    I feel that Nasu excels at protagonists that have strong and distinct character, which is often accomplished by them being seemingly regular people with deep issues like Tohno Shiki. Hakuno, while they have some character, is his first proper protagonist that fails to live up to that legacy since Arika, and Arika barely even exists. Nikuiman is basically like Angra, and who doesn't like the story bits of Hollow? In this way, Nasu fixes a big issue that Extra had.

    It's a shame that he also adds a million ultimately baffling background things to Last Encore which, while certainly making it distinct from Extra, also make it completely unapproachable to anyone new. Worse, they are of questionable value to the story itself and the legacy it's built on.

    I mean LE has a bunch of issues, but Nikuiman is the good part.

    If that's Last Encore's "Hakuno", I strongly agree.
    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.

    I like the idea of Nikuiman I just don't think it was executed well.

    If the show was longer and developed nikuiman through interactions rather than monologues, I could see it working far better for me.

    Isn't the fault there more the execution of his concept by the author of Apocrypha than anything truly wrong with Sieg himself as Nasu envisioned him?

    What did Apocrypha's author originally plan before Nasu convinced him to put in Sieg?

    You sure he didn't just make it up as he went along? Certainly felt that way to me.

    Pretty sure Kairi and Mordred were planned at least.

    Also, there is the whole thing of Apo being salvaged from the remains of a cancelled Fate MMO idea.

    Not any specific character from SF, but the meta-main character that is their interplay. Oh, Narita.

    I vote strange, particularly Ayaka,Flat and Sigma. I considered voting Guda due to my enjoyment of grandorder and it's level of player presence, but then I remembered that the game also railroads me into being thirsty for female servants especially Mash, so i might not like "Guda" all that much

    There are still unfinished works so I will reserve my vote to the end of them, besides that, Case Files counts as a Fate work? in my mind is Fate/the adventures of Waver.
