So, what does the poll use to determin whether you have already voted or not? Save your external IP? Place a cookie on your PC that tells it when you last voted? Because both of them are easy to remedy..

EDIT: I tried to decipher the latest event on the main site. My brain aches, but I think I got the general idea, correct me if I am wrong:

It is not so much a questionnaire, but an entry form. To fill in that form one must know the arnswer to the question, which can be pieced together by visiting the sister sites of Sunrise's site, and collecting the relevant information, namely: Biglobes site, Bandai Visual's site, Lantis's site and Animero mix's site. Once you have the arnswer you can fill in the form (exactly how to obtain the arnswer or what to look for, don't ask me, I am not literate in Japanese), and are given a chance to win. Nowhere can I see the statement that this is for Japanese citizens only, but I doubt they would post outside of Japan.

--> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmonium

A note on terminology: In North America, the most common pedal-pumped free reed keyboard instrument is known as the American reed organ, parlor organ, pump organ, cabinet organ, cottage, organ, etc. and along with the earlier melodeon, is operated by a suction bellows. In North America, a reed organ with a pressure bellows is referred to as a harmonium. In much of Europe, the term "harmonium" is used to describe all pedal pumped keyboard free reed instruments, making no distinction whether it has a pressure or suction bellows.

The harmonium was invented in Europe in Paris in 1842 by Alexandre Debain, though there was concurrent development of similar instruments.

I suppose those staff lookalike weapons are their elements.
For Corals, they can only manipulate their lengths, just like what Nina did in her butou against Arika.
Pearls can change their shapes, like what Nao did against the tentacle monster.
And finally Meisters can materialize them into their favorite forms.

As for those bracelet lookalike things on their wrists and ankles, they have no official designation yet.

an OVA is neither a movie, nor a season you know...

OVA are in fact, either spin off or an extended end/episode (sort of aftermath)

MO OVA are 30 minutes episodes, with the plot following the end of MO serie.

It hasn't been revealed yet in the anime or official website.

But, my guess would be mid 20's.

Coral and Pearl Otomes: their native countries

A quick recap of the countries from which Coral and Pearl Otomes are:

Corals:
Nina - Artai
Tomoe - Windbloom (oh my, just imagine her as Mashiro's Otome! )
Erstin - Annan
Irina - Earis
Lilie & Yayoi - Romulus
Miya - Remus

Pearls
Akane - Florins
Chie - Earis
Shiho - Carteya
Nao - Artai

Don't know if some countries' spelling is right.

And I'm still wondering which are the native countries of Shizuru and Natsuki...

We don't seem to have an country with Shizuru's accent yet

I wouldn't be surprised if Natsuki is from the country she rules - Vyune or however it's supposed to be spelt. It's a tiny little country which contains Garderobe. Since it's separate, that's why they can't normally intervene in Wind Bloom.

A quick (but possibly difficult) question

Is it possible that Arika is actually Sergey's real daughter. Can she be misinterpreting her emotions - not actually love. Maybe she feels like he is a father figure.

Thats not possible if we presume Arika is Rena's daughter...

Also, Sergey was around Nina's age(When the flash-back occured in episode 2) which shows that he was too young to be neither Nina's nor Arikas father for that matter.

Based on speculation, mikoto might not be a cat forever...even in the manga, she turned out to be a human but in the anime...it is hard to tell.

No, Arika is not Sergay's daughter.

In one of the episodes, sergay stated that he is only a student transfer to Windbloom. In another episode, he had a flashback that he saw Rena holding onto a baby who might be arika.

About the love, I can't say much but there is a high chance that Arika is having real feelings for sergay.

He was indeed a transfer student, but he obviously transfered there BEFORE Rena gives birth to Arika.
Otherwise, he wouldn't have a chance to know her, since she seemed to stay inside the castle all the time after Arika's birth.
He even had to sneak around into the castle to catch a glimpse of Rena.

While Sergay's age at the time made it very unlikely for him to be Arika's father, I wouldn't write it off just yet.
