    Honestly, I'm still SHOCKED that a Puyo anime of all things STILL hasn't been tried for all these years. I mean, considering the opening intros to both Puyo Puyo SUN AND ESPECIALLY Puyo Puyo~n, you'd sort of expect Compile would make an OVA at the very least. BTW, I'm not exactly counting the DiscStation shorts.

    Yeah, that just about sums up how I pictured Ms. Accord to sound in English overall. It's practically perfect for her.

    I KNOW, RIGHT?? Who would have thought Ecolo had a cute vulnerable side to him? And if I may add, this little comic helped remind me why Ms. Accord is one of my favorite Puyo characters. If someone like her can be THAT sweet to a hyperactive wacko like Ecolo and be patient (for the most part) with Satan's hare-brained schemes, I can greatly admire someone like that, personally.

    You know, now that you mention it, I can't believe that Ringo hasn't been seen interacting with that thing so far. If nothing else, I'd think that 20th Anniversary would be the one time you 'd TOTALLY expect her to notice it. Heck, she's the first opponent in Sig's story in 20th Anniversary, and I don't think it showed up even once when they were talking to each other.

    BTW, can I just bring up how funny it is when Schezo calls out Ringo on her ability to handle ghost-like beings like Ecolo, yet outright ghosts like Yu & Rei terrify the living daylights out of her in the "Satan and Ecolo's Amusement Park" Light Novel?

    It didn't and it's kinda odd how some of Sig's anomalies get almost no mention from other characters, like his waggling hair antenna, which nobody ever takes note of, outside of Fever 2, where it's a minor running gag of Sig's WakuWaku Course, in the sense that three characters have their own reactions to it:

    Oniko falls in love with him over it, starting the one sided conflict between Sig and Onion Pixy.

    Rider/Lidelle attempts to ask Sig about it and he confuses it for a challenge to a Puyo match.

    And Arle is just so captivated by it that she keeps staring at Sig for a bit, until he snaps her out of it, prompting her to give a slightly embarrased reaction. He's dreamy, ain't he Arle?

    It still happens in his animations from time to time, but nobody comments on it anymore, which is a little odd.

    As rare as they are I do like those little moments where Schezo can play the straight man for a bit, instead of him always exclusively being an utter assclown.

    All things about Sig that I'm honestly SHOCKED that RINGO of all people has NOT commented upon. As a matter of fact, the only odd things about Sig that Ringo HAS commented upon is his left hand and arm, and his unusual adoration for bugs (the latter of which, if you ask me, is the LEAST weirdest thing about the guy in my opinion). Seriously, I just find it find of...baffling, considering how long Ringo has been in the series and known Sig no less.

    Same here, pal. Same here.

    Speaking of which, I have some Compile-era Puyo comic scans I wanted to post here that appear to have been released during TotM AND Puyo Puyo SUN's releases. REALLY wish I knew what they were saying, but this is in KOREAN, rather than Japanese.

    And for this last scan...that's right. Something I never knew I wanted to see. That's right, courtesy of Witch, it's.....HUMAN CARBUNCLE!!! Honestly, he doesn't look as weird as I predicted...Kind of adorable actually! From the looks of things though, he can still only speak with "Guu!"

    Speaking of which, another thing about Sig, that unlike his other anomalies, seems to have been outright dropped nowadays is how his hair antenna just grows back in an instand whenever it falls off, he actually gives you one in Fever 2 as his summon item and his losing sprite in Fever 2-PP7 shows several antennas just fall off his head like that, I always wondered what was up with that.

    Ringo as she brings it to it's logical extreme.


    Huh, doesn't look as weird as it could have indeed.

    Oh, wow! Those were his hair antennae?? Seriously, I've always wondered what that stuff falling off his head in his losing animations were. I always thought it might be his hair, but then I thought that no one's hair comes off THAT easily. This being said, knowing Sig, I can't say I'd be all that surprised if this was to be some kind of reference to...SOME sort of bug species which loses some sort of appendage and then it regrows.

    Oh, speaking of Sig, I got something for you...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Not even going to lie...I actually want to see this in SOME sort of recent Puyo media one day. Possibly Quest, if anything.

    BTW, I have a question for you. Have you noticed that Ringo mentions just about every Fever-era character by name in PPT, but she doesn't mention ANYONE from the Madou-era (with the sole exception of Satan/Dark Prince) by name? I know this is kind of nitpicky, but I was wondering if you noticed it. Do you think Arle hasn't gotten her well acquainted with anyone there except for Satan for some reason or another?

    Regardless what it's based off I do like those little touches to emphasize that Sig isn't quite ''normal'' so to speak.

    Heh, how bout that, the first three are from my Pinterest account, do you happen to be on that site as well? Either way I appreciate thoughtfullness to show me.

    That's mostly due to script changes from japanese to english, Ringo reffering to many characters in analytical ways moreso then by their actual names is her stick, but it's a bit downplayed in the localization and some scenes are essentially rewritten.

    The biggest example I can think of is in Chapter 4, during the scene after the Amitie VS Raffina match, in the english version she asks Sig to watch over the exhausted Amitie, where as in the japanese original she just tells the group to move forwards, never even acknowledging Sig's presence and small script changes like that persist over the entire game (for the better if you ask me), it just so happened that they ended up creating the oddity that you brought up by accident or at least I don't think they were intending to imply anything.

    Oh, same here. That's one of the things that make Sig pretty endearing in my opinion.

    Hey, don't mention it. It's nothing.

    Oh, really? Well...knowing Ringo, I suppose that makes sense. Still, I just feel like it would have been more...."fair" for Ringo to mention them by name like she did the majority of the Fever-era cast, so we can at least get confirmation that she's at least somewhat acquainted with the Madou-era cast. Her conversations with them outside of Satan made it seem like (at least, to ME) Ringo doesn't seem to know them all that well. I mean, she DOES show us that she's somewhat aware of just who exactly is and her personality, but that aside, she doesn't seem all that aware of who Suketoudara and Draco are. Again, I'm sure I'm just being nitpicky here, and I'm looking at something that isn't there, but still...

    BTW, another question if you don't mind. Basically, do you think characters like Billy Burn and the Water Spirit/Water Elemental will appear in a future Puyo game? I was reading that ongoing Madou fic that JelliPuddi has been writing, and the Water Elemental (who J.P. named Marée for the sake of the story) being in the fic reminded me that she (and Billy) appeared in the Nazo Puyo games, and I remembered that you and a couple others explained to me about how the rights for Compile-era Puyo characters worked.

    From there, I remembered how Demon Servant only appeared in Super Nazo Puyo 3: Rulue no Roux, and possibly because of that, he got to be added to Quest in a few years' time.

    To be fair it's not like Ringo has really had THAT much to do with any Madou/Fever characters apart from Arle, Amitie, Satan or Suketoudara (someone she really should know better) and Chronicle even highlights it quite well with Sig, where you can see how both Amitie and Arle treat him very similary like an old friend and are clearly very familiar with him, while Ringo barely talks to him and seems to barely know him, so her not even reffering to many of these characters by name makes sense, since she really has no known reason to know them to any notable extend.

    I can really only say the same thing as I did for whether or not Incubus or Succubus will make it into a mainline game again: who knows? They could easily put them into Quest, Jan and Demon Servant making it into the game even officially confirms they own Nazo Puyo, but that means nothing if SEGA has no interest to do anything with them.
