    Text-based media just doesn't adapt to visual mediums well. Ignoring such adaptations as a rule has proved a comfortable prejudice.

    I do not envy the scanlation needing to clean and typeset all the text walls in the Elmo manga.

I will admit it's taken me like 3 reads, copious amounts of slow-reading, tons of theory-video intake, and a talk with the greatest Lev fan in the world (who claims to have read MBBAN "over 500 times") to actually grasp it, but...

    One day I'll see if I can create some kind of guide to reading it, as well as a proper translation (the current one is quite bad), because I want others to be able to have this kind of experience.
    I would be extremely interested in that, if only because I had no idea that there was even stuff to grasp. I might have to reread it myself.
    I may make mistakes, but at least I don't learn from them.

    You can take a look at my theory thread in the F/GO sub-forum for a brief introduction.

    I think I know where you're going with that. I won't attempt to spoil it since I feel like you're getting to the part about where Bluebook comes from, but I feel like we came to the same conclusions, so all the more reason to revisit MBBAN and see what I missed.

    I just read the Tsuki no Sango manga for the first time today. I enjoyed it, my brain makes me want to generate theories about it but I’m just gonna ignore that. It was a nice short and sweet story about a missed connection between someone who was becoming human and someone who abandoned humanity.

    It was a nice little short story and even really relatable at parts. I’m sure a lot of folks here read the manga or the original short story, but if you haven’t then definitely give it a look.

    The novel is pretty good too. I actually forget if it's translated though.

    I've made it to the end of the currently translated chapters of the Fate/Extra CCC Foxtail Manga and I have to say that it's pretty good compared to what I thought it was going to be like. The whole thing is very weird but overall the story was interesting enough for me to want to push past those scenes. Going into the manga I didn't really care all that much about Tamamo but now that I know more about her I feel like I was missing out on one of the best fate servants.

    I just read Notes for the first time, it was pretty weird, in a good way. I don't know what I thought of it, and I like this feeling.

    Yeah, she was very sweet for a character written in less than 8 pages! I wish I was proficient enough with Japanese so I could read the Material Book that I bought and learn a bit more about this world, instead of relying on the Wiki...

    For how short it is, it's really good.

    Just wish there was more.

    I've been playing quite a lot of FGO lately. After refusing to play this game for a while I finally gave up and it just sunk me in like a swamp.

    On the other hand I also started watching Kara no Kyoukai movies. Not a big fan of a movies as a concept but since it's that long of a series I don't mind. First one was great so I'm quite excited for the rest of them.

    I love those movies. I feel like I'll rewatch them sometime this year.

    I think the material book is already translated for it, I thought?

    I really want to do that to! I bought a copy a few years back but it's pretty complex to install, because I have to put my computer in Japanese and install the official patch just so it can work.
