Craftegg's blatant Yukina favoritism is making me sick. Other girls like Kaoru, Tomoe, and Tsugumi only have 6/7 4* cards and here Yukina is getting her 11th 4*...
I'm not sure what the fandom is like in Japan, since I only follow up here, so unless Yukina is top shit in Japan, this doesn't make sense.
If any girl should be having an absurd amount of 4s, it should be Kasumi since, I dunno, she's literally the MAIN FUCKING CHARACTER AND FACE OF BANDORI.
Maybe I'm biased because I honestly am not a big fan of Yukina, but I don't think that's the case since I love Misaki, and I still get upset over the fact that she has 10 4s while many other girls are very underappreciated.
In conclusion, Yukina is giving me more reasons to strongly dislike her.
Afterglow’s reasoning for being a band is pretty............slapped together.
Like, the only reason they’re a band is so Ran isn’t lonely. But...they’re only in different classes. I’d understand if it was different schools, but different classes? It’s not that serious.
Afterglow was pretty needlessly dramatic about it too. “Oh no, we’re in a different classes.” “This is the first time this happened” “I sure hope Ran’s going to be alright.” And I’m just over here like “IT’S JUST DIFFERENT CLASSES!”
I mean, come on. They still have before school, after school, meeting up in the hallway during breaks, the weekends. They didn’t seem too bothered at cutting classes meet up with Ran on the roof as she’s writing edgy 13-year-old ‘my soul is so black. No one can ever understand my suffering’ poems so what’s the problem here!
I just wanted to step through my screen and shake this girl and yell out, “RAN, YOU’RE NOT A FUCKING BABY THAT NEEDS PEOPLE TO TAKE CARE OF YOU! YOU CAN SURVIVE A FEW HOURS OF THE DAY WITHOUT THEM! YOU ACT LIKE YOU’RE GOING TO EXPLODE IF THEY’RE NOT WITHIN 2 INCHES OF YOU AND YOU WON’T! YOU’LL STILL BE HERE! YOU’LL STILL BE PRESENT! NOW SIT YOUR EDGY ASS DOWN!”
Did the writers expect me to go “Aww” at the story? Cause I’m not. Instead, I’m going “This premise is so dumb”.
It seemed less of a story of best friends getting together to form a band and more of they need to form a band because Ran can’t function without the others.
i've come to make an announcement, ran mitake is a bitchass motherfucker, she shredded on my fucking wife, THAT'S RIGHT she whipped her red fucking gibson guitar out and shredded on my fucking wife, and then she said her voice was "this big" and i said "thats disgusting," so im making a callout post on my twitter dot com, mitake-san you've got a small voice, it's the size of this walnut except way smaller. and guess what? here's what my voice looks like! hahproooshhh That's Right Babey! all vocal chords, no edits, no autotune, listen here it sounds like Two Sirens And A God. she fucked my wife, so guess what, i'm gonna fuck the earth! that's right, this is what you get, my SUPER LASER VOICE!! except i'm not singing on the earth, i'm gonna go higher. i'm singing on the MOON!! how do you like that marina-san, i sang on the moon you IDIOT!!! you have 23 hours before my teeth fall down and hit the earth, now get out of my sight before i sing at you too.
I got a lot of very agressive and hateful messages from people saying that Bandori Party is useless without cards tracking, so as a human being, I decided to share my feelings.
After I worked so hard for months and really seeing the progress I made in terms of my coding skills and polishing many things, doing an all-nighter the day before and the day after the launch to fix every single bug the minute after it got reported, hearing that’s it’s “half assed” and “all buggy” seriously hurts.
From December to March, I completely re-wrote the engine behind my websites so it’s easier and faster to create new sites. My original plan was to finish that v2, then update Cinderella Producers with it, then update Stardust Run, then start other websites.
When BanG Dream! Girls Band Party came out, I partnered up with a bunch of great people and I put my engine re-writing on hold to work on that one first. We all agreed that it was more important: we wanted to provide the database of cards as soon as possible, which includes transparents, clean arts and detailed stats, which is something that wasn’t available yet. For us, our priority was to get that database available as soon as possible.
I worked my ass off to polish lots of things, a shitton of details work much better than any other of our websites, and it’s also very very easy to use on a developer point of view (which will hopefully bring more developers, I’m really running out of sleep ^^). But now that’s the thing: one of the few things that are missing in the v2 of my engine is a generic way to track cards (or “things”). It could be done manually, like our other websites, but my plan with this re-writing is to avoid manual things as much as possible.
Cards tracking wasn’t the priority in the v2 and I don’t think it should be. Here’s why:
85% of our School Idol Tomodachi visitors only use our website to get cards, idols and songs info. The majority of users who have an account also don’t input their cards. Yes, it’s what I wanted School Idol Tomodachi to be: a tracker, but no, it’s not what it is today.
BanG Dream! Girls Band Party doesn’t have a complete database like that on any other platform, so a new website with the database is a big addition for the community.
Finally, I haven’t seen any other resource get asked for cards tracking. It didn’t seem to be a need within the existing community.
In the end, the only thing I can say is that I learned my lesson. Next time I start something, I’ll make sure that nobody knows that I’m the same person who made School Idol Tomodachi. That’s probably the reason why people had this kind of ecxpectations, which I’ve never seen anywhere else for anybody else.
All of that said, I've seen some positive comments about the new website and according to the traffic we're getting, it seems like people use our new little database of cards and members, so it wasn't useless :) Some people also asked for cards tracking in a much nicer and honest way, which I appreciate. I'm also happy to hear that people want that feature, and I will do my best to implement it as soon as I can.
I think the feature will take me ~4 full days, so I'll either spread that out over the week after I get home from work or do that in 2 big weekends. Hopefully it will be out soon. I'm looking forward to hear your feedback on the new system I'm planning to make and also the other little things our team is working on to make our new little community a fun place :)
Do you ever just get chills over a song from bandori?? A cover or a original song?? Like, you're just so happy listening to them??? Like you love all the characters and knowing their backstories and thinking about the entire band and how they're just so amazing and you just love the voice actors and how they're coming together to make such beautiful music??? Like you just doze off and realize how amazing they're all are??? And then you just,,,appreciate them existing????
of course im not saying this because I'm listening to aftergl I'm not fucking I'm not fucking crying what makes you think that I'm not cr
I’ve been on a long ass hiatus from this game since October. A lot has happened like me traveling to South Korea and just trying to live life to the fullest. I don’t even know what the fuck just happened with this pull but I’m so thankful that baby girl Hagumi came home. (Also the whole Ran/Moca band story 2 set 🤩) Her and best girl Himari were on my scout list for this year so at least I got one. Earlier today I also got Eve, Chisato, and Ako 4*.
