Hi fellas !
Ever heard the title before?
Well, if you're an anime enthusiast, let's just say if you're an otaku, you'll likely know what this post is about. I'm talking about anime titled Fate Stay Night, Unlimited Blade Works.
Fuyuki City—a city surrounded by the ocean and the mountains becomes the setting for an age-old ritual. To realize the mythical Holy Grail, which is said to grant any wish from its possessor, seven masters are given seven heroic spirits chosen by the Grail. These heroic spirits or servants are: Saber, Lancer, Archer, Rider, Caster, Assassin, Berserker. Each master will enter into a contract with their assigned servants and battle the other masters and servants to the death until only one pair remains... This is the "Holy Grail War." This story focuses primarily on the heroine Rin Tohsaka. After her father's death, Rin enters the Holy Grail War as the sole heir to the prestigious Tohsaka Household, with her servant Archer. But, she soon finds out that Shirou Emiya, a boy from her high school has gotten himself involved in the battles and unexpectedly saves him when he is fatally injured. Before long, Rin sets out to strike down the conspiracies surrounding the Holy Grail War along with Shirou and his summoned servant Saber. And so, the story begins to explore the truth behind Shirou’s powers and the nature behind his unyielding will to become a "hero."

This anime is currently airing the 2nd season this spring. Due to lack of vocabularies, firstly i apologize for my simple summary. This anime is based on fate light novel series. Fate series *as i know* tell us the stories about holy grail war, the war between the master (the summoner) and the servant (subject who’s got superb ability to fight). The masters are chosen by holy grail. Along with their servant, they will be fighting to death, till one remains to claim holy grail. It’s said if you get the holy grail, what you wish for will come true. The servants which summoned into the world classified into 7 classess : Saber, Archer, Caster, Assassin, Rider, Berserker, Lancer.
This anime is focusing on Archer’s story. Wanna know why? Just watch. LOL. I’m not gonna spoil it any longer because it won’t be fun.
To be honestly, this post isn’t supposed to be an anime review because i simply want to quote Archer’s quotes in this anime.
I am the bone of my sword.
Steel is my body, fire is my blood.
I have created thousand of blades.
Unknown to death, nor known to life.
Have withstood the pain creating so many weapons.
Yet, those hands will never hold anything.
So as i pray, unlimited blade works.
For those who wants to watch, you can stream it every Sunday. I don’t know the exact time though. I totally recommend it for those who loves action and supernatural genre.
