    Right you are. I spoke in jest since I'm basing those teleportation of UBW swords from Archer's demonstration.

    Which I think leaves it up for more serious discussion on whether UBW can counter closer GOB opening, which I think is plausible if we allow Archer's demonstration to be applicable to Shirou.

    But Ufotable deployed the mighty smoke screen to not have to figure out how it actually worked.
    One petal in every cardinal direction, one below, one above, leaving one extra to surf on.

    And yeah, that's why I left 360 spam ambiguous since ufo did and we really don't have any way of telling what the hell happened besides flying through the air on a broken Rho Aius.

    I just thought that since Shirou is a sword, he can use swordkinesissword-telekinesis to boost his jumps and slow his falls. Though while watching some live reactions I noticed that for all that Arashi complained, Shirou was always forced back before he jumped forwards towards Gil. He only got close enough to clash swords when he began walking running in a circle around Gil. And when he flew on Rho Air.

    Back on topic... So... how's the overall satisfactory level? Do you think UFO do justice enough of UBW?
    Some people and friends told me that this week episode was asspull especially Shirou vs Gil and Archer sudden appearance.

    I kinda disagree with the first one but well, Archer sudden appearance was rather ass-pulley even in the VN...

    UBW's ending is shaky as a whole, but I still think it's really enjoyable and Ufo did a great job in the adaptation. If I had to ask to change something in the fight, maybe less jumps? From Shirou I mean. Got kind of ridiculous.

    I looked at Zero yesterday to get a screenshot for something.
    But watching parts to get to that point, think I liked Zero more. However, I thought the high points of UBW were better than the high points of Zero.
    Knk was better than Zero though.
    Though abandoned, forgotten, and scorned as out-of-date dolls, they continue to carry out their mission, unchanged from the time they were designed.
    Machines do not lose their worth when a newer model appears.
    Their worth (life) ends when humans can no longer bear that purity.

    Finally watched the episode, and damn that was satisfying. Thank you Ufotable for using swordspam for Gil vs Shirou! And using all those VN remixes!

    Then I will ask that you pay closer attention?

    Spoiler:

    Here I am, about ten paces from the King of Heroes. Does he have enough swords in stock?


    A few steps forward to deflect incoming fire.


    Another step forward. Man, my sneakers are so awesome, even the laces tanked what my jacket could not.


    Still running forward, the wind in my hair and everything. But I'm gonna duck forward in frame because my mouth is so huge.


    After sword spamming Gate of Babylon, I'll even prove that I was making a mistake in going for the high jump rather than the long jump.


    Man, how much have I been running toward this guy?


    Time to hit the spin-move button to avoid these tackles.


    Still running. I hope my AGI score starts to reflect this.


    Oh for fucks sake, why is Gil even further away than he was when I started this shit?

    Too bad he was wasted on a series like Danmachi. Fate as a series in and of itself is good, so even with an (in my opinion slightly above) average director, itll turn out well. Also, Fate had pacing issues that I can not chalk up to only Miura because episode 0 had the best pacing out of all.

    I feel like too many people got mindbroken from FFD and jumped straight to lolshieldsurfing. Shirou just held it out in front of him to block incoming fire while he fell toward Gil to dismember him.

    As for the Gate of Bablyon: Cage of Death Mode, Shirou probably flung as many swords as he could and used Rho Aius to block the rest before leaping up for the dismembering blow.

    I don't read FFD, and you're right in that he's more windsurfing with it as a sail rather than surfing on it. But it's an easy joke to make.

    What do people mean when they say Shieldsurfing?

    They mean like fucking Legolas in the Movies? Like straight up surfing on the shield?

    Because there is nothing that implies that in the Aias scene

    How do people even call that surfing when he's literally just falling with a projected forcefield in front of him anyways?

    Having watched it a couple times I kinda miss the feeling that Gil completely lost his cool, but it was still enjoyable to watch.

    Though the anime version does leave me questioning why Gil didn't put on his bullshit armor when Shirou started charging at him, since he wasn't freaking out as much.

    One thing I want answered... How would the media explain the exaliblasted grail?

    Would it have still been a gas leak? Or maybe a shooting star of doom?

    Meh.

    I liked this episode. There were some shaky bits, but the Gil vs Shirou fight was as epic as I imagined. Though, the start of tge fight between Gil and Shirou was lackluster, but it's probably because I imagined Shirou saying "Do you have enough swords, king of heroes" more epically.
