Who did Shirou really love most? Saber, Rin, Sakura, or Illya?
>>
>>189290881
Saber in Fate route
Rin in UBW route
Sakura in HF route
Easy, right?
>>
Nasu: In the early stages of the plot, Shirou considers Saber to be his soul mate, someone with whom he shares ideals. Rin was the classmate he admired, and Sakura was someone he felt he needed to protect. Shirou is a self-sacrificing idealist who was essentially guided through life by the things he believed in, but Sakura was an exception for him. Only when dealing with Sakura was the idealistic and profound Shirou Emiya reduced to a mere human being with more mundane thoughts and emotions. As a side note, Shirou's heart was always racing when it came to Rin.
>>
>>189290881
Shirou loves saber more in fate route than how much he loves sakura in heaven's feel, and he loves sakura more in hf than how much he loves Rin in UBW. Illya is at the bottom.
>>
>>189290936
Illya in Prisma
>>
Saber according to Last Episode.
>>
>>189290881
His hardest crush was rin
The one he loved the most was sakura

>>189291269
Tohsaka's anus.

RINNY

>>189292575
I havent watched/read HF. Why does he love Sakura the most?
>>
>>189290881
SWORDS
>>
>>189290881
Saber or Sakura obviously
>>
>>189290881
My headcannon is that the route is determined by who Shirou is in love with before the story starts. In Fate he isn't in love with Rin or Sakura, so he falls in love with Saber at first sight. In UBW he was already in love with Rin before the story started, and in Heavens Feel he was already in love with Sakura.

What about Illya?
>>
>>189290881
His love for illya is so pure that nasu didnt have budget for a route
>>
>>189293025
Cause he sacrificed his ideals for her. Which almost completely demolished him.
>>
>>189293025
>Why does he love Sakura the most?
People say that because Sakura's route forces him to choose between his ideals and his love, and he chooses his love
>>
He loves Saber so much that when Archer see her after an infinite amount of years, he freezes (which almost kills him)

Also she is the only thing he remembers of his old life, that and taiga I guess.
>>
>>189290881
Taiga, we see the three girls threatened all the time but he doesnt bat an eyelash. Threaten taiga and he fucking snaps, his thoughts go hayware and is even willing to kill Rin
>>
>>189294356
Archer actually says that the only thing he will never forget is his first meeting with Saber
>>
is Archer killed Rin in past, when he was Shirou?
>>
>>189294238
she ded
>>
>>189294356
Speaking of Archer:
At the instant Rin introduced herself, Archer believed the girl who summoned him was "Tohsaka Rin" (not due to his memory being confused, but the name Tohsaka Rin being worn off).
At that moment, Archer recalled like a jolt of lightning:

"-------Rin. Ah, that's the name------"

Archer murmured this under his breath at that time. It was truly from his heart and filled with much endearment close to insanity.
>>
>>189294434
No.
>>
>>189294556
And not a single memory from Sakura maybe besides "that bitch that sometimes cooked for me"
>>
>>189294301
People who say that never read the visual novel. Sakura is the ULTIMATE VICTIM. Shirou's ideal centers around saving people so Sakura brings out his heroism at full fucking force. Not to mention she's needy and possessive while maintaining a humble exterior so Shirou feels she needs him.
>>
>>18929462
His reaction to Saber the first time almost got him killed.
He also cares a lot about Taiga to the point of asking Rin if she's okay in ubw. And he gives Ilya a "look of heavy regret" in HF.
Archer is still the kind Shirou under a heavy aloof and bruqsue facade.
>>
>>189290881
Illya, obviously. Best end related

Hard to say. He loved them equally, in my opinion, at least in the romantic sense. He is a simple dude who starts out utterly amazed that anyone is capable of loving him and he doesnt do anything in half measures.

I personally think that Saber is his soul mate though. And that doesnt even have to be in the romantic sense. They both share a chemistry; understanding and cameraderie accross all three routes, even when Saber has been turned evil in HF.

And there is something poetic and entirely satisfying about their reuinion in Last Episode. Probably something to do with the fact that literally the only person to exist who is capable of understanding and healing the other are separated by centuries and yet still manage to find eachother not once; but twice. And the second time being because they both remained entirely dedicated and true to eachother which allows them to spend the rest of eternity with eachother in their own personal heaven is something that is really compelling

tl;dr: Romantic love is equal accross the board between the heroines but platonic soulmate love is only for Saber

Honestly, this scene made me cry like a bitch back when I first read it and its probably exactly because of what you just stated.

The narratives of Shirou and Saber are parallel to each other so the trust and relationship they have is the deepest of the main girls. They are the only two people foolish enough to understand one another and their sometimes self destructive altruism.
>>
>>189295337

Saber is the soulmate,Sakura the perfect housewife and Rina is for anal sex.

>>189295420
Saber ain't shit.

What is the difference between romantic love, platonic love, and lust?
>>
>>189296827
Saber is THE shit, my man.
>>
>>189296918
>Romantic love
You love them performing the role of a mate for the sake of breeding
>Platonic love
You love them for who they are
>Lust
You just want to feel good by using them
>>
>>189296918
pooing on the floor, on their face or pooing in their mouth; that is the difference.

I only really got the impression from the UBW anime rather than the VN, but it also seemed like he could have taken Illya out in the Saber/Berserker graveyard fight to end the whole thing quickly but chose not to

This is the kind of shit is why I prefer the Prillya version
