Also, I love Yomi!
Forming a Senran harem is against the law! Every Senran deserves a man for themselves!
I consider myself a proponent of the concept of healthy enough self-esteem to demand a faithful partner.
that being said senran harems are not on the books as a crime
then you are a cuck
Please do not cuckold the Senrans or be cuckolded by the Senrans. Sank you.
Magic 8-ball hazy, ask again later
We better have Xtreme Miyabi in the OP before this event ends!
And like a faint memory, it's gone in a moment
OK I got rid of the lower res version! Now we can have the good one!
Luvin' Hikage! Even if she proposed to me in a wedding dress at knife point!
No one escapes the all powerful clothes destroying breeze!
No. I'm going to adopt her and raise her to be a good girl.
It was only really bad on the first and second day after the reveal of SV going to PC. Hopefully it never goes back like that again. Reading some of those posts was extremely embarrassing.
That's no way to speak to your father, Haruka-chan. Go to your room right now.
>Anon is nervous. Tonight is the night that he gets to DOKKAN with Hanabi
>He clumsily knocks on the door to her house
>Hanabi lets him in, already down to her bra and panties
>Anon's dick is the hardest of diamonds
>She tells him to strip down
>He does so, a boner clearly visible
>The next several hours are spent in a very hot room forging bombs and other explosives
>Do ya feel it Anon? Do ya feel the DOKKAN!?
"True" mustards are legitimately some of the most obnoxious shitposters around, I can see why people would be worried. But they do not represent the PC userbase as a whole, and they mostly stick to /v/, so I doubt much will actually change.
SHOW ME WAYS OFU AMERICAN! DOUBRE-DECKER HAMBUGAH! OPENU CARRY! DON'TU MESSU WIS TEXUAS!
On one hand I want a Shinovi Versus HD that's on par with Estival Versus, but on the other hand I don't see Xseed doing much more than upscaling the resolution and dropping in high res textures.
If significant improvements were being made I think a PS4 version would have been mentioned as well.
>tfw finding candy you hid and forgot about

I can't figure out if Hikage is a dork or a scary lady! Which is it?
Why do games still do that in 2016
They shouldnt even have been doing that in 2001
Tying ANYTHING to framerate is like a surefire way to make sure you game will break in the most retarded ways
Exactly. In one of their blog posts about localization they go on about how expensive it is to work with a game's original programmers. They can probably cut costs by requesting the game's art assets and source code from Marvelous JP and putting it together themselves.
I guess it's possible to be a scary dork.
I don't think it is, the framerate on Vita is all over the place but you don't see the physics fucking up.
It's not exactly a good way to do things, but it's an effective shortcut when you already know how your game is going to run (which you do know when developing for consoles).
A sexy scary dork that makes you cum inside her by telling you to cum and then slamming a knife down within 1mm of your ear and then licks your other ear and tells you "Good boy!".
You sure do rike sturange sings, sank you.
Wirr buring zis up when I tark to your parents, sank you.
Maybe zey will give some advice, sank you.
I want Mirai to make me sit under her computer desk and lick her little pussy while she writes a lewd part of Rapunzel the Shinobi!
When do you know you're too far gone /skg/? I just fapped to a NTR doujin where the boyfriend got turned into a girlfriend by some futa by being fucked in the ass while the girlfriend had to watch, then she talked to the mother of the guy who got raped in the butt, trained sex with him and they both decided to get the son back by fucking him and his new futafriend in the bum with strap-ons. My senran would never talk to me again if she ever found out and I'm feeling like shit because of it.
This is an Anon who crossed over into the senranverse! This is what happens when we enter the senranverse!
Okay I'll try to explain with senrans.
Imu and Miyabi were dating, but Imu was incredibly bad at sex. For shit and giggles she convinced miyabi(m) to crossdress as a maid (f). Later Mirai(futa) joined the party by raping Miyabis(m) ass and turning him into her girlfriend. Imu was incredibly sad and went to mama rin complaining that her son turned into a futa fucktoy and mama rin trained imu in the ways of love. Later Imu raped miyabis ass and claimed him back while mama rin raped mirai.
I guess I'll go to hell then.
Careful what you ask for. You might get one like Barry
I would love to get Barry. I'll gladly rub my soft body up against him when he comes home from training and get him hard. I'd let him strip me and carry me as he fucked me right in the pussy so we can procreate. I'd constantly bake cakes and Mr. Bunny cookies for him when I'm pregnant with his babies.
you know what, with Yo I'd believe that
also jesus christ that crotchbone
You know looking at this screen, what the hell is up with some of the head colors of the children. Unless they dyed them, there really shouldn't be any green or purple haired children.
>ywn take Hikage to the mall and buy her cute outfits
People can easily find the second link in the second command. I thought that spoon feeding was unnecessary.
You're dealing with shinobi youngling here. Exotic hair colors are more frequent within ninja clans.
Don't you know how anime hair works?
Blue, green and purple are all the same gene.
I guess one parent had Green hair or something and the other was brown
>also known as "younglings" so that we don't have to use the phrase "killed children" in a movie
She wouldn't, thats what makes it so great. She wouldn't care at all, she would be my kawaii green doll.
Where does this 'Hikage has no emotions' stuff even come from? I thought her whole story in burst was that she hated katsuragi because she was so overly emotional and in SV she had some sick banter with multiple senrans. Haven't played 2 or EV yet.
Feeling pretty isn't an emotion
You're a smart guy
She doesn't have emotions because she doesn't have emotions. Something was clearly wrong with her from a young age and she got dumped into an orphanage because of it.
Her rivalry with Kat is basically just Kat trying to get a rise out of her.
What would you do if
>your making love with your Senran
She starts moaning and groaning in pleasure
>then she starts calling you
daddysaying oh! Yes! Yes! daddy!give me more!
The way she says it seems to be in a incestuous way. Like she's might be thinking of someone else.
I've always wondered what exactly Mirai's relationship with her parents was like since she's never mentioned them, but this is not what I was prepared for! No wonder she ran away from home.
If I remember correctly, Imu wanted to make their father proud, but he favored Murasaki because of her root of calamity, and was more proud of her.
maybe he favored her because of something elsecough cough....boobs
He also beat her multiple times to try and get her to fight
And Imu joined in a few times
If anything I bet her father likes Imu more.
That might be a little much, even for me.
This a tricky thing to try and figure out. It really could go either way, because Mirai ran away due to being bullied. We don't know if she tried to tell her parents and they brushed her off or if she simply didn't feel comfortable talking about it and because good shinobi can't kill anyone before they start shinobi training, she opted to go evil so that she could get her revenge.
I can only imagine that since she never laments about it or seems angsty about running away from home that she had a fairly normal family life
that or the writers just forgot to write about it
There's some really, really deep-seated issues that shouldn't go unchecked
Would you get mad if they invented robowaifus with artificial wombs and your friends would get one of your senran because they liked how she looks like without knowing anything else about her?
It probably help ties into why she keeps herself locked up in her room. It's a miracle that she even still cares for Imu, although it could have been that Imu was somewhat forced into participation of her beatings or visibly didn't enjoy it.
I'd feel unsure for a few seconds but then I'd start playing along with it. After all is said and done I'd ask her what that was all about.
I get why she decided to turn evil. I just wonder if she ever misses her old life and her parents or if she's glad to be rid of them. Like how Katsuragi and Yomi miss their parents, and Haruka hates hers.
They probably did forget about it. Too busy with the boob envy jokes.
Where she seems so emotionally disconnected from her family, I figure she either felt neglected at home too or went through a great deal to hide her problems from them.
Even Haruka, who ran away from home too, misses her mother and sometimes wishes she could see her again (she hates the fuck out of her dad though, she probably gets off on the fact that he's rotting away in prison)
Yes, yes, I remember your story. I'm the same Miraifag you've talked about this subject before with.
I don't see quite as many others on /skg/ as I used to...
I don't know about life-sized sex dolls, but small anime-styled dolls are cute. I wouldn't mind owning a doll collection with pretty dresses, but they're not exactly cheap.
Hey there Daidouji fans! You're favorite senran not getting enough new waves.Tired of Rin showing off that hot body and being a sexy teacher? Well have I got the story for you! Another round of Dere Daidouji!
I want to watch haruka have her way with mirai. At this point they were living together for so long that haruka probably knows all of mirais sweet spots and makes her cum in seconds. It would probably go on for hours and mirais head would lie on harukas lap once they are done with her face covered in snot and tears.
That one alcoholic Miraiposter that would post drunk, seemed like he was depressed, and talked about wanting to die a couple times...
Nothing bad happened to him, right?
>Mom goes crazy and gets a literal bucket of holy water
>it doesn't work
>keeps shoving crosses in her face
>it doesn't work
>calls over a priest to exorcise her
>it doesn't work
>the whole time this is happening, Hikage just looks slightly confused
>"Your parents sure are weird, Anon."
And then your parents discover you've had a daughter with her for five years
Hikage becomes sad when you lewd her
Please do not lewd the Hikage
I want Yumi and Ikaruga to give me paizuri while they call me a shameless delinquent pervert!
No, I'm the Kaguni Anon. Alcoholic Miraifag typed like a drunkard, remember? Anyway, I'm sure he's probably just doing things other than posting on /skg/.
She doesn't get sad anon she gets bored
Sometimes she mistakes bored for sad.
is it okay to lewd hikage's daughter?
W-well, she didn't say no! I'm gonna do it!
How about she doesn't? All this talk of castration is a little too extreme even for me.
Silly anon, you can never be too lewd
What is this wizardry?
It happened again!
so i swear. Try it. every time you type "to be honest" in abbreviated form, it changes to "desu".
It's like that one Episode of Danny Phantom where they couldn't stop rhyming when they spoke.
>they will never know the joy of large amounts of lewd!
You and your senran will never enter the MGE universe.
>You will never witness her transition into pure semen demon after she gets turned into a monster.
>You will never be her husband and be chased and fucked relentlessly by her.
>She will not have so much passionate sex with you that you become an all powerful demonic being.
>You will never raise a family of monster girls and scold them for chasing innocent little boys around town.
>Even if you did, you'd probably wake up, realizing she isn't real and it was all a dream.
I love being lewd! I want to coat Ikaruga's soft beautiful body with cum!
>Your penis is repeatedly being sold on the black market so women can attach it and become futas and enjoy sex.
>Haruka keeps you a virgin in her basement.
>You will never get to know to enjoy sex but your penis is being used by others all the time.
You joke about it now anon, but one day Hibari will master her Kagan.Then she'll be the scariest ninjathere is!
>Milfbari is tasked with retrieving intell from a top secret area.
> gets caught out by a high ranking shinobi.
>Mind rapes him by making him die due to suffocation by bunnies.
>Implying Kagan can be given away.
>Implying that if it could, she wouldn't have done so when she first got it since she didn't wanna be a ninja.
Weak shit, anon.
Take your Naruto garbage to /a/
>tfw finding art that you mistake for your senran when it isn't
always a disappointment
Jadf drew makoto from blazblue with a dong and the twitter thumbnail makes it look like Ryouna in her ballerina getup
There is literally a pair of sisters in this series that each received an eyeball from the same donor, what are you even talking about?
And you don't need to have a recipient for them if you just want to rip your own eyes out, I can say that with some authority.
But is the dojutsu the eye itself, or is the brain the important part and the cross-shaped pupil a cosmetic side effect?
>go to sleep one night
What a surprise
I hope her other siblings found success and/or their own squid friend
>Tfw Hibari will become the most powerful and badass Senran one day
And you all called her a retard.
Kagan's never going to be more than flavor for the story stuff. Even if her character develops to the point where she gets comfortable with it, they'll never work it into the moveset of a musou. At most it would be a super where she glares at the enemy real hard and that's difficult to make look cool or intimidating when the eye is pink and flower-shaped.
Hibari could totally die or go blind without that plotline being resolved and it'd be fine. Like I'm not exactly hung up on the mechanics behind Saki's Fuck Off Aura or where Yumi's ice release comes from.
>Yagyu only so obsessed with Hibari because the latter unwittingly lost control of her Kagan and a casual sentence turned into a personality-shredding absolute order
I know what heterochromatic stuff is. Am I remembering the New Hebijo SV route wrong, or didn't someone close to them die then each of them took one of her eyeballs in remembrance?
>At most it would be a super where she glares at th enemy real hard and that's difficult to make look cool or intimidating when the eye is pink and flower-shaped.
Not really. Yall just lack creativity.
Case and point. See>>128029489
Yes you can write a text scenario about why that would be scary but that's different from a short five or so second cinematic cut-in with swoopy anime angles and flashy lights and noises that needs to be contextually appropriate for any number of targets
yes i played the game
Waitin' all day, every day for Miyabi daki. All I gotta do is stay patient and my dreams, and the daki dreams of others may come true.
I don't know anon
If I was watching Hibari glare insidiously at a crowd of mooks and the camera panned out to show all of them keeling over dead because she kagan'd their hearts into exploding I'd probably shit my pants and buy her mr. bunny cakes
That's probably the most interesting way I've ever read someone mis-remember something.
Yes, in SV she was talking to Haruka about her insecurities and admitted to her that the fact that she could just be kaganing people into liking her was always nagging at her.
Haruka explained to her that she knows about the kagan and that it doesn't work that way
or maybe Hibari subconsciously kagan'd her into telling her what she wants to hear
woulda been funny if you got denied your print too
I have a ton of posters I need to get frames for. There are some club nintendo relics kickin around in my room still inside their canadapost packaging
Imu doesn't want fans she wants Miyabi's pussy
>Implying that it wouldn't contextually appropriate for any given scenario when we have Hibari making Ninto's cloud malfunction and creating a thunder storm while she ducks as her current Level 3 ninpo, Katsuragi groping Ikaruga and then being tossed into enemies as their tag ninpo and Yomi literally talking the the enemies about beansprouts to death as her and Hikage's Tag Ninpo.
You just aren't imaginative enough.
Hypnotizing someone into thinking you dropped a meteor on them to kill them is one way of using mind control powers, I guess.
>When Yumi exists.
I mean come on, Asuka you could call plain, but Imu?
This...this actually reminds me of something Nanoha Vivid. There's a character who either use hypnotizing abilities or mind control (one of the two) and she'd use that to defeat her enemies. It's actually a pretty terrifying ability if used competently.
Hibari is a bully! Someone needs to stop her!
>Imu doesn't want fans she wants Miyabi's pussy
Homura doesn't want fans, she wants meat.
Asuka doesn't want fans, she wants more training.
Yumi doesn't want fans, she wants an
Hikage doesn't want fans...or anything for the matter...
BigSis Imu needs love too!
At least Imu has good reasons.
Hell, she took care of everything Miyabi for years, whereas Yagyu is just "this chick is like my dead sister I so want to fuck her I swear I'm not a siscon"
Probably Because Imu is an adult bull dyke lusting over her awkward and sexually ambiguous best friend and Yagyuu is a confused and emotionally needy teenager lusting over her completely oblivious best friend.
Why didn't Xseed localize Puri as several ice-related puns?
Every time I'm trying to stop fapping, I stumble into this thread in the catalog
Well it has more to do with what >>128033464
pointed out. Something about the loyalty Imu has towards Miyabi makes that infatuation seem a lot more believable and well not as creepy with Yagyuu.
While Imu is tough most of the time, she easily becomes dere dere for Miyabi, which is cute. Even in diorama mode she expresses wanting to do poses with Miyabi.
If there's one thing I really really love about Imu in Estival Versus though, it's how when she attacks she makes Bruce Lee sounds. "Ahh-chaa! Wa-chaa!" etc. anytime she finishes a combo.
>check pixiv the other day
>see if there's any new imu art
>picture set of Miyabi and Imu fucking eachother in monkey costumes
okay what the fuck gives, I was NOT holding a god damn monkey paw when I asked for more foreheadXman art
Well, now it's her entire character. Now the only way forward is killing Hibari, or having Hibari get a bit of awareness of Yagyu's creepiness and destroying their relationship over it.
I'd say another route is her reciprocating, but Hibari never ever shows that kind of interest in Yagyu.
Imu's super despite being a staff user is a Destructo Disc, and I will always love her for it.
>If there's one thing I really really love about Imu in Estival Versus though, it's how when she attacks she makes Bruce Lee sounds. "Ahh-chaa! Wa-chaa!" etc. anytime she finishes a combo.
C-Chie?! is that you?
To be fair, the twins were pretty swallow characters in SV so they needed something.
Now, I'm not saying I like that they got the spotlight, but I tolerate it. For now.
That would have had way more impact, yeah, but that feels like it would have been more at home in one of the 3DS games, with less of a pretense of levity.
Alright, first we cripple Hibari and maybe Yagyu gets cancer just cause.
>Nozomi was like 9 and not a ninja
I don't remember their being any rules like "they must be at least Ryoki's age and have been a ninja". If that is the case though, that is some really picky Resurrection spell.
Haruka is cool! I may have called her a chubby dork before, but I take it all back!
Thank god SK2 tried with Hibari and Yagyuu. It was super grand or anything, but it was good to see Hibari tell Yagyuu to back off already. I seriously hope they fire whatever writers did SV
>one of two siblings has other on tight leash
literally with these two
>the other one doesn't really do it due to personal morals, but is too deep in it already
It's basic as shit. Also their whole plan was pretty dumb.
The festival is for putting ninjas to rest.
Hinata could have been an interesting twist (what if it were actually a gang of evil ninja and they got wiped out before Hikage could be properly initiated?) and a way to finally give such a notable character actual screentime outside of references, but Nozomi was a little civilian girl
No no. Anon is right this time, except about them being the only ones. Imu and Murasaki do too, though not as much.
And the plan was fine. They are little girls, not criminal masterminds.
Would seeing Mama Sneg again be enough to make Hikage feel an emotion?
>The festival is for putting ninjas to rest.
So you are telling me that Ryoki's spirit wouldn't ascend to heaven because she was to hung up on leaving her sisters?
Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking. Something like that couldn't happen.
Not surprising. Miyabi's mother couldn't pass on either because her daughter couldn't stop blaming herself. It's somewhat depressing seeing the girls loved ones giving them final goodbyes.
The problem with writing in SV is that half of it is loose canon (Heart stories) and all 4 stories contradict each other several times.
Sure sure, EV kinda mixes bits and bops from all 4, but that doesn't mean there's pure canon here.
And then there's the can of worms that is 3DS games.
Feeling warm inside when someone tells you they like you and treats you nicely for the first time in your miserable life isn't an emotion
At least the 3DS games seem a bit more consistent with things
The biggest one for me being this series of questions: Why did they choose Murakumo, who was under the care of a RENEGADE ninja. An infamous one at that, and how in the ever loving fuck did they find him? I don't think Kat's parents gave that info away. And even if they did it goes right back to question one.
>Senran mothers fighting Yoma.
>Buy enough time for their kids to escape.
>Get absorbed into Yoma.
>Years later reports of Yoma rampaging.
>Kids sent to fight them.
>Mothers are visibly part of the Yoma now.
>Yoma Mothers talk about how pleasurable it is being a Yoma, especially the sexual ecstasy given to them by absorbing humans.
>Ask their kids to join them, to return to mothers womb and how incredible it will feel for both of them.
It's not so much that she thinks she's hideous, as much as her parents' death and being left alone on the street really ruined her confidence and self image. She doesn't think she's ugly as much as she feels like a worthless street urchin
and she does give it up for "good" (and i use quotation marks because I seriously doubt mask-girl is going to run around maskless at any point in the next game) at the end of EV when she speaks to Kurokage's spirit for the last time. She even gives it to him.
Murakumo is distantly related to the Tairo Corp. CEO and was tracked down.
And is that the script in your hand
where did you find the script
what's that pile of scripts doing behind you
no but seriously the fact that they were able to track her down while under the care of a renegade in hiding is kind of a plot hole.
I suppose you could say that they managed to find her while she was enrolled at gessen, then she would have something of a public identity for them to find
They must fight their mothers, kill them to release their souls from the Yoma, so they can finally know peace! Or will they be unable to kill their own mothers and surrender to them?
No. the real problem with the writing in SV is that it attempts to double the cast while pretending that they can seamlessly include them into the narrative.
NewHebi was easy to do and it wrote itself, but Gessen's didn't. 80% of the Hanzo and Gessen stories are spent either just explaining how they fit into this at all or developing Kurokage's character instead of any of the girls. They then trying to connect all the groups together but it doesn't really work out to well.
Just think about everything that had to be done just to validate Gessen's existence and inclusion in the game.
-Make a new school
-Make then all part of the same family.
-Make their guardian have a complex backstory
-Make him Hanzo's long lost rival
-Make Hanzo their secret teacher
-Make one of them Yomi's long lost friend from the slums who so happens to be the adopted eres of a conglomerate just like Ikaruga, whom just so happens to be rivals/friends with Yomi.
-Make Yozakura know the twins, but never elaborate on it.
-Make a giant battle royale thing that doesn't make sense in any context of the world and that never ends up mattering in the grand scheme of things, just to have an excuse for them to fight anyone.
I could go on, but I think you get the point.
>I suppose you could say that they managed to find her while she was enrolled at gessen, then she would have something of a public identity for them to find
In which case, she wouldn't have much reason to be mad at Ikaruga then, now would she?
>Make Yozakura know the twins, but never elaborate on it.
And then there's this. Were they just some scrubs on Gessen, or was the original elite group 7-man strong?
I mean, only Yoza knowing of the twins is pretty dumb. Everyone else of Gessen should have at least some knowledge.
I don't think that only Yozakura knew about them, it's just that the fact that they were enrolled at gessen and probably interacted with the elites was only touched upon in Yozakura's scene
Probably. And I put heavy emphasis on probably. But then, I'm still wondering how they were all able to get into Gessen at all. I don't think anyone would want to take in the adopted children of a renegade. Actually, did they find Murakumo at a young age or not? I recall her telling Ikaruga that she tried to run away back to Kurokage, Which, thinking about it, if he cared about the girls so much why the hell didn't he go trying to get her back? I mean I guess it could be said that it's because he didn't want to jeopardize the other girl's futures, but he's probably pretty fearsome and they'd have given her back for fear of getting their shit kicked in.
>it attempts to double the cast while pretending that they can seamlessly include them into the narrative
I will always defend this argument. Original 12 in Burst was pretty tightly knit, except for really Daidouji but that's whole nother thing. They introduced them one at a time, we saw some interaction, and then developed some.
Doubling the amount of characters out of the blue was pretty bad idea. They should've just introduced one new school, and even that is stretching it.
They seem to have wised since, with SK2 only having 2 new ones, neither playable, and EV with 5.
I know what I'd do. If Mirai was turned into a Youma and told me to become one with her, I'd have no choice but to let her absorb me. I can't disobey her, and I definitely can't kill her!
-Make Kurokage the reason Kat's parents are renegade.
-Make Kat's parents the reason the Gessen girls are still alive.
>Make Yozakura have part of the same armour set as Kat.
>Make Yozakura almost kill Kat.
Then she exfiltrates home and eats Mr. Bunny cookies with her husband and four kids.
Haruka works night guard duty at the Gessen husband dungeon!
There's no reasons to live, but I don't really want to die either
Guess I'll go fap again
Damn it, you're right! No matter how many shinobi Yōmirai absorbs, she wouldn't grow any boobs.
Only a monster would kill their Senran! What's the point of going on living after you've allowed your waifu to die? At least our souls could still be together if I let her eat me. Maybe our consciousnesses would blend together and we'd lose our sense of self, but we'd still be together, and that's what's most important.
>Not killing the Yoma.
>Not freeing Mirai's immortal soul from the Yoma.
>Allowing her to exist in eternal torment as part of a Yoma.
>Allowing your own soul to be nothing more than food.
You pathetic weak fool, you failed your self and more importantly you failed Mirai!
I hope there are numerous occasions where she gets too nervous and has to hide her face in something
I expect at least one instead of Murakumo stuffing her face in someone's boobs
I always figured that she will eventually not need the mask and her two personas meet somewhere in the middle. She gets a new one that's he just puts on for rule of cool, or when she is going into serious mode.
>Let characters develop, with development carrying over from game to game.
"Aww! These Senran's stories are finished now. They are boring!"
>Don't let characters develop.
"They keep using the same clichés! They are so boring!"
>Let characters develop but reset them every game.
"They are using the same stories again and again! They are boring!"
N-no, you're wrong! The guy's post I was replying to said that being a youma was pleasurable. Is being eaten by a youma really that bad? I think we need to take a step back and analyze the facts again from an unbiased, objective perspective, then weigh the pros and cons.
Never seen it but that argument is pretty shit. You could've said that after every game after it ended. You can think of something. The characters still haven't completed yet.
Senran Kagura Z
with the characters that are already well developed, I think that merely seeing them progress through the games plots would be enough.
Like Hibari and Haruka, and Yagyu and Mirai in SK2 for example. There was no epic or tearjerking backstories for either pairing, they just went about the missions being themselves, playing off eachother and goofing off, and those are the two most memorable parts of SK2 to many people.
I agree but there are some Anons that argue that their stories are done, they have graduated, can not possibly ever develop as characters again and seeing them is now boring. So we should dump them and then see new students come into the schools.
Personally I would rather see them go out into the real world now and see how they develop outside of a high school setting.
It is the school setting that needs dropped, not the characters.
I believe they did. Homura was training and whenever she got sweaty she jumped into the bath to clean herself. Yags finds her and they have a sparring match, after which Yagyuu tells her the bath is closed and Homu has to go to bed stinky and sweaty. I think that's the only time Yagyuu and Homu ever speak to one another.
>It is the school setting that needs dropped, not the characters.
Exactly. They have pretty much delayed their graduation twice now. Lets see what the real shinobi world is like for once.
At least we've got Homura's crew that's too cool for school.
I think the problem is less that their arcs are done and more that trying to create meaningful story arcs and development for 20+ characters in a game primarily developed for fanservice is pretty much impossible
The other problem is that the setting is nonsensical and retarded in a lot of ways, and the writers don't seem to collaborate on some of the details
I want to glaze those nante nes
Is Kumo white or just white passing Asian?
I didn't mean it like that, I just haven't really had the money to get one since I'm broke all the time. I really would like to get one though for MH and SMTIV
Because they're composed of the five best girls.
Wait a minute. Where have I seen that headband before?
Technically no, but it is much better to have played Burst before going into DC since it picks up at the ending of the first game.
It also makes it so you can appreciate the improvements.
It's kind of amazing how they played up the big happy family theme for gessen, and then the only characters that interacted with eachother at all with Kumo and Shiki and Yo and Minori
Hanzo would be fine, but it feels like Hibari and Yagyuu are cut off from the other three
For a group that's supposed to be a family Gessen mostly just seem to get dragged around by Puri and have more to do with Kurokage than each other
remember to put your senrans to bed early so they can start the next day bright and early
I think that's the most hilarious thing about Gessen. I know who's a part of Gessen but whenever I see them in a group picture, just feels wrong, like they don't go together at all.
Okay shithead, you made me laugh.
I'm tired of waking up every morning with no snake gf. I am tired of not being about to buy a body pillow because of my chad roommate. Why is life so terrible
have fun waking up at supertime loser!
To me it's just another strike against those dipshit 'writers' of SV. The Hanzo girls had a whole little chapter dedicated to a family tree project, and how Ikaruga was completely depressed (Though hiding it) because she lacked a real connection to her family and what all we saw of her family (Murasame) hated her guts and said they'd never be family. Then Auska being the absolute sweetheart she is drew Ikaruga and everyone else into her family tree. Hell I think she even drew Kiriya into it. Crimson do a good job too as they all bond and grow to really trust and adore one another to the point that they become hobos together when Homura was the only one who needed to.
Then you've got New Hebijo who...well most of their team are related to one another in a way, so that probably helps things a bit (them nearly self-destructing on one another ultimately helped bring them closer) but in the case of Gessen we never really get any touching scenes like the one Hanzo had at all. As much as I absolutely hate that none of them call Yumi out on her shit, I'd have let it slide if during their fight, as Asuka is ready to keep fighting Yumi they all stand in front of Yumi. Broken,battered, ready to fall, but due to their 'strong bonds' they stand there anyway.
>tfw you'll never get to fix the shit "story" of the sk series
It really is. You look at Hanzo and see a group of friends that get along and play off eachother, with Yagyuu being the only one that's really isolated.
Crimson is like a big family of girls that have known eachother since they were kids, and just by looking at any pairing among them you can figure out exactly what makes those two characters friends.
New Hebi is a bit less tightly knit overall, but Miyabi Imu and Saki all have a tangible relationship, and while Ryoubi and Ryouna are somewhat isolated like Yagyuu and Hibari, seeing them interact with the rest of their team never feels unnatural.
Meanwhile, gessen. Murakumo and Shiki are best friends. Yozakura mothers Minori. I very very briefly summarized the other teams, but here I fucking wrote a thorough manuscript about gessen's entite team dynamic. I have no idea what would happen if you locked Shiki in a room with Yumi, or if Murakumo and Minori spent 5 minutes together.
as a fan of tabletop rolepaying games I would love to see what would happen if the senrans were teleported into a swords and sorcery world where everything is medieval times with dragons and wizards and knights and shit.
That's one way to look at it too.
Plus Yagyuu's major character trait is that she's a stoic and solemn young girl that only ever opens up to her emotional foil. It's alright if her relationship with the other girls is a little more curt, and that can lead into her being the straight man to the other girls' antics along with Ikaruga, who's more of a serious character
The fact that Yumi has no chemistry with anyone, even on her own team, is what really rubs me the wrong way
Being excessively shoehorned into all media through the eleven's shit tastes is just the icing on the cake
>Yo and Minori
I'll give you Kumo and Shink, but these two dont do much. Yo tells Mino to pick up her toys once. Thats it. You would think that their whole Mom and kid thing would be easy to write interactions for them but like Gessen in general, nothing happens here.
