It doesn’t have to be sexual, but at the same time it doesn’t have to be not sexual either. There’s no reason for the order of the KKK to stop there. If you go with the "everything is the mind of Mimi"-theory, it should pertain to all aspects of her.
Stop sexualizing Papika and Cocona's relationship. Their sex is not erotic.
Time for another 500 posts of 'x was a metaphor for Kokona buying her first dildo.'
I think it would be downright silly to base holistic interpretations of the entire themes and subtext of the show based on a roughly translated summary of the show from ANN, which uses a word that may or may not be a name for a character which has not been named or even appeared in the show yet.
That would be like basing your interpretation of a book on the quotes from reviewers on the back.
>Papika and Cocona hold the keys to open the door. When the two girls meet, their adventures in a different time and different overlapping dimension called "Pure Illusion" begin. Many things in Pure Illusion will stand in the girls' way on their search for the mysterious crystal called the "Shard of Mimi," an item that is said to grant any wish. However, when the girls find themselves in danger, the Shard of Mimi shines, and they are able to transform.
Who the hell is Mimi?
Do you kiss your beautiful childhood friend with that mouth?
>Cocona was discovering her pubic hair for the first time
But she did appear in the show, anon. In the OP and on the boat.
Also consider that they deliberately invoked the optical illusion of young woman/old woman in that shot.
It's more complicated of a metaphor than just X-person visiting Cocona's dreams.
So far we've got "fragments" from FLFL and "amorphous" from the coneheads. Maybe the Mimi comes in when Salt starts actually explaining shit. No one's really said what they're fragments of, yet.
tl note: "mimi" means "ear".
The boat in Cocona's dream represents the inexorable path of sexual development that she finds herself on. She's at the complete mercy of the current in dangerous waters, without a paddle. She's not even in ostensible control of the boat, and has no option but to question the mysterious woman at the bow. The woman, appearing older than Cocona, just smiles and welcomes her into womanhood, knowing that every girl must face these challenges for herself.
Later we see Cocona farther downstream, alone this time, on a larger vessel. Her sexual experience has expanded through her adventures with Papika, she understands that changes are happening and there is no longer any mortal fear of going overboard. However, lost innocence has only further isolated her from the adults in her life, who no longer treat her as a girl, but whom Cocona can not relate her feelings too. Towards the end of this sequence Cocona gazes up at a large tree on the shore, who's trunk has formed something of a cage. For the first time, Cocona is seeing into the hidden urges within all adults and understands that those same feelings are beginning to warp her own trunk.
>those same feelings are beginning to warp her own trunk.
You couldn't have made that more phallic if you tried.
She had permission!
>There are no such things as wrong holes, Papika.
Am I wrong in speculating that PURE ILLUSION is a drug being used by SALT to hook young girls into his child brothel? Papika is a pusher who slips Conona the drug who then are both used by various customers in various ways, as Conona goes on a drug fueled adventure of sexual discovery with her new best friend Papika who keeps her on a tight leash. The BUST was Papikas last partner who died of OD.
The fun thing is that analytical speculation of the sort of "trips to PI are various types of sexual events" is almost impossible to disprove even after the show ends. Plot speculation like >>149218627 is very easy to disprove, it just needs to not happen.
I am ALMOST shocked that they included that in the episode, but they're really not shying away from the imagery at all.
I'm interested in seeing what they think they can get away with in future episodes
I didn't notice that before but goddamn
The river is simply life that you are inevitably moving through without a way to halt other than to crash and drown yourself somewhere along the way.
This boat however is Mimi’s boat. She welcomes a part of her back that a witch had torn away from her to imprison her. A part that forgot it once belonged to Mimi and lives its empty life alone. Papika is the lover who helps this girl through her crisis. She fills that now empty shell more and more with experiences and desires until it’s a living, functioning human again. Only then can Mimi become complete and escape her imprisonment by the evil witch, but not before Cocona and Papika confront her once and for all so that the girl can truly overcome her demon. They have to best her, not let her pit them against each other and fly
INTO THE SKYYY
that tree witch thing in the ed is probably that blonde flower monster from episode 3. those finger looking things on the head look like those tentacles on the head of the blonde, and you can't say that's the other arm at an angle because it looks way too deformed compared to the actual arm in the bottom picture. also it has that pink marking around the left eye like the girl. so i'm sure she'll be coming back eventually
also it's yayaka
Capped for future generations.
You want a trick or treat Papika?
It means twintails will be best character again.
Man, this is the first time I come to one of these threads. I had been enjoying this show as a simple cute girls having cute adventures with no ulterior motives but you guys are starting to ruin it.
I must know more.
never trust a mystical object that promises to grant any wish
I SAID COME IN
DON'T STAND THERE
Would Yayaka stop being such a little shit if Papika started flipping her flaps too?
the whole episode was about masks, both the villagers and the raiders had them, not to mention the harem whose face was covered in wraps. guess who else wore a mask the whole time then revealed herself after it was all over?
it could just be that each pure illusion world is inside the mind of one of the characters. like ep 1 was cocona's and it's cold and empty like her, ep 2 was the rabbit's maybe, and then ep 3 is yayaka's mind because she's dry and pointy
Just like Yayaka.
I wanna annoy her a bit then make her spill spaghetti by calling her really cute.
I... I wrote a song for Cocona.
You are my Cocona
My only Cocona
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You'll never know, dear
How much I love you
Please don't take my Cocona away
I hope she'll like it.
I.. I wrote a song for Papika.
D-Do you like it?
it's about the struggles of an audiophile who is surrounded by plebs who opt for 192kbps
No need, I'm the one that did the greentext and I'm collecting everything of value I see into a text file. I will post it with updates I've seen in-thread or thought of on my own every Thursday.
When I am done and have time I will make it into a pretty picture.
>'murrica calls them rice Krispies
Cripes. they dropped the bombs on the wrong country.
Can Papika fucking stop being cute for a single minute?
Tell me, /a/.
Why did Cocona stop Papika from undressing if she's a lesbian?
Lesbians are possessive and territorial by nature, like cats.
She wasn't just preventing Papika from undressing, but asserting her dominance in controlling Papika's ability to undress and denying the other people in the room access to Papika's undressed body, which she considers her alone.
Had Papika gotten any more of her clothes off, Cocona would have been forced to pee on her in order to stake her territorial claim more clearly.
>Cocona would have been forced to pee on her
>She's really cute
>Made for NTR
Naw, the shards and PI is all related to sound.
The shards of Mimi are the shards of ears.
All of the sound design motifs (Salt, the episode titles) are leading towards the final product, which is actually listening to the sound with your ears. Sound design is being used as a framing metaphor for the production, construction and then experience of something creative, and Mimi is the final step, the experience of the finished product. In the process, you find fragments of its fruition, and in collecting them, actualize that product.
Why don’t you check the credits yourself to find out if it you’re not sure?
Is this Mimi?
>kkk is some kind of medical cult, possibly concerned with immortality
>cyborg army that looks like certain cyborgs from Galaxy Express 999
>brains inside robots
What's up, losers? You still jerking each other off over your little meme anime? I bet you won't ever remember the name of the show by this time next year.
Everything about this show makes me really happy.
Sumire-chan is not for shitposting you fucking faggot
>implying 3Hz didn't purposefully change the street lights
>implying it was an oversight
>fleeing into aphorisms, the last refuge of an adult under siege
Salt confirmed for interdimensional shitposter.
Tell me, Grandma
Why I see her flipping there
Why her puppy eyes still scorch my crotch
I feel her, I see her
The sun caught in her autistic face
Is blazing in me out of all control
All storyboards are already done. Looks like the production was well-organized. Too bad Japan would rather buy clusterfucks like Yuuri.
Afureko scripts. Too bad the cover illustrations are hidden, those are usually cute.
After all is done, re watch in that order to see the real ending.
>she turns out to be in the KKK
I doubt if and when the events between episode 1 and 2 are ever addressed you will actually see what happens. At best it will be implied through words spoken on screen as off screen action if addressed at all.
We're gonna need a midi when you're done. That's pretty awesome.
It's not a MIDI, it's an NSF, friend.
Right here, it's a little too fast because I had the MSX in the wrong display mode.
>anime is related to and centered around sound
>the studio puts massive amount of time and care into production
>studio is named 3hz
Is Flip Flappers suppposed to be studio 3hz flagship anime?
You know, the same way Luluco is Trigger's flagship anime?
>Flip Faggots would consider this to be deep symbolism
Its symbolic because it evokes a desire to have a cute daughteru like Papika who is not for lewds and the only way to get her is to shove my cute phimosis cock deep into another man's wife and the scene is basically conveying the point of view from my cockona as it plunges deep into the rabbit hole
>they're just baiting us at this point
>it will never be canon
IT'S NOT FUCKING FAIR
Because she's the frontline fighter of the group and that requires have as much freedom of movement as possible. She's basically wearing a gymnast outfit with boots and gloves
I want to spread her flaps
What message are they sending with this BD extra?
What are we, as fat otaku men of non-japanese descent, suppose to be feeling at this?
How do you even take screenshots that bad
>lots of official art depicting them in the water/underwater
>Cocona has a recurring dream about a river
>7th night of dreams was about suicide by drowning
What does it mean?
Coconuts committed suicide by drowning
You know who died by drowning?
Will Cocona and Papika develop genuine romantic relationship of the homosexual nature?
I want onscreen kiss between Cockna and Papika.
I think a "kirai ja nai" is the most we'll get
Episode 8 or 9
They'll be forcefully separated and Cocona will have to confirm her feelings before heading off to save Papikana from the coneheads. They'll reunite with a hug and exchanges of daisukis with
You made me realize we're already on episode 4 and episode 5 is airing in just a few days.
The season is going too fast. Why is the season going so fast? I don't want it to end.
