Pre-release imagery is now available for Fate/Zero’s final episode – one image highlighting Saber as she stands witnessing the result of indescribable struggles, the other, Kiritsugu glaring at destruction as it unfolds.
With a fiery orange hue seemingly of a gold tone and origin surrounding Saber all over, she looks to simply be staring onward at something off-screen – whatever it is, one can insinuate from her facial expression her feelings toward it. There’s quite a lot of different sentiments floating in the air, encompassed within the comprehensive decimation – yet Saber looks to be perhaps feeling a slight pity atop of sadness.
Though whatever is formulating on the inside, it also looks that she’s accepting of it regardless – and this makes the situation seem inevitable. Additionally, the more apparent and instantly noticeable facets are also significant of course – noticing the blood streaming from her head, it’s clear there’s been much difficulty overcome to arrive at the current point in which she stands.
Take note of the white smoky wisp in the background as well – it’s blurred to imply motion at an accelerated rate, with the source of it most likely stemming from either a recently executed Noble Phantasm from Saber, or one which is in the works. As there’s already a river of flames engulfing her, then it may be more likely she’s in the process, or just finished, a Noble Phantasm.
Now as for Kiritsugu below, his state seems rather self-explanatory – he stands staring at the salvation which the grail would have given him, though it looks that even by adjusting his plan to have Saber target the grail instead, it didn’t stop the city from facing catastrophe either way. Nonetheless, at least there’s survivors.
