Why didn't Rin use magic to break into a museum and steal a famous katana to summon a Saber with?
>>
Western heroes are much cooler, who the fuck wants a tiny dick Jap as their Servant?
>>
>>114979985
Wasn't her mistaking the time is what brought this?
>>
>>114980047
>and then Arthur was a girl
>>
The only Japanese sword worth stealing is the Kusanagi no Tsurugi but the imperial family has it and you're not allowed to look at it.
>>
>>114979985
A servant having a katana doesn't mean it will be a Saber.
See Assassin.
>>
>>114980119
and that girl shits giant laser beams, Japanese heroes are shit save for Oda Nobunaga - who was a joke Servant

>Okita Souji
Worst Saber
>Benkei
Crappy Lancer
>Kojiro
not even a true Servant

Then you have Servants without further details like Amakusa Shirou (Ruler), Miyamoto Musashi (Saber) and Sakamoto Ryoma (Saber)
>>
Would Masamune be a Saber or is he just a creator not a wielder like EMIYA?
>>
>>114980080
No read the VN, shit even F/Z explains it.
>>
You can't summon Eastern heroes in the 526th grail war. The line goes somewhere west of India.
Kojiro is only a valid summon because he is a Wraith, he does not hail from ToH. Just like Bluebeard.
>>
>>114980260
Nigger what, they have tons of potential Servants.
The Dokuganryuu, Hatori Hanso, and others.
And considering Evil Spirits are allowed to be summoned after the 3rd war you could also get shit like Orochi and others.
>>
>>114980047
>>114980260
But Archer is actually a jap, a good servant and he also has a big penis.

Them being summonable or not due the line doesn't change the fact Japan WOULD have cool servants.
>>
>>114980431
>But Archer is actually a jap
No he is Irish, he is the blue man's descendant.
>>
>>114980365
Why are eastern heroes invalid?
>>
>>114980491
Because japan has enough anime with those in it.
>>
>>114980491
Not mysterious and exotic enough for the target audience.

True, if the plot demands it

Like during UBW

That's the other blue man keep watching.

>>114980491
They don't want to answer the summoning to a foreign object.

>>114980531
EMIYA is partially a part of the western culture sphere.
>>
>>114980531
EMIYA is a counter guardian. That's a whole different can of worms to think about.

I watched F/SN back when the first one came out years ago and didn't like it. Do I have to rewatch it and remember things to watch this or can I just start with zero or whatever?
>>
>>114980688
The far east is not the only region to which the Christian Holy Grail is a foreign object.
>>
>>114980491
Because the Holy Grail Ritual was created using western magic.

TYPE-MOON Ace 4
Nasu: In EXTRA's Grail War, Eastern heroes can be summoned as Servants. The ban is removed.
----Really?! Wasn't Assassin Sasaki Kojirou the only irregular existence...?
Nasu: The summoning system of Fate/stay night's Grail War was created in the world of Western magi, so it can only summon Western heroic spirits. But EXTRA's world itself is irregular, and the Grail War system is different from the previous ones, so Eastern heroic spirits are possible too.
>>
>>114981431
When the fuck do we get a translation of CCC?
>>
>>114979985
The catalyst works based on how closely tied it is with the hero. Getting the katana might get her someone that used it, doesnt mean that person will be a saber class.
Besides, I dont believe she had too much support magic to help her steal a relic and get away with it in the time that she had left.
>>
>>114981431
So, they just count the near East as Western as well? Sasuga Japan.
>>
>>114980431
He was westernized, duh!
>>
>>114981587
The middle/near east already have lots of contact with the western world since the time of the Greeks (For Example, The Centaurs were suppose to be based on the Steppe people, more contact with the Persian empire, especially after Alexander conquered it, and during the times of the Roman empire too, etc...)
>>
>>114980531
EMIYA isn't a hero, and his summoning was more powerful than normal catalyst rules.
>>
>>114980531
Nah mate he's a hero in several places around the earth. I.e. middle east
>>
>>114981730
Gilgamesh is older than those things, though.
Unless you want to say that western magic itself got influences from there, that could make sense.
>>
>>114981431
So using a eastern catalyst wouldn't work?
>>
>>114981891
It did, after all the Atlas Academy (part of the mage's association) was located in Egypt.

Arguable, powerlevel-wise he's in the bottom of the list.

he's an incredibly well-balanced and observant genius

If you are talking about the one wielding a katana he was summoned by caster and it`s not a real hero, the others assasins are just the samefagging

Is the red man weaker than the rest because he's an unknown hero or is he just a shit
>>
>>114982055
He can block Lancer`s Noble Phantasm and 1v1 Gilgamesh, he is so op they had to nerf him by giving a E rank in luck.
>>
>>114980080
Yes, don't listen to the trolls.
>>
>>114981730
What about China and South East Asia which had contact with the middle east?
>>
>>114982030
Can Shiki kill servants?
>>
Pretty damn sure Rin would never be able to summon Saber without a relic. Her relationship with Shirou is just too stronk.

also dat pendant
>>
>>114982395
Real heroes sold their afterlifes in exchange for superhuman powers. The red man is just a tryhard magus in this sense.
>>
>>114982595
Pretty sure red man would destroy most non-op heroes 1v1.

That was actually lost at sea they only have the mirror and the jewel

>Urobuchi: I was having too much trouble thinking of a Caster, so I asked if I could use a Chinese Xian or something. That's how I learned the "Western only" rule.

Keep in mind the typical Xian were immortals that was as close as you can to the gods.

>>114980491

Summoning japanese heroes to fight in the modern day was already done by a japanese novel series (Makai Tensho) and Nasu didn't want to be called a copycat.
Also, he didn't want anybody to have the "home team advantage".
>>
>>114982786
>hardly any contact

Both of their histories include them being subjugated by Western powers.

China was in contact with the Romans as early as the 2nd century.
>>
At the beginning, when Rin forges a contract with Archer, she calls Kotomine to enlist herself as a Master in the upcoming Grail War. Kirei asks for her to stop by, but she doesn't. Is this why Lancer attacked her in the school? Was Kirei so offended by Rin's attitude that he went his main man Lancer to take her out?
>>
>>114984680
That was only a few people, and they didn't establish much contact afterwards and just relied on the silk road. Unlike with middle east which the Romans pretty much controls.

Sir Lancelot [Servant]
Source: Fate/Zero material (2008-08-08), p.096
Fate/Zero Dictionary
The "Knight of the Lake", famed as the strongest of the Knights of the Round Table.
His illicit love affair with Queen Guinevere drove Camelot down the road to ruin, tarnishing his legacy in the legends of King Arthur.
As he often fell into madness due to troubles involving Guinevere, he has a particular compatibility with the Berserker class. In a lot of ways, he's just a guy who pushed himself too hard.
He was born with numerous abilities and aptitudes that take him beyond the realm of "high-spec" right into "completely overpowered", and none of them were any help at all in solving his problems. But while I could sort of sympathize with him, at the same time I couldn't help but feel a little bit of black joy that so many terrible things happened to such a handsome and talented person. But then the girls in class just looked at me in disdain, like, "Eww, so jealous, gross!" while screaming in shrill voices
about how cool Lance-sama is, and… ahem. Sorry, I'm getting off track here.
Anyway, if he and King Arthur had just been able to have an all-out brawl to satisfaction on a sandy beach under the evening sun, so many tragedies might have been avoided. Well, there's no guarantee, of course, but the fact remains that whatever else happened that was the one thing that Lancelot's nature never let him do. He even tried going insane to change that part about himself, but just ended up causing the way-too-serious Artoria to misunderstand a lot of things instead. Really, it makes me wonder if his origin is "being a nuisance" or something.
>>
>>114985101
it's good or bad?
>>
>>114981431
Why is there a distinction between "western" and "eastern" magic? Isn't magic magic? At least, the magic Rin uses doesn't seem incompatible or too different from other magi.
>>
>>114981340
This isn't a sequel so you dont have to rewatch.
>>
>>114981340
Just start with Zero so you can watch this, it's being adapted with Zero viewers in mind.
>>
>>114980207
Yea, you're just wrong
>>
>>114979985

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Rin mostly oblivious to the importance of a summoning catalyst to begin with? I don't quite remember if this was addressed in the VN, but it would seem a lot like her, what with the whole intelligent-but-lazy archetype thing going on for her.

Tokiomi never really taught her anything beyond the very basics of Tohsaka mana manipulation voo doo thingamajigs and, well, I'm not sure if Kotomine had any reason to actually properly teach Rin all the necessities of the grail war.
>>
>>114987259
They're different and that's why she speaks German when casting, I would assume.
>>
>>114980131

There most be something that belonged or has some connection with Musashi in Japan somewhere. With him you are pretty much assure victory.
>>
>>114988489
>Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Rin mostly oblivious to the importance of a summoning catalyst to begin with?
She knew about the importance, but she didn't have a catalyst or any way to acquire one, so she just gambled that if she pumped lots of power into the process she would draw a Saber.
>>
Because she thought she'd summon her anyways.

George Bush is best Saber.
>>
>>114982595
No, real heroes are records gathered because of their deeds in life or through legends spread about them. What you're talking about are people like the red man and Seeeibah. Although the red man is a different case from Seeeeibah, they both made contracts and sold their afterlife. People like Heracles and Gilgamesh are true heroes.
>>
>>114982629
The red man destroyed an OP hero five times in Fate. It's just that he has a history of faggotry.
>>
>>114982984
>Born before the 19th century
>>
>>114988489
If she could identify the contents of Tokiomi's chest as catalysts, she knew enough about their importance. At the point of her summoning Archer there were two days to the deadline and she couldn't possibly obtain a powerful enough artifact on her own which would also satisfy her ego. She probably believed that she could do it without any catalysts since Archer and Saber were the only two cards left. She probably could have summoned a Saber too if she hadn't used the pendant.

Would Shirou get EMIYA then? I'd imagine his connection to EMIYA is stronger than to Arturia, plus I don't think Arturia fits into Archer class.
>>
Why didn't Rin use magic to conjure up a time machine, and kidnap King Arthur for herself?
>>
>>114992352
EMIYA would probably not have been summoned at all. Shirou had Avalon inside him so there is no way he would summon anyone but Seeeibah. He'd just be killed like a bitch or be saved by Rin.

Houjutsu

法術 - Houjutsu
Japanese spell-casting based around Shinto and Buddhism.

Withcraft

呪術 - Jujutsu
Shamanism, curses, etc. Not thought of as academia within the Association.

Formalcraft

元素変換 - Genso henkan
Elemental conversion.

Summoning

召喚術 - Shoukanjutsu
Summoning. Not too many details on it. Some sort of ambiguous difference between it and spiritual evocation (koureijutsu).

Spiritual evocation

降霊術 - Koureijutsu
The art of conjuring a spirit. Merem's Demonition, etc. The department for this subject in the Clock Tower is called Eulyphis.

Spiritual invocation

霊媒術 - Reibaijutsu
The art of working via spiritual mediation. Spiritual surgery, spiritual possession, etc. A department in the Clock Tower exists for this subject.

Minerology

鉱石学 - Kousekigaku
The studying of minerals. The Tohsaka jewel arts would fall under this category. The Clock Tower has a department dedicated to this subject, in which Rin is enrolled in.

Alchemy

錬金術 - Renkinjutsu
Academia with the common theme of studying the flow of matter.
Most alchemy delves in the conversion of matter. However, Atlas is researching the conversion of phenomena.

Kabbalah

カバラ
One of the big European systems.
Not mentioned that often, only once in Tsukihime itself. Arc has already developed resistence to this.
One of the ancient methods, the Notarikon (short hand based on initial or ending letters of words used for sentence construction), is used by Aoko.
Gematria (which is probably the basis for Roa's numerology) and Temurah are the other major ancient methods.
>>
>>114992468
But Shirou has EMIYA's goddamn body, I'd imagine that being a pretty powerful catalyst.

Can Arturia even be summoned into Archer class?

how come NO ONE notices all that property damage in the school grounds after the skirmish between Archer and Lancer?

>>
>>114992740
Because the movie was fucking shit.
>>
>>114992579
EMIYA's hostility towards Shirou and the sheer power of Avalon would ensure that such faggotry would not occur.
>>114992649
Who knows? Arthur's legends speak of at least three swords and one spear but I've never heard of him shooting anything.

The prologue is the prologue to the entire game, it's the very first thing you see when you start up F/SN's VN for the first time.

You don't see it again unless you specifically want to replay it through the extra's menu.

It's just an intro to the story.

UBW doesn't start until the 3rd night of the actual story, which is the point of divergence for all 3 routes. That's where your decisions over the first 3 days come to a head and put you on one of the 3 routes.

>>114993173
But taking the siege perilous (assuming they can find it) would summon Galahad or Percival.
Anyway
How do you feel for being written out of the holy grail quest by the French and replaced with their created Gary Stu Galahad because they thought your background and nature is not Christian enough?
>>
>>114992579
Counter guardians generally can't be summoned for grail wars. EMIYA was summoned due to a catalyst that HE had. Namely the heart pendant he was revived with.
>>
>>114993261
I always wonder what kind of servant they had on mind instead of Avenger
they expected something to have EX ranks on everything?
>>
>>114993343
Pretty sure it was also due to the grail being corrupted.

>>114993565
Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure the Einzbern grail doesn't really allow for divinities to be summoned. Demigods is as much as it will allow.

The Einzberns were trying to cheat their own system by summoning a human incarnation of Angra Mainyu (or so they thought) but it wasn't what it was cracked up to be.
