    [EN] Lostbelt 5.5: Heian-kyo: Thunderous Flash





    Official website.
    Starts Monday, November 21.
    This chapter only requires completing Olympus, but it's sort of a sequel to Shimousa, so you may want to read that too if you haven't.

    New Servants




    New costume

    Slowly progressing the story in between my reading breaks. Aside from the usual Sakurai-isms like how sometimes circular the conversations can get sometimes and some explanations lasting maybe a second longer than they should, I actually have been enjoying the story a fair bit so far. Kintoki's a fun ally, I'm always happy to watch over Fuuma's mum and Douman doing Douman things is neat. Outside of the story it's also really nice to see all the enthusiasm both English and Japanese Douman fans have towards him

    How high up in the Heian government was the Minister of the Left position? I've never even heard of Michinaga before.

    The first rank of the Department of State is the Chief Minister.
    The Chief Minister is the most important person in government, but he's deemed so important that he has no official duties unless a major crisis forces his intervetion.

    The second rank is the Minister of the Left, the Minister of the Right, and the Minister of the Center.
    The Minister of the Left is the de facto person who calls the shots in the administration.
    The Minister of the Right has the duty of supporting the Minister of the Left.
    And the Minister of the Center works full time as the Emperor's personal advisor while also having to replace either the Minister of the Right or Left when one of them was unavailable.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Whenever FGO does Japanese stories I tend to get lost because they don't usually explain characters and concepts the way they do with other places. Which I mean, that makes sense obviously, Japanese readers are going to know Japanese history and don't need it told to them by the game. But as an international audience, I tend to get pretty lost whenever they just talk about things like this. I spend a lot of time on Wikipedia in Japan-heavy stories.

    I think it can be confusing when any form of Government is used. I find in fgo it easy by just saying this person they follow is high up and if no one high shows, or is only talked about but never appears, in the story I just say they are in charge. It make it easier, at least for me, to follow and not get lost in extra info. I have not got far yet but for me right now no matter who they say is in charge I think the highest is the Evil Jester.

    Side note do we get SQ Fragments now with each story?

    Googling Fujiwara clan, they're effectively the rulers of Japan during Heian period, and their authority surpasses emperors. And the clan's reign was at its highest during Michinaga's time.

    Offering my apologies for all the slandering I have Castoria and Gogh (not about the latter's lore though, I still don't love it) for facilitating all the nonsense I've been pulling this chapter.
    Admittedly this chapter's boss fights are way easier than Olympus', but I also feel like I shouldn't be 4 turning break bar bosses lol.
    Also my thanks to the Origin bullet CE, I have slapped that on my DPS and got some AMAZING results

    Nah, Heian was pretty easy to clear compared to the main story chapters in Part 2. Go full bond team setup for max bond points.

    Unless you're trying to min-turn, it's really not that bad though.

    It is if you rolled in with a bond team that may or may not have had an Archer, not that I would've ever done something like that.

    You NA guys have blue rocks though right? Just abuse those imo.

    Don't have blue prisms yet, no. We got the white ones recently but not the blue.

    I was under the impression that Kagekiyo had a larger role in this chapter but what she did have was the highlight so far imo

    I'm not to far yet just beat act 5 but
    Spoiler:
    Even though I knew we'd see her I have to ask why have Tama show up and not use her? This is before she was found out heck it is maybe 100 before that. I think this is her only appearance too which is sad for me.


    The story is every griping and I have not found the battle to hard, though I use a Tamamo, Castoria, and any art hitter that has an advantage. I'm really enjoying this arc so far.

    Tsuna being a male Saber means certain Archers' time to shine.

    Thought keys misses the point of Taoism=Philosopy of Laozi and Chuangzi, which is the whole reason why I made the switch to Philosophy Magecraft myself. The privileged domains of the Philosophy Foundation becoming "protected memory space" feels a bit random to me, I can't tell how exactly they got to where they ended at, but I think that's a much cooler name and a good fit for the image of the PF as huge share data server.
