This just aired in japan. Subs in about 50 mins.
I wonder how many episodes this will be since this isn't airing at late-night.
Arranged marriage Dead Family Member/s Exorcist/s Onmyouji Past Plays a Big Role School Boy/s Special Ability/ies Strong Female Lead Strong Male Lead Tragic Past
Action Comedy Drama Fantasy Harem Romance Shounen Supernatural
Since this is Pierrot, they probably will fuck it up somehow (if the anime original character is any indication). But I'll give it a shot. I hope they do the cute romance scenes properly though.
I've glanced at the manga briefly while looking for 7th Garden scans.
It looks kinda generic. Of course, "briefly" doesn't really do anything justice, and blonde/green is kinda hot. I might watch it.
According to chinese official stream site, this is 4 cour show.
what is it with japanese ghostbusters and possessed arms?
There's a difference between romance as in "dating and smoochies" and romance as in "they will probably starting dating and make smoochies once the actual story is over"
>turns from interesting to shit in less than three minutes
I mean anon asks if they will actually date, kiss and stuff and it will be shown in the manga.
I'm up to date with the scanlation.
Rokuro's spirit is most likely their son from the future right? But how is it possible if Abe no Seimei is still alive?
The girl likes him now, guy is obviously dense
But they have their cute moments
I'm talking about this kid. Since the Miko is one soul why is it here if Abe no Seimei is alive. Except if Abe no Seimei != Miko
They added some anime original stuff in the first episode, but if they can keep this animation quality up it will be pretty awesome
>Will they develop the 2 main characters relationship?
She wants his cock, but he's dense and oblivious like most shounen MCs. He also has a bit of a harem with Mayura and Sayo after his dick too.
>if they can keep this animation quality up
The artsyle is not bad after all
I thought it was gonna be shit when i saw the posters
And she's still a lot weaker than Rokuro. She barely managed to hold back Gigano. But now Rokuro is about to face Hijirimaru alone, and he's a lot stronger than Gigano (specially now that he absorbed Gigano's power). This fight will show you that Rokuro is at least 3 times stronger than Benio.
Really. I though if their kid is Rokuro's guardian then it having Seimei's seal as well as Seimei's mother recognizing it as such it means it's a reincarnation of Seimei.
The point Seimei's mother makes still stands if Seimei is still alive
>guy is obviously dense
>but he's dense and oblivious like most shounen MCs
Does he wants to stick it in her finally?
>No, she destroyed him.
No, she only destroyed his leg, and was knocked out. He could have killed her then, but chose to spare her.
>Rokuro is with Shimon though he is weakened and nothing has happened.
Shimon is out. Now Rokuro summoned the power of his guardian (Abe no Seimei) and is about to face Hijirimaru alone. And Hijirimaru is stronger now because he absorbed Gigano's power.
Seimei is Rokuro's guardian. The Miko is the ultimate warrior that combines the power of the exorcists and the power of the impurities. That's why Benio has an impurity (a Basara) as guardian.
If its such a chore then why even bother in the first place
It's not a chore.
It's just that I don't like to watch shonens while they air.
Was always that way with naruto, bleach or anything else.
I didn't even watch Jojo till it had about 4 episodes left and then quickly watched both seasons of crusaders to catch up with the last one.
Atleast we got Kacchan in both boku no hero academia and here.
The Chinese streaming site has the license for the show. Just like the french site that listed Boku no hero as 13 episode.
Anyways the show airs in the timeslot that usually has long running shows. Not sure why anyone would find this surprising.
>The Chinese streaming site has the license for the show
How do you know this, let alone it being official?
And didn't we already knew beforehand BnHa was going to be a single-cour? Did the French site even reported in 1st?
This is not how hair color works
This is not how a normal family should look
I liked it altough they kinda overused the attack cards. It looked cool the first time it happened (webm please) but it already grew old when they used it two more times in the battle at the end.
What a dumb question. Pierrot pretty much exists solely for purpose of adapting 200 series shounens.
Yu Yu Hakusho
Flame of Recca
Hikaru no Go
The Twelve Kingdoms
Not that it does it great, but it specializes on long running series.
I'm just glad this got animated. The story may not be all that good, but I'm just in it for the cute Benio and Rokuro interactions. I just hope Pierrot doesn't fuck this one up too bad but I'm probably being too optimistic.
I said adapted well. Naruto, Bleach and Beelzebub are shitty adaptations, TG is not even a shounen. Kingdom is seinen and the adaptation was shit. Some anime kisted are not even battle shounen
NO ONE, addaptes 50+ episode series well (unless its Sunrise Keroro Gunsou or Gintama).
There is also fuck zero difference if its "battle shounen" , seinen or magic academy harem with abttles in terms of production. Considering how Sunrise/Toei adapt low budget long running series, Pierrot is actually pretty decent up there as it manages with poor budget still make decent episodes at times.
They specifically do this close-up and there's no indentation. Absolute garbage.
What is this expression trying to convey?
None of those were "good" adaptations. HxH remake was better than original, but still nothing fancy.
if you wanted to bring good example it would be FMA:B, but thats entirely different case.
I dunno m8, I think that's how hair color works.
>This one is good.
Its shit too. Nothing about it stands out aside from the designs
Everything else its completely generic
Off the top of my head, Bones did FMA justice. Although that was the second time around.
And Tokyo Ghoul was just two cores, and a complete trainwreck of an adaption.
Pierrot seemed to do Yona okay though.
>girl literally falls from the sky
>because it's executed well
No it isn't, we are suppose to do have dual protagonists here but one of the two is a complete jobber only to give the generic shark toothed "I wanna be the strongest" fuck the spotlight every time
True. I really don't understand the first episode of FMAB, it's so at odds with the rest of the stories and when I recommend it to normies, I always have to throw in a "stick with it" apology for it.
I originally looked into this show because the idea of cute battle couple teamwork seemed decently unique and interesting, but if it's the same old 'protagonist is loads more op than everyone else and ends up beating most things by himself', that sounds boring as hell
>I originally looked into this show because the idea of cute battle couple teamwork seemed decently unique and interesting, but if it's the same old 'protagonist is loads more op than everyone else and ends up beating most things by himself', that sounds boring as hell
Protagonist is not very OP. He is not one of the strongest in the good guy's side and the villains are much stronger than he is.
Benio is not as much of a jobber as people pretend. She is about as strong as the protagonist, usually.
>She's weaker than Male-Mc before she got her leg power up.
She was better trained than he was, in the beginning. Then, he got stronger than she was, then she got her upgrade and now they are about as strong as each other.
I swear to god if this nigger don't shut the fuck up
Probably dies soon or is evil anyway
HOLY FUCK I AM MAD. WHY.
Also she's still alive and currently powered herself up to a very high level.
Also shit intro
How much QUALITY is this one going to have?
Do they really intend to do 4 cours?
Only watched this because it was one of the rare new animes that got over 8.0 point on myanimelist. Was a major disappointment for me. Seemed very generic and the whole exorsist/power thing was pretty boring.
lel, im not reading any of those reviews. Just look at the average score. Anime's below 8 will most likely not be masterpieces and animes below 7 are almost always shit.
This was just disappointment for me because usually animes that have over 8 points are pretty good or entertaining. It's pretty much imdb for animes.
There are people on /a/ who use MAL for something other than their database?
I would continue arguing but
you are somewhat correct. Still a lot of great and fun shows that are 10 times more entertaining have relatively shit scores compared to some pretentious absolutely boring bullshit just because they aren't "for mature viewers such as myself". There are a lot of examples for that.
She's cute, aloof girls that love food are my favorite.
Definitely going to keep watching.
>Benio jobbed but she still gets to shine. 29 was the first time she used her guardian, their powers are similar and the manga is far from over.
She got the guarding power but Rokuro is about to get an even stronger power up in chapter 30. She's always behind him in terms of power. She also gets her ass kicked considerably more than him. She also suffers from a lack of initiative as he's usually the one to take all the decisions and she just follows.
All in all, she definitely gets the short end of the stick in this team.
Tell me about Benio, why does she wear the mask?
also why did it have decorations at the beginning but blank at the end of the episode?
Though if you wanna spoil yourself it looks like it will be mostly faithful with only a few changes, like it's never explained in the manga why Benio fell from the sky and Mayura was introduced a little later.
>Unironically believing this much in MAL ratings
This is bait but I chuckled anyway, thanks anon
Rokuro decided to fight Yuuto, Benio followed. Rokuro decided to take the test to go to the island, Benio followed. Rokuro decided to rescue Sayo, Benio followed.
The one time Benio took a decision of her own was one she went to fight Kamui. But she went solo and got her ass kicked.
Decent first episode but it seems like one of those show that would be much more enjoyable if you marathon it. I mean especially with it apparently being 4 cours. I'd probably forget what was in the beginning or lose interest half way through if I have to wait for a year for it to end.
Bonus point's for MCs weapon though. I have a huge boner for gauntlet/boots weapons.
One of the MC's is a saucy haughty battle loli with a hime cut and perma frown who has super powered legs. If you are into the whole proud battling ojou-sama kind of thing she's prime fetish fuel. She's also voiced by Megumi Han who has proven she can pretty much do it all, hot-blooded, vulnerable, sassy, serious, comedic.
I wouldn't say thats following so much as Roku does the talking while Benio prepares, since they are on the same wave length, Like when they save Ryoga, she was making the travel spells already by time Roku showed up to beg her for help.
These are the most beautiful and useful webms I've seen in my entire life. Please continue doing them in the future as I feel I won't be able to offer 20 minutes of my time to this series every week.
This is your lead female character Benio. She's gonna be popular enough, especially if this blows up like Tokyo Ghoul did. It's also by the guy that did Binbougami-Ga whose art style I like a lot. He only seems to do monthly manga though but you also get like 60 pages at a time.
So this is what best girl of the season looks like.
Anon you maid a mistake but no worries I will help.
>She's gonna be popular enough, especially if this blows up like Tokyo Ghoul did
You know, it'll be hilarious if this series gets more popular than Boku no Hero. I know it won't happen but still an amusing thought.
>Stop with your bullshit now. She got her time to shine but saying that she put a better fight is retarded.
You're retarded. Benio only put up a fight after Sayo unlocked her guardian. Without it, she was completely useless.
Mayura might not have done any considerably damage, but she stood her grand long enough for Sayo do her thing.
The best girl of the season will always have an almost hime cut with black hair, near omni-present perma-frown, awesome legs and a hot blooded streak of pride and a little angst. A tight fitting battle suit is fine too.
And so? Benio fight in the first place since she has been knocked out by a surprise attack. How can you say that she did better that Mayura fought better then? You don't make sense.
Supposedly at least 48 though I don't know how that'll work seeing as there's only something like 28 chapters so far as it's a monthly manga. If they do one episode per chapter in 12 months it'll still fall 8 episodes short so I expect some filler.
Well both aren't going to be the peak hype shows for this season but they're guaranteed to last a hell of a lot longer and probably have more highs past the first few episodes. Personally I like my anime series to last like Jojo or Gundam rather than be a whirlwind of hype that's here and gone again in a couple months.
>3 girls already introduced and more to come
I love battle harems and I'm gonna enjoy this, I read a bunch of chapters back then so the future episode will be all new to me, that's exciting.
Honestly, even though its like stereotypical shonen to a fault, I actually really liked it. Maybe its the MC's suffering and shark teeth, or that the heroine is actually a real cutie pie, but I get the impression that I'll end up finishing it really enjoying it.
Hows the manga?
I really enjoyed the styling of it. There was some good presentation.
Well, there is Benio, Mayura, and Sayo all going for the shark D. I would say at least three girls constitutes a harem.
Though Sayo is a dying loli so she's out, and Mayura is getting shipped with fly boy so she's out and the girls in that pick have not appeared even in the Manga, with the only new girl getting her head diced. So not a harem
It is simiñar as uq holder, it starts as a regular shonen and they keep adding bitches figthing against/with the mc, in this one the bitches don't jump directly at his dick but it is well implied, get real regular battle have a bigger cast of interesting males, in this one there is a lot more focus in women because its a harem.
Wow, a Twin Star thread that didn't 404 after 20 posts, 15 of which were shit posts.
I wanna cry
Trying to get this board to talk about the manga was like pulling teeth. But fuck it, i'll enjoy the two or three weeks people talk about it before it just becomes waifu and shitposting
as long as it continues to know its audience, Im fine with it
