Oh well, no battle between Gilgamesh and Saber. Just an episode of wrapping everything up. Not really much to say about it…it’s just a bunch of setup for Fate/Stay Night, so nothing really exciting or unexpected going on. Poor Kiritsugu fails his mission, then Shirou decides to go and become a hero himself (and basically make the same mistakes with much stronger ideals).
I did find it interesting, though, that although Kiritsugu was portrayed as a sort of protagonist, he is basically broken in the end and Kirei finds new life (quite literally). I guess this just supports my assertion that Waver is the main character.
It has been a pretty entertaining series, I’d say. I hear a lot about material from the light novel that’s missing, but I say it worked out okay in the end. That being said, I am a little curious and might pick up the light novel somewhere. Hope you’ve enjoyed as I have…I will try to review the whole series soon.
