This year’s Valentine’s event brings with it our very first SSR Quick Archer. Sei Shonagon is a nifty Servant all-around, with some good utility and the potential for very high damage against the right enemies. As with most of the post-Skadi Quick SSRs, she’s not particularly notable at the very high end, but she’s entirely usable and can be pretty strong if you like her enough to invest in her.

Sei is in a similar place as Servants like Bradamante—she’s not a top-level servant for full-on Quick Blitz, but she has a lot of strong tools that make her an appealing pick for mid-range Quick setups. She’s going to lose out to Atalanta in general if you have the tools to get Atalanta looping, but at basically every other level of play she’s significantly better. Definitely not a must-pull, but entirely workable and likely a lot of fun if you do get her.
