Tohsaka sisters thread.
It's nice seeing a thread with Sakura and Rin without the shitflinging waifuwars bring.
He didn't know about the worms until it was too late.
And they said nighttime /a/ was bad.
Absolute best picture coming through. Make fucking way.
I'm amazed this thread hasn't been shit on my general fate faggotry yet. Good job everyone.
Im in the middle of it on crunchy roll and no, I haven't read the visual novels and no I havent watched fate/zero.
Though I did watch the old fate/night and the movie and its shit compared to the new one
There's an impressive lack of waifu wars in this thread. I'm proud of you guys.
>Im in the middle of it on crunchy roll
Other people in this thread have already pointed out the same thing and nothing happened. And I don't think shitposters really need an invitation to begin with.
I'm pretty upset that the picture of Rin and Sakura greeting each other in HA hasn't been posted yet. That's how they get along now. Scary smiles,tongue in cheek insults and the feeling of being strangled between two vixens and harpies. That is the true releationship of Tohsoka Rin and Matou Sakura as their actual personalities allow. These images of them shown thus far are nothing more than lies.
No, rather than being a super hero that saves everyone, or saves those close to him, it's meant to imply he should be the kind of hero that kills every immediate problem in order to protect the status quo in the background without ever taking a chance to save those in danger in the foreground. The hero who has sacrificed his heart and soul, and now all he has left is an ideal without meaning. Just figure out which side has more people on it, and kill the ones on the opposite side
Everyone loves that end, because Shirou kills everyone just like in that Disgaea 2 ending where Adell kills Rosaline and then his family.
Ok, then let me ask you gurus of fate/stay this question:
Rider died. Why? She died really fast.
Im talking about the Purple BDSM Rider not Eric "I here to drink all your beer and have sex with your wife" The Red Rider.
Reminder that the Edefelts were also considered as dumping ground for Sakura.
But no, he had to give her to Zouken because MUH FUCKING GRAIL WAR.
You could have had double big-tittied OHOHOH sisters if Tokiomi hadn't been such a fucking faggot who saw a centuries-old decrepit old magus and went WELP, I'M SURE THERE NO HEINOUS VAMPIRIC-STYLE BODILY HORROR INVOLVED THERE, NO SIRRRE.
Shinji is a shit master who ranks her stats down and can't provide mana at all. If Rider was under her true master, she'd be able to show power on par with Saber.
Caster's master is buffed by age of the gods magic, and has a special technique that if it hits it will always work. However he just has that one technique in truth.
She naturally fits in with that side of the blood already, after all her and Luvia are cousins. Her genetics show a bit more of that European body type than Rin who is the Japanese type, and she has a natural OHOHO if you let her get ahead on anyone.
The only thing keeping Sakura's OHOHO self down is her poor fortune. Would have worked out a lot better than it did anyway.
That's what happens when you get killed.
>She died really fast
Yep. Some get offed really hard in some routes.
Unlike Gilgamesh, who most definitely always has a dignified role in all routes beffiting his clear pivotal role in all iterations of the story.
Correct me if im wrong but is Shinji not even a mage? So how was he even able to summon his servant in the first place?
And yeah. At the point im at, im surprised he didnt die yet from the bitching he does
Shirou is following Kiritsugu's path, Kotomine only tells half truths, so I can only see a dreaded irony to follow him in his future that somehow gets half the town killed in the end.
He will not find out about the true grail, shit will go wrong in some form. As he gets mind-broken in the end.
I'd imagine that Kotomine's last words to him were one of his usual tricks. "You'll win" or something, like it can be interpreted as "Shirou gets done killing Tohsaka and is about to approach the grail, when Kotomine stabs him from behind and is all "Hey, I see you've won the Holy Grail war, good job. Although you're a little too worn to accept the prize it seems. Don't worry, I who am not part of the contest anymore will accept it on your behalf".
>Correct me if im wrong but is Shinji not even a mage?
>So how was he even able to summon his servant in the first place?
Sakura did, pay attention to what's being said.
Sakura gave him a false command spell in the form of a book to be the master instead. Under the condition that he at least not target Shirou.
>At the point im at, im surprised he didnt die yet from the bitching he does
You should see him in Fate. It's a long succession of him being a moustache-twirling dickbag while Shirou has no fucks to give, until he puts Taiga at risk and Shirou flips his shit.
Well he's following Kiritsugu's path, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree in ironic ways if you end up following it too precisely. Kiritsugu fucked it all up in the end, so Shirou who follows the same path, what result will he reach of course.
Man, no matter how Alter is mentioned, there is always someone who jumps on with "But she's so much weaker than normal Saber, that's the only reason anyone stood a chance". If you ever tell them she's not weaker than Saber but rather stronger even if a stat got a tradeoff into another stat they just keep repeating the same point.
I always find it amusing that, by and large, Rinfags and Sakurafags seem to hate each other while the characters they champion get along pretty well, while Aokofags' and Toukofags' banter is all in good fun while the characters THEY champion absolutely despise each other.
DIRTY RED DIRTY RED DIRTY RED.
Due to the different properties of wrought iron within the system, he can trace a downgraded version of Excalibur just barely.
It's still a shoddy knockoff, but it's worthy of being called Excalibur in part. Unlike what he could do in F/SN.
A bit more power later on in the plot as well, and represents all nameless heroes in the world.
I want bluefags to leave.
People are fucking monsters if they loved the bad ending of Disgaea 2. The same kind of monsters who would of enjoyed the conquest ending in Neptunia 2. I bet they are Urobutcherfags.
Redfags did not exist before the KnK movies, while Blue had her fans from Tsukihime and Melty.
Keep that in mind.
>She does have more Excaliblasts?
>Nothing was upgraded that changed the fight, she was only downgraded.
Higher MAG, STR, and DEF as well. She wasn't downgraded, rather her stats traded off a bit. She's become an unstoppable tank of sorts, who can still move quite quick despite her increased bulk and defense. She's not at a loss here at all, if it was just Rider vs Alter, there's no way Alter could have ever won against that Saber.
Rider would have an easier time against normal Saber by far. At least Normal Saber doesn't have Wolverine level regeneration, and a dense layer of mana surrounding her that negates most hits.
>when Shirou clearly does in HF Normal.
That was retconned.
He can't caonically, they just made the animation before getting Nasu's OK and he just let them use it because they already made it. Archer/Shirou can't trace Excalibur
In the Mooncell a servant through certain means or alterations can become stronger than they were in life. A combination of raising his limits a bit and it being possible to trace wrought iron better allowed him to create a fraction of a miracle.
Aoko knows how to soul hack. Also in CCC he reaches a certain origin.
He can trace it, but only in CCC can it be called Excalibur, even as a shoddy clone. Before that point it was too degraded to even be called an imitation.
How can Rin be shit when she's amazing?
A character from a largely untranslated (at the time) series of LNs didn't have many western fans in comparison to a character from babby's first English-translated VN? Who would have guessed?
Also, the only reason Aokofags and Toukofags aren't at each other's throats all the time is because Mahoyo (the only Nasuverse work that pays any real attention to their relationship and animosity) is not translated. The vast majority of TMfags on /a/ just aren't really familiar enough with the situation to shitpost about it effectively.
She's the only one that really helps you in Extra, while Touko just sits there smoking.
I liked the scene in Carnival Phantasm where Aoko gave the glasses to Shiki, and then Shiki asked her where she got them from, and she answered "I stole them from my sister :P"
It's used in less serious drawings, or different art-styles. It's nothing odd for the most part.
It's like asking why people draw hair in spikes or clumps, instead of drawing it as individual strands like it's supposed to be drawn.
They're smaller than Arc's/Rider's/Adult Aoko's, by like 3 cm. And they don't even have the biggest tits in the Nasuverse, discounting Kingprotea and Passionlip.
Breast isn't everything, but it's foolish if you think it isn't something.
It's definitely a positive attribute; although fitting the right type of breasts for the right girl is important, rather than just thinking that size is everything. However there can be a balance created with large breasts and a figure that doesn't normally seem to be suited for it at times, call it the gap rule. Just like small breasts can sometimes go with a figure that would normally seem more suited for bigger ones, like the onee-sama type.
This is important, this is on the test.
There are certainly some things only possible for certain breasts. Also they're generally filled with hope and love.
So no Shiki? lol ok
what's up with this guy? Aoko(who's LITERALLY Rin 2.0) is trying to kill him and he's "wait don't, killing people is wrong"
is he supposed to be Shirou 2.0?
Passionlip isn't really flaunting it. In her eyes she can only see herself as a very normal looking girl, as she averts her eyes from reality.
She's still counted either way
Ilya's maid is bigger than most people in the bust field anyway.
Rin is the balanced type
I discounted Passionlip because they're so huge they are no longer attractive.
Apocrypha added a couple big busts as well, not to mention Angelica from 3rei being the new 2nd place by my metric.
It's not Sakura, but their body types are for all proportions basically the same.
Understand the different appeals for each body type. This one's probably not hard to understand.
Tohsaka's appeal is in the lower body, noticeably the legs.
In terms of bust there's little going that really stands out in comparison to any others, however she prioritizes more the hip to leg area in general.
Passionlip looks fine depending on the art.
She's more pitiable than sexy in the end. Depending how it's played that can come off as more the cute sort of moe, or just the type where it's just depressing. Could be a bit of both, like Sacchin.
Why is she so based. I also like her route kinda more than rins
She's like Sion mixed with Ilya and a sprinkle of brown thrown in. Whoever came up with her design is a genius.
Like the brain of a child in some freak of nature body, that can't understand that it's a freak because of the way it was made. Tries to be a normal girl, but everyone keeps running away from it. In the end can't really understand anything, because it can't be human, it just never was possible, you were born something wrong.
Similar to Elizabeth in a way, Nasu loves those innocent monster types. Those who cause harm to others without real malice, or have values that are warped and can't really work within society, but not because they are evil. They're just something else from the start, something not really human or aligned with normal ideals, yet lack real malice/evil.
She was created by Sion's sister.
In the regular world-line Sion's sister was the one that died in the womb as they were twins, but in Extra world-line it was the other way around.
Despite appearing super flat, she apparently has more bust than F/SN Rin.
Seems like it
No wonder these two hit it off, Whenever Rin is brought up around Caster she gets made because Rin punched her in the face a few times after tricking her into a magic duel. Lluvia should swoop down and together they can form a club of losers trash talking the popular girl who gets all the merch, the scens and the fans on par with Saber herself.
She's also a secret exhibitionist
She's entirely against wearing undergarments.
Sounds like someone is trying to make a new one, but we have to wait and see if they make any progress like always, before getting hopes up.
As always with TM projects, translations always come at some strange cost or something went horribly wrong.
Extra sold well, to answer what is likely your next question. But PSP is dead and the amount of work this one would take is more than Aksys wants to deal with.
They can make just as much money doing cheap translations or easier projects. It's the classic iphone game strategy in a way. You can put all this effort in this big game, or do a bunch of far easier games.
>Also Extra might not have sold enough in the US to warrant it.
People always say this one immediately after it comes into question why the sequel isn't made, or ask "how badly did it sell to make it not do the sequel", despite how Aksys has gone on record themselves saying it sold well, and it's done pretty well on the charts before. Getting number two in digital sales once. It sold very well, or better than they expected.
However it's still a lot of work compared to the last one. Seems they just passed on it in the end.
Extra bosses are Archer Hercules, ORT, and Type Venus.
To get to ORT you must complete a seventy floor dungeon in one run without saving or healing. If you die it erases your savefile.
Disappointed in you anon
Rin's alright I guess.
>implying Sakura isn't more popular than Rin
This game is pretty good for the reaction faces.
Rin isn't even pure. She's like all typical TM heroines. Lewd and used goods who crave more.
But luckily we have pure goddesses like Luvia in TM.
Japan is notorious for
>Low participation popularity polls
>Wild and rapid changes in which characters are preferred
>Having weird tastes
The Big Damn 10th Anniversary Poll puts Rin in 4th place behind Saber, KnK Shiki, and Archer. Sakura is 8th, following Arcueid, Iskander and Aoko. Rin also blows Sakura out of the water on Pivix, the boorus, merch sales. And there's no question that Rin's more popular among Western fans. Since can probably count the number of posters in this thread who've actually played through Heaven's Feel on one hand, and she's pretty heavily sidelined in any of the anime, Sakura has no exposure among Westerners except for fan art and porn books. But hey, fan art and porn books were enough to make Rider popular in the west long before F/HA actually got translated, Sakura must just not be good enough
because she's a wormslut
Why is Luvia such a bitch?
KEEP YOUR FILTHY DISH WASHING FETISH OUT OF MY CHRISTIAN VN GODDAMIT NASU
Her route is shit, and the way she's been utilized as a curry-obsessed, Arcueid-antagonizing joke character since is shit, but she really had a lot going for her in Tsukihime and a lot of potential that was never explored.
>keeping people from the last grail war alive
>not exactly a good role model
One of us is clearly retarded
