Very exciting match for the finals. Thanks Lost for taking the time to bring this series to closure. Much appreciated. :vulcan_salute:

For this final one, I have given my vote to Melt. In retrospect her Summer persona isn’t as harsh-centric as I had first found it to be, specially in light of the event’s context. More importantly, I think she achieves a good deal of character exposition (“strong because she’s beautiful” nugget of wisdom) and simultaneous story development (foreshadowing to the underlying plot) with her allotted story-time compared to Alter who, although a very relatable and interesting character, we virtually spend the entirety of summer 3 with.

With proportion accounted for I’m convinced Melt achieves more, (also, a slight design appeal for Melt though we all have our preferences). :fgo_penguinmelt:

That’s my judgment. But best of luck to both parties — y’all decide this finale.

I mean I’m gonna vote for melt but let’s be real here we all can guess who’s winning

I don’t want to be another meihousou voter but… Summer Jalter gets a lot more exposition and is a fun tsundere chuunibyou.

Melt is fine, she acts in line with her profile entries and Extra/CCC self although there is some contention about how she’s reversed her Seraph development a bit.

I don’t have Servant Melt so I don’t know if Chaldea’s Melt remembers Seraph.

I’m gonna say this upfront, I find it odd whenever people say they like SE.RA.PH Melt but not this one. Because the two are not especially different. Meltryllis, just like her mother, is a monster of contradictions.

She is, at heart, a prideful and extremely self-centered individual. Unlike her sister Passionlip, who has serious self-image issues, Melt loves everything about herself… And yet deep down she understands that people will reject her different-ness, which further reinforces her desire to put on a show. To this end, she contents herself with unilaterally smothering the object of her affection against their will. However, in the interval between CCC and SE.RA.PH she comes to realize the joy of putting her all into realizing her love, however futile. She comes to learn the freedom of making herself vulnerable to being hurt by others. This development thus turns her into a walking contradiction of sorts: She is an Alter Ego of Pleasure living for the sake of her own desires but is also willing to throw all of it away happily for the sake of the one she loves. They are not mutually exclusive, but different facets of the same individual. Melt is a character of many hats. She is a sadistic alter ego, but also a passionate artist, a responsible older sister, a rebellious daughter, a lover of dolls, and last but not least, an attentive partner.

That turned out longer than I expected, but it does turn me off when people say that this Melt is somehow an inferior version of any other Melt that exists. Greedy, sadistic Leviathan Melt simply just reflects the more cruel side to her overall duality.

…Okay, at the end of the day, I still think Jalter will win this poll just looking at their screentime in their respective events (also Summer 3 >>>> Summer 4). My wish for a mother vs. daughter showdown was dashed, but I guess this is fine too.

I expect Jalter to win. But I’m definitely pulling for Melt. All I ever really wanted was for her to make it out of the first round (since at that time she had almost no screentime) and seeing how far she could go. Now she’s taken it all the way to the finals. That’s pretty darn awesome.

And I think Melt certainly is worthy to win this one. Summer Jalter is incredibly solid across the board. But while her swimsuit is fine…I don’t think it’s beating out any of Melt’s ascensions here. Thankfully they did give Jalter a very lovely last ascension art. But I’d say Summer Melt still wins out there. Plus come on, a Leviathan (penguin). That’s a classy combination right there.

Can’t say I’m big on either figurines or drawing. But if I was leaning to one hobby or another it would probably be the figurines since I’ve at least got a couple that I’ve gathered over time. So nod to Melt on that front. Jalter definitely ran the show in her own event story-wise. Melt wasn’t taking it that far in the latest event. Although I will say she was definitely a valuable part of the story. While we can debate how valuable Hokusai herself was, Melt was hugely important in pushing her to grow more than most of her actual matches did. And I still love the ship moments there where you could console her over the loss instead of focusing on Hokusai after their match!

Both characters are great. If Jalter takes the crown again that’s pretty cool. But I think Melt can win and that it wouldn’t be unreasonable. Still a great character across the materials in FGO, awesome character design, and long term should be a great AOE arts looper. The biggest downside I have with Summer Jalter is that I just never have many excuses to use her. She’s solid, but if I want to hit things hard I’ll probably just use her avenger version.


This is her time to shine. Best of luck to Melt in these finals.
