Next episode in three days. Are you ready for sweaty unwashed Hotaru armpits?
yea, i wish those two were in a better show than this stupid 20 minute candy commercial. hotaru is sex incarnate, but I might not make it past the 3rd ep if it stays this boring. I'll lurk in threads instead; all the good pics and webm's end up here anyway
It's not going to pick up any. What we've seen is pretty much all there is to it. I'll keep watching it for Hotaru.
Many anons came for Hotaru but stay for Saya.
I actually came for Saya.
I never saw her in the manga tho. Did they just add her in or something?
I assume that they're starting the anime from the first chapter, and she definitely wasn't in the beginning of the manga
They're not going through the manga chronologically. She doesn't appear often, so they probably do their best to make her appear more often or put her in adaptations of chapters where she never actually appeared.
Since it's episodic and a 10 page per chapter manga, they're able to move a lot of the stories around, without causing any trouble with the continuity and actually making it more suited for TV for example by introducing recurring characters (like Saya) earlier or moving stories to make it seem like it's a logical continuation of the last one like this week with fue ramune and the card flipping story after it.
I'm probably going to drop the show if nothing starts happening.
I didn't need to watch Seraph to experience Smugnoa and I don't need to watch this boring shit to experience Saya
it's a SOL though, I mean there's not going to happen anything obviously. It's supposed to be a comfy show with a few comedic elements, which was pretty obvious from the beginning
>hero wandering around buying groceries
>looking to fill work quotas
>zoning out in front of the tv
>freaking out because he might miss a sale
>asking a friend to intercept an annoying girl
I mean kind of.
>putting K-On and OPM in the same category
what in the flying fuck am I reading
SOLs are just supposed to be comfy and give you a good feeling. Doesn't need to be particularly funny, challenging or have a good story. Kind of like a lot of retarded people like to watch the Kardashians be whores and useless pieces of shit all day, other people prefer watching drawn 2D characters be usless pieces of shit all day in a fantasy world.
No, I'm different from the other complainer. OPM is a slice of life, it's just a slice of a hero's life.
It's like this one panel in Spider-Man where Peter goes to bed and thinks to himself "I should have cut my toe nails."
no it's not. OPM is a prime example of a shounen (even though it markets itself as a parody of one), even though it's trying to be a parody of it.
Examples for SOL include, NNB, Aria, K-On, Yuru Yuri, Toradora, Haruhi, Hyouka etc.
>OPM is a slice of life, it's just a slice of a hero's life.
By that logic everything is SOL
>TTGL is a SOL in a world where humans got banished to the underground and some managed to escape
>Dragonball is a SOL about Super Saiyans
>Initial D is a SOL about Super Eurobeat and racing
>Cowboy Bebop is a SOL about space bounty hunters in the future
it's published in a Shounen magazine and it clearly has Shounen elements, which is why it appealed to so many people.
>hurr durr it's a demographic
I never said it's a genre, just like SOL isn't a genre but a certain show type
But TTGL is an allegory for puberty, DBZ is a battle shonen, Initial D is a meme and Cowboy Bebop is a masterpiece.
>I'm not a vampire but my wounds heal quickly because that's left over
Before watching the anime I was actually quite interested in what kind of personality she'd have, because the crazy eyes everyone has in the designs appeal to me in some way.
Honestly, I pegged her as some sort of yandere.
Man, was I disappointed.
Everything she does is the worst way you could take lolsorandum humor. Not that Saya is any better so far, with her textbook idiotic "let's pretend I don't like you" shtick, but at least when she does her thing all I do is roll my eyes.
Hotaru scenes, on the other hand, are annoying as fuck, be it because of yet another lmao so random candy overreaction, or because she yet again did something whacky.
I feel so tired from this anime season. Both this and Musaigen are making me feel like I've finally gotten too old for the medium. The only thing I like so far is Boku dake ga inai machi, and that's only because I enjoy how dead inside the 29 years old protagonist's voice sounds, and how reasonably he acts even after turning into a kid.
What if Dashi Kashi?
Savory instead of sweet?
There is a lot of ways you can make a bright and outwardly happy character, like Yotsuba, or Minoru from Toradora, and this isn't it.
Hotaru doesn't act like a happy person, it's like a caricature of what a person who doesn't know what genuine happiness is thinks happy people act like.
It has some very nice character designs but yeah, it's just introduce snack of the week and do some wacky stuff.
I don't know, I've started reading the manga and I enjoy that more than the anime.
>it's like a caricature of what a person who doesn't know what genuine happiness is thinks happy people act like
you must consider it was written by a Japanese person, chances are whoever wrote her doesn't know how happiness works
Not him, but I get what he's saying.
In manga, you can just frown and go past a bad joke, but in anime you're forced to sit through it, because there's no way of skipping without knowing when it's going to end, and you're not only watching it, you're also hearing the badly done joke acted out by a voice actor.
A little deeper/rougher, but yeah, that would have been better.
Ougi has a REALLY smooth voice and it's not abrasive at all, kind of like her personality?
I'm not sure. what VA would suit hotaru
I agree with deepening the voice. In the context of the love triangle, she's the experienced/exotic city woman "stealing" Coco from Saya. A deeper voice on her would imply age/experience.
You shouldn't make her rough, though. She's a corporate giant's daughter, she likely learned some form of etiquette. Saya should sound rough when she's upset.
She's not quite the titty monster she is in the anime but the manga is all over the place with her tits, especially early on.
30 but it's revealed later on
it was hinted slightly in the last episode
Kotoyama loves to put her in different outfits on the cover pages.
Does she fit or too annoying in a different way
I'm not familiar with rural Japan so I can't really imagine that.
Maybe save the roughness for when she's freaking out. Like when she's propositioning Yo to come to the company she's all ladylike and then when she pervs out over candy her voice becomes more natural?
Why would you lie to unsuspecting anons?
Dayum nigga. I like women that are in denial about their age if they can pull it off.
>Interesting plot points
>In a shonen-aimed anime
Did you expect anyone who has watched more than two anime to believe you
She wouldn't know what it means to "sell your body".
She's too pure to know about sex is what I want to say but holy fuck I can't
I didn't realize Bush was still in the White House.
I like candy far more than the average person but I still have preferences. It seems like she'll eat anything.
Yes this is her menu:
Footjob - 5 chocolate bars (100g)
Pantyhouse dick grind - 15 pocky boxes
Thighjob - 40 lolipops
She seems like an ignorant ojou-sama you can trick into doing so because she has no idea of how lewd her body is, nor that she does inadvertently lewd things. She's also the daughter of a horrendously rich candy manufacturer who spoils the crap out of her.
>Batshit insane titty monsters
So... Hotaru or Anna?
>proposes to her with a ring pop at the end
Holy shit I'm dying
because the next person in it will be white.
Having her being actually Anna-like insane would have made for nice character contrast.
But she's not batshit insane, she's just random and childish.
By that logic, Yotsuba fits your ticked of 'batshit insane'.
>Batshit insane titty monsters
My personal favorite
>search for doujins
>barely any saya
H E R E S Y
Gotta love it when doujin do a better job with story and character development than the actual series.
I hate hotaru's red fingernails.
Red nails make any character look like either a slut or a 50 years old aunt.
More often the latter.
>I hate hotaru's red fingernails.
>Red nails make any character look like either a slut
This is exactly why I love them. They're hot as fuck. Long red nails on titty monsters make my dick diamonds.
Sayas get no Coconuts or doujins. Sayas only get love from anons who are also surprised they like her more.
This is how it has to be.
And you don't need doujins to dream of her, anon. Trust me, I know.
I'm mostly indifferent to them. I never care about nails, but they fit into Hotaru's color scheme. It all makes her look like she spends half an hour to put on her outfit every morning or like she never takes it off.
Coconuts can give her another one. Buy a variety pack and give her a different flavor everyday.
It'd not the good kind of slut though.
Red nails don't make me think of a clean girl craving dick, they make me immediately think of a disease-ridden crackwhore who's already wrinkly at 25
How many chapters are they skipping each episode because it feels all a bit jumbled every episode.
It just doesn't feel smooth as I thought it would be.
They've just been skipping around the first 12 chapters or so. There really not a lot of cohesion between most chapters, it's just, introduce dagashi, talk about it and do wacky stuff.
I think it has more to do with how fragmented and chaotic narration gets every time Hotaru is on screen, due to the random nature of her humor.
It's more of a problem of the character than of the adaption.
I'm really glad Mori is actually doing this the day after the show comes out. Thank god fansubbing isn't dead completely otherwise we'd have to rely on the late CR/Funi
I can't decide which girl I like the most. They are both equally cute.
>figure you're lying
>check his blog
>"Likely dropping after episode 3"
I want to date Saya.
Homely delinquent is the best combination.
How wrecked will her heart be?
Ever have a feeling that it's only the infamous stuff that will be remembered anywhere near as much as the good stuff?
Phantom World has cemented its place with Electrictits boogaloo.
>cue manga page about "what does love taste like"
Dimension W was more my speed. I nearly shit myself every time I see an MC that's older than 18. I guess Sekkou Boys also covers that by a wide margin.
Right here, just not that premade bollocks.
Now now, if I dropped things based on their OP's I'd have never watched a lot of things.
You can't just judge an anime by its OP, anon.
I thought that was metaphorical.
I think at this point I've seen
I'm sure I'm missing a ton too. Boy pussy is so commonly used that it isn't even worth listing.
>no nail pussy
>no back pussy
>no bone pussy
>no skin pussy
>no knee pussy
>no thigh pussy
>no dick pussy
>no wrist pussy
>no knuckle pussy
>no calf pussy
>no tail pussy
>no ankle pussy
>no ball pussy
>no neck/chin pussy
>no forehead pussy
>no bellybutton pussy
It's a shit list.
best girl's hair and armpit are certainly in that picture.
Join the club man. My monitor died and I can't get one until Friday.
What would you want Hotaru to teach you?
How to do it raw and
Any amount of remotely serious talk about dagashi or crappy trinkets kids in the 60s wasted their money on is unbearable to sit through, and that's 1/3 to 1/2 of what an episode of Dagashi Kashi is made up of.
Not even the hilarious cutaways or Hotaru's lewd body can make it worthwhile to keep watching.
The amount of inventory they display and the number of customers that come into their shop really doesn't seem to warrant having an actual shop. They easily could cram their entire business on a cart on into a stall in front of a proper store.
>Hotaru doesn't act like a happy person, it's like a caricature of what a person who doesn't know what genuine happiness is thinks happy people act like.
Shit, you may have just discovered a new dimension to her character.
>tits bouncing and flopping around while she was doing her morning workout
Coconuts won't be late for another workout.
Is three card that amazing?
Holy shit, how could have I doubt the master of masters.
i want to
cumon hotarun face
I saw a promo poster for this series months ago and Hotaru was the absolutely only thing I knew about it.
And here I am.
Between inheriting the store and getting the girl or pursuing his dreams in the city.
What should Kokonotsu do?
No, that would be dishonourable and he'll probably have to commit sudoku.
it seems like asian cosplayers are really bad about bing spot on with there characters appearance but wearing this dull blank expression on there face. it just kills it for me.
I get the feeling that she would probably have good hygiene. She must care about her appearance in some way or she wouldn't go to great lenghts to create such a sexy look.
I want Hotaru to teach me how to shop images and edit stuff to a high degree of skill.
Sorry for asking, but what was the name of that doujin again?
It's a pochi goya doujin, don't remember the name but I think it's the third one in the series.
Because that's what she was created for.
