They don't need to eat or kill, yet they're killing machines with teeth for brains.

Honestly, I don't think the Lahmus look that bad, moving or not.

Crest worms however...

Well that didn't go as planned. So Ana basically killed herself? Let me see if I got this straight, Ana is the original version of one of the three gorgon sisters and then ate her sisters and became Gorgon and then with the power of the holy grail was put in sync with Tiamat and thought she was Tiamat but really wasn't but was immortal except Ana's scythe can kill immortal beings but by killing Gorgon she killed herself...right? (also where did the name Ana come from if she is Medusa?)
Anyway now we have to deal with the new humanity the Lahmu before the real Tiamt wakes up, and there are a lot of them


even worse Vegeta



Yikes, though I don't get the implication that they were also turning regular humans into them like Siduri, was that what they were implying?

Also where is Ushiwakamaru? I thought Enkidu was turning her and other humans into demonic beasts, and now he is dead, well that's siblings for ya.
Really interested to where all this is going because I saw none of this coming.

And Ana sure went out in one last crotch blaze of glory












Loved how her long bangs were flying all over with her hood down



not something you see too often a girl running up the giant boob of her older self





Mash got a little action too



so did Quetz

Pretty much. In Fate lore, Medusa cared about her sisters and was always killing humans after being banished to their island, but she eventually went insane and ended up becoming the monster Gorgon, killing her sisters. Gorgon was summoned into this singularity to carry out Tiamat's will. Gorgon had some of Tiamat's power and their senses were linked. Ana is a younger version of Medusa who knows how her life played out but didn't experience those awful events, so she initially distrusts humans but doesn't actually hate them like Gorgon does (and is also sane of course). Ana's scythe is the same blade Perseus used to kill Medusa in the legend. So it's kinda ironic that Ana used the weapon that killed her original self to kill another version of herself. Ana's name is clearly an alias she's using here, though I'm not exactly sure where she got the name from.


Yikes, though I don't get the implication that they were also turning regular humans into them like Siduri, was that what they were implying?


Yeah. If you remember the captured humans that Gorgon and Kingu had in their base earlier, this is what they were turned into. Siduri also unfortunately got captured by the enemy and turned into one,


Also where is Ushiwakamaru? I thought Enkidu was turning her and other humans into demonic beasts, and now he is dead, well that's siblings for ya.


I don't want to spoil it, so I'll only say

Thanks hmmm could have sworn he said they were turning them into demonic beasts and last episode they were still in the temple where they fought Gorgon so why didn't they come from there? That made it seem like they were two separate things.

Oh yeah and why did it affect Merlin? I didn't get that part.

The opening scene is beautiful of Ana's dream of the Shapeless Isle where she sees her sisters and is surrounded by her friends that she was never able to make in her mythic life.




The fight with Gorgon is amazing as the usual action with this show has been. But now Ana ignores what Mash and Ishtar are doing and attacks Gorgon, who is terrified.



Ana's death is so heroic, it's the tragedy that has to be repeated so she can save humanity.
Now that it's played out, I would say Medusa's arc struck me as a almost mirror image of Shirou Emiya- especially the UBW arc. Ana is a tiny girl in FGO because she's the young version of Medusa, and she confronts her future self. Both grown versions of the two characters hate their younger selves, Shirou becomes cynical from the irreconcilable contradictions of his ideals, while a life of thousands of years of hatred by humanity has turned Medusa into a monster. You can't help but have pity on them both. It makes her especially a hero because she destroys herself to achieve the same thing that Shirou was trying to do. Now that's good writing.

Everything else that happens isn't my cup of tea. The La)mu are those kind of prickly disgusting creatures that are ugly no matter how you look at them. I like how their name has a sound in it that doesn't have a letter in our language. But the way they're given the name is clumsy. The violence was the kind that I don't know why they choose to portray it, a guy smashing another man''s head with a rock repeatedly until he dies.. that was kind of shocking and unwanted.
The other thing that I didn't like was how, at the beautiful climax of the Gorgon fight they had the need to suddenly make Chaldea contact Ritsuka to verbalize what we can already see happening, and then show the dumb computer lab full of white-coats looking at screens and monitoring the fight from there. Why they insist on dragging the clumsy game mechanics into this adaptation, just brings it down. As a narrative, that scene could have been entirely cut out and it would have been fine. Instead they just had to hit us over the head AGAIN with an unnecessary reminder that this is based on a game, which was unwelcome and equally unwanted.

HELP ME PLEASE!

Did this anime stall at ep 11? I've played the mobile FGO Babylonia singularity and see that this thread is discussing things way ahead of anime ep 11 on CR... is the whole singularity animated already? Will CR have all the episodes? Please let me know what will be available here -- I'm very much enjoying the anime for this singularity, and want to see it all...

My bad. You're right. I went back to some of the earlier episodes. They were using human body parts to create demonic beasts. The Lahmus are born from the corrupted mud (Kingu briefly mentioned it when discussing what do with Ushi) that suddenly rose up from the sea.


Oh yeah and why did it affect Merlin? I didn't get that part.


I can't remember if it was supposed to be explained by this point or if the explanation comes later (it's been a long time since I played this chapter) so I'll tag it just in case.


Probably not the best way to describe it and I'm not 100% certain on the details. I think there's a chance this will get brought up later.

There's no new episode today as it's another one of those omnibus episodes coming today. Since this show has only 21 episodes that it has the luxury of taking this many weeks off, so there are still two more Saturdays that this show can take off between now and the end of the season.

I believe I heard that there's only 1 more break planned after this one.

Episode 16

As it turns out Enkidu had the Grail inside him all this time, and one of the Lahmus took it out of him. Just when it looked like Enkidu was a goner, he's saved by a Lahmu. Or more specifically that's Siduri in Lahmu form using her last bit of strength to keep Enkidu alive. While that was happening, Ritsuka and company were chasing that Grail-possessing Lahmu on Lucoa's dragon, and they meet up with a familiar face who isn't exactly the same Ushiwaka they know. Especially since that monstrosity can multiply, but hitting them all at once took them down. Even so, Tiamat is now in possession of the Grail and is about to turn this place into a wasteland, so Ritsuka is going after Tiamat herself. Things just went from bad to worse here as Tiamat is about to lay waste to all humanity.

And now, this show has a new ending theme song by the same artist as the second.

What's better than a Lahmu? A flying Lahmu!

Seriously, those things should just burn in hell (except Siduri).

Glad we finally got to hear Aoi Yuuki singing in the anime as the voice of Tiamat. Wasn't expecting Tiamat's face to look so cute, though.
