It’s a bit tough to discuss this series as a whole for a number of things
- I never read the novels.
- It’s an adaptation of said novel series but it’s adapting the middle segment of it
- The magic system replaces the usual elements of a traditional mystery
And for that reason, I’m going to keep it short.

Back on things
I’m currently unsure of how many Case Files there’s going to be. Doing the double feature did tell me how we’re nearing the end of the season and how I wasn’t ever able to binge Tejina-senpai yet. For better or for worse, Fall 2019 seems like one hell of a season for me since we’ve got stuff like Bokuben S2, FGO: Babylon, and Azur Lane just to name a few. Bokuben will or more less have me question how far they intend to take the series since the really good chapters are farther down the line, FGO Babylon will mostly be me waiting for the finale, and Azur Lane’s original anime is going to be either a complete fucking disaster or be surprisingly palatable. I’m excited to find out all things considered. And wouldn’t you know it, Date A Live got green-lit for another season, god help us.
As of prelude of things to come, if Renne and her special friend didn’t surprise you, then the event this theme plays will probably cement the fact that the Kiseki series takes place in the midst of a technological revolution. If the switch from Liberl to Crossbell, even with just Zeiss, wasn’t a jump then the series’ future with Cold Steel still has much to show, even if the quality of its contents may not. Anyone complaining about mechs in this series need to remember that mechs were there since the 1st game.
Since I’m already a week late.
Been a bit since I was forced to do this eh? Real life got in the way hard and I’ll leave the excuses to be discussed in the weekly music post. Let’s get through this as things get exciting as the mystery comes to a close.

Things are becoming consistent in keeping me busy
Not too much to say. Darksiders 3 so far has been keeping my paranoia for RPGs about limited upgrade materials. Unlike the other two games, there are a ton of enchantments AND weapons you can slot them into so there’s a lot of decision-making to be had since materials are in high demand, especially fully upgrading them. Although, in all cases, the evasion-boosting one is probably the best bet. Is it as good as the first two? Well I might write about that later on once I finish it.
Speaking of games I finished, I feel like I should have posted this one earlier since it is a track in the game that also plays in the title screen. Compare it to Zero no Kiseki’s eponymous title screen tune and it wastes no time in establishing a different tone than its previous entry.
Adashino is looking more suspicious by the episodes, even if Olga survived that encounter.
Things are stacking up to be busier but I should still be alright now that Nerofest is finally over.

Ah damn it
Wouldn’t you know, actual life outside of lethargy is cutting into the regular schedule. Case Files hasn’t even been written up yet but I should be able to get everything sorted out by tomorrow. I guess I can blame Darksiders 3 too for eating up my weekend.
So we’ll just mosey on with our music spotlight before I throw myself into more work. This week’s catchy ass tune is I Miss You, which is something I unfortunately have forgotten when it exactly plays but the worst part is that it’s at the tip of my tongue but I just can’t pinpoint which scene it was. Think it involved your bond-point partner or it involved Randy during one of his episodes where he decides to take matters into his own hands with his family being back around.
Not only do we get trains but we also now get Dead Apostles in the form of a forest that pops up wherever it wants.
We got even more fights but sadly taking place outside of the train, boo. Black Keys are always fun to watch though and boy does the thirsty pink girl get on my nerves.
