  1. Because of that cover, I got curious of Plunderer (since I just found out it's also published in the same magazine). Decided to watch the anime and read the manga. Managed to read that particular issue and saw the contents, no mention of Guyver whatsoever.
  2. I got the Rhava Velar and it does cheese the game. And It's unbelievable that you can actually use Standstill on the last boss. Being the last boss, you'd assume that cheap shots won't work on it. But apparently it does. Man, getting all the cool stuff takes the fun out of the game.
  3. I still haven't seen it. I'm guessing that not a lot of people like it mainly because we got used to the same kind of storytelling. If this was shown 10 or 20 years ago, opinions might be different then. People are just expecting too much. Darth Vader being Luke's father *gasp* might have shocked a lot of people way back in 1980, but use the same plot now and nobody bats an eye. I'll still watch it though regardless what people say about it. I'll form my own opinion then.
  4. Yup, played both SOTN and Aria of Sorrow here. I still like this game though. I did what you did by using Japanese audio. I did find subtle differences in the translation, like Shardbinder being referred to as Shardlinker in Japanese, and a lot of re-phrasing to fit western colloquial terms. But it's not something I'm bothered about. There are a lot of things they can do storywise, but Iga didn't have a lot of leeway in terms of backstory compared to Castlevania which had decades worth of history. I have to admit, I play this not for the story, but for the fun factor. To this day, I still enjoy playing SOTN emulated on the PC. Until I get the Crissaegrim that is. Everything is just cheese after that. Have you obtained the Rhava Velar yet? (you most likely have) If so, does it cheese the game as well? I do love the music. I fell in love with the theme from the Entrance and I always get Last Song Syndrome with it. Michiru Yamane is truly a genius.
  5. Soooo..... Anybody playing this game? They dubbed this as the spiritual successor to Castlevania SOTN. So far, it looks amazing. And yes, it does run on a potato PC. I only have an i3 but it still runs.
  6. I've been following the manga for a very long time and I'm still confused with what is happening. I always get the Eldians and Marleyans mixed up. Everything started to get confusing after the time jump. Whose side is Eren on anyway? It was obvious on the later chapters, but it's still confusing.
  7. Arifureta Shokugyo de Sakei Saikyo. (From commonplace to world's strongest) Actually started reading the manga a few months ago, and then started reading the web novels when the manga caught up. Only found out recently that an anime is currently airing. Another interesting series for me. What is it with these Isekai series? These seems to be the constant thing that gets my interest recently.
  8. Page 48 [It not only enveloped the body, but engulfed everything. It gradually enters the mouth to the nose, and most probably through the pores... Even inside the head, like pushing through the back of the skull. Although it doesn't hurt, it just feels disgusting. It feels like all my insides are being distorted.] [It's like changing from a larvae into a butterfly. The body being broken down and melted, and then taking on a new form.] [Please stop. I'm not a worm you know.] Shou frowned. [Oh, sorry. It's just that no matter how you look at the outside, there are just no traces of what happened.] Tetsuro thought looking at the change in Shou. The brown colored object that thrust into Shou widened as it melted, overturning all of his body. On the forehead is where the half round metal orb stuck. At first it looked like a mud man, but when the orb on the forehead stood out, the figure began to form into something more distinct. The proliferating cells seems to be hardening. The extra swelled area that dripped immediately disolves in the air and disappears. Immediately after, a strange humanoid figure stood there. The whole body is covered with something like a white shell, which gray tissue is being removed. Page 49 The shoulders, elbows and knees seems to have a thick armor. What was disntinguished from the face was that there is an antenna extending from the forehead. From below there a red light was released, as the brightness increases, it slowly turns into white. On both sides of the head where the ears was, the area where the mouth used to be, as well as the center of the belly, there was a shining metal orb similar to that on the forehead. It looks something like an enhancement suit, but having closer resemblance to a living thing. Is Shou still inside of this? or could it be.... While at a loss, Tetsuro thought, "it" is moving. The halo on the forehead came alive. A strong light was leaking from the space in between the metal orb and it's base. At the same time the orb started to emit a high oscillating sound. Immediately nothing can be heard and there remained a sense of discomfort in the tympanic membrane. The frequency may have risen to ultrasound. As if the sound injured [it], it slipped from the shore and fell to the swamp. [It was immediately after that those guys appeared.] Heavy footsteps from the woods can be heard- Heading towards Tetsuro who was looking at the swamp, a man with their face hidden with goggles and helmet appeared. And also a monster.
  9. I actually did not know that. Wow, you learn something new every day.
  10. Page 46 In this room you can hear the members of the theater club practicing their vocalization, which these two paid no attention to. [Don't worry] Tetsuro smiled. [Even if they heard it, nobody would think that it was a reality. Though it would be different if they had spies.] [No. It's just that it's embarrassing.] [Hey...] [I mean it's too far removed from reality.] Though it did not came out of his voice, Shou was saying [you're reading too much into SF] [In the first place, even if it was a living weapon, what is possible right now are biological virus. Do you think they are able to make monsters like that?] [Do you think it's impossible?] Tetsurou thought. [But there is no other explanation. Those guys and that creature called Gregole, they are most likely from the military who joined some sort of organization. Things about training and battle members, of even things like combat use Biotechnology, it's most likely a large organization.] They way Tetsuro speaks is like he is really serious. [Why would an organization like that appear here?] Page 47 [Having those kind of equipment, they might be able to find us.] -At that day, Shou and Tetsurou took a shortcut through the lake to go home. In those mountains, they thought they heard a big explosion, but is was something that descended. It was around 30 centimeters. After the dust settled, there was a round shaped object with 3 triangle. Shou who picked it up thought at first that it's something that looks like a part of a rotary engine, the metal part is only the outer casing, and it is clearly protecting something inside. There was a protrusion on the center of the opposite side. It was a half round big metal orb, sitting in a round pedestal. The shell is not separate, but directly connected to the inside. In order to get a better look at the object he took a little peek inside. You could see an enamel line covering a coil, and it looks like some sort of living object. Like some sort of dark grayish muscle, getting a clearer look there are horizontal ring segments. But there doesn't seem to be any signs of life. And then time seemed like it sopped for an instant. What is this, at that thought Shou touched the metal orb with his hands. There was a clicking sound, and the object started making a noise. There are steam like particles coming out of the object. In the next instant, the organism came alive. From the calm state is was in before , now it's suddenly full of life and started to crawl. The casing suddenly split open, and the thing turned into an amoeba like organism, reaching out to Shou violently.
  11. Page 44 [But you know Fukamachi-kun already has a girl he likes. It's the club president's sister, Segawa Mizuki] [Ah, is that so.] [By the way, this will be troubling.] Natsuki whispered to her to keep it a secret. [Mizuki, you see, she joined Student Council President Makishima-san, and is completely obliviously of it.] [Makishima you mean, that fine young man?] [Ah, you've seen him? Yup, that old man. He has a strong impact doesn't he. I don't know what's so good about him though. Anyway, when Mizuki comes, don't go letting that out. Fukamachi-kun is really weak to pressure, and can't seem to clearly say what he wants. So Noriko might have a chance.] [Yeah- but that's not it.] [I know. But let's cooperate okay. Although I am Mizuki's friend, it's CASE BY CASE. I have to say a little, otherwise it won't be interesting.] She just kept saying what she wants. However, she seems to have a foothold of things. [Biological weapons?] Shou let out a loud voice and I looked around. Page 45 <image of Natsuki introducing Noriko to Tetsuro and Shou>
  12. Page 42 Those people who come to Tokyo struggle, no matter how much I hear them speak, I have to keep reassembling the words in my head. With that, with just one gap, you get pushed in to that person's pace. Although there are those who have an unreserved attitude in my home town... The SF Club room is located at the end of the school building in a narrow room with a size of 6 mats. [Chief. I've brought the transfer student.] With Natsuki's voice, the big guy in glasses turned around. He has a physique, more or less, but doesn't seem to be doing any sports. [He is the club president Segawa Tetsuro. Then, this is-] [I'm Fukamachi Shou. ...ah, I'm not a member though.] The male student that Tetsuo was talking to lowered his head. He looks like a second year student. To say it positively he is cute, but to say it negatively, he looks like an undependable young man. But Noriko seem to notice something on Tetsuro. (This person is-) The name of the "Suspicious Suspect" that uncle was talking about, it was Segawa Tetsuro. [What's the matter?] Tetsuro put on a suspicious face. [No, it's nothing] Page 43 [What a dirty room, you're probably surprised right? Geez, it gets messy no matter what you do. The theme for this semester is to clean up the club room.] [Well, if we make a plan carefully-] Tetsuro is running away [Shou. Let me talk to you for a while.] [Hey! Stop running away. And here we have a new person, why don't you explain] [I'll leave that to you] [Really! You're not even doing anything.] Natsuki, sending the other two out, voices out unsatisfactorily. [Fukamachi-kun is not a member right. They seem to get along well.] [Yup. They've been an acquaintance for a long time.] Natsuki gave an meaningful look. [Do you have an interest in him?] [Eh? No it's not that.] [There's no point hiding it. When we saw Fukamachi-kun a while ago, didn't he had a spaced out look. It's a bit cute.] She was looking at Tetsuro, Noriko wanted to say, but she reconsidered. It might be better as there might be a misunderstanding. Also, if you keep touch with people around you, you might hear something.
  13. Page 40 And then it is a little later after the first day of transfer. During cleaning duty, the desk have started to close. Noriko was somewhat overwhelmed. In Tokyo, or rather in the school where a criminal is present, this is so much like the TV series [High School Rakugaki] or some sorts, with a bunch of guys smoking that you won't think that they are high schoolers -half of myself actually believed it to be like that. Even then, this is not Tokyo, no matter what kind of place the transfer was made, you would think that this is still the same place. From the moment she was born, Noriko has never left the place that she was born. Just based on physical appearance, there are a lot of male classmates of Noriko that looks a lot younger than her. Although it is not rare to be transferred in your third year, nobody asked for the reason. In any case, even if it feels cold, you'll get used to it eventually. It's just, at first, when being greeted in the Principals Office, the Student Council President- Makishima as he was called, he looks mature and probably older by 2 to 3 years, that's what I feel anyway. I wonder if he is special... Page 41 [Hey] There was a voice coming out of the female student [Ah... Yes, uhm....] Speaking of which, she hasn't introduced herself yet. [Taga Natsuki. Nice to meet you. Anyway, have you decided on which club to join?] [No...] [Are you interested in SF?] [SF? I don't know much about that stuff.] [But you read books right?] During my self introduction, I did remember mentioning an interest in reading books. I also said that Noriko also means [nothing special]. I don't need to join any club activity. I have to strongly refuse- if not for my goal, I don't really care much. While thinking on how to say this.... [We are from the SF club, right now, we don't have enough members. If it is alright with you, won't you come a take a look?] With that , Natsuki quickly stood up. In the end, I wasn't able to come up with a good way to refuse, there's nothing I can do I guess. (Wouldn't it be better to clearly say it at a time like this)
  14. Perhaps you meant poor Four? I never really found the story of Puru and Puru 2 to be tragic. Probably because at how lighthearted they wanted to portray Gundam ZZ. I know it's supposed to be spelled Ple, but that just sounds awful. I like it spelled Puru better, probably Plu, but not Ple. It's like saying someone's name as bleh.
