Day 22: “Favorite Weapon Used in an Anime”
Looking back on past anime that I have watched, there are so many characters that have weapons, yet none compete with Gilgamesh’s array of weapons.
Gilgamesh is an extremely powerful character in the Fate series (Fate/Stay Night is my favorite). He is able to chop down his foes with whatever sword he chooses. While all of his attacks prove to be powerful my favorite one that he uses is the black sword, Ea. The sword has the ability to use atmospheric gases to its advantage. The sword sets off a blast powerful enough to disintegrate a city. Another pro to Ea is that it is impossible to replicate the sword by tracing it, which proves handy battling the other competitors in the Holy Grail. The sword is definitely the most powerful one in his collection.
Synopsis: After a mysterious inferno kills his family, Shirou is saved and adopted by Kiritsugu Emiya, who teaches him the ways of magic and justice. One night, years after Kiritsugu’s death, Shirou is cleaning at school, when he finds himself caught in the middle of a deadly encounter between two superhumans known as Servants. During his attempt to escape, the boy is caught by one of the Servants and receives a life-threatening injury. Miraculously, he survives, but the same Servant returns to finish what he started. In desperation, Shirou summons a Servant of his own, a knight named Saber. The two must now participate in the Fifth Holy Grail War, a battle royale of seven Servants and the mages who summoned them, with the grand prize being none other than the omnipotent Holy Grail itself. Fate/stay night follows Shirou as he struggles to find the fine line between a hero and a killer, his ideals clashing with the harsh reality around him. Will the boy become a hero like his foster father, or die trying?
