I'd be more impressed if it wasn't for the fact that Shirow Miwa was already a westaboo.
How long before a Dowman Sayman doujin?
This is what happens when spoonfeeding goes out of hand, no one bothers lurking. I warned you lot about spoonfeeding. Now we have a bunch of foreign /co/fags trying to force their opinions onto the board. I won't be surprised if /a/ becomes /b/ 3.0 by next year.
He's drawn some nightmare and fairy tales/muzz fanart.
I don't care for this series at all, but this is published in Japan, in a Japanese magazine, by a Japanese mangaka. Isn't that enough to warrant a containment thread for the people who like this garbage? If they start to discuss the animated series, that's when it should be removed. But while the discussion is centered on the manga, I don't see the issue.
The containment thread should be the GENERAL over on /co/. We don't have spill over from /vp/ over Pokemon Special or the anime, outside of Serena posters. Nothing about Legend of Zelda or other official manga of video games.
Keep your Western IP over on /co/
I feel like that was a pretty brief and unspectacular first chapter. It was just the Ruby trailer with the rest of the characters showing up, having some exposition about Dust then 'to be continued'.
Nope, we're not doing this shit again. Quit pretending people here give a shit.
The action scenes were shit too. You couldn't tell what was going on half the time and it had hardly any backgrounds. Shirow's a good artist, but he absolutely sucks at paneling and connecting shit together.
Yeah more or less. It's so artificial. It goes from an action scene to the team showing up then "Hey can you explain dust for me?"
The dialogue is even more stilted than the series, if that's possible
>Japanese author publishes a manga in a Japanese magazine
Western cartoon belong on the japanese manga and anime board.
Characters and story are manga related. Things like "season 3 is still as good as season1?" "How was X episode?" and so on, aren't manga related.
You know, like any other adaptation.
NEXT. CHAPTER. WHEN?
Need more deliciously drawn Blake.
>/a/ doesn't realise their tears only make people create more threads
Why are you morons helping yourselves get trolled? You realise they actually enjoy the butthurt posts right? You're not convincing them to leave you're convincing them to stay because your whining is entertaining them
>tfw /a/ gets buttblasted when they realize roosterteeth can make better anime than japan
I still cannot understand how people don't get it at this point.
Nothing RoosterTeeth has ever made can actually be called "good", except /possibly/, /POSSIBLY/, seasons 4-6 of RvB. Everything else they've ever made is crap, absolute crap, and I don't understand why anyone is a fan of them or watches anything they make.
Japan must have pretty shit taste if they're seriously adapting this.
The funny thing is that those retards seriously believe there are people from /co/ waiting all day here to post in a Rwby thread.
But that's the autistic boogeyman syndrome, nobody can save them.
Doesn't fucking matter if it's based off something not allowed here and it's unambiguous that the only people who give a shit about it are just shills from /co/. You cannot separate the show from the manga and the show isn't fucking allowed here. Period.
Probably they're literally the same faggot middle schoolers who are totally "gonna become mangaka and move to Japan when they're older, guys" so they idolize RWBY and want to push this manga as hard as they can not on /co/ but on /a/ to validate their chuuni fantasies.
Doesn't matter what idiots respond to a post with. The OP is still on-topic so long as discussion and speculation is related to the manga/potential anime alone.
I personally think that the RWBY fanbase is retarded, Monty Oum dying is both hilarious and tragic, the net product of RWBY's creation is deluded fans and a mediocre web-show, but that this thread should be on /a/.
>tfw the Japs are eating this shit up and it's on track to be the highest selling animated series this season
/a/utists on suicide watch. There is nowhere to hide now. The entire anime medium is just as bad as RWBY, you've just been blinded by the exotic glare of weeabooism. Suck it up boys
RWBY soundtrack got #1 on jap itunes iirc
and roosterteeth produces some fun content, like immersion or their skits, but those aren't /a/ relates so feel free to ignore this point
The origin source is fucking western crap. Who the fuck are you trying to fool here? Do you seriously believe these won't have people talking and posting screenshot of the fucking show?
Why can't the mods fucking understand this?
Who gives a shit, the fact is mods should be deleting these garbage threads outright and le ebin trolls are hiding behind their idiocy.
They'll just step up to bat for anything they can get away with that pisses off basically all of /a/ and this is absolutely what's been going on. Mods are seriously fucking incompetent if they do not recognize this,
I for one welcome our new RWBY overlords
At least they got Jaune right.
It's a Japanese manga by a Japanese author published in Japan. You lost m8, give it up. The mods are not going to delete legit threads about a manga because /a/ dislikes the series. This is Naruto all over again.
>Naruto is allowed
>this is not
Nice double standarts faggots
Is there seriously just the same people going through these threads, keeping them alive with their constant bitching?
OP doesn't even have to fucking post the whole thing.
I love ruby's new design as well as everyone elses but her new one makes me wet. I just hope the mangaka can make the story more coherent but if the mangaka continues like he did this chapter im gonna cut myself.
>Mods are not allowed to fuck with communities at their whim
They're supposed to enforce the rules of the board. Talking about a manga published in Japan by a Japanese author doesn't break any rules and unless you want to argue that anything unpopular should be banned you don't really have a leg to stand on
If it's a monthly release, doesn't that just make it an advertisement for the Japanese dub?
No idea how it even got licensed for Japan in the first place, RWBY is literally just a giant aggregation of recycled tropes and characters with no actual substance of its own. Like tarantino movies but with anime instead of 60s era b-movies
>What's wrong with tumblr?
>RWBY is literally just a giant aggregation of recycled tropes and characters with no actual substance of its own
You just described 90% of anime. It's not surprising it's popular in Japan, all anything needs to be popular in Japan is a diverse cast of waifus, and RWBY has that. If Japs actually had good taste anime would be dead
>You keep saying "hurr it's really Japanese now" when no one here falls for that bullshit.
Are you mentally challenged? Are you seriously legally retarded? Because the manga is written by Shiro Miwa.
There's a fucking general up right now on /co/
Why are two generals on two different boards fucking necessary.
Not being able to answer this question is basically admitting that it doesn't belong here.
This, someone has some fantasy that /a/ will actually accept this when it's just blurring the lines on something that wasn't allowed. That's still far too close to "not allowed" territory.
> I just hope the mangaka can make the story more coherent
Same here. Actually, I hope he can improve the story.
>I love ruby's new design as well as everyone elses but her new one makes me wet.
Nah, man, that's not even Ruby, even her body language is different. Which is strange, when you consider that the other girls' body language looks pretty
Yeah, but some SOL scenes are funny, the girls are waifu material, and some actions scene are pretty good. Let the author improve the story and it will be fine.
Nah, as the other anon said it's popular enough in Japan, so it got its own manga.
Anon, ignore them, or, better, hide their posts.
For the same reason that if Warhammer 40,000 got an anime or manga, it would be both /tg/ AND /a/-related.
Answered your question. Kindly remove your opinion from consideration.
Which is why I said new design even though the mangaka made her look way older than the show.
Also I'm thinking about how he might draw them doing lewd poses which will look good on ruby.
The source is still fundamentally Western. The IP is western. It never will -not- be.
Most importantly there is a sort of eminent domain of communities. Toonami works far better on /co/, so, it stays there. RWBY has already been on /co/ for years and wasn't allowed on /a/. You can't just do an about-face on something that has long been established already as a /co/ thing.
>but we're just talking about the manga
Bullshit. This entire franchise/fandom exists because of the show. The manga is a spinoff that barely even exists at all; that should not open up the door for the rest of the shit to come in here.
And /a/ doesn't want to talk about the cartoon because it's not made in Japan. Double standards.
It wouldn't be /a/ related if it was a thinly veiled tabletop discussion thread.
Do we have a Marvel general thread up right now? No. For that matter /co/ talked about a lot of the Marvel anime over there on their board, probably far more than was ever said about them here on /a/. (which typically was not much)
In this case we could easily wind up with a thinly-veiled RWBY general mostly about the show up 24/7, because that's -exactly- how its fans run on /co/. They clearly don't know when to stop and if mods are going to nanny them that'll only encourage them to set up shop for a topic clearly outlawed here.
>implying anyone here is /co/
>implying it isn't a handful of /co/ desperately defending these threads to begin with along with a few trolls who join in on their side just so they can bait with it 24/7
If /co/ doesn't force this shit into a 24/7 general to spite /a/ then trolls definitely will in their stead. This shit needs to be nipped in the bud.
Here's an idea, RWBY is allowed to be discussed for one day whenever scans for its manga are up. Every other day? No go. That way we don't wind up with the /co/ general here.
Not him, but it's a good question. What actually makes LNs any different? Moot explicitly stated they don't belong here.
If quality matters to /a/ now, why weren't LNs first to go, closely followed by waifufags? Why the double standard? Why is not clean this board of all the trash?
>BAWWW I DON'T LIKE THE SOURCE, STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS ADAPTATION OF IT BY A CREATOR RELATED TO THE BOARD'S TOPIC
This is what you sound like to people with common sense and an idea of the board and site's rules. Which is funny, because apparently the janitors are actually doing their jobs, too, when it comes to that topic.
>literally admiting you are ban evading
Isn't this like the usual policy? Chapter just came out, that's pretty much all there is to it, newfags just taking things out of proportion.
Don't tell me you're actually like this garbage
Said LNs are Japanese IPs. Big fucking difference. When it was found out that NGNL's author is half-Brazilian people half-joked about banning it here because it wasn't Japanese.
The whole point of contention here is that RWBY is a thing that has always been Western and clearly was not-allowed on /a/ for years, getting an exception just because there is this manga spinoff. You cannot have the fans in here without their bringing in the show; that's just ludicrous semantics thinking you can keep these things separate across boards.
We also generally only ever discuss the LNs that get anime adaptations. For pure discussion of the source LNs themselves those should go on /jp/ imo but I don't know, if mods are fine with it whatever.
I couldn't care less about RWBY, but I care about /a/ plenty. So why keep one trash here and be angry over other while the only difference is the latter tries too hard to be Japanese?
I did answer the question, are you retarded?
They won't because they're only here to shitpost. That's all they've ever been here for, no one actually cares about this shit.
Yeah, it came out yesterday. Which means that today, it should be deleted on-sight. That's what I mean by "one day". Forcefully boot them out so they can't set up shop in /a/ over a fundamentally not-/a/ topic.
Mods have no idea what they are doing most of the time.
>mfw even Inferno Cop and Ninja Slayer has better animations than this crap
>We also generally only ever discuss the LNs that get anime adaptations. For pure discussion of the source LNs themselves those should go on /jp/ imo but I don't know, if mods are fine with it whatever.
It's actually much closer to current situation that you say. All LN threads are here just because they once get few episodes nobody really cared about, but the threads stay regardless how unrelated to /a/ they are. They all devolve into pure circlejerk or source material discussion. And these both were part of reason moot split /jp/ off. They seriously have no argument to stay.
No, there shouldn't need to be a containment thread. I wouldn't even mind it being discussed if it were all /a/nons making one thread when released out of genuine interest, but when there's a huge horde of cross boarders and shitposters trying to make a general for the sake of circle jerking and pissing people off, it needs to go.
>it shoots the cartridge along with it
What the FUCK is this shit?
Its a single chapter of a monthly manga that was untranslated
It literally would have just went to "WHEN IS X SHOW CHARACTER GONNA SHOW UP, HOW WILL THEY DO Y SHOW CHARACTER, Z A BEST POST FANART". It literally serves better to just leave this shit to the general on /co/
>there are now neo-RWBY fans trying to distance themselves from the other shitlords on /co/
>Back in the day moot didn't order LNs into /jp/ and a lot of people just assumed they'd stay.
First thing he did was to send VNs there. But as long as you were discussing anime-related material he allowed threads to stay. Many VN/LN threads long outlived that stage and I don't remember him changing his policy especially for LNs.
>Nobody's going to seriously argue Spice and Wolf off of /a/.
Nobody also "discuss" S&W daily for three years.
>Same here. Actually, I hope he can improve the story.
Judging by the way he adapted the red trailer and bully arc, I don't think he's going to do shit to make this series better.
Just the thought of it make me wanna vomit
>Nah, as the other anon said it's popular enough in Japan, so it got its own manga.
And it's not that popular in Japan. It's got a decent following, but nothing major. Shirow was just a fan of the series and even helped make the fanbook, so UJ let him make it for the 20th anniversary.
>/a/ gets triggered over a manga thread that'd die after 30 posts if they didn't keep bumping it
These posts are always retarded.
Mod A makes a judgement call B at time C.
Mod X makes a judgement call Y at time Z.
Then someone posts a screencap of ABC and starts spouting "WHY ARE MODS CONTRADICTING THEMSELVES? WE HAD CLEAR RULES ABOUT IT".
They have a 2 seasons show to discuss. On /a/, they have a 15 pages chapter.
B-But all these mad replies will make them leave, you'll see!!
>I'll call them faggots and link them to /co/, that'll work!!
I'm honestly surprised how people can be confused about this shit's popularity, when there are tons of people who unironically like shit like Asterisk, Mahouka, and Index.
OP, please continue. All the waifufags at IRC are getting a teary right now. I'm loving this.
>he's actually defending this garbage on /a/
>he think weeaboo is an insult on /a/
Any random QUALITY thread offers you same kind of shit animation as RWBY. Sorry to burst your bubble, but you won't become Japanese by blindly following anything they shit out.
>he can't read
You haven't been here for long, have you?
>You can't get lower than DBZ
RoosterTeeth finds a way.
>does that mean you've watched it?
Clips of it to see what this trash was.
I am saging, I think you're the retard here. And both of those are still worse than RWBY.
>There are people in this thread right now, RIGHT NOW, who don't know about this
>mfw even inferno cop and ninja slayer has better animations than this trash
That's just as cherry picking as >>133690839
I didn't watch RWBY (it looks pretty bad), but if you want to criticize it, maybe you should link a video of an episode instead of a 10s webm.
>Any random QUALITY thread offers you same kind of shit animation as RWBY. Sorry to burst your bubble, but you won't become Japanese by blindly following anything they shit out.
I don't even understand what the fuck is this guy trying to say
>obvious fans of the show who clearly never use this board coming in here in ironically going "it-it's not any different from real anime"
Do they seriously tell that to themselves? What a fucking joke. It is also abundantly clear that you cannot have threads for "just the manga" because 99% of the people who care one iota about this shit are rabid fanboys who watch the show and cannot help bringing it into these threads and comparing it. The show is not allowed here. The manga is automatically tainted by the show. Nothing can be done about this but to just let them jeep the whole thing on /co/ where it had been for years anyway. We wouldn't complain, they wouldn't complain. Why do mods not take the fucking clear and obvious solution to this shitfest?
These threads will never be accepted here because that show and its fandom are both an utter joke and also not allowed here to begin with.
Greentexting won't save you anon. Before Gaia was replaced by other convenient scapegoats, /a/ called them weeaboos plenty and be sure nobody on /a/ wanted to be even remotely associated with that site.
>the people who love the show.
This gave me cancer
Thats what he get for making trash.
This whole thread is filled with undiluted autism. I hope everyone here is underage, because only kids should be taking the Internet seriously, let alone /a/.
>Luckily it won't happen.
>dub cast filled with popular seiyuu
>spread in Newtype by fucking Love Live illustrator
But that's true. Only kids and Tumblrinas think THE INTERNET IS A SERIOUS DEAL MOM THESE PEOPLE TRIGGERED ME I HAVE TO DOX THEM. Even not-functional people are self-conscious enough to not do this shit after their 18s.
>If I bump the threads and call them faggots, it'll go away!
You know it didn't work for Naruto, right?
What's the point of keeping these threads up? Are they designated shitposting threads?
No one on /a/ actually watches this shit to know. We just mock whatever those faggots from /co/ bring in here. They pretend like /a/ likes it when clearly the only dimension of care we have, is that we care that the mods are not removing this obvious /co/ shit on sight.
At least these reaction pics are funny.
Shitposting is better than angry shitposting. The first one can be enjoyable, the second one is just pure autism. Never go full autism.
Is that why the thread's still in page 1?
Sage worked so well, it killed all naruto threads, right? Not really, they're allowed now.
It's the unlimited self-moderation works
Did you rike it?
I didn't try to claim said otherwise, but it irks me to think there are people who willingly claim that shounen anime is actually any better that this shit. Both are pretty much aimed at same kind of people.
Looks straight out of a Final Fantasy fanfiction, especially the fedora.
Animation doesn't look that bad though. Giving an impression of speed is something lots of anime fail at.
>but it will all depend in if the series sell well on nipland.
Not really. They're doing all of this japanese crosspromotion because the series sells itself on being anime-like. Having an official manga lends legitimacy to their advertising. That's why they're paying to have this manga made. Their main interest is boosting popularity in the west by legitimizing the show to the weeb target audience.
You can expect animated OVA to be a forgone conclusion so long as the popularity over in America goes up as a result of the manga.
Well, what do you want ? Going on a crusade to determine a japanese manga is /co/ is more important to /a/ than watching anime.
>Because it's animated in MMD
Obviously. I don't watch much MMD videos so I don't have anything to compare it to. Still, it looks faster and more real than most anime. Hell, 2012 and 2015 JoJo were practically powerpoints.
Whatever helps you sleep at night.
>Because most shounen doesn't filled with cringe tryhard moments like this shit
Are you sure?
Shounen is a demographic so saying "Both are pretty much aimed at same kind of people." can't get any closer to truth. RWBY has all signs of battle shounen.
For every sakuga moment you can find a sloppy one. Especially in longer running series.
What is a toonami thread? In any case you can have threads about anime that it just happen to air in there.
Nobody is /co/ here, stop being in denial please.+
Doesn't LWA got a manga adaptation on the same magazine as RWBY?
I can't find any scan about it.
Generic harem are bad in a completely different way from tryhard and poorly animated shit, though. Unless you're referring to battle harem, which is of course different.
Also, you might want to work on that whole English thing.
I don't have the time for this and I thought you could add something to the discussion that was more interesting than "IT'S SO BAD I CUT MYSELF". Guess it was expecting too much from you.
>they are people defending the show on /a/
Why is this thread still up? The show have nothing to do with /a/.
>This shit gets its own manga
>Cory in the House doesn't
>I can easily see this getting a kickstarter like LWA
I can't. Even ignoring how bizarre it seems to confidently expect a one-off thing to repeat itself, the context is different. I assume your thinking is that the Western fanbase is there for the taking, but clearly the point of this manga and the dub is to take advantage of Japanese interest, and I don't really see that funding a Kickstarter for this.
The Japanese dub and manga has brought even more Western people to it than the nips. If a kickstarter was made, it would be funded easily. We just need WB Japan to get a studio.
The source is Western. If there is a Mickey Mouse manga made in the future (or is there one already) can we then talk about Disney on /a/ too? No. Mods are apparently confused because "hurr they look like anime chars close enough". No, not even remotely close.
Furthermore the fact hhat RWBY is both an incredibly shitty series in many ways and is basically a mockery/knockoff of anime is downright fucking offensive to /a/. The series is like blackface to us and the fans are literally 14 year olds from YouYube who don't even comprehend why the show they unironically love is so terrible. Just because they laid off some fucking hack in Japan to adapt it doesn't mean jack fucking squat. The original creator of RWBY is dead. Gone. Rotting in the ground or a pile of ashes or whatever. The fact that it is still running despite that is testament to its status as existing solely to milk more YouTube views and try to keep expanding everywhere to remain profitable, and its fans even more stupid for buying into this crap.
It's not even about me, it's about the quality of your posts. When you find something truly bad, you want to criticize it for good and totally destroy it to show how utterly shit it is. If you want to be autistic, at least be funny about it. That's just a friendly advice, do what you want with it.
One famous example is right in this thread >>133690923.
I also stated that you can visit any random QUALITY thread to see there is plenty of badly drawn scenes which is enough to disprove such claim.
>WB Japan to get a studio
So your realistic plan for this to get a manga involves a new anime studio being created in Japan by a Western company that then uses a Kickstarter funded by Western people to create a Western-targeted Japanese-language adaptation of a Western show? And you're banking on this why?
>he's watching this shit
True it was made in the west, but Oum did take all his inspiration from Manga and Anime.
He forced the entire staff to watch shows like TTGL and so on before they started the work on RWBY.
You can see this by the designs of basically everything.
Weapons are so MSLN and the airships have wings that are needed like in basically 97%% of all JMMORPGs.
>ITT: /a/ taking the obvious bait.
>"B-b-but if I spam the shit out of them and call them faggots, they will go away, right?
I wouldn't expect anything different from circlejerking waifufags.
/a/ at this point is even more cancerous than /co/ is.
Manga based on a Western source which is explicitly not allowed here.
Keep missing the point entirely and I will seek out your parents to refer them to CPS for child abuse, because they clearly fed you poison or dropped you off a building or something for you to be this brain-damaged to not get it.
