And they got NoGoD’s Dancho as the quiz person! Plus a bunch of guests, like Yuketsuko, a MUCC manager trio, and gibkiy gibkiy gibkiy’s aie.
1) Intro Don! Satochi getting very excited about getting the first point, daw.
Featuring highlights like
- asked via videos of vistlip’s umi. At vistlips first life, they wanted to do a MUCC cover and phoned Yukke to ask if it was ok. What song? -> Daikirai. - for the 15th anniversary, the red/blue enpitsu (FC-only) lives, what were the first songs? -> Tsubasa wo kudasai for red / Nagoriyuki for blue
3) Satochi Quiz! - one of the first things Satochi did on Twitter? -> tweeted “retweet” instead of pressing the button. - When the MUCC schoolbag was still pretty new, Satochi used it and was stopped by the police. “Are you really a high school student?” What did he answer? -> “No, I’m on the way to a recording.” - Satochi ate something. “sweet! might be even better with soy sauce.” What did he eat? -> tissues.
4) The reward! FOOD! Miya got place 1, Tatsu place 2, so they got the best food.
“In any event, whatever one makes of American religion–its genially odd individualism, or its often ponderous stolidity, or its lunatic extremism, or its prodigies of kitsch, or its sometimes unseemly servility to a national mythology, or simply its unostentatious pertinacity–it is as well to realize that it is far more in harmony with the general condition of humanity throughout history than are the preposterous superstitions of secular reason or the vile ephemeralities of post-Christian popular culture. It is something alive and striving, which has the power to shelter innumerable natural virtues under its promises of supernatural grace. Most importantly, its strength and vitality portend something that might just survive the self-consuming culture of disenchantment; for, while it is possible that modernity may not have very much of a future, antiquity may very well prove deathless.“

So help me out. Which sets took place on Dominaria?
Alpha (and many future core sets)
Urza’s Legacy (but not all of it)
Magic Origins (but not all of it)
The plane of Rath (Tempest, Stronghold, Exodus & Nemesis) has since been overlaid with Dominaria.

The Japanese term 'karako’ generically refers to small Chinese children as they are portrayed in Japanese art. These children, depicted without reference to a specific sex but usually appearing to be boys, wear sets of Chinese traditional clothes and have bare heads except for two small tufts of hair. 'Karako’ can represent the wish to have a male successor who will gain high social status, and also is a benevolent symbol which brings luck, happiness and prosperity. 'Karako’ are divine beings in Japanese mythology that embody the innocence and wisdom that coexist in infants and the elderly; the transformational states that mark the beginning and end of life. The contemporary Japanese artist Akio Takamori has this to say about 'karako" iconography in general: “The infant boy is an embodiment of the vulnerable human life. Two opposed themes are joined in one body… his uncertainty and the expansiveness of his future and death.”
