How Shinji is better than everybody thinks...

It's alright, we feel your pain. Noone wants to admit being gar for Berserker.

it's said in f/ha, when shirou (avenger?) asked rider about perseus, she said he was a successful version of shinji. and kansho posted a picture of him here (though I don't think so), most people think that he looks like shinji.

Well, Medusa hates Perseus, but it doesn t change the fact that Perseus seems quit awesome. And as it is stated previously, he is one of the most famous greek hero, just behind Herakles i think. And the purpose of this parallel is to point out the fact that a not broken Shinji could be also charismatic. Arrogance isn't always a bad point. It can make a caracter sounds much more bad ass when mixed with other qualities but Shinji is lacking here (we can draw a parallel with castration i think to describe the problem of Shinji. don't laugh ffs!!!)

And Perseus killed Medusa because she became a very dangerous and huge monster who devours men. She also devours her own sister in the Nasuverse. I have a picture from F/HA where Perseus is fighting Gorgon and well, i guess he was not sooooo confident in his chances when he face her ^^.




Here a CG of Perseus from F/HA

A successful version of Shinji? Isn't that what I said? Douche bag with borrowed Noble Phantasm?

Ahaha, I have nothing against Perseus, but the Nasuverse Greek legend is kind of turned on its head.

Well that whole post is the idea i was trying to point out :)

Also to others,
Rider when describing him said a successful shinji, as he had many features of shinji, except for the fact that he was very powerful and heroic.
This also could have a reason why Sakura summoned Rider specifically as she encountered a person just like shinji in her life, thus her and sakura have a relation there (As well as the fact they lived similar lives)

I know, Bazett is like Kazuki and Lancer fused in one. I want one of those blood-drenched, transforming metal spheres.
