A Summer Festival for Servants!

At the end of last month, the ever popular gacha mobage Fate/Grand Order celebrated its 3rd anniversary, throwing lots and lots of goodies (And a huge stash of Saint Quartzes woohoo!) and various anime series/movie announcements to the eager Masters all over the world.

Immediately after that, we’ve entered a new summer event that will last until the end of the month, featuring several highly sought after swimsuit Servants for Masters to deplete their reserves of Saint Quartz stashes in order for a less than 1% chance of hitting that SSR they wanted to roll for…

This new Summer singularity is the result of none other than our favourite little devilish kouhai from Fate/Extra CCC, the super A.I. BB-chan!

In a remote investigation/vacation mission to check on a possible reading of a Foreigner’s signal at the Hawaiian islands, we were drawn in and locked within the Groundhog Day-esque singularity where we’ll need to repeat a full week on the Hawaiian island over and over again.

Foxy Frame of an Extella Fate

A few weeks ago, I’ve managed to nab the recently released glasses frame themed with elements and design principles of Tamamo no Mae.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t until after settling a complication at the local custom terrorists (Holding my acquisition hostage, demanding a sum of extortion fees before releasing it to me after, while being ****oles all the way to boot… >,<) that I finally holding it proudly in my hands last weekend. =w=

Fate_Extella_EyeMirror_Collaboration_Tamamo_Frame_01

A collaboration between Fate/Extella and Butler Optical Shop/Eye Mirror, the frame costs about twice the usual price of my regular glasses, but nonetheless a unique addition to my eyesight-helping arsenal. 

Miko~n!

Servant Frames of an Extella Fate

In collaboration with Fate/Extella, Butler Optical Shop/Eye Mirror will release a couple more frames based upon the main heroines of the game. Earlier the year they too released a Nero-themed frame in red.

The shop has made many collaborations with anime series before, namely Fate/Stay Night Heaven’s Feel, Girls Und Panzer, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, as well as many other popular series.

“福”从天降

As the fiery rooster makes its exit, the Terran canine hounding towards a new lunatic year!

And a very happy Lunar New Year greeting from everyone’s favourite Rider, Astolfo!

For the uninitiated and those unfamiliar with the language, in the Chinese Fate community, Astolfo is given a pet name and most affectionately referred to as 阿福. The character 福 itself means good fortune. The term 福从天降 from the post title means “fortune falls from the sky” literally, which is translated as “may good fortune be blessed upon thee”.

Thus the pun with the trap above. XDc
