Whew, busiest part of the week is gone, only ACEN remains
With some of my harder subjects becoming not real subjects anymore, I’ll be focusing my time to the weekly recaps and trying to get some promised Gametalks done. I renewed my interests in one of them and I decided to spread out the Gametalks so they’re not too widespread in a short notice. I’m still deciding whether or not to just cram episodes in the 2 day span I have or just tackle all of them in a double episode post (what I always do). I’ll decide that in the coming 2 days
Music from Fate/Extra this week is Dawn, the theme that plays in your private room with your servant. An OST that would fit in a some smooth, love making scene in an old movie now fitted into room conversations that include bragging about achievements, snarky rhetoric, and love confessions.
Blarg, works piling up again
This week and half of next week is the busiest time of the year for me and you can already see how Week 5 episodic posts are getting delayed. I finished writing up Maou and about to get started writing up Oregairu. I guess I’ll just release them on the fly with pictures added after my exams are over. So I guess it’s another double episode coverage. I can safely say that once those exams are over, I’ll be pretty much up to date with my stuff. I’ve taken a look at the summer anime line up too and…it’s pretty disappointing.
Anyways, I plan a DotA 2 and LoL centered post and the latter being more fanservice-y compared to the former. Got a lot of videogame based activies in my summer too. I plan on playing LoL a bit with my friend (playing all female champs), amassing some current-gen fighting games (once again, for the female fighters), and a collective Zelda marathon (playing all the Zelda games I have in my collection, Link’s Adventure does not count because it’s hard as balls).
ACEN is hilariously taking place after my exams so I’ll be ready to be completely unproductive in the days following my exams. I’m looking to buy myself a figure or two and hunt down a copy of Fate Extra CCC.
Speaking of Fate Extra, I got my PSP back from my friend and started up Archer’s playthrough. This time though, I’ve been paying more attention to the Arena enemies, backgrounds, and the passages they give you when you enter. I plan on making a small post for that just because I think the background ambiance in Extra is way too underlooked.
So in this week’s Fate Extra OST, it will the theme that plays after you defeat another Servant-Master pair at the end of each week. People really do show how they really are before they die and in Extra, a lot of the masters usually have something good to say, if not them, their servant does.
Been churning out posts, let’s get caught up!
Only got Oregairu and Shingeki no Kyojin left. The other 3 series will basically get a small, seperate post all together. Oregairu only needs pictures to be posted so I’m going to finish that as soon as I post this. It’ll probably be finished by later tonight or early tomorrow. I think I’ll make a League of Legends post or DotA 2 post somewhere in here. League has basically grown old for me and the only lingering thing I have with it is the large sum of money I spent on skins. I’ll definitely play again with friends but actively, it’s all about DotA 2.
So hopefully, I can get caught up before the week’s end and also have time to talk about the two games I mentioned above. Other than that, I’m patiently awaiting Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle, Fate Extra CCC’s localization, and Dark Souls II. ACEN is 2 weeks and a few days away while in those 2 weeks, I have 2 exams I need to take, time to make the 3 day outing more enjoyable with some hard work beforehand to make it all the more relaxing.
Anyways, on to the music. This week is Fate Extra’s Week 6 boss theme. Week 6 featured either Rin with Lancer or Rani with Beserker depending on who you saved. For me, this was the hardest boss fight in the game (excluding Shiki) but the scenery and the theme made the fight all the more enjoyable, even if I had to continue around 4 times.
Boy am I late
Well, the past 5 days have probably been the busiest one of the year, and I’m going to be working on all the late stuff today so hopefully I can get something done. I have pictures to upload and then more posts to write. Been listening to the openings of the animes I’m watching. Oregairu’s instrumentals in the beginning got me hooked, Shingeki no Kyojin’s is epic as hell and is becoming a meme, Maou sama is getting lazy, and Date A Live is meh.
Other than that, not much else to talk about here. Nothing new’s been going on so let’s just get the music out and continue on
This time it’s Fate/Extra’s 1st boss battle theme, it’s pretty calming but the intensity of moment was pretty heavy in the game when you’re about to get someone deleted.
Weeks behind, but what do you care
I’ve decided to NOT review Maoyu for the particular reason of being a lazy asshole who’s already bogged down with enough stuff to type as is, and my small disdain for said series. It wasn’t horrible, but potential has been lost. Jojo doesn’t get one either because, hey, I loved it. I’m at the busiest part of my workload at the moment, but I am gradually working through what I can.
But that’s like the 50th time you heard me say that but oh well.
I have fully switched from LoL to DotA 2 and it’s good to be back with the DotA community, the leaver problem is somewhat fixed and the lag isn’t as annoying as before. Aside from that..there’s not really too much else going on in my game time.
Finally, the massive recap post will be completed around this week. It will cover the first 2-3 episodes while next week’s recap post will cover the episodes released this week and probably next week’s as well.
We’ll take a break with Nujabes and the other artists for this set of music. We’ll return to them at another close point in time. I seem to be enamored with the Fate series these past few weeks. CCC has took a hefty amount of my time, I’ve recently led a friend of mine my PSP and a copy of Extra to see what he thinks (so far so good), and Fate Zero’s dub (which will have its first ep premiere friday) actually has a decent cast of voices. Mostly because Fate Zero is more mature orientated and the generous lack of highschool children prattling about (one of the things dub voice actors can’t replicate well is highschool voices, the girls especially) makes it a much more “easy” dub to accomplish. I, personally, fancy it to say the least
So with Fate in my mind, I decided to tackle the jazzy soundtrack of Fate Extra for the next few weeks. So let’s get to it
This week’s theme is the 2nd Battle theme of Fate Extra’s regular fights. It picks up around 0:44 and once again in 1:13
Day late because…I’m not sure
I will start tackling the Spring Anime once this week is over so be prepared for quick summaries for me to get back on track. Jojo and Maoyuu are due for series reviews and hopefully I’ll get to them by the end of the week. Well actually, just Maoyuu. Reviewing Jojo is redundant as it is an obvious fact that I LOVE IT. So 3 week recap and Maoyuu are in store.
Fate Extra CCC, Jojo’s All Star Battle, and Dark Souls II remain my most anticipated games. Until any of those ever come out in the states, I’m stuck with DotA 2. Not that it’s a bad thing. I’ve basically moved away from League for a while and returned to my roots as a DotA player.
Seeing as how I’m pretty unsocial around the anime blogosphere, I finally picked up a Twitter to re-enter the loop. If my confidence matters to any of you, please follow us (well, just me) on Twitter.
The beautiful tracks of Nujabes will be revisted later on so this will be his last track from him for now. I’ll be exploring songs by other artists until we reach Week #100 where we will return to our good old anime songs. This week is Counting Stars, enjoy
Series review week is upon us
Oreshura is done, Haganai just needs pictures, only Magi and Maoyuu need to be written up. Spring recap might be a bit more delayed due to me working on all this. For this week, expect one post per day. Haganai might be finished today if I’m not too distracted (goddamn you Imgur). Other than that, it’s a pretty standard review-rush week.
Been reading Date a Live (LN) and oh lord Tohka (the “main” girl) is adorable. I’ll have more to say when I actually talk about the first episode. The Fate Extra game talk is complete and holy lord is it lengthy, I’ll spruce it a bit more with pictures and release it around this week. CCC is out in Japan and I’m going crazy over on the spoiler forums. BRING IT TO AMERICA. Been playing Kamidori Alchemy Meister again and that gets its own Gametalk right after Extra.
That’s all for now folks, I need to get back to studying/typing
This week’s music is World’s End Rhapsody bu Nujabes. The music sampled is Betcha if you Check it Out by the Quadraphonics
