[Android] Magical Days The Brats' Parade

Magic Day!
Aka Majide lol

Brought to you by Cybird! Probably more known for their Ikemen series, but I only managed to play more of Sanrio Danshi Watashi Koi wo Shirimashita (See my post here)!

It's another app based on character design beautifully designed by Sarachi Yomi! I'm slightly taken by surprised that it wasn't released under Hunex, though I suppose only Arcana Famiglia is licensed to them.

Regardless, I'm always excited to see more of Sarachi Sensei's works in games, not to mention the game features over 30 partially voiced 3D Mini characters!

Prologue
In the world where magic users are deem as hero and highly praised for works they've done with disasters and threats from the Vipor. One day you who is a normal citizen, received the invitation to attend Felix Mahou Gakuen - a famous school that is known for the top magic users graduates from - as a scholarship student...

Gameplay
MagicalDaysGameplay.jpg
Line them up! The character cards are split into 4 elements being Fire > Wind > Earth > Water. You could also target specific enemy to attack too, using their weaknesses. But that said, I just went with the flow and tries to maximise the combo.

Reminds me of Yume100 with the characters on the top of the screen with colour element gems, but it's closer to Disney Tsum Tsum or Yokai Watch Puni Puni (See my post here) where everything is more round and rolls everywhere! With the story element crossover with Shironeko Project with the game and story mode intertwine between one another.

MagicalDaysSkillTree.jpg
Skill Tree!

Form your support unit with characters with various personality and fight against the enemies! You could level up the character by using the character card in battles, or simply pay to level them up. The skill tree was interesting! Skills could be upgraded with the gems pieces collected. I didn't like how they make the scenario as one of the still though... they should just give it to us as bonus (Am I asking for too much lol)!

Tips
* Add me to get more Friend points! User ID: jujbmof
* Put your best character card on! I notice people only add back players with rarer and higher level cards!
* Unlock battle skills for the skill tree! This will kill off the characters faster!
* Try to include more of the rarer star rating cards into the group (Be mindful of the cost over, so level up or progress through the story sooner to increase the capacity to use them). That said, you don't have to fill up all the space. I normally go with all the different types, follow by the rarity shuffle (Higher the better).
* Unfortunately in this game you can't level up character cards via merging other cards. You could however sell the lower rank cards for money to level up the rarer cards. Though I wouldn't recommend doing this until you could fit all the rarer cards in your unit!

Thoughts
The story presentation reminds me of Arcana Famiglia! Suppose Sarachi Sensei's style suits that type of speech bubbles the most. So I was comfortably playing through the story without feeling the need to learn something too new apart from all the characters' names. lol Though I though the single answer option was abit redundant (Unless they would introduce additional option upon round 1 completion? I highly doubt since it does seems time consuming to complete all the stories). Further, I find it funny you get to decided to attend or not to attend... Though it loops back to attend regardless of your choices (Just force me to attend anyway!). XD

Overall, it feels like a otome game set in Harry Potter world with the different houses, not to mention there's a ghost that loiters around the school too. The other fact that there are different species that exist in the school in the game app description was abit of a give away... I had look up Mizuchi's name gives me some definition of the dragon god etc (Perhaps I'm wrong since I have yet to learn about this character that haven't appear that often yet).

The text box almost covered all his pants to look funny at a glance. lol

Personal favourite are Iori, Ricardo and Mizuchi! Touma was additional mostly due to Kaji (I admit I'm starting to be more seiyuu bias)... Though saying that, I think the seiyuu for Touma and Iori should be swapped around. I was relatively shocked when I hear Tsuda's voice so energetic... and Kaji's voice so deep. Pleasant surprises, but otherwise, I would guess Ricardo is my favourite visually (I do like Michael's face too since he's all prince elite like). XD I'm also secretly taking a liking into Mizuchi... perhaps I do like characters that gives Yandere dangerous vibe. lol

Though there are definitely alot less voices in this one compared to Yume100 (They mostly just give a yell or a sound, not so much a full sentence. Then again, perhaps because I don't have rare enough card to know they do speak full sentence). I also find it less laggy compared to Yume100. XD So it's definitely on my play list due to Sarachi Sensei's art, but with more story focus!

Re: Maria

Oh! It's in the party setup. The first position in your party will be denoted with a L symbol to indicate it's the leader and that the leader skill is used during battle. It is also the character card that is shown for support in the default/main party.

No title

thanks!! but I was talking about the card that you share to your friends, the card they can use as support in a battle^^

Re: María

Yeah I find changing character on the main screen wasn't too obvious too. XD

Tap on Collection (Second from the right next to friend on the bottom bar) > Select from the location the character is in (E.g. if They're students they will be in the school) > tap on the character > click on Set to main page on the top right hand corner.

Hope that helps!

No title

Thanks for the review!! Just one question, how do you choose the card for your friends? ^^
