Thanks a lot Daisu, I think your explanation makes sense.

Draugur 2012-08-04 14:54

This question is something to speculate about.

Spoiler for Takano:


There is another thing which bothers me, which might be not very easy to answer.

Spoiler for Rika's parents:


By the way, has someone noticed this before?

Rika always says "Mi-", Hanyu always says "Au", which makes "Meow" together. So I think it's a game between both of them. Everytime Rika says "Mi-" to someone, Hanyu adds "-Au" (which of course can't be heard by most people until Matsuribayashi).

Maybe this has been known before, but I never read it anywhere so far.

Spoiler for answers:


While that theory about Rika's "Mi" and Hanyu's "Au" is good, they've talked like this even away from the presence of each other. But we can also assume that they've done it so many times that it has become a kind of verbal tic.

Draugur 2012-08-04 22:31

Thanks for answering.

Simple, Tokyo get away with their plan.
And they use Takano as their scrape goat, so she's the one to be blamed.
She probably ends up killed by Tokyo or goes to jail for their crimes.

You're right there. After all, I think I'm just unhappy that Rika's parents who are really strong characters in my opinion (or, at least, have a great potential which unfortunately is neglected), are treated poorly by the storyline once they're dead. There's hardly any mention of them later on. Her father is really courageous, I think, because he opposes Oryou Sonozaki and tells her to stop bullying the Houjou family. Probably he knows that he will looked down upon for showing his sense of justice. But it doesn't seem to be a big deal anyway, he just spoke his mind and has to take the consequences, that's the way the plotline deals with it. On the contrary, in Minagoroshi-hen Keiichi is praised like a messiah for helping Satoko in a similar fashion, although there is no danger for him, and convinces anyone although he doesn't even act considerately (I don't like his talk with Oryou about Satoko because there are many reasons why Oryou should forgive Satoko and help her, but Keiichi hardly comes up with these reasons but prefers threatening Oryou, saying he will smash her head etc. - sorry for getting off the topic). I also like Rika's mother very much as a character, who is passionate as a mother although we know Rika doesn't love her very much, because Rika thinks Hanyu is her real mother.

Sorry, but where are these screenshots from? This isn't the Manga Gamer version, right? I certainly would remember this nice picture. In the version I got, the character design is very primitive in comparison.

That is the MangaGamer version. However, it would appear that the game has been modified to use graphics from the PlayStation 2 version of the game, as well as a more readable typeface.

The official MangaGamer releases uses artwork from the original PC version, with character sprites drawn by Ryukishi07, as well as photographic backgrounds. I actually prefer the original graphics.

Draugur 2012-08-05 18:10

Oh, I see. So I've got the original version but this other version looks really good, as far as I can see from that one picture.

Drifloon 2012-08-07 07:32

I don't think they edited the typeface; the MangaGamer version that I used just changed font by itself for the last two arcs. That font is the one I remember from those.

Bringing up Rika and Hanyuu's verbal tics for a moment. But Hanyuu's "auauau" noise always made me think of a dog/puppy, actually. While Rika's verbal tic is a cat. I usually hear "wan wan" for a Japanese dog sound, but it looks like "au au" is used in other languages too.

GabrieliosP 2012-08-10 13:11

Yep, it is used in portuguese for example. I once had a friend hear "Hauu Nano Desu" (Hanyu's image song) and he said "lol, is she a dog?".

Draugur 2012-08-10 14:48

Is "nyan" (like in "nyan cat") also onomatopoetic for the noise a cat makes?

"Hauu" does sound like a "howl"-ing sound a dog might make, though.

Correct. It's like the equivalent of the "meow" sound we have in English.

And also, "meow" isn't used in some annoying song about a poptart cat flying through space shitting out rainbows, and constantly repeating "nyan" for over 10 hours.
