ToZ Anime TV Special New PV

Bandai Namco has uploaded another trailer for the Tales of Zestiria anime special airing later this month. (It starts out showing scenes for other Tales games for the uh...20th anniversary even though the series just turned 19 a few days ago because for some reason we gotta celebrate early this time)

ToZ Scan-Blue Exorcist, Tales, Swimsuit Costumes

An article showing off some costume DLC for Tales of Zestiria has arisen.
First off are the costumes of the past Tales characters:

Finally there are some for Ao no Exorcist (or Blue Exorcist, whichever).

Sorey=Rin Okumura
Mikleo=Yukio Okumura
Edna=Shiemi Moriyama
Lailah=Shura Kirigakure

The scans here don't include them, but the same article apparently announced some Basara attachments. Will try to track down pics of those. In the meantime, here's a new screenshot of Rose:

So how many costumes does Zaveid have now without being confirmed as playable yet? Hahahahaha

imas Character Covers ToL Song

So apparently I missed a little something here and it's one of those rare occurrences a non-Tales category post makes its way here. The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls character Karen Hojo (CV: Mai Fuchigami) did a cover of the song "Hotarubi" from Tales of Legendia on a CD released today.
A short preview of the song was uploaded to YouTube earlier this month.

The CD is titled "THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER Cool jewelries! 002," in case any of you guys feel like looking into that.

This is the last set of DLC costumes for Tales of Hearts R, so I'll just cut to the chase. School costumes are up this time.

Onward to Zestiria

ToAsteria Theme Song (Short Ver)

So apparently the short version of Eternally (Tales of Asteria's new theme song) has been on CREAM's YouTube channel for several days now.
I would've gotten this up sooner if I had noticed the link on the trailer but I turned the annotations off so...oops? I also kinda forgot that I normally post official videos like these for the theme songs. Double oops.

I'm gonna play it safe and warn that there are parts with somewhat quickly flashing colors/lights and while they don't bother me, I can see how someone sensitive to it might have some issues.
