Anime makes him look way too good.

How exactly? Archer can't take Kuzuki AND Caster?

He clearly had the upper hand in that fight and he STILL chose to betray her.


He saved her from being killed there. That will be enough for people.
Also no. They did not have a chance against age of gods magician.

Wait for raws and see how right I am.

Everyone is enjoying teh ep like the best one so far and then there is that one guy.....

Not much to add to what others said.

Well I dint like the ED song and except from teh archer and ShirouxRin scenes the Ed lacked visuals as well.


Ignore list if you really hate his salt lol. I find it bearable because of the hype around me~

It is how it looks in anime.

VN makes it very clear that ARcher is just an asshole who did that just because.
Anime leaves way too many doubts about it.

Thats not how it looked. Caster was getting rekt. If Archer didn't betray her, he could of mostlikely killed kuizuki and Caster would have been stunned/ shocked.

She seemed to underestimate Rin. Archer is a lot more cautious than saber when it comes to close combat, not to mention kuizuki was going for Rin, not Archer. The fight was easily won imo if he didnt betray.

Not really, no. Archer had absolutely no reason to betray Rin there. But he still did.

Caster getting rekt is outright infuriatinglyridiculous. That was such a fucking RIN wank.

Even more than Saber taking one berserker's life.


Rin is good and brilliant sure.
But she is god damn Shinji compared to age of gods magicians.

She made her fallback.

And yeah it was going nowhere hence you are proving my archer whitewashing point.

Actually, forgive me if I may, but from what I saw, the scuffle was a bit leaning on Rin's shizz and Castah wasn't really all in "fight-mode" so yeah.

Gods, the OP. I can't get to like it.

Structure-wise it is such aldnoah OP rip off.
Visuals are nice and all but it just does not flow and lacks the badass beat that previous OP had.

UBW OP should get me fired up for all the badassery, not make me want to sleep.
Hell Kalafina ED is better and I hate Kalafina mostly.

Caster got surprised and barely dodged some gems and then was falling bakcwards to avoid them.

If itw as faithful to VN, an all out magical attack By rin would be easily deflected by Caster reading a seiba porn magazine

So? Mages from the age of gods can't be startled or be taken by surprise or something?

It was going nowhere FOR RIN, not for Archer. He could've taken them both.

Caster getting rekt? She didn't look bothered in the slightest.

Besides, it is Rin's gem we're talking about here, and considering what'll happen later...well, I wouldn't say it's much of a wank at all, really.

Interesting question. I will wait for now.

I sincerely hope it's not how Fai is saying it is since "Tripping on a rock and falling on his face" will be a very very dumb change.

I don't know why this is an argument. The VN made it clear Caster has 0 problems dealing with Rin's gems.

I'm not going to get into this though, not worth.

Magically Rin can't match Caster. it is outright stated in VN.
These are some shitty low level gems too.

Archer just choosed the better course of action, in the bad ending when Shirou shows up early, he says why Shirou didn't wait a little longer so they could escape.

She wasn't surprised by magic, she was surprised by Rin's blinding tactics.

Rin was able to gain a temporary advantage using her brain not her magic.

she flintched, and was not on the offensive. She wasnt hurt, but she did nothing.

my only point is that rin was not in any danger if Archer did his job (in the anime adaptation).

caster was in no position to respond at the speed the fight progressed, kuizuki could of been disposed as she regained herself.

I missed the stream. But it sounds like the biggest problems were:

- Rin fighting equally with Caster? Wat?
- Tonal change of Archer's betrayal, anime-only viewers might even misunderstand his motives (though it will come to light later when he explains why he did it).
- Yet again more tsundere violence from Rin.

Will post thoughts when I see the episode... seems like it's as good as cour 1's middle episodes, but nowhere near as good as ep 0/1.

^Mostly yes.
Also most of Shirou scenes from this part were cut and most of church betrayal is from RIn's pov.

Caster interceptes Rin's jewels like an anti homing device and is just surprised by the stun grenadejewel and by the attacks that followed while she was under its effect. She never change her expression before that.Then Kuzuki moved in.
Where the fuck is the rekt part?

The stun part. in the VN Rin never stood a remote chance, never phased her.

Not to mention in that stun duration, Kuizuki would be dead if archer moved/ targeted him. the point is Rin was never in danger if Archer stayed on her side. if he was able to move to backhand rin in that time before caster even moving an inch, he could of easily killed kuizuki.

Marvelous! Bravo! Oh Bravo!

It makes my eyes wet even knowing everything beforehand.
Ufotable is even working on their mistakes. I can hear some OST now! (Though still no Kienai Omoi even in the graveyard scnene :/ ) Shirou has more monologues, so that certain Priests become happy.

Also, ED is no longer a F/Z ED remix, and Archer became even more GAR.

I just want to give it 10/10 right away.
