[Synopsis] Fate Grand Order – Absolute Demonic Front Babylonia

Story

ancb00002
ancb00003

Are those the Demonic Beasts from earlier?

No, that’s not all.

To the north, there are Magical Energy
readings of magnitude greater!

Unbelievable.

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 000

Is that castle wall keeping them in check?

ancb00007

Too early to be surprised.

They have been holding that wall
for six months already.

ancb00008

S-Six months?

The soldiers have been driving back
an endless onslaught of Demonic Beasts.

ancb00011
ancb00012

But the humans suffer fewer casualties
than the Demonic Beasts.

Indeed.

Yes.

There are way more Demonic Beasts
than the soldiers, though.

ancb00022

I wonder what kind of person
is in command of that fortress.

The person must be
a brilliant general at the helm.

ancb00023

But they shed needless blood.

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 002

They don’t need to kill every one of them.

They will go extinct
without even doing anything anyway.

ancb00027

Enkidu?

ancb00029
ancb00031
ancb00033

We are almost at the safe zone.

 We should be able to make it
to Uruk by sunset.

ancb00037

But Enkidu,

we seem to be going
farther away from Uruk.

ancb00039

There is a wharf at the river up ahead.

There is a boat docked there.

Once we get to the wharf,
all we have to do is take it downstream.

ancb00041

Oh my!

I didn’t know that!

ancb00043

Hey, hello.

Sorry to scare you.

I’m not an enemy, so hear me out.

ancb00046
ancb00048

As you can see, we didn’t know our way
through these trails and got lost.

I didn’t expect to see humans in the territory
of the Goddess of Demonic Beasts.

ancb00051
ancb00052

That is unfortunate.

We’re heading to Uruk.
Will you come with us?

Of course! That would help us.

ancb00053

Some strange fate
must have brought us together.

Can you tell us your name?

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 005

I’m Ritsuka Fujimaru.

My name is Mash Kyrielight.

ancb00056

This is Enkidu.

Enkidu?

ancb00059

That’s a problem.

A big problem.

ancb00062

Why?

ancb00063

Because King Gilgamesh,
who is commanding the front line in Uruk,

is the king who returned from his quest
for the herb of immortality.

What does that mean–

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 006

Wait! If so, it doesn’t make sense.

ancb00067

He didn’t set out on that quest
until after the death of his friend, Enkidu.

ancb00068
ancb00072

And he’s returned from the quest. It means…

…Enkidu should’ve been dead a long time ago.

ancb00074
ancb00077

Mash!

ancb00078
ancb00083
ancb00087
ancb00088

Fujimaru… Ritsuka Fujimaru…

Incompetent fools of Chaldea.

ancb00092

I was so close, though. Just a little more, and I would’ve seen something so very fun.

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 009

It’s useless to try to flee.

You are already doomed.

ancb00099

The odds are against the two.

ancb00100

Ana, help them!

ancb00103
ancb00112

This wasn’t part of the deal, but I will protect them.

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 011
ancb00118
ancb00130

It’s useless.

ancb00132

Don’t you get it?

ancb00138
ancb00141

Mash!

ancb00147
ancb00153
ancb00162
ancb00167
ancb00168
ancb00181
ancb00182
ancb00186
ancb00189

You’re using chains, of all weapons, against me? You make me laugh.

ancb00190

Watch out!

ancb00191

You do make me laugh…

ancb00193

…third-rate Servant!

ancb00197
ancb00199

Too pathetic to be taken seriously.

Did you really think such paltry attacks would stand a chance against me?

ancb00203

There’s no need for me to defeat you.

ancb00204

Having a humanlike intelligence
can sometimes backfire on you.

ancb00209

You should take this opportunity
to learn that.

ancb00212

I see…

I’ve been caught
in an illusory dream halfway through.

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 021

Which means that’s the Mage
working for Uruk

ancb00216

I guess I’ll have to withdraw for today.

Besides, I can’t leave her alone
for a whole day.

ancb00220
ancb00223

H-Huh?

ancb00226

Where’s Enkidu?

Wow, that worked out great!

I felt a little guilty because it was
like tricking an innocent child, but we were facing Enkidu.

After all, that boy is working
directly for the King of Mages.

ancb00229

Enkidu’s working for the King of Mages?

Was that really Enkidu?

ancb00234

Yes.

That’s what he called himself
when he destroyed many fortress cities.

Though, while many Uruks seem
to want to believe he isn’t the real thing.

ancb00239

Anyway, all that aside,
let me formally say hello!

I saved you when you were in danger.

Please shower me, your savior,
with your humble words of gratitude!

ancb00247

Oh, r-right! Thank you!

ancb00249

Thank yo–

ancb00251

 Die, Merlin! Foooouu!

ancb00254
ancb00259
ancb00261
ancb00262

Fou?

Y-Y-You feral beast!

–Th-They’re fighting equally.
–Have you forgotten the years
I took care of you?

ancb00264

I never should’ve taken you in,
you wicked beast! Cath Palug!

–How many paw lovers
have you deceived with your cuteness?

ancb00267

–Merlin,
–How many paw lovers
have you deceived with your cuteness?

please limit your lunacy
to when you’re alone at night.

Oh, good work, Ana! You saved me once again.

ancb00270

This battle was not part of our contract.

Be sorry instead of thanking me.

That’s harsh.

ancb00273

Now, we should introduce ourselves.

I am Merlin. This girl is Ana.

We’re actually Servants.

ancb00277

You can call me
“Big Brother Merlin.”

ancb00282

What about you, Ana?
What do you want them to call you?

–Wa–
–It doesn’t matter. Ana is fine.

–It doesn’t matter. Ana is fine.

Hold…

ancb00287

Hold it!

ancb00288

Did you say “Merlin”?

ancb00290

The great Mage of the Isle of Britain,
born of a human and an incubus!

He guided the Altria Pendragon
to the throne and served as court mage!

One of the world’s greatest kingmakers
and the world’s biggest scoundrel!

ancb00293
ancb00296

And as a Servant?

The Grand Mage who shouldn’t be able
to die until the end of the world?

Doctor…

He sounds pretty enthusiastic.

ancb00298
ancb00301

Thank you for a grand introduction
as expected, Romani Archaman.

Well actually,

I only have the right
to be given the Grand title.

I’m all but a normal Caster.

ancb00302

That’s impossible!

Liar! If you’re the real deal,
show us your true form!

ancb00307

What’s gotten into Doctor?

It’s probably because of discrepancies
in the legends about him.

ancb00309

Merlin the Mage built a tower
in the utopia of Avalon,

and watches over the world
from there, never dying.

ancb00311
ancb00314

Therefore…

No one who’s alive can become
a Heroic Spirit, huh?

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 031

That’s right.

First off, in terms of combat,
he’s completely useless!

All Casters with the potential to be
a Grand Caster are powerful clairvoyants.

ancb00319

Solomon’s eyes, for instance,
can see the past and future.

King Gilgamesh can see the future.

ancb00320

But that scoundrel in front of you
is the worst of them!

He can see everything in the present,
but it’s basically magic telescope!

He’s nothing more
than a simply useful guy…

ancb00322

Um, that’s plenty amazing, isn’t it?

Doctor?

ancb00329

Hi! Sorry for butting in!

First, thank you, Merlin.
You helped them get out of danger.

That was a little service.

ancb00332

But it still doesn’t make sense
that you’re a Heroic Spirit.

You’re still in Avalon, right?

I can tell you just the method.

This Singularity manifested in an age
that predates my appearance on Earth.

In other words,
my body doesn’t exist here.

ancb00334

Which means that in this world, it could
theoretically be said that you are dead.

So, you used that fact
to make yourself a Servant?

Something like that.

ancb00336

Also because I was called forth
by a strong summoner.

ancb00338

Is there a Master in this era
besides Senpai?

Yes, of course.

I was summoned by him,

and I now serve as his court mage.

ancb00341

On the other hand, the influence
of the Grail summoned Ana.

She’s a Rogue Servant.
That is, she has no Master.

ancb00343

I met Merlin two days ago.

We made a contract to achieve our goals,

but I was deceived.

ancb00349

Merlin is the embodiment of every kind
of dishonesty, to say the least.

Stop it! Don’t tell them
the truth straight up!

ancb00351

I see. Romani, give it up.

That’s the real Merlin.

My stomach hurts now.

ancb00354

Did you manifest
to work with Chaldea, Merlin?

ancb00356

Of course.

My only pastime in life
is watching the present.

If the present is lost,

I’ll be no more than a lonely man
staring at the Garden in my tower.

Besides

ancb00357
ancb00362
ancb00363
ancb00364
ancb00366
ancb00367
ancb00368

…I’ve been…

…watching your whole fight
on the edge of my seat, Fujimaru.

I don’t think it’s fair to not let me
be part of your group now, do you?

ancb00373

Though, I totally understand I’m a threat
because I’m a Grand Caster.

In the end, all other Caster-class Servants
will realize they can’t beat me

and get shuffled off to the backup group!

ancb00377

Well, team, let’s head to Uruk at daybreak.

When you meet the king, it should
become clear what you’re meant to do.

ancb00379

Yeah. It’s good
being with you, Merlin.

It is nice to be with you.

Then, it’s settled.

ancb00380

What about you, Ana?

Will you come with us?

Going to a human settlement…

ancb00383

Please, Ana.

ancb00386
ancb00387

No handshake please.

Don’t come close to me.

ancb00392
ancb00394

We’re finally understanding
the situation here, Senpai.

Yep. With the rise of the Three Goddess Alliance,

the Sumerian city-states
have been dealt a devastating blow.

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 039

That’s why people have evacuated to Uruk.

Yes. The Demonic Beasts’ invasion up north
is the most serious issue at hand,

as they’re currently the major force
wiping out humanity.

ancb00397

In response, Uruk’s king
has constructed a great fortress.

That is the Demonic Beast Front: Babylonia.

It’s the very last fort
to protect the Mesopotamian world.

ancb00398

If the Demonic Beasts bring down Uruk,
human history is finished right there.

Therefore, what you need to do is…

…search for the Holy Grail that the King of
Mages sent to this era and retrieve it, and…

Take down the Three Goddess Alliance.

ancb00401
Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 040

Yes.

Retrieving the Holy Grail should give us
an idea about the plot of the King of Mages.

But if we leave
the Three Goddess Alliance as is,

the Foundation of Humanity
can’t be restored.

In any case, nothing starts until we arrive at Uruk.

ancb00407
ancb00410

Is the one ruling over Uruk
that King Gilgamesh?

Yes, the most tyrannical
of all ancient kings.

ancb00411

Is that so?

He severed his ties with the gods,
saying that they’re arrogant.

And he claims all beautiful women
and treasures in the world as his own.

ancb00413

He will kill you regardless of agreeing
or disagreeing with his opinion!

I-Isn’t he just irrational
and unreasonable?

ancb00416

Gilgamesh, the King of Heroes.

He was a hero born of god and human.

ancb00417

In his youth, he was fond of people
while also being a sage grounded in reason,

ancb00418

but he became the complete opposite
in his adolescence.

He turned into an out-of-control tyrant.

ancb00419

To admonish him, the gods created the being
that appeared before us, Enkidu.

ancb00420

But as fate would have it…

The two became best friends.

Enkidu…

ancb00421

Well, I’ll tell you about their history later.

Basically, someone bragging about possessing
the originals of all the Noble Phantasms.

An extremely arrogant
and cold-blooded tyrant.

Just remember that is Gilgamesh,
the King of Heroes.

ancb00424

L-Let’s get some spirit into this!

Yes!

ancb00430

That looks like an inspection checkpoint.

Would it be better if we sneaked through?

ancb00431

Based on my experience, any quarrel here
would escalate into a battle.

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 043

You over there!

If you stray from the road,
you’ll be cursed by the Ritual Sect!

Uruk is surrounded by a ritual
warding the Demonic Beasts,

but it seems to have some effects
on humans, as well.

Okay! Thank you for the warning!

ancb00438

Sure.

Are you refugees from Ur?

ancb00444

No, they’re refugees from Girsu.

As for myself, I engage in business.
With the Ritual Sect’s permission.

I’d like to evacuate them.

Are there any procedures I need to follow?

ancb00447

This is the sigil of Lady Siduri.

ancb00450

You must be tired from your long trip!

Welcome to the city of Uruk!

Yes! Thank you very much!

ancb00453

You in the black hood there…

What is it?

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 045

Yep.

I’m impressed you managed to walk
all the way here with your small build.

ancb00456

Take this if you’d like.

ancb00459

They’re sweets my daughter
gave me as an afternoon snack.

ancb00460

B-But…Um…I am, um…

ancb00462

Ana! Why don’t you accept his kind offer?

ancb00463
ancb00467
ancb00468
ancb00472

Thank you very much.

ancb00473
ancb00474

I hope we meet again alive!

We are fighting to survive,
and we spare no efforts if it’s for the cause.

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 047
ancb00476

Now, let’s get going.

ancb00478

This is Uruk today…

Mankind’s oldest fortress city.

ancb00481
ancb00484

–Amazing!
–Amazing!

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 048
ancb00486
ancb00487

Times may be dire,
but the city remains lively, right?

ancb00488

Yeah.

I imagined all sorts of things
when I heard “ancient city,”

but this is beyond everything I imagined!

ancb00490

Yes! This is a fighting city so perfect
that it would even work today!

ancb00492

And everyone is smiling,
and they are so lively!

ancb00494

Sumerians started showing up
in history around 4000 B.C.

But their civilization
was quite elaborate.

ancb00496

It began when people abandoned
a village-based society

and formed city-states housing
tens of thousands of people

by pioneering crop production boosts
through irrigated farming.

ancb00498
ancb00499

Of course, with a country that big,

the invention of writing and the implementation
of higher education were only a matter of time.

The fertile lands created quality mud
which the Sumerians kneaded to make clay.

That, in turn, was used
to build many fortresses.

That is Mesopotamia, the land
of mud, clay, wheat and sheep.

ancb00500
ancb00501

Well, we’ll save a tour of the city for later.

Let’s head over to the ziggurat.

ancb00502

The ziggurat?

A shrine and altar for the Mesopotamians.

Yeah.

We’re finally meeting King Gilgamesh.

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 050

That is all I have to report, sir!

The newer the information
about the war, the better!

Keep me updated.

Yes, sir! We’ll shift to bringing clay tablets
from the secretary every hour!

Good. Next.

ancb00507

The shipments from the city of Eresh
are being delayed, huh?

Send 20 men from the eastern barracks
to clear the Demonic Beasts.

Temun can take command.

It’s his home. He knows it well.

Yes, sir!

ancb00508

By the way, I heard
that Tabado’s daughter is giving birth.

Send her a sacred prostitute to aid her,
along with some healthy fruits.

Yes. I will arrange as such right away.

ancb00512

And pull Tabado off the Northern Wall,

and give him three days’ rest.

His grandson’s face will give him courage.

Is this the report from the astrologers?

ancb00513

Somehow, I had the image
he’d be a lot more terrible of a king,

but he’s not that bad?

But it doesn’t seem like
we’ll be able to get a word in.

ancb00518

No, we need to work up
the courage to talk to him!

ancb00519

That’s right.

You shouldn’t wait for the king
to have a spare moment.

ancb00521

King Gilgamesh!

I, Merlin, Mage extraordinaire,

have brought guests! You busy?

Yeah, I can see that, so don’t worry!

Merlin!

ancb00527
ancb00530
ancb00532

So, you’ve returned, Merlin the Mage.

Welcome.

The king is happy to see you.

Fate/GrandOrder 2話 感想 053

And how did it go?

Did you bring back the Tablet of Destinies?

No, I didn’t have any luck this time, either.

It’s not in the western forest.

ancb00537

Jeez.

If only you remembered
where you left it, Your Majesty,

I wouldn’t have to work this hard.

ancb00540

Silence. Know your place, Mage.

ancb00541

More importantly, who are those people?

They don’t look like Uruks.

ancb00543

It’s fine. I understand the situation.

You may go, Siduri.

ancb00544

King Gilgamesh? Don’t tell me…

Just as you suspected,
I’m going to make a mess of the throne!

I’m busy!

Too busy to exchange words with you
to get to know you.

ancb00546

Thus, I shall examine your genuineness…through battle!

ancb00553

Prepare yourselves,

Mages of the Observatory!
