The only thing that saved this one from being absolutely bad was Tiger's reactions and bitchy Tohsaka (yes, the "skirt scene" was pretty damn funny). 8)

Honestly, I was expecting so much more from FSN, but this is absolutely no good. I simply don't want to watch another uneventful Saber/Shiro conversation where she is being deadly serious for no reason and he is being mindnumbingly obtuse.

There is still one reason to watch this. i.e. the mysteries of the Servants and the battles, but if they'll be doing it this way, then I'll be severely disappointed.
Jeez if this is the reaction of folks if there is a comedy based episode, just think of the teeth gnashing when actual ROMANCE is involved

Rin's fighting with her own internal conflict as well. She obviously doesn't want to kill Shirou, but her duty as a master demands her to kill him the next time they meet. Archer gave her the push on the roof when he asked Rin what she'd do if a clueless Shirou shows up in front of her again, and she answered "I'll kill him."

As a strategy, what Archer is advocating has it's flaws. You already have the lolli gunning for Rin. It makes much more sense to form a temporary alliance to kill the major threat...then backstab your ally in the end.

It might not even be necessary, since Shiro would be willing to conceed victory to Rin.

So...does Archer have another motive to wanting Shirou offed? Either he's jealous of Rin's attentions toward Shiro or maybe he wants Saber? Hmmm...there's nothing in the rules against a servant to own another servant is there?

Careful now you're treading in dangerous specualtion territory.

I'll just say that if they are going in the direction I think they are, this series is only going to get better and better. Hopefully they change a few things along the way though.

But you're not telling which question is correct, eh Sushi-sama?

It'll come out in the end, I suppose.

Yep, whenever someone immediately freaks out around here because of what you said, you know you are on to something, you would think that if they just kept quiet that speculators won't get the hint.

Because there is always a chance of an idiot releasing a massive spoiler if the speculation continues.

....and freaking out is supposed to avoid that? Depending on the situation, freaking out does exactly the same damage as just saying what happens.

I also think that they should form a temp cease fire and kill the loli first.

They should prob also go after Lancer's master for being a wuss!

Once again, we were more in the comedy branch. But the first half was entertaining enough, although I hope that won't become the standard for future episodes (but I think not).
The second half instead was actually interesting, both for Rin's hunting to Emiya, both for the intelligent subtle Rider's introduction.
And for that marvellous scene at the school's starway

I'm divided between 7 and 8 for this episode. I'll decide later

Macs have trouble playing the video of files encoded in WMV9. All the raws so far are encoded in WMV9. I hate you guys.

I regretted having watched the raw this time around. Oh well, good to see Rin taking action, Archer must've talked some sense into her (or not because I don't know what they're saying) Hmmm, first a girl with a crystal ball and now one with chain. Is there something about Rin/Shirou that's so interesting that they have to spy on them?

Maybe they were hoping for some free softcore porn or something

It looks like Rin's little chase with Shirou has more to do with the fact that Shirou doesnt seem to be taking the war seriously. She was annoyed when she couldnt find Saber around Shirou... course mentioning her skirt during the stairwell part added fuel to the fire..

Ok, I'm going to say it, the blatant avoidance of ecchiness is starting to get annoying. I'm not one to enjoy over the top "panty shots in every scene" anime, but if they are going to dedicate an episode almost entirely to comedy and fan service(even during the serious parts), FFS don't make Rin start holding her skirt down while she's jumping down the stairs trying to kill someone.

I liked the episode, but the character designs were way off. It feels like Shuffle all over again. Things are going smoothly and then during random episodes they bring in some artists who can't follow the original animation at all. Some of the humor wasn't all that funny either imo. And like I said, I'm pissed caused Rin manages to maintain her modesty while in the middle of a battle.
