Thoughts/Review

And so we get a couple of bits of sad, jacked up elements with Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia 16. But it is still an enjoyable episode.

Kingu, Enkidu, and Siduri 

The first sad but jacked up element was Siduri saving Kingu. I don’t know how Siduri managed to keep her mind when her body had been transformed into a Laḫmu. Nevertheless, it is jacked up that she was violated and changed in this way. And I was sad when she died.

Still, she does appear to have redeemed Kingu. Or perhaps it is better to say that Siduri is awakening the Enkidu part of Kingu.

Ushiwakamaru

The other sad and jacked up part of Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia 16 is the return of Ushiwakamaru as an altered version of herself. I knew this was coming and hadn’t been looking forward to it. I like Ushi-chan and didn’t want to see her corrupted.

However, her return wasn’t as melodramatic as I thought it would be. I figured Ritsuka would do some pleading and the like to try to turn Ushiwakamaru back. Instead, he showed some real leadership by having Mash, Ishtar, and Quetzalcoatl battle someone he admired and respected. But now you know why the story pushed Ushi-chan so hard early on. 😅

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

Let me wrap up my review of Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia 16 with some final thoughts.

  • When Ritsuka provided mana to Ishtar, I was really hoping we’d see her drop her Noble Phantasm. But alas, that was not to be.
  • I had thought Gilgamesh might get into the fray. But he didn’t. Initially, I thought he saved Kingu-Enkidu.
  • Tiamat doesn’t look nearly as sinister in the anime as she did in

Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia 16

In the end, Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia 16 was an enjoyable elements. However, it was not without its sad and jacked up elements.
