>AKASHIC BUSTERING A COSMO NOVA
MY BODY WAS NOT READY

Man I think I haven’t been this excited since when 2 got out. Feels so weird that Masoukishin is actually over now. Didn’t think I’d get to see it ending in my lifetime really. No sequel for like 15 years and then 3 games in three years.  I didn’t play LOE snes version when I was a kid but I always liked Cybuster since it looked so cool in SRW4. Was around the time I saw Escaflowne too. Dat knight design, dat bird transformation. Dat Akashic Buster. It’s been one of my favorite mechas ever since. I played the DS remake some years ago but actually haven’t touched 2&3 yet. What I’m the most interested in is the story so I want to get a bit more better at Japanese first. Serves as both motivation and practice.

Samples of the Boys Collection

They decided to do a Hiro x Kouji Pride CG prism show sequence for the DVD because the CG director said it’s a waste they made the Kouji CG model and only used it once in the anime. I’m looking forward to it.

prad ookubo rumi talk show pretty rhythm visual book release commemoration

The 15th of September there’s going to be a talk show with Ookubo Rumi(Mia’s seiyuu) and some staff(probably director san and others) in Tokyo, to commemorate the release of the visual book(28th of August). apparently it’s limited to 100 people. If I find a summary of the event then I’ll try posting about it.

I like Ookubo Rumi her voice is so funny. Mia , Mori in Chokkyuu Hyoudai Robot Anime: Straight Title, and Nobunaga in Sengoku Collection are all so much fun.

Something PriPara related, putting it here since I haven’t posted about the new eps yet and it’s not something major anyway: Tetsuya Komuro will compose the third ED of PriPara.
(If anyone cares, I haven’t posted about PriPara 7&8 yet since I haven’t watched them yet. Can’t blog something you haven’t watched. And as of why, well the show is funny, but not really interesting. It’s just cute girls doing cute stuff with literally no overarching story, so I don’t really have any drive to watch the next episode to see what happens next, since nothing happens. It’s not like I’ll stop blogging it though. Right now it’s just not high in my priority list. Gonna sort my bookmarks and clean my room first. Maybe I’ll post about them before episode 9 airs.)

I wish they’d put Pretty Rhythm in SRW but this would be cool too.

Pretty Rhythm related news and random background info stuff the director tweeted since the last time I made a post like that in April. If you don’t wanna spoil yourself the best twists in Dear My Future, I recommend not reading the DMF part.

Pretty Rhythm All Star Selection guidebook get

prad4 guidebook 01 prad4 guidebook 02 prad4 guidebook 03

Pretty much like with the Rainbow Live guidebook, there’s way more stuff that I expected. There’s an illustration gallery, with illustrations by Watanabe Akio and Matsuura Mai, all the DVD covers of Aurora Dream and Dear My Future, and some of the CD covers of Rainbow Live.

After that,  there’s a summary of each season, with an introduction of the characters and the key moments. The Rainbow Live Guidebook covers 3/4th of the show. So this Guidebook covers what the Rainbow Live Guidebook didn’t: the end of the show. Apparently there’s some clarifications on some events too, like the Juné flashback in episode 48. There’s also a part about Hijiri Jin and Rei’s rivalry, Lucky Star, the penguins etc. It seems just like summaries of the events but maybe there’s also new details, haven’t read everything yet. What I did read though are the small parts about what every character did at the end, and they don’t say anything new. It’s just a summary of the stuff you see in the ending. For example: there’s a part about how Wakana and Ann confess to Kazuki at the end, but it doesn’t say anything more than the show, it doesn’t say if he accepted one of them or not.

Of all the pics of Wataru they could have picked!!!
Then there’s Aurora Dream and Rainbow Live parts. These are also just global summaries of the shows. There’s also stuff on some of the side characters who played a big role, like Furea or Togashi Karina.

prad4 guidebook 04 prad4 guidebook 08

One thing nice is that the two shows’ section are separated, so for the characters returning in DMF, you have their AD profile and their DMF profile.

prad4 guidebook 07

Shi Yoon best.
The part about the Korean girls made me realize they didn’t give them birthday dates. Not even astrological signs/month of birth. The Prizmmy girls at least have those.

prad4 guidebook 06

Each season also has a complete episode list, with a short summary of the episodes and the main staff who worked on it. It makes it much more easier to compare staff. Even for one of my favorite shows ever like Pretty Rhythm, I never felt like doing it because it’s too much of a hassle, but it’s really easy with this. For example, I could easily check that like they said at the After Party Event, all the last episodes of Dear My Future had scripts by Tsubota Fumi.

prad4 guidebook 09

After that there’s one of the funniest sections, a complete listing of all the Prism Jumps in all three seasons. It’s super complete. It’s listed in categories: the Splash jumps, the Shower jumps, the Spiral jumps,  the Fresh jumps, duo jumps, trio jumps, and individual jumps. It even tells who did what and in each season, and the variants. There’s even the ones that were only done once, like the special halloween ones etc. There’s also a list of all the Prism Acts in DMF. There’s even the “fake” Prism Jumps that were in the specials DVD shorts of Aurora Dream. That’s really cool that they included a section like that. Pure fanservice.

After that comes the interviews:
5 pages long interview of the seiyuus of Hiro Kouji and Kazuki.
3 pages interview of Shishido Rumi, who voiced Juné. All the RL girls had an interview in the RL Guidebook except her, so they gave her an interview too.
3 pages interview of Itou Kanae, who did young Sonata, Kaname, Hye In and Akaii Meganee.

I’m not a seiyuu fan but I’m really interested on what they say on each of the characters, it must be fun. Especially Itou Kanae, since she voices so many characters. I think it’s one of the few shows I know where one seiyuu voiced so many characters, I’m sure she must say at least one interesting thing about it.

Then there’s an interview of Hishida Masakazu, Iuchi Shuji and Tsubota Fumi. From the pics featured, it seems they talk about some of my favorite parts the shows, like Bell’s character development, Hiro’s obsession with Kouji, Mia and Hye In, Kyouko, etc etc so it should be super interesting. I hope there’s tons of new things that wasn’t already said in Twitter or the events.

prad4 guidebook 11

After that there’s an interview of Matsuura Mai. First two pages are about the girls, with pics of early designs of NaruItoAnn, different but a bit similar from the ones in the RL Guidebook. The Okama interview in the RL guidebook has stuff too but about the earlier stages of chara design, since he did the original chara design while Matsuura Mai adapted them. Then the two next pages are about the boys. It has the early RL boys designs they already showed at the After Party event. That’s why I don’t think there’s a lot of new things in this part because it seems to go over some of the stuff they said about the RL boys chara design at the After Party event.

After that there’s a two pages interview of Mieno Hitomi, on how she wrote the lyrics of the songs in RL and her impressions on some of the songs/performances in RL .

Right after, there’s a two pages interview of Akao Deko, on her job at series composition for AD and DMF. (Yes, this is actually separated. Mieno Hitomi=Akao Deko, but she’s credited as two different persons. I guess she wants to separate her scriptwriter career from her songwriter/singer career)

After that there’s a 4 pages interview of Watanabe Akio, the original character designer of AD and DMF. Watanabe Akio is a pretty good chara designer. Bakemonogatari is a great example. Too bad all the seasons after the original look totally uninteresting.
Back in 2011 when Aurora Dream was about to start, when seeing it on Random Curiosity’s season preview, one of the things that made me write it down on my watchlist is that the girls look cute. I actually don’t really watch shows just because of cute girls, but I still decided to check it out. I don’t regret my decision.

There’s the early designs of Mion, Aira and Rizumu. Rizumu doesn’t change much between designs as he didn’t design her from scratch as she was already in the game. There’s also how Mion was first called Mai then Rion, then they changed it to Mion. Aira was called Mii at first. The AD early designs in the book were published already. I remember seeing them a long time ago. I think from the Akio Watanabe Animation Design Works book which was scanned and that you can find everywhere.

prad4 guidebook 12prad4 guidebook 15

Kaname’s early design and clothes look super cute. And Aira’s mom was fat from the start hahaha.

prad4 guidebook 16prad4 guidebook 13

Kyouko used to have a more glamour look. Jun looks 100% awesome just like his final design.The Prizmmy girls all look much younger except for Ayami.

prad4 guidebook 14
Jae Eun, Chae Kyoung, So Min, Shi Yoon, Hye In
Listing them in case you don’t recognize them as they look so different.

Meanwhile for the Korean girls, Hye In had twintails.  I like these early designs more than the final ones except for and Hye In and Shi Yoon. Chae Kyoung, Jae Eun and So Min look older and way better than in the show.

The last thing is a 6 pages interview of Hishida Masakazu, Yoshihiro Otobe, and Kyogoku Takahiko, calling them “the team behind the CG of Pretty Rhythm”. It’s definitely the funniest looking interview, as they talk about what kind of illegal weed did they smoke to get the idea for Mion’s ultimate jump, Eternal Big Bang Beautiful World, or Hiro’s super gay jumps like Jounetsu Neppu Starlight Kiss. Jokes aside, they do talk about these two jumps in particular. Also about the evolution of the CG in Rainbow Live,  how they get the ideas for jumps and how they make them etc, so it’s by far the most interesting thing in the book in my opinion. If there’s one thing in the book I’m sure I’m gonna read translate and post about it here, it’s this interview.

Pretty Rhythm isn’t really popular so that’s the main reason I bought the book, I highly doubt anyone ever gonna scan it, or even make a small summary about the info in it. I won’t scan it either, way too much effort. It seems like a good opportunity to read stuff about seiyuu work, chara design, how people at series composition or directors work,  and tons of little details on how to make an anime in general so I’m pretty happy I bought this. It’ll also help me study Japanese.
Unless I die or something big happens, I’ll try to read it and post some summaries of the info&interviews in the next months. Yeah I’m not really in a hurry. And if someone already did it in the meanwhile I’ll just link it here. I’m also trying to do the same with the interviews in the Rainbow Live guidebook.
I also bought the movie BD. Speaking of which someone ripped it and it’s up on the net. That sure was unexpected. I got a Akaii Meganee postcard with it.

I think the only thing missing is a page dedicated to Beef Or Chicken.

tfw no localization>no sales>digital release only>no localization>no sales>etc
If I get a 3DS, I guess I’ll get 5 but I heard from Nolife it’s so-so. There’s also how 4 was a good game, but it was lacking compared to 3. (kinda like how Rainbow Live is the best show of 2013-2014, but was lacking compared to Dear My Future)
I’m looking forward to the Edo new one, but will it even get localized…Gyakuten Kenji was great though. Come to think of it maybe that fan translation of Gaykuten Kenji 2 is done now, need to try it out. Come to think of it there was also that live action movie. I wonder if it’s good.
