Alright, so, if you have to redo a year, or are taking up a different major in a double-major programme, or are switching to my school from another one ( without having completed your degree there ), you have to pay ~1000€ tuition fee.

If you've completed your degree and are taking up a second one you pay tuition fees for all years of your studies.

So the minimum amount one'd have to pay in Leo's completely unrealistic scenario would be 40,000€ worth of fees, plus ~4000€ worth of some other administrative expenses

Serious Adult Themes are the reason they're making a film, more likely.

I may be blunt by saying that but I don't think that, by itself, Ufotable staff is able to properly make it. Up until now they only copied the script. They are fairly "ok" when we talk about animating a novel. Changing it to makes it suitable on a tv is really hard and they've (if I'm not wrong) never done it before.

I may be blunt by saying that but I don't think that, by itself, Ufotable staff is able to properly make it. Up until now they only copied the script. They are fairly "ok" when we talk about animating a novel. Changing it to makes it suitable on a tv is really hard and they've (if I'm not wrong) never done it before.

What are they changing in relation to the novel (the RN version that is)?

Hmm I personally prefer use of a recognizable visual style that's stuck to and it being used in harmony with what the story is telling at the specific moment, even if the animation is not the most advanced fpsfest with shiny lights and loads of post. In that regard KnK is superior both to Zero and UBW, even if maybe the fights look flashier and more spectacular in the latter. I liked UBWs animation regardless, since it's well done as a product, but it just doesn't have that something extra.

I have some FAINT hopes HF will at least maybe try doing something like this. The flower motifs and the somewhat consistent colour palette they're using in the promo materials is too little to base any hopes on, I realize, but still.

That's what I said. They changed nothing, and here HF needs to be changed. Up until now what was animated and earned a good amount of money was KNK, F/Zero and UBW. Mainstream anime fight with a certain amount of interesting talk = their public. The first part of HF will be uninteresting for that public, that's why for me HF needs to be changed. or at last the first part.

———Does your speed increase when it's an H-scene?
Nasu No, I slow down when it's an H-scene. If it's just a normal H-scene I can finish it pretty quickly, but if I'm writing scripts with a heavy emphasis on its plot, I can't create a discontinuity in the story even if it's an H-scene, and it's very hard to balance parts that's related to the story. After writing something, I'd take a look and say "this is totally wrong" and re-write it. The H-scene needs to be erotic, yet still preserving Shiki's characteristics, it was very difficult. In the end I spent the most time on the H-scenes. Comparatively, you could say the non-H sections are easy, since I just need to write out the story.

The origin of the existence called "Sakura" is "Senpai Lust," which is a fact that transcends biology, characters, and even franchise. As long as there's a Sakura and a senpai, the conclusion is inevitable, it would have happened with or without Zouken's interference.
