Meanwhile, Holmes is a prosecutor and Ryuunosuke is dead!?

…No, not quite.  These are stills from this year’s no-fourth-wall Special Court video.  Although Capcom hasn’t released the video yet, they’ve provided these images to Game Watch, giving us a look at the London courtroom.  As for what’s actually going on, Twitter user @hoso_boso gave a few hints, and C-R member Ash translated:

Ryuunosuke and Susato appear in the English court “because of DGS which is planned for a 2015 release”(screenshot 1). Then Holmes appears, who upon seeing Ryuunosuke blurts out “But aren’t you that dead Italian head cook?!” (See screenshot. He’s dead! But this will be explained later).

Holmes thinks that Ryuunosuke was the Italian head cook because of a certain telegram. The contents of that telegram? The truth behind this case? That’s what the Special Court is about.

There’s a secret to the telegram, but the story is mostly about Holmes’ silly mistakes.

As for how the characters appeared:

  • Holmes -> Natural airhead. Might describe him as a “clean Luke Atmey”
  • Susato -> Active, but can be a bit silly too.
  • Ryuunosuke -> Comments on and corrects both of them
Holmes also makes a comical meta-comment at the very end, which is very Takumi-like apparently.

Here’s hoping the full Special Court is released soon!

Danganronpa, FLCL?

Dangan Ronpa: You are drafted to attend a prestigious school for an outstanding talent of yours, what talent would that be?

Hmm, as much as I’d like to say it’s writing, I’ll probably be admitted because of my programming skills.

FLCL: Do you play an instrument? If not, what instrument are you interested in playing?

I’d love to learn how to play the piano. I used to do it, but given my attention span as a child, I went nowhere with my piano lessons. If I could turn back time and redo that particular portion of my childhood, I would, ahaha.

Aboard the hype train!

Took a good night sleep and come back up with my mind and ears cleared! And OMG! My translation SERIOUSLY suck! Note to self for a thousandth time: Don’t attempt translation at 3-4 AM. >_<”

PS. Well, it still sucks to a certain extent since my English is sucky to its core, and I have no TC or QC for this. Please bear with me then. Sorry. >_<”

aunden asked:
Hello! I'm a relatively new addition to the Tales of the Abyss fandom, since it was only a little while ago I was made aware it had come out on the one console I own. I've been poking through fandom things since, and recently I came across your character analysis of Jade (post/85363333897). While I agree with some parts of it, there are other parts I disagree with, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in having a conversation about it, or at least hearing what I have to say? (1/2)

(2/2) It’s an issue I (rather unexpectedly) feel quite strongly about, so it’d mean a lot if you were willing to listen. I look forward to hearing your response!

Hmmm, considering the stress that some replies on that essay have caused, I’m not sure if I should be entertaining anything of the sort, but it has been months and if anything, I guess I should be in a better state to handle any replies. If this is about how I worded the essay, then please refrain from telling me so, as I’m aware that it came across as “strongly worded” to some people, especially those with a contrary opinion.

I’ll check out what you have to say and reply to it to the best of my ability, as long as it’s not an attack on my person. However, I reserve the right to ignore it if I deem your reply to be another ad hominem attack, if not an utter display of stupidity.

I apologize if I sound condescending or something to that effect, but in all honesty, I do not have the patience for anything less than intelligent discussion when it comes to an issue I care about. It’s all I ask for when someone replies to anything I’ve written, especially when the said piece is something I’ve poured my heart and mind into. That is all.

so i saw the graces comic anthology chapter was going up and my friend andrea gave me a translation?? so i added this in case you guys want to know what they’re saying!! ‘u’

also known as asbel will fall for anything especially if they’re glasses.
