Friendly reminder: DO NOT PIRATE OTOME GAMES. WE WILL NOT GET MORE OFFICIAL LOCALIZATIONS BY PIRATING THEM. AT LEAST THE ONES ALREADY OFFICIALLY TRANSLATED TO ENGLISH. PLEASE SUPPORT THE COMPANIES THAT ARE MAKING AN EFFORT TO INTRODUCE OTOME GAMES IN OTHER COUNTRIES. THANK YOU. Continue scrolling away.
So we know that gems can fuse. And when they fuse, they usually have different bodies that has four arms, three eyes or just arms for their feet etc.
And did you know that in Hinduism -or like in an Indian myth- there is a FUSION? Yeah that’s right. A fusion. But where?
Well you see, in the myth, a goddess named Durga fights devils(?). It’s actually a symbol for destroying, but it can be shown as a good goddess too.
But Durga is actually a fusion. She is the fusion of three big gods: Vishnu, Shiva and Brahman. But why do three gods fuse and make a goddess? To fight a really strong devil(?) named Mahishasura, did not obey Brahman, and wished living forever. But Brahman did not accept his wish. Then Mahishasura wished for another thing. He wished a woman to end his life. But Brahman did not accept that wish too.
Mahishasura got mad and attacked the gods. And he was strong. Gods realised that a power like this was hard to beat. So the three gods FUSED.
And Durga, a fusion fought Mahishasura. With her eight (or ten) arms that each had another weapon, Durga won the war.
I was thinking about when pearl was saying “we only fuse in deadly situations” and how later she is shown to fuse for fun, and garnet, etc. Which means she was being a hypocrite… But actually, I don’t think that’s what she meant at all.
Pearl was saying how Opal is only formed for deadly situations because thats when Ame and Pearl could find a peace or common ground. They had such an unstable relationship, like always fighting, that to be able to sync not only in dancing but in thought and goals was hard. So in deadly situations where they both are focused on one thing, like saving Steven, they can sync.
Pearl and Amethyst did not have a relationship good enough for them to fuse outside of a last resort out of desperations.
I think it kinda shows how much Ame and Pearl’s relationship has grown.
Honestly fusion has always been inconsistent. "We only fuse during deadly situations!" said Pearl a long time ago. And what was up with that whole "You've been fused for too long, you're losing yourselves!" thing from "Coach Steven? I guess fusion was a completely different thing in the early episodes. Maybe that's why Opal has NO personality.
Oh yeah I know, but it got a little out of hand in later seasons. Like Steven and Amethyst fusing without even dancing, Ruby fusing with Sapphire despite not being that close to her and Jasper fusing with that gem monster (which REALLY gets on my nerves that monster wanted to get as far away as it could from Jasper so how on earth was she able to create a whole new gem with it)
