I'm wondering if Free Cecilia is even going to be an Armor (since that would mean everyone would be getting a free ranged Armor). Meanwhile, Fae completes the Armored Dragon Trainee 180 BST trifecta (at least she keeps the antlers on when she transforms), while Ephraim's skills kinda preclude him from benefiting from Armor March or similar buffs. At least I can finally form Eirika Emblem (when they get around to repeating Leg Eirika), even if an Armored Healbot doesn't exactly jive with a Sord Lord and two Red Horses.

But really, its the Fierce Stance and Drive Res seals that are the big news of the upcoming T_T (only 2 seals? gdi).

As for AR, I've adopted the Reddit Defense Meta for my base, not because I'm a scummy rat bastard who's too full of spite for the mode and those who seek to profit at my expense to play fairly anymore, but because I want to see how other players deal with that all too commonly seen horseshit (which so far have either involved wipes, significant losses, or whales countering with their +10 Armored Dragon Trainee 180 BST steamrollers).

Spoiler: show
And also because I'm totally a scummy rat bastard who's too full of spite for the mode and those who seek to profit at my expense to play fairly anymore (this mode deserves all the shit that can be smeared onto it).

That aside, the one good thing about Surtrs is the fact that most don't bother with Distant Counter or Vantage (although I did eat a loss due to one having Miracle, but that match went down badly anyways and I would've walked away with 40 Lyft at best), so ranged options like Miccy and Cecilia can eat him if I can keep them alive long enough to get at him (and if I can reach him fast enough).

If I revisit the game, it'll be on PC since I have the plat for the PS 4 version.

Hmmm, I know very little about the next season. Anyone can offer some insight?
Is this a sign I'm getting old?
I can give you my limited thought?

5-Toubun no Hanayome- So I know that some people in a Discord I frequent love the manga. I don't think the manga has an official release yet (or if it does I didn't notice), so I can't give personal thoughts on the quality. But they seem to like it and I believe it is fairly popular in Japan?

Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen- Watch this! The source manga is amazing an almost always makes me laugh heartily whenever I get a new volume.

Yakusoku no Neverland- The manga is fairly well received. Something about the art feels off to me, so I never read it but most everyone else seems to love the story. Well at least for the portions that are likely going to get covered (current arc is getting a lot of "Ehhs" but that would probably be season 2 or 3...if it got there).

I'll probably end up watching Kaguya and the Code Geass movie. I'll probably also watch some of 5-Toubun.

Oh boy, an army of armors again (At least Ephraim actually put armor on top I guess). At least there wasn't some new completely broken Fighter skill thrown in this time I guess. We get our first staff armor though, and she's an absurdly good buffbot, automatically giving ATK+6/DEF+5/RES+5 to your highest ATK unit. Those are all inheritable though, I'm guessing Staff Armors as a unit won't be anything particularly special for anything other than rounding out an emblem team, because they don't get to equip both the stupid Staff skills and Fighter skills at once. They can't use Fighter skills well anyway since Healer specials are supportive (and have a cooldown of like 2 each anyway), and they can't reach their allies fast enough to give heal support- Physic only does so much.

Also I'm betting they stick Wary Fighter on Free Cecilia.

In banner news, I got a 5* Catria on my free pull of one of the New Power banners (+SPD -RES too, wish I had this luck on a 5* exclusive). Haven't gotten any 5*s out of Hero Fest despite having spent about 30 orbs on it on top of the mass of free pulls we've had. When we get our last ticket tomorrow I might spend a few more to try for an Eir- it's dumb, but at some point I'm going to need two Light Heroes to have any chance of advancing AR.

On that note, I'm moving into Tier 18 next week (and losing like 400 lift when that happens of course), meaning I'm going to need to earn 1000 Lift to be able to get to the next Tier. Considering how Light Blessings end next week, it will likely be impossible for me to advance because even if I play perfectly, I'll probably still be short thanks to getting -80 Lift basically every day. I have no idea why IS thought Surtr was a good idea- anybody who managed to pull him basically get free wins during these bonus weeks, basically every single defense map I've had involved someone shoving Surtr out front and tanking every single hit directed at him.

Started Costume Quest 2 today. Hoping to resolve the cliffhanger from the first game soon. Had to endure a bunch of battles with the candy corn costume before I unlocked pterodactyl.

The ending to Super Mario Galaxy made me a bit teary eyed. I thought it was really charming. Granted I wasn't completely done. There were still purple coins and many more stars to collect before reaching 100%.

Mob Psycho 100!

And maybe to see how they'll choose to end this version of Madara/Dororo/whatever.

That said, something tells me that they won't be able to capture lightning-in-a-bottle twice in a row for Kemono.

Fairy Tail, Jojo, Psycho Mob Season 2, maybe Index III...unless something comes from left field, I'm not seeing anything particularly interesting coming up that's new. Then again, winter season usually has the most surprises, so we'll see.

Also, that's A LOT of romantic comedies.

New animes:

Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari
It's an isekai and it's a fairly good one at that. Definitively in the top tier of the genre.

Domestic na Kanojo
By the maker of GE – Good Ending. A girl comes to the protagonist out of the blue asking for sex. He sexes her up and then learns that their parents remarried together and she's now his sister. Then, it's a clusterfuck of: I love her, I don't know if she loves me and we're also family.

5-Toubun no Hanayome
Five identical twins are being tutored by the main character. The serie starts at the wedding of one of the girls and the protagonist.
It's a giant switcheroo of girls and you're following hoping to one day know which of the five got the guy.

3D Kanojo 2
Second season of 3D kanojo. A weird hot girls goes out with a lame nerd and he feels self-conscious about it.
I read the manga and at least it's got a decent ending... as in there's an ending (which is already more than 99% of rom-coms).

Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen
The number 1 guy at school and the number 1 girl at school love each other but they can't confess because it would diminish their standing.
It's vapid and not really funny either.

This is like Akagi. There's no surprise because you know they'll win.
This is why everyone loves Kaiji better. It's more fun to follow a loser who sometimes wins than a winner that never loses.


Sword Art Online: Alicization
Fuck SAO.
We just had the obligatory rape scene last week and it was the worst yet.
I gave it a chance thinking that maybe this time the author won't use rape as a method of male empowerment for main characters... but nope.
Fuck this.

Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken
Best isekai around (since Overlord isn't playing =P).
It's all good stuff and the season will end before the story turns to complete shit (around volume 7 of the LN)

JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken: Ougon no Kaze
Jojo is apparently awesome... I should get to reading/watching those one day.

Toaru Majutsu no Index III
Man, the rhythm of this serie is really bad. It's like they are vomiting plot quickly in order to get to where they want to end it.


Code Geass: Fukkatsu no Lelouch
Here it is, the long promised and awaited continuation of Code Geass.

Fate/stay night [Heaven's Feel] II. lost butterfly
2/3. I'll wait until everything is out and binge the hell out of it eventually.

Youjo Senki Movie
Loli nazi the movie. I'm thinking they might not have to hold back in the movie and shit will be... yikes.

PSYCHO-PASS Sinners of the System Case 1/2/3
Nice try. You are dead to me.

No OVA worth talking about.

Since today is about Wind Waker I thought I'd leave a comment. Like a lot of people I initially shied away from it due to bad press at the time it received for the art style. By the time I got around to playing the game it quickly won me over and now it stands as my favourite entry and Gamecube title. The shift from land to sea was one departure I really loved whether its finding a new island or retrieving sunken treasure.

One cool tidbit I'd like to mention is that this game was showcased as part of an exhibit for the Vancouver Art Gallery I visited many years ago. The exhibit covered art in videogames, animation, comics, anime and manga; basically pop culture. I thought it was neat that the general public was being exposed to this game.
