Fate/Zero’s second Blu-ray box is boasting a comedic gag trailer to aide in its promotional campaign – a video which, just as with the first BD set, turns the typically serious 2-D cast into lighthearted victims of jest.
Of course, with the general disposition of this marketing piece being upbeat and colorful – it means moe would be more appropriate in place of sorrow, darkness, and brooding. And indeed, the video is spearheaded by the cuteness of Irisviel – filling the screen with her gentle presence, however, seemingly not meaning that the clip is automatically excluded of violence and bleeding.
This video is packed with gunfire and all manner of horrid brutality, such as sanguine spilling from the eye sockets – although it’s all presented in a very propelled fashion which doesn’t even take itself seriously.
Of all prevalent aspects however, one can and should be most thankful for the return of the bishoujo outfitted in visibly no more than a track jacket – she’s incredibly adorable, and to have her playful attitude in conjunction with the always delightful Irisviel, one can confirm that indeed, even when it comes to moe, Fate/Zero still succeeds above all. Although, even with expectations surpassed, it’s not as if any less was anticipated – Ufotable has proven themselves impervious to failure after all.
Now the only remaining issue, even if one wanted to purchase the Blu-ray box set, the price of approximately $450 USD or so is not particularly inviting or friendly.
