Weekly FGO vol. 44

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.

Oregairu kan ep. 7

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 =[

NA

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…

Randomly Max Coffee

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.

Fate/stay night HF3

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.

Poster thingy in the theater. It’s not quite visible from this photo but there are multiple layers of it
“Today open!!” “I promise, I’ll be Sakura’s hero of justice -Emiya Shirou”

The quote is very HF-Shirou.

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.

NA

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.
