THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Ooh so that's the OP song. Interesting.

I have to admit, Merlin's introduction made me laugh a little. Mash's still got an intuition that makes her more aware of her surroundings. An important episode to further introduce more characters including Anna and more lore revealed about background stories. Anna is such a cutie lol

ED theme song also looks interesting. I must say, this anime has some creative visual backgrounds.

until episode 2 i didn't see any significant problem except they have hard time to animate dialogue scenario. remember again people, scenario in fgo mostly is about conversation and hardly to have explanation text. you can see how they use static image for several second when merlin or enkidu explain something in long sentences. but this is still acceptable and we can expect steady of good quality in the future episode, different from assassin pride

Noticed that the score is goin down too, but heck.
Anyways good ep, nothing much to write about and nothing interesting besides the Merlin reveal and getting a

The OP and ED were nice, loved the early mini fight they had, pretty good animation and art going around. Hope they can keep it that way till the end.

As the post credit scene last week showed us, Merlin and Anna are here (and Merlin's VA is as good as ever). Production value is still high, fighting scenes great. Kingu also showing his true colors. We also got a glimpse of Leonidas and finally Gilgamesh and Siduri. Also i must say they really are going ham with explanations ... even Merlin situation was already brought up.

PS: Opening is bad.

Cause people unfamiliar with this are the ones scoring. This anime isn't gonna be revolutionary, but it definitely is a hype story with alot of highs past the halfway point.

all the fgo players have already given 10/10 while everyone else is finally catching up on whatever they were going to give it
"I like young-girl sexual creations, Lolicon is just one hobby of my many hobbies," he says.
I ask what his wife, standing nearby, thinks of his "hobby".
"She probably thinks no problem," he replies. "Because she loves young boys sexually interacting with each other."

The opening is pleasant but nothing more than that.
Animation during the fight at the beginning was pretty good.
Fine episode.

the OP and ED songs are meh but damn the visuals of it are so good and so are the sakuga battles in this episode too

i thought Ana is an adult woman but she is just a loli? or maybe she is just short in height lol

that fake Enkidu is great at fighting and from the OP he is really part of the enemy

This is just fantastic.

The production value on this seems insane, they really putting that FGO money to good use eh? The art is so pretty and the animation and fight sequences are fantastic.
OP is awesome, Eresh only had a little screen time in the OP though. Do they want to keep her mysterious or something?

Merlin is amusing, I love how he just provokes everyone with his smug attitude of being a Grand Caster. The part where he intimidates Da-vinci was hilarious. Fou jumping on Merlin was funny too.

Ana is cute. <3

I don't actually read the stories in game, I only know vague summaries of each singularity. So I'm watching this as kind of an anime-only but with some knowledge of the source so I'm curious what Enkidu's role in this is seeing as this is a time after his supposed death.

The one of the highlight in this episode is Fou-kun kicked Merlin, its hilarious seeing it animated xD. The animation and art this episode is amazing. That OP is good but the scenes are great, ED is nice with cool visuals. And next is Gil vs Gudao and Mash. To the next episode

That fight scene between "Enkidu" and "Ana" was pretty nice.
ED quite reminiscent of FZ's first ending, same singer too.

Aw yes, great episode, the animation and art visual is excellent.
The OP and ED is....eh... Probably gonna get used to it couple episodes later.
The characters introduction is spot on, exactly what I wanted it to be.

The visuals look stunning.
I am used to seeing Gilgamesh in UBW but now we get to see a different look of him

I haven't completed the 7th singularity but so far it seems that nothing is being left behind in the adaptation

Amazing episode again, finally I'll get to see my best boy Gilgamesh in action next episode! ♥
I really liked the Op and Ed I don't understand the complains, the songs were chill.
The fight scene between Enkidu and Ana was awesome as well and she finally joined the team with Merlin.

I'm still not used to see Gudao all the times, but i'll get over it.

All the people who voted hated it are weak anime only.

the opening is bad indeed. I bet you the only reason they let USG do the opening was that they have popularity, not because their style fits Fate or anything, cause it doesnt
It's okay to smirk

The OP and ED visuals are really nice, but I personally not really a fan of the songs (yet)

Friendly Uruk guard bro

This show would've benefited immensely by just releasing the first two episodes together because this episode was honestly good. Just no more ass shots like last week and we're set...

Fou kicking Merlin was funny, but then I remembered Fou ruined everything in the chapter after Babylonia and it's not funny anymore. Merlin > Fou.

K interested in how the fight with Gil will go without Kintoki Rider lmao.


Anyway, I think there were less butt shots this week, good.

Decent OP and ED. I loved the art in the ED. Episode itself was good. Enkidu is revealed to be an enemy and they finally reach Uruk and face King Gilgamesh. I love how they managed to portray Uruk as big and lively city.

The fight scenes in this anime don't disappoint. My favorite piece of animation from this show so far is the one in the OP with Not-Rin fighting Mash and Ana.

Storyboarding is really good, some info-dumpy scenes would be rather boring without it. Also love how great the anime is at portraying the liveliness and scale of Uruk and its environment.

A quality production like this deserves a higher score.

Man, I fuckin' Loved this episode, comparative to the first, I just felt so much more into it. Merlin is a cheeky dick as per usual. Ana is adorable, the towns great, etc. romani getting exhasperated with merlin is also wonderful

and I see so much complaining about the OP here and I just don't personally get it LOL, this chapter is literally "dark" shounen, and Nasu has made explicit comparisons to long RPG/fetch quests iirc. It getting the most shouneny like opening possible is literally the best thing for it; I am at a loss at the blunted reaction tbh.

Kinda sucks they blew the lid off the reveal though.

Use of the word "prostitute" is such a shitty misunderstanding. They were priestesses, certainly not hired whores. There's no proof that they included intercourse in their rituals, but if it were true, it would be reserved exclusively for the king.

I loved the episode. It was really nice to finally watch the OP and ED. I absolutely loved the OP (visuals and music wise), as well as the ED that blessed us with beautiful images, in my opinion. I also really liked the fact that the ED shows some symbolical images from the past singularities at the beginning. Btw, I'm really surprised Eresh got more screentime than Ishtar in the OP. I loved the shots where she appears.

Seeing Fou jumping at Merlin animated was truly a blessing, and Ana looks way cuter than I imagined her. Da Vinci was extremely cute per usual, and and Gilgamesh looks as handsome as ever. The scenery is truly astonishing, and the details and animation looked wonderful for me.

I'm really liking this adaptation of my favorite FGO singularity. Really grateful we get to watch this :)

The OP got me giddy as fuck seeing the unlimited budget works as well as Leonidas finally getting his animated debut. The episode was fantastic as well; I'm liking how they're handling the exposition segments stemming from the game by keeping the shots dynamic, or by switching to different scenery. Also glad we made it to Gilgamesh this episode, perfect place for a cliffhanger. I usually wait until after the first episode to see if a show's animation is truly great, and it's looking like our quartz funds are being used to their fullest. The best part is that it's only gonna get better from here.

tl;dr Loved the episode, can't wait for Saturdays.
