Why did Kagun have to bite it in this Volume? He would've made an awesome broteam with Accelerator and WORST.

I hope he can resurrected, and normally I'm all for a dead character staying dead and despise Deus Ex Resurrection. But Kagun-Accel-WORST threesome of awesome is something that needs to happen.

^ welcome to the club ... now I remember a certain person Chaos warned us not to get attached too much, we'll remember this volume as the volume where Kamachi went Tomino/urobuchi for a few pages >.>

Hmm ... interesting, I haven't read the Zaregoto series but it sounds good to me :3.

I'm just afraid, while making tributes here and there, Kamachi will try to pull off a Katanagatari ending somewhere in the future though ^^"

Oh dear, now you mentioned it. Again, knowing Kazuma, the possibility is certainly there. And we might even think it is something good when it actually happens.

Wow, I didn't expect anyone to remember that

Rather than attack the city outright, the 27 Anti-AC force wants to weaken them further....


I want to say Nayuta's in it, but she's not exactly trained to fight against magicians... Heck she's not very experienced at this kind of life. And with Telestina in jail (hopefully still there) and Gensei in the wind, maybe we'll get three new characters for both side?

Don't get too attached though cause I'm sure most of them are going to die.

I don't want Kihara Kagun to die. He is too cool for that. It would be a waste of a badass character but I guess him dying is inevitable based on the situation he is in.

Now THAT would be awesome in its own way.

So right, and we'll even be pretty energetic while discussing about it

Before I start on work in 2 hours, someone please help me search for this sword'. "ヴィーティング" Has the effect of splitting.

...Or else I'm going to come up with some random named sword...

From just the word, it's probably Witting. I do need more of the context in which it's portrayed in.

You have the novel, right? Page 341, Kihara Kagun's sword. It's more of a terminology thing than a grammatical thing here...

I don't have the novel, hence why I'm asking. However, given that Kagun's teacher was Marian, it's likely that we would be using something Germanic, of which Witting fits the description.

Bingo. It's the Whitting from the Kormáks saga. Here's the quote:
Quote:
Now, Bersi owned the sword they call Whitting; a sharp sword it was, with a life-stone to it; and that sword he had carried in many a fray.
The sole difference between Witting and Whitting is German and Icelandic, and even then it's probably a Romanization problem. The original Icelandic name is Hvítingur (white horse).

I only read Monogatari but do you mean his description style?


Or the infamous "plot advancement by tragic deaths" Katanagatari style?

More and more I'm thinking there will be lots of censoring and cuttings when this is animated.

Zaregoto was made into english audience so I was able to read the novel but katanagatari wasn't. It will be a good read but still tragic ending.

Touma vs index for the ending >.>
