Shockingly enough, the No Name Assassin has provided me with more topics of thought than I imagined she would, and in this latest one, I'm going to address the possiblity that she, or at least one of her abilities, takes influence from the novel The Kouga Ninja Scrolls by Futaro Yamada.
The original teaser chapter made mention of one of No Name's Noble Phantasms, called Ichor of Reverie, which is remarked as having caused several magus, actively preparing spells to stop her, to incinerate themselves instead. This left the whole thing rather ambiguous as to what it actually did, but even then, I had an inkling.
Later still however, when the first manga for Fate/strange fake was published, we got this image.
In this, we can see the magus actively…

Well, it was requested I try to make Japanese heroes, here.
Name: Issun Boshi
Personality: Playful and kind of perverted, Issun doesn't fit what would be expected of his class. Depending on his master he is likely to be either completely uncooperative or only too happy to please. Despite being of the Assassin class, he is always willing to give his enemy a fair shot as is his nature.
Appearance: Despite appearing as little more than a black speck most of the time, Issun's full appearance is rather remarkable. His hair is rough, black and short, swept away from his face by wind. He wears a simple brown shirt and black three quarter lengths. Over his upper arms are two large leaves acting as armour and on his belt is a giant sewing …Read more >
Got bored, decided to take a shot. I know the idea is too young to impliment in an actual grail war as such, but I was taken with it and went with it.
Name: Yuri Gagarin
Appearance: An short, youthful man wearing a military uniform with a great coat and peaked cap. He has short, dark hair and a bright smile. His eyes gleam brightly.
Personality: A generally bright and chipper individual, he becomes very stoic in battle, bracing himself for what is to come. He is quite modest and embarasses easily, but has a keen mind with a strong grasp of physics and mathematics.
History: A young man from Soviet Russia, Gagarin grew up on a work farm. In his youth, the Nazis occupied his home and he spent over a year living in a mud hut. Af…Read more >

Alright, time for my second Blog Post.
This time we're looking at the phantasm belonging to True Assassin, Zabaniya: Delusional Heartbeat.
This Phantasm makes use of the severed arm of the demon, Shayṭān, that has been attached in place of True Assassin's right arm and is used to inflict a fatal curse upon his enemies, forging a false heart in his palm before crushing it and mirroring the damage onto his opponent. As seen in the accompanying image, as well as being grafted to his right arm, the position of the thumb shows it to be the demon's right arm.
Meanwhile, with the appearance of Fate/Strange Fake, we're introduced to the Beautiful Assassin, a candidate for the position of Hassan who managed to learn all of the other Zabaniya technique…
