Just because they can't convey the proper story doesn't mean their art designs weren't good. Except for projected weapons.

Okay okay, you hate DEEN, I get it.

Indeed. The art designs are pretty good. There have been much worse adaptation designs, much worse. But I do prefer Sudou's since I feel they honor Takeuchi's more.

There's a 4-koma comic page in the extra booklet that comes with the BD. Decided to translate it on my blog just for the heck of it lol.

The mushroom thing has to do with the joke that all phantasmoons "villians" are based on mushrooms so she is offing her a dead villian.

Exactly. To this day i'm still in awe at Unlimited Blade Works. Fantastic looking piece of animation, from start to finish.

Really? To be honest I didn't really like the art at all...

Then again it's probably because I keep subconsiously compare it to Kara no Kyoukai. =P

1st episode: First reaction was "wtf did I just watch"... but on second thought I liked it better than the actual Holy Grail War (and miles better than UBW... *hides*).

2nd episode: Some characters here who I don't recognise from Melty Blood, guess it's been a while or they only appeared in the game?

Both episodes were blissfully short, don't think I could stomach this for a full episode length even if it was good for a couple of cheap laughs.

Simoun. But it's true that DEEN mostly produces trash, unfortunately. Simoun aside, the few times they came out with great stuff was predominantly due to great source material, such as with Tsuiokuhen and Higurashi.

Basically they succeeded in spite of Deen.

Well comparing anything type-moon related to Kara no Kyoukai is an unfair contest .

kind of a bummer the intro and ending is so long.

so instead of the 14-15 minutes, we're actually only getting 9minutes of content...

I am so addicted to the opening and a part of me wants to see this into a full fledged series.

My friends told me they'll never see Saber and F/S Night the same way ever again. Lol.

And don't crucify for confessing my preference of Carnival Phantasm to non-existent anime to game's character designs

As well as in terms of story, Rakkyo >>> Far side of the Moon > HF@F/SN > Tsukihime/MeltyBlood >>> Fate > maid doujinshi >>>>> CANAAN
First, the game actually had character design I could stand - and fell in love with. I have no opinion of non-existent things so you lost me there. But the VN had awesome character designs as did Melty Blood.

Second, Canaan wasn't that bad.

Look we get you hate DEEN, get over it. Most of the time they're just a hired gun, are given a crappy budget and told to do this and that. Do I personally want DEEN to handle anything I like? Fuck no, but I'm not going to blame DEEN when they're told to animate something (like condensing UBW into a 1 movie was their idea or something lol) and are given crappy budget.

Some of those were years and years ago. And not all the mentioned series are necessarily "good" in my eyes as well.

But the whole hired gun thing is stupid. It doesn't change the fact that it's their reputation. I come to expect bad things precisely because they're hired to do bad things, and not only do bad things, but somehow make it even worst than it should be.

I don't even see the purpose of this since you clearly wouldn't want them to do anything that you'd like either.

I hate on them because it's not something that has been said enough.
