Fate Extra Last Encore- Episode 3: Familiar Setpieces

Fate Extra Last Encore- Episode 3: Familiar Setpieces

A bit faster this time.

I’ve had 3 different set of subs for each episode and I’m slightly entertained into thinking this will be how it’s going to be until we reach the end. I’d have no excuse other than laziness if I got this out any later like I did last week so I made it quick, but just as long as the other. This is honestly the first in a long while I have had the urge to write as much as I can. It’s not too often this sort of adaptation comes along that’s a melding of both original and adaptation content and I’m inspired to point out as many differences as possible. I usually just cover the episode but I’m actually talking about how it differs so it’s certainly more entertaining than the regular episodic coverage stuff I do.

That being said, I’m still extremely mixed about how I feel about this.

I definitely didn’t expect things to turn out like this. Let’s get right into it since I have a lot to say.

Finally back to covering a series, it’s nice. Let’s skip the pleasantries and get right into what a special occasion FE’s coverage is going to be. Most of the times a series I cover is usually a light novel adaptation with predictable plots or manga adaptations where I usually get impatient and just go ahead and read the source material two weeks in. In JJBA’s case, a series I’ve already read, Fate Extra Last Encore follows a similar pattern in that I’ve already played Fate Extra in its entirety and Last Encore is supposed to be a re-imagining of the events that went on in Extra. According to Nasu himself, this was meant to be accessible to people who haven’t played Extra, and I quote, meant to make people who played Extra go “what?”.

Without a doubt, I was definitely curious what the hell was going on. So let’s dive into this and see why.
