This is the best visual novel opening of all time.
It spoils a ton if it's your first play through, but it's a fantastic opening and captures the tone of what is about to be played.
The question though is, how will they do Heaven's Feel as a film? It's very long. Will they have to do it as a series of films?

She has a series of dreams throughout each night in her route, getting more graphic and graphic, about eating people mostly, one day she gets ripped in half by sword rains from the sky, and realizes "Oh shit, this wasn't a dream?"
Turns out she was slightly possessed in her sleep, kind of like what was alluded to in Tsukihime, but played straight.
Shiki kept thinking he was a vampire, but in reality SHIKI was a vampire, except for that time when Shiki was a vampire, or in the final route when Shiki murdered three people in a back alley and ran into SHIKI as they had coffee.
Fun part of that last sentence was that it was entirely correct.
>This is the best visual novel opening of all time.
Otherway around, Ilya even commented how the Black Grail was fuck more powerful and dangerous. White Grails are supposed to shut down functions on a daily basis to stay sane and safe. This shit grail made out of worms and ductape somehow turned out to be a thousand times stronger than a real one in some wierd ways. Even within a typhoon of seven heroic souls that are each worth about ten thousand normal souls, it retained its ego, it didn't have any of the safety features of the normal grail yet it just wouldn't break.
It's like how an old Nintendo system won't break worth shit compared to a far newer model.
It's like if you built a computer yourself out of twigs and tinfoil, and your friend got a top of the line Mac
Somehow the twig machine can run while it's on fire, fire only makes it stronger and improves the memory function, while the mac shut down on the third day due to downloading too many files.
Why does fire only make this computer stronger? How can it even upload to the internet? Where is it even plugged in?

>tfw rewrite does a better ubw route than the actual ubw itself
I like TM a lot but why does there always have to be like 6 Fate threads up at any given time?
But this seems to be the only TM thread around right now.
Because whenever anything is currently airing, fair weather fans don't ever check the catalog before posting their own thread up. Because "My thread is the most important, I want my question answered most, I don't want it lost in some other thread", or just because they legit did not check at all if there was another thread.
It's the same any time something is new airing, there will be a dozen threads up.
I just checked the catalog after reading the post, and depending on how you define "TM thread," there's between three and five.
This very thread is one of the ones that can be not a TM thread. In fact, most of the unambiguous TM threads are all dead on pages 6+.
It happens when anything gets really popular and newfags come in and make new threads.
Remember when the Naruto manga ended and the movie was announced? They had to make a fucking sticky to contain everyone.
Caren best girl.
Amazing taste, my dark skinned compatriot.
The video I have has 2 OPs in one. The one you just posted only has the first.
F/HA was filled with many mediocre scenes. When it was good it was amazing, but a good chunk of the time it was just 'okay'.
Think we will get a hollow at ataxia adaptation?
Deen unfortunately already made fate , ufotable are making UBW and HF. So we will have had all routes animated. They can ride on the hype after the HF movies are released and announce hollow ataraxia.
I mean, if prisma Ilya can get 3 seasons (and I'm pretty sure they confirmed 3rei would get an adaptation as well) then I'm sure somebody would like a HA anime
>Why does fire only make this computer stronger? How can it even upload to the internet? Where is it even plugged in?
All of his scenes were great.
I doubt it will happen, or if it does they'd cut a lot of the SoL stuff and focus on the night stuff. Still would be nice to see the finale animated though
I don't think ufotable should animate F/HA to be honest. They should just work on Tsukhime or F/A or something that actually need big a big budget.
A studio like A1-Pictures would work better. Focus on the good slice of life scenes, both serious and comedy, and then just mix it in with the Bazett stuff. With a proper director it could work out well.
They could make it a movie and only adapt the Bazett/Avenger parts, but that also wouldn't make much sense.
Now that I think about it, the story is reliant on preserving the avenger twist (which is why none of the OPs posted have a single shot of him despite him being arguably the protagonist), it wouldn't work in a visual medium for the same reason Thief of Time wouldn't work in a visual medium.
I'm looking forward to whatever OP they'll make for the Tsukihime remake. Based on what we saw for the original Melty Blood and Actress Again, I can imagine it being pretty different from anything Fate's had.
Also, I really wanna see Shiki's Nanaya taijutsu animated. Based on what we know of the Nanaya arts, Shiki's knife skills should be even more impressive than Ryougi's.
It's possible, but I don't think it would be best to do as a weekly series. Just do it as a series of OVAs, starting off with random SoL shit and gradually letting the plot come to light.
Or, hell, that could still be done as a TV series. Make it just a bunch of SoL skits with no explicit mention to how much time has passed or that a time loop is even going on. Just Shirou having a vague feeling of deja vu, until Bazett starts showing up and the plot forms.
>worse than SHAFT
I'm saying ufotable is the best studio ever but at least they actually animate dynamic movement more than once every 5 years and don't use the same tired ass angles for everything.
I said ufotable mostly because they are making UBW and HF and the vita ops for HA are made by them I think?
But yeah It doesn't have t be them, I'd support A1 pictures making It as well actually.
Maybe the main show could be the serious scenes while they could package the sol as ovas in the BD. even then I wouldn't really be satisfied, hollow ataraxia is more mellow and I don't want a super serious no fun allowed adaptation of it either.
To be honest I hyped myself up for the fights, and was really disappointed.
They look flashy and nice, but their choreography is absolutely terrible. Honestly, F/Z had better fights.
I guess I'll just rewatch KnK instead
I can't wait for the finale
>Here I come King of Heroes, do you have enough weapons in stock?

Getting her eyes slashed and the heart surgery will be enough.
At the very least Shaft will shit can detail in order to produce fluidity when they want to. You can see it in Madoka. You can see it in Monkey tossing Koyomi around by his entrails. Fuck you can see it in Arakawa Under the Bridge.
Ufotable instead sticks to their guns and throws fluid looking CGI effects on top of largely static character's.
This is really new to digitally produced anime and why it sticks out to me and why it irks me so much. I have some Stockholm syndrome for cut shots, toei posing, sudden QUALITY when it's time to move a bit, or (as shaft likes to still do) silhouetting.
They do what multi hundred episode shounen outings do these days, toss a bunch of cg over characters that aren't really moving.
It's been a while but I believe so.
No, she left it on Earth after dying on a hill. It would make sense that she would utilize it's power but the sheathe should have stayed when she magically dispersed when the war was over.
Should Lancer take Bazett's Fragarach just because it's his?
Labyrinth's in a place with no true concept of space or time. If anyone could really comprehend the concept enough, I'm sure they could do a lot with it.
Far side of the Moon is very loose with its interpretation of "Space", since originally its not supposed to have such a thing. Everything is sort of thrown together chaos compared to the near side.
Near side of the Moon is structured towards human thought and interaction, so everything has to fit the human concepts regularly. It's like how humans aren't supposed to go in the Throne since it also lacks time and form, but if the Throne made a special human seating area, it would make that area fit human concepts.
SHAFT op sort of captured that idea of "Form without meaning" in some ways. Everything is just strange like you shouldn't be here.
Don't worry we will get the superior route soon.
I can't wait to see all the new stuff they've added. Plus, it's going to be the first time we see Berserker actually going berserk animated.
If I click on that spoiler and a dead meido shows up I'm cursing you and your waifu to the darkest and shittiest level of hell
Fragarach had multiple owners. Lancer doesn't have sole ownership of it.
Shirou gave the scabbard back to Saber. It belongs to her, it's something that was granted to her by the planet itself. It's not something anyone but her should have, and she alone is the only one capable of using it properly. It doesn't matter what you think of it. Avalon, on a conceptual level, is Saber's property.
This guy is more bro, and a better Assassin.
How many people did Fake Assassin even Assassinate, because the answer is zero. Except for maybe a bird once.
Birds aren't people, don't try to bullshit me otherwise.
You're forgetting that they were sparrows with A rank agility.
>Can you keep up with me?
>It's not 'can you keep up with me?'
>You keep up with me!
Man this guy, meets you out in the hallway on occasions, just ends up greeting you normally and asks how you're holding up as long as his master didn't explicitly tell him to kill you.
He's a red version of Cu Choo, just wants to have fun fighting and shit.
Where did you get this image? It's nice.
He can turn invisible/untraceable from all senses at will, so I'm inclined to say yes.
Just goes "poof", you forgot I existed for a moment due to denial of senses, but now I'm over here.
Gilgamesh tries his usual "Cut girl in half" trick, she gets back up and goes "I'm Wolverine bitch", and swallows him into another dimension while still piecing herself back together. Hobbles home and goes to sleep.
So I've got a question about Bazett. She was in a time loop for god knows how long; living the same four days over and over trying to win the grail war with a shit-tier servant and her wits. We see throughout the story she slowly does make progress, and figures out various ways to beat servants and try and handle things, but ultimately, it never ends up being enough.
My issue though is rather with the mechanics themselves. You see in just about any time loop story one of the staples is that the protagonist usually ends up bettering themselves in some way, if not due to boredom, than due to making it easier to achieve their goal. Bazett was under the impression that she could have ended the loops basically any time she wanted right? She just wanted to keep on trying and complete her mission. She didn't know anything about the extra fluff, like how she was dead, and it was all a dream. So regarding this, why exactly did the story not show her training to better herself? Learning new things, new abilities, new magic. Whatever. I can't help but think of the movie Edge of Tomorrow, which had a protagonist who, basically at any point could have stopped his looping, but had a goal, and to accomplish that, he used his time to train and become stronger.
I mean with all the time in the world you'd think she would have naturally reached this conclusion at some point. Am I just misremembering something?
Surely though at some point you'd realize that that's like hitting a brick wall. Why not go through books? Learn new techniques? I mean theoretically she had all the time to do this.
You can't learn new magic or abilities just like that. I'm not even sure she can leave Fuyuki to pick stuff up.
Also, Bazette is already awesome. The guy from All you need is kill started off useless.
>You can't learn new magic or abilities just like that
Well that's the point, she had time. And it's not like Fuyuki was deprived of resources. Two of the great magus families were there, plus a bunch of other folk who must have had something.
And while yeah, Bazett is great, but did she not at some point think that maybe just taking the servants head on might not have been as efficient as searching for another method?
Learn what? She's already one of the best martial artists in the franchise so far, and mastering new spells would have taken fucking forever. And it's not like she's a novice. If she were a complete amateur, she would have shown steady improvements, but she's not. She's been at this shit for years, so it's not as if she would have shown significant improvement just by looping a few times. She's not like Shirou, who started out as a novice and made significant progress as his story went on. Any real advancement would have taken years for her. She's far past the stage where she'd show significant improvement after just a month or two of practice. Just slowly working through the loops was already testing her patience. She didn't even WANT to be looping in the first place, but she needed to do so in order to survive.
She managed to make steady progress as the loops continued, and she improved as she went on.
You can't steal Noble Phantasms and it's hard to steal mystic codes. Lets not even get into trying to use another family's secrets within 4 days.
In any case, what do you propose could be useful against, lets say Berserker, within Fuyuki that Bazette could use?
I just think not looking for another method at any point is a little ridiculous. I mean that's practically a staple in these stories, right? The hero bangs their head against a wall for so long, and then they back off for a bit and look for another approach.
How long was she looping in the first place? I mean alone we know each loop is four days; give or take if she dies before that. She was already investing a hefty amount of time into this task.
>use another family's secrets within 4 days
Well it's not "within four days", it's within an infinite amount of time looped in a four day period. It's a little bit different.
And you know, I'm not sure about the specifics, but I know that personally, at some point I'd get a little tired of just dying to these people, and try and figure if there might be some other way. It just seems like a natural conclusion, but I didn't really see Bazett get to that.
I'm more surprised that Bazett didn't go insane from the brutal deaths she suffered through each loop. In one she got gale borg'd, in another she got excailblasted, through It's impressive she even managed to push Saber into using it, in other Beserker crushed her and in another one Rider went crazy and maimed her to death.
By using another Family's secrets I mean you have to hunt down the relevant tool, pick it up, override the safeties then make yourself the master within those 4 days.
Then do it again the next loop.
Again, how do you beat Berserker?
How you beat Berserker or what exactly she does isn't my point. My point is that you'd think that after repeatedly getting brutally murdered, you'd stop for a minute and ask yourself, "am I doing this incorrectly?"
I mean this guy makes a fair point. >>124010361
>I just think not looking for another method at any point is a little ridiculous.
Wasting time looking for an alternative method that wouldn't significantly bolster her chances was pointless. Let me explain to you just how ridiculous your scenario is here.
First off, improving her martial arts is meaningless. She is never going to beat a Servant in a straight fight no matter how hard she tries, so forget that. It's a futile endeavor no matter how much time she has.
So then, there's the other thing you mentioned: learn new spells. Okay, first off. Do you understand how long it takes even skill Magi to come up with and master new arts? CREATING a new spell could easily take decades. MASTERING it could take more. Most Magi inherit multiple lifetimes worth of research through their Thaumaturgical Crests, and spend the entirety of their own lives expanding on and improving it. What you're suggesting is that she come up with her own first generation thaumaturgy and master it. That could take YEARS.
Then, the other thing you mentioned, stealing techniques from the Tohsaka, Makiri or Einzberns. Again, learning that shit could take years, and there's the possibility that she wouldn't even be compatible with it, and she'd have the disadvantage of lacking the proper Crest to go with it, so she'd have to start everything from scratch.
Either way, she'd, at best, with several years' worth of effort, obtain the equivalent of a first generational craft. First generation ANYTHING is gonna be shit. And the last thing she wants is to spend several lifetimes' worth of time learning that shit, especially when you consider that she can't actually keep anything concrete.
Third, even if she COULD get something decent out of it, it still wouldn't be worth shit against most Servants.
What Bazett was doing, basically save-scumming and memorizing enemy patterns and abilities, was literally the most efficient method available to her.
>theoretically infinite time loop
It was breaking down. Avenger showed signs of this while having his vision become more "cracked" as the loops continued, not to mention the creatures terrorizing Fuyuki at night.
Well I'd think it'd be a fairly important loop to show. Say she takes a loop off to figure things out. It shows her doubt, the strain she's going through, whether she's wondering if what she's doing is worth it. As it's shown she just kind of is constantly at it, and I find that a little questionable. You'd think at some point there would be a scene or two where this comes into play.
Great, incorporate that in. It would give a hint at the overarching situation.
It would be pointless showing such a loop. She would spend time considering what you keep mentioning and then realize it would be futile, see>>124010467
And just continued doing what she already was.
She can't go talk to the other mage families, to her they're all enemies she must defeat. She slowly makes progress, eliminating all her opponents except for the einzberns, you learn that in the excalibur vs fragarach scene.
Learning new types of magecraft was not an option, she doesn't have years of time to study something to end up like a first generation mage.
Learning new martial arts won't work either, she doesn't have the 25 years of being raised as a tool like kuzuki. She doesn't have a servant to spar with like shirou did. Even if she did learn new stuff she wouldn't match a servant.
Verg avesta + Fragarach may not win everything but it's her only way to beat out servant/master combos because her servant was garbage
Okay this is a big post, but I think you and I are looking at this from two different directions. Whether or not any of these attempts would bear fruit is kind of negligible. It's about not constantly slamming your face into a brick. You'd think at some point you would look for something else.
It's like the entire core of the time loop premise. Using your ability to explore different approaches and scenarios. That's what the main part of the VN is about, but I find it weird that we get no acknowledgment of Bazett doing so other than trying to figure out in the moment ways of beating servants.
So let me just ask you, do you think it's a natural thing that, if you're stuck in a situation where you are dying every couple of days, you wouldn't stop at some point to try and assess things? Look around? Clear your head?
I mean it just doesn't seem like a human reaction to not do so.
Shinji is the fucking best.
>Best bro's with Shirou
>Fights thugs with him back to back
>Shits on anyone who tries to take advantage of Shirou's kindness
Because Bazett's not an idiot. Any second-rate Magus would know that trying to create and master a new spell would be pointless in the situation she's in.
You really need to think about this from her shoes: This was the only option she had. She understood from the outset that learning new spells or techiques was entirely meaningless because she's an experienced, proper Magus. She understands what works and what doesn't because she's a Magus. Even fucking Shirou would probably go "No, that's definitely not gonna work".
And the entire reason she even tried to talk to the Einzberns near the end in the first place was precisely because she was getting tired of this shit.
Now thats my girl, i want to titfuck her so hard and give a good hammering if you know what i mean
>Because Bazett's not an idiot. Any second-rate Magus would know that trying to create and master a new spell would be pointless in the situation she's in.
Okay you are really latching on to the statement I made in my original post. It's not exactly about becoming more powerful, it's about exploring methods of reaching your goal, or trying to understand why you are trying to reach this goal, or anything.
See what's bothering me is that basically from the outset of the story, she concludes what she has to do is fight all the servants and claim the grail. Never once does she really realize she has, at least from what she can grasp at the time, almost infinite possibilities with this ability to loop.
No, she doesn't. Not really.
Avenger laid down all the ground rules for her from the beginning. He tells her that in order to escape the loop, she HAD to obtain the Grail. Since he was the one who created the loop in the first place, she'd kinda have to take his word for it. If she wanted the loop to stop, she had to win the Grail War. That was the only option available to her.
Infinite options? Of course not. She couldn't even leave Fuyuki. She was trapped in that city. She couldn't contact anyone. She had no resources, and any resources she collected would disappear in the following loop. All she had was Fragarach and Avenger. She couldn't hope for anything else.
How the fuck do visual novels sell at all? I've played through g-string, steins;gate, ever17, and katawa shoujo. The first 2 were ok at their best parts but barely worth spending the 20+ hours on.
Can't believe japs buy that garbage. I could barely stand playing it for free
She worked for the Magus Association as an Enforcer, and it looks like she ends up quitting that job. She didn't really like that job. She only took it because it was the only thing she was good at at the time.
Plot hole. There's an entire plot point about Caster thinking she's the one that killed him (but she's not sure). Then it gets dropped never to be addressed again.
Maybe Zouken is a better magus than her and used some trick (yeah sure).
I know, I was saying I didn't remember what happened in HF.
That's the Fate route, Caster got blown the fuck out by Gil and I think they go into a narrative on Kuzuki attacking him even through he knows it's pointless. in fact, doesn't he do the same to Archer in UBW? For an emotional dead guy he seemed pretty damn devoted to Caster.
>He tells her that in order to escape the loop, she HAD to obtain the Grail
Okay well that confuses me somewhat. If I remember right Avenger at several points eggs her on that she could stop.
Even still, I think you are looking at this from an extremely narrow minded point of view. Going off of the theory that there were 100% zero resources in the entire city of Fuyuki that could benefit her goal, why didn't she try and come to know and understand her opponents more? Get intel from them? Learn about the masters, the servants, how they tick. Hell, potentially get their help in doing so? Again, it just seems like from A to B she attacks other servants and repeatedly dies until she figures out a way to beat them.
It just seems really bizarre and an outright inhuman reaction. Wouldn't you at some point want to understand the people who are killing you?
You have to remember that Bazett is kinda a hard head and on top of that she's socially awkward. Honestly she'd be easy pray for people like Rin and IIya if they knew how naive she was under that block headed strength.
That's exactly what she was doing?
She challenged the other Masters and Servants and got a feel for their abilities and styles. Little by little, she'd learn everything she could about those enemies and she'd use that knowledge in subsequent loops to finally defeat them. She managed to defeat multiple enemies with this method.
The main problem arose when she realized that no matter how hard she tried, the four day limit was just way too fucking limiting. No matter how well she knew her opponents, trying to win against all seven Masters and Servants within just four days was almost impossible. It was extremely difficult for her to get past all her enemies while minimizing damage to both herself and Avenger as much as possible. The was also the added handicap of not having enough rounds for Fragarach. Even if the rounds renewed themselves for each loop, the maximum number of uses she had with it would never be more than three. And she couldn't exactly depend on Avenger to defeat anyone, since he's shit.
That's when she decided to approach the Einzberns in order to get a broader picture of what was going on, and that's when things start going off the rails.
>Honestly she'd be easy pray for people like Rin and IIya
Yeah i know a certain someone who would fit right in that bill
>That's exactly what she was doing?
She, like I previously mentioned, fought the masters until she could beat them, but why didn't she get to know them more? Like, as in, talk to them? We know for a fact that plenty of them wouldn't have been hostile. You could use this learn about their quirks, their personalities, their styles, hell if they're good enough people, actually get help from them in some way.
Again, it just seems like all she did was fight; never once opening her eyes to the countless possibilities she had with her ability to loop.
>looks like shit
It's animated by White fox, so obviously it could look better.
The VN art itself looks great.
>I don't even know what that is.
Then refrain from posting your overly judgmental subjective opinion, unless you know and have read what you're criticizing.
Otherwise you look like a moron spouting shit when you don't even know what you're spouting shit at, as you admitted in your post.
Because she was a Master and they regarded her as their enemy. The entire point of the Holy Grail War was to have the Masters kill each other. Everyone with the exception of Shirou and Not!Ilya wanted to kill her. And no idiot Master would let an enemy get close to them without a very good reason to.
That's all she knows, and all she was trained for. And we did see her seek help in another way that wasn't fighting, when she finally decided to go speak to Ilya, which she actually couldn't really do before since he'd just attack as soon as she entered the forest.
So you think there would be zero situations at all where Bazett could have come into communication with the masters and get a dialog going? I find that hard to believe coming from an author who creates alternate universes for the slightest thing.
I don't know. I understand that she was socially retarded, but if you were fighting the same people day in and day out, wouldn't you want to come to understand them more? Through just basic curiosity? What this dude with the red hair light? How about the guy in blue spandex? Why is the acting like she's her master's wife? Wouldn't you have these questions at some point?
As much as Nasu likes alternate universes, you have to keep in mind he also likes absolutes within them.
Kotomine is dead is such an example and arguably so is 'There is only one Archer'.
Alternate universes are irrelevant in this case. All of the Masters and Servants in the night portions of the four-day loop were based off of participants in the Third Heaven's Feel, which was the one Angra Mainyu was originally summoned for. The sisters who summoned two aspects of the same Servant, the midget-Assassin and "Ilya" were all based off of the participants of the fourth war. Aside from Shirou, whose confrontation with Bazett was one of the points where things really started going off the rails, as well as "Ilya", who had already dropped out from the war at that point as did her original counterpart in the Third War, there probably wasn't any other Master who would have considered teaming up with Bazett.
>What this dude with the red hair light?
She only directly met Shirou twice before the final confrontation.
>How about the guy in blue spandex?
She only met Lancer once throughout any of the loops, and by that point, she didn't WANT the loop to end anymore.
>Why is the acting like she's her master's wife?
She never met Caster.
She tries to speak to Rin and Shirou, it goes on for a little bit but Rin gets hostile, tells Shirou to stay back and gets her circuits going
Shirou notes that he and rin were fucked if they fought too, even he could tell that bazett was really powerful compared to them
>not enjoying the journey more than the result
Yeah, I remember that scene. I don't know, I just think there should have probably been more like it.
I mean Nasu seems really fond of the whole time loop premise; he's used it repeatedly, with two whole VNs revolving around it, but I find that he doesn't exactly use it to its full potentially. Shiki and Shirou (for all intents and purposes) are unaware for the most part that they're looping, which provides its own set of uses when setting up scenes and SoL segments, but it also cuts in a bit on the fun. Bazett was in an interesting position where she fully understood she was repeating the same four days, and the possibilities with that concept weren't really utilized.
Oh god no. You are probably remembering the highlights more than the low points, but HA was full of really low points. As a fandisc it's good, but it lives almost entirely in the shadow of its main game.
Figure shit out
>It was Caster
>Why would she have rule breaker out then
>Why was blood
>She had to have, she was a bitch
When she was half mind-broken and still reeling from it she said directly she didn't do it, but if she had realized how this was going to turn out she would have and saved herself the pain. She was in no position where she would have lied there, she absolutely didn't in that position. In fact she was too honest with the second part of that comment.
In her mind-broken state Caster committed suicide by Saber, as there was nothing left to live for, while Saber misunderstood Caster's actions.
As they were about to leave Shirou noticed it felt like someone was watching them all along in that room. Hassan was born a scene earlier, and later on it was noted that Hassan was there at that time watching them in that moment. He mentioned something that could only come up if he was watching them at that time.
Caster while fearing the Shadow set up any number of barriers and watched them shattered, her guard dog destroyed, tried protecting Kuzuki from close range, only to watch him explode right in front of her by the servant just born as Zouken took Caster's corpse right after that.
Team Caster was mutilated by team wormpire. It was not Shadow that killed him either; it's noted it's method of killing is very different. Either there would be no body left, or it would have just drained the life force basically entirely in a forceful manner without killing the target. It was noted Shadow avoided killing anyone as it feared Gilgamesh, until it dealt with things that could rival its power. Up until a point Shadow only drained people, or fed off leftovers.
Only Hassan could have killed him in that moment, he was in the position, the reason, and it was left pretty clear with events that came later.
Just because they don't point everything out overt doesn't make it a plot hole.
>Posting a cap out of context
>Not posting the lines that immediately followed it where Caster denies it, but says nothing matters anymore even though she didn't do it.
Why do people do this? Just spread things based on an earlier assumption in a scene even if it was cleared up in that same scene.
Whether or not they were based off of particular people isn't the point. To Bazett they'd just be the folk she'd been killing or getting killed by. It seems very natural to me to want to learn more about them if I were dealing with them on a daily basis.
She's a profession killer by trade, and she eventually managed to defeat most of the enemies she came across, so there was no point in doing so.
When she actually decided that things couldn't keep going this way any longer, she went straight to the Einzberns in order to get some answers. Then she went to the Emiya residence. And finally, she got answers out of Avenger. When this happened, she no longer had any interest in leaving the loop, so there was zero point whatsoever in getting to know the other Masters.
Bazett's a bit too efficient to do what you're suggesting. She'd already successfully defeated several Masters by the time she began to have doubts, and once those doubts surfaced, she went straight to the core parties and quickly got all the answers she needed. What you're suggesting never would have worked given her methods and actions.
>So,when is the true sequel to Fate/Stay Night anyway
There are three routes to F/SN; Nasu doesn't do "This is the only true one canon sequel because this is the only route that counts" type of shit. If he ever does a continuation then its for every route, like Ataraxia or Kagetsu.
He considers a story finished once its done though, Shirou's story ended as of F/SN, people that think it needs a sequel are a bit foolish in that way. Any Fate that has came out beyond that has been someone elses story.
They can't keep going with Shirou's story and say "This is the one true canon route, this is the one he ended up on because its the sequel", like some fans want. Say what you will about Nasu, but he's pretty fair, he doesn't fuck over one group of fans for another like that.
If he made a sequel that followed one route, you know that group of fans would suddenly become assholes "This is the real and true route now".
Because of that fact, a story is finished when it is, and he doesn't play favorites. He's not giving a route priority over others. Not writing a continuation for one route super above others.
Even Melty only follows a joke ending, Sacchin's normal ending. Which doesn't favor anyone.
It's a little bit different when you're dealing with the same people over and over. You're not just killing random targets, you're killing folk you're dealing with constantly. That has to worm its way into your head in ways that probably no one really understands because the whole concept is pretty impossible to begin with.
And while yeah, she did start to communicate right at the end of the story, I guess I just kind of wish some of that would have been expanded or happen sooner. Or have her really do anything with her situation other than constantly fight. It seems kind of like a waste. It doesn't help that I found her scenes to ultimately be the most enjoyable in the VN, so I wouldn't have minded more. I'd take one Bazett segment over a dozen SoL cooking scenes.
Actually, technically, Kagetsu Tohya kinda did that.
One of the side stories, A Story for the Evening, is a direct sequel to Akiha's True End. To date, it's probably the only direct sequel any route's ever gotten. I suppose Talk. and Prelude might count as sequels to Arcueid's True End as well.
The entirety of Melty Blood is after Sacchin's route.
You'll also notice that different side stories were sequels to different routes. Like that one side story where Hisui becomes passive aggressive as fuck because Shiki didn't take her out on a date.
Simultaneously after every route, despite how much of a question this is in some ways. But we know it's kind of fanservice like that, and don't question it too hard.
Like I said, Bazett's personality and methods make your suggestion impossible. She's socially awkward and kind of a loner (though not by choice). And the moment she DID try to talk, she used the most direct routes possible so she quickly got all the answers she needed.
Bazett's just too efficient and straightforward. When she decides that her primary method isn't working, she'll immediately go for the next-most direct possible routes. She was never gonna lollygag around with the standard participants. First she'd go directly after the Einzberns, then she went directly after the Emiyas, and finally she went directly after the one who's responsible for the loops in the first place.
They don't really specify too much shit there, so they allow you to assume what you will. Shiki gets to know Arc in other routes as well, you could even bullshit he met her after the far side routes eventually as well.
Gets to know her in Ciel and Sacchin's ending as well, so you see it's not 100% at least.
That was mostly a joke. Chances are, if we do get Satsuki's route with the remake, the endings will be True and Good (while Melty supposedly followed Normal), or we'll get Normal and it won't at all resemble Melty Blood.
Actually, Satsuki's whole thing is "Loss Without Gain" so chances are we won't get a Good ending, unless it's Good for everyone but Satsuki. Like how Ciel Good isn't actually that great for Ciel.
I mean if you need to say "Could" then you already realize how it "could" be any of them. Because it "could", it isn't "surely", thus you get how this sort of works.
Kind of like how Ataraxia ending isn't after any route.
Well it obviously couldn't be after Hisui's ending, since everyone's fucking dead, likewise chances are it's not after Akiha; you'd be stretching it pretty thin with Kohaku too. Really the only viable options I can really think of are Arc Good and Ciel Good
Yeah. It's actually impossible for Kagetsu Tohya to take place after any of the Far Side routes because he knows Arcueid. He only gets to know Arcueid in the Near Side routes.
>Well it obviously couldn't be after Hisui's ending, since everyone's fucking dead
Only ones we see in the real world are Arc and Shiki, neither of which are dead in any of those endings. Saying that "It can't be this because they're dead in the real world" is assuming a bit in a way. Nothing that isn't shown can't be used so much, Shiki doesn't talk about whether someone is dead or not in the outside world in the few times we see him in the real world. They can be alive again in the dream.
Not sure how to push that point enough to sink in, but lets say it followed Hisui's Normal ending. Lets say he got to know arc later through some coincidence there later as she was still in town somehow, maybe Akiha or Kohaku are dead, now he didn't say anything about them being alive or dead so much in the real world segments perhaps, so its left open entirely. If something isn't stated, it isn't proof of anything. Even if he imagines them alive in the dream, it isn't proof of much.
Although if they were following a Hisui ending it would be Good ending, as clearly they did that in one of the Ten Nights stories, just like they did with Akiha's True ending.
So there's almost no way they would be going with the ending where everyone is dead in the first place, they'd go with the better ending.
That's completely impossible.
The prologue, which takes place before the dream, has him meet up with Arcueid, and he also meets Arcueid again after he wakes up.
So it could only take place in either Arcueid Good or Ciel Good. Most likely Arcueid Good.
>There is nothing that humans can’t realize as long as it lies within the scope of human imagination.
>Because whatever kind of illusion it is, however much of a pipe dream it is, there is a way to experience it.
Possibility is a bigger thing than people realize, rather than "That's impossible".
Yeah. As already stated, the only possible ending Kagetsu Tohya can take place after is Arcueid Good.
Do note, however, that Melty Blood actually references Kagetsu Tohya, and Len has a contract with Shiki in that continuity. But Satsuki's also alive in that continuity, which contradicts what was stated in Kagetsu Tohya.
It's. Really confusing.
>Satsuki's dead in Kagetsu Tohya. Absolutely dead. It's even stated that the dead cannot show up in the dream world,
So then we can come to the conclusion that Kagetsu Tohya does not happen in the timeline of any route we see, if Satsuki is dead but Shiki knows Arc.
That just means that something vaguely resembling Kagetsu Tohya also happens after Satsuki's route.
It's more like when you run a virtual machine normally it registers as having 100% processing power when fully utilizing its VCPU for regular functions.
Then a blue screen happens due to a memory leak or whatever you want and its VCPU registers as having more than 100% usage while the real CPU uses more than what it allocated to keep the VM running, even though it's crashed.
>the only possible ending Kagetsu Tohya can take place after is Arcueid Good.
Now that's way too damn narrow, originally even you were saying Ciel's Good end.
Several of the ten nights still take place after different heroine scenario.
>HF is considerably longer than UBW
>has a lot of crucial infodumping that requires more time to adapt
>it will get condensed into one movie
This is going to be a bigger trainwreck than DEEN's UBW movie.
So in HA
>Avanger keeps Bazett alive
>Caren finds her
>heals her and leaves her in the mansion where she found her
>Avanger initiates the dream loop
>Caren is unaffected since she wasn't in the 5th war
>Caster and Illya are the only ones who know something is up
>Avanger becomes Bazett's arm?
So why did Caren do it? Just to calm the Angry Manjew?
It's obvious there'll be more than one movie.
If they somehow fuck it up though, why worry? UBW got a full series four years after the DEEN trainwreck. You know you'll get a full adaptation at some point.
She comes back, that doesn't mean she won't again. Shiki is still dead in True so if she stayed at the castle for a few months doing whatever she did in Arc Good it'd be gravy
Because she leaves Misaki after Arcueid True and goes to sleep forever in Millennium Castle Brunestud.
Satsuki disappears in Arcueid's and Ciel's routes.
Right, Ciel Good's a possibility too.
The Ten Nights of Dream aren't actually necessarily related to the dream. Several are just parody stories, and any story involving SHIKI or Nrvnqsr cannot take place in the dream world. A Story for the Evening is a "real life" event that happens after Akiha True, and has nothing to do with the main story.
The only TNoD stories that are directly related to the dream world are Nanako SOS and Crimson Moon.
Your example is "It's crashed but its still going in some burnt way, nothing too special really", the example needs to be "This is a miracle ten times over into the realms of bullshit as it ends up working far better than even the thing specifically designed by this from someone that actually knew what they were doing. Instead some guy that knew nothing about making grails ended up making a super computer out of scraps in his basement by mistake. That even if it looks and acts cobbled together, still ends up into the realms of bullshit as even the white grail admits that this shit shouldn't be possible".
>Because she leaves Misaki after Arcueid True and goes to sleep forever in Millennium Castle Brunestud.
or she just awakes a week later, because nothing really changed between the scenario where she got her energy back from Roa other than Shiki calling out for her at one point.
>Satsuki disappears in Arcueid's and Ciel's routes.
It's been a long time since I read KT, but I remember Shiki talking about Satsuki as if he knew about her becoming a vampire, and as if he killed her himself, without ever actually saying those words.
UBW is actually the best route for a speedblitz movie adaption since it's the shortest and has the least worldbuilding and huge lore reveals. The latter half is basically a boss rush.
>when she is supposed to hate demons.
You'd be assuming a bit if you believed anyone in Fate is "Supposed to" based on how you first think of them
It's like saying "Kotomine is a priest, he's supposed to... love people and stuff" or something. Man everyone is warped here from what their motives would supposed to be if you used logic, and evil gets her off.
It's what I mean, people assume with the motive "supposed to" based on logic. When no one in this story follows such a thing. It's the reason everyone is some sort of contradiction.
Man, this really doesn't look that good at all. Everything about this OP's visuals just look painfully dated. I really wanna know what they were thinking during the screenplay process of making this OP.
Is there any Servant or Master that Avenger could actually beat?
If I remember right this OP and the ED were the only new pieces of animation done for the OVAs; the rest was just edited footage of the series that compressed everything to just a little longer than the UBW movie. Sold as two different sets, of course.
So the mindset was probably them wanting to eek out as much of their license to the franchise as possible before TM dropped them.
Maybe he could kill Alice if her servant wasn't around and if she didn't have her prosthetics attached. Maybe. I still wouldn't bet on him though.
It's pretty cool.
She's a cyber ghost, so she has strange abilities like fluxing in and out of the world along with her servant on occasion. Rin also notes this shit is strange in the game. Teleporting around a bit.
Even wandering around the arena alone doesn't seem to get too much of her.
Actually you factor in the OP and EDs of the Reproduction set and I think this shit comes out to roughly 10 minutes longer than the UBW movie.
So yeah, DEEN was able to pull a UBW movie with the Fate route.
Why is Ilya so cute?
You have to change up the Shirous
No, she's there with CapSaba Shirou. You'll see Gil and Cu there as well, in their own capsules.
It's Marik. Avenger's appearance at least uses Shirou as a base, but Kotomine Shirou has absolutely nothing to do with Emiya Shirou.
This is the best VN opening of all time. Unquestionable in my measurement.
It's not even a particularly good VN, dry as hell and repetitious, but the OP is unbelievably good.
Depends on the tone. Would say This illusion, the new UBW opening and Another Heaven are the best ones, with the latter being more adapted to HF.
And frankly, it's doesn't spoils that much, I watched it before reading HF, and it fooled me more than anything.
> So Sakura will finally be revelant
> Gil in armor is back !
> More scenes with Caster without her coat ? YES.
> Oooh, seems like Lancer will finally have some battles onscreen besides against Archer/Saber.
> I don't know what the fuck is going on with Shirou but I'm hyped.
> Kotomine being evil as usual near the end
As long as there are TM series left to adapt, ufotable will continue to adapt them.
Besides, ufotable doesn't exactly have the best track record with non-TM series. For fuck's sake, they made Coyote Ragtime Show. Even after they found their calling doing TM adaptations, they went and did Gyo and it was horrible.
His body is made out of swords
His blood is of iron and his heart of glass
He survived through countless battles
Not even once retreating
Not even once being understood
He was always alone
Intoxicated with victory in a hill of swords
Thus, his life has no meaning
That body was certainly made out of swords
This is the literal version.
I hope they leave out the bad guest written romcom. Have the Shirou side focus on him trying to figure what the fuck is going on, and only include the scenes that help characterization rather than parody it.
Shut up. My dick demands it
I am, at my core, a sword.
My body is steel, and my blood is fire.
I've endured pain to forge countless weapons
Never knowing death, but never living life.
I've withstood pain to hone my craft,
But my hands will never hold anything,
As if I were made out of swords.
