All that fucking money and it still couldn’t save itself.
Spending week after week talking about how things will get way better down the line gave me a bad premonition of how things would go.
But hey, if you’re into creep shots of girls wearing high-leg panties and leotards, do I have a recommendation for you.

Yeah, it’s back and things look a bit better but that doesn’t mean the story is going to be salvaged this late into the game.
After Babylonia and this adaptation, I think I can safely say no amount of money or budget can make a good mobile-game adaptation unless you pull something completely original like Shingeki no Bahamut did.

Expectations have not been fulfilled.
Between lackluster King Hassan scenes, anime-only additions, and generally poor quality outside of Noble Phantasms, I’m frankly disappointed.

These breaks aren’t really helping the pacing.
Seeing as how I’m writing up Episode 16 a day away from Episode 17, time to bundle up since not much is really happening. I’ll stress again how Lahmus definitely felt more otherworldly and threatening in-game for the aforementioned reasons because type advantages made them pretty beefy and they removed buffs, what assholes.
Ushi’s fight as well felt at least a bit more alarming because they fired off Hassou Tobi every single turn but at least I feel like they got the set-up for the finale down right.

I should have expected this.
So after hyping up the shit that’s about to go wrong, for more or less the entire time talking about Babylon I had the thought in the back of my head about how a mass of enemies would turn out looking like. All the ugallus and mushus should have clued me in but it is what it is.
