Just had a random thought, in regards to the Ange/Featherine/Hachijo/whatevernameweareusingforthosepeoplenow, doesn't that kind of remind people of JT LeRoy? It's probably just a coincidence, but...

I love how Will is taking out his sword while staring at the wall. I know it's supposed to be a standard badass pose but to me it just seems like he got super drunk and is staring at the wall being...

To me, it felt more like it was one of those ice creams that have more than one taste. At first, the fantasy was like hot chocolate on top of the vanilla mystery. We knew there was both hot chocolate...

That's...not the issue. The issue is that Yasu is portrayed as a sympathetic character who killed out of believing she did the right thing. Killing someone because he was a witness is selfish. There...

Oh I agree that it comes down to madness. I just think that the author's interpretation of madness is very closely linked to "madly in love." I think he wants us to think that Yasu was driven to a...

As for motive, that's a topic I'm not looking forward to, because while I reached my own conclusion, I don't like my conclusion and I hope to God I'm wrong.

This is my understanding of "Yasu's...

While I'm totally cool(and actually excited) with getting an answer, I have a strange feeling this will be as disappointing as the sequel to "Mysterious Card" by Moffet.

That said, I think it...

Oh, that makes more sense than what I first thought when I read your post.

I'm not sure what you are saying here. Are you saying that people who want a murder to happen in a murder mystery are terrible people?

Oh I respect the idea of trying to write a mystery that doesn't rely on the detective as well. It was a nice experiment, even if the result didn't turn out to be exactly what I wanted. Still, I think...

I don't think red is subjective to Beatrice's subjective whims. I think red is subjective to Ryuukishi's subjective whims.

As for the escapism...I'll put it simply:

The way I see it, the problem with red truth came from the fact the author tried to highlight red truth the same way a regular writer highlights his detective's phrases.

Now, we can rely on what...

That does seem a bit strange. Would it be in bad taste to venture a guess that perhaps he wrote a bit of himself when considering Yasu's sexual confusion? I'm an English major, so forgive me for this...

I got it. His editor is actually his second personality. See, it still counts as another person reading his work because they have different names. (The joke sounded much funnier in my head)

This would make a lot of sense actually. Well, mostly thematic sense mind you, but I think it would fit the story well.
