>>119044760 Caster's summoner was kind of an idiot. Out of every noteworthy character in recorded history and myth, the fucktard chooses to summon the infamously untrustworthy Witch of Betrayal. He didn't just choose to summon a Caster, a Servant of the weakest Class, he summoned one that is specifically notorious for being a backstabbing cunt. There are a fuckload of better choices for a Caster, more powerful conjurers from myths and legends, but he chose a mediocre sorceress who made a name for herself by killing just about everyone who ever trusted her.
That's the kind of idiot that willfully summons a Caster.
>>119044347 To be perfectly honest, aside from the improved art and animation and run time, UFO's not really beating Deen in the story department.
Okay, so the source material -- FSN -- it's not Shakespeare or anything, but I think it's interesting, with pretty balanced dialogue and relationship shit. But pretty much these first 12 episodes were pretty bland in terms of interpersonal conflict. The most we saw was a little blushing, fist clenching, and gesticulating. I think the content in FSN could have been handled better.
Combat wise? Great. I'm hyped for Shirou vs everyfuckingthing, but I don't think the jackhammer scene and everything else not-combat-related is just going to be megaawkward just like Deen's shit.

>>119048858 This grail war is biased towards the three knight classes such that the three main families have a marked advantage over the riffraff such that it's essentially only a 3 way. High magic resist pretty much makes a servant immune to caster.
Of course hubris causes most of them to fail utterly anyway.
>>119048858 Servants are all fantastic at fucking up magus. Even the ones without high MR have ways of countering even really high tier magecraft. See: Archer blocking Medea's A rank spells with Kanshou and Bakuya.
>>119049463 That's kind of the point. Going by pure stats, they should win often given a standard variance in master skill. But they don't because the people who summon them are either arrogant as fuck or have ulterior motives and don't use them to full effect.
>>119047364 Caster might not have normally betrayed him unless he made clear that he was a dickish fool. However he went out of his way to make himself a fool, wasting his command seals on foolish things, like limiting her power to be below his out of jealousy.
>>119049688 It's the most difficult to summon correctly and use correctly. Theoretically assassin could win if a skilled mage summoned him with the right catalyst and used him to pick off other masters.
>>119044760 The brief preview showed something that looked like the golden fleece, it's entirely possible that her master was trying to summon Jason or any of the other Argonauts and because so many heroes are connected to the story of the fleece the grail decided to troll him and and send him a "hero" that had similar traits as him.
>>119049989 Li was the one who handicapped himself before the match, because he was tired of always winning with one punch. He wanted to finally have one bout where he could get down and dirty for real and go all out, since he knew next round he'd have to take a dive either way.
He felt each trap in the arena as he was walking over them as Hakuno and Rani/Rin were trying to cut off the source of his power, he chose not to tell his master though.
Enkidu's origin form, before he decided to shape-shift into something resembling a human to go meet Gilgamesh.
Oddly even though it mentioned he copied his form from someone he lived with for about a week while shagging, it seems he did not copy her form entirely, rather there are some straight differences that he added.
>>119050109 Well he was actually capable of holding his own against knight class servants (even berserker but he had caster helping him) unlike the true assassin, but I have a feeling that he would get screwed by "muh honour" (unless he was just acting that way because he was bored and hated caster). He would need a master that would make him obey because he didn't really look like he would have the guts to just sneak around in shadows and stab sleeping masters and if he went toe to toe with other servants he would eventually lose to some killing machine with better stats or NP.
>>119050109 Like others have said, his lack of an NP is going to be debilitating in the long run. If he had a proper magus as a master, like say the observer sent by the Association isn't killed by Bazett before he Kotomine killed her, he might be able to take out Rider and Shinji, and he'll hold his own against others, but his honor and lack of an NP will fuck him over in the end.
>>119050609 I'm not sure that catalysts really work that way. Shouldn't it be like an item the servant has a personal connection to? Like if you wanted to summon a red man with a fucking kitchen knife you would actually have to find a kitchen knife that HE used and not just pick one from your own house?
>Assassin vs True Assassin >Nasu-san CHECK! >If it's just Servant vs Servant, then without complaint, True Assassin would have the better chance of victory. Right, Kojirou doesn't have any means of breaking through Zabaniya. But there's more to it. The problem of Zabaniya is that it's not immediate death. If a normal heart gets destroyed by it, then the person dies immediately but the opponents are Servants. And especially against Kojirou, who has a strong spirit alignment, even if his heart is destroyed he still will have some fighting power left in him. Right in the interval after TA uses his Noble Phantasm, Assassin could close the gap and use Tsubame Gaeshi. Which means....it would be a draw since both of them would end up dead...?
Koijirou works under Earthbound rules, even if he's given a fatal hit he can keep attacking until the counter on his HP finally drops to zero. Unless the first strike makes him unable to move entirely.
