• Excalibur had a sheath that protected King Arthur from harm in some way in legend, but until Nasu I don’t believe a connection was ever drawn between the sheath and the land of Avalon, nor did the sheath prevent aging.


I'm not sure if it has basis in another source, but in Marion Zimmer Bradley's Mists of Avalon the sheath is enchanted with old magic from Avalon and is given to him by his half sister Morgaine who is a priestess from there.

Why can't Saber go incorporeal in UBW, can she normally? Did I miss something about that? I totally don't remember from /zero, and don't care about spoilers if it is one.

So uh, what did Rider ride? I was semi-confused earlier before they had said who was who because I thought she seemed like a Caster, until well...Caster showed up.

Maybe I will have to read the stupid VN one of these days after all. :sigh:

Naw, I know this is the general type-moon and spoiler thread and I know who she is from somewhere or another, but forgot all about the Medusa's head >>Pegasus thing. That is a pretty big stretch but whatever, we already got Arturia so anything goes really.

Spoilers aren't a thing that bothers me, so after watching Zero and Carnival Phantasia everything else I know has been from reading things in this forum or just googling poo poo. Up until recently actually going thru or even reading the let's play of the VN itself hasn't had much interest.

this show sucks, i liked fate/zero better bad, or let's all post spoilers bad?

or maybe even both?

Both! It's very exciting.


If by exciting you mean having your eyes glaze over and brain go numb.

e: I think i'm going to just stop following it same as I do for almost every super-popular show/movie on this entire set of forums. :sigh:

Did the grail ever work as advertised at any point?

a kitten
Aug 5, 2006



I thought it was pretty decent.

I'm not sure if i'll ever bother to re-watch it at any point, but i definitely had a decent enough time with it. Fwiw i'm only familiar with the nasuverse from Zero, Carnival Phantasm, Garden of Sinners and general animenerd cultural osmosis.

I did just start reading (playing?) the FSN visual novel due mainly to becoming more interested in the setting and storylines because of the UBW anime.

I'm really, really curious what you think of the first route Fate, having come at it from presumably knowing all about Zero and of course UBW.

I'll definitely post about it here, when i finish it up....in about 15 years at this rate. It would probably go faster if i could stick it on my tablet or phone.

ANN has some more details from the Sakuracon event.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2017-04-16/aniplex-reveals-more-details-about-fate-grand-order-game-release-in-u.s-canada/.114901

quote:

Launch Plans
Aniplex plans to release the game with content up through chapter 2 at launch. However, Shiokawa clarified that while Aniplex will release content through chapter 2, the application itself will be a newer version than what was available when chapter 2 came out in Japan. The North American version will include various quality fixes in the app that Aniplex has released in Japan up through this point. Aniplex then plans to update the app with new chapters later.
Aniplex plans to run a campaign for the game before its release, but the campaign might not be the same as the pre-registration campaign that Aniplex ran in Japan.

Similarities and Differences Between Versions
Shiokawa clarified at the press conference that Aniplex plans to import the original game as is to the North American market, and so there will not be any North American- or Japanese-exclusive content such as Servants. However, Aniplex added that it plans to run events and campaigns according to each specific region. Shiokawa said, for example, the game might have a campaign for the anniversary of the launch in North America in the future, or there might be a campaign or event for American holidays such as July 4.
Aniplex plans to run a collaboration event similar to the one in Japan when the Fate/Grand Order: First Order anime came out, but the event for the North American version will coincide with the anime's release in North America, and it may not have the exact same content.

Shiokawa also stated that the North American version will run on the same payment model as it did in Japan, but the pricing might be a little different. The North American version will also have its own in-game support team, and the staff plan to incorporate feedback from fans after the game's launch. The Servants in the game will have the exact same abilities, and the rates for Servants will also be the same.

There's a lot more there, i just grabbed quotes of things i was curious about.

After finally getting around to starting to read through the original VN, some random impressions:

Huh, Saber is shorter than Rin
There really is a lot of cooking
Shirou: an idiot?
Disheveled morning Rin is very good.
There is a shitload of foreshadowing/obvious in hindsight stuff. (I've watched the UBW anime, and learned about the series in various other ways)

Still working my way through the Fate route for the first time; Gil just turned up (RIP Caster) now the aftermath of that is turning everything on it's head; it's great.

I already knew a lot of this stuff, but seeing it actually play out narratively is honestly pretty cool. Like, "no this isn't just a battle royal with legendary figures after all, and all those rules? Well, turn's out they're more like guidelines really"


e: i first posted about starting the vn almost 3 years ago in this very thread. That little hiatus i took after finishing Rin's prologue was a bit longer than i had anticipated.

It actually went even worse than I had anticipated.

I did really like how Lancer is all "not only have I been stuck working with you, who I hate, but you're also the secret master of that rear end in a top hat! :mad: "

a kitten

I mean, it seems like neither Rin nor Shirou trusted him all that much, it's just that their imaginations didn't extend to "draining the life force of a bunch of orphans to feed Gil etc etc".

Yeah! Eat Avalon you smug golden rear end in a top hat.

Shirou: Not injected by bugs, had his Saber turn Alter.
Rin: Not injected by bugs, her Archer (who is also a hypothetical future version of Shirou) turned Alter in FGO.
Sakura & Kariya: Injected by bugs, Lancelot and Medusa have never gone Alter.

Clearly, bugs do not alter you at all.
