Looking back on TM (opinion)

I remember when back then you didn’t have to name the Heroic Spirit in discussion; specifying whether it was Caster or Zero Caster was more than enough. It’s been a long time already.

It’s amazing to see how much TM has grown after 2011. I’d dare to say it was around this year that TM went really  mainstream, be it for good or bad.

2011 had the F/Z anime which attracted a handful of people that weren’t into VNs. We had anime, but they weren’t particularly that popular outside of DEEN’s F/sn. A year before the UBW movie had been released. KnK was a success, but it was relegated to a niche fanbase. Everyone was happy about F/Z getting an adaptation,  imo.

He was very open-hearted and a fervent enthusiast of vampires.

Still, there was no problem because there was plenty of time to kill.

The woman stood up and opened the curtains.

Law of Contradiction: Bazett4

I think it’s time to proofread up previous entries after this. That’s gonna take a while though.

As soon as Bazett returned to the hotel, she had already completed her preparations for the encounter.

Her whole body tensed and her senses sharpened. Footsteps could be heard.

Although it wasn’t clear as to how many people were making those sounds, they all gave off a strong bloodlust. Putting on her gloves, she carved a rune.

Footsteps, extremely small yet well coordinated, as though they belonged to those of an army. Then, they stopped altogether in front of her room.

Bazett felt a strange sense of uneasiness. Although the footsteps and breath were craftily hidden, the bloodlust was strong enough to leak. This indicated that this was the work of a novice.
