Fate/Apocrypha Episode 1 [First Impression]

Eva

My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

  1. After two years of absence from the Fate series (because seeing Illya being a mahou shoujo, a loli & a brocon in her own spin-off seriously turned me off), we’re back with Fate/Apocrypha setting in an alternate universe (which is a repeated theme for the Type-Moon verse) where the Einzberns screwed up the Third Holy Grail War by utilizing a Ruler-class servant (not Avenger-class Angra Mainyu like back in Fate/Zero & Fate/stay night) but ended up shooting themselves in the foot as the Greater Grail was relocated to Romania, and now the ultimate bloodbath between the Red Faction (or the Mage’s Association) & the Black Faction (with the Yggdmillennia rebels led by Darnic Prestone) is set to commence (around the time where the Fifth Holy Grail War is supposed to unfold in F/SN). In the words of Yuya: THE FUN (suffering) HAS JUST BEGUN! XD

    Another bonus for me is that this show has many of my favourite seiyuus I recognized in the past: Suwabe Junichi (Saber of Black), Okubo Rumi (Rider of Black), Sawashiro Miyuki (Saber of Red), Hayami Saori (Archer of Red), Yusa Koji (Lancer of Red), Uchiyama Koki (SHIROU KOTOMINE) & Namikawa Daisuke (Lord El-Melloi II/Waver Velvet).

    “I am really excited to see Jeanne d’Arc, she is a servant who I have always been eager to see the spotlight.”

    Haha, she’s THE “Ruler” class servant of this war, completely different from the original seven Servant classes. If you rewind time, she’s also the one Gilles de Rais (Fate/Zero Caster) deeply admired in his lifetime before he went astray.

    “He was the one servant after all that took out 49/50 of the Red Fractions’ men they had sent out. The only reason one survived as to simply serve as the messenger – and I can’t imagine that was pretty in any way.”

    Ahem, he wasn’t the one who killed them, though. It was the LANCER of Black who did it. If you see the way his victims were IMPALED, you can figure out his identity already. Additionally, he’s also the old guy sitting besides Darnic serving as the de facto leader of the Black Faction.

      DON’T REMIND ME OF THAT, OMFG, I COULDN’T STAND HIM OMG.

      Ah…. I didn’t see the dude so I suspected with Darnic’s presence it must’ve been Caster – but then again, he is the master of Golems, so that throws that right out the window. LOL. Forgive me, it was late last night! XDDDDDDD

      • “I didn’t see the dude so I suspected with Darnic’s presence it must’ve been Caster”

        He’s riding on a horse and can be seen behind Darnic. This war takes place in Romania, and the victims were IMPALED. If you still can’t figure what historic figure that associates Romania the most, then there’s nothing much I can say. But I can assure you it has nothing to do with Caster of Black or his desire to complete his Noble Phantasm.

    Apocrypha will have 25 episodes, so this’ll be a long investment should you choose to cover it.

      Yup I am aware, all of these things are being taken into consideration. That being said, it’s SO nice to finally have a fate series again with 25 episodes (like the good old days!)
