Reminder that tomorrow's episode is a hour long and most likely will be the best episode of the first cour.
It most likely is going to end at Archer's betrayal.
It all depends on how long the date is going to be. If they decide to make it short for the tv broadcast and save it for the DVD/BD then we might get to that point, otherwise it will end at the rooftop.
Ufotable tweeted out a pic a few weeks ago in a jacket by himself saying this was form the final episode.
This only happens either when Rin tells him to fuck off or on his way to the church.
I've seen the pic but I still don't want to get my hopes up. If they skip the opening we might get to see Shirou reach the church, but their still a couple of scenes to go through before we get to the betrayal.
It will be cutting it close but who knows
First half will be all date. There is no argument about that.
Second half will be everything afterwards. I would be happy if they ended with Rin having her last dream about Archer/Counter Guardians and their conversation before they head to the church.
There is no way they are going to spend the entire first half on the date. There is too little happening and anything important that is said or done can be compressed to less then fifteen minutes. They may make it twenty minutes on the BDs but for the broadcast they need to cut it down.
It is not all going to be date
There still needs to be Shirou seeing Rin in her pajamas, "meat and potatoes", and some other things. Would be nice if they had Shirou still go to the store and see Lyseritt.
>implying this man won't stomp other heroes and bring honor to the BAHSAH-CAR class in the future Holy Grail Wars
It has surpassed my expectation in many regards and I'm really looking forward to the next season. Even if they decide to skip all internal monologue during the archer/shirou fight I'm sure it will turn out good, probably not as good as in the VN, but good non the less. The one thing were I think the anime will be better then the VN is in the final battle against Gil. It was a little bit to short in the VN and compared to the fight against archer it felt like an anticlimax.
She's not sharing.
>thinking UBW Good wasn't a horribly-written, pandering ending
Actually UBW Good is very logical conclusion for story if you as Shirou will do certain choices during the game. Basically you can turn UBW into SaberxShirouxRin threesome route if you keep Shirou's interest on both girls for whole route.
They are pretty much guaranteed to end it with the betrayal. It'd be a great cliff hanger to get people hyped for the 2nd cour. They will want to end it on a high note, something like the walk to the church or Rin's final dream wouldn't cut it
Wasn't the UBW date really short? There is that scene in the cafe but that's all I remember. It shouldn't take longer than 5-10 minutes to get through all that even if they take their time.
It's the Fate date that takes forever with Saber drooling over plushies and what not
Can't spell harem without "HA", mates.
Why is her chin so sharp?
She could fucking cut someone with that shit.
He is in plenty of stuff. There was even one this season
>that pathetic attempt to justify shitty art
Sorry to hurt you so much, ufodrone, but you should try harder.
Pretty sure I watched x1000 times more anime than you, newfriend. Your pathetic attitude of a loser only proves that right.
I would have dropped this long ago if it wasn't for Ufotable animating this. Rin's thighs and hype/disappoint cycle for fights keeps me going.
But seriously this is the WAOTS for me because of how painful it is to watch.
I dunno about that. Maybe compared to the early 2000s, but plenty of recent character designs have pointy chins. Valvrave, for example. The shittiness of the show aside; I thought it had pretty good character designs overall.
I read the VN.
HF is best route, and Ilya is best girl.
>HF is best route
Lack of heroism detected.
Long-haired Arc is a miracle of the universe.
I tried to make an Arc thread for her birthday yesterday but nobody posted in it.
I hope you realize that there are people on /a/ stupid or ignorant enough to take that seriously, and they'll be coming to TM threads afterwards.
I'm looking forward to it. Though this image was way more effective at the start of season with huge influx of new people who have no clue. But really, no ammount of correct recommendations will fix those stupid/ignorant people. Just have to take advantage of them and watch from an ivory tower as they ask
>When is tsukihime anime going to get better? I'm 3 episodes in and this is boring
>End with Archer's betrayal
>With ufoshit's current pacing
How the fuck are they going to get through the deito, Saber getting rule breaker'd, Shirou waking up in Rin's house, chasing her down into the city, and her abandoning him, Kotomine getting wrecked, and Shirou heading to the church to witness Archer's betrayal?
Even with an hour, I doubt they'll get past rule breaker.
We're at least getting to the roof.
>Deito before first commercial 3~ minutes
>Saber rule breaker'd, 5~ minutes
>Fluff in between 15~ minutes
>Shirou head to church 5~ minute
>Archer betrayal 10~ minute
I can see it
>Saber rule breaker'd, 5~ minutes
>Shirou head to church 5~ minute
That's ridiculous, the Rule Breaker scene will take a great part of the episode, a lot of things happen, even if it's mostly dialogue.
And Shirou going to the church in that much time? You aren't really good at this. Not to mention that things actually happen before the date, and they can't skip those or the date would be really random.
Nah, opening is going to be Shirou waking up and finding the bread is missing from the fridge, and walking in on Rin sleeping while trying to confront her.
No way ufotable is going pass up the opportunity to animate Rin in her PJ's.
There is still time to spare. I don't really remember every detail that they have to adapt to be able to visualize it 100%.
I read other parts and thought that there was no way they'd be able to fit it all in an episode, but they did. They really condense the dialogue down to its most important bits.
They definitely want to end on a cliff hanger, so I can say that I won't be surprised to see some dialogue go for it to happen.
That's why in the promo shot right in the OP doesn't have a Shirou plush sitting right on Rin's lap, right?
I disagree. I loved the feeling of hopelessness of losing both servants back to back when reading the VN. Rin and Shirou sitting back to back with ever-present feeling playing was such a fantastic and memorable scene.
Starting S2 with Archer's betrayal feels a bit like wasted potential to me. Plus I don't see why they need a double episode just to cover what you are suggesting.
Why is Rider such a slut in F/UC
Period blood strong.

>Shirou fights Gilgamesh using Unlimited Blade Works.
>Rin saves Shinji from the Grail meat mountain and Saber destroys it.

>Archer tells Rin to not let Shirou end up like Archer.
>Rin and Saber live with Shirou in the Good End.
>Rin and Shirou go to London in the True End.
We'll have to see how it plays out I guess.
On one hand, I'd like for them to not rush content, however I also agree completely with >>118900595 in that it would be a very unfitting way to start up the second cour. It feels like the ending of a chapter, not the beginning.
He is also the glue that holds TM together. Make sure to thank your based god Takeuchi.
>implying Takeuchi isn't all that is good in the world
Just wanted to post that
oh, right. Caster doesn't mess around. Shirou walking into the scene inside foreshadowing the church dilemma or Archer displaying residency in Caster's team while focusing on Shirou and Rin's faces could be good too
>That church part of Archer etc didn't even happened
It didn't even happen yet, we're on the deito.
>It should be likely the half of UBW route in VN or a bit further
You're baiting at this point.
F/SN > F/Z?
Because this is the worst ending I've ever seen in anime (haven't seen much).
>tfw its really not bait im just ultra anime newfag
so this is what ultimate pain feels like
>No Fate anything in the winter
It's gonna be cold.
Kenji Kawai and Mahoyo guy are my favorites.
My main draw for f/sn was the music for the show in particular, I still listen to it every now and again.
two if you count the dragon in amagi.
Hearing based GEORGE drives any anime to at least 6/10.
that was gilgamesh's thing. it was confusing as balls why he had this techno beat in the actual vn.
i quite like his fate/zero theme too.
Except they are always seen together as a trio.
I think you mean
>Sakura and Shirou = couple
>Ilya = dead
>Sakura/Shirou/psycho loli bitch
>>Ilya = dead
>tfw I'll miss livestream tomorrow because of work
Fuck off wormslut fag. You're shitty waifu killed 100's of people.
UBW Good is LITERALLY the PLEBBEST, most NORMALFAG pandering BULLSHIT that Nasu has ever written, and if UFAGGOTable animates it over UBW True it'll show how they're all just a bunch of SaberCUCKS too afraid to not appease their SECONDARY NORMALFAG JOB HAVING fanbase. It shows the COMPLETE decline of Type SHIT into just another moneygrubbing KIKE corporation, and it would be a DISGRACE to TRUE FANS of the novel.
Every TRUE FAN needs to RALLY before the second cour to ensure UFAGGOTable gets their HEADS out of their ASSES and MAKE SURE we get the ending we DESERVE.
Fuck off psycho loli bitch fag. You're shitty waifu is not even human.
>thinks a screencap of LoGH will prove his oldfag credentials.
Your waifu is pretty much worms so you can't really say shit.
Prisma had way better fights than SN.
Ufotable should just rewrite the fights in UBW to make them better. Nothing compares to Ilya vs Saber Alter yet.
>>Sakura/Shirou/psycho loli bitch
Sakura's boring and can't keep her legs closed while Illya brought many tears to my eyes
I heard she's significantly better in Fate/Extra though
Yeah, you're retarded. Nice talking to you.
>tfw I love all the girls
Waifuwars are meaningless to me.
Oh, right. Wait...
They are both shit so who cares.
Tears of boredom? That happened to me too every time she was around except when Gilgamesh ripped her heart out.
The funny thing is, the same fights in the manga were a lot less exciting and impactful. I don't even think they were even that detailed. They were done so beautifully in the anime that I'm a bit disappointed as I read through the manga now about how they did it.
Prisma Illya was originally a parody though and with time and popularity was able to better itself, it's only natural their scenes be redone beautifully.
While none of the fights in F/SN are as flashy as that one, Prisma fights don't have much going on in the character department. Try and name ONE fight in Prisma that you invested more in it than Archer vs Shirou or Kirei vs Shirou. They're some of the most simplest fights, but they're the most memorable because of what the characters are fighting for.
But I like Sakura and Ilya but hate Rin and Saber.
I like Rin, saber and illya but hate sakura. Everyone has different opinions.
>Like all the girls
>Sakura is my waifu
You learn to ignore idiots.
You do know what that is, right?
Not entirely sure how you can hate Sakura but okay.
Not sure how you can hate rin and saber but okay.
The kaleidosticks give her the ability to use prana to perform pretty much any magecraft they can imagine, including shields.
Especially in zwei/drei, the plot becomes really interesting and I'm more into it more than I ever was Stay Night.
Here is your rhino.
Cry more bitch nigga.
How does it feel to have no taste?
I think she's boring and don't like her personality. Also (In my opinion) her route was the most boring. It took me like 2 weeks to finish it since I took so many breaks.
>he thinks rhino stuff is a joke
Based Ufotable showed her true face to us.
>finding Sakura boring
>not liking her yandere personality
>not liking HF
My god, you are shit taste incarnate.
Bro, it's my opinion. Don't need to get all feisty.
>hurr ur kid durr
Whatever. Have some more rhino from based Ufotable.
Yes but it's also pink in hue and a shield that is capable of blocking Saber's wind slashes. Whether they show it layered or not, there is more evidence pointing to it being Rho Aias than not. Illya also didn't have Ruby anywhere near her in that fight.
>No one ever posts rhino stuff from past episode 4
Your meme didn't even last a month.
>delivering her from serving All the World's Evils is edgy
More like a beautiful end for the best Saber.
Right now ufotable is doing a pretty decent job of animating the route compared to the Need for Speed adaptation. Fuck me though at least they're making it look like projecting archer's sword has at least some consequence on Shirou's body. DEEN made it look like he could pull it out of his ass anytime he wanted. I'm really scared they're going to fuck up the pacing for this episode though like other anons said.
I'm pretty much only watching this because of Ufotable. Some the scenes and dialogue are still really painful to watch but I'm holding out for better fights (like Lancer vs Archer, or the Berserker fight).
She killed Zouken and True Assassin.
Let's say best Artoria Saber.
Right, this and Gilgamesh also. She pretty much soloed every antagonist of the story.
Gilgamesh wasn't solo'd. He was taken unawares. Like always.
We haven't seen any awesome anime original scenes since Rin killing Skeledogs.. It's like Ufotable stopped caring.
I hope so. The anime originals are better than anything else that was adapted so far.
Anime original shit brought us the worst most godawful thing in the show that objectively completely ruined the adaptation.
The one scene that needs to be extended is Shirou vs Gil. It felt a bit too short when I reread it. If they do it right it will be the best moment in the anime. Shirou vs archer is a lost cause because it will not be able to top the VN without any of the internal monologues.
Thumbnail made it look like one of pic related.
EMIYA's fighting style is just awesome, in basically all adaptations.
He just has such a fun variety of cool looking abilities.
Most of the other Heroic Spirits are just kinda boring compared to him.
Prisma is under different rules. Illya in that is pretty much working on infinate prana. Not to mention the Card Spirits aren't nowhere as strong as their actual versions (hence why Bazett solo'd Lancer and Archer).
Same how Shirou can project Divine Constructs, for some reason.
I didn't watch last week's episode so am I looking at an hour and 30 minutes season finale? Great Scott!, It'll be like watching a movie. I''m excited. especially because I'll be going into it blind
Is evil Excalibah actually different from regular Excalibah in any meaningful sense
I'm pretty sure I heard elsewhere that if both clash, the light will always prevail as a rule. Other than that, there is virtually no difference. Excalibur is described as able to take on both forms, so it is the same in essence.
>implying Sparks Liner High wasn't better
He is easily the best character in FSN, maybe tied with Ilya.
>stays over at night
>invades Shirou's room
>whining about boredom
How do I get Shirou to give her the dicking she wants?
Fucking mongrels. UBW is shit writing incarnate.
>tfw no /ss/ doujins with Shota Shirou and Taiga
Gil went out worse in HF.
fucking this, teenage Taiga is such a qt it's unbelievable
I want this so bad holy shit
>implying he wouldn't just have aimed for his head then
>give Gil broken abilities which he deserves
>don't let him use them because "MUH STORY"
Fucking Nasu. That's why Urobuchi is much better than Nasu.
I wish people would get on translating more of the Extra content instead of the same five guys 'translating' UBW
Do you really think the actual Gilgamesh would be white?
He probably thinks Jesus was white too.
>Taiga staying over because Kerry is away
>needs to look after her little brother
>Shirou having nightmares of the Fire
>Shirou wakes up in the middle of the night unable to sleep
>Taiga finds him
>proceeds to help him through /ss/ to get his mind of it
>tfw we'll never get this
Shirou is the red nam
I could also go for sweaty sex in the dojo after kendo practice
This glorious man look like a nigger to you mongrels?
He was the best king humanity ever saw.
looks like a faggot to me
I meant how he goes out in UBW and HF in particular
in UBW Saber blew up the grail and it needed an anchor to bring itself in the world. the closest thing it had was gilgamesh who couldn't do nothing about it as saber left the world and shirou was distracting him and putting him in a bad place, and uses his chain to climb out and then archer has to come out of nowhere and shoot him in the head
in heaven's feel he wanted to put sakura down before she caused too much havoc but ended up fighting against the very evil that spawned him into the grail war
Merlin was a faggot.
A faggot is you, mongrel.
King Arthur wasn't a woman
Hercules was not a giant 8 foot mongoloid looking brute
Medea was not an elf
Medusa did not have pink hair and visors
Cu was not a blue haired faggot in a blue track suit
>Nasu in charge of historical accuracy
Once Takeuchi convinced him to gender bend King Arthur the rest was history.
Where can I find this?
won't deny it, I have this one picture of Enkidu fucking Gil in the ass, but I don't wanna get banned again
Literally the only reason gilg isn't a sand nigger is that he's a "perfect human" (like Arc) deliberately created as such by the gods. That is, a specific light tone of skin, red eyes, blond hair, and errorless body.
Cu's shit is meant to look like Gaelic war paint.
>Gil cries like a bitch over losing his butt-buddy and keeps being rejected by Saber
>EMIYA's past self fucks either Saber, Rin, or Sakura in F/SN and the three plus Rider in F/HA
>who knows who else he fucked in between then and before becoming counterguardian
Yeah, Archer's the faggot.
EMIYA isn't the most heterosexual guy either
He walked around the mooncell like this alongside a schoolswimsuit+kneesocks wearing master.
Just stumbled across this. What exactly is it supposed to be?
Shirou never seemed like the type of guy that would initiate sex and every time a love scene occurred I thought it was just there for the porn value rather than something his character wants or cares about unlike Shiki where his lust for his sister, friends and family can never, ever end
It's pretty funny to see people bitching about Nasu and historical accuracy, when it's pretty obvious he knows his stuff really well. The licenses he takes are obvious, but the details show he's well aware about even obscure aspects of the legends, like basing Saber's ahoge-pull joke off of The Mantle of Kings' Beards.
Medusa is actually thoroughly accurate save for the outfit. One of the most facepalm-worthy complaints I've heard is people bitching about her being able to summon Pegasus, not realizing how she does it is a dead giveway that Nasu knows the legend damn well.
To be fair, Nasu does tend to stretch for some of the Noble Phantasms.
Like I get Medea sacrificed her sons, but somehow this grants her a sacrificial dagger that annuls magical bindings? And while Pegasus is fitting, what's with Bellerophon, the golden bridle that she uses with him?
And don't get me started on the Gate of Babylon.
someone needs to make a stitch of the ufotable version of that scene
They had to give him the absolute worst Master because they can't have him around with Saber's daughter in the same story
I wish the Beast's Lair guys would include a small bit of Cosmic Air for that scene, and after it's done resume with the rest for an optional patch
Dat ass, tho.
I always figured the original Gilgamesh in the Nasuverse didn't have an actual Gate of Babylon, the Gate was just a representation of his status as the "original owner".
What exactly is Semiramis saying to Mordred to make her all spiral-eyed?
I always though the Servants had Noble Phantasms based on their legends that are gifted to them when reborn as a Heroic Spirit but it seems they have had those powers since forever
>I always figured the original Gilgamesh in the Nasuverse didn't have an actual Gate of Babylon, the Gate was just a representation of his status as the "original owner".
No, he even fought Enkidu with it and reached a draw when he ran out of shit to throw at him.
He just straight-up never fought on his own merit. It's always the vault.
That's more the fault of the original artist than anything else. Just look at his White Len.
