A week in links (Outfit Malfunction version)

So earlier this week a new Fate/Stay Night game was announced for the PSP with pictures and gameplay screens galore.  Unfortunately it's not Takeuchi Takashi-san who's in charge of the art direction.  I don't know who is, but let's just say their approach toward the series is a bit…interesting.

I'm probably thinking too deep about this.  This is their first entry into the RPG world, so what do they do?  They copy Persona, for crissakes.  I can't even tell if they're trying for a dating sim approach too — I mean, they created two completely original main characters (a boy and a girl) as high school students, so I'm not sure what to make of this.

Meh.  I guess it doesn't hurt anyone if Saber's dress is see-through…

So this was a pretty good week in terms of news compared to last week's.  I covered most of the announcements early already, so what's leftover is a bunch of random humor I found.  There's some good stuff in there too; there's a link for the Fall 2009 anime season, an anime art contest from KyoAni, and a crazy cat that will do sneaky things while your back is turned!

The last episode of Eve no Jikan (The Time of Eve) aired on NicoDouga.  Was a pretty good ending, full of laughs and tear-jerkers.  I cried.  I'm not ashamed to admit it.

    I love Chartfag's charts. He also had the best title for a website ever: "Chartfag's Lair of Faggotry"

    I saw that, and it made me a tad more uncomfortable than I liked while I was there.
