Anyone hear of Platina Jazz?  Taking your favorite anime themes and turning them into sweet sweet jazz.
Not featured on the page (check out their albums on iTunes), but Haruhi's Opening (Bouken no Deshou Deshou_ is, IMO, way better as a jazz tune than a happy J-pop tune. <3  Their Sailor Moon cover is similarly very classy and a real fun rendition of the popular tune.

As far as "skit programming" goes, Tales of Berseria's are looking pretty fancy

So many delicious pictures...!!!

I seriously just watch LPs to see how native English speakers butcher common words.

Scarce....oh man.
I like intentionally calling a "program" as "progrum" just to fuck about.

My favorite FF moments are FFIII's Flooded World,
Cecil's Job Change, Galuf's last stand,
FFVI's Floating Continent sequence (mostly), the Cosmo Canyon's and City of the Ancients' sequences (I'm talking about the entire City of the Ancients sequence, and mostly the part where you're running into the ruins and the part where you're fighting JENOVA Life; the parts centering around Aerith are only included to give context to the other parts as these are rather heavy handed for my taste), the Burmecia and "You're Not Alone" sequences (though its been 16 years since I last played this game) and hitting Chapter 4 in FFT.
Damn some good moments here

Some of mine:

IV: The moon (as a child of like 4 years old, I thought the name Fusoya and a man with a giant beard hilarious...and fat Choco... and dwarves!).

VI: Goddamn, a lot, this was my childhood nostalgia RPG.  I always thought Sabin's scenario en route (and some zig-zagging) to Narshe a bizarre and fun odyssey.
VII:  Midgar, Ancients... Lots of good "moments" in this game, but Disc 1 was freaking great.

IX: The opening, and literally and any "down time".

FFX/X-2 to Steam.  With MORE improvements (though I doubt the NPCs will be less uggo).

I am VERY excited about Civil War, but.... I don't know when I'll see it.  My wife's not interested.

I'll go with you Arvis!

But anyways, I feel like movie nights are a thing where it helps to sort of 'bite the bullet' from time to time with your SO.  Your tastes won't always match, but movies usually are a bit more fun with company or someone to talk to about it after.   Offer to see something she wants if she goes with you. :)

I'm really liking the protagonists right now; in P3 everyone seemed kinda introverted one way or another, P4 had a much more positive looking crowd, but I like how P5's team seem like the "go getter" types -- they're gritting their teeth, or the hero is shown getting interrogated with his face beat in a bit, and I like that sort of "thieves in the night" motif; it's a bit more exciting than the high school uniform and it feels a little more 'lively' compared to the last few Persona games.

Anyways, point is the game will be, if anything, a complete eye-gasm of gorgeous UI design.

@Agent D.: Yeah that's one. She also did it once or twice in XIII, as well as one time in Dissidia 012.

Honestly is more of an stance that comes and goes really quickly more than only a pose. And besides, Squall's Gunblade design and use is much more tricky to get to understand clearly instead of the one Lightning has since the entire design of the weapon is as flexible as her fighting style and it actually fire projectiles instead of only being able to strike your opponent with a melee attack.

I'm still amazed that something like Squall's gunblade "took off".  I kinda thought it was a cheesy idea and I never really got how it's supposed to work (does it fire or just sort of...add extra 'umph' to hits??).  FF8 in general I'm kind of ambivalent on; for half of the good designs there's an equal part of ones that just didn't really work with me.... NORG being a big one of these. :P

I really gotta revisit that game though, and/or just finish my FF PSX-era game journals on it.

Early 2017 in the West. That's about it.

I'm glad we're not getting this game this year. Zestiria, upon reflection, was really disappointing even if it was fun. Annualization has killed the joy of this series for me a little. And I love pirates in RPGs, but I'm not totally sold on the whole game just yet. Aside from Velvet and Eizen, the cast seem a little meh, and nothing about the game stands out.

I think I'll still pick it up. Tales is my comfort food RPG series.

"Comfort food RPG" is totally spot on. x)
Xillia 1 and 2 were a little better when I replayed them, but it still had its issues.  Zesteria I just flat out couldn't finish; I got so annoyed with trying to make progress in that game with an equipment system from hell, the troll-toll to use quick travel, and a pretty mild plot even when it tried to be exciting.  I really wish Sorey and Mikleo were a canon couple; it probably would have been the most exciting thing to happen in the game.... ah well, literally the best thing I can think of from Zesty was getting Go Shiina back to compose a few tunes.

Velvet in Beseria looks like she's basically pulling a Tales version of Lightning.  Hopefully skits can lighten her up.  Given how transparent the demon/angel thing is between her and the main kid though, I haven't set the bar very high.

...a smokescreen for "we wanted to make them look sexy." 

It would honestly be way less demeaning if they just confessed to that.

I'm just going to have go all anti-mainstream opinion but I honestly think her outfit is super cute.

I'd agree if she cut off the ragged bits.  She honestly looks like a hobo with fancy hair.

Yeah, my complaint is that Eruca is mostly underleveled. Once she starts to become useful, she is out of the narrative. Rosch is perpetually out of the picture early into the game when gaining EXP is crucial. I'm glad the game levels up characters in the party even though they aren't involved in combat, but even still some characters I've ignored.

Largely due to that structure of the game is probably why my main party was usually just Stocke, Rainie, and Marco.  But they weren't a bad group either.  For the most part, and if you bothered changing parties, just about any team in that game was pretty well balanced since each character filled a nice niche.  In the end I think Stocke was the more boring character turn since his best was usually just attacking.

I watched a lot of the Last Samurai because it's on a lot for whatever reason these days.

What can I say, I enjoyed it.

Tom Cruise's hair in that movie is flawless.
And Ken Watanabe is a perfect person in general.

Speaking of which, have folks seen the trailer for Seth Rogen's animated movie, Sausage Party? Twisted.


Laura Kate Dale did an ASMR reading of an orgy scene from the leaked script of that movie on her YT channel and it reads like it was written by a 15 year old that just got done watching a bunch of porn for the first time.

Yeah... I wanted to get into it, but it looked like something by Seth MacFarlane than Seth Rogen. :P
I'll wait on reviews.

Really nice Lightning bust (er, hips and higher) up for preorder


Definitely prefer this to the Play Arts series.  Hopefully they do more, and hopefully outside of the Nomura-based comfort zone (I was so happy when Dissidia's release meant a lot more merch from the other FF games).

^ I never understood the popularity of the original Mary Poppins film. I've always thought it was an awful, terrible film. Even when I was a little kid. I remember hating it whenever someone would put it on. So... I guess I'm saying I don't see how a sequel (of sorts) could be much worse.
Plus, it helps that Emily Blunt is somewhat attractive.

Watch Saving Mr Banks then.  I think it offers a pretty good idea behind the film and I like the sort of interpretation that the film is much more about the kid's dad than the kids and their adventures (which is much more the fun fluff of the film).

That and the music from Mary Poppins is brilliant and catchy as hell.

I love Emily Blunt, but Julie Andrews is irreplaceable as Mary.  I don't doubt Blunt can do a great job, but to me, it just won't be "the new Mary".
