Woah... at the spoilers regarding what's inside Gate of Babylon and the identity of fifth-war servants. 0.o

Also, from what I've browsed (I quickly read all pages) I don't think the reason why Berserker was hit by the chariot was properly explained (at least, not to my satisfaction).

At that moment, Berserker's attention was fixated solely on Saber to the point that he was either unaware or purposefully chose to ignore all outside stimuli. Lancer does not have such an irrational fixation (he's not Berserk'd, after all ), so you can see him avoiding the attack by jumping away just before Rider runs them over.

Furthermore, Rider's chariot isn't just simply some rickety old chariot drawn by two old cows. It's described by the novel (don't worry, this isn't a spoiler. It's described (right after Rider's first summoning of the bulls) as producing electricity of a magnitude of prana such as would normally be produced when a servant exerts all his or her effort into a decisive attack using a noble phantasm. I'm not sure whether that statement should be interpreted literally or if it is just simply an observation by a fly-on-the-wall (that may or may not be wrong). Howeer, clearly a kidsmobile it ain't. : )

The fact that Berserker was still able to move in such a way at the very last second so as to avoid fatal damage speaks volumes about his skill.

This is a Mad Enhanced servant we are talking about.... Something is clearly not right. Someone is clearly a badass.

Finally started watching this series (didn't really like Fate Stay/Night) and caught up in single sitting. I had high expectations coming into this from all the hype, and suffice to say they were exceeded.

I actually like there's no 'main' character as of now. It seems to be more of a Game of Thrones setup where you have multiple protagonists each with their own driving forces, and the story plays out accordingly in the chaos of their interactions.

Anyways, one thing I'm wondering about is that Kariya had to use those worms to be able to summon his servant, and even then, he had to use Mad Enhancement in order to match up to the other masters. Yet Waver, who doesn't seem particularly strong, and definitely can't compare to the other older masters, was able to summon Iskandar, arguably one of the stronger servants in the current war. Was it purely because of the relic that he stole?

You're the fourth person I've seen compare F/Z to Game of Thrones now... Must say it's a good way to sell it to less experienced anime fans.

waver is your average immature magus from a relatively young family, he's weak and his magecraft is pretty weak as well, but he still IS a magus with properly working circuits

Kariya on the other hand never trained as a magus, and as a result, his circuits now suck. Furthermore, it's not simply a matter of his circuits suck, but he had to learn magecraft from zero in one year, hence why the "need" for the worms.

though, considering that there was such a lack of master candidates that the grail had to select Ryuunoske, Kariya would've probably been chosen regardless of training, so long as Zolgen gave him a relic to summon a servant, at least...but Zolgen is a sadistic monster, and he really never thought Kariya could actually win....

anyways, the point of the training wasn't so that kariya could summon a servant, it was so that he could summon a servant AND be a decent master. Of course though, one year of training wasn't enough, hence why Zolgen told him to summon a berserker(that, plus the fact Zolgen probably really thought it would've been hilarious to have kariya summon berserker...)

It is not that rare to find a light novel with multiple protagonists, especially for some certain author. Narita Ryogo's work are all with the style, <Baccano!>, <Durarara!!!> and also the approved fanfiction <Fate/Strange Fake>.

I'm sad they censored almost the entire scene with the caster pair.

Dang, Irisviel is a beast at the wheel.

Loved the whole reaction by Saber during the driving scene.

Makiri Zolgen is Matou Zouken's real name(Makiri being his first name, Zolgen the family name IIRC). He's eastern european...
