More like Peach Princess is. I'm betting they 'twisted' the translation just enough to make it match. :P

Shirou is just a masochist
"You sit proudly in this cave , like a Queen of Egypt.
In my service to you , I shall never know rest.
To prove my devotion , I have stolen this ostentatious offering.
But I'll show you things your dark blue eye haven't seen , smiles like a lake in the sun , blossoming like a lotus."

lol!
Probably he is the saddest character in FSN. Considering that he is the main char, he's still mocked everywhere else, even by characters that were created before him!

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

I love this thread. Finally there's something to show the morons who don't realize Shirou's line is only funny because it's out of context.

I just don't get this thread. Is this whole mass posting some kind of forum in-joke, an elaborate troll a la Usenet 1990; or is this just internet memetics at work?
Do not attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by irony.

For the benefit of ILP: in episode 23 of the Fate anime, Shirou says something that got fansubbed back in '06 as "People die when they are killed... that's the way it should be." We got what he meant, but the first half sounded so hilariously dumb it became a meme. That meme grew into a whole "Shirou states the obvious" thing.

But in fact, Shirou was being witty (in a Shirou kind of way). The line isn't just logical in context, it's also a reference to this Japanese cliche about people who are so tough they "wouldn't die even if you killed them". Turns out that line can be found in lots of anime. So this thread is for examples of it.

Side note: the official dub goes with something like "When people are hurt badly enough, they die."
