Just your average Seong here. Hopelessly nerdy geek, vidya player, part-time writer, aiming to become some sort of reviewer personality in the (near?) future. Passionate about video games, good and bad alike.
I also stream -- not to any serious degree, but on occasion, if my camera-shyness doesn't kill me first.
Hope to meet some randos with the same obscure interests as I have! Or something like that... is that how these work? Send help.
And now, nitpick.
. . . So why is her tagline now "Daughter of the Bladed Rod"?
GDI, was "Heart and Soul Girl" too unique? Did you really need to bland it up for what otherwise could've been her best portrayal in these games? Will I ask a fourth question? And am I just overreacting because of my name?
Yes I am, but that's beside the point - or at least, I wanna say it is, but it's not.

The dynamic I used to particularly like about Mi-na really came down to her not being a downright 'joke' character, like Danpierre used to be in IV/V, but instead is a sort of youthful contrast against all of these battle-hardened dudes and either god-born or mystical gals. She COULD be a joke, but more out of subverting expectations. Honestly, the only thing they're missing is giving her stage music the ol' 'ecstatic theme she had from Blade. I'm glad to see my girl be unique.

And her entire character portrayal is this endearingly jovial contrast to the rest of the cast. Even her taunt is pretty youthful compared to the other games.
Frick, I even liked the small detail where her, um... 'crotch attack' (forgot name) does a little "ding" on contact against male opponents.
Basically what I'm saying is... I'm the only one here who's geeking out because they essentially made my favorite character back into my favorite iteration, from Soul Blade/Calibur 1.

Oh yeah and um
SCVI is pretty good too.
I friggin ADORE what they did with Mi-na with regards to the 'primary' story. Just at a glance, the fact that the entire thing is played out as a first-person narration/journaled entirely from her perspective is absolutely perfect. She acts childish, while in retrospect, is kicking herself at basically every opportunity.
Her own plot has nothing to do with SE, and is just pure personal growth.
Ending? Literally her SC1 ED art, colorized.
@SeongGino big brain. it's not a typo she's just literally learned to kill with words
Phone stuff deux
But with a telescopic gamepad, it makes a surprisingly nice handheld. Just a bit of custom software, and the thing lasts all day (8-10hrs+ SoT), runs super fast without swap, and it's perfect for online PSO grinding and playing the ten or so mobile games that are actually good.
It's huge af when extended like this, but despite the blank space, it's still about as ergonomic as the original Vita; just with a bigger, brighter screen.
Haven't really mentioned this at all despite having it for a few weeks now, but I recently switched back to Android with the OnePlus 7 Pro; complete with #notsponsored dB back skin and a matteSkin for the screen.
While it's big - okay, TOO big for normal use, I've grown to liking the edge-to-edge-ness. But could've done without curved edges, which cause ghost touches galore.
Getting skins were a necessity, the glass felt super vulnerable and was unbearably slippery.

Bisch, Arche's adorable.
