I'm really glad they're doing such a good job with Lancer. He really is a true gentleman.
Ok™

Argh!!! Why couldn't they air next week together with this week! The true awesomeness starts next week... Still this was one heck of a battle (albeit a bit too much talking). Ufotable did a spectacular job with the animation and the BGM. The crimson rose of exorcism and the golden rose of mortality at their finest!

well, there is a lot of talking in the Book as well. I'm not really surprised. Besides, Saber and Lancer are Knights, that respect each other and like to enjoy the battle at the most, so it's understandable all the conversation of them

So for the novel readers how do you think the battle was animated??

Maybe im a bit spoiled but non talking battles, so this was a bit slow for me...

So far the previous episodes have been amazing in storytelling and in animation, have high expectations for this one. This should be the first episode where there's actually fighting, so I'll have to see how they do with that.

Interesting to see their mindsets in a battle. But Saber's actual identity is actually pretty strong. They can assume that the sword is being hidden in order to preserve the identity of the servant, but most people wouldn't assume that King Arthur was female.
On the side note, why am I getting the vibe that Kiritsugu is going to kill Irisveil... Didn't see the homunculus theory coming but I guess it does make sense from when she said something along the lines of destined for this purpose.
Anyhow, it seems like Saber's pride got the best of her in that fight, but still she's portrayed way better than in Fate/stay night (anime).

So from that episode is appears that Fate/zero has fucking overpowered animation and art, it looks fucking amazing. Other than that, this really seems to be turning into an incredible anime, I might be being swayed too much by the animation but whatever.

actually, this is the only battle with a LOT of conversation, but for me, its better than in the novel. The narrative of the story focus in many characters, so yes, most of the battle was "cut" during the show, but i don't find it bad.

comparing to all the other battles of Fate stay/ night, i found this one much better.

Like I said last week in regards to the following,


The battle was something out of this world. I though I had seen the best of the best in the 5th war with the graphics and redrawn aspects of the BD and all. Was I deceived! This episode here beats all the fights itself of Fate Night Stay! The quality is already that of what I saw in the Bds. Let me spell it out for you:
The predecessor showing the example to what is to follow!
That none shall be superior than thee 4th war. The details and quality of them is what sets this fight apart from the many faults of the 5th’s wars. That of details and precision of details. Such as the pics show. Certainly such were in the previous series Fate Stay/Night but the problem was the quality of it. It just does not compare to this. That is a IMO and that is what an anime is supposed to do as it comes before its newest that of Fate Stay/Night. To set an example of superiority that indeed it was not Fate Stay/Night that was amazing it was the 4th War that was amazing and not 5th one. More later.

BTW Image Stitches in the spoiler
obviously all about Lancer and Saber!

Oh thx for the answer... I though they were cutting corners :)

Well for me plot (more than) animation... So Im ok :)

I was expection a full out battle ... (Or maybe because the last thing I watched was Karas LOL)

But yeah the attention to the details, like the ground, hair and all were great...

And this is why I think Rider is the best servant of this war. Sorry Saber, I love you but Rider is da best.


Loved the episode. Ufotable is really doing one of the best adaptation I have ever seen. Going to become my favorite studio if they continue with this gorgeous quality.

It is truly powerful~!
If you are are "some woman and children and mongrels", you would be attracted to the mystic face~!

Thought, Diarmuid wasn't really legendary at my place.......

Awesome episode! That was amazing animated, there's no way you can tell me the VN did that better :D I can't wait for the three-way dance next week, I wonder if it'll be a huge melee with the Servants pulling one another off their enemy to try and score the final blow themselves, or if Saber and Lancer will team up against the newcomer. Either way, this is an awesome and action-packed episode. :)

I must say, I've never even heard of Diarmund or whatever his Western name is. Some kinda cassanova-type dual-wielding roses? Sounds a bit fruity but whatevs :)

There was a lot of talking during the fight, but it's nice to have that fight analysis. Gotta love the delicious fight animation too.

Also, Rider being awesome once again. I'm happy.

That was one awesome fight! So much better than any of F/SN battles. Loved the backgrounds, the slow motion and everything else! It was so intense and this is only the first battle! I can't even imagine how the final battles will look like. Also, since there's no annoying teens shouting "Saber!" every second, it's much more enjoyable.
And I hate knowing that I won't be able to see next ep till another Saturday. One week wait is killing me.

Oh, and this made me laugh:

Saber was all over the place. And Lancer, wow, he did own her a couple of times. And then Rider...can't decide if the entrance was cool, or dumb. Probably cool.

Lancer's two spears are amazing. The battle just went back and forth until Rider jumped in. I wonder what's going to happen now that he revealed his identity. What will Kirei and Kiritsugu do now?

Looking forward to next episode.

I generally dislike fights that take up more than an episode, but this one was really good. It seems like Lancer is no pansy, and Saber was wrong to underestimate him.

Rider was so dramatic in ending that fight :D

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

I am speechless. This is shaping up to be one of best animes of all time. Little early I know, but I can just feel it. Also, Waver and Rider, best (comedic) duo period. Rider's entrance was pure win.

YES. YESSSS.This is a good fantasy anime!!! FINALLY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS!!! Goodbye, harem crap, magical girls and pathos everywhere!
-great characters (Iskander!!! I sooo love the joke about Bucephalus being real ox :) and Lancer with his love spot!!! I really am in love.)
-the MUSIC!!! fabulous, magnificent, fantastic! fits the battles and the mood of the series perfectly. the opening reminds me of Fullmetal Alchemist, ending - Slayers, dunno why.
-battle animation is pure win. the clouds, light, movement - sex for eyes.
-story. is. so. goddamn. fascinating. Can't wait for the next episode!

my god, I'm in LOVE.

Again, F/Z tops everything else this week.

I wish all adaptation were this good. So far, with 4 episodes, it's already rapidly becoming the best anime series I have seen in years....
