Fate/Extra #02 — Limbo Exposition

February 3rd, 2018


Basically your most generic Shaft episode.


I don't think I have it in me to suffer through another Fate series so soon after the last, especially not a Shaft one. Five goddamned minutes of taking a bath, followed by a ten minute date, followed by about three to four minutes of Shinji just straight up monologuing. And I'm calling the last part of that the best one, despite the lack of nudity, simply because I think Shinbo is screwing with people again. Shinji kept dramatically turning his back to the audience solely to lean over backwards in the standard Shinbo pose. Each time, he leaned a bit further. By about the fourth time, he was practically limboing. Had that scene gone on for another minute or two, he would've been crabwalking around the room. The entire time, Haruno just sits there, through bath through date, through being stabbed. A sack of flour would've had more presence. And can explode under the right circumstances.

    Was Saber’s boobs always that big? And why Saber and not Caster?

    Fucking hell that’s bright. The fanservice is there but contrast needs to be adjusted.

  • Fluffums says:

    I never knew I needed a Shaft anime about a high-stakes limbo competition until I read this review.

  • catsB says:

    so is lack of direct verbal confrontation with shinji (for killing MC) an attempt at covering up that MC is an amalgamation of people who had died in the tournament?
