Why couldn't the show just be episodic PI adventures? It would have been so much better like that.

Good job, 3Hz. You could have made a masterpiece.

If it had just been episodic with no overarching plot you'd have complained that there was no central conflict and thus no reason for being invested in the story. You're determined to find fault regardless of how things played out.

I actually thought it was one of the weakest. Never liked desert scenes. They feel too empty.

I'm slightly confused. So was that PI world cocona was in when papika was missing just a baity thing to make us think that that was the actual real world and they had been in some PI the entire time? So green rabbit bro is actually real and not PI if that's the case?

Who is going to get hime haijime'd on new years morning? Cocona by Papika or Papika by Cocona?

I don't know how you came to that conclusion. Manly Uexküll only comes out in PI. Everyone escaped Pure Illusion before Papika tried to send Cocona out, too, but Cocona sliced the bubble apart and got stuck in another PI world where everything seemed real and hopeless.

>How was mimi turned into amorphous fragment crystals?

Her good personality wanting Cocona to live her life as she wants conflicted with her bad personality of wanting to protect Cocona, which made her explode, is one of the theories

Probably world domination by using PI's powers

>Are there multiple instances of PI or does it all happen in Mimi's? If multiple, are they necessarily linked to a certain person?

PI's differ from perso to person but Mimi has the power to control things in the PI'S, also they are interpersonal relationships unless you are using ELPIS (another theory)

>How was mimi turned into amorphous fragment crystals?
GoodMimi is able to retain consciousness long enough to hand over Cocona and blow herself up into fragments.

>What is KKK/Salt's dad trying to accomplish?
KKK was originally a research team dedicated to studying Pure Illusion. The man in charge, Salt's dad, gets mindfucked when he tries to test his machine (this machine supposedly places people entering PI near the user's mind-gate-thing like the one in Iroha's PI). He goes insane and obsesses over PI and sees Mimi as a goddess, so the KKK is created as a cult with the sole purpose of breaking down the barrier that separates PI from reality (EvilMimi was sort of achieving this in the final episodes).
Salt was probably trying to bring Mimi back using the collected fragments, but when EvilMimi appeared his new goal was to stop her from taking Cocona away.

>Trippy wonderland instrumentality?
Sort of. I think the KKK believes that PI acts like a dream in that you can do whatever you want. Considering that changing some stuff in PI affects the real world, they might have wanted a world that was controllable by humans. Each person gets their perfect world (PI); so yeah Instrumentality but without the sharing each others thoughts and suffering.

>Are there multiple instances of PI or does it all happen in Mimi's?
Multiple PIs. Only Mimi can roam freely between them. Why she has god powers, nobody knows.

>If multiple, are they necessarily linked to a certain person?
Some are connected to people (see: Iroha, Uexhill, Bu), while others are just random. How Iroha managed to paint perfect sceneries of PI without even knowing about their existence is just another example of QUALITY writing.

Coco's grandma was a bunny kkk robot all along, and she was under the group's supervision.
Why didn't they isolate coco from the flip flappers way sooner? Did yayaka just never tell the bunny kkk who it was that she was sparing? Why wouldn't the twins have ratted on them?
Is Papika technically a pedo?
Why didn't the robot just fly out to sea and grab the fucking hoverboard, when they were stranded on that deserted island? You can see him flying it up to them in the final shot, when they're falling from the sky.

>How was mimi turned into amorphous fragment crystals?

Internal conflict was too great, it literally tore her apart. Just like how evil mimi losing control of her shit caused lizard face and good mimi to creep in, complete Mimi being utterly conflicted caused her to burst into treats.

>What is KKK/Salt's dad trying to accomplish? Trippy wonderland instrumentality?

Global Conquest via control of PI, Yayaka tells us this.

>Are there multiple instances of PI or does it all happen in Mimi's? If multiple, are they necessarily linked to a certain person?

PI seems to be heavily based off the idea of the collective unconscious. Basically, its a mixed amalgamation of everyones inner, psychic worlds. That said, the different individual 'worlds' of PI seem to relate to specific people. At the same time, it seems more fluid than simply "1 world = 1 person".

DPI is directly related to a single persons mind however. Normal PI is a layer above, and is more of a mixture of everyones unconscious, but is possibly influenced most by whoevers DPI is closest to it.

Mimi is just really special and has tons of natural control over PI.

I've learned something valuable from my years on /a/. There's real criticism and then there's /a/ criticism, trying to shitpost the show to death by posting non-substantive, exclamatory remarks. There is no refuting the latter, because they will simply continue shitposting and pretend their being refuted did not occur in the next thread.

Nah, the Drama of the second half should be something that has nothing to do with S1.

I think it should actually be 100% real world stuff, and PapiCoco have to retreat into Pure illusion to escape from it.

Like maybe the government organisation that funded SaltDad wants to tie up lose ends, so they are trying to eliminate everything related to Flip Flap and alsceplpisufiious.

So PapiCoco retreat into PI, hopping from world to world, while government agents pursue them. Every once in a while get a Flip Flap/Salt episode or a Yayaka/Twins episode.

>>151618537

It's directed to the director's Twitter, it doesn't have to be tagged with the Flip Flappers hashtag. He'll see it either way.

Whether or not he responds, favorites or retweets it is a different story but after seeing that he retweeted the Famicom arrange and Mad Max Yuri Road, it's likely he would. Unless he thinks we're making fun of him/the show somehow.

Thats what the strawpolls were for!

Reminder that nearly 55% believe the show is a masterpiece, flawed or otherwise, while another 30% believe it was really great and awesome, but not quite masterpiece material. The remaining 20% is divided between people thinking it was merely good or 'ok'. Less than 10 individuals say the show is shit.

*counted from people who were in a Flip Flap thread

Let's be real. The numbers that matter more are the poll that said Flip Flappers was /a/'s most watched show this season, and that it was the second most discussed show by post count, after only YoI, and we had far more unique posters per thread.

FF is /a/'s AotS and an AotY contender.

yeah, but it does give you an idea of the consensus of the people who are in the threads.

I am census-kun and I agree with this post.

The census was mainly a counter to the overload of shitposting that was occuring on that day- it was meant to illustrate to everyone in the thread that the shitposts that looked to be coming from 50+ people was actually just 2-4 samefags shitting up the thread.

The census served its purpose, and I am glad I did it. But it has lived its life and did its job.

The thing you are mentioning in your post matters more to /a/ as a whole.

The posts had less text though since there is nothing to talk about when your show is ice skating and homo pandering.

FlipFlops had production hiccups and mediocre and rushed plot by the end, but that's it. I think most anons are disappointed because of their high expectations, not because the whole anime was outright bad.

GX on the other hand had shitload of QUALITY and no sakuga to balance that throughout the whole season. It also performed an outstanding feat of failing to execute generic mahou shoujo scenario by throwing out the script after ep 6 to rehash old drama for sweet CD shekels. Now that's what I call 'fucking up'.

The show had a great premise and the overarching narrative was fine and a nice explanation with cool themes and a message to deliver.

Binge watching is definitely the way to go with this anime.
You cycle through feels faster than you can handle them, and you always have this slight bit of dread that something bad is going to happen to Papika.

Flip Flappers did have more than magical girl mediocrity, it was just hard to convey in the time they had.

We had at least:
mommy vs daddy issues
nature vs nurture
discovering your true identity
the VALUE of friendship vs the POWER of friendship
parallel universes
existentialism
positive reinforcement with being happy with where you are
non-freudian psychology
and meta-commentary focused on how poorly the presented because of the time constraints including:
thommassons
red herrings
and a thommasson who shoots a chekhov's gun

Can FF even be called a yuri show?
I mean, Papika and Cocona are gay for each other, and that much is clear.
But, there was also a straight relationship with Salt and Mimi.
There was a lesbian unrequited love in Yayaka.
There was a straight unrequited love in Sayuri,

So, as far as love orientation goes, the show is pretty much even, regardless of the main focus being Papika and Cocona's relationship.

I mean, your usual Yuri show is about girls being gay, whereas Flip Flappers had an actual plot it focused on, but it just happened the MCs were gay for each other.

I think all things considered, it conveyed it all pretty well. At the very least, it conveyed everything more comprehensively and completely than for example FLCL did, which people praise.

Honestly, I am impressed that they actually managed to take the biggest weakness with the show (the time constraints) and make it sort of into a strength with how they presented the meta jokes and how they used the opportunity to really have things full of energy all the time, not unlike how FLCL did things.
>>
>>151622322

You're reaching there a little. She might admire him and occasionally masturbate to seeing his half-naked body from now on, but it's never stated or implied that it's anything more than what Cocona felt for Iroha.

Ikuharian, you say. Did you know that Ikuhara wanted to do explicit yuri from the beginning in Utena, and was only prevented from doing so by his manga artist threatening to quit? But he maintains that he "did it anyway", sneaking in as much as he could. Then he made this.

To be fair, Ikuhara is a lot better when he's got limitations placed on him.

It establishes that Papika and Cocona were childhood friends, and Yayaka can get fucked. It also hints at how the two fell out of PI in the first place. I guess their impedance was too high, so they got split up when the travelled to the real world. Papika ended up with her old friend Salt, and Cocona wound up in KKK hands.
>>
>>151622794
Adolescence was also a Be-Papas work, not Ikuhara alone.
>>
>>151622682
That was happening before the show took place, when they were both really young. She probably wasn't in PI or a tree cage in the actual event, but Cocona might have met her when she was snooping around the lab with Yayaka.
She forgot about it because she was young, and it might actually explain why they had a "moment" when they first locked eyes.
>Also, how did cocona end up in the care of the Klan afterwards?
She didn't. The klan captured her as a toddler alongside Papika, then regressed Papika's age.

Oh, I've long felt the same. MPD and YKA, especially MPD, felt like an overconcentrated distillation of his visual and thematic tricks that were much more sparingly applied in Utena.

But let's not pretend the man doesn't fucking love lesbians. Hell, consider the fact that two of the three breakout late 90s/early 00 phenomenons that gave birth to modern yuri were Sailor Moon (by which I mean Haruka and Michiru in S), Utena, and Maria-sama ga Miteru. Ikuhara is largely responsible for two of those. He's literally the father of modern yuri as we know it.

>Literally every problem with every character was resolved
We don't know what Cocona, Papika, Yayaka, Salt, Hidaka, Sayuri, Toto, Yuyu, or Nyunyu plan to do in the future, most of them don't have homes or jobs, and many of them have their only purpose in life removed. As characters they've only introduced problems by not fleshing them out and then the show drops any pretense of caring and doesn't have them interact again.

Pick your favorite show. Imagine they blew up the house in the final episode and then everyone just went to school like nothing had happened and we never see a solution. And then people go online and say it was a proper happy ending and everything was resolved. That's how stupid you look.

>then regressed Papika's age
I'm like 90% sure it was mimi who locked up papika and regressed her age so she could look after cocona
>>
>>151622682
It happened in the past right as Mimi was disappearing into PI with baby Cocona and Papika went after her. Papika managed to snag Cocona and Mimi burst into fragments, then Papika got imprisoned into the tree, got amnesia and de-aged to Cocona's own age. It's all assumption, but it may have happened due to Mimi wanting Papika to become Cocona's friend, given some credibility by the fact that the fragment in Cocona's leg lit up when the bars of the tree prison opened up. Cocona had been in PI all along. As for the rest, they must've wandered out of PI and then taken into custody by Asclepius and Flip Flap respectively. I assume Asclepius got to them first but didn't care about Papika because she didn't have a fragment like Cocona did.

Cocona certainly doesn't care about Yayaka or anyone else now that she has her Papika. Since the show was always about her, it only makes sense that they don't go into boring details about how the other characters are going to live their lives now. It's enough that they showed everyone being happy in the end. Including Iro.

I'm pretty sure that when she sucked the 3 of them into PI, she put cocona and papika together in a world before she split up into the amorphous gems. For whatever reason she locked up papika and regressed her age so she could later look after her and left cocona to do whatever, and then when they finally met, something (probably some impedance shit) happened causing them to fall out of PI. I'm not sure why mimi split up into the gems, though. Anyone?

You could rationalize that the KKK is so crazed/occupied that it just didn't recognize Papika's dumb face when it poked through the portal, if you're going to stretch logic that hard.

maybe even too, because a lot of things were already headcanon by the time they were shown.
Of course i'm not that stupid to think that showing things that are already heavily implied is a "bad twist", but thismade the last episodes feel a bit boring and liveless compared the 1-8

That's just nihlist bullshit.

Actually, Cocona is a ftm man, Papika is Mimi in a wig, and the ending is totally straight. Because the details don't matter.

>>151623414
It's the first time I've ever posted it
>>
>>151623274
>That sounds counter productive too!
It isn't, since a deaged Papika would have no memories of anything, and she indeed didn't.

Evil Mimi's failure was just failing to realise Cocona and Papika would become gay for each other no matter what, but that was always beyond her.
>>
>>151623436
That statement was literally the opposite of nihilism
>>
>>151623181
>For whatever reason she locked up papika
She didn't want to risk Papika being free to unleash her inner toddlercon before being properly de-aged.

Half of the cast are scientists. Presumably Hidaka and Sayuri have professional qualifications, maybe Salt too.

Salt also has access to all of the KKK's assets, and if they have assets in the first place then they had to have been getting funding from somewhere.

Layers of PI are also intersecting, so I think they'd have bigger problems to worry about than being homeless.

I FOUND A PANTY SHOT

>I'm not sure why mimi split up into the gems,
The best I can come up with is in that final moment Mimi regretted her decision and found the only way she could to stop her dark side from ruining her daughter's life.
What happened to Papika could've been collateral damage from this internal struggle Mimi was having.

I'm not particularly worried about the adults I included them though because we know nothing about most of their desires past the collecting, they're flat. The kids have it much worse when they were designed and brought up in the cult and then nothing.

Episode 6 is an actual masterpiece and easily one of the top 5 single episodes of the decade.

The adults are kinda obliged to take care of the kids. Especially since Salt is Cocona's biological father who both has enough money to run his own independent lab and will likely be able to repossess and liquidate the KKK since his dad's gone, and that was a huge research facility that likely had millions in equipment and infrastructure.

This spin sequence was weird indeed. It appeared out of nowhere but very quickly they resumed their original position.

Final Episode Rankings:

11>4=6=7=1=9>3>8=13>12>10>5>2
10/10---------------9/10-----------------8/10

Really good series desu. The worst episodes are still no worst than 8/10, and most of the series is 10/10 and 9/10 material.

Most shows are lucky to even get a single 8 or 9 out of 10 episode from me. So a series that is this consistently good is just fantastic.

Thanks for flip flapping with me guys.

When will Oshiyama wake up?
>>
Can Flip Flappers be considered isekai?
>>
>>151623609
I especially liked how the next episode expanded on it. After every Iroha fan was saying she got ruined the show basically told us about the different sides of a personality and how the whole package is the only right choice.

I don't remember the last time i saw something with a message that was so well implemented
>>
>>151623979
>any post-9 episode
>10/10
Opinion discarded.
>>
>>151623991
It can be considered "isekai" in the sense that it includes a parallel world, they even use the term at one point IIRC.
But as for the "isekai" genre, it definitely doesn't meet the definition.
>>
shhhh Oshiyama is sleeping
>>
>>151624006
11 is my favorite episode in the series. Excellent Payoff episode. Its truly unfortunate that 12 and 13 couldn't keep up that level of quality, but they were both still really good and I was satisfied with how everything turned out.
>>
I THOUGHT THE ENDING WAS GODLIKE
I WAS THOROUGHLY BAMBOOZLED

Even if you don't like the content of it, 11 is an extremely well directed episode of anime.
