Fate/Zero - "Scream of a Mad Beast" - Episode 5 Recap

When Rider enters the battlefield, rather than fight he asks Lancer and Saber whether or not they’d be interested in forming an alliance with him and conquering the world.

Guilty Crown - "void-sampling" - Episode 3 Recap

Having turned down Gai’s offer to join the Funeral Parlors (in my first recap I referred to them as the Undertakers, FUNi is using a different translation), Shu Ouma thought he had returned to his normal life. As he sits in class pondering whether or not he made the right decision, his professor states that […]

Fate/Zero - "The Demon Spear" - Episode 4 Recap

The fourth episode of Fate/Zero, “The Demon Spear,” featured the first (real) fight of the Holy Grail War between Saber and Lancer. The past three episodes had a lot of setup regarding the rules of the game, the masters and servants involved and the dynamics of the relationships between them. This worked well in easing […]

Fate/Zero - "The Land of Fuyuki" - Episode 3 Recap

I mentioned in my last recap that I was hoping episode three of Fate/Zero would amp up the action and feature a fight between two or more servants.

Guilty Crown - "Genesis" - Episode 1 Recap

Guilty Crown is easily the most anticipated anime premiere of the season. Already licensed by FUNimation, Guilty Crown is airing on Fuji TV’s noitaminA block and is produced by Production I.G. The hype surrounding it is both a positive and negative thing, boosting the number of people tuning in but also creating high expectations. With […]

Fate/Zero - "False Start" - Episode 2 Recap

Like the first episode, the second episode of Fate/Zero “False Start” is light on actual fighting. Instead, it focuses on a few of the master/servant pairings and the dynamics of their relationships. As we get deeper in the war these moments will likely be sparse, so for now I will happily take the characterization. This […]
