Fate/Zero (2011) s01e09 Episode Script

Master and Servant

1 Fionn mac Cumhaill, hero of Aillen and leader of the knights of Fianna, and my daughter Gréinne formally announce their engagement.
Everyone, tonight I want you to celebrate! That striking man with the mole beneath his eye What is his name? He is a knight of Fianna, Diarmuid Ua Duibhne.
Diarmuid Traitor.
You will suffer for this, Diarmuid.
Take me with you.
And run! Rejoice, Gréinne Fionn has recognized our marriage! Did you believe I'd forgotten what happened with Gréinne? A dream? 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.
That dream I had That was the legend of Diarmuid.
Were those my Servant's memories? Where am I? I see that you're awake.
Sola-Ui What is the meaning of this? Wh-Why am I here? You have no memory at all of what happened? I I was shot.
I defended myself with the Volumen Hydragram, but What's wrong with my body? Evidence suggests that every Magic Circuit in your body misfired.
It's a miracle you didn't die instantly.
For now, all I've been able to do is to regenerate your organs.
But your Magic Circuits were utterly destroyed.
You'll never use magic again.
I I Don't cry, Kayneth.
It's too soon to give up.
We haven't lost yet.
Sola-Ui If the Holy Grail is truly an omnipotent wish-granting device, healing you should be more than possible for it.
We need only win.
If we succeed and claim the Grail, everything will return to how it was.
With that in mind, Kayneth Give me the Command Seals I'll take over as Lancer's Master, and bring you the Grail.
N-No! You don't believe in me? In me The woman who will marry into the Archibald family? No But Sola-Ui, do you think Lancer would abandon me, to swear fealty to you? I do.
He is a Heroic Spirit, here by the Grail's invitation.
He desires the Grail, just as we do.
Even if he must change Masters, he will accept it, for the sake of his goal.
Sola-Ui! Lancer isn't the fine man you think he is! Why do you say that? When I asked him what he'd wish for, he said, "I have no interest in the Holy Grail.
" A Servant with no desire for the Grail is categorically impossible.
He's hiding something important But no matter what he hides, as long as I bear these Command Seals, he must obey me.
Kayneth I won't give you the Command Seals Kayneth, you still don't understand, do you? You don't understand that we must win, no matter the cost.
Listen, Kayneth.
It is beyond my skills as a spiritual healer to forcibly remove Command Seals once they have been bestowed.
The bearer's willing consent is the sole way for me to take them without resistance.
If you truly cannot accept this, you will leave me no choice but to amputate your right arm.
What will it be? Irisviel? It's all right.
Magical healing puts tremendous stress on the patient.
I think it will take time yet before she wakes up.
Watch her for a while, okay? You're going to report to Kiritsugu? I'm sure he's worried, too.
Irisviel, I have a request.
I'd like you to speak to Kiritsugu for me.
Tell him I feel that we must pursue Caster immediately.
Saber Inaction on our part will mean the deaths of more innocent children.
Kiritsugu? How long before we can use Maiya again? She has to stay in bed for another day or two.
I see.
You and Saber stay here.
I'm going to follow Kayneth.
Wait, Kiritsugu! Did Saber tell you we should go after Caster right away? Apparently so.
Are you angry at Saber for not stopping Lancer? Iri Saving a few children, or even a few dozen, is not our goal.
Saber probably never doubted that Lancer would spare me.
But if Lancer had betrayed her, what would have happened? Our Grail War would have ended right then and there.
There's no need to tell her where I'm going Lancer? Please show yourself.
Mistress Sola-Ui, how fares Kayneth? Not well.
I've done everything I can, but he This isn't your fault It's Kayneth's! All it means is that the Grail War was too much for him.
It's not that, I just Diarmuid, he isn't worthy to be your Master.
Kayneth has abandoned the battle, entrusting me with his rights as your Master! As a knight, my loyalty is pledged to Kayneth.
Mistress Sola-Ui, I cannot consent to that.
Wait As a Servant, do you not manifest physically using my mana? And now I have the Command Seals, as well.
Before I am a Servant, I am first and foremost a knight.
A knight can serve but one lord.
Am I so unworthy of being your Master?! I've told you that is not the issue Look me in the eye when you speak to me! Lancer, fight beside me.
Protect me! Lend me your support.
Win the Holy Grail with me! I cannot.
If Kayneth has given up his battle, then I no longer have any interest in the Grail.
We require a miracle to heal him! Only the Grail can perform that miracle.
If you truly feel responsible for what's happened to him If you desire to give him back his dignity as Lord El-Melloi, then you must win the Holy Grail for your Master! Mistress Sola-Ui, do you speak as Master Kayneth's wife, and seek the Grail only on his behalf? Is that correct? Y-Yes Of course! Will you swear to it? And that you have no other desire? I swear.
As the wife of Kayneth El-Melloi, I shall bring my husband the Grail.
That look in her eyes It is the same as Gréinne had.
I don't hate them for what happened.
However, fate was simply too cruel.
What I seek from this life is the loyalty denied me in my last.
I wish to keep that sad fate from happening once again.
But In my previous life, I threw myself into many battles.
There were times when I had to ignore the lives that would be lost.
That is why I can understand Kiritsugu's reasoning in this matter.
Nevertheless, the Holy Grail War has clear rules.
It is supposed to be a proxy war over the Grail by means of Servants to avoid unnecessary bloodshed.
Is that not the case, Irisviel? If Lancer's Master and Kiritsugu had not engaged in battle in secret, we could have struck down Caster.
We would no longer have to worry about more innocent children being killed.
Lancer and I could have finished our duel in an honorable fashion.
Is there no chance of Kiritsugu changing his mind? If you believe only one thing, Saber, believe this.
For Kiritsugu and me to make our ideal world a reality, you are absolutely essential.
It does a man good to watch you drink Oh, thank you.
You should have told us you had a guest! No, no.
Don't trouble yourself, ma'am.
The simple pleasures of home are what is best.
Oh, you're such a flatterer! We couldn't help but worry over how Waver was doing in school in England, but if he's made friends with a strapping man like you, well, we were worried over nothing! Not at all, it is I who am in his debt.
See? He even picked out these fine pants for me.
So, how long will you be in Japan, Alexei? Oh, I should have my work here wrapped up in a week or so.
If you like, why don't you stay here with us? I'm sure that there's enough space for another futon in Waver's room.
Right, Waver? Futon? Oh, the bedding they sleep on in this land! It takes some getting used to.
It's strange to sleep on the floor instead of in a bed.
That is what is best about foreign lands! My favorite thing in life is the surprise of the unknown! Surely, Asia gives me the most enjoyment in any age! RiQht you are! I told you to take spiritual form when you come and go! Had I done so, I could not have retrieved this.
I even managed to procure this fine pair of pants.
Anyway, boy, it was you who ordered me to do it.
Why must I, the King of Conquerors, go forth to draw water from some country river? Because it's more productive than eating junk food and watching videos.
What's this? Are you playing at being an alchemist? I'm not playing.
I am an alchemist.
What is that? The residue left by spell casting.
It's the remnant of magic, left in the water.
And that means someone was using magic near the river.
If we follow the trail, it may show us where to look.
Boy, did you know ahead of time that something like that was in the water? Of course not.
But this town is unusual, in that water flows straight through its center.
So starting with the water was the obvious choice.
Rider.
Was there anything between here and here? Maybe an irrigation channel or a sewage pipe? Oh! There was one of considerable size.
That's it.
If we follow it, it will probably lead us to Caster's laboratory.
Boy, are you certain you aren't a mage of not inconsiderable skill? A skilled mage wouldn't have to do it this way.
It's probably the simplest imaginable method.
You're making fun of me, aren't you? Not in the least! To accomplish something impressive using a simple method far outshines achieving the same result with a more complex technique! As your Servant, I am proud.
Right, then Once we have his location, he's as good as ours.
Shall we go give him a good beating right away, boy? Just wait a second.
We're talking about engaging Caster here.
- I know that.
- You don't know! When it comes to defending his lair, he has the largest advantage.
What kind of moron would go bursting in? Listen In combat, enemy and ally positions can change by the second.
If you fail to attack the enemy when you know his location, it will be too late for regrets once you've missed your chance.
What's made you so eager today? Why should I not be? My Master has finally contributed something of worth.
As a Servant, I must also do my duty, and bring back the enemy's head! Do not be so quick to give up before we've even begun.
Let us go and see what we find.
It may well work out better than you imagine.
I was right! You see? Everything has worked out! Unfortunately, Caster appears to be away.
Is this some kind of water storage system? Hey, boy I think it would be best if you didn't see this.
What are you talking about? If Caster isn't here, we should at least search for clues to his whereabouts.
That's as may be, but don't do it.
Boy, this is too much for you.
Shut up.
I warned you, didn't I? I told you not to look.
Shut up! Damn it, stop making fun of me.
Damn it This is no time for pride, fool.
Your reaction is perfectly natural.
If I saw someone who could look on this and remain unmoved, I'd punch them.
What do you mean, you'd punch them, you idiot? Right now, you look just fine! That's because now is not the time for emotion.
Because my Master is in mortal peril! Assassin? But that's impossible! Assassin's dead.
We can't afford to be surprised, boy.
H-How? The "how" of it is irrelevant to us now.
However, one thing is certain Anyone who believed in Assassin's demise has been deceived.
They ran Didn't they? Do not let your guard down.
We killed two, and there appeared to be an additional two.
At this rate, who can say how many Assassins there truly are.
This is their preferred terrain.
We should withdraw at once.
Should we really leave this place the way it is? Perhaps you'd find something if you were to look, but let it go.
For now, we'll just have to break what we can.
If nothing else, it will serve to slow Caster down.
With his hideout in ruins, Caster will no longer be able to run and hide.
He'll be forced to come out into the open.
Before too long, we shall put an end to them.
All right, I get it! Quit doing that! Let us be off, boy.
Do not let it trouble you, Kirei.
Indeed, it is unfortunate that Assassin was exposed to them before we could discern the nature of Rider's ultimate weapon.
But from this, we've found out that Rider's Master is a mere third-rate mage.
Had they not been discovered Other options would have become available to you? Yes.
While your plans are certainly important, you must remain refined and relaxed, in all matters.
Dignity is required, even in battle.
But I never thought he'd be so boring a person We will have another chance to see Rider's ultimate attack.
Have Assassin continue to monitor Rider, but to take great care as they do.
Understood, my teacher.
Episode 9: Master and Servant 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.
I used too much mana at once? I'm certain there's something I can do to help! Surely she didn't go to Fuyuki Behold the family magic of the Matous.
We're just about to get the party started.
I can't accomplish anything like this! Next Time: Rin's Big Adventure I can't accomplish anything like this!
