Fate/Grand Order THE MOVIE – Divine Realm of the Round Table: Camelot: Wandering; Agateram: I just bit my Tongue

There is no stopping the train of Fate, and neither is the series! Fate/Grand Order is a game I love dearly (saving up for Caster Artoria right now!), and with the game being so popular, it is natural for it to get anime adaptations. And so far the ones that I have seen have been pretty good! Will that stay the same for this installment! Well after the cut let’s take a dive into (deep breath) Fate/Grand Order THE MOVIE – Divine Realm of the Round Table: Camelot: Wandering; Agateram and find out!

Say that title three times fast.

Fate/Stay Night’s Shirou Emiya and Saber: Selfless People, Selfless Love

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.

My thoughts on the relationship of Shirou Emiya and Rin Tohsaka are right here!

Studio Deen’s Fate/Stay Night: A Boy, A Girl, A Holy Grail War

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.

My thoughts on the visual novel version of the route can be found right here!

Stay the Night.

Fate Apocrypha Episodes 1-12: Make the Grail War Great Again

While The Summer of Love has concluded, that doesn’t mean I’m done talking about Fate! Getting ahead of my previous house keeping schedule, I’ve been watching another in the long list of Fate spin-offs. Back when I started the blog I gave a quick overview of these series, but I have been revisiting them now that I’m more comfortable as a blogger. With that said, let’s take a dive into the first half of Fate/Apocrypha after the cut!

It’s gonna be so great. With blackjack, and hookers!

The Summer of Love III: Fate/Illya 3rei Episodes 7-12: Battle against the Ainsworths

The Summer of Love III continues! We are now at the final arc of the anime series (so far), and we are heading straight into the action. There’ll be swords, there’ll be mud, and there’ll be Kuro making everything she wears way more proactive than it should be. Plenty to get to, so let’s get the final arc: Battle against the Ainsworths after the cut!

Throw swords? Nah, try punching a sword in the air.

The Summer of Love III: Let’s Talk about Kuro

The Summer of Love III continues! We have wrapped up our look at the first season, and the second season will be getting started next week. However before we do that, I feel like we need to take a moment to discuss something important. A character whose arrival into the series changes up how many view the show, and absolutely is…well…something. After the cut, it’s finally time to talk about Kuro.

Don’t look so innocent, you know what you did!

Well this week we wrap up our examination of Fate/Illya’s first season with a look at the second ‘arc’ (because this series doesn’t really have those, but let’s just roll with it): Illya’s Resolve! Plenty to get into, so let’s not waste anymore time!

Illya goes all EMIYA up in this shit.

The Summer of Love III: A Fate/Illya Primer!

Hey guys

The Summer of Love III, our three month look at the series Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya will begin at the start of June. However before we get started I wanted to throw up a post, like I did with High School DxD and Date A Live to answer some questions and lay out how everything is going to go. Please note somethings are subject to change depending on life goes, but I’m pretty sure I can manage it. Let’s get into it after the cut!

Laying shit out like Mimi is writing her boylove stories.

The Summer of Love III with Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya

Hey guys.

For the last two years, I have undergone a summer project. I dive into a series, going into every aspect of its seasons, main characters and give my thoughts on the journey from start to finish. The first time I revisited one of my favorite series of all time: High School DxD, and next year I took a look at the remarkably solid Date A Live.

For the third year, I am once again looking into another series, one that I’ve been planning to do since probably the first year. With that I am proud to reveal The Summer of Love III, which will be about a series that all Fate fans know, love, or at least tolerate.
