2ch comments about HakuYou White Wings

Comments are finally coming out for HakuYou's latest novel. It seems most people were waiting for the no-spoiler period to end before saying anything. ^^;


Not a heck of a lot's been said to date, but here's the list of the various comments:

- possibly similar in feel to Matou [Honeymoon]? It was quite interesting. I was happy that the story about Lydia's first love [SS in book 8] came out. If the actual person were to have appeared, no doubt Edgar would have killed him.

But for there to be an issue even before pregnancy...

- For the 'let's hurry and have kids' to be an act.

Does this mean that it's definite the prophet is Danell?
I wonder how Patrick managed to find Danell.

- This book was so interesting there's no comparing it with the previous book.
I was thinking that the second generation would be making an appearance around the next book, so this was beyond unexpected.
Kelly's comment 'Fast...' was too perfect, I laughed.

- Nico and Raven are a good combo as always.
I'm glad to see Raven becoming more and more like a person.

In general, the story development is the same as always, but the plot progressed more than I expected.
I didn't think much of the last one, but this time the story was really good.

- As always, Patrick's conviction that he's right is annoying

I didn't find things too off with the illustrations. Back in the early part of the story, there were occasional shoujo manga-like illustrations like there are this time.

But not being able to have kids would be too sad, so please do something about that......

- This time was really interesting!
So much so that I couldn't help wondering what was with 'mirror'
This balance really is good, isn't it?
This feeling is the best

- on pg 274, the 'way to remember' [? hard to say for sure how this is to be translated; no context and only a partial phrase], is that grammatically correct? Or is it a typo?

- I haven't managed to get the book yet, but why can't she get pregnant?
I can't help wondering about it, so please tell me.

- It's been a while since the story set my heart racing. Edgar returned briefly to his previous annoying self.

But the new charas - the three sisters and Danell - are good.

- [re typos]
There were others
The prophet/seer (one who makes predictions) became the prophet/oracle (one who gets messages from God)

[re preg]
If you want to know, I'll tell you.

According to the self-proclaimed prophet, apparently, the prophet's betrothed cannot bear another man's children.


Combined with the previous comments, we have... very little about the actual story. ^^; Lots of questions are brought up by what's mentioned, some of which might be clarified in previous vols. Likewise, some of this will depend on intended meaning of what's said. Not sure if I'll try checking out blog posts next or not. Might be worth waiting for my copy to eventually get here instead. ^^;

Lord! Suspense is all over me now >__<

Lydia can't have children with Edgar! *hysterical* But was her mother Aurora was betrothed to the prophet? No, if my memory serves me right, she was arranged to be married to some son of the head village...

I can't wait... Just read Ouran, gah!!!! Talk about having too many fandoms.. *v* *hides in a dark corner feeling guilty*

Thanks for the spoilers! :D

Aurora was both, wasn't she? Lydia should have been both as well (betrothed to the prophet and having Fergus as her fiance) except that that tie was supposed to have been cut when Aurora eloped. (Girls chosen to be the prophet's betrothed have another fiance chosen for them should the prophet not appear / to take care of them after the prophet's gone. Something along those lines, wasn't it?) In any case, this is why I want to read the story myself and see how those aspects may or may not fit in. There's also the question of whether Patrick might have brought someone in to try and trick Lydia et al again. Sort of like the whole bit with Brian. (...Actually, *technically*, I suppose Lydia was supposed to have been stolen away as a changeling and lived in Faerie, while Brian's sister would then have been betrothed to both the prophet and had Fergus as her fiance. But all that came to naught after Aurora eloped and then refused to let the na fir chlis take Lydia as a changeling.)

I've read it and like and I dont know whether I should say much here..
But like samantha said,lydia was told by the self-claimed prophet that if she's truly the prophet's betrothed, she can't have childern with Edgar!! Arghh!!! Why??? I'm really frustrated about this, poor Lydia! But its not that its confirmed that Lydia is the truthfully the betrothed.
Well, overall, I dont like this volume very much...
