how about a melty blood-like gameplay with fate series characters? that would be nice.

i'm hoping for an exact date for this to hit the arcades. There's a chance that I might end up in Japan next year. (hopefully)
There is Fate/Sword Dance if you wan't a 2D F/SN fighting game but it is no where near as polished as Melty Blood.

Going by size, it seems to be shaped more like a cross between a cello and a double bass.

Riesbyfe looks really cool. I can't want to see what she is like.

So, if anyone's been keeping up with Actress Again (I know I sure haven't :'() they'd have found the preview on the new styles.
What's really intriguing me is the artwork used when introducing the character/style. Does anyone know if it's public yet, or if it's a SEGA thing?

From what I know from word of mouth they do have the Actress Again in the Japanese arcades now and that's about it. Although, I'm not sure if they are going to place this game on the PS2/3 or the PC anytime soon unfortunately though.

Most recent video (as far as I know) of MB:AA
It was released in september 12. Is it just me or the game seems.... slower...? Also... what's up with Ciel throwing the keys diagonally?

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

Gameplay does look a lot slower in that video, but that might be because of the certain Modes that the players chose to play with. (Hopefully)

Also, lots of moveset changes for characters

Other then the change of a few movesets it seems they kind of DBZ'ed the Magic Circut bar now. It may make the game easier. Since this match was probablly recorded on the Arcade version that might be the reason why the game was rather slower then usual.

Also, is it just me or did the voices change ever so slightly in this version now?

sadly, some if not all of the voice actors have been changed in Actress Again

I think abscess was referring to Ciel's diagonal keys from the ground, not the air

May it's because the players suck, but it looks much worse than Act Cadenza right now...

What's the deal with roa's lightning spam?
I thought Tohno's body had no magic circuits?!? :?

Also: EW at what they did to the gameplay. Not only is there a carbon copy of DBZ's special gauge, but it looks like they've carbon copied street fighters gaurd gauge.

Isn't this ROA Roa, not SHIKI Roa?

It's still the same body.
Even in near side, when he was up against marble phantasm, did you see anything resembling magic?

In the manga he does magic (although I don't know how canon is that)
"I am the spider that set this web.

Judging by the fact that Shiki still killed Arc in broad daylight in the park, I'd say not much.
(I'd actually forgotten that scene :) )

what I meant was I thought they put Roa in the game in his own body, but I geuss that's not very likely anyway
