Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works #014 – All in Good Time

April 14, 2015

Now your fucked

hisui_icon_4040 Holy Shit.

There have been a few new scenes that were not in the visual novel before this point. They were pretty impressive and I talked them up when they appeared. Rin vs Illya made it into my Top 7 Type-Moon Moments for 2014. There was the much improved fight in episode ten. But overall this were minor tweaks and visual improvements. They were more signs of a good adaptation as opposed to clear indicators that this would be something more than the original. But I held out hope that this season would give us something more than that and did it ever. If nothing else it did hear a bit of grumbling about what they were going to do with this season. It seemed like they were over half way done with the story but still had a little less than half the series to go. What could they do other than the worst case scenario of dragging things out to fill in the time?

This episode is almost entirely new material. It is not radically different scenes. It is not totally going off in a new direction. Stray Servant was not introduced and Zouken Matou summoned True Assassin in the middle of Unlimited Blade Works. But everything here is either important scenes that happened off-screen or answered questions the fanbase always wondered about but were never fully answered in the visual novel. It is enough that I will have to change my Themes of Fate/Stay Night panel now that we have seen Caster’s original master.

If nothing else convinced visual novel purists that this was worth watching it would be this episode. It also makes anyone watching wonder what is coming next.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works #013 – Break Your Heart

April 5, 2015

hisui_icon_4040 When we last left our heroes it was not looking that good for them. Saber has been captured. Caster controls a tremendous amount of mana, Ryuudou Temple, and the Fuyuki Church. Caster also has Assassin and Souichirou Kuzuki as strong physical attackers as part of her alliance on top of her own outrageous magical ability. Rin has broken her alliance with Shiro who is injured both physically and emotionally. On top of that Archer seems to be loyal but that fealty is highly conditional. Shiro and Rin have been down for so long it is starting to look like up to them.

And it is only going to get worse.

On the plus side Kirei Kotomine is out of the picture for the time being.

But he has a bad habit of popping up in accordance with Murphy’s law.

So, yeah. Pretty much just the worst of times.

Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup: I Have Learned

April 4, 2015

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.

  • Won’t Get Fooled Again
    It seems that Saber has learned from the mistakes of the past.
    Once again it was April First so Type-Moon went all out. They did another Twitter event but the amount of surrounding material was far more complex. I have tried to get as many links to Type-Moon related events as I can here. If I missed any just let me know so I can add them in.

  • Feel The Magic: Manga Edition
    Heaven’s Feel is getting a manga adaptation in Young Ace magazine presumably as a tie in to the movies that are coming out. When I first saw this article I thought the first movie was coming out on May 5th which seemed a bit too soon.
  • Mask of the Phantasm
    The cover for the Carnival Phantasm Complete Edition box set has been revealed.
  • Number One with a Bullet
    The first Unlimited Blade Works Box Set is doing quite well.
  • Bravely Default
    As the first episode comes out today it only makes sense that the commercials for the second half of Unlimited Blade Works are pouring out.
  • The Fated Stream
    While I don’t think anyone was worried it is good to know that Crunchyroll will also be streaming the second half of Unlimited Blade Works.
  • Ace of the Compy
    Comp Ace celebrated its 10th anniversary with some art in the accompanying illustration book which included the Type-Moon titles currently running in the magazine.
  • This Space For Rent
    Some more Type-Moon related ads on the street.
  • The Power of Zettai Ryouiki
    Rin is now a card in Lord of Vermilion III. It seems that someone other than Saber can get some love from time to time.
