27.8.2013 速瀬 水月

Around a year ago I threw out somewhat comprehensive article about Kimi ga Nozomu Eien. That article still stands as the longest article on the site, and I intend to keep it that way. I know it’s an exhaustive read and that not all of my readers wish to see such huge things being posted. The post is heavy to load due to amount of links and images.  It’s messy and full of meta-humour that makes little to no sense. Yet, next to the Muv-Luv article it’s one of my popular posts without a doubt. Now, the text has been properly edited as per my current standards and has been modified slightly here and there with new, embarrassing afterwords. The old name, which was just a placeholder name originally, has been finally been replaced with the real name of the article. It’s a little bit new, a lot more something fixed, and then some extra.

This year is also the tenth anniversary of the Kimi ga Nozomu Eien TV animation. The exact date is in October, so I still have time to scheme something for that date. I might do a proper review on the series as a standalone entity, but before that I need to review Total Eclipse. It’s way overdue, but that what happens when life gets in your way.

Why are you releasing the updated article today, you might ask. The answer to this is that today is the birthday of Hayase Mitsuki, and also the day of the accident that threw Haruka into coma. Within the fictional universe of âge, it’s now fifteen years since that accident. As such, I felt that putting the updated version out felt appropriate.

I have to give special thanks to my editor, who edited the whole thing within a week. She absolutely hates the story and would like to stab me in the face for liking Mitsuki, but she was a trooper and waged through all the 40+ pages of text while mostly keeping the cursing and yelling in instant messaging  rather than writing into the article. She’ll be so excited in October, I bet.

Without holding too much back, I present you the remix of To step from Eternity to the Future; This is a story of love and guild; a story of friends Eternal.

Happpy birthday, Mitsuki

  1. Great news on a great day indeed.

    It’s a shame that most people will only know Mitsuki through her depiction in the anime, which as far as I understand is very unflattering when compared to the VN. Perhaps one day someone will translate the VN and let the world know the other side of the story.

    If nothing else, at least her deeds in Alternative more than make up for all she did in KimiNozo for me.

  2. The anime is why people hate Takayuki,Mistuki, and pretty much every other character. If I didn’t know that the VN is better and that the Anime was essentially the creators choosing some of the most retarded game decisions/consequences and mixing/matching for enhanced emo drama…(That cheating UGH) I’d hate the characters as well. I liked your Kimi post btw.

    On another note, how do you feel about the apparently in development game where Takeru/Takasyuki switch bodies? I’ll have to be disappointed if any heroine swapping occurs. The Kimi girls never showed any romantic interest in Takeru and I’m afraid this is just some perverse service for some of the more base fans.

    1. I was really looking for it, but seeing how âge has decided to put everything else on hold except Muv-Luv sidestories, I can’t help but to think how long it’ll take them to announce the cancellation. If it ever comes to, like Melvina Maniax, the correct time is past as most Muv-Luv fans won’t have an connection with Takayuki.
