This is the corner where we seriously answer questions about the physical laws and technical aspects of the Ar tonelico world.
Those who want to challenge the mysteries of the Ar tonelico world, we'll receive your letters here.
However, we'll only answer one question per person. Make sure to follow this rule
Wait a second, Jakuri! What do you think you are doing!?
Next time, it'll be my turn. Huhu, good job with the title call.
There was a scene in which Croix sang in Hymmnos to convey his feelings to a certain Mother, but then that means that when you are conveying your feelings to a Reyvateil, it would be better to do in Hymmnos than in normal speech to make them resound in her heart?
Well... that's right. But that doesn't necessarily mean I wouldn't have felt attracted to him because he sang in Hymmnos.
When a human sings Hymmnos, there are several things that can be perceived from the song in a way or another. However, it's absurd to ask of them to have the same level of precision that would be had in conversation between fellow Reyvateils or with a Heart of the Land.
After all, they're humans, and that's why they have lumps of negative and idle thoughts.
When Croix sang, it was like... he recklessly had slapped me with a challenge letter... something like that. So rather than having felt something from the Hymmnos itself, he actually learned Hymmnos only to do that or something, so... err, at that time... it was like a surprise attack, so it was an extremely hard fight that started because he sang to me before I could be mentally ready! That sort of thing!
W-what!? If you wanna say something, then spit out already!
Huhu... how naive. Do you think I'm so easy to figure out that I'd give her the Togasaki surname just because she is an Origin?
Normally, the kanji surname 円田 is read as "Enta", and it's read as such in my stories too. But the true surname is other: it's "Maruta"... so yeah, she's "Maruta" just because she lives in Sol Marta.
I have a question about the Maidens.
When the Maiden of Homura inherits the D-Cellophane from her predecessor, does she have any possibility of giving it to another person, and be replaced by her? Though now it was returned to Lady Frelia...
And also... what is the exact definition of the Maiden of Mio?
It seemed to be something like "Since you can sing Replekia, you can control Infel Phira, which is the proof of the Maiden of Mio], which could also be interpreted as "You can control it, so you're the Maiden" or "If you are the Maiden, then you should be able to control it".... Does this mean that is possible for any other IPD to become the Maiden of Mio?
Uhh.... but in which way did they manipulate Infel Phira when the EXEC_HIBERNATION/. that Luca tried to sing was sung by Lady Frelia...?
Our rules state that only one question can be asked at a time, right? And
we have to follow them, right? So, for know, I will answer only one question.
This time, I'll explain how the ability of singing Replekia is related to being a Maiden. You could conclude it as "If you are the Maiden, then you should be able to control it". In the first place, the way itself of calling her a "Maiden" is not the name she receives within the systems, but the political term for her, and as such, strictly speaking, that popular way of calling her doesn't have any relationship to things such as the systems of Replekia.
Strictly speaking, while this wasn't mentioned in the conversations during the game, only the ones that have gone through the process of "Queen Registration" are bestowed the title of [Maiden of Mio].
The Queen Registration simply consists in registering the Spectrum Gene of an IPD as the Queen, however, this also involves unlocking an special bus within Infel Phira (with you could grasp as involving the connection of nerves and thought patterns, among other things).
At that time, if the IPD isn't able to reach a fixed synchronicity with Infel
Phira, she won't be able to meet the requirements needed for the registration
and will end with her mind destroyed.
This is why one of the defects Infel Phira has is the low number of high-level IPD Reyvateils, and why the Queen Registration wasn't performed anymore after Infel, given the great risks it carrid.
By the way, EXEC_HIBERNATION/. is merely hacking Infel Phira from the outside, so it isn't related to its systems in any way. This was explained in detail in a previous Toukousphere, so please, go and read if you wish to know about it, okay?

This is my first question, so please, treat me kindly!
Is the Install Port for the human women that turn into Reyvateils due to the awakening of their Reyvateil qualities created (?) and appears by itself?
Can it appear by itself as they are sleeping due to the outbreak of their Reyvateil traits?
As since awakened Reyvateils need the Life Extending Agent to survive, using it would be pointless on a Reyvateil that lacks an Install Port... hmm (*sweatdrops*)... so, what actually happens?
The Install Port appears as something similar to a birthmark as the Reyvateil qualities are manifesting themselves. Long ago, the awakening of the Reyvateil qualities wasn't understood by the people, and thus it was treated as a disease called the "Tattoolist Syndrome".
Since the awakening caused the appearance of a birthmark on a part of the body and a sudden fever, it was thought to be a natural disease. For a short time, the birthmark would have a very fuzzy and chaotic shape, but then it would get formed and end up taking a proper shape, similar to the ones Misha and Aurica have now.
The speed at which this happens differs for each person, so I can't really give an average time for it.
Try conducting a careful survey on all the Hymmnos crafters. The Hymmnos in which the word "bird" appears frequently are limited to only a handful of singers.
Right, and even though there's also someone I won't mention included among them, I'll now explain the theory behind this: Hymmnos and Song Magic are in essence a direct connection to the heart of the Reyvateil who crafted them.
That's why it's natural for the tendencies and habits of the Reyvateil to come out on them. And isn't it like that for you all too? You also have habits when writing lyrics, and words you use frequently.
It's the same for us.
I thought you both had finally turned into good friends, but you're still fighting. It seems like you won't become good friends no matter what, so we're going to try changing things up a little next time.
Starting next time, we'll each have one issue in which the chosen person will answer questions all on her own.
W-wait there, Frelia! What have you just decided!?
Huhu, doesn't it sound interesting? Lately I've been somewhat on the mood to tease Shurelia.
Lately, I've been milling about on the Web-related projects, so I've feeling like I wish I could turn back these busy days!
But since I'm also working on projects I like a lot, that also lets me connect my efforts to making the next works that will let you all have more fun.
There are lots of tops, downs and painful things during this, but I'll still continue doing my best, and work hard to bring some fun to everyone, no matter how little it is.
I'll continue protecting the AT "world" for as long as I can. So, I hope to see you next issue! (Tsuchiya)
