GregZerO : (20 January 2019 - 02:39 AM) I was wondering,is there any link from the instrumental version of the FF film of the ophelia song?The one that plays multiple times ,without the singing though
midwinter : (20 January 2019 - 12:45 PM) Not that I'm aware of
midwinter : (20 January 2019 - 12:45 PM) When does it play without the singing? I don't think I remember that
GregZerO : (20 January 2019 - 09:41 PM) Hmmm you know when ...... and mich agree to sleep with the rope and invistgate?And then earthquacke?A version of ophilia plays during those events
GregZerO : (20 January 2019 - 09:42 PM) and also the one at the "old lake spot" when the reveal happens,a cute version of ophelia song
GregZerO : (20 January 2019 - 09:44 PM) i was looking for both of them but i couldn't find them anywhere  :unsure:
midwinter : (21 January 2019 - 05:07 AM) :thinking:
midwinter : (21 January 2019 - 05:08 AM) I thought it was just the regular theme song when Michi sleeps with the rope, but I'll check
midwinter : (21 January 2019 - 05:09 AM) And during the earthquake wasn't it the other way round, Mary singing ophelia's song without accompaniment?
midwinter : (21 January 2019 - 05:14 AM) There's a file here with the theme that plays in the trailer and a lot of the scenes, is that the one you mean? http://bcl.rpen.us/c...ed-title-theme/

Should it have been voluntary?

Something I've always found interesting is the fact that the Kuze Family doesn't force people into the role of shrine maiden, but rather allows people who are candidates to offer for the position.  While this is a very compassionate thing to do was it really the best choice of action on their part?  I don't support forcing someone to basically give up their life whatever the reason, but in regards to what they were trying to keep from happening was it really smart to make this voluntary?

 

In a more out of universe example do you think the story benefited from this detail?  Or do you feel it damages the ability to sympathize with Reika's inability to let go of her feelings for Kaname?

I don't think it was compassionate as much as it was practical; accepting the tattoos is an extremely selfless thing to do, and they needed someone empathetic in order to feel and bare the pain of others.   Having the role be voluntary narrows down the potential candidates quite a bit.
