Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup: Cover Boy Shiro

September 20, 2014

This Saturday post is the weekly Type-Moon news in addition to the regular APB post on Sunday. If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on the Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup drop me a line via email or Twitter.

  • Never enough Kalafina
    Just in case you missed it the opening to the Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works TV series will be “Ideal White” by Mashiro Ayano and the ending theme will be “believe” by Kalafina. Also for some reason Shiro will be on the cover of the single for Ideal White. I love Shiro and he is the protagonist but I am SHOCKED it is not Rin on the cover.
  • Missing the Call
    I am really going to miss not being able to see the sneak peak of the first episode of the Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works TV series on the 28th.
  • Record of Holy Grail War
    I am really full of envy.
  • Witch Craft Works
    Crunchyroll will be streaming the Unlimited Blade Works TV series. Thank goodness.
  • If it Wasn’t for Bad Luck, I Wouldn’t Have no Luck at All
    The latest ad for the Unlimited Blade Works TV series stars Lancer.
  • A Stripping Chibi Kiara Sessyoin is Funny
    She just is.
  • A New Beginning
    Even more of the new Fate/Hollow Ataraxia opening. Now all we need is an English release!

  • No Love for New York
    Good News: There is going to be a US Premiere of the Fate/Stay Night UBW TV series on September 28th. Bad news: It is only in Los Angeles. Since no one if flying me out to see that I will just have to watch it with all the hoi polloi on October 4th. Until then everyone can enjoy the trailer in English.
  • 2wei! Another Day
    Sentai Filmworks licensed Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! Curious to see how much they play up Chloe over Bazett on the cover.
  • Heart to Heart
    Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya is breaking up the 2wei! in two seasons with  Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆ ​Illya Zwei Hertz! coming out in 2015.
  • For All the Rin Fans
    The new Fate/Stay Night UBW TV series is clearly going to deliver.
  • Will they Make More than 10?
    Another look at the Nendoroids for Fate/Stay Night Rider and Archer. Hopefully they won’t make micro batches of the Rider figure and delay the Archer figure forever.
  • Soccer Saber
    If you ever wanted to know what the cast of Fate/Hollow Ataraxia looked like playing Association football.
  • Passion for Purple
    A little treat for all the Sakura and Rider fans with the release of Vita edition of Fate/Hollow Ataraxia.
  • King of Commercials
    The spotlight is on the King of Knights for the new Fate/Stay Night UBW TV commercial.
  • Fate/Fried Chicken
    Lawson has a tasty Fate/Stay Night promotion going on right now.

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA 2wei! #010: Himatsubushi-hen

September 11, 2014


hisui_icon_4040 It seems that I have finished another season of Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya. I have to say I’m glad that this season was only 10 episodes as it gives me some time to rest before I dive into episode reviews of Unlimited Blade Works in only a few weeks.

Overall this season felt a lot more segmented when it came to fan service and action. The first season distinctly had points of extreme fan service and periods of exciting action but something about this season felt a little more like A (like the A in T&A) episodes mostly focused on A and B (for battle) instead spent their time giving you B. I suppose that was a good thing for people who really wanted one or the other but I did like the smoother mix in the last season. It did not help that some of those early yuri tease scenes were a bit gratuitous. If I never see another porn kiss in this series my life will the all the richer for that.

But this season finally let Bazett have her time to shine so if the show never does anything good again it at least did one very good thing. It is one thing to have a fan following due to your appearance in the visual novel but once you’re in an anime your potential fan base increases ten fold. We might actually see the Master of the Multi-Reverse Punch get some love in the form of figures and guest appearances in the future. It could save her from being forgotten in the Caster heap.
