Just assume for the rest of the day this is an XV Ultimania translation blog.
Again, grain of salt. I’m trying but very rusty.
The gods of the ‘six’ were mentioned in myth of Eos. They are closely related to the royal family. The ring of light was made by the Six and handed over as a generous gift as proof of the king. Very few people can speak to the gods and it takes a messenger to appreciate their language, which can not be understood by ordinary people. The battle of the gods traces back and is said to have broken out over a betrayal of the god Ifrit, but further details are not widely known.
Depending on your responses with the Luna notebook, it influences the item description at the end of the game. If you answer badly entire time it will say “there’s a trace of dust” on it when you can see it as a key item. If you’re nice, it will state the book is “well worn.” If your responses are favorable then it will say “There are tears on the pages.” Translator Note: This is not exact as the descriptions will be different between english and JP.
A mad scientist who aims to create the strongest existence by his own hand. He is in charge of the laboratory of the Nifelheim empire. The man who succeeded in mass producing magical soldiers based on the information provided by Ardyn. He does not hesitate, and regarded the six gods as just another research material.
The scene with leviathan was supposed to be luna’s moment. Like Yuna in FFX, or Aeriths in FF7. While Yuna is sad to do her duty, Luna is determined and strong.
It’s heavily implied Cor’s nickname “The Immortal” is meant to be mocking for running from Insomnia before the fall.
More Ardyn with Commentary
Translators Note: This one was very difficult to translate for me. The descriptor pointed to something taboo or ‘dirty’ besides how wrong it already was. This one is heavily implied rather than straight out said.
What were the dolls at the end of game?
Tabata: This is a description of how long Ardyn waited for Noctis. he is a sloppy personality with a.. depraved satisfaction unlike normal people. He is the kind of character to make this 'dirty’ (not as-in grimy. dirty) scenery and play with it while he waited.
Ardyn was trying to achieve his victory by defeating Noctis as king, but was it purely for revenge?
Tabata: I wonder if there was a profound reason besides wanting to taste the highest pleasure of revenge on a strengthened Noctis. The misfortune of Noctis was based on my own happiness.
Translators Note: Dirty in the first statement is perverse. It also seems like Tabata gets off on the ending of the game. Explains a lot.It also seems like the corpses in the throne room were real bodies, a testament of Ardyns ability to preserve. It’s loosely stated Ardyn had much more power than he used, to the point of implying Noctis was allowed to win for the sake of Ardyn emerging victorious.
Director commentary states the ending of the game was left purposefully vague, so that the player could decide what happens in the end. It is left entirely up to interpretation.
Julieandem: New Years greetings from a parallel universe. Wish you all the best for 2017.
Even is in the bathroom at the Kollektivet with wet hair and a white shirt on. ISAK stands in front of him trying to knit his tie. He’s struggling and doesn’t exactly seem very good at it (even though he of course says he is). EVEN smiles and reaches over to the sink to grab his beer. He takes a sip.
ISAK: You have to stand still baby
EVEN laughs: Evi?
ISAK doesn’t understand: evi?
EVEN: Did you call me Evi?
ISAK: I called you baby
EVEN laughs: Sounded like you said Evi
ISAK: Why would I call you Evi?
EVEN: dunno, like a nickname
ISAK laughs: Nickname?! Hell no.
ISAK straightens the knot: Done.
EVEN turns to the mirror and looks at his tie, smiles and kisses Isak.
EVEN: Ready for partying, then.
ISAK takes a sip from his beer: Really ready for 2017
EVEN: What are your wishes for the new year?
ISAK: That they dethrone Trump.
EVEN: That’s being a bit of an asshole, considering he’s your uncle.
ISAK: I know, but he’s pretty much an asshole himself so I think he’ll handle it. What do you wish for?
EVEN: That you learn how to tie a tie.
ISAK laughs: Haha fuck you.
EVEN smiles and kisses Isak: Just kidding. I don’t wish for shit. Just that everything is just as now.
ISAK smiles and kisses Even.
EVEN fixes Isak’s bangs: Well, Happy New Year, baby.
ISAK: Happy New Year, Evi.

Quartet Night LIVE Evolution 2017
Have safely finished.
Really thank you very much.
This time’s LIVE is, just as Shou nii said in the main part
As our goal to『repay』everyone we repeatedly rehearsed etc. Everyone who we can see who came to the venue, and though we couldn’t see, everyone who came to watch the Live Viewing. Everyone’s smiles, while feeling happiness, while thinking, we stood on the stage.
At 5th rehearsals some days before the real thing the 4 of us gathered! Although there were specific things that happened.
This time, during the rehearsal period for about 1 week, the 4 of us Quartet Night was together the whole time.
In the anime, there were training camps, a lifestyle where they lived together.
Being able to have a taste of that sense, we wondered can the 4 of us gave it our all as 4 on stage and be able to give a believable performance.
Hearing Tatsu nii, Tomo nii, and Shou nii whining, saying they don’t want the live to end, hearing them say such words, really came directly to my chest.
Of course I was like that too.
We were together the whole time after all.
It may be a senpai kouhai relationship but, to me, Reiji, Ranmaru, Camus and Ai’s relationship, having spent such a long time together… It feels like I’ve made 3 older brothers.
The feeling of not wanting to separate has sprung from my heart.
Of course I think, I want to
Be with everyone at the venue, forever.
We did special training for tens of hours.
The moment we felt for 3 hours or so ended just like that. Enphemeral.
But, from now on too, even with that transient part of a bad time, I want to give everyone a taste of that heated time again.
I want to take this feeling and break through to 6th.
Honestly, personally, there were regretful parts as well.
For those parts too!
And, once again, this work
All of the staff.
My gratefulness to so many of you who love this work.
One more time.
how does one draw beards, besides selling their soul to Satan?
no soul-selling! it’s pretty simple
well, what i’m gonna show you is pretty simple
so let’s take these baby-faces:
having the jawline/chin/etc down pretty accurate is important! because the beard grows from there!
dudes all have a specific growth pattern on their face. when doing a 5 o’clock shadow, you can pretty much just follow that and fill it in with a gray/their hair color at a low opacity
with the growth pattern and jawlines and mind, it’s pretty easy to make a readable beard by doing little lines that follow those patterns! i never do a straight line to draw beards. it’s an option, but it’s tough to make look natural lol–i don’t even do that for comics! but once the hairs are curved along the jawline, i think getting rid of the visible jawline helps show thickness/structure to the beard itself
as beards get longer, you can lengthen the lines and make them have more minds of their own, as they begin to stop conforming with the face!
so that’s about it. if you want beards with a little more texture, remember that beards grow in layers. they grow just like hair! but…on..on the face.
Hanyu Yuzuru talks about Machida Tatsuki’s “Sudden Retirement”
It’s difficult to put into words but, ‘comrade’? - it feels like that. The term 'rival’ is also very close (in meaning) but no matter what you want to call it, it’s not that kind of prickly (relationship) - of course, during competitions we're both very very prickly towards each other and we don’t really talk very much.
But it’s not like that, both of us together have been aiming for the same kind of place, aiming for the same kind of stage, aiming for the same kind of location*. We have fought our way forward, together. (He’s) that kind of comrade (to me).
Of course he’s a big senior (to me) so calling him a comrade might be considered disrespectful but, I think that probably, Machida would also say the same thing for me.
A short but very respectful interview filled with quiet emotion.
The other thing suspicious was the message on each of their post :
-I kindly ask people not to link my blog to twitter or facebook, it
brings traffic from Japan and the less Japanese people who know about
this blog the better!- “
If by that they mean that they count on the fact the japanese artists couldn’t find their blog to use their works against their will without them knowing, this is really disrespectful…….. So we won’t hesitate to contact each of them!
But we need the fandom help too!

Thank you for reading and be careful~
