>>138658367
>anime original
One problem I had with it was that it was too faithful to the original adaptation, which was predominantly geared to appeal to 15 year olds. I would have really preferred if they'd downplayed all that shit as much as possible, and kept the tone as close to F/Z as they could.

>less hilariously awkward highschool angst moments
>No edgy loli Illya. Make her an adult.
>Downplay the Shirou x Rin teen tsundere romance tension; it detracts from the story and setting

The way they broached the Shriou-Archer conflict was just, in the pre credits opening to one of the earlier episodes, they had Shirou just suddenly come out of the blue and inexplicably say "I know you hate me." Riveting.
>>
>>138658398
>More music from the VN everywhere

Rider's theme was pretty neat, I have to say. It stuck out and contrasted with the rest of the OST in a nice way, and gave her scenes this edgy, dangerous feeling.

F/0 was just more exciting. It was harder to take the plot of FSN seriously when it had to dance around the contradictions related to a highschool social life also taking place over the course of the war. I know that's old hat here, but that's my personal opinion.

It's just easier to get immersed in a story when the characters respond to situations in a consistent, relatively logical way. I.E. it's supposed to be this hardcore, high stakes fight to the death, but Rin's obvious, adolescent crush is given as much or more significance than allegedly life or death circumstances?

Go back in time and make a quality VN instead of an eroge aimed at 14 year olds to get them to fap to it.

Down play the powerlevels aspect as well since Fate isn't DBZ. Focus on characters qualities and motivations instead of just having an overarching theme for characters filled with battle and reiteration of each character's theme - which would fix a lot of flaws in one dimensional characters like Shirou/RedMan.

Actually make the story have some continuity - hidden magical battle for a, supposedly, all powerful item where the contestants kill each other and then go to school the next day like nothing happened with the explanation of "it's just magic bro relax."

UBW was 100% set to fail with the source it had to work with from the beginning. Anyone who expected more than what they got were far too nostalgic for what they already knew was going to happen.

>>
>>138658873
>UBW was 100% set to fail with the source it had to work with from the beginning

I agree. It can't be two things at once, and it tried to be.

In my opinion, we've already had enough highschool FSN adaptations. They should have taken a chance, and continued with the general tone that had been established in F/Z. They should have done a kind of reboot of the story. And this actually could have been quite interesting to do, from the angle of expounding on Rin's unique perspective on life as a result of her upbringing, where the show could have explored more why it is that she, an 18 year old girl, is able to cope with situations like this. And, by the same token, but distinctly, how Shirou is able to handle it all psychologically, because of his background. Distinguishing them, in that way, from what one would expect from highschoolers in such a situation, could be an interesting focus for their characterization, and could have remained tonally consistent with the remaining circumstances of the story. Like, it could start with them being portrayed as "more or less normal highschoolers," and then, as the story progressed, begin demonstrating that "No, they are really not normal people."

But instead, that aspect of their character (especially Rin) was kind of paraded around here and there, and, like you mentioned, never really took both feet off the flucking highschool teenager context. Rin's tsundere scenes were groan inducing.

By fleshing out Shirou. Preferably without 5+ hours of internal dialogue. Which is nearly impossible since you are supposed to be able to be Shirou and so am I. Telling the story from the RedMan's perspective as he regained his forgotten memories might have been interesting enough then swapping to Shirou later on would've been refreshing, but wouldn't work within the franchise.

Which is the main problem: the source is flawed from the beginning and it won't change at this point. Fixating on minor points like character flaws will not change the fact that the all the VN stories aged terribly and would not get an adaptation, but the name on the box allows it to slog on.

The 4th and 5th Holy Grail war are entirely different wars and the tone of each series reflects that.

In what way? I think UBW has plenty of fodder for a very interesting story. All Shirou's BS, and then Archer. Good stuff. It's just a matter of how it's told. It's like if you just took out all the teenage bullshit, it could be a great story.

Not in the VN or the anime. The tone in FSN rather contradicts itself, where Zero is more consistent. The difference is that FSN is has poorer writing slash more pandering. That's not a "thematic style," in my eyes. My apologies, but you sound like a triggered fanboy desu.

Something had to stay after the eroge was cut. This was all that was left that wasn't a shounen battle scene, or cooking. So it became the foundation for the story, highschool selfinsert powerfantasy with a shallow main character.

Some of the mystery and behind the scenes scheming was interesting, but then you hit the apex of the plot then suddenly the RedMan is the enemy. Then Kotomine is the enemy for a bit then dies off easily compared to the absolute monster he is supposed to be. Running out of ideas, Gilgamesh shows up fully powered and dies to an underpowered Shirou because it's a part of his character to underestimate everyone since Gilgamesh knows he is the greatest being ever. I don't know how Nasu managed to shoehorn all that in there, not even connect the dots and have people eat it up as being amazing. Boggles my mind.

I don't think ufo is to blame. They took the drivel Nasu spilled out and turned it into something passable without the cornerstone of the Fate series being present at all: the eroge.

I read it like a year and a half ago, and was bored as a board through most of it.

Not anon, but in my opinion the ending of UBW came across as way too shouneny in that regard. The dots were connected, I guess, but it was badly done. There were these handful of villains that were hanging around from the larger story, and after the main conflict in the plot was resolved, they were all just knocked down like dominoes in an obvious, convenient sequence of their powerlevel.

After all that shit about servants being "super dangerous," this little kid beats everybody and their dog "just cuz." I understand there was the magic-architectural explanation behind it, but it felt really corny and unbelievable.
>>
>>138659908
Are you for real? UBW had much better animation than Zero. You can see it right of the bat by comparing the first few episodes. UBW's prologues had some cuts with good character animation(Mitsuru Obunai's scene with Rin waking up in ep 0) and then there was Masayuki Kunihiro's fantastic Archer vs Lancer. F/Z's Saber vs Lancer was the first real animation highlight, with Kunihiro and Nozomu Abe doing the best action bits, but frankly their output in UBW is superior in both quality and quantity.

Yea, it wasn't great, but it was just limited to him, so it was more palatable as a thematic style imo. Contrastingly, in SN, CG is often used for entire backgrounds, and is extremely obvious.

Putting CG aside, the action scenes also often looked quite cheap and stick figurey. I just don't remember noticing that with Zero. Although, now that I mention it, the scenes with Iri and Saber in the shed did look like crap, I remember noticing that on my second or third rewatching.

Wow what a surprise that it doesn't contain the eroge. But anyone who is invested enough in the series to know about the VN knows what it is. More than likely played it as it was originally intended as an eroge and fapped their 15 year old arms off after being immersed in powerfantasy.

Friend is gushing over unlimited bladeworks right now, pretty much forcing me to watch it, is that one the best or should i watch something else later?

For the optimal experience, watch Boku no Pico or Fate/Zero first.

>COORU team

I about dropped F/Z because of this. Why they did that stupid bullshit, instead of more Lancelot/Saber and Diarmuid backstory, is beyond me. I don't know what they were thinking.

Waver/Rider was cool. It got too gimmicky for me, at points, and I would have preferred if they had taken it a little more seriously, but mostly that was a highpoint of the series. Just awesome.

Prisma.

The facts are right in front of you, just hit up sakugabooru and compare the clips from Zero and UBW. The latter's action scenes are longer and have more complex motion, not to mention it has a larger amount of entries, meaning there are more notable scenes worth cataloging on the site. Also, Nozomu Abe, who is a good animator, worked on more UBW episodes than Zero.

>try actually consuming the material the conversation is about.

I can rewatch Fate/Zero again whenever. I'm funposting on /a/ right now, though, about my opinions about FSN, which I finished recently. So instead of getting upset and just bitching in the thread, why not contribute to the discussion. Or, if you don't like it, find another discussion to contribute to on the board.

You know, now that you mention that, I think that is very true. Story trumps all, though.

Seen boku no pico already, lacked a bit in action scenes and could not focus enough on it because i spent more time fapping.

Will watch zero first then.

I'm not quite sure what you're trying to point out in the picture, Berserker's design? I thought he was drawn quite well, you can't see it easily in the final product, there's a lot of shading and muscle detail in the raw key animation.

It was a joke response to put BnP and F/Z on the same level.

If you're serious, UBW should be watched first because its story was released first. F/Z is less fun if you don't know the story of UBW, and UBW is less fun if you know the story of F/Z (see: this faggot >>138660408 )

>>138660460

Ah ok, thanks for the honest answer. I never got into the fate vn's so i did not have any clue about the timelines.

>F/Z is less fun if you don't know the story of UBW
I got this backwards. F/Z is less fun /unless/ you don't know the story of UBW.

Damn, this place is filled with self privileged man children
Stop crying over this and just be glad they gave you something
>>
>>138660460
But this is still wrong, anybody that is not interested in reading the VN is casual enough to not care about what Zero ruins.
Watching UBW first is the most half-assed thing you can do, since you still know knothing about what Zero spoils and you still won't get the ending of Zero.

desu, my gripes on it weren't even how they portrayed Shirou, but just those unnecessary additions.

Like: why did Archer have to use UBW in his fight against Shirou? Not only is this unnecessary, but shouldn'T even be possible due to his low mana reserve.
Also the fight was meant to be simplistic. Its main thing shouldn't have been how much CGI you could stuff in, how many swords Archer and Shirou can throw at each other, but just Shirou relentlessly denying Archer and vice versa.

>one zerofag singlehandedly ruins a TM thread
It isn't even his fault. It's /a/'s fault for responding to this retard.

The original story is almost laughably bad. It couldn't have been better.
One suggestion though would be to stop trying to do both the dumb shonen manga powerlevel hero story and the serious grim reflexive and slow atmosphere at the same time.
But still. Shirou is a really weak main character, his story is literally dark flame mastah delusion tier and the dialogue is nasu nasu nasu. I guess you could have articulated the emiya arc a little bit better, but it still remains being a really weak story.

Sounds like you just want Fate/other night's Heaven's Feel and not Fate/stay night's Saber & Rin routes
>>
>>138659399
Take Fate, expand/rewrite some of the scenario and animate the rest of the game in order (Saber -> Rin -> Sakura)

explain what makes F/SN bad? it's the best written thing Japan has produced that isn't Haruki Murakami

Honestly, Stay Night's source material is pretty bad. It's not terrible by any means, but the concept of Stay Night works much, much better as a VN than it does as an anime. Where each of the VN routes are parts of 1 whole, the anime adaptations are supposedly standalone and it just does not work very well.

ufotable should have done their own route and took elements from each route to do it, like DEEN tried but failed to do.

I don't know if even that will fix it, and Stay Night will always have plot holes/asspulls but UBW just felt empty. Great to look at but there were too many episodes and it just never really seemed to click into place. It just went from one part to the next, which is ok with a VN because you have the eternal monologue's which tell the story (given that you're seeing it from one character's perspective) but with the anime it's a bit different.

I think, overall, the main issue with UBW especially was that ufotable tried too hard to keep it to the source material and it ended up feeling like you were watching a visual novel rather than an anime, and I know why they did this but I just wish they would have taken more risks. In the end, they didn't please the hardcore fans because of some changes they made, and they didn't please other fans because they tried so hard to please the hardcore ones.
