I bought and started playing this game on the Vita around the beginning of August. I initially thought it might just be a temporary distraction before I put it aside in favour of some shinier game, but not only did Tokyo Xanadu turn out to be a very shiny game in its own right, but I found myself getting super invested in it -- and after about a month and a half, during which I clocked up about 80 hours of playtime, I finished my first playthrough last weekend!

As much as I love this game, it sadly doesn't seem to have gotten much fandom attention, so I thought I'd write a gushy post (not a formal review by any means) talking about why I'm so bloody fond of it; I'm hoping it might encourage more people to give the game a try, along with calling out to existing fans. :3

Cue the spoiler-free gushing! )

I started playing Trails of Cold Steel shortly after beating TX, and I'm enjoying that so far as well. I guess I'm steadily falling into Falcom hell!

Leave two ships in my replies and I'll choose which I ship more. :)

Well, here I come again to talk about Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu's 11th episode, which honestly broke my heart AGAIN. Ufotable doesn't wastes time in making their viewers suffer, and while Katsugeki started to get serious from episode 5 and foward and emotional from episode 9 and foward, it's in "THIS" episode in particular that you genuinely want to cry your eyes out. It even left me wonder that, since Touken Ranbu is a game developed by Nitroplus and they had an input in this anime series, if Butch Gen is uncredited-ed behind this, specially in certain scene near the end that sounded like a very Urobuchi-ish conversation, in my opinion.
