Guys we all know that the AG section has a small community of active members... so I allow you guys to get away with more than you would in one of the bigger sections.
But please still try and follow the rule that if your going to post... make sure that they are on topic and not one-liners.
@Atobe: But Tuning doesn't really = sex. They just touch. Ringo and Ikki are kissing right now, but it's before the Tuning. Not during the Tuning.
sora's very legs and feet ARE ATs, that's why he doesn't need to "wear" them. The fact that he's wearing shoes simply means he's not using them
The legs are just pieces of metal that he wears the Wind Regalia on. But yeah, if he's wearing shoes, then you're right, he won't be able to use the Regalia. Until he takes the shoes off.
If thats what you want to think. Of course its not actual sex but its pretty obvious what its implying...unless its necessary to sensually untie her hair and what not to tune her lol.Quote:
I really do not understand the point of wasting that much a chapter devoted to the BS (much of it which did not give insight into tuning) of Ikki v Ringo and alot of talking of the girls about most likely useless information. The only way this is amended is if all of Kururu's dialogue was about finishing the ultimate regalia (this damn new regalia seems like it'll be even more crazy than the usable sky regalia and not the statue computer interface).
Only way I will feel better is if Kiric's complete awesomeness is unleashed next chapter. (By him somehow attacking Sora whilst avoiding Rika)
Every manga does this, don't single out O!G for it lol. I just want to see Kiric kick some ass or at least flashback of the fight....off screen fights are lame...off screen fights we've been waiting for...for what..over a year now? Is rather :V worthy.Quote:
japanese raw is out...
-ttt are in full swing of handling the support system of the tuning. ikki and ringo are just about to start on their part but ringo stops ikki for a moment because she's nervous. ikki takes the initiative and undoes her hair and kisses her.
-emily/omaha whistles in approval but mentally wonders if he said too much earlier (back when he lead ikki in, he talked about the tuning process as well as his opinion of how cute a couple kururu and ikki make).
-kururu is going through the data that is being processed from the tuning as it begins. she comments on how the 'new rhythm' is taking things further (ringo's 'data' is very helpful in this tuning). reviewing each core she says: "the wheel is rumble, the scorching heat of flames, the sharp fang, the adamant gem, with the swiftness of thunder... gives birth to wind"
"it seems like a new 'road' no one has seen...
but actually this melody was being made little by little since that day we met by chance. the rhythm called 'potential' is coming together one by one."
-suddenly some equipment blows up and the tuning is interrupted and the system is starting to shut down. hako jumps on it and repairs the damage on the cable thing. hako volunteers herself to maintain the hardware connections and has other tuners help her with that. hako also states that kururu is her 'goal' (to beat).
-kururu is thankful for such a great team and friends and continues on with the data processing. we see a glimpse of ikki and ringo during tuning (though they aren't doing anything but standing there)
-back at the tower, minami is getting interviewed by tanaka (tv head guy). minami says he's 45yrs old, and starts talking about the 28 grav kids of the 1st generation. how they wore a-ts that were what we now call regalias. minami is asked what happened to the other 20 grav kids and minami says they are no longer around because sora 'ate' them.
-sf has been taken down with only kiric still standing against sora and rika. sora says he will make the tower kiric's tomb.
so... sora has been killing off grav kids? minami proved that all the grav kids had their own regalia when they left the tower so that means om, gabi, nina and whoever head wrap guy is have actual regalias. the noyamano sisters and kiric were the only ones in sf without any genuine regalia (2nd gen grav kids didn't have regalia and kiric lost his to sora). i am also gonna guess that sora has been taking each regalia as he kills off grav kids... i guess that means that ikki may not be the only one who has a regalia made up from several cores. if that's the case, why did nike need to use the gem regalia if he has his own regalia? unless in the pursuit of killing grav kids, nike lost his own (or it got destroyed).
and 28 (1st generation) grav kids?
8. head wrap guy
10. black burn
and 14 more that we were never introduced to... am i missing anyone on this list of revealed grav kids from the 1st gen? i'm thinking that tanaka thinks only 8 are left given the 1st sf team. (ine and rika weren't grav kids but there was rune and simca) i don't know why minami just said that the rest were 'eaten' by sora, but from my count there are 10 grav kids still alive (at the moment) from the 1st gen (#1-11 but minus nike), 3 witnessed deaths and one is uncertain (dontores). if sora did get the other 14 then that's potentially 15 cores when you include bagram at sora's disposal. i guess the playing field is still in sora's favor since he has more regalias... of course that's only if he combined them or did something more with his magic legs (like has several spots on his leg for different cores).

Nike's regalia is the wind regalia, one of the earlier chapters stated that Nike was the properties of both the wind road and gem road. In the flashback with Gazelle where Nike and Sora were kids, they both had the wind regalia. Nike and Sora probably had one each and Nike just gave his to Sora.
Is it me or does OG shit on continuity? He changes shit so offen I think he even loses track of what he's wrote. Its no wonder why people can't keep track of shit in OG's manga when he has no consistency in the story. I swear he'll add stuff to a chapter because it suits the chapter even if it contradicts something he wrote a few chapters earlier.
And yeah, Kataomoi is right; Nike was said to be able to catch the wind as a child, like Sora. Nike and Sora were shown in the Gazelle and Kaito flashback to each have one wheel of the Wind Regalia core.
i doubt that the grav kids had only half set of regalia. i honestly believe that nike lost his in a fight of chasing down other grav kids (i mean, the other grav kids didn't consider him a 'king' level rider back then, so him getting his broken by another grav kid is a possiblity). the only other option would be that sora and nike had shared both of their regalias - as in each had 2 different cores (it kinda looked wierd in the flashback we saw them lining up their a-ts and both front and back wheels seemed to be activated. then afterwards, nike still lost his so only sora was left with his and nike started to use kiric's after he got them.
i'm not sure about om, gabi, nina and head wrapped guy, but saying 'you guys use sub regalia' doesn't precisely mean 'all of you guys use sub regalia'. back in ch 206, where ringo talks with kanon about her new sub regalia, kanon does say 'you guys' but not specifically 'everyone' in current sf using it...
君達/きみたち = you (plural)
皆/みんな = everyone
of course, sf could simply just stick to their unspoken standard of not using any regalia and in the aftermath of defeating old sf, they had stored theirs away and haven't used them since.
The current Sleeping Forest believes in using Sub-Regalia to destroy the existing, real Regalia. Of course they aren't going to use real Regalia. Though, that also means that Kilik won't accept the Gem Regalia back. They might have to pick a new Gem King, if Ikki does give back all of the cores that are combined into his (I'm hoping he'll give them back after having fought Sora, or at least that he'll give the Fang and Flame cores back to Agito and Kazu once they've recovered enough to ride again).
WTF? 28 F*ING REGALIAS. Man, Oh Great is risking a lot by making these twists to the story. Setting everything so that even with the storm regalia, which contains Fang, Rumble, Flame, Rising, and Gem Road, can't face Sora, and his 21 Regalias (maybe this fella has undergone a procedure like Aeon's to use so many regalias, because uite frankly, I don't think so many pieces can fit the mechanized legs ha has. At the very least, the Ikki x Ringo path seems more plausible
