    He looks like such a pansy. Already don’t like him.

    • MrRobbyM

      Well you must be happy that he’s mortally wounded early in the game.

      • Bhunivelze

        He probably still gets more pussy than you

        • MrRobbyM

          He probably does. Seeing as I don’t even like “pussy”.

          • Bhunivelze

            Forgive me, I mean to reply to the first poster. XD I’m new to this stuff. But seriously, what in the world makes that guy a pansy? Because he got injured? ugh

          • MrRobbyM

            S’okay. In his defense, he does look like he’d be quite weak but that’s not reason to dislike him ._.

  • LETS PRAY FOR LOCALIZATION

    Can’t wait for this game, deffinetly importing this.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    THis is like  week old news :trollface:

    • Crimson_Cloud

       Indeed.

      Honestly, I had enough of info on paper, I want to see gameplay vids and trailers for this game.

  • puchinri

    When I was looking at this info and some screens a couple of days ago, it kind of got me to thinking. What if the prince’s real form is the baby dragon, and his race of people are dragons that can take the form of humans, and the marriage between him and Toki is to bring humans and dragons together or something?

    I’m starting to think that his true form is the dragon. But then again, that’s probably low on the list of likely things. It would be interesting though~.

    • Guest

      If you look at this screenshot, you can see the one with pigtails, Enda, is holding a small, blue dragon.

      http://www.siliconera.com/postgallery/?p_gal=203456|1 

      Not saying what you are saying is wrong, cause you could be right and he’s another blue dragon.

      Edit: Go to the next image as it doesn’t go to the one I’m talking about. XD

      • puchinri

        Ah, okay. Haha. I saw a screen with them chatting before the wedding and the dragon was there and seemed to be in the convo to in some way or another, so I wondered.

        That makes things more interesting. I wonder if he is just another, if there’s a connection between them or the prince just gets screwed over and has to be in the dragon’s body (he’s prince Lars!).

        (It went to the right image~. >u<)

        • Guest

          I thought about that as well, that he maybe inside the dragon’s body.  Hm…  It does indeed make things more interesting.

          (It did?  Not when I clicked it. XD LOL)

          • puchinri

            Huh~. I wonder if that is more of a possibility then? I wonder how this is going to go. x’D

            (Lol, I have no clue what is going on with it then. Toki is walking by and Enda is holding him and besides the others, right? So weird. x’DDD)

          • Guest

            Maybe.  Or it could fit with your original ideas and Enda just got attached to one of the dragons there.  Or, very unlikely, but Enda could be from there herself.  Hm…

            (LOL  I get the picture of Toki and the dragon being attacked.  So weird is right. XD)

          • puchinri

            Ah, that’s a more interesting idea too. Actually, Enda’s hair color is a little similar to the MC’s as well, and he has blue hair and eyes too. That really makes me wonder. 
            (As a huge extrapolation, they could be like Yomu Konpaku and have both forms exist physically and simultaneously?)

            It just gets more and more curious. They really built up a good mystery. x’D

            (And now it’s going straight to that one for me too, lol.)

          • Guest

            Yeah, they do.  Now that you mention it, I see the similarity.
            (That could be it!  It’s starting to seem like that anyhow.)

            They really have.  And the more you look into it, the more of a mystery it gets. XD

            (So very weird. LOL)

    • Ladius

      You know what? Your thesis clicks so well with the material and infos we have so far I think you could be very well on to something :P

      • puchinri

        Thanks~. Since the dragon has been there from the start, it seemed like it was more relevant than just “he changes into it,” and the screens we’ve seen lately add a new, interesting element to everything.

        It’d be pretty intriguing if he is the dragon or was always tied to it already or something. I think I’ll be interested in whatever route they go with though.

    • http://vanilladice.deviantart.com/ Dice

      It’d be a good touch because he’s pretty damn uninteresting so far.

      • puchinri

        Hah, agreed.

    • Göran Isacson

      Man with every single newspost about this game I keep seeing so much interesting speculation as to what the relation between the prince and the dragon might be, that I’m pretty sure I’m going to be dissapointed when the game actually drops because there’s no way truth could be cooler than the theories you’re spinning.

      • puchinri

        Yeahh. Hehe. I don’t think the story will be anywhere near as exciting as I hope, but Imageepoch does sometimes pull silly stuff (even alongside their blatant cliches), so I’m going to hold out a little hope. Thanks, by the way!

  • Chiupon

    Wow, a feminist Japanese game?
    This bitch is protecting her man. LOL

    • Chiupon

      it’s getting primal up in hereee.

    • puchinri

      Lawl, such a change right? Not only do you play as the female character, but she’s the one doing all the fighting and protecting. x’D
      Yes, please!

  • MrRobbyM

    Princess Toki SMASH!

  • Godmars

    Okay, this girl if not the game has fallen off my radar.

    I mean, I don’t want to have to walk into a bar with her and nearly get beaten to death before her psycho-side jumps in and saves my ass.

    Then have to deal with the crazy half while wounded on top of it – unless the sex is that good of course… 

    Just Saiyan… ;3

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Yandere Towa should be the main one. Way more interesting than Toki.

    • puchinri

      She seems more “don’t eff with my friends (or her wedding or the prince)” badass than yandere. Thank goodness.

  • icecoffemix

    The animation art looks cruder each time I saw them.

    SHAFT why u not animate this?

    • puchinri

      Admittedly, I can’t say I have much faith in SHAFT. They do fancy and flashy well, but they’re not great to me. 

      Also, it shouldn’t look cruder each time, since these are from the same group of scenes we’ve been shown before. The quality should be the same.

      • icecoffemix

        So how do you know I’ve seen those group before? :p

        And while admittedly their TV animation can sometimes be wacky (lol slideshow episode) due to the impossible schedule they did to themselves, I don’t think any other studio could adapt original artist art as good as they did.

        Just compare Haganai done by AIC and Denpa Onna by SHAFT, both original artist is Buriki.

        And for this artist, Vofan, they already proved themselves with Monogatari series adaptation.

        • puchinri

          Well, it’s the same batch from the first announcement, and one other. I wouldn’t know for sure if you have, but if you’ve seen screens before, I’d suppose you have. ^u^;

          I think some of the more niche companies can. I like how extravagant SHAFT gets, but I think they have a forte.

          I feel like Katanagatari’s style is more similar to Vofan’s, and that was handled by a different studio entirely.

          • icecoffemix

            I swear I’ve only just saw the top two art here on this article though.

            You got me there, White Fox is another studio I wouldn’t mind for adapting a series. They have quite good chameleon-ing art ability, even nailed it well on Huke’s unique art on Steins;Gate.

            Regarding Katanagatari, I’d rather they adopt realistic look than the semi-Powerpuff-Girl art Katanagatari did.

          • puchinri

            The second is new for sure, though I don’t remember if the top one is or not. Either way, the animation has remained the same essentially throughout those scenes, so it shouldn’t look worse than any of the others we’ve seen before.

            Indeed. I think they handle “artsy” (and distinct) quite well.

            I don’t know if I’d call Katanagatari’s art style semi-Powerpuff Girls. It’s simplified yes, but also very much so a style that focuses on color, patterns and smoothness without emphasizing lines. That particular style wouldn’t suit this animation per se, but in general, the artist’s overall style is pretty similar to Vofan’s (focus on no or less lines, color and gradation used very specifically and beautifully). It’s why I think White Fox would be a better option than SHAFT, and probably the bets option in general. They could probably integrate it well with the more common and/or cel-shaded anime styles.

          • puchinri

            When it does focus on lines, they are very hard (and ukiyo-e, which helps bring it all out), but its strengths and parts that distinguish it are very similar to the distinct parts of VOFAN’s art. (The way color and pattern or gradation is used is essential and in a way, the main focus.)

            I like how “clean” SHAFT’s art for it is, but I don’t prefer it. But VOFAN has a style that I quite favor (in general, and specifically his), so perhaps that’s just bias for me.

          • icecoffemix

            Funny I think Katanagatari art focus more on hard line and color, and simple but unique face.

            And you know what? I actually think Vofan’s monogatari character actually look better on the anime than his art, SHAFT nailed it pretty damn good imo. :p

    • http://vanilladice.deviantart.com/ Dice

      I kind of agree, but I think my issue is more the “style” of art than the animation itself that’s really putting me off… and without gameplay, really all we have to go on.

      • icecoffemix

        Was talking about that, how the heck could I know the animation from the two still frame otherwise? :p

    Anyone have the release date for this?  Because I’ve been bugging AmiAmi to cough up and list the game for the past few months.

  • Ladius

    This game seems to be really interesting, but I would like to see a gameplay video before starting the hype engine considering the way TtT is animated.

  • jeremy_germ

    Yandere mode?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      F!Shiki mode I’d say.

  • Barrit

    Now that’s a Ride or Die chick

  • http://twitter.com/salarta salarta

    Old news, but still looking forward to this and hope it comes stateside. Everything about it intrigues me.

    But I’m also annoyed that the team refuses to show any actual in-game footage. I’ve taken to the expectation that the gameplay must suck ass if the team is this scared of showing anything more than a clip so short it literally passes in the blank of an eye.

  • Stolichnaya

    the game looks great.

    now then…how about they show us some gameplay for a change? :/

  • AzureNova

    Time And Eternity and Toki just went from amazing to epicly amazing!

    For the love of all that is good and holy please let this get localized! >_<

    Oh cool we get to save prince charming. Somehow it is the first time Ive seen him in the image batched.

  • パンダ

    her power level is over 9000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Göran Isacson

    Ha ha ha OH MAN that art. Towa, honey, what is your spine even DOING? Why are you thrusting your ass at the viewer while turning your feet in different directions AND twisting your torso so that you’re looking right at us? Is that another one of Towas powers? She’s a contortionist?

    • puchinri

      You noticed too? x’D

      When I scrolled past it, my boyfriend pointed and went,”she has the broken spine syndrome!” I tried to gloss over it when I first saw, but I couldn’t help but stare and just shook my head. The art is so pretty, but it just looks incredibly silly in the end with poses like that.

      • Göran Isacson

        Ooh yes, I didn’t see it at first because I was just checkign out the comments/reactions, but then I scrolled up and actually LOOKED at the images, and… well, damn. That sure is art that could end up on the Escher-Girls tumblr. Check it out for more examples of spinebreakingly bad art.

        • puchinri

          Hah! I will not be surprised to see it there. Actually, I’m going to be keeping an eye out for it now. x’D

    • Kai2591

       you have uber observational powers ;)

      • Göran Isacson

        Ha ha, it’s not so much they’re “uber” as they’re trained. Look up the tumblr I mention in puchin-ris reply, escher-girls. It’s a site that posts a lot of art of female characters twisted and contorted in ways no spine can actually bend in, just so that the girls can “pose sexy”. It mostly has a lot of american comic-book art where the problem is wide-spread, but there’s one’s fair share of spinebreaking manga too.

        • Kai2591

          lol so its a wide-spread problem eh?
          It really bothers you once you notice it :)

  • http://twitter.com/Jun212011 Tonttu

     Look very nice =)

  • E15

    Would it be strange if I said Towa turns me on?

    • Darkrise

      Nope, perfectly natural. =)

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    I know some people have some reservations about the gameplay, but I was just thinking if this is a turn-based RPG, they could, conceivably, do fully animated cutscenes controlled by a menu. It would technically play the exact same way as the, say, pre-VII FF games, but instead of characters standing on their respective sides and numbers appearing to show when damage is done, they could have fully animated cutscenes of whatever the command you just entered and its consequences are. I don’t think there’s much reason to be Asura’s Wrath afraid of this one.

  • Darkrise

    She looks so much better than Toki, I love it when they have strong female characters in jrpg’s. 

  • Tom_Phoenix

    People keep making the Super Saiyan reference, but personally, as I mentioned in a related article, the whole transformation concept instantly reminded me of Launch (they even say that the Toki/Towa transformation involves pepper and Launch transforms by sneezing; also, possibly NSFW):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqvGPn2ThDo

    Anyway, with each new article, I become more convinced that this “protagonist” isn’t going to be much of a protagonist. The only thing we’ve seen him do so far is get mortally wounded and (assuming he really is the blue dragon) get strung along by women…literally.

    • puchinri

      Yeah, Super Saiyan does have a color change, but it also involves your hair doing ridiculous things and getting spikier than usual. This isn’t super saiyan. Launch is a very apt comparison though~!

      I feel the same. Actually, I think “main character/protagonist” is basically just a placeholder title/name of sorts. I think Toki is the main character, but maybe you’re there beside her as a player still (similar to Beyond the Labyrinth).

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

    Shi……Shinobu…..with Ryougi Shiki “problems”!?

    Well good to  know she didn’t ditch her Prince Charming….. This is getting weird….

  • Guest

    Whoa! Super Saiyan mode + Yandere mode + a knife = someone you REALLY don’t want to piss off!

    Loving her more and more. X3

  • boundries_san

    Hoo so we have a kind princess+a powerful(Yandere???) princess too. Man that prince should be careful for the marriage here lol.

    If he is caught having affair, he can be sure dead awaits him.^^

    Hoho. The more I read about this title the more interested I get in it. Need to get this if it ever reaches outside of Japan.

  • http://twitter.com/frokenok3 frokenok3

    I learned about this game yesterday and i read all the info so far! I’m getting this for sure even if they don’t localize it!

  • l777l

    This is in the top region of my list of games I would like to see localized. That kind of hand-drawn art and 2D touch are rarely seen these days, and Toki/Towa is starting to seem like an interesting character, too.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Joachim-Varne/1640586412 Joachim Varne

    NISA, license this immediately! This looks really great and the story sounds cute. I’ll problary just make them all Tsundere, but that’s the fun with it!
