While not much happens, the sleep over was very entertaining.
While I have talked a bit about the subtitles and dubbing debate early in my anime blogging career briefly, there is something that caught my attention regarding localization. Just this week, there has been news that Tecmo Koei won’t be having dual audio to the English version of Atelier Ayesha. As you would expect, the whole fandom blew up in rage just like that and advocating boycotts. However, there have been recent instances in Anime where licensing companies such as Sentai Filmworks excluded the Japanese Audio from Blu-rays, most notably the Persona 4 The Animation to make the release unattractive for reverse importation. Of course, that too had repercussions.
It’s a new year and as promised, I will be doing another Let’s Play. This time, I will be doing this one on a pretty niche Japanese RPG. As the title suggest, it’s about making items and this is the third game in the Arland Trilogy.
Like last time, I will be making a post for every two episodes, which will be about an hour long. I am planning to record enough before college starts so I have enough content before Spring Break, which I plan to record the rest. As always, if you have any suggestions on improving future episodes or have any thoughts, just leave them in the comments below.
For now, enjoy the first episode. I plan on publishing the next episode next week. Please note that I’m using the Japanese audio, not the English Dub.

Besides blogging about anime, I am a big gamer as I played video games since my childhood. In the past, I was a big Nintendo fan and I’m still am. However, when I started learning Japanese since 2011, I find that playing Japanese Games can be a good way to practice what you learn while discovering new vocabulary and Kanji. Of course, the Playstation Vita made that all possible when I got one on my birthday. Since I have played with it for almost five months, I want to share my experiences. (Image Source)
