So I listened to romeo and cinderella which is 99% the next popipa cover in collabo with hatsune miku... but, is it just me or the lyrics are really questionable for high school band girls anime tap-tap game? o_O
"slice of life and useless post" chapter 3??? HELL YEAH
Okay I wanted to share the opinions of my mother on some random characters cause why not??
((Just to be clear my mom knows absolutely NOTHING AT ALL about Bandori (and my tastes)))
Tomoe: "WOW!! Well... objectively she's the most beautiful character in this game and subjectively she is my favorite without hesitation. Wait. I-is she lesbian? She seems to be very kind and bold. Let me think, she's your fav, right?"
Kaoru: "Hum sorry but she looks like a pervers... Oh don't tell me that it's your favorite... How old is she? 20? 25? She looks older, mature, haughty and really gay as the previous girl. Am I right?"
Then, she asked me if Tomoe and Kaoru are in couple cause they fit very well together. I C R I E D
Ako: "OOOH DON'T TELL ME ANYTHING!! SHE IS THE LITTLE SISTER OF THIS GIRL! point out Kaoru It was so easy, they are very similar! Well, she's a little bit weird and pervers as her big sis."
Kokoro: "Her hair looks like fries. And she looks like she doesn't know where she is right now..."
Maya: "I-it's me? Is she me? Isn't she so cute?" (my bro replied "yes she is you but more beautiful, thinner and younger." omg bro stop)
Rimi: "She seems lost too... and younger... and very stupid? Poor girl... Wait why she wears horns? (referred to her hair)"
Lisa: "Oh I feel that she has a big heart, she seems very friendly and devoted to her friends! Am I right? She is pretty and sparkling! I like her!"
Himari (my bro starting to jump and yell "yeaaa this is my fav I love her look mom"): "oh gosh so this is the famous Himari your brother told me... hum... yeah... hum... she seems funny and pretty but... why she has such big boobs? hum... sorry... Is she your fav too?"
Arisa: "Yum croissant hair. Next." ((I still haven't understood this))
Hagumi: "Oh gosh she needs to go to the hairdresser... Poor girl..."
Aya: "MADOKA! SHE IS MADOKA FROM MADOKA MAGICA RIGHT? I RECOGNIZED HER HAHA IT WAS A TRAP!"
Moca: "WOW She is my 2nd fav!! I really love her hair!! Good girl!! Isn't she you're fav? She is so cool! W O W"
Michelle: "WHAT THE HECK IS THIS PINK TEEDY BEAR?? You showed me some pretty girls and then you're showing me what? A BEAR? A MASCOT? A PLUSH? I don't understand, what does a bear do here with these girls?? btw it's cute."
Please forgive her, afterwards I explained to her how the characters was and she felt sorry for the characters she "insulted". So her favs are Tomoe, Moca, Lisa, Tae and Ran and her fav band is also Afterglow. I'm so proud of my mom.
For some reason I just love watching all these live show things with the bandori seiyuus even though I have literally no idea what's happening half the time and I don't know what they're saying 95% of the time
Also did I mentioned that my mom had Tomoe on her screen lock since a while?? I showed her the Western card when it was released (so yea in march :v) and she immediately said that she was so pretty and she would like to have the untrained card as her phone wallpaper. She is downright her best girl too. At home we all stan Tomoe and I feel blessed afghdjgd
I don’t know if this has been said, but Ran and Tomoe’s friendship is so underrated. After reading the Growing Up Sisters event, I came to have a new appreciation for how they interact.
When they get really down in the dumps or face a crisis (like Ran in the band story, and Tomoe in the event), they’re both the type to get muddled in their own thoughts, and they try to keep it to themselves. I feel like Tsugu, Himari, and Moca are more of the types to just watch over them, or are softer in their approach to help. While that could be reassuring, I think with people like Ran and Tomoe, it isn’t enough to drive them to pull themselves together.
But Ran and Tomoe are both really straightforward, and they’re not afraid to call each other out when they start retracting into themselves. The tension that results between them could be seen as potentially disastrous by the others, but their arguments help them sort out their thoughts and release whatever stress has been building up. I think they’re able to do this because they understand how each other thinks, and what the other needs to hear.
Their relationship is just really unique, but also refreshing to see, and I just love it so much <3
Hey fam, so I went through Afterglow’s band story and, wow, they’re actually all my top 5 favorite girls now. The story got me pretty emotional at times, and I wa s genuinely laughing at other moments. I think Visual Novels might be one of my favorite video game genres now!
However, another user, AkaneHachi, was asking me to let them know my favorite character from Afterglow, so this is me explaining who it is and why.
Even before reading the story, I could’ve solidly said that it was Ran, but I couldn’t figure out why at first. I had the strongest reaction to her from when I initially got the game; the way she was posing + her design in their 2nd band picture, and even just playing as her in multilives. I just felt the most comfortable and natural seeing her cards and little chibi represent my name while I did my very best.
“She’s pretty cool”, I consistently thought to myself. And yet, that didn’t feel right. I felt like a stereotypical dudebro guy, just going straight for the punk rock band and the obvious cool rocker girl with the rebellious haircut. After going through the band story and “As Evening Clears” though, I’m glad to say there’s more depth behind why I was gravitating towards her.
I really relate to her in so many ways, one way being her father issues. My dad wasn’t part of my childhood at all, and I’ve only had actual conversations with him about seven times to date. Each time, we couldn’t connect and understand each other, so seeing Ran’s dad eventually come around really warmed my heart—maybe that’s something I’d like to have with my dad, although I can’t say for sure.
Another aspect I identify with her in, concerns her struggle to properly communicate. I very much prefer to keep my problems and personal life to myself, as I hate involving others in my stuff. Not a good thing most of the time, but I relate nonetheless, because my tendency to do that has definitely caused some strained relationships for me.
Perhaps what I love most about Ran though, is her outspoken artistry. I relate to it a little too well. It’s like, you take the frustration of your struggles, what you aren’t easily able to discuss with others, and you put it into art form.
For me, I really enjoy writing, and I pour my soul into it because there’s so many things I’m not comfortable to share in a normal conversation. So my writing ends up making me seem like a more open person than I naturally am, and I have a much easier time expressing myself this way. I get the same vibe from Ran and her music honestly.
She’s such a soul rebel, from the hairstyle, to the band she’s in. A lot of stuff about her speaks to her desire to stand out without actually saying much, something that heavily resonates with me. She’s not cold or distant though, and I like how she gets teased for how simple and easily embarrassed she is, while still being quick-witted herself.
I honestly love all of the five characters in this band so much and, outside of Ran, I can’t even decide how they would each line up in my top five. So, if you guys are interested, I might do a little write-up on the other four Afterglow girls and why I think they’re all well-written characters.
do you ever just casually play Multi-Live, picking Random because don't really have any song you wanna play and you're listening to something other than the game audio anyway ... a song gets picked, you look at the note ranking, pick a difficulty level based on it, the song starts, you tap away on the beatmap and in the middle of it you suddenly think ...
