I know you fanboys have been waiting for this one. We somehow got everything completed earlier this week. Now, we didn’t cut corners or anything to make this come out faster. We put in the same number of man hours as we had in previous episodes. People just happen to be more free this week for some reason.

Either way, I was asked to talk about some of the phrases we use in the episode. Are you all familiar with the phrase “steal a march”? I was fairly certain that this was quite common, but others told me otherwise. Anyway, one of our staff, Clephas, gave a very good description of its meaning.

“Usually is referring to a general who realizes an enemy’s advantage before that enemy does and eliminates it before the enemy can use it. Or when two people seek the same thing and one pushes himself to get ahead of the other.”

The second one is Blue Knight Countess. Why Countess? That’s because there’s no feminine form for Earl. There’s no such thing as an Earless or whatever, so the Count version is used for women.

Enjoy the episode.

    I hadn’t heard of “steal a march”, so I appreciate the explanation. I did know about the countess title though. So I guess that balances things out. Anyways… thank you very much for the fast release. You made me day. :)
