    Totoum (who's also a Ayahi fanboy) spammed links of various Ayahi niconico vids to me. And I must say she is an IMPRESSIVE vocalist. But like any anime singer, one must have enough dough to survive so there's also a bunch of mediocre stuff too (i.e. the nasal congested, high-pitched anime girl singing she also does).

    There's actually 3 good SoL's airing atm - Tari Tari, Hyouka (carryover from last season) and Kokoro Connect. I'm particularly surprised with Hyouka considering my bad experiences with "recent" Kyoani, but Hyouka is more Haruhi-like and less Lucky Star/K-on like. Kokoro Connect has been a pretty solid teen drama so far with a body swapping gimmick. Tari Tari is still /fanboy and just further proves that PA Works anime original moe SoL/dramas are the best in the current industry to me .

    But my fav of the season is Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita. Not sure if it's you're type of comedy, but I find it absolutely hilarious. Outside of the cute, colorful and crazy outside, it's brutally dark and ironic in its satire. What's even ironic is that it's directed by Seiji Kishi... and you already know how much I hate him . I do hate the OP though. F***ing emo nano ripe!

    Why thank you! I'm at the point now where they're more depressing than anything worth celebrating, but I appreciate the thought nonetheless.

    Been a while since we last chatted.

    Earlier today I finally located an affordable PS3. It required two buses each way, but thankfully the O-Bahn express line made the leg from Adelaide to Tea Tree Plaza damn fast. Was so weird being about 40-50km away from home in about 45 mins considering the first 30 mins to get from home to Adelaide only covers a bit over 10km. Just before you hit TTP and the big shopping complex they have, you suddenly realise 'Wow, there's a lot of woodlands here...and a huge lake...am I in the country already?!' Bit of a shock since I live in the coastal section of the inner suburbs. But yeah, those 40GBs were rather scarce. That was the only place that had a second-hand in the 40GB size so I had to act on it. For $128, I thought it was a decent deal. Particularly since the stores usually stock nothing smaller than 160GB these days and charge close to $300 for it.

    But yeah, PS3 is finally mine, so no prizes for guessing that I FINALLY got to start playing Catherine tonight. ^^

    So given your tastes using my superior spy skills, if there's one anime you should watch this season, it's Tari Tari. Also, you'll get a nice bonus down the road with me as I will most likely get to see me rage a few episodes later on when PA Works decide to deviate off like they always do...

    But for now... /fanboy mode.

    Oh, just saying hi, how are ya and thank you basically! Not much more than that.

    Berserker=Lancelot, eh? Interesting. I still don't believe in "lawful insane" as an alignment but I guess it makes sense for that sort of character in this sort of universe.

    Apparently the end of financial year sales are coming already, which is 1 month early...Usually they're not until July since the financial revolves around a July 1 start. But with global economics striking retail down big time, seems they're already happening. So acquiring Catherine is on the verge of happening it seems.

    If you're interested in Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, watch some of this first to get an idea of what it involves. Linked this guy because he gives useful advice in the description box and some very handy tips on levelling up later on.

    One thing I will say is, regarding your comments on Katherine - pity I've never met anyone like that. The women I've met across my life are either really shallow + only care about looks and being the centre of attention or overly domesticated. I've never met one I could be friends with. Okay, my mother is an exception, but heck...talking about women on a non-family level. I'm really sick of being surrounded by women who wear so much perfume it makes one want to faint/vomit or give you a look of 'drop dead for looking my way' when you go past them, or those that talk one step shy of soccer mums. It's disheartening. I'd like to think someone like what you say about Katherine exists, but I've never met someone who is like that. I'm not holding my breath that I will, either.

    A weird thought on drinking - I caught up with a friend for the first time in a couple of weeks. After we were done, he headed out with a 6-pack, 4 other guys and one woman. Can only wonder how that Saturday night ended up. Him pretending to be Spiderman is probably one of the least worrying results, ironically.

    "Totoum just did the unspeakable!"

    But guess who kept on insisting I do it because he didn't want to do it himself?

    One thing I should point out quickly - I haven't bought it yet. To make sure I would want it for the long run, I watched footage of Days 1 & 2 and Katherine's 'important discussion' in Day 3 on Youtube. I don't have a console yet. End of financial year usually has sales that go with it, so I'm waiting a bit to see if PS3s go down a bit more. As for why I'm picking PS3 over XBox - games on offer and the branding. I was once with Nintendo years ago but that ended a decade ago. Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky is also enticing me a lot, particularly because of Estelle Bright and the scenario/graphics which remind me of Golden Sun, but in a nicer way. I liked that JRPG style that didnt require stupid gimmicks/costumes and just went for a decent story and the usual offerings of gameplay. Although Seinarukana: The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2 is still my fave in that genre. Hopefully I can acquire that later this year when the English release comes out on PC, since a good gameplay and good 18+ content is a very rare mix.

    But I digress. What seems so weird to me about Vincent is he has a long-time girlfriend and are clearly sexually active, yet there's a distance to them. If they've been together that long, they're not living together yet? Seems rather odd, but that doesn't allow Catherine to get into the mix if that was the case, so from a logistics point, I understand why that isn't the case. From an emotional point, I can see some of why the two are together. Vincent helping out Katherine when she was dumped and needed dating advice, then falling for her - I can buy that and it's a plus in Vincent's favour for sure. What's acting as a major negative for me is how much time he spends at Stray Sheep...okay, I get he needs some 'him' time, but for the love of...why would he rather hang out with guys like Orlando when he could be getting intimate or chilling with Katherine...it's just so weird...broski time has its perks but it's also kind of redundant. Bobby seems okay as does the young kid, but Orlando...man, I thought I was jaded...Orlando is just cold. I guess he has his reasons, but man, he goes too far. Particularly towards Erica...she's probably the one character I want to hear more from thus far but can't because Orlando gets all snarky.

    From the point of the women, I do find Katherine likeable. She sounds like she has a decent career going but values a relationship and being a mother when the time comes. And form her general comments and text messages, she seems to be somewhat compromising and forgiving - maybe more than Vincent deserves. And I love the fact they gave her glasses. Nothing wrong with a woman having glasses. What I do want to see about her soon is what made her like Vincent, what she wants from the relationship and how she will react to the inevitable showdown with Catherine. As for Catherine, I don't think badly of her....yet. She is none the wiser that Vincent was with Katherine, so can't hold that against her. She isn't cheap or sleeping around, so have to give her credit for that too. Catherine definitely has that air of a young 20s woman who wants to have some fun and be uninhibited. There's a very fun aspect to her but also a very dangerous one. Katherine may not offer the excitement and thrills Catherine does, but she does offer loyalty, compassion and someone you can rely on for the long run. They are polar opposites. What I want to see more about Catherine is what her role actually is. My uncle, who got me onto looking for the game, spoiled to me what Catherine actually is, so I'm aware of the supernatural element, but not the context. I also want to know just how far Catherine will go in an inevitable showdown with Katherine. Thus far, I get the feeling Katherine will be mad with Vincent but that Catherine will be angry with Katherine and just might be crazy enough to get violent.

    As for how I'll play it...I'm not going to pick a side yet. As I see the facts, I will react. From what I've seen (Days 1-early 3rd), I am slightly in Katherine's favour. After the bombshell she drops on Day 3, it's hard to go against her. To suddenly drop Katherine after she reveals that would be rather low. Although I'm sure Catherine will have a bombshell of her own that will tip the scales in her favour at some point. And I'm not picking a side yet because it seems like the story needs you to not be so one-sided to reveal some of the content. But it is required to max the meter out in one direction to get the ending for that character? I know that Catherine is red and Katherine is blue, but I was wondering what degree the meter required to trigger their ending, because I figure dead even leads to the Freedom end.

    One thing I will say is that if I was in Vincent's shoes, I wouldn't be in a bar. ^^; Haven't been in one for around 10 years.
