Fucking amazing first outing, perfect adaptation of the prologue. If rest of the series adapts UBW with comparable care and talent we're for one helluva ride.
ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

Yesss, Aimer will be performing the OP theme for the second season! The song is titled "Brave Shine".

Here's some of her stuff:

^I was hoping for LiSA's cover of 'This Illusion' from the ending of season one, but this seems good too.

Is it just me or did season 2 start of very poorly? I think the next episode will be very action packed and should have been the intro to the second season. As it is, it's boring exposition and highschool kids talking.

To be fair, this makes it a pretty perfect adaptation of FSN.
Nothing is so valuable that it need not be started afresh, nothing is so rich that it need not be enriched constantly.

Well, they're staying faithful to the original plot in that respect -o-; They're basically following the plot of the VN from the point season 1 ended. I'd have thought that the Rin x Caster fight was supposed to fulfill this episode's quotient of 'expensive ufotable animation skillz'.

It seems that whereas Fate/Zero was rather accessible, UBW is suffering a bit because people who aren't familiar with the series don't seem to know what's going on, which isn't really helped by the tiny deviations to the plot which make all the characters look a tiny bit more stupid.

I did think it was good (if a bit out of the left field at this stage) that they're finally building the Rin/Shirou relationship which is supposed to be a focal point of the UBW arc.

New ending by Kalafina is amazing, been hearing it all day non stop. Shame that i can't say the same for the OP.

In the next 3 episodes there will be a fight i was looking forward from the start.

It's my time to shine.

I will fight with a legendary hero.

Yeah, they should have stuck with disillusion, the new OP is pretty bland stuff compared with Kalafina's vocals in the ED.

Shame cause the first OP and the OPs from Fate/Zero were amazing. Also the scenes they put with the song is not helping it.

^Yeah, what's even more disappointing is that they baited us with that awesome cover of disillusion at the end of the last season and then never used it again :sadfrog:

And in today's episode....

SPOILER: Show

-Caster's original Master is given a lot more background as some spoiled third-rate rich pretty-boy Mage who totally deserved what was coming to him.
-Bazett gets a passing mention...although she's already dead by now.
-After one season of Caster being a bitch this is the part where they decide to try and humanise her a bit.
-A fair bit of the budget seems to have gone into making a CG taxi which only appears in one scene.
-Ooh, Fate/Zero references!
-So it turns out Gate of Babylon can be used to drop annoying, unwanted things too.
-Gil-kun has arrived on the playing field! :D

I received both the Heaven's Feel movies in the mail today. After watching both, I'm really digging this route. Heaven's Feel was the only route in the Visual Novel I didn't finish, I was never really interested in Sakura but these movies definitely made her more endearing and she certainly stole the show in both. The second movie was a bit heavy though, they're both rather long but the second has a lot of depressing/darker moments in them, especially the second half.

SPOILER: Show
There's a dream sequence Sakura is in that turns out to be a reflection of what's going on IRL, the paintings on the wall in the castle room are the same images Shirou sees when he touches the shadow in the first movie. There's a reddit post showing off some of the images/paintings but I can't seem to find all of them.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

What I like about Heaven's Feel is that if you're going into it while feeling "Ugh, why should I care about Sakura", the general bitterness of her character hits a lot harder because (HF3 spoilers I guess?)
SPOILER: Show
people feeling that way about her is precisely why she's so fucking mad at everyone in the game and goes on her rampage
.

Heaven's Feel wasn't my favorite at first but the more I thought on it, the more I liked the route in the VN. The movies are pretty good, but don't quite capture how off-putting its supposed to feel compared to Fate and UBW routes.

I'm very early into the HF route in the VN, does it also have the Rumble Grumble scene in it?

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "Rumble Grumble". If you're talking about the scene you described in your spoiler above, there's an equivalent scene in the VN though its played very, very differently.

So I would like to get your guys's opinion on my current situation. I'm hugely into owning physical copies of my media/entertainment. I tend to be a sucker for steelbooks, artbooks, and unique packaging. Unfortunately Aniplex doesn't make this easy with the Fate series (or any of their other titles for that matter) and when both Fate/Zero and UBW were released on Blu-ray by them, both the dubbed copies and Japan imports were beyond my reach. Fast forward to now and Aniplex rereleased Fate/Zero the entire series in one box set. It doesn't contain any additional content, just a little pamphlet with an episode guide and comes in a box similar to KnK, although it was steep in price for just a nice box and the series I took the dive because I didn't want to lose out on having a physical copy of Fate/Zero in my collection.

My problem now is getting copies of UBW on Blu-ray. I can't find the dubbed copies together ANYWHERE. There was an Ebay listing two weeks ago but it was a bidding and the last day before the auction ended 14 other people came out of the wood work and gouged the price up to $610 and I just couldn't justify that kind of money for the release that was only $180 for each set, I wasn't going to pay over double of what they should be for a pre-owned copy. I can find the dubbed release for the second season easily but still at $350+ dollars and I can't find the first season at all.

What would you think my chances are at A. finding the dubbed release of both seasons at Megacon and at a reasonable price? & B. Aniplex doing a reissue for UBW like they did for Zero?

I have KnK, Fate/Zero, and both Heaven's Feel movies on Blu-ray so if I can't get UBW my OCD is going to rip me apart but I refuse to pay more than what I know they are worth.

This just got announced and seems to be the exact same kind of set for UBW that Aniplex did for Fate/Zero.

Still on the pricey side though.
