Getting those brand names explain a lot of stuff, particularly why everything from Tres España has the cross-like design.

It seems Kawakami had been working on the story of Horizon since his high school days, but he was unable to finish it due to lack of research/knowledge/experience. (Source: Atogaki of Horizon 1A)

That and there was a 3-year gap between Ahead 7 and Genesis 1, that he took to draft the intricate settings of Horizon (I still lol at that 780 pages of settings), so there is a lot of ideas/settings to be used here.

From what I see, maybe the reason why the volumes thickens as volume progresses, is I think Kawakami had already finished the settings of the whole story by the time he releases the first volume, and he keeps adding more contents to it until he reach the publication date of the last volume.

On Shirasago: I based it on the spell displays on Tomo when she prepared to fire at Oriotorai-sensei on Episode 1.
On dem unusual crosses: See the logo of San Mercado. That company probably makes most of the mechanical ships of Tres España.

Also see the hats on the females.

That's 白砂代座, not 白砂台座.

Oh. I thought that you had a reason as to why the logo was a cross.

^ By the way, this says that 白砂台座 is written in Hiragana as "Shirasago Daiza". I dunno why.

That's probably how it's pronounced.

The fact that the very seiyuu who lent their voices into the adaptation were amazed by the light novels served as a strong positive advertisement for the light novels.

Congratulations for Kawakami indeed.

Yeah, was just telling larethian how that's probably the new rising start, with any luck they'll at least give it enough material to grow into two cours before adapting it... Though I've heard it's really risky/expensive to make 2 cours shows these days...

P.S - C3 is at 23.

Got 4C along with Index NT 3 and C^3 XIII at Kino today (and even then they are not as ex. as bloody Itsuten 9....)


Looking forward to seeing Marfa and her Maska Orge in action...



Also...I call dibs on translating chapter 76

Lol same here, just bought 4C today... but then it will be added to my pile of books to read (I just barely touched 2A).

Around next week I'll probably marathon them when I'm done with finals...

I could have saved on shipping if I could grab the latest release of Rettousei bunko as well, but kino doesn't have it yet it seems.
Itsuten 9 was damn expensive because it comes with a DVD. I only want the book...
