Welcome to the Fifteenth #Anitwitwatches!
After a bit of a hiccup with RahXephon, it’s time to say goodbye and welcome in our newest watch: Fate/Stay Night (2006)! Not only am I super excited to finally be diving into a long-beloved franchise but with this watch comes some exciting news as well. This will be the FIRST of many Fate related content streams coming your way here at Jon Spencer Reviews. You may remember my Hunter x Hunter and JoJo retrospectives, and if you do, then you have an idea of what to expect. The biggest difference is that for the first installment I’ll be joined with friends as we discuss the series LIVE via Twitter. After that, I’ll continue the journey with other seasons, which may just have a surprise or two of their own along the way!
Below you’ll find information on what the watch is as well as the schedule for the fifteenth season of #anitwitwatches. Thank you to everybody who has participated in the past and all of you who will be joining for the first time with this series!
What is #Anitwitwatches?
This is a weekly community event meant to bring folks together to revisit old favorites and discover new shows. It’s meant to be something you can get as involved in as you want, there is no pressure to participate every week or every watch, but we’d love to have you to share in the experience and discuss the shows we are watching all the same!
I was inspired to do this after seeing the “rewatches” that people do over at Reddit in the r/anime sub. Since I interact with a lot of you guys on Twitter, I thought it would be the perfect place to do something similar! That said, even if you do not have a Twitter you can still join in by posting any content via WordPress, YouTube, or whatever suits your fancy. If you do, be sure to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can share your wonderful creations!
For everyone else, simply watch the episodes for the week based on the schedule below. Make sure to use the hashtag, #anitwitwatches when you do, and that’s it! Discuss with the other folks participating, create content, and generally just have a fun time!
This next show was chosen based on YOUR votes, so let’s get to the watch schedule.
Fate/Stay Night Schedule
We will only be taking our usual one week break for this one, so meet back on the 22nd of November to get started. Be sure to save the schedule so you can stay up to date with all the conversation.
If you have not done so, you can see where you can watch Fate/Stay Night for free, and legally, by using justwatch.com. Unfortunately, I cannot realistically check all regions but I aimed to make this as accessible as possible. That said, I won’t stop you from doing what you need to in order to participate. The more the merrier!
Here are the dates (all Mondays) and the episodes for each, please keep in mind that Monday’s are the main days for discussion but you basically have the whole week to watch (if you need to miss a week or whatever, that’s all good too):
That’ll make this watch 10 weeks long. Note some weeks are three episode weeks, so feel free to spread out your watching or do some early viewing and post your discussion notes later. I hope you’re excited to watch this one and I look forward to all the excellent discussion!
