With the game being like 70% visual novel and 30% the story better be. Izebel's flashback is like stretch of reading I've done outside books or standard VN I've done in a long time. Glad to hear the sales were good, hopefully that means Aquaplus next are a sort of lock for localization.
On Falcom, I'm actually playing the Ys games for the first time and I'm really surprised at how much I'm enjoying them. The Kiseki games were previously my only experience with them, but Ys is living up to the hype so far despite much less story orientated. I don't think I need to say anything on the music.
...And here I thought I was only one who's been playing/has played this game. ;_;
Really I'm surprised how I enjoyed this despite 1) it sort of coming out of nowhere for me and 2) not having remembering much of the anime. Even through it obviously fairly low budget it's an fantastic title! I'm only half only way through the game (just beat ch6) and really like all characters and plot so far. Classes and battle system is limited in customization, but they still hold quite a lot of depth in regards to movement and abilities, especially if want those bonuses (I'm a crazy completeist).
Speaking of sigs though, glad to see another Falcom fan as well.
Yeah...keeping up with PreCure series can be tough...they are all at 4 cour or so, and if not kept up on a weekly basis after a while steamrolling is the more realistic option, it seems. In the past I would steamroll PreCure series when I had a lengthier time, either expectedly (like now, in a Christmas vacation kind of thing) or unexpectedly (like when I threw my back out so bad I was unable to walk for almost two months - miserable, but I was able to catch up on some books, correspondence and anime series.
Regarding series like Durarara it is a pity, because I know they are good series but they just don't click. Kinda the same as poets or opera or fiction or essayists. You are exposed to certain artists, you can objectively see they are talented and that the story is well done, but for whatever reason it just does not work for you. Ballet is an example of an entire art form that does that for me...and I know I am missing something wonderful, but....
Well, who knows. Maybe season two will click. I am willing to give it a try at least.
Regarding prefetences...tbh the current avy and sig is more in honor of one of the series I anticipated to enjoy the most before the season began. When I was at the end of preparing them the similarity between Noel and Flower occured to me, but only then, to be honest.
The avy and sig will change next season back to Nyanta from Log Horizon, in honor of season two of that series. At the moment I do not anticipate being overwhelmed by any new offerings from the Winter 2014-15 season, and the series that have most caught my attention seem to be in the category of lighthearted fluff. That is okay as far as it goes, I guess. Still, fortunately we have Akatsuki no Yona, Log Horizon 2 and Shirobako carrying over. Oh, and Nanatzu no Taizai and Bonjour Pattisiere as well, though they are kinda more lighthearted for me, I guess.
What have you thought of the past season? Any anticipated offerings next season?
Oh, hey. Hello there! *pulls Enternal in* nah don't worry about it, I know it's difficult to show up again after disappearing for a long time though it does feel rather lonely since you're the only chat buddy left for me, lol
Glad to see you still energetic as ever, hahah. Still managed to eat all of the anime? that's what you call no compromises between work and fun. Yeah, time to enjoy the holiday season, yay! although it'll be the opposite for me since my sister is getting married next month so we're really busy preparing everything here.
Whoa, you still have many games to buy? o_O talking about Japanese games, it's quite sad that so many are moving toward PS4. It's just too fast IMO. PS3 still has some life in it. Although I can understand that the gamers do switch to the next gen fast too.
I see, no wonder why she always return in the next games then and that explains why her screentime is high alright Yeah, the plus version also piques my interest. Especially the special chapter between him and Escha. Aww, I believe they're gonna be cute!
Yeah, still no info about the sequel, though. And it's for PS4. Talking about PS4, have you seen the latest Neptune VII news? the goddess form of the new character, Uzume Tennouboshi [img]has been revealed[/img]. And I really like it! it seems that she's going to have a drastic personality change too, like Neptune and Pururut. Although in this case, she's going from serious and mature (human form) into the childish and cutesy (the goddess form), the opposite of Neptune. The mature-Neptune looks "yummy" too. She's a real hottie indeed. Speaking of Dog Days 3, I posted the new image featuring a new character and the thread suddenly turned into waifu wars thanks to mangatron
Oh? how come you forgot your own collection? Luckily I don't have any artbook that I'm after so far, so my money's quite safe.... for now.... since there was an announcement of Lantis Festival in Singapore and Chihara Minori is one of the lineup (I'm a big fan or her). Damn, I really have to come to the festival.
Yes, I do have twitter, although I use it only to follow persons and companies, and not for communicating with others. From your posts, you are into some really interesting stuffs. Never knew that you'd play games such as Enslaved. I can add you for sure and I might drop a comment from time to time.
..........Are you asking how I feel about Claire? Or Lisha?
Because I don't like Claire that much, but I do like Lisha.
Claire gets a lot of her dislike because she beats up Kamito a lot. Which she is still doing in the current volume. She has improved immensely since the start, but the simple fact is she is still a physically violent tsundere.
Now, thanks to her backstory (which I love) I can forgive her for that. Her being like she is makes sense. However, the fact that Claire, a talented but mostly normal spiritualist, beats up on Kamito, the strongest Blade Dancer in the world, that annoys the hell out of me. I just don't like one-sided comedic violence much. Two-sided is fine, but otherwise it looks like an abusive relationship, which is retarded when the abused one could shred the other like three-day old bologna.
She's not a tsundere. Her initial appearance makes her seem like one, but that wasn't tsundere, it was genuine anger and dislike. And afterwards she became completely dere.
