With a cyberpunk/Alice in Wonderland vibe, this is a fun, gritty, fantastic adventure unlike anything I've seen.
Overall story is painfully, obviously the story for a mobile game. Fate's mental gymnastics for magic rules are rampant, but there's some great fight choreography, as well as inspirational dialogue and speeches.
A fun (though verbose) Fate/Zero spinoff that channels the vibes of Sherlock Holmes, Hogwarts, and the Fate Universe, with a myriad of cameos from other Fate entries.
The darkest “A Certain” entry yet that follows our antihero Accelerator. A more serious tone, some great fights, and a short, decent plot.
Studio ufotable flexes on the entire anime industry again with some of the most gorgeous art and animation, coupled with Yuki Kajiura's perfect soundtrack. Unfortunately, the "rules of magic" gymnastics and overly complicated philosophy was distracting and made it more difficult to immerse as the previous movies.
Much better than previous Index installments, not nearly as much eye-rolling ecchi, but a lot of the same sins. Villains are all good guys by the next arc, (and there are a lot of arcs) and the overarching plot is needlessly complex, and solved via deus-ex machina anyway.
This sequel is more of the same Yuki Yuna fare, making it a somewhat mediocre follow up to what feels like a one-hit wonder.
A decent prequel, has some cries, but they feel a bit shallow/forced. There isn't as much of an emotional dynamic/contrast, but it still has merit, especially the music.
The movie is the best in the Index series, but that isn't saying much. Animation is improved, but it still bears all the sins of the series: Constant exposition, convoluted plot, and the same tired ecchi jokes. It also ignores the ending of Index II despite taking place right after it.
