Goodbye forever.After a bit over 5 years of service, the servers for Kirara Fantasia have been shut down.
While the game is undergoing it's final maintence to end the service, players are still able to download and store data from the game and will be able to read the stories that they've seen in offline mode.Furthermore some fans have began work on establishing a private server to keep the game alive in some form, but it remains to be seen how succesful they'll be.By the end the game featured 246 individual characters, 685 character cards, voiced by 170 difference voice actresses, quite impressive for a niche RPG game from an already niche source like the various Kirara magazine mangas.
I love Yuno so much! Her game was the better part of my last 5 years!
If Bocchi anime released earlier and they rode the hype properly would it save the game.
I remember picking this up on day 1 and rerolling for a while but I didn't stick around for long after that. RIP I guess. 5 years ain't bad.
>>1133599A lot of people say that, but it only would've prolonged the inevitable.Bozaro alone wouldn't have carried the game for too long, and wouldn't have generated the big long term profits it needed, because player retention would be poor. Kirara lacks any big series to keep the momentum and not many cared about the original content.It also wouldn't have fixed any of the underlying issues with the game itself, or the managment of it.
>>1133569im here to pay my respect. 5 years is a good run for a mobage.
What caused the eos anyway
>>1133966Likely contenders are:>Arc 2 of the main story based around the antagonist torturing the main protagonist to try destroy their scripture/manga for that chapter e.g K-on!'s having HTT's memory wiped then also having Yui brainwashed and tortured>It focusing more on the original character instead of the Kirara characters>It stopped being profitable>Google mid way through May 2022 prevented non-Japanese players from purchasing gems, bundles, etc
>>1133970I wonder if the google change actually had mattering impact on JP gacha in general. I know I drop quite a bit of money on HBR, but I tried this and was quickly out of the game again. Didn't feel very beginner friendly, and that's usually ending up being a problem. (same with the yuuki yuuna one, though it was still different there)This was the first gacha I played where I reached a clear power wall, but I didn't even manage to figure out how to increase my chars further or what to grind to break it. The menus were.. well. 5 years old, I suppose. No hotlinking where to get what item (absolute standard in gacha), and in general cryptic systems that were probably added on top of each other over years. Not something long time players will mind, but with the market being what it is, you won't get new players. Like stuff you can unlock, but no condition given.. just weird shit in general.
>>1133970>>It focusing more on the original character instead of the Kirara characters>>It stopped being profitablethese most likely, the game was on rabbit support for a while but even them couldn't help the game forever
I seriously feel like it was not timing properly the release of the characters what killed it, that's not an issue for big gachas, but for games with small budgets that's important, and making most characters limited wasn't the right answer. The events weren't producing enough profit, that's why even after adding the onsen and marriage events they still were having polls about what kind of event the fans wanted to see next even until the last year of the game. There was also sometimes a lot of dead time between events that could have been used for reruns to limiteds, if limiteds characters came back every once in a while, it would have given motivation for the fans to keep playing.Also the swimsuit events becoming worse every year didn't help, at least the valentine's events stayed with consistently good banners, and both of these events were the main appeal to roll in the game each year (which is a problem in itself) but it's like they used their best characters and designs for the swimsuits first year and then had a hard time coming up with good ones.The inconsistency with the sex appeal is a big deal too, each mangaka sexualized the arts however they wanted, most fans were in big series like rabbits and kinmoza and both of them had only pure art while the lewd art was only for stuff with less fans like achannel and fruit tart, because it depended on the artist instead of drecom having any plan for it. They should have timed it when release a sexy adult character, then a sexy loli, etc, and then cute art for small series regardless of body type. Shamiko is even less lewd in the game than she is in her own manga, and the only version lewder was never in a banner, how were they expecting to make money with this kind of decisions?
At least Hamayumiba delivered on the lewd card arts.
>last bump 4 days ago>still on page 6So this is purgatory.
I need something to numb the pain.

good old floorhandsrara
some anon asked for this gif in the last thread
Is Madoka Kirara?
was it that hard to at least run a collab with pmmm, きららsisters?...
>>1133569https://archiveofourown.org/tags/Kirara%20Fantasia%20(Video%20Game)/works>only 3Well this is pretty disgraceful.
>>1140870Why would a crossover game have many fics in the first place?People are very unlikely to know every single franchise and their characters,which is essential for writing unlike art.Then again,most Kirara works aren't popular on their own either.
>no kirara bd in my bdwhy...
>>1141356Happy birthday teachers
Happy birthday fat chair
>>1133569Damn, that's too bad. I played for a bit to get Merry I was always hoping this would get an English release because it seemed like the story and character interactions were the best part. I played for a bit to get Merry, but wasn't really able to keep up with it.
>>1149650Here's how you immortalise Kirara forever. Wait for Winter.
>>1150415I hope bocchi joins

No! Mio shows off her panties to everyone, therefore not the cool bassist
every bassist is cool, don't fall for the anti-bassist propaganda
Mooching off your friends while being rich isn't cool
