BetsuTenGai couldn't resist TanHi's attack。。。

>TanHi : Face your death ! I'll avenge aniue with。。。(skill)。。。!
TanHi then uses TanKou's ulti. The attack got parried partially.

>BetsuTenGai (Shou): eh?!

>TanHi : SOKO MADE DA!
TanHi approaches tumbling BetsuTenGai. With whole of her power, she 。。。。. In this alarming moment, BetsuTenGai took the hit with his sword. TanHi 。。。。.
However, from the beginning of this fight, it's all illusion that she's seeing, the man that she fought was actually ShouFuKan.

Thanks for that info, didn't really know what it's actually called but I thought the MCs name sounded pretty similar to what was written in the opening.

The whole story is laid out in the official website. Even the order the allies join the party.

It's a bit too straightforward, but with this pace, they should be fighting the final boss by Episode 10.

hopefully the show won't throw away umbrella dude's setting as a traveler with some urgent issue.

Knowing him, he probably played that dude that beheaded himself in the first episode. When everyone else went 'wut', he was probably forced to reroll into the female necromancer.

This show is so fucking cool. I remember thinking, "what the fuck is this shit?" when I first saw it and the puppets and thought there was no way it could be any good. Then I watched it and had my mind raped by pure awesome.

Is there any more puppet shows that are subbed? Does japan do any or is it mostly a china/taiwan thing?

There really is no difference between the two. In the end, it's all about overpowered MC's and their party taking on equally overpowered BBEG and their minions, and everything just seems to explode all around them.

The finger operates the mouth. The string going down to the left hand operate the eyelids.

Note that the fingers in the left hand moves, but how it does it is still a trade secret.

Nah. It has some QUALITY issues. Major one I notices is that they have problem keeping arm proportions. Either they don't care or fail at fixing it.
>>
>>144572942
Yeah, the torso's frequently seem too close to the ground. There's also the issue of being able to notice a lot of repeated motions, especially with Sho (or whatever his name is. The bearded jerk).

It's quite obviously puppetry, but somehow that fact also makes it seem a lot better than it might otherwise. The production values certainly seem higher than the other clips of older shows I've seen. Aside from maybe the Rock Monster, which is all shitty toku CGI.

She is basically already in a doujin plot. She is homeless, her only protector is dead, and she is seeking aid from complete strangers who are all far more powerful than her. The only reason she hasn't already offered her body to these men is because puppetry can't really do nudity.

As pleb who understands basically no Japanese beyond anime-isms, they seem fine to me.

admit it, this sub is fucking cancer. Leaving all those name/terms just like that is lazy subbing.

the art of subbing has long lost after fansub's downfall, which i doubt you've ever heard about.

The way the leave "Tian Xing Jian" like that.
"Jian" is literally sword, it should be translated to Tian Xing sowrd, or even Celestial WHAT Sword.
"Xuan Gui Zhong" should have descriptive name that suits The Evil Order or whatever.
"Hu Yin Shi" is definitely intolerable. it's just "Guardian of the Seal" literally, it's not some cryptic word like above.

also, i've watched cr's sub thru kissanime, it's just plain shit ignoring word choice, sentence order and some are > outright wrong.

Luckily TAC is apparently doing their own subs, though they seem to be doing something crazy with the framerate. Not that, being a pleb, I know much about that or why.

I know, it's not really good to look at rught , that is probably why pili never did things like this ever again after the in the later season and after 2000's.
The company want the show becom more artistic and higher standard, so they stop doing things like this, .
The female puppet become more and more pretty though.

They censored the Evangelion TV opening when you see Rei, Asuka and Misato's naked silhouettes.

Keep in mind that the censorship is about public stations. Cable TV, which is the main source of television now, is less regulated.

They had the job of guarding it but was not allowed to use it. It makes sense, if the founders were worried one of their descendants might go power hungry and want to use the sword to conquer the world.

It's the other way around. Given the setting, Shoufukan's pragmatic thinking makes less sense.

That's the point. It's not even a new thing. A lot of tragedies around this sort of conception of loyalty to a leader, group, or tradition above all else have that tension between the "honorable" thing and sensible one. Choosing the former over the latter is seen a morally righteous and the torque on which the tragedy spins. It's tragic, because they must choose the honorable action even in the face of certain death. Even if the honorable action is certain death.

It's supposed to be kind of stupid, but one's acceptance of it is largely tempered by cultural mores of what honor and duty should be.

Well, considering how overpowered their descendants were, I doubt any of them were able to foresee a guy that can take out all of the other magic weapon's guardians and then use the power of necromancy to steal this one.

Probably because Japanese dub has actual cast. Original Min-Nan dub is litteraly voiced just by this dude (who voices all male characters) and two women (who voices Tanhi and Ryoumi).

It's a tradition and it's always been done that way, so it's something Taiwanese people are used to.

Something counter to tradition which a lot of people were against, was Tanhi's design, ironically they thought she looked like a doll. Even the chairman of Pili was against it, but Butcher insisted on her design.
>>
>>144590137
>Original Min-Nan dub is litteraly voiced just by this dud
The issue isn't that there is only one male, but that he is the son of the guy who had been doing the voices for years. He was never going to be as good as his far more experienced father.

Literally it's nothing I haven't seen a dozen times before in Kung Fu flicks but because it's Urobuchi instant A+ and here's so more reasons why I think Gen Urobuchi is the most awesome the end. Feels like reading a Grade 4 students book report assignment.

>>144598722

Their new stock of reviewers make the old ones like Chris Beverage, Carlo Santos, Carl Kimlinger etc look downright professional. The female ones are especially awful and might as well be writing blogs as opposed to stuff for a commercial site that likes to bill itself as an authority on things. All of them always felt like they've made up their minds on things based on what the sites sponsors have told them to say about them or because of childish biases but at least some of them could kind of spin it all with half decent prose unlike a Hope Chapman or Nick Creamer. Now it's just kind of transparent and that's apparently okay cause anime and low standards and all.

Also I know /a/ maintains that ANN should never be mentioned around here but I maintain that it's okay as long as it's laughing about what massive sell outs and terrible columnists the staff all are. Zac Bertschy's really scrapping the bottom of the barrel with his current team.
>>
>>144598601
Did that one start airing yet? For being live action shit, it looks like it has a decent budget for once.
>>
>>144599045

I think the female ones think they're writing on their own tumblr. It's all just probably copy pasted from there and Zac approves it because he just doesn't care anymore and can't be seen to look discriminatory against women somehow since he's chosen to run with the whole SJW thing.
>>
>>144598641
I like the part where they took days after the first ep was out to add the show to their encyclopaedia despite reporting its existence for months - and when they finally added it they created a whole new category for 'puppet TV' because there's the risk a TV anime with the exact same title could be confused with it.

Was she the one tasked with writing reviews for Muv Luv Schwarzmarken that was completely and utterly oblivious to the fact that East Germany actually existed and wasn't just something the show made up for an alternate history kind of thing and then got called on it by several readers only to get defensive and have Zac defend her even though he should know better? I'm always amused by the feeling of knowing for a fact that I'm more knowledgeable and experienced in things anime reviewers are trying to write about and could probably do their job a lot better.

>>144599159

Well the thing is the publisher for it is a major ANN site sponsor so no doubt they'll bend over backwards to create a new category for it if asked. The hilarious thing is there's never going to be another show in this category ever again unless Gen Urobuchi does it because that's literally the sole reason anybody gives a shit about this enough to be inclusive with it on this seasons anime lineup. If it didn't have him and some other Japanese writer and team instead nobody would be bending over backwards to praise and accommodate this show because nobody outside of Taiwan would even be watching it instead of almost nobody.

All the ones that gave it 5 stars on the first episode preview thing couldn't even make it out of the first sentence before slobbering about Gen Urobuchi. The ones that didn't give it instant perfect scores didn't even mention him once and were actually almost decently helpful and informative reviews that just covered the expected points without any sort of sensationalism and tabloid column style buzzwords.

I can understand because so many of them are just flat out terrible since anime fans really aren't good at setting aside their bullshit for the 15 minutes or so it'd take to type up a passable, insightful and informative one.

>>144599848

Taiwan does but then that's home base for Pili. They'll always have an audience there. Using Urobuchi and Sawano (again) to sell the show in Japan is a valid strategy but he openly admits that he's just doing this as a personal project and because it's fun for him and that's it and Sawano is just bland as shit at this point with his soundtracks so it looks like it only goes so far.

The only thing that makes this worth while at all are the puppets. Without it, you're left with another subpar anime/manga that's too stupid to even bother with. The puppets make it different, the puppets let you know it's silly and to leave your mind at the door, the puppets are unique to us at least.

The action sequences in the first 2 episodes were pretty awesome. I'd watch it in anime form for the fights if the animation was good.

I just imagine his backstory being something along the lines of him just wanting to go visit his family after all his travels, but then he got dragged into all this.

All his adventures and experience trained his swordsmanship, nothing tragic or grimdark happened, and his home and regular family are just on the other side of the evil big bad's tower.

Not really. The voice acting is the bigger draw. They've really nailed it with the cast. And while the story is a standard wuxia type of story so far, it's decently executed.

Oh yeah. ANN reviews liked to fellate Urobuchi so much. Maybe they're actually Nitroplus shills.

I remember some ANN shitter said Nasu is a misogynist because of how Rin was treated in UBW. But she said she liked Zero, even though female characters were all treated like fucking trash there and Saber got figuratively raped by almost all the major male characters.

>Thunderbolt Fantasy continues to be an exquisitely executed pile of clichés. Besides the puppets, this show doesn't contain a single thing that I haven't already seen 100 times over, but I still marvel as the excellence of its construction.

But then
>He also has a gift for noticing and making use of tropes in stories that many other writers would have never considered. [... ...] This is an excellent point, revealing how Dān Fěi's thoughtless adherence to tradition (which treats the Heaven's Retribution Sword as untouchable) acted against her.
What the shit? Characters adhering to tradition and being called out on it isn't even new. It's not even an wuxia thing, anime has done it too. Way to contradict in the stupidest way ever.

I know ANN reviewers are full of shit but I just can't stop myself after seeing that part.

>>144628079
This question has being in my mind ever since Thunderbolt first started airing.
Did western audience
ever thought that puppet can do all these action fighting seance before seeing this show? what does western audience generally think of puppet show before seeing this?
>>
>>144629598
The puppetry most westerns are familiar with is muppets. Which, incidentally, function much like the puppets here do, being manipulated from below rather than above with strings, Pinocchio style. Obviously, it's nowhere near as actiony or as a refined as the puppetry here.

The most actiony Puppets have ever gotten in the West, to my knowledge anyway, was Team America. And there, the entire thing was explicitly a joke about how silly their terrible puppetry was for action scenes.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQAACsFAOTY

The closest western Puppetry most are probably familiar with is probably the Dark Crystal, done by the same guy who started the Muppets. It's been so long I don't recall how good the puppetry was or what kind. I remember it being pretty good and it was probably done like the muppets, but with higher production values. It was also an adventure movie, and while it had action, it wasn't the kind of heavily martial arts focused affair Thunderbolt Fantasy is.

I'd say this would probably be many western /a/ goers first encounter with a puppet show of this caliber. For most Westerns, puppets are even more kiddy than cartoons, with most the most famous being aimed explicitly at younger children. There is also absolutely no puppet media for adults outside of the family oriented Muppet Show, and one offs like Team America where, again, the "adult action movie done with puppets" is the joke. Or Anomalisa, which was just a modern character drama using puppets, and was stop motion as well.
>>
>>144629598
There's really not many shows using puppets these days, let alone any action shows with puppets. I wouldn't think it would work out if I was just told about it and didn't see it for myself how smooth it can look.

I find it really fascinating how some of their gestures and tics makes them seem more alive and how some of the action can immerse me enough into forgetting it's people controlling them with their hands.
>>
>>144629598
Puppet shows are mostly associated with children shows, and due to their limitation I doubt anyone would have thought they can be capable of complex movement.

Puppetry in the west hasn't evolved or changed much, which is why westerners think it's antiquated. They get around that by not taking the material seriously and just being fun.

Pili evolved puppetry in order to attract a new audience while still treating the material seriously. Which is interesting. It might be the best way to keep culture alive.

Western puppet are actually very cool too just like eastern puppet. I think it's the culture and direction difference . It appears to me that western
puppet are better (and prefer) on making non humen creature like puppet and focus alot on facial expressions but less handsome and pretty while eastern puppetare better(and prefer) on making humen looking doll(puppet) with less facial expressions but many body language and usually more handsome and pretty looking.

There was actually a Taiwanese puppet show like this airing on Toonami at some point. I think it was called Wulin Warriors. I though it looked interesting, but it was cancelled after a few weeks due to poor ratings and complaints.

TBF's puppets look more beautiful in comparison.
>>
>>144629598
>ever thought that puppet can do all these action fighting seance before seeing this show?
I only really expected this level of fight scene choreography from stop motion when dealing with puppets.

>what does western audience generally think of puppet show before seeing this?
I'd assume that most westerners are more familiar with Muppets, Sesame Street, Between the Lions, etc styles of puppet shows. On the other hand People also have seen shows like Thunderbirds and it's derivatives so that's something else to add to the western pile.

>>144636414
I would agree that Western Style puppets seem to lean towards expressive faces. The bodies also tend to be pretty immobile with arms being controlled by sticks from underneath.
Between the Pili shows I've been watching, and the few japanese puppettry example I could find it seems like they lean towards expressive bodies with static faces.

There's probably some overlap here but since Western puppets usually have a whole hand controlling just the mouth, and Eastern puppets dedicate the hand to controlling the arms and head direction is really informs what each style is going to emphasize.

>>144634995
Still amazes me how far we've come.

>There was actually a Taiwanese puppet show like this airing on Toonami at some point. I think it was called Wulin Warriors. I though it looked interesting, but it was cancelled after a few weeks due to poor ratings and complaints.

More like butchering. One of the characters in the 4kids version was constantly made fun of for not speaking. But in the original it was because he had his tongue cut off. As I say, it was Robotech-grade murder of source material.

Madoka and Gargantia aren't one of those Urobuchi original projects. With those works, he gets an offer for a certain type of show and writes the scripts around that. It's not like in TBF where he handles pretty much every aspect of production. He's always on the set, like a director.

It was the same TRPG session, but they didn't adapt the events like they happened. They also genderbent his character. I guess it's why they named the anime Chaos dragon instead of Red dragon.
