>>120329096 Well, most plotholes are something that is overlooked by authors, but something like this should have explanation. I don't think anyone would just write "they got first shed skin of a snake" and not think about how it relates/works in the context of the rest of the story.
>>120330451 Arturia isn't a man because she's actually alive and not just a spirit, so her form cannot be warped by myths and beliefs, but Mordred doesn't have that excuse. If everyone believed Mordred to be a man, the summoned Servant Mordred would be a man.
>>120330726 I agree that he's influential, has money, magic and connections and that probably he can get all he wants but the fact that they never mention how the fuck he managed to get the snake shed despite all of that it's fucking lazy and idiotic.
>>120330870 How far should they have elaborated? >I went to X country, got it, and came back. >I went to X country; talked to the local farmers, for info; got it; and came back. >I went to X country; talked to the local farmers, for info; spent 10,000 years digging; got it; went grocery shopping; toured a little; and came back. Telling the story of how they got their catalysts might be interesting, but they might as well go deeper with how magic works. It's just unneeded.
>>120331224 They don't have to tell a story of the catalyst, I don't really care how Avalon or Alexander's cloth got into their masters. Those are heroic objects that are likely to be preserved, but first ever shed skin of random animal? That's just too random and wouldn't work the same way as other treasures. Also, the items should be linked to Gil in some way, so I presume that the skin is related to the epos, but it's still work without that. Anyway, they could've just said that it was from the snake from the epos and just do like 15 sec of bullshit explanation, that would've been enough.
>>120331280 > because Kiritsugu probably would have ended up with Hassan otherwise If they couldn't have found that specific catalyst, wouldn't they have just chosen another rather than leave it up to chance?
>>120331610 The problem with Kiritsugu getting Hassan is that Kiritsugu himself is a better assassin than Hassan, but he relies on having a diversion from his Servant. Hassan couldn't do that for him. He'd have to play a passive game, scoping out fights between other masters and then killing all the other Masters at the same time using Hassan and Maiya
Also, if Kirei got any other Servant besides Caster, he and Tokiomi could probably just tag team and brute force their way through the war. Hell, Tokiomi could have done that anyway if he wasn't such a coward
>>120331886 He'd be able to use his NPs one more time or so, which wouldn't have made a difference against Gilgamesh Plus, Alexander and Kayneth would conflict a lot and I really don't see how well it'd work >>120332044 That's the strategy he used because he got a strong Servant. If he had Assassin we don't know what he would've done (aside from intelligence work) Kirei without Assassin would probably do the same thing than in F/SN's Lancer. Fight everyone to a draw to get their strengths, report to Tohsaka, leave Servant in a room somewhere
>>120332026 No I mean somehow Saber under Kerrytugu has 2 stats higher than Rin!Saber. And in general the stats of Zero-servants are too high in comparison to F/SN. >lancelot nearly the same stats as Herakles
