Define 'real enemy' ? There were a number of Russian magicians revealed.

And if we were to get technical, she's no longer with them anymore.

Well the odds are that the pope is quite a bit more fanatic than a local, using 2 local priests of my own as a example where one is a gun fanatic and the other likes likes heavy metal.

Hm, I am hoping that Kamachi includes Emanuel Swedenborg soon because that guy is perfect for the Raildexverse seeing as he claims he found a way to communicate with Demons from hell and Angels from heaven.

(Just me hoping for a local figure to show up)

Who was revealed? Sasha? She never was an enemy. We all know that it was Gabriel.
Vasilisa? We can say that in WW3 she was an ally to Academy City. She fighted only against Nikolay and other unnamed freaks.
Who else?
Under "real enemy" i meaned that she is not a crowd of extras who were defeated by Accel. She has an artwork, a design and may be her character will be more revealed later.

Anyway, you guys, please don't confirm/deny the speculations until the full translations are out(which is why I'm not adding to this)...

Again, as a reminder, NT4's coming out in March.
Sweet We get in 3 months then a bloody 6 month gap period

That would be 幸せ家族化計画! by Ohagi. Sumeragi is probably referring to the online novel 「いい子にしてたかァ?」 ― 結婚しようか? by ジョウコ that already spawned at least 2 doujin.

That's included, although I'm more focusing on ココアホリック's doujinshi 壊れモノにつき、 and others like it.

BTW, who keeps track of all the fan couplings? Accel x Mikoto is 電磁通行.

Like I've said I'm pointing out she's not longer working with them so you still haven't seen a 'real enemy' from them.

LOLZ at the latest translated parts: So GREMLIN's main line of magic has something to do with morbid fairytales eh? Cinderella was morbid because in the original version the sisters had to cut their toes and some par of their feet to have it fit the glass slippers....

and about the Leshy....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leshy

When my mom told me this version of Cinderella, I was thinking like "SHIT, mom! That's disgusting!"....

Now all we need are Brownies, Trolls(fairytale kind of trolls), Elves, doppelgangers and such like the witch in "East of the Sun and West of the Moon"...

Well, all fairy tales were meant to tell a lesson. They didn't have to be nice.

The original little mermaid turned to bubbles after losing everything and is floating around as an Air spirit for all eternity, except when someone added in that whole good child, bad child thing.

Leshys remind me of a similar norse creature...but I can't remember which one?

To be fair that's actually better than her former existence....

It seems nobody got the joke from Vol.02 Chapter 2.... ;_;

Btw, Leshy looks like a druid (?).

Is there any other creepy/cool fairy tale?

Being a mermaid was that bad? (Not really that familiar with the whole tale, just the bad ending)

Hunchback of Notre Dame was also child-friendly altered, and Pinocchio too I think.

Anyway, if she 's playing with people by gambling control, is it passive enough that they don't realize it, or that they're trapped in their own bodies?

What did you think actually happened to Hansel and Gretel's witch? Basically the origin stories of all these fairy tales usually have a dark twist but they've been sugar-coated over the years so that we don't recognize them.

For more details it wouldn't hurt to watch some Silent Hill walkthrough

Cendrillon didn't seem to register that she had just stabbed herself in the coconut until the spell released her.

One magician using a fairy tale doesn't make it a 'main line', they're still more incline to Scandinavian-European in nature.

That's why my second sentence includes creatures that are common in Norwegian-North European myths. Scandinavian and Norwegian folktales happen to be a small interest of mine.... And I find most of them morbid: Giants with no hearts, bursting trolls, etc.

@Twi
Meh, a magician using the Little Mermaid as a base of her magic would be Water/Wind type....

That would be cool...

Fair enough; personally I was hoping Gremlin would be a little more multicultural iykwim - stuff like Norse or Greek (for eg.) have been rather overused in many stories... But that's just a minor concern.

I actually took an interest in Norse Mythology after seeing Stiyl for the first time in the anime, in fact it's the basis for me going into writing and has dyed all of my stories.

And actually that would be cool....hello next fanfiction enemy!!!

Well, it's not like the author can suddenly split from his bread and butter can he? He at least partially studies the myths he throws up I think, so he had to expand from there.

Although, a Kalku might be interesting.
