New date a live thread! I didn't see one on the catalog so here ya go. Anyone still watching this, or maybe wants to discuss about it a bit? I hope the BDs fix the animation issues that we had in S2 myself.

We appreciate your enthusiasm for the series but most of us have watched the anime and have read the LN's and we're just out of things to discuss. The BD's have been positively received so far so we hope for the most

Don't kid yourself, DAL never had any good animation, even season 1 was rife with quality and had hardly any noteworthy scenes that would be impressive by modern standards. Maybe compared to some ass budget show or a 90s anime, but its definitely not monogatari level.

There just aren't any examples of 'good animation' in DAL.

I can't really agree on that one. DAL could actually animate things from more than 3 feet away in season 1 while in season 2 Pupil sizes are wrong every time, faces are wrong, and arms, legs, breasts, everything just looks wrong. Some of the episodes toward the end of DAL II were almost unwatchable

>>
>>110430546
He said nothing about good animation, though. S1 was consistent when it came to close ups, good enough for other shots and had decent animation. S2 was constantly off model with close up shots, mostly terrible when it came to anything else, was unfinished in many parts, specially toward the end, and had terrible transitions from scene to scene that made the whole thing seem strangely less consistent than S1 in terms of flow, despite S2 having had better decisions in terms of which content to leave in and which content to skip.

So, no argument to support your point? Good, because we know Dark Tohka wanted to kill Shidou for real and inverse Origami is too broken to think rationally.

Inverse spirits are supposed to how spirits are in their world. Of course, we know nothing.

>5 years ago

Who do you think Shidou is going to meet there?
Is he going to meet loli Ai Mai Gross?
>>
>>110443119
They might show up for some comedic interjection.
It turns out that Shidou will be the reason Ai likes Kashiwada
>>
>>110443119
I would like to see that and a loli Mana, we still need an explanation for that picture.
>>
>>110443119
I hope they don't jump straight into the action. I wonder how long Shidou was sent before the fire starts.
>>
>>110443328
Depends on how much power Kurumi absorbed from Shidou to send him to the past.
>>
>>110442878
Not him but one could argue some kind of equivalence between being broken and complete despair.

>>110443328
>I hope they don't jump straight into the action.
I wonder if we'll get the perspective alternating between the past and the present. In the fortunate case we do, I guess that depends on in which time the volume starts.
>>
>>110443404
The main difference is that when you are broken you don't feel anything, at least in Origami's case is like that and complete despair is what you feel in the moment before turning into a dark spirit.
>>
>>110443404
>perspective alternating between the past and the present

I think it would be weird if we didn't get that, considering the time loops and all that. If we do get it, I can't wait to see the chaos. Practically everyone is there.

>>110443609
You pretty much nailed the worst possible scenario for Volume 11
>>Shidou getting raped by lolis
>>
>>110443497
It's true that such a distinction can be made, but the description below kinda makes me lean toward the other option:
>On the sky, a girl in black Astral Dress as if it is made of darkness is floating, holding her knees and casting her eyes downward as if she is denying everything from the outside world.
Particularly that last bit.

>>110443547
Yeah, I definitely think we will but obviously not sure about it. Looking forward to what we'll get, though.

>>110443609
I don't even know whether I'd find that good or completely redundant.
>>
>>110443609
The sun is not required, Origami attacks cause enough light to block his sight.
>>
>>110443701
That description shows Origami is clearly broken and the next scene where Shidou tries to kiss her but she doesn't recognize him implies she can't feel anything.
>>
>>110443609
>Shidou shows up after the fire and Origami's gone
>He finds his shota self and has him go on a date with loligami
>Shidou acts as Reine would to mini Shidou
>>
>>110443860
>shota Shidou going to date with a random loli while her fake imouto is defenseless
>>
>>110443803
Wanting to "deny everything from the outside world" does imply some level of feeling, The problem is that's a description from another character's perspective so it's not something we can judge that from.
And I wonder about the next scene. Why did the floating thing stop, for instance?

>>
>>110444146
Why? Origami is done with time travel and Shidou doesn't even know he is in the past.
>>
>>110444196
Oh my delusional anon, if you only knew what's to come.

PLOT HOLES THE SIZE OF THE FIRST SPACEQUAKE
>>
>>110444146
>Will everyone here be surprised when we get a S;G

Yes. Because if there were timelines the whole thing wouldn't make any sense.
>>
>>110444252
Tachibana can't use time travel for everything but seeing how we still have Kurumi and the first spirit unsealed I can't think of another way to change them.
>>
>>110444146
If we do, rather than simply surprised, I'll be really annoyed by it. It'd be a really cheap way out in these circumstances, specially because, unlike in S;G, this is something that shaped a character's life throughout a long period of time. Other than that, it'd also need to be really well explained since what the current time travel mechanics seem to be have nothing to do with alternate timelines.

>>110444252
Hey there again. You could be a little more hopeful, you know?

>>110444333
Repeating this but once Cake said Tachibana had stated there'd be more time travel in DAL but he never presented a source so I can't take that as a confirmation.
>>
>>110444362
>more time travel in DAL
So Phantom can change the future right?
>>
>>110444450
No. There is no need for all the bullshit Phantom is doing if she has the power to change the future.
>>
>>110444450
Looks like yes
>>
>>110444450
That's honestly a little strange a thing to say since the present directly affects the future anyway.
I do think the 11th bullet may allow one to see or even interact with the future. No way to really connect that with Phantom right now, though.
>>
>>110444450
The past Phantom didn't recognize Origami, so no.
>>
>>110444362
>believing the korean subhuman trash

There will definitely be more time travel, that much is obvious without needing confirmation
>>
>>110444529
>>110444571
I'm pretty sure she can't do it, but if she had the power to do it I'd say it's probably something stupid.
>I can only wish for an event to change in the future. Hopefully it works out!
>Also after that, I'm left with all these crystals!
>>
>>110444642
I don't, hence having asked for a source at the time.
And yes, I do think there will be more time travel but that has nothing to do with whether or not the author has already stated it.
>>
>>110444362
Time travel is the only way to save Kurumi.
>>
>>110444753
Looks to me like a forceful kiss is the only way to save Kurumi.
>>
>>110444362
I'm hopeful anon, that we will get to discuss how retarded the time travel gets.
>>
>>110444753
If things are as they seem to be and time travel doesn't change the timeline, how do you propose it's used to save Kurumi?
>>
>>110444785
You can't force a seal. The spirit must love you first, remember?

>>
>>110444809
The author can use resets or any other bullshit that involves time control.

>>110444831
But Kurumi has some kind of feelings for Shidou. She just values her "doomed to fail" plan even more.
>>
>>110444809
>time travel doesn't change the timeline
Not yet

Why do you people make assumptions?
>>

Did you read the story? If it could change timelines, why did Origami's parents die in the first place?
>>
>>110445007
>if things are as they seem to be
>if
>seem to be
Reading comprehension much?
And yes, all is pointing to that right now, let's not have that discussion again.
>>
>>110445049
Because we are in that timeline at the moment?

Who are we to say that in Vol 13 Shidou isn't going to fuck something up and end in an alternate timeline where Kurumi was the first spirit Shidou and saved and Tohka is now the retard EDGY killer?
>>
>>110444970
but it's not strong enough to seal her and she still needs a good reason to obtain her redemption. It would be a disappointment if the author just forgets about the 10.000+ people that she has killed.
>>
>gurumi don't kill de first sbirit
>but sheedu, i must gill
>gurumi i can help u
>no
>yes, i have cute harem to help fers sbitr, no nedd to gill

And thus Kurumi joins the Harem in order to pursue her goal with the help of others.

LN writing at it's finest, screencap if you feel like it.
>>
>>110445152
I'm just imagining a situation where Kurumi breaks down after finding out her plan fails and she killed so many people. Then Shidou kisses her in all the confusion and reminds her she's not alone or some nonsense like that.
>>
>>110445132
What? How can Kurumi be the first spirit be the first spirit if she needs to kill Shidou first?

Only the VN can deliver.

Are you dumb?

All I'm saying is, there may as well be a timeline where Shidou met Kurumi before she went insane and saved her, but missed his chance with Tohka and now Tohka is the one in that timeline with 10k kills and accel edgyness
>>
>>110445315
The sealin is one thing but what about the reason? How could Kurumi forgive herself for the pointless killing?
>>
>>110445132
No you idiot.

There was no reason for Origami to kill her parents to begin with. It's a cycle:
>Origami goes back and kills parents
>Loligami wants revenge
>Loligami becomes hate-filled Origami
>Origami goes back and kills parents
But unlike a timeline based story, there's no trigger. It's very likely this is a stable timeloop. The possibility of timelines is still there, but Tachibana better do a good job convincing me.
>>
>>110445412
For what purpose though? Tohka doesn't have time control powers, turning into a mass murderer doesnt make any sense.
>>
>>110445460
Tachibana doesn't need to approval of a neckbeard on /a/ to do his shit.

>>110445492
>for what purpose
Different timeline, if Tohka pops up in the human world and is attacked by AST always, she said herself she would break down and probably start killing them. Shidou saved her before this happened. This is just an example, for christ sake

but making a new timeline where Tohka is different is dumb. Shidou wants to save all the spirit if he sees this new Tohka he would want to save her and we would need a new arc for this Tohka. I know it was an example but is still dumb.

>>110445664
Reemption is not just about sealing a spirit and give her a normal life. They have to learn and pay for their mistakes.
>>
>>110445552
Well that would have to be awfully early cause based on volume 10 info Kurumi has been around doing her thing even since 5 years ago.
>>
>>110445132
Who are we to say that has any more possibility of happening than there being a single stable timeline? We only know one means of time travel right now, and that's Yud Bet. If that brings someone to the same timeline without creating branches, then that's what we can, for now, admit that it does since we have bases to think that. Anything else can happen? Yes, anything at all. There doesn't mean we have grounds to think they will, not to mention the author would have to be careful so he doesn't end up with >>110444252
>>
>>110445791
He's already using the predestined paradox which is dumb because we don't know when this loop started and can't be changed.
>>
>>110445759
Read "path to redemption"
A single kiss won't do it obviously, but maybe from then on, she'll understand and work for the better. Of course, there are other ways for that "path to redemption." Of all the girls, she by far needs it the most.
>>
>>110445841
If anything, it's the predestination paradox in itself that's dumb and not the way it was used, but that's not for me to qualify.

>Kurumi can travel in time
>New spirit can travel through space

What if when this new spirit shows up, she fucks with Shidou by sending him to alternate realities?

Would be fun and no one would have a problem with time travel bullshit.
>>
i want tsunako to sit on my face
>>
>>110445905
I dind't mean that. Redemption is what Kurumi needs but she needs a good reason for all the terrible shit she has done. Unlike the other girls Kurumi has killed 10.000+ people, the author needs to fix this shit first.
>>
>>110445682
Shidou would just try and get back to his own timeline
>>
>>110446082
Where Kurumi is still an insane girl.
>>
>>110446030
Phantom controlling the timeline would be too much. If that was the case, why would she be trying to grant her wish in such a roundabout way in the first place?
>>
>>110446077
Agreed. I want to see Kurumi in despair over what she's done.

>>110446044
But traveling through space isn't as broken as time. Not matter what space you're in, you can still alter time.
>>
>>110445979
That's what I meant.
>>
>>110446077
I don't know if the author is going to fix that. Take a look at origami. She just slaughtered her own parents. After devoting her life to avenging their death. And she is most certainly going to be saved next volume. And will live with the fact that blood is on her hands. She killed innocent people
>>
>>110446157
It was a joke. I'm sure Phantom's not all powerful.
>>
>>110446178
>But traveling through space isn't as broken as time.
>implying traveling to a different reality where shit's different isn't broken as fuck
>>
>>110446266
Origami's case is different. It was an accident and Shidou only needs to shows her a need reason to live for whereas Kurumi is killing people at will for her plan. She didn't kill some assholes or a family, they are 10.000+ people killed in cold blood.
>>
>>110446305
Sorry about that, I took it as a serious, if somewhat crazy, attempt at speculah. My bad.

>>110446266
I honestly don't think that's such a bad thing as long as Origami doesn't get over everything instantly. Kurumi's case is quite a bit different, though.
>>
>>110446384
Kurumi is probably hinging on the fact that once she kills the first spirit in the past everything is going to change and those 10k people will have never been killed by her.
>>
>>110446384
Man. Killing someone is killing someone. You don't get over it just because it's an accident. You killed those people. and again it hurts even more that those are people she loved and that she's given up her whole life to avenge them only to be the one to kill them. You can mess with numbers all you want but killing is still killing. If you've killed 1 or 1,000,000.
>>
>>110446433
Exactly which is even worse and would cause a bigger impact on her. Shidou needs to fix that first otherwise all those deaths would haunt her forever.
>>
>>110446392
Origami's sealing is probably going to be one of the most interesting ones.

>Inversed and can't be sealed directly
>5 year difference in events
>>
>>110446627
Kurumi will die giving Mana her time back
>>
>>110446637
I think she has to come to her senses first to be honest. She can't be sealed at the moment. and unlike Tohka her inverse seems to not have any sense of reason. She's just mindbroken. Good chance she could be back to normal for sealing
>>
>>110446547
You need to remember Origami has two reasons that keep her alive, her parents and Shidou. With her parents gone Origami only has Shidou left and he wants to save her. He's the only person in the world who can give Origami a happy life also killing a random dude is not the same as killing a family.
>>
>>110446637
Definitely hoping that's the case. The wait for volume 11 is being terrible.

>>110446732
Not sure she'd be back to normal. I surely do think there needs to be something that'll make her responsive, since she can't be sealed as is.
>>
>people thinking Origami will only get 1 kiss

You guys should be aware that Normal Spirit powers and Inverse Spirit powers are 2 entities.

If you seal Inverse Origami, you'd still have to seal Spirit Origami after.

Unless Shidou and Origami have a makeout session or something.
>>
>>110446832
The sealing doesn't work like that. Shidou kisses the girl and ALL the powers are sealed leaving the girl naked.
>>
>>110446796
I don't think Shidou has ever taken any remote sense of priority over her parents. When she was done killing spirits she was just going to kill herself. and it's always been more important. Examples joining DEM on an assumption
>>
>>110446832
>Normal Spirit powers and Inverse Spirit powers are 2 entities
What makes you say that? Nothing suggests that. With Tohka, she just unlocked her powers AND inversed. Then in Volume 10, she unlocks her powers again while stopping the inversion.
>>
>>110446925
Tohka went inverse, Dark powers in her.

Shidou still had her spirit powers and thus was able to summon and use sandalphon
>>
>>110446266
>Origami will certainly be saved
Says who? You guys are so sure she's going to be saved and everything will be happy just like always. Don't be so sure. I'll tell you that right now
>>
>>110446974
It's a LN

This is fucking Disney Tier stuff we're talking about
>>
>>110446940
I think he can always use it. In the volume 10 summary when Tohka has her full powers back this is mentioned
>shidou choked. In that instant, he thought up of many possibilities to block the attack. Summon <Sandalphon> and shoot down those "feathers"?
>>
>>110446940
O-ok. Not sure how that works, but you have a point.

They have may to turn Origami back to normal and then seal her or something, because being mindbroken doesn't help.
>>
>>110447051
It'd make no sense for him to be able to use it, though, since it's mentioned the power flows back.
He didn't try so we can't be sure.
>>
>>110446892
>Her future dream-----was only towards killing that Spirit.

>Few years passed since then. Origami knocked on the AST door by her aunt’s referral, and she became a Wizard after confirming that she had compatibility with the Realizer.

>Origami’s training when she became an AST member became even harsher.

>The world was filled with irrationality and no one would try to oppose it. Her limits could not achieve her goals no matter how hard she tried. In order to live through that cruel world, she could only continue being strongly conscious about the things she should do and her own meaning of life.

>But even so-----Even that Origami had moments when she can feel at ease.

>Yes. It was the young boy she met at that time.

>Thinking back, the emotion she had might be more like reliance compared to deep affections.

>Having lost both her parents, Origami was barely able to maintain her sanity thanks to his existence approaching her.

>That’s why-----he became an underlying cause, and even though she got chased out from the AST because of him, she had not once harbored any hatred towards him.
Her revenge has always been her first priority but Shidou is the only ray of light on her life. The point of this entire arc is to show how can Origami be saved from this curse. Origami has lost her first reason to keep fighting but she still has Shidou. Volume 5-7 are good examples that show Origami cares about Shidou and would die for him.
>>
>>110446832
No it's like I was telling you guys. He can't kiss her while she's inverse. She will be back to normal for that. You can't kiss something mindbroken and you can't reason with that

>>110447046
I'm just warning you. Everything up to this point has gone swimmingly and shidou is always mr hero saving the day. And that's not always going to happen. Origami is already declared unsaveable in the LN. There would have to be an elaborate way to get her out of that status.

This past may be unchangeable, but Shidou already had contact with Origami in the past, as pointed out in this thread. So whatever he's doing back there is impacting the immediate future. It may even be something as simple as observing the past and learning/remembering some events.
>>
>>110447626
>Look at the setting and figure out how to get out of this
Not him but we've talked about this again and again.
Shidou has to go to the past and meet Origami (he doesn't remember meeting her before while she does so this will probably be present Shidou). Then he comes back with some information that'll allow him to get a reaction out of Origami by saying it.
Then you have >>110447164

Is what I said. He'll use his information to somehow help Origami. She may need to be reminded that there's still something to live for.

If we look at the setting I would say Origami will be sealed in volume 11. Using 3 volumes for just one girl is too much and Shidou has to seal Origami since it is part of Phantom's plan.

So Tohka is the main spirit right, and the other spirits are kind of just like sidekicks? My friend told me that this was an OK anime, more like a guilty pleasure where its bad but amusing and easy to watch, so I felt like giving it a watch, and i'm kind of autismal in that harems and slices of life with romance I like to know which girl wins before I start watching so i'm not disappointed.

No one talked about Origami having memory loss nor gaining anything back, only Shidou.
If you haven't forgotten, we still don't know why she's so obsessed with him. We only know it has to do with that situation. Whatever he said/did that made her emotionally reliant on him and made him an "underlying cause" for her, is something that might have enough impact on her if he mentions it / reenacts it in the present. From then on, if she reacts they'll have a chance of doing something and for moving on with her life Origami needs to replace her primary cause with the secondary one that is Shidou. That's all.

To me if shidou wasn't able to get to her before despite her not having any form of memory loss at all. If he somehow magically can just by reenacting or mentioning something that she already knows, It doesn't make much sense. If shidou is so important to her he should have already been able to get to her. I don't think Origami should be able to get over her killing her own parents. Not by a mile. When you've given up everything solely for that only to be the cause it's a whole different level. She hated and tried to kill innocent spirits just because she wanted revenge for something she did. She went out of her way to get power to ultimately kill all spirits including herself which ironically would have been the revenge she needed. Even if she is "saved" I don't possibly see how she will ever get over the fact that she killed her own parents. It's just not possible.

Origami knows, Shidou doesn't. Calling to mind a specific event is something that I certainly see as different, specially since she also thinks he's forgotten her from back then.
As for Origami getting over killing her parents, she might never get over it completely. Getting over it instantly would certainly be bad writing. On the other hand, don't forget she got used to living with the Spirits and was actually getting over the revenge thing without noticing, which is why she took such drastic measures to get herself back on track by actually crossing the line. Avenging her parents' death was always the thing she lived for, but it's not like she's incapable of change, even somewhat unnoticeably. She'll just have to live for Shidou from now on, as >>110448934 said. She might get over what she did eventually, but that's for later.

Tohka gets raped in volume 7 and then she goes inverse, that's why you see her in much darker purple designs.

>>110449302

>>
>>110449452
Who's joking? Date A Origami is a real thing.
>>
>>110449255
Who said it's not? It's definitely going to change her, just look at what it already did just in volume 10. But there's more than one thing that's going to change and that includes her knowledge of the wrongness of what she was doing. Yes, her mistakes include a lot of things and ultimately actual murder, as said, I don't think she's just going to instantly get over it. But I think she can find something to live for. Maybe I'm too much of an optimist or maybe I just don't want even more suffering, but I at least know what I'm saying isn't unreasonable, at the very least.

>>110449452
They're saying it to someone who has yet to watch the series but yeah, not funny.

Its finished downloading, i'm going to watch S1 now, but before I go, one more question for everyone, OK?

So i've learned that Tohka doesn't die, that she is the main spirit girl, and that she also does not get raped, seems to be the consensus, but how about this boy.

Does he do anything cool? Or is he kinda just bland/cookie-cutter harem protagonist? I'll find out soon enough but its fun to hear what people think and compare later.

>>110449504
I think it's a bit optimistic considering how much Origami has already put into it all. Only to have that happen to her and be the one who killed her parents. It's beyond cruel. One of the cruelest things I think any LN writer has ever done to one of their characters. To build up so much and have it come crashing down like that. I honestly don't know what to expect from her, Yes there is shidou. But Origami always had some sense of justice and revenge. How will she feel toward herself knowing that she has killed. I'm just not sure about it. It's going to take some time. Again. Really fucking cruel to do that

>>110449635
The plot starts in season 2(volume 5) when he is able to summon Sandalphon, volume 6 is pure trash however. Volume 7 is the best volume.

Thanks.

Time to watch, I bet it'll be fun. The character designs remind me of Hyperdimension Neptunia series for some reason.
>>
>>110449782
Because it was done by the same person who did neptunia's designs.
>>
>>110449782

How can she retain her dignity after drawing designs for stuff with fanservice and blatant otaku-pandering? Doesn't she feel bad for giving characters such ridiculous breasts and body proportions, who will no doubt get into all kinds of perverted situations? She should be ashamed.
>>
>>110449724
>Origami
>sense of justice
What? I'm pretty sure she just wants revenge and doesn't care if the spirit is innocent or not.
>>

See you next year.
>>
>>110449724
It is cruel, yes. It's absolutely cruel and yet, despite being an Origami fan, I did enjoy this volume, the irony and the suffering included. I just want it to end well and I think it's possible for it to end well, despite the fact time is certainly needed.
>>
>>110450197
At that point it's not even revenge anymore. She just wants to kill the spirits, including herself.

Funny part is, she can never completely kill spirits, because that just makes a crystal for the next one.

Naw it's a joke but in all seriousness can you guys tell me why the DAL anime sales don't reflect the LN sales?

>>
>>110452303
Because the anime doesn't have Tsunako designs and lacks fanservice.
>>
>>110452303
>no fanservice
>no blatant waifu pandering

>>
>>110452303
Simple. DxD and IS have a lot more fanservice. Who the fuck wants to read fanservice? More eye candy in IS and DxD. DAL honestly does not have that much fanservice. And it's no uncensored either. Other than butts.

Next thread we need to do a re-cap of what's NOT in the main pastebin.

DAL is definitely better than the other 2, but BD is definitely way fucking better than IS.
>>
>>110455318
Blade dance is pretty good though
>>
>>110455442
Retard.
>>
>>110455318
Agree, BD is better than IS though.

This one was already posted but for the complete set:

I can at least agree any male is better than Ichika
DAL > BD > Shit > IS

>>110455355
Still waiting for that Reine route.
>>
>>110455621
IS is fine

>>110455621

>>110455677

Fixed for Accuracy.

There is absolutely nothing redeeming about Ichika.

Don't act like Shidou isn't a fag too
>>
>>110456084
Not that guy but how is Shidou a fag? inb4 anime only.
>>
>>110456083
Google, amazon.jp, sales threads
>>
>>110456084
Shidou does something to win the girls over.

Ichika is a subpar student and the only thing in his favor is that he's absolutely surrounded by cockhungry sluts. He doesn't even try to be good

There's this image, that clearly explains Ichika's situation.
I'm at work, but maybe I'll post it in the next thread

He's a beta who gets help from his sister to date girls and then he won't even touch them

I kind of want to know how BD2 is doing...

>>110456342
If anything, he wasn't born a special snowflake either. Did main bitch's sister modify it for the hell of it?

So I was right. Next time read the novels or pay attention to the anime before posting nonsense like that.

I'm afraid I don't consider Natsuru as male. The density is too much to handle, hence the situation behind the genderbending thing.

I had a hard time resisting the urge to not type him, or any pronoun referring to Natsuru.

>>110456138
>still a virgin
He's a closet faggot

What is a Natsuru?
>>
>>110456536
So just like every MC ever.
>>
>>110456201
He only had to do something with Miku. Everyone else was easy. Kotori wanted him all along. Yoshino just wanted her puppet back. The twins wanted his dick without even knowing him. And Tohka wanted him almost immediately

The densest material known to man.

Shidou is a very good MC. Even in the watered down anime version.
>>
>>110456698
and Yoshino, and the twins, and Natsumi. Kotori has been living with Shidou for a long time and Tohka just wanted to be accepted.

Kotori's Birthday animated never ;_;

It hurts to live but at least we are getting Kurumi StarFestival.
>>
>>110456749
I consider Shidou a rather balanced harem MC.

Not overpowered, but not completely without spine
