Matsuyama is the one writing the column, though, I don't see how the pair of characters in it could be chosen behind his back.Fleur de Lys wrote:To be honest with you : no, surely no. In the case of a "joke" from Ito to Matsuyama, the less Natsume and Piroshi interact, the better it is. Why ? To prevent Matsuyama to find the reference too quickly.
What do you mean?Fleur de Lys wrote:I neither say that. My theory (it's still a theory) only implies a kind of game.
Ok, so that's a 50-50 chance of it being Natsume, that's no enough to make anyone think there was really a reason. Characters like Marlo, Kite, etc., can be ruled out, so what I meant was that there choice wasn't very broad.Fleur de Lys wrote:Let me think... Hum, Mistral !
Go ahead then, I didn't realize you were actually a fan of the book, I thought you were trying to prove a connection. One interesting thing I learned when I checked the kanji for Natsume, however, is that it wouldn't be unusual for her to be a member of Moon Tree (her name can mean "Jujube Tree"), though due to the way her name is written and the time she re-enters the series, I doubt it...Fleur de Lys wrote:I note. As you know so much about .hack, you're probably closer to this truth than me, for sure. But, as it's the kind of connection i like alot, i'll still believe in it. In fact, that Natsume comes or not from Natsume Sôseki has absolutly no importance in the whole of .hack.
