Sound Horizon – Roman

Before I say anything more about this album, I just want to say this: This is my favorite album of all time! Märchen is slowly comming up to a standstill, but this is still the Sound Horizon album that I have listened to the most! It has a lot of stories, and you feel like there is real love and thought put behind this from the singers and also Revo who wrote it all.

Not all is ever made clear, and fans still try to figure out just how all of it can fit together. This Album is in my eyes, a masterpiece! It even had a manga made out of it! And that manga makes me cry for each chapter! Some of the stories are not big, but they are told with such a feeling that we feel with the characters in the songs. The young girl that is loosing her sight, the man that lost an arm in the war and is tossing his life away for revenge and we also see different possibilities in life, a woman that looses her child in birth, children that looses their mother in birth, and also how the father’s left will deal with it. Will he hate the child that took his loved one away? Or will he embrace it as the last gift his wife left him with?

Bravery, cowardice, hate and love, Roman dwells into all of this, and gives us stories that in some ways, are all linked together in this, the 5th horizon.

I couldn’t find all the songs translated, that is why I will link to the White Crow site, where you can find most lyrics of Sound Horizon in english! But I will post all the songs here anyway, and the ones that is not translated will just be the live, since Sound Horizon lives are awsome!

I will on some of them also add link to the manga online, since nothing will help better in understanding the songs than that ^.^

Asa to Yoru no Monogatari – The story of the morning and the night (Eng)

Hiver Laurant is a being that died before he was born. (That will be explained a little in the next song) and since he can’t leave the border between life and death, he sends out his two servants to see if there somewhere in the world is a story of him comming to life. Since he is dead I guess they can’t mean the story of him dying, so it seems that all the stories has some connection to Hiver. Either it is all bound together by the name Hiver or Laurant, or it is different realities and they search for the ones where he were able to be born.

In the manga he says that he is comming to the world, so they might have been sent out to look for the story where he can be born also.

I will add the manga link here. But the first chapter is about the two first songs.

Honoo – Flame (Eng)

A woman is chased out of her town as it is raged by was, and this might once more be a referance to the wars in the second chronicle. In the manga it is told that the men protected the town long enough to let the women escape, and the woman’s husband or boyfriend probably died then.

By the strain she ends up loosing her unborn child, and the rest of the song is his funeral. She tries her best to keep happy, as death and life is a never ending repeating circle. In the manga, I think it is her aunt that says that she can one day try again, but in the end she finally breaks down as she knows that even if she one day can try again, it would not be with her loved one.

She bury him with twin dolls to keep him company in death, swaying with joy is Violette and wet with sadness is Hortense. So for those who still have not understood it, the still born child is Hiver Laurant, who died before he was born. I acctually didn’t hear before that he sings in the background of the song, but it just makes this song more touching. But is he supposed to be Hiver? Or is he supposed to be his father singing with his mother?

The last few lines and the new melody that starts there makes me wonder if it is like in the manga, and that Hiver recognizes his mother’s voice, as he watches the stories sent from the two dolls.

Miezaru Ude – The Phantom limb (Eng) (Manga)

A man served under the general Albers Alvarez in one of the wars from the second Chronicle. His name is Leon Laurant, and he comes into a fight with a man named Flambeau Laurant. Leon looses his arm, and starts drinking to chase away the memories and nightmares of what happened. In the end his lover leaves him, as she is afraid he will end up killing her and their unborn child if he goes into a new drunken rage. After this he uses all his money and power to find the man that took his hand, and soon he hear news of him.

He goes to kill the demon that has haunted his nightmares for years, and he is shocked to see just what has happened to him. The Laurant with flaming hair sits in the bar, drunk, fat and repulsive. With one eye and one hand, he had become a drunk man that disgraced himself before everyone. Leon sees that he even has a lover by his side that he keeps hitting, and he thinks back to how he had acted towards his own lover.

In a few seconds he is overpowered, as he sees before him just how he himself had almost become. He can’t even lift the sword to kill this man that was far from as glorious as he had remembered.

Then a new man comes in, Lauracin attacks and kills the red Laurant, and as the red Laurant’s son runs off to revenge his drunken father, Leon is left alone there to think over what he had tossed his life away on. He hated a man that attacked him in war, but that man had himself been attacked, and had lost both his hand and eye, that man had also wronged Lauracin, who hated him even more than Leon. And then the hate continues, as the red Laurant’s son runs after to kill his father’s killer.

Leon want’s to stop the hate, but how will he continue now that his life is left with no meaning?

Norowareshi Houseki – The Cursed Jewel (Eng)

Other than the names, one of the red threads trough this album, and also into a lot of the other songs, is the red jewel that brings death to it’s owners, even the reaper fell to it (If it is Alvarez or the red Laurant is not certain) and it might even have belonged to the woman from their Stardust song.

It seems that the man that found it first were a kind man, and when he found it he just wanted to use it for his dear sister. But the owner of the mine kills him, and his sister waits for him. It also says that she is not married, but I don’t know if it was just at the time, or if she never did marry. There is also a manga chapter of this, but it has not been translated yet. If she never married, did that mean that she loved her brother?

But it seems she is a doll maker, and it might have been her that made the dolls for Hiver? I also think that Hiver had the jewel, as he has a broach with a red jewel in it.

Hoshikuzu no Kawahimo (A Leash of Stardust) (Eng) (Manga)

Etoile is born with bad sight, and as she gets older her sight will fade. She live alone with her father, as her mother probably died in childbirth. It is not said right out, but her father is one armed, so in the manga at least, Leon Laurant is her father, and it shows that he returned to his lover and even though she died, he has shaped up and found a new reason for living.

One day he finds a big dog to take care of his daughter the day she goes blind, and the two of them soon becomes inseperable.

But she hates her name, since she can’t understand why she should be named Etoile (star) when she have never seen one. But her mother meant her name in another way, that Etoile would be a warm and gentle light for her father.

Then one day, Pleut, her dog dies, and in the end of the song the voice that sings as Pleut is also the same voice as her mother singing in the beginning of the song. Does this mean that Pleut were her mother reborn to come and take care of her and her father?

A puppy is born from Pleut, and Etoile takes care of it as she did it’s mother.

Hiiro no fuusha – Scarlet Windmill (Eng)

A town is attacked, and a boy grabs the hand of the girl he loves or care for. I am not sure of the relationship between them, she could have been his sister. They escape trough the forest as the attackers comes after them. Then she is grabbed and pulled up by a warrior on horse, and in fear, the boy escapes and leaves her. He regrets this, and if he were reborn and went trough this again, he would stay and die together with her.

This boy is also thought to be the boy in the single that came out before Roman, and also the killer that killed the red Laurant. If so, then the red Laurant was the man that took the girl away, and in the manga his son is also the son of that girl, and it is not known if it was rape or if she did fall in love with him.

Tenshi no Chouzou – Sculpture of an Angel (Eng) (Manga)

This song tells of the sculptor Auguste Laurant, who lost his wife in childbirth, and after that he keeps working each day for the rest of his life to make a sculpture of an angel in the image of his late wife. He has not once seen the face of his son, as he started to hate the life that his wife had given birth to at the cost of her own life. He dies in the end, as he is able to finish his angel, and he dies before the smiling statue.

Unlike the story with Leon Laurant, who also loses his wife, Auguste can’t see the child as a good thing. In his eyes it is the son that took his wife away, and he never wanted anything else than her. In the manga she was already sick, but she wanted to give birth to their child, since it was his and hers.

It is a short song, and not with much story, but it is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Jimang does a wonderful work, and all the feelings goes trough to the ones listening to this song.

Utsukushiki mono – Beautiful things (Eng)

This one is one of my favorites, but that is just because I am a big sister, and my little brother is one of the most important persons for me. If anything were to happen to him, I would be desolated. So I feel the sorrow of this song, a girl that lost her little brother early to sickness, and she keeps playing the song he liked. How this is linked to the other songs is that the little brother’s name was Laurant.

Yorokobi to Kanashimi no Budoushu – The wine of Happiness and Sadness (Manga)

Sorry that I couldn’t find a translation on this, but there is a manga chapter for it! ^.^

Loraine de Saint-Laurent is from a rich family, and she gets her own wine field when she is old enough. With that wine field she also have a man and his son serving there, and she falls in love with him over the years. Her mother dies, and her father marries again with a spoiled woman that just wants him to buy her things. Loraine is in dispair as she finds out he has used up all his money on his new wife and wants to marry her away since he either can’t or don’t want to take care of her anymore.

She runs away with her lover, but her father hire a assassin to kill him, and she is soon brought back and she finds out her father ordered the murder of her lover. She then leaves again, and as she sees the assassin that took her love away one day, she kills him, before she travel back to the wine field that both she and her lover had loved. She never marries, and spend the rest of her life making wine there. The wine also makes a cameo in the phantom pain, as Leon uses the last of his money to order the best wine they have, and he calms down as he tastes the wine named Loraine.

This is a sad song too, and in the end, there really is not a happy end. The assassin also seems to be the man that goes trough some of the songs in Elysion, and maybe also the assassin that killed Alvarez, but we can’t be sure about that.

Tasogare no Kenja – The sage at dusk

I love this song!! It is my happy song! Savant is cheering up a woman that seems down, and it seems his way of cheering her up is just to say that: hey! Your life is bad, but you are a hundred times better off than the people in the other songs! XD

I don’t know if this links in to the other songs with other than them being mentioned, but no one knows who Savant is, and the girl might be one of the ones earlier. And in the end there seems that someone has just found Savant, and recognizes him as Christophe. I read somwhere that this could be a man from one of the earlier albums, but I don’t remember where I read it…

Man that guy can move XD In his special own weird way XD

11-moji no Dengon – the 11 lettered message

As the stories starts, so they end. And with Rikki once more singing as the mother of Hiver, but this time she died, and the child lives. She sings her last encouragment for her child, and wishes that he has a happy life. And in the text there are numerals written that when decoded will show the hidden message of the 5th story:

Become Happy

Once upon a time – chapter 1

This is the story that I mentiones earlier that I write on my iPad, I will post more if people like it ^.^ It is a little slow start, but it will start up a little in the next chapter XD The prologue is first, then follow the cut for the 1st chapter.

—————————————————————————

Prologue

 

What was the first fairytale you ever read or heard? All parents tell them to their children when they grow up.

It is mostly brutal stories.  Some of them have moral, while some just tell of how cruel life can be. What is really amusing is that some of the fairytales can get twice as brutal as the things kids see on TV and in games these days, but it seems that parents finds it ok as long as it is considered culture.

It was in late winter that it all started to change, and the countdown to the day the world’s view of fairytales would change forever started.

Enter the small town of Noelle, a small town a long way from everything else. Most of the stuff that happened first happened here. Not to say that weird stuff didn’t happened other places at this time, but if all of it should be covered in this story and to the same detail, we would never get this over with.

Noelle has an elementary school, but above that the children have to leave the town to get to their schools, but at least they had some good contact with the outside world.

This story starts off in the late of winter, just some time after Christmas. The weather had been really bad for a long time already, and the people of the town were trying to cope with it as good as they could.

First the temperature dropped to a low that had never been witnessed in that town since it was founded in the early 1880s. Then the snow came, and even school was cancelled for the time being. People had to stay inside, and there was an increase in deaths of the elderly that was unable to get protected enough from the cold outside.

Then it all happened. Over one night the entire town’s fate was changed as it for one night completely faded away.

For one night the town was gone from our world. A family that had been out of town for the night and just came back could swear that it had been gone when they came back. In panic they alerted the next town, but when the police finally listened to them and came to inspect it, the town was there again.

The people in the town had been sleeping and it seemed that all of them had fallen asleep at the same time, and woken up at the same time.

But some things were not the same.

Some people were still missing, while some of the ones still there could vaguely remember things that happened when they were asleep.

And the only thing to show that the town had been gone was that the houses looked thorn and old when they returned. And even though the town was in the deep snow and in the biting cold, roses had started growing over the entire town, like it had been in a warmer place for a long time.

The mysteries of this day are hidden from all of them, and many people left the town after this for their own safety. But the ones that remained to figure out the mysteries of this day, will not be disappointed.

But the truth might change their lives even further than living in Noelle already has.

争いの系譜 “Jihad of Iberia” ~Sound Horizon~

Well, I did the post on Märchen, and my awsomely cute and cool friend said that she wanted me to do more ^.^ (See what some sucking up can make me call you? If you want some too, please comment XD)

I don’t have time for Roman yet, but I have time for the single that got me interested in Sound Horizon, since Ike speaks english in the middle there, I got some of the story, and I liked what I heard.

So, first thing I did was find a translation, and I loved it more!!! Wah! It is such a beautiful and yet simple story. I love it! (But hey, I love everything where the demon is not the bad guy but humanity sucks XD)

The Genealogy of the Conflict

The world of humans is always in conflict, and it seems to never end. Layla is born from parents with mixed religion, and when a war broke out between the two, her parents were either killed or killed each other. She were able to flee from the war, but fell down into a old cave when she was hit by a stray arrow.

In the cave she meets a demon that has been sealed there for centuries, but she shows no fear, and as she takes his hand, he asks her if she is ready for eternity together with him. (<3 I love good love stories XD)

Then she says something about suicide being a sin for humans, and I don’t know if that is meant with casting her human life away and becoming a demon, or if it refers to the end.

The Scarlet Demon on the Cobblestone Road

It seems Layla and Shaytan watches as time goes by, in hope for the war to end, but it just keeps going, and Shaytan watches as Layla starts to feel more and more powerless. Then he woves to protect her, as she had been the one to release him from his prison, and it was her light that made him remember his own name again.

He tells her that he will destroy that which she hates, if it is one of the two sides of the war, or the war itself.

The Invading and the Invaded

As the wars continue Layla finally finds the answer for her question. Who should the powerless hate? She could not hate any sides, since her parents were from each their. So to unite the humans, a unhuman enemy must make its apperance.

Shaytan and Layla become the true evil of the world, and the humans unite to fight them. And as the demons either leaves or are defeated, there seems to be peace in the land.

T.T I hope they didn’t die!!

I put videos with pictures here, but the second song has a music video, and if you have time, you should check out the live for this, I’ll set the link to them on the song names ^.^. If Sound Horizon songs are great on the album, they are a hundred times more on the concerts!! And I just found the concert translated too! XD Check it out!

Well, I will try and do Roman next XD Believe me, that thing is a mind fuck XD

Translations of Märchen on youtube!

I found really good and well done translations of Märchen over at youtube today! And I thought I should share them ^.^

01 Yoiyami no Uta (The Song of Dusk)

Hm, I got more of the story now, and it seems that Ido is a creature that like Märchen also died in the well or something like that, and it melted together with Märchen to wake him up again to take revenge. It also woke up the doll that he had as Elize. But I still don’t know for sure if the doll is just like that on it’s own, or if she is the same as Elizabeth but just after revenge for her love being killed. Or maybe it is the revenge wish of Therese? Märchen’s mother?

02 Kakei no Majo (The Witch at the Stake)

I’m not sure if I should feel sorry for the old witch/mother, it seems she sent her daughter out when she couldn’t feed her herself, and she regretted it later and became religious. Then when her daughter never returned she might have decided to not listen to god anymore and when a nun then came to her house she killed her, not knowing it was her own daughter. After that she inherited her dead husbands fortune, and might have wanted to make up for not taking care of her daughter with taking care of the hungry children…

Like I said, not sure how to feel about that old woman…

But still, Grethel sounds so cute!!

03 Kuroki Okami no Yado (The Black Landlady’s Inn)

Yes! This translation gave me the name of the story! I found it now! The man from the gallows tells off a landlady that has no more liver to make for her costumers, and she then goes out to steal livers from newly hung offenders, but in the end one of them comes back from the dead for his liver. I love stories like that XD But it seems that here she is tired of having to wait for the people to die, so she instead hangs her servant girl to then cut out her liver. I don’t know if she just hangs her, or if she gets her publicly executed for something.

But this song also goes back to their 2nd chronicle story, as many of the others also does. That damned shinigami guy keeps poping up all the time XD I should really read a translation of that album soon, I am getting curious XD

04 Garasu no Hitsugi de Nemuru Himegimi
(The Princess Sleeping in a Glass Coffin)

I would have been ashamed if I had gotten this wrong XD But most of what I thought was right ^.^ And I just love the scene where the prince asks for Snow White. “Dwarves, will you give me that corpse?” He does not think she is alive or anything, he just wants to marry a dead woman XD

Once again, love the revenge at the end, it is charming XD And I have been wondering what the hell that random conversation in the middle there is, but then after I saw the first song again, I wonder if it has anything to do with the man that Märchen became one with in the well? That creature was called Ido… and that man in the conversation was Idolfried. I do not know, but it is a thought.

05 Sei to Shi wo wakatsu Kyoukai no Furuido
(The Old Well at the Border that separates Life and Death)

AH! Things makes more sense now! I found the story of this one too! Mother Holle is a little like the Norwegian Askeladden fairy tales, of a brother that works well and does all right, while his two older brothers never wants to do any work at all, and in the end Askeladden gets all fame and glory XD

This story tells of a young girl that lives with her stephmother and younger stephsister (Cinderella much XD?) Her father died by falling down a well, and his name was Idolfried! Dum dum DA!!!!

She ends up falling down the well too, but she ends up in another world where Idolfried/Märchen allows her time to think about her revenge, and she helps some bread and a apple tree in the other world, before she comes into the service of Mother Holle. She helps her for a time, and as a reward for her good work, she is sent home covered in gold. Her little sister is not so lucky and comes back covered in pitch (it is something used in asphalt I think…) and she can never get it off.

It seems that the girls can see Märchen, since the daughter said she talked to her father. And in the end of the song the sound of the rats can point towards the black death from the prologue single. Does this mean that this is the same well that Märchen fell into?

And I love that Revo is also the rooster, bread and appletree XD

06 Bara no Tou de Nemuru Himegimi (The Princess Sleeping in a Tower of Roses)

I guess everyone knows the story of sleeping beauty XD? This is the one without rape, so that is at least a good thing. The only thing I didn’t get before in this song was the ending about the last curse, that she would abandon her daughter in the forest, I thought it could be the girl in the second song, but when I read it I saw that she had not been abandoned as a baby, but when she was older.

But there might be a hint at the end, as the melody sounds like one of the older songs, and the princess could be a character from the Elysion album, from the song Majo to Lafrenze and I don’t think it went well with her… she is found by the same witch that cursed her mother and raised by her to use her purity to protect the gates of Hades from opening. But she falls in love with Orpheus, who takes her virginity. But after she finds out he just needed to open the gats of Hades to get to his true love that had died. She curses him and if he turns to look at his true love while they escape, he would loose her again. And he so does 😛

07 Aoki Hakushaku no Shiro (The Blue Earl’s Castle)

Tells of a terifying man with blue beard that killed his wives and kept them locked up in a room. It seems here that one of his dead wives wishes for revenge, and Märchen uses the earl’s newest wife, her sister and two brothers as his tool to set the revenge into action.

But Bluebard has a big mental problem… first he says that he might have loved his first wife, but still he killed her. It sounds like he really enjoys killing his wives, but then he says that he won’t forgive the people that claimed someone to be a witch? Does he mean that someone said one of his wives were a witch and he wants to protect the reputation of his loved wife even if he himself killed her? Or could there have been a woman he loved before that died as a witch? Could that have been Märchen’s mother? Could Bluebeard then be Märchen’s father? I should have read the single songs better *faint*

Oh, and Bluebard also quite frankly says: he rapes his wives, then kill them, and if God had a hole, he would rape him too!

08 Haritsuke no Seijo (The Crucified Saint)

This one is just sad! Elizabeth never loved anyone else than Märchen and when she finally is reunited with him it is after her death… life is unfair… but that damned doll got hers!

And I am curious about the family relationship here… he wants her to call her father, but he is her brother? I do not want to dwell deeper in this right now -.-

The last song has not been translated yet I just found out XD So I will take that later, it is mostly just Märchen saying goodbye to the world T.T

 

What I am doing now?

Well, I am still just doing all I can to have fun when I should really just be reading japanese grammar each passing second -.-

I don’t know if I mentioned it earlier, but I fell and hit my knee… T.T It was owie… I would share a picture with you, but I am not evil -.- I had to spend almost a entire week home because my knee burned, and my other foot was not good to walk on.

But i am better now, and doing stupid things again ^.^

I am working harder on my japanese now, since I have applied for a japanese University for the next two semesters. But I didn’t get my first choice so I am a little nervous, since Hokkaido that I came into the line for, has the classes in japanese… But I really hope I can go! Together with my roommate!

But it all is a little scarier now, and the day I got the call that I was in line for Hokkaido was the same day that the earthquake and tsunami hit… It has all seemed a little dark after that, and I hope it will go well for Japan, and the ones in my class that was supposed to leave this month and the next but are not allowed.

——————————————————————-

I also bought a keyboard for my iPad! It is really useful! But now I have the problem that when I start to write on my computer I always push my finger at the screen afterward and hope it will work XD I have the manuscript on this, and I have started a whole new story to write on the iPad! It is a story set in a small town in a mordern world, but the backdrop of it is old fairy tales with some extreme dark twists! (I mean it… my hanzel and Grethel didn’t seem that bad until I wrote down for my friend what just happened O.o…)

The story starts off as the town of Noelle suddenly one day dissapears. For one entire day the whole town and the people that lived there were gone. The next day the town is back, and also most of the people living in it. But some are gone, and the lives of the ones that returned will never again be the same. No one remembers what happened, and the town itself suddenly looked like it had been gone for a lot more time than one day. And all around the town, blood red roses grows trough the cold snow.

So far I have three chapters, and the first one starts off around 4-6 years later, as most of the people have gone back to their own lives. First chapter is just a little start off, and the main characters are introduced.

Second chapter is Hanzel and Grethel, and the third is little red riding hood. I have also plans of having Sleeping beauty, and I want a Bluebeard version where Bluebeard wins in the end XD (Or sort of XD) I will also use other fairytales as I go, and if there is any good ideas out there I want to know! Please tell me your favorite fairy tale! Just be warned that I am a sick sick person and it might be turned darker than your wildest imagination XD

————————————————————————

Other than that… WAI!!!!!!!!! The trailer for the DVD release of Marchen has come!! WA!!! I want it so much and I want it now!!!

Oh God I will die laughing off the scene where Jimang is dressed up as a woman XD There is just something about that image that is priceless ^-^

But when the movie is done in the 3d theaters in Japan and finally is released, I will buy it! And I will post about it! ^-^

——————-spoilers for Kuroshitsuji manga beyond here!——————————

And the last I want to write about now… OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

I just read chapter 55 of Kuroshitsuji, that just came out, and if it wasn’t awsome enough with Ronald, Lizzie’s family, Snake and a Titanic like ship with zombie and Undertaker on, guess what just jumped on from a iceberg!

*Tries to find words to express the awsome that just made Anki’s head implode on itself*

Wah!! Grell is back!! And the real one this time!! Not the comic relief Grell clone that the anime made us look forward to!! I have a reason to live again!! (Other than waiting for the Grell and Will OVA… if it hasn’t come out yet…?) What I am looking forward to now is to see Grell being awsome! I am already happily suprised to see that Ronald as not as stupid as he seemed in the anime, this Ronald is awsome! And he kicks zombie butts like there is no tomorrow! And he has extra weapons! And he can mock Sebastian too!

I’m so happy now T.T

And I don’t own any of the scans here, they are scanlated over at the Bleach Asylum I think, go there and download if you want to read it all ^.^

And I am looking forward to see how all will go, how Grell and Ronald interact, and also how Sebastian and Ciel will take it if they do meet Grell again XD But since Lizzie is there it might go a little like the anime and they agree to work together since Ciel would work with anyone if he could protect Lizzie ^.^

Well… school tomorrow, and long post is long XP

Playing: Final Fantasy 4 XD

I feel a little ashamed to admit that I have not played Final Fantasy 4 before… I have it and 5 for playstation in a double feature, and I did start it, but being a teenager and also really shallow, I lost interest when I saw that the lead character was just a scary guy in a armor.

This is Cecil Harvey, the leader of the Red Wings and a Dark Knight. He might look really scary, but he is acctaully a really nice guy. If you look away from the part that he in the start of the game came back from maybe slaughtering a few defencless mages and then steal their crystal, but he just followed his orders from the man that raised him, and he thought it was a just reason behind it. But then he by himself betrays his Country, to protect a little girl he himself was the reason for loosing her mother. He fights for what he feels is right, without thinking about his own life or consequences for his future.

I were fresh off from Final Fantasy 7 and 8, and being a teenage girl, this scary looking guy did not appeal to me. (I’m stupid…) But I am playing the game now, and even thought it reminds me a lot of Final Fantasy 9, I love the story! It is basic and I love the old Fantasy feeling it gives, something I also loved a lot from FF9. The lines feels dramatic and weird at times, but that is what oldtime RPG games should have! It just adds to the feeling! (“You spoony bard!!!)

And if I as a teenager had continued, I would have had a jaw drop when Cecil had a job change XD

I played Dissidia and also watched the artwork of him from Dissdia 2, and of main characters in the Final Fantasy line, he is acctually the most beautiful one, if you think of it from  a more female point of view. He even wears lip-stick for gods sake!! He is one of the only times I have seen a man look this womanly and still be as manly as they come!

I really liked using him in dissidia, but I still can’t get a hold of his ex mode, I were sitting with my cousin and just staring when I used it the first time, and was something like this: O.O No!! Cecil is having a freak out!!! Or a seizure!!

But I love his relationship with Golbez in Dissidia XD Istill haven’t finished ff4, but the biggest thing was sort of spoiled for me since Dissidia already told me that Cecil and Golbez were brothers. But Cecil… I think you suddenly got a big brother complex… you should get that fixed.

The big reveal in FF4 is that the evil bad guy is Cecil’s big brother, who left him to die as a baby since he had been controlled by a evil Lunarian to think that Cecil were the reason their mother died. Golbez then went on to be controlled for great evil, and he don’t recognize Cecil as his brother before he becomes a Paladin and Golbez can see his face.

Now this is where I am having a lot of fun! First we hear from another Lunarian that Cecil looks like his father when he was young, and it is also later said that Golbez also looks a lot like his father (Not sure where this is said, I read it on FF4 wiki) Then it all goes weird, since the King of Baron, who took Cecil in, recognize him as his mother’s son by how he looked (as a baby mind you… ) so like his mother. So… either Cecil looked like his mother as a baby… or he looks like both his mother and his father?! Is this why both Cecil and Golbez has white hair O.o? But I think it is funny that it is said that Golbez looks like their father and Cecil their mother XD.

I also noticed that both the plot and the world is realy simillar to Final Fantasy 9. The mist comes up now and again, they have simillar flying ships. And then comes the plot of finding out the lead character is from another place than the rest, and also that his sworn enemy is his own big brother. And then you fight someone else than you thought you would in the end XD

Maybe FF9 is the future for the FF4 world? Even the name Eidolons are kept for the summons! And It is said that the Lunarians are sleeping, while on Terra in FF9 the race that the genomes were said to have been build to take in the souls of have been resting for centuries. For Kuja, Zidane and Mikoto to be decendants of Golbez or Cecil does sound interesting XD

Yeah, I am just reaching for stuff here, it is really fun.

But before I end this post, I will just share a link to something really funny! After I played Dissida I started to looks around for stuff on deviantart, and I found a fan comic based on dissidia with inspiration from fairytales, and it is glorious!! It even made me like The Warrior of Light! Who is Snow Light by the way XD Cecil is Cecilrella XD
