Is the TV series still sponsored by Subaru?

Also, making it a magical girls anime when there's no cute girls racing anime always seemed like a dumb idea for me.

Probably dismissed when everyone saw it was sponsored by subaru

>>124074092
Huh. Kinda weird, seeing as the TV anime doesn't actually look all that worse than the ONA. Was the ONA that much of a success they decided that giving them enough money to afford making a full series would be a good idea?
>>
>>124074172
Why would anyone do that?

But when it comes to commercials, I'm still mad One Off didn't get a TV series instead of this.

you would figure there would be more hype for a magical girl show after Yuyuyu
>>
>>124074241

The consensus from what I've seen on /a/ generally seems to hate or not think Gainax can make anything good anymore, so not really a surprise.
>>
>>124074241
>gainax hype
Old Gainax is dead, though and the hype died with it. This actually is a lot better than I expected them to be capable of doing, I didn't know they had enough staff left to even make a full length TV show.

Is Gainax dead for good?

It's magical girl anime there main girl has canonical male love interest

So, like every other episode thread on /a/?
>>
>>124074835
You don't need to watch the ONA to get what's going on.
>>
>>124074172
Every TV anime made today is a 24 minute long commercial made to sell toys, character merchandise, or the material that it is adapting. For ignorant neckbeards to shun this because it has the backing of Subaru is both hypocritical and laughable.
>>
>>124074765
It's the 5-star safety rating.
>>
>>124074835
It's not a continuation, it's an alternate version. But watch the ONA anyway, it looks better, and you don't have anything better to do with 30 minutes of your life anyway or you wouldn't be here.
>>
>>124074903
But was that boycott even a thing on /a/? I wasn't around when the first episode aired, but it honestly sounds more like something reddit would do.

>>124075007
nobody is watching this show because it's bad. /a/ doesn't do boycotts or else Kyoani threads would be dead too.

YuYuYu actually sold well, something this will never do.
>>

Subaru has been breaking sales records for years
>>
>>124076742
It doesn't matter if it's used for distant shots if those shots are still close enough for the CGI to be clearly visible. Seeing the artystyle and design of the characters change from 1 scene to the next is always awful and never looks good. If you can tell that it's CGI in an othwerwise hand-drawn show through normal watching then it was a poor use of CGI.
>>
I'm actually really enjoying this.

Do you think Gainax will go for their usual dark/crazy twist that is also popular with the genre nowadays or will it stay like it is now?
>>
>>124074610
If your thread isn't full within 60 minutes of shitposting the world ends, anon.

Slow and comfy threads are against the law now.
>>
>>124077102
I hope it stays like this. I guess the weird fate manipulation thing could lead to something dark.
>>
>>124077102
I think 6 episode will end in same place as ova
Subaru wearing Minato's jacket and waiting for him, and after it we will get some twists
>>
So let me see if I got the exposition right:

Each of the girls actually live in their own alternate timelines. But when the alien crash-landed on the planet it somehow threw time-space out of whack. So each of the girls came to the one, same world. Or perhaps the worlds merged together somehow. This is why Subaru's and Aoi's backstories don't match (in Subaru's world Aoi moved away, in Aoi's world Subaru moved away), and also why each girl had the same seat in class. I am willing to bet that once the alien fixes his ship and the time-space continuum gets back in order, the girls would be forced to say goodbye as they go back to their own worlds.

How'd I do?
>>
>>124077102
I think, or at least hope, that it stays like it currently is.

I don't think it'll go somewhere dark but I have a feeling it might be heavy later.
>>
I wonder, did Subaru had red haired girl as her girlfriend in the Aoi universe?
>>
>>124077411
You left out the part at the end where they are all reunited somehow despite being separated forever.
>>
>>124077411
It may be that, or it just could be idiotic try at sounding profound and emotional, because Aoi said "you're the Subaru I know". Let's see how it goes.
>>
>>124077411
I could see that being it. But didn't the space shit crash something like 7 years ago? They weren't specific on that, and the world/timeline merging everyone to the same school seems like a recent development.
>>
>>124076709
But yuyuyu is the symphogear of its season
>>
>>124074894
Lurk more. If it cant pass bump limit then it's shit and this anime never has nor will.
>>
>>124077549
That's the weirdest part yet.
>>
I hope you guys are ready for when one of the characters has an emotional breakdown when the purpose of them finding the stars is revealed.
>>
>>124077656
So far it's like pikmin but with cute magical girls: their goal has been explained.
>>
Much better than episode 1.
>>
I liked that song Aoi and Subaru sang. I still can't get used to their magic sticks or whatever having car engine sounds.
>>
>>124073892
So how much suffering is there? Is it generic?
>>
>>124077690
The possibility that they're all being lied to isn't out of the question.
>>
>>124077899
None. No.
>>
>>124077575
Please don't insult Symphogear.
>>
>>124077899
Even if it went the suffering route there'd be none right now. But by the looks of it there won't be any in the future either.

I thought I was resistant to moeblobs by now, but dayum, she's cute

I want stroke Subaru's horns.
>>
Aoi best girl.
>>
>>124077411
>in Subaru's world Aoi moved away, in Aoi's world Subaru moved away
They didn't really move away, they're still in the same town they just go to different schools. At first I interpreted that episode 1 scene as them both going to different high schools after middle school and not talking to eachother anymore and blaming the other, but some alternate timeline thing seems likely after this episode.

Aoi was friends with that one chick in Subaru's original world, but in this one where they're all together it's like Aoi doesn't even know that chick anymore.
>>
>>124078230
They belong to her villain husbando.
>>
>>124078230

If I pull off those horns will she pass out?
>>
>Mazda will never sponsor an anime
;_;
>>
This is developing better than I expected. The first episode was already better than the ONA in most places, but this episode was nice new material over the ONA. The best part for me was them getting the club room though. I can't wait for them to have the cute and cozy and candy-like room from the ONA again.

I need more Yellow doing silly transformations though. And more of purple's stone-faced chuuni antics.
>>
>>124078343
She will just grow even more.
>>
>>124077549
The alien said he summoned one of them for help, but that it was difficult. He might have only done that recently and it was what caused, or somehow instigated, the merging.

The girls said it happened each time they got a new member, so all of the worlds didn't merge at the same time. It's like the girls are coming into a new world and pulling everything else with them.
>>
>>124078593

That and a lot of other scenes were so silly, I loved it. Gainax is still alive in there somewhere.
>>
>>124078691
They grow, and she turn more cute.

There is still a chance that Minato is a girl, but i doubt it though.

I think the directing in this is surprisingly well done. I thought all talent had left Gainax but I guess some of their good directors stuck around.
>>
>>124079319
The stereotype is about the kind of lesbians who exist in real life.
>>
>>124079519
>>124079433
It still counts as yuri if she doesn't realize it's a boy
>>
>>124079568
Nanoha and Fate are real, they just live in a parallel universe.
>>
>>124079433
There is still hope for Aoi. They gave Minato "fake" horns so maybe he isn't destined for Subaru anymore.
>>
>>124076251
Only good part so far.

I'm giving this the 3 episodes rule because Gainax, but I'm 90% sure I'm gonna drop it.

Went to MAL to check out the synopsis and I already had it in my plan to read, funny enough. Will mentally put it higher on the queue, even though I don't read manga that much even though I should. Thanks for the suggestion though.

I feel like the main characters being called "Vanilla" and "Chocolat" had something to do with my previous interest. I picked up Gochuumon and several other anime because of that, too. It's so dumb, but I love when they name them like that. Same with Amagi Brilliant Park.

Like the stars, they seems near but they aren't.

Seems like it. Whenever a new girl joined, it seemed to create a new timeline as well. Before they joined, some of them might've been leading different lives and not know it.
