  1. :platinum: THE PLATINUM IS NOW MINE!!! :platinum:

    1Laf541e.png

        STAR OCEAN® THE LAST HOPE® -INTERNATIONAL- Platinum Trophy
    Congratulations! You've collected every last STAR OCEAN® THE LAST HOPE® -INTERNATIONAL- trophy!

     

    So *technically* this plat took me 5 years and 3 months to earn, but that's only because of the false start I had in this game a long time ago when I was woefully unprepared for what had to be done. I didn't make it very far into the game back then. I only truly began this platinum journey back in April of this year, and I've been slowly but surely working at it for the past 7 months. It has very much become a part of my daily routine at this point and it's strange to think that it's all over now. It hasn't quite dawned on me yet... I suppose now would be a good opportunity to bring up the in-game hours I put in going off my save files (rounded up/down to the nearest hour).

    Playthrough #1: 535 hours (the vast majority of the BT's were acquired here)

    Playthrough #2: 114 hours (the goal of this playthrough was to acquire Faize's BT's and farm Edge's 30k kill BT)
    Playthrough #3: 12 hours (purely focused on getting through Universe difficulty)

    Playthrough #4: 13 hours (purely focused on getting through Chaos difficulty)
    Total: 674 hours

     

    I think I can safely say this is the longest platinum I've ever earned. 😝 Now of course that total isn't completely accurate since there were times where I needed to step away from the game, reload a save, game crashes, etc, but I can't imagine it's too far off. This platinum is quite the beast, no two ways about it.

    I talked myself out of going for this plat for the longest time. I used to think it would have been a giant waste of time and instead just opted to play a bunch of other games in its place. Well, something just clicked with me earlier this year as I was coming to the end of my PS3 backlog, and I decided to give the game another shot. I hadn't even decided to plat the game at first, but that soon changed once I started getting further into it. This is just a fantastic JRPG, far better than I expected it to be. I really got into the story and took a liking to the characters (Japanese dub of course, not the awful English one). The combat is a blast too! After coming to the realisation of just how much I liked the game, I knew the platinum had to be mine. 

     

    I always imagined the journey for this platinum would be this grueling experience I would hate from start to finish, but it wasn't like that at all. The only part I found frustrating were the crashes, but thankfully those were limited to the 2 post-game dungeons. It was incredibly nerve-wracking whenever I had to go fight the Ethereal Queen since the trek there takes a good 4 or 5 hours without any save points. It always sucked to lose progress through no fault of my own, but it wasn't the end of the world. Even the game's "most difficult" BT which has been known to make people rage didn't seem that bad to me, but I suppose getting it on the first try is what makes me feel that way. 😛 But yeah, I found the rest of the plat to be pretty chill. It was pretty comforting to know that I could come home from a day of work and just fire up some grind in SO4 while I listen to podcasts or watch YouTube videos. Time well spent as far as I'm concerned. 😁

     

    So yeah, I guess that's pretty much everything I wanted to say. This is definitely one of my proudest plats to date and it immediately went in the old trophy cabinet once it popped. 😄 I'm really looking forward to playing Star Ocean: Till The End Of Time and Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness at some point, but for now, I guess I better find something else to fill the void this game has left me with. 😝

      @Honor_Hand Thank you! It makes me happy to hear that I've motivated you to go for the platinum yourself. I know you can do it! 😁 And yeah, I remember people talked down to this game a lot which is why I found it so surprising when it turned out to be as good as it is. I'm hoping that will also be the case with Integrity and Faithlessness. Also, I just want to say that I appreciate how you've taken the time to reply to my status updates on the game with words of encouragement. 🙂

      Thanks for the congratulatory messages, guys. I really appreciate it. 🙂

      @Redgrave I feel truly blessed to have earned the Doug Walker applause. 😄

       

      @pot1414 I think I'm gonna pass on that one. 😝

       

      @starcrunch061 I could definitely have been more efficient with my time and I'm sure I'd be able to cut it down by quite a lot if I decided to stack the game one day, but 450 hours to get the plat for the first time without purposefully reducing the playtime by saving and reloading after getting BT's seems pretty crazy to me. I guess your experience with other games in the series helped a lot. And yeah, when I was looking into what turbo controller to buy, I made sure to get one that was also compatible with PS4, specifically for the bunny races in Till The End Of Time. No way in hell I would do something like that manually if I can help it. 😛 I've heard Integrity and Faithlessness isn't that good, but I still think I'll enjoy it.
       

      @cr1s Haha, once I get into that kind of mindset, there's no stopping me. 😆 And not gonna lie, I have seriously considered going for the plat stacks. Should be a total breeze now that I've done it once before, right? 😝 For now I'm just happy with the one. And thank you for your supportive messages over these past few months! 🙂

  3. [Star Ocean: The Last Hope International] Today is a big day for me because I just got the trophy for obtaining 100% of the BT's. All 900 of them. This is the goal I've been working towards for all these months and I finally got it. During the grind for the last BT, I was getting this kind of anxious feeling in the pit of my stomach, I guess because it dawned on me that as soon as it popped, this chapter of the SO4 plat journey would be over. I really wanted to capture the moment, so when it happened, I grabbed my phone and hastily took a picture while the trophy notification was still on screen. You'll have to excuse the poor quality. 😅

     

    hNwN6BD.jpg

    That brings my second playthrough of the game to a close, with this one taking a modest 114 hours (55 hours of which was spent away from the game as my turbo controller farmed 30k kills). Now I don't want to get *too* far ahead of myself because I still need to complete the game two more times on the harder difficulties, but with no BT's to distract me, I should be able to get through them fairly quickly. I'm hoping to pop the platinum within the next 7 days. This is the final stretch! 😁

      Why would you put "drawings" in quotation marks? That's literally what they are lol. There's a big difference between fiction and reality. I only watch Joey's content casually, but he's absolutely right to take that stance and he has my respect for it.

  5. A question I have about Man of Medan.  Just got the game now, physical copy of it, but going to play it later on tonight most likely.  But my question is, without spoiling anything with the game, is the game suppose to be one story on its own? Cause I was certain I read something about 5 stories? Unless each game in the Dark Pictures thing is a story on its own.

    All I'm getting from the back cover of the case is something about a ghost ship.  But again, no spoilers please.

    1. Undead Wolf

      Undead Wolf

      Yes, they're all self-contained stories.

  6. [Star Ocean: The Last Hope International] It's been a while since my last update on this game. I've been making pretty consistent progress since then and I'm now just above the 500 hour mark. Today I managed to get a whopping 3 trophies in this game that were for obtaining 90% of all the battle trophies, fully completing the item creation list, and collecting 100% of all the weapon data. I'm practically done with the Wandering Dungeon now besides a bit of cleanup when it comes to the character specific -ology drops. It's a good thing too because making it all the way up to the Ethereal Queen on the 20th floor is quite nerve-wracking since the game has a tendency to crash in that dungeon. I've probably lost dozens of hours to crashes at this point which can be pretty disheartening, but I soldier on regardless. I'm not letting anything stop me get this plat.

    If anyone's curious, this is how the BT situation is looking:
    Edge - 96%
    Reimi - 100%

    Faize - 33%

    Lymle - 99%
    Bacchus - 100%
    Meracle - 98%
    Sarah - 97%
    Myuria - 96%
    Arumat - 94%

    Faize's BT's are going to get done next playthrough which is why that one is much lower than the others. I'm essentially done with Edge's BT's until next playthrough as well because they should come naturally when I grind out his 30,000 kills with a turbo controller. So by my count, I just need to get 14 more BT's until I move onto the next stage of this epic quest. The end of this playthrough is in sight. I can feel it! 😁

    1. Undead Wolf

      Undead Wolf

      @Honor_Hand There are actually two bonus dungeons. While there are Grigori in the Wandering Dungeon, it's much easier to farm the Grigori kills in the Cave of the Seven Stars. The floors are fixed in that one and you can skip around after to whatever floor you want after you get through it once. Thank you for the good luck wishes. 😁

      @Honor_Hand Ah, that one. Yeah, the Grigori are bosses and you only encounter 6 of them through the course of the main story. However, there is a bonus dungeon you unlock late in the game which has 3 more Grigori and you can endlessly respawn them by defeating the last boss in that dungeon. It'll be quite the grind, but it's nothing I'm not used to. It can be done on a single playthrough.

      Hmm, that doesn't ring a bell. Faize does have a BT for defeating 130 different types of enemies, so maybe that's the one you were thinking of? There are 154 enemy types in the game, including 24 bosses, so you have to be pretty diligent about killing the missable enemies and landing the killing blow on bosses as Faize. It shouldn't be too bad though since I'll be controlling him for the most part.

      It will indeed. I don't think I'll ever top this platinum when it comes the sheer amount of dedication required. I've been playing it for most of this year and it has become a part of my daily routine. It will feel strange when it's not a part of my life anymore, but I look forward to finally having the ultimate JRPG platinum under my belt. 😁

  9. [Genshin Impact] I don't care what anybody says about Amber being bottom tier and one of the worst characters in the game. I mean, just look at this. How can you NOT love this?

     

    F06aMsX.gif

     

     

    format,jpg

     

    She may be the character everybody obligatory gets at the start of the game, but come on guys, this is prime waifu material, in my humble opinion.

     

    I'm having a blast playing this game btw. It may have gacha elements in it and it may be always online, but damn, I'm having fun. It's being a long while since I last played a legitly good adventure game that was this beautiful. The PS4 version of the game could probably use some optimization in its performance, but other than that, I really don't have much to complain about. The voice acting is splendid for all of the 4 available languages, and there's a TON of it too. I'm at Adventure Rank 13, on the very first part of the game, and there are plenty of (good) quests to do. More than once I have had these moments where I'm walking around in the environment and I just have to stop and gawk or stare in awe at how beautiful and vibrant everything looks.

     

    So far I've been able to get most of the waifus I wanted, which includes Amber, Fischl, and Xiangling. I've only rolled 4 times with the resources I've obtained while playing the game. The only waifu I'm missing is Keqing. I could probably do well with both Klee and QiQi as well, but so far so gad. Those will come in due time. Wish I could play a bit more every day, but eh, I do the best I can when time allows it.

     

    See you around Teyvat! :D

    1. Undead Wolf

      Undead Wolf

      People say she's bottom tier? Haven't played the game myself yet, but just based on design alone, I think she's pretty great. I've enjoyed watching the various Amber doll dancing videos going around like this one. 😄
       


      I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying the game. I'll admit that learning it had gacha elements gave me pause, but I've been hearing a ton of positive things about the game over these past few weeks and I'm looking forward to starting it myself once I get a few things off my plate (Star Ocean). I know the game is a bit stingy when it comes to gacha rolls, but it's still pretty incredible how much content there is for something that's free to play.

  11. While everyone is raving left and right about their PS5 pre-order, we men of culture have more important business to attend to. Of course, Sony's new console is cool, shiny, and all giggity. But you know what else is all giggity? This beautiful set of kittens that got available for pre-order today. Actually, I'm not sure if the pre-orders started today, I just noticed my email was spammed by all these shops trying to sell me some neko love after I woke up.

     

    They're quite a massive step up in price from my normal figure purchases. In fact, I think I'm probably insane at launching this amount of money at 2 pieces of pretty plastic... But come on, wouldn't you agree they are quite the desirable piece of pretty plastic? At least they are for me. :awesome:

    FIGURE-118846_11.jpg

     

     

    So, there have been a number of Nekopara figures that have come out in recent memory, with each one of them being pretty difficult to resist, but this set here is the one that finally broke my wallet and made me invest in it for their eventual release in August 2021. No kidding. I've been meditating this all day long, with my heart pushing towards getting the figures, and my brain (and wallet) telling me the responsible thing of not getting myself tangled in all this.

    ...

    In the end, my heart triumphed over my best judgement and I placed my pre-order on AmiAmi right this second before publishing this status. Not exactly sure of how I'm going to come up with that amount of money at that time, but we'll see. I have plenty of time to think about it.

    Also, in case you were wondering, I finally received this one earlier this week. She arrived safe and sound despite everything. Took a crapload of pictures too, I'll be sure to share a (somewhat safe) selection of them with you tomorrow. :D

  12. I don't feel any need to rush out and buy a PS5 on day one. The only compelling launch title as far as I'm concerned is Demon's Souls, and it does look amazing, but I have a backlog *full* of games I'm looking forward to playing, so it can wait. I've decided that it's going to be my 400th platinum anyway (original game was my 100th). I also intend on making it the very first game I play on PS5, much like how Bloodborne was the first game I played on PS4. It will be a special experience I'm sure. But yeah, considering how I'm only at 326 platinums right now, it's probably going to be a good year or so after launch when I'll get a PS5. I've never bought a console on day one and I see no reason for that to change now.

    But screw PS5, the far more interesting topic to me right now are the Hololive EN vtubers. I've been obsessively watching their streams to the point where I haven't done much else. They truly are a blessing. 😇 Anyone hyped about the PS5 clearly doesn't have the right priorities. 😛

      @ShonenCat Agreed. The next biggest game that's coming at launch is Spider-Man: Miles Morales, but that's just a standalone expansion and is also available on PS4. Not really anything to get worked up over. It'll take a while before the console becomes a "must-own". And yeah, the PS4 still has plenty of life in it, as does the Vita. 😉

  14. :platinum: #468 (+ 100%) - Worms Battlegrounds

     

    1L53175d.png

     

    My 2-month platinum drought has ended with my first Worms completion. ^_^

     

    Good and fun game for the most part, and it would've been better if it weren't for those technical issues. Thankfully, I only had the game crash once near the beginning of a mission and glitch at the very end of a mission, so it wasn't too annoying. Not that bad of a 100% in terms of difficulty. The trophy for completing all Worm Ops missions under 8 minutes was the hardest one as a few missions were quite tricky, but everything else was fairly straightforward.

     

    I have most of the Worms games in my backlog (I'm currently only missing Revolutions Extreme and WMD) and plan to go for the entire series eventually. Worms (PS3) will most likely be my next Worms completion as I've already obtained the online trophies in that one.

     

    As for what's next, Hitman 2 will be my biggest focus during the next few weeks, and I'll also go back to some of my other unfinished games here and there.

      Congrats man! I haven't played a Worms game in *forever*. Used to be pretty into the series back on PS1. Good luck with Hitman 2! 👍

  15. Well, for the first time in roughly two weeks, I fired up my Playstation 4 Pro after a long day of watching Opening Weekend of the NFL (Raiders/Panthers on CBS, Cardinals/49ers on FOX, and then the Sunday Night Football opener between the Cowboys and LA Rams on NBC) and finally got back to slowly chipping away at the trophies for Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment. Since most of the trophies for the game require quite a good chunk of time being invested into the game, I decided to go after the trophies that were much easier to get my hands on and obtain without too many issues.


    I ended up spending around four hours late Sunday night into early Monday morning working on getting as many of the primary female NPC characters you can interact with in the town to maximum affinity (Lv. 5 on the romance meter for each of those characters). Managed to get three bronze trophies out of my gaming session (got max affinity with Asuna, Lisbeth, and Leafa) and got the affinity with Sinon & Silica up to the low Lv. 4 affinity range. Man...talk about trophies that you need to have a decent amount of patience with in order to get. Each of the three NPC characters I got to max affinity took around 50 minutes apiece to make it happen, and boy did it require a lot of "special" dialog sessions near the town fountain, in Kirito's bedroom, and at various spots around town. At least the game rewards your hard work and dedication towards getting maximum affinity with lewdish artwork of each female NPC character in question (hidden away behind spoiler tab):

    Now...I can understand the one with Asuna (your character is married to her in the game, for those who don't know)...

    ...but wasn't expecting the ones for the other female NPC's (especially considering that you are married, wouldn't Asuna get mad and kick your ass/divorce you for engaging in a full-blown harem under her nose?):43Pmyzw.jpg

    Questionable in-game harem/relationship shenanigans aside (what are you doing, man? That blonde one you are in bed with is your actual sister!), I look forward to knocking out the last two bronze trophies for getting max affinity with both Sinon and Silica. Then I won't have to worry about running around town with the select NPC in my party, sitting through the same conversations over and over again in order to boost affinity, and taking each girl back up to Kirito's room in order to do that whole bed conversation nonsense (at least the lewdish artwork slightly makes up for the painfully-repetitive grinding for affinity) anymore. Then I can finally turn my attention back to helping the lower-leveled NPC's (Lisbeth, Leafa, Sinon) in the in-game friend list level up by taking them out into the field to grind for XP in many fights with various monsters in differing areas before moving forwards with the story.

    Well, this post carried on longer than what I was expecting it would (hooking up my portable hard drive up to my PS4 in order to fish those in-bed scenes and getting them onto here via Imgur took longer than I realized). Have a good night, everyone!

    (PS: If anyone has a problem with the images hidden away behind the spoiler tag, please message one of the awesome Moderators on the PSN Profile forums and see if they can remove them if you deem them to be too lewd. I can't remove them since there is no edit button on Status Update posts...)

  16. Today is when the English Hololive vtubers are debuting. I'm glad I have the day off so I can catch all of their streams. 😁 As of typing this, Mori Calliope and Takanashi Kiara have already gone, but we still have three more debuts to go, plus the collab stream with all of them after that. Obviously it's too early to say which one's my favourite, but Mori-sama definitely captured my heart, especially after seeing her rap. 😍

     

     

    I really like her design and personality. The others have a lot to live up to, but I have high hopes them. Really looking forward to the other debuts. If anyone here is actually interested in checking them out, I'm putting links down below to their YouTube channels and Twitter accounts. If you're a normie, just ignore this. 😛

  17. I want to play yakuza, it looks ridiculous and that's great. I've heard zero is a good place to start, is that true? Or the remastered trilogy?

    I have ps3/ps4/vita if that helps. Though I dont think theres a game on vita and I dont have a large memory card for it anyhow.

      If you don't want to start with Yakuza 1 & 2 on PS2, then 0 is the next best place to start. Definitely better than jumping in with the remasters of 3/4/5 or Kiwami.

    Like all yakuza games, what a ride...

     

    I really have no idea what's next. Feeling empty all of a sudden now that I beat the game. We'll see!

      it's the first yakuza 3D yakuza game as Yakuza 1 and 2 had stationary cameras so this was a drastic change for the devs.


      Wrong. Ignoring the fact that fixed camera angles during the city roaming segments of the game doesn't mean it's not 3D, Yakuza 3 wasn't even the first game in the series to have an over the shoulder camera. Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan says hi. But who am I to question the "Yakuza Master"? :giggle:

  20. Look who just got SO4's hardest BT on their first attempt. This guy. 😁

    I'm surprised by how smoothly it went tbh. I was extremely nervous going into it given all the horror stories I had read and everything I had to keep track of during battle. I basically just spammed attacks with Meracle, Arumat, and Reimi, and left Sarah in the corner of the arena on healing duty. I didn't even blindside the Ethereal Queen. Once I saw her Rush Gauge start to rise in Rush Mode, I risked doing a few more Dragon Roars with Arumat, swapped out Reimi with Lymle, and EQ was dead in 2-3 Hound Grenades. Nobody died and I had about 6 minutes and 30 seconds on the timer I set. I must have been extremely lucky or something. What a relief to get that done! 😅

      @starcrunch061 Thaaanks. 😝 Thankfully a friend of mine who already has the plat has been giving me advice throughout, so that has definitely helped things go smoother than they otherwise would have. I haven't done the math on remaining BT's (I don't have the game running atm), but I'd say I have roughly about 80% of them done. Only character I have 100% with is Reimi, but a lot of the others are close. Got the 75% BT trophy about a week ago now. Still a lot to do, but I'm getting there.
       

      @Masamune My apologies for bringing up bad memories for you. 😛

  21. Took me a little longer than expected but this has been finally paid off and has been already shipped my way via DHL. She released like a month ago, but I didn't want to pay for her right at that time due to monetary concerns. I've been covering part of my family's expenditures during the pandemic, so that's been taking a small toll on my finances for a few weeks now. However, this week I was in a comfy enough position to put the money forward and pay for that big invoice. God bless AmiAmi for giving us 2 months to pay our invoices during these tough pandemic times. That's kindness right there. :3

    I'll probably need to wait a month or a month a half for this to arrive, but I'm glad this cute piece of kitten ass will be coming to her rightful home soon. Can't wait to gawk at that nice poster she'll be coming with too. :awesome:

     

    I also have a Senran Kagura-related figure that'll be arriving soon. I wanted to pop my Platinum in Senran Kagura Estival Versus to show off my figure alongside it, but oh shoot, it's taking waaaayyyyyy too long to arrive, so I'm just gonna pop that one already and show off the figure later. :P

  22. My new trophy count has been very low over the last few weeks as I've been dedicating most of my time to Star Ocean: The Last Hope. I just popped the 75% BT trophy, so I figured now was a good time for an update. I'm currently around the 310 hour mark. I wasn't keep track of quests completed or treasure chests opened, but I still managed to pop both of their respective trophies for completing/opening all of them, so I'm pretty happy with that. Most of the item creation is done, but I can't go much further with it until I beat the Ethereal Queen, which I've been putting off for as long as possible. I've still go to do a few more Wandering Dungeon runs before I'm confident enough to tackle the hardest BT in the game, AKA defeating the Ethereal Queen in under 10 minutes as Lymle. I'm feeling pretty optimistic all things considered. The platinum journey so far isn't as gruelling as I was expecting it to be, but of course this may change depending on how many failed attempts I have with the Ethereal Queen BT... 😅

     

    I intended to start Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow at some point over the last few weeks, but I've been too invested in Star Ocean. It might sound crazy to some people, but even 310 hours into the game, I'm having fun just grinding stuff out as I listen to podcasts and watch YouTube videos. It's a very chill experience. When I started this platinum journey, I was planning on finishing the rest of my PS3 backlog alongside Star Ocean and ending my time with the PS3 by popping the plat. I don't see that happening at this point though. I want to keep playing it. 😝

      Thanks for the encouragement, everyone. 😁
       

      @Honor_Hand Yeah, the battle trophies are pretty nuts, mostly due to the sheer amount of them. The upside of that though is you're constantly popping them, even on accident, so it feels like you're always making progress. Such a variety of different things to do as well, so if you get bored of focusing one one set of BT's, you can just switch to another. None of them are that difficult except for the aforementioned Ethereal Queen BT with Lymle.

       

      From what I've read of the Ethereal Queen fight, your description of it sounds about right. 😅 I'm not taking any chances with her. All my characters are already max level (255) and I'll make sure I have all the best equipment before I even attempt to fight her. That's why I'm gonna do a few more runs of the Wandering Dungeon.

      But yeah, I think you should give the plat another go. Just make sure you're fully prepared with a walkthrough and other guides close at hand. There's a lot you can miss or make more difficult than it should be.

       

      @Sword I appreciate that! 🙂 Yeah, the game isn't bad at all. In fact, I thought it was pretty awesome. I really enjoyed seeing the story to its conclusion. I'll be on the look out for when you start the game yourself, but if I miss it, I'll wish you luck here as well. 😄
       

      @funboy1246 True. I've never been one concerned with trophy streaks or rising up the in leaderboards. I just play whatever I feel like, and that's probably why I've lasted so long as a trophy hunter. 😉
       

      @dertswa687o Thank you! I will definitely do that when the time comes. Damn, you've gone 3/3, huh? I'm not expecting things to go as smoothly for me, but it would be amazing if it did.

  23. I'm considering getting back to Yakuza series after playing the first Kiwami.

    I don't know how many people will see this, but to all Yakuza fans, after playing the first one, should I start Kiwami 2 or go back to Yakuza 0 and then 2?

      Go back to Yakuza 0. Honestly, it would have been better to start with that one, but too late now.

  25. I was convinced to make an AniList account recently, and I must say, it's a big improvement over MAL. The overall design is more modern-looking and it has a lot of features I appreciate. I think I'll make this the primary way I keep track of my anime watching from now on. I don't know if anyone else here uses it, but you're welcome to follow me on there if so. Or you can just look at my list and mock me for my taste in anime, it's all good. 😝

      @mecharobot Yeah, I get that. I guess for me, I like the feeling that I'm working towards something, and seeing those stats like watch time and total # of anime watched rise gives me a similar kind of feeling that raising my PSN level or trophy count does on here. Plus, it's nice to have an archive or everything I've watched just so I don't forget.

       

      @Honor_Hand Oh cool, I'll have to give him a follow on there. Using AniList made me realise just how outdated MAL is. It's kind of like going from playstationtrophies.org to PSNProfiles. Apart from the sleeker design, I think what won me over was stuff like activity log/home page feed, which makes it much easier to keep up with what people you follow are watching. It has better stats, no limit on the # of favourites you can assign, and you have more control over the list itself (like making entries private, using different scoring systems, and adding notes). Oh, and there's even a dark mode! 

       

      I haven't had any problem with the database yet, and was even able to find the "18+" entries with ease. 😝 MAL has the advantage when it comes to the information, recommendations, and reviews, at least with the more niche shows, but it's still decent enough on AniList. I think the advantages outweigh the negatives.
