Alter Ego Raikou... but genderbent as a man instead.
Now Kintoki can have a "dad" too in his family at last.
Michizane as in Tenjin? The guy who got screwed over by Fujiwara?

Oh no, Koyanskaya is being tortured, what a cruel and inhumane monster the Emperor is for such depraved actions.
.....Do it some more.
Yup, that Michizane. The chapter's character title is "Thunder and Flash", so there's a small thread hope despite the 90% chance of the title being about Kintoki.

I have to wonder how this boss fight would have gone if Chen Gong was implemented in the game when LB 3 came out.
For me, exactly the same.
It would be a Dual Boss and Chen Gong’s NP would only be online if Red Hare was his last HP bar.
Oh, you mean fighting against Chen Gong, not using him.
x5 Nah, Kintoki won't have anything cool to do with this story since [insert writer here] can't want some Buddhist/Hindu stuff with him.
Oh, what happened?
Sounds like all that would've been avoided if they just used Vincent van Vogh instead of trying to be cute with some convoluted plotline.
Can you not bring that shit up again just so you can take a pot shot at it?
Well, yeah, any controversial story can be fixed by making it not tackle any of the themes it was created to tackle.
Pretty sure that you don't get to that sort of phrasing, emphasis, and implication entirely by accident.
If there's a problem, it's not in the implication, it's that people really don't want to allow for a character they like to say something offensive. Which is weird because a lot of Servants are assholes who rejoice in unacceptable opinions, even when they're not evil.

We should drop this obviously controversial subject if none of us can be adults about it.

I am kinda curious what's the worst thing your favourite (or one of your favourite) characters has done and how you feel about it.
My favourite characters include a shameless tyrant who I still want to see the nasty side of, and someone who literally eats people.
They have problems and I'm not going to deny that, but I didn't expect them to be perfect.
One of my favs is Mordred. And we all know what she did.
My sense of priorities for my faves is skewed cause we have Gil who endorses genocide and acts like a rapist sometimes but it was Cas Gil being rude to me for like two chapters in Babylonia and all his bond dialogue that I hold personally.
Edit: on a tangent, illustrated Rama Bag◊

Taking care of her father’s estate while she was busy?

On one hand, one of my faves is someone I really have no idea if they have done wrong historically and in terms of tales about them, the worst you can say is "got into a drunken fight with a dragon god".
On other hand, one of my other favourites is a potentially legit psychopath who, while loyal to their lord, would still tell them to "fuck off, I'm walking here". Also sever their arm if they are being a nuisance.
My fave is Jeanne d'Arc, my big sister who has literally never done anything wrong in her life or in-game.

Nightingale is just very quick to threaten and jump to violence. As for how I feel about it, well, the moment I first fell in love with her was when she interrupted Diarmuid’s self-introduction with a gunshot.
EDIT: I just remembered she recommended suicide to a “patient”. I know some fans treat that as an epic moment, but I personally think it was terrible thing for her to say.

You know, one thing I like about this LB is how despite the whole Confucianism and anti-poetry thing, a good chunk of the Servants involved wrote poems or had things written in their name.
Lanling's NP is named after the song Prince of Lanling in Battle.
Xiang Yu's NP name and one of his NP voicelines come from the Song of Gaixia/Hegemon's Lament. At one point in the story he flat out recites the rest of the poem.
This is even more apparent with Qin Liangyu, as her NP is based on the poems the Chongzhen Emperor wrote in her name for her deeds in protecting Beijing. However, since in this LB the poems were never written, she never uses her NP whenever you fight her as an enemy throughout LB3note When you break her first bar, she gets the NP's effects but her charge attack is always her Extra attack.

Huh, that's a pretty interesting contrast
