What did you think of the first episode, /a/?
>medieval fantasy battle harems are tired as fuck
>futuristic mech battle harems are tired as fuck
>LET'S COMBINE THEM
There are other settings, Japan.
Why not some kind of Aztec/Inca shaman battle harem where you could summon quetzalcoatl or some shit?
You could have cute tribal girls too.
I think the adaptation is pretty well given the source material. Good thing that the anime closely portrays the original art without glaring QUALITY. Airi and Krul best girl desu sempai.
Nah m8, that's Blue. She looks 2nd best though and her mecha looks nice.
It's pretty fun and enjoyable, as I would expect from the Twintails artist who has a knack to work on light novels with a lot of antics and delicious fap.
Of course I'll watch for Lisha and Krul anyways
This looks dumb.
>people actually think this is better than Phantom World
what did they mean by this?
I only checked this out because of the Bahamut in the name, but other than dragon-looking mecha suits, which are fucking stupid, this has nothing to do with Bahamut at all.
>lmao jk guys, we actually have assault riffles
>Implying it needs fixing
Don't fix what isn't broken.
either give each of the girls a male partner, or give the MC characteristics that would make the girls competing over one male's love understandable.
or have atleast some males hit on the main girls without acting like doujin rapists or a retard.
>give the MC characteristics that would make the girls competing over one male's love
That won't work because the main audience of these show can never self insert into that.
His characteristics are that he is the MC.
Generic as fuck but the female designs are great.
Only going to watch for this cutie beauty.
Did you not listen to the episode?
The guy in Lux's dream flashback (probably the Black Hero from the coup) said his suit was named Bahamut (and it's very implied that suit is what Lux's black sword summons. How he got it is a mystery. However, the dude in the flashback looked like Lux (what few details were shown, anyways). So, maybe the Black Hero is some kind of evil persoanlity Lux has (and that whole conversation happened on some kind of spiritual plane like what usually happens when a character has some kind of evil spirit/personality inside them) and that using the Bahamut carries the risk of the evil personality taking over
Lux has an evil alternate personality that comes out when he uses the black sword. Am I right?
I know that, but I'm just listing stuff that could possibly make it entertaining for people other than your average japanese otaku.
Not that I have much of a problem with it, the girls look damn good here atleast.
The mechas are fucking great in this.
>main girls actually goes from tsundere to full dere-dere in one episode
>already blushing at him, showing him her midriff and vagina bones and asking him to call her by her name
And I thought Lisesharte couldn't get any more perfect. I'm not sure if my heart
and dickwill be able to survive those 12 episodes.
I like the white and light blue colors
Anon, Lux is the cutest girl.
Why is this shit tries to copy Utena?
Let alone failed attempt of "Utenish" song in OP, all along with "revolution" rhyme and attemps at Utena tunes and visuals in OP parodying Utena scenes and visuals?
Yeah, should have just been a normal co-ed school.
Plus Lux as a kid was more interesting for me personally. For some reason, a lot of volume one really fleshed out his back story more than the first girl.
Lux has to be gay.
Rip off maybe, but it's better. Then again that's not hard to accomplish.
Please god no. Then again, they might translate it faster than him at this rate.
I just rechecked, and it did prologue and first four chapters. Three chapters and an epilogue left to first volume. Quite a lot was cut, like MC engaging in wacky chase scene after the bath.
>MC's first kiss
Laura kissed Ichika due to her misunderstanding about japanese customs, Krul kissed Lux then tongued him cos she want him as her man.
IS3.0 is already better that its predecessor.
Lizsharte > Krulcifer > Airi > Celestia > Philphie
Magika's translator is pretty damn fast.
Don't have to deal with RL drama too.
I mean sure we have issues with having to pay to jews, translation being wonky but let's be honest, it's pretty much the same thing plus there's translator-editor drama, the entire suck e-peen thing, and also the entire "we'll just drop it even if you guys donated for the laptop that we bought".
Meanwhile, publishers don't give a crap if the translations are not exactly that great. They'll just translate it, edit it, sell it, and move on.
Unless of course they drop the series because of crap sales.
Setsuna prioritizes Vanadis first and his editor is slower than his translating.
He is also genuinely a French native citizen so Japanese to French to English is probably how he does things.
Meanwhile, other LN translators are from Singapore, Hong Kong, etc
So I suppose Krul is going to be introduced in those 3 chapters? If that's the case, 2 episodes per volume isn't that bad, I guess. Although they'll probably extend it later on, since there are only 5 volumes, or so I've heard.
They're gonna adapt 5 volumes, but there's 7 out.
Why are they just showing off their asses, I mean I get this, its a harem or something right?
But why so just...OUT THERE. I'm a guy who likes at least some type of censorship for some lewdness.
But by god, these are just sluts. They're fucking sluts and I can't even get into it because of this.
Come'on, fanservice doesn't have to be this forced.
So Im not an expert of the Japanese language but I can't help but feel like given how they actually say it Lux is supposed to be Lucas
Aren't there also digital versions of LN too? Isn't that what Code Zero did when he was translating DxD back in the day?
Man, I wish he'd use his quack job Wyvern more than Bahamut or not use Bahamut for an entire volume.
The translator said he's gonna start it back up when he finishes the last 2 vols of Asterisk before they get taken down.
I do too, but the first episode despite being rushed wasn't really that bad. I can only hope the BD's add extra scenes instead of small fanservice specials.
You want something even flatter than that?
Here's the problem though: while Setsuna has a decent pace in translating stuff, even when he's already a manager or some shit in his blog, his editors are slow as fuck.
It's an evil older brother, isn't it?
If Lerche keeps the budge intact, there could be some pretty fucking cool battle scenes.
Older bro overthrew the empire using the forbidden dragon
New Princess got the tramp stamp that'll make her Bahamuts vessel
Bro gave little bro the sword and set everything in motion until the time is right and he can control bahamut
so basically Kawaii Shingeki bahamut meets Infinite stratos
What I think of the first episode?
Well I guess one word sums this up nicely....DROPPED.
Not wasting another damn 30 minutes of my time on this cheap bullshit, the animation sucked, these girls just want dick, no type of story.
Literally >Pick a girl and self-insert fuck
This is pandering garbage with fanservice so damn pushed at the viewer that asses are in my face.
You can't just show me titties and ass and expect me to be a dumbass person an just say "welll you know this ISSSSSS good".
No fuck this shit, Dropped like a fucking bad habit.
I'm getting familiar vibes from this design.
She's so darn cute. I want to take this small girl home to do speakable and unspeakable things.
Her voice makes me cum.
>Js06 will never pick up your favorite untranslated novel.
Nii-san already dug out a monster controlling horn, Dragrides being from lost technology I guessing he's looking for the "king of the dragons" or something to manipulate all the other dragrides.
Generic between generic.
Not that I surprised or something I knew it already.
All this shows will gain a lot if they tried to be slightly different, if you want to make a highschool battle harem...well, thats fine, but its really necessary follow every single trope in the book?
Not asking for something revolutionary, just being able to difference them would be enough
>b-but t-those aren't real b-books!!
>amerifat damage control
>Not a giant ass fish
fuck you Final Fantasy
Clock has returned. Now I have a damn good reason to keep watching.
>MODS ARE LANDWHALES
The hunt is harder than I thought.
>Bringing up Americans for no reason
>Only Americans can dislike gutter trash like LNs
>A book is a set of written, printed, illustrated, or blank sheets, made of ink, paper, parchment, or other materials, fastened together to hinge at one side.
Just admit you are too lazy to read anything, instead of applying damage control to your retarded posts.
>Only Americans can dislike gutter trash like LNs
Not really, let me fix that for you.
>Only Americans are so lazy that they can't be bothered to actually use their brain and read anything besides shitposts on 4chin
>Defending his garbage hobby this badly
>Getting this triggered from shitposting on 4chan
Dibs on 9
>Defending his laziness and/or mental problems this badly
>Getting this triggered from one post calling out amerifats for being lazy fucks
Oh wait, I can post smug 2d sluts as well.
This show sucked so much dick in the first episode that I'm not even giving it the damn "5 episode rule" before calling it quits.
I gotta say, out of all the harem anime I've seen (and honestly harem is the only genre I like) this show does it the worst.
These girls have no personality other than their hair color. I'm sticking to To Love Ru Darkness.
This is just vaginabones, the show isn't it?
Aren't you getting tired from samefagging the same response every minute? It's obvious by the way, so please stop, you're only shaming yourself.
A decent attempt at bait anon, but try to get more creative next time.
i'm starting to get really tired of generic battle haremshit, i had to force myself to watch all of the first chapter, even though i've eaten shit like world break and asterisk whole with no major issues.
I fear i won't be able to shitpost and participate in waifu wars anymore, what do?
your shitposting will only get better from hereon out
>He thinks we're samefagging
Sure, france-kun. Everything east of germany is free of muslims, so stay mad while enjoying muslim cock in your ass.
Let me guess, you'll reply with something along the lines of "implying eastern europe is better than muslims" or "implying that's still europe". Fuck off.
>A decent attempt at bait anon, but try to get more creative next time.
How am I baiting? Because I have a different opinion? I didn't fucking like it and gave a reason why.
Stop acting like a child and calling bait to every person who disagrees with your headcanon.
Why do people keep making this shitty shows? What drives a japanese author to think "Oh yeah, I'll pick this super generic setting and do 0 shit to make it even a little more original, that'll be great"?
Are japanese authors only interested in getting money for writing the same shit as everyone else? Isn't there anyone who wants to write because they enjoy it?
>I fear i won't be able to shitpost and participate in waifu wars anymore, what do?
>Are japanese authors only interested in getting money for writing the same shit as everyone else?
Wow retard you think? Why should they try some different shit and have the possibility of failing and losing their fucking comfortable lives? /a/ isn't this stupid all of you would do the same shit if you were in their shoes stop acting like you would be any different.
Look at this guy, so fearful of being trolled, other people's opinions are all bait.
You sure you aren't the troll here? 4chan is for 18 and up kid.
I don't know, anon, I love writing (even if I never tried making money out of it) and I can't even comprehend how someone who enjoys doing it too would be okay with writing generic shit that doesn't present any sort of challenge and makes you feel empty as fuck.
If you are a jew who is only interested in writing because you just want an easy way to make a lot of money, I guess this sort of thing would be okay, but it's pretty sad anyway.
I bet these people would watch a show with just fanservice, literally just fanservice. No plot, no type of story. Literally just ass and titties animated and call it the best anime they ever watched. Ironically speaking, they probably would.
Ever heard of taste?
so is this show any better than last seasons battle harems?
Cause I don't think anything is going to top anti magic for a while
>I don't know, anon, I love writing (even if I never tried making money out of it) and I can't even comprehend how someone who enjoys doing it too would be okay with writing generic shit that doesn't present any sort of challenge and makes you feel empty as fuck.
This new thing called a pay check. You're not always gonna have the chance to work on a passion project
They can write all the fuck they want dude, as long as they can feed themselves. Why take a risk if the industry gives 10 shits about change. I mean come on is not like LNs are highly regarded either.
Yes I watched Valkyrie Drive, what are you going to do about it faggot?
Harem shows are just getting worse and worse each time they make something new.
I know that they not have much of a choice, but I don't know, is it really that hard to be a little original?
I'm not talking about trying something completely different and new that sets itself apart from all the generic shit, but they could at least try to make things a little more interesting and original within the boundaries of the genre.
Shit like Index, for example. It might be filled with cliches and a lot of generic shit, but at least Kamachi tried to make things a little bit different.
>You just at her smile...
>Krul best girl.
Down voted tbhfam
Your kind of post doesnt promote discussion and should therefore be buried
If you want to shitpost then go on 4chan /a/, /r/anime is a place for friendly discussion and I would like to keep it that way
Can't really speak to untranslated volumes. So far as what's translated, I'd consider it anti feminist. Sure there was an evil male patriarchy that was cartoonishly evil, but it got destroyed by a guy and women just took credit. In the years since crushing evil patriarchy too, the women can barely get a damn thing done unless a guy is doing it for them. All I can really say in the favor of the women is at least they come around fairly fast instead of being bitches for an extended period.
>I know that they not have much of a choice, but I don't know, is it really that hard to be a little original?
yes. actually. Even if you write a script it can go through dozens of rewrites before being produced.
It all depends on what the people funding it want
>Shit like Index, for example. It might be filled with cliches and a lot of generic shit, but at least Kamachi tried to make things a little bit different.
Look, I like Index, but even I admit that Index was just a little before the hate boom.
If it was just a fresh LN today, you'd see a lot of
>it's a MAGICAL SCHOOL SETTING how original
>he's the WEAKEST? amazing originality there
>oh, he sees here NAKED? where do they get those ideas from?!
>she HITS HIM? incredible, incredible
>a harem? that's originality right there
Man, you can go back to things like Shana or Kaze no Stigma that you can also find the same things, with only some minor changes
>How new are you?
Gee Im sorry I don't automatically know where to find every single stupid Japanese thing on the internet automatically.
Congratulations you win at being a weeb, for your prize here's a box of pocky you can shove up your dick
>calling anyone else a tard
>Dat moment she inserts one finger in
Doujin please Japan. My dick needs it.
Girls in this show are too flat. I prefer Infinite Stratos
You sure told me. There's actually one site where you can find all translated source materials, but I suppose you are too new to know what I'm talking about.
Stay mad normalfag-kun.
Antimagic's adaptation was pretty bad, I don't understand why it's being ranked so high when we're talking exclusively about the anime here.
But something tells me we won't be talking about plot and fights in these threads.
