Oof, I guess I was about...13 when the game originally came out, though 14 when it came out in the U.S.
I've been having some weird health issues, but I was able to celebrate Xenosaga's anniversary by watching...the anime. And then a little bit of the DVD that came with pre-orders for Episode II. But I guess I slightly appreciate the anime more now? At least a little bit. Not enough to really recommend it to anyone.
