Let's have a best girl thread
Reminder that this will never happen.
Tokiomi a retarded shit
Dark Sakura is hot, but I prefer vanilla.
I can't tell if that is or isn't dark sakura since generally I tell by if it has red eyes
But she has white hair, BB and others still have purple hair.
This open sweater fad is so dumb. You either show the titties or the covered sweater puppies, both just doesn't work.
Blossom's hair goes white in the CCC route.
It's a reversal, if you played HF you might think it's because Dark something, but really a Nurse is just drinking her energy like a snowcone and she's dying slowly. She's like, "I'm just a machine, don't worry if I die. It simply means I'll be replaced with something else" so MC does what an MC should do when the girl starts talking like that.
Either way that image is notably Blossom on Pixiv
Why come Sakura and Saber get threads all the time yet the best girl,Rin doesn't? Does /a/ have shit taste or something?
What the fuck is this? Goddamn lolicons can't even get Sakura's fucking hair color right.
Well Lancer doesn't have boobs. And he's like what, the third or fourth best looking guy in the VN? Plus he doesn't get as much attention. Not that he's not a bro, but that's how it is.
It's not "Even Sakura", she's a main heroine with an entire route of pure development, and he's a servant who got a bad ending in every route while never being explored as much as he should have been.
The best treatment he got was Ataraxia, years later. Cu was always lagging behind in terms of showing himself as a character compared to the Arthurs or Emiyas out there. It's like you're expecting Hercules to also be in the top twenty here, despite also being gimped in terms of screen time.
Sakura got enough screen time and action to get a decent fanbase, but Lancer is always the E rank luck who needs to get a solid chance to really prove himself, but can't ever quite get it.
At least he got an episode in Carnival Phantasm.
wow this thread has barely any sakura
you guys suck
>tfw his entire day-long fight against Gil in Fate was cut out
oh but i'm sure the unbearably shitty forced sex scenes were vital to the story
I'm a bit busy. Here.
Also, what do you guys expect for the HF movie?
I'll post some of the Rider pictures I have that happen to have Sakura in them for you guys
Do not try to like the fish. That's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth. There is no fish. Then you'll see, that it is not the fish that you like, it is only yourself.
>Black Shadow [??]
>It gave the impression of a jellyfish on land. The Black Shadow was impervious to conventional attacks, and the target could only await death in its presence.
>We ran out of ideas after Saber and Rin routes, so the Black Shadow was a surprise antagonist after much pondering.
>It was a favorite of the Chief Director. In terms of how much love the Black Shadow got, its event CG and wallpapers were crafted with much care and effort.
Shadow was one of the staff favorites in the end, or just Nasu's favorite as chief director.
Shadow needs more love
Clearly it was the most moe character in the game, before they realized it was too great so they had to combine it with another character in order to make it weaker as a concept. Such an unearthly almost ORTish thing, it would only grow weak if it grew a human ego like that thus making it beatable.
I really like the shadow's design. It's abstract simplicity makes it look completely alien among the rest of the cast.
I feel that in a situation such as this, I would honestly be questioning if I would make through the day with my balls intact
The sex time is always shorter
In somebody else's route
You dream about marrying Shirou
But he is the biggest coot
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the basement's floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin' for?
Under the worms
Under the worms
Darling it's better
Down where it's wetter
I'll give you sperms
Up on the street they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin'
Full time to fuckin'
Under the worms
Is every female in TM batshit insane?
I expect there to be the two ero scenes with acutal sex. This is a movie and there's no reason not have muh true love in there.
well, that's the last of everything I have that has Sakura in it
Same could be said about Kotomine, but that's why it's one of the themes of the route.
No, this is a Sakurafag thread.
But have this as a parting gift.
Go back and read, first part of the route plays out like a horror story where shit keeps escalating and some monster in the background is causing everything to fall into chaos as those that played the previous routes can only be left in wonder. Then there's some character development as people feel it's a dropoff, and finally everything that was set up finally comes to its head all at once.
First part of the route was tsukihime as fuck
Oh well, thanks anyway. I'm expanding my folder at the moment.
Depends on the route
If you ever play Tsukihime you'll get the similarities pretty quickly. Shiki constantly dreams about killing people at night, and he's not sure if they're dreams or fake as well for one thing.
It's already the "All Around Type Moon", "Carnival Phantasm", or whatever else have you of the new generation.
By the time it finally does get translations people will be like "Fuck no, why is the best Type Moon 4koma yet ending so soon? Why am I just hearing about it?"
It's not ending yet, but I imagine it will be by the time we finally gets trans. It seems like one of those which will only get some appreciation when it's awhile past. It's just a fun comedy with an upfront laughable premise though.
>Saber is the one who supports Shirou to prevent him from going down a self-destructive path as a CG. Makes him realize that sometimes, he needs to think for himself, so that he selfishly pursues her after death even as a soul and gives God the middle finger to reunite with her in Avalon.
>Rin and Shirou are on equal footing. Neither one is truly better than the other, but rather, both have their strengths and weaknesses. They help each other to overcome them and become better people as a whole, rather than individually.
>Sakura is helpless and can't really do much without attaching herself to Shirou. As such, he sees her as something that needs to be saved and protected, so he drops his ideals to fight for her and protect that smile, no longer wanting to become a Hero for the good of humanity.
Eh maybe, Japan certainly agrees it's possibly. It's not cheating as long as it's a threesome, and top bitch always has to know she's the main one.
Just don't ever try any foul play behind the backs of the others.
>the one who supports Shirou to prevent him from going down a self-destructive path as a CG. Makes him realize that sometimes, he needs to think for himself
Sounds more like Sakura to me.
>Rin and Shirou are on equal footing.
The fuck they are. In the ending they are master and student. Rin has to save Shirou from all the time, while he barely contributes anything more than an occasional meatshield.
Ignore this post, I just realized that's not even the usual image.
Fine with eying them, not so much if she feels her position is actually threatened like in UBW Good End when Shirou pays more attention to Saber than the girl he had sex with. People seem to overstate "Tohsaka is amazing, bisexual and you can fuck girls together or separately and she won't care as long as she gets hers. While jealous Sakura gets miffed if you even look at another girl".
Sakura gets miffed during that one scene when Rider comes onto you as Shirou takes it seriously, before she backs off. She's fine with Shirou spending time alone with her shopping at other times apparently though. Rin will check out girls as well, but she's known to get jealous as easily in different situations, as both Sakura and Rin gang up and call a full on truce when the much bigger danger Bazett shows up to ruin the odd peace they have going in that harem. Could either of the girls be talked into a threesome if you do it right? Probably, but you have to use different methods for each.
If you want to get the legendary five way you have to play your cards smart, or die trying.
It's up to you if you want to live an average life or go out a legend.
It's also Sakura, but in her case it's more of a
>I need to protect that smile and if I'm not there, it can't be protected
In Saber's case, it's much more selfish since Saber is already at peace (which is how she ascended to in Avalon), but he pursues her anyways.
>Rin does shit to save Shirou aside from the day 3 lancer death.
So far in the UBW anime I remember Rin restraining Shirou against a tree or wall at least three times. Shirou only is useful against Gilgamesh, because he just happens to be fucked in the head in such a way he can beat that guy and ONLY him. He also cannot activate UBW without Rin's help. And don't forget there's a whole bad end where she gets him out of the war safely.
God,When it comes to sexual acts Shirou is a beast. He fucking dominates Rin and Saber in bed like their some sort of sex doll and I haven't seen how it goes down with Sakura but going by that pic I assume it's more of the same. I guess there's a reason why he's known as Sir Jackhammer.
Hearing that moment at least is a small bit funny even if you don't know what they're talking about. They're talking about some incredibly plot heavy stuff for ten minutes straight, and then at one odd moment Archer apparently doesn't want to be left out or wants to make it look like he's paying attention so he's like "Yeah, yeah... yeah?"
First sex scene Sakura takes the lead as he's not sure what's going on, she goes on top there. He just can't keep up quite yet.
Second scene still mostly her, by the third scene he starts to take charge and is the one to ask to have a go at it himself. Then they fuck for a few hours straight.
Cut to a year later and Tohsaka finds some shampoo in her living room, and wonders if they've been doing something strange in there while she was gone.
With UBW the romance aspect mainly comes in at the end in some ways, Fate it comes in during the middle, and HF it's closer to the beginning.
Could just be how I see it; with Tohsaka they never really said they liked each other or really started paying off those flags up to that point until around the sex scene as they finally spoke their true feelings right before. With Saber there was a romance angle going on ever since the winter forest scene at least, as he decided that he had to save her, that he loved her, and you started to see something more from it right away. You saw more of a romance angle explored compared to the next route, although you saw Rin far more explored as a person in general. HF it benefits more from the romance angle early on as Shirou is forced to make some hard choices there, so in order to make them heavier it has to feel like it means more personally from a certain point. Love and the meaning of which is part of the core of that route in a way.
With Rin you don't need to explore the relationship in a romantic sense as much during the route itself in some ways. Instead they explored their compatibility as people and how they work together, The romance angle came closer to the end, but what I meant earlier is that you don't need to explore it as much because you know they're just starting out their path together in that way. They haven't even officially declared that they're going out from what I recall, but you know they surely are right there. There will be many times they have as a couple working together and fighting against each other to come, but it ends on a note that makes you wonder about such times. Different sorts of stories anyway, it depends on what benefits which angle more, as all three routes each flow in their own way for a reason.
So of course the H scenes also follow this logic.
Saber gets two H scenes as her development in that state started a bit earlier, Tohsaka gets one(Although she also gets one in each route), and Sakura gets three or so as it started ever since about the seventh day from what I recall.
Sakura is an evil wormslut bitch.
People who like her are either specul snowflakes, people who don't really like her but her coverup self which is not at all her real personality or they are just faggots who only played the first 30 minutes of UBW before they started posting and think Sakura is the classic "shy girl that really likes you but has a hard time confessing her feelings to you" archtype.
Rin's a fuck-up. Even the time she rescues him from death is her fault for not making sure everyone was gone. In any case, you're going to see Rin almost get her block knocked off without Shirou pretty soon. If you can't read the VN, don't base your ideas of character dynamics pure;y on a partial viewing of a route.
>He also cannot activate UBW without Rin's help
Maybe in the two week span of time known as the HGW, besides, Archer did more to help that than Rin can claim. Without him, Shirou would have been a cripple for a long time.
I feel like UBW was the most naturally developed romance, or at least the best paced.
In Fate, the entire thing started because of a lesbian moment in the shack and while that is plausible, it feels a bit weak rather than Shirou slowly coming to realize he loves Saber for himself.
In HF, the entire thing starts because of lust and loses a lot of the 'romance' impact. It's a much more traditional white knight shounen story otherwise.
In UBW, Shirou and Rin bonded throughout the route and clearly had developing feelings for each other in addition to their crushes on each other. You can see little things that confirm their love for each other such as how Shirou tells Lancer to stay away from Rin. It culminates during the jackhammer scene, but prior to that it was well developed.
What about Bazett? I imagine her H scene must be the most awkward thing ever due to how hardheaded she is.
She's cute and deserves happiness after enduring so much fucking suffering and rape. Even after all she went through she's still selfless and just wants to live a happy married life with Shirou. She's deeply loving, extremely caring, and even has some cute sassy traits. She's probably the only girl that would go the extra mile to appease any fetish to try and make you happy while rarely fighting or arguing.
Hisui is great but I prefer the kind and more cheery ara ara type. I know Hisui is very kind too, but outwardly she gives that strict vibe that would make one feel kind of uneasy.
>You can see little things that confirm their love for each other such as how Shirou tells Lancer to stay away from Rin.
It's a bit hard to count a player chosen option, when the more "Shirou" choice is usually the more normal one in those cases. Rather than "Yes, but.." the standard MC thing is just "Yes".
Unless Ufotable chooses to animate that choice as the Shirou one, I don't know yet. He's so sure of himself there, while later on he's not sure about it at all in similar context, almost as though it was just a fun option like skipping lunch with Saber.
Actually Sakura's pretty selfish,petty,jealous and demanding.She even goes as far as to say these things herself in HA during their castle date. The whole "Princess Sakura will cease to be after tonight, right Senpai?" speech.
>If you can't read the VN, don't base your ideas of character dynamics pure;y on a partial viewing of a route.
And here's another retard that believes that, because I reference the anime in any way, I must be a secondary despite the fact I'm citing things specific to the game.
>Maybe in the two week span of time known as the HGW
"Maybe in the HGW"? Well, I'm fucking sorry princess. I was not aware Rin was a self-destructive person before the grail and UBW True ends with Shirou staying by her side so she won't fuck up harder than anyone could. Oh wait. That's exactly what Shirou is. UBW is the route where Shirou's ideals have to face reality and the problems it causes him. But no, Rin and Shirou are totally on equal footing.
>Rin's social image is that of a no-nonsense, perfect, cold, and calculating person
>But she's actually pretty insecure, a fuckup, clearly a sub, and is lovey-dovey
>Sakura's social image is that of a demure, kind, sweet, and love-dovey girl
>But she's actually a selfish, petty, demanding, and confident bitch
I love that dynamic.
Sakura actually enjoyed getting raped by the worms
Normally, I'd agree, but with how Nasu structures his VNs with all the deathflags and affection points, I see both as equally valid. That's not to mention the multiverse aspect as well.
Goddamn man, even if you have nothing better to do with your time there must atleast be a few other threads in the catalog that interest you.
What a bully.
>Well, I'm fucking sorry princess. I was not aware Rin was a self-destructive person before the grail
>UBW True ends with Shirou staying by her side so she won't fuck up harder than anyone could
UBW is the route where Shirou's ideals have to face reality and the problems it causes him.
Right, but that is one route out of three where she in fact doesn't help in that way and he still manages to come out fine.
Doujinshi, fujo stuff, porn
Seo and Jinako are Fujo types, and Gilgamesh is capitalizing on it with his usual business practices.
In the name of Christ, I banish thee, bully!
>that is one route out of three where she in fact doesn't help in that way and he still manages to come out fine.
The whole route she is learning about him and what happened to Archer. What do you think the dreams where about? She's the only person who actually can understand him and therefore help him. And she does, that's what UBW True is about.
>tosaka knew that they just threw sakura out cause of "muh single child" policy
>got raped and altered to the point that they don't even look related
>give her the stink eye whenever they see each other
what a frigid bitch
I was joking with that under the worms thing Anon. I love Sakura.
Shh, no need to force it out. Just tell us when you're done shitposting, okay?
It's rare when people respond to these things the right way, rather than using it to go into waifu wars. No matter how obvious the bait
I would say that means we're getting better again, but parts of this thread would still tell me a bit otherwise.
Each step in the right direction is still good though.
wasn't even someone you replied to, but you're free to go on a crusade to defend your unpure maiden, I just wanna tell you it'll be easier for you if you don't let them get to you
If you really want to show them being sisterly show that picture of them giving each other "The stare" That shit was hilarious and far more in character to their relationship with each other.
Translations are still set for never.
>implying Shirou losing his ideals is bad
What's wrong with being a normal human being for once? Living with a loving family?
HF True it's the end of a tale, and the beginning of another, I don't know why people insist that he must become a justice warrior.
His ideals are inherently harmful to himself, which is why Rin wants to help him. Him throwing them away is a good thing (for himself). Him throwing away his body, and his what he meant to be his life, was a final heroic act. All in all, Rin is useless at this point, she is even dealing with her own personality problems.
Why do people insist having ideals is bad? pursuing something of worth is a beautiful thing. The only ones who would shame a man for doing so are cynics and/or people who could never hope to do so
I wasn't implying it was a good or a bad thing, but you have to admit that his ideals was a huge part of what made Shirou himself.
And anyway, this is a tangent. My point was about Shirou and Rin being on equal footing, about Rin helping him more than he helps her; not about UBW True being the best end for him.
Because being a justice warrior is what makes Shirou, Shirou. That's him at his core and Sakura destroyed all of that and made him a house husband/fuck toy. Sakura's love is poison and is only good for her. Rin's doomed to end up with some shitty faggot half assed mage, Shirou's broken in a different way and Saber due to the grail mud is doomed to never be able to rest in piece. That's why UBW true is the best ending in the game. Saber rests in peace, Shirou and Rin go on to be partners, Shinji stops being a faggot and actually starts being nice to Sakura, Sakura won't have to worry about worm rape anymore because Zouken likely turned into nothing but a worm monster after the last 2 weeks. The only one who didn't get to be happy is IIya who got to die alone and scared. But she was fucked to die anyways. Saber's love is so forced and stupid it might as well not be Saber but that girl from Fate/Prototype.
I don't think Sakura is what's used and dirty here...
Arc seems dissatisfied with her new room for some reason.
Do you think having a normal life is bad? Do you think only the pure and ideal can be regarded as worthy of pursuing? Maybe it's you that is a cynic, in the original meaning of the word.
I never said that having a normal life is bad, I'm saying there is absolutely nothing with trying to be a hero. Not seeking what is good is not an evil, but condemning the pursuit of good might as well be
Nobody is saying trying to be a hero is bad per se. Nobody would complain about fire fighters, for example. But Shirou isn't like a fire fighter. He's more like a guy that would go into a house on fire and not stop until every single burnable thing was out of it. He wants to do good but he is set up for disaster.
>What's wrong with being a normal human being for once? Living with a loving family?
Nothing, but there's also nothing wrong with having ideals and becoming a CG.
This is something Archer finally acknowledges in CCC and in UBW as well.
people really tend ot exagerate how much Shirou puts himself at risk. It's true that unlike Kiritsugu, he would much rather place himself as a calculated risk to save everyone, but like any normal person, he has a sense of self-preservation. He was smart enough to hide when doctor Gil was taking an appointment
>Because being a justice warrior is what makes Shirou, Shirou. That's him at his core and Sakura destroyed all of that and made him a house husband/fuck toy.
So, you're saying that once a person is fixed in a goal, he can't stray away from it? People change, their motivations and feeling change with the time. It's like saying a young carpenter can be nothing but a carpenter all his life just because he did it for some years in his early life. You're trying to change the facts in your favor and make HF look bad(Rin can love Shirou and only Shirou, anything else is shit-tier) and Saber's sacrifice was certainly not in vain.
I feel like you hatred for Sakura is tainting your opinions in HF true. Sakura tried her best to not get involved and protect Shirou, is not her fault Zouken is a sick faggot and corrupted her with the grail.
>So, you're saying that once a person is fixed in a goal
It's less that Shirou is fixed on a goal and more than his existence is wired in a particular way. I'm not going to bother reading the rest of your post since the analogy is probably as retarded as that supernova comment.
But I will point out that even when Shirou chooses Sakura, he's still satisfying his imperative: to make Sakura happy. Shirou is someone who can only be happy when the people around him are smiling, so in a sense, he just re-purposed his ideals to focus on Sakura.
The only exception is Saber.
is that Saber or the better Saber?
Nah, he's not really dating her and didn't really like her or anything. Rather AUO just finds the entire situation kind of foolish in the same way everyone else did there. Like "Hakuno, do you perchance have some masterful ability to specifically attract only incredibly dangerous chicks?".

But in the midst of the blast I thought would tear me apart you took my hand and said this: “Explosions do not suit you. Rather, simply for you to be sprayed with tank oil would be a great crime. And by the way, those horns are shockingly adorable.” Oh…it was so bold, so sensual, so attractive I could have just sunk my fangs into your neck right there…

Damn, that takes persona 3 or persona 4 level of skill to pick up a crazy chick that easily. By any chance could she be that game's caster? Those are always kinda nutzo on the romantic aspect just like Lancers are on their luck and usually being forced to kill themselves.
Harem is more cut-throat than ever, while at the same time working together pretty well as a team.
At one point you get close to penetrating Nero as you start sexing her up on the bed, before Rin interrupts it all. Hakuno excels at only picking up the especially dangerous types though.
Her voice kind of grows on you. It's got a pretty nice range.
Vid reveals her name though
Well she's fucked. also, poor whatever girl that is. If that Rin and those 4 Sakura's are as affectonite as the real ones it's gonna be a tough time. I gotta hand it to Nasu, All these spin offs and Shirou himself never plays a role, The only reason I can imagine him being in the IIya spin off is because you can't have IIya without Shirou. where's they can do without Saber and Sakura being around.
Sakuras tend to range, but they're about as different from the real one as Nero is to Arthur.
In terms of affection, it's probably even more so if anything. Though this can make it troublesome at times, when their definitions of love are all different, and sometimes incredibly warped because of how literal inhuman they are. It's not about evil or malice, it's just that something inhuman will never really see eye to eye with human ideals or what we perceive as normal. This is true for Lancer as well, who is part dragon. Due to her inhuman blood she will never really see eye to eye with some human concepts, no matter how much she may long for such a simple thing.
Lilith for example, her idea of love is melting down the one she loves and absorbing them, along with everything else in an EoE kind of way. All things must become her, I suppose.
>Meltlilith :: But really, coming here with no plan at all. Should I have even bothers declaring that we would settle things here? I had heard that it’s only small insects that fly into open flames, but recently it seems that humans too are looking to die. Very well then, in that case I will crush you like an insect. Your pesky Servant will have his exit here. And after that, Hakunon, you and I will become one. Don’t worry, there will be no pain. This is a poison just for you. It’s the form of highest love, made for you alone.
>Gilgamesh :: Meltlilith. There is one truth in your words. I imagine others would argue, but I will not call you evil. What is love to begin with? Is it absolute, is it relative? Does it go on forever, or will it end in time? The answer which many women avoid, you have held from the start. Even if it’s an immoral thing. The very incarnation of a young girl who cannot forgive the slightest impurity, who loathes all discord. However — that is why you and Hakuno are incompatible. This woman is rootless and seeks no absolutes. She is a sample of the still changing “human being.” Your earnestness will never reach a human being. In the world of humanity, there is no eternity. The moment you asked for it, your love was fated to be broken —!
>Gilgamesh is right. Meltlilith’s love is based on her one-sided sense of values. Making the one she loves one with her, put another way is just making them her property.
>Meltlilith :: I’m shocked. Truly shocked. You say I don’t treat Hakunon like a human being? That’s — isn’t that what I’ve been saying from the start!
>Gilgamesh :: ……Mm. Now you mention it, you did indeed profess so.
>Meltlilith :: I don’t need anything human. After all, feelings are repulsive, and dolls are easier to love, don’t you think?
