Re: MAGIUS - Magic School LUNAR! RPG

Yeah, I feel like the cover illo is striking a balance between her style and Kubooka's. The bodies and poses seem kind of like hers, but the eye shape seems more like his. That one of Barua and Memphis (? haven't played MSL yet) does look more like her, but the faces of the girls in the last one you...

Re: Book of the Moment

I don't do much reading these days outside of textbooks and such, because i get so engrossed in novels that I become nonresponsive to spouse, which freaks him out. So I have to ration them carefully. Last books I read were probably the two Lady Astronaut books by Mary Robinette Kowal (The Calculatin...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Spouse and I have been playing Stardew Valley (he plays, I knit). Just started year 3. I've been using my old iPhone 4 as an iPod, since I now have a car without a CD player and I'd put at least fifty CDs of game soundtracks on that phone back when I could take public transport. The interface contin...

Re: MAGIUS - Magic School LUNAR! RPG

That's a nicely rare thing to get. I think I've only seen about three of them for sale ever, and I bought two of them (for myself and for Kizyr here). I also managed to find the MAGIUS guidebook for him, as I neither read Japanese (much) or play TTRPGs, and he does both. However, one of the unfortun...

Re: Shin Sakura Taisen fanart - Amamiya Sakura

Nice to see some of your work again! I have been curious about Sakura Taisen for years -- in part because of your obsession with it back in the day at the WDMB ^_^ -- but never got any of the games. With the English patch out for the first (?) one I might have to give it a try, in my copious free ti...

Re: Mega CD Lunar Eternal Blue (Not For Resale) Demo

I know we have a thread on this demo somewhere; I remember Shiva Indis pointing out how the character portraits have changed. I thought we had some info on the site too about it, but can't look right now.

Re: Japanese name/reference for Magic Tester?

I had just been wondering about that honor roll line. I don't remember all of them, but two (in the English game) are Meg and Lalabo. I don't remember the rest, but they were more typical names. Will have to look it up when I have time.

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

Haha, I remember Angelalex arguing that the Star Dragon was Lucia's dragon when he first joined here. Given how the Phantom Sentry scolds Lucia in EB, I don't know if I'd see him as being "hers" so much as that they -- dragons, Lucia, Althena -- are all part of a team. Perhaps to safeguard...

Re: Who is your favorite?

It would, but that restriction doesn't exist in TSS. ^_^ Nor is there any restriction on using items in the Cave of Trial. However, Alex does do the cave alone (because Luna stays on Caldor Isle when he goes to Meribia and is never in the party again), and it's rather difficult to pass the bosses if...

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

I can't say that ever occurred to me. This is why I love when new people discover this forum; they come up with things we old folk might never have thought of, or last thought of a decade or two ago. ^_^ It might interest you to know that the Star Dragon shows up a couple more times in the SegaCD ga...

Re: Who is your favorite?

Yeah, Alex definitely talks less in the other versions of the games. Although in the SegaCD game his dialogue was often a couple rows of "............" which was supposed to suggest that he was talking but the exact words weren't transcribed (as opposed to ... ... ... which is more eloquen...

Re: Lost Song Reminded Me of Lunar

I see the resemblance to the main SSH artwork in that there's a fairly sharp divide between blue tones and orange tones and a lot of curvature.

Re: Who is your favorite?

For Silver Star: Alex. As a kid, getting Alex to become a DragonMaster was very cool. And he has such a dignified pose (not to mention the post battle song is very very cool) and his skills always seemed cool to me. I'm curious, are you basing this more on the GBA game (LL) or the iOS one (SSS)? On...

Re: On Althenas actions.

Some of your last note is an artifact of translation. In the Japanese EBC, Luna's note doesn't mention Hiro by name; she just foresees that Lucia will have found someone (much as her recording in the Goddess Tower does, when she says Lucia must have had good friends to have gotten there). Also, in J...

Dude. I just said I didn't care for the line. It was hardly a critique of the entire game or the company as a whole. Things aren't all or nothing, you know? You yourself said that you find some things offensive but you still love the game a whole lot; why would you assume I didn't feel the same? For...

Re: What is Canon?

I'm almost certain I saw references in SSS to events in the Vheen manga, or at least implications thereof. I'll have to go through my notes to find them.
