Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majū Sensen Babylonia ep. 21

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis

Ritsuka awakens to see a relieved Mash. They are joined by Jaguar Man and Quetzalcoatl. After providing Mash and Ritsuka with some refreshment, Jaguar Man and Quetzalcoatl escort Mash and Ritsuka to the now deserted Babylonia wall. After some final words, Quetzalcoatl hugs Ritsuka, then she and Jaguar Man dissolve into energy and vanish.

Mash and Ritsuka walk to Uruk and return to their old residence. There, they find Merlin and Ishtar waiting for them. Merlin makes some tea and has a verbal joust with Romani. Ishtar informs them that Ereshkigal is resting in the Underworld. Further, it will take a long time for the place to recover. Ishtar states that she will remain in this era until the first Uruk dynasty ends. Merlin states that he will be returning to Avalon. He explains that he’s a fan of Ritsuka’s work. Before vanishing, he gives Ritsuka a flower to do with as he wills.

Meanwhile, Gilgamesh in his Archer form, has a chat with Enkidu. In the present, Gilgamesh, in his Caster form, greets Ritsuka, Mash, and Ishtar when they arrive at the ruined palace. He explains how he was able to assume his Archer form in the Underworld. Gilgamesh then tells them the tale of his quest to seek the mystic herb of immortality.

Before Mash and Ritsuka return to Chaldea, Gilgamesh gives them a Holy Grail. After they return home, Chaldea goes on alert. He informs the staff that they now have to deal with Solomon’s Singularity.

Thoughts/Review

And so this series comes to an end with Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia 21. But it ends with the notion that maybe, just maybe, they’ll animate the final singularity.

Wrap Up

There’s not a ton to remark on regarding Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia 21. The episode was to basically provide a bit of aftermath wrap up stuff. However, I do appreciate when a series takes the time to do this.

After being MIA in the boss fight, Jaguar Man returns. Apparently she rescued Quetzalcoatl. I suppose the reason they couldn’t go into the city is so that we could get a more intimate farewell to them, primarily Quetzalcoatl. Shame we didn’t get to see Quetzalcoatl “thank” Merlin.

Speaking of Merlin, he gets his farewell in the presence of Ishtar. I did get a kick out of his verbal sparing with Romani.

As to Ishtar, I suppose her flying off, then later dissolving marked the passage of time. She mentioned hanging around until the first Uruk dynasty ends. But maybe that ended shortly after Mash and Ritsuka left. (Update: Blog reader Gore pointed out that although the fade scene was quick, it was in fact Gilgamesh, not Ishtar who faded. And Gore is correct. Thanks for the correction!)

Finally, there’s Gilgamesh. I liked that we got an explanation on how he went from his Caster form to his more well known Archer form. What I didn’t understand was the scene with him and Enkidu. On one hand, it seemed like a flashback. After all, Uruk was not destroyed. On the other hand, their conversation seemed to be about current events.

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

In the end, Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia 21 was a nice conclusion to this series. And hopefully, they’ll do another anime TV series for the Solomon singularity. I’ll write a series review later.

    This flashback shows at that time reason why Gil act like a tyrant before his journey for immortality as Enkidu question him why Gil help his people kill monster despite Gil himself treated his subject horribly. Gil say reason to allow human hate god and break free from God rules and Gil take upon himself to be scapegoat to ensure human break free from the God. Afterall god assign Gil to be king to ensure God have rules over humanity through Gilgamesh. That taken from Fate Extra CCC.

  2. Gore says:

    Um, I can’t find Ishtar fading away at any point. Looks alive and well to me. Gil certainly faded though, perhaps you mistook that for Ishar disappearing?

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Oh…you are right. It is Gilgamesh. I guess ’cause Ishtar was flying overhead earlier, my mind associated the fade with her. But odd that they didn’t show more of Gilgamesh fading.
