    And now you reminded me of Kiritsugu going ham in narration.

    Does that mean the contents of FHA should be taken into account then instead?

    Asking fans to not autistically pick apart every continuity mistake and enjoy the story as it's own thing is obvious "ass-covering" and just shows that Nasu knows his audience.

    nah, i wouldnt count that as one

    for me, ass covering is when make excuses about the mistake that is said and done

    pre-warning like this is different in my book

    I wouldn't call it ass-covering anyway because of the negative connotations, he's just asking people to not get stuck on unimportant details, and that wouldn't change no matter if it's pre or post mistake.

    Nasu brings it on himself by making a 'in depth' magic system and doing so much exposition.
    With the way the keep adding shit to gils vault, soon he will have the root in it.

    Life is short, we don't need to shitpost at eachother about nasu.

    Or you could just, you know, let it be and understand that there will be inconsistencies and parallel worlds covers that just fine.

    continuity in story has nothing to do with magic system and its exposition

    And you miss the point entirely, I mean it invites the mindset to look at the details and nitpick.

    Sure but it's not nasu writing, it's urobuchi. The postface made it pretty clear nasu didn't want him to be limited by the stuff in FSN in terms of characters and story. Which is what nasu does with all the writers really, let them write how they want while keeping an eye on the 'in depth' magic stuff.
