Tsukihime is fantastic. It has the early 2000s edge to it, but in a genuine way. I love the way it introduces all these massive, fantastical concepts (vampires, magic, etc.), but its scope is mostly on a small group of characters and their problems.

I wish Melty Blood got an arcade release in America. I'd hang out at local barcades and drink $9 craft beer every weekend if they had Melty Blood and BlazBlue. It was a good game that they could've made a series out of.
Anonymous 12/21/19 (Sat) 01:21:05 No. 34118
It is technically a series though. Each new Melty Blood game added new content+characters. If I remember right, French-Bread wanted to make an HD version, but Nasu shot that down.

Too good for the bathroom setup? There are some blazblue machines in the US and supposedly some melty blood machines. Use this map and see if there are any near you.
Don't expect people lining up to play though. If you want to fight real people and not just train against CPUs then bring a friend.
Anonymous 12/21/19 (Sat) 04:01:22 No. 34120
Yeah, in the same way Street Fighter II is a series I guess.
According to that map there's one machine in each of San Francisco, Austin and Chicago. Maybe if I'm ever in one of those areas I'll check it out. I've played BlazBlue at an arcade before but not many people were playing it. I guess anime fighting games aren't a huge draw for the bar/cade-going crowd. Apparently there are two Arcana Heart machines too, one in Miami and one in Boise. That's kinda funny.

I'm almost done with my second read of F/HA, and all the talk about food inspired me to cook something new and add it to my menu. It turned out pretty good, but I still want to be at least 50% of the cook Shirou is.

I guess role player in this case. I just meant "list of things I cook."

I would assume a big budget means it has a fluid opening animation, good length, nice voice actors, famous artist, excellent OP and ED composers and performance, and big marketing with a superb sountrack
plus a fancy font

said although it has no voice acting (it was a deliberate choice). There's a ton of backgrounds and really nice art. The animations look pretty smooth and nice.

I know almost nothing about Kara no Kyoukai, Tsukihime, Fate or Mahoyo aside watching a couple of vids on YT a while ago but I'll be bold and say it's because of the soundtrack and the variety of backgrounds, which from what I saw those make it feel like a nice mix between a book-movie. Now add the actual text and context and boom

One thing that the good Type Moon works (aka KnK, Tsukihime, the original F/SN, Mahoyo, and a few others) have in common is a focus on urban fantasy, small scale struggles, and characters. They went wrong latter on with scifi crap and big, grandiose battles that determine the fate of some timeline/world or whatever.

Completely agree. A shame that a return to urban fantasy form is unlikely for Nasu given that servants print money.

For some dumb reason I'm watching the FGO and the writing is unbelievably bad. I having played/read the game (and never will), but I get the feeling that the anime has made Gudao an even worse character somehow. He has all these retarded lines that make everyone wet for him for no reason. It doesn't help that the sound effects literally clip either.
Anonymous 01/15/20 (Wed) 14:28:30 No. 34864
They skipped a couple of scenes that develop, however slightly, characters that don't directly revolve around Guda
Guda is the ultimate example of a Mary Sue in the most basic form, a character who actively detracts from other characters when they exist side by side.

Absolutely no psychology whatsoever. Goes in hot and straight to her finisher. Typical of current day wrestlers, it's all about moves moves moves moves. I hope the other bitch no-sold her offense and buried her moments later. If she wants to get over anywhere outside CMLL then she better learn how to structure her match and learn how to not go into business for herself. We don't need 60 minute epics full of false-finishes. Even her promo was about putting over her finisher. She has some mic skills but everything else is lacking. They should get La Parka if they want their division to look legit.

Sort of? There are "types" if that's what you are asking.
>Is it anything to do with Garden of Sinners.
Yes. Kara no Kyoukai is a series of LNs written by Kinoko Nasu that were later adapted to movies. Very good stuff actually. One of my favorite works in the nasuverse.
>Is this connected to Sailor Moon
No. And also no to everything else.

Thank you for responding civilly to, what I admit, was a rather impolite, drunken attempt to enter your thread. I may have the terminology wrong, having spent far too much time on imageboards with low standards of courtesy. I did see Kara no Kyoukai in anime form. And, if memory not anmari wrong, another one in the same world. But who's to tell? I've seen so much stuff that I'm hard pressed to tell where I first heard the name Lalouche (Oooh No). Leather fate. Would you find it amusing to explain to an outsider why Type x is so good? (Forgive me for the x, it exemplifies what I don't get about this stuff.) Did you all come to this from a harem VN?

It's been a decade since their last Visual Novel (fuck you FGO).
It's probably his real name, but it is funny that we don't even know what he looks like. He's one of the biggest forces in shaping otaku culture and there's really not much publically known about him.
I like the older Type-Moon works because they have an urban fantasy setting imposed over a background of lots of complicated detailed lore. This contrast gives the works a pretty unique atmosphere. I also like the strong character focus and their struggles.
>Did you all come to this from a harem VN?
I started with the Fate/Stay Night VN yeah and then branched out from there into other works. There's not much of value anymore within the company sadly, but I am looking forward to the Case Files sequel series at least.

What do you mean 'is all the anime like that'? If you just mean Babylonia, it can be pretty loud during fight scenes. It's probably meant to imply power, since Ishtar and Eresh and the rest are legitimate deities who are lore-wise supposed to be pretty much untouchable by normal servants who themselves are obvious supers

That kind of sound directing originates from hollywood because normalfags think clipped, loud "BOOMS" with a ton of bass are good. It's pretty fucking obnoxious and I wish this trend would die but it probably won't go away until cape movies stop making money.

"Clipped, loud booms with a ton of bass" are what large caliber cannonfire tend to sound like which I assume is the origin of the sound.

2. Muh ayys
3. fucking pseudoservants

Why is Nasu so unbelievably bad at scifi anyway?
Anonymous 04/01/20 (Wed) 05:01:52 No. 36258
I think at least part of the reason is that he keeps trying to shove it into the Fate framework along with cosmic horror, HFY, and incredible power differentials. It's pretty much a kitchen sink setting at this point which is not readily conducive to good worldbuilding; the only one I can think of that's actually pretty good is Discworld, but Discworld goes for the absurdist approach to worldbuilding anyway.
The other really obvious one, Golarion, is a fucking shitshow and only works because it's not a story but a selection of incompatible settings that barely interact with each other and have stories pretty much confined to one particular region. Nasu, though, can't keep his HFY apart from his cosmic horror and can't keep his weird 'progress is good but not if it's too much progress' philosophy away from the concept of heroic figures who are defined by making more progress in their lives than dozens of lesser men could together. He mixes the concept of heroic journeys with this idea that a hero should somehow be involved with all of humanity, and when he really can't do that he whitewashes, genderbends, pseudoservants, or does some garbage like making Attila an ayy.
So basically I don't know if he's bad at scifi per-se, but Fate is not a setting that's conducive to it. It's not even conducive to itself at this point, without tron line Ishtar.
