Back at the Emiya residence, Rin is exhausted from the day’s fun. Shirou brings out barley tea and then prepares a light meal of chilled ochazuke. Rin and Saber go out to the engawa to enjoy the evening breeze, so Shirou brings their food out to them. Rin feels better, but wants Shirou to give her a massage to fully recover. He agrees.

Water Park Fun

I have to say that I loved seeing how excited Saber got over the water slide she and Rin went down. I think that’s partly why I’ve loved the Altria character in the Fate franchise.

The other fun part of Altria (Saber) is how she is when it comes to a fight. And with Archer and Lancer showing up in Today’s Menu for Emiya Family 07 and challenging her, she was not going to back down.

The only disappointment was that they didn’t perfectly match Altria’s Archer bikini (it has blue trim). Further, I would have loved it if she would have pulled a water gun on Rin since her Archer form uses one. But alas, ’twas not to be. That said, this is only a very minor disappointment over a lost joke.

Lancer Returns With Archer

The comedy elements of Today’s Menu for Emiya Family 07 came from Lancer and Archer showing up. The fact that the two of them teamed up and took it so seriously was funny enough. But having Archer constantly try to bean Shirou with the volleyball, fired at incredible speed was absolutely hilarious.

I don’t know why ufotable had Archer hide his face. That didn’t make sense to me. That aside, it was somewhat amusing that Rin didn’t act as if Archer were her Servant. If this is a “what if” post-Holy Grail War world, maybe Archer just came back for the fun since Rin basically lives at Shirou’s house.

ufotable Rocks!

The animation studio ufotable did an amazing job with Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works. And though Today’s Menu for Emiya Family 07 is a different kind of series, the volleyball battle showed why ufotable are so good when it comes to animating battle sequences. And that just made the episode all that much more fun.

I was kinda hoping that Rider would replace Shirou to team up with Saber. I think that the volleyball battle could have been even more amazing had that happened.

    Please don’t call her ‘Altria’ unless you’re talking about Grand Order. In pretty much every other release of the franchise (like the anime and Extella) she’s been named Artoria or Arturia, which is far more phonetically and linguistically accurate. Even the NA translators of GO wanted to call her Artoria, but for some ridiculous reason they were overruled by people who obviously are just awful with foreign languages.

    And most of the fandom hates the ‘Altria’ name. I know I do…

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      She should be Artoria, but alas, TYPE-MOON said, “Its Altria” and that’s the official English spelling. 😅

      I don’t like it either. But my rage about it died a long while back, so I just have gone with it since it is deemed official. It is kind of amazing what we put up with in this franchise, especially in FGO. 😅

      • OverMaster says:

        Again, it’s only the official spelling in GO. One really doesn’t have to use it anywhere else, and what, do you work for Type-Moon anyway? You don’t have to use it if you don’t want to.
