Fate/Zero episode 05

Boy am I glad to see that this anime is going in the right direction. I thought it was going to be predictable, because according to Fate/Stay Night it was Gilgamesh who won the last war for the Holy Grail, which would spoil the ending for Fate/Zero.  But it’s getting really interesting even though that piece of information is known to us.

The episode simply continues where the last one ended. That Rider seriously has one big ego; he interrupts the fight between Saber and Lancer, introduces himself using his real identity and he, if that’s not enough, invites both of them to join him in his quest for world domination. All of this occurs whilst his master is covering in that chariot like a six year old would under his/her parents’ bed. Now Gilgamesh joins the party in order to kill Rider. He might’ve succeeded too, would it not be for Berserker’s sudden appearance.

I would like to point out one obvious thing; Berserker looks AWESOME! Seriously, Fate/Stay Night’s Berserker couldn’t ever hold a candle to Fate/Zero’s Berserker. He is pretty strong too, he managed to get Gilgamesh serious for a while, too bad that Tokiomi, apparently Gilgamesh’s master, used one of his command seals to make him stop and leave.

Things only got worse from there on in. Berserker made Saber his new target. This would’ve been okay, would it not be for the fact that Lancer’s master used a command seal to make him attack Saber as well. It’s a good thing that Rider is an old fashioned guy that cares a great deal for a warrior’s pride. He ran Berserker over using that big chariot of his, causing Berserker to retreat. Rider and Kanye West might both be the same size when it comes to egos, but at least Berserker has style and pride.

There’s one thing I don’t understand; what’s happening with Caster? Does his master understand what it means to be a participant in this war? Those two have been keepings things off the radar and have yet to show any interest in this war. Both of them are murdering psychopaths, one would think that they would all over the place, looking to kill participants. I really hope that those two are the first ones to go, I really do hope that.
