As rushed as parts of this battle might have been it should have been clear that Julian and Beatrice are far too powerful to be defeated in a single episode. The previously ever-present Angelica has been neutralized, Miyu and her iteration of Shiro have been freed, and Darius’ true face was revealed. Accomplishments have been made. Julian’s true level of threat has been made clear but also he has been shown to be vulnerable. Both sides have retreated to lick their wounds before their final confrontation.
If you asked me before today I would have assumed the last leg of the story would have been concluded in either the next season of the TV series or 2 more seasons at most. But it seems the rather long flashback arc is not just getting its own season but in fact a rather unexpected movie.
Unless of course, they make Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA 4ier¡¡¡
