Mikan is win after all. I’m going to say I’d depend on Kirino after how she acted in Volume 8 of the light novel. It was a nice role reversal from the typical tsundere relationship. I guess not many people know how that actually went, though.

- Shingeki no Kyojin Mangaka: “I Dumped Its Shocking Ending”:
I don’t know what a lot of the commenters in this thread are thinking, but I think a “shocking” kill everyone ending is exactly what anyone who’s read a story like this would expect. I’ll be pleasantly surprised by an ending with a shred of optimism. Enough stories have gone the Tomino route that it’s not really all that shocking when an anime does it, just aggravating to fans. Sorry if that’s too “sell out” for the folks who want everyone to die, but not everyone wants to do that, including …
- Square Enix: Lightning Returns “Better Than Skyrim!”:
That’s a copy from the Migo’te (that outfit is borrowed from FFXIV) who are fanservicey catgirl types. The pose is a copy, as well, so don’t read too much into it. I liked FFXIII a bit and I thought FFXIII-2 improved on a lot of FFXIII’s weaknesses, but they need to stop making grandiose statements like this. Note even in the quote, though, I get the impression that “this isn’t as good as skyrim but that was our aim.” I’d say some of the announced things, like making the entire game based on …
- Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya “Most Moe Fate Anime Yet”:
I actually quite liked the manga for being funny. The fanservice didn’t hurt (and they didn’t shy away from panchira, unlike the anime it seems). I need to sit down and watch this already. And yes, the title of most moe Fate anime was actually something contestable, because of the OAD series Carnival Phantasm which has Fate characters and is quite moe.
- Square Enix: “There’s No Point In Developing HD Games”:
Have you played the beta yet? Nothing you said actually holds up… I’m a bit puzzled as to why he said this, considering his project is a big budget HD title. He has been working himself stupid though. ARR, from what I’ve played, is quite fun, but the MMO market is kind of in doldroms right now and I’m not super optimistic that it’ll be the success SE needs.
- FF14: “Some Things Never Change”:
Typical SC sensationalist stuff, for sure. I do remember those FFXI queue days (that was for the NPC fellow if I remember correctly), but this new team for FFXIV will probably change it after hearing the complaints because they’re willing to admit mistakes.
