|Episode 00 - Prologue|
It shows Tohkasa grab her dad's pendant before heading out to school... the war hasn't started yet, but she noticed nobody else is outside..
Tohsaka: "Listen, Matou-kun... Not only am I not interested in archery, I'm not interested in you."
She goes upstairs and sees the student council president standing outside a classroom, waiting for Emiya to come out with a fixed machine..
"Where's the next one? If it's dead, I can't fix that. Buying a new one would be faster... You're here early, Tohsaka."
Tohsaka thinks to herself as she walks by... "Was that his way of saying hello?"
even the other girls in class give Tohsaka a lot of unwanted attention. some don't trust her.. "When she's smiling, she's at her scariest."
later on the roof she recalls how she found this pendant and some expired magical stuff in a chest in her attic... it messed up all the clocks in the house.
"But it won't help me summon Saber, the most powerful Servant."
back in her fancy expensive looking house... she gets a message from the priest. then does an amazing looking ritual to summon her servant..
Tohsaka when she meets Archer instead of Saber: "Wait, all the clocks in the house were an hour fast today..."
"Seems I've been drawn by quite the unusual little Master."
Tohsaka has to ask him to clarify that he is her servant... he instead asks for proof that she's his master. but it's not the command seal he cares about...
"I wanted to see if you are someon worthy of my loyalty."
"You grudgingly acknowledge me, but you won't listen to my opinions?"
"When fighting, I will call my own shots. Until this Holy Grail War ends, I suggest you sit tight in the cellar or something."
finally Rin gets mad at him and decides to use up one of her command seals to make him more obedient.
he says that her command seal was too vague and didn't work... "Even 100 command seals couldn't compel true, absolute obedience in every word and deed... normally that would be true... But it would seem your skill as a mage is extraordinary."
"Your words now carry a powerful compulsion for me. You are a powerful mage. I was mistaken in looking down on you as a child and trying to keep you from fighting."
"I'd just been summoned, so I wasn't yet fully acclimated. But now we are completely connected. As a mage, you should be able to sense the bond between us through our pact."
in other words... Archer just now started to feel the weight of Rin's magical strength in his summoning ritual, where she even used some of her own blood and her dad's heirloom...
"A Servant is anchored to this world by the mana supplied by his Master."
Later, Archer pisses her off by admitting he forgot which heroic spirit he is... saying her ritual must've been imperfect..
"It's no big deal though. I am a Servant summoned by you. I cannot be anything but the most powerful."
this guy Archer is the first one that has seen Tohsaka's purer side in a long while, as opposed to her usual school persona... in fact, Rin is so informal with him, she even forgot to tell him her name.
when she takes Archer for a tour around the city... he says this panoramic view she showed him at the end should've been the only part of the tour. Then he asks to know what Tohsaka's goals are... Tohsaka says she doesn't really have a goal, despite training her whole life for the sake of the Holy Grail War just because it's her family's purpose.
on the way home, Tohsaka comes across the Servant Gilgamesh, but hides away and doesn't make it clear that she knows who he is, just that he's a suspicious person with Kirei...
on the way to school, Rin is trying to reassure Archer that there are no other mages at least in this part of town... but then she senses a bounded field around the school... although it's third rate if it can be sensed by her... she goes and finds all 7 of the seals that make up this bounded field, and learns about them. this field can be triggered to eat the souls of every non-mage inside it. she tries to disable it, and just then she meets the Servant Lancer... he can see the invisible Archer who is near her.
Their super fast crazy dbz battle is interrupted when they see a human witness running by, and Lancer chases after him to eliminate him... Tohsaka runs off to try to save him, saying that she was always careful not to let anyone witness her magic and be obligated by the mage's association to make her eliminate that person.
Tohsaka cries when she finds out the person who got stabbed by Lancer is Emiya Shirou, friend of Sakura's...
Archer gives Tohsaka back the pendant she used up to save Shirou... but she doesn't know this pendant is actually a different one that Archer himself had...
"Don't lose it again. It isn't suited to anyone but you."
Rin makes Archer take her out again to chase after Lancer, realizing his master would probably find out that Shirou is still alive and want to finish the job... But then they get attacked by a new Servant, Saber... that's where the episode ends.
