  1. The trophy unlocks right when you have all the entries. You could be at the beginning, end, or anything in between; it doesn't matter.
  2. When I saw the thread title, I instantly thought of this: I expected it, but with the way people are reacting, you'd think the title was "Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood"...
  3. I just finished Girl Friends earlier. It's the first manga I've read physically in almost ten years. Funnily enough, I hate using e-readers and other such things. However, 99% of the time I read manga on my phone. It's probably because most of what I read never gets officially translated. Well, that and it usually costs over ten dollars for one volume... I'm way too cheap to pay full price. Anyway, I went ahead and bought all three volumes of Hana to Hina wa Houkago (also by Morinaga Milk) on ebay. I've read some of it, but I never finished it for some reason.
  4. I can't remember the exact amount, but there are well over 100 chapters of Yuru Yuri now. How much of that was animated, I have no idea. More Kiniro Mosaic sounds good to me. I haven't read the manga, but I think there are at least eight volumes.
  5. I'll never get tired of LINE stamps. I'm not sure if it's enough material for a whole season, but the manga goes far past where the anime left off, I believe.
  6. Nice! I wasn't expecting that. While it's not really related, I'm still hoping for a fourth season of Yuru Yuri.
  7. I didn't know that, actually. That's my fault for just assuming it was a localization change. A lot of that seems to be hard to find out, along with the reasons why these changes get made. From what I've seen, most companies seem to take the "keep quiet and hope no one notices" approach. Needless to say, it never works. I'd be more accepting of a creator wanting to change their own work. However, I get the feeling it rarely happens due to the author deciding it themselves, but rather a group of people calling for something to be changed. As for Stephen King, I haven't read any of his books. That's a good example though, since I have read quite a bit about them, specifically the more offensive parts. (For better or worse, I spend a lot of time reading the news.) There's one passage from The Shining that I couldn't even post here without it being heavily censored. I don't think I can speak on whether it's "wrong" or not for it to be changed. Personally, I wouldn't agree with it being changed regardless of how offensive it may be considered now. I don't think history should be changed, whether it's fictional or not. I know media goes through many changes during production; that's normal. What bothers me is content being cut or changed after the fact, especially when it has nothing to do with the original creator(s). Giving it more thought, I don't think calling it "missing the point" is the right way to explain it. I think it's merely a difference of opinion. Simply put: You don't care, I do, and that's fine.
  8. Yeah, I usually avoid these kinds of discussions. It pisses me off, but I'm not losing any sleep over it or anything extreme like that.
  9. When it comes localization, I don't see it as self-censorship. If the localization team makes a decision to remove or censor something, can it really be called self-censorship? They had nothing to do with the development of the game. For example, just look at the dumb shit NISA has done in the past. True, but I absolutely despise the idea that works of fiction should be "updated" to fit these changes. It's just part of being a purist, I guess. I probably should have been more clear on that. What gets to me is people who miss the point and say shit like "it's just a small change, doesn't matter" etc. To me, it's not about the amount of content being cut, or what it is. I simply don't want anything to be cut, period. I haven't played any of these games (yet). If/when I get around to it, I'll be sticking to the PS3 versions.
  10. Omega Labyrinth Life? I'd rather see Omega Labyrinth Hometown.
  11. Censorship apologists not being the cause of the decision is something I can agree with. However, I still think they are part of the problem. I guess that would make anyone who continues to buy the games equally part of the problem. Those who don't care aren't vehemently defending a company that lies to them, though. I don't expect people to boycott the game over this, especially those who agree with the change or just don't care. Likely what will happen (and is already happening) is this: people will complain on the internet, buy the game anyway, and nothing will change.
  12. Sure, they can do whatever they want. That doesn't mean I have to be okay with it, though. I never said we should force companies not to make changes to their own products. I'm not sure where you're getting that from. If you really want to argue semantics, then no, it's not censorship. As you said, it was a non-compulsory decision. In other words, it's technically not censorship. However, none of that changes the fact that they cut content, and lied about it.
  13. Fair enough; the apathy that others have towards these changes just pisses me off. People are free to buy a game for whatever reason they want, of course.
  14. Well said. I don't have much to add; I just wanted to say that I agree 100%. Talking to people who are okay with censorship, or worse, those who are for it, can feel like speaking to a brick wall. Which doesn't happen enough, sadly. Censorship apologist ♥s are the reason this shit continues to happen.
