>What was he going to ask her? Just as she reached the divide between a desire to leave and a desire to stay, her mind focused on the half-dragon.
>“Do you have a little brother or a little sister!?”
>Masazumi saw Narumi’s mobile shell fall over as if its knees had given out.
>…Oh, that was a nice reaction. Was that so incomprehensible that even the mobile shell fell over?
The courtship begins. Weekend thread.
Fucking finally I was thinking Js06 was dead because we didn't get a thread for like 2 weeks.
I know he's translating that shitty new volume of Index, what a fucking boring piece of shit
But they aren't villains. One of the things that Kawakami pulls off well is creating reasonable characters that just happen to be on the opposing side.
So Urquiaga is going to Date, I assume since I never read js06's summaries. Who would make sense to send to Sviet Rus and Mogami besides whoever they actually end up sending.
I have great hopes for Osaka given how similar it seems to Horizon, even though it's just mysteries upon mysteries thus far. I just hope the first volume isn't as boring as Hong Kong A.
You don't get what I mean. Js06 translates fast, well and updates regularly. And yet you are complaining about him translating Index because of a mere two weeks or less without updates
Going to put this on a pair of custom headphones. The first set of engraved aluminium covers was free anyway and I though it looked nice enough to use, yet subtle enough to not appear like a total weeb.
>I just hope the first volume isn't as boring as Hong Kong A.
I wouldn't call them boring, but City's Part A volumes are mostly setup with the plot only really kicking in right at the end.
Finally getting a good breadth into OnC, and while I like Sayama, I don't like him as much as an MC, since I feel that he does things too easily sometimes..
>surrounded by eight gun-toting maids
>suddenly becomes fucking neo
>nothing personnel, doll
In Noriki's case is even his catchphrase.
>“There’s no need to say it if you understand.”
It was mentioned in one of the boob charts from the anime. There are tons of information that isn't in the novel in the Encylopedia and the anime booklets.
Like what the P.A. in P.A. Oda means.
It has really only gotten started introducing characters, but it has a certain feel to it that makes it seem similar to Horizon. Maybe it's just the chancellor's officers and combat mikos though.
>you will never be so influential your fetishes reverberate through the eons and influence the fashion of people thousands of years into the future
Why even live?
We have DT to thank for Horizon's Mice and sign frames. And elf girls, I guess.
Haven't gotten around to it yet.
In the first episode of S2, as Musashi successfully escapes Tres Espana and completely ruins Gin's day, it starts raining on her. The rain is caused by the condemsed vapour the Musashi leaves behind with its gravitational acceleration.
Yes. She even has a canon chibi form. (Of course, so does every DT character.)
Have someone full res. of this??
If you want a series that is completed then start with Owari.
If you're more interested in Horizon from the anime then it is best to start at the beginning of Horizon to get more info, or pick up at vol 3.
If you want to read Kawakami's works in order then start with CITY.
Owari is fully translated, Horizon's translation is at the fourth arc and the same goes for City Series.
You can start with any of them because even if they are in the same universe they are standalone. If only, some stuff in City and Owari relate to stuff in Horizon so it could help to get parts of the setting better, but you can go the order you want.
>body suit fetish
>regretting the anime
Does anyone remember around which volume Satoyasu changed their style? I'm not talking about them improving. I remember in one volume the style they did was completely different from the last volume.
He has a thing for cute blonde girls in general.
Of course. But SF has enough references to Paris that I want to have at least translated that far before starting on it.
Yes, the main girl is originally from HK and visits home at one point.
It's definitely my favorite of the City stories.
He's from the Maldrick family, but since his older brother is the head of the family, he's probably their great uncle or something.
Either he or Kawakami can't spell Arizona either.
Question guys, is Hexennacht a novel series or a manga series? I remember originally there was a manga chapter or two and a non-manga prologue, but then the first novel came out. I'm assuming the novels will be the primary material and the manga (if it's still running) will just be an adaptation of it, but it can't hurt to have things cleared up.
I wonder if the scans were decent in the beginning, before some dipshit decided to make a compilation archive compressed to hell and back which ended up becoming the only source available.
While I agree with most of anons about reading this in the order you want, you need to keep in mid the order of the story, so I suggest you to read this in this order.
1) Forth (you can't read it and probably the only guy who read that is Js06).
2) Owari no Chronicle, this is the start of everything in Kawakami's world, read this first, also is fully translated.
3) Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon, for obvious reasons, is the following story of OnC.
4) Hexennacht - OBSTACLE
5) CITY Series, since is the end of Kawakami's world
If you read this in a different order you're going to get a mayor confusion about the buckets on information here.
To know that we need to summon Js06 but I think he's MIA right now.
Ever since the City World came to be, many different worlds have existed and been destroyed. However, it has been mostly proven what kind of world it was based on.
That world is tentatively known as the Foundation World.
As the name suggests, the Foundation World acted as the foundation of the current world and it is thought to have had a similar flow of history. The Foundation World is broadly divided into four eras:
These four eras are connected, but the Foundation World was destroyed at the end of the Genesis World.
After the Foundation World’s destruction, the world was experimentally recreated and destroyed again and again in search of a world that would not be destroyed.
This significant wandering era was a great obstacle to the world, so it is known as:
During this great obstacle era, either the world got tired of being destroyed or there was some other reason because a world made not to be destroyed was finally created.
And that is the City World that we live in.
It is known as:
Now, let us look briefly over those six worlds.
The pre-hope era.
This was the calmest era of the Foundation World. There were plenty of wars, but it was peaceful on the macro level and the only crises were on a regional scale.
It had little individuality, but it was likely an era focused on personal points of view.
It looks like it's full of classic Kawakami autism.
Thank you based Kawakami
Hopefully it'll be as long as horizon/OnC
Having read both Horizon and Onc I can say you don't need to do this. The end of OnC explains how Horizon's world could come to exist but it's like saying a physics textbook can be used to explain politics.
I have a fetish for women in suits, and she satisfies that extremely well.
Holy shit yes
Is Kawakami writing both that and Horizon at the same time or is he taking a break
Hexennacht is being serialized in a magazine before it basically gets a tank release.
Magazine is bi-monthly and there were 4 chapters needed for one book which came out 2 months after (chapter break in the magazine).
Basically, one book every 10 months.
He likes to take attention to details and thought about all of this since he was in high school.
He also never gets one hundred percent serious with what he writes and likes to have fun.
And sadly no, Kawakami stories aren't something that can be enjoyed by a mainstream audience I think. They need a bit on your part, but I think that's what it makes then so engrossing to some people too.
Yeah, I quite agree. Even with what he writes, he doesn't come across as pretentious and is obviously having fun writing what he writes with the practice he got during the last 20 years. And if you get into it you can help but to feel the same.
Ujinao had apparently moved in with him a while back, but he hadn't bothered telling anyone until Vol. 8.
You joke, but Paris provides a history of automatons which says the City era origin for automatons being beautiful and female dates back to the prostitute automatons developed in Persia during (the City era's version of ) the 11th century.
The manga art is good for action and mechs but subpar in character designs.
