Current Chapter Discussion: HP V8C4

posted in: Blog, Chapter Discussion | 2

I would definitely say that the highlight of this chapter was the real life duel of Prince vs. Cold Fox. As the chapter progressed Xiao Lan became more and more like Prince. Yang Ming also began acting like his online character personality. I think this chapter represents a shift in the story. Before this chapter, the characters’ online personas and their real life personas were kept separate. I think Xiao Lan’s transformation also represents a general fusion for all the characters. Their real life selves are merging with their game selves. So, the question is: “Which version is the real self?”

Philosophers and psychologists have been debating the about the concept of “self” for years. They still haven’t reached an answer. So for now, I just want to focus on Xiao Lan and the other characters.

  • Which is Xiao Lan’s “real” self? Her online persona or real life self? And the other characters?
  • Do the dictator of life and the other intelligent NPC’s have a “self”?
  • If in the future we develop AI’s like Kenshin and SunShine, would they face identity problems?
  • This chapter also argued the issue of the immortality. What might that mean for Fairsky and SunShine if Fairsky is the only one that will age?
  • And no spoilers please.

Another awesome chapter. I remember Ice fought Roland in the first volume, but I don’t think we’ve seen him in action since. This chapter really highlighted two things for me: 1) It showed us how awesome the Holy Knights are compared to normal people and 2) Revealed a bit more of Sun’s character too. This chapter seemed like it was comparing Sun’s abilities to what a Holy Knight should be able to do. Ice was acting as a foil [Foil (literature) to avoid confusion] to Sun. Those who have been reading up on Neo’s adventures will also know what Grisia is lacking ability-wise. His adventure party companions clearly won’t believe in a million years that Grisia is the Sun Knight. However, we the audience have the advantage. Sun is our hero and our protagonist. We know there’s more to him than meets the eye. The other Holy Knights follow his orders without question. The Pope entrusts him with the most tedious and delicate missions. He’s even friends with a death lord. I think this chapter was meant to take Sun down a peg before Yu Wo catapults him into a position of awesome. However, I could be mistaken. What do you all think?

–What are Sun’s key traits that have earned him such loyalty from his fellow knights? Ice suffered a great deal of humiliation in the previous chapters.
–What function do the members of the adventure party serve in the plot? Personally I think they’re a brilliant plot device.
–Has Ice gained any more fans?
–Will Yu Wo reveal more about each of the Holy Knights as we go along? Who’s your favorite so far and why?
–Best scenes from the volume thus far.
–Other interesting topics
–No spoiler please.

Phew~! I’m so happy that we got a silly break this chapter. The tension last time was almost too much for me. Scarlet (who may or not be Pink) has warned Grisia not to trust anyone. Which if you’re an amnesiac is really sound advice, but we must not forget that Grisia is a natural evil mastermind. It seems weird calling the story’s hero that, but he’s certainly my favorite chess master type character. Has the Church really been keeping secrets from Sun? Would they even be able to?

Suggested Topics:
•Should we expect a cameo from Neo this volume?
•Unicorns are drawn to holy light, apparently. Does that mean that their original “bait” idea was bogus? (Fanfiction writers must be overjoyed)
•Will the Ice Knight remain loyal to Sun? Will Blaze ever get over the shock of being attacked by Sun? After (if) Sun’s memories return will he be forced to “silence” his new friends permanently?
•Does Ice serve a greater role in the plot or is he just going to be tied to the back of a unicorn for the rest of the volume?
•What do you think of the list of “lost” items?
•Sun’s nick-naming skills strike again! Are only Judge and Roland exempt from the nicknaming?
•Favorite scenes from the volume so far and other topics in depth
•And no spoilers please!

Hello! KitsuneWannaBe here with our new project.

We at PR! want to be more engaged with the readers so we’re posting chapter discussions for the latest chapters. For now we’ll just be talking about the main chapters and if the project takes off we’ll add in the side stories. We look forward to your thoughts and comments. Here’s the next discussion starter.

Current Chapter Discussion: LSK V4C5

I don’t know about the rest of you all, but I’m still recovering from the last volume. Our blinded Sun Knight is now an amnesiac. Yu Wo sure loves to torture our hero and her audience. I know she’s rending my heart with this chapter. Sun treasures his holy knight brothers so much (as we saw firsthand in the last volume). How will he react when he realizes what he’s done? Well, I’m sure Sun is devious enough to make his friends forgive him, but I’m not so sure he’ll forgive himself. I hope we get the chance to get to know some of the other holy knights better in the coming chapters. As for discussion-

Proposed topics:

  • Who else recognized Sun’s current adventure party from the previous chapters? (I know I didn’t without rereading)
  • Is “Scarlet” really the “Pink” from before? It’s a popular theory, but are we possibly underestimating Yu Wo? (no spoilers please just thoughts)
  • Does Sun still have the Eternal Tranquility? If not then is our hero in more danger than he realizes?
  • Best scenes from the chapter!
  • Anything else you guys want to talk about IN-DEPTH.
