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

So after this episode I’m taking a break for a week or two. If I’m not back on the 26th, I’ll be back on the 2nd. Anyway, lets do this!

Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.24.23.pngOh, we’re getting some flashbacks of Rider’s past, nice!Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.25.12.pngWhats up with your attitude Waver? Though its interesting that he’s getting memories from Rider? I actually hope we get this from all the masters, I’d love to see their reactions.Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.27.05.pngSOMEONE JUST KILL HIM! Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.27.39.pngOh god, I didn’t realise that you could get even more insane. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.28.10.pngI don’t disagree with you there and I think I can see why you think that (I’ve read up on a little about his past) but I sooo don’t need that close up!Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.28.38.pngThat’s a different way to look at it I guess. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.29.01.pngWell technically if God controls everything wouldn’t their actions be because of God and Gods finally decided to punish you?Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.29.23.pngA religious serial killer, who knew?Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.29.51.pngOkaaay…….Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.30.55.pngAh, okay I think I understand what you’re saying and I hate it.Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.31.26.pngI actually thought this might divide them and Caster would do something horrible but nothing he didn’t deserve to Ryuunosuke (Yeah, I am so not going to be able to remember let alone spell that)Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.32.10.pngOh god, this isn’t going anywhere good. You’re master should have just agreed with you and shut his mouth. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.32.47.pngI think the only thing I can say is…. Oh, no….Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.33.32.pngI didn’t actually need to look Rider up and guessed he was Alexander the great a while ago thankfully but Waver, you do know you can just ask him right?Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.33.56.pngOh, wow, okay. Thats interesting! And surprisingly sweet. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.34.28.pngI wonder how he’ll react to Waver reading up about him, ha. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.35.09.pngI have probably already said this but I love them. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.35.47.pngBusted Waver! Haha! Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.36.27.pngIs that seriously what you wanted to know Waver? What? Thats your question? This pair never fail to make me smile. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.37.28.pngSome wise words there Rider. I can agree with that 🙂 Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.38.11.pngThis would be a perfect time for Sniper guy to shoot him… just saying. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.40.05.pngWhats up with you Waver? Rider is treating you like a friend here, its called teasing and banter. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.40.56.pngI think you haven’t been paying attention to how Rider views you and how its changed Waver. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.42.36.pngCouldn’t agree more! Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.43.46.pngTake him to a beach Waver! Now!Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.44.15.pngYESS!Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.45.31.pngWell, this is probably where shit hits the fan, isn’t it?Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 17.45.51.pngNot good!Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 18.16.56.pngVery not good! Though hopefully this means its Casters last stand.Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 18.17.57.pngSounds good!Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 18.18.46.pngWell better kill it fast then and Caster as well! I am incredibly happy that Caster is finally going to be killed, yeah I highly doubt he will live through this though I hope he doesn’t take down any other masters or servants with him. Though I at least know Iri is safe because based on how she is loosing strength, thats likely going to be a part of her downfall, not this fight.Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 18.19.09I figured that, hopefully they can somehow get at him then. Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 18.19.33Then make sure you freaking kill him and he stays dead.Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 18.20.21Who is that? (Waits for a few seconds to see who spoke) Lancer, Whoop! So glad to see you, now just don’t die!Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 18.20.35He probably will, I want to see them fight at some point, just not to the point of killing each other.Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 18.21.22HELL YES AND PLEASE DON’T- 

Screen Shot 2018-05-21 at 18.11.35-DAM IT!

Rider and Waver’s friendship is amazing.

Hope you had a good day, lets get down to business!

Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 21.47.46.pngDoes this mean they are thinking of sending Shiny (Yep, that is now my nick name for him) to try and kill Rider? No! Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 21.50.19.pngWell let the games begin I guess?Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 21.52.35.pngWhat workshop? Surely you don’t mean to hide Iri and Saber away? Especially Saber. She can help!Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 21.54.35.pngI have to say, even though I’m verging on disliking you, mainly for cheating on Iri and the way you are treating Saber however I do really enjoy your analyse of everyone. Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 21.56.37.pngWhy can’t someone just freaking kill him already!

Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 21.58.51.pngI do wonder when their ultimate showdown will begin? It has to happen at some point. Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.00.47.pngOh dear… Someone tell Shiny already that he has no chance or this could end badly for everyone. Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.02.59.png

Oh, so the servant doesn’t disappear when their master is defeated, good to know. Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.05.30.pngI’m not sure if I like that smile…Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.07.58.pngOr maybe he was being a bit of a dick and decided to leave you two there instead, just a guess. Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.10.29.pngHuh? Okay maybe they do have something special to do. Maybe… Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.12.37.pngWhat is going on with you? Wait…is this what he meant when he said she would die in the beginning of this season?!Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.15.27.pngBloody Hell. Also don’t die IRI! Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.16.56.pngAh, you just lied straight to her face didn’t you? I have a feeling that isn’t what that circle is for and it may be bad for your health Iri. Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.19.14.pngOoh, I think I understand where this is going. Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.21.11.pngI think his got you there Kirei. Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.23.34.pngI have to say I do like their interactions, its a interesting dynamic between them and I hope we get more of it in the future. Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.27.14.pngWait, what? Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.29.04.pngPlease enlighten us Shiny, you seem to know whats going on. I want to know which servant its for as well? Can a servant have two masters now? It seems so I guess?

Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.31.04.pngThis is getting even more interesting! Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.32.22.pngI do really love this scheming or mainly Shiny being pretty manipulative I think his suggesting that Kirei steals him. Mind you I don’t have much of a problem with that as I don’t care that much for Shiny’s current master.

Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 22.35.49.png Well I bet shit is going to hit the fan next episode or incredibly soon and I can’t wait.

 

Last Sentence Take Away:

What the heck is up with Shiny’s eyes?

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

No time to talk! Lets go!

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.52.53.png

I didn’t expect him to go in for the attack? Maybe he’s just here to talk? He seems like a guy that wouldn’t go back against his word about attacking Lancer or Saber without them fighting and one of them winning.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 11.54.38.pngI knew it! Haha, there is no way he wants to fight while wearing that. I love you Rider, please don’t die. I don’t think you both are the pair that should win the Holy Grail but I don’t want you both to die either. So please stay somehow… These two are hilarious. Maybe they’ve come to tell Saber about Caster?

Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 11.58.25.png

I can’t stop smiling.

Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 12.00.01.pngI like where this discussion is going! I love watching the other servants interact with each other!. Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 12.02.03.png

What the hell?! I know who that is! What are you doing here? Well its funny to think that his just been spying on them this entire time. Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 12.03.49.png

Thank you Saber!

Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 12.03.49.png I am incredibly shocked he agreed to that. Though I suppose he seems to find watching other people or finding out about other people “entertaining” so maybe thats why he came? Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 12.07.31.pngHaha! That disappointed expression, aw Rider! I am a little worried but at the same time I’m finding this discussion pretty funny!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.20.22.pngDon’t tell me he is going to pull out some wine, ha!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.21.40.pngHe did! Ha! Well have to say despite the attitude you may have won a spot out of my shit list Archer. Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.23.26.png

Iri’s expression! Ha! I know, I’m as shocked as you!

Sniper guy- “What did you do today Iri?”

Iri- “Um…” Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.26.09.png

Never thought Archer would be so smug about getting the best wine, I honestly think if he was challenged by Rider as to who could cook the best meal, he literally would just pull a buffet from those portals, huh, I wonder if he could actually do that? I assume he could as he keeps wine in there after all…

Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.26.43.pngBet he’s started to earn your respect Archer, ha.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.28.00.pngSame Saber but at the same time it might make sense if we know who he is.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.28.23.pngThen tell meeeeeeeeeeeeee! Though I also like your nick name for his as well, I  think I’ll call him Shiny from now on.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.28.46.pngI like how Shiny’s just completely ignoring the nick name Riders given him, I would have thought he’d be insulted by it, haha. Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.29.19.pngShiny, did you forget they’re not your subjects you know.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.30.08.png

It was like world conquest wasn’t it? Saber isn’t going to like that.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.30.21.pngOr not? Why are you blushing? Where you lying to Waver when you said you wanted to conquer the world?Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.30.46.pngThats what I thought as well!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.30.58.pngWouldn’t it be best if you stay away from all the heroes that could possibly kill you Waver? Mainly Shiny….Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.32.21.pngDidn’t expect that kind of wish from you Rider.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.33.21.pngUm just one thing Saber? Unless this anime has a different world history I’m pretty sure Britain is still alive and kicking? Didn’t Waver come from England? We don’t need being saved because, you know, we’re still here. I say we because I’m a brit, so hi to people reading this.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.33.34.pngSaber might not take to Kindly to you laughing at her wish like that Shiny.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.34.06.pngBecause we’re not dead Saber! Come over to Britain and read all the myth around you and folk lore, I’m sure you’d be proud that you’re not forgotten and everyone who knows about or heard about the legend of King Arthur  still believes you to be a hero. The only thing I can think is she is actually talking about Camelot but why call it Britain? I haven’t looked up on my Arthur myths but Camelot and Britain I’m quite sure are two separate things. Britain is the land and we’re still here, hello! Camelot was your kingdom, thats what fell, not Britain?Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.34.44.pngI seriously am interested in hearing what Rider and Shiny have got to say about this matter. Tell me your opinions!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.35.15.png

Well I don’t quite agree with that statement Rider.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.35.26.pngIndeed.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.36.27.pngDidn’t expect Rider to have that view point either Saber!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.36.48.pngAh, that makes more sense and yeah I can see where you’re coming from now rider, that makes sense.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.37.30.pngI do believe that but there is only so many sacrifices you can make.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.37.41.pngI also believe in this point of view, I think you need to have a mixture of both to be a good king. So they are both wrong and right at the same time.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.38.23.pngI wouldn’t go that far…Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.38.54.pngBut true.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.39.10.pngAnd true again. Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.39.22I defiantly agree with this point, they all seemed to be quite extreme in their different ways. Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.39.34But you also need to inspire devotion and loyalty as well Rider.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.40.47Poor Saber! It looks like she is having a mini break down here!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.41.17Even more so, bloody hell this must be so hard for her to here, I do wonder how she died in Fate/Zero, in the legends he dies by Mordred’s hand. Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.41.40Can I give her a hug? Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 17.30.08.png

Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.42.01Oh, wow! Poor Saber but amazing animation there!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.43.20EXACTLY?!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.43.43Oh, so they are one person after all? Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.45.16Well on this point I defiantly agree with Rider, a king shouldn’t be alone.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.45.56Now this is cool!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.46.54This isn’t cool, this is epic!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.47.13Rider, you are officially one of my favourite characters.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.48.48The music fits so perfectly with this, I love Rider’s Noble Phantasm, like how can the other servants ever be able to defeat a army?Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.49.18YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.49.46Nope it defiantly wasn’t, not for me anyway! Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.50.19Ouch! No! Don’t say that! I’m sure you and Saber can still be friends!Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.50.35Saber and Rider’s fall out, like hurts me…in my soul. Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.51.11I have no idea what to say to that though don’t think I didn’t notice your lack of conversation in this one. I want to hear your actual opinion on how Saber views being a king and your opinion on how a king should act. I think its similar to Rider because of the way you laughed at Saber but thats all I am getting. No dude, seriously Shiny, can I have an actual opinion other than “I feel attracted to the agonised heavy burden  expression on your face”Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.51.35Ugh, did he say affection? Ummm…..Saber, you have another admirer, well done! To be honest Shiny, despite your attitude I prefer you over killing kids for fun Caster any day. So you do you …understand Saber’s views or/and are you just now attracted to her because she is “entertaining” with the way she views kingship? Let me see into your mind dude.Screen Shot 2018-05-14 at 13.53.29That look makes my heart ache.

Last Sentence Take Away: 

Poor Saber! And Rider is EPIC.

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

Lets begin!

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 18.52.13.png

Starting with this? Now this feels a little ominous. Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 18.54.32.png

What are you doing Rin?

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 19.00.31.pngHe doesn’t look so happy, thats your dad right?

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 21.32.22.pngOh, okay maybe he is happy, well at least he’s interested in teaching her but I guess that be the case as she is probably the next in line. I did see there was other series like this, maybe it’ll be about their kids? But to be honest I like you Rin though all the other characters and the situation they are in at the moment are much more interesting than this. I hope we’re not staying all episode with her. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 17.29.36.png

Huh, like cheat ice sculpting I suppose. Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 17.34.05.pngWhat the hell? Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 18.23.20.pngNow that is going to be useful! Can I have one?

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 18.24.52.pngYou mean if you survive…. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 18.26.44.pngOh no and that scene and that music gives me the creeps… Well who do I know thats creepy and liked kidnapping people? Don’t tell me Caster will kidnap Rin?! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 18.29.57.pngWhat on earth makes you think you can save them by yourself? Get your father, I don’t care how many times you have to call him, just do it idiot! Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 18.34.38.png

Is this a trap…? He must have heard her right? You’re quite loud Rin.Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 18.36.21.pngOh, well I guess he is a little deaf then. Oh no… I do wonder what that bracelet is about, does he have good knowledge of magic after all then? 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 18.39.00.pngWhack him on the head with it! It would be funny if she somehow or even accidentally kills him, I think that will stop Caster, sorry to all the other masters, a child got there before you! Ha! Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 18.42.51.pngAt least her using her magic to much comes in handy! Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 20.45.38.pngOh, so thats not your own magic but Casters, well I take that back. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 20.47.01.pngAll I have to say is that these kids are freaking lucky! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 20.48.48.pngDam it Caster! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.24.42.pngIs that white heard dude protecting her? Or someone else?Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.26.10.png

Ah ha! So it was you! I also think your the one who needs the most command spells so I hope you’re the one to defeat Caster mainly for that reason, though with what Waver saw last episode I wouldn’t mind them being the ones to kill Caster to get revenge for those dead kids and stop it from continuing. Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.30.01.pngKariya, I should be able to remember his name, Kariya, Kariya, Kariya. Looking well as ever…

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.33.00.png I love this imagery right there! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.33.57.pngFinally getting a proper explanation of those worm things, thank you! Took you long enough show!Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.35.36.png

This is definitely going to be interesting… Her husband vs her daughter, who is more important to her? Though I’d say her husband by the way she gave up her other daughter in the earlier episodes. It might not be the response you are hoping for Kariya. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.38.34.png

And I bet you fill like a shit person right now… 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.40.04.pngSo you are taking Archer’s advice, good! I do really want to know what you think of Kariya’s motivation… 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.41.35.pngWell never freaking mind then, noooo, ah sorry Rin and her mother but Kirei’s thoughts on Kariya’s motivation are so much more interesting to me! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 21.43.57.pngDid you just say you didn’t do much? You saved those kids! That wasn’t something little! They’d be dead if it were not for you! Well at least she is humble.

Last Sentence Take Away:

To be honest the first half and the middle of this was boring to me but I did really enjoy the ending half of it with Kariya and Kirei.

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

And we are here!

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 19.58.28.pngWhat is going on? I’m feeling a little nervous… 

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 20.00.56.pngMmmm, do I sense a tragic love story starting? Backstory time! Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 10.29.44.pngI knew it! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 10.31.18.png

Ah, I have a bad feeling about this, is this the story about how he died? I do wonder if the heroic spirits all died “young” or once they return they come back in their peak form before they grow old, I’m not sure which however I do have a feeling, mainly from the first scene I saw, that Lancer died young… 

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 10.35.13.pngI thought this was just a transition but he actually saw Lancer’s past? This is getting even more interesting! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 10.36.39.pngAh, so you are alive! I’m glad, I actually liked you. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 10.38.45.pngBloody Hell, I don’t believe it but I think I feel sorry for him! Maybe this will develop his character and humble him, so he can become a decent guy? Who knows? Though this does make me incredibly unsure about how I feel about Sniper guy, wouldn’t it be better to have just shot him in the head with that gun rather than do this to him? I am hoping Sniper guy believes his dead though, if he knew what would happen to him and it wouldn’t kill him than thats, well pretty much…evil.

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 10.46.21.png

I have a feeling you don’t have a choice there bud, she was asking you but she wasn’t actually asking, if you know what I mean? I do wonder why they are married, either though he says he trusts her, by the look on his face whenever she is around, he seems more fearful around her or worried, while she honestly looks like she wouldn’t mind breaking his fingers to get what she wants. Also doesn’t she know about Lancer’s love spot? For them, it wouldn’t be the best idea for her to be his master and I’m not sure if Lancer would accept her that easily. I think I trust Lancer more than I trust this woman anyway, so maybe if Lancer can “control” her by using his love spot, it’ll be okay?

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 10.52.08.pngI was joking about the snapping fingers, bloody hell! I do feel sorry for him at the moment, that noise made me cringe!

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 16.40.55.pngNot really willing now is it? Huh, now I think about it I did want Lancer to get a new Master but the way its happening it making me feel incredibly unsettled.

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 16.44.50.pngHalf of me understands Sniper guys view, the other half of me seriously wants Saber to kick his ass. Saber and Sniper guy seriously need to start working together at some point or they won’t get the Holy Grail. You can’t follow Saber all the time as being to honourable can get you killed but you can’t follow Sniper guy all the time because he won’t have anyone to have his back when he really needs it. True I don’t think Saber would not go to him if she realised he was in danger but what if she was to late? And she was to far away because Sniper guy, the idiot, didn’t want her at his side!

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 16.49.35.pngI am curious to see how this turns out…

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 16.54.40.pngI had a feeling he’d say that. Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.09.25.pngI don’t trust that stutter! Man, I wish he knew what she did to get those command spells! Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.10.57.pngUh…she didn’t swear that she had no other motive lancer! Though still I hope that promise is magic of some kind, or Lancer here is to honourable for his own good. Mmm, talking about honourable, they could be both representing to sides of it. One, where his honour fails him and Sabre’s honour could give her victory.

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.18.50.pngBut… what? Is this the other motive his master was talking about? Or is he regretting handing his loyalty (sort of) over to his ex masters wife, or is he thinking about being less honourable to get the grail and get his ex masters body back to normal? (Sorry, I sort of remember there names but defiantly can’t spell them nor have the patience to go back to look at the sub to spell their names correctly.

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.22.56.pngWhat is going on?

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.23.33.pngI’m with you Waver!

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.26.48.pngWow, well what he lacks in strength he defiantly makes up for it with his mind. Though I’m not sure if they should be the ones to face Caster, wouldn’t being underground mean Rider wouldn’t be able to use his chariot properly and no offence Waver but you don’t look much of a fighter but I have been wrong before, so we shall see? Unless someone else gets their hands on Waver’s things and finds Caster before them. Or follows them and kills Caster before they can. Either way I have a bad feeling about this, it just doesn’t seem like the right two vs two  battle to me? Also the way they are getting along I very much doubt that Waver will need more command spells. Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.34.50.pngAw is he blushing? Haha. Thinking about the command spells though the only person I think will need them is the white haired dude. The guy who controls the “king of heroes” may also need them but unless the servants don’t know the prize is command spells, I don’t see the “King of heroes” wanting his master to have more ways to control him and could even let someone else kill Caster to spite him. Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.39.23.png

Haha, I saw that smile there Waver, finally getting a little more confident? Or a little more agreeable to your servants ways. Ha. Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.41.29.pngI’m eating my words about his chariot not being that effective underground, they taste very nice.

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.43.02.png

He wasn’t kidding! Theres a reason why he called you boy just now, don’t look! A kid shouldn’t see something like this! Well I haven’t seen it yet but I have a feeling my imagination is right. Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.46.02.png

And I was right but I hoped I was wrong.

And he did warn you Waver!

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.48.10.pngI did not expect them to be here! But I guess it makes sense as they are working together with Archer, well there Masters are anyway. They probably followed them.

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.51.42.png

Poor Waver but at least he has Rider to cheer him up. I love them!Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.54.06.pngAre Archers words getting to you? Though I just realised, how stupid of me, we haven’t actually seen Riders Noble Phantasm yet have we? Unless that move with his chariot is his Noble Phantasm? Also do not go after Rider and Waver, okay!? Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 17.57.37.pngObserve not kill, okay!? Okay! Good!

Don’t trust your ex masters wife Lancer!

No words! Lets go!

Screen Shot 2018-05-09 at 23.24.51.pngOh no, don’t do anything reckless now…. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 03.20.29.png

Say no! Seriously don’t listen to her. Iri from what I’ve seen of your character you can’t fight and the other women didn’t stand up much to him last time so you won’t help at all, you can’t help out all, just get out of there, okay? 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 17.51.41.pngMmmmm, what do you mean by that Iri? I’m not sure if I like that line of dialogue. She doesn’t…know that Sniper guy is cheating on her, right? 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 18.05.02.png

I blinked, what happened? Thank god! But at the same time how?! Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 18.28.00.png

It might, because he thinks its his fault that you were able to shoot him. Please don’t let this battle leave Lancer’s Master alive, please take him out! Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 18.30.32.png

What are you doing? Why are you not even waiting to see if he gets up again? There is no way he’d go down that easily, are you an idiot? I also didn’t see any blood… Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 21.03.40.pngIri don’t do anything stupid. Also I have no sympathy for you here, you’re stupidity got you into this situation. Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 21.06.40.png

DAM IT IRI! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 21.49.33.pngOh, did I underestimate you Iri? Is that some kind of magic whip? However despite how cool it looks I’m still uneasy about this. Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 21.54.37.pngOkay, what the hell is that? It looks amazing though! Though I do wonder if this is something she can do because she is a artificial master and if Sniper guy can do this as well, couldn’t Kirei also do something like this as those guys seemed to be quite similar? 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 21.58.30.pngThat is a amazing ability! It reminds me a lot of the main character death parade ability (Can’t remember his name right now) Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 22.00.37.png

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 22.02.31.pngWhat is going on? What is he doing, how is he doing it? Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 22.03.51.pngOh, thats where the uneasy feeling came from! Thank you for letting me know show! Also I get magic and all but you were completely tied up, shouldn’t you be to tightly tied to that tree to even move or bring it down? I’d love to know what kind of magic that was, though I assuming some sort of strength enhancing magic or maybe elemental to bring the tree down. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 22.07.57.pngMind explaining to me why only now you told Lancer this, Saber? That might have been, you know, good information to give him as soon as he said he’d fight by your side! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 22.11.46.pngPlease let this work!Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 22.12.53.pngPlease! (Also epic!) 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 22.13.55.pngYes? Yes? I see blood! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 22.15.10.pngYES! And that is a brilliant but at the same time horrifying shot! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 22.17.23.pngJust kill him already! Don’t let him talk, go in for the kill! Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 06.50.16.pngWell you’re not looking to good. I assume that if you are killed Lancer will go back to where he came from, so try not to kill him when Lancer is doing something important sniper guy.

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 06.53.18.pngOnce Again another stupid decision from a character in this show. You were shot, wouldn’t it be the smartest choice to escape and heal, though hopefully this reckless action will get him killed. Also how on earth was this dude able to become a teacher. He’s sounding pretty insane at the moment. Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 06.57.42.pngLancer seems troubled by something, I wonder if his master has been killed or if he can somehow now feel that his master is in trouble and what the hell?! No! He got away? Dam it! How long do I have to wait until someone kills him! Also please don’t let this be Lancer’s last fight! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 18.33.29.pngDo you have any idea how badass you look Lancer! Half of me loves this because it means you’re still in the game, the other half of me hates this because I seriously hate Lancer’s master. Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 18.39.34.png

Kirei let your hands go of her! I swear if you injure her severely or try and kill her for real, I will put you on my shit list! I had no idea what to think of your character but it will be going to the dislike category or even hate category if you keep going! Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 18.44.00.pngHold on!? I know there was a possibility of her dying or getting severely injured but not yet! Right?

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 18.45.42.pngI don’t care about the sniper woman and for all I know she could be dead but they wouldn’t kill Iri, one of the main character’s this harshly right? If she were really dead I believe it would be a lot more dramatic than this…right? Well either way congrats show for making me incredibly unsure. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 18.48.56.pngHa! Knew she was still alive! Well, okay I didn’t but I that “death” didn’t convince me so yay for being half right I guess? You go Saber, save her you shining knight in armour! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 18.51.30.png

Hold on a second….. Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 18.52.28.pngOh-Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 18.54.31.png-MY GOD. I love you and Saber so much! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 18.56.07.pngScreen Shot 2018-05-11 at 18.58.15.pngCouldn’t have said that any better! Especially Sniper girl despite her stupidity, like what? He could have killed you so many times, does she have a magic clover stuck to her outfit somewhere? Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 19.01.46.png

Aaargh, again I don’t like that line, it makes me believe that Iri might know about the cheating or she could be incredible innocent. I’m hoping for the latter.

Iri and Saber are amazing!

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

 

No introductions! Lets do this!Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 18.50.27.png

Intriguing stuff already. I’m assuming this is the building sniper guy blew up? Does that mean Lancer and his master is still alive? Though I do wonder how. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 18.52.33.png

What? Since when was sticking your hand in a unknown substance of mercury EVER looked like a good idea. I won’t feel any sympathy if anything happens to you! Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 18.56.06.png

I think white haired dude most probably needs these more, to control his berserker. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 19.31.54.png

I had a feeling he was still alive! Shame really but good news is hopefully this means Lancer can come back as well!Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 19.35.30.png

I didn’t realise I loved this pairing so much until now! Pants are his motivation for now, well fine by me! Ha!Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 19.37.06.png

Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 19.39.26.png

Yes! Its a shame because of Saber’s hand but at the same time I’m so relieved he is still alive! I can’t wait to find out how they survived. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 19.43.15.png

And I bet Saber’s hands isn’t shaking because of her ruined tendon. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 19.45.17.png

And I was right, ooooh. Their mind sets are incredibly different, I definitely don’t think its cowardice Saber, more like this is what he is good at and he believes he’ll be able to get it done this way rather than fighting with honour. I can see both sides though even though I don’t like him I’m leaning towards Sniper guy on this one. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 22.10.49.png

Now that sounds like the guy I though he was in the earlier episodes however you may be forgetting one thing that may be ruining this, what-about-the-fact-you-are-cheating-on-her?! I’d feel so much for you if you weren’t cheating! Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 22.16.55.png

YESSS! END HIM PLEASE! THOSE POOR KIDS. PLEASE DEFEAT HIM AND KILL HIM SABER! Or really ANYONE just KILL HIM. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 22.22.03.png

Ugh, someone just stop his useless blabbering and kill him already, I wonder who the newcomer is? At the moment I honestly don’t care who kills Caster, as long as someone does it soon! Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 22.23.59.png

I know you’re not dying any time soon so I’m not to worried but I do wonder how you’ll get out of this. And this music thats playing right now is epic! Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 22.25.52.png

YES! Though I have a bad feeling about this team up. It reminds me of how Lancer was forced to fight with Berserker. Hopefully Sniper guy won’t mirror that and force Saber to fight Lancer with Caster, to heal her wrist, so she can defeat Caster. However I am trying to be optimistic here so hopefully I’m wrong. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 22.31.29.pngAh! So thats how he saved himself from the collapsing building. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-09 at 00.10.38.png

I don’t have any words to describe this right now other than I love it! Screen Shot 2018-05-09 at 00.13.19.png

Eeek! That may not be wise, it looks like your putting a lot of strain on your body there. I don’t like at all that your cheating but I admit I care about what happens to Sniper guy a lot more than what will happen to Waver’s teacher. Screen Shot 2018-05-09 at 00.16.59.pngOr has he? By the looks of that smile I doubt he has waisted his chance.

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

Nothing to add other than hope you had a good day! Lets do this!

Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 15.38.28.pngYou DO look like a driving maniac Iri! For gods sake slow down before you crash, I seriously hope this is on a abandoned road or something. Did Snipe guy (Yeah, for the life of me I can’t remember his name) forget to tell Iri you can actually die from “playing” around in a car when you have no experience in that area of road? And possibly breaking laws as well. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 17.30.22.png

Oh no, the figure looks familiar. Is this creepy Caster?

Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 21.47.36.pngYou are so creepy! I think I actually recoiled. Please just kill him already Saber! Good use of the shadows as well, I literally feel like his staring right at me. It gives me goosebumps. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 22.06.30.png

He is mad or there may be some truth to what he says, defiantly interesting. Using the car lights to their advantage for this scene is great as well, it really adds a creepier atmosphere to the scene, a effect I don’t think would have been as good if they’d just used street lights. It also could be symbolising Saber as the light, shining brightly in front of him and his dark shadow representing his evil nature (Hopefully he doesn’t take a U turn anywhere and make me root for him, I quite enjoy knowing what my feelings are towards him. Along the lines of I hope you die soon before you course any problems. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 22.18.30.pngThat means you have to defeat Lancer first before you can fight Caster. Dam it! Maybe theres a way he can remove the curse without you needing to kill him? Fingers crossed? Then again as Waver’s teacher is Lancers Master, I do think it makes more sense for Rider to defeat Lancer, so Waver can flaunt that in his teachers face and possibly gain some confidence over defeating his teacher. Then again he might not be ready yet so Saber might be the best choice to defeat Lancer. Though I hope defeat doesn’t have to mean kill. Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 22.38.11.pngYou know whats strange? How normal he looks. Seriously if I saw him on a normal street I’d have no clue he was serial killer. Its odd to me mainly because I am used to serial killers being portrayed by people like Caster, some who gives of the creep vibe but this dude doesn’t feel sinister at all. I guess its probably because he most likely isn’t a threat due to his lack of knowledge of magic and the Holy Grail War, it’ll be his servant who will be the problem. I doubt he even knows about the command spells. Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 23.00.03.pngMan I hate you so much. I doubt it but I hope theres a way people can swap masters or something like that. Find yourself a new master Lancer. Its a pity you were stuck with this dick. Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 23.09.27.pngNew character introduction, I like you! I have a feeling you may be trouble for the other masters in the future but I like you, anyone who insults this dick is fine by me! Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 23.11.54.png

Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 23.14.12.pngThat is aloud? I didn’t realise you could do something like that. Then wouldn’t it make sense for the others to have secondary Masters as well? Mmmm, the way she is acting and the way he is responding, I bet she has a even stronger mana supply than he does. He seems to respect her or even maybe fear her?Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 23.17.27.pngIs it me or is he literally sweating and she almost looks evil with that expression. I’d love to know their relationship! Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 23.19.39.pngAwe you ruined the fun Lancer! Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 23.21.54.pngI was just thinking that it was odd she apologised so quickly and now I know the answer, I guess that charms quite useful sometimes. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 08.41.53.png Bloody hell! Well at least he got all the citizens out beforehand. Though wouldn’t the falling debris kill some people and lead to the people panicking? I’m also hoping that means Waver’s master is dead, however I’ll want to see a body first! He isn’t dead until we see a body or get a hint of one. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 08.47.54.png Kirei is back I see, I didn’t expect to see him! Ah, so they’ve figured out what Caster and his master is. I wonder how they will react? I don’t think they’d find him a threat however they may want to illuminate them based on the fact he is a serial killer. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 08.52.32.pngI did not recognise him at first, wow. I may not like your personality but you clean up well! Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 08.56.33.pngAnd once again I have no clue what they are talking about, hopefully they explain more and don’t leave me hanging. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 09.00.10.pngIs Archer actually giving Kirei some advice in a way? I’m surprised how calm and almost friendly he is being! Mmmm, well while I am thinking about his character, I do despite not liking him yet (That may change if he can keep this attitude up and show me its not just a one off) agree with what he is saying. Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 09.07.56.pngThis took a unexpected turn, interesting, very interesting! I didn’t expect Archer to help Kirei in a way and I didn’t expect this character development from Kirei this soon. I hope that as he learns other Masters motivations it’ll change him as well. I wonder what he’ll think of Kirei’s “save the world somehow” motivation and the white hair dude’s motivation.

 

Last Sentence Take Away:

Archer being nice?! I hope that means there is more to his character personality wise than being a arrogant prick. If you keep this up you may get of my shit list Archer.

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

Welcome back once again! Waisting no time, lets go!

Screen Shot 2018-05-03 at 23.43.11.pngDramatic and Epic Entrance, well done!

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 00.00.25.pngWhat is with this show and underestimating each other? Did you not hear her Rider? She said she was king of Britain and they are both are legends or important people in history unless the servant’s don’t actually know this about each other? Though Saber did seem interested in discovering Lancer’s identity, so they must know they are all important/powerful people, so why are you completely ignoring that Rider?!

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 00.06.12.pngOh wow, so you do care for the kid! I didn’t think it would make me feel all proud and mushy inside though and calling out Waver’s teacher was so much more satisfying than I expectedScreen Shot 2018-05-06 at 00.08.51.png

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 00.12.05.pngOh my god, I was wondering where the hell you were! Well welcome back I guess! I wonder how powerful his servant is? I also want to see him interact with the other masters at some point (Though hopefully not if they’re trying to kill him) Don’t hide away for to long! Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 00.17.14.png

I may not like you but bloody hell that is a cool power!

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 00.20.06.png

Oh, so they don’t have to follow the command right away? Thats interesting to note. Though I expect he won’t take to kindly to being ordered around. I can’t wait to find out his identity.

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 00.24.20.pngI hope they won’t find him, I don’t give a rats ass about his servant but I do like white hair dudes character, especially because he is doing this to save someone. \Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 00.29.17.pngI knew there was a reason I liked you! Nice Save! Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 00.32.36.png

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 00.34.14.pngAnd I knew there was a reason I hated you…. Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 18.29.25.pngNoooooooo!

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 18.30.52.pngYep, trying to snipe the other masters but he might not be much help or he would have killed the other masters by now.

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 18.32.52.pngPlease do! If you manage to kill him I may remove you from my shit list. Anyway I hope you’ve actually got the right person in your sites there…

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 18.36.30.pngNo! Wrong timing Rider!

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 18.37.28.pngI love this shot though. Though I am incredibly disappointed that Lancers master wasn’t killed. Or all the times to be awesome you had to pick this one.

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 18.43.35.pngPoor Lancer, I really feel for him! Hopefully his master has at least some clever brain cells in there and makes him withdraw. Lancer can’t win against Saber AND Rider.

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 18.50.00.pngI am not surprised at all, haha. I think his had enough for one day Rider! And most probably realised what a mess he has gotten himself into. Though I do wonder what he thought it would be like, if he is this shocked/scared, not that I blame him.

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 18.52.40.png

So is there a way to change Masters because I’d rather Iri be your master to be honest. And I ship them so much. They are so cute! Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 18.55.49.pngIt doesn’t seem to be a war to me? Far to small. Maybe it should be called Holy Grail Battles instead though I guess it doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 19.00.14.pngIs that a bat? So is this what the sniper guy meant by familiar to watch the church? You didn’t exactly do a good job at not being caught though…

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 19.02.45.pngLet me guess, Saber? Oh god, don’t tell me you have crush on Saber….

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 19.04.30.pngI am doubting myself, are you talking about Saber? Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 19.05.26.pngOh no, you are! I was right. What a creepy crush. I guess it’ll make their interactions interesting? Though I hope Saber kills him, just because he is making me incredibly uncomfortable right now.Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 19.09.00.png

Screen Shot 2018-05-06 at 19.10.10.png

This is where you leave me? On that creepy note? (Cries) 

 

Last Sentence Take Away: 

Why Rider! Why? This was the perfect chance to kill Waver’s teacher! So far my most disliked characters is the Caster, surprisingly not for his murdering tendencies but his crush on Saber, Waver’s teacher and the Servant who could make weapons fly because he’s an arrogant prick.
