Well, with a 6 character limit for names, yours didn't fit =/
Curses! Foiled by character limits! Well played FF6 programmers. Well played indeed. I can't use my semi-standard abbreviation of Randiel either. I guess I do use Ran on occasion....Wait a sec, I just slightly increased the odds of me being Gogo. I did not think this through. :p

Well, quite a few mentions of it are made in classic Who, though they make it out to be a very final number, and not by choice. The Doctor's mentor (who eventually turns bad for some reason), claims he is on his last regeneration. But yeah, there is the weirdness of the "skeletor" Master, who is described as being on his last regeneration, and for the reason, looks like a rotting corpse... never really explained why he is different. Then there is the Valyard.

Anyway, if Moffat is counting Smith as Regeneration 13, then he's already broken the rules without us even realizing it. Either Moffat is content to just blow the limit off (which I'm just fine with), or it'll need to be explained in the next 3 days as to why it happened, and what's going on. I'm banking on grateful timelords offering The Doctor a full new cycle.

Anyway, looking forward to the big Matt Smith sendoff. It's been fun!
I think the thing with "skeletor" Master was supposed to be that he hit regeneration 13, then kept aging and aging, and that is just what an extremely old time lord looks like. Either that or he was short changed and only got 11.5 regenerations instead of 12 and what he became is a half finished regeneration.

And I believe that the idea that is being thrown around isn't that Smith is Regeneration 13, but Doctor "13". So the Doctor after he has regenerated 12 times.

Barely watched any new anime this year, so I will be doing my list for manga instead of anime.

Manga of the Year: One Piece! Totally should not be a surprise. It has been amping things up all year and we are now on the eve of a freaking epic war.Even going into the new year it is still going on all cylinders. All hail the king of manga, Oda! He is truly Odaweomse!

Runner-Up: Magi. Absolutely great manga(anime is less good). It has had a great year as well with one of the most epic finishes for a battle ever. I think the series is great and will continue to be great. So glad this is getting an official release(not t just wait for an official release of the Adventures of Sinbad).

(Honorable mentions, World Trigger for being the best new manga of the year, which is setting itself up to quite possibly being a long running series, and The World God Only Knows for having a great arc, even if it is below the top two)

Biggest Surprise: Bleach! I still hate Bleach. It is a waste of space and it has become a convoluted mess that I don't care about at all. So why is it my biggest surprise? Because of Mask de Masuline. He is an amazing character. I love him, and I didn't think I could ever care about anything going on in Bleach ever again. I know that he will die in one or two weeks since he is going to be fodder to show how Renji has improved.....but I don't care. Go Mask de Masculine, hear the cheers of your fans and WWWIIIIIINNNNN!!!!

Biggest Disappointment: Huh this is going to be hard. One hand there was Jasco which wasn't that good, but I wasn't expecting much from at any point. Then there is Naruto which has just completely fallen and is just uninteresting, but I think that it might have been that way at the beginning of the year and I really don't want to double check on where Naruto was at the beginning of the year by rereading any chapters. So I guess I'll go with Seraph of the End because I had no idea of what to expect going in, and I ended up with a crappy battle series that has a tsundere main character that I hate. The sooner this thing gets cancelled the better.

Well I was vaguely hoping that I was going to somehow be Cyan. Now that I am not, I dread I am either not in the game....or I am Gogo. I'm not sure which would be worse. :p

Something was just brought to my attention regarding 731:

Code:
The girl with the revolutionaries and who is the assistant master of Fishman karate is Koala aka the girl returned to her village by Fisher Tiger right before his death. I just skipped over her name during my first few read throughs until a podcast I listen to pointed it out. That is an amazing detail that makes so much sense, as she has very good reasons to both be in the revolutionaries and to learn a form of combat that is uncommon for humans. I love it and look forward to seeing where things go from here with her. incidentally, we now have four+ characters/groups of characters that we need Flashbacks from. Traffy, Donflamingo(possibly combined with Traffy), Sabo, Koala, and Toy Soldier pre-being turned into a toy.

Speaking of reveals and foreshadowing...

The World God Only Knows
Chapter 254

MEGATON reveal

I'd never have seen THAT coming o_O !!!
Worst is, it makes complete sense.
If you are talking about the reveal that I think you are talking about, I thought it was pretty obvious something like two chapters ago. Basically whatever chapter it was that the person in the past put on the choker. Then again I had seen speculation a long time ago regarding that choker, so it might have just been red flagged in my brain.

I also like what it signifies

Code:
The revolutionaries have joined the fray. It has turned into a four way battle with the straw hats at the centre of it. Wonder if Robin knew that Sabo and Luffy know each other.

Also, looks like Caribou's story has finally concluded. I actually really enjoyed it. Probably my favourite cover story so far.

Code:
I love four way battles in fiction. However it seems that the various factions have one of two goals at the moment, and I don't see much reason for any of them to change positions. At least not until the toys revert, at which point there is no telling what the Marines will do. On one hand this should be enough to strip Donflamingo of his title. On the other he is a Celestial Dragon....or at least was, so I'm not sure what if anything they can really do to him. No idea on whether Robin knew about Sabo knowing Luffy. My instinct is that she probably had some inclination about it (as I cannot imagine Sabo not talking with Robin aka one of his brother's friends at some point), but she probably is unaware of the exact nature of their relationship.

On a different note, I noticed that the character introduced at the end was the Assistant Master of Fishman Karate for the Revolutionaries. I remember that there was a Fishman Karate user in the tournament who secretly spoke to someone via Den Den Mushi in the pit. Connected? Probably.

Been playing Mega Man X since I got it on the eshop for 2 dollars. 6 bosses down 2 more to go.

I read the spoiler for 730 and it was something I honestly expected to happen at some point.

I should not have read that spoiler, though. Holy crap! Worst part is, that's too awesome for me to forget. :P

Aww that is a shame. Because while what I posted is awesome, the true awesomeness is done by the way it is presented. It is told to us without being outright stated through Luffy's reactions, some dialogue, and some images at the end of the chapter.

So One Piece 731:

Code:
Wow that was amazing. Oda is the master of the slow build. I'm not going to say that this development is a shock to me as I have been expecting Sabo to be the one to "inherit Ace's will" since Whitebeard's speech about how the will of D has been passed on through the generations. At least at one point I was expecting him to get the Falme-Flame fruit after we saw it as the prize, but I was expecting him to steal it when I was considering that possibility. Having him become Lucy was a great decision. I now look forward to him winning the tournament and proudly proclaiming as he is about to eat the fruit that he is Sabo D. Portgas, announcing that he has inherited Ace's will.

Sadly I don't really expect anyone to read that since very few people here keep up with the manga as far as I can tell.

I feel it is necessary to bring up that they have actually made some progress in better managing the Kickstarter. They have managed to make the Deluxe edition more worth it than it was before. They have made the stretch goals a little more transparent. incidentally, they have stated that the game is expected to retail for 80 (which seems way too expensive to me), so if you are at all interested in it, might as well Kickstarter the project so that you can get the Protoman game piece also for MSRP. Looking forward to the Roll character piece stretch goal, and Cutman upgrade shortly afterwards.

Just saw the original Terminator for the first time.
High five! I just saw it last week.....or at least I think it was last week (days are sort of merging thanks to crunch time at work ugh).

Saki Zenkoku-hen
Show of the season. No debate.
As someone who has no idea what is going to be in the season, any particular reason why?

EDIT: So I never mentioned here that I was watching Magi. I'm halfway through the first season, and I really like it. It's good stuff. Got some problems here and there, but otherwise I can't complain. Granted, I haven't read the manga yet, but hopefully that'll make this easier to enjoy.
Ugh. In my experience, reading the manga makes the anime worse for Magi. Basically I am a big fan of the manga, so I watched the anime. There were changes made in the anime, most of which I was perfectly okay with or were too minor to care about. Fast forward to the second to last episode of season 1 where they make an incredibly giant change. A change which imo shows did not understand one of the main characters at all. And I did  not bother watching any of it afterwards because of that. But w/e, I've got a localization of the Magi manga now so I dunno need no stinking anime!
674  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: New Mega Man Game!.....Well Board Game on: December 14, 2013, 07:38:55 AM
Yeah....so this company is horrible at Kickstartering. Based on what they have said so far in the comments section, it appears that currently the only exclusive to the Kickstarter is the art print (and gold bordered cards if you are insane). I highly doubt that the current prices for the tiers are cheaper than the game will be at launch, so I am currently struggling to understand why I should keep my current pledge level and not just drop down to the press start level.

Link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1821440755/mega-mantm-the-board-game

I wonder if each subsequent Megaman game will be an expansion....haha.
They've said they want to do something like that, but that they currently only have rights to MM1 so they can't do them as stretch goals or anything with the current Kickstarter.
675  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ys on: December 14, 2013, 07:20:17 AM

Given how unconventional the name is as a title for...well, anything, I agree with this.
The game's name is never really pronounced through voice over work either, unless you see the japanese characters that demonstrate it's "yeez" over "wise".


If I'm not mistaken, didn't the manual of the first north-american release of Ys mentionned it was pronunced "eece" as in the word "fleece"? It also seems confirmed by the the original writing イース or iisu, which does use a hard "s" pronunciation over a softer "z", so I guess both yeez or wise would be wrong. And since it's in katakana, we can consider that it is only the closest way possible to render the intended pronunciation in Japanese. Hence I think that we can consider "eece" as the official pronunciation, or either way the closest one we can have in English, especially since it was in an official release and that the japanese pronunciation seems to confirm it.
The name Ys is based on a legendary French city that was supposedly lost in the ocean. According to Wikipedia, the proper pronunciation of that city's name is EESS, which I think is the same as what you are saying.
