Fate/Zero Season One

**Spoilers for all of season one!**



I figured I'd get a topic started for this since there wasn't one already and I just watched it so I'm all fangirl-y at the moment.

For the series as a whole, I'm pretty happy about it. the animation is great, music is great, and the plot is pretty nice for a prequel. usually with prequels I'm like "Well.. I already know what happens alter so... -don't care-" But with this I love survival game/tournament plots and it's kept some Servants we knew while giving us some new ones with new powers.

I also like that it's more graphic what with the child murdering and whatnot. I can't believe they had Gilles de Rais be one of the Eirei, considering he wasn't really a hero at all, but given his master that's who he ended up compatable with. I really can't wait for them to beat him to death and get to the real fighting.

Iskander makes me happy lol His master is whiny, and I don't even remember his name half the time but he's decent comic relief in all this, while also being pretty wise. I liked his opinion on Kingship during that discussion they had, and that he's a good middle between Saber believing a king is only for the people, and Gilgamesh believing the things/people are all for the king. Plus it's nice to see the Rider class actually riding lol.

On top of that though, yuri subtext! Very Happy Saber is such an adorable knight for Iri~

(Side note: Am I the only one who really thought Lancer was Zack Fair for way too long? LOL)

It's the corruption from Angra Maniyu in the Grail that allows the summoning of villainous/monstrous legends as Servants (similar to how Medusa and Medea were summoned in the original Fate/stay night).

Oh, yes, that pair are hilarious. And truthfully, Rider is a perfect Servant for Waver because just like Waver, he has no interest in upholding the formulaic system of the Holy Grail Wars just like Waver wants to cut through the family-based caste system of the Mages' Association. Waver's just a little less manly about it than Rider. Wink

...hm, I like the two of them together (it's interesting, really, how Iri is someone Saber feels she can work with and serve with all her might, but Kiritsugu she just puts up with to the point that she'd have let him get killed if Lancer wasn't a man of his word--or if Kayneth had been able to use a Command Spell to get Lancer to snuff Kiritsugu against his will right there and then), but I seriously have to no-sell any subtext given how ridiculously Happily Married Irisviel is.

I offer this:



She can be swayed!

You may now return to your regularly scheduled programming.

Namely, Season 2.

Spoiler:
Berserker hijacked an F-15. Gilgamesh has his own spaceship that lets him -SMUGSMUGSMUG- while dogfighting with the Berserkerfied F-15. Kariya bitches out Tokiomi. Tokiomi -SMUGSMUGS- back at Kariya. Kiritsugu snipes his first Master after a season of relative un-snipey-ness.

New episode airs later this morning.

All in all, it's looking pretty good so far.
