Shallow stereotype isn't the same as shallow fanservice. Kusaregedo is not the same kind of shallow as Mina.

Nakoruru was always meant to be the tie in FES for Samsho in the same vein that Geese XiV tied into Tekken because of his guest appearance. She still will be labelled "KoF XiV". Since she is labelled XIV Nakoruru, her soul quest doesn't disappear when the collab ends and she will appear on the Kaya Banner too.
Oh, right. Also she'll use KoF souls instead of AS souls. (Did we ever get purple AS souls for loli Chang ?)

The in-game pop-up puts Charlotte's portrait on the check-in reward text and Ukyo's portrait on the mission text, implying they're both free. So basically the pop-up is misleading bullshit because someone at Netmarble doesn't grasp visual advertisement then, okay.
At least I can stick to the Haoh/Rim banner, nice.

Uh, apparently they'll throw Nakoruru in this collab rather than package her as a KoFXIV character after all.
If Haohmaru can be shop-bought like Armor King, then all I want is Rimururu, she looks nice.

No wait, the forum post says you get Amakusa by collecting items, but the game says Haohmaru is in the event dungeon... Haomaru's not gonna be free, is he.

Finally got Bad Dad Saisyu.
CP buff 12k (lv21-23), strategy buff lv11, I was stuck at 2:36 with my full team (balance, attack, defense, scrapping the bottom of the barrel to push up Mecha Goenitz's pathetic CP) but then I got lucky and he was vulnerable to Balance the whole match and Orochi (23k CP) took him out in 2:10.
So, grind for weeks or get lucky.

For the next collab : IINM the Tekken collab was revealed in summer showing 2 characters, and it only was released in November, so that still took a while...

They do that all the time in Guilty Gear, but I don't really think they'll make a super like that.

I'll start touching PvP again when we get the other arena characters (Eiji and Krauser, right ?) and maybe if I can connect to the championship/tournament mode at all.
Not interested in Kyo XIII and Mukai so I'll hoard a bit. I'm surprised they decide to have two FES banners at the same time, now if only they planned to use that money for better servers... I have a hard time even finishing the Saisyu 1-10 without the game telling me it can't connect and blaming my connection (fuck you it's not my connection).

lol, still shots in 3d.
Well, it does a decent job at reproducing the manga panel, I assume that's what they wanted to do, but at least make it move in the wind a little and put some fucking special effect that moves here and there.

Finally got a chance to watch the second half of season 1 from Netflix's Saint Seiya.
The 3D is fine, the animation is okay enough (well, for the characters' movements, anyway), and the Silver Saints fights are a step up from the first half, but man, the entire sound department just decided to fuck off from the entire series. Only the opening and ending are good (opening is great), and everything else is ultra generic and has zero tension, rhythm, or impact. Garbage music, garbage sound effects.
The complete lack of visual effects around the characters (beside the fireballs) is just the last nail in the coffin. Moses' Kaitos Spouting Bomber is literally one still frame with generic music in the back and a balloon pop. Jamian's black wing coffin thing is literally one still frame of a pack of feathers on everybody's legs, the camera looks at something else for a second, and then another still shot of everyone completely engulfed in black feathers, with zero movement. It's one solid object, not a bunch of feathers gathering on the target.
edit- oh wait, the tension in the music gets better in the very last fight against Graad. Okay, that's better, but that's really late.

Alright, I can do False Saisyu's 1-10 in about 8 minutes (and I got his 5* option card already). Time to grind that bonus.
Jesus Christ that burn damage. It's in the hundreds if he just hits you, but it jumps to the thousands if you hit him when he has super armor. Orochi's auto heal is enough to offset that hard burn damage, but I don't see how you can deal with that without Orochi and Mecha Goenitz's heal support and a full set of the maxed Tekken cards (and I guess the Wonderland set too).
(Also I don't imagine anyone will bother building up the terrible "burn reduction" cards, is that even worth replacing a Tekken option card or cooldown or whatever other 6* option card)

And the fight against Mature that just replaces her bleed with burn - just. Don't. Get. Hit. At all. This shit drains you so fast, especially with her repeated slash swipes.

They barely scrapped anything from 98 and after, and some characters have their best version in those years. The problem is that, like all gacha games, they release between 2 and 5 characters at a time so that they can sell every single one for a high price (with a few free units here and there), that's what takes forever (and they absolutely need to hit all the seasonal events all year round). Make 8 characters for 30 bucks and it'll go faster. Hell, take all the seasonal alts and make them real characters and it'll go faster. A gacha game definitely doesn't need nearly as much tedious fine tuning and balancing as a real fighting game, it only needs to upgrade some characters here and there to keep up with the power creep.

Lol the new Valentine event in Japan has idol Alice behind a straight paywall just like schoolgirl Xiaoyu. Okay.

You do realize that they've renewed the domain several times over the years and that never meant anything ? They're simply not letting it run out and get away from them, but they're still not doing anything with it.

Domain renewal doesn't mean any sort of return to the scene.

Oh wow, after all this time, Omega Rugal 95 is finally showing up. He'll probably be a FES character again.
Also some recent (Korean) datamine showed more characters like regular Elisabeth, and Adelheid. Adelheid is cool and all but he got literally the worse moves he could get from daddy, so I don't know if he'll be any good here.

Uh, you mean Terry ? Terry is available now on global, but as far as I understand, Zeroko is for JP/SK version, for the epic quest episode 2. We don't even have episode 1 yet, we won't have her for a long time.

About the paw prints, Sogetsu has a water animation and Iroha has a feather, and the paw prints is immediately followed by Mina's arrow, so I figure it's just the paw prints of that pet thing she has... which is apparently based on those Ryukyuuan "dogs" that resemble the classic Chinese lion statues ? I really don't think they'd still hide the last one yet make it that easy, and it seems pretty clear that the paw prints are coming together with the arrow.
Not saying it won't be Gen-an or Cham Cham, I just don't think the paws are about the 4th character.

Those lightning (?) spheres threw me off, but I guess that's based on the artwork for his battle card. They're bringing back the weird shoulder plates, shame, they managed to make it look less dumb until then...

In League, the green Jin is more of a pain than the blue was, in defense there were some decent options to tank and evade, but the balance characters that are available are a lot more squishy, with an invulnerability that runs out before Jin's combos end...
