Yeah, ffvii always seems to stick with people are the best ff, but I'm not sure exactly why! I did enjoy ffvii, but I didn't feel like it had anywhere near the same kind of impact as x; it felt more like just another jrpg I had fun with, it wasn't something I really loved and felt like was one of the best games I'd ever played. I think one of my favorite things about x was how human everything about the characters felt. People complain that the VAs sound unnatural/the motion capture is overexaggerated/everyone is too overdramatic, but to me it felt like all of the characters' reactions to things were a lot more human than in any other game I've played, including some of the sillier things like the body language and voice acting. A lot of it was flawed and unrefined in the same way that real people are, you know? I think that's a really good quality xv has going for it, too, especially with Noctis himself. and I see you like xv too! Are you looking forward to the new character dlc? I was surprised they didn't tease any of it at e3 this year!
I don't get why the Tidus laugh scene ended up as famous as it did either! like, I can get thinking it's funny and all, but it seems like a lot of people wanna use it as an example of bad dubbing/writing, and it's like... did they play the game?? There was context behind the scene?? but now it seems to be all x is known for! It's so silly that his VA had to make a video explaining it!
They might've rereleased it! Though you'd think they'd rerelease the Tidus one if they were gonna rerelease one of the necklaces, since that one's so much more iconic. Maybe they rereleased them both and the Yuna one's the only one left in stock..???
Gurren Lagann's been on my to watch list for years, but I'm so slow at watching anime that I've never gotten around to it! I should really give it a shot sometime soon, it seems like it'd be something I'd enjoy! Madoka's my main collection and has been since I started collecting. I mostly try and limit myself to only buying Madoka stuff + whatever merch I like from videogames I enjoy, since there's so much less of that out there than there is anime merch. If I could I'd like to expand my ffx collection next, but it's so hard to find a lot of the merch! the Koto scales aren't too hard to find and look nice as a set, but it really bothers me that they made everyone but Wakka...??
