Why is it possible to save wormslut but not Illya?
She's pretty much destined to die a year after, though. I don't consider that saving her.
>better character development
Sakura is the third most developed character in F/SN right behind Shirou/Archer and Kotomine. Ilya might well come in 4th or 5th place, but Rider is just an edgier and sluttier Saber with an ancient Greek version of Sakura's backstory.
It comes out a bit twisted, but I don't think "torture" is her true goal. Especially if circumstances were a little different.

>it comes out a bit twisted
At least we've got Prisma Illya, she can enjoy an ordinary life other girls would have
I really appreciate that, my dear daughter
It's Fate, Avalon is back in Wales with Seibah.
Also it doesn't really work as well without Saber around to power it.
I'm sorry, anon, but I couldn't think of a nicer way to tell you.
She isnt developed at all, really.
Ilya is pretty well developed from Fate and HF. She was a bit of a non-entity in UBW but had that decent scene with Berserker after she gets Gate of Babylowned.
Sakura is a non-entity in Fate and UBW and then really only serves as a plot-devise to enable the third aspect of Shirou's development.
Sakura is a bootleg Grail. She wasn't constructed to be optimized for anything.
Ilya (and all homunculi) are crafted with a specific goal in mind. Where a human is simply born, a homunculus is created to do X. Ilya is created to be a Master in the 5th Holy Grail war, and also to be the Lesser Grail, so she's optimized to do that.
To put it another way: Ilya is deliberately minmaxed so she's great at the one thing other people want her to do, but because of that, she gets the short end of the stick elsewhere.
Sakura is a bootleg version of Ilya, but she's not specially optimized to that role, so she has something left over to save.
By the way. Miyuverse's Holy Grail War just started.
There are no Einzbern, no Rin and no Servants.
But a lot Matous and Class cards which can masters themself turn into Heroic Spirits.
Also Shirou went full Heaven's Feel mindset.
Confirmed Masters - Cards:
>Shirou - Archer card (EMIYA)
>Sakura - Berserker (Lancelot)
5 more masters remains.
>singlehandedly saved the VN
>no happy ending
Fuck you Nasu. Don't give me that bullshit with the spinoff. I love it, but its not Ilya.
I wouldn't want to have to deal with her dying again though
Only way how you can make Sakura really likeable is give her into combo with Rider.
