I mean, I can't imagine why this symbol would appear over and over on OSS Crime printing with Leviantan symbols plus the 12 gears with the explicit mention of 12 capitals if it wasn't the MKL crest. It is annoying that it isn't stated outright, but I do think it's a safe assumption even if somehow retconned in the next book. Even if it's somehow wrong it won't be a hard fix.
I have an issue with redundant file making, like (@evilliousfan) making your own cha files of the SoE characters when we already have the website ones and the good scanned versions of the previously fanmade cha images (like Mikina, soldier Chartette, nun Rin, nun Clarith). Normally I wouldn't care even if it's redundant but the newer cha files aren't cropped properly/cropped awkwardly and set to a weird size in-article.
tbh I always assumed the body changing line refers to Irina changing bodies every arc (which can either include or exclude the cat thing, I just feel the line implies multiple instances and not just one change)
It's weird cause Lich was definitely a deeper Meiko in Concerto (and Eater being an even deeper Meiko). I wonder if it's supposed to reflect his Second Period self more somehow?
Also no act of comedy can triumph over "it's Ma's ghost"
Without the mention of purity I would have assumed it was a very misdirect reference to Meta (as the almost-Mem Aleph she was) and now I'm sad.
And I almost thought Blind Girl was trying to tell me that Master of the Court/Michelle was joining Grave End given the beginning. Very sad to see nothing about Amostia or Luna, though I probably had unrealistically high expectations by hoping non-Grave End characters would appear in a Grave End album.
I'm also curious if Mothy's planning on establishing a stronger connection to TTDS since Ring of Evil is just full on ripping stuff from Daughter/Servant of Evil, HER is a thing in that universe, and an actual Amostia is there
My guess is that they all have to do with alternate realities, or moving to alternate realities?
Capriccio Farce has been retconned into the not-canon-in-the-main-timeline void, Evils Theater II is travelling to other worlds, and everyone in CL 12 is moving to the Fourth Period.
I guess CL 11 doesn't count cause it's a retreading of an already established universe?
idk, ever since Survival Ma PV came out, I was personally under the impression the info towards the end was a kind of wink-wink nudge-nudge unreliable narration due to it's vagueness and limited information, and is referring to Keel being identical to Pale, the narrator being unaware they're literally clones.
so at least for me, nothing has changed. But it will hurt if it turns out Kiril cheated :c
I think them just sharing the exact same pronunciation is enough to make the connection (and if we want to get pedantic, Gammon's kanji still contains one character present in nyozegamon)
Considering it's wordplay split between two characters, treat it like the "cannibalism" pun that Banica and Muzuri share?
I personally think he's that one senator who's a Rahab inheritor, but I've also seen some theorizing that he's Yegor Asayev. I wouldn't know what a terrorist is doing behind a distinguished prince/scientist in what is probably the Royal Institute, but we'll just have to wait and see.
But I also think he looks way too much like Gammon for him to only be an ancestor. Maybe in the original Third Period, this character was a normal Loop Octopus senator (Gakupo or not) and indeed an ancestor of Lukana, but in III' his role is essentially superseded by Gammon, since Gammon has no place of his own in this time period?
I'm just now realizing this sounds a bit like the Assassin's Creed games. I don't think this particular change has an actual effect on the story either way, unlike the detail of Maria having twins instead of one fatherless child in III'. That's just my Gordian knot of thoughts about this one illustration, lol
true, @LordLykouleon, but isn't that what the personality section is for? this is a trivia point about her inspirations and references.
That sounds like a likely reference but my only issue with it is that Rindo and Rind have different pronunciations, since rind is an actual word (like a watermelon rind, which would be said like raindo) Basically I think it reads a bit misleading.
The iTunes names are an absolute mess and absolutely not a reliable source for names. Anything else, like PV examples hold much more water, though honestly, I think all of the songs' romaji names should be the same kind of romaji.
In his defense I don't think he chooses the iTunes names... they (and other Vocaloid producers' songs on there) read a lot like randomized Google translations
inb4 someone points out Bloodstained Switch was already on iTunes under a different (arguably more) correct name since it was on that V3 MAYU Library album
Price translated Love Romance and basically everything is the same except for an extra verse at the end.
Of all people, it seems to imply Seth is the narrator, however that works out.
Price describes Ly was "nouveau riche" which explicitly means someone who's only recently become rich and acts gaudy because of it. Not sure if that means Ly was only recently allowed to flaunt her money like Princess Morbucks or if her family as a whole had only recently become rich... I'll ask Price about it and what it was originally in Japanese.
Also this is probably the first time the virgin requirement to qualify for Ma is mentioned.
They definitely aren't looking at books, unless they're rather thin, almost dimensionless and perfectly square books. I think they're record album cases. Though it probably doesn't matter much, anyways.
We've already done that but we removed it since it ended up rendering a lot of articles incomplete cause we can't certainly describe 100% all the instruments, key changes, backup singers, etc.
Unless you mean song connections specifically, then I don't really know. I assume there's probably a recommended cap for how many songs are listed in that section.
