ep 11 O M G!!! Rider just won the prize for most kick ass servant and king.
screw Gilgamesh and his vault of weapons and wine, Iskander brings and entire army of heroic spirits. I thought the assassins were going to be pretty bad ass later on but they just got slaughtered. How do you even beat him? maybe by killing him before he can summon it. Anyway, rider is officially my hero. His speech was pretty cool as well. Screw self sacrifice, a king embodies the desires and dreams of his subjects so he must want everything. heh. I'm even more depressed that he doesn't end up actually winning the grail war. This ep is going to be hard to beat as far as epicness.
I was looking so forward to this anime since I loved Fate/staynight, but than I completely forgot about it till I saw this post I just finished episode 11 last night. Loved it! Can't wait for more! Its nice to see Saber again.. she's so cool!
I always thought that Gilgamesh was gonna kill Tokiomi since he wasn't in Fate/stay night and since Gilgamesh found Tokiomi to be really boring unlike Kirei... It looks like he just really well manipulated Kirei into killing him... Can't wait
Also, as for the previous episode; Rider was totally awesome as well as his Noble Phantasm.. I didn't even think that he killed assassin but he actually did.. Never thought that he would send all of them at once.
It will start changing direction really quick from here on rider was one of the main focal points up until act 2ish it should start shifting more towards saber, archer, and beserker here soon. Once this big ol fight is done with Also note the planes and note beserkers ability and brace for awesome.
Anyone see the Fate/Prototype OVA that came out, basically it's the author's original idea behind Fate/Stay Night, HUGE changes were made before the actual release so this shows what he first envisioned. It's pretty cool, half the character's genders are reversed lol
With all the type moon stuff being released they really need either a remake of tsukihime or an anime of melty blood
however it's nowhere on par with the fate/stay night series, was made a while back and the production values arn't that great, plus the voice acting feels way off for some of the characters. That and it didn't really follow the storyline all that well (only so much you can do in 12 eps). that's why I said they need to remake it
It seems I forgot to post here after I finished the series.
SO awesome; I really loved Part 1, and I can't wait for April with Part 2!
Also goddamnit Caster, I went almost three whole episodes without seeing your terrifying face and then
you go Godhax and centralized in the last episode. Dear Christ that Leviathan of a monster, WHY. That dialogue between his Master and himself was eerily awesome though, with the whole discussion of God. Everything seems so normal and yet they're both deranged psychopaths.
1. Tentacles 2. Gilgamesh apparently has a space ship in his vault 3. Berserker can take over fighter jets (I'm imagining this awesome image of him breaking into a military armory and going rambo) 4. Showdown between two masters who are both using their own styles of magic. 5. Sabre about to actually do something impressive (already know the result from scenes in fate/stay night)
Only downside is having to wait a week to see the next ep.
