New chapters of the City series and Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon!
Happy new year everyone, let us hope this one will be rich in Kawakami related blessings
(i.e. Horizon S3).
What was even the point of the Christian symbolism in OnC?
I was hyped when biblical mythology was revealed to be endemic to Low Gear, but then nothing really happened with it other than a few things having biblical names. Was the focus on churches and "Silent Night" really just there to seem cool?
At least the other Gears had real life artifacts and creatures from their mythologies. Low Gear had jack shit besides the stuff created by humans
It would have been better to have Sayama as some kind of Jesus parallell.
Kawakami goes into the history behind the writing of Tokyo and it's pretty interesting.
In middle school, he wrote some one-page short stories somewhat based on his own life with some fantastical elements thrown in.
In high school, he wrote some more as a high school version with some additional characters added in. (Including Tokyo's main girl who is based on a childhood friend of his.)
In college, he wrote a full novel based on it, gave it connections to the Kawakami-verse that he'd been coming up with separately (He was apparently coming up with Genesis TRPG rules as far back as middle school), and thus created the City Era city of Tokyo.
He submitted that to a publisher (not Dengeki), but it was rejected.
After getting published by Dengeki, he wrote the version of Tokyo we have as both a self-contained story and a sort of prequel to the unpublished full novel.
So there's an unpublished City novel that was written before even Panzerpolis? Holy shit. I wonder if he'll ever decide to try again.
>(He was apparently coming up with Genesis TRPG rules as far back as middle school)
Sometimes I wonder if he's actually just bullshitting.
What seems to be the plot of that unpublished novel is even a minor plot point in DT's backstory.
After gathering all the world's misfortune in Tokyo, the city is going to be frozen in time to seal that misfortune away, but the MC and friends apparently find out about the secret plan and try to stop it.
>tfw PC transexual
>tfw you love how Horizon makes fun of everyone reguardless and appreciate Horizon's political incorrectness
>tfw you will never get to make food for Futayo while wearing a bodysuit.
This year for sure.
Or next year, as a celebration of Kawakami's 20 years with Dengeki.
You will never get to tentacle around with Kimi.
Thin, tall and big chested fits the description of a lot of Horizon girls.
I don't think even that contract is strong enough to protect him from that. It's just divine protection, not divine invincibility.
Besides, does it even work with non-physical hits?
>1/4 of Musashi's ether supply vs 1 dragon line reactor
I really wish we could calculate the amount of that could be derived from each one in terms of real world units, but it's hard to draw a conclusion without a frame of reference.
If the average human produces 3600 ATEL an hour, isn't that an equivalent of 83Kcal an hour? I mean its a start to maybe consider.
I mean the ability to null or divert the power of the explosion from one spot, or at least buffer Toori from something like that. If he was standing right on top of it, there's no doubt that the musashi could do nothing, but a couple hundred feet out, perhaps the full quarter power of the Musashi should buff his contracts enough make it survivable.
It's mostly slice of life as the characters start high school, go through their Mountain training, join the Chancellor's Officers, and deal with some trouble connected to the Osaka game's story.
>Neshinbara get taken down exactely like in a cheap manga
Fuck my sides HAHAHA
I finished Vol 3, that was brutal
did Yoshitsune really die? What the fuck
Happy new year kawakamifags, hopefully we'll get S3 this time
Well yeah, but that comes from what we eat, something I assume GENESIS humans do to a similar extent. I think it would be reasonable to assume most GENESIS humans produce around the same heat we do from that, with the ether from the ley lines being on top of that.
Older sisters please.
MUST CORRUPT THEM ALL AND AZUMA IS NEXT.
>tfw still no Noriki waifu
Call me when Sayama gets killed, unleashes his final keikaku doori and rises again just to style on everyone and you might have a point.
Sounds exactly like something that would happen. Except then he'd also outsmart Einstein in the afterlife then defeat Death in a one-on-one duel using nothing but a pencil case.
He's not that hard to beat to be honest.
His family history is pretty much his kryptonite.
And if he was that much of a Gary Stu the Leviathan Road would hardly have to be a team effort.
I'm distraught by his hyper-competence.
>V1: goes from zero to dragon slaying in a few days
>V2: beats a master swordsman that has the strongest sword in a sword fight
>V3: fights his way out while surrounded by gun-toting maids with matrix moves
>V4: figured out truth of thunderson's will that no one else could despite having little to no info on it while planning a massive martial operation, but only after figuring out fourth gear's secret that entire worlds couldn't guess after thinking about it once
>V5: The first three brothers manage to take out the rest of the team with little effort, yet he manages to beat the fourth and strongest by himself with zero effort
Everyone else can lose or do something wrong, but Sayama always manages to come out on top and solve age-old mysteries in the span of five minutes.
To be fair, he never gets to be the one who defeats the really hard opponents by himself and some of those can be argued. Like how the reason why they defeated Fafnir Custom was the power or writing and Gram, how he doesn't really defeat Kashima or how there was an actual effort by his part in defeating the brother. He also loses against an injured Hajji in the very same volume and they only win thanks to Shinjou.
Actually, Shinjou saves Sayama quite a lot now that I think about it.
Its hard to stop being perfect when everyone else is doing it.
>tfw everyone wants Futayo
>tfw everyone ignores how adorable Fukushima is.
Teaching boys to buy the right pornos so they learn how to please you is the right way, right?
