The Tantalus Theater Review needs you! I’m putting together a new zine dedicated to FFIX, probably one of the greatest and most underrated games of all time! It’s going to be a full color, digest sized zine (which is about 5.5 x 8.5 inches), and it will feature drawings and…
alkdfjaksdha I am going to MAKE TIME for this. :| I love FFIX with a burning passion. Now to figure out what to do.
I finished watching the final two eps. this week. My thoughts?
It was enjoyable. The story was good, I cared about the cast, and the action scenes were exceptional. What really caught me was the supporting characters. Yeah, I liked the dynamic between Kotetsu and Barnaby. It was a nice twist on the seasoned veteran and the new guy. But the other heroes stole the show. I’m glad most of them got dedicated episodes (except Rock Bison. What the hell, man?). Kaede was irritating at first, but I’m really happy she saw her father as a hero towards the end. Poor guy needs more love. Srsly.
It felt like an anime with a lot of US cartoon influence, but what really annoyed me was the CG effects with their suits. It was so jarring it wasn’t even funny. Thankfully the action was distracting enough for me to ignore it.
All in all, I liked it. I give it two thumbs up. Three if you count Origami Cyclone.
