Not only Rider has the nerves to interfere the fight between the Kings of Knights, he has the audacity to ask them to join him in conquering the world but yielding the Holy Grail to him. Well I guess you can't blame a guy for trying, huh?
Now that Rider and Waver have made known of their existence to the other Masters, obviously Kayneth recognized that pussy ass student of him and further belittled him, just like he did in class. This time he won't be so kind though as he promised to teach Waver what fear and pain truly mean. For some illogical reason, Waver seemed traumatized by those threats. I thought the reason he entered this war is to prove that hard work > heredity. Maybe I was expecting too much from him. Either way, Rider sort of defend him, saying that Waver was the only brave one who has the courage to fight along someone of his stature. Delusional much?
He must be enjoying that ass of Waver too much. To be honest, I am seriously getting tired how this show somehow always focusing back on Rider and Waver.
But at least Rider is good for something. He manages to convince Tokiomi to send out Gilgamesh. Not only that, the fight between Saber and Lancer has also called forth Kiriya and Berserker. Oh yeah. HOLY FUCK indeed. Three Kings of Knights fighting plus a nutjob and King of Conquerer? This better be cum worthy.
And cum worthy it really is. Berserker does not phailed me. He easily deflects any attack from Gilgamesh which further enraged the King. I was totally blown away by the quality of the fight or maybe Berserker is just one cool mothafucka with that black armor of his. I couldn't peel my eyes away. It is just too awesome for words. Kudos Ufotable. You are slowly becoming one of my favorite studios of all time.
Unfortunately though, Gilgamesh is too smug for his own good. He is just ill-tempered and would have opened the gate of Babylon further if Tokiomi doesn't stop him. It was a wise decision. I rather we save Gilgamesh for last. Despite his attitude, he is quite possibly one of the strongest and that noble phantasm of his is definitely among the most troublesome.
This doesn't stop Berserker from going... well, berserk. He quickly changes his opponent to Saber while Rider and Lancer are having a chat. It is revealed that Berserker's noble phantasm is anything that he can get his hands on. Thankfully Lancer cut his chat short otherwise Saber would have been dead getting hit on her head. Unfortunately, his Master is an asshole. Kayneth uses his seal and command Lancer to help Berserker to kill Saber. Jeebus, where is the honor in that? I feel sorry for Lancer. He was humiliated but an order is an order after all no matter how hard he try to fight it. Damn that Magi.
During this whole fight, Emiya and Maiya try hard to find Kiriya to no avail and since Kayneth is being a dick, Emiya has no choice but to fulfill his death wish while Maiya will take down Assassin.
But of course Rider just has to fucking interfere in everything. He pretty much send Berserker back into hiding as well as convinced Kayneth to withdraw unless he wants to see Lancer defeated by threatening to join Saber for the fight. In a way it helps Lancer to regain his self esteem back but at the same time... it's getting rather annoying.
Kiriya is better at hiding than the Assassin lol. He obviously relishes the idea that Berserker is somewhat able to kick everyone's asses if he wishes to do so but mostly he is ecstatic that his Servant has humiliated Gilgamesh. I sorta understand his grudge against Tokiomi. After all he is in this war for Sakura's sake. Having said that, Kiriya has to control Berserker better or he ends up losing his life.
On the other side of town, several things happened:
- One of Kirei assassin found a familiar sneaking around outside the Church barrier. It is possible that the familiar belonged to Emiya since he did send one over.
- Ryuunosuke and Bluebeard were watching the fight through magic crystal ball. This obviously makes Ryuuosuke absolutely jubilant. It looks like they had done some more killing since the last time we saw them. Those splattered blood on the walls...
- Bluebeard by some cruel fate, sorta has a crush on Saber. I shudder at the thought of him fapping to Saber. Jeebus.
To conclude this episode, allow me to once again bring your attention to the Berserker. He possibly the reason why I enjoyed this episode so much. He's all action and no talk, man and I personally think that Ufotable has done such a magnificent job with their character design. Those jet black armor and those black fogs that always surround him just makes him looks so damn formidable. The other Servants have the right to pee in their pantsu with either jealousy or fear. Berserker, you have officially becomes be favorite Servant as of now.
You guys wanna found out who's Berserker really is? Ogiue Maniax has the answer.
