Tonight is Bahari night, show marathon in Toyko. They'll be selling trinkets and have special guests.
If you could have anything for a S2 what would you want /a/?
Also did anyone else clean up in the last game event? I got 3 Yurius', 6 Galacias and 7 Lost Heros aw yes.
I want a moment where Kaisar and Rita have to pretend to be father and daughter for something
That would be beautiful. I could see Rita being able to play the kid well enough since she did in episode 3 but Kaisar either messing up or coming off as a dad under the thumb of his daughter. Could be part of an episode getting into Kaisar's childhood issues since he resented his dad before everything went to hell and seemed to not have a great relationship with him. Now Kaisar must be the dad, how will he parent?
They're both dad material. Although Favaro could probably pull off drag better. Well, he'd have to shave now.
As for the second question I have no idea. Although we do know from the commentary that Kaisar would like to be slapped a bit.
We having another Bahamut thread? I'm down for that.
Things I want to see in S2:
>more Favaro Kaisar duo bounty huntan
>more character interaction overall because the core cast is a 10/10
>more demons/gods interaction with humans, I want to see Grimnir
>less depressing things, more fun things, healing and adventure
spare for some lighthearted suffering
I agree with all of these. More character interaction is up there on my list.
I can take suffering only if we get a 100% happy end this time. don't bring in Grimnir and kill him for example. No killing the main 4. Please.
Just a bunch of Glacias, that's it. I still have gems to exchange but I'm not feeling lucky yet.
On another note I finished uploading all the Vampire Princess event and almost finished uploading the rest of Cornered Angels. Kinda relieved there's no story event this week, went too ocd on these last two.
I pretty much lucked out by being in a great brigade so we won a lot. Big rewards and killer competitions all over. First time I saw anyone using the forum too. I'm going to miss those guys.
Don't overwork yourself archiver. I'd help but now my screenshot says the thing ain't working and heck if I know how I broke it.
The event was pretty bad for me too, I got like 3 Glacias and a Yurius in the end at least. Managed to catch the colossal a grand total of 2 times, what a sucky mechanic. Here's to hoping the next one will be a little better,
it won't. ;_;
I checked the archive but duplex hasn't tripfagged in two weeks. Meh he'll encode them when he encodes them.
For S2 they could tell us more about Mistarcia and its English-named fantasy 101 places like Sword Valley and Wailing Woods and maybe what's beyond it.
>Tickets were sold out, thanks
Looks like the screening is doing well at least. Wonder how big it is. Probably not huge.
>And the shouts are possibly directed by Mann saying ' Oh. Balina-Shar-red Faldo was last property for me. It,... Once again your man! Go!, fabaroo! "For that (. / ˇ button _ ˇ button,. ) Guys that fight!
guys that fight indeed
Maybe Azazel will get his revenge. If he cares about that anymore.
The theatre it's in has 429 seats, which isn't too bad.
Not sure about the Osaka and Fukuoka ones. The Osaka ticket presale lottery just started today.
And, Satou is planning to do some audience call and response (like, Bahari MAX) at the talk show, Gou's suggestion was Kaisar's very long line he shouts after Favaro hits Barina Chal Lidfard and she runs off.
>duplex hasn't tripfagged in two weeks.
That's slightly worrying.
Are there multiple screenings a day? There's also more people buying tickets than there are seats because of the lottery system right? Sounds pretty good to me. Also going to 2ch out of curiosity google translate is telling me there are quite a few gaijin at the screenings. I wonder if some are one of us.
That's not as tiny as I'd thought. Nifty.
I'm sure we will
in a bottle
We got to last 5+ hours plus travel time at least to make it.
There needs to be more.
Maybe with proper contouring it could work. That shit is dark magic.
If only Azula had a zombie loli to slap sense into her so much would have been different.
>Bahari Nite once Screening Committee ⇒ http://amba.to/1KkPvh4 today, Comiket 87 Kaisar & Favaro again mobilized!
Just the one screening per location - it's an overnight, 11pm to 5am special screening event with a talk show.
That's what the lottery system will be used for, but at least for the Tokyo one not that many people applied, so everyone got a seat without selection going to a lottery. Osaka might be different, because the talkshow has been announced for Satou with Gou and Yoshino, the main duo's VA, so I'm expecting it will be a bit more popular.
2ch were talking recently about the viewership of the yoru no fantasy broadcasts (I think during the last one, they asked viewers to comment where they were from or something?). While I've seen a couple of others, I don't think the numbers of gaijin at the events I've been to has been that noticeable.
The Taiwan event they did seemed to be popular though.
That 3D Favaro they had was really good. I hope we'll see more of him.
Aww, so the turnout was low. So who attended the event, and did they mention anything noteworthy? What was the Taiwan event about even.
The event doesn't start for another few hours yet.
But, the talkshow is going to be Satou and Morita (Azazel's VA).
Those 2 cosplayers from comiket will also be making an appearance before the show when they are selling goods in the lobby.
The Taiwan event was a talkshow at a comiket-like event, from Gou and Han Megumi (Jeanne's VA), however I unfortunately don't know the details as neither tweeted much about them and I can't read Chinese.
Oops, my bad. I can't into timezones.
Damn they had Morita at the event and didn't even need a lottery to get in? That's kind of disappointing.
;_;Hopefully the Osaka one will do better with Hiroyuki Yoshino.
So are you at the event right now anon? If so how populated is it? I hope this thread is still alive by the time it's done so you can report back to us.
Oh, great; I'll look through it and if there's anything I capped that's missing I'll add it in. I did a screen-by-screen one of the opening and ending animations among other stuff.
Event went great for me; my brigade won all 8 days in a row and I managed to get four Yuriuses (and then realized after I evolved them that I like the picture on his level 1 card the best, but that's a pretty extravagant problem to have).
And speaking of which, the game really abandoned all pretense of subtlety with some of the character quotes in that last chapter.
Those two need to have a nice 'fight' now everything is settled.
Also they seem to be okay popular on pixiv so that's nice.
I was also surprised that Morita's appearance wasn't a bigger draw. Perhaps the fact it's an overnight thing vs a day event, but still.
I'm not at the event yet, but I'll be arriving around 10 (about 3 hours from now) when the goods sales will open. It's mostly all the things they had before, but there's a new badge set (using the twitter icon art), clearfile set and a t-shirt.
If this thread is gone by the time I get back, I'll post it whenever the next one pops up.
Jeez they really aren't pulling the punches. And thanks for archiving these, I have a habit of skipping over dialogue so it's nice I can re-read anything I've missed.
>they told me I could be anything
>so I became a cathedral
These card designs man.
Much appreciated anon!
I guess since you have to be there for 6 hours and stay up all night it might be hard to schedule the time to go.
I am still insanely jealous. Have a great time, and please take pictures anywhere you're allowed to! We want to hear all the details.
Figures this would happen after I already got the first pin and clearfile sets. I hope they put the new merch up on their website too.
Kept forgetting to mention it, but I got this a while back from Surugaya. It's not terribly exciting, since it just has this on the front and the Genesis logo on the back near the hem, plus it's way too big for me, but still pretty cool in that I'm reasonably sure it was the first piece of Baharimax merchandise ever produced (it was sold at the Comiket where they first showed the PV, and I don't think the characters were even named yet since it was just described as "heroine T-shirt".)
That's actually pretty cool, Amira looks noticeably more mature here. I wonder if they intended for Amira to be the Holy Knight in the initial planning phase? Hey, the shirt might become valuable in the event the anime becomes more popular retroactively, one can hope.
Also I'm glad to see the screening event bringing a small influx of fanart.
It's like how she is in the OP it seems. I wonder if they did. I heard somewhere they were planning it for 2 years things can change in 2 years.
Whoa, that's even more painful with the typesetting done. Excellent job!
Oh I didn't do it, I saved this off the thread. The whole thing is here https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BzF0UTMbIxP0cEVFZXFpNjc3Yzg&usp=drive_web&tid=0BzF0UTMbIxP0WW1FWFN5cHg3SFk
>Kaisar interrupting Favaro in a makeout session for FAVAROOO
Somehow it seems highly possible this has happened. Maybe that's why he didn't disturb him while he was wooing broads in the tavern, gotta have some respect even for your #1 enemy.
Or he just didn't want another awkward situation.
Bros don't interrupt bros banging hos even if they wish they were the one banging the bro instead
Wearing buildings, new fashion trend Spring 2015
I'm gonna miss these guys, and not just because of their barely-concealed lust for each other. Best event crew yet.
Just for your edification, Albert is voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa and Yurius by the guy who played Hei in Darker Than Black. Now you can imagine those voices reading their lines (at least until I figure out a way to cap the audio from the Japanese version's event archive).
>but at least for the Tokyo one not that many people applied
How do you know that? At least what twitter would make you think so far the interest has been the biggest about the Tokyo event.
I meant not that many as in the number of people applying for the presale did not exceed the number of seats there were, so the pre-sale result was not decided by lottery after all.
It seats over 400 people, so I don't consider it a small turnout. Just noting that everyone was successful on the lottery, something 2ch anons were worried about
Vol. 2 drop off
At least Cerberus is in a whole different league from Rita. Vol. 3 worries me more with 8 and 9 and seemingly no material for more card bonus pull.
IMO it's not so bad in context of just how badly anime is selling overall. If it isn't hit fujoshit like Free!, hit idolshit or madoshit, it has no right to cross 20k, period. Stuff that crosses 10k (but not by much): flavour of the season shounens like YWPD (and that is big in Japan right now); certain, but not all gundams; jojos. Not even hype stuff like Psycho Pass or KLK managed to cross the 10k line. I'd say shit sales start below 3k so Bahamut managed to fit in right into lower average. And it's nothing unexpected, if you just look around you can tell by the show's notoriety pretty accurately how much it would manage to sell. Unfortunately Bahamut was never a 10k crosser, as much was a given judging how it sometimes struggled for attention.
Either way whatever they decided to do with S2, I think that has been decided independently from the sales or at least from the stalker predictions (which have been 53% overestimated). If anything, people at cygames were looking at the amazon ranking instead which was more accurate.
I've been thinking the same. Anime character cards wouldn't be a good idea at this point, now wouldn't they. Shit, maybe a new Lucifer? A figure? I'm worried about the later volumes because I want the staffs to give their best with Vol. 4 as well.
Lucifer does appear in two out of three episodes.
Apart from the artist's compensation the cards are basically free money so I don't see why they'd hesitate to put them in in an expensive advertisement.
Favaro's vertical scar is wandering off.
>maybe a new Lucifer?
I would pledge my soul to cygames if they made a Lucifer & Azazel card, preferably vaguely homoerotic.
Implying you're not doing it wrong if you don't rough him up a healthy bit.
I really want that they make a Azalucy card that gets gayer with each evoluton
Why is this drawing so beautiful ?
The most beautiful thing i found on Pixiv in the Bahamut Tag
I know right? It's so endearing.
Oh yeah it was his birthday too. What a pleasant surprise.
While the sales were kind of disappointing it's really not unexpected for a show with basically 0 otaku appeal. Rita is not loliconbait, Amira is not moe in the sexualizable sense and fujoshi shows are taking all the fujobucks.
Cheers. Opening and Ending is all that was needed for the the last event, thank you.
I like how I'm able to recognize a lot more characters in the Bahamut tag on pivix thanks to the game.
Certainly didn't expect to find Noah and Rosaria Lewds though
Well here it is, they've feasted upon Favaro's severed head apparently.
Did they absolutely have to make it so 3D
Would take home and put a hat on.
Fallen Angel Brother's Card. Azazel finally gets to be with his boss, in card form.
What is this, a cake for Gilles?
You can evolve them as they Fall
into each other's arms.
Candy for Gilles.
We can't free him now he has become cake, the cgi dragon told me so. We have to kill him, Kaisar, he's suffered enough.
Bahari without pomp and fro would be woe-some but it's the depressing truth the hair put people off. I've had people say flat out they won't watch because of the hair.
What is wrong with the world today
Saying elevens have shit taste is a bit of a meme... but well, elevens have shit taste. To be fair, a vast chunk of western weeb shits do too. It seems most modern anime viewers don't want something fresh, they just want more of the same generic bullshit.
Cakes that look like characters/people are so fucking freaky. I feel a strange combo of terror while looking at them combined with guilt as I carve into their faces.
Back from the event, here are some details:
-For the goods sales, they had lifesize cutouts of Kaisar and Favaro on display.
-The entry bonus was a postcard of Favaro's ass. I'm wondering if it will be the same or different for the Osaka and Fukuoka showings
-They also announced (though not officially, so I guess it is subject to change) the guests for Fukuoka would be Satou, Gou, Yoshino and Tsuda Kenjirou
-The cosplayers from comiket made an appearance, and were posing for photos before the theatre opened for entry.
-Yoshino was indeed an unannounced guest, and there was a cake for his birthday >>120918338
-It started off with an intro from the cygames guy, who looked awfully familiar, I think he's the one from yoru no fantasy.
-He introduced Morita, who came out on stage, but was followed by a mysterious figure wearing Satou's hat and glasses with eyes printed on them. So Morita introduced "Director Satou Keiichi" and asked him a few questions ("Why are you wearing those glasses?" "The spotlights are really bright!")
-While they were taking, the real Satou came out, carrying the cake on the large tray, and Yoshino took off the hat and glasses. Everyone applauded and Morita congratulated Yoshino on his birthday, and joked that's why everyone was there, that we all had gathered to celebrate for for his birthday. They continued talking until Satou looking like he was struggling with/about to drop the cake, so the staff rushed over a table to put it on and some chairs for them.
Oops, hit the character limit, will continue in anther post
-At the end, they were joking about Morita singing the ED, so he suggested they should sing it all 3 of them as a chorus. For the end, Satou shouted "This evening too" for the audience response of "Bahari MAX", and they started to leave. And Morita started singing.
-As he was walking to the door, I thought he was just going to do a couple of lines, but he sung all the way to the end of the first chorus. Even did a twirl around and put his foot up on the chair to emphasise parts of the song. The audience clapped along.
-For some reason, the cygames guy seemed to want him to finish and leave quickly (I could see him gesturing and waving his arms around near the end of stage). Perhaps Morita's outburst of song was not entirely planned then?
-It was pretty excellent though, hopefully it turns up as an extra somewhere.
The following bits from the talkshow, not in any particular order:
-Satou asked generally what people liked about the show. Morita then went over with the microphone to the audience members to collect their answers. He introduced himself to the shocked audience member as "Aza-san". The first response was from someone who liked the high quality of the visuals.
-The second response, to what they liked was "lips". When asked whose lips they liked best, they answered Favaro's.
-They were asking if people had bought certain things as it was an all night showing, such as a neck pillow, and one person held one up. Others also had blankets and so on. Yoshino interjected that people shouldn't be going to sleep!
-Lots of teasing Gou. Talking about how he sighs when confused. The Osaka event is just going to be Satou, Yoshino and Gou, so Yoshino was saying he was going to leave being the MC to Gou, but would that be okay? They were all joking that we should all tweet encouragement to Gou to put the pressure on, because it will make him worry.
-Yoshino calls him Gou-chan, but the others use Gou-kun.
If I see reports/remember, I'll add more.
10/10 would consume a baby cake with Gilles.
Morita just needs to sing no company can contain his music
>When asked whose lips they liked best, they answered Favaro's.
The event sound adorable and fun. Thanks for the report!
But he did give us angry Kaisar struggling with his hair down
Like clockwork. There is no need to be bitter, anon.
Maybe it is Aryan Knight typing from the grave
Gaurin would never stoop so low as to call Lavalley "shit" even in death, where he knows Lavalley is the one who killed him. He would call him something more like a miserable wretch, or a deceiving cur.
Not like he was the only one who could have done it.
Being a character fag is fine and all, but learn to distinguish shit characters from good ones. All this faggot has going for him are his looks, his contributions to this show limit to:
- looking handsome on still shots
- selling red herring bullshit which led to nowhere
- being a bland and devoid of personality stand it
- being a detached and weakly motivated villain
He is shit, he is vapid, he isn't even an actual character. I bet you are very attached to the air you're breathing too.
Sounds like those people specifically coming for Morita definitely got worth their money. Damn you did pay 5k to hear him sing but I hope the rest of us get to eventually. What was seeing the last episode on the big screen like?
Damn Yoshino looks fine for forty, I see those nip genes are in effect.
The amount of detail put into his neck and teeth and everything overall is slightly unsettling.
Objectively correct. It's good to know nips having good taste. And thanks for the rundown anon, it sounds like you had a lot of fun. Azazel ED version when?
He also set the whole plan into motion, but hey, if you feel convinced that you have shown me the light, then feel free to think that way.
All that comes off as is one big "stop liking what I don't like" post to me.
Being a cardboard plot device that could've been filled by literally any demon realm rando doesn't mean much, but hey, eat up your crap. Bon appetit.
There's a reason why guys like him get killed off first in standard ensemble fantasy cast. He takes up space that could've been used for better things, just like his pointless am-I-or-am-I-not-Amira's-dad play which lasted two episodes too long.
I really dig how they did the afro, it looks so fluffy and detailed. Makes me wonder why they were lazy with his scar, they could've used a different colored fondant.
Thanks for sharing the details anon. I'm pleased to hear people liked the lips in the show, it certainly helped make characters stand out. It worries me that the Cygames guy didn't seem really into the event though.
>We need HOW many Hallowed Diamonds?
>Kaisar, this is the only way to free Amira!
>Then we must grind!
>Damn Yoshino looks fine for forty, I see those nip genes are in effect.
When you think about it, middle-aged japanese men are the foundation of everything we love.
>not wanting buddy-cop bounty hunting hijinks with the plot of Saving Lady Amira
W-well fuck you too.
What if S2 takes place 100 years after S1 and the one who gets to save lady Amira is Favaro's great grandson who looks exactly like him while Kaisar with his entire kin are dead because he never scored?
>Kaisar with his entire kin are dead because he never scored?
It's not like he never scored, he's just shooting at the wrong goalpost.
S2: Favaro tries to get Kaisar married so the Lidfard lines doesn't die. Turns out there's a cousin so it doesn't matter anyway. Kaisar never realises what has been happening.
I've seen the fanart
and tentaclefic, it exists.
Oh, and I don't know how to put text into the googledrive here a pastebin of a translation translator anon did of more sufering Kaisar http://pastebin.com/GBGV9Crb
