Persona5A 3

The story changes are good and make sense but everything happens way too fast. They even skipped the OP. Though I think they might do it like a few anime in the past and only show the OP at the start of an arc to gain as much time as possible. There’s no jikai directly included in the show too except for the pics in the ED.

I could swear they just copypasted part of the game’s cutscene but I’m too lazy to check. Really happy they showed one of the best side characters, Mika. I hope to see her again.

Like, Joker is typing but his hand isn’t moving. I still I think the main problem isn’t that it’s rushed but that’s they’re trying way too hard with the fanservice. Well, this time it wasn’t as much as episode 2.  Goro didn’t show up too, unless I missed him. They try to reproduce the game’s aesthetics, but they didn’t have as much time or whatever, and it never looks as good. The phone looks bad, the fast forward effect looks bad, etc..

EDIT Oh I did miss Goro in the subway, that was a pretty good scene with him.

I used to think in the anime they’d say flat out Kamoshida sexually abused Shiho but they didn’t. The moment when Joker and Ryuji realize it during their confrontation with Kamoshida isn’t in anymore so it’s slightly less obvious for the play/viewer, though it’s still really obvious and there’s other hints now like showing more of Kamoshida’s true colors.

They did a better AOA animation this time, having the good idea to show everyone before and after. The fight still looked just as incredibly boring and weirdly static as in episode 2 though. One of the main problems is they cling too much to the game mechanics and want at all costs to show the enemies getting “down”.

Pretty Museum, new Pretty All Friends story info

Like I said on Twitter, there’s a Pretty Museum event which started at Tokyo’s anime center on April 21, will last till May 13 2018. It’s a museum like event showing all kinds of things about the Pretty Series. Pretty Rhythm, PriPara, KING OF PRISM, and Kiratto Pri ☆chan. They show non credit OP&ED, making of, storyboards, designs etc.

Most Yakuzas in Tokyo went there the 1st day and put pics on Twitter. Emu san posted lotsof pics. Early design PP pics too, which IIRC some of which were already in a PP book. I love PP but not as much as PR, and I’m not rich so I’m not buying the PP books.
Note that the Pretty Series explanation in the event includes KING OF PRISM in it. I could swear before they would consider it in but implicitly, only saying Pretty Rhythm is part of it, and the KING OF PRISM is part of Pretty Rhythm. Nice they changed that.
They definitely know what Pretty All Friends will be, (either a movie, a tv anime, a game, a drama CD like thing, a novel or even just goods) as that kind of thing is planned long in advance, but seems they still won’t tell us anything. The only thing we know about PAF so far is it’s a very good merchandising way to sell goods of all Pretty Series together. The cosmetics goods they released at thestart of April at Prism Stone shops are pretty popular.

However Pretty Museum also has a Pretty All Friends corner, with a “new” visual. It’s the same as before except they added each girl’s mascot. The mascots have been redesigned.

uruoisan was saying how they don’t like it how Rabichi is actually cute now, made me laugh a lot. The AD mascots  were ugly on purpose after all.

They also published story text for Pretty All Friends.

Pretty All Friends story intro text:

“Prism Stone Shop!! The only shop where every girls’ dreams and latest fashion gathers. When they arrived at Prism Stone one day, its atmosphere seemed different…Turns out it was a special day!! Under the effect of the Rainbow Bridge, multiple worlds’ Prism Stone Shops have merged!!  Multiple girls are guided by the Rainbow Bridge and are brought together: Aira, Mia, Naru, Laala and Yui. Inside the shop, they meet with Akaii Meganee who tells them the following: You girls are the chosen Pretty Friends! Travelling using the Rainbow Bridge, you will do live shows in many different worlds to collect Sparkle and gather your friends. Doing this, I want you girls to revive the All Friends Coord currently sleeping in the country of singing and dancing,  Pretty Prism Paradise. The girls are excited hearing about a legendary coord. Following Aira’s suggestion, they decide to take up the team name  “Pretty All Friends”. Boarding the “NEW Prism Trailer”, they embark on a tour across various worlds to gather the Sparkle and meet new friends. Thus starts the adventure of the legendary dream team.”

“Episode 1 ” text:

“The first place the “Pretty All Friends” team arrived at is the Mascot Graveyard. The mascots there all seemed to be depressed and lifeless…
“What’s going on, these mascots aren’t sparkling at all!”, “They lack dreaminess” Mia and Yui shared their thoughts. Suddenly, they started to recognize familiar figures… Shocked, they realize that their own mascots were in the Mascot Graveyard!! The girls ask them what happened. It seems that the mascots wanted to follow them in their tour, but lost their way and out of all places ended up in the Mascot Graveyard . This place sucks up the Sparkle inside the mascots, so they became unable to leave. In order to make everyone happy again, the All Friends decide to do their first live show of their tour. Needless to say, the song they chose as their first song is  “You May Dream” . Reinvigorated, the mascots decide to travel with the girls, like they always did. Now, let’s go look for the next Sparkle!!”

Impressions: Being the first heroine, Aira is the leader it seems. It’s funny they wrote it in such a childish way (I tried to reflect this in my translation) because another thing we know about PAF so far is it’s aiming the adults and people who were fan of Pretty Rhythm and PriPara who grew up. That’s why they released the cosmetics goods. And if you compare with their anime designs, each heroines look a bit older in the PAF visual. In a sense PAF is what I always dreamed about, and what I thought the PR All Star Selection tv anime would be about when it was announced. Though I want it to include Kinpri and Prichan, basically everyone. And make Akaii Meganee the final boss who actually tricked them.

As you should know, Rainbow Bridge is what you see Rinne on in RL and what they use to travel between worlds. Coo’s trailer in RLKinpri is the “Prism Stone trailer”, so I guess they travel in something similar. And they’ll drive it on the Rainbow Bridge. It’s like Magic Bus. I hope the “you’re gonna meet more friends” part means more characters will appear.

At first it seems it’s going to be a “let’s recover the sparkle” type of story for the nth time, like they did in one of the movies or what they did with the PriPara Switch game’s OG story with Mirai. But then turns out it’s a story on how they all became something similar to the Rinne system. Except they’re not Rinnes. They also seem to be the real characters and not virtual copies like Saints was supposed to be. “Supposed to be”, as you should already know, this isn’t true anymore, Aira Mia Naru appeared in IPP so the Saints did not turn out to be virtual. Like PR director said, that was just his idea and the PP anime did something else than his metaplot in the Pretty Rhythm&PriPara movie .

It’s really well thought too. At first I was wondering why the mascots were in the graveyard since only mascots who failed something end up there. They got lost and ended there unwillingly.

While it’s reusing many lore elements they talked about in Pretty Rhythm (Rainbow Bridge, Mascot’s Graveyard etc) PAF’s background may also turn out to be completely new and unrelated background to past series. Akaii Meganee mentions a world called “Pretty Prism Paradise” which isn’t “Prism World”. Until now despite being multiple parallel universes: ADMF, RLKinpri, PriPara, they were all connected by the same “Prism World”. Anyway it’s too early to tell for now. And they probably won’t elaborate on it much in the end anyway, so while I find it a bit interesting, it’s kinda useless speculating.

It’s really fun though. Even if they just publish the story in text form in events like that. It can also be taken as a meta story with all the past heroines trying to get everything back and get their own new anime or movie or whatever greenlighted at the end.

Full Metal Panic! IV 2, Obari does the OP animation’s storyboard

Was really good. The OP animation too was surprisingly much better than anything I imagined; When I saw Sousuke turn his head toward the light I immediately thought “wow this is Obari as hell”.

Turns out he really did make the OP’s storyboard. I don’t think I’ll ever become a sakuga aficionados who recognizes tons of animators like SakugaBlog people do, but I’m happy I can recognize anything Obari when I see it. Though it’s not a huge achievements as his quirks are really easy to see if you’ve already watched things he did.

Car chase would have been cooler if it was handrawn but it’s not like it was bad either. They did a really good job for this episode and it was much less rushed than I imagined. I used to think Gatou would rewrite the story to remove Speck to take less time. Completely forgot that Clouseau line too, he really is the best. Can’t wait for next week.

Full Metal Panic! IV 1

Good French.

It’s always amazing how good Japanese voice actors are and how everyone sounds the same 13 years later. Most of them did voice their characters on these past years’ SRW games etc too, so they surely had the time to get back into it. There was the Very Merry Xmas arc adapted into a Youtube drama CD too. Meaning it’ll get skipped here.

FMP IV is supposed to be 12 episodes, but according to the staff list they revealed, episode 7 will still be in the Namsak arc. They can’t skip the notTchernobyl arc which comes later as it’s way too important and reveals the secrets of FMP. Taking this into account, it’s actually impossible FMP IV adapts till the end. Which is weird as SPOILER: the Invisible Victory subtitle refers to the final battle. Gatou is writing all the scripts so maybe he rewrote the whole story to make it fit but then again I don’t think it’s possible. I think the most logical choice is they’ll announce a Invisible Victory Final movie at the end of the 12th episode.

The sad people who skipped Fumoffu when watching the series thinking it’s just “extra dumb things” must be eating their Savages now.

I really liked the episode. I’m not bothered by CG too, though I hope they handle the mecha action well in the upcoming episodes. Some people in the comment section of the ANN article I linked above said the staff listed is very good so I’m looking forward to it. I’m not a sakuga aficionados so I didn’t bother checking myself.

Maybe it’s just my imagination but even if Horiuchi is still the chara designer, I get the feeling the faces are more “Xebec” like now? Again I’m not an animation aficionados so I may be saying dumb things.

I think the one thing that can be called a flaw in this first episode is how the dialogue scenes are presented in a really bland way. Except for a few camera changes. There’s some good ideas like the very short focus on Kaname’s lips at some point of the confrontation with Leonard,  but most of the dialogues feel like watching a low budget RPG’s cutscenes (See Ni no Kuni 2)

As I already explained when FMP IV got announced in 2015, while I’m extremely happy Gatou maanged to convince the bastards at Kadokawa to make more anime of a mostly finished product, I was actually not that hyped at first. Over the years my FMP hunger got satiated with Sigma and with SRW. And FMP IV won’t have a scene with Sousuke calling Ranka a slut, or going “hey I don’t debate during decisive battles I’m not a Gundam pilot”. More Clouseau is still good though as he’s one of my favorite characters ever, looking forward to more Fowler Sugita too. And KUDAN MIRA.

I also wonder why they credited Sigma. Though I guess it’s normal to also credit the manga adaptation along with the original novel and I’m just thinking too much. I actually still haven’t read the LN fully, so I’m not sure if Sigma had differences with it besides the TSR only elements which they reworked again (Bruno being a woman etc). Maybe there will be Sigma only things in IV.

Sega announces Shenmue 1&2 HD and a new Sakura Taisen game

On Dualshockers
Sakura Taisen details

I’m surprised this was the first announcement of Megadrive Mini because I could swear I actually saw a Japanese site talk about it some days ago, and it wasn’t on April 1st so I don’t think it was a joke. Article was titled something like “Sega gets back into the hardware business” only to reveal they’re actually talking about a Megadrive Mini. Maybe it was supposed to be a leak, or a joke article which later came true. It had like 10k RTs too.

I actually like most remasters. True, it’s better to see new games, and depending on when they get released it can feel like you “wasted” time playing the original version. If a remaster or port with new content gets released only a few years later, it sucks. I know I’m happy I haven’t played Shining Resonance when I see Shining Resonance Refrain is coming out(Actually I’m happy I never played Shining Resonance period, its a good small budget game but there’s much better games to spend time on.) That’s also why I did a single 100% coop run of P5 and haven’t done a new game +, in case they announce a enhanced version.But remasters are cool. It makes it easier to replay games, and make them discover to kids in your family. Assuming you have the money to buy them.

Anyway, first off about Shenmue. I’m a huge Shenmue fan. It’s the first game we got on Dreamcast along with a demo CD, when I was in last years of elementary. It’s the game that broadened my English knowledge after learning the basics with stuff like Wonder Boy 3, Slayers, Kare Kano, Pokemon, ALTTP or FF6. I used to know every line in the game. When I first played Shenmue 2 in 2002 or so, I already knew there would never be a sequel so I was quite disheartened when I reached the end. I clung to hope over the years but by 2009 or something I completely gave up seeing the end of Shenmue in this lifetime. Last time I replayed Shenmue1&2 was in 2006 or something, I had heard about the duck race/medals subquest and the russian? girl bonus fight etc on the net, something I had never discovered, so decided to redo both games just to do it.
I remember thinking Yu Suzuki should just release a novel & reading an interview where he said he doesn’t want to. When Shenmue 3 actually got announced, I was really happy but at the same time full of doubt. My crave for Shenmue 3 just disappeared over the years. I didn’t back the kickstarter either, though that’s mostly because my favorite game journalists (RIP Nolife) convinced me it was weird. Plus there’s the fact that even this 3rd episode won’t be the end of the story. If 3 doesn’t sell we’ll just get back to square one, and sadly I don’t think it’ll sell.

I’ll probably get Shenmue 1&2 on PC though. At least that way I can replay it without worrying about the PAL dreacmast’s horrible lens dying.

Everyone on the net says Shenmue is a cult game, but once 1&2HD is out I doubt most people will actually buy it. In late 2000 or so when more and more games got out of Japan, I used to think the era of myths from the 90(it was even before too but I was born then) with people assuming a japan only game they saw in a magazine is automatically a masterpiece, would be over. Over the years I think this actually became way worse.  I don’t think most people who praise Shenmue or Sakura Taisen on the net actually played them, and I don’t think most of them will actually spend money to buy these news ones.

Most people won’t buy Shenmue once they see some popular reviewers or streamers call it boring. I myself often call Ryu ga Gotoku the successor of Shenmue, but both series are strongly different. In Yakuza, you always have action and billions of things to do anytime. Shenmue is a slow paced detective like game where you need to question tons of people and do a lot of backtracking in small areas (compared to today’s standards), with most fights being QTE only, and with only a few “free battle” fights where you’ll get to play Virtua Figther. While extremely slow paced and with a lot of time to do side things, your time is also restricted during many arcs of the games, with stuff like the forklift race and work in the 3rd CD of Shenmue 1, or all the part time jobs and later book training every morning during a big part of Shenmue 2. (Book training and sakura petal catching training which I had completely mastered last time I replayed it)

As for Sakura Taisen, I myself am one of those “fake” fans. I’ve known the series since I was a kid. It’s knowledge of Sakura Taisen and Sega AM7/Overworks which made me interested in Eternal Arcadia after seeing its trailer on Ruliweb, and later on Senjou no Valkyria. I watched all the anime versions too. But I actually never played a single game, except Hanagumi Taisen Columns 2. In my opinion very few people on the English side of the net who praise Sakura Taisen actually ever played any of the games, not even 5. Things are better on the french side though, not counting me. Maybe I’m pessimistic but I think the new Sakura Taisen will only sell well in Japan where it has always been popular with stuff like the musicals. ST5 released in 2005 in Japan but they’ve maintained the license since then. They recently did LINE stamps too(which I put as OP pic). Sakura Taisen got many apparitions over the years in tons of stuff. Its characters were in Projet x Zone. In collabs with huge mobage like Grandad Fantasy. It was added to SRW for the first time in 2017, though in the SRW mobage, and they just added Paris Kagekidan on April 2018. There was the Sakura Taisen Kanadegumi spinoff manga too, with a girl being the main character& an all male team. And there was a mobage as well, which the Sakura pic above is from, which closed some time ago.

Even if they release some kind of 1-5 compilation,(which would be a must buy if it’s done well, including stuff like the anime sequences from the saturn version of 1&2) I don’t think it’ll sell outside Japan. I think it’ll be the same problem as Shenmue. And again, most people will say it’s boring, discovering most of the games are like a VN.

If there’s new characters, I’m really looking forward to which seiyuu they’ll pick. And if they’ll restart live shows/musical again.

Maybe I’ll end up getting Shenmue 3 anyway. I hope you’ll be able to transfer your save from Shenmue 1&2 HD. I still have my Dreamcast VMs too.

Persona 5A 1-2

I don’t wanna say it’s lack of talent because there’s a lot of good ideas and good rewriting to make the story work. It’s just that along with the rushed feelings,  there’s the impression the staff is going through a fanservice checklist without worrying if it’s pertinent story wise or not. It’s fanservice without a soul. But I guess it’s still too early to judge and shall give it the benefit of doubt.

Is what I thought until I saw the horrible recreation of the all out attack, which made me burst out laughing, with a mix of second hand embarrassment. If I had some friend and wanted them to get into P5, I definitely wouldn’t show them this.  It looks incredibly incomplete, just like the OP animation. It’s weird they bothered showing AOA now anyway when there will be plenty of occasions later. But gotta deliver on the fanservice I guess. I also hope the OP will change later and they just didn’t get the time to finish it, because it’s just a recycled clipshow. The ED animation fares out better.

The “hey have some Goro and Sae” at the end is pure fanservice too but this is fine and the director did notify us beforehand we’ll get our fill of Goro.

Rain chapter 88

Online publication

Gonna start Rain “episodic” blogging each month because why not and I actually already wanted to for like 4 years now. I think it’s the best fantasy thing since Slayers so I wish more people knew about it.

We get to see Gunther fight seriously for the first time ever, against FemRain aka Alisa and she’s actually stronger. I used to think she’s a normal girl who only got strong because she became a Dragonslayer like Rain. When she was fighting Clarence just a few chapters ago, Rain did say she’s strong but doesn’t know herself the limits of a Dragonslayer, “The power we both stole from dragons isn’t omnipotent”. However this chapter shows she actually has a lot of combat experience. Seems the Exceed she uses was self taught through battles too. She still has a long way to go though as we learn during the Clarence fight, she confused her own auto triggering anti magic Dragonslayer shield with Rain’s.

Besides that it was a super funny chapter like always, Gunther and Yuuri’s banter, Rain and Alisa’s discussion and then Alisa and Noel’s banter being super fun. Along with Slayers, Rain is the only Fantasy thing that mixes comedy, seriousness and lotsof politics and worldbuilding so well.

Alisa started fighting Rain a bit but decides to leave once Sylvia came back. Alisa notes how Sylvia’s ultra strong & being neither a human or a mazoku. Alisa also asks Rain if he had a little sister, thinking his dead girlfriend she saw was his sister, so maybe he’ll realize she’s alive as a ghost or whatever she is now. We still didn’t learn why Alisa hates mazoku so much though, and she doesn’t plan on allying with Sunkwool/Shelfa/Rain’s side as they allied with Noel. This short Clarence/Alissa arc is over now, looking forward to what’ll happen next.

でびるち / Devil-chi

Online publication

Described as a love comedy in its official summary, Devil-chi is one of the few where it’s actually funny and with actual love elements. It’s similar to Seto no Hanayome, where the male main character is in love with a non human girl, but instead of going for comedy it goes for more serious themes and feelings. Like with most manga with “angels” and “devils” they’re more like aliens than religious related, with their own world and cultural differences. As such, after a few chapters it starts focusing on societal themes like poverty, racism, bullying etc. Unlike the usual where the main character ends up getting a harem of girls, here each character has a lot of focus on them and their feelings, which aren’t necessarily love. With currently 82 chapters out, the manga quickly goes out of the rabucome mold and doesn’t really fit in anywhere. You’ve got some slice of life chapters, some shoujo like love stories and misunderstandings(while never making you angry at the characters) and  shounen like fights. The strong selling point is definitely the characters, which will all make you feel empathy for them with their backstory and problems.

Currently weekly published on Ganma!. There’s no furigana for the kanji but it’s fairly easy to read. I recommend reading on your smartphone as the reader sadly doesn’t have a zoom function. Ganma! leave all the chapters online even when volumes releases, which is great. Instead of making you pay to read older chapters, you can pay to read the newest chapter earlier, which I think is pretty clever. Too bad we’ll never see the site’s sales numbers because I bet this works better than other paywall forms. If I get in a manga company or something one day and they want to start a online reader I’d definitely suggest this system.

Pretty Series movie, “Gekijouban PriPara&Kiratto Pri☆Chan ~Kirakira Memorial Live~” announced for May 5th 2018

PriPara official twitter announced on February 27 a new movie: Gekijouban PriPara&Kiratto Pri☆Chan ~Kirakira Memorial Live~. This will be last PP focused movie before Prichan takes over. It’s interesting they call it a “Pretty Series” movie and not just a “PriPara movie”, I guess it’s to show that similar to the 1st PP movie, it’ll also have Pretty Rhythm characters in it, but also Kiratto Pri☆Chan characters. I think even if PriPara ends, it’s possible future Prichan movies that are CG compilations with no real story will still have PR and PP characters in them.

They published a 1st teaser which is just PP scenes so nothing new. Maybe some of this won’t even be in the actual movie too since it’s just a teaser. Prichan would already have 5 episodes aired by the movie’s release, so the movie will probably focus on Prichan stuff and then feature PP and some bits of PR,  so you shouldn’t get your hopes up too much if you want more of the PR or PP girls.

There will surely be stage greetings events with i☆Ris. Their lastest song is titled Memorial too and its MV is like a farewell to PP with all the PP costumes they used in the past appearing in it. There might be events with the seiyuu too. And there will definitely be Cheer Screenings . Even before Kinpri revolutionized Japanese cinemas and made Cheer Screening ultra popular, they already did them in 2014 with the final screenings of the Pretty Rhythm movie for example, so there’s no reason they wouldn’t do it for this too.
They haven’t announced it yet, but similar to past movies there will definitely be a part that changes depending of the screening too. It would be funny if they do multiple routes like the 1st PP movie and include a boys route with WITH and PR males.

I’m not sure if this movie is supposed to be the Pretty All Friends project. What’s really weird is that for the PAF key visual, they bothered making new clothes and art, but for this PPxPrichan movie, the key visual just recycles art from each seasons’ key visual. Canamaji san also pointed out how the source code for the official site doesn’t mention “Pretty All friends” at all, and the summary seems to point out Prichan will be the main focus of the movie, so it’s still possible PAF will turn out to be yet another thing announced at a later date. In any case I was expecting PAF to be a CG compilation movie anyway, so if it’s indeed this, I’m not really surprised or disappointed. But I still hope Pretty All Friends will be something and an actual crossover with plot.

This movie will be directed by Nobutaka Yoda, who did Tobidasu PriPara ~Miina de Mezase! Idol Grand Prix(the 2nd PP movie which used 3D and afaik doesn’t have a DVD/Bluray release, so no one outside Japan has actually seen it). Script is by Fukuda Hiroko. It seems it’ll just be a compilation of CG scenes with no particular story like all the movies except the 3rd PP movie(the PriParis one which was the only “real” movie). There will probably be a baton touch like scene at the end with Aira Mia Naru Laala Yui Mirai Emo doing a live together.

They also announced the name of the OP for Prichan.

Lastly the fact that this movie exists confirms what we all already knew anyway, Prichan will still use CG for its live scenes.

Edit: They also revealed Prichan starts airing on April 8 at 1000JP time, first time Pretty Series uses this timeslot, and info about two more characters, Anna and Sara.
Akagi Anna(red hair one): Middle school 1st year at Kirari, a popular Pri☆Chan Idol. She looks like an oujou sama and her self produced channel reeks of celebrity, but she’s actually very childish and selfish. She doesn’t get along well with Mirai and Emo.
Midorikawa Sara: (green hair one.lol as expected someone called Midorikawa) Same year same school. She’s Anna’s best friend. She’s cool and has a rock and boyish fashion style. She refers to herself with “boku”.She follows Anna like her shadow, often restraining her when she goes out of control.

And it seems the Prism Jump/Making Drama equivalent in Prichan is called “Yatte Mitta”.

In other news in case you haven’t seen it on Twitter, PR director Hishida Masakazu storyboarded episode 8 of Hugtto Purikyua. He posted about it on Insta. He said it’s the first time he worked with Tsubota Fumi since Rainbow Live ended and it was tons of fun, and he didn’t think he’d get to work on a Toei show one day so he’s really happy. I’d like to watch the show but don’t really have the time, I’m trying to catch up on PriPara so I’m  using all my anime time on it and not watching anything else. I want to watch IPP before Prichan starts and do episodic blogging for it.
I still haven’t watched Kinpri2, maybe next weekend. It seems besides the new Yanpri goods each month, and Prichan’s launch with more info a tAnimeJapan2018, there won’t be any big news these next months. Kinpri will probably get a new thing announced at the June 10 2018 concert event. Until then, I’d like to finish translating the interviews in the PR All Star Selection guidebook, and then start the Kinpri books and bonus material like the stuff in the kinpri 2 Hiro special edition(stage greetings, events, etc), plus all the fan reports and other interviews on the net I have saved.  Honestly there’s so much stuff I’m not sure when I’ll ever finish translating everything though.
