I think out of all the news we’ve had recently, the one we’ve been hoping for most has finally been confirmed:
Mutton Man is in Xillia 2.
The adventure starts with Kor, a young man living in a small village by the sea. While watching the house in his grandfather’s absence, Kor meets a young woman named Kohaku who has come searching for his grandfather. However, a mysterious witch soon appears and casts a spell on Kohaku’s Spiria, the embodiment of her heart and soul. Kor attempts to lift the spell, but while doing so he accidentally shatters her Spiria Core, the source of her emotions. Armed only with the Soma, an unusual weapon given to him by his grandfather, Kor must now set out on a journey to find a way to make Kohaku’s Spiria whole once more.
I came up with an excuse for Shing’s name change to Kor, but I’m probably just overthinking. I’ll copy/paste from elsewhere:
As for Shing, well the best excuse I could come up with is that they were going off the reasoning for Shing’s name on the official blog where they claim that it comes from 「心」を「具えている」 (心 and 具 together would be pronounced “shingu”), and they could be aiming for it sounding like the Latin word “cor” (heart, since that’s what 心 means).
…But I guess the only way to know for sure is if someone on the localization team says something.
Trying to get out of the Rockgagong… BLECH.

I was going through my old files and saw a video of me doing the Hare Hare Yukai dance in 2007. It was old, and it was bad.
Then, I was reminded of this video that happened two years later.
Yeah. Nosssstalgia, and the only con I ever went to.
Just thought I’d share with the class.
I’m sorry, Ice Dragon Flurry is better than what…!?
