Why does Eska have a tail?

Kawaii-desu.

FFMQ: may not be a "real" FF, but I'll be damned if I said I didn't love the boss and battle music of the series.  Someone did right.  And I loved the enemies showed they were close to dying.

EDIT: I didn't know it wasn't the first FF game in Europe....yikes.  Poor Europe.

^ It's completely valid, nothing hurts when you love the source material only to hve things changed for the worse in, daresay, a more "exciting medium" like in the full sound and action of a TV production.

Kinda reminds me of an interesting take on my manga haps -- where the anime actually one-upped the manga source material:

Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden finale:
Code:
So, little known secret to those who read the original Suzaku series, and since the Genbu Saga is a PREQUEL, we know the heroine will die.  And she does -- quite tragically I might add.  Interestingly enough, the series finishes on the same note that the Byakko priestess met hers: she may have been separated from her one true love, but they "meet again in Heaven".  What's interesting is that the anime actually added that in, and Yuu Watase was pretty upset she didn't think of the same thing (where the couple were separated and simply lived out their lives).  So it's kind of funny that she chose to end the Genbu Saga the same way the anime wrapped up one of its other characters.  Essentially, she copied the idea from the anime based on an addition in her source material. o_O

Not that it's a bad thing, at least it provides some sort of "hope" to the readers and some end to not make it so tragic (and it fits in the "Watase-line of thinking").  Made a bitter-sweet ending a bit sweeter -- but I will say that knowing the ending beforehand made the manga a bit off-putting. =/

Dunno if anyone else reads Fushigi Yugi, but just a random aside:
I like the Suzaku Seven better... but Takiko is a better lead than Miaka.  Goddammit, ya just can't win.

Oh man, that desolate, broken landscape with the red sky and remains of old technology.  Could you have hit my weakness for environment any more, Gust? Also, that lonely house, overgrown by plants. I'm almost clapping my hands in glee.

Here's to hoping for more Keith.  There's never enough Keith.

Edit:
Oh dear...The clothing physics still need a bit of work.  They've been improving slowly, though.

I really hope the next update is about returning characters.  Be nice to see a slightly older/wiser Ayesha or Nio.  Keith especially, I thought he was a surprise out of a JRPG (anyone else think he looks older than 45 though?)

Even if there is a graphical short-coming, so long as there isn't lag anymore, I'll be happy.

Dragon Quest is more consistent in its quality than practically any series that SQEX has nowadays (outside of whatever they publish from other companies and Eidos Montreal).

I'd kill to see Mischief Makers make a come back, that game was sick.

Isn't that the N64 game made by Treasure?

Oh shoot, nearly forgot.  Yeah, Treasure made it, Enix just published. 

I'm kinda merging my publishers with my creators, but hey, where would we be without them?

Eus:  I EXPECT KH games to be a storyline train wreck, I'm in it for the gameplay, a fun-ass hack'n'slash in familiar places (with one pretentious final level). :D

Mmmmmm, Logy.

Screens are really impressive.  Given how Rorona was a catastrophe of a title, there was really nowhere to go but up, but I do like the series for (seemingly) improving on every new title lately.  Graphically, I think we're again another step up.

As far as I can tell, the only brand of Enix's that still lives today is Dragon Quest.... and it lives on like the tumor it is.

I'd kill to see Mischief Makers make a come back, that game was sick.

Stomach flu. Done a lot of sleeping and barfing today.

And that, as they say, are the haps.

Worst.

I had it coming down when I was driving home from school... I was practically in a fetal position except for the petal on the gas/brake... Needless to say, for road safety purposes, I pulled over and called my folks to grab me, they arrived just as I was "upchucking" over the side of the car.

Story continues, read at own nasty risk
Code:
My mum proved her love that night that.  I took off my necklace since it was bothering me while I was trying to sleep off the disease, and it fell into my... "waste disposal bin".  I told my mum, and the dear woman fished it out and cleaned it for me... and after that I learned what "love" is (specifically parental love).

Get better, it doesn't tickle!

^ I love those pop/rock mashups.  Impressive one-take (you gotta know the fuck out of your cues I'm sure)

A metal version of Barbie Girl...it's actually really awesome.

I've been bringing in some of the worst numbers at work lately.... I used to be the best (till they told me I was the best...goddamn jinx!!)

Then I come home to see I am missing two invites to party and have some fun.

Now I am copying notes from a textbook.

I was feeling poopy till my puppy barged in and said "what up" in her doggy eyes.

I played Legend of Mana recently.  To my surprise I opened a treasure box and found a "Virgin's Sigh".... I don't know what to do with it.

This game is so so random.  I honestly think a remake/rescript could help it.  Also, I don't get blackmsithing, there doesn't seem to be values attached to anything.

"Never judge a person until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes" seems to be an apt phrase here. Relationships are seldom the same for any two people and I, for one, try not to judge even my best friends relationships, it seldom turns out good for any of us, even if I am trying to be helpful. Honestly is sometimes about the persons perception. Hope that makes sense. On a happier note for me after putting in 72 hours this week I am off ALL weekend, yeah me!

I don't think there's any doubt about Ashton's "bumpy" (for lack of better words) love-life, the dispute is against "women having an easier time getting men".  Which I say is false unless we're talking about sexual gratification -- not actual "relationships", and constantly bringing "woman's advantages".  Also, Ashton, Canadian law is somewhat more critical in regards to uttering threats against someone (not regards to making an arrest, but getting cops to at least mediate the situation or what have you -- and in which case, I see nothing wrong with leaving someone who makes a threat).

Anyways.  Women are she-devils.  I'm moving on.

Lots of work to do today, but I began the morning with sunlight shining into the bathroom as I shower and washed my hair with a lovely peppermint shampoo-poo. :D
It was perfect.
