Man, I never thought the box would be this huge, even knowing there was a figure inside.
I'm an hour in and I will say that I like it (particularly more than Tales of Graces F). I'm not going to act like it's something to write home about (well, at least not yet. I rather not be so swallowed up by the hype).
I guess I should just admit that I do have the equivalent of a complicated relationship with the Tales series. There are times that I can love it (Tales of Phantasia, despite how old it is, Tales of Symphonia, while not my favorite, I can give some props to that game) and there are times I end up having a hard time loving the series (can be uninspired sometimes, its fanbase, and Tales of Legendia).
(No, I don't plan to put Jude in the Cless costume. Besides, I already wore one.)
