Go To

All Around Type Moon- Ahnenebe no Nichijou is a crossover manga featuring characters from the Nasuverse's three most popular works - The Garden of Sinners, Tsukihime, and Fate/stay night - interacting with each other, much like in Carnival Phantasm. In this series, however the events mostly take place in the Ahnenerbe.

This series contains examples of following tropes:

  • Achievements in Ignorance: See Hopeless with Tech below. Rin brings several Servants into the cafe through her laptop from multiple versions of the Moon Cell by accident. She basically uses the Second Magic, the magic that made Zelretch so overpowered and omniscient, by the sheer Epic Fail of her technobane.
  • A-Cup Angst: Shiki Ryougi is less than thrilled when she ends up in the bodies of Saber and Akiha, who both have flat chests. Saber lampshades this by noting that Shiki was fairly flat to begin with.

  • Adaptational Villainy: Neco-Arc first appears as a villain trying to become Type Moon's main heroine - by removing Shiki, Arcuied, and Saber from the equation! She fails, of course.
  • Alternate Self: The Prisma Illya chapter focuses on this, but only the mainline Kaleido Ruby and the Prisma Illya version actually meet their alternates... Until the end of the chapter, where mainline Illya freaks out her counterpart by showing up unannounced. Fortunately, they apparently get along pretty well.
    Main!Illya: (Suddenly shoves the door open) I heard there's another me here! :D
    Prisma!Illya: (Completely freaked out) UWAA—?!
    Miyu: (Thinking) I knew it...
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: Saber and Red Saber do this against a swarm of Enemies from the SE.RA.PH.
  • Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: Shiki, Arcueid, and Saber, Type-Moon's leading ladies who also happen to be major asskickers. Secondary heroines Azaka, Akiha, and Rin form another one when dealing with Shinji.

  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Illya and Miyako both wish to become older so they can get closer to their big brothers - but as a teen girl, it looks even more embarrassing when Illya clings to Shirou, and when Miyako reflexively attacks Shiki, her larger size causes severe damage! Luckily, it was All Just a Dream.
  • Brainwashed: For some reason, Neco-Arc chose to brainwash Shiki Tohno to work at Ahnenerbe, keeping him stuck as Shiki Nanaya. He wakes up back to normal after getting beat up.
  • Brick Joke: In the Fate/Extra chapter, Saber meets Red Saber for the first time, closes the door, and immediately asks Sion whether she still looks like herself, making sure there hasn't suddenly been another body-swapping incident.
  • Butt-Monkey:
    • Even when he suddenly gains the ability to summon and control fairies that instantly drain energy from even the likes of Servants and thus becomes an actual threat, Shinji still doesn't get any respect. The non-Fate cast even give him the nickname of "Seaweed-kun" due to his hair.
    • Gilgamesh also gets absolutely no respect, with his appearances in his adult form mainly being him attempting to seduce someone he mistakes as Saber (first Shiki in Saber's body, and then Red Saber, who basically tells him to go jump in a lake) and attempt to strip down only to be tied up by Caren and dragged out of the shop. Child Gil, on the other hand, is a Deadpan Snarker and an Only Sane Man and thus avoids this treatment.
  • Call-Forward: A series of yonkomas featuring the Fate/Zero characters, mostly when a pre-fire Shirou stops by - he expresses an embarrassing attraction to Saber, and a supreme dislike for Kotomine.
    • There's also a chapter where Fate/Zero-era Kiritsugu shows up in the cafe, and Saber has a short chat with him. Kiritsugu immediately leaves, not knowing what the hell is going on, and bumps into Archer on the way out, who only realizes who he just ran into before Kiritsugu disappears, initially leaving him with mixed feelings, but he ends up smiling at getting to see his old man one more time in the flesh, even if it was just for a moment.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: Poor Sakura complains that Shirou, aside from attracting several "rivals" for his affections, is too dense to notice her affections (or anyone else's, really). Akiha sympathises, as she has the exact same problem with Shiki Tohno.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Archer keeps a miniature sewing set in his shirt pocket for some reason. And being, well, EMIYA, he's very good with it.
  • Didn't Think This Through: After her plan to usurp the Type Moon heroines' roles is exposed, Neco-Arc resorts to summoning an army of Necos, hoping to overwhelm the heroines through numbers. Of course, not only are the heroines each a One Woman Army on their own, they're also being backed up by their friends. Cue Curb-Stomp Battle.
  • The Dreaded: Everybody is terrified of George the manager.
  • Easy Amnesia: Neco-Arc is struck with this after her ill-fated attempt to steal everyone's series when, during her training, she's struck in the head by a meteorite. However, after a while Sion returns her to Ahnenerbe, and she regains her memories when confronted with Saber, Arcueid and Shiki and getting smashed into a wall.
  • Epic Fail: Caren tracks down an artifact to the cafe - a vase that releases laughing gas. Everyone tries to put the vase into a bag so Caren and Ciel can take it away, and everyone ends up affected by the gas. Taiga shows up, and gets closer than anyone... and then she ends up with her head stuck inside the vase. The cafe's wrecked by everyone's flailing, so when Len, the only one unaffected, seals the vase, and the manager actually shows up, everyone is forced to Work Off the Debt as waiters and maids.
    • Neco-Arc tries to repeat the same Neco summoning she used the first time she tried to attack Saber, Arcueid and Shiki... only for a note explaining no one is going to help her to flutter down the ceiling.
  • Foreshadowing: One for an important reveal in Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya 2wei - Miyu doesn't have a mainline counterpart or any counterpart that the mainline characters know of. That's because she's an alternate universe counterpart of Illya from a different universe altogether.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Magical Amber produces a button that does this. It was actually labeled "do not touch", but Arcueid idiotically pressed it anyway. At first, only Saber, Shiki and Arcueid got swapped, but then Touko, Mikiya, Rin, Archer and Akiha turned up, and the "cure" Amber promised ends up making the problem worse until Kohaku produces a second potion, which puts everyone in the right bodies... except Amber and Kohaku themselves.
  • Hopeless with Tech: Rin's inability to use technology results in Red Saber being accidentally being summoned from the Moon Cell. She also accidentally summons multiple other Moon Cell Servants (at least one, Caster, is from a different universe than Red Saber). It's noted in the same chapter that Touko doesn't have this problem.
  • Inn Between the Worlds: Ahnenerbe, of course.
  • Lethal Chef: Chika can't even make a sandwich without knocking out whoever eats it... Except Saber Alter, who absolutely loves the dish (and thus is defeated by it). By comparison, Hibiki's incredible cooking skills impress both Ciel and Kirei Kotomine.
  • Love Potion: Created by Kohaku, of course - it doesn't cause someone to fall in love, but it makes love more noticeable. However, as she tells Akiha and Hisui, it won't work between a brother and sister, or a maid and her master.
  • Man, I Feel Like a Woman: A non-gender bender example - see "Freaky Friday" Flip above. Saber ends up in the bodies of both Arcueid and Touko, and feels up both their assets soon after the change, since she's permanently underdeveloped. Funnily enough, Fate/Grand Order reveals that if her body were allowed to age properly, she'd be more stacked than both of them.
  • Million-to-One Chance: After sending Red Saber back to the Moon Cell Holy Grail War, Arcueid says she would have liked to meet her. Saber replies it's unlikely Rin will manage to pull anything in the same manner. Cue Tamamo-no-Mae, Robin Hood, Francis Drake, Lu Bu and Li Shuwen.
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: In the Fate/Zero chapter, when Taiga Fujimura spots Kariya Matou trying to hug Shiki Tohno and Akiha, she calls him a pervert and attacks him with her kendo stick.
  • Mistaken Identity: In the Fate/Zero chapter, Kariya Matou mistakes child Shiki Tohno and Akiha for Rin and Sakura.
  • Mythology Gag: George, Ahnenerbe's manager, can channel the spirits of Nrvnsqr Chaos, Kotomine Kirei and Souren Araya.
  • Nice to the Waiter: Caster still isn't. Until Neco-Arc flatters her and Kuzuki, she's not particularly happy at Ahnenerbe.
  • Oh, Crap!: Poor Rin is initially terrified by the idea of three instances of Kaleido Ruby. Considering what Ruby tends to do, well, it's hard to blame her.
  • Oh, No... Not Again!: Barely averted when Arcueid, Shiki and Saber manage to stop Magical Amber from producing a second laughing gas-spewing pot.
  • Older Than They Look: Played for laughs when Lancer makes fun of Illya trying to behave like an adult, and she complains about him treating her like a kid. She's actually eighteen, but her body ages very slowly compared to normal humans.
  • Paper Fan of Doom: Waver Velvet slaps Iskandar with one every time he slacks off when they both get jobs at Ahnenerbe.
  • Pretty Freeloaders: Saber began working at Ahnenerbe to avert this, after seeing Rider actually pay Shirou for her upkeep.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Shiki Ryougi backs out from a fight against Kaleido Edelfelt due to a combination of her own lack of interest in fighting her and the fact that she'd be forced to carve out heart-shaped Lines of Death if she ever fought.
  • She's All Grown Up: Both Illya and Miyako's "grown-up" dreams have them with bodies at least as old as Shirou and Shiki, and decently developed at least. Illya even has some resemblance to her mother, though hardly a spitting image of her, due to being conceived naturally.
  • Straight Gay: The second Hibiki and Chika chapter has Kohaku, Caren, Sakura and Child!Gil trying to help Chika with an apparent guy crush she claims she doesn't have. Turns out Chika has feelings for Hibiki, much to their surprise, though Hibiki herself is oblivious.
  • Swiss Army Appendage: Apparently Touko added a cell phone to Shiki's arm.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: invoked Kaleido Edelfelt conjures a dimension like this. The entire area is a field of flowers, Shirou can only Project flowers, Rin's jewels are turned into pieces of candy, and the Lines of Death are shaped like hearts.
  • Tempting Fate: The main universe's Kaleido Ruby attempts to pick a fight with Shiki Ryougi. Everyone who knows Shiki knows this is a terrible idea. Rin narrowly stops her just in time, and Ruby immediately regrets her mistake upon realizing what Shiki is capable of.
  • Tsundere: Caster is initially very irritated at Neco-Arc. However, when she realizes the Neco is being entirely honest about seeing her and Kuzuki as a lovely couple, she immediately pats her head and orders her most expensive cake.
  • Work Off the Debt: After wrecking the restaurant due to hijinks involving a pot that spewed out laughing gas, everyone present had to work for Ahnenerbe or face the wrath of the manager.
  • Wrestler in All of Us:
    • In chapter 1, Sakura says she received training from Luvia and knocks Rin out with a German Suplex.
    • This was a given for Luvia, but Rin deploys this against her to take her down.
