|These small screens really scream, "I'm in the wrong resolution!"|
|I was just wondering what happened to her|
|Sure, let me just check out your stats|
|And suddenly I'm kicking someone out of my party|
|These were the sweetest words I've read all game|
|The Super magic I'd just learned came in really handy for the Hydra guarding the sword|
|I knew this was a plot door when I first passed it|
|An example of the war battles--I just used the tiger ability, and a couple units engage in combat|

|And for us all|

|Having to gain favor with each character would be a long and tedious prospect|
|Watching castles burn seems to be a past-time of Kojiro|

Final Rating: 27 [45%]
Overall, I'm glad to be done with this. It probably would have taken 5 - 10 less hours had I been running the entire time. It's my own fault, and I don't blame the game for it, but maybe it wouldn't have felt like such a drag to make it to the end. Unless you're really into Japanese history around this time period, I wouldn't recommend the game. The named characters, places, and battles are really only interesting with that perspective.
Moving on, we have Super Ninja Boy coming up. Before that post though I have to cut Technoclash, which is another eyebrow raising title someone proclaimed was an RPG. I knew the first few games of 1993 were going to try my patience, but I didn't think it'd take me this long to get through one. Probably the next game I'm looking forward to is Might and Magic 3, which isn't too far away. Let's see if we can get through the next couple within the month. My hope of finishing 1993 this year is probably shot.
To save you some trouble, here are the ending screens. Aside from Rei and the hero, I'm not sure who any of these people are.
