    Thanks. You made some good point in that thread as well.

    I guess that marks a clear difference between us. These characters, while not immediately relateable, are just so very interesting to me. I'm not expecting some moral or charismatic edge to these characters for me to stay entertained.

    I guess something resonates with me with the concept of these characters Kotomine and Kriitsugu. Two people who are empty in their lives that tossed themselves into all sorts of dangerous situations. Two people who essentially feel dead inside, meet in a war, but before the fighting began, one of them had found some sort of goal for himself while the other is still searching.

    To me, one of the most interesting conversations in the series happened between Gilgamesh and Kotomine as we saw the very roots of their relationship get planted.

    Still though it's not like Kiritsugu was painted as purely some heartless bastard. I think the scene he had with Illya, as well as the conversations with Maiya and Irisviel went a long way to showing just the opposite.

    Also, while you keep talking about Saber being one of your favorites in this, you should also remember that it's both her and Kiritsugu who are the main protagonists of this story, so it's not like you're liking some secondary character in the story more than the main ones, she is one of the main ones.

    Oh wow, I don't really agree with much of what you said at all.

    Coming from a F/S N game player so far the most interesting things for me to look forward to in Fate/Zero is Kotomine Kirie's development, as well as Kiritsugu.

    I get it, Urobuchi Gen weaves together a very dark world, but couldn't we have said the same thing about Kara no Kyoukai and that was Nasu?

    Urobuchi Gen isn't all about abyssal endings though, many of his works often find something poetic, something beautiful in them despite all the harsh realities. This is especially true of Saya no Uta, as well as Madoka, but also things like Phantom of the Inferno. I don't think Fate/Zero is that different either, especially considering we all know where Kiritsugu's development is heading.

    It's not just about crushing your characters, but in expressing grim realities it's also somehow finding something touching in it.

    Anyways. Yes Tokiomi/Kirie/Kiritsugu are a very cold, calculating, ruthless trio, but that is also why I find them so interesting. Different strokes for different people here I guess. I don't think Tokiomi's character is hindering anything since he hasn't been the main focus, merely an observer of what's ongoing. I'm sure when he takes more action things will get really interesting. Kotomine's character has been going rather great I feel.

    I don't know. I feel Fate/Zero barring the Rin episode that just aired has been almost picture perfect for me. I couldn't be much happier as a fate fan.

    Right off the bat, I love your new Chihaya avatar. Very nice!

    Now, as for Tokiomi and Kotomine, I agree. After Episode 1, my hope for these two was that Tokiomi would continue to push Kotomine into situations that he would steadily feel more and more conflicted over, and there'd be a personality conflict at play. Alas, Tokiomi's incredible degrees of inactivity as basically left Kotomine as a free-agent, to do whatever the hell he pleases. That does take a bit of an edge off of both characters, which by extension hurts the Kiritsugu/Kotomine feud a bit.

    As much as my Tokiomi sig was originally indeed as a simple joke, I'm increasingly seeing how Tokiomi's characterization may in fact be causing serious problems for Fate/Zero as a whole. I hope that Tokiomi starts actually doing something soon.

    Ah Merkel is a difficult topic. I'm not a fan to be honest, but could be worse.

    Yeah Silver Spoon is Arakawa's new series. It's very different. It's about a dude who attends an agriculture high school although he's not interested in the subject. It's slice of life on a farm so to speak. You can tell Arakawa grew up on a dairy farm herself XD Nothing too outstanding till now, but a nice read.

    Oh nice I'll keep an eye out for that final chapter then. What are the other series about?

    And: That Chihaya ava is adorable!

    My weekend was fun, and yours?

    Oh well youth *shrugs*. Generally it's a bad idea to send any naughty photos if you don't want them to see them in the wrong hands.

    Merkel has never been known for being popular, I guess

    Nope not yet, But I guess I'll watch Usagi Drop and Kimagure Orange Road first.

    Been following Silver Spoon and Kimi ni Todoke. Oh and Kaichou wa Maid-sama. I also recently finished the NHK manga and wrapped the collection like that. Also still getting the german release of the FMA manga, but I'm kinda far behind.

    Incidentially, Sora actually was ok before her own arc. The last story was just silly and even Haruka seemed to have lost a few IQ pts. Sora was just annoyingly clingy.

    But yea your character preferences I agree with, though I guess I didn't care for the maid that much.

    Well, after Endless Eight sold well, I decided to never underestimate the power of certain things. I won't say it. You know why, I know why, and that bum on the corner knows why.

    Wow, that is retarded.

    I'm starting to lose faith in the Japanese. I mean, they're good people and all, but they have terrible taste in anime. But I probably shouldn't generalize the entire population of Japan just because of a rotten bunch of otaku.
