So is Animage February issue the only magazine so far to have Osomatsu-san on the full cover or are they planning on having them on other magazine covers?
Driving lesson episode fucking when?
Sorry to add a third, but here's another in better image quality.
I like the little Wakaba-matsu sticker.
This is what I was referring to. So will this be like the back cover or just another version of the magazine?
Nice pun. Can't wait for the remake of pic related.
If I add one of the dakis to my March order I will be at 47310 JPY.
I hope I don't like them.
Someone stop me.
Oldest and youngest have each other, Kara and Ichi are apparently gay for each other, Juicy has his waifu, the heroine and catgirl are both idols and bond together through it probably, and Fappymatsu just has his right hand and an ero mag.
>literally no money for buyfaggotry
Just in case the anon who wanted the Horny Juicy picture typeset is still in this thread.
Damn that makes me feel better actually.
Is everything for you?
I have no idea. I have the two I'm interested in open in separate tabs and refresh them periodically throughout the day.
They were just asking if all the merch was bought for yourself.
Some anons in previous threads have mentioned group orders (one online order for multiple recipients).
At least he can date his AU joshi self
You haven't searched far enough, I'm sure.
Most likely, the shipment goes out to one anon, who then sends the rest to everyone else in the group.
They probably split payment for the first anon's shipping fees, as well as pay for their own individual items.
There most likely could be with the addition of gray colored merch (pic related)
That's a lot of trust involved. I prefer to just pay for my own.
>That's a lot of trust involved. I prefer to just pay for my own.
Yeah. Group orders are helpful mostly in certain cases, like if you only want 2 keychains from a 8-piece set, whereas someone else wants the rest (especially if they can't be bought individually). That kind of shit.
Ok that makes sense.
I want the set of pens, but it really bothers me that Oso's pen is the same color as Totty's
Yeah that anon is correct, that's what I meant.
I've only done one group order and it didn't end very well.
I have a Juice hoodie coming in today (supposedly) I'll post it if it looks any good.
And here is the cover to the Animage I got someone asked about a few threads ago.
I already posted scans of all the pages pertaining to Osomatsu-san in the last thread, but some anon is planning on getting HQ scans and posting perhaps in this thread later today.
There's a popular comic on Pixiv that has all the brothers being murdered and their body parts sewn together to make a seventh.
It's implied (by Iyami) that one of the brothers was the murderer and that he rearranged the bodies to make it look like there were six corpses when there were really only five, and that the seventh one running around is the murderer. Iyami thinks the murderer is Osomatsu. The seventh one just claims that there's no way to back that up due to them all having the same DNA.
It's not really what you were saying but that's actually the closest I've seen to a fanmade 7th brother. http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=54458620
● The sextuplets are born in May 24, year unknown, but currently in their 20s.
● The current date of the “Osomatsu-san” anime takes place in Heisei, which is the Japanese term for any year between 1989 to current. (Edit: Yes, it is most likely to take place in the year 2010 or higher because Totty has a smartphone. I just wanted to point out that it doesn’t take place in Showa, which is the era before Heisei, as “Osomatsu-kun” anime had.)
● Their residence is in the Akatsuka district in Tokyo.
● Jyushimatsu’s previous student/work experience involved “Guarding the house. That’s it.”
Having to live with three younger brothers I can relate to having this happen. Seriously would it fucking kill them to turn on the fan or at least spray so it doesn't linger.
>mfw I found some matsu sketches on my imouto's school notebook
I didn't even know she watched seasonal anime until now.
This show is literally everywhere. What's Pierrot's secret?
Anyone else excited for the Dramatsu CDs (specifically the pairings)?
Totty and Jyuushi interaction is going to be adorable
>no jyushi and ichi
bummer, but i guess they want to give some time for interactions that dont happen that often in the show
(1st CD) Osomatsu and Ichimatsu, “Fortune-tellers.”
(2nd CD) Karamatsu and Todomatsu, “Hosts.”
(3rd CD) Choromatsu and Jyushimatsu, “Okama bar.” (?!)
(4th CD) Osomatsu and Choromatsu, “TV Producers.”
(5th CD) Jyushimatsu and Todomatsu, “Policemen.”
(6th CD) Karamatsu and Ichimatsu, “Defense Attorneys.”
(7th CD) All Sextuplets, “Snack business ~The Girl Matsu-chans are back~”
>(2nd CD) Karamatsu and Todomatsu, “Hosts.”
I can see it already
Matsu neet house host club when?
Not due to the content -- I agree that it'll probably be great.
Mostly because of all the IchiKara/KaraIchi shippers out there. I'm scared of them.Though I could just try to ignore them despite them being everywhere.
Cute matsu neet defense club love when?
>(1st CD) Osomatsu and Ichimatsu, “Fortune-tellers.”
>(5th CD) Jyushimatsu and Todomatsu, “Policemen.”
>(6th CD) Karamatsu and Ichimatsu, “Defense Attorneys.”
I fucking want these. The Okama one seems interesting as well.
The lack of Iyami(and side characters in general) is killing me in S2. Watching Osomatsu-kun made me like the Iyami and Chibita dynamic a lot.
Also, why is the police officer who likes to shoot constantly not in san?
Honestly I have yet to run into any shippers that are overly rude or pushy with their preferred pairing. IchiKara is certainly popular, but most of their enthusiasts are polite and enjoy other pairs as well.
Osomatsu is generally one of the more relaxed fandoms, it seems. Everyone who ships knows they're degenerates so they're lax and jokey about it. Except well
Something about the relaxed nature of this show makes me want to ship everything, when I usually couldn't care less.
TotoNyaa? You bet
JyuushiAV-chan? Good stuff
I feel like I can ship anything without conflict,
i kinda don't get it
This. It's really great how most people seem to enjoy a large variety of ships. While people may have their preferred pairings, I feel that mostly people are happy to see any of the brothers fuck.
I think Choro is the most sexually repressed. Since he doesn't even carry porn or anything to help relieve his stress.
I don't think we've yet developed equipment capable of measuring such high concentrations of thirst.
With so many lookalikes running around, you'd think somebody would round some of them up and make a porn parody with a couple of them.
Ichimatsu is the one who doesn't wear socks inside the house and the one in the preview has no socks, but the pants look more like Karamatsu's skinny jeans. Of course, they could have just neglected to draw the line on the side of his sweats.
It's always interesting to see what fan artists will come up with to mess with these characters to make them suffer. By far though, I think the one that has the most is probably Jyushi. That might have changed by now though.
Would you love Kara as much if he weren't the victim of bullying? Be honest with yourself. It's part of his charm.
He seldom does and the tight pants look more like Oso's than Kara. Kara never goes barefoot in the house except when they're sleeping.
Despite that, is it still alright to like them as a duo? Their interactions are entertaining to watch,
Great-Blaster just posted the translated original ESP Neko story
Hatabo is friends with the brothers and so is Chibita. Kara and Chibi seem to relate to each other so that's why they are more buddy buddy. Totoko is a friend even though she is a horrible person. Iyami is kind of a friend but not really since he will just try to use you.
I don't really care about karabita but that ship still makes more sense than ichikara.
He's the worst person on the show.
I feel like Iyami is really only kinda sorta a friend to Osomatsu though, I don't think he actually talks to anyone else.
It kind of tickles me that a dude his age can hold a grudge against a ten year old for so long though.
Kara might have good intentions, but he doesn't actually help anyone. He's way too self aborbed for that. He dramatically goes to the ends of the earth for fresh water, instead of doing the rational thing and humbly getting water from the tap. He values his dramatic image over helping his brothers.
Totty plays by the rules just enough to appear to be a good guy. Makes it a lot easier to get away with the bad shit he wants to do.
He's self absorbed, but he legitimately tries to help. He even was willing to abandon his dramatic persona to stop hurting people. He's just painfully stupid.
I'm pretty sure Ichimatsu is chaotic evil, as well.
It's both. My bad.
It's a lighter shade than the official one definitely
Honestly, that looks closer to the blue in the show. Official colors are all pretty pastel.
I still don't think Ichimatsu is chaotic evil. We haven't seen him be cruel to anyone except Kara. The rental girlfriends ep doesnt count because he was exacting his revenge against them, he was justified.
Ichimatsu is straight up kind in a lot of ways, even if he is kind of a creep. He clearly has a soft spot for cute things
You might have a point about Osomatsu, though. He certainly values his own freedom above doing the right thing. I think I put him as true neutral before because he's the default state matsu.
Oh wow, Irino IS Totty if those answers are anything to take note of.
The Sutabaa incident I think, is an exception for everyone because not only did Totty deserve it, even Karamatsu got pissed off enough to take revenge.
You're making excuses. You've got three examples of why Ichimatsu is chaotic that you explain away by saying "that just doesn't count". Even if Karamatsu was pissed as well, he only reacted as much as Osomatsu and Choromatsu did, while Ichimatsu took it a step into the chaotic. Ichimatsu is a degenerate with an S/M fetish who dresses up like a serial killer and his mom is afraid he'll become a criminal if she doesn't keep an eye on him. It's really simple.
I like that Nakamura mentioned Kara's relationship with Oso. Still holding out for more chokeimatsu interaction.
Woah there anon calm your ass, I'm not the one debating against you to and I actually see Ichi as chaotic. I was just commenting that I wouldn't count the Sutabaa incident as a sign of his alignment being evil.
>Q: What is something good or bad about playing Jyuushimatsu?
>A: A good thing is being told ‘I like the character’. A bad thing is when people tell me ‘You’re exactly like him’.
Definitely want more eldest bros interactions.
Choromatsu is one of the more boring bros but come on, he was much funnier in all his skits in episode 03 (pachinko police, bedtime, bathhouse quiz) than the roleplay interview and he was funny in the fappymatsu incident.
It might be a little heavy for the show if Ichimatsu had a legit serious reason to hate him though, more likely he's just jealous of Karamatsu's confidence and see's him as being insincere and mocking.
The show's gotten heavy before. Maybe Karamatsu did something in the past that he thought would help Ichimatsu make friends, but actually made it harder for him, and now Ichimatsu still resents him for it.
>Q: As Jyuushimatsu, which of the brothers has most caught your attention?
>A: Ichimatsu. ESP Kitty left a strong impression on me. I think he and Jyuushimatsu have a relationship in which each supplies the other with what they lack.
>It might be a little heavy for the show if Ichimatsu had a legit serious reason to hate him though
We had an episode that was very clear about AV-chan's unfortunate porn escapades and suicide attempts/cutting.
I doubt Karamatsu destroyed Ichi's life (I assume >>136362949 was just being facetious). It's probably just that Kara's so self-confident (supposedly) despite having the same face as Ichi. It's annoying to someone like Ichi.
Oh man, it's gonna be a full doujin.
June release, 1600 yen each?
Nice to see a little more variety in the merch. I'm curious about the scale of those stuffed matsus next to the ESP Kitty plush.
I'm disappointed in the build, for the plush they should have used the chibi proportions that they use for their charms, especially for the faces. The materials look good though.
I wish they had them in their hoodies.
Even if it's ikemen matsus I'm glad to see people actually printing OsoIchi doujins.
Don't worry, anon. I'm sure there will be other matsu plushies.
Even Kamiya can't say anything good or bad about Choro since they have done nothing with his character. He seems to care for Kara at least so that's good.
Honestly it's not like they're not gonna make a new epilogue anyway for whenever the series finishes up, there have already been two alternate timelines/futures at this point, and the characterizations for the matsu bros right now don't match either one.
In a way it kind of does.
It's fucking Argentinian ghost all over again. But this time I know it can only last one episode. FUCK
The way Ichi bargain is amazing. I wish McDonalds cashiers would try to sell me something the same way Ichi does. "Are you sure you don't want fries, aah? It would be a shame if you couldn't enjoy your meal without them, eh?"
>"These fries are really great"
>"You sure you don't want to order them?"
>"You won't be able to order them again"
>"That's a bit of a shame, isn't it?"
"Ok I'll order them"
>"You want these fries? Well do you?"
>"You want these steaming-hot fries that were deeply fried in vegetable oil, don't you?"
"I-I want them..."
>"You want them?"
>"Don't you mean, 'May I have them, please?"
"M-May I have them, please?"
>"May you have them?"
>"Don't you mean, I am nothing but a male pig, but please feed my famished body, Ichimatsu-sama?"
"I am nothing but a male pig, but please feed my famished body, Ichimatsu-sama."
>"Let my belly have it."
"Let my belly have it!"
>"Please, hurry and give it to me"
"Please, hurry and give it to me!"
>"Well, I guess I don't have a choice."
>"Here's your reward."
>"This is what you wanted, isn't it?"
>"Hurry up, eat, and leave you pig!"
>"Otherwise I'll kill you!"
>"Please come again"
I just assumed that theres a word for male pig in japanese but not in english.
I like it when they're drawn to have longer adult proportions.
Kara as a disney prince is now my fetish
Have you missed the zanzu for the last couple episodes, or are you glad he's been gone?
I'm sorry for my shitty example, but there are different words for pig, male pig, and castrated male pig in
russian language.You'd be called pig only if you spilled or dirtied something but male pig is mostly associated with a horny fat and lazy creature. Also they say meat of a non-castrated male pig smells a lot. I just thought there goes the same logic.
So is episode 3.5 most likely going to be translated and uploaded online when the blu-ray/dvd comes out next friday?
Excited for 2 brand new episodes next week
>But what about those who sub on nyaa.se?
What? You're not actually saying what I think you're saying are you?
HorribleSubs IS Crunchyroll.
What is with the newfags in this thread.
Translated comments from the director and character designer from the Animage February issue
> comments on Ichi
This makes my Ichi-loving heart bloom. I'm a bit too invested/interested in the "cold and despondent but secretly quite perceptive and sensitive" character archetype. Bonus points when they totter that line so fine that it looks like they could either descend into madness or grow into a compassionate human with the right patience and understanding.
> when he speaks his lip flaps are in reverse
I didn't notice this at all.
I think he means he looks like that, not necessarily that the character in-canon has someone else coordinating his looks for him.
Though it would be very Totty if so.
I want to buy it, but shipping is ass. Oh well.
If I didn't already have a number of Osomatsu merch preorders I need to pay for later, I probably wouldn't mind biting that shipping.
I dunno burazaa his conscious moral values he tries to hold on to versus his terrible personality that surfaces especially with Osomatsu plus his hive mode (which he just pours his heart into) as a third component is a good amount of character.
They come up to about half the cat's height when sitting.
Choro seem pretty fleshed out to me. the only one I see as obviously lacking development is Oso. Are you hoping for a dramatic focus episode a la AV-chan or ESP kitty? Because I wouldn't hold my breath.
The show words best when the side characters are in the plot but not the main focus I think. Iyami's cartoony villain personality will only be funny for so long. In fact after watching the older series a bit I don't really think he'll bring much on his own. The tooth metal thing was funny but I can't see there being too many Iyami only segments being great. They do need to bring him back. Chibita is nice but I'd rather see Mr. Flag or even better I want the brothers to interact with Dayon for a plot.
These might be the worst matsu merch designs yet.
>Ichi has bigger pupils than totty
Poor Kara, a widower at 20-something.
Please tell me some anon didn't post this yet, 'cause I'm translating and editing as I upload.
>you will never a flower fairy
It is. Medicine can do many things nowadays. They might be not developing correctly (like lacking some organs) or not getting enought nutrients, they might be born already dead. It's 6 different organisms and each needs stuff to develop, of course it would be easier if there was only one of them. Children might suffocate durings birth (if Jyushi was the youngest you could say that he is retarded because the lack of oxygen did a damage on his brain). More children being born = tinier and weaker they are. There are a possibility of Cesarean because it must be hard to do it on your own. Welp, it's her choice. She can do whatever she wants. It's doctor's duty to always mention the worst case scenarios.
..And that's the end!
Off to bed now
Aren't identical sextuplets pretty much physically impossible?
Both in how "likely" they are to occur and also the fact that IRL, probably at least one of them would die before coming to term.
Some reading material for you, since the subject is kinda interesting.
According to this wiki page, the most identical siblings ever born was 5. So I guess it's not a stretch that 6 is technically within the realm of possibility.
Addendum: more on those quintuplets.
So yes, once you exceed about 4 or so the survival rate drops really significantly and there's a lot of risk of premature birth etc.
>once you exceed about 4 or so the survival rate drops really significantly
So Totty really shouldn't exist?
Not that anon but with all due respect, a large part of media is about catharsis and/or empathy. There are compelling reasons why there are very well-loved tragedy films out there and why not everybody only ever looks to entertainment for comedy or w/e.
The subject of childbirth is intense and close-hitting for a lot of people. Speaking as someone who has miscarried and has had to emotionally support other people I know who have as well.
I hate pointless wangst as much as the next person, but seriously, Mama Matsuno carrying those sextuplets is no walk in the park and it's kind of cool to see fan interpretations on how that might've played out.
Yeah, but fanwork has a lease and life on its own. Tons of people enjoy it, that's why it gets made and consumed.
To each their own and obviously that's your opinion, but "it's a comedy" hasn't stopped this show from getting into some heavier territory itself.
I get the feeling Kara did something stupid in highschool and it caused people to hate Ichi or something and Kara is 100% oblivious to it. I hope if they show why it's never brought up to Kara and Ichi continues to be an asshole to him like he has been.
I think of it more like Kara did something stupid and embarrassing, not on purpose but because he is an idiot like he usually is, but it affected Ichi that much that he shut himself off by his own and thinks of it as Kara's fault and Kara doesn't know it, otherwise he would try to atone for it.
I'm fairly certain that the mystery was already solved in an interview, wasn't it? They said Ichimatsu hates Kara's confidence because he has none himself.
Hoodie came in today.
The logo looks a tad small but looks fine worn. It's bright yellow but looks pastel sometimes too.
I still have an official one coming in so I'll compare when it arrives. Spoiler-ing because of a worn photo being shown.
I think I like the way Totty sounds agitated better.
I'm impressed he ever even emerged as a tsukkomi. After they revised the character profiles at the official site recently it feels like they didn't anticipate the places the characters would go and let them evolve.
It's situational, really.
In theory, I prefer Totty as the straight man because he's not a typical "neurotic, high-strung straight man" like Choro.
Totty's interesting. He knows how to manipulate people (into spoiling him, etc), so he should have a good understanding of how to read other people. He acts innocent on the surface, but his straight man role quickly shows itself when he's calling out other peoples' bullshit (Kara, Detective Oso). It just makes a lot of sense to me.
I fucking laughed at this skit
I was expecting SZS shenanigans though
Did they fuck?
