    Yeah I'm still waiting as well. Maybe I'll get lucky and pull Barbara and Julie to seal the decision. You're on my list. Can always ask me to put it up when you need it. :D

    Mine is always up slot #1 if you want to add me, but it's the D/D, not the D/R. Now with the >80% buff he is going to be even sweeter

    Yeah the trade requirements are pretty insane most normal players have like 1 or two seven star max.
    Would have been more realistic if you could trade like 6 or even 8 6 star gfe lol

    Well I'd say this is overall not so great. The buffs to Ney and Cotton are really cool, but only inasmuch as if they already earned a slot on the team then they'd be even better at it. Same thing with the Ideals, if you werent using them before then you arent going to use them now. Fio (and probably Clea) win big by getting an easy answer to VDP or free Ribbon resist.

    Lajoa seems to be the one getting a game changing buff with both evos. With the lower shield HP threshold and Kuroyuri existing the first evo is very viable if expensive. With Kuro, and Leito that 6 star to fix RCV and the huge boost to his multiplier the 2nd evo is really doable as well.

    Valeria seems entirely niche, so knock yourselves out, R/L has a HUUUUUUUGE sub pool that her Rainbow activation requirements just totally waste her leadership potential making her merely a Whaler's Whaledor. Rocher (either evo) seem like a great leader pairing for Fio for damage rush dungeons, kind of like Vraska or Brachys but better.

    Suou seems like a 7-star neo-Scheat. Worth whaling for when you dont know better, but after $100 you'll be asking yourself is even more overkill damage worth not having FUA or VDP or any skills up for the first 4 turns or an Absorb Void etc etc

    Definitely going to be trying to get tape res on my Fio. Fuck tape.

    I want Valeria quite a bit. Great lead when combined with my Ideal or Diablos. That 21x multiplier and 3x rcv is killer for either matched lead. Team HP+ wont hurt either. AS seems weak, but rcv is a help, low CD, wish it had been a bit different.

    Fire/Light attributes when paired with Ideal makes team tailoring easy, Fujin or Tardis round out color requirements and then 2x sub slots to tailor for dungeon specifics.

    Rocher with 16x, shield, FUA in a single lead is pretty sweat. Then an CD atr absorb void and Orb Change, damn.

    Suou, VDP for fire and water, OC, +1 combo, Shield and 7.5x to go with Jhoira 9x seems a fun team with possibilities. Not much power in Fire and Water from my deck.

    So this new awoken skill gives them a sound clip that plays when you match orbs or something, but it has no functional effect on the game?

    Exactly. Fortunately they’ve been merging regular awakenings into super awakes to make it happen with much loss. Though we might suffer for it on future monsters.

    I figure it's probably so GH could pick and choose which monsters to give it to.

    Animated didn't need an awakening slot either to me this just looks like some really lazy coding
    There is no reason why something that has zero impact on gameplay should mess with balancing.

    Not like they didn't already do similar with the taiko drum stuff. I agree, seems like a waste. First implementation is combining other awakenings to make space, which is acceptable, but there's no doubt later on it'll just end up wasting awakening slots... At least in our consumer-side point of view.

    The voice awakening is huuuge in JP since most player base also watching anime.

    Very valid point. I had forgotten about the animation, somehow.

    JP are pretty nutso about who VAs what in general... It sounds like hyperbole, but... for example, the love live event in GBF came through, a lot of the LL fans were absolutely insane. And i don't mean in a good way.

    It was like being on the outside of one of any number of fandoms that drive people away form even attempting to experience said game/show/whatever.

    Basically that. Idols.

    I compiled a blog post about the voice actors for those curious... Some of them voiced anime or game series you all may recognize.
