Got New Year Kokoro in my daily roll, fun!

I'm almost inclined to believe that Garupa Pico's destruction of Circle is canon given its complete absence. No idea where season 2 is headed, and I imagine people coming just from the first season can't follow anything, but as a fanservice focus first episode it was alright.

Also, the outfits Popipa had in the op are way better than their current default ones. Give them to me now.
There's a pretty big timeskip to season 2 (Ako being in high school!), so that gives them free reign to do whatever in the game I suppose.

I wonder if the game ever makes that leap.

I was expecting season 2 to introduce the characters in the new band and then at the end they get added to the JP version of the game, but with the time difference that would be weird unless the game also has a time skip when the season ends.

Yeah, I was thinking they might add the new band but after the first episode of the anime I'm like "I guess not!" Maybe Season 3 will lineup with a game timeskip (for Japan).

Now that I think about it, Garupa Pico set the stage (no pun intended) for them to add a bunch of new area items with the changes to Circle...

Reposting this quesiton:
Posters and Flyers at LV 5, all Poppin'Party instruments up to LV 6 and Roselia up to LV 5.

I don't know about instruments but bonus from Posters & Flyers seem big enough to justify upgrading them fully (they don't even have ridiculous upgrade costs, at least compared to LV6 instrument lol).

This challenge event has been ridiculous in terms of drops, not even going for top 100 but I've gotten like 200 miracle crystals. I've maxed out all my area items thanks to all these crystal drops.

Rank 14 for MOON PRIDE, 10 for Dragon Night, 5 for HEROIC ADVENT. Pretty good considering I didn't shoot for top 100 overall for more CP. I think I could've had a good shot at top 3 for HEROIC ADVENT if I had more CP, but I didn't want to play this game more especially during my time off around the start of the new year.

Which covers are in JP but will most likely not make it over? I know the Haruhi songs are late in global, but not sure if there's any more
The Everlasting Guilty Crown
Hanamaru Pippi wa Yoiko Dake (Osomatsu OP)

Not bad really, sucks that you can't get everything but earlier around launch things were looking a bit scary. Bushiroad managed to pull through with most of the songs though.

I wonder if the WW version will get exclusive songs like the Korean version did.

Dang, I knew we lost the Haruhi songs, but Guilty Crown too? That was always a cool song. Bummer that liscencing can be such a pain.

Yeah, initially I was "I started this game since its a licensed Osu! with anime songs, what do you mean they aren't available?", so not having Haruhi sucks since I love the series and the songs are good. Still, we got K-ON, Kenshin, Nanoha and others. The "This Game" (No Game No Life) cover should be coming soon I think. I also hope we get Cruel Angel's Thesis, which was a surprise miss considering we got another Evangelion song already

So, the reason Saya was the cover girl for the event was because she sings major parts of Circling right?

Makes sense because she's the best singer of PoPiPa.

Looking at upcoming events, either I'm not remaining F2P, or I'm skipping an appealing limited gacha. Probably Persona if it's really coming.

lol 21 pulls, two 4* Ako, Powerful Kanon and a dupe 4* Rimi.

Seems like the updated default outfits we got a while back were finally added to the gacha as 2* cards.

2 10 rolls got me a 3* happy Yukina and the new Sayo, so I've got 4 happy Roselia 3*s. Not quite what I was aiming for, but Valentine's looms, so I can live with that.

eh it'll settle down within a few days. These live goals events are naturally gonna be frontloaded with how easy it is to finish the regular goals and some of the EX goals.

As someone who can maintain combo decently but can't hit PERFECT for life of me, the GREAT or less challenge is brutal.
Build yourself a team of 2-star cards that have the perfect lock skill (Great becomes Perfect for X seconds). It doesn't take a lot to get 2-stars to Skill level 5 which keeps the skill active for 8 seconds each time

Also if you're just focusing on challenges don't be afraid to do them in Free Lives

I got the new Sayo (back to being a Sayo account, huh?) and a 4*... pure Chisato with fairy wings. Goddammit game.
Both are a bit redundant on my teams, but at least the Sayo tank costume is really cute.

Guess I'll start saving for at least one 10-pull on the Persona banner.

Thank you for your recommendation. I built a special task force of 2-stars and managed to squeak by Karma with exactly 20 "misses". There are other songs considered to be easier by popular consensus, but the fact that Karma has only 582 notes for 26 Expert is a massive advantage in my book.

Any ideas what might be good for 27 challenges? Probably Redo? Or maybe I start practicing Opera right now...

Not a damn clue, 26 is my limit. Although most folks I know recommend Sugar Song and Bitter Step as your goto for the 28 challenges

I'm grinding out for top 100 so I gave up on the EX challenges awhile back, just playing what I want lol
