As of the time of this writing, the novel series has yet to be translated completely (by fans. no official release), so until then, instead of writing respect threads, I'll just collect the feats from each completed volume.
Eva01 Like, nibba, Apoc kinda have some cool scenes and all. But without them it's pretty much mediocre at best. And the animu didn't even get them right. Like, i was so salty that i got into a fight because one of my friend was recommending Apoc to my cousin and i just happened to hear it
FabGlass I only watched the first few episodes, never finished it. I only read the first volume after, and was disappointed by how much they left out. Kairi and Mordred's conversations, Gordes and Siegfried's sour relationship, the insight into Fiore's personality and her interactions with Chiron [[in the anime she's just your run-of-the-mill poor crippled cinnamon roll who's too pure for this world. in the novel, she's roughly the same, but there's a darker tinge to her psyche, and I don't mean "SHEZ ZECRETLY EVILUZ GUYZ" or neutrality, but something more interesting]], the allusion to what exactly happened to the other Masters of the Red faction, Ruler's stay with the priestess, the truth behind Spartacus' nature, etc.
And just as worse is how much they changed, and not simply left out. That gripping final act in the first volume was done FAAAR better in the novel than in the anime, not to mention Ruler's addition to the scene was total BS. Astolfo and Sieg have like a pseudo father-son relationship rather than the damn fujobaiting rampant in the anime, among other things.
TL;DR just me ranting about what we could have had. I think I now understand what all those people who were complaining about DEEN's adaptation of F/SN felt like.
Eva01 Biggest offender to me is still that Atalanta and Achilles scene.
This. I could forgive most other things. But not that scene.
On another note, this is a good thread. As already mentioned there are quite a lot of things either changed, skimmed over, or left out entirely from the anime. Some I could see being done to save time, since the anime was only scheduled for a 25 episode run. Others however just seemed unnecessary. For example the scenario they changed up completely when Siegfried died and gave his heart to Sieg. It’s so different from the novel and clearly just altered to cause added tension, which wasn’t even necessary to be honest.

Old Man Dream: Update with Three Callaberos. Only about halfway through it at the moment. Because it's a package film with a series of animated shorts, been taking my time getting through it this past week. Never got around to seeing it last night since I got swamped...
