Yes I saw Excaliber. Yes I saw her noble phantasm. Yes it was cool. But if you really think that's the best deal that's out there, you haven't come face to face to a reality marble yet... I can name 2-3 noble phantasms that are at least on par with hers as well. All in the Fate world. Impressive yes, but strongest no.

Wow.. Nice attack from Excalibur. I don't mind if it is the end of Rider sorry but that outfit, ugly glasses, and her personality does not bring sexiness to my mind. Saber is way more sexier to me with her whole attitude and persona. Hmm.. but what about Ilya seems she's taken an interest in Shirou and once again approaches him to talk with him. And now Sakura since I haven't played much of the game yet (havent had much time but playing it some with AGTH) surprised me with that one screenshot that she knows much much more about what's going on.

I actually do mind because if she was killed, which seems to be the case then they are probably not going to tell you who she really is. (I personally knows but not everyone has played/finished the game). The # of eps i believe is 24 found here http://www.animenfo.com/animetitle,1...tay_night.html

Why do you feel the need to refute the anime watchers? Leave them be and stop trying to ruin their enjoyment. So what if they say its the strongest, there is nothing in the anime atm to prove it right or wrong, stop correcting 'mistakes' or 'guesses' with game knowledge. It's like watching first three episodes of a fifty episode series and going, 'Wow HeroB is pretty cool!', and than someone like you who finished it will go, 'yeah, but too bad HeroB will get his ass kick later'.

This isn't the first time you done this crap, if you feel the need to impose your 'superiority' onto other people, back it with anime infomation, not backhanding game spoilers without explicitly spoiling.

Noooo!! This can't be happening T_T...

Good episode ^^, thought somehow I think they're either going to start Saruka's ark, or they're going to to a "the past of Saruka" episode. Somehow I just feel so gipped if I don't get a defined connection for the anime series

any idea on why Rin goes to Sakura's house? Do Rin suspect that Sakura is somehow related to Rider perhaps?

That was rather surprising with Saber noble phantasm, a range attack. I thought she would like jump and charge at Rider or something. I thought the beginning was a bit boring, i know it helps with the story and stuff but i didn't find it too intriguing, but it started to get better when the fight was about to start.

As for Rider coming back, maybe. After reading some posts depending where the story goes she can - HF - and also like some one mentioned there are too much things to reveal for a 24ep series, the writers has to take things out from the original game and see what fits with the anime. I wouldn't mind a 2nd season or ova or whatever of fsn for the other storyline, only if season 1 ends well with a some sort of opening, let say if the first season ends the holy grail war then i don't want a sequel , unless its ataraxia with pure comedy, like fumoffu, YAY!

If you were paying ANY amount of attention to what I was replying to, you might not have felt the need to go so far in your post as you did. But since you miss-quoted what happened, I don't feel the need to defend myself.

Spoiler for Episode 12:
I agree with whoever implied it first: Saber's noble phantasm is imba because it's ranged. Tell me I'm not the only one who got kamehame-flashbacks when it appeared.

First fight that's lacked atmosphere as well... which is bad, since that's what F/SN has been doing best til now: the atmosphere in the fights. I guess a lot of what killed it were the things that are just so cliched in shounen action series fight scenes: yelling out attacks, charging up attacks, etc, etc.

Overall verdict on this episode: this has really killed a lot of the potential I was hoping from this series from the beginning with some bad execution and poor choice of story direction... particularly for some of the characters. I'm hoping the rest of the series delivers to (in a sense) redeem itself after this ep.

Great Episode.
Saber used her ban-kai, and Shinji pulled the ol' "ignore-the-man-behind-the-curtain".
Story for this episode didn't seem to go anywhere until halfway through. First half sorta showed a little sexual tension between master and servant, but it felt off in terms of the pace of the series. The battle with rider made up for it, since Saber wasn't completely schooled.
Oh, did it bother anyone that they used the fighting lights a la GUNDAM?

WOW!! Except for the 1/2 half... where they even had a scene of "resting".... it was excellent. End scene was great... the little girl should come in and stomp shinji while saber is down :P

wtf was up with the park scene? While I appreciate that they are trying to integrate some humor into the series, it feels like they are cheapening the relationship between Shirou and Saber. It seems like they keep taking a serious step forward, but then two steps backward with these stupid jokes that play off of the "boy meets extremely cute but romantically ignorant girl" cliches.

I have to agree with you Prodigious. Just didn't feel right to me. I was hoping for better.

yea, i was like ftw? Yelling out the name of the attack was pretty lame to implement in at the end.

As for the preview, heh Illya looked like she was spreading Shirou's legs lol, shes pretty aggressive for a girl her age
