Combo refers to the combination of the Show's setting and its theme. It generally affects the show's ratings and success.

Combo QualityEdit

Combos are evaluated after the director finishes creating a draft for the show. Listed below are the combo qualities, from best to worst:

  • Masterpiece - This feels like a masterpiece in the making! I can't wait.
  • Promising - This sound like a promising concept! I bet it will be popular!
  • Normal - This script is finished--it's time to start animation!
  • Unique - That's a unique concept! If everything goes well, it may become a hit!
  • 50/50 - Hmm... I'm not sure about this one. I guess it could go either way.
  • Worrisome - I'm not sure about this concept at all... I'm worried how it will turn out.

Combo CreationEdit

Each setting has a certain number of themes that go well with it. Two [setting+theme] pairings combined together creates a show's combo quality.

Quality MatchingEdit

  • Worr. + Worr. = Worr.
  • Worr. + 50/50 = Worr.
  • Worr. + Uniq. = Worr.
  • Worr. + Norm. = Worr.
  • Worr. + Prom. = Uniq.

  • 50/50 + 50/50 = Uniq.
  • 50/50 + Uniq. = Norm.
  • 50/50 + Norm. = Norm.
  • 50/50 + Prom. = Prom.

  • Uniq. + Uniq. = Norm.
  • Uniq. + Norm. = Uniq.
  • Uniq. + Prom. = Prom.

  • Norm. + Norm. = Prom.
  • Norm. + Prom. = Prom.

  • Prom. + Prom. = Mast.

In short, to create a "Masterpiece" show, the player can follow two steps.

  • First, pick out a Setting (listed below in column headers).
  • Second, pick out 2 Themes that go well with that setting (listed as Promising under the Setting's column).

In case a masterpiece combination is not available, the table below can still be used to avoid risky combinations and improve the show's ratings.
