    The garden scene with Rani in Last Encore was framed similarly to when Shinji meets Rei again in Rebuld 3.0.

    I dare say Hideaki Anno had better understanding of Hermeticism than Nasu, but that's not exactly a feat.

    Let me record all of humanity on a tablet, because emerald tablet, get it, even though that whole stasis stuff is entirely unrelated. I mean you could probably interpret Zepia as a gnostic yeeeting against the inevitability set up by the Demiurge, but DoO's acceptance is not very gnostic.

    Something something explaining the laws of universe something something computers. This is Sion's character you're welcome, nobody thought about where it is that metaphysics become actual physics because I wouldn't waste my time reading the Kybalion and Nasu sure didn't

    I mean Nasu has very solid understanding of Matter of Britain and I'll give him that, but he's straight incapable of interpreting western magical traditions without bringing zen buddhism into it.

    I wouldn't say that. His usage of the Armanen runes shows no sign of Eastern esoterism (at least that I'm aware of), for instance.
    (I really wish he hadn't used the Armanen runes, though. Von List and his ilk are a stain on Norse studies.)
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan in the distant past.

    Appropriated and edited to reflect my opinion.

    No, I don't want producer/director Nasu. I want my Mushroom back in the hot seat, for good (or at least another IP, and one where he does the brunt of the heavy lifting).
    McJon01: We all know that the real reason Archer would lose to Rider is because the events of his own Holy Grail War left him with a particular weakness toward "older sister" types.
    My Fanfics. Read 'em. Or not.

    I won't deny his contributions to things that happen behind the scenes, but I will express disappointment in him not showing any indication that he's working on my theoretical, ideal, Type-Moon's Renaissance-inducing new IP.

    Admittedly, there was a lot of interaction in the Mongol era between Hermeticism and Buddhist tradition, with the latter definitely influencing the former and maybe vice versa?

    I admit I don't know the first thing about Hermeticism, personally, but I would wager that neither did the Mongols. And traders plying the Silk Road are more likely to have been concerned with proliferating profit-bearing ideas (gunpowder, for instance) than obscure -even for its time- occultism.

    I mean, I've never heard of a Buddhist presence in Europe at the time, either.
