Why is she so lewd?
Lookwise, objectively Rider.
She's against hurting lolis unless completely necessary.
>her scenes weren't fun at all.
I wonder how many people picked up prisma just for this webm.
>putting the perfect amazon goddess beside ordinary females
That's not even a contest.
There's another, far more likely possibility: she can't eat well because of her frugal lifestyle, so it is impossible to grow in said places.
Whoever this is.
Not even 100 percent sure that she's part of the fate series.
Rin >>> Bazett = Karen = Liz >>> Medusa > >>> Sakura > SEIBAH >>>>>> Sella >>>> Illya.
She's shy and awkward about her appearance in some respects. Remember that scene in HF where she's nervous because she's so tall? Also, remember the whole Monstrous trait that she's ashamed of.
>all these Riderfags on /a/
Despite the constant Saberfag and Rinfag threads, it seems /a/ has decent taste after all.
Where's your left nipple, Princess of Colchis? It seems you still have no taste for lewdness.
Astolfo is a trap and Fiore is paralyzed in the legs. She rides a wheelchair, but sometimes uses a Doc Ock robot arm backpack if she needs to fight. Wonder why Fastwheels never got the idea
Why the fuck does she have Pegasus anyway? I don't remember my Greek myths too well, but I'm fairly certain Bellerophon was the only person to have Pegasus, and he never crossed paths with Medusa
Oh right, but didn't she birth another god horse as well? Shouldn't she have used that one to make her identity clearer?
I did think she was Medusa at first, but after she used her NP, I suspected she also could have been Bellerophon since I knew the game wasn't above genderbending
I loved the purple. They are great together and pretty boring on their own. I was surprised they didn't ditch Shirou and do their own thing.
Anything else to the Fate bit because I feel pretty satisfied with that HA ending.
Is Tsukihime good or is it too hard to get into after doing the Fate part?
There are some drama cd that have Sakura/Rider related stuff. Only in Japanese though. You'll have to wait until the HF movie.
There are some good pics as well that aren't porn.
I think the biggest issues with the relation Tsukihime and Fate have are powerlevels.
Shiki's MEoDP are so retarded you'll inevitably be thrown into the middle of the "Can Shiki kill servants" bandwagon.
Other than that it's not really an issue.
Akiha a best
There are some entertaining non-h doujins with Rider. Don't know about Sakura stuff much.
Maybe there is something with Sakura, but I don't care about her enough to look for it.
Yes, Akiha best TM and best imouto.
A Caster is fine too.
Except she's taken already.
>watching Lupin 2012 show
>where did i hear the voice of this lady before?
>call Jigen "boiya"
>wait a sec i know where i heard that with that exact tone
>go check the VA after the episode
Can't wait for FHA Vita release and Caster rants.
I don't know if you're being ironic or confused
I felt that Sakura and Rider have a great dynamic in hollow ataraxia and I wish it was expanded on because they were both bouncing between flat and great in the stay night portion. Some scenes they were boring and I was more interested in others, in different scenes I couldn't get enough of them.
Rider might be better on her own but she's too dependent on Sakura and that's a flaw in her character, she's built to be Sakura's friend and it'd be strange if they suddenly were taken away from each other. Similar to ZRider and Waver or Rin and Archer
Akiha = Hisui = Len > Kohaku = Satsuki = Miyako > Arc = Sion = Roastbeef > Akira = Hanepin > Souka > shit > Curry
Should Type-Moon return to their roots or should they move on?
Bad analogy. Iskandr, Waver, Rin and Archer are all developed enough that they can carry a story on their own, and except for Iskandr, all of them do. Sakura and especially Rider have no such development, they're satellite characters that revolve around more interesting characters, more or less
No, she literally says in Hollow that she doesn't eat many sweets because it all goes to places she doesn't want to. It's why her and Sakura have sibling fights where she says thing like: "you have as much potential as all the extra fat on your chest." Isn't sibling love wonderful?
She goes shopping with Ayako and Kaede sometimes, the thing about Rin being poor is false. In fact the information we get from various materials says she doesn't spend much because she is ashamed of using the money of her forefathers. That's it.
Akiha >Len > Satsuki > Arc > Ciel > Sion > Souka > Akira > Miyako > Hisui > Hanepin > Roastbeef > A rabid racoon > A dead racoon > Malaria > Kohaku
They turned Sakura from the worst character to the best in CCC.
Who thinks they can turn Ciel around?
A lot of people don't see how sexy she can be.
Older women in Type Moon > teenage girls
I disagree with this assessment.
Like, you can have a myriad of stories about Sakura working as the club president and those scenes in Hollow are the best. Or her friendship with the priest who replaces Kotomine, and how he and Rider help her relearn magic, which is good. Or her taking over as Supervisor in Fuyuki. She is a good character in that you can have multiple story hooks that can be either mundane or supernatural, and can carry it quite well.
With Rider, there was all the fascinating stuff having to deal with her backstory, where we find out that she became a Heroic Spirit thanks to empathized with a human being. Plus she is one of the rare Servants who actually fits well into society beyond the grail war.
Excuse me if this will sound rude, but you'd have to be literally blind to not see narrative worth in those two, or let your dislike for them blind you to the great characters they have. Which people in this fandom tend to do, so I can't blame you. Sure, they might not be as in your face as characters like Gil or Alex, but that can be good.
Characters that overpower everyone else are tiring, and take away from good synergy. I would rather have characters that can have good chemistry with others but still have agency, then ones who suck up entire scenes to themselves.
>But Gae Bolg (thrown) is B+
>Also melee was in the "what the fuck are you doing" tier of bullshit
Nasu said Gae Bolg thrown was an extremely average Noble Phantasm. Nasu made that example. Yes, Nasu basically said Kouma can fight on equal terms with motherfucking Cu Chulainn.
You should reread that interview answer
I also believe that Nasu simply forgot that Gae Bolg (thrown) is B+ instead of B.
>Q. I have a question about the Servants vs. other character answer in the 9th issue of Comptiq. About a Servant with an average Noble Phantasm, who would have one and what rank would that have been?
>A: That's a serious question. The level of the Noble Phantasm would be B, and ability being represented by numbers would be called an average Noble Phantasm. Broken Phantasm, Barrier of the Wind King (C), Gae Bolg (thrown) (B), that sort.
>On the other hand, those with conceptual effects, destiny interference types fall into a special category. With Gae Bolg (regular), no matter how much Arcueid might be superior to Lancer in numbers, she will be killed depending on her luck, you see.
And in the complete Material there's that Gae Bolg (thrown) is B+
>Gae Bolg: Striking Death Flight
>Maximum Targets: 50 People
It's a typical case of a Nasu interview where he contradicts something he said/wrote before
>Nanaya Kiri's weapon, previously described as resembling a stick or baton, is revealed to be a gun
>Kishima Kouma's imprisonment during his childhood days are construed as some parable regarding utilitarianism and how it is shit
>The final battle between Kishima and Nanaya is an exact replica of the fight between Kotomine and Kiritsugu
Nasu did not forget. + modifier is only a temporary boost and does not in any way equate to an actual rank. B+ is still a B rank NP.
And as Nasu said, Gae Bolg (thrust) has a special ability that basically kills anybody if their luck roll isn't good. But that means that if Cu Chulainn doesn't use that special ability, because he generally doesn't, it's an equal match between him and Kouma, or Aoko, or any DAA.
And Arcueid can also just kill Cu repeatedly before he can even use Gae Bolg for the sole reason that she is far more powerful than Servants on the most part.
Fellas, the ONLY parameter that matters when talking about Nasuverse powerlevels in the amount of crystal meth Nasu snorted (in grams) when he drafted the fight sequence.
>It's a typical case of a Nasu interview where he contradicts something he said/wrote before
It's not a contradiction. Nasu just considers B+ as part of the B rank class. Because it is.
I can't even remember the last time I saw an American in anime who wasn't a total caricature.
Going by KnK, it should be pretty obvious Nasu doesn't do drugs.
The saddest part is that this is probably true.
It is. People go on about how boring Sakura is, but she has varied goals beyond just magecraft. She likes archery and cooking, taught herself how to treat trees, has like several self-help books, the works.
Hell, Nasu makes Medea and Sakura like freaking buds in both Hollow and Tiger Coliseum, it's a wonder why he made a random bishop and Rider giving random pointers instead of Caster.
Especially when he has Caster herself say she has great potential, which enriched her character on top of th as t with the advice she gives Sakura and Shirou about how to live as magi. Just feels like Nasu shoots himself in the foot with her development, and I can't fathom why.
>Which actualy never happened in any story. It has always been a "permanent value" on any NP it's on.
>in any story
>implying they have the time to explain this in any story
It's in the parameter explanations. It doesn't matter if it was in any story. The differences between Proto-Gil and real Gil was not in any story, but we still know their abilities are different because it was explained outside of it.
>not waifu'ing Kotomine
I'm not even gay and even I can see that he is the best Fate girl.
So you're saying that Pegasus and Excalibur are the same?
Because they only differ in + modifiers.
We also have no idea what would be needed to activate any of the "temporal boosts" of any NP.
Just to make sure, we're not going to be able to play this with voices any time this century, are we? From what I heard ripping them from the vita version is nigh-impossible.
I read quite a bit faster than the voices can say the dialogue and in the end it only ends up as distracting and breaks my immersion. I end up just skipping past them in pretty much any VN I read.
I know that and you know that. But Japan sure as shit doesn't.
What the fuck 'are' crumpets anyways?
Are you a retard?
A VN isn't a visual medium like an anime is. A VN is, first and foremost, a novel. Meant to be read. Type Moon VNs aren't animated beyond character movement and expressions, there's no reason to let the dialogue all play out because it's just reciting what you've already read.
women in suits and women in full plate are best
Is アヤカ・サジョウjust a different reading of Ayaka Sajyou or does she have a different last name?
Half the time anime characters are just standing still and talking though. Anyway hearing the voices gives extra emotion and shit. I don't see any reason not to play them but impatience.
You could perhaps make a more convincing case had the Fate VNs been developed with the intention of being accompanied by voice tracks to begin with, but this is not the case. The essence of Fate is delivered through the text and various visual features like backgrounds and sprite effects as well as music. The voicing is only an afterthought. There's nothing wrong with trying to experience every spoken line of dialogue, but it should be understandable that many others see the VN as something to be read, rather than something to be listened to.
That's exactly why I don't listen to them. I have no interest in listening to the voices of people standing around talking.
Now, voices in, say, a fight scene like Saber Alter vs Rider or Archer vs Shirou? Sure. I can see liking that, even if I don't prefer it.
But to me voices in most scenes add nothing beyond being a time waster.
I agree with this.
Fate and Tsukihime are definitely VNs meant to be read first and foremost. In fact, when I read it there wasn't even a voice patch. It didn't exist.
As for Tsukihime, I think the insanity segments just wouldn't be as strong for me with voice acting. Maybe it's because I'm a huge /lit/fag, but I find my imagination does a lot more than any acting can.
I think it's fair that we respect each other's opinions on how they prefer to experience the genre.
Well I'm not trying to infringe on your right to turn off the voices here, someone got on my case for listening to them first.
