That was something 🤔
Spoilers ahead.Continue reading
Lottery box event is suddenly here. No challenge quest this time but we get this weird tactical game instead. I guess you could play it “proper” with multiple servants going together and buff each other and stuff but I learned that the easiest way is just to send off Heracles and let him do his thing. The third skill power up he has just gotten recently especially helped; allowing him to one-turn everyone.
The box themselves is, well, box farming as usual. Thankfully the last map also doubles as farming for all shop materials so I’ve been doing that and slowly clearing up the shop. I don’t even need any event CE other than the lottery bonus.
Lottery box here as well. I’m also slowly going through the challenge quests. I’m in way more better shape compared to last year so I should be able to clear everything… I think.
Unlike JP, there’s no good node to farm everything at once so I’m currently farming the bronze item first. Or just started after sticking around at the lottery ticket node non stop for the first few days.
Thanks to all the box items, my servant upgrades sure are going smoothly.
There’s no screenshot that’s good enough and not spoilerific. Not that anyone hasn’t guessed yet and the more I write the clearer what it’s about.
Spoilers ahead.Continue reading
So I forgot to actually post last week’s. Not like there’s much to say anyway.
Hm, so there’s someone else behind all the fights even 2000 years ago? 🤔
What’s with Eleonore at the end of ep. 11 even.
With two episodes left, I guess we’ll only get as far as figuring out what’s happened to Hero Kanon?
Finished challenge quest in lazy mode with help of friend Abigail summer. And Merlin (and Mash). It took 25 turns but could’ve been faster had I not been focusing too much on Bunyan.
It’s 21M download campaign after summer event and still ongoing until tomorrow. So I’ve been clearing strengthening quests and just farming hands. Not that I need many exp cards anymore so the extras will just become mana prisms.
Timing wise, Gil fest should be coming up next but there’s usually a rerun of something in between. The timing will be pretty difficult though. We’ll find out soon.
Finally cleared F/Z rerun. Farming the nodes were pretty annoying so I ended up not buying the monuments and pieces. I did clear the other mats though.
The challenge quest wasn’t the first for me but I’ve forgot the gimmick etc. I cleared it first run thanks to friend Cu Alter. First bar of both were pretty easy but it gets really annoying once the permanent and frequent def buffs for Diarmuid activates. I didn’t bring any buff clearer either so it got pretty slow at that point. Thankfully Cu Alter just rip through everything once he’s the remaining servant on the field.
Now I’m preparing for Gil fest… kind of. I think I need to at least bring Skadi skill 1 to level 10 for 10/7/10. And maybe Atalante’s skill 1 to 10 as well.
Now I wrote it, I realized I haven’t prepared anything for the exhibition quests. My overall lineup is better compared to my main JP and I’m not restricting anything for this account so it should be easier. I hope.
Aaaaand that was not quite expected.Continue reading
Still slowly progressing through the event story. At least I did finish the main story and now clearing the extra part.
The appearance of Okita summer was a nice surprise.
As for challenge quest, considering the time I’ll probably just end up doing what I did for my older account – Voyager, Mash, and Merlin party.
Hmm Fate/Zero rerun. The number of currencies sure is stupid. At least gathering them isn’t too difficult and the free event CE provides NP charge so that helps.
No rolls because I’m still saving and I don’t need any particular servant anyway. Although some Zerklot or NP2 Emiya sure would be nice.
Late because I was too lazy to write this.
So the teacher who’s reborn as mixed blood retired. That was short. A bit disappointed. The new teacher seems like more forgiving about Anos.
The new girl from Hero Academy sure seems like she knows something about the (actual) hero.
Is this the last arc for current adaptation?
Wow that was a nothing episode. Well, almost nothing.
Yui’s wish ended up reflecting back to Hachiman with her determined to grant his wish instead.
Next episode will be about the teacher according to the title? The preview shows prom though. Hmm ?_?
Still slowly going through the story. I’ve been a bit busy with other stuff so I’ve even been farming QP instead of event mats as I’ve cleared most of the shop.
Interestingly they released older Mashu summer costume in Rare Prism shop. I bought that as I’ve got quite a few extra RPs.
Otherwise nothing too exciting. I heard the challenge quest this time isn’t too difficult either. That should work out just fine for me as as I’ve mentioned above, I’m rather busy with other stuff at the moment.
It’s been half AP exp card farming week. Next week is Fate/Zero collab event rerun. It’s one of the older event and the CEs used aren’t of limited time. I’ve got some of them so farming shouldn’t be too bad.
I still don’t have Angra Mainyu though. I cleared up my friend points last week and got nothing.
I originally planned to roll for Waver on this event but I got him unexpectedly early few months ago so there’s nothing I really need at this event’s banner although Lancelot would be nice. But then again I don’t have Kaleidoscope so he won’t be as useful anyway and NP1 Lancelot can’t quite deal enough damages in some cases.
I’m still recovering from my roll for Salter summer (and Jannu summer) so my SQ situation isn’t exactly good at the moment anyway. The 10 ticket coming up soon is nice but I need to save for Okita (and Musashi) next summer. Oh, and Merlin.
That was quick and painless (in most part). Spoilers ahead maybe?Continue reading
That was a lot of battles. Anos vs Lay of course, the following battle was also quite something with Anos being put in some kind of disadvantages although unfortunately the villain is in the wrong anime.
Next week is about… Hero Academy? Um what.
Late because I lacked sleep at the broadcast day.
The rap sure wasn’t expected, lol.
That student council president ended up being more useful than expected giving Hachiman team relatively good feedback.
At current rate it looks like this will be the last arc? Or second last?
It took me until the end to realize what the episode title actually means. Poor Yui having to observe them until the end.
It’s summer! It’s camping time! Or something. Now I think about it, first one wasn’t even really limited to sea but a whole island. Second one… I’m not even sure if there’s sea element at all. First part was like various places and second part was just prison area. Third one is the closest one being sea-themed but just like first one it was also a whole island which has mountain as well. And lastly last year was… Las Vegas. It’s fucking desert.
I guess they’ve never done exclusively sea-themed to begin with!
This one though is pretty much just mountain. It’s got lake but that’s about it.
Also it’s got Illya summer which I thankfully was able to get with limited amount of stones.
Still going slowly through the quests. Weirdly enough I’m almost done with the store even though I’m barely halfway through the story.
Meanwhile on my old account, I’ve been trying to get Castoria. A bit over 300 rolls and she hasn’t appeared at all ;_; Not only that, I haven’t even gotten any SSR servant at all. The probability for that to happen is 5% which is kinda ridiculous. There’s still one last day but I’m not holding my breath. I’ll just get over with it and try again next time =[
Meanwhile in NA, summer is over. I cleared the whole store just in time. Oh, I said I’m not rolling anything but that was a lie. I did end up rolling for Jeanne summer.
And unlike my old JP account, thankfully I got her in 23 rolls.
While she isn’t all that useful for now, she should be pretty useful once Castoria comes out… in two years…
And I still don’t have Lancelot. I haven’t gotten Kaleidoscope either. I can’t use my Skadi in full ;_; Considering I won’t pull for anything until next summer, this will be a rather annoying year. At least Skadi and Waver together make good NP charger.
Coming next (after the 11M download) would be Fate/Zero collab rerun. I still haven’t gotten Angra Mainyu…
So I was walking around Akiba last weekend (which I probably shouldn’t have) and noticed one of the vending machines is selling this. I’m not sure how common it is but this is the first time I noticed it (ever) and I figured might as well try it. It’s Oregairu’s Hachiman favorite drink and apparently the writer’s (Watari Wataru) as well?
I haven’t tried it but apparently it’s on the “very sweet” end of sweet beverage ranks.
That fight song sure was amazing lol.
Nice highlight on Unionist members this week. And Anos’ mother also did pretty great not getting tricked and holding on until rescue arrived.
And RIP the teacher. Looking forward on what she’ll do next.
Spoiler free =)
Also be careful when going out during this period. Mask etc. Waiting for blu-ray is probably preferred.
This series sure last very long time. Not just the various spinoffs and stuff but even the main story has just only finished getting animated this year. Also interesting this is one of the few VN adaptations which have all the routes covered.
By the magic of living nearby movie theater and looking at the seating at perfect timing, I managed to watch this on release day.
Loads of cool fights which are only possible by the anime media. ufotable didn’t disappoint as usual. Everyone got their own cool moments with highlight of course Emiya’s fights.
The only complaint I have would be the epilogue focused a bit too much on Sakura and Rin with almost nothing else getting explanation.
The quote is very HF-Shirou.
Pretty long post o_oContinue reading
That was a relatively quiet episode. With some bits of infodump.
That sword looks pretty similar to the one in ending video…?
5th anniversary events have started trickling in. The Memorial Quests so far are quite easy.
The strengthening quests are pretty interesting too with Phantom getting a long overdue buff. It’s almost copy-pasted from Alexander but almost better if not for only 90% maximum chance. It sure would be nice if they increase the rate as well but he’s got the debuff rate buff so maybe it’s fine. There’s nothing more to it though so his usefulness is still rather questionable.
Darius buff is pretty good one though. While not buff, buster def down for enemies is pretty close. This also brought him even further from Kiyohime who is already underpowered.
The last one from yesterday was David and he finally got his anti-giant damage boost. His skill set is already plenty good so this just makes him slightly more useful.
There’s only one low rarity servant buff remaining and I heard it’ll be more buff for Cu OG. That doesn’t sound quite right because he already has his NP buff and his skill set is pretty much overpowered. A buff for Cu proto instead would be welcome.
As for the rest higher rarity servants, I so far don’t have any of them, lol. I don’t usually use them either so I don’t know how much improvements they are. The Gubijin buff of buff removal resistance seems to be the most useful.
The CE banner is just weird so I’m skipping it.
Next update will probably be after their live stream on Monday. The timing is pretty annoying because while it’s holiday, it’s also the last long weekend day which means there isn’t much time to fully enjoy whatever updates they put out. Especially if they also start summer event simultaneously – then it’ll be a pretty big update to digest.
As I mentioned in a post earlier, I managed to get Salter summer during last day of her banner. That was nice. I also cleared the events barely on time.
Summer Fes has started and I mentioned earlier I don’t have spare gems/tickets at the moment so I only did single pull of Jeanne banner and got Fuuma. It was pretty much expected to miss.I wonder if I should try Dantes banner as well. Maybe I’ll do just one. Rolls as typing this… and the result is… Alexander. Ha ha ha 😐
Anyway! My current progress for the event itself is one sixth purely from the doujin power perspective. It should be pretty accurate. I don’t remember the most efficient way to clear this so for now I’m clearing the currency store first. I still need 1800 Gil dollars and over 3000 of the other two dollars. This will take a while but the event will be up for another two weeks. There should be enough time to clear everything.
I see. So that’s how they’ll be doing it. Spoilers ahead?Continue reading
That was a relatively simple episode. And for a change it’s not so much as Anos showing off his power but more like he having some fun at least for the latter part.
I half expected the three people team is final but apparently it’s not. Not sure about the Unitarian folks though and how they’ll contribute to the story.
Provoked by someone in my friend list having NP2 of her, I used up all this month’s tickets which thankfully netted something.
This also means I have no tickets for upcoming summer banners. Yay.
Same deal as the opening. The cover for this one is the new anime style instead of Ponkan 8.
And instead of poster, the extra is a mini clear file. Either are equally useless.
Oh boy. That emotional ride.
It’s a thing. I forgot about it but it’s nothing rare. They sure recycled the cover well.
The thing on the left is “dekajake” (big jacket?). I haven’t taken out the plastic wrap but it sure looks like a color printed paper of the cover image enlarged. It’s almost shikishi-sized just a bit short.
The B3 poster is reversible with the other side being the photo of yanaginagi herself.
I’ll need to rip the CD sometime. I suspect I haven’t even opened the CDs for S2 theme songs so I’ll do that as well.
Finished the event! I didn’t want to bother thinking for challenge quest so I cleared it with command seals.
I also got this rather useless servant to NP5. That sure is something. If only he appears on my NA account instead.
Current event won’t end until next week but apart of a bit of farming I’m mostly done with it. Will be back to farming green cubes, I guess.
Summer 2019 Rerun! Salter summer pickup! Chance for NP2! Except I didn’t get her. I did 180 rolls and the only SR or above servants I got were three copies of Helena summer. She’s pretty useful as I still don’t have Kaleidoscope but an actual Kaleidoscope sure would be nice. And Salter summer.
With that, I emptied my SQ and tickets. I guess I won’t be rolling for Edmond. Or Jannu summer. Or anyone. Until next year for Okita summer. Hopefully I will gather enough fund by then.
Meanwhile on the event itself, I’ve finished the main story and challenge quests. First part, as I mentioned last week, I used command seals but for the second part I finished it without. Shiki and Jannu sure can go a long way.
I’m still rather far behind on farming but the event is ending soon. It looks like I’ll be mostly farming for this event this weekend.
And, well, everyone live on and happily ever after. Of course. The ring mentioned last week also made appearance. No surprise here either.
New arc next week.
I remembered to check this during broadcast time but as it turned out just having Amazon Prime (Video) isn’t enough for watching during premiere. Thus to the high seas I went (or just wait because I’ve set up things).
CCC done. I did finish it with the least amount of effort. Apparently the repeatable last quest can be repeated indefinitely by unlocking it with rare prism?
Ooku has started and it’s a lot of no-battle quests. Thankfully they fixed the loading screen problem.
As for Anniversary and Summer announcements, it looks like we’ll be getting early info on Famitsu just like last few years.
At any rate, August 10th will be the start of either Summer or Anniversary event. Or both.
Part 2 starts today. I think. The nice thing about this event is it’s twice the store and thus fous. Also nice the CEs are mostly shared.
On semi-related note, I finished the first challenge quest with some help of command seals.
I’m not sure what to do with Salter Maid banner yet.
