And if we designed something that could turn into a gigantic spear or sword? And if we modify something like a booster, and design it so it can be easily used by even a human whenever it changes to weapon form, making it into a super powerful weapon wouldn't be a problem!!
It's almost Christmas!
Lady Cloche has her fanclub, Luca and Skycat being lovey-dovey is alright
and all, but what's Croix going to do?
Currently, I'm thinking that he would just go to work, eat oden and then go to sleep... but I'm hoping that isn't the case. *sweatdrops*
At least, please let him have a fun Christmas, such as trying Spica's cold medicines, or spending a heated night with Prince Targana wondering if he should let himself go with the flow, okay?♪ *laughs*
(There Was an Unexpected Option)
Christmas is the busiest time of the year for us Therapists.
Every minute and every second, there's so many people who want to escape
reality, that the line only keeps growing and growing even overnight.
Well, I do understand how they feel, but still...
I'm also busy until dawn on Christmas.
People who don't want to spend the night alone keep pushing their way into Bon Beltan because we have a cute maid as myself here.
And because of all that, I can't meet with Milady. This will be such a lonely Christmas!
If it's going to get so lonely, I'd be better off drinking sake until I pass out...
Under the orders of Lady Cloche, I have to wait until Sasha goes to sleep to enter her house and leave presents beside her bed pillow.
Since I have to make sure that Sasha is happy when she wakes up and sees them, looks like I'll be spending Christmas alone in her attic.
...Have you finally gone senile? I said "that was a nice bath in the hot springs", so of course I went.
I've got tired from having to do the follow-up to you both all the time lately. It's because you two aren't putting all your energies into this from several issues ago that all this fatigue built up.
But you've gotten pretty advanced in age too, so you shouldn't do anything reckless either.
Hot springs! How great! They're very effective for rheumatism and circulatory problems, right?
I'd like to try going to one once. If I did, maybe my blood would flow a little better and I'd get sharper.
...You're sharp enough already.
Rather, Shurelia does need them, as she seems to be developing arteriosclerosis.
Hnnngg! Who has ever heard of someone developing arteriosclerosis during their teens?
Why did the designers add wings to Frelia?
I don't really get the point of purposely making these wings, as they'd be pretty inconvenient for things like sleeping...
Hmm, I wonder why they made me with wings too. I don't really know, but someone told me before they were a "symbol", and that I was given them because they were the symbol of this project. But thanks to that, I'm having a lot of trouble.
I'll make a decisive guess and say it was one of the main elements of "moe" at the end of the First Era.
I'm sure it was because you were designed as a "moe" character.
This is my first contribution. Pleased to make your acquaintance.
Well, about the Tower Administrators, in the Technical Service Center of issue #57, Lady Shurelia said that the only living Reyvateils that would be able to become Administrators would be Frelia and β-6D, but then... that means that it's impossible for Tyria to become one?
That means that being an Origin doesn't necessarily mean being the Administrator for one of the Ar tonelico Towers?
...Or maybe... Lady Shurelia was wrong...?
...Hmph. Although several things might point to the opposite, this isn't something in which I'd dare to pry into.
And well, I'll be giving just a tentative answer for now, since I don't know, nor I can research about the Reyvateils that I have never met on person, neither Shurelia could do that kind of research. Of course, that's just natural.
So even if this comes from my own mouth, I only know about Tyria from the things
that my acquaintance from the Third Tower told me, and the conclusions I got from
them were that Tyria isn't able to become an Ar tonelico Administrator. The
reasons behind that will be left for you to imagine.
But in Frelia's case, if she actually wanted to, she could become one.
To defeat Lakra, who was in the Binary Field, Croix Dived into Cocona and destroyed her Boundary Gate.
According to Jakuri and the Dive Shopkeeper, apparently the Boundary Gate is necessary to maintain the ego of the Reyvateils, and they would die if the Gate was ever destroyed.
In the end, Cocona didn't end having a mental collapse and recovered, but having the Boundary Gate destroyed wouldn't really pose any problems when it comes to her living, or for her to sing Songs when she finally matures?
Basically, it would be extremely difficult for a mind to keep its normal state if the Boundary Gate was destroyed.
Still, since I don't know at all how is the system used by the IDPs, I can't add more to the above explanation.
The systems of the IPDs differ in several points from the ones used by the First Era Reyvateils, so since they have some details upgraded in comparison to them, it might be possible for the Gate to regenerate on its own or to detach the damaged parts.
Well, I don't think the world is so kind though.
The Telemo come in types like portable, stationary and public-use, right?
Telemo is the general term for information transmission methods that allow to send information through Symphonic Power, so there are many types to them.
For example, the holograms in Pastalia City are Public Simplex Telemos, while the one Croix has is a Private Bidirectional Telemo, and the one placed in his house is a Stationary Bidirectional Telemo.
There are also other types like Business Telemos, Encryption Telemos that make use of a specific wave frequency band, but they all basically have in common that they can send and receive voice and image data.
Telemos are one of the technologies from the First Era that are still alive, but it looks like there were some specialized lines for exclusive use of the Reyvateils back then.
Basically, they were Telemos for the inner world of the Reyvateils, and I think they allowed them to communicate in a way similar to telepathy.
Here's a question I've been wanting to ask since some time ago.
When I listened to EXEC_HARMONIOUS/. and read its lyrics for the first time, I noticed something.
That Misha sings in Harmonious "Metafalica", which was given the meaning of "Song of Hope".
Could you explain this, please?
Did Misha read about the legends of Metafalica in some book, and were they
similar in anything to the legends that were the feelings put into EXEC_with.
(Dark Creeper Castle)
I think that, most likely, Misha pulled out the word [Metafalica] from the feelings I had put originally into that song, and that's because that used to be the most important word for me. When she understood the feelings that I had towards the Metafalica word, and tried to express them in the most accurate way
possible, Misha ended singing it with the meaning of "Song of Hope".
As you might guess, the Hymmnos of Harmonious is a song I crafted while imagining how the "Project Metafalica" that was executed in the First Era could have been. That was because, at the time, I read a lot of books about the civilization and history of the people of Metafalss, and I was very deeply moved by their ideologies and how the driving feelings behind them were to create the legendary Utopia of Metafalica.
I sketched these feelings for the Utopia, and crafted a song with the purpose
of giving everyone these feelings about Metafalica I used to have back then...
...I think I talked too much today.
You were very rounded out today, Jakuri.
I-I'm not fat!
It's true I ate a full course meal, but...
I don't think she meant it that way, rather she's referring to how you answered the questions much more gently than usual.
And I'm very concerned about that meal you ate. How tasty did it feel having eaten it all on your own!?
And this was the last Toukousphere for this year. Everyone, a lot of thanks for having supported for yet another year.
I'm very happy, as after checking the first Toukousphere we published this year, I saw how all your submissions, number of accesses and votes didn't decrease, and far from that, instead kept on increasing.
I'll continue thinking up way to enrich the contents in which we appreciate even more the communication existing between us for the rest of this year and the coming one. I'll do my best so a " this season" Ar tonelico will always keep existing.
Please, keep on working with us the next year too!
