Why didnt Caster just make Archer kill himself using the command seals?


Didn't have the reaction speed + she was injured.
+ Independant action might've helped Archer
She just didnt realize what Archer was planning to do.

The important things were just as rushed as by DEEN.
The Caster backstory got as much attention as by DEEN.

But hey we got like five minutes of pointless kuizuki padding so its ok, right?

This episode should have been ~1,5 - 1,7 episodes.

Are people here seriously claiming that a Saturday morning cartoon villain like Caster ,whose entire motivation to obtain the grail was to live a happy life with his husbando, is a deep character?
Honestly, I enjoy her as a character, but I have never cared for her, not even when reading the VN.
But if you have VN info you HAVE to like her.Same with Shirou,Shinji,Rin and every char not named Sakura.

If all Caster wanted was a happy life with Kuzuki, why didnt she book a trip to Hawaii and flee Fukuyi?

nah, she's cooler than that. She'll go somewhere close to her homeland.
"There’s a wall between the normal and the abnormal—that way of thinking was wrong from the beginning. Of course, you have to differentiate between the normal and the abnormal, and you won’t be able to live if you don’t, but this and that are like bordering countries—over here and over there are connected." ~Senjougahara Hitagi~

There's no attention to Caster's backstory in deenmovie, here there's anime original scenes about her in 14 and Kuzuki speaking about her in 16.
And in the deenmovie, Kuzuki is a ghost in the entire movie, here One Punch Sensei is interesting.

Yes it was rushed.

If it was NOT as rushed, this would have ended with Caster beatdown by Rin at best or Caster getting skewered AT WORST.

No backstory at all is better than Gatorade Master filler, as well as people misunderstanding Caster into "She just wants to go home".
Kuizuki does not need more attention than he already has. He is not the one important here. Caster is.

You still haven't said what would make it NOT rushed. What would you do with those 3 extra minutes? More Lancer beating on Archer? That was displayed quite correctly. There's not a single other thing in the VN that could've been adapted in that extra time.

Please go ahead and map the events on the runtime of the episode.
Provide a table of time detailing the duration of each scene and reason for this duration.

Let's not over-exaggerate via denial.

EP 4 of first cour is the best episode so far. This is just..eh.. Temple confrontation level at best. This was not the worst episode of this cour so far(EP14 is outright worst of whole adaptation...), but by no means best either.

If you decide to hate an episode before it even airs, it's natural that you don't like it. That's why.

Great episode!

Rin using taijutsu to own Caster was really cool!

Archer just friggin REKT Caster and Kuzuki though. DAMN! And now going for Saber and Shirou XD No mercy :P

Caster really looks beautiful <3 Quite the sad scene of death she had. She really did love Kuzuki :(

Pretty sure, it was already said in episode 1.

A very good episode
Lancer was so awesome this episode.
Caster's sacrifice was sad.
Nice to learn more about Kuzuki, but without Caster's power he had no chance against Archer :(

Because people are different and and unanimous opinions would simply be much too boring for a place like this. The heated and toxic clash between those who love the episode and those who hate it keep this subforum entertaining every weekend.

No, no. That's wrong.

What I'm pointing out is the fact that the first result is 'Cú Chulainn'

^People implying that visuals are all that is needed for a good adaptation. I'd rather had FSN made in MS Paint but with proper storytelling.

Correct.
Once the contract is erased, so are the command spells the servants was under. The end of this ep should make it quite clear that that is one of reasons on why Archer did it.

Well if that fight between Lancer & Archer didn't satisfy anyone then you might as well question yourself to why you're still watching this.

Probably one of the best fights I have seen in a while.
