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 VVV EVEN THOUGH IT’S SRW V WHYYYY
NO VOLTES OR COMBATTLER V
NO VANDREAD

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.

SRW OG The Moon Dwellers Calvina Tenia Al Van

srw og md calvina

Didn’t notice it first with the magazine scans but now that we have a good look with the official site getting updated, Calvina’s face looks really weird. Even worse than Melua’s face. At least Melua’s face is just typical post 2010 kawaii face. Calvina’s face is just bad. Her face looks normal in the battle portraits too. It’s just her main art that they somehow screwed up.

Not gonna write a post for every update. I’m just really surprised at how weird her face is. Also I’m still betting on her being voiced by M.A.O

In terms of clothes all the character’s designs are better compared ot the original J designs. Tenia’s clothes didn’t change much; Katia got more detail. Melua’s dress is really nice. But her original J design with the pencil skirt was nice too. There isn’t that many pencil skirts.

Bellzelutte description says “one of Katia Tenia or Melua” so both Calvina and Touya will be able to switch between the girls like in J, that’s cool. I still hope they weren’t lazy and actually made in HD 3 different finisher animations for the mechs’s upgrades, depending on the girl, just like in J.

SRW OG The Moon Dwellers english version announced

This is really big news. Really nice. Makes me really happy. Hopefully every OG game will be translated now. Maybe even non OG too.

I’d actually buy it but it’s for ps4 only. These days I only buy games in Japanese because of wanting to practice with them, and I reached a point where playing games in English makes me feel I’m wasting part of the time used to play, as if I was playing them in French.  It’s a real shame it’s ps4 only. I’m not planning to buy one anytime soon. Sometimes it isn’t bad, I bought Yoru no Nai Kuni in Japanese on ps3. If I waited for the english version, I would have waited for nothing since us/eu version is ps4 only.

 Even if there’s a risk the English translation is bad like SAO Infinity Moment, it would be nice to have the game in English so if I ever get kids they could play it more easily. Or just to lent it to friends. I guess I’ll just tell them to buy it. Anyway I’ll just get the Japanese version like always. On ps3.

Super Robot Wars The Moon Dwellers announced

The redesigns are all ok I guess. They made Melua’s chest bigger to get on with the heavier times of pandering.

It’s not numbered but it doesn’t seem like it’ll be a short game. I hope Cybuster and other MK chars gets to be in midway or something. Would be really nice if somehow every single MK character would get in OG? now that their series are over.

Never played GC so don’t really know much about it. I just know it’s being translated. Really looking forward to Touya and Calvina. It says at the start Katia and Melua will be with Touya piloting Granteed, so Festenia is with Calvina and either Coustwell or Bellzelute. It says Calvina route will be harder too so that makes me even more hyped to play as her.

Then I guess that when route rejoins, Touya and Calvina will each be able too choose one among the three girls and one of the mech, except  Granteed is now locked to Touya. It’ll be awesome if powerpuff girls gets to pilot instead of just subpiloting too. Probably as some secret. “Granteed’s story being changed to be locked to Touya” means it’ll probably be what his dad used to pilot instead of one of the Raftclanz or something. Maybe even Shana Mia/blue haired moon princess will be playable too.

In any case they’ll rewrite the plot to make it better, and to mix it with other things. The Moon Dwellers obviously refers to J but I’m betting it has multiple meanings like “The Inpsector”. There’s a chance there will be another game’s story covered besides J and GC.

The interview actually mention the animations being “amazing and the biggest yet”, so this means that just like originally in J, they made different animations depending on who your subpilot is. I’m looking forward to some Hokuto no Ken Festenia x Sir Coustwell, and unlockable Raftclans too. Also more Exexexexexbeins.  Hopefully Folka will come back too so we can finally get mecha Hokuto no Ken in HD. 2016 is cool. Looking forward to the 1st PV. Really hyped.

Betting on M.A.O. voicing Calvina, and would say Matsuoka Yoshitsugu for Touya but he already did Youta/MC in BX just now. So I guess… maybe Masuda Toshiki or Ishikawa Kaito. Ishikawa Kaito just did Sakito in the last Masoukishin too and almost every seiyuu in Masoukishin voices someone in main OG.
Then I’m betting on Uesaka Sumire for Melua, Tomatsu Haruka for Katia and Uchida Maaya for Festenia. Obvisouly lotsof PR related seiyuus since I have their names in mind these days cause of Kinpri.

SRW Tengoku hen clear

srwz3 clear top 5r

That’s the SRW game I enjoyed the most ever. All those awesome crossover moments. All those funny moments. Those nice twists and story. I’m gonna miss the Z saga. I guess part of the reason I enjoyed it so much is how it’s the first SRW where I didn’t spoil myself anything before playing it, and actually managed to read most of the dialogue myself. Though I did read Chen Gong’s summary after playing each stage. I don’t think I’ll do another playthrough since I actually used multiple saves right from my first loop, to do the parallel routes I’m interested in. If you actually read the dialogue, SRW is pretty much a really long VN with some animated gameplay sequences, and I don’t have the time to do it again. I just rewatch animations on the net.

Contain spoilers for the game’s ending and shows in the game like FMP novels or Gargantia.

SRW Z3.1 clear

 srw z3.1 clear 02srw z3.1 clear 01

Made me learn quite a lot of kanjis too. I’m surprised at how much easy some of the dialogue is to understand. There’s the typical “we fight to protect peace” speeches which are pretty much 30% of the game’s dialogue, then there’s the jokes which are pretty easy too. Near the beginning, the rugby scene from Fumoffu was even more hilarious than the original thanks to Sousuke calling Ranka a slut.
Gonna do another quick run to complete the scenario chart to get bonuses in Tengoku hen.

Also I’m not a Yukana fan. Well I do like C.C. and Tessa, and Honoka. And Rinslet. And Fujiko. And Dominura too. But it just turned out that way for some reason. C.C. was my favorite support unit. In the top ten I have something like Noriko, Four, Amuro, Crousseau, Chirico and Hibiki at around the same number of kills. I put Noin in the Wing Zero the whole game since I like her.

I was expecting more from the cast list of Z3.2, I’m pretty sad Gravion isn’t coming back. But stuff like Gargantia is nice too. I’m looking forward to some Surfing Lobster Lesbian Pirate Queen and triple Inuzama kick. And some HD Double X and Turn A. In impossible wishes I’d like Lenardo/Belial recrutable and Ledo’s classmates from the Gargantia prequel novel. Hopefully Olson and Athena are playable again too. And Mai and Riia too but that will never happen.
