One of my roomates bought this anime on DVD a few weeks ago simply because Best Buy now price matches to Amazon... they are going to lose lots of moola lol. Anyways, I've been a fan of all things in the Fate universe for a while now, but I never saw the anime in English... which now that I'm watching it I sure did not lose out by watching this one in Japanese. Though, I am a fan of Liam OBrien's sexy voice. Mmmm. Well, he does a pretty good job as Archer (the male pictured above) but the rest of the cast is pretty weak in the voice department. I particularly really dislike Sakura's vocie- it is way to child like. BUT if you are ok with watching in Japanese with subs, do it. Save your ears the trouble. The only reason I'm watching this one in English is because I've seen it before... and I like to have some anime playing while I work on my blog.
