So, I looked through Kagami’s interviews in the fanbooks to see what facts about the OnS world could be ascertained from them. 3 interviews in total, one in Fanbook 8.5 and two in Fanbook 108; I guess I will summarize/translate them later because there are interesting little things about Kagami’s views and workprocess in them that could be used to base certain fuzzy guesses and theories. For now though, only facts about the OnS world Kagami voiced himself (highlighted in red on the pics).
- there are 3 third progenitors in total
This bit is from Kagami’s interview in Fanbook 8.5, page 175, and I mentioned it in my previous post. To name those 3: Krul Tepes, Lest Kerr, Gabel Pathe. The whole sentence: “Vampires also have social classes, and there are 3 third progenitors in total among them.”
- vampires have no body temperature
This is mentioned in Kagami’s talk with the seyuu in Fanbook 108, page 87: “Currently, I’m writing a novel about vampires for JBOOKS, and vampires have no body temperature and no interest in anything except for blood. Moreover, they lived for too long and got tired of all things. It’s fun but also difficult to write them as having no body heat.”
- all the vampires, including progenitors, were once human
Same interview, same page:
Kagami: Originally, vampires were humans.
Irino(Yuu’s seiyuu): Eh?! They were?!
Nakamura(Guren’s seiyuu): You mean, except for the progenitors?!
Kagami: No, including the progenitors.
- neither Shinoa’s nor Mitsuba’s Cursed Gear is the Black Demon series
Inoue: By the way, among the 5 members of the Shinoa squad, which one is the strongest?
Kagami: Yuu and Kimizuki are the two indisputable top fighters. However, they’re strong in close combat, but if we talk long range fighting, then Youichi is stronger.
Inoue: What about Shinoa and Micchan?
Kagami: Well, the two girls aren’t the Black Demon Cursed Gear users, so.
Now, what bothers me is that I haven’t found anything about vampires not having sex drive anywhere in there. It might be that I missed something in the fanbooks when reading, though I meant to read quite thoroughly… which leads me to the following: can anyone point out please where to look for the confirmation of that particular bit of information?
