Ilya is voiced by the same person right? She sounds really different when she's not acting like the comedic relief/straightman for other people's antics.

I think the only radical Type-Moon overall cast change that took place is that the Tsukihime characters are now all voiced by their Melty Blood VA's? Hell, the VA's from FSN have been the same dating all the way back to the Deen Anime / some obscure Drama CD as far as I know.

Seriously, though. I think part of the charm of most characters is that, despite the other-worldliness that surrounds them, they are people with fundamentally grounded flaws. Except, of course, Shinji.

add a review of how the knk movies were
Later. I've been meaning to rewatch them because I can barely recall the first two beyond the fact that we're presented to them out of chronological order. The third is, unfortunately, kind of hard to forget, taking into account how it starts. :negative:

While Fate/Stay Night has three separate timelines they do have an "order" to them (Fate, UBW, HF). They assume knowledge from previous routes and also have a thematic progression. Maybe you can just jump into the UBW anime though.
Ah, no: I've gone through all of F/SN. I was talking about the Kara no Kyoukai (KNK) movies. Which I've also seen, even if I mostly don't remember the first 2 movies.

My guide to appreciating Fate and its adaptations/spin-offs is as thus: The more screen-time you have Kana Ueda playing Rin, usually the better.

Also, he still draws, and now he can do plenty of funny faces and junk. Here's an end-card that he did for gag anime D-Frag! a couple of years ago.


Plus, he still does FGO character designs. Sakura Saber is probably my fave "newer" design of his.

Kirei's deal (in an abridged explanation, I guess) is this: (spoilers, because that's the kind of chicken I am) He can only truly be happy by being a murderous, evil bastard, but he still has a conscience and because both that and the way he was raised, he understands that he's a fundamentally horrible person for enjoying doing evil deeds, but at the same time, it's the only way he gets any sort of feeling about anything. Once you get to the creamy center of Kirei, he's an interesting sumbitch.

vvv e: Sort of what Endorph says, yeah. vvv

Ayako Kawasumi and Kana Ueda have been voicing Arthuria and Rin on and off for 14 years now. :aaa:

Like I know that's relative "chump change" compared to, like, Masako Nozawa having voiced Goku on and off for almost 34 years or Kiyoshi Kobayashi voicing Jigen for 50 years with only one exception, but still! That's an assload of years.

Yeah I think some flashbacks of kariya, aoi, and tokiomi as teens would have gone a long way. Certainly more useful to the plot than 'btw rin met a serial killer when she was 10'
Wasn't Rin's chapter also:
  • A small chapter in the novel that got endless-eight'd up to episode length?
  • The actual novel ends with her little adventure meeting catastrophic failure?

Isn't the crux of Fate/Apocrypha that Darnic clowned on both the Nazis and Zouken with the classy equivalent of "Nah-uh! Nope! Eat my gently caress, motherfuckers!" and he did so without much effort?

It worked for many of my Fire Emblem playthroughs, tho. One unit takes a hit for the team, the other one goes Vlad the loving impaler on the enemy's rear end.

Or as one of my Echoes playthroughs showed me "Alm & Lukas face-tank while I nurture Clair into becoming a posh flying instrument of murder"

Sometimes I forget that basically all the adults in the main FSN timeline are a bunch of barely functioning fuckups and that, despite having PTSD, Waver/El-Melloi II is probably the most well-adjusted of the bunch.

Luvia does the "Ohohoho!" laughs, wrestles, really just wants to be friends with Rin and SherouShirou. She's not the best but she ain't all bad.

She's basically like Clair/L'Arachel/Maribelle, except maybe not awesome as any of those 3 girls.

I might be a recent returnee to the Fate franchise + asking all these questions because I can barely remember much of the VN in the first place as is, but:
  1. Aren't both of them part of the archery club?
  2. While she normally doesn't talk about her horrifying home life for obvious reasons, Sakura has been going to Shirou's house for a couple years at the start of the story.
It would sorta make sense that Shinji would at least try and keep it civil with Shirou to not arouse suspicions.
