Mamoru-kun Wa Norowarete Shimatta! (Arcade), 2008
Yousuke Yasui

YMO much? I have heard some describe their influence on Japanese game music as broadly incalculable, but it’s cool to hear something a little more direct. Ryuichi Sakamoto dabbled in video games himself, composing the Dreamcast start-up noise (!!!), as well as writing the story and composing the soundtrack for one of my favorite games, L.O.L.: Lack Of Love (among others).

Mr. Yasui is still an active composer, so please support him! Throw money at his employers so he continues to make great soundtracks. Call him good names and bake him tasty cookies. Eschatos is coming to Steam this month, and so too is its incredible soundtrack in FLAC. I would love to post more of it, but I hope you just go buy it, instead!

And yes, this really is a NAOMI game, being one of the last games developed for it. When it was released, the hardware was a respectable ten years old!

JFC IMAGINE LOUIS AND HARRY LIKE WATCHING THEIR KID PLAY SOCCER AND HARRY IS ALL LIKE “OK DONT WORRY IF U WIN IF U DONT WIN WE STILL LOVE U” AND LOUIS IS LIKE “KICK THEIR ASSES” AND HARRY IS LIKE “LOUIS LANGUAGE” AND LOUIS JUST SMIRKS AND FISTBUMPS THE KID AND THEN THEY WATCH THEIR LIL BABY PLAY SOCCER AND UGH

Realistically speaking I don’t understand how tumbr staff can simply ignore posts where there’s 50k+ notes that say their update is bad… Like do they not know how to interact with the community and devise a more appropriate way of integrating updates? Like possibly letting people switch on or off that ugly reblog view…

lucas and smackle are such a real ship though. when smackle first met him, she assessed him within a few seconds and used him for her own purposes. think about lucas for a second. he’s been called perfect by so many people over the course of the show and for smackle to use him instead of try to get to him is a completely foreign territory. and now, after she’s been busted and the jig is up, she still so heavily associates him with romance that she assumes the moment he opens his mouth it has a romantic context. lucas just goes with it, and she’s a fairly refreshing change from the girls of his own school, most of whom just fall over him. instead she’s fiercely turning him down when he hasn’t even asked her out. it’s fun. so when smackle asks if he’ll ever give up trying to win her over, his letterman jacket draped over her shoulders, he just smiles and says “nope.”

pros and cons of d.gray-man

pros:

  • cool character designs
  • good world building
  • unique plot
  • incredible symbolism
  • large, diverse cast
  • interesting backstories
  • very few static characters
  • themes like being unsure of who you are, coming to terms with familial relationships, good vs evil wherein “good” and “evil” are both gray areas

cons:

  • the anime came out in 2008 so then you just get pages and pages of stuff like this:
