Anonymous asked: What do you think of a few people’s opinions that you look a lot like Miles Edgeworth from the Ace Attorney series? You both have younger siblings, however you and Clover are a lot nicer than them.

askkanjiandnaoto asked: Do people ever compare you to/mistake you for Miles Edgeworth?

I have read over the documents concerning the family of genius prosecutors, especially since people have said I resemble Miles Edgeworth many times. I would say that I am a lot calmer and more collected than he, and I agree that my relationship with my younger sibling is more affectionate. Our experiences eschewed solidarity rather than competitiveness.

On the other hand, I could definitely imagine Clover wielding a whip to get her way. Let us not give her any ideas.

It seems as if Miles Edgeworth struggles to attain elegance and perfection, while I naturally exude it without effort. In this way, we cannot be compared.

Anonymous asked: Why are you so handsome and smart and tall and kind and gentle and perfect???? It’s unfair that you’ve got all the great traits of human beings right??

You left out ‘talented’ - I am both a skilled fighter and musician - but it does seem a bit unfair, doesn’t it, Anonymous?
Yet this is the burden I must bear for the rest of my days, knowing that my genius, wit, charm and extraordinary mind power are nigh overwhelming to others. Thank goodness I am also humble about it, or I’d be insufferable.

I enjoy the company of men and am currently single. I have dated in the past, yet for all my intelligence and charm, I am, by all reports, a very difficult person to have as a boyfriend.

As for the potential of the men in the Nonary Game, Junpei is clearly unavailable and I would not invite disaster by luring him to stray. I do enjoy his enthusiasm and honesty quite a lot, but that is as far as I am willing to take the matter. Santa is vulgar, which either means he is delightfully depraved in bed or that he is overcompensating due to lack of confidence. Seven would likely be the most interesting to converse with, but might not be able to keep up with me in other areas.

Out of all three, I think my best chance at what I hope for would be Santa, if only to see if I could shut his ludicrously foul mouth with the properly applied skill. And if it turns out I dislike his personality, well, perhaps I can find out if he is into gags.

I was teasing Junpei about the bed, of course - we did not have near enough the time to make proper use of it. I was tiring of how he molested the furniture when clearly it was time to move on. I thought it might be best to motivate him into the next room. Fortunately, I accomplished my goal of making him run to the next room to avoid me, thus moving on.

Anonymous asked: If relative marriage is accepted between worlds,would you marry clover?

I am usually all for supporting other peoples’ fetishes, but I draw the line when they involve me or my sister. I do not know why you are entertaining such fantasies or what might lead you to believe it was only the boundaries of society keeping me from marrying Clover, but you are mistaken. Almost laughably so.
I would never hurt or betray my sister, and incest is an abuse and betrayal of the worst kind.  I am her brother, I am here to advise and protect her. I could think of nothing happier than to always be able to advise and protect her. To suggest anything different is not only bizarre and inappropriate, but revolting.

Anonymous asked: Can i join the incineration party?


In order to find something offensive, one must believe it to have some kind of meaning or effect. If something appears to be said merely to provoke a reaction, I am not offended because it is beneath my notice. A relevant ask is posted.
Do not try to be cute about about incinerating people. Surely you must have something better to do.
Questions regarding my blindness are often guilty of infantilizing me. Unfortunately, this is something I have encountered daily since my accident. If you have a question about if/how I am able to do something, the answer is usually yes, I can do it, and better than you.
I do find ignorance amusing to a point, and I am used to the many misconceptions about my blindness. I held a few of my own when I was a child. However, the sexism in nearly every question I’ve been asked about Clover quickly passes from humor to offensive.
The Nonary Games were some of the worst days of our lives. The idea that she should meet someone’s expectations for her attitude and clothing even on the best day of her life offends me.

Anonymous asked: What does being blind feel like? Then and Now. Then:Is when you first got blindness And,Now:is basically the present time.

I am asked this fairly frequently, and as surprising as it might be, I do not know what to say. I am blind. It does not ‘feel’ like anything, any more than one feels something when they breathe.
So, if you are asking what I feel like every moment of every day, I would have to say: being blind feels exceptional, because I am exceptional. But that has nothing to do with being blind, I am not exceptional because or in spite of being blind, I am merely exceptional and blind.
I felt upset when I first became blind because it was a very big change, and I was traumatized from being in an accident. I adapted quickly, however.

Anonymous asked: A prince, huh? Well you certainly fit the description. You need a princess though, don't you? I'd be willing to take the role.

Don’t be ridiculous. My sister is the only princess I require.

Though I’m not against a little role-playing, I think I would prefer a wandering knight or minstrel, or perhaps a stable boy. Junpei and Santa seem like the sort who’d be suited to mucking out stalls, don’t they?

Anonymous asked: (A follow up to the Axe Ending question, from a different anon. [Also, I apoligize if this appears in your ask as a duplicate; my internet cut off when I tried to send it before and I wasn't sure if you would receive it.]) /Defending/ herself? Is /that/ what she told you? (By the way, her skirts /are/ too short. That's alright, though; her legs are absolutely /sinful/.)

If she judged the other people in the game to be a threat for any reason - there was no shortage of suspicious types in the game, remember - then I trust her decision. She is my sister, and I am understandably fond of her. More than that, I believe in her completely.

That being said, killing the others and taking their bracelets was the most efficient way to win the game. I applaud her resourcefulness, if I cannot agree with her methods.

As as side note, I would categorize the length of my sister’s skirts decidedly under the subject heading of ‘not my damned business’. So long as she is not breaking decency laws, nor violating a dress code at her place of work or study, neither is it yours.

Whether or not you enjoy ogling Clover’s legs is immaterial to whether or not is alright she dress in the manner she finds comfortable. It is alright because she is a grown woman who has the right to dress however she pleases.

Anonymous asked: Does it require a lot of concentration to hear things from afar? Particularly in one moment, Junpei was speaking with you and you paused in mid conversation because apparently you heard the other team pass through Door 4.

I am perhaps more attentive to the sounds and vibrations around me than a sighted person. Perhaps it would be more difficult for someone less brilliant to be so aware of their surroundings?

I was not attempting to hear them, if that is what you are asking. Rather, I recognized Clover’s voice and movement, and became momentarily distracted.

Anonymous asked: What is your favorite activity?

Photography.

—But in seriousness, I enjoy reading and researching subjects that I find interesting. There is little I find more thrilling than the pursuit of pure knowledge.
