Can we all agree that LWA is the worst anime airing this season, and probably the next season as well?

It is the only show I dropped this season. I didn't even dropp Schoolgirl strikers or handshakers, so that's saying a lot.

I wouldn't go that far but it's certainly the biggest disappointment this season. The first OVA set expectations too high.

It's not really that there is something wrong with it, rather, there is nothing good about it.
It's just boring.

Hadshakers at least is so bad that it's kind of amusing. LWA has nothing.

I love that Trigger keeps fucking up this series with two crappy pretty dudes and forced romance bullshit. Then make up some cheapass excuse like they thought about bringing boys since the OVAs. Why didn't they do it while they were at it, then? Things would've been different.

This is why you don't fuck with the fans, kids. Don't change the formula if they like it very much and want to keep it like that.

Yeah, episode 6 and 10. I'm not a /u/fag but I liked that there was no romance at all in the OVAs and just focused on the little witches.
5 wasn't that bad compared to 6 and 10.
Episodes 6 and 10 would have been great without the shoehorning, but the fact they just hamfisted romance and it just had to have Andrew and Frank in it. Whatever role Andrew and Frank played in those episodes, that role would have been filled better by and actually been enjoyable if it was with Lotte and Sucy or team B or Ursula or some other teacher.
The hamfisting characters or romance into an episode really takes away from the enjoyable parts, but the lackluster resolution of episode 5 doesn't take away from the good parts.
>>
>>154940565
Two male characters have appeared in two or three episodes, there hasn't even been that much romance (there are only two scenes that could be considered romance and one of them is pretty much a 30 seconds long joke between two secondary characters) because it's still a show about whacky magical hijinks.
Yurifags have been losing their shit regardless because their headcannon has been proven wrong, and they had been denying the fact that one of the dudes had been appearing in the OP since the very beginning.

Pretty much a background character that would be ruined by opening her mouth since it would break one of her two defining traits.

I don't really like the romance either, but that has nothing to do with the preorders. They've been pretty low since the beginning.
>Then make up some cheapass excuse like they thought about bringing boys since the OVAs. Why didn't they do it while they were at it, then?
Because OVAs don't allow for as much breathing space with the story. Any romance really would've been ham-handed if it had to be squashed into the runtime of either one of the OVAs.

>>154940565
There's like two episodes with some romance so far and they haven't even been the worst episodes.

>>154940767

Even worse is that Trigger PR faggot shill Tattun that just attention whores in the threads. All PR people at other companies know a lot about the company they work for so they can shill it or defend it in times of controversy since that is their fucking job. That idiot doesn't seem to know that much about Trigger so I don't even know what he does all day. Worst part is you can't even report him since he has a blue name. He is a blatant shill but gets a special pass for whatever reason.

The worst part is he mentioned that Trigger is interested in doing another season of PSG, but I don't trust them at all with what they have done to LWA.

I don't think LWA is bad, but it's not really good either.

It's sad that I can't enjoy the show as much as I should because I have such a high expectation for it. Also I don't think Trigger has done a good job with the characters, honestly I can't invest in any of them.

On the other hand, I come to Kemono with nil expectation and was left satisfied with a main heroine i think was the best written character in this season. It's just unfortunate, really.

>>
>>154946590
>LWA
>high-budget anime
Man, it doesn't seem that way

I don't like the romance with Andrew and don't feel it really fits in LWA, it's just sort of lazy that "there's this boy character, so it must be a romance", when he's not remotely an interesting character, they could have done something else and something better than this. It's tough to voice this in the LWA threads because there's constantly a childish war agains /u/ and Kyoani, it gets tiring.

But besides that my biggest gripe is how shoddy the animation has become, multiple clearly outsourced episodes, even Trigger's episodes like like they're animating by the skin of their teeth. The lavish animation is like a core aspect of the franchise, if you ask me, if it starts looking shit, then it's not LWA anymore. I would never have asked for a TV show because it's obvious it would just be watered down more and more - not only that, but some key players at the studio have either been barely involved or are non-existent, so they're probably working on Imaishi's next project. Surely you'd have all hands on deck to at least attempt to make it decent? They should be throwing all their energy at it. As it is, it feels like there's little enthusiam amongst the people making it. It's frustrating to watch it and not even be able to feel Yoshinari's touch in it anymore.

Tattun claims they're actually all exhausted at the studio already, so maybe it's an organisational problem? I mean, not to make it sound like I support studio wars, but apparently Maid Dragon was done animating ages ago and the Kyoani animators are all on holiday right now...

LWA should have had a massive headstart to live up to its reputation for quality, and I don't think I would have asked for more than like a 6-episode run, FLCL or Gun/Diebuster style. Certainly not 25 episodes.

I would have preferred to have no "love interest" boy character at all. The 2 episodes they were in I would have much rather have Diana or green team spending time with Akko's team instead. As someone said earlier in the thread, it feels like betrayal. Only somewhat legitimate excuse I've read is that falling in love fits with the "coming of age" story but I never felt like it was a coming of age story so its a shit excuse.
Maid dragon was also done with like 1/4th the amount of key animators LWA has.
>>
>>154948061
Their anime doesn't feature the Yamato spirit, so it's western shit.
>>
>>154946662
Even discarding the controversy of Andrew being in the show, episode 10 is at least fun, has scenes poking fun of Diana, has a nice speech from Akko

episode 11 is great, and frankly easily could have and should have happened earlier in the show

Now that the plot's kicked off I don't think there'll be any episodes focusing on any other particular characters than Akko, just another sign of how poorly planned this is, I'm sure I remember Yoshinari saying the whole advantage of the TV series is that he'll get the chance to flesh out the characters more. He sure wasted that opportunity with the entire first cour. We still know shit all about Constance and Jasminka, Amanda is more antagonistic than she was in the OVA, and Diana has become so incredibly stoic and boring she's basically a different character than before, I don't know if that's so much "fleshing out" as it is different... and worse.

At least Imaishi's Sucy episode was good

They should have kept the character introduction crap to 3 episodes max, or had a "go watch the OVA's you idiot" message at the beginning and instantly picked up where the OVA's left off.

The show turns out to have an actual plot and everyone starts to complain it didn't start earlier.
The show was fun from the start, i probably wouldn't even mind if it didn't have any serious plot.
Also you should know that popular doesn't mean good. Youjo Senki is mediocre and i personally don't find KonoSuba that funny

wtf Handshakers is amazing. Almost as good as SAO.
>>
>>154949745
If the plot started earlier, such a ridiculous number of people probably wouldn't have bailed.

It's all well and good a show being one thing, or another thing, but if it chooses to be both with a clear separation when it switches gears, they can only blame themselves for losing the people who would have appreciated the plot by having them sit through nine episodes of episodic fluff.

I mean, there's obvious hints throughout the first cour that there is a plot and it is coming, but hints are all they are, I'm not going to drop the show, I've been looking forward to seeing what they do with it, but even I was getting frustrated by it.

And the defense that up until this point it was all "worldbuilding" bothers me too. They didn't build that much world over the course of an entire cour, they've been really inefficient with it.

Stalker is a pretty mediocre place to base your assumptions on, especially since LWA is clearly more western orientated than your usual shows.
And with all that, it's still set to beat for example KyoAni's Maid Dragon in sales, so it's certainly not bad.

You confused it with shounen/action series.

Absolutely this.

What happened to Akko? She was this sort of genki but funny and charming girl in the OVAs but in the series she's just annoying and retarded.

What happened to Amanda's gang? They were really prominent in the second OVA but somehow they get little to zero screentime in the series. Instead we just get some crappy episodes like the dragon one or Lotte being a fucking Twilight fangirl.

There he goes again, comparing Trigger to Kyoani. Fucking original.

They did on the oposite order, you don't make real girls into anime, you make anime girls real.

>>154950214
I would argue this series has at least improved on Akko compared to the OVA, it was clear oshinari struggled with her characterisation and has even admitted to it, saying she's the hardest to write. Although I will admit she seems dumber in the show, flanderisation, I guess.

It's nice to have more Ursula screentime too, but it's not exactly well spent, she's just staring off into space wistfully most of the time.

Of course she is, since it's all Akko, all the time.

Also in a serial format, it becomes more and more obvious Lotte is something of a weak link, even Hanna and Barbara are more engaging than her, Lotte's just there to look worried at the side of the screen when either Akko's being a retard, or Sucy's being a chaotic neutral shit instigator

I don't know what the fuck happened either, I loved the OVA but the episodes so far feel horribly lacking in some way. I don't mind episodic shows and I enjoy anime enough to try everything out as well (following 20 shows this season and that's only because it's kinda weak), but watching LWA has felt like a boring chore for a long while.
I want to believe in the magic, but the magic isn't making it any easier for me.

It suffers from the same thing a lot of others shows suffer from as well. It's became too popular so the g/a/ng now hates it. "Discussion" is geared towards how shitty the "fanbase" is instead of what is actually happening in the show. Yes, seen it a few thousand times already.

they waste a season just for introduction and it still explains nothing.

episode 1 : introduction to akko and luna nova, plot starts here
episode 2 : diana episode, no plot.
episode 3 : broom race, akko growth, no plot.
episode 4 : lotte episode, no plot.
episode 5 : jewdragon, magic is dying.
episode 6 : akko episode, boys introduction. no plot
and so on. episode 11 only have visions and that's it.

the anime focus too much on akko while leave everything behind.

I dropped it on the first episode. Akko is really fucking annoying as a mc and I was bored out of my mind the entire episode

Even the sakugabooru clique have given up on it

They used to get each week's article out quickly, like three days after an episode tops. It's now Friday and still no article for episode 11. The animation wasn't noteworthy so it's not like they've got too much to write about.

Damn you have shit taste. Each episode is trying to tell a small story, similar to the OVAs. There wasn't a single bad episode this season. I don't know how can you not like the anime if you liked the 2 OVA.

Let's not exaggerate.
Lotte's episode was irredeemable shit, and she's one of my favorite girls too.
>>

I don't want shitty self contained slice of life episodes; I want a grand plot that spans over 24 episodes. We should have gotten right to the "find all the 7 words to get the super overpowered magic stick" quest after ~3 episodes of introduction. What's doubly stupid is that the big bad is probably only going to appear in something like the last 5 episodes.

Nigga if you're gonna have 24 episodes, you better fucking do something with them. You could easily skip the bulk of the episodes thus far since they contribute NOTHING in the grand scheme of things.

Lotte's Twilight episode for example offers bumfuck nothing. We already knew she was a dork who wasn't a party goer and instead spoke to fairies and read books.

The pirate gramps episode amounted to nothing, since knowing the headmaster's past has added nothing to the plot.

At least the dragon episode let us know that magic is going to shit, so it has some semblance of plot importance.

>I mean I know what you mean, but it's hard when they keep coming to my site to do this shit.

>I arrived late but I wrote the entire thread pointing out it was nothing personal. Though yes, I think that kind of shitposting on 4chan isn't good.

I'm even buying both shows, which I'm pretty sure can't be said about those people who are mad I don't like LWA enough

What is your point? The people torrenting are likely to continue torrenting. It gives a side slice of a certain part of the scene with significant numbers and it isn't something you can dismiss.
>>
>>154954623

Bullshit. It was obvious the fiber bullet was going to have some importance (be shot at berserk Ryuuko, Nui, or so on), and yet it just never got mentioned again. The same applies to Ryuuko just pulling new abilities and forms out of her ass during the Elite Four fights (blades, flying, the sound barrier), only for her to magically stop coming up with new gimmicks afterwards. On top of that, the sound barrier NEVER came back after its 30 seconds of usage, even when faced with sound based enemies later on (those annoying harp things, for one).
>>
>>154954265
KLK did have plotholes and asspulls, Luluco was fine though. Imaishi at least somewhat knows what he's doing, that can't be said for Yoshinari. The Anime Mirai short is his only hit, and that's because its story was straightforward, the charm was in the great animation, and the performance of Megumi Han, since them he keeps struggling and it really shows. He pumped out tons of concept art, tons of ideas, he's actually great at that, but it's the execution of the actual final product where he's seriously lacking.

>le Chekhov's bullet
The people that bring it up as example of poor writing don't even understand the principle. The bullet was brought up for a specific situation, where using it would have been counterproductive. It was resolved then in a different way, and there ended its purpose.
That doesn't qualify as either plothole or asspull anyway, it's all you've got?
>>
>>154954852
I would expect a red herring be acknowledged for what it is by the show once its actual nature becomes clear, not just drop off the face of the earth and forgotten by everyone, that's a shit fucking red herring if that's your rationalisation for a totally ignored plot point. Red herrings come with a moment that allows the audience to know that they got played.
>>
>>154954852
A red herring is used as a distraction. The point is that the audience and character's focus remains on the red herring so they fail to notice the actually relevant plot points before it's too late. The classic example of a red herring is a character in a murder mystery who is incredibly suspicious and occupies the bulk of the investigation, but in a twist turns out not to be the culprit.

The key point here that makes the fiber bullet not a red herring is that a red herring keeps the reader distracted for an extended period, which means it has to be mentioned more than once. It's not a red herring if nobody is actually distracted by it, and it doesn't actually disguise any relevant plot points.

>The same applies to Ryuuko just pulling new abilities and forms out of her ass during the Elite Four fights (blades, flying, the sound barrier), only for her to magically stop coming up with new gimmicks afterwards.
Wrong. Rotating blade flash and swords in episodes 15 and 22, flying blades in episodes 21 and 23.
>On top of that, the sound barrier NEVER came back after its 30 seconds of usage
It did in the OVA.
At least watch the series before embarrassing yourself.

And you didn't? You totally expected to see it get some use and it didn't. That doesn't count?

And even if you were to answer "no" to that, it still doesn't make the fiber bullet a plot hole or an asspull.

Which is exactly what happened, you idiot. Did you watch the show?

Those are different transformations used after the Tournament arc. Deal with it.

More like combining old transformations. That's like saying I invented jumping and I invented swinging a stick, then saying that if I jump and swing the stick at the same time, it's a brand new invention.

To the point that even your post was pointless. Why even post?
>>
>>154955208
Dude, you're using the term red herring wrong.
The bullet was useful to create tension since for all the characters knew it was the only way of stopping Ryuko. Even Satsuki was ready to kill her.
But then came Mako that saved the situation differently, with relief of both Aikuro and Satsuki. That's it.

Not even, the life fiber swords were never used before.
But not even this would be a plothole or asspull, so why insisting?

>my biggest gripe is how shoddy the animation has become, multiple clearly outsourced episodes, even Trigger's episodes like like they're animating by the skin of their teeth. The lavish animation is like a core aspect of the franchise, if you ask me, if it starts looking shit, then it's not LWA anymore.
Well this is the first semi valid complaint I've seen.

Really, I dont expect a TV series to ve of the same quality than an OVA or a short, but fuck me, some of the outsourced shit looks, if not QUALITY, it breaks one of the defining characteristics of the series.

On the other hand, it should be clear by now that they wanted LWA character development to be a slow one. By now Diana and Ursula knows that Akko have some unusual potential and she'll play a pivotal point in the "return of the magic's former self". But as with many other characters with groundbreaking roles, she must endure opposition.
>>
>>154953601
I watched 10 episodes of ACCA and finally dropped it. The art is good and the settings and characters are comfy, but the story and pacing are really fucking slow and boring. Even when something's happening that should be exciting and interesting, like the peasant uprising in the medieval district or the assassination attempt on Jean's sister, it just ends up being boring because all the characters seem so aloof and there's no sense of urgency.

I liked the OP though. Probably top 5 OP this season.
>>
>>154956634
Kemono Friend is literally QUALITY : The Anime but it got better story, plot and pacing which LWA lacks.

Maybe the staff shouldn't have embarrassed themselves first by creating a whole after-the-fact episode to cover up a whoopsy-doo.

I dropped it at around 4 or 5, don't remember.

Saying it's bad is not the right word.
I mean, the animation is good, but they really should've hired a better storyboarder.

The plots are a bit too tame and boring for my tastes. I might pick it back up a year from now and watch it on a rainy day.

There's still way more crazy little witch antics than romance episodes so I don't see why people are so upset either.

Characterization definitely seems to be one of the weakest parts of the TV series.
They just can't seem to write interesting or sympathetic character interactions that make the viewer care. I honestly wonder if the family-friendly approach to LWA is limiting their writing ability.

>>154960806
The plot is weak, but seriously the characters are even weaker.

Except Ursula and Diana, everyone else feels too 1 dimensional. And except Akko, Trigger has done absolutely nothing to develop other characters. With a 2 cour show even if they spend the entire second cour for plot they still have 12 ep for development or world building, yet instead of focusing on something substantial hur dur random filler is all we got.

>>154960492
If you are ok with watching the same hijinks happen again and again (in lesser quality even) then sure.
>>
>>154961691
the fountain and the episode 11 seems too similar for akko development
>>
Honestly, the lead up to the plot kicking off in episode 11 made the payoff much more sweeter. Akko's decision to keep her past had a lot more depth to it when you got to see her witch career lead up to that point. It's a shame that the series can't appeal to the ADHD-addled mind. You're missing out on a lot that life has to offer in your constant fast-forward pace.
>>
>>154963580
Not gonna lie, and while I am loving LWA, I do admit it has its weakpoints.I think the dragon and undead soldier episode have been the weakest.

But they aren't bad. Just... mediocre.

But Episode 2, 3 and 8 all make up for it. Also Episode 11.
>>
Like every Trigger show, LWA was extremely overhyped for little to no reason. Seriously, I know that Trigger panders and actually talk with western fans, but their shows are the epitome of mediocrity.
>>
>>154964842
The series was hype because the OVA was fresh and charming. OVA 2 was not as good but the quality is still miles better than the series.

>>154959883
I don't think Akko-Andrew's relationship is forced or unnatural or anything, but there are more than one reasons why many are upset. First is just /a/'s aversion to romance in all girls series in general, 2nd is that their romance actually contributes nothing to the overall plot or development of other characters. The series is advertised to centered around the girls, but fact is that Trigger has done very little to flesh out them, and Andrew's existence definitely doesn't help that. He is not bad, but he is nothing spectacular or worth rooting for, most of his interactions are with Akko and he's only there to be her love interest. Ofc the series is gonna focus on the main character which is Akko, but to the point that after 11 ep in she is the only one with any kind of development is just sad. If Trigger had cut down on the filler eps and squeeze in more plot and substantial focus for other characters I doubt people would have any beef with Andrew even if their romance is much more prominent.

I like LWA.

But I do think it needs more plot. Trigger is really good at over the top plots, and the latest episode is exactly the sort of thing I've been waiting for.

Less "monster/problem of the week" and more plot, please.

>>154950321
If we assume that people don't switch from torrent to streaming mid season and that torrenting and streaming fans have similar tastes, then we can conclude how a show is doing between all fans just by looking at completed torrent downloads.

>>154958415

I'm contemplating completely automatising the process but I'm too lazy to do it atm. Updating takes just a couple of seconds so its not worth it currently.

>all shows are dropping
Suggests that either anime (yes ALL anime!) is unpopular as a whole or people are going elsewhere, like streaming sites or other torrent sites. I'm curious, does your stats take into account people downloading torrents from nyaa with taiga?
>>
>>154940492
No matter how many times you keep spamming this, you will always be a humongous faggot.
Will you fuck off for ONE thread?
>>
>>154966966
I only see what nyaa shows me since I'm using nyaa search queries. The names in the legend are the search terms. So if the torrent name doesn't have the expression 'Youjo Senki' for example then its numbers are not counted.

>all shows are dropping
From the data I collected (have plotted a few finished shows too) it seems that there's the initial drop caused 3 episode rule. Then all shows plateau after the 4th episode and finish around 66%. Catching up is irrelevant after 2 episodes.

But this only applies to medicore shows. Good shows are more consistent with their download rates. Finishing above 80% is a sign of a good show imho.

Also, first episode downloads are not falling season after season. From indicates that while torrenting may have lost 'market share' the net number of torrenters is not falling.
