A symbolic "Bridge" in Fate/Zero.
Nitobe Inazoh(author of "Bushidho") who is famous in Japan said "I wish to be a bridge across the Pacific" when Japan was Meiji and Taisho eras(about 19 century).
In that context, "Bridge" is a symbol of the point between values and values.
In Fate/Zero, Saver's values(philosophy), Kiritsugu's philosophy, many Masters and Servants philosophy, there are a lot of values, and those are crossing each other at Holy Grail War.
So, "Bridge" is symbol of this Animation.
Sometimes, I will try to introduce a critical essay(about Anime) in Japan to other language people. Thanks.
