Why doesn't he just fuck Hestia? Like seriously, how gay.
I find the MC to be incredibly annoying, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is about him. I know it's not because he doesn't fuck the goddess, she's annoying as hell. It's something else.
This is how these kinds of anime always bait and pander you. They know what they're doing and it's intentional:
"If ~I~ were in this situation, I'd totally fuck that cute girl!"
and BAM you're hooked. I know, we're all so smart that we don't fall for this shit (and have the daily cliche complain threads to prove it) but in the end we must like it because we're still watching, waiting for the next adorable scenes
>Implying the "bait and switch" tactic actually works.
The time before the sex scene between Ange and Tusk from Cross Ange took WAY TOO LONG. (And it was also a Nano-Feight / mecha show.)
We can also talk about School Days (and how the Wapanese obviously hate Makoto). And we can talk about Yosuga no Sora... But hey.
Is it because even though he has a good reason to want to become stronger, the very thing that kickstarted his EXP booster was crushing on the strongest swordswoman in the land?
School Days and YnS are eroge adaptions, they barely count.
And Cross Ange isn't a haremshit show with a male MC, plus there's plenty of sex in it well before Ange/Tusk anyway.
Because he's voiced by the seiyu who's the mc in every single harem anime.
You are viewing the scene through the MCs delusion. He is confusing the platonic love of his mothersister as erotic. Just as he confuses the pointless act of " leveling up" in a video game dungeon as being a way to impress the teacher who saved him from a bully.
Because at the moment, whilst he is deeply fond of her, he also reveres and respects her as a Goddess
And anyways, she teases him loads and loves his reactions but as she is right now in the story, she will stop at anything actually lewd and back off.
I don't mind him but why is this guy suddenly voicing EVERY MALE PROTAGONIST?
I mean, EVERY SINGLE ONE
How the fuck does he even have the time to do it? He's got to be in like, 12 places at the same time every week.
Not even Yuki Kaji was this overused.
One goes after him on stake outs whenever she can (Hestia).
She charged the dungeon in the 4th or 5th volume i think.
And when she caught him peeping on chicks she punished him for not peeping on her.
Freya wants him as her toy or no one else can have him which is why she arranged for that ape and minotaur.
She's also spying on him non stop with her divine mirror and has a room full of Bell dolls.
Syr beat up a little kid half to death because she's so devoted.
Makes him lunch every day and also tries to get as much info/leverage on him as she can.
Then there's Lilly (the kid who got beat up) who got reformed and is now obsessed with protecting him from mostly female adventurers...
Now i don't quite remember the name of the qt half-elf but she organized a full blown rescue mission on a hunch multiple times.
Showed him around where to buy stuff even if it isn't her job and bought him a kickass small-shield to boot.
I don't get it
>would so anything for you
>supportive and caring
Watching this show hurts. It fucking hurts
>he doesn't want to fuck his mother figure
Gods have a history of fucking mortals. Which she clearly wants to do. And I don't remember any stories of mortals going "eww a girl, my heart isn't ready yet, can't we just hold hands".
>And I don't remember any stories of mortals going "eww a girl, my heart isn't ready yet, can't we just hold hands".
I think Medusa in Greek Mythology would disagree with you as Posideon raped her.
>a god descends from the heavens in a rival gods temple to rape a priestess while taking on the shape of a horse.
Man I fucking love Greek mythology. Its jam packed with complete and utter hilarious cunts.
Anon, you are on /a/ and clearly watch anime.
You cant take any "superior" highground because there is none to take. You are as shit as the rest of us and love being pandered to as much as the next person here.
But Kazumi was declared winner in the latest chapter
at least until last page.
She was going to walk him home gently.
Why don't people post more Loki? Like seriously, how gay.
I don't the original for this. Do you guys have it?
>Why doesn't the meek, effeminate MC written by a 36 year old virgin just fuck all the dozens of girls that in-explicitly lust after his dick
These shows are basically gender swapped soap operas for NEETs, don't pretend otherwise.
you don't have the slightest clue. just cause he isn't the typical loser protagonist of shit anime you watch doesn't mean he's self-insert. he's not an adult so him being middle of the road is fitting and shows his intelligence.
Her whole thing is being a bigger virgin than even Athena and Artemis. They have an excuse with their adventures and shit, but Hestia pretty much just makes sure Olympus is up to code and keeps things cozy while everyone has radical times. Her pussy is divinely protected from men by Zeus's decree (because even he thought some girls are too pure to defile), which I guess is why Bell goes after dungeon girls but not her.
Besides, she's the first-born child of Kronos. She's even older than Hades. She's the oba-san to all the Olympians. Why would you want such an old lady as "Aunt Hestia?"
First, It's not like she does not want it.
Second, It's not like Zeus still has his powers.
Third, it's not like there are no other holes.
Fourth, as stated millions of times already, it's not like age isn't just a number.
Fifth, it's not like she's real.
Because these things are always like this. If you want sex, go watch porn. If they fuck there is no gag.
That's the thing. Men don't get embarrased if (by any strange circumstance) a woman is all over them and shows it openly.
That's why this is supossed to be shocking and funny (and i suposse it is shocking and funny when you haven't seen it 100000000000 times already).
Do you know there is something called "target demographic audience"? It means this show IS NOT FUCKING FOR YOU, it's for younger boys.
If this trope annoys you, that means that it's time for you to move to other kind of shows.
Because in Greek Mythology, Hestia was a virgin goddess so maybe it has something to do with her being pure maybe they'll bring up something like if she fucked someone she can't be a goddess anymore so ending will probably be her giving up her god status to marry and fuck MC
or her being raped then mc becomes edgy or something
This is the next SAO, but not (yet) mainstream popular enough that anonhipsters are obligated to hate it, so they're getting all in on the bandwagon early because they secretly really liked SAO
Prove me wrong.
>Why doesn't he just fuck Hestia? Like seriously, how gay.
The better question is
why is Zeus inside Bell when he knew how pure Bell is and is less likely to fuck Hestia when his original goal is to fuck Hestia?
Just saying I'd be unsurprised if the love-fest stops as soon as the hivemind deems it "too popular with normalfags, eugh". Same thing that happened with SnK, KlK, AgK, etc.
Sure, you can say these shows already had a designated hatebase before, but it was just after they blew up in the mainstream that just mentioning them on /a/ became akin to shitposting itself
he can't read japanese, but he understands the way japanese use it? i'm embarrassed for him.
anyone who knows japanese understands she's an oppai loli. only filthy plebs argue otherwise
his whole family was killed off and he was barely loved by anyone growing up, and doesn't understand that Hestia's love is not familial but sexual, and he sees her as part of his family that he never had.
Spoilered because actual spoilers that some faggot dropped without spoiler censor because they're fucking asshole redditors that don't understand that spoiling shit ain't okay.
>LN readers love Ais
no. that's just the aisfag who loves her so much. all the girls are pretty enjoyable to read, but nothing compares to hestia and bell.
i really don't want ais to win.i hope she goes off somewhere and my god wins happiness with bell. i'm glad she trained my guy, bell, but she doesn't deserve his hand
>To be honest Hestia should also get a spin-off for herself.
By the sheer number of fanart that has popped within a week, this is almost a given.
hestia has a 4koma spin-off, kinda. ais isn't an unlikeable bitch character. her story shows a different interesting aspect of the world that can't be shown with bell. shipping hestia+bell doesn't mean you won't read her story. i've got the book myself, but i llike hestia too much to read them now. i think after the next volume i'll read them.
i think hestia will win. volume 6 really was pulling my heartstrings during the scenes with hestia. even though he got her help, again, it didn't seem like volume 3. he was really focused with hestia. even before the big match he left by hestia. to me, the relationship with ais seems superficial in the face of hestia and bells
it isn't impossible for the author to place ai
plus Shinmai is comedy gold for how the guy can call the girls he's living with his "imoutou" and without missing a beat start feeling em up like he's got 5 more minutes to live and is damn well going to make the most of it.
>yfw Zeus gets a woman pregnant by transforming himself into a waterfall of piss and throwing himself onto her
>all of the volumes are top sellers on amazon.co.jp
>fatalpulse read all of it in a single day and liked it (looking for material for his doujinshi with the dark skinned twins)
>Disappointed by his lack of male heirs, Acrisius asked an oracle if this would change. The oracle told him that he would be killed by his daughter's son. She was childless and, meaning to keep her so, he shut her up in a bronze tower or cave. But Zeus came to her in the form of golden rain, that streamed in through the ceiling and down into her womb. Soon after, their child Perseus was born
Greek mythos, you so crazy
how is hestia a side character? that doesn't even make any sense. if she's a side character then somebody like ais is a background character. she's the main heroine. deal with it. who is bell always saving and interacting with? hestia. who is always sleeping with him? hestia.
Do you also walk your waifu home gently anon?
It's actual fantasy, not "trapped in a game"-style, BUT with game-like features in the setting (they explicitly reference things like stats and skills etc), sooooo..... whatever, I guess ?
Fucking this, there's like 3 characters in Cross Ange that were still virgins by the end.
Anyone who ever bitches about all girls in anime being pure innocent maidens needs to watch Cross Ange and endure 25 episodes of slutty bitches being violent cunts.
there was heroes that were incredible before gods descended. it's a world with elves, dragons, and spirits. gods aren't the only way to get magic and so on. it's just they're the easiest way.
How can men stand in the way of such cuteness?
In Greek mythology Hestia is the
virgin goddess of the hearth, home, and family
##Developer-kun needs to wake the fuck up and let people post audio webms on all boards
So far it's been a pretty faithful adaptation, leaving aside a few details.
For example, the novel starts with Bell talking if it's wrong or not picking up girls in a dungeon, while the anime starts explaining the whole Goddess/Humanity deal. Also, Bell's fight before going to the bar is a lot longer and a little more detailed, whilst the anime pretty much skipped it (not like it was relelvant HOW he fought, anyway).
the reason Bell attracts so many because zeus charisma + Bell's rabbit like appearance, i love how the fucker power struggles to control Bell just to fuck women, even death couldn't cure his horny self
It's gotten to the point where I just can't believe these spoilers. I haven't read the LN but this anime just does not give off this kind of impression. Oh well, it'll just be a bigger surprise when these details are revealed right?
the anime does not obviously gotta keep the children safe. Its going dark though, part everyone likes Hestia is because she is literally the warmth that shines the darkness of Bell's adventures and misfortunes.
I fully support a Hestia spin off. She is even great with children!
We are finally entering a new era. Era where all lolis will be respected regardless of their breast size. No more fighting, no more oppai discrimination. No more borders, one nation of lolicons united as one!
THOUGH DICK, UNITY
OPPAI LOLI BEST LOLI
I would follow her to the end of time
My Loli Ranks:
when I hear shit like this, I always thought: "what is the realistic context behind this?"
To me, it sounds like a priestess was fucked by horse in a temple and they attributed it to the mysterious ways of gods.
>My entire existence as a man and my male self-insert is to get laid.
truly perfect. a life without hestia isn't a life worth living
I am mentally disturbed, but whenever I see anything moe, naive, or helpless and cute, I just have a giant urge to punch him/her in the face. Especially this girl.
I am not even trying to come off as a edgemaster; I just can't stand it for whatever reason .
Hestia needs someone who can fight for her. Any other men would never be able to walk out of that room. They would spend all day either try to put it in her or fap to her all day. They would never have any strength left to fight monsters.
I just read some chapters into the manga.
Goddamn, Freya is such a whore. I hate her so much I want to rape her and make her pregnant
Even Irish gods are bros.
Which deity would you familia it up with?
>Isis and her sister Nephthys went looking for these pieces, but could only find thirteen of the fourteen. Fish had swallowed the last piece, his phallus. With Thoth's help she created a golden phallus, and attached it to Osiris’s body. She then transformed into a kite, and with the aid of Thoth’s magic conceived Horus the Younger.
Going with her will be damn fun.
if it's against the laws of the universe for me to be with hestia then i pick some god who governs over death to prepare for what's to come
Join the familia of all the waifu goddesses.
>I find the MC to be incredibly annoying, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is about him. I know it's not because he doesn't fuck the goddess, she's annoying as hell. It's something else.
because he's a bland almost gary stu who gets random convenient power ups and literally every female character who meets him wants to fuck him senseless (including all of the godesses, and some of the gods); in the LNs most of his battle scenes are shown from a bystander's perspective while the bystanders are in "awe" like they're watching a race in Initial D.
Its fucking awful.
you watch this anime for all the delicious best girls in it. you don't watch it for any other reason.
That was a shitty post, anon. You made me sad.
jesus christ this guy is fucking OP as fuck
why the hell are the other characters OP as fuck in this series?
Haven't read the LN so correct me if things take a different direction later in the series.
>bland almost gary stu
He's been getting put down pretty often and his personality is pretty fun, especially his chemistry with Hestia.
>yfw the number of Hestia doujin at Comiket this year
i bet you self-insert as hachiman. bell isn't bland and it's great watching him grow with each volume bell is only bland to people without any personal insight.
a diamond is just a stone when you're a brain dead.
but Bell is usually fun and his interactions with other characters can be interesting, his fights are pathetic and the only time the bystanders are in awe was in the time between the minotaur fight which he used all the techniques Ais teach him and showed off to impress her (which they think the battle is reckless and naive, they then remembered the argonaut story) and the time where he use his charged fire bolt on a small dragon.
>Yfw Comiket is nothing but Hestia doujins and merch
>Yfw Comiket is turned into Hestiaket
Joining a popular goddess like Loki has its perks. Lots of money, you'll be well equipped, and have lots of friends.
But bonding with a weak and unpopular Hestia must feel pretty comfy as well in its own way.

you haven't read the latest books at all.
you'll change your mind once the latest books have been translated.
So when are we gonna get a Hestia feet thread?
Which one would you have an alleyway stand with?
You mean the part
where a blacksmith with OP magic sword, a level elf adventurer and samurai like chick and Hermes help him fight off 100 scrub adventures that threaten his familia and threaten Hestia ? No that was great, i love how Apollo gets taken all his shit for being a cocky bitch
no he won't. bell bleeds and eats dirt for any achievement he gets. in most light novels or anime it's actually obnoxious to watch the crap mc getting injured cause we know the results. with bell though all the punishment makes the victory even better.
Too cute. Would
Social commentary on the break up of the USSR and its impact on the following constituent states. Fascinating.
Is Destiny of Spirits worth it for a casual playthrough?
why don't you ask your mommy?
if you don't like it why are you in this thread?
anyone else hate how likeable they make ais? i hope she finds a good guy that's not bell
sao is all forced drama the second they leave the virtual reality. the author even went back and started a story about the time while they're trapped cause he can't create tension otherwise.
every volume of danmachi is a nailbiter while i can't even be bothered to read past volume 8 of sao.
Ais and Bell is way to childish and pure to be considered as romantic option, i mean who the fucks plays hide and seek in front of each other?
> in most light novels or anime it's actually obnoxious to watch the crap mc getting injured cause we know the results. with bell though all the punishment makes the victory even better.
This is what literally everyone says about their favourite anime/manga/ln. It's the same exact shit, you're just biased.
God damn it. Did you spend any monies on it?
>terrible captain, terrible leader, terrible slut
nope. i've got plenty of light novels under my belt and am making a judgement based on how it's written. the different betwen danmachi and the average light novel is heaven and earth.
Did anyone foresee Hestia's boom in popularity?
I mean when I talked about the LN with the 3 other people on /a/, sure some said "Hestia best waifu" but there was nothing special that made her stand out compared to other waifus.
also forget to mention
>10 bucks for a string
what a gyp
someone already did that
How old is Bell? 17?
rather than surprised i'm happy. i didn't expect the popularity, but when the sun shines even the blind can feel it.
i knew hestia was the best and it's only natural for others to enjoy my opinion.
They appear to be not ordinary maids.
This instantly made me crack a smile a mile wide
>implying hestia's ass isn't also thebest.jpg
There's a reason she's best girl of the season, anon. Literal perfection.
Yeah me too. I picked up this thinking it was another obscure anime with a kirito voiced clone, and I got shoe voiced MC and the birth of a oppai loli godess, cant be more happy.
it's a known issue with firefox
Demeter is even more of a sex demon than Fryea.
Besides the point but will the manga keep getting translated now that Yen Press licensed this? I know an anon dumped all those chapter in feb but there's been no word since then even though ch 31-33 is out now raw. Fuck I hate Yen Press.
I like the serie so far but it bugs me how the little faggot goes on just because he has a skill you could easily call plot armor instead of getting gud on its own, it's like saying "oh sorry you can't get strong by gitting gud if you aren't the chosen one".
Also it also looks we're reaching the harem shit zone.
He has an unique, his SKill accelerates his growth, he needs to fight and train for that. He would get stronger even without it but it would take much more time, he wants to reach Ais's level as soon as possible, he's a filthy lvl 1 and she is lvl 5, how long would it take without this Skill?
Or her earthling form, Tamamo.
I know it makes sense writing-wise unless you want to slap a stupid timeskip in the first few chapters but it's still "good luck you have this super rare skill otherwise you'd be a shit who has to train for years like everyone else".
Also we're probably going to get one of those cheesy "I want to protect everyone aaaaaaa! -> Sudden increase of a buttload of levels" final fight but maybe I'm just being negative there.
