Third for marrying Aoi Yuuki and growing old together.
I swear you people are doing these typos on purpose
I get that part, but why didn't the machine shut down like it normally does when it says "Battle Ended."
There is not such thing as enough DESS
Well I have me some drinks ready, some sushi too playlist is set, Symphobattle Desing Working time, how are you /sgg/ spending the Evening so far?
Barely clearing this game on Normal. Next is Hard, then all the bosses on Special difficulty.
The aspect ratio changing for the final boss in the extra stage was neat.
This one. Dunno if it's good, but it apparently got updates, and I like me some alternate outfits, combat rape, corruption, pregnancy, and adventuring in my h-games.
He's taken a turn in difficulty and is hard for different reasons now, but I'd say he's just as hard in 4U. And the best weapons are locked behind his absolute hardest form.
>I'm guessing you took my suggestion and used beam spam to solve that problem?
Turtled with a GL and just poked the Rajang to death after it was done killing the Zinogre. Shagaru was easy enough after that.
you don't NEED Caravaneer's Challenge to get the pigment
I have 4U but haven't played much since most of my friends jumped into other games too fast before we could make some decent progress also been busy with other stuff too my Lance and Heavy-Bowgun are accumulating rust along with my skills.
need to revive my Freedom Unite days with 4U or when X comes out but meanwhile its design time.
The garterbelt certainly improves the look
yeah both Maria and Chris seem to have a soft spot for that kind of thing, Chris has a liking for ribbons and laces too
I'm confident Maria and Chris sleepwear are not for the faint of heart
It's the quest the whole game was leading towards.
>I'm confident Maria and Chris sleepwear are not for the faint of heart
Whoever marries one of those two dies that very night from either blood loss via the nasal cavity, or from their pelvises being crushed into powder.
>Maria and Chris sleepwear are not for the faint of heart
Sorry but Chris is pure and puritan in her sleepwear.
>Bare shoulders and a nice view of the zenbus
It's the same in the show dude, it's only a bit lower on the daki but it's still off the shoulders
But yeah the daki is amazing
To anyone who's received their daki and are enjoying it, I congratulate you and wish you the best.
Not to put a damper on things, but I once had a daki of my waifu once, and the first morning after I woke up with it so close to my face, I was so happy for a second, then despair came crashing because I knew I'd never have the real thing. Her face, her expression, her posture, they'd always be locked in the same state. I remember taking a day off work because I couldn't stop crying.
I suppose it's partly due to my very potent imagination. I can visualize any character I've seen doing anything I want, which helps immensely for stress relief or fapping (I never need any fap material). I can do this with sounds too. My favorite is Nana singing Daybreak's Bell, suggested by an anon here on /sgg/ a few months ago.
If only Kirika could get half a rack the size of Yomis.
>the first morning after I woke up with it so close to my face, I was so happy for a second, then despair came crashing because I knew I'd never have the real thing.
Took me more than a day, but I've been through the same thing. I think it happens with everyone.
>then despair came crashing because I knew I'd never have the real thing.
It's a surrogate. You treat it like your waifu, you treat it like you're sleeping with her, and it eventually becomes easier to keep the illusion when you wake up. It's very comforting once you have your own sort of system down for it.
This game has a SHITTON of clothes and hairstyles.
Your favorite geah needs to adopt a new hairstyle and favorite color. What do you pick for them?
>>13729763I think Kirika its not that badly equipped, its juts that Maria and Chris are too well equipped
You know that there is only 1 rope of distance from your waifu right?
I guess if she HAD to change anything then having her hair down would probably look nice
She should keep the red though
So, when's the next roll20?
So far the only bit of SB I've experienced was that useless-moetastic boss fight with Andrew.
>late game Gollop Chamber stage
>not decking literally all your troops with Titans and Archangels
I can't wait for you to die.
Gotta increase those shares one way or another
Why do residents of Gamindustri only believe in one goddess when all four goddesses make public appearances and anyone can go see them whenever? There's plenty of evidence that all four are real and active, it seems silly that they'd only believe in one. Or have i misunderstood it and it's more a case of who citizens pledge allegiance to than actually choosing to believe in one over the other?
I've seen a couple images of Kanade with her hair in a single, fluffy ponytail I like. Hair down is superior, but the one pony isn't bad.
As for color, no idea.
It works on the traditional Japanese god system where more faith = more power. Even if they know you exist, if you just bum around in your tower doing jack shit to help people they will stop having faith in the you, your power diminishes.
Oh, alright. That makes sense.
Honestly? I like all of them. I'm only on the first game and only know White, Green, Purple, and Black, but all of them are likable characters with enjoyable qualities that make their interactions fun. I don't think I could choose just one to worship. Is there some weird cult where you can worship all the goddesses?
The potato chips with the flavor that Nana herself made has been finished. The content of the bag Nana holds in her ant sized picture is still a secret, but I fucking bet its curry.
To those that doesn't know what the fuck Nana is talking about, she has collaborated with Calbee (known brand for potato chips in Japan) several times. There was also an incident of a Nanafan before that bought 458 pounds of potato chips only to get the codes for the special backstage passes to Nana's live.
Back ago there was a collab too that you can get a life-sized sticker of Nana if you buy chips and win the prize inside.
This time, the collab is if you buy some selected flavor of chips you can get a factory tour and get a taste of the potato chips they're currently doing (the chips where Nana is going to decide the flavor).
>citizens pledge allegiance
>all four goddesses make public appearances
>There's plenty of evidence that all four are real and active
First, Most people only know the Goddess in their transformed form, only some people know their human form, which is what their use for most activities. And if they really want to be in incognito they use glasses like Kirika, Shirabe or Clark Kent
In Rebirth1 you have examples of it, like the Basilicom pedophile in Planeptune doesn't recognize Neptune or Ganache refusing to admit Blanc is White Heart
>When two of them play videogames all day and one reads and writes fanfcition
>Tsubasa will never hug you while sleeping
>Wanting to be hugged by cold steel when you could get a hug from fluffy zenbus
>not wanting a fluffy wing to hug you
Chris is okay too, though.
I wish they showed more interactions between Tsubasa and Chris.
I wonder if Tsubasa still remembers that Chris stomped her head and she almost killed her back then.
does not care for nonsensical table manners and its not afraid to have food on her face.
She invites her friends for dinner and even offers to pay dinner.
has non-strict eating schedules
allows others to use her home for parties and reunions.
adopts 2 kids even when they are know LiNKER users.
best heavy fire support
has stylish red geah and red clothes
has an actual superhero name
Her own Spinoff series when?
I wish I lived in whatever blissful state of ignorance you exist in
I think we can agree that there was one good part of the 2nd half of GX
Not him, but it's called something along the lines of "I still love Symphogear and I'm not an irrational overreacting baby feeling betrayed to the point where I have to willfully ignore everything good about it so I can shit on it as though it killed my family"
Chris actually hit something with Red Hot Blaze too
The last episode was fine besides some potentially better pacing, the Glorious Break to Exterminate transition was superb, and the only thing that was sour was the topdad bullshit. Other than that it ended great.
A lot of people didn't like how the show went down after episode 6, stop being a defensive faggot over people not sharing your opinion
>"Hey honey, do you mind if I take those things for a spin? It's been a while."
>"Get away from me, you monster."
>"Ok, let me go grab Hibiki and she what she has to say about her mom not wanting to be lovey dovey with her dad."
>"...Just hurry up."
I honestly feel bad for Hibiki's mom. Her situation is sickening.
And you're an idiot for getting mad over people disliking a series of events that went against a lot of themes that were handled better in earlier seasons and earlier works by the same writer.
I enjoyed this scene.
I'm never going to live that one down, am I?
You're the one who called people irrational for not liking the end of Symphogear just because it's Symphogear
Don't start shit if you're going to pussy out the moment someone disagrees with you
And the lackluster fight that is more of a long discussion than an action scene, that tosses stuff out that has no purpose like random dragon transformation and dumb attacks that are too silly even for Symphogear.
And the lack of any new songs.
And the final attack being a watered-down version of Vitalization instead of anything unique.
And Hibiki crying about the one person she couldn't save instead of the millions that died because of that one person.
>If we get Ver's AI as an A.I, surely. Even if that is not the case, we are probably going to get some flashback that everyone will say was the best episode of S4
And the other girls suddenly joining in on Hibiki's retardation and pretending that Carol was just misguided and deserved help
And Genjuro and Oogawa not doing anything.
And topdad talking like he had any place sharing his opinions.
And the fact that they didn't even really beat Carol, but her dad's memories showed up and made her explode.
And the fact that fucking Miku wasn't even in the epilogue.
I hope this gets a purple version at wonfes.
Can we get some of the geahs actually in their gears instead?
Only the original 3 have nendos. Which are the only ones that matter. Get those.The series hasnt got any good figures except bunny chris.
The rest of the merch is in waifufag goods like dakis and mousepads.
But she did get one. I'd post the high res art from it but it's too big for 4chan
At least they got her and Chris facing the right ways on the lewd sides of the daki this time
although every side of Chris is the best side
I've only seen her noppaipad. But she got a shiripad too?
What the fuck was the point of Miku's piano playing scene(s)?
Carol was a girl who hated the world for what they did to her father, and had nobody to help her through her suffering. It could have been played better, but I agree with >>13730371
If the redemption aspect of GX focused on Carol, and cut topdad out, it would have ended way better than it did.
She's been an integral part of Hibiki's characterization, and some of the best moments of the series have involved her being spurred to action, or Hibiki on her behalf. Have you watched S1 and G and do you truly understand them?
And Hibiki was an idiot.
Carol was a girl whose father died hundreds of years ago because of some religious zealots. Despite her father having tried to save them, and being a man of medicine, science and peace, she decided that his last words "Go learn of the world" meant to dissect it and kill everyone. Despite being a genius and living for several lifetimes, having a chance to witness humanity from life to death through several cycles, and even see how different civilizations work, she was still unable to feel remorse or reflect on her actions or realize that what she was doing was wrong and that the people she was killing weren't responsible for her father's death. She killed thousands and thousands of innocent people in the name of what? Revenge? The people who she wanted revenge against were gone, and she had literally centuries to realize this. Carol was a piece of shit and deserved to die a horrible death.
Good job ignoring all the other responses.
Just because it's an opinion doesn't make you immune to being argued against or mocked for it
Chris' past was a thousand times worse than Carol and she got over her misguided anger in like a week. Carol was a bitter angry cunt for centuries. Don't even try to compare her characterization to the fucking mess of wasted potential that Carol was.
You're a cretin.
Wanted to do the Celestial Being plan of "beat up anyone who starts shit"
Wanted to unite humanity under a common tongue and fuck God
Wanted to save the world even if they need to do morally gray things
Wanted to destroy the world just to see what happens
Are you serious in trying to say those are anywhere near the same goals or motivations?
>bitter angry cunt for centuries
You could be talking about Fine here, and the same thing happened with her. Your expectations are out of line with this series, and there's plenty of edgy shit that you could turn to instead.
>Wanted to destroy the world just to see what happens
She was warped as a child because of her father dying, and wanted to understand the world in the best way she knew how. By dissecting it and understanding its core components.
Did I say anything about Fine? And Fine wasn't trying to destroy the world with no regard for what happened after because her daddy died. She wanted to break the curse of babel so she could fuck God again, which would have the side effect of killing a lot of people and give her world domination. She had an actual goal. Not an absurdly overblown plan for revenge against people who died centuries ago.
Fine's plan was the definition of absurd, anon. Fine was literally insane and she wanted to crash the moon into the earth, and Hibiki was going to sacrifice herself after she let her begin her last-ditch plan.
And Fine's plan had an end goal, she'd kill a lot of people and rule the world and bang her ex again. Carol wanted to destroy the world as the end result of a 500 year temper tantrum. Are you so blind that you can't see how one the first plan makes more sense than the later?
Bring an actual argument next time. Where the fuck are you people even coming from today?
No, I seriously don't. Their motives are both deluded and severely harmful to the world at large, but that didn't matter to Hibiki. This was a consistent part of her character that persisted into GX, despite its many other failings. It could have been elaborated on better and more time should have been spent to make Carol a better character, but it doesn't reflect poorly on Hibiki.
Mom sacrificed herself to make sure that Fine's last act didn't destroy the Earth, and wasn't that shuttle in ep1 of GX somehow due to the moon being weird? Or am I mistaken? Either way, the Mom and FIS thing shows that they were still dealing with the consequences of not executing Fine with extreme prejudice. It's an idealistic series.
The difference is they prioritized stopping Fine's plans over trying to reason with her. With Carol it was all "Oh no look at this 500 year old hag in a loli body, she's crying, we should feel bad for her and support Hibiki's delusions"
>Yes they did, all of that.
What? No they didn't. When did they let Fine kill people while trying to save her instead of stopping her?
>they were still dealing with the consequences of not executing Fine with extreme prejudice
What the hell are you talking about? When did they give Fine a free pass and not try to stop her?
This guy gets it.
That would be bullshit and you know it.
What could they possibly do to make someone more unsympathetic than Carol, to the point where trying to reason with her seems sane compared to giving someone else no mercy? They'd need to go pretty deep into the shitty LN territory by making people who murder and rape just for kicks to make someone more irredeemable than Carol.
Carol was a mess and could have used a few more revisions, along with revamping her limp fake losing scheme and the entire buildup to the finale. Also using a different final attack would have been nice, but Glorious Break was really good.
I don't think G was particularly compelling storywise by the end, but at least it was novel. Season 1 had it right with putting the characters' lives and principles at risk, though it had the luxury of being the first season. It was still more hype than anything that came after it due to the stakes, in my opinion. Pic related.
>Tsubasa and Chris stop Fine's giant moon laser at great risk to themselves
>When she appears beaten and out of options, attempt to reason with her
>She suddenly, by complete surprise, can reach all the way to the moon chunk and pull it to Earth
Genjuro even stated how coincidental it was that the shuttle that carried data from frontier and Mom was having trouble, implying there was maybe sabotage involved
Oh, forgot to add
>All three girls risk their lives again to stop the piece of the moon
Meanwhile in GX thousands of civilians die and no one gives a fuck, Hibiki is unable to fight a doll that just got done sucking a dozen men dry while her friends are at risk because it has a cute face, and no one gives a fuck about any civilians that died outside of episode 6 because an old hag was crying.
>that just got done sucking a dozen men dry
Hibiki's hesitation in the middle of the series was obnoxious as hell, I agree. Especially when a similar plot was already executed kind of sloppily in the middle of G, except it at least had some logical basis with Tsubasa and Chris not wanting her to die because of her relic cancer. There's some amount of allowable poetic license with civilian deaths though, and she shapes up by the end to stop Carol.
>Hibiki is unable to fight a doll that just got done sucking a dozen men dry while her friends are at risk because it has a cute face
But she tried to fight and was unable to. You're just making up bullshit to complain about, what we got in GX was bad enough.
Yes. After defeating her and stopping her from killing people, they thought that her brain was back to Ryouko mode, the girl who they grew up with and knew personally. Fine then surprise whipped the moon.
Her and Carol are in no way comparable.
>and she shapes up by the end to stop Carol.
No she doesn't. She completely and utterly failed. Carol destroyed the city after her dad's memories fucked with her. Hibiki didn't save a damn thing.
>There's some amount of allowable poetic license with civilian deaths though
When Hibiki's whole deal is wanting to save people? When SONG's whole mission is to save people?
Her gear didn't activate because she didn't have the will to fight, it's the fucking point of that. She spent six months doing rescue work and didn't want to have to fight again, even if the thing she fighting was CLEARLY inhuman and just got done murdering several people right in front of her and was threatening her waifu and friends. Stop twisting the facts to suit your "argument".
>But she tried to fight and was unable to.
It didn't work because she DIDN'T want to fight. The whole problem she had was solved when Miku said that her fists aren't just for killing.
Because it looked vaguely human, is that better Mr. "I can't understand a joke"?
Yep, just like how people were killed due to Fine's madness in S1 and the actions of FIS in S2, but Hibiki gives them leeway and forgives them at the very end. Her idealism has always been a part of her character, and it has never been examined with calculating realism because it's not that kind of series.
That wasn't part of the plan itself, just her final attempt to go FUCK YOU to Hibiki's attempt at befriending after her plan had been ruined. Didn't quite work the way she hoped, though.
If it was Carol who had showed up in that scene then I could buy Hibiki's retardation since she did the same thing in episode 1 and hadn't gotten over it yet, but Garie? Killing her would be exactly the same as killing the noise, she's a weapon designed to kill people. Yet Hibiki suddenly has a problem with it because she looks like a human.
Hibiki would probably have had an issue with killing Noise, at least at first, if they looked like cute girls and could hold conversations.
That would be pretty spooky, actually. Mass-produced cute girls killing themselves by carbonizing, fully aware of their own actions... Reminds me of something, now that I think about it.
for being Faust's Robe its cover very little. . .
Also Carol should have been in adult from all the season, her alchemist outfit would have looked great on adult Carol specially the hat
Man, that "There's a crying girl Hibiki! You have to reach out your hand to her!" line was so great. Really painted topdad in a good and fatherly light and made me respect him as a person.
That's another thing that could/should have been examined with a better planned out GX. If a villain knew Hibiki's weaknesses then they could have cleverly turned them on her. As it was, Carol was just lucky to have the cute dolls as her henchmen.
Carol was absurdly lucky on a lot of things. Her plan required stupid amounts of keikau doori, if literally anyone at SONG stopped to think for half a second then it would've all fallen apart.
And what were they supposed to do if they did figure it out? Other than destroying that one relic that would have allowed Carol to activate her castle (which they probably wouldn't have been able to get permission for in time anyway), she didn't really give them much of a choice. It was either use Ignite, get wrecked by the dolls, or allow the dolls to destroy Japan.
Autoscorers. They recorded the cursed songs of destruction as those songs were used to destroy their bodies.
>And what were they supposed to do if they did figure it out?
Send Tsubasa, Chris and Genjuro in. Chris shots noise and provides cover fire via sniping. Tsubasa clears a path through the noise in front of Gen. Gen snaps the doll's neck like it's made out of toothpicks. Plan instantly over.
To record Dainsleif's song that would destroy the world so her castle could shoot big green lasers, I guess. Which required SONG completely trusting Elf9 and letting her modify their gears with a cursed relic.
Finding a way to beat even one doll without using Ignite would have ended Carol's entire plan instantly. If the dolls didn't always conveniently fight characters they countered perfectly it would've been over. If Chris or Hibiki fought Phara for example, she couldn't just TSURUGI TSURIGI NO TSURIGI BREAKER TSURUGI against them.
>If Chris or Hibiki fought Phara for example, she couldn't just TSURUGI TSURIGI NO TSURIGI BREAKER TSURUGI against them.
Phara might mental gymnastics some stuff to try and convince Hibiki that a spear is just a long sword and that therefore Gungnir is a sword, or arrows are just airborne swords and bullets are modern arrows so bullets are swords.
Whether that would work or not is another question.
Phara was reflecting bullets in episode 1, wind magic I guess. So I'm not sure about Chris but maybe Hibiki.
And yeah if Tsubasa was fighting someone else that might've gone better. I guess that's why Carol tagged out Micha in episode 6, because the dolls surviving was more important than her own body surviving.
Garie was not precisely a counter to Maria if anything she only disliked Maria for some reason.
Micha was supposed to be a counter to Hibiki or at least that what it looked like, but ended up fighting Kirika and Shirabe.
also instead of weird Chateau defense system Maria and Company should have fought rebuild versions of the dolls or something
And that brings up another question, what if someone killed a doll besides their designated rival? What if the same gear killed more than one doll? Would that fuck up her plan by giving her duplicate pieces of the formula she needed?
Reflecting bullets is a neat trick but I'd like to see what Phara would do against missile spam
It probably wouldn't ruin anything, simply because of the lack of explanation of Carol's plan. Most likely she's just collecting the phonic gain from the berserk/dainsleif gears.
>Micha was supposed to be a counter to Hibiki or at least that what it looked like
Main character got paired off with the main antagonist.
GX probably looked better on paper, devil in the details etc.
Then they should've just combined that with DMJii losing to Micha early on too, make the case, y'know, interact more. Having Hibiki get sucker punched by Micha twice and never get a proper rematch at all was stupid. Especially since the second time hospitalized her AGAIN almost immediately after she got out.
looked scary, amounted to nothing
The double hospitalization was ridiculous. It feels like Kaneko wanted to have a redo of when it happened in G, like a lot of GX, but then he went and did it two times over. Jesus Christ.
At least Chris got to not job to something that's not a Noise for once.
It was such a stark contrast to the formula that plagued the previous episodes, I almost applauded that!
Hell, she would've killed Carol and solved the whole plot early if Ver hadn't shown up
Not that I'm complaining about Ver showing up but Ver and Leiur teaming up to take over the world and be FLASHY together would've been amazing.
What's with Japan and loving KEIKAU DOORI so much anyways? Watching villains carefully laid plans fall apart and then having to bullshit their way to victory just as hard as the heroes is way more entertaining. It's half the reason Phoenix Wright is fun, for example. Villain breakdowns are the best.
Wasn't Anubis more the sword's Stand power than the Stand power of a person who used to wield the sword? It's been a long-ass time since I read Part III.
Also the back-jumper thing from Diamond is not Crash
>Diamond is not Crash
Oh, god. We start to get posting Part 4 stuff soon.
No matter what the enemy's plan is, for the sake of drama it needs to go as far as possible.
Personally I love characters who just bullshit their way through things and make their plans up as they go. Especially when they go up against people who make super complex strategies and probably play Chess.
Fuck drama, the villain can still have their plan progress towards their end goals but having it go off flawlessly without a single hitch at any point until the final episode is just boring and 99% of the time requires the heroes being ridiculously oblivious to what's going on.
Remember when Fine had a plan but it didn't go perfectly and she had to adjust and make a new plan but still worked towards the same end goals, which in turn made her far more infallible and interesting than Carol?
And makes it much more shocking when the villains suddenly turn things around on the heroes.
Since we're talking about Jojo, for example, when Cars
uses Stroheim's UV lights to activate the stone mask
Remember that time that Fine's plan involved assassinating anyone near the truth instead of sending out fucking robodolls to explain your top secret plan?
Carol's plan reminds me of this, and this is a joke video.
>Episode 6 never
It's not about having a HUGE plan, but the villains not being absolutely flawlessly perfect geniuses that nothing ever goes wrong for until the final episode.
Elaborating, their skin was too strong to be pierced by the stone mask as was done to turn humans into vampires (who were then used as food by the pillar men), so they wanted to use the Stone of Aja to weaken themselves and allow their skin to be pierced in order to grow stronger.
They why didn't they destroy the stone of Aja?
>instead of sending out fucking robodolls to explain your top secret plan?
Bakana! How could the audience follow the story without that?
Yeah. Keikakus in general are overrated shit, especially when they're too easy to figure out but no one in show seems to be able to do realize what's going on, or they're complete horseshit on par with literal magic. It's all about balance and proper foreshadowing, and most people can't do that.
Oh wait, Kaneko did that in WA2 with
Irvine funding Odessa and him planning out everything to sacrifice himself and his sister to stop the Kuiper Core.What the hell happened to him? He used to actually be a good writer.
So did he just forget about the ripple in part 3? He had Joseph use it like twice, and everything else seemed to default to electro-vines and spirit photography.
Well, holy is super effective against dark types, but Joseph showed it could be used for all kinds of cool shit in part 2.
Do you know how many fights would have ended in seconds if Joseph just brought along a six pack of Coca Cola?
Ripple is only super useful against vampires. And Joseph did try to use it against DIO several times but DIO saw through his tricks
Stands as a concept had much more potential than Ripple once he got the obvious ones out of the way like "shoots fire" and "punchghost", and even with those there was still a lot of creativity in the fights.
>Well. scarves are super effective pretty much anywhere that isn't a flat plain. Do you know how many fights would have been ended in seconds if Joseph just brought along a ball of yarn?
He's had like forty years more of practice, and in the desert, nobody is going to say shit about maybe seeing a few sparks from the soda bottle of the old man sitting on the side.
His only other weapon was basically a whip. I'd take exploding bottle guns over a purple whip that lets me maybe see a vague future any day.
Like the first chapter of part 2 is him breaking a cop's finger into mush using only a coca cola cap and the ripple.
Pastebin anon did you grab that doujin from the other thread? Or did that anon maybe upload it somewhere else?
Didn't really want to look through back 3-5 threads for it unless I absolutely had to.
The HibiMiku one? I missed any links if any were posted, but I'll look back real quick.
>He's had like forty years more of practice
No he didn't, he stopped practicing because they thought all the vampires were gone once the Pillar Men were over and done with
You're also forgetting the part where Hermit Purple is completely invisible to anyone without a Stand of their own.
>he stopped practicing because they thought all the vampires were gone once the Pillar Men were over and done with
Let's be real, here. Joseph Joestar would not stop trying to apply the ripple in his daily life. He tried to fuck up a smoothtalker at an italian restaurant using razor-spaghetti. Once TVs came out in bulk, he'd use that shit to change the channel if he could.
>You're also forgetting the part where Hermit Purple is completely invisible to anyone without a Stand of their own.
You're forgetting the part where that's a useless feature, because almost every person they fought was a stand user. And the few times he used it outside of having a talking boyle on his arm, he would also be able to just kill the opponent using a bottlecap to the skull.
Just because he still used Ripple occasionally doesn't mean he was doing the fucking intense training he did to beat the Pillar Men
And most stand users wouldn't be terribly inconvenienced by a flying bottle cap considering how many of them could just block it, or 90% of the fight was figuring out where the fuck they were using their power from.
>Just because he still used Ripple occasionally doesn't mean he was doing the fucking intense training he did to beat the Pillar Men
No, but he'd still stay at a moderate level, getting the easier shit like bottlecaps down pretty quick. Hell, the cola and wine bottles were before he had the intense training, so how fast would he be, now?
>And most stand users wouldn't be terribly inconvenienced by a flying bottle cap considering how many of them could just block it
Only if they noticed it. And even if they saw an old man holding soda, what would they think? If he held out a bottle in front of Hol Horse, Hol would just laugh, then have a
holein his head.
I'm not arguing that he couldn't still do the soda trick, but saying he was significantly better at the ripple in Part 3 than he was in Part 2 is just plain wrong.
And considering all of DIO's minions knew that Joseph was a stand user? They'd have to be complete idiots to let their guard down around a stand user doing literally anything that seems out of the ordinary, even if they didn't know about the Ripple at all.
>You're also forgetting the part where Hermit Purple is completely invisible to anyone without a Stand of their own.
and yet Terence T. D'Arby couldn't see it and lost because of it
>but saying he was significantly better at the ripple in Part 3 than he was in Part 2 is just plain wrong.
Well, considering how the whole discussion is about the soda trick, and he has the breathing part down, yes, he's better. It's all in the breathing.
>They'd have to be complete idiots to let their guard down around a stand user doing literally anything that seems out of the ordinary, even if they didn't know about the Ripple at all.
He just needs to stand on the side. Just be an old man in a crowd, or get behind them. Most of the stands they fought were gimmick bullshit instead of straight up fighters. One shot is all it takes.
But the enemy stand users didn't even know what they were capable of.
And if four of them started manly-chugging soda like they do with iced tea, and then the old one reached for another bottle that happened to shoot your face off, you'd be pretty off guard.
Except DIO had been spying on them, and on top of that there were a few like Hol Horse that DID live to report back to DIO. And DIO knew about Avdol, Kakyoin, and Polnareff's Stands for sure before Part 3 even started.
And considering the stand users were always the ones getting the drop on the Joestars I doubt that would happen, especially since it'd be faster to just have Star Platinum fucking punch them in the exact scenario where the soda bottle trick might have a chance of working.
>especially since it'd be faster to just have Star Platinum fucking punch them in the exact scenario where the soda bottle trick might have a chance of working.
That just raises more questions of lazy writing. Why does Jotaro never have his near-unbreakable superfast stand just crush a skull since he has no qualms with killing?
But we're still speaking from the point of Joseph, who they don't know his abilities and is almost useless without his bandolier of cola.
Well out of the fights Joseph had any major involvement in,
Can't shoot his own arm
Bottlecap would turn around and stick to him instead
Couldn't just shoot him since they had to beat him at gambling
Already helped Jotaro cheat around his mind reading using Hermit Purple to play the game while Jotaro did the thinking to fake out D'arby
Bottlecap would do jack shit to a fucking vampire
A bottlecap really isn't an effective weapon against the average stand user due to their powers blocking it, the range being too great, the user being hidden, or it not doing enough damage to actually stop the user in the first place

>Well out of the fights Joseph had any major involvement in,
This means nothing because having a weapon that is the equivalent of a hidden magic holy pistol would give him more involvement in many other fights. He'd be a major playing in any fight where he says "Oh my god!"
>A bottlecap really isn't an effective weapon against the average stand user due to their powers blocking it
Very few have the powers to block it. Hell, unless they saw it coming, he could murder half of his own team with that. Even ones like Ho, Horse whose fucking stand IS a gun wouldn't stand a chance because Joseph would have the element of surprise, which is something Joseph kinda banks on. Like that time he killed Wamuu with what is basically a shotput.
You keep going to Hol Horse which is one of the few stand users on DIO's side that wouldn't have any way to block, avoid, or stay the fuck away from it. Having a soda bottle handy wouldn't have changed any of the fights Joseph was around for during Part 3. And you keep going back to
>But if he surprised them it'd work!
When anyone who doesn't have their guard up at all times against any stand user is asking to get their ass murdered right there. Joseph doesn't need a soda bottle to be tricky, none of the stand users do.
I want to make plush dolls of the zesshoushinais.
I wish I knew how to make plush dolls.
>You keep going to Hol Horse which is one of the few stand users on DIO's side that wouldn't have any way to block, avoid, or stay the fuck away from it.
Many of them don't. So many of them are just "hit hard", and the rest are illusion bullshit, with the exception of one old lady who makes zombies.
>Having a soda bottle handy wouldn't have changed any of the fights Joseph was around for during Part 3.
Remember that time they're in the restaurant near the start and he could have just shot Polnareff?
>When anyone who doesn't have their guard up at all times against any stand user is asking to get their ass murdered right there.
Except those many times they don't. Which is all the time. There are so many times Joseph just shows up because Araki remembered that he was a character that he could just stand in the doorway and nail someone in the head.
>Joseph doesn't need a soda bottle to be tricky, none of the stand users do.
Joseph doesn't have shit otherwise, and did next to nothing in part 3.
>Remember that time they're in the restaurant near the start and he could have just shot Polnareff?
Considering all the shit Polnaereff could do when he was being competent like cutting fire or stabbing right through coins, I don't think a bottle cap would have done much. On top of that, you might as well ask why Kakyoin wasn't just spamming Emerald Splash at everything that went anywhere near them at all times.
>Considering all the shit Polnaereff could do when he was being competent like cutting fire or stabbing right through coins, I don't think a bottle cap would have done much.
Polnareff was focused on Avdol. All he'd have to do is ask the waiter for a drink to go and that he'd open it himself. Then hold it lazily under the table while the Polnareff and Avdol discuss their duel or start walking out and it's over.
>On top of that, you might as well ask why Kakyoin wasn't just spamming Emerald Splash at everything that went anywhere near them at all times.
Because emerald splash was never strong. It's literally just throwing rocks. It only ever pierced anything, including things like walls and wood, about twice.
>Stronger than a bottlecap
A bottlecap that broke a finger, versus rocks that never did anything.
>and much harder to block or avoid
But literally everyone blocks or avoids them. Their first appearance is being blocked by Star Platinum's arm.
If you're still here pastebinanon, could you update the lewdfic listing to change some of the pastebins to point to my new AO3?
I think it's the first listed under "other" and then one that isn't listed at all
just in case I ever need to edit something, really
i now return to my regularly scheduled shamefur lurking
Should be all good now, thanks for the work
and for letting my blind self know.
I'm sad that we didn't get many TsubaChri bro moments.
They should've added cool gun/sword combination attacks while fighting the dolls instead of shitty drama nobody asked for.
She's had a more fucked up past than anyone in the cast AND she's the most normal person in the cast with no mental problems.
>Chris plays FFVIII
>she asks Elfnein to enhance Ichaival by putting a little part of Ame no Habakiri on it
>Tsubasa asks for the same too
>they become the strongest duo in the whole division
>Tsubasa gets one too
>she has no idea how the fuck it works
>Chris has to teach her
>it's a training episode that also had Chris and Tsubasa playing games in it
SLICE OF LIFE FUCKING NEVER
>tfw we will never have more TsubaChri bro moments because Kaneko's fucking obsessed with TsubaMari gay moments
Werent those moments unintentional? As in the shipping that branched off of them was unintentional? Wasnt it he just wanted her to have more screentime and having her be with Nana a lot could satisfy his boner?
>Maria is with Tsubasa almost every single minute they appear
>Maria's the one who interacted more with Tsubasa
>even in the fucking ending they're still together
Hey, you can post all the Carol pictures you want.
I wish there were more moments of Tsubasa smiling.
She's so goddamn beautiful, Jesus Christ.
Are you me? That sure sounds like me.
She even offers to share her malk with me
Nowhere near soon enough. I WANT IT NOW https://a.pomf.cat/qtrafq.webm. With Sound
So I'm close to the end of season 1. Been meaning to ask. What the fuck language is this? Is it english? The japanese VAs trying to pronounce english?
>Hibiki invades Chris's house with Miku
>Brought some movie that doesn't look like a horror movie
>Afterwards, pic related happens
>They look back at Miku's SENKOU face and scream
Best girl, best song
I'm now a chrisfag unless I find Maria and the other two better
Who knows? The most youngest Tsubasa behavior we know is her imouto one around Kanade. Besides crying, they never showed anything about loli Tsubasa.
She might be one energetic kid before that loved to sing Enka to Genjuuro and Yatsuhiro.
Are they going to explain why Genjuro is so strong? Is it just for fun? Why arent there tons of elite soldiers like him?
>look up Nana's role list
>Nana has a brown girl character
>tfw more of Nana voicing a 4th wall breaking character never
>tfw Anshin'in and Kumagawa was the only character I liked in that shit series
>Minus arc animated fucking never
>those cute stuff toys
So Tsubasa doesn't like only ugly stuff toys?
Today I dreamed that I dreamed that I met Nana but I was dissapointed because I said "Hi Nana" when I saw her and she only replied "meh" with a boring face I think. Have you dreamed about the Gears or the seiyuus?
I uploaded this for /a/, but have some Aoi singing.
Just finished the first season. Is it all downhill from here with the others?
>listened to M no Sekai's new year episode
>they called in Matsumoto Rica to guest
>in the letter corner they were asked what they would sing if they were to do a collaboration
>they decided on an Enka+Rock combination and they really want to make it real then Rica said it'll appear on somewhere like Kouhaku
>Nana says "your dream has gotten bigger" then laughs
>Rica says "Its possible. If it has Nana in it it'll show up there!!!"
>Rica shouts out to King Records
Great, it'll only be a matter of time until a Matsumoto Rica x Mizuki Nana collaboration gets officially confirmed.
