Hold on a second, I been in every single thread of this series since it aired, and I have never seen anyone "hating" it or even shitposting a thread about it, at least on /a/.
I think my Subaru has a problem. It's leaking fluids.
Any mechanic here?
I got the artbook, and these images are in there.
But in such a small resolution it's basically useless.
But I'm pretty sure pic related is an example of what when so fucking right.
Also the threads were pretty great
Meh storyline, meh characters, meh romance. I was looking forward to some actual romance in my mahou shoujo but the whole show was just so unengaging on all levels that it fell into rightful obscurity.
Literally nothing, are you some kind of faggot?
So, how do you suppose the presidents technology works?
His race can choose which possible branch to go down, and even send people through them (i.e. connecting the characters, or sending them back at the end of the show), but what exactly causes the branching?
At first I assumed they (at full power) could make literally anything that is possible happen. While I'm not that knowledgeable about quantum physics, as I understand, lots of absolute bullshit is possible, just stupid unlikely. So having that power would explain how they can perform magic like summoning drive shafts and breathing in space.
But when they go back in time to the origin of all of Earths branches at the end of the series, they are brought the the point just before life appears on earth. If branching happened due to natural randomness, they would have been brought back to the creation of Earth, not the creation of life on Earth. Also if it was from natural randomness, that would go against why he wanted girls who haven't chosen a path in life.
It all implies that the branching is caused only by life, which is supported by pic related. Perhaps physics is completely deterministic and what happens is the only thing that could happen, but life has a soul or something beyond that, making life (and it's free will) the only thing that causes different possibilities. Each of the timelines is based on free choices that they made, this is directly shown where Aoi and Subaru's timeline split based on which school they chose.
That makes sense and all, but in that case how do they use this to give them "magic"?
Am I to believe that every human has the possibility to not burn up at the surface of the sun if they believe and choose not to? Or is it a totally separate tech?
I'm still too stupid for this show, and no one will read this post anyway.
No, that's basically it. Life, especially humans, have a will that they can impose on the world. They have the possibility to become "anything they have the potential for". It's just that this potential is often much greater than we assume we have. Everything in life is a choice, from the words you speak to the food you eat to the relationships you make.
I like the quantum soul theory, that basically even in a deterministic universe you can never fully know what will happen, because everything is up to probability (Heisenberg etc etc). The infinite branches of the universe show every possible combination and every choice that can be made, and the tech puts them on whichever path they want or something.
Episode 3 is where the show is getting good.
>this potential is often much greater than we assume we have
To the point of flying through space, mind over matter I suppose.
I guess my problem was that I was thinking of it as "I can pick the timeline in which you choose to make me breakfast", but I guess it's more inwardly focused, like "I can pick the timeline where I do something I didn't even know was possible". He used the technology to unlock their potential, not let them actually make universe-altering choices.
>quantum soul theory
This is interesting and seems quite relevant.
Thanks for the reply anon, these threads always help me understand things.
Are your friends and family all nuns?
I'll give you my copy if you dress up as Minato and kiss me.
Whenever I think about Nanako my pants start to feel po-warm.
I liked this show.
Incorrect, nowhere has an opinion worth paying attention to
>What went wrong?
Not enough people watched it.
