Sword of Oratoria =/= S2. Sword of Oratoria starts before the main series chronologically.

Sword of Oratoria is darker and has much more action than the main series.

What you see of Ais in the main series is basically only a persona that she projects around civilians. the Loki familia is composed almost entirely of Berserkers, only Finn, Riveria, and Lefiya are exceptions.

Will they have a battle as epic as the minotaur fight? No they won't, cause Aiz is an OP mary sue and the studio isn't gonna bother with good animation when the MC can kill everything offscreen in 1-2 slices.

The action is pretty good, I guess. But I don't think there will be anything as operator as Bell vs the Minotaur in it.

Maybe it'll be even shittier than S1.
>>
>>151562542

>Aiz vs Udaeus

Boring. Minotaur vs Bell was spot on because they were evenly matched, and both of them were desperately using every means at their disposal to live. It was the completion of Bel's overcoming of his own trauma, and worked on both a physical and narrative sense.

Udaeus was a literal overgrown Spartoi who Aiz was hunting for her level up.

>Udaeus was a literal overgrown Spartoi who Aiz was hunting for her level up.
Yeah, but why does she want to level up so desperately that she tries to solo a level 6 floor boss that it took the whole Loki familia to defeat before? That's part of her ongoing internal conflict, you know? Bell has his shit to overcome, but Aiz has her own issues too.

Besides the thing was stronger than her, so it was pretty cool just for the action. I hope they'll animate it properly.

>>
>>151565244

Eh. It still lacks the personal connection Bell and the Minotaur had. It also doesn't have the same desperation to it. The minotaur was just as desperate as Bell to win, whereas Udaeus just kind of acts like a monster.

I don't know, the problem with Aiz and Lefiya is that they have much the same character arc as Bell's (wanting to grow stronger/wanting to match someone). There's differences, but not enough to make it feel truly separate. But his is done much better, particularly as he started genuinely weak, as opposed to the story starting at level 3+.
>>
>>151565573
Sorry but I think you're just biased. Aiz was fighting as desperatly as Bell, if not even more so.

And no, Aiz's character arc isn't the same as Bell's at all. Sure both want to get stronger, but Aiz is conflicted about it. Part of her just want to go on adventures, like Bell, while the other it's a darker, more desperate need to get stronger, which probably has to do with some traumatic event in her past (something related to her mother). The conflict between these two sides inside Aiz is the real main point of her character arc.

I give you that Lefiya's arc is more similar to Bell, but that's about it.

How the fuck is she the main character when her personality is more boring than watching paint dry?
>>
>>151566112
We were seeing Ais from other people's perspective, so she came across as boring.

She has her own character arc that's pretty interesting.
>>
>>151565843

I think you misread what I wrote. Aiz was desperate. The Udaeus wasn't, not in the same way. That minotaur was almost human in it's emotions, which might explain it becoming Asterius.

Fights are made cool by both parties, not just one.

And it's harder to emphasize with that need for strength when Aiz is already in the top 10-20 in Oratario. I mean, yeah, the desire is just as valid, but there's less oomph.
>>
>no cute bell-kun
literally no reason to watch this shit
>>
>>151566112

no idea. Her character arc is pretty shitty and is basically 'muh parents are dead'. The SoL bits would be ok if Lefiya wasn't there and if she wasn't even more boring.

Also, the Loki familia really need to decide if they want to be assholes or decent people.

>>151566441

Well, I've got no idea where she ranks exactly.

She's probably in the top 5, and the only person who could handle her easily is probably Ottar.
>>
>>151566211
>The Udaeus wasn't
It didn't have to. It just had to be an OP motherfucking monster that can give Aiz a run for her money, because the fight is all about Aiz, about why she's doing something so stupid, and why even though she wants to get stronger so much, part of her feels like she's losing something else, a part of herself, as she getsstronger.
>>
>>151566301
?

With the exception of Bete, everyone in the Loki Familia are great people, and even he has his moments.
>>
>base a series around a girl who doesn't even get a third of the fanart

Railgun made some sense, as Mikoto was a genuine ensemble darkhorse.

The only non-protagonist with that kind of popularity is Hestia, and you can't really make a full spin-off based around her since she's always around Bell anyway.
>>
>>151553511
hestia is to the danmachi franchise to what index is to to aru while vanilla ais's comparable is biribiri. tl;dr oratoria (like railgun) is a shitton more fun and interesting than danmachi (index).

Loki familia was one of the top groups, leading the exploration, but that doesn't mean the individual strengh of their members has to be in the top too.

Except they're absolutely bullshitting. On average, a mainline Danmachi novel sells 4-6 times as much as a Sword Oratario spin-off.

As an example, Danmachi volume 10 sold 77,000 normal copies and 24,000 limited edition on it's first week.

Oratario volume 7 sold 17.5k normal and 10 k limited on it's first week.

Danmachi sales also tend to remain decent for much longer.

Yes it delves into SoL a bit more, but most of the time it does advance the plot as a result.

Index has.... bad plot direct half the time. Railgun has a direct story plot and direction. Index tends to get too wrapped up in its own story to get anything done.
>>
>>151567385

>A well-done spin-off can't be more popular than the original

Happens all the time. Sometimes unintentionally. Oratario is not a well-done spin-off and the majority of it's sales are from dedicated fans of the main series.

Use google to actually look up who ends up showing in character polls representing the series and the position they are in. Aiz is always higher up then Hestia.

An ancient mage/alchemist who created a flawed philosopher's stone that made him immortal, and also a Lich.

He's not that great at direct combat, but he has a shitload of magical items that he made over the years to make up for that.

He's also the only wielder of resurrection magic in the entire setting and probably the most skilled healer around.
>>
>>151572726
Either it's not a poll or it's an anime only poll, though even with an anime poll these rankings would make no sense, I think it's just some chibi art I have seen somewhere before. In terms of popularity Ryu is right behind Aiz and Bell. Finn too perhaps.

It's almost like people have different opinions and 4chan is a hive of shitposting.

I like Bell. I think his character is pretty cool most of the time, and more importantly, consistent.

I like Hestia, because I like the clingy jealous girl archetype.

I also like Aiz, but not enough to want to watch a full series based about her. She works best kept distant from the action.
>>
>>151573839

Personally I don't mind who is the MC I liked this universe, like pretty much any high fantasy anime, and I would watch any series set in that universe regardless of who is the main character.

I think the appealing of Danmachi wasn't the characters or the story, but the setting.
>>
>>151569672
But Hestia is the worst part
>>
>>151573937
I am not the one who told him to google poll and I know this pic is not one. This pic is from a Danmachi omake(Days of Goddess IIRC). Even on the wiki you can see it as a pic which just represents some characters. Welf and Mikoto have never been above Ryu in popularity. And a supporting character like Miach even less.
>>
>>151574017

Yeah, and I agreed with him on that. I said it was a nice picture. In fact, I'm pretty sure it was the picture made for the anime's release.

But he's not providing any evidence either, so he can stop pretending his opinion is fact as well until he does.

It depends on what sort of action do you like. If watching a newbie going up the ranks is your thing, then Aiz would definitely not work for you. For those who just wants to see a powerful MC kicking major ass, Aiz does the job just fine.
>>
>>151574011

In the main series, maybe. In Sword Oratoria she's okay. She's on the serious side, sure, but that isn't necessarily boring.

Their biggest complaint about the series was the male MC

Even though the underdog Bell is a lot more interesting than the Mary Stu doll
>>
>>151575160
There's nothing interesting about Bell. He's like any fake underdog harem MC out there, down to the fact that despite being the "underdog" he improves faster than anyone, managing to accomplish in months what took Aiz years to achieve. Underdog or not, he's the most special snow flake in the series.
>>
>>151575325

Still more interesting than Aiz. And that's ultimately what's important in a work like this.
>>
>>151575573
>Still more interesting than Aiz
No really.
>>
>>151575325

You're mistaking a character's traits for what makes them interesting, as opposed to the writing and presentation of those traits.

I mean, take Hei. He's a Ninja with electric powers and Batman's gadgets. He's the only Contractor with no remuneration. Basically every female he interacts with falls in love with him.

But he's still a popular and interesting character.
>>
>>151575063
He should stay out of railgun
>>
>>151575750
>You're mistaking a character's traits for what makes them interesting, as opposed to the writing and presentation of those traits.
I'm not, but what makes a character interesting is not just their personality. It's the whole package that includes their backstory, character arc, presentation and so on.
>>
>>151575836
Railgun wants him in it
>>
>>151575893

And that's always going to be subject to subjectivity.

The fact that Dan Machi has gotten so popular is proof that Bell appeals to a significant number of people.
>>
>no Hestia
>no Lili

dead on arrival
>>
>>151575836
He'd be so lucky.

Railgun is on the doorstep of the point where we'll be seeing Misaka deliberately inserting herself into Touma's adventures. Anyone who thinks Touma should stay out of Railgun should prepare to tear their hair out in frustration.
>>

Might watch it. The PV doesn't have a bad vibe though I'd have to see how gamey it is. Never picked up the main series.
>>
>>151576181
>Bell appeals to a significant number of people.
Sure, but >>151575160's argument that "the underdog Bell is a lot more interesting than the Mary Stu doll" still makes no sense because despite being the so called underdog, Bell's abnormal improvident basically makes him a Gary Stu as well.
>>
>>151576181
Not that guy, but a series can be popular for a lot of reasons that have nothing to do with the MC.
>>
The point's kind of academic anyway. We're going to be seeing a fair amount of Bell in Sword Oratoria anyway if this anime has any fidelity to the source.
>>
>>151576493
If it's a 12 episode series, I don't think we'll see him all that much, actually.

>>151576414

True, but he starts from a lower place to begin with. The idea of starting from a low position and working your way upwards very quickly is a popular power fantasy, since the astonishment generated in the setting by said progress is part of the appeal. It's extremely common, and not bad if the justification for such is consistent. Isekai is a typical example of this.

Basically, people don't just like underdogs. They like to see the underdog win.

>>151576418

True. But the story focuses a lot more on him than is typical of the genre, and the only romance that plays a consistent part is Bell's unrequited love of Aiz, which is also atypical. so it probably plays a bigger role than usual.

>>151575063
That's because like the author said once, Mikoto being powerful makes it harder to write her story without making the antagonist with plot devices, as spills and the like to not be ass kicked by Mikoto.
That's why we got
>AIM Burst can regenerate itself fast
>Accelerator can't be hurt so Mikoto had to be saved
>Mikoto was mind hacked so she had to be saved
>A robot with consciousness who of course is weak against electric powers
And most of the time it's secondary characters taking the spotlight away from Mikoto.

That's why he uses Touma, Shiage, Cripplelerator, Qwenser etc as MCs.
>>
>>151576680
>True, but he starts from a lower place to begin with.
Sure, but he's still as much a Gary Stu as Aiz, if not more, and that's all I was trying to say.

To be fair, the main series is starting to nudge into that, what with Welf's magic swords being strong enough to drive back level 5+ adventurers and Asterius beating back both the amazon sisters at once before tanking a charged Argonaut attack.

I don't remember a single interesting character from the first season. Why do they think that a spinoff about the supporting cast would be any better? I also remember a lot of contrived writing.
