Stopped reading there. Anime is not my little pony and I don't watch anime with animals.

Meh - honestly, a lot of those are just variations on what's been in TV shows for eons. That's especially true for shows aimed at kids.

Oh, and I expect the boring male protagonist is that way because it helps the teenage boys identify. If you're big into cars and the protagonist is big into painting, it's going to be all the more obvious that he ain't you. If you're big into cars and the protagonist doesn't mention cars, well, maybe the subject just didn't come up.

Child prodigies are smart, sure, but not every child is a prodigy, but many anime like to make the excuse that the "loli" is there because of her intelligence, and we've all known people who were able to move up a grade or two in school, but many of these examples are a bit extreme.
Great guns - how many paragraphs in that sentence?? (Also, I've never known anyone to move up a grade in school.)

Even despite "generic dude protagonist", I am still stoked to play this. I tried the demo on PS4 and really enjoyed it. It's just so freaking expensive!

But it's still near the top of my list. So yes, please Joxer, keep being enthusiastic about it! It seems like a deserving game.

Trust me, the game is so awsome I just can't wait to return to it.
I adore characters, I adore the turnbased model, and I can't say anything bad about maps - it's like a collection of puzzles you need to analyze, strategize and then solve in the most efficiant way possible.

I can't understand much reviewers who said "meh", then again I love to think in a game, not grind.
