D+B, Dangerous Buffalo, is one of the 13 brands in the game. The brand represents the Ox in the Chinese Zodiac. The brand features a lot of sparkles, rhinestones, and what appears to be club wear. Some of their apparel is also cowboy themed, as is congruous with their bull theme.
D+B has two main stores; One located inside 104 building and one located in Molco. The shopkeeper in Molco is Tsubasa. D+B having a main store in 104 Building results in D+B often being the most popular brand in that area.
Shiki's fusion stickers are found at D+B, as is Her Stuffed Animal item. Thus it seems Shiki is fond of this brand, however the style of D+B clothing closely matches the style of Shiki during in-game cutscenes and cinematics, which would imply that Eri wore D+B style clothing and not Shiki.
References to the Chinese ZodiacEdit
- While the zodiac describes the Ox as a sign of the steadfast, hard working, patience, honest, and creative to those under its year, its wardrobe of party and leisure might come across as the contrary to many. In deeper introspection however, many and much of its wardrobe is that of clothing that requires a great deal of patience, expertise, and experience to work on, being that of leatherware, including leg wear and boots, heavy materials, and intricate pieces, such as bras and to even jewelry; the inclusion of many D+B outfitters allowing early access to top class leather hides and even sterling silver greatly hints that D+B is a designer brand, which is a venture that requires not just skill in the trade of couture, but also that of PR and self run business management.
- Allowing for psychokinesis is much like the carnage of a charging oxen, mercilessly plowing and running over anything in its path. Its inclusion of ice based negative psyches, along with its designer party ware theme, runs along a reference to a famous auspicious belief in Chinese astrology regarding ox signs, in that if one is born under the sign of the Ox during the times of winter, much like them merely resting in the barn and being fed unlike in the toiling times of summer and spring, that such people are destined for a life of ease and little labor.
- Concerning the sign's incompatibility with the Sheep, its style of sexy and promiscuous but stylish and suave would be ultimately swamped by Sheep Heavenly's baggy and all covering designs of clothes, with many a compromise to be made only with its neat line of accessories, or to ultimately modify them by cutting them short into short shorts, belly cuts, sleeveless shirts, or to wear them unconventionally, such as a tartan as a shirt skirt. Putting many combinations together brings about the sour clashing taste of gaudy, where the bagginess and the skin tight clash brings about raunchy aesthetic.
Many of D+B's pins have good battle area control with pins that can affect large areas from any distance.
- Ice Blow (W1D2) and Ice Risers are excellent Piercing Pillar S pins.
- Sexy D is the first Psychokinesis D pin. It is ideal for completing week 1 with ease, as it will act as the puck passer while Ice Blow or Ice Risers are rebooting.
- Star Cap (W1D4) provides an easy +5 ATK for Shiki, along with a relevant ability, which will boost her power considerably during week 1.
- D+B Ring (W3D2) is the only maingame item with Puck Power 2, which boosts the starting puck multiplier by 1.0X, making it the most powerful maingame accessory. In addition, it has a low BRV requirement and a hefty ATK boost.
