Good stuff. Can't have BB appear without a flood of gay fanart.

Sorry, I didn't really save any links. Most of the stuff I see are links to melonbooks from twitter for them to be purchased, although there are some short ones on twitter such as this https://twitter.com/yit_GLB/status/1012709234633465856

Nice meme type-moon. Props to not including kaleid as essential ;)
Also shout-out to the one true essential: Fate Labyrinth on minute 4:44. Blink and you'll miss it. The one type-moon story with surprise gay.

How about not having a high school boy next time or a two week old cardboard I mean homunculus, I feel like that would spice things up a bit. Just a thought.

That ending to Last Encore looked ascended, watching it live was great. I doubt it would make much more sense when it gets subbed. Watching them stand and talk there for 30+ minutes straight is hilarious. That excuse to have Nero's outfit get ripped apart is also hilarious. Gawain and Leo were the real heroes, goodbye zombie edgy Hakuno.

Nah, Homura's right. This is both meant to represent their first meeting in-game and be a parallel to that scene.

Yeah, but that already applies to every single character of the show. People are just justifiably salty since they showed her death during the first scene of the show for shock value.

A cynical take on using the FeMC for that GBF episode would be that it was a beach episode, so picking a female protagonist would mean another female character wearing a swimsuit to leer at.

Also I'd still say that Hakunon being the protagonist of Last Encore would've been a bigger disservice to her with the premise it had. The role and personality the protagonist of that show had was unflattering to say the least. Not to mention the role Hakunon had in that show also retroactively pushed her to be the canon protagonist of the games, so that's another good thing.

lol, Fate/Prototype is also nonexistent as a full anime series, so that doesn't count. Fate/Prototype's source material doesn't exist either, just a prequel series of light novels. That means TM can continue their streak of male masters in their anime adaptations.

Yeah, just 10 episodes. There is an upcoming 2 hour special (basically a movie at that point, the hell) that would serve as the end to this series this July 29, although I suspect it was a last minute decision. It kinda points to that since they already had a trailer and a release date for the bluray set for May, but it was suspiciously moved to August after the 2 hour special was announced. It was probably originally supposed to be a 13 episode anime that would end last April but then they saw the general reception and decided to push the release of the last arc to this month and revise how it went, or at least polish it.

Nah, while most people do (objectively and statistically) prefer the female protagonist, a good portion of that group also are just fine with watching with a male protagonist.

No, the thing that put people off is the other questionable decision they did- making a completely new scenario for the anime. Apparently the mindset was that it would cater to both newcomers to the series and viewers familiar with the source material. For the former, it was supposed to pique their interest enough to make them want to play the game or read the manga; while for the latter the all new scenario was supposed to surprise them and intrigue them.

In the end, what happened was that it confused both demographics with all the new stuff that they introduced. Didn't help that they tried to cram all the old world building and new story elements in 10 episodes with only 2 episodes per arc. Shame, since I thought the premise was good but the execution fell behind.

Not to mention, even if you somehow did prefer the male one, you didn't even get him in the anime. Instead you got the edgy boi version of him.

Arco Wada doing everyone a solid by giving Nero a matching outfit with Hakunon on Fate GO's anniversary. Now we got a burst of fanart like this one because of it. Good stuff.

You're not wrong SF. This artist was involved with the show, but I guess it's not enough for official tag, rip.

It was the first time they showed hakunon and nero interact cause theres a flashback of their time together in the first portion of the episode. It was some pretty sweet stuff.

@Minutoh

not explained yet. Based on the source material and the title being "Last Encore", I'm assuming it's the previous war's ending where nero and hakunon lost. Then fast forward to the current one where the male one exists and summons nero again. That's probably why it's called Last Encore, it's Nero's last encore/2nd attempt at the war after losing the first time.

Literally the very first scene of the fate extra anime is both hakunon and nero getting killed by the last boss of the video game source material. Hakunon is seen bleeding on the floor with no legs and a hole in her stomach, while nero fights the boss and eventually gets killed herself when she also gets a hole blown in her stomach.

「どこかでお会いしたかしら」was the tweet description for this picture, which google says translates to:
"I wonder if I met you somewhere".
Nice reference.
