FF was a mistake, not even Rolling Girls tier, let alone compared to better shows like Kyousogiga. It didnt even deserve Fractale 883 sales, since Fractale was in objectively EVERY aspect superior - from animation, visuals, characters, music to story.

Thankfully, Handshakers this season shows how REALLY good original ambitious projects should be.

So instead of posting the amazing action sequence before this, or one of the well composed scenes that's a sort of visual metaphor, you pick this one to represent the show because it has two girls hugging, and you're a stupid fucking yurifag.

It is ironic that FF fags complain about Yuri on Ice selling, claiming it did because of fujoshis while reality is opposite.

Yuri on Ice was ambitious anime appealing to mainstream normalfags, executing well an extremely popular in Japan and World Wide topic of ice skating and portraying the scene quite well, also exxagerated. It had superb execution, was fun and succeeded for same reason Kimi no Namae does: it transcends the otaku stigma.

Meanwhile Flip Flappers is a niche title only for hardcore Otaku audience and REAL reason its only fans stuck with it as it aired was Yuri bait and sexualization of characters. It was not a deep show, did not had good plot, its visuals while ok were not enouth to make the show good.

So basically people who spend whole season posting about how they want to smell character butts and lesbian fanart are now buthurt an actual decent family friendly normalfag show sold better than it.

Flip Flappers is gay, dudes. Also get better at making webms. Making their resolution a bit bigger won't damage the quality in any discernable way.
>>
>>152388635
>Yuri on Ice was ambitious
YOI is fine and all but it what way was it ambitious? All it's sales are a result of pandering to Fujos.

>>152388679
What I will say in its defense is that it quits being pandering about 3 episodes in. That's when most fujos will be hooked. It's a very obvious marketing tactic, especially since they have the gayboy Victor naked in every other scene.

Well, that and that by the end, Cocona's driving motivation for the entire series appeared to be hanging out with her bestie.

For a show with teenage discovery and exploration as it's theme, they certainly didn't delve into the wants and desires Cocona had for her future. Most of the show was focused on her past.

Absolutely not.

The best scenes in Flip Flappers can't even hold a candle to the best scenes in Yuri on Ice. Not only was the animation in YoI smoother, but the choreography and cinematography were so much better it's not even funny.

And you can post QUALITY screencaps from YoI all you want. They knew how to budget their animation. They focused on making the skating scenes look their best, and of the skaters they focused their attention most on the two Yuris. Mappa blew it out of the water.

YoI was a good sport anime that happened to have suprise homo.

Fliflap was a good artsy anime that was really pretty.

Why are people mad at fujos for flipflap sales being bad? Is it because fujos didn't buy flipflap? If fujos bought flipflap instead of yoi, how would you know they are fujos? Who's to say there werent some that bought both? Why is there no blame on non-fujos for NOT buying but anger at fujos FOR buying something they like? I don't understand, is it jealously?

Really? That looked a lot closer to most Japanese horror movies I've seen with the faceless girls and the doll, and seeing as the creators are Japanese, I'd say it was more just Japanese style than an homage to anything. Which scenes were copy pasted from western stuff?

>>152389950
>Why are people mad at fujos for flipflap sales being bad?
Stupid fanbase wars. I've heard YoI is good if you like skating, but I have no interest in that or fujo shipping so I didn't watch it. The anime isn't particularly offensive if it's not your thing. FF had really good art and animation and I liked the directing style a lot and sound cues. It sucks that it didn't make money, but now we know 3hz is a studio to keep an eye one. I've liked them since Sora no Method, but they really spread their wings here. This fujo vs yurifag shitposting is just fucking stupid.

Untrue, even relatively recently YuYuYu had a disliked writer, minimal advertising and was an original and it sold 12,000 BDs. Hell, even Izetta, which had a shit-tier director and went to complete shit half way through, sold 2500. People just didn't like Flip Flappers.

Personally I thought it was mediocre, better than some series this season for sure so I don't know why it flopped so hard, but that's the way it goes I guess. If I had to say why I personally didn't like it, I'd say it felt 'empty' and I just couldn't force myself to care about what was happening on screen even though I tried.
>>
>>152390249
Lal'c was just as good as Nono, unsurprisingly so since their relationship made the show. Nicola and Casio were interesting for the little space they were given. Only Thyco was somehow bland.
In general Diebuster didn't have many characters, but the character drama was top notch. Unsurprisingly, coming from the guy that wrote Utena and FLCL.

>>152390374
Takahiro writes Majikoi and Akame ga Kill he's not exactly disliked it unknown, Izetta had advertisement from War Game

>>152390345
Fuck off. Papi and Coco are terrible main characters, only waifufags try to deny it and they're treated like sub-humans for a reason. Their actual personalities were never the high point of FF, because it's the exact same 'genki weirdo autist meets shy introverted teenager' shit everyone's already seen a million times by now. It was moreso in the exploration of the world of Pure Illusion and the way the visuals and environment reflected their psyche in a surreal and appealing fashion. Once all that shit went out the window people were unable to ignore how bland and shitty the characters themselves were the vast majority of the FlipFlap circlejerk effectively disowned the latter half of the show.

>>
>>152390345

That's a cool detail that I missed. Thanks for that hint. I'll probably go speed rewatch to get the rest.

I suspect that how much someone enjoys little puzzle boxes like that is probably going determine how much more they like a heavily symbolic show like Flip Flappers than a more straightforward but more character-focused drama like Yuri on Ice.

Not him, but FF was great for that. Not many shows do the whole visual symbolism thing well. It's either way too overt, or haphazard because it looks cool without any sort of meaning. Putting the character's emotions and thoughts through in the visuals (in a visual medium) is great.

I'm going to stop responding now, because despite being a complete fucking idiot who doesn't have anything even resembling a point, you seem really eager to pretend to be knowledge about anime production while pointing out common knowledge that everyone knows and treating it as a revelation by interpreting it in the stupidest way possible.

It will never happen, and the episode he directed for SD was already leagues above the mediocrity named Flip Flappers.

>>152388013
Flip Flappers was destined to sell poorly. It didn't have any draw for otaku and the final product was clearly rushed. I think if it had more focus and funding it could easily have been a commercial success, but I'm guessing it was too experimental to garner significant investment.

Is flip flapper actually entertaining or is it just bad magic girl lesbians with decent animation like PreCure?

Yuri on Ice would've been quite a bit more tolerable if they didn't decide to hold the faggot showdown in the end, and killing off J.J., who was the most likeable character in the show. They made the only two het males seem as losers and cucklords, while the gay parade had it's day.

Nothing against gays or people celebrating sales, but if this kind of politically correct propaganda appears to be a good show, then you might actually be worse than the pathetic /u/ crowd.

>>152390374
Christ, it was a few years ago now but Symphogear, which if anything was more experimental and left field than Flip Flappers between the over the topness, video game inspired fights and literal karaoke fueled combat, sold 5000 copies in it's first season.

>>152388328
It's not even the fujo's fault if yuribait doesn't sell. Male otaku should have bought dvds instead of trying to smear cum on the hand of an underage idol.
>>
>>152392841

For the fisrt When it's two girls bouncing around in actually-not-so-random universes, it's pretty damn entertaining. If the show had more episodes or had revealed it's narrative turn earlier, I think the rising action and climax wouldn't have felt so compressed.

The core story of 2 friends trying to get out of a bad situation is fine though. The way the setting is handled was original enough for me.
>>
Why are people so obsessed with sales? Just enjoy what you like and everthings fine. Its not like any show is worse because it sold less. Its just less popular in the general public.
>>
>>152396972
Because if you watched something that isn't being bought a lot by other people and thus has really low chances of getting any kinds of continuation since it's unprofitable, it means that you wasted your time, which means that you're a total fucking loser.
Whereas if you watched something that was bought a lot or somehow was profitable enough in another way to get more content of it means that you're having fun and aren't sad, which means that you're not a total fucking loser.

That's why the real little kids who watch DBS and Pretty Cure and other little kids stuff are the only winners, because they keep getting content made for them, whereas angry teenagers and depressed pseudo-adults can do nothing but screech at each another.

Its been 3 weeks. It's at 65k now. Will probably end up somewhere 65-70k.

Because if you had even a modicum of maturity and objectivity, you would realize YOI earned those sales and isn't bad just because it's gay and aimed at women. It absolutely nailed the characterization and relationship dynamics that the audience wanted without halfassing it (too much), you can feel how much the creators love the sport and the series, and it actually took risks, broke genre conventions (both sports and BL), and that is something the industry sorely needs.

It's too bad about Flip Flappers, but don't act like YOI's sales are undeserved. It wasn't perfect, but it did something different, did it with passion, and zeroed in on a ripe market at the right time and got rewarded for it.

>not about gay romance theme.
But it is a gay romance, and love literally is the central theme of the series, and that's exactly what makes it NOT pandering. It's integral to the story and character development, and is no different from any other romance sub plot in anime. It just happens to be between men. Even the blatant nudity/manservices scenes end up being recontextualized with a plot twist to give them real purpose.

But this is /a/ and to idiots on here literally everything gay is fanservice and pandering no matter how seriously it's taken.
>>
>>152390374
I think it was partially the art. Flip Flappers had an offbeat and unattractive art style for a lot of people. It had great animation (towards the beginning it was fantastic) but the character designs were simple and, in many peoples eyes, ugly. It just wasn't a show that attracted a lot of people that go for CGDCT type of shows. Yuri on Ice obviously had production/animation issues, but its artstyle and character designs were very attractive to its audience and screenshots of them being hot/cute brought people in immediately.

As long as it's not Hand Shakers shit, it doesn't really matter. Hell, Yuri on Ice's art style did it a lot more favors than Flip Flappers. Also stop the "nip yurifag" meme.
>>
>>152406226
That's because nip yurifags don't exist. Not that male otaku aren't into some girl on girl action but there is no yuri "fujo" equivalent in Japan.
>>
>>152406423
I think it's more due to the fact that the fandom is segmented (and very picky) about what they want yuri to include.
>>
>>152406816
There is no evidence such a base exists, and if it does, it is very small.
>>
>>152407062
Yuri Hime just switched from bi-monthly to monthly, some semblance of a fanbase must exist. Although I do agree that it's rather niche.
>>
>>152407182
There are lots of niche fanbases in the anime community. I mean "yuri otaku" don't even get surveyed or acknowledged at all unlike other like otome, bl, military or train otaku. But "yuri fans" aren't nearly big enough to make a real hit. So appealing to them doesn't really matter much in the context of sales. If anything, in terms of anime sales, "yuri fans" peaked and are on a decline. So the idea that Flip Flappers failed because "it failed to appeal to yuri fans" is laughable when it failed likely because it did appeal to yuri fans instead of other, larger, groups of male otaku.

"Yuribait" isn't a thing. Fujobait is a thing because the BL industry is huge and longstanding and frequently surveyed as a demographic group. (That is growing) There is no such lucrative group of yuri otaku. Not that Japanese men don't watch lesbian porn or whatever, but the idea of "yuribait" is a stupid one to apply to a Japanese fanbase because no one is trying to get an audience that doesn't exist. Lesbian fanservice is a totally a thing and even common, but it's not really about getting "yuri fans" like fujobait is specifically for tapping into a huge market. Which is why comparing the two makes no sense.
>>
>>152408497

Yuri has almost nothing to do with the fact that FliFla flopped.

It flopped because the storytelling is difficult to follow and the character design puts people off at first glance. That's basically it. If you can actually read Japanese and see what 2ch and all the cancerous matome blog users were saying at episode 1 you'd find "I don't get it, dropped'. "Wow girl looks so ugly, dropped."

These are the same retards that also exist on /a/ that think re:zero is a storytelling masterpiece and generic LN character design #5234123412 is the best anime has to offer.

Also, fujos don't really consider the quality of the anime that much. They want to buy the most popular fujoshit every season just like girls like to buy the most popular brands of clothes every season so they fit in. They have always had a habit of spending money for fun and basically every season there will be a fujoshit that sells for about the same.

Niggers, no one gives a fuck about Flip Flappers. Do you know what that show even is? It is an oldfag show. Only oldfags like Flip Floppers. No one else gives a flip about it. No one cares about traditional animation, and fanservice of lolis is icky and gross. Fuck off with your "fun" shows. It doesn't even do metacommentary on its genre like OPM, so the show is literally pointless. It is just a silly, fun, traditionally animated adventure. Who gives a fuck about that sort of thing? Only oldfags who want to relive the feelings of other shitty oldfag anime like Gurren Lagann or Princess Tutu. GTFO oldfags. Your time is over. We got rid of the loli board years ago for a fucking reason. Your shit is no longer allowed or tolerated. You are outcasts here. No one wants you, no one likes your show. Just leave.

I thought about it but all the confirmed adaptions probably won't top its sales. So maybe an orginal.
OP better prepare for more autistic rage.

Except Yurikuma was explicitly about romantically involved females, and was also try too hard to be abstract while FF wasn't actually about gay females (don't let the yurifags fool you, they're never right about anything) and had a clear vision with it's symbolism and themes in each episode.

There's definitely a yuri fanbase in Japan. They just had a doujin event last weekend. The difference between them and fujos is that pretty much all the girls are fujos, while only a few like drawing cute girls kissing. There's also a lot of people that just enjoy cute girls being cute together. Screaming that all girls need to be rubbing their vaginas together and shitposting threads to death online because muh real yuri is very much a western only thing.

it's pretty easy to pick and choose your sakuga anon

FF was beautiful, but YOI was by far a better all-rounder. Even FF faggots can agree the story fell flat on it's face after Episode 9. I like both for different reasons, but you have to be retarded to not see that YOI had far more mass appeal.

It is hyped for the homo, but it really is the rest of the show (writing/music/characters/sport) that makes it objectively good. It's no masterpiece, but neither is FF.

So what you are saying is that it didnt cater to two different types of retards?
