Dengeki PlayStation reveals the episode's name to be "Requiem of the Goddess."
That's all we know at the moment, but an appearance in Dengeki or Famitsu usually means that Square Enix will make official announcement of the DLC (along with screenshots hopefully) later in the week.
Story theme of Lightning ReturnsEven more Lightning Returns information has been published online, this time from a Dengeki PlayStation staff interview.Story theme of Lightning Returns in Personal More Like This
Toriyama and Kitase have shared a few more story hints which give a little more insight into the direction of this “World Driven” game.
Several hundred years have passed since Lightning fell into her crystal sleep, however, Chaos hasn’t spread everywhere yet. The core theme of the story is “the salvation of souls” and Lightning has somehow become their “liberator” as she is tasked with guiding souls to a new world.
The concept of religion has already been revealed in the city of Luxerion by the existence of their mad religious cult. Each of the other continents will have their own concepts as well, although full details have yet to be revealed.

Kitase: (The last part about Lightning’s DLC Episode) Explaining “XXX Years Later” would be pointless. It might seem that the line “To Be Continued…” means that Lightning’s chapter will continue in more download content, but we are doing it in a different interpretation.

Just like Vanille, she has her own new render – although she’s pretty much unchanged from her FFXIII outing – and a couple new screenshots showcasing her upcoming fight alongside Lightning as one of the game’s quest party members. The magazine also touches on a few bits of new information for the character, specifically that she awoke from her crystal slumber as part of Cocoon’s support pillar a few years ago. Initially she was with Luxerion’s Salvation Council, but now she leads a band of thieves in the dry ruin-filled Dead Dunes.
Within the thieves’ stronghold, Lightning will meet up with Fang once again. She has something to ask of Lightning, having been separated from her family – Vanille – whom she believes is being used as a tool for the gods.

Street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson called it the “decisive moment”— the captured instant when all the photograph’s elements come together to tell a story in a way a text narrative of thousands of words could never begin to.

It is uniquely completely immersive in life— step out into the streets— in which the moment of artistic epiphany can never be guessed at until it suddenly happens. When it is properly mastered, it is as pure as the dawn of each new day, as true as the living organism of a teeming street scene catching a breath as one.

Prop-building 101, part IISo you've decided to build your first giant sword/hammer/axe/super-dimensional-electric-trident, and gathered all the materials for your mighty Cosplay weapon of doom. Now is time to do some planning!Prop-building 101, part II in Personal More Like This
Like with costumes, you really cannot have too many reference pictures of the props you make. We tend to pin up every good color picture we can find up on corkboard in our living room. Scour the internet and art books for pictures, and if there is a video game that features your character try to get your grubby pawns on it to look at the weapon in 3D. Even better, if there is a high-quality action figure available for the character you are cosplaying, they usually come with weapons that are perfect reference material in 3-D! Besides, who does not want to own MORE actions figures?
Use any pictures or models of your character with the prop you are building as a measurement for how big your sword needs to be. If you are really tall, this means you will need to build much longer

Wonderflex is a type of thermoplastic that is shaped with heat. Inside the plastic is woven fabric that holds the sheets of Wonderflex together when it is heated and malleable.

I stated that "I'm not sure if a human can become a slender; as I'm pretty sure slenders are born, not made from a transition. " BUT I had forgotten all about Sexual Offenderman (Sorry Smexy) and how he was once a human who was turned into a slender by Splendorman. And I was talking with someone on this topic as well. So it seems that the ways that slenders reproduce is either from breeding or slenders turning humans into slenders. However it seems that there are less female slenders than male slenders, which would reduce the likelihood of reproducing that way, and not all of them want to have kids. And there are probably only a few slenders who know the secret to making a human a slender, because if they al

I was an intern at Nickelodeon Studios for a year in 2005 for my degree in animation. It wasn't paid of course, most internships aren't, but it did have some perks beyond education. To adults it might not seem like a big one, but most kids at the time would go crazy over it.
Now, since I worked directly with the editors and animators, I got to view the new episodes days before they aired. I'll get right to it without giving too many unnecessary details. They had very recently made the SpongeBob movie and the entire staff was somewhat sapped of creativity so it took them longer to start up the season. But the delay lasted longer for more upsetting reasons. There was a problem with the series 4 premiere that set everyone and everything back for several months.
