EXCALIBUR!!! Need I say more?
Well if you want me to keep going, then… this episode is amazing. Whether or not you knew what was coming, I think we can all agree on that. The scene where Tokiomi unleashes fire on Kariya is really intense. I mean, it’s great to finally see him do something, but it’s also hard to watch Kariya suffer like that for a good cause…with the bugs, the blood popping out of his skin, and then being engulfed in flames. Jeezus. I don’t quite know if Kirei saving his life is a blessing or not. If I were him, I’d be like…man, this sucks. xD
It’s really neat how the servants work together. Rider traps Caster in a reality marble to buy the others time. *wishes I could have seen inside.* Once Lancer and Gilgamesh help clear Berserker away from Saber, Rider drops Caster in front of her to face her noble phantasm. EXCALIBUR!!! *enjoys shouting this if you can tell* The humans play an important role as well, as Emiya signals the spot and Waver communicates that to Rider’s subordinate. Lol at Irisviel, the crazy driver, for getting freaked out over a phone.
So yeah, Caster finally says bye-bye. He’s lucky. His death looks way too peaceful, with Joan holding her hand out and guiding him towards the light… But it’s the light that makes Saber so awesome and beautiful. *sparkle sparkle* Upon evaluating Saber’s performance, it’s funny how Rider still says “But she’s just a little giiirl” and Gilgamesh is clearly impressed…in a tad creepy way. No wait, I think Kirei’s smirk is creepier. Anyways. So much awesomeness to come next that I’m really pumped up~ x3 Though I did manage to refrain from completing the last volume so the anime would surprise me a little bit.
