It returns April 7th, yet the intensity of Fate/Zero’s second coming can already be felt as images are now available of both episode 14 and 15 – while the battle against the sadists continues, others fight against themselves.
Saber, Rider, Lancer, and their respective masters continue their bout against the atrocity which has arisen within the city – a monster of the lake with many a tentacle. All the while, Kariya confronts Tokiyomi – intent on bringing freedom to the little girl who otherwise will live a life being raped by bugs and humans alike, Sakura. Interestingly, Kariya’s servant Berserker is spotted – yet this doesn’t appear to be a contest amongst servants for these two.
Kariya bursts into blazing flames as per an unforgiving arcane assault from Tokiyomi – as Kariya’s ultimate goal in the holy war is valiant unlike most, to see him being assaulted by such a cruel black magic trick, being lit ablaze so horribly, we’re left to despite Tokiyomi. No matter the extremity of that attack however, it seems Kariya still managed to survive just enough to take refuge in an alleyway – yet unfortunately, it appears Kotomine Kirei has found him, and he doesn’t seem the type to help others.
We’re left wondering why Berserker will not interfere – it almost looks as if he’s desiring to manifest and aide his master, yet he’s being held back in another realm, place, or time for some reason.
As for the other actions ongoing, it’s worth taking note of Gilgamesh’s few sightings as he always proves intriguing, as well as the frames which feature the effort to take down the tentacle monster. From the sight of it, one can tell it will be quite an extensive, several episode conflict to defeat the squid – specifically take notice of episode 15′s 28th still, it looks as if either a tactics discussion is in progress, or perhaps the threat was eliminated and now it is a conversation of other matters.
Hype for Fate/Zero’s second season was already well above what any metric could measure – yet these screencaps mercilessly send the hype skyrocketing even higher than that.
