Just two weeks until the one hour premiere! With the inevitable tragedy of Emiya Kiritsugu and the 4th Holy Grail War just around the bend (along with all the inevitable fighting GIFs and wallpapers, if the Kara no Kyoukai movies are any indication on UFOtable's part), it's high time for a dedicated thread I think.

Those of you curious about Fate Zero should go play the original Fate Stay Night, since Fate Zero assumes you've played all three routes and spoils the shit out of them, especially Heaven's Feel. For those of us who already know all this shit, Extras is scanning the manga, so here's the first chapter of that.

I wouldn't call KNK "trash" per se, but Nasu himself derides the novels as a product of his inexperience and the movies couldn't possibly work as films without cutting shitloads of the dialogue, and KNK is so damn esoteric that without EVERY line of dialogue it doesn't really make much sense, so you end up with what is basically just a bunch of fight scenes and pretty music.

Oh well, it was a fuck of a lot better than the UBW movie at least. Fate Zero should be easy to do by comparison to either one though, because it's from a series of good old fashioned novels rather than branched visual novels (thus solving the UBW issue) and isn't 90% technobabble about Akasha and shit (thus solving the KNK problem).

Though on the other hand, it's a TV series so I doubt there's a anything comparable to the budget of KNK, but you never know I suppose.

The art is extremely rough yes, but I think it sort of suits the mood of FZ. On the other hand, the faces just get plain old off model a lot. I'm waiting for more chapters to make a judgment call personally.

Well as far as that goes I have to confess that while that IS true, I played Fate Stay Night after having literally EVERY TWIST spoiled for me (which is way more than Zero reveals) and I still rank it as a favorite game which made me tear up on two occasions.

I seem to recall the whole circling thing being something they were actually doing in the novels but I could be wrong, and it does look goofy in motion.

If I had any complaints it'd be that I do miss the looks inside Kiritsugu and Kirei's heads but we don't have time for that kind of internal dialogue and it still works so whatever. What they COULD have fixed was not having a JPOP OP and ED because it really does not fit at all.

>> No. 66947
No, they were just sitting down and talking. They could've spiced stuff up though by showing the characters being talked about doing things. For example when Kotomine mentions Kiritsugu being a Mage Killer the anime could've shown some scenes of Kiritsugu walking through battlefields, sniping, etc. as Kotomine narrates. And vice versa. Would make things look more lively as well as give TM newbies some shorthand to catch up.

AAAAAGHHH. I was not ready for that at all. Even being vaguely familiar with some of the characters from FZ, I didn't know Caster was so fucked.
Iksander was great though. I found the speech he made about the differences between what makes a thief and what makes a king interesting. I'm just really looking forward to him dicking around with Waver.
As for the series as a whole, it seems off to a good start. Even though the first episode was mostly exposition with some bad choices from a directorial standpoint (the dead camera angles as >>66827 pointed out), it still held my interest. The second episode was definitely more entertaining though.

Way ahead of you bro. Actually the remark about Rider's sword was partly because (as it turns out) the Type-Moon artists don't actually know stuff about swords, and the anachronistic/nonsensical designs in the VN kind of bothered me. But that's a non-issue compared to the awfulness of the F/sn anime... Really glad this one turned out better.

Nah, see, I still really enjoyed it, and all the other anachronisms and crazy changes were wacky and fun. It just surprised me that they made this huge long story about a guy who Knows Stuff About Swords™, and did a bunch of legitimate research to be able to describe all the weapons that showed up, yet their actual visual designs were a total grab bag.

Say... Couldn't Jack the Ripper be summoned as an Assassin? It has to be someone whose identity was unknown, right?
>> No. 67466
Good question!

There have been two proposed version of Jack in the Nasuverse. The first is from Fate/Strange Fake, a goofy ass "official" fanfic Ryougo Narita of Baccano fame and Durarara infamy wrote as an April Fools Joke and later ended up in the official TM fan. It was written as a prologue to a VN that didn't actually exist and... well just read this.
Jack himself was a Berserker that could take any proposed form of Jack The Ripper since the real one was never discovered. Since he was a bloodthirsty maniac in real life, Mad Enhancement made him completely sane.

The other, far shittier version of Jack was one of a number of good reasons that the MMO Fate/Apocrypha got canned.
This one is actually an Assassin.

Having said that the RULE for the canon Nasuverse (even if Apocrypha were made it'd be a different universe like Extra) is that only the 19 Hassan-i Sabbāh, leaders of the Hashshashins who passed the name between them. This is because thanks to the original nature of the war precluding the summoning of evil spirits combined with the fact that a "famous" assassin is generally not a good one leaves only them as an option (note for Zero: Kirei's Hassan, the Hundred Faced Hassan who fractured his personality to sort out all his different skillsets, gets a body per personality. The downside is that he's the only Hassan that couldn't use the line's trademark Zabaniya NP, since it required modifying the body.). As for the samurai Assassin from Fate and Unlimited Blade Works in the original Fate Stay Night, he's a nameless farmer, a wraith summoned into the role of Sasaki Kojirou, who's an exception since he was summoned by another servant and thus a glitch in the system.

I'm actually kind of okay with Astolfo's actual design but once you add the character to it it becomes terrible.

But yes Extra and ESPECIALLY Apocrypha are serious mixed bags designwise. The worst of the Apocrypha lot in my opinion are Spartacus, Jack the Ripper, and Siegfried. On the other hand, Shakespeare and Apocrypha Vlad look fucking awesome and I wish the latter was the Vlad in Extra instead of the lame killer we get in that.

Seriously Nasu? Why are you building up all of these fictional stipulations and rules if you're literally just gonna have a character show up and prove to be the one exception almost 99% of the time? Why don't you establish the laws AND THEN have the characters duke it out within them?

In F/sn it seemed more like none of the characters were really clear on what the rules actually were, and since you heard everything from them, your information left out important stuff about dangerous loopholes.

This is our first major change from the novels. In the books, Rin just goes out, stares into an alley where a load of magic power is coming from, realizes that Aoi was right when she told her "forget this missing friend," then passes out from fright. Kariya turns out to have been what she was sensing and takes her off. No Uryu encounter, no saved children, just misery.
>> No. 69088
When does the OST come out by the way?
>> No. 69105
By "no saved children" did you mean her schoolmates just died in the book, or did those characters never existed?
>> No. 69106
That sound just then came from the depth of the alleyway by the house she was hiding next to, and it’s probably a stray cat sifting through the rubbish and knocked over some cans. But it’s hard to determine if someone was there.

Rin drew a sharp breath when she looked down on the magecraft compass in her hands.

Unmoving, as if frozen in place, the needle pointed straight towards the direction of the sound.

Something was there; something that emanated unnatural prana was there.


Isn’t this the result you're waiting anxiously for?

You've already gotten some response from your investigation. Isn't that a sign of a good start? Rin planned to go through all suspicious spots in Shinto and check Kotone’s presence one by one. Here, the first place she checked, already has something.

Come now, let's step into the inside of the alley and check what's there.


Maybe there are some clues about Kotone right there. Or maybe, Kotone herself is there.

“Absolutely not!”

There's no reason to hesitate. If not, there would be no meaning coming this far. You are not a coward. You would not do things such as abandoning your friend as well. That's because you are one of the Tōsaka with a long and distinguished history. So you have to prove that you're brave and can become your great father's successor.

“No no no absolutely not no no no no noooooo…!”

A wet sound could be heard. Splash, splash, Something lurking at the deep inside the alley was breathing, as if sneering her, creeping towards her.

Rin finally realized that this journey of exploration, aimed to recover her best friend, was definitely not as easy to complete as she thought.

Kotone’s figure wasn’t in the depth of the darkness.

Even if she was in there, she wouldn’t be the same Kotone as before.

If she was thinking of finding Kotone in the darkness of Shinto, from the start, Rin should have aimed to find Kotone's ▉▉▉▉ ▉▉▉▉ instead.


In fact, Tōsaka Rin possessed excellent aptitude to be a magus.

She had never seen a demon, nor had she been touched by one, but from mere instinct she could tell she was in a very dangerous situation right now.

To study magecraft, the first thing one need to do is to learn to accept and know death – this is the first lesson of every apprentice magus.

That inescapable, incomprehensible, purely despairing feel of ‘death’.

On that day, little Rin felt the essence of magecraft from that experience.

She couldn’t move; she couldn’t even yell. A terror unbearable to ordinary humans was more than enough to crush such a young girl.

Strange buzzing sounds started by her ears, and Rin thought it was triggered by the icy cold despair pressing down on her heart.

Her thoughts were probably starting to destroy her five senses’ perception.

A humming started, monotonous yet maniacal, as if a swamp of giant wasps were raiding towards her…

The buzzing became steadily louder. It was approaching her.

In the blink of an eye, the stuff on top of Rin’s head rushed inward like a cover of black fog.

That thing quickly passed above Rin like a turbid current, striking the depth of the darkness in a split second.

And then those bloodcurdling screams sounded without end, screams that sounded like boiling a cat alive in a pot of hot water – but it was definitely not the sound of a cat.

This was already the limit of Rin’s endurance.

Her sight dimmed, and her footsteps faltered. The moment before she was about to fall, someone took her in his hands.

In front of her eyes was a monster with only the left side of his face visible.

That face, ugly beyond description, was embedded with a dim and lightless eyeball.

But his right eye eluded a deep loneliness and melancholy.

I think I have seen this expression somewhere before...

Rin thought so before she lost consciousness.

>> No. 69127
So did she find it and it was eaten by the shoggoth or was it more just she didn't have any hope of finding her and ended up bumping into a shoggoth instead?
>> No. 69132
She realized there was no hope.
It's Kariya. There's no Caster familiars or anything in the book. She just thinks he's a monster because he lives in an alley, is swollen in weird places, and has a shitload of magical power (or rather the invisible Berserker with him does).

Also I never noticed this when looking in the novel artwork but, that soldier with long black hair is totally Waver in his El Melloi the 2nd form. Or at least it looks like him. Seeing as we know that servant summoning ignores the laws of time and space because well, 5th War Archer, I'm going to go ahead and say that Ionian Hetaroi calls Iskander's soldiers from the future too.

Just another neat touch, like the Fleur de Lis on Caster's hideout door in the last episode, although since the guy in the spoiler WAS in the novel artwork we can't give UFOtable credit for this one.

Two, one dealing with Team Saber moving to the Emiya household and another where Caster transforms.

The hairstyle is a little different and the head seems a bit too narrow for Lord El-Melloi, although honestly I'm not sure if that's just due to QUALITY or not. Could be Hephaestion though, and if it is I'm sure a billion crazy theories could come out of that.

That's what characters like him are telling me. These guys can't be trusted, they're antisocial, misfit nutjobs and can't exist without freaking out or harming people, they're scary. I don't see anything complex, they lack empathy and scruples due to some kind of chemical imbalance.

Kotomine was born a cold, evil mofo, and he died as one. Hell, you could even make the argument that he never really 'lived', and his death was just a really, really late abortion.

A Hollow, violent man who died hollow and violently and made a lot of people suffer because no one had the good sense to off him while the offing was good.

I kind of forget how Magic Circuits work. Are Kiritsugu bullets as effective against Servants as they are against mages?
>> No. 69852
Kiritsugu's bullets don't do anything against servants, not even the magic ones. That's why he didn't shoot Kayneth way back at the standoff in the warehouse district, because Assassin was perched somewhat nearby and even the weakest Servant can't be hurt by low level attacks like that.

As for the exact mechanics of circuits, that varies way too heavily based on the mage and the magic, so there aren't any hard and fast rules. Generally speaking though, the further down a line of mages you go, the more circuits each new generation has (and of higher quality too), plus they're supplemented by the accumulated knowledge and power of the family crest. Kiritsugu cripples Kayneth because circuits are connected to a mage's nervous system, and disrupting one screws over the other.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh...thanks for spoiling the end of the Epic of Gilgamesh for me, jerk face! Aaaaaaaaagggggghhhh! Use spoilers! Geez!
>> No. 72235
I'm not really familiar with the original epic, but in Nasu history at least, Gil turned down the Goddess of Fertility because he knew she was crazy, so she goes whining to her dad, who unleashes the Bull of Heaven on Uruk. It causes 7 years of plague, famine, etc before Gil and Enkidu managed to bind and put it down. Since they killed the beast of the gods one of them had to die, and since Enkidu was made by the gods in the first place, it was him.

Sexy, sexy BD updates.


I'll be making a new thread then, so make use of this one before I kill it with an image dump I guess.

To be honest, the BD edits seem forced and in some cases make the scenes worse.
>> No. 72850
Did they fix episode 11's QUALITY? Or episode 6's stubby arms and bodies?
>> No. 72851
The hell do you mean "forced?" And how do they make any episodes worse?

>Ah I see. It seems Fate/Zero as become popular not only among TYPE-MOON fans or anime fans, but a much larger audience.
*snerk* I for one welcome our new fujoshi overlords.

ALSO UTW had started doing the Bluray stuff now. No torrents until they've got the complete batch ready, but they've got direct downloads up. They're even going to try and setup a fanart slideshow to go along with a translation of the drama CD depicting Irisviel and Kiritsugu's first meeting.

So far they've done a few BD episodes and the first Einzbern Consultation Room.

This'll be really helpful background info to those of you who haven't actually played Fate Stay Night yet even though (or because) I've repeatedly pestered you all to. It's also nice if you just like Iri's voice actress.

This guy covers all the BD changes. They added quite a decent number of scenes, for those of you that haven't read the novels.

Did any other anime outdo Fate/Zero?

What do you mean? Plenty have on a critical and financial scale, considering FZ isn't perfect in either the adaptation or the source material.
