Anime: Informal Review/Commentary: Fate/Zero Season One, Episode One

New format for anime. Edited/Added (Easier to Navigate)

Welcome to the new anime series that I will be watching, this will be more of a commentary of sorts and anything else I want to add. I will screen shot certain scenes as I watch the anime and put my thoughts below. These should be short but I will make them longer depending on how much commentary I want to write. Hope you enjoy!

What now? What is going on? So her name is Iri? I can not spell the guys name at all. I’m guessing that the baby will be our main character? Secretive father, whats knew? Though I think it be best if you run away Iri, he is handing you death flags right there. I will be surprised if you survive the series to be honest. I have to say I do like her eyes, I’m not sure why. Maybe because red eyes usually are for the bad guys but they somehow make hers look really caring and pretty.

I am a little unsettled at how white everything looks, I don’t know, I guess I don’t like those type of surroundings and it makes everything feel fake, to perfect, to shiny. Despite the blizzard I can really imagine this castle being surrounded by darkness but maybe thats just me. The scene before that confused to to no end so I can’t wait to know more, like what battle? Are they like royalty? I assume they both are incredibly rich and/or important to be living in somewhere like that. I do like that they both seem good hearted and I wanted to give the guy a hug when he basically said he doesn’t deserve to hold his daughter, of course you do random stranger- who- I-have- no- clue- about- the- past- and-its- most- probably- something- horrific- by- the- way- he- is- talking- but- I-don’t- care, hug your daughter man! YES, thank you.

The guy who is pouring the cup, I am calling it now that his a bad guy, mainly because of this imagery. You can not tell me that this wine does not look at all like blood. I would not be surprised if he turned out to be some kind of vampire and the way he is talking is making me uncomfortable. Oh that means that symbol on the fathers hand earler means something and not just some cool character design, symbolism type thing? Cool!

Are they seriously circling him like sharks? Leave him alone! Have they read the how to be a bad guy mantel 101? Though this is getting interesting. So I gather that they are going to team up in secret and kill the other “masters” whatever that means. They are doing to to stop the other masters from reaching the Holy Grail which can grant them wishes? Yeah this is probably completely wrong but this is what I am getting at the moment.

Crest worms? What the? I’m guessing that its nothing good. Anything that is called Crest Worms can’t be good. So he is offering himself to fight instead of doing whatever they are doing to that women, I’m not sure what the relationship between them yet is. I assume it’ll be giving him problems in the future once his somehow gained power from them.

This evil guy is his dad? Bloody hell. So these are the crest worms? What the hell? They are so creepy. I have no idea how those worms work, how does them “breeding” make you magically stronger? So strange. I assumed that he’d be injected with some kind of worms so they’d be inside him or something like that, not that he’d have to lie in them, they remind me of cockroaches, ugh. Well his reason to find the Holy Grail seems definitely better than the other guys but doesn’t he have to be like chosen first and have one of those odd markings on his hand? I’m confused.

Another main character I guess? Or supporting character. We either have a lot of main characters or our actual protagonist hasn’t shown themselves yet. Oooh interesting so this anime probably will have a lot of class issues going on due to blood line and the way magic develops. I wonder which ones right, I hope the character that wrote the essay is right but then why would the bloodline generation thing be a problem if anyone could get really powerful with the right training? That package or/and book looks important, please read it or/and open it!Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 19.16.53.png

You’re getting yourself into a lot of trouble kid, I hope you really are very talented or you may die very soon. I have a feeling that trying to become one of the chosen ones is going to be lot harder than you think. All the servants look so awesome, I wonder which one he will get?Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 20.02.43.png

Ooh, so that is the assassin servant? Nice! This even more confirms that you are someone I don’t want getting the Holy Grail, mmmm, I wonder if he’ll kill one of the supporting characters that I’ll get to know or main character that is. Anyway I hope you lose and get yourself killed. Is it me or do so far most of the guys in this anime names begin with K? Whats up with that? Those drawings in the room also look fascinating, they look a bit like wings. Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 20.13.57.png

I remembered his name! Yes! This guys name is Kirei, for the life of me I will not be able to remember his other name and the only other person I remember their name so far is the women Iri. Anyway I really love this back and forth, what a way to do exposition! Love it! I seriously can’t wait to find out who the other masters are. I love how they are both so confused by each other but seem similar at the same time. Both assuming the worst about each other I see. Despite all the assassinations I am still rooting for the guy with Iri. I wonder how powerful Iri is and if she’ll have more spot light at some point or is she just the “love interest”? Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 20.24.30.png

Bloody hell! I didn’t realise that was him at first, I thought we were being introduced to a new master. Well looks like he has been chosen but I wish I knew how it happens. Well I was definitely right about thinking those worms wouldn’t be good for him. He was in there for a whole year? What?! I had no idea they were going to go inside him like that! So creepy. And also what a crappy father. You’ve got extra magic from this right? Please get revenge on your father at some point, he deserves it! Also please don’t die…

It’ll be quite funny if he doesn’t end up with King Arthur like he is expecting. Yay I know that his a good guy despite the assassination details. I really love the look of this weapon also. The fact they all have different reasons to why they want to do this and the way this anime is giving the characters a lot of time to shine is great. Why did I not watch this anime sooner? Also the King Arthur servant surprised me, does that mean a lot of this or some will be based a little on the King Arthur myths like Seven Deadly Sins? Cool. 

Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 20.57.18.pngSee, Rin! Isn’t that a easy name to remember? Yes! I wonder if she’ll be a main character in the future? I though she was his daughter at first, ha. I hope she is in the story more! I like her! Did not expect that creepy guy to be her father though. She is so cute and I love her attitude. The light shining behind them also makes it so maybe they could be Kirei’s reason for staying alive, protecting her husband and his daughter. Or who knows, he might fail and the girl could grow up and try and get revenge on Kirei for failing to protect her father.

This is getting epic, so far my two favourite masters are the guy with silver hair because of the worms, I think he deserves the Grail because he is basically sacrificing himself to save that girl and I assume a women that I heard about in the beginning. Though I also want the guy above to get it because I think he has some great ideas about what to do with the wish and could do the world a lot of good, especially as his ideals are probably what helped her fall in love with him despite what his done, so they must be good and powerful. Though I am very worried about what the power “madness” means. What is the silver hair dude doing? Also the music is getting epic so I can’t wait. 

Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 23.23.05.pngI love this! Who is it? Is this Arthur and it turns out she is a women? Or is she someone completely different? I can’t wait to find out! This is so interesting! I seriously want to find out who got what Servants, though I was surprised that the guy with Kerei did the summoning, I thought he already had a servant? The assassin? Mmmm, I might be getting confused but I can’t wait to learn and watch more!

Last sentence take away: 

Iri’s eyes, they are so kind, soft and pretty.
