The year 2010 AD. Romani Archaman has been posted to Chaldea. There, he becomes the primary doctor for a young girl. Mash Kyrielight, Chaldea's second successful summoning experiment, is interested in the word "Senpai." The interaction between the two gives Mash a reason to hope. That hope becomes a wave and starts to spread. That is your story, the story of a normal "somebody." The story at the beginning of a journey that weaves the future.

Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majuu Sensen Babylonia - Initium Iter Checklist

Story- Who needs story when you have waifus? Check

Dialogue - 90% exposition dumping with Pseudo-philosophical conversations to hide the lack of character depth for these cardboard cutouts? Check

Animation - over done action scenes with no weight mixed with static shots of characters sitting and talking with no unnecessary amount of movement to make them feel as little as human as possible? Bonus points for CGI ...
