fate and manga are inseparable. it's the gospel truth. it's hard to built a plot on coincidences alone.

hmm... I was wondering why "Linali" isn't spelled "Rinari" I mean, does it necessarily have to be translated as "L" sound, or is it just a presumption everyone makes ?

According to the Japanese Wiki, the Japs spell it as Leenalee. And Chinese don't pronounce R generally. In Mandarin, there are so little words with pronounced R, eg "er" (2)

I explained why its Linali earlier...
the chinese Ri, which is pronounced with the tongue touching the palate, doesn't sound the same as the japanese Ri, which is more of a "ree" sound and involves movement of the tongue
since she's chinese, its Linali, cos thats the closest thing to the pronounciation in the manga
but it is odd how she has 4 syllables in her name and she's chinese though
