Shirow gave Rikdo some ideas and lent his name for marketing.
It is basically the spiritual sequel to the Excel Saga manga.
If you haven't read the Excel Saga manga, then do so RIGHT FUCKING NOW.
Basically waiting for v3 to show up in the mailbox.
Flew under the radar for most of its 1996-2011 run. Could possibly have been bigger if Viz had put it out a year or so earlier to properly ride ADV's DVD releases. It had a notorious reduction in print numbers at volume 7 which sold for $250+ at some point.
There were some fascinating tidbits in the notes for the last volume, that the manga ran in a fairly obscure seinen magazine, but the tanks outsold it by far.
The best part is the bonus comic about Rikdo's encounter with kidney stones. He had problematic ones forcing him to go to the hospital. Except it was during a typhoon, so there were no trains and no taxis. And he wasn't dying fast enough for them to bother sending an ambulance.
So he had to walk, with kidney stones, through the goddamn typhoon.
A berserker-packin' man and a half.
>nobody on twitter is actively following the twitter page of pandora in the crimson shell
At least there are 2,7k followers.
Hashtag is #kpandora, if anybody even gives a crap about it for fanart hunting and nip fan reactions.
ED was pretty cute.
But actually, I'm not sure if this anime is that bad remembering how the ep1 of YuYuYu was.
YuYuYu started being my favorite from the ep3.
So, if a decent SoL episode is introduced, this anime can be good and popular like YuYuYu.
The battle scene didn't have its tension.
So, the main appealing point of this anime will be solely its characters.
Indeed, Nene and Cralion are cute so if they do well as a character centric anime, this anime may success decently.
I've read the manga so I knew that.
>The battle scene didn't have its tension.
The actual battle comes next episode. Depending on the production values, it could be a pretty awesome fight, with some dramatic moments and all.
It's sort of like a goofy proto-Ghost in the Shell where there's talk about all the weird transhuman shit and cyber stuff that's changing and appearing in society.
But it's mostly just goofy and light-hearted sci-fi wackiness. I think anyone can enjoy something pretty zany.
I think the problem with this is that it doesn't really seem to be for anyone. Like it's trying to go for a couple different crowds but not doing enough to really get any of them.
>couple different crowds
I don't think so in that the crowds share a huge overlap.
The concept of this anime itself has the potential to be next GuP: moe + tank or cyborg(SF) or something men prefer.
From the talking horses and white knight protecting lolis show, which was made by Studio Gokumi.
>Le studio have no settled staff outside of Kyoani or Trigger
Just because most studios have a migrant staff rate of 40 to 70% it doesn't mean that studios have no importance whatsoever.
Nope. Even if it's an original, the owners are always the production committee and whoever is listed as "Original Work" in the credits.
Whether the studio is part of the committee or not is almost always a mystery.
Not, they don't.
>I thought the series was an original anime.
It is, but it's own by Takahiro and the companies funding his multimedia project.
>Normally, those belong to the producing studios.
No, they are owned by the head of the production committee, usually a large funding company like Aniplex (Sony). Aniplex own Madoka, for example. And Warner Bros Japan owns Shirobako, to name another one.
Does it have any importance though? When it's different people and different quality. What can you expect from them? What does the name even represent then? If they made new studio for every season it would be the same.
For me its quite easy to identify a Gokumi, P.A.Works, Doga Kobo and some others, since all those have knacks, stock animation and common resources that carry on across shows.
With stuff like JCStaff or A1 its hard as fuck.
Anyway, yeah, in my opinion it matters, sometimes.
First episode didn't wow me, aside from the transformation sequence, which made me question my openness to robot sexuality.
>end card by Kenichi Sonoda
I'm for it.
>watashi sonna shumi ha...
What did she mean by this?
This art style looks familiar. Is it by the same person responsible for that one OVA about the lesbian lolicon alien trying to spread yuri across the world that came out a few years ago?
>Lux accidentally trespasses in a female dormitory's bathing area, sees the kingdom's new princess Lisesharte naked
Some really original plotting there, then. Think I'll just look out for the stitches.
The thing that is really keeping this show down is the scene direction, without the awkward cuts this would be much better.
Eh, I don't know anon, I just don't know. I'd say this does have a shot at least avoiding the flopping.
Did you ever read the Excel Saga manga or wonder what would happen if Shirow Masamune came up with a magical girl show?
It's fun, but suffers from lack of budget.
Huh? I'm pretty sure Dandelion was a lot more popular than these other shows.
My first thoughts
Well this looks like its gonna be the yuri show of the season.
Oh, so the horrible saturation wasn't Funi's fault.
If she's also a human stuck in a toaster, why does she have an owner? Isn't that literally slavery?
Faggot tripshit has his levels completely wrong.
The show's website said Clarion is a robot with a body like Nene's. Said owner is probably just lying to manipulate the grill.
The idea that Clarion might be just severely dehumanized by going through something nasty, ending up in that body and being science'd by Uzal is kind of intriguing, but I don't think this is that kind of show.
I liked it. It was cute and funny. Probably helps that I was just expecting cute cyborg girls doing cute things with yuribait, And that's what I got.
Also, to anyone saying this is the worst first episode of the season, check Divine Gate. Just a couple of minutes of that should tell you that's the real shitfest of the season.
I'll take cute girls any day over teenage angst and edgefest
> to anyone saying this is the worst first episode of the season
I'd tell them to watch more anime and to get some taste. Not only Divine Gate, but Active Raid, and this is only the second day
Active Raid has the potential to be the Patlabor of our generation.
Would you, /a/?
Inside a roboko?
>What is the appeal of this anime? Just watched first ep, it was boring.
I acted similiar for every show with male MC playing harem this season, thing is people like different things for no reason.
>implying Active Raid is bad
>Probably helps that I was just expecting cute cyborg girls doing cute things with yuribait, And that's what I got.
This and the manga's authors were the reason I had a look the first episode. It wasn't all bad, really. I need to watch something like this anyways since Yuru Yuri is over.
The hag is kind of hot though. And voiced by Atsuko Tanaka. I can deal with this.
I hope this part is different every week.
This is what this season was lacking.
>implying ConRevo was bad
>implying I'm not actually looking foward to the second cour
Thanks for proving you're retarded
>What is the appeal of this anime?
Lewd robo Chino and Cocoa ft. Twoearle adventures on a tropical Academy City?
I've never seen someone so intent on proving how shit their taste is. Enjoy Gate or Schwarzemarken, maybe those will be more up your alley.
>Concrete was nonsense
Stick to OPM.
I keep hearing people on /a/ say that you should always download 1080p versions of Funi rips because something something technobabble something something they're always superior to 720p even when it's a literal upscale, and I have no reason not to trust anonymous strangers on the internet.
>tfw this is my "Airing" folder
>it's only the second day
Muh animation and butthurt retard who heard Shirow was involved with the manga's creation and decided to not investigate any more and expect another GiTS
When that's wrong for multiple reasons
1) The synopsis and anyone who read the manga (Hell, even the short trailers) already told you this wasn't going to be anything like that
2) The manga is actually written by the guy who did Excel Saga's manga. Shirow just came up with the original idea for the Excel Saga guy, who was the one to turn Masamune's idea into an actual story
>being so butthurt you have to prove that a show is bad by resorting to the fanbase including a retarded tripshit (When all that proves is that you are an special kind of retard when you found ConRevo nonsensical and even a retarded tripshit could follow it. Which means you're even more retarded than the tripshit)
>Alright chums, I'm back, let's do this!
I'm surprised that someone would actually think this is worst of the season. One of the only ones so far I thought was fun to watch.
Something about it appeals to my nostalgia though. The characters and overall atmosphere make the show feel more like something from late 90s or early 00s rather than a current one.
I love how time play in a show causes people to feel intelligent when they get it
it really wasn't hard to follow, it was just boring, and the different timelines didn't do enough to be interesting.
stop thinking you're intelligent for "getting" conrevo, it was nothing special.
>Excel Saga writer doing story and art
>Ghost in the Shell writer doing concepts
>Kenichi Sonoda did the endcard
It's definitely a child of the 90s even if the manga is only a few years old.
I insult your intelligence because you called ConRevo nonsensical when even a retarded tripshit could follow it. Which proves you're even more retarded for not being able to do what even a retarded tripshit can do
I'm not acting like I'm intelligent retard. ConRevo was pretty simple. So what does that say of the people who don't get it and can't follow such a simple show?
Also, if you thought it was boring , I tip my fedora to your absolute prententiousness
Advanced tab -> Color levels -> Contract
>Also, if you thought it was boring , I tip my fedora to your absolute prententiousness
it was boring, it didn't do jack shit entertaining
it wasn't the worst show ever or anything it's just not good enough for me to care about another 12-13 episodes
This is pretty much AOTS
I'm not even joking
>In b4 >>>/u/
Was she infected with the gay virus while she was offline?
>girl holding her skirt up to show her private parts to another girl
>girl guiding that same girl's hand into her intimate chambers
>older woman observing them and coaching them through the experience
They built an anime out of all my kinks.
>ConRevo wasn't entertaining enough for mature viewers such as mysefl
>implying entertainment needs to come from the show having certain pieces on it
>acting like you're above ConRevo and it's fanbase
>>ConRevo wasn't entertaining enough for mature viewers such as mysefl
nigga that's not what I implied at all
I just thought they didn't do jack shit with what they had
I came in hoping it'd be something close to samurai flamenco, just in terms of being exciting, but it got trapped up in boring ass characters with a time play mechanic that made the entire plot obvious from episode 5
Why is the lion Sun everywhere?
They fucked up their own logo despite getting it right everywhere else.
everyone was too one note and there weren't any good character interactions to cover up their one note characters.
Production quality ain't the best and being forced to funishit pisses me off but I liked the episode anyway.
I like happy and wacky sci-fi settings, specially since we live in a time where edgy cyberpunk is the standard.
Looks fine to me.
>I'm laughing my ass offing my ass off
You guys better rewatch the ending until you can say all the numbers from the beginning without looking.
You just have to pause the ED, but that's cheating.
Why not just adapt Ragnarock City?
>MC is a cute girl that wants world peace
>she's a cute description of a daughteru
>suddenly a lesbian
For what fucking purpose?
>That was a nice episode despite lacking a little quality
>Oh I know, I'll read the manga!
>2 chapters translated
What's exactly happening here?
>Draw a boy
>Call it a girl
As long as the guns keep on coming, I think I'll brave this series.Mangafags, does the manga has more guns?
All shows even a bit similar to Madoka had flopped or underperfomed since 2012. There is no such a thing as a Madoka bandwagon, if anything its more of a blunder as it requires the show to try hard to distance itself from PMMG
>There is no such a thing as a Madoka bandwagon
But there is. The main reason why most clones failed it's because they were utterly shit. There's copies of popular works that economically flop all the time.
Stalker isn't even working so we can't predict shit.
But hey, maybe meme magic will save it.
The main thing that drives people away from a show it's the visuals. I'm really doubting this show will sell more than 1k copies.
It wasn't but it also didn't look like it ran out of budget in the first episode.
I enjoyed this first episode way more than I should have
Had its fareshare of 'quality' but the quirky characters and comedy made up for that
Who here /lesbian cyborg/?
I'm not gonna make it.
Everything I could've wanted. Super hot dark-skinned scientist, yuri, action.
>Why would they use their money to animate this? It's not their property.
I feel kinda bad for authors who get an anime for their work and the studio doesn't give a single shit about it and it ends flopping and in some cases the manga gets cancelled.
The studio's not to blame for that. The one at fault is the publisher. They're the ones funding the adaptations, and if there is a lack of budget, it's their fault.
The studio is just haired to animate.
I know but there must be cases where the studio has an average-to good budget and still fucks up great time because they were busy focusing on something else or plainly just didn't care.
I think those cases must be pretty minimal. The projects that get a good budget are just a few.
Of course, there are studios that can do a better job with a limited budget than others. But they usually do it by treating their workers like slaves (specially the animators).
Yeah, he says in the afterword that some stuff for Pandora made it into Arise. Kurtz was one thing. Rikudo's version of Kurtz is male.
Cyborg pantsu is best pantsu.
The silly sight-gags, the cyberpunk, the character design and the soundtrack all make it seem like something from an earlier era. It's got the "feel" of something like Dominion Tank Police or Project Ako.
I'm actually really pleased, I wasn't expecting too much but it just makes me happy to watch.
>Robutts and yuri '
Thank you sir, may I have another
I love easygoing wacky shows like this.
They just warm up my heart.
And they said there wouldn't be cute girls doing cute things.
