♡ Square Enix Goodies! Part Two ♡

So in the last post, I showed you some goodies I purchased from the Square Enix European store!

I accumulated some points from CDJapan so I decided to treat myself some more and bought:

Final Fantasy XV soundtrack!





Yoshitaka Amano's amazing artwork

Wish we got to see the Kings and Queens of Lucis/ Lucii (at the top of the picture) in the actual game... 、ヽ`(~д~*)、ヽ`

Saw this on the last page of the booklet, so cute haha!

Song Recommendations:

Sunset Waltz
Starlit Waltz
Omnis Lacrima
Veiled In Black
Rodeo de Chocobo 
(this song gets stuck in your head for AGES)

There's so many great songs on this album!

Final Fantasy XV Official Comic Anthology!

This looks really good!

The best thing about it is that there's furigana so I can look up the words easily!

I won't post anymore pictures because I don't want to look into the book to much and spoil it for myself haha!

Despite its flaws I liked FFXV for what it was. Yes, it could've been better but I'm willing to give SE a chance to improve it. The DLC's so far have been good but there's a lot of gaps in the story to fill in so I'm looking forward to this being remedied. However the soundtrack is AMAZING so being able to listen to it wherever I go is perfect for me.

AND the Assassin's Creed Festival dlc is AMAZING...despite the bugs...c'mon, it's a Ubisoft game! (ꐦ ´͈ ᗨ `͈ ) It's out from now until December. I've already collected everything I wanted but there's a couple of minigames I still need to try.

Also, it's so much fun doing the Leap of Faith (and Prompto being so fed up with it after the first time haha)

I'm so attached to the characters of this game ahhh ₍՞◌′ᵕ‵ू◌₎♡

They definitely make up for where the story falls short...  

So that's it, yaaaaaay! My next soundtrack to buy will probably be for Kingdom Hearts 3! I've been waiting patiently for that game (۶ꈨຶꎁꈨຶ )۶ʸᵉᵃʰᵎ

Have you listened to any of these soundtracks? What do you think? 

Thanks for reading!

♡ Lazy Oaf Summer Sample Sale Haul! ♡

Hello everyone! (,, ・∀・)ノ゛

How have you been? ( ᵕ́ૢ‧̮ᵕ̀ૢ)‧̊·*

*awkward laugh* 

Yep it's been awhile since I've posted. I went to Sweden for 5 days at the end of May and I've been busy at work and other things...I've restarted my Japanese studying (L O L) and I've been getting along reasonably well going through a free course on this website! Need to study more regularly though... (;*´Д`)ノ

But anyway the reason why you're here is not to read my ramblings but to see my haul! I don't know if I mentioned the first time I went to a Lazy Oaf sample sale, but as it opened at 10 I thought that getting there for 9 would be a reasonable time. WRONG! At 9 the queue was massive and by the time I got through the doors all the items on my wishlist were long gone. So when I found out about the summer sale I did not make the same mistake twice! (ง •̀_•́)ง

It's Star Wars Day! ♡


I'm sorry, I just had to! (´艸`〃)

It's Star Wars day!! (۶ꈨຶꎁꈨຶ )۶ʸᵉᵃʰ 

To celebrate I thought I'd make a little post about some of the merchandise I bought recently.

Rogue One

This was such a great movie, I saw it twice in cinema! Yes it had its pacing issues and some other problems, but that iconic Darth Vader scene at the end (you know which one I'm talking about) made up for the first 45 minutes of the film. ٩(♡ε♡ )۶

♡ Random Fandom Kingdom Hearts Mystery Box! ♡

I've never experienced buying a loot crate/mystery box before so when I saw Random Fandom's Kingdom Hearts box I just had to order it! This year is special: it's the 15th anniversary of the Kingdom Hearts series! I thought I'd celebrate it by buying this box (and of course attending the orchestra, playing the games over and over and yelling at my iPad because of Kingdom Hearts Union Cross).

Before I reveal the contents just a little warning. So I follow Random Fandom on twitter and a couple of other Kingdom Hearts fans as well. Because of this I actually got spoiled on most of the items that were in the box which is really a shame. I mean in hindsight it's kind of my fault, I should've unfollowed until I got mine but I didn't really think that I'd see so many pictures and posts about it. So there's not gonna be any OMG WOW (((o(*゚▽゚*)o))) reactions because...I already knew about most of the contents haha. *shrug*

So here's my box! The official name is the Keyblade Kingdom mystery box.

♡ Kingdom Hearts Orchestra -World Tour- in London! ♡


Just, wow. What an experience. 

I'm so glad that I wrote all of my thoughts and feelings down as soon as I got home yesterday, because all of a sudden I'm unable to put any of my emotions into words. It was just incredible! (((( ;°Д°))))

This is the second time I've been to a live orchestra, the first being for Final Fantasy XV last year, and they are both very unique experiences. With FFXV, the game hadn't been released yet and the only thing I knew about the story and characters were from the accompanying film Kingsglaive and the Brotherhood anime short series. I hadn't emotionally connected with any of the characters yet, but was still able to appreciate the imagery created through the songs. Playing the game afterwards (it was really good at its usage of music throughout) helped to deepen my appreciation of hearing those songs live.

However with the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra, the combination of hearing the music performed live and the visuals on the big screen touched my heart. I'm sorry, there's no less cheesier way for me to put this haha! There's nostalgia of course, because I've been with this series since the game first came out 15 years ago. Just hearing the strength of those familiar melodies through the orchestral arrangement and seeing the stories of the characters play out on the screen, it really felt like I was playing the games for the first time again. I was able think about the series in a new light.

Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo Update! Part Three ♡

So after my second post on the Amiibo update that I made the other day, I decided I wasn't going to do anymore because I feel like I've covered most of the major changes? There's plenty of little things that I haven't found out yet that I'm sure I'll discover as I play the game more and more.

Anyway I got a message from my friend asking about inviting villagers using Amiibo cards. I answered so confidently that they'll visit in the original campground like the normal random villagers that come and go. HOWEVER I realised that this might actually be wrong and that I should think before speaking heh... So I tested it out...
