I was being sarcastic before. The series showed us multiple times that it is better for him, as the Magus Killer to be emotionally detached.

Participating in the war was a mistake for all, not just him.


If the end result is him still feeling horrible about the whole wife sacrificing then isint him banging some other chick to try and become more detached kinda pointless.

Thats why it is only an attempt. He tried, but those 8 years he spent with them cant just go away like that.


So why not spend the most time you have with the one you love.If you know no matter what you will love this person and the love will not go away why not make some good of a bad situation and spend it together.Wouldint it be best to have some joy in those days before the end.Its going to hurt ether way.

Kotomine is as mischievous as always but that's to be expected I guess :)

They somehow managed to portray Iris x Saber relationship pretty well, such sadness in both of them yet they manage to enjoy every bit of their free time. Kiritsugu and Maiya scene was also good (now we know how Kiritsugu feels about Einzberns, no wonder he is so ambivalent).

Those passports were American, though? Did they change seat of Einzberns from Germany or was it only for their fake identities? (but I guess it's the color of their hair :D Every Japanese know that blonde "kinpatsu" foreigners are from U.S. :))

And on top of all that - THE music! Kajiura, I love you! Epic fight await us!

Japanese do know a lot about Germans, actually, who are also stereotypically blonde. But it's probably just some fake IDs Kiritsugu came up with. Maiya also has numerous identities. Her first one was "Hisau Maiya".

In the words of Rider: "Look! Things are about to begin."
"Let Justice Be Done!"

My Theme
I conclude that this theme is in fact good!

5/5

Episode gorgeous, the story goes really well. The narrative is engaging and the soundtrack accompanies beautifully. The drawings and scenes are excellent throughout, the animations are a spectacle. The characters stand out like stars.
I find really no flaw in this anime and it looks even more beautiful than I remembered.

Saber is the lamest of all servant. She is like a homely wife. I hope this isn't another version of Fate Stay Night that has Saber winning it all by the end. Rider's larger than life personality is friggin awesome and it would suck to see him lose to this stupid ass bitch servant. I am sure that will eventually happen, but I am praying it does not.

I don't think one can classify what happens in FSN as winning as much as closure.

Likely a 6/10. Its already lame that King Arthur has been reduced to a woman. They could have just called her Joan of Arc and I would have been fully on board with that character.

Thats sexist.

Except from having more yaoi vibes, having a male Saber(without the Fate/Proto scenario) wouldnt change anything.It would just make Gil pay attention to one more dude in FZ.

And there is no point in using the Arthurian legends if the character is Joan.

What is sexist? Objecting to portrayal of King Arthur as a female? I grew up watching King Arthur in several forms of media.

Watching a couple more episodes of this series has given me relief. I hated the Saber from Stay/Night, or more precisely the dynamic between her and her master. A dopey kid summons a waifu with subtle romance kind of scenario is nowhere to be found in this one and I am very happy with it. Still I would have preferred the male version of King Arthur battling it out against Alexander.

"reduced to a woman " is sexist.
So what?The point isnt the gender but the ideals and backstory.

And everyone grew up with King Arthur as a man.

2006 FSN isnt FSN or the "sequel" of FZ.

Does not mean everyone is equally attached to the legend. If someone portrayed Jesus as a female, a good number of people would go apeshit.

Anyways I am in the process of binge watching and the more I watch, the more I love this series. At this point, yes, I don't care Arthur is a female anymore. I respect this character Saber and her masters over the romcom combo of 06 FSN.

Why would anyone touch the noncanon fanfic of 2006 instead of watching the proper FSN(2014) before Zero, is beyond me.

Watched it long back. That series was the reason I never bothered to watch Zero. It took a strong recommendation from one of the Berserk fanboys and Guts idolizers on this site to convince me that Fate Zero was worth a serious watch. I am done with season 1 and deep into season 2, loving every moment of it.

Huh? And here I thought summoning a Servant meant only one in each class would appear to you, so how did he summon a whole effing guild of Assassins??
On a side note, Saber in a suit was... nice? I'm still trying to process it, she appeared more handsome than beautiful to be honest. And what's up with Kiritsugu two-timing with the other woman in suit? Expected better of him.
And btw, just WHERE IS KARIYA!???? I wanna see Berserker already!!

Didn't understand the kiss between Maiya and Kiritsugu.
Saber in a suit is yums.
Archer is yummier.
Lancer is just even more yummier.
Rider is the best, though.

I love Rider. I was worried it was Rider trying to fight Saber, I'm enjoying the Iri X Saber dynamic. Great episode, I loved Rider philosopher for life about living life to the fullest ... it even has me thinking. I'm enjoying this series.

Something I never understood is the kiss Maiya gave to Kiritsugu.

It was their try to soften the blow for Kiritsugu when
- a way to try to make him distance himself. Didn't exactly work.

Amazing episode!!!

Rider is just badass, Saber in a suit!!!

Tons of assassins, they already plan that Kirei and Tohsaka would act like they were enemies in order to lure others.

I'm already seeing lots of red herrings with Iris. Not gonna surprised on what will happen to her in the near future.

Can't wait for the next episode!

Alexander sure is a hot-headed servant. The Bill Clinton part was funny, I'm curious what he would have said about Trump. Waver is still an idiot.

So, there are various assassins and not just one.

Irisviel was cute this episode.

We got Lancer, who must be the servant of Archibald.

Kiritsugu is really cheating on Illya. Dunno why.

And since Saber has no spirit form, she is confined to physical form. That's why she didn't appear.

Saber looks good with her invisible sword. Let's see how the battle goes. Hyped for next episode.

If Saber wins, I want the next battle to be Rider vs Caster, Berserker vs Rider, Saber vs Archer(In all three, I hope the former wins) and then Saber vs Berserker. 154 hours or 6 days 10 hours remaining. Assuming that 7th day one servant died, this means that one servant dies per day, and on last day, the holy grail will be lifted(and servant dies accordingly due to fulfillment of wish, probably).

Let's hope for more action. I hope we get to see the use of 3 command spells and the assassins at church. Along with the master working with the servant.



Maybe something like this.

Without change,we end up becoming the very person we hate.


I was dead until the moment I met you. I was a powerless corpse pretending to be alive. Living without power, without the ability to change my course, was bound to lead me to a slow death.

Kirei is not siding with Tokiomi it seems.

I guess Kiritsugu just taking advantage of Einzbern family.
If 1 = 2, then everything is good.
