[Translation] 4Gamer Round Table Discussion Part 1 (Mafia Kajita x Kinoko Nasu)

Happy new year! To start off 2019, I’m translating the recent 4Gamer discussion between Mafia Kajita and Kinoko Nasu on FGO. The original interview can be found here. The original interview is very long (I’ve hit 8000 words already with just this half of the interview), so I’m splitting the posts into two. Part 2 can be found hereMinor spoilers for FGO ahead. Enjoy reading!

Major correction: On a previous version of this post, I had misread the name of FGO’s previous director, Akihito Shouji, as “Atsushi Kenji”. This has since been corrected, and older translations that used the wrong name will be corrected as well.

[Shadowverse] Neutral Midrange Forest – Decklist and Writeup

Shadowverse’s new expansion has been out for a week, so you know what that means: time to make this blog’s subheader even less accurate. I’m here to post a write-up on my favorite new deck of the expansion: Neutral Midrange Forestcraft. I had been expecting to main a Dark Alice deck for the Wonderland Dreams meta, but I’ve been having so much fun with this deck that I might be sticking with it for the rest of the expansion. So without further ado, here’s the deck list and an explanation of my card choices.

[Translation] Sakura no Uta – And So I Fell In Love With A Maiden

 

ss (2016-07-18 at 05.02.39)

This is a translation of the first part of Kawachino Yuumi’s monologue in ZYPRESSEN. I really loved this monologue, and while I don’t have the patience to translate the whole monologue, I wanted to at least share the opening lines, which is still a very good passage on its own. There aren’t any spoilers here, so feel free to read on. Many thanks to @hacaplus, who edited my raw translation. Enjoy!

[Yu-Gi-Oh Deck Recipe] Dawn of the Cyber Angels

ss (2016-05-19 at 05.47.09)

Ritual Monsters are my favorite out of the five Monster Card types (Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, and Pendulum) in Yu-Gi-Oh. Unfortunately, Ritual Monsters have been neglected the most compared to the other Monster types. While Nekroz was everywhere for a while, it became pretty clear that it’s way too powerful and received nerf after nerf until it’s no longer as good as before. After the success of Nekroz, there just haven’t been any strong Ritual archetypes. A friend played a Prediction Princess Shaddolls deck before, but that also got a huge nerf with the banning of El Shaddoll Construct.

So when the Cyber Angels got announced as a Ritual-focused deck, of course I had to try it out. I had encountered Saffira Herald control decks before, and the announcement of Ritual Sanctuary immediately jumped at me: this archetype had the potential to make that deck more usable. And most importantly, they’re hot waifus. There’s no way I won’t be trying this deck out.

After a few tries in messing around with the deck, I finally found a deck recipe that worked out for me. So how exactly do the Cyber Angels fare as an archetype so far?

(Note: This deck was built for the 2016.4 TCG banlist.)
