Looks like nips like the best girl.
The MC sure looks like some Korean kpop shit.
Also, Hanako Oku will do the opening song.
Get ready for piano ballad.
This is going to be one hell of a Winter season.
It will be weekly amagami before the autism kicks in at the start of the second arc.
He looks alright
He has two bros with him.
One of the things that made Amamamamamagagabooloo so great was that the MC was actually not a fucking faggot and I didn't actively feel sorry for the girl who hooked up with him.
Here's hoping the same can be said of this lead. The omnibus format usually keeps the protag from being a complete ass so we'll see.
Genetic, how does it work?
I'm actually fine with this. What pisses me off is when they put a cake in there yet she's treated as a joke/has no chance of winning/has no route.
If she's not a cake at all it's fine. I just want there to be happiness.
I hope MC smashes most of the chicks by end of episode 2 or early episode 3 of their arcs.
/a/ would lose their shit
>the perky class idol, voiced by "Iroha Isshiki"
>the childhood friend
>/v/ - Video Games
The greatest semen demon of the season to be sure.
But more importantly, who won the Junichi-bowl?
>But more importantly, who won the Junichib Owl?
All of them, sequentially.
9 or 10 years later irrc
Reminder that it's going to be shit.
>He didn't read the Gunma doujin to see how the game truly ends
You missed out. Your dick missed out.
Has anyone come up with an explanation of whatever that game they are playing is?
I think it is around 9 years later set at the same school. Couple of the cast members are related to previous cast like Ai's little brother being one of the protagonist's friends and Risa's little sister as one of the possible heroines for the second half
if it happens.
>this guy whole twitter
Now that's dedication.
It's obviously splitcour.
Ai's little brother was like 5 or 6 years old in Amagami.
Now he is 15 or 16 and MC's best friend in Seiren.
Wonder if Amagami Sensei shows up.
Hopefully, not, she would be Expired Christmas Cake by now.
He looks more successful.
You can see him hanging around a bunch of girls at 0:07, including not-Haruka.
Do we know what the deal is with the MC? I liked how Junichi had an actual backstory, baggage and motivations as opposed to the usual generic non-eventual like that suddenly has a love interest thrust in it.
These girls look like nothing but trouble
and yet I still want to get involved with them.
Not soon enough. I can't wait for it to start.
The three girls in the OP are the only ones that are getting episodes at the moment. Each girl will get 4 episodes and we may see the other 3 girls in a second cour if it does well.
I hope this artist comes back when Seiren airs.
Is this the great girl wars of /a/ for 2017.
I hope she'll let her hair down often.
Well in the anime, it was framed that she asked Junichi to help her out with activities, but he would get distracted by the other routes and then at the last arc, he decided to help her out.
Waiting for Ruise route will be such a pain in the ass. If it happens at all.
>Series is full of resets
>there are no good casts with nice romance
Is that really too much asked for? I really want a Anime without all these stupid stereotype and with nice romance. I mean I don´t mind stereotypes at all, but I am bored about
>heroin comes in
>Guy falls in love with her
>Old Crush/Childhood friend is in love MC all along
IT is so stupidly boring.
Maya-Sensei should be in this show and we see her married with several children
Alright, watching tomorrow.
That sucks. They should make the MC interesting.
They look better in the winter uniforms for some reason.
>Sakura Ayane playing a teasing JK character type in a romance anime
isn't Yahari supposed to be deep show ? I didn't watch it but this charcter seems to have ulterior motives for approaching the mc like every girl in that show.I wanted a more straightforward romance and youth story like Seiren.
Center: genki "class idol"
Clockwise from top:
-Tits; squeaky voice; stalker's imouto; also, tits
-Gloomy, uptight Morals Committee prez
-Swim team; ojou-sama
-/v/ - Video Games
-Shy, flat childhood friend "who looks like a middle schooler"
>Shino Shimoji as Tōru Miyamae, a "critical upperclassman." She is in class 3-A at Teruhi Higashi High School. She loves video games, and her skill is at the level where she competes in tournaments. She is good with her hands and her hobby is to make original goods. She isn't very good at talking to others, and has a hard time continuing conversations with people who don't share her hobbies.
Amagami LS Chapter 2
S-should I watch and finish Amagami prior to watching this? I was going to do it before Christmas and watched the first episode
(why didn't anyone tell me Shizuka Itou was in it?)but I just kinda lost interest for some reason
Is it doable at all at this point?
Amagami is the greatest love story of all time.
Sounds like good pick.
There's a whole lot of them.
I doubt it. I don't think JP females really had any ability for those kinds of games until late 00's. Best bet would be Tekken or something obscure of a different genre.
>Should I watch and finish Amagami?
I just hope -- and expect -- that they're all as pure as Kaoru.
No. It's pretty popular around here.
There's nothing hidden about it.
It's pretty much a cult classic in Japan.
She's so innocent she doesn't realize how lewd she can be.
If you watch around 4 episodes a day you'll be done just in time. 36 episodes + a few short specials.
I hope the MC will be as good as Junichi.
Haruka is very hit or miss, so her arc might not be the best one to start with.
That's not exactly a compelling argument.
I try not to jump at the bit of every VNwith a cover of highschool girls or I'd have no time to do anything. Be honest here, looking at it it isn't exactly attention grabbing.
I thought it looked like Amagami, sold on that one.
She's a little skinny, but she'll do.
Ice the cake.
I feel like She and Ruise will be the best.
This is why I'm somewhat upset about the first half being the more bland girls while the second half girls seem to be more interesting. I'm sure the first half will still be good, but I wish they split it up a bit better.
I need to start a Seiren folder for this semen demon.
Here's the episode order for 1st cour
Those socks are fucking tight. Look at Hikari's calf.
Please do, she's so lonely and frightened of dying unloved
If they really have the 2 cour as a hostage unless the anime sales are good (I still think this is just a split cour) it makes sense to take the interesting girls as a hostage.
I still think it's just Kadokawa/Enterbrain deliberately trying to fuck over Takayama's project.
Before Kimikiss came out, Takayama Kisai worked as an artist and writer for one of Enterbrain's games True Love Story Summer Days, which was fairly succesful so then they brought him on-board once again for Kimikiss. Another very successful game.
Then came Amagami, THE most successful dating sim of the last decade.
People usually think Takayama Kisai was only the character designer, but he was actually the artist, main scenario writer and supervisor for the whole project.
Basically the majority of Amagami was made by him.
After Enterbrain merged with Kadokawa and after the release of Ebikore+ Amagami he seemed to have some sort of falling out with Enterbrain which caused him to leave.
After he left, Kadokawa/Enterbrain released Photokano, whose PSP + Vita sales were still almost 100k copies less than Amagami (even without taking into account Amagami Vita which came later), the Photokano anime was also a flop, and it only got 5 manga adaptations as opposed to Amagami's 15 manga.
Recolove looks even worse than Photokano, and it's starting to focus on tits and fanservice even more, completely missing what made Kimikiss and Amagami popular.
Clearly Enterbrain's game's popularity took a nosedive after Takayama left and they're buttmad at this, but they can't say no to the money a new Takayama project could bring. Hence Seiren.
Both. Everyone gets a little bit of love.
Damn, Takayama is one hell of an artist. I wonder why there was a falling-out with the relationship with Enterbrain. After the split, I assume that he mostly does artwork commissions before working on Seiren.
She's the poster girl and arguably the main girl.
Because she's the main heroine.
Why do people keep asking what this has to do with Amagami? It's a fucking spiritual successor. That's it. Maybe we'll see umehara in his sushi shop as a cameo or Ai's brother and all that shit. There was no canon winner to Amagami. They all won.
It's actually stated somewhere or should I take it as a fact?
I find it a bit strange, sure she's given the cover but in the anime I didn't see her that much outside her arc. Except her relationship with Ai, which it comes off as standoff ish, I don't know why though.
Featured on the cover for every version of the game. Sings the ending. Has the most number of script files in the VN. Is indexed as "heroine 1" in the VN files. Is in the cover for the VN's soundtrack. Is featured in the anime OPs more prominently than any of the other girls.
Oh, and I forgot there's a part in Ai's arc which looks like a bit a foreshadowing for her arc, where she looks longing for something.
Why did they put almost everything there?
It's strange how Ai's anime arc has a lot of content from the other routes mixed in.
Made for sexual abuse
Her rape porn is too fucking good.
Yes but not on Nico.
I can't into moonrunes but here
>Pure love stories between innocent and lovely girls
So it seems they're mixing it up by having some of the girls from other schools. How would that even work? Amagami has all the girls from the same school to facilitate easier interactions, and Seiren has 3 girls from other schools.
Seiren only has 1 girl from a different school. And one of her friends as a side character.
Said school also happens to be the all-girls school Sae went to before transferring to Kibito in Amagami.
Do you really need a reason?
>yfw this flops and we will never get to see the other girls
>yfw they announce the second cour after the first episode airs
As long as it attracts the core Amagami audience in Japan, I'm certain it will attain a following.
The real metric we should look to is reception. There is an early screening of episode 1 this week, so we'll have some semblance on how it will do. I also think that its official air date of January 5/6 is an advantage as it premieres before the majority of the Winter 2017 lineup starts.
Nips sure like her.
It didn't even air and has the most art.
So do I.
That picture is new isn't it?
When did Sasaki Akira get a twitter account? Or did it come from a different account?
I didn't know he had one. He should really link it on his pixiv account.
Why doesn't this man put all his work on pixiv? I'm going through his website and twitter and he's got all these legitimate variations to his art that he didn't upload.
It's criminal that he's hiding these Hibiki pictures.
A sketch for a book cover. Never colored from what I can see.
She better dress as a tomato at one point.
Are you implying Haruka is mature?
Ayaneru's pretty good though. I don't get the hate.
>that artist's devotion to Hibiki
>Sugita-senpai's devotion to Kaoru
This franchise attracts loyalty.
It's filled with great girls so of course.
This is your nurse for tonight.
>she's the nurse, but I'm the one giving her the injection
What did anon mean by this?
>watch UFC with me at the pub
>watching homoerotic wrestling in public
If you talk about Amagami girls then definetly sex hair.
You tell me.
i have a modest expectation that it would be on par with amagami, if not better, and miles above photokano for simply following the same formula that worked for amagami with 4 per heroine. it took them this long to realize that amagami's 4 episode per heroine formula was the winning ticket, but at least they seem to got it at least (albeit it being split cour). one can only wonder what photokano could be had it receive the same treatment instead of the wasted potential that we got.
i personally preferred takayama's artstyle in amagami compared to the CG in photokano/recolove. its hard to describe, but there's something irresistably soft and pleasing to look at, although i readily concede thats its probably my nostalgia goggles on.
i look forward to purchasing the artbook for this series should it come out, and dump it as i always do in the past
just for you faggots, god damn it has been 6 years ago since i dumped the original artbook where has the time gone by.
