7 hours until AOTS episode 2 airs. What are we expecting?
What do you mean, "expecting"? The light novels have a high quality (by amateur standards) translation available online, anyone who liked the first episode has already read through the first season by now.
>anyone who liked the first episode has already read through the first season by now
I don't see how that's even remotely correct. You're literally saying people who liked the first episode should have already spoiled the whole show for themselves
>really hate ranta because i have a cousin just like him
>see his pov on volume 2
>still hate him, but now i can tolerate him
i dunno, maybe because you are not supposed to act like a 10 year old when you are a 16 year old, overall he is just a bratty kikkawa
I wish to date Yume.
I hope Monato dies in a manner where we could shop Souls into it like Freddie.
it was a joke
boss monster was going to kill ranta, his demon was all like "go die in a hole you useless retard", then when the boss was about to deal the final blown the demon "sacrifices" himself to save him
>>that means nothing happened
No. But ending the episode where it started kind of does.
We barely got any world building whatsoever. The episode at best glanced over the premise and nothing else.
>We barely got any world building whatsoever
by world building I simply mean depiction of the world visually, what people do in it, the general "feel" of it. It has nothing to do with the the premise of why it's actually there.
This character is seriously making me consider dropping the entire show.
That whole fat tits part in episode 1 was so cringey. I hope none of that shit continues
>Mikako Komatsu is voicing one of the leads
my fucking dick just thinking about it.
does her character get
go back to save ranta after he pretty much sacrifices himself
>Mary a cute
>Choco a cute
>Renji is OP
Also Yume gets teased for being perflat for the rest of the series. Hopefully A-1 doesn't fuck up and make snide remarks and banter like a 5 minute long scene like they did in ep1
I'm enjoying the interactions of low tier PCs in a first generation MMO. I'm also enjoying all this whining from people whose best first hand knowledge of MMO fantasy is post-Panda WoW and SAO.
Its not for you, this shit will only get one season, and if you weren't immediately hooked at the end of the first episode then just drop it and don't say another word about it. Its really for me, the 1% minority who actually understands and relates to the story and who can't be bothered to explain why its a hyperaccurate take on the premise of low tier heroes in a world where anything can kill.
>it doesn't have a dumb interface, therefore it's totally different
People actually tell themselves this.
That little detail doesn't really matter, like how the detail about Jurassic Park being an amusement park story doesn't matter because its really about people trying their hardest not to get eaten alive in a hostile environment.
Its true. If you even mildly dislike it now, theres no point to watching the rest of it. You're just going to bitch about the same boring shit happening for the entire season to nobody that cares. So just spare yourself and watch something else.
>If you even mildly dislike it now, theres no point to watching the rest of it.
That's silly. The show actually has a story and things will happen. None of which was elaborated upon in the first episode.
So if you like the setting and like the premise then it's entirely reasonable to keep watching even if you didn't fancy the first episode.
more runes (simple substitution, so nothing fancy to see here, and many are still illegible)
LNfags, spoil me, please. What's the big twist in this one?
Log Horizon route:
>lol being in a game too long makes you forget irl shit lol
Angel Beats route:
>lol everyones really dead and in purgatory lol
Star Ocean 3 route:
>lol we're all really just vidya characters in someone else's game lol
Why did he have to be a priest pretending to be a warrior, why?
DEAD OR ARIV(?)E - engrish at its best
X GOLD REWARD - the numbers are all tentative
Jesus Christ, I want to sleep with her.
She looks so soft and warm.
hmmm, I missed the letters (C I G S...) around Shiroru's spell, but I don't know what they mean
I want to chill with bro goblins, drinking methand make fun of noob adventurer.
I hope so
BTW, does anyone have a list of all the avaliable classes in this world?
There are also other like Paladin
More comfy moments while struggling to kill fucking goblins.
futakuro thread: http://board.futakuro.com/jk2/res/2432348.htm
Jesus christ the visuals is boring.
You'll get your fill don't worry. His outfit was designed to show them off after all.
Control yourselves women
we are only 2 episodes in, more to come soon.
Comfy insert song.
The novel is pretty slow paced.
My worry is that they rush this and on top of that make it slow paced, but at this point, unless they really jump the shark in the next episode, I think this is fine so far.
Is this the Evangelion of the MMO genre?
That OST is godly.
This was all kinds of cruel.
The poor fucking goblin did nothing wrong.
I can't get comfy like this.
The characters still haven't caught my interest.
None of the dialogue is that good either.
Do they get any better or is this pretty much how they are? Will the inevitable suffering make them somewhat watchable?
Not that many need stiching.
Backgrounds were indeed nice, but they could use less lens flare.
That goblin scene was great, that insert song moment as well. I'm surprised that there's one this early though, if at all. I guess they're getting all they can from the Aiura director
Also, I'm really digging Haruhiro's VA. I really dig that kinda half-laugh thing he does.
Never thought I'd be upset over killing a goblin.
Fuck it all.
Impossible, do you even know what lens flare is?
I don't think it looks good either way.
That's more a trait of the director, check out the backgrounds to his other shows. Very stylish guy.
It's as slow, though this kinda rushs over things so it's slow paced and longer.
It picks up eventually and the pace starts being much faster though, it's mostly the starting part while they get gud.
Come on, why are you guys so upset over killing a goblin? These dudes live off scavenging people surely, otherwise they wouldn't roam around the forests carrying swords.
It's a matter of being the hunter rather than the hunted.
They have two milky ways on the sky? how does that work? Colliding galaxies?
Why doesn't he just steal food and shit?
Why not just learn to hunt and fish instead? Seems like a lot less work than trying to kill monsters since they're so incompetent. Also looks like there are regular jobs in town as well.
I wish there was just a single show like this where they follow the group that's not all the left overs that nobody wanted.
It feels like this would be so much more interesting if we saw shit from that white haired guy's PoV.
This bitch is so dumb. Should have went to train a whore, because all she's good for is being a cocksleeve.
they are starting a manga spinoff with the goblins.
I think the amnesia really hurts this show. Sure having blank slates is interesting but then you cut off all the engaging motivations each of the MCs have. Couldn't it have just been about an upstart group of incompetent fuckups trying their hand at adventure?
Read Tsuyokutte New Saga.
>just having out by the river trying to refill your water bottle and then get attacked by these fucking alternate world "migrants" who think they have the right to attack you for no reason
Must be what it feels like to be a European woman nowadays.
what the FUCK is up with the tone in this show? that fight was extremely heavy
Yeah, I hope it starts with some battles, midway through it takes a break to give the idea some days pass and they got kinda good, then Manato gives his motivational speech on the field, some more fights and then Hob spotting.
At least I seriously seriously hope they handle it like that.
Yes you dumbshit, the saying the word "game" part isn't just a random word they thought of, japanese have tons of english word in their language and they tell you the word they forgot is "game", how do you not get this part.
How could he make a plane if he doesn't even remember they exist?
The same way they remembered the word "geemu" without remembering what it is and remembering that the other moon was not red.
Amnesia doesn't wipe everything, it leaves traces.
>loot goes to person who delivered the final blow
Shit design tbqh. Fucking janitor scum.
But because they have amnesia, none of them are really people whose stories I want to follow. They're just sort of there trying to survive and while that's fine and all, if the show was going to be like that then they could have just omitted the amnesia part and just gave us proper ambitions. More fleshed out people than the amnesiac who just go with the flow of shit.
That's all I saved.
Everybody needs somebody to love.
It's pointless to argue with LN fans. They're fanatics. Read Overlord and try to say different opinion in Overlord threads for example. All characters are good. GOOD I SAY. It's not MMO!
>Manato likes fat tits.
It's a slow burner for sure, but I think it works for the tone they (I think) are going for. Like, in contrast to the first episode this one has this sense of melancholy throughout, and the characters are very much burdened by their tangible problems as well as their insecurities. The direction and art leads to this very atmospheric feeling, although it's certainly not how I'd have guessed it would've turned out.
Character dialogue for the most part is still weak, though.
They did a great job with that, the goblin's scream was chilling.
There's a difference between being a fanatic and not agreeing with someone who says all the characters are shit.
I'm a LNfag and while I like the characters they are seriously lacking for the most part, not insufferable in any way though.
He says it himself in the first episode, he can close wounds, but not restore lost blood.
They don't have HP, they have real bodies, so he does what he can to prevent them from weakening because of injuries.
Are these faggots even trying? 6 of them to kill one goblin, then they spend the rest of the day shopping/relaxing/eating/2 min insert song.
Holy shit nothing is happening.
This is the kinda show you marathon. Looks like its going to be a fun ride. But not waiting week by week watching hardly anything happen.
Might put a show on hold for the first time until it finishes airing.
>the goblin's scream was chilling.
>Ok sure guys, let him call for help just like this
>it's not a ralling cry
>it's a cry of pain and fear
If you people don't respect this as one of the best anime's this season then anime will truly be on it's way to decline.
>no cgshit battles (which are becoming extremely more common now)
>comfy af insert song
>realistic portrayals of normal humans thrown into an mmorpg compared to usual SAO or Log Horizon overpowered faggotry
>the realism stretches to when they kill shit and how a normal person would act after witnessing and actually killing something with their hands
All in all, this anime goes more to saving anime than those fucks said about Kill la Kill. Nice hand-drawn art is where quality anime should be and that is why this anime is AOTS.
It's been a while since such a comfy non-moe anime has arrived hopefully it doesn't go down the shitter from this point
I felt really bad for gobling. Dude was just there getting water in the river and a bunch of faggots surrounded and killed him for some coppers
And what the hell does this magic? Is a debuff or something?
>realistic portrayals of normal humans thrown into an mmorpg compared to usual SAO or Log Horizon overpowered faggotry
I don't agree with this. This feels more like an alternate world story than an MMO one. a good one, just not an MMO thing. And I think LH did the MMO thing really well, especially how it integrated actual MMO systems into its worldbuilding. LH's characters are pretty shit though.
And SAO's SAO.
That was fucking retarded. They are poor and still have to save up for their adventurer license thing. I can understand them wanting to get the gob death out of their mind and using their newfound cash as an escape, but they kinda just have to accept that that's how it's going to be from now on.
>all those complaints about the slow pace
It's like I'm back in Argevollen or M3 threads at the start of those shows.
I hope people who can't handle it either accept it or leave, just like in those threads.
>all these people trying to justify goblin genocide
The episode began with showing you one, very small aspect of the world.
And then it showed what was pretty much just one aspect of life at this one place.
And that's also how the episode ended. With these exact same things.
I had to look up what this thing was. I'm surprised they don't get one of their mages to shoot a few sparks to start a fire.
Then again, they'd probably burn the whole forest down just trying to cook breakfast with magic.
Also what the fuck was wrong with the retarded dark knight who just fucking starts slashing the air prematurely, making the sneak attack fail, and why the fuck didn't the archer or the mage start off with a ranged attack.
How about they first solve their existential money crisis, get some better gear and the fucking ranged guys should actually learn how to hit.
They can have to the death battles after they get down the fundamentals.
Well yeah, I don't know, I never felt bored with either of those.
Jesus Christ Haruhiro looks so damn desperate to talk to Manato. I can only imagine the spaghetti he would drop if he was a girl.
Do you think she would whore herself for food?
Because they are fucking stupid that is why. Honestly they should ditch Dark knight and Hunter. The mage isn't that bad at least she doesn't fuck up a sneak attack just need to work on her aim. If they did this they might get somewhere.
Are you fucking serious? Shouwa genroku is leagues above other shows in terms of quality.
Lemme guess you either love haremshit or moeshit right?
Yea, the pacing is slow but it's still lengths better than having another generic light novel adapted about a 17-year old boy having problems as a child and being considered weak when he's actually cool and strong and gets all the ladies; To be honest, I appreciate any anime that isn't just pure cgshit and that isn't created for nippons to self-insert.
>Boku dake ga Inai Machi
Try harder, newfag without minimum.
Why didn't Tank guy just sell random shit he made out of wood? It could go for a few copper maybe then he can buy himself a shield and sword at some point.
No way dude she's fucking adorable.
This sets itself apart with the phenomenal art direction. Narrative quality seems weak to me, but the visuals are sublime and it's very atmospheric.
She has a fucking bow. she is a fucking archer, and the damedame mage can atleast hit a still target cant she?
If it wasn't for the reject group she would be a redlight district common slut, gobbling cock for copper pieces.
>shitting on Lain
What are you even doing on this site?
>tanking two handed
He was a retard to begin with.
That or maybe he's specing for the long term. The end game specs often have a rough patch early/mid game before they come into their own.
She is a ranger and she's better off with kukri and throwing knives.
Ditching anyone would be stupid at this point, only thing they have is numbers, the sooner Manato's dumb ass dies the better.
