This is only the first of the much awaited releases – for those with little knowledge of the Type-Moon universe, they might not find much interest in this excellent array of OVAs however. Unless you are familiar with either Tsukihime, Melty Blood, or Fate/Stay, you’ll find yourself assaulted with continual ray of terrible jokes, gibberish, and idiocy – it will likely only be found funny due to how horrible it is.
What is one to receive if they are well acquainted with any or all of Type-Moon’s complicated universe? The same exact things, although considering you understand the references, the characters, and the environments – seeing our beloved heroine Saber dance around in an overly cute feminine manner is quite a treat. Fans of the adorable other females of Type-Moon’s astonishingly creative world need not worry either as this initial OVA delivers a rather fine taste of things to come.
We’re gifted with the sight of Caster’s subtly pink panties during a round of tennis with Berserker. Yet the most delicious display of eye-candy undoubtedly comes from Arcueid as Type-Moon delivers some delectable angles of her assets in standard mahou shoujo dress – alongside the nice sight of her collection of underwear.
As Shiki’s nosebleed implies, this simple series of OVAs, Carnival Phantasm, a mere single episode in is already proving to be “too good”. If this first episode is any indication, the remaining few will likewise be a mere 13 minute ordeal – although with what we have seen, those are 13 minutes well spent.
Adorable elegant loli Illyasviel serves as the host of this wonderful affair of foolishness – for this episode at least. This one had a heavier focus on Fate/Stay characters, yet Illyasviel mentioned the next to be about “Melty Blood”.
