Hello everyone, to our sixth week of Brave Friday! Last week, I stated that this week’s instalment would be my review of Bravely Default, but I am sorry to say that you will have until next week. While I am certainly confident enough to write about the majority of aspects of the game, in typical JRPG form, despite my play-time that would have completed other games, I have yet to really scratch the surface of Agnés Oblige’s tale. As we all know, a JRPG is like a sandwich – the graphics, design, music and other mechanics are the bread, but the story is the filling in the middle that is the main reason we’re eating the sandwich in the first place. So to quote Satoru Iwata, “Please Understand” – the review is still coming though, so don’t worry!
To make up for that, this week’s Brave Friday is a celebration of two things – the first is the release of Bravely Default and the second is the recent Nintendo 3DS update, that added Miiverse to the handheld. So this week’s Brave Friday will be dedicated to Miiverse posts from Bravely Default fans across the world! I have spent hours digging through the two Miiverse communities (the European Bravely Default and the Japanese Bravely Default: For the Sequel) to compile some of the best:
First up, it seems that Airy is quite a popular people with the talented Miiverse artists!
Like myself, the denizens of Miiverse also think something might be going on between Edea and Ringabel (their chemistry is undeniable!):
There were also quite a few drawings of Edea on her own, which are of note:
And of course, everyone loves Ringabel, so here is some pictures of our mystery man:
Of course though, what kind of fans wouldn’t want to draw image of our central character, the Wind Vestal Agnés Oblige? So here’s a small selection of the vast talent out there on Miiverse:
And of course, to complete the set of four, here’s a gallery for our quiet-villager-turned-hero, Tiz Arrior!
Of course, these five aren’t the only characters in the game – so here’s a selection of some of Bravely Default‘s other cast members! Victor seems to be quite popular with the Japanese fans. Personally, I’m more of a Victoria fan.
The fans in Japan are eagerly anticipating the release of the recently announced Bravely Second, with some even already drawing pictures of the new character Magnolia Arch:
Special mention also has to go how painful it is to be fashionaaabluh. No, not “fashionable”, fashionaaabluh!
And before the other writers come in and drag me away to some intervention retreat, I think I’ll end this here, having just shared over 50 of the very best Bravely Default Miiverse drawings! Do you think you can do better? Well, put your stylus where your mouth is, draw and send them our way via the Operation Brave Tumblr!
Apologies once more on the delay of the review, but it will be up next Friday! If you would like to read previous entries in our Brave Friday series, then here are the links you need:
