Just wrapped up Hollow Ataraxia. What a good fucking video game, Baz was awesome. Shame Iron Galaxy nerfed her so much.
Also Type Moon general I guess.
I've had this picture for years and never knew what he was holding until I opened my Baz/Caren/Angra folder to post this thread ;_;
More Bazett soon, fellow patrician
One time a moon reader told me that Kirei charmed Baz and I thought he was just kidding/meant they were friends. It's kind of weird that she actually fell for him.
>It's the last puzzle piece.
I've just remembered the ending where Bazzett and Avenger part in 3 2 1
That whole finale is really well done and actually might be my favorite Nasu moment outside of Punch Out (because how can you top Punch Out). It's just super cool that the final "battle" is just two friends talking (also that the male and female main characters actually are just friends for ounce).
a shame most people won't take it seriously due to it being a fandisk heavy on fanservice
It wasn't that he charmed her, but she felt that if she could have someone like him love her, that would be some sort of accomplishment, it's more a desire that stems from wanting to reaffirm her self-worth, sincwe all know what little self-esteem she has
>a shame most people won't take it seriously due to it being a fandisk heavy on fanservice
A lot of those fanservice scenes were boring/juvenile to me when I was reading them, I especially tended to hate the pool stuff, but
Angra flashing back through themwas pretty effective.
Also I forgot how FUCKED Nasu's stuff can be, Caster, Rider, and ESPECIALLY Avenger's flashbacks were some dark shit. Lancer's was pretty much just the straight myth though.
Kuzuki's wasn't a servant flashback obviously, but it was pretty much Red Demon God 2.0, which was cool I guess.
I like the fanservice. They didn't really have much of a choice since all the characters were already developed fully. I think they only work for most people if you are a fan of Nasu's humor. Otherwise they are understandably boring as fuck.
because all she knows is work, punching and potatoes
Some of it is fun, I laughed my ass off at TAIGA DOJO: THE MOVIE because how the fuck do you see that coming, and stalking Kuzuki and Taiga with Caster and Lancer was also funny.
The stuff I rolled my eyes at is the constant boobchat and infantilizing Saber (oh no she can't swim how moe blah blah blah). Less of that, more forcing the Servants to be in a school play.
>Also Type Moon general I guess.
No it won't be, it'll be a Fate thread and you know it.
It was always cool when the game managed to surprise me despite how much of it is known due to later works/ancient comedy doujins. Like, I never thought about
why you always see Bazette with two arms even though I knew Kirei stole her seals.
Well all the present material is pretty much just Fate. Until Mahoyo is translated (HAHAHAHAHA) we're stuck with that.
Good news is I have it on good authority that Fire Girl vol 1 is almost done, so hey, Meteor!
doesn't have to be
Shiki redesign when?
It's not fair that best girl-chan isn't in the more popular series!
I also just finished Ataraxia last night. Good stuff. My save file only says 92% on it though I did all the scenes in the main game. Does the "Eclipse" stuff count towards the completion percentage too or is it the minigames?
That I agree with, especially Saber. I really think they didn't know what to do with her so they went with the moe route. I only wonder which was written by Nasu and what by other writers.
I liked making her a foodie, that's decently funny at least.
Yes it counts. Also: after beating the main game, a weird scene unlocks in Chateau Emiya with all the girls at night, also remember to check out the school on the morning of the first day because that's a different map. Lots of people miss the Rin event there which unlocks first her date and then her Eclipse event. Once you've done everything else you unlock one final scene.
>tfw only the Hanafuda prevents me from getting 100%
fuck your traditional japanese card game, I just want 100%
What? I have 100% and I've never clicked Hanafuda even once. Unless you mean the Hanafuda story events in which case don't worry, those autoplay it the one time the game itself shows up.
you, the reader, are Angra Manyu. You are self-inserting as Shirou, repeating those four ordinary days, but eventually you get tired of seeing the same thing over and over again and proceed to the finale.
Well, maybe self insert is the wrong word. It's more accurate to say that you're viewing them through Shirou's eyes. You're doing the same thing Avenger did: "Oh, this go around I'll go to the pool with Saber, then take Rider on a date." Repeat until you're bored with it.
It's not a dream. All the actors are really there, they just don't retain their memories and state because of the time loop. That's why Karen said they'll all experience Deja Vu afterward, because they're all taking part in the play. The only ones who can retain their memories properly are Karen and Baz because of their connection to Angra.
I think it's pretty obvious. Actually the first time I saw the character art I thought it was supposed to be from one of FSN's bad ends.
KT is worse, just as Tsukihime is generally worse, because they are earlier works. KT's biggest problem is that the engine means you're navigating entirely via text menus, you need a walkthrough to unlock everything in that insane game.
There's still cool parts though, especially in the sidestories.
I never noticed it before even though I was spoiled on Angra's role as Shirou, I'd only ever seen fanart of him and that's always with his headband. But when you see the actual sprite yeah it's IMMEDIATELY obvious (hence why he'd a shadow most of the game), especially without the headband when he's got Shirou's hair.
i still don't understand how Sakura got so good with her powers Why is her arm the only part of her that has that sash instead of her having that shadow dress she had in heaven's feel? Something about limiters so she won't blacken?
No, just Caren. Eclipse is in the real world, only the main game is the loop. That's why the epilogue is in Eclipse and why the Track and Field girls don't recognize the Servants in their Eclipse story.
I'm about 50% through,having a blast.
By the way who's this master they're talking about ? Uryuu ? I was under the impression that being target of headhunting isn't exactly heavy penalty.
I love Tsukihime but that game mostly does not hold up that well. That's not a bad thing, it means Nasu is a writer who improves. I look forward to that remake coming out at some point.
Also if the true timeline, Melty Blood, follows Satsuki Normal, what does Hollow follow? Ayako Normal?
Hollow follows everything and/or nothing
Technically, Caren doesn't remember it at all. It's the one and only regret that Avenger had at the end.
His meeting and scenes with the others will remain as fiction/deja vu in the minds of others but his interactions with Caren will completely vanish into nothingness because in the correct timeline, he/Shirou/Avenger never met her.
And yeah before you point out, the last Bazett Eclipse is non-canon by Nasu. Er more like pseudo-non-canon in the sense that Bazett did move in to Emiya residence but that scene itself was fake as Rider and Saber still existed etc etc.
The same thing happened to me. The scene you're missing is most likely the "not continuing main story" scene. Like those moments where you get a chance to continue the main story by entering or not entering a house, or meeting or not meeting Caren at Ryuudou Temple. If you don't choose the "not" option, then you continue with the main story and miss a simple scene of Shirou going "Oh, I guess I don't actually feel like going over there right now."
Glad to see the gooks keep up good traditions.
Everything is fine, what do you talking about?
This is pretty much Saber's personality in HA isn't it?
It's pretty hard to write Saber in a situation like HA.
A huge part of her character is how she single-mindedly pursued an objective to the detriment of all else, which she did in the HGW but can't do in HA
So yes, her character is pretty flat in HA.
Pic unrelated, it's a better Saber.
Isn't that faggot the reason why Saber died in that battle in the first place?
She's just upset her game will never be remade.Like Asagi always being passed over in Nippon Ichi titles
I'm bored, dumping a doujin. A profusion of Akiha.
it's pretty disturbing how they've all been invaded by cats.
I think that's the loli murder Prototype Saber
Bazett has a white knight-savior woman complex. She fell for him in that sense and is unaware of her real feelings (dense). That's why she doesn't get she likes Lancer but everyone in the room does.
His last regret was that Caren wouldn't remember him while at least everyone else would sorta like they've experienced something before Caren would completely forget him. Besides he actually fucked Caren while Bazett remains a virgin.
But he gave up all of that for Bazett. I think he loved Bazett more. She just friendzoned him.
The constant symbolism of the flower = Bazett (she's the one surrounded by that mountain flower in the official art) and the woman he couldn't hate. I don't feel Bazett would have returned his feelings, though.
I think Bazette and Avenger loved each other more than anyone (Kotomine, Caren, Lancer, etc) but the love their shared wasn't romantic, at least not Bazette's (you can argue Avenger's feelings, he was very attracted at least).
It's not that long, although I'm not done yet
Or asking Shirou whether she's fat or not.
The SOL scenes with the main 3 girls are a fucking chore to read.
Best scenes are with Cu, KoGil, Shinji and Issei,
Lancer scenes are fantastic, especially the flower shop one with Ayako.
Also I hate that I've only had 1 or 2 conversations with archer and a plot conversation.
And Kuzuki's flashback, and the Illya scenes, and the (2?) scenes Archer has.
bazett is tied to the plot if you want any ridiculous antics from her you'll have to read the One Day doujin or watch that one episode of Carnival Phantasm. I don't know if they let her into antics in prisma iiya because I refuse to watch that shit.
Illya's were fine whenever she was in sister mode.
Like when she went full chaperone in Sakura and Shirou's date.
It's when she goes into "I want your dick" mode that I can't stand her. Like in the pool scene.
>especially the flower shop one with Ayako
I want Cu to woo me with flowers.
Kuzuki's flashback was 10/10.
One of the best in all the VN.
