December 29th huh? Well that gives me time to get some Christmas money bahaha!

I was thinking of waiting for one to come that I'd really want as well but unfortunately for me, Haruka is on the cover for the first one so I had no choice but to get the limited edition because I MUST have it. Summer casual should be interesting.. does anyone know what volume 4's theme is? That's the one with Takane right?

I heard that there's going to be NINE volumes, is that right?

If so, can you imagine how much money that is...  :-X

Ridiculous.


...does anyone know what volume 4's theme is? That's the one with Takane right?

On PlayAsia they have a few screenshots:





Based on those four, it looks like a Hawaiian vacation or something...  ;D

Well, there's been 9 announced. Who knows what else might happen. Plus, I wouldn't be surprised if every idol got there own cover which, of course, means there will be more than 9.

Ah, Bandai, you make me laugh.

Earlier in their official blog, they said that all volumes of G4U were going to be limited edition.  They were only going to make a limited number of each volume and once it was gone, it was going to be gone.  (They were trying to convince people that they need to pre-order if they want one and also go out and search for the collector's box if they want Volume 1.)

Fast forward a bit and in the newest blog post, they say G4U Volume 2 is going to have a second print run.  So!  If you didn't pre-order Volume 2 and your favorite importer/store is out, just wait until early December when additional copies will hit the market.

Namco Bandai have proven time and time again that you can't trust a word they say.

As long as it's in our favor, and making it more likely that I can complete the collection is definitely something I'll take. ;D

Wowww, a thousand dollars.. It's SO tempting to complete the collection and of course when you don't think about it altogether it's like a 120 bucks a month.. But still, it's quite a bit of money. I'm kinda glad that they're doing a re-run but not at the same time because now I'm going to want to buy volume 2 just so 1 isn't left by itself. :P

Every time I think of G4U I have to try and tell myself to be strong and just hang out for the one (maybe two) that really appeal to me. That being said, I really want them all. :P

I'm trying to hold out as well.. I guess it's good they're doing a re-run actually so that we can see all of the versions that come out the first time around then when the second run is released we can just pick the one we want.

I'm going to have two copies of the PS3 version..... :-\
I agree with DereDereAngel that you can sell the second copy.  It's going to be shrinkwrapped and factory sealed (even after you unwrap the plastic for the limited edition box itself), so that will help you.

I find it a bit strange that executing an action/request centers the camera, but otherwise it's a small gripe.  I see why it's that way, as it's ideal to have the camera centered towards taking a picture.
I have the same gripe.  It should have been a choice in the options menu to disable it, since I might want a specific angle to anticipate a new pose but I'm forced to reset to front-and-center.

Funny thing is, i got the LE edition, but never opened the G4U case yet. when it comes to games, if it has an LE or collector  (Take your pick) it the one i always get no matter what, or else it feels like i never got it. Im getting vol 3 or 4 at some point
You'll open the G4U case eventually, right?  ^^;  Though I guess if you're that type of collector, you'd never want to sell it even if you may never open it to play.


I splurged on the Special Box so I have volume 1 of G4U!.  It's super cute, but I don't know if I'm that addicted to get the rest of the 8 volumes (~$1000 price tag is definitely hefty).  Too bad it's not in Namco's favor to release a final compilation of all 9 games at the very end in one disc.  Also, if they're going to go all out and take our money, I'd like to see a box to hold all 9 volumes of G4U! since they expect us to get all 9 volumes of the anime Blu-ray to fill this first box.  :P

Based on the Play-Asia screenshots, it looks like the beach background from Volume 1 is re-used, but the girls just get to wear Hawaiian-themed stuff.

LOL, I've resorted to selling my possessions before because I felt bad for buying expensive merchandise.
