I actually agree with him, who cares about Shirou and Rin's love life ?
I'll take explosions above the shitty story anytime. I even dare say every single minute without Gilgamesh strutting on the screen is a waste of time.

You know, people say Fate is just Naruto with sex, but then you get guys like this who moan on when it does stuff other than action.

You got more of Shirou's characterization, his relationship with Rin advanced, they teamed up with Lancer, info on Gil was given, particularly adding hints to his bigger plans, some nice stuff with Kuzuki and Archer that hinted at the larger message of the show, stuff with the pendant and Shirou was talked about, and it all wrapped up with setting up for a ton of action next episode.

As long as they don't throw another flashback/exposition smack dab in the middle of it.

You have to have some falling action and time for characters to act on things in a story, fucking adhd child.

If you want characters that you don't know teleporting from battle to battle, try DEEN's UBW film. It's more your style.
>>
>>124587218
Lots of stuff actually happened though. You wouldn't notice that though since all you care about are fights.

Could it be that they're running out of budget now?
>>
>>124587078
It has nothing to do with whether I like action better than sex or romance (I don't), it's merely that action scenes are not cringeworthy compared to romance scenes. Because no matter how shitty the original material, actions scenes can be good, unlike romance.

The fucking sign of a secondary.

Sorry to break it to you, but UBW is pretty much entirely Shirou's story. There's no way you're going to enjoy this as a whole if you don't care about him.

>>124587345
Why would you watch a show if you hate the MC this far in? Just watch fight clips on youtube.

fights are expensive to animate. note how a good chunk of the gilgamesh vs. bersakah fight was actually cutting away from the action to shirou and rin.
>>
>>124587528
Well that's a pretty minor part of the story, Kotomine is barely in this route. There's going to be a lot of ruminating on Shirou's existence.

Because she is a passive aggressive cunt.

>>124587549
Considering a lot of HF was about Shirou an Sakura's relationship and most of Rin and Shirou's romance scenes in UBW are just them getting flustered at eachother. That isn't much of a surprise

So that leaves only one third of a long ass piece of writing as generally enjoyed, which you have to slog through one of the aforementioned bad thirds to get to, and yet this is massively popular?
>>
>>124587910
Rin and Shirou actually go through a lot of development. She's the only heroine who technically starts off as his enemy, and through the story they develop from that, to allies, to friends, to in a relationship. Hell, by the end they're planning their future together in London.

Shirou can spam swords too, and I think inside UBW they are even faster than GOB

>I make an opinion based on opinions without trying out the material in question.
>>
>>124587263
I found the conversation between Shirou and Rin and the next one with Lancer really artificial but it's an issue that I have also with the VN, the problem with the first it's that ther's really nothing fucking wrong with how Shirou acted in that situation, who in his right mind wouldn't try to protect a child? One would say that she tried to kill him but Shirou had already forgived that, and then thers the conversation with Lancer
who makes no sense, first he's shaken with Illya's death and then, as if nothing had happened, he talks about don't touching his woman?
>>
>>124588067
but he can't spam swords the way gil does.
>>
>>124588060
You are dumb. They found out who Gil was, teamed up with Lancer, and started an attack on Caster.
>>
>>124588060
Yes there was.
>>
>>124587981
You're stupid, HF is very popular and Sakura has a ton of fans.

Fate isn't even a bad route, it just suffers because it's the first one and sets the framework for the other two to be as good as they are.
>>
>>124588086
Rin told him to be more selfish. He reacts by making sure another man doesn't take his woman.
>>
>>124587981
>>main material is a long as fuck VN
>>but the girls are two that nobody likes and a twintail tsundere
>>first route is generally agreed to be shit

You see, they all actually like all of those things, but they like to complain more

Most sakurafags have proven to have better reading comprehension by being able to understand her character beyond her being a non-virgin.
