Excellent episode. More exposition, but also plenty of action.

Lancer's summoning sequence is skipped. But judging by the intro, Archibald is going to be Lancer's master. The field is pretty stacked, but it looks like good ol' Gilgamesh is still quite ridiculous.

I also liked the illustrations for the ending. Quite fitting and got me guessing about the identities of the servants.

Love the ED, although it's a bunch of stills. I find it much better than the OP.

This EP was good, loving dat Caster.

Yuna Amakura 2011-10-08 11:52

That was a good episode. It made me remember why I despised Uryuu and Caster so much ;X
Also, the OST is simply glorious. And the ending was awesome.
Things keep getting better and better.
ED, aside from song itself, is awesome.

From what I heard, Gilgamesh will be "less" of a dickhead around this time around but to be honest, in the face of mostly asshole master, it is not that hard to lose in the complete dickhead competition.

ROFL, yes, I think it's mostly that :heh:

Great episode. I love the end but the op is still better for me. Btw, can someone tell me what Iri excatly said to Saber about Kiritsugu. In a french translation, I have something like :

"Between Kiristugu and Arthuria there is a huge gap"

When for the english one it's : There will be no eyes contact or something like that. So I think the best one is the second one but I'm not sure.

Highlight of the episode, those with Caster in it. Also lolilya. She got more animation budget than Taiga in all of her appearances in Carnival Phantasm.

I thought it's something like they don't see eye to eye, meaning their philosophies are too different for them to cooperate.

What the Assassin's scene made me think of

Ok, thanks both of you :) . So it's the english one which is correct which is not surprising. Oh and yeah, it's great to see Illya like that :D

alumnox 2011-10-08 12:52

I love those "hand made" backgrounds... stills of course but they add a lot to the visual experience.

The frame rate during the futile incursion of assassin was pretty good, nothing to say OMG but still better than other premiers I saw for this season.

blue_sora 2011-10-08 13:03

I was wearing earphones while watching the episode and at the scene when the little kid stared at the door I took the earphones out and hold it a distance away from my ears. Best decision I ever made, I never read the novels just a few pages but I knew something terrible will happen to him. Learned that lesson from Madoka.

Eh, I thought Kotomine will never betray Tohsaka, or maybe after a few days into the battle. Very fast for someone who has no desire for the Grail.

hero147 2011-10-08 13:07

Well...One down..I think? I love fate zero. =D

There are so many despicable people in this tournament. But kiritsugu got painted in a positive light this episode. I'm starting to like him a lot.

Laith 2011-10-08 13:09

Rider is the best, Uryu and Caster are the best, Assassin when used properly is pretty awesome and Archer is the best.

Man a great episode all around.

Justice Knight 2011-10-08 13:47

rofl kotomine just sent assasin to hell and gilgamesh is imba as expect rofl

serenade_beta 2011-10-08 14:24

Assassin dead already? :heh:
At least he got to show some of his skills to the audience before he got defeated instantly.

The Rider pair is fun to watch.
The Caster pair is... also interesting to watch, in a sickening way though. (Who is this Caster based off... I wonder if they will tell...)

Loli (more than usual) Iriya was as cute as usual.
Loliya?

ED is pretty awesome, with the images of the Servants' pasts.

''Blue beard'' Gilles de Rais

He says who he's based off. Bluebeard, if I remember the legend correctly, had a bunch of wives, and killed them off in gruesome ways. Some story from the 1600s.
