Astolfo is very popular on Pixiv, apparently.

Cute, but eh.

This show is just so incoherent I can't follow it, and do they really need 2 Saber look alikes? Kind of disappointed so far.


The only thing they have on common appearance-wise is that they're both blonde women. Ruler's design is actually pretty distinct with her long braid and the armor on her forehead. And what's incoherent about this?

I guess the poor doctor hasn't seen enough anime to appreciate monster girls.

Franken-fran is pretty cute

So I guess Jeanne's role in all of this is to say 'play nice' and minimize disruptions to the daily life of civilians in the area, taking the role of the church supervisor in the regular Fate/Stay night setting. It seemed like a self-aware nod to history that Shiro the priest seemed kinda gung ho about getting rid of Jeanne...

Not enough Mordred this week; wanna see Assassin of Red and Shakespeare next time.

Episode 3

Oops, late post on this. It really sucks that we don't have a consistent schedule for this.

Anyways, they introduced a homunculus this episode and we get some slight info about him.

Interesting to see a little bit of action this episode and even Rider of Black Karna showing up! We got Karna confronting Siegfried as well. I also like how the episode focused more on Siegfried. Frankenstein is still amusing to watch in this show lol. Too adorable. I wish they put more time into the Karna/Sieg fight though but I am still satisfied with it.

Karna:

Karna is a Lancer of Red, not a Rider of Black, just FYI.

I wonder how many people realize Karna is a Divine Servant.-.

I wonder if any others will be shown.

Despite Aniplex of America consistently denying they don't own the license to this show, it's now listed on their website as a summer title:

Episode 3

Karna is quite the aggressive one there going after Jeanne, but luckily Siegfried is there to put a stop to that attack. While Jeanne could get along well with the members of the black faction, she realizes that it's her duty to remain neutral in this war. And then those wishes, these masters and servants sure have a wide variety of them from Frankenstein having someone like herself to Chiron being immortal, as well as Fiore wanting her legs to move without giving up her magic. While everybody is dreaming big, first they will have to take care of Spartacus as he's on the attack. It will be interesting to see what's next now that everybody is starting to trade shots.

Gave the first few episodes a try, so here are my thoughts so far:

The intro was horrendous. It was the the exact kind of garbage that every other typical shonen show does every season, I think that alone might scare off quite a few viewers from getting into this one. It was just a rushed jumble of characters being thrown left and right for no apparent reason. They spammed character introductions every few minutes and nothing really seemed of importance, once they slowed things down and got down to specifics it started to come together. By the start of the third episode I was thinking this might be decent, by the end I'm thinking this will be good. I get that they wanted character introductions out of the way so they could get to fighting, it was still awful. I'm pretty sure the 1st episode can be skipped and everything will be the same?

As usual the character personalities are a key part of the show, with many unusual and unexpected types in addition to the typical villains. I'm not a fan of the battle royale type story because I was traumatized by Akame ga Kill and ever since throw foreign objects at the screen when a character dies to a single "death blow" type attack. I'm more of a fan of the drawn out battles like in F/S N. So far the way I feel about the show is that if they took away the unique charcters it might just be an average show. The animation is typical of the Fate series, but a little too closeup I think.

The first episode explains the entire premise through Go Lion and Melloi II conversations... skippable?
