Fate/Zero (2011) s02e07 Episode Script

Return of the Assassin

1 It's you, Kiritsugu.
Ato ichido dake kiseki wa okoru darou A miracle is sure to happen just one more time.
Yasashii koe de egaku yuganda mirai The twisted future described with your gentle voice.
Mou daremo nakanai sekai no tame ni For the sake of a world in which no one will ever cry again, Akaku kegasareta sora no My screams and prayers Doko nimo todokazu kieru sakebi to inori don't reach anywhere in the red-stained sky.
Nagusame wa sutete ikeru I can give up consolation and leave this place.
Kirei na tsuki no hikari ga The pure light of the moon Hajimari he to shizumi yuku sinks down towards the beginning, Sono Kanata he down ever further.
Tozasare teku hitomi de With my closing eyes, Mada tooku he I reach out once again Te wo nobasu far into the distance, Kimi no nageki wo shinji te believing in your grief.
I'm not dreaming, am I? You really came to see me again.
Yes, that's right.
Thank you.
The final thing I must do is return this to you.
From now on, you will be the one who needs Avalon.
When you begin your final battle, I'm sure it will aid you.
You know I really am happy.
To love To be loved.
To have a husband and daughter for nine whole years.
You gave me everything All the happiness in the world that was never meant for me.
I'm sorry.
I wanted to show you more of the outside world.
No It's enough.
If there is still any happiness left to experience, give it all to Ilya.
To your daughter Our beloved Ilya.
Bring Ilya to this country one day.
Show her everything I didn't have the chance to see.
The cherry trees.
The summer clouds I will.
Okay, I'll be back.
Be careful my love.
Saber is heading to Rider's hideout, right? Yes.
She's on her way.
I'm going to kill Tokiomi Tohsaka.
If Rider and Saber fight, there's a good chance Archer will also appear.
I'll hit him there.
You continue to watch Iri.
Um Kiritsugu.
You finally look like you used to.
I don't feel a Servant's presence.
There's no barrier? What's going on? Is that good? Nope.
It's awful.
I guess Japanese cuisine isn't that good after all.
Boy, you walked right by Okonomiyaki Shouki in New Town.
Their modanyaki was a thing of beauty.
Too bad you didn't bring any of that If you want to eat there again, recover enough so you can materialize.
You recognize this spot, right? This is where I summoned you.
This is the Fuyuki location with the leylines that suit you best, right? You should be able to recover much more quickly here.
I'm staying here all day.
Just sleeping, not doing a thing.
So take as much mana as you want, as long as you don't kill me.
Maybe you'll be a little better than now, I guess.
If you'd already figured it out, you should have said something earlier.
Finding out afterwards that someone's been on to you the whole time is, well It's a bit embarrassing.
You idiot! You should have just told me! If you aren't at full strength when I need you, I'll be the one in danger! Why didn't you say anything? I thought maybe I could tough it out a little longer.
But the fatigue from the river battle has hit me harder than I expected.
When it's all said and done, your Noble Phantasm consumes a ton of power.
At first, I didn't notice.
Because it wasn't affecting me, I thought it was incredibly efficient or something.
Rider, honestly, instead of using mana that was supposed to come from me, you managed to use your own stored power, didn't you? And you did it twice What's the big idea, doing that? Well, you know When you get right down to it, as a Servant, I'm a natural soul eater.
If I involve you when I expend mana at my maximum rate, it could put your life at risk.
I'm fine with that This is a battle I began.
If I don't shed blood or make sacrifices, and then win at the end of it all, there's no point.
I just I want to prove myself.
That I That even someone like me can take what he wants with his own two hands! But, kid, that only applies if the Grail truly exists.
You know, I once did something similar.
Fought for something that might not have even existed.
That's right.
I told them I'd show them Oceanus, and they were so swept up by my story that they followed me without a single doubt.
Many died All dreaming of Oceanus until the very end.
When I gained this era's knowledge, that hit me really hard.
I'd had no idea the world was an enclosed circle.
What a bad joke.
But even so, when I saw the map, I had no choice but to accept it.
I've had my fill of letting people die for fairy tales.
If the Grail's existence were certain, I'd have no objection to you risking your life.
But unfortunately, it isn't.
Even so Even so, I I'm your Master! Boy Learned to talk back, have you? It's true, your Magic Circuits are more powerful than usual.
If I rest all day, I should be ready to go another round come nightfall! And? Another round? What do you plan to do next? Hmm Good question.
Let us begin with Saber.
At this rate, how much will you recover by tonight? If I only use the Gordius Wheel for flight, there shouldn't be a problem.
However I fear I'll be able to employ my Ionian Hetairoi only one more time.
I see We should probably save it for the fight with Archer.
Then, Rider Why do you want to fight Saber? I must defeat Saber.
No one else.
As a Heroic Spirit, it is my responsibility.
What's that supposed to mean? If I don't show that silly girl the right path, she'll never learn.
That would be too sad to bear thinking about.
Whatever, have it your way Listen, boy, quit keeping yourself awake and just go to sleep.
Rest is the battle that you face right now.
I am the shunned.
The scorned.
The despised.
Who are you? My name is unworthy of praise.
My body unworthy of envy.
I am the shadow cast by the Heroic Spirit's light.
The darkness born in the shadow of shining legend.
Thus, do I hate.
Thus, do I resent.
I feed on the lamentation of those who sink into the darkness and curse those who shine so brightly.
Her shadow is my shame.
Her honor remains forever unsullied, thus am I forever looked down upon.
You are the sacrifice! Healing won't help me.
I'm going to die soon.
Damn it Really, what a sorry sight you are, Kariya Don't get the wrong idea.
I'm not blaming you.
Honestly, I never would have imagined that you'd last this long.
And so, I shall give you the ace I've kept up my sleeve, secreted away for this stage of the game.
Now It works quickly, doesn't it? The worm I just gave you was the first to feed on Sakura's purity.
How does it feel, Kariya? For an entire year, it's been devouring the girl's life energy.
It's a magnificent mana source.
Now go and fight, Kariya.
Make good use of the life you've stolen from Sakura.
Use every ounce of your flesh and bone to acquire the Grail If someone such as you is even capable of it, that is.
Hey, Maiya Why do you fight for Kiritsugu? Because I have nothing else.
I can't even remember my family or my own name.
Maiya Hisau was the name on the first fake passport that Kiritsugu made for me.
All I remember is that it was a terribly poor country.
The wars never ended even though there was no money to maintain the armies.
But day after day, they continued to kill one another.
And then, someone had an idea.
Rather than conscript and train soldiers, it was cheaper and faster to abduct children and arm them.
Maiya, you Aim at the enemy and pull the trigger.
That was my sole function.
I threw everything else away.
As a human being, I'm dead inside, but the shell continues to move.
Still working like it did before.
That is my life.
But Kiritsugu took me in anyway.
So however he wants to use me is fine by me.
That is the reason I'm here.
In truth, Madam, it was your passion that surprised me.
You've been secluded in the castle where you were born, knowing so little of the outside world.
So I can't imagine why you would fight this hard for Kiritsugu's dream.
To change a world you've never really seen.
I You're right.
I cannot truly understand Kiritsugu's ideals.
It's as you say.
I know nothing of the world that Kiritsugu longs to change.
All my ideals are merely words that I learned from Kiritsugu.
But don't let him know that.
I've always told him he was doing the right thing.
I've told him those ideals were worth giving my life for.
And I've pretended that I understood him.
Then, Madam, have you no wish of your own? A wish? No, I do have one.
I wish for Kiritsugu and Saber to win the Holy Grail.
Do you mean the desire of the Einzberns, attainment of the Third Magic? No.
What I desire is an end to conflict.
If Kiritsugu's wish comes true, and fighting everywhere ends, the fight for the Grail here in Fuyuki should be no exception.
I want this fourth battle to be the final Holy Grail War.
For your daughter? If Kiritsugu and I fail, they will use Ilya next.
That is the destiny that an Einzbern homunculus must bear.
So my wish is to be the last.
If that wish comes true, she'll be able to live out her life as a human being.
Maiya What will you do after Kiritsugu reaches his goal? I don't expect to survive.
Even if I do, there'd be no reason for me to exist.
I'm sure it will be that kind of world once Kiritsugu's changed it.
No, that isn't true.
You think so? You must look for your real name and family! Those aren't things you should forget.
You must learn what they are and etch yourself indelibly into the memories of others.
So live, Maiya.
For me, too.
I'll do my best.
But that isn't until after the battle ends.
Right now, we must be cautious.
We must stay on guard, both he and I.
The one who died was Tokiomi Tohsaka? Really, you are-- Maiya! Iri! By my Command Seal, I order my puppet Saber, return to the storehouse! Immediately! Kiritsugu This is Maiya! Saber? Don't speak.
Follow him outside Rider took Madam But if I leave, you-- I will be fine.
And Kiritsugu will come soon So, hurry.
Maiya, please hold on until Kiritsugu returns.
I shall bring Irisviel back.
I don't believe it, it really was Rider! It was Rider Yes, I understand.
You mustn't cry.
Save those tears for your wife You can't cry here You're weak.
So you can't cry yet.
You can't break I This morning, you finally looked like your old self.
You can't lose your resolve over this Don't worry, Maiya.
Leave the rest to Saber.
Maiya, your task is finished.
