He's a dumbass, but I don't hate him

>>146366571
He's okay. I just hate when the narrative bends itself so much to make him look good like with the fight with Gil in UBW.
>>
>>146366571
Yeah I guess. He's a broken guy with a ton of mental issues but he's a really good guy and he seems like he'd be fun to hang out with.

So what's the rank of Richard's Excalibur anyway? It can't be as powerful as the real one, right? It doesn't seem right that someone would be able to copy the crystallization of humanity's dreams so easily. Even Shirou can't do that, and Excalibur is one of the few Noble Phantasms not present in Gilgamesh's treasury.

>>
>>146377460
Richard with Excalibur as strong as the original will be too OP since he have 7 heroic spirits inside his shadows that protect his blind spots and he can also use their items IIRC.

But this is SF we're talking about here where servants are broken as fuck. Richard having an Excali as Strong as seibah will not be a surprise and there are actual legends that Richard gained excalibur at some point before he died.

>>146377855
Dude, SF have fucking Dumas that can create NPs stronger than the original.
>>
>>146377967
That probably depends on the Noble Phantasm, don't you think? Not all Noble Phantasms are all that impressive.

Or what, do you honestly believe that Dumas can do better than the planet itself? Do you believe that he could create a better Ea?
>>
>>146378080
>Do you believe that he could create a better Ea?
Yes? The only question is how will he pull it off. There might be some kind of process before he can make stronger NPs.
>>
>>146378364
He can't make a better Ea. He can't make Ea period. There can be only one Ea. It's a rule. Not to mention, it's completely beyond human comprehension. A human cannot create something he doesn't understand on a fundamental level. Dumas would only be able to create things that he understands.
>>
>>146378452
Good to hear if that's true, all I'm saying is anything can happen in SF since it's a wankfest and still new.
>>
>>146378635
It's something that Nasu wrote.

It's unlikely that Dumas can create anything that's non-replicable by Unlimited Blade Works. UBW works based on Shirou's ability to analyze a weapon. If he can't analyze a weapon, it means it's beyond his comprehension. Holy swords like Excalibur just can't be replicated by default, and Ea is in a separate category altogether.

EX-ranked weapons can't be replicated on principle. The reason Shirou was able to replicate Avalon was because he had a perfect image of it inside him after being fused with it for so long. That being said, he can only replicate it as long as he's connected to Saber.
>>
>>146378767
Note here that Excalibur and Ea aren't in seperate categories. They're both classified as divine constructs, something beyond what a human can understand. You're not wrong, I'm just being pedantic.
>>
>>146378951
I meant in terms of unreadability.

Ea has multiple tiers of protection.

1) It's a divine-forged weapon beyond the comprehension of man.
2) Its components are entirely non-existent in the modern era without even the slightest exception.
3) Only Gilgamesh is allowed to own and wield this weapon. It cannot be replicated because there is only one Ea and it cannot be used by anyone else because there is only one King of Heroes.

So basically, no you cannot use it, no you cannot copy it, yes it is literally the only one of its kind.

It's also reveled now to not really be a sword but a staff instead, so it's natural for Shirou not being able to even comprehend it as it's completely outside of his abilities.

Well to be fair Shirou CAN replicate things other than swords, but that would just be another point in Ea's favor,

He does see Saber again. It took a whole lot of effort on his part though.

I actually do
At first he just seemed like a typical selfincert MC, which he still is in the anime.
Only in the VN do i think you can get a better understanding of his character.
He does has some interesting character traits.
Like being very stubborn, wanting to trush and like people but would kill them in a heartbeat if they did something he himself deemed irredeemable whether it was right to do so or not and also being a little sexist and old fasion sometimes.

But it's the confrontation with Archer that really makes him a good character for me.
Just by hearing them talk to each other you can really get a sence of how self loathing Shirou is and how little he thinks if himself, only driving his impossible ideal even further to the breaking point.

Not that it matters now because Grand order has made the Fate serise to KanCol tier mobile cancer that will forever get milked for it's name now.

None of those are true and you know it.

>>146385797
It is implied that in the end he still wants to follow Archers path so he leaves Rin behind in London while he travels the world.
>>
>>146385866

Rin will be fine. She's got a big-tittied rich blonde girl who's secretly lusting after her.
>>
>>146385866
Rin knows she can't stop him so she wanted to help him with that so he doesn't become a sad existance like Archer.
Doesn't mean they break up.
In fact i find it hard to believe that she would just sit back and let him leave.


Also
See >>146384286 it's is also implied that he does find a way to become a hero without assfucking himself
>>
>>146386076
I am not saying that they broke up, but they definitely seperated.
UBW end implies heavily that he follows Archer without becoming like him and I don't actually think that Rin had any influence on that, sure she and Archer said that in the end, but I think the moment Archer vs Shiro happened, this outcome was determined.
>>
>>146386256

Rin follows him after she finish her studies to travel around the world with him. They become a sentai duo basically.
What's implied is that Shirou, after living his dream, will eventually settle up with Rin.

This is just what Rin wants, the next scene is him being alone chasing after Archer.

You are actually right, I forgot that she said that she would go with him, I only watched UBW twice.
But I still don't believe that he will settle down with her, she said that she wants to return to the Clock Tower but his goal is following Archer, that won't change.
>>
>>146386717
Its what Shirou wants to. He is getting the girl that knows all about his personality and broken ideals and he is also getting to pursue them whilst avoiding the pitfalls that Archer did with Rin's help.

UBW is the most open ended of the routes but what is very clear both from Brilliant Years and the anime epilogue is that Rin sticks with Shirou and supports him whilst he follows his dreams.

Rin hangs out with Shirou and keeps being an influence in his life even in Fate and HF endings where she isn't even the heroine.
Couple that with future Rin's complete dere obsession with Shirou and that's just it.

Unless Nasu spells it out or something, it's highly unlikely that Rin will ever leave Shirou alone, regardless of what Shirou does or becomes.
>>
>>146387018

We already know that Shirou manages to become a hero without destroying himself. There's one key difference in the two scenes we see in the desert, one with Archer and one with Shirou:

-Archer is already deep fried by that point, whereas Shirou is his normal ginger self

This is definite proof that Shirou hasn't been forced to literally destroy his own body in order to follow his ideals.

You know, on another note, why are people always so obsessed if fictional characters are in a relationship or not?
I do not care if they are together or not, but evidence out of Rins mouth says that she will end up in London, while Shiro will end up with sandniggers.
There are probabilities for other cases, but these are most likely, so I wonder why people cling to the miniscule case where they end up together, just because they like the pairing.

In short I think shipping is cancer and ruins discussion and I accuse you of doing it.

He's actually a fantastic character. Sure some people simply handwaive his mere existence by saying he's a shounen hero.
But that's the great thing.
He's a person who tries to live up to the impossible fantasies of a shounen hero in a very dark and cynical world.
He's a very good deconstruction of the shounen hero archetype in that regard and he really grows on me.

He even has an awesome bad ass waifu to watch his back.

>>146387636
Because it's not miniscule. Time and again, regardless of route, it's been implied that Rin would never abandon or leave Shirou regardless of his opinion on the matter.
It's not a matter of shipping. We're merely informing you that your hypothesis that they'll be separate from each other is highly unlikely and has no basis.

Unless, you consider two adults in a relationship who're separate for a period of time as they pursue their goals as "separation" in which case you need to calm down.
>>
>>146388260
I never once talked about them being in a relationship or not, I said that I don't care about that.
My point is that they will be physically seperated in the end, sure he might come back from time to time, but Rin will be in London and he will travel.
If they are in a relationship or not was never my point, I only replied to somebody who thought they would not be in a relationship and explained that he will leave her to travel.

They can't be replicated to the point you can call them a "solid" reproduction. Archer says in UBW that he could create a degraded copy of Excalibur in a suicide attack, and Shirou creates another degraded copy in HF Normal's ending.

Excalibur isn't completely out of the range of "can be [to a point] reproduced" like Ea is. It isn't as good as the Moon Cell's degraded copy, sure, but that doesn't make it completely impossible, just, I don't know, double-degraded maybe.

Depends on who you ask, and where you ask.

Personally, I have problems with HF that draw it below UBW - specifically that it feels like a mishmash of Illya and Sakura routes, as well as frankly not enough of Rider. It also incorporates Rin character development that I think should have been included in prior routes, which ultimately culminated in (coupled with the massive tonal shift in storytelling) led to a very unsatisfying route and conclusion.
>>
>>146389279

Because he just doesn't love Rin as much as he loves Sakura.
>>
>>146389304
No, its just that Sakura's situation was so shit and Sakura refused to help herself that Shirou was able to focus his protection boner directly onto her.

None of the other heroines were in a siuation that required him to make that sacrifice.

The ideals are Shirou's coping mechanism, not his essential nature.

When you're literally reborn from indiscriminate death and violence, it's reasonable that you would desperately search for anything that could bring order and justice to to the meaninglessness. Specifically, Shirou's ideals tell him that he can create that order and justice.

But deep down he knows it's a shame, hence the existence of Archer.

By "that thing", do you mean the grail? He had no idea it was corrupted until he takes that mud bath. Once he does, he promptly destroys it.

If you mean his ideals, he was well aware true peace was beyond his powers. That's why he was attracted to the idea of the Grail and sucked up to old man Jub so he could pilfer it at the last second.
>>
>>146396531
Even without its corruption, the Grail would not have been able to grant his wish. The Grail is a near-omnipotent wish-granter, but it's not omniscient. If the wisher has no idea how to make his wish control, then neither will the Grail.

It does have lore, a ton of it, but it is not really as good as other main titles because the narration is stuck to no more than dialogues.
That said, it does have some really nice scenes.

It should also be said that some new servants are plainly retarded because there are three different writers with different ideas writing for the game.

The servant was kinda bullshit saying that only possible in the specific event made for GO, and not able to be summon otherwise.
Uro just wanted to write about Kerry servant and searched for an excuse.
>>
>>146397226
Is this bait? Whatever, I'll bite. Kiritsugu thought that the Grail would literally solve all of his problems was the more idealistic of the two, while Shirou knew that saving everyone was impossible. If Shirou thought he could save everyone then that would have been his wish. Instead, he knows that it's impossible, and even (correct me if I'm wrong), says that only a fool would think such a thing.
>>
>>146396619
Yeah, but he didn't know that. Jub just wanted something to help him break into the root and got a hired gun to do it for him. All Kerry had to know was that it was a device of great power, and Jub didn't go "btw Kerry if you were ever to fuck us over and hijack the grail for yourself, just remember it's only a big wad of energy that can't do anything you don't know how to do yourself, just fyi" for obvious reasons.

The damn thing is literally marketed as something that can grant any wish, it's the only reason anyone even shows up to the boonies for the HGWs. Kerry couldn't have been reasonably expected to know that was how the Grail worked in advance.

>>146397012
Have you ever wondered why F/* and anime in general are big on fanfic.net and deivantart? You are in the chunni zone freindo, either accept it or bail out.

Kerry's responsible for just a lot of unnecessary deaths. He was a step below Vlad the Impaler in his methods. I mean, even the most hardened, cynical first world military general would go "Dude, what the fuck are you doing?"

There are "necessary sacrifices", and then there's Kerry.

Kerry in general is just an odd vehicle for discussion of his ideals because he's treated as this dark and warped perversion of something good, yet he's treated like that because he stoops to methods that don't really align with his stated ideal anyway. For someone derided as a superhero wannabe turned human calculator, he doesn't really seem that concerned with human life.

For example, it's mentioned he's planted bombs in public places to get at targets he thought were dangerous. But doesn't that just make him the greater threat to humanity as a whole, since the threat his target posed was theoretical at that point? His kills MIGHT have manifested, but Kerry definitively did kill people who would have otherwise lived. How is a bomb somehow going to save more human lives than getting in up-close or innumerable other potentially cleaner options? Even in failure he can say he wasn't the active threat to humanity as a whole.

Or what about Kayneth? Kayneth was broken and ready to leave the war. He posed some kind of distant, theoretical threat but not one that was really going to manifest. Kayneth was crippled, cucked, and humiliated, and he wanted to get the fuck out of dodge city while he had the chance. Killing him was entirely unnecessary. And why can't Kerry just have him sign a scroll that says "I'll stay the fuck out of Kiritsugu's way for the rest of the war and then some?" Why was killing him necessary? For someone who is said to want everyone to be happy and saved if at all possible, it was an oddly vindictive move.

>How is a bomb somehow going to save more human lives than getting in up-close or innumerable other potentially cleaner options? Even in failure he can say he wasn't the active threat to humanity as a whole.
You're asked to believe that it's the only way Kiritsugu could have taken down the target with minimal casualties, but you're convinced that he's stupid and decided that's not the case.
It doesn't have to be realistic, but listen and believe the narrative unless you can see evidence of a mistake.
>>
>>146398471
No, if that's the case, then isn't the fundamental flaw with the narrative itself?
>>
>>146398531
It's not like that doesn't happen in real life. Governments bomb the location of terrorists or whatever, and civilians die as collateral damage.

>>146398216
To get away from Herc, Shirou projects a pair of swords, hops onto them, and uses the momentum of them to fly away out of Herc's grasp.
>>
>>146398613
Wouldn't that normally be the last resort? At the very least, even the government wouldn't immediately go "let's bomb 'em" at the very first opportunity.

He did not know that until the very end. The idea of an omnipotent omniscient magical device that'll solve all the world's problem is what tempted him to join the Holy Grail War, same as everyone else.

Shirou also sees the Grail War for what it is: pointless slaughter.

Kerry on the other hand live for, and only knew slaughter. He believed it had meaning, and was just, but he was mistaken. The Grail chose him as victor, and the Grail is literally pure evil and wants to do evil things. Ergo, Kerry's violent methods were also evil, or at least evil in their meaningless destruction. By the time of Stay Night, Kerry has realized his mistakes. He regrets killing his father, his Onee-san, his teacher and probably everybody else he's killed.

Kerry passes on the knowledge he obtained the hard way, so that Shirou can do better.
>>
>>146398613
The goverment doesn't cares about all human being and world peace like Kerry. Ideally, a goverment only cares about their own citizens.
Other countries can be burn to the ground for all a ruler cares for unless helping them gives some kind of present or future advantage.

A goverment reasoning is completely different to Kerry who supposedly wants to be a hero and cares for humans as a whole.

It's not that hard to obtain, anon. Most people with strong convictions get them from somewhere else, even Shirou gets them from Kerry.

There is no shortage of books on morality/philosophy/ethics systems out there. You also can't go wrong with pic related.

It's natural for people to want to have higher ideals to serve, it's just that modern technology and comforts makes it easier to deaden that sensation. If you have a moment where you want something more, seize it. Even fighting for what's wrong will feel better than having nothing to strive for.

No, you probably should read the VN. Hell, there's even an interview with the director where he admits to projecting his own girlfriend issues onto Sakura, so it's pretty clear why she was portrayed so bizarrely in CP.

Anyways, how she acts in CP is closer to how she acts in F/HA. How she treats Rider in F/HA is fucking horrible.

Yeesh. Do you people like Shirou because he's just as dumb as you?

hehe XD

That's literally it though. Sakura is a close friend he's had for years, Rin is just a crush he's only known for a while.

Anon, this series is trash. I like it but I know better than to think that it's good or that I have good taste just because it's something I like.

Would have preferred Waver as the protagonist.

Stop it with this retarded shit. He barely knows her and has only really taken notice of her beyond "my best friend's sister" since she started getting big tits.

Not any of you but what does talking about taste or arguing about whether or not you are "correct" to like something. The way you people talk about it makes it seems like some mixture of a dick measuring contest and highschool peer pressure.

Fate Shirou cause he's the cutest. UBW is a close second cause of that snazzy jacket. Everyone else is tied for last.

You mean worst ending, what a shameful depiction of the King of the Britons.

>>146408103
The point still stands. It's someone he cares about in a similar way he cares about Taiga. Even if it's just because he's known and interacted with her longer, whereas it's not the same with either Saber or Rin.

Saber was no longer King at that point though, her time had long since passed.

It was the best ending and a great send off for the once and future king.

Welshfag here. I support it 100%
>>
>>146408364
Its the exact same as Saber and Rin. He has fancied Rin for nearly all his teenage life and the moment Saber appeared in front of him was confirmed by Archer to be his most precious and significant memory and moment in his life

Plus, Shirou just wants to save people. Rin and Saber were not in the situation that required him to abandon his ideals.

So no. The point doesnt stand. The point was blown the fuck out iof the water.

The CP thread on Beast's Lair discusses it, for example. And no, it's not even close to how she acts in F/HA.

Not as shameful as Joan of Arc forsaking her religion and everything she fought for so she can fuck some kid.

The game supports my point not yours. Your view of things don't make any sense. If you were to classify Shirou's relationships. Rin and Saber would be in one category and Taiga and Sakura in another.

It doesnt support anything.

Shirou only ever saw Sakura as "Shinji's little sister". He even mentions in the 3 days before getting shanked by Lancer that he has only just started noticing her for who she is.

Not buying it. You mention an "interview" in your rebuttal. Post the citatiation.

She was trying to kill herself along with Angra Mainyu to save everyone, though. The final showdown in HF wasn't about saving the world, but saving Sakura from Angra Mainyu and herself.

Medusa was beautiful until she was cursed by Athena because Poseidon raped her in Athena's temple.

Medusa is associated with one of the most famous horses in ancient mythology

Nasu is a hack
>>
>>146409020
That isnt there at all, anon. She had no will to stop it and actively encourages it. In that scene she was trying to reject Shirou and Rin's advances of saving her only to snap when they both tell her to shut up and let herself be saved.

She would have happily let it be born. Its why she used Saber to stop Shirou and co from destroying it and attacked Rin when Rin was trying to free her. Her self-pity and anger towards everyone who had neglected to save her in her shitty life manifested in her wanting Manjew to be born.

When Rin severed the connection she realised she was a total asshat for wanting that
>>
>>146408977
Okay I get the latter but her personality doesn't seem to reflect that at all and appearance-wise her eyes didn't turn shit to stone until after she became a monster, and maybe I'm being presumptuous but I feel that she's most well-known for being monster with snake hair.

Of course, it's Nasu so they wouldn't want to make her have snake hair at the risk of making people not as sexually attracted to her.
>>
>>146409207
HA confirmed that she does have snake hair, it's just hard to tell.
>>
>>146409192
Nice headcanon, now read the VN. The pic in the post you quoted outright debunks what you're claiming. Shirou wants to go there and save her, but gets interrupted by Rin escalating the situation by saying she'll kill Sakura.
