I may have been a bit harsh on it due to my strong distaste for certain overused and recycled stereotypes and techniques that pops up a lot in anime. The drawn out conversations during what should be a fight scene. Kiritsugu calling out Lancer's master's name before firing his gun, giving him time to raise his guard...
I know things like this are all staples in the medium, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating, especially when I expected better from F/Z.
By the sounds of the PV, somebody does actually die, so here's hoping they begin progressing the Holy Grail War a bit in the coming episodes.
I liked the latest episode of Fate/Zero, but my issues with it were much the same as yours. There are, admittedly, decently respectable in-canon reasons for nobody dying in these conflicts, but it nonetheless feels a bit cheap to me.
The next major battle in Fate/Zero better have someone actually getting eliminated from the Holy Grail war, or I'll be as critical as you were.
I think I remember reading one of your pet hates being the "boing" sound that boobs can make in anime? I'd say I agree with that, but I generally dislike breasts that bounce around too much in the first place. See: Highschool of the Dead.
Jiggle physics can be fun, but a dangerous tool in the hands of those that use it for evil. I honestly find DFC a bit boring though. I did appreciate Fate in MSLN though, but in StrikerS, well, both Nanoha and Fate had a MUCH better appeal... If only the season itself wasn't so dissapointing.
