Well, I must admit, I knew what was coming and I still teared up a bit :'(
Mini-mage... RIP, at least, you died with a smile on your face and your onii-chan next to you T.T
Damn, they even kept the eyes slashing thing from the VN. Well, they had to, to show Blondie mercylessness.

Blondie will have to pay for this (let's hope). But now is not the time, because Shiroe is freaking weak and they are only two. And now Tohsaka is in shit too.

Illya backstory was really well done. I loved how they also added those bits with her mother (or the Graal?) putting her in despair and moving her in a more cynical and lonely path...

Fuck man, I'll next my fix of DxD oppai laugh for that episode :(
And fuck this guys, I'm too messed up to do an album for today episode.

Oh also, I barely just noticed (because I admit that I never read MAL thread) that it's filled with haters. Man, that's hilarious.

This ep had surprisingly(or not?) low amount of feelz. Guess I'll have to go listen Die Lorelei to remedy that.

Basically, a short version of my impression. :P

THIS WEEK ON AKAME GA FEITO

- Not liking the explodey michael bay type of start. THe strongpoint of this in VN was that it was completely calm outside and shirou/rin only noticed fight going on when inside. Here ufo michael bay'd it up for no reason.
- First pacing killer interruption for zerobullshit flashback...yay? Well at least so far the bullshit flashback served more purpose than Caster's FIller master.
- We gotta add needless tryhard edge tho.
- oh look another inconsistency int he filler - the chains holding back Hercules? OH I forgot that this is not canon but BullshitVerse.
- Finaly winter forest part....sort of...as in pretty much the only canon part so far...and...with no actual explanation from VN on why even this is happening. And with additional edgelordery.
- Well congrats Ufo. You ruined most of winter forest....
- FINALLY Shirou/Rin...another little bit of canon stuff...sort of...
- Oh look we got back to the fight the mood of which was already killed by badly placed flashback.
- ANd the fight is yet again static camera sfxsfxsfx fight...here I hoped we will get something .
- Oh look Illya calls to berserker MILIMETERS BEHIND HIM. Way to miss the point, ufo.
- Where the fuck was Gil's Gungir use?
- Fuck the tackle bullshit -_-
- Oh look. Scared Gil. Yay for non cannon stuff, Bullshitverse.
- Oh look a too-late scream of SHirou. way too miss the point, ufo.



Well huge part of this episode can be summed up as edgelordery "mature" fanservice filler just like the previous filler episode last week.
A lot of episode could have been better if the flashback was IN ONE PIECE and BEFORE the fight, not hte midfight.

THe episode was emotionally dull as fuck. The atmosphere was not portrayed correctly, Illya/Berserker bond was understated, most of Winter Forest context was missing and most of filler additions non-canon and pointless.

Even Stratos as generic and dull as it is gave me more feels at the end of ep than this. The atmosphere and tension is just...missing.


And they made shirou look like idiot in this yet again. Fuck this shit.

Also...

CANT HAVE MONOLOGUES GUYSE. VISUAL MEDIUM YO
HUNDRED OF FLASHBACKS INTERRUPTING THE SCENE IS TOTALLY FINE THO.

Sasuga, Bullshitverse.

3/5



edit: the preview....holy rushjob batman, ufo. What will you do now --__--


3/5 is way too generous for this episode.

1. When the hell was that said?



2. He did in the anime as well. They just switch the order of events around ((Nasu approved BTW))

No he did not. By the time Illya is crawling around, Berserker is ash already in anime.
Nasu going George Lucas does ont justify it.

3. Actually this was way more powerful with Rin stopping Shirou from doing something reckless with him screaming helplessly

No it was not. I tmade him look like an idiot and took away from tension of TRYING to do something. Not ot mention his scream too late made him look dumb

4. So? It's a exposition system which makes sense.

Its a tryhard egelordery that's what is.
Illya might as well narrated that info while walking in the forest without the tryhard edge.

5. Actually yeah we did. Go re-read the VN. The wolves tore chunks out of Herc.

for fucks sake HERC
NOT ILLYA
They were not chewing on Illya which not only feels tryhard edgy but makes no sense in context of her powers.

That was sad... Poor illya and berserker...
That blonde servant is just too good... He might be the strongest one but he has the worst master..

I wish we saw more action but it was interrupted by all of the flashbacks...

Blonde foreigner is too damn OP! Berserker didn't even get a proper chance to go berserk and pretty much just lost all his lives continually.

The flashbacks were quite gloomy, particularly Illya's conversation with those people pierced by blades in the water basin.

Dem feels when Illya's was dying though.. Blonde foreigner is one merciless guy! >.<

Good episode. Shirou and Tohsaka probably should escape from there before he finds them.

Yeah. Both this and previous ep feel like they are trying way too hard to be edgy and forsaking any sort of atmosphere or emotions for that.

And the fight was pretty much SFX spam too.

Despite having read the VN you're criticizing stuff that was in it. Herc broke the chains in the VN out of willpower, and stayed intact from willpower as well. The way the VN described it, YES there were tons of swords and spears being launched at Herc. Specifically 22 swords and spears is what finally killed him.

I mean the moment, when he resurrected "one last time" just to surprise Gil, not the fight itself.

That made the moment a lot more powerful to me. He did basically the same thing in the VN just so Illya could die peacefully.

5/5 in my opinion.

I mostly liked the original scenes, the fight was handled well(not too much filler fighting but stuff actually happening), very drama. Some problems with it as always but in the realm of anime it's easily 5/5.

Had me tearing up a little bit near the end. Yep. I mean that doesn't happen much for me when it comes to anime - with VNs it's more common. But I thought this was done very well. It was a callback to the same kind of feelings I had while reading the VN, sort of. One of the best episodes so far, in my opinion.

I also really liked the anime original flashback scenes, though not as much as the rest (like winter forest).


Berserker... you're strong.

Illya... don't worry, this is just UBW.

Goldie... I've always, always hated you. I hated you in the VN, and I still hate you now. It will never change.

That long and grimdark homonculi scene aside, this was a great chapter.

I think this is actually the first time (counting the VN and other adaptation) that I ever cared about Illya and Heracles. Honestly, I expected this to be a lot worse based on the reactions and the leaked spoilers. The animation as always was wonderful and the surprise on Gilgamesh's part, while not exactly the same as in the VN, I believe made the scene more emotional and therefore better.

Looking foward to Lancer next episode.

I liked nearly all of the "filler" scenes and it all gives me tons of hope for the future.

Oh right, and this ending is one I like far more than the usual one.

This episode was amazingly bad. It's everything wrong with this anime, wrapped up into a 20-minute package.
I have to rewatch it to be able to express how bad this was (probably tomorrow). I didn't give a shit about Ilya and Berserker in the VN either, but this is on another level entirely.

I usaully don't feel to much during most things, but gotta say, this episode did an pretty good job at pulling at my feels quite a bit.

Some of the flashbacks are badly placed and make the fight scene seem lacklustre.

Now I just want more Shirou...

Also, isn't Goldie's name still a spoiler, orrr?

This ep was really good - if not, one of the best. Only wished I could see more of Berserker vs Gil, but yeah, time constraints. The flashback added more depth to Illya before her final moments.

So I think Fate Stay Night (The Fate path) was way better even though it was less flashy. This was not a fight, just Gil killing some Mongrel... _and Shirou got amazing screentime yet again_ ...

Actually I sort of agree.

Take away the animation budget and ufo name and this is pretty much rehash of deen raping the material.

One of the better episodes, I think.
Well, the fight was interrupted by flashbacks repeatedly so it was kind of underwhelming. That said, these were much better than the Caster flashback last episode.
Also lol Shinji getting in the middle and talking shit.
Will have to wait for subs to judge Winter Forest. 4/5

On rewatch, this episode was actually better. Winter Forest was still a little lacking and Shirou being derp and getting lolswordshot was something I could have done without but other than that, overall, probably one of the best episodes of the show so far. 4.5/5

Why would anyone care about Illya in UBW? HF I'd understand but here she's just a lesser Grail waiting to get picked up by someone and it just so happens to be Gil-kun.

Without those last 5 minutes I was most likely going to post something on the lines of Illy is so kawaii

But those last 5 minutes got me pretty bad the way he took her sight and then put his sword through her

Her reaction too the way she noticed it was dark and only wanted to find Berserker and then when she said it was cold, it was so dark and so adorable an it gave me the freakin chills

And Shirous face during the hole thing with Rin begging him not to make any noise

Then Gilgamesh tries to kill her with a punch thank god berserker came out but he never stood a chance

this episode was so beautiful until the last 5 minutes but my god it was amazing it was seriously amazing I love fate/stay night
