A Semiramis is spotted. Gilles, you should have appeared in this show instead. Some parts of the OP grated on my ears a little...

Apocrypha is a LN, not a game where you can choose gender.

The Yggdmillenia are pretty nice to have the homunculus in the tubes wear some underwear. Their budget must be bigger to afford clothes for their mana batteries.

Loved seeing Flat there And voiced by Matsuoka. Case Files anime when? I demand that Svin be voiced by Nobu.

So far so good. Animation quality is good, and mostly hand drawn, though I expect some dip later on because A-1. I think this is the animators that handle the CMs of FGO. Something to look forward to I guess in the big fights like what we just got. Can never get enough of Mordred's helmet transformation.

Strange Fake, too. The future of the Nasuverse is Flat Escardos.

I concur that. Flat just rises quality of this anime by 25% (Kairi, Mordred and Weaver makes for remaining 75%).

I was expecting this to be bad since it's made by A-1 but it was actually a nice first episode. Not sure how they will manage to explore so many characters tho. 14 Servants and 14 Masters seems overkill and will probably lack exposition for the majority of them. Time will tell!

Finally watching it with subs. Kairi will forevermore be known as "Golion". Thank you, Flat.

Review up. It looked pretty good. Especially that opening. Homunculus and Dragoontooth warriors duking it out while Servants clash in the center. When will we get a thread for the anime?

Hmm, Mordred's helmet STRONGLY reminds me of Bayformers.

Yeah, you kind of have to question where she'd get a retractable helmet in that time period. Then you remember the latest transformers film and cringe.

I was kind of expecting like Arturia to make it disappear/reappear with prana, but nope, we got another Knight from Cybertron.

I saw A-1 and thought it'd be garbage, but after this first episode I've started thinking. The light novel that's the source material for this is already complete which means Fate didn't green light an adaptation for the sake of advertisement. They genuinely wanted a good anime so I like to think they made it clear to A-1 that they wouldn't take any of the studio's bullshit and demanded nothing but the best.

Maybe around the same place she got a sword that fires beams ! I mean magic weaponry is alright, but it's a big deal to have a retractable helmet? They can't both be magical in nature?

You know you're way into Fate when you inmediately realize that's the kid from Strange/Fake.

And so it begins. Having read some of the novels, there's certainly stuff to look forward to, and stuff down the road some will not like. At all. Still, it should be a fun ride, and certainly one full of characters and action.

The episode itself looked pretty damn good, and told everything that needed to be said for the moment, and of course, doing the now trademark summoning sequence, so basically, all that needed to be done. Gotta say, though, I didn't expect to get a look of THAT battle first thing, but I guess it was a way to ease down all the setup. Really, a good start to a crazy adventure.

Gotta like what they do with Mordred there, though: Just by hearing how she says that well known phrase, you can tell this isn't the Saber, or the Fate you're used to.
