    I'm kind of partial to ImperialSoldier!Archer and TaishoEraMaiden!Rin. Though Detective!Archer having a tea incident is cute.

    I have a hard time deciding whether or not I like Neo given that we've seen nothing besides her sassy grin, pwning people (mostly Yang), and getting really freaked by Raven. Though she does have...

    I prefer: Real, and it's a frickin' teaser sequence for next year so that when it actually happens, we see how Raven contacted her and came to see her, and once they've had the offseason to create a...

    That would be the "in the wrong ways" part I was mentioning. The flip side is that some things go entirely ignored. Like how Neo KO'ed Yang without Yang ever using her Semblance. Or how many times...

    I have to agree with the above takes on E12:

    The total lack of a sense of danger or urgency in the fight undermines the point of everything going on with it plot-wise. Early on, when Yang got...

    Did not know that; excellent! (One of the things I kind of dislike about the show is that its a TV spinoff of a superhero cinematic universe...starring a bunch of OCs. And S.H.I.E.L.D. itself was so...

    I have no problem with Neo beating Yang in the fight. Simply put, Neo is the better fighter.

    What I don't like is the lack of Yang powering up. Unless we're shown a down side of that ability,...

    In all seriousness, Fastball Special Zwei is basically a reminder that the kids are students and the teachers are uber-badasses. Plus Zwei is awesome, because dog.

    Hmm, I guess I stand between "For a Proper Adaptation," "Ufotable-quality fights," and "Something to Watch."

    I like Fate/stay night as a story, I enjoy watching anime, I believe that anime is a...

    So basically, Heroic Spirit EMIYA is essentially a whiny git with an overwhelming adherence to an excessively rigid world-view.

    ...And he's Shirou, so I can accept that explanation.

    The problem with the "but one time..." thing is that it's not that he had a happy ending once, it's that he figured out how to put all the rest of the crap into perspective. So it's more like the...

    Yeah, but the difference there is, EMIYA just signed up to save people, and he pretty well knew that that meant killing stuff, including other people. And without the emotional connection to the...

    So now, rather than being confused over why EMIYA's UBW experiences didn't erase his suicidal depression, I am now confused over how anybody without any real emotional link to events, observing them...

    Hm, you know, there's a way it could work.

    If he receives only "knowledge," then we could say that his HS self can only access "a record of the events that happened." But that record may not...

    I must just lack sufficient imagination. I honestly don't see the escape benefit of creating an OC in an undeveloped world to tell a story that's bog-standard. (But then, I don't understand why one...

    But the problem there is, what's the point of the story in the first place? As you point out quite accurately, this is literally what is going on with Team JNPR right there in the show. (Basically,...

    I never understood this part. Archer basically died idealistic and more or less happy about his choices, and then his Counter Guardian duties got him all depressed and suicidal because they suck.
