(That’s what I say, but I just want an excuse to express my love for Afterglow.)
Afterglow immediately became my favorite band after starting the game, both in terms of its members and its music. I’m not a music expert, but I feel like Afterglow’s songs have much more variety compared to some of the other bands. For example, That is How I Roll! is a pretty intense song with rebellious lyrics, but then they also have Jamboree Journey, which is imo a cute and upbeat song that highlights the fun of hanging out with friends.
And then there’s the members... All of the other bands have characters that I’m not a huge fan of, but I adore all of Afterglow’s members. With Ran, I like how under the cool exterior, she’s actually easily embarrassed and shows that she cares about her friends through little gestures. Himari is just super sweet, and she’s that one dorky friend that everyone likes to tease. But I also like that they added another layer to her (which I hope they would explore more) when she feels like an incompetent leader at a few points in their band story. Moca seems like a dopey goofball, but she’s actually really perceptive and sensitive to other people’s feelings, and she really treasures her friends. Tomoe surprised me a little - I thought she’s the cool and collected big sister type (which she kinda is) but she’s also quick-tempered, which gives stories with her in it a nice little tension to them. And Tsugu... My best girl... initially, I was a little put off by her character description, that she’s the plainest member and all. I say that because in a lot of anime/games, the plain characters always try to pull some crazy/idiotic stunt to make them seem more “special” which just annoys me a lot tbh (I understand the motives behind their actions, but just the fact that they end up causing so much trouble for the other characters...). But Tsugu, this sweet girl, she acknowledges that she’s plain but isn’t constantly down in the dumps for that. Instead, she uses the fact to motivate herself to work hard and support the other members as well as she could. She has no qualms with just being herself, and she in turn encourages others to be themselves. AND I JUST LOVE HER SO MUCH LIKE-
So there was this guy that I was sort of into.... Just sort of. He plays gacha games and osu, so we started talking about Bandori. Since he’s never played a rhythm game with gacha, I explained to him how cards and scoring works. Then he proceeded to comment that the girls existing in the game is just for fanservice and moe elements. And when I tried to explain that the stories actually have good plots and character development, he just went like, “uh-huh, sure” in that really sarcastic way.
Needless to say, any feelings I had for him flew away. I’m not dating any guys who can’t respect my girls.
the new Popipa cards are all absolutely stunning trained but can we talk about the untrained Kasumi in particular
something about the lighting in this card is just gorgeous to me. it's a bit darker than usual (duh) but it's kinda different from the other night-scenery cards as well ... the hard, dark shadows add to it so much and make the whole art feel very ... solid? not the "eh it's good" kinda solid but rather the "not quite as soft" kinda solid. I usually love the softer feel of the cards but something about this is just?? special idk. and the night sky background makes them pop out so much without creating a grating contrast ... who drew this please give them a raise
