Okay, I’ll admit I got a little nervous there. I really want Momonga or Ains as he prefers to be called now to remain the overpowering character that he is now. There is a pretty good chance that that’s not the case anymore now.
We learned that there are others that can use magical items that belonged to that game. They can summon stuff, watch people from afar and god only knows what else. Ains had the advantage of being the only one with items like that, but not anymore. There are characters out there that know about that game and the items from the game. They are doing the exact same thing as Ains right now; exploring the world and making use of ignorant humans in order to obtain more information and power. That might mean that Ains is not necessarily the strongest.
And what about that swordsman? He used some pretty interesting attacks against those angel-like characters. It was just like the moves you’d see in your average MMORPG. Are there others like him? Can that sort of thing be thought or do you have to be born with that talent? There’s just too much that we don’t know yet…
I like how Ains doesn’t get full of himself. He is currently still the strongest so far, but he doesn’t brag about it and he certainly doesn’t underestimate others. He fights carefully, thinking that there might be someone strong to beat him just around the corner. That’s really good thinking. I like characters like that a lot.Read More
This turned out to be quite the amusing episode. People are still moaning about how this doesn’t live up to some of Ufotable’s other works. Stop crying and enjoy the show. I think it’s a really entertaining show and it’ll probably only get better.
I think this week’s episode was a bit better because there was a subtle combination of information about characters and their weapons and quite a bit of action. We learned, thanks to Alisa, that new-type girl, that their new-type weapons have the ability to devour those monsters and absorb their “energy” in order to turn that into ammo for their long-ranged mode. I think that’s absolutely brilliant. They don’t have to carry around all that ammo. They can just switch their weapons back into sword mode and send it out to devour one of those monsters in order to replenish their ammunition. That should make them a lot more mobile since they won’t have to carry all that stuff.
I’ve seen quite a bit of those new-types this week. I think Lenka’s melee mode looks cooler, but Alisa’s longer-ranged mode, that awesome-looking minigun, looks so much better than Lenka’s canon. That does not change the fact that Lenka, despite it being his second battle ever, performed just as well as Alisa, whom seems to be experienced in battle.
Alisa also strikes me as a little rebel. I hope I’m right. She refused the help from others because she didn’t want to abandon her comrades and she even whooped Lenka’s ass in order to prove her point. I like that. People that follow orders blindly are the ones that die first. So keep on rebelling as much as you think is necessary!Read More
Another interesting episode. I find that these episodes can be quite misleading when it comes to the Working series. You think something’s about to happen due to the amount of progress some characters seem to be making, only to feel betrayed afterwards.
So Jun and Yachiyo’s relationship has been progressing quite nicely since last week. Yachiyo knew that there’s a girl that Jun likes, she just doesn’t know who that girl is, which makes it a little harder for her to approach him. She realizes that she doesn’t want him to be just a friend anymore. She wants something more, but she doesn’t know what that is. She’s socially quite awkward and doesn’t know much about relationship or love in general, which only ends up making things harder. We’ve reached a point where I want it to be over with; let them become an item already. It’s been long enough.
The unexpected twist during this episode was when souta started to see Mahiru a little differently. He thought that she was cute, even though, in his mind at least, only adorable things (like children and little animals) are usually the only things he finds cute. Quite the interesting development no matter how you look at it.
But hey, it’ll probably be like Jun and Yachiyo; it’ll be milked until it completely stops being funny. That whole awkwardness between Jun and Yachiyo stopped being funny last season, so I wonder how fast this will stop being funny. There really aren’t a lot of possibilities when we’re talking about a girl that doesn’t like to communicate with people from the opposite sex.Read More
This is actually becoming quite interesting. An angle that I never thought of is slowly becoming more and more real, which is actually pretty good. There might actually be a war on either side of the gate if this keeps up.
I say all that because Japan is the only country with one of those gates. That gate leads to a whole new world filled with all sorts of untapped resources that Japan could obtain and use to become the world’s biggest superpower. I simply never thought of that. I just thought that they were going there to eliminate a threat.
The idea of them becoming the number one superpower is simply quite interesting. Other countries will become nervous (or at least their leaders will) and will naturally want to prevent Japan from becoming that powerful. The only way to do that is to get them to share that gate or to go to war with Japan and simply take that gate by force.
In the meantime; the defence force is doing their best to accommodate their new guests as best as they can. They have built houses, baths and all sorts of things that drastically improved their lives. In a smart amount of time they’ve built an entire base from scratch. It’s so heavily fortified that even a dragon would have a real tough time attacking them. Your average panzerfaust or RPG might not be enough to kill one of those things, but all of those tanks, canons and heavy anti-air artillery might just do the trick. Perhaps a guided missile or two to blind the dragon first? The possibilities are endless… See why I said that the story is becoming really interesting? I have no idea what’s going to happen next.Read More
People are extremely ecstatic over this show. A lot of people don’t know that this was based on an erotic novel and think that it’s all innocent, when in actually it comes pretty close to porn. What you don’t know won’t harm you, I guess?
The artwork is alright I suppose. A lot of good studios have been working on these spin-off series. To me it just seems like it’s more fan service than anything else though. It’s not nearly as good as the regular Fate series.
I only really watched half of the first season to be honest. The story simply didn’t interest me. It was pretty funny at the start, but I soon got bored with it and I could tell that my image of the Fate series was getting worse.
Fate die-hards will watch this no matter what I say here. Perverts too. Unfortunately, I simply respect the Fate series far too much to watch this. It just doesn’t measure up.
Plot Summary: Based on the Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma☆Illya 2wei! manga by Hiroshi Hiroyama, itself a spin-off of the Fate/stay night erotic visual novel by Type-Moon.Read More
