The plot thickens...

The thing about not getting a series all at once is that then you have more time to speculate. For movies and stuff, I'm usually happy to just let the movie tell me what all the plot twists are (though I am a little sad that, had Athena and I been sitting together and able to talk when we saw Unbreakable, we totally would have figured out the major twist), but with an ongoing series, where we have to wait and wait and wait and wait and...sorry, momentum, pretty much all you can do is speculate while you wait for the next installment.

This is especially true when you have enough time to re-watch or re-read the earlier installments. We saw the first three episodes of Pretear about four times in one weekend, and each time, we noticed a new thing that helped us figure out the major plot twist in that. Well, one of them.

And so, after translating DN Angel 11 for the second time, I realized something that has turned an observation about Krad into a theory.

So we go to the Asuka website to see if there's any hint of when there will be new DN Angel, and there's not, but it does say that in the next volume there will be something about "ano chuumoku no geemu," or "that game that everyone's paying attention to." Which of course makes us, or me, anyway, unbearably curious to know what "that game" is. Though I wouldn't be surprised at all if it ends up being one I've never heard of. Alas.

Today I'm thankful for honey nut Cheerios, honey nut Toasty-os, Byakuya ~True Light~, the DN Angel Trilogy CD, and pink clouds.
