I really love how gilgamesh is portrayed in Fate/Zero as opposed to his original portrayal. Not only is his very presence much more godlike (thanks to the stunning animation alone), but his attitude REALLY suits him. The little character traits, like how he refuses to stand on the same ground as his opponents, really make him feel like more of some kind of god-emperor type. It really suits the character, and really fits with the original legend the character was based on.

Holy Shit this episode was incredible. Now I believe all the hype this show has been getting lately.

The animation is really top notch and everything was perfect in this episode. Hopefully it continues and it might even be the next 10 on my list ^_^

Back to the Chapter, and the pictures that I posted. Im still trying to understand what a hell is Caster doing...


Maybe he's showing off his madness to Saber&Iris in the road....perhaps in novel chapter 6 or 7.

indeed, but the problem is the distortion of his face and body in the picture, it's very scary ;D
Im trying to figure it out what kind of madness this scene may be.

Loved how Alexander comforted Waver. Rider is such a bro! Even if the whole show was dedicated for Waver and Alexander, I would love it none the less. My fav. duo. ;D
Berserker is awesome in so many ways! Totally love him. ^^

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.


Considering that Saber had a unhealed arm and no functionality in her thumb, I am very amased that she managed to block of that black shadow beast!

Also Saber still have shown her special ability. She was going too but her master ordered her to stop and trust in her.

But yeah I think this is pretty amazingly animated, and beats Fate s/n by lots.

Awesome episode, 2 servants were fighting while every other master/servant were watching to gain information, then slowly one by one enter the fight, thanks to rider ^^

Yet another impressive episode! The fight between Archer and Berserker was spectacular. The slick action was just pure eye candy. Animation done to perfection by ufotable. Now if only they would also remake F/SN...

I never expected the Servants to have a grand meeting this way, only Caster was missing, while Assassin was secretly observing from the shadows. For a moment there, I thought Lancer's master would have been the first to die in the 4th Holy Grail War. Now I wonder who will be the first Master and the first Servant to fall. We know at the very least from watching F/SN that Kiritsugu and Kirei will survive this.

I'm seriously loving Rider here. He's such a wonderful balance to the rest of the cast: a great, bumbling king with a huge heart compared to the rather angsty remainder of the characters. Also loving everyone's big, fat egos.

That was intense! 6 servants in the same place at once, though only 5 showed face.

Rider doesn't seem that strong for some reason, tbh.

This is sooo much better than Fate Stay Night. Better animation, better music, dialogue and no annoying teenagers like Shiro running around.

Iskandar, you are so lovably audacious (that's an adverb I never thought I'd fix to that adjective). He and Waver are perfect comic relief (and the F/sn anime's attempts at comic relief, like Taiga, were just ill-fitting).

I'm on the fence about Berserker's CGI.

Yeah, without the Fate/Stay anime I'd never have read the VN either. So, yeah, I'll give Deen credit for that, I suppose. Leaving the action scenes aside, they could have adapted the story a hell of a lot better.

I'd never consider Shirou a "likable" character (though I DO consider him in the VN one of the best characterized protagonists and just overall one of the most interesting characters I've seen) but I can't help but think that Deen could have handled him a hell of a lot better. For lack of a better word, he came off as a prick in the anime. I don't know how you could feel the same way reading the VN.

Anyway, about this episode. Berserker getting run over and leaving the fight....doesn't it seem kind of obvious if you put 2 and 2 together that he *probably* left the fight because he couldn't continue on?

Also, anyone thinking they were going to have the real battles now are being pretty foolish. It was obvious this was just a tease, to get us fans even more interested than we already were and to introduce most of the servants' abilities....I'd say it worked.

agreed. After reading the Light novel, Shirou become a lot more likable, My only problem with him, is the fact that he fought against servants, and won.

really , servants are overpowers....how can a human, more, a kid , fight against heroes that pass their entire life in the battlefield, and can win a battle. ?





Man so many of these F/SN comments. Can't tell if you guys are even trolling or not that's how bad they are. But I'll refrain from ranting.

Anyway this is the Fate/zero thread right? Yeah Awesome episode yet again. Only 5 episodes in, but lif it keeps up this pace this series will easily get a 10/10.Would do anything to see a Ufotable HF adaption.

Also isn't it kind of a spoiler that

Seriously enough with the repetitive royal-fag trash talk, it's embarassing


Fight with berserker was godly, he has the best design out of the 7 as well.
Rider is my favorite character of the show so far.

4/5

PS: Kirei's sniper is more useless than tenten xD

Love this anime.
Gilgamesh reminds me of the Gold Saints of Saint Seiya lol


Lancer reminds me of Cu Chulainn in the Shin Megami Tensei franchise:

(yeah I know it's logical)

Berserker was awesome too.


Love this anime so far. Very enjoyable.

All the servants seem evenly matched so far excluding Assassin, but he's still alive so I cant really say that. xD

This!

Another epic episode, servant reunion on the battlefield.

@ Hyunckel: yeah, it's similar to Cu Chulainn from Megaten games. But the next Lancer is even more similar, blue hairs.

Jeanne'd'Arc was considered a holy virgin though. I think it fits, at least in the context with crazy Bluebeard :D

This episode deserves a 10/5.

Berserker vs Gilgamensh, Berserker vs Saber and finally, Iskandar beating the crap out of Berserker with his chariot was AWESOME.

Iskandar ftw.

The fight with berserker was crazy so much better that fate/stay berserker .
The war in fate/zero is taken far more seriously than fate/stay which is great in allows for a better story.

Beserker is sick! Glad that dude's servant isn't a joke ... although I feel bad knowing he won't win the holy grail (not a spoiler just something you can tell) ... Anyways good series so far and thank the fucking lord it isn't as bad as Fate/Stay Night.
