  1. Reading Ginharu Very Slowly #3

    I don't like the stereotypical soups either, but a good pea soup or goulash is always welcome
  2. According to a program I made, I've played 20 hours of Ginharu as of the end of this post, so I decided to see how far in I am. I timed how long it takes to ctrl from the start to where I am, and then how long it takes to ctrl from where I am to where the OP movie plays, and it seems I only need to play about 15 more hours until the prologue (dunno if you can really call it that in this case, but whatever) ends. Hurray for terrible terrible reading speed! Quite a bit happened since we last left off, Hina spent all day hanging out at our place with Yuzuki The two of them then went up to her room, and when Yukito came to bring them tea Once that misunderstanding is out of the way, Yukito retreats to his room to read some shounen manga in peace and quiet, when The next day after class, Hina invited Yuzuki over to her place (Yukito was invited too, but he dodged it by saying boys of his age shouldn't be going to girls' houses), and his parents were at work so he went to a restaurant, and unexpectedly met Mizu-nee Over the next few days we meet Momo-chan-sensei, a new student teacher who happens to have been a student of Yukito's mother, and after the two of them got drunk at his mom's restaurant with Yukito still present, and Momo-chan-sensei having forced him to sleep in the same futon with her, he promises not to tell anyone in return for her letting him decided what extracurricular activity she is going to hold. He decides to have her hold a "One-room classroom", essentially a class where students from different grades could all be equal regardless of being a senpai/kouhai, an idea he got from one of his first conversations with Hina. Once the extracurricular activity is decided, Yukito makes a pamphlet to advertise it, and Yuzuki suggests he draw a snowman. The next day he shows the pamphlet to his classmates This however leads to a conversation where we find out that Bethly is really good at drawing, and she proceeds to draw a much better snowman, and it's all thanks to her mother who is a somewhat famous artist Over the course of the day Yukito invites all of the girls to this One-room classroom, and they mostly say they'll think about it This all happens right before golden week, so we then cut to each of the girls in turn thinking about going... aside from Bethly, who pretty much just thinks about her mom, but can you blame her? Once golden week is over, Bethly doesn't come to school for a few days, turns out she's sick. Naturally, Yukito and Yuzuki go to visit her and bring her the handouts, but she's asleep when they get there, so they talk to her father, Brian, instead. He only speaks English, but because the devs were lazy all the English conversations are in Japanese and it's simply implied that they're speaking English. After a short conversation, Yukito invites Brian to his mom's cafe, saying they have great pancakes He accepts, and they have a nice long conversation at the cafe thanks to Yukito's mom Maria being able to speak English rather well, due to the fact that she traveled a lot back when she performed. We learn that Brian is a pilot, and that they moved to Japan because after Bethly's mom died of sickness around the same time last year, he wasn't making enough money, so the moved to somewhere where airline pilots are paid more. He really enjoys the pancakes, Maria insists he take some back home to Bethly, and Yukito decides he wants to try drawing a snowman again... That's all for now~
  3. I decided that in order to keep track of what I've read, I'm going to write short summaries of what happened in Ginharu. I figured I might as well post them here, someone might find them interesting, and others might flame me for reading SoL garbage. Since I'm a Japanese noob, the reading will be very slow and probably very inaccurate, but it's better than waiting for the TL (ETA 50,000 years). I've read a little bit before today, so here's all that basically happened: Protag's step-mom takes an amazing photo of Yukito and his step-sister Yuzuki They then walk to school together, but rather than not be late Yukito drops his sister off and goes to visit his actual mom at his grandma's coffee shop Then upon being sent to some classroom or another for being late we meet the Canadian transfer student Bethly They can barely understand each other, but eventually Yukito turns the heating on and gets her a chemical heating pad from the infirmary, and he has to explain how it works... to someone from Canada... Upon reaching their actual classroom and giving introductions we meet the person we're sitting next to, Momiji We have a few awkward conversations with Bethly School is over and we go to meet our senpai ice-skating nearly-champion who just came back, Mizuha Last but not least, we meet the super-genki Aoi, Yuzuki's classmate who already became her friend The three of them then go visit Yukito's mom again, and Aoi basically tells her that she was right to get a divorce to follow her dream of becoming a super violinist And that's basically everything that's happened so far, to the best of my (poor) knowledge, time to go read more!
  4. Fate/Grand Order

    I honestly like Abigail more than Jalter (not that I ever got Jalter, but still >.>) Her buffs might not be as absurd, but in terms of being a generalist Foreginer is better than Avenger. Avenger still gets beat up by Berserkers and a random crit from one can really take a chunk out of you, but Foreigners are only weak to Alter-Egos and Foreigners, and how often do you fight those? So she might not be the be-all end-all for Merlin crit memes, but you can frontline her in every single battle and almost never regret it.
  5. Fate/Grand Order

    Demerits usually mean that without them the skills are so good they need to be nerfed, and that certainly applies to a lot of the summer servants
  6. Fate/Grand Order

    Rolled summer girls, protecced summer girls, now sleep
  7. What are you playing?

    Now it's time for you to either move forward in time and read Planetarian (this one is really short and good) and Rewrite, or if you're really ballsy, move backward in time and read One
  8. Fate/Grand Order

    Thank god for 1/2 AP and using a bot and emulator, farmed over half a billion QP and all the blue gems I needed to get all my servants to 4/4/4. Also earned a bunch of bond points and goes Moedred and Hokusai to max bond
  9. Someday we'll get to read HF and get more of her voice... someday...
  10. Fate/Grand Order

    Treat him well and he'll carry you through everything He is the strongest in the world, after all
  11. Fate/Grand Order

    I also did a thing Oh, and also Banana max bond
  12. 10 reasons real life is like terrible kusoge

    Just add 3 more and you'll have the real 13 Reasons Why
  13. Fate/Grand Order

    Got my thousand days today Also smiles from this event's gacha protected
  14. Fate/Grand Order

    Yeah, you should. It's hard enough to do quests if you bring a class that's weak to the enemy even when your servants are maxed out. If you bring an Assassin against a Caster instead of a Rider you'll be doing 4x less damage and taking 4x more, so it's basically 16x harder. Although there's some classes here that NA doesn't have yet
  15. Fate/Grand Order

    Yeah, this is a fairly high-effort money snatch.
  16. Fate/Grand Order

    Also don't use apples until your AP pool is at least 100 or so, otherwise it's just wasteful. The best value for your money would be only buying quartz for the roughly bi-annual guaranteed 5* gacha, in which you're, well, guaranteed to get one 5*. And most servants are roughly equal in power. You should roll for servants that you like instead of holding out for some powerful servant you don't particularly like. Oh, and this site is great http://fate-go.cirnopedia.org/master_mission_us.php#nav Edit: You can only use paid quartz for the guaranteed 5* gacha btw
  17. Fuwanovel Confessions

    It was disabled when it became obvious that a mere bot could not replicate my level of repetitive greetings.
  18. Fate/Grand Order

    Please don't make it sound like it's Koreans as a whole lol Eh, she's cute and I'll throw some tickets at her, maybe do a 10-roll, but other than that I'm saving for Tamassassin (or something cute in new summer)
  19. Fate/Grand Order

    Leader doesn't do anything. I think before some update you had to have your own servant in the leader position, rather than a support, but at least on JP that's no longer the case.
  20. Fate/Grand Order

    The only time you should consider spending money is when there's a guaranteed 5* gacha because, well, you're guaranteed to get a 5*.
  21. Fate/Grand Order

    Back when Rashoumon first arrived in JP, I got all of the damage rewards and the only time I spent money was on the guaranteed 5* gacha. I wasn't technically F2P, but you definitely don't need 11 SSRs at NP5. Sure, you need to put in a bit more effort, but that's true for basically all of the higher level content. The only thing I've seen in the game so far that you could call P2W is the original Nero challenge in the upcoming Nerofest for NA.
  22. John Bain AKA Total Biscuit has passed.

    For once it's a celebrity that I've actually heard of... and that only makes it worse RIP TB, the world has become a slightly shittier place today
