    Fate/Prototype: Fragments of Sky Silver Audio Drama CD - Translations




    I decided to translate Fate/Prototype: Fragments of Sky Silver Audio Drama CD myself because the translations of in youtube is taking way too long.
    Please do be aware that I'm a beginner in Japanese and English is not my mother tongue so there might be some errors in my translation.
    I tried my best to do it as perfectly as possible though... but there's bound to be some errors.

    *Just a quick note on the Title:
    the japanese title is Sougin no Fragments; Sougin literally means Blue-Silver.
    I just chose to translate that as Sky Silver since it's the translation used in the Wiki

    *Also, for the names, I wont put the name of the characters until their names will be revealed



    Volume 1
    Disk 1

    Part 01: Knight of Sky Silver

    ———: (Manaka)
    —Dazzling...
    sincere, proud, and kind
    that smile, gently shining like the morning sun.

    You were compassionate. You loved all that is good and believed in Justice.
    Even though you despised conflict, you were unmatched when you wielded a sword.

    Your shining blade would purge everything wicked and evil from this world.
    ———: (Ayaka)
    A Fairy tale prince...
    There aren't any Princes in reality.
    It's meaningless even if you search for them.
    because reality is far colder —far harsher.
    We were raise being told as such...
    by parents, by teachers...
    ———:
    or maybe by the world itself.
    look, it's so cold and harsh.
    The world is covered in the color of black. Even if you work hard, it only turns gray at best.
    There is no prince on a white horse.
    Those dazzling fairy-tales do not exist anywhere.
    ———:
    but, we knew...
    that a Prince surely existed somewhere in this world.
    That's right, we knew...
    that those fairy-tale-like events defnitely existed somewhere in this world.

    Yes. Indeed
    we knew, that "brightness" ——that you exist in this world...
    ———:
    that you ——that "destiny" exist in this world.
    ———:
    At times distancing... at times coming into contact—
    ———:
    and one day suddenly drawing near—
    ———:
    while cleansing away the darkness of this world.
    ———:
    clad in blue and silver—
    with a shining sword, shining brightly more than anything, held in your hands—
    Both:
    You would come to this place.

    Part 02: Sacred?

    ———: (Saber)
    The dead cannot return.
    That which hath passed is forever lost.
    No matter how great a miracle,
    it may only affect the living.
    The dying world shall be saved once again.

    The Holy City shall appear once more.

    The Kingdom shall judge all.

    And from the hither shore of the roaring waves,

    seven heads and ten crowns shall emerge.

    O’ you which hath sunken deep into sin.

    Thine name is the Enemy.

    Thine pursuits are of avarice.

    Thine praises shall morph into blasphemy and sweep across the land.

    The miracle that nourishes this land shall be the foundation.

    Henceforth I invoke the law of reversed logic,

    and prove the love of our lost lord.

    Part 03: Heroic Spirit Summoning

    ???♂:
    The Magic Circle drawing is complete. That was splendid, Manaka.
    Manaka:
    Is that so?
    It's so easy to the point that it's anticlimatic.
    It would have been better if we might as well have just summoned a guardian that lacks any personality.
    ???♂:
    That would be violating the regulations set by the Holy Church as well as the Mage's Association.
    Manaka:
    Regulations?
    ???♂:
    Hmm... Above all, there's no method to summon the guardian of the counter force itself.
    It's impossible even with you talents, Manaka.
    Manaka:
    Is that so?
    A relic?
    ???♂:
    It's the Catalyst for summoning the strongest Heroic Spirit.
    A necessary thing for our Sajiou Family to reach the Swirl of the Root, the final key.
    Manaka:
    A scabbard, is it?
    ???♂:
    He's a swordsman after all.
    Manaka:
    I see.
    ???♂:
    The Heroic Spirit you shall summon as a Master shall be under the statute of a servant of the Saber Class.
    Begin, Manaka.
    Manaka:
    Yes, Father.
    "The alighted wind becomes a wall."
    "The gates in the four directions close,"
    "coming from the crown, the three-forked road that leads to the kingdom circulate..."
    "Fill. Fill. Fill. Fill. Fill."
    ???♂:
    "Repeat every five times."
    "Simply, shatter once filled."
    ???♂:
    Err... "——I announce."
    "Thy flesh shall serve under me,"

    "and my fate shall be with thy sword."?
    ???♂:
    "Submit to the beckoning of the Holy Grail."
    "Answer, if thou would submit to this will and this truth."
    ???♀:
    "An oath shall be sworn here."
    "I shall attain all virtues of all of Heaven;"

    "I shall have dominion over all evils of all of Hell."
    Manaka:
    "From the Seventh Heaven, attended to by three great words of power,"
    All:
    "come forth from the ring of restraint, protector of the holy balance!"
    Manaka's Father:
    Marvelous!
    The Heroic Spirit manifesting as a servant...
    Materialized in a temporary body made of ether to be observable by the naked eye.
    Saber:
    I am Saber, a knight.
    I ask, art thou my master?
    Manaka:
    Nice to meet you, Saber.
    I am called Manaka, Sajiou Manaka.
    Saber:
    Sajoiu... Manaka...
    Manaka:
    I'll definitely make your wish come true.

    Part 04: Holy Grail War

    Narrator:
    "Holy Grail War"
    That is where Mages kill each other with their wishes at stake.
    Seven Mages who have earned the rank of "Seraphim", and seven servants.
    Heroic Spirits who once met an "Unnatural Death",
    Heroes and great people who have appeared in myths and legends,
    They who have been recorded in human history have acquired a spiritual vessel called "Servant" and were temporarily brought back to the present age.
    And then, with the mages they call "Masters" gather into one land
    to fight severe battles going beyond human intellect,
    and continue killing until the last man standing.
    Magus and Servant
    Together, in order to make their wishes come true with the holy grail.
    Incidentally, in 1991 AD.
    In the old thousand year... Near the end of the millennium,
    In the promised far eastern land, in Tokyo.
    The world's first Holy Grail War in history is about to begin.

    Part 05: As if Similar to ■

    Jinga Seiji:
    The striving of our Jinga Family was not in vain.
    In the Far East which is regarded as new in the world of Magecraft,
    the hundreds of years of history we have piled up was...
    Yes
    It was indead a great thing.
    There's nothing difficult behind the summoning process itself,
    but nevertheless, I accomplished it.
    The very first large—scale magecraft ritual—
    The ticket to join the Holy Grail War revolving around the Holy Grail...
    I have obtained it!
    —These Command Seals,
    and...
    Haha! Hahahaha! Hahahahahahahaha!
    I did it, I did it!
    The materialization of the one and true Ghost Liner!
    Hahahahaha! Ha-Ha-Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
    I... did it!With this, those relatives who keep complaining about the inspection of the Magic Crest will also shut up.
    I'll be able to deal a blow to the Reiroukan as well.
    And those Clocktower lot would also look at me.
    I... Jinga Seiji... Have been chosen
    (The activation of the great Holy Grail. In other words, proof of a miracle.

    Therefore, we'll merely pove the existence of the miracle through the cooperation of you Mages.

    We will not be obstructing you from using the Holy Grail's omnipotence to accomplish your ambitions.)

    The Holy Church...
    I play along with your slogan for now.
    Hahaha!
    Through this Heroic Spirit... no,
    this Servant — I was able to...
    this Legend, an incarnation of mysteries, made into my own familiar!
    I will do it!
    I will slaughter all six human and servant pairs!
    I will find the great Holy Grail that is hidden somewhere here in Tokyo without fail!
    I will take the Holy Grail —the origin which is the ultimate goal for us Mages, all mine!
    ???♀:
    Master...
    Jinga Seiji:
    Hmm?
    ???♀:
    Are you alone here?
    Jinga Seiji:
    Yes.
    I don't need the help of my relatives.
    The true nature of the Holy Grail War is a battle for supremity.
    ???♀:
    Yes.
    Jinga Seiji:
    It's not just this warehouse, I've also purchased the cargo in this whole warehouse to use it in my magecraft processes.
    ???♀:
    Magecraft... processes...
    Jinga Seiji:
    This area of the harbor warehouse is now Jinga Seiji's territory.
    If a magus sets foot in here, I'll slaughter them.
    Even if it's an attacking heroic spirit, I'll turn the tables on him!
    —You and I.
    ???♀:
    Yes.
    Jinga Seiji:
    (Servant, huh...?
    To think that there was someone like this among the heads of the Hashshashin...

    young woman... woman?

    No, she's no mere woman. Heroic Spirits are powerful entities.

    They are Earth's myths and legends far beyond human logic — clusters of mysticism.

    There's no way she's just a... mere... woman...)
    ???♀:
    Master?
    Master?
    Jinga Seiji:
    (What to do?
    She's on her mid or late teens huh?)

    You are... my Servant... right?
    ???♀:
    Yes.
    Jinga Seiji:
    You answered my summons, and came to make my wish come true, right?
    ???♀:
    Yes.
    Jinga Seiji:
    You do recognize me as your Master, your owner...
    Isn't that right?
    ???♀:
    Yes.
    Jinga Seiji:
    I want to know your name, say it.
    Assassin:
    So you do not know my name?
    I'm the one led to the Assassin's name and class.
    Jinga Seiji:
    I see...
    It's hot here, right?
    Assassin:
    I am the Killer of all life.
    Jinga Seiji:
    I see.
    Assassin:
    I'm someone who only knows how to kill,
    even so, is it okay... to serve by your side?
    Jinga Seiji:
    Naturally.
    Assassin:
    Then... my Lord, to you I offer my everything—
    —my name, and my Noble Phantasm.
    Excuse me.
    Jinga Seiji:
    Why... did you push me down?
    Assassin:
    No, I simply hugged you.
    Jinga Seiji:
    Why?
    Assassin:
    Because, you are my Lord.
    Jinga Seiji:
    (I desire this woman.
    No, she's already mine the moment I succeeded summoning.
    She is to walk beside me towards my ambition.
    ...What was my ambition again?
    No, more importantly right now...
    I just want to kiss her...!)

    You are...
    Assassin:
    Uhmmm!
    Jinga Seiji:
    Uhgggg!
    Assassin:
    Uhm—haaaa!
    Jinga Seiji:
    Uhg! hmmm!
    (Such a hot... Kiss...

    So this is what a kiss is...!?

    So hot, and so sweet! Soft...

    My thoughts and consciousness are fading.)

    mmmhhhmmmmm....
    (Ambition... Desire... Family... Mages Association...

    Holy Church... Great Holy Grail War... ————... Heroic Spirit Summoning... Noble Phantasm...)

    nngg... ngggghhhuuuhh... aaanggghhhuuu... ggwahhhh... aaaaaaarrrrrrggggggghhhh!
    Assassin:
    True Name —Hassan-i-Sabbah
    Noble Phantasm: Zabaniya (Delusional Poison Body)
    My whole body is a mass of poison
    Nails, skin, flesh, bodily fluids...
    My entirety is poison.
    My entirety is blade.
    My entirety is death.
    A poison in the form of a woman.
    In other words, Death.
    Farewell, Jinga Seiji.
    You weren't the one either.

    Part 06: Just like a friend I

    ???♂:
    uh-eh? waaaaaahhhhhh?
    W-Where did you pop out from!?
    Why are you shining!?
    ???♂:
    Shhhh
    ???♂:
    Huh? Stay quiet?
    ???♂:
    Yeah.
    ???♂:
    "Yeah"? You...
    ???♂:
    It's alright.
    ???♂:
    What is?
    ???♂:
    I'm of no danger to you.
    ???♂:
    I-Is that so...?
    ???♂:
    That's right.
    ???♂:
    Wait, just wait a bit...
    just wait there.
    (That golden hair and blue eyes, he's a foreigner, isn't he?

    Why was he in my appartment?

    The notes... incantations-like thing in grandpa's memopad... nah, it can't be related, right?

    Ah, maybe I was making so much noise inside that the neighbor came to complain.

    No, but he was shining...)
    ???♂:
    What are you doing?
    ???♂:
    For now, let's have tea.
    You'll drink too, right?

    Part 07: Just like a friend II

    ???♂:
    A box of iron huh?
    ???♀:
    Car.
    ???♂:
    Y-Yeah, a car.
    I know that in my head, but...
    ???♀:
    That car wasn't used very much though.
    Huh?
    This is weird, it seems like the city lights are all out too.
    I heard that Tokyo was a sleepless town, so this is weird;
    or is it that Akihabara is different?
    ???♂:
    Who knows?
    The grail didn't give me knowledge regarding that kind of thing.
    ???♀:
    It probably isn't under martial law, either.
    ???♂:
    Hey, hey, this city is peaceful, you know? see?
    It is peaceful in every sense of the word.
    Oh, it came again!
    A box of iron.
    ???♀:
    Car. It's a car, Archer.
    Archer:
    Haha, yeah, that.
    ???♀:
    I was planning to introduce to you the battlefield... by merely strolling around Tokyo at night,
    But it seems like it's no good now, huh?
    Archer:
    That's not completely true, Master.
    It's a good town, many people live in it, yet most of them aren't starving.
    Though the air may be a bit polluted, there is no smell of blood.
    ???♀:
    That's... true.
    Archer:
    Right?
    It's not exactly a perfect score, but maybe because I got summoned under the starry sky.
    It's thanks to you, Elza.
    The first impression I got from this city was almost the best, It's a good place.
    Elza:
    I'm sorry. As I thought, using the hotel rooftop as the summoning location was a bit too much.
    Archer:
    It was not bad. I love stars.
    Even if the sky is smoky, the stars are still stars.
    Elza:
    Yeah.
    Archer:
    You wanted to walk around at night while being under the stars like this didn't you?
    That's nice. I like that.
    I died a long time ago in the past... well, it's not like I completely came back to life, though.
    But anyway, even though I materialized like this, I already got to experience something good!
    Thank you, Elza.
    You are a good master.
    Elza:
    For mages to use Heroic Spirits as familiars... this must be a first.
    That's why I think it's hard to decide whether I'm a good master or a bad master.
    There's no comparison target after all.
    But, thank you, Archer.
    I'm sure you are also the best Servant.
    Archer:
    You bet! I'm a great hero after all!
    I'll be your strength, Master.
    Elza:
    I'm counting on you.
    Archer:
    Yeah, Leave it to me.

    Part 08: Just like a friend III

    ???♂:
    So... uhh...
    ???♂:
    Yeah.
    ???♂:
    Because I read that... incantation thingy from grandpa's notes...
    —a supposedly impossible supernatural phenomenon occured?
    ???♂:
    Yeah.
    ???♂:
    And then, you appeard on my apartment?
    ???♂:
    That is so.
    ???♂:
    And so... Berserker?
    Jeckyll? Hyde?
    How should I call you?
    Jeckyll:
    Berserker. I don't mind you calling me that.
    ???♂:
    I see.
    (But, he sure doesn't feel like a mad warrior... like a berserker, does he?

    An old warrior of a kingdom, was it?)
    Jeckyll:
    My True Name is something you should avoid speaking.
    We don't know where the other Mages could be listening from after all.
    Whether you wish for it or not, hiding my true identity is also for you own well-being.
    ???♂:
    Is that how it is?
    Jeckyll:
    That's right.
    ???♂:
    If you're having a hard time sitting like that, you can just sit normally you know.
    Jeckyll:
    Thank you. But I'm fine like this.
    ???♂:
    Well if that's so...
    (He's polite... that isn't just empty words from elaborate thinking, right?

    Entering the apartment of a high school student living alone, without even stealing nything... and also...)
    Jeckyll:
    What is it?
    ???♂:
    Nah...
    (He has a good appearance...

    His True Name —Jekyll... or Hy-Hyde, was it?

    It's the name of a protagonist of an old foreign novel.

    A brilliant scholar, with a special medicine to enhance the rampaging of the Villain inside of him...

    or something like that?

    The scholar's name was Jekyll.

    The villain that manifests through the medicine is Hyde.

    lies... I guess not?)
    Jeckyll:
    Hmm?
    ???♂:
    Your current name is your real name,
    while the other one... is an alias?
    Jeckyll:
    They're both my real name.
    ???♂:
    Is that so?
    You... Berserker,
    please answer my question honestly.
    Jeckyll:
    What is it?
    ???♂:
    You're not human... are you?
    Jeckyll:
    I'm not.
    ???♂:
    Uhm?
    Jeckyll:
    As expected, you have a really good eye, Tatsumi.
    Tatsumi:
    Eh? Eyes?
    Jeckyll:
    As you suspected, I am not a human.
    I am one who will fight beside you for the Holy Grail
    —A servant.
    Tatsumi:
    Holy Grail...
    Heroic Spirits...
    Magus...
    Then, my right eye is?
    Jeckyll:
    Most likely a thaumaturgical article... Mystic Eyes.
    Tatsumi:
    Mystic Eyes.
    Jeckyll:
    Did something strange ever happen while looking at something?
    Tatsumi:
    Uhmm... I don't think so.
    Jeckyll:
    There must be something.
    Tatsumi:
    Even if you say that...
    Ah! When I go bird watching,
    The birds stop longer for me than other people.
    Jeckyll:
    Mystic Eyes of Restraint
    It's a powerful one.
    Tatsumi:
    I-Is that so?
    Jeckyll:
    Yeah. Perhaps, from your father side or mother side...
    They're most likely a branch of a Mage family or something.
    Tatsumi:
    It's most likely my grandpa from my mother side.
    Like those incantations...
    Jeckyll:
    As there's no record of it,
    that past was now probably made nonexistent.
    As for Tatsumi's case,
    it may be a form of atavism.
    Tatsumi:
    Hmm...
    Jeckyll:
    Tatsumi?
    Tatsumi:
    Berserker, are you decieving me?
    Jeckyll:
    I'm not.
    Tatsumi:
    Yeah... you don't look like the type that would lie.
    Then that means, that talk about the Holy Grail War and Masters...
    Jeckyll:
    It's all truth.
    Tatsumi:
    The Holy Grail War...
    It's starting in Tokyo, right?
    Jeckyll:
    That's right... No, more accurately, it has already started.
    Tatsumi:
    I see.
    (To be honest, I can't grasp half of it...

    World of Magecraft? Holy Grail? Heroic Spirits?

    Magus? —I am?

    If it's years ago, around elementary or middle school,

    I would believe it immediately...

    but this is definitely hard to believe.

    Though even if I said that, his words... I'll listen properly.

    Not because he suddenly appeared out of nothing.

    It could just be a trick or something.

    It's probably my eye, huh?

    My deceased grandpa used to say, it's a beautiful gaze.)

    Part 09: Calm Morning I

    ???♂:
    It's already morning.
    The alarm clock hasn't rung yet.
    The clock...
    1991, Febuary... 6:14
    ... perfect.
    Clothes.
    Alright
    My hair, my hair.
    (If I have to cook, I should wake-up more early.)

    I wonder if father woke up already.
    oh, my breath turns white.
    cold!
    Ah, I should have used hairpins on my bangs.
    Don't make a weird face, Ayaka.
    Eh? Such a good smell.
    (Bacon and eggs?)

    I reached the garden.
    I wonder why it's called "Garden".
    Did mother name it?
    Good morning!
    Hmm?
    Father?
    Not you guys.
    Today is not a day-off from studying is it?
    Hmm? Did father say something last night?
    "Something will start soon" was it?
    Uhmm...
    Mr. Sajiou:
    Haven't I told you not to talk to the pigeons, Ayaka?
    Ayaka:
    Father!
    Mr. Sajiou:
    Don't talk to the sacrifices.
    We absolutely must not have sympathy with the sacrifices.
    Sympathy will give birth to hesitation and make your dark arts go astray.
    Haven't I already told you many times?
    Ayaka:
    Yes.
    Mr. Sajiou:
    Pigeons and humans cannot exchange words. They can't.
    Normally, humans wouldn't feel sympathy towards them but...
    since you are still a child, you could easily feel sympathy for them.
    Ayaka:
    ...
    Mr. Sajiou:
    This is for your sake, Ayaka.
    We cannot separate dark arts and sacrifices.
    The use of sacrifices is the source of power for dark arts.
    Ayaka:
    I'll do my best.
    Sacrifice...
    Mr. Sajiou:
    No, you don't need to do it today.
    Go to the dining room.
    Ayaka:
    Eh?
    Mr. Sajiou:
    It's breakfast time, accompany manaka this time.
    Ayaka:
    ...
    Mr. Sajiou:
    Manaka said she wants to have breakfast.
    Please, accompany her.
    Ayaka:
    Sis?
    Mr. Sajiou:
    I think it's better you than me.
    Ayaka:
    ...
    (Earlier than usual)

    Is sis hungry?
    Mr. Sajiou:
    It seems that she wants to try cooking.
    Ayaka:
    Cook? Sis said that?
    Mr. Sajiou:
    Yes.
    Ayaka:
    I see.
    —————————————————————————————————————————
    Manaka:
    Ayaka, can you bring me that plate? The toast too.
    Ayaka:
    Okay, sis.
    Manaka:
    Ah, not that one, the smaller one for bacon and eggs...
    you know, just like the one you broke before.
    Also, for the toast it's thin cut, not the thick one.
    Ayaka:
    O-Oh, Hm!
    (Sis is amazing.

    She's cute... no, she's pretty.

    She's also smart.

    She can do anything.

    Just like now,

    in the kitchen, briskly, yet elegantly.

    There are times when father is busy and sis cooks in the kitchen,

    but not like this time. It's more like because it was needed.

    She wasn't cooking briskly like a chef back then.

    And not like before, this time she looks beautiful like our mother from father's stories.

    It's different from back then.

    That time she was also amazing, but...

    I wonder why?

    She's amazing but... in a different sense...

    with this amount she prepared, it's noticable at a glance that she's different.

    Before, she would only prepare bacon & eggs, toast, salad, and milk.

    Now there's bacon, eggs, toast, salad, milk, kidney pie, fish and chips,
    ham and cheese, porridge, scone, tea, and sliced peach and plums for dessert.)
    That's a lot.
    (More amount than we could consume.

    Each of these were prepare skillfully by sis

    Even just but looking at kitchen knife held in her fingers, makes me so amazed.

    even though we're only 3 years apart.

    Why does she seem this pretty?)

    Here's the plate.
    Manaka:
    Thank you, Ayaka.
    ehehe
    What's with that idle gaze?
    Ayaka:
    Nothing.
    Manaka:
    Really?
    Ayaka:
    (My pretty sis Manaka...
    In the kitchen wearing a white apron,

    Sis is moving around, dancing like a princess,

    Making a lot of food, she seem to be happy, having fun.

    I don't remember mom's face, but... she probably looked like this back when she was alive)
    Manaka:
    Hmm-h-hmmmm
    Ayaka:
    (She's like the sun shining through the windows, sparkling
    She's always been like that, but I wonder why?

    This morning, she's even more pretty and radiant)
    Manaka:
    Books say that englishmen love to eat cod...
    though I'm not sure if it's the same for the british.
    Ayaka:
    (When was the last time I saw sis smiling like this?
    My sis who can do anything.

    Be it studying or dark arts... she can do anything.

    She won't even hesitate to cut a pidgeon or a cat, unlike me.)
    Manaka:
    Hey, do you want to taste the fried fish Ayaka?
    Ayaka:
    Uhm, is it okay?
    Manaka:
    Yes.
    Here, say ahhh...
    Ayaka:
    Ahhh...
    Manaka:
    How is it?
    Ayaka:
    Uhn, delicious.
    Manaka:
    Seems that the sour cream and the charm worked nicely.
    Alright, if Ayaka likes it...
    Ayaka:
    Charm?
    Manaka:
    The charm that makes dishes delicious.
    It is secret and much more powerful than magecraft.
    Father:
    Ehem...
    It's nothing.
    Ayaka:
    Uhmm, more amazing than magecraft...? uhm...
    Manaka:
    What is it?
    Ayaka:
    Father said there's only one thing more amazing than Magecraft.
    Manaka:
    That's true. That's why I used it.
    Love Magic!
    Ayaka:
    Love?
    Manaka:
    You might still be too young for it, Ayaka.
    Love Magic, you see...
    It is more powerful than any mystery a magus could use.

    Part 10: Ruler of Psyche

    ???♂:
    After the summoning ritual... a delay of five minutes before manifestation.
    Lancer:
    Lancer, answering your summons.
    Thou art my Master, correct?
    Nigel Sayward:
    I am called Nigel Sayward.
    Lancer:
    I appreciate thy favor, Master Sayward.
    Nigel Sayward:
    Hn.
    Lancer:
    These are?
    Nigel Sayward:
    Take off your armor.
    Remove your clothes.
    Lancer:
    ...?
    Nigel Sayward:
    The summoning's binding seems to have a little error, but...
    You are unmistakably a jackpot for me.
    Therefore I say, undress yourself.
    Lancer:
    May I ask why?
    Nigel Sayward:
    Your body of ether has its smell.
    Take a shower first and wash off that primeval stench.
    Lancer:
    Shower?
    Nigel Sayward:
    Yeah.
    To you, I shall use my special elixir.
    For that reason, you are a Heroic Spirit, a weapon, and at the same time a woman.
    That is you, my servant.
    You are a mystical weapon as well as...
    —a woman.
    We shall win this Holy Grail War.
    Lancer:
    I see... then...
    Nigel Sayward:
    You disapprove?
    Lancer:
    Yes.
    Nigel Sayward:
    That so?
    Then, before I use a command seal,
    you can just cut me down anytime.
    It's up to you.
    Lancer:
    The shower is... which way?
    Nigel Sayward:
    That way.
    ————————————————————————————————————————————————
    Lancer:
    Water... hmm... This is hot water isn't it?
    Twist the faucet, and hot water flows.
    Circa 1991 A.D.
    Holy Grail...
    Sigurd...
    I... why did I manifest here?
    ???♂:
    Yes?
    Nigel Sayward:
    It's me.
    ???♂:
    Mister Nigel Sayward?
    I was waiting for your call.
    I heard that esteemed mages like you were bad with modern technology.
    I wonder why?
    Nigel Sayward:
    Summoning succeeded.
    ???♂:
    Congratulations.
    Nigel Sayward:
    I will send the details over to you promptly.
    ???♂:
    Fax right?
    PC communication is possible here though.
    Nigel Sayward:
    I'll send a familliar.
    ???♂:
    Well then, I will also inform the president.
    Do you wish for me to pass her a message?
    Nigel Sayward:
    Ah yeah,
    Heroic Spirits... servants are insanely beautiful.
    If you are aiming for one,
    Make sure to take away their souls.
    ???♂:
    Unerringly, I shall pass that on.
    Well then.
    Nigel Sayward:
    Yeah.
    Amethyst eyes, Mythril armor...
    My servant being like that...
    hmm... she's too well done.

    Part 11: Calm Morning II

    Manaka:
    Here you go. Eat up.
    Saber:
    Thank you!
    Your father... and you also have a sister don't you?
    Where are...
    Manaka:
    They had already finished and went somewhere else.
    So then... uhm... well...
    I didn't know what were your preferences, so...
    I just made anything that came to mind.
    I may have made too much however...
    Saber:
    No, I will gladly partake all these.
    Manaka:
    You don't have to force yourself you know.
    Just eat what you want... if you eat it...
    (I made portions for about six people!

    Was I too enthusiastic?

    Poached eggs along with toast —for six;

    there's also lots of leafy greens;

    salad —for six;

    baked mushrooms and sausage —for six;

    one whole kidney pie and milk porridge —for six people;

    fish and chips —amounts to mountains high;

    peach and plum desert, so plenty;

    scones and cream in the cake stand... excessively!

    Why did even I make so much?)
    Saber:
    If it's about the amount, there's no problem.
    Manaka:
    But...
    Saber:
    Meals are the vitality of knights who head into the battlefield.
    Having this much is not a problem.
    Manaka:
    huh?
    Saber:
    It's not a lie.
    With my pride and sword at stake, I shall recieve everything you offered me, Manaka.
    Manaka:
    Saber!
    Saber:
    Wow! That's delicious.
    Manaka:
    Really?
    Saber:
    Yeah!
    Delicious!
    Manaka:
    Uhn! Thank goodness!
    You know, I had confidence in that deep-fried fish with sour cream.
    Because I was told it's delicious by the oil-hating Ayaka, I thought that this definitely...
    Saber:
    Uhn, it has a wonderful taste.
    Manaka:
    I am glad it was to your liking.
    This morning I studied the modern... no, more accurately, the 19th century to 20th century english breakfast.
    I thought that you would definitely prefer flavors closer to your home country.
    Saber:
    Yeah, it's delicious.
    Manaka:
    Really?
    Saber:
    Yeah.
    Manaka:
    Really, really?
    Saber:
    Yes, my lady.
    I think your cooking is very delicious.
    Manaka:
    I'm glad!
    Hey, Saber.
    Saber:
    What is it?
    Manaka:
    I realized something this morning...
    no, I'm sure I knew it from the beginning.
    Yes. "It" is the same as cooking.
    Saber:
    Hmmm?
    Manaka:
    The method of the Holy Grail War.
    Cooking and Holy Grail War, I realized it's both similar.
    It takes time and effort, so you might as well use your head.
    Cooking takes a lot of time, but using different heating tools would make it a lot easier right?
    Tools like pressure cooker and microwave ovens should not be made light of.
    Also, preparations are important right?
    Making the right preparations in order to reach your objectives... I think it's a very important thing.
    Saber:
    Mmm.
    Manaka:
    Each servant is definitely powerful, so aiming for the masters is definitely more effective.
    In addition, if the master has some sort of weakness, then aiming for that would be the most efficient.
    So why don't we kidnap their children, or maybe even murder?
    Saber:
    Manaka.
    Manaka:
    Hmm?
    Saber:
    When heading into battle,
    what you need is courage.
    Perhaps, you already have it.
    However, we should not involve those who are unrelated.
    Even more so if it's the children... the powerless.
    Manaka:
    It is for your sake, Saber.
    Saber:
    For me?
    Manaka:
    Yes.
    So that you would not get hurt.
    In a fight between servants, I am sure that you would not lose but...
    still, If you got hurt in the fight, I could not handle that.
    And you know...
    Saber:
    Manaka!
    Don't just show your skin like...
    Manaka:
    I absolutely don't want... to use this.
    Saber:
    Black wings tatoo?
    That thing engraved on your chest, thats...
    Manaka:
    Yeah.
    Saber:
    Seraphim, The command seal of seven feathers.
    Manaka:
    This, is my bond to you, that's why... I don't want to use even one.
    Right now, this is my only definite connection with you.

    Narrator:
    Command Seals,
    reform of angels.
    It is, the key to managing the ultimate power to bid all life.
    In the Holy Grail War, seven Mages are given powerful unparalleled weapons.
    Seven people and seven Heroic spirits.
    Each Mages with one angel's reform each.
    We call this, a Servant.
    Something beyond thaumaturgical mysteries; The strongest delusion of people's dreams.
    Even against modern weaponry, they will not fall short.
    Originally, it is not something even a master of mystical arts couldn't handle.
    Having their names engraved in history, becoming legends —They are proxies of great heroes.
    With the great prana brought forth by the Holy Grail, for the first time, their summoning...
    or in other words manifestation of the strongest unrivaled existence.
    These Heroic Spirits are great and fierce.
    In most cases they take a human form, but in actuality —they are not humans.
    Therefore, engraved in the bodies of the mages —Command Seals,
    to control the existences that go beyond the power of thaumaturgy unsing the authority of the Holy Grail.
    Total of three seals. In other words, ability to bind heroic spirits three times, or seals that give authority.
    Without these, the holy grail war could not be established.
    Excerpt from one old note.
    —————————————————————————————————————————————————— —————————————
    Saber:
    Efficiency... —you said.
    Manaka:
    Yeah.
    Saber:
    Last night, Immediately after summoning,
    I heard you talk about expected enemies for this Holy Grail War;
    the possible other masters.
    Manaka:
    I did.
    Saber:
    A prestigous mage family, Reiroukan.
    The current head is known to be one of the masters.
    Manaka:
    That's true.
    Saber:
    Furthermore, the head's daughter is the same age as you, and your aquaintance.
    Manaka:
    I only saw her from a distance in the past. I don't think she'd even remember that.
    But I do think that we're kind of like friends.
    Saber:
    Aim for the master's child —you said...
    I don't want you to do something such as hurting your own friend.
    Manaka:
    You sure are kind, Saber.
    Saber:
    Manaka!
    Manaka:
    But it's okay.
    There's no need to worry.
    Saber:
    People make mistakes, however you are intelligent.
    Without making wrong choices, I'm sure you can get your wish upon the Holy Grail.
    Manaka:
    Yeah, I can do anything for your sake.
    Saber:
    Wronging other people... is not a good thing, Manaka.
    Manaka:
    Why?
    Saber:
    For Example, The family you spend your morning hours with,
    your father and your little sister, it's the same as hurting them.
    I'm sure that the Reiroukan master would...
    Manaka:
    —why do you say such things?
    I have decided you give the Holy Grail to you.
    I will make your wish come true.
    So that you could save Britain.
    Saber:
    ...
    Manaka:
    For that, I can do anything; I'll do anything.

    Part 12: Prosit!

    Elza:
    Prosit!
    Archer:
    Yeah!
    Ahh!
    Japanese alcohol is also quite interesting.
    This feeling going through my throat...
    Ahhh! That's nice!
    Elza:
    Pilsner bear originated in Europe, not Japan.
    Also, what you felt, we call that "nodogoshi".
    Remember that.
    Archer:
    Is that so?
    It's a nice nodogoshi.
    Kuhaa—— ha ha ha
    Oi miss, here... uhm...
    Elza:
    Large mug of beer
    Archer:
    One large mug of beer please.
    Elza:
    Hey, wait —wait!
    Puha——
    Make that two!
    Waitress:
    Ah, yes!
    Master, two large mugs of beer for the people over that table please!
    Bar owner:
    Already!? What an energetic couple!
    Elza:
    Hehe, heard that? he called us a couple.
    Archer:
    Sure you're not mistaken?
    Elza:
    Eh? Uhm... If it's a Japanese context... well whatever.
    Waitress:
    Two large mugs of beer.
    Elza:
    Thank you!
    Archer:
    This really is a big city, huh?
    The buildings are huge, and the population is huge.
    It's normal that there aren't much people at night, but it would probably be full of people during daytime.
    Elza:
    It's a matter of preference yeah?
    Archer:
    The capital of Turan pales in comparison.
    It's a good city.
    And it's interesting.
    Transportation using an iron box for the first time surprised me, but getting used to it, it feels quite nice.
    Besides, there's that.
    Elza:
    That?
    Archer:
    The Iron Dragon.
    Elza:
    You mean a train?
    Archer:
    Yeah yeah, that is good too.
    The train station is like the dragon's nest.
    Elza:
    Hehehe. What funny expressions.
    But no one would ever go to a dragon's nest, would they?
    Archer:
    Hehe that's true.
    That evil dragon that raged on the reign of king Fereydun,
    —compared to Aži Dahāka, the current iron dragon seems really peaceful.
    It would let you in into its belly and spit you out without digestion.
    Elza:
    That's right. Trains don't eat people.
    Hmmm! Delicious!
    Oh yeah, It's probably a special characteristic of Tokyo to have plenty of routes below and above ground.
    Archer:
    Is it different for your country?
    Elza:
    It might vary by city.
    We have Stadtbahn, but they're probably not as automated as those here.
    But I was a little disappointed here in Akihabara.
    Archer:
    Really?
    Elza:
    Really! It's quite a large station, but there's a few too little restaurants nearby.
    Archer:
    Hmm that's true.
    Elza:
    It might be on the opposite side of the station, but...
    I was walking here last night and this is still the same area, you know?
    Even though there are a lot of duty free appliance stores that might as well shut down at night, there's barely any kind of beer halls at all.
    Archer:
    Hmm
    Elza:
    Well I'm not saying they should have a hofbrau but...
    Archer:
    Well it doesn't really matter now, right? We eventually found a bar after all.
    Elza:
    That's true.
    Archer:
    Beer tastes good, and nodogoshi is good too.
    Elza:
    And the food too.
    Bars are the best!
    Archer:
    Mehehe!
    Ahhh
    Elza, I'm glad you were my master.
    Elza:
    What do you mean by that?
    You want another mug, is that it, Archer?
    Archer:
    Well that's a good idea.
    Elza:
    Ah, miss!
    Another please! Two large mugs of beer.
    Waitress:
    Yes maam!
    Archer:
    What a person you are. In the middle of a war we're here reveling.
    I like you even more.
    Elza:
    It's not that big of a deal.
    Archer:
    No, no.
    Waitress:
    Thank you for waiting! Here's two large mugs
    Elza:
    Thanks!
    Then, third time eh?
    Prosit!
    Archer:
    Prosit!
    Elza:
    Kuhaa——
    Archer:
    Mmm. That's good, taste good.
    What's this egg thing, fish egg?
    Elza:
    It's called dashimaki tamago, you like it? Should we order more?
    Archer:
    Yes, please.
    Elza:
    Okay!
    Miss, another one of this dashimaki mentai please.
    Waitress:
    Yes Maam!
    Boss, additional order for dashimaki mentai!
    Bar owner:
    O!
    Elza:
    (It's similar. Japan's tavern, and my hometown's hofbrauhaus is not much different.
    Both alcohol and food are not bad; the liveliness of the customers; it's helplessnes too; well similar things.

    The only difference is probably just the space and the music.

    Yeah, It's really similar. Every city... every country is the same. Japan, Germany, Palestine, Ireland, Central and South american countries, and Cambodia...

    everywhere it's very similar.

    Similar places are similar.

    Wrapping all of creation that arised from the Swirl of the Root is only one world.
    I am delighted with delicious food and alcohol.
    To laugh; to talk with a friend; adorable children always running crazy

    And beside all of it, open the bloody fangs aligned on its mouth... hell awaits.

    It's the same everywhere.

    As I'm here sipping alcohol like this, five inches beside me, five minutes... hell awaits.

    The sound of flesh being pierced, the sound of flesh splitting apart... gunshot... explosion... cursing... knife...

    Again... rage... grudge... envy...

    It's possible for anyone to be swallowed up by hell.

    Anyone could always be eaten by a cruel beast.

    Most people are just pretending not to see. Including me.

    Here and hell... five inches and just five minutes away.

    Almost the same, same as everywhere.)
    Waitress:
    Dashimaki mentai, thank you for waiting!
    Archer:
    O-oh! Thank you!
    Waitress:
    Ehehe, Enjoy it!
    Archer:
    It's here, Elza. Dashimaki mentai.
    Elza:
    Yeah.
    (I'm an idiot! I thought about strange things.

    Did he notice?)
    Archer:
    Heh
    Elza:
    What?
    Archer:
    No, nothing.
    I just thought that I also want to see the world that you are seeing.
    Elza:
    Hehehe, what's that mean?
    Archer:
    I wonder.
    Elza:
    Hmm.
    Archer:
    You must be uh... you've seen too many bad things when you were young, Elza.
    Elza:
    Maybe so.
    (In this world, I saw many things that I was not supposed to see.

    In this world, I also recognize the many lovable shining things.

    Learning magecraft was my duty by carrying this prestigous name.

    Perhaps my travels all over the world just changed the way I see things.

    And the cause is... not only because I was traveling around the world...

    Luca, ever since you were gone...)

    Heh, sneaky.
    You always see through anything huh, Archer?
    Archer:
    Really?
    Elza:
    Really! If you weren't, then I wouldn't be telling you this right now.
    (If it's life experience, I should have a bit more piled up.

    Truly a great hero, huh?

    We've been drinking alot and he doesn't seem even a bit tipsy.

    Even if I don't get drunk, my face would still turn red.)
    Archer:
    Even if it's wine of the gods, I won't get drunk.
    Elza:
    I'm not drunk either. I didn't drink so much that it would affect our battles.
    Archer:
    Well that's true.
    Haa———
    You're amazing.
    I thought I remember something about purebreed mages all being hardheaded tyrannical people.
    This country's mages generally follows the flow of ensuring purity, right?
    Elza:
    If you look into those old houses, that's probably true for those who wants to get along with the Clock Tower.
    Archer:
    Is it different for you?
    Elza:
    To begin with, my house is in Germany. But I think that it's not much different for this country's mages.
    My house is not that prestigous anyways. I'm a delinquent as well.
    Archer:
    Hmm?
    Elza:
    I never thought that I could even leave my name of this large scale ritual.
    (This lie too... it might have already been seen through by your clairvoyance.

    I will definitely talk about it soon. Until then, my true feelings... even if you know just be silent, please, Archer.)

    Part 13: First Battle of the Holy Grail War

    Elza:
    Then, see ya.
    I didn't come up with anything so far but be careful.
    Archer:
    Ya
    Elza:
    I'll leave what comes next to you. Even if we encounter them, don't do anything improper.
    Archer:
    I understand. It's my specialty.
    Elza:
    Is that right?
    Archer:
    That's right.
    (Elza will do this field something and standby at the Ochanomizu Hotel while I scout around the area.

    I am in agreement. If I were to do reconnaissance, it would be easier without Master.)

    Though it would be interesting if I encounter saber.
    Hmph.
    My armor and bow. It's convenient but lacks taste.
    (In life I'd need materials and time, but now... in an instant.)

    This is a Heroic Spirit, huh?
    (The me right here and the me alive 3000 years ago are not the same.

    Well I'm sure I'm dead. Then this form I have now must be a reflection of me in life.)

    Well then, let's do this!
    From a high vantage point, Akihabara can be seen well.
    Heeeh———?
    It was the same yesterday, but around this time there really are no people nor iron boxes.
    Ooh———, the iron dragon. It's really fast. I am fast too. And I can leap high too.
    Well this kind of performance is not much different from when I was alive.
    (I am not me, but I'm like a me that is once again in this world. Strange stuff.)

    Enemy visuals, none for now.
    (The townscape has changed so much with the color of the night.)

    Bloodlust, none; prana, none.
    (It's just the people that haven't changed much, I think.

    I'm sure it's similar to the twinkling of the stars floating in the sky.)

    This is like swimming in between the sea of stars. Not bad.
    Oh!
    (It's neither bloodlust nor pana. It's this unique signature of servants, huh?

    That guy's also moving in the air over a hundred kilometers per hour.
    I wanted to avoid shooting arrows if I could, but...)
    That's nice, you repelled them well.
    (That guy's speed is changing.

    This is... Haha—— I'm being chased? Don't wanna.
    I'll do this seriously. It's possible to shoot 10,000 arrows in a minute, but...

    No, if I do so, the town of Akihabara will be destroyed. People will die.

    It's no good. Hah——, that's it. If I could think like this then I am still me.

    But what's with this? I can't do anything but shoot. Will I just get caught up to like this?
    That's right.
    (I'm being read. Landing on the roof of the same building at the same time.)
    Lancer:
    The Third servant, correct?
    Archer:
    And you must but the Fourth, Lancer, correct?
    Being a lady, you don't carry that impression but... that's a noble phantasm isn't it?
    Lancer:
    That may be.
    Archer:
    (Silver armor, purple colored irises, a huge spear, and there's that smile, huh?
    You're smiling so sadly. Complete opposite of Elza's.)

    Perhaps our encounter is the Holy Grail War's first battle.
    Lancer:
    Yeah.
    Archer:
    You know what would happen in a fight between Heroic Spirits, don't you?
    Lancer:
    Yeah.
    Archer:
    You wanna continue?
    Lancer:
    No. You wouldn't want us to release our noble phantasms, don't you?
    Archer:
    Dunno.
    Lancer:
    Well then.
    For me, this is more than enough.
    Unless if you'll let me run away.
    Archer:
    This is really a bad place for this.
    Lancer:
    That... is true.
    I think there are too many people living here.
    Archer:
    I agree.
    Lancer:
    You too.
    Archer:
    Ugh
    Lancer:
    I'm sorry.
    Haah————!
    Archer:
    Uwooohh!!
    It's unnatural to take a distance right after aiming for a sudden attack.
    Distance is more of my playing field.
    Lancer:
    It's apologies for my discourtesy.
    Archer:
    For aiming at my neck?
    Lancer:
    For telling a lie.
    Archer:
    Oh——?
    He—Hahahaha! You've become quite troublesome.
    If you're unmotivated to do this, then leave.
    For now I managed to hit the sky, but next time I might have to hit the ground.
    Lancer:
    You're kind.
    Archer:
    I'm a great hero after all.
    Lancer:
    Such a gentle person... I... no.
    Well then, I'll take you up on that offer.
    Archer of the scarlet bow.
    Archer:
    She's gone, huh?
    Astral form, was it?
    It does not really mean turning invisible.
    Well, it's good that there were no casualties...
    —tonight, that is.

    Part 01: Shinjuku Strolling I

    Narrator:
    Holy Grail War
    ——3rd day
    —————————————————————————————————————————————————— —————
    Tatsumi:
    (He is really fitting in.
    Him being there seems quite natural...)
    Jekyll:
    Heee——
    A TV screen this big...
    Tatsumi:
    (I actually thought he'd stand out.)
    Woman 1:
    Hey hey, that person is so handsome!
    Woman 2:
    Is he a model?
    Tatsumi:
    (See, standing out.
    He may fit in, but once noticed it will be like this.)
    Jekyll:
    Even though I understand it in my head, It really is still surprising.
    Tatsumi:
    Ahh, yeah... that's true.
    Foreigners are eye-catching after all...
    Jekyll:
    I'm talking about Alta Vision
    Tatsumi:
    Ah... yup.
    That's true
    There wasn't one of those in your era.
    You didn't have TV yet, right?
    Eh, but I thought you should already have contemporary knowledge?
    Jekyll:
    I told you, "even though I understand"...
    Tatsumi:
    Oh sorry.
    Jekyll:
    Don't mind it, Tatsumi.
    It's definitely a confusing feeling.
    Tatsumi:
    Really, my bad.
    So... — how is it? — Shinjuku.
    As you asked, I brought you somewhere with as many people as possible.
    Jekyll:
    Yeah, I was able to see good things.
    Even though they change in appearance, people will not change.
    Tatsumi:
    Hmmm?
    Jekyll:
    Thank you for bringing me here, master.

    Part 02: Random Thought

    Manaka:
    No.
    I will not bring saber outside.
    Mr. Sajiou:
    Manaka!
    Manaka:
    Definitely no.
    Mr. Sajiou:
    What are you talking about?
    Fuuu...
    Manaka,
    depending on the strategic prowess used in the holy grail war, servants could serve as engines for various actions.
    Servants are weapons... more precisely, they are clusters of mystery possessing power greater than weapons.
    Refraining from using their power is a given, but
    you just kept Saber confined within the mansion for the whole day.
    What are you thinking?
    You can't possibly win the Holy Grail War that way.
    Manaka:
    I can do it.
    Mr. Sajiou:
    Manaka.
    Manaka:
    I can make do in this Holy Grail War alone.
    Mr. Sajiou:
    Then there's no way you would survive.
    If the opponent is just a magus, there's no way you'd fall behind.
    But the Holy Grail War is different.
    Servants... don't underestimate heroic spirits that left their mark on human history.
    The common magus wont even survive half a day.
    Two days would already be a miracle, even for you.
    Saber:
    Manaka, I also agree with your father's words.
    I came here to fight alongside you.
    Mr. Sajiou:
    You heard that Manaka.
    He——
    Manaka:
    That's it!
    I thought of something good, Saber.

    Part 03: Shinjuku Strolling II

    Tatsumi:
    This place really doesn't change.
    Jekyll:
    Really?
    Tatsumi:
    It's been a long time, but I used to come here alot as a child.
    Keio department store, Rooftop Amusement Park.
    It's too small to be called an Amusement Park though.
    Look, there are many small rides.
    Those are good for little kids.
    Jekyll:
    Department Store, huh?
    London had Harrods too.
    Tatsumi:
    Heh———?
    The scenery seems a bit different.
    Is it because I grew up?
    Jekyll:
    The cityscape changes little by little.
    Tatsumi:
    That's true.
    It's getting late now, huh?
    Jekyll:
    Thanks for the tour today.
    I saw some good things.
    Tatsumi:
    No need for thanks.
    It's also fun to skip school and walk around Shinjuku once in a while.
    Jekyll:
    School...
    Tatsumi:
    Hmm
    Jekyll:
    R-Really?
    I made you skip your classes?
    I'm sorry, Tatsumi.
    Contemporary societal knowledge was granted to me but...
    Tatsumi:
    I thought you knew that and still wanted to see the city.
    Hahaha! You seemed like a know-it-all, but you're actually a bit of an airhead, aren't you, Berserker?
    Jekyll:
    Ughh, I'm sorry.
    Tatsumi:
    Ahh, it's fine.
    I simply showed around my newly made friend. It's normal.
    Jekyll:
    Tatsumi.
    Tatsumi:
    Hanging around the arcade by the west entrance really made me nervous though.
    Skipping school to go to the arcade...
    Jekyll:
    Ahh, I'm sorry!
    Tatsumi:
    I said It's fine.
    The sky is really clear tonight, huh?
    Which one is the winter triangle?
    Do stars appear the same in your home town —In London?
    Jekyll:
    It's mostly the same.
    Tatsumi:
    I see.
    Jekyll:
    Two nights ago —the night we met, you said...
    Tatsumi:
    Ye?
    Jekyll:
    I am, as you said, a character from a story told as a novel.
    To be exact, I am the human model of that character.
    No, that person turned into a heroic spirit after death,
    then through you and the Holy Grail, he was led to manifest as a servant.
    Tatsumi:
    That's confusing.
    Jekyll:
    Sorry, but this is a fact.
    In life I was a researcher with objective views on all things...
    now, these are certainly objective facts.
    Not human... only because I am a servant that I can declare so.
    Tatsumi:
    It's fine, I believe you.
    You're an existence called a servant,
    not a human being, and you're here to win the Holy Grail War with me, right?
    Jekyll:
    Yeah.
    I'm, from the previous century, a person from the 19th century.
    Tatsumi:
    I already heard that.
    Jekyll:
    That's true.
    I already said it.
    That's why I wanted to see the appearance of the city and the people living in this 20th century.
    Knowledge of the society and customs of this Tokyo of 1991 is already given to me by the holy grail but...
    Tatsumi:
    I already heard that too.
    Jekyll:
    Ah, that's true.
    And today I found out, people don't change, and the city too.
    A lot of people are enjoying that life.
    Tatsumi:
    Uhh, so to say, you're satisfied?
    If that's so then I'm glad too.
    It was worth skipping classes on weekdays to guide you around town.
    Jekyll:
    You have my thanks, Tatsumi.
    Tatsumi:
    No, you don't really have to be so polite in giving your thanks.
    Jekyll:
    But it's true that I appreciate it.
    So, let me say this...
    Tatsumi:
    Hmm?
    Jekyll:
    I... even now, I still have regrets.
    Even if my experiments with the use of the elixir is something I chose to do,
    the evil within me, Hyde, I couldn't stop him in life,
    When I stopped him in exchange for my life.
    The fact remains that there were already a lot of sacrifices.
    Tatsumi:
    ...
    Jekyll:
    I'm... a powerless servant.
    Using the elixir as my Noble Phantasm...
    Enhancement... or it might be closer to beast morphing.
    In other words, to not reveal the disposition of the anti-hero Hyde, I have almost no difference from normal people.
    In exchange for not having the unique presence that servants emit, I could not activate any skills and I can't make use of my full parameters.
    Tatsumi:
    (I already heard that too.
    So even walking without him in spirit form, it is unlikely that we will be percieved.
    Why is he restating it now?)
    Jekyll:
    I am powerless.
    Without going berserk, it would be difficult to demonstrate my power.
    In this Holy Grail War where we reveal our hands while exploring each others identities,
    Somone like me is surely not suited for this.
    Even so, I come to think...
    I, the time I had in my past life,
    without the place changing along with it's people in this city...
    I want to satisfy these sorrows smoldering in my chest.
    Tatsumi:
    That's... when you said you wanted to go outside today, it's related to that, huh?
    Jekyll:
    Yes. The Holy Grai War
    It is established and stipulated as a secret feud under mages law,
    however the power of heroic spirits are enormous.
    Rough myths, the power they wield as their legend's reconstruction.
    It may be part of this great war that your grandfather envisioned.
    If intensified, Tokyo will become a literal war zone. Many people will fall victim.
    That's why I, this time... from the beginning, will try to be a hero of justice.
    Tatsumi:
    (In the past I was a Hero of Justice.
    I transform, and ride giant robots.
    Opposing evil monsters and organizations, that spreads fear to everyone in town, with the power of justice.
    I protected peace.
    Little boys of that age were mostly like that.
    In childhood, I... we saved this world a lot of times.
    Yes, when I was innovently playing at Keio Sky Playland.
    It was so until some time in elementary school.
    Such a thing, I can hardly recall it anymore.
    It's an old story.
    It's embarrassing to remember.
    But I was certainly a hero of justice.
    Behaving and indentifying myself as the masked heroes seen on TV.
    Asigning the Villain's role to my neighborhood friends.
    Of course, I'm not only the hero.
    Sometimes I become the bad guy.
    It's basically an alternate shift.
    A child's pretend play.)
    (???♀:
    I wan't to be with onii-chan)(She seemed so uninterested, but my little sister said that and played hostage role.
    Until the sun sets, were saving the world and attacking the world.
    It was fun? No, I don't remember well.
    It's the same as the amusement park.
    The "that was fun" memory of my past has gone obscure.
    However, just one thing...
    something I clearly remember even now...
    as always on our way home from playing pretend, she, my little sister, Tamaki once said...)
    (Tamaki:
    Hey oni-chan, a while ago when Nori-kun was the bad guy, I was a bit scared... just a little.
    Well, since I had oni-chan, I wasn't scared.)

    (What's that? "You were scared, weren't you?"
    I believe, I said that... and she laughed at me.
    Hero of justice, huh?
    Tokyo will be a war zone?
    Holy Grail War...
    That's the name of a certain magic ritual.
    When you say war, it is where there is an exchange of life.
    Tokyo, the town I grew up in...
    There're my long time friends.
    In the morning, there's that old man who greet me everytime for garbage disposal.
    There's that clerk from the convenience store I got to every after school.
    There're many good people who ride the train to school.
    There's also the female classmates who made me laugh three days ago.)

    Hero of justice, heh?
    Jekyll:
    I don't mind if you laugh and think it's uncool, master.
    Tatsumi:
    As if I'd laugh.
    Eh, Magecraft huh? I'm still too ignorant about that.
    This right eye too, I didn't think it's much until you told me about it.
    I don't know if I'd be able to use it well.
    Jekyll:
    I'll properly guide you.
    During my lifetime, I was not a magus but...
    at the end of pharmaceutics, I had arrived at one end of alchemy.
    To some extent, I could teach you about it.
    Tatsumi:
    Will that let me win? Mages and Heroic Spirits are like monsters, aren't they?
    Jekyll:
    I don't know.
    Tatsumi:
    Ha—haha—ha——! What's with that? Seriously?
    Don't make me laugh.
    (Command Seals, black wing patterns.
    The number of feathers engraved on my body is just one.
    As the more of these means a more excellent magician, apparently I am at the bottom.
    Odds are against me.
    This is a fight between fighters that could defeat a tank.
    And I even quit karate class in half a year.
    Furthermore, the person who saved the world many times in play pretends in the past is now a second year highschool student.)

    he—he—hehe! But even so, if I can't escape, then I'd have to do this.
    Jekyll:
    Hmm.
    Tatsumi:
    Let's do this, Berserker.
    I may not be a hero of justice,
    I want to protect this Tokyo and everyone who gave me smiles.
    If the Holy Grail War will destroy Tokyo and Kill people, I... want to stop it.
    Jekyll:
    Thank you!
    Therefore right here and now, my wish has been complete.
    Among my past shortcomings, before I fell into evil madness... before my body was taken over the anti-hero... my wish was to impart justice.
    That's why Tatsumi, I believe that you from the moment you summoned me, has already granted my wish for the grai.
    I will stop the Holy Grail War and save Tokyo.
    Your wish is not something the Holy Grail can grant.
    You can only do it by your own hands, master.
    Tatsumi:
    I'll do everything that I can.
    If the girl I'm interested in dies before Valentine's Day,
    then I won't be able to shake it off even if I die.

    Part 04: Sunshine 60

    Lancer:
    Aargh!
    Saber:
    Kuh!
    Lancer:
    Ugh!
    Haa!
    Saber:
    Khaa!
    Kuh!
    Lancer:
    Uh!
    Huuugh!
    As expected of the number 1 servant.
    You're resilient.
    You move quickly, precisely, without any openings.
    You must be a really famous hero.
    Saber:
    I understand.
    You have a fine disposition yourself too, number 4 servant, Lancer.
    Lancer:
    Oh? I have been found out?
    That this is a spear.
    Saber:
    Unlike mine, your weapon is easy to figure out.
    'though it may somewhat be a bit too huge.
    Lancer:
    That's true.
    It's just a shame that your weapon won't show itself;
    it's hard to figure out.
    Unseen armament... it is...
    Saber:
    I will accept your surrender any time.
    Knights primarily point their blades to those that disrupt order.
    Lancer:
    You're kind aren't you?
    Being kind to me like that... is problematic.
    Hah!
    Saber:
    Urgh!
    Lancer:
    Kuh!
    Well done.
    Saber:
    Kuh!
    An oversized spear... it's like a giant's hand.
    Lancer:
    Some have even compared it to a certain wolf's jaw,
    Saber:
    It must have been an enormous wolf then.
    Lancer:
    Yes.
    Saber:
    Urk!
    Kuh!
    This force...
    Lancer:
    Not yet.
    Hah!
    Saber:
    Yeaargh!
    Lancer:
    Ufufu!
    Hah!
    Saber:
    Raaaagh!
    Lancer:
    Fhun!
    Ugh!
    Saber:
    Kaaaahhh!
    Lancer:
    Hught!
    Saber:
    Oh!
    A wall of flames...
    Lancer:
    Kuh!
    You're tough.
    Saber:
    The one holding back with this level of attacks is you.
    Lancer:
    Oh? I've been figured out again.
    A kind person.
    I wonder if aiming to end this with one hit to my heart is a manifestation of your compassion.
    Saber:
    Compassion...
    Lancer:
    A kind person.
    A kind servant.
    If you're that kind...
    I...
    Saber:
    (What?
    a small bottle?
    An elixir, huh?)
    Lancer:
    It's problematic.
    Saber:
    Huh?
    Lancer:
    You're so full of kindness...
    Really, I'm... so troubled.

    Part 05: Skull Mask

    Hassan-i-Sabbah:
    (What am I doing?
    When I materialized, I was certainly me.
    It's different, yet also the same in my past life.
    Poisonous flower.
    Poisonous woman.
    There was a man in front of me.
    The man was the same with every other men I have met.
    They'd seek me... and I end up killing them.
    This time for sure... is what I thought...
    It's just the height of my wishful thinking.
    I kill everything in my path.
    Being the poison that I am...
    I have just one wish.
    Someone who, even when touching me, wouldn't die, wouldn't fall, would give me smiles...
    even though a being that would keep their life when touching me... can't possibly exist.
    Therefore, I can nolonger have my wish granted.
    Afterall, I have already killed him, my master.
    I can't have the Holy Grail anymore.
    I will disappear within the darkness... together with memories of my stupidity and regrets.
    I have no choice but to disappear, but...
    I can't stop it.
    I... don't wan't to disappear!
    I... don't want to die!
    I... still, haven't given up, huh?
    One... two... It's been three days.
    By murdering people... by eating their souls... I am able to sustain this transient life.
    Changing this appearance with my skills... apart from my clothes and complexion.)
    ???♂:
    Girl, why are you so lightly dressed?
    Hahaha, foreigners are fine with the cold, huh?
    You alone?
    Hassan-i-Sabbah:
    Yes.
    ???♂:
    You... look so lonely.
    Hassan-i-Sabbah:
    No...
    I'm... not lonely.
    But...
    ???♂:
    But?
    Oh? Hehehe.
    Hassan-i-Sabbah:
    I'm sad... so... will you smile for me?
    Will you... comfort me?
    ???♂:
    Ugghhh... uggh... haahh... ugghh...
    Hassan-i-Sabbah:
    (The lounge of that small hotel, along with the fifth one tonight...
    I kissed them... and killed them.
    I once again head to the train station.
    Night on Tokyo...
    Men on Tokyo...
    Tokyo's Toshima Ward, Ikebukuro.
    Around JR Ikebukuro station.
    On this season, it's full of people.
    Especially on the north part of the station...
    since it's near the residential area.
    There are a lot of men on their way home.
    Also, there's a lot of hotels.
    But... I can only do this a few more times.
    Those people who were killed will catch attention.
    It will cause a commotion.
    I'd end up killing people who can't even speak.
    "Let's stop the serial killings on the north area... and move to the east."
    That's what I thought.
    I am... I can't change the fact that I'm a servant whether I like it or not.)

    This feeling!
    (Two pressences... two heroic spirits are... fighting now around the vicinity of Ikebukuro station.
    Based on the direction and distance, the location is most likely by Sunshine 60 area.
    I should run...
    I could no longer participate in the Holy Grail War.
    However... they who do not know that, once they notice my existence, I will... be killed.
    While I completely conceal my own presence, I flee towards the dark alleyway...
    to that building's rooftop.
    If I jump over that building's rooftop, I'd be outside of Ikebukuro.
    I don't want to die... I still want to live... I still don't want to give up.
    That's why, I will live, live, live, survive.)
    Manaka:
    Oh?
    Hassan-i-Sabbah:
    (A voice... as gentle as a chiming of a bell.)
    Manaka:
    You're unusual, aren't you?
    Hmm, I don't know that many servants, but...
    Hassan-i-Sabbah:
    Huh?
    Manaka:
    You're Assassin aren't you?
    Hassan-i-Sabbah:
    ...
    Manaka:
    Heh——— I see...
    you don't have a master, don't you?
    well then,
    Hassan-i-Sabbah:
    (Standing on a rooftop, a lone little girl...
    under the moonlight.
    She looked like this world's princess.)
    Manaka:
    Your face, show me.
    Hassan-i-Sabbah:
    (The little girl's pure white hand...
    while bathing... in starlight and moonlight...
    glowing fingertips.
    Just like that, my voracity has ended.)

    Narrator:
    Heroic Spirit —— Servant —— Without prana, they can't exist.
    In other words, they can't exist without a master.
    Strictly speaking, servant summoning as well as the prana used in their materialization is from the Holy Grail.
    It is done through the Holy grail.
    The Holy Grail makes the impossible possible.
    This can only be thought of as evidence that the Great Holy Grail is indeed an omnipotent wish granting vessel.
    However, for maintaining the physical form of servants after summoning, and use of battle prowess... the prana used all comes from the master.
    In addition, the masters serve as the servants' anchor in the present world.
    For the heroic spirit to be a person of that era, they must be anchored there by their master.
    After loosing their master, they can not exist.
    As such, upon loosing their master, in accordance to a heroic spirit's original nature, most would immediately disappear.
    Upon loosing their master, a servant would loose their anchor and vanish from this world.
    They could maintain their form for a day or few with the Independent Action skill, but...
    Independent Action skill is a special skill only for Archers.
    It does not apply to servants of other classes.
    But there are exceptions.
    Based on a heroic spirit's myths, legends, and anecdotes with relation to a long-term independent activity,
    it's possible for them have some form of Independent Action skill regardless of class. Therefore, even after killing their master, don't let your guard down.
    Further exceptions include... use of large quantities of consumable prana sources for suppression of vanishing and preservation of the body.
    An example is feeding on souls as supplementary source of prana.
    —Excerpt from an old note

    Part 06: Late Night Rendezvous

    Saber:
    Manaka
    Manaka:
    Oh, perfectly on time!
    You're amazing, Saber.
    I was just about to finish getting ready.
    Here, sit down.
    Saber:
    That's...
    Manaka:
    It's called a camp seat.
    It is used for when you go outdoors —like for a picnic.
    It might rarely be used on the roof of a building though.
    I brought with me the magic bottle so I'll serve you hot tea.
    Here you go.
    Saber:
    Thank you.
    Manaka:
    Sit down.
    Saber:
    Yeah.
    Manaka:
    You know you could sit much closer.
    Ufufu!
    Do you want more tea?
    Saber:
    It's fine.
    Manaka:
    Really?
    To bring you outside and put you in danger, I was really against it.
    But then it came to me! "You and me going out late at night like this is going to be fun!"
    I never thought that this would be such a fun thing!
    Ahaha! So fun that it's scary.
    Saber:
    Scary?
    Manaka:
    After all, it makes me want to keep going out again.
    Saber:
    Well that would be problematic.
    Manaka:
    Wait a moment. We haven't had dinner yet right?
    Ehehe!
    I packed the basket full before going out.
    Between sandwiches and rice balls, which do you prefer?
    Do you know of Count Sandwich? Britain's future... no, thinking of it from now, it would be the past... apparently a nobleman there made it.
    The count wanted to enjoy a game during a mealtime and thought of it.
    That's why this is a suitable meal during a game.
    Saber:
    I see.
    Om...non..nom.
    (Delicious.
    Fresh vegetables.
    In my era, raw vegetables were extremely valuable.)
    Manaka:
    Is it good?
    Saber:
    Hmm.
    Yeah.
    (Nostalgic
    The name is different, but...
    It was also in Brittain transmitted from Rome.
    Bread was... from long ago...)
    I love (it).
    Manaka:
    Eh?
    Saber:
    I Love (it)!
    Manaka:
    Just now...
    Saber:
    Huh?
    Manaka:
    Just now... just...
    I may be a bit to self conscious but... that's unfair, Saber.
    Saber:
    I just encountered a single servant a while ago.
    Most likely Lancer.
    We clashed but... I couldn't grasp the limits of her abilities.
    She didn't activate her Noble Phantasm either.
    And then... after drinking something, she disappeared disappointingly.
    It was good that I was the one to encounter her.
    If by chance you were discovered by Lancer...
    Manaka:
    Hmm?
    Saber:
    As I thought, we really shouldn't part ways outside the workshop.
    Manaka:
    Ehehehe!
    You're worried for me, yeah?
    Saber:
    That's to be expected.
    Manaka:
    You're a worrywart Saber.
    No, you're just really kind.
    But don't worry, I would immediately know whenever someone approaches me.
    That's why it's nothing at all.
    Saber:
    It's true that you have put up a powerful barrier around here, but...
    It's still dangerous.
    For example, if it's the Assassin servant.
    Manaka:
    You don't need to worry about Assassin.
    I already dealt with her a while ago.
    Saber:
    Hmm?
    Manaka:
    I don't mean I defeated her, but she's no longer an enemy.
    Saber:
    What do you mean?
    Manaka:
    I just did something.
    Saber:
    Huh?
    Manaka:
    It is safe here.
    There are no Mages nor Servant within a 3km radius.
    Hey Saber,
    I managed to do something about one servant so...
    reward...
    Saber:
    That's true...
    Manaka:
    Eh? Eh?
    Saber...
    Saber:
    Stay Still.
    Chu——
    Manaka:
    Hyahuwaa——!
    U-U-Unfair! That's unfair!
    Even I thought lips-to-lips is still a bit too early. I thought so but...
    The forehead? No, I'm happy! I'm happy with your touch!
    However... but... but uhm...
    Saber:
    Heh.
    (Like this she is much more like her age, able to express a pleasing reaction.
    Pure... is not the term... there is no mistake about that.
    She is more like... a clean white... an unblemished white...
    or an absolute white that paints out all of creation.)

    Narrator:
    Holy Grail War ——Day 4
    —————————————————————————————————————————————————— ——————————————————
    ???♀:
    Dear Father, you called for me?
    Misaya's Father:
    Misaya? Enter.
    Misaya:
    Yes.
    Good morning, dear father!
    Misaya's Father:
    Good morning, Misaya!
    That said, the sun has yet to rise.
    Misaya:
    Around two more hours.
    Misaya's Father:
    I called you before dawn, I guess I have interrupted your restful sleep.
    I'm sorry——
    Misaya:
    ——No... such...
    Please talk to me about anything.
    Mother and the servants are in the villa in Izu after all.
    Misaya's Father:
    I cannot treat you like a maid, Misaya.
    Misaya:
    Father!
    Misaya's Father:
    Hmm?
    Misaya:
    Is it not necessary to reinforce the workshop?
    The Holy Grail War has already...
    Misaya's Father:
    Ah... It has already started.
    My familiars have already confirmed two aggressive clashing between servants.
    Misaya:
    Then...
    Misaya's Father:
    There's no need to worry.
    Reiroukan is at the top in magecraft in the far east.
    That does not change in the duration of the Holy Grail War.
    Misaya:
    Father...
    (What?
    Behind father... something...
    hidden via magecraft?
    "sight enhancement")

    A human shadow?
    Who?
    ???♂:
    You're a wise child.
    It may have only been rudimentary, but to be able to see through my concealment magecraft.
    Aside from your bloodline, there's also your talent and devotion.
    I'm sure your teacher is also good at teaching.
    Misaya's Father:
    I am honored.
    Misaya:
    Fa—ther?
    Misaya's Father:
    Reinforcement of the mage workshop has already been done, Misaya.
    Workshop... no, it could even be called a temple now.
    With his splendid use of skillfull magecraft... my mansion has been remade into an unprecedented fortress of mystery.
    Misaya:
    Temple?
    Misaya's Father:
    Give your greetings, Misaya.
    He shall be the one to bring Reiroukan to the Root.
    Misaya:
    Bring to... the Root?
    ???♂:
    Nice to meet you, little princess.
    Misaya:
    Ah?
    Caster:
    I shall offer you my teachings, o' child of abundant potential.
    I am an old thing that manifested into the Caster class.
    Just like you, I also aim for the Root as one magus...
    together with your father.
    Please be friends with me.

    Part 08: The Advent of the Sun is Right Here

    Mr. Isemi:
    O' Holy Grail!
    A heroic spirit summoning happened here.
    With the Isemi family's rage, indignation, and pride
    I have summoned you, o' luminous Rider.
    With the power of an ancient king, the Holy Grail shall be ours!
    We shall not fall behind the reiroukan.
    Hear me, we shall not!
    While borrowing the powers of western magecraft and modern civilization,
    as a mage family, the only reason we kept on existing is all for this moment!
    We shall be ressurected!
    This shall be the last time that those fools from the mages association would look down on us as a third-rate family!
    Originally, the history of our Isemi house runs deeper than the waters in the ocean.
    That was until a few centuries ago when another western magecraft family of equal standing arrived in this land, unforgivable!
    On top of this, for even the omnipotent wish granting vessel, the Holy Grail, to fall onto the hands of the Reiroukan,
    our Isemi name would immediately fall onto the ground!
    We can't allow that!
    We definitely can't allow that!
    Look upon this mask!
    A mystic code that augment these declining magic circuits which absorbs the prana that's released by others into the wearer —That's our mask!
    Absoring prana from those masses ignorant of mystics,
    we will turn you into the literal Strongest Servant!
    Western Magecraft, science, and with the lives of the ignorant masses... for now we shall bear with our powerlessness and shame.
    We just have to bear with it... in order to fight.
    In order for the Holy grail, hidden here in Tokyo, to be subdued by these hands.
    At that moment, even we fell from grace like the dark snake... we reached out to western magecraft; as that's not enough we used science...
    ——it's tough to wash off of family's sins now.
    As such, I declare, o' heroic spirit brought upon by my ritual, we must get the Holy Grail no matter what!
    ???♂:
    What a petty vessel.
    Boring!
    Mr. Isemi:
    What?
    Pharaoh:
    How foolish.
    What's more, ah... how comical!
    'Guess there are just some things that wont change no matter the era.
    The very fact that people are idiots isn't something that I, the Pharaoh, shall be resurrected for.
    However, so long as you know your place and reach out for the heavens...
    ——as the Sun, as a god, as a being of equal standing to Amun and Mut, there shall be no need to punish your pettiness.
    Mr. Isemi:
    ...
    Pharaoh:
    Magus from a land in the far east, to be able to summon me, you must have used a catalyst, right?
    Mr. Isemi:
    ...
    Pharaoh:
    Divulge it. What did you use as a catalyst?
    Was it the vestiges of my chariot taken from my decisive battle against the Hittites?
    Or was it the Egyptian-Hittite peace treaty?
    Or could it be that you dared to steal my mummified remains?
    Mr. Isemi:
    Nay... Nay... Nay!
    Naturally for this mystery, even as to summon you in my workshop here on Mt. Okutama, a catalyst was needed.
    Just as you were thinking, 'o great Pharaoh.
    For us to summon you, we made use of the last necklace that Queen Nefertari wore.
    Paraoh:
    Is that so?
    Kuhaha!
    Well done in researching about me.
    Certainly.
    Rather than deriving from me... to call upon me with my sun's radiance, my beautiful Nefertari's scent definitely works best.
    URAEUS!
    Mr. Isemi:
    Uooh!
    Uooooooohhhh!!!!
    Our 40 barriers...
    even our special ballistic glass...
    ——in an instant!?
    Through the steel armor...
    even to my workshop in this hidden shelter...
    ——in one hit... got bore out!?
    Pharaoh:
    SILENCE!
    You peasant,
    for thou hast defiled my beloved queen,
    start imagining thine end.
    Choose:
    ——be devoured by a divine beast,
    ——or should I erase you and your entire family now?
    Ah... don't even think of using your command seals now.
    Before your words could even reach,
    my light could burn out this entire place much faster.
    Mr. Isemi:
    Art thou... are you going to abandon your wish for the Holy Grail?
    Pharaoh:
    Rather than dancing at the palm of thine filth, that is so much better.
    Now choose.
    Mr. Isemi:
    Uooh... Uwaaaahhh!!!!
    Haaahh!
    uuuuggghhh...
    Pharaoh:
    Twice your heart stopped...
    Twice that mask forced you to rewaken didn't it?
    Hoh? For a magus thou hast pluck.
    Do you wish to taste the moment of death while holding on to your consiousness?
    Mr. Isemi:
    Ughhhaaaahhhh....
    Nay... I won't ask you to forgive my insolence.
    I have long since resolved myself to be killed.
    All for the sake of achieving every magus' great ambition.
    To showcase the power of our Isemi family.
    All for that sake, we risked summoning a kin of Amun.
    Pharaoh:
    I see.
    I am the banner!
    I am the heavens!
    I am lenient!
    I shall let thy keep thine life.
    You said you have the resolve, right?
    Then that feeling, that wish...
    If that is a wish to make you worthy as my master...
    and the worth of this family of yours... I shall judge with my own eyes.
    However, if you dare bore me, I shall immediately make my wrath known to you and your entire family.
    —————————————————————————————————————————————————— —————————————————
    Pharaoh:
    You call this a workshop?
    Isn't this a labyrith?
    Still, even though it's this bright, what is this?
    Let alone being unsuitable for the living,
    this is more like a tomb where the dead sleeps.
    Hmph. It seems my displeasure won't abate soon.
    Guard:
    Who? In a place such as this?
    Pharaoh:
    Hmm
    Guard:
    That's... no... He's the one lord Shizuri summoned... servant?
    Pharaoh:
    You, what's in that room?
    Guard:
    It's... the computer room.
    It's where the supercomputer is always running its calculations with a special software and a hardware that is mixed with magecraft.
    Pharaoh:
    So it's not some ritual tool or a kind of a mystic code?
    Guard:
    Yes.
    Pharaoh:
    And that is?
    It looks a bit too different to be a homonculus culture tank.
    Guard:
    It is as you say.
    Just that... as opposed to the alchemy of the past, with the advancements of modern alchemy, we're able to run this even with miniscule amount of prana.
    And as for the homunculus itself, we are able to make use of a human infant we are able to omit the initial production——
    Paraoh:
    Just as said by the masked old man.
    How unsightly.
    Drugs, huh?
    Hmm?
    The white robed men have dissappeared?
    A young child connected to a machine?
    Were you left alive after some kind of torture?
    Not only the flesh, but even the internal organs?
    It seems you have magic circuits.
    I see.
    Not as a human... you're being left alive as a magic circuit, am I correct?
    As it stands, it must be very painful just to be staying alive.
    Boy:
    fuuu...huuuuhh...
    Pharaoh:
    What's your name?
    Boy:
    Haaahh...
    Pharaoh:
    I'll forgive your lack of speech.
    Therefore, forgive me for pouring water into your fight.
    I am the great Pharaoh.
    As one of my citizens, should you offer your prayer to the heavens, I shall hear them.
    I won't mind giving you mercy.
    Boy:
    Haah... I have... a wish.
    May the people of this world find happiness.
    Pharaoh:
    What?
    (What's this? Even though he'll only suffer so long as he lives, he won't even curse, hate, mourn.
    A royal trait? Nay. A warrior's spirit? Nay. A magus' talent? Nay. That's wrong.
    This can't possibly be something that greedy.
    This feeling; this pressence; this nobility...
    and... ahh...
    The very words being conveyed to me right now...)
    (???♂:
    May there be peace for the world and its people.
    The gods in the heavens, the Pharaoh, and the various other gods that people pray to... I'm sure they all wish for the same thing.)

    (Heh
    So a person so courageous, kind, and cowardly similar to you exist, huh?)
    Boy:
    Heeehh... uhhh..
    Pharaoh:
    Heh! to think that after three thousand and a few hundred years passed, I'd get to hear the same words again.
    Rejoice
    trapped child.
    Carrying your existence, I have allowed the Isemi family to live on.
    Boy:
    Haa...a...a...a...
    Pharaoh:
    You lost consciousness, huh?
    That should be expected.
    Were you an ordinary man, the pain should have made you crazy.
    At least surely within your dreams, as you suffer, as you feel the pain, you should still continue my words just now, little child.
    Similar to my beloved friend.

    Part 09: Tick-Tock

    Narrator:
    With the seventh Heroic Spirit Summoning,
    The stage in Tokyo, for the world's first Holy Grail War, will increasingly be severe.
    There can only be one wish to be granted by the Holy Grail.
    In that regard, the number of Heroic Spirits summoned by the Holy Grail and the seven participating magus is
    seven pairs.
    In other words...
    conflict, fights, killing...
    the one remaining at the end will have their wish granted.
    Holy Grail War
    —an unprecedented matter,
    and a one-of-a-kind deathmatch.
