DESPITE THE FACT THAT I HAD THIS DONE FOR A WHILE just never put it up on the journal properly.

So Last Exile Night 3 happened! And once again we were treated to a live drama from their seiyuu. This drama was written by the author of the novels, and takes place sometime before the series proper; I have no idea if this drama has a title like the old one did! If it has one, nobody mentioned it or I somehow missed it completely.

One whole day of the event was dedicated to Dio and Lucciola and they had other fun things and tidbits which can be read here! Including a ... thing that I actually submitted thinking it would be ignored, but I was the one who requested for Noda to ICly sing the birthday song to Lucciola. :x AND SHE DID IT BUT ALSO GOT THE WHOLE ROOM TO SING ALONG and then they said that Lucciola's birthday would be on the day Dio named him and guys I can't believe my request turned into that I still start blushing and grinning like an idiot knowing I bonded with LE nerds on the other side of the world somehow. .///. Sempais noticed me.

Anyway yes. THIS DRAMA IS CUTE JUST LIKE THE FIRST and features Dio being weird, jumping out of vanships, playing in mud and Lucciola drinking water from his hands.

DRAMA TIME DRAMA TIME, INFO WITHIN! )

WE PART 2 NOW. Please refer to this post for the first series ones including a special video for Dio fabulousness. Basically Last Exile has the best character-narrated episode previews in the world. So now that the Fam DVDs are out and subbed and has them, clearly it was time.

DIO IS ONLY IN ONE BUT IT'S. AMAZING. LOOK.




The compilation for the whole series is here! Includes gems such as TEDDY BEING THE FUCKING ULTIMATE ALPHA JESUS CHRIST I WAS CRYING WITH LAUGHTER oh my god TEDDY. Also Sophia and Vincent vaguely breaking the fourth wall, Vasant being creeper Farahnaz fan #1 and Orang's long suffering life at being Sorush's friend.

Hi I did things with the goal to do more fandom related projects and also because fandom is so scattered all over different network/blog sites nowadays.

http://www.over-the-sky.net/

Is a domain/forum newly launched with the intent to serve as a network for fans and tons of info and other fun stuff. Participation is the key and I hope that building up a website and community will be fun and everyone pitches in! Please join in and say hi on the forum and let's do fun things.

(I HOPE PEOPLE STILL FOLLOW THIS JOURNAL AND SEE THIS HELLO I LOVE YOU)

OKAY FOLKS HERE WE GO.

First, before the novel which is under the cut, Aerial Log as a whole didn't have much in terms of new artwork. Just the anime stuff that was in the monthly magazines (which are all online IIRC since I have them all saved), and the novel illustrations (which are under the cut with the novel!). There's no timeline (boo), but there is a staff table talk as well as World Report-- which IS texty so hopefully serves as enough of a background description about the Earthside of things.

There is a sketchy thing of Tatiana and Alis though so here.

And here are a couple of Diocentric things before we get into the novel:
- The novel after talk calls Fam Dio "a big brother Dio who is bright and dependable." More after novel talk will be under the cut at the end of the novel, mainly concerning Lucciola and feels and things that make Tara cry a lot.

- Repeat of the whole Dio is the captain of the Silvius vanship team, but hates being bound by military rules so is off wandering on his own and calling it "reconnaissance" (since it ends up being).

- The blurb on the fight with Alauda toward the end-- mainly the text on the side of the vanship that they translate as "Lucciola's seat" in the episode says: "The rear seat of Dio's vanship was originally the constant position of his his closest friend and biggest partner, Lucciola. In the fourth episode, Dio stopped Millia from touching one of the levers, because Lucciola is still a precious existence to him. In this episode (19), even though Alvis didn't do anything, the hose naturally came off and saved Dio in his crisis. Perhaps it's the spirit of Lucciola, still by Dio's side." ABLOOBLOOBLOO MY BABIES.

- Profiles just make references to how he served as Al's escort/bodyguard (Dio and Al's profiles) and has a longstanding relationship with Dagobert (Dagobert's profile).

AND WITH THAT, here is the translation for the novel, "Friends". YOUR USUAL DISCLAIMERS APPLY. Moon is not great, worded things so it reads less choppy, Alison and TK are the wind beneath my wings for help with lines and other things. o/

AND THEN GETTING MY LOLI REMINDED ME I NEVER POSTED THIS!! In the BD booklets, they released an entire script for another .5 episode called Middle Game that was planned to air between episodes 11 and 12. It focuses on Vincent and Al playing chess (AND DIO HAS CLEARLY TAUGHT HER WELL!!! My grasshopper.) as Vincent infodumps all about Ades and its generals and Turan and warstuff.

It's really great and informative and should have been the .5 instead of 9.5 because 9.5 was boring. :(

Translation is by the super cool LE scanon and at most I just reworded a couple of things.

Also Vincent knows his shit complimenting Dio huehuehue.

So the new Linkage artbook has two awesome things in it.

One is an early design of Dio.



And the other is MY HEADCANON BECOMING REAL AGAIN since I had one about Lavie being the one fixing his hair for him guys it's like Yzak all over again with things coming true I love this. ALSO LUCCI GHOST WATCHING. YOU GUYS OH MY GOD MY BABIES.



I have to say while I'm glad they ended up cutting Dio's hair because wow he looks even more fem I didn't think that was possible, dat uniform is doing things to me. So with both images I think I'm going to go with that his hair did grow out a lot (since Lucci wasn't there to do it for him anymore and he was like eh effort. Seriously look at Lucci in that pic he is like "bitch doesn't know how to cut Lord Dio's hair properly like I did oh my God poor Lord Dio") and at some point Lavie was just like dude so he was like fine okay cut it for me. And it ended in disaster as pictured so he had to let his bangs regrow out. And since Dio knows how to make clothes in canon (like how he made Al's outfit for her) he has. His own special uniform that he made for himself that looks somewhat like that for real super important Anatoray things-- meaning he wears it once in a blue moon (read: not at all). Because I really just want an excuse to say that uniform exists somewhere. '-'

Like I even just quick shooped to see how he looks with his normal hair in it and oh that came out very nice looking oh. Oh.

Really though I'm just dead here at the hair picture because guys I was not expecting anything with Lucciola at all and aaaaaa aaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa babies.

Because this is the perfect opportunity.

So with the vague mention in the last BD about Dio's direct connection to Claus' situation in Fam (CLICK), last night along with a new Linkage Character File going on sale at Comiket, a Fam Aerial Log was announced to be released soon. Also announced (whether or not it will be its own novel or a story in the Aerial Log itself I'm not 100% sure on yet, BUT STILL!!!) was an additional story about the untold story of Dio and Claus and their relationship between series. So we might actually get answers not only about what happens with Claus but hopefully shedding some more light on Dio's recovery?! GUYS I'M SO FUCKING ECSTATIC AT THIS POSSIBILITY.

On one hand I'm like, well it's Last Exile and after Travelers who knows what this will be. But on the other it's like oh my god still MORE CANON and the original Aerial Log had the timeline and so much world info and we're getting it for Fam after all of my screaming of WE NEED YOU ARTBOOK INFO SUPPLEMENT. I can't wait and in the meantime I have Fam novels to do and eventually Linkage 02 to scan and and. Once this/possibly these if the story is something else comes out it's translation time again!

SO IN CELEBRATION OF THIS I wanna link my (MY BIG OL CANON POST) so you can watch this series. (I am also willing to burn and send people the series if that's preferable for them) As well as (MY MONSTER APP THESE CHARACTERS POST). Because once this story comes out omg omg I'm gonna want a Claus so much more than I already do. '-' CLAUS AND AL AND MILLIA AND GISEY AND DYAN AND TATIANA GUYS. App them. And Vincent and Mullin and Sara and Lavie and everyone aaaaaaaaa.

I'm also excited because I wonder how much more terrible they are going to make Dio's life with this.

First series done! I'm coming for you soon Fam novels.

- MY MOON IS NOT REALLY VERY GOOD AT ALL I just have an arsenal of tools to get a PRETTY OKAY jist of what is going on - enough to extrapolate things and turn it into something readable. Also ty to Alison who helped out with lines and parts I just went ??????? at.

- Since these are novels and not artbook things, there is a little more extrapolation because of the format a lot of novels like this is in. Aka I merge and reword some things so it looks more nicely weaved together in English.

- HOPEFULLY NOTHING TOO HUGE IS COMPLETELY WRONG? :V


This post covers:
- Dio being bloody and crackers
- Claus having the attention span of a rock
- The mechs keeping Lucciola in their kokoros
- ... Dio's ending which I cannot even explain

This post covers:
- Dio bothering Claus and Lavie in the hangar.
- Dio and Lucciola meeting Dagobert, with more sister feelings.
- Alis and Dio picking up Claus and Tatiana after the battle with the Urbanus (only they find them in the Galahad Ruins instead of the desert)
- Dio and Claus helping rescue Sophia (NOTE ABOUT THIS: I believe, since I am not going through the whole novel, to save room they ended up merging Sophia's capture and rescue with Delphine's rose petal entrance, so rescuing her turned into a Silvana-aided event. That's what I gather from the princess in the tower line from the really short scene before, anyway)
- Delphine's big entrance!!!!! :'D...
