    Fortunately, your summons hasn't called him.

    How bad we talkin' here?
    Shiki has the mouth of a sailor, coke didn't know what was going on in Paradox Spiral, and sometimes cut out stuff entirely to...flow better I guess?

    It's a choice, sure, but while it solves why Kokutou wants her to tone down her language it doesn't actually get the yin-yang girl-boy dichotomy at all.

    Since, you know, girls cuss.

    My problem is that since this has a lot of baggage with Japanese language and gender roles, I'm not convinced that you'd ever have something satisfactory for a 2018 anime audience. It seems, to a layman, that it's an inevitable sacrifice to get enough of the thrust.

    Hi, I'm pressing the both button but it's not working.

    I enjoyed movies first then got a little more from the Coke version. And even to this day I am learning more, but I don't mind that. Even if it ever gets a proper English release we'd still probably be missing something.

    Wait and hope.

    I wonder what the Polish release is like.

    The Faust translation by Paul Johnson of the first chapter is really good. I think you'll miss little from watching the movies if you're observant. The first chapter covers some details that are expanded on in later chapters (particularly 2 and 4) but glossed over in the film version. I don't think this is a problem, since your avatar indicates you're at least somewhat familiar with Tsukihime and everything will be made clear by 4, but if you don't wanna be in the dark till then I guess my recommendation is to read the only chapter translated by Paul Johnson if you can get your hands on it and then watch all seven+ movies. IIRC I didn't fully get Paradox Spiral on the initial viewing and coke just made me more confused, but a rewatch made me understand it better.

    that would just be to over the top

    He can't post (or can he, his temp should probably be out by now?) but prior cases suggest he can and does hear when he's summoned just fine.

    And on topic, read all, watch all, form your own damn opinion.

    How can you even convey that with English, though? And without relying on footnotes or similar?
    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.
