Today we say a "sayonara!" to one of the last of the great manga artists to come out of the turbulent postwar era. Shigeru Mizuki lost his arm during the Pacific side of WWII and developed a strong pacifist streak due to the hardships experienced there. He struggled in devastated postwar Japan until he made his break as a manga artist. He gained great fame for his creation: Gegege no Kitaro, a comedy/adventure comic about a ghostly child. His beautiful background art and simple character designs charmed generations of Japanese readers and tv viewers, and Kitaro has spawned many series' and several live action movies.

In the years after creating the equivalent of Japan's Charlie Brown, he created several autobiographical manga about his time in the Japanese military in WWII and the critical look at Japan's 20th century history.

Onwards towards our Noble Deaths told the story of his experiences in Papua New Guinea, and earned him an Eisner award. There is a sample of his historical work here http://www.japanfocu...05/article.html

What is the status of:
- Vending cap update
- WL's chain lightning bug fix (now that I play WL, it really is kinda annoying)

 

I asked specifically about these during a recent meeting with our overseas contacts at Gravity HQ and we are waiting from a response from the Devs. 


And is it possible to allow players to re-enter instances like OGH, Faceworm and the likes? My friends and I have multiple times been disconnected inside and it is extremely frustrating that we could not reenter.

 

We're working to improve stability on instances as well as looking at alternative ways to allow people to continue an instance that they were disconnected from.

1. How bout you give us a sign that you're still checking this thread? Some of those bots you guys "investigated" are 175 already.

 

I am asking the GM Team to get some more attention paid to that thread, with reports on numbers of bots banned. 

 

2. How bout you guys do something about this? By allowing them to exist and claiming that you're looking into it when you're really not the GM team looks like a big joke that doesn't deserve to manage the game. I mean come on, this is just pathetic.

 

That was unfortunately a fail. Going to have to improve GM training regarding this case, especially since it's related directly to the fansclub hack/scam

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!~ I really appreciate the work of those who got Rebel/Rebellion onto Sakray, so thank you!

  • How was your Thanksgiving?

Quite good! Had Chinese-American friends visiting so we had a nice hybrid East/West Thanksgiving dinner. 

  • How is the work going on the Rebellion update?

We should be on track for implementation this week or the next for Rebellion based on our and the community's testing. 

  • What are some of your thoughts on the current WoE Situation on Renewal?

Still looking at our options and reading that feedback thread to get a proposal together. 

  • What can we look forward to seeing in coming month of December?

Working on getting some fun Event WoEs prepared for the later part of the month, as well as the Rebellion leveling race event. 

 

Thank you for your time and enjoy your day~

bio 4: check the exp you get with lvl 173. anyway bio4 is no place to grind solo. it takes (for several classes) hours and hours to get a pty.

bio 3: bio4 but even worse

NCT: only place to grind so improve it with BB

instances: very limited. not solo possible for many ppl without very good equip

MVPs: perfect example what i dont see as grinding thx for mentioning...

If you're 170s and can't solo some instances because you don't have decent equips then it's you that needs to be fixed (of course this doesn't relate to all classes). And NCT is fantastic EXP when soloing with BMx3, I know many people who got to 175 without ever doing Bio4 or complaining about not having a BB there. And MVPing is great EXP what are you talking about.

1. So not every class can solo instances. that is what i am talkig about...

2. i know NCT is good exp. i do NOT complain there is no BB. i suggest to add it for a sort time instead of giving everyone x50000 exp all the time.

3. MVP are great EXP. so I can do ET tower once a week or do summoner. everything else is a waste of time. waiting for a camped mvp and let it be killed by other? nope i stay in NCT thx

 

and please dont blame ppl for not having equip worth several b. not everyone uses RL money or plays iro for years, thx

I don't blame anyone for not having billions worth in gears, I haven't spent money on this game for a while now but my gears are still good enough for many instances. And btw, I've been hunting map MVPs and have gotten fantastic EXP from them.

RIP Kitaro. I love the old one and the remake, although I only watch it whenever I could. It's actually the theme song that I like.

Regarding BB and alternative leveling route, what I don't like about MvPing is the amount of comps. As for why I like to have BB, just for the sake of counting. Right now I limit my grinding time using VIP buff/BMX, when they end, I take a break. But most of the time I end up telling myself 'just a few more percent'. Then yesterday, I fell asleep on most of my classes after a full weekend of mindless grinds. *rolls on the bed again*

Oda, when will you officially have more time available for the project? We got loads of questions that need some answers and we are nearing the finish line for our first batches.

 

After today's maintenance I will have more time. Right now, we're focused on the Rebel items + descriptions part of the update. I will respond as much as I can.

 

Awesome, will make sure everything is ready so long as you can answer the Rebellion requests!
