Fate/Zero (2011) s01e03 Episode Script

Land of Fuyuki

1 Everything went smoothly.
These games of yours squander my time, Tokiomi.
I am very grateful, Gilgamesh king of all kings, King of Heroes.
Your deeds tonight will establish your prowess as the King of Heroes.
And they will reveal which of our foes we must hunt.
I ask only that you stay your hand for just a short while longer.
Very well.
For the time being, I shall amuse myself with simple reconnaissance.
This age fascinates me.
The modern world is to your liking? It's unspeakably ugly.
But that is fine, in its own way.
The important thing is whether any treasures here are worthy of me.
If there is nothing here that deserves my adoration, you will pay dearly for summoning me, Tokiomi.
Worry not.
The Holy Grail is surely an item fit to please the King of Heroes.
That is for me to determine.
No matter.
I'll play along with your schemes for now.
Everything of value in this world belongs to me.
No matter how precious a treasure this Grail of yours may be, I'll never let anyone have it without my permission.
Tokiomi, I'll leave the details to you.
My, my Honestly I'm still amazed that Gilgamesh materialized within the Archer class, considering their solo combat skills.
Well, I can let Kirei handle things from here.
For now, everything is proceeding according to plan.
Kurikaesu sekai nando te wo nobashitara In this endlessly repeating world, how many times must I reach out Hakanai namida wa kuroi kokoro tokasuno? so that my hopeless tears thaw my black heart? Mebae dashita omoi ga mune ni hibiita nara If these freshly-sprouted feelings are echoed in your own heart, Kimi no tonari de zutto kawarazu mamoru darou I will forever be by your side, protecting you.
Ochita kibou wo hirotte asu ni tsunaide yukeba If I pick up the fallen hopes and fasten them to tomorrow, Karamatta ibitsuna negai datte hodokeru even my tangled, knotted wishes will come unraveled.
Hikari wo kazashite tamerai wo keshita Shielding my eyes from the light, I did away with all my hesitation.
Ageta katta no wa mirai de What I wanted to give you was the future.
Naiteru yoru daita mama nageki wo sakende As I shouted in grief, holding the teary night close.
Fumi ireta ashi wo tooku no risou ga Sotto iyashite yuku Far-off hopes soothe my feet that are weary from walking.
Tashika na kizuna wo tsuyoku nigiri Hold tight to this bond we can count on, Susumou doko made mo and let's keep going as far as we can, Kegare kitta kiseki wo se ni with this tainted miracle on my back.
Assassin was killed? Hey, Rider This is big news! One of the seven has already been knocked out.
Hey Battle of Sky Battle of Sky II The Imperial Army Come on! Don't you get it? Assassin was killed! The Holy Grail War has started! I've been out gathering information, and day after day after day! Every single day! You sit around eating cookies, watching stuff on the VCR! You're worse than a familiar Worse than a rat! And I told you to take spirit form when I don't need you! I'm giving you all the mana you need to do your job.
Kid, no one cares about Assassin.
He's only good at skulking in the shadows.
He could never pose a threat to me.
Anvway, boy Here, this is what matters! This! The big, black thing they call a "B-2.
" It's wonderful! I'm thinking of buying ten or so.
What do you think? With that much money, it'd be faster to just buy the country outright.
Oh I see! So, the question is where to procure the money Were there some major city nearby, such as Persepolis, we could simply plunder it and get what we need.
For the moment, our biggest obstacle will be this "Clinton" guy! He will prove a more formidable opponent than Darius III.
R-Regardless It's good that Assassin was eliminated first.
Aren't you the type who prefers to face his enemy head-on? So it's good news for us that the guy who uses sneak attacks and tricks is out.
We could get some good use from these "Tomahawk" things, too! Saber, Lancer, Archer, the three Great Knights And the Berserker, whose sole skill is to break things.
They're gonna be toast when you use that Noble Phantasm of yours! That just leaves Caster! If we knew his true identity, we- How did Assassin fall? Who was it that defeated him? You saw it, right? I think it was Tohsaka's Servant.
His appearance, his attacks, everything was gold and flashy.
It all happened so fast, I couldn't tell- Fool! If I am to fight someone, it will be the victor! Why weren't you paying attention to him? Well, it matters not.
Did anything else strike you about the flashy gold guy? B-But it was the middle of the night And it was all over in a second.
Hey, Rider Normally, a Servant only has one Noble Phantasm, right? That's the rule.
But "how many" isn't the right way to conceptualize a Noble Phantasm.
As you know, a Noble Phantasm is the physical manifestation of a hero's legend or tale.
Sometimes, it may be a specific ability or method of attack.
Then is there a Noble Phantasm that consists of throwing dozens of swords at an opponent? A sword that splits into infinite copies? It's possible That could still qualify as a single Noble Phantasm.
But those weren't copies.
Each sword had a different shape.
Ah, forget it.
We'll learn each enemy's identity as we encounter them.
I-Is that really wise? It is! Actually, it's more fun this way! Food, sex, sleep, and war Whatever you do, enjoy it to the fullest! That is the secret of life.
Now, let's go find some entertainment outside.
We ride forth, boy! Prepare yourself.
R-Ride forth? To where? Somewhere! Anywhere! Oh, come on You can't have been the only one who was watching Tohsaka.
Which means that news of Assassin's death is making the rounds.
All the others are going to spring into action all at once.
But we shall crush them as we come across them.
Find and crush them It won't be that easy.
I am Rider.
My speed far exceeds that of any other Servant.
Wait! Wait, wait! Not here You'll blow up the house! My Servant has been lost.
I have forfeited my rights as a Master and cannot continue the Holy Grail War.
In accordance with the treaty, I, Kirei Kotomine, ask that the Church grant me sanctuary.
Your request is granted.
In my role as overseer, I, Risei Kotomine, guarantee your safety.
Enter.
Father Isn't anyone watching this church? No! This place has been declared a neutral sanctuary.
The Holy Church will censure any Master who defies the decree.
Then it's safe Yes.
Keep watch, just in case.
Post one guard here at all times, just to be sure.
Yes.
Understood.
Who was watching the battle? I detected the presence of familiars from four separate Masters.
Two days ago, I confirmed the summoning of the final Servant, Caster.
All the Holy Grail War Servants have now arrived.
One unaccounted for, huh? I had hoped that all the Masters were watching.
At this point, observing the three families' estates is a Master's obvious course of action.
If they can't even think to do that, it would never occur to them to worry about us Assassins.
We Heroic Spirits of the shadows shall sneak up behind those Masters who believe Assassin to be dead.
And this time, we shall become true shadow.
The battle has now begun.
At last, it's time for the Fourth Holy Grail War to begin.
These old eyes of mine will finally see a miracle performed.
So, this is where Kiritsugu was born? Well, Saber? How did you enjoy your journey through the sky? It was nothing to speak of.
Far simpler than I'd anticipated.
I suppose flying is nothing to a hero, right? That isn't it.
Upon materialization, Servants receive knowledge of the modern world.
If required, I could even pilot this aircraft.
You could pilot this? My Riding skill allows me to command any beast or vehicle, with the exception of Phantasmal Beasts or Divine Beasts.
Once I put the saddle between my legs and take the reins, intuition does the rest.
Put the saddle between your legs and take the reins Did I say something amusing? No.
Still, you must be the only Servant who has flown in an airplane in physical form.
I apologize for that.
If only I could take spirit form No, I didn't mean it like that.
Don't worry about it.
I never get tired of watching you.
Irisviel, is there something odd about me? No, not at all.
When you laugh like that, there is some hidden meaning behind it.
What is it? I want you to be frank with me.
It means that your being stuck in physical form isn't without its merits.
It's given me many enjoyable hours choosing outfits for you.
Irisviel, is this manner of dress truly common in this era? I chose it to balance out my own outfit.
You don't care for it? No, it is fine.
It is rather easy to move in, and besides, I am used to dressing as a man.
This place is so alive Kiritsugu was set to have arrived here already, yes? Yes.
Twelve hours before us.
But he'll find us.
Don't worry.
For the moment, we'll keep an eye on things so we can act when the time comes.
We've come all this way to Japan.
I'd like to enjoy it before the fighting starts.
That's dangerous.
We should secure a base of operations and then discuss plans with Kiritsugu.
I suppose you're right But it's such a waste.
We've come all this way.
And It's my first time.
Eh? This is the first time I've ventured into the world outside.
Then you've spent your entire life in that castle? Yes, I was a puppet created for the Holy Grail War.
Of course, it isn't as though I'm wholly ignorant of it.
Kiritsugu brought me movies and pictures, and he's taught me all about the outside world.
But this is the first time I've seen it for myself.
So Forgive me.
I got overly excited.
Please stop the car.
Walking through the city will be a new experience for me, as well.
But it is a knight's duty to serve as escort.
I shall do my best.
Come with me.
The equipment you requested has arrived.
The mistress and Saber have arrived, as well.
The other Masters will likely assume that she is Saber's Master.
Understood.
There was an incident last night at the Tohsaka estate.
Here is the footage I recorded.
What do you make of this? It seems too good to be true.
There is insufficient time between Assassin's infiltration and the Tohsaka Servant's attack.
Assassin has a skill that masks his presence, making it highly improbable that he was detected in advance.
I believe Tohsaka was expecting an intruder.
In a battle among Servants, learning their identities is critical.
Why would Tohsaka expose his Servant this way? He had some reason to, I suppose.
Maiya, what became of Assassin's Master? He took refuge in a church last night.
The overseer declared him to be under his protection.
Assassin's Master is Kirei Kotomine.
Maiya, set a familiar to watch the Fuyuki Church.
Are you certain? Masters are forbidden to take action inside the neutral zone around a church.
Place it just far enough away that the priest won't spot it.
Very well.
Understood.
Where is the item I left with you? Right here.
Approximately two seconds, I'd say.
I've slowed down.
Indeed.
Illya weighs less than that Walther.
Even though she's eight years old already Focus on the matter at hand.
Think of nothing else.
It's wonderful, like a mirror that reflects the night sky.
It's fun to walk around a new town, accompanied by a gentleman.
Did I make an acceptable gentleman? You were perfect.
You were a wonderful knight today.
You honor me, Highness.
Saber, do you like the sea? I guess I don't really know.
In my country and in my time, the sea was the source of constant barbarian attacks.
Sometimes, I hated it.
But I never felt any affection for it.
I feel kind of bad.
You're a girl, just as I am, but when you were King Arthur, you never had the luxury of enjoying simple things like this, did you? What of you? Surely, you would have preferred Kiritsugu to escort you, right? He couldn't It would only cause him suffering.
Does Kiritsugu not enjoy the time he spends with you? When he's happy, it causes him pain.
An enemy Servant? Yes.
Making its presence known from the shadows, 100 meters ahead.
It appears to be inviting us to go see it.
How thoughtful.
It wishes to decide on a battlefield.
Shall we take it up on its invitation? I'd like nothing better.
Rider Let's go back down.
Right now! What? This is the perfect vantage point.
I'm climbing down! No, take me back down! I-I can't handle any more of this Calm yourself.
Waiting is a part of war.
I wanna go home.
I wanna go back to England I told you not to be in such a hurry.
See? Things have finally begun to unfold.
This will be fun! Welcome.
I have spent the whole day searching the city.
Everyone simply slinks away, hiding in their little holes.
You alone have accepted my offer.
That pure energy surrounding you You are Saber, I presume? Indeed.
And you are Lancer.
Being unable to honorably name myself to my opponent in combat troubles me.
I dislike these rules.
Saber Be careful.
I can use healing magic to act as support for you.
But more than that Leave Lancer to me.
But it troubles me that the other Master has not shown himself.
Perhaps they plot something.
Watch yourself.
Irisviel, watch my back.
Very well, Saber.
Grant me victory! I will.
Without fail! Episode 3: Fuyuki City Shizuka ni utsuri yuku tooi kioku no naka In my distant, shifting memories, Omoide ni yorisoi nagara kimi wo omoeru nara All I wish is to love you as I snuggle your memory.
Itsumo minareteru madobe ni utsutta Your eyes, which I see reflected in the window so often, Sono hitomi wa ashita wo muite ita were looking out towards the future.
Aa sakaraenu sadame to shittemo Kowaku nai Even if I learn that my fate cannot be changed, I will not be afraid.
Kokoro kara shinji te iru I believe in you from the bottom of my heart.
Shizuka ni utsuri yuku tooi kioku no naka In my distant, shifting memories, Kimi to sugoshita akashi wa tashika ni koko ni aru The proof that we spent time together does exist here.
Afure dasu kimochi wo oshiete kureta kara Because you told me of your feelings that could not be contained, Kono sekai ga nakunatte mo watashi wa soko ni iru even if this world vanishes, I will be with you.
Let's see what you can do, my adorable King of Knights.
Then the tales of the Saber-class magic resistance were accurate.
This man is impressive! That's enough fun for now, Lancer.
What's happening? I'll go Take me with you, damn it!
