Just got caught up on The Rolling Girls. God damn this is the best episode so far, and that's saying something.
Why isn't this show getting enough recognition?
It was ridiculously awesome. I really hope the last couple episodes live up to the hype that's been building up in the last few.
Yeah it's good but the whole she's alien thing is going to be the downfall of this show. It's going to try and explain everything about the stones, her mom and her mom's plans; then it's gonna fall flat on its face.
It's good at being nonsensical fun with good animation and great OST.
Yeah it's giving me flashbacks from the very stupid twist that KLK had, which almost made me drop the show immediately. I'm praying they doesn't take themselves too seriously and it works out fine.
I almost dropped it on this dumb pipsqueak's arc. It seriously pissed me off that such an evil character can have such a cute character design. She deserved to be thrown in jail.
And then I actually dropped it after watching thus dumb as shit character asshole it up in the next arc.
I may pick this up when the proper subs get caught up, but I really do not enjoy the show. I found that I was only watching it out of habit, and that the OP was better than the actual anime.
>No fucking idea what the character is saying because of the stupid revving sound effect they use
That's the joke
You can insinuate what he's saying anyway from the characters' reactions
I never thought it was possible for a person who watches subtitled shows every day to not understand the purpose of subtitles. If you had watched Commie's sub (just mentioning them because they're the only group that took the time to translate the Japanese subtitles for this character), then you would not say that you could "insinuate what he's saying anyway from the characters' reactions."
>If you had watched Commie's sub (just mentioning them because they're the only group that took the time to translate the Japanese subtitles for this character)
Cthune (Cthuko/caffiene) did as well
The point stands. There was no running gag about not being able to understand what the character was saying. It as an oversight on Funimation's part, and then Senketsu didn't follow through by actually looking at the TV raws.
I am enjoying this way more than anything in the past year, and I do find it a little bizarre how many people have found it too boring. Granted episode 3 was the weakest episode and that probably lost most people. There's a good chance it'll be my AOTY. Its a real feel-good show.
I can agree, this show has got me absolutely hooked. The music, the scenery, the art, story; loving all of it. OP has been in my head for a few days. Definitely a contender for my AOTY.
muh fucking sides man.
you guys are too much.
>mfw Death Parade and Yuri Kuma are more popular than Rolling Girls
Geisha hired him to get them back together, he went over the top with it because he was extremely bored
There are implied words in the English language. The implied word was 'that' which was denoted by a comma.
"I told you, I was killing time." flows better than "I told you that I was killing time" in spoken form.
You're explaining it wrong because you're an idiot apparently.
The fact that they were even given a version without subtitles at the bottom of the screen shows that the original version is one where you can't understand what he's saying.
The station this aired on in Japan gave it subtitles, not the people who made it.
>The station this aired on in Japan gave it subtitles, not the people who made it.
This implies that what the character said was comprehensible to native speakers, which it was not.
Uh-huh.... I still don't see where you're going with this, unless you think that the string of words, "I told you that," constitutes a complete, stand-alone sentence in English.
Nah, you need the 'that' to announce you are making a preposition, thus not having to independent clauses.
'I was killing time' belongs to the word 'that'. You can shorten the sentence by turning the 'that' into a comma, but you cannot get rid of it while keeping it as one sentence.
Scenes like these are when you can declare a show AOTS and Rolling Girls has them every two episodes.
Commas are used in poetic, dramatic, lyrical and non-standard english to indicate a brief pause in spoken dialogue, usually where one takes a breath, pauses for effect, or attempts to create a rhythm, to the cadence of their speech.
It is grammatically correct to use commas to indicate these things when writing a script intended as dialogue spoken allowed, and is considered an instruction to the speaker. This extends to subtitles, as the subtitles themselves are a script indicating both the diction and manner of speech.
In standard grammatical english, a comma does not indicate a pause whatsoever, which is a common misconception. The 2 uses are separate and distinct.
It's actually common sense.
Funimation didn't have a version with subtitles so it's not part of the original episode. It's not like they've taken Japanese subtitles out of things before, especially not for streaming.
It's not part of the original episode, so that leaves it up to either the station requesting subtitles, or WIT hates Funimation. This isn't hard.
Does anyone know if there are tracklists out for the new CDs? I have a feeling Stones won't be on the Song Collection "Eiyu ni Akogarete" thing.
Also what the fuck is this cardboard shit? It's not even the same height as normal CD cases.
Why does Funi always have to play around with the color saturation? If it isn't too dark it's almost tumblr-tier.
>I can't argue with you so let me just insult you
Granted you've been doing that the whole time but..
More like the Japanese are just more considerate to their audience. Or Funimation didn't think to ask because they thought "oh this is a joke". You have no argument other then that this means something to you for some reason.
Don't act like ORIGINAL EPISODE means something sacred in this instance either. You're really reaching with that. It's just subtitles added by the station.
There is a soundtrack out on March 18 and a song collection with five covers of Blue Hearts songs out on April 1. I can't figure out if "Stones" will be on the song collection or if there will eventually be another CD.
official soundtrack comes out on 3/18, it only has the background stuff and not the insert songs
the rest of the insert songs should be out on April 1st which is just a little bit after the show ends
Linda Linda or we riot
well the first theme song collection had
>Hito ni Yasashiku
>Tsuki no Bakugeki
>1000 no Violin
and after that, in insert songs we have had
>Eiyuu ni Akogarete
So that's 4 out of 5, which leaves us Linda Linda for the last song.
Then again, Stones is an anime original so it does leave the question if it gets a separate release or not. It's not on the OST list that's for sure.
Also if anyone else is interested about all these songs, you can check the pastebin
I just got confused because all the descriptions for the song collection say
>Song collection CD from anime series "Rolling Girls" features five insert songs sung by The Rolling Girls, which are covers of songs by THE BLUE HEARTS.
And Stones is an original, right?
Stones is indeed an original but written by another rock band vocalist which I can't recall right now.
Also if we follow the pattern of new insert song every two episodes, then we would have to remove Stones from the list. So we just have to wait and see. Stones is the song I want the most though.
I am so ready for this. I really like how this anime is kinda like like a string of music videos. Why, if I had the know how or the long term interest I would make AMV's of each arc set to the song that played in them.
