Pretty good first episode. Out of all the show's this season so far this has the most potential going forward.
>not using google images
>being this much of a sperg
I want to fuck Sakuma but his "muh glorius japanese pride" gets on my nerves.
ANON, ARE YOU WEARING SHOES IN THIS THREAD
Doujins of faceless, american spies raping him when?
>all those stills
Especially considering nothing really happened on this episode, everything was exposition.
Maybe you faggot. I'm a cute 12-years old girl.
Yes, it's just you. There was nothing deep about this, and it wasn't even trying. When they were playing poker, and you saw one of them reading behind his shoulder, you could immediately tell they were card peeking. Not subtle in the slightest.
Yeah I thought it was great honestly, I'd even watch a show about the 8 monsters, Like can anyone even stand the MC.
>Spies are cowards.
>what would you do if you was a spy?
>kill or commit suicide!
We barely know anything about them I hope we do get to know more.
>Not subtle in the slightest
I guess this was the problem, it just looks stylish and all with the cool dudes in suits doing badass stuff and deceiving each other but i think it lacks a lot in substance.
not even same anon but tone it down america
prostituting himself in exchange for food in a Soviet labour camp would be much better
What's the point of risking a draw if chances are you can get a joker? I wouldn't draw in the first place, simple not participate. That's why I'm NEET, because that way you never risk drawing a Joker.
I like how they try to play the gaijin with a decent english but you just know it's a 100% japanese seiyuu with the
>You are burekin in to mah hous
I wonder why won't they use real gaijins for those characters
As much as I hate fujoshis and consider it to be nothing of the sort. They're going to have to be the ones to buy this for this to be successful.
Don't see any weeb fans in Japan picking this up
>You're disgusting if you aren't willing to die for your country.
Except there is nothing like that, in reality you must be willing to die for the interests of the guy running your country instead. I hope you are glad to die for Bernie or Hillary's sake.
I used to think like that, but even if I try to go with the tolerance flag I wouldn't call the pigs under Sharia law in middle east, the dirty niggers who steal shit, the spics cartels, the corrupt corporate CEOs or the sub-humans who shit in designated streets in India "my people".
All right everyone, repeat after me!
>As much as I hate fujoshis and consider it to be nothing of the sort. They're going to have to be the ones to buy this for this to be successful.
How fucking desperate are you?
You should clamor and pour money on a female cast version of Joker Game or better yet any female led shows on genres they rarely take
This whole females = moe/harem shit needs to die
Why is there so much shitposting in this thread.
I liked Subete Ga F ni naru.
It was moe
Getting Zankyou no Terror vibes from this. Watch as it goes full retard in a couple episodes.
Rakugo had double length episode to introduce us three (or four depending how you count) characters. It had all the time in the world to set up the characters, story and everything else.
This on the other hand is mostly exposition and training montage with majority of the cast left completely undefined yet.
>People there tend to believe that USA is the center of the world
Thats because our maps are distorted so that the US actually IS. If you asked an average American to find North America on a globe, they very likely wouldn't be able to. Nationalism at its finest.
>If you asked an average American to find North America on a globe, they very likely wouldn't be able to
What the actual fuck are you talking about? Every American would be able to.
What kind of stupid logic is that? Unless you're a poor as fuck ooga chaka African anyone over the age of 5 can point their country in the world map, especially if they are average citizens.
>implying fujoshi care about canon lusting
>implying the series most popular with fujo aren't about straight men
>implying that fujo's even care about gay pandering shit
The sad fact of the matter is, fujoshi love to take something not gay and make it gay. Most yaoi or shonen ai series are flops whereas stuff like Kurko no Basuke, Shingeki no Kyojin and DRRR!! have a good portion of their popularity fueled by fujo bucks.
Ironic shitposting is still shitposting. Stop it.
>I don't like it, so it's shitposting
Fuck off. It got stupid as soon as they weren't killing anyone and just kept getting worse and harder to take seriously with the riddles and Five's bullshit and the evil government conspiracy.
Then people should put more attention to the content of the post instead of disregard them because they didn't like the filename of the image. It's completely retarded.
I use 4chan X and instead of saving tons of images, it's easier for me to quickly google something I wanted to post and use the "paste the pic's url" feature thingie. Fuck off.
It seems you haven't gotten the news. This is literally a site owned by a Japanese person. You can go over to Google+ where moot is working now if you want your beloved "american" site, faggot.
Hey man there's a pretty decent amount of hetero Haikyuu doujins out there!
Yachi-san is cute. CUTE!
>People think these are ugly
Thanks for entirely missing the point, fucking idiot. This is why you should diminish posts and not because you are a sperg who doesn't like the filename.
Deal with it nigger.
What are the chances of MC-kun getting more and more cynical about his nation and government? 0% I assume, right?
People think this is sameface?
Do you guys have prosopagnosia or what?
The dudes are pretty hot, but I don't see it catching up with fujos without some actual pairing.
Maybe Sakuma/Miyoshi judging by the prime episode.
How the fuck are these clearly japanese looking individuals supposed to assimilate and be invisible in western countries in the 30s and 40s?
Do they think nobody will notice the obvious and only nip walking down the street in the middle of Berlin/London/Washington?
Same faces in this army is pretty reasonable, though. Also, it's very realistic.
Migration happened back then too.
I just wasn't nearly as common
pic related was a different guy 1908
I was expecting that agency to be training new Kuzunohas since some characters kinda look like Raidou
Well, you can always hope to go there in the future.
I lived one year in China, faggot
By renting a western-style house in the suburbs, eating their hamburgers out of their hands without chopsticks, praying before the constitution ever morning and night, and living as an americaphile.
Been to both countries and visited chink and jap countryside, so just because your dumbass landed in Shanghai or some other major city, you don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
>if you don't like my samefaced ugly show that means you must like generic pretty boys!
Damage control at its finest.
It's clearly a red herring why is everyone so retarted
>everyone looks the same
>bland, flat art
gotta admit, I never expected it to be this good.
So the gov put a watchdog into a spy training program to check that they're doing stuff right, which they end up doing cus they get 8 graduates. But now for no fucking reason what so ever, one of the spies decides to pull some random ass stunt on the watchdog. Like he isn't even hellbent on getting this spy program shut down, at most he was like "wow these guys are pretty freaky".
Like I expected the spies to completely read the american spy like a book and totally wreck him. But instead they decided to go all friendly fire, for the lulz.
>Great character designs
>Interesting plot where they follow spies
>Serious stakes where death via suicide might be an option
Better than 90% of the trash being shown so far this season.
Is this Baccano S2?
The government is trying to get shit on the D Agency.
The MC is kinda caught in the crossfire because if he takes responsibility by killing himself the D Agency gets out without any problem.
Not >>139661936 but I've been to China on month long photography trip where I photographed hundreds of them + drew at least a hundred of them and they're actually pretty different depending on where you are. I mean the country is huge.
Not sure on Japan though, i've never been there.
>f 90% of the show is stills and panning over stills
Why does this even matter? It's a slow builder, and all about the atmosphere. I think it did a pretty good job with that. They don't lead eventful, fast-past colourful lives. Even when they go out for the night, it's probably under insincere enjoyment, so no point showing that.
You are a spy, be a good one and misinfo your opponent, give some low tier but real state secrets in the beginning and feed them lies afterward while trying to get away or just play the game longer.
You're dumb, nigga.
The boss of the watchdog wanted to get rid of the super special spies for some reason, so he set them up a trap and told the naive guy that it was an official mission. The old guy in charge of the spies saw through it and at first he told the guy to fuck off because it was retarded, but when watchdog started bitching it was an official mission he basically said "fuck it" and send them to it.
Then the cheeky spy cunts who also saw through the ruse and manipulated the mission so watchdog would be forced to get the shit part of it, maybe to try teaching him a lesson, by orders of their boss or just to save their asses.
Panning and stills are lazy as fuck and ugly.
IG can do better.
My only guesses are that either he meant it was excessive to immediately jump to suicide as a solution and/or that it would actually make the problem worse because if you killed yourself during peacetime after you were already suspected of being a spy it would look really bad. Like it might be better to kill yourself than be captured but it shouldn't be Plan A.
Its obvs in the ep that MC-watchdog-kun finally realized that he was being played by the gov't. They specifically told him to put them on a shit case so that they can shut D-agnecy down. The spy-kuns didn't take the bait and turned the shit around on MC-kun.
Really doubt that's how its going to go down ultimately. I'm sure the spies are trying to push the gov't to intervene to save MC's ass.
Not him, but I actually think low-motion stuff gets too much shit on /a/. It can be very good atmospherically when done right.
inb4 "it's called animation for a reason, pleblord"
This is the dumbest plot I've ever seen. Why would the military be against spies gathering intel on the enemy that could save their lives and win the war?
I don't get japs at all.
Goes to show you how terrible the spring line up is. What else is there to watch? Boku no Hero? Hundred? Mediocrity across the board.
This is in my top 3 already so far this season.
>I don't get japs at all.
Their military was a fucking mess anon, the navy attacked pearl harbour without telling the army about it because they though the Army's successes in China were stealing the spotlight.
Studio staff, please break him soon.
Like tears in the rain.
That's the whole point of this show.
That's because black hair is the only color that looks good on men. Blonde is faggy as fuck and >ginger. Any other color makes you look like you're a faggot who has brain problems.
How much of a retard does a person have to be to say they all look the same? Does the height differences, hair color, head shape and suit color be enough for you retards to not get it?
Oh thats right. /a/ is filled with autists who need bright clothing and wacky hair for them to be able to tell the characters apart. Morons everywhere.
I think someone should've said this to you already.
Your comment about hair was absolutely redundant.
Nah, bitch, I think there's no point, then.
Random but does anyone ever wonder about serious characters like that in real life? Ones with gravelly voices who are ultra serious....how do they make friends and how empty their lives are considering they lack emotion.
Sameface complaints are always so ridiculous, like the Hiraiface meme.
Bretty good, will watch samurai cut his own stomach open next week. I'm guessing they will or already plant some evidence or befriend the spy to get more info.
>this brainwashed retard thinks fearing death is cowardly
When there's death, there's nothing. Anything is better than nothing. Well, almost anything.
That doesn't change anything. If I weren't interested in winning I wouldn't even play in the first place.
They're not mutually exclusive.
>surely the enemies can't think they will win the war like we do
How can people be this retarded?
Totally not suspicious. Not at all.
Is he Davido-kun's grampa?
>nationalism is wrong
while I used to be an anti-nationalist in highs chool for this same belief, patriotism in the short run can be constructive towards developing countries and nations struggling to keep an identity
I don't see it as something toxic anymore unless you have radicals killing and dying for their country
But for a person to be proud of their nationality because they consider it part of their identity in their upbringing is nothing to be ashamed of
>But for a person to be proud of their nationality because they consider it part of their identity in their upbringing is nothing to be ashamed of
It's a hugely limiting mindset.
There's a difference between having to and wanting to and it's not in the intensity.
>Yeah but living with your family is better than dying for them.
That's subjective and also implies that the scenario has a person who has the luxury to live with his family peacefully
Just saying that the approach to death is always too extreme for either say
If you die then it is over and it's meaningless
Dying for your country to be recognized as a hero (a value I strongly disagree with)
But there are those who would die in the name of their an art or passion, to try and leave and impression in someone or some people, self sacrificial for people you love
There's many ways. I understand where you're coming from and the point of doing everything you can to live with a purpose, but also consider that dying for something isn't meaningless. It all depends on your values and the meaning you give to life and death
>It's a hugely limiting mindset.
You say that because you had the luxury of an education
While nationalism is a stupid ideal, different countries have different cultures and point of views
your anti nationalism might also be something cultural your country shares, either european or american I presume, a lot citizens are antinationalist on ideals alone, and dream of a world where people would just get along under one roof
But the moment you look down another country or citizen for expressing their nationalism, you are expressing your own ideals which were cultivated by your culture
For the most point, I agree with you though, but nationalism is just a form of natural unity or label that each species expresses
Ignore me, I just posting fedora reaction image.
Yama no Susume World Tour featuring the rest of the X-Men when?
Death itself holds no value, at least you should be talking about the results of your actions that lead to your death. If it were your own actions that lead to your death then your choice is stupid.
>You say that because you had the luxury of an education
I don't condemn people but not being educated is not an excuse.
I'm anti ideals.
>Jokerfags are the new G-Recofags
That's not my problem, retard. I get that they're going for fish out of water everyman, the problem is that he just comes across as a total fucking retard surrounded by geniuses, which is a terrible way to write your show.
>>They probably found the incriminating evidence the last time they raided the weeb's house.
Are you stupid? It was raided by a separate team working for the head-boss.
They're just going to plant evidence.
Do you even know what character development is? He starts a naive military drone and as the show progresses he'll become aware of all the shit happening that will change his beliefs.
Do you even know what writing is? It's fine to portray a character as naive, the problem is when he's written as a literal retard.
The main issue I see is that with 9 dickbag psychopaths, he's always going to be playing catchup. In a better show, you'd have more normal characters for the MC to play off, instead of being the lowest rung on the special needs ladder.
sometimes in life you do literally have to play catchup, especially considering the times, he's a military guy (probably coming from some poor background, with little to no education besides military) while the other guys graduated from colleges, studied a lot of shit and probably know about this whole situation already like >>139665190 mentioned.
MC will evolve, unless he's gonna die, that's the point of character development like >>139665269 pointed out
Hyouka wasn't a light novel, but its volumes were published on magazines, Shinsekai yori or The Perfect Insider are better examples (maybe Tatami Galaxy and Ukouten too, but i'm not sure)
So by that logic, would The Hound of the Baskervilles be considered a LN, since it was published in a magazine?
I get your point though. I just sincerely don't know how much they sell
>not macross delta
kill yourself my man
Watch a real high potential anime.
The impact is all the greater when it hits the ground.
I really like the opening, but everything ripping-off True Detective's introes lately is seriously triggering my autism.
This seems like it's going to be a pretty good show. There was one minor mistake in the history, though. The Washington Naval Conference where Herbert O. Yardley's cracking of the Japanese ciphers was in 1921-22 and not the previous year as the old man said. This might have been a translation error in the subs, however.
is that really a fault though?
maybe I do not see how having historical inaccuracies deter from how good a show is, especially if it's historical fiction
then again I know shit about world history like you do so my opinion im biased
Oh not at all. I'm just curious more if it was a translation error on the part of the guy doing the subs or not. Japan left the terms of the conference in 36 so I am wondering if perhaps the old man talked more about being under the terms until last year or something like that. It certainly doesn't detract in anyway. Hell, I'd forgot all about the Conference until watching this episode and I'd written a paper on it for a cryptography class.
