Sword of Sorcery
A little while ago, Compile Heart announced Fairy Fencer F, a brand new game from the team that works on Hyperdimension Neptunia. It'll have art by Tsunako(the Hyperdimension Neptunia artist) and music by Nobuo Uematsu(of Final Fantasy fame) and his band, Earthbound Papas. I can't wait.
I recently read Identity Crisis, and I thought I'd share my thoughts on it. For those who haven't heard of it, Identity Crisis is a seven-issue comic book limited series from DC. The story begins with the Elongated Man's wife, Sue Dibny, murdered in her apartment while the Elongated Man is on a stakeout, and focuses on the Justice League's investigation to find the culprit as the other heroes' family members are threatened. Think of it as a superhero murder mystery story. It's a very dark and tragic story. I honestly don't know what to say about it other than that it has a couple of genuinely sad moments, such as the aforementioned beginning and,
when Tim Drake's father is killed defending himself against Captain Boomerang.
*End of Spoiler*
The ending is also seriously messed up. I'm not going to share the details, because you should see the ending for yourself, but it is shocking. I read the series online on DC's official online comic reader.
Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet
Gargantia takes place in a future where humanity has reached out into space, and the Earth has been submerged. The main character, Ledo, is defeated in battle against an alien enemy known as the Hideauze and finds himself stranded on Earth with no way to leave. He and his Machine Caliber, Chamber, are welcomed onto a fleet of ships and befriended by a young messenger named Amy. The series has been pretty good so far, with an interesting story and well-thought out character interaction.
Amy is probably my favorite character so far.
Mushibugyo is about samurai fighting giant bugs. The main character, Jinbei Tsukishima, joins the insect magistrate in his father's place to combat the menace of insects threatening humanity's survival. He is joined by a kunoichi, an onmyoji, and a seasoned warrior in the war against insects. Mushibugyo is awesome! It's just a lot of fun to watch.
Jinbei, the goofy hero of Mushibugyo.
Haru, the first person Jinbei meets in Edo. Her grandfather manages the local teahouse.
Hibachi, a ninja who is a member of the insect magistrate along with Jinbei. My favorite character so far in the series.
