>>119700117 TYPE-MOON Ace 7 - 10 year Anniversary interview: Nasu Kinoko X Takeuchi Takashi X Urobuchi Gen
OK then, we'll change topics. Saber has a lot of alter egos like Saber Alter and Saber Lily. How do you see them, Urobuchi?
Uro: What I imagine is that for the Saber Lily storyline, in Fate/stay night, Saber was completely beaten by Caster, and so she became one of her Servants. Like, she thought "I'd be way better off with Caster than with Shirou." (Laughs) Nasu: I never thought of that. Interesting. So in other words, the white dress represents how both her body and soul have been tamed by Caster. So Lily is truly like a "lily" to Caster... you crazy bastard, you did it again... Takeuchi: Lily's design was inspired by the dress she wore when Saber was captured by Caster. Then, we just filled it with feminine qualities that Saber lacked and it became what it is now. So basically, I think Urobuchi really hit it close to the mark. Uro: Really?! Lily looked like a villain to me from the moment I saw her. Imagine her appearing from behind Caster, really working those heels! Just thinking of it gets me excited! Takeuchi: But in terms of villains, don't we already have Alter? Uro: No, she isn't a villain, she's a dark hero. Nasu: Alter is an idealist who clings to her own values even though she's been blackened. In that respect, she isn't a pure villain. Uro: For example, Alter's like how Hakaider was in Mechanical Violator Hakaider (*8). And Lily is the enemy she would face. The wrinkles in the corners of her eyes are proof to that. She'd shine as a villain. Nasu: Then after defeating Lily in battle, Alter would jump on a motorbike in the last scene and ride off into the sunset. Then the narration would come in: "She is a modern knight, who lives in a world of darkness!" (*9) Takeuchi: Motorbikes aside, (laughs) I do think it'd be interesting to add meat to Lily's character in that manner.
Caster's not even obsessed with Saber in the exact same way that Shirou isn't oblivious about sex and Saber isn't obsessed about food. They're just magnifications of minor character traits for comedic purposes.
>>119700200 I never take any of this seriously. I mean, we already know about Urobuchi's fetish for dark heroines with EDGE, so I'm not surprised he's got a boner for an anti-hero Saber Alter and villain Lily. He hates light hearted stuff and all.
