Yep
I actually believed for a second that
Spoiler :
he'd let Lancer's master live

But I don't even blame him for it, I didn't like him anyway

On different note:
Am I the only one who never really cared for Saber, not even in Fate/stay night?
I would be glad to see Rider win this war, but as we all know.. that's not gonna happen :,(

also
Spoiler :
I've been thinking this ever since Gilgamesh and Kirei spoke with each other for the first time in the first half of /Zero
I think that Kirei is gonna kill Tohsaka out of curriousness or something and that he will form contract with Gilga

Either way, Gilga is more sympathetic for me then he was in /Stay Night

In both fate/stay night and fate/stay zero everyone except Gilgamesh and rider (zero rider) is too damn serious. I like both of them just because they're more off beat. Gilgamesh mostly has a "I don't give a shit because I'm so awesome" attitude while rider's attitude is just awesome in general.

Lancer and Sabre are too caught up in their codes of honor, both casters were just messed up people (although the female caster did have here dere side, and ironically both casters seemed to get along with their masters the best out of all the heroic souls), and both assassins were kind of minor characters over all lol, they both got taken out without much effort. and fare/stay archer was just too emo, kinda like his original self heh.

@uncreative

Great, now do one with /人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\

Seriously, if it's one thing I've learned from anime, NEVER sign any contracts.

As for the episode, holy shitballs that was intense.

Spoiler :
If Emiya Kiritsugu didn't personify tvtropes's What the Hell, Hero? before, he sure does now.

Spoiler :
Diarmuid D': *sobs*
I'm glad his master(s) died though. Didn't like either of them, especially in this episode.

This was a really cool episode though.
He certainly DOES get his biznas done, jesuschrist. xD

As for the Gil/Saber discussion,
Spoiler :
I understand what you're saying, and that's probably the mindset both of them have. In their battle in Stay Night though it felt like, 'Heres this incredibly powerful and bloodthirsty servant who's going to fight King Arthur. As the battle progresses he looks like he's acknowledging her power, and even admiring it.' It wasn't really the idea of a realistic relationship, but more along the lines of, 'Wow, only Saber has had this effect on the King of Heroes. He's showing a weaker side of him because of this, that's sorta cute.' And when he was defeated in the battle he wasn't like clawing at the ground trying to be like 'YOU'RE GOIN' TO HELL WITH ME', he accepted his fate and left Saber to her fate, believing that she could achieve success. I think Gil secretly does have a bit of feelings for Saber, but he's too clouded by his own pride and dignity to come to terms with it. Anyways, THAT'S why I sorta like Gil/Saber (but I mean o' course I like Saber/Shiro from Stay Night more because hello canon cuteness).

Ep 17, this may be your last chance, if you have not watched fate/stay night then hurry and watch it now before it is too late

Spoiler :
Gawwwwwww, the scene with chibi Rin really moved me because we all knew exactly what was going to happen. Although it really is ironic that Kirie gets that dagger from Kotomine, then kills him with it, then gives it to Rin when she finishes her apprenticeship under him and then Shiro uses it to kill Kirie at the end of Fate/Stay night. It's given as a gift from master to apprentice twice and then used to kill both masters.

I'm really bummed about Kotomine dying, he was one of the only top class mages in this war (heck in both wars) and he never had a chance to really shine (his fight with berserker's master was too one sided). On the other hand it was pretty cool to see Kirie's final step in his fall into evil.

And I actually watched the closing credits for the first time, another Gawwwww moment, since it shows scenes of Kiritsugu and Irisviel from before the war started. Dangit, we know how that's going to end as well. DEPRESSING! I need to watch some carnival phantasm to cheer up.

Anyway, next ep looks like it's going to focus on Rider's master and his past, at least from the preview.

Spoiler :
Okay, I have to say that ep 18 didn't really satisfy my curiousness about Kiritsugu, but ep 19 really did it
I actually didn't even think that he'd shoot her down until the moment I saw him with that bazooka
but man! was it a beautiful scene <3

Maiya!!

Damn them!
I don't want to see either one of them to loose. I don't really care about Saber to be honest but Kiritsugu is an awesome character. And of course, I don't wanna see Rider team to loose either. :(
Well, unfortunately we all pretty much know how that will end...

ok, just watched 18-20 all in one go as I wanted to get the flashback scenes out of the way and get back to the action...big mistake

SO DEPRESSING!!! All these awesome characters keep dropping like flies, finally at least next week it looks like we'll get back to some good action.
