It’s time

My short vacation time is almost here but I’m just finding pictures for the FGO post while the DMCV one might take a bit longer since I’m still organizing my thoughts while going through DMD. Have a couple things to take care of in real-life despite said vacation time but oh well, I’ll be sure to try and divide my time up well with all the free time, not like there’s much to cover aside from Jojo and the two things I mentioned.

This week’s theme is a memorable one from one of the unexpectedly exciting scenes from Chapter 3 where the crew get involved in a friendly little competition. This scene definitely adds to the amazing sequence of events that Zero’s Chapter 3 is just chock full of that makes it one of the single best chapters in the series.

Did they seriously fucking use Tsuda’s voice for Tiziano? This freaking clown? Just when I was thinking how much I would love to hear Tsuda’s voice again after his work with Bruford years back, now I get this?

I’m actually really upset by that. If you remember what I spoke earlier about the latter half of Part 5, I didn’t have too have many good things to say and while the combination of powers is pretty interesting with Clash and Talking Head, I don’t think too many fights really match the intensity of either Grateful Dead/Beach Boy and White Album.

Done but

So that FGO post is done, but I just need some images to throw it up when I get the chance. I also feel the utter obligation to talk about DMC5 in its own post since I need to organize my own thoughts on it after waiting for so long. It’s not like it’s gonna be that comprehensive or insinuate its that heavily flawed but just a few nitpicks coming from a loyal fan of the franchise who waited a good chunk of his life to play it.

Anyways, this week’s theme is definitely one that sticks out in my mind due to its primary association with the Founder’s Festival event that occurs in Zero no Kiseki’s Chapter 3. Zero’s Chapter 3 is bar-none the best Chapter 3 in the entire series and probably the strongest individual chapter overall with how it covers only 3 days worth of events yet has a ton of scenes worth remembering and one of the most movie-like chapter endings the series ever had. While you could say Chapters 0-2 were pretty formulaic and baseline-setting as any other Trails game, Zero’s takes the cake.

This is a test

So my tardiness already gives away how busy I was this week but there’s two parts to this. First off, Devil May Cry 5 came out and I bought it at Friday and midnight and have been playing it since. The entire week before that was riddled with work and the likes so I could barely get anything out. Stressful times but it all paid off since DMC5 is absolutely fantastic, it’s easily the best gameplay wise out of any DMC game and the story is pretty fun but I don’t think it reaches the narrative quality of 3. One thing is for sure though, the fanservice levels are off the charts. Jojo is also doing a recap episode so no post for that. I’m not making promises but getting that FGO post I talked about since December might be the thing to do for myself this week if I’m not consumed into playing more DMC5.

Anyways, I’m late so let’s get right to it. Almost to play up that dramatic wait and fulfillment of DMC5, for me at least, take one of these build-up tracks from Zero.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure- Vento Aureo Episode 21: So that’s what it does

King Crimson is without a doubt the single-most infamous Stand in Jojo’s history that has elicited more “how does this work” questions in its readers more than anything else, be it joke or legitimate. The black and white panels of the manga didn’t necessarily provide the most comprehensible visuals to explain its powers but I feel that David Pro’s visuals have made it a lot easier to understand now.

But from hence forth, we’re now starting the second half of Part 5, and I’m smelling a new opening for next week.

Busy

Life’s getting busy again but I do have some data to write some stuff about FGO the next chance I have some extended free time. My history with Fate precedes FGO so I’ll try and talk about something interesting coming from a person who’s been with Fate for nearly as long as it’s been around.

But I got work to do so let’s get to the point. This week’s distinctive theme is associated with Jona, one of the other savant children along with the playable cast’s own Tio, who regularly helps out the SSS on the technological side of things. While mostly a freeloader mucking about in a personalized Geofront maintenance room, his assistance will always be had when you’re forced to visit him and have this theme blaring in your ear.

We reach the half-way point where the Boss’s true intentions come to light.

I’ve mentioned many times before that one of the many reasons I looked forward to this adaptation was that a bunch of panels back in the manga were really hard to process and the biggest perpetrator of this was without a doubt King Crimson. It’s been an inside joke for decades on what exactly King Crimson’s powers are and Araki’s initially confusing explanation did that no favors, further so, the shoddy translation work for Part 5 at the start confused people even further. Hopefully now with some moving visuals, less people will be confused.
