Just a note on day 8 of UBW you might wanna clarify:
► Show Spoiler
Also, note that the savefile is not 'complete' by any means as it is impossible to get the UBW GOOD END with inferno's savefile, so you'll have to start over from the beginning following the walkthrough if you want the good end.

Good job on the FAQ btw. I have one suggestion though, should you choose to follow it, take some time to format the original post so that the answers to each question are masked in spoiler tags right after the question is asked so that whoever's reading can choose to read what's relevant to them and ignore what's not (and don't have to keep scrolling up to check what question X was)

What I mean is:

1. Insert question here?
► Show Spoiler
2. Insert another question here?
► Show Spoiler
etc.

Done~ pity spoilers don't nest. :( They nest on some forum software, and perhaps on different implementations of the spoiler script.

They nest, you have to make it in quotes

Done. Took me a while to realise you had to bury the second level of spoiler tags inside another quote box. @_@

I wish I'd known some of these things when I first started coming here.

Hell, it took me about four days to figure out what an imouto was.

Huh? But that is just common knowledge!....... Well!.... maybe not COMMON knowledge.... but common knowledge in this kinda circles? yes.

I have a stupid question! Are all imoutos considered lolis?

Hah, before I played Fate/Stay Night about a month or so ago, I had absolutely no contact with anything Japanese. Seriously, I watched Pokemon and DBZ when I was eight and that was it for me.

The entire reason I even gave F/SN a chance was because of the line "People die when they are killed" making me laugh my ass off hard. Talk about a weird way to get obsessed with something, but hey, the result is what matters, eh?

Still, so much of this culture seems very, very wrong. Like the massive amounts of loli. I mean, damn, there's a limit to how small the girl can be, people.

Hahahahah! aaah...! yeah, you are very right! Even after having been in contact with this culture for a period of time I still can't understand most of the stuff (besides the language), one of them are the constant rapes present in hentai or whatever, the lolis, the fact that they don't consider an act of racism when they don't let inside certain building non-japanese people, the fixation with super-cute stuff, etc,etc, etc.....

Anyway. You most likely won't understand it completely mostly because of the kind of upbringing you had when growing up. In other words, you aren't japanese, hence you probably won't get most stuff those guys do, at least not first-hand.

You'll note in my answer to 'what is an imouto' that it's a younger sister of any age, but the typical otaku will immediately associate imouto with a prepubescent girl.

A 'loli' (short form of lolita) is a female possessing a child's stature but a "woman's" sexuality. The 'typical otaku' will label any female with a child's stature a 'loli', and thus 'all' imouto are loli.

sorry but the story is still continue and i could get the true ending^_^
Okay, i found the cause: My [Saber Shirou] relationship is still too high

Quote:
Day 8
1. I want to know about Saber before she became a Servant.
1. Go straight home.
3. Apples won't do. Eat some Mandarins, Fuji-Nee.


In the second question i needed to select the second answer, not the first.

eh? just be totally idiotic while ignoring Saber and you will get it.


" i want a special move"
search for Ilya instead of going back to the house where Saber is waiting for you
"hide in the bed"
"i am worried about tohsaka" (ignoring Saber)

it's not that hard.

Just noticed something:

Reading it normally, Q.18 is "What is an imouto"

If you expand Q.17, Q.18 becomes "Is there a prequel? Sequel?" and the imouto question becomes Q.19.

Probably, Q18 was placed inside the spoiler tags of Q17 (?), this essentially means that the prequel / sequel question is effectively hidden from view.

Nah, they weren't. I'd done something weird with the tags (I think because the spoiler tags wouldn't take the quote tags properly), but I've fixed it now. If it's borked somewhere else, do tell me. :)

Hmm... Very useful thread indeed 8)

btw, how about adding something like "What is the difference between Mages and Magus?"

I think many people will like it. :D

Yeah...

Hmm.. Its abit embarassing to admit this, considering that i've been here for quite awhile and stilll quite unsure of the difference...


I guess... From what i've heard of...

The difference between Mages, Magus AND Magi...

The only thing i am certain is that;
Mage=Single Magic User...

Mages=Multiple Magic user of the same kind
