This is legitimately the most complicated anime I've ever watched.
Not even joking or being ironic.
>gravity powers nicked straight out of Gravity Rush
Can't they get sued for this?
Is this a lie?
>A car is driving towards us.
>Takes out Katana.
I honestly wasn't expecting for them to kill the dude, I hope the next episodes keep the things hardcore
That's easy to understand if you're just autistic enough
Where did this bitch come from what the fuck?
Find a flaw.
Go ahead. I'm waiting. Take all the time you need.
Real best girl. No lies.
>door is actually open
>they just walked right in
Not gonna lie, I laughed.
But I'm sure what the point of the distraction, they spent more time driving and ninja chick had to fight them all anyway.
I really hate the fact that I said it would end similarly to Shigofumi's first episode and I was right. I can't remember the last time I was surprised by an anime in a good way not in a fuck you way like in Kado
Because it's cute.
This would be nice but it's a bit underwhelming for a "finale". Unless the dude they took down was actually THE guy they had to take down to win (but you'd expect some celebration if that was the case), guess next episode will tell us.
I'm lying right now.
Is she going to be traumatized for the rest of the series?
what a cute girl (faceless old man)
LOOK AT THESE TINY HANDS
THESE ARE THE HANDS OF MURDERERS
Those are just adorable, normal schoolgirls anon don't be crazy
Everyone's a spy.
The double agent is going to be Ange.
Liar. Ange personally told me she's a virgin.
Glory to Nippon.
Glorious Nippon Steel Folded Over 1000 Times cuts through cars like a knife through butter.
How else did she knew >>159585404 was an spy? She should've drugged everybody in that room but she knew who was her target. She could be on several layers of lying.
Ange drinking game: take a shot whenever Ange lies. How long will you make it?
Get an absolutely ferocious erection.
I'm so glad we're getting another great Sunday show after Alice to Zouroku.
>My name is Ange, and I love every single one of you.
Champion of the lizard people.
Japan has great taste.
Dorothy will probably end up as the girl with the best reaction image material.
But this girl is literally boy.
Truly the Re;creators of the 91 Days genre of our generation
No one. Not even yourself.
This episode seemed to focus on Ange, so hopefully each girl will get an episode focused on them. I'm excited for a Beatrice episode. Her skillset seems like a lot of fun compared to just being a killing machine like the others.
The real plan was to ambush the group using him, who was working for the enemy (hence why Ange told him he was not cut for spy work), and his sister. But it's better to make your own story out of the anime because everything is a lie.
The Kingdom of Albion is a hegemonic power with colonies covering 1/3rd of the world. It is a producer of Cavorite and uses this to power its aerial fleet which is militarily supreme. Ten years prior to the anime there was a Republican revolution which took Albion Island north of London. Currently there is a ceasefire between the two sides. Following the Republican revolution there was a rise in reactionary politics and royal authority was strengthened and the class system became more rigid.
The Republic of Albion was established with a revolutionary army by the Ironside Party which mainly consisted of the Republican faction within the Albion parliament. They also are able to produce Cavorite and have some Cavorite processing technologies superior to the Kingdom. Currently moderate Republicans are in power but military revolutionary factions are on the rise. They have powerful intelligence agencies.
The Cavorite Ball that Ange uses is a top secret weapon that only gets given to agents who are involved in important work for the Republic. Few people are aware of its existence even within the Republic.
Control is the codename of the intelligence agency which gives orders to Ange and her team.
Queens Mayfair School is a male and female boarding school established by the Queen to promote the liberalisation of education with the intention of being a school open to many classes. The Queen had the Princess enrol at the school, there are students accepted from the middle classes and foreigners from the colonies. However contrary to the Queen's intentions the class system still has a big influence and the upper classes dominate.
Cavorite mining is dangerous, takes place under London and can cause blindness. The mechanism of this is no understood but it is believed to be gaseous or powdered Cavorite coming into contact with the optic nerve. Amy could have lost her eyesight while refining Cavorite.
Simple. It was an attempted invocation of the sunk costs fallacy. First they set up the defection of the dude, then he springs his sister on them, with secret orders not to leave without his sister. That way, they can use her as a tripwire, because instead of finding their hideout which they don't know, they just have to keep watch of the sister, whose location they do know. The hope was that they'd just say, well, it's just one more person, and we already have the other guy, let's just give it a shot.
Now, that doesn't address what the plan would be if they just drugged him and took him over the wall like was suggested by the others, so it was kind of a stupid plan. but as long as you ignore that the logic is sound enough.
Plus, you can turn the earlier lie on its head and suspect that she was poisoned by associates of the same group that contacted him to pretend to defect in the first place.
Am i watching Ghost in the Shell again?
She may actually need her glasses.
>Now, that doesn't address what the plan would be if they just drugged him and took him over the wall like was suggested by the others, so it was kind of a stupid plan.
It seemed like they had sufficient surveillance around the wall though. They probably were going to plan an ambush while they were trying to cross although clearly that team wasn't very good.
>He hasn't read the source material
I want to protect Beatrice
>This is legitimately the most complicated anime I've ever watched.
then you haven't watched enough anime to post here you fagot.
Still this probably was my favorite first episode since season 1 of konosuba. so bravo. this might just be gold.
This show was actually…pretty good. The only thing it could be even better is with some Nazis or vampires or Nazi vampires...and Jack the ripper, but I'm quite sure that Jack will happen eventually, is a matter of time. Aside of that…was pretty much perfect.
Now, the only thing that we need is that the Lupin Ninja spies lolitas continue to do Lupin Ninja Spy things every week and don't start to sit around doing nothing or going shopping.
If all the show is like this episode, I’m totally in for the ride.
Clearly not, because the major goal of their operation was figuring out how they were going to get out. If you don't know where their safehouse is, and you don't know what their exfiltration route is, all you can do is set up a tripwire they 'have to' trip before they leave and try to intercept.
>Following the Republican revolution there was a rise in reactionary politics and royal authority was strengthened and the class system became more rigid
SHE'S GONNA MAKE ALBION GREAT AGAIN
Well I didn't say they were good at their job. They were operating on the assumption that they were taking him over the wall. So the escape routes they were anticipating were totally different than what actually happened (Ange pulling over and shooting him).
Flip Flappers wasn't a "masterpiece" by any stretch of the imagination.
It was garbage. If you 3Hzfags could just listen for 4 seconds you'd realize Flip Flappers was a flop of Glasslip tier proportions.
Flip Flappers is not a masterpiece, dude. It's time to accept that while it began perfectly and had a fantastic middle, it crashlanded in the stupidest of ways during the home stretch.
Time will tell if Princess Principal is different. I hope it is.
>I enjoyed Glasslip
Nobody enjoyed Glasslip.
I'm sure you shitposting hard during airing days to make this meme come true.
>Control is the codename of the intelligence agency which gives orders to Ange and her team.
Control, really? Could they come up with anything more shady and ominous sounding for a secret codename?
>I can't believe Ange is going fucking blind.
I really like this piece of speculation. I can see it coming true, especially with the glasses hint.
I'm not even joking, the chances one of the girls has a dick is preety high, with all the keeping secrets thing
The music, character design, voice cast, visuals, OP and ED were all enjoyable. Sure, I had no idea what happened in the last episode, but it was alright regardless.
Quite enjoying this new meme
Re-Kan was legit bad.
The animation was terrible; the story was bizarre; the characters were blurry; Amami wasn't even that cute.
It really is staggering to see the difference in Flip Flap discussion during its season and even just a few weeks afterwards. It's like everyone who liked the show got tired of explaining and defending everything for the 20th time and just moved on.
Those cars didn't look like Victorian-era automobiles.
I know, it was deliberate. Everything but the story was enjoyable.
Why is Ange so uncute and unsexy?
She's just as cold blooded.
Airship aren't victorian era either.
If everything is a lie, then what is the truth?
mfw Princess isn't actually a real person but is the alternate personality of a schizophrenic Ange she subconciously creates in order to deal with the death of her family and the Intelligence agency runs with it so they can harvest her great cavorite energy derived from her schitzphenia for the purpose of creating a cavorite superweapon.
I genuinely loved it and even enjoyed the ending even though I think it could have been handled better. Eventually I just gave up posting in the threads not long after. I occasionally look at the threads when they pop-up now. In part just as much because of the people supporting it and shitposting about it. When you get that kind of shitposting everyone is ultra sensitive to anything that isn't 100% praise.
Ultimately I think an inexperienced first time director made a great go at his first anime but didn't quite pull it off perhaps due to factors outside his immediate control. The shift in tone with the change of writer and seemingly having way too many ideas forced into the show by the production committee brought it down. With the kind of creativity he showed though I can't wait for more of his work.
Nothing is true.
Everything is permitted.
>anime with lolis and cute girls.
>Holy shit MC's name it's the same as mine, this is going to be fun
>actually not MC and fucking dies
Out of those. I've seen pupa, yurikuma and glasslip and I enjoyed all of them. I don't get the hate for SnK either. I get this picture is of ironic nature, but I honestly don't understand why. Yurikuma was great. Pupa was better than its source material and glasslip was unmemorable but severely overhated.
>thought the guy was MC
Are you retarded?
Just because one of the many speculations could turn out to be true doesn't make it a spoiler.
She is fighting on Ange's side right? Therefore she is fighting for the Republic of Albion against the Kingdom of Albion. This pretty much explains that >>159587379
What isn't clear is why.
Please, don't lie.
I self-insert as Dorothy's car.
Ange is the real princess. The republic actually wants to restore the true monarchy. But at the end of the show Ange gets executed by her own supporters because no one can trust anything she says anymore.
You're not funny. I'm just expressing a problem but I guess you could never comprehend someone that doesn't like being spoiled. I don't know who acted mean to you. But that's never a reason to ruin someone else's enjoyment.
You know what I think the Princess is just a bit more radical than the Queen in her love of the people and would rather see the royalty destroyed than leave people to suffer due to the class system keeping them down.
Also if you think about it, when she goes home to the Palace she can gather all sorts of useful information for the Republic assuming her spy identity is secret.
I think the Queens Mayfair schools is inside the Kingdom of Albion and Ange's team all spend their time within enemy territory undercover right?
Hence they were going to take the defector over the wall because that side is the Republic.
I think I see. The subs say "Commonwealth" when what they mean in "The Republic".
In this episode, how were the Princess (group) not already ousted? It seemed like the guy spilled the beans via carrier pigeon. It seems like Ange intercepted the carrier pidgeon, but if that was the case, how did Kimble's crew know to watch for the Princess?
Actually, weren't the Princess transporting the guy a few days earlier than expected? How did they know to watch for them at all?
The whole sister thing also seems like a stupid gamble. All it does it buy them some time and possibly lures out the spies to the sister's location. But there's a possibility that they don't even bother to get the sister. The other possibility (which is what actually happened) was that defecting with her sister creates an inconsistency in the guy's story if the spies find out, complete fucking them.
If they were just going to ambush them while defecting, and they were prepared to do so that night, I feel like they shouldn't have involved his sister at all.
>The republic actually wants to restore the true monarchy
Yeah no, you know what republicans do to royalty and nobles?
What does this mean?
>If they were just going to ambush them while defecting, and they were prepared to do so that night, I feel like they shouldn't have involved his sister at all.
But they didn't know where they were going to cross the wall, so they had to draw them to a place they were keeping eyes on, the hospital.
