So recently I rode shotgun on a watch through of the critically acclaimed Neon Genesis Evangelion, and while I understand the history behind it, I just couldn’t bring myself to say: “Wow that’s one of the best anime I’ve ever seen.” Maybe it is because I’m not a big fan of the genre, or maybe it is because I couldn’t really connect with the characters, but it wasn’t doing it for me. So while Dil is writing about it (Spoiler, he is), I’ll write about an anime I really think is the best I’ve ever seen: Fate/Zero.


This series is so good that I have almost decided to abandon my golden rule to play the visual novels, and I think I have watched it four times start to finish. The incredible idea to make King Arthur a woman and pair her with a broken man whose only real difference to her is that he decided to cross a line she couldn’t in the quest for power. A young boy who sought power and found a lesson subconsciously whilst his partner found it in the last moments of his own life: the beating of our hearts is all the more worth fighting for. A young priest who completely shattered and desired to watch the world burn because they’re playing basketball, we love that basketball.

Yes, there are many touching storylines throughout this series, and the beautiful animation is simply a plus. Amazing fights across nightlife or shrines, chases across highways, and of course Basketball is my favorite sport, I like the way they dribble up and down the court. Really I just find Saber to be rocking hot, don’t you? I mean that’s the entire reason most people are interested in this garbage anyways, I mean just like I’m the King on the microphone, so is Dr. J and Moses Malone.

Really when it comes down to it, this series presents itself as something entirely different from stay night in that it is a lot darker and removed from a lot of the problems (cough Shirou cough) it had, which I find more and more ironic because Nasu didn’t write Fate/Zero or Fate/Apocrypha, and I find both of them to be superior. In addition, I like Slam-dunks, take me to the hoop, my favorite play is the alley-oop, I like the pick-and-roll, I like the give-and-go cause it’s basketball.

You know, in reality, I’m ashamed to be a fan of the Fate franchise. The fan base is toxic, with copious amounts of “Best Girl” talks that are matched in childish temper tantrums as they are the amount of Vaseline that gets wasted on hentai for the characters. In fact, the closest I can relate to anything in Evangelion was in End of Evangelion when Asuka stood over Shinji and kept murmuring “pathetic.” over and over again because that’s exactly how these weeaboos make me feel. Clyde, Rick Barry, and Pistol Pete,Now these players, could never be beat,Isiah, and Iceman too,Just give ‘em the ball, and then you talk up too, Dantley and Wilkins are on the scene, And Ralph Sampson is really mean, Bill Russell didn’t take no junk, and Darryl Dawkins got a monster dunk, Tell me, were you in the joint?, The night Wilt scored 100 points, Or when Celtics won titles back-to-back, And didn’t give nobody, no kind of slack, Or when Dr. J shook the whole damn team, With moves that came right out of a dream, Or when, Willis Reed stood so tall, Playing D with desire, it’s Basketball.
