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

Welcome back! Hope you had a good couple of days! Well no time for chit chat! Lets hop in! I’ve gone over the last two episodes so I’m clearer on some of the details.

Okay, so the guy in reds name is Tokiomi, I believe he was working together with Kirei (I’m hoping I’m getting these name right) in secret so I’m not sure why he let his servant attack the assassin servant? Mmmm, not sure if I like this servant or not. Don’t get me wrong he looks epic but seems rather prideful. Too prideful for my liking with a stick stuck up your ass attitude. Screen Shot 2018-04-27 at 18.25.11.png

Oooh so the heroic spirits can come from legends and not just historic real figures, nice! I was wondering how they all fit in. I also realised while going over the episodes that Saber was the type of servant, not a name, so sorry about that. So there are different categories of heroes and different people within those categories they can choose from depending on what relic they get for the summoning, I think. Also I like that this servant is giving Waver (Yay I remembered his name) a lesson. If they’re both going to survive this they both need to listen to each other more. Also wow the assassin is actually dead, I thought he might be but I didn’t think we’d lose a servant so soon.

Oh my god, please do blow up the whole house, I don’t know why I find this so funny, maybe because he got himself into this mess, lol. 

Screen Shot 2018-04-27 at 18.40.25.pngOh wow this was all planned! I had no idea! Though I do not understand at all why and what the hell their plan is. Without a servant how can he even help Tokiome? I don’t get it but I can’t wait to find out. 

Screen Shot 2018-04-27 at 18.44.30.pngUm who the hell is that? Don’t tell me… Screen Shot 2018-04-27 at 18.46.44.pngThere are more?! Wait I assumed that you could only get one servant from one category  unless what I talked about from the beginning was completely wrong which I wouldn’t put it past me. Though if you can summon more assassins then why on earth don’t the other masters summon more servants of Saber, Archer, etc? Soo confused. 

Screen Shot 2018-04-27 at 18.51.51.pngSo does that mean they are all one spirit? Was assassin part of that spirit as well. Are all these one servant that can split into many? Well its just guesses. Thats all I am, lol.

Death glare

Screen Shot 2018-04-27 at 19.00.59.pngSaber looks so bored, haha. Usually when characters come from a different era its them thats gazing at everything like that, I quite like this twist lol. So she can ride anything huh, maybe she could possibly ride that chariot that the spirit with Waver has? Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 12.06.48.png

Iri has never been out before? What? How? Why? And why hasn’t the guy she in love with done something about this? Surely he could have shown her around a bit? No wonder she is excited! Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 15.07.17.png

Seriously though, why couldn’t he have, I don’t know, actually got you out of that castle and shown you the world?

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 15.11.27.pngAnd who would you be? Well this dark mysterious atmosphere is foreboding, makes me feel like this is some sort of thriller spy movie, especially because they are both dressed in black. I’m hoping they are dressed in black to blend into the night more, if not, would it hurt both of you to have a splash of colour? Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 15.14.58.pngUm isn’t that just using her as bait? Why do you need to pretend? Whats the point of hiding? You’ll be revealed soon another anyway because two of the masters already know you are a master. Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 15.19.26.png

I think I can read his mind, it goes something like “Uh oh, him again” and……

Have I not said that it is awesome that this is based in the modern day and mages are using guns? Well its awwwesoome. 

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 23.07.12.pngUh what now?! I’m half expecting him to push her away but he looks calm and not shocked. Excuse me mister, I think you already have a wife/girlfriend can’t remember if they are married or not. I didn’t think he was the type of character to cheat and he has a daughter, what the hell? Well you’ve just gone down on my who could be my favourite character list and been added to my shit list. Mind you he doesn’t seem into it so maybe this is a ploy to get her to help him or something? I can only hope… 

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 23.12.50.png

I feel so sad now, she has no idea that she’s being cheated on and so happy. I almost feel betrayed myself that I thought he was a good guy, whats wrong with me? I almost want Saber to kick his ass but his her master so that won’t work out. Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 20.51.53.png

Sod his pain! If he is in love with you, which I doubt now because of the other women, then shouldn’t he have shown you the world? Not let you waste your life away without going outside. Mmmm you know what, thinking about shipping, you and Saber would make a nice couple. Walking the beach together and looking at the ocean. Replace him with Saber, Iri, I know you can do it! Okay may be slightly carried away but I ship you two. Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 20.58.47.png

Oooh. Music has picked up, I can’t wait! Also more scenes with Iri and Saber incoming! I hope we get a lot of scenes with them in the future.

All you need now is popcorn to watch the show! Okay to be honest I do not blame Waver at all and relate to him a lot here, yeah I may have a slight fear of heights (cough) big fear of heights (cough). I most probably would have used the command spell to get him to take me down already, so I give him props for sticking it out and for even following him up there in the first place. 

Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 21.06.08.pngSo am I, let the fight begin! Whoop!

Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 21.07.33.pngOh wow and who the hell are you? I seriously want to know what history or legend you came from. You may die in this fight because there is no way Saber is going to lose because we’ve spent so much time with her. However you do look, I have to say, really freaking cool!

Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 21.11.25.pngWait, no, no! Its going to end here isn’t it! You’re just getting to the good part, please don’t end- 

Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 21.12.28.png

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.  Dam yooouuuuu! 

Last Sentence Take Away:

Kiritsugu (Had to look his name up, didn’t see any spoilers though so don’t worry) I seriously hope you know what you are doing and kissing that other women was just a ploy of some kind. If its not I hope Saber or Iri somehow kicks your ass.
