Uchuu Kyoudai has sort set a high benchmark when it comes to premieres this season. The only way you can compete with that is well, do whatever Fate/Zero did.
Unlike the first cour which opted to dump exposition all through the premiere, the second cour starts with the battle between the other servants and Caster who has summoned an immortal Chulthu.
They’ve already lost.
Certainly didn’t expect Tokiomi and Kariya to face off so early into the series. There’s no absolute right in Fate/Zero as Tokiomi states, “Taking responsibility for yourself is the first condition of humanity.” and this statement extends to none other than Kariya. Before one ventures into grandiose illusions of nobility, one should learn how to take responsibility. Is what Kariya sees an illusion? Does one seek compensation after playing hero? These are questions that Fate/Zero touch on during the premiere, accompanied by the noise of ongoing battle.
Stuff you tell people you NTR’d 101.
By the way, can we talk about how Gilgamesh is beyond Tokiomi’s control? Things that could’ve easily been resolved were not simply because Gilgamesh is difficult to work with. Gilgamesh himself might be Tokiomi’s very undoing. Not to mention he’s been going around having secret meetings with Kotomine. Dude, it’s like that movie Moulin Rouge.
On a sadder note,
Good night sweet prince.
They were pretty much the antithesis of every self sacrificing, noble character in this series. I just hope Caster goes out with a bang, because that’s what these characters deserve.
