You seem determined to ignore or handwave anything contradictory to everything fitting together perfectly. I wasn't quoting a "random nip" as fact. I am pointing out that someone stated it didn't make sense because Mirai was senior in the manga and new in the game, then nobody said "no that isn't the case". Instead people tried to explain how that could work or why the contradiction existed. Other people accept it as fact. A popular theory in Japan was that the game came first then the manga and anime were two separate branches off of that. In part because of the Mirai character not working otherwise.
And someone also said in that thread that they were probably trying to leave it open to speculation and avoiding inconsistencies as much as possible, and no one disagreed with him either. We're talking about a thread with like a couple dozen posts in it, not a 600-post 4chan thread where someone will disagree with every single opinion posted, right or wrong.
And I'm not trying to "handwave" or "ignore" contradictions. I literally went back to the source material itself looking for the contradiction you're talking about. It's not there.
>And someone also said in that thread that they were probably trying to leave it open to speculation and avoiding inconsistencies as much as possible
Nobody has said that.
>We're talking about a thread with like a couple dozen posts in it
No we aren't there are 400+ responseses to that article and the comments come from a thread of 1000 posts.
>I literally went back to the source material itself looking for the contradiction you're talking about. It's not there.
The Japanese certainly seem to think it is. Here have yet another guy pointing out the differences.
To clear some points up:
The synopsis might be a little misleading but the show itself establishes Kaban being assumed as a Friend in the first few minutes
This fact stayed consistent and interactions between characters were made with this knowledge
But because it was common knowledge to the characters, this was never brought up and questioned
And it only showed what it meant to be a Friend after her regeneration at the last episode
So the people behind the series obviously know that speculation was a huge factor towards its success. So in the next guidebook they introduce a ton of speculation fuel in the form of an in-universe conversation of two characters (the owls) making speculations.
This is like 4D tofu.
Every Serval in any given moment of time is a good Serval
Then I can only assume it was lost in translation. I never said the connection would be perfect. Clearly it was good enough for the creators, since they liked the theory enough that they included it in official material. It's not a cardinal sin to make a continuity error.
Then hug-friends would use the double finger defense against the hippo.
I'm not saying its impossible. I think right now that anything could be possible really its not as if they couldn't integrate the whole lot with a lot of explanation or some retcons. It just seems mighty inconvenient and to little benefit to try get them all to fit together in an airtight manner when they really don't appear to be designed to be.
But it seems the easiest route for them to go is a loose canon or new anime canon that uses things from the others, or perpetually leaving the links to the past vague and poorly defined, if they do want to integrate things to some extent and then drop things that don't quite work or take a lot of explanation.
They used the Owls to tell that for a reason, they gave us narrators that are unreliable sources of information on purpose. Previously everything has just been laid out as plain fact in a dry manner on a page. But they presented this as the Owls speculating over how things work. It's like this guy said >>157301478 a great way to introduce speculation fuel.
Some of the people on that page I previously linked to were actually speculating that it could be the Owls speculating because it is purposeful misdirection or half truths mixed with fiction to setup something for the second season.
The best kind of tofu
By the way I know the word "retcon" has negative connotations in many communities but I am not using it in a negative way at all. It's not like I am saying the whole series is shit because they changed things in the past so they would fit with the anime when I use that term. I don't really care what they do with the past as long as it doesn't shit up any future anime they make. It's more like fanservice than anything else.
Since it's clear that they want to make a break from the Nexon canon, isn't it better to treat the game canon as a myth, i.e. things that may or may not have happened? It's like looking at Dark Souls 1 as you're playing Dark Souls 2, the only thing your player character have confidence in believing is that the cycle of Fire and Dark have happened for gods know how long. Both MarGay and Tsuchinoko knows that there are 'generations' of Friends with some kind of disaster happening between them, but that's all they are confident in.
I personally think that is the best way to leave it kind of vague and legendary like it was in the first series. But who knows where they will go with it. I just have confidence in Tatsuki to pull it off whatever they end up going with given the great job he has done with the first series.
My feet hurt
the friends are too loud
i wish I was at home playing video games
Why don't you learn to draw and do it yourself
Is this one of those things I'll never understand because I wasn't here for the airing threads?
Not really, one of the interviews with the creators they give a metaphor for how some people will interpret things wildly and used tofu as an example of having some deeper meaning despite there really not being any
Thank you for spoonfeeding me, I appreciate it.
I love her!
Hyenas are actually closer to felids than canids, weird huh?
I don't know where you are but they're all over the US.
Huh, in this case you realize that this discussion started due to pages from the new guidebook with the owls talking about the events tying together, right? And even Japanese fans are talking about it too.
There's nothing specifically "Western" about this.
that chart is translated from japanese
Can she best Fennec?
Or is Arai just a scrub?
Timber Wolf is another name for grey wolf, not a different species. Sometimes hard to remember all the wolf species while not mixing up the different names for the same species.
>What is Western fandom's obsession with connected timeline.
It's fandom, not Western fandom. If you're the first to fit all the real, or imaginary, clues together to accurately predict what comes in the next release, you've proven that your tofu is the biggest most virile tofu in the land.
Wonder if the next Kemono Friends game is going to be a Waifu battle harem game like most female only gacha games are. Which friend is your waifu?
I'll play it no matter how bad just so I can get Aardwolf.
Guys, I never knew I needed some Grape-kun x Hululu so much in my life.
Would you do this favor to a friend?
And of course I uploaded the wrong one
If they made a S2 and it wasn't shit tier CGI, would that be good or bad?
The answer is bad
Think I know who your waifu friend is just be careful around her butt okay.
I lost sleep last night updating my toaster.
Last time I updated was two years ago, after getting hit by ransomware.
Shit is hectic. I'm not going to take chances.
Adblock hasn't been stopping stealth popups recently.
I promised myself to start updating more frequently, but I'm probably going to forget it and update in another two years, or if there is another wave of crippling malware.
But I dunno about that, I reckon my toast is going to be done before that happens.
Why not just use something like "Fapped"?
For the sake of a small comedic piece of fanart slang is perfectly reasonable, especially since context is removed.
Shit and stool are interchangeable anyways, one just sounds more professional.
>Shit and stool are interchangeable
Yes, if your goal is to completely change the intent and impact of the phrase. I really hope you never try to become a translator because you seem to be missing some of the most fundamental concepts required for it
>Ignored everything else I said both before and after when I only said two sentences.
It's Mastodon, hence the smartphone.
>hence the smartphone.
>there's no reason not to
What kind of argument is this? You're telling me that it's okay to translate it incorrectly because it's a joke and the reader doesn't have the context to know any better?
I actually had no idea what the original translation was, just done it on a whim, total coincidence if it actually is that translation.
I used Masturbated just cause pic related
Completely missing the point still
It's not incorrect
It's not changing the implications or tone
It's not changing shit between the two words
So no reason not to use the one that fits better
This as well but doesn't really matter for my point.
The argument didn't really have anything to do with the actual source material.
Yes, using the word "masturbation" as opposed to "fapping" can change the implications. Which one would you use in an academic context? Which one would you use on 4chan? That's what I mean by an implication; one can be objectively more correct than the other. Saying it doesn't matter is the kind of shit that makes people despise translator groups.
You guys are really fucking weird. It wasn't even an actual translation, I know 0 nip.
After certain other characters get their chance in the spotlight.
Reporting in, but I still don't get those memes
A greater dark horse story than Girls und Panzer.
I'd really like Fennec/Arai styled segments with the newly sandstar'd Aardwolf visiting post-Kaban Japari Park attractions, with S1 friend cameos and everything.
Where have you guys been?
It would be about TANOSHII!!!
...and then WAKARAN.
I knew that KF is a phenomenon right now but I didn't know how much it was.
>Thinking that humans would look good with fluffy tails.
Is this a furry thought?
The only road I know is furious. Explain.
Mad Max also seems like a good comparison.
That's actually true, but it would have worked in the same way with sexy ladies wearing fox tails or dog tails instead?
Why everyone forgot Princess-san? She's pure love too.
Here's hoping that the Cryptozoology exhibit included a Jackalope reference.
>and people tend to forget unlikable characters
Has nothing to do with who's likable. It's all about how cute they are, and princess doesn't stand out.
5 seconds screen time.
But Shoebill is likable AND cute.
Actually those are hare friends but whatever.
Didn't Japan make robotic ears and tail that move based on your thought patterns and even though I see people make fun of it I see great cosplay potential for inventions like that.
Shoebills were already well known in Japan even before the anime, so that helped with the character.
We know, Margay.
She is the pengi i want to fuck the most.
Memebill has an obscene amount of gap moe.
I wouldn't say her just having a bunny nose and furry paws instead of hands and feet makes her furry when the rest of her body is human shaped. Also I wouldn't call her dangerously furry because it can refer to something else on the furry scale.
>Start watching it
>The animation is terrible
I don't understand. Why is this popular? How do you guys like it so much? I'm asking legitimately. I don't really think I can sit through this at all. It's like the anime is made in MMD and I feel like I'm watching poorfag anime like the actual poorfag I am, only limited to cheap offbrand shit. What am I missing here? I want to like it too because it seems fun but I don't really know if I can stomach the animation.
Would you trust this face?
Vote "No" on Arai-san for Park Ranger
Kemono friends aired during the perfect time.
We're all so used to watching shitty looking meme videos, so we can get over it.
Just watch it, and you will know the appeal of Friends
The first edition D&D Kobolds were small and doglike and that was the more influential version globally, while in the US it continued trendsetting.
No in other mythos they're usually more humanoid, like goblins.
She tried to wipe her emails by dunking them in the lake!
Would it be a bad idea to put my tongue in there?
Pretty smart to keep the fanbase speculating without any need to commit to story elements.
And I think we can all believe in Tatsuki to keep the story free of any unnecessary/low quality baggage.
I didn't know they had such big teeth.
It just feels like everyone else can enjoy it despite the animation or doesn't even see the animation at all. It looks like it's playing at 15 FPS and probably is.
I seriously hope I can get used to it and actually enjoy it. I feel kind of disappointed both with myself for not being able to like it like everyone else does.
>disappointed [...] with myself
Everyone is, anon.
Now, go watch it or stop complaining about it in here.
You get used to it. Once the initial "shock" is gone you'll see its good points.
The 3 episode rule is surprisingly relevant for this show.
I wouldn't even trust Arai-san with a gun.
Sometimes they are depicted as lizards people other times dog people. It was actually the monster girl fandom that got me to look them up since they kept having them appear as dog girls. Also why were the pictures deleted, the was a Monster Musume threads here at some point and I don't really consider the Kobolds anthro, just boardline for they always seemed more Monster Girl to me.
Oh god my desire to shove my penis in her mouth is rising.
Has Mine drawn Kaban somewhere?
I can't remember a single official work of her that wasn't made in the anime style.
There are a few others too.
Raccoons should be killed on sight anyways. They are a pest, and one of the few animals that will kill shit for fun.
I feel so bad for Grape-kun. He just wants to protect Hululu and love her forever.
Oh, I forgot about that one.
I will never not be bothered by the fact that the artist forgot to give Arai a tail.
>Enter Alpaca's tea house in Japari Park
Wat do, /a/?
>mfw sister has a college degree in Animation and still made it through
Sure, the animation is pretty bad. But it's quite possible to see past the bad parts and to the good ones.
same here. i didnt even pay attention to intitial thoughts on the show, i just completely disregarded it for the animation. once i saw how hard everyone was pushing it i gave it a try and was pretty surprised.
It's hard for berserk because the manga exist. Going from one of the best drawn manga to one of the worst animation quality is tough. Also, the tone and theme of berserk is ruined by bad animation. Meanwhile, the bad animation of KF add to sillyness and charm of the show
I still would prefer KF with high quality animation and same quality of writing though
Looked up on desuarchives on what this deleted picture was and seriously people are considering that furry. I the guy did was give red fox friend a button nose not a full furry muzzle like some people were saying. Why do people get triggered by that when it's a common occurrence in even Kemonomimi anime/manga in general without it even being kemono/furry at all.
I gave it the 3 episode treatment really wanting to like it... but nope, even leaving behind the animation itself, there is too much wrong with the art, the action, etc.
On top of that, rather than re-adapting the work from the beginning, they started at this point skipping a shit ton as they go. Somehow they ended making something only for fans and yet not even for them.
With that said, some people is saying that the latest season improved considerably. I may give it a second chance if I notice a really good reception once it's finished.
>implying I havent read it mulitple times over the last 15 years
The 97 series is great and from what I remember the moives were ok. I'd like a proper adaption when the series ends, but thats not gonna happen and really I dont care for much past the conviction arc, maybe just Ganishka
>Not showing Onee-san the true meaning of Lewd
In my defense, I thought she was your Oneesan as well.
Also, in my defense, what are you, Gay?
was posting this as a joke, but honestly pretty close
