It’s been awhile since I did a random post… and since I had just posted a review of the latest episode of Fate/Zero, I figured that I might as well post some other random interesting things/news on Fate/Zero. =)
This post is basically random stuff related to Fate/Zero that I had stumbled upon on. Most of these stuff are stuff that you may have already seen before if you are an avid fan that track Fate/Zero news. But for others who usually don’t, this post is just to provide some fun reading for you.
Hope you enjoy the post.
Episode 13 (Final) – The Forbidden Banquet
Well, it was definitely no shocker that the show had decided to end on a cliffhanger as multiple teams gang up to take down their common enemy – Caster.
It was definitely the most logical way to end the series with the last scene having left people wanting for more. The unsatisfying part for me was the fact that it had taken the series 13 episodes of character development to get to the start of a major battle in the Holy Grail War.
Episode 12 – The Grail’s Invitation
More character development and recaps on the current state of things as well as more dialogue with no action anywhere in sight.
I don’t want to sound like an idiot that is only able to enjoy a show when there is action in it, but the fact that all we have been seeing thus far leans more towards character development instead of plot development does make me feel a tad upset.
Episode 11 – The Grail Dialogue
You know that an episode is going to be pretty heavy-handed on the dialogue when the episode title essentially sums everything up by stating it. Thankfully, the animators had decided to throw in a nice short action moment towards the end to make things exciting.
One can’t help but be moved by Rider’s pep talk about kings in this episode. With his epic roar, I too felt like shouting out my enthusiasm. But as much as I had loved seeing Rider taking on a main role in this episode, it was still sad that the episode had essentially amount to nothing.
Episode 10 – Rin’s Adventure
As the title of the episode suggests, this episode follows Rin and her “participation” in the Holy Grail War.
I am not really sure what the purpose behind focusing on Rin is meant to be, as ultimately, she hadn’t done anything critical that would leave a huge impact on the war. This episode had instead seemed like a way to do small recap on the current standing of things through the use of Rin chasing after the Serial Kidnapper, Ryunosuke, as well as a way to cover some backstory of the events behind the kidnappings.
Poor Lancer. T^T
Episode 09 – Master and Servant
This was another good episode for Fate/Zero. Naturally, the show is starting to display a pattern.
After a huge important battle that hints at pushing the plot forward, the show takes a break from the action to evaluate all the other pairings and the outcome of that particular “group meeting” (For some reason, they always seem to appear as a group to battle rather than a simple one on one).
I am not sure if this is due to the huge amount of main characters, but whatever the reason is, it is starting to look like all the important battles that would push the plot progress of the Holy Grail War will be taking place in the second season whilst this first season merely sets up the stage, and hopefully finishes the chase after Caster.
Episode 08 – Magus Killer
Kirei appears as tension is running high.
Although the pacing of the episode was done pretty well, the execution of the display of the fights was not something that I had loved too much.
Episode 07 – The Evil Forest
This episode is definitely a game changing episode.
Things that we had thought we had known of the characters have started to change and the rules of the game have also been altered due to Caster’s actions. It is now an all out hunt to gain the upper hand in this War.
Episode 6 – Night of Schemes
Good Morning Everyone! (or afternoon or night) =P
This episode essentially focuses on the exploration of Kirei’s character and gives us some direction as to how the battles might be spit up in this series.
In contrast to last episode’s high action and adrenaline pumping atmosphere, this episode takes the dialogue heavy approach and focuses on character and plot development.
