Haikyuu!! S3 announced:
More of the girls.
They've already fucked it all up with their boner for Oikawa.
Now they've robbed the finals of all its hype because people have to wait an entire summer just to get the championship. They'll probably fuck it up too by having it get less episodes than this shit game did.
Like, who the fuck planned season 2 and decided that they shouldn't show the tournament finals.
Having Nekoma lose as the opening of season 3 would have made more sense. The Shiratorizawa game is where all the fucking plot points of this season for Kageyama, Nishinoya, Hinata, and Tsukishima are resolved.
It's like taking the NCAA finals out of March Madness and having it in August months after the big tournament.
Really expect just a 13 episode season because that's all the material they'll have unless they want to get to the Nationals and have no games except maybe the first game. Or god forbid end a season on a training arc.
>S3 this year
Holy shit are you fucking kidding me
Because it's not shit, unlike everything else that's popular.
and the bulk of the people who buy the Blu Rays and rake in money it couldn't care less as long as there is slice of life scenes with cute boys dong cute things
This is what sport's anime come down to nowadays
People will bend over backwards yelling because it's great and it's liked by all kinds but the reality is it has one of the largest fujoshi fanbases. They buy the Blu Ray Discs and merchandise and pump out fan content.
A more apt allegory is that S2 just finished the playoffs and S3 will open at the start of the Super Bowl.
I expected a movie
A third season is better, but it seems like they're catching on the manga, and that can't be good. One of the reasons I like the show is having little to no filler.
It's a pretty good sports show. Yes you get a bunch of cute boys and fujos love that, but it's still good.
What could they conceivably skip over?
Training arc was based as fuck.
>Male fanservice : cast is all boys,one or two girl similar to free
>School shounen : characters have school tests,grades,etc. When you are a shitty writter you use school setting in your shounen manga
>Homo pandering for fujoshit
And none of those are reasons why this would be unpopular or make it a shit series.
Tough tittie, faggot, I'm here for the sport.
I still don't understand the problem with it. Your favorite anime has a lot of shitty fans, that has nothing to do with the quality of the show itself.
If anything, Haikyuu doesn't have any random super powers, it's just a simple show about volleyball. Plus it doesn't have all the stupid melodrama or fanservice other popular fujo shows have (ex: Free).
>slice of life scenes with cute boys dong cute things
If this was what made it sell, there would be more SoL of cute boys without the sports. Girls like seeing boys actually doing things, not sitting around, so sports and action series dominate.
Omg, please, stop with the sport themed manga/ anime Japan, we all know you suck at sports, there's no thinking involved when playing focused. You should know that better than anyone.
What fanservice are you referring to? The fact that the boys wear shorts and interact with each other?
You cannot have actually seen it if you're delusional enough to compare it to Monogatari. Even Free doesn't come anywhere close to the level of fanservice the average otakubait series does, it's just impossible to portray male characters in such a sexual way without it getting too nasty for fujos. Come back when Haikyuu has panty shots.
>suck at sports
>ranked 15th in the world at the Olympics by medal wins
Got a ways to go before then. Cats have to beat Snakes to even qualify, and Snakes play some dirty volley.
>Every manga sells on fanservice
No.Every manga has fanservice but that isn't their selling point
Haikyuu!! selling point are cute boys and fanservice
Free selling point are cute boys and fanservice
Monogatari selling point are cute girls and fanservice
You are being delusional if you think girls watch this for volleyball.Change males with females in this anime and no girl will watch this.The same goes for Monogatari and Free
I have seen both seasons. It was the biggest waste of my time.
And I actually thought I'd like it, because I used to swim. It was nothing but pointless, disgusting fanservice and moeblob characters. The entire cast are a bunch of generic little anime girls.
Naruto's selling points are cute boys and fanservice.
HxH's selling points are cute boys and fanservice.
Berserk's selling points are cute boys and fanservice.
There is not a manga in existence that doesn't sell from fanservice. If you changed Guts to a woman in Berserk, guys would still buy it because fanservice. No one's reading it for its shit plot, they're reading it to watch beefcake (or cheesecake) chop people and monsters up. You can throw accusations of a manga holding up only by fanservice all you want, but to deny that it's not every manga is simply you being a retard.
>Naruto's selling points are cute boys and fanservice.
>HxH's selling points are cute boys and fanservice.
>Berserk's selling points are cute boys and fanservice
No matter how popular a series is for it's quality, the people willing to actually spend money on it usually need to be a little more invested in the characters than most. That means being attracted to them.
I think those three particular series are so popular that it doesn't necessarily apply, but they all have big fujo fanbases and some level of homo pandering regardless.
>reading Naruto for the ninjutsu
>reading HxH for the story
>reading Berserk for the art
His anthropomorphism is a bit too extreme, even for Furodate.
Nope, still here for the sport. I really want to see Battle at the Garbage Dump happen.
Because this is legit good show. All the characters are good characters. Nicely done animation. Also, there is no such thing as power lever or edgy competitor.
I don't care if thread on /a/ is full of fujoshi, since i watch this series alone anyways. The important thing is I enjoy the story or not.
It's very different from blatantly Fujo pandering shows such as Homomatsu or free. Since, it's published in WSJ.
Why would anyone stay for anything but the sport? Haikyuu has less slice of life than fucking Slam Dunk, the manga that turned into nothing but basketball in the second half.
The only thing that isn't sports in Haikyuu is the merchandise.
Then again most people don't realize that Japan has a long tradition of strong volleyball teams and has one of the premiere international training camps.
This was pretty obviously going to happen, no? There's only 2 episodes left and 1.3 matches still to play, assuming the end to this match won't be identical to the last one.
t. anime-only fag
>Haikyuu!! selling point are cute boys and fanservice
>You are being delusional if you think girls watch this for volleyball
The fuck? Are you really believe that?
My senior from collage male volley ball team like this series. Hell, this series is looks normal outside /a/, unlike Free which still looks homo even by normalfag standard.
>this series is looks normal outside /a/, unlike Free which still looks homo even by normalfag standard.
Exactly. I'll never understand the hatred for Haikyuu for being a "fujo-only" series. Watch it before you dismiss it, you faggots.
>as there is slice of life scenes with cute boys dong cute things
I wish. It's just 100% volleyball with literally no SoL breaks in between, not even a little.
I don't understand haikyuu's popularity compared to other sports anime that are more balanced between downtime and sport.
>I wish. It's just 100% volleyball with literally no SoL breaks in between, not even a little.
What are you talking about? More than half of the first cour of this season was just training and SOL episodes.
I like it, but even I can't see what's so amazing about it other than the fact all the teams are portrayed sympathetic.
The characters aren't that great and they get kinda repetitive after awhile.
Sure, m8. Sure.
Fangirls have no trouble finding shitty art attractive.
The art has gotten so shit I'm beginning to think Furudate doesn't care anymore but still writing out of contractual obligation.
Training is still related to the sport. SoL means relaxing and doing stuff not related to volleyball. Haikyuu has none of that.
Not a problem if you like non-stop action, but after seeing the manga go from intense match to intense match with no breaks is kinda exhausting.
Holy fuck this is great news I thought it only had enough for two seasons but hell fucking yeah.
We need more sport shows anyways.
Looks like Nobunagun girl.
Other manager wife.
The somewhat poor pacing of this season means they have an awkward break now between seasons. I am happy that a third season isn't years away, but the transition could have been handled better. It's still one of the best sports shows and one of the better shows around in general.
Speaking of sports anime, has anyone seen the Yowamushi Pedal movie pop up anywhere? It released some weeks ago and was a huge hit in Japan. The blu-ray topped the sales charts, I think.
Still probably 10-15 episodes of one match.
I don't even think the manga will complete nationals or reach battle of garbage dump by the time s3 comes aroundso what is the point of rushing? Damn. Slow down.
Yeah, kenma looks pretty bad here
Not a fan of how Lev's eyebrows have magically gotten thicker either. It feels like furudate is trying to reach for a more unique style but it's not going so well
Nohebi match will be finished by the time S3 starts. They don't have to stretch the Shiratorizawa match and the anime can end with Nekoma winning and confirming their spot for the tournament.
The manga art has never been great, but the faces on recent chapters really bother me for some reason. It's like the foreheads have doubled in size and the faces got scrunched.
Boys volleyball isn't even that popular like basketball or baseball are. I just want to know what is the appeal of this is to non-sports fans, which seem to make up the majority.
>Implying I don't watch real life volleyball
But honestly, we get some off-court time in every episode.
Or do you consider Ennoshita "regret recollection" a part of the sports too?
>I just want to know what is the appeal of this is to non-sports fans
Athletic, charismatic boys.
I don't know, I like volleyball and think it's great sport.
But maybe the appeal is about interactions between players without actual physical contact?
That they are able to intimidate/influence their opponent without physical violence, like in basketball or football?
An energetic, yet still manly sounding voice.
Though, I'm not saying it's bad. I can see getting used to it.
>Voiced the trap in Gatchaman Crowds
I'm already liking this dude. Someone with that range and making actual use of it,
He just won a Best New Actor at the Seiyuu Awards, too. Guy's got crazy potential as long as he doesn't get stereotyped.
Carrot tops are still redheads.
It is orange, but it feels weird to call him an orange head.
Even though we all agree they paced this season to shit, and should've had shiratorizawa without having a break in between, it's still not a bad call.
Next season will probably focus on every team qualifying for nationals, another training arc, then hype up the actual nationals for next season.
Yes, since haikyuu isn't fantasy and people who look out of place like Lev or Kenma are either from another country or dye their hair.
I'm left to assume that Hinata is a halfie whose dad is a white Irish guy.
Still doesn't mean they couldn't have stretched the second set to two eps (ideally, half of one ep and half of the next, so still technically one through time) to trim out the one-too-many ep for Karasuno vs Seijoh, because we really didn't need Mad Dog's fucking lifestory demolishing the pacing for this match. A bit more time with Dateko and Seijoh wouldn't have hurt anything and it certainly wouldn't have left Dateko being the complete jobber team if they'd managed to pull off a one-set win over Seijoh.
You can be straight and appreciate some thighs. Happens at KFC all the time.
>ywn plow yachi in all her holes with your teammates
That's silly, you can't make a baby that way!
