Following up Falcom’s popular story-heavy RPG trilogy Sora no Kiseki is Legend of Heroes VII, which comprises Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki. After the events in Liberl, the focus is shifted in Zero and Ao to Crossbell, located between the Erebonian Empire and the Calvard Republic. Its central city, Crossbell City, is a wealthy, technologically-advance place where crime runs rampant and the idea of justice is warped. Citizens have a rather low opinion of the city’s police force, and prefer to rely on the Bracer Guild for their problems. The game stars Lloyd Bannings, a graduate of the city’s police academy, as he joins the Crossbell State Police Department into a sector established to accept requests and problems from citizens similar to the Bracer Guild (I have no idea how to translate or romanize 特務支援課, its one of those phrases that I can understand and not know how to read, thanks to Chinese understanding). Together with Lloyd are the honour student-like ojou-sama Elie MacDowell, kuudere technology wiz Tio Plato sent by the Epstein company, and the flirtatious and chill (and the ultimate bro) Randy Orlando.

Zero no Kiseki HK LE comes with Nendoroids…
Traditional Chinese LE from Hong Kong comes with Nendoroids (or Chinese replicas of them) that came with Ao no Kiseki LE. This makes be somewhat rage, but I have no relatives in Hong Kong and I already got the mainland version. Nendoroids WANT. At least I get a sexy notebook…Anyways, the HK version is available through Play-Asia which actually ships overseas. Their price is actually not bad, as the HK LE cost 400 HKD which converts to around $50 CAD anyways. It includes artbook, CD set, playing cards, 2 Nendoroids and a tote bag.
Also, for bad news, the person who’s supposed to bring me my Zero no Kiseki changed her flight to December. WUT. I ordered from Amazon because her flight was originally in September, but FUUUUUUUUUUUU. Maybe I should’ve gone to Play-Asia and their HK version after all. Rageragerageragerage
On a happier note, I got my Sora no Kiseki Set that includes all 3 games. Time to replay while I wait for December, I guess. It’s a shame, because I get to go home early this semester which is like dream come true for my hobby.
Ohohoho~ Guess what I just preordered today?
Zero no Kiseki Chinese PC Limited Edition!!!
For only 189 yuan! That’s less than $30 CAD. AND IT’S THE LIMITED EDITION! Look at the stuff you get! Dat artbook! Dat soundtrack CD! Dat free notebook! All dat other useless stuff that I will likely never take out of the box just like my Bracer badge! Yeah…That’s A LOT of stuff compared to North American Limited Editions. No wonder LE’s in China are like more than twice the price of the normal edition, and they are still cheap for foreigners! I honestly just want the 272 page artbook and the CD (mostly the artbook), but I guess having all that other loot doesn’t hurt.
I made my relatives in China pre-order this for me because Amazon.cn doesn’t ship overseas and even if they did I don’t want to see what the shipping cost will look like. My friend’s mom is coming to Canada in like September so I guess I’ll be seeing Zero no Kiseki in two months when she brings it over (cheap person’s overseas shipping alternative). WHY SEPTEMBER? WHY THE GAMES I WANT COME OUT IN SEPTEMBER?? Geeze, Disgaea 4, Persona 2 and Zero no Kiseki all in the same month where I have to start worrying about school. I guess I have free time to play my PC visual novels for the rest of the summer.
Speaking of VNs, my worst nightmare came true: ITH isn’t hooking Rewrite properly so I can’t rely on Translation Aggregator. Time to tackle this thing in raw Japanese!
EDIT: Also, hooray for 20k views on my blog!
