So, what's everybody favorite mains?

Edit: A pagetopper! It seems Amaterasu has blessed me today.

I have no idea if I'm right if Amaterasu can do that.

Been feeling a bit nostalgic while listening to some blazblue tracks, ao Im curious: what were some of the best moments of the series for you? Whether it be the gags, the fights, the lore drops, etc.

Highlights for me include Terumi's Takamagahara hack, The gang vs Take Mikazuchi, Every time terumi gets caught iff gaurd, and of course Kokonoe in the spectacles of eros gag.

The reveal at the end of CS was awesome.

Sadly I feel the whole izanami business made it less impactful in retrospect but the whole ragna/saya dynamic got turned on its head there.

Ragna vs. Nine was actually pretty good too in hindsight

I think CS was the high point of the series, imo. I cant remember a lot of complaints about the writing there, and it was a bit before blazblue decided to make untranslated side works all canon a la phase shift. But stuff like tsubaki vs noel, Hazama being hazama, litchis start of darkness, etc.

I see that opinion a lot, and while I understand it, I don't completely agree either.

I feel there's a bit of bizarre nostalgia bias going one with that take, I feel. CT-CS is where most entered the series so of course that era would be looked upon more fondly because things were fresh and new back then. The Light Novels did overcomplicate things a bit yeah, but that's always an unfortunate side effect of multimedia projects, especially since fitting all that lore into a game isn't financially feasible.

Well the other later entries had higher highs, they also brought in lower lows too. And then you have stuff like Naoto, Azrael, Amane, Mai tossed into the last few games with little explanation in game. Celica gets a pass for at least putting phase shift 1 in game but i think those factors ahould be taken into account.

Also CS had Help Me, Professor Kokonoe! You cant just understate that.

That's true, Help Me Prof. Kokonoe was indeed great.

[up][up] Some of those can be explained by gameplay trumping story, i.e. they were created to make more options for players.

I will say some of the multimedia stuff don't really add to the story. The phase shift novels were at least good for world-building, but Remix Heart, and those other other visual novels whose name I'm blanking on feel more like cash-grabs then anything that adds to the story. The latter overcomplicates it if anything. Same with Bloodedge Experience. Those novels ended IIRC, and barely got an ending, if at all, in CF.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet Unless I grew it. In that case, throw it in the trash.

Remix Heart, if nothing else, expanded on the Academy background of the NOL characters.

Though I question why you couldn't just make one of them the main characters instead of creating a new one wholesale...

That said; the only novels that are kind of required reading are Phase Shift since it takes place in the same timeline and explains the past events of the Six Heroes and their current situation.

Es and Naoto don't really need to have their original stories played to understand their context in the main series.

So trying to remember:

What was Pod Noel (aka the one inside the Master Unit) actually able to do beyond just resetting things when they didn't go her way?

It sounds like despite all that power, she didn't actually have much control over anything, which kinda makes the assertion that she's responsible for all the bad things of the world (which is what Nine assumes) unfair.

[up] Susanoo is the other reason bad things happened. But Amaterasu is THE God in this verse, and Susanoo conveniently separates his body and soul so that he's hardly known to people.

To the intellectuals, ignorants are slaves.

One thing I didn't pick up on with Hakumen until I knew more about Kamen Rider is that he follows the trend of Riders gaining their powers from the enemy in some form. In Hakumen's case, his body is from Susanoo himself.
