Yeah, on account that it's /m/ and there isn't much else I'm watching this season.

Seriously, Winter 2016's lineup is pretty meh. I'm only checking Sekko Boys and Ojii-san to Marshmallow on the non /m/ side of things due to their silly sounding plots. The only other one that looks kinda cool is Prince of Stride, but that is probably nothing more than fujobait. Good season to get through backlog at any rate.

Thank goodness I've largely stopped discussing airing anime on 4chan.

I couldn't give a fuck what /a/ thinks about anime, since you're never going to get anything worthwhile going there except maybe news.

I think it's interesting enough to have a police meets tokusatsu show in this day and age, so yes. I will be watching Active Raid myself. The Orange 3DCG will also make the fights decent, which is a bonus. The rest of the 2D animation is only "meh" but that's never been a priority for me (there have been many bad shows with great animation).
>>
>>13703053
The only things it has in common with Code Geass are the chief director and the composer. None of the writers are working on this. Anyone who calls this a "trainwreck" might as well say the same about Tiger and Bunny.
>>
>>13703337
Eh, I don't think this is being hyped up even a quarter as much as A/Z so I don't expect too many normalfags to be watching. The vague Code Geass connection won't be enough for people who expect a show with a different premise (teens rebelling or saving the world) and not "heroic police" for instance.

There will be some QUALITY but even Sunrise has been giving us some of that with Gundam IBO lately, so it's business as usual for the anime industry.
>>
>>13703543
I think she'll be like Blue Rose from Tiger and Bunny, in that we'll see some in-universe commercials plus bits of T&A but won't be the main focus of the story.,She's a lot less visible in the newer key visual with the rest of the crew.
>>

Not really. We don't get to see that kind of anime too often. In fact, it's relatively rare outside of toku circles.

Practically every other /m/ show has been gay for decades dude. This is not a new thing. Nor a bad one.

She's cute in both.
While she was already going full hard boiled near the end of s1, my only regret about s1 would that they should have showed more of it. I don't feel like watching s2 for this sole reason, as s1 was perfectly fine stand alone, and s2 feels like milking as the original writer Urobuchi didn't write it.

The idea is neat but it looks like it could get side tracked on loads of generic anime tropes and slice of life bullshit.
>>
>>13704243
I think most of the cast is already out of high school at this point, so I don't think it will be too anime. On the other hand, I do expect some slice of life/sitcom sequences, just like with T&B and Patlabor to provide comedy, since it can't be all action all the time.

More like that's all in your head for now.
>>
>>13704247
>high school
There was a bit where it showed kids in highschool uniforms.

Tiger and Bunny did it well so it isn't impossible but just looking at it T&B looks less generic. Like the cast wasn't largely made up of a lot of generic looking anime girls who could be swapped out with any number of other ones. I know book by it's cover and that's just the common style but the air about this show with images like this >>13703543 just doesn't give me a huge amount of faith
>>
>>13704255
There are literally only two (2) secondary/tertiary characters in high school.

One is the twin sister of the girl with the pony tail, and the other is a school council president dude. Everyone else isn't attending, so my view standards.

>>
>>13704255
Keep in mind that plenty of people also called T&B generic....even in this very thread, but also outside of it.

I will give you that this show is using a more normal anime art style rather than a Marvel/DC comics derivative or something, but it's not like we kill ourselves every time a character isn't drawn differently in our /m/ shows.

As for the "air about this show"...again, have you looked at the PVs as well as the rest of the art? If you're just focusing on one picture, it's silly. Even Majestic Prince had promotional pictures in magazines showing all the girls in bikinis or whatever and that didn't take over the show.

The PV focuses on showing us about seven or eight members of the cast, of which only about half are girls. It's not one guy surrounded by a harem.

Furthermor, there's nothing wrong with having a cute idol/mascot or similar character. It's a selling point for Macross as well as many other shows. It's how the industry works, but that doesn't make a show bad.

That assistant inspector main girl doesn't look like a clueless moeblob to me. In fact, she is going to be pushing the other characters to act more mindful of justice and duty, etc.

It's pushing the same thing most anime do, both mecha and otherwise. Or do you think Blue Rose wasn't cute or didn't get a few close-ups of her ass back in T&B?
>>
>>13704298
>half are girls. It's not one guy surrounded by a harem.
I mean you are just kind of making my point for me here

>there's nothing wrong with having a cute idol/mascot or similar character.
saturation and following trend for sales

> Macross
Which ties it in well, similar to how Blue Rose added to the point of what super heroes in that world were like and she wasn't just there to be cute. This looks like she'll be an app or something, could this be tied in well to the themes and ideas of the show? Maybe, maybe not. Observing that it may just be forced in there is a valid point

>pushing the other characters to act more mindful of justice and duty, etc.
Being bossy doesn't stop the character design being incredibly generic and add to that this show may be trying to sell on that. In fact I really don't get where you got this bossy means she isn't a generic moeblob characters. What most shows do these days is give a selection of girls with each handed a trope. You'll have the angry one, shy one, goofy one etc


You can say well maybe it will be different but nothing is really pointing that way and the best we have is hopefully these elements won't be as over blown as it is in the marketing. There is so little of the toku in there it feels like a side note
>>
>>13704319
>>half are girls. It's not one guy surrounded by a harem.
>I mean you are just kind of making my point for me here
Not him, but what does this mean?

He's saying there's a balanced cast, not a cliche harem situation.

>There is so little of the toku in there it feels like a side note
Oh...you're a tokushitter. I guess that explains some of your denseness.

>>13702407
Prince of Stride's MC is a chick though, isn't it?

>There is so little of the toku in there it feels like a side note
Would you prefer something that's like 70 percent toku jokes?
>>
>>13704329
>Not him, but what does this mean?
He point out that half the cast (looks like more really) is modeblobs, and then saying there isn't going to be any of that shit. Then again harem anime has got so bad they have to take out any other males and add 40 girls as it may offend the delicate otaku sensibilities otherwise

>Oh...you're a tokushitter.
Gee it's like someone on /m/ would be interested in this cause the toku bit which is why it is being posted here.

>>13704388
>yugoslavian_fargaia_girl.jpg
Something something Blaze of Disaster

But seriously she just happens to have some magic weapon from Ireland they dug up, like how a couple of Japanese girls have stuff from Norse mythology.
>>
>>13704319
So you think it would be better to have ten men and one girl or ten girls and one guy?

Then we should kill ourselves since trends all over anime. They always have been and always will be.

At this point there's less observation and more speculation to be honest.

You're just calling the character generic because you don't like her gender and/or design, regardless of what role she will play within the narrative. I was using that to illustrate that having such a personality can in fact be a good starting point for a character. If you prefer some other kind of personality then so be it, but I think it's a decent one.

It's already pretty different from the rest of the shows airing this season (and the last) so I think it's fair to assume the show will be interesting and entertaining enough for those who don't immediately fall over as soon as something seems "generic" .

For that matter, you remind me that toku has plenty of female and/or girl characters these days, for which they also choose cute actresses. Ergo, that's not something that can be avoided in that genre either. You going to dismiss all those shows as generic too?
>>
>>13704348
The main characters are four girls and four guys. A larger look at the cast suggests something like six girls and six guys. I don't see any predominance of females at all.

For the record, the writer for this anime is the same guy who wrote Akibaranger (Arakawa).
>>
>>13705562
*trends are all over anime.
>>
Looks fairly generic, but could definitely be fun. I'll give it three episodes, at least.
>>
>>13704319
>What most shows do these days is give a selection of girls with each handed a trope. You'll have the angry one, shy one, goofy one etc

Do you realize this applies to almost every mecha show and most toku productions as well?

From SDF Macross to 7 and Frontier to Delta, or from Zeta Gunadm to ZZ and G Gundam to Wing or SEED to 00.

Characters who are physically attractive and have some easily identifiable traits is nothing strange. However, they can still be decent characters even if they have such elements.
>>
>>13705609
It's really only in harem situations that one trait dominates a character in a terrible way because there is little need to tie them to a story and the status quo must be protected at all costs. Which isn't necessarily the case since there is no harem involve here and Active Raid isn't adapting a light novel or some such where circular situations are normal.
>>
I think this show might be a a bit like Majestic Prince in that it won't look all that new and unusual at first glance but may actually turn out to be a pretty fun experience in the long run. Certainly more than shows like Valvrave that tried to go all insane but had nothing of value to show for it.

I'm going to argue people over simplify Valvrave to disingenuous effect as well as excessively praise MJP, also to disingenuous effect.

And that anyone who puts the two shows in the same post with even the slightest intent to relate the two is more than likely a shitposter out to revive 2013posting.
