Is this a sequel to ataraxia? or fate stay night? Please I just want the main story line to continue. I don't care about these spinoffs.
>The rural American west is the setting for this OVA, in which a bizarre and brutal attack on a NASA base in Arizona attracts the attention of a French secret service agent, Monsieur Lassar, when a dead CIA agent is found floating on the Seine in Paris. Lassar is convinced that these two events are related, and sets out to prove it. His investigation leads him to film star Lamia Vindaw and a vampire cult that may be far more vicious and dangerous than its eccentric exterior makes it seem.
>First, a brutal terrorist attack on a NASA base takes place deep in the Arizona desert. Then ten days later, the corpse of a CIA man is found floating in the Seine in Paris. Are the two events connected? Monsieur Lassar of the French Secret Service thinks there is a connection, but he can't figure it out. He hires International terrorist, spy and master criminal Kousaburo Kuki to help. Kuki discovers film superstar Lamia Vindaw is the key to the mystery. She has become the focus of a CIA operative in Paris and more sinisterly, the target of a bizarre vampire cult. Can Kuki get to the bottom of the mystery and save the glamorous Miss Vindaw - or will he too become just another number in the bloody body count?
There's a series of Vampire-related novels in Japan called "Vampire Wars" that Nasu and Takeuchi are big fans of. SO when they reprinted later editions or something, Takeuchi did a whole bunch/all of the covers and illustrations. He made one of the main female protagonists Lamia Vindau (aka Kiki) look exactly ike the genetic offspring of Arcueid and Saber. The other illustrations, of which there's a bunch, are kinda cool,
>a dead CIA agent is found floating on the Seine in Paris
Did somebody say don't have functioning eyes?
>vampires look like fucking Heracles
So it's 2011-2012 where the hair "pulling up" becomes hair "pulling down". It doesn't look like it's entirely intentional, though. I wonder what Takeuchi himself thinks about it; I'm sure he has a unique perspective on the design evolution.
Shut the fuck up about Grand Order; nobody cares that you don't like it nor about why you don't like it. I'm talking about my curiosity re: a stylistic change in an unrelated franchise, and you bring Grand Order into the discussion because you want so much for people to know that you don't like it. Cut that shit out.
Akiha is a lot thinner than Saber. Oh and here's more of Takeuchi's vampire wars.
I see this is a Type Moon thread.
I don't care what the topic is. It's probably some retarded shit anyways.
What matters is that Akiha is the best Tsukihime girl, without question.
There is no debate. Don't waste your (You)'s on me unless they are (You)'s which share my view.
I'd like to say more on this. A lot of people who say these characters look alike think that Takeuchi is doing it on purpose or that any singular character is the "base" but it seems clear to me that he simply has a few archetypes from which all his creations comes from. So when people take Arc as she is now and remove her red eyes and change her hair style and say "look she's identical to Saber" I feel like that's more of a statement of how Takeuchi draws in general then of the "Saber design". You could easily take Noel, change her hair and compare her to Touko from Mahoyo.
Pic related for example is part of what I'm talking about. In my opinion Takeuchi draws from a few bases but those aren't meant to be any singular character.
You're right, you know. People complain a lot about things they don't understand, I suppose. That's true in all facets of life. It's just depressing that people can get so angry over things that are accidental or unintended.
The first one kinda looks like Nanako.
>black eyebrows with blonde hair
>no hair intakes to feed her ramjets
This design sucks.
