Fate/Zero Episode 21 Pre-Release Images

May 23, 2012 @ 11:18 CST


Pre-airing imagery of Fate/Zero’s 21st installment show the most cloudiest string of events thus far – in one respect, it’s clear what’s occurred, yet in another, the sight is still obscure enough to be questionable.

Starting with Saber, she rides on her motorbike with a determined expression – meanwhile, the blurred walls of green and tan in the background imply she’s passing through a covered channel. She could be chasing after something more specific, possibly having learned a few more details of the situation and carried on from there – or she could simply still be heading after the escaping figure who kidnapped the wife of her master, an assailant assumed to be Rider.

Now turning towards the first still below, a silhouette of an entity stands in a doorway of a church – pews noticeable off to both sides. Making a presumption, this could either be Kirei, or perhaps it is Kiritsugu having gone after him – yet of course, it could prove to be neither as well.

The pose of the person being quite straightforward, standing tall, and the fact that they merely walked up to the front door, make it hard to think that their identity is that of the tactical Kiritsugu as he’d not be so risky. However, it’s difficult to think why Kirei would return to the church – not that he wouldn’t, yet there’s bound to be an interesting reason if so, and obviously, one would thus like to know.

Waver looks to be happily with Rider, which becomes quite intriguing as when one scrolls to the very final image, it appears that Rider has encountered a light at the end of the tunnel – taking a guess, he’s met Saber, who mistakenly thinks he’s responsible for the theft of a waifu. Seeing that Rider is with Waver, the “Rider” seen last episode seems even more dubious now – and as expected, it’s likely he’s been framed.

Lastly, it looks that while Kirei is having the time of his life, Kiritsugu is mourning sorrowfully at the loss of his general purpose helper – certainly quite a contrast in emotion indeed, it feels almost sadistic.

    Yep, Kirei will definitely be having the time of his life. That scene at the church… Ain’t gonna say much, but it’s one of the scenes I’ve been most anxious to see animated. Having it in the same episode as my favorite battle is such a treat! I’m so looking forward to this Sunday…

      I’m eager to see Kirei enjoying himself – his cruel sense of amusement amuses me.

      • Dusk252 says:

        His “cruel sense of amusement” makes me want to stab him.

          His “cruel sense of amusement” makes me wish I could join his bandwagon with Gilgamesh and we could all go riding around the city.

            Well, I’d welcome you to my hate club anytime then xD (I find them both fascinating and great characters, btw, but they make me rage.)

              I can see where you wouldn’t like them – I’m not particularly fond of Gilgamesh, and I didn’t like Kirei from Fate/Stay Night either.

              His actions are quite despicable, although the thought of Kirei having simply turned on everything and then spending years bothering Tohsaka Rin just because, aside from being horrible, is hilarious to some degree personally.

              Even more so when I think he went from not caring about much anything to this – this was his salvation of all things.
