NOW I'VE LOST IT
I KNOW I CAN LIE
THE TRUTH EXISTS ON「THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL」
This is your spy for the evening
*teleports behind you*
The concept is neat and the first episode was well executed. I just hope they can keep it up. Also looking forward to when their magic ball will fail them.
Why is she so smug and best?
I know what you are but what am i?
This is my ugly wife Ange.
Say something mean about her.
I am in LOVE with Ange.
What should I do?
The premise for this is retarded;
>Britain, i mean albion, is the greatest world power in ever.
>london splits in half
>a tiny commonwealth forms in that half
>the rest of albion tolerates this
In real life it would take them 30 minutes to get curb stomped buy the military
That's not exactly the absurd part.
No you've just totally misunderstood. The commonwealth isn't just half of London it has the majority of the United Kingdom as its territory. The Kingdom (the big power that was overthrown) has everything south of London, Normandy and Colonies.
Did your holder allow you to watch chinese drawn motion pictures?
Was there a point to blindfolding Eric while taking him to their secret hideout in a large presumably non-secret school with plenty of windows to work out where he is with, or just theatrics?
Needle-chan is best girl.
Hope we see her again.
She got the insurance money and got the medical treatment needed. This will probably eventually backfire and she'll become a villain, or at least a tool for the villains which results in her death.
Well this is surpise of the season for me. In a good way.
Getting big Madoka vibes from the cast of young powerful girls. Only thing that can fuck this show up is how they chose to handle the magic green shit.
All the girls are cute and I would totally sip tea with them.
Well, it's set at the turn of the century. Britain had them since 1903, and since this world seems to be fairly more technologically advanced (and the plot itself is Cold War-era), it's likely they'd have come in earlier since the invention would have been earlier.
What the hell is Ahagon doing here? Back to your work, right now!
>cute as fuck design, unlike his "SUPER REALISTIC WOMYN"
>like a monster
Good show, fucking normal faggot.
Only thing sharper than her katana is her chest.
They didn't kill her.
She's probably dead now though
There is one thing I dont get, how the fuck is the princess of the commie bloc a spy for the west?
Fucking hell, how the fuck is a group of spies hiding in the country top prestigious school?
Show would have been 10/10 AOTY if I weren't a frodo.
I'm not saying that's fact. I'm just pointing out that I've seen Japanese fans say it's put in there for the exact opposite reason. It's amusing that people here are saying it's there for the nips while the nips are saying it's there for weebs.
From previous thread, people were trying to translate 嘘つきはスパイの始まり
To translate this correctly, you need to realize that it is a variation of a saying 嘘つきは泥棒の始まり ("Show me a liar and I'll show you a thief", or literally "a liar is a thief in the making").
Which girl do you think Yuuki would recruit to his team?
I had some time to kill so I went ahead and mixed PriPri with the Darker than Black opening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHzZjDoDsBM
>dat victorian underwear
I can't believe how much people covered themselves with cloth back in the 19th century and still endured the summer every year, even with no fan or air conditioner
>revolver not loaded
>bullets are clearly visible
what am i missing here?
Must be an animation mistake.
>If we were honest with each other, we couldn't stay friends?
Why is this? Are they double agents? Are they gay for each other or do they actually hate each other?
>Are they double agents?
>Are they gay for each other or do they actually hate each other?
>Chise pulling Ange back into the car
It's the little things.
>yuri hate sex while they try to kill each other
I feel like I've read a manga just like this before.
I'm from the future and I can confirm it becomes unanimously the best show of the year.
2 seasons and a movie.
Who? Defectors? The ball Ange uses is super top secret technology that hardly anyone knows exists and only the Commonwealth side even has. Other than that what are defectors going to use? The regular sized balls are huge.
I get the feeling the Queen might be controlled by the people below her more figurehead and hostage than ruler but who knows. Then the Princess being on the Republic's side would make sense.
Was this really necessary? That poor girl did nothing wrong.
It's all lies. The entire thread is a lie.
>hair doesn't use the same colorscheme
What are you talking, everybody loves Chise!
Entire royal family is dead and replaced by imposters except for Princess Ange who escaped and was presumed dead after watching her parents die, eventually to be taken in by the other intelligence agency. Since Princess was just a young girl when she was planted, she had less established loyalties and grew up to question the justness of her faction, leading to her current actions against it.
Tends to only be murricans with "muh pearl harbour" that think that way and more cynical anime fans. The majority of people into anime like Japan, and weebshit and think it is cool.
That sounds even less likely to happen after a civil war but, yeah, what do anime makers know about history and stuff. We ought to discuss about to which fat old man did Ange lose her virginity in order to get secret intel out of him
There's historical precedent. Britain went through a phase of xenophilia late in colonization (IIRC it was a trend set by the king at the time) and collecting exotic foreign cultural icons was an obsession among the elite that bordered fetishistic. The katana was an iconic symbol of that period, because Japan was one of the 'exotic' cultures British aristocracy had the biggest hardon for.
So pretty much any setting british-inspired will include an out-of-place katana because rich british people obsessing over and collecting katanas (or cheap knockoff replicas) was an actual thing.
Something that doesn't make sense to me.
Why would they ever tell Eric the Princess was a spy?
Even if they were 100% certain he was a legitimate defector you wouldn't want an average person to walk around with that kind of information. He could tell anyone.
No. It's terrible and the girls are some of the least cute and sexy ones I've seen in a long time.
Daily reminder this is going to happen.
Hey anon, Ange lies a lot.. So why wouldn't she lie about having a
penis. After all, what did the drive see here that made him so shocked?
I doubt her underage vulva is so worn out by then that he can see the internal organ of the vaginal. Furthermore, what? Child prostitution was rife back then. Right up to the 1920's. Google The Great Binge. Nobody gave a shit. There were literally laws protecting animals welfare before laws protecting children's.
At worst he saw her puffy
bloomers. It's also exactly what they expect you to think rather than, IT'S A PENIS!
He's actually surprised because he's about to ram the other car, which happens in the very next scene. He shouldn't be able to see Ange's girl parts (boyparts for you faggots) anyways because she's not nopan.
So "show me a lie and I'll show you a spy"? I'm not good at this stuff.
>Can we bully her at least?
I'll cut you.
What's that link between Dorothy and Ange?
Because Austrian-Hungarian Empire, which wasn't landlocked, was disbanded after WW1 and the leader didn't change? There's loads of daft shit like the Japanese being honoary British Admirals/Generals when they declared war on them in WW2.
The only bad thing about the ED is that they for some reason thought it was a brilliant idea to have seiyuu with no grasp of English at all sing the whole fucking song in English. What were they thinking?
This as well. The last anime song done in English I think I enjoyed were the .hack//sign songs. Who the fuck decided this? I know it's set in Britain and all that, but it's jarring. Too upbeat for what is quite serious show.
Reeee. People are making assumptions. The intro says that despite being a super Empire, London rebelled and became it's own city state. Yet people are saying that the entire Empire + London rebelled and the protags are on the otherside which only controls the rest of Britain.
This is a load of bollocks and isn't stated anywhere.
I have no problem with little girls being some overpowered bullshit. But for this case I would have yearned for a little bit more balance considering the tone of this whole show.
Kinda agree with your taste of character design. However, shit design is the best design. Whether you guys think it good or not, I like it because they look ugly, unironically. And I had high hope for Pingpong Girls last year because of the poor design but the show disappointed me.
It explicitly says the empire split in the introduction, not that a single city rebelled, and the London Wall we see on the map at the start clearly doesn't wrap around London entirely, but only the western side. The extent of the holdings of both Royal/Republican sides aren't explicitly stated, but we know that the royals are in control of London and probably at least Normandy, and the colonies as well (as stated in promotional material mentioning students coming to Mayfair from the colonies).
In order to not be small enough/actually a threat to the royalty, the commonwealth would most likely need to make up the rest of at least mainland Britain.
So, the protags are the underdogs? Bit shit, really. Would have been nice for them to not be. Also clearly this is an analogy to the Revolutionary War. Britain has never been a Republic.
My issue wasn't any SoL in this particular episode. But SoL, designs etc in general are just too common place. Once you've seen one SoL anime do you really need another that does the exact same thing but with worse production values? You can call me names all you want. It didn't bother me in this episode. But if all anime do the same thing just because it sells why would their anime sell? SoL is boring if it doesn't have any depth. If the people don't understand what makes SoL good you get another, by-the-numbers, GochiUsa.
Because the green glow that surrounds her when she uses Cavorite to levitate is similar to the blue glow that surrounds Contractors when they use their powers in DtB So someone made an edit to a screencap as a reference.
It's not difficult to infer.
Ange dancing with Princess when?
What kind of hat is the princess wearing in the credits?
Ange's a very ugly name . Sound like an old woman suffering.
>FlipFlap have more fanservice
>If you're not going to post. Don't reply.
It be like it do, anon? It be like it do?
>No, there's only 1 correct definition for moe
This is where you are mistaken. Language evolves. Definitions change. Words meaning one thing mean the opposite the other day. Words and their meaning are defined by what people use them for. Nothing else. They should've taught you this in school
Yeah you tell that fascist that definitions change. That fucking racist.
What? Fascist and racist don't have any relation to that person?
WELL WORDS CHANGE DEFINITIONS AND MEAN DIFFERENT THINGS DEPENDING ON MY ARGUMENT REEEEE!
I started this series only because of 3Hz. They never disappointed me before. I loved their first anime.
I'm not disappointed here too after 1st episode. Normally I wouldn't pick it up (other studio, especially Madhouse and other overrated crap).
Mate, I'm making a point that shit doesn't just change. Definitions are applied based on the majority assuming they mean one thing and then people of merit, in the West's case, Oxford and Webster's Dictionaries who decide what is and what isn't a word and what it may or may not mean. Going 'Moe changes definitions' can be right, but that means there is no accepted definition of 'moe' and that nobody has agreed on it. Unless there IS a definition and in such cases, there now has to be a major zeitgeist shift for it to suddenly mean something else.
>I'm making a point that
You're coming of as a rambling autist. And did at no point attempt to sound reasonable or comprehensible (or calm for that matter). All I did was state a fact. I wasn't looking to argue with you. I didn't read your entire post at all. As soon as you mentioned 'facist' I stopped giving a damn.
Why would he betray the people who (would have potentially) helped save his and his sister's life?
We also don't know the dynamics of the royal family and the princess's situation, and how deep the rebellion goes.
And also like the previous Anon said, if he even told anyone in the Commonwealth, who would believe him? There are likely all sorts of rumors about the monarchy over there already.
Again, the premise of the Anon's question was if he was assuredly an actual defector, not if he was being duplicitous (which he of course was).
Thus, telling some other spy faction that the Princess was also a spy isn't even in the cards of my reply, but rather that he would tell someone in the Commonwealth after they helped him defect.
And naturally, after he was given this bombshell information, they kept him locked up and under surveillance, which of course allowed them to intercept the one correspondence he did try to make.
>watch the first episode
>I love the music, feels Kajiura as fuck
>checks who's doing the music
>It's actually her
I love every soundwave she produces, and you can't stop me for liking it.
Which makes me definitely pick up this show without doing the 3-episodes-rule thing.
I forgot about the premise bit. Gotta admit I don't have an answer for it. Even if he only told people on the other side, they have to expect that their enemies have spies over there, too. But the Princess and her team was assigned this mission. There's really not much point keeping the leader of a spy group from meeting every defector. Maybe we'll see an explanation later for why it's not a big deal, or maybe they had contingencies on the other side of the wall like planning to keep him under surveillance.
>Maybe we'll see an explanation later for why it's not a big deal
Yeah, that's why I brought up the point that we don't yet know how deep the tentacles of the Princess's rebellion go.
It could be that even if whispers that she were a spy reached the palace, she somehow wouldn't face any repercussions. At least WITHIN the palace. And honestly, probably not in the public either, since she's so popular most people would reject a rumor like that.
Granted, I don't necessary think that's the case, but it could be.
>ITT: lolicons, moetards, actual faggots, trapfaggots, retard pretenders, and actual retards unironically discuss/like/pick up Shit Show Of The Season (SSOTS)
Yup, birds of a feather flock together. Fucking DROPPED
>"Kyoto is moe" == "Kyotoquack"
From now on, I will refer to moe as "quackery". Because it is.
You forgot that "moe or 萌え" is a distinctly japanese term and has not evolved in anyway whatsoever in japan.
The "moe" you know and use and thought has "evolved" is nothing but weeb delusion.
The original japanese term is still the same as always and has not changed.
>import a japanese term for use in the western world
>corrupt it's meaning and change it's definition completely
>claim it's the correct "evolved" term and trying to remind people of the origin of the term is irrelevant
You can't just steal words, change them and then claim you're correct. Tell any jp otaku about what your "moe" means and they'll either be confused or laugh at you.
Doesn't change the fact I'm right though. You can't take a chiefly japanese term, change the meaning and expect to pass it off as the new definition, when it has no meaning in english at all. Don't forget, you're using a japanese term. It's not an english word.
Good thing Princess doesn't seem to go on any missions with them and instead just stays behind to drink tea and write reports. Her thighs must be the perfect size and softness to straddle Ange's head.
Whom are you quoting? Ad hominem has nothing to do with 'not having an argument left', and there's no expire date on arguments. So it's not like they can run out in such a state either. Are you ESL by any chance? 4chan is an American site. Please learn its language.
True. Based on the OP she doesn't seem that used to action though. Maybe she only goes out on missions that don't involve fighting or car chases. I bet we'll see Ange protecting her during a mission or two though.
Look at how comfortable she is hanging on to Ange and how happy she was that Ange was coming to save her a second earlier. Princess clearly trusts her with her life.
Ange is a GIRL
She has a VAGINA
She's the prettiest GIRL of the season and also my wife!

>>but I'm right
>If all you care about is being right then ironically enough you are wrong.
You completely ignored the argument because you have no way to dispute it and deflected it.
Yes, I know. It must suck not to.
Don't lie here:
hai spy dess
I agree, anon.
I want to RAVAGE Ange's orifices.
Suppose Ange said 'I'm virgin'
Would it be a lie or not?
Can 3Hz do anything wrong? First FLFL and now PP
Thank god they are willing to try original shows. Great studio
Most of /a/ won't give you any reasons as to why it's dogshit beyond "teehee muh 883" and "muh 3Hz yurishit".
It was a solid show with somewhat weak final episodes, but certainly far from the shitshow people accuse it of being. It's diehard fans do overrate it too, but the naysayers are far more vocal.
Was perfectly fine, people were just blind to the fact that the underlying drama needed to be brought to a head and resolved. Too many people assumed it would be CGDCT when it could never just be that given the way the show was setup.
