Thoughts:

  • Wow. Yuuki Hiro. That was an amazing performance. The book explains that his character Teiou Sekai gets obscene amounts of pleasure from ripping the foetuses from women in their last month of pregnancy. He uses a surgical scalpel. By the way, his name is written the largest down Aya's chest; I thought it was the name of the group initially, since it shouldn't be a person's name, but it means "Emperor Realm" when used with the kanji in the book and is a pun on 'teiousekkai' which means Caesarean section.
  • I've said that almost all the songs up until now remind me of old school Weiss in some form or another, but "Ai ga Umareta Hi" really didn't. I liked it though. The score throughout the drama section was consistently amazing. And yeah... kinda 90s in a good way.
  • Yoshikazu's preferred name is Miwa now, rather than just a nickname that people use. What does he say around SCENE 0-2 12:10? Because it sounds like he says Velvet is the daughter of someone called Takatori. And that... That... That would be pretty surreal.
  • Velvet is Aya's lover. I didn't read the booklet (except for Yuuki's character) because I thought I knew who everyone was, so this came as a surprise when she said so in the drama.
  • So. Yuuki's character. Was he throwing darts or scalpels at Aya at the very start of the final showdown? What is the counter for a scalpel anyway? Are they long, roundish objects and therefore 'hon'? [Edit: Asked my Japanese teacher. She said BOTH scapels and darts are 'hon'. Make of that what you will.] OR WAS YUUKI'S CHARACTER USING DARTS?? Maybe the answer is in the rest of the CD, since it's over an hour long and my attention span isn't fantastic when I've got nothing to look at (although I've listened to it quite a few times now). But I can't just let that possibility go. :P I wonder if there's anything in the fact that Teiou Sekai thanks Aya as he dies. Oh, and he repeatedly says they're the same kind of people (a common theme in Weiss, though...)
  • As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm at an incredible disadvantage for finding secret hints in this compared to native speakers. My current theory is (1) it's all a masssive in-joke for Weiss fans or (2) Everyone in Erinis but AYA is a liar and they are deceiving him and/or working with Mixed Paranoia. Maybe both. I wonder what seiyuu will play the next villain? Miki or Seki? :P
