||Sending this question directly to the site rather than email. Don’t think it reveals a major metaphor. My Japanese friend insists there is a hidden reason Takumi calls Urd ‘Indigo’. True?
||The first component of indigo in japanese is ‘ai’. You can probably figure out what your friend (and Takumi) really mean by that...
||Urd finding Takumi at the gravesite really made the book for me...
|Not to nitpic but..
||That demonic 'helpers' lie outside of the doublet rule and the other deaths I understand. But doesn't Takumi's act in the mountains create some problems?
||... It may indeed...
||Not to be a perv but -- Belldandy crawling toward Keiichi after everyone left to Sea World!
||Hmm, I see...
||Think I get it now, the 'corundum' flakes Skuld's referring are actually rubies and saphires Ne?
||We would say so.
||Please settle and argument. The mon on Takumi's coat - is that a nod to ANOTHER well know anime?
||If by that you mean it's intentionally identical to Jin's - you are right.
|Mon - hate to be out of the loop.
|| Hate to be out of the loop . . . or display my ignorance but . . . Jin's Mon?
||The post refers to the famous Samurai Champloo character Jin.
||URD is AWSOME in this! Just what I've been looking for. The best user OMG story Ive seen!!!
||Great story. The place where Takumi travels to - it sounds like a specific place. Is it?
||Takkoku no Iwaya and Oyasu Gorge are definitely real places.
||One question - does this story go ON??
||Saw a prior request by this site on another board. Also it seems that a detailed part of the book is located close to the region of Japan devastated by the recent earthquake. Do you know people in that area?
||Yes, I did. In Rikuzentakata. I urge all those in a position to help to do so.
||Suggestions for the above.
||Discussions with those close to the site suggest the Red Cross is still probably the best (for North America)
|The mysterious black stone
||The black stone Takumi gives Urd. Does it really exist?
||As Takumi indicates, Schorl ( a relatively common stone) really has been used to ward off evil due to its piezoelectric properties
|| Urd and Keiichi talking is his shed . . . that scene was really great . . .
|Keiichi and Belldandy
|| Great book but I wish we knew a little more about what happened during Keiichi and Belldandy's afternoon togeter . . .
||If book 2 ever gets done . . .
||Urd looking east over the ocean, Takumi and Urd practicing over the shore cliffs, Keiichi fighting the demons, Urd facing Hild . . . oh and Urd and Takumi's scene at the grave.
|| Is Sorano meant to be Lind's blood relative or rather a 'sister in the corp'
|Urd is a badass
|| I am utterly through being careful . . . you know at that point somebody's going to get burned!
||When Urd and Takumi ' fell ' I had tears in my eyes.
||I felt the same way when she put her arms around the sphere (with relief!)
||Yeah, no one can accuse Urd of not earning her happiness
||Saw this on another forum of the book and wondered myself - what is corundum (Skuld)?
||Expensive aluminum oxide. Sapphires and rubies are forms of corundum.
||Thanks for replying . . .
||Urd facing the storm!
||Question on series: loved the book, but what is it's real relation to the various incarnations of OMG?
||Sorry about the late postin. Effectively the books are consistent with events of the Anime, OVA, and Movie. It differs from parts of the Manga.
||I've heard second in the the Terran(?) series is coming out. When? How big in total?
||General release of the first 6 chapters of the second book is scheduled for December. The entire series is planned as 4 books and two prequels.
|new chapters - beta
||Thanks for forwarding the chapters of book2 - looks Fantastic (I'm a big B &K fan)
||Yes, definitely a central theme of book 2
||Is the statue Lind bows to a relative? A companion?
||Answered in book 2.
|| Not sure if this is the right place for this, can I be posted to the beta list for book 2.
||Yes, send email to the address below and you will be updated.
||Loved the book. I've seen comments on some boards of more to the series. Is this true?
||The second book of the series is due out in 2013.
