Battle Royale preparations in progress.
Yet another mediocre Kyoani show that somehow gets more discussion than trending shows. Honestly if it wasn't for all the fluff, semen demons or boobs nobody would give a fuck about Amagi, Beyond or Sound.
Best KyoAni show since Hyouka and Hyouka was best TV anime of all times
This is not tumblr.
>fluff, semen demons, boobs
masterful direction, great visuals, subtle characters and their psychology insight and group dynamics, painstalking realism in depiction of subject, great soundtrack, realistic drama, all characters including minor ones brougth alive and unique, appealing to more refined audience than otaku shows you watch etc.
So why Kumiko is in bad relationship with her sister currently? While it obviously she tries, or least tried to emulate her and looked up to her before.
Kumiko at home, speaking to her, seems timid, pretty much humiliated. So whatever happened is not just her sisters fault (unless Kumiko understands her beign angry on sister is stupid and childish, but cant help it)
I was piano player and participated in competitions with a club as school kid and was under impression every singke kid actually hates music and was forced into it by parents, especially since they had to try hard. Nothing more irritating than spending hours practicing instrument while you are not interested about it - pretty much what Kumiko does now.
Started genuinely enjoying playing only after that pressure was gone.
A new Kumiko hairstyle this week
It seems for now intentially contrast is represented between Kumiko at school and home.
At School she tries to act mature, "cool beuty", trying to keep emotions in check and only letting her true thoughs get out occasionaly against her will.
At home, she is childish (represented by looks as well), speaks to cactuses, poutes, rebels against sister, entirely different voiceacting.
Reina`s hair is too fluff, unrealistically, out of this dimension, dog hair fluff.
Reminds me of Dandelion loli.
>At School she tries to act mature, "cool beuty", trying to keep emotions in check and only letting her true thoughs get out occasionaly against her will.
Also it's an attempt to attract/impress her chosen mate.
>you will never be her prince charming
Can't believe I waited till episode 3 to watch Hibike Euphonium. I don't even like kyoanus but this show is fucking amazing, refreshing, and original. I almost want to start learning to play an instrument. Fuck you faggots shitting on this show.
>Used to take piano lessons when I was 6 and loved it
>Moved, mom tried to push/pressure me into taking lessons again
>Got older, mom starts more or less forcing me to do performances for relatives and people at parties just so she can show off how great her son is at playing piano
>Get fed up and dropped it
>Have a keyboard in my room, enjoy playing it every now and then until my mom walks in and starts pressuring me to play something for her
>Same thing happened with singing
Sax was the only instrument I didn't have this problem with because I genuinely enjoyed playing it throughout my entire time I was able to play it.
I thought the part with trumpet girl at the end by herself was really nice.
This scene aside, they are all CONSTANTLY blushing. Should be used more sparely to accent in scenes that require it, instead they blush all the time.
Even when Kumiko speaks with her sister they both are red as if in awkward dialog after impulsive sex.
That's just part of the design
THIS is when they are blushing
I hope Lipstick gets more screentime. Reminds me of someone but i cant pinpoint who.
Hmm, infact i know who - Lum Invader.
The thing is, I still enjoy piano/keyboard and like playing it every now and then, but it's mostly just for myself. I don't like to make it a thing or put on a performance or else I just end up hating it.
Hell, all Reina has to do is speak to her and Kumiko gets sopping wet.
Asuka is overrated.
Reina is queen.
Kumiko by chance entered her sister`s room and found her having sex with a random boy that was chanting "yeah! blow my instrument! circular bearthing baby!". Sister played it down as Kumiko just being a kid and not understanding adult matters. Thats why they are so awkward right now.
I want to see what the artstyle of their next show will be like. I kinda wanna see them go back to more simple-looking shows like K-on and Nichijou, or do something like Lucky Star again.
Disclaimer: I like the newer artstyles as well.
Remove Leina`s wig, and you`ll not even recognize her, unlike Asuka which has supermodel figure and plastique of a cat.
If next show is Miriad Color Wars it`ll be more generic shounen like Amagi/Strike the Blod/Index designs.
If its Coppelia (which will not happen), they`ll go full fluff -even more fluff then here
If its Violet Evergarden - hopefully something unique and refined.
I didn't know /a/ had so many tryhard faggots.
Shouldn't you guys be studying or doing homework on time or something?
This show hits me right in the fucking feels.
>joined band due to genuinely liking music
>never really understood the concept of practice
>didn't have friends to practice with or anyone at home pressuring me to practice
>constantly underperforming, become increasingly self-conscious about playing to the point where playing outside the ensemble is practically impossible
>terrified at the thought of playing, but keep signing up to band from middle all the way through highschool out of some convoluted desire to keep trying
>ends up fucking up entire school life as I start playing sick just to get out of band class
>anxiety from band class is what most likely grew into the general/social anxiety I have today
Don't be a slacker /a/, unless NEEThood is your life dream.
Someone pointed this out last thread, but it's more or less a way of saving face in front of others. The slackers don't -really- want to compete in Nationals, but they don't want to look like slackers like Kumiko's old friend did by putting their hands up only to have fun.
You aren't alone, which is why I think striving for nationals (especially when they will likely get a silver at nationals since only the top tier get gold) is not really worth it. Whatever I guess.
Have we found Kyoani's Aizen?
what is wrong with this child?
Dude you realize even in the best (highschool) bands you're going to have slackers, in fact it's usually the talented ones are often split down the middle, 50 % super serious 50% "lmao what's practice".
It's not your lack if effort, it's your lack of talent and fear of realizing your mediocrity. That's why you avoided band.
Justifying failure is way easier if you see it as laziness.
Why are the horns lazy? You'd think they'd work harder since they play a relatively obscure and difficult instrument.
>>124365423 is objectively better than pic-related. Seriously, how can you fuck up something so huge as wearing a different colored ribbon? Uncultured pig.
Me second from the right.
My nigger of fine taste. If only Japan would realize.
>go check pixiv earlier for hopefully cute fanart of the best couple and tubas
>it's all just the main girls, yuri or porn
>the only piece of fanart featuring Gotou is porn of him pounding the lady sensei
>it's not even him fucking his chubby gf
10/10 mad. Fucking elevens can't even deliver the right fanart.
I'm really enjoying the show so far, it's pretty great. Sensei isn't fucking around those kids asked for this. Shit's going to get real.
Asuka is best girl, followed by Kumiko.The golden age of fluffy has begun.
damn slut. I wonder if Goto got jealous his girlfriend thought so too.
I knew there was something off about this guy the moment he started teaching.
How can we cheer up Ponytail-tan?
>ask for no fun
>get no fun
>protest about there being a lack of fun
What music does she listen to? She is constantly with mp3 player and headphones, in this scene too.
Either she actualy cares about music, but considers this club a failure thus not worth the effort - instead spending time listening to Haydn performances, or she listens to Jazz and joined wanting to play jazz tunes but is stuck with uninteresting shit instead.

>People actually believe this
You can personally relate on your blog. If you don't actually reference the anime or characters like >>124364985, you're just jerking off about your shitty personal experiences and going further and further off tangent from the actual topic.
It's good show but how is that refreshing and original.
And it seems too real for Japan so they don't like it , sadly.
Gotou has top tier taste in women.
Fact: If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife.
So from my personal point of view, get an ugly girl to marry you.
The "point" of the movie was that Neiman sacrificed most of his life in pursuit of greatness. The director when asked about what he though would happen to Neiman is that he would die at age 30 of drug overdose. Sounds like merits to me.
the cutest couple. Gotou is a grumpy grandpa while Riko is a sweetie pie.
If Gotou were a girl what instrument would he play?
A Fallopian Tuba.
If Kumiko were a princess what instrument would she play?
If OP were part of the band what instrument would he play?
If Haruka played with a vibrator what would it be called?
What does Shuuichi get if he thinks about Kumiko too much?
we are living a historical momment here annons
it might be another 10 years until kyoani makes another good anime
I believe it comes completely randomly: they have their stupid criteria for choosing what they adapt, and eventually something will meet their criteria but will also be have a good story.
it may never happen again if you ask me
