So can we talk about why TsunMage is best Fate?
EXTRA Rin is best Rin.
Rin is good and all, but I'm partial to another TsunMage.
Jesus christ just how long her left thigh is?
Shes second to Illya, but that's still pretty good.
Rin is for tender loving, Ilya is for taking to the park and general imouto goodness
Most unnteresting heroine ever.
She is only good in the story for info dumping.
Rin love you long time
I want to protect that pillow.
It's amazing how one girl can be so adorable at one point and sexy the next.
>that huge foot
That's her tail you fucking fool.
>that fat tail
>Arm length gloves and stockings only
Tsunmage is good but pic related is best waifu.
She would be mediocre, but dat ZR man. I'm a huge sucker for thigh-highs and feet. If only more women wore these.
Bringing up Soujuurou in these contexts is a bit unfair, though.
He's too pure and perfect.
I don't know who he is, but I like his smile, so I'm going to find out.
He's Mahoyo's heroine.
Also the moe and fanservice character.
Always make sure your Rin is properly packaged.
Mahoyo you say? I shall find that soon then, or at least add it to my backlog.
It's not done with translation yet. But they're close, so it should be done shortly after a Lancer wins the grail.
>after a Lancer wins the grail
Aoko is the MC, Alice is the friend/rival.
It makes perfect sense.
Is it just me or does that plant look like Kiritsugu's head
I dont think I'll ever unsee that now.
Rin is a nice classic tsun whilst (Mahoyo) Aoko is all that is wrong in a modern Tsundere.
I dont like how they ruined her from how she is in Melty Blood.
Long arm gloves and S-graze ZR is a match made in heaven.
I would knock up Rin and Luviagelita
Rin certainly. Luvia does absolutely nothing for me though. The drills and the overly conservative way of dressing dont attract me at all.
>drills [...] don't attract me at all
They just look like shitty fat dredlocks on her. All of my nope.
Trust me, I would.
Yes, Rin is best heroine in FSN and one of the best TM girls period.
Not to mention she has the coolest Servant. In FSN. Not getting Zero into this.
Screw it, I'm image dumping my RinxArcher related stuff.
Rin is the most lovely thing to ever exist.
Rin has been in my God Tier of TM girls for years now.
She is up there with Sion, Saber, Kohaku, Ryougi and Touko for me, anyways.
Don't you sometimes just want to squeeze her in a big hug?
What is it about Rin that makes her so good? She's easily my favourite TM and I honestly don't know why.
Have some genderbent Daddy Tohsaka- it's basically an older Rin anyway.
And damn if it isn't hot.
Well, she has a hell of a lot of character development, she's your bro in every route even if she isn't your love interest, unlike Saber she's not a bitch and she's not damaged goods like Sakura.
And she punched the shit out of Caster.
Here's some Luvia, just for fun.
Anyone have the gif of Shirou telling Lancer in UBW Route to "step off, Tohsaka's my woman"?
This. She's a strong capable woman, but also has a very cute side. But seriously. She fucking knows Kung Fu.
>And she punched the shit out of Caster.
Can we all Agree that Nero is best Saber?
Like, have you ever read any of the side material about the Tohsaka king fu?
What it does is it makes the person explode from the inside out.
So, Tohsaka Rin knows the shit that Kenshiro does.
(Most of my Rin pictures include Archer. I adore them both. Sorry.)
Omae wa mou shindeiru!
Nah, Zero Saber is best Saber, with Nero right after her. Fate Saber shit.
Holy fuck. What year is it again? We're still talking about Rin?
New UFOtable anime coming out fall of this year.
Rin will become the new hotness again.
I love Rin but Saber is not a bitch, anon. At least try to keep it civil.
It's her anus.
Lots of people have been reading Fate/Stay Night recently since the announcement of the Ufotable remake.
So cute and badass and dat ZR! fucking perfect.
Also, she can kill servants, suck on that Shiki!
Of course not. Original is best.
And nothing good came from F/E with the possible exception of Tamamo.
Great things will always be discussed. Great people even more so.
Mahoyo translation when? ;_;
God, Prisma Ilya makes me rage so much; not even Luvia being in it helps.
There's no Archer, no Lancer, no Kotomine. Just loli bullshit fanservice.
Also, FSN would have been more interesting
if Rin was the protagonist and not Shirou.
>Original is best.
Tamamo spreads love and wonder wherever she goes, so her presence makes Extra worthwhile.
>Also, FSN would have been more interesting
if Rin was the protagonist and not Shirou.
The complete snoozefest that was the prologue to the game completely disagrees with you.
Rin is far more suited to being an observed character rather than the audience insert character.
The bits of Archer backstory were kind of neat, but there should have been more.
That's wrong though.
>I'll never be that pillow
Feel free to get off your bandwagon whenever you want to, anon.
It has nothing to do with Rin being the narrator, it just lacks action.
>no drowning in ideals
It has everything to do with her being the narrator. She is much better as the bro tier support character/heroine she is intended to be.
For me FS/N would always be
Saber - The Comrade
Rin - The Heroine
Sakura - The Tragic Female
I loved the prologue - it was my favorite part of the game.
Not to mention the banter between Rin and Archer was sort of fun. None of the other Master and Servant parings had that sort of banter between them. Saber was always reserved, Rider was getting raped by Shinji, Lancer was getting cock blocked by Kotomine, Berserker was being daddy surrogate for Ilya, and Caster was being wifeu to Kuzuki.
Jokes on you, a Lancer was the last person to die in the 2nd Grail War.
You NEVER stop talking about Rin.
original is best
is the same character
is the same character
was interesting but ultimately has shit development compared to original
nigga you gay
>Rin - The Heroine and Main Love Interest
Agreed. The best banter between any master and servant is still Lancer and Rin though.
>It has nothing to do with Rin being the narrator
It kind of does. She's already far too informed and far too confident in what she needs to do that there's nothing for the reader to do but follow after her and try to keep up.
Shirou is new to everything about the Grail War so he's more willing to ask questions and think over his decisions. It's a more reflective, uncertain narrator that more closely mirrors the reader's experience. Rin's a strong character, but she's closed off because of it. Shirou hesitates, and in those hesitations we feel closer to him.
It would turn into an otome game with Archer, Kotomine, Shirou, and Lancer routes.
I want it.
Shirou would have still been in it.
The "Drowning in ideals" could have been in the Shirou route. There would need to be an Archer route, a Shirou Route, an Ayako route, and maybe a Lancer route.
>Rin - The Heroine and Main Love Interest
>there's nothing for the reader to do but follow after her and try to keep up.
That's the point of the prologue. The story doesn't start until day 1. Narrator Rin's job is just to explain what the Holy Grail War is and how it works, and you can't do that if the narrator doesn't know either.
Lancer was hitting on Rin so hard and she was so into it. But then again, Celtic Bro is Celtic Bro.
She wasnt in to it at all. She didnt really know what to think or how to deal with it.
(So in essence, self insertion)
It would have been harder to implement, unless you switch to his first person perspective for shirou, as so much of it is mental. It would have been interesting though.
Not that guy, but embarrassed and confused Rin is best Rin.
God, the Kotomine route would be really odd though.
However, I would love to see an otome FSN version with Archer, Lancer, Kotomine and maybe an Ayako route, because Ayako needs more love.
Could you imagine the Kotomine sex scene though?
Also, there needs to be a Bad End with Rin being Archer's hostage when he rapes her in the chair. (What, I was super pissed off when we did not get bondage Rin in chair CG.)
Well yes, it is self insertion but the game makes it abundantly clear that you are simply along for the ride inside Shiroe's head. You are at no point supposed to feel like you can relate to him
He PROBABLY wouldn't rape her. Maybe sit off to the side and stare longingly.
It's pretty hard to relate to a sword.
Best Saber is clearly Gawain
>Could you imagine the Kotomine sex scene though?
No but I've got a feeling that it would be glorious.
Go to bed, Gawain.
>dat Archer ass
Well, that sort of happened in UBW though when she fell asleep in the grave yard and when he said good bye to her in HF.
That was something else about Extra; actually asking Archer how he feels about Rin.
Kotomine route would be weird as fuck. I'd love it, and more Lancer would be great too.
>Rin being Archer's hostage when he rapes her in the chair.
>bondage Rin in chair CG.
Stop it anon I don't need diamonds right now.
That cover is so beautiful.
Everything related to UBW is beautiful.
>Can you keep up?
>not feeling any joy, just desperately trying to find a way to feel pleasure and love
it would be suffering
Well, that sort of happened in UBW though when she fell asleep in the grave yard and when he said good bye to her in HF.
That was something else about Extra; actually asking Archer how he feels about Rin.
And he fell out of his chair, or almost did.
I won't tell anyone anon.
Part of the Kotomine route would have to have him trolling her about producing a heir and that it is God's Will to procreate. Then he comes inside of her to troll her and she freaks the hell out.
>Stop it anon I don't need diamonds right now.
Come on, you know it would be a gloriously hot Bad End. Plus, you know Archer's so frustrated he's just going to jackhammer her.
Someone sounds fickle.
Sex scenes seen from rin's POV would be awesome
He did fall out of his chair, and totally denies that he did.
Then he proceeds to give the most tsundere ever answer that Rin is exactly his type.
How do you know? (seriously, I went through the entirety of the FSN VN, and I didn't get much info on the early wars).
>Come on, you know it would be a gloriously hot Bad End. Plus, you know Archer's so frustrated he's just going to jackhammer her.
I'm 2 clicks away from sadpanda, don't make me do something I'll regret anons
Rape bad ends are the best bad and ends and best h-scenes
Yeah I just couldn't remember if it was the other scene where he catches himself before falling out of his chair.
It would have turned into him brutalizing the girl until she died, and then he'd probably come all over the place and then brood because he felt so good about killing her.
That...seems pretty likely actually.
Oh god, this doujin was hilarious.
I mean, I would have liked it more if it wasn't futa, because the idea of a virgin Rin trying to rape Archer would be hilarious.
"Rin, you're not wet, this isn't going to . . ."
Heh, thats the Shirou in him comming through. Rin was always the girl he fantasised about.
The sky looks better in Deen's version
I'd pay good money for that mug.
I paid £2
Well yeah. Because she's best girl.
However, if the player is retarded and chooses Rani over Rin, his prebattle talk to himself is sort of really sad. He's basically reminding himself that this Rin isn't his Rin and he has to do this.
I had always been suspicious about his wife lacking an eye
Custom from the internet
My lewdness is a great nightmare.
My anus is defenseless.
It contracts every time he moves, like a second reproductive opening
The dirtiest part of me is right in front of him.
The sky in DEENs version is also wrong as Shirou's UBW has a clear sky which is supposed to be pretty symbolic.
For some reason, I imagined Magus Killer playing in the background
Or he has a freak out doing it, traces sword, and accidentally stabs her.
Then he kills himself as she's dying.
Link? I want a custom mug.
>your new duty as a guardian is to soothe the raging meat sack attached to rin's body
Occasional reminder that Gawain could've stopped the battle of Camlann by not making Lancelot mad.
lol'd at this.
For some reason, I can't help put ship Deermud with everyone
But he jobs more than his aunt and cousin
Unlimited Anus Works
He beat the King of Jobbers.
Truly the best.
it's that love spot.
Goddamn love spot
They truly are love personified.
Further proof that Deermud with anyone is an OTP
Man, sex scenes in Rin's POV would be hot and awesome at the same time.
I can see it now.
The Lancer sex scene would be alternately hot and funny.
The Archer one would be actually sort of sweet until he unleashes THE JACKHAMMER.
The Kotomine one would be disturbing in a "Oh god, why is my dick hard/why am I so wet?!" sort of way.
Not to mention some way for Rin to hear her hymen tearing or something like that.
Tohsaka, why are you getting soap all over the bathroom!?
>Also, FSN would have been more interesting
>if Rin was the protagonist and not Shirou.
Only people that have no idea what they're talking about tend to say this.
Prism Ilya isn't just loli service either if you plan on holding out on that one, the plot starts getting heavy in the second course and even more so in the third. There is Kotomine, there is Archer, who needs Lancer, but still it's all there.
Rin doesn't have the right quality to be MC there, the contest is the opposite of what it appears at first and it's incredibly heretic in nature once you see the underside a bit more. She adapts faster than some mages who are all about rules, but she's still very "That's not possible" in regards to what can and can't happen when every rule is meant to be broken.
>some way for Rin to hear her hymen tearing or something like that.
unngh this artist is the best
>inturpreting battlefield respect as love
Are you seriously this shallow?
That's how hard it is
Jap bathrooms are generally big wet rooms. Getting soap and water everywhere is the entire point of them.
>you will never get soap and water all over a bathroom with Tohsaka
Well, it's pretty.
Also, if there was a Rin otome, this would be the harem end.
(God, why hasn't someone done a doujin Rin otome game? I would think it would sell. I mean, there's doujin games that have Rin raped by dogs with magic jism.)
Life is fucking bitter
>You will never get soap and water all over Tohsaka
Hey hymens come in different thicknesses.
Maybe Rin has an extraordinarily thick one. Which is why there was blood almost to her knee in her H-scene.
Let us have our fun Anon
You will never get all over Tohsaka
Her virginity can't be taken by any cock below rank A. While she has it, all her tsuntsun stats are increased by one rank.
What about Shirou?
Or supersecret Shirou-Archer 3some.
The only way I can justify any sound of that is that she couldn't hold a fart from sudden pain
Oh there is an easier explanation, magic.
Lost to Mordred's entire army, lost to Lancelot after a battle that took all day, lost to MC after his sun juice was cut off at the source and he lost his cool, lost to the origin of gods, maybe Galahad as well
A lot of his losses seem deserved enough
I AM THE BONE OF MY SWORD
Man, I do hope with the new FSN anime coming out that there's a bunch of new doujinshis that don't have Rin getting fucked by nameless fat man.
Fucking hate nameless fat man.
Much rather see her get fucked by a canon character. Come on, Kotomine NTR could be awesome. So could Archer NTR. (There was one doujin that had horrible art, but the story idea was freaking awesome. It was UBW and Caster orders Archer to fuck Rin while Shirou is forced to watch.)
Who is this artist?
So fucking high teir.
>Archer and Shirou DP Rin
>Archer says - "Can you keep up?" mockingly towards Shirou
>Shirou enters JACKHAMMER mode in response
>Archer responds in turn
Only when she isn't wearing that turtleneck.
Fuck rin, fuck arcueid, fuck steve.
I'd love to see Shirou fuck her for the purpose of impregnation.
I'd be fine with a Shirou-Rin-Archer threesome too.
Damn it, I just want some good Rin porn that doesn't involved faceless fatman.
Her scene in F/HA is pretty much this.
It was awesome. Happy, romantic sex for the purpose of procreation
Forgot BB beating him with the Holy Grail
Sabers best girl, rin comes close in third
She's not third, she's second. Saber is still 1st.
I would if I could ;_;
She's the origin of gods ever since cannibalizing the source of divine spirits, Potnia Theorem and all that. At least she has the acting power and authority of the Earth Mother. Despite not using that power to beat him, and instead just using Holy Grail.
Rin and Saber are joint best girls in my book.
Only correct answer
Rin the 2nd best girl, Kotomine has the 1st place and Saber is in the shit tier.
Maybe the new anime will be a Rin route where the romance won't get pushed to the side in favor of Shirou's and Archer's lust for each other!
Love has bloomed in the battlefield.
Besides, Nasu and Urobuchi ships them so why not?
I just wish we have a sequel to FSN where it's Rin's and Shirou's kid story. And depending on what name you choose, you can either end up with Shirou's (and Kiritsugu) ideal and power, or Rin's sarcasm and devastating Tousaka's lineage
I kinda getting bored with prequels
If we're talking romantic partners for Shirou only, it's Rin followed closely by Saber for me.
If we're talking all girls, Rin and Taiga are tied for best, followed by Ilya and then Saber just behind her. Saber is great, she just tends to fall slightly short of best girl status for me.
Best Tsunmage and best Fate is here.
>Sequel to UBW, shirou is eventually forced to make a pact with the world to save thousands of people
>game then begins to play F:SN through archer POV
I was very disappointed they didn't have any "Seibah starts going to school" antics in any of the routes, or in any of the spinoffs.
I'm the other way around for romance. Saber followed closely by Rin.
Seibah is best girl to me though
She technically goes to Rin's school in the fat man doujins
UBW Shirou is not the same as UBW Archer. Also Rin is now there for him. But yeah, wish we had UBW's archer story
Yeah, Seibah is great. There's just so many great girls to choose from, she gets outclassed in my eyes.
I want a god damn Taiga-Sensei route though. It would be easy, Taiga stumbles into the mage world on accident, suddenly Shirou has to protect her, he gets mixed up in the yakuza, it'd be fantastic. I want it more than even the an Ilya or Issei route.
>fat man doujins
It's such good art wasted on NTR.
>Stumbles into the mage world
What if it was the other way around? Shirou, rather than being dragged into magical war, ends up in a battle between rival yakuza clans and has to protect Taiga with his unique magecraft?
How old is Taiga anyway?
>Shirou, rather than being dragged into magical war, ends up in a battle between rival yakuza clans and has to protect Taiga with his unique magecraft?
Anon, you're a genius, and I love you. That is probably the best thing ever, and now I want a Taiga route even more.
Someday, Type-Moon is going to announce a rerelease of Fate/Stay Night, with the undeveloped Taiga and Ilya routes.
Like 24. Saber's actually mentally older than her, being around 25. (15 years sword + 10 golden years).
Better version; Holy Grail war starts, taiga gets dragged into magic, Shirou and the Yazuka have to eliminate all magic types using Kiritsugu's old anti-mage stuff after magic is discovered to the world and a death order is given to his town
Christmas Cake I'd think. Ten years ago during the 4th holy Grail War she was a high school student of indeterminate age, but I think it was 16.
I understand man. I like Saber but that doesn't mean everyone shares my feelings.
And I wish there was more supplementary/non-canon TM material. Just little silly things or side stories like F/HA.
NTR is awful.
To each their own, anon.
Nah, they're done with the main F/SN work after they did RN, and Nasu is pretty much done with the franchise in general now (besides helping out with the new anime).
But think of all the money they could print if they rereleased F/SN now that the franchise is so huge, especially if they added content and brought up resolutions to modern screen sizes.
This thread made me realize that Rin deserves her own harem.
Heaven's Feel was the Ilya route though. Sakura was just a cocksleeve.
Ilya was the real heroine of that route.
Type Moon is not all about monies
You mean Brotomine.
But Ilya's route was Mind of Steel in the third draft, after Fate/Prototype and "Shirou's Seven girl harem" versions.
In my eyes, Sakura made a good villain in HF. When her hair went white and she went all batshit crazy, I enjoyed her character significantly more than her just saying "S-senpai!" over and over again.
Let's just say it was a dual-route. Sakura's too plain to be the true heroine.
I think you got the wrong mage there
>Mind of Steel
>Being an Pro-Ilya moment
>After she spends ten minutes before that just talking to you about "I'll love you either way, but don't become our father here and ruin everything"
>You've turned into merciless murderer, onii-chan, but I'll gobble on your dick anyway
No, they changed it in the final. But in the second draft, Mind of Steel would've been the name of the Ilya route, and they just kept the name for the bad end.
She's clearly a yandere.
Pretty good series
You mean a loving and devoted wife.
You mean crazy bitch
But can it protect you?
I can't help but fap to these
I feel guilty every time though
Oh god. Oh god, my sides.
Carnival Phantasm season 4 when? They can do so much now with the F/Z characters...
Well thanks, guess that's it for me then!
Oh dear. You sound like you need a taste transplant.
need more of their pairing
They could do far more with Extra/CCC characters
Just take a look at this guy who is Kotomine + Dio
Shirou's legs looks goofy as hell there, but it was one that I didn't have, so thank you.
So the white hair is a side effect or what exactly?
But I would love stuff like this.
I'll have a 4Koma of Kiritsugu's banter with Tousaka anyday
well the gramophone and crystal telewriter had style, but lacked practicality
Anyone have that comic of Shirou introducing Seiba to Kerry?
As much as I'd love it in english, I can get the jist of it from the facial expressions only. Those last two panels are gold.
I do know it's in English somewhere...
someone wanna TL this real quick?
It's already been typeset, along with the one after this where Kiritsugu tries to talk Shirou out of dating a heroic spirit and Archer ends up listening in.
Waver NTRs Shirou after UBW, how does this make you feel?
danbooru has translations, as usual
Rin is just motivated Shirou to be more like Archer. Regular Shirou can never win.
>Able to NTR anyone
Rider must've rubbed off on him.
>He doesn't know about old Waver
He's very popular and strict in the school, it's said that he's raised so many top class magus that if he was to call in a few favors he could move up in his position easily, but he doesn't want to do this. He's currently rather irratable since he's stuck unable to move up the ladder anymore in his job since the higher ups dislike him, so he works off stress playing video games.
Aw man, but the other one is only partially translated
>there are people in /a/ (if you can call them that) that prefer Rin over Ilya
how do you people sleep at night
Shirou: Dad. Do you have a minute?
Kiritsugu: What's with the formality, Shirou?
Shirou: No, uh, it's not really a big deal, well maybe it is, but... uh... there's, uh, someone I'd like you to meet...
Kiritsugu: I see, guess you're about that age now, Shirou.
Shirou: Wha-- why are you saying it like that?
Kiritsugu: It's fine, bring her over.
Shirou: I'm bringing her tomorrow, so make sure you're here!
Shirou: This is, er, the girl I was talking about introducing you to yesterday.
Saber: Pleased to meet you. I'm Sa... be...
Doesn't he belong tot he El-Melloi heiress, who's like ten years his junior?
>Shirou will join Waver in playing games
>Waver bumps shirou up in the Mage School
Why are they so cute together?
I love Tohsaka, but getting NTRd by Shirou doesn't feel that bad.
Yep he is her bitch
I don't know how good this is, I saved it a while ago
Rin won't die when giving birth to my many children. Hell, she won't die period before her first gestational period is up.
"H-hi Illya, you're my favorite, I've always wanted to meet you, and I love you."
"Sorry Anon, I'm a bit sad. I've only got about 6 months to live, you see I'm a..."
"Ah, yeah. That sucks. Hey is that Rin over there? I'm gonna go talk to her for awhile. Chin up though, Illya. You keep that chin up."
>Another Ilya copy
I finally got around to watching Carnival Phantasm. This is fucking amazing.
I'm in tears.
>Caster is defeated
>Gilgamesh is defeated
>Archer is defeated
>Lancer is dead
Fucking every time. Every moment of CP is golden.
She's more like a Kayneth copy.
That's what I'm doing right now, though I'm skipping the Tsukihime stuff since I haven't read that yet.
Aoko's cool in general, but Aokofags are starting to be as annoying as Anniefags ..
Heres the other one
The end of that race made me fall off my chair.
Why is Saber so shocked? She knew Shirou was Kerrytugu's kid, when she went to meet him she should have known who to expect. Actually forget that, Kerry had been dead for five fucking years before Saber and Shirou even met. How the fuck is Shirou gonna introduce Saber to a dead person? This comic doesn't make any fucking sense at all.
don't think too much about it. it's a what-if with a punchline
That final episode was absolutely perfect.
>What do you want to wish for?
>We want our money back
I've rewatched the episodes so many times and it still entertains me.
That episode is great, the one in your pic.
I just want her to have an actual VN route, and not be stuck in a linear story.
It isn't a comic taken from the Fate time-line, it's a comic from a time-line where Kiritsugu survived to raise Shirou, and servants don't just fade into the ether as Shirou met her as a normal girl and they started dating.
It gave me smug Archer and for that I can never possibly express my gratitude.
What is this sorcery? Like fucking VHS recorders?
That voice she had was adorable.
Everything about this show. Why is it so good?
yes, and like vhs recorders they're obsolete technology
Go be old somewhere else, Tokiomi.
>Implying he would even know that.
Saber's voice is just too good
>Even having a TV
So, posting Servant idea. The concept is that since the mask of Zero has been worn by multiple people (Lelouch, C.C., Suzaku, maybe more if Suzaku passed the mantle down) the Grail can summon any who wore the mask. This would be if C.C. was summoned. Any flaws in the design?
True Name: Zero (C.C.)
Master: Emiya Kiritsugu
Alignment: True Neutral
Endurance: E (EX)
Noble Phantasm: A++
Magical Anomaly (A) : Signifies one’s existence as a Magical Anomaly. Completely immune to any form of presence detection, including detection via Bounded Fields. Also immune to any form of Mental Interference, such as suggestion or memory manipulation. Replaces the Assassin class skill of Presence Concealment.
Due to Assassin’s curse. She has become something outside the laws of the world, and become another existence entirely. Most Thaumaturgy has inherently no effect on her, and she does not emit any form of magical presence. However, offensive Thaumaturgy can still harm her.
Immortality (A) : Cannot be killed by conventional means. Wounds will heal almost instantaneously, though the more fatal the wound the longer the recovery time. Amplifies one’s Endurance to unquantifiable levels.
Granted from Assassin’s curse. In life, she had been shot fatally a number of times, been crushed by water pressure, burned at the stake, subjected to the guillotine, placed in an iron maiden, and stabbed by spears, all of which she recovered from.
Charisma (C) : The natural talent to command an army. Granted from the Mask of Zero.
I'l post the Noble Phantasms in a separate post, since there is not enough space.
No, it's completely different. Think of VHS recorders as being like people handwriting words to take notes. Blu-ray recorders are like getting a full transcript of a person's lecture or speech, and then photocopying (not Xeroxing you fags) it.
Code of Immortality, Curse of the Immortal Witch (Barrier, A): A curse that allows Assassin to grant others with the Power of the King, otherwise known as Geass. Geass will manifest differently for each individual, and is based off of their personality and inner desires. Assassin can detect the location of those she has contracted, no matter the distance. Also grants the abilities Immortality and Magical Anomaly.
Forced upon her by a nun who had given her the power of Geass. Besides that, the origins of the Code are unknown.
Mask of Zero, the Man of Miracles (Barrier, C): Grants the owner with C rank charisma, or boosts the owner’s own charisma by two ranks.
In life, Zero became a symbol of hope for the anti-Britannian rebellion. It was said that even the mask of Zero could give others the strength to fight, and any who served under him would find themselves with under the belief that victory was guaranteed.
Her body is too sexy is the translation done?
Extra Rin knows some strange sorcery with this odd device called a "Combuter"
>all that is wrong in a modern Tsundere.
Don't you mean her right thigh?
If Rin became a Servant her thigh-highs would be one of her Noble Phantasms.
I like dark hair better but blonde Rin was a nice change of pace. She looked cute.
Can ZR kill Servants?
Badon has a few decent ones.
If Mahoyo part 3 is gonna have multiple endings with "Aoko Good" among them I might just take back every bad thing I've ever said about Nasu.
Never gonna happen though.
I learned about this only two days ago. If only I could describe my initial reaction...
So looking forward to it.
The lewdness plus Rin's cuteness will cause them to have heart attacks.
>but blonde Rin was a nice change of pace.
People like this exist. They have yet to be hunted down and raped to death.
She's a desert punk assassin in her day to day, her physical parameters and sex appeal are higher than normal Rin, but she seems to be a slightly worse magus despite still being one of the best in the game she's presented in. Of course this last bit is just based on how the bottom tips of her hair are turning white like Emiya, as she's used to using magecraft beyond her limits too often.
Some people say she's far more arrogant than normal Rin, but I don't know if I'm seeing it.
If servants can die from heart attacks.
24-26. There is a lot we don't know about the great striped beast.
I said dark hair is better. I'm just saying blonde looks good too.
S class noble phantasm. The sheer perfection of her ZR's proportions melts your face if you make visual contact. Beings with unusually powerful mystic eyes like rider only suffer from a violent succession of orgasms that leave mind and body exhausted and in ecstasy.
Extra Rin also had bigger breasts, which makes her lower quality than normal Rin.
I'm stupid lucky. I, on a complete whim, decided to read F/SN a bit ago, and about a week after I finished UBW, the anime got announced. So I've just been binging everything Fate related (Finished F/SN, watched Kaleid and CP, currently watching Zero) and I'm super hyped for everything coming out this year.
Jesus, I hadn't seen a Fate thread on /a/ for ages, and the moment I start to read it there's several a day. I'm the luckiest fucker alive.
Sakura killed Shinji in HF, right? Which day?
Anyone have the original without-the-glasses version?
Sometimes I wonder why Takeuchi assigned himself to be the artist.
can it be dodged with enough luck
Near the end, day ten or eleven probably
Get on Fate/Extra while you wait for the new anime series. You won't regret it.
I'd honestly still love Rin regardless, but her hair color and style are as synonymous with her character as her zr. Just can't stand to see them changed.
Thanks. I don't remember shit.
Her Zettai isn't so absolute, it's not even striped socks or striped underwear, and EX is probably what you mean rather than S.
Black stocking zettai can also be powerful, but it needs something to really push it forward that isn't present here.
That's more in the middle than the end.
Higher luck increases the odds of getting a flash of "something dangerous" which makes instant kills even more likely.
Her yellow and red actually looks very good together as seen here>>102230538
Plus This is really Rin's niece, as the game takes place in 2030.
Closer to the end then, it's right before shit goes to shit at the 75% mark
I'll look into it after I'm done watching F/Z and reading that Fate/Kaleid manga thing I found recently.
Extra is more like an actual video game rpg, isn't it? Could be interesting.
The battle system is love it or hate it, there is grinding, it's kind of like Persona, but the characters are solid.
That's one way to describe it
There's not much actual "gameplay", if you can even call it that. Treat it like a VN.
Kotomine is best girl.
Everyone knows this
Same thing happened to me pretty much. I started F/SN a long time back, but dropped it because Fate was boring me. picked it back up when the anime got announced and loved the shit out of it. Just started reading the final volume of Fate/Zero, then I'm going to watch all the anime adaptations (Kaleid, F/SN, F/Z) and probably play the games sometime
Just make sure you choose the right partner when starting, that really makes or breaks the experience for you.
Archer twice, for me.
It's a VN with a mini game that requires grinding
I can dig it, it's been too long since I've played a nice, grindy rpg. Is it for pc or psp or something else?
She needs mana badly.
>The battle system is love it or hate it
Is there anyone on this planet that loves the Fate Extra battle system
I hope you're good at scissors paper rock.
Either, it's for PSP but emulation does exist.
DO NOT WATCH THE F/SN ANIME!
I like it, but I play grinding games pretty often to be honest.
Really need to finish my third play through already.
WTF Type Moon
Black ZR is the only true ZR.
Also, ZR + twintails + tsundere = class S ZR.
It's fine as an adaption.
Does she lust for Waver's D?
>Is it for pc or psp or something else?
PSP or PSP emulator on PC.
While it's certainly based on it, all the health bars, mana systems and abilities make it far more complicated than that.
I love to curse every time I think about it. Played through the first time about 3 months ago, and really want to go back and play Archers route to get more of his back story. Thinking about going through all those levels again is more than I can bear, though.
I have a psp emulator downloaded for something else, so I can just use that if I need to.
As long as it isn't translated in that order, and instead uses the correct rock-paper-scissors, then I'll live with. I'll just pretend it's Kaiji.
I'm already on episode 4. I'm just curious and it's not like my time is so important I can't watch it. I need something to watch while I finish reading Fate/Zero anyway.
It is pretty shitty so far though.
I like the boss fights, where you get to freely burn through your mp.
Tokomi was unfaithful to Aoi apparently.
Also Archer is best servant in Extra. However, be prepared to be knocking on the 4th wall a lot with him.
Of course it's shitty; it's a pretty bad adaption that gets the story and characters wrong while trying to combine routes.
She's Rin's niece, so Tokiomi banged a girl before Aoi who gave birth to Extra Rin.
Why is Extra Archer so great?
Yeah, I didn't watch the anime but I did hear about Shirou's character in it, so I was expecting him to be a lot worse when I started the VN.
It ended up that I liked Shirou pretty much the whole way through. And the only time he was really sexist was the thing about the archer captain running into a molester.
You mean give birth to Rin's sister that gave birth to Rin Extra?
Can I just take Extra as non canon? All of these shit is making my head spin
At least he got better, kind of.
Everything is canon, except for CP I suppose.
He ain't got no time for love when there's ass to kick.
It's kind of like how Sakura without all the drama suddenly becomes a very nice character in Ataraxia. Archer without Shirou around suddenly shows a bit of his fun side even if he is still the same guy and acts like an older sister according to MC.
just consider it an alternate time-line like it happens to be and call it a day.
Extra IMO is a clusterfuck quick money making scheme without much merit
If it was some quick cash-off then I doubt Nasu would have rewrote the entire thing and delayed the release the first time around because he just wasn't happy enough with the first draft, be there from the start writing CCC from the ground up, and consider CCC the proud end to the franchise in his name as the True Ending is his final farewell. The guy put a lot of love into this series, to the point that almost anyone can see it looking at his notes in the data book.
Because we get to see Archer where he's not going insane with the pressure of killing his past self. So you get this snarky, teasing, but not overly so companion. And he's not full of self-loathing like FSN Archer is. Oh, and he's the most tsundere character in Type-Moon. And in Extra you can finally have him bang Rin.
Dear god, after you have him bang Rin though expect him to go super dere dere on you.
CCC was delayed twice that is how much dedicated Nasu was for writing his final Fate.
I assume Shirou continued to cook for those ~11 years in between F/SN and becoming a Servant. I bet a meal made by Archer would be really fuckin' tasty.
According to Nasu the world of Extra happened because the ritual summoning of the Dark Six failed and mana disappeared from the world from what the Extra material says.
He rewrote the entire thing in the final two months to fit Gilgamesh into the game. That is Kohaku's route in Tsukihime levels of dedication. Since Kohaku's route wasn't originally going to be in the game, and after someone said "We should do this" they ended up writing it in like a week (or so the story goes) before it had to ship out.
I really would have preferred a threesome. Just imagine the delicious Rani-femc-Archer oreo cookie.
>He rewrote the entire thing in the final two months
>ended up writing it in like a week
I'd say that Vidya has never been a medium that does a good job at presenting a story. But I can believe this. Extra was pretty mediocre compared to the source material.
He goes out of his way to pilfer food and criticize how poorly made it is in FHA.
Anon just starting F/E from the other day. I'm day 6 of the first week and these are my stats so far, are they okay? I've put the vast majority of my skill points into magic as that is what I was told to do, I've only learned one spell so far though.
Do I need to grind more before fighting Shinji tomorrow?
Yeah, although he doesn't specify the ritual so much, rather he alludes to it by calling it "Overcount 1999" and says that the ritual takes place in a very certain London town which is obvious for anyone who knows shit about Notes.
>But I can believe this. Extra was pretty mediocre compared to the source material.
Your logic is a bit odd since we're talking about CCC there which isn't translated, not Extra.
Also we're talking about Tsukihime which is the source material, and no one sees much flaw with for the most part.
At master level 8-10 you should be fine with the Caster IIRC.
At the end of the day, I assume you saw that screen that pops up and shows your progress. At the top of that it'll say "Target Level XX." That's the level you're supposed to be at when you go into the Elimination Battle, so as long as you're at or above that, you should be okay. I haven't played Caster yet, but I was at 08 when I fought Rider with Saber and Archer.
Put some into defense, I'd probably say be around Lv12 at most and just target the bulls in the second arena as they give the most Exp (I think it was the bulls).
Magic pays off later on, but you might have a hard time here taking any attack since Mana will dry up pretty fast at this point.
Oh, well this is an interesting glitch. Or at least I think it's a glitch?
Nice to see the typesetting a bit more on par this character.
pass the sauce for a pauper
>Leaves Illya's shirt on.
Stay pleb, Shirou.
For me it's Saber>Sakura>rin>anyone>rider
There's nothing appealing to me about rider
Story is picking up in quality, we're getting a bit of characterization, I could really see myself reading this.
Ilya > Sakura > Rin > Saber
Can't say I was really playing for the girls though, and I doubt a lot of the people here were either considering the lore itself, servants, Emiya, and the shared universe tend to be something of a higher note.
Play Tsukihime if you want a game about girls, and play FSN if you want a game about well thought out male characters.
Not even her voice?
Rider gets more characterization in Ataraxia, however she did have some time to develop in HF as well for those that picked her options at any choice there near the end.
I have a theory. What if Extra takes place in an alternate universe where Kerry made a wish?
Extra takes place in a world-line where a failed ritual in 1970 caused a polar shift as the Earth was super fucked for awhile and 2/3rds of humans died off. As of 2000 things have stabilized quite a bit, but stagnation and the onset of a foregone conclusion of death still looms over humanity.
Maybe the Grail War still took place, but it's a question.
Oh. Never mind then. It would've been cool if I was right though.
It's an interesting reference in itself when you branch out in the shared universe, since the failed ritual in question was the one to summon the Dark Six in Tsukihime 2. The failure of the ritual will invariably lead to the time of Notes, when Gaia called all his other Aristotle buddies to come kill off humanity when she dies off.
>Play Tsukihime if you want a game about girls, and play FSN if you want a game about well thought out male characters.
Fucking this. Arceuid, Akiha are better than any female character in Fate. And Kotomine, Gilgamesh and Archer are well the better male characters.
So, any announcements about the new FSN anime?
All we know is that it's coming in the fall season of this year.
Man, how many costumes is she being whored into
How about we ask Okita Sōji here
The funny thing is (from what I've seen) the majority of the Japanese fandom roundly ignores the "true" ending of CCC in favor of the Servant endings.
Can't really blame them since picking the true ending means sacrificing your Servant (unless you're on Gil's route) in favor of goddamn Sakura. It's especially a dick move if you have Tamamo as your Servant. I really don't get why Nasu keeps trying to shove Sakura down people's throats, considering her relative unpopularity. Her being unpopular is well-known enough that they keep making jokes about it in official materials, but Nasu just keeps pushing her.
The other funny thing is how CCC is really heavy on the pandering otaku fanservice, and yet the female version of the MC is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay more popular in the fandom than the male MC.
Is he dead?
Blossom is different from Sakura even if people find that statement laughable if they're ready to dislike her, and True Ending is more than just "sacrifice your servant" for Sakura. True route has a lot more shit go on, true villain revealed, things go to shit, and maybe some of your friends actually survive this time around. However Nasu calls the farewell to the servant moment in particular to be the pinnacle of the franchise is a bigger point here however. It's the climax for him, it's symbolic of his goodbye to the franchise as the viewer gets to literally say "Goodbye" to FSN and servants, and he just felt it was the strongest moment.
>There are two types of routes in CCC.
>If you’ve seen the Sakura-centric events, you will enter the True route,
>whereas if you pay no mind to Sakura and see all the Servant events, you will enter the Servant routes.
>The chapter title for Chapter 7 differs between the two, so it becomes immediately apparent which route you’ve entered.
>…...However, it’s still possible to see the Servant endings after you’ve entered the True route.
>In the True route, there is a final branching point where you can choose which ending to see.
>Also, the reason the True route is called the "True" route is not just because it’s the route where the truth behind the story is revealed, but also because “bidding farewell to your Servant” is the pinnacle of the Fate franchise, and the rightful conclusion.
>…...Well, even so, the scenario writer’s personal favorite ending is Gilgamesh’s! (TL note: Nasu is referring to himself in third person)
Nasu loves True Ending partially BECAUSE of the goodbye to servants moment, but his favorite ending is still Gil's.
Just watched episode 7 of CP.
Caster is officially the cutest.
Living the dream
THAT IS NOT THE IMAGE I WANTED TO POST
he holds a special place in my heart
the boss fights were what made the game for me
the grindy bits weren't that fun but the boss fights were great
well that and having a kind of romantic relationship with archer
But it sure fits the post.
>The other funny thing is how CCC is really heavy on the pandering otaku fanservice, and yet the female version of the MC is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay more popular in the fandom than the male MC.
Fan artists prefer moe, there's really not too much else to this.
he's the sexiest
and also we finally get to see him in alternate outfits
>starting with Kyastah
she's kind of NG+ material but you should be fine
Shinji is easy shit
After you beat Shinji here you'll start to understand the truth about this contest.
if you had selected a male master, would the dialogue remain mostly unchanged?
Question, Google is giving me mixed results so I might as well ask you guys, is F/E CCC english translated yet or are the torrents i'm seeing all fake
Oddly enough the petition is almost there
Only Extra is in english. I think CCC has a petition going, but otherwise there's no plans.
Must've been an awkward sort of confrontation when Hakuno has Berserker for most of the war, and then right before he battles Rin he suddenly shows up with King Goldy.
The anime better give Cu a bigger role.
I wouldn't mind Lancer dying as long as he gets all those great UBW scene.
Related, but besides Fate stuff, what else in the Nasuverse is worth checking out?
Tsukihime, generally whatever else you can find
Read Tsukihime, read or watch KnK. Everything else is mostly related to either those two or Fate.
Alright, I'll check out Tsukihime and KnK.
And just one more thing: Is Angel Notes worth reading? All I know is that it's pretty much the first thing Nasu wrote and it kinda establishes some stuff he uses later in his other works.
Can't sate, I haven't read it. I'm still working through the Nasuverse myself. Tsukihime is pretty central though, get yourself through that when you can.
Yeah, I know. I just have some other stuff planned ahead of me, and I'm gonna be rereading Steins;Gate when that comes out at the end of March.
Tsukihime doesn't take anywhere near as long as FSN does. What else of Fate have you gone through already?
I admit, I'm not even done with F/SN yet, though I'm working on it. I should finish UBW tomorrow, and finish HF by the end of February. After that comes Fate/Zero, then I'll probably do the KnK movies since that seems easy to go through. That'll get me a good way through March, so I don't think I'll start another VN by then.
Tsukihime can be done in a day or two really; it's kind of far shorter than Fate if I recall.
At an average casual pace you can say a route will be done in two days there, and five routes total.
Ah thanks then. I'll see how much time I have though, college keeps me busy...
Man, don't you know you shouldn't be in FSN threads until you've finished it? Oh well. After you finish both FSN and Tsukihime, watch Carnival Phantasm. You've also got Fate Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya to watch and Fate Extra to play. Following Tsukihime, play Melty Blood and read Kagetsu Tohya. From there, you've really only got minor things like Fate/Apocrypha and waiting for Fate/Hollow Ataraxia and Mahoyo translations.
That archer & Rin segment was fabulous
How does it feel to be garbage everytime you do it?
That scene is so great.
This is what Rinfags really believe.
I want to make Tohsaka orgasm from her anus.
