Wait a goddamn minute. This OP is literally "Take on Me" but more techno
It's okay, I did too, anon.
You're not alone.
>Trigger hard at work making Art Anime
>people comparing it to a mememystery show
nice try, actually not really
No I am only the second one you quoted, shitposter.
Why wouldn't you? A show can only get so horrible in the first episode and even if the writing might turn out to be shit later on the direction has been somewhat entertaining so far.
It's almost like people take the whole THIS WRITER HAS MADE A SHOW I DIDN'T LIKE SO THIS ONE HAS TO BE THE WORST SHOW EVER BY EPISODE ONE-posting seriously.
ED has some good stills.
When was the last time we got an OP with visuals this good?
too bad it's ruined by the random potatoe chip product placement
This fucking character design man.
This first episode had a lot of problems that i can just ignore, but for real though.
The fuck is up with the whole "extreme traumatic experience in the past gave me super powers + amnesia" ploy cliché,
Did the writers even fucking try?
is that a joke
this looks less like an OP and more like marketing material or something. I'm surprised the characters even moved and weren't just stills cut and pasted from the model sheets
>the better a series is the worse its threads are
>"you were able to live because we divided the pain multiple ways!!"
>someone gets punched in the face
>everyone gets the EQUAL amount of facepain
which one is it
is 1 unit of pain inflicted on one person applied to each person as 1/6th unit, or as 1 unit?
Either everyone should have died when he got pushed, or they should have just felt a minor tingle from that face puncch.
sorry, ffmpeg was being a faggot again
So what if one of them has to take a really painful shit?
Are they all sitting in class straining out one giant collective turd?
i was just about the post better quality ver my nigga (it should look better)
Right, this wasn't consistent. Maybe they were just surprised. No one actually moved like they were kicked in the face.
I'm also really interested if they'll feel psychological pain too, seems like a really important part if they want the experiment to be meaningful.
actually i didn't get that point
he didn't survive because he didn't feel pain (actually he wouldn't sense any) it's no the pain to kill you, so maybe she meant that the damage itself was divided?
It's a high school setting with a mastermind idol girl who apparently has a army of mickey mouse mascots to kidnap and perform surgery on 6 seperate high school kids, and never mentions anyone being concerned they are missing. It also opens with some traumatic past where someone dies and has a life changing experience for MC that isn't explained and he can't remember himself.
I'm pretty sure this story is going to be wildly inconsistent with several aspects of it's plot, so you should probably not worry about it.
Mc and me
Have you considered that she's lying?
Or that she tweaked the system when it wasn't necessary to save MC-kun's life so they would learn she wasn't bullshitting them as soon as possible?
She needed them to believe her, but everyone who wasn't MC-kun called bullshit. The best way for them to learn, then, is for them to experience the system at work.
Of course, the pain an average person goes through normally divided by 6 would be almost impossible to notice, so they would still think she's full of shit (or maybe not, if they noticed they were suffering less than usual, but the chick seems to be sadistic anyways, so she'd rather go with them learning through pain)
Oh god guys episode 2 will be worse, apparently crazy bubbly girl is gonna freak out about her fairies not actually being real, and she believes in them do to some DEEEEEEP trauma, and it's gonna be a cringe fest.
fuck and i thought this show couldn't get any worse.
makes me wonder what it would be like if Eva was airing today
I bet you actually hate every of their anime because it's always these few series that get mentioned in these cases but then you usually can't even mention Monster on /a/ without getting shitposted to death with "pretentious shit" and overhype paranoia.
you told me to name some and I did, get out of my face lil boy
>the mc could've been a girl
>we were robbed of a cute, white-haired, cute girl getting the piss beaten out of her and not caring
Fuck dude, my dick would've been hard as a rock
Shipperfags were always the most avid fans and they're everywhere. The bad thing is that they will ruin threads no matter what happens since no pairing will ever please all of them and those who don't get what they want will kill the threads with NTR bullshit and waifu wars.
How is it contrived, retard?
Because clearly the shady chick can't lie. Or, given that she's in control of the system, tweak it for her own purposes. Specially when everyone calls bullshit. and she needs them to believe her
But mc got my dick hard without being a girl. He's already perfect.
This is now a mayoiga thread.
Lovepon is best girl
So I guess this is a supposed to be a deconstruction of different anime tropes? So far we have emotionless, delinquent, genki, tsundere, and whatever the blue haired girl is. We know the goth kid is coming, so all we're missing is Yandere.
>make something shitty and derivative
>call it a deconstruction
I like mayoiga and Lovepn, but you should consider suicide for this kind of shitposting
Can we please stop using this deconstruction bullshit? The only thing it does is inciting shitpost wars. This isn't a fucking deconstruction, nor 95% of all other anime that are called deconstructions of whatever. And I fail to see how the stereotypes you mention are anything but stereotypes.
>Pain is felt equally
>Damage gets distributed evenly
What don't you people understand?
things that are possible with a surgical implant into nerves
things that are not possible with a surgical implant into nerves
She didn't say that, did she? We have no idea if the show has any internal consistency because of this shit. If it is that way, why didn't she say that? She was explaining what it is without saying very much at all for the entire second half of the episode.
Yes, if you get fucking blunt impacted you can't change the actual physical damage and tissue death, nor can you really even inflict it in others to match (but this is a much less relevant point)
you can fuck with pain but not with the actual damage to the body like this
Mari Okada has also worked in Gundam and M3. Fucking giant robots aren't possible at all outside of the realm of fiction
So shut your whore mouth, realismfag
Your kind is a cancer that shouldn't consume any kind of fiction
>She didn't say that, did she?
There's a difference between believable fantasy and completely retarded garbage which just breaks immersion
mechs are physically possible - nothing in physics or reality prohibits them - just retarded and bad in reality for warfare.
likewise it is conceivable to modulate and control pain via the nervous system, both to reduce and inflict, but it is not conceivable that this kind of tech can do anything regarding physical damage.
Now if you wanted to do that, you'd have to invoke nanomachines or something like that.
Why in the bloody fuck would anyone name their son Tenga?
What's do the flowers imply?
Romance? Innocence? Peace? Fragility?
Chidori x Me after she loses the MC bowl
High energy blondie's abduction was hilarious. Anyone has a webm for it?
I think it'd significantly decrease the gap if it included emotional pain. It wouldn't jumpstart world peace but it'd certainly decrease conflict. The most likely outcome would be a culture where people refuse to interact out of fear of hurting each other.
This is fiction. The realm where you can seal fucking people's souls in card games, and use a magic book to make God fucking mortal and the heavily damage Him with anti-bunker missiles, then finish Him off by going into His soul and summoning a robotic dragon with three heads to eat it (it being God's soul)
>I'm a brain damaged retard who has no idea how anything works so it's impossible for immersion to be broken for me by bad writing
>all anime is the same
I forgot about the bimodal IQ distirbution in anime communities.
>use a magic book to make God fucking mortal
this is /a/
>r-realism is bad
It has already canonically attempted to go the realism route by using surgery - not epic anime magic - to demonstrate the mechanism by which the system operates.
It has attempted to half-ass this solution and thus has failed miserably. It would have been better if they did not try.
They fucked up hard by trying to explain things but doing it wrong.
at first yea, thought the same thing.
Only way to explain it was that it hadn't 'activated' yet. And that him taking the fall turned it on, and thus they felt nothing yet.
And that she was doing stuff off the computer, so that may have been starting it.
Let's just hope they can be a little more consistent.
>It has already canonically attempted to go the realism route by using surgery
Are you being stupid on purpose?
And brain surgery shouldn't be able to make you talented in luck and yet that didn't stop Danganronpa from using brain surgery to explain Izuru having every single talent (including luck)
Stop complaining about stuff not being realistic
>entire ED is cute wifu bait
>this is that market we're going for
Trigger knows how to make $.
Just finished it, I thought it was pretty good with an interesting set up. Of course I can tell it's gonna be one of those all or nothing shows, it's going to end up being really good or really bad. Interesting premises regardless.
>/a/ doesn't even know basic human biology
Depends on how you look at it, it may seem like he's lying on a very shiny floor.
How does that matter in the realm of fiction where writers ignore it as they see fit?
I mean, menstruation is basic human biology and tons of writers ignore it.
There are tons of works featuring post puberty chicks that never seem to be on their periods even when the work itself takes place over more than a month and the female characters aren't pregnant
>give us something similar to Take On Me - A-Ha
Its so good.
Looking forward to the full version.
the entire plotline of those stories dont revolve around menstrucation
the entire plot of this is surgical implant to control pain (logical, non-immersion breaking, valid), but they have a massive plothole that it cannot possibly control damage (immersion destroying, invalid, and illogical)
They are. We can make a space elevator, physically speaking, as carbon nanotubes are strong enough.
There is no reason in physics you can't build mechs. They're just too expensive and not worth it so we don't do it IRL, but in a fictional meme universe, we can imagine they do, and it doesn't break immersion
Holy shit, you must either be baiting or have insanely high autism levels
If Danganronpa is allowed the bullshit of brain surgery to make a super genius with every talent including fucking luck, Kiznaiver is allowed to explain the Kizuna system via surgery
I've listened to the OP about 20 times already.
They did tho
I'll give you tank-like and spider mechs but humanoid bipedal types with fully articulating joints and human-like movement is uncontrollable without some kind of direct neural control system and even then I don't see how something that huge could support it's own weight in our gravity without the engineers just saying "fuck it lets put it on wheels"

Too bad than Danganronpa is /a/ related now, not only because of the first VN's adaptation, but because of the DR3 project, which is 100% anime original and isn't adapting anything
To be fair, they haven't tried to hide the MC's pairing given they and Luluco's main pairing exchanged places in both shows' promo arts for Aprils Fools
Yuta-kun desu knows what's good in life
the characters have scars because the series was perfect with no plotholes until they added that "divides damage" gaffe.
It's perhaps a lampshade deconstruction because their own characters are scarred by it, much like their writing and series is scarred.
What the hell is wrong with his wrist?
Why has no one mentioned that they made an entire series based on the Pain arc from Naruto?
I decided, i'm gonna grow my hair like based Tenga.
>reaction images HAVE to be anime
If you have super skinny wrists but its probably just the animators exaggerating
Posted this in the other thread.
anything better for Pink Kamina?
Calling it now, every character looks very generic but they'll have a twist in their personality.
He acts like a playboy but is some masochist hungry for femdom
Treats people as shit because she thinks she's a shitty person and doesn't deserve friends
She acts like a moralfag but does it just for attention and has a strong bitch side
She's normal but acts like a retard because she's broken in the inside
Something with his past i guess
He does everything not because he wants but just to look cool
I feel ya OP, but let me ask a question:
What is the best Boom Boom Satellites song and why is it "Shut Up and Explode"?
[RUN AWAY intensifies]
Sounds about right
Yandere levels of jealousy
Still unsure on this one
Extreme lethargy and unwillingness to act, even when his friends are in danger
In love with money.
>all these pathetic faggots that liked it but can't admit it without saying shit like "help me"
How fucking scared of /a/'s reaction could you possibly be? Fucking pathetic spineless cunts
The OP was fucking amazing.
Episode was all setup, but did it well. Can't wait for more. It's pretty interesting where it can go from here, it definitely has potential.
This. Everyone's too scared at getting a (You) reply from a shitposter, saying that they're taste is shit for liking it (not hating it with the shitposting bandwagon).
When all the shitposters themselves have some of the worst, most contrived criticism it's not even funny. Why would anyone take them seriously if their best argument is "waaah episode one out of 25 didn't explain all the plot elements". Anons are fucking gutless these days.
They're all in the other thread. Thanks to the shitty OP post.
>not posting back on my feet
I really like "Shut up and Explode" too though, actually there's only a few BBS songs I don't like. I really love this band.
Reminder that the characters and scenes are color-coded and that we were specifically told to pay attention to the colors. The color scheme of the opening scene is
red. The initial connection the sequence of events implies is a red herring. The girl who dove off the pile of playground equipment is Chidori, whose color is red.The lens flare is also a red herring, because he can't remember her face.
I loved it too. On the topic of the OP I thought it was unreal, I loved the swirling lights. OST in general is really slick, like the song that played while they wheeled him through the hospital.
Episode 3 has the "twist". It's not a dark big twist, but it changes your expectations of the show. It's a bit like that Chronicle movie. This shot in all the PVs? He isn't jumping just to prove that he can't die and the Kiznaiver System doesn't just make them share pain. ;)
That could also be an attempt to mislead. We don't know any of them well enough to tell whether that sort of thing is common for Noriko or if she was using as a means to keep him off his guard, and we don't know when Chidori started calling him Kocchan or for how long.
Also, Chidori is the first person we see in the OP, and the first person's head we see after the OP is over, and in the latter we see the back of her head, the part that was most prominent in the depiction of girl-on-seesaw.
Definitely good. I liked all the flashback scenes too, as well as the events surrounding the protagonist getting pushed down the stairs. Look at this shit, how fucking gorgeous?
Okada isn't a great scriptwriter. Some of the dialogue in the show was weird and awkward.
However I think the direction in this episode more than made up for it. The characters were all great, and I'm interested in how they will develop.
To me, the characters make the show.
Definitely a colorful and fun cast. I actually don't mind the writing but maybe I'm taking it a little less seriously than most? I like these kinds of screwball sci-fi settings.
Yamada-sensei is best boy.
Anybody done analysis on the flower language in the ED yet? I wouldn't really know, since I'm not a florist.
It's like they got Ikuhara in to direct for 2 minutes.
I fucking loved it.
Also, is it just me or is there literally no Trigger QUALITY here. I don't know how to feel about that.
I'm really glad they decided to give Kobayashi his own show. He feels really distinct from the usual manic Imaishi types to come from Trigger. Almost closer to Ikuhara's style.
Oh, and it's like a shitty free version I guess? I gotcha.
So the time Katsuhiro was fatally wounded was during the flashback.
Right not the anime is in regards to the girl wanting to help him as everyone else was either not caring or doing the bear minimum while he was constantly bullied.
So I'm expecting a lot of whacky hijinks and suffering until they start helping each other.
once someone "dies" they cannot be removed from the system and their pain is not shared. MC was the last alive and he hasn't felt pain because it's probably being taken by blue and whoever the original participants were thus giving her even more motivation to saving him
It feels like a very restraint and serious show, but every so often moments of cartoon comedy blindside you, like when Kocchan was backing away from Noriko.
If it weren't for the distinct artstyle I wouldn't have guessed that this was a Trigger joint.
Did his hair turn white because of the pain
I have no idea what you're trying to say in those first three lines.
I wouldn't say restrained or serious, but I know what you mean I think. Waaay less hyperbolic than something like Gurren Lagann or Kill la Kill. It's still very playful though, like the red guy's ass charge attack or the goofy mascot characters or everything about fairy-chan. It's a silly show for sure. I'll go ahead and compare to Ikuhara again, cause as much as Utena was an "intellectual" masterpiece, it was also fucking goofy as shit. That's kind of the vibe I get, I think?
Yeah, Ikuhara would have had a lot of fun with this.
But he'd put more symbolism in and he's generally better at telling stories without as much expository dialogue.
Okada used to be better at that too. But this and the start of Gundam IBO had it in droves.
So then, what? It was Tenga fantasizing about Kocchon jumping or being pushed? I kind of expected that they would share more than pain, though, which was especially reaffirmed by Noriko when Kocchon asked about his dream sequence.
Yeah, I'll give you that. Though I will say I'm not nearly as big an Okada naysayer as most people watching the show. Still, I'm hoping they get all the exposition out in the first few episodes and the rest is smooth sailing. I'm anticipating enjoying the story, I dunno.
I'd love to know this too.
Oh, me neither.
Okada is generally very entertaining when she writes a show on her own.
The problem with IBO was that it was deluded Okada. She only wrote like 1/4 of it at best.
Hahaha what the fuck is this?
I didn't watch all of IBO (made it to episode 13 I think) but I felt it was outrageously slow. Although I might go back to it, now that it's getting a continuation. The pace is more appropriate for something much longer, which it now is.
This show is bad cause the character suck.
The Choppy animation sucks.
And the premise makes zero sense, even by the shows weird logic.
Also the opening song is very gay. It's like that firefly song song that faggot white kids listened to cause they have shit taste.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytBR7ET_6uU
>The problem with IBO was that it was deluded Okada.
what do you mean by "deluded okada?"
But yeah I agree IBO suffered without her,I really think that she didn't care much about the show or was just slapped on the staff list to bring in some of her fans,The director also said he had no idea how to do a story about war and was unfamiliar with child soldiers so there's that too.
I honestly think the only reason the children turned out this way is because that's what most anime feature as their main characters, but we never really get a good anime featuring them in war situations, and those that do never show us any psychological consequences or try to portray them realisticly which is something I thought IBO would do with the way they were setting up Mika and Orga's realationship
0/10 a little subtlety goes a long way shitposter-kun
I also liked it, no need to be ashamed.
I want to fuck that uppity cunt. She needs a good dicking.
So this isn't the first time they go through the Kizna system?
But Katsuhira also has one in his chest, does that mean he was part of even another Kizna group?
I was really impressed so I made a thingy.
Visually it was great, but god damn if this was not one of the most heavy handed first episodes I have ever seen.
They just assume the viewer is retarded and wont stop stating the themes, or they have no idea how to convey them visually.
I was bothered by some of the exposition, but I didn't think it was too much to do with "stating the themes" as it was with establishing the setting. I agree that it was a little overboard though, definitely. Any specific parts you thought were bad?
It was with the mc mainly. They just did not stop explaining what was wrong with him. That and just clearly defining each character for the audience.
I hoping they did this om purpose just to defy expectations, but who knows.
I feel like Okada thought making it known that they were based off of the seven deadly sins was really important. I wonder if there's story relevance besides the obvious "people from different worlds find commonality through shared experiences" thing.
Right? It's in the architecture, the mascot design and the scars on their arms. Probably other places as well. Really cool, I like when a single symbol is used to unify a whole show. Roses in Utena, for example. As far as symbolism goes it's probably like crosses = connections, intersections? That kinda thing?
>Going straight to finger locking
What triggered me the most was pic related.
It clearly looks and sounds like everyone feels the same amount of pain, but we're supposed to believe it is actually divided evenly... Moreover a single pain back during the industrial revolution took at least three people to make. It involved dividing the pain, feeling it, reparting wounds to the two pieces together, etc... But here comes this fucking ignorant anime and his fantasy technology that makes no sense even though the whole plot relies on it and I just reeeeeEEEEE
> As far as symbolism goes it's probably like crosses = connections, intersections?
yeah this seems to be it,
crossing scars,crossing lives all within a city meant to symbolize that ideal of the unity of humanity through pain
instrumentality end confirmed?
Further evidence: Immediately before the cut to the chopped-up flashback sequence, Chidori is about to drift off into daydream land while in "thingkin of Kocchon" mode.
Also, when we see the kidnappings, we see Chidori on an operating table and one of the freakish mascots moving a scapel to cut her wrist, but we don't see the cut actually happening like we do in the flashback. This could again be to throw us off, if Chidori had already been implanted with the Kiznaiver system to begin with.
>instrumentality end confirmed?
It's sweet that that's actually possible. I'm genuinely excited about seeing where this goes, like there are so many things to do with this premise.
