Why is the last episode called Pure Audio again?
Because the end result of all the audio equipment listed in the previous episode titles, and the result of overcoming the audio problems listed in the titles of some of the recent drama episode, is pure audio.
I bet none of you autists noticed this bullshit.
edited it to sync with each other
No, I posted it, and I meant the skirt shadow. It completely disappears after a single frame.

Will it break 1500?
Wait, is there a redux version of Flip Flappers? Just started watching the first episode based on this thread and it is p neat so far.
But should I be watching the... nu nu FliFla?
>Wait, is there a redux version of Flip Flappers?
There is only one FliFla. Now go watch it so it can haunt your mind forever with its awesome
I hope I was not the only one that speculated on a time-loop ending when he said this.
I love how they addressed each shitty copout ending in turn with a sort of meta-awareness

It was like they decided to give the finger to every stupid ending that wasn't this wonderful little thing right here.
Why did they fuck up so bad?
Are you really implying you don't want to fuck this cat?
I am telling you an actual fact. the BD has never ranked any higher than it is right now. People who were waiting for the end to see if they would buy or not were obviously satisfied.
Great episode. Loved the ending, easily 10/10 show for me.
>that subtle cheek nuzzling
Perfect ending to the show. AOTY for sure, nothing comes even close.

Mimi did nothing wrong.
So what's some stuff you wanted to happen that never happened?
What's your honest rating of episode 13 compared to the series as a whole?
For me, ep 13 was a 6/10, the series was 8/10 altogether
I nearly jumped out of my chair when she said that she knew the words. I didn't dare hope but then she actually fucking said them.
Man this was a great ending. It hit literally every sweetspot
>Mimi engineered PPK to protect her daughteru
>She's responsible for her getting the gay
Was Mimi a good mother?
Yayaka and Cocona getting resolution, seeing the results of Cocona's change in her daily life, NyuNyu actually serving a purpose, and a PapiCoco kissu.
Half of those things could be fixed with some sort of epilogue content, though.
>Yayaka and Cocona getting resolution
There's your resolution
I'm still laughing
Pops returning at some point during the Pure Illusion shenanigans.
A kiss would have been nice but they've already confessed their deep love for each other so I can't complain.
A lot of loose ends, like Nyunyu and the twins, being tied up.
A Kissu is honestly the only thing missing. Or a bit more of an epilogue after escaping PI, but I know they had Time restraints.
Episode 13 was like an 8.5/10 for me.
The series as a whole was greater than the sum of its parts making it 10/10 overall for me. If I was just to average the scores I would give each episode individually, it would be like a 9.5/10.
I feel like 90% of the issues with the show could have been fixed just by making it 14 or 15 episodes long, and spreading that final episode 12 and 13 arc across more episodes, and giving more time for certain scenes, nice fights, and a meaty epilogue.
Evil Mimi flip flapping was the highest point of this episode.
This is just my opinion, but I love that she was pretty much completely useless. I'm fully satisfied with her but I agree the twins should've had some kind of epilogue type deal.
Pops reappearance and more Yuyu and Toto
I don't really mind no kissu but I do miss Pops.
>A kiss would have been nice but they've already confessed their deep love for each other so I can't complain.
This. People should wish for more resolution for the side characters and decrease the Yayaka bullying because jesus christ:
That was the best surprise moment, totally didn't see it coming.
Best overall moment though for me was a tie between reunion at the pipe and the hug after dual dai dai daisuke.
Jesus Christ this episode was pure bleach for Yayakafags
Yeah it was a great resolution showing how happy she was that others had found their own happiness together at the expense of hers, while she remained pathetic and alone despite all the work she had done and everything she had sacrificed for the one she cared about
Yayaka should have drank bleach a long time ago
I think it was just right.
Kekkai Sensen shows what happens when you try to stretch a finale into a double-length special. I'd rather have it be a little rushed than a lot of padding.
When you love someone and they don't love you eventually you reach a point where you are no longer angry, instead you will find happiness in knowing the person you love has found love. Now this does not happen overnight but it is clearly what has happened to Yayaka.
She know she can move on with her life and is glad that Cocona is happy. Its what a healthy person is supposed to feel in the end
>no ankle bracelet
What was the point of Nyu?
What did Salt accomplish by going to PI?
Why didn't Cocona let Yayaka transform when Mimi did?
Why didn't they give Yayaka and Cocona a forgiveness make-up scene?
Why did flying into a black hole kill Dark Queen Mimi?
Did they really make Cocona's final piece of development be doing the same thing she's been doing since the first fucking episode?
I don't think I want to see Cocona or Papika suffer through the nightmare that is reality.
Though it would have been doubly cathartic when Papika inevitably swoops in to save Cocona from the monotony.
But I don't earn a million yen per month. I'm just poor Gaijin-kun.
>Cocona abandons her fertility symbol (rabbit) after fully embracing her homosexual love for Papika
>Yayaka, rejected by the girl she loves, inherits that fertility symbol instead after accepting reality and moving on.
So this whole ordeal turned Yayaka straight, right?
I fail to remember the last time a character got BTFO that badly.
Yayaka was badass most of the anime and even got her own transformation.
Yayakafags have no reason to be sad, she was never going to win Cocona in the first place, she betrayed her in the past.
Not the best conclusion but at least they remembered that Iro exists.
The scene shows that she was clearly never fucked and was still painting even if she threw out a few of her older paintings (which is perfectly understandable considering she was probably in a pretty shitty place when she made them given her initial reaction to the idea of wearing nail polish)
Her wearing the nail polish and painting shows that she grew as a character and presumably is still socializing more while continuing to paint.
Thank you 3hz. Thank you so much.
It was foreshadowed since the very beginning
Cocona literally perverted the original motherly love Papika had for her to fit her sick fetishes
>What was the point of Nyu?
To be pointless. It's a joke.
>What did Salt accomplish by going to PI?
Confront Mimi, buy everyone time, maybe figure something out.
>Why didn't Cocona let Yayaka transform when Mimi did?
Yayaka can only Henshin with fragments and those don't work anymore.
>Why didn't they give Yayaka and Cocona a forgiveness make-up scene?
Time, and it's hardly necessary since we know what's up between them.
>Why did flying into a black hole kill Dark Queen Mimi?
Love conquers all.
>Did they really make Cocona's final piece of development be doing the same thing she's been doing since the first fucking episode?
Pay more attention.
Gotta take care of your daughteru. What better way to do it other than to modify you good friend to suit her?
The QUALITY was incredibly apparent this time compared to previous episodes, and it felt rushed in places. Also what was that clusterfuck going on in the real world with the playdoh scattered everywhere? It looked ugly as fuck. The sloppiness is expected due to scheduling issues I guess, so can't really blame the staff.
As for the story, not sure how I feel about it overall. There are still unanswered questions, and a lot things were resolved in an anti-climatic way. Also, they went for the safe happy ending which was disappointing (Papika LITERALLY appeared out of the pipe at the end like one anon predicted). Good for them to give senpai resolution though, and the fact that they eventually ended up in a PI that's a bleaker version of her own world was a nice twist that no one saw coming. Even if this show didn't succeed in becoming a masterpiece at least in my view, it deserves recognition for doing what it did and trying to stand out.
The Iroha Cocona met in episode 1 was the blue Iroha from DPI. Blue Iroha was the one that hid in her room and drew pictures to escape her parent's constantly fighting. She;s the Iroha that felt shame because her parents called her drawings weird.
She painted to cope with her shitty life, which is why she joked that she had trouble getting things done unless the day was "just right." She didn't paint for fun, she painted to deal with things. She sought Cocona's approval for the painting in the hallway in episode 1 because she still felt shame over making "weird" things
The consequence of Cocona and Papika's meddling in episode 6 was that Blue Iroha switched with orange Iroha
Orange Iroha paints because she enjoys it, and to share that joy with others. She is the Iroha that spent time with Auntie and had Auntie compliment her drawings and tell her it's okay if they're weird.
As a result of the switch, Iroha no longer felt the need to cling to her paintings because she didn't desire approval, and didn't feel the need to paint to deal with her emotions. She could part with that attitude gracefully. Instead, she came around and painted again when she wanted to, because she enjoys painting.
The change was framed as a negative one because it was presented through the eyes of Cocona, who fears change. She overreacted and we, as the viewer, were made to see it the way she did. In reality, it was never a bad thing.
Cocona went with the old hag when she could of had Yayaka
Its just a great show. The artstyle and colors are bold, the characters are likable, more is shown than it is told, there is a lot of subtle development portrayed via character behavior and reaction instead of pure dialogue/monologues. Its also just really fun, and has a layer of depth and mystery to it that most anime explains away.
Also, I am not even a yurifag, but this show made me root for PapiCoco because their pairing is just that good.
As expected of cat lovers.
The exceptional direction and attention to detail.
The subtle visual storytelling
The friendship/romance between two girls that managed to be wonderful and fulfilling without being typical homoerotic smut teasing.
The great characters
The cool concepts, interesting worlds, neat visuals and fun action
The whole package really. The show excelled holistically and didn't rely on one element to support any other.
She didn't have to. She got stuck with blue Iro after aunty died and Cocopaps flipped her back to Orange iro. She became more social and threw some of her old art out because the emo crap was no longer compelling for her, but she was not broken in the same way that Mimi broke Saltdad.
Cocona's approach to DPI was probably less brute-force then Mimi's.
Yayaka got so messed up she's into bestiality now
>(Papika LITERALLY appeared out of the pipe at the end like one anon predicted)
It was in the storyboards not much of a prediction.
Also yeah quite a bit of quality but it could be worse. I enjoyed the episode overall though and will look forward to rewatching it when it has been fixed up for the BD release. Got tearful in a few places to be honest.
I loved how, for a change, they didn't:
-vanish/sacrifice Papika (because magical things must dissapear muh mature muh message)
-Seal PI forever (same as above)
-Kill Mimi (same as above)
They literally gave a finger to the "everything becomes normal and MC moves on" ends, that alone is impressive enough
Everyone has a place to be. Hell they even fixed Iroha, holy shit
these threads move too fast and have too many words
>12/30/16 at 9:00 am
That's almost another 24 hours.
Does anyone else think we're leaving it too long?
Why not 9PM tonight?
A Yayaka end was always completely out of the question, and YayaCoco wasn't particularly interesting anyway. What I do feel she needs is some epilogue where she finds a new home at Flip Flap, since her big issue was not having a place to belong and it doesn't feel like she got one yet.
My problems with this anime is the last two episodes could have been written very differently and it wouldn't have mattered it would have felt just as right, that's the kind of show it is. That's not necessarily bad, but it irks me then that the issues are still present despite that. They could have fixed a lot of flaws in the last two episodes and not have had any issues with the writing
>They literally gave a finger to the "everything becomes normal and MC moves on" ends
>Papika didn't have to disappear
>the shitty, boring "real" world was the Pure Illusion, not the colorful one
>they can go on all the adventures they want together now
Yes. She got what she deserved for betraying her "friend" all these years. Her changing sides right at the end only saved her life, so she should be thankful for what she got.
>angsty JC girl corrupting a sexy cake into her loyal lesbian girlfriend
That's my kinda story
>Why did Papika send coco away in that blue bubble?
the same reason she went out of her way in episode 1 to grab the glasses.
also to ask Mimi for her permission to marry her daughter.
>What was that second with Cocona slashing something when
Cocona was supposed to go through the portal to escape PI, but she slashed out of the portal to stay in PI with Papika. But PI mind fuckery happened, and she woke up in the "real world" PI, until Papika found her.
>Why was she in that world and how'd she end up there
Just explained it above.
It's definitely the opposite. Papika needs to be protected soon.
Papika is innocent. It's her best friend's daughter who is taking advantage of her.
>Why did Papika send coco away in that blue bubble?
She sent Cocona to safety while she was going to fuck Mimi
>What was that second with Cocona slashing something when
Cocona was slashing the portal to PI just after it closed with her inside the bubble, so she essentially got back into PI
>Why was she in that world and how'd she end up there
She was in PI, so she probably just wandered around until falling into the "Real World" PI and being influenced by it.
For people who were really invested in the relationship between Cocona and Papika (to the point where it's the whole point of their experience I mean), I can see them having enjoyed the finale. They really nailed that tone at least, and emotionally it succeeded. It's just a shame that a lot of things were mediocre from a technical perspective about the episode. BDs will fix everything I guess. Also I'm disappointed Cocona never realized Salt was her dad, even if that was never their intent. I'm probably not alone in not caring about anything involving Salt/Mimi in some way, especially anything to do with the latter.
Cocona's so fucking thirsty
Makes sense. I suppose Papika wanted closure with her friend
Can they still access PI?
What was the deal with the missing crystal in her thigh?
What happens to the characters in that grey PI?
>a 5 second scene for Iroha at the end is enough to impress people
An actual conversation with Cocona would have been a lot better. Then again they were pressed for time so she didn't even talk to Salt, Yayaka, or kids calling her onee-chan either.
That happy flying off into the sunset ending annoyed me more than it should.
Their willingness to talk about tough real-world topics in a creative and thought-provoking way, the beautiful colors/scenery, The fun PI worlds, and Papika.
I was hooked the instant they henshin'd in episode 3.
This forced meme is the most obvious thing in the world. Why do people react every time?
>Yayaka can only Henshin with fragments and those don't work anymore.
Mimi specifically said it was her who was letting them transform. The fragments were just part of that. Once she stopped allowing it Papika turned back too.
The new white transformation was Cocona transforming herself and Papika with her own power instead of relying on Mimi's PI. There's no reason she couldn't give it to Yayaka too.
A PAPIKA EPISODE
ZERO FUCKING PAPIKA EPISODES
EVEN YAYAKA HAD LIKE 3 EPISODES ABOUT HER CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
WE DIDNT EVEN GET CLOSURE ON THE WHOLE GRANDMA PAPIKANA THING
>tfw I was expecting a morning breakfast with Sayuri and Salt when she woke up
>Can they still access PI?
Since the gray boring world was PI and Mimi still exists it's assumed yes.
>What was the deal with the missing crystal in her thigh?
An amorphous, AKA part of Mimi, when Mimi became whole again all the amorphous disappeared.
>What happens to the characters in that grey PI?
Those weren't the "real" Yayaka/Sayuri/etc that Cocona knew, they were part of that PI.
In my mind, Cocona was seriously considering painting as an emotional and creative outlet, hence why she was drawn to Iroha. The epilogue will have her join the art club, come to love painting and decide to apply to a highschool with a solid art program so she can hone her skills.
Her henshin item was a stick to represent a paintbrush and her Pure Blade was a cross between a painters palette, a pair of scissors and an easel.
>one has mimi's eyes
>second one has coconut's eyes
That's a problem for all of the characters really, aside from Papika and Cocona's relationship the rest of the world just stopped mattering. But for anyone who actually was interested in the story, the stuff just wants you to get fucked.
>sexual predation intensifies
I'm a bit sad that they didn't manage to pull off a Madoka ending. But I'm also happy that they didn't ruin the show with a bullshit ending either. Flip Flappers was a good show. Would watch again. Will watch more when available.
I wonder how many times Papika has turned around, bent over the edge of the tub and presented herself to Cocona.
I think it was 3 in total. Her instincts must've been taking over whenever she got a whiff of that unclothed Cocoroma
>Her henshin item was a stick to represent a paintbrush and her Pure Blade was a cross between a painters palette, a pair of scissors and an easel.
Actually the stick is closer to a conductor's baton, and she waves it like one too.
Someone ask the director, or someone, anyone.
Don't you dare touch Papika, she a good girl, she dindu nuffin!
They've been telling for the past 4 episodes, why stop now?
YOU CAN POST IN THE SAME THREAD FROM TWO DEVICES?
WELL THAT'S JUST FLAPPING CRAZY!
You're all retarded.
I don't know anything about art but that painting looks so cool and ominous, is there a name to this
Tongueposting went TOO FAR.
But it's awwright.
Forgot my image
Yayaka it's time to stop posting and to feed the rabbit
Swear on my flaps I didn't. I didn't even have red-eyes edit.
Second picture is a frame from the episode.
>it was all a dream-like ending
You know, it's a perfect mediocre ending to tie up the terrible plot from the last 4 episodes we had to consolidate this as a very regular and uninteresting 6/10.
This reminds me in a way of Ayakashi, except while in Ayakashi if someone asked i would just suggest to skip the first 2/3's to get to the good part, in this i would say to watch the first 2/3's and stop there before PLOT starts.
What surprises me is how people can call something like Madoka's ending shit after FliFla just turned out an okay but unspectacular finale. At least Madoka didn't have nearly as many unresolved questions and completed its story in a way that was well built up to and not rushed.
Papika/Mimi are not part of the world where KKK is established. Cocona was just stuck in this world because Mimi had sex with a guy and gave birth to her in this world. Pretty much Papika and Cocona is able to traverse several world/dimensions which is some how linked to people's memories.
No, this is the official and very important poll!
there's nothing to substantiate about "i didn't like it"
I mean, personally i thought it was alright but it's an awful plotty, "here's the clever solution to this puzzle" ending that doesn't do a lot for the characters.
All right, time for me to sleep.
The angle of the painting makes it difficult to see what that light thing in the water is, which combines with the dark palette and ominous colour contrasts to make it seem foreboding. The root of all fear is uncertainty, so not being able to fully make out what's evidently enshrined in that unsettling scene really adds to it.
Madoka's ending was garbage, anon. Madoka's resolve came out of nowhere and her grand sacrifice solved fucking nothing if you actually stopped to think about it.
Flip Flap's ending was a bit uninspired, but at least it was pretty inoffensive.
Uxékull es el mejor personaje de este anime. Para mi fue el mejor anime de la temporada y de todo el año
So what about this recent episode we got? There was hardly any puzzle, and any solutions to their problems were far from clever but being literally love conquers all. I don't need plotty but things have to at least make sense within the internal universe of the story. Also I don't know how you can say the ending didn't do anything for Homura and Madoka, seeing that it dealt with the central tragedy of their relationship.
Mimi wanted so bad that her daughter wouldn't get dicked
At least my eyes were entertained, but boy that was a mess. I'm debating whether or not it was a case of I simply didn't get it or the show failing in what it set out to do, but I did not care about the story or characters. They throw a lot at you but none of it connected with me.
If this season, Yuri on Ice can make me care about a sport I don't care about and even Keijo can sell me it's silliness to a degree, then surely this fantasy sci-fi magical girl yuri sakuga explosion, things which I usually enjoy, could do more than it did. It's strange like that, which only makes it that much more of a disappointment.
This is a show that should warrant a rewatch, but I just don't feel like it. I'll stick with Sakugabooru. I like these animators and will keep an eye on their future projects.
I liked the tv ending, but I wasn't engaged to the series to begin with
its threads on /a/ were absolute hell I stayed away from all of them, too many crazy fanboysand Rebellion was alright, I guess.
That wasn't even an important "twist" within the story. The incubators just needed a reason to do what they did. You could replace heat death with anything else because it wasn't an integral part of why people enjoyed the show.
yo quiero oir esa canción oiga
>Yayaka had both legs fully covered and no gradients
>Mimi has both legs mostly bare and two gradients
>gradients transition smoothly into hair
This design was so cool, I love it.
Who else has Over the Rainbow on repeat right now and will for the foreseeable future?
I yam still baffled people voted Cocona in that pole
Not sure if this is a bait post but I agree. The show just discarded too much logic and relied on emotion, so few things had any impact by the end. They literally stopped Mimi by believing in the power of love and being intentionally sucked into her womb.
Well to me the entropy twist was completely ridiculous and was what shattered my immersion. For me it marked the point where the show derailed and went from a 9-10/10 to a 6/10 over the course of a few episodes.
Mimi's henshin and the Papika sniff sniffs were my favorite parts of the episode.
I was actually disappointed at Madoka's ending. They only started fleshing out one random timeline of Madoka's character after the Homura's confession, so it didn't really follow the plot development that I had in mind, namely Madoka being sacrificed or left alone because she's useless or something, and Homura finally crumbles. I could be wrong though.
I wanna put my opinion on the ending here: I think it was great. I think we didn't have enough time to really feel it though. Imagine if we had episode 13 and an episode 14. Episode 13 could have been expanded to have more epic fights and conflict, and would end with Papika flying away while Cocona is left in the portal.
Then Episode 14 would start with the real world PI bit, but expand it to cover half the episode. Really have us feel that loss. Then halfway through, we get the pipe scene and everything as it is. No we got 5 more minutes or so to wrap things up good- a bit of an epilogue of sorts. Establish how their lives are gonna be, end it with a montage of PI adventures, Saltdad shenanigans, Flip Flap fun times, and Papika and Cocona loving each other. Final Shot/scene should be them sitting in the flower field under the umbrella from the OP, talking about how they love each other.
Indeed it is
That's pretty awful taste, anon. You should get that checked out.
I would like to defend the theory posting:
To propose a theory, you need to state a lot of your basic facts and assumptions before you throw out the theory. You autists literally can't read more than a sentence without skipping to replying, so you assume the point was the foundation of the argument rather than what they were building towards saying.
>There was hardly any puzzle
plot puzzles are mostly shit anyway unless you do it perfectly, just look at O;9
>literally love conquers all
it was a story about love, so that's the payoff for that
not to mention that madoka's "I will sacrifice myself (involving convoluted plot reasons made up just so that can happen)" isn't elegant or genius either
>things have to at least make sense within the internal universe of the story
anything can happen in PI, which is sort of cheap but also satisfactory for the purposes of THIS story
> how you can say the ending didn't do anything for Homura and Madoka
it didn't do nothing for them, but it's not character-centric and it basically leaves homura where she was before and gives madoka time to shine with a heroic sacrifice. again, don't see how this is better than flip flappers.
I've had https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hT1OKo1rT84 on repeat for a couple weeks
Was is really necessary?
I genuinely almost dropped Madoka on episode 9.
I'm fortunate I watched the show while it was airing because the threads are the only reason I bothered to give it another chance at episode 10, and that episode alone made it worthwhile.
