Is Rachel gay?
Is Rachel gay?
In your dreams, sure.
She only loves tea
All Vampires are bisexual
It's wrong to be gay.
No, but you sure are.
She wants Ragna dick, as confirmed in the Eros ending
Me on the roight
Every BB girl is gay.
I want to rape Rachel
Fuck off Terumi
Lies. Mai is clearly straight for example.
Pretty much the best way to look at it.
You live a thousand years and you get a bit bored of the same old every day, night, you know what I mean.
I want a pair of vampires to dominate me!
And one is a guy!
When is the new manga coming out
Why is tail play so moe?
I don't know why, but despite the fact that Rachel is by far my favorite BB, I love seeing her get violently raped. It seems many artists feel the same.
Real answer? Probably not. Sexual pics like OP are just for fanservice. Because more lewdly dressed girls in sexual situations is sexier, right?
Otherwise, using pics like OP as "proof" for anything is pretty much the same as you thinking a girl is into you just because she looked into your eyes or touched your shoulder a few times. It's just sad. Especially here when you try to justify your own sexual proclivities.
9th of June.
Come on user, out of all waifus you pick the one unplayable character?
Why does Mai dress like a slut now?
Terumi did nothing wrong.
Relius did nothing wrong.
The NOL did nothing wrong.
They probably thought it'd actually make her interesting.
Hopefully she'll be playable soon.
Those are normal clothes by Blazblue's standards.
To be fair, they wouldn't consistently make her act like a molester if they didn't have something in mind. Besides, she's old enough to be bored with regular sex, unless purityfag wish fulfilment is at full blast.
Mai is already interesting. Her grimoire grants her a pretty unique power that has a lot of applications outside of combat and she has her own fighting style. Plus, thanks to the fact that she has her own manga, her backstory and character have been fleshed out quite well, showing that she has a likeable personality but also inner doubts and personal issues as well as goals she strives for.
Those are normal clothes by Blazblue's standards.
Only other outfit as bad as that is Makoto, who works with it as a playful flirt. The other outfits aren't NEARLY as bad as Mai's.
dress like a slut
We have to be honest with ourselves; that level of dress in the Blazblue universe is probably like casual summer wear for early-20-somethings.
I'd say that Mu's outfit is much more revealing.
But even if you ignore robutts, Litchi is a doctor and nobody bats an eye when she goes around wearing this.
Why is she wielding the Spear of Longinus? I thought that was Rei's shtick in promotional material.
Stop trying to change the subject to your boring avatar, trip. It's annoying.
if you're wearing the bunny suit you gotta at least have big tits.
Japan can't into bunnies.
Its shape is nothing like the spear from Evangelion.
So if there is a new manga will it be posted here, /v/ or /blaz/?
To be fair to Litchi, she only wears thst when fighting. Her pre-fight outfit probably wouldn't work well in actual combat.
Here and /blaz/ probably.
You kidding? Small tit bunnysuits are great, the expectation-breaking and completely unhideable flatness are top of the appeal.
And we don't know if Mai wears that outfit all the time or only when fighting either. In the image we have she appears to be fighting.
Well, Longnius CAN shapeshift. Also we don't know what the actual head of Mai's spear looks like.
hey Sup Forums guess what
BLAZBLUE HAS A GREAT
You are in effect saying that it looks like Longinus if Longinus changed its shape to something entirely different. The haft of Mai's spear isn't a double helix and from what we can see of its end it doesn't look like it has two prongs either.
Except for Celica, but Celica is an insufferable character regardless.
Didn't Mori make a image of her from the times of the games that was about the same? Might wear it all the time then.
I don't see why you wouldn't want your waifu to have Longnius, she'd be able to one-shot everything with it, even Death.
Mori had made an early version of that outfit back when Remix Heart ended. You can see that it looks somewhat different and they hadn't yet decided to replace Mai's sword and dagger with a spear. We know nothing about the context in which Mai might have worn that outfit in that image though and it's not the finished version either.
Implying that they copied Eva just because Mai has a red spear whose shape is nothing like that of Eva is a pretty far-fetched claim.
The prototype outfit is better than the final version
Mori is now a mistake
Implying that they copied Eva just because Mai has a red spear whose shape is nothing like that of Eva is a pretty far-fetched claim.
I was joking and didn't even mean that at that point, I was saying iF she was given the Lance of Longinus, she'd then be the highest tier of the lore.
Until the MP EVAs come with thier own lances and brutalize Mai
You forgot to turn off the oven you nitwit
Now the kitchen is on fire again
Their overall design is pretty similar. They're both backless outfits (this is Mori's fetish) with no bra, accompanied by gloves and Mai's standard ribbon. I like the fact that they removed the bandage from Mai's arm as it served no purpose. Also I prefer her outfit without that collar, and her new gloves look better in my opinion. That huge zipper Mori added looks rather weird admittedly. We can't judge the bottom half of her outfit since it's not visible in the old image.
but there's very little art of her being raped?
That collar and giant thing on it makes me wonder. I doubt it's a zipper, doesn't look like it would have that function with the outfit. Could the collar and 'zipper' be actually like a type of seal?
Could it be a nametag and remants of a possible time she was captured and made into a slave? Could the new outfit just be her 'Slave Leia'ing it?
There's a lot of it on pixiv. Including entire CG sets about her being imprisoned and raped by Terumi and his men. Nothing translated though afaik.
I think you're overanalyzing it. I'm guessing that Mori simply likes giant zipper heads since a number of characters have them on their outfits.
Look at the hunk of metal Carl has to carry around.
Fair enough. I wonder if Mori would have liked Suguri.
What would it feel like being in Noel's position here?
Do not call me by that name.
Hey Saya, how ya doing? You seem lively today.
Best vampire loli in any game.
She is best BB.
Too bad her familliars are shit
Frog is best animal.
Even her Japanese voice is really irritating.
Only if Ragna turns into a girl.
George XIII is back from the dead.
Well he's the only one that doesn't blabber on.
What's wrong with Nago and Gii?
We all know who the true cutie of BlazBlue really is.
What's objectively the best armpit in blazblue?
there is almost no porn of her
Strange, there's almost none of it on danbooru or exhentai...
Litchi quite simply isn't popular. The following data is over 2 months old, but it's still informative:
Percentage of images of a character on Pixiv that are porn:
Name: R-18/Total Images = Percentage
Bullet: 88/404 = 21.8%
Makoto: 334/1584 = 21.1%
Noel: 360/1794 = 20.0%
Rachel: 240/1236 = 19.4%
Nine: 6/38 = 15.8%
Platinum: 243/1764 = 13.8%
Linhua: 2/15 = 13.3%
Litchi: 23/214 = 10.7%
Celica: 28/280 = 10.0%
Mai: 8/84 = 9.5%
Nu: 84/972 = 8.6%
Kokonoe: 69/893 = 7.7%
Taokaka: 154/2028 = 7.6%
Izayoi: 21/288 = 7.3%
Izanami: 3/43 = 7.0%
Mu: 32/492 = 6.5%
Lambda: 37/578 = 6.4%
Tsubaki: 46/736 = 6.3%
Kajun: 1/18 = 5.6%
Trinity: 6/136 = 4.4%
Torakaka: 0/7 = 0.0%
Yes, I am.
chinese dress + lingerie
Why do the elevens have such shit taste.
Because Litchi is a fucking dumb idiot and if you like her you should fix your shit taste
her intelligence levels dont matter
They kind of do, she's not very likeable.
it doesnt matter whether she is intelligent or not when you are raping her
only two pages of results for rachel alucard
almost all of which is untranslated
Is that Lilith?
And none of it involve Ragna
Fuck this gay earth
Litchi is intelligent. But beneath her veneer of kindness she's also extremely selfish, self-centered and obsessed with Arakune to an insane degree. This sums her up pretty well:
Ragna: "Lady, he's totally gone. Just put him out of his misery already."
Litchi: "But I can save him!!"
Kokonoe: "Forget it. He brought this on himself. Even I can't do anything about his condition."
Litchi: "But I can save him!!"
Arakune: "Litchi, p se k ll me..."
Litchi: "But I can save you!!"
Relius: "Will you help me destroy the world and become god?"
Litchi: "If you can save him then yes!!"
Rachel: "Kokonoe is literally killing herself trying to save him just because she cares about you so much."
Litchi: "This makes me sad! But I'll still keep trying to save him because I don't care who gets fucked as long as I get what I want!!"
not wanting Ragna
what are you? Gay?
not wanting a miracle of the universe
implying anything but his pedoedge is a miracle
What's up with these fucking /u/ invasions?
What's up with these fucking /b/ invasions?
being this much PLATINUM MAD
There's a couple good Rachel/Ragna thibgs out there.
Rachel was pure y/u/ribait until CS.
If Japan was even remotely capable of writing hatesex, Rachel x Terumi would be one of the best pairings around.
I think it's highly likely that Kajun and Shiori will be in Variable Heart. Taro might appear as well.
Explain to me how this bitch can miss the hint when Kagura's hitting on her but think Ragna's asking her out later?
Because Kagura is just there
Also Noel is dumb
my name is user and I'm here to say
kokonoe is the best girl and needs more art.
She only acknowledges Ragna as a man.
litchifag talking about shit taste
"Are you and Ragna.....n-never mind let's go hang out with Makoto..Aahaha.
Is that where vamp comes from?
good thing she doesn't actually like Ragna
Shut up, Jack!
She likes him, it's just that she's a clingy sibling. The very fact that Ragna is walking around in Central Fiction is proof of that. That is, unless think they were talking the power of some other "little girl"
It's actually from the power of Taokaka. They needed to give her an important role after Bang got one in CP
Noel's all scared and paranoid in Central Fiction act 3, Mu 12 is paranoid as fuck, Tsubaki finally standing up to Jin and Hakumen and growing a fucking brain, Dark Tsubaki coming from another timeline to kill Noel and is fighting Makoto, Mai Natsume getting a new manga, Es is playable and with her azure eyes again, even through xblaze ended with her losing her azure powers, Naoto apparently isn't the naoto from this time, Relius saw him get rektd by Clavis, Terumi about to rape Noel again, Jin no longer has Nii-san mode, Ragna trying to pull his own Zero requiem.
Is this the end? What about Saya?
Mori has said repeatedly that Ragna's story will conclude with this game.
So when are we getting a game where Rachel and Tritinity run a bunny girl club?
The club would go out of business due to a lack of customers.
what? no it wouldnt.
They look very aerodynamic. Like Ferrari anime girls.
ferrari anime girls
This one's enough to give you diabetes.
Pretty sure everyone in Blazblue would fuck anyone else under the right circumstances, the girls just happen to be sluts because it keeps you coming back to play the game and buy new ones.
Noel canonically does not wear panties, so I don't know why artists keep drawing her with them.
Why is a boy wearing a bunny outfit?
Why would Blazblue alone run counter to the purityfagging employed by literally everyone else?
Citation: Every single image of Noel in any Blazblue game. All cheek, no panties... unless she's only wearing the metal crotch plate Mu has.
she might just be wearing a really tiny g-string
She's probably wearing that crotch plate, or a c-string. I think a g-string is too conservative for that slut Noel
What the actual fuck? Did they switch her weapons because Hibiki uses AoT swords?
They don't. All the girls are virgins who have never been in a relationship, with the exception of two characters who were introduced as the mothers of existing characters (Ignis, Nine). A number of girls are in love with guys (Celica, Es, Litchi, Mai, Rachel and Trinity), but their love is of the unrequited variety; they're not in a relationship with the guys that they love.
Even Makoto, who's the most sexually open girl in the series, has only been implied to have have sex; it has never been confirmed to have happened.
why would they confirm it when otaku would bitch and whine about it? A better question is why would a healthy young woman abstain from sex and apply that reasoning to the characters to see who is likely to be a virgin or not.
Rachel as an immortal vampire obviously isn't a virgin.
This image ( ) makes it clear that they originally intended Mai to use a sword and dagger as an adult. However BB already has a number of payable characters that wield swords: Es, Hakumen, Hibiki, Izayoi, Jin, Kagura and Ragna. Conversely there are no characters who use a spear. The most likely explanation is that ArcSys had a new fighting style they wanted to introduce to the games and changed Mai's weapon so that they could have an existing NPC use it instead of having to introduce a new character.
This could be justified in-universe by saying that Mai had trained with a wide variety of weapons and that she used swords during her time at the academy because those were the weapons that were available to her at the time. Also, Mai switching to a spear from a sword would allow her to compensate for her reduced reach and strength after her transformation to a woman. Women, such as the wives of samurai, have historically used weapons with greater reach in order to compensate for their shorter height and lower upper body strength when compared to men.
Also, that's a spear rather than a lance, but Mai would make a good Lancer.
I guess that Lambda and Nu have a lock on that as far as BB goes.
Only for Noel.
No. FUCK YOU NIGGER!
What cup size is Rachel?
Thanks to CP, there is official art of her molesting Platinum too.
Thanks to CP
art of her molesting Platinum
My fucking dick
Tsubaki a SHIT
Tsubaki a muslim.
all that untranslated rachel porn
I thought she was popular?
That looks disgusting, that fucking face
Seems like most of the Blazblue stuff is untranslated or unscanned altogether.
There's that one artist who does great Ragna/Nu vanilla that doesn't get posted anywhere.
Look, the blood sucking is very obviously a metaphor for sex.
That's why Dracula only eats virgin girls.
He's not fucking gay, you know?
Only in BB1's official promo art. Which really threw me for a loop because it gave me a very different impression of Rachel's character thanks to it.
Take a good look, THIS is the azure!
Demitri Maximov solved that problem by transforming his victims into virgin girls before feeding on them. BB should get Midnight Bliss too.
So what you're saying is that shota Ragna is so bad in bed that Rachel turned celibate after doing it with him.
A number of series have promotional art that is out of character.
I feel like all of Rachel's persisting characterization came after CT.
It was more like, his blood was so good it threatened to annihilate the very fabric of reality.
Can we have this but with Alpha? And more explicit material?
Alpha is just Nu-13 with Ragna's arm
From which game I need to start from to get into Blazblue?
I remember playing Calamity Trigger a lot back then but its been many years.
If you are interested in the story, then playing though Continuum Shift Extend and Chronophantasma Extend is sufficient to follow it. CSE includes and abridged version of the CT story mode.
being this retarded and gay
And eye, jacket, clothes, scythe, personality, and tattoos.
On her unmentionables.
Then thats not Ragna
How do you Ragna doesn't have tattoos on his unmentionables?
Wow, there sure are alot of blazblue doujins with Ragna in them, the strange thing is that a majority of them have him banging Noel. Isn't that incest? Also,shouldn't Celica be the one with the most doujins with him since she actually wants to fuck him?
Isn't that incest
No because Celica a shit.
Am I Terumi because I prefer seeing Ragna buried in Makoto's chestnuts?
Noel is the most popular girl in BB.
Am I correct in assuming Mai Natsume is going to be announced as a playable character soon, then Trinity Glassfield? For Mai I feel like getting a new manga along with a new weapon halfway to the game's release date in the fall is because that manga is suppose to jusify her appearance in the main plot. Remix Heart didn't give us anything important to the azure tales so variable heart better come correct. As for Trinity, i really think she'll be playable as well because she's got new line art like Kokonoe used to get and thanks to Jin she has a body. That means the roster is at this point, if I'm correct
That's the usual seven we get before the extend adds in our Celica or Relius. That would pretty much have to be Jubei or Alpha 1.
Rachel is best. If she doesn't win the Rbowl, there will be riots.
Theres not going to be an extend version of CF
i want to rape mai
What is happening here? Can someone explain? I never seen Ragna look so anxious.
Isn't that incest?
Were the fucking hell do you think you are?
Yes, it seems likely that Mai will become playable for the reasons you mentioned. There was no other reason to change her weapon and the timing of the release of her manga is pretty indicative that it's meant to serve as a bridge to the game. Japanese fans also seem to think that she will get added to the roster. Trinity also seems likely to become playable.
It's a joke ending. Ragna had a pair of cursed glasses put on him that made all the girls fall in love with him, and they were all about to kill him out of jealousy because he was so close to Celica.
I thought it was Tsubaki
only because of Imai.
Tsubaki had come first in one popularity poll, but Noel tends to score higher and has been ranked as the most popular ArcSys female character. People keep saying that Noel is Mori's waifu because she gets a ton of exposure and merchandise but the reality of the situation is that Noel quite simply sells and it therefore makes business sense for ArcSys to market her.
There is nothing wrong with siblings deepening their relationship.
Where is this from?
Looks like Bluraji.
Man they really slutted Mai up didn't they
That is how women tend to dress in this setting. Look at it this way; Mai wears pants and her top shows no cleavage, so her outfit could have been more revealing.
Did you play the games? She is only attracted to Ragna.
She pretty much hates everyone else.
you should add Es to that
Rachel is already guaranteed to win, especially with how CF has been going in terms of story.
Is Es the most conservative the series has even been?
Tsubaki and Es are probably the most modest in terms of clothing.
That's why the Germans like her so much, am I right.
Es is a much bigger qt though
Rachel as well. Also, Ignis and Nirvana show no skin.
Rachel's got that stealth armpit thing going on.
And Minerva's about as slutty as a robot can be.
What a wonderful universe.
Post adorable imoutos.
Noel constantly higher on polls and considered most popular
Taokaka is a literal who on all of the polls
Taokaka consistently gets the most fanart in general that isn't porn on pixiv and other general art sites
Explain this please.
Japan loves main characters for some reason.
Tao has a pretty unusual and memorable design. While she's not popular, it does mean that artists draw her.
She is probably the most popular character to casual players who don't participate in all the polls and such
aka normies , and a LOT of people are casual and don't care about polls or blazblue in general.
Also the fact she has no visible hands or face makes it relatively easy for less skilled artists to draw her.
We hate this girl though.
I didn't know I was talking to royalty here.
And Ragna loves her.
Ragna has no romantic feelings towards Noel, and their relationship is mainly just like that of a pair of uknowing sibligs.
Ah I thought I was on /blaz/ so I was saying "we" as in that general.
Also Ragna doesn't like her either, he screamed in terror when he saw her ugly face in the anime when he woke up on her lap.
There are people in /blaz/ that like Noel. Hell, there's someone that likes Litchi in /blaz/.
Rachel may be his wife, but Noel will always be his loving sister!
Oh boy, it's that delusional Rachelfag. Ragna will obviously end up with Serika (Celica) or no one.
Because in a game where Dante is the protagonist and golden darkness from to love ru is his love interest she is one of the few characters with a somewhat original design.
The entire love plot between Ragna and her has pretty much disappeared in CF. Her focus is mainly on Nine, and Ragna doesn't mention her in any of the Acts.
Rachel on the other hand spends the entire story trying to save Ragna, and Ragna defends her when she's weakened.
More and more characters I don't care about and/or actively dislike are starting to become more important, get more screen time, and are even becoming playable.
I hate this. I was so hype for Azrael and Terumi, and at least somewhat interested in Kagura, but none of the new characters are even remotely interesting to me.
Izanami and Nine are okay though, just not my cup of tea.
She's definitely up there.
Have you read BreakBlue: Stray Cat Extend?
Look at how disgusted Rachel looks. It just screams "ugh, this guy is old and busted!
BRING OUT NAOTO!"
Thank god for that, Celica was so boring.
get more screen time
If you're talking about CF, then we only have the Arcade Mode so far, where everyone who isn't Tager, Bullet, or Makoto has had some sort of relevance.
Azrael and Terumi have pretty big roles, in fact Terumi is most likely going to be getting back his old powers. CP was the worst in terms of newcomers because the only relevant characters in the entire plot were Kagura, Celica, Kokonoe, and the main trio.
Reminder that Kagura is jealous of Ragna for being somebody Noel would listen to.
You know Rachel's the best choice. Don't deny it.
He isn't, he's just joking, haha.
Implying the grim reaper isn't going to get it on with death herself
Rachel is immortal, how could she possibly be with Ragna after he dies and gets to spend eternity with his only true love?
Ragna dying hasn't stopped her before. Death's got nothing on Rachel.
Rachel is immortal
Not anymore. In CF she gave up her position as an Onlooker and has become mortal, all for the sake of protecting Ragna. Also at the end of CP, she said told Tsubaki to kill her as well.
Go away kondom
Funny how everyone hates her too just because she voices Noel.
I don't hate Kondou.
That's just what you think.
Guess you got me there.
This is the real OTP.
please stop stealing pictures from /blaz/ and crossposting it here, that's very rude
Literally impossible to tell if it's Jin or Shitel.
I stole that from Pixiv, so it's fine.
Noel has long hair.
They really need more Kokonoe and Tao scenes. They're fun together, with Kokonoe being a pseudo older sister character who can put up with Tao's crazy.
They only really get to have fun in gag reels and extra bits like TMML.
Are those the same shades Ragna wore that made every fucking girl want his dick.
Yes, there was a part 2. That seemed to be made solely so they could go "Look! Celica isn't affected either! Don't you guys love Celica yet?"
The Spectacles of Eros do not affect someone who is already in love with the person wearing them. Celica isn't special for being unaffected by them; anyone already in love with Ragna would be equally unaffected.
Reminder that Litchi ran away and left Taokaka to die to a paranoid Mu 12 who thinks everyone is her enemy now and Ragna had to come and save her. Litchi is completely irredemable now. Holy shit. Where did her heart go? The same with Trinity? Platinum exists just because Trinity made them and wanted to use them to experiment on how to drag out Kazama from Terumi. Then finally, there's Nine, is the story of blazblue basically that old bitches in love do some crazy shit?
I still think she's shoehorned in there. The gag reel takes place in the Chinese restuarant before Ragna sets off to find Noel, which means that at that point in the story, Ragna hasn't even met Celica. But for that gag reel to work they have to know each other so it doesn't make any sense.
Litchi, Trinity and Tsubaki have done some dumb or crazy things because of love, but that doesn't apply to every character. There are other female characters that are or have been in love without doing such things, including Celica, Mai, Nine and Rachel.
Stop trying to apply logic to a joke ending. How do you explain all those other women being around the Chinese restaurant? Why were Nirvana and Ignis alone near it?
I'm going to cry when Rachel doesn't win the Ragnabowl.
They walked? There's a difference between silly contrivances and continuity errors. You could get the gag ending before the actual introduction of Celica.
None of the gag reels care about continuity. You're just looking for an excuse to be angry about Celica.
They're silly nonsense, but the ones that happen from a result in a branching point pick up after that branching point.
By your reasoning Tager really does have the ability to transform into a giant robot and Makoto really is his pilot but we just haven't seen that happen in the main story. Otherwise it too would be a "continuity error".
First off, there's Kokonoe's super. Secondly, in all of those gag reels, at least they're all there (and introduced) by the branch point.
implying it's not another possibility
of the Continuum shift
Noel had short hair too once.
Even back at the academy it was still significantly longer than Jin's.
Thanks for posting proof mai is mentally retarded.
Mai is intelligent; her grimoire simply makes Noel's food taste great and it is in fact the only kind of food she enjoys eating.
No, Mai's brain was irreparably damaged when he obtained some female features on his body. That's why he thinks eating literal poison is delicious.
That's why he thinks eating literal poison is delicious.
Is it poison if you are immune to it and non-poisoned food makes you sick?
Anything is poison if it's made by Noel.
Mai is able to eat it just fine. Presumably it simply tastes really bad to normal people but is in fact edible.
You can see a giant Tager in her stage in the background,too.
So does that mean when they cross paths in central fiction Noel and Mu are not going to freak out and attack her thinking she's there to kill her like all the other entitled? I mean, so far there are only 3 people in the roster who are not entitled, Ragna, Litchi and Es. From Noel and Mu 12's prospective for the past 2 acts they've been constantly attacked by people including their friends
I don't know how they'd react to Mai, but Mai would never sacrifice others in order to gain happiness for herself. She has shown than in her manga.
Considering Mu 12 was literally about to kill Taokaka even through Tao constantly said she was there to protect her. Noel and Mu need to talk just as badly as Ragna and Noel and Rachel do. shit's getting really bad out there.
That poster is Mai, and that picture reminded him how erect Noel made him.
Mai's nipples can get erect, but in this case it was probably due to the fact she had been cold.
Funny how one person in this picture is a man, and one person looks like a man, and yet they're not the same person, ha!
Tsubaki is the worst friend ever.
She finally got her act together in Central Fiction.Which kinda makes Mai's role complete crap. we don't need another "Noel is my precious friend! I won't forgive anybody who harms her!" character. We need more people who are completely neutral or more people willing to gut Noel,Mu and anybody in their way for their wish.
This is true.
Do not believe this guy , that's just Tsubaki lying to get a chance to stab Noel in the back!
Mai's grimoire gives her a unique power that could play a role in the story. And the majority of the cast is still gunning for Noel so it's not as if there are tons of characters trying to help her.
Well the whole conflict now is people who want to kill Noel against people trying to protect her, right?
right. But there's also several third parties who don't care about that/ Ragna is zero requieming himself. Izanami and Nine know everyone is fucked either way because nobody can out match them in strength, Amane has a plan that probably doesn't require slaughtering an innocent and Terumi just wants to rage quit the universe. What could Mai possibly add here besides another body to the protect Noel party? Noel herself doesn't even know she's got allies, she's been mind raped so badly she sees everyone as an enemy even her own friends and herself.
The power of grimoire, which allows her to read thoughts and memories both from people directly and from things they have possessed, has tons of ways it could prove useful. It would be trivial to write her into the story.
Yeah I dunno. I'd bet Mai or whoever else would be a DLC character though, which might have more limited interaction with the plot.
Not necessarily. Kokonoe was a DLC character and that didn't stop her from playing a large role in the CP story.
Yeah but Kokonoe was already doing things before then in the story. Although I suppose they don't really care about that either because CP happened.
Sure, Kokonoe has been doing stuff since CT. That supports what I've been saying though; a character can play a significant role in the story before they are playable. The fact they are making a new manga and changed Mai's weapon indicates that they are already planning to introduce her in the game so they have had the time to write her into its story. If they include her it won't be a last moment decision that keeps them from integrating her into the game. If anything, the fact they introduced Mai and Kajun in CPE and that Mori had already created a draft version of Mai's adult outfit when Remix Heart was being published indicates that they've been planning to include her for years.
