THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Holy shit Alexander, you are the broest of bros.

It also looks like Caster has the wrong idea about Saber.

They really needed this OST for Berserker. Yuki Kajiura is good, but this is better.
Ok™

^I disagree. This song is good, but it doesn't suit the scene. And the song from the episode was awesome as well.

Amazing episode. And Rider is da best!

I TOTALLY agree. Best fucking episode and shame on studio DEEN for butchering what could have potentially been one of the BEST series.

Damn, Ufotable rly made gilgamesh look like a total KING. So sparkly even his spirit form is more sparkly than others. And gate of babylon actually contains variety (unlike DEEN). I can see harpe, houtengeki and vajra.

1 thing I didn't rly like was the CG berserker but at least the animation (esp the grabbing of gate of babylon) looked fluid enough and the BGM was epic. Also Knight of honor's black veins and for someone's glory's shroud were pulled off perfectly.

All in all totally what I was looking forward to, didn't disappoint as usual!

It's Urobuchi who truly made Gilgamesh king. In here, Gilgamesh has just too much Haki compare to original visual novel.

Yep but still props to ufotable for nicely interpreting and animating Urobuchi's writing. Whenever I had to look back at DEEN's Gilgamesh my heart dies just a little

The real Joan of Arc, from the cancelled Online game Fate/Apocryhpa


Designed by Nasu himsel. No wonder Caster thought that Saber was her, she really looks similar.

What the hell is every body talking about the "best episode of the year" It was just a fight episode. A good one, but that doesn't deserve the title of episode of the year

Gilgamesh vs Berserker was really well done but the CG for Berserker doesn't fit with the rest imo.

A little more fighting between Gilgamesh and Berserker would be great but it then would spoiled the fun. fate s/n is noway as good as this one .

Quality episode! Just wished that Berserker wasn't CG, actually wanted him to be drawn out like the rest of the cast although it's understandable what ufotable is trying to convey here.

I wish people would stop taking everything in that wiki at face value. "Design" obviously refers to the character itself and its skills, Scroll down, look at Karna, see who designed that, compare art styles :D -> knowledge.

K, so lets see.

they cut off some of the best lines of the novel, especially some of Rider's Quotes.

Not bad at all, they create a different relationship between saber and Rider, something more interesting to see.

Seyuu of Caster is freak and scary , i was waiting him to say " MY PRECIOUS!!!"

Berserker, well, the CG looks unnatural most of the time, except for those distant cameras , and a few scenes like the mad bulls .
overall, i like it, but considering that i read the book, i'm a little bit disapointed.

I was expecting more.
4/5

*gasp*
Fate/Zero is in my top 20 as we speak.

It was cool how Rider stood up for Waver Velvet.
And loved the tension b/t the 5 Servants that showed themselves, they all acted like a couple of friends even though they're going to kill each other. nice touch.

THIS EPISODE ROCK SOOO MUCH!!!!
the fight between beserker and giglamesh was very good, some people saying the don't like the cg of beserker, but personally, i really do love it!!
and Rider is just awesome!!! Damn, he's too fast, and i'm getting worried beserker's master will die soon...
and Caster has SOO GOT THE WRONG IDEA!!! DX
AMAZING episode, and recently, the price tag was announced for the box set... i'm so tempted to buy it, even if i get bankrupted!!! XD

I don't see anything wrong with the CG. In fact, I was expecting Berserker to be animated this way because of how he was described as in the novels -

"Just like an off-focus photograph, the outlines of the black armor were always shifting, like a mist, and you would sometime see it double or triple. Somehow, the material seemed to be made out of a hallucination."

I think CG is a really good method for giving off that otherwordly feel in anime. The fights looked brilliant as well, so no complaints from me.

Truly, Studio DEEN disgraced FSN. We need a remake of FSN!! I really loved this episode; seriously, Fate Zero never stops to amaze me. Artwork was beautiful, and I was hooked throughout the entire episode. For a moment there, I really thought Lancer's master was about to be killed.

Only thing I have to say is that Saber is surprisingly weak this time around, whereas in FSN, she was supposed to be the strongest servant.

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

So this is turning out to be way better then Fate/ Stay Night.

I think berserker fit the bill perfectly. The CG gave me the feel that i wanted, the feel that he wasn't like the rest of the servants.

In FSN, Saber had the handicap of having Shirou as her master, so that's understandable. Here in FZ, I'm really not sure what's going on. She's definitely one of the strongest servants, but she's always gets screwed over somehow.

it's a battle of strategy, more than brutal strength.
saber is wounded, so she can't fight against berserker properly, it's understandable.

Like too if she have long hair or no hair to look like a man.

Berserker has a really cool power. Saber is screwed unless she kills Lancer. Five servants at once is crazy.
