WTF !? they are talking about magus', the council, several types of spells and mastering the elements as if it was normal everyday things.
we didn't even get an introduction to this new world (the one with the magic, not the one with the school and stuff ;) )
they simply mentions it as if it has always been there and is known by everyone
kind of confusing and rash if you ask me ... don't get me wrong I really like that stuff and find it great that is in the Anime, I just miss an introduction/explanation to it.

Less action, and too much talking. Overall the episode was pretty boring but Saber was pretty much enough for me! :P

Maaaaaaaan I love back stories!!!! Thou the episode was nto filled with action like the two previous ones, the action scenes it had were worthwhile and the whole talk about the rules of The War of The Holy Grail were throughoutly explained for anyone to understand them.... Thou the Origin of the magic, the Holy Frail and the Servants is not clearly known yet, we know now why all this stuff is happening... That's enough for me to make me happy and realize that in this fantastic/supernaatural world exist things such as powerful things to grant you any wish you want.... Nice Premise.... And the old geezer at the Church is the devil... I'm pretty sure of that.... Nice warm up epi

I wonder who the other masters and servants are.

This show is getting interesting.. well, that is if you don't mind talking. Thankfully, I don't.

I wonder how powerful Emiya will get (if at all). Overall I kind of feel like we are just thrust into this magical world.

I'm glad Emiya doesn't seem like a huge weenie like I thought he would be, thank goodness. But I'm still iffy on the show in general, I don't know if I'm supposed to know "why" this battle is taking place anyway, besides gaining the holy grail. Why is it a tradition anyway? Idk. Saber seems to be really interesting, I like her so far.

Episode was pretty boring though. Glad Rin's there<3

Agreed ^^

You know, I didn't mind the talking that much. I think it's an interesting game and situation Emiya is in and enjoyed the explanation. It's like the exposition in a novel.

Also, the fighting is pretty great.

So far this show is reminding me of everything I hated about Toaru Majutsu no Index -- mounds of boring exposition about the bizarro magical religion everyone is wrapped up in. Hopefully it will separate itself from Index by not throwing in a whole lot more of these longwinded explanation sections throughout the series.

Also, the dub dialogue for Kirei Kotomine's speech to Emiya is pretty stupidly inconsistant:
"If you truly want to give up your status as master your only option is to obtain the grail and make your wish."
Then later...
"This is your last chance, Shiro Emia. Time to decide -- will you or will you not be a master in the holy grail wars?"

I liked this episode. I know many people get bored with the talking but then I see them complain about the fact that things were not completely explained. If it had no talking, nothing would be explained! Background info is needed and I find it great.

Nice to see that there is actually an episode that gives you an overall idea of the setting rather than bits here and there. They sure love their cliffhangers...

WOW... After finishing the third route in the game and going to the anime...
Fate/Stay Night doesn't work as well as an anime. The game is several billion times better.

I have a feeling that Emiya will change a lot during this war.
xP

Saber shows that a woman does not need to dress up like a slut to be beautiful.

A decent episode full of information, I disliked these kind of informative episodes in the prequel but this seemed to be right so early in the beginning, especially the end preparing us for a massive battle as the Servant from Ilya seems quite strong, could the servant be Berserker or is this a new servant?

Watching this after completing the game... it is actually pretty nice to see those scenes in motion :) (though they are moving through story pretty fast.. but I get it why - Fate storyarc alone does have about 60-70 hours of gameplay (mostly voiced) and this series is only around 9 hours (24eps) long.
But they are having every important part in the anime so far.

The Fate route is about 15 hours. The whole game together takes about 70 hours.

So he took his father place and now supervises the war. I'm pretty sure he will try to interfere somehow so it should be interesting.

This anime get so much unneeded hate. I will try the VN later (I already downloaded it) after I finish FSN and FZ. Then I will judge. Right now I am really liking this anime despite what others say. Good episode.

Well we got our rules and background episode with a dash of fighting in the begging.The way the priest was presented it seems like hes a bad guy or going to do something bad later on.I wonder since they say the servents are legendary heroes does that mean they pick them up from their time frame while in the middle of something or do they come from the grave like ghost.
