Rin, Archer, Shirou, and now Saber. Seems like everyone wants to be tsundere now.
Tsundere is a miracle of the universe and will heal Shirou's PTSD.
Loving this look, the stare of someone who is insane
>Saber still steals the spotligt.
>Arthur is one of the Nine Worthies, one of the "three good Christians." His life was used as an example for how a knight and a king was supposed to act. He is the archetypal knight.
>Has been tainted by sin
I don't think so.
They even made a 12 episode fan anime.
Amazing, isn't it?
It did feel a bit odd, but she's had a thing for him for a little while. And well, her servant did try and kill the one she's in an alliance with. So that might've sped things up a bit.
Is it just me or is Saber not really showing any kind of drive to fight the war?
Heck, in Fate when Shinji told Shirou that Caster was based out of Ryudou, Saber basically ran off on her own in the dead of the night against orders to go attack the temple, and ended up fighting Assassin.
Now, she's just sort of sitting around at home while Shirou goes to school. They don't even go out at night searching for Servants to kill.
Not really, this is the day when she throws a eraser at him with enough force to make him flip around on his chair.
Or if Shirou goes out to meet her she acts like this.
It's too late for her, she's been caught by Shirou's gravity field and has passed the event horizon already.
Disappointing. Our standard first half of pissing around followed by beating up a bunch of bad CGI skeletons, and let me tell you, recessing the head of a skeleton is not the creepy horror they seem to think it is. Then when it finally comes down to Rider vs Saber ‘for real,’ B immediately stabs A, who was actually C, because B was already dead and apparently just hanging out, slightly embedded in a wall, waiting for X and Y to stop by so she can untwist a broken neck before dissolving into sparklies gravel. How utterly and completely anticlimactic across the board.
So if you’re keeping score at home, it was around seventeen minutes of sitting on their asses and chatting, a third of which was spent explaining that the giant eye in the air shooting lightning around the school was evil (not for the lightning, mind), three minutes of hitting skeletons with brooms, and the remaining time spent on dreams of having an arm made out of swords. God help us when it comes to the dolphin metaphors for sex.
That's like three days later anon. But have the RN cg.
Why did Rin have to use another Command Seal to order Archer not to attack Shirou? Her 'absolute obedience' order is still in effect, she could have just given an ordinary order and Archer would be hampered enough that Saber could easily deal with any attempts to kill Shirou.
>these cuties will never be animated in my lifetime
why even live
>Archer would be hampered enough that Saber could easily deal with any attempts to kill Shirou.
Unless Saber isn't with Shirou, which she wasn't when Archer tried to kill him in the first place. Of course he wouldn't try it when Saber's around.
>Isn't that the guy who translates tons of VNs?
He translated Battle Moon Wars, Kamidori, Duel Savior, Galaxy Angel, Daibanchou.
>How the fuck does he make a comment like this then?
If you've read any of his blog posts, the whole point is for him to make as many criticisms as he can, some of which border on the edge of illogicality.
Why is insanity the best type of moe?
He's smiling gently while he looks at Rin and Saber and everyone around them having fun, then a brief flashback to the fire and the smile freezes on his face while his eyes stare into space. The next shot has a shadow obscuring his eyes while Rin goes all "emiya-kun doushitano"
you never know,
we might get an HA anime from UFO in another 10 years
>If you've read any of his blog posts, the whole point is for him to make as many criticisms as he can, some of which border on the edge of illogicality.
He actually praises some anime once in a while, and not always the expected stuff.
There's a bunch of comedy shows of which he loved the first episodes, but if the second ep has even an ounce less energy and repeats even just one joke he's gonna hate it.
The skeletons and their weapons looked pretty weird, are they cel shaded or did they rotoscope 3D models or something?
The only thing I remember him praising is the samba dance from the start of episode 1 of DAL.
Because the heroines are crazy and normal people would be running within the first five minutes.
What does Saber do all day at home? What was she in the middle of doing when Shirou unceremoniously teleported her into school?
>The only thing I remember him praising is the samba dance from the start of episode 1 of DAL.
Here's his opinion of Seitokai Yakuindomo's first episode.
He often has that kind of comment on comedy shows:
>It was a pretty good first episode, relatively standard humor mostly centered around parody, so your mileage may vary, but fun.
He hates exposition and likes stuff that moves around with little downtime too, like Horizon.
Broadcast regulations in Japan mean that very bright flashing scenes are not permitted. IIRC they've been in place since Electric Soldier Porygon.
This season Ore Twintail's OP has a darkness filter over one of the scenes too.
It's extremely common for TV airings of any anime with lots of bright lights, be they explosions or laser beams or whatever, to put a dark filter over those scenes. To prevent epileptic seizures or some shit.
I blame Porygon.
well then we might get another season of Carnival Phantasm that they could add them to
something to the effect of they show up, bully Rider a bit, then establish a cult where all the men folk worship them and Rider, Sakura, Rin, Saber, and Caster have to figure out how to stop them
>The better question is why the fuck was there a a dark filter on top of that scene?
Actually, that's complete bullcrap and there's no law that enforces those filters, it's just to fuck up the image and force people to buy the non-filtered BDs.
Tsubame Gaeshi looked pretty fucking cool.
Anyone got webm's?
Not very, more an autistic punk picking fights with anybody who was doing anything bad.
"BAD THINGS ARE BAD!"
Thanks, have a loli elf riding an orc.
Did Nasu ever give it a better explanation than "practice nigga"?
Because its easier to work with.
Its the same reason why Chaotic Neutral is the superior DnD alignment.
The good part is that Nasu is at the least not a completely shitty writer, so it adds weight.
If it was possible to get good at fencing just by watching someone fencing then fencing instructors everywhere would be out of a job.
In her defense she was not the only one this time
I paused on that scene where Rider's ass slides toward the screen and used my EX rank imaginative ability to recreate the smell, taste, feeling and visual sensations one would have by lifting her skirt and thrusting their face between her ass cheeks, it took me all of five seconds to trace this situation and I can tell you now - the object I ended up projecting was harder than anything you have ever seen
>Assassin vs Saber was pretty good.
Not really, too much sparkly lights (AGAIN) and choreography sucks dicks.
I want F/Z and F/Z-Lancer back, F/SN is really a disappointment and borefest.
>implying she doesn't stalk her husbando to school everyday
>Its the same reason why Chaotic Neutral is the superior DnD alignment.
Literally the worst D&D alignment, at least when used to justify acting like a complete murderous retard.
>I'm going to kill this NPC because lol Chaotic Neutral.
>I'm going to steal the party's stuff and abscond into the night, because lol Chaotic Neutral.
>I'm going to betray the party and join up with these random encounter bandits, because lol Chaotic Neutral.
>I'm going to roll to decide literally every action I take, because lol Chaotic Neutral
>I'm going to act like a 12-year-old on Gaia, because lol Chaotic Neutral.
Pic tangentially related.
Unlimited CGI Works
Like holy fucking shit, why does it looks so ugly and why do they use it so much? Even the 2006 Deen version looks better.
>why is Rin such a retard?
>Don't kid youself
I'm not. Aside from far away QUALITY shots, it looks better. It's actually hand drawn and isn't filled to the brim with CGI skelingtons and people everywhere.
Plus it sounded way better.
Too bad it's only for jokes sake. I would play the shit out of it
>That Saber summoning scene in the hallway
10/10, so beautiful it almost made me a Saberfag.
Shirou freaked me out this episode,His face looked really fucking creepy after he checked on Sakura and after that he was pretty aggressive in fighting the golems. I thought he was suppose to have no emotions but here he had that whole silent rage thing going on.
It's so good to see the Shirou we know and love
I can't wait for two week's time when we have another point of commonality with which to post ufotable/DEEN comparisons
Tohsaka stares at me for a while, and with a serious face…
"Emiya-kun. You're pretty calm. It's a bit unexpected."
"……? I'm not calm. My head got all boiled up too. We both lost our composure out of anger."
"But you figured out everyone's condition. I couldn't do that."
"Oh, that? It's nothing much. I was only able to tell since I'm used to seeing dead bodies."
Was replaying Heaven's Feel when I noticed that Sakura has an earing in this scene.
I don't recall her ever having one before? I can't find any other images of her wearing one either.
Let's just hope ufotable properly conveys the unintuitive nature of Kuzuki's punching, rather than DEEN who just made him punch superfast.
There are good chaotic neutrals, just as there are bad lawful goods.
>I'm going to kill the rest of the party because they took the macguffin without asking the authorities
>I'm going to kill this random civilian in broad daylight because detect evil told me he deserves it
>I'm not going to take action against the BBEG until he clearly does something that can be legally persecuted
Maybe it'll look like this.
Hurting Sakura or Taiga is the worst shit you can do to Shirou, he loves them. You touch his fucking family and he'll kill the shit of you.
That's why Sakura's terrified of what Shirou would do if she's crippled or killed. She knows he's got this crazy protective reaction.
UBW TV confirmed for taking place in 2030.
You can't get more dense than this motherfucker.
You mean best end.
>you now realize Sunny Days is the only Good ending in the entire VN
I didn't zoom in or resize this, this is an actual frame from Fate/stay DEEN episode 18.
See, you can't even deny it's the only good ending.
>You will never get a handjob with Rin's delicate but strong hands.
>that second that looks like they're gonna suck face
Nasu Good Ends are invariably shit.
>Arc Good: Arc stays around just because despite her hunger presumably still being an issue
>Ciel Good: pointless shitty threesome that ruins the relationship development of the route
>Hisui Good: Kohaku becomes a retard, Shiki and Hisui forced to take care of her for the rest of their lives
>UBW Good: see Ciel Good
It's a matter of perspective.
Give me all your lunch money!
At least use the goddamn picture. Goddamn.
How can that idiot teacher kill Servants nonchalantly? And people say Shiki can't kill servants. It's just idiotic.
Shinji Rider is weak as fuck. Notice how she couldn't even kill Shirou before he gets a major power boost by copying Archer?
That idiot teacher is ridiculously strong + strengthened by Caster
He kills Servants through surprise and (magically enhanced) physical power. The matter of Shiki killing isn't the same as shooting a gun. Shiki irrevocably ends the existance of something when he kills.
tl;dr read Tsukihime
>And people say Shiki can't kill servants. It's just idiotic.
It is, Nasu already directly said Shiki Tohno can't even get close, but Ryougi can fight a servant defensively at least.
Teacher is far more trained than Shiki, his body isn't super human but his technique is beyond normal realms of perfection since he was trained like a Nanaya as a child to perfect one move. He had far more training than Shiki in that sense, and didn't forget all of his shit. However he only has that one move in truth.
Bruce Lee said it himself "I don't fear a man who has practiced ten-thousand kicks, I fear a man who has practiced the same kick ten-thousand times"
Also he's being buffed by the strongest magus in the war to become servant tier in terms of stats. Which is something Shiki of course lacks.
oh god DEEEEEEEN
Kuzuki has Caster buffs, and he also has more actual training, compared to Shiki who's running off instinct.
With a solid mage giving him buffs, Satsujinki-Shiki could probably take a Servant.
I don't remember the earring part at all, but I last read it like 2-3 years ago.
Makes me wonder if she ever wears earrings otherwise considering that she has a hole in her ear, or maybe Shinji just made one on the spot. In that case it looks surprisingly clean considering Shinji's personality.
>Especialy since it's basicaly killing the personality and creating a new one in the same body
That's what made it so sad. The person they all knew is dead, but someone who looks just like them is still around and they are obliged to look after her.
Hisui route had the most depressing endings.
that sounds fucking terrible.
That shit is something that would be impossible to adapt there are to many slice of life events that fill in backstory. It would have to either cut a ton of shit or be boring as fuck.
Kuzuki can beat Bazett or Prime Kotomine, first fight only though.
He's not to be underestimated as "Just normal human, whatevs". Guy was a super child assassin, killed his sensei in a duel when he decided he wanted to live, but wasn't sure what to do next. So he became a teacher.
>Dat pimpin tuxedo.
>Seibah lookin high as fuck with munchies.
>Gonna start eating them flowers.
Chaos isn't a fighter, he's just a defensive wall that rushes at you in different ways. Shiki admits that a true master martial arts user is probably more dangerous than Giant Akiha, since Shiki relies entirely on being skillful and fast, so meeting someone with the same shit but better means he'll lose. Shiki has an easier time with the big guys with no focus, or who think they're invincible, he has the hardest time with those people on his statue who can excel him in his fields.
Fate/another score -super remix tracks- It's the album with the servants standing on the blue surface that the vita HF OP is an homage to.
At least it's on that album.
Literally the opposite. Front is shit with zero definition while her back is delicious.
Wasn't that he has a one target he must kill. It was going to be his first and last mission since they command him to kill him self too after killing his target. He kill that guy but couldn't kill himself and became teacher after leaving everything.
It's because he thinks himself invincible that he becomes a prime target for Shiki. He excels at taking down those arrogant immortal types. Because they do not know fear or will not get serious until it's too late, and once they can understand the weight of what he can do they tend to freeze up.
Just like Diamund excels at taking down servants that rely solely on their NP.
Oh my god, that fucking ass on her. Jesus fucking Christ!
Does Rin speak with some kind of non-standard accent or style?
I mean, my moon is pretty bad but when she speaks it always sounds different to everyone else. Is that just me or is this a thing?
I don't know, Akiha was a strong contender. They couldn't even label her alternate end "good" and her true end is vague as fuck. I don't see how Shiki could've survived, so it all sounded like shallow optimism
You're gonna love what Caster looks like under the robes then
Remember: Shiki is a good dodger. He is good at not being hit, not surviving hits.
Also remember: when you dodge the snake fist, the snake fist automatically hits you.
Kuzuki is a complete counter to agility fighters like him.
I'm really happy that ufotable animated this beach for the HF OP.
Actually, you are right. Akiha simply wasn't allowed to be happy.
I just want my Tsukihime remake and Sacchin route.
He himself admitted that he was arrogant and did not get serious until it was far too late. I ain't getting into this shit to the point that we all know it will end up if this keeps going. Nero fucked up and made himself the prime sort of target that Shiki excels at taking down. Shiki cannot fight on par with even an average servant as well, so Nero's transformations did not reach that level. They are an imitation of beings since almost the dawn of man or other strange places, but how in depth that is was never explored. If he summoned a Dragon would it have divine mystery? Doubt it considering what we saw, so it comes off as just a physical imitation.
Even despite not reaching that level there's not many servants around that could ever beat Nero. One of the creators said Arturia could maybe Excalibur him away full, and Gilgamesh could do it by nature, but really not many.
Nero's main skill is being an absolute defensive wall, but because he's been invincible for so long he was the worst target for Shiki who had the worst ability for him.
>confirmed for never seeing a squatting womans ass
I felt cheated, it's like they were punishing me for going with incest route when they weren't even real siblings
It doesn't translate that well to anime because he usually acts dense as fuck and you can't read his inner monologue describing how he admires her. But it will get more obvious soon
If it makes you feel any better, Shiki is pretty much dead within 10 years of any route from Tsukihime.
I disagree. Shiki enjoys Arcueid's big boobs and Ciel's big ass.
Nrvnqsr is essentially just a spam master. He just throws beasts at people until they are dead and eaten, or transforms into one when that shit doesnt work. That just gives him a strength buff and nothing else.
Nrvnqsr has one of the best defences in the Nasuverse. It is something only Shiki with his MEoDP could do anything against outside Gilgamesh using Ea or the entirty of his vault in Nuking him.
Kuzuki isnt this. He is someone who has trained and mastered one of the most incredibly deceptive and devious martial arts around. He would utterly wreck Shiki, even without Caster's buffs. He'd probably also wreck Ryougi as well.
Not 100% certain but I think it is the day after they fight Kuzuki for the first time (day 10), you have an option whether you want to talk to Saber or Tohsaka, and the Tohsaka option leads to them talking about projection magic.
Really depends on which Shirou.
Shirou isnt fated to die after a certain set amount of time after the HGW. Shiki IS fated to die, no matter what route or reality he is in, after the events of Tsukihime.
In a sense, he was only ever 1/4 alive in the first place.
>just a lolicon
If you fuck a "really 400 years old" loli succubus dream familiar within a dream, does it still count?
Shiki is pretty indiscriminate when he comes to women, but he usually fucks (rapes) women within his age range.
Really nigga? Because bodyfat% doesn't affect how a body looks?
Archer was executed, though, and he gave himself up willingly.
I'm pretty sure he gets the life force SHIKI stole back after he kills him in every route except Kohaku's, because Akiha absorbed it along with everything else SHIKI there.
His impending doom has less to do with the life SHIKI stole and more to do with the Eyes.
Well, thanks for really proving yourself wrong by making that image.
>Because bodyfat% doesn't affect how a body looks?
Who cares what affects it? It doesn't look good and ruins her perfect back.
How much more of PTSD Shirou will we see before the series is over?
All of those girls are sticking their ass out to make it look bigger. Meanwhile Saber has a more petite figure and is thrusting her pelvis forward, yet is still showing an ample amount of ass.
>Entirety of his vault
You underestimate his vault a bit, all it would take is one anti-continent weapon.
Karna's Nuke was something around that level probably. There are probably at least a few hundred weapons in his vault that could solo him, that's how bullshit his vault is supposed to be. You don't even know half the insane shit in there, since it has all the insane shit.
90% of Gilgamesh's vault was able to get him past the defenses of a reality warping quantum observer, in doing something that was supposed to be impossible. It's not the same as beating the computer, but getting past the final firewall is a big feat.
You don't actually follow arthurian scholarship I take it.
The idea that Arthur was a female concealing her identity was not made up by Nasu.
From the original welsh myths, King Arthur was:
2. a young boy king
3. avoidant of siring an heir
4. neglectful of his wife, interpretable as a loveless marriage
>Official Nasu English name for her really is TOESAKA
You can just barely make out the line for the E
After Fate/hollow ataraxia, which has been more or less confirmed.
Though even then, they will probably milk Fate/Extra, /Apocryhpa and any other Fate derivative works before they get to Tsukihime.
But they realy question is, D.D.D. anime fucking when?
>You need to destroy an entire world at the same time to kill Nero.
Only in Kagetsu when Nero is a little girl, original Nero all you needed was the power to destroy an entire continent.
It's a "world" in the sense that it's a Reality Marble, but you don't need to be a planet-buster to destroy it. Ea handles it because it has type advantage over Reality Marbles, but continent-destroying force can destroy it as well.
Not in particular. It's just an idea that was generated partly because Arthur's legend deals so much about legitimacy and inheritance which normally follows through the male side of the family, so the idea that the true king decided by magic was female would just add another layer to that irony.
The first and last fact is that "King Arthur" is fictional, so whether they were male or female is literally irrelevant.
Pretty sure it was continent, CCC wouldn't fuck that up.
What are the current predictions on the season ending scene?
>Shiki IS fated to die, no matter what route or reality he is in, after the events of Tsukihime.
That's actually false.
Because we know Talk and Prologue exists, there is a time continuum that he does not die in.
No, it's just a restrictive amalgam that he used to bind Arcueid. Lair of the Beast King is what holds him together, and so long as that remains, 665 souls can revive so long as 1 lives.
>>Kotomine at his prime would still own him according to Nasu
Nasu never said that
He said "Kuzuki beats Bazett or Kotomine first battle, Prime Kotomine beats Bazett in all fields"
He never addressed Kuzuki vs Prime Kotomine, so it's assumed he still wins if its the first match.
No, I realized what's happening, you're just a Saberfag in some heavy denial. Here's a real ass by the way.
You mean which ending they are gonna go for?
It's obvious by now that they are going for True End, thank fuck.
C.C.C would literally fuck up anything, shit would put down a universal rewrite on Nero on every level of reality so that he never existed. It's the authority of every divine spirit and the Mooncell coming together to remake and unmake reality.
Even I am not that big of a Rinfag to find this acceptable. Or maybe I am to big of a Rinfag to do so.
Archer is a beacon for Shirou and the other way atound, too.
The more they interact with each other; the more fighthing skills Shirou drains from him; and the more memories and feelings Archer does as well.
So having not gotten to the UBW route yet, do they address the fight in the VN? i mean it seems that both archer and assassin are still alive so did they just give up and go their separate ways?
I mean the episode 12 cut-off point before going on break.
Nasu has already said that MEoDP can affect Servants and all other spiritual beings. The only people who were shitting on that page were those who said MEoDP doesn't work on Servants because they were beyond Earthly definitions. Apparently, they weren't, because Nasu said that MEoDP works just as well on Servants as they do on other spiritual beings.
Get with the times, old-timer. Read the Q&A for the T-M 10th year anniversary.
To kill Nero you do need the power to destroy a continent, not a world. The world comment is made in Kagetsu when Arc mentioned he was even stronger now, so that they could bullshit a plot-device where she couldn't kill him and needed Shiki. Even then that's a side story not written by Nasu.
Nero is not the strongest shit ever that can only be killed by Archetype Earth or something, a continent killing blow could kill him, or a number of conceptual attacks. There are blasting NP's that reach this level if all you have is power, but they'd have to be pretty up there in power.
I am totally for MEoDP being able to affect Servants. I've even argued for it in the past. But Shiki walking up to Berserker, from the front, and actually managing to cut him is complete bullshit.
So you're saying Shiki could easily beat Berserker while saying a string of one-liners?
Shiki Tohno is already stated to not even be close to that level. Best he could hope for is a surprise attack against a far far weaker servant, not swooshing past the strongest servant while going "Heh, nothing personnel kid"
Saying there's nothing wrong with that page while saying "Get with the times" isn't making it look like you know what you're talking about.
>Shiki has no chance of landing a hit on someone like Herakles
>Shiki lands a hit on a supreme being with 4x the stats of a Servant
>Shiki lands hits repeatedly on a DAA that is faster than a bullet
>Shiki is more talented than his father
>Shiki's father was moving faster than a hybrid that could fight against Servants equally
>Shiki's father almost killed said hybrid with one hit to the neck
>Shiki is able to dodge Ciel's attacks due to innate Nanaya senses
>Shiki is faster than the gaze of a hybrid and her ki attack
>or a number of conceptual attacks
>There are blasting NP's that reach this level
We haven't seen one so far outside of EA.
The closest would be Anti-Country
>so that they could bullshit a plot-device where she couldn't kill him
Arc can't kill Nero at all
>properly speaking even a serious Arcueid wouldn't be able to kill him.
so next episode will have shirtless Issei, right?
No way, it's just the right mixture of bounce with muscle underneath. You've already proven you don't know shit about squats and asses, so there's no reason for me to consider your opinion at all.
