Can we talk about how Diana is a confirmed Fairy Fetus Murderer?
this show is a mahou shoujo right
>if diana hadn't spoonfed akko the right words we would have had akko making two attempts stuffing up the words and then persevering and getting them right on the third try
why does diana keep ruining everything?
>Diana-fags openly support species genocide
wow diana really is /pol/'s gal
yup checks out
also noticed she doesn't have any friends of color
tsk tsk diana
The statue in the plaza is the Greek goddess Hecate. She's the goddess of witchcraft and necromancy. For those that watched Flip Flappers, she's like a female version of Asclepius. Hecate is also a liminal-being, she is the goddess of the crossroads and the unknown which is why she's represented with three heads. One head looks down the path of where you came from, while the other two heads look down the paths of potential futures. Animals she's associated with are snakes, ravens, and feral dogs.
>yfw the entire commercial operation of putting on chariot performances world wide, starting a trading card phenomenon and making chariot world famous was purely to get the shiny rod into the hands of some westaboo 10 years later
really makes you think
What the fuck was her problem??
I know right? Sleeping in class, after all that fuss to get to the school in the first place. Sucy being best girl as usual though.
She's already a witch in her own right, she has little need of further education.
But she doesn't want to get kicked out while she's bumming around advancing her research, so she goes to class anyway. But it's all material known or irrelevant to her, so she needs something to pass the time...
Punking her roommate is as good an option as any.
I like how the only girl from the other group in this episode was Jasminka on line for food.
It's fine, Akko will just get the nerd to tutor her later
>tfw have to wait another week for a new episode
Then I guess it's up to Diana to save the day
Am I the only one not feeling this episode?
>Akko does stupid shit
pls stop the bullying
>Ursula wastes her entire time reading
>Diana acts on her own isn't even punishedfor her actions
>Ursula being dumb in general
>MORE BULLYING FROM THE TEACHERS
>Akko saves the day using card information
I don't know if some parts felt too rushed or too slow.
Is there any moment when she isnt retarded?
I feel like there are better ways to do this cafeteria setup, if you know that you're going to have lawn gnomes serving the food. There's no way having their feet that close to the food is sanitary.
>Kabbalistic astrological divination methods.
Do you think Trigger will actually base their magic off of esoteric Jewish mysticism? Because that would be really interesting.
Or do they have no idea what the Kabbalah is and they just used this to be cool?
I was too lazy to find bigger one
>you will never bully Akko with Diana and her groupies
Why even live?
>can't admit that a newbie non-witch commoner bested her
I really just want them to be BEST FRIENDS.
Why is it so fucking blurry. You need to use a better scaling algorithm.
Also take screenshots using your video player's built-in screenshot function to take them at source resolution.
>The statue in the plaza is the Greek goddess Hecate. She's the goddess of witchcraft and necromancy.
That was a comfy episode.
I liked the Chariot/Pokemon analogy. The cards had real magical info that Akko autistically memorized as a kid.
>training wheels and handles
That's p cute.
>only places in the world that still actually believe in witchcraft, practice it, and have long long histories of it
>not having witches at witch school
reminder tituba was the only actual witch and she admitted to it, practiced it, taught it to other girls but never got trialed or hanged
however after her the town descended into madness and started hanging their own god fearing christians left right and centre
black witches are the most powerful
Must be hard being a loser non-witch in a witch academy.
Diana is probably the type of girl who likes to be sexually dominated so after Akko asserts her strength and saves her ass a few more times it'll be all good.
we got to see her in a yellow sports bra in the credits, so it works itself out.
It's the second episode, it's only just establishing future plot lines. Mainly, how Diana fits into Akko's story. She seemed distraught over being given credit for the thing with the tree. Seeing Akko realize something she did not, and do something she could not, with the shiny fucking rod no less, well, when she's revealed to be a Chariot fan and having the super rare card Akko lacked is gonna be a good moment.
Not to say I don't see your point. The execution of Akko just putting herself in the way of Diana's shot felt cheap and overused.
>It's all thanks to Diana's magic!
>Thank you, Diana.
>P-please wait! This was not my doing...
>Who else besides you could have done it?
>I... Please excuse me.
Yeah, nah. She's a fucking stuck up bitch. She can't believe that a scrub loser like Akko could even be in the same league as her, so the magic must have been a fluke.
>yet none of them told her about it or got rid of it
if you walked around with a kick me sign on your back at school
everyone that didn't tell you about it or didn't take it off is a cunt desu
I thought the scene of Akko's childhood was super adorable. Just the sheer joy in her face as she got that rare card, or cuddling up with her collector's book at night. Shit's too goddamn cute.
but Akko wants to be more than just friends
>Diana acts on her own isn't even punishedfor her actions
>implying her 1500 great lineage doesn't fund half of the school's budget
>implying headmistress isn't her grandma
It's adolescence, anon. You live and learn and get to electrocute a couple of students.
I bet her family pressures her to be such a model student and she doesn't want to disappoint them or something like that.
I mean she is the heir of a very old an powerful magic family and all but she nearly killed a race of luck bringing mystical fairies by mistake.
I mean... according Jewish tradition that Kabbalistic symbol on the board in >>152299234 dates from Eden and the tradition was used to determine the righteous people (Tzadikim).
So basically it dates to the origin of humanity. Anno wasn't the first human, so I guess it came before him.
>tfw amanda is favorite witch
>tfw overalls fetish
I've never been so erect in my entire life
I think Trigger's will be basing the magic off of a number of sources. But, there's a lot of interesting things they could do if they included Jewish mysticism/mythology more.
>mono eye sensei
How did i not catch that.
One of these witches is not like the others
One of these withes isn't the same...
Were there any good Akko reaction images this ep? I didn't notice any.
>Diana acts on her own isn't even punishedfor her actions
From your list, this is litetally the only thing that can be agreed with and still, that's a stretch. Do you need another episode to keep hammering into your head that the members of the Cavendish house and Diana specifically are put into a pedestal?
They took Diana's actions as "proactive" because of that.
Also, English teachers are usually sarcastic cunts and dicks. It fits with the bulliyng.
See, I feel like that could be an amazing angle that Trigger (or really any Japanese company) would never explore. Basing magic off of varying mystical traditions from different cultures/religions/countries.
But Japan doesn't know any of that, so we'll never get it.
What a know it all bitch.
She's starting to get into my nerves.
She's now WORST girl in my list. Yes, all capital letters for emphasis.
far left is the real English witch?
thats the one who teaches explosion magic
Diana a SHIT.
Her hair is ugly too.
Will trigger take inspiration from Esoteric Kekism?
I want to do extra credit assignments for that smile
>What if the reason that the school is so exclusive is because it is only for (((the chosen people))).
Ironically, the symbol on the board was used to determine the "tadikim nistarim" (righteous ones) so you're not that far off.
The problem is we all know Trigger isn't playing 9-dimensional chess, so this type of symbolism is too advanced. They're probably just doing it because Evangelion did it, and Evangelion did it because Anno thought it was cool.
How will you react to the episode where Akko and Diana finally become best friends?
Is this the comfiest show of all time?
also here's only anon who replied last thread
Holy shit that makes so much sense, I never connected the dots before.
I'll give something back in return - did you know that Akko and Diana were present at the opening Shiny Chariot show in the past?
Very few people in the world are actual magicians, those that aren't are rare as fuck and emerge occasionally but without direction can't do shit.
Even if the TCG was a ruse to find adept new bloodlines for magic users it would only be targeted towards a small spectrum of the population that could actually afford a booster pack.
It's not even a good scouting method and finding a kid able to pull magic without guidance in such a small 1st world spectrum is near impossible.
I agree 100% Diana is a know-it-all cunt and is most definitely WORST girl
This is my wife. (on the left.)
This is my bitch ex-wife. (on the right.)
These threads are terrible. I'm going to just watch the episode again.
>ursula loses her ability to use the shiny rod because she loses her purity to the guy from credits in ep1
>diana is going to take akko's ability to use the shiny rod away by the end of the season
Then I know what will make you jelly.
I got the frame of her when she's hanging down graving the gold egg before getting busted from the second movie.
That's a mask. In fact it reminded me of Best Gorgon.
>you will never get special mentoring from Ursula-sensei
>Frees the dragon in the OVA and nearly gets everyone killed
>Nearly extinctions the rare magical fairy butterflies
Diana will you ever stop being just awful at everything
are these her hips or her dress
I actually just wanted to point out that they changed her eye color. I seriously doubt that there is anyone on these threads who hasn't watched the previous OVAs before diving into the anime series.
When will she tell Akko that she is Shiny Chariot?
Look at that fucking activity level
Man, I'd totally shop at AWESOME STORE.
It's an unfortunate truth that people who are held up as "Geniuses" like her will often get big heads, and think that they know the best course to take for everything. Diana's character arc will likely be addressing this, along with her slowing down to think things through and have more consideration for others.
Goddamn it. Reminds me of this really tired-looking/sounding Filipino dude I met in boot camp who wasn't even remotely phased during the confidence chamber (where you get sent into a room and you get tear gassed).
You can tell they scaled back a bit on the animation but there was still some pretty stuff in there.
Diana is already showing signs of coming around which is way earlier than i expected. Nothing will make me happier than seeing Diana's reaction when she finds out Ursula-Sensei is Chariot/sees her in action and figures it out for herself.
Yeah but she couldn't do it because her pride was at stake. She comes from a powerful witch family and to almost kill the butterflies AND one upped by the new girl? She's just gonna fill herself with resentment until Akko and her defeat enough monsters to form a bond.
Fugg, that's definitely going to happen.
Akko is going to sperg out about wanting to learn the cool magic like Chariot, but Ursula is going to be teaching her the basics, and she's going to call her lame.
It's going to hurt real bad.
>tfw this show is too comfy for shitposters to ruin
So how long till Diana get's corrupted by the forces of darkness that prey on her feelings of guilt, jealousy and insecurity in her inability to live up to her families names as Akko keeps acceling despite her own short comings
>Yeah but she couldn't do it because her pride was at stake. She comes from a powerful witch family and to almost kill the butterflies AND one upped by the new girl?
I think it's more that she almost made a huge mistake, and feels that revealing the precise details as to how her mistake was uncovered and corrected would reveal that she's a Shiny Chariot fan herself; something which would wound her pride and she just can't handle right now.
>She's just gonna fill herself with resentment until Akko and her defeat enough monsters to form a bond.
That's just plain wrong. Diana doesn't hold grudges, she knows she dun fucked up, and even if no one else knows or will acknowledge it, she'll likely retain a more positive view towards Akko here-on out.
WHAT'S THE SECRET, HIDDEN MEANING IN THIS THAT WE WON'T GET UNTIL THE LAST EPISODE
Didn't you see how the others were bullying Akko before Diana was introduced?
It doesn't help that Diana had completely shit on Akko's Shiny Chariot obsession earlier that day. There's no way that the others would do a complete 180 on Akko.
At this point, Akko is a complete joke of a witch. That's why her getting more and more respect from other witches will be a major driving force of the plot.
Damn I hope Diana gets shamed for something so her mindless free-thought-lacking, bitch scourges of 'friends' stop hanging with her. That way she could go around with Akko and co. and get some REAL friends.
And a retarded jap lesbgirl
I really appreciated this part.
i can cut it down to just her looking up, if that's what you wanted
THIS ANON! GIVE THIS ANON A MEDAL!
This whole ending is full of so many cute little stills.
>crossboarders in charge of anime
Large eyes are always associated with youth, while smaller, sharper eyes are for more mature characters. In this shot Diana is the brilliant mature senpai while Akko is the immature dork.
He's just being an idiot. I do think Diana needs better friends who are more suited for her. I don't even think she needs this type of people to validate her worth. Maybe she's got insecurities to battle.
Sucy seems to some smelling disgusting poisonous things.
Must be because she smells it all the time where she's from.
It's Trigger, of course they will, We even see a shot of Akko looking battle worn but as determined as ever. However, this is still a family show so she's not gonna get raped like Ryuuko or die of a broken heart like Luluco
If anyone can learn it then really the only objection they have to Akko is that she's being an obnoxious newfag. Luna Nova is basically just /a/, right down to the little girls with esoteric hobbies.
This, it hurts the most.
What a bitch who thinks she's better than everyone.
Someone needs to give her a bitchslap.
Yeah what the other anon said, nobody would believe her.
>Diana: It was Akko that did it, actually.
Teachers: Oh how noble! She's pretending to let poor Akko take credit, to boost her confidence! What a righteous, selfless person! You're too kind, Diana, you have a heart of gold!
Something like that. Diana realized it was pointless to try.
C U T E
Childhood is idolizing Akko
Adulthood is realizing Diana makes more sense
Akko a baka so she wouldn't.
>episode 1 airs
>AKKO IS RETARDED AND NEEDS TO BE BULLIED
>episode 2 airs
>DIANA IS A CUNT AND NEEDS TO BE SLAPPED
Why are you fags so negative?
Goddammit, this is hard. I wish I had a drawpad or something but all I have is this mouse.
just wait until that 3 month break between cours
