Split Personalities in battle is nothing new... It's been going on ever since Yugi picked up a golden pyramid and thought it looked bink.


(Before you old schools say anything- yes I'm certain that isn't the earliest)

Just wanted to know but, remember in vol 6 or 7 how it was stated in china that there was no prohibition for alcohol depending on age in china. That's not based on a true fact, is it?

The legal drinking age in China is 18, it was introduced in 2006.

HnA vol 6 and 7 were published in 2010 though it's likely the author had this planned earlier.

Maybe, who knows. She did she never did "that" kind of stuff with Kinji's brother.
On that now that I think about has Kinji's brother never acknowledge that they any more them just a senpai and kohai relationship) ?
Riko does has in a while called Kinji her BF (Of course she is/was lying ), so maybe she was lying about him ever being her (Kinji's brother) BF.

Spoiler for Ch3-4:

Again, this volume thus far has been a huge disappointment. If this gets any worse I'm almost considering dropping this series...

Reading all of that pisses me off as much as a Kawahara NTR scene with the words "NOT THIS SHIT AGAIN" highlighted in bold for emphasis.

And that is referring to both sets of spoilers.

Somebody please tell me the Japanese readers are just as annoyed by this As I am...

Just wondering, but in vol 12 it's mentioned that G3 is in Kinji's house right? Any ideas on what happened to his subordinates?

That was in Vol11. His subordinates are a phone call away though, as shown in Vol12 when one of them came down with a military stealth helicoptor when G3 was wounded.

IIRC, the light novels have "decent" sales. I have to wonder what those people see in Hidan no Aria.

Maybe it's the lolis? Fanservice? Whatever else that sells LNs in Japan? (I honestly don't have a clue here, just guessing)

If they are only in it for the lolis and fanservice, they should have resorted to the more-illustrated doujins.

I dunno, I just feel like poorly-crafted worlds in a story in light novel format (my standard is based on Toaru Majutsu no Index, if it's not obvious) are much better off as a manga series. It's just showing how amateur (or otherwise poorly planned) some light novel authors are.

And they are mere specks of dust compared to Kawakami, Kamachi and NisioisiN.

It has 30k+ sold per volume's opening day, I would say that's a bit more than 'decent'.

But that's not the same as being 'happy customers', what does the interweb say?

HnA fails horribly compared to plenty of manga....

It's better off as an internet fic-style web novel...

I dunno at the side of the "elevens", but 4chan has some really bad impressions of Hidan no Aria, the anime:

• "Even people with bad taste hate this."
• "Hopefully never. Oh my *expletive* god, it was so awful. gg's literal translation at least made it somewhat funny."
• "Considering the bullshit that is the novels? *Expletive* no, let it die. "
"But... traps..."
"But but stupid *expletive* time paradoxes and long dead people still living for bullshit reasons"
• [There's also a correlation between enjoying Hidan no Aria and enjoying Guilty Crown, another hated-with-a-passion series]
• "you can't even troll about this, it was *expletive* awful"

The HnA novel thread on 2ch is rather civil since posters there are mainly fans discussing aspects of the setting or characters...

Here's the anti-thread

http://ikura.2ch.net/test/read.cgi/anime2/1310827290/


Mainly anime related but there's some posts lamenting the failed fantasy mess the novel has become...
