You're really acting absent-minded chu-day. This time we're listening to half the soundtrack, "burning ass" back to the Yggdrasil, committing to Chu-Chu, fighting on a stage set, collecting our thoughts on a bridge, not robbing an abandoned store, exploring an actual spaceship, using our ancestral eyes to open sacred doors, lamenting the mausoleum's whack-ass dungeon, deathblowing each other, bonding pilots with robots, flying saucers, suggesting clergymen should commit suicide, and controlling Gears with our brains. Peace to all of those who come here. Use this giant weapon to murder everything.
