Starting this issue, we'll be running the "King Game" for a while!!
This is an event where the characters will actually do the things from the "King Game" posts we got during the special "Fifth Week Celebration" at the end of July .
When we took your posts on orders, we also ran a poll to see which character lineup was most popular, so we'll start by letting you the results.
I don't understand what you're saying!!
I can't believe I was picked to drink a bowl of this torture stew in one go with someone who can't speak human language...
If I had an expression icon for "crying", I'm sure they'd be using that one right now.
I know it's odd for the person who made it to say this, but don't you think you'd better down it all while it's still hot?
The soup part will turn into gelatin if it cools, so you'd have to suck it out of a spoon to finish it.
And for some reason it'll be kinda crunchy, too, so eat it all up before that happens.
Don't worry, this is a healing item, so it shouldn't do anything bad to you!!
Well, since it's an MP recovery item, people without any MP won't be able to eat it that easily.
I'm sure they wouldn't have a problem eating it if they could just convert the MP recovery into love for Milady like me, though.
26 lets 42 "do whatever they want" to them (Tsuuren)
Let's see, #26 is Milady, and... I get to do whatever I want...
...if God appeared before me right now, I'd hug him and kiss him and give my thanks over and over.
Oh, but I guess I should give Milady a kiss first, right?
Pssh, no, just kidding.
I couldn't steal Milady's lips in a situation like this.
Y-yeah, that's right... thank goodness, I'm so relieved.
So instead I'll hug her close and touch her cute little bottom!!
I don't bear a whit of malice towards you.
Besides, what I said earlier, that I think you're a fine young man, was the truth.
I'm simply confessing my true feelings to you, so please don't read too much into it.
O-okay, well, what do you think of me as a romantic object, then?
...this is somewhat difficult for me to say, but, well, you don't exactly fall into that category.
After all, you're extremely close to Lady Tyria, who we, the Church of El Elemia, worship as one of the Trio of Elemia.
It would be inexcusable to think of someone so amazing as a romantic object.
Still, if I may be permitted to speak my mind, I do wish you could act in a somewhat less perverted manner.
...hey, am I such a pervert that everyone has to call me one?
Well, compared to the other main characters, yes.
But, compared to any normal young boy your age, you're probably pretty normal... no, considering you got the heroines to strip in the inns, you're pretty abnormal.
...I guess I'd better watch it from now on, huh.
Ah, but it's so difficult for young men your age to do that.
52 uses #44 for Maximum Penetratiooooonnnn!!
T-this is a King Game, so I have to do it... but how?
I'll leave the method selection to you.
I'm quite solid and difficult to break, so please choose any penetration method you wish.
However, it seems you don't have any weapons, so would you like to borrow one from someone?
...I-I'll be fine empty-handed... weapons are a little scary...
Well, then, here I go... yaaaa!!
What's the matter? Please feel free to Maximum Penetrate me; no need to hold back.
N-no, it won't do to waste food!!
Don't worry, you did your best to make me this rice omelette, Sis Clo, so of course I'll eat it.
Besides, since it's a rice omelette, I'm sure I'll be able to eat it if I just pour lots of ketchup on top!!
Hey, how d'you think I feel as someone who's not a moe character to have at least three moe things about me pointed out!?
You're not the only one who's suffering, here, so let's just get on with it, 'cause it's embarrasing.
That's because BBQ Soda is made out of a gel called Droopy Soda.
The hole in this straw is too little, so nothing's gonna happen if you don't suck on it hard.
So, come on, you two, suck with all your might!!
They probably just can't accept that they can't suck up the soda, you know?
There's something nice about watching a couple of guys so focused on trying to drink through a straw with their faces so close, though, don't you think?
N-no, if you're gonna do that, I... C-Croix, you meanie!!
It feels like my face is gonna catch fire... s-sorry, please, put me down!!
I-if Croix keeps holding me and looking at me like this, I... I don't think I'm going to want him to let go...
And so we'll end here with this glimpse of Senpai's cute side.
We'll continue in the next Toukousphere.
I bet everyone's gonna send in a question like this, but Luca said at the end of Infel Breeze last time that this issue is just going to be the three of you, but I bet in the end you're going to naturally forget about Croix... right?
Since we have the experience from running the Web radio, I don't believe we would have any problems, but don't you think it could be so much more exciting with three people than with two?
So, we decided to bring him along.
Haaa... And I was hoping I'd finally get to take a break.
I finally got an electric fan for my room the other day.
That simple thing really made it a lot cooler, so when I told my friends, "Fans are really amazing!", they all said, "ACs are the modern thing"...
There are lots of places that don't have room for external appliances, and you can just plug a fan right in, so I bet a lot more people buy them than AC units.
Besides, look, they started selling these fants that don't have any fan blades.
Oh, but I guess you can't play alien voices using one of those, huh?
...that's not how you're supposed to use a fan, right?
I got food poisoning for the first time ever this year...
Aoto, that raw meat is dangerous! Don't eat it, no matter what.
I had diarrhea, vomiting, and a 40 degree fever for two days; it was awful.
Look, just don't eat it, okay? Promise your uncle, okay?
Honestly, I'd like to hear how you came to be eating raw meat in the first place.
I've definitely heard you're more likely to get a bacterial infection from raw meat that hasn't gone through a flame.
You're not guaranteed to hurt your stomach or get yourself sick, but it's best to eat meat that's been thoroughly cooked to avoid that danger, okay?
Lady Cloche! Lady Cloche!! I've been secretly trailing your friend, Lady Cocona.
And just the other day I heard that Aoto called Baldgo "that bald frog".
And on top of that he said it was all "for huge stuffed animal nerds"... I was just about ready to sock him one right there.
Don't you think that makes him an enemy of all Gerko fans in Metafalss, or at least, of you, Lady Cloche?
I'd like to help you out directly somehow, but I'm afraid I can't work in the spotlight, Lady Cloche!
Please, I beg of you, find a way to visit the wrath of justice upon him!!
(Lady Cloche Fan Club Spy Department)
I think I'd be well advised to visit the wrath of justice upon someone who's been stalking Cocona first.
Everyone's heard that story at least once when they were a kid.
Each of the moons has its own Pepen country, and they both worked really hard to prevent a crisis when it looked like the moons were going to go out of their orbits and collide.
It's a fairy tale for kids, but it's a serial story with really heart-racing developments, so it's still fun to read.
The Pepen countries started out hating each other, but they joined forces to work together and keep the moons from colliding; I remember crying so many times when I've read that story.
It's a wonderful fairy tale that I hope is left to future generations.
Yes, that certainly is the sort of tale that's worth leaving to future generations.
All the characters are Pepens, but since the story is a hot-blooded tale of manly friendship, I always thought it was really cool.
No, it's pretty cool.
Aren't there lots of cool scenes? Like the one where the Pepen who gave up his life to change the moon's orbit was saved in the end when all his friends worked together to help him?
But it came out too late!!
I've been waiting for this ever since AT2 first came out.
And they finally release it half a year after AT3?
They came out with a Nyamo almost right away! It's a slight to Gergo!!
...Cloche-sama's always said she's been waiting for them to come out with a Gergo plushie.
It's true they made Gergo wait a long time, but I guess I can't blame her for being mad about the Nyamo plushie.
O-of course giving me something like that now isn't going to make me feel better!
...b-but, that Gergo plushie hasn't done anything wrong, no, it's the victim here.
See, can't you hear what it's saying?
He's saying, I know you wanted to see me all this time, but I'm sorry we couldn't meet sooner.
S-so, I'll accept this Gergo plushie.
Now, please hand it over, can't you hear him saying he wants me to hug him?
...well, I can hear your heart saying it's not a second too soon to hug that plushie.
Make sure you all get your hands on this plushie that's melted Lady Cloche's heart, too!!
Lately "edible Ra oil" has been all the rage, but is Ra oil something you can eat in the first place??
Well, I guess technically it's a seasoning, so I guess you could call it food, but we're all really curious how you'd handle Ra oil.
Maybe paint it over his thinning scalp?
Or maybe not.
We used a lot during item synthesis at Soraneko's place.
...... as far as I know, I've never seen Ra oil mentioned on a recipe card even once.
Yeah, it's a secret ingredient!!
How would you know about that if you say you don't like cooking!?
Hello, Misha here.
This is the corner where we use your posts as a starting point to answer the questions everyone wants answered.
We've collected a lot of very interesting data this time. Let's have a look.
What would make an interesting corner? 1st: Jakuri and Saki's Super Plot Development Delusion Stories - 174 votes 2nd: Insensitivity King Lyner and Mature Croix's Love Consultation Corner - 126 votes 3rd: Kusofure-sama, Please Abuse Me! corner - 44 votes
Oh, what a wonderful saying. After all, most of Jakuri's highly imaginative short stories were written while she was shut up in the Binary Field ... in other words, when she was asleep, so that's quite on the mark.
I know, let's call it: Jakuri's "Let's Sleep-Talk While We're Asleep♪". What do you think?
You ...... you'd better start watching your back at night.
So, here are the two questions for next time.
Make sure you vote.
Who's the AT character you'd never be able to beat if they were a last boss? (Maroya)

Hama's Submission Dojo
Let's all have another fun submissions dojoooooo!!
The theme this time is Ar tonelico 3, so it has deep ties to Cocona and I.
Yeah, I was surprised there were so many pictures of Aoto, too. Okay, our theme for next time is the "4 year anniversary"! Anyone who posts something following the theme will get a warm welcome, so make sure you send us something! Make sure you put "Theme post '4th anniversary'" in your post title.
This is a theme post for "Ar tonelico 3".
There's really one thing I have to say about my favorite characters from 3.
SD style really works for Saki, and I thought Aoto would be really cute if I tried it with him, too, but he ended up looking like the local brats' ringleader.
This SD art makes me think I'd love seeing some sprite work of the 3 characters like 1 and 2 had.
This is a theme post for "Ar tonelico 3".
Aoto's drill is a real manly one-hit assaaauulltt!!
But actually I just started 3 so I haven't seen the super ultimate move scenes. (^^;)
I'm training on the Blue Canyon Trail and in the cave to up my levels... so I'm fighting a ton of poms and wolfs （-人-）
Hey! That's pretty cool!
It looks like I'm rising in the tide of public opinion! Wait, have I ever gotten this many pictures before? Croix always has so many, but I hardly ever get posts... don't tell me I'm...
"This is a theme post for "Ar tonelico 3""
The 4 year anniversary is going on, so I decided to post.
There aren't very many pair shots of Aoto and Finnel, so .... TT
Those shooting stars during the Starcircling scene. Actually, Aoto was using "Bottled-up Shooting Stars" to make things work better with Finnel.
(It would be cool if the next DLC had a side-scroll action game where Akane goes to rescue Finnel ... I cling to the hope that it wouldn't be hard if you reused the 3D models ... )
Thank you. It's been a while since I got any pictures, so I'm happy to see this.
By the way, have you all cleared the Binary World yet?
If you have ...... th-that's too embarrassing, so you're going to hell!
( ... suddenly, I've got deja vu for some reason.)
This is my first post.
I really love jokes, so ever since Her Highness started using Twitter I've loved seeing her announce all those gags about Funboon (n.b.: Obonnu + the Obon festival) and Pepens (with Ruupe (n.b.: don't remember that one ... )).
However, she always says they're "cold" and "have no real twist to them" and never shows any sign of laughing.
So, I'd like to seek some assistance from Professor Infel! Won't you tell me a really amazing joke that will have Her Highness in stitches from laughter? I can't back down now! Please help me!!
Since someone asked for her by name, we've brought Infel with us!
Since it's Obon and there's a pen, it's Funboon and a Pepen ... ?
Well, that's not a bad development. It's definitely impressive that you made a picture of it and didn't just write it out.
But, well ... Getting Harvestasha to laugh is an awfully tall order, don't you think? I don't think she'll laugh if it's not so overwhelming she doesn't just burst out right away.
I can't give you any concrete examples. I've given you my advice, so now figure out the rest on your own.
I've played the Ar tonelico series since 1, and now I've finished it with 3 (though I hope for a sequal ^-^). .. 感慨深い物がありますネ。
Here's a Misha I ended up drawing when I went back to the beginning and listened to Hoshiyomi.
As I was listening to this song, I couldn't help but wonder what sort of song the girl called Misha would sing if you told her, "Here, try singing something."
Hama, would you mind letting us listen?
... just kidding (*^-^*)
Please find attached a notice of a new product from YYY Confectionaries, Inc. Its name is "Japanese Funbun Shortbread". This is what it would have been like if Funbuns had originally been made like shortbread!! The whole world is swept up in the rumor that it will be available in the Gust Shop soon! Well, what do you think? *g*
I bet Misha would eat Funbun shortbread!!
I played Ar tonelico 2 for the first time in a while, so I wanted to draw Assault Pain Luca.
It's too bad I couldn't have her wear it alongside Lady Cloche's Victim Pain in the game~ I guess there are a lot of adult reasons why ... ?
Saying it alone makes me feel like a crappy solitary actor.
Plus, the title call for this section has been so energetic lately, so doing it alone is as lonely as standing alone on a stage after the play is finished.
... well, that's not so bad in its own way.
Don't worry, we'll all be around to do the answers.
Maybe it's kind of late to be asking this, but who gave Misha her name (彌紗)? Was it Lady Shurelia, or the previous Star Singer?
Also, sorry if this has been covered before, but did the previous Lune Revateils all have Cluster-style names?
Yes, I gave Misha her name. I didn't do it alone, though.
I decide each Star Singer's name together with the Commander and the other directors. It's not unlike Japan's era names, like "Heisei".
Also, not all the previous Star Singers had Cluster-style names. Sometimes their names and appearance are Ciel-style, and sometimes they're Cluster-style.
There aren't any particular rules governing it.
To celebrate her return to the TC, I'd like to ask Lady Jakuri a question ... but this time I have a question for Lady Tyria.
What parts of the Third Tower were created when Tyria turned into the Tower?
The parts above Archia look just like Tyria wearing her Linkage, so I can guess that's it, but there are parts that were around since she was human, like Module Harvestasha (Vista), and parts that were built after she made the transformation, so I'd love to hear some details.
This question was going to go to Jakuri, but you crushed that chance with your own hands.
In any case, which part of the Tower did I turn into, right? The correct answer is "basically all of it". Clustania was built later, so that's not me. But, Module Harvestasha VISTA is me.
Strictly speaking, it's a Mainframe constructed using me as its basic components. So, the plans exist in my SH Server, and the actual facility is constructed from D-Wave materials.
But, since Module Harvestasha VISTA uses machines that are constructed from my body, the Tower, its construction is incredibly complex.
I've been wondering this ever since 1, but what, specifically, does "Reyvateil nature" and "human nature" refer to?
Since only people with the human nature can dive, I get the idea that it refers to some individual mental or spiritual trait, but since Diquility has physical effects on their bodies and other things can have dynamic transformational effects you'd think there's some physical element to it, and since the Reyvateil nature can exist like a virus (kind of like a viroid?) according to the setting materials collection, I'd imagine there's some sort of genetic "information" nature to it as well.
It's hard to make a decision about it based on what I know.
Human nature and Reyvateil nature are simply terms we use to make things easier to understand, and it doesn't refer to any specific function or facility.
There's one thing you can say in a general sense, which is that the human nature refers to the physical human body constructed from dynamic D-waves, and that the Reyvateil nature refers to the Reyvateil prime field transmitted by the Nuclear Triangular Loop. But, it's not really the matter itself that's important, more the energy, or the potential that drives it.
To put it simply using our world's terms, it boils down to the characteristic phenomena born primarily from D-H interference patterns. There isn't really a similar concept in modern Earth physics, so it's not that easy to explain.
Does Ar Ciel have any ghost stories or other scary stories? Do people talk about the world 700 years ago matter-of-factly? Or do each of the Towers have their own take on things that's been passed down over time? In either case, there have to be some stories about Lady Shurelia.
Of course there are!
I've been watching this world for a long, long time, so she knows all about its stories and legends. There were a lot more legends and traditions during the First Era than there are now, and some of them were ghost stories.
A lot of those stories have been forgotten by now, so not all of them are handed down, but some of them are still told today.
There are also a lot of stories that started being told after the age of the towers began.
It's always hard being in the middle, whether it's siblings or something else, right, Lady Frelia?
So, I have a question for you; they said last time Lady Frelia was the only one who had a real mind,
so can you Dive into other Reyvateils?
Umm, I can't do Dives. Pureblooded βs and Origins can't be Divers, so while it's true I'm the Origin that's most like a Pureblooded β, that's all there is to it.
But, it looks like people can Dive into me. However, since the servers used as storage are so different, I don't think modern Dive Machines can access my Cosmosphere.
Yep! After all, we have telemo, so we have recorders, too. There's everything from big machines like jukeboxes to little pendant-sized devices.
The little devices are usually called Teleon. They're not round like a CD or DVD, but they're what you might call an "IC recorder" in your world.
I've even had a few of my songs recorded and released for teleon.
That was kind of ordinary, but there were a lot of nice, straightforward answers.
Huh, was my title call just ... ordinary?
... well, I'm sure next issue's will be more showy, and I guess it's okay to leave things here this time as a low-water mark.
August, the month of the 4th anniversary, only has 10 more days left. Also, the Niconico character broadcasts run this week and next, and the presents and Twitter events are still running, so the second half of the month is pretty exciting!
This is the first time we've had a memorial event that's run for an entire month. We'd hoped to run our last big event, the 2nd anniversary festival, for a month, too, but that really only ended up bing a simple notice, so this is the first time we've had an event where we're continuously doing new things and releasing new information for a whole month.
We were afraid it would get boring after a while, but it looks like things are still heating up. Well, in any case, today we have another Niconico character broadcast. I hope you'll all come watch it! (Tsuchiya)
