"complete fandom experience" i guess? im just collecting screenshots of every moment certain favorite characters are in. just to have them.
I do the same thing. I kind of have a collector mindset so just having the screenshots is part of the fandom experience for me. (Especially when characters like Largo are barely screencapped at all.)
hehe. lots of van caps in this batch for you.
Which I greatly appreciate, thank you!
...and while on topic, I'm really glad that you spend the time trying to cap everything. I've gone looking through screencap galleries where the screencapper seemed to have a very obvious character bias (getting every frame for say, Guy, while missing a entire scene with Arietta, for example), but I haven't noticed anything like that with your caps. So, as someone that likes not-so-popular characters, your caps are awesome! :D
haha, no problem! i do have my biases though... i think i kept in every single one of arietta's frames when they were at fubras river looooool
...XD Well, it doesn't seem like you let your bias show too much, looking through the caps? You seem to have a fair amount of frames per moment for everyone (and while you had a lot of Arietta frames, it wasn't like. 25 of them just frame-by-frame turning her head. >->)
yesssss especially Largo. my brother's favorite character is Largo and he always wants screencaps and now references so he can try doing Largo fanart. he wants me to download every Largo shot from these screenshot packs for him xD
...Awww, that's...rather adorable of him, haha. XD ♥
My sister prefers Anise so I try to save stuff for her. :>
thanks for filling out the poll! also lol @ until my computer explodes
no problem ;) i really appreciate the screencaps.
is there any possibility of screencapping parts of battles later on? :D im a fanartist and i always find it a challenge to do art of characters performing attacks since there arent many good screencaps of them anywhere for reference.
of course! i have a few sitting around already
but i didn't think anyone would want them since they're really messy. let me know if you want specific characters/artes/etc and i'll try to get them up asap :)
Ahh, to clarify on the 'to follow along with the story' answer, I'm treating these caps as yet another canon review on my part. 8D
thanks for clarifying, although now i'm more confuzzled haha. what does canon review mean?
Basically, it's just reviewing a fandom in general, like rereading, rewatching, replaying. I often reread the English and Japanese script of the game to help make my translations sound more like the characters, for example. So, I'm treating looking through the caps as yet another review. ^^
you're so... dedicated lol omg. also i don't think i got the chance to say this earlier, but your scanlations are a++++++!
You realize you're dedicated too, right? With the whole capping the game thing. ♥ And I really appreciate all the capping you're doing. Out of curiosity, are you going to keep them in their default outfits the whole game? I know this other screencap gallery that put Luke into viscount after a while, and I always thought he looked incredibly dorky in that. XD
oh... i guess i am. i never thought about it like that lol it was just kind of fun for me to do this.
i actually was planning on keeping them in their default outfits for the whole game, and then if people wanted i could go back and play again and get (less) caps with them in the outfits.
it's like i'm basically playing this game for the first time, even though it isn't, because i stupidly deleted my savefile. :||||||
"The Frontier Fortress Kaitoor."
Just your friendly neighborhood Fonicist checking in.
rofl. spiderman you may not be, but maybe you could tell me where the "z" came from? or not, lol idk, i was just wondering~
(Let's not talk about how I can argue with myself for five minutes about why the R is all dropped below the line...okay?)
If I had to speculate? Z in fonics is awkward looking and in Japanese it may have been spelled more similarly to 'Kaitoor.' (I could see it being 'Kaitsuru', also, though, which goes right back to why does it look that way.)
Just wait until you get to Keterburg. Oh, the ranting.
right. i was looking at it and wondering if it said "kaitsuru" but... i'm guessing maybe they wanted to ~westernize~ the name lol
also, i love how intense you get about this lmao
Eh, they westernized a couple of them. ...I don't get the transition from frontier to border, though. They mean different things but...it's a stopping point.
Oh hush. I have no other outlet for my obsession with this alphabet.
Well, a frontier is not the same as a border. A border is between two countries, and a frontier is just the limits of one civilization pushing out into 'wilderness'.
We also have very distinct ideas of what a frontier is like in the US, going back to the "Old West" ideas. The Old West isn't really relevant to Kaitzur so I image they went with 'border' for that reason as well.
no problem! thanks for filling out the poll too :D
I haven't yet, but I'm hoping to do some icons or something once you get to Natalia's introduction, especially the "You're so strange" part.
i'll try to get there faster then, hee.
Yay! I do love me some bitchy Natalia.
