Wow, with those revelations, I think Grace will now be dethrone in my list of most evil anime villain. I'm beginning to like her...well the pre-reprogrammed Grace. Great to see a bit of Sheryl's past. I wished they put this on the series or make an OVA for this.

Perhaps Grace went through some sort of a Stockholm Syndrome?

Well, holy crap. Absolute confirmation of everything we postulated here ( which we really didnīt know officially, but just speculated about ). Congrats to us, we really nailed that down very well. Wow. I am really amazed that our speculations were exactly right.

Also, the additional stuff is interesting. When do y'all guess would be the point where Grace does this to herself?

Yeah, poor Sheryl. At least she didn't get traumatized or something (unlike someone I know). She's really a strong person.

The statement "I'm Sheryl Nome" has more meaning to it then just a boast, because this Sheryl Nome lost her parents, wandered in the slums of her homeland with only herself to rely on, found stardom and became the voice of the galaxy, an unimaginable dream for most street urchins. In the late of the series, this Sheryl Nome pressed on to sing despite having been betrayed by the closest person in her life. She sang not just for herself but for the sake of others. It could have been so much easier to withdraw, especially with a looming death to pass as an excuse. Sheryl's strength really astounds me. Her character has pretty much influenced how I envision an ideal female character. In short, she is Sheryl Nome and she is awesome.

Pardon me, I think someone spiked my punch.

Please, I'll have whatever Lord raileon is having.



I completely agree, by the way.

Hm, for all I know, it could've been pre-series, Grace could've just proceeded with the plans in hopes Sheryl will still work and then voila, finds greenery. OTOH, nuking herself in ep 14 makes sense as well when the greenery goes kira! and she realizes she needed Sheryl no more.

Yes, indeed. And she always tried to hold her chin up despite that.

I was waiting for this. ;D My thoughts exactly.

Did you all really NEED more confirmation that Sheryl is awesome...? I thought that that was pretty much confirmed.

Here, I'll say it again, just in case everyone's forgotten:

SHERYL. IS. AWESOME.

Thanks for the translations.

It's good that they've decided to flesh out Grace and Sheryl's relationship here, but I thought it would be even better if they included the core bits within the TV series. The whole time I was reading that passage, I kept getting reminded of the Episode 18 sequence, where the first thing Sheryl mentioned upon finding out Grace's betrayal was about Ranka's powers instead, and it took off from there. It was a bit awkward, but hopefully, they'd make the transition smoother when deciding to add in more canon material in other formats to compliment the original storyline.

What happen to a certain deckmate? Did he get delegated to slaved, single oarsman? :'o Or did he plan a rebellion under a certain failure that don't want to change her name to Lord "***leon"?

Poor Yot-chan/Gubaba... He has yet to see how real cheesie is just errr... failure incomprehensiveable 'unpredictable' than her AS counterpart... and what a Drama Queen she is!

Can I just hang out on the boat part-time? I don't want to leave my battered little one-man Nanase dinghy alone for TOO long...

That said, I'm sure the music is a lot better on the Good Ship Yousei...
