Well, I don't think you have t worry about the card games unless it's a shout out, which I don't think is gonna happen.

However, I find it odd that the ages are placed with Egyptian Gods, when we haven't yet had a single Egyptian magician show up in the series. We've got England, Russia, Central America, Japan, and a few other European countries, but no Egypt.

its all based on the thelema religion, and the real aleisteir crowley made a trip to egypt with his wife, were he meet aiwass who told him the contents of the book of law, at this point is where he got the concept of aeons.

Egypt is now a Muslim country right? Well, things could get hairy you know...

...My guess is that the Author want to separate Aleister Crowley's Aeon of Egyptian Gods, with the actual Egyptian Gods so as not to confuse people.

plus, Egyptian magicians were hardcore badasses. As in the "force their way into heaven and then laugh at the 4 archangels desperately trying to kick them out" kind of badass

really, the only magicians who were better than them are Elijah and Jesus himself...

PS: happy new year

it migth gat a little hairy, but mostly because thelema has connections to islam, and too several references from judahism, well its actally based on lots of religions,cults adn magic, but those teo are the most "untouchable", also thelema use of the egypcian god names, just for reference, for the description of the aeon marching the story of the gods.

Moses and Aaron pretty much gave the Egyptian Magicians' an ass-whooping.

Hebrew God is mad, Egyptian Gods completely crushed.

oh yeah, forgot about Moses. Yeah, pretty much any hebrew prophet, since they could directly call for God's intervention and he'd comply to pretty much whatever request they'd make.

heh, when you think about it, they were pretty much using something similar to the secret chief theory, only their secret chief was GOD...

horus could be Fiamma since he has micheals power

Touma=lucifer-set
Fiamma=micheal=horus

Both are arch enemies

and fiamma has got a falcons claw.

yeah, but even Metatron couldn't touch them and had to trick them into taking off their talismans, before he could kick them off

Brussia is one of the IIRC Russian mages in vol 20. He appears in the part before Lessar and Touma sneak up the train into Fianma's fort.

Aleister's aeons aren't really Egyprian gods. They just use them as symbology

2010 Light Novel Rankings:

1. Full Metal Panic! (11)
2. Full Metal Panic! (12)
3. Toaru Majutsu no Index (20)
4. Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii wake ga nai (4)
5. Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii wake ga nai (5)
6. Toaru Majutsu no Index (21)
7. Nekomonogatari: Black
8. Ore mo Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii wake ga nai (7)
9. Toaru Majutsu no Index (22)
10. Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii wake ga nai (6)

http://mantan-web.jp/2011/01/02/2010...00017000c.html

Full Metal Panic! 11 and 12 are the two part finale, so it's understandable why it beat Oreimo and Index. If not for that, Oreimo and Index would be completely dominating this ranking with the exception of Nekomonogatari.

Volume 16 chapter 3 updated.

I'm surprised that there has been zero comments about it, to be honest.

Unless there is a new rules I'm not aware about.

speaking of V.16 since this is coming soon, isn't it odd when touma was holding aquas lance (from what i read in the wikia summary) that aqua couldn't move it cuz touma held on. Now im pretty sure in the laws of muscles that if one man who looks like AUNOLD should have no trouble lifting someone whos like a stick.

I'm chuckling when what first came to Kaori's mind while in that battered-up state was her first encounter with Touma.
