It's a hard act to beat.
>Fate/Apocrypha written by Higashide Yuuichiro, winter 2012. Features 14 servants–7 red servants vs. 7 black servants. The story will be centered around Jeanne.
Remember how good it seemed until it actually happened?
Type-Moon FES 10th Anniversary Blu-Ray Box
>How good it seemed
I didn't think it seemed good at all. It's 2 more Sabehurrs, a bunch of fuckwads you already know the identities and even have the stat sheets of. At least Extra didn't do 2 of those things to keep you interested on top of an entirely new setting to establish.
T-MOON COMPLEX Congratulations! 10th Anniversary
Everyone goes to the hot springs so course, this ends up being a penis-size and breast-size competition between the cast.
It's painfully obvious for any TRUE TM FAN that fate/shit must be buried already. Fate/shit and its target audience of fate/kids are the worst tumors that happened to grow on TM virgin body that cannot create anything now, even Mahoyo was a PIECE of SHIT and BOMBED really hard.
And what is more hilarious - Type-SHIT is pretending like it never happened and preferred to completely FORGOT about their new VN by making another absolutely IDIOTIC fate/shit such as EXTRA/SHIT and APOCRYSHIT.
There is no doubt, NEO-TSUKIHIME remake will be absolutely terrible and stained by filthy hands of Takeshit and Nasushit who completely lost themselves in MILKING fate/shit for last 10 years.
Fuck you NEO-TM scum and fuck your shit taste that corrupted previously a good studio. If those idiots listened to TRUE TM FANS that MODERN SHIT would never happen.
Zero Anime was shit, LN was pretty good though. F/SN is great and Extra/CCC is the best in the series. Apocrypa is interesting and Prototype is shit with an MC thats a dime a dozen.
Extra by itself is shit though and I have the strangest boner for that game just because 99% of the cast are interesting in their own rights but the story doesn't really let you see more.
No. I'm quite fond of Prisma Illya and I enjoyed hollow ataraxia. I haven't read Prototype or Apocrypha though, so I can't comment on those.
The characters in Tsukihime blow the Fate characters out of the water.
The problem for me isn't the focus on Fate so much as the neglect of other franchises. If they could focus on more things at once then I'd be perfectly fine with them whoring out Fate.
I feel Illyaverse Shirou is going the Stella Route while Miyuverse Shirou is deep in the GARcher Route.
Oh boy. You don't even know jap. Translate this pic pls
Did this become a Touhou thread when I wasn't looking?
What do people think of Under Night In Birth? It's from French Bread and it looks pretty good.
More like /jp/ autism. This secondary/primary dickwaving wasn't a thing nearly ten years ago when we had pooshlmer for 2hu.
It's a tool for people to feel better about their investment in a fandom.
I read Tsuki no Sango, interesting but nothing special. I'm an EOP so I can't read DDD as much as I want to read it.
Okay, okay I'm sorry. From this thread everyone keep shouting Tsukihime, Fate, and Mahoyo so I just assumed.
I actually interested in Mahoyo, but after knowing it's something Nasu written before my hype kinda died. Don't get me wrong, I'm still very interested though, I just want Nasu to take a new concept aside from vampires, magician (including them is alright, just don't focus on them too much) also HGW. DDD's actually an interesting piece but translation never so yeah.
The confrontation between Kariya and Tokiomi in particular was handled very poorly imo. I get the intention that they want to show there's a huge gulf in ability between the two of them, and that Kariya is just a suicidal guy with no real chance at all, but the way it was presented wasn't exciting and just felt stupid
My biggest beef with the big "battles" in Fate/Zero so far is that they are set up such that the promise of the possible outcome is never able to be met because they have to keep the characters alive to keep the story going. It's true for every single major action set piece in the show so far: ep4-5, ep7-8, and now ep14-15. They put a bunch of characters together and have them come very close to killing each other, and then pull some plot armor crap to keep most of them or all of them alive.
Sometimes the plot armor makes sense, and it's satisfying to me, like the Avalon plot revelation. But other times it doesn't really work, like when Caster just escapes the forest, or Rider deciding to trample Berserker JUST as Kiritsugu is about to shoot Kayneth, or Tokiomi somehow not bothering to completely finish Kariya off, etc.
It feel that scenes like that cheapen the consequences in the story, and weaken it on a whole. I like it when the story just decides to go with the consequences and make them count, like Kayneth being unable to recover from the shot, and the master/servant relationship being forced to change. Change is good because it keeps the audience guessing and keeps the story interesting. But when characters survive regardless, only to come back to fight another day, it weakens the appeal of the action set pieces.
Kinda. Titles I enjoy the most are spin-offs. At least I'm thankfull for world and character building to Nasu
