I am very sorry I missed every 12 day post….. I had to take care of a few things here in the real world and was also hit by a few bouts of sadness (for unknown reasons). If I had stuck to my rough chronological ordering, this post would actually be the fifth, but no matter.
For every year, for the past four years, I have written a 12 Day post on Fate. It is just how it ended up working out you know..Fate Zero aired across two years and so did F/SN UBW. If you are curious, here is my first 12 Day entry on UBW. I just wanna quickly clarify for the folk who don’t see the massive of amount of Fate tweets I make, but I am a big fan of Fate. My posts might not read like that since they contain a lot of rants on it, but I do genuinely like the franchise! I make this note just in case you grabbed a pitchfork.
Oh and as a fair warning, much like Fate, this post is a real mess! I hope you can find something good in it though! Right, so, uhh, where to begin…
Well, F/SN aired back in 2006, so I am not sure if I should call it “end of season”, but I figured I’d stick to convention.
I recently stumbled across the Archer vs Berserker fight on YouTube and as bad as the fight was, the music in it got me interested in the original Fate route adaptation. So, I decided to watch it. It was surprisingly all right and not as bad as everyone had lead me to believe. It still had its fair share of faults though.
Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works episode 20, appropriately titled “Unlimited Blade Works” is arguably the most pivotal episode of the series. The central conflict at the heart of Emiya Shirou’s suffering comes to a head as he battles with Archer. I will do my best to talk about this most anticipated episode in a reasonable, hopefully mature manner.
I am sorry this post is coming a week late (episode 20 should have already aired). To be honest, most of it was already done a few days back. I thought I wanted to publish a different post first, but changed my mind. Anyway, this time around, we learn that Emiya Shirou is a stubborn mule without a modicum of common sense and he can’t see the world anyway other than his own. Oh wait, we already knew that.
The 15th episode of Unlimited Blade Works had quite the impact on me, so I figured I should make a short post. Do note that there will be some minor F/Z spoilers in here, so if you haven’t seen it then don’t read on (but in all honesty, the spoilers are very minor).
The Fate series has already been featured twice (1 & 2) before in my 12 Day posts, and it will be featured a third time for 2014 and likely a fourth for 2015 as well! It should be obvious by now, but I like this series a lot.
Unlimited Blade Works Part 1 was a lot of fun, but there actually isn’t much to say about what what was in it (most of the heavy plot stuff will supposedly happen in the second half).
