I’m curious how I should approach these posts…I can’t imagine there are that many people watching this series as their first Fate/stay experience. Even watching Fate/Zero gives enough information to figure out the “twist” at the end. That being said, I don’t think there’s too many differences so far…maybe slightly more focus on Rin (not counting the episode 0). Berserker’s appearance should still be the same as the first season, so there still hasn’t really been a split yet. I’m assuming the differences will reside in how they focus their non-battle time, but we’ll see.
Anyway, it looks like next week will be the first real battle for Shirou against Berserker. I always thought Berserker’s pieces in this series were so unfairly cheapened…especially considering his true identity is probably from my favorite set of folklore of all the Servants (he’s not really my favorite character from the folklore, but the set of folklore in general has always been my favorite if that makes any sense). That aside, time to bust out the popcorn for the battle scene…who’s with me?
