Why do they even bother with episodes like this? Next to nothing fucking happened.
I actually agree with him, who cares about Shirou and Rin's love life ?
I'll take explosions above the shitty story anytime.
I even dare say every single minute without Gilgamesh strutting on the screen is a waste of time.
You know, people say Fate is just Naruto with sex, but then you get guys like this who moan on when it does stuff other than action.
You got more of Shirou's characterization, his relationship with Rin advanced, they teamed up with Lancer, info on Gil was given, particularly adding hints to his bigger plans, some nice stuff with Kuzuki and Archer that hinted at the larger message of the show, stuff with the pendant and Shirou was talked about, and it all wrapped up with setting up for a ton of action next episode.
You have to have some falling action and time for characters to act on things in a story, fucking adhd child.
If you want characters that you don't know teleporting from battle to battle, try DEEN's UBW film. It's more your style.
>who cares about Shirou and Rin's love life ?
This, Rin is a stupid mary sue and she is shit. If only they would have animated HF instead.
Could it be that they're running out of budget now?
It has nothing to do with whether I like action better than sex or romance (I don't), it's merely that action scenes are not cringeworthy compared to romance scenes. Because no matter how shitty the original material, actions scenes can be good, unlike romance.
>You got more of Shirou's characterization, his relationship with Rin advanced
I fucking hate Shirou, why should I care ?
>I fucking hate Shirou, why should I care ?
Sorry to break it to you, but UBW is pretty much entirely Shirou's story. There's no way you're going to enjoy this as a whole if you don't care about him.
I would have preferred it before Gil came
>Oh snap he is about to fire all those swords but damn Bahsakah is strong and fast what will happ-
Totally killed the build up for me
The relationship between Sakura and Shirou is miles better. This anon summarized their relationship nicely >>124587018
Are you serious?
Lancer vs Archer
Rin BTFO Caster
Better than HF, with
>hi I'm a massive slut I love cocks
>also boohoo I got raped pity me even though I'm an unrepentant serial killer
>I'm going to sleep for most of the route now
Anon please, only secondary faggots like Sakura.
Sakura being liked is something that only started to happen past 2012
>Shirou and Sakura's relationship
I'd rather watch paint dry.
Considering a lot of HF was about Shirou an Sakura's relationship and most of Rin and Shirou's romance scenes in UBW are just them getting flustered at eachother. That isn't much of a surprise
You almost had me there.
>Ugly, whining, passive aggressive slut with worms
>door mat personality at the best of times
>literally contributes nothing to her own route asside from being the damsel in distress plot devise
You crack me up
>Alliance with lanzah
>Direct indication of which-color-man is shirou
>Soichirou¡s intentions are full waifu mode
>Insight into Gil's noble phantasm and plan
Enough happened for a 25 minute ep you autistic fuck
Just based on reading threads, I don't get how Fate has fans.
>main material is a long as fuck VN
>but the girls are two that nobody likes and a twintail tsundere
>first route is generally agreed to be shit
>third route revolves around a character nobody likes
So that leaves only one third of a long ass piece of writing as generally enjoyed, which you have to slog through one of the aforementioned bad thirds to get to, and yet this is massively popular?
Rin and Shirou actually go through a lot of development. She's the only heroine who technically starts off as his enemy, and through the story they develop from that, to allies, to friends, to in a relationship. Hell, by the end they're planning their future together in London.
why didnt gil throw weapons at shirou when he was inside his reality marble?
Even Nasu doesn't think he did that right.
Shirou can spam swords too, and I think inside UBW they are even faster than GOB
I found the conversation between Shirou and Rin and the next one with Lancer really artificial but it's an issue that I have also with the VN, the problem with the first it's that ther's really nothing fucking wrong with how Shirou acted in that situation, who in his right mind wouldn't try to protect a child? One would say that she tried to kill him but Shirou had already forgived that, and then thers the conversation with Lancer
who makes no sense, first he's shaken with Illya's death and then, as if nothing had happened, he talks about don't touching his woman?
You're stupid, HF is very popular and Sakura has a ton of fans.
Fate isn't even a bad route, it just suffers because it's the first one and sets the framework for the other two to be as good as they are.
>>main material is a long as fuck VN
>>but the girls are two that nobody likes and a twintail tsundere
>>first route is generally agreed to be shit
>>third route revolves around a character nobody likes
You see, they all actually like all of those things, but they like to complain more
>Rin first episode
Strong independent woman who doesn't take shit from no one even Archer
Tsundere #25684 who gets flustered by anything that even hints romance even when she is in front of enemies
What the fuck happened?
Most sakurafags have proven to have better reading comprehension by being able to understand her character beyond her being a non-virgin.
