Nice to see Kud got her own commercial too. Easily my favorite character from the VN.. Hell, she might be my favorite Key character over all. Either her or Kyou.

Kud was adorable as hell. Its just that after playing refrain kyousuke became my most favorite character by far and midorikawas amazing preformance just helped it. For LB i love everyone and if i had to rank em it would be
1) kyousuke
2) masato
3) rin
4) haruka
5) komari
6) kengo
7) kud
8) mio
9) kurugaya
I haven't played the ex routes so i cant say anything about sasami,kanata and saya.

Kud is my least favorite character because I find her constant use of Engrish as more annoying and grating rather than endearing. I think it's just the voice probably, since there are other heavy-Engrish characters that I do enjoy.

That said, I know she has a huge fanbase so I hope she's portrayed well in the upcoming anime, along with the rest of the cast.

The male cast in LB just eclipses the side heroines in terms of awesomeness.

Oh god, that is so annoyingly high pitched. Even for a Japanese voice actress.

You're in the minority here. I find Kud's extreme popularity to be surprising, but I can grasp the reason as to why she is.

I agree, her voice is like a legion of javelins piercing my ears and making them bleed.

Cute, adorable, and moe javelins.

But javelines nonetheless.

I'm glad some new trailers are coming out. I wish we had a bit more information by now but what we've seen looks pretty good. Smile

Also KUD IS NOT RUSSIAN. I seem to remember the original game making a point of not mentioning Russia. In later works it was established that she is from a fictional ex-soviet island nation Tebua. (If anything she is Kiribati)

*ahem* I'll get back to my translation work now..

Yes, Kud's name actually taken from Laika's real name. It has a meaning behind the name, you know. She also has two companion dogs named Strelka and Belka. (opps, I should refrain myself for spoiler)

The wikipedia article said that she is half quarter Japanese and three quarter Russian (her grandma is Japanese, her grandpa is Russian born). But I know that her home country is fictional (Tebwa, Tevua, or Tebua) and from the information I gathered, that fictional country was formerly part of Russia. So I think it is correct to say that she is at least a quarter Russian from her grandpa.

This is another one of those shows where the character designs make males and females look like different species. I find that very distracting.

I'll be skipping this one probably.
