「最後の選択」 (Saigo no Sentaku)
If only every show could have the budget that Unlimited
Budget Blade works has. Then again, even as amazing as the episode was, I still don’t enjoy this one season hiatus they’re springing on us!
Something that I would have never saw coming in a million years, who would’ve thought we’d get to see more than just a few minutes dedicated to building up the relationship between Rin and Shirou in a somewhat normal fashion? I mean, this show is known for its amazing fighting sequences as well as the ideology battles that all the characters face, am I right?
While I’m sure some people will have issues with the show taking a slight detour, I loved every moment of the two’s little date. Besides reminding us who the true heroine of this route really is, I thought it was interesting to see how the pair’s chemistry work together. Because as shy as Shirou seems when Rin’s toying with those precious emotions of his, how can you not love his manly responses that chime in just at the right moment?
The Rules have Changed
Wow oh wow did a lot happen in the span of only 30 minutes. From Caster unleashing her Noble Phantasm and literally breaking all the rules that were made in one fell swoop, isn’t it a bit surprising that she didn’t try unleashing her plans even earlier? Anyways, as overpowered as her power and Noble Phantasm may seem, I’m sure there’s something hiding in that complex character of hers that’ll eventually lead to her downfall — Too bad we’ll have to wait until the spring to find out :/
Looking Ahead Before the Break
Twelve episodes in and I think ufotable has done a fantastic job with this adaptation of Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works. They’ve stayed true to the source material while adding their own flare to make even the most unordinary things stand out, they’ve made this adaptation easy for both newbies and veterans to enter, and with buckets and buckets of money they’ve made one of the best looking shows I’ve ever seen. So yeah, good job ufotable!
P.S. Thanks for keeping up with the posts everyone! Sorry this one’s a little late — I’m still on vacation and am working on top of cardboard boxes. I’ll see you around the bend when spring rolls around!
P.P.S. Stay classy ufotable — that rendition of Disillusion was pretty freaking awesome.
