We're on suicide watch now.
Also accidentally posted one page when I meant to post the full stitch
wienerman-tested on tumblr draws some out-of-place karabita but the matsu antics are perfect
Call it denial, but there's no way they're ending the show after how well it's doing. I think this is just the end of the first season.
But if it continues and it drops that glorious 2nd OP, I will be sad.
If they went on to do a 2nd season and didn't put a new opening in there it would be extremely lazy.
Hell no.I know what would be funnier but if I saw Kara in any form irl I'd protect him at all costs.
Not only lazy, but disappointing. Why would you not want a new OP? Both of the old ones were great, so to have the chance of another good one would be worth it. Not like you can never see the others again.
I hope they don't do that shit that Gintama always does where they act like the series is ending and then it actually isn't. I always knew it wasn't ending, but the amount of people who bitched about it ending while never learning were so annoying.
Anyone still have that link to that anon made re-sub for virgin hero? I can't seem to find it.
More like you never watched a single Shaft show, mate.
>I haven't seen an anime go through OPs so fast though.
>two cours, two OPs
Do you even watch anime?
It's kind of an asshole move after a while too. And if it really does end at some point, it'll be like the boy who cried wolf.
That's pretty cool. I went through a long period of not being into many new anime at the time, so I haven't seen a lot of the "big" ones.
Anyone ordered any merch? None of them have really grabbed my attention aside from the sitting figures, the rubber charms, and pic related
the on-model daki art is also amazing but I could never
I fell for the dakimakura.
I regret nothing.
I got the 12 pack PUTITTO set. I'm not a huge buyfag, but I thought these were pretty cute.
Mostly charms and rubber straps, also one of the little ass sheets.
When it comes to figures I will just wait for the nendos.
I couldn't pre order the fucking hoodie again. I want to kill myself.
I totally understand wanting The Official Thing but in this case you can just get a normal hoodie and use fabric paint/transter/sewing
I got a plain blue one myself, but nothing except the official ones have just the right shade.
>cour was just shorter than I expected
Anyone going to buy the suit or Ichi's sweatpants?
It's pretty weird Ichi's name is on the back of them but I guess they had to distinguish them somehow from regular sweatpants for merchandise purposes.
Look at this.
And when I say that there are literal clueless newshit tumblrinas lurking these threads, people get pissed at me.
- Rubber strap
- Those six little mini-nendoish figurines, version with all Matsus
- Grey hoodie (I managed to get just in time yesterday. 10 minutes later they were already sold out.)
I plan on buying nendos later. I'm not too hooked up about the figmas.When is the next sculpture showcase festival? I wish we already got some nendoroid previews.
>people reviewing anime,
this is worst than the fantheories that try so hard to put a plot or a deep backhistory in this series.
>two acrylic pins
>pair of socks
>two clear files
>about eight key chains/straps
>first two BDs
>three rolls of washi tape
There's a lot more that I'd like but I've to keep my funds in check. It sucks that I can't pre-order more and some of the sold out or event only shit I want is already being sold on Y Auctions for three or four times the original price. Will end up hunting down a lot of stuff I can't get now eventually. For now I also plan on buying three nendos, the otomeshit VN, the rest of the BDs, and a hoodie.
He has a point. Tumblrinas watch anime on streaming services, so they know that there is usually one opening per one cour. Smells more like /v/, /co/ or /tv/ to me.
>Oso and Totoko matching.
This has to be my favorite merch yet and will porbably kill my wallet.
I know I'm the only one who likes the suits but I will kill for the hoodies version too
also just buying my favorite matsu
I want Oso's grey longsleeve. I don't really wear hoodies, but that would be perfect.
No, it's exactly crossboarders that are not familiar with the concepts that belong to anime. At least a tumblrina has watched a season or two to know that openings change but a crossboarder will just compare their experience to fucking sailor moon or dragon ball or whatever long running shit they have only watched
What's taking them on goddess Choro though.
But would they play 'Karamatsu is dead for good' straight...
I wear hoodies all the time and I want to tweak one of my own, but seeing as how buying one would also be hepling the series I'm now considering it.
I'm hoping "Letter" or the final ep will be one.
Your newfaggotry is really showing. Time to stop posting, senpai.
There was the earlier episode where he got abducted. He was never meant to be a main character anyway, his seiyuu more or less said as much. He gets paid the same despite not having as many lines.
Someone in the previous thread mentioned drug weeds and how it was a specific demographic that could get their hands on them beside real criminals. Specifically artsy hipsters. But wouldn't that be the creators of the show? Not because Osomatsu-san is particularly weird or anything but if anyone it would be those types.
I think the uploader deleted it didn't they?
Drugs are usually shit for writers and visual artists, all you come up with is garbage that you think is incredible at the time. People don't realize this unless they're told, or they've tried to come up with ideas for content white inebriated themselves.
That's why I said
>Not because Osomatsu-san is particularly weird or anything
It's not giving enough credit to the creator's creativity. Either way, what I meant was wouldn't "artsy hipsters" refer to the part of the manga and anime industry that isn't complete otaku.
weinerman-tested is probably my favorite matsu comic artist, she has her characterizations and sense of humor most on point with the series
How was Karamatsu able to afford contact lenses anyways?
I've been told that drugs act differently from person to person.
Too bad I'm more and more convinced it's a lie, smoking usually makes me kinda inactive and dizzy, sometimes sad and other times just lazy.
I quit long time ago, but so far I can see all my friends not being so different with weed...
Okay. I had the Kaiji composer and a different mangaka in mind but you are right even in my country it's not the art people but the musicians who smoke.
I see. Thanks. I figure speed or that ADHD drug would be more of an artist's drug because of the workload and deadlines or what have you but I don't know about it anyways.
I feel you anon, hopefully japan will deliver soon.
I personally think shit translations and ugly typesetting is an insult to the mangaka, and honestly, some mangas have been ruined by their horrible translation compared to the original(like the newest manga by Fujiwara Cocoa before she died).
But as far as I know, some anons are doing the manga translation now(?). Much thanks to them.
Gotcha. I'm having no luck finding anywhere that sells the rubber charms individually though.
They wouldn't even have the money for it anyway. Drugs are one thing but they'd probably spend it on snacks or clothes.
I did even though the typesetting is crap. You end up putting pressure on the bolded words when you read and it sounds ridiculous in your head.
>she has her characterizations and sense of humor most on point with the series
did you even read
don't be so hard on yourself just because you have shit taste
There were no bolded words in the original, so that typesetting is just stupid.
I dislike the art, and the characterizations and humor seem of to me, I'm not sure how that seems on point to you.
Who the hell fold socks like that? Don't you curled them up like pic related?
aw, they always make me laugh
could this mean the real shit taste was me all along? ;_;
Reminder that off-model perfect boyfriend Matsus are fine as long as it's the right kind of off-model perfect boyfriend.
They're hilarious and probably the closest we'll get to the humour from a western artist
even though they remind me of EE&E. /a/'s just snobby.
Better but not good enough. Needs more squish.
>I'm sick of your ikemen forms.
Girl of the season confirmed.
>secretly an F6fag
Not even being a snob, I watch just as much western stuff as I do anime, and I just don't find those comics funny. The characters/humor seem too Americanized to actually be the brothers as far as being in characters.
I get that it's hypocritical humour but I was disappointed in her. F6 beyond ep1 is just cancer
Imagine how glorious the Mad Max parody would've been if everyone was on-model and there was an actual battle. I spent the whole skit waiting for it to be over.
How so? Totty's still the unambiguous "cutie fairy" archetype, Oso's still the perfect reliable older brother, Juice is still somewhere in the uncanny valley, and Ichi's been given F6 Kara's badboy fanservice. Either F6 is using Soma and crew as civilian disguises or the two groups fused.
F6 Ichimatsu is different enough from normal that I actually need to pay attention to notice which he is. I like the drawling asshole normal one more though.
Related, is it known what M is regarding endings, opposed to F(6)? Was it matsu?
>Who the hell fold socks like that
The art isn't bad but it's still bland and boring.
Pic related makes best off-model Matsus.
Pretty much. It can also serve as an "Male" and "Female" pun, with the "Male" part being the more masculine Matsus, and the "Female" part being the more yumejoshi-oriented F6 idols.
I don't mind when F6 are handled in a way that's sharp and genuinely amusing like the first and racing episodes. But I agree, the Max Max skit went on for far too long and I didn't think that the Christmas skit involving them was that funny either. As much as I love the show it sometimes doesn't know when to leave a joke go and F6 probably epitomizes that.
>you will never squish Karamatsu lovingly
Agreed. That '90s shoujo style is perfect.
At least you're being reasonable, anon. It's cool. Interestingly the artist is from Dubai but you'd have to know a lot of Japanese culture if you really want to capture that feeling.
They're just not as cute like this either. Either have them on-model or a little taller and chunkier like pic related. The art you picked makes them look too fragile.
Are you talking about the song or in general? Either way Ichi is still a charismatic centipede. What about Juicy? How the hell did they justify that?
What? Oso isn't perfect or reliable at all.
When did the cat maid shit start? It's been all over pixiv and twitter for the past week.
Agreed, but I crackship Oso x Panty and Ichi x Stocking too
Keep your retarded drug culture away from my anime.
The song in particular was more difficult than usual as to me he sounds a bit like Kara. F6 Juicy is so bizarre, it's Ono doing his most charming voice possible, real dissonance.
I like them together but I also like Oso with everyone and Totoko with everyone.
No incest = less art to enjoy, your loss.
Oso suits Totoko best, though.
>too aggressive for Kara
>too rude for Choro
>too normie for Ichi
>too demanding for Jyushi
>too blunt for Totty
I feel like the others still crush on her a little bit out of nostalgia, but only Oso would be able to tango with her
>too aggressive for Kara
He needs to be bullied.
>rude for Choro
He'd love it.
>normie for Ichi
Normalmatsu is a huge normie, though.
>demanding for Jyushi
>too blunt for Totty
Okay maybe you have a point.
In general I do agree that Oso aside they're crushing on her out of nostalgia, however. It's fitting considering their position; they haven't moved on in life, they're still doing the same shit so it makes sense that they're holding onto a childhood crush. Maybe they're content knowing that it will go nowhere.
Are you kidding? Ichi would be 100 times better if he wore socks fuck feet.
>Maybe they're content knowing that it will go nowhere.
I think that's exactly it. None of them have really bothered with her, not even the ones you'd call "forward." Jyushhi went for Homura right away, as well.
Will she ever be relevant?
When she makes her grand return as Totoko's waifu.
Shame I'm not into that. To each their own.
Sub file only:
Subs with video:
It's the same version that's also on Nyaa.
Have you ever tried it? It's really comfy for lazy days when you're not doing anything that requires tough or formal footwear but it's too chilly for bare feet. I never understood this socks with sandals fashion sin meme.
They could've asked their mother to fill the kerosene but didn't because they are not completely hopeless after all.
I don't care for it but I understand why people like it.
I don't ship it. Kara's probably the nicest matsu towards him and they've had a ot of scenes together. Plus in Flower Fairy when Chibita said he was "always alone" it cut to Kara watching him sadly.
But I can't take it seriously bcause Chibita will always look like an angry baby to me. I couldn't even imagine him with the fairy.
Anon, you're what's wrong with the world. Go wear some shitting crocs, or uggs if you feel sassy.
non non Kara filled it up the days before
There are really people on this thread who go to tumblr for art and come back here to post on these threads? Why the fuck would you do that when there is pixiv and twitter around? What the hell are you doing in /a/ all of places? Fucking first post here was a shitty tumblr comic.
Nips are so cute.
I wonder how would "localized" names of Matsus be in other languages.
Any foreigner anons?
You'll can't have a decent thread even if it saved your lifes.
>then bitching about tumblr
>then bitching about xfags
>it ends with bitching about bitching
The full cicle. It's always the same.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
Who is the fairest brother?
It is Karamatsu.
In the virgin hero episode when they invite the brothers or episode 9A is how he truly sounds. No chuuni shit or anything.
NakaYuu has a neat range, I'm glad he's never typecasted.
Isn't everything he says a poem?
hey anons, do some of you have the full version or the originals of the video provided here?
the first and third ones seems really cool!
also youtube is suggesting me all kinds of vocaloid inspired video after checking osomatsu-san on youtube
nah, the evil one would of course be
>Literally circlejerking a fucking tumblr artist
"It's only a scan link."
"It's only translation."
My fucking sides, it's been one month or so and there you have it. Last episode soon, will you guys stop with this shitty general now or not?
It's literally shitposting and /cm/ing without any other purpose, excuse is "u guys are doing the same thing so fook off and let us circlejerk"
Mods don't give a fuck anymore, so we self-moderation now.
Cool, good to know I'm not alone here
The official Korean dub for 80s -kun:
-san fans mostly use Korean spellings of the original names, but sometimes these pop up.
Oh shit, I didn't even notice that they were glasses, I thought it was a strip of protective plastic or something. That's so non-committal, Christ. Go full opaque glasses or no glasses.
The one time I've gotten banned these past months was for reporting someone else.
I do wonder: how ill the fanbase react once the season is over?
Sure, a season 2 is almost guaranteed, and there's merch coming out everyday, but will it lose popularity due to no new episodes or do you think it will still monopolize Japan in terms of sales and popularity polls even with no new episodes before an year or so?
Are the fans really that patient? Or is this Osomatsu-mania in Japan just a huge FOTM?
I've been here for like three years and never once reported anybody. I just ignore shitposts.
I'm sure it won't be quite as active, but can't imagine it dwindling by a very large degree in just a year.
Yes, but it isn't working.
Now that I think about it, I've never seen any mod come into these threads and wipe everything.
I was also banned last month for telling /u/ to fuck off.
At least we weren't banned for 50 years, like that guy.
They do as long a lot of people report the same post.
You know that ignoring doesn't solve the problem, right? You can hide every post you want, but it's all placebo. The shit is still there.
Your tumblr self righteousness is showing.Who care if people post fanart? Visit any other thread on /a/, it's much worse than in this thread and no one tells anyone to go to fuck of to /c/.Enjoy the show and move along.
Todomatsu's name could literally mean hope and the last name would be a common Finnish one that means pine+the diminutive -nen. All their names would be kind of oldish and rare these days to convey the eccentricity of their Japanese counter parts.
Gintama didn't reach Osomatsu's huge popularity though. One thing is if Free ends, another matter is if Doraemon ends. But yeah, i'm sure it wont just disappear.
A year with almost no content (aside from a monthly CD) is quite a bit of time though. It's all a matter of Osomatsu being either a FOTM or good enough to hold up by itself for an year.
I'm quite sure it'll be the latter: all the episodes are extremely rewatchable, and there's lots of advetising and merchandising going on to keep the boat afloat.
>Dekapan - Gallumbos
>Iyami - Koneho
>Totoko - Tetoko Metoko
Cat and fish guy?
I reported a rank. The thread was going so well that I got irrationally pissy and reported it when someone posted one. If there is one good thing about the stawpolls it's that in-thread ranking is done and over.
I doubt it'll lose much popularity. There's still the drama CDs, manga, novel, and games coming out so we aren't just left with miscellaneous merch announcements. There's still official stuff that isn't the anime to look forward to.
Hopefully more non-anime official stuff gets announced, and by the time we're all out of those we'll be close to or starting the second season.
3/10, you made me post this:
Most of the thread is just shitty fanart and no one is sperging that posters should fek off to /c/ or other board. Also, samefag. Please contain your autism.
Same, predicting an autumn release. The show doesn't seem to have a long production lag, possibly a four month turnaround going by seiyuu comments?
Aside from the terrible contacts Kara does an okay job at being cool. But I wonder what goes on in that head of his - if he actually thinks those cool things are cool or if they're just copied from the men's magazines he reads.
It's similar to Jyushi's situation. We don't know where it begins and where it ends.
Kara knows what he is doing, buddy.
You can't be this clueless.
Not that guy, but 30k sales is way less than 100k+ sales in 6 months or so, especially given the time Gintama had to set up and the fact it had more episode and manga material.
Gintama is widely known, but it didn't become a frenzy like Osomatsu did in Japan, and definetly not as fast.
I now wonder: how is Osomatsu's popularity outside of Japan? (where it's a fucking mania)
Is it as popular as, say, One-punch man or is it more niche?
I'd be a terrible father (since i'd probably spoil them or not let them take their responsabilities), but i'd give my sons everything to make their life as good, hapy and comfortable as possible.
I want to give him all of the love in the world.
Your words betray your image choice, anon. Open your heart.
I never even noticed until you pointed it out. My laptop makes everything really fucking pale.
follow Kara on instagram
I'm endlessly impressed by the "haha" even if it's simple.
>It's japanese as fuck, watching anime made you used to it
It's not just for the purpose of opposing you but I doubt that. Yeah I've watched anime since always but same goes for western shows. Sure they have the mannerisms of Japanese people that can get strange for people who doesn't know what it means but they also have many things that do translate into other parts of the world's humour. A lot of Japanese humour is verbal and there are shows where you need knowledge on japanese ways to get the jokes. Some will even say JP humour can get childish right? But -San has many elements that it does well. And good quality is just good quality. Even the slapstick, while not for everyone, everyone can appreciate that when it's well timed as it is in Osomatsu-san. The verbal comedy refer to the situation and not something else and the voices and expressions are great. It's not that childish either because it's grown men so the humour can be more risky than usual. It's not like western shows are all According to Jim or Two and a half men. There are many shows in the same range as Osomatsu-san that's been mentioned in threads before as well.
I meant his Engrish appealing to people's vanity. "lelel look at this VA speaking english isn't it hilariously entertaining"-vise. It's not for nothing that there are thousands of videos of engrish.
Replied to the wrong person at the top, my bad.
Can you tell me what you dislike about him without using the phrase "lolsorandumb XD"
Yeah that makes more sense.
I had no idea these guys were so small. I thought they were nendoroid-sized.
People who hate any particular matsu are pretty terrible to begin with. I get not particularly liking their dynamic but outright hating them. There's a lot of Choro bashing, most of it is just a meme, but people who hate Jyushimatsu seem to have a very real extreme hatred for him that sort of confuses me.
You keep saying choro bashing is a meme but is it really?
He's amusing in his shittiness, so perhaps at first you can be frustrated by him. But not to a level of actual hate
Totty is God. He is not my favorite but he is the best.
Does anyone know the artist who made this? I want the other matsus
It's always the case vs F6. But the mixing of the track makes all versions feel like they're talking to the listener instead of Totoko and it's just weird. I guess it's supposed to be appealing but it misses the mark with me.
>feel like they're talking to the listener
That's definitely what they were going for.
They absolutely knew what they were doing. Sometimes it hits the mark and sometimes it's a litle creepy.
Just give me the M versions of Kara, Oso, and maybe Ichi
I'm with you all the way on those choices.
Initially yes, but I don't think they predicted it would get to the massive level it is because of it.
