The story is fucking trash and shit mc
Apocrypha was set up as a 7 v 7 war between Servants, and most of the first volume seemed dedicated to setting up a huge conflict between the two sides which flipped between perspectives a lot and showed off everyone.
Then Siegfried killed himself to save some random Homunculus who gained the ability to turn into Siegfried and suddenly the plot began revolving around him and him alone, with barely any focus on the more interesting characters. This was never even hinted at in previews for the novels, which pissed people off. It's a near-universal view that Sieg ended up ruining the potential Apoc had and ended up turning it into the adventures of a generic LN protagonist that had others die to power him up and then lead to a ripoff of the Realta Nua Last Episode.>muh jeannu jannu jannu jannu
The bad writing on the romance certainly didn't help either
