This picture is just too painful to see, especially for someone like me who had watched the original air every week back in 2006
What is this utsukushii creature, /a/?
I would complain, but that Nagato looks deliciously submissive.
>so Tanigawa can sit on his lazy ass all day and reap in the royalties
He's been doing it ever since the anime aired and the novels sold like millions. He doesn't even need to write anything anymore
;_; i just want my kyoani ryouko, is that too much to ask
What's with this autism? This char design is perfectly fine for the tone of the series. And it's not bad at all, you're just not used to see the characters drawn in such a way.
>This picture is just too painful to see,
Who cares what the look like, they're making an anime of a butchered spin-off, with forced drama, unfunny humor, and a quiet boring girl in love.
I guess the only thing I can look forward to is Aya and Sugita's voice.
>Koizumi is still side character everyone forgets about
When will the best girl's suffering stop?
>not forced drama
Did we even watch the same show?
I don't understand the point of making a show that REMOVES all the good things about SHnY (the sci-fi elements, Haruhi as focus) to make it just some generic romantic comedy.
Shows like that are a dime a dozen. Making Haruhi LESS special makes it uninteresting.
>In media, a spin-off is a radio program, television program, video game, film, or any narrative work, derived from one or more already existing works, that focuses, in particular, in more detail on one aspect of that original work (e.g. a particular topic, character, or event).
Get it in your head.
It look like Haruhi is abusing a child and Asukara is Yuki's mother saying ''D-don't look Yuki''.
But this spinoff completely rewrites the entire world of Haruhi specifically to make it like every other school romantic comedy ever made. It strips everything about the show that made it stand out.
Kyoani's designs are an atrocity to anyone who liked Noizi's original designs too. Especially after adding the k-on faces.
Kyoani is just much an offender of not sticking to source material as Satelight is, it's just that too many of you are filthy animeonlyfags who pretend to care about the series.
The 5 whole episode about the movie bullshit for instance.
All I see for the top image is a long-haired Yokoi.
What the FUCK is wrong with you? You look 14. Also they've magically made your mom look more annoying to look at - sex appeal is gone. Also also your sister looks like she has fucking autism.
>buy the rights to a shitty fan comic for IP you own
>shop out an animated version to the lowest bidder
>insist it look like the first volume even though the art did improve slightly
It's like they want to tank the franchise.
God Sigh was so boring, I almost dropped the series. You could really tell it was only to showcase Haruhi's powers.
>What the FUCK is wrong with Kyon? He looks 14.
He's 15 at the start of the series, so yeah, they're doing a better job than Kyoani did, making him look 20.
Sigh was out of place, it was technically supposed to be in the 1st season but KyoAni went and did their "kook-y artistic" broadcast order, ultimately fucking up Haruhi's character development, because that was truly the purpose of that arc.
