I think you can give it a try.I am not at all familiar with this series, but I assume you're asserting that it doesn't follow the typical harem tropes and issues I mentioned in my post? If that's the case, then perhaps I will need to look into it.
Yes, I think you should try them, I will not comment on the endings to screw up your experience, obviously not everything has to be good nor all have to be bad.I... somewhat see what you mean here, but at the same time, if the ending is not satisfactory then in my eyes it tends to invalidate the journey along the way. Perhaps this is just a consequence of how I am a very sequential, cause-and-effect person, but it almost feels insulting if it doesn't conclude in a proper way. And I mean a proper way; the ending doesn't necessarily have to be happy. It just has to make logical sense in the context of the storyline.
As for your other suggestions, I may look into them as again I don't have anything against the harem genre, but nothing I've experience thus far has lived up to my potentially unreasonably high standards for it.
1. I don't like how the characters are treatedI don't really see what you mean here. Even if you don't like the direction the Grand Order story has been taken, as far as I know it is its own thing. The way that the traditional Fate stories function are not that conducive, at least in my eyes, to the sort of gacha style progression that FGO has going for it, so naturally it's going to be a bit different. I don't understand what's so offensive about the direction the game's plot as taken. And anyway, funds from the game can be viewed as going towards developing other projects more in-line (in your view) with what Fate is supposed to be.
Where was the gilgamesh that we could see at zero and fate stayed overnight? this gilgamesh looks like someone else
I don't like either of the 2 protagonists, Mashu looks like the main heroine of an ordinary harem anime and the protagonist, then the same, looks like a protagonist of an ordinary harem anime in which everyone trusts him ... just for the sake of it . I do not like that they give so much prominence to Fujimaru [or whatever XD is called] when in reality it does not contribute anything to the series, damn it after seeing protagonists like Shiro or Kiritsugo or Servants as knowing that Mashu and Fujimaru make the series see ridiculous franchise.
2. I'll focus a bit on the babylonia anime, the plot has no clear direction, things are taken from the bottom of the sleeve, it's like I'm watching jojo, things are always very convenient for proytagonists. [in fate stay night you can also see a bit of this, but in grand order they are exceeded]
3. The most important thing is how it completely leaves the basic concepts that fate stay night has and that ufotable knew how to capture very well in Unlimited Blade World, zero [urobashi gen did a wonderful job with the script that transformed the franchise] and Heavens Feel, how the holy grail and the materialization of wishes are shown, everything murky in the story, the past of the characters and how all this contributes to the development of the war, the concept that they try to maintain in grand order of the heroes is very important , in fate stay night this concept was always seen through Shiro and they did it very well, since he wanted to be a hero but he was always clear that it was something impossible to achieve and save everyone, so he had no other options to choose from. your priorities and start sacrificing things. Anyway, everything that does not make a grand order ... transforms the characters into more convenient ones, develops the plot so that it fits well with what the characters want, they try to explain everything but it turns out that nothing is understood.
Damn when you see in Heavens feel the story behind the holy grail and the beginning of the war you realize how all that was flushed down the toilet in great order to be able to get a lot of characters out, typical of gasha games.
Anyway, I could be writing books just for each character, but I don't want to spoil or write all night XD so I'll leave it here. I hope you understand what I mean and forgive my poor English, I will follow all the adaptations of great order and who knows, the future ones may make me change my mind, but so far both the a-1 picture film and the Babylonian one. They were not up to the franchise.
Yes. I'm sorry I will try not to deviate too much from the subject, the truth is that I only said it to say it is not like it was to do it.This would be an excellent point of discussion but perhaps a bit out of the scope of this thread, especially since you're likely to veer into spoiler territory. I would suggest making a new thread under "Anime" and link back to your post here should you want to continue that path.
I think I did it a bit above, sorry, but I tried not to make any spoilers.
I completely agree, I think it is good to try some series that at first glance do not seem interesting, even if in the end you do not like them, they will serve as an experience to better judge future anime that you are going to see and have a more open mind with the different genres and style .So, I not only completely understand your reservations but even share them myself. Over-the-top masculinity is something that really does not appeal to me in a series, and I tend to prefer my male protagonists on the cool or laidback side (think Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop). That being said, this element of design did not ultimately bother me that much, particularly for reasons I had mentioned in my novel above.
I genuinely recommend that you give it a try one day unless there's some other major reason you think you wont enjoy it. I say this not only as a fan of the franchise but just a fan of anime in general. Several times in the past I have foregone watching a series before of one or two (or perhaps a few) elements that I previously know I did not like and thought it would affect my enjoyable of the show. Your experience can and mostly likely will be much more complicated than that. You might find you still dislike it but for other reasons or, optimistically, you're pleasantly surprised.
At the end of the day, I just want people to enjoy more shit, because there's a lot of it out there to experience, and we're often our own unreliable critics.
