    True... I got nothing. It's weird indeed. Sakura is the most disliked heroine. For the longest time people used the "It's because Heaven's Feel wasn't animated" excuse. Now we have the movies (and they ironically piss people off by cutting some Kirei and Illya stuff) and there are still people who dislike her. I'm not even sure it's the "used goods" meme. Personally I don't like her personality. She's too meek and her (and some of her fans') inferiority complex is annoying. Heaven's Feel is honestly the most messy route. You get people saying they hate that Shirou abandons his ideals for Sakura, that it is stupid to go from UBW where he'll follow them no matter what to HF where he drops them as soon as he's faced with a decision. But to say that Shirou is as bad as Zouken because he didn't magically solve everything for Sakura is just... Not to mention that that VN screenshot I linked can be interpreted in many different ways. I don't see it as Shirou saying he knew or even suspected something on that level, I see it as him having a "I should have known" moment (the power of hindsight).
    I've said it before, I'll say it again. Except for the real weirdoes, it's got nothing to do with disliking Sakura, or because she isn't a virgin, or whatever. FSN is all about... how do I put this, people with agency, it's all extraordinary people and extraordinary situations and everybody's running around trying to grab hold of this wish, or that miracle, or trying to achieve things, or just trying to prove themselves, to themselves.

    Saber? Physically one of the strongest people in the entire franchise, even after all the powerlevels inflation that's gone on since original Fate. She's stoic, and pleasant, and absolutely will not hesitate to kick the arse of anybody, up to and including several demigods stronger than her.

    Rin? A prodigy, a magus in secret, in charge of her own house, walks into the Holy Grail War not because she wants a wish, but, to use her own words, because there's a fight to be fought.

    Then there's Sakura, and she's kinda out of place, her route exists for Shirou to turn against what he once believed in, she's forbidden by the Almighty Plot from actually being a fighter, or a doer, or much of anything besides being the damsel, and later, the villain who's also the damsel. It isn't dislike so much as it is indifference.

    Huh. I never thought about it but the agency thing is a good observation. Maybe that's why I'm indifferent to Sakura. I certainly don't dislike her, but she's my least favorite of FSN's main cast, and maybe that's it.

    Yeah, I was talking to someone about this actually. To compare her to Kohaku. People love Kohaku, right? I personally see them as opposites. Kohaku was always planning behind the scenes to get SHIKI and Akiha killed and get Hisui hooked up with Shiki and herself to die, her perfect "revenge" so to say. Sakura on the other hand was forced into the plot by Zouken. So you could say Kohaku is active and Sakura is reactive.

    Whatever floats people's boats at the end of the day. It doesn't help that she's stuck in bed for almost half the route (kinda like Shiki in the Far Side, lol) and then ends up as Dark Sakura (who is kind of a mess). I think people would like her more if she was less reactionary. Hollow Ataraxia did a great job with her.

    Thats quite her point being a traumatized human in this world of swords and sorcery and show us the ugly side of it.

    I can totally see why she is not everyones cup of tea , and i respect it as long as they are not totally obnoxious about it

    If it's your standard good, then I prefer Nasu to write what you call bad

    I actually dislike the Sakura scenes in HA more than any. Every other one I enjoy but with hers I have to fight the urge to skip because of boredom.

    I’m lukewarm to Rider all in all as a character but her Ataraxia scenes are a lot of fun still.

    I think it feels like hey Sakura’s great guys, and senpai stuff too much ultimately.

    Different strokes for different folks. Talking specifically about HA, i think her date scenes are the cutest

    And i have something to say about why i consider her interesting. She gives this image of a poor cinnamon roll but then we found she is actually spiteful and entitled , yet call her a bad person is not fair at all because her life shaped up her . As a flawed human, she is an interesting counterpoint to Saber. Yeah, its true, she is not entitled to shiro just because her life sucked, but when the guy picks her , i totally respect the choice

    So you do like at least some of Sakura's scenes then?

    I enjoy sakura so i will not talk in menwearpink place, but even if they are paired up a lot, Rider also have some great scenes that are just about her

    What Seadragon said.

    likewise there are scenes with characters in them but I don’t consider them a scene of that character. Like Shinji and Shirou at the Matou House isn’t a Sakura scene in my book. Likewise Illya messing with a Rider and jumping off things in Shirou’s shed isn’t a Illya scene, ect.

    That's what I meant, together with him bending over to the cash that FGO makes.

    Yeah but in HA there are a bunch of "Rider" scenes where after about a minute Sakura barges in and takes 90% of the screen time. It's especially common in the first half of the game, where I think Nasu was compensating for neglecting her in F/SN by shoving her into as many scenes as possible.

    I think I remember... Two of such scenes? The "Reading in Rider room" and another one? And then there is the "let's go on a date with Sakura" that becomes just you and Rider on a date.

    My boy is back with more hot takes. Each one worse than the last.

    fucking kiritsugu decided to hunt and kill his own father just because he harmed Shirley even though in grand schemes of thing his father really did not do much.meanwhile sakura is getting raped and abused by everything in her hoursehold and shirou does nothing about it.


    green goes into significantly more details about shirou's morality in heaven's feel here


    https://www.twitch.tv/videos/557454857?t=1h23m42s
    it does not have anything to do with hindsight.he intentionally did not even try to notice it because he already knew what was going on with how obvious it was.


    https://i.imgur.com/H0BVJX3.jpg


    not only that he outright admits he is as much at fault as zouken is


    https://i.imgur.com/KfUIVBU.jpg


    I'm not even sure if he's parroting Honako Green


    not really however green does talk about it here


    https://www.twitch.tv/videos/557454857?t=1h23m42s
    I feel like he's just trolling at this point tbh.

    Its one random guy on the most famously retarded website on the internet parroting the crazy arguments of an expert mobile gamer (pfhahahaahahaha). People have taken the piss on every single aspect of Nasus body of work a million times before, one more gacha addicted clown is a couple pissdrops more in an ocean already stained yellow. Hell the amount of piss i myself have unleashed on sabers 14 year old ass you might as well start calling me R Kelly.

    It has absolutely no reason to be here, but I'm mildly impressed about how this thread evolved from something a mod was supposed to erase without a second thought to a real discussion about Sakura. Just ignore the troll reposting and continue with the thread.
