Why Yuri’s New Form is a Comic Book
I saw a couple comments spread out questioning the reason why Yuri’s new form is based on a comic book of all things and how it “seems out of place” for him. Just a short note on it, but the reason why his form is based on a comic book is for a couple reasons.
1) Yuri’s introduction has him be extremely reactionary to the Megid and what justice is. Like he knows he can remove the editor-in-chief from the Yeti Megid, but doesn’t quite understand the idea of “saving her” as an individual. It’s why he’s so obstinate with Touma in his debut episodes. It’s only after Touma saves her from the Megid does he start to understand the idea of saving someone against “saving the world.”
2) Yuri loves books as much as anything, and the idea of a comic book is fascinating to him. The hero in the comic is very much a distilled version of what a modern day superhero is like. Someone who sees the people as its world, just like how Touma tells Yuri. Not only is it new to Yuri, but also very easy for him to digest. The comic book superhero is allowing him to better understand the kind of justice people want to see in the modern age, as opposed to when he was alive one-thousand years ago.
3) It’s fun and cute okay, don’t ruin the fun of his power up being related to the comic book he’s been obsessed with since he joined the Touma and Mei crew. It looks really neat.

Please write something about the Saber ot4 because we’re going in hiatus soon 🥺🥺🥺🥺
Okay. I guess it's time to get sad about some swordboys... (and a swordgirl) (canon to the HSHFTNEP-verse, if you're unfamiliar with it this won't make sense!)
This is turning out way more sappy and heartwarming than I thought. Damn it, I really am sad about this! 😭
"Touma!" Mei pounced on Touma from behind as soon as he walked through the door. She pecked his cheek and then slid to the ground to allow Rintaro and Kento their turn. "How'd the reading go?"
Touma grinned. "Really well, actually. Apparently they think I have potential as a screenwriter?"
Kento smiled and ruffled Touma's hair, the same way Hayato had done with his hair. Maybe it was because he'd been with the Sword of Logos for so long, or because Touma had never seemed to grow up, but aside from the romantic love that had been there since the beginning of their friendship, he felt almost a fatherly responsibility for his boyfriend. "Good on you, Tou-tou."
Rintaro walked out of the kitchen, an éclair in his mouth and Ise wrapped around his leg in toddler form. "Touma, that's amazing! Hey, Ise, Tou-chan just got a big success!"
"Huh?" Ise tilted his head quizzically, then dropped from Rintaro's leg so he could wander over to Touma and jump up into his arms, meaning that Touma had to quickly adjust to the added weight. "Tou-chan did what?"
"I got the go-ahead to write a movie script! And guess what, Ise?" Touma tickled Ise's face, making the kid giggle. "The movie is is going to be about Kento-kun the magic hedgehog!"
Ise, Mei and Rintaro started laughing with delight, and the actual Kento swore under his breath. Somehow, Kento-kun had become Touma's best-selling series of all time, and nobody understood what it was about a magical hedgehog, lion and dragon that so enchanted toddlers.
"I can't wait for you to start!" Mei bounced up and down excitedly, her twin buns coming looser and looser with every jump. "You know I'm editing, right?"
"Yeah, I know. Okay, I've got the ideas floating, so let's put them down on the paper." Touma tapped his head and headed to his desk, handing Ise off to Kento. He then grabbed his fountain pen from the locked closet, having recently learned that Ise, if given access to a liquid-ink pen, would get ink everywhere. The ink splatters all over the couch were evidence to that.
