The Asylum is the center of all activity on The Outhouse. All the topics from the forums below are collected here, along with Asylum-only discussions about all sorts of other stuff: music, movies, video games, politics, what Outhousers had for breakfast... It's all here in one place. Join the insanity!
The story is set several centuries into the slow decline of mankind. Earth has now become the realm of "fairies" — 10-centimeter-tall (about 4-inch-tall) creatures with remarkable intelligence. The human protagonist of the story serves an important duty as the international arbitrator between the fairies and humans, and she returns to her former hometown of Kusunoki. She chose this job because she thought it was an easy job she can do, even when she is as old as her grandfather. However, she learns that her job is anything but simple when she meets the fairies.
So I had been seeing pictures and whatnot of these chicks from some anime called Panty and Stockings so I decided to give it a look to see what it was about. Everything about this show is wrong including how much I love it!!

The first part is titled "Hajimari no Monogatari" (Beginning Story), while the second part is titled "Eien no Monogatari" (Eternal Story). Producer Atsuhiro Iwakami had revealed last November that the film project will have a two-part compilation of the original television series, followed by an all-new story. The Chūnichi Shimbun paper had also revealed earlier this month that the first film will open this fall.
You can watch a part-by-part playthrough of the visual novel of Fate/Stay Night on YouTube. I watched the entire Fate route several months ago. Personally, the best part is the amusing Tiger Dojo instructional parts after you make a decision that gives you a Bad End, which is often quite easy to do. (Of course, if you don't go through all those Bad Ends/Tiger Dojos, you can't get One-Hundred Percent Completion! )
Not joining a highly dangerous war you'll probably die in gets you killed. Not taking a blow for your (much more powerful than you) Servant gets you killed. Staying away from a dangerous fight, like your Servant told you to, gets you killed.
* In fact, Taiga even cheerfully tells you that you should be as stupidly heroic as possible or you're going to die. For [the Fate route], anyway.
* It's worth noting that Shirou, the viewpoint/Player Character, has a spiritual/psychological complex which means that from his point of view, many of these things actually fit his motivations and morals. There's something to be said about playing the game in-character.
So let that be a lesson to all fictional beings AND the writers behind them: Stay/keep the characters in-character or PAY!!
