Kinoko and Takashi's Q&A

Fate/Grand Order THE MOVIE -Divine Realm of the Round Table- Part 2 Paladin;Agateram Edition

In both the original version and the movie, Bedivere and Akkun never saw each other, but if they had, what sort of situation would it be? I'm so interested in the relationship of these two (hardcore king fanatics) that I can only sleep at night.*  <Chitose>

*This is a play on words meant to sound like "I can barely sleep at night," it means you're curious but it's not actually keeping you up.

Nasu Kinoko (from here, “N”): Like how Bedivere talked about in the game version, in life he held a distrust close to disgust (it's key that it's not disgust) towards Agravain of the executive bureau. He thinks Agravain's "disregard for his surroundings" is inappropriate as an adminstrator of Camelot. On the other hand, Agravain held a discomfort close to irritation towards Bedivere. He evaluated Bedivere's strength as inadequate for "the attendant closest to the king." In other words, he "approves of him as a person, but not as a holder of his position," so if they were to meet in the Realm of the Round Table, there might no choice but to fight.

Takeuchi Takashi (from here, “T”): Isn't the Round Table too harsh?

N: Of course not. It's a very very clean Round Table.

What is the difference between Chaldea's Servant summoning and the Lion King's Round Table summoning? Does the Lion King have an alternate method?  <Man by the Water>

N: The Lion King's summoning is limited to the "Knights of the Round Table." The Enforcement Knights are summoned by the Lion King as well. They are not from her travels as King Arthur, but from bonds formed from her time wandering as Goddess Rhongomyniad. She had those who "could not become Heroic Spirits despite being heroes" participate as knights of Camelot. On the other hand, the soldiers under Gawain and Lancelot in the game version are the "former subordinates" summoned by connections to each of their respective lords. The Enforcement Knights were inhuman since they served a Divine Spirit, but that's the reason why the soldiers were human.

T: Having heard that, the designs of the Enforcement Knights look like terminal existences connected to the Lion King and Camelot which symbolizes her, don't they?

N: When Gawain withdrew from the front lines and told his knights, "if possible, cross the sea and head for your hometown," that was out of his feelings of "if I could, I'd want to show you your homeland once again" as their lord.

Wasn't Lancelot's camp ever found out by any of the Knights of the Round Table?  <Raberu>

N: The only one who knew was Tristan, the wandering cloud, who had no subordinates, and annihilated opposition all on his own whenever he unexpectedly showed up. Agravain and Gawain couldn't leave the Holy City and had no way of knowing, and the Raid Knight Mordred only charged the enemy bases, so...

T: Oh yeah, that would make Akkun livid.

N: Managing that many refugee sites on top of his duties in the Holy City and maintaining order is proof of Lancelot's versatility as a knight. Agravain wouldn't get angry over an incompetent opponent.

It seems that in order for Servants to be able to accompany on the Rayshift, it depends on their affinity with the Singularity. Was the reason Da Vinci-chan was able to come along this time because she had good affinity?  <Silver Moon Madao>

N: Her affinity wasn't quite that good, but since it was a Singularity that appeared like the pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Da Vinci came along, having a deep knowledge of that subject.

T: I get the impression that affinity with a Singularity is like an effect of the geography. Like the energy you feel returning home.

N: But the hometown you return to after 20 years... the fields have all become houses... my childhood scenery is... already...

During his long journey of 1500 years, did Bedi travel the entire world?  <Rei>

N: It's not as though it was for the entire 1500 years, but he must have gone around 'lands with legends of the Holy Sword.' Eventually he traveled everywhere he could think of, and without ever meeting her, he reached Avalon, the place King Arthur would originally return to, and he became a voiceless stone.

T: Nasu-san, you're tired too, aren't you? ...I know how you feel.

N: Don't undo the petrification the moment I've turned to stone, please.

If Bedivere and Mordred were alone together, what sort of scene would that be?  <Yuu>

N: Mordred would be grumpy to herself, and finally leave her seat. THE END! On the other hand, Bedivere left alone would keep thinking about his king.

T: That's a usual scene at the Round Table.

For Arash's handmade knife to magnificently pierce even the strong Gawain's chest, did it have some sort of special divine protection?  <Kusakaki>

N: Faith.

T: Persian soul.

N: If I had to say, I think there probably wasn't any magical sort of divine protection. It was something Arash left behind to "those who fight," so it pierced through. If it were a holy sword given by Douman as he says "Nnnnnn~! I've prepared an SSR holy sword with this leftover rock!", it would have snapped in half.

Agravain seems like a workaholic, but does he have a hobby or anything to relieve stress?  <Akkun Sukosuko Samurai>

N: There's the witchcraft he inherited from his mother... which is often assumed to be his hobby, but that's merely research he does for battle tactics, so it's still work. Agravain has no hobbies.

T: You can also say his work is his hobby. Somehow, I can relate.

N: Agravain's work is nothing but his 'duty' huh... how can Akkun live such a hard life?

What would the Knights of the Round Table of Chapter Six think if they knew that Bedivere was unable to return the Holy Sword?  <Miyami>

N: After his vision going white with rage, Gawain would put his all into calming himself down, and comment, "That is not something that can be forgiven as a knight." Lancelot would get lightheaded and let out an anguished murmur: "Well, who could blame you?" Mordred would burst out laughing, then get serious, saying in a disgusted voice, "Should I kill that cowardly bastard?" Tristan would say nothing. But if he had not received the Gift of Inversion, he would consider Bedievere's feelings, his heart would break from sorrow and I think, without exaggerating, he would be dead for real.

T: Hey, seriously, isn't the Round Table too harsh?

N: Of-course-not. The-Round-Table-is-an-art-form.
