Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works Episode 12 (Finale) – Fun Times. Dull Times. Conflict.

(I actually have notes for all episodes. When will they go up on the blog? At some pointâ„¢. Check the “Episodic Notes Page“, where they’ll all appear eventually. Hopefully this week.)

This episode came out at 3:30 AM. I was awake, but trying to get my sleep schedule even nominally under control, and being as it was a double feature, I decided to go to sleep. With that out of the way, last episode had a lot of gag moments, funny faces, and tsundere-Rin, which was enjoyable but empty calories, and another session of “Shirou discusses philosophy with Rin/Archer”, which was much meatier, but didn’t entirely add up in terms of internal logic. I expect a lot of sweet action this episode, so let’s go.

Thoughts and Notes:
