Unlimited Archer Works~


Garcher taking the spotlight this week, nice. Quite a revelation regarding himself as well too.

Felt bad for Rin this week though...

That went too quickly. They showed Archer's flashback, but not Shirou's...again.
UBW was hype, but still, that CG was horrid.
What was with the end scene? Issei noooo :-:

Its official. Shirou is 100% turned into generic "TEMEEEEEEEEE" shounen protag who just shouts and runs.
But don't worry. Based flawless mary sue rin got 20 minute monologue instead! Shut up already, Rin. Gods I hope one of anime original things to be added is that she gets brutally killed. Despise ufo-Rin so much.


Well at least they showed the headache. Which will come out of nowhere since they skipped all the previous ones. And without explanation it will be completely disregarded.

UBW cast was underwhelming and the cgi looked very meh.
They rushed and modified most of Saber/Archer fight. If anime onlies complain about "them just standing there" - don't worry. They were not supposed to.
Also GG Ufo on completely ruining one of Shirou's most badass moments by having him simply project swords and smash against thrown ones -_-


Either way not much to say since this was another fireworks episode. Waiting for incoming "omg asspull" calls.
I dare to anyone to say this is better than DEEN. Because this was pretty much DEEN.


2/5 and those two points are for Shinji's fashion sense.

...Wow...somehow they rushed the Saber/Rin contract more than the DEEN movie, and made it far less clear how much more powerful she was now. And yet, just when I thought ufotable was trying to budget time for Archer flashback episodes, they still have Rin monologue about his life. I am really confused on what they're trying to do at this point.

Inb4 super intense nitpicking about how this episode was "the worst of all" or something like that... EDIT: I was too slow... it happened already...



I really liked it, by now Archer's identity should be completely obvious.

Also don't forget the after-credit scene!


One thing I didn't quite like is that this episode seems to have chronological issues. The scene where Gil and Shinji appeard seems too early and the Gil back at Ryuudou temple? Can he actually really teleport through the town?

Its quite clear that Miura has no sense of what do do and they will just Seed Destiny it now.

This was awfully handled.

That was a scary 15 Minutes without Lancer.

I want to take this moment to facepalm over the fact Archer used projection inside UBW, this is all I will mention of the subject.

Lancer and FAYCAR saved this ep, a bit of analysis helped too i guess.

3/5

With the exception of DEEN, I have to agree with Fai this time.
It felt like the episode last for 10 minutes.

Want... translation... so... bad...

Unlimited Blade Works was mind boggling. Shirou's GARness scale was at all time high this episode (for the anime).

5/5 for what i could understand (80% of the episode).

Next episode will probably have the best Lancer moment in the entirety of F/SN.

character models in kingdom look better than that ground.

Why did they decide to cgify whole ubw marble is beyond me.

In other news, God Eater has all hand-drawn weapons.

I...doubt that, considering how flashy everything looks when fireworks go out.

Its time to stop making excuses and accept what this is - DEEN movie spread out over 25 episodes.

Well then, let's see;
It didn't start out too bad, actually the first confrontation and contract scene was okay-ish. Though Saber just standing there without Archer telling her about her ideal to knock her off balance was pretty silly.
As for UBW, the CGI ground looks much worse than the one in the PV's. It actually looks legitimately bad. Which is too bad, because the PV's look good. Lol.
Shirou's second confrontation with Archer was lolworthy, hello DEEN. At least they showed analysis of weapons and he did actually destroy them. And no explanation on why UBW collapsed.
Hopefully the Rin monologue (wow, look at that, amazing, right?) had the explanation of Throne of Heroes which they left out earlier.

edit:
Hmm, so they do have the ideal talk between Archer and Saber and the explanation on UBW collapsing, along with the throne of heroes explanation (kinda) so all things considered, it could be worse. Rin's talk was okay too. Still rush job.

It looked fake as all hell.

And Shirou's most badass moment so far got completely deened.

Astro pls.

It looked fine close and still but the first 360 and the second it panned looked like absolute ass.

Which is weird because it looked like they had fixed it in the comparisons you posted.

Rushed and some of what happened was altered for the worse. Need subs for Rin monologue but I can guess pretty well what she talked about -_-

UBW ground looked TERRIBLE from what I saw.

2.5/5

This is better than Deen.


Bit rushed and the cgi was a bit disappointing for most of UBW.

Not sure how to feel about Archer using single sword throws and Shirou using melee attacks to destroy them,but they showed his analysis skills and it seems better to NOT be able to sword spam so soon.

At least Archer not doing anything to Rin's chant is looking better here than in the VN.

Not sure what Gil at the end is for.Extra scenes for the temple being the Grail summoning ground or some other purpose?

Anyone heard what he preview was talking about?I only paid attention to the pieces and if 20&21 are Answer then it is too soon for THAT scene.

Well, I gotta agree everything inside UBW went by too fast (even though it was a fairly short scene in the VN too). First time I've been somewhat disappointed with ufotable so far. Rest of the episode was pretty good though, will have to wait for subs of Rin's dream. Oh, and it was also weird to go back in time for a post-credits scenes, but at least people won't be wondering what happened to all the monks (and we got to see Issei's brother!).

Well, it IS CGI. By CGI standards it looked awesome.

Shirou's moment was badass. It was deened, but it had a bit about analysis and the cut at the commercials felt abrupt, which could mean there's a cut portion.

UBW was over too quickly, it can't be this short.

I seriously didn't think it was possible to rush this fast. They could finish the anime in 4 eps top with this speed.

Shirou is Dumbass in ufoUBW, 0% inner monologues.

The Saber/Rin contract was really meh and they didnt show the true power of Saber

Judging by the pacing, we won't be getting an hour long episode at the end of the show.

This episode didn't seem as great as I hoped it would have been, but I can't judge it fairly without subs.

It's very different. Shirou didn't just summon Caliburn and destroy everything in his path with it. He copied each sword and collided them to destroy both, which is kind of foreshadowing for the final fight in the series. Well yea, it could have been better. But remember that ufoUBW is probably a bit different from vnUBW, since it was established long ago that the NPs work differently in the anime than in the VN.

And he can't use it without Saber.

That's weird. They'll have to fill the rest of the show with lots of filler bullshit. Even I'm starting to become somewhat pessimistic.

I was talking about DEEN. Where Shirou basically did EVERYTHING with Caliburn.
