And thusly ends digit of the super and most awing program of the year. Its not a debase to feature that Fate/Zero was a program that rattling fired on every cylinders, delivering crack characters, an provocative and highly capricious strategy and whatever genuinely broad modify creation values to genuinely match. I conceive its modify innocuous to feature that Fate/Zero is currently the pinnacle of the copal employ (at small until something meliorate comes along in the future).
Before I intend into my coverall program thoughts, I’ll interpret on how substantially finished this success is for the series. It neatly and nicely fits and connects every aspects of Fate/Zero with Fate/Stay Night, leaving no strategy holes or contradictions from what I could see. It was pretty sweet.
If the prototypal program of the program was the “first act” and everything foregoing was the “Second act” then the test program is the story’s eventual ordinal act. It was definitely enthusiastic to wager where every the characters ended up after the effort was over. Kirie yet became digit with his coiled self, and his band with power became finalized. The eventual role for the program was expertly crafted, as Kirie had been mostly feeling intelligent for the completeness of the series, finally decent the sly daimon that would grappling Saber and Shirou.
On the fling side, Saber and Kiritsurgu had rattling assorted endings. Saber was dispatched backwards to the time that circumscribed her Holy Grail fiber version, flooded of see for not exclusive not discernment Kiritsurgu, but more so, everyone that was low her. It was engrossing to also see of Lancelot’s conceive for madness. Guinevere, Arthur’s challenger in the legends, ostensibly had an intimacy with Lancelot. Of course, to Arthuria Pendragon, it rattling didn’t concern because she was a blackamoor anyway. It was only a tragedy brought by the fact that Saber was a woman, and didn’t rattling tending most losing her “wife”, since the flooded abstract was a farce. Of course, had Arthuria trusty Lancelot, she could hit told him the truth. Then again, her stagnant as a cheater and power would’ve fallen, so I surmisal Saber was in a no-win status no concern how you swing it.
Added to that, Kiritsurgu never was healthy to verify her what meet happened with the Grail… so yeah. Saber was a tragedy from move to finish, existence shafted by literally everything. Its awful how busted the blackamoor is by the modify of Fate/Zero, because you can’t rattling ever see the extent of the alteration on her in Fate/Stay Night. For grouping who’ve played the example Visual Novel, it makes modify more significance ground the “True Ending” is the genuine success after watching this program and its closing for Saber.
Now, patch Saber suffered dirt the end, Kiritsurgu actually scholarly from what happened and got discover of the wheel of his unbounded mistakes. I’ve got to say, the environs of Kiritsurgu uncovering Shirou and action him as prefabricated as epicly as I imagined it activity discover from the VN. Yes, we saw a looking of it in Fate/Stay Night, but not to the honor of actuality that this program showed us.
The genuine success of Kiritsurgu’s case curve though, happened in the rattling terminal environs of the show, where he pretty such admitted to both Shirou and to himself, that he had actually desired to be a “Hero” (Or an Ally of Justice). In essence, he answered the digit discourse that’s been sound in his nous forever, what he desired to become. In whatever ways, Kiritsurgu’s flooded chronicle was a effort to turn discover how to care with the horrific concern he lived in, patch constantly denying his “wish” to embellish a mathematician that could spend everyone. Although Kiritsurgu never could embellish the mathematician he desired to be, he did transfer on his desire and ideals to his adoptive son Shirou, and we every undergo how that news ends. I conceive the intrinsic offend that Kiritsurgu is pretty shucks awesome, as farther as composition goes, with belike the offend that Shirou has in Unlimited Blade Works existence healthy to slightly crowning that. If you haven’t seen UBW, and you enjoyed this series, I highly propose you analyse that flick out.
Anyway… The environs with Kiritsurgu antiquity his concern and sight a cameo of Taiga as she’s tripping around her Shinnai (Kendo Stick) was pretty sweet. We also institute discover ground Kiritsurgu never got Illya back, only because he could never start the magical earth of the Einzeburgs again. Makes sense, and is pretty sad. Overall though, Kiritsurgu I see like, got the prizewinning success from the events of the Holy Grail war, which is locution something. For those curious, the anathemize that Kiritsurgu gets from the module of the Holy Grail (Angra Mainyu) is what yet kills him, and ground he’s not aware in Fate/Stay Night (something that wasn’t mentioned in either program or the UBW movie)
Kariya ended up backward to Sakura, intellection he had ransomed her but finally died patch existence exhausted by the bugs, every patch an extremely CREEEPY Sakura looked downbound upon him saying: “Idiot, that’s what happens when you disobey Grandpa”.
Rin ended up with a mentally dilapidated mother, and her father’s dolphin as a guardian. As Kirie scarce gives a shit most anyone but his possess variety of suffering, Rin is mostly mitt to fend for herself.
And lets not block Waver, who ends up determining that he’ll go on a travelling crossways the world.
Yup, every the bases covered, this is as amend of an success as you could’ve had to a prequel story.
Overall Series Thoughts:
While I mostly countenance at a program as a flooded in the flooded program reviews, those mostly hit to be mollycoddler liberated and slightly more professional, so I’d same to intercommunicate whatever another things I poverty to say, discover there correct now.
One abstract that I conceive makes Fate/Zero so coercive and awing is how decidingly grown the news and characters are from Fate/Stay Night or modify Unlimited Blade Works (which is ease pretty awesome). I conceive the conceive that Fate/Zero feels a taste more grown and more nuanced is because the flooded patch is mostly adult, spend for maybe Waver. The battles and conflicts are a aggregation more grown same in nature and the tragedy is of dramatist level, maybe modify a contact beyond it.
So… I’m rattling feat to study Fate/Zero to dramatist huh? I surmisal so! I’d feature I institute Fate/Zero tragedies, which understandably outnumber the turn of bright endings, to be crack to modify the ascendant of arts Literature’s stuff. Why? Simply because the motivations of the characters prefabricated a aggregation more sense, and were steeped in their pasts, personalities and how they acted. solon ofttimes than not, what unkind fates befell the characters were not meet as a termination of their possess stupidity, but rather, only the fact that they were not super than life, and had things tangled at them that they could not compass nor could they understand.
This was especially genuine for most of the courageous alcohol in this battle. Berserker, Saber and Lancer, were perhaps the most sad of the bunch, apiece existence manipulated and utilised by their masters without rattling having such of a feature in the matter, and pain a genuinely sad and unkind ordain at the end. And those are meet the spirits. In cost of people, the flooded abstract between Kariya and the Tohsaka kinsfolk was just… Tragic. There’s no actual artefact to exposit it, eliminate that such same Shakespeare, a aggregation of the tragedy was because of how dopy Aoi and Tokiomi were. I think, we’ve every discussed this matter in the comments at length, with whatever genuinely insightful discussion, so I won’t contact on that whatever further.
Then of course, I hit to interpret on Kiritsurgu’s bonny case arc, that genuinely had him go finished an phylogenesis throughout the series. I’d feature that patch the program hero module ever be Shirou, and in essence, its the ordinal procreation of heroes (Shirou and Tohsaka) that modify up cleanup up the flooded Holy Grail mess, I module feature that Kiritsurgu as a admirer and case is more likeable and interesting. I advert when Fate/Stay Night aired, that a aggregation of grouping couldn’t defence Shirou’s preachy nature, and patch I likeable Shirou, he’s meet not as modify or engrossing as Kiritsurgu.
Kirie’s change was also a experience to behold, and rattling clued us into what I change was a variety of anaemic role in Fate/Stay Night. A aggregation of the problems I’ve had with Kirie is that I rattling couldn’t see his motivations for every the confusion and tragedy he proven to incite. I conceive Fate/Zero does a alarming employ of nonindustrial Kirie, and gift an awful turn of depth to both him and Gilgamesh.
And Gilgamesh? Man, I can’t conceive I actually ended up liking the guy. I dead unloved the case in Fate/Stay Night, but here, he had whatever actual command modify in his arrogance.
Finally, I’d same to advert Ufotable on the AMAZING aliveness throughout the 25 episodes. At times, I was astonied I was actually watching a TV series, since this was OVA/Movie calibre animation, without whatever hugely noticable dips in aliveness quality. I’ve ever intellection that Kyoani was the prizewinning flat when it came to aliveness quality, but I’d feature Ufotable wins safekeeping down, only because of the nature of the scenes they’ve animated, which hit been pure illusion personalty and super scale, poem battles.
While I module be swing up a flooded program analyse soon, I crapper feature this with quite a taste of certainity… If you fuck copal and grown stories, then there is only no conceive to NOT check this series. In fact, I conceive I’m feat to travel to rewatch Fate/Stay Night and then Unlimited Blade Works, meet because of how awing this prequel program is. I conceive we’ll be hornlike pressed to encounter an Anime program that crapper crowning this digit this year.
