My team was Lynx, Fargo, and Leah. 

I feel like I should've used Miki, because Leah went down leaving Lynx and Fargo to clean up.  And in prior dragon fights, Miki has been my MVP.  I'll admit, despite seeming like she'd be a lame throwaway character she's definitely grown on me.

Hah, love the pun.  I'm a fan of groaner puns.

It's amazing how stupid movies can be loads of fun when viewed with the right company.  For example, the movie Bad Teacher is as stupid as all get out, but I enjoyed it when watching it with my bandmates.

I just find idolizing my normals frustrating because I hardly get the doubles I need so I can collect more backstories and love gems.  I like how some normals have their own little side stories.  Like the three in the disciplinary committee (Hitomi Shiga, Chiduko Sakamaki, Mikoto Fukuhara).  

Anyway, my ID# in the game is 376726528 for anyone else playing.  Search and friend me.  

Random asides:
Regular "cool" Nico looks 100 times better than idolized "cool" Nico.  
Mikoto Fukuhara is the least attractive idol.  
I'm still trying to figure out whose story vignette I like best and whose "poke" dialogue I enjoy most.
My favorite song is definitely Mermaid Festa vol. 1, #2 is Natsuiro Egao de 1,2,3 Jump, and I may have to put Dash as my #3.  
And when it comes to 9-piece bands/groups, I wholeheartedly prefer μ's over Slipknot.

Indeed.  That "gimme" UR Kotori has really pathetic stats.  And even among the Pures, I favor my Rare Nico pure over my SR Nico (wearing an apron) Pure, because the lower-ranked one has an HP replenishing power. 

My best card, statistically, is my SR Honoka in pajamas (which I got during a random, run-of-the-mill scouting.) 

I kinda wish there was card-trading in the game.  Would make idolizing my normals easier, since I only seem to get the same few each time.  I don't mind the experience fodder, but still...  I also wish there was more to the normals since several of them look way cooler than the main idols.  Why can't they develop leader skills?  "Cool" Hitomi Shiga, for instance- I think she's the most attractive idol.

Okay, so I defeated the green dragon that looked like a massive toad.  I lost miserably the first time due to carnivore, but then I won slowly the second time just keeping the field from becoming all green.  Leah is in the party now. 

...and I'll have to put Chrono Cross on hiatus AGAIN due to a pair of RPGFan-related projects.

I obviously loved Grim Fandango: http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/grimfandango/Grim_Fandango.html

I kept spending them on one-time scouting.  I'm also not very good at saving up my Friend Points. 

But now, in 2015, I resolve to save my Love Gems and Friend Points.

It's Hanayo's birthday today. Get those 5 love gems.

Yay.  One day I'll accumulate 50 and do an 11 for. 

Natsuiro no Egao 123 in expert mode is fun.  That's one of my favorite songs.

Audiobooks, then.  That being said, some don't always have the best choice of narrator.  ( I myself am getting into audiobook narration.)

We have 3 editors on this game like hot sauce on chicken wings.

And I love that the developer is bucking the trend and saying "no DLC, the game will be 100% complete right out of the box."  You don't see that very often these days. I like the idea of the game being the full monty right out of the box.

Score Matches in School Idol Festival are so much fun.  I haven't had time to do much this time around, though.

I'm kinda surprised more people weren't talking about it back when it came out.  That was one of the best movies I saw last year. 

I just got back from seeing The Wind Rises.  The quick and dirty of it is that it was a great movie and I encourage anyone to go see it.  Visually, it's beautiful.  I love how the storytelling and pacing are subdued and scenes are allowed to breathe; not like the ADD nature of film these days.  I was compelled for the entire duration, which is more than 2 hours.  I like that it's just a simple story told well without any melodrama or bombast.  There were plenty of dreamy visuals (though those were kept nicely grounded) and plenty of signature visual cues that say "yep, that's Miyazaki."  

What I liked is that there was no melodramatic moral conflict about building war planes, which is what typical Hollywood would do.  No, Jiro was an engineer to the core and viewed things through that analytical lens.  The normal person would be asking "but what about the moral/ethical dilemmas?" but to the true engineer at heart, that's irrelevant.  Dream, design, and make the impossible possible.  No ifs, ands, or buts.  Maybe because my dad is an engineer (a chemical engineer) I could relate to Jiro and his point of view more than someone who maybe doesn't quite "get" the mind of an engineer.  The way aircraft designs danced in his dreams reminds me of the way my dad says numbers and designs for the kind of equipment he specializes in simply dance.  

Basically, I think that people who dis the movie or its protagonists simply don't "get" it.  

Great change of pace from what Miyazaki is most known for.  I loved it, though my favorite Miyazaki film is still Howl's Moving Castle.
