    Cool. I shall have to check it out even harder in that case!

    Ah, okay. Nice. Yeah, Rider is frigging awesome (my favourite Fate character) and Waver, to me, was an example of a wussy character developed right. At the end, he was still frail/weak physically, but his inner strength had grown significantly.

    Also, suit-clad Saber is best Saber and best TM girl. Though, the Einzbern girls, when taken as a complete package, might just top her. So adorable!

Also, mentioning Asuka with an eyepatch is a spoiler of 3.0 for a few reasons.
    Oops! Thought it'd happened earlier. Well, the ginger, Cyclops cat is out of the bag now! >.<

    Hmm. Okay. Thank you both for the info. They'll have to go on my ever-growing To-Watch list. Though, I've had my fill of semi-sentient mechs and globular deities for a good while yet.

    Really hope they'll make a series out of the final route.
    Last route would be the most fucked up one, but I don't care, I just want to see Sakura's route D: and yes ShirouxRin best, no doubt about it. (Or maybe Ilya... hmm... but she has no route...)

    I see, then I haven't gone crazy yet. Was scouring all my known streaming sites for the episode and none of them have it yet.

    not to mention he wouldn't even help Rin with the blu-ray player until the last minute!
    When he's Shirou and knows exactly how it works!

    This.

    Caster is still higher up on my list then it seems, I just liked the other three a bit more. Maybe if Caster just had some more screen time...

    One of core differences between the series and movies in there: I have yet to watch 3.0, but in 2.22 it's Asuka who pilots the Evangelion unit 03 instead of original series' Touji and if she runs around with an eye-patch in the 3rd movie it means she does get better after getting smashed along with her entry plug. :P

    Well it's in a ton of the previews/trailers so I wouldn't really say it's a spoiler

    Saber Lily is uber pretty. Easily my second favourite. Though, Mordred is quite the cutie too.

    Can anyone give suggestions for animes with a similar style to Death Note? That anime was beyond amazing imo
    (I know you might think its quite a unique style but i mean even the detective side of it was really interesting)

    Death Note is pretty unique. You might want to try Monster

    Detective wise Gosick and Kamisama no Memochou are good. They aren't "grimdark" like Death Note is, but I personally think way way better.
