Boring Side of a School Festival

School festival stories are a staple of anime and manga. Unfortunately, Today’s Menu for Emiya Family 10 made it an ultra boring affair. Its not very interesting to have Issei and company doing paperwork and dealing with issues concerning the stands clubs were setting up for the festival.

I do appreciate that the series brings in minor characters. Ayako has had more of a presence than Kaede, Kane, or Yukika. I didn’t remember that trio, but they are legit in the Fate/stay night universe.

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

In the end, Today’s Menu for Emiya Family 10 was the weakest episode of the series to date. Even Lancer’s cameo couldn’t save things. Oh well…can’t win them all.
