F/sn 3-4: Saberface

Fate/stay night episodes 3-4 review

Fsn 4

So I get the feeling I’m not going to like Fate/stay night very much. It’s very convoluted. I’d prefer if they’d just say: “here’s the good guy, here’s the bad guy, now watch them fight.” Instead, we have an entire episode set aside to explaining the Holy Grail Wars. Why Shirou (the main character) must win the Holy Grail Wars remains a mystery to me, but “Saber” (the blonde girl who sells millions of figures) is going to fight for him the whole way.

“Saber” is loyal to a fault. In fact, it’s a little disgusting how loyal she is to Shirou. She fights and bleeds for him, without any real reasoning as to why she’s willing to put her life on the line for him besides that she’s apparently his “Servant.” How these things work doesn’t make much sense to me. I’m still lagging behind trying to figure out this series.

I’m not sure if I’m going to like this series all that much, since it’s so confusing. I prefer something on the brain level of Dragon Ball, which requires absolutely zero brain cells to comprehend. This one requires you to completely dive into it, and I’m not sure I can do that.

Episode 3 rating (out of four stars): **1/2

Episode 4 rating: **1/2
