Fate/Extra Last Encore T.V. Media Review Episode 8

Dead or alive?

Well, looks like we’ve hit the 5th floor. This floor does not have a Floor Master. Additionally, the ladder to the next the floor is already down. All one has to do is get to it. Sounds easy, right? Unfortunately a monster lurks on this floor. Avoiding him and his servant is the goal of our trio, but nothing ever comes easy in life. Julius and Assassin, await any who would dare cross their path. Especially a fake such as, Hakuno. The battle between these two parties leaves Hakuno and Nero heavily wounded. Luckily a shadowy giant interrupts today’s battle. Our heroic duo cling onto life by a mere string, for now at least.

All right, a few things to go over with this episode. One, the 4th floor has been skipped. According to Saber that floor was a cake walk. So, there is no need to show such filler. Moreover, this episode went into depth about the meaning of Dead Face. Now, this has been hinted at over several episodes. If you haven’t figured it out yet, then Hakuno is the amalgamation of hatred from all those who have fallen during the war. He is nothing more than a avatar for all those who have died. Their malice has given him form in order to carry out what they could not. Lastly, we’re given some insight into, Twice. He is the man that Hakuno once faced on the final floor. Twice, is a winner of this war, however his wish could not be completed. The true reason for this isn’t clearly stated yet, so we’ll save that for later. Anyhow, let’s get this explanation on the way. Enjoy the media!
