Happy 10th Anniversary, Ar tonelico!

I think everyone who's got a Twitter has already seen this in full, but anyway...

Happy 10th Anniversary to our beloved series!

It's been already a decade since the game that first introduced us to this universe, Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia (or The Girl Who Continues Singing at the End of the World) was released in Japan, and so far we've also gotten two sequels, two games initiating a new series within its same universe, multiple drama CDs, books and music albums expanding on its stories and lore, and even the novels that aside of serving as an addendum to the main stories, two of them conclude the entire trilogy's story (and the OVA, which some of us would rather forget about).

So here I only have to say... Thanks to everyone who has worked on these games. From Tsuchiya and Kawachi, to Shikata, Shimotsuki, Mitose, Ishibashi, Inagaki (RIP), Hiyama and so many other talented people, thanks for these unforgettable years and feelings the series has brought us. Even if the Ar Portal has now gone offline permanently and the series has been completely superseded by Surge Concerto, we will never forget about it, and we'll always keep it in our hearts and memories.

Likewise, may we, the ARM members always continue keeping its legacy alive!

Happy 10th Anniversary, Ar tonelico :-3 You have given me so much and really inspired me during some stressful times in my life. I do owe several things to this series and one very important one. So, thank you to everyone who worked on the games no matter in what capacity. You brought great joy into my life and still do anytime I replay these games. I look forward to any future plans. I'm so glad to have a community like this that is still devoted to the series. Let's keep going~

Ah, I didn't know this was coming up so fast :^^;: I knew it was this year, but not this early. Anyway, Happy 10th Anniversary, Ar tonelico~ :D

I can't believe the series is ten years old already. Where the heck did all that time go? Maybe there'll be a 20th? There should at least be one more year, depending on when the rumored next game comes out.

Thank you to the team who continues to keep the series alive and kicking. I owe a lot to it.

Actually, this gets me to thinking… it's about damn time I stop putting off pulling together my last fic.

Happy Anniversary to the series I love so much. I'm glad it's continued on, was worried it would end with the third one. Crossing my fingers for more in the series, though so long as fans keep up with making more music I'll be alright I suppose.

It's been ten years already? This series, and the fanship, still have a special place in my heart :-)

I first saw AT some time after it hit the EU region, and that release date was on May 2007, 2017. So here's to another special 10th anniversary for the series :-)

It's also a bit fun to think of the characters and their settings, 10 years later on, in game world time (relative to the times we see in the games). So, like most of the characters would be in their mid 20s now?

I guess everyone has been living happily on Ar Ciel for a while now? I wonder what they'd be up to these days?

Anyhow, don't want to go too off-topic :-)

This series are like the old FF, timeless, I'm proof of that, i played AT1 and 2 for the first time this year and i can say without a doubt that the AT series are top 3 on my book, especially AT1, i loved 2 but find Lyner much more interesting than Croix, and AT1 has my fav waifu of all time.

It's one of two game series where I own the entire series. If that makes sense.

Long live Ar Tonelico

I noticed this a bit late (shame on me for being a diehard fan) but Happy Anniversary EXA_PICO!!! Now if only we knew what Tsuchiya and his team has been up to in recent years since Ar Nosurge. I'm really dying for a new EXA_PICO title.

I'm pretty sure he was working on Blue Reflection after KT put him on that project, right?

Nope, Tsuchiya is currently directing the mobile game/anime mash-up called Augmented Reality Girls Trinary. Mel Kishida is the one working on Blue Reflection.

So that's what they've been up to. Gotta give those a try (Blue Reflection though is looking like a great Madoka Magic game). I really hope the team gets put back together after those projects and we get another EXA_PICO title. I need more song magic in my life.

Oh wow. I didn't realize that it would take me this long to realize the possible connection between the terms Reyvateil and Lævateinn, thanks to a fan-mistranslation in another fanbase. Given all the other Norse references, this should have been hella obvious years ago. :P

Actually, I also floated up the theory that Reyvateil was derived from Lævateinn a couple of years ago from seeing how similar the katakana was between them both and what Achiwa had said about initially wanting to make a lot of references to Norse mythology.
