Worlds of Light

    Rune Factory! Yes that’s right. I wonder how I forgot that.

    There may well be an English version of Ever Oasis now or soon. Major games usually get translated and this one seems pretty major. I found out about it from a friend and then from my 3DS which is a Japanese one.

    Miss Sushuri, I think I know which one you mean. Is it Rune Factory? I haven’t played any of that series yet, but I’d really like to.

    Thank you for the recommendation! Unfortunately I am hopeless at Japanese, but if I can find a Let’s Play of it by an English-speaking person I’m going to watch that :)

    I played Harvest Moon a long time ago, on the old Gamebaby Color. I have’t played anything in the series since – there is also a connected game that combines farming life with a touch of RPG adventuring I seem to remember, but I forget the name.

    I think they are truly lovely games because they depict peace and harmony and goodness in a truly…[Read more]

    Rayati! I am so glad this board exists, because there is a game series I have to share with you all. Have any of you played it?

    The series is called Story of Seasons, formerly Harvest Moon (there was a schism and another company now makes games called Harvest Moon which aren’t as good, while the original group now creates Story of Seasons games…[Read more]

  • I can certainly see that. I think perhaps what I like so much about them is the happy endings. They show that in the end good triumphs even when things look very terrible indeed for awhile, which is very comforting when one lives in Telluria

    Rayati!
    Without passing judgement on any maid and her media preferences, I must confess that I prefer to avoid scary kinnies of late. I used to absolutely love them, but I’m starting to find them quite horrific and am unable to finish even short clips of them.
    My concern, personally, is the desensitization that I believe comes with viewing such…[Read more]

    `I can’t say I’ve watched any modern scary things, and that is because I always suspect that they will be bad-natured. Of course, not having watched them I am not in a position to say whether that is true or not, but that is my suspicion.

    My criterion is very simple. I am sure some people would say simple-minded. Is it good? Is it on the side of…[Read more]

  • I’ve always loved Quirrie and Trentish radio shows (especially the mystery stories and scary ones) and I’ve recently been watching the Inner Sanctum Mystery movie series and it made me think about how gentle and racinated even scary things can be. They nearly always have happy endings and a reminder that even when things sometimes get quite scary…[Read more]

  • I have just seen the first episode of Mahou Tsukai Precure. It seems in some ways radically different from previous Precures, with one of the main characters being a magic-user (mahou tsukai). She is dressed as a cute version of a witch, though she is not a “witch” in the traditional Western sense. There isn’t really a good translation of what she…[Read more]

  • Oh how interesting. I wondered how they would manage that episode. I do not really know what you are talking about with CGI, but there is a lot I do not know.

    I did not know that they changed the music every few episodes. In Precure, they usually change the ending song at around the second half of the series, and sometimes do a second verse of…[Read more]

  • The divergence continues!

    I just finished the Osaka Smile episode and its counterpart Glitter Force episode. Smile was, of course, adorable and lovely. I loved how Yayoi-chan made it a mission to rescue the Princesses (two Brunettes and a Blonde!). And how she and Miyuki-chan ended up the ones who needed rescuing at the end. Of course, our…[Read more]

  • Wagamama etymologically means “the self as it is, unchanged”. 我が waga=self, I まま mama = as it is, unchanged. So I think the original implication is the self in all its self-ness unchanged by any higher effort or aspiration.

    This self-as-it is, wagamama, I think may be in many cases precisely the “self” that one is supposed to “stand up for” in W…[Read more]

  • It’s so interesting that you mention the lack of conflict in a West Tellurian sense. I have long thought that West Tellurian-style conflict is too much, too harsh. But in that mindset, I could not see how a proper story could be told without it, even though I wished it weren’t present.

    I did find Usagi-chan to be very wagamama– I had to look…[Read more]
