Just spent new years eve marathoning this show, and I'd say this is the best new year I've had in a while, AOTY definitely.
really regret not seeing it with /a/ when it came out, so how badly did it sell? S2 ever?

Why would you want a S2? The story was finished and the ending was great. Who's your favourite girl?
>>
>>135536213
That picture paints a very unrealistic expectation. Just sayin'.

>S2
Nah.
I want a mahou shoujo spin off about Hikaru, Aoi, Itsuki and Nanako magical adventures.
>>
>>135536213
I'm just gonna repeat what I've said in other threads: it was nice but:
>shit CGI
>character presentation was done only to have a narrative to give to the viewer during the hunt and wasn't integrated to the story, nor did the characters personnalities have any influence on the script because none of it mattered in the face of the fragments' hunt
>episode 10 was a mess of storytelling that jumbled a shitloard of story elements altogether by trying to act as "revealish" as possible (I sometimes wonder why there is a trend of "big episode 10 revelation" and what started this shit)
>Deus Ex Machina Black Subaru that didn't have any importance nor was explained
>slightly confusing ending
>perhaps a little too generic
>>
I just want Itsuki doujins.

This. The girls were irrelevant. I waited years for nothing.
>>
The blandest show I've seen in years. Only the astronomy porn saved it, because the characters were all pastel coloured ciphers and the conflict had no tension whatsoever.

No, just no.

>>slightly confusing ending
What was confusing about it? they go back to their timelines and forget what happened

>>character presentation was done only to have a narrative to give to the viewer during the hunt and wasn't integrated to the story, nor did the characters personalities have any influence on the script because none of it mattered in the face of the fragments' hunt
The whole point of the show was that they all wanted to change, but couldn't do it on their own. Hunting for fragments was just a plot device to have each girl confront/realise something. Nanako had to realise that she's not alone, Hikaru had to listen to her father's song and open up to her family, Itsuki had to stop being a pussy, Aoi had to start being honest with her feelings, Subaru had to be more reliable and be able to do things on her own.

>they go back to their timelines and forget what happened
You can add this to my list then:
>amnesia ending
Confusing: How were they actually able to go back? What was all this talk about the possibilities of life? Where does it come from?

It's "case of the week" writing (the laziest kind of writing you can find in any medium) and you never saw any actual grounded consequence of their actions because all of it has no impact on how the character acts with regards to the mission (which is the main interest). The development happened outside of the plot.
In the first season of Nanoha, the hunt was important but the girls' personalities revealed something of a much deeper importance and interfered with their missions, effectively creating deeper conflict and making the plot evolve. In HnP, it all stayed the same no matter what bland character presentation and dev happened. Which was then reverted by the ending.

>No, just no.
Nice retort.

>Nice retort.
Minato gave her a star of potential, that became the new source of her power. It's not really Deus Ex Machina since we knew that they met and that Minato could use magic, Subaru just forgot about it.

> amnesia ending
We only know what happened to Subaru and she came back to ep1, so it's normal she doesn't remember anything. She starts from the last point when she was still in her timeline. I just assume that same thing happened to all girls.

>Confusing: How were they actually able to go back?
Elnath has the technology to seize any possible outcome and to summon people from other timelines to his own and then send him back, but he needed energy to do it.
>What was all this talk about the possibilities of life? Where does it come from?
Many-worlds interpretation.

well maybe not a season 2, but a similar styled show. I think this is the closest we'll get to a sci-fi slice of life in a while. I just want my cute girls exploring the vast expanses of space.

and i think im going with hikaru
>>
The plot lost me around episode 10 as well, but that didn't decrease my enjoyment at all.
The crazy space adventures were all I needed to get pumped, and i love how they up the ante each episode.

Good choice, even though I loved Subaru.
It wasn't popular so I wouldn't hope for anything similar to come out next year, but I'd love to see more feel-good space shows.

Also, since this thread is dying I will just dump the usual.

Probably the hidden gem of 2015.

I'm hoping more car companies will decide to sponsor anime, and provide enough economic boost to revitalize the industry.
why did subaru want to make an anime anyways, is the CEO a big Gainax fan? I thought there was surprisingly little product placement in the show, it would have been fun to have more car references, they were some of the funniest bits.

these are awesome, thanks mate.
I'm hoping to find some in depth analysis of the physics of the show, it feels like they did their research on some parts and hand waved the others.
>>
>>135540371
There were quite a few anons discussing the show's physics when it was airing so you might be able to find some of it in the archive. I'm no expert on it myself so I wouldn't be able to regurgitate it.
>>
>>135540371
>they did their research on some parts and hand waved the others
Pretty much.
>>
Always nice to see some Pleiades love. The airing threads were half the fun too. Shame it didn't get much recognition since so many wrongly dismissed it as a blatant car ad.

Favorite episode?
The finale wrapped everything up so nicely and that departure scene with the girls was so touching that I can't help but pick it.

Favorite girl?
Tie between Subaru and Nanako.
Nanako's silly yet stoic demeanor was very endearing but Subaru was cute as fuck and her chats with Minato were always a pleasure to watch
>>
>>135540805
my favorite episodes are the backstory ones for Hikaru, Itsuki and Nanako. ep 4, 5 and 8 i think.
they are self contained and I love the shit just got real vibe I get whenever they travel farther and farther from earth.

They really did a fantastic job with the last episode. I think my favorite episode might be episode 4 because I really love that dream sequence between Hikaru and Subaru.

My favorite girl would have to be Subaru. I really like how they portrayed her as a genki girl with a tinge of loneliness. It helped me really get invested in the relationships she formed with the other characters.

Either Dream of Sol or Nanako 13, but man this show had so many great moments it's hard to choose from.

Subaru, she was cute as hell but still had her sad and lonely moments. Also her romance with Minato was probably the most po-warm romance sub plot I saw, since CCS.

I'm half-way the show and it look like there's no more BD translated. Did the volume release really improved the quality or I can continue with the TV version?
>>
>>135545549
I don't know, but the TV version looks perfectly fine aside from some bad CG in the sun episode.
>>
>>135545549
>improved the quality
Not sure but there isn't any offensively bad animation or art in the TV release aside from the CGI which is used quite sparingly for wide shots and less relevant scenes. I say go for it because the BDs won't be completely subbed for a while yet.
