The story continues on. Looks like I’ve got a detour in my plan, though, starting tomorrow. Let’s see how much I can get done. So much to do, so little time.
Many thanks to the locations that put up with me and my camera, and of course to all the readers that are enjoying these.
I’ve also got the first post translated now, thanks to my friend Ayu Ohseki. :D

The little poms realized that food is a much needed necessity on their trip. Thankfully, they found a local restaurant very unique to the area!
First on the menu: this restaurant is the only place to serve okonomiyaki in the area.
Of course, they also chowed down on the night’s sushi special, as well.
But the best part of the night- the chocolate parfait! It was very daunting to them.
It took quite a bit of work, but it was doable!
The poms were finally able to defeat the parfait and call it a night.
This is quite the vacation. Who knows what’s in store in the coming days!

I have come to learn that I’ve had a number of Japanese readers view my images. While I won’t have much time with the others, I did throw a request to a friend (C_Ling @ Twitter) to translate these sentences into Japanese. So this post will actually be bilingual! Yay!
Nine Days to Zero
Our little Poms, on their new adventure, seek a way to figure out where they are.
“We need to find higher ground!” said one as they looked around the park.
So the Poms got to work on climbing the steps!
“I see something!” called one Pom.
Unfortunately, all they found was a ‘human sundial.’ Amazing, yes, but no help at all, sadly.
So they hitched a ride. Might as well enjoy this strange place while they can.
Bonus! – Cellular Tower. No, I wouldn’t let them climb it. :(
I have made it no secret that this release is one of the ones I’m most excited about at the moment. I didn’t have time to do much of anything for the other games that had been released up to this date. However, I have started getting my photography bug running. As such, you will get ‘Ten Days to Zero.’

With only ten days left from their three year hiatus, a trio of poms had to take a train to Crossbell.
When they realized their folly of taking the wrong train, they had to take control of the train and attempt to stop!
However, when the train came to a stop, they realized they were far, far away from home, and had little way to get back.
What will the little poms do now? Stay tuned!~
What am I currently playing? A few things here and there, but I’ve actually been distracted from doing much of anything due to the advent of The Legend of Heroes Zero no Kiseki.
I am absolutely unashamed about my obsession with Falcom and their games. Back in 2004, when I was having a very rough time of things all over, I preordered a little gem called The Legend of Heroes VI: Sora no Kiseki. See one of the original demo movies for it.
I had no clue, at the time, that I’d have in my hands what I’d say today as arguably the best RPG I’ve ever played.
The first game is a little slow, and the level of Japanese made playing it SO hard. There’s a lot of tricky writing in it, but it is also a very tricky story. However, if most people have been following it, then you would know that Sora no Kiseki does not end as just one game. Then there’s Sora no Kiseki SC, and Sora no Kiseki the 3rd. What’s up with this?
Well, much to my absolute dismay, Sora no Kiseki ends on a cliffhanger.
Any of the people who finished the game in 2004 were forced to wait for the second chapter. The ending was a ‘demo movie’ for the second game.
It took 18 months. SC was released in March 2006. And it took what was already a marvelous RPG and turned it into a beast. It showed that the world of Zemulia and Liberl is one of the most in-depth I’ve ever had the chance to experience in a game. By the time you are done, you’ll not only know the geography, but you’ll know a lot of the history, the organizations that support/hinder Liberl, the nation’s economy, and political standings to any number of other nations around it.
While SC’s ending is very open still, I felt that it had enough closure to be comfortable. What I didn’t expect was the sudden release of Sora no Kiseki the 3rd in July of 2007. This takes what was already known from FC and SC, and openly bridges it to Legend of Heroes VII. This is meant to be a gaiden- a side story. This follows a new pair of lead characters and tells the story a wildly different manner, as well as give hints to one of the more (surprisingly!) secretive organizations of the Zemulia Continent- The Septian Church.
It took all the nice things about SC’s ending and blew them wide open.
So now it’s come to three years later. September 30, 2010- we finally see our new game, The Legend of Heroes Zero no Kiseki.
It now sets the stage to Crossbell, another nation in Zemulia, and follows the characters Lloyd Bannings and Elie MacDowell. What does this new story have in store? I’m willing to bet that what’s in the video is only the bare surface of this game. I won’t be surprised if it can’t be contained into one RPG- Falcom got me on it once! But I’m eager for this ride!
13 days left.
I’ve waited for this for three years. Thirteen days should not be this hard.
Did you know I had a livejournal devoted to my gaming exploits? You didn’t? Well, allow me to tell you about it. I kept falling off the wagon in an attempt to blog my adventures in the realm of video games. But since I’m a major part of the Sanctuary Crew, I figured I might as well get a few things straight.
But I got done with school, and you can see that I’m a bit scrambling to pick up the pieces of my life and start over. This will likely contain the things that I don’t want to spam the primary news blog with, mostly little commentary on my adventures in games, which trophies I’m gunning for in whichever playstation 3 game, any giggling over a newcoming game, any new previews coming out. That sort of thing.
I’ve gone by the names Kirsy, ysriK, Togabito Ion, and more recently Kaycee and omgfloofy. I love photography, video games, and web page development. I work for a major telecommunications conglomerate, and want to be involved in video game localization at some point.
Maybe I can start back up with my LJ stuff here, and other random things. I’ll try to make it worthwhile to people’s interests, however.
