News post: >>118846883
Rin is my wife.
Sometimes we like to do kinky shit.
Despite the look on her face this was her idea.
Shiki is a cuter cat than Miku
Would you prefer if she dressed as a different kind of vampire?
>making excuses for early threads
Funny considering the shitstorm a few weeks ago.
I get it now, you made a early thread and got bitched at you're still salty, got it, now fuck off.
Every time I listen to Trancing Pulse I like it even more; everything about it from the vocal arrangement to the instrumental score is perfect to me. Even better is that a Triad Primus song finally happened after all these years, like a dream coming true.
So what's that "Every day until (unit) gets a song" /@/ is still waiting for to happen? Maybe a Jougasaki duet? Positive Passion song?
Kyoto to get a voice first, and then aPink Check School song?
There's nothing I wouldn't give for more PP.
What? Are you saying you don't want to imagine sinking your fingers into Sachi's soft abdomen, poking her cruelly, testing where do you have to push so she finally starts crying?
Hikaru and Reina duet.
It's been several months and I still don't recognize any of the voices on the Absolute NIne CD.
I have a belly fetish anon pls don't do this to me.
You really don't have to try so hard
I'd like Syuko and Sae to get a song, also obviously stuff like PP and 142s, but what I'd like the most is Kaede and KWSM getting a song together, since one clearly does not exist and you won't convince me otherwise
Pleb. I could recognize my girl even though I'd never heard her singing voice before.
What kinds of things would you do to Sachi-chan's belly?
Reminder that Kaoru (Chihiro) is the one who's the best.
I can get some of the obvious ones, Miku and Kaede are very distinct, as well as Takumi. It's Syoko, Yumi, and Shiki that are throwing me off. I'm sure once they have solos it will be a lot easier to tell them apart.
Wish I'd have done this with a proper team, but I can't really complain.
>Syuko and Sae
Still can't pick Syuko's voice out of Absolute NIne or Tsubomi, but this would be nice out of Kyoto-flavored principle alone.
>Everyday until Asuka gets a voice
Shiki's solo line is at 1:42.
I'll savor Syuko's flavor all year round.
SSR: Miku and Kanako.
SR: Syoko, Kaoru, Natsuki, Aiko, Yuki, Mika, Miria, Honoka, Koume, Yukimi, Anya, Minami, Karen, Usamin, Miho (two different ones), Saori, Chieri and Frederica. Some of them repeated twice or thrice.
16 and 1.
Though I still have 10k jewels saved up. The one 10 pull I did was for Aiko.
1 Kirari SSR
A bunch of SRs, mostly cool (Koume, Karen, Kaede, Riina, etc.)
Oh shit, it was, wasn't it? And I slept the day away...damn, I've been wanting to draw Rina lately, and I missed out on a birthday piece. Oh well, I'll still draw her.
>Syuko SSR in future event
Watch it happen.
>Airi will get nothing
Watch that happen too.
Flavor of several months for several years now.
One Miku SSR, no SRs (because I haven't rolled with my stash of Nebula Currency yet).
No, you kill yourself. If you are unable to kill yourself, get someone to kill you for you.
I meant Kyoko.
>Airi will get nothing
But Airi already has an SSR, as expected of the First Cinderella. In fact, every election winner has an SSR, two of them also have SR, one is getting an SR in the upcoming event. That leaves us with Syuko, which has nothing, at least for now.
Next LTD preview coming tomorrow or at least this week if not.
Was the anon in the last thread joking about Momoka being leaked in SS
I really like 乙女よ大志を抱け! lately. I don't normally check the lyrics translation unless some song grows on me, so I don't know if it's usual occurrence, but given its lyrics, it feels kinda awkward watching it sung live in front of thousands of sweaty dudes
Cute Sachiko's alluring body gets everyone lovesick, huh?
This will shoot Sachiko's time to shine through the roof, there's no mistaking it, haha~
By the way, what's this pattern on my belly for?
Added commu for Haruna. Currently missing Tomoka and Ayame, will record their commus as soon as they are obtained. Also redid commus for Mayu and Mika with audio.
Kamijo Haruna Commu 02:
Sakuma Mayu Commu 01 (audio):
Jougasaki Mika Commu 01 (audio):
Jougasaki Mika Commu 02 (audio):
I only recently realized the meaning of "mile" in that.
Pretty cool that they did that but screwed up Anya's title.
This is one of those times where it's both technically grammatically correct to say "You are stars" but also...not, because English is contradictory like that with contextual rules. I wish I could explain it.
I sure hope so as well, I want to see that super cool hat in GB art.
>tfw cool idols are my favorite but i have mostly passion SRs and my only SSR is passion
I would trade places with you in a heartbeat. I got a Rin SSR and all my strong SRs are Cool. I started out wanting to be a PassionP and I still do.
I love how her De Dice costume is a fantasy version of her Rare+ card, the hat is a nice touch.
What stand is that?
Nation Blue holds a special place in my ear canal, because the (whatever) jewelries! 001 albums were the first CG albums I listened to. Back then, I was literally just getting into CG right before those albums were released, so when they were released, I downloaded those first since they were a numerous compilation of CG VAs in a mere 3 CDs, and I didn't yet find a way to scour for all of the CM singles. That song might as well have been the first CG song I listened to. I personally like it because of the EDM-heavy musical score and the vocal arrangement all-around; each idol/VA has their own distinction, so it's easy(ier) to pick their solo lines in a group song like this, and it gives the song varied flavor.
But that's just me.
I tried to roll for a Rin SSR, but settled on the Miku SSR that I got since I didn't want to press my luck passing up something/anything that's hard to get in the first place. I'd love a Rin SSR, or even a Ranko SSR, but maybe some other time.
>my next 10 roll gives me another Miku SSR
>select all images with fish
>anzu's song in pro is harder than half of the songs in master
>no Cute loli SR
>only Cute lolis left is Kozue and Momoka
Man back in the day I thought Mio was awakened Miki. Simpler times back then.
I could not look back
You'd gone away from me
I felt my heart ache
I was afraid of following you
When I had looked at
The shadows on the wall
I started running into the night
To find the truth in me
I just can't get into Nation Blue. I don't know what it is about the song but it's not catchy and it lacks, I dunno, punch? Impact/strength? The first time I listened to it was on recommendation from /@/, and I just felt totally unimpressed.
It lacks a part of the song where it just goes off. Not sure how to explain it since I'm not a musicfag, but for example, the chorus in Atashi Ponkotsu Android ramps up from the rest of the song. First time I listened to Nation Blue I wasn't even really sure whether I just listened to one verse the entire time
Yes, J-List is an awful shithole
Yes, that's exactly what I mean. A song either has to have some catchy hook, have energy, or build to something. I don't feel like Nation Blue does that at all. They sound fine, but the song itself is just weak.
I might try that.
Then please, tell me why it's good to you.
I don't think Nation Blue is the first CG song I've heard, but it's definitely remained as my favourite one for the longest time. I'm glad it's generally well received.
Sweaty fingertips while playing Starlight Stage leads to missed held notes. Be a good Producer, and keep your fingertips clean and dry!
>JList had a random picture of Rin over a blurb about in-stock calendars
>no iM@S calendars offered at all
I mean half of the Facebook page is literally image dumps. I don't even know why the fuck I follow that page (much less most pages...or even get on FB in the first place).
It's fitting for a Cool song. A Cute song might have expected perkiness, and a Passion song will obviously be genki as fuck, but Cool songs usually have that subtle power demeanor. There's no need for a ramp-up because the chorus literally sings for itself, a stark all-vocals power contrast to the soft solo vocal arrangement of the verses; even the bridge does just that, only with solo line flavor.
>After spending all your stam, 400 jewels, and drinks
What level are you? Since the event started I've gained went 55-58 just from playing normally whenever I had some spare time, and that includes stam lost because I was busy sleeping, socializing, classes/work, etc.
>There's no need for a ramp-up because the chorus literally sings for itself
It lacks STRENGTH though, even if it's good. There's just no energy. It's like glass, pretty but fragile, whereas it could have been diamond.
The beat is fast and the vocals are good but it doesn't go anywhere. I just feel like it has potential it doesn't reach. But it's clear you won't tolerate different opinions so there's no point trying to reason with you politely.
But we can agree that Susume Otome is the best at least.
Mayu really deserves more recognition for her pretty singing voice. Her cover song is one of my favorite CG tracks, and the lyrics fit her personality perfectly.
I'm not sure what you mean by strength, but you can't really expect there to be high-paced power vocals in a song like that; the BPM is actually relatively high, but the musical score has a lot of bias to the mid/low-end of the balance spectrum. The music-vocal composition wouldn't work if they sang with the vocal notes higher than what they were already singing at.
I like the CP version best. It's easier to distinguish each voice in the type versions, but I think that the CP version better gives off a sense of togetherness, if that makes any sense.
Look at my posts. Where did I even mention that song? I was only talking about Nation Blue. Ponkastsu Android isn't a high impact song either. It gets it's strength from being stupid and catchy, not from being musically powerful. Don't put words in my mouth and then act offended just because I'm not a fan of a song.
Why hasn't anyone posted about this thread here?
>But it's clear you won't tolerate different opinions
Not him, but that's rich, given that this whole argument pretty much started from "I don't get why people like Nation Blue"
I dunno, I just feel like it was supposed to build to something and then didn't. And I've said, the vocals sound good, there's nothing wrong with the actual singing, it just doesn't reach anything. It's the fault of the song arrangement itself. The chorus is built to stay at a certain level but it just doesn't leave an impact on me.
Oh Uzuki, you really are Everyone's Idol. You feel everybody's pain.
No really, she really is everyone's Idol. She outright says so in Todoke! Idol's I'LL BE YOO AIDORRUUUUU
I'm not him either, but saying you don't get why people like a song isn't being intolerant of their opinion. He's reasonably trying to argue for his viewpoint without being overly aggressive, the other retard is just calling out names like an idiot.
I never called them idiots for it though, I merely literally lacked an understanding of what made it as popular as it is given my personal experience with it. This whole argument has given me that knowledge, at least.
That's just like, your opinion, man.
Fair enough. Thanks for being reasonable.
These two, they have the cutest reactions.
>I login Everyday
>I rank high in events
>I do 10-roll auditions
>But I don't have a single SSR.
Oh Dooky. I feel you so much. ;_;
The way Nation Blue is constructed, it works the way it's supposed to work, as a subtly-powerful Cool anthem song. There are plenty of songs in iM@S that are thrown together with poorly-planned vocal arrangements and musical scores or don't fit the image that it's supposed to represent, but Nation Blue is definitely not one of them.
There's nothing wrong with the song's composition at all; it's rather perfect, I think, but if you don't like the song, that's fine.
You can dislike Nation blue, that is fine. But calling it "weak" or saying retarded shit like "I don't get why people like Nation blue" is bound to get people angry. Is as retarded as calling Overmaster weak.
I wish the voiced CGs were given more image songs already. The CMs are fine, but most of them only have one song to call their own.
I wish a new CD series would start before Scamco finishes its
rather dumbplan to try and voice every CG.
>I merely literally lacked an understanding of what made it as popular as it is given my personal experience with it.
What I don't understand is why you over-analyse it so much. I listen to a song, I either like it or not. I don't ask myself unnecessary questions about why and shit. Why is it popular? Because people have different tastes and enough of them think it's a good song after hearing it, end of story.
Sorry buddy, you got fucked over because Scamco decided to give a fucking CM to Sanae of all fucking idols. You know, the bitch that never ranked high and only got a voice through the anime? Yeah I mean it's not like people paid money for Takumi and Yumi to get high enough for a voice, right? Nah. So let's give it to the gimmick idol who's literally just there because she's a cop with big tits.
I wouldn't call it perfect, but I agree that it's very good.
The version with Miria is the best
He already said he's not the one who said it
Why are you so mad though? It's not like Yumi and Takumi won't get CMs in the next batch.
I've waited this long, I can wait a little longer.
Because of all the fucking idols in this franchise, Sanae is actually complete shit. Her fucking design choice is just as bad as Asari's, and they actually chose to give her a voice, and fucking chose to give her a CM over the people that actually deserved it.
That's just one that gets recommended a lot, and after hearing it and it not living up to what I expected I was curious. Like I said, I know now. And boy will I not mention it again.
Calm down buddy, there's nothing wrong with the sexy cop.
It's like Yuko all over again.
One of my favorites.
No, I don't even mind that she got a voice but to put her ahead and give her a fucking CM is bullshit. Hell, them giving Natsuki a full blown song is bullshit too, but hey she's riding off the curtails of Riina so it's not fucking surprising either.
Yuko actually fucking ranked in the election before they chose her.
Nigga calm the fuck down. I want nothing more that Takumi's CM but I'm not gonna go hating everyone else in front of her. You have enough salt to outright kill three grown men.
The countless rivers of salt have flowed back then, I was very happy to see Yuko's VA perform and have crown cheer for her on that next CG live PV. How times have changed.
This CM wave is 2 Cute, 2 Cool, and 1 Passion.
They obviously didn't want to leave one poll winner to be in a wave by themselves, so they choose to split the hype and release Yumi and Takumi together. Hence why Sanae was pushed ahead. Takumi probably threw them off, seeing as she wasn't one of the three to receive a SR after the unvoiced poll.
I like Natsuki, so I didn't mind her getting a song before her CM. Rockin' Emotion is a good song.
I'm honestly surprised Yui wasn't given Sanae's spot, though.
>I'm honestly surprised Yui wasn't given Sanae's spot, though.
I have a strong feeling Yui's gonna get a CM very soon. Especially considering that, counting this upcoming bacth, Yui is the only member of Project Krone without a CM.
Hey, I don't hate Passion, I just engage in a friendly banter
>We got Foomy
And I'm still mad about that song. Or perhaps disappointed is a better word. Kissdemon's was great though. Also we got Memories.
I want to be here when Chie gets her a CM
You getting pissed off over literally nothing, since Yumi is already guaranteed a CM single after ranking high enough in the 2015 Cinderella Girl election, and CM single releases are released in two delayed batches to even out type count. But how is Natsuki getting a song bullshit? Considering she's one of the original launch-day idols who's had popularity for sometime, but gaining a voice in the anime doesn't necessarily guarantee a CM single herself, so getting an insert song they can call her own image song is a guaranteed better than nothing. And it literally affects nothing as far as CM releases goes since it's not taking up a CM slot, as no one who would be getting a CM release is delayed from getting a CM release.
I feel she'll be in the batch after next, seeing as the next one is 2 Cute, 1 Cool, and 2 Passion.
I'd personally like the batch after to be Yui, Natsuki, Haruna, Yuka, and Chie.
It'll be a fresh batch of fifteen, and will likely have the anime voiced CGs. The poll winners, should there be any, of next year might get mixed in too.
>but gaining a voice in the anime doesn't necessarily guarantee a CM single herself
Sanae and Momoka confirmed that anime voiced CGs are getting CMs. Natsuki is no different, and she owes a lot to Riina.
Tamami also has recorded a song already.
The 2013 election must have been weird for the more pretentious CoolPs.
>Their big three had been anticipated to be Kaede, Rin, and Ranko
>Suddenly, the new Russion Idol without a voice or even a single SR who was just introduced ~3 mere months prior shows up in the #1 spot during the preliminary.
Youre friendly neighborhood Momoka-chama
I forgot to edit that, my mistake.
I meant the batch after next.
I don't really understand this reasoning. Who gives a fuck which cool idols dominate the election as long as it ends up with 4 blues in the top 5? Also, Anya died afterwards anyway.
I was actually hoping that CEO would be the same, too bad it didn't happen
Im going to be in pain unti I can hear Momoka's CM
>yfw you will be underwhelmed by it
She had all the things the Nips wanted and came with a really good impression, it wasn't too surprising she ended up that popular
>Also, Anya died afterwards anyway.
She still does well enough in the annual election and is extremely popular among animefags.
I don't really know how long she's been a CG, and Anya's case was getting extremely popular in a shoty span of time, and I kept hearing something about RankoP's helping her get a voice, but I'm not so sure myself.
Sanae's not a shortstack. This is a shortstack.
>Also, Anya died afterwards anyway.
So she just had to copy Karen's gimmick, too.
Thats not possible, if its Momoka it'll be amazing
I just remembered some anons being particularly salty about it because of the circumstances with it being the first Election to be held post-voices along with CGs starting to be "accepted" as "real Imas idols"
It doesn't matter, as you say, in hindsight, but it was an amusingly big deal back then because of "the prestige of having a voice"
It's more on the case of a very dark horse who could barely walk winning the race, Anya beat a lot of CG's to a voice within a few months of being introduced.
I'd para pa her bum.
Just a reminder that Cool wasn't technically a masterrace yet back then. The only Cinderella was Airi so I don't really see why would they be too cocky or pretentious. Oh and everyone loved Anya anyway.
If you want to talk about an election that CoolPs can be salty about, talk about the first one.
To be fair it's still a big deal. Many people have said that having an unvoiced Cinderella leaves a bad taste. That's one of the reasons why I voted for Kaede in the last election.
There are more ways to measure popularity than by the general election alone, especially considering the "pay to vote" mechanic is not a be-all/end-all justification in the first place.
It may be coincidental, but it's not necessarily "confirming" of anything until the shitload of voices that were gained from the anime all get CM releases, and that's a lot of fucking potential CM releases that won't be seen for a while, IF ever seen at all, considering the length of releases between CM batches.
Which idol gimmick would be the equivalent to crash bomb?
Rockman doesn't skip bosses but he does skip getting those powers. I really wanted to use 2's skill set alongside 3.
Kirari's perhaps? Unless Anya gets beetle/sticker collecting from Rika.
>All these Sachiko haters
Shes the cutest cute though.
