Maybe Kanade, although if that was the case, it'd be something I'd prefer to see in the show proper.
>>13787473 Is probably right, though.
Third option would be some completely random celeb like Matsuoka Shuzo or Christopher Walken
"The room" has that picture frame with the spoon photo that puzzled everyone who noticed it after repeated viewings of the movie, to the point it became somewhat common to bring spoons to viewings of it.
The story behind it was revealed years later: apparently they bought the frame as a prop, but never got around to changing the pic that came with it and forgot about it, so it made it to the filming.
The geahs version of "The room" was basically Maria in a tux, replacing Wiseau's messy accent with the Hikasa engrish, as she plays football in a tux with the rest of the geahs dressed formally.
[Spoiler]Sorry, I made only one.[/spoiler]
I have been told that Psychomansers in this game punch things to death. My net worth immediately decreased by $15.
>Not getting swole so you can princess carry your waifu regardless of size
Do it for her anon
153cm, compared to Ao-chan who is sitting at a comfy 145cm. They're both tiny. I know a Japanese girl who is 159cm and she's tiny, I can't imagine how much compact moe being 153 generates, let alone 145.
153 cm, so barely above 5 feet.
The point still stands though, gotta be strong for your waifu.
>>The point still stands though, gotta be strong for your waifu.
You don't seriously expect me to believe that there are guys here who don't already lift while listening to Symphogear (and other anime) music while thinking about their waifu, do you?
>gotta be strong for your waifu.
I would lift if I had liftbros.
>I would lift if I had liftbros.
Go to literally any gym with a powerlifting corner. Powerlifters are the nicest, most supportive people you'll meet. Just avoid the douchebros who think they're hot shit for benching 2 plate and squatting 3 plate with half ROM.
Powerlifters tend to aggregate in the corner near the squat racks and the olympic platforms. They'll be the guys squatting deep, foam rolling, and chalking up when the gym staff looks away. Avoid the guys who don't squat to 90 degrees and who spend half of their workout chatting up girls. Start doing some squats or deadlifts and then ask one of the bear looking motherfuckers to correct your form, then compare that to what you read here http://liamrosen.com/fitness.html and if he's way off, ignore him. If he seems in line with it, then he's one of the good ones.
That's true. It was back when they were recording for Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon.
Aoi was really into hooked into the Transformers movies back then so she thought the motorcycle was really cool, the rest is story.(he was the one that uploaded those photos in his twitter)
Taking into account how small Aoi is, it's quite impressive that she even managed to get in position to ride such a motorcycle in the first place.
It's called Dungeonmans. It's a Roguelike where you can actually progress in the sense that each char you make can potentially make future chars stronger - I made some Symphogear sprites for it since apparently you can put custom sprites in.
Gameplay is actually not that bad so far, but since it's a roguelike, you don't respawn if you die. Must plan ahead of time and not go into super dangerous areas without being prepared.
If you've reached the bed, then the plan was a success
That's like a totally reasonable white people height though. My mom is like 156, my manlet brother that got his height from her side of the family is probably shorter than Tsubasa and I am about 179, which makes me super fucking average somewhat Germanic white person and tall enough that having a thing for tall anime girls is awkwardly nonsensical because I'd still usually be looking down at the top of their head without heels. Tsubasa with her Symphogear should be pretty even though I guess, which is neat.
Actually Mexican women are shorter than Japanese women
Aoi looks downright absurd without heels/platforms and puffy hats.
>you will never know the warmth of her sunshine
On the other hand
>she will never be mad at you and not talk to you even while eating together
Those things cancel each other out.
Oi, you 'aving a giggle m8? Talk shite 'bout the himawari more cunt. Gonna find glass in the gums for weeks m8 swear on me mum.
I want to be princess carried by my waifu, but even though she was tall by Symphogear standards she's still shorter than I am.
I guess I could settle for being grabbed and yanked into the nearest closet or alley and being fucked silly if the mood struck her, though.
Basically I want to be man-handled by Kanade, physically, emotionally, and sexually
I want this god damn sweater. Maybe the creepy Hibiki mask to seduce Miku with but mostly the sweater. C'mon hobbystock, deliver.
Pssh, Kami-sama is a god of lovOHSHIT
>All this tower of Babel stuff is making me tingle below the belly
I like the personal touch of WHY DON'T YOU LOVE ME too
The most common Bad Thing in Symphogear isn't "evil", it's seflishness
Boy why does that sound familiar
People talk about princess carry a lot but I'd like to
give her a piggyback ride. Her arms gently resting over the shoulders, mine around her legs, cheeks rubbing one another, breasts pushing against the back...
Of course it sounds familiar, selfishness is what causes all the bad things
>Fine causes literally all war and suffering in human existence by trying to confess her love for God without thinking of the consequences
>Nastassja uses her babbies for her own cause without regard for what they actually want or can be
>Miku and Kirika's love for Hibiki and Shirabe, respectively is self centered and doesn't consider what Hibiki or Shirabe might want, leading to deadly duels
>Carol's autism limits her to a single interpretation of her dads last words, without consideration of any other viewpoints, resulting in a Super Apocalypse
>Topdad's literal everything
In most cases, the villain in question learns not to be such a selfish goddamn faggot and either dies or joins the white hats.
Topdad is just a microcosmic version of the other villains
Piggybacks with Chris would be dangerous to my heart
That would be nice, too. That said, I think Kanade is a bit too close to my height to do that comfortably. It'd be cute, though.
Carrying her and then getting dominated would be nice as well. A dominant but still feminine girl is hot as hell.
Is it time for swim class already?
Kanade plays Vanquish. I think she'd like it, though she'd probably drive the suit to overheat all the time.
Last played game was GRIP. Racing game. If you remember the Rollcage titles, think that. If you don't, think Mario Kart on PCP. I think she'd like that a lot, too.
I dunno if Chris would have the patience to get through the first week of Neku being a complete shithead
I can't even remember how many times I've changed the internal battery on that GBA cartridge. I still play it, even now, occasionally.
If she continues my save, I imagine she'd tease me about my naming sense. I always named the cows and sheep after Pokemon, and chickens after Kamen Riders (they do have to fight other chickens at the competition, after all).
The horse I named Ferrari. I was 14 when I started.
It looks amazing for a mobile game. Your wallet may not survive, though. Also you missed the chance to get an SR Koume last October.
Plot for next Symphogear series revolves around waking up the golems. each girl get's their own.
yes or yes
I don't think the Gears can handle XCOM: LW that well.
>DESS gets gifted a copy of XCOM
>buys a pile of commander-esque clothes, decorates her room accordingly and gets Shirabe to address her as "Commander Kiri-chan" just to get in the mood
>installs LW without having beaten the original game
>the last thing Shirabe hears is Kirika swearing repeatedly
It's funny because Shirabe could maybe, just maybe, handle the game in Normal.
OK What is going on in this one?
From what I can tell:
>Chris gets into a Home Alone scenario after her bath
>Maria contemplates suicide because nobody's visiting her food cart
>Tsubasa explores the world after getting a sex change
>Hibiki accidentally stumbled into the Land of the Dead after a horrific accident involving a Halloween costume
>someone who really needs to shit kicked in Kirika's bathroom door
>Shirabe was sent through a time warp to prehistoric times
>he doesn't shitpost while taking shits
>>Hibiki accidentally stumbled into the Land of the Dead after a horrific accident involving a Halloween costume
Isn't that Kanade in kid version?
I see it now.
>>indefinitely reverted her into a child's body.
That must happen in S4.
>Hibiki plays Destiny
I imagine it'd go down something like this
>muh Titan easy modo
Is crucible acceptable yet?
Hunter main and Defender second, son.
>d-don't look baka!
when why are you flaunting it?
it's not like I wanted Tsubasa, look at my body
Hibiki seems like someone who'll grind rather than come up with actual strategy.
Closest I've got
An AU 'prequel' with all the girls going to elementary school together would be super cute
>An AU 'prequel' with all the girls going to elementary school together
Symphogear's equivalent of Innocent?
I guess? I haven't read/watched any of Nanoha.
Innocent is Nanoha, right?
You could even have other characters as teachers and stuff. Fine/Ryoko as their homeroom teacher, Dr. Ver as the school nurse, Genjuuro as PE teacher, etc.
Or just go the easy route and make it a knockoff of the TTGL highschool AU manga
>You could even have other characters as teachers and stuff
Yeah, Nanoha Innocent kind of did that as well.
Though, the characters are ridiculous at times.
>Materials are supposedly the same age as their originals and are foreigners who just happens to have the same face as them
>They are also grade-skippers and are attending middle school while Nanoha and friends are in elementary school

>The Numbers with the Nakajimas keep their number-based names despite the fact that the 2 elder siblings, Ginga and Subaru, have relatively normal names
>The Numbers with Jail get japanese names based on their number
>Hayate already graduated from University and runs a bookstore/game shop
Yeah. I've got the same one somewhere, probably in a bin with my other old transformers toys
one of my greatest regrets in life will always be not taking better care of my 20th anniversary Optimus Prime
I'd pay for that.
Well I did kind of already pay for the BDs so I would have already.
I'd pay to see it sung at Symphogear Live. If I was able to go to Symphogear Live.
I would make a joke about Ver never getting laid, but he almost fucked Maria, so he gets points.
That's even worse than the diarrhea!
When cats brush their faces against something, they're marking it as their property.
I don't remember Aoi's cat being this fat the last time I saw him.
How fast do cats age, anyway?
Should I ask Maria?
Reminds of that time I dared a kid to lick a foot long turd we discovered in a vacant stall in 2nd grade, and he actually did it. To this day I still don't know what was going through his head.
This one? It's only 21 years old though.
This year Japan's summer vacation starts the 26th of July, when they visited Elfnein they were already in the summer vacation and maybe around 1 or 2 weeks passed between that and the "forcing topdad into Hibimom" so I still think she is 22.
No, they need time for topdad and I'm not joking, that's what will happen in the last one.
No, I don't hold anything against him but he represents topdad so no, Genjuro's VA and Sugita are more than enough.
>30 bitterblack weapon 2 later
>still no magebreaker
That doesn't have anything to do with the live though.
The chances of Toshihiko Seki coming as guest for the live next month is close to zero but adding more joke character especially someone that can keep up with Sugita would be great. Ishikawa is good but he's not really a good tsukkomi for Sugita boke.
I wonder how much older Ogawa is than Tsubasa. I mean, since he was training her for a long time and she was like 6-8 when she first started using Ame-no-Habakiri.
The idea of some 12 year old ninja kid teaching a 6 year old to throw knives is amusing
>But he would be great the butt of jokes
Please. They'd have him enter stage during Little Miracle and then break into duet with Aoi, and they'd expect the audience to worship the ground he walks on.
I just realized what my problem with GX is
In the prior two seasons, Miku's character development is parallel with Hibiki's
But in GX, Miku's character development is "done" (and they don't have to revert her because she's not the main character like Hibiki is) so she's relegated to basically just being Lois Lane
She goes from having problems of her own to literally just acting as Hibiki's problem solver/girlfriend, a sunflower propping up the sun
Ooini Utau 4 was wild.
Can't wait for April. I need more JOZAI SENJOU Nana pics.
>Miku's character development is parallel with Hibiki's
That in itself is limiting, so I'm glad they're moving away from that and making Miku a better all-rounder. Problem is, the execution was still godawful, but then replacing Topdad with her would've been almost as bad in my eyes.
I like their archetypes, and most of the idiotic shit they do is either harmless or in some way interesting (Kirika's paranoia) to me, which is more than can be said of Hibiki (G+GX in their entirety), Tsubasa (start of S1, plus her transition into Autismobasa) or Miku (everything). Chris and Maria had their excruciatingly bad moments as well, but they're considerably more forgivable.
>To make up for lost time and be closer to his daughter. Topdad begins crossdressing
>Flustered Hibiki every other episode
>Maria's happy that she's not the oldest in the group anymore
I'll allow Topdad to be a recurring character in S4 if they did it like this.
>I like their archetypes, and most of the idiotic shit they do is either harmless
I can see that. They don't have much going for them in terms of characterization, but them being dumb doesn't really detract anything either. Still though, I wish the "You're a hypocrite" comment Shirabe made to Hibiki actually went somewhere as Hibiki showed in GX that she was a real hypocrite.
>which is more than can be said of Hibiki (G+GX in their entirety), Tsubasa (start of S1, plus her transition into Autismobasa) or Miku (everything)
Hibiki I'll certainly give you, but Tsubasa and Miku had good reasons that were in character for everything they did. "Bitchy" does not mean "bad character".
>Chris and Maria had their excruciatingly bad moments as well,
Most of which were in GX, which wasn't particularly kind to anyone. Especially those last 2 episodes. Holy shit those were bad.
>"Bitchy" does not mean "bad character".
>yeah how dare characters have negative emotions
I never said it has to be bad, just that I find it unbearable despite their actions being perfectly understandable given the circumstances and their mindsets. You don't have to put up with absolutely everything that those around you do.
>Most of which were in GX, which wasn't particularly kind to anyone. Especially those last 2 episodes.
That's why I'm willing to be kinder to them. Chris was fantastic before that and I still like her newfound (but so far completely undeveloped) dynamic with DMJii. Maria is mature in the way she understands her own flaws, and while her learning a bad life lesson (episode 7) is definitely something I'm holding against her, I find it easier to sympathize with her than with many of the others.
Forgot about this:
>Still though, I wish the "You're a hypocrite" comment Shirabe made to Hibiki actually went somewhere as Hibiki showed in GX that she was a real hypocrite.
Absolutely. Instead of reaching a middle ground and allowing themselves to learn from one another and thus bond (which would be a much needed boost to Shirabe's individual character development, on top of giving Hibiki some good interactions with a different character and helping her grow), they just went in a completely different direction and messed it up completely. I'm still a bit bitter about that.
>just that I find it unbearable despite their actions being perfectly understandable given the circumstances and their mindsets.
See, but this makes it seem like you're equating "likable" to "well written" and that's just a silly notion.
> I find it easier to sympathize with her than with many of the others.
Meh. I feel like Maria at the beginning of GX was perfect in terms of how they handled her changing after the mess that was Maria in G. The fact that they went back and trampled all over that left a bad taste in my mouth, and at best I'm neutral on her now. She didn't have characterization as strong as Chris that lets me ignore a single moment (or two, if I'm counting for Christ) of stupidity in GX.
>allowing themselves to learn from one another
I think the theme of GX was "No good or natural growth allowed."
>See, but this makes it seem like you're equating "likable" to "well written" and that's just a silly notion.
When did I mention that? I only said that DMJii were my favorites, not that they're well written, because they currently aren't.
>The fact that they went back and trampled all over that left a bad taste in my mouth, and at best I'm neutral on her now.
Yeah, I'm with you on that, though I still like her in spite of that. Sure as hell didn't help that they then continued to try and push her as a new main character and make others (namely DMJii when fighting Other Maria) focus on her learning process instead of their own.
>I think the theme of GX was "No good or natural growth allowed."
And here I thought it was "wasted opportunities."
Right. That's why we got to see all those important interactions between Carol and her Father, and not a one sided bastardization of a few words he said to her, and that's why things like Hibiki's mother's struggles as a single parent were explored, and why Genjuro's role as a surrogate father to Chris was also touched upon.
>When did I mention that?
In saying that you find a character unbearable for acting bitchy instead of looking at their place and role in the story, you make it sound like likability is all that matters.
I think we pretty much agree on the rest.
>you make it sound like likability is all that matters
In a series like Symphogear, now that I've noticed how much Kaneko can struggle with character development, that is pretty much the case to me. Nowadays I normally don't look for depth of character or overly explainable flaws in writing as much as I once did.
Chris is a good exception at least.
FIS definitely had the better and more deserved arcs, with Tsubasa. Hibiki and Chris's arcs were extra useless in the grand scheme of the series.
>adult Serena never
>Tsubasa was the only girl in GX who had a half decent character arc.
Even though it makes her look like a complete idiot who needs Maria's validation to make any decisions and has forgotten the things she learned in the first season?
Hibiki on the other hand we learned that she had daddy issues even if they weren't never mentioned and after those daddy issues were resolved she doesn't hold any grudge against her former city. It wasn't the bullying, it was just topdad.
Tsubasa was always dense as a brick. The root of her problem and the final resolution to it were both in character and made sense. It was rushed, and could have been handled better, but the premise and resolution were easily the only half decent ones during GX for a character arc.
This. We had for the other girls
It has been explained the last 6 monts a lot of times.
I'm week so I'm strong.
What was their problem? I don't remember because it was just boring and pointless.
I was going to write "dense as lead" and "dumber than a brick (when it comes to feelings)" and I ended up smushing both together.
Hibiki's was horrible from top to bottom. Chris has a fine premise, but the way it turned into melodrama was fucking abysmal. Maria started out good in GX and was able to move past her problems naturally, but then they decided to set her character back for the sake of a shitty revelation episode, and then DMJii's was literally "Who can out-gay the other."
>it was just boring and pointless
Not to them. They're stunted as fuck because they're orphans who lived most of their lives under the supervision of the FIS. If anything, Maria being somewhat socially apt makes considerably less sense to me.
The concept is fine but they made Tsubasa downright retarded for no reason just because Maria didn't get enough shilling apparently.
>Sworddad flat-out states that he loves her in plain, completely unambiguous terms
>She doesn't get it until Maria repeats that Sworddad loves her
>retarded for no reason
That's Autismobasa in a nutshell though, with or without Maria. That and DMJii's arc makes me wonder if people don't realize just how stunted the girls are.
But Tsubasa was always retarded when it came to family stuff, and despite her density, her arc was still the only half decent one in GX. Nobody is saying it was 10/10 amazing, just that it's the only one that you can watch and think "Ok, that made some sense and was in character and forward moving."
Remember, she is a Kazanari, a family formed of a rapist who NTR'd his son, an autist cuck, a guy who sits in a bridge, watches movies and sleeps and a girl who claims to be a sword.
The Mariacat virus cannot be stopped
It's been a while /sgg/.
How have you been? School has been well, school. But I have my Kirika scarf that I wear every day and that lightens up my mood.
>People mistake it for a Harry Potter scarf all the time
>googletranslate my way through some short japanese fic about Maria staying over at Tsubasa's place
>It's mostly about the delicious breakfast from Maria's point of view and how amazing the bread and jam Ogawa bought is
This is not what I expected but it's hilarious
Hibiki, Kirika, and Shirabe all go into Hufflepuff because they're naive and retarded beyond hope.
...is this what i think it is? I'm glad I haven't given up on living.
i'd honestly prefer for more fics/doujins about the characters just doing dumb shit
So funny SoL stuff? Yeah, I think we all want that. At this point Symphogear has good characters and people want to see them, they don't want to see the drama.
The real question is
Which would be chosen to be Arisen, and who is their Beloved. Remember that beloved isn't necessarily the only person with max affinity, and if they talk to someone with equal affinity before they leave, that new person is their beloved.
>How have you been?
I finished school and managed to dig myself out of the snow.
I really need to plan out what's gonna happen past episode 3 of my symphobattle Campaign. However, episode 3 looks to be fun.
Depends on how you define max affinity. Plus DD's system is pretty arbitrary in how it decides your beloved. A better system would have you better able to define who your beloved is instead of just the people you get to really like you through little fault of your own. So Grigori should be taking the character you actually like the most, which in Hibiki's case would be Miku, who is basically Quina.
I banged princess panties for silly hat on my amazonian mystic knight first full playthrough. Though my amazonian status was kinda dropped in the end because fuck that crapass sprint speed and stamina recovery times. My new soon to be assassin is undecided.
Also I gotta ask what happens if you choose a beloved that isn't one of the main 5 girls? I kinda want to bang that bandit dyke.
I said what happens, not if I could.
Cus the wiki was saying shit about how the main girls get some unique dialogue when you romance them and I was wondering what happened with other characters.
Cute comedic SoL situations that are in character and don't get obnoxious might be much more difficult to write than lewds seeing as how we have so much of the latter and almost none of the former.
Keeping established characters in-character is always difficult. Lewd is difficult at first because "how do I write sex" but generally after you get one or two fics under your belt it gets pretty easy, and you generally only have to worry about a scene or two of the characters actually being in-character.
So yeah, writing good, in-character SoL is harder than writing lewd.
I'm half tempted to see what they have
I was writing a fic about a theoretical villain with Excalibur taking over england and conquering europe, but I have no confidence in my ability to actually get any decent characterisation in
You know what I hate? When I'm looking for a picture in my symphogear folder and just simply can't find it.
I start doubting what's real, and I'm sure I saved it but then - nothing.
So, does anyone have that picture of Maria and Chris sandwiching Tsubasa and they're all wearing bunnysuits?
You're lucky I have my Chris images well organized
It's why I try to save everything with a filename that, when I think of that picture, I'd go "Oh, of course it's that."
I have a harder time finding images with filenames because they'd be in a random place in the list while 4chan images are all numbered and I roughly remember when I saved that picture and where from.
What? No. Carol hasn't had a real body in a long time. Carol was in the last "good" homonculus and now Elf9's soul got moved into it because her body was dying (after the explosion that somehow knocked out Genjuro and where topdad had to care for her).
>S4 has the girls getting the shit kicked out of them, all seems lost
>Suddenly a familiar track begins to play
>AH SHUUEN E NO KANON GA KAORU
>Antagonist proceeds to get its shit kicked in
I think someone on Symphogear radio said that they hope both of them converse in like a weird split personality sort of way, or like the hallucinated conversations that the show likes so much.
Personally I hope Minase gets more roles; she did a great job.
I sort by show or by general topic (like "smug") and then I name each one something that I'll remember. There's no way that I'll remember the time I saved an image 4 years ago in relation to thousands of others, but I will remember that I named something like this.
Old habits die hard.
I mean, 3500 pictures since 2012 isn't a lot, and I haven't even made ordered little neat folders at all except for the screenshots, but you know, if I haven't saved it, I can't name it anyway.
I only have around 300 images in my Bikki folder but the only ones I have real trouble with are ones from pixiv.
>he doesn't have 8k+ images bookmarked and properly tagged
I am like 75% sure from who -did- get casted for GX that they turned down Ai Kakuma and Saori Oonishi.
It kills me every time I think about it.
That's not taking into account the screencaps I have of her. Though I do tend to save images with better art.
>symphogear will never be this gay but with girls.
Soon we will have google's image recognition neural network that's set up to recognize anime characters and then we can just run all the pics through it and let it tag and sort them all automatically.
I have my images sorted into hierarchies
Fanart and Official Art are the top layer
Within those I have "Colored" and "Sketches"
Within those I have "Alone," "With Others,"
"With Tsubasa,", and "With non-Symphogear Character"
It keeps the images pretty well organized, but I might add another layer of "Street Clothes" and "In Gear" if the folders grow too much.
We always have Aoi's idol duo
Why that one specific tag?
How would you feel about the Symphogear guys getting drunk together
I always assume that Nao Touyama and Mikako Komatsu aimed for Geah roles during S1 but were turned down, hence why they ended voicing supporting character in the Anime trio.(as it makes no sense otherwise why two moderately popular VA ended up voicing literally whos)
Because I only save pictures with Kanade, and a huge portion of Kanade's fan art that has her with other characters has her with only Tsubasa. For example, Fanart: Colored: With Tsubasa has 54 images, and Fanart: Colored: With Others has 66.
>"Ok, so now those two guys get oiled up and start wrestling. And make sure they're naked. And if they happen to slip inside each other, that's fine too!"

>"The what now?"
Is topdad included?
Pretty much anywhere Inorin, Zucchi, Kunopon, and Shiori Izawa all are Kuma-chan is probably going to be.
Maybe next season I'll get an Kakuma/Oonishi/Taneda trio for some reason and they'll find a way to cram Kakuma and Elfnein together, that's totally possible right?
I said guys. Genjuuro/Ogawa/Fujitaka/Yatsuhiro/I guess topdad can come too

She doesn't have a guilt complex about the concert, she has a guilt complex about how the one time she rainchecked Hibiki, she ALMOST DIED
>Even though it makes her look like a complete idiot who needs Maria's validation to make any decisions and has forgotten the things she learned in the first season?
A Tsubasa always needs a Kanade
Maria is done being Evil Tsubasa, which means she can now be Octopus Kanade
Hibiki got shot through the heart at the concert. I don't understand what you're trying to say here.
>tfw everyone assumes Fujitaka is a pedophile now because of that thing with Kirika and Shirabe
It was like ONE TIME
What would lead you to believe such a thing?
How would you react if they introduce Fudou and he's actually a really nice, stand-up guy and pretty much the only thing he's ever done wrong is NTR his own son?
Alternatively, what if he's just the god-king of doing bad things for good reasons, and everything "wrong" or "evil" he's ever done has been for the good of his country/world?
Is that what we're calling it now? Because there's probably a more fitting word.
It doesn't' matter because by the end of the season he'd be redeemed without even saying "sorry"
I dunno man Bikki is willing to entrust the future to the ghost that caused the confusion of tongues and all the conflict in the world solely over her raging boner for God
That sounds pretty forgiven to me
The last episode of season 1, when Ryoko tries to murder the world with the moon fragment. Right before going off to fist the moon fragment into pieces, Hibiki tells her that when she resurrects in the future, she can carry the message that you don't need power in order to bring people together, which is what turns Fine around
Hibiki totally forgave the shit out of Ryoko
Ryoko was "dead" before the series even started. Fine wasn't "dormant" in Ryoko like she was with Shirabe, she completely took over Ryoko's body and all of "Ryoko" we ever saw was just Fine playing pretend.
That isn't forgiveness. Fine is about to disappear and there isn't a damn thing they can do about it. Hibiki knows she's coming back in the future, so rather than antagonize her, she leaves her with words that will hopefully prevent another future disaster. How is that forgiveness?
>Hibiki knows she's coming back in the future, so rather than antagonize her, she leaves her with words that will hopefully prevent another future disaster
That implies a level of calculation that's alien to her character though
Even before Ryoko tries to apocalypse all things one last time Hibiki clearly intends to join hands with her
>That implies a level of calculation that's alien to her character though
>This bitch can't die
>Better not piss her off
Season 1 Hibiki was stupid, but not GX levels of stupid. Even she could have figured that out.
>Even before Ryoko tries to apocalypse all things one last time
They thought she was completely neutralized, and there was absolutely no reason to think she could grab the moon out of the sky. Even as the audience we had no idea that could have happened.
Right, but again, Hibiki's feelings towards Ryoko pre-moon grab and post moon-grab are consistent. She's not making some last-ditch attempt to mitigate the possible damage Fine might cause in the future (though given how Fine prevents herself from resurrecting within Shirabe, that's the end result). She's reaching out with an open hand like she always does.
Symphobattle Design Update
Been a slow week due to a relative getting sick, but still more progress was made
- Officially number of pages fully finished 47.
- Pages with layout and skeleton made 56.
On the bright side, I finally found a way to quickly check the text for typos within Illustrator itself so that will speed up progress a bit.
sadly I haven't got much time to drawfag.
I approve of this Adult mode Elf9 would be cool, question is should she be wearing a repaired Faust Robe with different colors or should she wear her usual white shirt and shorts while in adult mode?
In GX Shirabe never delivered the message Finé left for Hibiki, they really should have separated Shirabe and Kirika for a few episodes, to have Shirabe interact with Hibiki and to see Kirika having Shirabe Withdrawal
>implying everything she pulled with Chris isn't exactly as retarded as everything she pulled with Shirabe, Carol and Topdad
>implying her insensitivity about Kanade's death isn't strictly consistent with her insensitivity about basically everything across all seasons
Hibiki is a bad, dumb person and Miku shouldn't love her as much as she does
Adult Elf9 also need to arrive with proper doll reinforcement to mop up the obligatory next versions of the Noise.
Yeah I'm having lots of fun eager to work on the Doll Workshop section, that si basically where the dolls traits and fluff is.
But they needed a way to get them to start the fight by having Shirabe protect Kirika from an overwhelming opponent.
They totally didn't have an opportunity to do that before episode 8.
Chris was clearly conflicted and showed remorse about what she did. There was a real person underneath the anger. She also at least hit Chris when they fought. Don't compare that to Carol, who made it clear she just wanted to kill everyone and who Hibiki refused to fight for half the season.
The Kanade thing was definitely her being insensitive and dumb, just like she is with Miku, but that's a different kind. Miku may love her more than she deserves, but until she became a sociopath with a hero complex in GX, she was never a bad person.
>Chris was clearly conflicted and showed remorse about what she did
Not during her initial appearance, dude. She's all BWAHAHAHA MURDER and Hibiki's like NO WE CAN UNDERSTANDING and Tsubasa and Chris are like "FUCK OFF WE'RE FIGHTING"
>Not during her initial appearance, dude. She's all BWAHAHAHA MURDER and Hibiki's like NO WE CAN UNDERSTANDING and Tsubasa and Chris are like "FUCK OFF WE'RE FIGHTING"
And that ended after a single fight, compared to Carol who she was trying to save even after learning her fucked up motivations and goal.
Reminder that Hibiki was with Ryoko during the episode she did the absolute most hilariously suspicious shit conceivable and never suspected a thing.
Hibiki don't brains.
they are gay all the time even off camera, who know what kind of stuff they do "at home" or on Chris's "past 9pm dinners".
she could have told her while they were at the medical bay on episode 8 or at the beach at episode 7
