Whoa great episode, finally Ushiwakamaru in action (though not enough IMO) Merlin and Ana "come out" as immortals and give lots of ominous foreshadowing, Enkidu goes full on Villain slaughtering a town and rips a new hole into Ana and then we get Tiamat, yikes. Looks like the beginning of this episode was the last quiet SOL stuff we'll get as the story has kicked into next gear. Should be great

And of course there was no lack of crotches either




funny how the guy's hands cover up but not Mash's



Nice seeing Ushi in action, but kind of disappointing most of her action was long shots




Of course the real star was Ana, I am continuously surprised at the effort (and creativity in the angles to show crotches) that is put into these action shots that you really can't see unless you go frame by frame because the action is so fast




I mean seriously have you ever seen a character drawn in this position?










One last for Mash


and Damn what are those "Grand Teton" cups?

Episode 8

And down goes Ushiwakamaru and Leonidas as they tried to stand up to Gorgon, but end up falling in battle. With the sacrifice Leonidas made, he protected the capital, as well as uncovering Gorgon's true identity as an avenger. And then Ushiwakamaru unleashes her Noble Phantasm, but it couldn't leave a scratch against something with the power of the Holy Grail. But thanks to Enkidu, or rather Kingu, worried about getting the Goddesses involved by simply slaughtering humanity that everybody has been spared for now. However, Ushiwakamaru is about to become Gorgon's slave. Gorgon is quite the powerful foe there and dealing with her will be tough.

Sakuga animation. I expected a big fight and got to see one just like that. Ushiwakamaru is amazing.

That was the best animation I've seen all year. That was incredible. They also cranked up the digital sound, my wall was shaking. The battle just got very serious with Tiamat now admitted to be a reincarnation of Gorgon, who has the ability to turn men to stone, and so Leonidas is destroyed and what happen to Ushiwakamaru is sad.

yeah they got around to the Gorgon reveal sooner than I expected (though not the TIamat aspect of her). Which of course leads right back to Ana.
As I said opposit ends of the same myth. One at the begining and one at the end.

alas we have not seen the end of Ushiwaka....damn this is a dark story

Damn that was worth the wait to see Ushiwakamaru in action, she kicked ass. Her second fight was like Levi vs the beast titan on steroids.
Merlin managed to add at least a little humor to an episode that saw the end of Leonidas

Not a lot of crotch shots but that's not really the focus for Ushiwaka

what an entrance






In case you were wondering apparently her collar's lapels reach down far enough to prevent any nipplage







I thought she sacrificed herself at the end, looks like she would have been better off if she had, that was some nasty stuff Enkidu was doing to her, and sounds like worse is to come next week

Episode 9

Now that Gorgon is the biggest threat, their best course of action is to bring the Goddesses to their side. So they go after Ishtar, and seeing that Rin uses quite a lot of gems in battle that it's no wonder that Ishtar has a soft spot for gems, so they use that weakness to get her to join. It turns out she's a pseudo-servant who is just possessing a girl who looks like Rin rather than that being her actual body. So after Ishtar joins, it's pretty much all about getting to know each other more than anything, and it was inevitable this would happen seeing that they will need all the help they can get. Now, they need to get Ereshkigal and Lucoa to join.

I have to sing the praises of even the architecture in this show. The designs, and some of the framing, even of incidental scenes, is really good.





Although the gang (including the donkey) is clearly NOT IMPRESSED with Ishtar's tacky temple!


Welcome back Ana


Ana and Merlin all ready to fight

I feel like im watching a anime that's in the third season, what a waste of time! Dropped. Gave it a chance panty shots yes ok whatever. Everyone gender swapped into females, yea. Just lack of info on how this all even happened.

yeah that is probably the biggest problem with the show. If you haven't been playing the phone game you are pretty much dropped into Part 8 of a 9 party story.

The two prelude things try to explain some of it but really there is so much missing information for anyone who isn't playing the game

But..complaining about underskirt shots really? No- my case I don't think it's a problem that it's based on a game I know little about, because I've watched enough Fate anime to understand how it works. I'm glad to not know the details because, if I knew the game it would spoil the anime- OR watching the anime would spoil the game. And who wants to watch characters act out something they're playing interactively already?
Fate lor is already famously dense and self-contradictory. My only ever gripe has been making male heroes into females; DaVinci is the most absurd example but at least they made her look *sort of* like Mona Lisa (or as some theories once had it that mona lisa was based on DaVinci himself)

DaVinci is kind of a special case. He deliberatly changed his own Summoning to appear as Mona Lisa. He wanted his exterior beauty to match the beauty of his mind.

but if you think that's nuts just check out Thomas Edison

Not going to lie, Ishtar had me smiling a bit just watching her interact with Ritsuka this week.

Also, her child-like reaction to the gems was absolutely hilarious. Gilgamesh's plan might work if they have the right allies to fight against Gorgon.

Nice breather after last week's intensity, Ana's back and kind of get an explanation for Ishtar's tsundere and odd tendencies as her personality is 30% the girl whose body she took over.

Not too many crotches this week, though Ishtar fans should be happy.


surprisingly Ana's one opportunity for a crotch shot wasn't really taken advantage of
