The really need to learn Agile Development.

To be honest, although this probably wasn’t the author’s intent, I can’t help but wonder if Yagami was actually feeling pretty frustrated working on PECO. It’s dressed up in moe sweetness, but so much of the development this time clearly rubbed her the wrong way. Especially the key visual incident, that REALLY seemed to upset her, much more so even than Aoba. If she stayed at Eagle Jump, why wouldn’t the producers just do that again for every game they make?

 

I figure that some part of the reason that Yagami left is because she felt that she was in the way of Aoba's ambitions.

I think so too. This is for Aoba's sake as well. Yes, she is leaving to try her hand at something new and get better. That's part of it. But she also knows Aoba can't grow into her potential always being in her shadow, which the key visual incident taught her.

They make video games in France?

(specifically ones with interesting enough artwork for someone like Yagami to grow)

Christina = best

I have Timeskip vibes here. There are some solid stories to tell in how they handle the next project without Yagami and how Yagami fares in France, but after a volume or 2 of that I feel like there will be a timeskip of a couple years, 2 or 3 more games made down the line, picking up with Yagami's return.

Watch her come back next volume. "The company went under." or something like that

Yagami is Aoba's ambition. She's wanted to be just like her from day one. It reads more to me like Yagami is setting off to break off the complacency-rust and polish her skills in a new (and according to the manga more challenging) land so she can live up to everyone's expectations, especially Aoba's, and be more like the woman they all admire.

I don't think that was the intent at all, if anything I think losing out to Aoba with the PECO designs and her reaction to the initial defeat had her start to realise she had become complacent in her work (this was highlighted when her work was rejected for being too similar to Fairies.) , and then seeing Aoba push herself to compete with her, knowing it was a losing battle, made her want to challenge herself again, to be an underdog and having to prove herself in a much more demanding market.

 

She's been the main character designer since she was 18 years old, and she's still only 26? She'd hit her peak at the Eagle Jump, and now it's time for a reset and face new challenges.

A lot of people seem to want to interpret it that way, but based on her own comments about the reason, the discussion had during the Christmas chapter seems a lot more relevant. With everyone else doing all the work for her, she had no chance to grow and further develop her skills (at least, the ones she wanted to).

 

So to me it seems more like she's looking to challenge herself with something new than she is bitter about PECO.

 

I have a hard time seeing her as someone who would focus so much on the negative, instead of looking to find positive aspects.

Ha! Turns out my read was correct. PECO was released in TGS, which is always held in September (in fact, 2017's just ended yesterday). Since the girls finished their 3-month internships right before, that means they ended at the end of August or early September. Therefore, the interviews would have happened in May and the internships started end of May or early June.

 

The manga would have referenced the 2016 TGS, BTW. That one was held September 15-18.

 

Well, OK. I missed by about 2 months. But the point stands!

It's not released yet. That was a pre-launch publicity event they were doing. There's still a little bit until it releases.

oh so they plan doing LDR play, eh 

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Not Ubisoft, Electronic Arts...

It's Ubishit. They referenced Ass Creed, whom Christina's sister was working on

 

Not that Ass Excrement wouldn't be worse 

Peco's release date was clearly stated to be "winter."

 

The interns started over summer break, which is the month of August in Japan. They are nearing the end of their initial three month term, making it nearly November in the story, a full year after the release of Fairies.

 

Edit: Plus or minus a month or so, because it's difficult to be exactly sure how long it's been since they started. To be more precise, it's currently somewhere between mid September and late October. The actual release should happen around the same time of year Fairies did.

Well done, Doki. Just barely finished the manga chapters that the anime was covering before they aired.

A company does not own an employee!! If anything I would suggest that the whole debacle over PECO made Kou disapointed with Eagle Jump. She even considered quiting outright. So no it was not a ‘jerk move’,

 

If anything, it would be seen as very respectful to the company because she left with many people she had taught and mentored, people like Aoba who are able to do work at her level.  The gaming industry has as many employer switches as the tech industry does; I'm actually surprised Kou hasn't changed her job before this.  

 

It's actually very rare within the two industries to leave with people you've coached and had real relationships with (that are staying at the company you're leaving). 

 

I just hope author isn't going to just ditch Kou and only write about Eagle Jump.

France?

 

FRANCE?

Wait wait wait, she's Kou's sister? Was that revealed and just I've forgotten it?

Kou is going to work for Christina's sister

Wait wait wait, she's Kou's sister? Was that revealed and just I've forgotten it?

 

Christina was referring to her sister in France who also makes games and apparently is pretty good at it. It's the person Kou will be working for. She got shown (her back at least) back when Christina was telling her story about having a physically affectionate sister (v6 ch.52 page 17)

While I was reading Chapter 63, it kinda made me chuckle a bit to think that this would be a real jerk move in real life situation.

You play the central role in the company that has just started to grow big. Your employer and coworkers are also expecting to rely on you for the next project. Suddenly, without any prior notice or substitute plan, you walk up to your employer and tell straight in her face that you want to leave the company, so you can work at this another company.

But, anyways, RIP Yagami :'( I really hope she makes much more frequent appearances...

No Kou....don't Gooooo, well they left the door open for her to return, however considering it's taken over four years to move 18 months in the time line, I don't expect we'll see her rejoin the team for a while, though hopefully we still see her make appearances through video calls, and who know like volume 5 we'll see a side story arc with Yagami's struggles in France, with the language, food and sister of Christina who likes to hug, it would make for a amusing read (specially with Yagami being originally quite standoffish, and even better if this happened if she was on a video conference with Rin.).
