FB Neko Shigure

Oops. I just realised I forgot to update the What's New page. ^^;; I'll have to remember to put that up. In any case, Shigure's profile's now complete and up to the Neko Fanbook section. Shigure's... I guess he's Shigure. Definitely not easy to figure out and just plain different. Otherwise, I've also put in a translation for the month name rather than leaving it at just the poetic read so Kureno's month has also been roughly translated. The odd thing is, I'm not finding the month name written that way in the dictionary... Not sure why not or if maybe I'm not looking for it correctly. :-?

Otherwise, I'd been meaning to write up some brief thoughts about Kyo and Kyoko but it kept slipping my mind so I don't know how concisely I can write it up now but... When going through the previous volumes hunting for any other images of Kyoko's accident (all of the ones I've found to date only show her in a pool of blood on the ground except for the very first one with the car slammed into the wall) I ran into a scene where Shigure remarks pointedly to Kyo that it was as though he was afraid of the very act of getting to know (Yuki). I remember the very first time I read that scene I thought Kyo was flashing back to the scene where Yuki had collapsed from an asthma attack during the marathon, but later realised it might be Kyoko. However, that Kyo would feel that about Kyoko, and that he does know something about her accident makes me wonder if either Kyoko had met Kyo and the car suddenly came at them and so she shoved him out of the way, or that she'd been on her way to see him and had met with her accident. Either her dying protecting him, or her dying on her way to see him, I could see Kyo blame himself for being the "cause" of her death. The latter would be a "her knowing him" would be at the base of her death. The former, however, would explain the memory scene later on in the chapter when Kyo and Tohru went to visit Kazuma, in which we see Kazuma coming upon an injured Kyo. (I believe it was the chapter when we also met Kyo's father.)

I don't know if there are any other images of Kyoko's accident showing actual vehicles otherwise. I haven't found all the volumes to go through. ^^; But beyond all the hints in the story, I can't recall if I mentioned it in here or not yet, but the fanbook also says that Kyo knows something about Kyoko's accident. What was it... "Kyo has one other secret he can't tell Tohru. That's that he'd met Kyoko when he was young. Also that that wasn't just one time, but a number of times and that they'd had a number of conversations. It also seems that Kyo was aware of Tohru's existance from when he was young. About Kyoko's death as well, it seems he knows something about it......" Anyhow, that's a very rough translation on the fly from the fanbook.

In any case, most likely we'll learn a lot more about Kyoko's death in the next chapter or so which will prove most interesting. My own predictions (which are usually way out in left field but...) include Kyoko wasn't driving a vehicle and Kyoko shoved Kyo out of the way of the oncoming car... Makes me wonder if she wasn't originally in the path maybe even?? Oh well.

Otherwise... next up will perhaps be Rin's profile? Hmm... not quite sure. That was the original plan, but I might take a side trip into Snippet land first.
