3 Days 3 Quotes Tag (Day 2)

This is day two of 3 Days 3 Quotes. I can’t believe it’s almost over already… Ha! That’s a little glass half-empty humour, something that wouldn’t sit too well with the owner of today’s quote.

If you missed Day 1, don’t worry. You can find it here.

All right, let’s get on with Day 2.

“Whatever you do, enjoy it to the fullest. That is the secret of life.”

If you’ve seen Fate/Zero then you’ll be familiar with Rider laughing and drinking and just generally doing whatever he wants. He reminds me of the vikings in The Thirteenth Warrior who basically did the same thing for the entire movie.

So, this is another great quote in my mind. Sure, there are times when we’re doing crappy things that don’t really fulfil us, but if we could just enjoy ourselves a little more wouldn’t that be considerably more bearable.

All of the most enjoyable jobs I’ve had were more about the people I worked with and less about the work being done. It just goes to show that if you are enjoying yourself, even the most mundane tasks can fly by. Basically, it doesn’t hurt to have a positive attitude.

Seriously, which one of these two looks to be having more fun? I’ll give you a clue, it’s not the grumpy looking one in the bottom left corner.

Nomination

With my second nomination, I choose… animeandfanfiction. Again, no pressure. Feel free to ignore if it’s not something you want to do.

The next quote is coming tomorrow, same place, same time. See you then!

Fate/Extra: Last Encore – Season Two

What did you watch and why? I’ve had mixed feelings with the whole Fate series. Earlier in the year, I watched the first season and it left things wide open, so when the second season appeared, I felt like I had to finish things off.

One line pitch! The spirits of ancient heroes fight in a digital world that is the last bastion of humanity…

What’s it really about? Who the hell knows? We join the characters from the end of season one as they ascend to the sixth level, where the guardian awaits them. There’s a lot of talking, mostly one-sided as everyone seems to be happy to not interrupt each other. Then there’s a couple of massive attacks and it’s all over…

Fate/Extra: Last Encore – Season One

Hakuno finds himself in a strange world with no recollection of his past. It appears to be a school, but things appear to be off. A countdown begins. His friend stabs in him in the back and leaves him for dead. He wakes sometime later and is pursued by a dark avatar.

He stumbles across an ornate theatre where he finds a sword. When he touches the sword, a heroic spirit appears and makes a pack with him. She defeats the avatar and together they progress to the next level.

The heroic spirit, Saber, brings Hakuno up to speed. It would appear that he has found himself in a digital version of the Holy Grail War. In order to win the grail he must defeat the guardians and move through the levels, but not everything is quite as it seems. Continue reading “Fate/Extra: Last Encore – Season One”

Fate/Zero – Season Two

Caster has created a colossal demon. He plans to put on a spectacle for God to watch. Saber, Lancer, and Rider fight to stop him, while Archer and Berserker battle high in the skies overhead. Tokiomi Tosaka, Rin’s father, reveals what a lousy piece of work he is when confronted by Kariya Mato.

Lancer destroys one of his weapons to allow Saber to heal and use her Noble Phantasm, which is their only chance to stop Caster. Kiritsugu watches from above through the sight of his sniper rifle before taking out Caster’s master, but even that’s not enough to stop Caster.

The battle for the Holy Grail has intensified and the masters are revealing their true colours. Once again, Kiritsugu doesn’t appear as bad as they first made out. At least he’s always been honest about his methods. It’s all about to get nasty. Continue reading “Fate/Zero – Season Two”
