Lost Song Reminded Me of Lunar

I stumbled across this promotional image and was strongly reminded of artwork for Silver Star Harmony. https://static.next-episode.net/tv-shows-images/huge/lost-song.jpg I watched a bit of it, and that planet in the sky? It appears in backgrounds in the show for some fantasy flair (to the best of my...

Re: Childhood's End

I really like this. I don't know if a folk-art vibe was what you were going for, but it grabbed my attention. Xenobia is extra-busty here, isn't she? :mrgreen:

Re: My Lunar Ocarina (WIP)

That looks great! A lot about the design in the animations is pretty nonstandard, I'm sure - my (limited) understanding is that the general instrument shape can vary a lot, but triangle holes just sounds like a being weird for its own sake. :D

I hope you'll keep us apprised of your progress!

Re: What Anime do you like

I used to be obsessed with anime growing up, but i slowly started to lose my interest because of the amount of unneeded fan service. There were other reasons as well, but now i only watch a small select few when I am in the mood...As for sitting down and checking out new animes...Sadly my spark is ...

Re: If you are struggling with the Gynephobia and Pure Odio bosses in Live-A-Live I have a solution

Thanks for the tips! I did a test run against the final boss, died, did some grinding in the character dungeons...and then never went back for a rematch. This is a unique and noteworthy game and I really should see it through to the end. Which chapter did you like best? I have to give a lot of props...

I have a hunch that some of this is a form of actor allusion. Do you direct Mamma Mia if you aren't, in fact, interested in ABBA?

Well maybe you do, but this fills me with joy anyway.

Re: Four heros

I'm looking over the beginning of my notes on SSSC (a 236-page document and I think it only goes up to, like, Lann) and found the quote of Alex's father about going with Dyne: Wow, supposing that is about 1/8 of the game content, if your notes were published it would take multiple volumes.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I finished the Revolutionary Girl Utena Sega Saturn game. For a game based on an anime, it was really good, had a lot of feel good and funny moments. It even goes into messing-with-your-mind territory near the end, and gives some backstory for the Black Rose arc not seen in the anime. Creator Kunih...

Re: An anomaly in the Lunar series

Hey, some of that is familiar after going through those short stories Hosoe wrote around the same time those novelizations were published. Her take on Fake Althena is particularly sympathetic. I translated a couple of her shorts in 2009 -- how the time flies. http://lunarthreads.com/viewtopic.php?f=...

Re: Questions regarding the series

So what I'm gathering is that there is currently no known definitive answer, but it is most likely a combination of something legal and because the music of TSS overall doesn't match the tone of SSS. (Playing the second overworld theme from TSS over footage of SSS's world map definitely makes this ...

Re: Hajime Sato's Storyboards

Hey, I was doing some research on Sato recently! His work for Lunar is so imaginative and every so often I wonder what he's been up to. Following his career is a bit tricky; a lot of Japanese people have the name Hajime Sato. Sato worked on another Game Arts game, Alisia Dragoon, before working on L...

Agreed.

But what if I told you that my Lunar 1 canon of choice is the novelizations, in which Kyle is a pirate captain with his own Dragonship?

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Live A Live!

I wish I had played this game sooner, and I wish there were more games like it. I read that old-timers in Japan think of it as the predecessor to Chrono Trigger, and it does have the same sort of thematic everything-and-the-kitchen-sink vibe.

Re: Blind witches

Yeah, the video compression was not up to the challenge that this particular cutscene posed. Most of the other videos are easier to make out than this, but as a stylistic choice, reducing facial features in situations like these to conserve detail is a pretty reasonable move for an animator.

Re: What is Canon?

That is a difficult question for this franchise, since the creators have shown little interest in endorsing remakes over originals or vise-versa. I suppose one could operate on the assumption that the creators favor the remakes. It's all canon -- especially when two versions contradict each other. D...

Re: Saturn translation [in progress!]

It's pretty wild to see the logos for all the firms that made SSS followed up by Sonic. I assume video that sharp is too big to use -- kind of a shame.
