Can't wait for inevitable best girl to be sidelined and get 10 minutes screentime max.
Why do the best girls always get the least screentime? I can already tell all of my favorites are going to be reduced to bit parts.
So they can make more room for your typical cast of:
>genki main girl akeno
>try-hard girl mashiro
>refined girl moeka
>quiet girl shima
they will kill off half of them midway through.
Oh it's this meme again.
I bet you nothing will happen.
Smuggest girl of the season coming through.
Never mind I'm a retard that can't count
Dear /a/nons, all abord the ship. We're heading to the Battle of Jutland with cute girls
You keep thinking something is there when there isn't anything.
>there isn't anything
Episode 1 already had a premier and guys who went there have already spoiled a good amount of what's about to happening today. Just wait you there. Oh and don't forget your life jacket
They should have air this on Operation Ten-Go anniversary.
Some cancerous ban-evading yurifaggot with a tripfag will come here to shitpost. He may have a different name. Ignore and report him.
I wanted a GuP with carbon coated ships
Not cute girls fighting in a civil war and ships sinking when hit by torpedoes.
post yfw it's actually The Hunt for Harekaze
>mc and all the officer girls are indeed secretly trying to defect to other country
>only the vice-captain girl doesn't know about it
>I'm the captain here and I go down with this ship!
>Want cute girls doing ship things with yuri undertones
>Get cute girls doing deadly ship battles while trying to defect
with yuri undertones
I'm okay with this.
So your only choice is everyone dying or no one dying?
>yfw this ends with MC and childhood friend dying in each others arms, the last living members of their crew.
>Girls, it's been a long war, it's been a tough war. You've fought bravely, proudly for your country. You're a special group. You've found in one another a bond that exists only in combat, among sisters. You've shared cabins, held each other in dire moments. You've seen death and suffered together. I'm proud to have served with each and every one of you. You all deserve long and happy lives in peace.
You really don't. You can make tension being about something else like the tournament in GuP and not about death. They could make some ship tournament anime and it would be more fun.
I'm hoping for it to go full Spec-Ops though.
>Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it will begin streaming the Hai-Furi television anime on April 9 at 12:30 p.m.
>select all boats
You can make shows about all sorts of things, but as far as dark cute girls shows, which is what this seems to be, the rule tends to be serious situations that make the audience constantly believing that anyone could die, but without anyone significant actually (permanently) dying.
A lot of people still remember it, you get the occassional thread. Nobody could forget an anime like that with the impact it made.
I was around from back then and remember the speculah threads, those were the days. I'd love something similar.
She is on MC's team so she should have decent screentime. You're lucky compared to people who liked girls outside of it.
Even Madoka didn't permanently kill anyone off, as of Rebellion.
And I'd hardly call selling over twice your sales estimate and sparking its own fan convention "kinda failed". Similarly, Symphogear, SnW, Gakkou Gurashi...
I mean, I knew it was something GuP-esque considering the staff but I don't see any reason why they'd hide the twist if they weren't planning on making this go a bit grimdark.
Don't tell me they're trying too see if they can double the success of a show if they mashed GuP, boatshit, and potential tragedy shit together.
This is not what I expected if true
>I doubt /a/ remembers or even heard of So Ra No Wo To
great way to announce you're new, I love it, keep it up!
The fact that it tried to pretend to be something totally different is a real indicator that it's going to get not necessarily grim, but definitely pretty serious. There's no surprise value in "you thought it was going to be a cute school comedy at sea, but it was actually a cute school comedy... on boats!".
MC friend already got a death flag, they are using live ammo, studio want to "surprise". They are gonna hit other ships and then what? Can they really hit eachother without anyone getting hurt?
>Think a world similar to Simoun but with lesbians.
Do you mean Simoun world doesn't have lesbians? I'm confus
Now I'm actually scared to watch this, yet that fear makes me want to at the same time.
It's a death flag, but death flags are irrelevant when it's the kind of show that wants you believing that anything could happen next episode without it ever actually happening, which is what most of these shows are. Again, Karin.
Second-rate propaganda. What they need more is stuff like this.
Can't wait to see het-only's freak out over this, fellow b/u/ddy.
Was getting hit part of her plan?
I like how out of place the retrofitted radars are.
Who's the tanned cutie?
I'm doubtful. Whether it is good or not aside, it doesn't really share the charm that makes GuP good.
This episode felt like it could be the start of an interesting story, but will it still be interesting to continue after its conclusion?
Oh right, I kinda forgot how GuP was considered to be a horrible bomb for the first weeks.
Then, despite several delays (how many recaps where there again? Three?) it became a massive success.
>At the same time, maritime jobs were becoming more popular among women. Hence, the Blue Mermaids, tasked with keeping the seas safe
you'd think the show would be about these blue mermaids, but no, its about students trying to be blue mermaids
holy shit, this has to stop
I loved it, second best first episode of the season. So far Mei-chan seems like best girl. I don't think they're actually going to kill anyone off though, probably the most they'll go for is have a sad scene between MC-chan and her childhood friend as their ships are going at each other.
I think she's somehow trying to start some kind of revolution, and tricking the Harekaze girls into becoming maybe a banner of sorts for it.
Wasn't she also the only person on her ship when she was attacking them?
>Call me captain Nanoha.
This is gonna be pretty gay
Did the Harekaze fire a live torpedo? As far as I can tell, the order to load a training torpedo was improperly conveyed, leaving out the training part.
>Wasn't she also the only person on her ship when she was attacking them?
There were other people on the bridge when she is informed that the Harekaze is late, but we only see it again after it's been hit, where she is the only one.
Hanayo worst girl again.
>most incompetent X is made chief X.
>that bait and switch
They changed the whole damn website
Liked the first episode, I'm on board. They'll put a Yuyuyu on us, I can already see it.
You should ask Vivio.
AOTS. Cute girls operating huge war machines is my aesthetic.
I got the impression of something along those lines from the description, but couldn't fathom how they'd make a show about that, so I really had no idea what to expect before it aired.
If it has not MOE,, it is not an anime.
> YuYuYu was obvious from the start
Thanks captain obvious.
I'm not saying there weren't a bunch of people who fell for it, I'm merely saying those people were idiots. The PVs even showed their mascots and hero forms. We also had the LN spoilers early on about Gin dying.
Actually they say in the promos that it's tectonic subsidence.
Or is this the prequel to Gargantia?
Honestly, it kind of was. Even the PV showed them transforming and fairies, so it was at best a tossup between magical action of some kind or a weird chuu2-esque metaphor sequence. And that was just for the Western audience - Wasuyu was already in progress when the show started.
Not that that makes this going dark any less likely. If anything, the fact that it was clearly meant to mislead makes it more suspicious.
Who is the left girl? some helper from Germany?
The character page seems doesn't have her yet.
Literally cute girls doing naval warfare. I love it.
I wonder if its going to go full suffering or just GuP levels of fun.
The boat MC's friend is a captain of is missing as well.
Also pic related is best girl.
