    Well the gloves are certainly off now as of chapter 139, I kind of expected something like this but not in a way that Azami managed to also spin the benefits and play on people's worse instincts about preservation and taking the easy way out. Yes, Totsuki is harsh but that's what built this school and what they were technically here for/trying to achieve, perhaps some reform to account for different growth speed might be necessary but at the same time chefs like Megumi would never have grown in the first place without that additional pressure alongside a strong support system like her dorm mates. But I do see the appeal and wonder how exactly Soma and the rest of the gang will combat them and whether Jouichiro and Gin will arrive in time to make any real difference.

    Yup, that's the good Erina can do if she's willing to apply herself. It's not likely others could take her critics as well as PSD but that type of resiliency should hopefully allow her to modify like she was trying to back when she was a kid and after tasting Alice's cake etc.

    Oh definitely, thier motivations for going along with this have got to be a big part of their character development as well so I'm looking forward to exploring that and them much more. Oh, and on cue Eizan does not fail to disappoint by bringing that notice to PSD, THIS has been a long time coming and because Erina just got there I'm pretty sure whatever Eizan and the rest of the pro-Azami faction are planning for PSD they will not succeed, for now anyway, given that the author won't want to cut her character development and the potential budding relationship with Soma that abruptly. I can't wait to see the look on Eizan's face when he fails and hopefully it'll cost him his seat so we can be one step closer to fixing this nonsense. Guess we'll see whenever Jou actually does get there.

    But I heard the television ratings were pretty good though.... Ah well, I won't mind if it's another couple of years before they do but it was a good ride regardless and at least the manga's still here, going strong for us so we'll deal with it the best we can. Moving on then.

    Guess we'll just have to see, it might be another few years and a few more light novels but I definitely won't be surprised if/when they pick Mahouka up for another season, especially if the company itself gets into a bit of a rut and need to drum up some interest. Right, though that little opening scene between her and Qrow makes me wonder if they might somehow get a relationship going between them, I can only imagine how grating it must have been for Qrow that Tai Yang ended up with BOTH of their fellow female teammates even if one is likely his sister or at least related to him in some way. On the whole I think everything seems to be moving well though I am worried about how tight the timeline is and how much the RT animation team still has to edit/clean up even from that brief teaser is show. About the story itself I'm disappointed Cortana isn't continuing World of Remnant but I think Ozpin and the new animation sequences definitely make up for it and it was really interesting to see the stadium actually floats. That being said between the warnings and the ominous tone of the new opening things look to be taking a definite dark turn. Still not sure if the Raven we saw is Yang's mother given the slight differences in her curly hair versus that pictures depiction of more straight/pointed hair instead, I'm still on the fence if it's Yang's mom or some long lost twin that went with their mother instead but we'll see. Very excited regardless for the show's debut this 24th. And of course I'm exicted about the news regarding the manga AND for the nomination of Grimm Eclipse on Steam (if you've got an account go vote in support Dann, their should be a video link on the RT main youtube channel.) Right well, whenever either of us get around to them we can bring Ghost back into the discussion, but for now let's move on.

    True, it really depends in what form and capacity Tokyo Pop comes back, guess I'll keep my suggestions to myself until then. No big, I know it isn't your series, I'll likely speed run Fairy Tail myself once it seems like it's nearing the end anyway. Well, when you get a chance ask/show it to her, it'll definitely wash the bad test of the original Full Metal Alchemist anime ending out of ones mouth.

    True, and in this case I'm grateful to Sunrise for it, the U.C still has much potential even if in only side story form. Bah, they're just people who've always complained about the Newtype powers, honestly it was probably the fastest way to deal with everything while keeping their powers intact, and it gave us some throwback scenes reanimated so it's all good in my mind, along with being a proper send off by revealing the true history finally to the world. I'm not too worried about Barbatos getting way out of hand, at least not based on what I've seen so far now that we've gotten to episode 3, since there doesn't seem to be any deus ex machina explanations going on, but we'll know soon enough.

    I'm liking the direction of the plot overrall as well, along with potential character growth as well, they've got great foundations but also stuff that can be built off of it. Pretty much agree regarding all the interesting mechanics with the spinal system and the Barbatos' load on Mika, but for now I'm just really looking forward to what the first upgrade will be. Now, if you've already watched episode 3 we're getting underway with the main story, which in my view can go in two directions. If you haven't do so before moving on with this next sentence. Ready? Okay, so in my view they're either going to succeed with the negotiations upon completing their escort mission of Aina, OR they'll fail and join the open Mars rebellion which can hopefully spill into a season 2, but we'll see. Either one works for me, though I'll admit the latter has the opportunity to make things VERY interesting.

    The opening is a bit loud I have to admit, but at the same time I thought it appropriate for shouting that defiant spirit and taking the stand. What this show does and what this opening exemplifies above others is it takes a balanced approach to violence, yes it's horrible they're in this situation to begin with but at the same time it presents really the only way forward for them to continue to live and prosper at all. And the violence is DEFINITELY there if you've seen episode 3, I'm very curious to see how the Orphans navigate this without becoming complete monsters at the same time, but we'll just have to wait and see.

    Well, that kind of atmosphere only added to Twilight Princess' charm and helped differentiate it from the rest of the franchise. Yeah, though it wouldn't have taken much to beat out her competition given Midna actually had a personality... Man, I wanted to get better with Smash as well but once again never got enough time to actually practice... I always thought so, I didn't have a lot of games as a kid but boy was there a lot of gorgeous replay value for a Sega system that's considered antiquated these days. Oh, what did garner your interest in video games in general then? Super Mario opened my eyes but I'll admit Warcraft/Starcraft/Blizzard were the ones to really hook me before Final Fantasy opened me up to console RPG's. Well they need to do something more to turn things around then just handhelds... but I digress.

    Won't be much longer until we do with the Divison Beta thankfully. Eh, you're probably right though I suppose Ralph could use his own significant other..., but we'll see.

    Given it's running straight to console I think something in between Type-0 and XV will probably work for the Remake in terms of balancing character diversity with greater mechanical depth. Yeah, let's taper down just a little bit with Platinum, say maybe Kingdom Hearts level of gameplay if we want a maximum emergence threshold for the Remake

    Well, nothing to be done about Ace Attorney anyway. As for Fire Emblem I only mention it because the Fate version of the game is likely to come out over to the U.S so it might be a good idea for you to use what free time you have on it, especially given the portable nature once again. In any event I never did care about the stats anyway, and if I ever do get handhelds I'll just go with my ideal pairings. But moving on.

    Ah, that's too bad. Well let me know what if anything I can do to help. But in the meantime I'll leet you deal with whatever's come up for you, so moving on.

    True that, For Honor is definitely something for us to keep any eye on.

    And with that I think I'll bring both these two previous threads to a close. If there are any other issues you want to discuss then please do so Dann, but as I've said we've pretty much exhausted these topics so I'll end it here and prepare to get the rest up tomorrow now that we're entering manga/anime territory.

    Okay, I know I said I'd cut the game discussions out but I did want to get in a few closing statements. One, I don't play the 40K games much either but I do love the lore and on top of reading the books I also download copies of the rule-book publications and such as well since they also have a ton of lore and are often depicted as historical texts. That being said I think Battle Fleet Gothic and Total War: Warhammer are definitely two of the more interesting games to come from the franchise and something to watch out for. Sounds like a good plan, if it makes things easier on your time and wallet then go for it. And okay, I'll definitely file Gravity Rush away to look up in the future.

    Yeah, it's more for practical reasons I look to the Vita on my part, consoles are a no-no until I get a full-time salary, but I won't dictate which version you want to get and won't blame you if seeing Odin Sphere on the big screen is really appealing since you actually can do it. Huh, sounds interesting, I'll file 13 Sentinals away as something to look out for as well, let me know if anything new comes up. That's too bad, I thought that Demon Blade spiritual sequel was kind of interesting not to mention my BlazBlue fanboying, plus Atlus and Arksystem seem to work so well together I kind of throw in the Persona series among others into that equation. Regardless you picked a good one in Odin Sphere to try and I'm sure this Remake will bring back some enjoyable memories along with new experiences. But moving on again.

    Guess that wraps up XV and Remake until more news arrives.

    I think they're just rendering pictures of actual dishes Dann, not animating the food from scratch Well, it's only speculation until/unless something is announced so we'll leave the release date announcement for XV there for now. Huh, the XV Duscae Demo isn't giving an indication of individual damage spreads depending on what body part is hit? Well, suppose all we can do is look forward to those events, moving on then.

    Intersting, you're probably right then that 2.8 indicates III might be awhile longer, though early 2018 instead of late 2017 at the LATEST hopefully. But we can only see if more info pops up, moving on.

    You're probably right, well we'll know by next year, so let's just hope for the best with Last Guardian. I'd recommend the youtube route with Uncharted 3 definitely.

    Everything else seems pretty much said, so moving on.

    I did see, and I'd heard talk about it but RT hadn't confirmed it last I checked, though I'll look into it. Sounds pretty good, but I'd hold our horses about a 2D anime given how it might compete with the actual 3D series. Anyway, gonna start working on responses tonight, hopefully I get them done by tomorrow, there's a lot to talk about after all.

    Yeah, but I really need to still be more on point next year, I did much better last year with panels even though I cut way down on my exhibition touring to wait the necessary amount of time. And I was really peeved on Sunday when the Namco&Bandai RPG panel was full the moment the convention center opened its doors, I know you would have appreciated more news about Tales of Zestria and some of their other projects. Anyway, I'm going to hold off on any big responses for a little while, feeling a little sick right now, but note that aside from a few mentions of what I saw at Deus Ex I'm probably going to cut out the video game discussions until we get more news later in the year.

    Bah, I'm getting outmuscled, I lost out on Aniplex, Funimation and Namco RPG panels. I'll fill you in on what I did do later I guess, but I definitely need to be more dedicated to panels next year. Short of Kara aka Weiss coming next year, or Aryn aka Blake for just the Volume 3 poster, I hopefully shouldn't lose out like I did this time waiting for signings.

    I was at that panel when they announced it actually. The big news was the Tiger & Bunny live action movie though. But I immediately thought of you as they were going through all the planned Gundam series with disc releases Also Volume 3,World of Remnant 1 is out. Feel the hype with me Dann.

    Also, there's a AoT anthology series with Western Comic book artists doing a bunch of short stories. Vertical Comics are also coming out with light novel audio books, including the ones for AoT, while they will also be adding a Mikasa and Annie Light novel to their overall lineup, and I also suggested they pick up Return of Johnny Ridden now that Origins manga is about to finish but we'll see, I'll probably have to pester them more before they male s up their minds. But overall I was pleased with a lot of the new lineup announcements for the manga publisher panels I went to. Oh, and I saw the Deus Ex : Mankind Divided panel, along with Adam Jensen' s VA. Will keep you posted when I try and get into Yen Press, Aniplex, and Funimation tomorrow.

    I saw all those, mostly cause I'm scouring for info after missing the RWBY panel today because Sean Bean took so long to come out for his panel for Legends so I could take a picture.

    Well, Blake's VA was Annie for AoT, Weiss' VA was Sakura from Code:Breaker among others including the Sendawa twins from Shokugeki recently, and Ruby' s was among many others Sachi (chick who died in the dungeon that scarred Kiroto mentally ever since) from SAO. I'll see if I can't dig up any news at the Rooster Teeth booth when I go visit again, gotta finish getting stuff signed anyway.

    Edit: This article basically summarized everything at the panel. Lot off details but no new content beyond stills for the first episode so at least I didn't miss out there. Oh, and be sure to vote with me on the 14th to get the RWBY game on steam, link is in the article.

    Dann, to save space could you edit your Orphans comments into your previous post? I made some brief remarks about that in the second paragraph of my very last post along with my own impressions briefly, and a link to the Orphans opening. But I'd like to move it into the Sunrise post discussion to help consolidate/keep track of things. And please feel free to add more details then I did since I wanted to avoid spoilers.
