I'd imagine its because ubw is the second arc and he doesn't want to commit to a vn.

Yeah.

And I plan to watch Kara no Kyoukai + other Nasuverse stuff don't worry.

So, theoretically, if I watch the 2006 anime, UBW, and the future Heaven's Feel movies, I won't be missing anything from the Fate/Stay Night game, right?

The stay night adaptation isn't the best, but I don't think there's too much lost in terms of critical plot beats. Problem with watching zero first is that you already know most of the big reveals

I'm new to the Fate series. I finished Fate/Zero recently and am about halfway through Fate/Stay Night 2006 (Yeah I know, wrong order. Blame my friend.)

No spoilery details, can someone give me a yes/no answer on whether Saber/Artoria remembers the events from Fate/Zero? It seems like she doesn't.

She remembers.

It's kinda like asking if obi wan remembers the clone wars when you watch A New Hope; the specifics were made up after the fact.

No, you would actually be missing a lot because there are concepts and story structure that transfer from route to route and don't work for a loving TV Show, but if you'r seriously gonna try to game a VN like that it's probably your best bet. Outside of actually reading the drat thing, of course.

It would kinda work as a long series that looped back on itself ala the VN but that's not the way they chose to adapt it and it does suffer for it, I think.

For instance, F/Z is pretty self contained, but UBW def is constrained by lacking the context of Fate and not really being a straight sequel to F/Z.

Am I missing plot points or a stylistic choice? There's an important difference here, at least for me.

More like more in depth character motivation for Shiro and Rin and watching them develop over the course of the three stories. The animes don't convey that to the level the VN does, UBW does the best job at it with the last episode, but it still drops a few beats and the 2006 anime literally tries to absorb the other two routes into itself and makes a loving mess of it all. This is also not to mention every route ups the ante from the last and the way the story of the VN is structured it plays on your expectations of the previous routes to subvert expectations of characters and how events could turn out.

If you're gonna watch them, go for it, but you're not getting the experience everyone who read the VN got.

To the man who loves art for its own sake, it is frequently in its least important and lowliest manifestations that the keenest pleasure is to be derived.

It's worth noting that back when the VN thread existed and wasn't being skeevy as hell, it was basically the MLA and F/SN react thread. The VN tends to be worth your time.

you read the f/sn vn so that you can read the hollow ataraxia vn so that you can watch carnival phantasm

f/sn is on the lp archive anyway

I'll read ataraxia since there's no anime of it. (Yes, behold my revolting anime morality).

KnK I'll be watching at the same place I watch F/SN 2006. If Crunchyroll doesn't have something I have no choice but to use

Somehow the 20 atk extra on the ce resulted in 10k more damage on kinoki NP from 200%. Boost

Other events were work and with the exception of Dantes I could grit my teeth and finish them but this event seems like bs. I managed to finally survive 15 turns against her with a little luck and a lot of careful choices that paid off and managed to make back the damage I had previously wasted but still; it seems unfair when it comes to quest rewards.

This event was annoying before they reduced they made every stage last 24 hours instead of 48. Now it becomes pretty hard to complete all the missions if you also want to sleep regularly.

They keep increasing the amount of daily rewards you can get, but it's completely infeasible if you're only doing 2BP like I am so gently caress that.

I just go for the Summon Ticket because I am dumb and still believe I can actually get something I want from the gacha.

Another attempt, failed with 4 turns remaining; because Waver and Mashu died too soon. I have to make zero mistakes.

You always have the choice to be a dutch/german/french speaking person, which would make it much cheaper

Seriously, Aniplex or whoever takes care of that stuff across the pond has some serious pricing issues
