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.

Fate Extra Last Encore- Episode 2: Can’t be a Shaft adaptation without some nude bathing scenes

Fate Extra Last Encore- Episode 2: Can’t be a Shaft adaptation without some nude bathing scenes

The timing of these posts are going to remain weird with how long it takes for proper subs to happen but I was slow on the uptake this week so hopefully this won’t come as late.

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

Fate Extra Last Encore- Episode 1: Let’s make an overly long prologue even more confusing

Fate Extra Last Encore- Episode 1: Let’s make an overly long prologue even more confusing

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.

Fall 2015 Harem Challenge Part 3: Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon- Silver Link’s Guide on Wasted Potential

Fall 2015 Harem Challenge Part 3: Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon- Silver Link’s Guide on Wasted Potential

Here it is, the final contender for our Harem Challenge, Anti Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon.

And before anyone asks, yes I skipped a week of episodes but oh well, not much worth mentioning happened.

Normally, Light novel adaptations that are rushed never bother me. This is primarily because I don’t read that many light novels because I am aware through my own research and experiences to know that most of them are honestly the same. Even through my friends am I told that some light novels are completely beyond help and I have begun to despise the very setting “reincarnating in a different” world setting, as well as the RPG-ish setting with stat buffs and the likes. Truth be told, the main problem lies with actual translation works as well, with some of the things I’d want to read not being translated or something similar. So it’s safe to say, most of the time, I’m indifferent to LN adaptations.

To the best of my abilities, I will try to be unbiased as possible. But even so, there’s a lot to discuss. So what in the hell went wrong? Well let’s get down to it.

2014 Figure List Part 1: Summer WonFes 2014

Space Dandy and Blade Dance are up in line but let’s take a break from that.

I haven’t talked about figures for a good year so I decided that I would tackle the subject right after the 2014 Summer Wonder Festival. I’ll tire everyone out with what I got and what I want (of what is out) in part 2 so let’s get to the Wonder Festival stuff that got my interest.

I’m going to keep this nice and simple so let’s not waste anytime here. Here are the figures that got my attention this WonFes.
