This really just hit me, but Xam’d’s Nakiami is really going to live up to her name and stop the cruel, sacrificial Great Pilgrimage, literally “stopping” many people’s tears. Remember her new name came from a corruption of “Naki yame” lit. “stop crying”.
And Xam’d seriously needs to be longer. Or BONES needs to explain their stories better. There’s a ton of stuff in the world of Xam’d, but hardly anything is properly explained. In that way, it’s similar to Darker than Black. That iceberg analogy someone told me really fits both DtB and Xam’d. At least Xam’d has a much more engaging storyline.
