Perfectionist Collect all the other trophies Difficulty: 5/10 Enjoyment: 8/10 Time to platinum: 1 week, 6 days Tearaway was a great game which used all possible PSVITA functions. I had a lot of fun with this game even though I'm really not good in platform genre and usually I try to avoid these kind of games. As for the trophies, the game was very easy except three trophies for finishing the level without loosing a single stamp. I could complete the game in 3 days but I didn't have motivation plus these level were kind of stressful for me. Other than that I recommend it!
Guess I'll join too. 1) Arcana Heart 3: LOVE MAX (PSVITA) - 0% 2) Criminal Girls: Invite Only (PSVITA) - 0% 3) Gal Gun: Double Peace (PS4) - 0% 4) Gal Gun 2 (PS4) - 0% 5) Omega Quintet (PS4) - 0% 6) Senran Kagura: Estival Versus (PS4) - 0% 7) Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash (PS4) - 0% 8) Steins Gate: Elite (PS4) - 0%
Odin SphereObtained all trophies! Difficulty: 3/10 Enjoyment: 9/10 Time to platinum: 29:03:01 (1 week, 3 days) Odin Sphere was one of the best looking games from Playstation 2 era and my favourite game on this console. I loved everything in this game: beautiful 2D graphics, breathtaking soundtrack, amazing characters and the great story. I pretty much remembered all of the story but I wanted to immersed yourself in it once more. And I didn't regret it. The game was pretty much the same as the original version. There are a few things I didn't remember like phozon abillities, not-consuming power gauge attacks or Churning Rift of the World (which wasn't hard at all. I would say it was quite boring). Also, I didn't remember the game was that short. I think I spend a lot of more time with the first Odin Sphere. Other than that I definitely recomend it!

Mandarake is a dangerous place, can't blame you for that. I don't own anything from Yukari Tamura (yet), though I've heard her first album is really rare. There might be a better price elsewhere, but right now the lowest price I see is around 26000 yen on amazon.
I've only listened to the first two Petit Milady albums, I really need to get back to those. It takes me forever to get through discographies sometimes because my album rotation is all over the place. Speaking of catchy songs, I finally got around to listening to ClariS recently. I'm on their second album and I'm liking it a lot so far. I've also been listening to Eri Kitamura; her newer stuff is closer to J-Rock/Metal rather than Pop, but I think it works well with her voice.
Where to even begin… The first song of hers I heard was Innocent Starter back when I first watched Nanoha a few years ago. After hearing the opening a few times, I knew I had to hear more from the artist. This was the only the second time something like that has happened to me (first time was with Magia - Kalafina). Anyway, Innocent Starter has been one of my favorites ever since. I've probably listened to Alive & Kicking well over 100 times in the last few years. Going backwards a bit, I'll try to list the rest chronologically (possibly with some kind of comment or story).
From early on, I'd have to go with Transmigration and Looking on the Moon. Protection (great saxophone playing here), オルゴールとピアノと- holy style -, and climb up are all classics from Magic Attraction. Next, Be Ready! (love the guitar in this one) and refrain -classico-. Going back to Alive & Kicking, I already mentioned Innocent Starter, others from that would be 大好きな君へ、Tear's Night, Take a Shot, Cherish, and Abilities. When Take a Shot plays in episode 11 of Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha is one of my favorite moments in any anime.
I can't mention Hybrid Universe without mentioning Eternal Blaze, though I also love You Have a Dream (this rendition of it from a few months ago is fantastic), Brave Phoenix, 星空と月と花火の下、and Naked Feels. Great Activity starts off strong with Bring it on!, then there's Orchestral Fantasia, Massive Wonders (can't think of many songs that get me hyped up quite like this one does), Seven, and Heart-shaped chant.
I can't help but pair Ultimate Diamond and Impact Exciter together in my mind as two of the best albums. From Ultimate Diamond, 悦楽カメリア is one of my absolute favorite songs. Because of this song I learned the Hirajoshi scale, and it forever changed how I play guitar. I've also charted the song in Stepmania; that's how much I love it. Trickster is great, and I always play it if I'm traveling for some reason and find a DDR X, X2, or X3 machine. So far I've played it on X3 in the southern California area, and on a bad X2 in Las Vegas. Maybe I'll add more locations to the list someday lol. My other favorites from the album would have to be Brand New Tops, 少年、Dancing in velvet moon, and 深愛. When it comes to Impact Exciter, my favorite songs from this probably make up half the album. Time to Impact Exciter is perfect as a sort of extended intro to Next Arcadia. ミュステリオン is straight up metal and I love every minute of it; I can only imagine how hard it is to sing some of the higher parts. As for the rest, I also love Silent Bible, Young Alive! (whoever composed this really nailed the chorus here), Dragonia, 恋の抑止力 -type Exciter- (I might've screwed up the kanji on that one), Don't be Long, and ７月７日.
Rockbound Neighbors and Supernal Liberty are two of my least favorite Nana Mizuki albums. I don't if it's that they just didn't click with me, or if it's something else; either way it is hard to explain. One thing I can say for certain is that the vocals are not the problem. Both still have good songs, but as a whole there just seems to be something missing. Rockbound Neighbors is decent and has アヴァロンの王冠、Naked Soldier, Bright Stream, Star Road, Synchrogazer, and Happy Go Round. Supernal Liberty starts off strong with Virgin Code, アパッショノート、and アンティークナハトムジーク、but aside from 僕らの未来、the second half is pretty forgettable to me.
Lastly, Smashing Anthems and Neogene Creation feel like quite an improvement over the previous two. In fact, I'd say this pair of albums is almost as good as Ultimate Diamond / Impact Exciter. Smashing Anthems has two of my favorite Symphogear songs, Glorious Break and Exterminate. In addition to that, Bracelet, レイジーシンドローム (another song where the chorus really stands out)、禁断のレジスタンス、エゴアイディール、エデン、and アンビバレンス are all excellent. Neogene Creation has my number one favorite Symphogear song, Unlimited Beat (I also charted this song in Stepmania). As for the rest, Stand Up!, Alone Arrows, Twist & Tiger, Rock Ride Riot, はつ恋、and Starting Now! are my other favorites.
I didn't include Cannonball Running because I only got around to listening to it recently. Typically I feel the need to listen to an album several times before forming an opinion on it. Also, this went on way too long, but I guess that is obvious at this point lol.
I currently own four Yukari Tamura singles: Spiritual Garden, Douwa Meikyuu, Hoshizora no Spica and Endless Story. Yes, I've heard that her first albums are very rare and expensive, but still I wanted to focus on singles. First, I'd like to complete all of Nanoha singles, because these are my favourites atm.
Well, I like Claris as well. Recently, I really liked the Summer Tracks album - Natsu No Uta, where they cover a Japanese hits from the years 60-80. You definitely have to check this out (btw there are only five songs on this album).
So far I only have two singles from KitaEri: Destiny and Birth. I had the opportunity to buy album Sho × Mei -SHOMEI- (KitaEri) and Citron no Ame & Harumachi Soleil (Yukarin), but I forgot about auctions and someone bought them. I really regret it to this day.
Wow, I did not expect such an extensive reply. You have a lot of favorite songs from her albums, but I definitely prefer songs from singles.

Yeah I've seen 'I have a dream video'. It's nice to see Nana playing the piano. Have you seen this maybe ->
I love her smile when she made a mistake
Hirajoshi scale? Kiita koto nai. But it looks like A minor scale to me at least from this video ->
Once again replying late (sorry about that). Regardless of the reason, I guess it's not that uncommon for me to go offline for a few days… or weeks. Anyway, I went on a trip with my sister for the sole purpose of unlocking songs in various arcade rhythm games. There's an event ending soon, and none of the arcades in my area are open currently. So naturally, we drove about 330 miles (531 km) just to unlock some songs. While unrelated, I also haven't exactly been well lately.
I'll definitely listen to Natsu no Uta when I get the chance. Only five songs won't be a problem compared to all the other albums I'm listening to. Since I got into J-Metal about a year and a half ago, it's only expanded my never ending backlog of albums to listen to.
I probably should've limited my list to one or two songs per album; I didn't mean to go off like that lol. Even though I didn't list some of those as my favorites (it's hard to remember them all), I have to agree with most of the songs you picked. While I know all of the main songs from the singles (they're usually on an album), I'm not as familiar with the songs exclusive to singles. What I keep meaning to do is group all the single exclusive songs together into a playlist or something similar. That way it's easier to listen to all the songs I've missed at once, though that will probably take a few hours.
I haven't seen that video (yet), but I rarely go on youtube these days. I subscribed to the official channel a while back, at least. Due to copyright I think the entire channel might've been blocked in the NA region until recently. About a year or two ago, I remember trying to find live videos and there was next to nothing.
I hadn't heard of the Hirajoshi scale either until I found it (sort of) accidentally. When I first heard Etsuraku Kameria I remember really liking the main guitar riff, so I tried to figure it out by ear. Normally, I'm okay at figuring stuff out by ear, but I couldn't seem to understand what the hell was going on in that song. I decided to look up Japanese scales, and the first one I happened to find was the Hirajoshi scale. Upon playing through it a few times on guitar, it became very clear that it was the right one.
Yes, I ate only the dishes from Maury's. I have all 60 recipes (that'd be 54 excluding take out food). Hmm, I already ate every single one three times (there is no bonus icon for eating them). So do I have to eat them all at least one more time?
