I like internal consistancy in my fiction
I did not realize how much I liked it, until I started reading the Trinity Blood novels. (not the anime or the manga, although those gave me an inkling of what I was about to get into, had I realized)
Hello? The vampire/Methuselah 'history' changes from one chapter to the next.
Leon is said to have been in jail for '20 years' but claims to be 'not yet 30'.
And I could go on.
And I really can't blame this all on translation, oh no.
