WELCOME TO: SHOULD YOU SCOUT FOR THE NEW JPN 4 STARS?
i'm your host with a large large spreadsheet and i'm here to show you how the new 4 star hagumi & tae cards match up to the rest of the 4 stars available for them
1. HANAZONO TAE "Charging Power in Progress"
ok,,, in theory, this is the best 4 star tae card. however, her skill compounds itself, meaning that while it's possible to get a 150% score increase, that requires hitting 100 perfect notes in 7 seconds. it's probably more realistic to consider it a 125% or 120% score increase, but it doesn't only apply to perfect notes. either way, this card can rival both tae's dreamfes cards, though the overall power is lower than both. it's a bit of a trade off
2. KITAZAWA HAGUMI "Returning Hundreds of Times, Gathering Good Fortunes"
personally, i value score % above raw power, but this card isn't too terrible for either. tbh, this card is a really really good balance of raw power and score percentage; usually you see a trade-off between the two, but this card has both above average scoring and power potential. i think it could be pretty disgusting(/pos) if you've got your harohapi area items leveled up, but pure isn't a very good typing for them because of kaoru specifically
overall,,, i'm kinda surprised. i didn't expect these cards to be very good at first glance, but they actually compare REALLY well with having the highest combined z-score of their respective characters. i might start doing this more regularly if i can keep on top of releases, who knows. ill definitely plug in the new dreamfes cards and do those in a sec tho, if anyones curious
