Given the whole Enkidu thing, probably the latter.

Saber was originally designed to be male before Nasu gender switched him, to appeal more to the otaku crowd.

There was nothing hard about making him male again.

I think Saber female was a wasted potential. I mean, Nasu didn't even include the chauvinism that's part of the medieval era. That would have been much more interesting.

Still, I would prefer Saber female over Saber male any day. I couldn't imagine how interesting it would be to see a stoic male Arturia over a stoic female Arturia, as typical female main characters are just squealing tsunderes, so it was nice to have someone like Saber who's cold and calculative, despite being a female. Glad to see that we have another badass heroine to add to the roster, and not just badass in the dark and gritty way like Remy of Black Lagoon or Integra Hellsing from Hellsing, but someone honorable and noble.

And also, I think that honorable part was the thing that really made Saber so compatible with Shirou. There's a real chemistry there, partly because of this similarity, which works effectively as a romance story. A female badass heroine that defends a male hero who isn't just a whiny wimp like Rock Okajima? That was something fresh for me. Despite being physically weak, Shirou obviously has the spirit and willpower to match Saber, so this match-up became really intriguing to watch.

I agree that a female Arturia is more interesting than a Male one, but a male Arturia does seem to work. You can see it by watching the OVA of Fate/Prototype, if you haven't already. It is different enough from Fate/Stay Night that you won't be spoiled.

It you are interested in exploring chauvinism and feminism in a "historic" setting I recommend trying out. Analogue: A Hate Story.

Uncover the mystery of what happened to the final generation aboard the generation ship Mugunghwa by reading through its dead crew's logs, with the help of a spunky AI sidekick!

Two pursuable characters. Five endings. A dark visual novel that further extends the non-linear style of Digital: A Love Story in a mystery featuring transhumanism, traditional marriage, loneliness, and cosplay.

Welcome to the future.
The community of the Mugunghwa is based on the Korean Joseon Dynasty.

Damn, that looks like a fun VN to try out. Thanks for the recommendation!

Whew! Now, I'm back from my Asia trip, here's the final act of Best Friend Arc's illustration! Man, I wonder what next arc Sakurai Hikaru will be working on? I hope the next one will be about Rider's Master, (Isemi, I think that's his name) and how he got this "chimerization" experiment from the previous war.
