Less than two hours before airing. Let's have a thread.
What I know so far :
>Kotaro Tamura directed and story boarding the OP
>Umetsu handles the ED (Director/Storyboard/AD), and shit was so full of homolust
>Hayashi Yuki and Takashi Tomioka KA on first episode
>Two tracks from Lotus juice, they also hyping for BASED IWASAKI for his glorious OST, saying the man is genius.
>Igarashi direction is really fun and good, probably almost similar to Host club.
Also, this is staff for second episode (from people who came to advanced screening).
Episode 2 : "One Bomb"
Script : Enokido
Storyboard : Igarashi
Episode Director : Satou Ikuro
Episode 3 : "Yokohama Gangster Paradise"
Cover for BD Volume 1. Will be released on June 24th
Just how edgy will Kensho be?
Full OP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYStpywSWC4
>Umetsu handles the ED
Homolust or no, I'm in!
Best boy needs some TLC and a whole lot of healing.
I already want S2 for this scene.
Meanwhile at Bones.
kek the ED fujobaits so fucking hard
How many ass shots will Atsushi get in total?
>[HorribleSubs] Bungou Stray Dogs - 01 [720p].mkv
Not as much rigged, as judging panels nowadays are just filled with idiots that only care about vocal tone. It happens everywhere.
A lot of other seiyuu singers that are constantly praised suffer from faulty technique.
Something tells me there will have to be an 'MC has his ass out' count for every episode.
>'MC has his ass out' count
there's nothing fujo about this except for character design (at least in the manga there's no manservice)
that said this is gonna be this season's Gangsta. It starts of well and then it goes full retard, introducing 3 new enemies every chapter...
It's a clusterfuck.
>There are four for this cour.
How is this allowed?
At least they are not on spreads.
>but describing every second show with this term
Who's doing that? the only ones I've done that for were Joker Game and Bungou. The blatant BL series is what it is.
I admit my assumption about Joker Game was wrong, despite the cast being entirely handsome men it has a very down to earth tone and looks like it should be fine.
Yes and? It's not like they're removed from the anime.
>all those perfect girls
Holy shit, I want them all.
>Yes and? It's not like they're removed from the anime.
No, but the aim for the audience is pretty damn obvious
It's not like we're going to see those girls in figures or posters unlike the guys
>It is pretty cliche shounen manga
That's the most depressing part. You strap yourself in for a wild ride and expect an entertaining clash of personalities given who the characters are based on but you get fucking nothing. Battle shounen nonsense where the characters barely resemble who they're supposed to. Once the main plot with edgy-kun is finished they even bring in evil Western literary figures and then it's more irrelevant fights heaped upon more irrelevant fights. And don't get me started on these shitty characters, Dazai ends up being this boring piece of shit who Miyano suits perfectly. It looks cool and all but seriously, from a story and character perspective this is an absolute waste of potential.
Ranpo is still best boy.
I'm not disagreeing about who they're targeting but it still doesn't change that there are girls in the series.
Bones did this on purpose didnt they?
Telling the fujos to fuck off
How the fuck is the original manga in Young Ace? This looks something that should have been in the shoujo magazine Asuka!
Which includes other series like
- Boku Dake ga Inai Machi
- Black Rock Shooter - Innocent Soul
- Onii-chan no Koto ga Suki Sugite Nyan Nyan Shitai Burakon Imouto dakedo Sunao ni Narenai no
- Chotto Kawaii Iron Maiden
There's no way the otaku seinen reads this
>he still thinks demographics mean anything!
You haven't seen the ED have you? The homo come mostly from him.
Its manga for litterature fags, as it features Famous mystery authors as characters and mainly interesting to those who recognize the references and plots (same to rampo kitan anime), rather than general audience.
Fancy Fujoshi designs are just to sell it better.
>this battle finished, here have another
>that battle finished, here have another
I get that they probably didn't want to spoil the MC's power but I think this is the first time I've seen a show put the OP at the end of the first episode and then still show the ED right afterwards.
Wow great way to start off an anime.
20 minute unfunny comedy skit and 8 minutes of actual plot presence and some action
Well I'm a litfag and have in fact gone through most of the Japanese literature that Bungou has referenced, and honestly the series is an embarrassment. The characters are your dime a dozen pretty boys with the added quirk of being named after this particular author or having an attack based on their most popular work. It eventually gets to a point where you can tell the mangaka doesn't know what the hell they're doing and just introduces a figure and their most popular work for the hell of it without really doing anything major. And it just keeps going.
Some of the relationships are amusing given the context (like Tanizaki and Naomi, or what happens with Izumi when she's introduced) but that's about it. It's essentially a shounen battle series under the guise of a litfag manga.
Never said its high litterature. Just that it is published in seinen magazine because its target appeal is exactly that - references. It doesnt even have to copy the plots or anything.
Its no different from Kancolle.
>Daddy will never love me
He just wants his daddy's love ;_;
Really some very nice backgrounds in this
Visually its the best thing this season
The OP/ED, music and the fact that it looks really good are the only thing this show has going for it. Bones should've poured their resources into something better.
The suicide gag, and the banter between suicide man and his partner is already annoying.
Yep they looks great.
Boys can't be semen demons
Pretty fucking meh to be honest, Your old grandma could have figured he was the tiger and the main dude having the god skill that nulls the ability like what the fuck.
I'll finish but like come on man, Gotta stop giving these MC's god tier skills so early on.
The book was published under that name, and later republished under the other
In other countries it still often was published under original name, and even movie adaptations made under that title.
Hope you enjoy it.
Just pointing out that using that name as power, is insufficient knowledge and research of author, as its not the real title of the novel. Even if you go to Wiki bibliography of her right now, you`ll find it listed as Ten Little Niggers. The fact that you were exposed to otehr version of the name, does not mean its most known. "And then there were none" is merely US published version because of "reasons". Hell, US even changed niggers to Indians in its version.
If that that was not politecorrect to manga author, there were plenty of other cool sounding novel titles that could be used for power name.
I'm a big fan of Kensho and am curious to hear him in this role. Is that character really interesting? Didn't get too far into the manga yet, my favorite is >>139694859 so far
He's the villain of the first part. I don't know if you're find his obsession with Dazai interesting or not.
I just climbed several points on the Kinsey scale
There are plenty of guys not familiar with the term fujoshit. They will watch this and enjoy this, because they're not paranoid.
Action and good music is all you need really, people have watched stuff for less.
Didn't even know it was supposed to be fujoshit. It's has humor, good animation and ost (so far), and potential for some interesting mysteries. I don't see what's there not to like.
Weekly reminder that pats are anything but gay
Anything that has a mainly male cast is trying to get female audience which means it's fujoshit for /a/.
There was only one moment that could have been called fujoshit in ep1 and it was a setup for a joke. The humor was good and the setting seems somewhat interesting so I'll keep watching but my expectations are mild at best.
Stop, you'll make Akutagawa cry.
I have more of a problem when fujos try to force their shit into the threads of such shows. Nothing wrong with a comment or joke here and there, but the threads for some shows turned into image dumps and lots of arguing about shit like that.
Other than that, I'm reading the manga and I think I'll enjoy this. It's nothing terribly amazing so far, but it's fun.
Why all boys who are voiced by Ono Kensho are homosexual?
Yeah that can happen. I don't really have a problem with blatant homolust shows since I won't watch them and can just hide the threads but Osomatsu for example was purely a comedy with a male cast, yet the threads were torn to shreds by fujos/gays.
>Its manga for litterature fags
I don't really consider it that because the characters are't like the people they're named after. I like Dazai and Kenji Miyazawa's work and the series has nothing to do with them personally or based off their writing.
But JoJo threads are generally considered cancer. I have nothing against fujobait, but I have something against obnoxious threads. I'll drop this subject now since it's off topic.
This. The Jojo threads are general shit so they'd be cancer even without any fujo. Shitheads are just posting the exact same phrases, memes and pics again and again for 4 years now.
No, all four are females. This is a female too.
Aren't traps more of a harem hijink anyway? You see them fucking everywhere nowadays - fujostuff often has one or two feminine males but real traps aren't a fujo thing as far as I know.
Nothing will ever sell Osomatsu tier.
And the problem is that there are a bunch of fujo pandering series there right now so it will probably depend on which series the masses of fujo will latch on to.
No idea but she's androgynous so not everyone knows.
>Anime aimed at fujo
>HURR HURR WHY ARE YAOI SHITTER IN THIS
Do you also go in harem threads bitching about shipping and moeshit threads bitching about "best girl" posts?
An anime can be aimed at fujos without the threads being nothing but shipfests and gayposting. I want to avoid another Osomatsu.
>A couple of posts
Wow, you are an idiot.
Also you think Otaku are the ones buying the DVD and merchandise?
Maybe you should stick to your re:zero or whateverfucking harem anime is airing now if you can't handle some people posting stuff you don't like?
This, the problem are shipperfags. All kinds of them.
I can't count how often it became impossible to discuss hetero series or even non-romance series thanks to avid shipper fags who flooded every thread with pics of their shitty pairing and/or their hate when their crap didn't become canon.
Chuya also has some beautiful brotherly moments with Dazai, he's also part of his harem.
Let's me guess, you also watched K and Seraph and complained about the fujos?
So she's going to be best girl, right? I hope she and the MC have a thing between them, she's really cute.
I like the MC's power, it seems pretty unique, but his hair pisses me off.
Fuck yeah, now I'm pumped
>tfw Daddy doesn't love you and adopts a new son
I really liked the twist about Ranpo Kitan, it was a fun one.
First we had Slaine with his nickname "bat" and count uniform, then Mika who was a literal vampire and now this guy and his coat and frills. Is this going to be Kensho's style?
You don't really have to know anything about the writers, just that the names of their skills are stuff they've written. I think the skills are based more on the names of the books rather than their contents. There are also Western writers too, like John Steinbeck or Agatha Christie.
>Show aimed at otaku pigs
>Shit like re:zero or hundreds
>Diverse shows like Bungo Stray Dogs, Joker Game or Rakugo
Cry come fat otaku pig.
Is this what fanservice is like these days?
Well that was a pretty great first episode. I'd say I hope for this to continue if it weren't for the fact that I'm aware Bones is doing 2 other shows this season, though I have no idea which one of those they will focus their resources on. Also, the source material is pretty popular, right? And not because of fujoshi only?
>the detective is named edogawa rampo
Dazai, Akutagawa and Ranpo aren't exactly unknown if you've been watching Chinese cartoons for a while. Didn't know about the others though.
I don't think it's that obscure a hobby for people interested in Japanese media.
Your estimation of anime fans is far, far above what it should be. You'd have to go far above just consuming anime to bother looking into fiction authors, let alone reading their works.
The entire "check out the nice beam" bit felt like something straight out of Yozo's inner monologue.
Nozumo doesn't really compare to Yozo much, because he's too much of a caricature.
Well, that's why I said interested in Japanese media. And you have anime like Aoi Bungaku and more or less Ranpo Kitan too which adapt some of the works of the authors named here.
If I'm honest, the literary references are pissing me off. I'd prefer a complete caricature like Nozomu to a half baked and in your face allusion
>his special move is No Longer Human
I am currently studying literature, but I had an interest in Japanese literature long before post secondary.
I'm not the only that thought it was a bit cringy to name the powers with some /lit/ references right?
Ranpo Kitan is the only reason I recognized Edogawa's name.
I didn't even make the connection immediately between the ability being called "No Longer Human" and the works covered in Aoi Bungaku, mainly because I watched it while it was airing years ago and never felt any inclination to remember the author's name.
Similarly, I only recognized Miyazawa Kenji because of Punchline.
The rest of the references flew right over my head.
the manga is pretty boring and has no appeal to anyone that isn't a hardcore fujo
the biggest let-down is that the characters might as well be all-original characters instead of adaptations of real world writers and nothing would change, it's just generic super-power shounen with extra homolust.
I've seen worse. Like if the characters and powers were named after famous philosophers and concepts instead.
Then again, a character being called Nietzsche-kun on its own would be mildly amusing.
>>If I'm honest, the literary references are pissing me off
It's the little things that work.
Everything bigger, like the naming scheme, just falls apart, since it tends to look really tacky.
They're mostly names.
The most amusing is the one from Motojiro Kajii;
we are baited into thinking that his power is to create lemon-shaped bombs, but in fact his true ability is, not to be harmed by any lemon-shaped bombs.
Anon, I watched Rashomon in high school classes and seen Dazai referenced in probably a few dozen anime/manga series. These aren't some really obscure authors.
>Similarly, I only recognized Miyazawa Kenji because of Punchline.
>not because of the four anime adaptations of his books
A literature degree put my ability to enjoy literature in the grave. Everything I pick up either reeks of an inept writer blissfully unaware that what they put on the page isn't coming across how it sounded in their head, or some pretentious intellectual with prose draped in ostentation that's only thinly masking an idea and concept every bit as flimsy as the former.
Not to say that books are inherently bad, but it feels like every author I come across is utterly bereft of humility and it bubbles through their writing, good or bad. I'd rather enjoy a fun story told by a storyteller that has fun telling it. Contemporary literature seems to be mired either in the inability to distance itself from vogue cultural criticism, or else in some obsession with being groundbreaking.
I blame post-structuralism.
oh man, there were so many cats in his books. Also I vaguely remember a scene with someone eating something disgusting described in detail, though I might be mixing that up with GoT where Reek ate that rat
I thought it was cool.
Not sure why /a/ is so paranoid about "fujoshit"
soseki is probably the most important 20th century japanese author. the most well known (who isn't murakami) may very well be mishima. if you're looking for something patently "japanese", id think kawabata. then of course you have weirdos like dazai, for which the mc of this is named after.
Not fujobait at all
All I saw was this and the description of dudes chasing a supernatural tiger and thought "sweet this'll be just like bakemonogatari"
He only really did wub stuff for Jormungand, Jojo and Gatchaman
AkG, Mahouka (which was still mostly electronic regardless) and Noragami never really strayed into that category, so I'd wager the phase is over
>getting mad at homoshit on /a/
Nice to see Bones keeping that post-revival consistency going. Looks like Soul Eater.
Anime about solving mysteries, especially series about solving SUPERNATURAL incidents, always make me wary.
In all my decades of Chinese cartoons, it's just been Tezuka's stuff, Kekkai Sensen and Milky Holmes that I've enjoyed.
But MC's special ability here isn't anything fancy, he just turns into a fucking tiger. So I am optimistic.
I'm not really a fan of the "mystery of the day" kind of deal.
I'll stick for a few episodes and see how good it does. So far the character interactions are great and Dazai has been based as fuck, mc is kinda shit.
Hopefully this turns out to be better than Kekkai Sensen. Fewer characters means that you get to focus on them more, and should lead to a tighter narrative where all of them are relevant to the story.
This is actually that bothered me about Kekkai Sense. You had a shitton of good designs and characters, but they barely had any screen time. The main cast looks great, even the little shit that always turns out to be an annoying little shit.
Wait a sec, is that best Shingan singing?
>Shingans doing the OP
It's Shuzu as the MC, Rom as his partner and Crow as another guy and singing the OP.
Shounen Maid is irrelevant, and not really gay. Super Lover is shit and will flop like Love Stage, the only BL series that sells decently is Nakamurashit,
the other Nakamura don't apply here, because Doukyuusei is a movie.
These would probably be the most entry-level/easy to find
I Am a Cat
No Longer Human
Night on the Galactic Railroad
The Temple of the Golden Pavillion
The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With the Sea
All the characters or at least most are alt universe Japanese literary figures
I feel like it'd be cringe to me ... if I was Japanese.
Also this is why most of the mains are male but this makes /a/ uncomfortable since no tig bitties implies fujoshit
Does this make you cringe? It should.
I like you too, anon-san!
