Fate/Zero Ep 12: GILGAMESH IS A DEMON, I SWEAR!!!

Impression:

GILGAMESH IS A DEMON, I SWEAR!!! OKAY, SCRATCH THAT, SATAN, DEVIL- WAIT THAT’S THE SAME THING, BUT YOU GET THE POINT.
HOLY FUCK. JUST, JUST, WHAT WHAT- I DON’T EVEN, WHAT HOW WHAT-
WHHHHHAAAATTT?!

Gilgamesh gave Kirei the psychology lecture about pleasure in which his theory was quickly prooved to be correct that Kirei desires something and the Holy Grail brought him back into the game against his will. This is the first time we’ve seen Kirei display so much emotion. From frustration to anger to horrified, it shows that Kirei does have the emotional side of him, but you need to press the right buttons to have them show up.

The theory I’ve came up with a while ago is starting to become more plausible about Gilgamesh plotting purposely working with Kirei to eliminate his own master Tohsaka. However Kirei must make a choice whether to fight for the Holy Grail and seek the wish that he subconscious desires or remain loyal to his instructor and partner in crime, Tohsaka.

;A; So Irisviel isn’t doing so well. Her body is starting to not function properly and it looks like she won’t have much longer to live. Nuuuuu!!!! We didn’t get much from Saber this episode, but I would figure that it’s during combat that what Rider had said to her may play slow her down, more so- it may involve either struggling or failing to protect Irisviel since she failed to protect her beloved country.

It’s totally badass to hear that Rider’s Noble Phantasm is up to pare with Gilgamesh’s! In fact, I was so pleased that I threw my fist in the air with a big grin on my face! I’m also pleased to see how everyone is concerned about Berserker as well. I swear to god, Archery, Rider and Berserker are definitely the top three servants. Saber- pffth, sorry girl, not this time.

I’m quite relieved that this isn’t the latest episode- looks like MAL was wrong about that. >_>; Anyways next week (the final episode of this season) the whole gang will be back, including Caster. I imagine it’s going to be quite epic and gruesome battle since it’s going to be a banquet or whatever- but definitely not the same as the one they had in the previous episode.

Oh that’s right, one last thing I forgot to mention. I think this place where Saber and Irisviel are at is where Shirou lives in Fate/Stay Night. I can’t exactly tell because my memory is blurry, but also the tall grass tends to get in the way too!

    Well in the mythology, Gilgamesh is 2/3 deity and 1/3 human, so demon I’m not sure, but Of course he ain’t exactly human.
