Kiritsugu's development got the shaft in Part I, which has been a consistent complaint among novel readers. As for the BD, they showed one scene with Ilya on the boxset, and left his opinion of Iri largely blank.

Developing irrelevant characters in a flashback =/= good pacing.
Shirley and Noritaka are far from irrelavant, as their deaths are what caused him to become the cynical, broken man he became, in comparison to the happy little boy, crushing on his childhood friend.
To consume all good forms of Japanimation,
To stream new productions from NicoNico's Station,
To judge the legitimacy between Subs and Dubs,
To await an anime for the VN Muv-Luv,
Downloading from Hulu at the speed of light,
To remain within the bounds of copyrights!
