>>17783282>Donna toki de mo Anata ha hitori ja nai yoWell at least when Geah is iver I can continue on to the rest of the Wild Arms
>>17783296The words "You'll never be alone no matter where you go" are fast become very relevant.
>>17783304Geah is pretty much Wild Arms 6 but in name.XV particularly has been so Wild Arms 2 from what I've played.
Wild Arms sucks.
>>17783282bikki birthday general
I always thought that the light sticks in j-pop concerts kinda look autistic but after watching all of the Symphogear Lives they're pretty endearing and helps allow the director to orchestrate the entire stadium. It looked pretty autistic at first, but it's actually a stroke of genius.
I know we are all happy for Bikki handholding Tsubasa, but this really prompted me thinking, has Bikki really learnt anything through out 5 seasons or being able to understand any of those she tried to reach out? She never really understands the conflict of those she fought or those around her, it was just her insistence and the show's circumstances which somehow made her talk no jutsu worked everytime. I mean for this season you just have to look at Tsubasa situation, Hibiki evidently didnt understand Tsubasa's pain and conflict and still until now doesn't get it, and it was also the same with Miku since the show just made Topdad gave her an empty wordsNow I'm not saying it's bad to have an one track protagonist like Hibiki, i think we can all appreciate an all loving fighter. But i really wish the show has been a little bit more heavy on her and actually made her reflect on herself and those around her, because for 5 seasons she really has never had to.
>>17783707What do you think the point of the Miku and Hibiki drama in XV is?
>>17783711And what exactly has Hibiki learnt from it? Topdad basicalpy just told her to heiki hecchara on and she took it as gosprl, it's no different from before.
Why has Fujitaka been so cool this season? Looked really cool here.
>>17783893>filenameLies and slander!
>>17783896It's true and it's another reason why he's cool.
>>17783896Hey Fujitaka, if you admit to it we'll give you shots of Shirabe's bare back
Glorious Break too
>>17783908the fuck is this?guessing its new XDU stuff because of your text
>hibiki's birthday is on friday the 13th
>>17783930Sasuga Kirika's admired senpai
>>17783972How can a senpai be this short
Soon Shirabe will be taller than Chris. 1cm. 1cm and she's only growing.
So Berserk Bikki & Maria along with 6* Glorious Break. I still only have 1 Vitalization unfortunately. Well I've got some money to pay back after rolling 30 x 2 times on the swimsuit alchemists banner and age difference couple banner, so no chance to roll now, so the bonus points will be terrible this time around.
>>17783927playable berserk units in XDU alongside a short scenario. seems to be a simulation program run by elfnein that surely went utterly wrong
>>17783972Meh, should be doing something else but what the hey, Chris is adorable.Anyone remember the names of Chris' 3rd year friends? It came out in XDU, but I only remember glasses shorty is called "Otome Kaburagi", but not the others. I wonder if Otome also wears huge heelsC: Funyah!C: C'mon!C: Dammit!!C: Why are blackboards so damn tall!?C: Kuh!C: Hmn!SFX ぴょん=pyon all over indicate she is trying to jump to reach itC: Dammit, I look like some brat...!C: Even though papa and mama were so tall...Curious about this, I remember that Sonnet's sprite was actually way shorter than Masanori or Finè's, so while she might not have been Chris-short, she still didn't look tall C: Muuu...F1: Ok, okF1: You are something else, Chris-chan.C: Y-You...Narration: Everyone took care of the black board togetherOK: You were so cute going all "pyon pyon", Yukine-san!C: Don't mess with me!C: Treating me like a brat!There, adorable.>>17784015Dammit, Elfnein! You were supposed to have caught up with OP already, what the hell distracted you this time around?
Hmmm, might be a useful formation.
>Bloody(cross)CurseHow do you remain this chuuni even after losing control over your actions and going berzerk?
>>17784020actually it was enki this whole time. He also keeps telling Serena about fairies.
>>17784018>Anyone remember the names of Chris' 3rd year friends?Godai Yuki, Ayano Komichi, and Kaburagi Otome.
>>17784018One Piece: Stampede is still in cinemas.She is trying to connect bullet to the current canon and mention why Rayleigh and all the other oldies never mentioned him before.
>>17784014Why are the berserk ones advertised instead of the 6*Any videos of Glorious Break animations?
>>17784027Thanks!Otome is glasses, but which one is Yuki and Which is Komichi?
>>17783893When your only job is pushing buttons, you have to work very hard to look cool.
>>17784034because the 6 star cards are in every single banner, the 5 star ones arent
>>17784034The 6*s never have a image on the banners. You have to go to the update messages to see a photo of them. There was a low quality video pop up when I loaded the game. I imagine a better quality video will come up soon.>>17784035https://symphogear.fandom.com/wiki/Yuki_Godaihttps://symphogear.fandom.com/wiki/Komichi_Ayanohttps://symphogear.fandom.com/wiki/Otome_Kaburagi
>>17784049Otome is the cutest of the 3.I dare any of you to claim otherwise
Good catch. Which to start with first?
someone post a video of the berserk cards doing cute voice lines in the main menu.
>>17784057>So just explain to me what you where hoping to do when this happened.>Well we where getting ready to study for a math test when...>Stop..stop. nevermind.
>>17784041>>17784049oh I see, don't play the game just thought the big fancy ones would have the focus. Do they not have a rate up?>>17784063Are these the first playable berserk gears?
>>17784057i used to have no interest in her but ever since shem-ha appeared ive found miku really hot
if you clear the easy Multibattle with a 6 star you get a free ignite ticket.
>>17784069>Are these the first playable berserk gears?There is one berzerk Bikki, but she only goes berzerk for her special.Her second voice clip is also really cute because she's human for it, but I am pretty sure they were going for the contrast since even the image is Bikki doing a cute pose.
>>17784063Hibiki actually just grunts or says nothing.They are not having a repeat of EDGE going overly-cute with the "TACHIBANA HIBIKI NO REBERU GA AGATTA!!!"
>>17784018Based on the final CG of that event, ZenMom was leaning over some to hug Chris and even then the bottom of her chin was on the same level as Chris' eyes.>>17784069Berserk Maria sounds like an angry feline protecting her cubs.>>17784091Any card ascended to 6* or a 6* native card like Synchrogazer?
>>17784091Also, free gems for rarity-upping a card to 6 stars.
>>17784102>Any card ascended to 6* or a 6* native card like Synchrogazer?Any card that ascended to 6 stars from what I remember in the text, but my team for clearing the easy mission has Synchrogazer because she ends the fight hyper fast so I could be wrong
>>17784102>Berserk Maria sounds like an angry feline protecting her cubs.I can't believe they actually called Hikasa and Aoi in to just grunt
>>17784099what the fuck I love pokelabo now
>rerun Kanade>rerun Miku>rerun Ser-
>>17784110they should honestly just perma unlock all the big main events. then again, more stones for me.
>>17784110No one likes Serena except Maria and Marias-in-denial
>>17784105I just cleared with a single 6* SG and it finished the mission, so yes, any 6* from what I can see.
>>17784110Makes sense this time because Hibiki's birthday is literally tomorrow, so a Hibiki banner is a good idea.Plus, >>17784120
this is a bait banner, do not be deceived. Carol is right around the corner.
>>17784128I'm waiting on Serena XD2 like everyone else has gotten.
>>17784057What the hell happened there?
>>17784128What if Fudo comes out first?
>>17784128>CarolOnly character the general public care about as little as they do about Serena.
>>17784102It must suck knowing you could have been a foot or two taller had you just been fed well in Val Verde. I wonder if she'll end up getting those gigantic platform shoes that make it look like you're walking on stilts.
>>17784102https://twitter.com/yurapeace/status/1172068230363369472Speaking of Mariasounds.
>>17784147>This is Ernesta's fault
>>17784014>Well I've got some money to pay back after rolling
>>17784120I want to see Serena again because I know that she could cause her sister true suffering if she showed up alive but twisted. Like say the Nephilim had absorbed Serena's memories and voice. Can you imagine the look one Maria's face when that thing calls to her sister 'Maria... I'm so hungry it hurts' Or if Shem Ha raises her as a twisted devotee 'Maria, when our god returns no one would have to worry about losing their family to war, no one would have to know what we suffered through.'
Please post the new character cards
did they actually record new groaning noises? If so, based and redpilled.
>>17784130What could Serena's second X-drive do? The 1st one is the main healer of the game and #1 most useful 5* normal cost native card. Will this Serena transport everyone to Serenacon as her deathblow skill instead?
>>17784169>Will this Serena transport everyone to Serenacon as her deathblow skill instead?Scary thought
>>17784169Her first skill puts every status on the enemy party, each having it's own chance to roll. Then the attack does damage + bonus for each status on the target(s).
I like how fucking Agematsu tweeted about how strong murakhmo Tsubasa ist and that he's using her with Ogawa for maximum gay.he was using a paralyze spam team on launch too.
>>17784180So Testament, Aegis, Cosmic Wing, Gremlin Royale, etc. would all be helpful then.
https://twitter.com/kongrogrim/status/1171809702444855297if only we got this in XV
>>17784142It's ok, Chris now has a more compact kind of charm and lovely kouhais to reassure her of it.She doesn't need to be tall. And hey, it's not like she is the shortest geah, there is still Shirabe and that will never change
Where is my Glorious Break video
>>17784194I'm just theorycrafting. It's hard to come up with another support skill that's as good as "full party heal and cleanse on 40s CD"
>>17784202Big Bikkis.What did Miku do to make Bikki grow so well so she can teach Shirabe and Tsubasa to do to their bustier partners?
>>17784208>Tsubasa making Maria even biggerShe might start using a damn walker.Rice and fondling
>>17784205just make her an anti-support that kills your whole team to perform a 1500% aoe attack. If she's blinded you just lost the match.
>>17784009By being really cute, that's how!She's at perfect cheek-rubbing height! Even edge agrees!
>>17784215That'd still suck with all the immunities and autorevives running around.
>>17784219ok, every unit you kill with it revives on your side. Serena watched too much fantasy movies and wants to be a necromancer now.
>>17784010It's better to give up now, ShirabeDon't feed false hope
>>17784225A more reasonable thing is having Serena disable everyone's passive skills. We were first introduced to such a concept with Crystal Miku being able to disable anti-healing passives. Then Shirabebot in the super awakening missions also has that skill. Serena will go beyond and just blow all those passives away and have everyone fight without tricks and like a man in CQC.
>>17784233>cuts off without the fist actually exploding, going through, or knocking away the target>just like in the animenice
>>17784234sounds very reasonable and perfectly balanced too me.
>>17784233Testament got the short end of the stick in terms of final attack cards in XD. It's still a 5* (the most expensive, but still) and the attack itself is still super simple while the others have had multiple gears showing up and big 3D models.
>>17784241they really cut testaments animation short, the other finale attack cards decently recreate what the anime showed, but testaments is really short and has only like half of the actual attack shown.
>>17784241Hibiki's punching animation is super cute
>>17784149Hopefully Mangetsu gets a better end than the Autoscorers.
how this even workssolo ticket
>>17784251Should have bought a lotto ticket instead, bub. You just wasted your luck.
>>17784251I've seen several people get 6*s with single tickets. Though they are mostly players without a ton of good cards. I got a lot of cards, so 6*s very rarely drop for me (only have 1 Vitalization).Of course if you are like that whale that already has 3 Glorious Breaks (he's still aiming for more at this moment), then none of that applies.
>>17784253Ikri have like 4 copies of Syncrogazer and now 3 copies of Vitalizationi even can't use them with those resources they need for upgrates
>>17784256they arent very Meta anyway.>>17784255based autists keeping the game alive
>>17784256It's more economical to upgrade them during bonus EXP boosts. Maybe save up the daily 5* sheets as well so you can dump them and hope for big boosts.
was it ever stated what hibikis favourite food is
>>17784266Anything made by Miku.
>>17784272>>17784267So is this just a gungnir thing?
>>17784274It's an Ignite Berserk.
>>17784278Right, I remember GX teased that and we never saw it, but I was wondering if we're gonna get like Ame no Habakiri or Ichival too.
>>17784274I think they got picked because they are the only geahs to ever berzerk for a sufficient length of time to have at least a few groans.
>>17784265I usually hate girls with fully exposed foreheads but holy SHIT Hibiki looks cool every time it happens.
>>17784286When did Maria go zerker?
>>17784289jobbed, even while zerking
>>17784294Oh right, I totally forgot about that. Jesus Christ, Maria, no wonder Sword's not healed yet.
i missed everythingwhat's mission of new ep?
>>17784299something about the beartrap, kirika or shirabe
>>17784299Teach the flattest geah who's boss.
I'm not sure what threshold is a good cutoff for fighting the big snakeboi. With Serena you will basically last to the arbitrary cutoff 3 hours later but I don't have that kind of time.
>>17784157>Like say the Nephilim had absorbed Serena's memories and voice. Can you imagine the look one Maria's face when that thing calls to her sister 'Maria... I'm so hungry it hurts' Or if Shem Ha raises her as a twisted devotee 'Maria, when our god returns no one would have to worry about losing their family to war, no one would have to know what we suffered through.'Imagine the SERENAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
>>17784309It gives me, how do say. A boner.
>>17784306>big snakeboiYou talking about today''s advent boss? I just leave it on full auto-pilot and get 160K for current 53rd place. I guess a bit less than 300th place is best for 500 extra points, but I don't pay attention to what everyone is scoring. Just get 50K for the 1st time and see what that gets you.
Carol is sooner than you think, better save your gems.
carol will come out after the last episode where she's given her own separate homunculus body
>>17784322Your rank doesn't matter until the reset, and since it's just started you're just ranked that among the plebs who lose out early.
>>17784326But I don't care about Carol
>>17784328>Bikki will finally befriend the girl that had to be literally fisted to amnesia to accept itHeiki hecchara.
>>17784339Yeah the ranking really isn't a big deal to me. I generally will get at least 300th place, so that's all that matters. If I try, I'll get higher (image attached), but the payoff isn't worth it, so I just leave things to auto-battle nearly all the time.
>>17784266Wiki says its just rice lol
>>17784357The extra points are worthless anyway since you can just buy everything regardless as long you get the highest damage tier
>>17784357How long do you sit there with it only running advent to even hit that
>>17784382Yeah I can get 400,000 in less than a minute. I just leave it running to get extra points to make sure I can buy what I want at that time when the store resets.>>17784385Maybe 30-60 minutes, I don't really pay full attention. 26 turns is far shorter than those near infinite runs from before they patched it.
>>17783908god why does maria have to steal everything
Anyone knows where I can get the aufwachen wave form of every OP?
Could Carol in her prime take on current shema-ha and win?
>>17784442Shemha is only operating on 1/10000 of her power and managed to kill/ resurrect 3 people instantaneously.
>>17784266She said it herself in the first season during her self-introduction to Chris. It’s rice & rice. Or you translate it differently and she just said she likes food (without specifying her favourite). So, maybe yes, maybe no.(If not, probably that okonomiyaki?)
>>17784445I just realized those things Shem-Ha wears in her head are horns because all sumerian gods wore horned caps as a symbol of divinity.
>>17784455Didn't Yoshii draw her with bowls of rice in her profile for the manga adaptation?Because I think that's where we got the confirmation that milk+anpan is Chris' favorite meal
Uh-oh, Chris decided to try on her costume for Bikki's birthday and someone took her regular clothes.
>>17784578Sorry, I'll return them when I've finished.No I won't.
I got Bikki a doggy!
>>17784575I heard about anpan (second hand) from the gachage plot where Chris meets edgy Hibiki, but if someone could just dig up the manga page, that would help a lot.
>>17784493You've got it backwards, Sumerian gods are depicted with horns because that's what the Custodians wore.
>>17784598Just checked, Hibiki's doesn't have it.It does have the first mention of her butt as her charm point.Chris' does mention that her favorite foods are milk and anpan, but I can't find the image since Zoid didn't translate the bios in volumes 2 and 3 together with the chaps, they were translated later and as such aren't bundled with scans of the manga. Iirc:Vol1 has Hibiki and Kanade's biosVol2 has Chris(tragic and edgy version) and Tsubasa'sVol3 has Miku's and Chris' again, but this time fluffier and in Ichaival
>>17784617is the butt charm point pic from the official manga?
>>17784455It's really is just rice and rice. And I like to think that that's because at that point in time rice is the only thing Miku can make.
>>17784617Anyone got a copy of the vol 3 image, I got the other two
>>17784621thought it was from a doujin or something this whole time lmao
>>17784627What image? I got the vol 3.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIKKI
>>17784632And the manga is drawn and written by the chief character designer, Dan Yoshii herself.So now you know, Hibiki's butt was always meant to look extra sexy.>>17784634He means Miku and Chris' character bios like Hibiki and Kanade's here: >>17784621
>>17784634The encyclopedia segment for Ichival
>>17784648was dan yoshii the one that was only around for s1?
Happy birthday, dummy!
>>17784648>>17784650I'll take a look, need to download first.
>>17784652She is mentioned as part of the staff in the GX staff manga, actually. But I do remember she had health issues on and off that interfered with her work as a mangaka(not sure how that impacted Symphogear, I only know of this because I was reading a manga series by her when I looked into it)I do remember that her designs for Symphogear still pop up all the time, so my guess is she's still in the team
>>17784578They don't make bunnysuits like they used to.Kickass birthday present, though
Happy Birthday Bikki!
>>17784652She designs every characters and gears for the series including XDU. She also draws the official gorgeous birthday arts and these dakimakura.
Wait, is the shirt the present? If so, going to the party wearing it braless is kinda rude, Hibiki can't exactly take it now.
Stupid sexy birthday girl
>>17784684I'm not sure I understand what's rude about making the present even better by adding her smell and sweat to it.
Maria has already opened one. Let's pray this birthday doesn't end up in the news
>>17784627I can zoom in for higher res if you want, but you'll need to stitch it yourself.
>>17784743nice track and field miku
>>17784731It's ok, DMJii said they'll handle Maria if she gets drunkThey are capable when push comes to shove, a single drunk Ukranian isn't going to be an issue!
>>17784784If thats good enough then you're welcome.If you want me to zoom in then just ask. Though you'll need to stitch it yourself. Because of DRM I basically got to take screenshots.
>>17784793Yeah you know what, pass me the higher ones and I'll see what I can do later
>>17784671And senpai even warned her during practice.No one listens to Tsubasa. Well, Hibiki looks happy about the outcome, so whatever
>>17784819I could zoom in one more level, but then it won't fit nicely and it'll be more trouble than I care, not like it matters as its already a little blurry anyway.Right, as far as I can tell they should be overlapping each other, the spaces around the image should be the exact same for all of them too since I took a snip of the whole window.If there is anything missing, quote me so I can see it.
So my sister's gear is the key that unlocks the door to the Custodian world. Nice plan, Mamu.
>>17784826>little chris being taught yassai mossaicute
>>17784491>people keep mishearing GO HARD in Maria's new song as GOHAN and GO HANDSlel
No bday memorias or comic this time?
>>17785244? Both exist. Just check the message board for details.
Dense harem protagonist
>>17784261It's the same guy that has a video of himself showing that he has every card in the game at MLB.
>>17785278Fine looks like she's about to start making out with Germain in spite of Hibiki being in the middle.
How do i level a card to 6* on XD? Got the game not long ago.
>>17785299I think we can imagine where Fine's hand is.
>>17785388The card needs to be Max Limit Break (6 copies of the same card), and you use materials from the raid fights (dragon icon on main menu).
>>17785388You need 6 of the same card. Without it, you can't continue. Level up a card (red circled option). Level break it (blue circled option). Do that until you use up all 6 cards to max level break it and then level it up all the way. Rarity up it (green circled option). You need to farm in the multi-battles to get the special materials needed for that card (depends on the card). Keep repeating until you get where you want to go.
so we can all agree that shirabe would use crystrons, right?
Is it actually worth watching or is it a yuri bait like Girls Und Panzers?
>>17785920The latter, sorry bro.
>>17785920It's shit, just move along.
>>17785920If you can't enjoy GuP you'd never be able to enjoy Symphogear.
Why does it always play a dumb unskippable cutscene now if you get the guaranteed 5* cards
Now that Hibiki's birthday is finally over we can start preparing for the most important day.
>>17786251The day of the Serenafag genocide?
>>17786251Serena must be so tight
>>17786012I don't know, but I liked the old one more. Anyone know if its still in the game?
>"I am the Chosen One," Serena proclaims looking up at the sky.
>>17786313It's gone. The old one did not have the alchemists, which is a problem now, so they had to make a new one to include them to let people know they are regulars now and not just seldom appearing units.
The second round of birthday quotes is more personal than the first, as expected. And even then, some characters have more personal quotes than others.Hibiki's is pretty cute:>(engrish) HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR ME!>Thanks everyone, for celebrating with me! I am full of gratitude&gratitude!!Chris' is the cutest so far. The way she tries to downplay her excitement is something else:>Today is the dummy's birthday, right? Well, I guess we have to celebrate it.>(mumbling) I already got her a present and prepared the cake, I hope we aren't missing anything...Miku's is pretty cute too, as you'd expect. Looks like they were planning her party together, since they are the only ones that mention preparing the cake:>Food ok! Cake, ok! Present, ok! Now all that's left is to wait for Hibiki!Not gonna lie, I thought it would be scarier. Sometimes Miku's quotes are so obsessed with Hibiki, it gives me yandere vibes.Case in point, this is her Hibiki birthday quote number 1:>Today is the most important day of the year! We can't waste a single minute, no, a single second of it! It's Hibiki's birthday, after all!
>>17786365Does EdgeHibiki also have a line this time?
welp, the local xdu youtuber got fucking cucked.
>>17786411No Glorious Break or what?
>>17786415yeah he did 506 rolls
>>17786422>roughly $13k on rollsWhat are these nip smoking
>>17786395I am afraid not, her lines are also accounted for in Hibiki's menu, and she has no birthday clips, only holiday/season clips, just like SG&co.Kanade and Serena also only have 1 round of birthday voices and it's the impersonal kind, just like most of the main cast's first round of birthday clips.I wish they had given everyone 2 rounds of birthday clips, these are pretty cute and sometimes pretty funny.
>>17786430They know they're not getting laid or starting a family so they see no loss in burning their moneyit's sad really
>>17786433theres no excuse for hibiki but several of the other seiyuus are probably only around once in a blue moon. Fine lacks a lot of voices and they obviously don't wanna call her seiyuu in
>>17786442Did Serena even get a V2?
>>17786442I get that, but at the same time, they had to call in Kotobuki to record Bikini SG's lines, they could have gotten it then.>>17786445Nope, she and Kanade only have one each
>>17786411The guy that got 6 Glorious Breaks had about as many 5* berserk cards as local xdu youtuber has on your image when he just got his second one. When rich neet finally got all 6, he had way, way more of the berserk cards. Local xdu youtuber just didn't have enough funds to match the need that rich neet had. I always get screwed over as well, since like them I have a lot of cards and the game will lower your chances to hell if you have a lot of cards, but I'll never go above 30 rolls under any circumstances. I get especially screwed since I level up all the 3* and 4* native cards I have to level 70 as well, so the game probably includes those as well in its calculations. He should have stopped after 30 rolls or at least until he got enough of the Shirabe, Kirika, and Miku memorias for a MLB.
>>17786448Oh, and it's the generic kind as I said before, just:>Oh, today is Hibiki's birthday? Hibiki, (engrish) Happy birthday>Today is Tachibana-san's birthday, right? Let's celebrateWhich is the same as any of their quotes for the rest of the cast(changing the name of course) other than Tsubasa for Kanade and Maria for Serena
>>17786461Please pay Hocchan again Kaneko
>>17786460>I have a lot of cards and the game will lower your chances to hell if you have a lot of cardsbad account seeds general
>>17786460>the game will lower your chances to hell if you have a lot of cards
>>17784726Giving a used, sweaty shirt is bad enough but what is Chris supposed to wear if Hibiki takes the shirt?
>>17786470>>17786476Many people that I see on twitter and youtube that are in the $10K+ club like myself generally will go to the 20-30 (if lucky since some don't even get it then) roll mark to get 6 cards while a lot of the newbies or less than 6 month accounts generally get MLB in 5-8 rolls. However, even that luck is starting to lower. If you look at the Ogawa and Tsubasa banner, you'll notice that it goes up to 60 rolls instead of 30 to help them out. Berserk banner goes to 40 rolls. Whatever luck that used to be enough for 30 rolls isn't enough anymore, so more guaranteed rolls spanned over a longer roll session are needed now. You won't know these chances unless you cease being FTP or <$1K club and start spending that money to see your chances each time you roll.
>>17786524>$10K+ clubare you a wealthy lad or do you just spend all your money on the game
>>17786524If you genuinely believe that they are rigging the gacha against you, why would you continue to pay into it?
>>17786537beaten wife syndrome
>>17786531I'm stuck all day and night at work. It's not hard, but I'm still stuck here. It gets me money, but I can't do much with my life really since I'm busy. Though I suppose it's the same as being stuck in a room like the fellow anon, so maybe not much is different. Maybe you can do me a favor and get me a fox Dess since I qualify for that premise.Nah, I'm being modest when I say $10K. The top 10 whales ($100K+ club) do a lot worst. Though I can't really tolerate that nasty, cheap food they eat or use public transportation.Games, food, and car for me.>>17786537I can only believe the results that I see from people that share their experiences on their rolling. I don't go crazy to get 6 cards at once anymore. I just get my 2 (maybe 3) guaranteed ones and wait for the banner to appear again every other time it pops up. Remember I spent 2000 stones to get 1 Sun Bikki and 2000 stones to get one high cost SG (thank goodness I got lucky in the 25-30 roll mark). That was the final straw since it was happening to me for a good while (I still remember the 2000 rolls I had to roll to just get 1 Crystal Chris). I only go crazy for the teamwork alchemists since my build relies on having all of them to function properly.
>>17786537Gacha games are an even more evil evolution of the succubus known as a slot machine. At least slot machines give you a chance of your money back but the only thing gachas deliver is endorphins to the brain.
>>17786590people are always gonna be addicted to something as long as our global society remains as fucked as it is, gambling addiction is only about the 4th worst addiction you could have.
>>17786585Ah I see, not trying to say this in a negative way but youre the exact target for these games. At least youre spending it on mobage of a good series and not something like FGO.If I was a wealthy dude I know Id be a gacha slave lmao, feel like most of them could be really fun if you could roll as much as you wanted.
>>17786649Yeah it's fine, I understand. Work in a company where the CEO got his position from his father that built it up, but he's spoiled so instead just fucks around and doesn't do much. The management also don't care and don't do know anything either and generally don't come around as long as the work gets done since they get paid a lot for other people doing the work. Lazing around while you make sure the production gets done and you sit around next to the computer sending work files to the machines that do all of the work anyway while on /m/ at the same time. Barely do any physical work or typing. Can never leave the computer or machines for long periods of time and just have delivery guys bring you food at the door. Complete boredom while getting paid at work; a more perfect environment for gacha could not be imagined.
what the fuck did they mean by this
>>17786365That Chris quote is adorable and peak tsundereIs Miku ok with another girl dereing over her husband like that?
>>17786789Maria has, and is, a fatass.
>>17786798And that is why we love her.
>>17786789Why is Shirabe undoing Maria's pareo?
>>17786798>>17786804And how.>>17786812As a favor.
>>17786812It's feeding time.
>>17786821>Telling sawdaughter to mess with her mom during her birthdayTsubasa is a bad swordad
>>17786812huh, now that you mention it...
>>17786812Her Fine gets activated when Enki is close by.
>>17786789why does only maria have a new swimsuit
>>17786923She keeps getting fatter, so the old ones don't fit anymore.
>>17786923tsubasa may have ...cut her old one off
So, Hibiki's birthday memoria is pretty cute, although last year's still takes the cake for me.Miku and the other JK geahs decide to organize a performance for Bikki's birthday and so stay behind after class everyday to rehearse, but Hibiki starts getting worried because Miku isn't going home with her and arrives pretty late everyday.Since Miku won't tell her what's up, she starts talking to everyone around and they won't tell her what's up for obvious reasons. Hibiki gets so swept up in worry that she forgets it's her birthday when the day comes and the surprise is a success.Then, in the middle of the performance, Hibiki says they look like they are having so much fun and she is so happy that she grabs a tambourine and joins in.After the performance, Hibiki is still overflowing with happiness and starts hugging everyone.After hugging Chris, Chris fights back telling her to calm down and Hibiki says that their time together is growing shorter(Chris is graduating after all) and that she was really worried because they never told her about anything. Chris and Miku apologize for worrying her, but Hibiki says all this only made her happier in the end.They then mention that they have a follow-up party with everyone at SONG and the memoria ends.
>>17786923Maria isn't allowed at a public beach in Japan wearing that monstrosity.They had to get a new one. One less wardrobe malfunction-prone(a flaw that Shirabe is doing her best to fix)
>>17786923the real answer is:that artwork is from her 2019 birthday memoria. Maria was out in the city with the gaybies, and she kept throwing stares at this swimsuit thinking about "MUH SUMMER" once again. so they buy it for her and genjuro gives everyone a day off
>>17786948Why is Maria so obsessed with summer in XDU?The first bikini event is mostly about how much she wants to take a vacation at the beach, the second one cuts to her and Tsubasa at one point and she's complaining about that too and now this, why does she want to enjoy SUMMER so badly?
>>17786960the summer of her youth....
>>17786960They never state a reason but if I had to guess it's actually one of those bad kaneko jokes, because she's a slav and holiday resorts were a huge thing in the soviet union before everything turned to shit.
I want a spinoff about adult Kirika traveling the world to hunt immortal monsters with Igalima
>>17786929>After the performance, Hibiki is still overflowing How can a girl be this handsome and cute at the same time?
>Berzerk Bikki's first voice clip is LITERALLY a single gruntI couldn't help but laugh, it's even one of the grunts she gives on the menuI have to wonder if her second voice clip is another grunt or if Bushimo decided to be cheeky and it's something really cute and worth the work of upgrading her
>>17787041Just to add, she says nothing when you awaken her eitherBoy, they are overcorrecting hard for the whole EDGE Bikki saying regukar Bikki lines
>>17787045This must be some sort of reference but I have no idea what it is.
>>17787061Shirabe's namesake - a bunny moon. If I remember correctly her name is moon goddess or something, and her family temple has something to do with the moon. Help me out here, I'm drunk.
>>17787064Tsukiyomi was the moon god. He once lived with his sister Ameterasu but what kicked out when he killed one of her cooks because the food that was prepared, while delicious, was made in a way that was gross.
>>17787077Thanks! My brain is all muddled up.
>>17787061So, there is this old japanese folk tale about rabbits that live in the moon and pound mochi there(which is what DMJii are doing). It's rather common to relate bunnies to the moon because of that.Shirabe is a moon bunny for several reasons
>>17787082To elaborate, the shrine Shirabe is implied to be a child of, the tsuki shrine, is a real world shrine in Saitama that has a lot of bunnies around and is popular with tourists.The "tsuki" in the name of the shrine however, is not written with the kanji for moon 『月』, but it's actually a deprecated reading of 調, which is the kanji for Shirabe's name. This curious bit of trivia is implied to be the reason why the FIS people gave her a moon-related surname, because they were kanji wordplay dorks.
>>17787072Does anyone have this DMJii duet?
>>17786812It’s the opposite. Maria started undoing her pareo and Shirabe held onto itIf DMJii wasn’t there to monitor her, Maria would have unwittingly stripped completely by now
>>17787113DMJii are good daughters.

>Shem-ha is Aquarion logos
>>17787128Who is scarier, Miku and her Yandere former track club member powers or Shem Ha and her ability to forcefully transform matter at will?
>>17787134>TFW you love your step daughters but they keep sword warding you so you think you should just get them a nintendo or something so you can screw their hot mom in peace.
>>17787134Tsubasa only favors one daughter
>>17787134And she is correct.
シェム・ハの能力は、自身を示すその名が示しているように「言語」に由来したものとなっている。それは――言葉によって、構造式を書き換える力。喩えるならば、既にあるプログラム(在り方/構造式)に対し、プログラム言語化した自身の一部を滑り込ませることで全く別の存在に改造する不条理である。ダイレクトフィードバックから逆流することで、風鳴本邸地下に設えられた大規模メインフレームに侵入した「プログラム シェム・ハ」は、瞬時にしてその機能を掌握した他、浴びた対象を白銀へと書き換えて、無理矢理に物質転換せしめるといった埒外の脅威を次々に披露するのであった。anybody here ever watch that mediocore movie pontypool? that is literally shem ha.
>Haha time for 'ALCHEMY'
>>17787149why does she have to be so annoying when shes so fucking HOT
>>17787149Wait, is she really going to transition from idol to wrestler?This actually sounds amazing. I hope she does all of the taunting and showmanship we expect from wrestlers. She grabs a mic and starts making fun of Tsubasa and Maria as Elza just stands behind her doing "ooooh"s and shit, music plays when she goes in, the works
>>17787151If you take away the speed lines it looks like someone is tossing her on a bed.
>>17787156>Vanessa and Elza pop up wearing sunglasses walking behind Mila>Flat jokes and fat jokes flying TsubaMari’s direction>Shemmy enjoying every second of it, leading to this face >>17787128
>>17787156We're finally going to get NR singing when they do the WWE style introductions with theme music.
>>17787166Oh god, please, do exactly that
>>17787158>Maria actually answers in kind and reveals she is a fan of pro wrestling>Tsubasa blue screens and has no idea what the fuck is going on anymore
>>17787166That would be the best villain song Symphogear has ever had.
>>17787182>Tsubasa is a secret Sumo fan.
>>17787158>HEY, ARE YOU READY TO BE MIND FLAAAAAAAYEEEEDD!?>WE DON'T HAVE CHAIRS OR PLANKS OF WOOD HERE, SO THE SAKIMORI WILL HAVE TO DO!>I'D SAY I AM GONNA DRAG YOU AROUND THE RING, MARIA, BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE DON'T HAVE FORKLIFTS EITHER! I'M GONNA SETTLE FOR LAYING THE SMACKDOWN WHERE! YOU! STAAAAAAND!!
>>17787183The best song would've been a cliche villain monologuing song from Ver or Adam, but it was not meant to be.
>>17787189>Adam and Ver come back from the dead thanks to Carol and defeat Mila as a tag team of former heels in their redemption arcs
>>17787148https://pastebin.com/5Cyftq0jhere you go lads
>>17787189Best would have been Fine singing about love, but getting interrupted buy a hot blooded song from the gears and she loses her shit and responds in kind.
that intro from zababa's song is so litthx radio
>>17787187>Tears off Mila and Maria's clothes to put them in fundoshis
>>17787195If she's The God, then at 100%, she should be able to hack into the program that is the universe and rewrite it. Potential for best or bittersweet Made in Heaven ending then. Though if she's anything less, then likely she can't do any of that.
>>17787206I feel like shem-ha is actually a philosophical weapon gone horribly, horribly wrong. If she was the actual, first creator of the universe, all this focus on language seems strange.like, she's actually doing shit I'd expect a mary sue LN protag to do, stretching her superpower to the absolute fucking limit of suspension of disbelief.
Kirika hurry up, the plot is this way!
>>17787214panel 5 is more believable than panel 4
>>17787219uhm actually the city is a philosophical weapon created by decades of its citizens wishing terrorism wouldn't happen.
>>17787218It all comes full circle.
shem-ha:>I am the master of language. reality itself bends to my will.Enki:>What if I hit you on the head really hard and then turn on this machine that will make the entire world population into retards that have no idea how to create even a single language that makes logical sense
>>17786251Curious as to what game this is
>Shemha controls language>she can rewrite things by speaking to themEnki activated Balal so people would no longer be able to understand Shemha and won't be rewritten by her
>>17787211>If she was the actual, first creator of the universe, all this focus on language seems strange.In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.That's even the title of the next episode.
>>17787245well if she's god, who created her? checkmate custodians.
>>17787192I assume that's actual miku being held captive in the abyss or something?
>>17787259it's just going to be a dramatic scene to indicate to the viewers how miku feels being slowly taken over by shem-ha to indicate that she isn't fully gone yet.
>>17787192All she wanted was to be fisted by the gentlest fists in the world.
>>17787192>G Gundam end is actually going to happenFuck yes
>>17787268If we follow Shemha's keyword then she seems to "rewritten" Miku, or write her out of existence basically.
>>17787268>Mfw Miku is really gone and that’s just Shemmy’s fetish and she just does that to herself 2 to 3 times a dayBonus points if Hibiki and Chris walk in on her in the middle of it
>>17787432>>17787434Miku clearly hasn't been rewritten yet because shemha blew all her energy waking up and starting up yggdrasilonce she actually transforms the body into her old self we can start having TTGL flashbacks
>>17787432She hasn't overwritten Miku completely; if she had, she wouldn't look so much like her. And from that keywork it seems she needs a connection to rewrite something, be it physical or energy (like the bracelet beam) so, as long as Bikki goes Goku Blanco and dodges everything she can't do anything.
>>17787452she can just turn the air into poison
>>17787457I hadn't thought about that. But I'm sure ElfCarol and the bunnies can type very hard and counter it by reversing the polarity of the barriers generated by the gears. Or Airgetlam also contains enki's divine power and Maria will share it with Hibiki so she can fist reality even more than usual.
I like how the opening line of unlimited beat was actually an reference to the XV finale this whole time and nobody knew.
>>17787139That is flat-out wrong!Tsubasa loves both equally
>>17784272Maria looks great here. Maybe because it hides Airgetlam's terrible color scheme
>>17787138I want SoL where Tsubasa unintentionally spoils DMJii stupid by taking them along on one of her daily routines and treats them to amazing food and some fancy celebrity events which is normal for her but blows DMJii's minds.
>>17787583Shirabe is really cute.
>>17787583Shirabe's wife is a retard!
>>17787596Looks amazing, no joke. Comboing looks smooth, the special animations look awesome Only thing I'd comment on is that I feel like the timer should stop when they use supers and shit, that S2CA seemed ripe for timer abuse with how long it goes with the chant and all. Started at ~36s and ended at 17s
>>17787596It should be set up so if Maria wins a fight the game crashes.
>>17787148Pontypool was just a mindless memetic virus, >>17787130's Logos comparison is much more accurate.
>>17787596> Player 2 Hibiki is Miku-coloredHeh.
>>17787596been following this for months, and its just as cool playing it as it was watchingtried it with a friend and online works great too
>she sees your lewd Shem-Ha folder
>>17787744Miku's design really lends itself to a villainous look.
>>17786789There is no stopping Kirika first she spent all her SONG allowance on Gacha and now she is drinking cocktails
>>17787744I dont like this, I want my Shem-Ha to stay dorky
>>17784779>DMJii swap Maria and Chris' drinks in order to protect Maria's dignity>She turns out to be a happy drunk and turns 100% huggy-dere towards the birthday girl>Maria gets drunk from the mood and strips away every last shred of dignity she had anywayAt least Hibiki and Tsubasa had fun
>>17787782I want both.
>>17787855Mune no Uta
Friday the 13th DESS
>>17787855So Hibiki can fly after all
Kirika doesn't even know what a Friday is.
Why is Maria so abusive with Tsubasa?
>>17787964She's beating the sword back into shape.
>>17787964She's only imitating the only parenting she remembers.
>>17787964She had very bad role models growing up.
>>17787964She's denying the sword water so that she grows up to become a sweet sword.
>>17787583>What are you doing dess, Shirabe?>de?>I tried making shaved ice.>It's still pretty hot, right Kiri-chan?>DE-DESS!!>That's my Shirabe dess!>This is all we have for syrup>de.......>So I'll pour it and bring it to you.>De. De. De. De. De.(Note: heartbeat)>Could that be...>LiNKER>dess...?>such a dangerous girl dess...(Note: melon)
>>17788050Poor Kirika.Thanks for the translation.
>>17788070>spot the protagonist
>>17788135The girl in the middle who looks like Aoi?
>latest radio episode has Ayahi just going "make a chris/miku duet already" 4 minutes in
>everybody mentioned it was Hibiki's birthday yesterday>no one brought up it was Kayanon's birthday today
>>17788292But I already made this exact post. That counts, right?
>>17788292No one really cares about Kirika.
>>17788768Getting real S1 vibes from this but what's the actual context. Because we're a bit past a point where those two would be in conflict
>>17788778Probably something about the internal conflicts they've both been facing recently.
>>17788768>Hibiki's fighting days are soon coming to an endSo the symphogears are going to get destroyed?
>>17788811She has to ditch Gungnir to gain her divine form, so sure.
>>17788814she already managed to create a fairly strong divine form while wearing gungnir in AXZ. they'll just pull some bullshit like the handholding power lets her form the strongest divine form that bypasses the god slaying, while keeping the god slaying power
>>17788811The main picture in the XV site heavily implies that, yes
>>17788811I mean it's certainly one way to put a cap on the franchise. Life may continue and now the weapons are no longer needed.
>>17788937Until Symphogear GO and the newly introduced Neo Noise created by the Freemasons
>>17788941They will shift entirely to using Faust Robes
>>17788811I fucking hate that kind of ending.
>>17789069You better start preparing to rage now.
>>17789073I doubt I will rage that much but I will be very disappointed if Symphogear chooses to go out in such a lazy way.
>>17789082How is it lazy. There's no more need for them.
>>17789084Just like how there was no more need for them after the NOISE went extinct, huh?
>>17789084I can already see that colorful problem solving explosion all relics and leaving everyone intact. Maybe there will be a few shakes but its just a stupid universal problem solver that doesn't matter like mass effect 3.
>>17789088The noise only came back because of additional sequels they weren't a real natural occurrence. Once they're gone this time they're gone because the show is over.>>17789097Don't compare ME3 to this because the problem with ME3's ending was a lot of shit.
>>17789084Why is destroying the gears lazy? I really don't understand what you mean.
>>17789137 is meant for >>17789082 obviously.
>>17789137>>17789165Because the method is always the same and its always lazy and bland and we already had a version of it back in G.
>>17789179The gears where perfectly fine after G. You didn't say shit. Use details.
>>17789202Your missing the story beats that type of ending follows a strict formula and if the gears all broke after Visualization it would have just been that ending. Its hard to explain the convenient ways that everything lines up to be solved permanent at the last second but if the gears are destroyed so will everything else that's 'mystical' and it will follow that pattern.
>>17789224Nothing in G implied the gears where broken or sacrificed. The only implication is that they got fucked up a bit from slamming into the ground at a billion miles power. We're talking about them making the final farewell to their gears. There is no pattern.
>>17789224I can't for the life of me figure out what this post is trying to say.
>>17789242>>17789245I guess its impossible for me to explain. Damn Enki for destroying universal language.
>>17789250It's impossible because it bollocks.
>gears will channel all their energy into Hibiki (again)>Hibiki punches Shemiku>energy caused them to vanish into the ether>gears are now gearless>moon ruins start breaking down with now way out>Noble Red shows up and gives the Gears the last TP crystal to get back to Earth>at the last moment Vanessa and Mila push Elsa into the aura and wave>Fast forward a couple years to show Where they Are Now and how the world has changed since Hibiki and MIku vanished>radar goes off>last shot is a pan up to the sky at a meteor falling through the atmosphere
>>17789253There is a pattern and G was following it close until it didn't. And if the gears are destroyed in XV it will follow that pattern. I can't explain what that pattern is because I don't have the words but another example that follows it to completion is Kill la Kill.
>>17789262Nobody was following anything in G. You're talking bullshit. You can't explain it because you're a crazy person.
>>17789257imagine eating dinner with your family and you just see a guy alone in the corner doing this
>>17789278No it's because you're an idiot.
>>17789274I wouldn't be able to contain my glee.
>this can't be happening, I'm not Maria!
>>17789287She rubbed her jobbing powers into gungnir
will the moon get fucking destroyed in the rest of the series?
>>17789287>>17789291>I wonder if Kanade had days like this
>>17789279I think I get what that anon is talking about, G's ending almost tied everything up nicely with no future threats on the horizon. Fine's soul was destroyed, Ver's plot crushed, all the Noise gone (which were the only thing you really NEEDED symphogears to counter anyways, Genjuro was capable of fighting off a complete relic by himself). If the Symphogears themselves had broken at the end of G to top everything else off it would've been a "everyone lived happily ever after and nothing bad ever happened again and the heroes went on to be in peace" type end which was what was being discussed earlier.
>>17789262There's absolutely nothing that shows that they were going for a "All the gears lose their powers" ending in G, like Ryuko losing Senketsu at the end of KLK. Hell Maria telling Hibiki to keep her Gungnir is like the complete opposite of that.
>>17789305That anon did say "until it didn't". It hit ALMOST all of the notes of that sort of ending, it just veered away from it by keeping the Gears themselves intact even though basically every loose plot thread and potential had been tied up.Then we got Alca-Noise.
>>17789305It was following the story beats, before hand there's a pattern to that in particular climax and G was following it hard for a while. Its not the moment that Ryouko lost Senketsu or Hibiki keeping Gungnir alone its the shit that always has to happen first before that ending happens.But honestly my brain isn't even working right tonight so I can't even populate other instances of that kind of ending.
>>17789301>>17789312What's wrong with that kind of ending? This is an exaggeration but there are only so many TYPES of endings you can really do but an infinite number of ways to bullshit a sequel. The only PATTERN is that "it's an ending." Of course it needs to wrap things up in a tiny bow. You're talking bullshit. You sound like an idiotic TVtropes page. >>17789314So take it up with Joseph Campbell. This is some of the most basic parts of story telling. Unless you're purposely planning on extending the story the hero needs to end the story with some kind of finality and given up their powers, the very thing in the title of the show is one of the finale ways you can end it.And no, G still didn't follow this insane pattern of yours because even in the last battle no one was GIVEN UP there power. You may need to go rewatch it again but all they did was combine. No sacrifices.
>>17789316S1 ended with a fairly open slate, Noise still existed and got out every so often and it was noted the Gears continued fighting, and there were a lot of loose ends still despite them not intending to ever make a sequel at the time.>Unless you're purposely planning on extending the story the hero needs to end the story with some kind of finality and given up their powersHow on Earth is that a necessity for finality?
>>17789316>And no, G still didn't follow this insane pattern of yours because even in the last battle no one was GIVEN UP there power.Its not JUST about that the heroes lose their power its the way it happens. And I can't explain it but its there and its lazy, and the problem I have is more about the destruction of the mystic world than the lose of the heroes power. But even that isn't quite right.And no things don't need to be wrapped up in a little bow, take Bladerunner for example in basically any release or in the book there wasn't a neat little bow its alright if there's a bit of a mess it makes the climax of the story feel less forced.
I am a great wizard let me tell you what the actual ending is going to be. The finale will have X-Drive and X-Drive God Bikki in space then the battle will cause the gears to crash down to earth and they will be lying in a crater with their pendants broken. The final boss will then show up to taunt but then the gears will spout off some shit about the song in their hearts and start singing then their gears will reform so that they can rehash the S1 finale.
>>17789333>How on Earth is that a necessity for finality?Not him but you're not reading the full sentenceMade that mistake tooBad place for that comma
>>17789342Nigga he flat out said that the hero giving up their powers is a necessary basic part of storytelling. Read the sentence that came before it. I know he's talking about the hero's journey but I'd hardly call that sort of ending a requirement of any sort.
What will Chris' Amalgam be? Unless she goes for full arsenal with every weapon she's used, I'm expecting a bow.
>>17789350>chris will again gain her powerup when in a tight space full of valuable ancient shit
>>17789349>Nigga he flat out said that the hero giving up their powers is a necessary basic part of storytelling.>Unless you're purposely planning on extending the story the hero needs to end the story with some kind of finality and given up their powers, the very thing in the title of the show is one of the finale ways you can end it.>[Unless you're purposefuly planning on extending the story the hero needs to end the story with some kind of finality] [and given up their powers is one of the finale ways you can end it]
>>17789365Oh, I was interpreting that as them saying that you could achieve a supposed requirement to end it that way with a final zesshou. The way that sentence is written is a fucking mess.
is the ピコリン in draft folder really meant to mean the chemical picoline? i thought it was a phone sound effect or something
>>17789350Is there a convenient gallery of these?
>>17789374Think about the way that most of Shirabe's song lyrics are written. It doesn't seem nearly as weird then.
>>17789378the song is filled with technology jargon so i thought it might've been it>But I can't get myself to click 'Send'>Not Pikorinas in, she wont send it so there'll be no ding notification tone for kirika
>>17788811No, Hibiki is just getting old, creaky bones and slower reflexes.
>>17789386You could be right, just Shirabe's songs have always been filled with nonsense.>Educating DNA on mixed errors of realism>Thoughts and ideas from links can’t be represented as 0’s and 1’s>A disparate A.I. from protocol>Even the last security hacked by warmth>A hidden program of kindness, yes Searching, searching, don’t search for it>I also can't delete them at least I want to redeem myself
>>17789392That ball of chuuni non sense would be perfect for Shemchan.
>>17789410Delete you post, take a shower, and never return.
>>17789413Shirabe's Amalgam outfit is too cute!
>>17789410a lot of it fits honestly
>>17789410Fuck off, Smashfag.
>>17789413Am I the only one who never really liked the DMJii duets? I like the parts where they sing in turn, or sing the same lyrics together, but the chorus is always them singing two different lyrics over each other.
>>17789410Hilariously accurate in a number of places.
>>17789431I fucking adore their duets. The different lyrics over each other still work well, I can't quite explain why but it sounds nice.
>>17789433This is some advanced autism.
>>17789442It's a Smashfag. What do you expect. Retards see a thread not talking about Smash and feel they have to make it about Smash. Every damn time.
>>17789418Its golden garbage that should be cut off.
>>17789451>Its golden garbage that should be cutin half
>>17789442>>17789446Yeah how dare someone makes something related to a show they like in a game they like.
>>17789462You can like what you want but that doesn't mean people want to hear or see it.
>>17789469That's fine, such is life under the Curse of Balal. Here's the miis I used btw, got them through searching their names in japanese when they added the ability to upload mii fighters a while back but there's probably better ones now.
>>17789481That Tsubasa is questionable but the others aren't bad.
>>17789410Brawl and GX are good.
>>17789491Brawl is the Smash game I got the most mileage out of for parties and added a lot of characters I liked but goddamn is that one hot take.
A large part about how you're going to like this season is how much you're going to enjoy Noble Red. Are they really that bad?
>>17789497>Are they really that bad?they could have been handled better and get way to much screen time.
>>17789497i dont like NR but i love this season
>>17789497I thought they were good as villains that had to fight using dirty and creative tactics due to sucking ass in real combat, but now that they're just stupid powerful generic nutty mooks that will wind up being used as Amalgam punching bags they suck.Killing them unceremoniously via Shem-Ha and letting the plot properly go fully over to the Custodian thing, something everyone has been waiting for for fucking ever, would have been much better.
>>17789497No they really aren't, they do however tickle some gurofags autism and they often claim that their just justicefags.
So are we going to get 100% power shem-ha once she disables the moon? Since her power is words/language I assume the curse is heavily blocking her strength
>>17789410Except Brawl had a good plot with emotional characters, AXZ is the best season and XV is fucking trash.Are you really trying to compare the Ancient Minister seeing his kind get sacrificed with... what does GX even have to compare that with?
>>17789509I completely forgot that the Subspace Emissary existed. I don't think that image is taking it into account either, just talking about roster choices and shitty elements like tripping.
>>17789509>AXZ is the best seasonYou have garbage taste.
>>17789509>AXZ is the best season and XV is fucking trash.Not arguing against this per se but why do you hold those views? AXZ is a lot better than most give it credit for but what's got you hung up about XV?
>>17789520Literally everything in episodes 7 and 8. They soured the whole thing for me.
>>17789497I'm okay with them (Like I don't hate them or anything) but I agree with >>17789502, they've overstayed their welcome and should've been permadead at least 2-3 episodes ago. Why the FUCK should I give a shit about three literal who villains in the same season we're also fighting against the villain the series has been foreshadowing for four seasons now? There's 3 episodes left in the series (Not the season, the whole damn franchise outside of movies and Shinais) and we still don't know>What Shem-ha's overarching plan is (Asides getting her old body back), bringing the world back to how it was 5000 years ago could be vague as fuck considering what custodian tech is like. >What the fuck Yggdrasil is and what it does other than "making humanity unable to run away">What the fuck's going on with the moon>What Enki and Shem-Ha's relationship was like before all this Fine/Curse of Balal stuff happened>What the fuck happened to all the other Custodians I mean sure keep some stuff secret for the later episodes, but some of this stuff is shit we should've known an episode or two ago by now. Instead we get "Ohh look at us we're part of the darkness now guess we're all irredeemable monsters at this point so we might as well act the part" with the geahs fighting characters they should've pubstomped several episodes ago.Oh well, hope you guys are excited for the Noble Red song in episode 12 that they'll sing while fighting off some golem monster Shem Ha makes while the geahs go to the actual final fight.
>>17789536oh, so you're an antiGX autist
I can't help but wonder how XV would have been if the 70k actually mattered. I mean wars were started for way less shit.>Fudo pressuring the UN and Japan for unlimited power to do anything for his witch hunt on Noble Red and the Illuminate>Noble Red having a panic attack because they know that they are now public enemy #1>Elsa trying to reconcile what Millaarc just did with the cool big sis she knows>Vanessa showing off how damaged her brain is by not giving up on NR becoming human and living normal human lives>Millaarc freaking out because she only had a few hundred noise and she thought there was no way she could have killed that many for just trying to get out
>>17789338It's probably just the general feeling of plot lines being closed neatly into the final moments. The leftover dangers via the moon from S1 ended; nephilim's gone; Ver was shucked away; DMJii and Maria were taken in with a promise to meet down the line; the primary mooks (noise) were defeated forever and for good, so the primary reason for symphogear to exist did as well; Fine was finito.G was definitely very conclusive with its ending. Symphogear could have ended with G and I wouldn't have minded that at all. The only thing that stands out now is the whole SSJ thing, which has led to the current state of affairs. That shit was planned so far in advance... but even then its relevance was only elaborated on afterwards, and became the definite next-season plot hook in the final moments of AXZ. (The last BD commercial did too, but that's another thing.)Having the gears break irreversibly would have been a clearly drawn line for when the characters would move on with their lives, after having effected great change in the world (i.e. defeating noise for good). Having the final sacrifice also remove the need and ability for the characters to continue fighting as they did is a common trope for giving the ending a sense of closure.
>>17789544People have been rightfully shitting on GX since before you were born, you bandwagoner bitchnigger. There's more than enough reason for them to continue, especially when not only does Kaneko bring back GXshit, he does it for no reason and makes characters into Mary Sues for the hell of it.
>>17789560I just wish someone other than Tsubasa would seem to care. Maria was there at ground zero, man. She should be just as broken. Hell her be busted too could have been a better explanation as to why they weren't reaching out faster.
>>17789574>It's probably just the general feeling of plot lines being closed neatly into the final momentsThe plot lines being closed didn't feel neat it felt stiff and unnatural
>>17789588>Maria heavily shaken in G by any incidents where blood was drawn>Suddenly able to recover from being right in the midst of a massacre at her best friend's concert
>>17789588Oh, yeah Maria should also have been fucking ruined by it or at the very least showing off her slovic side that is just used to death at such a scale and freaking everyone else out with how well she was taking it.
>>17789392It's the overly-literal translations that you have to dig meaning out of. Just a few that I can think of:>>Thoughts and ideas from links can’t be represented as 0’s and 1’sbecomes something about how relationships can't be defined as simple data or instructions, which is how tools get taught to behave (and that ties into the line after that which you wrote)>Even the last security hacked by warmthwalls being torn down as she and Dess become closer (they do talk about this during their fights in G and GX, I think)>I also can't delete them at least I want to redeem myselfread the few lines right before that in the same song.
>>17789593>>17789591It's insane. Like if you scaled back the number to maybe a few hundred and the wingloli getting donuted you can Maria be shaken but not broken while seeing a mini version of herself splattered and then getting mind Flayed is enough to break Basa.But even the other gears and the bridge crew and well the whole damn country really should be talking about this more. Mega 9/11 happens and it barely seems like headline news.
>>17789595I know what she's getting at with those lyrics but the way they're structured is hilarious.
>>17789597>Like if you scaled back the number to maybe a few hundred and the wingloli getting donutedYou could have scaled the numbers back to like 7 people including wing loli and it would feel about the same.
>>17789608I mean you only really needed to rattle Tsubasa enough to lower her will power. I think seeing a child who idolizes her getting gutted would be enough on it's own. Maybe make some cute little bit early on where she ends up being a contest winner and gets the chance to meet Basa and tells her how much she inspired her to be a singer and then SPLORSH!
>>17789615Oh yeah if she you do that then it would work beautifully on its own but it wouldn't be a CONCERT scene with people dying to the noise left and right.
>>17789622Still do the massacre just don't blow the stadium and don't say you killed 70k. Maybe have them meet the girl ahead of time for a minute and they have a little chat and bam. The 70k was all exposition later you could have left that out entirely or just as easily said it was a hundred or so.
>The Yggdrasil is going to summon something so that Carol can have another fight while the gears are on the moon.>Genjuro will jump in too but the enemy will be overwhelming and Fudo will break out of prison to protect Japan.>Genjuro and Fudo will then make jokes to each otherI feel like there's some cultural differences about the value of life between us and Japan.
>>17789634The sheer scale of the attack and the use of bombs placed covertly was what was leading everyone back to Fudo supporting them. That aspect was important to the narrative, the issue is that the characters' reaction to it was horribly mishandled.
>>17789598It's all very robo-moe.
>>17789608I don't think 7 would be quite enough, since the totality of the experience was designed to traumatise a SAKIMORI after all. But nevermind the number itself. Nothing less than total destruction of the dream that makes Tsubasa happy (including via connection to her father's approval) would have been sufficient in the eyes of a crazed ultranationalist, who was far gone enough to start false-flagging attacks on his own country. The concerts represent and are a part of the daily lives of the Japanese citizenry, which is what Tsubasa is ultimately trying to keep alive.I mean he could have settled for a smaller concert, I guess. But 70k isn't much compared to what Japan lost back in the war, which goes to the whole point for Fudo, in trying to capture divine power to prevent anything from threatening Japan ever again. The threat was made all the more real with the nukes. It's all in his moral calculus.>>17789642This. There should have been some period of utter shock at just the scale of the attack, instead of a bunch of "daijoubu". I also think that a lot of anons misjudged (or misattributed?) the attacks to NR, and there should have been much clearer elaboration about NR's relationship to Fudo in that same episode.
>>17789681A lot of Anon's still think that the bombs were just Millaarc's noise.
>>17789681>I also think that a lot of anons misjudged (or misattributed?) the attacks to NR, and there should have been much clearer elaboration about NR's relationship to Fudo in that same episode.To be fair, at the time we didn't know Fudo was supporting Noble Red.>>17789696there were bombs? Or is this some retard /pol/ tier conspiracy theory?
>>17789681It was completely NR at fault. They may not have been the mastermind but Milaarc was the one who showed up and let hell lose while laughing like a lunatic. The bombs MAY have killed more (it wasn't clear) but to say they weren't hugely responsible is just as wrong.Another big issue was how they followed up on. We where checking in on them before we even began to see how it affected Tsubasa outside of a shock induced coma. What's more all the follow up scenes with them really didn't help to endear them to us when it seemed like they wanted a pity party but after following such a tragedy it's really hard to look at them with anything but rage even if dogo was making cute faces. All the cries of MUH FAMILY could only make me think of "Well what about those families"
>>17789699>To be fair, at the time we didn't know Fudo was supporting Noble RedThat's true. I have Fudo's conversation with Tsubasa's dad still fresh in my memory at the end of AXZ, so I immediately thought it would have been him. Then he pops up on the big screen and mocks Tsubasa.Yes it was bombs.
>>17789712>Yes it was bombs.That pic makes it seem like that was used to cover up the fact it was a Noise attack
>>17789712It still really doesn't take away from NR's involvement when all of their following scenes basically have them not give a single shit about it. Hell you could have had one of them try and call Fudoh out on going to far only to get slapped down but they don't give a single fuck. So any scene where they try to make them look pitiable is just annoying.
>>17789727I do find that Noble Red got hit with the ultimate irony.>wanted to use the power of God to restore their humanity>instead the power of God is used to turn them into fully fledged monsters that makes them a bit loopy (like in this pic, Vanessa looks Yandereish)
>>17789716>Scene directly after that has Shirabe saying that it seems very odd that the scale and damage caused by the attack were way too much for just being some random offshoot chucklefucks and Ogawa agrees with her that they probably needed some help from another powerful organization to pull off what they didPre-planted bombs were involved alongside the Noise damage (which would have been easily accomplished alone) and it was setting off everyone's bullshit radar.
>>17789735That look of crazy makes me think that Vanesaa and Milaarc are actually going to die. Hilariously with the focus on Miku Hibiki might not even get any time to give a shit about NR and that will be the legacy of Noble rust assholes that not even The Holy Sun Hibiki cared for.
>>17789716It was both, and there were distinctly non-red explosions after that ring of noise dropped once the vampire snapped her finger. Still ambiguous, but with how the first concert attack ended, it doesn't seem out of line at all by the end of ep 2 -- certainly there were anons who had already speculated bombs. Episode 3 gave us the number and more hints it was an inside job.Still, I blame the fucking architects. Who would build a concert hall that could fall off its critical support structure for any reason?
>>17789727They did make it clear that NR were pawns at most. And only the vampire was the one at the concert, if I remember right? I felt from the start that they were setting up for just the doggo to be saved if any of them make it to the end.
>>17789735>>17789746Vanessa's definitely broken.
>>17789760>They did make it clear that NR were pawns at most.They're expendable at most. They're still completely complicit in the attack and knew what Fudoh wanted. Just because they made a deal with a guy who double crossed them doesn't absolve them.
>>17789766>They're still completely complicit in the attack and knew what Fudoh wanted. Just because they made a deal with a guy who double crossed them doesn't absolve them.Absolutely right. They're another side of the whole "don't give up on living" message that Hibiki loves to spout.
>>17789727The only other person who even gets to think about that scene was Maria. Otherwise that 70k was only for Tsubasa. Which is super fucked but the show does make it clear that NR doesn't even have a chance to even try to convey anything to Fudo without the risk of dying.I still think they should have been allowed to talk to eachother about the 70k I mean Elsa has to know that Millaarc did that for so her.
>>17789859Would have been better than constant "Abloo abloo the world is unfair fuck humans"
>>17789872They never said that. But yes seeing them suffer under the weight of their actions would have been nice. But fucking NO ONE in the show talks about the concert, even with Tsubasa it all became about the Mind Flay.The 70k was a mistake
>>17789763Vanessa seemed to have brain damage well before that. Everything she says seems to be out sink with reality, and she seems unable to consider anything but her objective of making herself and the rest of NR human again. As well she asked Elsa if she should kill Ogawa.I want to see her rebooted and have her conscious returned.
>>17789990This pleases me a lot.
>>17790061Is for the way you looked at me
>>17789575i never said GX was good, theres a difference between disliking GX and being an autist about it
What are these two quests about? They say something about upgrading but I don't know what exactly.
Man, looks like Hibiki's birthday party was wild
>>17789285>with your familyWe must all make our sacrifices to keep hiding our powerlevel...
>>17789350Oh yeah, why are they in their Amalgam suits?Did Asumin just decide she wanted to draw Amalgam suits or does she know something we don't?
>>17790348Asumin has been wrong every time so don't believe anything she puts in a comic.
>>17789410Doesn't this apply to Nanoha too?
>>17790335Chris did some great party tricks too
Maria's sung her song twice now, but this second time wasn't with her transformation or Amalgam. I think it's pretty likely she might sing a b-side or duet with Basa.
>>17790395Apple ver. Amalgam with Enki.
>>17789990what does the text say?
>>17790439Seems to be some kind of Bleach reference.
>>17790439>A mere god dares to steal Hibiki away from me?Which actually makes me feel sorry for Shemmy. Miku was in the god damn track club, she doesn't know what she's getting into
Ok anons, episode is in less than 2 hours nowAny bets on what we're getting this week? I want Hibiki and Chris to duet if/when they amalgam and Mila better actually become a wrestler
Squid puns everywhere in this week's "characters watching XV" gag panel.Is this a reference to this week's radio or something?Also, poor Ayahi, Chris got saddled with the pun image for good against her wishes
>>17789431Looking exclusively from a melodic, harmonic and rhythmic point of view, polyphony is one of richest types of music you can create without resorting to complicated harmonies and rhythm structures. You could say it's to melody what jazz chords are to harmony. Listen to some Bach to see the potential of polyphony fully explored. If you learn to get into it, it can be some of the most transcendental music out there.
>>17790498Different anon, but I whenever subconsciously try to follow the song with subvocalization my brain gets mangled up.Still love them though.
>>17790468These puns are so japanese-specific and terrible that I have no way of translating them properly at all.>The squid we were preparing for dinner got burnt...>Indeed, This is no good>Though it is a squid..."Ika" = "Squid", "ikan" is a way of saying "no good" that fits with ShemHa's speech pattern. A literal translation doesn't even make sense, but I'll leave it to you guys to come up with your own squid puns.I was thinking of connecting "calamity" and "calamari", but I am no good at this stuff>Good going!Chris compliments the awful squid pun ShemHa made with her own equally awful pun. As probably everyone knows, "feels good" = "ii kanji" = "i-IKA-nji"
>>17790350You watch it, she is going to be accurate about Episode 13.
>>17790534This guy is an idiot>>17790468VA joke
