Lets Sort Of Experience Tales Of Vesperia Blind
In a nutshell.Let's Sort Of Experience Tales of Vesperia Blind
by pengiesama is a review, summary and Affectionate Parody
of Tales of Vesperia
all at once. It's described as "a bunch of cock jokes supplemented by spazzy drawings", which is rather accurate.
The series is made up of five parts
that cover the first two thirds of the game. pengiesama's coverage of the ending is spread loosely about her blog posts after the fifth part (mostly because of her sheer inability to comprehend the rapid transition from
" to "global warming plot
") but the series is eventually concluded in an ending
that isn't listed as being one of the main parts of the Let's Play.
Tropes contained or referenced in Let's Sort Of Experience Tales of Vesperia Blind:
- All Men Are Perverts: Yuri to the max. Also, Raven. "Have boobs, will approve."
- A Man Is Not a Virgin: Raven averts this, apparently.
- Affectionate Parody
- Alternate Character Interpretation: Invoked for the purposes of the series. Yuri is a hooker, Flynn is a Stalker with a Crush, Estelle is just dumber than in the original, Raven is a stoner, Karol speaks in ALL CAPS, Judith talks veeeerrrrrrryyyyy sllllowwwwlllly, Alexei is a complete and utter troll (even more than in the original) and Rita is described as a "fifteen-year-old sexually frustrated lesbian dominatrix"... which isn't all that far from her portrayal in canon, really.
- Character Exaggeration
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: Yuri.
- Crossover: Calamari Damacy.
- Deus ex Machina: Pengiesama accuses Dein Nomos of being this.
- Distracted by the Sexy: Pengiesama has some Yuri-ogling induced blackouts.
- The Ditz: Estelle, to ridiculous extremes.
- Drowning My Sorrows: Duke.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: Yuri and Duke.
- Dude, She's Like, in a Coma!: Rita has a "considering look on her face" when she watches Estelle sleep.
- Even the Guys Want Him: Yuri, of course.

- Foe Yay: "I AM GOING TO CUT OUT YOUR HEART AND MAKE OUT WITH IT"
- For the Evulz: More or less all the villains thus far, due to Character Exaggeration.
- Gag Boobs: Judith's, naturally.
- Griefer: The Bunting Hlades.
- Guy-on-Guy Is Hot: Pengiesama certainly seems to think so, which is why Yuri and Flynn are so... Yeah.

- Interspecies Romance: Don/Belius and Duke/Elucifer
- Large Ham: Alexei, as Pengie frequently points out.
- Like Brother and Sister: Pengiesama's opinion on Yuri/Estelle.
- Love Freak: Estelle. "Maybe we could just hug it out??"
- Magnificent Bastard: Discussed in-universe and deconstructed, as Pengie points out how Alexei could not possibly be one because the story is a "hot mess" that has little, if anything, to do with his end goal.
- Memetic Badass: Discussed. "Is [Don Whitehorse] the memetic badass of the Vesperia fandom? He should be." Later invoked when pengiesama begins talking about how it should be impossible for him to die.
- Mr. Fanservice: Pengie considers Yuri to be this... and very often deliberately makes him into one.
- Ms. Fanservice: Judith.
- Murder the Hypotenuse: Sodia attempts it.
- c: "Because Russian man has a Russian name he is very clearly our antagonist."

- Running Gag:
- "Shut the fuck up, Karol."
- Schoolgirl Lesbians: Rita and Estelle.
- Shout-Out: Lots.
- Sissy Villain: Cumore. "We know he is bad because he is campy, because game programmers, much like the members of the Bunting Hlades, have severe masculinity issues."
- Stalker with a Crush: Flynn
- The Stoner: Raven
- What an Idiot: Estelle. Constantly lampshaded.
- Whip It Good: Frequently parodied.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: Yuri. DAT ASS indeed.
