Creamy Mami collab with PriPara arcade game in October 2016

prad5 arcade game creamy mami collab

(Making a post since this is pretty big but don’t expect me to cover every PriPara news. I already have my hands full with Pretty Rhythm and even then I’m not covering everything in my PR news post anymore, only the most imporatnt things. As the content quantity of manga, fun things, and other, exploded with King of Prism popularity)

They said in October the arcade game will have a collab with “legendaray anime idol” so it can only be Creamy Mami. And the silhouette is definitely her. The loop is getting looped. When PriPara got announced and I saw Laala’s design, the first thing I thought of is Creamy Mami.I think Laala’s design is heavily inspired from Creamy Mami, to not say ripped off. I should rewatch Creamy Mami, it’s one of the few shows I saw as a kid I never rewatched again and thus don’t remember it much. Patlabor too. I really hate it when people tell you only like a show because of nostalgia when you already rewatched it many times over your life and always liked it. Dragon Ball, Saint Seiya, Captain Tsubasa, Attacker You! etc are all great and I don’t like them because of nostalgia. Anyway.

prad5 102 storyboard cover

Also some days ago, the storyboard cover illustration of episode 102 posted by PP’s director on twitter had Laala dressed as Creamy Mami. Maybe the one who drew it had the idea for it because they were in the middle of negotiation talks about the collab. Also this drawing was probably the first time they officially admitted Laala and Creamy Mami designs are so similar. I wonder if they’ll actually add her a playable character in the arcade game, or if they’ll just put a coord of her clothes in.

Since 2013 Creamy Mami got more popular with english speakers, and japanese young people discovered it as well, as it has gotten a lot of collabs and goods etc, as it was the 30th anniversary of the series. It was also included in the now dead Anime Sols crowdfunding.

Also I restarted watching PP. I’m at episode 87. Didn’t watch the show for all these months because I didn’t have the time to, but also because I am displeased with all the bad choices of s2. It’s good but could have been so much better, it’s distressing. I’m tired of pointing out the flaws and how disappointing S2 is so I’m still writing impressions while watching, but they’re shorter.

SRW OGMD leaks

Some videos leaked and screens too Looks even cooler than the best animations in Z3. They implied in interviews dark brain is coming back so i figured pachinko kaiser would get new animations but this is way more awesome than what i expected. all dat obari. This is pretty much anime. Gravion oniichan would be proud.

I don’t want to spoil myself too much so I stopped following the 2ch thread after Coustwell appeared. I did my J run with him so pretty happy he’s in, even if only as an enemy from what I saw for now.

KING OF PRISM by PrettyRhythm out on DVD/BD

It sold more than 20K  for now. If you count all the dvd/bd sales. Really happy. That’s actually around how much I predicted too with that stupid Garupan comparison I did some posts ago. Seems it wasn’t too stupid or far fetched. I want to get the limited edition BD but I can’t buy it for now. For now I only ordered the 3 books.

Edit: topped oricon too

Muhammad Ali passes away

muhammad ali Allah is the greatest interview

Was pretty fun how tons of well known racists against blacks or islamophobes French politicians went out to say stuff like “we lost a great guy” etc. The same politicians who call “radicalized” or “communotarist” anyone who currently do the same thing as Muhammad Ali, condemning and denouncing the government’s or the media’s racism. Trump tweeting about it was hilarious too.

I don’t really watch TV so only saw one or two reports of his death on French TVmedia, but most of them completely missed the point or/and really didn’t accentuate enough how he was a Muslim and fighting racism etc. And seeing the climate of state&media islamophobia currently in France I definitely think it was on purpose. They said stuff like he joined Nation of Islam without mentioning how it was a scam sect and not real Islam and how he got into real Islam later. They talk about how he got stripped of his champion titles without saying that’s because he said he’s not gonna go kill Vietnamese people who never did anything bad to him. While Americans keep being racist and treat him and others like trash. And how he was already at war in America anyway, and would rather die fighting racist Americans than die in Vietnam, and that he doesn’t care going to jail because he and others blacks are already in jail in america for 400 years.
They mentioned how “he had an oversized ego” without getting the point that it was an act as a boxer, without mentioning interviews when he said stuff like “Allah is the greatest and I’m just the greatest boxer”. They mentioned his match against Foreman without mentioning his interview after it where he said “I proved that Allah is God”. They mentioned how he refused that his star be put in Hollywood boulevard, without precising that’s it’s just on a wall, because he said “I bear the name of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and it is impossible that I allow people to trample over his name”.

In short I don’t think french media accentuate enough that he was someone who never backed down in fear of loosing money or his career etc and who always fought for peace& the sake  of others black and/or muslims like him and everyone else victim of racism. And I think french media does this in purpose so most people won’t realize how french politicians are full of racism or islamophobia, left or right parties alike.

French politicians are currently trying to better their image. They know the world currently has it’s eyes on France, with the floods in Paris&it’s region and with Soccer Euro 2016 starting soon. (I’m not affected by the floods don’t worry, though I am skipping classes a lot these days because of trains affected by it). Also for now I haven’t seen any French politicians running for presidency wish Muslims a happy Ramadan or stuff like that. Doing it right now would be politically suicidal. They would be accused of “communotarism”. Speaking of stuff like that, I still remember how hilarious it was when a few years ago Jean-François Copé, a right politician well known for his hate of Muslims, married an “arab looking” woman, and then published an official paper saying I DIDN’T CONVERT TO ISLAM DON’T WORRY GUYS KEEP VOTING FOR ME PLZ.

g reco 11 kurimu nikku 01 g reco 11 kurimu nikku 02

Part of the reason why Tensai Klim was so best boy. Too bad Sukari barely gets screentime in Kabaneri because it’s only one cour.

“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” is a worldwide known quote by Muhammad Ali including in Japan.”蝶のように舞い蜂のように刺す”. The first time I realized that was when I saw Excellen from SRW OG use it. Her seiyuu Mizutani Yuuko died a few days ago, and now Muhammad Ali died too. Stuff like this makes you realize anyone can die anytime.

Suparobo 25 annivesary event


PS4_PS3「スーパーロボット大戦OG ムーン・デュエラーズ」第2弾PV - YouTube [720p].mp4_snapshot_06.07_[2016.06.04_15.37.52].jpg

I really feel like replaying Exceed now. I really should to since I didn’t get much of the plot back then. It’s really incredible how they manage to animate it in a way that’s typically cool for SRW but also keeping the juggle feel and coolness particular of Mugen no Frontier. Really can’t wait to see the other attacks. And then please give him a FULL STAKE combo attack with Kyosuke and Arierre.

Can’t even type properly from all the hype

Aschen is in too as a subpilot for Haken. And if I heard right Haken’s Gespenst is pilotable by everyone and they’ll have fun lines, but Aschen can’t switch and become a main pilot. Looking forward to AschenxLamia stuff.

All the seiyuus were pretty fun at the event. Green River joking saying he’s voicing the XO girl in Cross Omega instead of Mikami Shiori.

Man  I’m really disappointed about V though


No Victory Gundam EVEN THOUGH IT’S SRW V(though i haven’t  even seen it yet it’s still stupid it’s not in)

They screwed up so bad, why there’s no V things?

I actually liked Z3 despite all it’s flaws like tons of units being attack only, since I liked the story and all the cross series fanservice jokes but I’m really disappointed about this. This is probably the first time I’m really disappointed about a SRW reveal.

In terms of series this is pretty much Z3 part 3. Without counting sequels etc, there’s 11 series here that were already in Z3. They showed new attacks for units from Z3 but I bet all their other attacks have the same animation. Zeta and Nu have the same animations except upgraded a bit.

At least there’s Cross Ange and it looked really cool. Really looking forward to Double Voltekka with Ange and Salamandisney. Hilda looked really cool too. Can’t wait for Embryo interaction with others series too. I hope this cheers up Fukuda since he must be pretty horrible now after loosing his wife some months ago.

At least they fixed Arbalest’s animation. Now they would really be taking us for idiots if they didn’t. I hope Sousuke and Leonard can understand each other and Leonard is recruitable. I hope they fixed Falke’s animations too. Clouseau is one of my favorite FMP character so I was pretty mad about that.

And I’m happy for the Shin Mazinger Zero/Shin Mazinger Zero Vs Ankoku Daishogun mangaka duo that it got into SRW while Terada already told them no once, because it’s too powerful. Even have the tweet saved though can’t find it right now. Too bad it’s units only though, no beef Doctor Hell doing speeches on dictators being cool for wanting to dominate the world and asking if the american president has anything between the legs for not wanting to do the same, while lifting him by the crotch. Probably no Minerva X either. I read Shin Mazinger Zero, but never read all the the sequel Vs Ankoku Daishogun sequel as there’s no furigana. Only know the general story from skimming through the chapters+the ending. Also ZERO is supposed to be evil and the final boss. All the JP fans who actually read the manga were all like “NOO KOUJI DON’T GET IN ZERO ITS EVIL ITS THE FINAL BOSS” in the nico comments, was pretty funny. I guess since there’s no plot Kouji can pilot it fine or something.

If I heard right Suzumura Kenichi is the one who asked Terada to think about putting Yamato 2199. They said Yamato is a super excpetional thing that’s it’s in. Even then I still don’t want to loose hope and want to believe there’s hope for a Super Battleship Wars with Seikai no Monshou, Harlock, Yamato, Moretsu Pirates, Cobra, Ulysse 31, Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu, Taiyou no ko Esteban etc.

Similar to how they finally announced a new FMP anime after it got in Z3, maybe we’ll get a Crossbone anime soon. I never read the manga though so can’t say I’m legitimately hyped about it.

Hiyama san and Water Tree 7 were at the event because Haken got in OGMD and Might Gaine and Cross Ange got in SRW V, not because they were announcing Mugen No Frontier 3. Water Tree 7 voices Neige in MnF so really thought they would. Anyway that’s what the “MnF3” at the previous live event actually meant.

If I heard right, the new producer of the SRW series said they put Haken and Aschen in OGMD because he used to be the producer for Mugen No Frontier. Terada is still producer for OG but this guy whose name I forgot is new non OG producer since Z3 or so iirc. It’s nice they did this now since Excellen’s seiyuu Mizutani Yuuko san died. They would have waited one more game and we would have never got recorded lines about Excellen doing jokes while piloting Black Ghost. chatting with Haken. Hopefully they aren’t the only two MnF characters in the game. Also Hiyama san was wearing a hat like Haken.

But yeah even if I was rich I would never buy SRW V. I don’t support scams. Just pirate it. As much as I like Z/ZZ/CCA, Cross Ange, Shin Mazinger Zero and FMP, I’m not giving them any money for that. Lazypresto reached new heights. I guess it’ll still sell a lot since it’ll be release in english. Never would have imagined non OG SRW in english one day. SRW is one of the reasons I learn Japanese.

Now that I think about it again, that’s probably why they reused so many series. They want to try and see if the English version will sell or not.They insisted saying it’s the first time SRW will be translated in English overseas, ignoring OG1&2 on GBA and Mugen no Frontier 1 on DS. And they insisted on how SRW is “crossing the sea”. V meaning Voyage is probably also a reference to that. So yeah they don’t want to take risks with this English test so that’s why they’re recycling more than 50% of things from Z3.
