  1. The State of Heroes

    this is pretty much my main gripe with heroes atm. All the best skills are locked to 5 star or seasonal which makes building specific units a huge hassle cause like you said you have to improvise or whip out the credit card and hope by some miracle you get the fodder you want which in some instances is better than the unit you're trying to build. We really just need more ways of obtaining some of those 5 star exclusive skills.
  2. What are your hopes for Book 3

    I mean we have fallen heroes which technically fall into that category but I do see where you're coming from like maybe making a "redeemed" villains banner like taking characters from before they became evil like a young garon or something
  3. I dunno I thought it was tomorrow though no one's posted here in a couple weeks I'm kind of getting worried
  4. Agreed mostly the only reason I see one of those three being on the banner is because mostly of popularity to get the banner to sell seeing how IS tends to use alts that way and I feel that would be a good way to go about it. Also aside from Inigo(and kind of Owain) they’re pretty lackluster units and hopefully their awakening selves coming in could remedy that.
  5. Yep looks I'm the one doing this one because as @GrandeRampel has said in his fates version of the thread we did this for all the other games so it's only fair. Anyway Standard rules just make a hypothetical awakening banner with either a GHB or a TT reward though no Panne or Yarne because Laguz. Anyway here's one idea I had for a kids banner: Nah, Cynthia, Laurent, and either Severa/Inigo/Owain with maybe an Aversa GHB

  7. I'd say a nohr banner with Nyx, charlotte, and shura with a benny TT and a scarlet GHB
  8. Come on IS give us that Brigand Boss GHB! In all seriousness though I would love to see Silque, Python, and probably either Forscyth or Faye/delthea alt(gotta sell those orbs somehow) with a Fernand GHB
  9. I have actually seen these videos before though admittedly it has been some time and back then I didn't quite understand what he was trying to say. So after re watching these videos(at least the villain one cause I remember him saying he wasn't very proud of the hero one) I have a better understanding of what eyepatchwolf is trying to say and I completely agree. In actuality a lot of what he says in that video is one of the main reasons I such a massive pet peeve against people who say characters are poorly written just because they don't take the time to understand them(I.e. sasuke). Nuance is a tricky thing but I think it's all the small subtle aspects about an idea/character/narrative/etc. and how they all blend together to create something truly believable and tangible.
  10. I think I get what you mean so my original definition wasn't too far off then. it's like all the subtle things that come together in order to add to the overall theme or message of a story or character. Like using body language to convey a character's thoughts or emotions or creating a character foil as a way to explore certain aspects of a narrative's themes. Thanks for the insight @eclipse
  11. my apologies it was the first video I could think of cause I was crunch for time but here's a blogpost I found on the subject though I don't think it's quite what I was looking for.
  12. Here's one I could really only find one because of time I'll try and find more later
  13. So I watch and read a lot of analysis videos and articles in regards to anime, manga, movies, books, etc. and in them I constantly hear the term nuance thrown around everywhere throughout these videos/articles. Though what what exactly does that mean? like what makes for "nuanced" storytelling? I think I have a vague idea on what it means but I'm not entirely sure. Like I think it means subtle details within the story that meld together to create a greater whole. For example, I've been rewatching naruto recently and something I've noticed going back through it is that naruto and sasuke both have a desire to be recognized by people which adds nuance to their relationship. at least that's what I think it means.
  14. Best S-Supports that Never Existed

    OboroxLaslow or hell even OboroxOdin to me was pretty big missed opportunity. I mean it would've been interesting to see how oboro would react to them considering they're from another world and all. Another thing is that both Laslow and Odin know what it feels like to have a family member die in front of you so really it could've made for quite a heartwarming support if you ask me.
  15. Most awkward S-Support?

    honestly fates' censoring and localization is all over the place in terms of quality. I mean they removed swimsuits but then kept the entire beach DLC uncut? They "censored"(I don't know if it was censorship or just them going for a stupid meme) Beruka and Saizo's C support but keep Peri's entire character uncut? treehouse your censorship logic confuses me sometimes. On the note of Elise honestly she's just a perfect example of pandering to that little sister fetish that some japanese otaku have. I mean I've seen enough anime to become numb to the whole concept by this point but it's still really weird especially so if you actually have a younger sister like me but I digress. To be a little more on topic however, I'm just gonna echo that pretty much all of of corrin's S-supports are just really weird awkward(male corrin at least of the few female s-supports I've read they're not too bad but I've only read like three so). The reason being is that most of these supports just read like fetish pandering and completely disregards a lot of the other character's previously established depth or nuance. One of the more egregious examples being CorrinxSelena. Now if you know me you'll know Severa is probably my favorite FE character ever. I dunno it's just that she comes off as one of the more human characters of awakenings cast in how she struggles with living up to the expectations of others and dealing with emotional trainwreck that is her past. This to me all serves to really make her one of the best written tsundere characters I've seen in a while so when I heard she was coming back in fates I was ecstatic and immediately went to s-support her the first moment I got and the support to say the least was extremely disappointing. Like the entire support is just SUPER generic with Corrin being your typical clueless nice guy harem MC and Selena acting as cliche tsundere as humanly f*cking possible. And the amount of cliched tsundere-esque dialogue between them only serves to make me cringe. What I loved about Severa is that she was more than just a cliche that she was an actual person with very realistic struggles and emotions but this support just fetishizes the fact that she's a tsundere just like so many sh*tty harem anime often do without any regards to any pre-established depth or nuance the character once had. It's all just there to pander to a specific demographic and I hate it.
