That's another thread completely, I think. Please edit your posts more often, instead of double posting.

Normal society?

What normal society?

You mean the peaceful city and school of Japan at the start of the story? That is not normal at all. Their world is in a Cold War that never ended. Missiles and assassins move across the landscape like ants over a picnic blanket. They can't live in a peaceful society, because the peaceful society doesn't actually exist.

hmmm....i think ur taking things too seriously. i think society is peaceful and normal if the mech doesnt exist. no doubt this subject will be touch upon when sousuke finally saves chidori.....if he succeed that is.

Not unless Amalgam is destroyed for good in the end, which seemed impossible to do so right now.

You're ignoring the real storyline. The real storyline includes plane hijackings, bloody military revolutions, battles within cities, ect.

Fumoffu is just for fun. It really has no truely noticable impact on the main storyline. The manga is far from peaceful also. The manga skillfully mixes Fumoffu and the real storyline.

indeed, all the real actions are consider the main storyline. let just go back. the question was about how chidori's live wont be peaceful anymore or that their society was never peaceful and normal in the first place. consider ourselves as examples, our lives are very peaceful cept for the middle east but who cares about them. arent their world similar to ours??? in fumoffu, they have fun and dont even give a damn about mech stuff. as for the whispers, only military ppl know about them. so yea, its peaceful and normal. i could go on about the main storyline since i've cover the side stories/fumoffu but i rather not.

sorry for double posting but i just thought of something that might end the discussion about peaceful normal society, that is if you guys wanna cont.

right, even chidori said her school was peaceful, as was everything else like the train station, home, uhh malls and ppl in general b4 sagara came. there.... all the mech stuff was just news like the war in iraq. the whispers stuff, only the intelligence know about them. the classmate, and again, ppl in general are peaceful and normal. except for the ppl in hong kong which i dont care anyway. why would a big business hub turn into a ghost town anyway.

It's a well-orchestrated mirage. A facade. A show. A fake. The entire world's in turmoil, but only a few really know, and fewer know the details.

But anyhow, back to what will happen if Kaname and Sosuke eventually hook up...

1. Have babiez.
2. Go on crazy missions together while they live the babiez with that glasses girl.
3. Have more babiez, in elevators.

No, I'm referring to James Bond's habit of making out with Bond chicks right after he meets 'em, in the most unlikely of places. Specifically in Agent Under Fire.

That's what I envision Sosuke turning out as, except with only one Bond chick, unless Kaname happens to die...

He'll never become a smooth talker.

So, it's up to Kaname to make the first move and I doubt she'll find an elevator sexy...

It appears you are ignorant of the FMP background...

HongKong never actually became a business hub in FMP, at least not the one we know. The cold war never ended. Do you even know what that means?

Mythril and Amalgam are not some minor mercenary groups. They are well enough equipped to destroy several countries. The whole plot revolves around how governments no longer hold the key to power, as the Whispered skewers military might away from large nations.

And these holder of Whispered are not constrained by politics. They can, and would, attack Japan and burn it to the ground if they see fit. The Japanese government would be powerless to shield its people. This is exactly what I mean by the Cold War not ending; you live in fear, not knowing whether today would be the day some enemy will come from the horizon and wipe your town off the map. And there would be nobody who can protect you.

Compare that to conflicts and terrorism in our world? We live in a paradise.

The only thing is, the citizens of Japan in FMP is wholly ignorant of this danger. Ignorance, unfortunately, can't stop bullets.

Read more of the novel, and you might see why being peaceful is not normal there.

i put ' why would hk turned into a ghosttown?' as a joke. u turned it into a big argument again becuz of 1 little line, 1 little joke. i still think ur overblowing things. plus the points u made arent even mention or the focus of the authors work. plus i would like u to explain why isnt america, russia, europe, china, or the rest of the world isnt peaceful or normal. but it doesnt matter anyway as chaos reigns everywhere sousuke goes coz the focus isnt on the victims, onlookers, spectators, ppl in general. the focus is on sousuke and chidori's relationship, amalgam, mithril and all that. so like the anime, and manga, im going to ignore the victims, onlookers, spectators, and ppl in general, and you too, the overblowing things analyser.
