Hi there, it’s been awhile.
Allow me to talk a tale of a foolish man. It would be 56 days before today, no…or was it 49 Mayan Days and 7 Gregorian, oh well. It was like yesterday to me, but for you guys, it would probably be….a long interval.
“You sure that’s enough post to keep the blog alive?”
“No problem. Everything’s fine.”
He had many ideas for a post, if only he put it down in words. Well, ideas. Not necessary good ones.
There were delicious ideas,
Then there were DELISHUZ ideas.
There were intriguing ones,
But it turned out to be a meticulous one.
After which, he thought he would be safe
But alas, the wraiths from the deep abyss that is his past runs deep in his blood, and he fell victim to the disease that he so oft chaffed about that he made a (delusional) fan fiction about.
‘Tis the tale of a fool. So one must note that, death is not a hunter unbeknownst to its prey.
That being said, I actually do have something today to rave about, and is the reason why I got motivated again to write.
Do you guys know that, Rakuen’s trial is out? That’s right, I just finished playing it and, as always, the trial left me wanting for MOAR.
Just a bit of timed passed since the shocking reveal in Labyrinth, Yuuji is seen doing terrorist activities on TV. Mihama academy is closed down, indefinitely. The terrorist is suspected of bringing weapons of mass destruction, and it seems as if the Japanese government is tied up in political struggles so they have to negotiate a really stupid deal. Yuuji himself seeks a place to rest (in peace). The (main) heroine that everyone likes is back, but perhaps not exactly as good as it sounds. This promo movie will probably just demonstrate how crazy (exciting) things are going to go:
Playing the demo just reminded me how much I loved the Grisaia series again. From all the lovable heroines (I MISSED MICHIRUUUUUU SO MUCH, CHIRUCHIRU KUNKAKUNKA HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA), to the great supporting characters, to the enigmatic past of “Kazama Yuuji”, to the overarching plot that starts to tie it all together. To me, Grisaia is one of the works that I have no problem in recommending as a masterpiece as it has displayed incredible consistent quality throughout all three installments.
One of such qualities is our protagonist, Yuuji. Now, there is this rather popular (for good or bad reasons) protagonist right now in the industry that seems to have everything, be able to do everything and literally is the strongest of his world. While I am not trying to compare the two, I do think Yuuji is one where the somewhat superhuman individual template was done well. The more I dig into his past, the more I understand how (or want to understand) he achieved that greatness as he seems to be more and more human the more I learn about him, and the more I sympathize with him. It really moves to have seen the diary on the walls, and just to imagine him hugging knees in the closet.
Well, my other reason for liking Grisaia so much, is a rather biased one. As I seem to have developed a strong liking towards a character (not uncommon for me :P), and I can’t help but cheer for her success, even though it is clear it’ll be unrequited ;_;. (You can do it, Michiru! Even though you aren’t as combat oriented as Sacchi and Makina, not as calm/collected/operator-like as Yumiko, not as much a cook as Amane, I still believe there’s SOMETHING they’ll let you do! SOMETHING!) Also hoping Yuria gets her much deserved happiness in this finale, such a hard working dedicated (German) waifu. GOGO KINPATSU TEAM.
I might be jumping the gun here, but I think it’ll be a blast. Really nice to see Grisaia coming together.
