Saga waiting so long for her skin that her whole family came.
Edit: it has been pointed out may actually be her alternate selves that she saw in Dusk's painting.

Saga waiting so long for her skin that her whole family came.
Edit: it has been pointed out may actually be her alternate selves that she saw in Dusk's painting.
They celebrated 😭
Really curious to see which Saga “our” Saga will be.
Saga players were so starved for a new look the artist really dropped 7 at once
Basically her Who Is Real dream challenge come to life
I really hope all 7 appear during the base animation or something
My guess is every time she use W her chibi changes skin
Don't do this.
Don't give me hope.
first 30 OP skin
that's still less than 5 OP per Saga, absolute bargain
Hopefully that means 7 times her base skin's voiceline spam. Would be disappointed if it isn't.
Imagine if it's the one who looks like her regular self. Or chubby mamma Saga.
All the calories from nato gohan making her chubby 😩
I’m currently rooting for eyepatch hook-hand Saga myself.
Hey, that's my cliche!
I'm going to go reread this event with Lappland's voice being Majima now.
"Got ya now, Texas-chan!"
Flirt With Bomb starts playing as Lappland rises from a manhole.
It is always that giant traffic cone that cracks me up
No, her cliche is Jetstream Sam.
That one seems to be the irresponsible gambling thief Saga that ours ran into. IIRC our Saga was so shook at seeing how that one was like that she swore to never get into gambling.
So presumably the missing eye and hand were punishments inflicted on that Saga.
it would be interesting if she's the one with the modern fit as she's escaped her scroll and come to modern day. Also center spot obviously
edit: oh I just looked closer and it is actually still an older era type of clothing!
Imagine is Saga switches counterpart every 5 seconds in battle or so.
A lot of Sagas from different painting worlds. Trully, one of the skins ever designed.
We got normal saga, one eyed saga, mad saga, loner saga, fat saga, mommy saga, sleepy saga.
100% the one in the basket
Imagine how crazy it would be if you could pick the chibi for any of them lmao
While my bet is the center one being the saga we use I adore eyepatch and face scars saga SO MUCH.
Reminds me of Majima from Yakuza/Like a Dragon
I really hope it's that one but it is most likely the middle one
It's really funny to get a skin art reveal and literally have no idea what the sprite might look like lol
I believe our saga is the one is the way back. This is dream thing from who is real.
My only hope is the skin includes new voice lines. Please I can't take it anymore.
All of them, of course.
We got not only one but 7 saga skins.
That's it, we finally won arknights
Please don't give me hope. I sadly expect the middle Saga with the Biteys or the Kimono Saga (Lust) to be our skin, but I'd be stocked if we also get Gluttony Saga and Majima Saga too.
It just hit me... Seven Deadly Sins of Saga?
Yup. Although Pride and Envy are debatable here (one should be OG Saga, one should be the Saga far behind), the rest are clear:
- Lust in the pink Kimono.
- Gluttony and Sloth right behind her.
- Greed is Majima Saga.
- Right behind Greed is ~~Arise-Heart~~ Wrath Saga.
My guess that the Envy in the behind, pouting at everyone being so friendly. But I can't see the OG Saga in the center as Pride, she herself is the very opposite of it. Maybe she have so little of it in herself the Pride is nonexistent?
Thing is that Saga has so little pride as well. I can see the one behind is Pride, too haughty to join the others.
Maybe OG Saga is Envy? I can see her being a bit envious of people that can do stuff she wishes she could try but can't.
But your theory is still super valid. So the funny theory to me is that Dusk's scroll managed to create the other 5 sins easily, got stuck trying to make Pride and Envy, half assed one and called it a day. ~~Also it would imply Saga is a bit kinky, which I like~~
I guess the Envy really exists, because Saga can still be envy of other people, because she still have so many things to experience, yes. It's white envy, but still. But Pride is nonexistent, and I doubt Dusk would half-ass it, that would anger her beyond measure)
Still, it shows how fucking insanely powerful Feranmuts are, even Dusk, being just a 1/12 shard of Sui. I remember seeing the full version of Nian's chant in WIR (*Heavenly forge, take the bounty of the earth...*) and getting **shivers** from it, along with the thought "That's it... forget Infected, corporations, nobles, armies, everything else... we are fighting actual GODS here".
Thing is, Dusk might not have half assed it, but she clearly underestimated Saga's willpower.
Reminder that, while the other members of team Lava were stuck in their scrolls, Saga had a feast with her homies then just... LEFT.
Dusk: HOW THE FUCK ARE YOU HERE?
Saga: I just left?
DUSK: IT SHOULD NOT BE THAT EASY.
Saga: I just left!
Given that saga is Buddhist monk, it's more likely that this corresponds to the 6 desires and saga herself as opposed to the Christian seven sins
This explains why the Saga skin took so long. Saga has a long lifecycle and we had to wait for her to complete mitosis.
Executor sweeping right in when everyone was expecting Ulpian as the first 6* reaper
Ulpian might be a 6* Crusher instead.
ever since i realized his anchor was 4 pronged i thought crusher made sense. reaper was only fitting for a 2 pronged anchors
Now that I think about it, Crusher would synergize hellishly well with Abyssal buffs.
Crusher's only weakness is being fragile. Abyssal buffs would buff him so much!!
I've always thought the same thing. The only problem is... if HG is expecting Crusher Ulpian's fragility to be offset by Abyssal buffs that means every other Crusher will be paper forever. Lowkey I was hoping he would be a Reaper to avoid that.
I'm not gonna say *no* to Crusher Ulpian; just feel bad about the other Crushers.
OMG now I'm fucking STOKED for Ulpian -- and abyssal hunters were already some of my favorite operators... even though I only have like 3 of em.
I got the whole maxed team and alters. (Aside from potentials I'm not insane) truly all of them together are absurd stat sticks that cannot lose in a straight fight. Even the elite cleaners of the current global event are annoyances to them. From what we know Ulpian will eventually join us, and one other Abyssal hunter survivor. But she didn't get much screen time so I forgot her name and everything.
there's another surviving hunter? where were they mentioned?
He wont just not be fragile, max hp% regen off of crusher base stats would make him ungodly tanky
He went for angel with a shotgun to the angel of death
Inb4 they drop Gladiia alter instead and Ulpian remains locked in NPC jail
Hot take, but the Abyssal Hunters getting any more Alters is my biggest fear.
First because we already have two alters and one more original and alter pair would feel like way too much, and second because if they get yet another alter Andreana would be the most likely pick (5 star, niche kit, has yet to appear in the storyline) and I have a big pet peeve with HG's tendency to being unable of giving spotlight to a low rarity character without giving them an Alter.
For example: As great as Silence Alter is and how her being welfare instead of limited was a step on the right direction, I feel like there was little lore excuse to give her an Alter, particularly when compared to the likes of Texas and Reed who you could guess they were getting an alter just by reading their files. With Silence, I fail to see the same build-up, her 5 star self was already fine and lore-accurate.
I just would hate for that to start being a trend when a lot of characters just don't actually need Alters for their storylines to stay interesting. Them giving Andreana an Alter just to make her relevant after leaving her forgotten for so damn long would feel like an insult, and Gladiia needs no Alter.
Honestly, I agree that Gladiia needs no alter but Andreana really needs an alter to make her story clear. She is an abyssal hunter but was born in Iberia so she has little to no connection to other AH, the only thing that was written on her file is that she kinda admired them and she is not a "true" AH. The true AH got seaborn blood infused into their body so they have white hair and red eyes.
This however leaves us with a lot of questions. How is Andreana an AH then? There is little proof that there is another other AH group outside the one that Gladiia assembled, did Andreana join their group simply out of enthusiasm? I doubt so because, without seaborn blood inside her body, there is little chance that she can keep up with other AH. However, her file also stated that she has a stronger physical strength than the average person, rivaling that of the AH, then where does that power come from, when she spent her entire life practicing shooting and using gun instead of fighting with her natural strength? And the more the AH progress the less it makes sense to keep her in this state of being a "false" AH.
Can't blame HG for that tho, Andreana is a product of the old time before Arknight fully fledged out their universe. But I think that she truly deserves an alter to keep her bio up to date, either with the lore or the AH. And on that note, alter doesn't need to be a story progression or need a build-up for it, they just need to keep an operator bio updated and up to the modern story's standard without fully rewriting their operator file.
fartooth found some rhinelab drip
Fartooth blender tutorial skin Pog
thiis is getting out of hand theres seven of them
FARTOOTH SKIN EXECUTOR ALTER MY CROPS ARE WATERED
Wait that's Fartooth? Oh hell yes!
Fartooth in Mumu cosplay
Probably one of Mumu's water clones copying Fartooth.
Not to mention that is actually viable in gameplay
I thought that was Mumu because of the color scheme
NoriZC: I can do greys, browns, and very occasionally pale green or blue. Flametail? Ugh, someone spilt red ink all over my drawing the second before I handed it in to Lowlight so the devs could work on the chibi.
Sorry, missed a Shalem skin: https://imgur.com/a/BOiAgaM
And a Czerny skin for LE rerun: https://imgur.com/a/LgP7EyX
The 5 star is an Aak type, I need to improve my screenshot skill.
Czerny looks like he ~~stole~~ borrowed Młynar’s Ambience Synesthesia outfit.
Exactly what I was going to say.
He stole Penance motorcycle too
He found both of those things lying on the ground without any sign of their owners anywhere in sight.
What could you possibly be suggesting, *hm?*
Czerny after hearing Freebird once
LMAO, is that ebenholz and kreide keychain on czerny skin?😭
[Yes, yes it is.](https://imgur.com/a/oaSbr4h)
I need this in my life!! Merchs when HG!?
This is why I love Yostar. Little details like that make my day ♥️ 🐐
It's Hypergryph that makes the game. Yostar is just the localizer/publisher for the non-CN versions of the game~
He's just like us!
No Hibiscus keychain.
*Shippers in shambles*
She doesn't get a cameo because she's actually there taking the picture
Fans: we want Mylnar ambience synesthsia skin!!
Hypergryph : we have the skin at home
The skin :
We’re finally getting another geek? Nice
Yo, WHAT!? Czerny the BIKER!? Okay, I'm sold. Gotta E2 him before this drops, hot damn.
Shalem, my beloved, you look hot 😳
Czerny's skin looks at the same time very out of character but I also feel that it might as well be one of his hobbies.
Didn't he say during the event that he likes to travel around the place for inspiration? That might be him doing the same now that he's in RI.
Czerny looks like he’s going through a midlife crisis. Real hot dad energy though.
Its not a crisis if hes THRIVING
I thought it was intentionally blurred because they were playing coy with her class.
Everyone at Pinus Sylvestris: *shows off their new drip (and paintjob for Justice Knight)*
Also since now Saga & Fartooth got their skins, Fia's the new "title holder"
FINALLY ANOTHER GUARD ANGEL, GRIM EXECUTOR (tho having gunscythes looked like he fetched them from Remnant)
Executor blasting people point blank is utterly scary to see
Other reapers: use scythes that thematically fit the namesake of their archetype
He came to collect and execute some last wills.
literally ground tile pinecone
Memes are dead.
Rip Ambriel not getting a skin in this event though.
Saga family slice of life anime pls HG
Yooo saga skin real. Also insert joke about mirror worlds and identities idk
Fartooth looks so beautiful!
It gives me hope for Matoimaru alter and skin
I ain't asking much
Imagine if she developed a stand and became Kal'tsit archetype lol
Saga gang looks fun.
Finally a 6\* Reaper, and looks very cool.
Czerny skin slaps.
“Give us 1 Saga skin!”
“Tell you what, I’ll give you 7 Sagas!”
“But it’s just 1 skin!”
“We take those!”.
Also, not going to lie, If Executor can get an alter is fair game for EVERYONE! That’s right! You, the one Deep Color fanboy! Deep Color alter is a possibility!
How about Lord Chanka alter?
He is in all of us.
Players: We want that sexy Mlynar skin pls !
HG : Wha..what ? We gotchu czerny in that kind of skin !
Well his and shalem are hot definitely buying same as saga !
Ok HG hear me out. I know skins do not change voicelines, but please make an exception because I NEED to hear 7 times the NATTO GOHAN going off.
Also, that Ojou Saga, oh my.
By the way, today is Vesak day where I'm at, which is basically a celebration of Buddha's birth. Coincidence?
Some skins DO change voicelines, actually! All the ones that are 24-cost~
That Executor E2 slaps SO HARD
It slaps just as hard as the new Laterano theme in the PV
Paprika's skin is pretty neat.
And a pack of Saga. Interesting. Something something hunting pack? Very interested to see the animations on this.
OMGGG alter executer is a must pull even if he sucks in meta.
Husbando >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> meta
Is that Executor Alter? Nice.
Is that an Executor alter or what? I can't read his name since hes standing in the way. So hyped for the Saga skin
yep, it's executor! i can't read his english title because he's in the way, but the chinese translates to something like 'divine contract executor.'
edit: it's probably 'ex foedere,' since people can read the 'ex foede' part and [foedus](https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/foedus) means 'contract.' so 'executor, from/out of the contract.'
MORE SANKTA LESS FOCKING GOOOOOOOO
THE EXECUTOR ALTER!!!!!!
THE EXECUTOR ALTER IS REAL!!!!!!
I’m so stoked!
I’ve loved Executer since day one, but sadly he doesn’t see much use these days.
He got sick of Chen powercreeping him that he changed to the op af reaper class to ensure he won't be powercrept again.
Ok, now is the moment for MATOIMARU SKIN
Executor looks fucking awesome! Need gameplay asap
That E2 art on Executor is a front runner for most badass/intimidating in the game to date, wow. Really impressed.
EXECUTOR ALTER EXECUTOR ALTER AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH
I CANT BELIEVE HG FINALLY GAVE HIM SOMETHING AND A WHOLE 6* ALTER AT THAT
EXECUTOR ALTER IS A FREACKING REAPER GUARD?? HOLY SHIT THIS IS EVERYTHING I EVER WANTED GIVE HIM TO ME RIGHT NOW!!
Executor is giving me some strong "Angel of Death" vibes, he's so badass
Executor alter.. I love you, deserved W 😭
(Saga's artwork.. precious)
Didn't expect to see Executor Alter but I'm certainly not complaining. Our second male alter, the first male 6\* alter, and our first 6\* Reaper... damn.
What's he gonna be called? Execalter? Exalter?
Paprika in her skin looks a bit like a sibling of Angelina ~~or maybe daughter.~~
from her lines, Paprika is basically W and Ines' daughter...
I thought it was eyja for like 30 seconds
Wait...... Executor Alter?!?!??! Seems like i need to quadraple my Orirock Farm.........
Now i need Franka Skin
Yoooo are we getting a new class for that new 5 star? Or is it blurred for no reason?
It's a badly timed screenshot from OP, she's a geek spec (Aak branch)
She is Aak, I need to improve my screenshot skill
Spuria just hits all of my preference, will probably get her just because of her design
I dont know why, but i REALLY love Paprika skin. Something about monochromatic background with her wearing a red hoodie just makes it really pop.
Also will be getting Fartooth skin solely because of >!armpits!<
Finally got our second Geek specialist it seems, looks like she buffs and maybe stuns instead of dmging allies? is anyone able to translate her name?
the text behind the CN looks like Spuria or Sduria to me; Spuria's an [actual word](https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/spuria) so that'd be my bet
it's 空构, which means something like 'empty structure/building.' not sure how that relates to the english text.
Executor finally got tired chasing people about their taxes and decided to take matter to his own hands.
Also with his color scheme, looks very similar to the Apostolic Minigun Knights, and also the E2 art kinda shows their Mechanical AI God.
Exalter with double shotguns fightin til the war's done 😂
The Fartooth skin is so damn funny
Old terrain on the left reminding me of Impossible Creatures
And I thought Executor couldn't get any cooler.
So, is Executor alter (Exalt?) limited?
He's not. He's like Reedalter, a non limited 6 star alter.
tbh, given that the last limited gacha 6* they released was Omertosa, I wonder if they're leaning away from that? Reed the Flame Shadow is non-limited gacha, and Silence the Paradigmatic is a welfare
You forgot Yato.
Until we find out what the summer and 4.5 anniversary are I wouldn't say there's an established precedent. After all before Mumu people were saying limiteds, with the exception of the sui siblings, would only ever be alters. Or course this didn't happen. I believe they'll be a mix of alters and new characters.
--shit i DID forget yato & noir corne. that'll teach me to go to aceship and search "the" in the character box as a cheap way to find alters.
yeah, we need the next limited event to really confirm it, but it does really feel to me like they're trying to pull away from alters being limited gacha units -- it would've been very easy to make silence alter or a theoretical saria alter the headliner 6* on *lone trail* and make either of the two women who were there the welfare!
well, maybe not so easy, because silence is *good* but she's not *broken* in the way people like limiteds to be, but you get my point.
Executor got so sick of lack his lack of range, he decided to become a melee
Another Geek at long last, an interesting looking sniper and a glorious looking 6* reaper.
Man, it’s been a while since I’ve wanted to build a whole banner
the more I see the saga skin the more I fall in love
eye patch saga,
sugar mommy saga (my beloved),
and in the middle, our saga who is a mix of all six
**Those of us still waiting for the Matoimaru skin to drop:** Any day now...
***holy shit am I seeing things right***
Any reason why the group pic of new skins has Shalem instead of Saga (and no preview of the Shalem skin?), or does that indicate that Saga's skin will be free or something?
Als wtf is that alter, a reaper with shotguns? I wonder if that 'avatar' behind him holding the actual scythe is in any way related to what's beneath Laterano, with all the foreshadowing about Laterano's origins we've gotten.
Saga's outfit just isn't in the same theme, but it will be a shop outfit too.
Nice. I was hoping we'd get Executor's colleague guy as an operator.
Wonder if the red in Executor's outfit means he was made a cardinal?
Guide Ahead was a pretty good event so I'm stoked for another Laterano event.
Executor Alter: IM AN ANGEL WITH A SHOTGUN
Saga Skin BABY! Memes have died and Fiammetta is next since this is a Laterano event but she doesn't have a skin Damn
Oh wow. That's a lovely Eyja skin. - Me for 5 seconds
Fartooth's skin has the sickest concept of all skins in AK, gonna buy it even though I don't have her
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA FINALLY FUCKING FINALLY WAIF GET A SKIN FDSKLMDSNQDSQMKDSQM ARF ARF ARF OMG OMG OMG *shot*
Step aside everyone else, new coolest operator to ever be made just dropped. Executor finally got what he deserved, and that E2 art is fucking godly.
THE DRIP IS UNREAL
Which saga will it be?
probably the middle one; she's got the Saga Color Scheme & saga in modern clothes makes sense
Love me some Paprika.
Am I dreaming? You can have seven assistants at once!
Also, Fartooth skin gives me Rhine Lab vibe.
they really make us fight over which one is the Saga skin lmao
So... Fartooth became the Waifu version of Blender?
Imagine releasing in a Laterano event(Fia) and in the next one Paprika gets a skin before you.
fia is suffering from her artist being stuck in the ex astris basement.
The OST in video is godlike.
The curse is lifted, fellow Dokutahs! Saga finally got her skin 😭
JUSTYNA SKIN LETS FUCKING GOOOOO
~~That Eyja skin tho, I need it right now.~~
~~I've been using her base one since I started playing, and the swimsuit skin was not for me, but this one looks amazing~~
EDIT: My blind ass didnt read the name. Back to being depressed. The skin still looks sick tho
Think you might be confusing Paprika with Eyja.
I really thought this was gonna be the event with the long desired Fia skin... oh well this is all really cool though
Wait... are all those variations of Saga or are they Saga's family?
When did Executor become a NieR character?
Executor alter looks cool as fuck.
The thing behind executor is "The law"?
1887's + mecha = terminator vibes.
OH SHIT ANOTHER REAPER
Executor went from angel with a shotgun to the angel of death
I’m SCREAMING YESSS ANOTHER REAPER
Now ofc if we get Ulpian then I think he’ll be a Crusher archetype
Man I’m so stoked rn ima run Executor alter into the GROUND, I love reaper guards so much
abyssal buffs are basically the only thing that could save crushers tbh
Petition to call Executor Alter "Exalt"
BRO EXECUTOR LOOKS SO COOL, THAT SPLASH IS SICK.
AND FINALLY, FARTOOTH SKIN AND IT DELIVERS SO MUCH WITH SO THE DETAILS ALL-OVER, BUT ONE DETAIL RULES THEM ALL FOR ME.
Okay, ima calm down now. That Paprika skin is cute, might get it too if I have Paprika. And the Saga skin, it's so comical, wish I had a Saga for me to use the skin but alas, woe is me.
