I usually just call her Senjou but yeah Hitagi works.

I'm not a huge fan of the first two eps of Bakemonogatari. Started getting more into it after that.

Fate/Zero episode 2

I'm already loving Rider from his book stealing and declaration of why he's not a thief.

Also I was right about what's the OP, woo.

LMAO Waver is scared s***less of Rider and I love it.

I'm really not sure if Waver is actually supposed to be an amazing mage or not, and I'm curious to see if he's actually that good and it is just the Circle Tower people being idiots or if he's just a c***y teen who is way overestimating his strength. My guess is it will be somewhere in the middle tho.

It's very interesting that the show is using Iskandar rather than Alexander for Rider's name. Is that just how he's referred to in Japanese and does the dub change that?

Kiritsugu's kid is not nearly as cute as Rin. I love that he admits to cheating being his only chance of winning tho, because that seems to be a sum of his life philosophy from his backstory we were told.

Ah so we aren't even pretending Saber isn't Arthur, I was under the impression that's a mystery... But I guess that's only in Stay/Night?

Wow I really don't care about Saber's backstory, and why the stories of her portray her as a man.

WHERE ARE THE GODDAMN FIGHTS UFOTABLE. I've seen what you can do in Demon Slayer, give me that, and not this talking :v

Are we just getting introduced to all the masters and servants now...

Oh god it's a crazy serial killer... I wonder if he's the last? second to last? master... I think the demon he's summoning might be one of the last "heroic" spirits. Not sure whoever this dude fights with can really be considered heroic tho.

Also it says a lot about how much the exposition in the first episode stuck for me that I don't even remember if we got the sixth master revealed already or not.

Yep he's another one, so we prolly are just getting introduced to all the servants this episode.

THE f*** ARE CASTER'S EYES. I hate them.

Okay yeah Caster is by no even remote stretch of the word, heroic. I hope to see both of these two die a horrible death.

... it's f***ing Bluebeard are you f***ing kidding me, that's the opposite of heroic. I wonder if it's actually Gilles or a fictional person. Gilles would be my guess since everyone else seems to be real people, even if they're modified.

So I don't think we got the seventh, because we didn't get a reminder of who that was... but we also didn't get a reminder of the dude who had worms burrow into him so maybe we did.

I wonder what Archer being one of "the three knight classes" could mean... guessing it's a different kind of specialty? Knight makes me suspect it's related to his fighting skill being better in some way.

Assassin infiltrating the Tohsaka's house was really f***ing cool visuals... and thank f*** there's an actual fight... tho it seems Assassin kinda just got destroyed. Gates of Babylon or w/e Archer's special skill is called looked even better than I expected.

Honestly thank f*** this ended on a fight, because I am... not the biggest fan of the pacing thus far. It's still something I'm enjoing, but that was trending downward for most of this episode. I do wonder if the Saber convo worked less for me because I've not seen Stay/Night.

Ah well, hopefully we get more action and less talking in the next episodes.

ED was... fine.

Iskandar isn't what he's typically called in Japan, no. They just went with that for the anime (in the Japanese version, too).

Knights = Saber/Lancer/Archer.

Rider is easily the best part of Fate/Zero

His story was what enabled me to get through the whole thing

Episode 3

"king of kings, king of heroes Gilgamesh"

Fancy ass Archer.

"for Gilgamesh to be summoned into the Archer class, which has the most indepedent actions"... Okay so that seems to be saying that heroes can have multiple classes? That's a cool lore tidbit.

Also hey I just noticed that the a****** professor has a summon thing in the OP, so he's prolly the seventh Master, esp since we see the person he was standing with fighting later in on the OP.

For some odd reason I don't buy that Assassin was actually killed, esp with the line from Tohsaka about trusting Kirei.

Huh they're using the actual president, Clinton right now.

I really hope we find out what the other category(ies) are, besides just Knight.

Noble Phantasms are p interesting of a concept for what their power comes from.

Ah so the Assassin we saw was killed, but Kirei has more assassins? That's p cool. I didn't think about that possibility but it fits so well once it was said.

I love that Kiritsugu immediately saw through the Assassin's death because it was too convenient. Yay for intelligent characters. I also love how he didn't use magic to watch the others, and I wonder if that was intentionally to make the rest underestimate him.

... oh so there's some kinda love triangle with him and Maiya and his actual wife? Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME IT ENDED BEFORE THE FIGHT I AM SALTY AT THAT.

This episode did feel a lot better than the previous episodes tho. I mostly cared about what was happening, and I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it went by.

I don't think this is a spoiler and I'm not sure they even go over it in Zero, but the other classification for classes is Cavalry for Rider/Caster/Assassin (no it doesn't make any sense).

... and the seventh class? I assume also Cavalry cause you said "other"

And that's not like... a dumb translation issue? it doesn't make sense in Japanese either? Fate why. I don't even understand the point of having classifications then lol.

Wait, whoops, Berserker is Cavalry too. Whoops.

I think the words in Japanese are bit more Chess-related? Not 100% sure though.

Fate/Zero episode 4

Fight fight fight fight fight woo

The entire face magic thing is lame I don't like this being a thing tho.

GOD THIS FIGHT THO.

Ufotable continues to give some of the best action. The way the ground is breaking as they plant their feet is just so f***ing good.

Also in retrospect the person in the OP I thought was Waver working with Kiritsugu is prolly actually Maiya, now that I see the OP again, and see her standing there with a gun next to him right before it.

Will the Noble Phantasm thing ever be explained.

Also I feel like the entire "face that charms women thing" should prolly be a way bigger hint to his identity it's being treated as. For someone who seems to want to figure out his identity, I'd be looking at mythology for who that's tied to immediately.

I love Saber's invisible air sword thing. It's not quite as good as the water effects in Demon Slayer, but it's p f***ing close.

Okay a****** professor is indeed Lancer's master.

AND KIRITSUGU CAUGHT AN ASSASSIN. Nicely done.

"then Lancer's Master has the sense to stay out of sight"

Y'all are c***y a******s aren't you. I feel like Irisviel not being the master should be a bit obvious considering dumb she's being about standing in the open, considering the lineage they think she's a master from.

I wonder if one of the other Masters will not escape being known for a bit because of Kirei/Tohsaka assuming Kiritsugu is a Master of anyone but Saber cause they seem to think Irisviel is Saber's. I think that will only really work for mr crazed serial killer tho.

I'm really curious why the hiding your identity as a servant is so important. I don't see an obvious reason it's an issue.

I really like Lancer's personality.

That flash forward to see her plan, followed by it failing because the spear did more damage than she expected was really cool.

"why did the spear pierce my armor"... I feel like it's kinda obvious that's an effect of the Noble Phantasm he's using? Oh she figured it out right after. GJ Saber you aren't as dumb as I feared.

I love that Rider wants to fight them all.

I love how the majority of the people in this show are actually intelligent, in at least some ways. They have their weaknesses and blind spots yes, but none are actually idiots... at least not yet... And Rider going in here fits what I know of him, even tho it isn't the smartest thing.

I get the feeling Lancer and a****** professor aren't that compatible in terms of personality, just based on this argument over not having killed Saber already.

At least Saber is made at herself for not recognizing Lancer sooner. And she's smart enough to cover her sword cause otherwise her being Arthur is obvious. Still not sure why she needs to hide it but whatever.

Rider's entrance was perfect. I love how he isn't even remotely trying to hide his identity. That fits him so well.

his episode was beautiful. I loved it so much. I totally get the love for the show now, based on the quality of this one, and I hope the rest are more like this and less like the earlier ones.
