    Galatine looking scifi-ish is probably due to it being a literal light saber, as its true blade is made from the light emits from the pseudo sun within the handle (hence why it could still function even after Nero destroyed the blade). Mecha Albion is weird but considering Tiamat having rocket boosters in kaiju form, I imagine all of those billion years old entities are probably scifi-looking.

    Albion's really weird because in addition to the jet engines it also has the emblem of Galahad's shield and a bunch of roman numerals on its wings. I don't get the design process there at all.

    And we can't just say "oh it's just Melusine who has the jet look" because her NP description says Albion really looked like that.

    So I searched where the hell they showed Albion while I wasn't looking and turns that little girl isn't actually Lostbelt Lancelot. Oh.

    Also what a wack design. I know I should be used to weird-ass sci-fi in monster and gods by now but I really expected something similar to Saber's dragon core.

    I have no idea what her relation to Lancelot actually is but maybe they decided to make it look like a jet because that is so (infuriantingly) iconic to Lance.

    The Fairy Knights' relation to the KotR's is
    Spoiler:
    a twist on the "fairy steals your name" folklore. They were given the Round Table's names by Morgan, which also imbued them with their powers. Fairy Gawain is actually Barghest, Fairy Tristan is actually Baobhan Sith, and Fairy Lancelot is actually a piece of Albion.

    Thanks for spoilering it, I'm actually just going to wait until NA releases the chapter.

    Nasu's only request to the artist was making the dragon look completely out of place in the fairyland setting.

    Here's my theory regarding her design choice, though it's spoilerific, so I'll hide it.

    A clock.
    First thing I noticed was from the rings in her NP.

    A clock face, but starts with II and ends with XIII.

    Then, her swords become distinct, with one is shorter than the other, representing clock hands. There're hollowed ring on each to affix them to a clock.

    Minute Hand



    Hour Hand


    The hands allusion is apparent in certain attack animation, where she combined both swords to form a dragon's jaw.


    I think it's fitting, given that Clock Tower is built atop Albion's Spirit Tomb. She can be seen as its very foundation.
    Other than that, I find it weird her FA appearance differs greatly from her other Ascensions, even the Mecha Albion.

    How do they do it?

    Her being a girl is just so strange considering their king's circumstances, it just clashes with that.

    Maybe but if there was an KoRT they could have bended, Gareth was the prime candidate. The story of them becoming a knight has them being mistaken for a servant and being bossed around by Kay who doesn't recognize her for being Gawain's sibling.

    If your talking about why she still respects Lancelot, she is just goodhearted. To her Lancelot is still the perfect knight while he is flawed, in the Nasuverse he still is of a sort. He is torn by his values but he is still a good person, just that he fucked up

    Saber's whole thing is that no one cares or questions it as long as she does her job. I don't see any problem with Gareth.

    Yugioh is certainly bloated with dragons that the Dragon Type wasn't enough and they had to make two more for them.

    Anyways, Albion having a clock motif raises an interesting question of did they build a clocktower on it because of that or was it some retroactive influence?

    What came first, the Dragon or the egg?

    So I made this thread in the translations sub-forum.

    A lot of the material in this thread is useful for people looking for translations. Sadly, the index of this thread has not been updated in over 3 years.

    Is there anyone who has a complete collection of all the translations of F/GO material profiles lying around? I was thinking of making a thread in the translations sub-forum to collect all the profiles in one place, and one that isn't a massive sprawling nightmare of a thread.

    I don't know if it's complete but https://chaldea.tmdict.com/servant/#en has at least most of the Material translations with each translator credited for the sections they did on the Servants' pages. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to link to the TL's original post.
