I intended to stay out of this but I really have to say something. Oh I suggest you reread that statement. Not once does he say that he ONLY lost his memory. He only says he lost his memory and that what he lost is unimportant. Follow it through logically EMIYA lost his memory through the failed sum...

Besides, magi don't hate technology. Alchemists are considered magi, but rely completely on technology (as I understand it). Yes but they rely on magical technology. Not Science as such. It really does boil down to arrogance, I mean in Fate/Zero you see Lord El Melloi decry his opponent's use of ph...

I'd use virtualbox. Yes it's fully emulated windows but it works (almost) perfectly and you won't need any special tricks.

Topic: Why do you think Archer is GAR?
Replies: 129

Why is Archer so GAR? He is essentially the embodiment of the concept that a human being can gain powers rivaling gods and demons through pure effort. Among the servants, he is the one that is closest to a human being. A nameless hero with no legends written after him nor monuments built to honour ...

Some of his more powerful weapons, like Kaldbolg in BP mode would have filled the hall with fire, which would also have harmed Illya. Since it's unlikely that he was willing to hurt her, it's quite possible that he restricted his assault power on purpose.

At the moment they are. The only thing stronger would be hydrogen fusion weapons. At least in terms of practicality. Well I still think Nasu has a thing against modern weapons, or doesn't want to deal with them in his stories.

A good example of a famous gun would be the Colt .45 revolver. There was a saying at the time "God made man, Colt made man equal". Or someone like Vasily Zaitsev would make an impressive counter guardian. With 300 confirmed kills in one of the most brutal wars ever fought. That's still bellow Simo H...

He would, if he's from something resembling Fate or UBW, he'd have seen gil before. Since he and Tohsaka saw Gil talking to Sakura during the prologue, he'd definitely recognize him.

Hm, just commenting on what Rufus (I think) said, where Sakura was compared to a serial killer. That's not a good comparison. Here's a better one: Consider a loved one (your mom, perhaps) becoming a carrier for a highly infectious disease that kills people horribly. Everyone he or she comes into co...

I agree with Rufus completely at this point on basically all his points, but I want to give a real life example... The Unabomber, Mr Theodore Kaczynski, he'd still be with us if his brother hadn't turned him in. Rufus, you're pretty much thinking like a robot or a computer. Reality don't work that w...

- 2 - What I can tell for your statements is that feelings aren't nothing really important for you, as seems that for you are conditional... Then, please, forget about Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni. I saw that coming . So tell me, how is love really unconditional? Even in a fantasy setting; he had no t...

Shirou has Avalon and Archer may be able to produce a copy on demand. Actually as I get further in, these things just keep cropping up. When Rin was taunting Shinji I was wondering "Do you want to provoke him or what, isn't the objective to cause LESS damage?". Fate/HF is like a car crash, it's so t...

Interesting thought, Kotomine says that he can't save Sakura because the shock would kill her. Don't we have an item that regenerates humans faster than they can be killed?

These are the words of an egoist and egocentric...in other words of a normal human. I gave this some thought and I disagree. If the people I love are killing/raping/etc.. then the love becomes past tense, I can't love a serial killer. Yes my love is conditional, it's conditional on them not abusing...

Granted, but Sakura isn't completely innocent. If you take one wrong conversation option, she kills Shirou. That's love for you. However, it doesn't say he kills innocent people. It says he kills people who were in pain. But we also know from Fate that a bank robber holding hostages is in pain and n...

I disagree with that assessment, here is why. I've never understood why it was important for his goal to be his own. His personality is whatever he chooses for it to be, all humans are like that. The idea that you somehow need to discover yourself is a sentiment that, to put it bluntly, seems foolis...
