無限の剣製


Mash:

We’ve arrived at the great cavern in the burning city. What’s in here, Emiya-senpai?

Emiya:

Yeah. When we came to this Fuyuki before, I felt a presence. I’ve been considering our timing since then.

  1. Timing?
  2. A presence?

Emiya:

A powerful foe worth serious consideration…
No, I should call it an insurmountable wall.

Gudao. You know that I still can’t use my Noble Phantasm.
I’ve been deliberately holding it back, until you reach a suitable level of strength as a Master.

Dr. Roman:

Oh, so that’s why. I thought your reasoning was weird. Your Noble Phantasm manifests a mental landscape.
You wouldn’t need a catalyst to activate it. You just need to be there.
But the reason you couldn’t use it is because you were waiting for Gudao to mature.

Emiya:

I know quite well that I’m being meddlesome, but some things have to happen in the right order.
I didn’t want you to become a Master overly reliant on Noble Phantasms…

Mash:

Gudao-senpai has grown as a Master. Have you decided to trust him with your Noble Phantasm?

  1. We can finally use Archer’s Noble Phantasm!
  2. Thanks, but you’re being overprotective!

[1] Emiya:

You’ve done great work so far, but there’s one more job to do first.

[2] Emiya:

Just accept it already. I have a bad habit of fussing over people that I like.

Emiya:

Its form is different, but the Greater Grail is here. The Holy Grail War of Fuyuki…
Its greatest Servant slumbers in the cavern depths. I want you to defeat it.
If you can overcome that Servant, then I’ll have no more objections.

Mash:

The depths of the cavern… Senpai, could that be…

  1. What was it, again?
  2. …Berserker.

[1] Dr. Roman:

Hey, get it together. It’s Berserker. Berserker!
That huge, burnt dude whose mind is like a hurricane!

[2] Mash:

…Yes. The opponent that we couldn’t afford to face last time.

Emiya:

This will go faster if you already know. Now, let’s proceed with an optimal plan-

Monster:

GuRuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

Emiya:

…Or, we can begin with a light warm-up. Drive them off, Gudao!

[battle]

Mash:

All nearby enemy signatures neutralized. …Only the Servant remains, deeper in the cave.

Emiya:

It may be blackened, but its power matches the real thing. It isn’t a Servant that will go down after one or two good shots.
Don’t drop your guard until we finally put it down. Let’s go, Master!

[battle]

Mash:

We… We did it, Senpai! Victory is ours!

  1. We won, Mash!
  2. No lowly Berserker can stop me!

Emiya:

Yes, a splendid battle. Now you’ve graduated from being a rookie.

Dr. Roman:

Oh? Aren’t you going to say he’s an expert now?

Emiya:

Is that really my judgment to make, Doctor? He’s still got quite the workload ahead of him.

Dr. Roman:

That’s true. From my point of view, you’re a wonderful Master, but Magi☆Mari is being annoying about it…

Mash:

? An internet idol has an opinion about Senpai’s development?

Dr. Roman:

She does. “All you do is talk about that kid lately. You’re so boring!” She’s sulking so much it bothers me.

Mash:

That’s obviously a shady business tactic. Doctor, please use the internet in moderation.

Emiya:

Anyway, my lessons end here. From now on, command me as you wish, Master.
Why don’t we try fighting a real Berserker sometime? I’ll show you the terminus of my weapon collection again.

Dr. Roman:

A duel of Noble Phantasms between Archer and Lancer! That’ll be a sight to see. Make sure you win again, Archer!

Emiya:

That all depends on my Master.
Gudao, I’m counting on you to finish the heroic deeds that I couldn’t accomplish.
