Not very likely and even if it does it will be like half a grand

Why is that so anyway? Amazon.com tells me that the Kara no Kyoukai box set is 750$, while I bought mine for 120 on amazon.de. Thats not even remotely close.

I hate to break the Grand Order chain, but lets talk Kara no Kyoukai:

How can I get more like that? Am I doomed because TM/Ufotable is just a unique combination? I know poo poo-all about anime, I watched the type-moon care package with UBW/Fate-Zero/KnK, Attack on Titan, Miyazaki-stuff, FLCL and read Dragonball. So I have pretty much no idea whats out there, help me.

Might as well take it to the anime rec thread and point out what specific portions of the things you liked were. For example, from the Miyazaki bit I'd probably wind up saying "Oh, you might like Mamoru Hosoda's films".

If you're OK with not-anime you could always give the FSN VN a whirl so that you can tackle Heaven's Feel because it's starting to look like that movie is not going to be happening any time soon.

True, but if even Baal didn't know KnK when he wrote the op, I figured everyone would just look at me strangely when I say "Something like KnK" in the rec thread.
The other stuff is just the stuff I've seen, no relation to what I'm looking for.

No, but I will. I just want some eye-candy mystery with cool music that takes itself entirely to serious first. Philosophical discussions optional.

Alright, I downloaded this. Get ready for my GO shitposts.

So, I'm a giant sperg and now somehow have a fresh account with Mordred and one with Francis Drake. I think I like Mordred more, but I heard that Drake is the god-queen of gacha games or something?

I just burned a bunch of 3-star stuff to get enough Mana Prisms for a Summon Ticket and somehow got 12 million QP. Not that I'm complaining, I had 300k before, but still, that seems strange?

Also did the Scathach summon and pulled her (yay) and a Kaleidoscope essence. I need a billion more levels before I can think about equipping craft essences (can't even use Scathach right now), but it looks quite strong.

Is there a reason to focus on the story right now unless I want Medea Lily or Saber Rider? I'm just playing around with Chaldea quests, trying to make my team bigger and buffer, although my low-level stamina really isn't agreeing with that playstyle

Also, what do I do with 3-star essences and servants? I have my team mostly set up, do I want a full team of every class too? Or do I just burn those motherfuckers for more Summoning Tickets?

Events have been asking for specific servants lately for event drop bonuses, and you'll probably want one or two of each class and both AoE and single-target NPs for various situations. Personally I just keep one of everyone and burn the dupes once they reach NP5 because eventually I ascend them and do their interludes for the free quartz.
Plus they've been adding NP upgrades that significantly improve servants.

Let's see...
Euryale & Ushiwakamaru with upgraded NP are near the top of the damage chart.
Caesar has no upgrade but he's ok if you need a Saber, plus fairly good skills. If he ever gets an NP upgrade he should become p great.
Hassan & Cu're pretty good thanks to Protection from Wind/Arrows (Hassan's still excellent for generating stars if you don't have Gil, Jack or Okita). Proto Cu is a bit worse because his skills are not as good and has a bit less attack.
Jekyll with maxed+upgraded NP can turn into a 3* Berserker with 5* tier HP
Medusa and Alex both have stuns (Alex's only works on humanoids including servants but Servants are the hard enemies so eh))
Lu Bu & Darius as Berserkers are really fragile but their NPs are fine, give'em a NP CE
David can give everyone Dodge
Robin Hood has powerful damage because of a quirk of his NP (debuff before NPing)
Arash is funny to use as a suicide bomber
Medea has Rule Breaker to clear debuffs and can spam it
Andersen has good and frequent buffs

Pretty sure I already burned everyone on that list besides Alexander and Cu're (who I can't find?) :downs:
I'll keep everyone from now on, definitely have to upgrade my inventory size though, since I'm so stacked with Xp cards for classes I don't have right now. So far I've been only keeping my 5-stars and my F/SN servants, burned everything else into Summoning tickets for Scathach. Its a bit dumb in hindsight, but since I actually got her I can't really complain.

Hassan is available through Friend summon, right?

Meanwhile, despite playing since almost the beginning(started about a week late) I still haven't been able to draw a single gold Saber aside from Siegfried, of whom I've drawn two. Just spent my remaining four tickets along with a 10 roll in an attempt to get Mordred, but the only draw of relevance was a Frankenstein. But singular ticket draws two days ago cheerfully gave me two Scathachs. Bringing my total of unique 5*s I've ever drawn up to 3(Tamamo, Waver, Scathach), and four total.

Meanwhile I've 2 5* Sabers :shobon:

I've been abusing the hell out of a lvl90 friend Okita and is every 5* like that or is she just broken? Her Quick cards produce stars like crazy (and for some reason also fill my NP bar), Arts + 2 Quick brave chain basically fills my NP bar from 0 to 100 and she casually critted a berserker for 50000 during a normal buster chain.

Also can someone tell me whats in the 160 Mana Prism bag? I bought the 16 Prism bag yesterday and it had some pretty cool stuff (8 stat cards, 2 gold tickets and 20000 friend points) in there, is it the same in bigger?

Can you number wizards tell me if I should use a Brave Chain with 1 or 2 buster cards or a Buster Chain if I want pure damage? Without stuff like Mad Enhancement

I can beat Jeanne, probably easier now that I've figured out how to edit my party ordering and now have the CE's; it's just takes 40 minutes. :v:

My lvl90 friend Scathach literally oneshots her (and Tesla, no suprise there). So get a Scathach friend I suppose?

How good is Heroine X? I wanted to save my stones for another Okita gacha, but I'm stacked with Sabers already and her attacks/NP look pretty cool too.

I finally did the lvl90 quest with only using my command seals and I was pretty happy about it (it was close).

My 3 5-stars have sucked literally every bit of luck out of me, I haven't pulled a single 4-star so far. Since I started around new year I don't even have Caster Elisabeth or Santa Alter, I just want a gold servant thats not a saber.

So to keep Assassin Shiki after the event all I have to do is clear room 504, right? Because I really don't think I'm gonna be able to finish all the quests.

Yes.

Try to finish all the rooms up to 604 though, so you get all the ascension materials for Shiki
