I remember people talking about Tower of God here years ago, like so long that I'm surprised it's still going. I don't remember where I left off, but it was relatively early in.

I remember talking about it when it was still pretty early, like it was still only 30 chapters or so. I dropped it some time after that, but I don't remember why.

Also, apparently FFXV has a movie and miniseries that I need to watch in order to understand the plot?

Of course, I'm still around chapter 5 of a 15 chapter game, so the plot might end up being complete and those would be supplementary things. But all the research I did points to the movie being integral to the game's backstory and lore. The miniseries are apparently just mostly some short episodes to flesh out the chocobros, which I can understand.

But I'm not sure how I feel about a game that has to cut out vital elements of the plot, and can't manage to say what it needs to say within the game itself.

I'm just glad that the short fad of games being this big multimedia thing a while ago hasn't really caught on.

I haven't played FFXV but as I understood it, a movie(s?) came out before the game giving some backstory about the main characters dad and the main guy's childhood and the political situation but I think you can still gather most of that from playing the game and it isn't vital info. The movie was really poorly rated so it might just be better to read a summary and skip it.

The first 79 chapters are basically prologue. They don't even introduce the power systems and stuff until like 60 and they don't delve far into it until season 2.

I really wish this was an anime even more than solo leveling because even though the art is great, the action is a bit hard to follow just due to the nature of how all the powers and systems work. Seeing it animated would make it a lot easier to follow the action. Oh well, it's korean so pretty much no chance of that.

So I watched the Kingsglaive movie and it was... okay.

I honestly expected more backstories and stuff about the main four, but it's really just about the one day that happens in the main game once you left the city.

Though it definitely feels like you're supposed to watch it AFTER chapter 1 and not as a prologue.

There's a couple of concepts in the movie that you would really only get and appreciate if you've played the game first.

Other than that, everything was, like I said, okay. The voice acting was great, and I really appreciate that they animated the lip-syncing to the dub as well.

Really, the only meaningful character backstory or lore that I got out of it was that the king was a badass. You only briefly see it in the game but here you really see that, woah, he really deserves the command and respect of the throne.

So yeah, I guess the next thing I have to watch is the short anime series Brotherhood. The thread on reddit said that I'm supposed to watch that after Chapter 7 in the game, so I have a way to go before I do that, since I'm still on chapter 5.

Eiyuu Senki has been pretty decent so far. It's kind of like Sengoku Rance, but streamlined and you're aiming for the world, rather than just Japan. Been very little in the way of ero scenes though.

Final Fantasy XV. Because Nomura and friends are so good at wasting huge amounts of money on Development Hell that they need endless tie-ins just to keep the lights on at Square Enix. ... IMO, you'd be better off watching grass grow. But I'm biased.

Still picking at EON while I look for a second job.

That's such a strange thing for them to even do. I almost wonder if it's actually vindictive or just some weird policy from early on they never bothered rethinking. Oh well, if my game development gets off the ground at least it'll be easy to generate goodwill with how all the other companies act.

You know, it's never really talked about much, but English dubbed OPs were pretty good if done well.

Now, with the boom of anime culture in recent years, it's getting easier and easier to find passionate people who can really put their all into making a dub of an OP sound just as good as the original.

EDIT: And here's the original for comparison

And I gotta say, I actually kinda like the english one better a little bit! I feel like they have much more energy and enthusiasm in their delivery.

Of course, that might just be because I can actually understand what they're saying.
