It feels like she was supposed to have a roll but it was cut out at the very last minute.
Berserker gets an entirely rewritten fight compared to the ones in Fate and HF. he also gets the forest scene with Ilya, and that whole death scene between him, ilya, and Gil as a whole. He doesn't do that bad.
Saber's not in the spotlight, but she gets her scenes.
The voice actress said she didn't get a lot of screen time in that movie either. which makes sense. Rider doesn't really matter that much in that route except for 3 scenes. Saving Shirou, fighting Saber alter and digging the idiot sisters and the dense hero out of the rubble. That's it.
She has several fights and depending on if you make certain choices, a bunch of additional scenes. Granted they aren't really good scenes, but the amount of screentime she gets is actually pretty dependent on the player.
Poor girl never stood a chance.
Summoned by a worm bitch who could actually supply her with lots of power and give her a fighting chance only to be handed off to the epitome of uselessness who not only can't supply her with any power but is also a fucking moron too.
My biggest issue with this series is that Shinji doesn't die in all three routes.
Iiya? Oh, that death was likely not quick for him. At least he died quickly and instantly in Heaven's feel. Damn Shirou and Rin for saving his punk ass in UBW's. Ah well, that route was tailor made for things to work in Shirou's favor like a generic shonen protagonist story anyway.
Yeah, that kinda bugged me about Fate. All those dead ends in which she kills you off really made me hate her at first, and it's the route where she gets the happiest ending. Nasu can't into karma when it comes to female characters
It seems like even voice actors don't read the fucking VN.
It's not what they're paid to do.
And I gotta admit, just going off character design, I'd expect Rider to be far more likely to have a route than Sakura, keeping in mind that Fate is an eroge
I wouldn't expect them to, especially when they're playing a minor character. VNs are fucking tedious. There are plenty of more productive ways an actor could use their time to prepare for the role.
It's not like she voiced the PS2 version of F/sn or the Vita version of F/HA and is just being coy in the interview.
Rapists don't deserve to die, and it's not like she stopped him. She enjoyed it, actually, in her own fucked up way. The fact that he changes for the better in the one route in which he is saved shows that he isn't beyond redemption. Even Nasu said he regrets fucking Shinji over so badly. At least we see him and Shirou bro out in HA.
