This is the Four-hundredth-ninety-eighth week of using the "Perfect Anime Girl Sheet". Notice: This Blog may contain Unmarked Spoilers.
Welcome back everyone. We're still here at the arena, waiting for Ririchiyo's next battle.
Hey, it's not up to me who you battle. You just got a little lucky, especially with Tomoyo not feeling as strong as she normally is.
I'm sure that they're working hard on getting all the functionality back. But until then at least I can still write my blogs as well as I can.
What do you mean?
I know. I'm horrible at writing and I'm not able to accurately put what's in my head into words. I have a vivid imagination, but sadly it's wasted... *sniff*
Good to hear that you believe in me, much like I believe in your fighting ability!
There's no time for that, Ririchiyo. It seems like the first round matches have been decided. You have to go to the battle arena.
- Ririchiyo sighs.*
Not this close, at least. This way I'll be able to directly intervene if something goes wrong.
You're not fooling me like that, but nice effort.
- The two walk from the backroom and head towards the arena. The crowd cheer as they emerge.*
That they are. Must be because we're close to the end of the tournament. I'm surprised that we haven't seen most of the girls here.
N-no! I didn't mean like that! We just haven't seen a lot of our competitors.
What, is Ririchiyo's foe running late again?
- Koto then points to the girl, who seems to be wearing a white one-piece uniform with gloves and thighhighs. More questionably she's also wearing a gas mask, hiding her identity. She also has a somewhat-identifiable set of bangs and ponytail.*
I agree. What do you think that she's up to?
That's quite the mystery we have. So Koto, why are we waiting?
But she's right over there.
- Ririchiyo enters the arena. The crowd cheers loudly, as they are finally able to start the match.*
But you do grow horns.
Some clean freak?
???: STOP! You've got it all wrong! I'm n-not trying to poison people!
Then why do you have that mask?
???: See my previous statement!
Maybe if she takes off her gas mask we'll understand.
???: Fine then...
- The girl removes her mask, allowing Topaz and the others to see who it is. She even swings her ponytail around to shake her face off.*
It's just that, well, there are certain issues with you.
- Lucia draws her blade and points it at Topaz.*
Well, how about you just listen to my blog and I'll explain it.
I am! But that's not why!
- Lucia still cowers, covering herself with her arms.*
Plus I'm pretty sure that people have used weapons in the past.
I can't promise these things, but I'll try to be as fair as possible.
Let's just say that the people who made your measurements are just as tasteless as you seem to be.
Oh, you two can still fight while I'm talking. Seems like that's what my fans want as well.
It's only going to get worse from here, I imagine...
Nothing! Anyway, enough stalling as we'll likely die from the poison! Wait, it's not that type of battle. Regardless, I'm here to say that...
- Lucia charges at Riri.*
- Fortunately Riri transforms and blocks the blade with her scythe. The youkai has a smug smile.*
- The two continue to clash their weaponry.*
Well, it looks like Riri and Lucia are locking blades so it's a perfect time to begin the blog!
Lucia's best area is likely her hair. Befitting a nice honor blade/TDB like her she has a long ponytail, reaching her hips or so. It's also fairly narrow, allowing the potential for buttshots even if I don't think that she had any. I like it, and to give a bit of additional cuteness Lucia also wears a ribbon to hold it in place. Her sides are also nice and long, going about to her shoulders or so and frames her face well. It seems like Lucia also has a long middle bang, but not by much as her bangs are quite full. On the top of her head are two air intakes, the triangle-looking designs that Key uses fairly often. And then there's the nice color, as Lucia's hair is a nice dark color which I really like. It's a blue or purple color, with the anime definitely being more purple and the VN straddling between purple and blue. Still, that's all colors I like and I really like Lucia's hair as it suits her well. Really, the only thing I could improve on would be making her bangs a hime cut or having her put her hair down more often. Grade: A
Lucia has pretty good eyes. They are a little rounded and tarame which doesn't suit her too well, but I do like her more serious faces more. She also has some nice upper corners to her eyes, even if her hair does usually hide it. She also has very deep blue eyes, which fits well with her character and meshes well enough with her hair color. However, Rewrite has a lot of blue-eyed characters, with 2.5-3.5 characters also having blue eyes (Both Lucia and Chihaya have blue eyes, while Shizuru's exposed eye is also blue. Kagari is a bit more questionable, with either blue or purple eyes). Still, that's far too many girls sharing the approximate eye color so I have to punish her a little. Grade: B-
There's nothing too special or too terrible about Lucia's face. She has a simple structure, like a lot of Key characters (though I imagine that 8bit aren't exactly the best for art quality either). Still, I like her small features including her dot-sized nose. She has quite a few cute blushing expressions, and her cheeks are nice and rounded. Overall Lucia does pretty well though not anything too outstanding. Grade: B
- Ririchiyo, even in her demon form, is getting pushed back by Lucia.*
- Still, Riri continues to block the attacks and even swipes a few times at her opponent. The two also make great acrobatics in the air, using melee attacks mixed with the weapon blows.*
Wow, look at Ririchiyo go! I'm sure that everyone is enjoying this battle!
- Meanwhile, backstage a familiar if shadowy figure is once again lighting her lamp.*
???: We can't be having Ririchiyo lose quite yet. I need to take her energy myself, not only because her demonic energy is strong but that would mean that Topaz would be without an assistant to come to his rescue... Ufufu, I suppose that it's time to sabotage yet another battle...
- She holds the lamp towards the window, blowing the pink gas towards Lucia with a fan.*
???: MWAHAHA! Now after this battle ends I'll be able to face Ririchiyo myself. Specs will be so proud of me, even if the actions I'm taking are quite Shameless! But Topaz, you will rue the day you first laid eyes on me, Rin-COUGH COUGH!
- The pink smoke suddenly blows into her face, interrupting the girl from saying her full name. She fans it away, though her identity is still hidden.*
???: Now where was I? Evil plot summary, hints at my identity, and even saying my full name. I said that last one, right? No matter, it's time for the evil laughter-MWA HA HA WAH HA!
- We leave the scene, returning to Topaz just in time for him to continue his blog.*
Lucia... has a lot of issues in this area. She's 167 cm and 52 kg, which isn't too bad as she's the tallest female main character (only tying with Touka, the narrow-eyed adult woman, for the tallest female character). It's a shame that the male lead is 176 cm as I always though Lucia was taller. She's an honor blade, she should be really tall! Anyway, I shouldn't be too angry at her height as there's far worse measurements coming up. Lucia's three sizes are 93-56-86, meaning that she breaks my limit at a size difference of 7 cm and is poorly top heavy as a result. There are a few good things about her, I suppose. Her thighs and legs, when shown, look pretty good and while she rarely shows it in the silly introduction scenes for the second season she does show her ass in a bikini somewhat well. I'm not sure if she shows her ass more often, but it wouldn't surprise me if she doesn't which is unfortunate. Lucia is also very strong and fast, with superhuman skills with her sword. Then again, she is a literal superhuman, which I'll talk about later. She does have the ability to cause vibrations, causing her sword to deal more damage. That said, that ability pales in comparison to her main ability. Lucia's body naturally emits a powerful poison that basically destroys anything she touches. This doesn't include those that are resistant or heal themselves, but she has very few friends as a result. This is probably what hurts her the most, as Lucia would probably poison me on contact (even on accident). Though her poor measurements are also an issue themselves, but that also means that she has a lot of trouble in the next area as well... Grade: D+
Lucia is a very mamocentric character. Her chest size of 93 cm is the biggest not only in Rewrite but within any Key production. She is also shown off quite a bit, with a revealing maid outfit and a small bikini just an example of outfits she gets forced into. And let's not talk about the most horrible “happy” ending in Key history either, the less we mention it the less I'll have to write such vomit-inducing words. Grade: C
Lucia usually wears the standard school uniform that most of the female protagonists wear (Chihaya goes to a different school and Kagari has other... circumstances). It consists of a white frilly dress with puffy shoulders, red lines around the wrists and hem, and a red ribbon around her neck. It's fortunate for Lucia that the neck is high and the sleeves are long, to keep her poison from leaking out. She also wears gloves for that reason, which makes others think that she's a clean freak. Lucia also wears black frilled thigh-highs, which are quite nice (even if pantyhose would probably cover her skin more, but Shizuru has that fetish covered). Some other outfits include a moe shirt, a busty maid cosplay as mentioned before with white thighhighs, a black small bikini, a black dress with white ribbon and striped jacket, and her battle outfit. Her battle outfit is suit-like, looking like a sleeveless shirt and vest with long black gloves that go up to her forearms, a gothloli-like black skirt with white frilly inside, and a blue necktie. I really like this outfit. In addition she seems to wear a navel-exposing idol outfit on a CD cover as well as a very revealing Halloween dress in official art (and by “revealing” you can assume from the previous area exactly what part of her body is “revealed”. Though she does also have black nail polish on and looks naughty which helps a little). Overall Lucia's outfits, although mamocentric, are pretty nice-no, it's mainly the fact that she battles in basically a suit with necktie that I really enjoy xD. Grade: B
- Lucia and Ririchiyo continue to fight, clashing their blades together. However, the former is somehow getting slower in her attacks, and not avoiding Riri's attacks as well. This is seen even in the “loser's” area.*
???: It's not Ririchiyo. And she's not a demon either.
- A third fighter goes up to the pair of onlookers.*
- The three nod at that statement and the scene returns to Topaz just as he continues his blog.*
Lucia has a personality that suits me mostly well. She is a tsundere, but that's backed up by a class rep personality which helps alleviate some of the issues. She's also a TDB and somewhat of an honor blade (if a particularly loud and tsundere one) due to wielding a katana. Lucia can be pretty forgiving if apologized to (which is good considering she is quick to anger), and she's a good friend and pseudo older sister to Shizuru. There's some jokes about her, such as Lucia being a clean freak or her enjoyment of spicy foods, that take a dark turn once you consider her background. As a child she was experimented on, with her being the only survivor. It implanted a certain ability in her, and she's able to emit a poisonous gas from her skin. She eventually kills a lot of people with it, at least in the VN, and needs a lot of support when it comes to her route as she thinks that Koutarou (the male lead) only pities her due to her ability. She's also “Haruka Asahi”, which was her name before the group known as Guardian got a hold of her. When Koutarou decides to investigate that name Lucia keeps telling him to stop because she doesn't want him to find out her secret. Her poison is so powerful that technology seems to fall apart for her, and it gives her a lot of trauma due to what she's done in the past. Overall I do like her class rep personality (even if it's a little too tsuntsun for my liking) and her backstory is tragic and nice even if I'm poor at telling details and such. Oh, and in the second season there's only one Lucia. The other is Akari, who is Lucia's younger clone from the VN (I only know that through research as the anime doesn't touch on it). Also Lucia (as well as Akari) is voiced by Risa Asaki who does a good job with her voice. Sadly Lucia is about her only anime role (other than some side characters) and I don't know too much about her VN-only roles. Still, I do like Lucia quite a bit and she was my favorite in the series. Grade: A-
Lucia starts out being really bad here. She's the average class rep-type, scolding the male lead when he's being too perverse or troublesome (though being fair Kotarou might deserve most of the scolding she gives him). That said, it's mainly a result of her being unable to get close to anyone due to the poison. She does have a route with romance in it, including going on a couple of dream dates and even running away together with Kotarou. And while she likely dislikes perversion she doesn't mind doing it in private. Some things Lucia has done include wearing costumes (though she was embarrassed), and washing the lead while wearing a bikini (though that may be an alternate continuity). She looks like the type that could do well, but certain traumas keep her from connecting as well as she would like. Grade: C+
Lucia's actual age is unknown. She is a high schooler, and while I am unsure her exact grade she is in the same grade as Kotarou. Lucia's birthday is also December 23rd, while Kotarou's is May 2nd (though I am not sure if that means he's older or not. I'm bad with judging age, by any means). As a result, she gets the basic high school grade. Grade: B
- Total Grades: 66
- Average score: 7.3
- Final Grade: B-
And that's the blog for this week!
- Crowd cheers.*
- Lucia takes her gloves off and gets in a fighting pose.*
That means that you'd better attack at a long range!
- Lucia tries to grab Riri, reaching out her hand. She's able to dodge the blogged girl's actions though, moving with great agility.*
It's the pink gas! Why can't anyone else see it?
- Riri holds her scythe horizontally, pushing against Lucia's body. She lifts the class rep upward and flings her out of the battle arena. Riri also poses in a cool fashion, spinning her scythe as well. Lucia hits the ground hard, knocking her unconscious.*
So you tried to fail and succeeded-wait...
- Two assistants come to put Lucia on a stretcher and carry her off. A loli in an eyepatch comes up to her unconscious body.*
- Shizuru follows the assistants as they carry Lucia away. Ririchiyo also transforms to her normal form as well.*
Well, at least we have an idea as to one girl we'll meet next time.
Besides, it's not like you have an HP rating like I do.
- A hooded shadowy woman arrives.*
Rin?: Oh ho ho. It seems as though our destined battle is finally here.
Rin?: Indeed. Though I was hoping to fight Topaz more directly, but this will do.
Rin?: So you've figured out that part of my plan, but do you know what's coming next?
You're going to use that power to beat up Riri.
Rin?: Certainly not, because Topaz is a terrible writer! He masks his inexperience and laziness with shameless actions and bad jokes!
Hey, my jokes make me laugh!
So what do you have against me then?
Rin?: You shall soon see...I may not have been able to teach your shameless friend a lesson, but next week I shall be the one to defeat you!
|*High in a tower, far away, two girls continue their conversation.*|
|Woman: Are you SURE that we're not able to interfere? I'm certain that he will be quite... appreciative of the girl we'll send her.|
|Girl: He certainly will, but these types of things require proper timing. If we send her too soon he'll become complacent and likely get distracted. No, we shall send her when the time is right...|
|*The two continue to watch the battles and blogs unfold.*|
