Yay.. I am new to the Fate series.I heard it many years ago but just started watching in the Fall 2014. Even though I have watched all the Shiki movies and read the Tsukihime manga, I still am awe with the Nasuverse. I am a fan now.

Seeing the number of replies and posts in the Fate series, I am amazed how dedicated and active the fans are. I still remember what happened to a certain intellectual ANN reviewer (starts with a B), who get a large flack from the fandom on his review of the first season of UBW.

So, are you a proud Fate fan? What do you think of other Fate fans? Do you want to convert others for the awesomeness of Fate?

Hell yes, Of being a Type-moon fan ofcourse. Although ffs Takeuchi needs a new waifu

It's also important to note that the internet is full of douchebags, and some of them like fate. Fandoms are not hive-minds.

i wouldn't go so far as to say i'm just a "fate fan" i say i'm a Type-Moon fan which entails more than just fate. Yes i would say i'm a proud fan i really enjoyed the fanbase. it's just that sometimes people can get a bit much and it hurts the overall fun. Some fans can simply just be too close minded. or others seem to take the smallest shit and take it waaay too far.

I'm proud of being a Fate fan.

Some Fate fans are too salty and butthurt although most are okay.

Yes. The TM fandom has some of the most dedicated fans I've ever seen in any fandom before.

Of course there are bad and stupid people in every fanbase, but it's more than balanced out by the smart individuals having intellectual discussions, and some of the funniest people I've seen debating the silliest subjects, and having a blast about it.

It's been a pleasure for me.

How I wish we could unseat Gintama, so Fate would be the top airing show of the season.

Not really. Love the franchise, but the fanbase isn't that good (not saying there aren't good people here though)


Let's face it, if we have nothing better to do than engage in this circlejerk, there's no way we're good people.

Of course, it wasn't a official thing but it was made by the k00l kids. i lied saying i liked yugioh, then i told them the truth. i was later raped by a 2nd grader.

Proud of liking it? Well yeah, it's good. Proud of the fanbase itself? It's mostly a problem with MAL I feel, reddit for example has been cool.

This. I enjoy the franchise but idk why I should be proud about it.

What do you think of other Fate fans?
They're fine. Some are a little too childish though.

Do you want to convert others for the awesomeness of Fate?
No

This. I know lots of TM Fans IRL, it's just something about MAL that brings out the worst in people. If only MAL posts had some kind of point system like other forum websites.

As much as I love the series, the fanbase sucks. It's perhaps even worse than Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu's

Hmmm.....I'm a proud lurker of fate fandom, its pretty easy since most fate fans I rather defensive, hardly have to do any work myself. Even if I feel salty about something, I just have to wait, and Fai will get angry about it for me...

Well, that was half sarcasm, Fai really does get angry about pretty much the same things I do, he's just more vocal about it.

In the end, yes, I love being part of the fate fandom, even if I don't discuss it quite as vehemently as others do.

EDIT: and before it comes up, I'm not just a fate fan, but type-moon in general, though most of my knowledge come from fate and tsukihime, still a work in progress for the others.
I'll change this as soon as I think of something clever.

I never said that. In fact, I much prefer the Shiki movies compared to FSN. FSN just made my admiration to TM, (ufotable) to become stronger.

You got your awesome fans and you got your annoying fans.

Usually you're more annoying the more obsessed you are, so I guess we might have a disproportionate number of annoying Fate fans on this site.

Still, I've met more than enough awesome people here to call myself a Type-Moon fan without regret.

I wouldn't call myself a fan after watching only Deen Night 2006 and Carnival Phantasm, but I might become one after Fate/Zero :P

.......Ow, you hurt my delicate fan pride, how can you not like Deen Night, the alternate timeline where archer secretly and offscreen beat Shirou in his childhood so bad he became brain damaged, and thus had no chance of

And Carnival phantasm is just plain funny, and I think supplements F/HA, in tone at least

This series is known for being OP in graphics and art. Freaking thousands of dollars into the art like monogatari or something. For such amazing visuals I can't help but be drawn into this vast intriguing world known as Fate. HD porn or not this is epic fucking win.

No.

- Certain parts of fandom being an unified harassment unit out to attack anyone who dares to criticize anything.
- Adaptations that tend to under-whelm and be shitty.
- Threads that derail in seconds.
- Anime onlies and VN skimmers who have absolutely wrong idea about the franchise or characters and claim it to be the truth(Ufo is not helping with this...)


Being in fate fandom is like walking through a minefield.

Carnival Phantasm was hilarious, there should be a show like that for every other serious series out there.

I personally don't care. I feel no shame for being a TM-fan, but I don't think it's a particular achievement either. Liking something doesn't really require any effort (when it's good, at least). It's just something that I enjoy.

However, I can't help but feel a little bit good about myself for being more knowledgeable about the series than pretty much anybody that I know IRL. It makes me feel like I have some unreachable chuuni skill >:D
Still, I can't really compare to most of the regular posters on here when it comes to Type Moon, so whatever.

I find the series intriguing and that's pretty much all I need. Pride has nothing to do with it.

Don't care... because I don't think I'm really part of the Fate fandom anyway :P. I just liked the VN a lot and that's pretty much where it ends. Does that make you part of the fandom? Well every other TM work has been good to me as well, but still. It's just not the same kind of feeling as the one I have for 07th Expansion.

Really though? On the TL progress thread (on another forum) it says "Fully translated, in TLC. Apparently found a new editor to work on it." I don't know what's up with that 'apparently' but it seems like there's some hope at least?

Oh lawd "elitist" here we go with ad hominems that mean nothing

Well I am sorry, MR Harasser, that I DARED to think that adaptation is bad.

Sadly this is freespeech so I am free to dislike and criticize this trainwreck adaptation no matter how much it rustles your jimmies.

And I know it rustles alot going by your posts. Because obviously truth hurts.

You do realize an ad hominem is only applicable if we were having a discussion on the anime right? It can't be an ad hominem if the argument I presented was that there are elitists in the fandom. There is no fallacy here.

I didn't even call you out by name, but it's apparent it hit close to home.

Free speech is applicable both ways, just as you are free to "criticize," (if that's what you call it) the adaptation, I am also free to criticize YOU and anything you say. No matter how much it rustles your jimmies.

Calling you out doesn't mean "it rustles alot," nor does it mean it's an "obvious truth," you can be completely oblivious and still be annoying.
