I can't believe that my friends and I may be attending Japan Expo next year. That would be our first convention in another country. :D Updated 14 Jul · 0 comments

About Me

Uhm... hey ^-^,

My name's Daniela, though a lot of people call me Merilly or Meril. I'm from Germany and I am currently studying English and Biology to become a teacher in the future.
I've been a Kingdom Hearts fan for a very long time now but it can hardly be described as being a fan from the very first second. When I first received the game from my parents together with my PS2 (my parents just saw the Disney components and thought it was a good game to give to young, Disney-obsessed me) I was rather young, maybe around 9. I got stuck in Alice in Wonderland and somehow couldn't find my way through it, so I put the game away for awhile. It was about a year or so later that I picked it up again, remembering that I never managed to beat it, and my love for it began there. During that time I matured a lot and since Alice in Wonderland was a pretty early world, I did not get through the story part and had no incentive to play through it before. Good thing I picked it up again, I guess because since then I've played almost every Kingdom Hearts game except for Chi. I am immensely happy about the HD collections since I was finally able to play Re: Chain of Memories and the Final Mix versions of the original games since they were never released in Europe.

Anyway, since then it has been my favorite Franchise and I replay it again and again. I also read the Manga and own the Ultimania books though I cannot read them as of now. Since I am a figure collector, I own quite a bunch of Kingdom Hearts figures.

In my free time I like to draw and I'm also doing archery, cosplay and other things, like playing video games. I'm a big manga and anime fan.
Due to an annoying health condition, I am not able to use computers or tablets, so I am particularly happy now that I can play Unchained X on my phone.
Please feel free to contact me. I'd love to talk to someone about Kingdom Hearts and other things of course. I'd like to exchange theories ad stuff since I am not particularly active in forum threads and tend to comment on polls and news articles more than anything else ^^'

I still can't really warm up to KH3's theme song Oath/Chikai. The rhythm, the lyrics and the general atmosphere really bother me. Luckily, it's only one song, but I dislike all the trailers throwing it in at some point now.

    Yeah I agree that it is being a little over used. This is also different from how the music that Utada usually sings as well, the whole album is actually different from how she normally sings like how the songs are more slow and has some what of a more darker tone. Kingdom Hearts 3 being the end of the Saga and also going to have the darkest story of the games it could work

    It could work, but despite everything dark, it will hopefully still be KH and that always had this underlying hope. I still think there might be a better suited version for the opening,because this kinda kills the suspense for me a little. It's not even dreadfully dark but rather melancholic and thus a little boring for me. Sounds more like a love song about losing someone dear than the intro to the final clash in the Xehanort saga. But it's okay if people like this tone.

    I'm not trying to ruin it for everyone who enjoys this type of music. But it's interesting that you say that not only this song is different compared to what she usually sings but the entire album. I'm not exactly a fan, despite thinking she's a good singer overall, so that's good to know. Makes me think it may not have been requested to be this gloomy.

Somehow this trailer killed my hopes for both Treasure Planet and Atlantis. Considering I like both more than Pirates of the Caribbean, I'm a bit disappointed they chose that movie. (Everything was also heavily overlighted,wasn't it?)

    Yeah I also feel lied to because I'm fairly certain Nomura said the worlds in KH3 would be new Disney Worlds

    He didn't say there would only be new Disney worlds, he only said they would not reuse existing maps. They didn't lie and I feel the word is rather strong. I just dislike POTC in KH and feel there would have been better choices...

Now that I'm done with God of War, I want to play something else to shorten the wait. I am interested in Detroit: Becomr Human but the game is still too expensive. There's more to choose from than I thought...

Not sure how to feel about that allegedly datamined KH3 Kairi outfit from Union Cross.

    I hate that too. Datamining. Leaking. I wonder if she's getting a haircut too. If that happens at least we'll see her in the new outfit and possibly a new haircut.

    I don't mind it for minor stuff. Of course the software shouldn't be tempered with but seeing some unused areas in the franchise was fun for example. But this whole leaking information thing when it does not really give us an advantage... In the end, it might even have repercussions. Maybe not for us but for the people working for the company for example. And it's not like it can be avoided so easily.

    I don't want to judge anyone or point fingers, claiming that this is atrocious behavior since some people enjoy it, but personally, it was a bit of a bummer, similar to how Monsters, Inc. got leaked because the trailer did not have the same impact and some people don't tag their stuff. (Though in this case, the leaks were made public due to SE's own fault since they put it on a public server...)

One of the things I don't like is how the walls glow to indicate you can run up on them... It somehow disturbs the beautiful environment and I would wish for something more subtle. Or maybe an option to turn that off and just let people try themselves what they can use. The sparkles are okay but I've seen almost an entire part of the screen have this wave-like glow effect and it's not pretty.

    I thought I was the only one who hated that, I'd be fine if it was a one and done type thing but it's constantly pulsating

    THANK YOU! Completely agree. I don't mind it in Olympus, but when Andy's ENTIRE room looks like it's on sonar, we have a problem.

    I saw that too in Andy's room and that's where it got really bothersome. I'd rather walk head first into walls with nothing happening to try it myself than have everything light up unnaturally. I hope the people who were at the premiere also took notice of that so SE knows it's not exactly the best solution. I'd even ne fine with what you suggested with the one time glow and then that's it. It's not like people won't try anyway.

I think I'll just go back to playing GoW, go to bed, get my massage tomorrow and return to a plethora of trustworthy impressions. That's the first time I had to block a tag...

So May 18th the embargo will be lifted for the people getting to play KH3 early. That's going to be fun to read. :D

    I don't watch that many of them to be honest and not every video. ^^' But I'd find it a little unfair of they are the only ones allowed to. Did they say anything about that? For example, I really liked the analysis of the minigame trailer by NihonScribe, so I hope ths news site people also get the same privilege. Thanks for the information though, you two. That's good to know.

    Actually I'm not sure, he could have just worded it weirdly but I doubt that it'll be one rule for the youtubers and another for everyone else.

    Yeah would be weird. Though I guess we'll just have to wait and see, especially since there are only a few days left. I don't want to pester anyone attending for information or have them accidentally break their NDAs. That's not in my interest just for some little tidbit of information. They probably don't know that much either and I'm just glad actual fans get to go and not solely some random press representatives.

I hate this warm weather... During the showing of Infinity War, I nearly fainted because it was so hot in the cinema due to the AC failing.

My Proplica Keyblade arrived and I feel tiny next to it. :D
