So i was playing the VN and dropped it 2 routes in as it sucked ass and fap bait scenes were constantly shoved in.

Watched Fate Zero and this..
It's like the guy decided to actually make use of the damn premise this time without the corny shit you'd see in the VN.

How must it feel to have a side story work far more intresting than your main work?
>>
>>144141505
>dropped it two routes in

Actually you didn't play the VN and only watched Fate/Zero, but then UBW came and you were super excited but it didn't live up to your expectations so you assumed that the VN was the same way. Then you watched a YouTube montage of the worst scenes from FSN 2006, and that was enough to confirm to yourself that the VN is shit, since you had "played" two routes. The only reason you're making this thread is because you feel guilty about not playing the VN, and you heard HF was good, so you want us to get you hyped for the movies since you lost that hype with UBW.

How accurate am I?

There is no possible way for you to read the story OUT of order.
You unlock the UBW route by playing Fate, and you unlock HF by playing UBW.
You can't just skip to UBW or HF.
I'm glad for that. You don't have to read the same kinds of interactions.

>>144141505
While I agree with you that Fate is a medicore VN, this is clearly bait
>>
>>144149938
My point is that they do not stand on their own.

FSN is one continuous work consisting of three chapters, the three routes are not like three different novels.

>side story
This statement is mostly correct, but know that Nasu did oversee most of the work on Zero's creation and approved of it. It is canon at this point.

The VN has it's place, but has been largely overshadowed by the 'summary' work that is Zero. The medium is easier to digest(24 [email protected]~ hours versus the 20+ hour VN), and is also more visually appealing. The arguably worst part of the VN, the eroge, was cut as well from F/Z & UBW. Maybe the VN was good when you were 12, but you are 23 now and have hopefully matured to the point of acquiring good taste. If not, sorry about your shitty taste.

I'll just leave this QUALITY here as perspective for those looking to read the VN and those that don't remember it.
>>
>>144150166
How is that QUALITY?

honestly most of the spin-off stuff like Zero, Prisma, Extra, Apocrypha is better than F/SN

Like most Wapanese storytelling the VN is an example of "Great idea, Pisspoor execution"

All three of the routes are pretty great but take about a million years to get started because Nasu can't into pacing. Once the war gets going it's a pretty wild ride... but to get there, SURE HOPE YOU ENJOY 20 HOURS OF SHIROU PRATTING ABOUT HIS KITCHEN

If you actually care about getting into it properly read the VN for F/SN. If not, then why bother asking? Pick something at random, it doesn't matter.
>>
>>144150931
I think knowing the story of FSN makes watching Zero more enjoyable. It's not worth reading through the whole VN though.

People here have been telling anyone that would listen that the FSN VN is better than Zero. I finally finished it recently, and I don't know if these people are suffering from nostalgia or hipster elitism but it's just not true.
>>
>>144151865
How is it not? It is a much more complete account of Shirou's growth as a hero, and just the general concept of heroism, since it features 3 routes each of which is meant to portray a different angle. It is definitely worth reading through the whole VN if you want the F/SN experience.

F/Z is just an addendum and that's why knowing the story of F/SN makes it's more enjoyable.
>>
Fate Zero is more MATURE because it has ADULT characters and a GRIMDARK setting written by the butcher himself! Did I mention it has ADULT characters?

This is a MATURE anime for INTELLECTUALS.
>>
>>144151962
>F/Z is just an addendum and that's why knowing the story of F/SN makes it's more enjoyable.

Not necessarily. F/Z prologue is a good enough world builder to give you background information on the war, some families, and introduces the means in which heroes are summoned and the origin of the war.
And if you want more background information, it is listed on the extras in the Blue Ray downloads
I can see how a person who's been subjected to FSN would appreciate Zero more, but Zero honestly stands on its own
>>
>>144152061
I definitely agree F/Z can stand on its own I just think it's the gateway fate anime of the worst kind

Also true. Medusa may not be as strong as Iskander, but it's literally his worst possible opponent. Worse than Gil.

And with Shiro's shitty Aius it managed to overwhelm it. Just because it's slightly weaker than one of the strongest NP out there doesn't make it weak, quite the opposite.

>>
>>144166207
I didn't even make it that far. I finished Fate while skipping a good load of that route, started that route, had quite a bit of difficulty to get past the stupid situations (like Sakura engaging Shirou at school, which reminded of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnZUUzlL60Q ) and I said "fuck it" when Saber jobbed AGAIN against a normal human with reinforced fists when Servants are supposed to have reflexes far surpassing those of humans.
>>
>>144166335
Nash genius writing strikes again
>>
>>144166335


Okay, let's see your first problem was skipping a good load of the first route...I mean you didn't need to finish everything at once, you just needed to take it slow until the route entered it's climax moments. That's why I don't undertand why people call it "boring", I mean sure, it's supposed to have that SOL like feel to it in the start to set you up for the VN characters and the second part of the route so there is no need to rush that part at all

In UBW you missed the point with Kuzuki, he is not really a normal human in any shape or form, he is a deadly assassin with a technique that can kill any normal person in it's first attack, the only reason Saber survived is because she is a servant

However that's the extent of Kuzuki's power, outside of his first surprise attack, he can't hope to be a match against servants

Futhermore Fate/ and the Nasuverse in general is full of these things, the weak beating the strong because they have good counters or moves that can overpower the strong for a time

That's why Saber beat Gil, Shirou beat Gil, Shiki beat Nero Chaos in Tsukihime and so on
>>
>>144166719

Because one person's opinion will somehow bring down a famous and renowed VN like F/SN
>>
>>144166732
Gil isn't the best if you don't give him the time to sit around spamming swords at you, he can't really keep up in a fight with people who know what they're doing.

If everyone didn't start the fight from fucking 40 meters away he'd not look so scary.
>>
Fate ae a whole is trash.

KnK was the guys magnum opus
>>
>>144166848
>KnK was the guys magnum opus

>FLOATING OR FLYING
>>
>>144166784

Nah, Gil is dangerous as fuck

He doesn't just spams swords, he spams NPs

And he has an instant win button in the form of EA

Saber and Shirou only won their battles against him because they had good counters agaisnt him, and having good counters > having more power in the Fate franchise and the Nasuverse in general

This is an example from Mahoyo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fU-27H4XNAc

>>144166987
>don't give him space to do any of that

But it's fate, everyone starts a fight from the other end of the town instead of just taking out a nigga when you're up in his grill.
>>
>>144165614
>And with Shiro's shitty Aius it managed to overwhelm it.

Aegis is the strongest shield, it can take about anything because it what it does.

His "shitty" is simply its a copy of the original, it will work as the original but being a copy doesnt last long, what he used was a copy of Aegis that survived long enough, the real thing would not break but thats how Archer fights, he makes disposable copies to suit the situation that makes him a very dangerous foe since he can count about anything as long he knows what it is and what can counter it.
>>
>>144166944
And Fate is shounenshit that shoehorns eroge segments and cooking for literally no reason.
>>
>>144167052
Archer's version is far ahead of Shirou's is what I'm saying.

Also the Cross Shield/Lost Camelot or whatever it's being called (assuming it is the cross shield) is the strongest shield by far.
>>
>>144167052
>Aegis is the strongest shield
Too bad Rho Aias is not the Aegis.
Rho Aias is just the shield of Ajax the Great. It is a conceptual weapon against thrown projectiles since it stopped the "invincible" Durindana, but it's not unbreakable to anything else. (And Excalibur is not a thrown weapon so it does not even have that benefit.)
>>
>>144167086
so we're all in agreement that Nasu's only good stuff is Mahoyo and Extra/CCC
>>
>>144167041

That's the thing, you can't get closer to GIl unless you use somethign like UBW

Saber tried in Fate but he just spammed more shit at her and she had to dodge and give him space because she didn't knew the effects of the NP he was throwing at her

She only actually managed to get close to him once she fooled him in using EA and activated Avalon

>STOP PONTIFICATING AND START GETTING CLOSER BEFORE THE FIGHT STARTS
You do realize that a hostile approach would signal to Gilgamesh that the fight is starting, and make him start shooting, right?
>>
>>144167376
Servants are fucking fast. Also you don't always need to be hostile, just walk towards while talking.

I mean Alexander could have just smacked him when they were standing next to each other, but he didn't because he didn't realise what a tactical disadvantage he would have.
>>
>>144165419

It kinda goes over people's heads, but she and Sakura are an excellent combo, but Nasu gave them every crippling effect in the book. That was why Hollow was so nice, because you finally could see them fighting together (and for 90% of the chuuni fanbase, being 'strong and badass' is one's only redeeming factor so it raised points for some people, but that is a rant for another time). Sakura was able to, in six months, make it to the point she was able to fight for a whole hour circuits on tilt in the middle of a tidal wave of undead before *starting* to tire.

Medusa has great physical power she keeps in check to not start transforming into a monster, and more than a few ancient magic abilities. And implied she could make a citywide Bloodfort pretty easily if she wanted to.

Altogether, they are a good team. And she is actually a good Servant.
>>
>>144167457

Dude, you're making no sene

Gil is a servant too, if he detects hostile intent, he will act
>>
>>144167622

*sense
>>
>>144167622
He's worse than most people though, by orders of magnitude. He isn't a fighter. Not even close.
>>
>>144167714
That doesn't mean he is incapable of reacting at servant speeds.
Remember, Gil is also difficult to surprise if he's treating an enemy as a veritable threat. He has to completely dismiss an enemy for them to have a chance. Servants generally have no chance because even though he looks down on them, he doesn't consider them harmless.
>>
>>144166732
>Okay, let's see your first problem was skipping a good load of the first route...I mean you didn't need to finish everything at once, you just needed to take it slow until the route entered it's climax moments.
You don't understand. I didn't skip the first part of the VN, I skipped a good part of the end after Archer dies to Hercules. The writing was just hamfisted (lel, let's fuck in the ruins) and so ridiculously cliché that I had to skip to prevent myself from inflicting damage to my face. The beginning was kinda bad but the middle section of the route wasn't bad, in fact, I happened to like it, especially the part with Shinji. It's really at the end that it became awful and made me wish it was over.

>In UBW you missed the point with Kuzuki, he is not really a normal human in any shape or form, he is a deadly assassin with a technique that can kill any normal person in it's first attack, the only reason Saber survived is because she is a servant
That's not my point. If you have superior reflexes, you can see attacks and read patterns. Kazuki's attack should have seemed so slow to Saber that reading it and dodging it shouldn't have been a problem, especially if she went against Lancer and cornered him until he used his NP. Nasu's writing is so terribly convenient that he comes up with such hamfisted ways to pose threats to the main characters it loses credibility most of the time.
And anyway, I cannot bear the dream sections so I won't go back to it. Nasu can't into romanticism for shit.
>>
>>144167622

Perhaps, perhaps not. Gil's entire character is being fickle as fuck. He might shoot you for being cordial if you aren't cordial in the right way, there was a scene early in HF where Shirou gets the feeling he is gonna shoot him, and he was just looking at him when he walked in the church, but stopped and made creepy cryptic comments to him instead about being entranced by something unpleasant.

The guy, for how much he is lauded as some prophetic wiseman by some, is almost entirely driven by emotion and his twisted aesthetics.
>>
>>144167844
You're still concieving situations where people are just sorta approaching firmly in his view and standing around before going.

If they don't give him the luxury of being able to stare them down then he's not going to do well.
>>
>>144167894
>I happened to like it, especially the part with Shinji.

I'll bite because I usually want to give people the benefit of the doubt so I won't go on about bait, but what part with Shinji actually enticed you?
>>
>>144167907
>If they don't give him the luxury of being able to stare them down
Gilgamesh literally has general-omniscience as an NP
you're not going to sneak up on him with ill intent unless you've got presence concealment EX or a NP of concealment
>>
>>144168060
So how did lancelot take him by surprise then?
>>
>>144167993
Because I actually enjoyed the situation with the whole highschool taken hostage and how Shinji didn't actually control the situation and was kinda doing it without really wanting to do it (at least, that's how I saw it), and the action scenes were pretty good because they weren't relying on stupid plot armor unlike the rest. This part was just quite entertaining.
>>
>>144167894

>The writing was just hamfisted (lel, let's fuck in the ruins) and so ridiculously cliché that I had to skip to prevent myself from inflicting damage to my face.

It's really at the end that it became awful and made me wish it was over.

Then I don't really understand it...the end was the best part of the first route bar none

I mean sure, taht part in the ruins was retarded and that's why they changed it in the Realta Nua version but afterwards you only getgood moments.

1) Shirou projecting and not being useless
2) Character develoment for Saber and Shirou
3) Illya being dere
4) Gilgamesh not playing around as he was in UBW
5) Kotomine being evil as fuck
6) Last fight being pretty awesome
7) Lancer being a boss

And so on...so IMO since you ended yup skipping the sex scene, you lost the best scenes of the whole route

> If you have superior reflexes, you can see attacks and read patterns.

That's the thing you are not getting, in the Nasuverse raw power doesn't means instant win

Kuzuki's technique is designed to be unpredictable and a sure kill move and he was being super reinforced by Caster herself , that's why he killed Rider and the fact that Saber was able to survive just shows that she is not a normal servant at all

If you are unable to rationalize this concept of the weak beating the strong because of better techniques or counters, then the nasuverse isn't for you....you're better off with Shounen shit


>And anyway, I cannot bear the dream sections so I won't go back to it. Nasu can't into romanticism for shit.

Subjective opinion..also that's not Nasu there, it's a translation of a VN that is very diffcult to translate, Nasu's prose is actually pretty good so if something ends up being awkward here and there it's because of the translation
>>
>>144167907
>If they don't give him the luxury of being able to stare them down then he's not going to do well.

Remember that time when Berserker broke out of Enkidou and attacked Gil form a few meters distance? Didn't work very well.
>>
>>144168060
>Gilgamesh literally has general-omniscience as an NP

He does, but it's also said he ignores it sometimes. Like if he had a situation where a human might beat him, he'd think "there is no way that's right" and deliberately ignore the nagging feeling he gets until reality hits him in the face because of pride. Case in point, Shirou and Sakura (although he has less excuse with Sakura because he purposefully knew she would go mad and then got butthurt that she didn't perform as he wanted her to, there is even a win quote in Unlimited Codes that references it).
>>
>>144167907

You won't be able to get a jump on Gil unless he understimates you heavily or you have something like UBW to fuck GOB up
>>
>>144168195
He was already set up in that instance.

Also the way it was animated I can't remember if it was the same in the VN, but it was the single stupidest move to jump backwards. Just, absolutely moronic.
>>
Not canon.
>>
>>144168227
>understimates you heavily

So the default state of affairs?

Gil underestimates everyone at first. (and then gets away with it because he's the bad guy and he needs to actually appear powerful for there to be any tension or drama)
>>
>>144168125
Lancelot has an NP of concealment (For Someone's Glory)
>>144168211
He has to severely underestimate someone for that which he doesn't do with servants.
>>
>>144168283
He at the very least treats servants as possible legitimate threats that he will react defensively against.
>>
>>144168294
For someone's glory was downgraded because of mad enchantment so it only concealed his stats and identity.
>>
>>144168283

>So the default state of affairs?

Only if he is fighitng someone like Shirou, who normally wouldn' tbe able to get close to Gil nevertheless

For reference, he treated Saber seriously in Fate even unleashing EA

>Gil underestimates everyone at first. (and then gets away with it because he's the bad guy and he needs to actually appear powerful for there to be any tension or drama)

I said heavily

To this point in the series, the only one he understimated heavily was Shirou

Which is barely enough to catch Gil off guard.
Note that Gil was not at any point actually threatened by Lancelot. He was just aggravated.

>>144168427
>Gilgamesh isn't a retarded

He's only ever displayed retardation. Every word he says is moronic. Every action he takes is moronic. He's never displayed intelligence above that of a 12 year old.
>>
>>144168416

He would do so in Zero too since she earned his interest, the same with Iskander

>>144168427

Not really, UBW completely nullifies GOB and pressures Gil because he is forced to a hand to hand combat he dislikes
>>
>>144168437
Because lancelot didn't get in his gril, he sat around after letting gil see him. I mean he's insane so it's not like I can fault that.
>>
>>144168480
Doesn't ubw only allows Shirou to make sword at no cost, which wouldn't stop Gilgamesh from using anything else. If he just threw a bunch of axes he would have won.
>>
>>144168132

>because he didn't want to

No, he very much wanted to do that. Being a master is something he decided with his own will, let's get that out of the way.

I won't spoil things for you on plot points down the road, but Shinji for all his boasting, really doesn't know much about being a mage in practice. He kinda was handed a really good servant that he wasted. And planting the Bloodfort at the school was in fact, as Rin said, an incompetent idea as a magus to be that upfront.

As for plot armor, Shirou is a protagonist that has almost as many deaths as he has successes, so I wouldn't say plot armor is necessarily evident too many times with him. Case in point about that one bad end in UBW you can get by asking Issei about the temple was a great example of unexpected consequences.
>>
>>144168548
Shirou can project more than swords, it just cost more mana for non-swords.
>>
>>144168548

He can project axes too, after all UBW is just a name when there is even a shield there

Also, UBW beat GOB because it wa faster and it could anticipate GOB swords and weapons in general before they gained momentum
>>
>>144168170
>That's the thing you are not getting, in the Nasuverse raw power doesn't means instant win

This solely doesn't change the fact that saber shouldn't have been caught off guard like that.

>>
>>144168449
>moronic
moronic in IRL, not in nasuverse
>>
>>144168548
UBW can copy anything relating to melee combat, including axes, hammers, spears, shields, and armor. It's more expensive to trace defensive equipment, but tracing is 100% free while the RM is up--it only costs magical energy to trace into his hands outside UBW.
>>
>>144164061
Based Percy's(besto rider) edge is enough to kill them both.

I know which would mean it would cost more and make it last less. He could have used just a steel chain or enkdiu to be done with the battle, but instead he acts like a fucking retarded.

Why shouldn't she? Wasn't Gil himself caught off guard by a mere human too?

In Mahoyo, a mere human with some particulairties defeated a a being with power close to that of a divine spirit with two moves

Don't bring Gil when I'm talking about saber and Kazuki's confrontation.

She should never have been caught off guard when she is faster, has better reflexes and can process information in her head quicker than that mere fag and yet still was out done on the suprise by Kazuki.

Hahahahahahaha

Shirou is farrr from mature and thinks everything can be solved just by beating someone in a fight.

A mature person is someone who knows he's vastly out matched in a fight and would have came up with a plan on his own to deal with that or retreat.

He traces the general statistics of their wielders and the sword will even fight of its own accord if he traces it well enough. This was in Fate, UBW, and HF at various points.

No, it was a little ways below, but not low enough for her to completely work around it.
Sasaki Kojirou's strength is C and he still clashed swords with her keeping up with technique instead of power.

Nonsense. Kuzuki is an already-superhuman assassin empowered by ancient supermagic.

There is no power level inconsistencies

Literally nothing compared to one of top servants in that route.

>Saber wan't expecting a human tohave such power, Kuzuki's technique + power was able to surprise her, end of the story

It doesn't even matter, she can react faster and defend her self much more quicker than him doing a single thing to her even if she didn't expect him to be boosted like that.

It's retarded, case closed.

I know another manga that uses the same concept. It's called Akame ga Kill.

Reminder that Saber isn't a top tier servant whilse she is under Shirou

>It doesn't even matter, she can react faster and defend her self much more quicker than him doing a single thing to her even if she didn't expect him to be boosted like that.

Kuzuki's abilities rely on his opponent not being able to react at, it's his style, a one hit sure kill

wonder why you are mad for this parituclar situation when in another seires of the Nasuverse a freaking human dealt with a being almost divine spirit level in freaking two hits

Just deal with it

Why are you so retarded and can't grasp that the saber and Kuzuki confrontation was straight up retarded like any other shounen?

>>144170414
>Kuzuki's abilities rely on his opponent not being able to react at, it's his style, a one hit sure kill

Yeah managing to stop her first attack then fight toe to toe with her then fucking strangle her was something she can't react possibly to huh? Go fuck yourself shit is dumb retarded.

Nice meme. I bet you think it's better since it more "mature".

Pay attention to the scene, she tried to react but she just couldn't keep up with Kuzuki's reinforced assassination style because she wan't expecting it

This is how thigns work in the Nasuverse, deal with it

this is why we ahve Shirou beating Gilgamesh, Shiki beating Nero Chaos, Shirou almot beating Saber Alter and Soujuurou from Mahoyo beating Lugh Beowulf

No they expect that they get treated with respect and that they would follow the visual novel faithfully. It had no fucking monologue, so he still seemed like a semi retarded

In /a/'s jargon, it's called "bad writing".

It's funny how Zero and UBW had opposite pacing problems.

So you are VN elitist

>>144171852

>Says Kuzuki vs Saber went against the rules because the one with the bigger power level received an almost killing counter move

do you 2+2, friend?

>>144171950
Yeah fuck me for wanting something to follow a thing faithfully. Fuck me. I just want to go to sleep. It's fucking raining like shit here in Oslo
>>
>>144171866
Zero didn't have pacing problems like UBW did. UBW is 2/3rds the length of FZ and yet both anime are the same. Rin's "sex scene" was a whole damn episode. UBW had terrible pacing in the 2nd cour by a much worse magnitude.

You're retarded

>>144171950
How Kuzuki was supposed to know he was countering Saber? He had never seen her before and he doesn't know what she's capable of. It's not like he has carefully planned something after seeing her beforehand and studied how to counter her. It was nothing but dumb plot armor to have Kuzuki survive the encounter and have the development regarding Caster and shit instead of having her die stupidly again like in the first route.

Haha this is hilarious. Let's say for your sake she was dumbed down and after having her first attack stopped it suprised her, but there is literally no justifiable reason for her to be caught in a fucking strangle hold after. Saber isn't some arrogant guy like Gil and make herself retarded.

You say how he has one hit kill methods despite them clashing quite a bit in their confrontation so saber should have then out matched him in speed and reflexes then and not get fucking grabbed in the neck like she was some worthless shit.

Keep trying to defend this inconsistency all you want you fate drone.
>>
>>144172221
>suffers near fatal blow to neck
>no justifiable reason when the reasoning is literally spelled out that the attack was completely unconventional and nearly impossible to predict
Why do people like you even bother to criticize the writing of a story when you can't even follow a simple action scene?
>>
>>144172371
Because Servants don't use "unconventional" attacks as well? Saber managed to withstand the endless assault of NP from Gil at the end of the Fate route despite not knowing their effects and getting hit by some and still managed to stand and deal the final blow, and she's supposed to fall to a few blows coming from a guy with reinforced fists?
>>
>>144172371
Saber should never have been harmed and should easily have been capable of avoiding that grab but yeah keep being this retarded.

The guy fucked up his one hit kill strike chance and from then on should have been flat out defeated.

Why are you seriously trying to justify saber being severely downgraded just in their fight?
>>
>>144172147

His technique is crafted for surprise attacks, Saber was understimating him because he was a human but Kuzuki knew she was dangerous as a servant, he was also beign reinforced by Caster's magic and could therefore easily counter Saber initial attacks

It is said that he wouldn' t be able to keep up with Saber later on which is why Caster retreats
>>
>>144172221

She as damaged from the first attack and in shock, Kuzuki has experience in those type of attacks, she tried to fight against him but he still managed to counter her one last time

However it is said that Kuzuki's attacks only worked on her for that time only a they rely on surprise


>>144172566

>Servants use unconventional attacks

Saber uses an traditional method of sword fighting as evidenced in Hollow Ataraxia, her instinct helped her against Gil in Fate but that's because she wasn't understimating him

>>>144172620

She was not downgraded, he was hit with a killing strike survived and would ahve killed Kuzuki if they ever fought again considering Archer was able to do so
>>
>>144141505
>this absolute cancer and bait
>all these replies
Thanks GI JOE
>>
>>144173315
The only time she should have been suprised is when he caught her blade with his demand elbow and knees. Right then she should have then easily evaded his fists attacks.

And yes she was downgraded. She was made slower and less responsive.

Even her own instincts should have made her react much more quicker despite her being "suprised".

How comes there are so many saber clones?

Like I've even seen an edgy version of her.

Why is she so popular?

Actually read it and find out. the courtship's awkward for 80% of it but they're perfect thematically.

it's really not that hard to understand. She was thrown off long enough for him to pull off an ultra combo
