Back in Shirō's home, Rin explains that he had been chosen as a Master for the Holy Grail War, then explains the basics behind it.

October 26, 2014

The girl introduces herself as Illyasviel von Einzbern, a name which Rin recognizes. She and Archer evaluate Berserker's strength before Archer moves to a farther position so he can attack Berserker from a distance. Berserker then attacks Saber, who is overwhelmed by his brute strength and agility. Archer and Rin try to provide support for Saber, but Berserker constantly winds up being unaffected by their strikes. When the fight moves away into the suburbs, Rin orders Shirō to run, but he remembers his agreement with Saber and instead follows them.

Shirō wakes up in his home, uninjured and Rin sitting at his side. She leaves, but not before telling him that when they meet next time, it will be as enemies. Shirō then finds Saber in the dojo, and she reveals that he has self-healing magical capabilities, explaining the absence of the injuries he sustained in the battle with Berserker. Saber then explains the mechanics of the seven Servants and the advantages and disadvantages of knowing a Servant's real-life identity, then asks that she not reveal her identity to him since he is an inexperienced mage, a request he approves of.

In the present day, Shirō goes to school alone, despite Saber's insistence that she accompany him. At school, he learns from Issei that Mitsuzuri had gone missing the previous day and that she was last seen arguing with Shinji, who is currently absent, with no one able to contact him.

November 30, 2014

After having a lesson with Saber on how to use a sword, Shirō notices that he performed better than during his previous lesson.

During lunchtime, Rin reluctantly forces Shirō to eat with her at the school rooftop. She reveals that she learned about Archer's attack on him and was forced to use a Command Seal to prevent him from further attacking him.

Following the events at the school, Shirō allows Saber to sleep next to his room so she can prevent him from being taken by Caster again. Meanwhile, Shinji arrives at Kirei's church and pleads with him to offer him shelter and protection. However, when he finds out he was the first Master to lose his Servant, he blames the loss on Rider, yelling that she was useless as a Servant.

December 21, 2014

After the battle with Caster and Kuzuki, Shirō and Saber return home. Shirō claims he is fine so as not to worry Saber, but is clearly in pain and off-balance as a result of using projection magic. The next day, he goes to school and finds that Kuzuki is absent due to what is claimed to be an illness. After school, Shirō returns home, where Rin suddenly arrives unannounced. The two proceed to formulate a strategy to deal with Caster. However, their only viable plan is a full-frontal attack against Ryuudou Temple.

The Final Choice

1x12
December 28, 2014

In an attempt to make Shirō selfishly happy, Rin takes Shirō out on a date into town accompanied by Saber, teasing him the whole time to his chagrin, though Shirō turns the tables by making her confess that she spent the night with him out of concern, and ultimately he is not satisfied. While returning home, the three find themselves inside a magical barrier, and they are ambushed by Caster and several water Golems. Caster reveals she has taken Taiga hostage and threatens to kill her unless Shirō hands over his magical circuits to her.

April 4, 2015

Shirō returns home and reminisces about how Kiritsugu's ideals and the Fuyuki City fire ten years ago inspired him to become a hero of justice. Meanwhile, at Kirei's church, Caster visits a captive Saber, who is resisting magical torture. She is then confronted by Kuzuki, who learns that her last two attacks had been of her own free will and that she intends to use the church to obtain the Holy Grail's vessel. After waking up from a dream about Archer, Rin goes to Kirei's church with Archer and finds bloodstains. She concludes that Caster attacked Kirei but he somehow managed to survive. The two then confront Caster and Kuzuki, but when Rin tries to fight them, Archer suddenly defends them from her attacks. Citing Saber's change in alliegance to Caster's side, Archer pledges his allegiance to Caster, revealing that she is the ancient Greek princess Medea and allowing her to stab him with Rule Breaker, which removes Rin's Command Seals.

April 11, 2015

At his home, Shirō tells Rin that he plans on continuing to fight in the Holy Grail War, even without a Servant. She replies that she has no choice but to let him before reaffirming their partnership. While discussing a strategy to defeat Caster and rescue Saber, the two decide to team up with Illyasviel, since Archer had told Rin that Berserker is in fact the ancient Greek hero Heracles, which might give them an advantage against Caster. Meanwhile, Caster recounts the time when she was summoned for the Holy Grail War by another magus, only to be unsatisfied by his inefficient method of acquiring mana for her. After Caster asked that she be allowed to acquire mana herself, the magus realized he could not trust a magic user better than himself. As a result, he contacted Kirei and asked for another Servant, but Kirei told him to dispatch Caster first before making another Master-Servant pact.

April 18, 2015

Ten years ago, in the aftermath of the Fourth Holy Grail War, Illyasviel had a vision of her mother Irisviel, who claimed her husband and Illyasviel's father, a participant in the war, betrayed them by refusing to accept the Holy Grail when it presented itself to him. At first, she refused to believe it, but realized the truth when her father did not return home. As time passed, she stumbled upon a room in her home, containing numerous homunculi that were created to serve Illyasviel's purpose, only to fail in their missions. Realizing she too is a homunculus from their dying messages, Illyasviel became disillusioned with her life. Later on, she met her current maids, who assisted her in summoning Berserker. However, she initially did not want him, resolving to participate and win the Holy Grail War by herself.

April 26, 2015

As Shinji's Servant tears out Illyasviel's heart from her corpse, Shirō and Rin confront him and Shinji himself. When Rin threatens to kill Shinji, the two are forced to leave, but not before Shinji reveals his Servant's name to be Gilgamesh. While burying Illyasviel, Rin confronts Shirō about his ideals and tells him that he needs to prioritize himself over others, otherwise he will break. He refutes this by telling her of the time Kiritsugu rescued him, which caused him to admire him. However, Rin tells him that it is still wrong to value the lives of others over his own, citing that someone who was spared from a terrible tragedy has to live out their life to the fullest and that wishing for the happiness of others is no different from a machine.

May 3, 2015

Shirō and Rin confront Caster and Kuzuki, who engage them in battle. Meanwhile, Lancer overwhelms Archer with his attacks, after which Archer mocks his sense of loyalty and honor, thus infuriating him. As a result, Lancer tries to use his powerful Noble Phantasm to strike him down, but Archer is able to barely counter it with a magical barrier, which expends most of his strength in the process and destroys the church. After praising Lancer's power, Archer reveals he staged his betrayal of Rin so he could take advantage of Caster when she had her guard down, prompting Lancer to leave. Back at the church, Shirō and Rin are both overwhelmed by their opponents, but Archer suddenly appears and ambushes Kuzuki, firing several swords at him. Caster shields Kuzuki from the swords and is impaled herself.

May 10, 2015

Returning to Shirō's home, he, Rin, and Saber all decide to avenge Emiya and stop Gilgamesh by destroying the Holy Grail once and for all. Through the use of familiar spirits, Rin deduces that the Holy Grail is being summoned at Ryuudou Temple. She then explains that Shinji, the only other magus participating in the Holy Grail War, would be the only viable candidate as a substitute vessel, as it was apparent Illysaviel was supposed to turn into the Lesser Grail at the end of the war. While devising a strategy to defeat Gilgamesh, Rin realizes Emiya was the only one able to perfectly counter him, since he had the ability to summon a duplicate of any kind of weapon. She then concludes that Shirō needs to master Unlimited Blade Works so he too can match up against Gilgamesh.

May 16, 2015

Saber risks disappearing, since she is without a Master to anchor her to the world, but defends Shirō from Archer, stating that she swore an oath to protect him and that it remains unchanged. However, she is overwhelmed by Archer, forcing Shirō to intervene and take over in the fight. Rin takes advantage of Archer's distraction to form a Master-Servant pact with Saber, which she accepts, therefore making her Rin's new Servant. Fully restored, she subdues Archer, who mocks her for her wish of rectifying her legacy. He then casts Reality Marble, a spell that creates an alternate reality. Shirō, Rin, and Saber are subsequently transported to Unlimited Blade Works, Archer's Noble Phantasm, which is an alternate reality consisting of a barren wasteland filled with swords and floating gears. Archer creates several swords and fires them at her, but Shirō summons a sword of his own and destroys them, dissipating Unlimited Blade Works as a result.

May 23, 2015

Shirō, Saber, and Lancer arrive at Illysaviel's villa, where they are met by Archer, who explains the true nature of his summoning: Rin had not in fact summoned him by chance, and the catalyst for his summoning was actually the pendant he carries, identical to the one Rin used to save Shirō. While Lancer runs off to retrieve Rin, Saber demands to know why Archer is so intent on killing Shirō. Archer responds that, like Shirō, he aspired to become a hero of justice and actually fulfilled that ideal, but became disillusioned by it and became a Servant so he could rectify it. He then forces Saber to reveal her back-story to Shirō: her true identity is King Arthur, who hoped to use the Holy Grail to undo her decision to become the king of Britain, as she believes it was her rule that eventually resulted in the country's destruction. When she then remarks that she and Archer are different in terms of how much they were able to live up to their ideals, Archer elaborates that when he became a Guardian in order to become a true hero of justice, he became disillusioned after he was forced to take lives in order to save many more.

May 30, 2015

Shirō and Emiya begin their battle, with Shirō finding that while he is only barely able to hold off Emiya's attacks, he is slowly becoming stronger the longer he clashes with Emiya. Meanwhile, Kirei prepares to take Rin's heart against Shinji's protests. However, Lancer, mortally wounded but still alive, fatally stabs Kirei. Shinji, on the verge of insanity, takes this opportunity to try to rape Rin again, only to be chased off by Lancer, who lightly wounds him. After freeing Rin, he collapses to the ground and laments how he would have liked for Rin to be his Master. Both Rin and Lancer bid farewell to each other, and as Rin leaves, Lancer sets a fire to destroy both himself and Kirei's corpse. Back at the main entrance, Shirō and Emiya continue to battle, with Emiya activating Unlimited Blade Works and slowly gaining the upper hand.

Shirō and Emiya continue their battle, with Emiya chastising Shirō for continuing to pursue his ideal and declaring that he will remove every trace of him in existence. However, as the battle continues, Emiya begins to realize that Shirō, being himself, will never give up and that it is pointless to defeat him now. Finally, as he explains the beauty he saw in his ideal, Shirō's spirit begins to overwhelm Unlimited Blade Works, and he rushes Emiya. Emiya tries to react, but he becomes distracted by a flashback of Kiritsugu's last moments and is wounded by Shirō, just as Rin arrives. With this, Emiya admits defeat and allows Shirō, Rin, and Saber to escape, before being impaled by three swords fired from Gilgamesh's Noble Phantasm. Declaring his hatred for fakes, Gilgamesh fires more swords at Shirō and Emiya, but Emiya pushes Shirō out of the way and seemingly dies after taking the full blow of the attack.

June 13, 2015

Shirō and Rin plan to breach Ryuudou Temple and rescue Shinji while Saber fights Gilgamesh and destroys the Holy Grail. Saber reveals she can only use her Noble Phantasm, Excalibur, once before fading, since Rin cannot supply her with enough mana due to her sharing it with Shirō. At Ryuudou Temple, Shirō and Rin observe Shinji's mutated form and a torrent of black ooze pouring out from the Holy Grail, pooling around Shinji and forming a lake. They are then confronted by Gilgamesh, who elaborates on his intentions and explains that there are too many people in the modern era without significance or purpose. At the main gate, Saber instead comes across Assassin, who is still guarding the temple despite Caster's death, as it is his anchor to the world.

With Shirō largely incapacitated by Ea's effects, Gilgamesh mocks his ideals. Shirō admits the flaws in his idealism, but reaffirms his dream nonetheless. As Gilgamesh attempts to finish him off, Saber arrives and blocks his attack, but is ordered by Shirō to save Rin. Having an epiphany about the true nature of his powers, Shirō activates Unlimited Blade Works and uses its infinite number of replica swords to counter Gilgamesh's Noble Phantasm. Meanwhile, Saber approaches the Holy Grail and recognizes it as a corrupted, improperly-summoned Servant called Angra Mainyu. She locates Rin, who uses a Command Seal and orders her to destroy the Grail with Excalibur as she is being consumed by Angra Mainyu. When Rin loses hope of surviving, Emiya's voice reprimands her for giving up, and a barrage of swords strikes Angra Mainyu, freeing her. With Rin free and using her final Command Seal to augment her attack, Saber unleashes Excalibur and destroys Angra Mainyu's manifestation and the Holy Grail.

June 27, 2015

Two years after the events of the Fifth Holy Grail War, Shirō and Rin are still dating and living together in an apartment in London while they both study under the Mages Association at the Clock Tower, with Shirō being Rin's apprentice as protection for her. However, he is still struggling with following his ideals without following the same path as Emiya. One day, Rin has a duel with fellow classmate and neighbor, Luviagelita Edelfelt, who repeatedly flirts with an oblivious Shirō, and loses, much to her chagrin. Afterwards, she and Shirō talk about his invitation to officially join the Mages Association, which conflicts with his ideals. One morning, Rin decides to take Shirō to Glastonbury, the final resting place of King Arthur, so he can say goodbye to Saber.
