On the 26th they announce Castlevania 5. WIN!

But that wouldn't even make sense.  :-\

That man isn't Adolf Hitler. That, and his uniform looks British, not German. But yeah I can agree that if someone compares you to another person they lose a severe amount of credibility. Life is like a double-edged sword; don't cut unless you're prepared to be cut.

He was a German Colonel General.

And eh. In regards to something of this nature, I probably have more credibility than anyone on this forum. Something I don't feel I have to prove : p

If there is anyone who knows anything about online promotion, getting followers, and the like, especially in relation to something Castlevania related, it's moi : )

Thanks. The uniform threw me off until you clarified it.

Not Gunlord.

He's pretty up there. In the halls of legend, they still sing songs of his accomplishments and will for many days to come, particularly his performance of the VOTOMs theme. Some whisper that Gunlord will surpass the Halls of Legend, and be elevated to the Mount of Mythology. Now, I don't know if this is true, but I can see the potential for it.

What does a Nazi General have to do with a Simple Operation that is pretty much devoted to preserving the development of 2D games and the 25th Anniversary? Nothing.
If your looking for tactics, See what the other Operations are doing to get a good idea on what to do.

The Anniversary looks like a bust no matter what, so the short term focus with the Tribute that's coming up is to help raise awareness, and then use that awareness as leverage for the long term goals like Demon Castle War and Dracula's Curse Chronicles.

That's just it, though. Your long-term goals could also go for more simplicity and broader fan appeal. Using a grassroots campaign to get a Demon Castle War game or a Dracula's Curse remake will get some supporters, but it will also leave a lot of people scratching their heads, and some people just flat-out disagreeing (that one is expected in any scenario, but I digress). I know that nobody wants to water down their ideas, but you might find more success in focusing more on the state of the series in general, or possibly the total lack of info on Konami's part (the current status of the series, IGA's status, etc).

The problem there though is that your still only limiting yourself to just the Castlevania fanbase and a very specific group of them too, which isnt going to help increase numbers. The Operations ideas are going to need to have wider appeal in order for Konami to take notice, remember that the effect Konami wanted from LOS was for more people (and their wallets) to be interested in Castlevania so I think it would be pretty safe to say that even if everyone on this forum joined Operation Akumjo it still wouldn't have the numbers to satisfy Konami's greed otherwise thngs would be very different right now.

 How so? ??? I think addressing the current state of the series in general, and the lack of news/recognition of the anniversary may have the broadest appeal you can get. But I do agree: it needs more support than just more Dungeon users. It would have to be at least several thousand to start getting recognition. Probably at least tens of thousands to hold any significance with Konami.

Whether you consider the series to be in a state of decline or growth is a matter of opinion
& based off the LOS reviews that I've read the most popular opinion is that Castlevania has never been better.

I also recall the Reviews Praising Dead Island for its graphics (console version) just to be shattered by non-commercial reviews (many problems)

That might be true, but you can't get many satisfied fans to join a movement asking for change. I'm only talking about finding better ways to address the shortcomings of the series. It's true that criticism of the series might not get many supporters in general, but there are definitely ways to maximize that number.

Online petitions like this never work. This movement is largley inspired by Operation Rainfall and Moonfall, correct? I think the difference between them and Operation Akumajou is that they demand something that already exist or at least has been considered by the developers. But even those operations don't have any success, so why even bother?
