Quick question about the game title, 異薔薇戦争 Ibara Sensō. My kanji dictionary (the New Nelson) says 薔薇 "rose" can be read bara or ibara. So just hearing the title in the CM you might expect it to be 薔薇戦争. Presumably though the I- comes from 異 "strange". Does this mean the title translation should be "Strange Rose War"? Or is 異薔薇 some sort of idiom, not to be translated literally?

*sigh* Must learn more Japanese...

Rikai-chan renders '異' as "different."
As I see it, it may even be renderable (new word ) as 'another.' "Another Rose War" sounds good to me.

異薔薇 would be pronounced "ibara", and therefore sounds like the word 茨 ibara "thorn." I think we're dealing with a pun: "other/different/strange roses" and "thorns." "The War with the Other Roses (who are like thorns)."

Novel & Manga questions

In a way, I think that is about as perfect a description of the finale as you can get. This show made me feel a lot of emotion that I don't think I can ever properly put into words...as though any words I could come up with would be a disservice or misrepresentation. We can and will discuss what we think happened to all of the characters, but in the end I think the feelings are more important than irrefutable knowledge.

I wanted more of these characters so I went and threw some money at the Simoun manga compilation from Yuri Hime that just came out. I was disappointed to find out that the two manga stories won't be anywhere near as involved a storyline (and that the first is so short!). On the flip side, it will be nice to see these characters in some less bittersweet situations, as long as their personalities are mostly the same.

Does anyone know how long the second manga will run in Megami Magazine? Is it just a short run like the one in Yuri Hime?

The novel: Anyone know if this is this a pure adaptation of the anime, or is the story retold in a different way?

========

Edit: a couple free OP gifs

Spoiler for About DomiLimo and the past world:


So now, can I assume that Aeru's red eye is a bug? Is that episode out on DVD? If so, can someone confirm if she still has that red eye in the DVD?

I also noticed something from 2ch. It seems that Anubituf's nickname is Tofu, and Morinas' nickname is 茄子 (nasu), which means eggplant. Haha...I guess it's because of the the last syllable.

The red eye is an artistic effect to express a certain state of mind. Other characters get red eyes in some scenes too.

I agree that the red eye in ep4 was there as an artistic effect to express Aaeru's state of mind, but I can't remember other examples. Can anyone remember where else it happened?

By the way, I watched wowo's subs of ep26 with Freelance's good raw last night, and I can say two things: one, that raw is clearly better than the previous one (or the other one I got myself); two, the episode, like the series, gets better the more I watch it. I've seen this ep about five times now, lol.

Also, a couple of new images from AS's website, one of Sibylla Tofu (Anubituf as a Sibylla), and one of Aaeru and Furoe (I'll put it in a spoiler, since it's a slight spoiler for ep25/26):

Spoiler for ep25-6:
I can't quite understand all of what AS says just under this last pic on the front page of her website, but it looks very interesting. If someone could translate it, I'd really appreciate it.

I mean, I think Anubituf is pretty good-looking for a guy, but Anubitu is like... wow.
Why? Why couldn't she have stayed that way?

I think it's legitimate for me to tell people that there is now a torrent on tokyotosho of Niino Michi's appearance on Takahashi Mikako's radio show (Mikako@PayoPayo). It was online in June. This week's guest is Morinaga Rika (Mamiina). The link to the audio of the current show is near the bottom of the Mikako@PayoPayo page.

Spoiler for red eye:


Well, maybe that is a too radical interpretation but that's just my theory about her odd eye.

Oh, by the way, i just joined this site.
Guess it will take me days to read this whole thread from the very beginning, but i'm GLAD that I still have sth to do with Simoun. Haha

"Somewhere I could have chosen other than here.
However, I'm standing here, accepting my life.

The place, where everyone lives, where I could have stayed.
However, I, with the one whom I love, fly away toward the dream from my childhood,
leaving everything behind.


Shoujo does not last forever. A boy lose his freedom, forced to fight.
You(anata) are, You(kimi) are, another possibility. Did not choose. Another opportunity.
The eternal love which neither get touched nor fade away.
Of mine, living in a reality, and of the girl, living in a dream.
However, that is never unhappy. That is the dearest and the sweatest memory.."


I guess the blue one is waht Froe(Frof) says and the red one is what Aeru says and the black one is told by both of them.
It is TRULY INTERESTING dialogue between two. It is right to the theme of Simoun.

I'm not really sure about my translation...
so anyone please correct me if i am wrong.

Ugh.... I just finished the series. I'm not gonna say anything to spoil it, but man, I swear anime series never quiet end exactly the way you want them to.

This one was actually (kinda) alright (it certainly didn’t end like Chrono Crusade or Last Exile). But I just feel like they could of added more onto it. It's like, they didn’t exhausted all the material in the story line down to the very last drop.

Spoiler for what I wanted to see:

I'm still trying to work out precisely what my reaction to the end of this series is, but I think I'm at least coming to understand the why.

It's really just a light gag, so I'd be surprised if it continues much longer now the anime is over. The third installment in volume 77 (October) didn't have "The End" plastered over it, so when the November issue comes out this Saturday we may see another one.

Of more interest is that they're still publishing their "Sybilla Fanclub" column (rough sketches and little bits of info about the show - a few *cough* scans have turned up here). It's dropped down to a single page, so maybe it too is about to fade out.

Can't help you here, sorry - I have a copy, but I'm a long way off being able to read it...
