|I just thought of this...|
F/SN UBW series really is a great, faithful adaptation of the VN story... it has some new things added, but its storytelling style emulates the VN very well...
F/Z was more like...
Think of this in terms of Ryukishi07-style writing.
F/Z was the "answer arc"...
F/SN is designed to keep you in the dark about a lot of its plot details... mostly showing things from Shirou's perspective and teasing other perspectives once in a while...
but F/Z was more about showing its story from multiple different perspectives, challenging the reader a lot less while still giving them a chance to figure the rest out on their own.
Shinji interrupts Gil and Berserker's battle to complement Gil's noble phantasms.
... the fight continues...
suddenly a flashback to when the holy grail told Illya about how she was betrayed by her father, Kiritsugu... and that she'll be able to kill her brother soon.
"After all, the Greater Grail's flame was not extinguished. The battle ended without resolution, so it will soon resume."
These Einzburn caretakers... "We are all nothing but tools to activate the Holy Grail."
Illy is the ultimate end goal of this holy grail project... "they will never be able to create one that surpasses you."
"If you are defeated, we will no longer have a purpose... The factory called the Einzburns... will abandon their millenial research."
"Even if we cannot be saved, we will finally be freed of our obligations."
Illya: "The Einzburn family... We never had identities of our own!"
The caretakers summoned Hercales for her.. but she doesn't trust that servant at first. Berserker then saves her when she gets attacked by wolves out in the woods..
"You've been protecting me of your own free will, haven't you?"
"Berserker won't lose to the likes of him."
Rin warns Shirou when they notice the fighting inside.. "If you want to save others... save yourself first, and then think about others."
Tohsaka struggles to hold Shirou back, as Gil destroys Berserker and attacks Illya...
a really sad scene...
