    Kriemhild marrying "Atli" is a thing in the Nibelungenlied, yeah.

    I guess if you take the psuedo-historical route she might also be Ildico and might have assassinated Attila???

    Surtr becomes Fafnir by virtue of being the greediest person in the entire world at that point, yes. It also comes up even earlier in one of Siegfried's interludes, I think?

    In any case, the basic...

    FGO's set in the present day because it's a somewhat real-time thing, but note that Fate/Stay Night and Tsukihime were also set in their years of release and were "present day". Kara no Kyoukai was...

    I guess TsukiRe does open the window to Nasu's previous statements of FGO Part 2 being the "end" of the story leading to some kind of Tsukihime-focused followup.

    You know, if you want to give...

    This is saying "Sion's in FGO, but that doesn't mean that the rest of the cast exists in the world (and humanity's dead, anyhow)". Crossover events so far have literally brought the characters in...

    Weren't the original scenes actually more the opposite of that, especially in Fate/Stay Night? They knew the game wouldn't sell without them, so they gave up and rewrote the story to fit them in. If...

    You can only access the e-shop associated with your account's region, but AFAICT it's fairly trivial to make new accounts for different regions. Just remember that, say, AmADo US can only access the...

    In addition to it probably being more of a vague outline than anything else, I suspect that the explosion of popularity Fate/Stay Night experienced kind of made them change their plans towards that...

    I was actually thinking about Tristan's first FGO interlude, but rewatching it I guess the entire thing is embellished and probably wasn't literally just the Beast of Caerbannog as the "vorpal...

    Although do note that some elements of Monty Python and the Holy Grail are probably real in Nasu because the writers are fuckin' nerrrrrds. FGO's joked around with the Rabbit of Caerbannog in...

    Sanderson's Three Laws of Magic weren't exactly something Rowling was reading since they're from 2007, 2011 and 2013, respectively, and Deathly Hallows was released in 2007. It's also more of a...

    Being able to cast spells indefinitely is pretty common in fiction, you probably just haven't thought about it because a lot of it is heavily mainstream. Merlin and Madam Mim can cast spells forever...

    To give examples, a softer-than-HP system might be something like Narnia (where magic is entirely unexplained and merely serves the purposes of the plot) while a harder-than-TM system might be one of...

    Author fiat, mostly. It's a very loosely-defined system that most of the time boils down to "if a wizard says funny latin and waves his wand then magic happens" but also sometimes has complex...

    More seriously, it could also just be Waver referencing Harry Potter as a way to explain to the readers (and, in-story, Gray). Dude's kind of a nerd at times, and if you want to make a comment about...

    He's kinda-sorta in a FS/N Gilgamesh or Amakusa situation, yeah. If he doesn't get summoned in a timeline then he doesn't really "exist".

    Of course, Fate/Extra characters also get away with this...

    Shirou generating UBW internally is also what's slowly killing him in Heaven's Feel, and why he starts sprouting blades towards the end.

    And Nero Chaos is just all about that internal reality...

    Also, note that Shirou's not extraordinarily messed-up or anything. When you get down to it, he just has a serious case of survivor's guilt.

    IMHO "alien common sense" sounds more like Shiki...

    well, Shirou's a robot at that point (but also a lifelike touko-bot so, y'know)

    but also sometimes that just happens, especially if the plot demands it

    If you really have to transpose it to the Seven Deadly Sins, it's arguably more Envy.

    Her name is just "Rider", as a reference to her original character literally just being Medusa. They changed Kohaku and Akiha to MC--kun and his grandma, but Reiter's name is much closer to the...

    Hey, nothing ventured nothing gained. It's easy to fake as "oh, I was just testing you", but at the same time it's probably worth remembering that her Assassin is right there. Not-Shinji sure is...

    Nah, Dullahan's correct. 人 read as "man", the other kanji split into 王 for "king" and 里 for... probably "country" I guess. More like "Kingdom of Man", I guess, but that's kind of playing hopscotch...

    It's more just that Fate/Grand Order, even in the GUDAGUDA events, is slightly more serious than Koha/Ace. Or has more editorial oversight, I guess.

    They did feel it worth noting that Nobu's stats...
