Well, but does that mean that

Spoiler for Manga:


And why so many user on that board refer to the mangaka as a female saying that it is another shoujo-istic stuff (concurrence between old-bofriend and new one, so the heroine can enjoy the reverse harem). I thought the author was supposed to be male.

Wow... many of those guys are quite sad. I guess those are otakus for you.

Anyway, how does the fact she used to have a boyfriend ultimately translate into her being "used"?

I don't know what to say. Don't quite understand how their brains work.

@ Darknemo2000
I remember what you said about greek gods. You are right. They are doing such things all the time. Only two goddess among many are virgins (Athena and Artemis).

In Japanese mythological culture (the smaller goddess) are bit more strick about the whole virginity issue as being a virgin means being pure and innocent.

In real life in our old religion (lithuanian one) we had the vaidilutes virgins who protected the saint fire and saint woods. If one would loose virginity she could not be protecting it.

Spoiler for stuff:


Some of their reactions were really funny. Some even decided to drop Kannagi because of that. Funny. But with otakus it can become a serious issue - ask JC Staff and their production of Kimikiss anime what it means to piss off otaku's. They are weird, scary people I tell you.

Don't worry guys she's not a whore or 2nd hand as long she stays with her old/first boyfriend, Jin still gets a happy ending he still has two other girls (Tsugumi, Zange) as backup.

But then Jin would be heartbroken since it seems he likes Nagi more than Tsugumi or Zange.

I'm sure both Tsugumi and Zange are able to come up with a way to cheer him up... both seem to be quite willing to please him. A combo "attack" on him will be more than enough.

Happy ending? I'd like to remind you guys, the author has worked with Type-Moon for a long time, there is no guarantee that she won't pull a Type-Moon style ending to sadden fans.

Make Jin happy? Hakua may, but I don't think Zange gives much a damn about him when Nagi is gone.

So is the author a female or male? I am confused.

Wow, that thread is scary, such a huge backlash.

But anyways, from what I can see, if it matters...

Spoiler for thoughts about her "pureness":


Also, I think you guys are getting ahead of yourselves.

Spoiler for more conjecture:


@herbert

I don't think you can really compare Type-Moon stuff and this. Visual novels are aimed at a completely different demographic.

Jin fans can still hope.

It reminds me a lot about some fans of another Nagi from Hayate the Combat Butler.


@ Darknemo2000

The author is a female.

Hasn't she only done Take-Moon and nothing else? That wouldn't really make her part of the TYPE-Moon staff.

Anyway, TYPE-Moon's works are a Happy Ending-fest.

Looking at the pictures posted on that thread it looks like Jin is the one just imagining that Nagi may have had a physical relationship. Don't think that may have happened both Nagi and the guy being gods probably had a um "pure" relationship nothing physical.

Anyways this whole virgin or not thing reminds me of a recent J-Drama I saw called Ryuusei no Kizuna. In one scene it had the main characters in a Maid Coffee restaurant where a bunch of Otakus where. One of the main characters said to her brother that she's not a virgin anymore causing her brother and the Otaku's who were listening to the conversation to get depress and walking away with their heads down disappointed. She then said that she was lying though causing her brother and the other Otaku's to get happy again, with the otaku's being interested in her again.

From Jp Wikipedia
主にTYPE-MOON作品などで、二次創作活動を行い、『月姫』や、『Fate/stay night』等の公式アンソロジーコミックで活躍。奈須きのこ本人からも評価を受け、実際に『Fate/hollow ataraxia』でもゲストとして参加するまでとなる。TYPE-MOONだけではなく、初期にはLeaf作品その他のアンソロジーコミックにも執筆している
Even some endings are said to be happy endings, they are still a lot of tragic elements mixed in.

But, yeah, looking at the list, it is really better than I thought, perhaps it's because my fav's. are Akiha, Toko and Fujino. I got my impression mostly based on them.

Edit: forget to quote this.

I see, she does have some connection to TYPE-Moon, but all she does are anthology books.

Well, yes, but Happy Endings in which everything was perfect are a bit boring, don't you think?
