WARNING: MASSIVE SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
As I have previously mentioned, #12 and #19 are quite confusing (I’m talking about the challenges here). I had to think a lot before I chose. But apparently I finally managed and here it is: to me, the most epic scene this far is Saber killing Caster in Fate/Zero.
This happened in episode 15, titled “Golden Radiance” (「黄金の輝き」). For as long as the video exists, I will not try to describe the scene (this way, unless someone watches it, they won’t get any spoilers…or perhaps less than they would have had they watched it). But I do have to say though, that Saber is absolutely brilliant there; not only is she beautiful, but the music (which Yuki Kajiura-sama took care of for the whole series) and the gorgeous animation (I can’t use proper words to describe the magic that ufotable and Nitroplus did with this series) which accompany the scene, not to mention the moment when Kawasumi Ayako screams ‘EXCALIBUR!’, make this scene be one of the very few which actually give me the shivers. There aren’t many such scenes out there, but this is the one which has the strongest impact on me, as I said, thus far. Of course, there are plenty of scenes where Saber is magnificent – as pretty much always – and there are also quite a few scenes in Boundary of Emptiness which move me to tears, but somehow this one is really special.
And this is it for today! Hope you enjoyed!
