Your Takes — Your Impressions of Unlimited Blade Works

We are now three episodes in to Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, ufotable’s highly anticipated remake of the Fate/stay night franchise. What do you think about this anime so far?

Is Urobuchi Gen writing this? That means Shirou is as good as dead.

The Tsundertaker

Not only could Saber damage Berserker in episode 3 (contrary to Fate/stay night, where her sword couldn’t penetrate his skin), Berserker is at least 8 inches taller in the visual novel. Not to mention, the shade of Sakura’s eyes are at least 3 shades off in this anime when compared to the game. Archer’s noble phantasm is also totally wrong. This crap can hardly be called a remake; how dare ufotable take such gross liberties against a franchise as revered and sacrosanct as Fate? Hopefully Hoods Entertainment will come along and give us a real remake that Fate fans deserve.

Fate/stay High

Is Rin in this anime? I can’t recognize her without her zettai ryouiki.
