are the kara no kyoukai movies licensed? can't see them on bakabt

also are they licensed by a reasonable company, or is it like fate/zero?

Amazon has them for a reasonable price in the UK. I've had them on pre-order for a while and they were finally released and dispatched yesterday.

Just asking for clarification: When Shirou and Kiritsugu have their little chat on the veranda about being heroes, Kiritsugu just fuckin' dies right there, right? That's what it sounded like from the visual novel, but no animated form has ever really made that clear.

ACTUALLY IT IS VERY GOOD THAT THE SHOW IS BAD AND ANYONE WHO DOESN'T REALIZE WHY THAT'S GOOD IS AN IDIOT. JUST ENJOY THE BAD SHOW INSTEAD OF THINKING.

I don't' know that it was literally right there, but for all intents and purposes.

I just got to that flashback in Fate, and yeah he literally dies at the moment. Shirou has a line about how he just left him like that overnight because it looked like he was "sleeping".

Yeah he pretty much dies in his sleep, though when exactly it happened no one will know

I remember Saber getting turned into a damsel in distress and Caster acting rapey towards her as being basically the dumbest thing in the entire VN, H-scenes included. Let's hope this at least tries to handle it better. :smith:

Ok, how many Saber clones are there in Nasu-verse by now? Five? And thats not even counting alternate versions of Saber like Dark Saber or Saber Lily.

This is getting pretty ridiculous.

Joan of Arc is Ruler if we're going by Fate/Apocrypha, the other girl in the trailer is Shielder and according to the TM wiki, Red Saber from Fate/Extra might be in the game.

Extra Saber and Mordred. That's it.

Jeanne doesn't look much like Saber. They're both blonde and in armor but they look pretty different outside of that.

Lt. Lizard
Apr 28, 2013


To me, Jeanne looks like Saber with a braided ponytail and a slightly different armour. And from that trailer, Shielder looks like Saber with white (pink?) hair and a different outfit. They both share the same overall design as Saber, just with some minor bits changed/added. I guess they are not literally identical to Saber like Nero and Mordred so you could call them Arturias sisters instead of Arutrias clones if you felt charitable, but eh.... :shrug:

Endorph

Shielder and Saber look pretty much nothing alike beyond being drawn by the same dude. Like, I mean, they're girls in anime with different hair/outfits/eyes. That's like 90% of the defining features right there.

Never quacked for this



They're no more similar than any other two blonde characters drawn by the same artist.

Takeuchi's sameface goes beyond Saber, anyways.

(And this is why anime draws characters with wildly improbable hairstyles and colors)

Lt. Lizard

Uh, I was using exactly those pictures to check if Jeannes and Sabers appearance is really that close, in case my memory was failing me and they look really drat similar to me.

Heck, wasn't that even a minor plot point in Fate/Zero?

Compendium

M-E-J-E-D


Eh, there's enough differences in terms of armor and hair length where it's not that hard to tell them apart.

And yeah, it was a minor plot point since Zero Caster thought Saber was Jeanne and thought she was just denying it. But you know, he was a crazy motherfucker of course he'd mistake Takeuchi's samefaces. :derp:

I think the joke is that 90% of FSN readers would've made that guess at some point. I certainly did.

Incidentally I also guessed Archer was Jesus at some point, which made his monologues about hurting himself while projecting and saving people really funny

Jeanne definitely counts as a clone, but she's still distinguishable from Arturia if you're not a crazy person like Gilles.

Shielder doesn't look much like Arturia to me, though; she looks like an older and more clothed version of Jack.

Shielder was an older character design that they were going to use in the original VN, but she was one of many corners cut out of the final product.

As I thought we did get the church fight, or least part of it anyway.

Now the UBW thread has to wait four months to find out who archer is.

and yes. I hope they do change the wedding dress part, or least make it some one more saner than 'Caster went costume rapey'

The 2nd cour preview showed Saber in what appeared to be the wedding dress, so that's still there.

The real reason is that Shirou cannot believe anyone could be attracted to thrash like him that should have died that day in the fire, because he has massive issues.

The joke reason is that he's dumb.

The real reason this thread can not have joke posts is that the Fate fanbase is full of people who take every opportunity they can to :spergin: out, often ending up as complete non-sequiturs that just make everyone involved feel awkward.

The joke reason is that it's dumb.
