Everyone, I apologize for having suddenly disappeared in the previous issue, which was due to a sudden health problem.
I wanted to showcase all of the encouragement I received from you all while I was resting,
which I thought of doing as a special Encouragement Question Corner,
but I ended getting stopped by everyone... so I thought I'd go back to working.
Well then, let's go on saying "Kyuukyuu!" today.
We'll continue accepting submissions from the next issue onwards!
If there is any questions of the sort "I really want to know it! Please answer it seriously!",
then please feel free to send it addressed to my corner.
At that time, please make sure to include the line "Addressed to the Technical Service Center" when you send it.
Aurica's Hymn Code is "MIR_TEIWAZ_ARTONELICO", but why does it begin with
"MIR"? Since it's similar to Mir's name, does that mean Mir's Hymn Code is
some kind of standard?
Is it the standard code for anyone who isn't an Origin?
Why is that standard based on this particular Pureblooded β-type?
I'd like for Aurica herself to answer this question, given how important Hymn Codes are.
I've been called, huh?
Since I'm actually a Third Generation, I don't have a Hymn Code.
That's all there's to it. To put it in a simpler way, the barcode I have assigned isn't registered in the supermarket's checkout system.
But Miu's (Mir's) barcode is registered. As a [¥480 Pork Cutlet], for example.
If I just so happened to have the same barcode as Miu, then, beep! I'd be recognized as a "¥480 Pork Cutlet" too.
If Ar tonelico (the Tower) was that checkout system, then "MIR_TEIWAZ_ARTONELICO" would be the price tag for the "¥480
Pork Cutlet", and "Mir" would be the "pork cutlet" itself. I wouldn't normally be registered, but by coincidence, I was
born with the same barcode as a pork cutlet, so that's what I'm recognized as.
Finally, Mir and Shurelia were registered into the POS of the checkout system during the time the supermarket's (the Tower) clerks (the engineers) were still working, so they have unique identifiers. "¥480 Pork Cutlet"! Were you able to understand this?
…私が…カツ丼… … しかも480円…
... I'm a... Pork cutlet... ... And only worth ¥480...
「謳う丘」のコーラスに出てくる「0x1011001101 [中略] exec ter ar tonelico」という台詞のことなんですが、クレア編のヒュムノスミュージカルの「EXEC_NULLASCENSION」にも「EXEC hymme 2x1/0 >> 01101010」という似ている台詞が出てきます。ゲームでもタスティエーラはプラチナへの道を開くときに同じような１と０からしかできていない数を吟詠（？）で使いますし、その色んなところで出てくる数の意味はずっと気になっていたんです（僕は数学の学生ですもの）。
Pleased to meet you, my name is Sui.
I'm a foreigner, so please fogive me if my Japanese is somewhat bad. V_V
Well then, here's a question for Lady Shurelia about Hymmnos:
In the choruses of "Singing Hill", there's a part the lyrics go "0x1011001101 (omitted) exec ter ar tonelico", and in Claire's Hymmnos Musical, there's also a similar section of lyrics in "EXEC_NULLASCENSION" that go "EXEC hymme 2x1/0 >> 01101010". And in the game, when Tastiella was opening the gate to Platina, she also used them in reciting (?) numbers, although I'm not sure if she used only 1s and 0s as in the other examples, but all the meanings of these numbers have been puzzling me since a long time ago (since I'm a mathematics student).
Are they like unique identifiers or index numbers? And by the way, as this is also related to Hymmnos, the lyrics for the opening choruses of Misha's "EXEC_PAJA" weren't written on the booklet. T_T
I really love that song, so could you please tell me what they say?
Sorry for making such a complicated and long question. I'm not completely sure I managed to get across what I wanted to ask, so please be gentle with me.
Numerals like 0x01101010 have different meanings depending on the place they each appear,
which is also defined in that precise place. That is, each of these 0 and 1 digits can be seen
as options that carry a different effect.
For example, if the digits were 0x000,
its properties would be defined by the following order: 0x"likes cats"-"likes dogs"-"likes bunnies". In that case, I would be 0x001, Misha would be 0x100 and Aurica would be 0x110. That means that each digit carries its own meaning. They can also be seen as binary digits, such as for example 0x0110 being "6" on the decimal system. I can't really give a general explanation that covers all cases, but that is the gist of it. As for the lyrics of PAJA, I'm very sorry, but we can't publish them here...
Good day, good afternoon, good evening!
Misha's Technical Service Center was really great.
But that reminds me that it'd be great if there was a Tsukkomi Aurica and Technical Service Center, so it didn't end being just Misha's corner... I'd be really happy if you made a new corner.
Nghh... for some reason, it seems that Misha's issue was quite popular.
At any rate, since the number of submissions to the Technical Service Center has diminished so much, maybe it's time to close it up. I'll consider this depending on the volume of submissions we receive the next issue, so while it's a little hard for me, I'll end this issue right here! So everyone, if you want to continue Technicalling with me, please make sure to send lots of submissions! Kyuukyuu!
Of course! Good grief! I can't really understand what are you all thinking, if we get results like these! And what is it with all these "There are few things I'd like to say about it" votes!? If there is anything you want to say, then please say it. Most likely, it's a system bug. Well, I'll keep the poll open for a while longer.
Lady Shurelia's kyuukyuu! is...
[ 癒される ] Healing.
[ 特に何とも… ] Nothing special...
[ 色々言いたいことがある ] There are a few things I'd like to say about it.
Lady Shurelia! What are you thinking, running a submission sent by yourself!?
And besides, you didn't say that getting in contents not related to the Technical Service Center isn't allowed!
I know how you feel, but please be more serious with your work!!
In any case, if the worst case scenario comes true, thanks to everyone for your long patronage!
And with this, this possibly-last issue of the Technical Service Center comes to an end.
If there is a next issue, I'll hope we see each other again!
We got a lot of submissions this time, too!
As I thought, the "Question Corner" is the most popular section, huh? Please, make sure to continue appreciating the Ar tonelico characters. And well, looks like we'll have to change the composition of some of the corners. If there's any particular feature you'd like us to add, or anything you'd like the characters doing, please make sure to send us your ideas! Well then, see you later!
