    You even have the father son kamehameha with Shirou and saber and rin killing Herc tho, to be, actually no I don’t feel that’s very pedantic.

    My point that it is uncommon for a Master to directly interfere with a Servant's battles still stands, I don't see what one more example changes about that.

    I don't know, strange fake seems to be all about having independent masters who can stand toe to toe with servants, and the servants are not the stars of the show, but bastions of support. Gil to me seems to occupy a more gandalf type role here (of course that means he might ressurect himself at some point), where despite his immense power, he's merely to provide guidance and advice for Tine's major choices and support her independent overcoming of challenges, whatever that final challenge ends up being. Personally i expect that endgame to be between her and faldeus, given his association to the US government.

    Looking at many pairs in SF, it would seem most masters have had interference in 'servant's' battles, and Narita has gone to lengths to show that humans might soon surpass the legends of old:
    - Sigma shall become lancer himself at some point, rather than needing watcher to fight, with watcher acting as advice.
    - Dumas is facilitating an entire army of humans, with Reeve at the helm, and even non-masters like John are standing up against and even injuring the nigh unstoppable alcides
    -Flat himself is far scarier than anything jack has to offer, with jack too acting as an advisor
    - The prelatis are effectively equals, the master-servant relationship is mostly a technicality
    - Zealot is actively trying to escape Jester, who has little fear for servants
    As the story continues, I anticipate Narita will only further show that the most powerful beings are the masters themselves. Whether or not Gil-dalf stays dead, Tine will certainly have an active and direct role to play in fights to come.

    I consider Dumas to be a different case, since supporting others is pretty much all he can do. Same goes for Watcher and Jester isn't a human. Your idea about a final confrontation with Faldeus is interesting, and I can certainly see Gilgamesh supporting her choices and not really care what happens as long as he gets to fight Enkidu at the end. That's pretty much what he wanted from the start. And while I certainly see Tine grow, I don't really see her as a combatant, certainly not in a battle between Servants.

    Sometimes what you think you want isn't what you REALLY want (EDIT: oh my god i meant gilgamesh here). I feel Gil taking a supportive role to Tine is like...5000x more interesting than him fighting Enkidu again. He's also got nothing to gain from fighting Enkidu again other than just nostalgia for him.

    Cherishing and fighting for the living is what is most important, after all.

    Like to clarify a bit, I don't care if he fights Enkidu at the end or not. To me though, that's just like fanservice. But I *do* think his motivations should change, where the "fight" can be a reward, but he can gain that resolution with Enkidu other ways (working together against an enemy).

    I know what I really want, and that is that final, all-out fight between Gilgamesh and Enkidu. I hope he both supports Tine and has that fight. I like their motivations for their fight as is, but do think it should happen as a send-off after all the other threats are dealt with. Well, different people care about different things. I don't see Gilgamesh character or motivations change much, that's what Tine is already doing.

    I like the idea of Faldeus vs Tine, but Buzzcola has got to be dealt with beforehand. John is my favorite to do so, but who knows? I also want more of Doris and Hippolyta.

    Same...

    Honestly Narita's doing a great job with his mystery. He's one of the most compelling FSF characters. I like how Flat's story started out with Jack's mystery but later shifts to his own.

    No new volume in January. That means the wait for vol 7 will be longer than a year, which makes it the second longest wait we have had overall. I really start to hate DMDP, and wish the schedule would speed up. I feel like I have seen five volumes of Mahouka, Toaru and SOA release at this point. This is starting to frustrate me a bit.

    Edit: I know I am reaching here, but maybe they want to announce a new volume around the same time the FGO movie launches in december and draws more attention to Fate.

    Looks like he hasn't even mentioned the series once on Twitter this entire year so far, so it may be on the backburner at the moment. Hopefully he plans on kicking it up a notch because this series definitely isn't ending before volume 12. And I'd expect it to go to 15-18 based on current pacing.

    It's like he saw Haruhi and decided "You know, I should do that."
