Lots of interesting analysis here, and stuff i missed when watching the show the first time, like:

Quote:
In F/Z, it's further implied that Lancelot was actually in love with the female Arturia. Since Arturia had no concept of her own femininity, he tried to get close to the king through her wife, who was just part of the effort to maintain the façade that Arturia was a man.


I kinda feel like an idiot not picking that up at all! I just thought he really admired Arturia as a king.

Fate/Zero is a great show, and i agree that it is absolutely structured as a classic, Shakespearean tragedy, but it did bug me that for a lot of characters, their "tragic flaw" was that they tried to be decent people (Lancer, Berserker's master). At least Urobuchi toned this down a bit when he made Thunderbolt Fantasy, lol.

Why is there so little discussion for this article? Do all the Fate gatekeepers (Fate-keepers) pretend Fate/Zero doesn't exist or something? So weird to see only 3 comments after nearly a week.
