I'm just going to leave this here and go watch some anime, felt like sharing this cool picture to you guys.

Oh, and I don't own this picture and I'm having a hard time finding the source of who made it.

I'm actually pretty intrigued by the pic and like it, kinda would want to see the other characters backstage too. I can imagine Shinji being shown as the nicest guy, Rider being shown complaining about camera time, and Gilgamesh being a bookworm or poet that likes being left to himself xD

I'm kinda confused why there's a separate thread for this one pic. We might as well give Gilgamesh his own thread

-sigh- I will never understand the appeal of that guy thinks he has the right to own people, has and threatens to rape again if someone meets his fancy, and is overly arrogant. With exception to chibi-one which I actually find decent because he's more toned down.

His charisma is A+. IMO he's the kind of guy you either love to hate or love to love. I can go a bit further, but I don't want to turn into an incoherent fangirl.

Plus, Nasu seems to love him too.



and another one



also, can someone post a gif of Gil from the recent Fate/Hollow Ataraxia opening? That was so freaking badass!

He's in the same vein as Makishima from Psycho Pass (someone I also don't get the appeal of.) For me there are two kings of hate-to-love and love-to-hate: 1) Eric Cartman and 2) Izaya Orihara.

And yeah I've noticed Nasu's seeming man-crush on him -sigh- partially why I'm glad someone else is handling Kaleid.

=======================================================================================================

Well for me personally at least, I find him appealing, because he's one of the few characters who's arrogance feels justified. I mean he is the king of all heroes and a demigod, and such our petty human morals don't mean jack shit to him. And of course he thinks he has the right to rape who ever meets his fancy, b/c his rule was absolute back in Babylonian history (and hell his charisma was top notch that people outright worshipped him as king). He may have been arrogant, but his rule as king back then was just (After all he did set the basis for the Code of Humarabbi for example).

So, Its kinda refreshing to see a character who's so resolute and absolute in the way he carries himself regardless of what one might think of his actions. . After all, if I was a demigod, slayer of gods, and king of all heroes, I'd be arrogant too(and can you really say with 100 percent absolute certainty that you wouldn't be either?)

So like his arrogance stems from something more concrete. Whereas other arrogant characters in animes/mangas I've seen who are simply arrogant b/c of their stature and who are all "bark, but no bite". Gilgamesh on the other hand has feats that make him the so called King of Heroes Of course, his arrogance does bite him in the ass in all the routes, but even then, he is without a doubt "The origin and protoype of all heroes" so to speak

Plus, Nasu is a general mythology dork (which is why he knows enough to write the heroic spirits and connect their mythologies to the current story ) so its no surprise he has taken a particular liking to one of the oldest (some claim to be the first) myth out there. So I wouldn't call it a man crush. Hell even then, Nasu did state in interviews and such that his favourite servant characters are Fate Zero's rider and F/SN's Rider.

His being arrogant while it does annoy me its not my main grievance with regards to him, that's the idea of raping or even owning others. I really don't care what culture or time period the character is from to me the moment rape is mentioned that character becomes immediately one that I dislike or hate. It's kinda like someone saying they find Hannibal Lecter attractive which my reaction would be: "But he eats people o.O"

I can't say 100% sure wouldn't since I go by the concept that there is nothing that is absolute, but I'd probably be more aligned with Saber or Iskandar (more towards the first.) I don't think my core personality would shift into arrogance.

Is there evidence he deserves to be arrogant? Sure. Does that change the idea that it comes across in a very douchey way? Nope. It can be justified yet still douchey.

I base the man-crush idea on the fact in every Fate-franchise series Gilgamesh will pop up at some point + in each version he ends up getting even more OP (except Kaleid which is done by a different person thus getting a more reined in version.) The idea of a rapist even being held in the category of 'hero' doesn't sit well with me. o.O wow seems Nasu and I have similar likes then since I hold both Riders in high regard (though Saber rules as my fav throughout.)

Gil is the same arrogant bastard in Kalied though o.O
If you love him in Kalied, you'll love him just as much in Hollow Ataraxia

Arrogant? Sure. Mentioning raping someone or owning people? No, especially the prior. I'd say I find him more tolerable and likable in Kaleid.
