I can feel it. I can feel the "Die." through the screen.

WW match-making is awful, I'm either up against whales who crush me with 100,000+ difference or people who out-do me by 100+ combo but can't match my extremely lucky aqours teams. I swear I'm 1st or 4th every match.

I got matched with the (then) 3rd ranked person in a match earlier this week, and I got failstratted. Like holy poo poo, how much do you need to whale for gems in order to failstrat to 3rd (now 4th, last I checked) place?

Also, Score Match Ranking is super confusing. I still don't understand how it works...

It's still that bad at 17k MMR. My strategy is now "get lucky during off hours, earn enough that you can just step away and aim to bond cards with LP instead".

I hadn't seen those before today actually, but I just saw a green earlier.

I did get crossed-out person the other day (not a very good screencap, someone had just abandoned the match so I had to grab it just after hitting OK to that)

subscript kanji

That idk, because it doesn't show up in the name field, and there shouldn't be enough space for sub/super

But color seems straightforward enough. [rrggbb]. Donno if it actually will let you use the whole spectrum though…

this is the first hit on google for バンドリプレイヤ名

Presumably further down the results is other weird crap you can do to your name.

yeah here y'go

Looks like straight-up bbcode lol (no close tags, which is great for space reasons)

Minor haul from Anime Boston!

The Aqours cord figure turned out to be Chika, and the mini poster was a Ruby. There's a Yohane felt mascot for fun, and the two envelopes contained an SR Riko and an N Fuu, both idolized.

The best gets were that Yohane nesoberi and the Anzu pillow. My friend ended up finding a couple of Yohane nesoberi for sale at one guy's stall and got one for my sake, then I found the Anzu pillow elsewhere.

And I got some other things, like a Konosuba mini poster (thankfully not a lewd one) and some volumes of Kekkai Sensen and Sakamoto desu ga?.

I saw a lot of Guzmas and Team Skull grunts which was wonderful. What a good time.

I'm just really happy I finally have a nesoberi.

Oh, I also found third year mini nesoberi, but ended up just getting one of them - Dia - for my friend's sake. They were the only ones that one vendor had, so I'm glad I found that early enough.
It did feel kinda unfortunate to see a lot of unsold Chika nesoberi though.
poo poo, looks like I seriously missed out on not going to Anime Boston this year... I had totally forgotten when it was being held and by the time I remembered to look it up, I already had a family thing I had committed to on that Sunday (Chinese graveyard visit thing). I mean, I've went up to Boston for AB for Saturday and made it back to NYC on Sunday for the same family gathering two years ago (running into my cousin who was at AB but not dragging him back to NYC with me because he was the one slated to be driving his friends back on Sunday evening) but I didn't have the money available to pull it off this year unfortunately.

Dammit, I really want a nesoberi now... Those blind card envelopes look pretty tempting as well... Guess I'll have to wait to see if a vendor at NYCC (or maybe that new show AnimeNYC or perhaps even Liberty City Anime Con) stocks some. Been hoping I run across one at Kinokuniya Bryant Park, but no joy there. Just Aqours CDs and a whole lot of blind box stuff. Picked up Strawberry Trapper two months ago right before the Aqours First Live screening, and got a clear file blind set last month (which turned out to be my two least favorite Aqours, Riko and Kanan. Gave away the Kanan one to a barista at my regular Starbucks who also plays LL and likes Kanan a lot more than I do). Probably gonna head back for another go at the blind clear files and hopefully pull a Yoshiko, as well as pick up another CD, likely Daisuki Dattara Daijobu when my refund check comes in.

The blind card envelopes are okay, just one idolized card illustration and a group image postcard in each envelope. They were selling them as $7 a set of premium/regular.

Best of luck on your hunting; I'm actually gonna try my hardest to see if I can squeak going again next year, given family event preferences around the time period, and if you're there, I'd be down to meet, even if briefly.

Nah, I have to fly up and I go to Boston cons because my friends usually do. There's a chance I might Otakon funnily enough because a friend's going to be living in the area.

I met a nice weeb from Georgia in the big tournament I attended yesterday. We ended up talking about LL a lot and he agrees that Yohane is best grill from the new series. Sadly, he said he doesn't go to Otakon because there's plenty in the Atlanta area anyway and it's a long drive. I'm now looking forward to getting a Yohane neso from Otakon and hope there's plenty of other merch to get on top of that. I hope they make LL drawstring bags because I'd love to use one for the gym. I also entered my Miku ship in the painting competition and hope it does well.

So yes, you can use any RGB color you'd care to, although there are plenty that are unsuitable. Much like the white stars that trail your finger on loading screens (which you can't actually see 99% of the time), if it's too light it'll be invisible, and if it's too dark it'll be hard to tell from black.

But it does apply everywhere your name is, including the story and in the log. Which works out great, because without the regular text for contrast, you'd be hard pressed to tell this from black


It's green, I promise
timg'd because it's a bit easier to tell at full resolution, I think. Doesn't really matter either way, though…

However, using colors does limit you to a two-character name. And you can't cheat it with halfwidth — or rather my phone doesn't do it, so I just copied some and it counted ゼas two characters. (So does BBCode/html, I guess) Well, that wasn't too likely to work anyway, it's not like the limit's a 40-col display or anything.

You know, I'm always impressed by these [IM@S Song] [Random goddamn genre] mixes. They almost always sound like terrible ideas and then they work real nice anyway. Like this, you'd expect the thing to fall apart, but it's fine, mostly.

shame that i listened to it with headphones and am now annoyed at how the guitar feels like it's just in the right channel

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKSRHyDb3sw
That's what I picked for the unit song, incidentally~
(I like videos that point out who's singing what, because I'm awful at recognizing voices)

I don't entirely get the point of the room thing, but it's kinda neat.

The right button closes the room, left changes the difficulty. It doesn't actually take SP to open a room, it just tells you the cost when you open one.

Look I can make Sae say Sae! But it's meant to take the place of the random matching, and it stays open for two hours (idk if it closes automatically after you play). It just kinda seems like since you'd still need to be online at the same time, you'd spend a lot of time waiting around? Maybe it sends you a notification when someone joins or something. Idk, it'd be kinda neat if it was asynch or something.

…actually, I don't think I tried the "live start" button down there at the bottom. I wonder if it does anything when you don't have a full set?

Also a neat thing I'd not noticed is that the life boost for the rhythm position apparently applies to their center boost, for some reason. I have no idea why, since they're clearly not the center, but I suppose it also gets boosted if they're the center then?

that's normally 20%



Also, hat tip to this guy for taking random english to a new level

I hope so, because it seems they've written up different explanations for paths A–I, and that's great.

There was a gap between the first event and the 2nd one. The 3rd one sprung up unexpectedly though. I have a feeling they noticed a dropoff between events, since there's not much incentive to play since there's no clear bonus for songs or daily song, other than logging in, so maybe they're springing events to keep people actively playing.

Yeah, I guess once you've run out of stories and gotten all the songs there's not much point in playing in between. Still, that seems like a dodgy strategy. Event fatigue and all.
