    My miscellaneous thought is that if on the off-chance that Hagen von Tronje ever gets into F/GO as a playable or just significant character (since the Interlude with him did not deign to give him a design) then they "pull a Fionn" because I loath the way they depicted him in the Fate/Apocrypha anime and would definitely love a Mulligan.

    Preferably something badass like this (totally not biased at all)

    It is the custom of the Tohsaka family to act with composure and elegance at all times.

    Taking a custom like that seriously must mean that my family originated from a very high-class background indeed.
    Owning this old western-styled mansion is proof of that and on top of it, the Tohsaka family is a bloodline of sorcerers able to use the power of "Magic".
    If you're talking about age, our family has an ancient history.

    Ironic considering she actually is old money essentially IIRC (I recall the Tohsaka were already wealthy even prior to Tokiomi's commercialization success considering all the land Nagato donated for the Grail's construction and placement).

    Mage society in type moon is really like that super millionaire/billionaire families. They also do sacrifices. Seems like that conspiracy theory.

    Yeah, Hagen's design was a bit plain and boring. I do think that GO has become something of a gift that keeps on giving to other Fate media, cause if you need a servant, instead of some generic nobody, you can just throw in literally anybody from GO as a cameo, like in Last Encore or Fionn in Apocrypha. It's be hilarious if they did it and then called it out, like having Siegfried and Diarmuid talking shit about them not looking that good when they knew them.

    I mean, if you can trace your family line back more than 100 years, you're probably from a family with money, even in real life. Like if you know who your ancestor was five hundred years ago and aren't living at least an upper-middle class life, then somebody in your family line really fucked up the old money way of things.

    Probably the most interesting (and hilarious) example of this would be in regards to the current Charles III of the UK. Both of his first and second wives were both descendants of Charles II via his many illegitimate children and assuming Prince William does ascend to the throne upon the death of his father, he will be the first British Monarch to be descended from Charles II (who died without a legitimate heir and so was instead succeeded by his brother James II).

    I keep thinking about the distinction Nasu draws between 80s protagonists and 90s protagonists, Prototype as a very 80s style story about revolutionizing the world and Nasu's future works being more about self change and this leads to me thinking about Manaka and Ryougi as opposite portrayals of omnipotence given humanity. Is the difference between them because of the focus shift from "world" versus "self?"

    I think that’s a very apt comparison, Ryougi always was very “inner” focused, she doesn’t even do anything with her powers more or less in the course of KnK. It was always about filling up her own internal emptiness. In contrast Manaka’s goals have very world sweeping complications, even if it is being done for one person.

    Ya know going through CCC one thing I didn’t expect was getting a better image of why Rin says Caren is her “rival” in HA. Seeing her Secret Gardens kinda made me connect some dots I never did before lol

    Right, it's the difference in perspective on that between Manaka and Ryougi (and more importantly how this reflects Nasu evolving as a writer) that interests me.

    The money stuff is one thing, specifically the idea of collecting money for money’s sake and not to spend it is basically exactly the same as Caren in described in her FGO profile. The other’s the whole submissive angle and all, being completely void of control isn’t exactly Caren’s thing but the whole want to have someone be mean to them and stuff is very much a Caren thing considering Caren is basically defined by S&M. It’s funny. Arguably Caren also uses Templation but in her case it’s Kuudere not Tsundere.

    Yeah very much so, early Nasu very much feels like a very different person from Modern Nasu. I feel like Notes vs Tsuki no Sango is another interesting comparison considering they’re very different takes on “Future Worlds” that Nasu has shown.

    I mean Manaka and Ryougi are absolutely both within early Nasu. Manaka is from his high school days and Ryougi is from like 1996.

    my personal opinion is that Prototype passed through too many filters to count as "Nasu`s highschool ideas" anymore

    dont think we even know for sure if Manaka is from Skipper or completely new to Prototype

    At the very least, Character Material (2006) makes no mention of Manaka.

    Hm, very true. I guess I’ve always just considered Prototype stuff as particularly early in Nasu’s head but that’s not completely accurate.

    Isn't Manaka the main antagonist of Prototype? She's really not in CM?

    Nope, just Ayaka and Saver Saber. There are a few other character concepts mentioned but she's not one of them so I doubt he had come up with her yet.
