Past, present, and future are meaningless for heroic spirits. As I said before, Shirou knows Archer is his ideal, a Shirou who perfected his skills and became a Heroic Spirit.

Post was not sent - check your email addresses! http://i.imgur.com/hlp4HDG.gif. ++ triples the power etc. I’m afraid people will be confused with how Shirou will even stand a chance against Archer but we’ll see. A: They were passed out quite cheerfully. This is what happened in the Fate route: Q: When Kotomine activated the Grail at Ryuudou Temple, what happened to Issei and the rest of the monks? So he will reproduce a holy sword that can do beams, but it’s not Excalibur, because he simply can’t make it.]. I mean it’s a wonderful twist that Saber and Rin establish their contract, but I personally feel that it was more powerful in the VN. http://i.imgur.com/qiVwn18.gif, New contract: As for translation… yeah when Shirou said the phrase in Japanese, it literally translate as ‘My Body is made of Swords.’ and Archers acknowledges that Shirou has arrived at the starting line and that he has fully awakened. This is the part that finally allowed me to understand why Lancer could have been summoned as Caster. That btw also makes Cu Chulainn ten times better than Diarmuid in FZ in my eyes. Well, his line that even in his state he could still kill a thousand Shinjis was also awesome. Like I said, besides basic class stats and Master boost, it also depends on the Heroic Spirit. But before I talk about that, first, the scene with Lancer. It has more to do with the catastrophic sound mixing of the tv broadcast. I want her to be in debt to me.”. You don’t break nature’s rules, you just replace them. Lancer also makes use of his rune magecraft again. Ditto. You are right, IH does disappear when a large portion of the army is defeated, but the reason for that is that the army shares the burden of maintaining the RM together with Rider. Unlike his original story, he had lived a normal life with his parents until they died in an accident where he would have perished too had it not been for that world's Kiritsugu saving him and taking him in as his parent and mentor. Finally! Indeed it is a bit BS that he able to pull it out when he barely materialize it the previous time… but mind you… he did take a hell of a beating from Lancer and I bet he used a fair amount to recover himself and conserving what little mana left, he is now squeezing every last drop of it to put Shirou down. Whilst Archer at the end of the journey of becoming a hero with a wasteland filled with swords like grave markers to be the Dusk version of UBW as ‘Night’. That doesn’t include Noble Phantasms of course. http://i.imgur.com/28ILlj4.gif http://i.imgur.com/qz4Fefz.gif Shinji calls for Gilgamesh, but the Servant never shows up. I already mentioned Shirou’s structural analysis many months ago, and how he often guesses the structure and the materials with his eyes and all of it is also available in his own world. I think it’s more that the anime failed to adapt this scene than anything. Past or future do not matter. It was purely about destructive power and conceptual rank. Rin must not have stayed by his side. Emiya Shirou's voice channelled through and towards the red knight, a sense of urgency and warning strongly present. The great fire caused by the wish of Kotomine at the end of Fourth Holy Grail War killed both his parents and left him mortally wounded within the blaze. However, Archer’s words imply that he was not able to save Saber from her fate in his life, like Shirou did in the Fate route. Shirou’s conversation with Saber was a bit earlier (around midnight, which is when he leaves the house, as it takes very long to reach the Einzbern Castle). Having Lancer not be quite dead yet does allow him to get revenge on Kirei and have one more comedic moment with Shinji. Which would also be bad sounding in English, but the gist is “What you say is correct but not just,” or something like that. Shirou apologizes for the late post. Read the topic about Archer vs. Assassin on MyAnimeList, and join in the discussion on the largest online anime and manga database in the world! Matou Shinji smiles and stares at the knight in red. Shirou absorbs Archer’s memories, when he is close to Archer. http://i.imgur.com/SIm1FkM.gif On the 2nd of February, Shinji requested Shirou to stay back late at school to clean the archery grounds. It is the foundation of Shirou’s magic and the only thing that is granted to him. I’m afraid people will be confused with how Shirou will even stand a chance against Archer but we’ll see. Yes, you’re right. Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works – 20 review The biggest gripe for me in this episode is that Shirou didn’t exactly countered Archer’s sword rain in his reality marble. He also defeated and slept with Scathach’s enemy, Aife, who was also Scathach’s twin sister. As an anti-unit NP, it’s probably one of the best out there. What I didn’t like though was the abrupt end of the Reality Marble (yeah, I saw cogwheels crumbling), when Shirou started to oppose Archer’s sword rain. It seems like they moved the scene with Lancer to the end of the episode. …All he has is unordered knowledge. No Church on the Hill, no Whirlpool of Death, no Clashing Souls, so the use of Emiya during the fight transition at that point was pretty good. Why… Why do you wish for such an end? Learn how your comment data is processed. But these are not part of the 21 Command Spells the Greater Grail produces every Grail War, they are leftovers from the earlier wars. Archer kept running forward and was driven by his obsessive drive to help others and Archer didn’t know in the first place who he actually wanted to save. During the first 2 days of the war, Shirou developed a set of Command Spells on his left hand, officiating him as a participant of the war. As a result, Archer kidnaps Rin and gives Shirou a day to meet him at Ilya’s castle. It played when Shirou started chanting UBW in the VN, and perhaps they are willing to use it again next episode, but if they do, it would be the third time in three episodes and I kinda think they might overuse it. It is pretty clear that Shinji just wants to rape Rin on top of whatever other plans he and Gilgamesh have for her. She likely analyzed the system and prepared three new Command Spells for herself when she would eventually get Saber. What we see in this episode is the first half of Answer. But that is still far off. Archer then tries to destroy him on a physical and mental battlefield but Shirou proves to be resilient enough to survive both, with a moment's hesitation at the end giving Shirou the victory. I was never sure how Shirou got them out of UBW. That night, Shirou wakes up with Saber tending to him. ), A Certain Scientific Railgun Vol. ). Archer’s murmur at that time was thick with a heartfelt and madly passionate affection. Heh. Whatever we get, I’m sure it’ll be pretty amazing. Hold on, Gilgamesh. There’s no such thing as a “moral fall” + Jerry Falwell Jr’s IG. Sorry for the slight delay – Junko’s got some business to attend to so I’ll take both of these. Granted, Gilgamesh is allowing Shinji to call the shots, but as arrogant and Gilgamesh is, I thought he’d do more than call Archer a faker (in English no less). Yeah I remember something from the description in Fate Extra. I’m glad they finally show them. With Shirou: http://i.imgur.com/RVswdD0.jpg This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Him saying, that a Heroic Spirit doesn’t just go down like that was like a major FU to Diarmuid. The great part is that Shirou didn’t actually use different words for “correct” and “right” lol, Literally he said, “Your correctness is only correct.”. Furthermore, UBW didn’t look very good. It is in my opinion the most important chapter in UBW. Welp, looking at where my new comment popped up, and I guess this comment was in the right place after all! A: Divine constructs like Ea and Excalibur are non-replicable. Right now, my objective is to kill Emiya Shirou. A Reality Marble is one of the greatest forms of magecraft one can achieve as a mage. I’d been waiting for Avalon to get a mention, but until now, there hasn’t been a hint of it, at least not that I noticed. While she may not originally have received any Command Spells, Caster may have skillfully borrowed the power of the Greater Grail to forge herself an imitation. I wasn’t really sure how she figured it out, but it was clear to me by the end of the episode that she knew Archer was Shirou. It probably wouldn’t have fitted in the episode, but this part about Rin was something I also consider important: I, Tohsaka Rin, have never had any hardships in my life. ANB on YouTube! Shirou has her promise to let him face Archer since Shirou knows he and Archer are the same person. Oh, Gil actually immediately identified Archer as someone he must kill. Alright, first, we do a great job with Lancer’s final moments. To force them to acknowledge your greatness. Share your thoughts, experiences and the tales behind the art. Lancer is waiting for Shirou and Saber as Rin recounts how Archer’s life as Shirou was one where he was constantly betrayed, eventually by his own ideals. They kept most parts of Rin’s monologue, which I consider a good thing. Saber with a ponytail! What is worth mentioning is the fact that if we assume Shirou doesn’t know about his Reality Marble, it would take him twenty years to utilize it. The next morning, the leave and are joined by Lancer after Shirou accepts his offer of help. The biggest gripe for me in this episode is that Shirou didn’t exactly countered Archer’s sword rain in his reality marble. http://i.imgur.com/NScpRCw.gif, Dream about Archer: I always thought of Shirou vs Archer as a very symbolic fight… like yes Archer wants to kill Shirou and puts him out of his misery but at the same time he can’t do that whilst a past version of himself is still clinging onto the concept of becoming a hero hence why he pushing himself to utmost limits to break Shirou’s will, by showing him quite literally this is all that awaits you if you stubbornly cling onto your ideals. Concernant toutes les théories sur les différentes versions d'Archer, je rappelle que Shirou ne devient jamais Archer, quelle que soit la route choisie. He also remembers something Archer had forgotten — Kiritsugu had implanted Avalon inside Shirou, which is Saber’s scabbard for Excalibur, explaining how Shirou was able to summon Saber and how he was able to survive. I kinda figured, but I wasn’t totally sure. As Nasu announced in an interview, ufotable would split up the fight into two episodes with vast changes regarding the portrayal, compared to the VN, though with the same conclusion. It shows that Shirou has been absorbing Archer’s power and experience throughout the series since that’s what’s been happening but in this anime it won’t be spelled out like in the VN. Slow is good. The first half of the episode is basically an adaptation of the chapter Reality Marble, and as the title says, it’s when Archer reveals his world. I should probably not try and judge comment columns and where they should be when I should be sleeping…. So when Archer and Shirou have their final confrontation, I kinda expect it to be a Reality Marble vs. With Gae Bolg. Yeah, I was wondering why they omitted that line. Though correct me if I’m wrong… UBW is similar to Ionioi Hetairoi… If a large portion of the army is destroyed the Reality Marble will be undone… so despite UBW allowing Archer to reproduce weapons with a reduce cost on mana… if you destroy a large portion of the weapons inside the Reality Marble should disappear right? http://i.imgur.com/O2RuZRd.gif, Parry and collapsing Reality Marble: ^_^. Now about Shirou vs Archer. I half-wonder if it was a case of “We’ve got what we think is a cool animation that took 1/4 of our budget, so we’re going to use it any time we have an excuse… even if it’s a blatant contradiction of the rules of the story universe.”. Main Allies: Saber, Rin Tohsaka, Archer/Future Shirou Emiya, Sakura Matou, Illya, Kiritsugu Emiya, Ruby Rose. Rider’s RM is closer to an actual Noble Phantasm. I don’t consider Kirei and Caster as normal masters btw. So when this fight started, my initial thought while watching the episode was, “OK, I thought you wanted to kill Shirou, not blab constantly, even if it is for exposition that is needed.” It was after I’d paced about for a while and pondered things that I came to the conclusion you cite about Archer wanting Shirou to acknowledge things. Shirou: “W-What’s with that? The anime simply cannot just show the fighting, and let Shirou get beaten up by Archer a bit while Archer talks him down a bit in an intense fight, which is what the movie did. Shirou’s greatest enemy is himself. ANB on YouTube! Assassin vs Saber and Caster vs Archer. Shirou is relatively clam compared to Assassin's shock, and immediately has Assassin send orders for Archer to pursue him in an attempt to stop him, though very unlikely. There were visual hints though in episode 1, right when Saber is summoned. 09-Oct-2020 : Reached post dated March 22, 2009, and quite a number of scattered ones earlier than that (usually based on cross-linkage, reader requests to fix, or what’s currently trending), including all of 2006.
