This scene made me extremely hard, and I'm a saberfag.
>a human beating a servant
Happens at least like five times in F/SN, which is the story in which the concept of servants was introduced in the first place. There is literally no reason to be surprised by this unless you watched shit out of order. Servants aren't invincible.
>still thinking there is any merit in reading the VN specially after an asspull like this
if maguses can do that, why the fuck they need servants in the first place?
then FSN is the worst written piece of the franchise
>vn goes to great lengths to describe how servants operate on an entirely different level from humans and are impossible to keep up with or understand
>servants are matched by humans several times in various situations
>if maguses can do that, why the fuck they need servants in the first place?
>why the fuck they need servants
>fuck (...) servants
Here's your answer. It's their only chance to meet girls.
>then FSN is the worst written piece of the franchise
Please explain to me your logic here. You have this image in your head of "Servants cannot be beaten by humans no matter what", yet that very thing happens multiple times in the work Servants were originally introduced in. You don't see how this complaint is being self-generated out of your own ignorance and assumptions?
And all of those situations are exceptional in some way or another. Humans can't beat Servants under normal circumstances, but that doesn't mean it's impossible.
hell even the last time saber fought, against a servant that was a super samurai ultimate master of the sword, she is shown to have some kind of supernatural intuition and dodges his super move
here in this fight she just stands around and gets beat up
1 - The buffer is Caster, who comes from a long history of magical tradition and is the only straight-up mage of the Servants.
2 - Casters usually (always) lose, and so aiming for a Caster in hopes of getting sick buffs is retarded and backwards.
3 - In case you haven't noticed, most maguses don't focus on unarmed hand-to-hand combat, so a buff would have diminishing returns. In most cases it would only slightly improve survival chances, but if a magus is being attacked by a Servant it's usually flight or die.
4 - This isn't pitched combat, it's a surprise attack that catches Saber off guard.
Do you know what Fate shit is shit? Because it's nonsense. It's hollow nonsense. There are fantasy stories that have convoluted concepts out there, but what saves them is having an emotional core. Fate shit doesn't have that.
>the main character is a cliche harem self-insert who acts oblivious to everything around him
>the endings are all edgy and dark
>the series relies on cute girls to get sales
Someone enjoying anything in the Nasuverse is enough to write that person off forever.
>gets proper master
>does nothing with her spends most of the time strapped to a chair and "saving" someone nobody wanted to have saved
>archer ends up saving the day
Why is Rin so useless?
Even though I loved how sabrr got the crap beat out of her its still only happened because Sensei had the element of suprise against her, as soon as she decided to fight in close she lost. Dont worry though it will not work again against saber. Many of the masters who beat servants was mostly in all honesty a variation of luck, element of suprise, and not fucking up and to keep applying pressure. Servants STILL outclass them.
>bringing up bakuya who was never even a master
nigger what the fuck are you smoking, iskander had good stats and great compatibility with him. waver was a good master.
Should I watch episode 10 now or is it so bad that reading spoilers here is enough?
Nasu is garbage tier writer who has never written anything good character or story wise.
Urobutcher is so much better writer and Fate/Zero proved it.
>but seriously its not that good or original
>Urobutcher is so much better writer and Fate/Zero proved it.
Higashide is even better and Fate/Apocrypha prove it.
I'd say it's more original than most shit
While I agree with you, that is mostly subjective. It has good girls and a self-insert who always wins at the end. Of course its going to sell.
I never really liked the story myself, and Ufotable is making the fights look amazing.
