1 As a side note: One of more impressive things about Junichi Suwabe (The seiyuu for Itami in Gate, as well as Archer in Fate/Stay Night, among other roles.) is that he can pronounce English surprisingly well, avoiding the usual issues Japanese have with spoken English.  While the Unlimited Blade Works invocation in Fate/Stay Night is on the stilted side as written, Suwabe's pronunciation of it is amazingly good.

Enclose all spoilers in spoiler tags:

Spoilers which are not properly tagged will be ruthlessly deleted on sight.
Also, I hate unsolicited suggestions and advice. (Even when you think you're being funny.)

At Chizumatic, we take pride in being incomplete, incorrect, inconsistent, and unfair. We do all of them deliberately.
