(Rider) I am asking you —

[2]
(Rider) Are you completely sure that you are my Master?

[3]
(Waver) Huh?

[4]
(Waver) Yea — Yeah, that’s right!
(Waver) I-I-I’m y-yo-you — I am your Master! W-Waver!
(Waver) Waver Velvet!
(Waver) I’m your Master!


Page 4

[1]
(Rider) Good, that completes our contract.
(Rider) Now boy, take me to a library at once.
(Waver) Huh?

[2]
(Rider) What, I, mean —
(Waver) Hiii — !

[3]
(Rider) is books. I want books.

[4]
(Waver) Am I so scared that I can’t even stand up?

[5]
(Rider) If you’re another one of those magi, then you should have prepared a library or two, right?
(Rider) Take me there. We need to prepare for my campaign.
(Waver) C-Campaign…?

[2]
(Waver) If you’re looking for books, that place will have it — probably.
(Rider) Hmn.

[3]
(Waver) !

[4]
(Waver) Guess I won’t have to worry about anyone seeing him if he’s in spirit form…


Page 6

[1]
(Waver) A genius like myself, displaying such disgraceful behaviour…

[2]
(Waver) Sigh…
(Waver) …Why did it end up like this?

[3]
(Waver) No, the initiative lies with me.

[4]
(Waver) The Grail will grant the desires of not only the victorious Master, but also the Servant.
(Waver) And the Servant cannot remain in this world without a supply of prana from the Master.
(Waver) The interests of both sides coincide.


Page 7

[1]
(Waver) Plus, the Master has the Command Spells.

[2]
(Waver) Three, and only three, chances to exercise an absolute command.
(Waver) No matter what the command is, if a Command Spell is used, the Servant cannot go against it.

[3]
(Waver) This is what decides the relationship between Master and Servant.

[4]
(Waver) When he comes back, I’ll let him know just who’s in control here.


Page 8

[1]
(Waver) Hiii–!


Page 9

[1]
(Rider) Hmn.

[3]
(Waver) You idiot!
(Waver) Stupid, stupid idiot – !

[4]
(Waver) What were you thinking?! Why did you smash through the shutters?!
(Waver) Why didn’t you turn into spirit form like when you entered?!

[5]
(Rider) I can’t carry this out if I stay in spirit form, now can I?


Page 10

[1]
(Waver) Get a move on!
(Waver) Let’s go! We have to run!
(Rider) How unsightly. Stop panicking like I’m some thief.

[2]
(Waver) How does this not make you a thief?!

[3]
(Rider) There is a great difference!!
(Rider) An uncouth night thief would fade into the shadows and take flight.
(Rider) Marching forth with a song of victory – that is the plunder of the King of Conquerors!

[4]
(Waver) — God!


Page 11

[1]
(Waver) This is fine, right?!

[2]
(Waver) So disappear! Now! Right away!
(Rider) Well, then I leave the burden to you. Don’t drop them, all right?

[3]
(Waver) Oh, God — why…
(Waver) Did it end up like this–?!

[5]
(Waver) Pant
(Waver) Pant

(Waver) Pant
(Waver) Pant

[2]
(Waver) Homer’s poem?
(Waver) And… a world map? Why?

[6]
(Waver) Hey, Rider.
(Waver) When you said you need to prepare for a campaign…

[7]
(Rider) You cannot begin a war without maps.
(Rider) Isn’t that obvious?


Page 13

[1]
(Rider) Seems like the entire world has already been revealed to the furthest reaches — apparently, it’s even closed in a ball…
(Waver) The moment a Heroic Spirit is summoned, the Grail should grant him enough knowledge to function in that era without difficulties.
(Waver) So, why would he go so far as acting like a thief just to get some maps?
(Rider) I see. So a circular land becomes like this when drawn on paper…

[2]
(Rider) So… boy. Where is Macedon and Persia?

[3]
(Waver-aside) Hmph…
(Waver) ………

[7]
(Rider) Hwahahahah — !!


Page 14

[1]
(Rider) Hahahah — ! So small!
(Rider) The great earth across which I dashed — and this is it!

(Rider) Hah! Excellent!

(Rider) I had been somewhat worried when I heard that this was an era where there were no longer any unknown lands……
(Rider) But I cannot complain if it is so very vast!

(Rider) Good, good! This makes my heart race!

[2]
(Rider) ……So, boy, where are we now on this map?

[4]
(Rider) Ooh. The opposite side of this round earth, huh…
(Rider) Good, that is also a thrill.
(Rider) Now the compass is set.

[5]
(Waver) Compass?

[6]
(Rider) First, I’ll go halfway round the world.
(Rider) West, ever West, capturing all the countries I pass by.


Page 15

[1]
(Rider) In that way, I will make my triumphant return to Macedon, and all the people of my home land will celebrate my resurrection.

[2]
(Rider) Heh heh, makes your heart pound, doesn’t it?

[3]
(Waver) What do you think you’re here for?!
(Waver) It’s the Holy Grail War!
(Waver) The Grail!

[4]
(Rider) Isn’t something like that just the beginning?
(Rider) Why do I have to go out of my way to —

[5]
(Rider) Ah, right. Speaking of the Grail, there’s something I should ask first.


Page 16

[1]
(Rider) How will you use the Grail, boy?

[2]
(Waver) Wha… Why are you so formal now? What are you going to do, asking me that?
(Rider) That’s something I have to make sure of.
(Rider) If you also wish to obtain the world, does that not make you my bitter enemy?

[3]
(Rider) There is no need for two tyrants.


Page 17

[2]
(Waver) Stu — that’s ridiculous — !
(Waver) Obtain the world…

[3]
(Waver) Heh, I have no interest in something so vulgar!

[4]
(Rider) Oh? Are you saying that, as a man, you have a greater desire than ruling the world?
(Rider) Interesting. Let me hear it.

[5]
(Waver) M-My wish…
(Waver) is simply an earnest and true appraisal.
(Waver) I’ll change the thoughts of those at the Clock Tower who had never recognised my talent…


Page 18

[1]
(Rider) Tiny!!

[2]
(Rider) So narrow!
(Rider) So small!

[3]
(Rider) What foolishness!
(Rider) The great wish you would wager a battle on is nothing more than to show your own value?


Page 19

[1]
(Rider) And you are my Master?
(Rider) Good grief, how wretched!
(Waver) Ah — uu —

[2]
(Rider) If you want the respect of others so much, use the power of the Grail to grow another thirty centimetres.

[3]
(Rider) If your gaze rises that much, you can probably look down on most people.
(Waver) You…
(Waver) Just a Servant…
(Waver) Nothing more than an attendant, and…!
(Waver) You little —

[4]
(Waver) I announce, to the Command Spell —
(Waver) In accordance with the laws of the Holy Grail —
(Waver) To this one, my Servant —


Page 20

[1]
(Waver) To Rider…
(Waver) …Do what?

[2]
(Waver) As a Master, losing the Command Spells is the same as a decisive defeat.
(Rider) Geez…
(Waver) The whip with which I strike this beast can only be swung three times.

[3]
(Waver) To use a valuable Command Spell in a place like this…

[4]
(Waver) I’m being absurd.

[5]
(Waver) As long as we acquire the Grail, I have no complaints.
(Waver) I don’t care what you do after that.
(Waver) You can fly wherever you want – whether that’s Macedon or the South Pole.


Page 21

[1]
(Rider) Hmph.

[2]
(Waver) ………

[3]
(Waver) In any case.
(Waver) You do know what takes precedence, don’t you?
(Waver) You’re going to fight seriously in the Grail War, right?

[4]
(Rider) Good grief – yes, I know.

[5]
(Rider) As a start, I’ll just have to beat down six Heroic Spirits — right?
(Rider) It will be quite troublesome, but certainly, nothing can begin without the Grail.

[6]
(Rider) No need to worry. I will acquire the treasure in question properly.

[7]
(Waver) ……You sound like you have quite a bit of confidence.
(Waver) But what chances of victory do you really have?


Page 22

[1]
(Rider) So basically, you want to see my power?
(Waver) Right. I-Isn’t that obvious?
(Waver) You have to prove whether or not I can trust you.

[2]
(Rider) Hmph —

(Rider) With this one stroke, the King of Conquerors, Alexander, claims supremacy —


Page 24

[2]
(Waver) Waah — !

(Rider) Just like that, I had cut down the knot on the shafts, and obtained this.

[2]
(Rider-top) It’s an offering the Gordian King dedicated to Zeus.
(Rider-bottom) …It’s most likely because of this thing’s reputation that I was placed in the Class of Rider.


Page 29

[3]
(Waver) This is a Noble Phantasm —
(Waver) — The “symbols” which truly make a hero – affined armaments and tools.
(Waver) The embodiment of the Heroic Spirit, and the trump card of the Servant!

[4]
(Rider) But this is only the beginning.
(Rider) The Noble Phantasm which I truly rely on is another.


Page 30

[2]
(Rider) Hey now, boy.
(Rider) Even if you look so astounded, we haven’t even started yet.

[3]
(Rider) If you want the Grail quickly, then hurry up and look for where the enemy is.
(Rider) Then I can promptly trample over them.

[4]
(Rider) Until then, I will relieve my boredom by looking at these maps —

[5]
(Rider) — Well, you don’t have any problems with that, right?
(Waver) — That’s right…

(Waver-rightmost) — This Servant is someone who, as soon as he succeeded to the throne of Macedon at age 20,
(Waver) Led ancient Greece in an invasion, plunging into Persia.
(Waver-centre) After that, even Egypt and west India became part of his sweeping conquest. The great hero who accomplished the great exploit of conquering the East in barely less than ten years —
(Waver-leftmost) — Alexander, 「the King of Conquerors」.
