Fan Works / Elaedan's corner
« on: June 09, 2014, 05:56:17 PM »
Well I figured out that I would as well do a thread for my fan stuff for Ao no Exorcist and other series. So I mostly cosplay and draw (when I am not lazy and tired of my studies) but I have also started to plan my first fanfics. So Welcome to my corner~


I haven't scanned or taken photo any of my doodles of AnE and my better traditional arts are either on storage or on hobbyist gallery exhibition so I will post them when I have them in hand.

My fanfics are on planning stage but I hope that soon I will write the first chapters and put them to tumblr and maybe some other place.

My most notable form of art work is cosplay and I started to cosplay AnE this year which imo are one of my best costumes. So I think now I will share them here without you having to go through links.






   Okumura Rin better (pictures coming when my friend has edited them on his camera)

  Okumura Rin Illuminati Arc

  Okumura Rin Gekijouban (movie) haori

Social Talk / Stories behind usernames
« on: April 11, 2014, 04:54:48 AM »
A little boost to talk :3
I should also spam the ghost storie topic...

•••

But! Finally made the thread where, if not too personal, will share the tales of our usernames~


My first usernames where based on my first fandom, Star Wars since 2005. Longest I used 'Mustafar' with additional words in front of it (like lord) if it where alone unavailable. Mustafar is the planet where my fav SW character Anakin finally got burned and turned into Darth Vader.

About 1-2 years ago I realized that I didn't want to restrict myself to only one fandom (then I already had received many more), so considered the change. Something that would sound cool and interesting and more of current me, and people would get curious which all series I like (if it where only previous 'Mustafar' everyone would only see SW firstly. But I don't have fav fandoms because when I attach to series I want to see them as equals).

So, first I though of 'Elran' which hailed directly of J.R.R Tolkien's Elven language. It meant 'skywalker', again after Anakin Skywalker(=Vader). After A while I added 'aedan' behind the sky and that's how Elaedan became to be~ it sounded more fem and it now covers 3 (well, after AnE could be 4) of my favourite series. 'Aedan' means fire is ancient Irish/welsh/celtic/english.



Well longer story than I though, but hope you enjoy~

Social Talk / Your favourite music
« on: March 30, 2014, 11:45:48 AM »
Checked and didn't find thread for discussing your favourite type of music, singers, bands etc so here you go if you want to introduce something and let others find new :33
(We only have now that Songs that remind you of AnE and AnE music. If this is unneeded please delete! ^^)



I have A vast music taste but I listen to anime soundtracks (OP/ED mostly) but through AnE I have started to listen to Uverworld and RookieZ is Punk'D.


Otherwise I like many of Nightwish's (yup, they are from Finland and I like metal x3) , Linkin Park's, Evanescence's and Within Temptation's songs. I have about 170 tracks on my MP3 atm and they are songs I never grow tired to listen to 8P

Other Media / Music in AnE
« on: March 30, 2014, 09:46:48 AM »
Okay one more thread for you to spam! :3

This is for music in AnE like soundtracks and character songs etc - hope we can collect here all existing material for everyone to find easily but also to discuss of it!

***


I heard/read somewhere that Hiroyuki Sawano, the composer of AnE anime soundtrack, has also made music to Attack on Titan anime(?) but not sure. I still find AnE soundtrack all in all better and more 'whole'.


My fav tracks must be "A-maimon, eXoRcIsT, sAtAn and D-Evil" (hope they were written like that!) because I like songs with faster 'beat' and they rise feels in me ;______; plus reminds of SW episode 3 music in their darkness - and the tracks has also sometimes choir which gives really a catholic and religious feeling which is great for this kind of series :)

Related Books & Stories / Q&A of Kazue Katou
« on: March 18, 2014, 06:10:21 AM »
I got idea reading the German Q&A panel - we haven't got pure discussion of these revelations (although some are discussed on tankouban bonus thread). So here I would like to collect all Q&A of AnE if possible ;33
(Merge/delete if excists or bad idea)




SPOILER



-I was surprised she thinks to stop at ~25 tankoubans - it is good number that the characters and plot doesn't start to repeat itself/come dull/rushed like other mangas - 60 tankoubans like in one of my fav manga is too much but I would still like the series have more arcs... It has potential and current plot it would be little too short for me ^^"


-So Mephisto and Shiro fans, joy! (Neqtar is going to faint of joy...) their backstory will come and we may see Mepphy in action because she hinted we able to see his heart! (I want to see his tail too)




But the Okumura surname is still open. Did Shiro give it/decide and will it has deeper meaning in the plot? Is it legal in Japan to have neither parents' surname? Well we still has our letter to be send!



//I don't like the title, if somebody has better idea please change...//

Everything Else / Mythology, supernatural things and ghost stories~
« on: March 14, 2014, 10:49:45 AM »
Well I have mentioned before but I love mythology (in perticularly Japanese mythology, the line between horror is slim)
So this is thread for sharing stories of all kind! Ask, share, discuss and let's teach one another! :3



My country's (Finland) mythology is really lame. We got shamans and we saw animals as gods or totem animals (that you might be for example bear's descendant) so it reminds of shinto and Celtic mythology but only briefly. Maybe our best known stories are known as "Kalevala" which is our national epos like Edda or Niebelung. Fun fact is that J.R.R. Tolkien based some of jos stories on it plus he took alphabets like ö and ä from Finnish.
As for other beliefs, we have A being like celp or kappa called näkki.
Plus goblin-like beings liked to change babys to theirs...
But can't think anything else because Christianity has weeded out the common beliefs of people...
That's why I like to hear everything you guys know :33



For Finnish ghost story... I can think only one for now (shall look for more because I am on spooky mood):
We have A castle here on Turku where I live. This was the old capital and the castle was a prison on some point. We have propably two ghost there: Jaakko Ilkka who were the leader of Finnish troops against the Swedish rule. He escaped once through toilet (which is not through because the hole is SMALL but the story still lives) but was killed after that. Castle is now A museum and the museum guards have claimed seeing his ghost there.
Other ghost is A prison guard which was killed during prisoner escape, but both are not dangerous ghosts.

Plus we have in one road A lifter-woman ghost (lady in white maybe the tight term) and on our library one summer worker said to seen A headless female librarian on the old wing. Again none of these are dangerous, so quite lame >___>


I also know many Japanese ones if you are interested I can share :3
For Japanese horror stories, you may also watch on YouTube A series "Japanese horror stories" it was A series which aired on Japan about 10-20 years back. But otherwise this goes too long so now your turn ^^

Blue Exorcist (Manga) / Favourite manga chapter and arc
« on: March 13, 2014, 07:25:13 PM »
Okay I hope this thread locks many ppl but I got the idea from the "Hurt/heal game" which just ended - it was popular but I think that like me first some were reluctant to hop in the Middle of Game or smthing so this is the thread I created to discuss of favourite manga chapters and Arcs in AnE!

So, which one(s) is/are your favourite chapter(s) or Arcs and why?
If someone wants we might add A poll to this thread but I leave it to you to decide :)





My favourite arc  is the "first arc" which I see ends when ExWires leave for Kyoto. It feels greatly planned and 'whole' to me and the battles and character introductions still rises feels inside me. That also might be because I usually like beginnings and ends in the stories.

Of the chapter I like 01, Amaimon vs Rin chapters and 39 most. My ultimate favourite must be 'Sneering Satan' (yes I like beginnings) but also this particular series beginning was epic - Rin was so sweet and I loved to watch him suffer A bit. Also Shiro was alive and Satan made his entrance - perfect. and the more 'bulkier' drawing style of Katou - yes Rin looked little more devilish and I liked that!

Other Media / Kazue goes international
« on: January 23, 2014, 07:45:45 PM »
It seems that I found the convention Katou-sensei is attending:

http://www.animania.de/home/animania-aktuelle-news/article/kazue-kato-auf-der-leipziger-buchmesse-2014.html

I might be so nuts that I go there to get an autograph. If we have a letter also by then, I might not post it but hand it personally to her, but this is big "if". But I try to negotiate with my family, because I really would like to go... Germany is quite near Finland....

Related Books & Stories / Home Sweet Home (short stories)
« on: January 11, 2014, 09:50:13 PM »
Well I thought that maybe it would be easier to ppl to have each of the novel own thread where to discuss of them.... You can delete this if you find this dumb...

But I would suggest that Weekend Hero stories be translated and put to the thread where we used to discuss all of the stories ^^''

And one more thing: Sorry my scanner screwed me, it didn't want to work on my laptop and was too lazy to steal my sis' so I took photos of the pages... I think still that the letter are shown quite nice, but if you need anything clearer etc let me know and I take new ones with my best camera : PP 
(and I think of scanning the illustrations and colour pages, but have to figure out first how my scanner works)

But here you go: Amaimon's story from the novel Home Sweet Home (scanning others later)

Well I decided to create this new thread because I think that we have pondered this topic before in differend threats ^^" so here we go, share your theories, thoughts and so on~

(I will maybe edit and link something and edit this post when I get to computer and don't have to operate through A mobile)






//Where we debated about this earlier//

Yuri dying before giving birth would fit with Yukio being "underdeveloped" and unable to have demon powers. Complications from being born premature?

They're twins, remember? If Yukio was premature, then so was Rin. You can't use that as an explanation why one is stronger than the other.

"I had cousins who were twins and one of them was born a very large and healthy baby while the other twin was weak and had to be hospitalized for a few weeks and hooked up to feeding tubes because he didn't get proper nutrition while in the womb (the other twin was getting it all)."

Maybe it could still work? They could be born prematurely, but Rin the healthier one because he got more nutrition?

+ this was also interesting.

I'm not saying Yukio can't have been weaker, I'm saying it can't have been because he was premature. There must have been another reason before that.

Yukio made it sounds like Rin got the flames (= became a demon) because he was stronger, but I wonder... it's also possible he was stronger because he had more 'demon blood' in the first place. That would sound more logical to me.

I like to think like NeeNee that it is more about Rin getting more demonic blood/genes in first place than Yukio, all human traits and genes are determined in the time of conception (after that all is set nothing can change)so Yukio being weaker after it wouldn't matter - if the powers come comes with genes...


I wonder if anyone is going to ask Katou-sensei or does anyone wonder if she will return some point in story to origin of the twins and Revelations about their birth, early history and the Blue Night. I think it would be odd IMO if the story ignored such a tasty plot 'twist'. Rin and Yukio are Satan's first hybrid sons and most powerful demon getting babies would be kind of Big thing in the world 'cause they may or may not be a threat to the human kind. Also Blue Night itself was a Big deal and many aren't okay with that do would be lovely to know more ;33

Yeah, but these kids have three parents (a human mom and dad, and then Satan). I'm not sure how genetics work among demons.

Pretty sure she will tell us at some point. I'm still hoping to meet human family members, too.

But this is getting off topic... (Anyone wants to make a thread about the birth of the twins? We only have this and this.)

What I think about demon genetics is that like when Satan or Kyuubi possess somebody their host bodies go through little changes (which I dunno if it that way affects geneology). They might not overwrite the geneology of the host though... So basically they have three parents but maybe Satan's genes got through to Rin  more than the host's. What Satan wanted to accomblish by Blue Night, I have now idea. Maybe he was just bored because he seems crazy dude who doesn't care of anything.

And I think that Rin may have had flames on womb already and thus might have damaged her mother.
