No problem! Anyway, let's talk about Ar tonelico 3's Cosmospheres.
Lots of different personalities show up in the Ar tonelico 3 Cosmospheres, so
it's a really different experience, right?
I've heard rumors that Finnel's Cosmosphere is particularly amazing.
I hope you'll talk about that a little bit.
Well, um, I don't really know what goes on in my own Cosmosphere, you know.
How does it feel? Ummm... H-how should I know!?
Besides, they're not stealing all of my popularity, anyway!
I get some really super-class emotional spectacles at the end! My Cosmosphere
is a moving Cosmosphere full of love!
Mmmmm, I guess it's just like mine, then. That must mean Luca's Cosmosphere
was the most amazing, huh?
Well, Luca's personality is the only one everyone still thinks is really
strange when all's said and done.
Huh!? Why are we talking about me noooow!?
'cause I don't like the way you've been acting lately, Luca.
Ever since I saw the April First Toukousphere
I realized I was kinda dumb for sweating the small stuff, and felt a lot
I hope I can learn from you all and live an exciting, crazy life, too.
He said he's going to go travelling around to try to find himself again.
I guess you can't really erase what happens on April First after all.
We always say it never happened, but we still get lots of posts about the
And Croix always takes everything pretty seriously, so......
Man, it's not really all that, y'know?
He taught me a new way of thinkin' about breasts, and it's really opened my
But, Croix was really important to the Toukousphere, right?
What's gonna happen now that he's gone?
Well, a lot's changed since then!
Besides, Croix being gone is a pretty bad thing for the Toukousphere.
We need you here to plug the gap that opened when he ran off.
So, Arru, come on out and answer some of our users' posts!
......I, I guess we'll just
have to do what we can!!
It'll all work out if we just respond to more posts like last time, right!?
I'm still left with some of my worries - I mean, I'm really ONLY left with my
worries at this point, but let's get started!!
Huh? What're these books doing under here!? I've never seen these before...
And, hey, these covers are kinda sexy. This is weird, I've never had any
books like this before...
I guess this must mean it's not a sexy book after all, right? I guess I'd
better see what they are, then......
Oh, so it is. Anyone expecting anything else would be completely disappointed as
soon as they opened it.
It's only got bikini pictures in it, which would totally crush the dreams,
hopes, and expectations of any interested party.
I think they'd be better off looking at a Purged Arru then picking up a
book like this, honestly.
You've never seen a book like this before, right, Aoto?
Well, lemme tell you, Arru's Purged form is way more revealing than the cover
or pinups in that thing
Hey! D-don't bring me up in
this kind of conversation!!
Stop looking at me like that, Aoto, it's creepy!!
Hey, I can't help it, y'know!?
It would be weirder if I didn't look at you, the way this conversation's
That's dirty, Aoto!!
You shouldn't stare at girls' bodies like that!!
That cushion really sold out in the blink of an eye.
The first release sold out in a day. It sounds like the second release sold out
in 6 hours, even though there were 1000 cushions made.
As a result, GUST have decided to make a 3rd run available starting on Sunday,
April 19th. If you haven't gotten your hands on one yet, good luck.
I was really surprised - it sold a lot faster than we expected.
So, Subby was gonna take a break from the Toukousphere for a while, but
we forced her back today.
Hey, say something to all the people who bought it and are hoping to get one.
Well, you're Subframey, so that just shortens to Subby, right?
Anyway, we can't let you take a break from the Toukousphere that easily.
Even if you say you want a break, we might force you back at any time as long
as you haven't collapsed or run off on a journey.
So, hurry up and say something for our users, okay?
Oh, fine, whatever!!
I've only shown up in the Toukousphere a handful of times, so why do I have
to keep coming back all the time already!?
It's all because so many inferior creatures have bought my cushion!!
What kind of sad masochists would want a cushion with all that abusive
language on it!?
......Is it really okay to let her say that kind of thing here?
If she doesn't end it with something like, "but, thank you", it makes her sound
like she's really angry instead of just being tsundere......
People would get mad if she did that, okay!?
The Subframe can't get all dere-dere; if she does, there's no meaning to her
If she did say something like that, what do you think would happen?
The very next instant, we'd get a ton of posts saying, "What the hell were
you thinking making Lady Shitframe be all nice like that!?". It's a fact.
So, Harvestasha, keep spewing your abuse all over our readers.
You're the only person who's allowed to say things like that, after all.
Ha! Ha! Ha! What are you saying? There's no way people would think I'm a pervert.
I'm obviously a normal doctor, as anyone can see.
As proof, I brought the Trulywaath family here today for their opinion.
Please, tell them, everyone, I'm not a pervert.
Oh, come on, doctor, don't get so angry.
You shouldn't be so worried, even if people do think you're a pervert.
After all, you're lucky to be the proud companion of a lady who's seen your
bare your body in battle and loves you for it.
Even if you are a pervert, you're a winner, so be proud!
N-no, that's... that's not why I feel in love with him......
The Ar tonelico series has given us three high-level engineers in Lyner, Croix,
and Aoto, so I bet they could make something really amazing now that they're all together in the Toukousphere, right?
I can make anything as long as I've got a recipe card.
Why don't we try making something when Croix gets back, Aoto?
Hey, that sounds like a lotta
Okay, let's pick out a bunch of great-looking recipe cards, and we can make
'em all when he gets back.
A collaboration between the three main characters...... I can imagine how
amazing that will be.
Yurisica...... You seem like a completely different person since you've come
to the Toukousphere.
But that's not me at all!!
Don't you think it's completely unfair for people to take such liberties with
my personality in their Cosmospheres or Binary Fields!?
I'm starting to think I should ask for reparations.
If you want a manlier image, then let me give you one of these fundoshi as a present.
From the minute you finish tying it around both your body and your soul, people
won't be able to see you as anything but a man.
Here's a red one, what do you say?
Chester, don't listen to anything another glasses character says.
It'll just lead you down a strange and twisted road.
Coo's not around, so I'll take this one.
The jet engine in that spear isn't specced to go that high.
It was only meant to hit someone right in front of you, right?
Still, he does have that weapon I made for him, the Multispeed Vernier, and
that one's a little different.
If you pushed that up to full throttle, you could fly away from Metafalss
before you knew it.
......Wouldn't that, like, be
really bad for the person using it?
Ahahahaha, no way, I mean, it's Coo, right?
The Hope of the Grand Bell Knights is made of tougher stuff than normal people,
so it's not like he'd fall apart from the force or anything.
He's so tough, even if his weapon exploded, he'd come out without a scratch!!
Arru, it's a little late to bring up his weapon exploding, so maybe that's
not the best place to try to bring things back to earth, okay?
Besides, it's not that unusual for weapons to explode in Ar tonelico 2.
I feel like my common sense is going to explode now......
What do you like so much about Garzbern!?
Of COURSE I remember! You have a dragon form, just like Sleipnir, right!?
I'd love to see your dragon form some time, Sir Garzbern.
I'm sure you'd be a mighty dragon who could flap your wings even stronger
Ha! Ha! Ha! I see, I see, so you wanna see me turn into a dragon!!
If you're gonna go so far as to ask, I can't turn you down.
Well, if we can go somewhere more open without anything in the way, I'd
be happy to show you as a special favor.
Well, you see, she probably can't help being that way in front of Garzbern.
I have to admit I have an eye for his big, burly muscles, myself.
But, I'll never forget my honey's first-class strong arms and big, broad
...I know that Mute would take that as being sweet-talked, but for some
reason I just can't hear it that way, myself...
I'd gotten the impression it might turn out that way before he showed up, but... Aoto, you're the youngest of the main characters' band of three brothers.
You're definitely in the position to be spoiled (in many ways) by those who preceded you...
Your hair's already white, so people around you might not realize when you get stressed, so if you even develop ulcers, make sure you check into a hospital...
Don't worry, he's not gonna get that stressed that easily.
I mean, look at it this way, right?
They said Croix was gonna get a hole in his stomach and go totally bald
when he showed up, but he's never collapsed or anything, right?
......Didn't he go off on a
"journey of self-discovery"?
Y-yeah, I guess so... well, I'm sure he'll be back soon, so he's
It's certainly true that it's unprecedented for a member of the Toukousphere
to force a sabbatical by running off.
If it happened again in the future, well...... No, I think probably nobody in
the Toukousphere would be that surprised, would they?
W-well, in any case, I think everyone knew Croix would have to do something
like this once April First was over.
So, nobody's really surprised.
B-but, he has a reason for wanting to run off, right?
I don't really understand that reason, but since ran off on his own, I think
we should go try to look for him!!
Why don't we all try to cheer him up?
I think that would probably have the opposite effect.
We should probably just leave him alone for a while.
...I didn't think even Lyner had gotten such a weird impression.
W-well, I guess I bear some responsibility for keeping it a secret, but...
Anyway, I don't want people to think weird things about me, so I'm not going
to show it to you.
But, it's not the kind of book a boy would want to read, so don't get
any funny ideas like that.
Yurisica, you should settle down a little, too.
I don't think a heroine like Lady Misha would read a book like that,
And, even if it's a normal book, it's a fact that she wants to keep it
secret for some reason.
I believe it would be best to just let it lie for now.
Now that I think about it, Cocona's never fallen apart in any 4/1 Toukousphere.
Not just this one, but the last one, and the time before that, too.
But even Sasha broke down last year.
I hope to see Cocona make up for it next year.
PS: Blue Canyon looks pretty straightforward in comparison, but...
(Nyo? of Hachijo Island)
Aoto would probably have a fairly perverted personality......
Nice to meet you, this is my first post!!
I finally beat 3 the other day. I was a high school senior last year, and 3's
release date was the day before my entrance exams, so it was pretty hard
holding off playing it *g*
Anyway, I have a question for Cocona!
I've been wondering about this ever since they first released pictures before
the game came out, but your hair ornaments match the ones worn by your beloved
Croix's, don't they!?
Please, tell us about when you got them!
(I love pumpkins)
Match? Actually, these are the ones I gave Cro.
I gave them to him as a good luck charm, but when I went out on my journey, he
said I was the one who needed good luck, so he let me hold on to them for a
I've been lonely sometimes ever since leaving Metafalss, but having these
hair ornaments has really helped me keep going on!
...Sooo, what's the punchline?
What do you mean? It's not
Geez, boo on you for even saying something like that, boo!!
Oh, that's right, you didn't know, did you, Aoto?
Stories about Cocona and Croix always end up as nice, heartwarming stories,
no matter what.
There's never a punchline in stories like that, so don't even expect one.
By the way, it's an official fact that the hair ornament Cocona wears is
I don't know if it's in the setting book or not, it definitely says "Croix's
hair ornament" on Cocona's design sheet.
...Still, it's definitely true that stories about Cocona and Croix never
turn out weird no matter how much you try to get them to.
That's one of the mysteries of the Toukousphere.
So, we can't get any more out of this subject.
Well, onto the next post.
Hey, staff members, what kind of spoilers are you putting down here!?
I thought, I thought, I was sure that Tyria had big breasts, unlike the other two!
But you betrayed my expectations!
Ahhh, what am I supposed to look forward in 3 now...?
All the characters from AT3 should have a good look now.
If you say something that gets someone really mad, they'll pay you back for it so mercilessly you won't be able to show up in the Toukousphere for a while.
So, even if someone makes a really funny post, don't get carried away and say something you shouldn't, alright?
Nah, it's fine.
Sure, I'd heard that Funbuns existed over 700 years ago, but my goal was to personally verify as many sources as I could.
I think what Tyria said is true, but it's still important to arrive at that kind of conclusion through documented evidence.
Don't forget, they say that the joy of being human is in doing the work to get there yourself!!
So, I'm still gonna try to find my own evidence that they had Funbuns 700 years ago,
and then I'll tell the whole world what I found.
A game where you're raising me?
Mmmm...... that could get pretty out of hand, though.
I really couldn't do anything for myself when I first started living with Cro.
So there's really a whole lot Cro's had to teach me.
No way, he taught me a lot more than that.
We probably spent the most time on studying, I think.
I grew up in the slums, so I really couldn't even read when I first met
Croix, and I couldn't really do any math.
He taught me everything about working around the house, too, and he even taught
me proper table manners for when we went out to eat!!
I had the most fun when he was teaching me how to cook, though.
Making food was really fun, and eating it together when it was finished
was really fun, too, and we were even able to clean up together, ehehe......
...I didn't know Croix
had such well-rounded skills.
Hmmm, I wonder if it's my imagination that it feels like we've already laid the foundations for Akane's breakdown.
The fans really like her strict nature, so I hope she'll maintain her personality.
Oh, and if you don't mind me speaking my mind, even if she doesn't strip, I'm sure a lot of fans would be happy if she could get a costume change!
Rahoooi, Aki here!!
...I-it's going to be embarrassing saying that until I'm used to it.
Still, you can all rest assured that I'll be working hard to make sure
that my personality doesn't break down past a certain point, even in the Toukousphere.
Yep, that's what I figured, too.
...Oh yeah, Aki, you're a general, right?
As a general, you'd usually hide your identity in front of others, right?
Generals and officers and magistrates and other public figures always circulate among the public in disguise, right?
Th-that's ridiculous... Lady Aurica, surely you're joking?
Aki, are you serious!?
People in high positions like that are always supposed to disguise themselves and go out in public to see what the commoners feel and say first-hand!!
I mean, I'm a Maiden, but I also have my secret role in society as a Dive Therapist.
I think you should have a secret identity you can use to go out in public, too.
You can use the Toukousphere as a place to practice making your whole personality brighter so you can disguise yourself, not just your greetings!
Oh, come on, that doesn't make any sense.
What do you like better, my normal personality, or some version of me that likes humans?
Maybe you can't help being so indecisive because you're such an inferior being?
Well, no matter what you want, me being me, I'm not going to change my personality for you.
And stop calling me Shitframe!!
Do you really hate being called Lady Shitframe that much?
I mean, they're still calling you Lady, so it's proof that they respect you, right?
Come to think of it, Tastiella always really hates being called Lady Grannie, too.
Don't think you can call someone anything you want if you just stick Lady in front.
I can certainly understand that.
People should at least be more informal when they're finally getting to talk alone late at night!
We're both main characters, so we shouldn't be addressed so formally in such circumstances.
That's right, I know exactly what you're talking about!!
Polite speech and titles only put up a wall between the main character and his heroine!!
So, Lyner... you won't say things like that anymore, right?
Uh, ahahaha... Maybe I should go looking for Croix until things die down here, too?
Well, since Croix isn't here this time around, the rest of us will have
to work that much harder.
Still, a lot of people have come to help with the Survey Brigade over the
course of its lifetime, so I guess I don't have to worry too much about it
Anyway, let's start with the results from last time's questions!
There are a lot of people who want to enjoy exploring the world at their own pace.
Simulation games are like that, too. I wonder if Ar tonelico fans are naturally
predisposed to wanting to travel the world?
It looks like fighting games have some influence, too.
I guess everyone wants to fight as their favorite character.
I think I remember someone saying AT was going to have a fighting-like
battle system at one point long ago. They obviously scrapped that idea, though.
We'd probably be dead if there were always this many.
It sure is helpful having you with us now, though, Akane. Okay, our theme for next time is... Huh? Oh! Um, next time it'll be "My favorite character" again! We'll welcome any post that matches the theme, so be sure to send us something! Make sure you put 'Theme post "My favorite character"' in your submission.
Our theme for this time is "My favorite character"!!
This is a theme post for "My favorite character".
Hello, this is my first post.
I know this doesn't look that great, but these two are my two favorite characters from 3. I love how they're such a perfect hero & heroine couple. I look forward to seeing more of the characters from 3 from now on!
This is a theme post for "My favorite character".
Lady Cloche, I love yoooouu!! Master Croix already had a good deal to say about the appeal of Lady Cloche's Maiden outfit, so I decided to have her wear something from AT3.
I really love Lady Cloche.
Long live Lady Cloche!!!
This is a theme post for 'My favorite character'.
I probably wouldn't have gotten so wrapped up in the AT series if not for Luca, and I probably wouldn't have started drawing. That's how much I love Luca. 【ciellenne】 http://ciellenne.web.fc2.com/
This is a theme post for "My favorite character".
This is my beloved First Maiden of Mio with a Geometrica-like firearm. I love her so much I can't help wanting to draw her even though I don't quite understand how her outfit works.
Oh, well thank you.
I'm so happy I feel a gag coming up as a token of my thanks.
I suppose I'll save it for the next Infel Breeze, though.
Oh, unlike a lot of the other characters, I wear quite a bit, so it's probably
harder to figure out.
This is a theme post for "My favorite character".
I started working on this the instant Master Hama said "I won't allow any pictures of Jack looking cool". I have no regrets.
Lately he's seemed like a character who's always down on hard times in the Toukousphere, but I think Jack is essentially a really cool character. He made a really strong impression on me the way he was working really hard to take care of Misha while everyone else was trying to wake up Lady Shurelia. I remember being taken with him more and more as he exuded that aura of "I don't care how it looks, I'll do whatever it takes for someone I love". So, I decided to put those feelings into a picture of Jack from his days as Harmonica. It's not that great of a picture, but I hope it expresses at least some of Jack's greatness.
Finally, I love you, Jaaaaaaaaccckkkk!!!!!
It's so great to see someone out there appreciates me!
Oh, and thanks! You said something really great there! Yeah, that's right! I'm the only person who was against Misha singing, remember??
I wouldn't mind getting some more love for that decision.
This is a theme post for "My favorite character"!
This one line from Soma had quite an impact on me. She's definitely one of my favorite characters. Her and General Akane! Congratulations on your role in the Submission Dojo!
I'm sure the dojo will be a peaceful place now. I'd like to send in a picture of General Akane some time in commemoration!
Was it really that memorable? It was just a straightforward expression of
my joy at the time.
If someone asked you, "Would you like to eat some cake?", you'd probably say,
"Gladly!", right? It's just like that.
That's right! Whenever a customer would say, "One order of beer!", Milady
would always say, "Gladly!"
But sometimes when someone would say something like, "Are you trying to get
your customers eaten by bugs!?", she'd still say, "Gladly!"
It's not that unusual a thing to say!
Don't bring up my darkest secrets like thaaaat!
This is a theme post for "My favorite character".
Even if he doesn't stand out as the other main characters,
even if he's the only one who couldn't jump,
even if he keeps getting abused by the main ladies,
I love the Croix who took on the name "Breast Sommelier" in the Toujousphere.
Actually, I love Lady Cloche and Croix about the same, so I wasn't sure which to draw, but for some reason I decided on Croix.
...Next time I'll draw Lady Cloche.
Uhhh... Everything is filthy everywhere I go.
What the hell is this, anyway!?
Why would you be so happy to be turned into a dust cloth!? Were you all born
to be Cleansed or something?
I just don't know what to do anymore.
That's too bad. This place isn't like your world.
They'd be more likely to see it as a reward. Understand?
Birds really do suit me the best, don't they?
Anyway, this is a wonderful picture. Yes, that's it. This is true art, not
at all scandalous despite the high amount of skin exposure.
Yes, artists nowadays don't understand that; that's why they regulate
pictures like that these days.
Oh, you mean the Niconico Live Broadcast?
I don't think that's really fair, though.
I wasn't originally on the list, so I wouldn't have made it if you all hadn't voted for me, right?
But, it made me really happy! Thank you!
Well, you said to make it, so there's no way I'd not try to finish it by the next Submissions Dojo!
Anyway, this is my 23rd work, Finnel (there's no pictures of Kukurow so I'm hoping for something in the settei book. I don't have a PS3 so I don't know details of how he looks). Umm, congratulations on your new position, General. I look forward to your leadership!
A lot happened while I was making Finnel, like having parts pop and perform a real Purge, but as you can see, it's pretty big. It's about 160cm from the top of her head to her feet. I guess you could say it's life-sized. It's the biggest one I've made, and second in the number of balloons I needed only behind Misha.
There's more shots of her here: 【Leave That To Me!'s In Progress Diary】 http://sitihukuzinneru.blog43.fc2.com/
This... this is...!!!
I'm truly amazed. To think that you actually made it when I said I'd like to see it next time... Such an enormous, detailed Finnel!!
It truly is life-sized, it's just like Finnel herself. It would be easy to ignore one's duties in the presence of such balloons.
I'm truly grateful to you for indulging me in my request. I hope you'll continue to show us the fruits of your artisanry.
I think Cocona looks the best together with Croix!
I really love these two.
I made this while thinking on a place where Assistant Instructor Cocona could "go home to".
But, I suppose she'll be at a difficult age in a few years...
Coo... I suppose your job as a parent is just beginning?
Wow, there's a lot of pictures of me and Cro this time for some reason. I'm really happy, but what happened?
Maybe it's because he had his moment in the spotlight?
Maybe the Breast Sommelier wasn't such a bad thing after all...
I wanna watch the cherry blossoms with Cro like this some time!
I'm glad Aki somehow managed to escape the poison of the Toukousphere *g* But I'm a little worried by the company she keeps (namely, Aurica) *g* When I think of "Rahoooi, Aki here!!" becoming her normal greeting... But it doesn't have any really weird vocal tics in it, so maybe it's not that...
Don't worry, I'm not that impressionable.
The greeting Aurica taught me was just for conversation practice. I wouldn't normally say that on my own.
I will continue to practice as long as people think of me as a bit difficult to talk to.
Your dedication is commendable. Well, I have my doubts about Cleansing, but clearing your own mind and settling down is a good practice.
Were there perhaps so many pictures of me because of my new position here?
I'm terribly happy, but it's a little embarrassing...
Oho... ho. April First... I missed it orz
Aww, I look forward to a second Toukousphere book.
Well, here's my picture. This time it's Saki. Huh? What do you mean I missed the deadline for the last topic, of course... not, right?
This is a general submission.
...April 1, 2010, was the day that the main character from the Ar tonelico series, Croix Bartel, took on the name Breast Sommelier and shone brighter than he ever had before.
Even someone people say never stands out can shine if they just let their true nature show.
I think that's the lesson Croix taught us all.
This is an amazing picture, but Cro might run off again somewhere if he saw this...
I'm so glad this post came in this issue.
Besides, those pictures of us behind him are kind of revealing, right? That's not allowed here, okay!?
Lady Shurelia and Jakuri's Technical Service Center
Hello, everyone, I'm Harvestasha.
I've been allowed to support the staff here in the Technical Service Center today.
I really wanted to be here with Subframey, but she said "there'll just be a bunch of weirdos again" and ran off.
I don't know how well I'll do by myself, but I hope you all enjoy it.
Well, we couldn't properly depict that scene, so they don't really disappear.
Basically, Reyvateils turn into water when they die. Reyvateil's bodies are made out of a particular type of biofluid using a Tripolar Resonance Incubator and the principle of equivalent exchange, while their Nuclear Triangular Loop is what performs that transformation and preserves the form of their bodies, so once it stops working, they turn back to the water their bodies are made out of.
Of course, it's not regular water. The details are recorded in the Ar tonelico 3 settings materials book, so please read it, okay?
Well, it's not like they didn't know how to make a Heart of the Land 700 years ago - they did.
For certain reasons the technology was transferred to the Second Tower, and then someone called Jaza took the secret files down from the Tower with them and used it as a base to create EXEC_METAFALICA/.
So, the Heart of the Land originated in the Third Tower, but before long the Antibodies appeared in the Third Tower, and as a result Kurogane Laboratories in the Tower of Origins was destroyed, so that research isn't in the modern Third Tower anymore, and most people there don't know anything about it.
There's more information about this in the Ar tonelico 3 setting materials book, too, so please have a look at it.
Hymmnos songs whose names start with "EXEC_FLIP" change the body of the
Reyvateils who sing them,
but would that mean the song that turns Mute into her muscly body is
also a FLIP song?
Why would it be "EXEC_CUTYPUMP" instead of "EXEC_FLIP_CUTYPUMP"? Please
Hee hee hee, this question must be for me.
Cutypump isn't an EXEC_FLIP song. EXEC_FLIP is a special program that can
only be executed by the βs of the Third Tower. Not much has been said
about it, but as long as you don't use the related libraries or I/O
routines, it's not EXEC_FLIP.
EXEC_FLIP is a standard method for altering the physical construction of
the body, but my Cutypump is able to achieve this as just a normal
EXEC Hymmnos. That's the
one thing I absolutely want you to understand about it!!
Even a monkey could create an effect using libraries that were built to
support it. You couldn't call that research. True research is pioneering into yet-unsupported fields!
Maybe the Technical's the right place for this question. It's about the names
of the Teru and the Necrofamilies.
The middle names of Lyra and Flute, and Harmonica and Tastiella are all the
same; a Teru's middle name indicates the clan they belong to, right?
So, if it's "First name - clan - family name", and Ayatane Kureha Kirinami's
name in the Cielian style would be Kureha Pel Kirinami, that must mean the Necrofamilies of the Third Towers' names follow the pattern "Clan - first name - family name", which means Ayatane is his clan name, correct?
Yes, that's exactly right. So, when Lyner and the others were calling him
"Ayatane", it's just like calling Jack "Hey, Los!"
They should have called him "Michitaka". Well, it looks like people have
been calling me Ayatane, too.
To put it in terms you might understand better, it's kind of like calling
someone from the capital of Japan "Hey, Tokyo!". It's not exactly the same, but
it's not that dissimilar either.
Cocona sang METHOD_HYMMELI/. because the Tower didn't have enough Symphonic
Power to fire the XP Shell. In other words, Cocona's song supplied the enormous
amount of power necessary to activate it by transferring it from Metafalica.
However, it's hard to believe that a single Reyvateil would be able to
supply that much power by herself.
My theory is that Cocona's song, and thus the IPDs who responded to her
feelings, combined their consciousness together like during Metafalica, or
perhaps Replekia, and that's how they were able to supply such a great amount
of Symphonic Power.
If so, I can't help but wonder if Lady Cloche, the IPD Queen, would have had
to play a part in it somehow, but... Just how did it work? I'd love to hear
Umm, well, naturally Lady Cloche had to acknowledge Cocona's use of that much
Symphonic Power, and Cocona had to convey her feelings to the IPDs of the
Second Tower to get their cooperation, and as a result of the IPDs' help
they were able to transmit power to the Third Tower... or, specifically,
to the Kaira units as an unknown relay device, so it's just as you had
I put a lot of attention into the feelings behind Hymmeli to help make
that process go smoothly.
Ar tonelico 3 has been out for 3 months, but amazingly, the excitement and
volume of the posts in the Toukousphere hasn't gone down at all.
This time we got over 600 posts in the past two weeks! That's 3 times as
many as our normal 200 or so; we never hit the 600 mark when Ar tonelico 2
I suppose things are loved more the longer they've been around. I hope
you'll continue to follow us from now on!
