... :O
So much plot... so many loose threads winding together... so much... win.
After this video, I couldn't care less about the gameplay; it's story time

Seriously though, that white building with all the pillars, those capsules (with people inside?) and that blue-haired girl dressed kinda-sorta like a Sybilla have me totally salivating over the potential greatness contained in this. Maybe this is what the anime was supposed to have in it, but was cut due to budget/time constraints. Maybe the team was hoping for a hit and a greenlight for a second series, and when they didn't get it, they had to quickly shift the focus. Might explain the sudden shift from plot-driven to character-driven at about the 1/4 mark.

Double post but this is the Opening of the Game...
Cool, thank you for the link. Maybe I shouldn't have dismissed the game so easily... The art and animation look top notch, and there's the promise of an actual story much closer to the anime than the two manga have been.

If Game Rating reach more than 28/40 on Famitsu, maybe i will play it
No, i will play it even if rating will be worst
After all, The Game will explain more about the Background of Simoun...

I highly doubt it will ever be brought over here, seeing as how the only people who would probably be interested in playing it are those that have seen the series. All ten of us.

Also, I guess I'm the only one not impressed with the game OP. I was hoping for less recycled footage, and I don't really care about the animated eye catches. They were my least favorite thing about the show, and animating them doesn't make them much better.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with the game never being licensed

You must be. They only reused a few shots, and the animated eyecatches were just kind of a nice extra touch. No comments on the story and 'WTF is that thing?!?' scenes?

"Like Mai-Otome."

That's a good description of the drama cd. I suggest listening to it with an open mind, if you do. I am again amused by how this show, which takes itself so much more seriously (it's a world of difference, seriously) follows the HiME model in its marketing strategy.

I've added Morinaga Rika (Mamiina) to the hashihime seiyuu gallery: photo, major roles, info, notes, and links to sites.

She sounds like an interesting person, with a "subculture" background, including performances in underground clubs. She has a rock group called "function code()." I have enjoyed the blog at her home page. She tends to use masculine pronouns like boku and oira.

On her home page there is a link to a design house in Tokyo called Senseless Face. The designers are two sisters. The "gallery" link on their site shows their fall 2006 collection. They say they specialize in pink, ribbons, and kawaii. But that doesn't mean exactly what you might think. Suited to a tiny (149cm=<4'11") belle laide with subculture sympathies and a pop culture job, like Rika.

A little piece of Simoun trivia. In the new Negima!? OAV Chachamura makes the sound of a Simoun as she's sky-diving during the OP.

Hmm... this requires verification. Episode and timestamp, please.

Edit: Nevermind. I thought you meant the new TV series. I took an extra stupid pill this morning.

I just checking if it's not an Illustration of PS2 Game but it's not it
And checking for Last Issues of Magazines but not it too
Maybe an Artbook of Simoun will come out?
Or Maybe a really good fanart

Sure, it's the Negima!? Haru OVA (the raw I have is called 'Negima Spring OVA.avi'), 24.58s long. Chachamaru begins her descent at 03.56.

Hmm... I'm going with artbook. I hope, anyway, 'cause I like pretty pictures of pretty series.
However, if that's fanart, I need to track the guy down so I can give him a month's supply of internets for the best fanart I've ever seen.

Nice one

Though it is what it looks like.

Okay, where the Ael/Neviril and Paraietta/Kaimu version ?
