Do not treat this comm like your personal therapist. Threads about nonfictional suicide, self injury, rape, and abuse will be deleted. There are better resources out there for you.
Do not treat this comm like your personal Plurk or Twitter. Off-topic happens, but it should be open for discussion and not just a play-by-play of your life. No one cares.

Akihiko Sanada (Persona 3)

I was just curious what people's takes were on Akihiko, and how they'd go about roleplaying him! I've not played his particular brand of earnest knucklehead, and since he's fairly layered I want to make sure what aspects people who aren't me focus on most.

Now that FGO has an English release, I'm thinking of picking this guy up, but I'm mainly curious about what I need to keep in mind from CCC. The Type Moon Wiki actually seems pretty useful here, but I don't want to skip over something important.

hello!! a fellow andersen fan here and i'm super excited to hear that you're thinking of picking him up! in my opinion, CCC is extremely important in order to understand the complexity of his personality. if you want to write him, i highly suggest reading through a translation in order to gain a hold of his voice. there's that and the fact that his personality goes through a bit of a shift from CCC > FGO canon. idk how canon familiar you are with the fate/ verse, anon, so lmk your familiarity before i delve into deeper details!

some advice in general would be:

1. why andersen writes
it's easy to play him as antagonistic and smart-alecky, but keep in mind that his core "reason" as a servant is to tell the stories of those unfortunate. he's terrible with interpersonal relationships because he can't help "telling it as it is," so to speak. if he thinks someone is being stupid, he'll elaborate upon it. if he thinks someone is greedy/cruel/whatnot, he'll say so. andersen frequently says in CCC that he'd rather be struck dead than to hold his tongue. he speaks to critique in hopes of having the subject improve, so keep in mind that he doesn't really seek to pick fights so much as he doesn't know how to control himself.

but he has a soft spot, too, which he demonstrates frequently in both FGO and CCC. he's willing to write a little mermaid sequel for mashu when he sees how heartbroken she is in his interlude and he openly defies his master's orders to reveal his NP to hakuno in CCC solely because he "treasures his readers." again, you'll have to look into CCC to find who exactly evokes such a response from him. just keep in mind that he's generally accepting of pretty much everyone.

which leads to--

2. andersen is "lawful neutral"
which essentially means that he abides by his own code of honor. although he constantly takes the piss on kiara, he states that it's a servant's duty to go to hell and back with his master. it doesn't really mean that he's "following the law" per say -- it's more like he follows his heart and sticks to that. again: CCC expands on this a tonnnnn and it'll help you figure out how he reacts to certain situations

and also

3. study andersen's manner of speech
nasu wrote him so he has these weird artsy metaphors that're all over the place. FGO doesn't have enough examples of this since he's essentially "calmed down" in a sense, but you still wanna be able to have him tl;dr at the drop of a hat or to be pretentious when the occasion calls for it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (almost always) this is something you just gotta practice tbh and... again! CCC

so to wrap up this super long comment uhhhh i highly recommend finding a translation of CCC bc it expands on a) his worldview, b) his original canon which he has memories from, c) his awful prose.

if you have any questions feel free to PM me or whatever!

I'm considering going down this rabbit hole... With the huge convoluted mess fate/ can be sometimes, could any kind fateanons let me know which series' she shows up most in to get a better grasp of her character? (Also if you could let me know what media sources they are also I would really appreciate it!)

Re: jeanne d'arc | fate/

she's a major character in fate/apocrypha, which good for you just had an anime that started, but a good chunk of the novels have been translated, too.

I see there's also a manga, how does it measure up against the novels?


(Anonymous) 2017-07-05 04:26 pm (UTC)(link)
I can't say how accurate the manga is to Fate/Apoc, but in general if I were you I'd start with the anime. Assuming it doesn't do excessively weird shit it's probably going to be the most coherent/streamlined adaptation you can get your hands on.

Then I'd skim the novel. Assuming the Fate/Apoc anime is relatively faithful you probably don't need to read the entire novel (and the entire novel's untranslated, anyway), but Jeanne's a major character in it with chapters written from her point of view. Reading even just one of those will give you a better idea of her thought processes than any other medium.

logging in so i can link stuff easier. g'day fatenon!!

like the other anon said, jeanne's in fgo and apocrypha, and a pretty major player in both. the apoc anime is currently airing and is scheduled for 25 episodes, and utw is subbing it here. so far it's good, but it's hard to judge from only two eps.

alternatively, translations of the first four volumes (out of five) can be found here, but personally i'd advise reading the manga and skimming the first volume because it's a massive textdump. i have links to the available chapters here. it frames some scenes differently from the novels but overall it's a great adaption so far imo, and a lot easier to follow.

fate/grand order wise, you'll obviously want to play through the orleans chapter--either in your own game or just youtube a playthrough. i've already dumped all her other stuff (valentine's day gifts, interludes, etc) that the english version hasn't gotten to yet in a reference post for myself + another friend so feel free to use that.

wow that was a wall of text I'M SORRY... feel free to hmu if you have any questions!

EDIT: oh i forgot she's in fate/extella as well! she's a side character in that so there's not a lot to it, but it got an official english translation unlike most fate/ stuff so look up her side story on youtube if you're interested. she has some good banter with gilgamesh and iskandar in there too.

no prob anon, i love jannu even if she won't come home to me in fgo. fate/ is both very big and frequently Bad so anything i can do to make it easier for people is a plus.

Might be a long shot but I'm real into this dude and I was wondering what other people's takes on him might be.

Any and all tips before I nosedive into
Things would be awesome!

As an addition, I know it's in it's own separate continuity but anything beyond CW/Homecoming I could examine for more on his personality would be awesome.
