    Right. Any theories about the bandage so far from the Japanese?

    Well... that was a trip...
    That Normal Ending completely bamboozled me. I felt my body go cold when I read that.
    Thankfully the True End was there to save the day. But it felt kinda bloated, especially the Shiki portion of it. The battle just wouldn't end.

    I'm still processing a lot of what I read but I think I like this more than the original Near Side? The only real issue I have is that Vamp!Noel and Arach don't really mesh well design-wise with the rest of the cast but the content, especially Noel's, more than makes up for it.

    I think my favorite sequence is Ciel's resolution scene, when she breaks out of Noel's Mystic Eyes. I think it was a great deconstruction and reconstruction of the character that brought to the forefront everything I like about her. And it was accompanied by an absolutely masterful piece of music.

    I'm only left wondering why exactly they went so big on the powerlevels here, cuz this is gonna be followed up by the Far Side which is not even remotely close. Unless they pull some real shenanigans in the finale of Sacchin's route.

    Wasn't Near Side always higher in scale than Far Side? Also, Nasu could decide to buff up the half-oni characters in light of the oni servants in FGO.

    Yes, but the difference now is staggeringly high.
    I mean tge original never got to End-of-the-World stakes, so the transition from Near to Far is going to feel particularly jarring for those who do not already know what's coming.

    I expect some buffing, yes, but nothing even close to what Near Side got. So I think the whiplash will still be there.

    I mean, Arach on her own will probably increase the scope by a lot when she does anything.

    Speaking of the oni, I hope Far Side gives us some good stuff really connecting the original oni lore from Tsukihime with the stuff we have since learned from FGO.

    Finally, speaking of Near Side, does the whole Luminous Body Arcueid thing retcon Watch and her Archetype-Earth stuff, or do those forms require her to still have a physical body?

    I'm sorry if this question has been answered before, but what is the reading for Arach's name 阿良句寧子? Araku something something?

    I do wonder how she'll factor into the Far Side since she deals in vampire, which are pretty lacking in that part of the VN. Roa doesn't manifest in SHIKI over there.

    Probably will, didn't know FGO started talking about demons... I just can't get rid of that thing even in a Tsuki discussion OTL

    Good question, hard to tell for now. I'd say no...? The Astral Body is more something ""biological"" that happens when a True Ancestor's body is destroyed (which means they gave Ciel an actual win against Arcueid, which is probably the most unbelievable thing in the remake), whereas something like Archetype: Earth is a personality thing... I think... Maybe I should've done MB a bit slower...

    Araku Neko.

    Yes.

    (Arachne-ko)

    Other than Arach I feel the other designs sort of fit into Tsuki. We'll see how she is in the Far-side. Ideally she might be sequel bait or spinoff bait in the end tbh.

    Also isn't it possible that instead of being Sumire, she could be a successor of Sumire?/a Greater Dead Apostle of her? If we're going to go down that line of thinking. The ability of overcoming the weakness to water could after all be a trait passed down or made inherit with her blood after all.

    A Rank VII who possesses the means of turning people into Rank VIII?

    I think it will be easiest for us to work under the assumption that Arach is one of the 27, anything else seems too hard to swallow.

    Soo... in the end which rank did Noel get? I thought it was Rank VI?

    Noel was Rank VI, yes. That was how far she was willing to go. But the narration explicitly mentions that Arach's injections can take you to Rank VIII.

     すべて使えばⅧ階梯―――真祖すら寄せ付けない、祖に手が届く死徒の頂点にまで上り詰める。
     だが、一本で一度の死。
     それを乗り越えるだけの魂の許容量が自分にはない事も、死徒になった『彼女』には理解できて いた。

    Noel however, instinctively understood her soul would not withstand that level of dosage, so she didn't go that far.

    but she can walk on day.

    even as ancestor they are still weak to sunlight.

    unless she modified herself since it's her specialty.

    Shiki's half-vampirization still left him completely fine in the sunlight. There could be a multitude of reasons as to why Arach can do what she does.

    I think Araku would be the reason Sacchin turning into DAA.

    The one thing I want from Far Side is to flesh out that old claim that the relationship between oni and half-oni is similar to the one between the TA and DA.

    There's this throwaway line during the advanced DA course that says that sometimes DAAs take a fancy to non-humans and the result is a VIII rank DA. It seemed oddly specific, makes me wonder if we'll see one of those anomalous VIIIs soon.
    don't quote me on this

    I see. Then Arach is most likely one of the 27, Sumire or otherwise.
    She must be very good at collecting blood without raising news headlines.

    Araku might have business like Rita.

    祖の中には吸血鬼ではないものを見初めて、いきなりこの階梯まで引き上げてしまうモノもいる

    As a slight correction. Not "non-humans" but "non-vampires".
