The Eorzean Hijack… 4 months later

FFXIV

Hell yeah!

Yeah, I know it’s slow and all, but finally getting here after so much ups-and-downs feels really good. Oh, and I did it with a single tank composition too lol. Now I only just gotta clear the extreme primals…

Anime related stuff:

  • Galileidonna turned out pretty disappointing :(
  • Hocchan’s performance is Golden Time is pretty awesome :D
  • Valvrave this season is just so….. DORAMA. C’mon Sunrise, where’s your execution?
  • Log Horizon is fucking awesome! Akatsuki and Minori are so cute!
  • Outbreak Company had the best soccer-related anime episode ever. Also Myusel is so HNNNNGGGGH

That’s all in the meantime. Preemptive Merry Christmas to all my (still faithful) readers!

    Yes, Log Horizon is really genius. It reminds me of Sword Art Online…

    At least you got it there. My team members are like busy here and there to the point where T1-4 we have to sub members and can’t do T5 lol.

    Garuda EM is a tank headache and anti-melee, Titan EM is a freaking reaction speed game.

    Well,since I have followed you sporadically on this blog ,ever since the first season of Code Geass, I was actually a bit distraught when you disappeared.
    So I went searching and found you on twitter. Which in turn introduced me to Akame ga KILL!, which I am currently loving. So I guess all is well that ends well. Merry Christmas!

    I saw Madoka Rebellion last week, and loved/hated it. Waiting to see what you think of it.

    Funny you say this though, when everything about Log Horizon is the antithesis of SAO.

    No comment on monogatari kuro? Dem SHAFT trolls and feels.

    Haven’t watched…

    Any tips on FF14 ARR?

    Finish your main story quest ASAP.

    @TheFighter

    Unlike SAO, Log Horizon is softer than the former. You don’t want rape and wanton violence being aired in NHK…

    Anyways, welcome back blogging again Kuro!

    It’s a pity about Koko when I prefer Linda, I never thought Ai Kayano and Yui Horie would be in a harem situation.

    @Benigmatica

    The original story of Log Horizon was more violent than what we’re being shown, and also made it plain that, in the lawless parts of Elder Tale, rape was a real problem. Unlike Sword Art Online, Elder Tale wasn’t designed as a virtual reality game, so it had no need to design in-game safegaurds against sexual assault, because that simply wasn’t possible to do in a keyboard and mouse computer game. The novels make it plain that, now that Elder Tale has become a real world, things like that are becoming a real problem. Guards don’t interfere, because they’re only programmed to act when someone “attacks” someone else, an “attack” being defined as an action that causes hitpoint loss.

    Because it’s airing on NHK, the anime just ignores the possibility entirely, but it’s something to keep in mind. It’s one of the reasons why Serara was in real danger in Susukino, why Minori and the other were in reao danger in Hamelin’s guild hall, and why it was important to establish the Round Table and create laws and a system of enforcement for the protection of people.

    The above having been said, the focus of Log Horizon is entirely different from the focus of SAO. The focus of SAO was “how do we get out.” The focus of Log Horizon, as we have been told repeatedly at the end of every episode preview, is “this is our reality.” Because they have no idea how they came to be in that world, how they can escape that world, or if it’s even possible to escape that world, they have instead focused on figuring out how to LIVE in that world. In fact, I doubt “how do we get out” will ever become a significant issue in the run of the anime, because the world is simply too big, and they have zero information on where to even begin looking for answers.

    Merry Christmas, and thanks for taking the terrible and no doubt deadly effort of redacting some lines after like three months of playing videogames.

    Glad to see you still alive and kicking, Kuro… enjoy your time off :->

    Once you feel like marathoning some anime again, I’d strongly recommend White Album 2 (in not only my opinion by far the best show of the season which nobody talks about since they didn’t watch/like the mostly-unrelated White Album, and which is now gaining prominence in anime veteran circles due to word of mouth), and I support watching the Koigatari parts, too.

    December 27, 2013 @ 6:46 pm

    THAT VALVRAVE!!! Loooooool wtf was that end ;d Dunno it was supposedly filled with drama but it kinda seemed funny especially cause Shoko is a fucking bitch.

    “Log Horizon is fucking awesome!”

    That’s because everything else is fucking crap.

    ^what about Kill La Kill?

  24. edru Said,

    December 29, 2013 @ 7:38 pm

    kuro I also recommend white album 2. you dont need to watch the first one for this to make sense, the only connection is that its in the same universe except 10 years after the first one, and that there is the song called “white album”.

    frankly its one of the most “original” romance, as in you cant really find any other anime that does it like this one.

    @Kurogane Shiroikaze
    And to think I had the game for a month, Leveled my Gladiator to 31,
    Pugilist to 15, my Conjurer to 20, Summoner to 15 and my Warrior to 20 along with at least sic crafting jobs over 10 with Armorer at 21 an NOW is attempting the story!

    I’m shocked how sidetracked I got once I got was given my airship pass….

    I’m just ITCHING to explore those level 40 and up areas!! They look so deliciously grim brimming with hostility!

    Ahem… you really should give Kill La Kill a since its so awesome!

  26. Netami Said,

    January 3, 2014 @ 11:17 pm

    @Fantom Honestly got no idea what you’ve been doing but you can explore the game fully in a day and I mean like 10 hours of riding around probably even less >_> The world in FF14 is very tiny.

    Loving Log Horizon myself as well! Probably the best of the season for me.

    People are always lurking so I don’t think that’d be an issue.

  37. Netami Said,

    April 10, 2014 @ 4:33 am

    Yes cause waiting 6 months for a few pathetic raid bosses makes it the best game ever =/ Pathetic shit of a game and it’s going into even worse direction I’d rather replay any single player FF than play this pile of shit.
