On screen, Sachiel faces the camera and releases a blast of light.
The monitor fills with noise.
Man (OFF):“Turn the results each up by one stage directly. Do this at any time.”
Reichu: Ahh, the first “cross-blast” of the show. It was pretty hard to piss Sachiel off earlier, but apparently being bombed has made him a bit surly. Now he won't even stand for the UN's flying spycam taking pictures of him while he's looking his worst.
felineki: Sachi's got pretty good aim! “Stupid UN paparazzi… LEAVE ME ALONE!!!” **zap**
MDWigs: This cross-shaped blast is pretty typical, though, and I've seen it used in other shows (but I can't think of specific examples off the top of my head). It's the Christian cross-shaped blasts (with the the cross bar up from centre) that are the more telling ones, I think.
Reichu: Well, typically, this cross-shaped “eye-glow” tends to imply that a giant, fiery, Christian-type cross is soon to follow… as we'll see in Part B. But you're right. This sort of thing is referred to as a "halation", I believe.
