Considering when I looked at my current queue with Re:ZERO (which I refuse to watch at this point)



gigguk's RE: Zero in 8 minutes is arguably his finest work

I personally don't know what to think about Re: Zero. Its like they have 3-4 atrocious episodes in a row and then they hit you with either a great great cliffhanger or a great episode.

Woo! Doing a quick search in this thread for Konosuba reveals that it isn't the utter shite that is most of the anime that piques my interest before I know anything about it. Might check it out since the character designs keep garnering my attention (especially the witch character with the kooky hat, obvs)

The 1st season was just fantastic. The 2nd is decent but is starting to lose some momentum. The problem in the second season is that the trolling seemed a bit more mean spirited.

Despite the twist I did like SO3 better than SO2.

Is it me or is SO3 that last good game that Tri-ace published? I couldn't get into Resonance of Fate and haven't played Valkyria Profile 2.

tooting my own horn...

If Christian theology is interesting to you, even if you don't subscribe to said religion (i.e. -- issues of grace, of what makes "choice" and "autonomy" real things) -- you may appreciate this piece I wrote for gamechurch.com on NieR Automata

With all the Orbs that keep coming from all these Quests and Events, I've decided to pull again. Got another 5 star, this time its Rave-wait, fuck! I already have a 5 star Raven (I guess he's gonna be Level 40+1 now), also pulled a 4 star Lissa (so much for raising one of the freebies), a 4 star Female Corrin (another repeat of a trained freebie, at least this one gives me 4 Manaketes now, bring it April), and a 3 star Shanna and Peri ("Yay! Violence!", also two that I didn't have, after this "I better watch for arrows.").

Still no Focus Units or a fourth Armor. So fucking close, yet so far away.

Also, something, something, finished Story Mode on Lunatic, something (I may have used a Light's Blessing, but screw it, I got like 4 Quests done on that one charge and some levels for my Tenth Stratum Flier team (which is up to 5/15 victories now)).

God damn it, I've run through all the characters I have that I want to train...so not I'm training Chrom (aka discount Lucina) and Merric (aka discount Julia). It will be nice to have something I want to train with Minerva (hopefully) tomorrow. Wouldn't complain about an extra Eliwood with a better bane/boon either. It will be interesting to see what I get.

I'm expecting one two of them will be a five star because that's how things work.

Ah, the Ranadiel strategy.  I like it.  It'll pay off one of these days!
Disclaimer: The Ranadiel strategy may not be for you. Side effects may include running out of character storage space, a craving for whole milk, and suddenly becoming a whale. If you accidently release Eldridge Horrors by breaking causality while employing the Ranadiel strategy, scream bloody murder as this may be a sign of the end of the world. It won't help, but it will make you feel better in the seconds before you go mad. Consult your doctor to determine if the Ranadiel strategy is right for you. *soothing music plays*

Ok, it WAS the Carnelia series I was thinking about.  Although I don't think it says the word "Grailsritter" in it, Sister Carnelia is clearly one.  A few Google searches tells me that I am right (although I feel like I was slightly spoiled on one small aspect of that story).

Time to read Gambler Jack, though!  I got almost all of the books, but since I somehow missed Volume 4, I just stopped reading at that point.
Yeah I was aware she was one, which is why I said I could see it coming up in there, but was trying to avoid spoilers there.

And Gambler Jack is great. There is actually a sequel to it in Cold Steel 2. I can't wait for us to inevitably come across Gambler Jack's inspiration during the eventual Calvard arc. Although really all the books are great.

That is a beautiful monstrosity, @Tomara

It is, isn't it? I thought about it some more, and now I'm certainly I want to donate this to that charity auction thing at the anime convention I like. Tegendraads will not be defeated by cupcakes again!

(There were awesome cupcakes though, just like the people who made them, so not hard feelings. Just... competitive feelings. But that's all good, cuz charity.)

I guess I subconsciously expected more Setsunas and Firs and got exactly that... Man, this game is tough.

BTW my number of Setsuna's is currently sitting at 7. Also: 5 Cecilias, 9 Sophias, 4 Stahls, 4 Donnels, 4 Firs 6 or 7 Virions (I lost track), 5 Pallas... and I think that's the worst of them.

BTW 2 a round of applause for my Tharja! She defeated her first L40 Hector today. It was a close one (she was only L26 at the time), but she did a good job.

After somewhere between 10 and 20 hours with the game, I can definitively say that the greatest accomplishment this game has going for it is its ability to make me love it JUST as I've had about enough of its shit.

And it has a lot of shit. The game could be a case study in "just because you can doesn't mean you should"
