Fist of the North Star Collab Review and Analysis

Introduction

“In the midst of the post-apocalyptic wasteland, Kenshiro struggles to keep moving forward: to seek revenge against the man that betrayed him, and to find his lost love, Yuria. Fortunately for him, he encounters allies: strong warriors and friends in the form of Toki, Rin, and Fudo! His epic unfolds by discovering the true nature of those that face him–by battling with his fists!” – GungHo North America

I am not familiar with this Anime and am left wondering why the protagonist is less rare than his long lost love. Regardless, the Fist of the North Star (FotNS) Collab as a very hand-on feel with all these flying fists. Hopefully, you will not require a fist-full of magic stones to acquire all the cards you desire!

PAD Cross Review and Analysis

Introduction

PAD Cross has finally arrived in North America to celebrate the Puzzle and Dragons Anime that can be found somewhere on the internet. Hopefully people are not too Cross about the delay in gaining these new evolutions. Thankfully, unlike other Collabs, PAD Cross does not involve an extra REM to roll from. Instead, it provides ultimate evolution options for some existing farmable and regular REM cards. This is fantastic as players do not have to spend additional magic stones and may already own some of the required cards from Godfest rolls. None of these evolutions are mandatory, but give players the option to modify some of their favourite cards.

PAD Island REM Analysis and Review

Introduction & Overview

Let’s go to the beach, each. Let’s go get a wave eh. Poor singing aside, summer is in full swing and GungHo has decided to spoil their fans by releasing one of the most exciting Collab REMs to date. Like the June Bride REM,  the PAD Island REM features a diverse array of monsters that are valuable at both the 8-star level as well as 4-star tier. Their power combined with festively drawn artwork and beach-wear attire is simply Myraculous. The prizes of this REM include Bikini Eschamali Beach Escha, Summyr Beach Myr, Goemon B Goemon, and Navi B Navi. However, nearly every single card in this REM brings something to this beach party and is well worth several rolls, even if just for the silver eggs. Overall, this collab promises to be a Splashing success.

As a side note, they missed the glorious opportunity to have a topless Lifeguard Odin. Antonio could have had a new Halloween costume.

Beach Myr – Worth the 500,000 Monster Points? Review and Analysis

Introduction

GH Boss: “We need to increase revenue, think of an idea!”

GH Peon: “Recolour Myr,  make her prettier, less Lolli, and 500K MP?”

GH Boss: “What a Myraculous idea! 5 magic stone pay raise, go roll yourself a new silver egg!”

Perhaps this played out differently than my imagination, but it is akin to the trend of making an Eschamali in every colour. It has already been well established that Light Myr Miru is one of the top tier leads and is capable of clearing any dungeon Puzzle and Dragons has to offer (you can see my Arena 3 clear/video HERE). 49x ATK may not sound that impressive; however, when paired with a 75% damage reduction shield and the ability to stack row enhances, you are capable of delivering lethal damage while benefiting from 4x HP/RCV when forming a heart cross.

Unfortuantely, Beach Myr Beach Myr is an 8-star Collab roll or 500,000 Monster Points and is a colour swap of the 100% farmable Light Myr. With such a steep price tag for what essentially amounts to something you can acquire through a lot of hard work and dedication, is it really worth the cost? If you wish to read more about Light Myr, feel free to check out my discussion HERE.

  • Damage and shield carry over on a sweep and persist if no preemptive
  • You can touch and hold a heart orb after using Myr’s active to cancel the change the world effect without triggering an enemy’s turn

Sample gameplay

Beach Myr has a unique playstyle and is one of the few leaders to utilize the heart-cross formation to deal damage. Furthermore, the extensive additional time to move orbs allows you to fully set up your board. Light Miru has been heavily utilized by the Japanese player base and Beach Myr is also capable of Myraculous clears.

Ruroni Kenshin Collab REM Analysis and Review

Introduction & Overview

Heart-crosses are now a thing whether you like it or are cross about it. However, GungHo has decided to branch out and start creating leader skills that are reliant on colour-crosses to deal damage. This has led to the highest multipliers in the game; however, can overwhelming damage compensate for a lack of survivability? Furthermore, how powerful are the non-6 star rolls? Outside of the colour cross theme at the top, the lower end monsters offer numerous True Damage options to truly let your button teams shine. To top it off, all the following monsters qualify as assistants for Skill Inheritance due to evolving into a 5-star form.

June Bride REM Analysis and Review

Introduction & Overview

Let the church bells ring, hear the fan boys sing. There may be the background wail of countless wallets crying out in horror, but nothing can dampen our spirits for the June Bride Collab! This festive REM features some of the most loved characters in Puzzle and Dragons all dressed up for their big day to tie the knot. Sporting flowing dresses and dashing suits, this event is sure to please every player. Furthermore, the overarching theme for this June Wedding is Light and if you are looking to brighten up your team, this may be a great place to spend your magic stones. In addition to the great value the rare rolls provide, Light Izanami W Iza is perhaps one of the best 4-stars to ever come out of a Collab REM.
