Honestly this was a terrible anime, the only good thing about it were uzraiz sisters because they actually had some development. Plus the ending theme was nice. Seems like they used their entire budget on the last episode.
But Julis made the show worthwhile.
Irene a qt. Liked her the best along with Claudia out of all of the girls in Asterisk.
They're not much better.
Though they were all physically cute their personalities were lacking hugely. Just lusting after mc because dick, what kind of sluts are they?
Julis was just as boring.
These two were really nice and so was pic-related for the 4 minutes of sluttiness that made more impact than the rest of the series.
I like her and the chemisty she and MC had. None of the other girls had sparks flying, to be honest.
Kirin had more or less the same chemistry chemistry I felt. Only reason Julis edged out was because she became his partner.
S1 was weak in almost all regards so maybe the 2nd cour will hopefully cure itself of all its boring set ups with a decent payoff. Then again, it's a LN series based around tournaments so I shouldn't get any hopes up
Kirin > Ernesta > Claudia > Irene > Priscilla > Saya > Julis
F A C T
So do people actually find Julis attractive? I'm not saying she's ugly but she has one of the most boring and plain designs I've ever seen for a female character. No tits, no ass, no juicy thighs, and her hairstyle is literally just long hair thats pink
That actually depends on people, it's just like saying if there are people that likes hina(HnG) when she's a petanko, no ass and stuff. But yeah, i think this is just some people counter shitposting against that stellafag.
Hina is way more likable though. Granted, that's mostly because of prominent screentime and personality outside of being in love but as far as Julis goes in the anime, she's nothing special.
How can she be most plain and boring design? Compared to Saya and Kirin, Julis design is a lot more attractive as a girl. She arguably has the hottest design. She has decent sized tits, which isn't even important since DFC is good too anyways. She's healthy enough to not be excessively busty, which I think isn't that attractive. Long hair down is simple but is attractive. It's common and popular for a reason. Her hair accessories are cute and does compliments her personality.
Sylvia is the best girl though.
The adaptation did a terrible job in garnering interest for me to read on so I wouldn't know. Even then HnG's adaptation still made out Hina to be the fan favorite
>does have development as well as a personality outside of wanting the MC's D.
Yeah those few seconds where she doesn't lust for the MC's dick sure felt important
Ayato is more of a con than a pro in this series I felt. He added nothing and felt more of a side character sidekick to Julis instead of being the main character with his paper-thin goal.
>20% to 80%
Felt like the other way around or around a 70% to 30% in every scene she's in after episode 4.
I watched the entire show and any interaction outside of fighting and the few seconds that she told him her story is just her getting flustered for no reason, arguing over him, and wanting his D.
I'm not saying Julis is a bad character but this is the truth. They didn't do her justice by trading in precious plot time for worthless fan service. She had the potential to be a much more thought out character but already in episode 1 the first thing you see is ass and tiddies.
This character had a miniscule character arc of like two episodes then became a one-dimensional big titted oppai loli moeblob. The character and everyone who likes her are perfect examples of what's wrong with light novels.
Ayato gets better after volume 4. By that time he is more involved in his personal goal of finding his sister, but of course he's still open to help the girls out.
Julis spends most of her time training with Ayato after episode 4. She softened up after he came to her aid in episode 4, but she keeps it rather strictly to a partner dynamic. Her dere moments are few and in-between, and she quickly straights up when she thinks she has gone too far, anyways.
Until after episode 4, she flustered because she is a maiden, not because she wanted MC's D. You are mistaking common girly behavior for wanting the D. She didn't knew him well enough or had feelings for him yet. Even post episode 4, most of her scenes are strictly comrades with some dere on the side. The ratio is no lie.
She is pretty close to being a Houki.
>This shit again
Not as bad as this and as far as my memory goes, she doesn't try to kill him after she actively lusts after his dick
First it was an accident, second she was just so overjoyed about getting her handkerchief back that she was almost in tears yet she attacks him? And then proceeds to fall in love with him? The writing is absolutely atrocious.
No she didn't. You are such a goddamn troll. Aside from a bit of hothead angry talk, she was reasonable and understood the MC's explanation. The reason she insisted on the duel was to save the MC from being punished by the disciple committee.
Should I pick this back up?
Of the three battle harem school series, I dropped antimagic on the first episode, Asterix on the 2nd, and never picked up Rakudai.
Then in the last week I ran out of stuff to watch and finished up Rakudai and then Antimagic.
How does asterick compare? Better? Worse?
>was an accident
She didn't know that at the time.
>so overjoyed about getting her handkerchief back that she was almost in tears yet she attacks him?
Two different matters. She was sincerely thankful that she got her handkerchief back, but she can't let the fact a male student was peeping. She carried out proper procedure that girls do in that dorm when male students try to peep on them.
>then proceeds to fall in love with him?
That didn't happen in the same episode nor has it happened yet in all of S1. Quit trolling.
That doesn't support your statement, troll. She belated him out knowing it wouldn't kill him. You should know that from watching or reading the damn series.
I really only watched it because I am morally obligated to watch anything I download music from. But if you do plan to there is the lesbian incest couple that makes it slightly worth while. Otherwise there's nothing good about it.
I see your Ernesta and raise an Irene. Both are great though
>Stellafag salty because his girl isn't better than Julis
Completely untrue. She is very consistent, the most consistent character in the whole show. It's not unusual for character to have multiple facets to their personality and Julis has that. She can be playful, can tease and dabble in banter in small amounts, serious, angry, disciplined, fatter when trying to be strong, and so on. But through it all, there is one underlying constant that forms her personality that can be said to be truly her– fiercely strong-willed. We see that best when she strives to pursue her dream, which is almost all the time.
This scene was one of those going-too-far moments for her, but I'm still laughing, not sure why.
0/10 for that response that tries to make it seem like you know what you're saying.
You're far too dismissive of the fact that a character is a character and not just an action. If the actions make no sense does it make the character make no sense? Yes, unless that's just the character but in this case she's a perfectly sane girl who has plenty of sense. Which means when she does something illogical from the viewers perspective there's something wrong. Let's take a closer look shall we? We know almost nothing of her character other than she get's mad a lot, wants mc's dick, and is from some poor foreign country. The very first interaction we have is her naked, thanking mc for bringing back her handkerchief, and then blowing him up. Let's ignore the fact that she thanked him in tears, blowing someone out of a window because you're mad at them is ridiculous.
>it's that Julisfag again
>that forms her personality that can be said to be truly her– fiercely strong-willed. We see that best when she strives to pursue her dream, which is almost all the time.
Woah, sounds like every female main character in a shonen ever.
Stop trying to describe Julis as something unique, everything you said about her can be said about 90% of shone female leads
I know you are fucking around and trolling because you hate her, but come on. Even a 12 year old would be able to form their own understanding and perception of her character from just episode 1. A character who is depicted as willfully headstrong but have shown a side that isn't always that means what? That they aren't going to be completely one-dimensional. It's not a logical fault.
Don't use me for your scapegoat just cause you can't argue.
I didn't say or imply that. My argument doesn't even attempt to say she's unique. The other guy is saying she isn't consistent, but I obviously argue that she is. Step up your troll game.
bullshit, silvelink changed shit in rakudai too, if anything asterisk kept too much.
as for the source. rakudai's plot and setting is all types of moronic and the worst of the three. source and romance are two different things
I never implied or said she was. I don't even think she is flawless.
Look, you tried hard in here and failed twice already. You can't back your statement for her being an inconsistent mess, so either concede or run away without making it worse for yourself.
Interesting. I didn't know I became popular enough to some guy. I lurk more than I post; I don't think I made more than 10 posts for my opinion about the show and for Julis. I praise the director whom I think is god tier.
One of the reasons why I like Julis and praise her scenes is actually because the director knows how to make awesome scenes that have a powerful moving effect. Julis is a decent character with qualities that the director works ideally with, which is characters who can inspire those around them. We see best in Saki and Horizonm But, I never said she is unique though or make her out to be a masterpiece or something. I'm not like some other guy who is notorious for making a certain red head tsundere princess sound like the best thing that happened all of last year.
I'm getting trolled by a troll calling me a troll for giving opinions and thought-out arguments on occasions. That's nice.
To each his own.
Whatever. I don't care for internal drama.
>premise about battle entertainment
>characters doing battle things and trying to win for X reasons
Come on, nigga.
The main cast wasn't bad, but the side characters were so amusing and quirky.
I'm not saying the characters were bad but in 12 episodes barely anything happened. And barely any characters developed other than the lesbian sisters. Just when saya and kirin were talking and you think there might be different motives behind their action other than mc's dick, nope "i choose you because same sword as ayato hur dur" please stop.
>I lurk more than I post; I don't think I made more than 10 posts for my opinion about the show and for Julis
I'm pretty sure posts that contained "awe-inspiring" word were all yours too
You're just as obnoxious as stellafag or kirinfag
I thought trolls might have moved on by now. After all, a new season is just one day away. Anyways, I'll never understand why Julis spawned a few dedicated haters. She isn't groundbreaking or beyond perfection, but she is exceptional and one of the better written tsundere in recent years. She isn't violent either, that's something even "THK" can't hate her for.
>Anyways, I'll never understand why Julis spawned a few dedicated haters.
Because you say shit like
>she is exceptional and one of the better written tsundere in recent years.
There's barely any writing in the first place
I fail to see why that would trigger autistic hate. But yes, there is writing for her character and it is above average. That's better than a lot of thoughtless tsundere who is tsundere first for pandering's sake. Julis is a person with dreams and passion before she is a tsundere. Right now has a solid reason to fight that was established firmly in her arc. And she is still developing so we know there's more to come.
No. She rarely does anything outside of want the mc's dick. What writing do you see? Other than those 30 seconds of her saying she needs money for her poor country? That was her only development in all 12 episodes. The only other time she talks is if she is talking to mc about something that doesn't matter.
You have 3 posts that contains the word awe/inspiring. I hope you're not suggesting that's spamming. Since it isn't and they're essentially harmless opinions, obnoxious accusation doesn't make sense.
You sound an awful lot like the troll itt, but fine. I'll bite.
If what you say is true then episode 1-4 (her arc) that spend an actual great deal of time and focus to characterize her wouldn't have been used to develop her backstory, wouldn't have set up and show us audience her resolve and reason to fight, wouldn't have gotten angry at Lester for mocking her for not taking the Festa seriously, and WOULD have spend the time caring about getting the MC's dick instead of caring about proving herself against challengers whilst caring to leave the MC out of harms way by not getting him mixed up in her personal affairs. All of this occurred without the need for MC.
After her arc, Julis and Ayato partnered up for the Festa and her relationship with him was just as partners most of the time. Working together, building trust, training for teamwork, and so forth. And all of that was so she could win the Festa. There were very few scenes that had her going dere to want the MC's D. That isn't her main focus, it's always the Festa that is her priority.
False on all accounts, those events simply occurred so the MC would have motivation to move forward rather than Julis. Julis is a plot device used so the MC could find his sister. The first 4-5 episodes really don't show anything about Julis other than she was friends with orphans, princess, poor country, whatever. We have no idea about any other parts of her personality, or why she acts like she does. What mindset does this character have other than "me no like so me burn/get mad" Trying to win the festa to get money, alright is that all? I guess you don't need anything else but for someone who appears in all 12 episodes as a main character you'd think there would be a few more details learned about such an important chracter. She is not a well written character as there is little writing about her. Sure you can say the festa is her main point but you could also say the same thing about living, clearly living is more important to her than the festa right? So what now? What kind of character is she? We barely know anything about any of the characters except the absolute base.
They're not false. I took events that actually happened. You can't just say NO and think that's it. Prove to me Ayato has overwhelming influence on Julis' character and that he makes her want the D all the time like you imply.
Julis isn't a plot device. If anything, Ayato is the plot device. He is the one who moves around Julis. It typically should be the other way around, but not here. As one anon said, Julis feels more like the MC than Ayato does. She moves the story, Ayato is along for the ride, true since he does ride Juli's flow. He reason he gets worked up and active is because of Julis.
Are you a child? The show doesn't need exposition to explain to you why she acts the way she does. First off, the story is far from over but we know quite a lot about her personality through the way she behaves, talks, treats others, specific mannerisms, and idiosyncrasies shown by the way she carries herself. What more do you need than the basic backstory, reason that powers her motivation that drives her to be so determined and fierce. She isn't joking around and dislikes it when people think she is, but she isn't a pompous princess either. All of that we learn from seeing her personality in a natural state. There are many characterizations like that for her in the show. And that's not even going into the development she went through with Ayato that made her start to change by opening up to him.
You are trying too hard to create arguments for the sake of arguments in order to make her sound incomplete. Do you need to know everything about her life and require her to have objectives that doesn't have things to do with the main plot? Ridiculous.
If Ayato wasn't there Julis would probably be dead, he's saved every one of them pretty much. You can't just say YES and be right. I have proved that he overwhelms her influence, because if he wasn't there she'd have lost her battles. You sound like the child here if you can't understand something as basic as this. Yeah we know what we see, that's pretty obvious but since we haven't seen much else other than her 5 second backstory and and her eating a humburger while lusting after MC every second of the day it's hard to really understand her character.
>Guy accidentally peeps on her
>Gets handkerchief and tears in grateful
>Tries to kill him
>Repays him after for getting her handkerchief and then falls in love with him
Great writing there guys, I must say i'm impressed. And by the way she carries herself do you mean walking around being angry at nothing constantly? She seems like a happy kid in the flashback so I kinda have to wonder what happened. Natural state of personality you say? What is natural about her state of personality? The only part of her personality is the tsundere part that wants MC's dick. How long does someone need to know someone else to fall in love? I don't know but considering she was going to kill him just a day earlier I'd say a fraction of a second with no real reason at that. How did she develop by "opening up to ayato" because she seems like the same person, just wants the D and gets flustered. It's honestly the same story with all the characters.
>Muh sob story
Then they just want his dick. I don't think a complete character is one that you have not seen have a different reaction to anything or even talk about anything important, share opinions, ideals, or whatever else makes a character a character rather than some generic doll with no real traits.
Ouka is the best main girl character to come from the three series last season.
Maybe against the puppet guy in episode 4, but before that? No. At worst she would be hurt in the first episode. But none of that matters. You're supposed to explain why Ayato has influence on her character that distracts her character from being anything other than wanting the D. This argument you are trying to spin is illogical and completely strays from your point.
First it was 30 seconds and now 5. Your exaggerations to diminish her is getting worse. To get facts straight, her arc spent over 3 minutes total to tell Juli's story, why she is here, and why she wants to win the Festa so badly. Not that amount of time matters when what's important is the execution and writing, which I might add is consistent and doesn't have plot holes in them.
>Great writing there guys
I knew you were the troll in here. Other people have already called you on that kill and falls in love with him right after crap. I should add that you are a complete retard for summing up their entire relationship based on their first encounter, which is not like how you falsity it as at all. Their real relationship doesn't begin until episode 3, and Julis certainly isn't in love with him yet. She only started to warm up after episode 4 for a common, but believable reason (is a plus in writing) by coming to her aide, sympathizing with her, by saving her, and being a person who is worthy to be her partner.
I'll amuse you a bit more. How she opened up? By connecting with him. Ayato sympathizes with her desire to protect what she wants because Ayato too wants to protect what he wants. That's one basic way to connect with a person. Most of their topics that they discuss when they're together have nil to do with harem antics and much less D chasing affections. Instead, what we get is related to the Festa, small talk about personal things, sharing thoughts/opinions, or it's about their training.
I'm done. Enjoy yourself.
Ouka is a decently written character, but she has a bit of baggage from melodrama tropes that brings her down a notch. Imo, she's close behind Julis
The way she gets over the melodrama, interacts with others, and how we visibly see a change in her vindictive personality puts her a league over Julis.
The melodrama is way less pronounced and in this case, understandable given her circumstances that are completely different.
Ouka is still hostile to Mari, but she have soften up a lot to Takeru. Ouka can be said to have past the mid-point of the race near the end of the race while Julis began the race not so long ago. Not a very fair comparison if you go by distance of their progression to the MC. Julis has more prioress too beyond volume 3, so you'll have to go by the novels and not the anime since Asterisk S1 adapted 3 volumes and but Antimagic adapted 5 volumes, anime original notwithstanding.
Fair point since Asterisk's 2nd cour hasn't aired yet but an adaptation is still an adaptation. Even by Volume 3, Ouka made accommodations to prioritize her comrades over fulfilling her duty when she had no actual obligation to go save Ikaruga. She only remains hostile to Mari because she still has yet to actually fulfill her goals and the stigma of getting over family's death is still no light matter.
