* TakeThatUs: The third special opens with cheerful acknowledgement that Saber is a huge cash cow and overused, the ''Tsukihime'' remake is taking forever, and that Type-Moon never seems to get anything new done. There's also a bit where the neko characters complain about a visual novel being too difficult, this being a comedic spinoff crossing two different visual novels.
