Re: About Heavens Feel [spoilers]

That's a pretty comprehensive explanation. However, the Minor Grail, is not necessarily a magus or a homunculus. It can really be anything. Like Kotomine described, the chalice in his church was once upon a time the Minor Grail. The Minor Grail just needs to be a vessel that can collect souls, which...

Re: Servant Stats and Rankings (spoilahz)

Souichirou is fast, but he is not as fast as a bullet. True Assassin's dirk is very fast, but remember no matter how fast they are, they travel in a straight line. As long as Sabre can detect when the dirks are thrown and see the path they travel, she can parry them easily. However, Souichirou's Sna...

Re: What games are you playing & recommendations

The .hack franchise is really complex and the premise is very promising. It is just that the anime series produced from it are mediocre at best and fails again and again to appeal to the majority of the audiences. The anime simply do not do the games justice. I think if the anime are more successful...

Re: Life Size Figures

This just confirms my theory that the Japanese have plans to one day fabricate an army of these and take over the world. This life-size figure is probably a model to present to the government for a feasibility study, disguised as a tourist attraction. This is kind of like reverse psychology you know...

Re: ? Shapeless Island ?[Spoilers]

I agree Rider probably did it for pure laughs, because if she desperately needed energy, she could have just drained blood from a few humans like she did before in the park. It is way more efficient that way and not running the risk of being chopped up by Sabre a second time. Again, you have to reme...

Re: ? Shapeless Island ?[Spoilers]

Yes, there isn't much to go on from the text, saying any more would be fan-wanking. However, I think you are confused about Kybele and Breaker Gorgon. Kybele is the Mystic Eyes of Petrification. Rider cannot control her Kybele, so to prevent her allies from being turned into stone, she uses Breaker ...

Re: ? Shapeless Island ?[Spoilers]

Yes, I am aware of that too, because I remember Rin said something similar on the first day when they teamed up. Perhaps Servants become less alert when they sleep (highly unlikely), or Breaker Gorgon was cast from a distance.

Re: ? Shapeless Island ?[Spoilers]

Rider probably has great respect for Shirou rather than hostility. You can discern this when you read the scene in which Rider walked Shirou out of the Matou residence. Also, there is a two-way memory flow between Servant and Master, so Sakura probably fed Rider a lot of fond memories about Shirou. ...

Re: What's your favorite BGM?

I think my choice of songs will be biased by its context (where the song is used). "Into the Night" did not catch my attention as the title page song, but it created a great atmosphere in the scene which Shirou casted Unlimited Blade Works. "Sword of Promised Victory" is also great, particularly in ...

Re: ? Shapeless Island ?[Spoilers]

The scene did not offer an explanation, but the side materials help in understand what transpired in that scene. First of all, you need to know about Rider's Breaker Gorgon (her eye-patch). Breaker Gorgon is a seal that traps the opponent's mind within the user's mind. It is essentially an offensive...

Re: Servant Stats and Rankings (spoilahz)

I don't think Berserker can foresee the result of an upcoming confrontation. His "Eye of the Mind" is more like "spidey sense". Berserker blocking the Broken Phantasm illustrates how this ability works. It only helps him sense immediate danger. Mmm, ya, but I do agree that Ilya parading around the i...

Re: Ryougi's multiple personality

You can just put a note of spoiler in the title to avoid the grief of Unlimited Spoiler Tag works. "Akasha Shiki" is actually the real and original Shiki. The male and female Shikis are aware of each other, but neither of them are aware of the Akasha Shiki. Because of this, I personally think that t...

Re: Servant Stats and Rankings (spoilahz)

Mmm, I would buy TheRedArcher's argument. So basically a servant is not "uber" in any department unless he/she has a C or above. From Arai's wording, it seems that a normal human enhanced to the absolute maximum can reach a rank of C. Assuming Rin is top notch at enhancement sorcery, then this would...

Re: Servant Stats and Rankings (spoilahz)

Well, considering it's stated that Caster has an exceptionally high mana capacity on her own, now that she's freed from her previous Master, and that she's augmenting her own supply by stealing mana from Fuyuki's population and channeling it through a ley line, I doubt that mana was the issue. Cast...

Re: Who has the biggest ass in Type-Moon (rear spoilers)

I doubt there will ever be any, as the majority of the readers are males, and the majority of the males do not care about other males' three sizes. However, if you are comparing any anatomical parts, Berserker would surely win with Iskander coming as close second, probably.

Exhibit A: Caster, with E rank STR, D rank END, and C rank AGI. Are we really supposed to believe she has the strength of 10 men, that her body is 20 times as durable as a normal human body, or that she's 30 times as agile as a normal person? If so, what do we make of the fight scene where she gets...

If it is plot, I don't see the problem, because the core of the route is building up to the revelation of the Shirou/Archer relationship. Everything else is just accessory, and can be condensed or removed if required. My main concern is how they will address the background information issue. If they...

Re: Anyone else thinks KnK 6 is really lackluster? (SPOILER)

Well, it is almost certain that the cannibal guy will not match the sophistication of Alaya Souren. The only possible redeeming quality of the remaining movie(s) will be the potential action scenes, so let's hope it delivers.
