I’ve been examining the couples of Fate/Stay Night for a while now, and as we wrap up our look at all the current Fate properties (except those that came out last year). It is time to turn our attention to the final main couple of the first series. I would say we saved the best for last, but sadly that isn’t going to be the case. Still that doesn’t mean there isn’t stuff to talk about. So after the cut let’s take a character dive into the relationship of Shirou Emiya and Saber.
This is a step down in a lot of ways from the first, but it has slowly grown on me. The tune of the week is the second opening theme to Studio Deen’s Fate/Stay Night: Kirameku Namida wa Hoshi ni by Sachi Tainaka
We are closing the book on a chapter here at Shallow Dives in Anime. With this post, I will have covered every Fate installment (aside from those that came out last year). I think it is only fitting that we end this milestone with the first piece of the series. An installment that has been derided and dismissed by fans. But is that to be deserved? Well as always, I am going to try to look at the series with fresh, fair and understanding eyes. With that said, let’s take a long awaited dive into the Studio Deen adaptation of Fate/Stay Night.
I’m planning on giving my thoughts on the 2006 Studio Deen Fate/Stay Night in the new year, but for now I can simply say this. This song is the only thing Ufotable lifted from it, and it is clear to see why! The tune of the week is the opening theme for the series: Disillusion by Saichi Tainaka!
I finished this series a while ago, but other posts sadly took up my time! No more though, and I’m eager to get back and wrap this re-dive up! Last time we left off I said Fate Apocrypha was a good series that had many great moments. But it absolutely felt the most like a spin-off compared to other series. Does that mean it is bad though? And has the remaining half of the show carried things forward? After the cut let’s take a dive into the back half of Fate Apocrypha and find out!
The Summer of Love III concludes! We have now reached our final post in the third annual Summer of Love. It’s been a long journey and as always, it’s been ups and downs. Still we are now at the end, and it’s for our final thoughts. Let’s get into those after the cut!
The Summer of Love III continues! We have now reached the final piece of story released so far for the series! With all the characters in place, and the evil defeated for now, it is time to sit down and explain how we got here. Where Miyu came from, why she is so important and why the Shirou Emiya of her world was so dedicated to saving her. Let’s not waste anytime and get into the film Oath under Snow, after the cut!
The Summer of Love III continues! We are heading into the final season next week, but for now I want to take sometime to do a character dive. These are always fun to do, where I look into a specific character and talk about just one or two things that make them tick. It’s not a full blown observation, but just a glance at one thing that makes them stand out. I always end up doing one or two of these during this event, and this time is no exception. After the cut let’s take a dive into the main lead of Fate/Illya: Illyasviel von Einzbern
The Summer of Love III continues! We are now in the third season of Fate/Illya and before we switch gears into full Fate/Stay Night mode, we need to take a detour into wholesome junction. It’s all filler but plenty of killer this week, so after the cut let’s talk about the next arc in the series: Peaceful Days of Magical Girls!
