    Final Fantasy XIV: Dad Of Light (J-Drama Live Action TV Series) [Netflix April 20th]

    Final Fantasy XIV: D̶a̶d̶d̶y̶ Father Of Light



    Cringe maybe but oh well.

    or Novacrystallis: http://www.novacrystallis.com/2017/0...ed-true-story/

    tl;dr Son and Father bond over FFXIV

    I'll watch it if it has shit like
    "Son get me into A12s!"
    "sorry dad your DPS is too low"

    But if it's shit like
    "son lets quest/craft together" then I might not be able to bear it lolololol

    Alternatively, I'll take it if the son is some NEET (though he doesn't qualify in the looks department) and the father attempts to bond/know him more via the game.

    ALSO!!!! lol PS4

    Double ALSO: they better have 2 TVs or some shit, if they show 2 controllers with 1 console I'll rage

    Coming to Netflix April 20th https://www.engadget.com/2017/03/31/...light-netflix/ (thanks Buffy!)

    His son falls into fflogs and parse obsession and has to have a father heart to heart talk with his son about using third party applications to break the rules to measure his tiny dick. Then he asks his son where he learned how to use these, and he looks up to him and says from you, and is a flash back to his dad using kparse in FFXI. Yelling at his SAM bro for only doing a 400 Gekko while he looks on peaking between the paper sliding wall.

    We then find out that, that is the very moment his wife left him. Don't give in to parses people.

    They can't use parsers because they're playing on PS4. Maybe the son is bad and the father has to come out of retirement and teach him how to git gud and overcome stigmas.

    Explains where they're diverting XIV's revenue though.

    Assuming it only uses the game as a sandbox and doesn't follow much of the story/plot/mechanics, I bet the last boss is his mum!

    This is an underrated post

    Why is OP in denial of the official english title? I demand mods change it to Daddy of Light!


    I might check out one episode, but this seems like a huge waste. I wish SE would comission an anime adaptation that tells a more.....compelling story. It'd probably be way better than Brotherhood, and other cheaper MMOs do it like Blade & Soul, Maplestory, and PSO2.

    You don't know how compelling this story may be yet.
    J-dramas tend to do emotional bonds really well. They have a lot of practice and precedent after all, so this one should easily be touching at least.

    Besides, every animated FF adaptation has been mediocre at best and downright awful at worst. I'd hate to see XIV's story reduced to FF:Ultimate levels of badness.

    Eh thats true. I'm very ignorant of J-dramas. However, idk, I think id prefer something that tells interesting lore stories in FFXIV, or at the very least have very cool art.

    Ultimately I'm prejudiced because when I initially heard about this, I got my hopes up of a story revolving around something in the setting of Eorzea.
