Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium GirlDate Started: 6/30/19

The story’s getting really interesting.  My characters were asked to commit genocide, which none of them were cool with.  You get dialogue options as the main Highlander character, and even though I know it’s “just a game,” I can’t respond in a way that’s against my own moral compass.  Plus I’m hoping to get the one character to like like me if at all possible, lol.

Nothing to really update.  I haven’t played this in the past two weeks.  I may pick it up a bit tonight, and I’ll probably really get into it during my two week vacay.  I need to look up what to do with the grimoire stones.  There’s an option to combine them, but I don’t want to do anything until I know what the hell I’m doing.

About this picture…I will now quote from the famed philosopher: the internet.

When VR become indistinguishable from reality, fantasies will be OFF THE CHAIN.

Do with that what you will.  Oh, and I definitely want one of those hand thingies my dear Seph is wearing on his right   Apparently, Alexa has been listening because I keep getting advertisements and Pinterest recs for them now.  Also, I’m aware his wing is on the wrong side.  Are you going to tell him?  I thought not…

Rounded wicker basketBehold my absolute laziness as I just use the second basket picture for this week.  BEHOLD IT.  I found this one and last week’s months ago for this chapter and figured I’d just roll with it.  I’m not going to use the for the chapter pic, but they’re good for this status post.  I’m more than halfway through the second edit of Chapter 17, and it’s going well.  I don’t think I’ll need a third, so should be able to post as soon as I’m done.  Side note, but I’ve noticed my stories have been getting more kudos and comments on AO3 since the Remake release date announcement et al.  It’s a sensible correlation.  I, myself, have been more active on tumblr, though I’m still pissed at what they did with NSFW stuff and how that apparently fucked up my blog even though I had nothing that was NSFW.  My picture and background are not only gone, but trying to restore them doesn’t work 😡  I’ll hopefully figure it out eventually, but I’m irritated.

“General, c-can you put me down so I can see better, p-please?”

As easy as placing a doll in a house, Sephiroth did as she bid, but she kept his angelic face in her sight, captured as all was forgotten.

“Am I what you wish to peruse, little flower?”  He tried to pull mirth, but it waned.  “You can look at me whenever you wish.”

“I can never look enough.”

The Sunshine Blogger Award #5

I receive a whole hell of lot of these for someone who hates sunlight :p

This time I was nominated by Extra Life Reviews who does just that.  He gives out extra lives and reviews.  Wait…maybe it’s just that his reviews give extra life to all those who read them.  You won’t know which one it is unless you check his blog out, now will you?  I always appreciate every nomination I receive, and I can only apologize for how long it’s taken me to get to this one.  So without further ado, here are the questions I was asked to answer.

1. In which cases would you deem the manga superior to the anime on which it’s based?

Hm, I’ve fallen quite far behind in my anime viewing, not for lack of desire, just lack of time.  It’s been a while since I’ve watched any, and lining up something that I’ve both watched the anime of and read the manga is a bit difficult.  I’ll say that the Chobits manga was more detailed than I remember the anime being (though I watched it a long time ago), although there were things in both media representations that were way ickier to my more 2019 sensibilities.

Well I have a new fandom.  I am ready to drop SO much money on this.  I just bought two manga volumes and I’m already looking for an Edgeworth mug.  Of course I intend to review.  I’ll probably do it when I’ve played them all.  I’m already backlogged with reviews (who’s surprised…), so I’ll probably be finished by the time I’d even get to this one.

I’ve only played the prologue so far, but I love it.  The humor in it is going to be fantastic.
