Technically Mash is purple-haired herself, being based on a concept and design scrapped from the VN and considered for inclusion in the deen anime.

Mordred is short tempered and impulsive, but arguably smarter than all the other (featured, on-camera) KOTR, excluding Agravain .

This is less to their credit and more an insanely damning statement about Lance, Bedi, Tristain, and Gawain (Gareth is also around but I don't think she's ever actually said anything).

Well Lancelot can't be chosen because he hosed off after the whole poo poo involving Guinevere and Gareth isn't available because it is very difficult to do anything after having your unarmored skull smashed by Lancelot.

When Mordred was chosen to be in charge of Camelot, we know that:
- Artoria left to search for Lancelot.
- Lancelot was on the run.
- Tristan had abandoned Camelot way before this mess (and I think he was already dead by then).
- Agravain was killed by Lancelot.
- Gaheris was killed by Lancelot.
- Gareth was killed by Lancelot.
- Gawain was just a little pissed that Lancelot killed all his siblings, so he probably went with Artoria to find him.

my posts are as bad the Current Releases review of Gone Girl



the most canonical depiction of the arthurian cycle in Fate is John Boorman's 1981 epic Excalibur, starring Nigel Terry as the only at-the-time socially acceptable actor capable of depicting an Arthur sufficiently moe as to replicate the real deal

Honestly while saying Nasu has definitely read OAFK or anything like that (although maybe he has who knows), he does echo White a fair amount on his analysis of themes and the knights themselves.


The biggest two things you don't get in Fate Arthurian Legend are rival kings who aren't Vortigern (and the Vortigern is weird) and no Morgawse so Morgan is just weirdly mom of half the round table.

And look where it brought us. I imagine Mordred will raise troops against us when King Arthur returns from Rome. I’ve had enough of this foolish infighting. I’ll think of some reason to excuse myself from it all. Perhaps join up with that other fellow womanizer, Lancelot — I, no. That is the one thing I will never do. It’s fine, I’ll set off sail for some other land and spend my days there. With all that fortune I’ve amassed, I have no need to fight anymore. And you, you will be fleeing to Avalon are you not? Best to end this idle talk lest you have your head chopped off for being an opportunist.

Give us Percival dammit. All we know so far is that he was a better cook than Gawain, and that's not hard!

He shows up very briefly at the end of Arthur's side story in Proto Fragments Drama CD 4.

quote:

Percival: “Welcome back, Arthur! Red Dragon! Wow you look like poo poo…...what the hell is with all that blood on ya!?”

Saber: “I’m hurt too, y’know.”

Percival: “Aren’t ya just a little bit hurt? Guess it can’t be helped. I’ll give you an ointment, here.”

Saber: “Thanks.”

Percival: “But, well, you surprised me this time. It was originally supposed to be an unbeatable creature. After all, it was a…. Well, never mind, not like I know. Even Palamedes would have a hassle hunting that beast down.”

Saber: “We couldn’t leave it alone. It hurt innocent civilians.”

Percival: “That might be true, but…….”

Saber: “Nothing more, nothing less.”

Percival: “I see. ―――So, how’s things going between you and Morgan lately? Have you seen her recently?”

Saber: “……Why are you talking about my older sister?”

Percival: “Ahahahaha.”

Saber: “?”

Percival: “Wait, you’re seriously asking me that?”

(context: Arthur has just returned from killing the Questing Beast, which is a beast born from a princess who was incestuously in love with her older brother. Her brother naturally rejected her and in revenge, the princess slept with a demon who promised to kill her brother for her. The princess lied and said her brother raped her, so their father sentenced the brother to be executed by being ripped apart by a pack of hunting dogs. Before his death, the brother cursed her to give birth to a monster that howls like a pack of hunting dogs. Given that, Percy joking about Morgan here is a little...uhhh...)

One thing I've noticed that's kinda an interesting coincidence is that in the Hades game, the Furies have a pose when they attack that's kinda similar to Medusa's stance where she bends down/goes on all fours?

I recently read through Tsukihime and since I already know about the VNs and games that follow or spring from it, I was wondering about what manga people would recommend, for any reason. Not looking for anything specific beyond sketching in or playing around with the characters in ways that people find particularly interesting or fun.

Let's be honest, Arthurian Legend + Anime was always gonna lead to a sis-con Arthur jokes, or a bro-con yandere Morgan.

They wouldnt be able to resist it, mostly because Morgan in actual legends alternate between trying to kill her brother, or seemingly regreting killing her brother in some interpretations. And let's not forget acutally loving her brother on his wedding night. Shr was already a yandere.

The joke was always gonna be made. Mostly because it wasn't a joke in the end.

We should be more worried if Morgan becomes summonable in FGO. Once that happens the doujins shall turn the joke into a reality.


And thus the Saberface hell shall gain a new circle of horror.
