Free Space: Summer 2016 Fancy Title the Fourth


Random Anime of the Week: Regalia

Hahaha just joking. This series has been halted for weeks.

Random Anime of the Week: New Game

So yeah, I'm not sure if the general opinion of this series is positive or negative. I've seen opinions that this series is realistic in the portrayal of starting your first real job. I've seen opinions that the series does a poor job of showing a realistic working environment. What do readers here think?

Oh, I should probably give you my perspective. I work at a software company with a pretty relaxed culture and I'd say...maybe 40% accurate? We've definitely had all-nighter situations and I've seen people with tents in their office for spending the night (I wish I was joking). People tend to walk around and socialize during the work day as well. I've definitely experienced Hifumi's crisis from the screenshot above.

Where we differ is mostly in organizational structure. I definitely got a lot of training as a fresh hire, whereas Aoba just jumps in. Also, most of my time is spent getting people to sign off on what I'm doing...I could only wish for the time Aoba has for technical stuff.

Random Music of the Week: Kaze no Uta

I'm really excited about the full version of this song coming out. If you were to force me to pick a favorite opening song of this season, I'm pretty sure this is the one I'd choose. The "Celtic" style fits with the music in the game and I think it's a solid song by itself.

The Berseria opening song was released at the same time...I feel like I'd like it a lot more if it didn't start with that weird violin piece. Weird that I don't like a violin part, but it sounds too fake and lasts too long before the jrock starts.

    *hides from Regalia*

    I did a week's work experience as a tester for a local game company. Seeing Nenecchi doing something similar brought back some memories, but there were a few things that were a bit wtf. The overall atmosphere was kinda similar, but it had the opposite problem in terms of male/female ratio D:

    Woah, we agree on the OP of the season... I mean, there's quite a few I really like, but Kaze no Uta is great.

    ...do we disagree on music that much? D:

    *has a seizure*

    I only noticed it in New Game because there isn't a single guy haha. But yeah, glad I'm not the only one getting a little annoyed by Nenecchi.

    I'll PM you my favourite song :P Plus, there's also all the covers that you share with us. You wouldn't do that unless you loved them, surely... :L
