We’ve arrived at the great cavern in the burning city. What’s in here, Emiya-senpai?
Yeah. When we came to this Fuyuki before, I felt a presence. I’ve been considering our timing since then.
- A presence?
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.
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.
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…
Gudao-senpai has grown as a Master. Have you decided to trust him with your Noble Phantasm?
- We can finally use Archer’s Noble Phantasm!
- Thanks, but you’re being overprotective!
You’ve done great work so far, but there’s one more job to do first.
Just accept it already. I have a bad habit of fussing over people that I like.
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.
The depths of the cavern… Senpai, could that be…
- What was it, again?
 Dr. Roman:
Hey, get it together. It’s Berserker. Berserker!
That huge, burnt dude whose mind is like a hurricane!
…Yes. The opponent that we couldn’t afford to face last time.
This will go faster if you already know. Now, let’s proceed with an optimal plan-
…Or, we can begin with a light warm-up. Drive them off, Gudao!
All nearby enemy signatures neutralized. …Only the Servant remains, deeper in the cave.
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!
We… We did it, Senpai! Victory is ours!
- We won, Mash!
- No lowly Berserker can stop me!
Yes, a splendid battle. Now you’ve graduated from being a rookie.
Oh? Aren’t you going to say he’s an expert now?
Is that really my judgment to make, Doctor? He’s still got quite the workload ahead of him.
That’s true. From my point of view, you’re a wonderful Master, but Magi☆Mari is being annoying about it…
? An internet idol has an opinion about Senpai’s development?
She does. “All you do is talk about that kid lately. You’re so boring!” She’s sulking so much it bothers me.
That’s obviously a shady business tactic. Doctor, please use the internet in moderation.
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.
A duel of Noble Phantasms between Archer and Lancer! That’ll be a sight to see. Make sure you win again, Archer!
That all depends on my Master.
Gudao, I’m counting on you to finish the heroic deeds that I couldn’t accomplish.
