It's out.
>>
Is there already a subjectless thread, or does no one care?
>>
>>136210027
Probably the latter. There wasn't much hype for this.
>>
>>136210106
Too bad, I can't watch now, so I can't start a discussion.
Just opened the thread to look at in a few hours.
>>
>>136209911
What is this? TV? Movie? OVA? Original?
>>
>>136210192
Movie
>>
Doesn't really look terribly interesting.
>>
>>136210106
>There wasn't much hype for this.
Figures, if it isn't part of a pre-existing franchise, seasonal anime, or has a few names attached to it that lets /a/ shitpost about it, no one will care or know about it, sadly. /a/ is more about the epic meme and flaming wars than discussing anime it seems.
>>
>>136210192
According to MAL
it's a 1h7min long movie
It's anime original
>MAL
Fuck off. MAL is great as a database. It's everything related to the community that sucks (So reviews, recs, the forums and scores)
>>
>>136210309
It's dark mahou shoujo. Everyone likes those.
>>
>>136210426
It is pretty obvious that they are channeling Madoka vibes with this.
But that doesn't make it interesting, quite the opposite.
>>
>>136210393
Who cares about forums and reviews anyway? I've never once read a review from there or ANN in my lifetime.

Anyway, currently downloading.

Thanks for the infos. An original movie? Fuck yeah I'll watch it
>>
>>136210497
Here come the Madokafags.
>>
Have some armpit /a/.
>>
Also since this is a movie, is 1080p worth it?
>>
>>136210564
I don't think those are necessarily Madofags, rather newfags who never heard of dark Mahou Shoujou before Madoka.
>>
>>136210573
No, I dislike Madoka, which is why I'm not going to bother with this since it looks very similar.
>>
>>136210653
Is there a difference?

That was my question.
I just tried 1080p, still downloading. I hope it isn't upscaled.

I don't like how generic and bland it looks. Does it have at least good plot?
>>
>>136214553
Plot summed up :


Two girls are living ignorant of the world.
New girl shows up.
She shows them how to enjoy the world and they become best friend.
Shit happens.
New girl is somehow related to the two.
This relation allows new girl to sacrifice herself so the other two can live.
Oh, and everything is in virtual world and all humans are already dead.
>>
>>136210393
>>136210317
You two need to calm your autism.
>>
>>136214873
so it's a SOL with Matrix agents as little magic girls?
>>
>>136215139
Well, the SOL part is just 3 minute montage in the middle.
>>
I wish the ending was a happy one
>>
Just finished the movie, it was alright. Too bad they didnt go all the way and deleted themselves too, ending the whole virtual world altogether and show a humanless earth. If you got a good number of series watched under your belt, I dont think this will be impressive or anything.
>>
At least we killed the Matrix bitch.

You can tell they're trying their fucking hardest to make this resemble Madoka as much as possible without Inu Curry. At least traditional magical girl is still alive in Precure now that the genre has largely gone over to gloomy pretentious bullshit. Still better and more cohesive Magical Girl movie than Rebellion in about half the time and not everybody is always speaking in cryptic and unnatural sounding Urobuchi dialogue with abstract art floating all over the place
>>

Just close friendship. But it's pretty good anyway.
>>
>>136216243
unfortunately I don't think so

It would be much better if they went full Madoka. It all falls flat because it looks like a super generic magical girls/SoL show.

It was story about friendship and learning how to feel human emotions. It really has nothing to do with Madoka.

I really liked this movie, felt like Talos Principle with cute girls. Is humanity even capable of making a multiverse that detailed though? Capturing and processing that much data seems beyond the scope of what's physically possible.

I thought this being similar to talos/soma too.

I think they just made AI then singularity took care of the rest.
>>
Plot makes no sense.
Girls are cute.
Animation looks cheap for movie standards the KyoAni haremshit looks way better than this movie.

Also, bringing up sad scenes just to make the spectator feels some kind of emotion is stupid.

Dorothy is annoying as fuck, just like Natsumi in NNB, Yozora from Haganai and other characters played by same VA.

7/10, maybe I'm being generous.

She probably worked at Google or some other major tech company and took all the credit, and human infrastructure could last a while with drones repairing everything.

>>136218167
I assume the computer needed to render data so it could be processed and evaluated for beauty. The programs primarily interact via graphics instead of raw code because if a human needed to do high level debugging on a complex system like that then a graphical interface would be easiest to understand, and it'd probably be what the programs are trained to recognize as well.

Bit OT and I am not him but I have some bug(?) or something that makes captchas impossible to solve once I have posted too much. I only happens after I posted around 50 times or something a day but it causes those streetsigns to appear and they aren't solvable anymore. Switching to the other captchas does nothing, they're unsolvable as well when this shit started.

The only thing I can do when this happens is stop posting or switching to a different browser (I usually use Chrome at the moment).

There was source material?
>>
I liked it a lot. Plot was kinda doofy but it was incredibly stylish and fun, Ishihama has a great style. Characters are cute and very expressive. Them exploring the human world was wonderful. My biggest complaint was the amount of expository speech, I feel like the story would've been better off maybe a bit more vague, or perhaps not delivered so explicitly? Like the entire musical sequence conveyed a lot, and it was visually exciting and fast paced without needing words to it. When you have a character just ramble off plot points it slows things down a bit.

>>
>>136225658
Completely original. Director(or was it producer?) said they crowdsourced hundreds of creators to come up with ideas to fill up a movie and they narrowed it down to a handful at last year's Singapore AFA.

Has the OST come out yet? I've got the ED or OP, not sure which, but what I want is the insert song.

It was nice, but definitely would have worked a lot better as a TV series since the build up to Remo's death was very small. Didn't really feel attached to her character at all.

>All they have to do is not go into unnecessary details and they're golden, but no they had to mention fucking viruses and anti-viruses.

What's the problem with that? It's there as an easy way to illustrate that Dorothy and Dual exist to fight "evil" but their concept of what's "evil" can be rewritten by Remo, who is the actual "evil". It's good.

PonyCanyon USA is asking for people to help promote this movie at cons and stuff.

Should I sign up for the gig? Requirements include dressing up as one of the characters. Compensation is free passes, hotel, & you get to touch a JP guest maybe
>>
>>136234734
Fuck off.
>>
>>136234734
Expect not a lot of organization or proper communication from staff who likely won't speak English very well or at all. Though that'll depend on which convention, I guess.

Probably still worth the compensation if you were going to go anyway.

I didn't really know about the movie before this. It didn't really generate much hype in Japan even. I have my apprehensions that it'd be a disappointing gig when I could've spent the time promoting another show.
>>
>>136235172
That would be because no one bothered to promote it at all in the west really. Also, because of what I said >>136234483 I don't think it's going to really gain any more hype.

What con were you interested in?

Take this with a grain of salt though, because I work for Pony Canyon (Ponycan USA is just a section within the JP company).

This was a pretty good movie. It didn't go unnecessarily in-depth with the technical side and focused on the characters, and delivered a nice story that really pulled at the heartstrings.

I've heard budget tossed around as a reason, but I'm not really involved in the decision making at all, so it's hard to say.

My theory was upper JP side wanted it released asap to capitalize on the apparent popularity and recoup for the failed domestic release. Rokka was a huge hit on CR going by the streaming numbers.

So who is the best girl?
>>
My biggest gripe is the similarities between this and .hack//Thanatos Report

>Dominique de Mirabeau (ドミニク・ド・ミラボー) is the founder of mama. An ecologist from France, in 1986 she published a paper titled "On the Comprehensive Effect of Mankind on the Environment of the Earth." She predicted the complete extinction of all life on Earth within the next 1000 years if current emission trends continued. The only solution she could find for the planet to recover was to somehow cease human activity. Within ten years, these beliefs would be vindicated by the discovery of climate change in line with de Mirabeau's hypothesis, but at the time the environment was not a great concern. In 1989, Mirabeau's small following of supporters formed the organization mama, dedicated to defending their Mother Earth. Their primary objective was to find and use some means to halt the activity of mankind on the planet.

Looks like CR also posted the intro and Q&A with the director, but no one ripped it.
>>
>>136239236
Why is Dorothy so lovable? Is it those shoulders? Is it those bare backs? Or is it those cute fluffy hair of hers?
>>
>>136240540
I guess the main thing is, if the darkness wasn't a virus, why was all >>136216587 this bad stuff happening?

As I understand, this is what happened:
>mother is created to make the world perfect
>mother lets humans die out to make the world perfect, but backs them up first
>last humans try to destroy mother
>mother had a backup (remo) that is supposed to be collecting good bits of humanity to compile perfect humans
>last humans send dual and dorothy to destroy the "virus" (remo)
>dual and dorothy go around fighting what they think are viruses
>dual and dorothy meet remo
(I'm guessing she just appeared because dual met the backup of real-life-remo's grandma)
>they but don't realize she is the "virus" they are after, until remo remembers and tells them
>they destroy remo, if they didn't, they and all the backups would be deleted

But I still don't really get the difference between ViOS and Mother, or why the format and the end was happening, or even what this giant thing is in this picture.
Maybe I'm too tired to be thinking this hard, I started for the cute girls, I'll read the rest of the thread and try to figure it out in the morning.
>>
>>136241721
The darkness/bad stuff happening, as well as the giant thing in your picture, are humans who had their precious beautiful things (materialized as glass flowers) taken away from them by Remo.

The last humans didn't send Dual and Dorothy, they were a component of ViOS from the start.

ViOS is a revolutionary operating system created by Remo's grandfather, mother.exe is a program created by Remo's mom supposedly to bring peace to the world, but that ends up exterminating humanity instead.

The reason Reno appears is just because the same "virus" that engulfs her at the start of the movie comes attack Dual and Dorothy afterwards. Nothing really to do with Dual meeting Sumire. Having been attacked by that "virus" is also the reason her memories are corrupted.

Also I was under the assumption that Dual is actually made in the image of Sumire's real life best friend from childhood, though I don't know for sure.
>>
>>136241721
Oh and the format was happening because mother.exe sensed humanity in Dual and Dorothy and she finds that threatening. Her directive was to destroy humanity, after all.
>>
>>136238871
That would have been better, honestly. The movie was already densely packed as is, no need to bring a whole other subplot into it that could fill its own whole series.

Would make the whole thing less trashy and more melancholic too.

It was really boring. Looked quite bland too. A couple of nice sequences.

Ok that cleared a ton up, I was really confused and making some dumb tired assumptions that made it hard to follow properly.

>ViOS is a revolutionary operating system created by Remo's grandfather, mother.exe is a program created by Remo's mom
This seems backwards considering Remo, a function of mother, was a core program of ViOS but I guess it's fine.
>The last humans didn't send Dual and Dorothy
It still could have been humans who launched the program, >>136244558 got the same idea, though in hindsight I could have easily been reading too much into nothing.

Anyway, thank you for the explanations anon, it really helped. I'm glad this thread is still up.

Remo isn't a core program of ViOS. She's a seperate program made by MOTHER.exe.

Not the same anon but, did you even see the pic anon posted?

Remo's line, 57:43

I think she may just have been repurposed by mother.exe?

Didn't see it, my bad. Just ignore my post.

>>136256778
Probably, ViOS had a cute girl program to begin with but mother wanted to watch it suffer.

She was a girl from the XVI century and also Sumire ancestor.

There has to be a backup of Remo somewhere. Someday Dual and Dorothy will find it and the three will be together again.

Right?
>>
>>136264545
Didn't you watch to the last second?
>>
>>136264664
I think that's a flashback of Remone with her mother (Diana) and her grandma (Sumire). Note how the city looks like London too.
>>
>>136264794
It can be a backup world too.
>>
>>136265467
I guess that's possible too.

Also, if Remone does exist as part of a backup world, then Dual and Dorothy will find her someday.

It could take a long time though.
>>
>>136265653
We can only hope so. Maybe they went to her world at the end.

I would kinda want to know how ViOS could be last hope of humanity though when there is no one left, just brain scans/memories.

Where did you get that from? Dual was the grandmother (the wife of the OS creator), Dorothy was the mother, and Remo was the daughter?

>>136267003
Dual was Sumire friend. Sumire was Remo grandmother.

>>136267003
You got it all wrong.

Dual was Sumire's friend. Sumire is Diana's mother. Diana is Remo's mother.

Dorothy was irrelevant.

It felt like the first two and last two episodes of a TV anime, with a fucking massive montage of the rest of them set to music in the middle. Why'd they choose a movie format, exactly?
>>
>>136267912
It's just short story. A hour is enough to tell it when it's not packed with filler and bad pacing issues like anime.
>>
>>136267912
Movie format was just fine. It just needed 20 more minutes to better develop their relationship.
>>
>horriblesubs
>its a movie

decent rip when
>>
>>136268023
It needed more time to develop just about everything about their characters. Stuff like Dorothy getting attached to the worlds just gets thrown at you rather than being led into at all.
>>
>>136267912
https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-02-06/d.backup-inspires-a-1-pictures-vitreous-flower-destroys-the-world-anime/.84160
The concept was a prize winner, among the awards being an animation, presumably limited to a movie. I imagine somewhere along the line the film had to be compromised to fit a shorter run time. I think the director did about as good as he could with the story considering it's only an hour long, but I feel like it could've used more time.

>>136268136
I actually thought the song bit did a sufficient job at developing the characters. Ending on her with her "parents" echos the beginning so you can tell she's now feeling the same way about it all as Dual.
>>
>>136267912
Maybe if the Garakowa staff does come to US cons like the PonyCanyonanon said, you can ask them there.
>>
>>136268136
You can show all that in 20 or 30 more minutes. There's only three main characters after all.
>>
>>136268136
I felt the part about Dorothy growing attached was decent. At first she didn't believe in "fun" but through the montage you could see she did and the scene where she witnessed a disaster also showed her becoming more attached.

Then to top it off they used the family scene.
>>
>>136268201
Maybe one day they will turn it into anime like Pleiades.
>>
>>136268347
The family scene that had no build-up or conclusion. There'd have been impact if it actually spent time showing them as characters and making the audience care about what Dorothy had to do, but because of the format it gets rushed through with the bare miminum time given to it to understand what's supposed to be important about it and nothing more. It was the same with the war and disaster concept: the most very basic lip service given to the idea, but no development or investment.
>>
>>136268728
Dorothy's family was irrelevant plot-wise. Its only purpose is to complete Dorothy's attachment to the backup world. That scene could have used a few more minutes, sure, but more than that would mess up the focus of the movie.
>>
>>136269090
Dorothy's feelings are extremely important plot-wise; her and Dual's newfound emotions pretty much ARE the plot. Emotional development doesn't work with cliffnotes. Her reaction to that world is important, but the audience has to way to emphasize with her because the movie gives us no connection to it.

The story was full of stuff like that: important scenes and developments are left orphaned rather than convincingly building up our investment in them. The writers clearly had lots of great ideas for character development and interactions, but it was too much for the format.
>>
>>136269494
We'll have to agree to disagree. I personally think the movie does a pretty good job developing the characters, and I was pretty invested with it. Heck, I was invested even in Dual's feelings toward Sumire, even though they only spent a really short scene together.
>>
>>136269706
Not that anon but I got invested into characters too. Movie could use some more time for developing them but I guess this all they could afford with the budget.
>>
>>136269869
>sorry we're out of money, stop developing the characters
the fuck are you on about anon?
>>
>>136269929
I mean they couldn't afford the movie to be longer, probably. They could develop characters more in 2h, but they did their best in 1. What's so hard to get?
>>
I'm going to have to hate Dorothy only because of her VA. It's too distinct, I've heard that voice in too many other shows and there's no way I can hear "Dorothy" the character anymore in Garakowa.
>>
>>136269869
The girls are cute and likeable, yet given the same concepts but also enough time to properly develop them, it could have been something really special and emotionally powerful. I like them and want them to be happy, but that's largely a factor of their personalities and designs rather than a close investment in their situations. The development both of the characters and the story was too jumpy for that, and smoothing it out would take either heavy cutting of good-yet-underdeveloped concepts, or a massive increase in runtime or different format altogether. The family scene is a microcosm of that - a great idea that as a longer segment or episode practically writes itself, but with the format they have gets skimmed over with the sparsest possible presentation that could possibly manage to communicate the essential concept.

It's frustrating, because it's a good movie with nice characters, and yet the writers clearly had something that could be genuinely amazing trying to get out, and it didn't.
>>
>>136270457
Well, I think it's a pretty good movie as is. Make it thirty minutes longer and it would be perfect in my book.

Longer than that would probably do more harm than good. Let alone going for a different format, which would probably require lower production values.

Dorothy is based on the image of one of Daniel's ancestors, since he is the one who created ViOS.

When did they say that?
>>
>>136270457
Only think i dislike is the "sad, emotional death" ending. I know they wanted to have some impact but those feel like cheap way to play with emotions.
>>
>>136270905
There's just too much stuff that needs more time. The development of their house, that clearly was supposed to be a core motif yet was basically relegated to the background. Seeing it destroyed should have HURT, but there was barely enough time to start thinking it looked neat. The exploration of backed-up worlds that should have been full of wonder, whimsy and character development, yet got only only single scene - not even a whole world, just one scene - outside of the montage. The threat and mystery of Mother and the truth about the outside world, both of which needed to feel like a terrible answer finally being unveiled, yet pretty much failed to exist at all until the plot needed them. Even the virus enemies didn't manage to be threatening, simply because they didn't have any time to BE threatening - they had to get in, do whatever the story needed at that moment, then get beaten up as quickly as possible.
>>
>>136271557
You would get half the audience bored to dead if the movie went around developing all that shit. Gotta keeps things tight and to the point. Develop just enough to create some emotional attachment and justify the plot.

Anyway, I don't think we will see eye to eye on this so let's just leave it at that.
>>
>>136272270
The audience would be bored to death if the fight scenes were actually threatening, or the virtual worlds that the whole story was based around and that were the cause of the main characters' gaining their humanity were meaningfully a part of the story? Really?

A story that's all about character change can't afford to be "tight and to the point". You don't get to show just the one scene where the important change occurs, with what actually builds up to it or puts its importance in context kept to the absolute minimum possible.
>>
A silly thing to do, because the main use of compression is for archiving. Shrinking something before deleting makes absolutely no sense.

I loved this. Sure it's flawed, most things are, but I feel like most of the naysayers simply didn't understand it.

I don't mean that in a wishy-washy "Who can understand true art" sense. It's a story about a broken singularity, and the writer clearly knew that. There was a whole lot of fridge horror that I'm barely seeing mention of here, like...

- That first scene with Sumire? Most of that was probably only in Dual's head, and Sumire just stood there watching her best friend betray her.

- There's probably no-one left at "layer 0", the real world. Who's maintaining their equipment? Who knows! Well, unless those real-world scenes were also real-time, but a single remaining human or two won't be able to do that.

- That backup data... Sumire died a long time before Mother was going around collecting data, so it's got to be extrapolated from historical records. The backups might be sapient, but they aren't human.

Could go on. But I won't. There was a lot in here, it was incredibly dense, and it'd take hours. I'd love to see this movie at about twice this length.

None of that is very horrific, and not explored or used at all. You don't get credit just for bringing up an idea and then doing nothing with it, and that's this movie's problem in a nutshell: cool ideas without impact or follow-through.

I understand that they were programmed solely to prevent mother from resurfacing. They were never shown existing outside of the box, so some guy with a thing for little girls probably programmed them right in before the world ended.
>>
>>136279838
I think Dual actually existed in real life, as Sumire's friend, I don't have a clue about Dorothy though.

And I don't think they were programmed for that, wasn't that just their heuristics engine?
>>
>>136279890
That would help explain why they both have strong attachments to people inside the bakups, but it seems strange that they were never shown as existing in reality, where Remo was explicitly shown as a baby and child before the system was in place.
The heuristics engine part went mostly over my head. Was it supposed to be some sort of moral code the girls had?
>>
>>136280169
Heuristic engine is a feature most modern anti-viruses have nowadays. It basically makes the anti-virus "learn" with the continuous use. Hence why they compared it with free will.

Why was Remo sent to erase the girls in the first place? If they were gone, wouldn't the box be set up to be infected by the viruses?
