Kaibutsu Oujo ch 53 script

Well, volume 12 raws have finally appeared, so FTH doesn't have to buy their own copy. (Damn, I was hoping for a short break)

Anyways, this chapter is pretty relevant to the announcement of Bioshock Infinite. The concept of a flying city attacking the surface world comes from Laputa, in Gullivers' Travels (not Studio Ghibli's Castle in the Sky). The original story was a criticism of Britain's treatment of Ireland, so Irrational Games probably have something to say by changing Laputa into Columbia, an fascist version of the regular American town.

While Yasunori cheaps us out by making the typhoon into a typhoon monster instead of a flying Nazi town, in the end this chapter does explain why the mansion is always covered by poor lighting.
