>OP image is not even related for today's episode
Stop replying to this retard you dumbfucks, this attention seeking faggot will immediately make an another Apoc thread again while the previous threads are still in the front page.
Slowpoke here. The last Fate series I watched was Zero quite some time back. I was wondering what I should watch first.
Fate Stay Night – Unlimited Blade Works Series
The Fate Kaleid Liner PRISMA ILLYA Series
From there I was going to hop into Fate/Apocrypha, but I also see Fate Grand Order – First Order is also coming out.
Any suggestions would be cool.
Watch UBW, if you like Illya and loli fanservice watch Prisma otherwise you don't need to as it is a completely separate spinoff that has nothing t do with any of the other series.
I am only watching this clusterfuck for Jack.
If you have time and like to read, go for the VN. Otherwise go UBW and Prisma. Prisma isn't for everyone though, it is a lot more comedy and loli fanservice than anything else, don't expect a Grail War or servants or anything else, it is closer to CCS than to FSN
Astolfo will win the MCBowl and marry Sieg
>moving so fast it appears shes just standing there
Just like my chuuni fantasies
Problem is, UBW doesn't work as well if you aren't already familiar with the Fate route and which provides a lot of setup for Shirou/Saber/Rin/Illya and then you get the payoff in UBW.
This is your friendly local priest for today.
Thank you annon's, I've been meaning to get around to the VN for years but there's always something new coming out so I was holding off on it.
ufotable's UBW works perfectly fine as a sequel to Zero, you don't need to know anything about the Fate route to enjoy and understand it completely. I have 2 friends who haven't played the VN at all and had no problem understanding Zero -> UBW.
The only thing you miss out on by not reading Fate is just a few "cool" details and nods, but nothing important or game changing.
you miss out on a lot of the fate world/rules being explained and overall tone of the series with teenagers gaining super powers to save the world and having sex to restore strength
>you miss out on all the world rules
The most basic and important ones are covered in Zero, all the other ones are just non-nonsensical rules that Nasu breaks every new series. How many rules has FGO broken already?
Prisma for laughs and some surprisingly decent fights.
UBW for essentially more Zero-esque fate
Grand Order for whatever you want. It's cool to see shielder and caster cu in action, but Saber alter is better in prisma and who knows when or if we'll get more.
Dress her like a proper lady
As someone who just read the VN last month after watching all the anime first I have to say that while the VN is the best, Deen's Fate route adaptation is extremely underrated.
It's probably an unpopular opinion, but I think it aged well. The music is top tier, it covered the critical portions of the route, it was solid, and the seiyuu work and comedy was good too. The only downside was the fights being lackluster compared to ufotable's work
For most of FSN, Cu was weakened because Kotomine placed a command spell "Fight but do not win". To be honest, if the war had been fought without Kotomine interfering, Bazette and Cu would easily have curbstomped most everyone else.
You don't need much more than that though. All you need to know is what the HGW is, what servants are, and that magic exists. Yea knowing about how magecraft works and the different factions and stuff is cool and adds to the story, but it isn't necessary at all. Plus while info dumps can work well in novels, that shit is hard to do in a limited TV series. You want them to fit a whole episode going into the details and history of all magecraft? That would be fucking boring.
I'M HERE TO SAVE APOC!
Just kidding nothing can save it
Cup would have gotten shitstomped by berserker cause they couldn't take enough lives off cause he can'take die to the same thing multiple times, and gay bulge and fraggle rock wouldn'the have been enough.
The armor is way too difficult to animate, too many details. Mordred's armor and Siegfried's designs work in illustration but not in animation.
That's what you get when you let illustrators go crazy and overdesign characters.
>I have to say that while the VN is the best
That is not new, GalixChoco's ship was the most popular from IBO in the same place.
Rather than getting Fraggle Rock'd, which only works if she uses Excalibur or Avalon, I'd say she's better off just trying to tank the Gay and hope she hits her luck roll
Nasu said its "possible" but highly unlikely
> Assassin and True Assassin by themselves wouldn't even be a fight. Lancer can use his runes and Noble Phantasm together to temporarily raise the rank to A, but it'd still be a very disadvantageous fight but "one with some chances".
Q: If the Holy Grail War were set in Europe, would Cu chulainn (Lancer), King Arthur (Saber), and Heracles (Berserker) be roughly equal in power?
A: ...Well, if we’re talking western Europe in general I’d say the first two would be powered up to an equal degree... though England and Ireland, the odds would be sharply in the respective hero’s favor. Heracles would display excellent power in all of western Europe.
But he is the strongest Dragon Slayer
Sieg is the worst MC type-moon ever made.
ruined it into the ground. Fuck this faggot shitter.
Can Cu beat based Flatt?
he should rape sieg's boipussi in front astolfo. making sieg his woman to get back at astolfo
>can Cu beat the personification of stupid luck
Around the same chance as beating Taiga
I don't see it. Cu seems to be pretty resistent to mindrape at this point based on HA
Reposting pasta because it's forever relevant
Apocrypha was set up as a 7 v 7 war between Servants, and most of the first volume seemed dedicated to setting up a huge conflict between the two sides which flipped between perspectives a lot and showed off everyone.
Then Siegfried killed himself to save some random Homunculus who gained the ability to turn into Siegfried and suddenly the plot began revolving around him and him alone, with barely any focus on the more interesting characters. This was never even hinted at in previews for the novels, which pissed people off. It's a near-universal view that Sieg ended up ruining the potential Apoc had and ended up turning it into the adventures of a generic LN protagonist that had others die to power him up and then lead to a ripoff of the Realta Nua Last Episode.
>muh jeannu jannu jannu jannu
The bad writing on the romance certainly didn't help either
>He's still a god-tier mage
No he isn't. He uses the literal worst magic system in a way that makes it work for him. He's a genius but he's also a retard.
And most of all modern mages can't compare to servants besides Angra at all.
>Caliburn is total BS
Herk is just weak against powerful attacks that can deplete his lives in a single blast
>t'd come down to who's concept is more conceptually conceptual
>goes from Pieta to being sat on a throne
He's easily the universally most hated type-moon protagonist ever
bullshit plot armor and power up garbage
>If this is employed in battle as a weapon, and its True Name is released, a firepower on the same scale as Excalibur will be displayed, but its blade will probably be unable to withstand Artoria's magical energy and break.
No it has nothing to do with a weakness on Herc's part
Caliburn's return and power was a total croc of shit. And dying to Anti Fortress NPs isn't a weakness but setting up Excalibur takes time
How many times Saber used full powered Excalibur when her target's right in front of her? 0 times. Do you know why? Because for the Anti-Fortress output she needs to charge it (and she explicitly states that during her fight against Kojirou). She can use Excalibur up close (like against Gilgamesh in Fate), but it won't be as powerful.
>Caliburn's return and power was a total croc of shit.
How? The sword is a mini Excalibur and Herk was already BTFO by redman
> And dying to Anti Fortress NPs isn't a weakness but setting up Excalibur takes time
Not really. She whipped it out really fast to deal with Bellerephon
I don't think you understand what "absolute defense" and "The individual is shielded from all destructive interference in the physical realm, transliners from parallel worlds, and multidimensional communication as far as the sixth dimension. It is on the level of true magic, an actual true magic in itself, that transcends all magecraft, and not even the Five Magics can overcome the barrier" means.
Caliburn: Golden Sword of Compelled Victory
Rank: B (conditionally A+) Type: Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm Range: 1~30 Maximum Target: -
Originally a sword for the sake of selecting the king. Its "Anti-Unit" classification does not refer to the enemy, but instead point to the one who shall have ownership over it from now on.
When the owner turns into a proper, perfected king, its power will become appropriate for a holy sword.
Although inferior to Excalibur, this holy sword also converts the magic energy of the owner into heat value, releasing it as particles of light.
thats new fgo shit though
then the original
>As symbol of the king’s authority, it is more extravagantly adorned than Excalibur. Because of this, its performance as a weapon is also lower than Excalibur’s.
I don't know, why don't you tell me, you seems obsessed with tasting dick
this is the jannu fanservice series
>posting an image without Jeanne, but with Mordred
What's better than a jannu?
Worthless sack of shit.
>tfw this sack of shit took my waifu from Guda(You)
Well let's see...
Saber of Black- Despite his armour Cu's more likely to win thanks to Siegfried's piss poor Luck.
Archer of Black- Can go either way, Chrion might have the upper hand due to his wisdom.
Lancer of Black- If we're basing this on Apo's setting then it would probably result in them both killing each other.
Rider of Black- Cu would win although it would take some time thanks to Astoflo's high Luck.
Caster of Black- No contest, Cu would curbstomp him.
Assassin of Black- He's not female and Jack has low Luck, Cu wins this one.
Berserker of Black-Unfortunately with his low Luck he'd probably let his guard down and get killed.
Saber of Red- Can go either way, but Cu has the upper hand because Mordred has low Luck.
Archer of Red- Cu would win this, but if she goes into her crazy mode that's another story.
Lancer of Red- Cu is fucked, plain and simple.
Rider of Red- Cu would lose because of all the insane NPs Achilles has.
Caster of Red- Cu has strong willpower so I doubt Shakespeare's NP would work.
Assassin of Red- With her flying fortress, Cu has no way to reach her, even throwing his spear wouldn't be enough.
Berserker of Red- Because of how he works, he's a terrible match-up for Cu.
I'm not talking about that particular interaction. B-ranked Gae Bolg negated D-A Fragarach's ability.
Yeah Avalon just straight up shits on all the manipulations with the causality. Because it's fucking EX.
I know Jeanne has them guaranteed. But what are the chances of getting Mordred, Jack and Semi doujins??
come on my dick can only get that hard
>Cu can spam that shit.
If you connect him to a Grail and give him a day or two then maybe he'll kill everyone in the IH.
>Cu can kill armies with GB
>no he can't
>well why would he fight the army???
>Berserker of Red- Because of how he works, he's a terrible match-up for Cu.
To be fair he's a terrible match-up for everyone
>Rider of Red- Cu would lose because of all the insane NPs Achilles has.
That's completly ignoring Achilles' personality
Ruler is not part of the HG itself, it's more like an overpowered referee created by the Holy Grail when people try to cheat - like Shirou and Darnic are doing now. Any ruler servant is someone that has no wish to be granted so they won't try to use the Grail for themselves.
Fate threads - powerlevels and waifu faggotry since 2006
never change /a/
You people do realize that even against Leonidas' spartans he'll need to use Gae Bolg 6 (SIX) times
and in this particular situation he'll get 6 in return but that's not the point. You know what "army" he can kill with Gae Bolg? Okita's shinsegumi squad.
SHE'S SO PERFECT
I WANT TO PROTECT HER SMILE
astolfo already won
Friendly reminder that cute doggo can destroy all servants instantly
We hope will have a original ending with Sieg and Alfolfo ship
Guy has a really weird taste.
Sometimes he has somewhat good taste and says things that make sense, but others he just goes full autism mode when anything Fate is released and goes on and on about it (seriously, is a fucking anime dude, not a fucking literature masterpiece). Not to mention he has weird taste (likes RWBY for some reason) and is a full time SJW.
I mean, Fate fanbase is generally either full of bitter retards of pure autistic, concentrated cáncer, but this guy is something else.
>tfw it's hard to find any hype and conversation regarding Apocrypha anywhere else but /a/
I was hoping Apocrypha would do bad because I feel it has the worst writing of any Fate series but I was at least hoping it'd result in more fanart but nit even the Japanese like it. Pixiv and JP Twitter have practically brushed it aside ,continuing to draw FGO stuff.
By now everyone in Japan knows this already
It's like spoiling that Dio can stop time in Jojo
other than semianus, what other fanart would you want that fgo already hasn't done?
Seriously? Look at the official twitter's followers
Everything gets tons of RT and it's trending in nippon. F/GO and apocrypha fanart overlap a lot too. If an artist draws someone from this who also appears in F/GO they will more likely put it on the F/GO tag. And plus twitter is where most artists post their shit now.
I sincerely hope you're not being retarded anon. Go back to the opening and look at how the shot is framed. Also look at the position of the command seals again.
Loli body + Big butt is the best idea that came out from Apocrypha.
>Implying it's not because they need a closure
According to Higashide, it is not announced on official website about “there will be four volumes only” but now it’s confirmed by increasing one more volume of ”Fate / Apocrypha” series where suppose all four volumes planned, and now all five volumes.
Vol.4 will release on May 30th, feat Mordred Chiron and Shakespeare make appearances in new cover art. Semiramis is only one left, which is most likely we’ll see her in next volume.Thanks to Bosel.blog comments about there is a pattern of cover art:
Vol.1 - Jeanne d’Arc (Ruler), Astolfo, Achilles, Vlad III & Spartacus.
Vol.2 - Siegfried (Saber), Karna, Frankenstein & Jack The Ripper.
Vol.3 - Astolfo (Mascot, go ask Konoe the illustrator artist), Atalanta & Avicebron
Vol.4 - Mordred (Saber), William Shakespeare & Chiron.
Vol. 5 - Jeanne d’Arc or/and “You know who” (Ruler), Semiramis.
Say what you want about the animation but I fucking love the OST so far
God, fuck Sieg and fuck Higashide. Ruined a good premise by his pure shit.
I really want an anime for Fate that has both Hans and Shakespeare in it.
>lots of cool servants in the mobile game which is written and supervised by Nasu directly once act III comes round
>but most of them aren't heroes or legendary figures or fighters
I thought Servants were supposed to be famous real or mythological beings, soldiers, warriors, mages, killers, kings, rulers. I don't understand why guys like Hans, Shakespeare, Nursery Rhyme, Nightingale are qualified to be Servants.
>Higashide is such a genius that the point of Apocrypha WAS to be boring as possible
>Introduce Sieg to make it easier
>all the exciting and intriguing characters being killed off was intentional and necessary to achieve the most disappointing ending
I said nothing about fame. I am complaining about how silly it is they are Servants. One would understand why Lancelot, Achilles, Gilgamesh, Hercules, Solomon, etc...are Servants. But Hans? No.
>Achilles is still trying to claim the pussy.
It's about as canon as Apocrypha and Zero are.
Why do A-1 shows attract so many haters?
