That was the premise for two or all three of the prior Summer Seasonal Paralogues? They couldn't have come up with something more creative and original?

Taking regular pictures for Ylissean, moving pictures for Nohrian, audio for whatever the last one was called, and now sketches for this one.

A good question would be what form of "illegality" exists in the terms of reproducing one's likeness without consent in the world of Heroes anyway. Annas from the other outrealms can apparently charge Heroes Anna for "encroaching" on their territory, but none of that assumes they got okay from the Heroes themselves. Well, I'm not a history or legal expert so I could be wrong, but isn't the concept of reproducing someone's likeness for profit without asking them a relatively newish concept?

All Google helped me find here was whether or not doing it today is illegal. Yes, indeed it is, but I don't find it likely it would be more illegal thanks to the swimsuits- not even for Linde, for whom it may or may not have been coerced.

You misunderstand. I'm going to be FtP from beginning to end, and that is precisely why I'm waiting for Mr. Right Banner. When my Orb supply is finite, I shouldn't waste it on characters I'm not particularly drawn towards.

And? It’s perfectly possible and plausible to be F2P from beginning to end. Being F2P and waiting for Mr Right Banner don’t contradict each other.

Hmm, I see.

Meh, I don't think they will pull off CYL this month.

Compared to the other "Heroes with" banners these one aren't exactly subtle.
Distant Defense - Celica, Micaiah, Rhajat
Fighter skills - Effie, Hardin, Grima
Plus the "New Power" banner has most likely Katarina, Nephenee and Titania on it. That's Swift Sparrow, Atk Ploy and Wrath.

These are some mighty fine banners here. Anyone else smelling the the faint scent of bait? I'm almost convinced that CYL is going to be in September after the wallets are dried up. The August Special banner is probably something akin to "Performing Arts".

The thing is, I don't want to spend my Orbs right now because having an increased chance of getting somebody I don't want, a Summer character. So unless a New Powers or Heroes with X consists of characters I all care for, I'm stuck with just the minimal base crew, plus my Brave Ike and a Vike, a little restrictive.

While it isn't so exciting, I could in fact spring for a New Powers. But of the current one, while the Titan and Queen of the Fairies is good, I've no bond to Katarina thanks to IS not giving us NM and me not having a computer able to do emulation, and Nephenee, well she isn't a bad character, but I'm not all into her like some really are- it's a 1.5/3 for the NP banner for me. The critical minimum of liking of 2/3 has not been hit, ergo I'm not on the pull for it, just as I wasn't for the last Blazing banner, my liking for Legault was effectively countered by a Nino alt (I'd use her base self, but not the alt) and Karla, who clearly got in for the wrong reason of being a sword lady which sells Orbs to others. Not to call Karla bad, but she is a bit dull after reading her supports I will say.

And socialism is about the same age as recreational swimsuits, and yet Anna had to this to say at the end of her Tiki A Support in Awakening:

Different universes have different timelines. I'm sure a socialist regime somewhere emerged in the 2000 years between Akaneia and Ylisse. And recreational swimsuits.

You literally get one free pull from every banner that is released. Free pull. As in "doesn't cost any orbs".

Honestly, I find the new Anna absolutely hilarious. I find old Anna honestly a little boring.

And a free pull every single banner. Literally free.

New heroes smell like a Conquest themed banner due to Fallen Takumi rerun and the BHB

i hope not though, for both diversity and for my non-existent orb stash

also the gap in free orbs in the calendar looks depressing

I found a use for my other regular Ike gathering dust in my barracks:

My next 20k will give Martha Linus’ Brazen Atk/Spd, and then I might resume merging her up.

They still have to add a red tome flier to the regular pool like they did with blue and green. If the next banner is indeed Conquest themed (and looking at that BHB), my personal prediction would be Dark Flier Leo, because he is way too popular to only get one alt over the course of this game.

Leo Emblem will be like Tharja Emblem with 3 red tomes haha

i still think Aversa makes the most sense as a regular red tome flier. Maybe GHB, maybe summonable.

if it has to be Leo i prefer Malig Knight Leo. Magical wyverns are awesome and it fits with his relation to Camilla. Or they’d go the MK Elise route.

but yea as much as too much alts can get annoying, Leo needs a good version of himself.

Leo already has a good version of himself. It's just really expensive to make. (Raudhrowl + Close Counter)

Gamepedia is tiering that build on par with Sanaki and Bride Tharja, even without access to cavalry buffs.

If Takumi can deal with all colourless, Leo can deal with three red tomes. If it does come to full Leo Emblem at some point, he is more than welcome to pick up a sword. :P 

Aversa does make sense for a flier, but she is more obscure by Fateswakening standards anyway. I could see them doing it for the waifu crowd, but Leo is one of the safer choices for a male banner option. What with starring in his very own shoujo manga and all. It's a toss up for what will happen though.

I could see that happen, as a counter point to the Hoshidan Kinshis, but the male malig knight is probably not aesthetic enough for a bishonen like him. That's the asset Intsys is selling both him and Takumi on, so they'd probably rather feather him up for the occasion. Elise would be a nice alternative, although I see her more as the second flying healer after the inevitable Kinshi!Sakura.

His normal form is workable enough I suppose, although I personally don't see the hype. (which might just be because my own has terrible IVs and I'd never sacrifice a Takumi to him).

Doubtful. BHBs rarely ever have any connection to concurrent banners and the GHB re-runs have fixed order dependent on the order they ran so Fallen Takumi would be this month regardless of whom was on the banner.

@TybrosionI feel stupid now for forgetting that foes have bonus units on defense teams

@JSND Alter Dragon Boner I'm not saying she's bad. Before I realized she was a bonus unit, I was perplexed at the amount of Camilla's I encountered

If this really is a Fates banner, I'm guessing it'll be Conquest themed. Garon as the GHB followed by fallen Takumi. As for the banner: Iceblade or a new Brynhildr Leo, Charlotte, Silas

@Azure Sen Fates banner and Hinoka BHB. Legendary Hector and Hector BHB

I don't have the results permanently engraved in my mind. I just didn't remember her being that impressive and having that large a fanbase.

Hinoka's was a revival and the Hector and Matthew BHB didn't start until after the Leg Banner had passed.

Because the top scores of CYL2 were units the fanbase were pressuring IS to finally add the game?

This wasn’t the point. Nanima was talking about actual popularity, not how Intsys perceives said popularity.
