To preface this post, thanks to all the staff, captains, and participants that made this event possible!
It has been a long time since I have participated in a community and to find this one was a blessing. I joined a few weeks before Battle of the Bands, not knowing what it was. But the banner and the constant announcements about it got me interested.
Fast forward to October 27th, the groupies have been sorted and the battles began. I played around 6-8 hours per day with the missions. And spent some quality group time with the groupies. In the Discord chats and through group battles/missions.
I think the format of the event was very well done and I did my best to support my groupies and everyone during this event!
I accomplished every hard difficulty mission in the BOB which....I did not expect. I never thought I could AP a song (I got two during the BOB). I never thought I could get less than 10 greats on a song (I got three during the BOB). I never thought I could hit Goods and Bads purposely (I learned to hit it precisely and how to get it on demand). I never thought I could play songs on EX over 50 times with consistency (I played Redo over 100 times and Heroic Advent about 40 times in a row to complete missions). I never thought I would find a use for my ability to get a very high number of greats (Many missions required this). I never thought I could count the number of non-perfects I needed during the song and make sure I don't get too many/too few.
You can see how much growth this event can be for a player who is decent at the game. It was very eye-opening and a very good event to teach me new things. I think it was really cool that the missions were do-able even for players who may not be pros/gods at Bandori. The balance was really good, even if some missions were pretty demanding. Persistence paid off! (And some of you might know how persistent I can get)
If anyone reading this out there did not get to participate this year, I hope you can make some time next year to give it a shot! It's definitely something you need to experience. Even if Poppin' Party does not win, I think everyone wins in my book. We all had fun, made new friends, and got to be a part of something awesome. I definitely got so much out of the 4 action-packed days of this event.
I really need a space to vent right now. I'm sorry if this gets to personal or serious.
Two days ago, my mom woke up really early. 3:00 am, she told me. She said her heart was beating weirdly, and that she was scared to go back to sleep because she was afraid she was going to have a heart attack. Personally, I am really scared for her, because this morning, she didn't wake up right away. I am very nervous she could have a condition, and I want her to be safe.
I am very sorry for this giant wall of text, I need a space to breath. Thank you guys.
Update: Thankfully, my mom is going to be alright. We took her to the doctor and she's gonna be fine. Thank you for all the support, I love you all!
Hello guys, Im going to share my big project with you.
Blue Code is my original band, and Ive been woeking on it for 6 months now. And finally, as I wanted, Im releasing a manga. Its going to take a lot of time, and work, and Im 15 so this is completely new to me. Sorry if I make any mistakes. But please follow me with my project, I hope you like my characters, would you like introductions and more information?
This is it, this is the card I need. Not only is it my favorite character's card, it's also my favorite card in the game. It's something out of a dream, it looks like she's flying through the air. The whole card is magical and just perfect, in my opinion. The card I need. Would drop money* for it.
(mind you, I wouldn't blow whole checks for it or rent money, I'd have money set aside for it lmao)
yesterday, there was a convention in my country, and I went there, and was surprised to find Bandori merchandise (it still doesn't get too much content in my country).Obviously I bought all of the merch I found.
The first thing I found where a bunch of Poppin' Party keychains. You all know how much I love popipa,so I had to get all of them, however there was a problem:
There was no Arisa! :( I really hope I get ot find her in the future and reunite them all. It's so sad that there was no Arisa (Alexa pay Chomama), but at least I'm happy I found the rest.
The other thing I found was this:
(Sorry for the light, it was night time when I took this photo)
This came off as a really pleasant surprise, I wasn't expecting to find something bandori related as big as a figure. And it's also really pretty. I'm also very lucky, because it costed me 35€ ( almost 40 in $), but when my brother looked it up in amazon, it costed arround 54€ (which is like 61,50$), so I saved a good ammount of money.
Here' some other pictures of Yukina:
(I really like how that last photo turned out)
Btw, me and my brother where "cosplaying". I put it between "", because it aint really a cosplay. My brother and his roomate made the Persona 5 HUD with cardboard and eva rubber, and people asked us to take photos with the HUD on their sides.
The HUD looks like this for those who don't know:
I don't have a photo of it right now, but I will update it when I do.
