Well, she is not able to win even in route where other girls don't exist. So there is no help for her.

Unrape her.

>>137293255
No, because of her the entire Holy Grail War narrative is essentially tossed out the window in favor of what seems to be a route directly about Sakura almost to the exclusion of all else. In Fate and UBW, the focus is more on the protagonist, Shirou, who (from purely a writing standpoint) is the most interesting character. Sure, Saber is the main girl in Fate, Rin is the main girl in UBW, and Archer is the main focus of UBW, but in each of these routes the central focus is on Shirou fighting for his ideals. In Heaven's Feel, the focus on Shirou takes a backseat to an almost exclusive focus on Sakura. He's left sitting in bed for like half the route! The story isn't about Shirou anymore, it's about Sakura. At that point, to be honest, the story would've been told better from Sakura's perspective. Add to that that she subsequently becomes an antagonist and, well, it doesn't shed the most sympathetic light. And this is all done while everyone essentially puts the entire Grail War on pause or gets eaten in order to put the whole Grail War on pause. The story just entirely changes directions.

She won in the route where even Illya is in hard for the shiroub owl.

Also,
>other girls don't exist.
She clearly lost to Miyu.
Miyu > Illya canonically.
>>
>>137293255
If you fix her, you might break the best route, so no thanks.
>>
>>137293255
Maybe give her more of a presence in the first two routes.
>>
>>137293255
Give her red hair, put her in a maid outfit, and educate her in how to make and make use of drugs.

Sakura has the problem that she never had an anime.

Saber had 2006, and so did Rin. Saber and Rin again in UBW 2010 AND 2014. That's three mainstream shit going on for them.

Sakura will only get HF, but then we'll have Saber and Rin. Again.

So in the end Sakura just has less screentime, she's much more popular than when the VN came out so her popularity will continue to grow probably, I don't think she'll ever be as popular as Rin and Saber because the other two are already "known" characters by this point.

Also a couple movies wouldn't do HF justice, but the manga is doing well and in 3rei she's become an important character.

Nothing, she's perfect where she is in the hierarchy: right at the fucking bottom.

>>137295671
Sakuras relative unpopularity stems from a time before even the DEEN anime, bro
>>
>>137295671
Sakura was already the least popular heroine even before the anime. She's the Ciel of Fate/stay night.
>>
>>137295773
Doesn't matter. Yes, she was less popular. But the other two got a bigger fanbase because of both anime.

While Sakura's fanbase has grown since 2004, Rin and Saber's has grown much more. Saber is TM's cashcow and Rin is a central character in both Fate and UBW.

While Sakura didn't because she's only relevant in HF.

>>137295911
Even if she had an anime, she still wouldn't be as popular as Saber or Rin. Saber in particular is a juggernaut.

You don't know that. Saber's fanbase comes from the DEEN anime and F/Z mainly. F/Z attracted lot of people to the fanbase. Rin has DEEN anime 1 movie and 1 tv series.

Sakura has a currently on-going manga and some movies coming in whoever knows when.

>>137296023
Old.

>>137296034
Were you not around back when Fate was first released? Saber always got tops in the polls while Sakura was always less popular than both her and Rin.

Even after Fate/hollow ataraxia was released, which had a lot of Sakura scenes in perhaps an attempt to boost her popularity, it didn't help. In fact, it only ended up making Rider more popular.

If people liked Saber more back then, before the anime was even a factor, what makes you think things would change now?
>>
>>137296023
How the fuck does she not even beat Rider?
>>
>>137296034
Saber is shoehorned into everything because of Takeuchi. Not even Shiki could beat Saber, and Saber is a garbage character. She's just the go-to heroine, the one that caters to normalfags the most.

Of course, the poll was after Zero, Shiki would've won if it was 1 year earlier.

Why does she need to be? She's fine how she is. Always thought she was best girl for MC. Though, overall best girl is undoubtedly Rider followed by Rin.

Have you read my post or you're just shitposting?

I already replied to what you said, hell I even said it myself in MY FIRST POST. I already know Sakura wasn't as popular back then, stop repeating the same shit retard.

Fanbases change, the people that liked Fate in 2004 don't give a shit about it anymore, the ones that do are mostly new. Saber and Rin get more popularity because they were always in things that brought new people into the fanbase. Anime.

>>137296292
Was there a point where rider was actually more popular?
>>
>>137293255
Is this the daily falseflagging thread? Don't you get bored? I can look at the archive and read like 5 previous shitposting threads you've been making about Sakura.


Stop being jealous because HF is the only route worth reading in F/SN. Fuck off
>>
>>137296420
Does it matter?
>>
>>137296420
yes, in the very beginning there was one poll where saber came in 1st, rin 2nd and archer 3rd and rider beat sakura

I'm trying to find that poll, if anyone knows what I'm talking about, Saber is wearing a crown and Rin is smiling and leaning on her while saber is a bit embarrassed and archer is smug
>>
Saber has greater mass appeal, both from a personality and design aspect. Rin's a tsundere, so she's naturally popular.

Well, it's basically like how Aigis and Mitsuru are more popular than Yukari in Persona 3, or how... Uh, shit. I don't watch or play enough harem things. Point is Sakura just lacks that certain attention-grabbing "something". The key factor that makes basement-dwelling neckbeards drool over her like a stereotypical comedy movie cop over an open box of Krispy Kremes.
>>
>>137296577
>archer is smug
That's the standard state for Archer. That's like saying "the water is wet".
>>
>>137296647

Honestly, I think it's more like she's literally a side character in the first two routes of the VN and her route is blocked behind the first two route. I think most people never bothered playing HF, even though it's by far the superior route. Rin for example, has a big presence in all three routes.
>>
>>137296692
you're right lol, he was also wearing an unbuttoned shirt so you could see his abs

I think it was some sort of beach theme? I don't even remember, Saber and Rin weren't wearing that much clothing either.
>>
>>137296713
Nah, really the problem is much more simpler than that. Sakura lacks a proper "moe" factor.

Like how Saber is a stalwart king of knights who, deep inside, has the heart of a young girl. Or how Rin's a tsundere who acts tough but actually fucks up a lot. Or how Ilya's a loli. Like in Majikoi, the winner of the last poll was Margit, who acts tough but actually has an adorable side. Ryougi Shiki has this really cat-like personality and her cute, childish side is occasionally shown when interacting with Mikiya. Arcueid's childish and an idiot, but she's also a True Ancestor. Shit like that.

The most moe character always wins in polls, and Fate's no exception. Sakura's just not as moe as Saber or Rin. Then again, I suppose that also makes her more realistic than the other two, in a sense. That's another thing; the more realistic a character is, the less likely they'll be popular.
>>
>>137293255
Not likely.

Not be a wormslut.
>>
>>137293255
She's already the superior sister and the canon waifu.

I'm sure she's a realistic character, it's not like she was raped by worms and her brother for 10 years and emerged perfectly fine in the end without any sign of mental damage.

Worms are no laughing matter.
Even Ufotable has bullied Sakura for her worms, this has to stop.
Memes are supposed to be fun OC stuff, not serious canonical events of a character's past, that would be plain old bullying.
I'm disapponted on mods for not understanding this and banning every single person that mentions it, and for not filtering the word "worm".
They filtered "c u c k" for Saber, why are they being hypocrites and not doing the same for Sakura?

The HF route ruined Sakura for all my normie friends, expect secondaries to react in a similar fashion.

She was being an overly tsun shit for no reason in it. Fate Rin was the best.

Loli Sakura boosted her popularity a lot and she still has twice as much fanart as Illya. That counts for something.

>What needs to be done?
Just wait for the Heaven's Feel movie, then she'll get more mainstream attention from normalfags.
