Since it was mentioned here on forum, I watched yuri on ice (instead of sleeping in night, again XD) and wow, if they keep both characters together, if they end up as happy boyfriends I would be very happy. But knowing anime they will say farewell to each other at the end "to find a way to make their dreams/aspirations to come true"...

 I hope not and that would be first happy BL couple outside yaoi/shounen ai shows.

 (In the end Nezumi and Shion still didn't reunite and for Mikleo and Sorey I afraid for second season of anime. Ufotable messed up game canon in their pairing and important story part with last two episodes of first season so much that I afraid of the future now. Still I'm going to wait for January to see second season and hope that it won't mess up other important moments from game...)

I feel like I am morally obliged at this point to watch YOI, at least four people are more or less nudging me to do so by now, pff.
(I was gonna check it out anyway but after the series ends, dunno now. Maybe after the next episode I'll pick it up...)

Gosh, I'm so tired. And I really want to finish this one fic... it's been in progress for 7+ years and it's close to a quarter million words can I JUST BE DONE WITH THIS.


@kare_reiko: yeah, I share your unhappiness with the S1 ending of Zestiria - but I do feel Sorey and Mikleo's relationship is too important for the plot and their characters to take out. Though I do think they're under-representing their relationship in favor of Alisha (I love Alisha! I do! But there's a reason she gets a side story, since the main story isn't as much about her as S1 likes to pretend. I have a 20+ slide PowerPoint about this actually. I was slightly salty after the season ending...). They did change some things plot wise, but to take out Sorey and Mikleo's relationship would mean more than just a little plot twist.
Knock on wood since I'm not Ufotable and you never know, but I honestly doubt they're gonna take them away from us in S2. The manga also changed some things (and I'm sure the novels did too but I haven't gotten to those yet), but never these two and their bond. And hey, in the end, it was Ufotable who gave us the cut-scenes in the game to begin with.
... that being said, I WILL start an uprising if we don't get the Lastonbell scene in some manner or form, that stuff was GOLD.


@Weisel: oh geesh, you can't catch a break can you ._. I hope the plumber stuff works out...

Oh, finally someone to talke about Zestiria ^^.
 @listenforthelove

You mean Lastonbell scene before final battle? I'm worried about that part too. In game it was perfect, beautiful and well done, so I'm really afraid what they do to it in next season. Well, maybe I wouldn't mind if they put more drama in Mikleo about Sorey decision to go sleep 'no one knows hows long'.
Well I liked Alisha and I didn't mind that they put her more into anime, but they wasted first half of ep 11 and then that 'Sorey falling into darkness for no reason' at end of 12. Not mention that Dezel wasn't some kind of pervert, it was Zaveid's role XD. What really made me mad at the end of that season that they cut out whole scene when Sorey's resonance was cut off.
It was powerful scene and I loved it. When we get later skit that Mikleo cried for Sorey because it was first time when they couldn't see each other, Sorey was almost killed and rest of party couldn't help him. I wanted to see this scene even more powerful. It made more clear why Mikleo worked hard to get Rose into their team too later. So someone could protect Sorey when Mikleo would be not able to.

It makes me worried about Dezel end, since he entered the story in last episode. And what I fear the most is what they would do with part of Sorey's and Mikleo's past and born of Heldalf... I just pray that Unfotable don't ruin this part. I wonder if there will be still scene of lie about Sorey and Rose marriage to get into Lastonbell for the first time, it was so funny I always almost cry when I see it.

We wont probably get the "other promise" of Mikleo and Sorey in Elysia, since 12 episodes is small for story that was left to told. I really think that if they keep current pace then there should be 3 seasons to cover history nicely.

As I'm afraid of next season, I'm looking forward for that school AU ova that going to be added to Zestiria Bluray edition. At least I think I read it good and there will be such 30 minutes ova. And I hope someone going to upload that because price for it is like my 3 months whole payment XD
Thare were some random sketches too, but I'm not sure if they are for that ova or those would be only colored pictures. I would love small animation of Sorey and Mikleo eating icecream that Mikleo made :)

Hehe I equiped for current gameplay swimsuits too XD. I just finished Dezel (bye) scenes so I yet to repeat balcony scene. Anyway seeing story with characters in swimsuit it's really fun, I'm making bunch of scenshots while playing XD. For next play I'm going to make them all wear school clothes XD and again make bunch of photos XD

Funny thing that I got today bad ending but I still can't beat my shadows to get my equipment from previous play XD.

Well. Acting scene is funny, they may keep it just like one when Sorey hold his breath in order for ALisha to hear Lailah's voice. Good scene to start new season.

Well. it's not like I don't like anime. I really like episode with Edna and Eizen introduction. This part may be better than in game, the same with Alisha's entrance into Izuchi. Mikleo sidequest was cute too :), but I would love to see Sorey and Mikleo's tickle fight XD, too bad that they cut it out0 (please let them put it into next season ending! ).
Well, now what's left is to sit down and wait for end of January. I hope second season wouldn't get delayed.

@kare_reiko:

Swimsuits are just an A+ addition to the game. Well that and the school uniforms, if only because it canonically calls Sorey and Mikleo out as giant nerds XD (I'm still laughing over the hair styles. Mikleo helped Sorey pick his so he's a dreamboat now! OKAY GAME THANKS FOR BEING SO SUBTLE ABOUT IT.)
What a great game, honestly. I mean. Maybe don't give Dezel sunglasses and stuff if you want to get the plot the first time but otherwise.

Wow you got the bad ending? Niiiice. Well, not so nice but nice that you got it, haha.

Fingers crossed for the acting scene! They do pull some great faces in the game, I can't wait to see them in more detail in the anime.

It's a good anime series! I just think the pacing choices are a bit odd and well, the last episode kinda  put a damper on it for me. But I definitely agree that the Edna and Eizen introduction is very nice compared to the game (and definitely more painful, OUCH), and it was good to see some more backstory for Alisha. Skipping tickle fights is unforgivable though, they better give those to us in S2.
Considering how quickly they announced it I'm gonna assume S2 is going according to schedule? Like, they just animated and recorded everything in one go? Oh well, we'll see!

@listenforthelove
Yes, notes about cutting and modeling each other hair isn't very subtle XD.
To tell truth I don't like Sorey and Mikleo's DLC hair. I rather use their basic ones. They look a lot better in swimsuits and with school uniforms in my opinion.
I make sceenshots during acting scene in swimsuits XD

http://karereiko.tumblr.com/post/153687095812/well-long-story-short-i-love-the

I spend 3 $ just Mikleo and Sorey had each other chibi on themselves just to show their love XD (Sometimes it's problematic because Mikleo's chibi covers someones face or sorey's face XD)


ps. After running around for 40 hours with Sorey in swimsuit I can say that Sorey has nice ass in this trousers. I would draw some parody with it if I didn't have pile of Nezushi works in line.  XD

@Weisel: ah geesh :/ ugh that really sucks... any chance at all it might be an easy fix? :/


@kare_reiko: Just. 'The Incident'. THIS GAME.
Yeah, either the hair barely looks different or it's - not an improvement, haha. I love playing the first part of the game in school uniform, nerds on a field trip!

I SAW THAT POST WHAT A GOOD POST YOU DID A V GOOD THING.
Haha yeah the attachments don't always interact as they should - took a lot of effort to have a normin hanging off Mikleo's shoulder and then it just. Stays there. Floating in mid-air. Whenever he slightly moves. Oops XD; At least the one on his head stayed put! It just wobbles A LOT.

Ah, reading all that just made me breathe properly again.

I feel with you Weisel. University is turning into hell right now. I thought I could catch a break after finishing 6month of internship... but yeah. No.

The workload we got right now is slowly turning into a 12 hour study day. And my mother is pressing me to socialise with people I have nothing in common with, so she doesn't have to go alone, even though SHE likes them. But oh joy for me. That's not my company. Every time I make a witty comment no one gets it and they just stare at me and I'm just... sorry that I actually said something intelligent and don't sit here like decoration. But go on, keep complaining about the same thing over and over and over.

And all of you watching YOI: I was so sceptical with that show at first, but I ended up watching it as well and I love it. I love how they made Yuri so perfectly relatable. A true gem. I hope they keep it in the current flow and don't turn over to bland fanservice.

Well I really love Yuri on ice. I'm very happy with 10th episode. The only thing I'm sad about that such great BL anime came up when I was so happy with Zestiria. Don't get me wrong. YoI is almost perfect, so perfect that Sorey and Mikleo (who's producer/script writer told us that they are 'one an only one for each other")  look weak compare to Yuri and Victor. Way they handle Alishia in anime don't help that fact too.
I would love Zestiria anime to be more like YoI but Ufotable was clearly afraid to go that way...

I was pretty shocked but very happy with YoI ep. 10. Definitely a nice pick-me-up after another ER visit (I'm okay, don't worry). I have to watch the last part of the episode again...

Waited till I knew the dog was safe before catching up with Yuri on Ice, although my dash thoroughly spoiled me anyway, haha. What a good show though. I def need to rewatch episode 10 again to make sure that was actually all real, that's just amazing. Really loving the characters.


@Kare_reiko: ah - well, to be honest, Zestiria kind of has a whole lot of fantasy world issues to deal with XD; so as much as I love the relationship between Sorey and Mikleo, it's understandable that it doesn't have the focus all the time. (I ramble a lot below, so spoiler tags ahoy!)

@listenforthelove

Yeah, I know that Zestiria is first fantasy story and I love it. I just would love if for example in scene Lastonbell they hold at leas for a moment hands or one nice warm hug during the story (well anime has more hugs, but they were supportive hugs not cuddle one XD). If that would be in game I could die happy XD

About YoI and Kubo-sensei, after she done with YoI (first and second season) let's throw money on her and make her do good, at least 24-36 episode remake on NO.6.... This would be the best thing on world T_T.
Uhhh... I have writing block... All this YoI and Zestiria make me so focused on them that I can't gather NO.6 mood to continue "Not Perfect" and without good rethinking and feeling next chapter would end not perfect XD. I think most problem is that last chapter ended before boys went back home. I had to start chapter with scene of them ending their trip and somehow it feels strange. I can't figure out how make good start and how much "in between arcs things I have in my head" write in next chapter. Because after I start the last big arc there will be not coming back and writing them not possible anymore.
Uhhh... I need to somehow unblock myself.

@kare_reiko: ah, yeah, I guess we have to settle for early-game when you can move Sorey just right so that he looks like he's hugging Mikleo. Hm-m.
But yeah, I'm holding out for a hug too. They can give us that much at least, right?

Ah yeah, I feel ya re: other stories interfering... it's really hard to get back in the right mindset once you're so out of it. Maybe try rereading some of the story or rereading canon?
