I was rereading End of a Hero in the VN today and yeah, you're right. As much as I love Zero Lancer, all he does is say gently caress you to Saber and everything else, Lancer just goes an extra mile with gently caress YOU and actually takes everything else down with him.

What I'm saying is that the guy goes down like a true hero. :irelandflagsingletear:

I mean of course he does. Cu Chulainn's legend is that he tied himself to a rock while he was dying so that he could die on his feet, and his enemies didn't even believe it until a raven landed on him. A big part of his legend is going down like a goddamn badass, it would be terrible if that wasn't reflected at all in Fate.

Seriously though Lancer and Fake Assassin are great characters that just get the shortest end of the stick no matter what route they're in.

There's a valid reason why "Being Lancer is suffering" has become such a large meme in the fanbase...

You forgot the best part is that once they thought it was safe one solider approached his dead body and bam his sword arm comes down and cuts off the guy's head.

As far as I remember, no. You can find subs of it easily through Google though.

I think it is indeed like Fate/Zero, i.e. through Aniplex but it was the Japanese release with English subs. For a while one had the privilege of spending something like $400 on a lovely upscaled Blu-ray set on righstuf.

you can preorder the english UBW blu-rays now

20% off even!

that's right, for only $400 you can own all 13 episodes of the first half of UBW, lol

To be fair those are just an import of the JP Blu-Rays, but jesus. I imagine it'll be around the same price as the Fate/Zero ones when the dub finally drops, but that's still 150 bones for like the first half of UBW.

Seeing as you can hear Joji Nakata's dulcet tones in the preview, that seems highly likely.

This one. Where Rin effectively tells Shirou he's not a Master anymore and that he should give up trying to get Saber back.

Nthing about how this was a good episode despite all the talky talk. Taiga going "SHUT UP" was great and the scene between Rin and Shirou conversing in the evening was actually really nice.

Holy poo poo, I thought people were exaggerating about the 400 dollar blu-rays. What in the gently caress is wrong with the people who actually buy those and aren't millionaires? Do they think that a spirit version of Saber will visit them in their sleep and shake their hand if they spend enough money on F/SN products?
