Yomiko fan 1: Yomiko, Yomiko, my favorite homie-ko, (sneeze) she loves books-ko and looks very smart-ko, I like (sneeze) to hug her-ko, cause shes awesome-ko! Yomiko! Yay! (sneeze)
Yomiko fan 2: “Is there, beyond all the causal and incalculable elements of the separate events, something that we may call a metaphysical structure of historic humanity?”
Yomiko: What are these?…Wait.
You’re quoting The Decline of the West by Oswald Spengler.
Fan 2: Yes! “My assertion: that one must subject moral valuations themselves to a critique. That one must curb the impulse of moral feeling with the question ‘Why?'”
Yomiko: Writings from the Late Notebooks by Nietzche.
Fan 2: Good! “This familiar but deceptively seductive Eurocentric view is false for various reasons, not the least of which is that the West and East have been fundamentally and consistently interlinked through globalization every since 500 ce.”
Yomiko: The Eastern Origins of Western Civilization, by John Hobson!
Fan 2: Right! Last one: “She reads a book with all five senses. She smells it, touches it against her skin, sometimes she uses her mouth. The same as interacting with a person. She is a true book lover.”
Fan 2: Look up Hideyuki Kurata.
Integra: These storylines always play fast and loose with the fourth wall, but isn’t this going a bit far?
Pip fan (background): without him becoming a power vamp like Alucard and by then things’d be more focused on their children or more likely Integra and Alucards kids… But they’d all be friends cause they’d all be vamp or half vamp and that’s turbo cool!
Yomiko fan 3: YOOOOOMIIIIIKOOOOOOO!!!! I LOVE YOMIKO!!! ALL THROUGH R.O.D. TV I WAS WAITING FOR HER TO COME AND WHEN SHE APPEARED I NEARLY WENT NUTS!!! SHE IS THE ULTIMATE PAPER USER. CAN I PLEASE BE YOUR HOUSEBOY! I COOK, I CLEAN, I READ A LOT . I WON’T TAKE UP MUCH ROOM EVEN, PLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASE!!!! Ahem… sorry about that, anyhow, I really loved you in the OVA’s and I’m planning on reading your manga a million times in the first day I have it.
Yomiko fan 4: Yomiko is so cool with the way she uses paper as weapons! I can barely do basic origami and she can use her abilities to ake braces and swords and planes! It’s so sad that [CUT FOR SPOILERS], but I know Yomiko will be okay!
