We all knew it was coming at one point or another, he is finally here, the King of Heroes has joined this Holy Grail War. It was clear from the very beginning that Gilgamesh was going to join at one point or another and to be honest, I’m actually surprised he joined so early on. I figured he would appear near the end where the battle has already been pretty much won, instead he’s actually joining so early on that he is assigned to the most useless of Master.
I understand Gilgamesh is the strongest heroic spirit to have ever lived, but it remains that he is only a single person and his life most likely depends on his Master surviving. I understand he was able to survive using Kirei’s mana, but now that he’s been essentially transferred to a new master, wouldn’t this mean losing said master will be his death? Gilgamesh is a funny individual, I feel that obvious, regular rules might not fully apply to him, but still. Having someone so powerful assigned to such a loser makes me cringe a bit. Hopefully Gilgamesh will take control more over the kid. He sure has quite the personality so he might possibly just leach mana and do as he pleases, who really know with this guy.
His arrival does makes things interesting has this Holy Grail War has become even more intense than before. It was already pretty impressive when Berserker and Caster were shown to be nearly invincible, if we add Gilgamesh to the mix we are left with the three knight classes to be the weakest in this war. Saber was one of the strongest heroic spirit last Holy Grail War and now she is amongst the weakest. Granted her master doesn’t help, but there is a sizeable power difference between the good and the bad heroic spirits here. I have a feeling this Holy Grail War will have to focus mainly on killing the masters, the heroic spirit don’t seem to be killable in any way, yet all the masters are stupid little kids. It seems to me like the power disparity between the masters and the servants makes it so someone who would have had a proper Assassin Class servant could have easily won this thing already by now. Maybe one or two Master have enough power to detect an assassin coming their way, I doubt even Rin could have done anything about it.
Speaking of her, I understand she is a tsundere and she has her personality problems, but she is acting ever weirder lately. She was straight up delusional today thinking that Shirou might have a crush on her. She is supposed to be a well trained, psychologically powerful mage, yet she acts worse than anyone her own age as an individual. It is apparent that losing her father affected her emotionally as a child. She needs a real man in her life more than she wants to win this War. It is a trait of her personality that I find to be rather annoying to be honest.
