Shirley

Shirley

Author’s Comment: Can you believe she’s already a 30-year-old mother of two? I couldn’t believe it when I first saw it. Really though, when I first saw this, I thought that the illustrator Maro-san was a god. The swords in her hand are called Ig-Alima and Sul-Sagana. I really love how cool and beautiful this design turned out to be.

Translator’s Comment: What is it with adventuring mums and using two swords?

 

Sophie

Sophie

Author’s comment: Indeed, maybe being an adventurer wouldn’t be so bad if it was for her sake. The eldest of the twins, Sophie! Unlike her mother, her eyes are very cute looking. She’s got the hair I would want on my dream girl, though after she’s grown up a bit ww

 

Tio

Tio

Author’s comment: Indeed, maybe being an adventurer wouldn’t be so bad if it was for her sake. The last illustration is of the youngest twin, Tio! Those sleepy moe eyes are really different from her sister’s! If you lined up the mother and daughters together, you’d get a sense that Sophie and Tio were just two halves of Shirley’s whole, looking at the eye colours.

  1. So, i kinda curious about references of her swords and found that it’s the name of the children of Baba and Ningirsu from Mesopotamian myth ( http://oracc.museum.upenn.edu/amgg/listofdeities/baba/index.html). Th correct name is Igalima, i know that Japan doesn’t have ‘L’ letter and using ‘R’ instead. Alternatively, Igalima and Shul-Sagana is the name of Scimitar used by Zababa, the patron deity of the ancient Sumerian city called Kish (don’t have reference). Apparently, they also appeared in fate series, its two of the weapons in Gilgamesh’s Gate of Babylon.

    Because the author also use fate reference, maybe you want to change the name. Just my suggestion tho, you don’t need to follow it

    1. Honestly, I should have realized that her swords had actual meanings, but I did my googling in Japanese and didn’t really find anything so I stupidly assumed that they were original names. I’ll definitely go ahead and use these from now on, thank you.

      God damn this author is such a Fate nerd. Kind of a match made in heaven since I use Fate imagery on this blog as well, though it was honestly complete coincidence.

      1. I kinda have heard about Sul-Sagana but i don’t remember where i heard it. When i google it, all the result are related to Senki Zeshou Symphogear. And that’s why i kinda remember about that name because i watch that series. And then did some researching and finally come with that fact
