When I said 100+ books I missed a word. I meant several 100+ pages. That changes what I meant a lot. I did not write 100+ books haha. Just noticed that. I don't write very much anymore; I mostly just read and edit my childhood friend's stuff (I usually wrote with her. I've known her since I was born). If you want me to, I could edit some of your stuff. Not sure how I would. Maybe through google docs or something.

That honestly reminds me. For what was supposed to be just a promotional anime (Zestiria the X), It at least does its job far better than the likes of Rewrite. When i was watching Zestiria the X, I was thinking "Man, i kind of actually want to play this game", and since it went on sale for 84% of on the bandai store, i ended up getting it, so i've been playing that.

So in a way, It did its job. It advertised the game, and while admittedly i wouldn't have never gotten it if it wasn't on such a steep sale, I likely still wouldn't have gotten it if the anime didn't exist. Now looking at Rewrite which is essentially the same thing, If i wasn't already an avid reader of Visual Novels, and hadn't already read it, I'd have a hard time justifying myself to actually go out of my way to read it. I don't think many people who aren't used to the visual novel genre will go out of their way to get this. If it ends up on Steam (as it probably will), I can see some people grabbing it on sale, but i doubt they'd pay full price for it, and it would be a rather low priority unless they're big fans of Key.

People tend to shit on Zestiria for being "The worst Tales game", but honestly i don't find it to be that bad. Its true that plot wise, I liked both Symphonia and Abyss better, and those are the only two i've played, Zestiria still does things decently. I'm only 1/3 of the way through it, at the most right now, though.

Nice seeing someone that still follows the knight/quest theme these days. Your story.

Thanks for your interest and joining. The intended audience is young adults. As long as your story isn't erotic, it may be OK.

Thank you for the happy birthday wish (which was ages ago, sorry for replying so late ­čśş)

Ah, a fellow writer! I wrote several 100+ books when I was younger too. Brings back memories...I will definitely read your story and leave some feedback! Thanks for giving me a chance to read it :)

If white fox got Rewrite with minimum 24 episodes, It would've been a solid 8/10, at least.

Mob has been top for me this season, and it literally baffles me that it has less than an 8 average on MAL, when its honestly better than OPM. However, i do think OPM is a bit overrated, other than its obvious attention to detail and faithfulness to the manga. I think alot of people unfairly judge it by the merit of its' art, and the first episode wasn't as strong as it could've been. Like honestly going by MAL averages, and taste, the show should on all accounts be sitting at minimum an 8.4.

Rewrite is kind of a mixed bag for me. I honestly appreciate some of the scenes but with the constant butchering of scene transitions, it makes it hard for me to justify giving it a postive rating at all. As i've explained many times to people, its like they took a bunch of ideas which were cut out of a greater narrative, and pieced them together with scotch tape. I mean, the individual scenes are at often times good, but the unnatural pacing is jarring. The show is probably quite confusing for anime only's.

Re:Zero though, Honestly i hope this sparks interest in those few good LN series maybe finally getting an adaption, and i really hope for a continuation of Re:Zero after the 25 eps are up. There are still 3 more volumes of source material in the LN, and even more than that in the WN i think.

So what are your thoughts on the various shows this season?
FontSize72LOL Aug 17, 1:34 PM
I mean, the setting itself seems like it could have potential, and you're not going to flesh it out completely in one chapter/prologue so thats not really anything to worry about. I like gritty things as long as things are consistant. While i'm probably not the person to go for actual constructive criticism, At the very least it wasn't bad.

But yeah, Pathfinder is pretty interesting. Its basically Tabletop D&D but with a stricter rule-set. I really enjoy playing it, and I have a friend that has DMed it for years, and i'm currently in a pre-made campaign that is kind of interesting. Its kind of ironic since i'm not that big of an avid roleplayer, but stuff like that i tend to enjoy quite a bit. You just wont catch me RPing on an MMO or something.

To be fair, I only read chapters 700-801, I was telling Ryan that i should re-read the entire thing from atleast 1-700 just so i can feel a little less bad about adding it to my list. Honestly, the anime really falls apart at 522+, Its obvious they don't give a shit anymore, the plot and world building alone warrants a 10, but with that animation and presentation, i cant give the anime more than a 7. The cool thing is you can read 1-700 digitially colored, which is a much better experience than having it in black and white.

When it comes to any creative things, I have trouble actually organizing my thoughts. Like i'll often have many cool ideas for things, but they're ideas that are both on the macro and micro scale, and i have a hard time actually connecting them together. I feel like i'm trying to find a unified theory in physics here. On top of that, I always have those second thoughts like "Are these ideas even good?" and that is hard for me to get past sometimes.
FontSize72LOL Aug 17, 3:25 AM
Took a look at the prologue atleast, It wasn't bad, at the very least, i've seen much worse. I mean, I'm not much of a reader, and i'm cant say that i'm proficent when it comes to Creative writing so i'm not sure if i could give you any valuable feedback, since i'm pretty sure if i tried to write something like that, It would be much worse lol. I mean, I'd like to give better feedback than, "It wasn't bad", or "I wouldn't be able to write something that good, myself", but i don't know if i'd feel comfortable enough considering my lack of expertise in that area.

===========================================================================

That story reminded me of me wanting to DM a custom pathfinder campaign, and i want to create a world from scratch for it, but world building and coming up with the assets to supplement the setting is a daunting task. There is so much effort when it comes to actually creating a viable setting, with enough bare bones material that i could create a livable, believable world.

Honestly, I've tried a few times, and given up myself because i just couldn't get the ideas i wanted to a level i could go all in on it. I mean, I could host a prebuilt campaign but (to me) that isn't as fun as watching your players react to a setting you've made personally.

============================================================================

Also, I'm pretty much done reading the Dressrosa Arc, and almost done watching it. Honestly i wasn't going to read it, but i figured Ryan would fly up to Kansas and slap me in my face if i didn't. I'm not going to comment on the Post-Timeskip animation changes, but uh... yeah. Still, I think you should keep up with One Piece. Its a pretty excellent series, and honestly one of the better from an epic, ambitious, world building perspective. Watching/Reading it has given me many ideas for themes i could use in a potential campaign, but honestly, I don't know if i'll ever get around to actually putting one together (that i'm proud of, atleast).

It really sucks sometimes when it comes to creating something from your imagination and putting it out there, and you're often your worst critic, thinking "Man, i don't like how this is going", and being hesitant to show it to people, so kudos for posting your own story, atleast. You're braver than I, when it comes to that sort of thing.

(Sorry if this comes off as wordy/ranty, I'm pretty tired and i was going to go to bed, but i figured i shouldn't keep you hanging much longer)

I'd definitely get my hands on Ef right now, your recommendation completed my decision. Ever17 has been on my list for so long, but since it's part of a series (and I know I'd want to complete all of it) I'm having second thoughts because of the length. We'll see, though. Maybe one day. Thank you very much! ;)
Schala07 Aug 14, 1:10 PM
S;G was my first full VN and, same as you, it was the story that got me into VNs! Agghh, so many good VNs, so little time in this world. I hadn't read much VNs 'cause of the busy lifestyle I keep but I'm really open to exploring more. I've played (the same ones from your list) S;G, Chaos;Head, Planetarian, Rewrite, Fate/Stay Night, and a few more like G-Senjou no Maou, Narcissu 1&2, True Remembrance, and some other short ones. Before my break ends, I'd been wanting to play Ef - a fairy tale of two!
Schala07 Aug 14, 12:27 PM
Are the pictures in your About Me section the VNs you have played or something? Amazing, bro! ;)

Sorry for the super super late reply! I hate not responding, I've just been so lazy haha.

Nice! I actually bought myself a MacBook (like yesterday to be exact) which isn't really good for gaming but i wanted a good computer for college. Good luck with SnU, and let me know your thoughts on it after you play it! Speaking of vns, what's your opinion on the Rewrite and planetarian adaptions so far? Just curious considering you're a huge Key fan.

So I've heard, they really seem to be hyping it up! So much that it'll be released in the US first! I'm really excited to hear more info on that.

It's a good time to be a light novel reader in the US. Monogatari, Baccano, KonoSuba, Re:zero, Oregairu, all kinds of stuff is coming our way! And people thought it would be unprofitable haha. I watched the first episode of Hatsuoki Monster and it was soooooo bad. Stay far away from that if you haven't already. Are you watching Handa-kun? I completely forgot about it, but I won't watch it until it finishes cause I don't want to watch too many simulcasts. I used to watch much more and I kind of miss it, but time constraints. :/

How did you feel about the spring season overall? I ended up not watching much but there were some standouts. Best completed series for me was Flying Witch and Ushio & Tora S2, but Re:zero and Macross Dleta are definitely at the top of the list. I still can't believe I finished Mayoiga, and I'm glad I didn't watch Big Order lol. I can't imagine that what the BDs will bring for that though ( ═í° ═ť╩ľ ═í°)

Wow, I guess I need to jump on that hype train. Thats the one light novel I want to read, especially since its completed and doesn't have 20+ volumes. Any chance of it getting an anime adaption? Or would that be too complicated? Its okay! I'm not one to complain about people talking about things i haven't seen or read, I could give two shits about spoilers as well haha.

I said I would watch SAC first, but I went ahead and started Ergo Proxy haha. That's next on my list! (Should probably finish Chihayafuru and other stuff I put on hold first haha)
FontSize72LOL Jul 10, 10:26 PM
Yeah, i was telling a few people that they needed to catch up a little while ago. That episode had to be one of the best directed episodes i've seen in a while. The VA work from both Matsuoka and Kobayashi were steller, especially with the raw emotion and despair. This has to be among the purest un-adultrated suffering i've seen in quite some time.
