  1. BlazBlue: Remix Heart & Variable Heart Discussion

    Here's the summary for chapter 16: http://amatsumugi89.tumblr.com/post/166245711828/blazblue-variable-heart-chapter-16-the-chapter Kokonoe seems rather ruthless in this chapter. Meifang accuses her of being interested in Mai and Bell because she wants to use them to smelt Takemikazuchi herself. This simply be Meifang's interpretation, but I suppose it would fit with the ruthlessness Kokonoe shows in the early games. She seemed to mellow out and be more caring in later games though (e.g. being determined to save Litchi in Litchi's bad ending in Continuum Shift). I suppose the fact Kokonoe doesn't sacrifice Mai could either be because she actually cares for her or because she never discovers the method required to complete Takemikazuchi's smelting.

    Here's the chapter 15 summary: http://amatsumugi89.tumblr.com/post/165176276998/blazblue-variable-heart-chapter-15-summary-the Nice to see that my guess about the capabilities of Vision were correct. Rin is able to replicate the effects of Ars Magus but not actual magic. Meifang wants to smelt Mai, a grimoire, and Bell, a PFD, in a cauldron order to complete her plans. Looks to me like she's trying to create a Black Beast.

    By the way, here's the recording of an event that occurred upon the release of the second volume of Variable Heart featuring Mori:

    Thank you very much for all of your download links Kukushi. The first page in the Dragon Age chapters tends to have some sort of announcement or comment that is removed in the tankobon version. Also I've spotted improvements in certain Remix Heart chapters in the tankobon version. There was one panel in the Dragon Age version where Mai's socks were missing and they added them in for example. The biggest difference in Remix Heart was that in chapter 22 they added two extra pages showing Shiori's inner struggle when she had to choose between fulfilling her mission and assassinating Jin or abandoning her mission and saving Mai.

    Rachel had lost that by the end of CF though. I think that she wasn't dying because of her being a vampire. Her ability to revive after all of Hazama's torture seems pretty similar to the way Fuzzy's regeneration worked. Compared to the ability to literally reshape reality that you get from being an Onlooker or being able to shrug off whatever inconveniences you thanks to the Power of Order, I do not think that Vision is particularly powerful. We've only seen Rin copy some pretty mundane abilities by BB standards and she acknowledged that her copies were inferior to the originals. Shiori made it sound like Vision lets its user instantly learn how to perform a technique. This would mean that the person in question would need to be able to perform that technique in the first place before they replicated it. Taro's strings are an application of Ars Magus, which most people can use. And Vision is limited by the ability of its user, which is why Rin is not able to match Houichirou's presence, since she doesn't have the capacity to produce an aura as threatening as his. I think that if Rin used Vision to try and replicate Sorcery for example, then the best she could do would be to create a pale imitation of that specific effect using Ars Magus since she lacks the capacity to actually perform Sorcery. Her ability is versatile but I really doubt it's anywhere close to the truly broken powers that other characters have.

    Thanks a lot for the raw. Mai really lost her temper when her father called her a coward. She's normally very polite, but she can become aggressive when pressured and insulted. The same thing happened with Meifang.

    Mai appeared really isolated as a child and always thought about her father. If she had a loving mother one might have thought that Mai wouldn't have felt as alone as she did before she went to the academy. The fact she was so desperate for her father's affection and approval made it seem like she didn't receive any affection as a child. The fact that Houichirou was so powerful does help explain why Mai had an inferiority complex towards him and considered it so difficult to earn his respect. I think the fact Houichirou was able to easily take away Gallia Sphyra from Mai shows that he was really strong. So I believe that he really was able to fight off Azrael. He was probably about as powerful as Kagura, who was also able to go toe to toe with Azrael. By the way, he clearly values training, since he ensured that Mai trained in martial arts, melee combat and the Kirihito assassination techniques since childhood.

    Chapter 12 summary: http://amatsumugi89.tumblr.com/post/161587057048/blazblue-variable-heart-chapter-12-mei-fang-is Interesting to see that Mai's mother is alive and well. Her absence from all of Mai's flashbacks except the one where she was an infant had made me assume that she had died. Mai certainly took after her.

    Thank you very much for providing us with the raws Kurushii. Poor Mai gets called dekachichi, meaning "huge tits", by Ragna. In addition, Platinum calls her dekaoppai and Kagura calls her kyonyuu-chan, so it looks like all her nicknames mean "huge breasts". I guess these fit with the description of kyonyuu bishoujo, meaning big-breasted pretty girl, that she gets in promotional material.

    Perhaps Trinity's plan will get explained later. Maybe she was planning to share that body with another soul but because she found two children that needed a new body decided to put them in there instead. But this body is a two-seater. Something I found interesting is that the system being called LunaSena means that Luna and Sena are not the names of the children whose souls got put into Bell's body. It seems that the original identities of these children have been lost completely. This might also explain why Luna and Sena remained in a single body. Their body is meant to house two souls and they don't really mind sharing a body.

    It seems that the manga will be focusing a fair bit on Platinum's backstory. Which I suppose makes a certain amount of sense, since we never saw that in the games themselves. Sounds like Bell is desinged to house two souls. My guess is that she needs to receive two souls in order to get the LunaSena system up and running, which would fit with what we know from the games. Presumably we'll be seeing Trinity the souls of two children to fulfill the roles of Luna and Sena later. Bell's current personality is what emerged in order to defend the PFD but I guess it will disappear before that happens.

    Here's the preview of the next chapter. It's nice to see Mai using one of her distortions. I wonder if Fuzzy will end up dying; my guess is probably not because they won't want to have Mai be a killer. If Fuzzy ends up crippled by Mai's attack perhaps Meifang will finish him off.
