    Who needs Hitchcockian violin slashes when you have jingle bells?

    Hero Senki is a curious one, as it is technically canon with the SRT OGverse via Guilliam Yaeger and some alternate universe screwery. In short, the Guilliam Yaegar in Hero Senki and the Guilliam Yaegar in SRT OG are the same continuous person, much like Gilgamesh in FFV and FFVIII.

    Yeah, but so is Xenosaga, via the Endless Frontier games.

    In any case, if you look at the box art, it clearly says (in Japanese) "Konpachi Heroes", so the main point I was addressing in the column still stands

    I don't see anyone else having filled in the enormous gap in our SRT game pages. I see the Gespenst (a cute chibi version, but still) on the front of Project Olympus's box, too.
    It's not what he's eating, but what's eating him that makes it ... sort of interesting.

    Ok, can I blame Terada instead?

    Thanks for another smashing installment.
    I'm happy to hear that you don't have to hear Rap music. Always a plus.
    I appreciate the info on Ninokuni. How much button-mashing is necessary in battle? Is it like Tales? I tend to like games that don't require too much labor(bad hands).
    Finally, good luck on your JLPT's.
    *EDIT*
    Usually if you hit the Attack option, the character will have a 10 second period of auto-attack where he/she/it tries to whack the target as much as possible.
    That is music to my ears.

    You're going for N1, the highest level, right?

    No, not heavy on the button mashing (at least, nowhere near the level of the Tales series). Usually if you hit the Attack option, the character will have a 10 second period of auto-attack where he/she/it tries to whack the target as much as possible.

    And no, going for the N2. I can read quite a bit and communicate fairly well, but my actual grasp of higher grammar (for composition) isn't always up to snuff.

    That it is

    Made it all the more surprising to hear it over a 7-11 sound system
