Season 2 when?
What's the last type of drive? North has a loop, South has a chop, East has a curve. What does West have?
And how did Koyori return Death's last shot? I thought her shot made her curve drive literally move around back towards her away from Koyori. Did I misinterpret the scene?
>And how did Koyori return Death's last shot? I thought her shot made her curve drive literally move around back towards her away from Koyori.
Was it like that in the anime too? I read the manga and there was absolutely no way Koyori could have return Kururi's shot from that angle.
Seems like the other just said fuck it and went with more dramatic looking scene.
Well I dunno about the manga, it's only up to chapter 1 (?), but in the anime it looked like the ball was literally being sucked back towards her. If it were just a normal curve drive it wouldn't have been able to literally curve 180, but Koyori hit it like a normal ball. I was expecting her to basically dive for it to get contact, since Death could literally just let it run into the wall once it returned to her.
>I read the manga
Where though? The english manga is only up to chapter 1 and Sen doesn't have any raws.
...what the fuck? Do they hate money? Surely the money of gaijin at least isn't hated right? Or is it that the show flopped so bad that they decided to not give a shit at all?
How bad did it flop in Japan?
I fucked up and thought captain was South
The smug slash smile girl in EP1 is probably either South or West though, and I'm betting South is a chop simply because it's the opposite of North's loop.
I-I've got plot armor on my side, I'll invent new techniques that will let me turn the table. I'm sure of it!
>>no chapters 2-6
They'll do them too eventually, but the chapters covered by anime are the lowest priority, the new stuff comes first. There isn't much material anyway, the manga is currently at the Ace vs Bear match, so the next one after the doubles. There's also the one-shot to translate as well .
>Ping Pong don't have sex
You're just not paying enough attention.
Might just be a curve to the other side.
Might be a spin on the last axis. If a curve drive makes it spin horizontally and a loop / chop make it spin forward or backwards, the last one might make it spin sideways so as soon as it hits the table it basically fucks off to the side.
No, Kururi's curve drive makes it spin to the side on the way there and after you hit it on the way back. This one would move fairly normally on the way there but as soon as it hits the table it would basically make a sharp turn.
Think of what happens when you spin a basketball and let it hit the floor.
The curve drive is also not due to friction but to a property of fluid dynamics that applies force to a objects that are both translating and rotating on a perpendicular axis and is the basis behind airplanes flying, I got pretty damn pissed so bad at the explanation.
So Kururi's spins like A and the one you're imagining to be last drive spinning like B?
Which one is which again? I can't into bin bon.
God fucking dammit live
I want a new season ;-;
>Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume 1,407
Wait how is this not obvious.
North spins up, south spins down, east spins right, west spins left. I don't think it ever implied they were from those directions, it's literally just the direction their drive curves to.
How does she manage to be so cool yet so hot?
Sounds like a good recipe for best girl.
You forgot "smug as hell".
This is the face of a scorpion who knows no defeat. I bet she could beat Ace.
She probably can't, since her captain lost to ace
This is the future captain we're talking about, she can beat anyone.
Could you survive the desert heat by drinking her sweat?
I want to suck on her sweaty clothes like a baby on a pacifier.
I want her to pee all over me.
What kind of powers does she have?
Yes, but anons didn't put Ace in the OP so the thread died at 38 replies.
>I want to suck on her sweaty clothes like a baby on a pacifier.
>I want her to pee all over me.
Why do retards keep making bad stitches?
Priority was put on continuing where the anime left off and it'll be a couple months before we're caught up. Another group is working on 2-6 in the meantime.
7-11 was under autouploads. I just assumed all the batoto stuff was scraped right away and didn't check, but I guess not. I'll try to make sure it gets there from now on.
>Not enough people for the threads.
There's enough people when it is an Ace thread.
Why is anon so cheap? It destroyed all hope for season 2.
No but like
Look, mechanically topspin and downspin mean the ball acts completely differently. But a spin to the left or the right makes functionally no difference besides possibly forcing a backhand to return, it still does the twister to the side.
They could still use it differently. Kururi focused on making the ball fly off the opponents paddle after they hit it. The other Driver could have a drive that turns so much (in the other direction) it makes it hard for her opponent to even hit it in the first place. Or it could curve late like a baseball, and the Driver could alternate between straight hits and (reverse)curve drives to make it hard to tell where the ball will go.
The possibilities are endless with takkyuu, that's what makes it so tanoshii.
If it's the same team it might considering how the anime is sort of it's own thing and adds/changes a lot compared to the manga.
WAKE UP, ACE
Don't let this thread die.
Seaweed's power is just so fucking shit though compared to everyone else's. She's like a wannabe Akagi with a sometimes-gimmick for Ryuuiisou.
Hell Retard Master is basically a better Akagi who's also generally stronger but has no powers at all.
Mako is much cuter, so I like her more. Saki does have a problem similar to DB, where it's become the Miyanaga show with tagalongs.
A thread might not be able to sustain itself period.
Ace threads are statistically five times more active than other Takkyuu threads. QED.
Because neither the rest of /a/ nor Japan seemed to think so. It beat Flip Flappers and that's about it.
>not liking Ace
>Last thread 96% of anons said that Ace was best girl.
>Threads that start with "ace" or an image of Ace are 1400% more active than threads starting with Shakunetsu, Sweat or ping pong.
Why does this happen?
It's more that this thread is pretty close to another and people already discussed in the latter.
>tfw people don't really care to discuss latest manga chapter that much
Kumami was creepy as fuck, and she's going to take Ace's virginity soon.
The ace will stop her eventually. They need to build opponents as threats otherwise people will just think every enemy will just job.
But it's a sport manga and the MC's are ALWAYS THE UNDERDOG. WHY? It's so goddamn frustrating. That was probably the one thing that annoyed me about
Eyeshield 21, they were always the underdog. Not once did they have a game where they absolutely destroyed the opponent to show their newfound abilities. And I can't think of a single sports anime or manga that does have that crucial "yeah, they're actually better now" match to show their growth.
Saki does it quite a few times. Or rather, they generally have at least one tournament round where the MC team completely shitstomps everyone else to show that they're actually legit as fuck, it just so happens that at the National level EVERYONE is a fucking monster.
For anyone who didn't realize (like me), the chapters already are up on the secret club
also known as madokami.
It's...like here's the thing, it's not "serious" table tennis. It uses some terminology and real tactics, but it doesn't overly focus on it. It has fanservice (a lot actually) but the main theme is still TT and TT happens quite a bit.
There is a lot of ping pong, but they don't focus on entire matches but on over the top rally/match finishers.
I see. So is the series focus on the characters more than the competition or like what kind of series is it?
Besides PingPong the animation, I think this is the only other series that focus on the sport
That's great to hear. There are a lot of Tennis bullshit series with character that have samurai or powers and take advantage of that.
I guess I'll watch it on the weekend then. Thanks anons
I'll warn you right now - they have 'powers', just not supernatural one. Their powers basically come from making normal maneuvers like a chop extreme or shit like hyperanalysis.
Well, it's not a problem. Players tend to act a little on their games, and do extreme movements for a heavy chop in order to confuse the opponent. About Hyperanalysis I don't have a clue, I just hope it isn't some ultra shit Op skill
Had to look up who you where talking about, I completely forgot Scorpion wasn't her actual name.
Sasorida "The Scorpion" Sachiko
It's exactly like Smile in ping pong: the animation except not very OP since optimal moves are easy to predict.
I want to kiss Sacchan's belly.
I want her to look down on me
I want her to be captain and give me lots of training.
Don't worry about that until episode 7.
Evenif she's all sweaty?
He probably disregarded that one because it was too out of character with the ace losing right at the start.
Doujins are not canon in the end anyway.
Dude, this thing has been going on for years in the sadpanda community.
Chinks and gook are just like that, they don't give a shit about anything or anyone, it really makes me wonder why they even bother translating stuff, when they have zero sense of unity over something universal like porn.
The very fact that she's the ace proves she can't lose. I have no idea why everyone is so deluded.
She lacks motivation though, the team will already win since one jobber won and she trusts her bitch will definitely win as well.
And now she has to deal with finding out that her old bitch is a lying bitch.
Don't fall for anon's lies.
The only girl she is allowed to lose is her wife.
It happens when some girls are popular but with people who eventually move on to other stuff, while others are less popular but with more passionate fans.
The manga is only bullying her now.
Koyori is the father, but Agari wears the pants in the relationship
outside of the ping pong table.
We know who is the most liked girl here, but who is the less liked?
Wobbly girl seems to be the least posted post season.
She doesn't need a rise in skills. but the world rankings are not yet updated for her present skills, so she is still rising on those.
I'm a little confused. Is the OST coming out on the 24th the rest of the character OSTs or the background music from the anime? And are people just joking about something coming out on the 29th?
The ace, I was just checking if we all knew that already.
I'm an idiot, need to pay attention to dates more or kms.
>"Last" and "Ace" in the same post.
What is wrong with this child?
Beware! This doge is actually a dangerous pervert! Do not believe her lies!
At this point we can safely assume Koyori has a fetish for grinding her crotch against things in public places, and she does so in a premeditated way, as you can tell by her silly and/or contradictory excuses. The evidence is all there.
First time was when her doggy doll "accidentally" fell at the other side of the gate. Instead of calling someone over or just waiting a couple of minutes for the gates to be opened, she tried jumping over the gates, according to her. If you pay attention though, she is holding the doggy already when Agari finds her. How did she get the doll from the other side if she couldn't get down on her own?
The second time she tried to pass it off as cute autism as she rubbed it out a little bit in the middle of PE class.
Then she claimed to be trapped inside the bathroom stall because the lock was broken. It's a pretty big coincidence that the lock broke just as she was using the stall (or else she couldn't have gotten inside in the first place) but let's say this is a believable story, why does she say she thought she was doing something wrong when Kururi finds her? Is it wrong to try to escape when you're trapped? Or is that she letting out more information than she intended to?
Finally, her most audacious move so far was coming up with some seemingly nonsensical training as an excuse to rub her crotch against the nape of Agari's neck in front of the whole club. Sure, she couldn't rub it to her hearts content at that situation, but it's the doki doki that matters.
Because physical exercises are much more sexual than intellectual exercises. And 1 on 1 matches are more sexual than 4 way matches.
Hoku means beam.
And ufufu means mwaha.
I meant the whole "death" thing with Kururi.
Also didn't they tanslate one of Hokuto's lines as "Karma's bitch" or something?
You mean Crunchy for hiring fucktards. Just look at Gabriel Dropout, it's insufferable, I can't watch more that 4 minutes without pausing and closing the episode. Wich is a shame because I like the show.
Sorry for being such a newfag but what's the actual story behind Daiz? I've only seem memes about him and invocation rituals. What did he do? Is he associated to Crunchy? Sorry again.
Owns nyaa and encourages the memecartel of subs aka Commie-tier subs full of memes and mistranslations and defends these people for localizing and giving them blue status despite being shit.
Wait for the next Gabriel DropOut episode and go into their threads, guarenteed shitposting and screaming about Daiz and the memecartel. Also >>153541204.
I don't even mind commie tier subs
I mind literally every sub group being like that and Daiz basically having a fucking fit if people not part of his circlejerk try to join in
Didn't [Doki] tear them a new asshole so hard they're banned to this day?
March 10, says right here
They use the superior sortable date format YYYY/MM/DD, not the most illogical one.
No, that can't happen, don't fall for anon's lies.
"Hokuhoku" is an onomatopoeic word used to refer to something warm and steamy, usually due to being freshly baked. For example: "hokuhoku no pan" => bread, straight out of the oven.
Hokuto is always steaming, hence why she's going hokuhoku.
Already translated, currently going through typesetting. We
try torelease every monday.
I just want to have it a little more. Another takkyuu thread won't be there for long too.
It's 5 pm here. I know that by tomorrow it won't be alive. But anyways, sweet ace dreams anon.
Yes, it did. The manga is selling a little more and we are expecting for the character songs to make a little more money, but that's all. They really should have gone full merch and sold ping pong implements or shit like that.
It was okish. Can't really stand how retarded they made the MC look. Crippling social anxiety, autistic tendency to ping pong, and the down syndrome look on her face. It was a bit off putting in massive doses that the anime gives you. The last few episodes also got boring and wasn't a fun way to end a season.
You are wrong. The climax was the Kururi fight, that should have been obvious. The last couple episodes were a really nice way to wind down the anime and the impromptu-tourney made the last episode really fun. As far as adaptions of on-going manga at least, the ending was really good.
Also Koyori is cute but I can't really fight you on that.
that's not enough ace.
this thread is officially dead.
I hope the bullying arc is over soon. He didn't need to do so drawn out and over dramatic if he just wanted an overpowered anti-ace character. Just show her beating the adult japan/world champion or something.
Now we will be tired of this pairing when the revenge match happens by the end of the manga with the ace already the japan/world champion.
New Game's getting a season 2 almost a year after release. What were the sales/advertising for that compared to Shakunetsu?
If the team would lose otherwise then yes, otherwise not in the first try.
