It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. My petition to get Krauser-tan into SaiMoe fell on deaf ears. My petition to get Karna into the Fate franchise was wildly successful. The comments got hijacked by Indians. I received a fawning email from Kinoko Nasu.
It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. My works are incredibly profitable. My characters all suck.
I’ve been so captivated by your post on Karna that I promise to include him in an upcoming installment of my Fate franchise. I’ll call it Fate/Apocrypha and release the first volume on December 29, 2012. The anime will have to wait a bit longer, probably until around July 2, 2017, give or take a few years.
I think I’ll turn Karna into a scrawny white guy, which is totally cool, because I turned King Arthur into a chick. Then I’ll make him a Lancer for some reason, even though he’s most famous for archery and riding. As for his rival in the Holy Grail War…how about Vlad the Impaler? Sure, they have no common lore, traits, or beliefs, but somebody has to fight Vlad. It may as well be Karna, right?
Obviously, Karna can’t win the Holy Grail War. That would be too predictable. We can’t make the show too good either; that would distract the viewers from Karna’s greatness. I think a single plus (+) tier anime would be ideal.
Actually, you know what, I suck at writing, so assuming you don’t inexplicably go blind next year, why don’t you write Fate/Apocrypha for me?
