No do use spoilers, I've already had one big thing ruined I would really prefer not to have more of it ruined

The president is awesome

New people in the thread, I guess, since ancient times this thread is known by the lack of spoiler tags, so its no surprising. Keep that on mind always.

And yet, I won't stop asking people to use tags, maybe someday they'll listen.

The problem with spoiler tags is you have to either implement a ruthless policy that relies on people's judgments to consider for themselves what a spoiler is, or no policy at all. I think the easiest way to do it is to just tag anything that hasn't been translated yet and leave the rest fair game.

Hmmm... so also the president of US speaks Japanese... well, if an UK royal attendant knows Japanese, why not him, right?

...Of course it's Pearl Habour, it just had to be Pearl Habour...

I don't know how accurate his depiction of the economy/politics is, but Kamachi certainly have more skill writing in that department.

I think the Japanese and the Chinese are the only armies ever to consider Pearl Harbor as a strategic point in attacking the U.S. from the Pacific.

But since the enemy is European, it doesn't seem to fit. D:

Going by how it was formed, I believe GREMLIN is mostly Russian and as such, an attack from the Pacific makes sense (despite the Russians that claim to be Europeans )

Wasn't the Russian Fairy just a member that joined them? Cinderella herself seems to have been French.

Oh, now that you mention it, the predominance doesn't necessarily have to be Russian... France was Russia's ally during the war after all. Still, we can't be certain that GREMLIN is mostly French either, Cendrillon is the only French gremlin we've seen so far.

I suppose the safest guess then is to say that GREMLIN is probably cosmopolitan.

Never said that ^_^;
They just seem to be a multinational mix of mages who don't want WW3 to end with Science Side's victory. Doesn't look like we can connect them to any nation at the moment.

They most likely chose the name GREMLIN because of the legend associated with it, not the nation.

Well he made a pretty convincing argument for why Gremlin picked Hawaii over the other States, and I have to give credit for creativity.

In the whole of history America was only severely attacked twice; New York and Hawaii.

Then we have to consider that since the Author is Japanese, we have to see it from his perspective and what he's familiar with.

If he was a westerner, the attack would probably be from the Eastern Seaboard because that's probably in their mindset what would be the obvious target.

Not really, that would be suicidal. There are just too many troops concentrated there for the GREMLIN to act as much as they did.

hey guys Quick question i need your help in this topic

Im going away to see family for christmas , meaning no computer, that I’m ok. by the time I’m back NT 3 will be done and all the hype here will be down for a while. So before that happen i need to ask the to aru PRO something, Sometimes The Illustration cover of a book is what intrigue us to buy it, sometime there real or just a scam so we can buy the book and read it

Now for the cover for NT.3 i was super excited to see that happen, but after reading spoiler (in kindness of Flere821) i don’t see that happening and if i recall the front cover of NT.2 that didn’t happen either! so before i leave tomorrow i just want to know if that happen or not

PLease put it in a Spoil tag so i can respect tsunade666 wishes

thank you
