Anime series directed by Shoji Kawamori, when?
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?
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
Yeah I'm not holding my breath on that one
Implying the anime medium can handle animating Ar tonelico
Koei Tecmo a shit. What the hell was GUST Thinking?
We need Ar nosurge 2 first. With Nelo as main heroine.
Nelo went back to her home planet
I just want pretty animated music videos man.
Why haven't you abandoned your homeworld for Shurelia yet?
But she didn't and neither did Ion. They all stay in the new planet created by COSAL.

Kokia and Akiko Shikata will never do a duet
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.
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
Did someone ever translate the epilogue messages from ion?
every reyvateil is like a walking star trek teleporter/replicator/photon torpedo factory near the towers.
This is a wondrous and dangerous world.
Make Sol Cluster great again.
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.
These two do things to my very heart and soul.
How'd they get the go ahead to go back to Ar Ciel in Ar Nosurge and use Shurelia?
Yeah Shikata's good at what she does
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.
THANKS FOR REMINDING ME
HOW DID SHE DIE OF LUNG CANCER AT 44?!
IT'S NOT LIKE SHE SINGS LIKE A 12 PACK A DAY SMOKER
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.
Ar Tonelico music videos
I want it, so bad. Espically since every songs seem to tell a story or an idea.
cringed a bit
main 3 titles, (god tier) Mir > Shurelia = Aurica > Filament > (top tier) Cocona2 > Cloche > Soma >Tyria > (mid tier) Yurisica > Saki/Sarapatra/Sakia > Cocona3 > Misha > Finnel >>>>> shit >>>> absolute shit >>>>> irredeemable shit >>>>>> Luca
come at me
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?
Let's be honest. Kurogane was fucking her. Aoto got sloppy seconds.
Symphogear's songs were nowhere near AT's level.
Your memes are stale.
Shurelia that high
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?
Mir is the
I guess since they got back to their original bodies/dimensions/time before everything hit the fan.
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.
For me, it was always Misha and Shurelia.
dat chronicle key man...
How'd I do on my Jacqli?
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.
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.
Who? Even in 2 she called herself Jakuri, unless you are going by the absolute shit tier localization naming. Also, terrible, just terrible.
It's not easy making waifus in this game.
How recommended is it to play all these Ar Tonelicos before Nosurges, especially if one isn't too fond of grinding?
Because Aurica actually grows as a person because of their relationship whereas Misha is just LYNER-SENPAI~
You ARE in a thread about JRPGs, user. Think before posting next time.
Just wait for Warriors Orochi 4
You don't need to grind in any of the Ar Tonelicos.
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.
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.
ar nosurge is set as a prequel to the others anyway.
That one level where the persona there is only wearing a towel and keeps electrocuting Lyner cause he won't fuck her
I still can't believe people actually made this. I wonder if it taste good.

To be fair, Lyner was a pretty beta MC compared to the other two.
While it's a common cooking technique to add sweet and savory together...
This is by no means a good idea.
I was wondering when this meme would show up
Don't stop, though. She was a bitch
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.
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.
hating Luca to an asinine degree
doesn't get the appeal of a dorodere
Quit riding on memes, user.
Listen to the drama CDs and read the novel that takes place after the three games.
doesn't get the appeal of someone who's secretly awful
Frelia is a dogfucker
having to do all that extra stuff just to get the relevance of a character
did you happen to miss the part where I said "main 3 games only"? That would obviously exclude any outside content building up the characters.
Why is she in the washing machine?
There's a fine line between messed up and disturbed to outright awful. The former is moe and needs saving.
Luca definitely falls into the latter category.
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.
Betas don't need to bathe. They do however need to be thrown in the washing machine every few months.
Betas don't need to bathe.
It's not an official At/Gust thread without anti-Luca guy around to christen it.
Third quote was meant for
"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.
Everyone in that picture is either a Gen 3 or a Teru
We still need the Luca autist copypasta to it be official.
That's only for stat building purposes. Betas also don't need to eat, sleep breathe or shit. It's true you know.
Betas also don't need to
I thought they just lived longer, but had the same needs as everyone else.
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
Reminder that they are singing dolls, not you're waifus.
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.
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?
How else could cocona have moved?
Cause she's a third gen and they're born like normal people.
He thinks it's all one person
I see multiple (You)s in your post but unfortunately for your argument they are not all me.
Sure is anime and manga in here.
I believe you, you sound like a sane and trustworthy person.
Thanks for 2 (you)
Fuck off newfag. Occasional AT threads have been a tradition since the split.
But there is AT OVA
It sucks balls but still
Yeah they went to the trouble to even make songs for it but they were very unremarkable.
Is it worth watching to listen to them? As even unremarkable Ar Tonelico songs can't be bad, right?
Their Oversight is useless in their home universes.
It's not a myth. It has been confirmed multiple times.
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.
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.
I dunno, my Krut Hymneth download had them. I never watched the OVA
Shurelia is cute. CUTE
Shurelia was cute when she was still masked. She just became a boring moeblob after joining the party.
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.
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.
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.
Right which is why she only sang after they established the relay system to get power all the way from Ar Tonelico
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.
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.
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.
Cool blog, subscribed!
Anyone have any more Ar wallpapers?
How fucking glorious it was.
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.
giant glowing woman uses a giant tower as a gun for planetary heart surgery
I never see Western shit get this awesome.
I laughed my ass off when I realized the third tower was just a huge gun
Those days when I was torn between Mir, Cocona and Finnel. But then I realized why settle for one when I can harem them all?
It's amazing how many Transhuman themes I see in Ar Tonelico is adaptable to other properties.
I want to retake Earth in Eclipse Phase while METHOD_HYMMELI is sung by a seed AI waifu.
And let's not mention the people in /v/. These really take the prize to immaturity and idiocy.
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.
I made one
It's even personalized for you
I probably fucked up Ar Ciela part
Hymmnos one too probably
But intention is what matters!
