Personally I think TLW taking place 1 year later makes more sense. Like you said in one of your previous posts, if the arc took place 6 months after GDWO, TLW would have started around September (early Fall). The rainy battle against Monsoon ended in June (Summer), so unless the beginning of TLW through that battle took place within the span of 9 months, TLW starting 6 months after GDWO makes little sense.Spirit Tree wrote: ↑Mon Nov 30, 2020 4:56 amOkay now I see them. I actually did read Volume 1 a long time ago. Just forgot about that part.fantachan wrote: ↑Mon Nov 30, 2020 4:26 amThe Ginga Wikipedia tends to post inaccurate information, but I can guarantee you that it's been about 1 year after the events of GDWO. It was mentioned in the very first chapter in TLW. (I would know, I translated it...)Spirit Tree wrote: ↑Mon Nov 30, 2020 4:06 am
One year? I don’t think I have read that part yet, but one year?
Wait a minute...
*Looks at Orion’s page on Ginga Wiki*
It still says that Orion is about 1 year old at the beginning of TLW and about 1 1/2 years old at the ending. Same with his siblings and friends. It even says that Orion is about 2 years old at the beginning of GDN.
I’m not against your idea or anything, but if TLW took place 1 year over in the Spring after GDWO’s ending, Orion and his siblings and friends would be about 1 1/2 years old at the start and then about 2 1/2 years at the ending. Then Orion and his friends and remaining siblings would be 3 years old at GDN’s beginning.
But in your case of Orion and siblings being at the Akame Mountains with the intention to train for a year, I think they were going to do that for a year, but it got cut short in about 2-3 months after the news about Monsoon and his minions invading Ou Paradise.
Here’s this Wikipedia page to provide an evidence.
It’s under “Other Series.” And it also says that TLW took place 6 months after GDWO’s events, which I still don’t believe.
I’m sticking with my idea, but Yoshi made the timeline issue between GDWO and TLW so tough to analyze that I almost don’t know what to believe.
EDIT: Weird... It also says in the first volume that it's been half a year since the siblings have seen Yamabiko. Don't know if that counts towards the timeline or anything...
Narration says that Orion and siblings traveled to Akame Mountains to train for 1 year. Maybe they did intend to train for 1 year but got cut a few months short? And I just looked at Sirius’s quote on not seeing Yamabiko for half a year after seeing your edit.
Yeah, I don’t know. Like I said, the timeline between GDWO and TLW is tough to analyze because of that issue. I would like my original idea to be true, but like I said, it’s only my perspective. It’s up to you and others on what you choose.
Though it is possible that the siblings' 1 year training was cut short by Akame's arrival... and it's also possible that they've seen Yamabiko at least some point within that year...
...I dunno. Like I posted in the Meme thread:
