Things are finally exciting.
Took a while for the exciting stuff to finally start and now is the time for when the despair meter reaches the end of its gauge as Quetz’s attack, while massive, doesn’t do enough to stop Tiamat’s advance. I recall describing Babylon pulling off that end of the world feeling really well. The lahmus weren’t enough but now we’re going to see a ton of noble phantasms aren’t going to be enough either.

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.

Hoho boy, here we go.
So unless this Gorgon fight takes longer than expected, we should be due for the fun stuff in two weeks time with a foreboding end to this coming week’s episode

You know I DID forget to mention the supreme amount of pantyshots in the first Azur Lane episode but FGO seems to want to make sure I don’t forget to mention them this time around either. But I actually have stuff to go over so we won’t see too many of those here.
I covered some of the background for this but I might as well go over them again since most of the episode is exposition with some ugallu murder porn. FGO’s first full anime production is here, succeeding the First Order OVA, the Moonlit Lostroom OVA, and the preceding Episode 0 that I didn’t bother to cover for whatever reason. The Camelot Singularity that takes place before this however will come out as a separate movie . The recent Case Files anime as well as the upcoming Lostbelt 5 chapter in FGO all points toward this seemingly well planned sequence of reintroducing Marisbilly Animusphere now that his character has been introduced outside of walls of text but we’re really moving ahead of the adaptation at hand here. Much like Case Files and Fate/Zero, the prerequisite for Babylonia would ideally be for someone to have read Singularities 1-6 and somehow not play Babylonia proper until this adaptation came out, but I already know that really can’t be the case.
