Is it me or did the Fourth Holy Grail war feel more like a war

Is it me or did the Fourth Holy Grail war feel more like a war than Fate, UBW and HF? VN just feel so flat compared to the all out battles by Urobuchi. Now I see why people keep saying how nice F/SN would be if Uro wrote it.
>>
Well yeah. After all, the participants of the Fifth were too young. Everyone thought that the next war would take place 60 years later when everyone was an adult rather than 10 years.
>>
>>122605491
Well, you know, one had to be a VN with all that implies. An LN can cut out all the chaff and stuff, plus it helps that the major players are mostly vetted adult mages in their prime rather than Shirou who needs training wheels.
>>
>>122605778
>Well, you know, one had to be a VN with all that implies
That implies nothing, stop talking like you know shit
>>
>>122605821
It implies that it has to follow a single character through all the day end every single interaction as opposed to just focusing on the fighting
>>
>>122605491
>reading F/SN for the grail war.
You probably didn't enjoy the VN, especially HF, if that's all you're looking for.
>>
>>122605491

Fifth war was kind of a mess. Most of the contestants were too young and unprepared. Shirou and Kuzuki got in by accident, Rin was prepared but she's a nice girl who was acquainted to most of the participants, Shinji is useless and a joke, Sakura didn't want to fight, Kotomine didn't want the grail, Zouken was planning on skipping this round.

Illya was kind of the only one who was ready to fuck shit up.
>>
>>122605491
Fourth was written as a standard war. Fifth is a really odd one.
>>
>>122605491
Some battles in the VN are more climatic than anything in Zero, because the only really climatic battle in Zero was Kiritsugu vs. Kotomine and ultimately it was left unfinished for plot reasons.

none of the Fuyuki Grail wars could be classified as standard, they all failed for various reasons. Well maybe except for the 4th and 5th one, they're both shut down by Emiya

F/Z is about a bunch of people fooled into the entire "Holy Grail War", all meeting terrible fates.
F/SN is about uncovering the hoax that is the Holy Grail War, while uncovering the ritual that is Heaven's Feel.
>>
>>122605491
Ehh, I like the VN more. I prefer the atmosphere and its presentation. Also, I enjoyed how the whole thing feels like an uphill fight.Hollow Ataraxia is my favorite though
>>
>>122606950

Both FZ and FSN are about a bunch of people fooled into the grail war, and in both the truth is uncovered by the end by the main characters/audience.
>>
Fist fight is much better than Batcave
>>
>>122607000
really not concerning Fate/Zero

Kerry learns that the Grail is cursed, but he doesn't know by what, how it happened, why it happened. He doesn't learn the real motivations of the Three Families.
>>
>>122607000
Kiritsugu never knew shit. All he found out was that the grail was a bitch and he didn't like it.

My bad, what I was trying to say is that in both series, discovering the truth behind the grail war is not the primary objective, but rather a result of the MC's trying to fight in the war. Their goal was never uncovering the truth behind the ritual. Kerry never finds out, but the audience does.
>>
>>122605491
You don't read F/SN after read F/Z or watch any adaptation at all. It shines the most when you read the thing with absolutely no knowledge beforehand.
>>
The 5th war would've probably been more like the 4th had Bazett and Caster's initial master not gotten fucked early on.

5th war was more a psychological battle and more close combat then the 4th and in a way I like it a lot more and the conflicts are more interesting due to being more personal.
>>
>>122607209
>in both series, discovering the truth behind the grail war is not the primary objective
This is just plain wrong though. It was very much a thing in F/SN.
>>
>>122607243

When? Shirou's objective was never finding that out. Rin suspected something behind the scenes, but she didn't care because it suited her goals anyway.
>>
>>122607209
>discovering the truth behind the grail war is not the primary objective
That's only for the masters families that aren't Kariya and Tokiomi, hell you could even say Kotomine did it to learn what the Grail really was since Risei basically clued him in before since Risei was the 3rd war church mediator.
>>
>>122607000
Except Kerry never 'found out' instead he went through the whole damn thing sacrificing his waifu and friend with benefits/partner in murder and only found out something was wrong when the grail woke up and picked him as most eligable wish maker.

Ofc then it rubbed in his face how fucking stupid his dream was and Kerry's life went down the toilet.
>>
>>122607339
>That's only

Name one participant in either war whose goal was discovering the truth of the ritual.
>>
>>122607339
Addendum.
Even if you look at F/SN, Kotomine again did it to know the Grail's true power and Angra Mainyu's potential as well as Shinji.
>>
>>122605491
The fifth war was an accident. Of course it didn't feel like a war, it wasn't one. Only one of the masters actually wanted the Grail, most of the others got pulled into it because the Grail needs seven masters, regardless of whether or not who it chooses wants to fight.
>>
While we're on the topic, there is also a certain tension that lacks in Zero

I'm well aware that some of the very first confrontations in both stay night and zero result sometimes in nothing, but at least stay night never had 6 Servants in the same place resulting in one of them walking away injured and all the others fine

I can forgive it a little more for stay night since it's character-driven as well as plot-driven. Of course Kerry does have some good characterization as well, but a lot of it was lost from the light novel, and I doubt people like OP even read it. The result is that the main character feels a bit too distant to the audience for the first half of the anime. While you may call that a failure of the adaptation, it's also true in some respect of the LN, where until his backstory is explained, his utilitarianism will seem over the top
>>
>>122607432
Which is why it's no wonder a lot of Japanese watchers got disappointed by the 5th HGW.

Bazett was prepared but kotomine killed her

>>122606904
The lesser grail was just allowing for a connection to the other side. The anus in the sky is the real thing that needs to be destroyed.

Urobuchi can't depict characters like Nasu does
He doesn't love people
That's why I find F/SN to be more fulfilling experience than Zero, even if it was too long and pacing was bad, it has shitty porn, there were things that could have been done better. But it was Nasu's Fate/stay night.
I think it's insulting to say things like "I want my preffered author to rewrite the work of other author with different mindset because I didn't like it".

Everything else is fine.
>>
>>122608807
Shirou's inital reason for joining the grail war and not quitting and being bazerkah'd was to minimize casualties general and keep any masters from doing shit that would drag innocents in. That was his motivation and reason to join and participate in most of the grail war.

Saving everyone does not come up in the slightest untill the very end it's not the reason he went along with it.

Unless your refering to Kerrys ideals and his psychopathic obcession with them.
>>
>>122609140
>Saving everyone does not come up in the slightest untill the very end it's not the reason he went along with it.

Minimizing casualties and keeping masters from doing evil shit is his way of attempting to save everyone. He can't, and he knows he can't. but he is determined to try.
Kerry doesn't want to try to save everyone. He's just trying to save the most with the least amount of sacrifices.
>>
>>122609245
>Kerry doesn't want to try to save everyone. He's just trying to save the most with the least amount of sacrifices.
Well, technically he wants to end all human conflict

Kerry only joined the grail war because he wanted to use the grail for a retarded wish.

I think it was a matter of audiences. FSN was geared towards kids in high school, hence the Shirou self-insert and harem. Zero feels like it was geared towards the same audience who first read FSN but now are adults.
I thought FZ had better writing than FSN.

FSN was specifically designed as a dual-audience "game", that's why it translates so well to PG-13 in Realta Nua. Otaku street cred from TH etc just got them off the ground.

I know it's bait but I'm correcting what you said for the sake of lurkers.

The second he figured out Grail will destroy humanity, he bailed the hell out. He's a retarded idealist, but he's not a complete psychopath.
He just wanted genuine world peace. And the thing is, if Einzberns didn't screw everything up so badly in the last war with their special snowflake Avenger, he would've gotten it too.

The Real Grail as an access to the Root can basically reach the records of all of existence. So if you can just keep pumping magic into it, you can make your wish come true
>>
>>122610177
I thought you didn't need the root to get a wish

You on;y need the root to perform the Materialization of the soul.
>>
Am I the only one that watched F/Z before reading F/SN and still enjoyed both? As far as the "baaw baaw kids ;-;" goes, doesn't it make logical sense that everyone is young in F/SN if you watch F/Z first? So why the fuck would anyone who watched F/Z first for whatever reason complain about F/SN having kids in it when F/Z pretty much proves its logical? Unless you're a retard
>>
>>122610177
Kerry would have to conceive a way of how to archive world peace.
Also the wish has nothing to do with the root.
>>
>>122610158
Pretty much all the screentime is focused on the core characters and the rest get nothing.
Gil, Lancer, Rider, Assassin they probably get 30 minutes each of true screentime.
Caster and her master get nothing as actual characterization except for team rocket shit and one little scene.
Heck True Assassin who appear only in one route get better screentime and characterization than most of them which is pretty fucking weird.
Compared to other games of the genre that rubbish
>>
>>122610248
>>122610298
the definition of the Greater Grail has always been a path to the Root. Whether or not someone will go to the Root, he needs the path for his wish
>>
>>122610361
No that is wrong.
You need 6 dead servants for a wish and 7 for the root.
>>
>>122610398
Yes that is my point, but the method by which a wish is given, is still by the Grail being connected to the Root

I wish there were more fullblown Master vs Master battles in FSN. Most of the time it's Servant vs Servant with Masters standing there as Pokemon trainers.

I really liked the Rin vs Ilya addition in the anime.
>>
>>122609868
>Except
You want to argue? I'll bite
Development of Kerry and Saber it's that Urobuchi's set-up thing about rubbing into moralfags's faces what they're worth(according to Urobuchi). Avid Zerofags prefer Saber in Zero because she didn't have a moeblob side, but I don't think it ruined her anyhow in Stay night.
Kotomine's development in Zero is what we knew from HF explained to him by Gil. Is it better than his flashbacks in HF or his meaningful relationship with Shirou? While I enjoyed his appearances in Zero, his development in HF felt more emotional.
And he doesn't really serves as foil to Kiritsugu in the anime since ufotable didn't find a way to develop him like the novel does and cut a number of important scenes.
Waver's development is just tsundere growing up, I didn't even like him since he was there to make Rider look even better than he is.

That was absolute shit and directly contradicts Ilya's powerset in the VN just to produce a connection to Zero
>>
>>122610516
Yeah it was nice to give a little something to Rin because she usually does jackshit outside of that one moment per route despite being the senior mage in their team.
>>
>>122610053
Except how does he get world peace? Humanity by it's very nature is self destructive, self serving, violent, greedy and cruel to incredible degree. The only way the grail could fix that is to take away any and all negative emotions and instincts from humanity or kill em all.

Killing them all doesnt work because humanity cant be at peace because it's dead.

The other option takes away half of what makes human's 'human' in the first place so all you have left are a bunch of 'not humans' magically lobotomized to fufill Kerry's wish.

But hey if you can come up with a way to make humans stop killing raping and hurting each other emotionally and pysically on both the small and large scales without doing something so horrifically evil it makes history's greatest monsters look like saints then sure let's hear it.......

Medea is one of the strongest and most terrifying Casters around, her only flaw (and it is a crippling flaw) is that Magic Resistance is so common.

There is no standing against her if you cannot brush her spells away.
>>
>>122613057
She's literaly the weakest servant in the 5th war.
>>
>>122613122

That just notes how fucking powerful everyone else in the 5th war is, reinforcing the initial point.
>>
>>122613122
Not by raw strength because of her magic hax.
>>
>>122613189
If she had the Colchis Dragon she would be in the middle of the power ranking
>>
Because the fourth war had adult mages at their peak who were more skilled, knowledgeable and powerful. Less dumb kids like Ilya, Shirou, Rin and Shinji.

Don't get me started on how shitty and bland Stay's servants are by comparison. Rider sucks and got killed by a human. Caster is just a waifu. Assassin is stuck to one area.

Zero >>>>>>>> Stay
>>
>>122613262

Considering the power rankings are vague as fuck anyway, that would probably place her above Archer and maybe Rider.
She's not strong for her war, but she's still goddamn strong.
>>
>>122613262
I don't get how she is so weak when a lot of her spells are B rank at least and she has A rank Rain of Light.

Only Saber or Berserker can nullify any damage from most of her spells while everyone else couldn't even block B rank spells.
>>
>>122613328
>more skilled, knowledgeable and powerful

More skilled and knowledgeable yes, more powerful no. With the given exception of Kotomine and Kayneth.
Kiritsugu was a specialist, but not particularly impressive in terms of capacity. Tokiomi sucked and Ryuunosuke was a civilian psychopath. Kariya was a dying cripple. Waver is bottom-of-the-line.

Contrast Kuzuki with mountain man assassin snake style, Rin with genius prodigy skills, and Shirou whose body is made of swords.

If the other fifth war servants weren't more overpowered, she'd be rampaging.

Anon, Medea is literally weaker than Gilles and is a low teir Caster.
>>
>>122613432

We've never seen her engage someone in her Temple where she is strongest, a side effect of having Assassin guard the entrance to her Temple and nobody getting past Assassin.
>>
>>122613478

What? Medea is far more powerful than Gilles.
Gilles has a single gimmick, an endlessly regenerating tentacle god. It works against some heroes but nowhere near all of them.
>>
>>122613478
You're not even trying at this point.
>>
>>122613432

They are either too fast or/and on the same level of magic user as she is.

>>

Koha-Ace is where Nasu introduces a bunch of canon shit in a joke format. The author is someone else but he gets his shit from Nasu.
>>
>>122613897
>>122614050

In this case I'd guarantee it was just for the gag. Picking on Medea has become a running joke.
>>
>>122614131
Doubt it. Medea has been referred several times as the weakest in the 5th war, not to mention she is already low teir by Nasu since she doesn't have the ability to summon dragons. Don't get me started on the prep time it takes for her to even get going.
>>
>>122614050
Koha-Ace is as far from "canon" as you can get
It's a fucking joke-manga
>>
>>122613639
Well she can cast gravity magic fast enough to instantly freeze saber in place, fly, and teleport at will. And she has the same agility rank as Saber who can at least move fast enough to not be completely overwhelmed by Rider's speed. It's like she never learned the art of kiting those annoying martials.

Also, doesn't she prevent Rider from being able to fight in Ubw, or was that Kuzuki's assassin skill?
>>
>>122614388
It's a fucking joke manga that introduces canon shit from time to time. Are you pretending to be retarded?
>>
>>122614472
That was just Kuzuki
>>
>>122614484
What did it introduce?
>>
>>122614563
Most of the servant's other classes, for example Caster Cu and Lancer Arthuria.
>>
>>122614236
Medea is basically like a joker. She has her own servant, she has a badass master who can stand up to other servants, and she has a Noble Phantasm that lets her completely change the game.

She personally sucks in combat, but Casters tend to be more support-type servants so it's not really a surprise.
>>
>>122614698
Caster Cu existing was something that was "introduced" in the VN.
Also I don't remember Lancer!Saibah existing
>>
Why didn't Shirou dream of Saber in UBW or HF? I thought masters were supposed to share memories with their servants?
>>
>>122614808
It's in Fate
>>
>>122614698
Lancer said in the VN he could be summoned as Berserker or Caster.
>>
>>122614776
>>122614880
I believe that anon means the design for Caster Cu, which was introduced in Koha-Ace.

>>
>>122614808
Not always. From the 4th War, only Kayneth got his Servant's memories in a dream, for instance.
>>
>>122615340
King Arthur having a spear doesn't translate to Lancer!Saibah existing.
In fact what does Koha-Ace have to do with it?
>>
>>122615409
That Fate/Ace Royal game. Where it introduced the other classes for some servants.
I still don't believe Archer is capable of being a part of the Caster class but it's there.
>>
>>122614914

And guess what? Nobody considered it canon until Grand Order.
Koha Ace is not a canon source.
>>
>>122613478
>Gilles
>Stronger than anyone
He's a French knight who turned out to be batfuck crazy, hired a dude to "summon demons" for him, and dabbled in the rituals himself when he wasn't busy with hardcore kiddy fiddlin'. And the guy loved his kiddy time.

You'd be hard pressed to find a shittier candidate for Caster.

Shakespeare and Hans Christian Andersen.

His NP can result in the greatest of catastrophes if used 'correctly'. Very much a wildcard.
>>
>>122615810
Their ability as Casters was not what I was challenging, it was the fact that they even qualify for Caster in the first place. Much like Gilles, but at least he was accused of dabbling in black magic, even if the charges were probably bullshit.
>>
>>122615523
Too bad that it was actually canon huh?

It wasn't canon until Grand Order made it so.
Just like Enkidu's appearance in Strange Fake (and Strange Fake as a whole) wasn't canon until Nasu made it so.

How good is the EMIYA theme going to be?

VN version is the best one, but -time alter- is probably second place, with Prisma third then Kenji Kawai fourth.

The real Grail doesn't grant wishes by connecting to the Root, it connects to the Root to perform the Third True Magic. The lesser grail is the thing that is supposed to grant wishes, but that's just a lie made to encourage magi and Servants to participate in the war.

Gen is a hack, interesting ideas but he's piss poor at executing them however I enjoyed Zero despite hating everything Type Moon that isn't Tsukihime or Kara no Kyoukai, Zero had its moments and was alright as a prequel since it had source material to go on which Gen did wonders with the adaptation. I'd say it's decent, not great or spectacular as everyone claims but it's certainly not terrible either.

As for being mediocre Fate/Zero is just the same Gen Urobuchi drivel using the same themes of despair he always does in all of his work to make them seem less vapid than they actually are, I wonder if he legitimately believes he's creating a work of art or not, I'm really confused on that one. He reminds me way too much of Christopher Nolan and his pseudo intellectualism.

>defending F/Z
There's a reason secondaries and newfriends are more drawn to F/Z than F/SN. It has nothing to do with production, as UBW more than matches F/Z, Characters, or setting. F/Z fans think that the show is refreshing. That compared to something as generic and typical as F/SN, F/Z is far more original and interesting, free of conventional harem hijinks that F/SN is full of. It has guns, violence, gore and bloodshed. So bold and mature. What's not to love?

These things are lost on someone who's read Butch since before he was normalfag famous with dokes and shit. Someone who's read Kikoukugai and SnU and Inferno and what not realizes that F/Z wasn't original, wasn't creative, but just a rehashing of those old ideas, done worse. Meanwhile, F/SN is an amazingly significant work in hindsight. Compared to the eroge of the 90s, it was one of the first to try and incorporate a dense mythology along with dating sim elements, and to shift the emphasis to the plot from the characters. It was not generic, but archetypal, spawning many imitators, which is why there are so many similar Eroge. In addition, though F/SN is campy and sometimes has heavy shifts in tone, it spends more time developing its characters than F/Z, and doesn't jam in unnecessary drama and gore where it isn't needed. Ryuunosuke's character was literally all shock factor, and Kotomine's motivations in F/Z are confusing at best, Contrived at worst. Saber had virtually no character outside of serving kerry- few of the servants did.

That's ultimately why so many secondaries prefer F/Z. F/Z fags see it as a unique, creative show with a dark twist, compared to the generic crap that is F/SN. F/SN fags see F/SN as a genre defining work, F/Z as a shitty grimdark cashgrab. It's all a matter of perspective, lack of knowledge by the secondaries, and a little bit of shit taste.

Gotta read up on those potential match-ups

> Archer vs. Assassin
>If it's a straight out death match, then Archer will win. But Assassin is an oddity that fights under different battle conditions from the other Servants. While many Servants are offensive, Assassin is defensive. At a Servant-killing battlefield like Ryuudouji and with Caster's anti-sorcery defensive barrier, sorcery and Noble Phantasm power is decreased significantly. As a result, if it's not a powerful Noble Phantasm, then he won't take a fatal wound. Which means that the battle between the two is clearly swordsmanship. With Archer having his sniping sealed off to him due to the terrain effect, could Archer actually lose...?

>Archer vs Rider
>If you think about it, Archer will win, but at long range, Rider would be? Just like that question, their compatibility is not very good. Since both aren't fixated on the methods of winning, they'd definitely both choose a low-risk and high-return type of warfare.
>Even if Archer takes out a Saber-class holy sword, he doesn't have enough Prana to draw on to maximize it, so it'd be hard to for him to attack Bellerophon. What determines victory or defeat is whether Aias on its own would be enough to block Bellerophon perhaps...?

>Assassin vs True Assassin
>If it's just Servant vs Servant, then without complaint, True Assassin would have the better chance of victory. Right, Kojirou doesn't have any means of breaking through Zabaniya. But there's more to it. The problem of Zabaniya is that it's not immediate death. If a normal heart gets destroyed by it, then the person dies immediately but the opponents are Servants. And especially against Kojirou, who has a strong spirit alignment, even if his heart is destroyed he still will have some fighting power left in him. Right in the interval after TA uses his Noble Phantasm, Assassin could close the gap and use Tsubame Gaeshi. Which means....it would be a draw since both of them would end up dead...?

Lancer does A LOT of scouting. Instead we only see him versus Archer, and him building up the hype to die.
Fake Assassin does nothing, so thats fine.
Rider does do little man than setting up her Blood Fort.

Kuzuki vs Caster
Nasu-san CHECK!
Welcome to the beginning of the unorthodox rumble series! The end of the ugly battle of the married couple.....yeah well, just as the adage goes about the loser being the one who falls for the other first, it'd end with Caster being the cause of her own defeat no matter what! You can do it, wakaokusama! ....would be the punchline I started off with, but if both were really serious it wouldn't even be a "fight". Kuzuki, who'd kill the opponent instantly before being noticed, and Caster, who has overwhelming firepower to annihilate the enemy with once the battle starts. Basically, whoever gets the first hit wins without question, would be the "conditional battle".

Rin vs Kotomine
Nasu-san CHECK!
Ah. Rin has the better specs, but 80% of the time, Kotomine would win. It's not easy for humans to conquer trauma printed into them and what this fraud of a priest excels at is opening up the trauma of the enemy.
Since Rin has the goof-up girl trait, she has a lot of traumatic experiences, and having these poked at would make her unable to take advantage of her true potential.... Of course, even if they didn't know each other, Rin would still have a hard time. The executor side of Kotomine, a combat expert with over 10 years of experiences in killing magi, would be the counter of Rin's talents.

Taiga vs Kuzuki

Strictly speaking, the Shadow killed him. Lancer vs True Assassin without the Shadow would probably always result in Lancer's victory. At WORST a draw, where he gets Zabaniya'd but kills Assassin anyway because of Battle Continuation.
>>
>>122621162
Gae Bolg thrown version.

Not PERFECT but we know Noble Phantasms can mitigate damage in particular circumstances, see Rho Aias and Bellerophon vs Excalibur.
>>
>>122621162
Lancer's final rune can block any greater phantasm, any normal greater phantasm at least, unless its something completely outside of the system like Shadow that just eats through paper like its water.
>>
>>122612138
Archer. Female MC. Only play the game once for the "story" and never again, because the battle system is atrocious.

>>122621198
That would screw with the structure of the story though. FSN honestly reads more like a mystery at times, with Shirou and the gang trying to figure out what the other masters are doing.

If you're not playing through the game three times, once for each servant, and at least going down each path in the game, also to face the final secret boss, you're doing it entirely wrong.

The story isn't the draw here, it's the characters.

If you're not seeing each servant, seeing the other route servants, getting to know each playable servant, fighting Ryougi, you're not really seeing shit here. Battle system is love it or hate it, the people that hate it though are outspoken as shit.
>>
>>122621343
Stats-wise Waver was pretty good, and he was also the only Master to find Caster's lair. His Command Spell boost also made Rider pretty fucking strong against Gil not that it worked but hey
>>
>>122621382
There's a lot of reasonable masters

Leo, other Rin, Rani, Julius, Hakuno, etc.

Julius was one of the few masters so competent, that his servant had to be the one that fucked him up instead.

Shinji(Extra) was competent in a sense, too childish though, and he thought it was all a game. If he was taking it seriously he might have gotten somewhere. If he had survived past the first week, it would be pretty certain he'd serious up decently, in the same way Hakuno did perhaps.

He starts off the VN by almost instant gibbing Archer, then tries to instant gib Saber because Kotomine knows she is no fun.
If he wasn't forced to retreat out, he would have killer her at that spot.
He holds off Gil for 12 hours, while being unable to attack.

>Jinako :: Shinji…?

>Shinji :: I know. At least that people hate me on PJ. But if you don’t make a persona like you’ll just be boring and people will ignore you. No matter how good your records are. My parents were ruined nobility, see. They bought superior genetic material from the Western European plutocrats and designed me. After that I was given a room and just had self-study everyday. What mom and dad wanted wasn’t a son, it was a superior successor. It’s fine though. I can appreciate the irony. I mean, that’s all I have to be proud of. Superiority. Setting records. To teach a lesson to those morons whose faces I don’t even know. I wanted to set records, see. Records no one would ever beat. As proof that I was there. Now things have come to this I finally realized, but that was my wish. So — I wanted to participate in the Holy Grail War, and if I could win it, then I wouldn’t have needed anything more. Even without the “Grail” prize, all I wanted was to leave a record saying “I was here.” Even if it’s the web, where everything is vague, people don’t connect, and things disappear quickly, the name of the winner of the Holy Grail War would persist as long as the internet itself.

That's just both sisters riffing on each other in that scene; Sakura who doesn't have much of an advantage against her sister in any category or is constantly shifting behind, he'll brag a bit about the one or two things she does have like a sister does when she can finally get a leg up.

So she talks about how her breasts are bigger after Rin talked about how Sakura would probably look weightier in her swimsuit or something, since the joke with Sakura is that she's the one that worries about her weight. I forget worth crap but I'm pretty sure it was like that.

So anyway, Sakura will boast to feel good about her one or two advantages in the one situation when it helps as they're all talking about how they look best in their swimsuit, and then both sisters are shamed by the Homuncules as they both realize how large the world is.

It's like that One Day doujinshi, you don't get it at all if you think the joke is "Rin is flat".

I've read through most of it, shit is good, some people have said from a writings perspective it could be his best work yet, but if you were hoping for the second coming of Jesus then this isn't it.

Even "if" this was one of his best stories, depending on your personality and how hype effects you, if you put too much value in the story and it wasn't mind-blowing from the first step, you'll think it sucked because it was hyped too much.

It's like, 8/10, maybe 8.5, had some good stuff and good themes in there. Playing through with Gilgamesh is fun for sure, definitely worth it for that.

It's like when Hollow Ataraxia finally came out, and I guess we didn't care too much compared to all the build up. I mean Ataraxia was still good, not perfect but good, but man that was a lot of build up.

I don't get the impression he does. He seems legitimately surprised that they keep turning out so popular. I think he knows he's basically just reusing the same basic despair porn tone and the drawn out and overemphasized themes basic utilitarianism versus hedonism in terms of morality and trying to accomplish a goal. The latter becomes especially noticeable with each passing work and looks like it's going to come into play again with Gunslinger Stratos.

>In 2115, the country known formerly as Japan has been split into two parallel worlds: the Frontier S (Stratos) (フロンティアS(ストラトス) Furontia S (sutoratosu)?) and the 17th Far East Imperial City Management District (第十七極東帝都管理区 Dai jū nana Kyokutō no teikoku kanri-ku?). Frontier S is an outlaw universe in which freedom runs rampant, while the 17th Far East Imperial City Management District is a totalitarian universe completely bereft of freedom and is under constant surveillance. When the two universes is starting to fuse into one, the government of each worlds initiates the Operation Stratos (オペレーション・ストラトス Operēshon sutoratosu?), a world-scale protocol wherein a handpicked group of gunslingers, mercenaries, and special individuals, each from the two universes, will be sent in the year 2015 to alter the past by eliminating the other side until only one group survives, erasing a parallel universe in the process.

Every time Gen. And what's worse people are going to think it's a totally fresh concept from him cause it's been re-skinned once again. First it was done in anime with Magical girls, then with the Fate franchise, then with "cyberpunk", then with mecha for a bit and now it just looks like it's being done with generic Chuuni action game setups.

Hype looks to be the key here. It's pretty fun and fairly interesting stuff but the sheer fanaticism surrounding it baffles me unless you just bring it down to hype and really clever marketing.

Because deep down, Uro is a good writer. Regardless of how shitty his fetish and ideas are.
On the top of that, nobody outside of Guro Hentai wants to write about suffering. And Suffering a lot better writing tool than Drama, since suffering is a end to a mean, not a infinite delay.

>>122623500
Nasu or Takeuchi originaly approached Urobuchi to write an Eclipse for Kirei vs. Kerry.
Urobuchi than asked whether he could write the entire 4th war

>>122623500
But then we wouldn't have known what Saber, Gil and Kotomine were exactly doing last war, they're also essential in the fifth war not like nobodies in the 3rd.

All of those juicy facts were explained in FSN.

Both Gil and Saber were finalists.

Gil and Kirei were showered with Grail mud
Kirei killed Rin's dad

I don't really see how the 4th war is anymore a war than the 5th one. Both have masters planning things. Both have stupid masters who do stupid things. Both have servants that aren't killed by the protagonist team. I just don't see it.

As long as she's not a certain sect, it's fine to get married.

She might have to stop being a Nun to get married, but that's the honest way to go about it if that's how it goes. Even Joan here wanted to be a normal girl and find happiness in a normal way, but her country needed her, so for the time being she renounced herself and served her Lord in full.

Once the war is over, they could go back to just being people once more. Depends on your particular sect for the most part. It's only one certain type that can't get married. Nuns kind of renounce their humanity or their love lives to serve God in full typically, kind of like monks, but Nasuverse clearly works on different rules, and it's a lot less strict than it was at one point.
