i still don't understand why people like HF so much.......i cried only 2x when i was playing Fate/stay night.....
the 1st one is about Saber's past and the second one is when shiro vs Archer(tear of GARness^^).....in HF.....looks like just plain old reality to me....nothing deep whatsoever.....
okay...Sakura is killing people and Shiro still decide to help him no matter how bad she is ....so???he's still sacrificing himself to help other....just 1 person not many....no big difference.......everyone said normal ending is sad but i think"Eat that b1tch. That's what you get from become emo"..
so if i have to give score about route
Fate:8(10 with the realta nua final ending)
now i know why Sakura is 6 in character ranking....bad character and plain and emo.
Eh? HF was great because of
how they made some of the lesser understood characters (why Kirei wants to 'kill' everyone/how he hated Kiritsugu because he threw away the emotions Kirei so desperately wanted to feel, instead of feeling certain ways for all the wrong reasons) actually have an interesting back story that explains why they go crazy (the way Sakura gradually descends into madness, then snapping is well done and believable) or how they are. Seeing Rin's cold side made it all the more interesting, making you feel mixed emotions about her, especially in the bad ending where if you had let her use a geas on you, she coldly locked Shirou in place, ignoring his pleas as she went and killed her defenseless sister.
To summarize, the writer (Nasu was it?) did a great job of showing how the characters tick.
For me, I'd rate the endings:
Fate: 7 (little dull, hate how Shirou acts in this one, though there were some pretty funny scenes that made it memorable)
(well written, had more thought process from the characters with what move they'd make next and actually had situations that looked pretty bad, without any real obvious solutions
that didn't get their hearts torn out or skewered with fifty thousand weapons
HF: 9 (For previously stated reasons..... I hated the whole
LUST WORMS THAT ARE PHALLIC BUT TOTALLY DIDN'T HAVE TO BE CALLED LUST WORMS OR LOOK PHALLIC TO BE CONSIDERED SOMETHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY! OOOoOooOOOO
