Roast...

hot

current mood: hot

-_-;; The heat's back today and tomorrow... Hopefully that's it though. I'm just not used to this sort of heat anymore. >_<; I think it's a good thing I don't live in Japan anymore. I don't think I could handle the heat and humidity out there. ^^;

Anyhow, the Kokumono timeline has been updated. I filled in stuff from story 2 especially, so if you're curious about what the anime missed... some of it's written out there. (A bunch of other stuff has also been added).

I'm not completely sure about the info from the last SS (the latest The Beans magazine) since I only skimmed through the scans. I should have my copy hopefully tomorrow or the day after and will go through it more thoroughly then. (Deals with Shouka's past and the Wolves).

More Shouka! That is exciting :-) It'll be really interesting to learn more from that time period.

I hope the heat lets go and you get better weather soon.

(P.S. I have a question, and it's really silly, but it's been bothering me for a while--and I probably should know the answer to it...-- Why does Ryuuki refer to himself as "we" in the anime? I know he has some childhood trauma and I wonder if it has to do with that, or if it's part of his whole don't-let-people-know-that-you're-smart act, or maybe I'm way off the mark *ponders*)

It's called the "royal we" that is often used by monarchs etc. when referring to themself. FWIW, there are a number of different ways used in the anime/novels to refer to self that unfortunately can't be translated well because English is limited in that area. Offhand, I can think of: watashi (most common), watakushi (more formal than watashi), ore (Ensei and Kouyuu - very rough male usage), boku (Hakumei - young male usage, very common), warawa (Shuurei's mother - humble female usage, archaic), maro (Official Wa - "we superiors", archaic), yo (Ryuuki)

Thank you so much for the fantastic explanation. It all makes so much more sense now :-)
