Bond 2 江戸時代後期の浮世絵師。


NA Localization: An ukiyo-e painter and printmaker during the late Edo Period.
In addition to working under the name "Katsushika Hokusai," he produced artwork under thirty different pen names, including "Gakyou Roujin" ("painting-obsessed old man") and "Souri."
One of Japan's most prominent artists, his works were also a great influence on many painters and musicians like Vincent van Gogh and Claude Debussy.
Known to be a rapid painter, Hokusai created over 30,000 pieces of art in his life, including ukiyo-e prints, paintings, sketches, and shunga erotic artwork.
In his later years, he lived with his daughter and assistant Katsushika Oui.
Some of his representative works are "Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji", "Hokusai Manga", "One Hundred Ghost Tales", and "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife". He moved 93 times during his lifetime, was careless with money, and is considered to have been very...eccentric.
It was said that whenever he went out, he could be heard mumbling a mysterious chant...

Fan Translation: An ukiyoe artist from the second half of the Edo period.
In addition to "Katsushika Hokusai", he had over 30 other pen names like "Gakyo Rojin" and "Sori". Japan's representative painter, he had a great influence on foreign painters and musicians like Van Gogh and Debussy. Known for his terribly fast brush strokes, he left behind 30,000 works in his lifetime. The aforementioned works range from ukiyoe woodblock prints to paintings done by hand, manga and shunga.
In his later years, he was living together with his third daughter, "Katshushika Ōi" who worked as his assistant. His most important works are the woodblock print series "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji", "Hokusai Manga", the monster paintings from his "Hyakumonogatari" series, the shunga "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife" and others. He was known as an oddball who stood out with his eccentric behavior, such as changing residence 93 times during his lifetime and being really careless with money while living in extreme poverty. On the occasions when he went outside, he was constantly reciting incantations and the like.

Bond 3 『冨嶽三十六景』

ランク:A 種別:対軍宝具


NA Localization: 『Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji』
Rank: A
NP Type: Anti-Army

Fugaku Sanjuurokkei.
"The Great Wave of Kanagawa", one of Hokusai's best-known works of art, is the 21st piece in an ukiyo-e series.
By brilliantly capturing nature's movement in his godlike brush strokes, this work of art almost takes on a mysterious life of its own. All who lay eyes upon it feel the excitement and energy of the crashing waves.
Through his communication with the evil god of the Abyss, he has awoken to a talent out of this world. Making the madness his own, he created the ukiyo-e "The Twisted Wave of Kanagawa." This artwork combines the thirty-six views of "Primary Fuji" with the ten views of "Reverse Fuji," and treads further still, into a realm that's forbidden to any human.

Fan Translation: Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji
Rank: A
Type: Anti-Army Noble Phantasm

Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji.
Mister Hokusai's well-known great masterpiece, The Great Wave.
The 21st work of his series of ukiyoe woodblock prints, "The Great Wave off Kanagawa".
The power of his brush, ascertaining the behavior of nature and drawn out from a mental state of fanaticism, is endowed with a mysterious substance that stimulates the body and mind of the viewer. And then, the Hokusai who communicated with and awakened an evil god from the Abyss, captured that madness in a unique ukiyoe he painted. That is "The Great Wave of Kanagawa". A brush of taboo that stepped into a state of mind beyond even the 36 scenes of the "Visible Fuji" and the additional 10 scenes of the "Hidden Fuji".

Bond 4 森羅万象:A+




NA Localization: All Things in Nature: A+
A type of Discerning Eye that is focused on investigating the true essence of all things in nature through observation.

Father-Daughter Bond: A
Hokusai's bond with Oui, strengthened by their time together in life, is so powerful not even the evil god's madness can corrupt it.

Pseudonym "Iseidako": B
The Octopus out of Space. Having blended with the evil god of the Abyss, his drawing style evokes non-Euclidean geometry.

Fan Translation: All Things in Nature: A+
The observing eye that studies the spectacles of nature and sees through that essence.

Bonds of a Father and Daughter: A
The bond between the hearts of Hokusai and Ōi, who remained together even in his final years, won't be shaken even by the madness of an evil god.

Alias: Octopus from Another Planet: B
Due to a state of mind that came to be from harmonizing with an evil god of the Abyss, a non-Euclidean geometric style of painting is born.

Bond 5 型破りな性格の北斎。


NA Localization: Hokusai had a peculiar personality.
He didn't limit himself to a single drawing style, instead proactively studying other schools' techniques. However, he never allowed traditions to tie him down, instead always keeping his thoughts on the future.
For example, he learned the techniques of perspective drawing from Western art. He also blended snapshots of sudden movement with landscape painting, a technique that can be said to be the starting point of modern manga expression.
Should he manifest in modern times, free of the shogunate's harsh restrictions, he would gladly spend every waking moment challenging himself to reach new artistic heights, whether through the medium of shunga, abstract art, digital art, or even performance art.

Fan Translation: Hokusai's unconventional nature.
Although he enthusiastically studied the techniques of various painters without being fixated on a single school, he was full of progressive temperament.
Adopting the perspective of Western paintings, he can be said to be the origin of modern-day manga by employing landscape painting that presented a cut-out moment of motion.
Manifesting in this modern age and freed from the strict shogunate's pressure, Hokusai will probably learn every technique of art with glee, vigorously challenging himself. Be it shunga, abstract, digital or performance art.

April Fool えかきサーヴァント


Painter-Type Servant

He fused with an alien octopus from outer space, then possessed his own daughter to create this artist. This is the ultimate evolution of a Japanese hentai artist.

  • Katsushika Hokusai is actually the small creature next to the girl, the girl is Katsushika Hokusai's daughter, Katsushika Ōi.
    • This is the second servant to have the main Servant as a mascot, rather than an individual themselves. The first servant to have this situation is Orion.
    • Interestingly, Katsushika Ōi herself is also a famous ukiyo-e artist that followed her father's art style.
  • She shares the exact ATK values at both minimum and maximum with Abigail Williams.
  • She shares the exact HP values at both minimum and maximum with Arjuna.
  • She shares the exact HP values at minimum with Queen of Sheba.
  • The design of this servant is based on one of Hokusai's famous artwork, The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife.
  • The painting in her first buster attack and NP animation is based on Hokusai's most famous artwork, The Great Wave of Kanagawa.
  • The design of her 3rd Stage Appearance is based on Katsushika Ōi's ukiyo-e, the Nightscene in the Yoshiwara (吉原格子先之図, Yoshiwara kōshisaki no zu?), where the outerwear represents the lattice window (格子窓, kōshimado?).
  • While Hokusai's trial quest indicates that they are a Pseudo-Servant of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu, the starfish shapes in their third stage are a clear reference to another of Lovecraft's creations, the Elder Things. Interestingly, Lovecraft places the ruins of the last great city of the Elder Things in the unexplored interior of Antarctica, very near the location that the Chapter 2 Prologue of FGO places Chaldea.
  • At 6 hits, she has the highest hit count for Arts card along with Abigail Williams and Ereshkigal.
