Gieve is hot.
So is Arakawa Hiromu’s fight choreography.
Regarding comments I got from this chart.
Lucile’s love for Ferris is platonic. After he devoured Eris Reed, Lucile was overwhelmed by the urge to eat Ferris. That’s why he kept his distant; he wanted to protect her.
And nope, he did not want to keep Ferris for himself. Everything he did was to ensure her safety;
He ate Eris Reed to gain enough power to protect her from their father.
He’s willing to become a monster to prevent her from being dragged into the [Lonely Demon] and [Mad Hero]’s scheme. (Ojiden vol.5)
There’s no ill meaning behind his “You’re growing up. I feel a bit lonely” speech. That’s him joking lightly.
Did you know he sometimes spoke to Sion like he’s hitting on him when they’re alone? It’s his twist sense of humor. If you try to judge him bases on his words, you’d end up thinking he want to fuck Sion than Ferris, really!
There’s still no solid hint that Luke likes Milk romantically, so I will leave his feeling for her as platonic. He wanted to protect her and has said that she was family.
In truth, Luke is quite an emotional deprived man. He was born a logical being. Even if he likes Milk and Claugh the most, he can still kill them if need arises. (Daiden vol.11)
Calne has asked Luke if he like Milke, and Luke’s reply was, “So that’s how it looked like?”, which is too damn vague. (Daiden vol. 12)
Luke said he want to find a way to get rid of Goddess!Milk. (Daiden vol.11.)
"You like Sion, don’t you? You think he is desirable." (Daiden vol.14)
Plus the words lust and greed just nailed it. I must admit my jaw dropped when the author actually went there, despite many hints.
I put his ‘wants to eliminate’ arrows to point at Lucile and Ryner because of that revelation.
Froaude wanted to get rid of Lucile and deemed Lucile’s existent as unnecessary. He stated that he will snatch Lucile’s power; that in the end it will be Sion and him who win. (Daiden vol.2)
It was clear as day now that he wants to replace Lucile. Sion needs Lucile’s protection, ergo, Lucile is important to Sion. And Frouade want to be THAT important to Sion.
Same goes for his irritation on Ryner. Froaude wanted to drove Ryner away from Roland. He said it was because Ryner’s existent clouded Sion’s judgment as a king.
While in fact, putting two and two together, he was just fucking jealous. *laughs*
Denyuuden Character Relationship Chart: Super Spoiler Edition
So I stumble upon this diagram making app, Grafio, which is quite awesome. Then decided to creat some simple love triangle chart for a lol.
I kinda got carried away…
Key characters who are still active only.
I left out Eris Reed because he never utter any words after Lucile devoured him.
May update if new info arrive.
I’ve just started playing this game.
It was the best decision of my life.
Just came back from The Hobbit: DOS.
Legolas is fucking scary. I never thought of him being scary. But shit.
That’s because I’ve always looking at you. Indeed.
Denyuuden’s goods for Fujimishobo’s 25th anniversary tho…
It amazed me to see Sion’s face popped up in a middle of a bunch of Moe girl in bikinis. XD;
All other posters just scream FANSERVICE GALORE and there this guy was, fully clothed looking dead serious. Like, wut?
It’s as if,
Staff san: Hey young boy, I think you entered the wrong room… wait, come in, come in. Alright folks, Denyuuden’s fanservice material has arrived! Let’s move to the shooting!
Staff san: Now can you get rid of some layers you’re wearing?
Sion: Over my dead body.
Other goods of Denyuuden are also eccentric from a bunch. There’re Ryner & his dad mini towel, a group shot Iphones case, Ryner & Sion card (?), Sion & his folks bag jacket, and the only goods with a stand-alone female character is a Ferris badge, in her cool as hell face.
I know Denyuuden is never about fanservice or moe (and thanks god it isn’t), but this is amusing. You would think this series belong to Zero-Sum or other magazine than Dragon magazine, seriously. lol
I have my doubt at first when I read the first 2 chapters of Arakawa Hiromu’s Arslan Senki, because the flow sometime felts a bit jerky, and I don’t felt attached to the characters instantly like I was with FMA. But now I don’t anymore.
Chapter 5 is full of many great moments that I like. And the characters are starting to grow on me. Narsas! Oh he is such a cool and fun character!
Arslan, too, are starting to show his quality. I let out a good laugh at his offering. Never saw that one coming. Hahaha. He sure is an observant boy!
I’m so glad I’ve decided to stop watching the anime after episode one. This way I can enjoy a surprise!
The artwork are more detailed here than in Silver Spoon, which seems right for the tone of the story. The fact that this is in a monthly magazine help, too.
