Following its 2019 TV debut, Lord El-Melloi II Case Files is back to surprise us with a Christmas special episode / short movie. It's not about the festive day itself; it's more of a Christmas gift to Type-Moon fans. So if you're reading this and are not fond of the Type Moon universe / Nasuverse or do not really care about Waver and the Clock Tower, don't bother watching this amazing episode. On the other hand, fellow FZ and KnK fans... have fun!

The story unfolds in the Clock Tower and has a strong nostalgic vibe. Not in the same fashion as ...

If you liked the Lord El Melloi series, probably you will want to watch this special, and I think is very worth watching. The story shows what would happen if Waver Velvet were to be that 19 year old from the past again. He and his Servant Gray try to discover who it was that made him what he was before, and for what purpose. I really liked this special because, it showed more of Waver's life in the Clock Tower as a student and his beginnings as a mage. The art looks a little bit better than before but the animation is the same. ...

I am baffled by the high ratings for this special. I really enjoyed the main season but this was just not it.

The story just felt rushed and roughly put together. I felt like the cases in the main show, even some of the ones lasting just one episode, flowed better than this one. Here, details were skipped explaining why certain aspects were happening or who some people were. And the “reasoning” of the “antagonist” was just overly exaggerated and not properly dealt with at the end.

Apparently, one would better understand the end if you’ve watched some other Nasuverse shows.

Overall, very disappointed. At least the art ...
