    yup, your typical animu opening right there

      Second flash is on a random rack — if you didn’t already know this was a Taka-san Shining game, you do now.

        annnndd because you said something prepare for a long convo of people crying over it

        • M’iau M’iaut

          Oh I know. We’ve seen one, one that’s on my shelf and will forever get a smile and a nod. A series in which every hero, heroine and more than one minor being have washed up on a beach with amnesia. Such are the reasons we can smile when playing our games. (Raises a glass) Cheers and thanks for being here Luna!

    What I want to know right now is why Maxima/Sakuya/Viola/whatever has many variations of herself in the recent games, while dudes like Xero, Touma and Kiriya only stick in one continuity (well, characters from Tears/Wind appear in Blade, but it’s kind of a fanservice game, so I don’t think it really counts).

    On topic about the OP, I’m quite disappointed by the lack of nekomimi pirate girls. And apparently, Freed has a different sword. I wonder if it is related to the plot?

      I hate Xero and Kiriya. Touma was the best main character for me, sadly he just appeared in one game and his anime version was better. Shining Blade is the secuel of Tears/Wind not just a “fanservice” it really counts. Kiriya is in it too, he is just wearing the black knight armor so you have one variation of him already.

      I wonder if you can have an ending with this new Sakuya. I like her purple dress and scythe better.

      I thought she was like the guardian of the realm or something. She appears in every game post-Wind, and can change costumes.

  • zackner

    Wooow I love this type of opening with this anime style seriously I love it

  • Tianyu Wei

    I thought Ark would of been a VITA game… there is hope to then ext Shining being on VITA…

  • Raltrios

    I still think the title sounds too much like Luminous Arc… -__-;

  • Pope The Rev XXVIII

    Boycott this game for the thousands of You Tube videos that got taken down because of it.

  • Why does Panis have two white wings in this video, but ONE black wing in the game? Pretty inconsistent.

    • XiaomuArisu

      Maybe its important for the story.
