For me, I never changed the metaphors. Don't ask me what the other translators do though

I don't remember the part, but it was Vol. 1, Ch. 4, if that helps.

I called dips; I'm already preparing a similar scene as one of the insane mindscrews that Accelerator encounters in [Original Sin].

I've been wondering:

Also, it was said that the Right hand of ‘the one who is like God’ (Michael) is the strongest weapon in history, having buried a large number of Fallen Angels, and even ‘the one who challenged the Light’ (Lucifer) was slain by him. It was such an overwhelming power.”

Quote:
“Thanks to this, the queen regnant can even now possess the same type of power as Michael, the leader of the angels, so long as she holds the Curtana and is within the country,”
Do those statements mean Fiamma is capable of doing the same things as the wielder of Curtana Original, and vice versa?

I'm pretty sure that the original only used "ripping out the flesh"

In the original they use 犯される -> 犯す (okasu), which could go for "to rape" "to ravish" "to commit crimes" ... Looking it up, it can also go by something like "to transgress" and "to contravene" , but those doesn't seem to be popular uses.

I take it that both the Curtana & the Holy Right are meant to imitate Michael, just that in different manners and with different "levels of perfection"

QUESTION

I was rereading NT in BT. But I noticed something

Quote:
“She has an aura like my little sister,” muttered the girl as she pointed at Fremea. She then looked over at Hamazura and Accelerator who had heard what Kamijou had said.
Isn't Fremea the little sister of Frenda? so why does Fremea used little sister when she is referring probably to Frenda being alike to Bardway.

ah so it's the other way around. Because I thought that it's fremea think bardway was like frenda. But it also plausible because of patricia's status in the magic side can be considered the same as fremea.

It seems the name of the 5th level 5 is finally revealed in the railgun manga. Not sure whether it's her family or first name though XD.

Just caught up with Vol 17, pretty damn action pack

Btw, does anyone else get the feeling that as you read the novels, you're also mentally doing the storyboard for the anime as well ?

"Oh that's too long a exposition, needs to cut out bits and streamline it..."

"Hmm, the description seem long, but this action scene is actually pretty short..."

"That's an unnecessary red herring, best to replace it with something more relevant..."

I'm guessing it's her family name; those Tokiwadai girls are too respectful to call them by their first name...
