This episode was definitely a very weird one. While watching it, I had a bunch of moments where I thought to myself, “what on earth am I watching.” Especially that bedroom scene with Chiyuri and Haruyuki. I tried my best to go in and not think too much about it (in a sexual manner), but it was way too much. I had to cringe through that part just because it was such a horrible display of “how to talk with a girl in her own bedroom.” Haruyuki might seem to be able to score and make the hottest chick in the school interested in him, but he sure as hell does not know what the hell to do when you enter into a girl’s bedroom.
I have seen magical girls transform. I have seen magical boys transform (Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka). I have seen sailor moon transform. I have also seen shounen characters transform into a higher power (Ichigo/Naruto/Sasuke). I have also seen vampires transform into their monster forms. There was even multiple Frieza transformation sequences. But I have never seen a fat, short pig transform. This transformation sequence nailed the show for me. Like seriously..one of the most badass things I’ve seen this season so far.
Fate/Zero is finally back!! Continuing where it left off, ufotable continues to do an impressive job in making this anime fun and enjoyable to watch. The artwork is still beautifully consistent from first season, and I must say I do miss the stellar artwork ufotable manages to deliver. Not only is the artwork practically eye-candy for the viewers, its dialogue is also well written and does not bore the viewers. I am really expecting great things from this anime, and I am really curious as to how ufotable will bring a conclusion to this, dare I must say, epic anime (I did not read the novel so I am in full anticipation).
I jumped into this anime fully aware of what I was dealing with since I did read the manga beforehand a little bit. Seeing the main character be the object of envy for every non-attractive otaku really nails a lot of people. As a consequence, you have spawns of hatred that try their best to bash this show. Regardless of what people say, I am actually looking forward to this show and I hope that the amount of haters for this show will later appreciate and enjoy the anime as it is.
