Akko a good girl. Stop the teasing.
I think we can all agree that Ursula is best girl
Ignorant akko is actually the worst. She's also too loud. Glad Diana is there to remind akko that being a witch is a culture that needs to be respected and not something for fun.
literally cultural appropriation
Akko's just a friendly person. She is passionate about Shiny Chariot.
Diana is just a buzzkill. A killjoy, and she's too serious and pretentious. Nobody likes killjoys.
>autistic namefag forcing fanbase wars
I swear to god if Sucy wins another poll I'm done with these threads
Why? Sucy really is the best. Don't hate on people just because she's great.
I want to protect that smile
She just wants to be like Shiny Chariot. Is that wrong? I mean, can't you let her dream? Why did Diana had to bitch at her about Shiny Chariot like that?
No worries anon, Amanda will surely win.
She reminded me of Nono in this shot.
Shiny Chariot doesn't even wanna be shiny chariot and akko can't be shiny chariot if she can't into basic spell casting. She just tries to cast it with her shitty japanese which is the equivalent of a white guy saying "me no speako englisho"
and she said almost nothing to them the entire episode.
As far as I can tell Diana just leaves them to their devices.
She hasn't shown any hime-sama personality flaws. Hell her only mistakes this episode was attacking the chrysalids, and getting flustered by her pose calling her a hero when she's trying to set the record straight
DIANA ONLY HAS ONE VOTE WHAT THE FUCK
I've spent the past 5 minutes trying to think of something funny to say along with this image but couldn't come up with anything, so I'm just gonna post it.
>the guy that gave her that one vote
This episode just made me like her more.
>When you Shiny Arc but she's still suckin
knowing how much of a cunt she is, she probably has like 5 of them
>diana bullies akko too hard
>wants to make it up to her
>gives her the premium chariot card
>akko thinks the world of diana "oh how could you give me something so precious"
>diana walking away mutters under her breath "i have 4 more"
>akko still treats her like a gracious god who parted with something precious just to make her feel better
god i hate diana the cunt
too bad it won't happen
now get out
I got it bad, got bad, got it bad, Im hot for sensei
this is what happens when you ban all the casuals and only let the sicko's that have been here forever stay
we have no more innocent redditors and normies to ask simple questions and drown out all the been-here-for-10-years sperg posts
Boy these are lewd
She didn't seem interested in the credit at all. In fact, she was off-put by undeserved praise several times throughout the episode.
It's like a mid-level artist having a layman tell them "you draw really good." It comes off as patronizing to be praised that way when you know how far beneath the actual masters of the craft you are. Just like a master artist could tear your "good drawing" apart, Diana's aptitude for magic is still far below her goal. Platitudes and headpats probably come off to her as insulting more than anything.
But she's also a good girl that knows better than to argue with an educator, especially over something as petty as "wow you dun good kid." She respected her elder and removed herself from the situation like a proper lady
you know exactly why this is don't make me say it
>She didn't seem interested in the credit at all.
She didn't seem interested in setting the record straight either
>But she's also a good girl that knows better than to argue with an educator,
She already did this very episode in a incredibly condescending tone
She reminds me of my roommate in college. An actual autistic who went into a film program thinking it would be EXACTLY like the set of Star Wars and he'd get to become his own George Lucas. I think he dropped out after a semester.
tv Akko really nailed that sort of personality to a T. It makes me wonder if the director or scriptwriter had a similar experience with one of those folk in their own life.

best lwa boy
>because she memorized yu-gi-oh cards!
You shitting on animal cards?
Also how the fuck is she supposed high school magic physics when she's never learned elementary
she's the patrician's choice for best girl
I collected baseball cards as a kid, I retained a shit load of the info on those cards. I can list off a ton of players and stats from memory
this happens to a lot of kids who collect cards.
Because she's a japanese girl whose comprehension of western culture and witchcraft in general both begins and ends with SHY KNEE CHERRY AUTO and now finds herself as an international student in a strange school where she's an outsider that's behind everyone else. She can barely communicate with others without offending them or making them hate her and knows nothing about her environment except that it's where her hero came from.
She can't afford to really be picky about companionship at this point. If she was left alone, she'd probably kill herself. At least Sucy is racially similar so there's some comfort there.
so how will Akko react when she finds out Ursula is Chariot.
>Shiny Chariot? Shiny Chariot. Now that's a name I've not heard in a long time.
She aint perfect but Diana's TV counterpart seems much nicer.
She won't believe it at first but ursula likes Akko and will be a little persistent, then they'll do stuff together not sexual like harry potter magic world stuff jesus christ get your fuckin mind outta my asshole
>instead of training to overcome this she buys a fucking magic kit online and begs daddy to send her to witch school
Yeah, it's not like you go to school to learn and train or anything. I mean she should obviously have trained herself in something she doesn't know how to do before going to the place that teaches it. That makes perfect sense.
Can a kind anon make a loop of when Akko is rocking back and forth next to her cat
Well, the second episode kinda sucked.
It wasn't horrible or anyhtring, just a bit too predicable thus boring.
Akko is too retarded.
Also, western magic tradition was founded by Hermes Trismegistus, who got philisophy form Plato, but magic from Persian sources as europeans were of the "suffer not witch to live" mentality long before coming of christianity, so the real originators of magic in the west would be some heretical zoroastrian mystic whose name we don't know.
I hope the deliver on the reveal. It has the potential to be amazing
Was Lotta fucking reading Nightfall by Asimov? That's some dark shit Lotte...
I just noticed that Diana has a copy of the card with her despite the fact that Lotte was last seen holding it. Lotte neither drops nor hands the card off, Diana just suddenly has one of her own. She also doesn't even look at the card to read the spell from it.
I think you're right. She had her own card with her and already had the spell memorized because she spergs out about them as hard as Akko does.
Did she really just apologize to her for slavery?
>We get an entire six months of this show
God bless Japan
God bless Trigger
Is this just retelling the events of the movie? Or a prequel to the first movie? Why should I care, I already saw how she learned to fly and became the hero who saved everyone.

This is my wife. Please say something nice to her!
She's clearly able to use magic, so why shouldn't she be there? I'm sure her parents still paid.
That's not nice.
is this the only fanservice scene of lotte?
actually forget Akko's reaction. What's Diana gonna do when Ursula is outed
Also witches usually learn how to ride a broom from their parents. Mudblood is probably the first to have that problem.
Why they don't have a big ass sign inside of the tower that says "DISCARD YOUR FUCKING SALT"? That's the real whodunnit.
im not wasting time watching the same shit twice. it wont even be as well animated as the movies anyway.
blow it out your ass you house nigger
I want to see Akko tease Diana with her exposed thighs and flashes of her panties until Diana snaps, takes Akko into her room, throws her on the bed, strips hers and ravage her like an unchained African lion.
We got loads of Akko and Sucy butt shots. When are we going to get to see Lotte's cute bum?
>DISCARD YOUR FUCKING SALT
No one carries around large quantities of salt or salty foods in the West, or for that matter anywhere
Unless maybe Jasminka with her potato chips but she probably had to take the vehicle gate as well because she's too fat for a broom
>>against common sense and 500 years of expert analysis it turns out that our heroine was actually a zoological and botanical expert because she memorized yu-gi-oh cards!
Did you even fucking watch the episode?
The person who was actually examining the tree wandered off, leaving an inexperienced teenager who'd been told all her life she knew what was best to try her own fix, which just exasperated the problem. She then almost made things even WORSE, but was stopped because, yes, memorized trading cards. Trading cards based upon the experiences of the person who was actually professionally examining the tree, and had prior experience with the particular problem.

IT KEEPS HAPPENING
Is she Chariot in disguise?
>this far into flip flappers we had all the hype of episode 1 and episode 2 and we had no idea what was in store for us with episode 3
if i collected all the amorphous i would wish that trigger made flip flappers instead of little witch academia
I don't even think salt is a universal purifier in Western magic and that's just TRIGGER being silly.
>No one carries around large quantities of salt or salty foods in the West
>Brined foods like ham, corned beef, bacon and sausage
Akko's pickled plums was a personal jar too, not full sized.
>Akko is the kid that takes the shit written on normal Yugioh cards seriously
What's the name of the magical spell that causes this?
What if Akko can use high level magic because she is stuck in a time loop where she repeats her school days hundreds of times over with her magical ability carrying over each reset? Some time in the near future a demon sealed inside the headmaster breaks free and goes on a rampage, but before getting killed at the stroke of midnight Akko is transported back to day 1 of school. After asking the teachers for information, she is told that it must be the effect of the Philosopher's Stone. She uses this to her advantage in order to solve the mystery of the threat and overcome it. After going through enough loops to obtain enough information and power to neutralize the threat, she seeks out and finds the Philosopher's Stone hidden in a secret room through a hidden passage in her room. There she sees an older version of herself who tells her that she must destroy the stone in order to be free from the time loop, but if she fails then she will take the older Akko's place in the room while the stone chooses a different past Akko to affect and carry over her accumulated potential to, but not memories. Fortunately Akko is strong enough this loop to destroy the stone. Afterwards, due to her looping she has gained enough skill to graduate in only a year, and she leaves the school with Diana. Together they live together in an apartment in the city where Akko has become a prestigious Mage Consul while Diana becomes a famous singer.
Did anyone else really love that Shiny Chariot had a card game?
That little touch, Akko's memorization of the descriptions and monsters really made me realize what this show is all about. They've taken the fact that it was a harry potter ripoff and accepted it, turning the whole series into a love letter to Harry Potter, Pokemon, Yugioh, and all the other 90's kid fandoms and the idea of holding onto that nostalgia
I know I'm being a huge faggot now but this gave me so much hope it's fucking unreal.
It's becoming increasingly more apparent that this was the right time to start reading the golden compass
yes, she has been since the first movie
I warned you bro. I TOLD YOU DAWG
Because guns are Illegal in Britbongistan, you autist. Harry used the telephone and drove in a magic double decker buss. I bet the wizards have magic bullets in their ars with wand bayonets. Imagine what a magic internet would do for research. PROBABLY THE SAME THING IT DID FOR NORMAL RESEARCH
I just wanted Akko to be happy.
Stop asking stupid questions.
>I don't even think salt is a universal purifier in Western magic and that's just TRIGGER being silly
They were bound to fold Japanese tradition into LWA lore somewhere. You probably know this but salt is meant to cleanse the unclean, i.e. purify, in Japan.
It's why sumo wrestlers toss handfuls of salt after they get in the ring.
A million Diana pics acquired.
I could never really understand the Harry Potter universe.
The magic world is supposed to be like a different dimension or something right? But even if it's a crime to use magic in our side there's still a lot of shit going on. Where do all the dragons and shits go when we don't see them.
How much does our side know about their side? I can't really see most world governments being happy with being looked down on by faggy wizards.
Also why do they purposely live a Dickenson life. It seems like they're purposely making shit harder for themselves with their magic than if they just used technology. Do they shun all technology? How do they feel about cell phones?
WHY DOES NO ONE USE THE TIME TURNER!
haven't had time to read it all yet but it looks like some solid pasta
you're gonna see it again in the future
Dunno about "Friends", but they already got the same focal point of Diana's antagonism out of the way this episode. So I think episodes here-on-out will already be at "Kinda-Friendly-ish-Rivals", though it depends upon how much focus Diana gets in coming episodes. Interviews have indicated that they want to give more attention to the ensemble in the TV series after all, with preview commentators noting that episode 3 apparently gives that focus to Amanda.
Yeah but it's canon that nobody knows or really cares where Shiny Chariot went 10 years later. Even if it was a dead cardgame it's likely that there's still some floating around.
;_; i just want akko to be happy
>collecting trading cards is such a 90's thing

pls make the bullying stop
Why is japanese girl studying magic in the UK?
Don't they have their own magic tradition in Japan?
>It seems like they're purposely making shit harder for themselves with their magic than if they just used technology. Do they shun all technology? How do they feel about cell phones?
I think Rowling said that most wizards are conservative (read: Luddites) and view technology with suspicion, they even raised a bitch fit about riding a train to the magic school apparently.
>WHY DOES NO ONE USE THE TIME TURNER
She done fucked up with that one, she tried to use it in that stupid play where Hermione is black and the story turned out worse than fanfiction.
I'm sure he could have "borrowed" a hunting rifle SOMEWHERE in the UK while living in that stupid tent for half a year.
Akko's a total westaboo.
Whether nips have their own magic in her world or not is irrelevant. She wants to learn SHINY CHARIOT'S Magic. And only studying magic at Luna Nova, where SHINY CHARIOT studied, will suffice for her.
>Akko's a magical girl not a witch.
She even has cards and a wand.
>she sees your wand
Okay so in the HP universe is their like a magic China? Because even the Russian and French schools seemed like they where practicing the same forms of mysticisms
Could someone travel the world and learn the ways of Taoism?
I want to collect all the Shiny Chariot cards.
not a different dimension. There are spells all around magical areas to hide them from muggle perceptions. In the case of mythical creature sightings, you forget that wizards can wipe people's memories, and have an entire office at the ministry dedicated to doing that to hide fantastic beasts and magical objects from muggles
At the very least, the british prime minister is made aware of the ministry. Margret Thatcher threw minister Cornelius Fudge out a window.
They shunt technology becuase they're still people and like to think themselves superior. IIRC Rowling said that hogwarts removed the electronics ban a few years back
as for the time turners, You have to realize that you can't go back and change things with a time turner. They follow stable time loop rules. whatever happened happened, which is why they're only used for things like fitting extra working hours into the day as opposed to stoping the rise of voldemort or grendlewald
potter was 95
If they maintain the whole hair glows red when using her magic thing I hope we get some nice shot where she's standing against the Sun/Magic explosion and has her her going wild
So is this going to be "Shiny Rod Asspulls: The Show"? Because fuck that. There's zero tension, zero build up - just waiting for problem of the week to be magically solved by a stupid rod.
I want Shiny Rod to disappear for at least half the season. Unfortunately Akko is too stupid to do any magic without it, so that's probably not going to happen.
Almost feels like One-Punch-Man except without the humour.
>You have to realize that you can't go back and change things with a time turner
Buck Beak says hello.
>They follow stable time loop rules. whatever happened happened, which is why they're only used for things like fitting extra working hours into the day as opposed to stoping the rise of voldemort or grendlewald
Or like making sure hypogriffs don't get executed. Also that's retarded.
If they ever bring time travel into LWA, I hope they don't fill it with that stupid tension Azkaban had where Harry and Hermione had to scramble to get back to the hospital in time.
>if we don't make it we're screwed
Bullshit, you've already accomplished your job and if you fucked up, just go back and do it again.
Ye such a lame world with only 5 continents.
you're kind of missing the point. It's not about the 90's it's about the fandoms the millennial generation grew up on. It's about the idea of childhood fandoms and not being ashamed of your nostalgia and loving the stories you grew up on
buck beak didn't die dumbass. Re-read or re-watch that shit
that's not how stable time loops work. If you saw it fail, you know for a fact you failed. Period. There's no trying again because what happened happened and what will happen will happen.
Stable time loops are single-timeline and deterministic. neither the past not the future can be changed

The six continet system is clearly the right one. Splitting euroasia into two halves is only done because Greeks hated Persians.
Is there a name for the outfit that goggles girl is wearing? It's pure sex.
Her bitch friends are toadies. If she told them to cut the shit out they would in a heartbeat. She's just as guilty. She may feel bad but until she actually does something she ain't better.
as long as everyone agree that they're only promotional merch and not be an actual game
the last thing these threads need are people getting autistic and whiny about game balance
Antarctica is a meme continent.
Also the slutterflies would freeze to death trespassing into arctic temperatures. So only 5 continents for them to travel to.
Or maybe Australia has fallen to the Emu hordes and was Atlantis'd as a last resort.
What is she gonna do? Ruin her friends' fun? They're not wrong about Akko. Akko's success is pretty bullshit. Doesn't mean they should be such bitches, but if Akko didn't have Shiny Rod, she'd just be another delusional failure.
>Antarctica is a meme continent.
Mercury is a meme planet, yet nobody denies its status as one.
>lotte becomes a slut
I feel like Hannah and Barbara would be really cute after getting the bitch dicked out of them.
>What is she gonna do? Ruin her friends' fun?
If her friends fun comes from picking on people YES SHE SHOULD RUIN THEIR FUN!
> but if Akko didn't have Shiny Rod, she'd just be another delusional failure.
If Akko didn't have the shiny rod Diana would be guilty of fairy genocide and expelled.
>implying she hasn't 20/20 vision and is only sporting glasses for the aesthetics
>implying these aren't MAGIC GLASSES that can do some sick Clark Kent disguises
Soon also Mercury will get Pluto'd.
How long would you realistically expect Sucy to live?
Even if she's intentionally built up resistance to poison through exposure, unless she has some sort of innate immunity those fumes are probably still doing a number on her vital organs and brain.
If she's still alive then she'll have cancer in her forties, or maybe even earlier if she considers radioactive minerals to be poisons
the other three are moons because they orbit other bodies rather than the sun itself. It's still many times bigger than pluto ceres and eris
Technically Antarctica is an archipelago under a large glacial ice sheet, also global warming will turn it back into islands in a few years anyways so this fight is pretty pointless.
So how will this card end up playing into the plot?
Diana has it from the time she was a Shiny Chariot fangirl and will give it to Akko as a present once she acknowledges her. Furthermore, it will have some super special spell which will solve whatever final problem there is in the show.
Jesus, that brings me back. Lillet and Akko are a little alike, I guess, but Diana and Amoretta really aren't at all.
The game was pretty fun but my strategy always ended up devolving into 'summon a bunch of dragons (unless the enemy is strong against Sorcery, in which case replace with fairies), stomp across the map flattening everything'.
>akko is an autistic shiny chariot fandrone
>forgets the magic words to activate the shiny rod until prompted
>then forgets them the next episode when she tries to show off
This is retarded.
Diana has that card and secretly uses the spell written on it pretending that it's one of her own so as to not reveal her power-level but Akko recognizes it and spergs loudly about it until everyone in the school knows that Diana loves Shiny Chariot, causing her to by horribly embarrassed.
Well she was falling from a great height and being chased by a giant chicken monster so I imagine she sort of panicked. Plus, maybe you have to be in a dire situation for it to activate
If you think about it, Diana has fucked up more times and caused more trouble than Akko did.
It'll save the school from the big bad magic incident
>some magic terror befalls the academy
>everyone beaten to a pulp, nobody knows what to do
>Even chariot/ursula cant help
>Akko doesn't give up, but is forcefully tossed aside, only to stumble upon that card
>She stands up, and with the help of her classmates and chariot reads the spell and successfully eliminates the threat|
>with that she realizes it never really mattered if she was a natchl born witch, but that through the power of heart and friendship she could make her dream, and everybody else's for that matter, come true
>it will have some super special spell which will solve whatever final problem there is in the show.
She didn't forget, she's just a retard at pronouncing magic words, as she said earlier in the episode. She even asks Diana if that was the correct pronunciation.
No, but maybe there will be an episode mimicking the second OVA to some extent, with her getting fed up with Akko's shit and dropping her for a while until they learn the usual friendship lessons.
>Implying it won't be Akko and Diana; who opens up about her Shiny Chariot fandom, who will defeat the final monster together
The golden text on the cards seems to all be spells.
>because she memorized yu-gi-oh cards!
Sad to admit, but I stopped playing Magic around Return to Ravnica and I'm damn sure if there was to be a long ass spell on these cards, I'd have it memorized still. You play that shit enough and there's no limit how much shit will stay with you.
So the final card doesn't even have a spell? What a ripoff.
I bet it'll be something corny like the writing for the spell will only appear on the card when the Shiny Rod is ready to go.
>Hannah and Barbara
Do you think they could be any less subtle with their references?
Maybe it only appears when the time right? None of the other cards this ep had spells either.
But she tried.
She tried to but she's an autist in her own way and couldn't get it out.
>Akko used Shiny Rod to save the day again
I feel like people making these kinds of complaints have completely the wrong expectations for this show to be honest. It's basically like your precure or ojamjo doremi style mahou shoujo so far where the protagonist will use their finisher to save the day each week as is typical in episodic shows with a child friendly focus.
>the dragon was described on the card the whole time
what the fuck Diana? You're a terrible fangirl
the dragon was the villain of the first movie. Dianna released it from a sealed casket during a dungeon crawl and didn't realize it ate magic
Akko is so boring, and generic. At least best girl is only losing by a few votes.
>there's no limit how much shit will stay with you
>the cheat codes for Vice City have been branded inside your muscle memory after all these years
You should try to meet up with your old gang though and do some small Draft tourney. I also stopped playing years ago, but one afternoon every 3 or so months is some great and inexpensive fun.
>mfw I am the one who most of the time opens the money cards
So what's the deal with the canon? Anyone know?
