Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA 2wei! #007: Sister Act 3 – Breaking the Habit

August 21, 2014

hisui_icon_4040 As much as we like to pretend to be above such things our psychology proves that time and time again at our base programming we are pack animals. That does not mean we are slaves to these impulses. We are still creatures of reason. It just means it is just as unwise to ignore that these impulses exist as it is to constantly give into them. That means that we tend to organize ourselves into hierarchical groups whenever we are around each other be it adding a new friend to a circle of buddies or a new coworker at the office. Families tend to be a little more subtle about this power dynamic but mostly because such jockeying within the food chain of a household tends to be either instantly determined by birth or build up over the years. The only real exception to that rule is when a new family member is added to the mix. This is one of the few times a person can earn or lose their place in the household so quickly.

As the newly adopted daughter of the von Einzbern family Chloe has one chance to determine who is boss. She clearly can’t overtake Irisviel. Humans can not pass into the realm of the gods. Kiritsugu is just too much of a stone cold bad ass for the discount Archer to overtake so him so the only point of entry on the top is to try to sneak in above Illya.

Who will be on top when the dust settles? Will Shiro always be the bottom of the totem pole? (Spoilers: yes.)

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA 2wei! #006: The Battle of Lokai and Bele

August 15, 2014

hisui_icon_4040 So … The Measure of Man. The Nature of a Hero: A Fate/Stay Night Panel could have gone … better. I finished the panel but the laptop chose not to work with the projector in panel room 6. Which is funny because the laptop worked fine with the projector in panel room 7 . That means that I forgot to record the audio for the panel. If you really wanted to know what the panel was like I will post the slides and my notes in this week’s Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup. To everyone who did attend the panel I hope you were able to get something out of my troubled lecture. Hopefully the next time I run that panel it won’t have another crazy problem.

This is the episode where the whole Kuro arc finally reaches it climax. We finally learn what is the whole deal with the mysterious other Illya, why this timeline is different from Fate/Stay Night Classic formula™, and who is the baddest mother in the Type-Moon universe. (Just talking about Irisviel.) But what does this all have to do with blocked ley lines and class cards?

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA 2wei! #005: Bath Time Fun for Everyone

August 6, 2014

\hisui_icon_4040 Before we begin I would like to mention to anyone attending Otakon that I will be running a panel about the themes of Fate/Stay Night on Saturday. The panel is called “The Measure of a Man. The Nature of a Hero: A Fate/Stay Night Panel (18+)” and it will be in panel room 6 at 1 AM. I have a feeling that most of the people reading this post before the panel takes place will not be people attending Otakon but I figured it was worth a shot. If nothing else I will give a little report on how the panel went next week in this same space.

But enough shameless plugging, let’s get to the fact of the matter: nakedness. There is quite a bit of nakedness. Some of it is quite impressive. Some of it is quite BL. The rest of it is sort of creepy. They even manage to sneak in some story. But mostly near the end. Because that is how 2wei! rolls.
