The blog is updated every Monday and Thursday by the way.
This new post is a (sliiiiiiiightly
) fictionalized account by director Yamazaki of how he came up with the main theme of AA6. AA5's theme was "the destruction of the court", and they needed to go with a theme that had even more impact for the sequel. But what could surpass AA5's theme? The birth of the court? The evolution of the court? The court in flames? An ancient court? A court beneath the sea? A court in outer space? Obviously, none of these themes were good. He needed a better, catchier keyword.
And as Yamazaki was desperately trying to come up with something, by came producer Eshiro.
Eshiro: Still got no theme, eh? Lemme see what ya have. Ha, what kind of crap is this?!
Yamazaki: I'm terribly sorry. I'm doing my best.
Eshiro: Ah, I guess this is beyond yer 'talents'. Of course, I never expected much of ya. Ya gonna quit? I've got more than enough replacements for ya (grin
Cornered by this heartless dictator, Yamazaki thought: I'm not going to take this anymore. I'll ******** you! Time for a revolution!
And so, AA6's theme became "The revolution of the court" (in reality, they just thought about the theme a lot). At the meeting where Yamazaki announced this was the games theme, his team members asked him what he meant with the theme.
Yamazaki: Still haven't thought about that.
'Talentless hack! We'll revolutionize your face!' they said as they jumped on Yamazaki and worked his face.... (in reality, they just talked about it a lot).
Yamazaki mentions that to him, the theme meant 'the suppressed weak defeat the strong'. So in that sense, a revolution is a grand Turnabout. Having come to this point, they needed a 'confrontation' that would embody this theme. At the start of the project, things were still vague, so that led to this piece of concept art.
"OUR REVOLUTION WILL START NOW"
With the help of the team, they eventually came up with Kurain and the story with two protagonists.
Next entry will be written by planner Daigo.
