>Twisted Wonderland is an adventure rpg-style mobile game created by Disney Japan and published by Aniplex. Characters are inspired by Disney villains from various franchises (and they're hot).Concept, main story, and character designs are by Yana Toboso (Original creator of "Black Butler").

Take your own advice, dude… NRC is an all boys school. the "mc is really neutral uwu" is pure lip service to shut you spergs up. you need some major suspension of disbelief while playing the game to rationalize an f!mc as it is and the anime won't be able to handle it the same way it does. it's truly bizarre how adamant you are on the subject, and you're the only one too. do you play the game?

I hate this tranny looking faggot. I used to be neutral about him but he acts like he's so much better and mature than everyone despite being a massive fag. He also forces his faggotry on Epel who clearly doesn't want anything to do with his genderspecial shit, he's racist too for scolding him for speaking his harmless dialect, essentially changing what's charming about him. Just because Epel looks like a trap doesn't mean he has to be a fag like you too, Vil.

Reread the pomfiore arc, idiot. Half of it was about his interests and being GNC not making him any less of a man. He also hates ugly people and people who make excuses for their loser behavior, both of which are inherently transphobic takes kek.

>what event do you nonnies think will be next?

For november, endless halloween and chapter 6, then new years in december and apple boa and en anniversary in january. After that we'll get like tsumtsum and gala ortho. Don't expect to see jamil until like july 2023, that's a summer event.

Yeah I'm hyped for book 6 (and the guest room!) too. I stopped playing jp shortly before it came out and once they announced twst en I decided I'd just wait for it there, so happy they picked up the pace with releases compared to how jp used to be.

Outside union riddle and some event freebies, I'm most looking forward to the cards I mentioned unfortunately: both tsum cards, apple boa epel, and gala ortho all of whom have a high chance be released close together. The hot topic lilia card is another one I really want, and another that could end up coming early 2023 if they start releasing the club cards as soon as we get the guest room… At least silver is the last SSR I have my heart set on this year so I can save a little after that.

Twst is chill if you're ok with missing a bunch of SSRs and flunking exams. SR cards are always either event freebies or drop like crazy in the gacha and there are some super cute ones like ghost marriage lilia, beans day vil, a million halloween cards, etc.

No. 249077

Honestly, it's barely a game. I just do logins and mostly treat it like a VN. An anime is in the works if you want to hold out for that, though.
Vil isn't really coded as an unrepentant asshole character, we're just haters, kek. There are multiple other characters who do fit that bill though.

Yesss, hot topic Lilia! I'm largely looking forward to birthday cards in the near future, I'm glad that those are much easier to get your hands on.
The room is going to be so much fun when it drops! Also looking forward to what anniversary will have in store.
Pacingwise, I'm a little confused as to why we're moving so fast (not that I'm complaining)? I wonder if we'll get simultaneous releases eventually because at this rate we might catch up.

Partially because they want to catch us up with jp, partially because jp was dry as hell in the first year+ due to covid and they want to skip the filler periods that chased a lot of players off. Jp adopted a more aggressive release schedule too this year with multiple new SSRs every month.

>I'm largely looking forward to birthday cards in the near future

Some of the union birthdays are hilarious, I think Azul's is one of the funniest cards in the game. In terms of beauty, though, I totally agree with you. Broomquet Birthday can't be beat.

I'm incredibly hyped for Book 7. I can't imagine the circumstances that would cause somebody with seemingly endless magical reserves to begin with to overblot.

Can overblot be purely emotional? That was the case for Leona, right?

I wonder how they'll manage to combat it, too… I haven't read any of Book 6 yet (waiting to enjoy it with friends when it drops on NA) so I'm definitely missing a lot of hints, but my mind is running wild with excitement.

That aside, I wonder if they're actually planning/able to catch up as some other anons in this thread have said. If they keep attempting to coincide seasonal events, they can't exactly go full steam ahead with even just the books, since the events definitely do take place in a chronology in relation to the events of the books.

Nonas, who is your oshi and why? Do you have an OTP, or are you a yumejo? Who do you absolutely hate? Please, I would love to see what sort of a spread we have here on lolcow.

I’m a Jamil oshi. I love seeing a seething repressed (2D) boy. The Leona and Jamil scenes during book 5 had me howling. Pairings wise, dubcon Jamil and Kalim are just good. The set up is practically served to us on a silver platter. I also like Ruggie for his similar bitch boy position, but they’re definitely different flavors of character. I guess I don’t hate anyone, but Malleus is probably the most boring to me for whatever reason. I get that there’s supposed to be some sort of gap moe appeal but it’s just so… whatever.

No. 259443

I've just started book 4 and trying to get past the level cap so it's too early for me to form an opinion over most of the cast but I really love floyd, probably enough to consider him my oshi. I also love ruggie and Jack especially, some of Jack's scenes were so silly ngl but I'm a sucker for the tough guy tsundere archetype and this time is no different. I like all of them so far but if I had to pick a least favorite ; silver. He just didn't stand out to me, kinda bland imo.
No potential pairings caught my eye so far but I'd love to see Azul being pathetic and desperately clamoring for an uninterested party's attention because he somehow convinced himself he's unlovable and will die alone.

My husbando is Rook Hunt, gosh I love him and his blunt bangs so much. I honestly can't hate anyone in the game, everyone is kind of cute in their own ways.
And when it comes to pairings, anything with Rook is great Except somehow Rook/Vil or Rook/Neige idk, it's weird, like he admires them because they're beautiful but I don't think he wants to fuck them Unlike Rook/Floyd, Rook/Ruggie and Rook/Leona because he seems to be more interested in them as people and not as objects of admiration (I know I'm a great mental gymnast).
Another ship I love is literally anyone from the heartslabyul dorm with Riddle, he's adorable and I want to see him being the ultimate short top. I know he probably spills his spaghetti at the first compliment or whatever but I think he would be a great unexpected top
And bringing out my old school fujo, yeah, I smoke crack everyday and I like my pairings being kind of unexpected, like Kalim/Jade/Floyd, Azul/Jamil, Vil/Cater, Jack/Vil and Sebek would look cute with Azul.

Vil/Cater has such a good appeal!! And I normally hate “nice” pairings but Jack/Vil is a really great set up.

I feel like Riddle could only manage to top someone with absolutely no hope of ever attaining top energy such as Azul, for example kek. I agree with you on the appeal of a short stack top though. I think this just has to do with my perception of current Riddle. He definitely has room to grow into it more.

No. 261452

I hope that you got Jamil's new card!

Rook is my oshi all the way! I'm a yumejoshi for him, but I won't go on about it as I've already indulged myself too much on that in the husbando threads this week.

I like Rook in hunter/prey relationship dynamics, with characters like Leona, Floyd, and Malleus. I don't think they're very sustainable in the long term, but he himself stated that he's currently unsuited for a committed romantic relationship in the ghost marriage event, as he's still fickle and easily swept up by each new beautiful thing that comes his way. So I can see the exhilaration of that chase working well for him.

I know that Rook/Vil is popular, but due to the aforementioned line, I don't see Rook's commitment to Vil as romantic? I swear, it's not yumejoshi cope! For Vil, I really like Jack/Vil. I think that at first glance, it wouldn't seem like they'd get along, but their interactions throughout the game show mutual respect and appreciation. (JP event spoilers) It was so cute when Vil was too pleased to nag Jack after getting called beautiful by him in the Fairy Gala event! And beyond his overblot flashbacks in book 5, Vil seems to have a lot of happy childhood memories surrounding the time when he was friends with Jack, such as the one about playing in the snow. Clearly, I have a lot of feelings about them…! I could go on!

No. 261457

I think that Silver would be bland in most other games, but he works out well in TWST due to the characters being "villainous" in a sense. That earnest perseverance in always believing the best of people makes for some entertaining interactions.

No. 261464

Jack/Vil is so cute. Love a ship with two characters on the same wavelength who just really like each other, and then Vil being a celebrity gives it all a bit of potential drama to work with.

Also, Jack's line about how wolf beastmen mate for life makes me wonder about wolf culture in general and what kinds of culture clashes you might get in a human/beastman relationship. One of these days I'm going to write a fic about Vil trying to get the local wolf community to take him seriously as Jack's partner.

No. 261667

Yes! I love how Jack doesn't butt heads with Vil because he a) naturally understands the implied importance of the things Vil is strict about and b) isn't influenced by popular opinion as somebody who is individually headstrong despite knowing when to defer to those he respects (very lone wolf and pack animal of him at the same time). Likewise, Vil consistently shows an affection for the Jack's unique qualities and never seems to get as harsh as he does with others because he knows Jack values balanced diligence and strength in the same way he does, despite manifesting it differently. It's such a nice harmony!

I do think that Vil tends to be higher maintenance when you're in his personal circle because he expects a lot out of those around him, and Jack saying that wolf beastmen stay dedicated to one partner for their entire lives really sealed the deal for me. I can see where their continued childhood friendship turns into a committed longterm romantic relationship from there. Isn't it sweet for a guy like Jack who believes in such lifelong commitment to end up with his childhood friend?

I'd love to read that fic one day, nonna! I always wonder how relationships between different races work in TWST, but I doubt we'll ever find out, haha.

i've only just recently started playing, but i used to play enstars which is a very comparable game imo and it strikes me how different the fanbase is. enstars arguably leans more into the otome aspect than twst does (for a start the producer is canonically female), and yet in the western fanbase there's way more shipping fan content between the boys themselves than self inserts with the producer. meanwhile, twst remains ambiguous with yuus gender (i struggle imagining a female mc in a all boys school though) and yet when i did a cursory check on ao3 its almost all self insert fics with female mcs. the western fanbase seems to be heavily skewed, its really strange considering how fujo adjacent i consider twst to be & how little emphasis they place on the otome aspects

I see a mix of both, but the fujos for TWST in particular tend to be genderspecials.

i kinda get you, i like the idea of Rook/Vil, but it somehow just doesn't work in my head, like, the dynamic of a knight(Rook) and his "queen"(Vil), the whole subservience and loyalty thing i like to imagine for them, but i just can't really see them fucking i guess kek

It's weird, the jp fandom is heavily dominated by fujos organizing pictsquare weddings for their ships every other week but the western fandom is 90% self inserters horribly mischaracterizing the whole cast and producing hideous art like smog. Maybe it being a disney thing is attracting a surplus of autists idk but I'm used to ignoring western fandoms in favor of silently browsing jp and korean art posts ever since tranny shit got popular so it doesn't bother me much.

enstars is also full of genderspecials kek. the fans i saw tended to be underaged and constantly engaged in 'calling out' problematic shit/proshippers/whatever tf. i haven't seen enough of the twst fandom yet to see if its on the same level of brainrot

honestly i did figure that the disney thing played a big part of it. maybe this speaks more to the media i consume but i have never seen such aggressively hetero search results on ao3 for any japanese media whos sole purpose is 'cute boys'

yeah im hoping that when ive played a bit more of the story i can start seeking out japanese fan media. the lack of ship content in the western fandom is seriously throwing me for a loop. japanese fans must have seriously low opinions of the western fanbase

No. 284717

AYRT, yeah, it's something similar to me too. Vil and Rook have a unique relationship amongst the housewarden-vice housewarden pairs in that it seems less traditionally personal and more about Rook's admiration of Vil as both a fan and an appreciator of his beauty as art. Vil's specific complaints about Rook here and there seal the deal to me in making it seem that their relationship is more coincidental to Rook's general pursuit of beauty, even if he does go to great lengths for him.
Not bashing the ship though, I do totally see the flip side of how its popular through a romantic interpretation. Going based off of my view of their relationship as it stands now, too, I think that it could develop in that direction eventually. After all, Rook did say that it's him as he is currently that makes him unsuited to a committed relationship.
If I'm being honest, the majority of TWST's "flagship" romantic ships don't appeal to me for whatever reason. I'm mroe fond of them as something platonic to grow off of, i.e. Leona's subtle looking after of Ruggie's wellbeing while knowing his hardships or Jamil and Kalim developing into proper friends after years of so much not being expressed on Jamil's end. Idia/Azul is probably the only very popular one I have a strong interest in (Idia being so cringe that even Azul never fathomed his pedigree was so funny. Sycophant arc?)
The game also does do a very thorough job of charting out consistent interactions with fair consideration towards individual personalities/histories, so I'm drawn more to ships that lean on the side of crackshipping.

AYRT, I don't spend much time in fandom spaces overall so enstars being like this is news to me… Guess I live under a rock, haha.

i can only speak from my experience playing but i think enstars tries to push the otome aspect a lot, while also catering to the fujos
only somewhat. the boys all have unique interactions with the producer, you'll get a lot of them that want to protect her or joke about dating her etc. there was an event i played called date plan a-z which felt otome-y as fuck.
but despite that the western fanbase definitely feels very fujo, they usually only ship the boys with eachother – so i agree with you there, that is pretty much the point i was making.
i think you're right that the ambiguity of yuu makes self inserters feel more at ease though: i remember when enstars got its english version there were people complaining that you couldn't choose the producers gender and shes explicitly a female lmao. enstars for whatever reason seems to have a lot of aidens playing it.

garbage taste. sorry to sound like a condescending bitch but i'm going to brush it off as you being a noob and that your actual ranking will be very different in the future, this looks like a first impression tier list.

events rerun once every 1.5-2~ years, 2nd parts can always be read independently. sometimes first parts don't rerun at all like for beans day and potentially halloween part 1. no new dorms, yes new chapters, many other new features are coming with our half ani.

The reruns of the phantom bride and now the starsending events actually didn’t rerun at all in japan, a lot of people suspect the reason they’ve returned is because the english server is attempting to catch up with the japanese server and properly time the upcoming big events (masquerade into book 7). Other events like vargas/beans/fairy gala had second parts that were spaced around a year apart like the other nona said. The short answer is some return and some don’t, kek.
Now is a good time to start though, you’ll be here for the first portfest coming likely in august, and then the masquerade event in the fall.

Idia is someone I might actually rebound with, like Vil. A slow burn type. Actually, he was the person I chose at the very beginning of the game based off his design because I resonated with him, but I have a personal vendetta because I don't like the whole technology theme of his dorm and I didn't realize how extensive it was until later on. For Ortho a miracle would have to happen to make me love him because I don't usually like shota/robot characters. He is very cute tho. I fucked up in putting him so low because I still like him…I actually want to beat up Cater.
Also, that confirms I was an idiot for not playing phantom bride. I was even telling myself I'd regret not playing. There is truly no rest for the retards among us.
Oh also, my tastes were actually extremely different when I first started playing - I had Jamil and Floyd near the bottom - so that makes me curious…how does peoples' tastes change with time? What makes mine scream twist-newfag?

…unironically yes. vil is the one good man at NRC that isn't good due to mental retardation or slaughtering humans for hundreds of years then having a martin luther king epiphany after finding one cute baby. caycay has to grow on you…

starsending did rerun last year! phantom bride's rerun is a little complicated. jp's first phantom bride didn't have the idia ssr, only ace. but the second one was almost exactly the same just with idia's ssr and lilia's event sr, and it did serve as their rerun of the event. in twsten, they didn't bother releasing the earlier version of the event, so we got the 1.1 version twice. it's true that some events don't rerun though, like beans day part one, new years, and halloween part. their cards will be available again but the events themselves i dunno.

Poor Cater, I actually think he’s a pretty interesting character but the english translation does make him seem super shallow. He’s ironically one of the most formal characters in twst, so his playboy extrovert charade is supposed to come off like a front, but the translation kind of fails to have that come across.

the hype from gala what if drowned it out i think, pretty sure it ran right after either that or tsum

it looks like you picked your favorites at face value vs how the characters interact with eachother, why they act the way they do, how they change after certain story events, etc. basically not every character has equal writing quality. of course everyone is somebody's fav but newbies tend to get bored of the flatter ones as they become oldbies reading more of the story and events, and start to appreciate the solid ones.

WHAT?! Chapter 4 was what made me into a deranged Jamil simp and a Kalim stan. It was so dumb and petty, I loved it. Anyway, yeah, I just like the edge. Vil just tries too hard to be pretty (which reminds me of a MtF) which is a turn off to me. Trey seems as nice as a guy as Vil and I don't really think he's actually an idiot.
Yeah, sorry nonny, kek. He looks appealing so no shame there, but his role in the early American chapter is…not good. He exists as a clout creature. I did see the translation drop a clearly American meme so I wouldn't be surprised if it is botched. I'm learning how to read Japanese so maybe someday I'll understand how to be Catered to.

Point taken, I have judged him poorly. But, even considering that Vil is simply too fabulous for me to handle and that my tier list isn't about writing quality? I never liked the evil queen either and it translates over to his arc (while my bias wants Idia to be a tiny bit more like Hades, though then again being a slight shut-in is a fun contrast to everyone else).

I would warm up to Vil, however, if he does have fun and interesting development in the events consistently even if I don't at all like his looks nor his arc. It's a bit of a bummer that apparently some characters are completely flat in events compared to how they are in the story anyway. Also, picrel unrelated, I just like trash.

I’ve never heard the english fandom trash Jamil, I love him and a lot of fans do. If anything the western fandom probably only has a problem with him because he’s basically a slave servant, kek.
Translation wise I think they all have small problems but it’s rare they’re aggressively mischaracterized, and when they are it’s usually inconsistent and random in certain events. YuuRei20 on twitter talkes about the translation differences a lot.

The EN fandom also loves Malleus who is not popular in JP outside like… Malleo fujos so make of that what you will. They have different tastes, the only constants are Octa because incest fish mafia and Leona because smug catboy. Twst has a good localization overall, few hiccups here and there but it's much truer to the source material than the fanmade translations available. You can tell the twsten team are trying harder than the average gacha localization team, it's extremely refreshing.

It's news to me that Jamil is hated by the EN fandom though. Is it because he had the least sexy overblot? The only glaring translation error he had was in his birthday boy vignette but people who don't like him aren't going to be seeing that.

There is one glaring translation issue with the EN version of Jamil, which is that they scrubbed all mentions of slavery from Jamil's dialogue.
People who don't like him usually dislike him because they consider him overly bitchy in general, and too mean to Kalim in particular, over what they perceive to be issues that are long settled. When you realize that Jamil and his family are literal slaves, his persisting salt even past the "resolution" of Book 4 makes more sense.
I've even seen people cheering for Leona's "epic own" of Jamil in the most recent Ignihyde book, which is just sad. The perception seems to be that Leona and Jamil have similarly sour lots in life, with Leona coping with things in a more "acceptable" way (sorry for all of the scare quotes). But Leona being a second prince is genuinely not comparable to Jamil apparently coming from generations of slavery.
This scrubbing of unsavory notes from the original text isn't specific to Jamil, by the way. Pomefiore's book may have sucked ass, but Vil's treatment of Epel makes a little more sense when you realize that he's teaching Epel that femininity isn't a liability, pushing back against mildly misogynistic dialogue from Epel. It's not even like Epel was THAT misogynist, so I'm not sure why they scrubbed it.
I'm less knowledgeable about this one, but I've heard that parts of Leona's backstory in his chapter were sanitized as well. As a result, the mental break that caused him to overblot seems a lot more sudden than it actually is with context.

I've heard this criticism before but with the word slavery having such a strong connotation in english, I think servant was a better choice. Modern day slave owners would prefer to dance around words like slave, slavery, etc. unless they're speaking about slavery in a historical context or they're speaking ill of other slave owners or something. In twst's context, a filthy rich Arab boy and his unenthused "servant," that word carries a similar weight to the term "the help." Imo it would have been perfect if Jamil had stuck with servant up until he OB'd, and then started referring to it as slavery. It's too strong a word to be throwing around a lot. "I'm Kalim and this is my literal slave Jamil! Is there something wrong with slavery?" would make Kalim come across as too retarded for readers to understand where he's coming from kek.

That's the thing, though? Jamil isn't just unenthused, he's been building up malice towards a position he's been born into and expected to make himself less than for his entire life.
Slavery is a strong word, but it is what it is and it is what makes the most sense for what happened. If he's just a servant, it's a role that he can technically leave freely and it's then largely on him and his own mental limitations that he feels the way he does about it. But the reality of the situation is that Kalim's family literally owns Jamil's family and Jamil is expected to be satisfied with this no matter who he is as an individual. Everything he has is for the service of Kalim, and it's inescapable.
It's not that Kalim doesn't understand that there could be something wrong with the situation, but it's in line with his character to see the best of things and believe the best of things. So of course he buys this image his family and Jamil's family have built of willing servitude to the Al-Asim's when in actuality they're in possession of other human beings. It's more nuanced than just "servant" lends.

It gets the real issue across for sure but the writers don't want to get into that. The real solution for slavery would be to abolish it, there's no way to get around it. That's why Jamil's problem was always shown as him having to not achieve what he can and cleaning up after Kalim instead of being a possession of him. If the writers said Jamil's problem is that he wants to be a human being instead of a gadget to help a rich kid, they'd have to solve that instead of Kalim being oblivious to Jamil's struggles with having to change his grades and clean up after Kalim's mistakes. Not only would they need to write how Jamil's family would take the fall, it would also tip off Scarabia's dynamic fully if Jamil ended up succeeding and not giving a shit about Kalim from now on (given he's alive and still goes to school). None of the actual issues with slavery were addressed, it was closer to teenager struggles with pressure from parents' expectations than it was to what a slave actually thinks about their owners. So using the word slave with the story being the same, while accurate to real world, would give their story a dynamic that never gets addressed and would make the writers seem like they don't think of slavery as a big deal.

No. 308112

That's why slave owners prefer to use servant even when in reality their "servants" are indeed slaves that will face harsh repercussions if they attempt to leave; it sugarcoats the severity of the situation. And it's the same thing happening in twst, so it would be more ooc for Kalim to just straight up call Jamil such a negative word instead of the sugarcoated one. I don't believe the person who originally started the slave vs servant discourse was a native English speaker. I always felt like it was a good localisation choice that would unfortunately filter some ESLs, but given that many of them need a VPN to access Twst EN, it being a bit more tailored to the western perception than a word for word translation should come as no surprise.

Tbh my opinion is that the biggest reason why the English fandom has so many issues with mischaracterization is because thats what English fandoms do. They're full of underage tards who lack reading comprehension which leads to them getting filtered alongside ESLs when faced with anything that requires reading between the lines, they insert politics where they don't belong, and they treat their headcanons as gospel. Loud 14 year old he/they/possums spitting the worst takes you've ever seen about colorful anime boys on social media are inescapable. I just run them over.

I don't think that nonny's point was that Kalim should call Kamil a slave. Anyway, I think it's important to note stuff like this: instead of Jamil saying something like his family will suffer, or that if something goes wrong they'll starve and be homeless originally…in English it's complaining that his parents will lecture him or similar lower stakes stuff. Yeah, it's fine if you think the latter is more compelling writing and that only ESL people would find the former to encapsulate his trauma and motivations better, but to me it just seems like the translators did intend to obscure the reality of his situation. Other words like "master" (which has no special historical connotation in the US) were cut out as well. In my opinion the issue is less about "servant/slave" being used or not and more that his reasoning for overblotting seems pettier, and his situation seems less urgent than it actually is.

Also, there's apparently been other instances of other dark elements being removed or watered down. Which is fine with me, but it's weird of you to act like some fans are deranged for finding the original script more to their tastes and ideas of the characters. This game doesn't really give us that much to begin with and >>308111 is right anyway.
And by "run them over" do you mean you go on other sites just to get into fights with 14 year olds? I don't get it, kek.

AYRT, I agree with your ultimate conclusion. I do think that the TL could have maneuvered around the OG text's unwillingness to engage with the full implications of Jamil being a slave without neutering his grievances to the extent that they did, though.
I'd leave it if it were a one-time thing with Jamil, but the localization's repeated interference with proper characterization through sanitization of issues is just annoying. Especially when you can tell that they've done it to diminish wokeoid infighting over which characters have the moral highground… Maybe they didn't want TWST discourse to reach Enstars levels of stupidity but I don't spend time in the fandom so I'd rather just get the the text as originally intended.

If I have 200 pulls as a strict f2p right now and want Port Jack/Masquerade Idia/Dorm Leona, should I pull for Dorm Leona at 1.5 anni or wait til 2nd anni?
Port Jack is just because I like him.
Masquerade Idia is an effort to gather the SSS team for Omni Basic (I'd still need Dorm Kalim and Pom Epel so I'm in the for the long haul here).
Dorm Leona is to complete the Rook meta team, of which I already have all the other units ready and 10/10.
I'm worried about screwing myself over by pulling now just in case I get really bad luck on Jack and Idia's limited banners, but I also haven't rolled in ages and am itching to have a decent Flora card, which would also benefit me in my abysmal Water Basic scores.
What would you do? Pull the trigger? Wait?

No. 316756

I wasn't around at the time, but a lot of JP-side fans dropped the game because there was a massive content drought during book 5 due to Disney America suddenly deciding that they need to get involved with TWST and requiring all content to be vetted through them (or so I've heard). Because of the low content output, and then the shit story Pomefiore got as a result of the revisions (and I may be wrong, but I think it was the only main story content they got that year?) people were understandably mad. A lot of Pom fans in particular left at that time as their corner of the fandom got really toxic because of it.
Maybe a differnt nonna who was around at that time can elaborate.

No. 316789

As a certified yume who's been playing JP since launch, I can tell you by sheer fanart creation the game has dropped a lot. I'm still sad my favorite yume artists don't seem to draw for the fandom anymore, but I also understand it as the waits for JP were insane during book 5 and 6. Currently it's actually better since we get more then 1 event a year and some main story content. Also in terms of merchandise I see being released, there's almost nothing compared to the sheer amount of merchandise that was sold the first 2 or so years.
What makes it worse is that it's not really anyone's fault from the developer's side, but that and covid really fucked the game over. Not that it still doesn't print money, but it would have kept a lot more of that traction if there hadn't been such a massive drought for so long. It makes me sad, I genuinely love the game and story.

I question this too. I used to be a Vilfag for years since the start of the game until his story came out (and Ignihyde's). I had to take a break between Pome's story because there just wasn't anything once I was done theorising about the story and exhausting all the headcanons I could think of about him. Afterwards I stopped being so involved naturally because we get what, one or two event cards per boy in a year? And they're not as impactful as their main stories. There just isn't anything to think about, to create or consume content about after a while. It's like holding onto a relationship after not going out on a date for years and having small talk twice a year lol I think of myself as an unhinged self shipper but even I couldn't hold onto the bits and pieces of crumbs, and new content like events aren't enough to keep me as invested. I don't know if it's just me though. There was a music project I witnessed since its creation and people were making room shrines for characters they barely knew anything about, there wasn't even voice dramas out yet and characters had some people in such a chokehold they bought the one piece of merch there was enough to fill the entire room. I would love to see what their daily life is like when they focus on a single character enough to have breakdowns over them.

they have guest room furniture with unique interactions including voice lines in place of vignettes. they still have the unique home screen voicelines and art too.
