I wish I had a screenshot or even better a gif of Taiga putting up her finger guns while a giant "HMM~" floats by in the background because it might be the most I've ever laughed at something in a T-M work.

Fate/hollow ataraxia is super great.



Didn't think to make a gif at the time.

With the FGO KnK collab coming to NA in a few weeks, I decided to watch the movies after learning they're on Amazon Prime's video thing.

Only watched the first one, Overlooking View, so far. It was very interesting, not much explained about the characters but rather enjoyable. Definitely got that Nasu feel. I wonder if there is lots of Nasu style inner monologues and stuff being left out. The music was excellent as well.

One interesting thing I noticed was how dingy and worn down a lot of the scenery looked, not just the Fujou building but other places as well, curiously things only looked this way when Shiki was moving around alone while Touko's office/building and Shiki's apartment seem normal. I can't tell if that's supposed to be something connected to Shiki or if it was just a worn down part of town.

Looking forward to watching more. Also sorry if this isn't the right thread, I know Nasu wrote it but I can't remembering it's properly a type moon thing since it's one of his earliest works.

Watched the First Order movie. It was surprisingly good. If the game is the Time Squad style adventure that the movie promised I might have to pick it up.

If you start now they're running a Fate Zero collaboration event.

You get to watch Adult Waver (possessed by the servant powers of Zhuge Liang) sequence break the 4HGW like some kinda AGDQ Speed runner.

This includes yelling at his younger self a lot and telling him to choke on rice and die. :allears:

Well Lancer Liz is teenaged Barthory who is desperately trying to reject her legacy and deluding herself from it with Idol Fantasies. It's a silly concept, and though she is usually played for comic relief they do manage to do cool and serious stuff with her in CCC, Extella, and FGO sometimes.

CCC has her have a near mental breakdown at one point during the plot when her Cleithrophobia from the way she historically died is triggered and has her begging the protagonist to simply kill her instead.

Then again CCC also has this

Good news, if you liked First Order (Caster Cu is the best!) they’re making a movie and series out of what are considered two of Grand Order’s best story chapters, Camelot and Babylon.

NA/global FGO already has Camelot and will be getting Babylon in a couple months. Camelot was pretty dang good. I can’t wait for animated Bedivere.

Actually even if the grail wasnt corrupted it probably wouldnt be able to realize Kiritsugus wish because (spoiler for Heavens Feel I think?) The completed grail is really just a massive reservoir of magical energy for your typical Mage to use to brute force their way to The Root. Any -wish-requires the user to know a way to use that massive pile of mana to realize their goal, so Dark Ilya/Angra wasnt really lying to Kiritsugu in a few spots

Just remember, as it was originally designed, no one but the Makiri/Einzburn/Tohsaka alliance was supposed to actually win the grail. The whole wish granting thing and ritual combat were just vague promises to lure in patsies. This is also why the classes are inherently unbalanced, with the three Knights (Saber, Lancer, Archer) intended to be superior to the other four.

The completed, charged grail is just one part of process the three families intended to use to reach The Root.

Wasn’t that line Shirou has about Ayako deliberate modified/”punched up” by the dumbass that translated that section?

I’ve heard a few other areas have some “creative translations” but that’s the only one I’ve hear mentioned several times.

Of course this could just be a bullshit rumor that people (including me) keep paroting.

"By the power of my Command Spell, I order you to fight every servant - but do not defeat them. Assess their strength, then retreat."

Not to mention given who his original Master was. Especially given they, a regular human mage, owned a Noble Phantasm themself. An given what the noble phantasm was, any enemy servant trying to use their own noble phantasm is basically hosed.

Yup, if there is a running gag in Fate, there is decent odds it started in FHA.

And yeah, FHA had a lot of Zero teases because it was actively being written when FHA came out in 2006.

[edit] One of my favorite's being Iri's car, and the fact Ilya still has it and likes to drive it herself!




Imagine all the driving skill of Irisviel with someone who can't properly reach the pedals!
