So I decided to do this challenge where it’s like every banner I’m ever going to pull from (I haven’t used a single star yet), I will do some posting before the event. So the event will be up in 6 days (I was planning on doing a week but I forgot about yesterday), so I will be showing the first card and stuff like that. So first card. Kasumi Misaka or Kasumisaka. I want the card because it’s pretty although it’s not my main target in the event. I will still be happy if I get it though because I’m short on 4*s.
Bandori x Zombieland Saga is the best bandori collab (yet)
It’s not just because I’m more hyped because it’s happening now, it really is the best.
Those cards really feel special, like collab cards should be. While other collab cards have normal untrained version, this one has untrained versions that really feel like it’s linked to that specific series. The other collabs that did this were Afterglow’s and Hello Happy’s. The appearances and " vibes " of the bandori cards also matches the Zombieland characters, something that was lacking in some other collab cards.
Yes, technically, this is the collab (with the Hello Happy one) that has the lowest number of songs, but that’s only because there wasn’t any Zombieland songs prior to that. The songs are, in my opinion, the best cover songs that we had for a collab. Not only are they both total bops, but they allow every member (or several for Popipa) to sing, which is always amazing! I love that they are level 26 songs, since it’s, for most players, fun but challenging. I did full combo them, but I had a very hard time with the flicks in those songs. The beat maps are really fun to play.
We have exclusive stickers!!! But not just any stickers: stickers that are all cute and normal but that can also become zombie ones with a BANG. I love it! It’s simple, but it’s really nice.
The series (Zombieland Saga) itself
First of all, it’s happening now. This is the best timing to make a collab since the second season is currently airing. That means everyone that knows about it is already familiar and engaged in it. It increases the hype.
Second, it’s an idol anime, which means that a lot of bandori fans are already engaged in it. Even if Re:Zero is popular, it’s possible that a lot of bandori fans didn’t like it or didn’t watch it. For Zombieland Saga, it’s different. A lot of Bandori fans are into the idol genre and Zombieland is one of the must-watch of the genre. An idol anime collabing with an idol game is a perfect match for the fanbase.
Of course, that’s still just a personal opinion. What about you? What was your favourite collab?
