Male Kana is god tier fodder. Brazen def/res is probably the best defensive A skill in the game that isn't steady/warding breath and he has fortify dragons at 4 stars which is nutty. He's also basically another nowi, but limited in merges which hampers his potential a lot. Will probably fodder him once I get him.

The new banner is nice too, and Hinoka is basically a flying brave lyn with armor effective damage (probably better than b!lyn too due to flying being way better than cavalry on most arena maps, and desperation).

I kinda hope the new legendary is a green bow Alm lol.

Nanna was indeed the only one of the Thracia banner to demote to the Uncommon rarity (which brings the grand total of current Uncommons up to six), and it amuses me that there are only 5 5 star Axe units right now (Minerva, Hector, Dorcas, Amelia and Brave Ike).


At least the non-Seasonal Alts have been trying to stay within the realm of being believable alternatives from their source material (Nu Eirika is probably the most extreme edge case so far, but not totally beyond the realm of possibility due to her, and her brother, lacking an alternate promotion to begin with compared to every other promoting character getting one or two; even if the in-game mechanics didn't necessarily support going from Physical to Magical combat, beyond glitches), and hell, Hinoka does deserve the added love since she was pretty badly screwed over in Fates compared to the other Royals.

As for Kaze, my running theory is that rather than another T_T+ in another two weeks, he's the next upcoming Legendary (which is monumentally stupid because he was by far the worst of the three Ninja in Fates, which says a lot considering his massive availability; that A rank or die bullshit was so fucking stupid). Either that, or he's a freebie for Golden Week shenanigans (or better still, he'll be one of the Three Heroes; so you'll get a 3 star version of him just by KOing someone, then you'll have to grind him like a motherfucker to clear his two other related quests as well as getting copies of the other two Heroes).

The one nice thing about the current T_T+ is that a boosted 5 star Reinhardt can easily run roughshod over Lunatic 7 with little trouble, especially with Dancer support (although I've been noticing lately that Olwen II is even more ridiculous since who the hell can take 60+ damage to the face?; plus she dismantles Reinhardt easily enough on the final map).

Jesus. I'm glad I haven't really touched the game since I first beat it back in January.

Also, the Mazinger comparison jokes continue (although Poppi Black would be more of a Getter thing).

Grand Conquests ended up putting me on a crappy team for Round 2 and a pretty good one for Round 3. Much like Voting Gauntlet, the right way of playing is to barely play at all and just use it as free feathers. I still say it's much better than VG though since you aren't expected to play at ridiculous hours to get your personal ranking and the battles are a lot more fun because they let you use a bunch of units you've built instead of the handful of them you were babying for Arena runs on top of the ones from your Friend List.

Anyway more alts instead of new characters. Admittedly I do like the art for this Hinoka though, very fitting of her personality. Tempting as it is to try for her or one of the shiny new skills on the banner, I'll be waiting for whatever the new Legendary ends up being (and a second attempt at getting Ephraim). At least we'll probably be getting Kaze for free, and apparently they decided that Kagami Mochi needed a generic version after all instead of being event-locked. RIP anyone who sacrificed a New Year's Takumi for his overcooked dessert, though I guess we'll only be getting like 2 copies of Kaze so that balances out. I'm also guessing Corrin will be a bonus unit on the next Tempest so we'll probably be getting that Yato Refine pretty soon. We'll see if Corrine gets a unique breath to go with that too.

There was a theory that the new Legendaries coincide with whatever new heroes were most recently introduced, with Ike coming off the Radiant Dawn Banner, Ephraim off that second Sacred Stones banner, and Robin alongside...well, it was a villains banner instead of an Awakening banner, but it still kinda fits. Alongside that recent addition of colored bows I think the prediction that it's going to be a Green Bow Takumi is decently likely (so no Legendary Thracia hero for another 5 years or whatever unfortunately). It's an opportunity to give him a non-crappy version of Fujin Yumi too. Wonder if they'll make him Wind though, since that'd make him kinda redundant with Gunnthra.

As for the current T_T, I'm afk-playing for tons of HM as usual. I have a ton of bonus units and they're all stupidly broken (except for Seliph, who is still a chump). I know some people aren't doing that anymore because you can use that free Legendary Ike to autobattle a bunch of the GHBs for no stamina cost, but personally I think I still prefer doing it on Tempest since it autobattles on its own way longer due to the consecutive stages. Besides, I still have that giant stockpile of Stamina Potions and with that aforementioned change to GHB costs there's nothing else left to use them for.

12 episodes into my Steins;Gate rewatch in preparation for S;G 0.  Remember, kids: watching Steins;Gate subbed is like watching Cowboy Bebop subbed.  You're doing it wrong.

I was never really enamored with Steins Gate (I didn't hate it or anything just say a 7/10). Maybe I did it all wrong.

Nah. This is pretty close to average on the general scale of quality. It has some cute moments, but it takes itself entirely too seriously for a plot you probably already saw on Star Trek: The Next Generation or Deep Space Nine. It's also the one-hit wonder of the Semicolon;@t franchise due to not being entirely overpowered by the Male Wish-Fulfillment Powerfantasy Harem elements that otherwise define the series'.
