What are your thoughts on the new starlights for sera myu this year?
Hello! I feel like I should preface this by saying my opinion is solely based on that one visual we got last week, so it’s a very limited superficial observation.
Anyway… I’m not really feeling it. The only one who looks like the character is Yaten. i’m happy Riona is coming back, but I don’t know why she poses more like Hawk’s Eye than Taiki there. And Seiya looks so young!! Well, the actress is young, but you know what I mean. I’m a bit sad cos I was really looking forward to seeing Seiya in the new myu. Also, I kinda prefer black Starlights uniform than the metallic navy blue because I think they’re cooler.
If you ask me who my dream Seiya is… since last year I’ve been lowkey hoping it would be Akira (from Disacode). She is also a singer like Seiya. And as fate would have it, Akira seemed to get along pretty well with Shuu and Sayaka during Houston. The dynamic between their Seiya vs Haruka-Michiru would have been amusing to watch.
That being said, when UNV released the first outers visual and Uranep promo video back in 2015, I wasn’t really taken by Shuu Uranus either. Same with Chihiro Tiger’s Eye last year. And I couldn’t have been more wrong cos now I’m such a big fangirlTM of them both. The new myu hasn’t disappointed me once with their casting so far, so I’m cautiously optimistic and hopeful.
I know this is full of whining but I’m really looking forward to LMF!
