Alright /a/. So what are your hopes for S2?
I heard that the
dubreleases today. For those of you who actually went and got it, how bad is it?
This thread needs more lewd Utsutsu and :>
I don't have any lewd. But I could use some
Can't get enough of this guy.
more action and
No more fucking Miyano ;_;
Lelouch having shit taste as always.
Honestly? More budget. This show started out as basically an ad for the movies. It shows sometimes, no matter how well some parts were directed.
The biggest problem with this show (for me) was that it was animated on threes nearly throughout. It's jarring and constantly breaks immersion. Like people give the Monogatari series shit for being a 'slideshow'. They don't know true suffering until they've watched this.
Personally I thought the animation was fine and not even close to Monogatari-tier stylization. I do agree that they needed more budget though, because it could have been way better.
> stupid as fuck ending
But the ending was amazing.
All the ideas and themes were brought to a satisfying conclusion. The show presented us with a multifaceted view of humanity, empathy and its limitations, the role of and need for leaders and heroes in society, and the way that technology can bring out both the best and the worst in us.
Hajime and Katze were juxtaposed as manifestations of those two aspects, and drove our characters (Utsutsu, Joe, Sugane, Paiman and Rui) to grow as human beings, and at the end those two forces of nature merged so that they could become whole.
The director's cut was better in execution but it wasn't essential.
She's the only thing I liked about this piece of shit.
It's not a show you can really enjoy if you're looking to leave your brain at the door. The show has incredible thematic vision and delivers on that in spades, but can't stand on its own as purely a fun action show.
Every single time
People hate it because it had a 10 minute flashback, which is valid. I didn't get what was wrong with the ending from watching it in one go but if you watched it as part of the season, you'd feel cheated.
Same here. Too bad she wasn't in nearly enough of the show to have made watching it worth my time.
The only thing I can remember about it was the little panda screaming about random things.
I'm in a good mood.
>"Are You Ready!?"
>"Yes. I'm ready. "
I've been out of the loop for a bit. What's the status with S2? Is Iwasaki confirmed?
Also OD's suit is pretty fucking Katsura. I'd love to see him working on S2
I was never a fan of that myself. Fuck it, commencing Rui dump until I get bored typing captchas.
No, I was sifting through old, shitty torrents for Dragon Age II. I'm hoping one of the three I'm dling will work.
I know, I seriously didn't want to play it because I knew how terrible some of things they did are. But, I want a save for the new Inquisition game. Apprently they are making a seperate app that you can upload your saves too that tracks your canon across all games.
The episode where Hajimessu transforms in the tunnel and RuiRui was like "They exist", that ending literally made me gasp in surprise and took the air out of my lungs, and was the episode where I really fell in love with the show.
I'm honestly hoping for more of that.
Origins is hands down my favorite RPG of all time, no question.
To the anon who earlier in the thread disputed the striking visuals, maybe you can criticize the animation but the character designs and posing was great. Look at dat gif!
As long as Iwasaki delivers again I don't care what happens
A continuation and explanation of the world where war itself has stopped.
Further commentary of the process gamefication in relation to the analogy of ''everyone having guns'' which has made the world stop all wars.
Further development of the foreshadowed corruption of Hajime.
What happens when good and evil mix?
Also, in one episode Utsutsu mentions that her body is hidden away somewhere.
I'd like further expansion on that sub plot.
Not to mention further explanation for why she has clone powers. I theorized it had something to do with her being an alien but it was pointing that she was human, so I have no idea.
Also hopefully make tsunboy and Hajime closer.
Fucking tsunboy + genki is the ultimate pairing.
Watch the director cut.
You're wrong. He's no slut. OD is dedicated to his Baracchi.
Man, I wish the theorizes we had actually happened.
Are you serious?
The cast is the most dynamic I've seen in a long time.
He reminds me of that gay guy from TTGL, only better in every way and more fabulous.
She's the best MC in years.
I also don't see how you can see anyone as autistic other than Hajime who's just hyperactive.
I don't remember autist being hyperactive.
They tend to avoid communication, contact, have trouble speaking their mind and act silly.
Hajime has good communication skill, has a ridiculous amount of social friends, a lot of hobbies and is hyperactive.
If the only thing you see in autistic people is how hyperactive they are when speaking about their favorite hobbies, you know nothing of autism.
Hajime's problem is she takes the "social butterfly" thing way too far.
She's like that annoying girl who introduces herself to every single person she meets.
These types of weirdos usually find work at Starbucks because they welcome that sort of manic tendency in their staff.
I think it's because no one gives her shit about it and tells her to shut up, so people get annoyed that she gets away with it.
If an annoying person like Hajime came, you'd try to tell her to calm down, but everyone accepts her and likes her attitude.
It's somewhat offputting in the first episode but it becomes her charm as she keeps doing it.
>They tend to
I had an autistic fatass who was extremely social few years ago(funfact: he started watching anime in the last few months of school).
And the way he behaved and talked was very similar to Hajime. That includes being extremely obnoxious and cringeworthy.
He was bullied every day, but he didn't change a bit.
I want Hajime to be a character rather than a plot device. Have her still smiley and optimistic most of the time, but could she please cry or get mad occasionally? And only occasionally, because that makes those moments where she loses it that much more satisfying. I want her to have a Kumagawa.
Right before she goes on her ''hero's journey'' she does the same ''man, life is fucking boring'' as Rui.
So, to me, before she became a Gatchaman, she was a character with her own anxieties and boredom but then went ADVENTURE!
And here is was having fun.
I was about to complain about everyone sounding they were on helium, but I just realized that they sped up the audio to avoid copyright protection. The Vocaroo link above is a better indicator of the dub.
I dropped this on episode 2 as it aired because I had some bitchfit that day. What subs are the best to use now?
Yea, but the art is pretty and the actions sequences are cool. The quality varies pretty wildly between the adaptations, I'll admit. But if it's done right it's bretty gud. The cast is really interesting and diverse when they get the attention they deserve, and it had a pretty good soundtrack (typical of the studio recently though).
Stop sexualizing my waifu...
without me[/spioler] keep the dump SFW
Depends, how lewd do you want them?
>late for Gatcha crowds thread
I know that i want a fucking lot more of Rui and especially if he gets a Gatchaman suit but since the show closed everything thematically in the first season i have no idea what to expect in a second part... other than Crowds available for everyone who has a phone, i guess.
This show had an amazing cast of voices.
We'll definitely get more of him though I always though him being a Gatchaman was sort of a copout but meh.
I love Rui, but even I think he got too much screentime at times. What I'd like to see is Rui interacting with the other gatchas.
That fucking smile came out of fucking nowhere.
I still don't know why she smiled like that.
To be fair, he was the most important person, other than the three paragon of morality, in this show.
yfw you'll never be able to do all those things ;_;
The only thing not amazing about this show was the cash at disposal of the staff. even the self-proclaimed showa era Gatchaman purists were amusing, at least for people that is old enough to have watched the original as a kid.
I think I'm mostly thinking of his agonizing cloud-pan phonecall with Umeda. A bit too long for it's own good.
But yeah, most of Rui's scenes are great/plot important.
One downside to S2 is that we'll likely not see that much of the costumes.
Or, if we will, it'll be of lower quality.
This show had a ridiculously high budget and they reportedly spent a lot of it on the CG costumes to make them blend with the animation.
So even though this show had high view ratings, it'll likely not have the same budget for S2 since S1 was paid by the Gatchaman movie for publicity.
I'm still amazed how much cash they had to throw around yet couldn't have more episodes.
I seriously like Hajime.
She gives no shit
Wow, holy shit, already?
Feels like yesterday we were watching this show.
For me even watching Rozen Maiden feels like yesterday
It was a joke, but the part that make you laugh was the people on /m/ saying that it was better than Crowds.
still, all nostalgia shit people in europe and south america probably purchased and liked it.
when a shit product hit its toilet target audience its a success, I guess
Isn't Tatsunoko owned by the Japanese government now? Or the show is sponsered by the Japanese Government? I wonder if that will factor into the budget at all.
Either way, I'm not too worried.
Need a better quality gif/webm for this one.
>This show had a ridiculously high budget and they reportedly spent a lot of it on the CG costumes to make them blend with the animation.
Well, shit. In other shows the use of CG produces the uncanny feel of objects not belonging on the scene but in Crowds it makes the suits truly feel like they are out of this world.
I wonder if somebody has aready made a webm of pic related, by the way.
This part man.
Holy shit was this painful.
Almost as bad as the Kanji nail scene or the Higurashi nail scene.
Ah man, that would be awesome.
A good looking one but holy fuck that back.
its like i'm actually watching tumblr
>show based on imageboard
What the fuck are you doing?
sweet christ I can't wait to see more of Utsutsu's amazing, barely-covered loli body
Though I seriously wish Sugane and Hajime got together somehow.
They're like a married couple already.
>Shares the same room, holds hands at night
Yeah, he did.
>talking to yourself is fine so long as you have big breast that talks back to you.
Well prepare to be disappointed.
for your effort
They are made with breasts. It's like a stock item with insert your waifu here. But it's ironic because Rui has no breasts. So its funny because you can clearly see the flat chest but the mouspad has boobs.
Do you wish death upon the whole team?
I remember a little shitstorm regarding the Rui pad, since the original images made it look like it had no definition on the chest there were people joking about it in various site and swjs getting offended.
Fuck, meant for>>111272173
Or as I like to call it ''how 4chan, Facebook and gamification saved the world''.
>get fucked up
>hell yeah, still sexy
>not being part of the bisexual masterrace
I'm not going to argue with it. He looks good like that.
I'm too lazy to go and check if anything of this is bullshit but it's very interesting nonetheless.
Yeah, it's from the official manga.
>you will never get to fuck a drunken Jou every night in your bar as payment for his tab
>their doujins will never be scanned
>Waiting for the OST while that one based Anon uploaded a few selected tracks that some requested.
Oh man that was glorious, I really want Miyano in S2 but guess we'll have to wait and see.
The show would have been better if O.D. died and Jou ended up crippled from the waist down and deprived of his powers after his fight with Katze.
It's lame when shows build up this huge sacrifice and the character comes out fine and dandy.
There's nothing worse than fight scenes with no significant consequences.
exhentai.org/g/687338/52c9ed74e0/ you faggots better thank me later
she has the perfect amount of breasts...for me
Surpriced a good thread is about to die and no one has posted this yet.
