Title: Ahriman's personal blog for animu and things tangentially related to it
Post by: Ahriman on 08 February, 2011, 12:08:45 am
Because I feel like playing some and there's no more relevant board, so I'll just comment here for the one or two people interested. I've long passed on making a topic like this to comment on things as everyone else on this board has done but whatever.

Currently reading Heaven's Feel, currently in the church talking to Kotomine about Kiritsugu. Not much to say so far, a lot of the scenes up to now were lifted from UBW, got to see Shirou dreaming of swords and visiting that park for the billionth time. Notably Saber brought up how Kiritsugu was her Master in the previous war which I don't remember her saying in the other routes despite having a lot of time to say it, but I may be forgetting.

I'm pretty sure that was stated in Fate at some point, but I really don't care for the idea of remembering Fate.

There are a bunch of shitty visual novels for other series now.

So I say it's time for a bunch of shitty Touhou visual novels.

With actual canon characterization.

If it's canon, then Aya will be the main character. In other words, **** no, this should never be allowed to exist.

Get 4chan to make it. They made Katawa Shoujo after all.

Speaking of which, Maniac, did you ever play that?

lolshinji

Like, every other character in the entire game thinks that he's a ****. Whenever he gets killed or worse, the person who hand delivers him that fate looks like a total badass. So yeah, I'm not getting why Shirou gives two fucks about the prick or even trusts him on occasion.

Lancer never gets to do anything.

Well, unless we're talking about UBW, and even then he doesn't get a whole lot. Lancer deserves more screentime than Caster at least. >_>

HF Kotomine is made of awesome.

So, I'm replaying Fate right now (first time I've played F/sn with voices). I hate this route so much... ohohohoh Ahriman, which do you like better, Tsukihime or Fate/stay night?

Ctrl through Fate.

I like FSN more. Only parts of Tsukihime I really liked were Hisui and Kohaku's routes and the scenario up to Nrvnqsr Chaos on Arcueid/Ciel's routes.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 09 February, 2011, 09:30:22 pm
Huh. I vastly prefer Tsukihime for its atmosphere and all of the world-building materials that Nasu has put into it, but I'm in the minority. For some reason, I don't like the concept of Fate/stay night, though the execution is admittedly better than how it would sound. It has better characters than Tsukihime does, but I just feel more comfortable playing Tsukihime.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 09 February, 2011, 09:43:50 pm
I've seen a lot of people say that they prefer Tsukihime. My best understanding as to why is that they played it first.

Rabbit's corpse. One eye missing. Rotten, soft, and fresh. Forced into my mouth. Rabbit's corpse smears my esophagus. A clear sensation of eating life. Life is life, even if is rotten. Its real. I can't taste this with cooked food. It feels good. There's no taste. But I'm forced to eat it as long as it is in front of me. A popular place. A big line. A place that will eat rabbits. There is only one clerk. The line consists of rabbits. Lines and lines. They rot as soon as they get in the line. Infested with maggots. Which is rotten? Which is infested with maggots? Which is alive? Which is doing the eating-

I always love Nasu's text vomit.

I am crushed by the thing seeping in through all five senses.

Darkness I cannot look at directly.

That bad end you get for not talking to Sakura makes it pretty obvious what the "shadow" is.


She has to hurry home, ready the bath, ouch, laugh off all the fatigue, that hurts, let her hair dry, it hurts, watch some videos, return to her room room room room it hurts she wants to return to her room return return return return please, please stop, stay up till three o'clock, it really hurts, anything, please stop, please stop it hurts it hurts it hurts wake up with an alarm clock, go back it hurts go to work go back go back go back.

It means that Shirou will live a god-awful life, just like Kiritsugu did.

EDIT: It's also an active betrayal to everyone who cares about him in some way, especially Ilya. I'd include Sakura, but since she's immediately going to die because of that choice, it's not something that will linger with her.

You would think that if he wants to do that he could figure out less **** ridiculous ways to get them across than recharging magic or SUPPRESSING ROA. And also make the writing less stupid but I guess that's just what Nasu does.

Post by: Ahriman on 12 February, 2011, 11:10:19 pm
I thought the last few days after Sakura flips were great, she's a much better character when she's insane. Before that is was mostly okay with a few good parts. The last day was pretty fantastic. Zouken and Assassin were for the most part not very interesting antagonists, Assassin is pretty much the most boring Servant next to Caster.

Tomorrow. I just spent all day reading this.

Alright. Gotta say, I started Fate again about two months ago and I haven't finished it to this day, so I feel obligated to say that you're nuts.

why would you reread this


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 12 February, 2011, 11:22:19 pm
This is my first time with the voice patch, so I figured that it would change my perception of a few characters. I was somewhat correct: I ended up liking Taiga and Sakura a lot more with the voice patch, but I usually found myself cutting lines short.

I liked UBW's final fight more. Awesome Kotomine is pretty awesome though.

Can you understand why Kotomine is my second favorite character?

ohyes Jouji Nakata as Kotomine was also amazing, but I already liked him, someh

Yeah he came pretty far from how he was in Fate.

Saber is not better than Taiga. Hell, Saber is pretty much the worst female in the entire game. I even like Caster more than her; at least Caster is well-dressed.

Since you've read some Umineko spoilers (I least I think you have), predictions for favorite characters?


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 13 February, 2011, 12:09:11 am
I've read very few Umineko spoilers, I don't know much outside of what I saw in the animu, and just from that I like Beatrice.

I skipped ahead to eating dinner because I read most of the stuff before that, and I'm ctrling often because there's a lot of nothing going on, so hopefully I get to things happening relatively fast.

The one that sounds almost like it came out of a scene involving a detective? Fishy Aroma. I've seen it called Suspicious Fragrance, but Fishy Aroma is Witch Hunt's translation.

Don't even need to check. That's goldenslaughterer, the first of zts's eight special tracks. If that sounded good, you'll be pleased to know that it's the second to last of the eight in quality.

EDIT: I hate George and all of the kids. George gets special hate for reasons that you'll see later.

At the second twilight, those who remain shall tear apart the two who are close.

All the interesting characters are dead.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 15 February, 2011, 11:18:17 pm
EP1 is more horror that anything, so it's almost kind of unique in that way. Of course, there are only traces of that in EP2 and by EP3, it's pretty much gone. Though yeah, Umineko is a shitty mystery, but it has secondary elements that might make up for it depending on the situation (see EP3, EP7, climaxes of EP5 and EP6, maybe EP4). Honestly, I prefer playing it for the everything BUT the mystery, and since almost every person who debated Umineko on terms of it being a mystery now hates the series after playing EP8, that's probably the best course of action.

As for interesting characters, you'll love EP3 and EP5 in that case. A good deal of the shitty and worthless characters die on the first twilight for both. On the other hand, you're going to hate EP2 and EP6, since they're all about those **** kids and their worthless relationships. You're probably going to ctrl through 90% of each.

That was mostly weekend. It I don't finish in today or tomorrow or Friday of course I'll finish on Saturday, probably read through Ep 2 over the weekend to at least.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 16 February, 2011, 10:53:41 pm
Actually, I was going to say that, if you were having problems playing EP1, you should skip EP2 and just rely on your knowledge of the anime to cover it. Or rather, unlock EP3 and go to like, the last chapter of EP2 in order to watch Rosa be badass and go from there.

Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 16 February, 2011, 11:59:20 pm
It's sort of a shame, since EP8 sounds pretty decent otherwise. But then again, Umineko has always been a subpar mystery and has always been better as a story in general.

I am now using this topic to talk about whatever obscure **** I feel like because

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6APUJYxw1Q#t=2m00s

Quote

Say hello to Zatsuza.

Zatsuza is from the shmup Do-Don-Pachi Dai-Fukkatsu. The game came out in 2008. The boss has been in there since the beginning, but no one knew it existed until like a week ago because the requirements to access it are insane. There were rumors for years that there was a boss called Zatsuza because there was a song named that on the game's OST. This is how you access it:

First you have to beat the game a first time, while meeting certain conditions to access the 2nd loop. There are two second loops, the Tsujou and Ura. Ura is the hard, true second loop, and to access it you have to collect all 45 bee items and clear the game having lost only one life and used 2 bombs or less.

There is a secret boss you can only access at the end of the 2nd loop called Golden Disaster. To face Golden Disaster, bomb no more than twice in the first five stages OR defeat at least two stage bosses at Reddo Gauge MAX. Reddo Gauge is a gauge that fills up when you fire your laser and regular shot at the same time. When it gets to max, the number of enemy attacks increases.

If you beat Golden Disaster with a maximum of 1 death, 2 bombs in stages 1-5, and you defeat every boss before it with Reddo gauge at maximum, you get to fight a second secret boss, Hibachi.

If you meet the requirements for Hibachi and haven't died for the entire game (both loops), you finally get to fight Zatsuza.

So basically Zatsuza is a secret boss, that you have to beat a secret boss to fight, and only if you beat the entire game without dying once, otherwise you get something different. That's why it was only discovered a week ago.

What the **** Cave

Also Rosa beating Maria again shityeah

3 hours later Battler shows up for the first time.

Though it's not like I didn't see this coming, of course. No matter which branch I ended up on, I was going to visit the other anyway, so it's not a set-back.

So, my copy of Umineko PS3 arrived today. I got a trophy just for starting episode 1, and there's a trophy for **** around with config. lulz

...come to think of it, this is the first PS3 game that I've purchased since I bought the system almost a year ago.

I bought six games when I got my PS3, so...

I think that I'll order a few more today, before it becomes too late.

EDIT: No wait, I bought MGS4 about 6 months ago.

Oh, speaking of Happy Halloween, you're going to be reminded of Nasu works when you read it.

Too relevant to what was happening for Nasu-level text vomit. Also there was a constant usage of two exclamation points which is dumb, nobody uses two you can only use one or three.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 25 February, 2011, 12:01:00 am
Ryukishi adores the use of two exclamation marks, but that's neither here nor there. What is relevant is that Luca Blight uses hundreds of exclamation marks in every one of his sentences, and are you going to tell him that he's wrong?

You've always been pretty neutral about your comments, so are you at least enjoying a select few scenes?


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 25 February, 2011, 12:08:05 am
Luca Blight can use as many exclamation points as he wants because he's Luca **** Blight.

My enjoyment of a scene is just about directly proportional to how much I like the music that's playing, and whether I like the characters present. (which pretty much means Beatrice and Rosa. Some of the others are okay but not so much that they particularly improve a scene) I don't really dislike any part of it though past the introduction, its a decent enough story to maintain my interest. I probably would've liked Happy Halloween more if I didn't already know it was happening too, so next episode when things start being new it should get better.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 25 February, 2011, 12:11:38 am
So, the anime essentially ruined any and all major moments in both of these episodes unless good music was playing?

System 0 was shafted harder that absolutely any other song in Umineko. It is unfortunately not in EP3-8 and Tsubasa, and for this reason, it cannot be found in the music box for any of the Chiru games.

Post by: Ahriman on 25 February, 2011, 04:37:58 pm
Battler lost the game hard. Of course he created an unwinnable situation for himself in trying to suspect that nobody committed the murder so I guess it was inevitable.

Post by: Ahriman on 02 March, 2011, 12:40:30 am
I think its far better than the previous two episodes, easily. Its feels like it dispenses with a lot of the things Ryukishi was going for in the first two episodes and takes a completely different approach, and it reads a lot better for it. There's more time spent in metaspace and more magic **** going on and stuff, its a lot more fun to read than anything going on with just the family and servants.

I don't love Eva-Beatrice so sorry to disappoint there. I like her more than a good majority of the cast, but that's because I don't really like a good majority of the cast. She's kind of a huge ****.

I did say at one point that she had the best facial expressions, and I meant that. Of course, I never said anything about that being in an ironic sense or not, so...

She's a gigantic **** who more than earns her complete monster stripes, but she's **** hilarious at the same time for that reason. She's unrelentingly evil and more importantly, she's a total **** on top of it, yet it's so hard to take the combination of a psychotic little tyke and facial expressions like that seriously. That and there's the entire second twilight, which is amazingly awesome and hilarious at the same time; it's also the only scene where she gets a narration, and it's completely deranged.

Eva-Beatrice's greatest accomplishment is making everyone that opposes her look awesome by comparison.

That's pretty much impossible to deny, but that's a great role regardless. Even if she's not considered an awesome character, it's undeniable that she makes EP3 awesome. It's hard to hate her as a character for that reason, even if you're appalled by her terrible personality and her horrendous actions.

That face is amazing.

So, how funny is it that Battler still managed to lose to Eva-Beatrice in spite of the fact that he has more experience and his pseudo-badass act. He deserved to get hit by the revelation that Beato is the biggest magnificent bastard in Umineko.

Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 02 March, 2011, 06:46:47 pm
Yup. Also, the ending scene with Beato is, bar none, my favorite scene in all of Umineko. Holy ****, she's a total magnificent ****.

You don't like Evatrice for her personality, but do you like her for the statement that you made earlier about her? If you tiered her, where would she be? Alsoalsoalso, rate EP3.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 02 March, 2011, 06:54:54 pm
Evatrice would probably be high-mid tier somewhere. Her involvement in the logic battle at the end brought her up some, and she did her job as a supervillain well.

EP3 is like >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> EPs 1 and 2. 9-9.5/10, wouldn't give it 10 because it was still pretty slow to build up. Also Beatrice's reformation turning out to be a massive troll is pretty bullshitty despite being hilarious.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 02 March, 2011, 07:00:05 pm
She was sincere all along.

oops whoops spoilers. Well, I'm the only person who would rank Evatrice as high as I do, so I guess that's pretty fortunate. I don't think that I have met anyone who thinks that my love for her is logical.

Anyway. EP4 is pretty much the most divisive episode in the series, so enjoy either completely hating half of it or liking it almost as much as EP3. I can guarantee that you'll find yourself in the former group, so if you're interested in doing anything else, now is the time.

This is really awkward when its voiced, since Ryukishi is very of overdramatic monologues; Kinzo's introduction deserves a special mention for... obvious reasons. BEATORIIIIIIIIICHIIIIIEIIII~

Play EP5.

I really don't know why Battler is so popular besides being the protagonist; as far as quality goes, he is so incredibly inconsistent. He oscillates from being really awesome at one point and completely failing at another, but his biggest problem is that the former trait finds its roots in the plot instead of in his character. He spontaneously acts badass out of nowhere, which is nice, but it's never something that I credit to him as much I give to the plot. When he fails, it's definitely something that comes from him, because he's incompetent. Beato oscillates from awesome to sucky as well, but at least all of her awesome moments are in character for her.

Does Ange's story matter at all in the long run? How long does it take? Is it one big chunk or will it switch between Rokkenjima and 1998?


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 15 March, 2011, 11:08:18 pm
The set-up to 1998 is certain, pretty much one of the only certain things in Umineko. Eva did survive the Rokkenjima incident, she did become Ange's guardian, and presumably everything that happened between them before 1998 actually happened as well. Ange's disposition towards her situation is important for EP8, but her adventure during 1998 isn't really important. It takes up about 2/5 of the episode when combined with a side-arc featuring Maria before the Rokkenjima incident that branches from it. The episode alternates between Ange's future and 1986, but Ange's story slows down and wraps itself up for a while just before 1986 gets going. The conclusion to Ange's story occurs later, but doesn't really interrupt anything (and it's pretty much the best part of it).

Virgilia is pretty damn different in EP4, but I don't think that you're going to predict how she'll act correctly. Of course, she really does act like she did in EP3, as she's back to being that way in EP5.

There's a playthrough on B8 that's at roughly the same place as you are. Here are his comments on Goldsmith:

Quote
THE HORROR RANKINGS
Bloody Goat Teeth + Mashing/Gnashing Sounds
Kinzo Crazy Eyes <*NEW*
Virgilia Stare
Tales of Vore (See: Ep.2 Tea Party)
Unexpected Beatrice Giggle
Beatrice Wide Eyed Grin
Massive Amounts of Blood
Beatrice Wide Eyed Cackle
Crazy Maria Face (I can't remember it, but she definitely had to have had one by now)
Stressed Out Natsuhi

Quote
No. No it's not the best.

It's the worst. It's pure, unadulterated Nightmare Fuel.

I'm really, really hoping Kinzo's actually dead and that's just some freakish meat puppet.

I'm actually not because that's terrifying, but at least I can make sense of it if it's like that

Quote
- So Crazy Eyed Kinzo is known as Goldsmith. That's... whatever. Just please go back to normal.
- NO **** YOU! DON't POP UP LOOKING NORMAL THEN BUG YOUR EYES YOU FREAK! STOP IT! STOP IT!
- HA! Your evil stare can't pass through layers of Post-It notes! So I can't read 1/4 of the words, I WILL PASS BY YOU!
- DAMMIT DON'T MOVE AROUND!
- **** Don't come to dinner, don't come to dinner, don't don't don't


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing

Up to THE TEST. Its pretty obvious that Kinzo would choose the third option, and considering they have to pick one and that this is a test of inheritance, it shouldn't be that hard to just pick that. Better than not choosing anything, at least.

The end to that fight was such bullshit, Gaap is such a cheater.

Character and music rankings to come after the tea parties. (first one isn't much of a tea party what gives) Might do them tomorrow, music will almost certainly have to wait for tomorrow, characters will depend on how long the tea parties take.

That wasn't cheating. That was how it's supposed to be. George acts tough and cocky, and gets his ass handed to him brutally; it's a source of endless amusement considering that he's the worst character in the **** series.

Battler says a lot of blue, giant stakes come out, fly at Beato and impale her, and Beato resists about a third of the time that she should have. All on top of some shitty version of Victima Propiciatoria instead of Dreamend Discharger, though I decided to play DED on top of the video after a few seconds to make it more entertaining.

There a whole lot of other problems I have with the list, but at least I could understand what you were thinking. But Wingless down there? Get ****, you ****.

Are my or that guy on B8 that's ranking Umineko music's opinions better? I was pulling names of songs from that topic and saw you posted there a few times. (and Ermine apparently)


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 20 March, 2011, 05:18:53 am
Yours are better, but I can't really discern what grade you're giving to each song, so I dunno. To be fair, nobody took his list that seriously, though generally for reasons that I wouldn't agree with, so...

Also, something is very wrong if you don't get the English names from clicking on the song titles.

Why not argue with my list, just for kicks?


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 20 March, 2011, 05:29:59 am
Maybe I have an old patch or something, I dunno.

I can't really argue with any placement on your list besides wingless. I like all the other songs and I'm not enough of a nitpicky douche to argue because a song that's awesome is over a song that's almost as awesome.

hawhaw

It's impossible that you'd have an old patch that would do that unless a portion of EP4's text was entirely incomplete. That's more of an installation error.

Anyway, I'm listening to EP8 music. Without proper context, I can't really get going when listening to them, so I'm going to make estimates. Lastend Conductor will probably get third place, Revelations (inst, vocals suck) might be somewhere on that list, and nothing else will be in my top twenty:

Hishou is on the edge of being on it, but it fuses the meh parts of Touhou tracks and all of dai's battle themes from EP4 to create something that's better, but still iffy.
LixAxil has a good sound, but an incredibly monotonous opening, and it repeats too quickly; it's like half a minute of "okay," half a minute of bad and a minute of "eh, decent."
More Fear is better than any other version of Dread of the Grave, that doesn't suddenly make it amazing when every other Dead of the Grave was meh.

It doesn't look like any -45 tracks are on here, and there are only 11 tracks, so lolfailsoundtrack

Willard H. Wright

Upper-Mid Tier - (7/10):

Lower-Mid Tier - (6/10):

Erika
Maria
Mammon
The rest of the stakes
Dlanor
Gaap
Rosa
Battler
Zepar and Furfur

"Don't Really Give Much Of A Damn About You" Tier (4-5/10):

Kumasawa
Sakutaro
Gertrude
All of the Siestas

George

why is kasumi over people


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 24 March, 2011, 04:45:35 pm
Because she doesn't actively decrease the quality of the VN; she's just some random douche who gets killed in one episode and is never seen again. Everyone below her, on the other hand...

Well, Cornelia doesn't do anything to the quality of the VN, but I hate her anyway. Everyone else actually does make every episode in which they're prominently featured worse, though.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 24 March, 2011, 04:46:52 pm
Also George isn't that bad.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 24 March, 2011, 04:52:24 pm
Also George isn't that bad.

Shut your **** mouth.

His relationship with Shannon is the worst aspect of Umineko (or it was, up until Shannon was revealed to be a persona for his crossdressing crazy of an aunt/uncle who is in love with Battler; unhappy ending for George, yay!); he gains some cool points in EP4 only to completely lose them by the end with his encounter Gaap, and proceeds to fail even more in EP6, where he reveals that he's perfectly willing to kill his mother just to prove that he's a big boy now. That has to be the most pathetic display in all of Umineko, and the author has the gall to be on his side.

Trying to get custom firmware on my PSP. There's a ONScripter emulator, so if all goes well I'll be able to read Umineko during downtime while I'm gone. Whether I'll actually do that or not will have to wait though, the main priority is to get ISOs running so I can have a whole new library of games to exhaust.

lolno

I am surprised that you tolerated Ange. I actually liked her as well (though she sucks in every other episode, and from what I've heard and read from episode 8, she's even worse there), but a whole load of people hated her guts. I'll rate and rank them right now:

1) - 7.5/10 - I actually kinda liked all of the scenes that contributed to its poor pacing, and EP1 actually made a pretty good horror story. I don't really want to play it again, hence why I haven't done anything with PS3 Umineko, but I still enjoyed it and managed to finish it in 3-4 days.
2) - 5.5/10 - Oh god, I hate Shannon and Kanon so much. Beato's banter with Battler was mildly amusing, but it failed to balance out the fact that everything on the gameboard managed to be the second worst in the entire series. Of course, everything from the 10th Twilight on was pretty cool.
3) - 9/10 - I don't need to explain this one, but I will. I love Eva-Beatrice more than I should and it's a shame that she never becomes important enough to even have a TIPs panel in any other episode (Except for 8). Still, as much as I love her, I loved every scene that culminated at her expense. Everything from Battler versus Evatrice on was completely and utterly amazing. The only problem with this one is that the first half was tolerable, but meh.
4) - 8.5/10 - I don't mind Ange's story and by the end of 1998, I ended up really liking her, but her story interrupts what's probably the best gameboard in the entire series. But yeah, I loved the joke gameboard with all of its shonen cliches and Goldsmith's absolutely ridiculous personality. Everything after it ended was pretty cool too, and you're obligated to cheer for Battler when he manages to not lose for the first time in all of Umineko.

-------

5) - 7/10
6 - 5.5/10
7) - 9/10

7 >= 3 > 4 > 1 > 5 > 6 >= 2.

I'll say my piece about the Chiru episodes as you go.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 01 April, 2011, 03:58:15 pm
I don't understand what there is to hate about Ange. I thought her last scene when dir was playing was one of the best scenes in the series. Most of her story wasn't very interesting except the end and the last scene that happened with her at the private school where she was rejecting magic and stuff, but that doesn't make her any worse as a character.

(though she sucks in every other episode, and from what I've heard and read from episode 8, she's even worse there)

Well it kind of cheapens her ending if she can come back.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 01 April, 2011, 04:07:22 pm
Well... she doesn't come back for most of the series. She just ends up being played with and tortured by Featherine and Bernkastel. EP8 is different, though.

There's a better example for a character who isn't Ange: In EP6, Erika gets a pretty cool death that actually looks fairly respectable; it's really the only moment where she does anything cool in the entire series and it's actually a pretty fair place to retire her as a character. In EP8, She's brought back just so that she can do nothing of note.

Ryukishi is pretty bad when it comes to deciding when to put down characters.

Now go play EP5 and introduce yourself to the biggest prick in Umineko.

EDIT: So, I played a bit of UBW and every time I look at the character sprites, I don't ****ing care for any of Takeuchi's designs outside of "woah, it's another character who looks exactly like Ryougi Shiki." I mean, they're better drawn than anything in Umineko, but they're so generic that I would end up comparing Umineko's art favorably. Would you agree with me that, in this sense, Umineko's art is better than Fate/stay night's?


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ƨɒlƚy on 02 April, 2011, 02:34:06 pm
So the only thing you're making fun of is the main character's uninspired design?


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 02 April, 2011, 02:53:49 pm
No, the only thing worthy of making fun of when it comes to Takeuchi's art is the fact that he's fond of recycling character designs:

- Shirou looks exactly like Tomoe.
- Kotomine looks like Araya with a healthy skin tone.
- Sakura looks like Fujino.
- Kuzuki looks somewhat like Kurogiri.
- Tohno Shiki looked exactly like the original design for Mikiya; that was changed for the KnK movies.
- Nrvnqsr looks like Araya with shorter, gray hair.
- Akiha looks like Azaka.
- Arcuied looks like Ryougi Shiki.
- Ayako looks like Ryougi Shiki.
- Canaan looks like Ryougi Shiki.

...and hell, I know that I'm missing some other characters. I mean, I can suspend my standards when playing Umineko and go "holy ****" at several of the faces, but I can't do anything with Takeuchi's designs because they're so generic.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 09 April, 2011, 11:01:11 am
Oh sorry forgot to respond to that. Yeah obviously Type-Moon designs are highly repetitive, but I've never really minded and I like the cooler ones like Dark Sakura.

Haven't actually said where I've been yet. I was in London for a few days, and right now I'm in Paris. I should be officially back sometime one Tuesday, I've been posting from my phone recently when I'm not busy.

Anyway, I wasn't busy today so I decided to seek out a manga shop and other stuff along the way. It's unbelievable how much manga there was, there's probably more that was officially translated into French in that store than even exists officially translated into English. Also I knocked down a tower of boxes of figures and stuff. Anyways I bought a Revoltech Gurren Lagann so it was cool, French weeaboos are pretty chill.

I could do that before playing Umineko and did. I guess that validates it though.


I guess I could mention that I read some of EP5 off my phone before it crashed and I couldn't continue. Not much had occurred, the point it ended at was Rudolf and Kyrie talking about how Kinzo was probably dead IIRC. Nothing much to mention about it.

Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 12 April, 2011, 08:19:51 pm
I have no idea how Reinforce is even something somebody can be a fan of. I can see how someone might like Eva-Beatrice just because she's amusing I guess.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 12 April, 2011, 08:24:14 pm
Reinforce's voice is absolutely, unrelentingly sexy. I cannot think of any character who has a better voice that Reinforce because I have never encountered one. The fact that she pretty awesome in combat (all 1 battle that she participates in!) adds to it. But honestly, what was your reaction to my fanboyism for Evatrice after you played EP3?


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 12 April, 2011, 08:27:33 pm
I didn't think much of it but still fully intended to hate on her just because you like her. She's a ****, but really that's no reason to think that nobody could like her, apparently people do.

(all 1 battle that she participates in!)

I don't even remember this. I should watch A's again.

Evatrice is a bitch, but she's adorable, amusing, has an amazing outfit and loving her is great way to disturb you. Oh, and...

I think that Erika is the only character who can be called a complete monster without the need for a spoiler. Bern being one is a reveal, Eva-Beatrice's entire existence is sorta considered a spoiler and there's another one later on that comes out from left field. But Erika?

spoilers you're a total ****ing idiot if you think that i cant read "mid-tier." Which is basically the same thing in the end, it's like the trash bin for characters.

He only likes Eva-Beatrice for her outfit that Erika lacks even though hers is better anyways.

I like her because she's completely, utterly and totally fucking insane. I'd still think she's cute if that was taken from her, but I wouldn't like her nearly as much. Erika isn't insane; she's an unlikable malignant tumor of a ****, and not in Eva-Beatrice' amusing "WAHAHAHA ENDLESS WITCH" kind of way, but in a realistic way.

Second day has begun, generally underwhelmed so far but that's typical. Best part is MORE 34 AND BERNKASTEL for sure.

Far as I can tell this game board is a more typical mystery situation and the mysteries in this are bullshit because there's so much that could possibly be going on.

It's spoilers because Bern is portrayed for the first half as pretty mellow and emotionless and being on Battler's side, and then ate the end of the first half she turns out to be evil and insane as she appears in this profile. Of course, the impact of that is somewhat lessened by how one of the first things she says is that she is the cruelest witch, but whatever.

Because:

1) fanon!Erika is a complete and utter perverted rapist.
2) Erika wears a school swimsuit in game, though she doesn't have any sprites with it.
3) The school swimsuit makes her look significantly more perverted.

Post by: Maniac234678 on 26 April, 2011, 01:58:55 pm
Umineko 5 will be ready by midnight. This is gonna be a good night.

EDIT: IT IS DONE

When They Cry 4, here we come!

EDIT: EDIT: MOON TOURISM IN 1986

This is significantly less flattering towards Krauss than every other negative depiction of him combined.
To describe how retarded Krauss is, Natsuhi has enough sense to call him out on every bad idea he makes and is just short of calling him an idiot. Ten minutes later, Natsuhi runs out of the room and experiences a delusion in the form of ghost Kinzo. Come on, Krauss, you were such a badass in EP4.
Also, simply by the fact that Erika is an intellectual rapist, this level of reasoning is possible for Furudo Erika. ......what do you think, everyone? <Good.>

EDIT: A <GROTESQUE> <POP> AND <CUTE> MURDER CASE
- Erika is definitely far out there as a complete monster. She and her master make Evatrice look like a saint.
- While she does nothing but cling onto delusions, Natsuhi is still a grade-A badass. I was pissed off at her in EP1, but after EP5, just about everything has been forgiven.
- EP5 has amazing music.

my notes

So, EP5 Erika vs Evatrice, who is more likable?

Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing

Evatrice is the better character.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 26 April, 2011, 03:46:58 pm
Success!

Though Erika is a lot more likable in EP6 than in EP5. You might just end up liking her more than Evatrice after that episode.

Summary of your opinions on EP5?


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 26 April, 2011, 06:13:30 pm
4 > 3 > 5 > 2 > 1

The game board was pretty dull, pretty much the worst besides 1. Magic explanation was barely utilized and there was hardly a point when it felt like it was impossible for a human, the argument just came down to which human did it. The ending didn't even really work for me since all Battler did was prove he could also have been the culprit, but this still supports the idea that humans could have performed the crime, so Beaton still loses.

Aside from the game board though, Bernkastel, 34, and Erika were fun, and the end was awesome, so It was considerably better than the first couple episodes.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 26 April, 2011, 06:48:33 pm

AGTH didn't work, but ITH does! Not that it helps much in understanding gameplay since its mostly described through graphics, but that info is slowing going up on the wiki.

Haven't played much, characters are mostly less interesting than in their other games I played. Best are loli Hitler, genki Goebbels, and SUPER Douglas MacArthur. Also Rance cameo.

Of course. Pearl Harbor never happened and America declared war on Japan because they refused to comply with trade demands. Also China is evil and was picking on Japan. Any references to genocide by any country is removed. FDR was a figurehead for large corporations to control and run the country with.

Again? What?

Perspective is the issue because at the angle her hand is at you should be able to see parts of more fingers and you can't. Missing fingers have nothing to do with proportion at all, if the issue was that I forgot them it would be an issue of anatomy.

Problems, problems... terrible characters, Kanon and Shannon bullshit, lame battles, George, jerkass loser Battler, shitty application of Moetrice, and most of all, that godawful love contest between the worst characters in all of Umineko that basically becomes the aspect around which every non-Erika event on the game board revolves...

Here's a fun fact: I gobbled up nearly every bit of Umineko with absolutely no problems. Even EP2, for which I have nothing but hateful words in retrospect, was engrossing. I hit a brick wall on EP6; it was the very first and very last fucking moment in all of Umineko where I considered reading it a chore. It is absolutely, unrelentingly terrible; I use it in order to discern who is completely fucking retarded just by seeing if they liked this shit or not. The only reason why the episode isn't completely awful is because everything that involves Erika is excellent; you know that your episode sucks when Erika, whom I absolutely despise, makes it awesome.

What would a proper application be? She's the worst part of this, she'd be better left dead.

EP3. It's a different variety of Moetrice, but she made that story significantly better. It has been established that the original Beato is dead and gone, so expecting a return of that concept is silly, but I still just absolutely hate EP6's Moetrice; it's like the story wants to **** the corpse of a previously awesome character.

Post by: Maniac234678 on 07 May, 2011, 09:59:31 am
EP7 is my favorite game in the series, but I dunno if it would please you that much. Very little action, pretty awful music and tons of exposition; I found every bit of it interesting, and it pretty much answers every question Umineko is intent on revealing.

Oh yes, it also doesn't have Battler. Instead, it has WILLARD MOTHERFUCKING WRIGHT as the protagonist, who happens to be a million times more awesome and likable.

OH! Episode 6 notes...

Also, I hate the Ange/Featherine scenes already. If there's anything we need at this point, it's another reason to slow the already glacial pacing.

EDIT: Oh god, Shannon and Kanon conversation. Jesus, these two have to be the worst characters in Umineko, and being treated to more Kanon angst is just making it worse.

EDIT: EDIT: Erika is even more of a complete monster in EP6. Which is saying quite a bit, since she was already the most evil character in Umineko as of EP5.

alsoalsoalso: Why is it that Mirage Coordinator is considered to be 34's theme? The first time it plays is during a scene that 34 isn't even in, and it plays like what, twice when Lambda is around between episodes 3-5? It's basically just the standard "major conflict" theme that plays when shit gets real.
Oh, I think that I know why episode 6 sucks. All of my favorite characters are going to be slaughtered by my least favorite characters over nothing. Fuck you.

EDIT: My ideal happy ending: George dies writhing in pain, and everyone lives happily ever after. You know that you're a punkass when Erika is bit more understandable than you are. At least there's something satisfying about seeing your favorite character aligned against the person that you hate the most. She isn't going to win and the mood is on George's side, but at least I can cheer for her.

EDIT: EDIT:

List of Characters' Demands for EP6

Quote from: EVA
I'll be revived as a villain who surpasses Erika! The succession of cruel murders will unfold once more.
Towards the end, I'll get involved in an intense battle with Battler! That will need to take up at least 100,000 characters of text.
The battle scene should use five new fight songs made exclusively for EVA.
Furthermore, in the hand-to-hand combat spinoff fighting game, I get to be one of the strongest characters.
Frontier Works will release a hug pillow of me along with one of the DVDs!

Quote from: Krauss
The battle against the Golden Witch will head towards the true fight. It will finally develop into the fight for gold in other words, the fight over finances! Krauss, who had always played the part of the lowly buffoon, finally awakens as the Golden Sorcerer!
Bargaining to change the market price, distinguishing between lies and truth. Enveloped in the money game conspiracy! Business terminology will fly about, to the point where people will feel like they've become business experts just by reading it!

Quote from: Magical Gohda Chef
I'll cook lots of delicious food! I would like for the scene about my dinner orchestra to be at least 50,000 characters long.
And then everyone gives my wonderful cooking a standing ovation! I'll even receive a peck on the cheek from Madam out of admiration!
Of course, my fight scene will be in the kitchen. It will start out as a gun fight, but the real part will begin when I drop my gun.
I will blow away the terrorists with my aikidio techniques! My catchphrase will be: "I can't lose in the kitchen!"

WHAT WENT WRONG GOD DAMN IT

EDIT: EDIT: EDIT:

Quote
Finally, EVA's dress had been remodeled into a super short mini-skirt, and she was wearing black knee-socks to match. Her hairstyle had been changed into twintails, and on top of that, she had even agreed to show up on screen with cat ears, a bell collar, a sailor uniform, and bloomers with a tail attached for a special punishment game outfit...
But even with such harsh conditions thrust upon her, EVA, who didn't want to lose her part, groveled on the floor and thanked Battler profusely.
Battler, who said with an attitude like that of a feudal lord that he would graciously grant her a part, had become a wicked magistrate of a Game Master, to the point where even Beato would have been surprised...

Battler is the biggest Complete Monster in Umineko.
So yeah, it is apparent that I love Zepar and Furfur.

But which one has the penis?

...and

Episode 6 has been completed. With that finished, I have completed every Umineko game that has been translated to this day. Which is a shame, because from all accounts, episode 7 is made of awesome.

And because I can, top 10 characters from EP1-6:

10. Kinzo
9. Beatrice
8. Lambdadelta
7. The Stakes. All of them, damn it.
6. Gaap
5. Virgilia
4. Ronove
3. Ange
2. Bernkastel
1. Eva-Beatrice

I'm sure EP7 is going to drastically alter this list. Except for first place of course, unless Willard really is as badass as he has been described.

Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 07 May, 2011, 05:07:37 pm
That list is so outdated that it's almost hilarious. Liking Gaap is a bit of an old shame; she's nowhere near there anymore, but at the time, I really liked her and wanted to see more of her. There's a whole lot of Gaap in EP7, but by the time that came out, I ceased to give a **** about her. However, I can still remember the arguments for each of those characters being in their positions.

- I didn't give a **** about Beato after EP3; she was majorly there because I loved her that much in EP3.
- I already knew that Kinzo raped his daughter at the time, so putting him higher sickened me.
- Lambda doesn't ever do anything; she's pretty funny, but all she ever does is goof around up until EP8, which didn't exist at that time.

Out of all of these characters, only Lambda is still in my top ten.

I think that Gold Text is the truth that comes from someone who is a position to actually use it. In Battler's case, he's able to use it because he's the game master. It would kinda be like he's the one who would absolutely know that Kinzo was dead because he knows 100% that it's true. Maria's gold truth sorta works that way as well, as she knows completely what she was talking about. I don't remember any confirmation on what it is, so this is a hypothesis. At this point, nobody really cares about debating what its definition is, because the general consensus on it is that it's pretty much an asspull.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 07 May, 2011, 05:11:40 pm
Oh reading EP7 btw. Not sure how much I'll say about it, I'm up to Jessica's story now. I found Kinzo's pretty boring, that's one point in the story that I never cared to hear exposition on despite its importance.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 07 May, 2011, 05:15:56 pm
I thought that Kinzo's story was pretty good; I thought that the older characters were pretty **** flat and needed something that establish their existence, and it sorta worked for Kinzo and Nanjo. Problem is, Kumasawa and Genji really don't have much of a backstory, even if the latter does actually have some involvement in the main issue.

By the way, I edited my previous post to answer the gold text question, if you haven't seen it.

Exactly.

Shannon is a secondary focus. The game doesn't give a **** about her as her own character; every time the story brings her up, it's for the sake of what she does for Yasu, or as a way to describe Yasu. She's a bare-bones character, and this game acknowledges it by using her as a satellite around Yasu.

Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 08 May, 2011, 12:47:08 am
A whole lot. The most well-known issue is that it doesn't have an ending from a mystery perspective; this was pretty much foreshadowed to hell and all but stated by Ryukishi very early on, but the execution doesn't satisfy plenty of readers. Other topics of interest include interpretations on the connotations of the episode, some endgame revelations, some inflammatory remarks that the omniscient narrator makes about Umineko's fandom and several other issues. The fantasy aspects are widely agreed on to be pretty good, but everything else is hotly contested.

So, rank the episodes, with small write-ups.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 08 May, 2011, 12:54:50 am

I thought this was more or less dealt with this episode even if several aspects are vague. As much was answered as I was really expecting.

small write-ups.

Post by: Maniac234678 on 08 May, 2011, 01:18:35 am
Before episode 8 was released, it was generally agreed upon that Bern was pulling it out of her ass. Note that there's plenty of implication that Bern is incapable of correctly performing her duties as the game master due to her being a complete sociopath. EP7 was also fond of establishing a sense of importance on the heart of the crime, the heartfelt motive which would be the final means of gauging whether or not the suspect would have actually done the crime. Kyrie doesn't have this; she suddenly goes insane with greed and becomes an emotionless sociopath. Thing is, that's not what kind of person Kyrie is; EP6 establishes that if Kyrie was willing to kill, it would be over something dear to her heart, like love. It wouldn't be something trifling like money, and she wouldn't be detached and nonchalant about it as she was during the Tea Party, nor would she have discarded Rudolf so quickly. The story that Bernkastel weaves suffers from the same thing that made Eva being the culprit based on EP3 thoroughly improbable; it contrasts with what defines them as characters.

On the subject of Bern's defense, she claims that she isn't the game master, but it wouldn't be the first lie to come out of her mouth, and it won't be the last. Her red truth is of questionable merit; note that you can say the beginning portions of red truth until it becomes false, as demonstrated in episode 4. Bernkastel was not given the opportunity to complete her statement, so it is possible for her to have prepared to utter a lie. Alternatively, red truth has been stretched to the point of relativity, so it is possible that she was about to utter red truth for something related and slightly in context, but not entirely for the pressing issue. I remember other ideas on the subject, but this was my personal interpretation.

As for EP8, it confirms this by confirming the concept of a Rokkenjima Prime, the "real world" which separates what really happened from what was written in the story. In the story, Kyrie was the murderer, but there is no indication that she actually was the killer in the "real world". From what I've heard, Bernkastel even admits that her truth for the incident was not correct, so for this reason, Ange pursues Eva's diary, which contains the genuine truth of what happened on Rokkenjima Prime. For the purpose of Rokkenjima Prime, nobody is identified as the killer, and the truth is never revealed by anyone who learns of it.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 08 May, 2011, 01:33:17 am
At no point was I expecting to get an answer to what actually happened on Rokkenjima, it's been extensively implied that it doesn't matter what the real truth is, and it isn't the important mystery, nor is it a solvable one seeing as how very limited certain clues are presented for what happened. It was always about the mysteries presented in individual stories with the overlying mystery of who "Beatrice" was. The real mysteries have already been answered.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 08 May, 2011, 01:51:53 am
You're moving into territory that could only receive a response from someone who knows exactly how the story ended. This doesn't have any real spoilers, but it written with the ending of EP8 in mind and might have some implications towards its tone as it ends.








That's a viewpoint that's contested. Less so for the lack of an ending part or anything related to what was intended and more for the connotation of it. By leaving the ending ambiguous, there is no process of justice being served for those who were affected. Acts of cruelty and evil were committed, never brought to light and people are left suffering and questions that will never be answered. The killer is most certainly dead, but in the eyes of the public, that killer is a victim while blame shifts to others like Eva and related culpability falls on the shoulders of people like Nanjo, who are most certainly innocent. As a result, we have the assuredly innocent Eva spending the next 12 years in constant torment from the public and her adopted daughter before she reaches the misery singularity and dies. We also have the relatives of the servants left with nothing but questions, with a notable example in Nanjo's son, who is shown to be disappointed in his father for his supposed culpability in the crime and is in a constant state of misery over it when Nanjo likely didn't do anything. In spite of this, the story does not care about this universal perspective and continues to espouse the virtues of moving on towards a much more limited group, while numerous people are never given a reason to do so. Essentially, that's the perspective that was intended, but Ryukishi just opened up a whole new can of worms over the subject of the actual crime by opting to go that route.

Post by: Ahriman on 09 May, 2011, 12:32:32 am
I think I generally said what I thought about each episode as I went through them so this won't be that interesting, but alright.

EPISODE 1

Before all the magic and metaworlds and such are introduced Umineko is just a pretty boring mystery. Part of my disinterest may be because I'd already seen the anime, and for this point in the story I honestly think the anime functions better because it doesn't have to worry about metagame aspects yet and that's when it get ridiculous to keep all the details and animate all the stupid things that happen. None of the characters stood out yet, and the character that got the most focus besides Battler was Natsuhi who sucked until EP5.

The first day is boring as hell and I skipped through most of it. I understand the necessity of introducing every character but there's fu(http://)cking 18 of them and none of them made a difference until they actually did things later on. All I remember of the second day is the first two twilights, Battler arguing with Eva about...something, I can't remember what the mystery was there, and the scene with System 0 when Natsuhi flips out. Without the metagame I didn't really give a sh(http://)it.

Standout tracks are Goldenslaughterer, System 0, Bring the Fate, Dead Angle, and Nighteyes, and I guess Prison STRIP. None of them play until the second day, almost all the other tracks are sh(http://)it albeit they generally do their job in terms of creating atmosphere.

EPISODE 2

BEATO

Most important addition there. Since this episode had some sh(http://)itty characters as the focus everyone still sucked except Beatrice and Battler now that the game had really started. Well, Rosa was awesome too, eventually. That's all that puts it over EP1, if you take that and the magic out its even sh(http://)ittier.

The metagame's pretty weak at this point, Battler is incompetent so its entirely onesided. The arguments aren't very good, it's just fun because Beatrice is such an evil bi(http://)tch.

The magic explanations were pretty cool and new at the time albeit they're entirely overshadowed by everything in the future. Biggest standout moment is the very end with the banquet and Rosa beating up goats. Other than that there was, like, Kanon vs one of the Stakes in the worst fight in the series. There must've also been something else because I know Shannon did something but I can't remember what it was at all so that might have been worse.

Standout tracks are Worldend Dominator, Black Lilliana, and Answer. Less than EP1, but it had WORLDEND DOMINATOR and the general quality is up, so that's okay.

EPISODE 3

This is really where the story sort of manages to settle in to what it ends up becoming later. EP3 and after feel like they have a very different tone than EP1 and EP2. Whereas the first two episodes were effectively mysteries with some horror elements, EP3 became very fantastical and absurd. After the first mystery with the chain of closed rooms, which is actually one of the more clever ones, there isn't really a mystery any more until the last murder. (Speaking of which I can't remember what the explanation there was. Eva already found the gold so "Beatrice" shouldn't have killed him, and as I recall Eva couldn't have done it.) The rest of the episode is all about Eva-Beatrice being crazy and other people being awesome in combating her, and it's great.

Since I am forced to say something about Eva-Beatrice, and I would anyways since she made this episode, I can just point back to what I said before. Everyone that faces her looks like a total badass, so as a villain, she succeeds fantastically. Also her facial expressions are fu(http://)cking hilarious. As a character herself, I didn't like her much. You'd think I would because I like all the other horrible insane people in this story, but nope. I think the main reason is her particularly childish sort of insanity is something I don't really care for.

Ronove and Virgilia were very helpful additions for adding some character interactions during the metagame and making it more fun to read. Ronove was definitely one of the cooler characters at the time, and it's too bad he never really did anything except chill in metaworld and beat the sh(http://)it out of Jessica. Virgilia got the same sort of treatment as Ronove after this episode where she was always on the sidelines except for her one part in EP4, but the magic fight in this episode was very cool. It pretty much marked the turning point from the feel of previous episodes to everything after. It also led into the introduction of the Braun tube concept so that all this sh(http://)it sort of made more sense. And then of course Beato was amazing in this episode the entire way through, and the ending was glorious.

Standout tracks are Fake Red Shoes, Mother, Happiness of Marionette, Dance of the Moon Rabbits, Prison, Thanks for Being Born, Tsubasa, Paradise Lost, activepain, and I think miragecoordinator first played in the Tea Party but I can't remember for sure. So that's a load more than the last two episodes, even 4 of them are basically Happiness of Marionette variants. I think EP4 has more.

I like reading write-ups, so it's not uninteresting. I mean, I kinda liked the first day of EP1. Just try to bore me with opinions, because you'll fail.

Of course, your inability to use commas properly is pretty grating.

Can't wait for an EP3 write-up, if only because you're obligated to write a dissertation on Eva-Beatrice. You are in the midst of a massive fanboy who wouldn't permit anything less, after all.

Post by: Maniac234678 on 11 May, 2011, 12:24:27 am
ps miragecoordinator played during Battler vs Eva-Beatrice. Nobody remembers this, and so it has arbitrarily become the unofficial theme song for Lambda, which confuses me to absolutely no end.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 11 May, 2011, 12:30:10 am
huh

you'd think i would remember that

but i don't

Lambda needs some theme song though, and it played during her best scene, so.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 11 May, 2011, 12:43:26 am
It played in four scenes in EP4. It is the very first track to play in Chiru. I'd estimate total plays at around 12.  Lambda only had a prominent role in a grand total of two of those scenes. The song is obviously a general conflict theme, but some retards seem to have some problem with understanding this.

Still, it's not as retarded as saying that The Executioner is Bernkastel's theme song, which seems to be catching on as well.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 11 May, 2011, 12:52:20 am
I sort of attached Black Lilliana to Bernkastel, although I can't remember whether it always played with her around or if it only played with her around. Lambda doesn't have any obvious choice.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 11 May, 2011, 12:53:58 am
Haze sorta worked for Bern until she was revealed to be evil, at which point it was never brought into Chiru until episode 8.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 11 May, 2011, 12:57:54 am
Anyways her theme being The Executioner makes about as much sense as Rosa's theme being Worldend Dominator.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 11 May, 2011, 01:02:40 am
No, it makes less sense; The Executioner plays exactly at the moment Will jumps in to save Lion's ass, and every subsequent play in EP8 has it play during scenes where the hero[es] of the moment are turning the tides against whatever is causing the conflict. It obviously has a theme, and it has nothing to do with Bern.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing

Great, I've reached a point in EP8 where I cannot begin to describe what is happening because what I'm relying on to interpret the scene is too obtuse.

By the way, a partial, 50% translation patch for EP8 was released yesterday, if you're interested. I want to wait for the full thing since I've already read everything that was covered. Translation status from Witch Hunt's site:

Episode 8

    * Translation: 55%
    * Editing: 50%
    * Picture Editing: 85%


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 11 May, 2011, 01:33:58 am
I'll get it later. I just checked that the other day and they were like 15% behind that.

Post by: Maniac234678 on 11 May, 2011, 01:37:44 am
Don't rely on Witch Hunt's site too much; if something happens, they're more likely to update their AnimeSuki translation topic (http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=65140) rather than their website.

In other news I'm still not doing those write-ups. I don't have much to say about most of Chiru anyways, it was good but it never reached the same peak as EP3 and 4. Beato being generally unpresent was a point against it but then again Bernkastel is fine too if not better.

Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 19 May, 2011, 12:17:18 am
Battler doesn't matter? I'm pretty sure that she wanted to trap his mind in a hellish world for the rest of eternity while constantly raping his immobile body out of spite.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing

Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing

Post by: Maniac234678 on 19 May, 2011, 12:30:56 am
There we go.

Still, I have no clue why, after disliking her in one episode, she's automatically among the best characters after EP6. That's just stupid; your opinion is stupid.

Looking at that again, how can you still like Beato for anything that she did after EP3? She's just been a shitty, boring character since then.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 19 May, 2011, 04:06:06 pm
Because she was the best character for a while even if she ended up comatose/dead/moe.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 19 May, 2011, 04:19:05 pm
...and that doesn't change the fact that she has since ceased to be an interesting character, yet the story likes to pretend that she is.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 19 May, 2011, 04:21:42 pm
She was generally easy to ignore in Chiru, so it doesn't drop her at all to me.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 19 May, 2011, 04:35:42 pm
That's because you were focusing on Bern, Erika and Lambda. >_>


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Ahriman on 22 May, 2011, 11:53:32 pm
Anyways I am now shifting from VNs to animu because there's some stuff I want to get through. I just rewatched Nanoha/A's and am now watching StrikerS for the first time. I've also got Mushishi from a while ago that I never watched and I'm getting FotNS for when I'm done with that.

So this topic is currently irrelevant. Or I could just change the title.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 23 May, 2011, 12:12:03 am
Do you agree that StrikerS has some wonky pacing, especially after watching A's?


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing

I've watched one episode so I wouldn't know.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing
Post by: Maniac234678 on 23 May, 2011, 12:25:59 am
The next large combat scene is in episode 5. After that, everything goes back to being incredibly slow until episode 12 or something. StrikerS is the slowest thing ever, moreso than even the first season.

Oh, and Tiana or whatever is such a terrible character, at least in the beginning. Watching her get beaten down is so amusing.


Title: Re: Ahriman visual novel topic thing

I really didn't like the concept of Reinforce Zwei. The main reason why I liked Reinforce so much was because she was attractive, cool-looking, had a sexy and deep voice and was badass in combat. Replacing her with a high-pitched loli version didn't go over well for me.

No names aside from his username, which I searched to confirm stuff about him on other sites. He has a cosplay.com account, so I don't think this is just some bizarre joke.

It could work, but there are a laundry list of things that are needed unless you look exactly like a woman. A small frame, round face, loose (ideally puffy) outfit, a bonnet that frames your face, etc. Even then, some people who are used to catching masculine details could see through that, though it's surprisingly easy to trick some people.

If only because it was twice as long. It also seems like they were running off about the same budget, and it was considerably more confused with what characters to follow.


Title: Re: Ahriman's personal blog for animu and things tangentially related to it
Post by: Maniac234678 on 28 May, 2011, 08:55:40 pm
Yeah, my interpretation of what I say and what I knew was essentially StrikerS being the first season of Nanoha with two times as many episodes and with pacing issues that are in proportion with the amount of episodes. The first season of Nanoha didn't succeed at being good because it had such issues, but it wasn't bad because it was so short. StrikerS doesn't have that benefit, so it ends up in bad territory because it has **** pacing and because it's much longer than previous seasons.

Fist of the North Star gets better after Shin's arc. Oh, and after the Fang Clan arc, but that's kinda amusing. Basically, when Jagi appears, it starts getting pretty cool.

After the Ryuga arc ends at around 76, skip the next 5 episodes. They're all flashbacks to previous episodes; they're thoroughly worthless.

Bat (no really, his name is supposed to be spelled like this) and Lin are phased out after Kenshiro leaves to confront Jagi, but reappear later and are present for most of the last half of the anime if I recall correctly. Really, they're so meaningless that I quickly stopped noticing that they were even present, especially when Kenshiro picks up perfectly competent companions like Rei, Shu, Fudo and even Mamiya (for a certain value of competent) at different intervals.

Because a vast majority of fist of the North Star is padding and filler, and because it doesn't really deviate too far from the main concept: villains dying horribly and brutally. Hell, even some major villains get completely dominated.

Still, I had the same issue during the Shin arc, but it faded away after Jagi's miniarc. Dunno if the same thing will happen for you.

Alright, Part 2 is done, over halfway there.

As anticipated, the show suffers from the Shonen Jump problem of dragging things out for way too long, and I've already passed the point where I started getting tired of it around Cassandra. The fights with Raoh were great though, because Raoh is awesome and it was nice to see somebody not get completely dominated for once.

Part 3 done. Souther was easily the best non-Raoh antagonist. His whole arc was the best this show has been in a while. The Ryuga arc was anticlimactic and the build-up was boring, which is too bad because Ryuga was pretty cool.

Just the length of an average show to go now!

Post by: Ahriman on 14 June, 2011, 10:03:44 pm
Complete.

This is the third longest anime that I've watched to completion after Yu Yu Hakusho and DBZ. (which is like 3 times as long but I skipped a bunch of filler and **** and watched over a far longer timespan than this)

Compression would benefit this show so much. So many episodes even far into the show were about random bandits being assholes in a town and Kenshiro killing them all. It's pretty much exactly the same every time it happens and oftentimes it's used to pad out an episode where something actually important to the plot happens at the start and end. I'm guessing it's usually filler although I have no way to check that.

Still pretty badass all around though so I gave it a 7. I've got the movie and some OVA thing sitting here but I just want to move into Votoms now.


Title: Re: Ahriman's personal blog for animu and things tangentially related to it
Post by: Maniac234678 on 16 June, 2011, 06:31:05 am
I actually liked Fist of the North Star due to its inconsistency in scaling villain threat. Honestly, Kenshiro is pretty much godlike and, ever since he was announced as the successor to Hokuto Shinken, has only been defeated two times in canon (More than that if you count post-Raoh villains like Kaioh, but whether or not anything after Raoh is canon is questionable), and even Raoh does not figure into those. For that reason, I eventually found a comfortable spot for watching the show just for all of the formulaic, yet quirky scenarios and villains. Then again, I might have liked Fist of the North Star more because it took me 5 months to finish it.

I actually gave Fist of the North Star a 9. What's your take on that opinion?


Title: Re: Ahriman's personal blog for animu and things tangentially related to it
Post by: Ahriman on 16 June, 2011, 10:20:02 am
I wouldn't argue with that opinion. Even with my problems with it it's still a pretty a pretty awesome show for a lot of reasons, and if it probably would've worked better as something to watch occasionally rather than watching several episodes a day.

I have suddenly decided to watch all the Studio Ghibli films, at least until I get bored of that. Just watched Nausicaa for the first time. For an anime in 1984, it looks fu(http://)cking unbelievable, and all the giant bug monsters and environments look awesome. That's the main selling point on the movie, the story and characters were boring.

It also now occurs to me that the second boss of Crystalis (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNbscE3YvbM) was a reference to the Ohmu from Nausicaa. That boss also happened to be in a poisonous forest.

I think the opening when Nausicaa was gliding after that giant Ohmu and trying to stop it was the best part, just because it was all animated so well.

Also forgot to mention that the soundtrack was notably pretty awesome too.

Went to the county fair, ate sh(http://)itty fair food, bought some sweet aviator sunglasses. Also some guy singled me out of a crowd to give a free bible to, so I guess I look like a godless heathen.

And naturally because I'm me I have to seek out the animu's everywhere I go. There were two stands with animu merchandise this year, which is twice as many as I saw last year. One had typical gaiafag type stuff that I wouldn't bother with. Last year that stand had some soundtrack discs that were interesting, most notably IIRC the FFVIII soundtrack disc, but I didn't see anything like that there this year.

The other looked like it had more obscure stuff, but I was meeting with family when I saw it and there was a big picture of Chun-li with most of her clothes torn off that looked like an HCG above the entrance, so I decided against checking it out further.

Title: Re: Ahriman's personal blog for animu and things tangentially related to it
Post by: Ahriman on 16 July, 2011, 12:53:53 am
More like so awesome it's funny.

I played it because:

A. It's an Alicesoft game, and I like their games and artwork.
B. I like the WWII parody stuff. I like Japan's ridiculous stereotyping of other countries in general, it's one of the reasons I love G Gundam.
C. The gameplay is functionally similar to Sengoku Rance.

I've got plenty of experience with playing games in Japanese, so it isn't any trouble to figure them out. If you can read katakana then you can find your way around most of an interface. I can't read the story, but I had enough reason to play it anyways, and it was pretty sweet.

Enjoying it though, I like the characters more than the ones in Azumanga Daioh, and Tenma is basically a more energetic Osaka. Also watching Harima get infinitely cockblocked gets pretty ridiculous at a lot of points.

I've been putting it on in the background while I do other stuff, so I watched the whole first season in 2 days and I'll probably get through the second season by tomorrow. It's easy to watch without paying much attention, which is what I was looking for. I'm watching the dub, which is pretty good and not in an ironic sort of way.

It's a less interesting version of Adventure, but it's still the Adventure continuity, so it's decent for that. It's not as good as Adventure, Tamers or Savers, but it's not bad. Well, except for the ending and surrounding arcs.

I really like this opening. The soundtrack in general is pretty good and entirely superior to the dub that has one of the stupidest theme songs ever made but anyways

10 episodes in, and it's been more or less standard Digimon fare so far, except that there is no Digital World, which is pretty much what I thought of it when it aired. Nowadays my favorite sort of setting is a pseudo-realistic modern setting so I haven't got a problem with it, but at the time I thought it was pretty lame. The first episode did notably have a sort of Lain feel though, and apparently that continues when the D-Reaper shows up, but I never watched that far.

ESH and SA2's profiles inspired me to play through Yume Nikki. It was definitely the most unsettling game I've played, and it was very interesting, although I didn't care much for the often far too large environments that are an enormous pain if you don't have the bike or use the chair glitch. I used a walkthrough to find half the effects so this didn't take forever and I didn't trigger several of the events. Including the Uboa event, I hit the switch several times without it occurring and got bored of it, and I already knew exactly what would happen anyways.

It was cool though, it was certainly unlike anything else, if nothing else.

The big areas add to the whole unsettling for me.... The idea of getting lost just doesn't sit right with me.... You know even if you know about Uboa and try to do it you can never prepare yourself.... It still creeped me out.... So did what happens after you pass that rail rubbing thing....

I'm surprised that you haven't played it before.... I'd be even more surprised if BIZZLE said he hadn't.... But I'm glad our profiles got you to play it....

I've seen videos of every event, so really it wouldn't add much to see them in the game now. It does, of course, totally get rid of any sense of shock when you do that, but I just wanted to see everything. The thing that got me the most is when the big red monster in the sewers eats you when you walk into it's mouth because I wasn't expecting it to move and I didn't know it existed beforehand.

I've been aware of the game for a while now due to all the Touhou-esque fan work that it spawned somehow. I didn't know much of the game besides a few screens I'd seen, and I kind of forgot about it until now.

He's being a creep so that he could get someone to call him a creep. Then he'll laugh or something. Basic troll bullshit.

The problem is that it's a completely random place in which he's doing it. There are definitely better places than a college message board to do your weird ronery trolling thing.

There's a bit less personal security when you know that you're going to live on the same campus as a creep. The persecutor will probably never meet the person who posts like that, but someone incredibly insecure is probably going to react more fiercely towards someone who they feel might be close to them than some random loser on a forum. There could be other, less definable reasons, too; it wouldn't make a lot of sense, but you get a lot of people who do things that don't make sense anyway.

Title: Re: Ahriman's personal blog for animu and things tangentially related to it
Post by: Ahriman on 30 July, 2011, 03:14:39 am
see MAL for rating

I gave every Digimon I saw a 7 on my list, as a neutral rating since I can't really give a proper score since it's been a while. I still think this is around 7, it was decent but it still came down to being a kid's show that I don't nostalgia for hard enough to rank it higher.

The obvious rating is Tamers>Adventure>02, even though I'd probably enjoy Adventure more if I were to rewatch it. I can also say without seeing it that Frontier goes at the bottom. I don't know how Savers or Xros Wars fit in.

D-Reaper.

Having watched this to completion as a kid, I would definitely pick and tear at that part.

I think I had my expectations too high for how fu(http://)cked up it was going to be and it turned out to be incredibly underwhelming.


Title: Re: Ahriman's personal blog for animu and things tangentially related to it
Post by: Maniac234678 on 30 July, 2011, 03:29:38 am
The thing about that is that most people who speak of Tamers' end, me included, watched that as a kid. I was in third grade at the time and, consequently, the D-Reaper scared the living shit out of me to such a degree that it has never been matched to this day, which is exactly why I hold it in such high esteem. Running into the D-Reaper at such an early age is probably a reason why nothing scares me at this point. Hell, beyond that, even the earliest portions of the show creeped the hell out of me. It's probably mild when you watch it for the first time as an adult, but having watched the entire thing to completion as a 9-year old kid, it's pretty much the most memorable aspect in all of Digimon.

I figured that was the deal when I got there. I guess if I want to watch a fu(http://)cked up show about kids with pet monsters I have to watch Narutaru.

Probably not anytime soon. I'm watching Haibane Renmei now, I'm not sure what I'll watch after that. If I do watch another Digimon, it'll be Adventure.

Chiaki Konaka wrote the script for the Narutaru anime and Tamers; he's not the original author, but do note that you said WATCH. He also contributed to Serial Experiments Lain. One must wonder why he was put as the head writer of Tamers. >_>

I have never heard anything but good things about Haibane Renmei, but every time I look at it, I can't bring myself to watch it. Honestly, I've pretty much destroyed anime in general for myself over the last two months.

Yeah, apparently he did. Wikipedia didn't list it, I guess I ought to trust it less. I did know he wrote SEL, that's part of what rose my expectations.

Post by: Ahriman on 31 July, 2011, 02:48:15 am
Enjoyed watching the Rebuild movies on my TV, so I went ahead and ordered Kara no Kyoukai in an effort to continue stockpiling garbage for collective purposes. It's a Malaysian bootleg with all the movies and the entire OST included, so the quality is questionable but I got all that for $25 so whatever. The movies are all on 3 DVD's, but most of the movies are less than an hour in length so that's not a big deal.

Halfway through Haibane Renmei. If this is building to something, it isn't occurring fast enough. It's interesting and has a great soundtrack and atmosphere, but symbolism and sh(http://)it really doesn't hold a show for me on it's own. The details of the world they're in and what the details are with anything are vague and I'm sure someone could write me an analytical essay on what it all means, but I feel like something more specific and impactful could have been done with this idea. Of course, I've still got 7 episodes, so something might happen but from what I hear a lot is left unaccounted for.

I don't understand how Queen's Gate is listed on the front page of Gamefaqs, this is some pretty niche sh(http://)it. I guess because of the Arc System Works characters and some numerous other fighting game characters that are mixed together in a seemingly entirely random crossover.

This is basically SRW though so I can dig it.


Title: Re: Ahriman's personal blog for animu and things tangentially related to it

A lot of games you wouldn't expect tend to appear on the front page on occasion. For instance, Hyperdimension Neptune was there for a while when it first came out, so yeah.

Unless Queen's Gate has been out for more than a month, then its a little odd.

I feel some personal guilt for spending money on something like this. My other figurines came with a DVD set so I could justify it. At least it was relatively cheap and is of the best animu girl.
