    • Hey, did you know that Nathan Filion starred in an Uncharted Film?

      Well, you do now!


      This is being declared as a fan film by those involved, but I see what this really is.  It's a pitch to make an Uncharted film with Filion as Drake.  And after seeing this, I can totally see that being the case.  So get on this, Sony!


      In F/GO news, if you check out the news section in the app, we're getting the Camelot 2 banner as soon as the anniversary event ends.  It's going to run until 08/01.  This is a rather long time for a rate up banner, so either we're getting some overlap with the Summer event (which I predict to start next week), or we're waiting until August.  Either way, the wait continues.  Though we are getting a 1/2 AP free quest week for all our farming needs.  Need to get lots of Fool's Chains for Ozy.


      In FEH, I'm still taking my shot at the second summer banner.  I've gotten three five stars from it... and not a single one of them were the summer servants.  Like, seriously?  Seriously!?  What kind of terrible good luck is that?  I'll keep trying, but come on!


      And lastly, images have been posted for your viewing pleasure.

    • Violet Evergarden Episode 8

      2 days ago

      CaButler

      Hello everybody and welcome to our next exciting episode of Violet Evergarden, the show about a girl suddenly learning all the human emotions at once, and came crashing down as a result.

      In our last episode, Violet's latest client is a playwright by the name of Oscar, who is working on his first play in a very long time. It's a Children's story, which seems to have a deep connection to him, but the man himself appears to be lost, aimless, and going through the motions. During his time with Violet, though, who is very interested in the play, he begins to see his late daughter in her, who herself had dreams of her own before dying of an unknown illness. She was happy and full of life, and with Violet's help, is able to drive his story towards the happy ending, getting his own in the form of Violet trying to cross a lake. It didn't end as he hoped, but it was enough to give him something he lacked in a very long time. Hope and motivations.

      As for Violet, all those human emotions that she knew little of came crashing down hard as she comes to regret her actions in the war, with all the lives she took. On her way home, she runs into Lady Evergarden, who is happy to see how far Violet has grown and thinks Major Gilbert can rest in peace. This, however, bothers Violet, because she was under the assumption that the major was alive. When she confronts Hodgins, all he can say is that they found her alone, and that the major was missing in action and presumed dead. Violet clings onto this as her only hope, running out of the post office, lost in her own direction once more.

      How will Violet recover from this? Will Hodgins be able to correct his mistake? Let's tune in and find out.

      -Our episode begins with the first meeting between Major Gilbert and Violet as Diethard explains that he picked her up on the northern front. And as she doesn't have a name, he's been calling her "You". Yes, Diethard, we've already established that your jackass. No need to shove it down our throats further. He pushes her head down, telling her to say hello, which Gilbert isn't a fan of. He takes hold of Violet in her arms, calls his brother a fool, saying that he can't treat a child like that. Diethard, however, disagrees. She is no child, but a weapon. A tool for the purpose of war.

      -As Major Gilbert doesn't trust his brother as far as he can throw him, he agrees to take her in. Diethard is happy to hear that, as he's already made arrangements with the army. We get a brief point of view shot from Violet, looking up at the major's stern face, though it appears out of focus, as if she's having trouble seeing. I'm sure that won't be important later.

      -Looks like we're getting an origin episode here. After the opening, we start off at the Department of the Navy in Leidenschaftlich. We're actually in the present day as Violet has come here to speak with Diethard. She's told off, but she stays firm, because she needs to ask him something important. The guard attempts to grab her, but she easily throws him on his ass, as if she was just brushing off a fly. All this screaming and excitement brings out Diethard, who takes a look at the situation and sees who's here for him. Upon seeing Violet, he orders the guards to stand down, unless he wants to die. You really do have a low opinion of Violet, don't you?

      -Diethard demands to know why Violet is there. Violet turns to face him, but Diethard takes one look at his guard and has his own comment for Violet.

      HSOsL0W.jpg

      -You are just asking to be punched in the face one day, Diethard. Good thing Violet doesn't care about that. Instead, she wants to know the truth, if Major Gilbert is missing in action? Deithard actually has a shocked expression on his face for a moment before having his angry expression back on. He didn't think Violet was unaware of this. As he's about to say Gilbert is dead, Violet quickly stops him, yelling that such a thing can't be true, that the major is alive, and is verging on so many different emotional states that she's just an absolute mess. I'd probably go with rage at the moment.

      -Diethard, who's smart enough to be a good distance away from Violet, wants to know why she's acting like this? After all, she was only a tool to him, that's all she was. So how can she be sad? Well, you see, there's this thing called growth, where a person, over time, due to their environment, is able to change and grow, allowing them to feel things they've never felt before, in order to understand their own feelings, memories, and changes. Basically, Diethard, you're an idiot fool too set in his ways. Also, you're a jerk.

      -Back at the post office, Cattleya is letting Hodgins have it for telling Violet the truth. He thought she could accept it, but Cattleya has her own opinion on the matter.



      -I don't think you can actually say that to your boss, even if you are dating him. And Cattleya keeps going, because of course Hodgins doesn't understand how women feel. Hodgins actually feels like Cattleya is going to punch him in the face, which he probably deserves, but instead, she's been ordered to go find Violet. I guess we know who's actually running the company here.

      -As for Violet, we see that she's on a train, heading for who knows where. As night turns to day, we see her at a station that is being built, with Violet wandering down the tracks, aimlessly, looking for some direction. We then cut to a mansion onto a snowy hill. Turns out, this is another flashback as Major Gilbert arrives with the young Violet, confusing the maid. Gilbert walks in, Violet close by, telling the maid to draw a bath and a change of clothes for Violet. Confused, the maid asks what she should tel the madam, as she's currently at the mansion in Leiden? There's nothing to say, for he's just looking after this girl for the time being. Well, that's less work for the maid, so she reaches for Violet to lead her to the bath, but Violet is in her wild state and starts biting the helping hand. I think that will be her first lesson.

      -Sometime later, the maid was able to get Violet changed, but she was struggling the entire time. Gilbert seems a bit remorseful, but still leaves Violet in her care, telling her to take Violet to the parole once she's eaten. You don't like your maid very much, do you, Gilbert? Later that night, Violet awakens to find the major standing over him, a coat in hand. She reacts as if he's attacking and quickly moves away, but Gilbert doesn't seem phased by it. He tells her that she needs to use a blanket or she'll catch a cold. She was sleeping on the ground, using a cover as a bed. It's going to be a long winter, isn't it?

      -Sometime later, Violet is running through the house and is about to go outside when Major Gilbert comes in. Apparently she's been looking all over for him. Apparently, she wouldn't even eat if he wasn't around. You got yourself a very clingy girl, Gilbert. Make sure to hide the knives. Sometime later, Major Gilbert is speaking with a high ranking officer. He's says that they can't bring Violet to the front lines, as she's too unstable. Apparently she was ordered to the front by the top brass, who saw what she's capable of doing on the training grounds. As far as they're concerned...



      -If only he saw what would become of Violet a few years down the line. But in the end, orders are orders, and they must be followed. Gilbert still thinks this isn't a good idea, but his superior officer tells him not to get so worked up and exploit this orphaned girl as much as he can, then dump her on the battlefield when she's no longer useful. Wow, I'm actually not surprised at how brazen the brass is here. Gilbert continues to object but he's shut down. He has no time for his new found morality. And with that, he's dismissed. Seriously, there is something wrong with this army if they think exploiting Violet was such a good idea.

      -In the next scene, we're told that the United Gardarik Army has begun advancing to Bociaccia, so they placed a defensive line along the capital city of Capria. At this point, they're in a war of attrition. And with the enemy outnumbering them two to one, they would lose that war. To make matters worse, while their line is holding, the enemy has brought cannons to the front line, which has caused a drop in morale from the soldiers. So Major Gilbert is being tasked with taking out the cannons. Hopefully it won't be a suicidal run, but it'll be tough.

      -Later, Major Gilbert is speaking with Violet. He tells her to stay here and not to move until he gets back. Soon, the unit is attempting to get behind enemy lines, but run into an enemy guard. Gilbert is about to give an order to take out the guard, but he doesn't get the chance as Violet shows off exactly what she can do, taking out the enemy guards quickly and quietly... until one of the lanterns falls to the ground and starts setting the place on fire. So much for stealth. Gilbert doesn't know how to take this at first, but he just gets angry and orders his forces to attack. Violet gets right to work, showing herself to be a one-woman army, taking out the enemy left and right, all while the forest burns around her. Gilbert is clearly distraught by this, as this was exactly what he was hoping to avoid. Damn the generals!

      -Back in the present, Violet appears to be going through that same battlefield now, still walking aimlessly until she finally reaches her destination. The mansion that was on the snowy hill. Except it isn't snowing now, but Violet herself looks like she's been through hell.



      -There, the maid recognizes Violet. Not certain what to expect, Violet is the one that speaks first, asking for Major Gilbert. The maid cannot answer at first until sometime later, she shows her Gilbert's grave. Violet collapses in front of it, reading the name on the tombstone, unable to fully compute what is happening. She recalls when the major gave her the name "Violet", and how he thinks she would grow into a person worthy of it. This is also when Gilbert learns that Violet can actually talk, as she repeats the name to the major, then his rank.

      -Gilbert is a bit surprised but happy that Violet can talk. Though she's still having some issues as she points to herself as major. Oh, they're so cute when they're young and not killing on the battlefield. Looks like Gilbert decides that she doesn't have to be a tool and helps her grow. First, by having her read a children's book. From there, it's teaching her how to write. Sometime later, at camp, Violet shows off her report to the major. He's pleased with it, so from now on, she's to write a daily report to him about whatever she's done that day. Violet in the past understands that and will write a report daily, because it's orders from the major, and they are not to be disobeyed.

      -In the present, all of these memories, as well as the words from Hodgins about Gilbert's ultimate fate, come swarming in all at once. Oh, this is going to be a very long day indeed. In another flashback, Gilbert is on the streets with Violet, explaining to her that it's Thanksgiving, and the people are celebrating after being liberated from the Gardarik forces, for they were occupied by them for three years. And it was all thanks to the Violet, the murder machine of murder death. Yay!

      -It's apparently a tradition in this town to give gifts to those you are thankful to, so Gilbert asks Violet if there is anything she wants? Okay, if it's an order, Violet will select something. Except it isn't an order, it's just a way for him to express his thanks towards her. This whole thing just confuses Violet. Still, he wants to thank her for all the fighting, and he stops himself there as he takes a look at her knees and neck, seeing the scars from the constant battles she's been in. Realizing that his foot is very much in his mouth, he suggests they talk a walk. I'm sure that will make the conversation less awkward.

      -During the walk, Violet asks Gilbert if he knows what would be appropriate for her to ask for? He thinks about it for a moment. A girl Violet's age would want dresses or accessories, so Violet agrees to that. This gets Gilbert to smile, since that's such a typical Violet thing to do. We then get the shot of the two walking from back in episode one, which lead to her finding the Emerald Brooch, which has the color of Gilbert's eyes. And thanks to what we know before, the scene takes on a whole other meaning. The shopkeeper, realizing that she has a potential sale, talks up the brooch and how beautiful it is. Sadly, this isn't a word Violet is familiar with, and asks if it's similar to pretty? Yup, though the shopkeeper would probably say anything to get that sale going. They're always pushing their wares.

      -Sometime later, after Gilbert has purchased it, he asks Violet if she wouldn't want the one that matches her eyes? Violet is happy with her choice, for it was the most beautiful one. She never knew the word before, hence why she never spoke it, but now that she knows what the word means, she's finally able to say it to Gilbert.

      9RPuwzr.jpg

      -Sounds like love at first sight to me. Gilbert is shocked by this comment and has no idea what to say. So instead, he takes the brooch in and and places it on Violet to make her look pretty. She's thankful for it, but Gilbert is raging, and it's pretty obvious why, too. Sometime later, we're at the Western Front at Obergerg, at the Leidenschaftlich Army Headquarters. We see a familiar looking person walking the grounds as various other troops talk about what's been happening in the war. The Gardariks pulled back from the west coast, which makes them wonder if they'll be home by spring? They seem quite confident that the war will be ending soon.

      -Up at the walls, Violet is staring at her brooch as Gilbert stands watch. That's when Hodgins, back when he had short hair, greets him. Gilbert salutes him, since Hodgins is a lieutenant colonel at this point. Hodgins, however, isn't comfortable with the rank and tells Gilbert not to address him like that, but Gilbert can't, given that he is of a higher rank. As Hodgins joins the major, he remarks how that cold attitude of his seems so charming after not seeing him for a while. Gilbert expresses the same compliment to Hodgins, so apparently, in the colonel's case, they were actually sending him to places they could win without fighting. Apparently, Hodgins also comes from a high class family as they are an important financier to the military. Huh, you learn something new every day.

      -But Gilbert thinks this is a good thing, and that Hodgins can't blame HQ for wanting to keep him safe. But that doesn't mean he likes being promoted like this. But still, as it's the two of them and nobody is really watching outside of Violet, Hodgins drops military procedure and wraps his arm around Gilbert, asking if he's been eating and sleeping well. Violet is about ready to murder this man touching her man, but Gilbert waves her off. He explains to her that, while he may be older, they were in the same class in officer school. Hodgins recognizes Violet, though, at the training grounds. The same one that saw her get sent to the front lines to get her murdering on. He's rather shocked to see her still here, though I imagine he was probably the lone descanter of high ranking officers who saw her in action and thought "Yes, she will kill well for us."

      -Hodgins himself is rather disgusted that Violet is being used as a weapon, with him telling Gilbert that he should be using her skills in a more appropriate way. Violet reacts rather badly to this comment, causing Hodgins to apologize for the comment. That's when Gilbert tells him her name, since it's be rather inconvenient to call her "You" all the time. Hodgins then asks if he's taking her to retake the city of Intense. Seriously, they actually named it that? That is the plan, and if the operation succeeds, the enemy will crumble and will likely be the final fight. And there went up that death flag. Poor guy.

      -Hodgins starts to leave, but before doing so tells Gilbert of his plans, to leave the army and start his own company. And he wants Gilbert to work for him, if he wants to. Gilbert doesn't like the idea of being an underling to Hodgins. As a joke, Hodgins says that he would just have to hire Violet instead. It's funny because the hindsight here will be hilarious. Gilbert, however, thinks that is a brilliant idea. I think I need to rewatch the first episode again because I feel like I'm missing something here.

      -We soon see soldiers gearing up for this final battle. In his tent, Gilbert loads up his gun, but Violet comes in. She wants to know if Gilbert no longer needs her? She wants to know if, when she's dismissed, will she be transferred under Hodgins' command? Will she never receive orders from the major ever again? Yeah, now isn't the best time for this. They have a war to finish. Once that battle is done, they can talk about it later. And by later, he means never. And so, the final briefing takes place. They're going for the enemy headquarters in Intense, but it's surrounded by cliffs, making it a natural fortress. Attacking from the front is too difficult, so their artillery will bombard the enemy first. Once the enemy is distracted, they'll use the sewers to enter the city, rush to the cathedral, and take control of their headquarters. Once that is done, they'll send up a flare to signal the rest of their forces to charge, and with that, the operation will be completed.

      -And with that, the battle begins. Hodgins is involved, as well, leading the artillery, keeping him as far from the battle as possible. Once the first bombs drop, the battle begins in earnest. Violet takes the lead, clearing a path for the soldiers. They are soon pin down by enemy fire, giving Gilbert time to get a SITREP on his unit. Squads 1 and 2 are doing fine, but Squads 3 and 4 lost half their men and will need help. Gilbert then gives out the orders. Squads 1 and 2 will secure the perimeter and draw the enemy reinforcements in. The remaining Squads will come with him to take control of the cathedral. Move out!

      -The battle intensifies as the city burns. Hodgins is counting on Gilbert to complete the task. They soon reach the main room of the cathedral, but it seems empty. Violet soon realizes it's a trap and drags the major out of the way as the rest of the soldiers are mowed down, leaving only them. Which is more than enough to deal with this rabble. They soon get right to work, dealing with the enemy inside while the remaining squads deal with the outside. Both Gilbert and Violet are looking quite beat up, but Gilbert keeps going, launching his flare into the air, giving the signal. Interesting how the flare almost sounded like a gun shot.

      -Though I may have been foreshadowing a bit, because the Major does get shot. This is after launching the flare, though. He turns and smiles to Violet just in time to get a bullet to the head, though it may have defected off his helmet. But no, I'm wrong. Went right into the eye. How lovely. Violet is shocked to see that happen as Intense burns up in flame... CUE CREDITS!

      What a cliffhanger ending. But are they going to drag this out for the remainder of the series? We have five more episodes after this. This just seems like season finale material to me. But we're learning more about Gilbert, Violet, and Hodgins, as well as witnessing the final battle of the war, as well as the final battle for those three.

      With so many different emotions going through her mind, how will Violet deal with them now, in the present? Will she understand the last words Gilbert said to her at the end? Will she be able to cope with his loss? Tune in on Friday to find out.

      Until next time, remember, when launching a signal flare, always make sure to check your surroundings, just to make sure there are no enemy soldiers there waiting to shoot you in the eye.

    • Gudako came to America

      And she's just as scary in person.




      So at AX, at the Aniplex booth, they had Gudako show up as a special appearance, where she proceed to beat up on Albert for the lack of SQ and five stars.  Poor Albert.


      I watched the stream and was kind of disappointed they didn't announce a release date for the summer banners.  One would think, given how long we've been waiting for them, they would have had solid dates for them.  Either we're getting them next week, after the anniversary ends, or in two weeks, with next week being the Camelot 2 banner.


      Oh, and I posted some new images,  Go comment on them or else I'll be sad.

    • Violet Evergarden Episode 7

      3 days ago

      CaButler

      Hello everybody and welcome to our next exciting episode of Violet Evergarden, the show about a girl looking for love and being loved by random people up in a mountain. You know, one of those types of shows.

      In our last episode, instead of getting a follow up with the confrontation with Major Gilbert's Brother, we instead have Violet, as well as several other AMDs, go up to a mountain observatory to help preserve some old texts and manuscripts with their fellow transcribers. Violet is paired up with Leon, somebody who has lived there for a long time, and has some resentment towards AMDs and women in general. Long story short, his mother was an entertainer (not that kind) and fell in love with a man while in town. They married, had Leon, but then the father disappeared, as he was tasked with collecting texts and it wasn't always safe. The mother went out to find him and never came back, leaving Leon to himself.

      During the two weeks together, Leon starts falling for Violet, but comes to recognize that she is actually in love with somebody else, even if she doesn't understand it herself. Still, she continues to grow, and thanks to her list, helps Leon grow as a person, too. But will this help Violet understand the meaning of "I Love you"? And will we get a proper resolution with Major Gilbert's brother? Let's tune in and find out.

      -Our episode begins at a play, where two actors overact quite badly. Going to mark this low on my Yelp review. We see Erica is in the crowd, who is enraptured by the play, with Iris next to her, looking rather bored. The play reaches it's final line, with the crowd giving it a standing ovation. Well, I guess having a play so shortly after the war, anything will be good. Still, two out of five, would not recommend.

      -At the post office, Erica starts talking about the play and says that Violet should have come. However, if they're talking about the play know as the Red Devil (or Red Demon, as the dub calls it), then she's reading it right now. Erica, however, is a bit jealous, because she would have loved to scribe for Oscar Webster, the person who wrote the play. And apparently, Violet is his Doll. Erica herself is jealous, since it means Violet can read the new works first. Apparently, this will be his first work in a while and she can't wait to see how it turns out. Hopefully it'll involve better actors than the last play.

      -Violet reaches the last page and says the last line, giving a better read than the guy we just saw, but she just gets blank stares from Erica and Iris.

      OsarUHh.jpg

      -Everybody is a critic. After the opening we're in Hodgins' office, handing off the letter requests to Cattleya. It's a rather large number, and it's all thanks to Violet and the love letter situation some time ago. Apparently, she's been getting more requests now. But that's when Cattleya decides to bring up the uncomfortable subject about Major Gilbert. Has he spoken to her about it yet? Nope, because that's a subject Hodgins isn't ready to deal with yet. That fallout will be epic. The reason Cattleya brings it up is through concern, as she notices that Violet is lost in thought lately. Though I imagine she gives that look all the time, she's probably been around her long enough to catch some of the little things Violet does.

      -Next, we're on a boat, hopefully not doing a bad rap song, as it approaches the Roswell Region of Genetrix. Violet is here to fulfill another request, and boy, does she have to go far. Her client is apparently living out in the middle of nowhere, living in a house that looks a bit rundown and appears abandoned. Still, Violet knocks on the door a couple of times until she finally gets an answer from the person inside. He looks rather disheveled and appeared that he was going to ask Violet to leave until he got a good look at her and was just stunned. Why, yes, your yard is terrible, but that isn't the point right now.

      -Violet gives her usual on the job greeting while this new person takes over narration. Turns out, he requested Violet because she has the same colored hair as the girl he wanted to see again. Okay, I think I don't want to hear his thoughts anymore. And apparently, the name causes him great sadness that he can't speak it outloud. Violet, I know your a badass ex-soldier, but I think this is one of those times you just want to turn and walk away. This guy is crazy!

      -Oh, and if you thought the yard was bad, wait until you get a look at the inside. It's possibly worse. The client quickly cleans up a bit, commenting on his own surprise as he wasn't expecting such a child like Violet. Seriously, she does not look fourteen to me at all. Violet takes it as him being unsatisfied with her and offers to have another Doll come. Violet, why are you so mean to your co-workers? The client declines the request. As long as Violet types, she'll do. His health hasn't been the best lately, as show when he grabs a bottle but starts shaking rather badly. Violet reaches over and places a hand on his. But no, she isn't offering comfort. She's telling him not to drink alcohol while they work.

      -...Oh, right, this is the playwright, Oscar. I have no idea why I forgot about him. Anyway, Oscar says he can't write unless he drinks, but Violet corrects him. She'll be the one doing the writing. Whatever, as Oscar takes a swig and says they'll start tomorrow. Violet, who is very blunt about her opinions, decides to give hers.



      -Violet is not interested in taking any of your crap, mister. But she's a professional and doesn't let it linger, asking if they'll be doing the writing in this mess of a room. Yes, or on the terrace, depending on Oscar's mood. He does have a study, but it's a little too cramped. Can't imagine why. In any case, Violet is ready to work and takes off her gloves, revealing her metal hands. In an unusual twist, Oscar is only mildly curious and doesn't give a shocked, horrified expression on his face. He asks what happens and she answers honestly. Still, I get this suspicion that his new main character is going to feature a character that's very similar to Violet. Just a hunch, really.

      -We get a time passage shot outside as we see what Violet has done.



      -I hope you charge extra for that, Violet. After this, she asks if Oscar has any type paper. Nope. She needs to go buy some at the store at the port. Oh, and he wants dinner, too. Oh, the hours that Violet will be charging this guy. Though any thoughts of that are quickly dashed by this comment from Violet.



      -And this is what happens when you request Violet. She is a no-nonsense type who will listen to your requests but won't go beyond her operating parameters. Too bad Oscar decides now is a good time to fall asleep. And Violet is actually getting agitated by him. Shocking, I know. So Violet ends up going into town, getting the ingredients for dinner. Except she has a problem.



      -It's going to be one of those days, isn't it? So the store owner explains it to her, but she's still just as confused, so sometime later, she actually gets instructions, and back at the house, we see her preparing the meal. Turns out, she kind of sucks at breaking open the eggs. It's fine. Not everybody gets it right initially. Oscar shows up, confused, and finds out that she's giving her hand at cooking. This is either going to go really well or really bad. Though we see the meal and it looks normal, but it's all in a lump. Still, Oscar gives it a try and decides to give it a passing grade. Though he wonders why she isn't eating and asks. She'll have something later. Oscar stares at the empty chair in front of him, looking sad and a bit lonely. Violet stares at him, noticing the look, and is probably trying to determine just how difficult he will be.

      -Sometime later, Oscar is going through his cabinets, looking for something. We see that he found a bottle of alcohol, hidden behind other items. Violet goes to confront him, and when he asks where all the alcohol went...



      -First, well done, Violet. Second, why are we going with this shot? It makes her look like a horror movie villain. Finally, she would be the worst person to be marooned on an island for Captain Jack. Anyway, as far as Violet is concerned, Oscar getting drunk is bad, because it'll hinder the writing process. Also, drinking alcohol in excess is not good for his health. She then takes the bottle she apparently missed out of his hand, telling him that she will keep these in her possession. Oh, Oscar, you are in for a world of pain.

      -And so the writing process begins, but we catch it in the middle. Oscar is reciting the lines to the play as Violet diligently types away. Looks like we're going with another fantasy play. Oscar also gives the stage directions and other side notes to Violet. If anybody has read a play script before, you know exactly what these are. Violet, of course, is totally in for this play. In the play, Olive, the main character, needs to cross a burning valley to get to a sword, so a water spirit will come by to help out because why not? Though that sounds like a Deus Ex Machina, to me, but maybe Olive helped out the water spirit before. Oh, right, Violet. She's really into this play and comments about the last line, glad to know that Olive will be able to cross it. Hooray!

      -Anyway, the burning fire is extinguished, but Violet asks how that will happen? Well, if the red cloth acting as the fire gets pulled in, then there you go. Violet understands, getting a little insight into how this all works. During this pause, Oscar asks for her opinion on the play so far. Honestly? Even though she didn't go through it, she feels like she's experiencing it. Hey, if you can pull in the viewers, you're doing the job right. Violet finds herself feeling much like Olive, the main character, who also happens to be female. Geez, I can't imagine why that's the case.

      -Violet explains all the emotions she's feeling when listening and reading, but can't understand why. Oscar smiles, though, but he's gettin the best kind of compliment, and explains to her that she's feeling what Olive is feeling, that she's beginning to identify with her. She feels empathy with Olive. And after that, Oscar is relieved that she feels that way. This is his first time writing a play meant for children, which is probably not an easy task. Might also explain why the Water Spirit just show up out of nowhere. Violet, who's totally informed this story and asks what happens next? Well, seems like, during her travels, Olive will lose her power to speak with the spirits. Violet is shocked, shocked, I tell you! How will Olive return home? She already lost her boat, after all. Wow, to make Violet feel like that, Oscar must be quite the playwright.

      -Still, Violet's question gets Oscar thinking. He hasn't actually come up with that part yet. This is unacceptable to Violet. He must come up with the answer, or else Violet can't return to her waiting father. Though this comment seems to have an effect on Oscar, who looks sadden. Still, Violet presses for an answer, but Oscar doesn't give one. He stands up and takes a look outside. Damn this weather! It's too good! He apparently went outside at some point, which seemed like a very weird cut. Weren't they inside just before? Do not do what you guys did with Beyond the Boundary, what with it's confusing cuts, okay? That is not acceptable!

      -Violet joins Oscar, holding a small parasol in her arms, asking what it is. Oscar answers, but makes me wonder why she asks? Because it's beautiful to her. And now we get a sudden flashback to a girl holding that parasol. After experiencing this random flashback, Oscar decides to take a little break. He'll need to go find his secret, secret stash. Except Violet already found that, so he just wallows in sadness and pity inside of his room, staring at a picture who's face is blurred out. I'm sure that won't be important later.

      -Oscar stares outside, seeing Violet playing around with the parasol because why not? This triggers a flashback for Oscar, with a young girl who looks suspiciously like a younger Violet in the same parasol proposing to show Oscar one day. But this isn't a happy memory for him as he storms out of the house and yells at Violet, knocking the parasol out of her hands. He tells her to stop, but as she begins to apologize, he decides that he's had enough and tells her to go home. Yeah, no, Violet doesn't like this for one simple reason.



      -I'm glad to know where your priorities lie, Violet. She's also being rather vocal about this, too, which is unusual to see from present-day Violet. She wants to see Olive's story complete, but then asks Oscar what he's hiding from her in his heart? This gets him to stop as she says that she's unable to sense the feelings of another person and apologize for any rudeness she may have done. We get a long pause as Oscar looks guilty, then to the parasol, then back to Violet. He admits that he can't write anymore, but can't let it end like this, either. No wrier worth his salt would ever leave a story unfinished... unless it was really, really bad. then you just rewrite the whole thing all over again.

      -But this is why Oscar wanted to do this play. He wanted to finish the story he told Olivia. Oh, so that's who his main character is. Violet is confused at first, but we learn that Olivia is actually Oscar's daughter. Dun dun dun! After a cut that seems like a good place to put in a commercial, Oscar explains that, after losing his wife to illness, he moved here with his daughter. I originally had a theory that Olivia was actually Violet, but that theory is shot immediately as we see the color of Olivia's eyes. They're brown, while Violet's is blue. Then again, it isn't unusual for a person's eye color to change. I used to have green eyes, now they're this grey/bluish color.

      -We get shots of the two living together here, which was their summer home. Oscar believes she was sad in not having a mother, but she never showed it. But rather, she would always help her so she can focus on her work. He then adds that his daughter's favorite things were silly frilled parasols and waterbirds. In a flashback, Olivia sees a waterbird skim the lake and she admits to being jealous, wanting to cross the lake, as well. She wonders if she can try walking on the leaves floating, but Oscar says that only if the wind carries her with her parasol. Suddenly, a gust of wind comes in, nearly blowing the parasol out of Olivia's hands. Oscar worries for his daughter, but she says she's fine. But she will cross this lake one day and promises to show him. Cute daughter is cute!

      -Though it appears all good things come to an end. For you see, Olivia herself was also sick and possibly dying. Against the advise of the doctors, Oscar brought his daughter back here, to be happy one more time. He was happy to see her smile again, on those quiet, warm days. In this flashback, we see a weakened, but smiling, Olivia, sitting beside her father on a bench, looking out towards the lake. She then closes her eyes and rests her head on his shoulders, never to open them again. This is symbolized by her fading away, leaving Oscar truly alone. Does everybody Violet has met have a tearjerker backstory?

      -In the present, Oscar asks why God took away something so precious to him? And as you expect, this hits close to home for Violet. We see her clenching her fists, and on her face, we see her shedding tears, knowing how sad and painful it is, but only now learning the true meaning behind such feelings. Later that night, Violet is in the guest room and tries to eat the Emerald Brooch again. Why is that a character tic for her? But there's a knock on the door. It's Oscar, and he came to apologize for his actions earlier that day. Violet says it isn't his fault, for she was the one who lost her composure. I know, that seems weird, but if you think about it, she did. She really, really likes that story.

      -Oscar vows to finish the story, that Olive will reach home and reunite with her father. No matter how difficult the adventure, she will get her happy ending. As a result, both Olive and the audience will be happy. As long as the story makes sense, that is. But Violet is all in for this. The next day, Oscar is getting to the ending as we see him and Violet outside, enjoying the nice day. Still, they are nearing the ending, but Oscar is at a loss. How do they get Olive home from here? Violet suggests taking a plane. Lady, this is a fantasy story. What madman includes planes in a fantasy story?

      -Still, Oscar isn't totally against the idea. It just needs to be more imaginative. Violet looks out to the lake and sees the birds there and suggests "Maybe she can turn into a bird and fly home?" This actually helps out Oscar a lot, but in a different direction. Oscar suggests that she can fly using a parasol, but Violet remarks that one cannot fly with a parasol. Sure, in reality, but this is fiction and we can do anything, so long as it makes sense. Here, the wind spirit will appear to Olive one last time, telling her to open her parasol. He gets Violet to open up the parasol they have there, continuing the line from the Wind Spirit. Violet is totally in for this.

      -With that, Olive is able to return home and reunite with her father. But he lingers on what the first thing they say when they're reunited. Oscar goes through a couple of lines, with Violet suggesting she has writer's block again. And she won't be bringing out the sledgehammer again to help. Still, Oscar feels like he's on a roll and needs help, so he instructs Violet to help him visualize it. And if she can, to walk on the fallen leaves. She gets right on that. No! Wait! He wasn't being serious.

      -Oscar gives chase, but Violet looks posed to cross the lake with the parasol. Oscar stares at her, a bit confused, but then we see Violet take her run and leaps into the air, visualizing the last bit for Oscar.



      -Though I have a different work in mind when I see this. As Violet makes her leap, Oscar hears Olivia promising to walk across the lake one day. And Kyoani shows off once again.



      -Granted, it's in slow motion, but all those colors! But seeing Violet, who looks a lot like his daughter, causes Oscar to tear up, wishing he could hear Olivia say those things to him a thousand times more. He recalls her birth, her first steps, her first stuffed animal, the parasol, them spending time together, all the way to her final moments. How he wishes for her to have grown up, to live, something she wished for. In his mind, Olivia reaches out to him, giving him that warm, knowing smile, before leaving once more. As for Violet?

      Ju7PLtp.jpg

      -A ninja you are not, Violet. Still, that was an impressive leap. She asks if Oscar was able to see it, but he's too busy being a blubbering mess. Yeah, the remainder of the session is going to be quite difficult. In narration, Oscar says that, after granting him this miracle, he told her that he didn't believe there is a god, but if there were, it would be you. Yeah, let's not try ascending anybody to godhood quite yet, okay? Okay.

      -At the port, Violet is returning to the post office, but Oscar is seeing her off. And he has a gift for her. The parasol that belonged to his daughter. She's a bit surprised by this, but laments that she couldn't fly further. But Oscar was satisfied with what he saw, because she was able to fulfill Olivia's wish for one day. Violet lingers on this for a moment, but the sound of the horn on the boat means it's time to leave. Violet gets into business mode and thanks Oscar for using their AMD service, but like with Leon before, she has a smile on her face. And with that, the two part ways, as is the case for an AMD and their client.

      -On the boat, Violet is in her cabin, lost in thought. As she closes her eyes to sleep, she recalls the words from Diethard from a couple of episodes ago. Hey, we're actually going back to that! Maybe. Because in a flashback, Hodgins is telling Violet that her body is on fire and she doesn't realize it, because of the things she did. Though what's interesting about this flashback is that Violet is in her Doll getup, which is what she wasn't wearing when this scene took place. When she tries to deny it, Hodgins stops her, saying that she'll understand one day. And the background change to that of a battlefield, filled with the bodies of the dead. There, she stares at her hands, covered in blood, but is then covered up hand, causing her to wake up.

      -Awoken by the dream, Violet clutches onto the Emerald Brooch, calling for Major Gilbert, recalling their final moments together. She asks herself if she's allowed to live after killing so many? Hasn't she taken so many "one day" wishes? She breaks down, head in hands, lamenting that those very same people also had loved ones. Oh man, she's cracking and it's going to be bad.

      -In a conversation with herself, Violet, in her head, says she isn't burning, but present day Violet says that she is. They argue like this for a moment before present day Violet says she can feel the fire spreading across her body from all the things she's done. Oh dear. I hope Hodgins gets to her first before something terrible happens.

      -Back home, Violet gets off the port just in time to run into Lady Evergarden, who is happy to see her. Violet is in a sorrowful mood and apologizes for her past actions, for it was never her attention to offend her. Lady Evergarden says that she doesn't have to apologize for anything, but she's thankful to see how far she's come, and she's sure Gilbert can rest in peace.

      -...Wait, what? Violet lingers on the "rest in peace" line. Oh, this was the worst possible thing that could happen. At the post office, Violet storms Hodgins' office, catching him by surprise. She is furious, though she doesn't actually show it, accusing him of lying to her. She demands to know the truth, if the Major is safe and alive. She wants to know that he's alive, right? Oh, Violet, this is going to end so badly for you.

      -Hodgins finally admits that Gilbert isn't alive. At the Final Battle of Intense (seriously, that's a city name?), they found Violet alone on the ground under a church. It's likely that Major Gilbert pushed her away right before it was bombarded. While they didn't find his body, they did find his ID tag under the debris. As a result, he's listed as missing in action. Oh, so he may not actually be dead, then? That works for Violet, though. Hodgins, however, doesn't want her to keep her hopes up for something that likely isn't true and tries to get her to see that, but Violet is so far gone that she refuses to accept or understand that. Like how she could be the only one to survive? The Major was there with her to the end.

      -Hodgins, trying to provide some comfort, reaches out for Violet, but she doesn't give him the chance. Instead, she runs out of the post office, running off to who knows where. Our end card, which usually has the last line from the person who spoke it last, is instead blank. Cue credits!

      Well, this was an emotional episode, wasn't it? Though I think the visuals, combined with the music during the leaping scene, played a major factor in that. And also, the truth finally comes out that Major Gilbert is... missing in action and presumed dead. Violet, however, who decided now was the perfect time to have a break down, just heard the one thing she didn't want to hear at all. This will likely have terrible consequences for her, even when we're only halfway through the series! I guess they realized that they couldn't actually drag this out for a full season. I wonder how they'll resolve this and finish up the series?

      And as we're halfway through the series, I have a question for those that have joined me this far. What show would you like me to do after this? Normally I have another show lined up at this point, but the one I had planned won't be released until next year. With that, I don't really have another show for now. As such, I'll take suggestions, though I'll add two myself.

      One show I can take a look at is Futari wa Pretty Cure. The very first season, actually. I see a lot of people talk up the franchise itself and I decided it want to take a gander, though there are technically only two I can watch legally, and only one of them seems to remain intact with all episodes, which is the first season, which is on Crunchyroll.

      Another show I can try is Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans. I never actually finished this series, and I've kinda wanted to see if I can. It's actually kind of weird because I think the only Gundam show I've watched to completion was Gundam Wing. I even have Gundam X but haven't even taken off the plastic for it yet.

      But if anybody else has any other suggestions, I'll be more than happy to see if that's possible.

      Until next time, remember, when you need to help visualize a scene, make sure to make it as accurate as possible, even if physics says otherwise.

      For you are blessed to take part in the deadliest of all wars.  The Waifu Wars.


      May you somehow live through this terrible ordeal of death, soldier.


      In other news, the second summer banner Heroes allude me.  I can't tell if this is a good thin or a bad thing for the FGO Summer Banners, but I really, really want that Camilla..

      Of course Tiki gets a second version for her younger self, just for that demographic.  Otherwise, I got forty orbs to take my shots here.  Especially for Carmilla.


      With this summer banner, that means FGO's summer banner is coming up soon, and it's going to be a pain on the wallet.  FEH typically isn't because it's very, very generous with it's Orbs.  Still, we have to go through the Anniversary Week in FGO, then the second Camelot Banner, and that's assuming they don't run that banner with the summer event.


      The Anniversary is suppose to run until the 17th, so it's entirely possible that the second Camelot banner will run at the tail end of the Anniversary banner, which is suppose to end on the 17th.  So, unless they run the summer event right afterwards, I'm predicting the Summer event will start on or around the 24th and will run well into August, since the original event was close to a month long.


      Oh, and don't forget to do the survey in the app to get a free summon ticket.  In the field talking about collabs, what did you put down?  I put down RWBY because I'm unoriginal, but in another place I go to, somebody suggested Game of Thrones.  Which can work, when you think about it.  What about you guys?  Did you put in anything different?


      Lastly, I put up some new images in the gallery to be enjoyed.

    • Violet Evergarden Episode 6

      1 week ago

      CaButler

      Hello everybody and welcome to our next exciting episode of Violet Evergarden, the show that uses the letters of love to avoid a war between two nations. It's that kind of show.

      In our last episode, Violet is commissioned to assist Princess Charlotte of an allied nation to write love letters to her betrothed, Prince Damian. Princess Charlotte seems to think the whole thing is a waste, mainly because she doesn't feel like she's receiving any meaningful replies from the prince. Though Violet does recognize one of the letters being used, knowing that one of her coworkers is writing letters for Prince Damian. So the two hatch a plot to have the Prince and Princess write letters to one another in their own words, reflecting one meeting they had when they were younger. Turns out, Charlotte was quite smitten with the prince in that first meeting, and was actually not opposed to any marriage between the two of them. Shocking, I know.

      But thanks to that, the letters are a smash hit with the citizens of both nations, enraptured by the honest, true love they profess to one another. And soon enough, they meet one more time, and there, they agree to wed, giving them the happy ending they both desired. Violet is pleased with herself, though she does own Cattleya a steak for going outside the AMD mission parameters. But still, if the client is happy, then it's all good.

      Though the ending itself doesn't end happily. You see, a figure from Violet's past returns. One Diethard, brother to Gilbert, arrives because he's heard rumors about Violet, about how she became a Doll, and wanted to see for himself. Because in his own past, he remembers Violet as a violent killer, who killed most of his own crew long ago.

      What new revelations in Violet's past will be revealed this episode? And will this stop her from trying to find the meaning to "I love you"? Let's tune in and find out.

      -We begin the episode in the Justitia Region of Astrea. The flowers blow with the wind as we see a tram going up the hill. There we see Violet walking with... wait, is that Violet? She looks like Violet. Let's assume it is for a moment. So she and various other women are coming, which attracts the eye of a couple of people. One in particular tells his friend, Leon, all about it, but he's not interested, since they're all Dolls. Though the friend doesn't see that as a problem, since they're beautiful women who write beautiful letters to the wishes of the client. Leon, however, has a negative opinion on Dolls, saying that they only dress up that way because they dream of marrying rich men. Wow! It astonishes me how every single word he just said was completely wrong.

      -Well, probably not completely wrong, but so far, of all the Dolls we've met, not a single one of them as expressed any wish of marrying rich. But still, Leon, you're a jerk. In narration, he adds what he knows, saying that Dolls are called all over the world to sell their writing abilities, and that at first, that job disgusted him. He didn't know why he thought that way, but it made him angry. I honestly don't like what implications you're giving here, Leon, but that's a huge stretch.

      -After the opening, we return to this place, which looks like some sort of school or laboratory. The Dolls are there, mingling with one another, as the men, who may or may not be students or scientists, obverse them with interest. Violet is by herself, but is greeted by two of her former classmates...

      1LTKL3Y.jpg

      -Hey, it's the two minor characters from the class that we only spent a very short time with! Who knew they'd show up again? And hey, Luculia is there, too! It's like a class reunion! Luculia gives her compliments to Violet with her work with the Princess of Drossel. The other two are equally as impressed, but they also seem to notice that Violet is unhappy. I know, I'm shocked, as well, but I guess when you know Violet long enough, you can catch her moods. She tells them it's nothing, but thanks them for asking anyway. Still, Luculia won't let it go, so Violet pinches her cheeks to give her fake smile, which gets her to laugh a bit, but she's still concern for her friend.

      -That's when Le Verrier, the chief of the Shahar Observatory, announces himself to the Dolls. They all bow to him, pretty much in unison, getting some shocked and curious glances from the other scientist/students. Except, Leon, who couldn't give a damn. Anyway, Le Verrier states that his observatory houses many books on astronomy from many places and eras. Each and every book is maintained by their staff members, and should they find one in distress, they work on preserving it. And if that was their only task, they would have plenty of people to deal with it. Most o them are a bunch of slackers anyway.

      -However, last month, they received an enormous volume of extremely valuable manuscripts, all in terrible condition. Among them are manuscripts that would fall apart as soon as one turns the page. So, they brought in eighty AMDs, and with their staff of eighty transcribers, they will be working pairs to decode and transcribe the manuscripts. But they're on the clock, for they only have two weeks to fulfill their duty. This is why they hired all these AMDs, to help with this project. Why two weeks, though? Do they have to be returned at some point?

      -So the pairing begins. Leon's friend gets paired with Iberis, who is from the Fujimi Post Office. And then its Leon's turn, and as you suspect, he gets paired with Violet. So they meet up, with Violet giving her usual greeting, as per her job, and the aloof and uninterested Leon is suddenly very interested.



      -Looks like Leon broke again, sir. Violet goes to move, but is confused as to why Leon isn't moving. Even the headmaster here asks if everything is fine. Realizing where he's at, Leon brushes it off as nothing and races out of the room. And with that, the pairing continues. Sometime later, we see Violet is in a small room filled with books as Leon appears with a stack of them in hand. She moves to stand, but he tells her to remain seated. She apologizes for that and sits back down as Leon comes over with the books. He grabs one and decides to test Violet on how she does with this manuscript written in a common classical language. It's an observation record of Ally's Comet from four hundred years ago. Huh, I wonder if they're missing a letter for the name of this comet? Maybe it was lost to time.

      -Apparently, the comment comes around once every two hundred years, and it'll be observed here, at the Shahar Observatory soon. Violet understands, and with that, they begin. Leon, however, warns Violet that he's fast at decoding, and should she be unable to keep or or if he deems her useless, then... oh, and the gloves come off and we get that classic shocked expression as Violet is at the ready. And as usual, Leon is taken aback briefly before getting straight to work at decoding the text. The text talks about the comet and how it came to be a bad omen, for it's arrival seemed to cause plague and the death of the king, which shook the whole nation. Violet types all of this down and is pretty much going at Leon's pace. When he stops, so does she. He appears to be surprised and maybe a little angry and attempts to decode faster. This isn't a race, Leon. Well, actually, you guys are on the clock, so maybe rushing it isn't a bad idea.

      -The next section of the book talks more about the myth involved in the comet itself, but that isn't important, per say. Though when Leon turns the page, most of it is covered in pictures, one is of a woman with a long dress that looks like a comet's tail, which seems to cover up a young girl. Leon continues as this next passage talks about this particular picture, which states that, in the land of the fairies, they were blessed with a new vessel, and its soul would be protected forevermore. No better place than a comet to protect one's soul.

      -After a short pause, Violet asks Leon to continue. He looks a bit nervous and gives a minor compliment to Violet. And so, they continue the book as we get a time passage shot of the sun setting, turning into dusk. A bell rings, indicating that they're done for the day. Violet notes that they have completed one hundred and forty-four pages, adding that they completed three days worth of work in one. It's Violet's turn to hand out the compliments, saying that Leon's work is very efficient. Leon, however, gets all Tsundere on Violet, turning away with a blush. Oh, looks like he's falling for her! Bad Leon! Very bad!

      -Later that night, the headmaster tells them that progress was extremely favorable, and on this graph they're using, one part has apparently done three days worth of work. Please keep up the good work tomorrow, as well. We see Leon walking the observatory alone until he finds Violet, alone, staring at the stars. They glance at each other for a moment, but then get to talking. Leon asks how she can still be standing after doing so much work, but to her, writing is less tiring than traveling. After all, their duty as Dolls requires them to travel anywhere for their clients. She carries her suitcase with her all year long, traveling on various modes of transportation. The whole thing confuses Leon. Why did she choose to do this? And here she goes about how she wants to look for the meaning behind "I Love you" and...



      -Didn't you actually volunteer for the job? Violet goes on to say that, at first, she saw it as her duty, but then she saw how many different emotions were involved with it. And now, she's entrusted with the thoughts of the people of the past, and she writes them down in order to preserve them for the generations to come. She's come to realize the value of her work, and how special that is. Leon, who's in almost the same role, agrees with her. But Violet herself still has doubts, if she could be considered worth of this work. And with that, the two spend some time together under the stars, just letting her words hang there. And if Leon was going to be important, perhaps this is him realizing that he might be falling for Violet, but as this isn't that type of show, it won't happen... maybe.

      -The next day, in the grand library, Leon is looking over some books when he overhears a conversation involving Violet. Some of the other observers are sorry that she is partnered up with Leon, who was apparently an Orphan and didn't have the money to work here without Shahar's support. Wait, so he had to pay to work there, where he would get paid in return? That seems weird. But the observers go own, saying that he doesn't deserve to work with a beautiful woman like Violet. They invite her over to hang out with them after work, but Violet shoots them down. She says that she's an orphan herself, and hasn't lived a privileged life as they seem to think. She only learned to write a few years ago, as shocking as that sounds. And this is where the burns begin.

      -Violet tells the observers that if one's upbringing limits the circle of people they interact with, then she suggests that they don't get involved with her. Basically, "Piss off, I got no time for jerks like you." But apparently they won't stop, saying that she's different, and are about to suggest something about Leon's mother, but Violet stops them, saying that she doesn't even know the faces of her parents', so, you know, that won't deter her, either. But these two are either very dense, stubborn, or just plain hate the guy, as they say she's only defending him because he's her partner. Violet's response?



      -You know, this conversation is getting to think of the other Dolls. Mainly, are they getting this same kind of attention and conversation as Violet? I would assume so, but I imagine they find it just as annoying as her, because they're here to work, not socialize. That's for when they're back home. Anyway, the observers? They give up, but seem to think that Violet is the problem, not them. Wow, seriously? Seriously? What a bunch of jerks!

      -Leon, of course, overheard the whole thing and is currently mixed with emotions. He then comes down a ladder, because why would a library need stairs when ladders are just as good? Violet sees him and asks if he found the book he was looking for. Yes, he did, but she notices that he's upset. When asked, he denies, getting all Tsundere, claiming that he just looks angry all the time. After a moment, Violet tells him that she herself is expressionless, or is at least told as much. And for her, that's just how she looks. It's Violet herself who notes that they're similar in that regards. Maybe not as similar as she thinks, given that Leon is hiding most of his own emotions. Poor guy has no idea what he's in for.

      -Later, his roommate is talking about how great it is with his Doll, and with her apparently saying she's cute, he resolves himself to invite her to the observation. Leon, however, is in his own world at the moment, so his roommate suggest they go all out, since the Dolls are only here for four more days. The next day, we see Leon going through the dinning hall, seeing people eat there, before searching the observatory until finding Violet outside. He tells her it's lunch time, so why isn't she eating with the others? She's instead feeding the birds, because it's a habit of hers. Why is it her habit? Because you're defenseless when you eat or sleep, and your reaction to the enemy slows down. That's when she reveals that she used to be in the military. Leon takes a look at her and just can't get the words out, so Violet asks in his stead.



      -What, a petite girl like you being in the military, apparently causing all kinds of carnage? No, of course not. But to Leon, it is strange, because Violet looks like a normal girl to him. Outside of her metal arms, that is. Violet is confused about "normal". Leon, however, is just having all kinds of problems getting the words out until he goes roundabout in inviting her to the observation of the comet. You know, Ally's Comet, which Violet remembers as the comet they transcribed on their first day. Is there anything she doesn't remember?

      -Leon, bless his hard, tries very, very hard to get Violet to go, but he's so nervous that he's crushing his own lunch in his hands. He goes on about how it's suppose to be beautiful, so wouldn't Violet want to go see it? After a long pause where Violet just stares blankly at him, she says that she would, causing Leon to snap his bread in half out of joy, and agrees to meet with her at 2 A.M. at the lodging house in three days. And with that, he walks off, probably shaking from his nerves. Violet, however, remains composed, probably wondering what exactly just happened, but then stares out into the sky in front of her.



      -Nothing to add here. Just showing off a wonderful shot from the show. Just keep showing off, Kyoani. We don't mind. We then get a time passage montage of Leon in his room, counting the days. The boy is so anxious he's about ready to blow. But then, the big day comes. Most of the observers are in the observatory, but for Leon, he's with Violet outside, pointing right at Ally's Comet. She takes a seat as Leon, the smooth operator that he is, puts a blanket around Violet, since it gets very cold up on that mountain. He explains that it's easiest to see the tail of the comet before sunrise, when it's in the easy sky. Violet starts to say something about the blanket but Leon stops her, saying he'll be fine. Oh, and just in case you think I was joking when I saw Leon was falling for her...



      -One does not invite a lovely young lady out in the middle of the night to observe a comet without bringing a blanket and soup unless one plans to profess their love for said lady after only being around her for two weeks. Though I'm just laughing at how Violet has herself bundled up here. I have no idea why I find it funny, I just do. So Leon gives Violet some soup as he gets back to work on the telescope. Violet comments how kind he is, but he goes right into Tsundere mode, claiming he's not kind at all, b-baka!

      -Leon does admit that he's not too good with women, acting cold with them, but then catches himself at making a comment he wouldn't normally make. Damn, Violet is good. After getting the telescope ready, he asks her if she remembers the conversation she had with the guys at the library. Everything they said about him was true. About him, his family, everything. His mother was a wanderer, an entertainer. She would tour around to dance, sing, and perform her talents. During a visit to this town, she fell in love with a man and had a child. He was that child. IN a flashback, he's held up by his father and the entire family is all smiles. Looking back, Leon thinks that they were happy back then. But one day, his father never returned. Oh dear.

      -Leon's father was in charge of gathering documents at Shahar, so he would travel the world in order to collect valuable books. His work would involve visiting dangerous territories, and during one of those travels, he disappeared. They would search for him for two years until finally they called it off. So Mother went looking for him. Leon thinks that she loved his father more than anyone, so she never thought about the son she was leaving behind. That's when he learned that love turns people into fools. And now he gets to be the fool! What fun.

      -Leon is about to continue to Violet interrupts him, noting that his mother seemed very important to him. He doesn't give an answer, but instead asks Violet that question. Nope, no blood relatives at all. However, there was somebody else who always took care of her, though they are separated. Leon asks if she feels lonely being separated, but she doesn't understand the emotion of "lonely". She understands what kind of emotion it is, but she can't tell whether it's happening to her or not. She just seems to have problems with any of those emotions that start with an "L". Love, lonely, loathing, lively, and so on. Man, we have a lot of "L" word emotions, don't we?

      -Leon can't believe her, but Violet is unable to lie, which tends to get her into trouble more often than not. Still, Leon wonders if she thinks about that person sometimes. She clutches at the Emerald Brooch, saying that she thinks about him all the time. Sorry, Leon, but I don't think this is happening for you. Though it seems like Leon is pressing it a bit, though out of his own curiosity. He asks Violet if her heart feels heavy after not seeing that person for a long time, which she confirms. Well, that's what it feels like to be lonely. After a moment, she does agree that she feels lonely from being separated from that person. Oh, poor Leon.

      -Nervous, Leon asks Violet what she would do if that person she missed was in danger during her contract with him? And there's no guarantee that she could save them, even if she went. Would she still go? She doesn't respond right away, so Leon apologizes, knowing he's being quite difficult. Violet says that isn't the reason. It's just, to her, this isn't even a question, but that he would not like her answer. Oh, this is going to hurt for you Leon.

      -To Violet, that person is her entire world, and without him here, she would rather be dead. Nobody tell her what happened to that person until we're absolutely certain she can handle it, okay? Okay. Leon is shocked by her words, but accepts it as him being rejected. Poor Leon. He stands up, commenting that she didn't seem like the type to say such things. After a moment, Leon begins to realize that Violet is in lo... oh, look! The trail is getting longer! I'm sure that's just an excuse to change the subject and that the tail isn't really getting...



      -...Just keep showing off, Kyoani. But as you can see, the tail is indeed longer, and everybody is looking and posing. Even a few of the Dolls, including Iberis, are there, watching it. Leon asks Violet if she's looking at such a beautiful sight? Yes, she is, because she's never seen a star that close before.

      NjSf922.jpg

      -I imagine it's very easy to get the two mixed up. Leon tells her that they are never going to see anything like it ever again. It's a once-in-a-lifetime encounter. Through the telescope, Violet sees it and agrees that it's magnificent. That's when she repeats a line from the book from their first day, that their parting wasn't a tragedy, for in the eternity of the land of fairies, they were blessed with a new vessel, and its soul would be protected forevermore. And Leon gets all sad now, because his brain is racing with emotions.

      -The next day, the project has been completed successfully, and the headmaster thanks them all for their work. We see the Dolls leaving, all waving goodbye to the staff. What a fun couple of weeks. We see Leon personally escorting Violet back to the tram, with her saying that, while their time together was short, she thanks him for taking care of her. At the tram, there's a long pause before Leon starts to talk. He says that he works in the transcription department now, but he wanted to collect documents, just like his father. He was hoping that his parents would return, if he waited here. It was something he wanted. As the bell rings and Violet begins to leave, he says that he plans to travel the world, just like she does. He knows he can face danger and die, but it's his choice to go down that path. Violet gives a warm smile, seeing his conviction, as he hopes to meet her again somewhere under the starry sky. I guess Leon won't give up on her after all.

      -With that, the two part, but Leon is stuck at the edge of the platform, watching her leave. He's racked with emotion, but decides to yell out if they can meet together again to watch the stars? She may not have heard it, but he's hoping all the best. In narration, he wonders how likely it would be to run into her again during his own travels. Perhaps, it's only as likely as seeing that comet again. Even so, he won't hold back anymore. Because Violet gave her the courage to move forward, beyond the doors that he locked himself behind. We focus on Violet, giving that smile, but then turns away, her smile gone and turned into something like a frown. Cue credits!

      So, I have a small complaint with this episode. A rather minor one, really.  What the hell happened with the confrontation with Diethard!? Seriously, don't leave us hanging like that if you're not going to follow up on it! Are these episodes out of chronological order? One would think that such an important event would get a follow up in the next episode.

      Unfortunately, I'm unable to find any information on the English voice actor for Leon Stephanotis. It's a shame, really, because he sounded quite good. If anybody knows who who it is, let me know.

      Violet has learned a new emotion, and we learn just how utterly broken she is. Will she learn what "love" really is? And will she actually kill herself when she learns the truth? Tune in on Friday to find out.

      Until next time, remember, when you leave your previous episode on a massive cliffhanger, always do the next episode on something not related to that, just to keep them guessing.

      Currently there are two guaranteed SSR Gacha banners up, one for the Knight class (Saber, Archer, Lancer, Ruler) and one for the Calvary Class (Riders, Assassins, Casters, Berserkers).


      I don't know which one to go for as I'm missing four on the Knight class but three on the Calvary class.  And I'm hesitant to do the Knight class because Jeanne is already NP 5.


      Who do you think I should roll for?


      EDIT: Just did my roll for SSR banner.  My Orion is now NP2.


      At least I didn't get another Jeanne.


      Also, there's a survey in the app that will give you a summon ticket.  Don't forget to do that.  For the future collaboration I put in RWBY, because why not?


      That said, how would the classes work out for the different characters?  I have a basic idea as to how it could work:


      Ruby: Archer/Assassin - This one is a bit tough, but I thought that she could qualify for either class.  You could also make an argument for Ruler, but that's actually for Saints so I don't think that applies here.  I put in Assassin because of her high speed, which can help get those crit stars.

      Weiss: Saber/Caster - Though I'd probably lean more towards Caster here.

      Blake: Archer/Assassin - Same as Ruby, though I'd lean more towards Assassin here.

      Yang: Berserker - It's not like there's a Monk class, and really, this is the only class she'd benefit from.  Her Madness Enhancement would probably be a D, though.

      Jaune: Saber - Well, that's obvious here, though unlike the others, he'd probably be a three star.

      Pyrrha: Saber/Archer/Lancer - She could actually qualify for three classes, given her weapon can be made into a short sword.  That said, I'd probably lean closer to Lancer.

      Nora: Berserker - Same as Yang, though I'd probably put her Madness Enhancement at around B or A.

      Ren: Archer/Assassin/Caster - Like Blake, but with a twist, since he has the ability to calm others on the battlefield, one could argue that he'd fit a Caster mold.  But in this case, I think I'd lean towards Archer.

    • Violet Evergarden Episode 5

      1 week ago

      CaButler

      Hello everybody, and welcome to our next exciting episode of Violet Evergarden, the show about a broken girl who's just trying to know what love means.

      In our last episode, Iris, the put upon newbie of the AMD department, has just been commissioned to write a letter! Hooray! And it's a request from her hometown! Less hooray. Still, a job is a job, and she's very excited about it. Too bad an accident in the hallway puts her arm in a cast for the duration of the trip. So who goes with her home? Why, Violet, of course! And she remains professional about the whole thing, even when it turns out the commission part was mostly a lie to get Iris back home. What great parents, right?

      Turns out, Iris may have been exaggerating her status back home, all of which Iris claims is untrue through her usual, deadpan ways. Still, there was a job, and it's to write out invites to a bunch of people to Iris' birthday party! Which includes a lot of men, like one Eamonn Snow. Turns out, Iris' mother wants her daughter to get hitched and move back home, something Iris is against. And as you expect, the party goes less than ideal, especially when Eamonn Snow arrives.

      We later find out why. You see, Iris was actually in love with Snow, and on the day she confessed her love, she was rejected. It was rather devastating for her, which may have played a part in her moving to Leiden and becoming an AMD. Still, this story she gives to Violet has her realize that she may have gone overboard and has Violet write an apology letter for the guest, including her own family. One that Violet plans to charge accordingly. And with that, Violet is one step closer to understanding what the words "I love you" mean. Will she learn more in today's episode? Let's tune in and find out.

      -We start out the episode at the Department of the Army of Leidenschaftlich. Inside, a high ranking military officer offers Hodgins a drink, but he politely declines. It's probably not good to be drinking on duty anyway. So the General gets to talking about Hodings, who is a civilian business owner now and no longer part of the army. This is very important to know, even if we already know it. And apparently the General here comments on how well Hodgins' business is doing, which is doing quite well. But the General gets all serious. What would happen should another war break out? That sounds like some foreshadowing to me. What, are you guys going to do a first strike against somebody?

      -Hodgins, apparently keeping an ear to the grind, asks if it's against the North? So does that mean Eamonn Snow is actually from the North? But he seemed to be handling the warmer temperatures well. The General explains that, among the Northern Alliance countries led by the Gardarik Empire, there are forces who oppose the peace agreement. Because who wants peace when you can have war instead! Especially if you're the ones making the instruments of war. Bunch of jerks.

      -After a long pause between the two men, the General goes on about a topic related to that, Drossel's published love letters. Apparently Drossel is a country who is a member of the Southern Union. And it turns out that there's going to be a union between the two countries that were former enemies in the form of a marriage. The other country is called Fluegel, and it appears that they are neighboring countries. The General explains that it was more of a symbolic gesture that would be a clear sign to the other countries that the war is over. During this talk, we see Violet on a couple of boats, including a smaller one passing by former guard turrets, heading to a very large house on the lake. Apparently whatever it is, Violet got selected for the job. Wait, but it's related to love letters, so wouldn't Cattleya be the better option? I hope this one gets explained.

      -We get no opening this time, just the title card, as Violet, in narration, tells Hodgins that she is leaving now. And soon she's in the Kingdom of Drossel and we see Violet walking along the street vendors, observing the people around her. In narration, Hodgins tells Violet that this is going to be a difficult job, but she's gained a lot of experience in the past few months. So she should have confidence in herself. It's great that you have such confidence in Violet, but given what the General said, wouldn't you want to send your best to handle the job? Really, I feel like Cattleya should be here.

      -Violet is escorted to the Royal Place. As the two soldiers salute one another, Violet goes to do the same, but before she can do it, her escort wishes her luck on her letter. You just can't get the military out of some people. So she walks down this shaded path towards the entrance to the castle, which has a rather large, lush garden on display. Feels like you can run around that for days. Inside, the headmistress announces Violet's arrival to the client, Princess Charlotte Eberfreya Drossel. She's talking to the door, though, with Violet curtseying to the door. There's a long pause as Violet holds the pose, but the Headmistress... arm maybe she's the Head Maid? That makes more sense. In any case, she gets agitated at the long pause and lets herself in, calling out to the Princess. Inside is a rather large room with a butler guarding one of the doors. He gets a nasty glare from the head maid and attempts to avert his eyes.

      OmFjfvT.jpg

      -I don't think that's working. The head maid is agitated some more, and in the next cut, she, along with Violet, walk into the bedroom, with a large bed who's had it's curtains drawn. The head maid recalls telling the Princess about this meeting. Violet introduces herself again as the head maid opens up the curtain to reveal the Princess.



      -That's a lot of pillows for one princess. Without missing a bet, Princess Charlotte introduces herself, but then adds that she's set to marry Damian Baldur Fluegel, the prince of Fluegel. She then tells Violet what she'll be doing. Even in bed she sounds elegant, but the head maid points out that it's completely ruined by her very appearance in that bed. Something tells me Princess Charlotte isn't a big fan of the wedding, but maybe I'm wrong.

      -With a clap of her hands, more maids appear, and we get a montage of the Princess being dressed up, almost like a doll. The Head Maid then explains what Violet will be doing. She is to write a letter to be published that will express the love between the Prince and Princess as beautifully as possible. It's to confine the people how wonderful the marriage is. Back in the first room, Princess Charlotte calls Violet "Doll", and tells her that this all lies in her ability to write a letter. Violet will do the job and promises to not disappoint her. Princess Charlotte is a bit taken aback by Violet's speech, as she feels like she isn't even talking to a human. Also as if she's talking to a doll. Just belittle the help, why don't you?

      -Princess Charlotte then asks how old Violet is. She apologizes to the princess, though, as she is an orphan and doesn't know her exact age. However, she's been told that she's around fourteen years of age. Really, fourteen? I would have pegged you for seventeen, personally. She certainly looks like she is older.



      -But I'm ranting about something unimportant... for now. Princess Charlotte recognizes that she said something wrong and apologizes for asking, then asks violet to accept her apology. Violet says it's not necessary, but then asks if her age is an issue for the princess? Nope, it's just that the princess was curious about what other girls her age felt. She then asks how much of an age difference is suitable, hiding her face behind a fan. We get a quick shot of the Head Maid who looks sullen, but then turns a piecing glare to Violet. But no such glares can affect her! But Violet is confused about the question, so the Head Maid asks if she finds the Prince romantically suitable? Violet, however, has never experienced romance before, but she' analyzed statistics based on literature from different places and eras, and based on that, there have been many marriages and lovers with large age differences. Long story short, age is not a barrier to love. Except when the girl is relatively young, then it's a problem.

      -Turns out, Prince Damian is twenty four years old, about ten years older than Princess Charlotte here. Would this be a problem for Violet? No, that shouldn't be a problem for her. But even if there is no love? Violet takes a moment to think, prompting the princess to ask for a response. Violet answers honestly, though, saying that love is something she has been thinking about for a while, so love and loveless marriages is a subject she's lacking information on, so she can't provide an answer at the moment. Oh, I think I see why Hodgins would send Violet. I'm still against it, but I think I can see it now.

      -But this answer doesn't satisfy the princess as she stands up, demanding to know what kind of life she's been living? They can't even have a decent conversation! So much so that Princess Charlotte is more worried about Violet's future than her own. And while we're on this rant, why can't Violet be more expressive when she talks? Well, okay. Just give her a moment and...



      -...What?



      -...What?!



      -I think Violet just broke the princess. Better get IT on the line. So they move outside, indicating some time has passed, as they're shown to be having tea and snacks. Violet has finished writing the letter and she's without her gloves. So we missed out on that reaction? That would have been interesting. Anyway, she provides the letter to Princess Charlotte, who immediately hands it over to the Head Maid. I guess we know who Violet has to impress. The Head Maid begins reading the letter. And... damn Violet, that was really good! She's gotten quite better over this writing business. We get various shots of people reading and hearing the letter, with more than a few female fans in the crowd, before cutting to the Kingdom of Flugel, where a picture of Princess Charlotte sits. Must be for the wedding.

      -The Head Maid approves, and even Princess Charlotte is blushing a bit from how good of a love letter it was. Violet doesn't give a reaction, though, which seems to irritate the princess. In the news paper, Hodgins thinks things are looking good between the two nations. Maybe this was less of a gamble than I expected? So the return letter is published, and the ladies are swooning over the prince. Violet is listening to the letter, but she seems to catch something in the letter and thinks on it for a moment. It's like she caught something that didn't sound right. As for Princess Charlotte, she leaves in a huff, making Violet wonder if she's embarrassed by it? No, I think she was seething with rage. The Head Maid corrects Violet, saying that Princess Charlotte's tears were one of frustration. I'm also going to go with rage. This should be an interesting tale.

      -Oh, and in a random comment, the Head Maid says that he's been with the Princess ever since she was in the Queen's womb. I guess she's feeling very protective of her charge. She follows the princess into her room, picking up the flower tiara off the ground. She goes to the bed and begins to lay into the princess, commenting on how she would feel if she were to be the mother in-law, as well as talking about how she loses control when she gets emotional. And this hurts her just as much, for she says that when Princess Charlotte marries into the Fluegel family, she won't be there for her. Oh, and her name is Alberta, by the way.

      -But the comment hurts Princess Charlotte. Why would Alberta say such a thing? Because she's a court lady of the royal place, so she belongs there and no place else. She does not belong to the princess. Yeah, Charlotte won't let that stand. She gets out from under her covers and tells Alberta that she belongs to her! She's the one who took her from her mother's womb, and she's the one who raised her! At the very least, she wants Alberta to say that she, the princess, belongs to her. Well, this is getting quite emotional, isn't it? The princess starts breaking down badly, washing her face with tears, ordering Alberta to get out, frustrated by everything. Alberta refuses, though, because she is a lady of the court, and the princess is her charge. And with that, the princess cries, because it's all going so horribly wrong.

      -We get a montage of letters being passed between the two countries as Violet asks how they should prepare the next letter. She's outside with Princess Charlotte, who has given up on this nonsense and says she doesn't care anymore. Violet can write whatever she wants. Besides, the prince's letters are written by a Doll, too, since Prince Damian is a very busy person. He's probably not even reading the letters, anyway. As such, it doesn't matter what the letter says, only that the people remain happy. Violet suggests that maybe she's not the one who is satisfied with the replies. It's actually not like that, though. She's meat Prince Damian once before, and the person she met would never use those words in the letters. So... self absorbed jackass? Because that's what I'm getting here.

      -Charlotte then takes off her tiara and asks to stop being a princess for a while. I don't think it works that way, Princess. She then turns to Violet and asks her to stop being a Doll right now and to listen to her story as her true self. That's very much impossible for Violet... because she isn't being a Doll. What you're seeing and hearing is her real self. After Violet agrees, Charlotte begins her tale. When she was of age, at ten, a grand banquet was held in Drossel. We see a young Charlotte sitting, watching the people around her, as she tells Violet that, at ten, her family custom's state that she is old enough to be wed. And almost every man she met that day was a suitor. She then gets up from her chair and walks outside, feeling depressed because it didn't feel like a birthday celebration to her, but a matchmaking party. I wonder if Violet is getting a small sense of deja vu here?

      -Princess Charlotte takes a walk in the garden, crying about her perceived treatment. That's when a man walks over to her. Clearly, this man knows who she is, but tells her to cry it out. But she doesn't want to stop crying, so he shouldn't say that. That's when mentions seeing her at the banquet and thought she was such a bratty kid. So he's glad to see her cry like this. Wow, what a jerk thing to say. But it's because he's seeing the real her. And that it was the worst birthday party ever. So he understands why she would want to cry like that. And with that, he leaves, Charlotte's heart all a flutter.

      -In the present, Charlotte is gripping her own chest, saying that the man spoke as himself, which is all she wanted, somebody to be their true self. That moment made her feel really happy. But that's when the war intensified, so the talk of her marriage got put off. But when the war ended, there was a marriage invite sent to her. She actually jumped at the chance, because she saw the good that could come from this union. So she researched and gathered information on how their union would benefit both sides. She did everything she could to get her father and the Diet to agree. She doesn't know what made them decide, but Flugel became their decision. So she's actually really, really happy about this marriage. Well, I certainly wasn't getting that vibe from earlier.

      -Of course, while Charlotte is happy, she doesn't know how Prince Damian feels about it? What if he's actually in love with somebody else? Oh, so that random guy was actually Prince Damian. I suspected as much. But still, she's worried about a lot of things, like their age difference. She worries that they won't like her in Flugel. And worst of all, Alberta won't be there for her. As such, she doesn't believe the letters she receives from Damian. There's no way he could feel that way. All she wants is to know how Damian feels about her. This lingers to Violet, because she's searching for her own answer for a similar question. Because it always comes back to that same question. What is love... baby don't hurt me... don't hurt me... no more.

      -Sorry, I just couldn't resist. Anyway, Charlotte is tearing up at the memories and her worries, because who wouldn't be that worried at her age? Violet decides to help the best she can. She stands up and tells her that AMDs write letters for their clients and they cannot accept requests outside of their duty. And with what she's about to do, she may be overstepping, so she asks Charlotte to bear in mind that her actions are unrelated to the CH Postal Company. Well, that's a bit concerning. So, what's the plan? To stop her tears! That's... that's going to be interesting.

      -Later that night, Princess Charlotte is in bed as Violet explains to her that the words Prince Damian's Doll wrote sounded familiar to her. This does make her concerned as to what her Doll has in mind. As night turns to day, Alberta wakes up Charlotte, who is sitting upright almost immediately. That seems unusual for her. Thus, a new letter is written, addressed to Charlotte. It's short, asking her if she remembers him, as he was in the garden with the white camellias on that moonlit night. The crowd is rather confused, but also point out that the letter is handwritten. Just what, exactly, is going on here? Princess Charlotte is told, which is when Violet arrives and explains the situation. She had a discussion with Prince Damian's Doll regarding their future exchanges. Now she has to write a letter to him, but using her own words instead. Just put the pressure on her, why don't you?

      -So the princess gets to writing, with Violet by her side. Charlotte writes that she does remember, and how he laughed at her tear-stained face. And she was totally offended by that, you jerk! But she never forgot the sound of his voice when he told her that it was okay to cry. As such, she never forgot about her kindness. In reply, Damian said he laughed because he thought it was so sweet that she let her emotions show. He didn't mean to offend her and apologizes, adding that while he is titled a Prince, he doesn't act as such, so don't expect him to be a mature man. He's only met her once before and would like to know what kind of girl she is?

      -Seems like, whatever plan Violet hatched up is working. And is fulfilling the duties of the CH Postal company, because the regular folk are loving it. In her response letter, Charlotte says that she's a hot-tempered crybaby, so she's probably not the woman of his dreams. We see some soldiers reading about it and are all "We must protect" mode, saying the prince needs to protect her now. In response to the response, Prince Damian has little sisters, so he's used to crybabies, but he isn't all that great and probably isn't the man of her dreams. We see some reactions to the responses and... well, they are interesting.



      -This is turning into quite the love story, isn't it? In the response to the response to the response, Charlotte says that it's not true, that she has already fallen head over heels for Prince Damian. And not the one in the letter, but the one who patted her head under the moonlight four years ago. In the response to the response to the response to the response... I think I'm losing track here. Anyway, his response is that all he did was comfort her. We see Charlotte thinking about what to write, so Violet offers some suggestions, which leads to her saying that she's treasured that one moment all these years, like a precious gem. He then response that he's insensitive and doesn't understand a woman's heart, which leads to this scene.



      -Are they already having their first fight? Though Damian's letter continues, saying how he might leave her to go hunting, or that she might find a better man. So why is Princess Charlotte pissed off?



      -Yup, first fight. Charlotte explains that she doesn't care about one's looks or wealth, only that they are someone who's able to act genuine around her. And apparently, the only person who has ever admitted to not being a good man is Prince Damian. She must be remembering a previous life where they both lived on the Moon before they were reincarnated back on Earth. If you don't get the joke, I'll explain it later.

      -But all that Usagi... her, Princess Charlotte cares about is a good man. So if Prince Damian goes hunting, she'll go with him. Don't you dare underestimate the Princess of Drossel! She's educated, so she'll be able to marry into any family. And she's probably have better aim than him, anyway! Sometime later, after the letter is sent, she's quickly regretting the letter, thinking that she'll be seen as an ugly brat. She wishes she had tagged Violet in to write the letter. Why didn't she or Alberta stop her? And just to make it worse, the reply comes in. The moment of truth comes. Who's blood shall be shed first?

      -The two young girls wait anxiously for the reply, which is "I'll be waiting for you in the garden under the moon tonight." I hope this doesn't get read out to the public. No need for them to know of a secret meeting between the two young lovers. When night falls, Charlotte goes out to the garden and waits for her prince. She's anxious and prays, which is when Prince Damian appears, reply in hand, looking the same as he was four years ago. He's rather impressed that his future bride is smart, strong-willed, and funny. She would make a good Queen. So screw this waiting around nonsense! Let's go get married! After a tearful moment, Charlotte accepts his proposal. Violet, apparently watching from the windows, comments on how their love is getting a happy ending. And who doesn't love a happy ending, right?

      -Sometime later, Alberta goes to wake up Princess Charlotte, but she's smiling this time. When she goes to draw the curtain of her bed, she hears giggling coming from nearby. She's confused at first until the princess reveals herself, showing that she's already awake. They grow up so fast. She gets reprimanded, saying she shouldn't be teasing adults, but Charlotte replies that she's a mature adult now. She laughs at her own comment go, making Alberta smile briefly before turning it into a sad expression. Well, now it's time for the princess to get dressed. That will still require an army of maids, I imagine.

      -And it looks like the whole town is in celebration. Must be time for the wedding. While the town celebrates, Princess Charlotte asks Alberta where Violet is now? They suspect she's out of the country by now, a job well done. We see that Charlotte is in her wedding gown as the credits and ending song play. Charlotte, however, wishes Violet was there to see her in her gown. Looks like the two became good friends in the end. Alberta asks if the princess' worries are gone now. What, are you crazy? They aren't! She feels like she's about to cry right now. Albert tells her that she'll need to refrain from that. She's going on a new journey, after all. One that requires you to move to the country next to yours and marry the prince of your dreams, who may be a worse hunter than you.

      -Still, while Charlotte is happy to marry Damian, she doesn't want to leave her home. But what she hates more than anything else is to be separated by Alberta, her surrogate mother. She understands all too well, placing a flower on the princess' head. She tells her surrogate daughter that she wants her to live a happy life. In response, Charlotte gets up, takings Alberta by the hand, and places it on her forehead. This action shocks Alberta, but she's doing all she can to keep the tears away as the two spend their last moments together. And no, I'm not crying! Not at all!

      -After the credits end, we see Violet and Cattleya standing at the side of the road. Geez, I wonder who Prince Damian's Doll was? Cattleya tells Violet that she owes her one now, as it was hard to convince Prince Damian to do all of that. And what does she want? Steak. She can want such expensive things sometimes. But she's shocked to see something on Violet's face. Something she didn't expect to see. Cattleya then comments on what a beautiful day it is. We see in Violet's hands two flowers, one white and one red, with the Royal Palace in the distance.



      -It does seem like a nice day for a white wedding. But we're not done yet! We're on a boat as night turns to day, with it making port at Leiden. As Violet gets off the boat, she meets a person she didn't expect to see. It's Diethard, and he looks pissed! He heard some rumors about her, that she became an AMD. And he has quite a few nasty things to say about that.



      -What a rude thing to say to a lady, sir. The dub goes with "You Monster", which I think fits better. Because we're in flashback territory as Diethard goes on to say that she killed so many of his comrades, and now she's writing letters with the hands that took so many? In the flashback, we see that this young Violet, from before getting Major Gilbert, and probably explaining how she would later meet up with him. But it seems like Diethard is still going on, ending with this:

      zSXo72U.jpg

      Hey, remember when this was a happy episode? So do I. What a mood shift at the end there. Which does raise some interesting questions about a particular scene from before, when Major Gilbert first met Violet. But then, when Violet went all murder happy on that ship, why did Diethard give her to Gilbert? That's an interesting question to ask.

      Violet again continues to search for her answer, but for this episode puts it on the back burner to help Princess Charlotte with her issue. The client comes first, after all. Speaking of, I had a feeling Cattleya wasn't there for the Princess was because she was unavailable in some way, but now we know that she was Prince Damian's Doll. Though I still have to ask, "Why Violet?" But then I realized that Hodgins may have had a good reason for this. Violet is honest, but blunt. Because of her own human emotion issues, she can't really express her feelings the same way as anybody else does, but thanks to that, it allows her to be a neutral observer, keeping herself objective while also helping the client with their requests. Plus, it seems like she's improved greatly, so she may have been the optimal choice in that regards, as well. Still, that's quite a leap from "helping out Iris" to "taking on a massive job that could result in war if they fail." Good thing the gamble paid off.

      Princess Charlotte was voiced by Stephanie Sheh, who voiced Lotte in Little Witch Academia, and Usagi Tsukino, aka, Sailor Moon, aka, Princess Serenity, in Sailor Moon and Sailor Moon Crystal. Now you'll get the joke and curse me under your breath for making such an obscure joke. It's fine. That happens to me often. Unfortunately, I'm unable to find the VA's for Alberta and Prince Damian, but if anybody happens to know, I'd appreciate that.

      As Violet searches for the meaning of those words, she runs into an unexpected complication. Will this lead her down the path to find her answers, or will it take a darker turn. Tune in on Sunday to find out.

      Until next time, remember, don't try to mentally break the clients. They'll forget to pay you if that happens.

    • Camelot is finished

      1 week ago

      CaButler

      I completed the main story in Camelot a couple of days ago in FGO.  Good singularity, probably the best one so far.  Good twists all around, especially one I didn't actually see coming.  And no, it doesn't involve the Knights you face off.


      With Camelot complete, there's only one more singularity to complete, but we won't be getting that until around November, I think?  Then after that is the last Singularity for the first part.  So, yeah, between now and then we'll be having nothing but events, and there will be a lot of events, including the anniversary and summer events that should be happening this month.  I think the anniversary drops this week, and if they move the second Camelot banner, we'll probably see that after the anniversary.


      Which means that for the Summer event, I think that will drop late this month.  Though they may also push it until August.  It's a long event, lasting twenty days in the JP server.  But, if we remain two weeks ahead of schedule, then I think it will start this month.  After that is the Prisma event, which will likely happen in late August, then the Halloween Event in October, as I imagine they'll rerun the first event, then rerun Christmas in November, giving us the final two singularities and the new Christmas event this month.


      As for the servants I'm going for, obviously I'll be going for all the summer servants, but my priorities are Lancer Tamamo, Archer Artoria, and Ruler Martha.  The others would be nice to have but they won't be a big deal.  After that the next priority would be Ishtar, followed by Merlin, Musashi, and King Hassan.  That's going to be a rather painful thirty days given how close they are to one another.


      Cleopatra isn't a high priority, as I have plenty of good Assassins.  And I've no interested in Illya as a servant.  So, yeah, after grueling summer I'll have plenty of time to save up quartz for the big ones.


      In the mean time, I've picked up another F2P game called Girls Frontline.  It's a mobile game where you take control of robot girls all named after the weapons they use in battle to fight other robot girls who fight with their own version of weapons.  Mostly it's all guns of some kind.


      It's... interesting, and I can see what market they're aiming for.  Surprisingly enough there doesn't appear to be a stamina bar, which is unusual in most F2P games.  But you do have resources to manage, requiring you to send your team out to collect them.  The gacha also requires those resources, but usually something you can customize, as well as needing specific contracts.  The sad part is that it's still RNG, even if spending more resources net you better robot girls to use.


      I'm still not certain how I feel about it.  The story is largely forgettable, so you'd just be here for the robot girls.  I've posted a couple of them in my image gallery if you're interested.  I'll keep at it longer but we'll see how it goes.


      Oh, and speaking of images, I added a few more other than the robot gun-trotting girls.  Enjoy!

        My mind set was: if you were in the first smash game you stay and Luigi, dr mario, dark pit, lucina lucario,meta knight can be skins for characters with special conditions can be picked from the roster as a skin.

        @CaButler Well to be fair the decal is mirrored on the other side, so they likely put it there first and then just mirror-copied it to the right side of the car as opposed to placing the decal itself

        No. I though I'd wait for Netflix to stream it, if they get the license.

        Borderline, and in my opinion, on the wrong side of the line.

        I see it's listed as questionable, but aside from Esdeath nearly falling out of her suit, I can't see anything that would get it deleted.

        But of course, it's all about the personal taste of the mod that will get you. I think it's fine, personally.

      I have been taking a lot of my anime choices recently from the image gallery you have been posting. Right now I am on Akame Ga Kill about 1/3 through it and already seen a number of characters die. I am guessing it gets worse as the series goes on huh?

        Yeah, and people are not about it.

        It seemed to go more with shock value than anything else.
