Those who don't know.
F/SN was released exactly 10 years ago today (January 30, 2004).

The one of the few franchise that /a/ gets in extremely passionate discussions/arguments about even though all the shit it causes.

If only Nasu knew what he was going to cause.

It actually bothers me a bit. There are a lot of old series /a/ turns their nose up at and doesn't discuss because "there's nothing new to talk about," yet for all these years, even when there was nothing new in the franchise, it's been a cinch to make a Fate thread, day in day out. Even a thread with a brainless OP like "TOHSAKA SUCKS OLD MEN'S COCKS OHOHOHOHO" gets 300+ posts of the same stupid discussion we've seen a million times before. Why is that?

To be fair, there are a few reasons for this.
About every year or so there has been a little bit of something new and fresh introduced in to the franchises, in the form of extra/side material and or spinoffs or something. So every year there has been new things to bicker about.

Though, the most prominent reason is probably that people can never agree on any interpretation when it comes to F/SN.

Even with F/Z the show managed to avoid most of the casualfag SAO/SNK tier fans. You know, the sort of greasy weeaboo losers who go to western cons spouting the 5 words of Japanese they know.

Man, fate prisma Ilya ended, like, 4 months ago.
Also, there is the relatively recent daptation of fate/zero and the upcoming translation of F/HA (just 5 more years, it's closer then ever), and fate/extra and CCC if you are talking about the fate franchise as a hole, not no mention the overly hyped ufoteble anime this year.
That's only on the fate series, if we include all type-moon universe, there is also the constantly released KnK movies, with the most recent released a few months ago (and we are still waiting for the BD) and the tsukihime remake announced for never
>>
>>101207700
Like another anon said it's very reminiscent of a detective novel. Tsukihime is much darker than fate in that the MC is constantly losing his mind. I would say the characters are also slightly more interesting.

On the other hand the battles are pretty boring, the visuals are dated as fuck and there is less exposition so the world isn't as fleshed out.
>>
>>101207895
This. Though I would argue that Tsukihime is more adult. The H scenes are laughably juxtaposed to the shounen level narrative.

What do you call a seinen with all the tropes of a shounen, but just more mature?

>>101209143
Seinen.
>>
>>101209054
>>101209038
This.
>>
>>101209143

Why, I'd call that shounen for adults.

Because that's what it would be. Yes, they're demographics and not genres. But if I made The Smurfs, added some technobabble, and said that it was actually for grown-ups, it wouldn't magically make it a grown-up show.
>>
>>101209143
>>101209276
I'd say that fate and UBW are shounen and HF and F/Z are seinen, simple as that.
>>
>>101208973
>>101209038
No.
Nasu himself has said that Fate is shonen.

You can have shonen types of stories for the seinen demographic.

You call them MANCHILDREN. What made it seinen were the sex stories. Outside of that, if you read Realta Nua, it was no more different than shounen stories.
>>
>>101200930
The reason we keep talking about this shit is because Type-Moon doesn't answer anything
>>
>>101209143
Blood is just a shock value. It doesn't really determine the target audience. For an example, Shingeki no Kyojin is a shounen manga because it's serialized in a shounen magazine.

Although, personally I tend to call shows with lots of blood and shounen heroes borderline seinen.
>>
>>101209898
When those "sex stories" are a fundamental part of the plot, like the sakura backstory in HF, I think that it can't be categorized as a shounen.
I agree as for fate and UBW though.
>>
>>101208973
>>101208847

What is the age demographic for seinen?

Some people say 18-24, some say 18-30 and others say 18-40.
>>
>>101210720
I've always felt that the most prominent factor in designating the appropriate demography should be the certain tones the story has.

ie. If it leans more towards mature tones, then it's seinen. (philosophy, politics, etc.)

18-40
>>

I can't wait for the new adaptation, just so I can see how much screentime she doesn't get. ;_;

>>101210720
idk, what is there after seinen? if nothing, I don't think there is a upper age limit.
>>
>>101210720
Seinen is 18 or older. It literally means "adult". 80 year-olds are adults. 18 year-olds are adults.

Sure other people might be able to enjoy it but that's the demographic it's marketed and produced for.

>>101211046

When the author of the series calls it a shonen, it's a shonen. Shonen is also a genre in Japan, not simply a demographic. It denotes stories that "shonens" would like.
>>
>>101211181
>Demographics don't mean shit about the content.
That doesn't even make sense, the target audience of a show is of that demographic especifically because of the content of it.
Note that it doesn't keep people from other age groups from reading it, just like adults can read shounen mangas, teens can read seinen (even if it's inapropriate or illegal), they're just out of the target audience.
>>
>>101211762
>It denotes stories that "shonens" would like.
Yes, by shonens they mean people between 11 and 17 yo. So it's a demographic.

>>101212143
18 to 24 covers another shonen category, called the young men. A simple change of one kanji.

And no, it's not simply a demographic.
If a shonen story, something that shonens would like, was aimed at the seinen demographic, then what?

It's still a shonen story that is aimed at the seinen demographic. Or you gonna tell me Nasu is a lying sack of shit?

I think that Nasu said that because 2/3 of the routes are flat out shounens. HF however, is not a shounen at all. It actually brings back a little of the tsukihime atmosphere.

And one thing that you're missing is that FSN has 3 different and mostly unrelated stories. While fate and UBW are clearly shounens, HF is not.
So it has 2 shonens stories and one seinen story, but they have to say that the whole game is a seinen because of HF.

yes and? if the backstory is given her feelings are totally justified.

the fact that she can change and become one of the most caring characters is what makes her the best. and she changes out of her own will. because she realises what is important to her and the ones she loves.

I saw a densest MC thread and kept seeing Shirou, so I wanted to see why he was considered so dense(and I had just finished up Hoshimemo around that time so I was looking for something else to read)

2007, When I saw a Melty Blood doujin of Len or Akiha I don't remember. I decided to check out Melty Blood and found out I had to read a visual novel.
Watched the Fate/Stay Night anime when it was airing. (Fell in love with Saber.)
I found out about about Kara no Kyoukai and was overwhelmed by the visuals.

Saber is best Fate. Maids, Akiha and Sacchin are best Tsukihime. Fujino is best KnK.

Tohsaka is best girl all around, she's a non generic tsundere, she's witty, brilliant, playful, talented etc etc.

Saber is best for Shirou because they find meaning with each other in their journey of being hero's

Sakura's smile is the one worth most protecting.

Sakura and Shirou are the most compatible as they're two broken people that can become whole when they're together.

Saber and Shirou according to Urobuchi are something similar to two war-buddies in some odd way, but he means it in a way that elicits closeness on the battlefield.

I disagree. I think she is rather what's breaks him because he not only throws away his ideals and dreams for her, but he's also ready to sacrifice others.

Shirou's ideals are probably impossible to ever achieve, but that shouldn't stop him from doing his very best and at least get as close as he can. He has ideals worth fighting for.

>>
>>101217031
So then there was a good chance the character redesign shit from that "source" was fake?
>>
>>101228974
He was already broken, and his ideals while not inherently wrong were another form of his sickness. In order to be reborn and once more be reborn as a normal human he first had to be broken down entirely on all fronts. Down to his ideas and his body itself, he had to break. Besides; you should be able to know that wasn't the authors intent there that she robbed him of his ideals. And despite his ideas breaking he picked the path there that Shirou should pick if he wanted to save anyone.

After all the moment that broke his ideals didn't have shit to do with Shadow, rather it was just a choice that came down to killing someone who was like a sister to him because she was going to participate in the grail war, someone might be hurt because she has a curse placed on her to fight seriously, so it's just easier to kill her before she potentially hurts someone which she might potentially do.

How the hell does that sound like the Shirou you desire here? That he must kill everyone who might eventually cause problems in the future no matter how long he's known them? If you stop to really look at it then you realize he made the right choice for his ideals there, even if it cost him his ideals in the same moment. That's why Kotomine quipped about how Shirou kept trying to have it both ways.

>>101230397
That's the thing, Anon. I don't like HF Shirou at all and I think that route is what breaks him no matter what he does at that point.

The ideal Shirou wants to succeed with is to save everyone without having to make sacrifices (except for personal ones). He doesn't want to be Kiritsugu who will kill the minority to save the majority, but instead, he wants to save them all. He wants everyone to be happy. He wants to be a superhero.

>>101231741
They are pretty much impossible to uphold, that's why they are ideals. However, even if those ideals are impossible, they motivate us to seek new paths that might not be visible at first. With a great deal of luck and much dedication, they might even become real one day.

>>
>>101231911
In MoS Shirou becomes a killing machine that murders the people he loves (Sakura, Ilya, Rin) just like Kiritsugu did. Shirou's ideal was to save everyone, so no matter which choice he makes, Shirou has to abandon his ideals. That was the point of HF.
>>
>>101231979
At least he won the Grail War by Himself and no Servant...somehow...Thats pretty badass compared to others...Exception being Sparks Liner High
>>
>>101232185
All you have is Kotomine telling Shirou that he will win with his mindset. You should take it with a large grain of salt. No mention is made of Gilgamesh, who Shirou has no way of defeating.
>>
>>101232185
Yeah, I doubt that very much. Kotomine is not exactly the most trustworthy guy around and Shirou's got fuck all in terms of resources in MoS.

>>101232021
And a point I dislike. Heck, it should even motivate him further to strive towards achieving his ideals since he would want to stop that from happening again. Just giving up because you weren't strong enough that time is a wierd thing to do for such a motivated and stubborn character like Shirou

Stopped reading right there.

His ideals saved him from the brink of death which he'd already accepted.
>>
>>101232454
Protecting Sakura while trying to prevent other deaths is the closest he can come to his ideals and it's what he does? What would you suggest?
>>
>>101231613
and in HF he picks the route that potentially might save everyone, even if it's a small failure in the end. He tries to save Sakura, he tries to save the people that might die, he tries to save them all, but the difference now is the priority. Before he could not put priority on life, but the second he has to sacrifice one to save another his ideals are broken. HF is just the practical application of his ideals route, because no matter what he'll eventually come to a choice like this down the road that's going to force him to sacrifice something in the end, and in that moment his ideals will die.
>>
>>101232594
Why would Kotomine give Gil to Shirou or help him in any other way? Shirou in MoS becomes what Kotomine hates the most, someone who had ordinary human happiness (the thing Kotomine has sought all his life without ever attaining it) and who cast it aside.
>>

Now go back and read the rest; his ideals aren't ultimately wrong but there is a sharp contradiction his ideals hold that will fuck him over in the long term. Rin doesn't have a hard time seeing it after spending just a bit of time with him, and as long as he holds his contradiction he will undoubtedly break. The methods he uses and his ideals towards saving people are an obvious form of the sickness, but saving people in itself is not wrong nor sick. It's just that the way he latched onto it like a newborn chick upon seeing Kiritsugu in the fire as it was all he had will eventually warp him.
>>
I like Shirou's Ideals and thus HF doesn't appeal to me as much as the previous routes.

It's not an Ideal because it's something you strive for and one day accomplish. It's an Ideal because it's something that can't be done, but should be.

Every action should be taken to that standard, where everyone can be happy. Doing anything less is a mistake. Failure's aren't okay, but they do happen but at the least they aren't mistakes.

You don't choose to try and save everyone because you think one day it will cause world peace, you try to save everyone because that's the happiest possible ending to a situation and it should be something worth striving for.

Ummm...Wasn't he always like that...Besides a hero needs a villian.
And errr...all I remember about kotomine prior to Day 9/10 was that he was known to be in the previous grail war and healed Shirou a few times...Kirei's majour Characterization was when he went alongside Shirou to save Illya and got caught by Shadow leading to the final Fight if i'm not mistaken...

You're blatantly mistaken. Most of Kotomine's characterization in HF comes from discussions with Shirou and interludes that happen well before or during those couple days.
>>
>>101233262
Do you somehow think that Kotomine's characterization only applies after it has been explained to the audience?

In any case, Kotomine likes normal Shirou because he's a broken human being that can only attain happiness through others, just like himself.

>>101233513
You're an idiot. The whole point of UBW was so that Shirou would learn about the flaws in his ideals, so that he WOULDN'T end up like Archer, you stupid motherfucker.
>>
>>101233220
By, once again, not abandoning his ideals. I explained earlier that HF puts him in a situation where he has to betray his ideals. This time he can't save everyone by only having those two choices. Of course, it'd be great if he could find a third choice, but he is unable to at the time.

He has to betray them, but as I said here:
>>101231911

He shouldn't give up on his ideals just because he wasn't strong enough to find that third choice that time. Rather, he should be even more motivated to never get cornered like that again. He should in this route, more than any of the others, work the hardest towards becoming the superhero he dreams about being.

I seriously don't know what the fuck you're talking about. That picture is about Archer, as in the timeline where Ilya apparently dies and Shirou sacrifices himself, which is not derived from UBW because UBW Shirou learns from his future self.

UBW Shirou and Archer are the most alike. Or, I should say they are the most alike when Archer stops being a jackass and applies himself.

At the end of UBW, both are referring to the other as "myself" despite still hating each others guts.

It's cute how tsundere they can be.
>>
>>101233802
And some of them are about Kotomine too. They are where the bulk of his characterization in the entire VN comes from, along with those talks with Shirou. The only meaningful scenes that happen post-day 10 are the one with his waifu and the very last confrontation with Shirou in the cave. Fuck off and actually read the route before trying to discuss it like you have any idea what you're talking about.

Kotomine mentions himself that they were the same, they're two people who once tried to have it both ways even if it was impossible. Two broken people who believed themselves to be sinners and did everything in their power to try freeing themselves from that chain, even if they both knew it was impossible from the start.

No other Shirou tried to have it both ways like that, and Kotomine did do much the same until his wife killed herself and he silently broke away from god after realizing even that couldn't effect him in the way he wished.

That's something he felt in every route; his method of salvation was always something that bound him to the voices of those killed in the fire as they judged him at all moments denying him happiness and telling him "You don't deserve to live" unless he worked his hardest to make that life into something.

Really this isn't hard to get, there's an entire scene in UBW about how he can't have fun because he has no right to do such a thing. This is just a chain to him at times, but it's one he accepts for atonement.
>>
>>101235355

>>

>but that shouldn't stop him from doing his very best and at least get as close as he can

That is EXACTLY what he does in HF. Holy shit. What in the bloody hell is it with people managing to miss this? What is so goddamn hard to understand? He doesn't sit down and let the city be overrun, he still goes out to fight whatever causing it while ALSO trying to save Sakura.

That's the whole damn problem: he knows it's not possible. The mere act of picking any of the possible choices is an admission that he simply can't succeed at all of them, and he has to accept that. That is the only possible conclusion for him: he's going to fail. Just like Archer, he's going to be stuck in lose-lose situations and fail to achieve a perfect result and hate himself for it. The only doubt ever was to WHAT DEGREE he'd fail. Having to make a choice was an admission that his ideal was impossible, even if he still tried to protect everyone at once, because he knew he wouldn't make it.

That's the only possible conclusion to pursuing an impossible goal: failure, and how he deals with the fallout. Kiritsugu wrapped his ideal into a mess of pragmatism that rendered the whole thing self-defeating, Archer sold his soul for a miracle, and Shirou kept pushing by deciding what he was going to prioritize and cracking away at the edges from having to deal with the failure.

The ideal is pretty, but at lot of this whining in so many of these threads sounds to me like people didn't get that from the very beginning the end was never going to be pretty. Shirou flat out states in UBW that he knows where this is going: the skewered corpse in the hill of swords. UBW's own incantation states it clearly: it's not gonna work. That's the point of HF: something like this is inevitably going to happen sooner or later and Shirou will have to deal with it.

>>
>>101235618
Both ideas are present; Archer's reason is valid, but we do literally see him haunted by the ghosts of the past at times asking "Are you going to betray?". The truth is he just wanted to seek happiness like he saw on Kiritsugu that day, but we have scenes proving he's still binding himself with the past in ways that are self-harming.

There's a scene in HF where he's being told by the ghosts to kill his girlfriend in his sleep as he silently mutters to himself while crying because he doesn't want to do it.

It isn't about Shirou being chained down, it's about him remembering what he can. He's forgotten most of them already, he's always been moving forward.

Being a superhero was what he needed to accept that, throwing it aside breaks his character and completely wipes away the Shirou I found to be the best character in the whole story.
>>
>>101235769
You can either let him die for her sins and let him atone, or he'll die and be born anew due to the sacrifice of another one wanted him to live here. He may still have to atone each day for what he has done, but he stated clearly "It' not about whether I can't forgive myself, rather I already can't forgive me for letting someone so close suffer for so long". He knows he can't be forgiven for what he has done, but this is still his path. Also for anyone who's read Ruroni Kenshin you should know by now that death is not atonement, but living and working for something better can be. Death is just a quick way out for those who can't even face their sins.

The end is surprisingly fine given the circumstances.

>>
>>101236190
Denying yourself any happiness in life because you don't deserve such a thing in the first place isn't remembering what he can, nor is it just his way of moving forward. His ideals in truth aren't as beautiful as you choose to see them at times. He seeks something grand in life and will aim towards it with everything he has, but before any revelations or meaning he has made it into a chain for himself that will deny any sense of self he has and tells him that fun isn't something he deserves.

Twist it around a bit, the reason he feels guilty might be a bit different here.

He was the only one in his family who saw it in time, he just chose to run as soon as he saw that thing, he left them behind, and as a result look what happened to them and everyone else. Probably not his fault, but it's a reasonable thing to blame oneself for in a way.

>but before any revelations or meaning he has made it into a chain for himself

Just... reread the fucking route.

It's not a chain, it's his whole self. He states it very, VERY clearly. He's not denying himself stuff, his mind flat out doesn't work like a normal person's. Whoever he was before the fire isn't wracked with guilt, whoever is was is DEAD. Not there anymore. His mind fizzled out and left a blank behind. That's not a sane human being anymore.

Emiya Shirou was born in the fire, which as fucking unsubtle as you can get considering his inner world is a goddamn forge. His personality is based first and foremost on the ideal he got from Kiritsugu. It's not a thing he has on top of his personality, his personality is built on top of THAT. This is why he can endure ridiculous shit without flinching, the chunks of a human mind that would normally scream at him to let go just don't work the same anymore. They make the point of showing you that Shirou doesn't swallow his fear to jump out in others' help, his self preservation instinct flat-out shuts off in those situations. His mind as a whole doesn't work like everyone else's.
>>
>>101236909
But all that matters is saving lives, right? You could probably still sacrifice a lot of what you've got without killing yourself and save at least a few much less fortunate people in the process.

He hasn't denied his self and the reason he's not having "fun" is because he's applying himself his every free moment.

Even if he lives out his whole life as he has, he won't regret it nor will he accept anyone telling otherwise.

Aha, so can you please explain the whole mind-wrecking mess DAYS LATER when he finds out she's the Shadow and has the choice to kill her in her room?

Having screenshots means nothing if you miss what's in them. If you think Shirou's sense of responsibility is normal or a fair standard of judgment, you're fucking insane, or so dumb that you got through an entire route explaining how his rational thought is ridiculous and that he blames himself for shit no sane human being would blame him for.

>>101236542
Your own words contain the fact that the blame he assigns himself is ridiculous. Why in the fucking hell would you complain or say he needs to pay for it?

I get his other self is dead, even if he still has those memories he has become a new person entirely. It was stated enough times that even if his body was saved his soul or mind had died in that fire, and he was reborn by being saved at the last possible second. However you can't deny that it literally says the way of life was a self imposed chain and that he denies himself happiness in the game itself.

And he did all he could with what he knew. What the shit are you saying? Killing Sakura when he finds out she's the Shadow is the wrong choice: he dies and presumably the world follows once Sakura loses her mind completely and nothing is there to stop Angra Manyu from being born.

There's the factor that I don't even know if any money I spend those third world countries will even help anyone. From the reliability of whatever "service" I choose for this, to whether or not the people actually need more money or whether they just need to do something about it.

I've given money to disaster reliefs, because those make sense. Giving money to poor third world countries, where none of the money will even go to the people in need or will be spent in the continuation of another foolish strife isn't going to help.

You're an idiot. Yes, they're out of context. That's a screencap from Fate. In case you somehow managed to miss the tiny little fact: he doesn't really understand himself in Fate.

In UBW, there is a line stating in absolutely clear words that guilt had nothing to do with it.

>However you can't deny that it literally says the way of life was a self imposed chain

Yes I can. Because not only does nothing ever say that, the route wholly dedicated to psychoanalyzing him says the exact fucking opposite: there's nothing self-imposed about it, that IS him. There is no Shirou beyond that.

You keep talking about him losing stuff in the fire yet you somehow completely manage to understand what any of that meant. There wasn't any person left to impose anything on himself, his whole self sprung from his admiration when he saw Kiritsugu. That's what his entire self is built around. His mind isn't shackled by this, it is built OF it. Without the ideal, there is no Shirou.

That's the entire goddamn point you're missing. There's nothing aside from that. It's not a facet of his personality, it is the building block on which everything else is built. There's just nobody there without it.
>>
>>101237388
It wouldn't be that difficult to research charities and other aid organizations to determine whether they'll use any money you give them in a meaningful way. If you really wanted to, if you cared that much about helping as many people as possible no matter the cost, then you'd have done it. But again, you haven't. You've accepted that it's entirely possible that a death might happen tomorrow that you could have prevented. You don't know it for sure, true, but you've accepted it nonetheless. How exactly are you any less culpable than Shirou, from your point of view?
>>
You can't judge all the routes on a linear standard, like you go from Fate to UBW to HF.

They're all different people due to the circumstances. Fate Shirou is an Idealist, UBW Shirou is a Realist, HF Shirou is a "hope for the best, prepare for the worst" cynic.

No.

HF is a one of a kind situation with all the circumstances stacked against Shirou with none of the other routes factors being there to reinforce him.

The 5th war is the tempering of the blade that is Emiya Shirou. Too low a heat and he's only half-done, too high and he cracks.

You're an illiterate dumbass. All of them are "Hope for the best, prepare for the worst". Even in Fate he has the monologue about the bank robbers and how he'd like to save the robber as well but knows it's not likely. The only difference is the degree to which they're forced to face the truth, and the responses are all consistent.

Are you fucking retarded? His wish is to save everyone in any conflict he runs into. Are you seriously fucking stupid or naive enough to think that situations where there's no perfect solution are RARE? Were you homeschooled or something?

There is no conceivable way he's going to go through life trying to get a perfect result and never fail. Archer spent a lifetime going through that.

Ahaha, wow and yes I have read that post anon it had nothing to do with anything that pic was trying to show. Those red lines show what HF-fags do with the rest of the entire VN, you by yourself are reworking yourself to think HF and a few tidbits from each route make an entire story, but in reality the entirety of all 3 routes make and says a complete story anon, Fate is the answer Saber was seeking and gave Shirou a question fot his Ideals, UBW is the answer Shirou was seeking for his ideals and where it would lead him, HF however puts Shirou's ideals to the test where he has to discard his ideals for one girl or keep his ideals and become Kerry ver.2, and may I add that HF,Fate and UBW are only 3 of the millions of possibilities there is and those 3 alone tell most of the story leaving a few out of place elements. Heck whenever Nasu decides to finally write up that Illya Route we may be able to see a complete story.

She went back to the mansion to try to kill Zouken or at least die trying as it would solve their problems either way, but then didn't expect to run into Shinji for some reason and he wound up dead.

Stop reading anything more complex than a Goosebumps book, you're not smart enough to figure out even simple characterization.

A situation where he can't save everyone involved and has to pick is enough. If you don't understand that, you don't understand the character at all, so it's pointless to listen to you.

>>101238644
Your sentences are so damn run-on it's hard to tell if you even have any point. Regardless, it's obvious you have no idea what you're discussing.

>keep his ideals and become Kerry ver.2

Case in point. If you think becoming Kiritsugu means fulfilling his ideal, you missed the point so badly that there's no hope for you. The exact opposite choice is the one that's more in line with his actual desire, which is to save everyone, except he knows before picking it that he'll fail.

We're talking about certainty here. If that guy doesn't trust charities to use his money correctly, then I don't see why he should expect Shirou to trust fucking Zouken, of all people.

Shirou was never naive. In every route he is aware of the impossibility of his ideal.

>Did it go over your head that Angra Manyu DIDN'T try to be born into the world as an enormous bat like demon in any of the other routes? EVERYTHING that could go wrong, went wrong in HF.

Who cares? None of that is relevant to this. All it takes is for Shirou to run into a situation where "save everyone" isn't feasible. You seriously think he's never going to come across that? Ever? Seriously? So you think all the repeated points at which the impossibility of his ideal is mentioned even in UBW was everyone being a bummer for no reason?

That's some serious stupid.

Who said HF Shirou gave up? Gave up what? He still tried to hunt down the Shadow. He failed. Just like Archer. Archer knows he failed.
>>
>>101239310
He states it himself if you pick the right option; there's nothing to say she actually will hurt anyone and they're being too hasty. Which is why he took to watching out for her in order to make sure no one got hurt. All she has to do is intend to fight in the war seriously in order to deny the worm, but it turns out the real thing that was keeping her sick all that time was the fact that she was a grail and humans typically aren't compatible with Heroic Spirit souls that are worth hundreds of thousands of normal souls.

Until she kills someone she can't be condemned there, even if Shirou realizes that no one being hurt is a dream among dreams in a way.

It strikes me just now that the lot of you seem to be operating under the moronic assumption that Shirou never does anything again after HF. Based on, apparently, nothing at all. And contradicting the mentions in the ending about how he's still working on his stuff and will recover his abilities with time. Or that Archer is totally fine with his inability to save everyone and that it never bothered him at all. You somehow assume HF is the end of him? If that's what this is all based on, then I've wasted a lot of time arguing with idiots.

Yup.

Nah, all you gotta do is supply the thing with the original game disk, and it'll install it for you. That's how it works for most patches anyways.

>>101241042
All you gotta do is download the game, and them run the patch. Then do the things it tells you to do while it's running the patch.

Thanks anons. Downloading now.

Also download demon tools, mount the game disc when it tells you to, and then mount the second game disc when it asks you to while running the patch. That's really as extensive as it gets.

Anyone shell out for the games? It's satisfying to take them out and admire sometimes. Also have Mahoyo which is an especially nice set.

I wish. I have both the collector's editions of Fate/ulimited codes and Fate/Extra though. I'm hoping to get the 10th anniversary edition of F/HA but we'll see.

Already got daemon tools, fuwanovel's folder either didn't have a disk, or I missed it somehow.

Just click the fate application icon (SD Saber). It should bring up the game. Then says yes to all of MM's requests.

Fuwanovel is a pre-installed game, which is a problem because 99% of the time pre-installed games fuck up. Find an .iso torrent, and just delete your fuwanovel folders.
>>
>>101242240
if you downloaded that fuwanovel version you're fine, just run the Fate.exe executable

Don't know what it is about the F/UC case cover, but I love it.

She can't swim. A lifetime of being able to run on water means you don't need to swim.
