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.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works #018 – I Endorse this Ship

May 10, 2015

hisui_icon_4040 I know that Irisviel and Saber have always been a popular pairing in the fandom ever since Fate/Zero and I can’t really complain about it as a ship. Compared to a lot of other ships at least these two have some sort of emotional connection that would allow them to feasibly have a romantic relationship or at least a sexual attraction as opposed to “I just think it would be hot if they boinked.” The thing is I realized that I never got into the ship mostly because in my heart I already had what I felt was a superior match-up. Rin and Saber is my far preferred pairing. They just seem to have a bit more chemistry but that is almost certainly a matter of preference as opposed to fact. That is also a little more obvious attraction between Saber and Rin during the visual novel but Rin’s bisexual nature is also a lot more pronounced in the game for obvious reasons. Fate/Stay Night is a porn game when push comes to shove. While it is almost surely more there for titillation purposes than increased depth of character it still lends a bit more credence to there being a possibility of a relationship.

I won’t deny that I also just think they are aesthetically attractive together but I also try to think about some amount of personal compatibility between the characters on top of that.

I would also say that my primary ship is Shiro and Saber but most people would find that ship boring, and possibly the romantic equivalent of nails on the chalkboard, but such is my taste. I’m just saying if I had to go for a yuri pairing this is my choice hands down. I am in luck because this is the episode where that coupling really gains even more traction here than it did in Fate.
