How can you like Platinum? She's a malicious, egocentric, spoiled little bitch. Unless you're the kind of person that parks next to playgrounds and tries to lure little girls into his van.
Would you just look at the time?! It's time for JUSTICE!
happy new years, dont forget to drink lots of water
In the Phase Shift novels he survived in a pocket of slowed time thanks to magic and popped out wanting to sacrifice Celica. At that point Nine blasted dear old dad across the room and he expired.
Oh, okay. I'm hungover already though, so I'll just drink more vodka.
Please post more sexy Hazama though. He's a real qt.
>I'm hungover already
I played drunken blazblue all night with you(?) assholes
Damn, yeah. We had one from midnight till like 6 am EST
I think only 2 out of 5 of us were drinking but it was still pretty
>Do people seriously ship Ragna with his clone sisters here?
I don't though I'm only half serious about the makoto and ragna thing. I know it wouldn't happen but i wouldn't mind if it did. They've never even talked to each other outside of a gag
Gross. No. No defiling the Goddess.
I bet the captain's really fun when he's drunk.
Terumi probably, but judging from story mode I think Hazama'd just be really lewd and flirty
How many Hazama images do you have? Any Femzama?
>mfw Ragna gets his just comeuppance and dies, cold and alone
Can't fucking wait
Why are these two so cute?
Tsubaki is a miracle of the universe. You better watch your shitposting, bucko.
The only miracle here is that the Yayoi family ladder produced offspring with few obvious visible defects. Shame about the face though.
Ragna will still be nice to her though, because he's a swell guy.
Her hat is dumb, but she looks good with a ponytail
Obviously she's the most waifuable Blaz outside of Remix Heart. But her most unattractive feature is that she likes an asshole like Jin. Never a good sign when girls go for guys who are mean to them
Except that it's pretty explicit that Jin isn't mean to Tsubaki. He is mean to Noel, but who doesn't want to bully that stupid cunt?
>but who doesn't want to bully that stupid cunt?
Hazama can be the top too you know.
Has Tsubaki's hat been in any of the gag stories?
I actually wondered about that. I know she's not the smartest, but she isn't stupid. Was her being "WHERE IS KOKONOE YOU BEASTKIN" because she doesn't know better, or because of the Imperator's Intervention, or a little bit of both?
Who knows, it was an arcade route thing where everyone's kind of dumb and more atypically dickish.
I just think she's a dumb kid with some major misconceptions playing soldier.
No, and it needs to be.
They really need to make more gag reels for vanilla CF. How many was in CP, like 4? And a couple were rehashes.
And Help me Kokonoe. That needs to come back too.
She's a complete moron. Grabbing random passerbys and trying to murder them because they can't tell her where Kokonoe is is simply retarded. She's as stupid as Noel, only she's an aggressive retard rather than a crybaby retard.
She did that in the actual story mode.
That she might lack social graces as a result of her upbringing but still have a brain and not have murder as her default way of dealing with problems. She still had to socialize and interact with the mercenaries, so it's not as if she's a robot that doesn't have experience with human interactions.
Yes. What I was trying to say is that one can't excuse that as Izanami somehow fucking with her and it wasn't exclusive to the arcade mode.
I don't know how to explain the Valkenhayn part, but she mentions how she didn't actually mean to fight Litchi, but she couldn't resist the urge, which leads me to believe it was the intervention, but again, I don't know if she knows any better.
She also randomly calls Valkenhayn a "non-human" and in her win quote against Makoto it sounds like she's saying "You stupid furry nigger, don't you know people can see your boobs/tail?"
She specifically says "There's no need for manners against [sic] non-humans." and attacks Valkenhayn because she thinks all furry niggers are conspiring together.
Beating up Litchi and random people, probably intervention. Valkenhayn, probably intervention but also Bullet's a racist.
Almost everyone hates beastkin in the BB universe. The fact that Makoto's friends treated her like a human is why she's willing to die for them. Even if Bullet had one in her team her attitude could have simply been that he's good for a beastkin, assuming that she didn't hate and avoid him anyway.
That's because much of the main cast is beastkin and people who are friends with or work close with them. They are the exception.
It's the beastkins fault I have this erection
Plat is cute. You keep doing you,platposter.
You get to see Hazama/Terumi cosplaying any other fighting game character. Who do you choose?
or ash crimson, that's fine too
I hope that Mai will have a happy ending.
Anon, you made me crave for something I never thought I could crave. Now it's 1 am and I'm drawing shitty santa snakes.
Noel's cheek peek is a miracle of the universe. And the only good thing about her.
Don't forget to drink water, ZEAboy
Happy new years.
Trinity has a nice body now that I look at her.. But then again this is fanart
She's pretty cute in the official art too. Nice boins, nice ass.
It probably would have happened if nine wasn't around.
And make sure you eat as well!
This is a public service announcement, if you encounter either of these two women,retreat immediately and do not engage, the suspects are often seen with a main wearing a red jacket and silver hair and are prone to talking about said man in detail and their are various reports of a squirrel beastkin female and a kaka clan member that appear to be working with the suspects as well please wait for more information as the story unfolds.
Citizen I must advise you again to not approach these women, do not let their appearances fool you.
People don't die in BB, so I think that Mai's odds of surviving are actually pretty good.
Think it was just the one who colored it.
Makoto x Hazama is just as wrong as Terumi x Trinity.
Which is just as wrong as Ragna x his sister or any of her clones, Bang x Litchi, Arakune x Litchi, Relius x anyone, Rachel x Ragna...
God, I think the only OTP that's both sane and moral is Tsubaki and Jin, and that's saying a lot considering their personalities.
If we're talking hazama without terumi, then makohaz isn't too bad considering they're coworkers. I think it's sorta uncharacteristic, but it's cute fluff either way.
You should learn to take it easy and have
She does a lot of haz/mako and did the art for the blazblue cafe thing.
Makoto says she hates Hazama and can't trust him at all, and we know she's talking about Hazama because Terumi doesn't show up for Terumi time unless it's to piss off somebody important. She hates Terumi even more than Hazama by her win quote, but that's besides the point.
The point being this is wrong.
um excuse me? ragna x rachel is the only logical outcome. everything else is right though
Well what good would winning the Ragnabowl do in a timeloop where Ragna's fate is to die a horrible death?
She probably wanted to start out pure and save him properly, THEN get depraved, so he'd remember all her commands every session thereafter.
Plat has objectively the best ass in all of BB.
She's literally the only character to have a proper ass attack.
what's so disgusting about my adorable sexy puranchinamu
how the fuck are bang x litchi, arakune x litchi, rachel x ragna, and ragna x murakumos immoral
the murakumos are genetically engineered clones, not his fucking sister, they have different memories and personalities
litchi only wants to get with arakune after he goes human again
what's wrong with rachel x ragna? because she's immortal? she's an observer and she can keep him alive for fucking centuries if she wants
>implying plat isn't an insanely fuckable sex goddess
lmao i'm talking about how tumblr idiots hate lolis and lolicons with a burning passion
like, i'm on tumblr almost exclusively for the hentai and you would not believe how much harassment loli artists and fans get from retards on there
Its fucking 3:22 AM where I am, I'm just typing shit without thinking right now
sena is a gentlemen though. luna on the outside is rude but is pretty sweet inside
Taro/Mai seems like it would work pretty well. They're both very nice and obviously care for each other.
I'd post if this were a NSFW board or if i had time to edit out my dick. I'm lazy and probably going to sleep in like 10 minutes because I've been sleep deprived the whole week
>Liking an inbred slut
She should go with the superior Nii-sama
Jin a shit
Hakumen a ded
Would you show her your justice?
That's being with someone in the truest sense of the word!
Why BlazBlue characters are so more likeable than Guilty Gears? No bait here, but sometimes I feel like Ragna is more developed that Sol, and he is hilarious being the straight man in almost every case.
>tfw was hungover from NYE and only drank yesterday
Am I going to die?
Noel is too pure for that.
Yeah, that's the feeling I got. Sol is in the role of angry uncle in Xrd, and in a lot of ways, it seems like he's all over and done with his world-changing adventures. With Ragna, he's still open to being hurt, and there's this immense pathos as everything is out to ruin his life.
Yes. In the future almost all women wear really revealing clothes. Also they all shave their pussies.
It seems pretty likely that Mai will be in CF eventually:
- She was introduced in CPE which allowed people who haven't read the manga to learn her backstory.
- She has a very popular VA so it makes sense to use her again. And Mai has a system voice and pretty much every character with a system voice is or will be playable.
- Mori had said that Mai's story would continue when Remix Heart ended and he has also produced a design for her after she graduated.
- ArcSys produced a Mai phone strap along phone straps for Noel and Celica when CPE was released, which indicates they consider her relatively important.
Would be interesting to see her play style if they do add her for the console version of CF, or later a CFE.
In the manga she mainly attacks with a sword and parrying dagger, though she also uses kicks. I think this gives us a good indication what her moveset will be like. I'm interested to see how they'd base a Drive on Mai's grimoire though.
Anyone know any sick nasty OD combos for Hazama?
Fuck micro-dashing I hate it so much
Damn I can't enjoy myself online. I just got the game yesterday yet it feels like everyone online already has played this game for a long time. Their no newbies like myself on there so I instantly get thrashed every match.
Join the /blaz/ lobbies when they go up. I haven't played in a while, but last I played the skill level wasn't too high. Maybe a bunch of shitters who like Blazblue to jack off to the waifus
I don't know if it's your first BB, but you're not going to get good overnight. That's true for all fighting games and BB is no exception.
It will take time, but I know you can do it anon!
Here's one if you OD and they end up blocking
OD > 5C > 5D~D > j.2D~D > 5C ~ 5D~D > j.2D~D > and you can mix it up with a 6A or if you actually broke their defense you can cancel into a microdash rising fang for more damage
Not sure if this one works but try it anyway, gotta have low health
3C > OD > 66 > 5C > 2D > charge CT > 66 > 5C > 6C > 5D > 214D~charge66~A > 5C > 6D~D > j.5D~B > j.4D~A > 4D~A > j.8D~A > 623D > Super
You can also play Bullet because her combos are fun and easy to learn.
The thing is, I can hardly hold my old against the AI and even then I have more success button mashing than actually trying to do something coherent. Even a bad player would slaughter me.
Did you play the tutorial and do a few of the early challenge mode missions for your character? You should start with the basics. Dustloop has a lot of good information. The wiki isn't just for character knowledge, but general information on the game.
dont worry bout getting crushed by ai that doesnt mean anything. go look at the character you like challenges and find a very easy to do midscreen, corner, and throw combo. dont even worry bout winning at this point just try to survive longer each time and whenever you get an opening use those easy combos there. the truth is just to keep playing accepting losses and trying to learn from them. if you stick with it and dont give up you WILL get better it just takes time.
Go into training mode, hit the dummy with stuff and see which ones you can jump with.
Then set the dummy to block everything, and see if any of your normals can jump cancel on block. This can be useful for staying safe or to find out block strings.
Typically, learning combos helps you learn what's jump cancelable in general.
That stirred up something in my heart. Pls have this ZEA as thanks.
>the story ruined sol for me.
(I got motivated to write something from your post. A stream of text that I'm now unable to make more cohesive, so I apologize in advance. GG franchise is mostly about fighting notwithstanding):
That's what he has always been. He has had to make some drastic choices and had a coarser personality prior though which made him less boring. A person told me once that the GG story isn't about overcoming adversity, but instead about "justice," a justice each character tries to establish in the world for themselves. The focus isn't on the fighting or power levels. But you know this was pre-Overture, which well overwhelmed us with story and story tone that to be honest for me didn't really fit in with anything prior. GG used to be restrained and down-to-earth about things. (This isn't really the correct phrase for what I'm talking about though. I mean it in a sense of it was less animeishly declarative? The characters used to doubt things, but post-Overture they have matured and are quite static and wholesome now. There's less of the actual emotional conflict of the story.) Nevertheless I welcomed it. It's fitting to know what Ishiwatari really intended after all this time.
Nevertheless if it helps you at all Sol is only the third in the pecking order. That Man and Raven are above him. Yes in his full glory Slayer loses to him. I've forgotten the ratio, but I think Sol was at least 33/20 as strong.
>tfw Sol uses 1% of his power in normal fights and 5% in Dragon Installed Instant Kill mode. (Without Dragon Install it's 3%.) (Doesn't try 10% and power limiter 10%+ make that 1%)
Sol is literally the self-insert to end all self-inserts played completely straight. However since he's shameless about it, it works at least for me.
Hey. At least he isn't Ky. Fuck that sanctimonious cradlerobber.
those kinds of characters that only use 1% of his power and still stomps is just superman tier lame. i know why his personality is the way it is but that still doesnt help me like him any more. desu i regrett ever looking into the gg lore after playing through xrds story. i would still be rocking sol to this day if i just ignored it. i can agree with you on ky though fuck that faggot
I'd also add that you should go to the blazblue wiki and look up the frame data. It'll tell you what's cancellable, invuln frames, etc etc. Also has a good tool showing the hurtboxes of attacks.
Because she's the cutest of all Murakumo's.
Anyone know when central Fiction is coming to US? I might skip Extend because it has nothing new.
Yeah because we can totally trust Mu
6 to 9 more months, just get it now if you are actually interested, which i wouldn't blame you if you are not
There will be more, at least two more before it hits consoles, plus the console characters
>Extend has Mai though
No Taro then fuck Mai I'd rather Alpha
Can he even do anything?
I don't think they'll actually add him in. I mean hell, they didn't even bother showing his face in the only picture he was in.
Get those cheeks ready! Nu has some True Merging to do!
Fuck I really wanted my string guy. He would play like Byakuya from under night in birth
But I want to impregnate Platinum!
It'd be nice, given what they're both doing in the story to join back up into the main one together. That, and it'd be nice to see some cute scenes with them as well.
Yay~ Tsundere-anon is still here!
If I remember correctly they changed studios on who handled the dub and translation after CS. That why we got this whole mess going on with rushed translations after that. Around that time is when Bang and Hazama VA got replaced.
Is him calling Kagura 'Big Bro' just the way he likes to address him then?
Damn. Aksys have been really dragging their feet then.
How closely do they work with ASW? I remember someone saying the reason GG is coming out so quick is because they're doing the localizations in house.
Blazblue would be better if all the characters were cute girls.
Mai's color scheme is rather similar to that of Dizzy, but if anything her design resembles more that of the archetypal swordswoman like Meiya from Muv-Luv or Yuzuriha from UNIEL. Which makes sense since that's what she fights with. And Mai's story and background are very different compared to those of Dizzy.
Mu is pretty cute too. I like all the murakumos. I'm trying to learn Mu now, but halfcircles are the death of me.
Speaking of learning, what are all of you guys working on?
Good thing that Mai fell in love with a good person rather than a psychotic asshole.
Correct. Taro is Kagura's cousin. Sumeragi in an interview had said that initially the two weren't meant to be related but when they saw that Kagura and Taro resembled one another they decided to have them be cousins.
I do find it rather ironic that Taro actually has more fanart and doujinshi than Kajun. But that's because fangirls love to ship him with Jin. In fact there's more stuff of him getting shipped with Jin that there is of him with Mai.
To be honest the Hazama/Terumi VA thing is confusing. I been seeing comments saying the VA that we got for extend Hazama/Terumi was the original that was in CT that got replaced for CS. Yet others are saying the exact opposite that the CS one was also the CT and the one that came when the extend revision was his replacement.
I'm working on my collection of lewds! It's not going very well!
I don't think so. He does have to kill as part of his job as Jin's bodyguard but he only does that defensively. He seems like an honestly cheerful and kindhearted person and he's very protective of those around him. E.g. he tastes Jin's food before letting him eat it when he suspects it's poisoned and puts himself in front of Mai when Jin goes berserk and tries to kill her.
Platposting best posting
I might even play her in CF, shit looks mad fun
Killing an assassin sent to murder you and the person you're tasked with protecting seems like justifiable homicide to me.
Don't forget about high/low heart car giving her some really amazing corner carry and scary hitconfirming
one change i would really like is her counter to not suck ass. like if you get a successful counter to be able to combo after it. changing the motion to not be hold would be great too
the anti plat is a vocal minority obviously
Last I saw you can combo off it in CF
The motion ain't so bad, it's out there mainly to deal with overheads
Taro did surprisingly well in a bururaji poll at one point. He doesn't top any lists, but he is relatively popular.
I find it rather interesting that both CP and the CT manga discussed or illustrated Mai and Taro but ignored Kajun. However CPE featured Mai and Kajun and barely included Taro. Maybe ArcSys changed their minds on which two characters to introduce into the main story from the Remix Heart manga. But I suppose that they could still include Taro if they wanted to.
Who's best Platinum player to watch?
She's strangely underplayed like Relius
Taro could always be a DLC character at some point down the line when they want to deal with him and Mai finally interacting after all these years. That is to say if they haven't already, though if Mai went missing and Jin didn't need protecting anymore, he might've went looking for her as well.
>while not great very consistent damage output
>huge buffs during OD
She's very good but underplayed character. Not everyone want to be shitty Terumilitary memer
It's hard to know what happened to Taro. He may have gone to look for Mai, but he could have also gone to do some other work for Kagura. As for Mai, we know that she deserted after graduating instead of serving in the NOL military. This fits with Mai's father's desire for her to live an independent life instead of being a pawn of the NOL. Based on the fact that she's armed, she presumably became some sort of warrior.
I haven't watched much Blazblue stuff, but in the west, XIE's the only one I've seen.
I suppose that's why the dustloop videos are organized by characters and not players though.
It's funny because Platinum gets posted way more often than Terumi, and is much more infamous for it.
Everyone knows platfags are just tsundere for terushits anyways, like god damn JPs don't even play him that much and you brought it up out of nowhere
