Re: July 2013 Newtype Scans

Note that page 69 isn't previewed in the first post but it is in the download in the second post. I see Nagano still likes overly detailed meal descriptions. Hite continues to be useless, while the fatima specialists discuss what to do with Auxo and LDI-20 joins the party. I guess I'll scan my June ...

The Story So Far

In hindsight, I probably shouldn't have tried to write this all in one go. But anyway, this is what happens in FSS volumes 11 and 12. As previously, I will endeavor to use the English names from the Designs books even if they do not match prior translations of those names. FSS Volume 11 Majestic Sta...

Re: FSS scheduled for May 2013 Newtype

Tracer Ex1 and Ex2 are basically Nagano and a bunch of other authors/artists/whatever talking about FSS. A lot of interview articles, illustrations with commentary. GTM takes place early in the Joker calendar and there's a lot of foreshadowing of future events, so technically yes, it is FSS. Should ...

Re: June 2013 Newtype Photos

Also amusing is Sakurako's paranoia that Hugtlang is hunting her down now that she knows her secret identity. Looks like the Promenade chapters really do have relevance to the main plot and weren't just random silliness.

Hehe. Hite's never going to live down trying to pass himself off as Kaien in vol12.

Unfortunately, Wave got this far in making a kit and then apparently canceled it: http://meshitaki.com/o_hobby.htm

May 2013 Newtype scans

Thou shalt be thankful that Newtype is held together only by staples!
Bleedthrough on some pages because I don't have anything black of appropriate size to put behind this thin paper.

Re: FSS scheduled for May 2013 Newtype

Nagano has always been fond of skinny stick people, but it does seem a bit more extreme this time around. The story does continue from the end of book 12: Hathuha is broken into pieces and all their neighbors are either trying to eat them or help them with the intent of increasing their own influenc...

Re: FSS scheduled for May 2013 Newtype

Trying to make sense of Nagano's inconsistent math is likely to drive you insane. Best to stop while you still can.

Edit: Apparently this issue of Newtype is running out so fast it's getting a second printing!

Re: FSS scheduled for May 2013 Newtype

I think Designs 3 mentioned in passing that Kombinat Unio was an alternate name for the Super Empire. Looking at new timeline stuff indicates that the oracle girl in Gothicmade is basically the Atoll Priestess, so it's no surprise that Kaiserin is actually The Empress. (Nagano is so obsessed with Ge...

Re: FSS scheduled for May 2013 Newtype

Not my fault tall image attachments need to be scrolled~ Also, the little girl is Magdall; that picture was in Smoke Walls. A number of the new illustrations seem to be old ones with Gat Blows added to them.

My Chinese is not nearly as good as my Japanese, but I'm pretty sure that's Kaien's genetic mother from the Super Empire, upon whom the Black Knight and Est were eventually based.

Re: FSS scheduled for May 2013 Newtype

Apparently Decors gets a bit mellow after a fight; they're talking about the accumalated stress damage to the Black Knight's Lion Detonics Frame over the 40 years he's had it (Joker years are something like 1/3 Earth years?). So Decors decides to send it in for an overhaul and tells Est to go to Mor...
