Fate/Apocrypha Episode 6: Back to the Servants


Alright, looks like we're back to Mordred...I suppose it's hard to be the main character in a seven vs. seven deathmatch. I'm gonna stop commenting on fight animation in this series because I feel like I say the same things every week. I think there's plenty more to say in this episode anyway.

Let's start with Mordred. From her perspective, I think her past wasn't particularly interesting. She's really easy to boil down to "Daddy didn't notice me". On the other hand, Arturia's motivations might be a bit more interesting. We've seen her vulnerabilities in other Fate series, so her reaction to a father-worshipping son is probably justified. Also, I'm not even gonna try with genders.

I didn't mind this, though...

I can't say I have an issue with sacrificing Gordes either.

This scene was just hilarious. Making Fran hate electricity is just a really nice touch.

I can't tell whether they're being serious with this character. She's literally Dr. Octopus right now. But all of that aside, the cliffhanger at the end of the episode feels a bit cheap. I get the sense that her brother (the glasses guy) will show up to save her and potentially die himself. His comment about summoning Fran with a Command Spell if he gets in trouble seems very much like a death flag. Surely, they wouldn't just make Fran disappear so early, right?
