Rabbit's Reviews Kyokutei Bakin
NA Release Date: 06/2024

Bakin is about as generic as an Arts Servant gets. Despite her busy kit, there’s really nothing about her to set her apart from other general Arts loopers, which is particularly problematic when she’s directly competing with Habetrot, who’s both fantastic and free. Bakin has bad cards, standard NP refund, low damage, and limited ramp, and is locked with a 30% battery. She doesn’t have short cooldowns or much bulk, and she doesn’t have any notable utility to speak of either. She feels much more like a gen-pool SSR, in that she’s perfectly serviceable but has nothing to make her stand out from others in her role. As a limited servant especially, though, she’s not impressive.

At least her art is nice.

Bakin is fine. She’s undertuned as an Arts Servant and has a number of annoyances within her kit, but ultimately she has loop specs—albeit limited ones—and decent steroids. The biggest mark against her is that she doesn’t really do anything meaningful that Habetrot doesn’t also do, and Habetrot does do a lot of things Bakin doesn’t… on top of being free. If you like Bakin and choose to invest in her, she’ll be passable, but she’s the weakest AoE Arts unit we’ve gotten in a long while.
