  1. I'm aware that the BlazBlue and XBlaze Izayoi's are very different (hence why I specified the spear). That is because they are two different weapons, even if they both exist in the same world. Remember the terms Murakumo and Kusanagi are also reused. All the Sealed Weapon: Izayoi means is that Armagus in some form existed before Nine's time. She did say she was "reviving" the technique after all.
  2. Yes, we do know this is true. In Mai's arcade mode she sees Platinum and calls her Bell, before remembering she goes by Platinum now. Why would she think Platinum is Bell unless that is Bell's body. Furthermore, when Jubei and Trinity explain Platinum's origin they mention that the vessel was empty, meaning Bell's soul is not in the body. Furthermore, I'm pretty sure they say Luna and Sena are humans near death, so how could Luna be Bell? No, Tsubaki has the original Izayoi. There is no replica. In CF Nine also says that Izayoi was one of the weapons that was used during the Prime Field War, which coincides with Phase Shift where she goes into more detail about it. In Phase Shift 3 Chapter 1 she mentions the war several hundred years ago fought against something conventional weapons could not work against. I will provide a few quotes. This is also where it is confirmed that Hihiirokane was made before the war with Izayoi (in the Age of Origin). "I've found the weapon that had been used to fight that something in Ishana." A weapon created by humanity to fight the something that couldn't be damaged by conventional weapons at start. "Your village has the same kind of weapon, doesn't it?" Her question was directed to Jubei. He was deeply aware that Nine didn't have any ill intention, but Jubei unconsciously frowned. "Hihi'irokane..." The ancient weapon itself originated from the age of beginning and had been handed down within Jubei's family. It wasn't currently in the possession of Jubei's family for a reason, but Jubei never knew that it was intended to fight that something which resembled Black Beast. "The one I found in Ishana was more recently made. According to the few remains of record, its name is..." Before Nine could tell the name of the relic... "...The Sealed Weapon Izayoi." Hakumen murmured and shook the heavy atmosphere. This is the Izayoi that would be passed down the Yayoi family and is the weapon that Nine based the Nox of off. Furthermore, even if Legacy Weapons were made during the Prime Field War, that doesn't mean all of them were from that time. Nothing confirms whether or not Izayoi (the spear), Murakumo, Kusanagi or Outseal specifically came from the Prime FIeld War when this type of thing has existed since long before that, as proven by Hihiirokane.
  3. Do we know Outseal was made during the Prime Field War? I thought only Izayoi was confirmed to be made during it. Hihiirokane was made before it in the Age of Origin and I'm pretty sure the timeframe for the creation of all the Legacy Weapons (including the original Outseal) is still unknown. I might be wrong about this but if you could provide a source that'd be great. I think the problem (even if I don't agree with it) is that Variable Heart is a monthly series. 3 chapters feels like a really long time because the fights been going on for 3 months from our perspective. I'm sure it will feel much more naturally paced on reread once it's completed.
  4. Here's Amatsumugi/Zedar's summary of chapter 10. Do you seriously think it will be that long? Variable Heart will probably be around the same length as Remix Heart, which was 25 chapters if I remember correctly. Regardless, the fight seems to be winding down since Mai is the only one who can make the kill and only has one or two shots of Outseal left. I imagine it will be no more than two chapters before the fight is over. Honestly this manga doesn't seem like it's going to have that much more happen in it. There are only three things that we still need to see. How Meifang ends up being defeated. How Bell ends up in the state that she will be in for Jubei and Trinity to put Luna and Sena's souls inside her empty body. How Mai ends up staying with Sector Seven and what happens with Taro and Shiori as a result. They can easily do that in 15 chapters.
  5. 1. I'm not sure what symbolism you think there is with Nu taking the sword. The only symbolism currently involved with Blood-Scythe is Ragna's connection to Rachel since it has her hair ribbons tied around it, which is literally the each character's most iconic item tied to each other. As for Nu's recovery, I don't think time is a factor. The issue isn't about physical recovery, it's that Nu is emotionally and mentally broken. She has lost the only thing of value in her life and doesn't even know that she's lost it. Remember her bio. Hobbies: thinking about Ragna. Values: Ragna. Likes: Ragna. Dislikes: everything else. Without Ragna there is nothing to so much as drive her to get out of bed. In the scene she is basically catatonic. Rewatch the ending scene. Nu doesn't even so much as blink when there is wind blowing in her face, she is completely unresponsive. That's not something that can simply be fixed by time. 2. I don't actually think the world really changed when Ragna created "possibility." From what we see the only things that actually happened is the people who were turned into seithr and became the Embryo have been restored and the world is able to move forward without any of the various resets that have happened throughout the series. None of that suggests a "restart" that changed the past in any way. Ikaruga was still destroyed, Jin is still unable to fight anymore etc. In fact, changing the past would inherently go against what Ragna was trying to do, create a future that people walk towards instead of trying to look back all the time. Remember "leave no regret behind." Whatever state Alpha was in or however it does or does not make sense, Ragna's actions probably have nothing to do with it. Honestly it could be as easy as she popped out of the Boundary in this time period like how Naoto got in.
  6. Ah the dreaded Alpha-01 discussion. I'm kidding. Since the ending text has the Greek letter for alpha in it this is the first time where discussing her is anything more than pure crack theory. Alpha is a very real possibility in the future. To me, the sword disappearing hints at one of two possible things. One, Alpha-01 (since she was wielding Blood-Scythe, or at least something similar to it, in her first artwork) or two, Ragna still exists in the real world somehow. Personally I like the second theory because of how it ties into Rachel's journey (and I hate the idea of someone else taking the sword now that it has Rachel's ribbons tied around it, making it a symbol of her connection to Ragna) but I do not find the first one any less valid. However I highly doubt it's in any way connected to Nu. Nu didn't seem like she was recovering, she seemed near-catatonic after losing the only thing that gave her life meaning (her memories of Ragna). Furthermore, I don't think it makes any sense for the 13th Prime Field Device to "awaken" as the 1st. If we ever do see Alpha it will be as her own character. Note that we have also seen Gamma-03's art as well so it's not like anything suggests Alpha is anything but what her name implies, unit number 1 (at least of those made in the current world).
  7. Ok. That makes more sense. When making that post I went back to PS1 and to see if they mentioned his eye color and they didn't but they did frequently mention Trinity's green eyes so that is consistent.
  8. I think his eyes change color when Terumi is in control. If you look at this image from PS1 Kazuma in Terumi mode does indeed have yellow eyes. Even if Kazuma is meant to be as close to Terumi as possible to be a suitable host, it's reasonable to assume that eye color doesn't matter. It is strange though that Hazama always has yellow eyes, even when he's separated from Terumi (the image is from Hazama's CF Act 2 Arcade mode), while Kazuma's seems to change. It is likely there just to have a visual indicator that Terumi is not in control, which is very important considering the whole separation to escape Mind Eater thing. Either that or Mori just made a mistake.
  9. Huh, I never even noticed that she disappeared from in front of the Azure Gate in the last shot of it. Thanks for pointing that out. Who knows what happened to her. I doubt even Mori knows this one since absolutely no effort or thought was put into Es's inclusion in CF (which is strange since all they would need to do is have her post-LM version pulled into this world after her possibility disappeared exactly like what happened to Naoto). Earlier she said some stuff (that I can't really remember) about how she must complete her duty of guarding the gate regardless of her personal interests which would suggest she should stay there. Does that mean her role has ended? If this Es is a "clone" so to speak made by the Azure she would have nowhere to return to since presumably there is the original Es living happily after LM. I doubt we'll ever get the answer to that along with the near-infinite number questions regarding Es because apparently it isn't important enough.
  10. But doesn't the one exception being the newest game imply that the status quo is changing? If they got Revelator on Steam before Rev 2, why can't we still get CF 2 or whatever?
  11. Ok but why should we expect the Steam version of the current console release to have that? If they want to release new content say next year or so we'll get a name then. Steam is just a port.
  12. What? Steam releases always come last, so any updates would be console first and therefore Steam wouldn't say anything about it. This is just Steam getting it's late version of the current Central Fiction. It does not mean anything about if new content will be added. Also, why would it have a new name?
  13. I'm confused. What about this makes it so that there won't ever be a future update?

  15. I don't think Carl has any memories of Ragna. It's implied that we only see a few of the people Ragna steals "desires" from and he got around to the rest of the cast offsceen. Plus it seems that whatever he did inside with the Azure at the end is what actually caused everyone to forget about him. As for Ada coming back, that's not how Ragna's use of the desires worked. Ragna created a world of "possibilities" but didn't magically grant everyone's wish. Otherwise the Ikaruga Civil War wouldn't have happened per Bang's wish (we know it still did because Bang was starting to rebuild it in the ending). His goal being pure or not doesn't matter. You know the saying "the road to hell is paved with good intentions." Carl is willing to do whatever it takes to restore Ada. In Act 3 of arcade mode he was perfectly willing to kill Noel to have his wish granted. He has also shown signs of seeing people as objects like Relius does. Even Relius himself has commented that Carl could surpass him and when Relius thinks something like that it means he sees Carl as walking along the same road. Furthermore, I would argue that Relius isn't actually a sadist. Terumi is a sadist because he actively takes pleasure in other people's suffering. Relius on the other hand simply does not care. He does exactly what he thinks is an appropriate action to acquire the data he seeks and only does so for as long as it interests him. He didn't hang Ada, he left her exactly as she was while he was experimenting on her because he got bored. Relius is nothing but a pure pursuit of science without anything to hold him back and Carl has already taken the first steps towards that same mindset. The only difference is their goals (Relius wants to create the perfect doll while Carl wants to make Ada human again) but that doesn't change anything.
