I wonder if the world of Tearmoon has multiple moons? Honestly I wonder a lot about the setting. I can't even remember if there is magic in the setting, or if there are monsters. We know they have the printing press.
That was a nice ending to the part. I'm wondering how long-suffering Mao is going to be having to mediate between those three. Sousuke seemed to get a sense of Sailor lurking about. It's going to be funny to see how much he messes things up and his reaction when he finds out that he's dealing with the TDD-1's crew.
@jon-mitchell While I can see the brocon line being brought into play somehow, (It's not like anyone can waltz up to the wormhole and go to Eldant.) I just can't see the childhood friend coming back into play. She didn't burn that bridge. She blew it up.
@libri-liberorum I also wondered this... I assume it's something along the lines of flying is prohibited in the area of a city (quoting security concerns / requiring special licenses), or maybe it is something only people with high mana and compatibility (or even straight up Beloved) can pull off. We didn't hear much about any other people flying around so we don't know how outstandish it is.
She technically could also use magic to fight them off or enter her item box to escape. I'm assuming the reason she didn't is that it would cause spirits to flock to her and reveal her status as Beloved + anger the spirits and possibly cause disaster
@libri-liberorum My current favourite theory is still that Myne isn't actually Urano or original Myne but just thinks she of herself as Urano as her memories of being Urano makes up most of her memory. Myne is then another iteration of the same soul, the true core self belonging to the soul or similar that wants to make up for it's actions in a past life. I've mentioned this earlier in this thread with some observations to support it.
This was kind of niggling in the back of my mind while reading vol 5 so I reread parts of vol 1 and 2 to see if it held up to scrutiny. We've Effa telling us about original Myne's dreams, the narrator and Shuu telling us about Urano and we've Myne's immediate changes/perspective changes on waking up in chapter 1.
The most telling change was in the author's own actions. In the WN the prologue is from Urano's perspective and leads directly into Myne's perspective making a clear link between the two characters. This is completely different in the LN as the prologue is both much longer, we see some details about Urano's less than stellar personality, and from a 3rd party perspective. This change in perspective away from Urano breaks the narrative link between Urano and Myne that existed in the original WN and is deliberate choice as 3rd party narration is used no where else in the series.
I'm totally with Gunther on the subject of Myne being divinely blessed since everything she has done so far links her thematically with at least the Goddess of Water in that she is the catalyst for change and growth in people and society.
Now we are back to the earlier discussion on what Myne means when she says "books" and "librarian". It's hard on the reader when even the other characters' complain that Myne's verbal explanations are terrible and that even they need a demonstration to understand. =D
Finally got to read update but this looks fun with the guild joining and doing tasks (until another killing spree happens 😶). Should be interesting to see how they take out those monsters on the next update
@dry-eyes No, that's what Terabyte means. Dialogue from Kaoru continues, so previous paragraphs shouldn't end with a closing quote to signify that. If you closed the quote you would expect the speaker to change, and this isn't the case.
Thank you, peeps! Glad you are all hyped and looking forward to the grand finale of this first volume.
@Terabyte Your first two suggestions are not errors; that's what the text said. The first is a joke, YouTuber + PotatoStarch. The second one is simply a weird name he gives to the mysterious ban, otherwise it would be "bizarro ban" (all in lower case). In terms of the third one, "wonderous" is technically correct even if it is not the most common word choice. I'm gonna wait and see what our QA team thinks about that one.
@Dry-Eyes Well, that's a quite peculiar one... Clearly neither our translator nor myself knew about it. Fixed!
The final part of volume 1, part 9, is coming up on Monday 20th! Don't miss it!
@harunachiep said in Otherside Picnic Vol. 3 Discussion!:
28% - “Did I have that scary a look on my face?” (maybe remove the 'a')
This one is fine. Removing the "a" changes the context completely.
"Did I have that scary (of) a look on my face?" - Was the expression on my face scary?
"Did I have that scary look on my face?" - There is a previously mentioned "scary look" that I sometimes get, did that happen again?
@steelblaidd Getting her ass kicked by Lud (and Sven) in a dilapidated repurposed hunter unit while using a brand new hunter. Fatally embarrassing.
I'm surprised that "officially" Wolf Man hasn't given up on killing Lud, but I suspect that it will amount to nought. I'm wondering who's going to crack Hilde's shell. Also, I'm a touch surprised by the green-eyed Lud.
And that battle in the capital. Rather one sided, so far, but I don't see them losing any time soon.
Off to the next part!
That was definitely some super heavy plot armor. The new waifu (He's got three, so it's officially a harem.) seems to also be a guardian bearer, or did I read that wrong?
Volume 2 is going to be even bloodier, I suspect.
@steelblaidd Actually, I think Vi is going to invite her to lunch. Maybe to discuss what it will take to get Cercis to stop coming by. :)
Or maybe to make a contract to formally divide their respective duties?
