So tempted to read spoilers...but I'll hold myself back for now. I'd rather just be given some insight on the scale of the battles and how the characters are handled for now. By that, I mean I'd just like to know various opinions on the work from people who have read it.

Oh, it would also be cool if a bunch of BT translators got together and started a project to translate the novels. It would have to be like...every active translator for it to work though lol.

Are Asama Tomo and Kimi really a yuri couple or is this just speculation?.
More than a speculation it's more like a wish that I have? lol

Sorry for this misunderstanding

Let's see, the main characters, the ones that are the most important to the story (or in a specific volume) always have a decent (?) screentime and development. The bad thing is that because of the huge cast (each new volume has at least 20+ new characters), we will always have some characters that "dissapear" for a while and consequently don't have development. It's just that the scale is a "little" bigger than other series.

Even so I think that it does have a nice development in the bigger picture.

It's difficult to say how big is the scale of the battles, but if you want to have an idea:

The story of Horizon's abduction in the Part I reminds me of Rukia's abduction during Soul Society arc from Bleach.

A teaser page was created on the B-T.

Just read if you really don't care about spoilers, because it's really a heavy one for the first season of the anime. It's one of my favorite scenes too. And try to guess who was the crazy one that tried to translate that

When does Yoshitsune show up again?

Nm, according to this wiki page, she shows up 3rd volume (or 5th book) ...

:HMM:, I bet most forgot this loli from the first PV lol.



Spoiler for Book version:


I'm pretty confident this is just a cameo appearance, which makes me really think the shortness of season 1 is just a testing ground cause they are planning pretty far ... (as usual I probably am looking too much into this).

guys, you need to give rep to Allen, start groveling and thanking him and saying how awesome the translation was and ask him to do a little bit more, ie. if you all want more.

I forgot her for a lot of time too ww. And this isn't the only cameo reference of her. If you pay attention to the eroge that Toori has in the second PV (and in a scan), you'll see her too.

ちょんまげ~

Yes, the summary was just for the first volume (first season of the anime).

Spoiler for Toori:

Well, i am kind of disappointed with the first episode, i was expecting something like code geass, durarara, steins, darker than black and what i saw was a normal echii with tons of weird and weak characters.(Almost closed my media player when i saw the black "thing" trying to hit the teacher with food , or even worse the archer woman who took 5 minutos to shoot an arrow)

I will watch more 2 or 3 episodes to make sure what this "thing" is about, but my first impression couldn't be worse.

what was Toori's ability? in the op. Something came out on his back and to me it looks like a missile then electric currents erupts.

I think you posted on the wrong thread... If it's about the anime you should post here.

I want to give a big thanks to Allen for the translation! It helped a lot when the hype started to kick in. I doesnt care about spoilers, everything will be fresh and new when presented in anime form. The information serves to raise my interest on the show, and to clarify things and have a look at the big scoop of the series. Just like in Five Star Stories, it is impossible for the animation to cover the entire complexity of the fictional world one creator is trying to get trough, much in the case of 1000 or so pages books.

I a have a question about the "Impossible" nikname of Toori. It is related to him not being capable of doing greater things?

Now, can someone tell me whether or not Naomasa is important at all? She didn't seem to get much more than a crate falling from the sky in the way of character introductions. I mean, at least the Indian guy said something.

"Curry! It's hot!"

So, really. I take a liking to her, so I'd be a little disappointed if she weren't in any way a worthwhile character.
I asked this in the anime thread, but was pointed to go here.
