Fate/Sausage Party 

January 22, 2016

Grand Order

I almost always have Kate at least glance over any articles I write just to get a second set of eyes on them. She is a fairly insightful lady and while our tastes usually align we are different enough that she sees some things I would ordinarily miss. When I wrote my 12 Servants That Need To Be Added to the Fate/Stay Night Universe post I also had it look it over. While Kate might not have any real insight into the Nasuverse and Type-Moon characters she is enough of an aficionado of history and mythology that any comments she has are extremely valuable. While she generally liked the list she did have one major comment. There were hardly any women among my picks.

I thought that was a fair comment and was going to write back a simple answer for that: There are so many female Servants that I wrote up mostly male Servants to even things out. There was no way for Kate to know that as she really only knows the following Servants: Saber, Gilgamesh, and … all the other ones. It seemed an open and shut case. Then I remembered an article I recently read. It said that if a room is filled with 17 percent women the men in the room think the gender balance is 50-50 and a room with 33 percent women will be seen as having more women than men. So that study made want to actually go and see what the gender balance is in the Fate universe when it comes to Servants.

As always some basic rules:

  1. I am only looking at the gender of Servants. Masters and other characters are a separate conversation that is worth having but is a greater question than what I wanted to look at here.
  2. I only used the list of fully spoiled Servants from Fate/Grand Order. There are more characters on the way but I am leaving them out for now. There are enough reveled Servants that I think they can be added to the mix.
  3. I left out some series where all the Servants have not been revealed. So I added in the original story of Fate/Strange Fake and its characters but left out the manga as there are still quite a few unrevealed Servants in that iteration.
  4. I left off the flashback Servants in Fate/Hollow Ataraxia. There are a few Servants seen from the 3rd Holy Grail War in the game but they are so inconsequential that they are not really worth thinking about.
  5. Any games like Fate/Tiger Colosseum and Fate/Unlimited Codes seemed enough like side story material they were not worth factoring in. Plus they don’t really unveil any new characters.
  6. Any character with no gender or an ambiguous gender were thrown into a separate category.

Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup: The Wrong Van Hohenheim

January 2, 2016

This Saturday post is the weekly Type-Moon news in addition to the regular APB post on Sunday. If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on the Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup drop me a line via email or Twitter.

  • London Calling
    Quite a bit was added with the London chapter of Fate/Grand Order. It is nice to see Kairi Sisigou in the game sadly he is on a very mediocre card.
  • Maid in England
    More about the London Chapter of Fate/Grand Order.
  • Jack the Stripper Stalks the Streets
    If you just want the London Chapter commercial.
  • Typewriters on the Moon
    While Nasu may continue to hint that he wants to do a third Fate/Extra game fan will have to make due with these new Fate/EXTRA MOON LOG: TYPEWRITER books.
  • Glastonbury Revisited
    So many wonderful things to buy at Comiket 89.
  • Like Father Like Son
    Of course Mordred’s introduction to Fate/Grand Order sparked a good deal of comics on Twitter. (Oddly enough most of them seem to center around Lily Saber not traditional Saber.)
  • No Mapo Tofu?
    You figure it would be nothing but Mapo Tofu to celebrate the birthday of Kirei Kotomine.
  • IMHO It is Only a Matter of Time
    I saw these pictures of Arcueid Brunestud in Fate/Grand Order going around the Internet for a while. I don’t think anyone was accidentally fooled but I do think it shows how much people really want this to be the case.

Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup: Goodnight Miyu Matsuki

November 7, 2015

This Saturday post is the weekly Type-Moon news in addition to the regular APB post on Sunday. If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on the Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup drop me a line via email or Twitter.

  • A Moment of Silence
    Miyu Matsuki, the voice actress for Hiusi, passed away at the age of 38. She will be missed.
  • A Bit of Lighter News
    Since Fate/Grand order has been doing quite well it only makes sense that off model bootleg games would appear in its wake. I am sure this is not the last of this sort of illicit homage (blatant rip off.) I am vaguely curious what the original servants for the game are since they seem to have made some of their own characters as well as putting in all the Type-Moon standards.
  • Enter Okeanos
    With the unveiling of the third chapter of Fate/Grand Order comes a new video.
  • Fou’s Revenge!
    He is tired of being used to power up your attack and HP!
  • This is Halloween
    Olga Marie Animusphere gets in on dressing up for All Saints’ Eve.
  • So Many Sakura Themed Treats
    BB and the gals get in on the Samhain festivities.
  • Cat and Fox Adventures
    2 tails down and 7 more to go.
  • Saber Consumes the Moon and all its Candy
    But this is always why you want to go trick of treating with Artoria.
