What's your excuse for not having watched the greatest coming of age story of all time yet?
Also why aren't there other tv anime with the superior 45 minutes per episode format?
>>
Are the two girls in that picture gay for each other? I need to know whether it's worth watching.
>>
>>117777278
No, they are not, they are sorts of stepsisters. Also one of them is an alien.
>>
I wanted to watch it but I got E-D's version with 640x360 so I postponed it.
>>
>>117777247
I never finished it. I never will finish it. Its just too sad.

The anime? Oh, yes it is and it doesn't get less at all.

Figure17 was pretty good but you sound like a shit in your post op so I guess you can go fuck yourself.

It is the better version of moe: realistic cuteness.

That's not FLCL.

Yes.

No keiki, only bread. There father is a baker.

I got the first episode on a preview disc that came with my NewtypeUSA subscription way back when. I liked the cute girl(s), but when she transformed into a grown up woman with big boobs I said fuck this shit.

You're not exactly selling this, anon.

I had that too. Still have only seen that one episode though. Should probably finish it someday.
>>
>>117780817
It's completely different, but personally I prefer it. Tsubasa is basically the most realistic child MC I've seen in anime. The series is about her becoming more self-confident through interaction with her new twinsister and classmates and can be incredibly sweet as well as extremely sad at times.

>>117780837
>Implying bread isn't better than cake in every aspect

>>117780812
The fighting scenes make only about 30% of the series, most part is social ganbatte.
>>
>>117777247
>Also why aren't there other tv anime with the superior 45 minutes per episode format?

Most productions can barely afford their half-hour slot, how the fuck are they gonna double that?
>>
I thought it was cute. Only watched it once though.
>>
>>117781049
Okay, I'll watch it.
>>
>>117781057
But would it cost more to get lets say 13 46 minutes slots than 26 23 minute slots?
>>
>>
>>117781049
>as well as extremely sad at times.
That one episode. You know whch one I'm talking about. It still hurts.
>>
>>117781112
Depends on the season and slot. If it's airing at fuck-you-o'-clock like half of late-night anime, it'd be a little more doable but then again whoever's negotiating their slot isn't exactly fighting for the better hours.
>>
>>117781112
Yes.
Longer time slots have less ad breaks.
>>
>>
>>117781286
Makes sense. Too bad, though, I feel that 45 minutes is pretty close to the perfect length for an anime episode. It's much better better to really get into the story than mere ~23 minutes.
>>
>>117781112
Consider that it's rare to see a show today with two or more consecutive cours, and that the doubled weekly airtime means double weekly effort required from the animators. Straight-up more expensive, and flopping or being overshadowed would be a death sentence.

I watched like 4 or 5 episodes and I thought it was kinda generic. Also I don't get why they decided to go with 45 min. episodes, the pacing sometimes is just too slow.

The lolis were cute though, so maybe I'll finish it tonight.

Nice taste, OP. But I think you may be overselling it a bit.
Just a bit.

>>117781194
The last one?
Man, I don't remember.
>>
>>117781025
The action scenes are easily the worst part of the anime, but fortunately most of the time is spent on comfy/sad SoL and character development.

It was pretty great as I remember it. Pretty unique and great at what it does. It's been quite a while since I watched it so I was planning on re-watching it some time. I guess I might as well take the cue and download it.

Also, the opening was nice.

Well, the main idea is not exactly new, that's true, but the execution was magnificent if you ask me. Also the plot later gets some twist that are rather untypical for this kind of show.

>>117782369
Indeed, I also like the battle theme very much.

Requesting the gif/webm of that terror movie-esque scene with Tsubasa being attacked by the alien on the first episode.
>>
>>
The only torrents for this on animebytes are the 640*352 E-D release and an unseeded 40 GB torrent of DVD isos.

OP please order and rip and sub and upload the blu-rays, if it's so great.

>Figure 17 OST - Battle of Fire (Female Chorus Version)
Shit you just hit me in the nostalgia bone really hard.

While we're at it, I really like this song too. It did a nice job capturing the mix of melancholic and bucolic that the show had about it.

I have the complete series on DVD. This remains in my top 5 greatest anime of all time.

>>117783766
I also have the two manga volumes that was made for it.

>>117783840
But do you have the light novel?

>>117783936
no. not yet. been looking for it though. It's long out of print.

I don't have the LN either. Or Blus.

I downloaded it but I couldn't get the japanese audio to play through my Playstation 3

>>117784608
Likely a codec issue.

That final alien battle is like something out of Berserk.

Then again it is done by the same staff

problem solved.

I wish this series got an OVA. Would be fun to see Figure 17 in action again.
