Part two of my theories. The other one was my main ideas, whereas these ones are a bit shorter.
Just going to jump right in. Here is a selection of collected thoughts before Kuro II.
A series of character predictions by the Falcord user Sicengamble. Not a traditional theory post, but not completely unprecedented either, especially as a fun one just before launch. So without further ado, the list:
Rifleman delves into the truths hidden within the series’ short stories and argues there might be a bigger connection between Agnes and Agnes than just visuals. – Hellseye47
The core of this theory concerns the identity and origins of one of the members of Almata. After establishing this character’s true identity I attempt to expand the theory by examining other characters for potential connections.
I’m submitting early to: A) break the drought, and B) spread out the theories in the lead up to Kuro No Kiseki. I’ll probably be wrong but here’s the Latte forecast for the events to come…
In brief, the little sprite-like girl on the Kuro no Kiseki key visual is a form of communication device. Furthermore, I believe the figure is contained inside the old orbment Agnes is concerned with, much like a ‘genie in a bottle’
Zemuria is the ship on the spiritual sea and it’s up to Captain Carnelia and her trusty crew of hardened seamen to keep it from sinking – Hellseye47
For the third post-Hajimari theory, the wind directs us towards the possible worlds of Calvard’s web of lies.
Of the three higher elements, Time and Space are fairly simple enough to understand, if only because they’ve been covered so much in other fiction—time travel, teleportation, making things bigger and smaller, etc etc.
But even in the series itself, we’ve only ever gotten piecemeal explanations on what Mirage is, buzzwords like ‘perception’, ‘cognizance’, ‘fate’, and things like that.
So what does it mean when those concepts are active alongside the traditional foundation elements of Time and Space? That’s what I’ll be musing about in this theory.
