@LapisWave Konasuba is likely one of the most sensible ones, given the high popularity it has in the west. RE;Zero is another that you can probably expect. I hope for the Madoka ticket eventually (Homura outfit for RA / GU...!) myself, but it'll likely be a later one if it occurs, lil bit more niche in recent years.
I don't want to be rude but honestly I don't understand the point of the thread, to be honest. It isn't the first event, it's just the first crossover and they picked one of the most well known licenses across borders. OP doesn't even seem to dislike the ticket, just didn't want it to be first? That seems like such an oddball thing to worry about.
@ZorokiHanuke said in First anime Collaboration choice isn't one that appeals to NA.:
And on the issue of advertising nostalgia? If that was how they wanted to bring me in, they failed miserably. I came here for nostalgia, yes, but was instead bombarded by anime, collabs and American flags. None of which existed in the original PSO. Heck, I don't even know what the default lobby music is yet....
Honestly, Phantasy Star has always been otaku content, part of its original charm were anime/manga style cut ins and storytelling. It was basically the more otaku version of Dragon Quest whereas Final Fantasy went a little more Western. The original PSO was honestly the most muted one, due to being heavily rushed and even it was full of maid robots and cute girls.
I think more of your issues probably lie with the age of the game. You're exposed to a thematic explosion of a great many years of content and events all at once.
Also, I just want to say to the GM fellow who reads all this: Thanks. I know you can probably only do and even convey so much, but you're reading, you're making your presence known and I just really appreciate that, which can be rare in this hobby lately. Thank you!
