  1. So is the Inverted Spear of Heaven from JuJutsu...

    So is the Inverted Spear of Heaven from JuJutsu Kaisen a reference to the same weapon? Just had that thought upon reading this.
  2. Half of her knights were....oh wait.

    Half of her knights were....oh wait.

    I mean, that isn't entirely false. That, and Akiha isn't that flat, but anyone is flat as a board compared to Raikou.

    Was there too much concrete oni lore in the remakes?
  5. Once he's fully incarnated, is he really a...

    Once he's fully incarnated, is he really a Servant anymore? Not quite, so even if that is how it works, it probably wouldn't matter to Iskandar.
  6. I mean, Vlov isn't strictly evil, despite being a...

    I mean, Vlov isn't strictly evil, despite being a vampire who thinks nothing of draining people for blood and heat. Makes you wonder how evil most of the DAAs are. I personally think most of them...

    The Tohsaka chose the Grail as their method and prepared their spiritual land for it. This was a collaborative effort among the 3 families to save all of mankind and to reach the Root collectively...

    You know that's not what I meant. Besides, we've been over why I find your pseudo-relativism a goddamn pain, and I don't want to have to litigate this again, even as you toe the line.

    I was...
  9. Iskandar was more an ideal than a person to...

    Iskandar was more an ideal than a person to Waver, especially when he was young, and if I'm not mistaken, part of Case Files is about him growing up and wishing to stand alongside him as an actual...
  10. I just said that not too long ago.

    I just said that not too long ago.

    The way I see it, we as the readers are meant to apply Iskandar's principles of conquest to other areas of our lives, much like how Waver himself did.
  12. Ilya. Her person-shaped container in theory...

    Ilya. Her person-shaped container in theory slowly degrades as more Servants get absorbed into the Lesser Grail, aka her. This also happened to Iri.
  13. Considering that all the Muslim heroes are...

    Considering that all the Muslim heroes are assassin's of the Nizari order, their alignment is to be expected.

    Yup, and also "I'm a not-so-secret reactionary who wants to be the bad guy".

    The Takeda cavalry mostly fell because Katsuyori and his younger generals insisted on a charge against Nobunaga's arquebusiers in terrain not well-suited for a charge. I'm fairly certain Shingen...

    True, especially with feathers.

    Nobunaga was just competent, not invincible. The only reason he beat the Uesugi, Takeda, and latter Hōjō is because he outlived their...

    Yeah, tyrant started as a neutral descriptor for a type of ruler, but then became a pejorative, though that pejorative has remained stable. Also, in a Roman context, I think you're mixing up tyrant...

    Octavian and Charlemagne were still violent conquerors who maintained their power and authority through violence. Charlemagne especially, unless you've forgotten about the Saxons, among other...

    Which ones? I thought it was pretty much Meet, Zoom, or Teams from the beginning of the pandemic?
  20. The Nasuverse always had a more intricate soft...

    The Nasuverse always had a more intricate soft magic system, since the rules are intricate yet ill-defined, and they are defined more by the narrative than the other way round.

    That being said,...

    You basically got it. The function of the Greater Grail was to complete the Third Magic, apply it on a larger scale, and open a path to the Root.

    It somewhat rephrases what Gilgamesh told the crew in UBW, and in a sense it's true, given that he will always twist any wish to it's most destructive possible outcome. Kerry wanted people to stop...

    Despite his love of things in things in the modern world, Iskandar remained resolutely the same person he always was, and as a static character, he facilitated the growth of Waver. I mean sure, we...

    I'm not saying it's a bad thing, just that the fanbase tends to skim over those more unpleasant traits of his. Richard the Lionheart from FSF is a more in-your-face version of this.
  25. True.

    True.
