100 Rules of Anime
The laws of Anime is a growing list of physical, universal, and natural
phenomenon that seem to appear in various forms in all sorts of anime. The original
intent was an effort to classify these incidents into a list of "laws" that
explained how Anime physics are different from our own (real?) world. It is our hope
that you find them useful to studying Anime, or at the very least, worth a good
#1 - Law of Metaphysical Irregularity- The normal laws of physics do not apply.
#2 - Law of Differential Gravitation- Whenever someone or something jumps, is
thrown, or otherwise is rendered airborne, gravity is reduced by a factor of 4.
Some things have been known to "Float" for a few seconds before plummeting to hit
the ground, vehicle, or someone’s cranium.
#3 - Law of Sonic Amplification, First Law of Anime Acoustics- In space, loud
sounds, like explosions, are even louder because there is no air to get in the way.
#4 - Law of Constant Thrust, First Law of Anime Motion- In space, constant thrust
equals constant velocity.
#5 - Law of Mechanical Mobility, Second Law of Anime Motion- The larger a
mechanical device is, the faster it moves, Armoured Mecha are the fastest objects
known to human science.
#6 - Law of Temporal Variability- Time is not a constant. Time stops for the hero
whenever he does something "cool" or "impressive". Time slows down when friends and
lovers are being killed and speeds up whenever there is a fight.
#7 - First Law of Temporal Mortality- "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys" both die in one of
two ways - either so quick they don’t even see it coming, OR it’s a long drawn out
affair where the character gains much insight to the workings of society, human
existence or why the toast always lands butter side down. NOTE: Sometimes, Anime
heroes or villains never really die! In these rare cases they were a clone or cyborg
and the real hero/villain’s suspiciously missing in "Malletspace", or something.
#8 - Second Law of Temporal Mortality- It takes some time for bad guys to die...
regardless of physical damage. Even when the "Bad Guys" are killed so quickly they
don’t even see it coming, it takes them a while to realize they are dead. This is
attributed to the belief that being evil damages the Reality Lobe of the brain.
#9 - Law of Dramatic Emphasis- Scenes involving extreme amounts of action are
depicted with either still frames or black screens with a slash of bright color
(usually red or white).
#10- Law of Dramatic Multiplicity- Scenes that only happen once, for instance, a
"Good Guy" kicks the "Bad Guy" in the face, are seen at least 3 times from 3
#11- Law of Inherent Combustibility- Everything explodes. Everything.
First Corollary- Anything that explodes bulges first.
Second Corollary- Large cities are the most explosive substances known to
human science. Tokyo in particular seems to be the most unstable of these cities,
sometimes referred to as "The Matchstick City".
#12- Law of Phlogistatic Emission- Nearly all things emit light from fatal wounds.
#13- Law of Energetic Emission- There is always an energy build up (commonly
referred to as an energy "bulge") before Mecha or space craft weapons fire. Because
of the explosive qualities of weapons, it is believed that this is related to the
Law of Inherent Combustibility.
#14- Law of Inverse Lethal Magnitude- The destructive potential of any
object/organism is inversely proportional to its mass.
First Corollary- Small and cute will always overcome big and ugly. Also
known as the A-Ko phenomenon.
#15- Law of Inexhaustibility- No one EVER runs out of ammunition. That is of
course unless they are cornered, out-numbered, out-classed, and unconscious.
#16- Laws of Inverse Accuracy- The accuracy of a "Good Guy" when operating any form
of firearm increases as the difficulty of the shot increases. The accuracy of the
"Bad Guys" when operating firearms decreases when the difficulty of the shot
decreases. (Also known as the Stormtrooper Effect) Example: A "Good Guy" in a
drunken stupor being held upside down from a moving vehicle will always hit, and
several battalions of "Bad Guys" firing on a "Good Guy" standing alone in the middle
of an open field will always miss.
First Corollary- The more "Bad Guys" there are, the less likely they will
hit anyone or do any real damage.
Second Corollary- Whenever a "Good Guy" is faced with insurmountable odds,
the "Bad Guys" line up in neat rows, allowing the hero to take them all out with a
single burst of automatic fire and then escape.
Third Corollary- Whenever a "Good Guy" is actually hit by enemy fire, it is
in a designated "Good Guy Area", usually a flesh wound in the shoulder or arm,
which restricts the "Good Guy" from doing anything more strenuous than driving,
firing weaponry, using melee weapons, operating heavy machinery, or doing complex
martial arts maneuvers.
Fourth Corollary- The more times the "Bad Guy" fires, the fewer times he
#17- Law of Transient Romantic Unreliability- Minimei is a bimbo. (Note: The
Minority Opposition in Ohio disagrees and thinks all men who like this stuff needs
to get out more.)
#18- Law of Hemoglobin Capacity- the human body contains over 12 gallons of blood,
sometimes more, under high pressure.
#19- Law of Demonic Consistency- Demons and other supernatural creatures have at
least three eyes, loads of fangs, tend to be yellow-green or brown, but black is not
unknown, and can only be hurt by bladed weapons. Also, acid has been known to work
just as well...
#20- Law of Militaristic Unreliability- Huge galaxy-wide armadas, entire armies, and
large war machines full of cruel, heartless, bloodthirsty warriors can be stopped
and defeated with a single insignificant example of a caring/loving emotion or a
First Corollary- Whenever a single war machine (mecha, starship, etc.) goes
up against an entire army, the army always loses.
#21- Law of Tactical Unreliability- Tactical geniuses aren’t...
#22 -Law of Inconsequential Undetectability- People never notice the little
things... like missing body parts, or wounds the size of Seattle.
#23- Law of Juvenile Intellectuality- Children are smarter than adults. And almost
twice as annoying.
#24- Law of Americanthromorphism- Americans in Anime appear in one of two roles,
either as a really nasty skinny "Bad Guy" or a big stupid "Good Guy".
First Corollary- The only people who are more stupid than the big dumb
Americans are the American translators. (Sometimes referred to as the Green Line
Second Corollary- The only people who are more stupid than the American
translators are the American editors and censors.
Third Corollary- Canadians are usually portrayed as smart, strong, handsome
#25- Law of Mandibular Proportionality- The size of a person’s mouth is directly
proportional to the volume at which they are speaking or eating.
#26- Law of Feline Mutation- Any half-cat/half-human mutation will invariably:
1) be female.
2) will possess ears and sometimes a tail as a genetic mutation.
3) wear as little clothing as possible, if any.
#27- Law of Conservation of Firepower- Any powerful weapon capable of
destroying/defeating an opponent in a single shot will invariably be reserved and
used as a last resort.
#28- Law of Technological User-Benevolence- The formal training required to operate
a spaceship or mecha is inversely proportional to its complexity.
#29- Law of Melee Luminescence- Any being displaying extremely high levels of
martial arts prowess and/or violent emotions emits light in the form of a glowing
aura. This aura is usually blue for "Good Guys" and red for "Bad Guys". This is
attributed to Good being higher in the electromagnetic spectrum than Evil.
#30- Law of Non-Anthropomorphic Antagonism- All ugly, non-humanoid alien races are
hostile, and usually hell-bent on destroying humanity for some obscure reason.
#31- Law of Follicular Chromatic Variability- Any color in the visible spectrum is
considered a natural hair color. This color can change without warning or
#32- Law of Follicular Permanence- Hair in anime is pretty much indestructible, and
can resist any amount of meteorological conditions, energy emissions, physical
abuse, or explosive effects and still look perfect. The only way to hurt someone’s
hair is the same way you deal with demons... with bladed weapons!
#34- Law of Probable Attire- Clothing in anime follows certain predictable
guidelines: Female characters wear as little clothing as possible, regardless of
whether it is socially or meteorologically appropriate. Any female with an excessive
amount of clothing will invariably have her clothes ripped to shreds or torn off
somehow. If there is no opportunity to tear off aforementioned female’s clothes,
then she will inexplicably take a shower for no apparent reason (also known as the
Gratuitous Shower Scene). Whenever there is a headwind, Male characters invariably
wear long cloaks that don’t hamper movement and billow out dramatically behind them.
First Corollary (Cryo-Adaptability)- All anime characters are resistant to
extremely cold temperatures, and do not need to wear heavy or warm clothing in snow.
Second Corollary (Indecent Invulnerability)- Bikinis render the wearer
invulnerable to any form of damage.
Third Corollary (Probable Attire permanence)- The clothing on the hero is
indestructible. Their capes, robes, (and if they are girls,) skirts, dresses, bows,
or any loose clothing will just flap when they are in the middle of a fire or ice
attack... Unless it's a hentai. It is believed that the clothes are made out of
Anime Character hair. (re. Laws 32 & 48)
#35- Law of Musical Omnipotence- Any character capable of musical talent (singing,
playing an instrument, etc. Is automatically capable of doing much more "simple"
things, like piloting mecha, fighting crime, stopping an intergalactic war, and so
on... especially if they’ve never attempted these things before.
#36- Law of Quintupular Agglutination- Also called "The Five-man Rule", when "Good
Guys" group together, it tends to be in groups of five. There are five basic
positions, which are:
1) The Hero/Leader
2) His Girlfriend
3) His Best Friend/Rival
4) A Hulking Brute
5) A Dwarf/Kid
Between these basic positions are distributed several attributes, which include:
1) Extreme Coolness
2) Amazing Intelligence
3) Incredible Irritation
#37- Law of Extradimensional Capacitance- All anime females have an
extrasdimensional storage space of variable volume somewhere on their person from
which they can instantly retrieve any object at a moment’s notice. This mysterious
dimension is commonly called "Malletspace".
First Corollary (AKA The Hammer Rule)- The most common item stored is a
heavy mallet, costumes/uniforms, power suits/armor, and large bazookas.
#38- Law of Hydrostatic Emission- Eyes tend to be rather large in Anime. This is
because they contain several gallons of water, which may be instantaneously released
at high pressure through large tear ducts. The actual volume of water contained in
the eyes is unknown, as there is no evidence to suggest that these reservoirs are
actually capable of running out. The reason water tends to collect in the eyes is
because Anime characters only have one large sweat gland, which is located at the
back of the head. When extremely stressed , embarrassed, or worried, this sweat
gland exudes a single but very large drop of sebaceous fluid.
#39- Law of Inverse Attraction- Success at finding suitable mates is inversely
proportionate to how desperately you want to be successful. The more you want, the
less you get and vice-versa.
First Corollary- Unfortunately, this law seems to apply to Otaku in the real
#40- Law of Nasal Sanguination- When sexually aroused, males in Anime don’t get
erections, they get nosebleeds. No one’s sure why this is, though... the current
theory suggests that larger eyes means smaller sinuses and thinner sinus tissue (see
Law #38 above). Females don’t get nosebleeds, but invariably get one heck of a blush
along the cheeks and across the nose, suggesting a lot of bloodflow to that region.
#41- Law of Xylolaceration- Wooden or bamboo swords are just as sharp as metal
swords, if not sharper.
#42- Law of Juvenile Omnipotence- Always send a boy to do a man’s job. He’ll get it
done in half the time and twice the angst.
#43- Law of Triscaquadrodecophobia- There is no Law #43.
#44- Law of Nominative Clamovocation- the likelihood of success and damage done by a
martial arts attack is directly proportional to the volume at which the full name of
the attack is announced (known as the Kamehameha effect).
#45- Law of Uninteruptable Metamorphosis- Regardless of how long or involved the
transformation sequence or how many times they’ve seen it before, any "Bad Guys"
witnessing a mecha/hero/heroine transforming are too stunned to do anything to
#46- Law of Flimsy Incognition- Simply changing into a costume or wearing a teensy
mask can make you utterly unrecognizable to even your closest friends and relatives.
#47- Law of Mandibular Combustible Emission- All anime characters seem to have some
unknown chemical on their breath that reacts VERY violently with extremely hot or
spicy food. This chemical may also be responsible for the phenomenon of fire behind
the eyes and from the mouth when a character (usually a female) is really angry.
#48- Law of Electrical and Combustible Survivalism- If you get electrocuted or
burned, YOU WILL SURVIVE!! Though your entire body will be scorched, seconds later,
your skin won’t have a trace of damage (Also known as the "Pikachu Effect").
First Corollary- When a magical bad guy/Alien/monster fires off a flame,
wind, or ice attack, the resulting effect is only enough for the hero(es)/heroine(s)
to be standing in the "Walking Against the Wind" stance, with his/her eyes shut and
letting out a pathetic "Aaaaagh!", and yet they are never harmed. This may be in
part to laws 32, 34 and sometimes 44.
#49- Law of Female wrath- If a male character insults a female character, he will
get a mallet, shotgun, or tank blast, or if she is a character that can perform
magical feats, a fireball or whatever, to the head, body or whatever (Also known as
the "Lina Inverse/Gourry Factor") This is because he always deserves it, and will
help him to cope in today’s society. (>Sniff Sniff
#50- Law of Artistic Perversion- Most (not all) Anime artists are perverts and are
under the impression that girls are willing to tear off their clothes, or wear VERY
small, revealing outfits at the drop of a pin (or pen for that matter).
Unfortunately, most Hentai fans are under the same impression.
#51- Law of Uninteruptable Nominative Clamovocation- This law is a mixture of Laws
44 and 45. Regardless of how long or involved the Spell or projectile attack is, and
the likelihood of success and damage done by the volume at which the full name of
the attack is announced, or how many times they’ve seen it before, any "Bad Guys"
witnessing a hero/heroine quoting the incantations for an extremely powerful attack
are too stunned to do anything to interrupt it. (Also known as the "Dragon Slave
52- Law of Telepathic Obliviousness- Most of the time, some Anime characters
(usually males) will think personal (Like that he/she has sabotaged something), or
perverted thoughts, while near some other character, WHO’S TELEPATHIC!! The reasons
for this are:
1) They forgot that the person is telepathic.
2) They just don’t give a damn.
The reasons the telepathic person doesn’t react are:
1) They’re preoccupied with doing something else.
2) They’d rather keep the fact to themselves that they are Telepathic.
3) They just don’t give a damn.
#53- Law of Chromatic Diversity- Air can be any color of the viewable spectrum.
#54- Law of Old Man Comic Relief- Comic relief comes in the form of a short, bald,
wise-mouthed dirty old man or alien. Or the combination of any two of those traits.
First Corollary- If old man is present, and is acting too horny, stupid,
etc., there will invariably be an old woman to whap him over the head with a frying
pan or something.
#55- Law of the Wise Old Man- Little old Japanese men always know how it ends and
withhold the ending from anyone, especially the hero. This includes special power
weapons, ancient relics, and people who know everything.
#56- Law of Omnipotent Unreliability- Any "Bad Guy" with Omnipotent powers/weapons
will never use those powers/weapons against the "Good Guy" until it is too late.
First Corollary- All "Bad Guys" suffer from Antagonistic Boasting Syndrome
which require all "Bad Guys" to threaten with or exemplify their prowess and not use
it against the "Good Guy".
Second Corollary- No "Bad Guy" may use any new, secret, or superior military
device without one of the following events occurring:
a) The control device being broken.
The control device being taken by the "Good Guy".
c) The control device is in fact not the real device at all and was just
"fooled" by the "Good Guy".
d) The "Bad Guy" has already lost and cannot use the device.
#57- Law of Minimum Corneal Volume- Eyeballs may make up no less than one sixth of
the face’s total surface area. More so if the case is a blonde woman.
#58- Law of Electrical Charges in Hair- Hair attracts electricity in abundance,
resulting in two outcomes:
a) A positive charge will result in the spikes-flying-everywhere-behind-me
A negative charge will result in the
#59- Law of Ammunition Accuracy- When there are multiple types of ammunition
available (paintballs, speaker pods), non-lethal rounds will always be more accurate
when compared to "standard" or lethal shots. (Macross Plus for paintballs, Macross 7
for speaker pods)
#60- Law of Active Female Attraction- In a comedy series, a male character’s
attractiveness to women is inversely proportional to how active they pursue them.
(Tenchi, Ranma, and Makoto OVA have a seemingly endless supply of willing
girlfriends despite their lack of romantic skill while Happosai, Ataru, and Carrot
couldn’t get a date despite or because of their constant attempts.)
#61- Law of Sweat Pore Variability- When a person is embarrassed, caught in an
awkward situation, or otherwise humiliated, all sweat pores on the body contract,
except for ones on the forehead. These pores expand to such a degree that a single
drop could fill a Big Gulp from 7-11.
#62- The Law of Inverse Training Time- A person who has been training for 3 years
is never as good as someone who has been training for one month.
#63- Law of Needs to Few and Many- The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the
few... of even the one.
#64- Law of Bad Humor- Whenever someone says something that is intended to be
funny, whether actually funny or not, the rest of the characters (even animals) fall
to the ground with their feet in the air. Sweat sometimes accompanies the fall.
(The sound of a cow mooing usually accompanies the joke as well.)
#65- Law of Extreme Anger- Whenever a female character gets mad, such as seeing the
male character with another girl, she becomes extremely strong (despite her usually
helpless look) so that she can lift a 1000 ton object to hurt the guy. She can
sometimes perform other punishments that are just as cruel such as pinching the
guy’s face so hard that it changes shape. (see law #49)
#66- Law of Differentiated Gravitation-
First Corollary- If the airborne entity exceeds an altitude equal or greater
than two times the height of the entity, gravity is decreased by an inverse
coefficient relative to the upward momentum and mass/weight (if within at least
500 km of any gravity source) of the entity "jumping".
Second Corollary- The amount of Newtonian "opposite force" (in accordance to
normal downward velocity; "Earth gravity" speed is equal to 32ft/sec/sec) is also
inversely proportional to the "actual" speed of the airborne entity. In all
actuality, an entity that appears to be flying towards a solid concrete parking lot
from space will actually land, producing an opposite force of approximately 1.73 lb.
of pressure. Unless this particular entity is a "Bad Guy". Then the law exhibits a
mysterious exponentially proportional Newtonian opposite force, thusly increasing
this variable by a factor equal to the inverse-gravity potential.
#67- Law of Conservation of Ambient Dramatic Tension- In any situation where the
Ambient Dramatic Tension increases, the "Good Guy’s" Style Coefficient must be
increased by a proportional amount to compensate. In any situation where this does
not happen, the "Bad Guy" inevitably comes out on top. However, this usually leads
to a further rise in the Ambient Dramatic tension, which will always be offset by
an exponential increase in the "Good Guy’s" Style Coefficient.
#68- Law of Coercive Vehicular Control- No matter how complex or well defined the
control system, a character controlling a vehicle of any sort always does so through
means of undetectable subconscious psychokinesis.
First Corollary- Characters can perform actions with their vehicles which
clearly defy normal physics (see Laws of Metaphysical Irregularity and Constant
Thrust). The velocity, attitude and traction of the vehicle appear to be adjusted at
will, with the degree of absolute control being proportional to the complexity and
lethality of the maneuver.
Second Corollary- It is effectively impossible to remove characters from or
disrupt the passage of their vehicles without the character’s consent. This does not
always apply to "Bad Guy" characters, or "Good Guy" characters in situations where
the Ambient Dramatic Tension could increase in accordance with the Law of
Conservation of Ambient Dramatic Tension.
#69- Amendment to the Law of Conservation of Ambient Dramatic Tension- In any
situation where the Ambient Dramatic Tension increases without a corresponding
increase in the "Good Guy’s" Style Coefficient, not only does the "Bad Guy" usually
come out on top, but also his Smugness Factor increases in proportion to the rise in
Ambient Dramatic Tension.
#70- Law of The Rushing Background Effect- Whenever something dramatic occurs, a
survival instinct engages, thus rendering all incoming stimulus that is not directly
and immediately to the dramatic situation at hand a meaningless blur. This is often
referred to as "The Rushing Background Effect". Due to the increase in brain
activity and adrenaline levels in the bloodstream, the scene is often played out in
#71- Law of Interdimensional Hammers- Whenever a female character witnesses a male
character of her preference performing any sort of questionable act (i.e. Looking at
another girl or anything she might construe as perverted) she can reach into an
interdimensional realm (usually behind her back) and withdraw a huge Anime Mallet of
Doom with which to whack the said male over the head with. (see Laws # 37, 49, and
#72- Law of Instant Band-Aids- Whenever a character is injured (usually in a head
shot, maybe from a mallet whack) Band-Aids will always instantly appear on the
wounded individual (and always in pairs, set in a cross fashion). These bandages
will then, most likely, disappear by the character’s next scene.
#73- Law of Universal Edge Defense- Any projectile attack, from a blast of magic to
a hail of bullets, can be easily defended against by holding a suitably cool-looking
sword or other bladed weapon between the attacker and defender, usually so that the
edge cuts into the incoming attack(s), causing both halves to go flying harmlessly
past the defender. Observed most often in fantasy and martial arts anime.
#74- Law of Intractable Sanity- There is no such thing as insanity in anime. When
faced with horrifying supernatural forces that would drive most men mad, anime
characters will either:
a) Die quickly (but in accordance with all other laws e.g., slowdown and
Get possessed by them, especially if they are beautiful girls or men in a
position to ravish beautiful girls, or
c) Kill them, wipe the blood off their blades, and walk on whistling.
#75- Law of Celestial Body Control- At a dramatically correct moment, a hero can
summon a sun/moon/halo to appear behind him/her to cause a dramatic silhouette.
#76- Law of Aura of Forgetfulness- Any hero who wishes his/her identity to remain a
secret will invariably succeed regardless of disguise because everyone around
him/her will forget everything. Otherwise, how does Sailor Moon keep her disguise?
#77- Law of Cool Hair Factor- The hair of a hero will always coalesce into thick
strands that drape his face into a dramatic fashion, regardless of wind, the
elements, etc. (see Laws 32 & 48)
#78- Law of Inverse Coping- Any single event will happen to the ONE character LEAST
capable of dealing with it.
#79- Law of Martial Arts Training Invulnerability- The Myth that certain martial
arts will enable you to become so strong, that you can stop a nuclear warhead with
your bare palm. Unfortunately, for most otaku, they found the hard way that it just
doesn’t work in real life...
#80- Law of Stereotype Captain characteristics- If a captain of any type of ship is
male, he will invariably wear a big captain’s cap, a long overcoat, and have a
shaggy beard and mustache (pipe optional), and be a great tactician. If the captain
is female, however, she will invariably be young, well endowed, and ditzy as a pole
(horny father optional). Yet, she too will be a great tactician.
#81- Law of Shades/Coolness Factor- Shades can make you instantly cool, even if
you’re normally a klutz.
#82- Law of Hentai Plot- The proper response to any change in the plotline of a
Hentai anime is to start having sex.
#83- Law of Understatement- Anything that is deemed too impossible will become
First Corollary- Any "Bad Guy" stating "T-that’s impossible!" whenever the
hero is accomplishing some new feat/move/projectile will find out too late that he
is wrong and will invariably be toastied.
#84- Law of Dormant Powers- Anytime a hero is somehow outpowered and/or outclassed
by the villain, he will invariably release powers/new moves he never knew he could
accomplish... but his old teacher did!
#85- Law of Style Coefficient- In a situation where a Good guy may be in dire
straits, he will become stronger, smarter and more cool in a matter of seconds. (see
Laws #67, 69, and 84)
#86- Law of Bad Guy Smugness Factor- Whenever the villain actually succeeds in
beating the hero, they will begin to gloat uncontrollably, because they’ve never won
against the "Good Guy" (because they’re Eeeviiil!!). They usually get so cocky, they
tie the hero to a conveyor belt leading to his doom and leave to get a snack.
Usually this results in:
a) The hero escaping.
Clean-up for the underlings.
c) The villain getting toastied.
#87- Law of Tableware Nonexistence- There IS no spoon.
#88- Law of Goofy Turn-Ons- In Hentai, ordinary , pedestrian objects sometimes have
the magical power of either inducing orgasm or arousal. Some include warm water,
rolling on a smooth tabletop, wind, mild electrocution, the character toweling
themselves after a bath/shower, and very cold objects... like bottles of 7-up.
#89- Law of Penile Variance- All Anime men in Hentai have a ridiculously large
penis (lengths of 8, 9, 10 and 11 inches are most common). Some even have ones the
size of telephone poles, despite the blood loss that would accompany it...
#90-Law of Hentai Female Characteristics- All Hentai women have the following
1) Very sensitive and/or very large breasts with large nipples.
2) Very tight and/or sensitive vaginas.
#91- Law of Vaginal Variance- Hentai Anime women can take penis lengths of 8" and
up... completely... despite the fact that they might have a tight and/or sensitive
#92- Law of Hero Identification- All heroes are introduced by way of appearance
while someone talking about their (in)famous-ness, or by way of a voice-over of them
#93- Law of Cute Mascots- Any anime either Shojo or Shonen has GOT to have at
least one cute, furry little mascot by penalty of death!
First Corollary- If it is a Shonen Anime, the hero will be accompanied by a
Dog, Cat or any kind of animal, real or fake, that would be found with a hero of the
male persuasion. Any animal that would be associated with girls that is following
him around is there because:
1) It’s his girlfriend’s.
2) It is following him, despite his insistence not to do so.
3) Chicks will dig him more.
Second Corollary- If it is a Shojo Anime, the heroine will be accompanied by
a cat, cute lil’ mouse, or some disgustingly cute monster, or any kind of animal,
real or fake, that would be found with a hero of the female persuasion. Any animal
that would be associated with guys that is following her around is there because:
1) It’s her boyfriend’s.
2) It is following her, despite her insistence not to do so.
3) It makes her look cool.
#94- Law of The Force- Most Anime heroes are blessed with a unique sort of ability
that enables bad things to happen to those that deserve it or makes things like
bullets or debris totally miss them (Also referred to as "Dumb Luck"), even though
they are mostly unaware of it. Those who have this ability include Vash the
Stampede, Captain Justy Ueki Tylor, and Jar Jar Binks.
#95- Law of Naughty Tentacles- All Anime Tentacles are VERY horny and will rape any
human female, regardless of age ("She’s 18! No! Really, she is! I’m not lying!...")
First Corollary- Even when raped or molested by tentacles, Hentai Anime
girls eventually get into it & begin squealing in ecstasy. NO one knows WHY this is,
but some theorize there may be some kind of chemical that is secreted through the
skin of the tentacle...
Second Corollary- Women who are impregnated by a tentacle creature never
experience morning sickness, and also find it to be intensely pleasurable (Also
known as the Goofy Meter Redline Effect).
Third Corollary- Similarly, the resulting... offspring of tentacle/human
relations is immediately sexually active, often impregnating its own mother again.
#96- Law of Cat-Fighting- Two females with a grudge can and will go at each other,
sometimes ripping off clothes. Sometimes it escalates so much, that property damage
begins to occur.
First Corollary- A running fight can be so destructive, you can follow it
from a distance just by watching for the smoke. (Also known as the "A-ko/B-ko
#97- Law of Healing- Most anime heroes have a Wolverine-like healing factor that
enables them to regenerate from a massive wound or broken bone within minutes. Being
immortal sometimes helps. (Also known as the "Priss Effect".)
#98- Law of Stereotype Crew Characteristics- All ships, either waterborne or
spaceborne, have the following crew members:
1) The captain
2) His Lieutenant
3) Various female technical staff
4) A hotshot pilot
5) A cute little girl/twins (either stowaways or not)
6) The Doctor
7) The Doctor’s assistant (either a spy or not)
Weighted among the crew are various quirks which include:
1) Extreme coolness/luck
2) Amazing Intelligence
3) Incredible irritation
4) Extreme cuteness
5) Irresponsible drunkenness
7) Emotionless (Idiots.)
#99- Law of Sparklies- Whenever a character of the main character’s interest
appears, flowers, sparkles, or abstract circles of pastel colors appear around said
character, or both. Roses with exaggerated thorns appear when it is dangerous love.
No one knows why this is, though most have a theory: Anime characters are freaks! At
least, Marker Apenname seems to think so...
#100- Law of Anime Events- Much like wrestling, anything and everything can happen.
Extolling the Brave Chivalry of Youth* (Kallen's Character Poem)
Until I met you, I was only merely plastered with thorns.
I wanted to change this truth.
I seethingly and recklessly acted. But then, I didn’t believe that anything would come out of it.
When my brother was gone,
I heard the sound of the heavy doors closing behind me.
I cannot allow it. I will fight to the bitter end. I decided that I would not go back.
Then, someday, I would have died like my brother.
Until the very end, Kouzuki Kallen would not abide by authority.
That bit of willpower I was carrying with me, it slipped away from me, and I can feel it faintly.
At that moment, I envisioned you as the star at the break of dawn, inviting me.
If I would think that this is for you, my body would feel light.
Whatever struggles there were, the pain would go away.
I would be the first to come rushing to your battlefield,
raging like a lioness, crushing your enemies.
I would stand being muddied so that I could create a path for you.
Looking back, it's mysterious.
Even though I should have loathed and rebelled against Britannia's tyranny.
Without knowing it, I held personal devotion only for you.
Lelouch, that parting kiss,
even if it was a lie, if you had said, "I love you," *
I would even follow you to hell.
You knew that, didn't you?
It's not like you.
You're good at manipulating people just by your words.
Really, it's not like you to be kind.
Is that why you told me to 'live on'?
I fell in love with you* not just because of that kindness
I'm sorry that I bought you roses to tell you that I like you
I'm sorry That I was raised with respect not to sleep with you when you were drunk
I'm sorry That my body's not ripped enough to "satisfy" your wants
I'm sorry that I open your car door, and pull out your chair like I was raised
I'm sorry That I'm not cute enough to be "your guy"
I'm sorry That I am actually nice; not a jerk
I'm sorry I don't have a huge bank account to buy you expensive things
I'm sorry I like to spend quality nights at home cuddling with you, instead of at a club
I'm sorry I would rather make love to you then just screw you like some random guy.
I'm sorry That I am always the one you need to talk to, but never good enough to date
I'm sorry That I always held your hair back when you threw up, and didn't get mad at you for puking in my car, but when we went out you went home with another guy
I'm sorry That I am there to pick you up at 4am when your new man hit you and dropped you off in the middle of nowhere, but not good enough to listen to me when I need a friend
I'm sorry If I start not being there because it hurts being used as a door mat, only to be thrown to the side when the new jerk comes around
I'm sorry If I don't answer my phone anymore when you call, to listen to you cry for hours, instead of getting a couple hours of sleep before work
I'm sorry that you can't realize.. I've been the one all along.
I'm sorry If you read this and know somebody like this but don't care
But most of all
I'm sorry For not being sorry anymore
I'm sorry That you can't accept me for who I am
I'm sorry I can never do anything right, and nothing that I do is good enough to make it in your world.
I'm sorry I caught your boyfriend with another girl and told you about it, I thought that was what friends were for...
I'm sorry That I told you I loved you and actually meant it.
I'm sorry That I talked to you for nine hours on Thanksgiving when your boyfriend was threatening you instead of spending time with my family.
I'm Sorry That I cared
I'm sorry that I listen to you at night talking about how you wish you could have done something different.
Ladies always complain and gripe to their friends that there is never any good guys out there, and they always end up with assholes who mistreat them. Well ladies, next time you're complaining, maybe look up to see who you're complaining to, maybe that special someone is right there hanging on your every word as usual, screaming in his head "Why won't you give me a chance?" Because the person you are usually searching for is right by you.

OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE (Found on BlackSaint's Profile)
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
This is really sweet...
When a girl is quiet, a million things are running through her mind.
When a girl is not arguing, she is thinking deeply.
When a girl looks at you with her eyes full of question, she is wondering how long you will be around.
When a girl answers "I'm fine." after a few seconds, she is not fine at all.
When a girl stares at you, she is wondering why you are lying.
When a girl rests her head on your chest, she is wishing for you to be her's forever.
When a girl wants to see you everday, she wants to be pampered.
When a girl says "I love you." she means it.
When a girl says "I miss you." nobody could miss you more than that.
Life only comes around once, so make sure you spend it with the right person.
Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, and calls you back when you hang up on him.
The guy who will stay awake just to watch you sleep.
Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead,
Who wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats.
The one who holds your hand in front of his friends and is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you there for him.
The one who turns to his friends and declares "That's her.".
If you read this, you have to repost it, guy or girl, or you will have bad luck for the rest of your life.
If you repost this, in five minutes your true love will call or message you.
Tonight at midnight, they will realize that they love you.
Something good will happen at approximately 1:42 pm tomorrow, and it could happen anywhere.
So get ready for the biggest shock of your life.
If you don't repost this, you will be cursed with relationship problems for all of eternity.
Repost this to your profile, and spare yourself the emotional stress.
5 year old girl holds hands with her 1 year old son. People call her a "slut", no one knows she was raped at age 14.
People call another guy "fat", no one knows he has a serious disease causing him to be overweight.
People call an old man "ugly", no one knows he experienced a serious injury to his face while fighting for our country in the war.
Re-post this if you are against bullying and stereotyping. I bet 88 of you won't,the other 22 arent heartless and will.
The bullets then flew in and shot through the three of them.
Compared to pain, the wound felt hot.
My body felt freezing cold.
I could clearly feel my life flowing away with my blood.
I, will die.
I heard people say that when a person dies, he or she will experience various regrets.
Surprisingly, there were no regrets.
The only person who came up was “that person.”
I’m sorry. If I weren’t here, you could live a much more normal life.
If I weren’t here, you could live much more freely.
I’m so sorry brother.
So very sorry…
I thought I was hallucinating.
I thought my brain made up brother’s voice because of my final moments.
Never in my life have I heard my brother so passionately call out my name.
He has no need to call my name.
I tried my best to open my eyes. I saw an overcast sky, the rebels gone, and my brother's left hand outsretched towards me.
Something overwhelming was released from his left hand.
That “thing” covered my decaying body and easily broke through my natural defense.
I could feel my brother’s “heart” hugging me.
I couldn’t describe it any other way.
He thoroughly read my body and completely rewrote it.
“I” was recreated
From my brother’s will, From my brother's power.
If this could be called magic, it’s too powerful, too skillful, too daring.
No, this is what “magic” is.
It’s abilities like this that are worthy of the name “magic.”
I could see the death god leaving.
Yes, run away. That’s it.
Contrary to what I thought, you're quite mischievous, God of Death.
To such a hallucination, I involuntarily laughed.
There was no taste of blood in my throat. Nothing at all.
“Miyuki?! Are you alright?”
My brother has such an anxious face.
It was the first time I’ve seen him express his emotions so openly.
That word passed so easiliy through my lips.
Not a single break or catch.
For me, you can tremble.
You can become more flustered.
My brother was holding me tightly, firmly, embracing me closely.
Inside the arms of “Onii-sama” is where I belong.
I felt like being a little impertinent.
So I hugged him, grabbed the hem of his jacket.
My brother's was looking at me, his eyes wide. His eyes narrowed, he took my head and patted it.
How should I interpret that sound that leaked from his mouth?
My brother smiles awkwardly and shyly looks away.
His expression tightened.
He was expressionless, but rather than being emotionless, it was more as if he was focused.
His profile, desparately trying to recall something.
Beyond the gaze of my brother, the vanishing lives of mother and Sakurai-san.
My call was not answered. Perhaps he couldn't afford to spare his concentration. My brother pulled out the CAD with his left hand
A large amount of Psions were activated within his body.
The enormous quantity of Psion Information within his body was being assembled by my brother.
My brother's fingers pulled the trigger of his CAD.
Mother's body, It looked as if it was sucked into his left hand.
That, of course, was a mistake.
Though I don't understand how you did it, I understand what you have done.
Because it happened to me, I can guess accurately.
He was reading through all the information within mother and then completely rewriting them.
The gun wound disappeared.
The blood stain on her shirt and the floor disappeared.
I ran over and hugged mother.
Even though she was in pain, she was breathing.
Is it the same as before she was shot... No, this is, isn't it as if she had never been shot in the first place?
My brother turned his CAD towards Sakurai-san.
Compared to the time with mother, his preparation and processing of the Psion Information was much quicker and smooth.
Clearly, he's gotten used to it...?
In only three tries, my brother was able to use magic of the highest difficulty and completely restored others' bodies!
Even though this fact was a bit scary, I reasoned that it was normal.
After all, this person is my elder brother.
My heart was filled with pride.
My ignorance towards him was no longer something that worried me.

Perhaps the best scene of the preview featuring best girl, translated by me. Refer to image 7 from OP
() denotes Miyuki's lines, denotes mirror Miyuki's and ] denotes my notes or just the implications if I can't translate directly
pg 15, last line:
She sat in front of the bureau mirror, and had a heart-to-heart talk with herself on the other side.
(...Yes, this is unavoidable. I cannot do anything about it)
The Miyuki in the mirror gave a heartfelt reply:
The voice from the mirror was slightly younger. [as in, the Miyuki on the other side is younger]
(Yes... It is an unavoidable fact that Onii-sama and I are siblings. (I) must agree to it, and so (I) shall.)
(Even if I don't consent to this at all, I have no choice but to give in, "Miyuki". Because Onii-sama and I are true siblings.)
(It is not a question of whether I concede or do not concede. Siblings cannot be married. I already knew that to begin with, and I never hoped to love Onii-sama as a woman. If I never hoped for it, is it abnormal to give up on it?)
(Isn't it a mother's duty to be wed and to breed children? Onii-sama would [only lose his job and I can't have that])
Miyuki stared hard at her own face, reflected in the mirror. She didn't realize that her arguments were all so petty and easily countered.
The young girl in the mirror began to speak. Words that provoked Miyuki who couldn't face her true self.
Miyuki wanted to cover her ears.
Miyuki wanted to turn her back to herself in the mirror.
Even so, no matter how hard Miyuki shook her head, she could not defeat the mirror.
She could no longer raise her voice against her own heart.
In the mirror was a pair of frightened eyes. She who never wanted to hold those thoughts. She who held back her own heart.
Grief leaking from trembled lips, her body crumbled to the floor from her seat.
With the mirror out of view, she was freed from her curse.
"But, it can't be helped."
Thoughts leaked from her body in the form of her voice. Her conflicting emotions were now one.
"Because I am Onii-sama's sister. Because I am Onii-sama's true sibling."
The feelings that she could no longer hold in her heart spilled out one-by-one.
"It is unforgivable to love a brother as a woman. The world will not forgive it. Even Onii-sama will think it is abnormal.
He would surely find such a concept disgusting." Alone in the apartment, Miyuki laid bare her thoughts in confession. Because there was no one to hear her, she could be honest to herself.
"I don't care what the world thinks. If people point fingers behind my back, I can take the ostracism. But, if Onii-sama were to label me as someone disgusting... I wouldn't be able to stand it...!"
She never believed that her feelings were sinful.
If she could be forgiven by a single person, it would not even be God.
"That's why it cannot be helped."
Miyuki stopped confessing. Her flowing feelings turned from words to tears, and spilled from her eyes that carried them.

Tatsuya faced the audience and began to explain in a loud voice:
"The new magic 'Baryon Lance' is a sure-kill magic against organic beings. For this reason, the demonstration will be performed on flesh and blood. Those who do not like unnecessary killing, it is recommended that you temporarily move to another room."
There were some faces that contorted after the warning, but not a single person moved. This meant that everyone around was truly affiliated with the Yotsuba.
While wondering just what kind of exhibition this was going to be, Tatsuya pulled out a Silver Horn Custom 'Trident' from the case, customized solely for this magic.
Taking the Trident pistol that he would usually dual wield with, he readied only a single pistol, with an extra bayonet attached to the tip. The bayonet was quite long, creating a rather unbalanced trademark look to it.
Tatsuya pointed the bayonet at the caged pig. Casually, he pulled the trigger, simultaneously activating the magic processes.
[Material: Baryon Disassembly]
The bayonet blade atom's nuclei split from it. In order to do this, the atoms were disassembled into the Proton, Neutron and Electron, then had the Baryons split from it.
[Execute FAE Process: Gather Particles]
Just as FAE theory dictated, the particles that were loosened from the bonds of physics clustered into a disc instead of dispersing naturally. The untargeted leptons, electrons and protons were held in place.
[Execute FAE Process: Fire]
The disc-shaped cluster of Baryons shot out like a spear. True to the FAE Theory, the cluster of Baryons exceeded the speed limits of magic, reaching 10,000 kilometers per second.
All the processes were reversed.

Midnight is coming near, but Miyuki have not come back yet.
But on the contrary, the bed room have already been prepared.
The room is a single chamber room, but there is only one set of bedding. However, there are two pillows.
[Onii-Sama, I'm sorry that I've come back late]
And at the most unfortunate time, Miyuki came back.
The door was wide open, by looking at the state of the room, just entering the room, they will naturally greet eyes.
[Miyuki, this is not my--]
"Doing" was on the tip of his tongue, but Tatsuya failed to say it.
[Onii-sama, this is...]
[No, this is not my doing. After I came back from my shower it is already in this state]
[What is it?]
[Nothing, umm, can I still call you Onii-sama? Or do you want me to call you Tat, T...]
[Just call me like you always called me]
[Then, Onii-Sama... our talk with auntie, is it over?]
[That, of course...]
It is now here, it was only a matter of course, Tatsuya originally wanted to answer, but he immediate noticed Miyuki's question had another meaning.
[Ah, it's over. That matter with Aunt tell me the reason, I understand]
[Say Onii-sama, about us not being brother and sisters]
Tatsuya's answer is extremely simple.
[Why would Aunt tell such a lie?]
[The explanation will be hard to understand, but it seems to contribute to that reason that you and I are getting married]
Maya's explanation is indeed hard to understand, but Tatsuya understood many things. But whether or not this is good for Miyuki, Tatsuya cannot determine.
[But we are obviously brother and sister...isn't it?]
[Registration and DNA identification seems similar]
[But with Yotsuba's power, they can do anything...]
[Children born like that do not have to worry about the aspect of genetic factors]
[Why do you say that?]
Looking into her eyes, Tatsuya decided to tell her.
[Your body does not have anything that would cause abnormal factor genes]
[Because you have a modifier]
[I am, modifier...]
[You are made out of father and mother's fertilized egg, based on collection of Yotsuba's science and magic, creating the "perfect modifier' overcoming shortcomings of the body, the highest masterpiece that the Yotsuba has ever created]
[Well...I will never leave Onii-sama, I will not fall into the netherworld, right?]
She feared, this body will not have a stable life. If one day she suddenly stops breathing, then she cannot be with Tatsuya.
[From aunt's tone, it seem that your resistance for continuous magic use is higher than mines]
[Can I...still live with Onii-sama?]
[Based on Aunt's words, you will live longer than me]
And so, heading that she and Onii-sama will live an equal amount of time, the fact that she was the regulator became irrelevant.
[Onii-sama is still my sibling...but I inherited the factor, so Onii-sama and I are completely different things]
Tatsuya's heart is like a thousand horses galloping through mud.
Indeed Maya said, Miyuki's genetic factor is adjusted, transformation is more appropriate, on genetic distance, the aunt and nephew relationship between Tatsuya and Maya is still far. But Tatsuya did not show Miyuki any hints to that point.
But Miyuki before and Maya still say the same thing.
Blood relations, this is not just simply look at a similar genetic factor...Tatsuya thought.
[Originally Yotsuba's person, how many genetic research have been studied at the fourth lab. Although not as comprehensive, if we look at it at genetic factors, you and I are no different]
Tatsuya deliberately stress on the commonality between him and Miyuki.
But, looking at the heat of Miyuki's re cheeks, this move have not worked.
[Well from now on, Onii-sama and I have a cousin relationship!]
[At least from the view of outsiders, I say probably]
[Then I am still Onii-sama’s fiancée right!]
Miyuki said in a grateful voice.
But her excitement, did not last long.
Because she saw Tatsuya’s troubled expression.
[Surely, you are disgusted………..]
[What do you mean?]
Tatsuya did not understand Miyuki’s sudden loss of reason, and voice that said the word, he did not understand.
[To Onii-sama, I am your sister right?]
[Ah, because that is fact]
Overall, Tatsuya will never compromise on this point.
[Sister wanting to be brother’s bride, of course it is not normal………..]
[Miyuki, don’t tell me you]
Tatsuya for a moment thought he heard wrong. But his facial features have a superhuman level of sensitivity.
Miyuki have no doubt said [sister wanting to be her brother’s bride]. This can only be interpreted as Miyuki and Tatsuya.
In other words, Miyuki…………
[Yes, Right! I was not ordered by aunt! When I heard that I was Onii-sama’s fiancée, I felt really happy.]
[This feeling has not changed. Even if I know Onii-sama and I are related by blood, I want to be loved! I want to be your bride! Because I have already given up, so I cannot give up even more!]
Miyuki’s voice was very excited but not to the extent of difficult to hear. It can probably be too excited because of the reason, from time to time there are a few incomprehensible words.
Just the phase [Because I have already given up, so I cannot give up even more, this means that [Before all this, I have given up, but when I know that I can get married to you I will not give up]. Miyuki from the start is trouble by this, for Tatsuya this is out of the blue. Indeed, Miyuki often expressed feelings beyond sibling love. But Tatsuya always felt that in the end it was merely admiration.
But, isn’t this his own thoughts.
Facing the crying Miyuki, Tatsuya cannot help but ask.
[But Onii-sama is very normal…..and have normal moral values…..so you will not have feeling for his own sister. To this very abnormal sister, you must feel very sick right……]
Miyuki finally begin to sob.
It is not loud and tearful, but those who hear it will be anxious, suppressing the inner sadness, barely bottled-up crying.
Tatsuya gets closer to Miyuki, moving his right hands towards her shoulders.
Miyuki’s hand, also reached towards his hand.
Tatsuya originally though his hand would be brushed off. To the fickle brother that was unware of his sister’s cries of pain, this is the natural response.
However, Miyuki shift Tatsuya’s right hand with both hands, holding it in his chest.
Tatsuya wanted to stop her, [hey, wait a minute] words failed to come out. Now his every senses, cannot do anything to abandon Miyuki, no, he cannot do it.
[Onii-sama, I, I…….]
Cling hard to Tatsuya’s hand, Miyuki shouted hoarsely.
From the bottom of her heart, she shouted.
[I, love……you. I love you. Onii-sama, I love you!]
Tatsuya was used to hearing [I respect you]. [I love you] was the first time he heard her say it.
Just a word of difference, the weight of those words is heavy. To Tatsuya this is the first time has learned such feelings.
[It’s fine even if I am despised as an abnormal sister. Because of my sick attraction towards you. But…..but, I beg you, I beg you, Onii-sama……….]
Miyuki lifts her tearful face.
So sad, yet so beautiful face, never has Tatsuya seen so far.
[No matter what………no matter what…….please let me stay by your side. Please do not abandon me. Please do not push me away]
Even when Miyuki’s crying her face is not distorted, but tears are coming from both sides.
This, Tatsuya knows today. Tatsuya feel, the sadness from someone crying.
Tatsuya’s right hand still holding Miyuki, move his left hand around Miyuki’s back.
[I, will not abandon you.]
[This…..this is……..Onii-sama, say it again………..say it again….]
Holding Tatsuya’s hand, cradled in the arms of Tatsuya, face pressed against Tatsuya’s chest,
Miyuki nervously asked hoping to hear it again, pleading nervously.
[Miyuki, I will not abandon you]
Miyuki issued an extremely emotional voice, her body was numb.
Tatsuya offered his entire being to his sister, by giving her that answer.
[Till death us two apart. I'll be by your side]
[However, that's probably not what you would expect in that sense]
[I am still like before, I still see you as my precious sister]
[You are my cute sister. Such a cute sister, how can I be disgusted.]
[I don’t think you are abnormal]
[I will not reject you, not abandon you]
[However, Miyuki……..that is because, I am your brother. And you, are my sister]
[So……….sorry. At least for now, I can only think of you as my sister]
Miyuki motionless listening to his voice, tightly gripped Tatsuya’s arm and sat up.
[This is enough]
Miyuki’s eyes kept the old tear, but did not make new tears.
[For now, this is enough]
Miyuki’s arm gently bypass Tatsuya’s neck, protecting her.
[Now, I will still call you “Onii-sama”]
Miyuki’s cheek rubbed against his face, whispering into his ears.
[Onii-sama did say “For now”, which is enough for me]
Miyuki’s strengthen her arms, hugging Tatsuya.
[Onii-sama, will you allow me to look forward to it? Doesn’t need to be “now”, “one day” when you no longer see me as a sister but as “Miyuki”]
Tatsuya whispered into Miyuki’s ears.
[This may be a little strange, but I will try]
Miyuki lets go of Tatsuya.
[Well, really, Onii-sama]
Miyuki exposes her smiling face.
And Tatsuya replies back with a smile.
Between brother and sister, things finally returns to normal.
[Miyuki, it is late, we need to prepare for tomorrow, go to sleep]
[Ah, you’re right, let me go get the bedding]
Tatsuya grabs Miyuki’s hand.
[There is no need. Aunt helped us arrange this. Today let’s sleep together]
Miyuki’s voice trembled, even when she cried, her voice did not wavered as much.
[Ah, um, Onii-sama, your intentions are, don’t tell me]
[No, you are mistaken]
Tatsuya face towards Miyuki, revealing a teasing smile.
[We’re just sleeping together]
Miyuki appease her chest, her reaction, look regrettable, but also very understanding.
It's only a rough translation, so there will be mistakes
Thoughts of Spanish translator
First of all, I would like to clarify that this time will not go up a detailed outline for the moment. I'm not sure what happened with Amazon, but I would wait until it's official day of departure of the book before talking about spoilers and some things.
This time I would like to give an impression of what has been this volume, and perhaps well to draw some preliminary conclusions. For this volume I do not think I needed to extend in a summary like that again and I see more activity and more people who can read the original to fill with developments. For my part I would like to further my own translation and perhaps work more special as Leo, or Steeplechase. For the previous volume I omitted several things and some purposely left them half so that the interest is not lost for seeking more spoilers or clarify things.
About how I got the book, I have to clarify that the issue is not mine but a friend who spent summers with his family in Kyoto. Luckily it is and those who purchase multiple copies, so he could send me one, though also I got an email saying the change of date of shipment. In other words, surely I get my own copy soon, or I leave my friend in exchange for that I have.
Shipping takes days, but for different channels the book came to me express mail from California. I think that a person who brought as part of your baggage, so it did not go through customs controls and so I came in a different box to Amazon.
For starters, this volume is shorter than the last, but not by much. In fact the pace of the story moves well to give more concise explanations of magic or some details, compared to the first volume at least.
The previous volume exceeded some explanation, but it's making them very interesting. Satou introduces elements of Asian beliefs and legends often. I think if you already read volume 7 will realize what I mean.
This time some are rather extensive, but not redundant.
This volume is the Arch of Succession of Yotsuba, and as the name suggests, is largely about the clan. This time we have more details of the family, guardians modified system, and rather peculiar characters.
When I mentioned that chat color pages (especially the tree / historical) are important, I meant precisely that.
It may not mean much to the common reader, but if they have at least followed Tokyo Ravens, and have read some manga, the names shown in the tree have much significance in the world of the "magic" in our real world. When giving more details (if they do later) will better understand this.
This volume makes clear one thing: Maya not planning things for Miyuki using Tatsuya, but the opposite. It is clear that everything that has happened is for the sake of Tatsuya, and the interests of Maya.
This time striking two things magical aspect of science: ESCAPES project that seeks to use an advanced system large-scale magic for beneficial and dangerous bed of the coast in the Pacific Ocean substances. From this he had spoken something / a /. It is a system that incorporates four elements that have been developed since the incident in Okinawa: Cast Loop System, Magic Flight, Stellar Furnace (vol.12), and the last piece of the puzzle that would initiate the project itself, and which will be shown in the final part of the book.
During the development of road and the main mansion we can see why Miyuki really afraid to leave Tatsuya as a simple servant. The attitude of many remains of contempt, but this will change later.
Maya reveals the great "lie": they are not brothers. They are brothers of one birth "mother", but not genetically. Miyuki and it was created in the laboratory and designed by Miya. Perhaps many are confused with this, but it should be. Maya reveals more things later, and so said that it is better not to believe everything or to believe blindly. To clarify, some spoilers are incomplete by what I saw. This does not make false, they are partly true but not all, and this is important for the character of Maya.
In short, simply do not believe anything until the end of the series.
Particularly because Mitsugu, who will play an important role in this volume clarifies this. Maya is not the mother of Tatsuya. This then really say that the mother is not in body, but in spirit his mother. He was born as a worthy son of Maya, with the power to destroy the world that took his happiness with the same kind of magic she possesses.
Again, for now Miya son Tatsuya is not of Maya for those who were confused. Why I not say for sure? Because in the end you never know. We can trust Mitsugu Kuroba, but not on how things are going to develop on.
It also reveals a bit about the birth of Tatsuya. As a boy with the power to destroy the world, as the worst weapon created, the clan felt the need to kill him. This is part of the conversation with Hayama in the previous volume. It is thanks to Kuroba Tatsuya family was not killed, but trained and made guardian.
What is obviously important is the next leader Miyuki. This is a decision of Maya, and commitment to Tatsuya too.
Not to dwell on the explanations, the last part of the book is the demonstration of the new magic Tatsuya: Baryon Lance.
This has two objectives: to show that the decision to commit to Tatsuya with Miyuki is valid, to demonstrate its power to the rest of the clan, and prove that in fact the son of Maya to have the same magical quality to it. This also means free it from its role as guardian, and give freedom.
The volume ends by explaining that the name Shiba Miyuki as next heir, and Shiba Tatsuya as her fiance are sent to the council of the 10 Clans Masters. However, instead of receiving a letter of congratulations and good wishes reach a formal complaint against the union, addressed to the headquarters of the assembly of teachers clans and written by Ichijou Gouki, Masaki father.
The next issue is the "Arc of the Conference of Clans Masters", and this time Angelina Sirius (Lina) returns to join the cast
Shibata Katsushige had just entered the Ministry of Defense as a staff member this year. Although the job required for them to periodically report to work on their day off, in general, their winter break was not as long as students. Today as well they made sure to give the new guy full day’s work.
As if he planned the timing, the vision’s incoming call rang.
“Katsushige-san, I’ll get it”
“Nah, it’s alright.”
Katsushige, who had just arrived, stopped Kotona, who was at the entrance to greet him, from returning to the living room. Katsushige operated the terminal imbedded in the wall.
“Dad, did you need something?”
Who appeared on the display was his dad, whom he had just seen three days ago, Shibata Osamu, the head of the Shibata family, a branch family of the Yotsuba.
“Katsushige, you’re back?”
“Yeah. I just arrived.”
“Is that so. Well, take a seat.”
Osamu addressed him from the other side of the screen.
Katsushige judged that this will take long and sat down on the sofa directly across from the display. The sofa set was a little narrow for Katsushige who was proud of his 180cm, 80kg frame which was a waste for an office worker.
“Kastushige, how was work?”
“Since I’m still a newbie…”
“Hm. Is that right…”
As Katsushige’s father’s temperament was more of a military man, this kind of hesitation could be said to be rare. Just with that, it’s probably some business that is difficult to express.
“Dad, is it something to do with this year’s Keijunkai?”
That’s why Katsushige was the one to ask. In another three days, they will be see each other and for him to specifically call… At this time, he couldn’t think of any other business.
“That’s correct. The truth is, Shiba Miyuki has just contacted Ogan. It seems she will be coming to the main house on the 29th.
“Miyuki-san will also be going on the 29th huh?”
Not only just the Ministry of Defense, currently, all the central ministries do not have New Year’s off. To be ready for any unforeseen circumstances, a set number of personnel report for work. After the repeated world outbreaks of war, the Ministry of Defense in particular has this setup over the entire year. However, the newcomer Katsushige has been given the traditional holiday from the 29th.
“But, so what?”
Katsushige asked curiously while remembering the face of his younger relative with the other-worldly beauty. At this Keijunnkai, all the family head candidates will be attending so it’s not a mystery that Miyuki will be staying at the main house after year end. Katsushige couldn’t understand why his father specifically called him about Miyuki’s circumstances.
Taking a turn for the worse, his father called his name. Katsushige was feeling increasingly suspicious. However, with his father’s next statement, that trivial doubt was completely blown away.
“We cannot allow Miyuki to attend the Keijunnkai.”
The words did not come out. It’s not that they were lost, but with doubt spreading in his heart, he was confused as to which to ask..
“...May I know why?”
In the end, what he chose was a common, generic question.
“At the Keijunnkai, Maya-san intends to name Miyuki as the next family head.”
“Is that so? How unfortunate.”
As Katsushige was answering, he was surprised that he wasn’t shocked.
Certainly, Miyuki was an outstanding Magician, and at the same time, she excelled in the mental interference type magic that was a special characteristic of the Yotsuba.
However, although it is said that importance is placed on a Yotsuba family head having mental interference type magic, this is not an absolute condition. The previous head Eisaku, and his predecessor Motozou were high-level mental interference type magic practitioners but the current family head who was chosen was not Miya who was a mental restructuring practitioner but Maya who did not have an aptitude for mental interference type magic. Furthermore, in terms of close range combat power, Katsushige believes that he excels over Miyuki.
Katsushige thought that the possibility of him being chosen as the next family head was certainly not low. However, he was not that shocked at having been informed that he wasn’t chosen...
(The truth is that he himself probably understood. Miyuki exceeds as a Yotsuba magician)
“Father, is it possible that you are doing this for me? It’s alright. I am already an adult so if it’s only just to give my blessing, I can do it.”
Although Katsushige was able to smile, it didn’t take that much effort.
It is not that.
His father, Osamu’s, reply however were instead strong words of denial..
“At the Keijunnkai, Maya-san intends to name Miyuki as the next family head. However, we will not allow that to happen.”
“Father…… don’t tell me that you intend to rebel against the current family head and the Yotsuba?”
Katsushige strongly criticised.
“Publicly, the next family head is decided by the Main Family head and the branch family heads . If you think about the influence the main family head has on the entire family, substantially, the next family head is decided by said family head. For example, if the branch family heads all choose to support me, I do not think I would be able to get the support of the entire family. I am sure that you understand at least that much.”
Against Katsushige’s predictions, Osamu was nodding inside the screen.
“I understand. I also think that Miyuki will become the next family head and I don’t intend to go against this although I do think that you would be suitable.”
“...What do you mean then?”
“Miyuki becoming the next family head is inevitable. However, it is still too early for that.”
“With Miyuki being chosen as the next family head, I don’t think that it means that Maya will immediately retire.”
“I am saying it is too early for Miyuki to be chosen as the next family head”
Katsushige did not understand the true meaning of what his father was saying. He could understand that it was too soon to become the new family head. However, what harm was there in being simply named as the successor?
“There is no problem with Miyuki herself. She will become a magician worthy of being the Yotsuba family head.”
Osamu’s words made Katsushige more and more confused.
“...then, what is the problem?”
“The problem is Miyuki’s guardian.”
“Tatsuya-kun? Certainly there could be a problem with him as a magician, but in terms of his actual ability as a combat magician, there is no room for doubts. As taurus silver, he contributes greatly to the Yotsuba’s finances, and above all, he is Japan’s trump card, being a strategic class magician. Compared to his [Material Burst, Itsuwa Mio-San’s [Abyss]’s power and even its input requirements are restrictive.
“It is that Material Burst which is the problem. That magic is too powerful. Because it was used in the southern part of the Korean peninsula, More than myself, you who work for the Ministry of Defense should know the kind of diplomatic negotiations that took place with the anti-Japan military alliances.”
“Certainly, that had happened, but, at the same time there is an increase in activity behind the scenes towards the conclusion of a defense treaty. Among the countries sounded out for an alliance included the New Soviet Union. Although it is a minus that tensions with the USNA has increased, within the ministry, it is thought that the restraint put on the surrounding countries is a plus.”
“If more value is being placed in those kinds of political transactions, then even more so, we need to remove that man from the center of the Yotsuba so that we do not become dragged into the expectations of politicians. For this, we need more time. Now, if Miyuki is named as the next family head, that man will be by her side. That will be the root of our Yotsuba’s future problems.”
Osamu’s assertions are, at first glance, reasonable. However, to Katsushige, he cannot help think that they are trying to justify avoiding this problem head on because of the emotions involved.
“Father… Father is, no, father along with all the other branch family heads, why do you wish to go to those lengths to exclude Tatsuya-kun?”
Osamu’s expressions vanished from his face. He may have also intended to hide his agitation. However, that emotionless mask was not something that had happened yesterday. Katsushige could see that the dregs of these sentiments were accumulated over the course of many years.
“That overwhelming power is a danger to the stability of the world. We seek a power in which no one will become a victim. We do not wish for the power to shake the world.”
“However, surely that isn’t Tatsuya’s responsibility.”
“We don’t intend for that man to bear that responsibility. Leaving our responsibility aside, we will seal that man, that magic.”
Katsushige realized that persuading him was useless.
“ーーwhat would you have me do”?”
Katsushige decided that all he could do was to avoid meaningless collateral damage.
“Mashiba and Shizuka are already moving to confine him”
“Kuroba-dono is not?”
Katsushige asked out of surprise. Both the Mashiba and Shizuka families did not specialize in intelligence. They probably had the same abilities as the rest of the Ten Master Clan families, but within the Yotsuba, the Kuroba specialized in intelligence. As the maneuvering involved with confining a target demanded subtle actions, he thought it was unnatural that the Kuroba would not be involved.
“The Kuroba family also approves with the removal of Shiba Tatsuya. However, Kuroba-dono has said he will restrain himself from meddling as his children hold that man in great regard.”
“Is that right… then, what specifically will we do?”
After the explanation that seemed like all the branch families were in agreement, The branch families, possessing extremely effective war potential, will fall into the actual work. It seemed that he would not just be feeling anxious in the future, but Katsushige had decided that his role would be to hold the damage to a minimum. To that end, he needed to know the plans.
“There is no need to injure Miyuki. Our objective is always confinement. It is enough for him not to make it in time for New Year’s.”
Katsushige was a little relieved that the plan was more peaceful than he thought.
“Your turn will come on the 31st. If the confinement works till then, fine. In case Mashiba-dono and Shizuka-dono fail, you will be our last defense.”
“Please tell me the details. Once I understand, Mashiba-dono and Shizuka-dono’s plans as well.”
In answer to Katsushige’s query, the details of the conspiracy was told from the mouth of his father.
