Re: [Yuricon] MADLAX 13

especially since 13 added a lot of fuel to the speculation fire.
Finally things are starting to kick into gear.
I really, really liked that tender scene between Vanessa and Madlax as
they were discussing Madlax's father. (Who, incidentally, I think is
probably not in very healthy state of being, based on the size of the
hole in those dog tags and where dog tags usually lie on a person, and
the shot of the still hand in Madlax's flashback. ;)
This is probably the goggles talking, but it seems as if they're really
pushing the boundaries between subtext and maintext here. I suppose
it's entirely possible to show that kind of intimacy in a platonic
relationship between two unrelated people, but I think if one (or both,
now that I think about it) of them were male the presumption would be
that there was a romantic relationship between them.
> I definitely liked the way that all the main characters lack memoriesAll of which obviously makes Madlax, Don, and Margaret players in that
incident 12 years ago, the question now is how, I think. And Vanessa,
Eleanor, Nahal, Friday Monday, and Hot Priestess were movers or
observers and they've all been "reset" as it were and are all rushing
headlong into repeating history, in their search for the truth.
Question here is, who did the reset and why, especially since we know
those kind of resets never last.

she recovers quickly. Margaret seems to be empathic, she tends to
"feel" things a lot like when Don was going to ask her for the book.
This might be what makes her immune or at least much less susceptible.
Don't know how yet, but it sounds good. ;)

translation just says he doesn't have any memories either, so I took it
as referring to all of his childhood memories, which include his
father, since that would be keeping in context of the conversation. I
don't know if the actual Japanese makes it clearer, without taking the
time to listen and attempt to translate it myself, but the Ayu team is
made up from the A-S/Lillicious team so I'm presuming their accuracy is

licensed, especially if I like it, out of a sense of obligation. I
think the only exception to this is UFO Princess Valkyrie, I'm not
buying that, and regret having watched the whole thing.
I certainly wouldn't mind having them actually tie up all the loose
ends for once. ;)

the name is "Ric ... on". Hands up who else thinks that'll resolve as
something like "Richard Burton" - with the obvious implication about
Madlax and Margaret's relationship.

Just for the record. Lililicious has nothing to do with Ayu. It is
true that some of the A-source people joined Ayu but they don't have
any translators. And since lililicious provided the translators for
Marimite... I don't know about Ayu's accuracy.
Better check if you are able to translate yourself ;)
