Time to test the early waters
If you're the bro with the PS2 EL CG's, post away. I've been waiting all week
Too bad we're the only ones here.
WoW haven't seen this series in years, feels good
Gonna have to rewatch the series its been so long, nostalgia hype
Getting to the cgs I remember posting from last thread, but gonna repost them anyway for any newcomers to the thread.
There should be 1 more new one that I didn't have unlocked from last week.
I remember unlocking those after
Wein hijacks Unit #7.
After playing through EL again, I also realized there's not a whole lot of segments that let you wander the Elsior.
I thank you for your work anon. We should make a zip/rar file.
If only more people were here. Thank you again.
Galaxy Angel 2 (with the new cast, not the original series) was shit. I mean, fuck, I played through both the first and second before giving up on the third. The only satisfying part was when
MC got shot dead in the first game in Nano's route.That shit was so cash.
Wasn't expecting a thread so early.
The sounds she makes on this scene, man.
I'm mostly relying on the voice acting to understand the games. Had to do a triple take for this one.
Oh shit, we got people for discussion now.
I don't think anyone is going to deny that GAII Rune was terrible. Because it was.
Gamewise, I still thoroughly enjoyed the GAII series. That said, there were still issues that took some of that enjoyment out.
I already mentioned in a couple threads back that all the Emblem Frames feeling the same felt lazy and disappointing.
Plenty of the battles in GAII are also pretty lackluster, emphasized mostly by Mugen Kairou.
And after playing the ps2 ver of the original series, the streamlined controls are also an issue for me. Can't exactly describe it, but it feels a lot less tactical.
Rune the anime was without a doubt, horrendous.
The games were fine for me. Yes Kazuya is nowhere near as fun as Tact was but going into the 2nd series with only the intent in seeing the reunion scenes, I saw a glint of charm in the new crew.
In the back of my head, I still had no expectations and enjoyed what I got. Fights were boring but that seems to be a thing for the 2nd game's in both the original and 2nd series.
I think breaking off from the original crew had a lot to do with it but I still enjoyed the hell out of the games cause they didn't shoot themselves in the foot and wrote out the old crew
I watched rune long before playing the games.
Surely it wasn't as good as the original, but I really don't remember it being as terrible as everyone claims, I think I even found it enjoyable.
Is it just a matter of people being disappointed by the expectations set by the original, or did I just forget it being terrible?
It's not so much the characters as the level of writing and the structure of the game's "route" system, particularly the 2nd game. Regardless of the heroine you picked, each chapter is pretty much a story focusing on one of the main girls in the crew, so it became a bit of a slog when you're going through a girl's life story that you don't care much about at the moment while wondering if picking a heroine at the beginning actually did anything. Fine for the first game so each girl is open game at the moment, not so much in the 2nd game.
Not going into too much details since people have yet to play the game, but plot hijacking happens with a newly introduced character as well.
There were also some art shifts along the way, generally for the better, but it's like Nano keeps de-aging with each passing game. The original cast looks atrocious in the third game though. Dunno what happened there.
Well so much for discussion, it's just the three of us again
you know what it means?
I remember a lot of my dislike being that it was made by a different studio who tried to emulate the previous seasons too much, but it ended up making everything feel too forced.
I might torture myself and give Rune a rewatch to see if I'll still hold onto that assessment.
I watched it again just to hear the Rune VA's, they weren't all that bad. Rico's idiocy in the anime is sort of annoying.
It was pretty atrocious while the new crew look great.
Sometimes I feel like rewatching it now that I'm more familiar with the series and have played some of the GAII games, but I'm probably better off remembering it as not being shit.
As random as the "plots" of GA episodes were, the situations they got themselves in Rune seemed to come out of left field more than half the time. I guess that's what I mean when I said it felt forced.
That said, I would like to give it a rewatch at some point to see if my opinion is any different now.
Lily best GAII all day, every day.
Get to her route conflict (if you're the anon currently playing through it).
I know for a fact that Rico's VA is still around doing stuff while Nano's VA seems to have hit it off with Akame Ga Kill. Aya Hirano is still around so all that's left is Anise and Natsume. Somewhat sad since I really liked Anise's voice
I remember the GA one and the Love Hina one.
Man, Love Hina was shit. Love Hina's MC was a fucking doormat and I can say that I liked Kazuya more
Posting more scavenged arts from the depths of pixiv
I never would have expected it.
She's not my favorite Rune but I'm happy for her success. Sales might not be great but at least she's getting a fanbase
I'd like to see Gary Stu's get unintentionally blown the fuck out by Milfie's luck
I read the GA I manga and didn't like it as much as I thought I would. I don't even think the GA II manga are even properly scanlated.
She's okay, just a bit too normal compared to literally everyone else
In this era, we'll at least get Ranpha's glorious midriff back
Remembering it now, I'm angry didn't they give that scene a CG
I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, in much the same way I did with Milfie. You know, simple, innocent, romance. Just wish she'd lose the puffy shoulders. Thankfully her art got improved in the second game.
She's cute, no doubts about that. I just seemed to gravitate toward Anise since I honestly never had the chance for a straight tomboy character in games like these
So if they were to use the game cast in the anime series, this guy would be played by Camus, right?
I wonder how those 5 even met with each other.
I like to think Forte's hat used to be Volcott's
I can see Camus and Guinness being buddies prior to joining up with Eonia.
Riserva probably just forced her way into the group with money to fight Mint.
Red Eye seems like your typical mercenary for hire.
Vermouth... I can't think of anything.
More art for the folder, thank you anon. I would share some GA II art but the ones I grabbed from Minitokyo are pretty big
Also excuse the shitty MS Paint copy paste quality
Just make a new game that includes what-if scenarios, one of which would be somehow saving the Hell Hounds. By using White Moon magic/technology.
Btw, as you can tell I don't really care much for Vermouth. Amazingly, he somehow seems to have even less characterization than Red Eye imo.
If we're adding Hell Hounds, the this guy wouldn't hurt either.
I don't even care if they're phone quality. I would like to request that you upload what you can.
Off to do some business.
I expect to see the thread alive in a bit
Drawfriends are cool sometimes
My business is being delayed but there's always the rest of this weekend
That only leaves Angels II for our completion
Is Tinyupload an acceptable place to host some files?
Just got done with the second episode of S2. The giantessfags would have been happy with that one. Also, Mint can make any costume look good it would seem, even ugly Snake Cavemen.
I've found myself with a little spare time on my hands and I'm going to reorganize that GA music collection.
My plans so far are to split any CD images (I've already done a couple), convert any lossless files into FLAC since it is the most widely supported lossless audio, make a more standardized directory for the entire collection, and hopefully find out what album all those unknown tracks come from.
I'm considering translating the songs and folders with japanese filenames with the help of my friend as well, since my knowledge of runes is rudimentary. Should we even bother doing this, or would no one give a shit?
I've always found mediafire to be the most unobtrusive and convenient filehost. MEGA is decent as well.
I knew of it before I knew of GA, but I never personally played it. I did two seconds of it a couple of threads ago and I dropped it after seeing the shitty spelling and the out of character cursing.
I only learned what a tsuchinoko was until I played Snake Eater.
mf loves to comply to phony copyright claims, though.
I do not know if they already covered it in the first anime, but I would like them to make fun of the "Everything fucking happens in high school" idea seemingly so popular with anime in general.
Milfie is a big girl.
Normally I'd either leave everything untranslated, or change everything. But since this compilation has releases from multiple groups,some translated, some not, I'm kind of conflicted. I guess I'll just leave that for last since at the very least I just want everything to be organized.
I do not. However, depending on how the games are structured it might be possible to extract from the disc image. If the music files are behind some proprietary filetype that hasn't been reverse engineered by someone, there's nothing that can be done though. I've been wanting to at least have the game iso ready for when I decide to play GAII, so I'll check it out when I can.
This is true. Though, with GA being so forgotten, it might not matter.
I've tried looking into the isos with some tools I found after some superficial googling, to no success. Then again, I have no experience with this sort of thing, so it might still be possible.
Oh yeah, speaking of things.
Does anyone have vectors, or at least high resolution images of the moon angel and rune angel logos/whatever it is you call them?
I think Rico's just look perkier. Their breasts seem to be the same size because Rico's hand and Milfie's arm are covering a little bit of her chest. Milfie is a bit bigger, but Rico actually has fairly big breasts too.
>14 years old
If anything, they look about the same size in that picture. However, it isn't uncommon for younger siblings to end up taller, or in Rico's case, more stacked than her older sister.
Speaking of which, do we have any official measurements for all the girls?
I want to tatto this shit, but I`m a little fat.
The good thing about getting a tattoo of this is that hardly anyone would know where it's from or that it's even anime related. If you're into that whole hiding your power level thing that is.
I wouldn't be ashamed of showing my love for GA. It's a bitching design anyway
>There already a big discussion going on.
Am I late to the party?
Damn, I forgot Milfy's Emblem Frame.
So anyone remember this episode? I like to think Volcott was on the same team as the angels' grandparents and is now looking after their granddaughters, which would explain why he seems so willing to put up with all the shit they cause. In Milfie's case, her mom.
Thinking about this further, could Volcott really be Milfie's dad, as mentioned in the soap opera episode? Ignoring the mandatory twist ending, that is.
Reminds me I still need to beat Vanilla's ending in EL. Kinda regret choosing Chitose for the one and only time I beat that game...
I don't know why, but I've never picked up Patlabor
despite being a /m/an for years. What would Patlabor's style mean for GA?
You know what show's style I could absolutely see working for GA though? Nadesico. Comedic and crazy one moment, serious and dramatic the next, often in the same episode. Ruri and Vanilla would probably make good friends.
-Hundreds of years after the devastation of the Chrono Quake, stability soon returned as space-travel slowly recovered. For the planet Transbaal, it enjoyed a relatively quite time aside from fighting against various space pirates. However, all that changed with the arrival of the White Moon and meeting with the one who would soon to became known as the Moon Goddess, Shatoyan.
25-year old Ryon Merlot, Captain of 5th Fleet of the Transbaal Space Patrol job is pretty much an uneventful life aside from the occasional space pirate attacks. His duty consists of making sure his fleet and his crew are up to tip-top-shape and performing the many tasks that are assigned to him by HQ such as escorting trade ships and diplomats.
One day, he gets word that an new all female squadron of Transbaal Fighter pilots will be assigned to him and it is his job to train them well, however over the course of their jobs they will discover events that will change the history of the Galaxy.
Gameplay: There are two phases: Work Phase, Rest Phase and Battle Phase
As a Captain, you will make use of your crew to assign them jobs that range from finding lost pets, deliver supplies ranging from beer and pizza to important lost technology and to investigating various cases.
The rest phase allows you to see the social events that happen between your crew.
Both of the Phases allow you to interact with the crew and increases relationship and morale points.
Thanks. I'll keep this in mind. Its gonna be quite interesting.
So to the other two anons that are still around, considering that Broccoli is probably never going to revisit GA again, have you ever thought of how a GA3 would play out if you were in charge of making it?
If the thread is pretty much over now, I'll save this question for next thread when there's more people around. Then again, not many have played the games, let alone the 2nd series.
OP is always here.
Real tough question to answer. Lots of factors to consider with all the characters, Emblem Frames, and enemies.
Hell, I don't even think we can outscale the stakes compared to the final game
I don't think the stakes need to be on such a large scale for a compelling plot.
I've had some ideas floating around, but I don't want to steal any thunder from the anon with the prequel ideas.
Also, fuck impossible captchas
The only problem with branching plots is that it all has to end up in the same spot assuming the game would be structured as another trilogy.
A stand alone game, or final game in the series would work, but it'd be a mess otherwise.
Also, concerning Forte's past.
Its been said that she lived in a planet devastated by the Chrono Quake and that her little sister and friends were shot and killed after they were caught stealing food.
That is why she's obsessed with guns, so she can protect her friends.
Adding to this.
-The Other Moon Angel troupe are still children by this time as well as Eonia and Sherry.
-Gerald and Shatoyan are very much best friends but soon that will turn into a relationship.
-Tact and Lester are young adolescents.
-Volcutt is your second in command, with an adopted daughter named Forte Stollen.
I hear that motherfucker has a laser beneath the eyepatch
Pretty much I'd like to see his interactions with his followers, thoughts, etc.
His methods were flawed and extreme, but he probably really did care about the well-being of the empire.
It's funny that had Transbaal known about the Valfask, Eonia probably would've gotten a lot more support.
Other than another pretty boy in GA II, he's the only developed villain we got. Dude was sad when he lost Sherry
Take a trip down memory lane and see the commercials they aired for the games
I definitely remember hearing Endless Prelude in the final game but never knew it was apparently from EL
I doubt he was thinking of the well being of the empire when he was willing to use a weapon of mass destruction on innocent civilians.
The exile might have drive him quite crazy.
I believe had GA games been released in English, it would have reduced the losses cause by the GA Rune anime. or at least prolonged its life span long enough for the GA2 games to be released in English.
It would have been a different age if GA was still relevant.
It's not much different from the US using nukes against Japan. As someone else mentioned, Eonia has some depth to his character, but it's never fully explored.
How the hell did you get the Elsior that low?
We've lost steam since this threads been at it for a good few hours and I'm happy with what I got.
Like always, we'll continue through the weekend and hopefully attract the anime-friends too. I'll stick around as always but as I always do, thanks for stopping by.
Let's discuss music next time.
Why do I consider this Forte's best song?
I like this one. Forte's song always have the sexiest intros with those instruments
Weird. Forte never performs well enough to leave alone on my playthroughs even if I boost her mood, unless I'm going through her route.
Even weirder, it's the complete opposite in ML where Forte is one of my top scorers and I can let her wreck whatever she wants even outside of her route.
Time to see if Imgur can handle the entire anime screenshot folder
Well. This is an interesting piece of info.
>in conspiracy with Emperor Gerald, in TCY 407 he incited Eonia to revolt, but when the fighting began, immediately betrayed Eonia and led him into a trap.
I never thought this guy would have a much deeper involvement with the plot.
Aaaand not even that seems to be working properly
A true hero
Apparently, Kazuya's Solo Route in the MK's 2nd disc is absolutely hilarious
Going down with the ship seems to be a bad habit for both Rezom and Sherry.
If you trust Ebay, they're actually pretty cheap.I think PS2 games include multiple discs so I don't think Disc 2 was an extra feature that needed to be purchased seperately
I should get around to getting the artbooks too
>I think PS2 games include multiple discs so I don't think Disc 2
Yeah, some PS2 games do come with extra discs. SMT Nocturne had a 2nd bonus disc for first edition copies, and Star Ocean Till the End of Time had fucking 3 discs standard.
It's nice to see pixiv remember the series. A small comic just got put up.
Val-Fasq bro loves dat Coco
Just in case you have forgot, PS2 is also region locked, so you'd need a Japanese PS2 as well. Or if you have soldering skills, a modchip for a non-japanese console. If they still even make the damn things.
Well there goes that plan. According to a source, Kazuya ends up with nobody to set up for Natsume's route and gives the vacation to ticket to the girls while he stays on the Luxiole during break.
Then cafe girl Melva decides to put Kazuya's feminine looks to work
OP here and it's nearly 5 AM. I think I'll call it quits for tonight and we'll hopefully have a nice discussion later in the afternoon. I will try and get ZRnT's CG up later on.
I avoid written fanfic like the fucking plague.
I love seeing cute pairing images though even if they were never hinted at in the show though, so I guess that counts.
