Read the fucking LN. He tried to take her back for years but faggot Acht wouldn't open the barrier and Kiritsugu was past his prime so he couldn't just blow up the whole thing and shoot down everyone who tried to stop him.

He's also edgier than a dodecahedron and emotionally hasn't aged past a 7 year old. His ideal is a crock of shit, and in the process of chasing it anyway he destroys everything he actually possesses, including his father, mother figure, wife, lover, and daughter. In the end he was only able to save one single person, and even then Shirou in most instances just went off to emulate Kerry, and die the same miserable death having accomplished nothing.

Kiritsugu is shit.

Well he is definitely my favourite protagonist. As others have said he failed but I don't think he was delusional for believing in the grail. He lived in a world of magic so it makes sense.

Mostly I like him because he is so different from most protagonists in other anime that have ass pulls to save them, or don't end up having to make hard decisions. He killed his father and Natalia for what he believed was the greater good.

>>
>>122149692
>He lived in a world of magic so it makes sense.
Literaly everyone else in that world magic knows that his idea was bullshit.
>>
>>122148160
He saved probably hundred if not thousands of people over his years working as a freelancer, probably just not as many directly. He killed his father who potentially would have killed dozens of more people. He killed all the ghouls and shit on the plane and if they got out there would be millions of people potentially dead in New York.
>>
>>122149755
His reason for cheating was that he doesn't feel miserable enough.
>>
>>122149764
Who else thinks the idea is bullshit? Nobody just randomly said, "hey Kiritsugu your whole saving the world thing is retarded." Natalia just said he needed to save himself first before anyone else. He never talked to anyone else about it aside Iri and Saber who agreed with him.
>>
>>122149836
>He killed all the ghouls and shit on the plane and if they got out there would be millions of people potentially dead in New York.
The whole plane thing was so fucking retarded.
>>
>>122149836
He also killed hundreds to save those thousands and in the end killed thousands by destroying the Grail to prevent the death of millions.
His ideal was wrong and it brought him nothing but suffering.
>>
>>122149922
>Iri
He literaly raised Iri.
She is 10 during F/Z

Also literaly everytime forcing "Wold Peace" is brought up.
>>122149973
That doesn't make sense.
Or I am not following your logic correctly
>>
Did he forced those "kill someone important to save a bunch of strangers" situations or did fate just hated him?
Because faggot got into those situations like all the time while everyone else just had to deal with shit like that just once or twice.
>>
>>122149973
So you'd rather have billions dead than a few thousand?

It was either the end of humanity or what ended up happening, a few thousand dead in some jap town. Most people would sacrifice the lives of the few versus the many if there was no other choice.
>>
>>122150021
I'm saying that he didn't just "save thousands", you also have to take into account all the people that he sacrificed in the way.
>>
>>122150102
Yeah but in the big picture they dont really matter.
>>
>>122150102
I think noone argues that Kerry wasn't completly retarded.
But the ideal in itself isn't a problem
>>
>>122150148
You do realiza that's a pretty fucked up logic.
>>
>>122150209
Your logic is honestly not much better.
I mean for example not destroying the grail would have been a much more stupid decision
>>
>>122145510
>>122145365

Kirei pls go.
This is Kiritsugu thread.
>>
>>122150174
Yes, it is.
Kerry's ideal was wrong because it was decided from the very beginning that someone would be sacrificed.
It wasn't a "do everything you can to save everyone and make sacrifices if it's necessary", it was the kind of ideal where he was already considering who sould be saved and who shouldn't even before trying to do shit.
>>
>>122150209
Not really, when the alternative is wide spread death and the outright apocalypse almost any amount of sacrifice is justifiable.

>>122144877
He's also a fucking idiot. Even without any knowledge of the Grail being an omnicidal hate machine, he should have been able to figure out that his wish just didn't make sense. He didn't even have a proper wish. He wanted a world of peace and happiness devoid of suffering and murder, but he had no idea what such a world would look like or how to get there. And for some fucking reason he never tried to solve the cognitive dissonance of thinking humans are assholes and also thinking that humans could live in the undefined world he had the vaguest image possible of. He didn't even know what his wish really was, despite pursuing it with everything he had. He had almost a decade to work on the wording of his wish, and he still just ends up with something as sketchy as, "I want a miracle to save the world from something, somehow, and remake it into something very specific that I can't fully imagine."

I mean goddamn was this man a moron. When wishing upon an omnipotent power to fix shit, at least make sure you have an idea of what shit you want fixed, and what that shit should look when fixed.
>>
>>122150279
I personaly consider it more a problem of his mindset.
For example being completly unwilling to take a risk.
>>
>>122150279
I just realized I went full retarded and mixed his ideal with his philosophy.
His ideal was stupid too, though. Removing conflict from human nature would be the same as removing free will, which means that in the end you are not saving humanity, you are saving a bunch of mindless robots.

>>122150569
The moment he starts denying freewill he has already become a villain and his whole quest to save humanity becomes worthless.
It's funny how Kiritsugu, the hero, was trying to restrain humanity from its freewill while Kirei, the villain, believes so much in that freedom bullshit that he would even allow an Eldritch Abomination that wishes to exterminate humanity to exist just because it has the same right to be born as any other being.

I wouldn't go that far, maybe if he wanted to became the godking but he wanted people to stop creating evil magic shit and starting wars. I'd imagine the people Caster got his hands on would be fine with the end of conflict and suffering.

The guy dual wields guns(often enough), wears all black and a fucking trenchcoat. He should be unintentionally funny like most anime heroes and make me snort and roll my eyes but he's weirdly engaging. Maybe because he's doled in more tolerable doses whatwith F/Z's ensemble cast.
>>
>>122150835
What? Evil cultists just want the Ctulhu expy to be born because they believe they will be excluded from the human killing, will gain powers or some bullshit like that.
Kirei didn't expect anything from Angry Manjew apart from his own imput in the whole "Should something that is twisted by nature be allowed to exist?" deal. He knew it would kill him along with everyone else and was fine with that.

I'm glad to see all these anons shitting on Kiritsugu. I know /a/ if filled with Fatefags, but I'm glad we can all point out and acknolwdge what a shit character and awful person Kiritsugu is.

OP, you need to watch more fucking anime if you think Kiritsugu is badass. I bet you haven't even read the VNs, faggot.

Kiri is so fucking dead on the inside he doesn't even qualify to be an edgelord. He treats Saber like shit when she has done nothing wrong, he cheats on his wife. Cheating on his wife alone while being dead on the inside lets you know what a true piece of shit he is, as he still cares about his sex and feels the need to please it. He has dogshit ideals and is always trying to accomplish them at the expense of everyone else, to the point where killing you even if you're an innocent person will cause him no remorse.

When he rescued Shirou at the end, all he cared about was "saving himself", not Shirou.

Fuck off with your godawful taste in characters OP. I seriously suggest you re-evalute his character. No, he's not a badass either, He's a fucking faggot and I wish Saber would have decapitated him when she had the chance.

I wish he could see that his stupid pursuit led to his daughter getting her heart ripped out of her while still conscious. Fuck Kiritsugu, he damned everybody. He damned Shirou by taking away his home and original family, he damned Illyia, and he damned Saber. He damned Iri too. He damned himself. Fuck you OP.

>being immortal actually turned people into even bigger assholes?
That happens when they're the only one or part of the few who have immortality. Being one of the few with that characteristic makes you more powerful than those who don't have it.

Anyway, that's not the problem with giving people immortality. People are meant to die, that's it. Being immortal while living in a world full of mortals doesn't make any fucking sense. Everything else will eventually die off but you. Immortality while living in a world full of mortals is asking for loneliness, not necessarily from other people but from nature and matter itself.
>>
>>122151147
Just withhold judgement until there's a preview for the movies. Hopefully they will look markedly better than the TV series.
>>
>>122151207
You're missing the point.
Magic in the Nasuverse is kinda Order of Hermes esque.
For example turning something into gold would be one certain application of magic.
But for World Peace there are tons of possibilites Kerry would have to pick from.
>>
Do any of you guys fucking realize that he's supposed to be a flawed, unlikable person?
>>
>>122151339
True but with the Grail, there's one possibility to pick from and its complete destruction.
>>
>>122144877
OP: Genuine Edgy Faggot
>>
>>122151339
Yeah and he didn't think that far because he understood it as a miracle. He figured he didn't need to explain it further than "make the world not as shitty"
>>
>>122151426
To be fair it's also the only method Kerrytugu could think off.
Not that any other would have worked with the corrupted grail but still.
>>
>>122151417
He's supposed to be likeable when it comes to being "cool" and "badass" but yes, he is flawed. Fate/Zero drives the point to shit on Kerry's shitty consequentialism since he didn't even know the utility of the grail.

>>122151417
Yes. Are you surprised the character is disliked, despite being deliberately written to have unlikable characters traits?

>>122151426
He should have known better than to put all his faith in a solution he couldn't even begin to imagine beyond the possibility that it could exist. It's literally the worst gamble you could make. It's like launching into a very general direction of space and hoping you'll stumble upon something really convenient just because you imagine there will be something good in that general direction, even though you don't know what you'll find or even if you'll find anything at all, but still being dead sure you'll find exactly what you're looking for, despite not quite being certain what that is.
>>
>>122151598
Can you blame him? He's in a magic war with Alexander the Great and Cthulhu light, why is a miracle the unthinkable thing?
>>
>>122151598
Kinda. He figured the Grail could and would do anything according to his will, even if he himself could only see solutions bogged down in philosophical paradoxes and inconceivable scenarios. He thought all the myriad conundrums that sprung up from his ideas would just be ignored by the Grail.
>>
>>122144877
