>...was that my cue? Hold it, I'm not ready yet.
GAZ EMPIRE! ROCK, READY, ARE YOU?
GIVE ME ONE REASON I SHOULD NOT WANT FREDRIKA TO PIN ME DOWN WITH HER SHAPESHIFTED DRAGOON CLAWS AND RAPE ME TO PIECES
OH THAT'S RIGHT
YOU CAN'T GIVE ME A REASON I SHOULD NOT WANT FREDRIKA TO PIN ME DOWN WITH HER SHAPESHIFTED DRAGOON CLAWS AND RAPE ME TO PIECES
Chaika on the FRONT page.
Chaika in the BACK page.
Gotta make my mind up: which page should I take?
Its on /a/, on /a/, gotta post Chaika on /a/.
I JUST FINISHED THIS
WHY IS IT SO SAD
NOBODY PREPARED ME FOR THIS
WHAT HAPPENED TO DAVID
>you will never have a girl get so distressed over your supposed death that she becomes a Chaika
Shallow plot (mostly predictable, yes), lots of undeveloped characters, poorly detailed setting, dumbest ending possible, all that cheap gore merely for the sake of teenage-appealing edginess, etc, etc. The only thing that actually felt fresh and memorable among the overall mediocrity was White Chaika's speech and personality, but it didn't save the show.
>WHAT HAPPENED TO DAVID
he banged Selma and got her pregnantand I'm not even kiding
why to live
We all only watched this because we want to hug Chaika
And other things.
the plot was indeed simple. I didnt think characters were all that underdeveloped with the screen time they got. who in particular do you think? the main three were obviously pretty well done, red chaikas group couldve gotten some more screen time but you could see a clear progression from when she showed up to the end. the heroes didnt need much, it was more show up, see how they are now and take their shit.
the ending was meh, il give you that. i thought it was ok but couldve been better. It was predictable but oh well.
the gore wasnt bad at all really, i think the most gore was when they were killing gaz in the flash backs and i think part of that is to show it was a big deal and stuck with some of the heros.
i liked how people werent tanking stabs and slashes like in a lot of anime. they got hit with an arrow theyre hurting, that guy who got his hand cutoff was out of the fight then and there. it was a nice change of pace.
we were given enough of the setting to understand the plot and a little more, im fine with that. It didnt go into the backstory of the entire civilization but it didnt need to. it was an interesting setting that i wish wed get more of but it didnt leave too many questions.
Il say it wasnt the best and i can see why some people wouldn't enjoy it but its far from the worst fantasy series ive ever seen.
i may be biased a bit though because magic guns are my fetish and they dont appear in many things.
Eh, the gore was so tame I don't think its even worth mentioning.
I just wish the ending didn't feel so rushed and anticlimactic. We wait the entire ride for the end and all it does is raise more questions and leave more loose ends. The core story was complete, but I feel like there is plenty of room for more.
Reminder that Volume 12 and the OVA come out in March
superior prototype chaika
kind of. i wouldve liked to see what happened to everybody instead of red chaika kicking donw a door and chaika going for a walk but its whatever. What big questions do yoou still have?
Theres more room for something, not really SoL but i think mini adventures would be cool and fit in well enough with the story.
In the LN, Chaika/Toru/Frederika,Niva are MIA after the defeat of Gaz. David gets Selma pregnant and they settle down in a village with Red. Eventually Red goes with Akari to go looking for Toru and her "sister". To be continued in Volume 12
pacifica wasn't autistic, but good comparison.
They're better than the average light novel but it's only been translated to the first chapter of Volume 3. The original translator got pissy when Baka Tsuki wanted to use his translations because he didn't want to be associated with them and he deleted his site.
You can read what we have here:
thank you very much, il read them once i get some free time.
Why is there so much drama in the translation/sub scene? i don't get it you figure everybody is working towards roughly the same goal.
Chaika isn't autistic, only foolish and naive like any teenage girl. Her speech is due to the fact that the language of the region isn't her first language. Red and White both come from the northern lands where the main language is Laake. In the LN and Manga, she speaks it when she first encounters Toru and when she's imprisoned during the Island arc when talking to the demihuman girl. Of course, the anime couldn't do it because the VAs would have to be fluent in Russian or something for it to be convincing. You can see the runes for Laake here
I'd like to know whether the differences among the Chaikas were just their programming or if parts of their original personalities were still subconsciously there. What were Red and White like before? If Vivi had gone full Chaika, would she still have her poison needle skills? Would she still be in love with Gillette?
Also, dammit Gillette you have an adorable assassin sorta-princess throwing herself at you, cut the dense act and get with her already!
Not much is known, but someone said that Red woke up in a ruined city surrounded by dead bodies shortly before she met David and Selma
They never said that at all. Her memory wipe is a standard part of the Chaika conversion process. The way magic is explained kind of makes it seem like that was a possible reason for her loss of memories prior to a certain point, but that was just build up for when she sacrifices them at the end. Her memories before were lost because they wiped and replaced with the memories of the Chaika template. It says on that page and in the first Volume of the LN that she speaks Laake fluently
I would kill to be Gillete, but less dense of course
i dropped it after 3 eps because the pacing felt all over the place
They try to cover a volume in about 2 episodes or so. I didn't think the pacing was too bad, I've definitely seen worse. The character moments are what really makes the show. But hey, if you don't like it there's no need for you to force yourself to watch.
I'll even get the passage for you
>“You. This. Didn’t see.”
>“. . . Whatever. Fine,” said Toru, scratching his cheek.
>“. . . You don’t meet many people crossing the mountains. I thought it would be a good idea. . . " she mumbled to herself.
>It wasn’t in the official language of the land; instead she had spoken in Laake, a language that was used primarily in the north. Toru had
thought it strange that her speech earlier was stilted and broken. It seemed that the girl had come from the north. She wasn’t used to the
common tongue, but she sounded much more fluent in Laake by comparison.
God dammit I really wish the reply window was bigger
The early LN illustrations seem a lot more "chibi-like" compared to the later ones
Did anyone else really like the ED for season 1? from like 04-11 seconds where shes sinking in the water does something for me, i think it looks wicked pretty. also the music wasnt bad either
Nah, Akari has a better ass, better tits, better hair, and actually has a personality
The best part is that it's sung by the Chaika VAs. The single CD has the voice tracks of each Chaika: White, Red and Blue. You can easily find it on Nyaa
Bigger does not always equal better. Only teenagers believe that.
See above. Not going to turn this into another DFC vs DCT.
In your opinion.
>Actually has a personality
Oh boy, another brocon with comedic yandere tendencies. Shakespeare himself would struggle to write such a complex character.
Vivi a cutie
I think Vivi's is too, she sings the OP
I didn't like it at first but it grew on me
Yeah happened the same to me.
Is not that kind of songs that are catchy enought to get yhou the first time you listen, but the kind you get to love after hearing them a few more times
Manga Vivi a cutie
Everyone loves Chaikas, but not Akari. Why is this allowed?
Akari >Red Chaika > Freddy >White Chaika >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>everyone else.
thats exactly why... because the dick likes it
True. Specially since its the only one I have seen featuring Vivi.
Only one more featuring old fat business men, so not sure if you would like me to post it.
And this uncolored Freddy (is the same one from the first pic)
He's not really retired as much as the job he trained his entire life for disappeared and he doesn't know what to do with his life. A saboteur with nothing to sabotage
What the hell happened to this Doujin? It was one of best drawn vanilla doujins of Chaika. It used to be on sad panda but it disappeared. It's still on nhentai but only in chinese
I know... It probably wont get scanned soon anyway.
No fucking idea. Sad panda has been removing a lot of shit latelly (and good shit)
I remember having read that they usually draw fat ugly guys to make it easier for the stereotypical otaku neet to feel identified with.
How that turned into old bussines men goes beyond me, but a lot of amaburi from the same comiket have the same theme. Maybe is a trend or is referencing something we don't know?
Did Gakuen Chaika ever get translated to English? I saw there was a Vietnamese translation
Her ovaries are modified so that any child of hers will actually be a reincarnation of Gaz
AKARI IS DYNAMITE
TORU IS A FAGGOT
No idea but quick google search leads me to tons of viet sites so I guess isn't in english yet.
Damn there is so little good Vivi fanart...
That's actually from Namaniku ATK, the series character designer and assman extraordinaire. But yes, there is very little art of Vivi
good to know that one is frm ATK. Didn't notice since they weren't showing their asses.
ah yeah. that one its his.
Actually I downloaded it from his twitpic.
He really should draw more Vivi ass.
yup i know. Dominica Skoda, skoda makes cars. The scientist on the last island was named izhmash, a Russian firearm company. Actually all of the heros were named after cars. The wizard in the first series with that brat who killed people, his name im pretty sure was lancia. its pretty cool actually.
I'm surprised we haven't seen a car ad with Chaika on japanese tv
so is /a/ going to watch the OVA together when it comes out? i miss all the good movies because of work, i think it would be fun watching something with a bunch of strangers over the internet
Any vivifag still here? need your opinion on something
i can agree to that. i didnt think the actual show was better in season 1 or 2, it was pretty consistent in my opinion.
i dont know what it is about it but the ED is wicked good, not the best but id say its in my top 10 easily.
really? it was faster paced i think, but not necessarily rushed. Im not seeing where they shouldve slowed down, the jump from arc to arc was sudden but i don't think all of them for the most part were wrapped up nicely. what do you think was rushed about it? It was fast between gaz showing up and him dying but i think thats how it should've been. you don't want to give the big bad time to establish himself if you're the hero.
it wouldve been nice to extend the fight a little, we saw maybe 10 minutes of dragoon toru. Him killing shin that quickly i think was to show he got a "power up" when he made the contract with freddie. everyone else fighting the other chaikas didnt get much screen time. im not sure how i wouldve fixed that.
i think it might be nice to have one of these shows were theres a lot of traveling to have an episode of just traveling. Nothing really exciting happens, just show the normal day to day, focus on character interaction and what not. it might be boring but it would be nice to see whats going on between all the big fights.
>what do you think was rushed about it?
Just about fucking everything.
One episode dedicated to Gaz waving his magic dick around for 20 minutes, next episode Gaz is dead, what the hell? Could have dedicated one episode to Gaz wrecking shit and people panicking, Toru infiltrating the castle with Freddie and actually give Freddie a chance to be useful instead of being king of jobbers.
the ending was quick and i think they should've done a better job with it but i think they did other things very well. The first two episodes with whats her name, the wizard hero, i thought those were well done. getting the remains from that spear guy, and going to the island. the set-up for that wasnt bad. the island was kind of fast, i think it was what two, three episodes? but at no point while watching it did i think to myself i can't follow whats happening or why someone is doing something. Freddie could've been way more badass but in most scenes where shes trying she just fucks shit up. when she got to the island and had her wings cutoff with chaika on her back was pretty weak, but after that she was destroying like everything. during the tournament she was wrecking people. There were times where she got BTFO, S1 where the spider person thing ate her, when she got poisoned by shin. the battle with gaz. overall i think the anime made her look weaker than she actually was.
please don't think im defending this show blindly, i recognize its fault and just want to talk about it. none of my real life friends watch anime.
Why would you want human children when you could have half dragoon children instead?
nobody ever said it was the best animated show out there. at least its not full of QUALITY. Does toru not being actually drawn in there and just being a shadow person really negatively effect you're viewing. did you notice it while you were watching the first time?
Along with Garo and Shingeki no Bahamut 2014 was pretty solid for fantasy.
On a related note Chaika-Amira crossover when?
bahamut was awesome in the beginning and slowly got mediocre when the story kicked in. I had more fun with the first couple episodes with adventuring than when the whole demon angels end of the world shit happened
But it also had best girl.
They're all perfectly crafted by Namaniku ATK
So how different is the LN series story from the anime plot?
Locations and characters are mostly the same. The LN obviously has more time to flesh things out. The biggest difference is probably near the end.
Read about it here:
A shit ton, some characters were added in screentime, some were out right removed, tons of scenes removed or altered throughout the series, and the last three volumes, besides a few key notes have been completely changed.
>tfw I try to find the picture with this exactly this scenario happening and I can't find it anywhere
I wanna kiss Chaika's forehead
piss off Gillette
>tfw no touchable Chaika app
would you touch this chaika
>mfw there actually are people who enjoy things
What really gets me is that the rest of the Gilette squad, especially Gilette himself and Vivi, have excellent designs that fit their roles, but then Zita has that retarded leotard
Vivifags, since it seems we aren't getting any official shit I decided to try my luck at this.
Should I continue? keep in mind I'll try to keep it the simpler I can, so don't expect official dakis' quality
Looks pretty damn good. You should have the skirt lifted up a bit if it's going to be a daki
A princess and a common saboteur? It would never be accepted in such a class-based society. It's as absurd a couple as a noble cavalier and an orphan assassin.
RED A BEST!!
Chaika, pantsu, Toru!
no I'm loyal to the best girl
If you insist on being a homo, I'd be happy to take that Viivi off your hands.
Still not following you here.
Of course we learn later on that she's a Chaika too, therefore a princess and marriageable as far as Gillette's family is concerned.
...I'm now imagining a sitcom-style plot where "Princess Vivi Gaz" has to convince the nobles that she's the Emperor's long-lost other daughter and ropes her "sister" Chaika into the charade.
>You will never know how to train your dragoon
Angry, flustered Pre-Chaika Vivi is best Vivi
So a couple of weeks back I booked an escort and found out her name was Layla.
During the whole ordeal I couldn't stop thinking about blue chaika so much so that I didn't even cum.
CALL ON MWEEE
No lie it was the surrealist shit ever because I had just finished watching chaika a few days before.
I wonder what chaikas stats are, the escort I saw was 130lbs 5'3.
It was so bad I was dropping spaghetti.
Not 130 lbs, I can tell you that.
Is this a real shirt?
There's also this shirt
Oh man good looks. But its not for sale gotta reserve it :(. Though the chaika shirt is less power level revealing.
I just got done watching this, and the one line where Chaika says
she's going to give her father a funeral, before she shoots him,took the show to a whole nother level.
This is what Akarifags actually believe.
Best ass right here.
And it ain't Akari's.
>cute as fuck
Fred a best.
It would also be the last sex of your life.
>Implying her not wanting to harm you means you get out of Fredsex unharmed
She would shortly bemoan your bloody corpse, then wait for rigor mortis to set in and fuck you some more.
She'd probably try to hold back at first, and then tell you that she couldn't take it any more, and you have 10 seconds to make a contract with her if you want to have any hope of surviving
>CHAIKA ON PAGE 10
This will not do.
True but I used to paint fences and it's not unusual for one to get paint on themselves. He was either being very deliberate or changed off screen as I think with a white shirt like that he'd be bound to at least get a smudge or something whilst painting.
Yeah, it's a shame the epic chaika meme got more attention than the show.
Anyone with taste knows that Fredrica is best girl anyways.
Where'd you get that from? LN manga adaptation usually cover 2 volumes. The manga is only at the Dominica Arc and will end in February. Bear in mind it started in 2012. It updated only once every 2 months.
