As someone who has seen the original Fate/stay Night and the UBW movie, this series is pretty awkward for me to approach. I’m assuming this first episode was meant to give the numerous Tohsaka Rin fans out there something to gush about. I admit she’s a better character than Emiya Shirou is, but I’m guessing the focus switches back to him from here on out. If you add in the bits from the “preview” segment with the fact that this episode is called a prologue, it makes sense that next week will be a re-telling from Shirou’s perspective.
The songs at the end both sounded pretty sweet. The first half sounded like it might be an opening song, which inspires a bit of confidence. The second half sounded like another piece from the soundtrack…no complaints here. I still think it’s very difficult for me to stay relevant when talking about this show given how much I know of the story…I guess I still have some time to make a decision.
