First yuriphonium thread in 2016. More to come this year with the recap movie and season 2 coming soon.
>Pick this up expecting romantic yuri given all the posting
>There's none and they're actually platonic lovers
Great show, regardless.
Looking forward to all the drama with Nozomi and Mizore next season.
Natsuki is a goddess.
Eupho was probably the first time Kyoani adapted quality source material since Haruhi. There's an impending battle harem then some shoujoshit Chobits coming, but could they save the company from shit writing with season 2 and KNKv.3?
The first 4-5 episodes were pretty meh but the rest was solid.
Feels so good when the source material isn't shallow drivel.
Also much better than insomnia cure Hyouka, unless you're suffering from insomnia of course.
Maybe she would have gotten in if she lost weight.
No. In fact Kumiko will get pissed off by Reina obsessing over Taki.
Hopefully yes. Expect drama out the arse.
I stopped reading the first novel for a while early on in the season after I noticed KyoAni was doing everything better, so I have confidence they'll keep up the trend for the second season.
KyoAni does the best tights.
They cut Shoe scenes for friendship scenes, I'd say would be more accurate. Scenes with Shoe were replaced with scenes with Hazuki and Green. Most of the yuri shit was added or embellished to create a completely new story on its own.
Top tier waifu material.
Presumably to focus on Kumiko's and Reina's relationship.
Shuuichi's romance with Kumiko is a side affair in the overall scheme of things. The main focus of the novels is Kumiko's friendship with Reina.
Shuuichi only seals the deal in the side stories. Though he does have some choice moments in the novels.
>Why would they do that?
For the same reason as everything else in the show, and all of the other shows they changed a shitton about.
I don't know, anon.
And this is meant to prove what? That yurifags aren't delusional? If so, good job not doing that.
Are you doing this to prove that heteros can be delusional? If so, no shit. All sides have their crazies, it's just that yurifags tend to have the most crazies. As is proven by the OP of this thread.
Try finding me something like that today. That's right. You can't. On the other hand, you can find your regular dose of yuri delusions all the time.
I found you, a dumb faggot who got baited by OP, and undoubtedly takes every bait post seriously and uses them to reaffirm his notion of a yurifag conspiracy. Does that count as crazy?
Some threads are nice, but most, like this one, are created to bait and incite shitposting.
No one believes there's even a slightest chance for a yuri end anymore, people just make threads like this one either because they want to trigger "hetfags", or because they want to make more people hate yurifags so they act like obnoxious yurifags.
> and uses them to reaffirm his notion of a yurifag conspiracy
How? I'm just mocking yurifags. There is no conspiracy. They're just a dumb subgroup of people who refuse to stay inside their containment board. I'm just doing my part to keep them out by mocking their delusions whenever possible.
>Try finding me something like that today.
Are you saying that people like that, or even that Anon in that post, aren't still on this board? Does 6 months ago seem like that much of a long time for you?
>still with the del/u/sions
I haven't even watched this series but you can see kilometers away that is nothing but yuribait
>Are you saying that people like that, or even that Anon in that post, aren't still on this board
Well, if they're as prevalent as you seem to suggest, then why does that very EXACT same picture get posted again and again and again and again?
Every fucking time some delusional yurifags try to paint the heteros as crazy as they are, they use only that one image.
Do yurifags not have any other examples to use? Surely, if they are all over the place, the yurifags will have more than one "collage of crazy hetero posts" to use?
It's admittedly a bit unique given the fact that Anon decided to blog a bit, and actually explain why he hates yuri so much. It serves as a good study.
But really, the hetfag side has their own image they post over and over in that pixiv image by Mugino.
Whoever said there was a mass of people like you? I thought it was common knowledge that there's only a handful, at best, of autists like yourself who sperg massively over any trace of yuri. Unfortunately you guys are so rabid that people have started making threads like this one to bait you.
Remember when episode 8 aired, and Hibike threads were calm and relaxing, with no one shitting on the floor?
I'm pretty sure both of those are falselfagging.
>>135534469 is way too absurd to be taken seriously, and even if a loony like that existed, why would he open himself to public ridicule by admitting it? Not to mention that whole "yurifag Chad Thundercocks" line, it's obviously written by a yurifag having fun writing fanfiction of how he imagines the average hetfag is like.
And that Mugino image with Taki being hit and an angry rant doesn't really read like a Mugino post at all, pretty sure that whole thing was fabricated by some loony who really hates our old pal Mugino.
>why would he open himself to public ridicule by admitting it?
Because this is an anonymous imageboard and not reddit. What you say here doesn't stick with you for any of your future posts.
Ah, yes. Another example of a series of posts from the same time period as the picture at >>135534469.
Good job. You've totally shown me conclusive evidence of a mass conspiracy to oppress all yuris in the /a/ of January 1 2016!
Better call those lawyers at the ACL/u/, cause you're /u/ civil liberties are being trampled!
>What you say here doesn't stick with you for any of your future posts.
Yes, but if you're an angry hetfag who hates yurifags and wages internet wars against them you're not going to write something you know will give yurifags ammunition against "your side" for the next twenty years.
i did enjoy the part where reina dropped her entire bottle of overpriced tap water in shock
Spoilers came from novelanon so they were legit. It's just that he didn't explain when it will happen so the people got autistic about it, and it was the Hazuki-Kumiko conversation.
Wait, was that it?
I think I remember some guy trying to claim that Reina confesses her love for Taki to Kumiko during the mountain date and then pretending to get mad when Kyoani "skipped" it.
>No one believes there's even a slightest chance for a yuri end anymore
Speak for yourself, this shit is going full dyke. You can tell because Hotdogman wants to fuck Hazuki now
They didn't pair them up. It how it is, they are very close friends. And Yuuko isn't worst girl, someone as best as Natsuki would not be so close to a girl like Yuuko if she really was as bad as what 90% of /a/ thinks she is.
In short, a girl as best as Natsuki has best taste too.
>no real legs to stand on.
Why do people keep saying this? Nothing he does indicates any level of attraction toward her. He's nice the whole way through but that's all. The only moment in the episode that could be seen as Shoe1 showing affection toward Hazuki is when he reads the fortune slip from her, but that is much more "isn't that sweet" than "oh she likes me" as far as I'm concerned.
Furthermore, his most extreme reactions in the OVA are when Hazuki mentions Kumiko, whether directly or indirectly. I like Reina and Kumiko too, but I'm not completely sure if they're going to go for it after this episode. At the very least, Hazuki and Shoe seems extremely unlikely.
The OVA ends with Hazuki, who is now over Shuuichi and wants Shuuichi to end up with Kumiko, being happy that she saw that Kumiko and Shuuichi reconciled. This seems like a pretty strong hint that they're not going to cut Shuuichi-Kumiko romance from the anime and that we're supposed to consider their act of reconciliation as not just platonic.
Call me a delusional hetfag all you want, but after this OVA I'm 100% convinced Kumiko and Shuuichi will end up together in the anime. Maybe not in the broadcasted TV series, but if season two is two cour and has an OVA at the end, the OVA will definitely be about Kumiko and Shuuichi starting to date. Feel free to screencap this and make fun of me after the anime ends if it doesn't happen.
>"I wanted this to happen!"
>Yeah but we didn't do that
>"Fuck you! You're wrong!"
>"Don't 'okay' me. You guys are heteroeroonomomodicks!"
>Yeah sure, we're gonna go make a magic school battle harem for next winter now.
>Why do people keep saying this?
I dunno, Anon. I'm just one guy.
>He's nice the whole way through but that's all
Of course he's nice, but that doesn't matter. What matters isn't what he's doing, but what KyoAni's doing. And I'm not sure how you can watch the OVA with its heavy tension, awkwardness, Shoe blushing, and this scene, and say something like "especially after the OVA".
Admittedly, it still looks like they're going down the Kumiko route after the last scene, but it's hard to argue that KyoAni isn't sticking their toes into the Hazuki route as well.
>heavy sexual tension
He gets a little uncomfortable when Hazuki more or less directly mentions the shit that went down with them or when she mentions Kumiko. Outside that, he doesn't seem flustered in the slightest, especially compared to how he acts around Kumiko, in which he is visibly nervous at almost all times and seems almost physically uncomfortable.
>>heavy sexual tension
Are you twisting my words on purpose or was this more accidental?
Regardless, nigger I wasn't even talking about the "Kumiko's waiting for you" scene, which was nothing in comparison to the scene in the stairwell, or opening the mikuji.
>I heard you playing with Shuichi by the lake
>you have my support
>I'm just doing my part to keep them out by mocking their delusions whenever possible.
>waaaah people like what i don't like
Business as usual
Sorry, you're right, I misread your post, I apologize. That said, "heavy tension" is still stretching a bit. There's a bit but it's mostly one sided.
As far as the scenes, I already addressed the mikuji scene, and the stairwell scene is Shoe1 being completely calm, then a little awkward when they collectively realize the situation, then it's almost immediately back to completely calm, particularly on Shoe's end. I see how you could see Shoe's reaction to Hazuki's outburst as somewhat romantically interested, but I don't think that's supported by the rest of the episode.
Took me way longer than it should
What? It's just Shuuichi and Hazuki being awkward because he rejected her and she still holds feelings for him.
She accepts this and decides to focus her energy on supporting Shuuichi getting together with Kumiko. Shuuichi is surprised and delighted by her gesture to go after Kumiko and do well at the competition at the expense of her own feelings.
I liked this series, but christ you c/u/cks are insufferable
Kumiko and Reina might as well be lovers at this point. The pairing is famous, has plenty of fan-art and official art and not to mention has a lot of cute scenes in the anime compared to the rival almost none-existent ship.
KyoAni has typically gone all out in its original content in the second season of its shows. So who knows what can happen in the second season of Hibike.
However, given so much original content was already added to the first season, I wonder if this time they'll do it in reverse and do and do things closer to the source, and nothing as crazy as the first season will ever happen. Also, from even the little bit I've read of the second novel I already get the feeling that it's better than the first one, so that's always important to factor in.
>Why did they announce the movie and the second season then?
>implying KyoAni does what they do because they want the money
You seem to be under the impression that KyoAni is like any other anime studio. Sure they're a business and getting proper funding for the things they do is important too, but I can almost guarantee you that both of those things were planned from the start. Doing recap movies has been common procedure for them for some time now, in fact. Have you not noticed this?
While my friends were getting high and chasing girls down parkway lines
I was losing my mind because the love, the love, the love, the love, the love
That I gave wasted on a nice face
In a blaze of fear I put a helmet on a helmet
Counting seconds through the night and got carried away
So now I'm standing on the overpass screaming at the cars,
"Hey, I wanna get better!"
the whole Mikuji scene is completely mistranslated so you guys really shouldn't be saying anything about it. It doesn't say "we're all behind you", it's saying, "I'm supporting you 100%, go get her!". It's the same line Hazuki says to Shuuichi in the Festival Triangle episode and the same line she says to Kumiko earlier in the episode.
Which Euphonium would be best as...
- your pet?
- neighbor's pet?
- store pet?
- Youtube/Vine pet?
Yeah, that makes much more sense given how he then musters the courage to go talk to Kumiko immediately after.
I really don't know if they can make Kumiko x Shoe work in this show after S1, but it seems like they may try.
But that's the wrong girl, anon.
You can, but you don't have to. Dresses and camisoles like that often have bra-like material around the chest area to avoid any awkward nipple action. Strapless bras and pasties are also always an option.
