11/15 King Blog Entry
Is 2 or 5 Stronger?
I wrote about my friendâ€™s wedding ceremony in the last entry. I received baked cheese cake as a souvenir. The cheese cake had been under a frozen state for a while. Slicing it into pieces with a warm knife, I partook in a small portion after breakfast.
Hello all, sweets-loving King here.
Since it was morning, I only ate a little and looked forward to more scrumptiousness after work. It was very tasty.
With that pretense as the focus, letâ€™s get into the main driving force of Suikoden V. In the Suikoden series, thereâ€™s a character who eats three cheesecakes in one go. As for me, I had 0.5.
Todayâ€™s talk is about George Prime. He was my third choice character in last week's blog. Being my top third character doesnâ€™t necessarily mean I like or hate him. It just means Iâ€™m putting the most time and effort contemplating on ideas for the character, so please donâ€™t misunderstand.
Anyhow, since heâ€™s a character many fans are zealously looking forward to; in the development staff, we call him a â€œsuper memberâ€ and prudently think of many ideas.
Queenâ€™s Knights a conventional [?] atop their head, but George, whoâ€™s been at Falena for only a few days, has short hair and canâ€™t tie it. (The main guyâ€™s argument is more persuasive, butâ€¦)
Originally, I designed his unique eye patch to express his role as a Queenâ€™s Knight. But there are many in the Suikoden series with eye patches, so I wanted a design inferior to none, a unique design not resembling anyone else.
Georgeâ€™s blade, meant for battou-jutsu, is likely a custom blade. The black and yellow representing heaven and earth on the Queenâ€™s Knight outfit is also relatively simple. Although His chest is a bit wornâ€¦
Georgeâ€™s fighting style stems from his nickname â€œGeorge For Whom the Second Sword Stroke is Unnecessary," so he uses battou-jutsu.
Battou-jutsu is a sword style where the sword is kept in itâ€™s sheath until the opponent attacks with a drawn sword, then the sword is drawn instantly for victory. Iâ€™ve been researching the awesome-looking battou-jutsu and am making it look much more like the real thing than it did in Suikoden 2. You can tell from the pose that George is concentrating his entire bodyâ€™s nerves to draw his blade at an instantâ€™s notice. He keeps the pose above when getting ready to draw his sword.
The problem is Georgeâ€™s Suikoden 2 stance was simply standing stillâ€¦there are many people in modern times researching how to draw the blade instantly from a normal standing stanceâ€¦so just in the case of those experts with a clear and serene mind, Suikoden 2â€™s Geroge sure is strong, eh! If not, itâ€™d sure be strange, I persuaded myself.
Battou-jutsu. George. Truly the ultimate martial art!
A new skill â€œpoint above navelâ€ that raises the critical rate, he fits in nicely as a Suikoden V character.
George keeps up the momentum stagnating! New! Deep! Awesome! With this as the Georgeâ€™s theme, I worked hard in clearing many obstacles. Look forward to his greatness in the game.
That may not be enough info, but I took a break from work to write this, so Iâ€™d better stop here.
Todayâ€™s final message,
Iâ€™ve been reading everyoneâ€™s comments and mail. Of course, the rest of the staff is also watching these comments. Honestly, Iâ€™d like to represent everyone and respond to the comments, but Iâ€™m still in the midst of finishing up Suikoden V here, so please understand.
The fan requests are numerous. Iâ€™d also like to respond to the the inside story about the staff, guests, and making of characters. My time is coming to an end here, so forgive me! As an apology, I talked about Georg today. (The preface about cheesecake is a true story though.)
Iâ€™ve read all the post card messages. The incredibly enthusiastic support everyone has been showing has made me shed many tears, so much so that Iâ€™ve gained renewed determination to do my best!
-Congratulations if itâ€™s your birthday today. Iâ€™d like to celebrate, but how about buying Suikoden V?
-Thanks for pointing out the misprint. The meaning of the comment has become indecipherable now, so we canâ€™t change the main text.
-Although Suikoden V is rated CERO12(for ages 12 or greater), I talked about alcohol anyway. That was quite unappropriate on my part! The private matter is indeed interesting though.
- Those I met at TGS, letâ€™s meet again sometime.
- Overseas fans, thank you from far away.
Thank you so much everyone! (Whew, it sure has getting hot here!)
Well then, take care. Many thanks today.
P.S. Back to work!
