Can we get a Shirayuki thread going? Episode 2 came out today and I haven't seen a thread for it.
Lurk moar, last thread lasted for a while and was deleted some hours ago.
There was a thread earlier today, I'm fairly sure most of /a/ doesn't care about moe qt alchemist doing things around a castle to keep it alive for much longer than a few hours after the episode dropped.
SHIRAYUKI IS CUTE
Raj a best girl.
It happened again.
That's the most retardad and ignorant excuse I've seen. I've read tons of shoujo and even some shitty or comedy based ones had characters with more than one trait. Keep thinking your shounen manga are superior, Black Clover and Nisekoi readers.
Do you really need an "evil" antagonist to keep your interest? It's cute and comfy, throwing stuff like that in would just muck it up.
While the setting is all around "feel good", the characters come off as bland to me. I love to see some independent shoujo MCs but I've seen other ones done in a way far more interesting.
>Shirayuki is trying to do some basic research
>the villain messes up her note system
>Shirayuki is trying to perfect the crystal flower process
>the villain steals her supplies and kidnaps Ryu
This would get annoying pretty fast.
I think that it's kind of refreshing how both the main characters seem to not fuck up regularly.
Usually in shoujo what drives the plot is one or the other of the main pair not being good at romance and screwing it up. It's really tiring.
What I like about Akagami is that they're both adorably smooth operators, and the conflict comes from external sources. You really want to root for them.
I'm just assuming he's their mutual boyfriend in an unspoken three-way arrangement because otherwise it doesn't make much sense for Zen to be using him as such a blatant substitute
or hugging him when he never touches his other attendants.Obi's periodic romantic assistance is also a little weird by itself.
Which reminds me, I really like the bits of good action that is sprinkled throughout the show. It's a nice bonus.
If you're interested, this is the old thread for the episode: >>136298111
Is being too perfect a flaw now? I don't even think I could call that criticism. It's more like you don't even like the very premise of the show. It'd be like saying you don't like your comedy to have humour in it. Just don't watch comedy.
In the manga is MC still a cuck who can't stick his dick in her yet let's her go on year long trips overseas with her bodyguard who is also in love with her?
Love shoujo, helps me picture having a gf that comes home smelling like penis.
He seems to like them both in an ambiguous way, but otherwise yes.
>we probably won't get more best boys this cour
dropped the manga as soon as the prince's handsomer, cooler, more masculine, more powerful brother threw the FeMC down on a bed and attempted NTR.
That's when I realized "ah just another shoujo"
I'm disgusted at that too but realized if the roles were reversed and Shirayukis cake sister takes advantage of Zen I think that'd be hot as fuck. I am now a feminist because of that.
>wanting equality in your anime
Enjoy your sluts.
I like it. The music is well-orchestrated and emplaced (seriously, I've never seen such consistent usage of music from start to end of an episode in any non-movie anime production). Shoujo tropes don't really bother me, and honestly, I like the characters.
Feels like an inverted Akatsuki no Yona, kinda.
She still loves her boyfriend.
But be warned anon-kun, this is where the reverse-harem genre leads us.
I like the side manga where her boss actually DOES NTR her sexually and romantically though.
You'll create a shitstorm with this post, anon. For some reason Shirayuki posters hate Yona.
The anime is a 1:1 of the manga up book 7, which means it's just a huge introduction, also the only good adaptation Pierrot did in 2015. Far less romance than Shirayuki but the hints are obvious, it's more of a adventure shoujo manga. Too bad the really good adventure arcs only begins up the point where the anime ends.
>I have seen people trying to shitpost by pretending to seriously compare them.
Which is why lead people to hate it. The only thing they have in common is red haired strong protagonists.
Yeah aside from being a shojo with a cute red head, and i guess a similar time period. And theyre both technically princesses I guess. Aside from those, theyre very different. Akatsuki no Yona has much more action. Like straight up murdering people and blood. I don't think Shirayukis has that.
Yona is an inferior Twelve Kingdoms but still very good in my opinion, Shirayuki is what a great Atelier anime should look like if the game fanbase wasn't filled with c uck otaku.
read the manga and dropped it after the pirate arc. spoilers below
It's gotten repetitive and boring. All we have is some special reason to be a special snowflake (red hair) and that she basically stole everyone's attention and glances (typical girl fantasy). You might find yourself cringing once you hear the author's comment about her red hair in the first few manga releases.
To add more cringe, there's way too many hawt guys eyeing the same single girl. I don't wanna sound like /pol/ but that reeks too much of feminism with all that female empowerment bullshit.
But in all seriousness, I mean otakus that are insecure because their cute alchemist waifus have male love interests. Since Atelier entered the PS3 age it became way too obvious, they still have male minimal male characters but they cannot touch the waifus. Escha&Logy anime was so shitty because they basically made it fanservice and the male protagonist himself was made a complete beta.
>I don't wanna sound like /pol/ but that reeks too much of feminism with all that female empowerment bullshit.
Do you realize that japan barely has a vision of feminism? you do sound like /pol/.
I don't think it's for everyone, but the more I watch it, the bigger my heart boner gets. It's a nice feeling. I can't really explain why, but this show just seems to hit all the rights buttons for me.
>To add more cringe, there's way too many hawt guys eyeing the same single girl. I don't wanna sound like /pol/ but that reeks too much of feminism with all that female empowerment bullshit.
That's what the entire Shoujo genre is.
Why do we have this conversation every time a shoujo gets an adaptation with conventional artstyle?
Do people mistake the more realistic proportions for REAL MATURE ADULT ANIME or something?
>never ever etc
Sure, the exact same wish fullfilment thing but genders reversed will pander to your dick more.
Not saying Soma manga is bad, but the MC is basically wish fullfilment for basement dwellers who know how to cook something other than cup noodles. Also harem.
>>everyone was way too flawless
>It's shoujo, what did you expect?
It's not much shoujo; it feels almost too Disney like.
In order for it to have a real enemy, they must look grotesque.
The manga's best arcs are after the anime ended anyway
Megumi, Niku, Erina and that childhood friend. Doesn't help that Soma has one heck of a plot armor that even some other Jump MCs would be envious of it. Soma is a good manga but Soma is a terrible MC in my opinion.
Are these two nerds ever going to hook up or what?
I guess you consider Shirayuki cute enough that it still belongs on your "will continue watching it" list despite there being anime shows with girls that you consider cuter than Shirayuki.
It's because people blame Yona for the fact that Akagami got no attention, despite being the highest budget production of the summer.
And it's kind of true. Yona started really strong and then devolved into reverse-harem trash. Then the very next season Akagami came out and "Oh look, another red headed protag in a shoujo, this can be completely ignored."
They bothered making 4 different dishes for the group, I am surprised.
As cool as Zen is, does anyone else find him a little boring?
He's a perfect prince, with perfect traits etc, but he's not that interesting. He feels like a typical prince charming.
Obi is really interesting to watch, he never really says what he thinks, and acts like he's always got another agenda.
How he handles problems has more subterfuge, not the direct method Zen uses.
I'm glad he's going on the trip, it should be very interesting because he's there.
Their arc is really cute, and I want more of it.
I don't understand the bitterness over hairstyle in this fanbase. Both are fine.
Still can't believe that betamale Zen is letting his not!girlfriend go on a year long getaway with a man who's in love with her.
Sometimes I think shoujo authors understand men less than harem LN authors understand women.
>That hug transitioning into a forehead to forehead
Who the hell greenlit this kind of smut to be put on television? It's criminal.
Maybe they'll be nice and give Obi another love interest like they did with most of the males in Kamisama? If anyone, maybe his past bi partner. I'd like to see more of her and feel bad for Obi.
It's not really relevant because Obi views them as kind of a package deal. OT3 jokes aside, I'm curious what the writer has in mind, because he's probably the most important character in determining how the story eventually plays out, but there's still no clear endgame for him.
Personally I hate the opposite, making the bad guys "absolute evil" just because they're bad guys. Seeing something like this, representing people in a gray zone, is fare more refreshing.
