Ep 1: 1d 4h 52m
I don't know what it is, but something about Asuka makes me want to buttfuck her senseless
Last year Hibike and Yahari were the most active 'generals' during the season they were both airing. Yahari had longer legs because it lends itself to waifufaggotry and shipping, more than Hibike.
I only hope they don't rush the second novel because i need my Mizore and Yuuko fix. But seeing how fast pace the first 3 episodes are i kinda doubt we will only be adapting the second novel.
How much Mizore and Yuuko do we get in the 3rd novel?
Did you expect anything else from an autistic, borderline yandere character?
I know KyoAni has a hard-on for mature women, and dislikes small girls, but I hope they won't fuck up this season, and give enough time for Yuuko's story, not make Asuka hog screentime for that too.
Unfortunately, the PV says my worries will come true
>I know KyoAni has a hard-on for mature women, and dislikes small girls
KyoAni love small girls AND milf, because
1) KyoAni largely consists of nearing expiration date milfs thus they like to self insert in anime
2) Their motherly instincts make them threat small girls as Daugtherus
>Their motherly instincts make them threat small girls as Daugtherus
They are jealous of anyone young, therefore they don't ever give much focus to small girls much less lolis, especially ever since they decided seinen otaku is not the best audience to pander to.
Still almost all the fanservice goes to mature girls or huge boobed ones, whereas lolis get nothing.
Amagi came closest, but even the bikini scenes she always covered her crotch areas, didn't have mutliple closeups, and her bath scenes were cut out.
>I would hardly call it "salvaged"
He turned complete wreck of a story, into at least emotinally binding and impactful character story. As much of KnK plot remained nonsense, the story of story of Mirai and MCs suffering and affection trully did work and was resolved wonderfully.
I wouldn't say the show was the best directed since Hyouka, that'dd be Hibike, but the movie improved as much as it could.
>better characterization(stupid gags toned down, mirai losing her memory helped)
>better comedy(proper timing and space)
>better digital processing(action not obscured by effects)
>more focused plot(not a disjointed mess like the TV series)
>dark parts aren't sanitized(gore and body horror)
You are the one that sounds mad defending something that nobody gives a flying fuck about though.
Just don't be surprised when people laugh at you when you mention it as a positive example.
don't bully Mirai!
Know whats the difference between us? I am not suffering of autism - i am "defending" it because i liked it, despite the flaws and not a bit interested in making you like it too.
You however, are agitated over the show you apparently dont like and want desperately make otheres to hate it too. Huh?
It would be true, if I just started going on about it in its own thread, or just mentioned it out of nowhere to shitpost about it.
However I replied to you being a silly goose by digging it up as an example for something good, which facts and solid numbers alone could show you isn't true.
Why're her legs so short and spergy looking?
What the fuck is wrong with Kumiko and Reina?
Why the fuck they have some strange moment when they start confessing their love for each other in an overdramatic way, saying they will be forever together and stuff like this just to go back back being normal schoolgirls barely talking with each other a moment later
I don't think they will rush anything. They just don't expand the story out like the first season. Everything in the book will be there.
Yuuko also have some good roles in vol.3 and vol.4.
>I know KyoAni has a hard-on for mature women, and dislikes small girls
Fuck no, on the contrary Kyoany is the perfect example of the Japs shitty tendency to hate everything above 18 years old. All of their shows are about fucking schoolgirls.
>that Reina brain freeze
Tomorrow's going to be 50 pounds of cute in a 20 pound bag.
The world couldn't handle all that cute.
>yurifags hate her because she's straight
I like her a lot, actually.
And while I can only speak for myself, I think a lot of other yurifags like her because they believe she keeps Shoe away from Kumiko. If anything, I'd wager some don't like her because of her conversation with Kumiko in episode 9 (which of course ended up being prophetic in the novels).
>name me a single post k-on kyoani show that doesn't focus on schoolgirls
Are you trolling or just really new? I can't tell.
I'm not fucking shitposting, some idiot in this thread said that kyoani loves older women, now I want him to prove his claim. The majority of kyoani shows are set in an highschool and even those where the focus is not school life (like Amagi) have the main characters that are schoolgirls/boys.
>hasn't been licensed for stream yet
For any other college bros out there, how big are they on torrenting? They seemed to play it up a whole lot, telling us not to do it.
There's no way in hell I'm going to watch this show on some crappy service like kissanime though, that just isn't happening.
Even if they are schoolgirls, they aren't small girls.
If there are, they don't ever get focus, last time one did was K-On.
Since then KyoAni reaally showed their true color, and that means no love for small girl, only mature girls or big breasted ones.
Did you watch the OAD that came out for Phantom World? Guess who didn't get any screentime and fanservice, hint: it's the loli.
But the Kyoani women are all small and cute
Cause they have absolute no idea what it even is, they're just giving generalized non-commital meme reactions hoping somebody gets fooled and thinks they're cool and clever or something. Notice nobody is saying "Holy Shit!" followed by "this must mean *insert context here*". Then we're getting more of the generalized stock shitposting like these geniuses aimed at people not even saying things that warrant it because I guess it's time to start some shit over nothing like always with /a/?
Sad fucking fake anime fan people.
Don't forget the stupid countdown shit people are trying to do which will inevitably be followed by generic "ANIME'S SAVIOR IS BACK BABY" and the most mind numbing and predictable reaction gif shitposts once there are screenshots and gifs of the first episode. Might as well just do the first episode reaction thread now with how obviously pre-planned and formulaic it's all going to be.
It's almost sad in some ways how fast the whole Kyoani fandom thing degraded. I mean I never saw what most people did in them but there was legitimate passion for the studio and effort they put in on animation work. Now it's just all fake and probably the shitpostiest fandom out there forever at each other and random fanbase of the seasons throats. I miss when people could just enjoy shit without always trying to start it.
It's like clockwork too isn't it. It's definitely a bit that people feel they absolutely half to do along with the idiots that pretend to get triggered in femdom threads or really any time a fetish comes up. Like why do you even go into a thread if you claim to hate something, are you retarded or just being that fucking obvious about your shitposting. It's like if people want to shitpost there's nothing you can really do that won't be a touch off point for it.
Anyway people are doing the whole raging pissed off thing again and just having the dumbest possible non-discussions as a lead up to the second season. Convince me you actually give a damn about this show and it brings any sort of joy to your life /a/ because I'm sure as fuck not seeing it at all.
Last time I checked frothing at the mouth anger and wanting to murder each other wasn't how a legitimate fanbase anticipated a show but hey maybe I'm just behind the times or something and that's how it goes down in 2016.
I just finished rewatching S1 in preparation and I fell in love with Reina all over again. She is honestly amazing.
Also Ribbon-chan a shit.
This show is so Lantis'ed up it has the same OP theme song artist as Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans ED and the core cast Kitauji Quartet just seems to be handpicked from their catalog of idols. TRUE mainly does high energy pump up songs for mecha stuff which makes her a weird arbitrary choice for this but they're clearly trying to push her of late so here we are.
Can we tell band stories?
>that kid in percussion who just plays cards behind the seats all class
Hopefully we won't see a lot of this dumb bitch
>that bitch who steals the first seat because she was voted in on popularity, not skill
Let me delude myself...thank you
He is going to win the kumiko bowl offscreen, because that is not even S2 material yet
>all those fucking faggot freshman percussionists who would do nothing and just sit in the back while everyone else is putting effort into the class
I fucking hate those slackers, why were they even in the class?
something this cute cant be a villain

>mixing worst girl with cute fluffy cat
Seriously who the hell do these people hire as VAs?
This one line alone was so well delivered it genuinely made me tear up
I should sleep early so I can catch the livestream
Mamiko has her own arc in the third novel that involves
her quitting college and becoming a hikkikomori. The arc ends with Kumiko and Mamiko airing their differences with eachother.. You can kind of see it near the end of season 1, she actually goes to college in Tokyo but she's at home way too often.
Threadly reminder that Natsuki is bestsuki
I fucking missed these threads.
14 hours to go, post your favorite girl
>Also, since people haven't read the novels, they don't know that the short where Kumiko accepts Shuichi's feelings is the final short in the collection of shorts and is the one that feels "off" compared to Takeda's other writings. She's admitted that editors forced her to change the end of the first novel (North Uji was originally set to win "dud gold" for Kumiko to feel the way Reina felt in middle school before they changed it to move forward to Kansai), so I wouldn't be surprised if the editors forced her to make that decision/story plot. Of course, that's longer and more complicated than "KYOANI BETRAYED US!" so I don't expect it to take hold.
Fuck hard mode, Kumiko for life.
What level is this?
Haruka is my favorite
I'm a few weeks into a basic Japanese class and have seen the show fairly recently and I can understand it good enough.
Mostly it's off memory, like 'Oh sensei's roasting his students now', or 'reina talking about kumiko' etc.
If you were autistic enough you could sub the movie just copying off the TV show pretty easily.
>If you were autistic enough you could sub the movie just copying off the TV show pretty easily
Sounds great. FFF haven't finished their subs, are there any other fansubs I should use or should I just go with HS?
>just need to go to sleep one more time before Hibike is back
Horriblesubs is literally Crunchyroll. I've seen episodes of their shit with literally the Crunchyroll brand logo in the beginning, if you want to act like you're superior for watching the exact same thing, go ahead. Now if you want to criticize Crunchyroll for say, not fucking picking up season 2 yet, I'll happily agree with you.
There's a new scene with the blue haired chick, but it's really basic japanese.
Anon, go review your post again and wonder why I told you to lurk more.
She got her ova, idgaf-
Kumiko is great too
I've been here for 7 years, but you won't believe that and just tell me to lurk more anyways. I see nothing wrong with my post other than the fact that it's now triggering autists, ruining this Hibike thread.
right click the video and put it on no subs
you got me, I don't have a clue about what you're talking about. I'm in the middle of the movie, laundry, and an argument about anime fansubs so just tell me what I did wrong so I can go on with my life.
The baritone sax is such an unattractive instrument
You're damn right.
tfw no Haruka
best friendto cover Moon Hoochwith
>Horriblesubs is literally Crunchyroll
>watching the exact same thing
Well it's hard to get through those layers of irony but with that chihaya image it's assumed that watching CR directly and dl/ing HS can result in a differing watching experience.
Sure it's the same files, but on CR you'll be forcefed ugly bitstarved files (that you paid for) whereas on HS you can use lots of scripts and filters to improve it.
I've used a couple of debanding scripts on mpv and it looks far better than without it, all the gradients are no longer noticeable, the lines look sharper and the colors are better.
Didn't he also direct, or at least have a major involvement, in these shows?
The first few frames always starts with these vibrating letters, not to mention that he also puts those spinning chibi versions of characters, like the kumiko and ruru in the TV version.
>Son, you're always alone on your room so this is who we've arranged you to marry with
>we're already husband and wife, anon
>don't be shy around me
Because they're cute.
Won't be long before they tell him to jump off the cliff rather than be pushed
There's no need to be so upset.
Low-energy troll and high-strung clingy girl
that just makes the first episode super long!
too bad we'll still have to wait a few episodes before we get some serious Ribbon
If I never have to see this stupid fat face ever again it will be too soon
Alright. I guess I'll be the one to say it. Midori and Hazuki are two useless, annoying forced characters whose existence only serves to hog merchandise and artwork from actually good girls.
Midori figures out Reina is in love with Taki
What the fuck are you talking about? The movie was so much worse than the show. It just tripled the density of melodrama while ditching all of the measured pacing and beautiful atmosphere.
She truly is, beyond any doubt, autistic.
It was 1d 4h 52m 21 hours ago.
So roughly 8 hours until the episode airs? Are you mentally prepared for it, /a/?
You're not going to watch it live and pretend you know what's going on like the rest of us? That's the best part about these threads.
No, that is the worst part and I make it a point to avoid threads until subs are out and I've seen the show.
I hate spoilers, spoilerfags, baseless shitposting and secret clubs like neetball so, no, I will not be watching it live. Sorry.
I need help filling my Kumiko folder.
Post them faggots
"So I put the mayonnaise into the egg."
Here you lazy bum.
I wonder if they unintentionally made her smaller. She really looks like some lost little kid
>Thursdays at 00:00 (JST)
Why would you air a show at midnight
