And thus Shirou and Rin became permanent allies in the Holy Grail War. Good action in this week’s episode…makes up for the slower episode last week. Although I enjoy watching Shirou get beaten up as much as the next guy, I can’t believe he managed to get through both of those fights without calling for Saber. I guess now he’ll have little excuse to keep her at home.
So who exactly is going to be next? They’ve indicated both Caster and Rider, but only introduced Rider…so presumably Rider is next (the preview seems to agree), especially given the Master is revealed as someone at the school and is already preparing something (the Master’s identity should be obvious by this point). Unfortunately, this Grail War’s Rider is always going to be inferior to Fate/Zero’s Rider to me, but I guess we’ll see what she can do.
