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.

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.

4th season of Pretty Rhythm announced: Pretty Rhythm All Star Selection

EDIT FROM THE FUTURE: Turned out it was just a recap season, so disappointing. Left the post as is for conservation sake.

Turns out we were right to expect news about it now. Just like every year since the anime started, they announced the new season at the end of January. It’ll start the 5th of April. This means just like the previous seasons, Rainbow Live is 51 episodes.

The new season is titled “Pretty Rhythm All Star Selection” and is a crossover between the three first seasons.

That explains why the movie is a compilation with all the characters. The movie is titled “Pretty Rhythm All Star Selection Prism Show☆Best Ten”, it’s getting released in March, one month before the new season. It’s all part of the same “All Star” project, and the movie’s purpose is to introduce the previous characters to those who haven’t seen Aurora Dream and/or Dear My Future. The movie is the golden hoe that will till the land of little girls to sow the 4th season. The movie’s official site is here. Only info about the movie’s staff now is that it’s Tatsunoko like always and that Akao Deko is doing the script.

And here I was getting all sad, thinking I’d have to say goodbye to all the Rainbow Live characters. If it’s really an actual crossover like I want, my hype is never ending. Wasn’t sure whether I’d blog the new season but now I’ll blog it for sure. Am I finally getting my main character piloting a skating dimension sliding mecha, meeting all the characters from the previous seasons, and fighting final boss Akai Meganee in a Qubeley using Prism Stones as funnels?!?

The new heroine you can see in the first picutre is pretty much Creamy Mamy but with twintails. She even got the mic too. I really like Creamy Mami, saw some of it when I was a kid, and saw a few episodes here and there since then. It’s one of those shows I’m planning to watch properly from beginning to end.

Anyway, I already like the new heroine thanks to that. I remember back when Rainbow Live was announced,  the director said it’ll be his last Pretty Rhythm season, after which he’ll be “graduating” from it, and for that reason he and the staff would try to make Rainbow Live the best season ever. Time sure flies.
And well about that, I love Rainbow Live, but I don’t think they managed to pull it off so far. Maybe the last few episodes will make me change my mind. In any case the first half of the show wasn’t better than the first half of Dear My Future. It was great and almost as good sometimes, but not better. As of Rainbow Live’s 2nd half, it has been stuck in this “almost as good” state and only had a few instances ( like episode 32) of “just as good as DMF”. We should see how the ending turns out soon and I still have high expectations for the last cour, so I still think they can pull it off.

Starting April they’ll update the arcade game with the “All Star Selection” stuff and they’ll also launch a new “Pretty Rhythm All Star Selection” manga in Puchigumi magazine.

There’s gonna be info about the staff of the new season sometime later I guess. Like I already said the director isn’t staying. I have no idea about the rest of the staff. I hope the whole CG team stays. If so we’ll get to see Aurora Dream’s Prism Jumps and Dear My Future’s Prism Acts with the CG quality of Rainbow Live. The staff on twitter, director included, haven’t said anything yet about the announcement.
