There's supposed to be a new Konosuba project in the future. That's about all I know. Think it's a different studio though.

I think the movie was also a different studio than the first 2 seasons.

I'm hoping its an anime series and not a movie so there can be more story.

In the game front, the two that really stand out are FFT:WotL and tactics ogre: let us cling together. something like those would be great, not that it really needs to be a tactical rpg, but the overall story and approach to it although both end up more magical than I'd like.
Suikoden games, Valkyria Chronicles, The Legend of Heroes games maybe? It's kinda hard for me to remember what everyone's already played lol

Suikoden may be a good thing to check out. I know I played one of em way back, either 2 or 3 I think, but I don't remember much. I've dropped valkyria chronicles and valkyria chronicles 4 before. I don't really know why, but I just do not enjoy the game play of it. I also don't like xcom which is kind of similar so I guess that style just doesn't do it for me. I remember liking the anime though.

Maybe it's different in further entires, but trails in the sky 1 and cold steel 1 don't offer the perspective I'm looking for, at least early on. I didn't finish either of those either. It's weird, i enjoy that series but it's almost like theres too much good supplemental information. I feel like I need to talk to every NPC at every part of the game and it ends up killing the pace. The combat in trails 1 is also too damn slow to where it feels really tedious in fights that aren't difficult.

I wish there was a game with tactics ogre/FFT story, dynasty warriors battles, and nioh combat, but also better than those games at each of those aspects.

I was thinking of rewatching Pumpkin Scissors. It's more along the lines of post-war, but still good. A lot of people say it's a mix of early episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist (military do-gooders) and Trigun (powerful nice guy protagonist with mysterious past).

I remember absolutely nothing about that show, but I think I liked it.

Pretty sure there's a speedhack built into PC trails in the sky to make the game go super fast. I personally used cheat engine when I originally played the PSP version.

Cold Steel especially turns into what you want after the first game, probably, but even though I talk about trails so much, I've still not finished sky 2 or steel 2......

You have a good beat on how the series works.
  1. Sky FC is in fact slow. I have two friends going through FC right now and one going through SC (person playing SC played through all of Cold Steel first). The one of the FC players had a really rough time through the first few chapters and then suddenly was on Chapter 5. The game has a very slow start and FC/SC have a different kind of difficulty curve that the other games don't necessarily have.
  2. When I started the series (I started with FC) I did not talk to every single NPC between story segments. By the time I got to Cold Steel 3 I was talking to every single NPC between story segments. I'm 103 hours into CS4 (I won't be able to finish it for a while due to the new Path of Exile league). The game series is specifically made that you can talk to everyone if you want without much punishment if you don't, but by the time CS4 rolls around (I mean you're like 500+ hours in at this point, CS2/CS3/CS4 are 100+ hour games...) you're probably going to want to anyways.
  3. The pacing issues are still there. I frequently stop during transitions between "story segments" and "exploration segments" to keep the pacing. "exploration segments" are my "chores", but there are some NPCs (e.g. Anton who is in almost every game in the series) which are fun to keep tabs on. I tend to skip dialog for NPCs I don't really care much about.
  4. CS includes the Bond system which is like Social Links in Persona to add even more to this fire (you even get some unique accessories at the end of CS4). Really helps to stick with characters here you actually like. Don't feel obligated to save scum. Then again, my "main girl" in all of these games was Towa, which apparently is one of the least popular characters based on achievement stats.
tldr: The series really just is not for everyone.

I don't think that fits any of my favorites =x All of the anime I think of as favorites have a lot of very distinct memories. I think the closest could be Tokko, but it's sliding out of my favorites because there are so many other things that left a more distinct impression. Actually, as I stop really remembering things, they usually stop being favorites.

More fun with One Step from Eden glitches; any kind of potion that can be caught (healing, gaining shield, etc.) can have its effect triggered more than once if you rapidly move into and out of the space that it lands on while it's still active. Obviously this is easier to do while gameplay is slowed. I've managed to gain 320 shield from using Absorb just once.

It's one of the things I most enjoy about games; finding things I'm not supposed to do.

That glitch doesn't work with everything; it won't work with heals thrown by hostages or chests. But it does work with Violette's dance steps, so you can gain crazy amounts of shield during her fight.

BLEACH manga is back with a special 20th anniversary chapter worth 73 pages. Will be released early next month in the usual WSJ magazine but spoilers should be around before then. I hope it's not some cringe Boruto crap focusing on Ichigo/Orihime and Rukia/Renji children.

I just found this and thought it was really cool.

https://www.sonicstadium.org/2021/06/dreams-come-true-releasing-vocal-green-hill-zone-single/amp/

Dreams Come True is like my second favorite artist/group, and they actually composed the music in the classic Sonic games. It's awesome they're doing a vocal version for Sonic's anniversary.

The music was a big selling point for Sonic back in the day. It still bops.

I noticed that Crunchyroll randomly picked up at least some of the Strike the Blood OAVs. Will have to see if they are censored.

Jahy finally started. No idea why it didn't start until this late in the season but oh well. It was a solid first episode.

Realist hero continues to be fun but man, it feels like every episode is 2 minutes long. Like the current episode, he ate some noodles, he talked to the old prime minister, and he ate some more noodles at a cafe. Somehow that took 22 minutes. And it's not like it felt slow while I was watching it. Good show though. Not great, but easy to watch and enjoyable enough.

Sorta on topic I've been playing that new pokemon moba. Turns out even a casual moba with 10 minute matches for 8 year olds is infuriating to have bad teammates in. I say for 8 year olds but it's probably more people around my age. Kinda wish they had a single player or co-op pokemon game with this same style of combat. I've been wishing they would do that with league for ages ever since the odyssey game mode they had during an event a few years back. I guess something like diablo or PoE are similar, but it's not quite the same.

So I wound up buying volumes 1-3 of that manga I was talking about earlier, but I held off on volume 4 because it cost a lot more. Then literally days after, a volume 1-4 bundle pops up for less than the price of just volume 4 anywhere else.

I've been holding off on this for years...

Kanojo mo kanojo is stupid. I love it. Also I feel like for the first time ever in a harem anime I saw the male lead fall down unrealistically and NOT land on a girl despite there being 3 nearby. Instead he fucking faceplanted on the concrete right next to them. Hilarious.

Oh and kingdom is still great.

I looked into it a bit more, and CR has the first two sets of OAVs. The third and fourth are still missing, alas.

It has been a while, I'm still around, stalking the shadows~

Here's hoping CR will be able to grab the entire sets soon enough.

Now
Onto some random ramblings about some of last seasons anime's:
Seven deadly sins went from being a really fun series to an absolute mess and now I never want to think about it ever again, they dropped the ball so hard it went through the Earth's core

Hige wo Soru was one I went into with a level of caution, the subject matter was a tricky one that I wasn't sure would be handled correctly. After finishing it however I was pleased to see that such worries were unfounded, it's an interesting watch and one I would recommend if you are looking for something quite a bit different from the norm in the anime world

How not to summon a demon lord S2 was um, a complete guilty pleasure, it knows damn well what it is and embraces it, would rec so long as you close the curtains and lock the door first! (heh)

Mashiro no Oto was technically my first music series (I don't really count "Your lie in April") and it was actually really good, the shamisen performances were excellent and I would happily watch more of it

Shakunetsu Kabaddi ended up being a lot of fun to watch, my only complaint is that there isn't more of it tbqh

It's Too Sick to Call this Love was another one where I was worried about how they'd handle the subject matter but again ended up enjoying it a lot despite the weirdness of it in general

So I'm a Spider was um, quite painful to watch, even putting aside the questionable (at best) CG monsters the writing and dialogue annoyed me an awful lot, the human characters were as generic as can be and the spider really needed to shut up because damn, the jokes/gags were way too try hard for my liking. I ended up feeling disappointed by the end because the actual ideas were there, it's just the execution that was sorely lacking.

All in all though it was a fairly decent season for me, now onwards to the end of Summer so I can have more to see

Slime is starting to take the piss. They've been having a meeting for 5 episodes. I like them to develop the plot and stuff but like, move it along. There weren't 5 episodes worth of things to discuss, they just really dragged it out.

I hope next anime season is better. The only thing to exceed my expectations this season was kanojo mo kanojo but that show is more like a guilty pleasure than actually good. Meanwhile a ton of things feel like a let down.
