SPOILER Summary/Synopsis

King Gilgamesh arrives at the Chaldea residence in Uruk to personally give Mash and Ritsuka their new mission. That take a covered wagon to the Persian Gulf with Gilgamesh in the back. When they stop for lunch, Gilgamesh has them tell him tales of their adventures. He finds them boring as he wasn’t there, but he acknowledges they had a great journey.

The trio eventually arrives at the observatory at the Persian Gulf, where they load large jars of water onto the wagon. When they are done, Mash and Ritsuka take a break by the sea. Dr. Romani and Da Vinci warn them of incoming danger. Mash erects a shield as Enkidu comes in rapidly and attacks. From Chaldea, Romani recognizes Enkidu’s attack style as being similar to Gilgamesh’s.

Mash is defeated, but Gilgamesh comes in and saves her. Enkidu and Gilgamesh engage in combat. Mash informs Gilgamesh that this Enkidu is a fake. Gilgamesh is impressed with how close to real person fake Enkidu is. As their fight continues, Enkidu becomes enraged. Enkidu and Gilgamesh appear to activate their Noble Phantasms. A vision causes Enkidu to abort an attack at the last second and retreat.

Mash thanks Gilgamesh for saving her. He responds that he had nothing to do with it as Enkidu could have easily killed all of them. He then orders their return to Uruk. Meanwhile, Enkidu is in anguish and having electronic visions of time spent with Gilgamesh.

Gilgamesh and Enkidu

Hilariously, the first time I heard of Gilgamesh and Enkidu was via the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Darmok”. So it is kind of fun getting these two friend’s updated story.

The battle between Enkidu and Gilgamesh was fun. I don’t think that the anime series has stated that both of these characters are Servants. But it was fun seeing them both about to go full bore.

I’ve said this before, but it is also fun seeing Caster Gilgamesh in this go-around. He’s such a bastard in Fate/stay night and in Fate/Zero . But for Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia 05, it is nice seeing him be arrogant, but still good king.

Another Flashback

Once again, Mash’s story lacks emotional impact because the earlier Singularity stories weren’t animated. I appreciate the effort though.

I did like seeing Francis Drake (Rider) in the flashback. But then I’m fond of her from the Fate/Grand Order game.
