“I-LYA”, while Elijah is “i-LIE-ja”.
Or maybe “EEL-yah” like Kungoru said, I don’t know which one (depending on the author) but I always pronounced “I-LYA” since it’s sounds… more feminine because the female Ilya I saw being called “I-ri-ya”

Forgot to mention that my friend was MALE so there’s that. :sweat_smile: But really you can pronouce it as you like seeing it as it is a fantasy novel without any audo inclusion so it doesnt really matter.

Yup, same for my case. That’s why it didn’t click for me with Japanese pronunciation イリヤ (Ee-ree-ya/Ee-lee-ya).

Oh no, the pronunciation “i-LYA” is not because of the Japanese pronunciation, I know it from here.

If Japanese people want to pronounce “EEL-yah”, I think they would say “i-ru-ya” or “i-ya”

Edit: just found another

I mentioned japanese just in reference to Fate discussion above. And yeah, in Japanese Ilya seems to be pronounced as イリヤー if we are to believe japanese side of wikipedia (as your second screenshot seems to be from english side of wiki, if i’m not mistaken).

And as I said before, this is much more… erm, “singsong”-like than pronunciation I usually hear from, for example, russian-speaking people.

I think I had read it too much just to see Ilya’s reaction because I’m desperate for anything involving her and you really helped me by that

Awww, you’re welcome. Ilya really is a doll and I am soooo hoping we can get a poly option for her and Eli

I have a horrible feeling this game won’t be finished because Parivir hasn’t posted on here, tumble or Patreon since like February and that never means well for anything. :anguished:

Yeah, the first half of the year is always hell for long projects, especially for students. Several of my favs are on hiatus atm

I sure do hope Parivir goes forward with it, this is an outstanding WIP.

As an example of how outstanding it is, I sincerely cannot decide between Eliana and Ilya.

I’m sure if they’re current on editing phase but A Mage Reborn estimate release date is on July. Of course, this might change depending on the HG and the author.

I believe that is just for Book 1. The demo has a good portion of book 2 in it as well

But Im also kind of playing it like my MC thibks leo hates her and now that she knows Eli is alive shes always had a crush on him that way when she sees Leo again it can be a lovw triangle lol
