Oh Iskandar….. where should I get that shirt from?
If I had a chance to grant the Grail to someone, there would not be any one else more worthy of it than Iskandar in my books.
Fuck yeah! Ionian Hetairoi! This was more impressive than I imagined it to be *trembles*.
Assassin’s Status: ☑ Told.
☐ Fucking Told.
☑ King ArTOLD.
Pretty much a talking episode, this somehow still becomes one the best of episodes of the series to date, thanks to the sheer presence of Iskandar and Gil. I fucking loved how Iskandar totally schooled Saber about how distorted her beliefs are, especially in regards to her motions of kingship and her own regrets. Really, this is why I never did like Saber much, even if she is the main heroine of the series. Iskandar sure went straight to the jugular for that.
The icing on top of the cake was definitely the manifestation of Ionian Hetairoi by Iskandar, in front of two of his strongest enemies, to mow down Assassin. Really, what was Kotomine thinking by sending them all to their deaths like that. Well, I guess there’s no use in a hidden knife that’s public knowledge (after Rider finding out) , so sending them all to their deaths was probably a pragmatic decision by Kotomine as well.
Ahh… there’s only two more episodes left. Amazing how fast time flies.
