Recently, I’ve started to think about how much the relationships between the Owari No Seraph characters have changed from the beginning of this manga [regardless the light novels] till recently because everything has changed to the way that I couldn’t even get clearly. So, let’s have a look through the flow of the story
At the very beginning, the relationship had been like this
So easy to get [Yup (￣▽￣) ]
After a while, it has started to change till it has seemed to be like this
Complex, but still easy to get ╮(︶▽︶)╭
After that, it has started to be more complex in the way that cannot be easily understood (￣_￣)・・・, but the last chapter has started to show us a clear image. So, according to it, we can say that the relationships have become like this chart
This means that the whole parties share the same target, which is finding the one behind everything.
[Why haven’t I mentioned Saito?
Because I don’t wanna go through a maze after I’ve started to get something (ーー;) ]
Note: Guren’s & Ferid’s team contains many different creatures. This could lead us towards the essential value of Owari No Seraph, which is the real meaning of family.
What do I mean (•ิ_•ิ)?
Go back to the last chart and focus on it. What can you get?
Let me explain it for you
There are three separate groups that strive for the same target. The first group which I’ve named it Kureto’s represents the humans. The second one is the vampires and the last one is a union of different creatures.
What is the relation between that and the value that Kagami sensei is working to deliver [the value of the family]?
I think he wants to show us the exact meaning of family, which can be truly represented by the last group. The real family is the whole creatures live on the earth. They need to work together to get rid of the darkness. This thing cannot be achieved by humans only nor another specific kind of creatures, too.
OMG..That was very hard to explain (◎ ◎)ゞ
Hope you could get what I have exactly meant (ᵔ.ᵔ)
Finally, as always, you can add to, discuss or even correct my thoughts ♡
Optimus Prime Sir, how many Cybertronian writing systems are there? How many can you read? Is it true that Autobots and Decepticons use different scripts for the same language? I heard you're the one who taught Megatron to read and how to speak like an educated bot instead of a pit slave, is that true? Do you like one human language or language family more (or less) than any of the others?
「♚」 ◦ NOW HERE’S CORRESPONDENCE fit for a ( former ) Archivist. Forgive him if he answers them out of order ; some are easier explained than others.
❝ Megatron could read LONG before I had so much as heard of him━━it was a necessity if he were to make his political ideas available to the largest audience. As far as I know, he was taught by a fellow Kaoni, a mech whose name he gave me once as Terminus, and then refused to ever mention again. I merely helped him acquire academic fluency in High Iaconian━━otherwise known as the Primal Vernacular━━the language of Imperial government. ❞
❝ As far as Autobot and Decepticon use of language goes, in fact, it is almost the other way around. We both use the same few writing systems, but, on average, speak a SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT group of languages. This is because of the geographic locations from which each force recruited most fighters, which in turn were driven by sociological forces within the Empire. Mecha from the north, particularly from the areas around Iacon and Praxus, and from the northern and western Centralian States, overwhelmingly chose the Autobot side. Mecha from the southern industrial regions of Tarn and Kaon, the most populous states of Golden Age Cybertron, went to the Decepticons. Indeed, those states were where the ideology first developed. ❞
History lesson thus dispensed, he paused for a long moment, considering the next topic. Long fingers traced the edges of his cheek vents in thought.
❝ As far as human languages go, I find some more intuitivethan others, but all are equally fascinating to me. I will admit to being drawn to the Uralic languages in particular━━I am currently developing linguistic application packs in Finnish and Hungarian as a side project. Part of what I enjoy about those languages are their agglutinative word structure( in that many affixes can be added to a single word in order to modify its semantic meaning ). The other languages I am currently working in are Welsh, Turkish, Farsi, Urdu, and Tagalog. These will bring the number of human languages I am fluent in up to TWENTY-THREE. ❞
❝ Now, as far as Cybertronian languages go, the vast majority of our tongues are written using three different systems. The first, and oldest, is the ideographic system we have called PRAYER GLYPHS, this nomenclature referring to the fact that our earliest records of this written language are exclusively liturgical in nature. If I was to pick a human equivalent, it would be
hànzì. Our glyphs differ a little in that they can be modified to a much greater extent than hànzi : they are divided into what we call ❛ primary ❜ glyphs, or glyphs indicating the semantic root of a word, and ❛ secondary ❜ glyphs, which modify the semantic root into a much more specific word, or attach personalised shades of meaning to the ideas the writer intends to convey. ❞
❝ The second writing system is known as HALF-BINARY. I am not entirely sure why. It is a much simpler system, based on the prayer glyphs but within an abjad structure. Many Cybertronian languages are hugely tonal, which means that vowel phonology can be extremely complex. Half-binary is often used for digital notation, and if I recall correctly there is a vowel system in use for such contexts, but the majority of written works in half-binary exclude the vowels altogether. ❞
❝ And, finally, the third system is MODERN STANDARD ORTHOGRAPHY. This is a combined script utilising ideographic elements as well as phonograms representing speech sounds, and determinatives representing unpronounced semantic categories, included as reading aids. The ideographs are made up of traditional prayer glyphs, simplified forms, and original forms━━that is, glyphs which were invented for this system. Modern Standard’s phonogram system tends to be abugida-like, with some more or less complex notational features.
━━an easily-comprehended concept ? He hoped so. Better rein himself in before it turned into a LECTURE.
❝ I myself can read all of these. My training as an Archivist was not at all skimped when it came to literacy. ❞
people so salty about andy in the new SU episode chill
Like…problematic people exist, but they’re people too. Andy definitely evoked a “backwards uncle” vibe that the crew was going for. And that made the gems (and the viewers) uncomfortable.
But isnt that what SU has been doing for the majority of its tenure? Helping kids (the real audience here) see Steven interact with a “problem” relative, and not shying away from wanting to know more about him, because even though gem stuff is WAY COOLER than human stuff, he wants to know and understand him because he doesn’t know all that much about it. Like when Steven and Andy are alone and they’re just peeling potatoes and Steven talks to Andy about his human family.
One of my favorite parts (among “why don’t we all get married” and Lapis casually tossing Steven at the plane) was Steven trying to relate the commonalities they have (“I love how we both eat cake!”), but still asking Andy to understand and give their ‘new’ family a chance. I think thats really awesome for kids (and adults) to not just see one perspective, but still holding firm to what you believe.
Tdlr Steven is a beautiful cartoon boy and he is my role model
I AM THAT I AM as Divine Source moves through me to stand and to be in UNIVERSAL PEACE.
I have come to Earth to see you—my Brothers, my Sisters, all colors, all creeds, as One Beloved Family of Humanity.
We come from One Source, One Light, standing on One Planet, as we breathe together the One Breath of Life.
I reach out my heart and hand to you, my Beloved Family of Humanity. I choose to align, to unite, to be an Instrument of Peace as we call forth our Galactic Brothers and Sisters, every Universal Being of Truth and Light.
Through One Divine Heart and Mind, with the Legions of Love and Light, and with all Beings everywhere, we call forth UNIVERSAL PEACE to prevail within us, upon the Earth, within the Heavens, within the Cosmos—Peace without end, NOW!
My name is Hadley and I would absolutely adore a pen pal. I have always been under the impression that I was born in the wrong century, connecting more with the slow gentility of the Jane Austen times. Of course I know things are better now and technology is freaking awesome (I mean tumblr and Netflix, like hello) but I think to have a pen pal with whom I can share all my day to day musings and deepest troubles that cannot be shared with anyone else would make my (and hopefully their) life infinitely better!
I am 17, turning 18 in October. I live in South Carolina in the good old USA, but I do not follow the possible southern stereotypes that may sway you away from me. I love reading classical novels (Jane Eyre and pretty much any Jane Austen being my weakness), listening to chill, acoustic music (John Mayer being a particular fav), creating art, going on bike rides, cuddling with my 3 cats, begging my parents for a dog, watching ALL movies (literally I love all genera’s), watching your usual cult TV shows (Doctor Who, Sherlock, Hannibal, etc), and I am neither religiously nor sexually firm (haha). I am going into my senior year of High School and have taken on a crazy amount of classes so I’m hoping for a pen pal who would be cool with chill conversation, little gifts, doodles, life advice, and fancy stationary (because I literally have a quill and ink pen I’ve been dying to use).
I’ve never had a pen pal before and don’t really know how this goes, but I am consumed with excitement! Just as a warning I only speak English and a little French (very badly I might add) so if we could communicate in English that would be really helpful! I’d really like someone around my age, but I live by the one human family mantra so gender, sexuality, and religion doesn’t sway my desire to be your pen pal!
