「Localization Decisions For Literal Dummies」 Shirou doesn’t care if his body is made of swords

Alright, let’s talk about Eng­lish dubs. I don’t talk about dubs much, most­ly because I haven’t seri­ous­ly watched one since Samu­rai Cham­ploo’s (amaz­ing) dub. I don’t even both­er play­ing Japan­ese video games with Eng­lish audio either (nowa­days I don’t real­ly play local­ized JRPG’s that lack a dual audio option). I do like a few of […]

Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works Epilogue & Sunny Day

This makes it the fourth time I’ve seen this shot Okay, so I’m back to wrap up the Fate/stay night Unlim­it­ed Blade Works post I start­ed ages ago. Instead of squeez­ing in the VN’s orig­i­nal epi­logue at the end of the pre­vi­ous episode, Ufotable did a great thing by pro­duc­ing an entire extra episode with […]

Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works 24 – 「武器の貯蔵は充分か」

-I am the bone of my sword- 体は剣で出来ている。 ‑Steel is my body and fire is my blood- 血潮は鉄で心は硝子。 ‑I have cre­at­ed over a thou­sand blades- 幾たびの戦場を越えて不敗。 ‑Unaware of Loss- ただの一度の敗走もなく、 ‑Nor aware of Gain- ただの一度の勝利もなし。 ‑With­stood pain to cre­ate weapons, wait­ing for one’s arrival- 担い手はここに孤り 剣の丘で鉄を鍛つ。 ‑I have no regrets. This is the only path- […]

Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works 23

Fake Assas­s­in’s bat­tle with Saber here is pret­ty damn dis­ap­point­ing, with how quick­ly it all went down. We did­n’t even get to hear an ani­me ren­di­tion of Ship­pu no Ken­shi, “Sasa­ki Kojirou“ ‘s own theme, in the ani­me. Dammit Ufotable. It’s sad because this is the only route where Fake Assas­sin feels remote­ly rel­e­vant to the […]

Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works 22 – 「 Dolphins」

Or rather, uh, sperm whales. Los­ing the sex scene from the orig­i­nal visu­al nov­el isn’t much of a loss, in my opin­ion. With Real­ta Nua, Type-Moon likes pre­tend­ing that the H‑scenes in the orig­i­nal PC ver­sion nev­er hap­pened. And they hon­est­ly aren’t that nec­es­sary in Fate and Unlim­it­ed Blade Works. They only ever have a […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works 21 – 「 My dream is not wrong」

And here marks the ani­me’s end­ing of Shi­rou’s epic ther­a­py ses­sion. There were bumpy moments before this episode that made me doubt how they were going to han­dle the most emo­tion­al fight of Unlim­it­ed Blade Works, but in the end, Ufotable man­aged to pull through.

Fanime 2015 Haul

Image Cred­it: さこ from Pix­iv Alright, I’m back from Fanime 2015. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I’ve come back to a horde of school projects I’ve neglect­ed in favor of my spe­cial once-a-year geek-fest, so for now I’ll just go over the merch I spent my moolah on this year and share the rest of my Fanime 2015 expe­ri­ence […]

Oversensitive people shouldn’t indulge in creative media, ever

Rin’s look of dis­gust. Shin­ji being a sicko. The jus­tice served by Lancer (and more). This was from an ANN review of episode 19 of Fate/stay night Unlim­it­ed Blade Works, and no, I’m not going to link to it. If you real­ly want to read that review, look it up your­self, although I sug­gest not […]

Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works 19 — EMIYA

After­noon News: Sexy Red Man attempts con­vo­lut­ed sui­cide plan After a sur­pris­ing­ly weak per­for­mance last week, Ufotable man­ages to pull some­what of a sav­ing throw with this episode. I do have minor qualms with what hap­pened this week, but for the most part, I’m extreme­ly sat­is­fied by Ufotable’s efforts.
