Damn, they put a lot of budget into the OP song. Even a bit of that classic Saber's Exalibur as part of it.

Poor saber in the beginning though. She is still held captive by...Caster. Rin's narrative is interesting to say the least and overall, I thought the chemistry between her and Archer is good. Rin's fight against Caster was nice too.

Of course we also get her reunion with Shiro.

Archer so gar:

OP2 is so much better than OP1, just because it's Aimer.

>Ever Present Feeling

Betrayal and graveyard scene already? This is really frigging fast-paced. 2nd half should've been a separate episode.

;;


ED is pretty typical for Kalafina.

Kinda dissapoint, tbh

Shirou's monologue at the start was nice, as far as I could tell, will have to wait for subs to see though.
I actually rather liked the OP.
Shit, did we just get a shot of Archer in life in the ED? That looked nice. Or GAR, rather.
Lol that Saber ecchi face.
Shirou's didn't look half bad in his entrance in the Church scene.
No ever-present feeling, am disappoint.
Next is confirmed to be a Caster episode, it seems. Pretty rushed, as some said, but not too bad otherwise.

- The pre-op scene was great. Shirou finaly got a monologue longer than 10 seconds and it was first in whole show.
- The OP is way too mellow. Should have been the ending. And ending should have been the OP. This is way too disappointing.
- Oh yay the dream and yet again unclear. Yet again trimmed. Yet again the main important concepts not explained.
- Ufo changing scene locations again. Yeah. Rin would TOTALLY sleep outside her boundary field GREAT CHOICE -_-
- The episode contained way too many malegaze shots again btut oh well, Miura gotta miura.
- At least Archer's betrayal is MOSTLY intact, but with shitty fight added in...And Shirou's pov AGAIN. YAY FUCKING YAY FUCKING HELL.
- Rin Wank -__- Rin should not even be able to surprise Caster at this point. LEt alone catch her offguard with magic.
- SHirou fares worse than in VN. And he runs stumbling on fucking rocks(WHAT THE FUCK) and falling instead of badass entrance after inner monologue. Fuck mnoonologues. Id take the entrance alone -__
- Oh look another change to make Shirou morepassive - TOhsaka bullying him into the Sitting down.
- Why the fuck this is not in graveyard...why the fuck this is not in graveyard. why the fuck this is not in graveyard.
- And let's add more typical tsundere violence instead of serene scene like in VN. What the fuck is miura's obsession with making it more generic?
- ED Should have been the OP.

Why was most of EP Rin POV instead of main character POV? WHY?
This was perfect episode to add in some Shirou pov and insights to make him seem better character than he is in this anime.
Instead it was mostly Rin POV. -_-

This pretty much confirms most of prescreening spoilers too, barring certain details.

4/5 for the episode still for action alone. 3/5 if I were to rate as stand-alone adaptation, but this clearly is not.

This ep felt so fast to me.

Idk what it was.

not sure if it was rushed, or just actually well paced compared to first season.

either way I enjoyed it. 4/5.

Oh, and OP and EDs were fantastic. The OP in particular was kickass. GG salt, make way for my hype~

That didn't feel like 20+ mins. That felt like 5 >:(

It was very rushed. They cut out like three Shirou-POV scenes in between Church and Rin'talk which for some fucking reason happened outside where Rin would N EVER sleep -_-

Church part also trimmed away all of Shirou POV for whatever reason too.

They need to use better OST's when fights happens. It's so quiet.

That's my only complaint, time to wait for the subs I guess.

Felt a bit rushed, but otherwise, it was TOTALLY EPIC! Although Archer, why must you betray your Master like that? ;v;

Ah well. The OP and the ED are totally awesome, I must admit, though I'd been hoping just a bit that the ED would focus more on all seven Servants as with F/Z...but that's just how it is, I suppose~

Apart from the brisk pace, that was pretty sweet. That archer backhand was brutal, Especially since Rin was Moe/10 this Ep. such cute. wow

I felt the betrayal was done pretty well, here's to some more caster next ep.

Still laughing hysterically at Miura deciding to make Shirou stumble on fucking rocks in one of his most badass scenes. What the fuck.

also they REALLY fucked up with Church basement. It is EXACTLY SPELLED OUT IN FATE that it is too small for any bigger confrontation. That looked like a fucking ballroom.

That took me by surprise tbh. But it was a good decision, to show that Archer really did betray Rin.

No. Whole fight was original.

Which is why Archer's betrayal feels Less brutal because it looks as if he is saving them(he is not)

Graveyard is safer and less full of people than random fucking park where anyone could stumble upon her.

Frankly I expected them to end this episode on Archer betraying them.
This pacing literally means FILLER EPISODES IN SECOND HALF OF COUR.
If they are Shirou focused episodes mant to salvage hischaracter -sure.
If not then what the fuck.

lol at Fai's BS delusions.


lightly pushing someone = "TYPICAL TSUN VIOLENCE"

Shirou rolling to lighten the impact from the landing (something every free-runner does) = "SHIROU STUMBLING LIKE AN IDIOT"

Back to Back is in some random location instead of graveyard = "MIURA HOW COULD YOU NOT MAKE A 1:1 CABON COPY?!"


Oh, sorry, all of the capsed is "objective", while the actual things are delusions, according to Fai. Just sayin'

Just ignore Fai. Consider this the "burial" of the salt. Rest in Piece, salt.

---




This episode was great. It may seem rushed, but I don't think anything of importance in terms of actual scenes is missing here (can't say anything about dialogue yet, need subs for that). It's also good to see that those ridiculous "spoilers" were completely made up. We lost 1 week of time based on fabrications, but w/e, this episode makes it up again!

Oh come on. Rin gets slapped away by caster, Shirou is shown having troubles projecting, they are surrounded by skeletons

ARcher: Oh I joined you but you have to let them go.

FOr fucks sake.

In VN it was literally

Rin and ARcher stAND off against Kuizuki
Rin: Okay let's do something.
ARcher: TROLOLOL, BYE BITCH

Well shit, they actually handled Archer's betrayal pretty much perfectly! I'm glad the spoilers for that were fake. No Ever Present Feeling is a small minus, but they still made Rin and Shirou freaking adorable together. The OP and ED are both WAAAY superior to the 1st cour's IMO.

Overall, 5/5 episode, we're in for a great 2nd half if ufotable keeps this quality up.

Rin is all confident and smug when Archer comes up but then she gets the backhand of evil to the face.

But Archer betrayed them before they were getting rekt indicating he already wanted to betray them even before that.

In this he doe that the moment Rin is about to get rekt. Talk about timing.
