    Favorite Miko for me is Nami Yamigumo from Silent Mobius. No major reason, aside from my liking that show and manga, and getting a chuckle from the Wizardry reference in the chapter of the manga with her backstory.

      I always find it interesting how obsessed old school Otaku were with western RPGs. It has not completely gone away but with the rise of JRPGs the fandom for Western RPGs has greatly diminished. It was a different time with the stories of Robert Woodhead partially being able to start AnimEigo due to the fact that people working in the anime industry wanted to work with him because he was so instrumental in the creation of the Wizardry industry.

      Hayate Chapter 544 JUST made a reference to the Great Stygian Abyss from the Ultima series so it is still alive it is just not what it used to be.
