    Gacha Studio is a great game, and the second best Lunime game in my opinion. The wide selection of hairstyles, eyes, poses, and clothes provides an endless number of possibilities for character creation. Players can create comic scenes in the Studio mode and battle against iconic Lunime characters in Arena mode. Of course, there is the classic Gacha mode, featured in every new Lunime game (except Arcade). I especially enjoy the arena and its unique battle mechanics.

    Pets are featured in the gacha. Animals and characters from past Lunime games as well as works by Purorange and the pet contest winners are featured here. Pets can accompany characters in Studio and Arena. Another gacha feature is the showcase, where you can show off your character as if you had gacha'd them in Anime Gacha.

    This is the first new Lunime game to be playable in landscape orientation. It is relatively small, taking up only about 90 megabytes. (I think it's megabites lol)

    There are a few things missing from this game. One is Gacha Salt. He is an iconic character from Gacha World and he deserves to be added into this game for sure. Another thing that would make it better is the ability to move characters along the y-axis (up and down). Finally, there should be a fourth colour to each hat and clothing item.

    I rated this a 2 star out of 5 on Google Play. Why? Because I helped with Beta testing and didn't get credited on the beta testing credits. All saltiness aside, if I were to rate fairly, I would give it a solid 9/10.

    I agree on everything here. My only nitpick is how f2p players like me are limited in the amount of characters they can make, Additional eyes, mouths etc. I could see that but the character slots feels like too much of an essential to limit. Another nickpick is the availability of 6 stars/ 6 star tickets. You need the 6 star pets to get anywhere past lvl 30 in the arena as f2p but it's extremely hard to get. Love Live's URs have the same rate and it's possible to do 5 consecutive pulls and get a UR. Here, unless I'm really unlucky, which I'm not, not so much. Implementing a system like Fire Emblem Heroes where the chances go up each consecutive pull would be fair balance.

    TL;DR: f2p players have a bit of a disadvantage, a step down from games like Gacha World

    There was a post in the gacha studio facebook group for all the beta testers that wanted their name to be credited before the initial release of ver.0.9 in the google playstore. You must have missed that.

    If you do 10x pulls on 5☆ tickets, there's a chance that 6☆ pets can be pulled. 6☆ pets can also be pulled from the gem gacha. Honestly, the game runs on a very similar premise as gacha world. It should be possible to collect all 6☆ pets with enough grinding. And there might be monthly 6☆ ticket gift boxes if the game gets the same update frequency as gacha world so don't lose hope.

    Game balancing will also come later so it's too early for free-players to despair

    Can't we claims and collect gems in the Level Up Pack while you're connected to the internet? Have more outifts and weapons for the next update, and fix the bug where I went to the Arena of Auto!
