Watched Ep 1 right now. Couldn't believe it's only 11 minutes long. I thought it would be a regular episode. Funny, how they made an anime for this series compare to other franchises in the past. This is my first time seeing these characters. Not much backstory was explained, but I wasn't lost. I'm looking forward to this series.
We are back to the fight with the lamia Daemon. Noct is able to finish off the Daemon with help of his group. They should have focused on cutting the arms in the first place instead of attacking the tail.
I reuse this thread and just add the entry in the table
Square Enix began streaming the full "Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn Prologue" short anime on Saturday after premiering the short at the Katsucon convention. The end of the anime previews the previously announced "Episode Ardyn" DLC for the Final Fantasy XV game, and announces the DLC will launch on March 26. Crunchyroll also announced on Saturday that it is streaming the anime short worldwide outside of Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.
Square Enix also announced on Saturday that it will release a novel titled Final Fantasy XV: The Dawn of the Future on April 25. The novel will tell stories about Ardyn, Aranea, Lunafreya, and Noctis. A "Celebration Box" set in Japan for the novel will feature the novel, a Blu-ray Disc release of the Episode Ardyn Prologue short, an art booklet, an original post card set, and an original coaster. Square Enix stated that the novel is also getting an overseas version.
Square Enix had cancelled the development on the planned "Episode Aranea," "Episode Lunafreya," and "Episode Noctis" DLC. In the above Q&A video, Episode Ardyn DLC producer Yuji Shinoda stated, "we hope to also bring you guys the other stories in one form or another."
Taka: I remember watching Devils' Line. I can't remember any issues I had. I have to look at my comments.

Old Man Dream: One of those familiar vampire stories in a modern setting where the male lead hates himself because of his vampiric nature and is in love with a human woman. The execution of the whole story is pretty clumsy and from what I gather, the anime is...

Old Man Dream: ...rushing through 40 chapters of manga material to fit into 12 anime episodes. Definitely shows with how quickly it's creaming through events, with the main couple being bland between angsty male vampire and the human female devoted to him.

Old Man Dream: Besides that plot, said male lead's involved with a secret government agency tasked with controlling vampires that give into their bloodlust.

Old Man Dream: And adding more insult to injury, the new Injustice animated movie is a big mess.

Taka: I read through my comments. Bloodlust and rapes along with innuendos. The romance I never mentioned of - with the details you mentioned - I remembered now it was pretty bad.

Old Man Dream: I'm thankfully pretty far in the series. Just have 3 more episodes, which I should get taken care of by tomorrow evening. Kind of regret thinking this would be a good title to dabble into for Halloween.

Taka: Didn't catch the Injustice movie. Waiting for it to be digitally available. That's a shame.

Old Man Dream: The movie got leaked online a week early before its release date. The negative reception to it, especially with how regarded the comic book and video game versions of Injustice are, got me curious to see how bad it was. I won't spoil things unlike most...

Old Man Dream: ...folks are unfortunately doing. But I'll just say that it both tries cramming too much into an 80-minute film and alters things rather heavily compared to the game and comics.
Oct 15, 2021 9:19:07 GMT
Taka: That is a shame considering they split Long Halloween into two parts. I guess with Injustice, you are appealing to 3 groups: the video game folks, the comic book folks, and then the new fans.

Old Man Dream: It sounds like you're assuming the games and comics run separate stories. The video game series serves as the main story of the franchise, while the comics serve as prequel or interquel to expand on and fill in the details on events that weren't...

Old Man Dream: ...elaborated on within the video games.

Taka: Thanks for the correction. For some reason I thought the video game was loosely based on the comic books and treated the two as separate stories. With fighting games, I assumed they had more flexibility due to different endings.
