Pushing the heroine out of focus was a dubious direction choice.
You were saying? If he was some tertiary character that'd be pretty good, but he isn't.
Gilgamesh is the best self-insert, prove me wrong.
>smug beyond belief
>does whatever the fuck he feels like doing
>hates everyone but himself and a select few
>has a term for people that aren't him or what he thinks they should be (equivalent to normalfag)
>loses his temper really fucking quickly if things don't go his way
>lazy, doesn't put any effort into things which often comes back to bite him in the ass
He'd fit the bill for an anon pretty damn well if that anon had a few thousand years of his powers and authority to grow in ego.
It's human nature, it's why we resonate with villains a lot. The fact that we in specific are extra cynical, bitter, and have disdain for anyone we label normalfag just makes us all the more likely to do so. The difference is Gil is stunningly good looking,intelligent, and has amazing powers. Anons have, at absolute best, only two of those, and all lack the most important one. Oh and amazing willpower which none of us have.
Personality is there, traits to back it up? Not so much.
She was in her late twenties when she died IIRC, though her body is eternally young. It's a bit weird for her fall for a teenager, but he's "18" so it's technically alright.
It cut out a lot of shit by necessity, most damningly most of Shirou's internal monologue. It also had that dumbass shit with the Tohsaka crest. Still, it was a decent adaptation, and if it got more people to read the visual novel then it's good in my book.
People shit over it way too much. It's one of the better VN adaptations out there, it's pretty much impossible to adapt all the internal monologues. The changes it had were interesting and helped keep the story fresh and different enough from the VN in a non-intrussive way too.
The thing with the crest I liked, it's the best change in Realta Nua in my opinion, and sex scenes have no place in a story like this, especially with how forced they are in the novel.
>sex scenes have no place in a story like this
I think it depends on the context. The second one in the Fate route is rather heartwarming, for example, while the first one is incredibly out of place. Rin suddenly revealing that porking Saber will recharge her batteries seems rather at odds with the tone of leaving Archer to die against Herc not five minutes ago.
Of course, it's all ruined by the fact that Nasu's sex scenes are all more chuckle-inducing than actually erotic.
Don't forget he only participates in the grail war ironically and also only fights others ironically, never actually being serious. Unless his waifu is there, then he does get serious.
Its more how he always looses because of it , shits too real
[Spoiler] I was born talented and with great genes, but due to being repeatedly told that I didnt put in enough effort due to not having to and might very well end up wasting both, blog over
I thought the Shirou vs Gil fight could have been executed better. And too much flashy blurs for some fight scenes, I was hoping some of the Servant combat would be more clear and choreographed with the budget they had.
The fuck are you talking about, the fact that they were in the top 20 is pretty impressive considering this was right after Zero and it'd been long since either of them had been relevant to anything. Even more true for Kohaku.
>The thing with the crest I liked
It just doesn't make sense, the transfer of a family crest is supposed to be a big deal, an arduous process requiring months or even years of painful rituals and a whole bunch of prerequisites to do correctly, not something you can do just by stripping and doing a short ritual.
>everyone bitching about how it was a bad adaption
>as if they haven't seen either of DEEN's versions
UFO Table actually did a pretty decent job imo, especially in comparison to the other shit we've gotten in the past.
I thought it was incredible and there was a lot of love put into it.
I couldn't ask for a better adaptation.
It's barely just started. Narita isn't known for writing short stories, and he's been very slow this time. I just hope it's made by ufotable instead of A-1 or Shaft or some other shitty studio.
Difficult to say because he's a dick. He could either fuck off and sleep with women, including Shirou's love interests, or could become interests and use his Hero Making EX skills to buff him.
Solomon is an empty man like Shirou and Kotomine, so it'll be a potentially interesting scenario to explore the 'defect'. Shirou could learn to become a person as he helps Solomon become a person. Also it'll bring new conflict with Kotomine because he's an important person for his religion.
What was the point of this shitty obnoxious character?
Meanies. Taiga is a lovely young lady.
Ilya will never be mai daughterfu
Solomon Solomon, or Goetia Solomon?
Too much "onore" and too much focus on the impacts of the insignificant swords nullifying each other. There was no real 'animation' to it; it was just watching brightly-coloured lines fly at each other and blow up until Shirou jumped at Gil. Even the brief part before, when Gil dicks around with Shirou from the top of the temple, proves more entertaining to me. At least there's some sense of tension in it.
Mainstream release so people cant deflect all complaints to "read 20+ hours of a galgame and it's good" as if that isn't just gonna cause stolckholm syndrome.
I look forward to it happenig again with hf movies
Only reason you would like a delusional and annoying moralfag like Shirou is because you're a teenager cuck who self insert as him
That's a compliment, anyone who takes pride in reading eroge trash should not be allowed to post on /a/
Except in her time, nobody had 'teenage lives', retard. It wasn't her sacrifice or anything. Literally you were expected to marry at 13 at most for girls and push out babies. In Arturia's case who was raised as a guy, she was expected to be an adult by 15 as any other guy.
>FGOshitters are also newfags
Shouldn't surprise anyone. Nobunaga was a joke design from Koha Ace long before FGO, she was never meant to be the real Nobunaga because genderbending everything is fucking stupid.
There's a version on nyaa that combines their regular subs with the new BD scenes.
Most boring war I've ever seen in any piece of fiction. The characters were generic trash too
The flaw is in the presentation of the narrative.
You can't just make Fate into an anime.
The VN is full of monologuing about ideals and getting stabbed over and over.
When you translate that to a visual medium, you lose the majority of Shirou's character unless you play it smart with the visual metaphors, which UBW doesn't.
Shirou vs Gil missed the point so hard its not even funny. The shtck of that fight is that Shirou is a garbage mage and a semi-normal human, he can only fight Gilgamesh because UBW locked out GoB and he gets the hand to hand skill from the weapon he's wielding. The anime had him fly around like a fucking Servant
That's exactly what the anime showed faggot, just because he was moving faster than usual changes nothing, it still came down to a close range fight and they clearly showed that UBW was overwhelming GoB.
