Gooding! Aurica here!
People read this place all hours of the day, right? So, I figured I'd better
make up a greeting that can work at any time of day. Hehe.
Oh yeah, that's right, this was a 5th week, but Friday was the very first
day of the next month's first week!
Sorry to anyone who was disappointed~! There might have been some special
present if it had really been a fifth Friday, too.
Well, let's keep on going with our exciting new Toukousphere!
Recently it occurred to me, what do all you posters do every day?
I'm so happy to have gotten so many new posts from you all lately!
In order to keep your effort from being wasted, we'll increase our efforts, as well!!
Don't forget to be grateful if your post was chosen!
I have another question for Lady Grannie. When Aurica and Misha sang Purger, it sounded completely different. How about Chronicle Key? Was Misha's song different from all the earlier Star Singers?
That's a good question. I think I'll give you a straight answer today.
Each of the Star Singers have sung Chronicle Key a different way.
Since Misha is the 33rd Star Singer, that means she's sung the 33rd variation on Chronicle Key.
...I think this might be written down somewhere, but not all of the Star Singers were able to properly craft Chronicle Key, so there were probably only... yes, less than twenty proper renditions, I think.
You know, I bet there would be a lot of demand for a CD called "Best of Chronicle Key: 3421-3770" Don't you think? I wonder if it would sell.
It might have a real effect on Em Pheyna's economy.
What's the deal with the Mind Guardians of all the young Supporteil ladies?
Even if it's kind of late to be prowling around their Cosmospheres.
If they don't have any, is it okay if I craft one with my Supporteil?
That's a rather interesting question.
There's nothing I can't answer... but I don't know if I want to this time.
Well, you could just go and make a Mind Guardian if you wanted.
After all, whatever you call her Mind Guardian will become her Mind Guardian.
Hmm, this is getting kind of philosophical.
In any case, if you do craft a Mind Guardian, make sure to take a commemorative photo and post it on your webpage.
Most Reyvateils won't reveal their own Mind Guardians by themselves, so it could be an effective form of embarrassment play. Hmhm.
All the Reyvateils are connected through the Tower, so their Mind Guardians are inside the Tower, right? That means Hama and Don Leon could meet inside the Tower, right? Have you ever met?? I bet you'd bad-mouth Lyner over a cup of tea any time...
Sorry, but I've never met that stuffed bear!
Yes, it's true we can go between the Cosmospheres and the Binary Field, but we can't enter other people's Cosmospheres.
Besides, even if we could meet in the Binary Field, I wouldn't necessarily look like me, so...
There's lots of stuff I'd love to say about that idiot, so I'd love to meet Don Leon. But, the laws of the universe won't let that happen!!
I think Aurica's been way too dark lately.
I think she ought to do something to remind people of why they like her.
That's what you'd need to do to overturn the results of the popularity contest! No, I mean, it's inevitable! So, good luck >_<
Hmmm? What a pain.... Still, you're right, it's pretty important.
Well, um, I... I, Aurica Nestmille!
Well, um...... My dream is to open a music box factory.
So, um... I... actually, I'm... looking for someone to help me make music boxes.
But, nobody wants to help me make music boxes together...
I"m clumsy, and shy, and darkI mean, um... it might be hard to approach me...
Oh, um, but, I, if I could find someone to help me make music boxes... I'd devote my all to them...!
I'd make them dinner every day, and whisper in their ear every morning until they wake up, and if they wanted children I'd make them tooas long as they wanted to name them Don Leon
So... what do you say...?
Eh, ehehe.... it's... kind of embarrassing to say all this....
I bet nobody feels that way... geez...
Just as I was about to start enjoying my birthday, I realized I left my wallet at work.
I couldn't buy the book I'd really been looking forward to getting.
I was really breaking down in tears when midnight rolled around.
Please, someone, heal my soul...
Ha! Ha! Ha! That must have been terrible for you!
But, it's not like you dropped your wallet, so don't get so down about it.
If you can get your wallet back when you go to work tomorrow, just go to the bookstore after that.
See? Just think that you've extended your enjoyment for one more day.
Anyway, happy birthday.
I have a question for Lady Shurelia.
Why is it that whenever you wear Linkage you never stumble, but you're always falling over in your standard costume?
I want to know so bad that I can't sleep at night, so please tell me
I think Lady Shurelia would deny a lot of that, so I, Meimei, will take her place.
Please pay close attention to Lady Shurelia's feet when she's wearing Linkage in the game.
She's floating, isn't she?
So, as you can see, it's impossible for her to fall in such a state.
Still, her balance might be thrown off my large boulders or enormous piles of books.
That's our Lady Shurelia, that's what makes her the tower's administrator!
Nice to meet you all. Actually, I've never played or watched Ar tonelico, but
I started using Supporteil. (Because the Reyvateils were so adorable! ^_^v )
So, I don't really know the characters that well. My only real information source
is the Toukousphere, but as I was reading it, I was thinking...
Lyner's kind of an unfortunate character, isn't he?
He's in such an unusual situation, so I hope someone can explain it to me.
Just what's so unfortunate about my situation, anyway?
I don't really get it, but anyway, the Best Hits version comes out on December 7, so you should buy it!
If you do, you'll see there's nothing unfortunate about me.
And then you'll understand the appeal of Funbuns!
Funbuns are amazing, right!?
I could write 1000 reports about Funbuns, but it wouldn't compare to tasting the real thing!
So, hurry up and buy the Best Hits version and see what Funbuns are all about! That's a promise between us, right, Rui-chan?
Hello! I always enjoy reading the Toukousphere.
Reading Aurica's response last time, I couldn't help but think,
1 leaf is really 200 yen, right?
(1 letter = 3000 leaf / Radolf (about 5 letters) / 3000*5 = 15000 leaf /
300000 yen / 150000 leaf = 200)
So, the cheapest option is something like Kitty Candy (猫飴), which could come out to
around 240 yen, right? That seems pretty expensive... I wonder how much a whole
bucket full would cost. I'm really curious.
Last time I said one letter is just 3000 leaf, so that would be about 30000 Japanese yen.
So, 5 letters would be 15000, leaf, which is about 150000 Yen, right?
In other words, 1 leaf is about 10 yen, got it?
That was really educational, right? So you should pay me 5000 Leaf in Japanese yen as teacher's fees within a week♪
So my older sister told me "There's this game called Ar tonelico"
and I replied "Huh? Ar and Nelico? What's that?"
'cause "to" in Japanese means "And".
I'd love to meet those two, Ar and Nelico.
I dunno who Nelico is, but I definitely know an Ar.
See? Jack's Teru name in Japanese is Ar, right? Misha and Lyra call him that all the time.
So, maybe we could really find a girl named Nelico.
Oh, but the the game's subtitle is "The girl who keeps singing", so I'd really feel sorry for her.
But, wait, that would make this game a love story between Jack and Nelico, right?
Oh, but any work with the name of a boy and a girl in the title is usually a tragedy, right?
You know, like Romeo and Juliet, or Tristan and Isolde.
So, I guess Ar and Nelico is also a tragic love story...
Okay, a 250 leaf version would be fine!
That's perfect, since I'm good at cooking. I'm great at making cooking work somehow!
If all you've got is 250 leaf, I'll make it work with 250 leaf ingredients somehow.
That's right... the best cake you could make for 250 leaf...
Yeah, you can't leave out the montacababoo. Or the gogozol or erohine...
It'll take a while to remove the poison, but... Oh, well. Just pretend we kept them waiting.
Let's see... I can't use wheat flour like this, so I'll have to use ash instead...
And... instead of baking powder, I'll get some foaming agent from Krusche-chan!
Whipped cream is a little too expensive, so... I know, I'll get some shaving cream from Lyner.
Okay! This'll be just fine!
I can make this for 250 leaf, so I hope you'll look forward to it!
I don't know if he'd trigger my flag or not, but Lyner certainly does trigger too many flags.
Still, even if he triggers a lady's flag, he doesn't realize it because he's too insensitive, which must be hard on his companions.
......so, that being the case, all those flags should just be converted to Lyner's death flag, don't you think?
Don Leon's Confessional Dojo
I sent Santa a letter that said I wanted a Don Leon.
I'm looking forward to Christmas.
I'm not just some thiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnng!
And just what did you expect to get as a present!?
I'm only for Miss Aurica! Nobody but Miss Aurica may receive meeee!
I'll beat your impudent thoughts into shape!
Bow down right there!! I'll punish youuuuuuuuuuuu!
However! First, I... You... you always go to sleep hugging a stuffed animal, don't you...
If that's the case...
You fiend! What are you making me saaaayyyyy!
There's no way your soul could make my spirit waver in...
The complicated sections of my heart! My heart!!!
This is my first image post, so I'm kind of nervous.
I really like Ayatane, but we don't see him much. I hope this image has an unusual atmosphere to it.
What an Electra c-.... actually, I think his feelings for his mother are part of his charm.
It's Ayatane! I just love how dashing he is!
But, where is this picture taking place!? In some field at night?
This is my first time trying to draw Lady Shurelia! (o^-^o)
Her corset has short sleeves; I thought that would be cold, so I gave her gloves!!
"Be careful, you're going to catch cold!"
Kind of like that...
Lady Shurelia is really adorable, so I'd like to try drawing her again!!
This is my first time posting to the Toukousphere, so I'm really nervous♪
Well, see you~
This is my third post~
Mayuru→Hana. So... this time it's finally the three heroines!
But it wouldn't be interesting if it was their normal outfits *g*
So, I drew them in their Marie, Ellie and Lita costumes☆
And who's the one who's late and rushing to catch up? It's Lady Shurelia!
I've finally drawn some AT-like characters... *sweatdrop*
Wow, Aurica really stands out!
It's amazing how well everyone looks in their Atelier costumes.
Don't tell anyone, but the reason why Misha's Ellie costume is for little Misha is because of her breast size!
Lady Shurelia looks really nice in Lita's outfit, but she's nowhere near as athletic!
This time I wanted to shine some light on those former partners,
Fayma and Radolf.
I'd like to think that they didn't have a relationship just as
an RT and her knight, but were able to rely on each other as
friends as well.
She may be an excellent RT, but as I drew this I realized we don't
really know a lot about her; what kind of person she is, what
Aurica thinks of her and how she would interact with her and
so on. I'd love to hear about this from Aurica some day.
It's Radolf and Fayma! We don't see pictures of these two that often! This is super special!
We really don't know if Aurica and Fayma ever met.
Fayma wasn't Radolf's partner when Aurica came to the Church. By the way, the OVA is the only side story, and it doesn't quite mesh with canon.
I always enjoy reading the Toukousphere. This time, as the creator of the "Lady Shurelia Alliance", I thought I'd come to Hama's Submissions Dojo to prea... er, I mean, to tell people about it.
Somehow a year has already passed, and it's become winter. So, I decided to draw Lady Shurelia in winter. I hope everyone remembers to wear warm clothing so they don't get too cold this winter.
It's Lady Shurelia in a coat!
Lady Shurelia's been really popular lately! You should all draw more Misha pictures!
Anyway, she sure looks warm.
It's really cold in the Rinkernator where Lady Shurelia spends all her time, though.
After I got my third posting last time, I thought "sending any more pictures in
would be pushing it!", so I worried about whether to draw anymore, but a lot
of people on the Suppolog told me "Keep at it!" and "Go for 4 or 5!", and I was
so happy to hear their encouragement I decided I'd post again!
I'm so grateful to everyone who sent me comments!
...so, this time I drew Hama-chan under the threat(?) of Lyner's rampant
Funbun-ism. The curse-like words wafting around his head are from the
last Toukousphere; I took part of his passionate speech about Funbuns.
I can only draw pictures like this, but do you mind if I keep posting them, Hama-chan!?
Eeeeek! It's meeeeeeeee!
And I'm getting a Funbuuuuuun!!
But, I'm sorry to say... I've tasted Funbuns so much I'm pretty tired of them now.
Why...? Well, after that idiot ate those Funbuns, I...
...um, I didn't say anything!!
▼"Emotion words" that convey feeling: the basis of Hymmnos!
The basis of Hymmnos is something called "emotion words": three words that begin every sentence.
For example, take the first line of Singing Hill: "Rrha ki ra tie yor..."
The first three words, "Rrha ki ra", are the emotion verbs.
These three words serve the purpose of expressing the singer's feelings.
Here's what each of the words 「Rrha ki ra」means:
Rrha = trance-like state ki = concentrating ra = I want to remain like this
Basically, it means something like "Right now my mind is off somewhere else, but it feels nice so I want to stay like this~".
...er, well, it's kind of an odd example, so the translation is a bit unusual, too... normally people almost never use "Rrha ki ra".
I think the most commonly used emotion words are probably "Wee yea ra"
Wee = fairly yea = happy ra = I want to remain like this
For example, if someone you just met gave you a present, if you said 「Wee yea ra!!」 it would mean something like "Wow!! I'm really happy!!"
There aren't very many words you can use as emotion words, but you can still express a lot of feelings through the different combinations, so you can spend a lot of time enjoying Hymmnos just this way.
▼Add a verb after the emotion words, and you're done!
Actually, if you just put a single word (verb) after the emotion words, that's all you need for Hymmnos!
For example, "Wee yea ra hymme"would be
Wee = fairly yea = happy ra = I want to remain like this hymme = sing
So, that would mean something like "I'm so happy about singing I can't help myself."
Isn't that easy?
That's enough for today.
Our next lesson will be "Don't Hymmnos sentences have subjects?"
Now, it's time for everyone's homework!
I want you to try translating the English sentence below into Hymmnos.
"Protecting you makes me feel ultimate happiness!"
You can also find the word for "to protect" by searching the Hymmnoserver, so please be sure to use it.
In this section I'll post a few representative answers from people who submitted correct responses.
Please submit your answers using the Toukousphere post box.
Since there wasn't any homework this time, I'd like to show you a letter from a brave soul who posted to the Toukousphere.
Yes! That's very good!
Hearing you say that makes me very happy.
I hope you'll continue to love hearing Hymmnos!
You can find out the meaning of that sentence if you enter it into the Hymmnoserver, so please try it.
Since so many people voted to have a Hymmnos lecture last time, we decided we'd give it a try.
It will start out fairly simple, so I hope those of you who think "I already knew all that!" will wait patiently.
Well, I hope you all enjoy the next Toukousphere! (Tsuchiya)
