Elliot Gay - Fate/Zero Episode 23
"This is one of those long in the making confrontations that for me really elevates just how fantastically well put together Fate/Zero really is. While Berserker's identity is hardly a secret by this point in the series, having him finally unmask himself in front of Saber brings her character arc full circle. There's a lot of hard emotions running when she realizes that she essentially created the monster in front of her. More so than the emotional weight of the battle however, is just how well crafted it is. I've spoken numerous times of how much I love this sequence, but the way that Saber seeks cover behind the car as bullets ricochet off the surrounding area is beautiful in its intensity. In a series filled with amazing battles, this one stands out to me the most."
