  1. Fall 2018 Anime Discussion

    Regarding Golden Kamuy I'd say it's really good so far. I've only read 3 volumes of the manga and the only noticeable change was a slight one to Sugimoto's motivation, it hasn't changed but the relation towards the person he's trying to help is kept vague (at least for now). As for the animation, I think it's fine, the only exception being the hilariously bad CGI bears in the early episodes.
  2. Fall 2018 Anime Discussion

    Took a look at the second season of Golden Kamuy and that was a fantastic season opener with Tsurumi's new friend Edogai and their combined shenanigans. Also the plot reveals that followed were interesting too, but man those two were show stealers for this episode. Next took a look at UzaMaid, which got a fair share of laughs for how over the top silly it was. Then I checked out Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san which had a nice mix of cute and funny, I especially like the JoJo reference with the strength demonstration
  3. Fall 2018 Anime Discussion

    Been enjoying "Reincarnated as a Slime", both episodes have been fun to watch and its main character and dragon BFF (who I hope shows up more) are likable. Also the concept of Rimuru getting powers from what he absorbs kind of makes me see him as Mr Buu done right as a good guy. As for Goblin Slayer...I admit I'm of mixed feeling towards it. I did like the initial set up for the episode where it was basically the worst D&D campaign, but when it came to the payoff...I get the sneaking suspicion I saw the edited version since I couldn't help but feel like I'd seen better in H manga and eroge (and I hear the manga and LN are more explicit). I'll check out the second episode to see what more there is to offer with the titular character now that he's been introduced. Another I've been enjoying is JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo, and seeing the "Taste of a liar" scene brought to life :
  4. Thanks for the info, though are time limits a thing in VBF? Like if I don't conquer a kingdom within x number of turns I die or is this like in Sengoku Rance where if I don't conquer a place within a certain number of turns one of the other demon heirs is going to show up and conquer it (and its ruling heroine) instead? I'm asking since I generally don't like time limits in games like this (thanks to that in SR, I ignored the dungeon crawling aspect of the game completely and got a very nasty and unbeatable surprise when the canon story's finale started).
  5. Finished playing the demo and if it's anything to go by then this game looks to be a fun play. About my only complaint is the demo would crash from time to time and it has a pretty random ending; I assumed it would end when I captured the capital city but it didn't and instead just ended after I captured that lake territory by it without even a closing scene.
  6. Currently playing the demo right now, liking the premise so far even though I haven't gotten to any fights yet. One question, anyone else here imagining Tom Hiddleston's voice for Loki? XD
  7. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    Well, I've gotten to the point of all the party members joining in DQXI and from what I've played so far I really like it. The story's good, the visuals are great and the voice acting's really good. Looks like the next part involves a mcguffin hunt for 7 6 magical orbs, that sure seems familiar...
  8. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    Got to a good enough stopping point in Utawarerumono 2 to put it on hold in favor of Dragon Quest XI
  9. What are you playing?

    Now that I've finished Nier Automata I'll be using my PS4 to play Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, which I am enjoying, especially as more connections to the first game are showing up. Still, as I play further I can't help but wonder why Kuon isn't the main character instead of Haku. Considering who she is and the fact that the game pretty much makes it clear she's a badass and fairly intelligent that at least on paper sounds like a better protag choice than "Amnesiac guy who's kinda like Hakuoro except not as competent".
  10. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    Got the last main ending for Nier Automata and I have to say the game was a really good experience. I enjoyed the characters and their arcs over each playthrough from A2's development over the course of a surprisingly short arc (though I do wish her backstory was better integrated into the main plot) to 9S' tragic path . One thing I really loved though was the game's soundtrack, p robably the best I've heard from a Square game since the PS1 days. Admittedly the game has some flaws, though most are in the mechanical department be it the virus stage or the platforming sections which are thankfully mostly in side content. Now there's only one thing left do...check out some 2B douji-err...check out some articles explaining the deeper themes about the game
  11. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    Been playing Nier Automata again and played up to what's considered Part 2 of the story and I liked the darker direction it went, I'm both glad and sad at having done that flower sidequest . Unfortunately I got to the part where 2B gets infected with a virus which makes getting from point A to point B within the time limit impossible. I understand limiting my movement helps sell 2B being vulnerable, but taking away the ability to jump at all makes reaching wherever it is I'm supposed to go difficult to say the least considering I'm in a pit and the only way up is to get over uneven ground that has to be jumped over. And this is all while trying to get past an onrush of enemies that you can't really fight against except for the pod.
  12. I will third the Trails in the Sky trilogy, it's that good and can be run on just about anything (I wonder if anyone could get it to work on a VIC-20). Would also recommend Baldur's Gate (still need to get around to playing 2), but with at the very least these mods to make the recruitable characters more interesting: https://github.com/Gibberlings3/BG1NPC/releases https://github.com/AstroBryGuy/bg1ub/releases plus this is the only extra NPC mod I'd recommend for it: https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/42721/npc-mod-sirene-npc-for-bg-ee-v1-1/p1
  13. What are you playing?

    Been playing some of Trample on Schatten! and I can say it's been entertaining so far, especially the over the top action and dialogue. Also been playing Kamidori and currently at chapter 2 where I've met the foxes and the angel who I now dub FemZamasu
  14. Fate/Grand Order

    On the english end I've beaten the story for the summer event, and currently just grinding for ascension material, also rolled Summer Marie and Martha, and as a bonus got spooked by Jeanne. Unfortunately I'm now out of quartz, and I'm debating whether or not to buy some (which I haven't done for months) to try for Archuria
  15. Mangagamer Otakon 2018 Announcement

    The announcements look okay, my thoughts with each: 1) The Expression Amrilato It at least looks good and the concept is interesting, though the fact that it's all ages and the alternate world doesn't look that different from ours means it won't be high on my to play list. 2) Fxxx Me Royally! Looks and sounds funny, definitely looking forward to this. 3) Byakko The rocket designing part has me interested and I'll give this a look eventually, though I can't help but wonder is there any eroge where the protagonist joins a club and it isn't in danger of closing? 4) Beat Angel Escaslayer R Looks good enough and I did like Beat Blades Haruka, so if it's anything like that it'll at least be entertaining
  16. Fate/Grand Order

    Been playing the summer event, gotten Lancers Kiyohime and Tamamo in the draws hoping I get Archer Arturia. Really been enjoying the story, though I did not expect part 2 to remind me of Red Dwarf ...which I guess makes Marie Lister
  17. Why do you prefer 2D ecchiness?

    While there are some live action porn I like, I prefer 2D because it generally looks better be it from an aesthetic perspective (aka don't have to worry about one of the actors having a genital wart) or action perspective as the sex can be better shown in terms of good angles, be better paced (some JAV I've seen are surprisingly slow) and above all more things can be done in 2D than live action.
  18. Mangagamer Otakon 2018 Announcement

    The new partner could be Lune considering the interest they showed at people wanting "Tsukebe Elf" and MG's vanilla elf hint, though the latter could have been a hint at KF2 which has been announced. If so I'd be fine with that since they have a nice library and since they now own the Kansen series there's now a chance at seeing the series in english. As for the other announcements, I can't really make a guess on the otome front and the Moonstone guesses people are making based on the "sakura" hint are sound enough, though another possibility could be Da Capo 3 With You or Platinum Partner (or maybe DC2 Dearest Marriage though I consider that unlikely). The last one is probably going to be nukige (even if I really wish it were a Koihime game). My guess/hope would be for either one of ClockUp's lighter ones like Ero Manga! or Ero Goods! or one of Waffle's like the Maki-chan/Now series
  19. I'm looking for a harem visual novel

    Funbag/Kyonyuu Fantasy https://www.mangagamer.com/detail.php?goods_type=0&product_code=183 and its sequel https://www.mangagamer.com/detail.php?goods_type=0&product_code=1047
  20. What are you playing?

    Still making my way through Rea's route in Dies Irae and I am liking the direction it's going in for Rea and how it seems to be going in a different direction with Trifa and Lisa than the other routes. Though if I had a complaint...
  21. Summer 2018 Anime Discussion

    When watching Chio's School Road did anyone else think "Assassin's Creed has a fanbase in Japan?"
  22. Summer 2018 Anime Discussion

    I've so far checked out five of the summer premieres: How Not to Summon a Demon Lord: Overall it's good enough so far (only watched the first episode). It's nothing outstanding, but the jokes are funny enough and the fanservice is good enough...though I can't help but feel I'd be enjoying this more if this were an eroge since then it wouldn't have to hold back on the harem and H stuff at all. Angels of Death Only watched the first episode. This one's just okay; the mystery around the girl and the place she's trapped in has me curious, but other than that I'm not all that impressed so far. The twist with the doctor was obvious from the get go and admittedly the guy with the scythe looks more silly than scary. Harukana Receive It looks nice, but admittedly the sports aspect isn't really appealing to me that much. The moment the anime started hinting one of the girls used to play volleyball but doesn't anymore the first thing that popped into my head was "Okay, who died?" and sure enough at the end of the episode... Also I get the main appeal for this anime, in fact it reminds me of this little sum up of the main reason people watched Baywatch: Cells at Work Watched episode 1 and 2. This may be the best of the bunch as I'm liking the wackiness of this show be it the character antics, how something mundane like a cut is portrayed as affecting the characters, or how the villains of episode 2 get beaten. Angolmois Watched the first episode and I liked what I saw. The premise and main cast is interesting, the animation's nice, and I really like the opening (gives me an old samurai film feel, though considering that and the historical event this is centered around I'll be surprised if any characters survive at the end of this).
  23. Harem Party Review

    Here's my review of Harem Party: http://gamesforadultsandeveryone.blogspot.com/2015/06/games-for-adults-harem-party.html
  24. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    Got ending A for Nier Automata, pretty much an okay ending though my only real complaint is Adam and Eve, they just weren't around enough for me to get all that invested in them as villains. Maybe the other endings will do that better. Still, before that I've started on the Persona 5 crossover event in Granblue Fantasy and enjoying it so far. The crossover character interactions are nice though a certain scene at the end of the first chapter kind of has me wishing the Persona 4 cast was here too.
