Plot Summary: This story focuses primarily on the heroine Rin Tohsaka. After her father’s death, Rin enters the Holy Grail War as the sole heir to the prestigious Tohsaka Household, with her servant Archer. But, she soon finds out that Shirou Emiya, a boy from her high school has gotten himself involved in the battles and unexpectedly saves him when he is fatally injured. Before long, Rin sets out to strike down the conspiracies surrounding the Holy Grail War along with Shirou and his summoned servant Saber. And so, the story begins to explore the truth behind Shirou’s powers and the nature behind his unyielding will to become a “hero.”

First (or continuing thoughts): OK, this wasn’t a bad start to the 2nd season as based off the last parts of the final episode of the 1st season that they were going to mess up Saber’s character in there and while she’s in that position (most of you know what it is), it never felt as degrading as I pictured it to be and from what I saw in other shows, this is tame compared to that. Anyway, you still got the good character development between Shiro and Rin and best of all, they managed to still be tolerable and worth caring about. It isn’t much of a downgrade but that episode is still head-scratching but the show itself is still worth watching all the way.

So, yeah, this is CONTINUE on the HIGHEST Priority.

And as usual, this is MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid, saying ‘hey, a good show is back this season’.
