Distraction, every series that pulls a "this is actually a gritty action series" twist has the first third of the plot doing average anime hijinks to lull you into false sense of security to be subverted later.
It's the same for porkslope, steinsgates higurashi, megucas and bokuranos etc. etc.
>>137815489 >>137815645 or more precisely it should be Kirei's job to go reprimand people for not sticking to them and getting the general public involved seeing as his the resident holy man and his innate compassion for mankind could demand no less
>>137816076 >basically al qaeda during a war >kills a bunch of mob good guy soldiers >crashes the UN meeting and tries to kill all the presidents >actions allow the villains to take advantage of the situation and leads to hundreds of deaths >tries to kill all his friends >is forgiven because he helps a lil in the final battle
You know, if you're participating in the holy grail war there really is no need to go to school anymore in the first place. As people have stated, nobody's going to be an idiot and attack you at school, however if you go to school on a regular basis there's a possibility your enemy will be able to follow your every move, have a great place to spy on you and figure out your daily routines. If you go to a secluded area there's a chance they could surprise attack and kill you.
Also what benefit does school have other than serving as a front any more? You literally may as well drop out. If you win the grail was, as far as you know, you'll get any wish you want, and if you lose you just die anyway. You'd be better off just dropping out and putting all of your time into participating in the war.
Alright guys, let me tell you why I love Shinji so much. It's pretty simple when I think about it. Shinji isn't just the best character in the series, he might just be the greatest character of all time. Just imaging him walking through Fuyuki, all the ladies swoon at his very scent. They know how he smells, the essence of his smell is sold under the the name of "Matou Orgasm." The very nature of Shinji is mystery. could he be playing a deeper game than even his creator realizes? The answer is yes, he has transcended such boundaries as the written world, and has free will to do whatever he sees fit. However, Shinji is filled with such guile, such arcane craft that he does not even use these powers. Why, you might ask? You will never know, for the mind of the Shinji is not one that is easily penetrated. Shinji is such a force of nature in his realm that nothing can truly touch him, the only thing keeping him bound to the page at all is his will to exist within the preordained boundaries of his world. Shinji is not only beyond the comprehension of us, he exists within a plane of true focus and beauty. Observe his playful smile, his gourgeous and rippling biceps, his gallant nose, and most importantly, his eyes. His eyes, like pools of sapphire, provide the only glimpse into the true machinations of Shinji. Do not stare into them. Many good men have gone mad in the attempt. Shinji is not just a character, a formless collection of words and images, he is himself is the binding that holds the saga together. Without Shinji, the entire Fate series as we know them crumbles.
These are just of a few of the reasons why I like Shinji so much.
>>137817253 >I'm fighting in the grail war Taiga. >What's the grail war? >Well >Uhh >hmmm >Saber do that sword thingy with all the lights and shit >what do you mean you need more semen? >I just gave you a whole bottle!
>>137816893 Going to spy on Sakura is the only reason Rin has for going to school whether it's the holy grail war or not. That and keeping the other people there from getting eaten. Opposite reason goes for Sakura and Shinji. They could both get a diploma through hypnosis.
Shirou is the only one earnest about his studies. Oh and Kuzuki has a job and can only make time for his fiance's hobbies in the evening.
>>137817371 He didn't deserve death in Fate, he did in UBW, he was Ruthlessly murdered by Illya's servant in Fate and His servant Ruthlessly murdered Illya in UBW, I guess shirou can't have his only friend and sister to co-exist at the same time.
>>137817613 Well, it WAS important, as a ritual to gain access to Akasha. However, since the three families were stingy cunts who wanted said glory for themselves, they never let that little tidbit get out, leading the only participants to be said families and aforementioned chuunis.
>>137820937 Counter Force don't give a squirt of mosquito piss if someone reaches Akasha. It just doesn't want humanity to destroy itself and the planet.
Besides, the three families are unrelenting fuckups who never had a chance to begin with, so no worries. >Einzberns clinically retarded, summon the fucking devil to help them win >Makiri suffering from brain rot, bloodline in decline >Tohsaka cursed with selective retardation in critical moments
>>137815395 The Nips don't have much land or space for farmland, so they improvise. Basically, high school is a pasture wherein they fatten up children's minds and bodies until they're perfectly tender. Following 'graduation', through a lottery system, approximately 50% of all graduates are selected for meat processing, typically the bottom half of the class academically, but extracurriculars are taken into account as well. Barring high schoolers with connections, job experience, or a public-facing job, none are spared.
This is why the Japanese perception that life ends after high school is so prevalent in all their forms of media. Because it usually does, and even the ones that survive wind up living a soulless life devoid of enjoyment and filled with survivor's guilt.
>>137826219 Well I was under the impression that 8 hours is the norm or whatever Also I forgot that because of the nightmares, he probably doesn't sleep too well But the answer is probably "shhh, don't think about it"
>>137815395 Initially, it expresses that Shirou is in over his head and refusing to face up to the situation he's in. Later, when he knows about the barrier around the school, he keeps going to look for the other Master who set it up. (This is also one of the reasons Rin stays in school, because she learned about the barrier right off the bat. The other is Sakura.) Sooner or later in all routes, he either stops going to concentrate on training and other war-related things during the day, or the school is closed due to Shinji setting off the barrier and everyone collapsing.
>>137815489 Battles between Servants are only fought at night to preserve secrecy. Even crazy people like Gilles observed this rule.
>>137815879 Rider attacked Ayako and sucked her blood on Shinji's orders. Later, in HA, she has a fixation on Ayako because of this and stalks/hits on her, much to Ayako's discomfort. (It's not nearly as funny as the pick-up lines she tries on Saber when Shirou and Sakura need a distraction, though.)
>>137817253 When he decides to do just that in two different routes, he just tells Taiga he has to do something he can't tell her about, and she's okay with it. Yakuza family values, and all that.
>>137826109 I did this during high school. You can't keep it up forever, and I'd typically sleep-learn through CS/Engineering classes (seriously actually worked because I was on the cusp of unconsciousness the entire time), but otherwise I could totally operate on 4 hours sleep for 5 days consecutive. Mostly spent my afternoons and evenings either working on projects or watching anime/reading VNs.
