What does /a/ think about Arslan Senki? Japan seems to love it as it it's doing exceedingly well in its ratings. It was recently in the top 10 most watched anime of the week with over 4.5 million viewers.

I want to protect Arslan.

>>124654049
Was Nanatsu on this list before Arslan took it's timeslot?
>>
>>124654049
Wow, really? I thought Japan would hate it. Is Arakawa's manga complete shounen dogshit or something?
>>
>>124654049
Seems a little dull but there are signs of greatness in it.

I'll keep watching for a while longer, see if it delivers.
>>
>>124654683
Arslan was popular as fuck back in the day. Having the FF designer around really helped with its popularity too.
>>
>>124654683
It just got a really good timeslot and it's a legitimately good show.
>>124654812
I'm caught up with the manga adaptation. Keep going anon. I can tell this series really does have potential.
>>
>>124654049

You realize that means a 4.5% share of the TV audience for that program right, not 4.5 million people. What the fuck even made you decide that statistical unit meant million anyway? There's nothing there that says that or would even make anyone think that and that's not how ratings even work? Like holy fuck 4chan learn what you're talking about for once instead of just making shit up.

4.5% is still really really good mind you. Also I see the wretchedly bad Denpa Kyoushi is no longer getting the ratings boost from airing before Detective Conan anymore.

Probably because most of the viewer ratings on Wikipedia for normalfag shows are done in the millions now

some of the backgrounds are cool

Why is Arslan so adorable?

I thought it would be fujoshi pandering crap when I found out the white haired person was a prince, and not a princess. I was mildly pleased to find out it wasn't all that bad.

>>124654049
Is basically Gensou Suikoden, the animation, I couldn't be more happy with it.

The source material of the source material for the anime its been out for decades, its not just some random LN adaptation.

Now we only need a good adaptation of Guin Saga and we will have quality fantasy anime for a while
>>
>>124654049
It's alright. If anything I'm happy that it's long enough because I'm really sick of 1-cour manga/LN/VN promos.
>>
>>124658263
Japan loves fags, its not logically flawed to be weary of this anime being fujoshi bait if you don't know anything about it.
>>
>>124658450
>I don't know what fujoshi means but I'll use it any way
So when you watched FMA, you automatically assumed it was fujoshi from the designs? Answer honestly.
>>
>>124654609
It was there at least at times. I think it had 5.9 rating at some point.
>>
>>124658450
>any anime with an attractive male cast is fujoshi
I guess almost all FF and SMT games are now fujoshi pandering by this retarded logic
>>
It looks promising. I look forward to watching it when it comes off as opposed to putting it off till later.
>>
I've got it at a 7/10 so far. First episode was good, 2nd and 3rd were kinda meh but 4th was good again. Think it'll probably be an 8 overall

first episode was heavy on bad cgi
dropped

I hope you keep responding with that picture. It amuses the shit out of me.

Still bummed that Lidenshit is animating this show, sure the directing and story are above average but the animation, not so much. Enjoy your sakuga houkais fight scenes.

I haven't watching anything past first episode but my point still stands with your pic related. That's poorly animated.

Turks,lost the war.I never liked the show anyway

Some Mainstream American shows maybe where that's a realistic statistical possibility.
>>
>>124658339

The original novel series is written by the guy that did Legend of The Galactic Heroes with illustrations by the guy that does the concept artwork for the Final Fantasy series. The manga adaptation which this TV series is based on is by the author/artist of Full Metal Alchemist. This is indeed extremely far from being your typical seasonal anime that is super niche but people mistake for not niche because it moves Blu-Rays to otaku collectors and people seem to think that's the sole indicator of somethings popularity.

>>124658450

If only you knew just how wrong you are. Japan has a highly oppressed LGBT community that gets the same kind of treatment that Japan's Bushido business oriented culture loves to give to just about any present subculture within it's cultural dominion. It's not full on Russia lock you up because you're gay and protest about it level bad, but it's pretty damn bad.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_Japan

Don't confuse anime fetishism and fujoshi ideas with Japan proper.

Also a seirei no moribito sequel would Be nice I think there are more novels.
