I am also looking forward to Starnova, although coming from the Sunrider games, I'm not sure what exactly to expect.
Im curious as to what the forum will be like after the release of Starnova. I imagine there will be some people in the opposite situation of having played an idol VN but not sure what to expect from a mecha strategy game.

I honestly think Sunrider is in a pretty good spot right now. The way I see it, Sunrider is now finally ready to open up to have a more branching story than it did in previous instalments. Although I didn't personally want to choose Chigara, I did think it made for a great narrative. I know many people didn't like the forced romance with Chigara, but think of how hard it would be to carry out completely different story routes throughout MoA, LD, and games still to come. I see the forced Chigara part of Sunrider as a sort of prologue or common route if you will. I believe the series now has lots of potential going forward to expand on player choices and differing outcomes.

I remember the release of Bloody Rondo quite fondly actually. Although I wasn't very into VNs yet at the time (Probably because of my very limited access to them), Bloody Rondo was released on my Birthday. I always wanted to learn Japanese so I decided I would learn it and the first thing I would read would be Bloody Rondo. Six and a half years later I only have a very basic understanding of the Japanese language, so I obviously have yet to read it. I still intend to read it someday, especially now that the world of VNs has me in it's grasp. One day...

I'm just curious as to how some of you originally got into Sunrider or Visual Novels in general. What are some of your favourites?
My first ever Visual Novel was "Planetarian: The Reverie of a Little Planet". Still one of my favourite VNs to this day but it didn't really spark my interests in them. I had even played Homeward, which I also really enjoyed, but it still wasn't what got me deep into VNs . Eventually I happened upon Sunrider Academy (I was unaware of the relation to Homeward until I saw it in Kayto's room). I credit Sunrider as the reason I got into VNs. Screenshots depicting a Twin-tailed heroine who looked like top tier Waifu Material convinced me to buy the game. As it turns out she was, and still is, the best girl. I played through MoA and bought LD when it came out and I have been hooked ever since.
Sunrider is one of my favourites alongside the Fault series, and the formerly mentioned Planetarian.

The Waifu Union and the Ryuvian Empire were victorious in their campaign to defeat the Empire of the Rising-Tsun. Together they have proven that no threat is too great for their collective strength and intellect. All Waifus can live together in harmony. Although this is a team victory for all, the final numbers are as follows:
Claude 8th: Eliminated April 30, 2017 Chigara 7th: Eliminated June 19, 2017 Cossete 6th: Eliminated June 25, 2017 Icari 5th: Eliminated August 22, 2017 Lieutenant Kryska "Blue-Haired-One" Stares 4th: 1161 Commander Ava Crescentia 3rd: 1305 Queen Asaga "Oakrun" di Ryuvia 2nd: 1533 Sharr Sola vi Ryuvia 1st: 1688
In the Ryuvian Empire, it is said that hugging Sola brings great happiness. And now the Galaxy finally know peace. *hugs Sola*
I know exactly what you mean Somasam. I'm glad we have pretty much achieved our goal of defeating the Rising Tsun, but there wasn't much of a challenge to it. It kind of makes all of the planning that went on ahead of time feel insignificant.
I always found it peculiar that Cossete has English lines from MoA. If you do the route in LD that allows you to use her in the last LD mission, and you have your combat voice lines set to English, she's fully voiced.
Well i have the theory she originally was going to be joining the sunrider crew, i always thought it was strange she had a similar jumpsuit like the other girls and even the number 7 on her chest
It's also interesting to note that the design of Cossete's plugsuit is the same as the Sunrider's Crew. Where as the plugsuits that the prototypes wear is different. Of course this doesn't really prove anything, it's just interesting to note.
I propose Cossete is tried in a Ryuvian Court. She will likely spend time in prison, but I too believe she deserves a chance at a normal life after this is all said and done. In the Ryuvian Empire of Queen Asaga, Justice always prevails! Our Hero of Justice always makes sure the galaxy is right and just!
As high officer of Queen Asaga's army, I sincerely apologize of behalf of our forces stationed in Solan Territories. We cannot always prevent the actions of rogue operatives, but we in no way encourage them. The Ryuvian Empire has no intention to turn its back on any of its allies, especially not the empire itself.
jack: It got pretty intense at times

jack: In StrikerS, it was Cyborgs and Mecha drones, as well as a full on carrier arc like something out of Gundam.

jack: And of course, Nanoha was still blasting people with her beams of Pink light at the end.

jack: Force, you had genetically engineered humans who were immune to magic, so they had to use mecha excoskelotons to combat them.

jack: It got nuts. Simple as that.

neppi: By the way. Sekai project didn't even bother to answer my email or twitter mail yet even after a week. I can live with a simple 'no' even if this is quite a pity if other VN companys let people in the backerkit (its at least more money for them).
Sept 16, 2017 13:56:58 GMT -8
neppi: But not answering is a real shame
Sept 16, 2017 13:58:04 GMT -8
Magpie: If it helps there has been something I have pending with their SM team since July. If you let me know your Twitter handle I will see if I can get it escalated for you?

neppi: You mean this? @neppigamer
Sept 17, 2017 2:43:55 GMT -8
Magpie: Right currently chasing it - what I'll do rather than using shoutbox is see what I can find and then either have SP reply or get back to you myself with a Twitter PM and let you know that way. Not expecting anything today because weekend but hopefully soon
Sept 17, 2017 3:51:53 GMT -8
neppi: Alright. Thank you very very much for your effort I really appreciate this!! Yeah you can PM me here or on Twitter if you have something Both is fine
Sept 17, 2017 5:51:40 GMT -8
neppi: btw. somehow the letters were made small. Its actually @ NeppiGamer (without the space). The shoutbox makes everything small after the @ symbol
Sept 17, 2017 8:45:15 GMT -8
neppi: Sorry for this. I just saw that by coincidence...
Sept 17, 2017 8:45:29 GMT -8
Magpie: I don't suppose you got a response this time around did you?
Sept 19, 2017 14:25:50 GMT -8
Magpie: More to satisfy my own curiosity
Sept 19, 2017 14:26:15 GMT -8
neppi: No answer yet. Not even a read symbol on Twitter ^^
Sept 19, 2017 14:27:00 GMT -8
Magpie: Ah well, they are aware regardless. Thanks!
Sept 19, 2017 14:27:57 GMT -8
neppi: Thats good :). No prob!
