Damn, you got me excited for a sec until the "when?"

I would be happy with an anime with Shikata OST already.

Never cause GUST is owned by Koei Tecmo and doesn't care about that IP anymore.

I'm surprised Ciel and Ar Nosurge even exist

You mean Cross Ange?

David Ramirez
David Ramirez

There isn't an IP I'd be more excited to see get exposure for just the setting's art, and music alone.

Koei Tecmo is insane to not get this music more exposure, and make more content for the setting.

At least we're waiting at No surge 3
I'd pass on an anime adaptation of any of the Ar tonelico or nosurge trilogy since a lot of vital information is gonna get lost on the way

Colton Davis

Yeah I'm not holding my breath on that one

Implying the anime medium can handle animating Ar tonelico
Never.

Koei Tecmo a shit. What the hell was GUST Thinking?

We need Ar nosurge 2 first. With Nelo as main heroine.

Why live

Leo Green

give one of the super duper girls a working uterus, but not the others

Beyond a reason "because she's my waifu" I think it was so they could get more administrators in a more natural, "cheaper" way.

Sebastian Bennett

I thought it hilarious when I found out that Kokia's real name is Akiko too, she just spells it backwards for her stage name

Make Sol Cluster great again.

Jacob Diaz

The reason we'll never get an Ar Tonelico anime is because Gust made it in conjunction with Banpresto; however now Koei Tecmo owns Gust and Namco Bandai owns Banpresto. KT and NB aren't exactly friends so they'll never agree on how to split the revenue from any more investments on the franchise.

However, Surge Concerto is fully made and owned by Gust under Koei Tecmo so maybe we'll get some of that instead.

David Perry

Gust made it in conjunction with Banpresto; however now Koei Tecmo owns Gust and Namco Bandai owns Banpresto.

This is a crime against art, and cute girls.

All the singers are gonna die before I see an Ar Tonelico series.

Granted, I have only finished Cass normal end. Do they go back in the true ending? If thats the case they can always focus the story in that specific dimension.

In ions true end nelo and ion leaves you to try traveling to the center of yhe universe to go back to their dimension.
They suceed in the end and its told through two audio messages with ion back home saying how she hopes how one day shlle find you.

come at me

Angel Hill
Angel Hill

Then it's settled: Nelo as main heroine and Ion as support character because she is Earthes avatar waifu (aka YOU)

Also since they returned that means their Fukanshiten is good to go again?

Sebastian Clark

Let's be honest. Kurogane was fucking her. Aoto got sloppy seconds.

Xavier Hughes

Symphogear's songs were nowhere near AT's level.

Your memes are stale.

Charles Cooper

Shurelia that high
Lel

He didn't seem to give a shit about her in the slightest

Can it even be sloppy seconds if she gets a new body hundreds of years later?

Dominic Fisher

Asher Watson

I guess since they got back to their original bodies/dimensions/time before everything hit the fan.

Hunter Allen

opinions other than my own are memes
Shurelia is cute. CUTE. I always go with her or Aurica when I play through AT1, both have their own charm which is why I put them at an equal level.

Adrian Hernandez

For me, it was always Misha and Shurelia.

How'd I do on my Jacqli?

Hudson Clark

Well you don't have to care about someone to fuck them. It baffled everyone why Kurogane gave her a working vagina but if he just wanted to relieve some stress after a hard day of researching it all makes sense.

Christian Roberts
Christian Roberts

METHOD_REPLEKIA and EXEC_with.METHOD_METAFALICA have always been my favorites in the series, personally. I thought Misha was pretty boring as a character for some reason, I got her ending once and it just didn't have anywhere near the same impact as Aurica's did.

Aaron Anderson
Aaron Anderson

Who? Even in 2 she called herself Jakuri, unless you are going by the absolute shit tier localization naming. Also, terrible, just terrible.

Brandon Ortiz

It's not easy making waifus in this game.

Zachary Brooks

How recommended is it to play all these Ar Tonelicos before Nosurges, especially if one isn't too fond of grinding?

Angel Torres
Angel Torres

Because Aurica actually grows as a person because of their relationship whereas Misha is just LYNER-SENPAI~

Wyatt Adams

You ARE in a thread about JRPGs, user. Think before posting next time.

Kayden Davis

Robert Powell

Agreed

Carson Gray
Carson Gray

You don't need to grind in any of the Ar Tonelicos.

Jaxon Miller
Jaxon Miller

I liked Aurica's dives better too, and her story as well. Aurica's story was the entire point of AT1. AT1 was a world where Revyateils are third class citizens, AT2 is a world where they are equal citizens, and AT3 was a world where they were the ruling class, that's the main point of the entire series. Misha was not the standard Revyateil in AT1 and thus her story had little bearing on the actual worldbuilding. It was OK with Shurelia because her position was important to the plot, but Misha didn't have to be written the way she was, she could have fit in with the story and still done her job as the key.

Jayden Richardson
Jayden Richardson

I really like the art and what I saw of the setting in nosurges so I can tolerate a game or 2 worth of grinding, but I'm just not sure if I'll lose much by not playing 2-3 more games worth of grinding.

Camden Wood
Camden Wood

ar nosurge is set as a prequel to the others anyway.

Camden Bailey

That one level where the persona there is only wearing a towel and keeps electrocuting Lyner cause he won't fuck her

Nathan Thompson

Luca in high tier
DIS CARD ED
I can deal with almost any of the other opinions you have but Luca was the biggest cunt in the entire universe and she was a chronic liar to cover it up, fuck that fucking worthless pile of shit.
And why is Frelia so high, she was almost a nonentity in the plot other than her one scene of holding the island together for a little while before she failed that too, and came off as pretty autistic to me on top of that.

Nolan Jenkins
Nolan Jenkins

I liked Cas a whole lot (Especially her bitching that she'll never get any older or have tiddies) but she wasn't as good as Mir.

Adrian Ortiz

Quit riding on memes, user.

Listen to the drama CDs and read the novel that takes place after the three games.

Thomas Wright

There's a fine line between messed up and disturbed to outright awful. The former is moe and needs saving.

Michael Foster

I agree
Luca definitely falls into the latter category.

Xavier Nguyen
Xavier Nguyen

Why would the drama CDs and novels not be counted? They're a part of the main 3 titles? You're actually supposed to get into them since they are supplements and sequels. They're not a standalone piece of work.

Joshua Fisher

titles, no?*

Carter Ross
Carter Ross

"an" anti-Luca guy is what you mean. Because what you said implies that there is only one of us, when in reality the great majority of players of the game hated her or at the very least would never have picked her as their first option when the other two are so far superior to her.

Thomas Nelson

Everyone in that picture is either a Gen 3 or a Teru

That's only for stat building purposes. Betas also don't need to eat, sleep breathe or shit. It's true you know.

David Peterson
David Peterson

Betas also don't need to

I thought they just lived longer, but had the same needs as everyone else.

Jace Jenkins
Jace Jenkins

They're artificial people

Supposedly if they go outside the broadcast range of their tower of origin, they turn into goo. It's why Mir could go to Metafalss because there was a connection to Ar Tonelico

I think that might have been revealed to be a myth, though.

Love those Mir doujins

Luke Murphy

Reminder that they are singing dolls, not you're waifus.

Jack Perry
Jack Perry

great majority
That's not true. While she has a fair amount of detractors, most of the main AT community since arm to isisview to the new board are generally more mature and understanding, thus can appreciate her character. But here between /jp/ and Sup Forums, there are less mature fans, but even so there's one extremely autistic Luca detractor who sticks out and always can never let it go.

Touche.

Samuel Martinez

Well,
you're obviously just regurgitating the usual inane memes.

Keep saying that. Maybe one day you'll believe it.

Does replekia have infinite range or something then? How else could cocona have moved?

Cause she's a third gen and they're born like normal people.

Jace Parker

But there is AT OVA
It sucks balls but still

Eli Wright
Eli Wright

Yeah they went to the trouble to even make songs for it but they were very unremarkable.

Jackson Baker
Jackson Baker

Is it worth watching to listen to them? As even unremarkable Ar Tonelico songs can't be bad, right?

Adrian Roberts
Adrian Roberts

Their Oversight is useless in their home universes.

Adrian Richardson
Adrian Richardson

It's not a myth. It has been confirmed multiple times.

Elijah Williams
Elijah Williams

Exactly. And those Luca haters are missing a very crucial point when they say no one likes here: if that were true, how was it that Luca got the highest number of votes and thus the new song from Shimotsuki in Kurt Hymneth?

Furthermore, she was the only one whose song was completely standalone, as Cloche shared hers with Infel and Jakuri got her song with "Mir" and Shurelia.

Luis Hill
Luis Hill

All the three songs from the OVA are excellent, and are the only redeemable part of the disaster that piece of animation was.

Just download the Hymmnos Concert Mori where they are recorded.
And they are anything but unremarkable, especially given how Tsuchiya himself composed and arranged two of them.

Daniel Garcia
Daniel Garcia

I dunno, my Krut Hymneth download had them. I never watched the OVA

Owen Sanders

Shurelia is cute. CUTE
Shurelia was cute when she was still masked. She just became a boring moeblob after joining the party.

Nathaniel Scott
Nathaniel Scott

I think Aoto was the only one who wouldn't have freaked the fuck out in that situation. Croix ain't particularly good when defending against advances.

Luis Campbell
Luis Campbell

Replekia obviously has a much bigger range by virtue of being a satellite rather than a stationary radio-tower, but that has no bearing on Cocona being able to move. Third gens can go wherever they want to, but lose their ability to use Song Magic outside the range of their tower.

Colton Jackson
Colton Jackson

Actually, Infel Phira (not Replekia, as that's just one of its Mode Shifts) has a very small range compared to any of the Ar tonelico towers. As far as I remember, its effective area only covers Metafalss.

Xavier Stewart
Xavier Stewart

Right which is why she only sang after they established the relay system to get power all the way from Ar Tonelico

Henry Sanders
Henry Sanders

Not really. Sasha had already brought a relay satellite from Metafalss she herself made when they set out to Sol Cluster, and she kept on making others and improving their designs until the time AT3 took place.

Also, Cocona has never taken power from Ar tonelico because she's an IPD, so Sol Marta and the First Tower have nothing to do with her. The power she used whenever she sang all came from Infel Phira, relayed through Sasha's satellites.

Brandon Torres

Am 28 now
Got into anime and manga since I was a little kid
My whole life's interests resolves around mediums that are anime/manga--style due to my love of them, meaning LNs, VNs, and RPG games included
Despite that, my most loved franchises that I place at the top are either from VNs LNs, or RPG games
Am I the only one? VNs and RPG games especially. They're the highest form of works that combines art, music, writing, and voice actors.

Jose James
Jose James

Oh, thought I saw something coming from the first tower in the cutscene but I guess I was mis-remembering after watching it again

I think I made a false connection since the second tower used to rely on power from the first.

It's tiny portions of animated cutscenes like this that only feed my hunger for more.

It's beautiful, magnificent, and opens me to fantastic realms of artistic design.

Though the songs aren't really adaptable to anything else, as their lyrics and feelings are extremely specific to the points they're sung in-game or in-CD.
