>destroying an overpowered mary sue like Saber with pure sword skill.
Is there a more based servant than Sasaki Kojiro?
He's so fucking irrelevant they didn't bother to let you know who killed him in Fate.
>develops a master sword technique
>to kill swallows
Pic related, look at this big bad motherfucker, you'd have to train for decades to kill one of these things if you didn't want to use a slingshot. Based Sasaki Kojiro.
>after seeing it once.
Too bad she didn't see it once.
Also, Tsubame Gaeshi is literally unavoidable, it doesn't matter if you "predict" it. It's like Gae Bolg except without fate-warping so even luck won't save you.
In the VN he only used the 2-strike variant which can be dodged if you're good enough, but in the anime he used the three strikes which is unavoidable.
She didn't dodge it. Her instinct showed her what would happen, so she blocked it.
For some reason Assassin's sword isn't sharp enough to cut her armor. That, or he wasn't serious, and he'll reveal it in their last showdown.
It is meant to be a one hit kill, each swing is a lethal attack, blocking it with her armor is bullshit and makes Assassin no where near as big of a threat as before. Ufotable simply fucked up again
>It is meant to be a one hit kill, each swing is a lethal attack
How can a regular sword be a one hit kill against a servant? Archer tanks fucking gate of babylon to shield shirou and doesn't die.
That scene was 10/10 voiceacting.
But saber had to open her mouth... I wonder if it could be fixed with some video cutting.
Interrupting her mid-sentence would be even more delicious.
Second magic makes the sword exist in 3 places at once but it doesn't make it any stronger.
You have to destroy the core to kill a servant and they're extremely tough, specially Saber.
Again, tsubame gaeshi is unavoidable but not a one hit kill because washing pole isn't a noble phantasm but a regular katana.
Tsubame Gaeshi was here. Every other ultimate sword techniques are for losers.
Li Shuwen fucked up Mooncell servants with a single punch. Li Shuwen > Kojirou.
How come when Assassin isn't an assassin, they get strangely good, even strong?
He's not going to cut Saber's head because of her bullshit instinct/prediction and he can't cut through her armor with a regular sword.
Tsubame gaeshi can probably one shot some servants but not Saber.
Yeah, it should. But it doesn't make the scene less hilarious.
Mind's Eye (Fake) rank A. Kojirou is perfectly equipped to deal with an invisible opponent, and Shuwen has no means of closing distance or defending from his tremendous sword.
I bet the story about the oar would grant him a Noble Phantasm of the same sort of nature as Lancelot's Knight of Honor, with a few twists of its own. Something like being able to grasp everyday objects and reclassifying them as a "sword", giving them durability and cutting ability worthy of legendary katana.
Or something like that.
It wouldn't be his only Noble Phantasm, it'd probably just supplement some pair of swords he actually utilized that he can't use without a condition being fulfilled. Typical Saber class sort of thing.
Asian swallows confirmed smarter than a shitty King.
I've only watched the first Fate anime that came out a bunch of years ago. Should I watch this, or is there something else I should watch first'
>In FSN universe Medusa did exist
>It's been explained that Heroic Spirits are beings that heroes whom belief has been gathered upon become after death, but heroes of myths and legends can be born by the gathering of belief even if they didn't exist. Also, there are those who those who make a contract of some sort with the world when they were alive and as compensation become Heroic Spirits after death. In the Fifth War, Hasan Sabaha was a hero that actually existed, and Herakles and Medusa are ones of legends
They're the best routes of Turkeyhandle.
Ok, if that's true, how do you get the actual relics from those Servants used as summoning catalysts?
Are we at the "God (Akashaic Record) also went and put the dinosaur bones in the rocks to lol you" stage?
>Something like being able to grasp everyday objects and reclassifying them as a "sword"
So what would happen if he comes across something like this?
You're wrong, only in the fate route he uses the 2 strike version for some reason. In ubw he uses the 3 strike version and we get a paragraph about why he developed the technique, as well as the explanation that a flaw in the weapon due to them exchanging blows
Additionally, Medusa's own recollection of her tale diverges wildly from accepted popular versions of her myth, which would be impossible if she was born entirely from gathering of belief.
If everyone believes you're a turbobitch who deserved to be beheaded by Perseus you're not going to incarnate into a sympathetic waifu figure.
But they are.
The word autistic is an old word, some may call archaic. It was originally a phrase of two words. Au-Tastic.
Au [ohw] comes from the Greek word for pain.
Tastic [tah-stick] from the Greek word for man.
The term was thought to have been originally coined during the Roman invasion of Athens in 138BC to refer to the Roman general Sulla who nearly destroyed the whole of Greece. They called him "The man who brings murder." Autotasticusius. Later it was shortened to Autastic.
Although the meaning of the use of the word had been lost over the years, it was again popularized by Benjamin Franklin in the second draft of the Declaration of Independence in the line most famously quoted "We hereby declare independence from the Empire of Britain and its King of Autists"
Swords are dangerous, so don't be autistic with them.
No such thing in Tsukihime
Why he is such bullshit? Not even a legendary hero. Just some useless dude who tried to kill a bird his entire life because he literally got nothing else to do. Somehow because of this he is break rules of time and space. This is fucking beyond any other ridiculous staff from Nasu. Imagine if this guy would live now. She would be shitposter on on 4chan who shitpost that much that he can now shitpost 3 post at once and them all will be with trips. What the fuck Nasu? This broke all immersion for me.
But his sword did cut through her armor twice during the fight, first when she tried to grab his blade, it cut her through her gauntlet, and the that single Tsubame Gaeshi cut that landed penetrated her armor as well, but it promptly regenerated due to it being magical.
So Fake Assassin's blade is sharp enough to cut through Saber armor, but with skillful use she can use it to soften the attacks and avoid critical wounds.
Assassin is a word rooted in the old-english word for donkey. "As" Thought to date back to the formation of early England, it is also used colloquially to mean bottom.
Ass ass in is thought to have been used by the homosexual community as far back as 360 AD to mean "Ravage my anus you viking barbarian scoundrel!" Of course, much is left open to interpretation as Vikings were not known to be seen in night clubs until the late 1400s.
