Kono ooki na kikai no namae nan desu ne~
I doubt they will change what happens in the end, I'm guessing they'll probably just try to lead into the movie as smoothly as possible. Also, they've already added the pendant to give a bit more motivation to the Junker's backstory, so maybe it was just that?
Very good. I still don't really understand why they turned the main story into web series and side stories into movie. Should've do the opposite and make a stand-alone from the VN story movie and adapt side stories into web series.
It's simple, really. Lure in casual anime watchers with a short-length web-broadcasted show and make them invested enough in the settings to rake in big bucks at the theaters.
>Nobody laughed again
I don't want to cry with this shit, but I know it will happen
She considers her robotic duties of serving humans and making them happy to be a source of pride and honor for her.
The least you could do is protect her smile.
They're gonna make it out of the city and have half a dozen robot babies, right?
It's been extremely faithful so far and they've managed to capture the VN's atmosphere perfectly. This episode in particular did one of the most important scenes justice, so it's probably safe to say they'll do the (extremely moving) ending good as well.
Yeah, they even show their firstborn in the VN.
Same here, obligatory link then.
Can you save her?
>all the hardware is still present and in perfect working condition
What is this whitewashing bullshit? What the fuck!? Fuck this show.
>just been sitting doing next to nothing for 30+ minutes feeling simultaneously empty and fulfilled after seeing the special presentation animated
The ending is one thing, but shit, I just love grossly optimistic and inspirational shit like that from the bottom of my heart.
The best part of it is knowing that it's all over and that the dream of reaching the stars will never be realized. That humanity went from caves to the moon, that humanity accomplished all that and was on its way to becoming a type 1 civilization, and then it all ended. I imagine it would be as bizarre as watching positive futuristic NASA ads after the cold war turned hot and turned the planet into a nuclear wasteland.
Yeah, this was one great episode.
I agree and it was also nice that
the first half about people dreaming to fly being only white people and Germany with Werner von Barun's rocket.But I would've liked to see more, both from the past and the future. I might recall wrong but doesn't she mention a manned mission to Mars in the VN?
Sticker pack if somebody is too lazy to download them:
Probably they didn't mention it because a lot more was going on on the moon bases
I like the MC.
Wished that he looked a bit more rugged, but his love for booze and thicc women is top-tier.
>that ost when the projection starts
>This was always joked about as never getting an adaption and it finally did, I'm surprised more people on /a/ don't talk about it.
When I found /a/ in 2009 Planetarian was already the example of "the VN that's so old it'll never get an anime." I'm amazed they actually did this, and very happy about it. This is the only anime I've even watched in a couple years.
Used to date a girl who was into both /a/ and astronomy, and we'd put on Gentle Jena while doing star stuff.
The thing with Refrain is that you need to dig LOTS of shit to get to it, like 70% of Little Busters is completety unreadable because of how bad it is, and even then, the actual good part is still flawed, like the end that doesn't make sense, at least Clannad established supernatural elements from the start.
Little Busters should have been half its size and Maeda should've written all of it.
Clannad isn't really better because it's even longer and the ending is still stupid. In the VN I say it's just an extra for completing everything and here's your happy ending. Also the only good route is
FuukoLittle Busters has at least 3 interesting bros and a funny common route and Yuiko who is best girl.
The one bro in clannad gets treated like shit and never gets his due, which I hate.
I just think friendships are more interesting compared to romance.
Obviously things boil down a lot to subjective taste, but I think the amount of bad stuff you mention is exaggerated even for the sake of hyperbole. I'm not going to deny that a lot of stuff like the most of the character routes are pretty garbage (I straight up stopped reading Kud's because I couldn't stomach how bad it was) but part of why Refrain was so good for me is because I adored the core cast of the guys and Rin. I didn't have a problem with basically any part of the common route for that reason and Refrain ultimately focuses mainly on them as well.
I can't disagree with the last statement, though.
>Used to date a girl who was into both /a/ and astronomy, and we'd put on Gentle Jena while doing star stuff.
Yumemi would love to hear that.
>Yumemi will never read you bedtime stories with that kind of passion
>It's getting an official vocal version
As much as I love yukizakurasou, an official vocal version is almost bound to be better. Especially if the original composer helps out with it. Even if it isn't, we still end up with two versions of that amazing song.
Two episodes left and we're already set on moving through the city, I wonder how long the next episode would be, I don't think that they would seperate the escape into two episodes.
There are version with good raw that's not hard-subbed? That's amazing.
Please let them both survive and travel the world together. I want them both to be happy dammit.
Nah, it's a complete mess and not worth your time unless you're really interested in what the new original route is like.
>Romeo wrote the script
He did not, he's only supervising it.
Maybe he just doesn't want his penis to be crush by her moving parts.
My heart is slowly breaking week after week.
As long as you maintain tight tolerances in the apertures and lubricate all moving parts, there is no reason for either party to take damage. Just clean and put the screwdriver away when you're done.
It was part of the novel attached to the premium edition of the first CD release of the VN in 2006. The novel is a collection of sci-fi short stories. It's later re-released as paperback in 2008. And there is a deleted part that adds to the end of the "Hoshi no Hito" story, available on the author's site.
Fuck, man.. I started to cry as soon as the projection started and the Junker saw the Sun for the first time.
It's been ages since I've played the VN as well.
What the hell is wrong with me?
>when the piano part starts playing at pic related
I felt things again.
Is there a ETA on the new ost?
Holy shit that spike. Glad that this will be a profitable venture considering the unlikeliness of the adaptation.
>Gentle Jena starts playing
Man, it's bringing back the tears.
So many great shots this episode and paired with the OST, it was such a good episode.
>tfw electricity runs out and interrupts the presentation
Wait a sec, its real?
I thought it was a cruel April fools joke, did those madmen actually make an anime?
>I thought it was a cruel April fools joke, did those madmen actually make an anime?
Five episodes of anime and one movie due in the fall.
It's real m8. I'm waiting for figures.
>That message in the sequel drama CD saying that humanity has always been and always will be reaching out for the stars, no matter what happens
>That hint that there will always be a shred of hope
Exactly this. Just like I wrote here >>144502465, it's the knowledge that mankind's dreams were smashed to pieces that makes it all so wonderful. I really wish more series had this melancholic depressing feel and theme.
>someone adapts Swan Song
>they use the 'good' ending
I'm honestly not that big a fan of a lot of the later parts of Swan Song but I'll admit the normal ending is pretty phenomenal.
>Shell could be easy to build, the AI itself wouldn't.
I think the point of Planetarian was that for 99% of the VN she wasn't an AI. She was a programmed robot that couldn't think critically without updates from the support center.
>The scene where Yumemi shows her memories to the Junker
>Assume it'll be a generic story where she was mistreated by customers because she quickly became an outdated model
>Everyone loved her just as much as I did
That was what did it for me.
How many tears will I shed when this hits? I wonder if I can manage to read the VN before next episode or if I should just wait till everything airs so I can experience it again later.
>tfw planetarian has been the only jap media so far to successfully make me cry
This adaptation is going to fucking destroy me by the end
Why does a cute planetarium bot need such great legs?
"If you're frightened of dying and... you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth."
tell me straight, does the girl die in the end?
They talk a bit. Junker tries to convince Yumemi to leave the planetarium with him but she remains staunch. So he starts plotting to let her run out of battery so he can take her with him while she's inactive.
Then the fiddler crab happens.
>Didn't read the VN
>Cried like a bitch during the presentation
Maybe I should get this on steam, I didn't watch to read another KEY visual novel after Little Busters, but this one looks nice and isn't 50 hours long.
>I wish I could see what everyone else is seeing in this show. I honestly thought this was just an incredibly boring episode. Every planetarium presentation I've ever been to in real life, even ones at tiny planetariums in suburban areas, was more interesting than the one they showed here. Considering the show is called "Planetarian" I expected the presentation to be impressive in literally ANY way, or to at least have some larger integration with the overall narrative.
>As it stands, I would highly recommend skipping the first 18 minutes of this episode and watching thePlanetes OPinstead, since it is basically the same, and accompanied by better music.
>Then watch the last minute of this episode before the ED when the only actual plot development occurs.
Humanity won't be chained to Earth forever, eventually something will happen that will force us to expand into space. The Earth won't last forever afterall.
It's appearing already? I thought they would save it for the final episode. Now how are they going to extend the trip to two episodes.
The production staff said in their release announcement that they are releasing the show by Web is because planetarian was originally released Web only download when download versions were not common in the early 00s late 90s so they are following the tradition of theach original release to release episodes via Web.
I have the VN, all I will say is be strong.
> It's a story about cute robot girls doing cute things!
> It's a tragic reminder of humanity's lost hopes and dreams.
The last time humans touched the moon was 70 years ago. Armageddon is too good for you assholes.
> It's a tragic reminder of humanity's lost hopes and dreams.
Fuck, I'm actually tearing up watching this episode. That was so good.
I could listen to her babble about stars forever.
70 years ago is pretty short in the big picture, it's just one generation at most.
I'm sure a lot more people would feel sad for crab bot and the roller bots if they look like cute girls and can speak. You're right that they're just continuing to do what they were told by their masters and that they're just trying to defend the city, they probably have names given by the soldiers before the war.
