Ten years after facing defeat in the Fourth Holy Grail War, Waver Velvet, now Lord El-Melloi II, teaches classes at the Clock Tower—the center of education for mages. However, his new status as Lord comes with a caveat: obey the orders of Reines, the younger sister of the deceased Kayneth El-Melloi, until she is old enough to rule the House of El-Melloi.

Waver, along with his mysterious apprentice Gray, takes on a series of cases assigned by Reines and the Mages Association. With each case proving to be more complex than the last, could there be more to the Clock Tower than meets the eye, and what secrets does Reines hide?

Mixed Feelings
This is a really interesting spin off concept. As a fate fan, there a lot of hits and misses in this family series but I am actually looking forward to see how this one plays out.

You see a lot of conglomeration, especially of character uses in this, that are easy to miss if you are not paying attention. I just finished re-watching apocrypha so it was fresh on my mind when I saw some pop outs in the background.

It is a school type series but more in like a Harry Potter way than a typical school type anime. The art style is good ...

I was excited to watch this certain show as I enjoyed Waver/Iskandar content from Fate Zero.

Let's get the main thing out of the way, This show in particular has nothing to do with the Grail War. Secondly It didn't feel like a fate series, it was more like a detective/mystery show. The start was good but after a while its alright but nothing interesting was happening anyways.

Lets talk about the other things about the show
