Are you ready for the best girl?
That's not Nephren
I sure am. Can't wait to see her for the first time.
Why do the new girls look so shit compared to Ithea, Nephren and Chtolly?
This was such a gigantic asspull.
Why do you resurrect a girl you killed off just 3 minutes ago?
That only makes it better.
You can kill her as often as you want. It feels great every time.
This makes a murder-resurrection cycle way better than a cherry popping/hymen regeneration cycle.
I, too, thought it was a stupid joke when it happened again but it wasn't.
Are you saying that fakes are worth less than originals?
Fuck you she's great even if she's not as good as the troll
Ithea a best. I love her now and I love her 5 years later when she's trying her best to protect her cute imoutos. How can one girl be so best.
>start of vol.3
Fuck, I'm not yet ready.
>ancient language is latin
>modern language is french
>Lots of adorable lolis that all want his dick
>A couple of adolescent girls in perfect breeding age who all want his dick
>Even considering an old, soiled hag
What the actual fuck is wrong with you?
This is a warcrime isn't it?
Huh was ithea's backstory later on?
Ithea always has the best interactions with the other girls
>or a textbook
Those are pretty different things.
>I can connect the dots between words and guess what they say
High level reading
>it's this easy to bait fairies with food
Truly the top of the foodchain
So the rest of the show is just about turning her into a bride
The best fairy
There is so much wrong with this
What the fuck
Is she the one that loses herself in the sequel
I don't want Cthulhu to die (or any other girl for that matter). She has become my cute little daughter and I don't want watch her suffer anymore. I just want her to be happily married to Will ;_;
Unlike previous one, this episode didn't feel rushed at all. They even slowed the pace down compared to LN.
I love Kutori.
The point is that she loves him and I want to see her happy. Besides, her role as a military weapon is already a shitty way of life for her kind. If she wants to marry Willy then I will let her marry him.
Better resign yourself of drop this show altogether anon
How much emotional investment you feel is largely a subjective thing.
If you just don't feel it, you don't feel it.
It's one of the reasons why you won't find two people who like the exact same canon of CGDCT SoL shows.
Lizards win again!
Grick a fine too.
Wasn't that only a coma or something. 'Mental degradation' as they called it. People wake up from comas occasionally so it seems fine, they just have to go through with consequences later (I have not read this). The whole suicide bomb yourself seemed stupid from the get go and having the human who knows the weapons around should help teach the idiot fairies 'that's not how you use these weapons'.
This loli is the best.
I don't understand
How can one girl be so best? Someone explain.
>just read the novel until volume 5
Really looking forward to the adaption of volume 4, also my body isn't ready to see volume 3 after reading it.
Are we going to get some backstory about the beasts before the anime ends? I wanna know just how badly the humans fucked up. Also wouldnt it be stupid to actually attack them since the only reason the beast MC "killed" did not regenerate it was because it's using its powers to keep everyone floating? This means they're pretty much invincible.
We're most likely going to get the full backstory. The real nature of beasts was hinted at as early as volume 1 in the LN. Also, Ebon Candle (the skull) isn't actually a beast but a "god" which supported the Visitors.
It isn't really stressed in the adaptation, but they basically lose their self and die. More accurately, their soul realizes it's actually dead. Nothing up to this point nothing implies that full red hair = death though, as no fairy is known to have lived up to that point.
This looks more violent than from when I watched it.
I bet this lizard loves curry.
>still acting tough even though the ship got fucked up because she was busy having a nap somewhere when the best attacked
I dislike her already.
>It isn't really stressed in the adaptation, but they basically lose their self and die. More accurately, their soul realizes it's actually dead. Nothing up to this point nothing implies that full red hair = death though, as no fairy is known to have lived up to that point.
So everything from here is wrong?
"This is what eventually happens to all Leprechauns who experience a phenomenon known as The Encroachment. It's when the Visitor Elq Hrqstn completely subsumes the original's personality and takes over it as her own, effectively killing off the Leprechauns' original personality. It already happened to Ithea when she was younger, though she managed to hide the fact. Chtholly begins to experience the symptoms as the series progresses. However, as the reader learns later, Elq is "immortal yet dead", and the leprechauns are actually temporary reincarnations of the shattered pieces of Elq's soul. So in a sense, she *is* the original personality."
There is. By Wilhelm, but Ctholly faints, and then they both pretend it didn't happen at all iirc. Wilhelm then questions whether he actually cares about Ctholly at all, and suggests the fact that he might have only went along with her because she reminded him of Lilia, and her promise about the butter cake reminded him of Almaria, so by keeping his promise with Ctholly he could distract himself from how he couldn't keep his promises with Lilia and Almaria.
I think they really went overboard with setting Ctholly up for a tragic fall. Half of this episode was the show beating the viewer over the head that everything is not going to be daijoubu.
Nephren ruq Insania makes DICK go INSANIA.
Would raise attentively as pet and then usagi fuck. She'll grow up into one smoking hot kuudere.
And how is Ithea still okay? I get that the original one died, but if all fairies' souls are fragments of Elq's soul, why didn't Ithea turn into Elq once she completed her encroachment? She's another person, but her encroachment wasn't like Ctholly's at all.
Ctholly has some very nice slim legs.
So basically they got their hands on ancient human weapons, gave them to fairies as they are the only ones with the mana to use it (because they fake copy human souls). They eventually witness that continued used of the weapons and mana make fairies got nuts and explode. So they instead create a society of fairies who think it's perfectly acceptable to suicide 'before it's too late'.
In the end the species are playing with fire and didn't do enough research. That or the 500 year old guy is being a bigger dick than he needs to, it seems like he could teach them how not to nuke themselves.
Same shit as black bullet, use kids until their on the verge of breaking, then put them down before the cause wide scale harm, this time they're just put to use.
It's not going down the 'host personality (leprechaun) will be taken over/destroyed by base spirit/soul' route is it? I thought they were aware of what they are based off anyway. Seems like its going down the cliche as fuck route of MC having to choose between the current blue head and read head from the past. I'd like to be wrong and the red hair is a red herring.
This show is quickly surpassing Tsuki ga Kirei in the run for AOTS. I mean, I get that TgK is OC DONUT STEEL, but having a recap after 6 fucking episodes is a nono. I guess Mahou no Sho is still sort of a dark horse contender for the title, but Zero can't hold a candle against neither my waifu Ctholly nor my daughteru Nephren.
Why is MC so against using these ghost soul reincarnation things?
His short flashbacks indicate a war where he was one of many child soldiers. So the old man just recreated what he was because it was effective. MCs attachment needs a bit more development, he grew up in what appears to be the same circumstances but is now adamantly against it.
It just seems like he should accept this is what needs to be done, he basically killed himself to take out a god.
MC grew up in an orphanage, and the head of said orphanage was the previous Regal Brave. He basically forced to old man to teach him everything he could despite the guy being highly against his choice. Him being who he was is completely his own decision. And it's quite clear that they consider people above 13 to be "Adults".
It's a good adaptation, but I can't shake the feel that for someone who hasn't read the LN, it does feel a bit rushed.
Though it could be worse. A lot worse.
I do wonder though, where the show will end, since it's obvious by now that it won't reach the full novel finale.
>Nyggla will never be your MILFy Ogre Mama.
Feels bad, man...;_;
Those spoilers are wrong. Ithea's personality wasn't taken over by Elq at all, the encroachment was from a previous fairy in a past life. Similarly to what happens to a certain yellowloli in the sequel series. Their case is quite a bit different from Kutori, they never meet or interact with Elq.
Yup, you're right about that.
She's actually so great. She wakes up without her memories from her past life, alone and surrounded by people she doesn't know. Some girls would just break down or run away or whatever, but Ithea is stronger than that. So she finds past Ithea's diary and studies it intensely for several days, learning about her habits and personality and friends and likes and everything. So she can protect past Ithea's friends, convincing them that their beloved genki friend is alive and happy, not wanting them to suffer the knowledge that she's gone forever. Easily best girl.
Her blood lacks aldehydes?
The biggest deathflag is showing her dying while being the happiest girl on the world during the first episode desu
What sort of face is this?
If Ithea already had her personality taken over by Elq and she turned out fine, then whats the worry?
Its been a while.
>Tsuki ga Kirei
That's an oxymoron.
Im confus, how does the red loli interacts with Chutulu and why is people saying vol 3 is going to be bad.
Spoonfeed me pls anons
Elq normally. It's the previous personality. Elq and Ktori is a special case I think. Elq didn't overtake anything she just got much closer to Ktori than when she was "dreaming" other fairies.
Still no idea why the hair changes to red everytime. Maybe just a stylistic thing..
If it's not subsuming then what does Elq want with Chtholly, is it true she's a part of Elq's soul like all the other fairies? Also when Chtholly dies, does she go back to Elq or something?
Can someone who finished the LN's spoonfeed me and tell me if Chtolly and Willem have a happy ending? I know that things get pretty miserable soon, but I'm hoping that Chtolly is like a cat with nine lives or something.
Elq explained what she wanted.
sealed anyway, so she had no choice but to witness/dream the lives of other fairies.
And Lillia left a mark on her too so she also wanted to be like Lillia and experience things she experienced (heroism, self sacrifice, love, etc.). And this is what Elq found in Ktori.
>Chtolly cries and talks about how much she loves Willem
>Everyone talks about how she'll die
>Willem does chores
>More crying and death flags
We get it. She loves him and wants to be with him, but she's going to die. What's with Japan's obsession with sadness? It doesn't inherently make for an interesting or mature story. Learn some subtlety, or maybe even do something crazy like writing a romance that isn't either infinite lack of progress, cheating/love polygon, or death flags->death.
People like it. You realize people can write stuff you don't like and/or approve of, right?
You aren't the center of the universe. faggot
A lot of anime watchers are extremely retarded and not just in Japan. In this very board, and other communities I have seen people not get even the most straightfoward of stories.
>Fuck you, I like really sad stories that beat you over the head when everything and assume you're retarded
I mean I'm still watching the show, but I see lots of claims that it's really well written, when in reality it's just different than normal LN stuff. It's hamfisted and goes too hard on the emotional manipulation like a lot of Japanese media, and it's absolutely ridiculous with the death flags. We get it. She wants to be a waifu, but she's going to die instead.
>Fuck you. Suck my dick, become my personal parrot and accept what I say as true. You don't get to think
OK. Rec me some animu then, ph great wise anime critic and master. I could choose for myself, but we have already stablished that's wrong and I should follow whatever you say without question, right, oh great and wise anime critic-sama-dono?
Right. It would be better if it was a circlejerk for people who agree with you
The problem isn't shitting on the show. The problem is acting like you're enlightening us with your great opinion and criticisms we were to blind and ignorant to see
My issue isn't with negative opinions, but with the fact that he can't accept that people don't agree with his.
What is so hard to understand? If you come to a discussion about something and bitch about it why are you watching it?
Except in reality what happened was I brought up something negative, and got the answer "fuck you I happen to like melodramatic saddness, and people who watch anime are retarded anyways." But please, continue with your victim complex while ignoring anything but praise.
You mean Shigatsu? This show has redeeming qualities and is still at least worth watching even if it has problems. Shigatsu is the worst kind of melodramatic garbage, and only the kind of people who think Okada of a good writer could enjoy that dumpster fire.
>Negative opinions are not discussion
I hate you from the bottom of my heart.
The second guy literally explained that people who watch anime are retarded. Can you even fucking read?
What strawman? Stop saying random words you don't understand. Talking about the show is discussion, even if it's negative. "Fuck you I like it and everyone is stupid anyways" is not discussion. I'm mad because offboard newfags with the circlejerk hugbox mentality have utterly ruined this board.
Can you read?
I'd say shigatsu is worse than okada stuff since at least I can enjoy her drama and because I'm expecting it already from the start, but as you've said, there are other stuff I can enjoy in sukasuka.
That said, so long no anons praising the hamfisted bludgeoning of the viewers with the chtolly death flag, I'm okay.
No. Point out where the strawman is. This trend of retards in hugbox threads and calling everything they don't like some random logical fallacy is ridiculous. Do you actually know what a strawman even is?
>tel guy to get off his high horse. Nothing wrong with people liking what he doesn't like and seeing stuff differently
>guy greentexts to imply I said "fuck you, I like (insert description of the show made to make it look extremely shitty and like I'm retarded for liking it" here
That's the strawman
Yeah fuck you. It's clearly you made the second post. You didn't tell anyone to get off their high horse, you threw a bitchfit that not everyone likes being treated like a retard. Don't twist what actually happened.
Ok, so you were just using words you don't know.
Except that wasn't me, and I took issue with the retards complaining someone interrupted their circlejerk notgenerall and proceeded to cry about strawmen that don't exist.
Nah, I can't enjoy her stuff at all. It's just too bad on all fronts.
The problem is actually that you're not responding to me, and are very clearly angry that not everyone enjoys hamfisted melodrama. Keep the irony in check, no one is obliged to like bad melodrama, not are they obliged to only praise shows.
Cool. Not everyone has to see this show as hamfisted melodrama because you say so
I didn't throw any bitchfits. I just claimed there are so many retards watching anime that subtlety would be completely lost on them.
You don't enjoy being treated like a retard? Cool. But you should understand why authors do so
>It's not hamfisted
>I didn't throw a bitchfit, I just said everyone was retarded
Yeah no you were totally the reasonable one and didn't just throw a bitchfit that not everyone likes being treated like a retard by their media the same way you do.
You fucking retard. I just claimed there are a lot of retards in the anime fandom. I didn't say everyone was
Stop twisting my words your fucking convenience
You are clearly mad that people see a fucking TV show differently than you do and that you can't stablish yourself as the superior lightbringer of superior opinions and criticisms
If you think this show is treating you like a retard and you hate it so much, why are you even wasting time of your only life watching it?
Just kill yourself or learn to post negative opinions without acting like everyone who disagrees is inferior to you
Oh look, an actual strawman. That's funny. In all seriousness, read your own post. People aren't obliged to like the same shit you do, so get over yourself. This isn't a hugbox, people can talk about what they don't like. Also, you really need to learn how to differentiate multiple posters, though I imagine that's hard when you're busy just smashing your face into the keyboard.
>Ok, so you were just using words you don't know.
You're half right, the 'strawman' I saw was pretty much what 157614931 said, but that's a weak argument I admit. Actually, I was pretty disjointed and probably incorrect in saying most of what I said.
I got into this argument on impulse, sorry.
Are they seriously not going to get to the end at this rate?
One of the major draws for me was that the original series was done (sequel aside) and I wanted to watch a show that actually had a fucking ending, if they're just going to blueball everyone I'm not sure if I care enough to keep going.
>any ln or manga adaptation
This nigga. Unless it was announced to adapt all that is.
Because I don't fit your definition of a poster on /a/? Not everyone is the same anon.
I've been lurking here since around 2010, you can stop with the crossboarder boogyman shit.
Again, the problem isn't negative opinions. The problem is trying to force them as the only one truth and trying to make everyone who disagrees look inferior to the complainer.
I don't care if it was or wasn't you. When everyone's anonymous, it's hard to tell.My point that people shouldn't spout negative opinions if they can't do so without implying people who disagree are inferior.
Just like people aren't obliged to like what I do, they aren't obliged to dislike what you or the other guy dislikee.
And I just think that watching a show you don't like is a terrible waste of your limited lifetime
Still, if you want to do so, go ahead.
I dont read the LN, as the LN reader you feel like they have time to adapt? If so, then we might be getting a real conclusion from the LN albeit with some unimportant part cut out to make time.
See it's funny because someone said a negative opinion about the show, and then literally and objectively, you were the first one to talk down on any of the fans. Please try to mental gymnastics your way out of this one to make yourself look like the reasonable one. And remember, "he disagreed with me" doesn't make the other guy wrong or condescending. Also remember that insisting someone who said the show has merits and is worth watching actually hates the show is a real strawman. I'll wait for your totally not bullshit response that addresses these things.
How can a show have merits and be worth watching if you claim it treats you like a retard? That should be a major flaw, right?
And the guy wasn't condescending because he disagreed. He was condescending because of the way he wrote his greentexts to make me look as bad as possible while dismissing the possibility of me and/or other people thinking the show isn't as hamhanded as he sees it.
>How can anyone not think in absolutes like me?
>It doesn't matter that I actually said those things, the way he wrote about the show (and the show alone) made me feel stupid
I give up. You're actually beyond help.
I don't think I've seen that hairstyle ever before anywhere, truely unique.
You can describe a show in such a way that you make anyone who'd like it look stupid. It's perfectly possible. Don't you fucking act like talking about the show alone doesn't allow you to imply stuff about the people who like it and the people who dislike it
>Fuck you, I like really sad stories that beat you over the head when everything and assume you're retarded
Here's an example. Tell me how this doesn't say anything about the people who like the audience and is exclusively shitting on the show, as you claim
>it's another "people are not allowed to like what I hate" episode
Hypocrites. Pointing out "flaws" doesn't immunize you from criticism. Be prepared to defend your opinion, don't just cling to muh hugbox meme.
The obvious deathflags aren't even done in a dramatic way. It's all done through some exposition of the world and some healing. There's nothing sad about what's going on, since she's supposed to have died 3 episodes ago in the first place. In fact, it's told in a way that let's you actually root for Chtholly and see how many deathflags she can eat through. The story is literally about her deathflags. It's not just some big twist at the end.
Did that come before or after you responded to a post that was objectively and factually only about the show with a personal attack them the other guy to get over himself where you then stated many fans are retarded so writing that assumes the audience is okay? He talked about the show, You realized he was right, you felt insecure and stupid because you understood that his post was in the money, and you lashed out. The icing on the cake is that you're now accusing him if being unreasonable with personal attacks, when in reality it's just you shitting a brick over not everyone blindly loving the same shit you do.
I think we're done now.
>He talked about the show, You realized he was right, you felt insecure and stupid because you understood that his post was in the money, and you lashed out.

Nice assumptions, faggot. They're all wrong
Whining that you feel stupid isn't criticism. They are indeed flaws, no quotations needed. This is absolutely a hugbox, no debate. The deathflags are absolutely dramatic. Did you miss episode one? How about literally 3 tearful reunion scenes in 6 episodes? How about the voices in her head and the ominous lines at the end of last week? How about the conversation with the wizard? It is absolutely sad, I'm blown away that you can even think otherwise. She's still supposed to die, nothing's changed. She's not eating through anything, she's literally going to die. No one complained about a twist, they complained about heavy handedness and a lack of subtlety. That's literally the opposite.
You're actually really fucking stupid. You can say you like hammy melodrama, but you're just saying a bunch of shit that isn't true because you want to argue.
Are you people done calling each other stupid?
>all this shit is objectively true because I say so and that's how I, the one true messiah with divine wisdom, see it
Not how it works, you absolute retard
Also, you keep proving you want a hugbox where everyone agrees with the shit you spout.
Oh come. How the hell can you say it isn't dramatic with a straight face? She's cries and hugs him while thinking about wanting to be his bride right after they talk about her dying like every 5 minutes.
>Try to argue
>Say a bunch of shit that's actually wrong
>Give up and say "no u" when someone points out it's bullshit
Seriously, where does the inferiority complex come from?
>Frequently talking about impending death and someone's desire to have a happy life, followed by lots of tears and hugs isn't dramatic
That's not an opinion, that's just incorrect
Because not replying to bait is a difficult ability to learn.
>it's not an opinion. it's incorrect because I say so
>When someone points out criticisims and flaws, you have to suck their dick and become their parrot or else you want a hugbbox
>criticisms and flaws pointed out are objective truths like 2+2=4
>however positive stuff isn't objective i I or the guy pointing out "objecitve flaws" don't say so
OK sure, mr lord of wisdom-dono
Since I am so factually incorrect about everything, plz rec me some anime. I must also be factually incorrect about my choices
Alright, finally this show is hitting my feels. Buttercake scene made me cry.
