I Was Very Wrong About Fate/Zero, VERY WRONG.

I honestly wish I were just making this up to make people laugh. With the show having ended this weekend, I thought it’d be mildly amusing to show how wrong my first impressions were. I tend to mock this show a lot, but in truth I just have a lot of tough love in me for Fate/Zero.

  1. Bahahahaah, this post gave me the biggest laugh that I’ve had in a long while from a blog post! I especially love your misinterpretations of Waver’s character. I can see where you’re coming from though, since he does have a feminine build and look ^^

    • Bahahahaah, this post gave me the biggest laugh that I’ve had in a long while from a blog post!
      Then I believe this post has done it’s job!

      God I feel so sorry not for mistaking him as a girl but actually having him romantically involved with Kirei if probably the worst thing.

  2. Waver is such a tomboy. XD Especially love how you got things reversed for Kiritsugu and Kirei. That’s awesome.
    Perhaps you should do this for other upcoming shows. :>

    (BTW, I am sure there is some Kirei X Waver fanart out there somewhere, to help support your Fate/Zero hypothesis.)

    • Come to think of it, I did reverse Kirei and Kiritsugu! Wow. This actually sounds like a good idea.

      If Kirei/Waver fanart doesn’t exist then I just might have to make my own based on this.

  3. Kudos to you for posting this. I’d never reveal my own ridiculous misconceptions (can’t recall any atm, but surely I’ve had some, and I’ll also certainly make more in the future). Makes for a great post, but I believe my flaw will get the better of me should I have an opportunity to write one.

    Waver did get some [b]romance, though not of the foretold kind :D

    • Makes for a great post, but I believe my flaw will get the better of me should I have an opportunity to write one.

      Oh? What kind of flaw would lead to that? :O

      I did enjoy the [b]romance so I guess that’s good enough!

  4. WAAARGH! Mira, now I just love you)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

  5. Ahaha, all pretty understandable misconceptions though!
    I think my first impression of F/Z was Harry Potter-related: I thought Waver looked like Snape and Kayneth like Malfoy. I also remember being annoyed by Rider’s design as an Alexander (and Historie) fan. Funny that he ended up as my favourite character.

    • I’m laughing at the idea of a Harry Potteresque Fate/Zero, but I see the similarities with Snape>>Waver and Kayneth>>Draco. I actually think Gil’s design would’ve fit the image I had of Alexander, but F/Z’s version has such an excellent personality that you can’t help but love him!

  6. Beautiful. Just beautiful.

  7. Ahahahahahaha wow that is just hilarious. Thanks for this, i needed a laugh today. I loved how you assumed kiritsugu was the villain who considers the world beyond salvation, when in reality Kiritsugu’s whole fight is to save the world. and Kiriei “bland and boringly nice[…] only interesting thing will be romance” pffff hahahahaha! Man, this is amazingly funny looking back on it now.

    You really didnt have much expectations for fate/Zero huh? Going by this it seems you thought it would be very shallow.

    P.S. Waver as the “virgin girl” pffff i cant stop laughing XD

    • I’m still laughing at the image of a loving priest in Kotomine.

      You really didnt have much expectations for fate/Zero huh? Going by this it seems you thought it would be very shallow.

      Hmmm, I wouldn’t say I didn’t have high expectations. But I certainly did not expect it to have this level of nihilism in it.

      I’m still sorry about mistaking Waver for a girl and pairing him with Kotomine! How horrifying!

        • Oh this is unexpected (his wife and daughter are very pretty btw). Why did his wife commit suicide (I suspect this is a huge reason as to why he became so detached from the world.)

            ************************************************************
            Defective from birth. The man did everything he could after accepting the fact. He couldn’t understand morals, but had common sense. So his teenage years were spent trying to overcome his defect. But it never happened. The man’s purgatories and sufferings were entirely useless. And his final attempt was a woman.

            It’s a simple story. Every human wishes to love one of the opposite sex, have a family, and die peacefully. Even if one may detest the peace, one can only dream about it. This man is no exception. He wished for such a thing, even though he felt no fascination in it. He loved a woman, trying to earn ordinary happiness.

            The man chose a woman with no future. She was terminally ill, only expected to live for a few years. Did he choose her because of that, or was that his only choice? He still doesn’t know.

            Their life together lasted for about two years. The man tried to love the woman. The woman tried to love the man, did love him, and even had his child. But the result didn’t change. It was because the man derived his happiness from the woman’s suffering and his child’s despair. The more he tried to love, the more their suffering saved him.

            The contradiction didn’t make the man suffer. He doesn’t even know if he suffered. But the more the woman tried to cure him, the more he wanted to see her grieve.

            The woman was a saint. She was sickly, but she was still a saint for him. It need not be said how faithful she was or how deeply she understood his anger. That’s why the man was in despair. No human will ever understand him and try to heal him to her degree. And this woman still could not fill the void within him.

            Then there was no need to live and question right and wrong. He was born defective. His birth was some kind of mistake. He concluded that if his existence was a mistake, it was best to disappear. And he went to bid goodbye to the woman before he died. He made her his wife as an experiment, so it’s his natural duty to go tell her of his end.
            The woman loved Kotomine.
            Kotomine tried to love the woman.
            That’s all there is to this story.

            The end came relatively quickly.

            “I could not love you.”

            That’s all the man said in the room made of stone.
            The dying woman smiled. She was unable to stand up, because her body was now composed of just skin and bone.

            “No. I love you.”

            With a smile, she took her own life.

            There was no way to stop her, and stopping her was meaningless. The woman had a fatal disease. She would eventually die. He knew that when he chose her. The woman, covered in blood, looked up at the man and smiled.

            “See. You’re crying.”

            He wasn’t crying, of course. It’s just that the woman saw it that way. The woman used her death to prove to him that he could love, and that he deserved to live. The man silently left the room and broke away from the teachings of God.

            Yes. He certainly felt sad. But not because she died. The man, at that time, thought…

            ‘How terrible. If she was going to die, I wanted to kill her myself.’

            He grieved over losing the chance to enjoy her death.

            It happened long ago. He can’t remember her voice or her face. But sometimes he thinks,

            ‘I wanted to kill her.’

            Is that for his pleasure, or is it grief over wanting to kill the one he loved with his own hands?

            He cuts off his thought process whenever the answer flickers in his head.
            It’s something that should be hidden forever.
            The woman’s death was meaningless.
            Her devotion couldn’t change him.
            But the man didn’t want to consider her death to be worthless.
            So he stopped searching for answers.

            …It all happened long ago.
            The memory of the man who feeds on others’ misfortunes.
            The man later meets his nemesis.
            Emiya Kiritsugu.
            A magus that cast away what the man might have wanted.
