Moved this post ahead since this week’s Famitsu contains an important announcement: Yoshida’s Famitsu column will be ending soon (around #139, I believe), because he has too much work and doesn’t have time to write it anymore. I’ll still translate all of them, of course! But it’ll be a shame to see the column go… (Understandable, though. Yoshida’s time must be extremely valuable at this point)
As for what comes next… well, I have 32 columns to think about it lol.
I still can’t remember what I wanted to say in the previous post…
(This column is not FFXIV-related)
In recent news, I’ve opened up a CuriousCat: https://curiouscat.me/Shini-tan
For the unaware, this is an anonymous Q&A platform. Feel free to ask anything, whether it be about translations, games, or anything else! I will try my best to answer all non-troll questions.
I feel like I had something else to announce here, but I can’t remember… hmm… oh well. Hopefully I can knock out a couple more posts before Shadowbringers drops (but no guarantees since I have to prep for AX).
(This column is not FFXIV-related. I’m starting to think that the non-related columns are going to outnumber the related columns soon)
This was originally the Summer 2017 anime post, but it was way too embarrassing to post as-is, so I changed the title… I think this will be the norm from now on, because even writing the year is embarrassing… さすがに恥ずかしいよ…っていうかやっぱ投稿したくないよwww OTL
According to the notes I wrote for this post, I set a personal deadline to post this by the end of 2018. …Yeah.
For the record, not EVERYTHING was super late. The movies were watched in theatres and I think about half of these were at least watched within a year of airing. I realize I’m not making the best case for myself… (I had also totally postponed all of the 2-cour shows to the Fall 2017 post because I have no shame). But I guess if I watch some (even) older stuff too, I can get away with just making this a general “anime I watched” post instead of a seasonal. Although lowkey it’s kind of sad whenever I don’t recognize any recent song in AMQ u_u
The past couple of posts have been personal stuff, so I guess I’ll get some translations ready for next time? 🤔
…Wait, this is my personal blog, right? (I bet my friends wish I’d ramble here more often instead of spamming them with messages)
For those who are unaware, IFFT is a new anime convention that ran for the first time this year (with a previous IFF event in Osaka) and completely upstaged Anime North as far as the more “hardcore” crowd goes. Now, I’ve never actually attended AN despite it being the local con… I went to offkais outside of it, but I’ve never purchased a pass or gone inside the actual venue, because there wasn’t enough incentive to. A few of the iM@S seiyuu guests were tempting, but still didn’t push me to drive alllll the way to the venue (which isn’t even in Toronto) and buy a pass for just one thing.
Meanwhile, IFFT’s Japanese guest list was: Kawasumi Ayako, Ueda Kana, Shitaya Noriko, Sugiyama Noriaki. TAM and Akai Ryuusei. DJ Kazu. Suzuki Konomi. NAKAJIMA MEGUMI!
I didn’t go to AX the year that Mamegu was there… so the moment they announced her, I knew I was going to do whatever it took to get those concert seats–and that ended up being the platinum pass at $400, which sounds like a lot at first, but it’s in CAD and it’s way cheaper than AX premier. It also ended up providing a LOT of value, but I’ll get into that later because I should probably talk about the actual events first.
Uh… I guess I will put the summary tag here lol, before I end up with a wall of text on the blog homepage.
This one is… kind of FFXIV-related? It’s about the Yoshi-P Sanpo events.
10-day Golden Week coming up means that I’m actually not that busy right now… perfect for some Yoshi-P catchup!

Not much Persona content to work on these days (for now, at least) so I’ll take what I can get. To be honest, it’s probably a good thing that this is light work u_u
The dev Q&A is pretty casual, but hey, canon is canon. Vol.1 only covers the beginning of the game up to the buffet on 5/5. More info about the project can be found on Persona Central.
No spoiler tags used in this post. Proceed with caution.
Merry Christmas! Still super busy, but figured I should crank one of these out for the holidays.
