Welcome to the 2nd Platonic Harem blog! I dropped the weekly part since I can't do it every week due to school and wiki projects.

Synopsis

For those who haven't tried Fate Stay Night:

It is about a young teenage boy named Shirou whose dream is to become a hero of justice like his late father, Emiya Kiritsugu. When he stumbles upon a fight between two servants and accidentally summons Saber who protects, his life is forever changed. Shirou finds himself fighting against other mages and their servants who are heroes of the past in the Holy Grail War. Whoever wins the Holy Grail has the right to make wish on this holy chalice.

Fate Stay Night is based on the visual novel game that has three routes: Fate, Unlimited Bladeworks, and Heavens Feel. In each route, Shirou is the main character while the female lead changes.

  • Fate: Shirou and Saber
  • UBW: Shirou and Rin Tohsaka
  • Heavens Feel: Shirou and Sakura Matou

What is a Platonic Harem?

I use Platonic to refer to harems where you have a group of girls or guys that can form a relationship with the opposite sex. However, unlike traditional harems, there could only be one relationship at a time. Platonic means every day.

Characters

Beware of spoilers!

Shirou Emiya
Shirou Emiya
Shirou Emiya is our male lead with a strong sense of justice. In Fate Stay Night, he is known for his quote: People die when they're killed. He's not a gifted mage since he knows reinforce and trace on. His partner is Saber for all routes. From a weak mage, Shirou quickly becomes strong and capable of holding himself up.

In all of the routes of Fate Stay Night visual novel, he can form a relationship with one girl at a time. Since Fate Stay Night visual novel is an eroge, the relationship becomes very intimate and deep for each girl.
Saber
Saber
Saber is a beautiful knight who is the female version of King Arthur, and she is the Saber class which is known for their high offensive and balance stats. Like Shirou, she follows a code of honor. In the Fate route and Fate Stay Night anime, Shirou and Saber are partners whose relationship blossoms into love. Due to censorship, their intimacy is concealed. To see the truth, check out the Implied Sex Scene.
Rin Tohsaka
Rin Tohsaka
She's an bright, gifted mage whose partner is Archer. Rin helps Shirou learn how to use magic and the rules of the Holy Grail, and she becomes his ally. In the Unlimited Blade Works movie and route of the same name, Rin and Shirou can share a special relationship. Though, Shirou has to break through Rin's Tsundere barrier to get to know Rin up close and personal. Their romance becomes more interwined when Shirou learns who he is and Rin bonds with both Archer and Shirou.
Sakura Matou
Sakura Matou
Sakura is Shirou's shy classmate who has a crush on Shirou. Her role varies in the 3 Fate Routes. Sakura has the potential to become a great mage, but other masters try to use her for their personal gains. There is no anime or manga series that is exclusive to the Heavens Feel route, the route for Shirou and Sakura's romantic relationship.
Illyasviel von Einzbern is mage from the north who looks sweet and innocent, but she is quite sadistic. For some odd reason, she has a thing for Shirou. There is no route or anime for Illyasviel's relationship with Shirou. One can only imagine a loli-esque relationship.

Conclusion

Fate Stay Night Female Leads
Fate Stay Night Female Leads

Fate Stay Night is a strong example of platonic harem since Shirou can only form one relationship at a time. Each route in the visual novel is dedicated to that. Only two relationships have appeared in the anime world, Fate Stay Night and Unlimited Blade Works movie. Both of them do a great job in revealing the inner works of Shirou's relationships.

I enjoyed the Fate Stay Night series and its prequel, Fate Zero. It's a series that focuses on magic and the Holy Grail, but underneath it lies some good romance stories.

Question: Which relationship you guys and gals loved the most?

I haven't play the visual novel, so I don't know much about Sakura Matou's relationship with Shirou. If I make a mistake, please feel free to correct me.
