>There are some people who liked Kiritsugu more than Shirou.
Can someone explain me why ? Is it because they did not read the VN ?
Fuck the edge Lord Kerry right lads ?
Archer would cry like a bitch and call him daddy if they met.
>Finds out Daddy Kerry is the one who burned his City to ashes.
>Passed the torch to him to be a hero(guilt tripping him saying he can now rest in peace on their final talk)
>Finds out he abused Saber and used her as a mere tool
Did Shirou ever cried ? I forgot its been a long time but I dont even remember crying once in the series. I do know Kerry cried 3 times in the whole series(Boat scene +Ilya+final episode)
The fact that he pretends to be strong when in fact he's a weak crybaby, and he's supposed to be some legendary magus killer. That juxtaposition is the best.
I also like that he has almost 3 times as much fanart as Shirou.
Kiritsugu had a huge plot armor: Avalon.
>knew how to get shit done
In a scummy way, sure. Just like how a cheating goldigging wife knows how to manipulate her husband to get what she wants.
Why? He's approach to following his ideal simply from an intrinsic value is the best way to live one's life. Or else you're just going to fall into existentialist problems like Kiritsugu.
Or you can just go the kierkegaard way and become Christian.
Fate is overrated garbage and has the worst fanbase on /a/. The VN is just as bad as the anime, superfluous as fuck and filled to the brim with poorly paced exposition. Nasu a hack. HACK!
The only good part of Saber in Zero was Kerry neglecting her
its just /a/ being edgy fags. Shirou is pretty bad ass. how can you not like archer?
Kerry was too simplistically written. The way in which he saw the world was too black and white - think of his 2 ships analogy.
He's supposed to be this morally ambiguous man who's seen too much shit, that the only thing he found to fix the world for the better was the GW.
That's all great, but it was ultimately written in a rather juvenile way, that his character lacks any proper build-up to justify the type of man he became.
In Shirou's case, he isn't particularly well-written either, but he's written in a more heroic fashion, thus people cut his character a lot more slack than they do with Kerry.
I've read the shit out of the VN but I still prefer Kerry by a large margin. He's much better written, fleshed out and interesting, at least to me.
