I remember really like Rena voiced by Iizuka Mayumi, that kind of became my definitive voice for the character.


I still like Hisakawa Aya best (because I swear she had a voice in almost everything I watched or played back in the late '90s), and it bugs me that they did not get her to reprise the original role.


The opening theme to Arc the Lad is also something that I can't get out of my head. It was so... orchestral.


It's very special, IMO, since the original ATL was one of the first PS1 JRPGs (after Beyond the Beyond). To me, the song always said, without words, "This is the PS1. This is where you will now go to get your JRPG needs met." And so it was. Still an epic song.

My favorite Arc the Lad, and you will probably hate me for this, was the fourth one for PS2. Well half of it at least, I REALLY enjoyed playing through Darc's story. Kharg's story wasn't bad, undertones of racism but generally typical JRPG fare. In Darc's story though, everything and everyone that was against him, his origins as a slave, getting his wings ripped off, after you see a character go through so much hardship the path of vengeance and conquest just feels so good.

You didn't say Arc 3, so I forgive you.



I remember Twilight of the Spirits (Arc 4) mostly as the game Nintendo ripped off to make Path of Radiance.

Does it allow you to be morally grey? Because that is usually what makes most stories / games for me. I loved Tactics Ogre because of that.

I'm looking forward to Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta? I just read the first chapter of the manga version and it made me laugh.

Ehhh, recent enough, I'll add it, though I probably won't add idea factory anime. Possibly.


Also added highly recommended based off of MAL scores, not that I need to, since I know what everyone already likes, and added gintama's with specified arcs. If I miss any you guys let me know!

Not so much. I love Fire Emblem, but the stories are usually so black-and-white that it's hilarious.

And Tactics Ogre is in a class by itself in the moral ambiguity department. Fantastic game.
