Lord El Melloi II Case Files Episodes 10: But Why? Why would he do any of that?

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.

Music of the Week #414

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.

Music of the Week #413

Delays

I actually have a solid excuse this time: I got a new laptop and spent around two days moving everything and installing everything over again. The only gripe I have right now is that my earbuds pop every time sound starts up after there’s nothing playing. Reinstalling drivers doesn’t seem to do the trick, I hope I can fix it. El Melloi will be good to go right after this.

You gotta love it when a recurring motif gets a dramatic shake-up and there’s nothing as telling as the main fight theme getting it. Played in more emotional moments, I remember this theme being the time when Randy told Lloyd about his past and how his actions got an innocent friend killed by his reputation. For one reason or another, something about Tio and Elie never felt worth romancing while bro-ing it up with Randy just felt right, maybe it’s because it somewhat feeds into Lloyd’s brother being dead.

Busy Busy

I feel like watching Tejina-senpai, I’ll probably binge it sooner or later like I always do when I’m rounding seasonal recaps. Aside from that it’ll just be the usual fare until we hit the Fall season.

This week’s theme is the mysterious tune of the Crossbell Marshland of Blue that is a boat ride away from the city’s docks. This part of the game has you investigate further into the mysterious events and rumors that pop up after the Orchis Tower incident is concluded. Yin, the mysterious assassin, whose identity is obvious, joins up with the crew to the end of the expedition.

I should really try and see if this is what actually happens in the novels because for an adaptation, we’re still more than half original content for this series.

Because I feel like I would have heard something about these events from some errant TypeMoon conversation but guess not. TM does tend to throw in a lot of characters from other works in these alternate time-lines, take Caules and Kairi for example, but were the Animuspheres this prominent before Grand Order? I need to dig up some info.

Music of the Week #411

A bit late

Some last minute preparations had me working a bit longer than expected. We’re finally back on track now that I got Case Files out so hopefully things continue smoothly. I’ve been slow this season but next season seems, interesting to say the least.

This week’s theme is the theme of one interestingly prominent side-character who we mostly stopped thinking about by the middle of Zero. Early in Zero, you deal with the turf wars between the gangs called the Testaments and the Saber Vipers. Wazy, the leader of the former, ends up joining the SSS while Wald stays behind and you even fight him to symbolize Wazy moving on from their petty conflicts. Wald’s character however becomes something of a rival for Wazy even after story events advance his character by a ton. Wald’s involvement, for someone so minor in the side-character department surprised me and I appreciated how he was able to play a role in the game.
