WHAT DOES THIS SAY?!

Izaya speech bubble: Won’t you stop prying into my business so much?
Title: Let’s decipher Izaya’s expectations from the arrangement of the pieces!!
Subtitle: During the anime, Izaya used a combination of shogi, chess, and Othello pieces, and they reappeared many times and we saw them in many scenes. But what did they mean? From the pieces and their positions, let’s see if we can figure out what Izaya’s thinking.
【Episode 9 – Iirenren (Love and Cherish in English)】
Blue squares: White Othello piece is Namie, shogi と piece is Mikado, black Othello pieces are Namie’s black suited underlings.
Title: Shogi pawn Surrounded by White and Black Othello Pieces
Description: While Mikado was sheltering Harima Mika, Namie and her black suited underlings were surrounding their target, is what we think this means. The centre “pawn piece” represents “Mikado,” the “white Othello piece” represents “Namie”, and the “black Othello pieces” represent Namie’s black suit wearing underlings. At this point, the “pawn” is flipped over to become a “promoted piece.” We can guess this change is meant to include the change from Mikado as an ordinary “pawn” to his place as the founder of the Dollars
【Episode 12 – Umusousei (Ying and Yang in English)】
Red exclamation: Immediately after the “promoted piece” becomes a senior “king piece”!
Blue squares-

First picture: Shogi piece is Mikado
Second picture: White Othello pieces are Dollars, shogi と piece is Mikado, upper shogi piece is Izaya, upper white Othello piece is Namie.

Title: Promoted Pawn Surrounded by White Othello Pieces
Description: The black Othello pieces surrounding the “promoted piece” die, and are replaced by white Othello pieces (the Dollars?). Immediately after that, the “promoted piece” is changed to a senior “king piece,” meant to represent the instant Mikado goes from ordinary pawn to making his appearance as the founder of the Dollars. Also, if we assume that the cornered white Othello piece is Namie, the nearby pieces would be the “shogi bishop” as Izaya and the “Queen” as Celty’s head…we wonder what that means.
【Episode 17 – Uitenpen (Everything Changes in English)】
Blue squares: Shogi piece is Mikado, black Othello pieces are Dollars
Title: Shogi King Piece Surrounded by Black Othello Pieces
Description: The senior “king piece” is Mikado and the “black Othello pieces” are the Dollars. This probably represents the position of Mikado, who is going to investigate the situation using the Dollars. As for the change of the Dollars from white pieces to black pieces, could this be because the team colour is colourless, or could this represent the beginning of the changes in the Dollars…?
【Episode 18 – Shiseiyuumei (Out of Your Control in English)】
Blue squares: Upper left shogi piece is Mikado, chess piece is Celty’s head, upper right shogi piece is Anri, lower middle shogi piece is Masaomi.
Title: Three king pieces facing the Black Queen
Description: Most likely the normal “king” is Anri, and the senior player “kings” are Mikado and Masaomi respectively.  The centre queen is either Celty or Celty’s head. Perhaps this indicates the 3 of them facing off with Celty, or that in the future the relationship between the four of them will be even more complicated?
【Episode 21 – Gorimuchuu (Everything Covered in Fog in English)】
Blue squares: Black bishop is Masaomi, white pawn is Yellow Scarves, white queen is Anri, black Othello pieces are Saika’s children, white king is Izaya, black queen is Celty’s head, white Othello piece is Namie, black knight is Celty, shogi piece is Mikado.
Title: The triangular board returns!
Description: After burning his Japanese chessboard in episode 18, Izaya has changed to a triangular shaped board. Notice that the white Othello piece from episode 9 that we speculated to be Namie is consistently being used. From there, we can guess at the other positions. Her nearby pieces are Izaya (white King) and Celty’s head (Black Queen). Also, if the right lower senior king piece is Mikado, then we can determine that the black knight would be Celty. And assuming that the lower left Black King is Masaomi, and if the surrounding chess pieces would be the Yellow Scarves, then from the state of affairs surrounding Masaomi we can guess that the white queen of “Saika” (and her black Othello piece children)  is Anri. In short, the arrangement is that Izaya and company are watching the three way struggle and ensuing events from their little corner.

Oooh, thank you so much for the spoilers! Well actually I spoil myself first before watching/reading anything, so don’t worry about it! And maaaan, I really need to start watching that again, tbh I downloaded the game too, I started playing it last year though I never finished it since I got too busy XD

image

Oooh, that’s nice! Well, I’m 6 years apart from my nee-chan, then my imouto’s 8 years apart from me.. that’s one hell of a family planning we got there  XD And oh, it’s nice to have a younger sibling, there’s someone you could bully.. *shot* And well, they can be a real pain sometimes, but still, you’d still love them! :3

image

AAAAAAAAAHHH A BROTHER LIKE TOBIO-CHAN GOSH THAT IS FANTASTIC!! I can imagine Kageyama being a tsundere towards his lil sis.. like he’s being mean to her but he’s actually a doting kind of bro and he’ll be overprotective and aaaah so cute! :3 And yes like Hiroomi too, if my bro is Hiroomi I won’t mind even if he has a siscon! Yeah, I’d like to see more of Kakeru as well! Though I guess all that we’ll see is the romance part of the story huh OTL

image

Yeah, I’m kinda curious about that as well, and why the heck did Kakeru find out about Touko wth I want to know more about their powers and not on the cheesy shoujo manga-like romance that they have, geez =_= And oooh, interesting idea you’ve got there about Sacchan!

image

Yeah, I don’t like it either! But I guess there’s no helping it, but still, she should’ve explained herself better to the guy, I mean, they’re still friends, even though he likes her more than a friend.. And ooh, have you seen ep 3 of dmmd? THE HORRIBLE ANIMATION GOSH WHYYY OTL And yeah, we have, it really sucks, true! Nah, I don’t like studying but I like having high grades, I mean, who doesn’t? lmao XD And yup, thanks! \o/ *salutes* Though I’ve gotta admit that I still have things to do, like drawing my manga and well, I did start a scanlation team for Kagehina doujins, take a look at it here!

image

Yeah Urobutcher is really a sadist, but the gore he makes is really awesome so I really don’t mind~ And oh, I downloaded it but I actually never started it yet, I did plan on watching it though! Is it good? And awwww, but Love Stage is actually really good, tbh I have no plans on watching it but when I watched the first episode, I craved for more since it was really cute and hilarious! Hmm yeah, I sort of trieed to catch up on the manga back in the years, but after that I lost my interest when I caught up to the latest chapter.. what is its ending though, is it really true that Yuki ended up with Kaname and not Zero? Well I really did like it when I was in high school, I even remember reading the manga when I was 14, back when the anime was just about to start XD

image

Ah actually I really don’t like Yuki, she’s getting on my nerves =_= And whoaaa, you really are into it, although I do have DVDs of it as well plus I’ve downloaded all the manga lmao XD

image

Yeah, Zero’s also the reason why I picked up Vampire Knight in the first place! And he really deserved better, man just ignore Yuki and you can always go to me other girls, Zero!! *cries*

image

Hmmmm well they’re friendly, though there are times when they’re provoked that they get really really scary. And whoa, actually we never had a fish, what’s it like to have a fish as a pet? And lmao the fish ate another fish? That’s one carnivorous fish you have there, I hope that isn’t a piranha.. *shot*

image

Ah yes Rinka’s dad’s power is really awesome, albeit really troublesome XD Tbh I liked this ep better than the first one; I know that the first one was like an introductory ep but still it’s confusing, they should have put this ep as the first one, don’t you think? And oh, I still haven’t seen it since I’m still waiting for my sisters since we watch most of the new anime this season together.. but wait, what happened to kougami?

image

True! Nozaki is more like a comedy than romance and I prefer it that way, that series is really hilarious gosh I really want more! And yeah, the new Barakamon! I really loved that ep, Naru’s face omg she looks like Ryo-san from Kochikame, and I love that part with the fujoshi, goooosh! I think she’s actually my favorite character, and she’s a mangaka and a fujoshi so that’s a plus! And yes yes i agree, and gosh Junon Boy-sensei and Naru are so cuuuuteeee :3

image

Yes, I wonder about that too.. and oh, who’s your favorite character in Zankyou no Terror? Mine is Nine, actually it really helps that he’s voiced by Ishikawa Kaito, my Kageyama bias is showing.. *shot* And oh Twelve kinda reminds me of Free’s Nagisa tbh XD And yeah I like that too, but as for Tokyo Ghoul I haven’t read the manga yet but I heard that they’re going at a very fast pace for the anime? I mean, that isn’t a good thing at all, oh man why does Pierrot fuck up everything OTL And I like the new Sailor Moon too, they’re being more straightforward than the original series, tbh iirc it took a lot more episodes before Ami was introduced in the original series, so I’m glad that they’re taking the fast route. The only thing that I find odd though is that WHY IS IT THAT MAMORU ALWAYS WEARS TUXEDOS IN THE STREETS IN BROAD DAYLIGHT I MEAN HELLO IN THE ORIGINAL ANIME AND MANGA HE WEARS NORMAL CLOTHES WTF LMAO XD And I like the new eps! \o/

image

Ah, that’s great then! And oh, who’s your bet in Nisekoi? Well this is a harem series so I bet Raku will end up with no one, but I want him to end up with Chitoge rather than Onodera? Though tbh I like all the girls in Raku’s harem, there’s no one there who really annoyed me maybe except Marika, I dunno I just don’t like her..? And yeah Raku’s still being in denial, he should just accept that he’s developing feelings for Chitoge as well *shot* And yeah the OP and ED changes a lot, as expected of Shaft though, so I’m not surprised. I don’t like how they changed the scenery though, the school buildings don’t look like buildings anymore and as a manga reader I am really weirded out by this but I guess I got used to it later on..

And yesss Baccano I really love that series! Same with Durarara and well yeah Firo is my favorite character as well, plus add the fact that he’s voiced by Bossun (Sket Dance), Yoshino Hiroyuki and that makes it even better :3 And oh have you watched SKET Dance btw?

image

And don’t worry about it anon-chan, it’s fun talking to you and I reply late too so sorry about that! And keep on the messages coming, I’ll be waiting! :)
