leasspell_dael: FF13's Serah Farron standing in profile (ff13 - serah - solitary)
I finished Final Fantasy XIII-2 a couple of weeks ago, but wanted to let my thoughts percolate rather than make a knee-jerk review. I think I've reached the point where my opinion isn't going to change, and I have a solid grasp of why I feel certain ways about certain aspects. So, here's my review. All spoilers will be written after the second cut. There will be spoiler-space in-between the cuts if you're reading the first section.

Graphics: 9/10
Characters: 10/10
Battle System: 8/10
Story: 8/10
World Building: 7/10
Music: 8/10
Overall: 9/10

TL,DR; Very fun, with lots of replay-value. Significantly improved from its predecessor.

Wow, quite a wall of text, huh? And guess what?! I'm not done yet!! :D

But I will leave it there for now. Next time: game as fanfic, Chrono Trigger, Snow/Serah, Lightning's knowledge of the future, "hope", Noel's inexperience, Etro's successor, Yeul's connection to Caius, historia crux shape, fanworks

I was introduced to the anime "No.6" around the time that episode nine was released. As there were only two more left to go, I decided to wait until the series was finished before writing a review. That was several weeks ago. I've been thinking about it since then, trying to decide what to write.

First of all, let me say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. Post-apocalyptic dystopia? Sign me up! )

So, if you enjoy character-driven anime with a sci-fi/dystopian bent, this is a definite must! What I'm enjoying even more is a fan-translation of the novels that's slowly (but brilliantly!) being released. Now I'm getting all the extra goodies that were left out of the anime too!

So I finished Final Fantasy XIII over the weekend; have been playing it off and on since it came out. I know I'm late to the game with this, but here's my two cents on it. All spoilers will be written after the cut.

On crossovers. My self-indulgent rambling, feel free to skip... )

Title: The Man With No Name
Author: Frostfyre
Fandom: Doctor Who (10th Doctor, post-Runaway Bride) and Firefly (post-Movie)
Rating: Teen
Status: Complete @ 32 chapters with 99372 words

Summary: He hadn't really counted on getting into a pub brawl over the color of his coat on some speck of a planet, or signing up with a crew of petty criminals. Still, the Doctor had always wondered what really happened to those Lost Colonists from Earth.
