    Shelia ♠ in sword boy hell
    I came here after seeing your comment on Yagen's nendo page, and I just want to say that...

    ...I never expected to find a kindred spirit who loves Heshi (and Odagumi) on MFC, considering what the Western fandom is like for TKRB.

    I don't know why this makes me so happy, but--thanks to Kaku from One Piece--as of today I can finally say my age like an old man. =w=

    Inoki (4年前) #1555372It was! I was so psyched that one of the first things I did after classes resumed the following semester was to tell my professor all about it. >u<
    Favorite character? I'm plenty fond of most of the cast (give or take a couple of exceptions)! But I think I can pick a few:
    - #1 would definitely have to be Oda Nobunaga, for several reasons. I admire the historical figure himself, not because of his personality or his practices, but because he was a highly individualistic and motivated man who took charge of things by working towards unification. Without him, Hideyoshi and Ieyasu would've been nothing. (Besides the game version fits my moe profile for villains perfectly.)
    - #2 is tied between Kuroda Kanbe and Matsunaga Hisahide. The only reason they're not in the running with Nobunaga is because their historical selves never made their intentions sufficiently clear. Matsunaga was a dashing enigma of a gentleman who had a terrific reputation for double- and triple-timing. Kanbe (who was the first character I played) was much luckier than the series makes him out to be in that he worked for both Nobunaga and Ieyasu in addition to Hideyoshi. On the other hand, I adore their game personalities: Matsunaga, a destructive engine of chaos, is utterly terrifying. Kanbe by contrast is a lot like Lady Fate's whipping boy who can't seem to catch a break (something I think we can all relate to!).
    - I downright loved Capcom's interpretations of Tokugawa Ieyasu, Ishida Mitsunari, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Mori Ranmaru in the series. They'd all be tied for #3 in my book.
    Still, it's just as I said before: I don't really *hate* anyone. Though I admit there are times I do wish Kasuga would take things down a notch, and I'm none too keen on Akechi Mitsuhide/Tenkai... but I'm sure that's simply a matter of my being a Nobunaga supporter.

    Ooh, a lot of depth to your decisions. I love how Crapcom interpreted the relationship between Yoshitsugu and Mitsunari- I found the ending to one of Yoshitsugu's routes really bittersweet in particular. And Mitsunari's alternate costume depicting him as a fallen angel was a nice touch. But even if I didn't like some of the characters initially, fully leveling them up really made them grow on me. I'm not crazy about Kasuga either but I found her a lot of fun to play as (but I guess that's to be expected of a ninja). And Matsunaga makes a great ruthless villain- it left me in so much shock when he just burned Ieyasu alive and made Mitsunari watch. It's a really great series, a shame it's not very popular in the West (no thanks to Crapcom, of course).

    Inoki (4年前) #1551967Wow, um... thanks~ >///<
    How I got into the series is kind of a long story. ^^;; Six or seven years ago, I noticed (half of) the series's name in a doujinshi monthly called Comic Box JUNIOR. (Takeda-gun was apparently all the rage back then.)
    Anyway, in my last year of college I was required to study Japanese history for my major/degree. It just so happened that the last thing we covered in the first semester was the sengoku period and Battle of Sekigahara. (In fact, my professor studied the historical Mouri Motonari quite extensively.) Upon dismissal from school for intersession, I returned home to find that my brother's friends had convinced him to pick up a copy of Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes (PS3).
    Although it didn't do anything for him, I recognized it from several Comic Box JUNIOR issues I'd collected over the years and decided to give it an honest try. The rest is history. ;9
    The funny thing is I told myself I wouldn't become super-obsessed with the series when I first started playing the game. Too bad I was no match for the Japanese games and the anime.

    Oh, I got into it with that game too! Although I don't have a story, I just decided to try it out because it was cheap. ^^' Never expected it to be so addicting, though! So you actually studied Japanese history for your major? It must've been cool seeing the characters in the game after learning about the actual people they were based off of. Who's your favorite character?

    Inoki (4年前) #1547682I just noticed your comment. ^^;; Heheh, my bad~
    Thanks! That's not my entire collection, though. It's also comprised of some miscellaneous doujinshi, most of the official comic anthologies for the games, and four of the five Gakuen Basara official comic anthologies (volumes 2-5). (>v<)o

    Aw man, ideal Basara collection right there! You're like, my hero. I hope you don't mind me asking, but how'd you get into the series?
