Fate/Apocrypha #02 — Meet and Greet

July 8th, 2017


God help Pinky if she ever puts on lipstick.


Pretty much the same issues as last week. This time, it was focused on the servants. They all had a meet and greet, featuring the one with the really freaky-looking flesh-fang, then proceeded to review the meet and greet, followed by introducing the other side. They shuffled the action to the end of the episode rather than the start, and it's certainly staying well animated, but it was again only about a minute long, and mostly featured the duo curbstomping a bunch of mooks and mook golems. That would only come at about… 19 and a half minutes into the episode though, and was over in under two minutes, so even if it was the most eyeball orgasm-inducing thing in the world, it doesn't really make up for the other 85% of the episode simply spitting around a dozen different things out there solely so it could have a dozen things out there.

Kick the plot into gear, or focus down on a smaller subset and at least pretend to be telling an actual story based on them. A minute of eyecandy a week is not worth 21 minutes of gasbags pontificating or various disparate scenes thrown together, each supposedly inching their way towards… something.
