And I was visited by the ghost of anime past. He showed me the crappy yugioh dub, and asked me why I would torture me so.
Then the ghost of anime present came.
He showed me Persona 4.
I shook in fear, begging him to stop, but I knew that the worst would come.
He showed up. He did not talk. I knew he was who he was already.
He was the ghost of anime yet to come. It was the most frightening thing I've seen.
A future covered with half assed, bad production values. A future where Deen makes everything.
He took me to a place with many tombstones; one of them had "Fuck You Deen" on it.
And I realized it was mine.
Spirit! Show me no more! Why must you torture me so?
Remove me! Haunt me no longer!
And the ghost of anime present came to me once more and said. There is no need to delve in this flith. Watch only good anime. Do you want to go on a journey?
And thus we went... and I woke up realizing what a wonderful day it was.
I honestly thought 10 was one of the better episodes - it linked important things between F/Z and FSN, plus indirectly showed a good side to Tokiomi. Which will be necessary, because what he did to Sakura and what he does later on in F/Z is pretty chilling.
11 - Best themes I've ever seen from Urobuchi and this is coming from someone who doesn't like Urobuchi. However, most people have missed the point of the episode and simply want to talk up Rider and bash Saber. Whatever. And those production values went missing that episode to boot.
lulz. At one point it goes beyond hating and they are "no longer human", just vehicles of anger, rage, and butthurt.
10 wasn't bad; loli rin is cute and all, though I was kinda laughing at our fearsome serial killer getting his ass handed to him by a little girl. Though it was on the fillerish side, but little girls named Rin have been good characters this year.
11 was better; a good discussion of character motivation. Rider and Gilgamesh dealing with drinks is funny and my favorite part was when assasins refused Rider's drink, leading to the ultimate ability to protect Waver. Rider is definitely a much better person than his real life counterpart. Gilgamesh is funny and a jackass, as usual.
The only issue was that the animation quality was poor, and 11 had some off model moments. Ufotable needs to learn how to move the camera more. It seems they don't know what to do, which leads to stuff like people walking around a table.
