No I didn't - he was literally running by on his way to do something with one of those big walkie talkies hanging off of his belt and I was surprised. It was one of those "did I just see what I think I saw?" moments. XD
Skyfall hounded me for days to play the game. Every time I logged in he would ask me if I started. Finally, I just told him to give me bit of narrative on the story. It is a beautiful story and I am certain that I will be enjoying the anime rendition based on the first two episodes. I have my tissue paper ready.
I haven't seen another rpg style story that had purposely showed the gruesome detail of the death of a goblin . The pacing is simply amazing. RPG supposed to mimic slice of life type of stories but I don't think there is another such show which has done as well as Grimgar at visualizing that aspect. And yet the story is so brutal.
I haven't seen Shouwa Rakugo yet but I'm planning to later on.
Gotta agree with you btw ... I am really, really, really enjoying Grimgar this season ... although I don't think it is the "best" series airing right now (I would give that award to Shouwa Rakugo thus far) it is the one I anticipate the most week to week.
