Carnival Phantasm OAV (2011)

Carnival Phantasm

the anime was created based on Type Moon (タイプムーン) manga, to celebrate the company's 10th anniversary. it uses the characters from Tsukihime (2003) and Fate/Stay Night (2006), putting them in funny or absurd situations that otherwise wouldn't occur by any chance. sometimes running an errand so small yet it had the power to destroy the town for the reason they ran across their rivals on the way to the supermarket, etc.

the story had both teams meeting each other in a completely different world. there were a lot of jokes, some reached us and some didn't, but it was fun watching those familiar characters making a fool out of themselves. the installment wasn't exactly original, but there was a form of enjoyment that had us relate to the characters in a life so similar to ours, yet they managed to screw up every little thing, stumbling over their own feet. however, this anime should only be watched if one is familiar with the mentioned anime titles. otherwise, it might appeared to be too random to be appreciated.
