【Coupling Column】Vol.13 Fate/Grand Order! Part1!!!







★Gilgamesh x Gudao (male protagonist)


The relationship of the two: The oldest hero and the last master in human history


Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Well, well! For today’s【Coupling Column】, I’ll feature Gilgamesh! Who is Gilgamesh in the first place…?”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “He is the heroic spirit who appears in the various Fate Series and is such a powerful servant, who is clearly called in the original,【One of the Strong】. He is a main character in the oldest hero story,【Epic of Gilgamesh】, written in BC and is said to be the half God and half human. Since he is the oldest hero, he has such an unbelievable setting, where ‘he can use the secret treasures (Noble Phantasm) of all the heroic spirits, who played an active role after Gilgamesh appeared’ because of the fact that ‘Gilgamesh is the oldest heroic spirit so all the heroic spirits after Gilgamesh appeared were copied by him’. The spirit has the energies as much as a couple of the heroic spirits have and it’s a treasure corrector, where ‘he joins the battle, ‘fighting over the holy grail, which can make any wishes come true if they win’, ‘not because he wants the holy grail but because he wants the holy grail which everybody wants to get’. Clearly he’s different from other heroic spirit, he always joins the ‘holy grail battle’. “







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “His personality is, literally, a ‘King’. He shows overbearingness just like how he is and at the same time, he shows ego too. If Gilgamesh means it, the battle is over in an instant but it’s a little childish for the ‘King’ to do towards the common people. In that way, he enjoys the fighters battles. He never means it unless he admits them as his opponent and he is interested in them. He purposely keeps paying no attention, showing vanity. He is the strongest one but not thorough enough. But his powerfulness and self-conceited attitude are super attractive, which makes him the MUST Chara in Fate Series.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “And how about Gudao?”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “As you know! It’s the main character, the oldest master, Fujimaru Ritsuka-Kun, in Fate/Grand Order - Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia, which is now on air! Gudao is a nickname, named by the players before Fujimaru Ritsuka was named. His personality is not depicted in the game but in Anime, he is cheerful and polite and the one who supports Mash, which saves the world.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “It’s not that they relates with each other in the game or Anime… rather, Gudao, a clone of the player, was selected when their (the main character in the game and Gilgamesh) interaction was written in Doujinshi? In Anime version, a younger Gilgamesh (Caster) will appear and he will interact with Gudao even more, I guess! For Gilgamesh, Gudao was the existence who ‘was destined’ to have the world fate. Even though the words and attitudes are strict, he secretly expects his active role.”







★Ozymandias (Fate Series) x Gilgamesh


The relationship of the two: Similar “King” combination




Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Who is Ozymandias?”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “He is a Pharaoh of Egypt New Kingdom 19th Dynasty, Ramesses II. He is said to be the best King who built the reign in all the Pharaohs. As a servant, he boasts his power. He is a child of the Sun God Ra and he thinks that him being the great King means a ‘natural thing’ just like the sun sets in and rises. FYI, Ozymandias’s figures are so perfect so I would like to recommend them to those who are reading this article now.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “His personality is that he understands that he is ‘absolute’ and he also has a side of being attentiveness and rudeness, and arrogance just like Gilgamesh. However, he also has the insight and sharp eye, which are unique to the King, so he tends to treat someone who he admits very generously. Once he comes to like someone, he treats them very special, which is one of his attractions~!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Such a combination, Gilgamesh and Ozymandias, they have an interaction in the main game too…!! And it’s so deep too…!!”








Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Especially as the servant, they are the strongest. But unfortunately, they know ‘I’m the No. 1 and you’re No.2’ so they have a little conflict when they’re not supposed to. Cute, huh? Sometimes, they even start the battle over ‘I’ll show you I’m the better King than you.’… That’s them! Having a good chemistry and ability, they lose by other masters because of their generosity and proud… They are such cute Kings that they are very popular in gag or serious genre…!”




★Merlin (Fate Series) x Gilgamesh


The relationship of the two: Both have a certain “ability”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Who is Merlin?”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “He is a horribly good-looking servant, who is conscious about it. He is a half-human and half-nightmare magician, who once have trained various things and taught how to use the sword to King Arthur, the Saber who you really know. Since he taught Saber how to use the sword, he is very good at it now. He uses magic too. He is good-looking. And he appears a lot in Fate/Grand Order - Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia, which is now on air. He is very conscious about his being good-looking so he sometimes lure women… What a servant…”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “However, his ability is beyond everyone… I’ve been sharing all the characters being strong in this article but Merlin has a special ability that they don’t have.”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “That’s the ‘eyes to see through’. Merlin has ‘the eyes which see through what’s currently going on’ and Gilgamesh (Caster) who appears in Anime has the ‘eyes which see through what will happen in the future’. These two, who have the special abilities, know each other even before they actually met. Therefore, Gilgamesh (Caster) really trusts Merlin and always has him on his side. (I think they will tell us more details about this after Episode 3.)”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yeah~~~ The interaction of these two are so charming, I mean, they have a strong ‘bond’… it’s not the word but they have something between them, which will be depicted in Fate/Grand Order - Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia, which is now on air. Yes, the attraction of this Coupling will be seen in Anime, meaning, I should not say anymore because it will be a spoiler to you! So you guys! I want you to ‘watch’ their relationship, not to ‘hear’!!”







Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yeah…. Fate/Grand Order - Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia is a story which makes us love Gilgamesh. For those who knew him before, you will know another side of him. For those who just knew him, you will see him being serious about reigning as the King. For those who are now reading this article, please watch Fate/Grand Order - Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia until the Final Episode! Enjoy the oldest delightful Kind in human history, Gilgamesh!
