I'm afraid I don't get the reference.
Never mind, I googled it. I guess that's not so bad. :-)
A little behind the scenes info on what that last post just did, because it did a lot.
Sailor Moon already had the hots for TK, but now she's going to be actively working to prove herself as good enough to date TK.
Luna's been forced to agree with you (kicking and screaming, but that doesn't matter) and, now she's going to be using you as the metaphorical carrot to motivate Sailor Moon as the metaphorical stick of her nagging has been less than effective. That's going to both soften Luna's opinion of you each time she uses it, and get Moon to focus on you.
Sailor Moon was the easy mode girl (as in, you'd have to try hard to not get her, easy mode), but you've accelerated when you get her.
Also, I figure this is as good a place to mention as any. Each of the girls has a condition to satisfy to get her into the harem. This is of course based on what I think of their character. They haven't all been locked down yet of course, but that's an ongoing effort. I quite like Jupiter's trigger, so I'm looking forward for us to get that far.

Harem Get Condition: Remind her of her old senpai.
Joking aside, bwahahaha. I figured this would be enough to clinch it with Usagi, yeah. As I said before, Motivation Is Key with Usagi. In canon, she was quite content to sit back and fantasize about Tuxedo Kamen, but now we've gotten her off her ass and I'm looking forward to seeing the difference.
I'm also glad at the opportunity to bring Luna around. I for one am always happy to make friends with a kitty, and it helps that Luna's generally one of the smarter minds in the room, even if she can be a naggy little shit on a bad day.
Coincidentally, I'm looking forward to the point where her human form comes into play, even if that's several seasons from now. I just want to see that moment when she does it and everyone in the room fucking loses it.
I read a fanfic once where Usagi was a huge chuunibyou before becoming Sailor Moon. That story went *off the damn rails* in the best way possible. It's nowhere near complete, it probably never will be, and it has a purposely-crafted unfortunate title, but it's amazing fun all the same.
It is Beautiful Destroyer Sailor Moon.
As for the harem conditions, I don't think it'll be too difficult to convince Honoka, but everyone else…hmm…I think Moe might have to guide us to that bit by bit over time. I feel like I know most of the characters, but not well enough to figure out how they'd react in those kinds of situations.
>>7290>I think Moe might have to guide us to that bit by bit over time.
Yes, the characters will certainly be getting more fleshed out. Those scenes should give you the info you need to figure out how they tick, and what would reasonably convince them to join the harem (in the oversexualized universe that this crossover is taking place in, because I don't think you'd be able to convince anyone except possibly Manga!Usagi to be in a harem in canon).
If we encourage the girls to bond, would they later be able to tell us interesting details about each other that would help make future sexytimes somewhat easier to achieve?
And with that, episode 3 has come to an end after six months. Seems like a good time to get feedback. Any questions, comments, or concerns?
Can't really go much into it right now while at work, but who here thinks we should put Nagisa through some kind of martial arts training? The stats really hammer home not only how bad she is at physical fighting despite her propensity for charging in, but also how much it might work in our favor with her.
If we do that, we need a style that suits her best. And boy, are there a lotta styles to choose from. Maybe shotokan-ryu? It's an Okinawan art that I'm partial to 'cause Dad made first-degree black belt in it way back in the day, and I made it to blue belt before I went after amateur theater more seriously.
I'm more of a kendo guy myself, so I'll leave it to you guys to work on this one. I'm pretty sure we shouldn't go with judo no matter what, though. It probably wouldn't do us any good to even accidentally imply she try to imitate or be more like Honoka.
Since this quest has a connection to the solar system, this seems like an appropriate place. Safe solar eclipse viewing to everyone that's able to make it!
Congrats Limits. The series revealed in this episode is in fact Splash Star. Unfortunately, some bad news, Heartcatch only has Kaoruko (Tsubomi's grandmother that runs the shop). The actual heartcatch plot is scheduled for a later game where it has a greater thematic integration.
Anyway, with this, we have 5 series correctly guessed. There are 7 total series (I'm not counting Sailor Moon and Crystal as separate series). As for the last two series in this game, I'll be vague, but you guys have been on the right track during some earlier speculation/hoping.
Oh god, we're getting Madoka! Abandon game!
[tries to catch Blue's ear and can't, being too short and cursed with T-rex arms] We can't abandon ship yet! [flails cartoonishly]
I'm kidding, of course. Mostly.
So, given Splash Star's inclusion in this season, does our resident PreCure guy want to give us a full breakdown of that one? I feel like it might be a good idea to know what all we're getting into for it.
[gets notepad and adjusts glasses] Agreed.
I wouldn't mind getting a bit more information on it as well.
OK. I didn't actually watch any of Splash Star for one main reason: it's very similar to the first two seasons. You have a sport redhead and a brainiac purple-haired girl who start off kind of at odds with each other, they get visited by two fairies, they become Splash Star PreCure.
Most of the season was Toei's attempt to walk a fine line between rejecting all the tropes that had made them so much money in the previous two seasons because they were told that audience wanted something different, and sticking to said tropes because they were providing Toei with mad money.
As a result, there a bunch of tiny differences between the seasons that are absolutely meaningless, though I've heard Splash Star finds its own identity about halfway through the season. Until then, they're basically just a discount Nagisa and Honoka, by virtue of Nagisa and Honoka being first. Later on, they will gain useful barriers, and be generally a bit more mystically inclined than ol' Punch and Judo (:V)
(But I shouldn't mock Nagisa and Honoka too much. In the fourth All-Stars movie, they managed to block a runaway freighter ship that was sliding down a ramp of slime that the villain of the movie had created. They basically just hit it really hard once, except it didn't crumple at all. It just STOPPED. This freighter had bowled over the two newest Cure teams without any effort when they tried to stop it.)
That all sounds pretty disappointing. Thanks for explaining.
It is, kinda, but it gets a little better. Also, Mai and (I think) Saki have a bit more ranged attack focus, so they aren't as goofy-statted as other Cures. That is, if Moe's doing the stats that way…
Splash Star has an opposite flow as compared to the first season. The original PreCure came out strong(ish, Pissard was a weak opponent, but even he had his moments) and had a lackluster second half. Splash Star is a fun retread of the first season for the first half of the season, and then it does its own thing for the second half and is better for it.
The finale of Splash Star is amazing, but if you haven't watched the whole season, please don't spoil yourselves.
At it's core, both shows are monster of the week shows with an overarching plot. The episodes themselves are pretty interchangeable, and I'm more referring to the season-spanning plot when I rate the stories.
This is all true from what I've seen and heard.
Still going on record as saying that my favorite seasons are any seasons where the two major words start with H and C. That is to say, HeartCatch and Happiness Charge!
HeartCatch is just distilled awesome (complete with a pregnancy visual gag), and Happiness Charge's only shortcomings lie with the god who acts as mission control for the Cures, along with the two sisters who could *almost* be as awesome as Cure Moonlight if they were fused together.
Fortunately for that season, the final story arc is pretty great in how it stretches the characters, and Cure Honey is literally the second-best Cure of all from a literary character standpoint, only under (obviously) Moonlight.
This all reminds me, please don't squander Nanase Yui like Princess PreCure did. She deserves so much more than the hand that season dealt her ;_;
Random note, but has anyone else checked out Warriors All-Stars at all? I'm enjoying it so far.
Though I've somehow managed to turn poor Sophie into the biggest pervert. She's walked in on every guy in my army in the bath so far to the point it's become a running gag.
Not yet. Maybe I can convince my friends to buy it, since they actually have a PS4.
Said friend really enjoys most of the games that show up in that game.
No PS4 (although I see it also has a Windows release), and no time.
I don't usually post here, but this particular situation calls for it. I'm going to be gone for a week to a business convention. I doubt I'll miss anything too naughty, so all I ask is 1. Be a gentleman and 2. Don't get us killed.
Having just gotten back from a convention myself, I wish you luck and chances to relax on yours. :-)
Nan Desu Kan, actually. I was a panelist again. [glows happily]
Oh really? What panel?
I read folk hero stories and fairy tales aloud; works that people stateside stopped hearing after the 1950s.
It really was, and gratifying that people came to hear the stories. I like to think Granma, the original owner of the books, would be very pleased. :-)
Anyway, who're these two new girls on the battlefield, exactly?
Splash Star, the second team of many to come (heh) in the Pretty Cure series.
…Well, that was a thing. So, if anyone else plays Fate/Grand Order, uh, so I won't go into too much detail, but I just got Tuxedo Kamen'd. Glass rose thrown and big dramatic speech when we're in trouble and everything.
This whole arc of the story has been surprisingly great with little jokes like this, but god damn.
I *think* I know what part you're talking about, but I'm only in Orleans, so I'm not sure.
Yeah, I'm still in Orleans. Considering how DARK AND SERIOUS Singularity F was, they've worked in an almost stupidly surprising amount of humor into this chapter.
I also make no excuses for myself as I play this game. I've been playing it for two weeks now and I've got two 4-star Riders whom I haven't even so much as glanced at since summoning them, but Medusa is my strongest character and I've already done Ascension on her. I've only finally had her for about two days now.
I'm towards the end of Rome myself. Been having a lot of fun with it.
It makes me sort of wish we had a quest game going of it here, but it really wouldn't be any different than the Kancolle one in execution and an actual proper FSN quest is something I don't really think anyone can do justice for if they tried it. Fate's a series where it's amazing if you bail it but only a very low percentage of those that try can do so, and failing at it is so much worse than not trying at all.
bail it = nail it, stupid autocorrect.
Welcome back to both Shadow and Moe. I hope the business convention went well and that recovery is quick, respectively.
So, I'm at a thing right now. It's fucking great.
Have a blast, and come back safe.
We got the VIP tickets, turns out. I may have gotten Nobou Uematsu to sign my FF4 soundtrack.
Why yes, I am beside myself at the moment with glee.
So much for getting the update out early this week. Been busy. Should have something out tomorrow.
No rush, no worries.
This new power may seem pretty lame. But I'm looking forward to when you guys figure out how to abuse it. That should be a blast.
Well, it's basically one half of being able to ignore a flashbang going off in our faces, for starters. And Sailor Moon's screaming, obviously. Nothing else immediately comes to mind, but I'm sure we'll think of something.
We really need to figure out a way to see through the Shabon Spray, though. The fog of war thing is gonna catch up to us sooner or later if we don't.
