Re-watching this via Blu-rays. This episode is even better done than I remember it. Two scenes particularly stick out to me: Saber's discussion with Irisviel, about how she and Kiritsugu will never get along, was just really well written and the music made the scene even better.

The other scene is between Kiritsugu and Ilya. Without spoiling anything, there was pretty much a ton of foreshadowing there and Kiritsugu hugging her broke my heart.

Good episode, the kid's death was expected but still good. I always thought about this hope-to-despair terror, so Caster is very interesting.

4/5

Caster... I love you. That was beautiful, not going to lie.

And I hope that wasn't the last we see of Assassin, or that was just pathetic. Even though Gilgamesh has always been OP as fuck. LOL

He didnt even use any of his OP Noble Phantasms.It's the (True)Assassins of Fate/series that are weak as fuck.

Dat poor kid, I too almost had hope... Cthulhu invo was lol tho.

So I guess that just leaves out the berserker and the lancer. Iskander is pretty likeable so far. And I could eat Saber with my cornflakes of course. Hassan got owned big time, not sure if I want him to stay dead, or come back...

Holy shit, did Caster really summon the freaking Cthulhu?
That scenes were amazing, really.

The Assassin was cool too. Was he some kind of African warrior?
It is a shame he was "killed" by Archer (who have a horrible character design).

Yes, I am loving this anime.
The difference between the quality in Fate/Zero and the lack of quality in Fate/Stay is absurd.

BlueBeard looked hideous. But his skills are not to be underestimated, though.

Gilgamesh was awesome! And Hassan is too skilled to be killed that easily. I'm sure it was an illusion of some sort. Assassin are good at those.

Fucking epic episode I especially loved the last part with that killer and that new summoned demon or what you call it that called out for cthulhu fatagen! Super epic kid death if you ask me!

The total ending was quite a nice fight as well and what a great security system!

Great episode got to say I'm starting to like this anime!

Also the OP&ED are quite nice!

Omg!!! The kid!!! Oh my god that was so messed up, and I knew it was coming too ... ahhhh but no seriously feel bad for that kid. Also not sure what is up with the church dude, did he send his dude in to die on purpose? And somehow I still feel like he is that other dude's ally.

I only just started this series, and it's all right so far. Though I don't particularly like any of the characters so far. And the child death scene was awful. Poor kid. The sooner that caster guy and the serial killer are killed the better.

When I first saw Gilgamesh on F/SN, I thought he was Alexander the Great (Iskendar). It is good to see him too.

Btw, gilgamesh owned that beast.

Glad that they changed some of the servants [Rider, Assasin and Caster] from Fate Stay Night.. And Assasin was cool with his moves there. But damn it, Gilgamesh [a.k.a Archer now] totally killed him.

And Caster! Haha, he looks like the Hunchback. He is soo creepy together with his master. And Rider! Waaa.. I don't know but I love his confident attitude..

I must say, I'm looking forward to Gilgamesh or Saber - or better yet, Kiritsugu - dealing out some well-deserved justice to Castor and his master.

That scene with the kid was pretty awful, even if I knew what was coming T_T

I have seen this episode last week, and might as well share my thoughts:
I have to say, the light novel described a lot about Ryuunosuke before the anime shows his first appearance. Thing is, it was the narration providing the details, and the anime wouldn't provide details that the narration stated... yeah, read the original.
Other than that, it was a good 2nd episode. The scene that Caster did to the kid... Anime did it a lot more violent than I imagined while reading.

This series stays amazing folks! Right from the start marvelous interaction between Waver and Alexander! It even turned into the following,<img src="http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/e19c2a6c.jpg" alt="e19c2a6c.jpg" />
of whom expect a GIF in the club. It would EPIC hilarious IMO. I will add later something.

Oh wait, it's Waver. Pretty strange name.</div>Shame on you! Waver is a cool guy although he is chicken shit from his looks. Reminds me this guy from LineBarrel.
Oosran said:Rider's pretty cool though.</div>Fuck Rider! His real name Alexander The Great!

And how the boy got killed was really gruesome, it wasn't unexpected but it still made me cringe.
Welcome to nasuverse, the world of rape with spears, incest guro and a dozen of very well written bad endings that give you nightmares for weeks.
</div>Well it was not bad from the following,<img src="http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/2f831700.jpg" alt="2f831700.jpg" />
some blood and instant death. What was amazing is the kid's fear and portrayal of it.
On the other hand Gilgamesh in the following,<a href="http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/77b217cb.jpg">http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/77b217cb.jpg</a>
looks more bad ass than ever. However he can go fuck himself and I hope he dies terribly so I can smile and ROFL my ass off ever since UBW and what he did there. You know what I am talking about.
I see, thanks for info. That's all I will be needing.
Still wondering how the heck will they go about the Caster kids shit. You know what I am talking about. Well expect some bitching in regards to that. I already felt sour the second time with subs on the first episode.....
Let's see 6 year old girl found murdered. Yeah that already sounds bad enough. Here is my saying towards that fucko master of Caster: "You kill kids? I kill your kind fucko!" Yeah that's right! Fucking that shit head with Caster.
Same as Gilgamesh ripping out the heart of Illiya! Sick shit! You know I tired to see it again to see my reaction but I could not finish it. It is the sickest shit ever in Fate. I wonder TBH if there is really sicker shit even in Fate Zero other than the kids and in Heaven's Feel.
Nice chatting so far.
kaimax said:Lol, am I only the one who is thinking that Assassin got killed "way" to easy?</div>No me too but then again it's probably a fake illusion. Assassins do that. It could be a doppelganger that is nothing more than a puppet controlled by the real assassin.
For me the following,<img src="http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2010/0b2b325c.jpg" alt="0b2b325c.jpg" />
is what makes Assassin nice, when you find out a little more about him outside the mask. That pic alone proves that Assassin was a royal guard of some Arabic king of whom shit happened and he got most likely exiled for since the punishment would be death most likely.
Like Fai said about Arthur and me about Assassin, the ED does give out homage to the characters for sure.</div>


favorite scene in second picture :3 it has been so long not seeing this kind of blood :3

Gilles de Rais was the last guy I expected to be in this anime. xD
The scene where he killed that kid made me jump. lol I kinda expected it though since he mentioned Cthulu.

Also, Ilya is so fuckin cute. >_<

Lol @ assassin getting cocky, then killing owned right after... Rider seems pretty cool, and Caster was pretty insane, letting the kid go from terrified to amazingly hopeful/happy, to utter despair. But why would he go for his former master? Good episode.

I can already assume that Saber wins this Holy Grail War. I haven't seen these servants before, but I've seen Saber with the other types of servants.

I wonder if the Assassin is out now that he was defeated by Archer or he will have a miraculous comeback . I didn't really understood all rules of this war.

The father and daughter moment was adorable. I hope Kiritsugu will win, but I can change my mind anytime .

I'm really liking the indentity of the servants so far. They were all very interesting people.

Alexander the Great is badass :D Interesting personality for him :)
Hassan-i Sabbah, the "original" assassin, huh? Poor bastard got fucked up so fast. I bet it was only an illusion though.
Damn for a minute there I really hoped that Caster was gonna let the kid go, but as soon as the kid slowly walked out it became obvious what was gonna happen :S I'm not ever surprised after hearing that Caster is actually Bluebeard (also lol at the cthulhu incantation).
I already know Gilgamesh, guess he is gonna be the main boss again, though it was pretty much told in the flashbacks F/SN.
Arturia is also obviously back. Her backstory was interesting in F/SN, though I didn't like her very much. I guess she was okay. Hope she is gonna be a better main character now.
And I have no idea about Berserker and Lancer so far. I wonder who they are gonna be.

Kotomine is already taking action. Just like him not to wait and start moving. The music during the sequence with Assassin really brought out the moment. Illya with Kiritsugu was again soo cute. I guess knowing how they are grown up makes it even more enjoyable to see them when they're little.

This series is picking up pretty fast after the long and confusing first episode. Great action and interesting character interaction, even if two of the characters are among the most horrible and loathsome characters I've ever seen in an anime. I am honestly looking forward to see who ends up fighting them though.

Looking forward to the next episode.
