Fate/Zero finale script cover

Oh what a tease ufotable.
It’s really set up that way too. The ending of Fate/Zero had no concrete closure. Saber’s feeling guilty, Kirei wants more, and Waver’s preparing for a journey. The only form of “closure” would be Kuritsugu’s bittersweet “consolation prize” at the end of the war. He didn’t get what he wanted, but he at least was able to salvage something from it (Shirou).
This just makes Fate/Zero segway directly into Fate/Stay Night, so I can’t really argue for the way it ended. Those who have watched F/SN (myself included) knew that Fate/Zero wouldn’t end well for all parties involved, and indeed it didn’t. But the series as a whole was absolutely brilliant.
(Here’s hoping ufotable does Heaven’s Feel…)
