Unlimited Pincushion Works #08 — Crappy Monster Season Continues

November 29th, 2014


I don’t think “My body is made of swords” is supposed to be literal.


Well, that was disappointing. Our standard first half of pissing around followed by beating up a bunch of bad CGI skeletons, and let me tell you, recessing the head of a skeleton is not the creepy horror they seem to think it is. Then when it finally comes down to Rider vs Saber ‘for real,’ B immediately stabs A, who was actually C, because B was already dead and apparently just hanging out, slightly embedded in a wall, waiting for X and Y to stop by so she can untwist a broken neck before dissolving into sparklies gravel. How utterly and completely anticlimactic across the board.

So if you’re keeping score at home, it was around seventeen minutes of sitting on their asses and chatting, a third of which was spent explaining that the giant eye in the air shooting lightning around the school was evil (not for the lightning, mind), three minutes of hitting skeletons with brooms, and the remaining time spent on dreams of having an arm made out of swords. God help us when it comes to the dolphin metaphors for sex.

    Actually, the body/swords thing is super literal, if we’re going to use the game’s CGs as a source.


  • Sanjuro says:

    Ufotable can usually hide how bad CG normally is but that skeleton sword looked particularly awful.

  • Germanguy says:

    Well, you can guess what or how killed Raider.

    For fans that know the first Fate/Stay Anime, these Masters and Servants is not news. And we know what Masters are still left. So the Big Surprised is gone, that perhaps one of the Drives of your disappointment of this entire Show

    • Germanguy says:

      Well, for me the Drive to keep watching is not the curiosity of Masters and Servants, no it is the Way how they come to the Finals. In the End only 1 can Life!!

      Highlander!!! Only 1…. aehm, yes you know the drill

      there is enforced playing order in vn and despite that everyone admits that ubw>>>fate
      also even after reading the whole novel there is no disappointment in the show
