You really think someone would do that? Just go on the internet and be a llama?





if you just want to know enough to watch one specific anime or series or w/e fate is super simple


if you want to understand how all of the plots connect together you're hosed because despite theoretically existing in shared universe nasu refuses to let something simple like continuity or universal rules stop him from writing what he wants to write.


the actual serious answer is that coming from a visual novel with 3 distinct routes that go in very different directions makes a unified universe or singular sequel really hard, so the creator just sorta ignores all that poo poo and writes what he wants to write, as the fans try desperately to make everything fit together

Melty Blood is Tsukihime, which is connected to Fate by whatever they decide connects it. Basically, Arcueid is featured as a Servant in Fate/Extra, and when she loses, she tears a whole in space-time and just leaves the universe. There may or may not be an explanation involving the Moon Cell as to why she's there or if that's even the same Arcueid. Despite her role in Extra, she is probably the only canon Servant not featured in Fate Grand/Order, which makes her inclusion as part of the recent Fate anniversary all the more baffling.

There is also Kara no Kyoukai, which has been represented in both by way of Ryougi Shiki being in both Melty and FGO.

On a related note, Under Night In-Birth features a Tsukihime character, Sion, under the name Eltnum.

That's a weird crossover lol

The Fate series is only enjoyable by those with absolutely terminal anime poisoning. It is a garbage series and I am absolutely willing to die on this hill.

You should all be watching JoJo instead, hth.

i dont really know whats up with this modern trend of like, googling the wiki and going down every page trying to understand something instead of just, watching it if it interests you and not caring about it if it doesnt.

Spatula City posted:

there's a difference between "has lots of extraneous lore" and "very complex, interwoven plot" but it's not a distinction nerds seem to comprehend.

Western nerd culture has always had this undercurrent of obsession with a narrowly defined form of curative activity, in which the internal details and consistency of a fictional setting are more important than whatever the actual work is trying to do, or what effect it has on them as an audience, or interesting technique, or literally anything else.

It's the spiritual descendant of all those Medieval theologians writing books about how many angels can stand on the head of a pin.

Similarly you get 10,000 word articles explaining the structure and interconnectedness of a show that makes it sound super complicated, sprinkled with a whole bunch of backpedaling "but you can watch it in any order, I swear!" instead of just saying "it's basically an anthology series."

He streamed the whole game, but I watched his subnautica streams and I guess chat was pestering him to play the entire franchise and drakengard games to get the ~TRUE EXPERIENCE~ and he said he'd just not do the video period if he had to play the entire franchise first, so...

this is a good metaphor because if you actually just sat down and watched the namek arc itd be the most straightforward thing in the world. krillin and gohan want the dragon balls, vegeta wants the dragon balls, freiza and his goons want the dragon balls, everyone wants to fight each other over it. like there's a 100000 word article on the namekians on the dbz wiki but all you need to understand to follow the namek arc of dbz is that they're good aliens who are being murdered by evil aliens so the big evil alien can summon a genie.
The real big brain play is to watch the original Dragonball from the start so the end of Namek hits that much harder.

Fate is good

I spent a few years away from the franchise and the amount of weird and bad in it ratcheted up drastically, and it seems to be half because of that magical girl show and half because of Fate/apocrypha, so maybe avoid those

But the "main" line of the franchise (VN/VN-adapted content and Zero) is some good poo poo, and the only yikes material in it is ultimately handled really well

Incidentally, on topic, does anyone listen to any YouTube to help them sleep? For the past year or so I've been playing Allison's Charmed Reviews, gently chuckling my way to sleep to it. I think I've just listened to it so many times over the years it's become essentially comforting and funny white noise.

There are actually multiple YouTube channels whose only content is analyzing JoJo and its symbolism and speculation on the storylines for hours and hours and pretty much only JoJo, maybe a mha video every half year. Don't know if other anime or manga has as much. I'll list out some of them later when I'm on desktop.
