Does Nasuverse canon have an explanation for why witches all have misshapen ears? Is it that the character designer just had a thing for elves? It's brought up in story, so it's not even a weird design choice. I don't get it.

Elves do exist in the Nasuverse along with other mythical creatures like Dragons. Sadly the whole setting is this weird Low-Urban fantasy mismash so we don't ever seem to see much of it.

Like apparently the moon is a huge deal, Gil is apparently so powerful the world has him sleep on the dark side of it where all the demons live.

Again, crossposting form the UBW thread:

Myriad Truths posted:

Also Caster can do all sorts of weird things, with her being a fake Master and whatever. I think Caster just has a special affinity with cheating. There's all sorts of things she can do against the logic of the War that sound absurd because she's such a good cheater.

If you think about it, all the breaches in rules Caster makes make sense. The Holy Grail War, with all of its regulations is, after all, nothing more than an immensely elaborate ritual prepared by a group of magi. Caster, being from the Age of Gods and all, is most likely significantly stronger than any of the magi directly involved in its establishment (welll, not Zelreth, oviously, but from what I remember he mostly just watched.) so it makes sense that she can bend the way it works a little.

That was always my thought as well, the Grail was formed no earlier than a few hundred years in the past right for their to be four Holy Grail War's at the correct 60 year intervals? That's 250 years with the 5th. So circa 1750 though I vaguely recall it being 1550, doesn't matter. I expect a Mage from the Age of Myth/Gods to be powerful enough to glance at the grail and make it do the dance.

That's even if Medea/Caster even *is* something resembling a Mage, from what I recall of her myth she's no Raistlin*. So a proper Mage from that time could do whatever hacks he or she wants.

*Assuming the origin of the Nasuverse being an RPG system derived from D&D is correct then Medea is probably more of a Bard, but you're still a spellcaster so it counts.

the history of all dead generations,

Speaking of not good Type Moon works, this has come out recently:

Lord El-Melloi II posted:

Lord El-Melloi II Case Files

"In a way, you could say that the modern magus is in the business of gathering angels."

The detached castle Adra. [India? Syria? Ethiopia? Spain? none of the above?]
Like a lone living being, it is a demon castle created by magi who were fascinated with angels.

The ruler (Lord) of modern thaumaturgy at the Clock Tower, El-Melloi II, gets caught up in a battle for succession over the detached castle. The interior of the castle is adorned with many angels.
Only those who have unraveled the mysteries of the Angel Names granted them are invited to inherit the detached castle.

However, it was no simple solution to a riddle. To the high-ranking magi of the Clock Tower, it was the beginning of an excessively fantastic tragedy--.

Now, the curtain rises on the "Lord El-Melloi II Case Files", which blends riddles and illusions, thaumaturgy and mysteries. [shinpi!]

Sanda Makoto (Red Dragon, Rental Magica)

Sakamoto Mineji (The Arms Dealer in a Dress and the Country of War Flowers, Lord of Knights)

Lord El-Melloi II Case Files 1: case. Detached Castle Adra

It's notable for featuring possibly the most wank of all Saiba-clones yet and this.

As for a Tsukihime anime, I'm sure we'll get one a couple of years after the remake. So 2025 or thereabouts.

I finished reading the Fate route now, interesting bit of irony and foreshadowing at the end there when Shirou goes after Kotomine while Saber fights Gilgamesh, Gil says it would've been better if Saber went after Kotomine while Shirou stayed to face him.
