Fate/Stay Night
« on: June 30, 2015, 10:51:51 AM »
I've read the Visual Novel a long time ago, watched the 2006 anime as well as the 2010 movie by DEEN, Fate/Zero, watched some of Prism Ilya, and the most recent Unlimited Blade Works anime by Ufotable which has now come to an end, and I can easily say that the UBW anime is the best adaptation. I'm currently rereading the Heaven's Feel route in preparation for the HF movie by Ufotable.

I've only really read the VN.  I saw an ep or two of the old anime, and that first one hour thing for UBW.  Can't say I cared for either.  I like the VN a lot, though; Heaven's Feel is probably my favorite route.

I don't really like the Heaven's Feel route because the servants die so early in the route, like Lancer being killed off just to show that True Assassin is a threat. I really don't like Sakura as a character and her voice is really annoying. I don't get why people like her so much but that's why I'm rereading the HF route to better understand that. I would have really liked to see Lancer's past explored in one of the routes but that never happened. I think he's the only servant who hasn't had his past shown.

Maybe they did it in Hollow Ataraxia?

I'm thinking Heaven's Feel's popularity has to do with how dark and depressing it is.

I'm not sure about Hollow Ataraxia since I've never read it.

I think that UBW is the most popular due to how action-packed it is and how the Servants get a lot more focus in that route, especially Archer (GARcher as some people call him). It is definitely my favorite route, with HF being second.
