I thought is was funny when Arc used her arc drive, but other than that....

HARR~~

Basically, this is TYPE-MOON's version of Disney's House of Mouse: a special cross-over of TYPE-MOON characters all housed under one roof. I can't comment much because I haven't watched almost all of its titles except for Kara no Kyoukai (wonder why this isn't included). It's light-hearted stuff and something for me to burn my precious leisure time.

I wonder what would happen if CLAMP has its own version. Huh, it reckon it would be the most aneroxic, boring special ever :U

If you haven't played the VNs, you won't get the jokes. Every Type Moon anime except Kara no Kyokai suck, so having watched them doesn't help.

Anyway, since I have played the VNs, I can see just how much care has been put into these episodes. So much attention to details. Absolutely hilarious. This is the first series I'm going to buy BDs for this year. Completely worth the money.

If you've played or have extensive knowledge of the following...
1) Fate/Stay Night
2) Fate/Hollow Ataraxia
3) Tsukihime
4) Kagetsu Tohya
5) Melty Blood
6) Battle Moon Wars
and if you are a type-moon fan

... then this series will possibly be the most brilliant anime that you've ever watched. Everything from the game-show holy grail war to Berserker on his first errand, is so packed full of fan service that you won't be able to help yourself but smile and laugh through the entire 13-14mins of each episode. Its also the first interactive anime I've seen, in which the viewers decide what will happen in a later episode! Extremely well written and animated, its pretty much the perfect anime for type-moon fans.

I don't think I stopped laughing through the entire episode. I am impressed.

Episode 1

Holy crap.   This actually had a budget?  I was expecting stills and Adobe Flash animations.

I recommend Mobile Suit, RX-0 and Unicorn from the Unicorn OST.

Up to now, even though I don't really grasp the content (i.e. the inside jokes, references) but even so, I actually thought this show had its laughs and that surprises me. If there's one thing I would praise it on, it's the comedic execution: the Astro Fighter Sunred-like gags are quite effective.
