What am I in for?
A wild ride. You really should judge for yourself, because there are some controversial opinions about some of this shows episodes and some anons will try to paint them in a certain way. Maybe just to shitpost. Just watch the anime and enjoy.
If you are one of these guys that likes to speculate, you should look up:
The concept of "umwelt" The "great mother archetype" by Carl Gustav Jung
Already on board
2 episodes in and I really love the artstyle and animation. It's definitely a lot different from anything I've seen. Both Cocona and Papika are fun, cute characters, and the shenanigans they get into are actually interesting and fun to watch.
They just got to Flip Flap right as I was wondering if they were gonna explain shit.
You can't go wrong if you are already liking it. I would even say that you should watch episode 3 already and then come back to tell us what you think of it.
They will explain a lot of things, but contrary to a lot of anime won't go into exposition dumps. For some things you'll have to pay attention or piece things together.
I wish I could watch Flip Flappers again for the first time.
Fukkin saved, that art is amazing.
So I finished episode 3. Felt like Panty and Stocking mixed with Dragonball Z fight scenes in a Mad Max parody (too many visual references to both Road Warrior and Fury Road).
And I can tell there's more at work here obviously with Cocona's cunt friend showing up and stealing the orb.
But yeah holy shit this show is rad.
Why did Mimi let Papikana turn into a little girl and fuck her daughter?
Now you're making me want to watch it again, I guess twice wasn't enough.
So is all the visual nods to other animes/franchises intentional or what? Their transformations mix Panty and Stocking with a few bits of Sailor Moon, the Cocona vs Papika fight was straight out of DBZ, and obviously as >>157756292 posted, the bloodbag poles, crossbows, masked BDSM thugs patrolling the desert on war rigs is straight out of Mad Max.
Many of them are intentional and there will be more in later episodes. I think magical girl transformation sequences just come with the territory though. There's not much you can innovate there.
It's all very intentional. The transformation is a straight up magical girl sequence because
this is a magical girl showbelieve it or not.
Ceicocat has a pretty good video on this, worth checking out when you're done with the show if you're into youtube/anime discussion.
Best bros followed by never seeing them again. Also, canonically gay romance, which I normally roll my eyes over because it always feels unbelievable but it's actually a decent love story.
You now realize "flip flap" refers to butterfly wings and it's so important because Salt shared his nerdy hobby with Mimi, and she thought the phrase was cute.
>Hi. I'm Papika, PhD in 2nd wave feminist theory, and I'm here to tell you why glue-gushing gonorrhea geometry is not necessary for sexual satisfaction.
>First, observe the way my lovely assistant (that's you, Cocona) wraps her thighs around my head. Many skeptics on the Christian right have made dubious allegations about whether or not this is natural. I ask you, gentlemen, that if this is not natural, how can you explain the snug way in which these divine pillows hug my face like a pair of sapho-erotic earmuffs?...oh! Smells like lavender today....Cocona would like that part struck from the record.
>Secondly, we know from past, well documented experiments that Coconas and Cocona prototypes do not respond well to phallic contact. The Cocona Mk Mimi was so dissatisfied with Salt- I mean...the subject's inadequate penis, she almost blew up everything and tried to consume her daughter with the gaping, blood belching maw of eldritch horror that he had left behind.
>Now, I know what you are all thinking. "But we need warty hotdogs to manufacture more Coconas! How can you deprive the world of such majestic beauty?" While it may be true with our current technology, Cocona and I have been searching her fridge and dresser drawer extensively for a substitute. We expect to make a breakthrough some time in the next year, though further trial runs may be needed to confirm our findings.
>Finally, I feel the need to address the question that PR has received more than any other. "Alright, Papika, I get that Cocona has a life-threatening allergy to weenies, but surely that doesn't mean she needs 'your' lesbo-mutant ham wallet, right? Why can't she be with an ugly blonde slut with no curves?"
>We here at Papika industries take your concerns very seriously, and we appreciate your letters and the return addresses on them. Thank you and goodnight.
Really great first half, absurdly terrible second half. All subtly was tossed out the window for a ridiculously on the nose plot about Cocona's controlling mother. I heard there was a writers change later on for the show, and that wouldn't surprise me in the slightest.
Stop posting this low res stitch.
>What am I in for?
It's like Madoka but with lesbians
>Madoka but with lesbians
>Yuri but with lesbians
This work is very popular in Japan
Please believe me.
An incredible show to most anons, at least until episode 6 or 9. After that opinions are more mixed. I'm one of those who thought everything wasn't as good after episode 9 but mainly because it's rushed and not because I hated that part of the plot, though I do not like it when people like me are called "shitposters". Definitely a great show though but you should watch it and form your own opinion on it.
Hey now, anon. Some people prefer the cock on the pup instead.
Wasn't the first NSFW Flip Flappers fanart featured Papika with the cock instead? When did people started shifting to Cockona instead?
IIRC, it didn't mean that Cocona had the cock though. Almost everyone thought that Papika was the "guy" after episode 4 with the contrasts between the two of them. Even official fanart and episode 7 has more boyish styles Papika.
>Cocona being DP'd by the puppycock and yayacock.
>Cockona and Yayacock DP'ing Papika
Here, you can see one of her flaps.
The kind of show that's important to have exist, but isn't transcendent. It plays in a thematic space (particularly visually) that's still pretty experimental for seasonal anime, but is way too steeped in references to continue being relevant to anyone but armchair historians years from now. To be transcendent, it would have to be able to sit at least a little bit outside its context without falling to pieces.
It's also pretty sloppy.
Name fove things or more that he did wrong.
Not wearing a condom
Not taking all control away from his dad when he went crazy
Not killing Mimi earlier
Letting his daughter be in a lesbian relationship with his childhood friend
Not raising his daughter properly
>these two have had sex
>Sayuri still hasn't
Why does she even exist again?
>pretends to have skills, but is just a uni fangirl
>lusts after a married man
>dresses girls in cosplay for her fetish
>ugly pale skin
>gets in Hidaka's way
>probably doesn't bathe regularly due to long work hours
