@Tomara *Anime character voice* EHHHHHHHH?

Toma-san, how does one live in the Netherlands... but not see the sea for so many years...

Well, when a man loves a woman very much... He'll move to the other side of the country to be with her, develop a dislike for his home region and tell his children never to move there. It takes three hours to get to a proper beach (and not, you know, a bit of sand near an evolved puddle), and I never really took the time/had the chance.

I've been to a beach twice in my whole life. First time I was maybe ~2, too young to remember. Sevond I was ~5 and I remember gathering seashells and playing in the waves. O, and also walking from the parking spot, through the dunes, to the beach!

Oh, and I saw the sea three years ago. I was in Den Hague for an anime convention, and our hotel room happened to be pretty high up and face the sea. We took a picture and went back to work.

Looking at the temperatures, Hawaii looks rather hot, but then again, the ocean breeze probably makes a huge difference. I think. I haven't exactly seen a sea up close in 25 years, so...

At least they only expect mind-reading. I've met people who want me to time-travel... How am I supposed to review a complete anime series when only half the episodes have been broadcast thusfar?!

In other news: I've finally picked my outfits for this weekend. They all meet the three C-requirements: comfortable, cute and creep-proof. I'm going to be just fine while I secretly laugh at cosplayers that made poor choices. (Seriously, though, I do hope other people are sensible about the weather as well. Abunai attracts, fittingly enough, enough small scale disasters as is. They don't need people fainting left and right.)

I guess Chad's problem is that all he could ever do is punch stuff (and launch Rukia like a rocket). It's difficult to build a good fight around that without giving him constant power-ups. ... And even that wouldn't have been great, as the constant power-up thing is what Ichigo does and him hoarding powers got boring pretty fast. (That's why I like Uryu, his fights are more varied. He's not allergic to thinking and coming up with plans to take down his opponents. Okay, Kubo rarely lets him actually win, but still...)

Speaking of breakfast, the second biggest animeconvention in the Netherlands is coming up and the thing I'm looking forward to most is breakfast. The hotel always has the really impressive yet affordable buffet, and we just kind of sit down with a group of friends and eat and chat for an hour. It's the best.

(Other than that, I'm kind of dreading convention. It'll be at the tail-end of a heat wave and the big hall were I'll spend most of my time is like a freakin' greenhouse. Last year we had one really hot day and it was bad, this year we'll have three even hotter days in a row.

Oh well. Nothing I can do about it aside from packing cute summer dresses and staying hydrated. And, I have three workshops on Saturday, and those are all in rooms with AC. Princess Lea ('s Cosplay Repair Point) might have her own airconditioned room again as well. Maybe I'll drop by in my spare time and help out there if that's the case. Regular Lea is a pretty great person, Princess Lea with her own airconditioned room during a heatwave is the best person.

To think that temperatures like that are pretty normal during the San Diego Comic-Con... How do people survive that?!)

On another forum we discuss the series English volume by English volume and for the past four(!) years, the thread has known pretty much two types of content:
1. Hilarious complaints about the story (and sometimes artwork - draw some backgrounds, damnit!)
2. Cheering for Uryu (which is rare, because he doesn't show up that often, but we do all seem to be fans of that dork)

We're probably going to end up very disappointed in some way or another.

Hmmm, good question... I'd say it has a bit of an Inu Yasha vibe but in 16-bit style. The use of Japanese tile sets and other assets is consistent. You might see a NPC in western style clothing, but those sprites are so tiny it hardly stands out. The tone of the story is relatively light. On the one hand you have a country in a serious situation: people who commit one of the seven deadly sins turn into a demon. And the story does deal with death and loss. On the other, the people living there, including the playable characters, have had some time to get used to the threat. They have lives and interests beyond killing demons (for instance, Kenshi loves cooking), and many of the skits you find throughout the game are light-hearted.

I'm incredibly lazy when it comes to cooking, so I just cook enough simple, healthy stuff to last me 3-5 meals. Like, lasagne with lots of veggies has a relatively short prep time, allowing me to make four portions in 20 minutes. Okay, I'll have to keep an eye on the oven, but that's not exactly work and it's only on the first day. What else... Soup. Soup's great. And I'm fond of pasta, because it's so easy to make a large batch of the sauce and freeze some for later. And if I don't feel like eating tomato sauce, there's always spinach.

Actually, I don't mind cooking all that much. It's the clean-up that gets to me.

I usually just get a cup of tea if I'm craving something. I have like 50 different flavours in my cupboard and something is bound to match what I feel like eating.

I did gain a few pounds the past few years, though. I blame my parents. My mom thinks she needs to buy me things, so whenever things like muffins are on sale (nearly every week), she buys me some. I eat them out of politeness.

Sins of the Demon - Final Report

... That was unexpectantly tragic... I mean, the ending is technically a good one, but the game didn't bother to pull punches and I respect that.

Why did they have to Aeris the cat? I loved that cat! D:

Oh, and some advice for anyone planning on playing this: make lots of pork buns and feed them to Kenshi. You'll thank me later.

I paid: €0,24
I played: 10 hours
Worth the wait?: Wow, €0,99 feels on the cheap side for a RPG Maker game this solid and I got it on sale! I feel kind of bad now... The first half of the game feels like a typical adventure in which you explore an island while hunting demons, but the second part is surprisingly story heavy and includes three long, interactive flashbacks. The twists weren't all that original, but they were executed well enough (compared to the newest installment of a certain SRPG series anyway...).

Edit: I'm up for some new numbers, by the way. I want to know what I can look forward to.

Sure, no problem :)

Sins of the Demon - report 2
I think I'm close to the final third of the game. Most of the map has been explored and I've mostly been visiting old locations the past few hours, with some revealing flashbacks to spice things up. It's surprising how much I like some of the characters, most RPG Maker games don't exactly excel when it comes to characterisation. The cat is probably my favourite.

Who says it was my idea to place the torch? The group decided, we decided wrong and I fought as hard as I could, but in the end, it didn't matter, nothing mattered. We all failed... ;_;
73  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: August 22, 2016, 03:25:01 AM
... Maybe I should have warned you about tentacles and torches...

Maybe you could bring me back as Maria (my middle name)? If you happen to find an arbalest in your stage coach, that'd be great. Arbalest Maria and Bounty Hunter Klyde could make a great team.

Sins of the Demon - Report 1
The 'cover' of this game is pretty misleading. While the big titted anime girl is an enemy found in the game, the actual game looks more like this:

I'm an hour in and it's looking really promising. There's a simple but fast-paced ATB combat system and I'm enjoying the banter between the two main characters. One of them is a sarcastic talking cat and that's an instant win in my book. There are even Tales-style skits to be found.

I only read the English edition so I'm half a dozen volumes behind, but I'm sad to stay I'm not surprised he piled on some more bullshit. Kubo is zo preoccupied with revealing twists and introducing new characters, he tends to forget about important stuff he's already written. Like, Chad was supposed to be a central character in the Fullbringer arc? I literally can't remember him doing anything important aside from existing, which is, now that I think about it, pretty significant, as Kubo often forgets he exists, so... yeah.

How does Fairy Taill's Guild system align with actual guilds, if at all?

(Guessing perhaps not much)

I'm nor very familiar with Fairy Tail, so I can't say, sorry.
