No tricks, no gimmicks.
This is one of the few cases where the anime is much better, not only it has extra scenes that the manga just rush through them, it also have more detailed characters. Too much sameface in the manga.
Bottom, those eyes drive me nuts.
Danger, Will Robinson. High potential for grievous bodily harm.
I really liked the show but I can understand why it's not loved by many.
It's well done, it has things people like, the animation is good, the art in the manga is alright, it has fanservice, it has action, etc.
But I feel the main characters are a bit dull.
And they have this kind of weird approach to being positive. I have nothing against it, I'm all for being positive but in their case it feels kinda acted/shallow because how much they have to remark everything. The main antagonists aren't that good either, things happen and get resolved but you don't feel there's any kind of real struggle even if they show it.
It makes my dick rock hard though, all the girls are amazing.
This show has everything, except for one thing: a decently paced and written plot.
And i guess getting a terrible adaptation beforehand didn't help the second time.
About the rest
>great animation and style
>decent OST/good OP
>nice characters (every girl is best girl)
>well done fights
>DAT MOTHERFUCKING SOUND DESIGN
I still love it.
>this will never be you
I forget, did Hime ever actually sing it in Hana no Uta?
>not making this your ringtone
Bottom, only Kayano Ai voiced character that makes me diamonds.
>you will never be able to out-Wehraboo her
>voice by Sawashiro
>not a single fucking doujin
This show was great, does the manga go past where the show left off? Ive heard mixed things about it.
>does the manga go past where the show left off
Quite a bit, yes. There are also some segments that were skipped entirely.
Said it before in these threads and I'll say it once more, Yasuda designed characters will be cursed with either:
1. No doujins at all.
2. Painfully small amount of doujins that may or may not be good.
or 3. All yaoi fujoshit.
Or maybe watch it because it's a good show. Yasuda girls are just a bonus.
Show was great, but the openings were shit. I hate the singer with such a burning passion. The terrible engrish and too happy tone always ruined it for me. Literally the only show in which I skipped every opening.
>and the art is actually pretty good
Not just pretty good. It's fucking fantastic. I agree that most artists would have a hard time with it. There is something special about it.
Build Fighters has a lot of doujinshi, although Yasuda isn't entirely the character designer.
Hime is cute
The final fight scene of the wolf-arc was the best shit I've seen in a while. It was just a collection of badass-scenes with god-tier OST. I love this show and it makes me feel bad that there is no animated material that I could consume
Note on the chart: the recommendation to watch Hoshi no Umi isn't just a "these episodes fit into the continuity here": the TV series literally stops just before HnU, expects you to go watch it, and then picks up where HnU finishes.
If you don't watch it, it will make no fucking sense, and several characters will appear out of thin air.
I was all like "oh yeah the setting is pretty cool and i like the characters. Oh, what's this? Oh, nice save...HOLY SHIT!"
I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one who had this reaction
