Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works #020 – A New Meme is Born

May 24, 2015

hisui_icon_4040 Well, it seems clear that Shiro’s infamous line of “People Die If They Are Killed” just might have gained a little brother. I interpreted the line as “Your facts might be correct but the conclusion you reach with those facts can be faulty” but that does not roll off the tongue. I saw someone with a decent grasp of Japanese interpret the line like this. It all comes down to the simple fact that while Shiro agrees that Archer is neither lying nor misrepresenting the facts of his augment he cannot come to the same conclusion as his future alter ego.

I’m hoping what ever the actual line is they clean it up the official release. I feel this is just one of the problems with speed subbing. The official translators don’t have that much time to get these episodes out on time so a few awkward lines are going to pop up here and there.

But it is sort of past the point of simple fixes. It is just destined to be one of those lines that will continually come up in conversations about the writing in anime. Oh well. That is one way for the series to stay a part of the conversation of anime fandom.

  • Dinosaur Lords
    Yes, you heard me. And yes, it is the Middle Ages plus dinos.
  • LEGO Backstory
    This CG animated short tells the story of how LEGO came to be. The acting isn’t great, but it is still worth a watch.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works #019 – I Didn’t See Aigis or Metis Anywhere

May 16, 2015

hisui_icon_4040 I suppose I should have seen this coming. There is no way they could have just jumped into the Archer vs. Shiro fight. This is a show where everyone monologues at each other before, during, and after they fight. To assume anything else would happen would be silly. But this episode is really all about the little details. Overall much of this plays out like it does in the visual novel but the main difference in this episode even more than the others is all the small nods to other bits of the universe. Most of them will pass by anyone not neck-deep in the Nasuverse, and they even make sure that they don’t draw attention to themselves, but if you know what to look for there are some really nice Easter eggs for the hardcore fans here.
