Was that bonding I saw this week? I assume Rin and Shirou are officially living together now. Also, I was planning on dumping on Shirou for being so affected by his projection from last week, but Archer’s explanation suggests that it shouldn’t happen the next time, so I will keep it civil for now. Random side note: anyone else chuckle a bit like me when Shirou went on about the “carefree” mage Kiritisugu?

Next week marks the end of this season. Supposedly, it will be an hour long, which means lots of action, right? I’m totally ready. I guess it’s going to be a big showdown against Caster, right? Just like…Fate/Zero’s halfway point. Does the title of “Final Decision” mean that something will be resolved this time or are we headed for the same cliffhanger?

I see Gil is still a fan of his 1-on-1 expositions. That aside, was it really that surprising that Kuzuki was a combat specialist? It makes sense for the person who summoned Caster to be a more front-line specialist…otherwise you have two mages trying to fight at the same time, which never works. Also, Shirou finally summoned Archer’s weapons…it looked like he experienced some sort of backlash after it happened, though, so I guess he’s still as weak as always.

The preview bits at the end really sound like another fight between Archer and Shirou may happen…but I guess that isn’t possible because of the alliance. We’re getting pretty close to the end (which I hear is supposed to be an hour long), which means that we’re probably getting a break at the halfway mark. Anyone else having vivid memories of how Fate/Zero’s first season ended?
