>Next week episode is recap
Actas does it again.
I don't know how to feel for the author. On one hand you have your work being made into an anime, on another there's so many issues.
Wonder what crossed the author and other people behind it when they found out Actas was producing it.
Well, at least we have today's episode to look forward to, right?
>Well, at least we have today's episode to look forward to, right?
>first 2 episodes make me get my bike out of the basement after few years of ignoring it
>oh boy I can't wait to go for a ride
>strong wind and/or rain and cold ass temperature every single day since
>oh well, I guess it will have to wait till spring
>at least I still have the anime to watch to keep me interested, right?
>episode 3 delayed
>episode 5 delayed
Why do I even bother.
Too bad anime is fucking bland and skipped fanservice from manga
>that's a bad thing, somehow
I'm glad the did, actually. I want my bikefu to be pure.
Also we will never get a translation of the manga, so the bland adaptation is the best we will ever get.
>Next week episode is recap
what the fuck is this bi-monthly anime
>[HorribleSubs] Long Riders! - 04 [720p].mkv
>recap of 4 episodes of cute girls doing cute things
In the OP, this is the face Aoi makes after the camera focuses on Ami's ass as she climbs her bike.
We /u/ now?
Guys do I get a Ami's focus bike or Aoi's bike?
I think my old mountain bike isn't cutting it anymore when I went out to bike earlier. Cross bike seems more useful if I use it around the city.
>translated as "Hi, on your break?"
People actually pay for those subs.
>Aoi realises Ami is whoring herself to afford her new bike.jpg
I'm unironically enjoying the show and its comfiness even with all the shit Actas keeps dumping on us.
Maybe Qualidea Code last season made me immune to bad quality memes, or perhaps I'm just masochistic.
I rather enjoy the BDs than suffer trough this.
And Regalia is already borderline QUALITY.
It really is a shame this show will probably flop and we won't get any doujins, since the Aoi-Ami sexual tension is really fucking great.
Loving this character.
>Regalia and Long Riders both falling behind schedule
>Long Riders' animation quality
I've just lost all hope for GuP S2 looking good.
As long as the anime doesn't get cancelled.
>recap of 4 episodes of CGDCT anime
This episode was too fucking good.
>Delayed again next week
God damn it Actas.
I'm glad that the bike anime next season is being made by based J.C Staff
A shame they butchered the manga designs though
Someone tried to fix that.
I think you mean what went so right.
You have shit taste?
It's the only explanation.
Abomination! Outcast! Unclean!
The Shirobako studio was idealized as fuck and nowhere as incompetent.
Actas got really lucky with GuP but apparently they figured they could pull off these shitty delays anytime they wanted.
I wonder if we'll ever even hear from Actas again after this. GuP could have been seen as a one time thing, but after the Regalia fiasco and now Long Riders, I can't see why anyone would ever want to give them work again.
Even Shirobako bullied Actas.
Fang for some kinky cosplaying sex.
Ara Ara for tittyfuck.
Ami for a quick fuck in the back alley after she is done with her work.
Aoi for a slow and gentle sex in a missionary position while holding hands, for the sole purpose of procreation. That includes a leg lock as you cum.
Remember how it got a bit ridiculous at the end? The film is like that for about three quarters, then goes completely off the rails.
Pick up the OVA and then the film, it's something you need to see at least once
I've never seen QUALITY like this in my entire life
Here's a sample. Those 2 white figures in the back are actually main characters.
It wasn't a complete slide show, but there were lots of still shots and QUALITY moments. Pretty much what you saw in few previous episodes.
Blue haired megane betrayed MCs (surprise, surprise) but got beaten by brocon 8man sister. Those 2 adults were actually Unknowns (3dpd being the "true" unknown, the guy just fell for the ayylmao vagina meme and got partially turned into Unknown as well. Hime and Hotaru kill the main ayylmao, while the rest of the cast beat her husbando and blue haired whore. Husbando rescues megane and they fuck off to some 3rd world shithole to live in hiding. Hime asks Hotaru how to make babies. The end.
Did anyone else notice how her pants were a different color in the shot right after this?
They also didn't add -paca to the end of most of Alpaca Cycle girl's lines either.
I'm not too annoyed by extremely liberal translations, but leaving stuff out is just bad. At least liberal or bad localizations of accents and such still get across something. Leaving it out entirely makes people that are less keen on the language not even know what's being left out.
Also, funny enough, even Actas fucked up with translation, possibly. Aoi and Hinako both have an English? menu while Yayoi has a Japanese menu for whatever reason.
Ahaha, that's hilarious.
I feel so bad for Actas.
The BDs will fix it, right?
I'm an idiot. Gomen. My memory remembered "osusume" as "regular".
It's still weird that one of the menus is in English and the other is in Japanese, even if it's just the cover.
>only her pants change colour between shots
It's not all bad, though. This show motivated me to try riding a bike again, but it's impossible with the current weather and winter coming up soon.
It's quite possible I would lose my motivation before spring, so if they manage to drag this show for another 4-5 months, I will at least be able to feel the same motivation to exercise as I do now.
Yeah. I saw people in this thread comparing it to the studio from Girlish Number, but at least they are fucking over some talentless hack who wrote yet another generic isekai harem shit, so I don't really feel bad for him.
In our case though, poor guy just wanted to draw a comfy manga about cute girls riding on bikes. After getting ignored for years, his work finally gets acknowledged by an animation studio, only to get literally raped by Actas. I actually feel bad for him.
>but at least they are fucking over some talentless hack who wrote yet another generic isekai harem shit
Is this manga really any better in that regard? Does it ever deviate from the slice of life formula or make itself stand out in any way?
Author's fine, by this point he's already repressed the memory that he got an anime in the first place.
I believe that Studio Actas just bit off more than they could chew this year when they decided to do more shows that their small studio could handle. I also think that Long Riders! got the short end of the stick when it comes to priorities since I think all of their priorities are now concentrated on finishing Regalia and they are also doing Girls und Panzer Final Chapter on the sidelines. They really should take on one project at a time after this.
Well, not many SoL shows with all teen female cast actually make their cast do anything other than put them in a room and make them throw jokes at each other.
Here after they get through the process of introducing main cast and getting MC her road bike, they basically keep them on the road all the time, with barely any chapters happening at school / home.
Also the author is pretty good at drawing, especially the outdoor areas they are so frequently at.
I think Regalia still look good compared to Long Riders!
It still look pretty good despite the delays. I can't say for Long Riders though. The art is pretty inconsistent.
Actas is most likely going to die soon, or at the very least not ever going to be trusted again to make anything except inbetweens for other studios.
No way can their reputation and their finances hold up after all their recent blunders, unless all the anime producers are extremely good friends with them.
Of course Regalia looks good. They were literally forced to rework on the episodes that the producer Infinite didn't like at all, and were even given an additional month to work on it.
i wonder who is behind this alpaca.
>when you realize your childhood friend is prostituting herself for bike money
>Yayoi is a fucking newbie VA.
and she's cute too.
This episode was probably the best one, Because it had good comedy moments in it instead it being a fucking Bike educational show.
>the Nao Touyama character ends up being the slut of the group
>tfw the weather here is so shit I can't go on a ride
Ignore him. It's doesn't have amazing animation or anything, but the people claiming it's a quality fest are just retards who can't tell a show having a slightly more stylistic art style apart from bad animation.
>a fang hits you while wearing the china dress
Another fetish I have to add on my list of pleasures I will never experience.
But she is the pink haired lesbian rapist.
wew, cute breasts and belly
This is the first time I've watched an Actas show.
Now I see what all the fuss is about.
WTF is wrong with this studio? Looks like five Koreans working in a half a windowless closet animated this.
How did someone think this was acceptable? Don't they have any pride?
Meanwhile at Actas
>people on a board dedicated to outdoor transportation have a different mindset when it comes to outdoor exercises than people on a board dedicated to chinese cartoons
Good job anon, you made a huge discovery.
>hey why people who use bikes on a daily basis don't complain it's too cold to ride a bike
>hey why people who want to ride a bike just because cute 2d girls look like they are having fun on theirs get easily discouraged from actually going outside?
Are you really asking those questions?
You can't be serious. Anons from /n/ barely watch any anime, so they don't give a fuck about the animation quality, since they are just casual watchers. That's like posting some high-end pro mountain bike specs on /a/ and then proceed to get surprised why no one gets mad that the X part is pretty shitty, or that you could replace Y with Z to improve the performance.
Also, while it is true a few anons did complain they don't want to ride a bike in this cold weather, most responses call them out for being a pussy and encouraging them to go out there and ride.
>i got upset after going to a board of non-bike enthusiasts and read about them not knowing anything about cycling while complaining about the animation
>i got upset after going to a board of non-anime enthusiasts and read about them not knowing anything about animation while praising the act of riding a bike
>that maid Ami
>all that cute QUALITY
I did cleaned up my 90's mountain bike at the start of this show and have actually been out riding a few times per week. I managed to go about 45 miles today to prepare for watching the episode. It's the most fun I've had since getting altitude sickness trying to be a mountain loli. It is rare when I can emulate cute girls without the need for friends, so I need to take advantage of it.
Am I seeing things or is the amount of studio-related shitposting now higher than ever? I know that people have always made fun of QUALITY but nowadays you get a fuckton of people who seem to only watch anime for the animation instead of because they like it, and people who think that studios are the only important thing in anime and all shows they animate should look the same.
I think I'll just blame the fact that there's a KyoAni show airing this season and how it attracted the usual amounts of studiofags.
i liek bykes
I don't really mind the QUALITY, the show is comfy and I'm having fun while being motivated to dust off my old bike.
What does trigger me though, are the delays. Put as many stillframes as you need Actas, hell I don't even care about that retarded CGI walk, but when they delay 2 out of the first 5 episodes, you gotta admit something is wrong.
I know, I'm one of those people. I really do want to get back to it but I keep forgetting. That said, even before the delay the threads were pretty dead, especially for an original anime with a full girls cast. From the preorder numbers it doesn't seem like Japan was that much different.
I wouldn't call this QUALITY per se but I love those long distance low detail shots.
>Still mixing up peddling and pedaling.
So, are these "professional" subbers English speakers who know a bit of Japanese, or Japanese speakers that know a bit of English?
The way things keep getting fucked up, it could go either way, but I'm leaning towards people who speak neither Japanese or English as their first language. That would explain a lot.
Alright. So what have we learned this week, /a/?
As two other anons mentioned, the menu thing wasn't an actual error. Just me being dumb and forgetting what osusume means. At least, not as big an error as I was making it out to be anyway.
The -paca being left out of the translation is a big mistake though, to me at least. Kind of upsetting, really.
Hinako is best girl as usual.
Same here, and I love those little QUALITY faces that tend to happen everywhere as well. People should be less uptight about lower case quality.
Passion is more important than money, despite not feeding you.
I want to suck that fang.
That every week I'm reminded that I want to get a new bike but winter is around the corner.
You better not be bullying the perfection of a fang. Or two.
Japs don't believe in orthodontics
QUALITY is like some sort of ultra casual filter. If you can't enjoy a show just because it started looking off at some point, then you never liked it anyway and was most likely only watching it for some other reason in particular.
Do you want to die?
I'm hyped to see Ami's bike, hopefully she got some leftovers to gear up some more and we get to see her nerding with it.
Just look at that fucking fang.
Confirmed for #1 enkou girl in 2017 after Ako.
Not sure if sarcasm because many bicyclist have pulled in front of cars and even me on my motorcycle. You have to stay alert with the many idiots staring at their phones. Seen people with ear buds inside their vehicles and heading into a round a bout with their face buried in a tablet.
It's truly amazing how actas managed to not completely mangle GUP even with the delay of the last 2 episodes, but it's getting progressively worse every series they do.
Like why would anyone sign a contract with actas now?
The only reason GuP didn't get fucked is because Mizushima (director and GuP Project committee member) refused to air the final two episode until the were perfect.
If Actas had been in charge they likely would've let the them air in all their QUALITY glory.
She's part of the main cast, don't worry. I hope you aren't too allergic to QUALITY though because this show doesn't have the biggest budget in the world.
I WANT THE BLUSHING OPTION!
Regalia got delayed for like 2months
Long Bikes already got 2weeks delay so far and it is didn't even half the eps yet.
It is Actas, delay is part of the package. They are like freelance hobbyist animators that give no fuck and only work when they want to.
Like anon said >>149457302
Regalia and riders got delays but their quality is still utter shit, and I don't think this upcoming delay for riders will improve the quality anymore.
The best part is that it means she's guaranteed to give you a cute, fanged daughteru.
Everyone is gay for Hinako.
>the darkness of my darkness in the dark
>incompetent sound direction
Let's face it, the only people who liked it were /m/echafags starved for 2D animation and /u/fags willing to eat up anything so long as it has implied lesbians in it. Everything else about it screamed below average seasonal time killer.
There SnM subs lead me to believe they're English speakers who know just enough Japanese to trick an employer who doesn't speak Japanese at all into thinking they know how to speak Japanese.
Also, you use "nor" when following "neither."
What would you do with this clumsy waitress?
I want to be this clumsy waitress and have a hot boyfriend (female) to look out for me.
A better question is why did the jannies just mass delete a lot of images? Are they secretly big fans of the anime and won't let anyone tarnish it's good name?
Embarrassing. I hope you're drunk enough to not remember this later, otherwise you're going to feel like a massive newfag when you wake up.
That was me. The same guy who fucked up with linking to /wsg/. I noticed that all my stitches except one were messed up at certain spots so I deleted them.
Well, I came.
Her ara ara game is strong. I want to hear it right after I unload in her womb.
