Famitsu post.

It's official we have...5 different Haseo from G.U. alone

O_o

I think Ovan can have one of them that's it >_> I'm being nice that all I'm going to say about the whole Haseo and Ovan deal >_>

So .Hack//G.U. is known as .Hack//Glow.up. a.k.a. Grow up it hints to Haseo story

Now the 5 Haseo don't count from the ones from Link, Guilty Dragon, N.U. you get the idea so Haseo has lot of copies he can almost outmatch Azure Kite and Kite copies...lol

I want the game now but we got a bit and I hope we get new characters added to the game like BlackRose, Kite even Tokio you get the idea and maybe dlc?

I'm loss with all 5 Haseo copies personalities that will come in omg and that don't count Phantom Haseo from Guilty Dragon...hey that gives me a idea I'll save it for later

I'm always happy to hear some news from G.U. even something like this I still want this game badly

But yes this is little info on .Hack//G.U. that was posted by famitsu

I'm just re-posting it here

5 Haseo copies with the Kite copies we can...er...*cough* moving on

So who hyped for .Hack//G.U. I am.

So this is your last chance for gems the TVCM is going to be over soon.

Why so fast??

Wait...did Ashton and Mavelle not sell?? I did see a lot 'youtube' people roll of Ashton not Mavelle I think that was a hint there

So SO2 Michael event is going to be over with soon if your farming him do it now

And yes no announcement of any new program yet people are getting worried

My guess they are going to go back to 'girls' people did like 'Ashton' more then they did with Mavelle it was known on some twitter posts

But the problem was that Ashton wasn't that powerful as in OP in the matter he is alright but not that powerful and Mavelle falls under that also not being 'OP' like some characters we have.

However the fan base still use Ashton a lot I see more of Ashton players versus Mavelle players that says a lot

One rumor going around is you know how they 'promised' you can upgrade some skills right and get new ones? Well someone was saying they are only going to be for special characters...O_O

I hope that not right I want to upgrade my characters a lot of them need it

And I want Dimension Door on Fayt he need that badly he needs that dark attack
>_> giving him mirror whatever did not work

It just some people was talking about that *sigh* I wish for that upgrade to come soon

I just hope that rumor is wrong please be wrong I just don't want special characters to get it...

There are some other characters that need that upgrade badly win that upgrade hits the lower tier might be worth playing if you go by tiers I myself don't worry about 'tiers' but I know a lot of people trust that.

Come to think of it Sword users did not get a 'dark sword' yet as in weapons the Sword_Sheath did get a dark weapon you can tell I do want a dark sword also however I do wish we get one in the future

Back on topic

Do you think Ashton and Mavelle sold good?

The youtube video is rather 'low' compared to the swimsuit girls so...

This is odd the swimsuit girls did sell but it drop low the TVCM was watch so many times however from what I know they wasn't...that loved people rolled for them but didn't spend that much money on them

That why they turn to making Ashton they wasn't getting that money and the fan base had enough of girls so what happened?

As they said in the interview they are going by Popularity Factors this means for the characters they are making and what they are going to sell if Ashton and Mavelle didn't sell that means...

I think we will see win the next program is announced what way this ended

For now farm SO2 event and try to grab Ashton and Mavelle win you can but keep in mind they are going to be in the Gacha from now on they are not limited characters


Update info

>_> Mavelle buff her Ice skills are getting a buff

Now they are making her OP

No announcement for a live program alright this is bad we don't know what new characters we are getting for the update or what is going on

People right now are expecting a weapon Gacha nothing is being said.

But it was true Mavelle wasn't that powerful but with her new buff she will be OP in Ice she might be wroth it now but no buff for Ashton just Mavelle hmm

I'm going to wait for more info and if we get a new program or not people was saying it was supposed to be tonight er...today soon? however nothing was said so...

Hello


スターオーシャンシリーズ初のスマートフォン向け作品 『スターオーシャン:アナムネシス』

Ashton TVCM

O_o

Come and get your gems

But yes Ashton is the first guy we got in a long time since Edge we had that many girls

I foresee more girls in the future

But Ashton is not that bad him and Mavelle are both good but not OP

In Tier ranking they are alright Mavelle is pretty good and you can play auto with her but some parts you can't she makes you dodge

Ashton you have to fully control but some people do auto-battle with him also

Playing with Ashton in party I thought they would never collided right?

They did pretty much Ashton and Fayt collided >_> they can never get along Fayt 'protested' and I ended back with Faize in party >_>

Maybe the rumors are true you have to use Fayt with all SO3 team and he won't protest that what people was saying it was talk among people long time ago

And I do see Fayt with SO3 party a lot so maybe that true?

I don't know it was old rumors that people was saying 'Use Fayt with SO3 party' or something like that but I do know Fayt do get along with Faize sometimes and Fayt gets along with 'Prince Claude' also.

So my time with Ashton was short lived but he was fun to play with if you have Ashton I say Ashton and Edge would be good in the same party with a healer

If you have Mavelle use her with Swimsuit Sophia or Sophia and Fiore or just have all 'orb' team that might work

You can also use Mavelle with Faize and Swimsuit Sophia that might work and just rent a Defender like Edge, Dias, Swimsuit Myuria you get the idea

So if you have Mavelle and Ashton just play with who you want to play with I might try adding Mavelle to the party maybe she might work better then Faize maybe

For my alt I never did get any of them my alt party is Fayt and Prince Claude and Relia surprisingly enough alt Fayt is not protesting with Relia...unlike my main did



So this is the new TVCM and hopefully it do draw in people for this game.

Hello

Ashton has drop I repeat Ashton has dropped

Link-https://twitter.com/SOA_SQEX/status/903154499690283008

So what Did I get?



>_>


O_O Ashton


Luna is luck

my 1st roll and after that I brought gems >_< I also got a Itunes card for this account
>_>

Zero my alt not so lucky 5 rainbows in different draws all the same the only 1 new card I out of that is Relia so my alt now has a good healer T_T

No new draws for Zero poor Alt...

holy I never been this lucky with Luna before this draw I got Swimsuit Sophia

Hmm but I had to farm Ashton weapon that was annoying and after that I got the coins >_<;

So this is my main account now I got so many summons cards

I also drawn 2 times from the weapon Gacha and got the The Holy Sword Farwell O_o
Er compared it with Fayt weapon 'Sea Treasure Sword・Braublitz' S.Reimi weapon and well it falls short if you don't have Swimsuit Reimi sword use Holy Sword Farwell it has good stats for Fayt

Since on my main I'm not using any other attacker and sword user so I given the sword to Swimsuit Reimi it works it felt like they just traded swords :P

Ashton is alright and Mavelle has no casting time? That what people said

Ashton-
Character: Ashton Anchors

Northern Cross 27 AP - Power: ATK x 400% Max Hit Count: 2 Element: Ice
Sword Dance 39 AP - Power: ATK x 920% Max Hit Count: 30 Element: Fire (Self Recover 10 AP)

Mavelle-
Character: Mavelle Froesson

Shiny Lancer (Midair) 20 AP - Power: INT x 200% Max Hit Count: 8 Element: Light
Aurora Rings 35 AP - Power: INT x 460% Max Hit Count: 5 Element: Light
Freezing Impact (Connection) 45 AP - Power: 740% Max Hit Count: 2 Element: Ice

Prehistoric Psynard
Race: Avian
Weakness: Ice
Long Ass Note: Boss does attacks based on remaining HP. Git gud and dodge. Using weakness element and status affliction helps. Freeze and Seal also works to some extent. It may recover HP by using an absorption attack
Caution: If you do not defeat it in 7 minutes, boss will enter Destroy Mode and will do massive amounts of damage
Upon battle start, everyone will get a -80% fire resistance debuff
In addition, the Nightingales that appears with the boss will use Faerie Heal and recover the boss's HP.

So this boss fight use Ice weapons and Ice spells is a must and go after the add on first or else it will heal and heal and heal you get the idea and have a healer Rena or Swimsuit Sophia

They also have a gem sale

So good luck on getting any of them for now I'm going to not roll on my alt I think Zero is good now and my main account time to save gems

And yes the RNG is nuts but oh boy Luna is lucky for now Luna luck might drop

Poor Zero my alt.

And yes Fayt and Ashton are getting along somewhat I'll update later and see if they conflict or not *sigh* Fayt has to be the most stubborn person ever I just replace Faize with Ashton

Talk about stubborn Fayt would not talk until I did the new event and found who 'Ashton' was and all that >_> after that Fayt started to talk again >_< I think the summons have the most emotional emotions at times Prince Claude has no issue with Ashton in fact Ashton is clingy with Prince Claude O_o er...maybe that what Fayt is annoyed about? *sigh*

(oh right I've forgotten about Claude and Ashton...O_o that PA they can have hint hint *cough*...so maybe Fayt saw the hints they had?...and yes we know Claude ending with Rena but that don't count Prince Claude o_O) >wants to ship Ashton and Prince Claude...

It just gives me a take how there emotions work got to love the wonders of auto-battles
You can see everything and how they feel at times

Fayt just looked at Mavelle once just like he did with Swimsuit Sophia no issue it just the uneasy of Ashton for now and I just given Mavelle the dark orb even if she don't have any dark spells it better then nothing

I just notice something odd about Mavelle...do her and Albel share the same Knee Highs?
O_O I mean...*ahem* stockings? I just noticed that well...if you put them together they can be...purple and fashion *sigh* just put Mavelle and Albel in the same party...

No offense Albel and Mavelle users it just they have the same stockings almost.

Hello

So I rolled on my main

I was going to save for Ashton but this was too temptation and it got me

One rainbow I was like alright it's a double of someone I have

And I got...



O_O Swimsuit Sophia??


One roll O_o

Uh...

I got Swimsuit Sophia win I got Rena to 10LB >_<;

Swimsuit Sophia drops are real I feel sad to the people on facebook who want her bad

Well my leader Fayt has no problem with Swimsuit Sophia he did look at her once and ignored her so...

Er...win I play as Swimsuit Reimi or Swimsuit Sophia it looks like Fayt has no problem with them except...Wedding Rena and Rena I don't know why but Fayt don't like Rena at all

Swimsuit Reimi is at 3LB I'm trying to get her to 4LB and Prince Claude is getting up there

I think Prince Claude is at 5LB surprisingly Prince Claude gets along with Fayt and Faize

Got them in a party no conflict yet >_<;

So my main account has to good healers Rena 10LB and Swimsuit Sophia I'm covered

My alt has Sarah dear god and healer Ivilish >_> not good I just rent a Rena and I'm good to go oh my alt has Fiore

So both of my accounts have a orb users not that importation but I did keep getting orbs on both accounts so I got someone to use them

But both accounts also have Swimsuit Reimi witch surprised me and beside having Fayt as leader on both accounts my main account name is 'Luna' win my alt is 'Zero'

non of them are having my special name 'Xion' yet if you want to know Luna and Zero are characters names from .Hack//Guilty Dragon I used them for that and just brought them over here I should say character account names

Alright I almost forgotten

"【8/31(木)メンテナンスのお知らせ】 明後日14:00~16:00頃まで、新イベント追加などに伴うメンテナンス作業を実施いたします。メンテ開始をもってイベント「連邦とクォークの正義」や「常夏キャラクターピックアップガチャ」などが終了となります。ご了承下さい。 #アナムネシス"

Link-https://twitter.com/SOA_SQEX/status/902413851991261184

So if you're doing events farm now and I think the Swimsuit girls are going to end to
If you want Swimsuit Reimi, Swimsuit Sophia, Swimsuit Myuria or Swimsuit Miki roll now

if not save gems for...Ashton

Yes Ashton and Mavelle yes I almost did forget about Mavelle.

Now I hope I didn't use my luck for Ashton and I'll get Mavelle >_< T_T

Fun fact-
Someone did a picture of Sophia SO3 to her counterpart in SOA and well Sophia in SOA is a bit thicker and Swimsuit Sophia has a breast job they made her breast bigger in fact Maria is a bit thicker compared to her in SO3 they also did that to Fayt and yes Fayt was so much of a uke and skinny in SO3 in SOA not so much

(I'm sure SO3 fans noticed the changes with Fayt maybe that why they moved on from Fayt to Albel?)

Wedding Maria they slim her down to make her look sexy Wedding Maria almost looks like from SO3 the only person that didn't change was Albel the only thing that did change was his hips?
And the fact they added muscle to Albel to make him look more like a guy

I'm thinking all the swimsuit girls got a makeover somehow to make them sexy.

Hello

The interviewer was questioning why Faize as so power? As a non 'Ace'

The rest of the interview is all about them and there passion for the games

And why they are making characters it's all about the "Popularity Factors"

Meaning they are going to aim for more "Popularity Factors" a.k.a. Girls

This is there excuse to make girls girls girls girls girls girls and more girls

And yes Faize is a non 'ACE' but is a fast caster and pretty good he is OP if you don't have any Swimsuit girls or Rena.

Not only that they hint all the characters they made is what the 'fans' want

>_<

I didn't ask for this many girls

So it might be also a hint to more girls in the future >_>

Link-https://twitter.com/dengekionline/status/902003228509782016
You can read the full interview here

All the other characters they 'promised' they also say wait on them meaning they are not
"Popularity Factors" that what someone on discord said (Correct me on this one please)

I think this "Interview" might be responds to this event we got and are doing now
Ever since "Prince Claude" come out there ranking went to 6 I believe

So now they think it nothing but 'Straight romance' and 'Girls' that the feeling I'm getting from this Interview

And they also talk about the system the way it is and Gacha how it is

Why the interviewer only ask about Faize is beyond me they should of ask them
"Why so many girls?" or "guys?"

So this interview is many about them how they 'love' this game so much

And about the characters they made is what the 'fans' want >_>

Ugh...

This hit reality this was all scripted baited and sailed

I'm upset if this what they think!...

Ugh I never ask for girls I did want wedding girls but!...

If nothing comes out and more girls after Ashton I'm going to stop spending money on this
I love this game dearly and for them to say such...

I want to support it but you got to know square enix has been doing some shady things mostly about Final Fantasy XV I was trying not to talk about it but Final Fantasy XV is far off worse then us in Star Ocean anamnesis.

They got it bad the way there doing deals and it's all about the 'Popularity Factors' and I think SOA a.k.a. Star Ocean anamnesis might go that way win I say 'Popularity Factors' I'm not talking about the same as they was talking about this interview I'm talking about money

Now that something I don't want to go into I mainly want to talk about games I love and support going into what rumors and shady talk about 'square enix' I'm not going there there enough youtubers doing that already I don't need to add anything sorry.

Now back topic

I want them to listen to there fans but it almost looks like they made up there mind

We might get nothing but girls in the future it almost feels like all the argument over girls was this excise in this interview and this makes me sad if this is true or not I'm just getting the feedback from people on discord talking about it I would try to translate this myself but my broken Japanese is not good it might be to make out some words but...

So read this interview and see what you think

*sigh*

I have mixed emotions now

Correct me on this one if possible I'm going to try and read it myself now T_T

I hope this is not bad...

In Rena voice "Are you ready?"

Yes Swimsuit time O_o

Come on guys we can hope so so this is the last chance for Fiore and Relia chances and it looks like flower box Gacha will be ending I think the flower exchange or it the Gacha they was talking about.

This your chance to farm and farm and farm if you can if not wait for the update and watch the STAR OCEAN PROGRAM #14 to see who is coming.

And yes I got Faize weapon wooo it's not hard oh boy did they really Nerf the tree I remember it being 10 times harder and it just melts with fire weapons and Fayt is really good with that tree his elements but fire weapons like the fire katana helps a lot...er

Faize weapon boost his INT a lot at LB9 wow his INT is boost but not his attack.

fire katana it's name is Godflame Sword Kagutsuchi that long red sexy sword yes that one...not the Ignite Sword.

Dias works good with the fire katana and I think Albel might have fire abilities his rush but I used Edge for this fight and he works good this is on my main account.

And I got Faize up to 9LB I can max him out since he is easy to max out with LB stones so I might do that but I'm going to wait I want to see who we are getting first to make sure.

No LB regrets I heard some people LB some mages win the update went forth and they had salt they thought there mages was going to get more powerful it was salt.

So the upcoming STAR OCEAN PROGRAM #14 is coming up and watch out for that.

Swimsuit guys please come...

So do you think we will get more girls? Or a guy? Swimsuit time I'm excited time to stay up and watch video.

PB what?

Hello

My account at Photobucket just got flagged.

For 3rd party image hosting >_> seriously?

They want me to sign up for the $399.99 / Year deal no way so they went from a free website to a you have to pay or they will
terminate your Membership deal...

So they already sent me a warning time to look for another free picture place oh boy I'm going to have to
Download all my pictures

The e-mail they sent me is sign up for this or else kind of warning it felt treating my account is free if you want to know.

But no I'm not buying into this so I'm starting to download my pictures all of them O_O
(I got all my pics downloaded and I have them backup on usb flash drive so they are safe)

Wait what do I do with the pictures that the people who made them are gone??

Especially the .hack ones oh boy I'm going to have to think what to do with them...

At first I'm going to back them up to a USB flash drive and after that I'm going to look around for picture sites that are free.

This change started July the 1st it looks like so this is a update if you have a PB account and you was paying for it before the changes stated you're okay as long as you keep up the payments or else they will...be very treating *mutters*

I just noticed I have good cosplay pictures and a lot of good pictures so if the people made them are gone...

That mean they are mine?...T_T that not how I wanted it...

See this is what happens win you was a fan girl for so long and out lasted the fan people... *sigh*

I think I can post them on my tumblr account or something...I'll think of it.

Maybe win .Hack//G.U. is out for the PS4 I'll post some pictures O_o maybe some cosplay pictures maybe some fan pictures we will see

So what they did is lock my account until I pay them >_> not going to happen not only that they are forcing me to click on the ads for paying them...no way I don't have that kind of money for it $399.99 a year? no way.

I can download my pics I can't share them.

Time to move on to a different picture place.

And now I'm trying to download my pictures they are going slow with it I think they are doing this to make me give into them...

This is a update what is going on.

Test-

O_O Maria

I'm going to have to use dropbox it worked!!

so I'm going to be using dropbox for post for my doujinshi I'm not to sure yet.

I looked into Flickr and Imgur both sites I had problems posting pics on and getting them to show on LJ so I ended up going to Dropbox and people was telling me Imgur is a good place to go but you have to watch out for Imgur since pictures vanish sometimes there? One person was saying that I don't know if it true or not.

So Dropbox almost works like Photobucket and it let me post the pics how I want it to look so I'm going to use Dropbox for now.

For my doujinshi I'm still thinking maybe...tumblr? I don't know yet.
asukai: Flushed (Azure Kite and Haseo)
Hello

OMG!



It's here! Wait...Haseo has a new outfit and it looks like the story almost remains the same however what has been added to this??
Wait another...Haseo?? O_o maybe from a different timeline?? Or...Haseo has new power...theories huh...is that a strange looking dagger on his head?...or is that a ear piece?...wait why do that remind me of...DD...dun dun dun...maybe it just me at 1:17 pause it and look.

But yes this version of Haseo hair looks different almost flat no spike except that spiky thing on ear or hair or head and his outfit his mostly black versus Haseo X-from outfit that his black and white and his a sword user might be...another Haseo that my guess but not from this timeline...or G.U. timeline *cough* time travel is my guess.

Or it's Haseo new power either one and Azure Kite is looking good I want this game now.

Oh right

".hack//G.U. Last Recode has now been trademarked in America"

New twitter

O_O

Time is getting closer please release date.

And I hope this other Haseo if it someone else is a party member it would be so cool
But I'm thinking we might have to fight the guy however if it Haseo new outfit I would not mind.

Wait why in the very start it looks like 'someone' is watching the movies...at :05 maybe there is a reason for all of this...
.Hack//G.U. last Recode and why we have this other...Haseo?...maybe this other Haseo is looking into the past? Or...Memories??

I'm saying this all theories for now until we get the game I'm very excited for this.
asukai: (Fayt)
Hello

So Last time I told you I had gems right?

I was going to roll for Wedding Maria and Wedding Nel however that night...we got back late and I went to sleep >_>

So I had gems both accounts I rolled on my alt first nothing but Anne >_>

Today I just rolled waited didn't roll yesterday on my main account and I got...

An Rainbow I wasn't too excited I thought it would be a double of someone and...


Wedding Rena O_o





I wasn't expecting this seriously all I said no Iris er...Ivilish.

I already got Wedding Rena to 6 star I had enough mats and got her to LB1 so I was playing around with Wedding Rena and well...

My 10LB Fayt was clingy O_o he just followed me er...Wedding Rena around it was cute well Albel just watched and stayed away O_o

(To let you know Fayt is still leader I just put Wedding Rena in back and Albel in front and switched maybe that why Fayt was clingy and win I'm just not controlling anyone it's auto battle all the way)

after that I replaced Wedding Rena with Faize >_< and Fayt was turning around and looking at the camera er...screen I wish I had a video of all of this it was cute that was a hint that Fayt wanted sleep this game is cute and funny Fayt approves of Wedding Rena
But not Rena?...as far as I know Fayt has protest with Rena healer Rena...

I had to get rid of Dais because of this protesting it wasn't pretty and Fayt don't mind Faize O_o

So my alt got Wedding Maria and my main got Wedding Rena we're good to go.

And yes I got gems left on my main account but not my alt T_T

So for Waifu we got Wedding Rena and Fayt I think Luna is alright with them I got Rena to LB6 and maybe I'll start working on Wedding Rena since Fayt nor Albel are protesting with her and just Rent a Rena if I need to.

And I just thought of something Wedding Rena dose damage at 1LB she is powerful I'm thinking her and Ivilish might be OP since Rena has the cat gloves I've giving Wedding Rena the crescent gloves 'Rena' default weapon until I get another good weapon.

So good luck on the random RNG draw my alt Zero had no luck this time around and Luna got it.

Hello


Haseo has blue rose....O_o that a sign to either Ovan or Azure Kite but...blue blue flames...blue rose O_o (Haseo is best Waifu)

Yellow Rose are friendship versus Red Rose that are romantic.

Hint hint Tokio and Kite both have yellow roses okay Tokio is golden rose but it still yellow...
(That how far I go with flower language sorry)

This picture just has fan service all over it.

Now for the girls they didn't need to be there however if they are going to push for this they have to be there cannon wife er...Waifu.

Atoli I don't mind BlackRose has to be there you know how she is...>_> *cough* .Hack//Link BlackRose anyone?

Saika she can go with Tokio she is another Tsundere.

New website.

They posted the timeline

And yes .Hack//Versus was mention so was both phone games.

However we have no idea how .Hack//Force Era is we had a idea that they was playing it but we never got anything out of it that was before .Hack//Guilty Dragon and .Hack//N.U. come out.

But unfortunately .Hack//Link did happen the way they present .Hack//G.U. Last Recode tells me much if you recall Tokio has the power to time travel right? (Or Tokio has access to it) If they are calling it 'Last Recode' did something happen in the G.U. timeline that's why we are getting a somewhat remake? (That is a theory for now)

Oh man I know they said they wanted to draw in the younger 'people' that's why they started with G.U. not the original.

However if they do add...Tokio they need him as an adult like they had him in .Hack//Versus to show .Hack//Link did happen.

another rumor going around this might be connected to .Hack//Guilty Dragon oh boy...so Phantom Haseo anyone?
Link-http://dothack.wikia.com/wiki/Black_Clad_Destroyer

But if they are going do change G.U. timeline just a little don't you think Tokio or Kite would be in it?

I mean half the fan base was upset how Haseo fate ended in .Hack//Link it was almost like G.U. didn't even happen...but then again why are we getting .Hack//G.U. Last Recode something must of happen again.
I'm not going to think too much of this 'why it's happening' I'm going to stay with the hype...

.Hack//G.U. Last REcode for PS4 whooo I'm waiting for the date for it to be out and we do know that it's now trademarked in Europe
link-https://twitter.com/RPGSite/status/875356160408166400

So we're getting close the question is English or Japanese? I want both...but I can only buy one at the moment so I'm going with the first one that comes out maybe the Japanese voices but I like the English voices to...

Again this just my thoughts everyone can have different ideas and maybe half the guesses are theories for now we don't know if we might be getting Phantom Haseo it just a rumor.

However we do know that they are giving us so little info about this game...and it's driving me nuts and we don't know what has been added to the game and any new characters.

And yes I'm keeping a close eye on twitter it looks like all the info is coming from twitter >_<; beside the new website
Link-http://hack.bn-ent.net/

So get hyped for .Hack//G.U. Last Recode I'm excited I want to play it now.

O_O we need video! Seriously if someone else can translate this please do.

Time to import this I wonder how much it going to be?? I'm thinking PS4 downloading in the PSN store like how SO3 was.

I'm excited time to get Star Ocean 3 played...*ahem* beside playing Star Ocean Anamnesis for the phone.

Wait they didn't say who was added to this game...we have to guess??

We can hope to get more characters come on BlackRose come on Kite come on any Kite copy even Tokio.

Hello

So we watch the video on youtube and we got...



Link-https://twitter.com/dengekionline/status/874959589988487168

Wedding girls again

Wedding Rena and Wedding Ivilish both wife er...*cough* Waifu

it makes me think the captain and Claude are having a double wedding >_<;

Man our Captain has to stop dreaming of girls...and dream of some guys now lol

And we know that Ivilish the blond summoner is trying hard to be our captain girlfriend romance hints there.

But I really don't feel emotions for Ivilish unlike Rena who I do like.

So I ended up doing wedding Maria event on my alt who got wedding Maria and that event was...can we respond to them!?

It kind of bad our character is the silent hero pun indeed but I'm thinking they are going to let us respond to Ivilish since she is supposed to be cannon girl you know...every hero has them.

I do want Rena but not Ivilish.

I think people might like Tsundere Ivilish it just...'ugh' to me and giving the fact we got our character bonded to whoever we put as 'leader' for both of my accounts I got Fayt lol and maybe Rena for main and alt maybe wedding Maria.

All I know is they are pushing Ivilish train trying to make her...'amazing' honestly her original role was unique before to me it was but now we got a wedding version it just...made it 'ugh' to me sorry to say.

Alright I know some people do love and like Ivilish er...Iris but that just my thoughts on this sorry for being negative.

Come on Waifu wars we got Rena and Iris/Ivilish but no...guys?

we need Wedding Albel and Wedding Fayt and Wedding Cliff...come on but this might be the last wedding characters that sad.

They picked Rena because she was the most highest female to rank they picked Ivilish to make her more loved...>_>

And no guys? ugh...this is a bit disappointing but I hope for anyone who tries to get them good luck with the RNG.

Hmmm I'm starting to think they forgotten girls play this game to...>_> we had nothing but girls, girls, girls er...Sorry

But I have to say they do look cute I might pass on them time to roll whatever gems I have before the update.

If you didn't farm the events it's not too late to do so but time is running out fast.

In Rena's voice "Are you ready?"

Hopefully we can get new characters and new events and something new.

wedding pics.

So people are posting wedding pics on twitter so that drops tonight? er...today?

I'm excited to see people run around using the wedding girls will I buy them?

I'm not too sure I have Rena for best Waifu and Fayt so I'm good (Now hopefully they can get along T_T)

So get ready for maintenance and wedding girls the star of this madness into Waifu wars.

Now if we get the wedding girls that is.
asukai: (Fayt)
Hello

The wars of Waifu is coming soon so I decided the fan girl inside me said.


Fayt

and


Rena

Are best Waifu's for Luna O_o

And my alt Zero is stuck with Fayt and maybe Albel with no healer T_T

I end up putting that cat gloves I got on Luna's account my main on Rena she's cute with it I knocked Edge out of party and

I'm working on Albel.

So my part for my main is going to be Fayt, Albel and Rena but for boss battles I'm going to control Rena since she's 1LB yet I might work on her a little also.

I got that level 5 wind sword the on Fayt, Albel has that 5 sword I think it might be Dias weapon on him and Rena cat gloves.

On my alt I got Fayt with the The Holy Sword Farwell that don't do much for him but for flat out damage it helps a lot
my alt Fayt is at LB7 now I think or was it LB8 either one I just finished working on him so he's getting up there on my alt I'm using
Fayt, Albel and Dais if I must if not I knock out Dias and put someone else there.

So after putting Rena out of party the first thing she do is protest and Fayt ignores her that's going to be cute that after I got Albel up another LB level I had to remove Dias from party since Fayt at 10LB was really trying to get Dias out of there it was sad yet cute
that's on my main account.

In the end Edge was starting to act that way toward Fayt so that's why Edge is no longer in the party for now I'm thinking Edge was starting to get jealous over this...maybe if I didn't have Fayt I have to say Edge would be leader he has good stats and is powerful.
(And yes I did go fan girl win Edge reaches out to us in his window preview Edge has to the most flirty out of the guys toward us)

So my theory is everyone every summon we have might have Romantic feelings for our character O_o that just a theory for now.

And it just happens we might get a wedding event so what dose that say??

Wedding Maria and wedding Nel who are they trying to marry? My guess they are going to do a SO3 event with the guys trying to leave hints or it has to do with our character that my guess.

But that just my thoughts for now.

Hello

【5/31(水)メンテナンスのお知らせ】 水曜日の14:00~17:00頃まで、新イベントの追加などに伴うメンテナンス作業を実施いたします。メンテナンス開始をもって、開催中のEoEコラボ、SO4イベント前編、コイン交換所全開放は終了となります。ご了承下さい。 #アナムネシス
"5/31/(Wednesday) maintenance] 14:00 on Wednesday-will be doing maintenance work due to adding a new event to 17:00. With the maintenance starting EoE collaboration being held, SO4 events part, open all coin Exchange will end. Please note that."

Link-https://twitter.com/SOA_SQEX/status/869091398284222464

So farm farm and farm win you can Events will end and maybe new events will come and maybe wedding girls?

Now I said I was going to avoid the girls right? I'm going to see if they are worth it I do like Wedding Nel but wedding Maria looks too much like Fayt >_> that don't help sorry.

It looks like maintenance is starting sooner then usual hmm are they going to push for the girls much faster?

Are they adding the girls that soon? I would be surprised if they did.

So if you're farming EoE event do it now and it looks the first part of SO4 event will end also if I'm reading this right so you might want to fight that bird again.

I might do little farming tonight er...today depends on timezone we're in...Japan is one day ahead of us.

So 5/31/(Wednesday) maintenance] 14:00 to 17:00 get ready for that one.

And it looks like people on twitter are talking about the girls...already?

Alright time for Waifu wars part 1 lol.

Who do you love the most?

Wedding Albel and Wedding Fayt would kill the fan base any guy in a tuxedo or...dress would kill the fan base not the girls.

I know for a fact Albel and Fayt both brought in the money on the girls side Rena didn't do good from what I heard and the Crossover girls did good from EoE but if they do nothing but girls and girls and girls I'm going to be very disappointed ever since the EoE event we had nothing but girls and Edge was the only guy we go >_>

But I will accept if they do nothing but girls and add Albel in a dress I'm being serious if people can say they want Deputy Director Shimada and Cliff in a dress why not Albel? He partly there.

Sorry my fan girl taken over me

For the guys I would like to see Fayt in a tuxedo or his school outfit.

For the girls I think Rena might look cute.

Celine would be overkill along with Myuria can you say sexy enough?

The shadow picture they posted of who they have ready next looks like...
Sophia and Welch? People was guessing it can be Reimi but I don't know so it looks like more wedding girls?

The shadow they posted in

You will see the picture.

Link- https://twitter.com/SOA_SQEX/status/869025717442330624
New comic kisses all around oh man that look Sophia and Miki has.

I've always knew Sophia and Miki was the 'I am you're wife' type they are too flirty and pushy and...ugh I never did like how they acted sometimes that why I always avoid there ending and I know people/guys like Sophia and Miki.

On the side note-
I am playing Star Ocean 3 HD on my PS4 very slowly win I have time and it's fun the voices are a bit low?
What did they do to Fayt English voice...he sounds more...rough some parts he sounds soft normally but...
dun dun dun dominated Fayt? More like his Japanese voice I have the feeling they are trying to say Fayt is not the Uke here.

That would fit how Fayt is in Star Ocean Anamnesis.

Get ready for this update we might get the girls we might not but we do know we are getting a event.

Hello.

Some negative news on this seriously...

"Square Enix is shifting development of Final Fantasy VII Remake in-house. According to several comments it was revealed Naoki Hamaguchi, who was previously in charge of the development for Mobius Final Fantasy, will be taking on the top developmental role for the highly-anticipated remake. He made the following comments during the show:

“So far, development (for FFVIIR) has been carried out mainly with the support of external partners. However, in view of factors such as improving quality when the product goes into mass production in the future, the company has decided to shift the developmental system back to within the company, so as to maintain a stable schedule and have control over factors such as quality. We will be forming a robust system within the company to properly carry out the development.”

It seems Naoki Hamaguchi will be focusing his attention on Final Fantasy VII Remake in light of recent looking for various staff positions. It’s currently unknown what this means for Square Enix’s previous collaboration with outsourcing companies such as CyberConnect2." - End of Quote

Youtube- https://youtu.be/ZqyXu0SKpcM
link- http://www.jp.square-enix.com/recruit/career/group/1bd/
link twitter-https://twitter.com/Nova_Crystallis/status/869069753255702528

So if you don't know who CC2 is otherwise known as CyberConnect2 they are the people who do Naruto games and .Hack games now dose this mean that CC2 is not working on this project? All the hints I seen on twitter from CC2 are posting 'Naruto games' and maybe hints of '.hack' nothing serious yet but we know that CC2 is working on other games that are not .hack related at all.

Or was it them dropping CC2? We don't know all I know I don't have a good feeling about this.

So what dose that mean for Final Fantasy VII Remake?

Well we do know that they are recruiting people and the fan base believes this game is doomed now I know people are upset this the most beloved game out of the Final Fantasy I do want to play this game myself.

I was trying to avoid all negative news but I had to post this one and yes I know about the whole chaos that is going since square-enix has announced they need people for this game.

However I want to stay positive about this however since they put Naoki Hamaguchi in charge I think he's changing it and he's the guy in charge of Mobius Final Fantasy this what I did fear I think they did drop CC2 sadly to say.

This quote "We will be forming a robust system within the company" that means hiring people that are different? That means changing the story? adding people who they want? I don't like that comment.

I know I'm trying not to get upset about this so...I think that's enough talk about this and FF7 is truly a great game.

So this a little update about FF-7 R try to stay positive.

On the bright side if CC2 is not working on this...maybe we can get a .hack game O_o dreams don't come true...T_T

And I apologize for sounding negative this info I saw on twitter.

And this talk is about my theories nothing more but the quote from novacrystallis.

Hello

So I was wondering why I can never take Edge Japanese voice so seriously now I know why.

Edge Jap voice is Daisuke Kishio
link-https://myanimelist.net/people/440/Daisuke_Kishio

At first I'm thinking Edge personality might on the Naruto level of voice not action just...the way Japanese Edge voice talks...

I got to tell you it's toned down a lot in the English version very much.

It just every time Edge do something I'm hearing Hakkaku from InuYasha it that tone that Daisuke is using and it's funny and cute.
(I just come to realized Hakkaku and Edge share the same Japanese voice actor that surprised me)

That's why I'm not taking Edge seriously at all O_o with Fayt serious light tone and Albel dead serious tone that's quite a party.

It like they want Edge to be serious but not serious and trying to make him different that the feeling I'm getting.

Come to think of it I think that was Edge personality he was serious and cheerful before...you know what happen in the game that made Edge become depressed yes we know.

So maybe I just got a refresh on Edge voice actor but I got to say Fidel, Claude and Edge might the laid back people there voices and how they act sometimes versus Albel and Dais distant actions and Fayt serious yet sometimes light tone and possessive side why I keep saying Fayt has possessive side? I got just got that feeling Fayt don't like to 'share' it often conflicts with Edge and Rena if I have them in party...no my Main account that Fayt is not getting along with Edge at all like I thought he was.

On my alt Fayt over there is now acting that way toward Dais just a little not bad over at my main account.

(Maybe I'm not seeing it but both Fayt and Albel sometimes act like they are protective of our character from the other party people maybe that how Fayt is acting toward Edge and Rena it just the way they act sometimes maybe it not trusting the new people either that or they are that possessive on my main I put Rena in party back party Fayt will stop in front of her next battle Rena will run off in the distant I was like 'wtf' did you glare at Rena...Fayt? Yes Fayt dose that often with Edge who runs away...poor Edge)

For the girls if I had them around I think Rena would have a nice soothing voice I can't stand Miki voice at all sorry Miki fans I also like Clair voice and somewhat can stand is Celine voice despite not having her at all another girls voice I can't stand has to be Lymle the way she talks...sorry and Nel voice is alright another one I don't have beside healer Nel on my main account.


off the topic-
The fan base wants wedding Cliff in a dress...that what I'm seeing on twitter O_o now only that the fan base is quit...vocal so I'm thinking this June is going to be full of fan wars who is best Waifu is going to be I just want wedding guys we got too much girls already.

So I'm thinking with the wedding event if we had one our character marries... the person we selected I can just imagine all our summons/characters fighting one another just to be 'the one' as I said the fan base is quite vocal some people just want nothing but girls some people want guys and some people want them all.

How I'm finding out is put them on auto and pause the battle every now and you will see your party do something...maybe you can see what they do sometimes win I do that Fayt will react sometimes and sometimes he completely ignores me, so I'm guessing our summons have a deep bond with our character or I like to think so.


So back on topic I just thought I'd share with you my thoughts yet again on this game and if you're going to use Fayt just watch out for that so for my main account I'm using Fayt, Albel and Edge drama in the nutshell part 2 is my alt Fayt, Dias and Albel for anything major I rent a Rena she's that good for heals.

Ironic I made this post to talk about Edge voice actor and end up talking about other ideas.


This is my experience everyone experience can be different.
