How did Shirou become Archer?! - Forums - francinebavay.info
I knew Rin and Shirou (his younger self) have romantic chemistry, but what about Rin and her servant Archer? I always find the relationship. Archer isn't cold to Rin if you watch the anime carefully, he just has 'Kill Emiya Shirou' as his first priority. To do so, he can't let Rin help Shirou. I'ts not that Archer became Shirou it's more like Archer was one way Shirou .. And perhaps it's sure Archer formed an even closer relationship with Illya .. to help preserve the earth before it was on the path to destruction.
Saber has fought for a long time as the ruler of Britain but then turned into a woman all of a sudden and fell in love with Shirou. Shirou's consistent desire to avoid having Saber fight for him represented his love.
Nasu further added that while Rin is female, her characterization is highly different from Saber that Shirou would still fall for her. Producer Yuma Takahashi had similar opinions, believing the style of some scenes that symbolize the romance between Shirou and Sakura were needed.
These scenes were mostly included by Ufotable, as Takahashi believes people might want to watch the film another again. There have only been small changes to Shirou's physical design since its inception.
However, he felt that to be lacking, so he added more circles in his eyes. The duo focused on making Shirou with little unique physical characteristics to make it easier for the audience to project themselves onto his character on a visual level. He is a young boy who is wishing for the happiness of those around him, such as for Miyu and Illya.
When asked about his favorite scene from the movie, Sugiyama referred to the final scene due to Shirou's appealing display of characterization due to the impact Shirou's final line he had on Miyu. One of the mistranslations from the series "People die when die are killed" became popular within the fanbase.
He found this challenging as he wanted to avoid expanding the tone of Shirou. Kiritsugu's exceedingly happy self when saving him became an unforgettable memory of admiration for Shirou.
As time went on, Kiritsugu taught Shirou basic magic and allowed his adopted son to repair items. In the moments before Kiritsugu's death, he told Shirou that he failed to become an ally of justice, someone who saves as many people as possible.
Shirou promised to become one in his stead. Shrou's excessive desire to follow in his father's ideal of becoming an ally of justice becomes a way of life for him. His survivor's guilt is so severe that Ayako has stated that she has never seen Shirou smile, as he believes that he does not deserve to. He feels that, as the only survivor of the fire, it is unfair to the deceased to prioritize his own needs before those of others.
He has a distorted sense of values where he only finds self-worth from helping people without any compensation, feeling that the very act "helping people" is its own reward and sees himself as a living sword, meant to be used by others for their own benefit.
He believes it is highly unfair that some people survive and others do not. During the series' beginning, Shirou witnesses a duel between two servants, Archer and Lancer.
The latter ambushes Shirou and kills him in the process. Shortly afterwards, Rin Tohsaka, Archer's master, finds Shirou and revives him. As Lancer once again attacks the teenager, Shirou accidentally summons the servant Saber who defends him from his foe.
After forming an alliance with Rin, Shirou learns of the Fifth Holy Grail War and agrees to join the conflict in order to avoid any possible catastrophes by other servants.
Fate route[ edit ] In the Fate route, Saber is the main heroine and her true identity is King Arthur.
Shirou Emiya (Fate/kaleid - Miyu's brother)
When Shirou leaves the church after agreeing to participate in the war, Illyasviel von Einzbern ambushes them and overwhelms Saber with her servant Berserker. Despite his weakness as a mage, he rushes out to save Saber by protecting her from Berserker's strike.
Saber blames the fall of Britain on herself, so her wish is for a more suitable candidate to pull the sword Excalibur out of the stone to take her place as the king of Britain.
Her unwavering ideal serves as a juxtaposition to Shirou's ideal. Despite understanding that their ideals are unreachable, they ignore reality and continue moving on that path.

- How did Shirou become Archer?!
Shirou is able to help Saber face the reality of her ideal, as it is impossible to change the past, but Shirou still embraces his ideas to the very end in this route. When preparing for the final fight against Kirei Kotomine and Servant GilgameshShirou returns Avalon to Saber so that she can fight at Excalibur's full strength.
While Shirou and Saber win their fights, the couple separate due to the end of the war and they reunite in Avalon. Rin notices Shirou's twisted ideal of becoming an ally of justice. She criticizes his lack of self and how little value he places on his own life, as he would gladly die for his ideal. Archer, Rin's servant, is Shirou from the future who suffered greatly from accomplishing the goal of becoming an ally of justice.
As such, Archer wishes to kill Shirou in hopes of erasing himself from existence or at least erasing the ideal of being an ally of justice from Shirou's world.
Shirou is locked in an ideological conflict with Archer. Archer criticizes Shirou's ideals for simply being borrowed from his father.
Archer (Fate/stay night)
Shirou denies that he will become like Archer. Through dialogue with Archer, Shirou sees hypocrisy in his ideals. Though it contains some events from all three arcs, the anime is essentially an adaptation of the Fate storyline, and still leaves a lot of information out. A manga adaptation of Unlimited Blade Works has been produced. Do these go more in-depth?
How did the whole summoning aspect work? The Grail summons the servants for the masters.

To a large degree, the Grail has a will of it's own, and might even be considered sentient in a sense. Rin's ritual in the beginning of the series was an attempt to manipulate which servant would be given to her. How exactly does one become involved in the Holy Grail Wars? The grail chooses who participates. The visual novel makes it very clear that you cannot deny the call to participate, as your life will essentially be forfeit -- your own servant is likely to kill you and form another contract with another mage, as the servants have a desire to win the war as well.
If you own servant doesn't, another will, as killing a master to remove them from the war is easier than killing the servant. I guess this is more directed towards Shirou than anyone else. I didn't fully understand how he able to summon her. As I mentioned before, the Grail does the summoning, Shirou did nothing except be chosen. Shirou has powers that are on-par with sorcery though not explicitly referred to as such, that I can recall. I got the scabbard angle, but what that alone enough?
While it could be argued that the scabbard may have amplified Shirou's powers before he really knew how to control them, I'd argue the scabbard was nothing more than an excuse for Shirou to be suicidally stupid and live through it all.
What exactly was the relationship between Sakura and Rin?
