Fate/Apocrypha – 19

「終わりの朝」 (Owari no Asa)
“Morning of The End”

Even though there wasn’t all that much that happened throughout this week’s episode, I’m glad that the debate has been settled on screen once and for all.

General Impressions

For those of you who have been trying to blissfully live in a world where you believed that Astolfo wasn’t a guy — sorry, not sorry. Because out of everything that I wanted from this show, a hilarious moment revolving around Astolfo revealing his gender to someone who didn’t know was near the top of the list. The metaphorical cherry on top though had to be how Ruler of all people didn’t know Astolfo’s true gender. As the “third” party who already knows who everyone is (and I’m assuming what their powers generally are), how in the world did she not know that Astolfo was a guy?

Funny moments aside, let’s take a second to talk about Caules and Fiore’s moment together. Out of everything that’s happened thus far in the show, I have to give it to the story for making me care just enough about Yggdmillennia that I don’t want all of them dying. Ever since their introduction, I think it’s been fairly clear that they’re not these “bad guys” that they were painted to be. Compared to the things we’ve seen (plus any prior knowledge you have of the Fate series), Yggdmillennia could be considered saints. And the thing is, once you start looking at them in a positive light, you can’t help but root for them. They’ve lost a majority of their servants, their physical home is in ruins, a bunch of their family is dead, and the head of the family ended up biting the dust after going crazy and having his essence absorbed by his servant; only to then get quickly destroyed by Team Red. All of which leads to this week’s episode where you want to believe in them, but have to question their decisions. Why give the crest to Caules if he’s also headed out to battle? Why transfer crests at all if Fiore is still going into battle? If the crest provides a benefit to your overall magic output, why doesn’t the person with the servant have it? All questions that I’m hoping we get a really good answer for soon since it’s going to drive me nuts if we don’t before those two bite the dust. (On a totally separate side note though, I’m also down for an ending where Gordes ends up being the only one left and ends up living a good life teaching the homunculi how to live life and ends up being like a derpy father figure to them)

Closing things out, it was rather nice of the show to finish things up with Mordred. Seeing how she (or Shishigou) hasn’t had much time to even speak recently, it’s great to see that she’s starting to grow up a little. While her brash attitude and RBF may contest to that, there was this fuzzy feeling building up in me as she realized that Shishigou was giving her some great advice and that she was too embarrassed to admit it. Anyways, I’ll catch you guys next, next week since I believe we’re getting a recap episode. Until then, have a great Thanksgiving (sorry Canada) and I’ll see you guys then!

      I’ll let you know that my brain is perfectly working at a full 49.5%.

      Seriously though, the focus on Sieg’s character development is something that does absolutely nothing for me — which is probably why I forgot to talk about it. Had he not turned into a Heroic Spirit and helped destroy the literal embodiment of “creation”, sure I can see him having the time to question his existence and whether or not he “likes” mankind. But like it or not, he’s become an integral part of this Greater Holy Grail War and he’s already made a commitment to act on behalf of Team Black. That and there’s been so little substance behind his sudden revelation that there wasn’t much of an impact (at least on me).

      At this point I’m more interested in how Jack’s death affected Atlanta — but not by much since I’m still questioning where the stoic and confident Archer from earlier in the season went. Again, her shift to this depressed and brooding person after 1 short flashback isn’t a good enough explanation for me.

      What did you expect? He doesn’t behave like a blogger, but as a childish fanboy. The least we can expect from a blogger is that he/she can speak about the main points of the plotline and also about the characters who are directly involved in him, even if he/she doesn’t like them (not your personal tastes/preferences).

      • November 18, 2017 at 5:06 pmDarksorrow29

        You know what’s funny?
        Even a blind man can see that he had multiple orgasms when he talked about the magic crest transfer that doesn’t have any purpose other than to provide the fanservice and otaku pandering. This magic crest transfer was just so irrelevant that it wasn’t even mentioned in this week’s recap episode (19.5). That gives you an idea of just how important this moment was. Hahaha… I laughed so hard I almost pee’d my pants.
