Seems this anime will be only 10 episodes.

Ok, I finished the TV show (note, there are still 2 more episodes left for Summer) over the weekend...and it was rather underwhelming.

I didn't really feel attached to the story at all nor the characters. It seems the entire season made way too much emphasis on Nero (Red Saber) and Hakuno than anything else. Some of the characters that appeared from the Fate franchise were a big letdown for me for their roles. Not to mention, I think the directing of this show in general just wasn't good.

On the other hand, I think Shaft did a great job at animating the action scenes while putting their talent into the unorthodox style of production work. Shame to say for me, this was another mediocre Fate series.

^ Isn't it 3 more episodes?

Nero sums up most people's reactions to this series:



I've personally been enjoying the series from the beginning and loved every minute of Nero being on screen, especially in the recent episodes. Could the writing and directing been handled better? There's no doubt it could've been a lot better. I think the biggest flaw is that it requires some knowledge of the game to get the full context of what's going on with the characters, but even with the stuff I've read about the game, it's still not enough to completely understand the story. However, I also think that by this point most of the important information has already been revealed with the only major mystery left being what exactly happened in that fight in episode 1. Some of it can be guessed with the information already available and there's still time to explain since the final fight will likely contain at least some answers.

Overall, it's nowhere close to perfect but it's still good. I'll reserve my final judgement for when the last few episodes come out in July.

So it turns out that it's a two-hour special and not a second season. Well, Shaft did this with Owarimonogatari, so I should have seen this coming.

*headscratch*

I get the feeling that I am going to be either confused or disappointed when I finally get the chance to watch this.

And here it is. My first time hearing the Extra characters dubbed, and it feels a little strange to not hear Sakura Tange as Nero, but Fate almost always has a decent dub, so no worries there.

The show is visually interesting (because Shaft), especially the backgrounds, but the writing is ... WTF. I know Nasu wrote both the original game and this show, but it's pretty clear that this is no adaptation of the game. It's a completely different series of events, totally AU to the game, and nothing like the continuity from the production notes (which became Fate / Extella).

Started watching this last night, maybe to the third episode, and so far I like very much. Without knowledge of the games it wa extremely confusing at first, and I thought a little ridiculous- but once Hakuno grabs the sword everything falls into place and you're back in Nasu's magical world that you know, with a ....wow.... really sexy Saber... and the virtual Grail War is on! At first I was like wtf when they mentioned 128 servants- but now i think that's perfectly suited to a virtual world type of battle where there can be dozens of adversaries and we get to see some new classes of servants.
Oh and the Dub is excellent, just like every other Fate anime I've watched.

Without going into spoiler territory, from a number of plot points in episodes 4-5 at least (I’m only on episode 7 so can’t comment on later points) there’s a strong link to the game (in terms of actual narrative as opposed to homage or adaptation) but it’s clear that this isn’t in any way an actual adaptation of Fate Extra itself.

In some ways I guess that makes sense - the game would have likely been a pretty bland anime if adapted faithfully (though I’ve never played ccc so can’t comment on that)

P.s. Ever since Playing Fate Extra I’ve had to admit that Red Saber = Best Saber!
