I'm glad you like it! Yeah Barua fanart is almost nonexistent, hence why I gave her a cameo.

Re: Sakura Taisen for Saturn English patch

I played up till the first save point (which is too far in for my tastes), honestly I don't think it's worth the hype. I thought it was more of an SRPG, but it feels like a dating VN, where many of the dialogue options seem to be prompts where choices earn/lose affection with various heroines. The o...

Star Wars IX (spoilers)

I remember there being quite a lively discussion about Star Wars VIII when it came out, so how about Star Wars IX the Rise of Skywalker?... I was really disappointed to be honest. One opening scene in the beginning where they were randomly warping and resting ad naseum to avoid Imperial forces was s...

Taiwan's Tsai Ing-Wen Reelected

Re: Last Anime?

I just watched Drifters. It has Elves *and* Samurai. How many other anime can claim that??? It's like they put Rurouni Kenshin and Lodoss War in a blender and it turned out great (or "delicious" if we want to take this analogy to it's logical conclusion lol.) Also the animation is really g...

Re: Who is your favorite?

I fell in love with Tempest from the get-go because of the name alone. Is that odd? haha Not odd. But in Japanese it's "Temzin", which sounds very similar to "Temujin" aka Genghis Kahn, which sounds even cooler I think. I'm not sure which versions you've played, but in TSS and S...

Re: Japanese name/reference for Magic Tester?

I know of a reference in TSS, and which is retained in English. The Vane Magic School honor roll is made up of references to TV witch characters. Westerners may recognize Samantha of Bewitched, which was a hit in Japan and a forerunner to the magical girl genre. Most of the others are the title cha...

Re: Japanese name/reference for Magic Tester?

Fascinating! There are enough points of similarity that I wouldn't be surprised if that was an inspiration. That said, it works well because the concept of a wind-up drummer or little drummer boy is well-known. There is video of the moment from the Japanese version of Eternal Blue on YouTube: https...

Re: Request: LunarNET Discord Server

I'm not sure -- like I think preferences have shifted to be less permanent, and less structured. Meaning that a forum with defined topics and posts that you can comb back through for years has less appeal, while effectively chat rooms where you can jump in/out of conversation any time with no need ...

Penguindrum: Fate and the nature of family ties: THE ANIME! Yurikuma: Being LGB in Japan: THE ANIME!...
