Lancer (berserker) will not have enough sanity to use Gae Bolg, and he will also lose much of Lancer's skills with the lance. Lancer as a berserker will behave like Hercules, just whip people around with a lance. Remember Lancelot dominates as a berserker because he has Eternal Arms Mastery. Normal...

At the time of the Archer vs Berzerker battle, Rin has one command mantra left. Using the last mantra will dissolve the contract, so I suspect it may turn into a situation similar to that in UBW: Archer goes rogue and tries to kill Shirou. Furthermore, the Shirou in this case is even weaker than th...

I believe it was a pair of Sabres summoned by a pair of twin sisters, I am not too savvy about the details, someone else might know more.

Although the system is pretty lenient, you need to remember there are statistical parameters that must be met. For example, Emiya has what cut out to be the perfect Sabre: he has a ton of swords, even his alignment is right, but his parameters are pathetic as a heroic spirit, so he only fit into Arc...

I am not very into the "doormat" stock manga character that Sakura represents, but I think Shirou chose her subconsciously, whether or not he was aware of it. Fate and UBW pretty much elaborate on how Shirou attempted to convince himself, to rationalize to himself the necessity to pursue his borrow...

The age-old "how did Archer lose to Berzerker" question... The simple answer is that, it needs to be done. Only after Archer's lost can Shirou and Sabre's victory seems miraculous in comparison. Based on background information, we can rationalize the result regardless whether or not Archer wins or ...

@abscess, Ya, I agree with you. I can see the problem too. Sqeezing Fate in two hours will be terrible, but leaving background information out will confuse many people. Heck, even the Fate anime didn't explain many things clearly, and they had more than 10 hours. Also, they would have a hard time tr...

@Raitei, Doh, you got me good. Shirou did use Excalibur, which he projected. In fact, he used rule breaker and even projected a working copy of Jewel Sword of Zelretch. So indeed, he can invoke the true power of the NP he projects minus one rank. Then what the hell is with Shirou's comment in UBW re...

YOU WANT LIVE ACTION?
I recommend you to an adaptation called Fate/Stay Knight.

And just for fun, and no, it is not a screenshot of Fate/Stay Knight, I will spare you of the torment.

First, I would like to clarify my use of words. USE: Using Gae Bolg would mean I stab you with it or flailing it around, nothing more. ACTIVATION: As in unleashing the noble phantasm, sending Gae Bolg straight to your heart. About Caladbolg, the English version of the spell is "I am the bone of my ...

I think a lot of people here misunderstood me. I was refering to having an Advent Children style photorealistic rendition of Fate, even as some sort of OVA. Wouldn't it be cool to see your favorite noble phantasms in action in 3D? (Think GoB, UBW, Tsubame Gaeshi... :shock: )

@WingZero: I never denied that alcohol abuse can damage the liver, but in moderation, it is actually good for you. Your liver contains enzymes that can degrade alcohol naturally, that is why you don't die from a 12 pack, only hangover. However, one shot of spirit a day can indeed lower the risk of c...

I have been wondering for a while, it will be really cool to summon a "true" berserker. By true I mean summoning the original berserkers, the ones in the Scandinavian Sagas. Catalysts will be simple, since axes, brooches, and pelts should be easy to find. Well, at the moment, I cannot recall any fam...
