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.

Episode 12 means the end of the traditional season for anime and for series like Babylonia that’s going to go for around 23 if I remember correctly, which means that we’ll be getting a recap episode for TWO weeks instead of the usual one so this will be the last episode of the year.
It entertains me to think that the anime is getting closer to Ereshkigal while she’s going to get released in NA servers in a few hours of the time of this post’s creation.

I have to say that Jaguar Man really did break the pace of the visuals.
Yet in that same breadth I’m acknowledging a tiny girl running around in a leotard and a body-jacked Rin flying around in her panties. I guess the point is that in gacha, unless it’s cute or sexy, don’t bother. Wouldn’t you know it, Jaguar Man’s final ascension falls in the latter category, at least I think that’s what most would place it at. Anyways, we don’t deal with much in this episode but we do some important looking back though.

You know, I almost forgot that Leonidas is voiced by Shinichiro Miki.
A bit interesting seeing how both Azur Lane and FGO started off in the same way with some action to get us settled and then calm things over, but I guess it’s a basic enough formula to follow through with how to open up shows. Definitely a lot less fanservice shots, which is a good thing because I didn’t want to spend combing through frames.

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.
