Love Live School Idol Festival: Before the Event #3

Hey everyone. It’s Deven Luca and I’m coming at you once again with another Love Live School Idol Festival Post.

Okay so this event is Junsui Sengen or Innocent Declaration in English.

341px-SR_189_Honoka_Event

So it’s a Super Rare Honoka! Not really a big favorite. On my Favorite Muse Members, Honoka ranks out at number 7.

Just so you know my list is:

1.Nozomi Toujou
2.Eli Ayase
3.Hanayo Koizumi
4.Maki Nishikino
5.Umi Sonoda
6.Kotori Minami
7.Honoka Kousaka
8.Rin Hoshizora
9.Nico Yazawa

So just so you know I’m not knocking Honoka, I love all the girls of Muse but there can be only one and for me that’s Nozomi!

Anyway here we go!

Stats

Rank:47
Until Next Rank: 566 EXP
Love Gems:1
Gold:455,500
LP:48

Strategy

Oh no! Everyone look! A Pure Event! My worst nightmare!

So since I have consistent internet(relatively consistent. I’ve got internet issues again. Every damn time!), I don’t have the problems with getting on…much.

The real problem is I have a horrible Pure Team. Granted I have a SR Maki that can turn all my Greats into Perfects and I have three Fully Idolized and Leveled Pure Rares but that’s it. I only have 4 good Pure cards.

So in that is my strategy, avoid playing Pure songs as long as possible.

So I’ve been getting good at Natsuiro 1, 2 Jump and I’ve gotten a handle on Oh Love and Peace. So my strategy is to basically get all my Tokens from these songs and any song that I’m good at.

Then I’ll try and soldier through the Event Song, Pure Girls Project(A Primtemps Song) as best as I can.

Goals

Despite my lack of ability for Pure songs, I still want this Honoka card. Why? Because if I can get it then I’ll have two SR Pure cards and that’s good for my team.

Break Even

So I’ve got to get my Break Even…I only need to get one Love Gem. Also I plan to post a way to get Love Gems relatively easily during the Event. So look forward to that.

That’s good!

So that’s my plan and my Break Even!

Wish me Luck! I’m going in!

Until After the Event,
Later Days

Love Live School Idol Festival: After the Event

Hey everyone. It’s Deven Luca and I’m coming at you with another Love Live School Idol Festival post.

So on today, November 14th, the Event Second Round Score Match ended so I’m here to report my progress.

Stats

Rank:46
Until Next Rank:817
Love Gems: 0
Gold: 382,500

Strategy

Kotori is mine! I have the Kotori card! Yes!!!

So on the final day of the event around 2 in the afternoon, I got the last bit of points I needed to get the Kotori Card.

I did really well. I kept everything on alarm to make sure that I played right on schedule. Of course I dropped the buck on Sunday when I went to the library and didn’t play the entire day. So based on that, I should have been able to get Kotori card yesterday instead of today. But hey it’s better to get it at all rather than not have it at all.

Goal

Ouch! Ouch! It hurts to be this awesome! Kotori!

2014-11-13 14.09.33

So since I’ve gotten it, I guess I’ll explain it. It’s of course a Cool card with a base Cool score in 3530. It’s got the ability known as Angel? Nurse?, which makes the score jump by 1250 every time score hits 18,000 with a 14% success rate.

It’s a pretty awesome ability and on hard songs it’s going to go off at least a few times.

Break Even

I didn’t break even. I didn’t get any Love Gems…well I did but I spent them really quick.

2014-11-13 23.24.45 2014-11-13 23.25.00

So nothing really got better on the Smile side, I just fully levelled up my SR Rin and started levelling my UR Eli.

Same thing on Cool too.

So everything went well on this and the next event is called Junsui Sengen with a Honoka Card on the line. I’ll be telling you what the English name once it comes around.

So until the next event, where I hope I’ll get a card

Let’s Look: Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 32 Super Mini Review: Where Do You Find Fish? Umi-Dah!

I have to do it! I dare myself.

sVNKR89

It’s a joke people. Princess Hisui voiced by Suzuko Mimori returns!

Note: I am epically behind. I’m writing this review on Friday November 14th. And if you didn’t know, Fairy Tail comes out on Fridays later tonight. And with Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works coming tomorrow I’ve got to get through this backlog. So comes a Super Mini Review.

So the episode opens up with Princess Hisui and Arcadios walking around with pumpkin hats, planning to go to the Fairy Tail Guild Hall.

They end up meeting Natsu and the group after their beatdown by Virgo. Hisui explains that the current events are her fault. The reason is that the Eclipse Gate’s magic had a major effect on the Celestial Spirits and the world at large which basically explains why the weather’s acting up and the Spirits are going loony.

She also explains that she is a Celestial Wizard who invented some unique Silver Keys that can force close the door between the world and the Celestial Spirit’s World.

Sounds good right? Someone may want that, right?

So a fish dude with a shark comes around and Yukino explains that it’s Pisces. Gosh, remember when the Mom of Pisces was hot. I’m trying after seeing this.

So Natsu being Natsu tries to fight them but it’s a stalemate between him and the Son. After that it’s a pretty confusing fight. Arcadios jumps in and gets knocked around. Yukino tries to fight but gets handed to her. The Spirits look like they sucessfully escape with the keys but turns out that Arcadios swapped the cases. Clever man.

I’m giving Fairy Tail Episode 32 a 6/10. It’s not really all that interesting. I was going to give it a five but Umi…I mean Princess Hisui is there. Can’t give it a bad number with her in it. It reflects bad on Umi.

Anyway with that I just need to do two more reviews, Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works Episode and this week’s Trinity Seven.

Until Next Week,
Later Days

Let’s Look:Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 29: Giving The Spirits Their Wishes!

Feel free to read the review but to be straight nothing major happens. You can skip it and go straight to next episode without missing much.

So this episode doesn’t have much stuff to work with so it’s going to be a kinda short.

So Lucy and Yukino along with Natsu and Happy go up the Hill of Stars to summon all 12 Celestial Spirits to thank them for closing the Eclispe Gate during the battle against the Dragons.

So Lucy and Yukino decide to summon each Spirit one by one to let them have any wish they want from them.

And that’s it! I could really end the review there and you’d be ready for the next episode.

However I respect you all too much for that and I’m listening to ‘See You at the Elementario’ by Brilliant Four(The Ending for Amagi Brilliant Park) so I’m in the mood for some extra stuff.

So I’m going to heroically count down my top favorite moments in this one. That counts as a review? Right?

Anyway coming in at number 10 is Libra!

Libra is the Spirit of the Scales and she belongs to Yukino. So what do you want Libra?

That’s it? You can see why it’s number 10…

So moving on number 9 is Aries!

Aries is the Spirit of the Ram and she belongs to Lucy. So what could she want?

Snapshot_7

She wants a tan? We’ve got tanning beds for this…

Snapshot_8

Too much dude…

Snapshot_9

Well at least she’s happy…

Coming around the park at number 8 is Taurus!

Taurus is the Spirit of the Bull and he belongs to Lucy. We all know he’s a S-Class pervert so what does he want?

Well he’s got good taste…and with that he heads home.

Around at number 7 is Cancer!

Cancer is the Spirit of the Crab and he also belongs to Lucy. So what could a hairdresser from the sea want?

Hmm so how it turn out?

Snapshot_17

Hahahaha but this reminds me of the Tarturus Arc when…I can’t tell you sorry. I’m not going to give spoilers for you anime only viewers.

At number 6 is Capricorn.

Capricorn is the Spirit of the Goat and he also belongs to Lucy. So let’s get it to it.

Snapshot_18

Snore

What?! What?! I’m awake! He just started reading and I just blacked out for a minute.

So now we’re getting down to the good ones.

Coming in at number 5 is Gemini.

Gemini are the twin Spirits of the …well the Twins and they along belong to Lucy. Love these guys.

Hahaha it hurts to laugh so much.

Coming in at number 4 is Sagittarius.

Yeah he belongs to Lucy too and he’s the Spirit of the Archer.

Oh god! It hurts! It hurts to laugh this much. Not only does Happy get a afro but it gets cut by an arrow!

Next up at number 3 is Leo.

He belongs to Lucy and he’s the Spirit of the Lion and leader of the Zodiac. He’s also a member of Fairy Tail but that’s another story.

So what do you want Loke?

Hmmm I completely agree! Soft soft, white hair, curvy figure! I’d go for her too!

Close to the number 1 is number 2 is Pisces.

They belong to Yukino and they are the Spirits of the Fish. So what do they want?

Ah the sweet irony! The fish eats the cat! Hahaha good one!

The great number one is Aquarius.

She belongs to Lucy and she’s the Spirit of the Water Bearer.

Aquarius isn’t my favorite because of the comedy but because of the bond that she has with Lucy.

Aquarius is the first Spirit that Lucy obtain after her mother died. And because of being rich, Lucy didn’t have any friends so Aquarius was the only companion she had.

So Lucy does a little play with Yukino to try and make Aquarius laugh. It doesn’t work…epically and she ends washing them out and Lucy gets hung on a branch on a cliffside.

Aquarius pulls her off and puts her under a blanket so she won’t get a cold. She has a flashback of Lucy when she was younger.

Now we all know that Aquarius is …not a friendly person but Lucy did love her and cherished playing with her.

As we can see through the flashback, Aquarius cares for her too.

This last part could actually work in the canon since it really enhances a certain part of the Tarturus arc when Lucy summons Aquarius.

I could tell what happens but why spoil you? All I have to say is that I really hope that Eri Kitamura and Aya Hirano can give it their all in that scene.

So the episode ends with Lucy and Aquarius sitting down and looking at the stars.

Snapshot_46

So it was a funny episode and the part with Aquarius was really nice. So I’ll give Fairy Tail 2nd Series Episode 29 a 7/10 for good feels and some good comedy.

Now things are serious! The filler arc is coming next week. I hope it’s good. Although I really wished that they adapted A Day with Asuka and 419 Days. But hey they’ll do it someday.

But next the next review,
Later Days

Love Live School Idol Festival: How To Do Your Events New Version!

Continue reading “Love Live School Idol Festival: How To Do Your Events New Version!”

Featured post

Let’s Look: Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works Episode 0: What’s Studio Deen?

Inner Anime Lover: Deven what’s Studio Deen?

Deven: They’re the studio that did the original Fate Stay/Night back in 2006. You remember. We watched it to prepare to review Unlimited Blade Works.

Deven watched Ufotable’s version of Fate Stay/Night

Deven: What the fuck is Studio Deen?

Inner Anime Lover: What the fuck is it indeed my man.

Brothers and sisters in Fate Stay Night, Forget Studio Deen’s adaptation of our beloved Fate/Stay Night. It was merely a illusion placed in our minds to confuse from the truth!

And that truth is Studio Ufotable’s adaptation!

This episode just started the hype and the hype can’t be stopped. I’m shaking from the awesome. I got the episode to review on Sunday and it took me an hour just to get myself mentally prepared.

Enough of me blabbing.

I’m going to keep it a bit short on these first two since they’re hour long episodes. Don’t worry. I’m not going to skip the good stuff.

So we start off the episode with Rin as a kid seeing her father off as he participates in the 4th Holy Grail War.

Side Note:If you want to see how he did, go watch Fate/Zero. Also done by Ufotable. These freaking geniuses

So Rin wakes up from a dream to realize that she’s late for school.

Snapshot_1

She gets dressed and walks to school only to realize that her clock was an hour fast so she’s really early.

So I’m not going to go through the whole day so I’ll just list through it and do a pic spam afterwards.

She meets Mitsuzuri and she asks if she watch the archery practice. Rin says no as Sakura Mato comes in. She leaves the archery area and sees Shinji Mato and totally rejects him.

He deserved it. He needs to get his ego deflated. She walks through the school and meets with Taiga Fuijmura as well as Issei and even our main male protagonist, Shiro Emiya but we only see the bottom of Shiro’s face.

So like I said, I’m not going to go through entire day since it’s quite slow paced. So I’ll just skip right down to when Rin gets home.

Snapshot_8

While she was out at school looks like she got a message from Kirei Kotomine…Kotomine…

Sorry he’s an evil dude and I remember what he did in the Fate Route.

Side Note: I’m currently converting Fate Stay Night the Visual Novel so I can play it on my tablet. I can’t wait to play it for myself.

Anyway Kotomine explains to Rin that 5 of the 7 masters have been chosen and thus only the Archer and Saber classes are left.

So this sets in Rin’s mind that it’s time to do her summoning.

So remember when Rin got to school really early. It’s going to come up soon. See she managed to crack a code on her Dad’s stuff and breaking the code messed with the clocks, setting them all forward an hour. Now that’s going to be really important.

So Rin prepares her circle to summon an Saber class servant.

Snapshot_9

Okay Rin you can do this!

So Rin completes the summoning and summons…

Snapshot_10

I didn’t even know that sitting could look so badass…

Anyway so Rin confirms the contract and what does Archer do? Starts snarking! I love this guy.

He snarks about she’s a weak master, her young age, and how she should just sit around in a cellar somewhere while he’s out being badass. And it turns out that because her clocks were an hour fast Rin was early for 2 AM for when she was her strongest. So she missed out on summoning a Saber class Servant.

Wow I’ve never seen so much snark so fast and I’d like to consider myself an expert at snark.

So just literally after barely taking a breath from so much snark, Archer makes Rin so mad that she uses a Command Spell to force Archer to obey her commands.

Note: In the Fate Stay/Night Universe, Command Spells can be used to force a Servant to do an order. For example, during the Studio Deen version Shiro had to use a Command Spell to get Saber to stop fighting Archer. You can also use them to give your Servant a boost in power

So after losing control and using a Command Spell, Archer and Rin shift to the living room to continue their conversation. After seeing Rin’s power in action Archer acknowledges her power and accepts her as his Master.

And you know what’s her first order for her Servant?

Snapshot_12

He’s a powerful Servant. A Heroic Spirit that has no doubt saved countless lives and done great things in his time. And you’re asking him to clean the living room…

Snapshot_13

See even he’s shocked!

So Rin wakes up, too late to go to school, and goes downstairs to the living room.

Snapshot_14

So Archer made tea and now it’s time to get down to some serious business. Unfortunately Archer can’t remember who he was.

Note: Heroic Spirits are beings from various points in history, either the past or the future. They can be anyone who has done what was called the ‘impossible’ in their day or was a person of great power. Just some of the Servants I can mention are King Arthur(Saber), Medea(Caster), Medusa(Rider) and Hercules(Berserker) and there’s hundreds more.

So Rin takes Archer out for a day to scout the city and it’s a pretty boring one so I’ll just pic spam again.

Now this is what you get when you do good work people. Massive budget! This looks like they threw all their money into the first episode! But you know what’s the best part! They haven’t! It’s just going to keep getting better!

So after that we see this.

Snapshot_22

Who is that? I mean I know who it is. I’ve watched the original anime but hey you that haven’t seen don’t know who that blond guy is. Well he’ll be important(read:dangerous) later.

So the next morning, Rin calls Kotomine and tells him that she’s officially a part of the Holy Grail War and to put her on the list.

Then she leaves for school. Once she crosses the grounds, she notices something.

Snapshot_24

Wow! Turns out that there’s a barrier around the school and when it activates it will suck everyone’s souls to power a Servant.

Think Kurumi’s Time Draining Castle from Date A Live. It’s like that.

So Rin resolves to do a little messing around with the mystery person’s barrier.

Unfortunately she runs into Lancer.

And cue epic battle between Archer and Lancer. This shows just how much awesomeness Ufotable can put into an anime.

So freaking beautiful.

Snapshot_29

No Rin. This is what happens when Ufotable has control!

Anyway the battle ends prematurely because someone is observing the battle and with the Holy Grail War no one must know. If you find out…then you die.

Just ask this guy.

Snapshot_30

And because of her kind heart(it’s there, you just got to look deep), Rin heals Shiro and she asks Archer to track down Lancer. At least this battle won’t be for nothing…

However it is. Archer couldn’t track him down so what do they get out of this?

Snapshot_31

A freaking battle against Saber!

And that people is what ends the episode.

I can’t breathe! The Hype! The Hype man!

This is going to be one of the best Fall Seasons of all time and I’m happy to be a reviewer during it!

Next time we’ll see Saber full out in action.

So guys need to come back if not for Saber who else…Archer of course.

Anyway Until next time,
Later Days
