Apologies again for the significant delay…both Monty and I have had a rough couple of weeks. The final episodes will also be appearing in batch review form as soon as we can get around to them.
Hey all, this will be my last FI for the season and my last review for a few months. As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, I’ll be taking a break from blogging this season to focus on a big school project as my graduation nears. See you guys again in the Spring season, hopefully!
“S2” is going to be the shorthand I use for all second season anime that don’t have new titles.
First, an open letter to Netflix: screw you. Nobody is ever happy about you guys getting the license to an anime, because for some reason you don’t seem to understand that anime fans like to watch things as they air an episode at a time. Literally no one wants to wait until the show has finished airing and then watch it all at once. Legal streams are supposed to combat piracy, not encourage it. I have a personal policy where I try not to watch anything that I can’t watch legally (although I do sometimes have to make exceptions for First Impressions), but I couldn’t pass up a new Fate and I wasn’t going to wait 6 goddamn months to see even one episode. For that reason, as awesome as this first episode was, out of sheer good faith I won’t be blogging it, but I’m still doing this first impression after resorting to fansubs. Seriously, screw you Netflix, get a clue already. At least don’t act surprised if people aren’t willing to wait for a show you’re holding hostage for 6 months when literally ever other licensing company in this day and age does simulcasts.
