Perfect anime episode 10/10. May be reduced to 9/10 if there are not at least additional 3 min in the BD version, but still nothing to complain about! I can already say that without watching the subs, because I know what the chracters are saying in most scenes anyway. Most anime-only viewers will surely 100% objectively have the same opinion, once subs are out!

HYPE IT UP!

I do selfishly hope the HF movies are good adaptations without miura at the helm.

Mod Edit: Removed VN comparison.

ufo likes to switch directors a lot, so it's almost guaranteed that Miura won't be directing HF.

He will direct HA instead. :p

Don't even joke about that. That would be disastrous.


Really? Miura is actually pretty good with SoL stuff, he'd be fine for most of F/HA.

That's absolutely true, but I'm scared for the not SoL stuff. HA's core story is so badass that I'm willing to sacrifice all of the comedy scenes (which are this "most" of HA) to see it adapted probably.

Going by official translations so far:

The flashback to kuizuki REALLY is pointless and wont help understanding caster at all. Even more it will lead to even more people misunderstanding her goal as "getting home"...
Shirou's monologue barely even showcases his analytical skills that we have been missing so far(made even worse by having Rin effortlessly deflect Caster's attacks)
Lancer's killing intent towards archer is barely even portrayed.
Gaebolg looking like a nuke was just silly, michael bay level silly. And archer i WAY TOO CALM.
Did not notice Shirou trippping again the first time I watched -___-
Beyond a small hint, not even an indication what Caster's wish is, nor what her motivation is.

Caster really did get shafted it seems. Horribly so.

Ufotable really delivered on GB vs RA- I loved how they showed the layers breaking and everything. It was also pretty nice to see some internal thought too. Although it WAS somewhat of a rushed episode. Also I doubt anyone would feel anything for Caster and Kuzuki, their back stories were flubbed. But whatever, I'll still give this one a solid 5/5.

They didnt have actual backstories in FSN.Everything that makes that couple work is in FHA.

You can still feel something in UBW VN but depends on how easy you are at getting feels(and yes it is easy for me)

I wasn't talking about the VN or anything else. I just feel in the anime they did a poor job of making the viewer care for Caster. But anyways, its a non issue now.

Couple of questions.

How in the hell did Archer get all his Mana back after he was beaten by Lancer?

Why was Kazuki so weak against Archer, when he embarrassed Saber?

So all this time, Archer could send swords like projectiles like Gilgamesh. Why the hell didn't he use it earlier?

And I am saying that even in the VN it depend on the person if they care about her.Not the anime's fault.

He had enough left for summoning those swords. Iirc, he had around 10% of his mana left still.

Kazuki didn't have caster's enhancements on his body, since she died.

Probably saw no need for it.

Plus he gets infinite refills for being a Caster member... for however long that lasted.

It was said during Kuzuki vs Saber, that Kuzuki was not a magus, and renforced by magic (Caster) and Rin said he got Saber by surprise.

Without surprise and Caster's renforcement, he lost against Archer.

His Master Is Caster.He has tons of supply.Only way he could have more is to have Ilya as a Master.
And You saw how fast Caster healed when Archer shot he down in cour 1.Archer had way more time to heal using mana.

Without Caster,Kuzuki isnt a threat to Servants.You saw that his hands stopped glowing after her death.

Mana consumption.And one doesnt reveal all his powers since the first fight.He was doing well even without them.

1. With Caster massive mana reserves Archer can easily replenish his own mana.
2. Kuzuki was buffed by Casters strengthening magic, without it he cannot match servants.
3. I dunno really. According to Nasu sword spam is useless unless its gilgamesh who does it.

The fight between Archer and Lancer was as cool as I expected! Especially the ending!

Archer still annoys me a bit. I thought he would go back to Rin's side but apparently he is still a bitch...

1)Caster was his master, He had enough mana to regenerate.2)Kuzuki beat Saber with Casters enhancements. 3) He's a manipulative and tricky sort of person, of course he'd have another card up his sleeve.

Oh yeah, the GAY BULGE!! Finally! :D
Man, Lancer sure is damn powerful. Too bad they have that E luck. Can't win anything with an E luck, destiny will just fuck you over and over... Well, he did win that fight, somehow. Don't go Lancer, we need you to do awesome and flashy things :(

Rin bring fist fight into a magic fight! She's so awesome. Damn, if only Shirou wasn't as weak, she could have done it. Just look at those move, she's no Kuzuki, but she can break your bones.

So we now have a doule betrayal. Goddamnit Archer, just when you could have redemned yourself...

Well, I'm not gonna make an episode album for this one, since a lot of people are probably going to do .webm of all those cool scenes and because I need to go take a shower (yeah, that's a lame ass excuse). So instead, here's my Rin album of thise episode : http://imgur.com/a/bbonI

Then why didn't he check up on Rin and Shirou?

All that talk about wanting a master like Rin, liking how straight forward Shirou is and enjoying working with the two of them and he leaves after not killing Archer?

You would think forming a temporary alliance with two people, would entail that both you keep the parties involved in the alliance alive.

If Caster is dead, they didn't need him.
He didn't know, Archer want to kill Shirou.

I thought it was a great episode. Sad (but not to sad) to see Caster go. Damn she was beautiful underneath that robe.

That fight with Lancer vs Archer was alright, but that Gae Bolg vs Rho Aias was crazy. They used like two anime seasons budget for that scene.

So I'm guessing next episode will be Saber vs Archer round 2 maybe. Nevertheless happy to see Saber again.

The plan is to kill Caster.

And for Lancer to make Archer get on his knees before Rin.

He thought he accomplished both.There is no reason to think otherwise.

Go through all their interactions,thoughts on SHirou's ideal and their connection.It will suddenly make sense.
