The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky

The real gems of this game are the field and turbo boosters. Even with the game running six times the normal speed, I still have a complete time of 60 hours. I could not imagine finishing this game without it.

I’d say for 80% of the game I was just going through the motion. The story and characters were okay, nothing standing out for a long time. It’s the last 20% when I began to get a taste as to why people revere these games as much as they do. The story was coming together and really intriguing. Yes it ends on a huge cliff hanger but whatever, nothing throwing $20 for the sequel can’t solve.

The battle system is okay, what can I say, it’s running at six times the normal speed. How people trudged through this without boosters is insane. I wish the chibi characters wasn’t a thing, but oh well. Off to the sequel I go.

Vinland Saga

Vinland Saga

Surprising Vinland Saga took this long to get an anime adaptation. I read the manga years ago and I still have the same problem with this as I had then and that’s my lack of knowledge of European history and basic geography which lessens my enjoyment of the show. So pretty much ironically the most awful people Thorkell and Askeladd were the only reasons I kept watching. Well there’s not many morally right people in this show to begin with anyway. Thorfinn? He’s a lost cause since episode one. He’s rough to watch. He doesn’t change much until the next season if there is one.
