I was under the impression that only 14 year old's and neckbeards who fantasize about Rin liked Stay Night more than Zero.

Don't know how anyone can claim SN is better than Zero. The protagonist in SN is one of the most cringe worthy insert characters I've ever seen.

ZERO is an avant-garde masterwork packed with thought-provoking conflict, philosophy, and adult mature characters.

Agree. Kiritsugu was a badass and mature character, while Shirou was the geneirc nice guy shounen protagonist harem master.

In the Zero we saw the conflicts of adult, intelligent characters. While Stay Night followed cooking dinner and dates with immature teenagers.

That's a legitimate criticism though. People tend to dislike obsessive moralfaggotry and Shirou is the epitome of that.
Kiritsugu was annoying as fuck as well.

And how is thinking something is mediocre bad? I thought UBW was pretty mediocre (the VN, dropped the anime).

Unless you are strictly talking about secondaries who prefer Zero, those don't make sense.

Yeah, a story that tackles essential nature of heroic ideals; pragmatism and selfless actions for selfish reasons. Emotions and logic. Facades in society. Consequences of our actions. Regret. Nihilism. Meaning of existence and sense of self. Meaning of choice. Perception of people. Perspectives on good/evil. Consent and fate. Societal values and morality. And a shitload of other things.

Brilliant argument my secondary friend.

Shirou has complete disregard to societal rules or even sense of morality. His "morality" is only governed by his ideal - "making people feel good would make me feel happy so making them feel bad is wrong". Did you even read the "bye, Shinji" ending?

Shirou admits that he WANTS people to be in danger so there exists something for him to save others from.

He is not driven by morality or conscience. The clear parallels with Kirei only reinforces this.

Maybe if you're a secondary.

While Shirou is broken and insane with a limited range of emotion, he is also sarcastic and inventive. His relationship with Rin is all about him jabbing at her facades and getting her to open up from her hermit-like existence.

Shiroufags and Shinjifags are the same kind of people, in my opinion.
Both are characters who are commonly referred to as obnoxious, but they both have really die hard autists who see themselves in each character and take any insult (which are common with these sort of characters) to the character as an insult to themselves.
i.e. projecting
Evafags are a lot worse though desu

Just because people self-insert a a character, doesn't mean the character is a self-insert character. I go off-roading in a 2000 Buick Le Sabre, that doesn't make it an off-road vehicle.

I will admit that Zero was by no means a terrible anime. It wasn't great but watchable, although it was a LOT of wasted potential. And all the pseudo epic crap made it difficult to take it any way seriously. It takes itself seriously, that much is clear, but if you can really take it seriously then you gotta have some kind of mental deficiency. Zero is probably the best thing in the world if you are 15. It has just the right amount of edge and chuuni delusion fuel that you cannot help but like it. After all, it's a bunch of "badass" heroes from different legends fighting each other.

F/SN doesn't take itself seriously and just for that, I have way less trouble actually enjoying it. It's a fun battle shounen in an interesting setting.

That said:

>Emiya Kiritsugu’s right hand continued its work of writing while his left hand mechanically shoveled his nutrition – hamburgers from a fast food restaurant he bought while investigating – into his mouth. For nine years, Emiya Kiritsugu had eaten at the table of the Einsberns, who were merely a hair removed from royalty themselves. He had grown tired of the cuisine. This fast food, filled with the sense of slaughter, was more suited to his tastes. Being able to eat without interrupting one’s words or thoughts was better than anything, no matter how you looked at it.

F/SN never brings up real philosophical and literature references, and the mood and style of the reflective scenes is way lighter.
Zero does have those, since Urobuchi loves sneaking references to other writer's work, sometimes in a less than subtle way.

It just seems to me that you have never read the VN. The Fate route's church basement scene, trapped in all the world's evil, UBW's blood fort, or pretty much anything in HF are a lot darker than what you see in F/Z.

I don't remember any particular literary references in F/Z. Madoka and PP are chock full of them though

Hol' up. This has to be bait. I don't have an image unfortunately. But what you're saying is that the people who are responsible for the low quality of discussion in these threads are F/SN fans and secondaries.

So, in order to be a valuable contributor to the discussion, you have to like Zero and pretend F/SN doesn't exist but at the same time you have to have read the VN because otherwise you would be considered a secondary.

This is the non-sense I expect of your typical (mentally) 15-year-old Zero fans.

It just seems to me that you have never read the LN.
Let's make it short, if you can post a single literary or philosophical reference in the VN, I'll admit defeat. Claiming it's "darker" or "deeper" it's useless since that's subjective. I've read both novels and SN's mood is not as dark as Zero's to me, and before you say anything, I'm not equating dark to good.
>>
>>133137504
Nasu is just as "edgy" as Urobuchi, there's just more breaks with other fluff. There is no significant difference between Zero and the VN taken as a whole, it's mostly the contrast in the perspectives of the characters that the story is told through.

To be fair, I only think it works if you turn of the H-scenes, otherwise Shirou's confessions on the bridge come across as stupid.

But I like it, it's functional as star crossed lover stories go, and it's interesting in the sense that Saber comes to represent both Shirou's ideals, and his father. The fact that Shirou thinks Saber, who represents his ideals, lead an unappreciated life, sets up core theme of UBW nicely. It just kinda works for me.

Fate/Stay Night is a gateway eroge of the worst kind. It's a bad game, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn't very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive powerlevel faggotry and DARKNESS. The normal anon can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the VN itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.

However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shit of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable underageb& faggots who engage in every kind of faggotry both online and in the real world. The superpowered characters all trying their hardest to look cool, the Noble Phantasms, ridiculous, color-coded clothes, the whole Servant faggotry and everything about the Fate/Stay Night world fuels their escapist fantasies, while the pity-party character backgrounds, emphasis on heroism, and overall chuuni tone of the VN makes it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average preteen and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes little kiddies and underageb& retards eat this shit right the fuck up.

Fate/Stay Night is basically THE franchise to attract the most hated fanbase known to /a/, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every anon to troll the fuck out of this franchise and everyone who likes it, and ensure that no Fate/Stay Night threads ever encourage the newfriends to show their faces here.

I love it when people take old copypastas and replace a few words.
