It all keeps
Because it's serious shit now.
What are the chances that Salt will kill Mimi when she got all the shards to "liberate" PI?
Gee, two Salts?
This is Yayaka.
She is a closeted homosexual.
>having to monitor a little girl and her "friends" 24/7 even when she's having a pajama party with them
Where do I apply for this job?
New to the threads, who are the KKK you guys are talking about?
Gee, I wonder
Sure, Cocona's into old women too.
The KKK-hoodie-wearing weirdos that harvest the power of lolis for their evil schemes.
>finally started making sense
>it was just a shallow clichefest all along
They shouldn't have changed the comfy atmosphere that made the show the best of the year. Now I fear that the "not even top 3" meme is real.
It may not be top 3 this season but it's definetly AOTY
Consensus on the last thread was "it was one of the better ones". There's always shitters, just enjoy the ride.
Her smile is already protected :)
Every time Salt sees Cocona he has to physically restrain himself from slipping his little salt shaker right into Cocona's tight little cunny just for a chance at reliving the sex he had with Mimi.
Someone out there is calling out my name
And through them, this world's true nature is revealed
There is no time to lose if you want to save them
If you're too afraid of changing the world that surrounds you,
You'll find yourself unable to do anything at all
I want to send this message to put our hearts in sync
You feel like you have no chance if you face it all alone
But remember now, that you're not alone
Open your eyes
And reach out your hand
Feel each other's heartbeats
Flip Flapping! Flip Flapping!
Now our hearts start to resonate!
Flip Flapping! Flip Flapping!
So jump with me into the storm!
When our impedance starts to rise
These miracles will become a kind of light!
So shine on, flip-flappers!
>tfw you didn't pay full attention until a few episodes ago and now you're fucking lost with what's going on
Please kill yourself.
What achievements has loli science made in the last decade?
I want Nyunyu to do something.
There is still Yayaka.
She started to regain them after episode 7. It seems like it was influenced by the number of shards that had been returned to the real world, in other words how close they were getting to Mimi's advent.
Whatever caused Papika to lose her memories and de-age to the point of a teenager again was likely related to whatever incident turned Mimi into a bunch of crystals, so reversing one likely reverses the other.
Yayaka's motivations are the purest.
>Cocona was the first one to call her friend
>suffered all the KKK's machinations just to stay with her best friend
>doesn't choose a school until Cocona does so she can pick the same school
>fought through deadly PIs while she were a shitter just to keep Cocona smiling
>when forced to the edge by her job duties she chose Cocona
Let's see how Papikana can even hope to compete. Yayaka is the only one who actually cares about "Cocona."
She just is.
I hope she gets a happy ending.
Open your eyes sheeple
>implying salt isnt going to fuck cocomimi's brains out next episode
Who wants to bet this loli is final boss?
Just go to jail already.
I have to say, I love when show rip off Eva it just makes even bad shows a bit better for me. Like, it just made me want to rewatch it again now. I'm sitting there, listening to the NEON GENESIS EVANGELION DECADE album, feeling great. Can't wait to rewatch Eva after FF is over and time it so that Third Impact happens on New Year's Eve.
even sailor moon had some suffering, where have you been anon?
Everybody keeps saying that Salt is a bad father. However, isn't the leader of the KKK still Salt dad? Now that's a terrible father, after screwing his son's wife now he's after his daughter.
>Iro-senpai left her for the normies
>grandma was an evil robot, Yayaka finally told her why she was her "friend"
>her mother Mimi was a morose lab experiment
>Her dad is Salt, Papikana used her as some kind of substitute
>she hates everyone now
Being Cocona is suffering.
maybe Nyunyu will be the one to save her oneechan
>salt is literally gendo
>same shit with cocona as was going on with rei most likely i.e. salt is cloning a girl that looks like his wife/love interest for selfish reasons
>almost 80% of the way through the show the antagonistic force's motivations are still nothing more than "we need the macguffins to fire up the doomsday machine"
>mom was phone the whole time basically the same as NGE
>grandma was a plant by the antagonistic force and literally everyone saw it coming but she is not even implied to have done anything the entire series and when the big reveal comes she just dies instantly anyways so who even cares
>throwaway "I was a child experiment everyone in my group except me died" backstory for yayaka that was given 30 seconds to explain
>yayaka continues to work for the KKK so that "maybe she can wish for a world where nobody gets hurt" or whatever the fuck which is not only a laughably cliche reason but also doesn't even makes sense because she's well aware that they are going to use their doomsday machine to do bad things and she also has not shown any intention of undermining their efforts whatsoever
why did they try to have a plot, this show was so much better when it was just purely episodic
No. We're going to have a Rosario + vampire ending and you're going to hate it.
God fucking dammit
I actually don't care how it ends. Find with me.
>when it was just purely episodic
This was never the case holy shit. Remember the fucking SKULL in episode 1. Shit's been moving much faster recently but it was always moving since the start.
>why did they try to have a plot, this show was so much better when it was just purely episodic
Sometimes anime producers just try a little bit too hard, I guess everyone want to become a new Evangelion in their hearts of hearts so they can't help it.
>implying we are not in Pure Illusion at this very moment
Our world has become to crazy not to be PI
and I'm not saying that you don't make a good point. The plot certainly isn't particularly unique but it's not the point of the show. If it ends on a similar note like episode 10 then I'll be a bit let down but we're getting a happy end
I fucking hope. Don't fuck this up Oshiyama
Not taking care of Cocona properly. Why does she need to be such a bumbling softie in a life or death situation like that? Force her to comply and run to safety, deal with drama later. If she's actually 30yo she should have no trouble realizing this.
Never, we are the cat people in the desert waiting for a team of lesbians to get the shard and save our world.
I fear they may never come
Yuyu has the most punchable face
Didn't tell Cocona that Mimi was her mom
Didn't tell Cocona that Salt was her dad
Didn't tell Cocona that she's actually almost 3 times her age
Didn't tell Cocona about whatever event lead her mother to turn into crystals
Didn't explain what kind of danger Cocona was in with the KKK on her ass
Didn't tell Cocona about a safehouse where she could head to if she got split up and encountered trouble.
The first 2 are especially bad considering they shared a moment in episode 4 where Cocona opened her heart and told her that her deepest wish was to meet her parents. Papika, this 30-something year old Papika with all the maturity and worldly experience that entails, somehow didn't feel like it mattered that this girl knew who her parents were.
Fuck Papikana. Worst girl of the year.
I can try.
Signal input of an amplifier.
Signal converters or sample rate converters
XLR is a high-end connector standard for symmetrical signals
Equalization is the process of adjusting the frequency spectrum to match a desired state
Well. well. well.
Just press play.
A type of VIDEO signal, but also used for the building blocks of Hi-Fi systems.
Circuit breaker probably, tangentially related to audio. "breaker breaker" is a phrase used to announce yourself on CB radio.
Your stereo has a button for that, apart from the obvious meaning.
A type of read error in CD drives, and also a problem with digital signal transmission in general.
Gotta store your tunes somewhere, I suppose.
Apart from that:
* Flip Flap's lab is full of radio tubes, which are used in old and high-end amplifiers.
* Papika is subject 45, and Mimi is subject 33 - the two most common RPM speeds for turntables.
* Together they form the Direct Drive, a way to construct turntables without using a belt.
* Salt has a guitar and a keyboard in his room.
* Flip Flapping relies on "impedance", which is the resistance of an AC circuit - an important measure for headphones and speakers.
I will even add, I think that might have made for cleaner plotting. Drop the grandma conspiracy shit and the Truman Syndrome angle, make the interpersonal drama unfold in a quiet, reflective close space and if you really need the Mimi awakening end it with a burst cliffhanger of KKK finding them or even simply Cocona getting mega stressed as Papika reveals stuff and a scene of her dream 'taking over' (like the one they inserted in the middle of the episode, except used with immediate purpose rather than adding nothing)
She had a chance to come clean this episode after regaining her memories and didn't.
You can't use amnesia as an excuse when she concealed these things from Cocona after regaining her memories of them.
Punished Yayaka best Yayaka because
she played Cocona like a fiddle
Yuyu will always be doing the raping. Always.
>Pure Storage is the episode where they finally reveal this anime takes place in the same universe as Lostorage
>regains decades' worth of memories
>personality stays exactly the same
This amused me for some reason
>She had a chance to come clean this episode after regaining her memories and didn't.
Did you just decide to forget the scene where she tried to talk to Cocona and she was asleep. Also she felt conflicted because she didn't want to make her sad.
Wait so what was all this cackling about
Yayaka actually looked attractive this episode. I am not sure if it was the vulnerability and bandages or just the fact they covered her forehead.
>Also she felt conflicted because she didn't want to make her sad.
Horrible excuse and a betrayal of Cocona's trust.
It's that failure to understand or be honest with her "friend" that caused Cocona to reject her help and run off. She played the game just like Yayaka and hurt the person she was trying to protect.
Broken bandaged girls are moe.
Anon you ought to know this.
what the FUCK am i watching
You think we're getting this dialogue but reversed?
moe is not the same as attractive anon, although she is very moe.
Anon you ought to know this.
He's using the google!
so is there any actual chance Yayaka beat the twins when she wasn't even at full HP?
Yeah people in real life aren't hesitant to talk about serious shit like that at all.
Good foreshadowing in the OP.
We even saw the teddybears in Mimi's room.
No. But she got away.
Papika will be stumbling over her words trying to explain everything and not even knowing where to begin. Cocona will try to say something but get cut off by the torrent of emotional release a couple times, and will eventually just interrupt Papika with a loud "KIIIITE YO"
Why didn't Flip Flop just explain it all to Cocona? She probably still would have helped.
>So Cocona, here's the thing. We go into Pure Illusion to gather these Shards of Mimi because we're trying to bring your mom back from the dead. Can you please help us?
What is the problem with just being straight with her?
>She tried talking with Cocona more than once
And when she finally got on her soapbox, she omitted every important detail. Cocona didn't react the way she did because the truth hurt, she reacted that way because it was obviously only a half-truth, and that Papika was still keeping things from her. She didn't trust Cocona enough to be honest and Cocona recognized that. She was just about fucking done with people keeping things from her and not being honest with her, so getting that shit from the one person she trusted most was the straw that broke the camel's back.
There's a good reason that the first thing Cocona did after getting out was run to Grandma.
>What is the problem with just being straight with her?
That sounds ridiculous and she, being portrayed as a regular person that doesn't believe in the magics, would have gone "uh, sure" and backed off slowly. Probably call the police too.
>What is the problem with just being straight with her?

See >>150708200 >>150706293
This is my last reply to you, Cocona. I hope you get off your period next week.
Maybe just come clean
But either way it made me laugh, especially because she was attempting it right after Cocona called her a friend.
Yeah we call him futanon here, but the question is where is the rest of his stuff
I remember he had some sort of Madoka/Symphogay image dump blog. Anyone remember the address? That was some good shit.
I'd been expecting it for weeks and it was still amazing
We got mimi backstory and still no iroha
What is her endgame?
Also kkk being salt dad is fucking obvious
Delusional as fuck.
Cocona rudely interrupted Papika just as she was about to tell her.
I'm not blaming Cocona for being dumb and not listening to Papika's story to the end.
It's just an excuse to delay the reveal.
Just like Papika's amneasia was.
To be fair she really does have a nice plump ass.
>I was supposed to know she was actually a robot
Actually, now I wonder, how many characters are actually robots in disguise? I wouldn't be surprised if Papika was actually an advanced AI robot. It would explain the "amnesia," her lack of vocabulary, her autism with emotions, etc.
She had a chance and she fucking blew it
Her drawings are worlds in pure illusion
Everyone says nyunyu but I bet she is the final boss
Yeah, Cocona had a chance to learn everything if she'd just listened and she fucking blew it.
So pretty much all the imagery from the OP has been explained this episode except for this one here.
Toto and Yuyu playing instruments. Why? That makes it seem like they had normal upbringings even though they were test tube babies.
They played Yayaka and Cocona like a goddamn fiddle
It would've been nice if Papika just yelled at her, told her Mimi was her mom, and that she would explain everything, but first they have to get to safety.
But then they'd only be able to ruin Christmas, instead of Christmas and New Years.
Does it creep anyone else out that Grandmabot talks to herself when nobody is around?
Actually the fact that she's a very realistic human-looking robot is important. It means that even some of the "humans" around her were created to be a part of the facade. I wonder how deep the robot rabbit hole actually goes. Its like that one Jim Carrey movie but with robots.
Don't worry, there's no way a robot can be this squishy.
Suspension of disbelief: shattered
>anime tackles a realistic depiction of alzheimer's and memory loss in a respectful manner
>then pulls magical amnesia plot convenience out of the fucking hat
Jesus christ, am I even watching the same show anymore?
>* Papika is subject 45, and Mimi is subject 33 - the two most common RPM speeds for turntables.
>* Together they form the Direct Drive, a way to construct turntables without using a belt.
Yeah, what >>150708705 said. I've been expecting Grandma to be revealed as a KKK plant for a while now. Then it happened and it surprised the fuck out of me.
And then ate a faceful of magic explosion. That felt nice after experiencing Cocona breaking down.
NO MORE THURSDAYS
I know this is a cancerous post but I don't care.
I am so sick of being disappointed with anime. Just thinking about the events in this episode made me break down in tears considering how unique and whimsical and special this show promised to be. I'm not going to pick up another ongoing anime again until I know for sure I won't be hurt. I'm not even sure if I should drop it or just see how it ends but I legitimately feel like I'll just cause harm to myself if I continue any further. I'm not being ironic or anything. As pathetic as it is, I'm 100% sincere.
Sorry for blog post. I'm really sorry.
I think you've flipped one too many flaps, anon
>There's a female character in this show isn't flatchested
A flip-flop circuit that operates on ternary logic rather than binary logic(-1,0,1 instead of 0,1) is called a flip-flap-flop!
>Cocona/Mimi gets caught. Everyone thought 'oh shit, they're gonna slice open her thigh', but then suddenly all the KKK bows down to her and says 'welcome back, grandmistress'. Turns out she lets herself caught. It's her master plan.
Well, I gave this show 1 (one) more chance to win me back as a viewer, but alas, it has failed to do even that. I am sorry /a/, but I cannot continue to spend my time on this tomfoolery. Good day.
>hurr shows with fantastical elements don't need to be in any way realistic
Yayaka and Papika are going to save Cocona from her evil mother!
Then they will split her 50/50. Yayaka get Cocona, Papika gets Mimi.
Every single time something was revealed, I clapped, and by the end my hands were sore.
This series just got very disturbing. What tubes were they putting in Cocona?
Cocona looked at Mimi's face and didn't realize how Mimi looked like herself?
Oh pray tell, how many other anons have announced their unwillingness to continue watching this tripe? I am dubious whether I am the only one to have made such a ubiquitous declaration.
>Mimi wears a choker
>the episode ends in a way that makes Cocona look like she's hanging from a noose
Mimi committed suicide and came back as a ghost possessing Cocona confirmed.
Cocona/Mimi can't get caught anymore, probably. I am thinking they wanted to kidnap and brainwash Cocona before Mimi was awoken so they could control her, but now they've upset a deity.
I don't think they expected Mimi to manifest a consciousness through a handful of shards and possess her daughter.
The KKK shards stayed safely in their tower and their goal was probably just to hijack Mimi's power and use it to control PI via that machine, so Mimi's daughter going all TETSUO on their ass probably didn't factor into the keikaku.
They just needed Cocona for the shard in her leg.
It looked like they wanted Mimi('s shards). Not sure if they wanted Mimi to be awoken or not though, Robo-grandma was surprised as what was going on but KKK leader looked rapturous.
My guess is they'll try to attack and contain her so they can put her in the tower.
Let's just hope the ending wouldn't be as predictable and disappointing, then.
>shipped lesbians in KLK recieved incest
>now shipping FF lesbians, receiving age gap plot twists
Just let girls have their happy endings already
>>it was just a shallow clichefest all along
How can there still be people tat don't know what the point of this show was?
Well basically now it comes down to Cocomimi with 6 shards vs Asclepius rod with the rest.
I'm betting there's more than 12 shards in total so Asclepius probably has an overwhelming advantage in amorphous power
>They just needed Cocona for the shard in her leg.
Its gotta be more than that. They can bring her into the hospital whenever they want, and they could've just plucked it whenever.
Given that the next episode is Pure Storage, I'm guessing they needed Cocona as vessel for Mimi to fill. Maybe they thought they could use Nyunyu as their vessel, and Cocomi has really fucked up their shit.
Who wouldn't want to sleep naked in a ball bit?
