You doing well Nii? Staying healthy? I'm pretty fine aside from sudden colder days and rain. Got quite soaked a week ago despite umbrella because the rain was too strong.

About the last segment, I think you're not supposed to clear it on your own. It's probably not 100% impossible, but your memory getting wiped to help others is a vital part of this ending. If it was relatively easy to do, it would defeat the point in my eyes. Never really looked into it lol, kinda curious if someone managed to clear it on his own.
Just checked and there are videos of people doing it solo. Unfortunately they all cut off before I get to see if anything in the ending is different after the segment ends. Looks very hard to do but somehow possible, so I wonder if it still gives you the same offer with deleting save or not.

Reminds me, did you do all of the endings? Like everything from A-Z. There's some good stuff in there, though at least one is more enjoyable if you play Replicant first.
And lol I get you, it's a pretty unique concept no one else really does. But I think that makes it all the better.
No, I noticed they weren't much "endings". Game goes black, you get 1 text box and fast credits roll. I think I watched them in youtube later. While some had funny text describing what happens, they're not as big a deal as a proper "bad" ending like in some other games with cutscenes. Any you recommend seeing again if I missed?

Hmmm it's been a while, but yeah, I think 2B's development was more subtle. The game gives you enough insight and hints about her feelings etc. though, in my eyes. It just can be more easily missed. A2 was more obvious on that front, probably mostly thanks to her being a lot more outspoken and aggressive. I like them both, but as you know, I prefer 2B by a lot :p
We're on different sides of the A2-2B spectrum it seems. I know you like 2B more but what are your thoughts on A2, or rather, what are your favorites in order, or at least a top 3?

True, the pod's were really cool xD (especially 2B's) The commander didn't leave that much of an impression on me, either. It's actually one of the few flaws of the game in my eyes, namely that not enough characters get fleshed out, or more of a spotlight. Most of the Yorha units remain relatively bland, which is a shame.
Indeed, the game lacked a more relevant cast of characters beyond the playable ones and Pascal. You see some people in the sidequests with fun/weird personalities that make up for it somewhat though, so the world doesn't feel bland.

Haha I had to answer all of it anyway, even though I'm way too late. Sorry for that :(
And yes, already played the remaster by the time you asked lol. Think overall it was done really well, though it's age and design flaws still show. Don't expect something on the same level as Automata, but it is a good game and very important to the overall story, so I hope you'll check it out eventually. Or maybe you already have? :XD
I actually haven't, got distracted along the way with some other games like Sekiro. But it's still on my list to play, though I read what fans think and some do say that Automata is a better game in terms of gameplay at least. Won't let it discourage me.

Just caught up with Ousama Ranking, it‘s really interesting. Didn‘t think I‘d like it but so far it‘s doing everything right. I‘m only worried if it‘ll be able to keep it up, I had it far too many times that I liked a new weekly anime just for it to collapse. :nomoar But, will be optimistic so far.

Next episode should come tomorrow maybe no? :nrr

Yeah I was sceptic about it at first too, but I think the writing's quite unique and strong. Sort of feels like an anime take on a fairytale kinda story. Also you can't help but root for Boji. Enjoyed how the step mother isn't evil for once lol, and how that was hinted at early on (like in EP1 you can already see she understands sign language).
Also, it's true that sticking to the landing is the most difficult part, happens with any kind of story way too often... no matter if anime, manga, TV series, etc. But I have faith for now haha.

And the episode actually aired today : D Didn't watch it yet, but looking forward to your thoughts :3

In case you haven‘t seen it yet

Uh this anime is really good at subverting expectations, mainly regarding characters, creating some beautifully complex characters in the best way possible. Most characters have some things to both like and dislike about them, but it‘s especially interesting how they choose which scenes they show to the viewer first so as to manipulate their first impressions.

This one did so for Apeas. I liked him at first and was wondering where his character would go, but being somewhat subservient to the (presumably evil) mirror isn‘t quite what I‘d wished of him. So I may not like him after all.

Not surprising that they made Daida drink it, was bound to happen imo. Feels bad for Daida, especially with the mirror confirming that it really isn‘t just something to give strength, it could have all sorts of nasty to downright horrorful effects. Though I must wonder, to which end does this lead? Since the Daida and Bojji plot is so different currently(as felt in the episode when they switched from one’s scene to the other’s) it‘s hard to imagine them meeting again anytime soon. So whatever happens with the Kingdom will be hard to watch as there won‘t be any „hero“ fixing any messes anytime soon I feel.

Though with how much this show contradicts one‘s expectations Bojji may yet become the bad guy, while the Mirror was some hero with a noble cause all along 🤷‍♂️ So I‘ll be curious and cautious.

One more thing, did I just imagine it or didn‘t the Underworld king mention something about Bojji being cursed to remain weak and small in Ep 5? Yet in this ep it wasn‘t touched upon at all surprisingly. Either I remembered wrong, or he didn‘t mean the cursed part literally, or they‘re purposefully leaving it out to be expanded on later. Either with the king‘s brother or upcoming plottwists. The red demon after the king died that pointed at Bojji(before the will was read, mind you) is also still bothering me.

Oh I wrote too much, will end it at this for now.

Again kinda late, sorry Gry D:

You bring up some good points

Totally with you on the characters, no one's exactly like what you think at first. Apeas is a good example of someone who seemed badass, but actually isn't lol. Or at least not as much as most viewers had though. I've seen a little bit more of him in the manga (the flashback is a bit longer IIRC), so I feel like he will continue on this not so great path.

And yaah it had to happen, the mirror woman felt too smart anyway to entirely rely on the decision of a kid. Think the Joffrey comparison is obvious at first, but even a pretty self-absorbed kid like Daida actually has his good sides. So I feel more sorry for him than actual anger or whatever. Clearly he's been pretty jealous of Boji in general, that he remembered his own mother comforting/protecting Boji speaks volumes.

Pace feels very fast indeed, but it doesn't feel like too much. And I kinda like that Boji isn't there to fix things, and won't anytime soon from the looks of it. Makes things more unpredictable. Really doubt Boji will turn out to be evil, but I'm sure there's more to this mirror woman than mysterious evil lady, yeah.

About that curse thing, I actually know a little more than you. The manga scans are behind the anime, but there's a special chapter relatively early on, where we learn the most important stuff about King Bose's past, and there this whole thing gets pretty much explained. Won't say anything more though, your decision if you wanna check that out or not. I guess the anime is willingly holding it back, as it answers one or two core mysteries pretty clearly.

Think that answers everything, tried to kept it short xD Btw Gry, I was thinking of 13 Sentinels today. Did you play that game? If not, I think you might like it.

Hm I‘d disagree it‘s really jealousy. At least not only, or not at the start. After those flashbacks Daida isn‘t angry but iirc he said something that made it look like he is burdening himself to help/protect his brother, and doing it all out of „love/admiration“ kinda. Hm but would need to rewatch that to make sure.

No no don‘t tell me. I‘ll choose to believe in the animation staff, that they know what they‘re doing and withholding things with a good plan rather than not(hope this doesn‘t age badly). Besides it could come up in the meeting with Desha‘s brother soon-ish.

Btw Gry, I was thinking of 13 Sentinels today. Did you play that game? If not, I think you might like it.
No never heard of it actually. What kind of game is it, and why do you think I‘d like it? From quick image search it‘s a bit hard to discern the gameplay.
