Late

Awkward timing and circumstance led me to completely forget it was Wednesday. The end of the season is approaching pretty quickly and I’m once again feeling that certain type of way when the season is close to ending. It’s nostalgic saying that because it’s been a while since I’ve been active like this in a while and I can only hope that it somewhat remains the same going into the Summer season, my usual time of year where I think there’s nothing for me to watch, or at least, cover in some capacity.

Also, holy shit Part 5’s anime got announced for October.

With a new picture and new 50 post mark, we switch on over to Trails in the Sky’s 3rd entry that’s a bit different than the rest. The spotlight has shifted from Estelle and Joshua and the new protagonist features Kevin Graham, a member of the church who is introduced in SC’s early chapters. The story takes months after the events of SC where all the characters we know and love have continued their lives in Liberl. Kevin is sent back into the country and is tasked with handling a mysterious device found beneath a chapel in Grancel. Kevin is reunited with his childhood friend and adoptive family member Ries Argent before they’re drawn into a strange world within the mysterious device and the cast members both primary and supporting are drawn into the world as they attempt to unravel its mysteries.

As moving and full of impact as I hoped.

The OST for this series is an element I always praised about and they knocked it out of the park once again. The emotional stakes in the episode were also insanely high and these types of themes of believing in others this hard and particularly Endeavor’s despair over never being good enough is something that always rings something in me personally. Now I’m just curious where they’ll end this season on.

Megalo Box- Episode 11: The Price of a Dream

Sometimes a lie that goes on long enough eventually becomes true.

In the best case scenario, Nanbu finally sees clearly on what’s truly important. I wasn’t too keen on Sacchio’s scene this episode, and admittedly I wasn’t ever big on his character, but it was still a poignant decision that made Nanbu relinquish what Fujimaki hanged over him from the start of the series. All that remains is the final bout.

Ayyyy

DMC5 is announced and all I really care about that fact is that I can actually say that it’s real and it’s happening. I might have some issues with Neros new hairstyle and his odd new business partner but I finally have another game to look forward to again. Really not much else to go on from here, I mostly slept through E3 and only know that there’s like 3 big samurai games from companies I’m familiar with as well as Smash bringing everyone back.

We conclude the music spotlight for Trails in the Sky SC this week with its end credits theme, I Swear. While it’s not my favorite end-theme in the series, it’s quite a nice and uplifting way to send off the story of Estelle and Joshua as they continue their adventure while the rest of the enormous cast part ways to fulfill their own dreams. For the people who played Trails of Cold Steel, this is the song that the class sings during the school festival which is odd seeing as though the motif of Sky is the one popular song there instead of well, this.

Now that the fight to dwarf most all fights before it and most fights after it is finally here, there’s just one scene I’m looking forward to the most in this event and it’s at the very end, after the one fight quote that I know will be quoted for a long time when it airs. The question still remains where Season 3 will end off though, either after all the home visits or a short time after the new semester rolls around.

Pepe and Glenn surprised me with their voices during the press conference and I guess I didn’t fully believe Fujimaki would let things slide without having something to massively gain. The set up for what will truly happen ends up like the beginning of the series where Joe is asked who to bet for and against while Nanbu clearly has something scheming.

Sleepy

Money making is making me sleep in a weird sleeping pattern so I’ve been out of it for the past week. Still got Megalo Box and BnHA out in time while still keeping up with P5 the Animation which honestly hasn’t been all that horrendous now that they’re mucking around doing the slice of life stuff before they go and meet Makoto and go do Kaneshiro’s palace. Still haven’t been keeping up with Wotaku unfortunately so hopefully I get some time of clarity to catch up with that on a weekend.

This week’s theme is yet again another familiar tune using Trails in the Sky’s motif. This piece plays during the final moments before the credits begin to roll and while the climatic moment doesn’t exactly make the tension any less weighted, I still knew “that” wasn’t going to happen. In fact I was more concerned of the scene BEFORE this particular scene happened but unless any reader is familiar with the final moments of SC, all my whispers won’t mean jack.
