    I dunno he gets to see his waifu every time so he's probably enjoying it.

    Fate Sion's attitude still continues to not make sense because it was never about being a vampire, or not having a daddy figure in her life. All the things that made Sion depresso still exist in Fate timelines. Zepia fucking off to be a Dead Apostle Ancestor was only a part of it, and not the main problem after all.

    Go over here and look at it yourself! (from the GAMEST paperback magazine)

    Together with the manga adaptations of part 1.5, this special proposal came in like one last missile.
    Please check out Nishide's previous work, which depicts the growing pains of the 90s golden age of fighting games: "Umehara Fighting Gamers!"
    Of course I like Daigo but man, I really loved Kurahashi's final monologue...

    In any event, please check out CCCC's manga adaptation.
    The 1.5 parts are all remnants of different varieties, with a strong 'extra story' character to them, yet CCC - though not veering from this pattern - is in itself a very unique work, I'll have you know...

    And so, secretly to this writer, I added a little bonus.
    Me myself, I wanted a grail, and so I asked of DW if it’d be fine giving one.
    Doing both of these are what's tough about being upper management, right?

    Hello, Kinoko here.
    March is about halfways over. With the pollen acting out all day, how are you all doing?
    I have a little bit of an annoucement to do this time around.


    ・The novelization of “Raging Loop”.
    The masterpiece visual novel Raging Loop that leapt into Kinoko’s top 3 of 2018 is having its novel version sold by Star Seas Company.
    It was a great honor to be put in charge of volume 1’s commentary this time around.
    I’m sure I don’t have to talk about how good it is to those who’ve already played it.
    But for those who have yet to experience it, I’d like it if you could take this opportunity to interest yourself with it.
    Raging Loop is a masterpiece that explores the peculiar structure of games, yet the novel also tries working out a way to recreate this structure in written form.
    In either way, please try a volume or two. As you advance further, with the excitement and shivers increasing, you’ll comes across the hazardous lair of the wolves.

    LET’S LAGOON” volume 1-6
    Okazaki Takeshi’s youthful action manga about being castaway on an uninhabited island is finally complete!
    I’ve always wanted to introduce it here but, as I waited for it to complete... it became 2018... huh?

    It has a charming artstyle, well illustrated storyline, and characterization that leaves you unable to dislike any single one of those eccentric people.
    It's great that the main character is so likeable with his attitude that though he's just a mere student incapable of much, he thinks deeply, never gets discouraged, and always adapts to his surroundings. Still...
    Most of all… the heroines… are really cute...
    I can highly recommend it to people who want to enjoy a survival sci-fi where you feel giddy being swung back and forth between the double heroines’ cuteness.


    ...Still, were you to read this in your teens, your sexual preferences would undoubtedly be distorted... A mass production of Mashin Eichirous...
    I mean, Chika is basically my ideal image of how Ciel should be…!

    I managed to make the time in between work to run around the lands of Ashina and so I’ve finally come within sight of its finale.
    I’m sure many gamers have already talked about it but, I’ll speak of my own unfiltered impressions of it.

    Wonderful artwork.
    A moving sense of ephemerality
    A never before seen sense of action.
    And a cast of characters that are understated, yet overflowing with charm.

    “Sekiro”

    Half a year since that PV, its perfection has handily surpassed the long accumulated expectations it had.
    A truly unreal game.
    Diversity peaks here. This is not a game created with everyone in mind.
    I give my gratitude towards this era where I can come across a game this much to my own (personal) preference after waiting for so long.
    21 years after the ambitious, but slightly imperfect “Bushido Blade”, I'd even go so far as to say that sword-fighting action has met its completion.

    The battle with the formidable enemy of the first half, Gen’ichirou, was not just about beating the boss to advance, but also gave me a feeling of fighting just for the fun of it.
    For a game in which your objective is just beating it, I think that's really something amazing.



       ◆◆◆


    By the way I’d like to use this chance here to do a statement about “FGOQ”, the lost wolf that sprinted across the Day of Fools.
    We split up the writing work so that each servant’s writer decided the drop-item and information blurb for their respective Servants.
    It’s not a lot of text but we thought carefully about what were in the Servants’ hearts.

    To prevent spoilers I can’t talk much about its contents but I can talk about its outer framework, in terms of the novel versions and the game versions.
    “Murder at the Kogetsukan” and “Murder at the Meihousou” that are being published by Star Seas Company are mystery novels penned by writer Madoi Ban using the world of FGO as its motif.
    These are not just the game version’s script put into a novel as is but rather stories that take the game version’s script and add in further gimmicks.

    This current "mystery-festival" script was originally delivered to us in January.
    The "A Meihousou Most Foul" in-game event was built up based on this,
    while the "Meihousou Murder Incident" was written as a novel after the completion of the in-game script.
    It’s not just a novelization of the in-game event, but something that hides surprises that makes you slap your knees and go “Oh!”, so I think even people who have played the game version in advance would find it enjoyable.


    Also, the production method of the mystery-festival this time around is a bit different from last time’s “Kogetsukan”:

    Original script: Madoi Ban
    In-game text writing: The writing team

    Like that. If you’re asking why we’re using this kind of method its because we want to further employ the differences between the novel version and the game version.
    If I am to give a concrete example as to what part is different then...

    ・In the novel (original) version, the starting requirements were having arrived at Part 2 Chapter 3 (SIN).
     In order to make the requirements for playing a bit broader, us on the writing team decided to change it to Part 1.
     To go with this change, we had to swap out a certain character with a different one. The swapped in character’s role and text was given as Nasu’s responsibility.
    ・As there weren’t just scenes from within the play this time around, the other servants that appear were supervised and rewritten by their respective writers.

    Something like that.
    By changing the starting requirements, the character of the script changed but the atmosphere and logic of the original is still the same.
    I hope you’ll wholeheartedly enjoy the 7 days of this thinking game.


    “Uh, that’s good and all but isn’t there something out of place? Like the plot details?”
    Ho-ho-ho. Enjoying such things is the real charm of mysteries, you whippersnapper.

    I read Let's Lagoon just now, Nori is best girl. If I had a nickel for every time I read a manga where muh spoilersa deserted island came from the future I'd have two, which isn't much, but it's pretty weird it happened twice.

    It’s important to keep heatstroke-countermeasures in mind, like avoiding direct sunlight, or staying sufficiently hydrated.
    That aside, these eggs and mirrors ain’t dropping...


    “FGO” summer event, commencing!
    We were once again privileged to happily write this summer event together.
    This time around we plainly made each writer wholly responsible for the servants they’re in charge of and their respective casinos.

    On the other hand, If you’re asking about Mr. Nasu, given my schedule this year has been quite harsh, the plan was for me to stop at just being responsible for general supervision but...
    I couldn’t hold back... I took up responsibility of 1 casino’s worth...
    I mean, it’s summer. Like, it’s the resplendent Etoile. Who woulda thought it’d appear in such a form? Of course I’d wanna write about it...

         ◆

    And a bit belatedly, thank you all for coming to “FGO fes.”!
    A heartfelt thanks,
    to all you who arrived during this heat,
    to the cast who took to the stage,
    and to the staff who stayed until the last supporting the venue.
    Just this one day is something I let myself enjoy as a humble guest, to get a break from work.

    Each year as I look upon the venue I’m moved, thinking that this has to be the max for an IRL event, and this year’s ‘Fes.’ was no exception.
    We owe the army of people cooperating and doing their best in creating such a gigantic venue, such as the likes of Aniplex’s Mr. K, and the whole event team, scurrying about for half a year for the sake of realizing this event.
    All the engineers who spent a whole day behind the stage, tinkering with their equipment and choreographing the stage production.
    All the staff who prepared the parts for the guides of each Theme Park, and sent everyone off with a smile even to the very end.
    Chaldea Park managed to finish up in an awesome way thanks to these oodles of unsung heroes.

    I hope we can be blessed by fortune to once again go through such dreamlike moments next year too.

         ◆

    Speaking of “Fes.”, there was the surprise of episode 0 of Chapter 7’s anime, “Babylonia 0”.
    By now I believe you can view it quite easily so if you have the time please give it a watch.

    This time, there was a problem that was imperative in solving in terms of the production of the “Absolute Demonic Front Babylonia Anime”.
    The problem of how to communicate the buildup from Chapter 1 to 6.
    There was a proposal to do a digest of each chapter but then Chapter 7 itself would have its length reduced, and each animated Chapter would also be quite downsized.
    That being the case, we’d at least want people who don’t know about the game to at least learn about Chaldea, Mashu and Romani, as a prequel to before Ritsuka arrives... And so I had the honor of writing “Chaldea - Zero”.
    The A-Part is Romani Archiman’s journey.
    The B-Part is Mashu’s upbringing and her growth up until Chapter 6, as a milestone towards Chapter 7.

    And with this, I could hand over the baton to the protagonist, Fujimaru Ritsuka... It turned out to be another manuscript packed with lines, but through the abilities of storyboarder Takao and director Akai it turned out just suuuuuper emotional… and interesting... reborn into a wonderful animated piece.
    I think my feelings after seeing the completed episode 0 were the same as everyone else at the venue.
    Kind of a gradually emerging warmth like, man... we sure went through a great journey coming all the way here.


    Nonetheless, only episode 0 min-maxed into being emotional.
    From episode 1, it will start as just purely “greedy entertainment”.
    I think it was almost unilaterally conveyed from episode 0 just how much all of the anime staff love the main story of FGO and so from that, please look forward to the broadcast starting in October.

    Of course, not just to Chapter 7, but also to “Divine Realm of the Round Table Camelot - Theatrical Edition” as well.
    Chapter 6’s production is also proceeding smoothly, with the material I receive meant for supervision being wonderful, with a quality worthy of the movie medium.
    This is coming out after Chapter 7, so I cannot provide any information about it but, it’d be great if you could look forward to it all the same.










         ◆

    By the way, about Gawain’s Nightless Charisma.
    Please think of it as… the result of him having the Gift given to him by the Lion King and what happened in the holy land inscribed into his Saint Graph.
    He did not abandon his sins.

    It still feels for me like I’m in 2019 but actually half of April has already passed. The spring of 2020 has already had more happy and sad things than the average year, yet I think I want to speak about just the usual, that is, things that I like, without getting into any the gloomy stuff.

       ◆

    “Shadow House”
    I’m kinda creepy always acting like a nervous dad in the backlines going:
    “Emilicooo! It’s me, please get your happy ending!”
    At it’s core... it’s a story of friendship between a young mistress and her servant in an aristocratic setting, a real gothic kinda supernatural story.
    I was enthralled by the delicate art-style, the wonderfully modelled mansion, the cuteness of the characters, their cleverness, and their bravery, while I also found the enjoyment of gradually fumbling around and solving the mysteries of its world super interesting...!
    Highly recommended for people who like “Dark Souls” and “Made in Abyss”.
    The digital version is fine but this is a manga where you’d really want to get the physical book. The book design is incredibly good. I’m sure it’ll turn into a treasured book.
    It’s the best kind of book to read under the gray skies of winter. (‘Ey you, I already told you it’s spring…)


    “Undead Unluck”
    The manga of Jump’s up-and-coming artists are all so innovative yet still so openly shounen manga these last few years. They’re a great reward after a hard day's work each week.
    They’re like bitterly feuding rivals with every artist seriously going like “damn, everyone was so interesting this time, but this week it’s my turn to be the headliner!”
    You could also call it an exhibition of the fates.
    Among all this, the wild Intelligence Beast “Undead Unluck” suddenly appeared.
    It’s but 1 page in the story of a man who can’t die (Undead), and a girl who is fatally unlucky (Unluck)... putting it like that makes it sound a bit poetic but its contents are high-speed, violent, SCP and kinda lyrical; stuffed with things that are all like “is this what you boys like?” A boxed lunch of a battle manga.
    Volume 1 only came out just recently but the potential is just amazzzing... sooo gooood.. The fundamentals of its world are talked a little bit about in the actual book and that too is so interesting like, man of course it's just that exciting, like are you drawing a manga that’s actually a tonkotsu broth packed to the brim with umami or what... I hope it keeps going for a long time... sooo gooood...



    “Shinsekai: Into the Depths”
    This is a game just recently being sold for the Switch.
    It’s a 2D exploration action game set in the deep seas. A metroidvania.
    It lasts for about 8 hours and comes at a low price.
    For people with a Switch just take my word on it. Please give it a play.
    You are pulled into the world just 1 minute after the start, and then the more you advance, the more you will let out whispers of wonder. It’s that kind of game.
    Though it was obviously interesting from the point of view of a single gamer, from the point of view of a creator I felt deep admiration from the bottom of my heart like, “...taking such nerdy, stoic and romantic motifs and creating something with this kinda quality in today’s games industry…”
    Without basically any prior information or flashy advertisements, just truly ‘diving into the deep oceans on all your lonesome’. I think that’s a silent provocation, and an achievement.

       ◆

    Well then. Having shilled some of the things I like I feel a bit better. From hereon I’m gonna talk about work.
    One week has passed since the release of the latter half of FGO Chapter 5, Olympus.
    I think there’s a high amount of players who have beaten it so I think I wanna do some small talk about it, spoilers included.

    ※Past here are spoilers so people who have yet to beat Olympus, be warned.



    I referenced this in an interview but up to Chapter 1~5 I asked each writer to do the lore of their lostbelt.
    I had them each freely consider and create a ‘what-if world’ with the theme of ‘a dead end human history different from ours’ in mind.
    Still, even within these, Olympus has connections with Extra.

    “Within TYPE-MOON’s mythos, the source of the Gods of Olympus are a migratory fleet from outer space (only machines) who built Atlantis.”

    So with just those words set in stone, and with it as a model I had their respective writers think of each Machine-God’s background setting.
    The background setting of having each respective god’s Authority be their function/role required for interstellar travel was an unorthodox element as one might expect. I think it lent the presence of an unusual enemy, something never before seen in Fate.

    Having received these background settings, I-IV did the design drafts of the Machine-Gods, and then DW did the designs and animations.

    Machine-God Ares’ design was done by Huke on account of his connection to Altera, with it being the Divine Core that crossed over to Rome and all.
    He's got an orthodox approach different from the 12 Machine-Gods of Olympus, rustic and militaristic, on top of being stylish and super cool...!
    I’m sure there were many players who didn’t notice that you could use him as a type of Master Skill during the final battle.
    That war-god can, because of my own little request, hit Zeus up and down, and remove his dumb annoying defense buffs, you know?

    Great Full Armor - Kumano was designed by RAITA, on account of his connections with Kintoki.
    Black Barrel - Round was designed by Hirai Yukio, who we are much indebted to for his work on Shadow Border, among others.
    They were not able to sortie onto the battle screen but both were wonderful designs. Thanks as always!


    Well then. Let's talk about this "Greece arc" then.
    As usual, the Chapter writer’s role was everything from the landing and until the defeat of the Lostbelt King, as before.
    My role then was taking that and doing general re-writes, adding the introduction and ending - the plot details and stories that bridge the Chapters and so on.
    Still, this time around I was also allowed to participate as a writer.
    The climax of Part 2’s turning point... As it’s the script where the story of the Crypters briefly comes to an end, that final conclusion is the duty of the script supervisor.

    That’s right. Olympus was the end of the Crypter arc.
    (The truth of the Crypters has yet to be revealed but what I mean is that they’ve been released from their roles as the current enemy)

    What in Part 1 was Chapter 4, around the point when Soloman appears.
    Chaldea’s journey still has a ways to go, so I’d like it if you'd think of it as their direction changing a bit.


     The Alien God who has finally revealed itself (?).
     The mischievous Disciples who have started doing whatever they feel like.
     The remaining Crypters. The two remaining Lostbelts.
     The records of Bluebook.
     What exactly lies past the Wiped Blank Earth?

     As always, please look forward to more “Fate/Grand Order”


    Right, from hereon I’ll talk behind-the-scenes for some characters I’ve hand-picked.

    ・Caenis
    It’s been two years since their appearance in Part 2’s Opening Animation. Our Mr. Ms. Caenis has finally been added!
    ...Caenis was actually delivered to us in 2015, so we’re not even talking about before the start of Part 2, in fact this illustration has been here since Part 1. Among the FGO characters, they're actually part of the old-timer gang, rivaling Red Hare.
    I’m sorry for making you wait so long, Azusa! Not only did you wait so long with a smile on your face, but also happily undertook some sprite additions in the eleventh hour. My greatest thanks to you...!

    I left the background setting of Caenis to the other writers but
    They were a servant of a special pattern, as I took charge of them within each script.
    As their relationship with Kirschtaria was an element that spans across the various Chapters, it's true that only I, being the general supervisor, could do it.
    As for this crude and violent Caenis, I think you can guess at their true feelings now that you know their conclusion and can look back.
    This was especially strong when they lost during Atlantis. Who was it they could not afford dying because of?
    Caenis’ screams were not a plea for their life, but rather a plea in order to save him.

    Also, I had to have some exclusive lines for the last battle and so after testing the waters in asking for a supplementary recording session, it turned out we were blessed by the voice actors schedule being open and got an OK!
    In that sense, a super luxurious Servant. Hey, are you really a 4-star?



    ・Kirschtaria
    Everyone's favorite apple-providing bigger brother.
    Why did he introduce himself when the earth was Blank Slated in the Prologue with “I am Kirschtaria Wodime”?
    I mean usually at that point there’d be no need to do so.
    Putting aside that he’d basically already secured victory, it goes without saying that remaining anonymous would be to his advantage with his greatest enemy in Chaldea still remaining.
    Yet, Kirschtaria did not do so.
    That was a declaration of intent concerning the Editing of Human Order, and also a proclamation for the purpose of making it clear that the responsibility of destroying Pan Human History laid with him.

    Also, the reason why Kirschtaria’s 6th and 7th skill are like that is because,
    “Beyond there I was always alone” and
    “There were no memories sufficient in supporting my body from my journey there.”


    ・Pino (the boy under the bridge)
    Pino is a moniker that I secretly added as I was writing. This name does not appear in the main story.
    I asked Takenashi Eri to do the design and sprites. Indeed, I used my connections to the fullest!
    Someone who doesn’t give off a presence of more than just a background character, fundamentally creepy and menial, yet that final expression...
    A character with a very difficult, yet important role, and so I just had to get Takenashi’s touch.


    ・U - Olga Marie -
    Sorry for keeping you waiting. So we have finally arrived here.
    The U is the U of Ultra.

    “If - just what if - I turned into a being that rules over the earth, then what title would I give myself…?

    Super... Hybrid... No, not that, it’s gotta be Ultra, right!”

    Whether she thought this or not is unclear, but I at least think it’s entirely possible.
    (Look it up)

    So I requested for her design to be ultra monster-ish. No, not that kinda ultra.
    Also, that single sword stroke was the end of Muramasa’s job, and so that appearance comes from her own disposition.
    “Seems I got some more work to do” as per Muramasa.



    ・The protagonist’s mind.

    During the latter half, from the part where you hear about Kirschtaria from Pepe (about them being equals, both in terms of ability and circumstances) a spark lights up in the protagonist’s feelings, becoming one of fighting, rather than one of restoring.
    With the words imparted as the team-up with Caenis ended after the battle with Chaos, this spark has clearly erupted into a flame, going from fighting for the sake of the Human Order, to wanting to beat Kirschtaria as a fellow Master.
    In being recognized more so than anyone else by an opponent who they thought they had no chance against, they can give it their all more so than ever.
    This loosened the protagonist’s heart who previously fearfully froze up thinking they had to repair the Human Order, to now being returned to the same state as in the finale of Part 1 of just wanting to defeat what's in front of them, with all their might.

    They believed in themselves, for the sake of someone who believed in them more than they did.


    With that in mind, I requested that the battle with Kirschtaria in Atlantis be balanced not as to be an overwhelming show of power, but one strong enough where it’s winnable if the players pulled out their everything so they’d feel like “damn, he’s strong, but this is it!”.
    So when players who really managed to win popped up I smiled in satisfaction, while also thinking “3 turning it is overdoing it, Medb!”


    So. At the time, there was a Kirschtaria defeat voice-line just in case of players winning but I decided to scrap it as it would give away Kirschtaria’s true nature if used in Atlantis.
    It’s not much but I present this to those of you who have beaten Olympus.

    Yes. Humans cannot choose the right answer.
    Because what’s actually important is what you do thereafter.

    As a dour note, the quality of this latest translation might be the lowest for the simple reason that I've proof-read it only once with few corrections. I kind of grew pretty tired of spending half my day going through this blogpost, and so out of spite I worked on it more sloppily than the others.

    The spring of 2020 has already had more happy and sad things than the average year, yet I think I want to speak about just the usual, that is, things that I like, without getting into any the gloomy stuff.



    “Undead Unluck”The manga of Jump’s up-and-coming artists are all so innovative yet still so openly shounen manga these last few years. They’re a great reward after a hard day's work each week.
    They’re like bitterly feuding rivals with every artist seriously going like “damn, everyone was so interesting this time, but this week it’s my turn to be the headliner!”
    You could also call it an exhibition of the fates.
    That's an interesting way putting it. I didn't think of him as a reader of that kind of stuff though. Must be a recent thing.

    Nasu's tastes have always seemingly been quite eclectic. I suppose its part of what forms the character of his own works.

    Thanks as well. I remember some of the stuff here mentioned back before, his praise for stuff like Undead Unluck, Raging Loop, and Shinsekai

    That last Gawain line got me.

    The first time I heard about this project I was a bit taken aback, like... oh, okay, is it okay for it to be this large scale though?
    Through the efforts of everyone on the 5th Anniversary staff (the selection of stunning photographs, choice of famous tourist spots and promotion for each prefecture), it turned into a fantastic event.
    Now that I look at them in the newspapers I’m just so moved... that’s really amazing!
    (I also had the honor of helping out a little bit with the supervision of all the servant’s comments)

    Originally we had planned for it to be a Golden Week trip where you could go meet your favorite servants but we had to really just hold back on that.
    I’ll have to ask of you to just follow these Servants’ journeys through Japan from your own homes.


    Nevertheless...
    Even though I’m an urban fantasy writer living in the middle of the city I haven’t been there even once... to the Outer Underground Discharge Channel, that is...
    I suppose that's to be expected from Eresh...


        ◆


    And now for some business communications.
    FGO had an update which slightly fixed some of the text in the main story yesterday.
    It concerns Goredolf and Olga-Marie.
    In the main story of Chapter 5 (in the both first and second halves) places specified as “new-director” during the writing process it seems was deemed as a mistake by DW’s QA-team and so converted in its entirety to “director”,


    I have to uphold the QA team’s reputation here and explain that the cause of this is that during Chapter 4, India, there was a spot where we used both director and new-director interchangeably since the momentum of a line there was important and so we found it fine with just ‘Director Goredolf’.
    The QA team do their debugging with the stance of coldly and systematically correcting any writing oversights so this is less a mistake and more because I failed to properly explain things.


    Just as I got into the extended holidays and could finally play the game on my actual phone...
    “It's finally the holidays, I should go beat Chapter 5 on my phone as well…”
    I noticed this and, despite it being the holidays, had to hurriedly contact DW and have them return it back to as it was before.


    You might ask why I felt the need to announce something so minor here...
    It's not that the protagonist and Mashu keep calling Goredolf “new-director” because they don’t accept him as the “director”... but rather that for the both of them, the position of “director” is something that belongs only to the person they ran through the burning city of Fuyuki together with.
    It is exactly because these two unconsciously think in this way that they keep saying “new-director” so obstinately.



    By the way, in what tourist spot does the President of Earth want to take their pictures?
    Hm? The east coast of Hokkaido? Because you saw it in a movie?
    ...Unfortunately, there’s no ultra-large radio telescope there...
    That’s purely just fiction...

    Damnit, my mind is in shambles.
    It’s at times like these that I listen to Abi’s pancake song...
    It melts my brain...
    Actually, I did the checks of the text for these current shop voice-lines from Abi, but it's only now that I play it on my phone that I hear them for the first time...

    Meteo... now you've gone and done it, Meteo...!
    (You see, the writer in charge of the Servant explains how the acting should be when we’re doing the recordings)

    You can’t just do that.
    You really can’t.
    To think the Director of the Gentlemen’s Re-education Center is her...
    Isn’t the magnificent Valentine 1 year too early? What do you think?



       ◆

    So, from here on there’ll be spoilers.
    Feel free to read if you've gone past part 10 of the summer event.
    Swimsuit Kiara has a hidden feature.









    The truth is, when you ascend swimsuit Kiara to her final ascension while she’s Bond 5, a voice-line different from her usual one plays.
    “Normal…”
    And “hard...”
    We got these two versions for the voice-line, and both were quite good so I saw it fit to implement both of them in this special way.
    Ascending someone to their final ascension after raising them to Bond 5 is quite a rare so I think there's a lot of people who didn’t notice it.
    And if you ask me why I made it such an annoying requirement, well...
    It’s because... obviously that’d be how it turns out if you made her ascend after having glimpsed her true identity from Bond 5.
    Both versions are collected in your materials once you get her to Bond 5, so people curious about the other version should check it out there.

    You should be able to go to Materials > Servant Records > Sesshouin Kiara, set Kiara to her third ascension and then click “Saint Graph Ascension 4” and they’ll be played in alternation.


    In addition, here’s some trivia about her Lily-form that was only minorly touched upon in the story.
    After Kiara became Lily, the Author (no relation to Chaldea) was summoned as a stray Servant in the mountains.
    So...

    Lily:
    An innocent child who believes she is Yao Bikuni.

    The Author:
    A Heroic Spirit that can only be summoned to this place and knows neither of CCC or Chaldea.
    He encountered a lost child during his field work. The main story has the rest.

    Kiara:
    She remembers everything and grasps the situation once she turns into an adult.
    However, in this form she no longer has any real reason to visit the Author (or so she says) and so she returns to her helpless Lily-form, leaving the situation in her hands.


    Or so it goes.

    They will never meet under ideal circumstances, no matter what.

    So that's 2 years worth of translated blog entries.

    Now the gap left by Mew, and then Canaki's inactivity has been filled.

    I'll just put this down as a note to myself: At some point I should go back and do the entries before 2015. In all likelihood, no one else will.
