Upcoming episodes speculation thread
What has been confirmed in the upcoming episodes:
3: Don't stop me now
>Broom race. Amanda's group introduction. Akko gets the cursed broom.
>Man in suit possibly introduced
>Storyboard: Masayuki. Animation director: Ikarashi Kai, Kengo Saito
>Lotte episode about her favorite vampire romance novel. NightFall was featured in the foreshadowing montage. NightFall has been running for over 350 years so the writer is likely a vampire.
>Storyboard: Kazuya Tsurumaki
5: Luna Nova and the White Dragon
6: The Fountain of Polaris
>The Fountain of Polaris appears in both the foreshadowing montage and in Chariot's card game. The card game says that it's hidden in Luna Nova and that it will grant the power of the stars to witches of radiance.
Imaishi did storyboard for an episode. Yoshinari said that Imaishi's episode is funny, action packed and has really fast pacing. Yoshinari said in an interview that "it has as much stuff as 3 normal episodes put together *laughs*"
Episode 8 is a Sucy episode (via Twitter animator).
Thanks to the Anon for the translation/pasta.
>3: Don't stop me now
CAUSE I'M HAVING A GOOD TIME
to call it a random mess is objectively wrong
maybe you should pick a different show or read manga
Hopefully we'll find out.
>Episode 8 is a Sucy episode
I hope she fucks some shit up and is cute while doing so
the only thing the series relates to the OVAs are the main characters and school
that being said, they're still worth the watch but unnecessary to start the series even though there's only 2/25 episodes so far.
as you know, they're not that long and worth the watch since it became so popular for it to produce a series.
I don't know who diid this but the bullying needs to stop
I want to get drunk with Amanda!
After she turns 18
I say the Akko has to stop
I'm kind of just scared I'll see the few episodes out now, get too hooked on it, feel the need to watch the OVAs, because I can't wait until next week, and ruin the whole experience for myself.
Life is hard.
I mean you can safely watch both movies after episode 3.
By then all the characters from the OVAs have been introduced to the anime and since the OVA stories are self contained it doesn't matter when you warch them.
There is one thing that could potentionally be a spoiling something though.
I don't know why but I loved this shot.
just watch the OVAs first then
she'll drink you into ground, Anon. then probably proceed to stick her broom in places you wouldn't want.
>man in suit is Diana's brother or father
>dissuades her love for Chariot as a young girl; saying it's beneath the Cavendish family to associate with childish entertainment
>Diana is forced to comply and grows up bitter and apathetic due to her childhood hero being forbidden to even think about
>fucking cunt having fun with her friends
>i hate this place
>i wish i was back home watching my shiny chariot camrips
>why are we not allowed to wear panties here?
>why don't i have any friends
I'm afraid it is:
Why do Lotte's eyes change her boyish looks into that of a beautiful maiden
Anon. It's very rude to assume she's a mass murderous psychopath just because she's German.
>Luna Nova and the White Dragon
Didn't the booklet of the first OVA say that there was an idea about having a wizard academy that housed a white dragon, specular to Luna Nova's black dragon?
because you're possibly superficial and can't see someone's face behind their makeup, hair, glasses etc.
Amanda and Lotte is low-key best
>heart of gold
>hides power level
>canonically biggest breasts
>if she sings, she literally becomes the most op witch in the universe
>anons respond to lotte with glasses
>DISGUSTING BOY I'M NOT GAY WHO SAID I WAS GAY? YOU'RE GAY
>anons respond to lotte without glasses
Don't get me wrong, she's my favorite girl. I really liked her somewhat-boyish but still obviously female looks and I liked that she looked just as beautiful without them but in a different way.
pick any one. They're all great.
I'm partial to Ursula and Akko myself
and it's even longer now too
>Constanze Amalie von Braunschbank-Albrechtsberger
i found this but have no idea the context of it is
>everyone staring nervously at Lotte
Say hello to my wife everyone, we just recently got married!
Still waiting on more polished artwork of Diana in a bikini
When was that variation on the uniform introduced? What happened in the scene it was introduced in?
Looks like you found your context.
It's kinda depressing the amount of people in these threads who haven't watched the OVAs, it's not like they're long or that there are more than two of them...
>This retarded OP faggot and his bullshit prick again
Fuck off boyfriendfags. You already have many romance anime this season. Stop fucking tarnishing LWA with your romance bullshit.
Not like he wouldn't be aware, he fucking browses 4chan.
Let me handle the questions for the Trigger Q&A so we look like we know our shit. Here are my suggestions:
>LWA TV's staff features a lot of young animators. I remember reading someone say that the average age of the animators that worked on episode 1 is 20 years old. I also saw some pictures that were posted in a Web NewType and they all looked pretty young other than Imaishi and Sushio. Is hiring a lot of young people deliberate? In a way similar to the KyoAni system of building up and nurturing young talent?
>Where did the initiative for the LWA TV show came from? Did Trigger approach the sponsors or was Trigger asked by Toho/Netflix?
>I remember hearing You Yoshinari say in a convention that working with Koh was scary. How was the experience of having collaborate with episode 2 of LWA?
>Is director Yoshinari still bullying Sushio because he keeps drawing everything like KLK?
>Not LWA related but a few months ago mr. Wakabayashi said that Imaishi was working on a TV series in the vein of Gurren-Lagann. The recent NewType article made it sound like it is getting revealed this year. Is it somehow related to the fact that 2017 is the 10th anniversary of Gurren-Lagann?
>to call it a random mess is objectively wrong
Not that anon, but by saying that is like saying the second half of KLK was well written and directed.
Imaishi can't direct, not long series. He's decent with shorts, but He's an animator at his best.
>3: Don't stop me now
If there is any, ANY, tiny reference to Queen, I will explode.
Are we just describing posts now? I don't know how to respond to this so I guess I'll follow suit.I'm not sure I can make sense of your description so here's my stab at it:
My first post was a reply to your initial post, telling you how to figure out where it's from, and assuming you must not have seen it since that can be the only explanation for you to not know.
Then you replied to my post claiming you didn't remember the scene it comes from.
Then I referred to a post you made in reply to another anon who had told you it's from the second OVA, where you mentioned the scene you claim to have forgotten and asked if the image came from the scene after that.
No, it came from that scene.
And just for further clarification, to stop this continuing snowball of confusion you seem to be stuck in, that's not a keyframe from the scene, it's a model sheet for the outfits. It's not uncommon for it to reflect the mood of the scene even if it's not literally depicting a moment from it.
Good questions, I'd definitely want to hear answers to those. Especially the last one.
However as Tattun said on twitter, he wanted to keep it casual. I wonder how it will turn out
But imagine Akko going to town between her legs, and all Diana can do is grab and kick the sheets in pleasure, or sometimes try to push Akko's head off because she's overwhelming her.
Koh and Sushio questions are casual enough. First could be casual with some reworking. Last question is probably the hardest to ask, it's gonna get an evasive answer no matter how you put it...
Let's just hope we can be on a, "Don't ask, don't tell" policy when it comes to that. And if that fails, tell him we'll be sure to buy lots of BDs and official merch once it comes out.
That artwork is not canon. A girl who blushes like this cannot be top.
I don't think you're supposed to take her seriously.
But if her nickname bothers you that much, just call her by her full name Atsuko.
That was bad, anon.
Delete that post.
Wrong about what?
I said I didn't know how to reply to this post >>152451876 because it's barely a response, it's just an incorrect description?
>you were referring to my initial post
When? In this post >>152451795 ?
In that post I was referring to this post >>152451648 and this post >>152451549 which aren't your initial post, that's this: >>152451412
So no, I didn't refer to your initial post in my post. I did reply to your initial post earlier on, to which you replied, then I replied, and then responded with this nonsense post, in which you continued:
>[you were also referring to] a reply from an anon clearing it up that it's from the 2nd OVA
I didn't, both the posts I was referring to were posts made by you, it's pretty clear since you don't use your shift or capslock key, resulting in lower case "i"s in every post you've made, which are the only posts I've replied to or referred to.
I don't care for this. Please ensure your posts make sense if you don't want replies that are walls of text trying to decipher what the fuck it is you're saying.
This mostly, bet let's be real for a second.
Where the fuck are we honestly expected to watch it, or any anime for that matter?
They're not even releasing it to us, we're not their market. It's not even in our language. It's not on American TV, so they're not missing any ad revenue.
They're not losing shit when watch it free, only understanding it because someone else translated it for us. If anything we should be paying subgroups that turn the incomprehensible babble into we can appreciate.
If a studio wanted to make money off of the English speaking audience, they should release it subbed or else not bitch about it.
Best witch as best Mighty Failure 9 Call-that-should-have-been.
I was for Diana at the start when everybody else on /a/ was a Sucyfag or Akkofag
Episode 3 "Don't stop me now"
From Professor Ursula who has taken the lead role of Akko who can not do even the basic magic, Akko receives his own HOUKI. I am pleased to fly the sky with this, but it also does not react with HOUKI Pikli.
The traditional "Luna nova Cup HOUKI relay" to be held in such a situation. Join the baton in a set of three people and decide the winner. Akko who found the figure of Chariot in the photograph of that successive winner will decide to participate in the handicap without permission. A lot of rivals will be played in relays such as Diana at the top of the winning candidate, Amanda with confidence in flying magic, but Akko can win with HOUKI relay! Is it?
Translated by Google
I'm talking about pre LWA2 though, but Amanda was the popular new one of course
>Doki doki waku waku
what did she mean by this?
Thats a backwards Akko you fucking prick, stop posting it literally every thread. How many times do I have to tell you?
We have a responsibility anons. We gotta make this the bestt damn ama for Trigger.
第3話「Don't stop me now」
can anyone translate?
This would be perfect if Diana and Amanda were switched. Good taste nether the less.
Akko: the complete loser who was really the chosen one
Lotte: the caring redheaded friend
Sucy: the insane one
Diana: the cunt
Hanna and Barbara: her two interchangable cronies
Amanda: the one who's good with a broom
Constanze: the smart one.
Jasmika: the comic relief who's always stuffing her fat fucking face
Dunno anon, but I do know Its going to be a broom race episode. Excited to see Akko fuck up.
You need to repent and accept Ursula as best girl
Look at this witch
Screencap of Sucy wearing gas mask from Episode 2 near the start.
Sucy possibly hinted as being the next Trigger Girl?? Same eye color, but different hairdo from the 5th anniversary poster though.
>Me looking for reasons why Ursula is the best
... ON THE NECK
You seem to be thinking the end of Luluco was the start of a thing, it wasn't. It was a singular event just having fun creating a backstory for their mascot and not revealing that that was what it was until the very end. It doesn't mean LWA needs to become the backstory for another mascot.
Besides, the witches are Yoshinari's characters, Imaishi can't just do what he likes with them.
So, if we're getting 25 episodes of this, and we're talking about Studio Trigger,
how long until the madness and true plot kicks in and throttles this show into insanity?
I don't get it. Even as a joke, the notion that all shows they make should be the same as one show they made doesn't hold any water
It's getting annoying seeing it in every thread
Wait wasn't it literally confirmed that he's tied to Ursula's backstroy?
I mean he could still be related to Diana somehow since only Daina's father and Akko's bf were the only dudes in the spin-off.
I mean, there's only so far you can go with the current "lesson of the week" setup.
They got 25 episodes for a reason. There's gotta be some actual villain/major arc to the series at some point.
They have to reach an "ending" so they need something to raise the stakes.
Is it against the rules to wear underwear in the school?
>he wants just the same "monster of the week" style story for 25 episodes
>Not having things escalate naturally after we've gotten to know all the characters by introducing a main antagonistic force for the remainder of the series
This isn't a generic slice of life. this is Trigger.
>usual ADHD over the top randumb action series that Trigger usually do.
I don't have it on hand, someone post the clip of Constanze in the ship that transforms into a fucking mech.
This show obviously won't reach the blood, nudity and edge of Kill la Kill, but it is DEFINITELY gonna end up over the top.
mod the colors and she'll look like Sunset Shimmer
Over-the-top shit like that is fine because it's all in good fun and still fits the tone of the show.
KLK just went too far and I wasn't invested in anything that happened because all the characters were retarded and nothing was taken seriously.
>has all cards except for one premium card
>she owns 11 cards total
How does one play a two person card game with 11 cards? Actually, how was there a collecting craze when there's only 12 cards to collect? What kind of fad was this?
>Sorry for sit translation
Episode 3 "Don't Stop Me Now"
Ursula is willing to teach Akko who can't even use basic magic.
She gave a broom for Akko's pesonal use.
Akko was glad to be able to fly but it didn't work.
Meanwhile the traditional event, the Broom Race in Luna Nova Cup will be held.
A group of three people is going to get the victory with a baton.
Akko found Chariot in the picture of the successive winners
and decided to participate in the race without saying to Sucy and Lotte.
There are Diana who is the favorite for the championship,
Amanda who has confidence in her flying ability and so on.
Will Akko and others get win the race?
watch it be Shiny Chariot's manager
>Suddenly Ursula's story becomes Onizuka's
So, how many episodes until Ursula reveals her secret identity to Akko?
How long after that does Diana tell Akko how she used to love Shiny Chariot but then lost all hope in her, leading Akko to the deliciously uncomfortable situation of whether or not to tell her about Ursula?
How long after that
does Ursula die?
Or who knows? Gyaru cook and "I simply cannot believe my mother turned into my RPG companion!" are being made, so that shouldn't be too far fetched.
So, when episode 1 came out, did people talk about how Luna Nova is run by assholes?
>"They had to accept non-witch blood to the school because funds are low"
>This means that Akko has likely already paid for the schooling
>They go into the magic highway thing
>Akko literally can't cause she's not from a witch bloodline
>"If you don't make it to the opening ceremony on time, you're expelled"
They literally took the girls money, expecting her to not be able to even reach the school, then expel her for not having gotten there on time.
>Amanda next episode
Based best little witch.
I hope she wins the broom riding tourney
He literally asked western fans not long after the first episode how it was if you were able to see it. Someone said it wasn't officially out yet in the USA to which he said "able" in quotes.
How does one get into contact with a majo anyway?
It did need the money if you wanted it to be more than 20 minutes long and not suffer in quality. It didn't need the money in order to exist at all though it was happening either way with funding from Good Smile Company. Which was exactly how it was advertised.
The fact that it comes up in every thread now because "production committee" is the new first go-to buzzword for ignorant gaijin who have no idea how the industry works and think parroting other ignorant know-it-alls from here will make them sound informed.
>Im pretty sure paganism counts aswell
The idea that witchcraft and shamanism were the same thing in a late 19th century invention by a self-declared anthropologist named Margaret Murray.
Many pagan societies such as Romans, Hindus and Vodun practitioners were actually harder on purported witches than the Christians.
I wonder how much more popular Amanda will get after the next episode.
It's more like the other way around, it is usually brought up when people say dumb shit that has no relevance, like "SHAFT is going to go under after this" when they haven't even invested in a project.
>Sucy is laid back out of derision for the course material
>actually hyper fucking competitive, gets her bloomers in a twist underneath her deadpan glare
Sucy v Diana potions class episode when
>Episode 4 boarded by the director of FLCL
When are the other girls gonna throw Akko a blanket party?
When does Akko go full Columbine on Luna Nova?
I want to see her try and get wrecked by the first witch she tries to attack.
After that it's more blanket parties for her.
>"IF YOU SURVIVE WITCH TRAINING, YOU WILL BE A WEAPON. YOU WILL BE A MINISTER OF DEATH PRAYING FOR WAR."
>"BUT UNTIL THAT DAY, YOU ARE ALL WARTS. YOU'RE THE LOWEST FORM OF LIFE ON LUNA NOVA."
>"YOU ARE NOT EVEN HUMAN FUCKING BEINGS! YOU ARE NOTHING BUT UNORGANIZED YURI BATING PIECES OF AMPHIBIAN SHIT!"
>still using "We are number one" meme
Is this the thread where we post unrelated youtube videos?
Looking back they really did drop some hints of Constanze being cool with Sucy
Diana may be the superior witch but she is the inferior loli
i AM in a world of shit
>draw a 4 eyed ugly boy
>call it a girl
Why was this allowed?
Are you some kind of obsessive freak?
I want to imprison Yoh Yoshinari and make him draw Akko for the rest of his life.
>not only using the eyes and hair to differentiate charaxters
I'm impressed, Trigger
Huh, so sensei's natural hair colour is Red. I always thought Chariot was a kind of henshin for Ursula, but I guess her appearance now is the disguise.
