First of all, yes, I am still watching this in case anyone was wondering!
Secondary, what is God’s name happened during that break between the 1st and the 2nd half of this series?! I don’t know if it is I that changed in that break but the 2nd half has been so disappointing to me that it almost looks like two completely different series!
Actually, I wasn’t really that satisfied with the first 13 episodes which I guess explains why I was so looking forward to this second because I thought things would be picking up to blow me away! Not gonna lie, this is because I was totally spoiled by Fate/Zero!
Now, some might argue, and they might be truthful when they say I was only disappointed due to the lack of GayRin but let’s be honest here, the action totally sucked! There was no awe at all like how Fate/Zero blew us away! And this has nothing to do with the fact that we have seen it before so the wow factor is gone! No, this season plain sucks! I don’t think I have watched an episode in its entirety without skipping this second half, no kidding!
Complaining? Hey, I waited all this time to finally voice my thoughts so let me pent up a little bit! To think that Rin is no longer even remotely bi in this series! Seriously she is so straight that even Death the Kid would feel embarrassed at how straight she is! She even got Saber as her servant FFS!!! This fact and the action are the reasons why I still have that UBW movie on my HDD and I was so very looking forward to having another yurigasm when Rin finally got Saber but it was just like eating a chicken meal – just another meal! No gay moment to be seen anywhere meanwhile so much straight Rin everywhere! Arg!
Sakura, where the hell is she? The three stooges, where are they?! Taiga-sensei – who the hell is that even?! So much talking and no action! Seriously there is so much talking this second half you won’t even believe it! How can one fall asleep during a 20 min watch?
But there is a reason why I chose this moment to finally write about this series that has to be the biggest disappointment to me in the history of my anime life! It’s so bad that now I just get an episode as routine and it takes me less than 6 minutes watching them depending on the length of the action (Or Gil-sama screen time!).
Yes, Gil-sama being awesome gave me that jolt that I have missed so greatly! Archer is dead and I don’t even feel anything for him! But as I already mentioned, Lancer replaced Archer in the Servant ranks and I was sad but kind of happy too because Lancer had a great moment! He is a true hero! He deserves all the screen time instead of these emo Fakers! But I am getting distracted here…
I swear to the one and only God when I saw EA I completely lost it! I don’t even know why! I saw it in Fate/Zero but for some reason I completely forgot about it! Even when I saw the God Key I was like ‘What is that? What is the King of Heroes’’ up to and then BAM! My boredom with this series has all but been erased! That EA, it really does cut anything – mass, time even the damn feels! The look of terror on Shitrous’ face was darn delicious too…
And he wasn’t even the target yet he was knocked out cold! Not only was he not the target but Gil used but a portion of EA’s power! Hell, he didn’t even swing his arm at all, that King of
Finally, after ages of noSaber we finally get her in action and guess what, 99% talk 1% action! Seriously, is this the uFotable we all know and love or did someone evade the headquarters and has the whole crew under suppression?!
Any way, Tohsaka Saber is infinitely more awesome than Emiya Saber! And it goes without even saying as well but Tohsaka Gil-sama is also awesomer than Kotomine Gil-sama! The only reason that Fate Saber was that awesome was because she was emotionally Iris’s servant! No one knows it but her contract with Kiri was only a connection for her and Iris!
Any way knowing all that the way they made very little use of Saber grinds me to no end! And now instead of finally getting the fight of Kings we are instead going to get the Faker not even worth of being in the presence of Gil-sama pull his asshax because there is no frikking way he should be able to beat Gil-sama! And Saber drunk on Rin’s mana would be the greatest opponent to hell with this UBW is GoB’s weakness bulcrap! Only Excalbur (especially one powered by Rin) can stand up to Enuma Elish! Instead Rin had to split her mana pool just because…Ah sorry Gil-sama, there goes the excitement you managed to birth from me!
Looking forward to next week a little bit!
