New ep today. Hopefully subs soon.
Regardless of who is best girl one thing is certain, they all have top tier asses. The boys too for that matter.

>not playing the waltz music
How hard is to make a 2 minute long full-fledged dance where we as the viewers get to enjoy some nice movements and music on the screen and not just get told by third parties how cool what is happening off screen is.
The new episode was great. I hope we see the final results next episode though. It is getting really drawn out.
it would be nice, but is probably really complicated and would show how shit Tatara actually is, remember that you are never shown that in the manga, despite every character saying he is still amateur level
Looks like they got those people that did that one episode of Cinderella Girls to work on the next episode.
In the end the manga is superior to the anime, is a way better experience to read it and listen waltz, tango or whatever they are dancing. Is kinda sad because if they had the budget this could have been AOTS
This cut will be beautiful on the blu-rays with a bitrate that can keep up.
Did you also complain in Your Lie in April when they changed the performance music to sound more surreal? The point of the music is for tone. The scenes would have been far less emotional with just basic competition music playing the entire time.
How can something so pure make such a lewd face?
>an entire episode to show off a ONE minute dance
I fucking hate this kind of pacing, should I just read the manga?
Feels great, doesn't it?
>The scenes would have been far less emotional with just basic competition music playing the entire time.
The dance is suppose to work with the music and everyone there was plenty emotional. If they can't find the proper music and animation to do it, then director just sucks ass. How am I suppose to immerse myself in the atmosphere that the anime is trying to portray when I am not looking at the same thing that the people inside the anime are looking and being impressed? It completely threw me off the moment they stopped the waltz. And the most pathetic part is that the "animation" was even that synced even with the random ass background music.
I'm glad I'm an animeonly for once because this episode was still enjoyable. Although it was ridiculously drawn-out, how much fucking viewer commentary do you need?
Are you retarded? You're not in the show. The actual storyboarding and choreography is not made for the audience in the show. It's made for us the actual viewer. The dance goes through a few different phases and each has their own tone which is where the different music tracks come in. Having one basic dance track throughout would not show how in the beginning they are struggling to gain the audiences attention with variations sprinkled here and there, to the flower blooming past the frame.
Notice how the attention is at first focused on Fujita and there's more tense music since he's trying his hardest to beat Shizuku. Then the attention shifts to Mako and we have a totally different tone. The music softens to show off how incredibly beautiful she and her performance are. This is such basic shit I don't get how you don't understand it.
You the viewer are not supposed to be watching what the people in the show are watching because it would be a regular fucking dance routine. This is a fictional show and to get the point across they use surreal visuals and different music tracks.
Yes. She's literally made for rough hate sex. And out of Tatara's partners so far, she has the most development with him. I'm pretty sure she's going to be his long term partner. It makes sense too since Shizuku and Mako were both "borrowed".
What's going through his mind at that very moment?
For those who skip the ED.
That was a 10/10 episode. Really good.
Oh boy I have a feeling the second cour will be one hell of a bumpy ride
If they showed the real thing no one would be moved by it. Go to youtube, watch a 1 minute waltz and see what it does to you. It's the reaction from the audience and other characters, the internal monologues, the dramatic stylized stills, the emotional music and the flashbacks, put together appropriately, that conveys the intended message. This is basic stuff for any kind of sports anime or film. If they showed that scene in a realistic manner all those reactions would look comically out of place.
Manga had the same problem, it was all flashly and ridicilous and amazing but then the other characters say how horrible his dancing is, like what? I still am not sure if he's suppose to be leading in the dancing with her pair, or if he's suppose to be moving in tact with her, four legs, take the reigns, the mangaka makes all of it look good! When everything is good I don't know when the characters are dancing shitty!
I need that inspirational ost. You know which one. It makes every scene it plays in way better.
Turn Tatara into the ultimate dancing machine. It's funny that animeonly watchers thought that he would be Tatara's love rival or something, but that couldn't be further than the truth. He's one of the few people who supports and stands behind Tatara to help him.
>Now I can only imagine if MAPPA would've done a better job at adapting this.
>Inuyashiki is 80% CG.
You're joking right? I was actually looking forward to this
For a moment there I thought the judges were all pedos and were just having weird delusions about her.
If your basing that opinion off of SnB, then that's a bad comparison. Bahamut has shit tons of money poured into it courtesy of Cygames. Just look at the decline in quality of YoI after the first two eps.
Holy shit are you me? I couldn't stand that show after the first few episodes when the novelty wore off.
That show had no respect for your time, reusing the dance animations like a fucking magical girl show, but at least you're seeing girls get undressed in those.
Even Panty and Stocking made them into a joke, but the only joke in YoI was the animation with the only benefit being "I guess this shit is sorta choreographed"
Then I wake up and find out everybody is hailing the show as the second coming and the best animated show ever of everything? What happened?
The most recent trailer barely has a whole lot of animation, but a bunch of the shots had CG models and the last scene was CG too. Hell, even the first trailer was a bunch of CG. Don't count on most, if not all the action being done in CG.
Fujos happend. And the add to that the type that don't even watch anime latched on to it because it was one giant faggot festival, and being gay is in style these days. So for most people who don't watch anime, the animation looked amazing since they didn't have anything to compare it to.
I would have though I.G.'s A-team would have done better to be honest. Didn't Haikyuu have consistently good animation? I didn't watch it so I don't know but I see enough webms of it.
I understand your gripe, but come on, this "it has to be literal" is getting old, its not an obligation for a show to show you the most intimate details of their main activity.
e. g. complaining on 3 gatsu no lion for not teaching you how to play shogi
As far as I remember nobody complained on Nodame Cantabile for not teaching you piano or how to be an orchestra director.
Yes its nice to learn something because you are reading a manga / watching an anime, but activities can also be used as frameworks.
By some of the posters logic, I should be buttmad because Macross didnt taught me how to ride a transforming airplaine or to sang like min may in order to obliterate my enemies
This episode was INCREDIBLE. everything I was hoping it would be. the amount of care and attention to detail the anime staff is putting into it is astounding. this anime is seriously a candidate for AOTY.
this shit is getting worse every week
>qualities taken from nowhere
>characters saying "wow this is great!" and right after a static frame who says absolutely nothing and after again milf blond sucking tatara's balls
Really, guys. The manga is better?
This looks like rotoscoping. Not that I'm complaining, but the level of sakuga is insane for a series, this is the kind of stuff we can only get in OVAs.
Some /a/nons thinks that the concept of budget belongs in the realm of fantasy
Part of the appeal of SnB is due to the high levels of production allowed by the high budget it has.
In some of the China's stuff we can watch how much money they are pouring, It will be not long until we get a series with higher overall quality than any anime on that season.
You know, I HOPE this thing happens soon, so the japanese get their butts in gear and rekindle their passion for quality over quantity.
This. Although Hyoudo is a fucking genius in his own right, his own true calling is to teach. Nurturing his own rival is what's going to awaken him to this realization.
To be fair the first series had an incredible dance sequence as well. Both were most likely rotoscoped, but only as far as to properly map motion as the character designs, proportions and what not were all still on point despite the rotoscoping.
You're a fucking idiot. All of the static frames are basically FULL AND DUAL PAGE SPREADS in the manga with the text commentary overlaying or bordering it on smaller panels. This is all exactly how the narrative in the manga goes.
So what is the point in doing a animatic adaptation if you do a lot of static frames?
I WANT TO SEE DANCE, NIGGA! No one dance in this shit, the characters just react to the dance and overtalk in an attemt of make tatara credible.
>open new episode with scene from last episode
>repeat a full length flashback we already saw last episode
>follow that with another full flashback to the first scene of this episode that we already saw last episode
Don't do this to me Ballroom, I love you
Holy shit I thought you were memeing.
This is your OTP for tonight. Say something nice about them!
>Inuyashiki is 80% CG.
So just like the manga then
I doubt it. And to be fair, that's not the hairstyle she uses when she's on the dance floor. Those illustrations with her hair down are just there to make her more appealing for the covers.
They're so awkward they became unteasable.
Really, did it pick up at all in the last 6 episodes?
No it got worse writing wise. The visuals are still nice, and the fight from the most recent episode was amazing. But for your own sanity just wait until it finishes and then binge it. There are only four eps left.
What the fuck? Thankfully nobody takes those faggots seriously. I'm honestly surprised that site is even still around.
>Mako-chan has everyone's hands moving on their own while onii-chan can only watch as she blooms in front of everyone
>being taught about a skills != displaying ability in said skill
3-Gatsu is character centric show wherein shogi moves aren't necessarily needed to be shown. This is mostly because teaching Shogi doesn't translate well into what the series presents itself and may even bog it down. Just imagine 3-Gatsu being presented like Akagi and tell me if it's still the same show.
Macross is a poor example too because it displays actual robot combat. Not people screaming how cool the fighting looks like. Don't even get me started on Nodame Cantabile on how well they presented the music that matches the show. And these two show actually strongly show what ballroom did wrong. One it doesn't display or give service towards the actions which the series relies on strongly (Dnacing) like Macross and second, it doesn't show immerse you in a ballroom environment unlike what Nodame Cantabile does with its orchestras.
I don't understand. Episode 5 was pretty fucking top tier. How can they fuck this up so bad? I hope the director just sucks at everything but high-blooded antics. So that he gives Chinatsu's adaptation justice.
>intricacies of the reaction and not the dance
You fucking dunce. Why not just play the manga on a voiced slideshow with sounds? Fucking kek. Also, the manga's point is showing the dance to impress readers and not the reaction of the in-universe spectators. The shaft-tier picture show isn't doing that any justice.
>Also, the manga's point is showing the dance to impress readers and not the reaction of the in-universe spectators.
the readers aren't expected to know how to react to the dance you fucking moron. just like every 'sports' anime/manga out there the reaction of the peanut gallery is supposed to tell the viewer/reader what to think about any given situation. if TMD were adapted to an anime would you critique them for not accurately displaying the inns and outs of heart surgery? did you have the same reactions to the lack of detail to the 'baking' in yakitate japan or the 'cooking' in shougeki souma? holy fucking shit
The problem is not teaching things, it's just they didn't use the animation medium to show actual dancing on an important scene like this. They're stuck with close-up shots and flashbacks.
Nodame did show actual music being played (even though it was always cut by some god awful character commentary).
Another anime that did it right recently was Hibike. They showed an actual orchestra performance in full without any cut or annoying character talking. And that was a very powerful scene.
Ballroom is a great manga, but i too was hoping for a fully animated dance scene with music matching. What's the point of animation if you don't do animation?
Mako's blooming scene could have been much more powerful. Well I still have hope for the quickstep variation.
>readers aren't expected to know how to react to the dance
I'm sorry that you're too retarded to know how to react to anything and need someone to spoonfeed it for you. There we go again with the 'ins and outs' and 'details' bullshit I keep seeing people defend the adaptation. Now, I get your point. Sports anime does require reactions to help immerse you in the setting. But you're making a huge misunderstanding and a disservice to the author if you think her drawings have no intentions of showing off the dance. And only done to get people riled up with their reactions. This is especially the case for a movement filled sports anime. You keep setting up poor examples for comparison like TMD, Yakitate, and Cooking. Which are in theme sports anime but aren't necessarily one because of the lack of action and are extremely reliant on exaggerated reactions. Instead of more appropriate examples like Eyeshield 21, Slam Dunk, One outs and more action-oriented sports anime. Hell, you can even take Nodame as an example on how to immerse the audience within a high skill-based theme rather than overly relying on reactions like you presume.
>But you're making a huge misunderstanding and a disservice to the author if you think her drawings have no intentions of showing off the dance
You're a fucking idiot. The entire episode was VERBATIM to the 60 pages devoted to the dance in the manga. That's fucking right: the author spent page after page, double spread after double spread of single shot poses and internal monologue reactions of those watching it. 1 minute = 60 fucking pages. The episode was cut and paste. Moron.
Fucking kek. Are you seriously saying that the author had zero intentions of showing of the dance? Despite the limitations of her medium? And you think the director copy pasting a manga which is static medium in nature to the anime medium actually did a good thing? I don't know which one of us is the actually idiot here.
That's her friend, Chinatsu doesn't even like her.
I know apparently this series is basically asexual but FUCK if I don't want Tattara and Mako to get together. IG did a great job with their relationship and development, and they're just such cute nervous dorks. Also, really nice ED change.
>She's just your tsundere
Well yeah, she's afraid Tatara is going to left her behind.
More like she wants to beat her friend, which she did.
Well I actually just learned about 5 minutes ago this is 24 episodes when I was convinced all season it was one-cour so I'm all for it. Shame though cause I like Mako a lot, but if Chinatsu has good chemistry I'll be satisfied.
The expressions they made when they are dancing, it's hilarious.
I pray God they don't fuck up her face, like this one >>161809858 what the fuck man
I didn't like that hairstyle at first too when he was with Mako, it's done really half-assed. But now he looks more manly when he's with Chinatsu, I like that.
i don't know how i feel about komatsu (who is most likely going to land the role) voicing her. needs a more gruff/boyish/tsundere voice. i really hope the announce who is officially cast soon
>gay for Tatara
There's nothing wrong with that.
WE ARE RUNN- I MEAN DANCING IN THE 90s.
>don't touch my- I mean our boy
It's just tsundere thing.
Chinatsu uses the form うち "uchi", which is a sort of playful, intimate first person way to refer somebody/thing to a third person.
うち の おかあさん Uchi no okaasan
わたし の おかあさん Watashi no okaasan
Are formally identical in "My mother." Except maybe a slight deviation in "Uchi no" being "A mother I/we own" and "Watashi no" being "A mother I have"
Uchi can also be used as plural without any additions. So the same
Uchi no okaasan = Our mother
Because you're talking as/for the whole family.
Long story short. It's "ours" because she's alluding to ownership with "uchi" but she isn't exactly being frank about it being just "her" who owns her, although she probably is talking about the two of them as a unit when she says "ours". Or then she isn't and means it as singular, where it would be "my".
Right, I was supposed to post this as well.
うちの子 is literally "Our boy"
So, despite all the lengthy explanation, that's pretty much all there is.
The release is always around 6th. If there's a weekend there, it'll move to the next Monday. I'll post the translations here this time, instead of directly making a batoto release, as there's more of a crowd for the show currently.
And that actual release will be around 2 weeks from that if all goes as usual.
Ballroom has good animators working on it, but the team has imposed a consistent drawing limit of 4000 frames per episode, which is very average. Hence, at best the show's good animation is delivered in short bursts. We don't know if this is to manage the production schedule over two seasons, having a conservative animation budget, or both.
That this even supposed to mean?
Why this show doesn't get more exposure? It's pretty good.
Dude, it's a handsome man and a beautiful woman together, DANCING.
Those western ugly women and bald hispter men obviously will hate it. And not to mention, fujos doesn't even care about this because it's not gay like YOI.
We already had onsen chapter, can't wait for beach/valentines day.
>It perpetuated the evil patriarchy and shit
That's hilarious and stupid. Oh well, that's a good thing, I guess. I'm taking some ballroom lessons now, I won't run into any feminists at the ballroom at least.
The guys must be sweating their godamn balls off after a dance in that tux, jesus christ. You'd pretty much have to take it to cleaners every fucking time because you've soaked it in sweat.
I can't imagine them breaking up at this point. I don't think anybody else can ever handle Chinatsu like Tatara can, so them breaking up means she quit dancing. Which might be the only way he does switch partners, but that would be disappointing.
Well yeah, you're meant to have them dry cleaned after every use. They're also made of thinner fabrick than you'd except, only a single layer for the coat usually, so you don't boil. Well, not so much, anyway.
So she'll just get a super alpha male like Sengoku then, she's already gotten so much exposure in this tournament. People will be eyeing her. She eve has the potential to be successful overseas apparently.
Tatara is still afraid of being Alpha, they actually hit the point of unison but it felt alien to him so he broke off. I think he's about ready to embrace it though.
>I think he's about ready to embrace it though
I think he did, as of now.
He's just really good at adapting to his partner. As for 'alpha' leading he's not really fond of it. So he's being 'strong and scary' for Chinatsu for now.
>So he's being 'strong and scary' for Chinatsu for now.
The funny thing is only Kiyoharu noticed this. Truly he's a genius.
He's not good at it because he hasn't been trained with it. It's the only reason he could do that sacrificial dance to elevate Mako because it would go against the grain of an experienced lead. It gave him a bad habit that wasn't easy to shake off.
its when you fuck someone as hard as possible because they did something that pissed you off, so u treat them like shit and manhandle the fuck outta em, maybe a little slapping and spitting, definitely choking
It's all depend on the mangaka want to change the storyline or adding new characters or not. I understand changing partners is a normal thing in the dancesport world, but we'll see what will the author delivers us in the future. Hopefully she gets better, too.
That, and It's just his nature I guess.
It's cliche as hell, but that's the thing with main shounen character. Honestly I don't usually like sport manga that much, but this one got my attention and I like it a lot, mainly because the art is so stunning and it's focus on 2 characters overcoming their boundaries and becoming better dancers.
>so u treat them like shit
Giving someone pleasure =/= treating them like shit
>a little slapping and spitting, definitely choking
That's barely hardcore
If somebody did something that pissed me off he/she is probably a fucking moron, and I'm clearly not going to waste any more of my time on them, let alone rewarding them with sex.
OTP right here bros.
Also, does anyone here have the full picture of this?
Not 'steal' in NTR sense but in a plot device sense. Every partner change so far was done to broaden Tatara's horizons and make him a more versatile and experienced dancer. the next phase of his development will require a different partner.
Hints have already been dropped. Kiyoharu being able to dance normally with Chii-chan and Shizuku showing concern that someone like Chii-chan may come up from behind and leave her in the dust
No. I personally think mystery partner from chapter 1 is his Mom. I'm just saying that Tatara's development will likely see him cycle through different partners. He may even go back to Mako and Chii in turns as the plot progression demands
To be honest, without even getting into the actual work and budget needed to make a realistic animation of a full dance,
the concept of that dance is incredibly hard to translate into an actual dance.
The animators will need to request from a choreograph to invent an actual dance with the specific moves that Fujita knows that will make Mako "bloom".
That's a lot to ask in animation.
as far as I concern, >>161811720
has sated my needs for animation porn.
Also, I really love how Mako was dancing alone in the ED. Though I wish the background or her silhouette were golden-yellow.
I love how they matched Mako's dress with the painting and the dance floor.
Just wait for the big reveal. His mom left him and his dad as a kid to pursue a dancing career in the west. This would explain Tatara's genius level body language interpretation skill. He's got the dancing gene. Working his way up to world championship where he partners with with his mom. It's fucking pottery.
What is wrong if Tatara is dancing with Shizuku in the first chapter? It could be because of some special event or something. As things are now I don't see her and Hyodo "break up" and I don't see why Tatara would be fine with that. Chinatsu herself thinks that Tatara is her last chance and the only one who can tolerate her. How could they switch partners?
Unless she dies or something.
Chinatsu is the main female character. He wont switch to another girl. The author agrees don't bother her about it.
Think she might be the dancing
>Next Episode: "Quality"
are you ready
I'm not ready, I'm not ready at all
pls be fixed
Got into this series 2 days ago and got all caught up just yesterday. Now I'm suffering. This is the second sickly author I'm following now who's gonna be pure suffering to wait for.
Got surprised that there was an anime, though. At least that's something to get into. Who's subbing this series?
A reminder that Japan will NEVER beat American ballroom dancers:
Feels like there partnership is supposed to parallel Sengoku and Hongou as well as the fact that the manga has been hyping up a "wild mare" like Chinatsu having a lot of potential, yada yada, since the partner is the one who decides the upper limit of what the couple can do, yada yada.
She's also the only other amateur Takuto knows.
Around Kugimiya's introduction, I believe.
I think he's changing, though. Didn't he once think that he hated the music Chinatsu was listening to on their way back after camp, but then told her that he liked it? There's also the fact that he's been getting more easily irritable and pissed off, and Hyoudou being excited at seeing Takuto becoming more and more "twisted".
I think that's the entire point of what Hyoudou's mom was trying to teach Takuto. Trying to get him to be more like Kugumiya (in this one respect, at least). Hyoudou is doing the same thing too, actually, by making Takuto more and more frustrated and aggressive.
It's why Chinatsu was happy when Takuto "stopped caring about her" and just did what he wanted. Her challenge, though, is learning to be a proper follower for him.
I love these two so much lads. It's only going to get violent I imagine. They're mirroring Sengoku and Hongou after all.
>complaining on 3 gatsu no lion for not teaching you how to play shogi
Oh, but here is where you are wrong. 3gatsu no Lion actually did really well to show the shogi matches. It's not about teaching the viewer to play, but it couldn't do without showing actual games.
Did you fucks actually watched it? There was a whole shtick about at least teaching people the basics of movement. Though, of course, that was not the point of the conversation anyway.
I don't think Tatara has it in him to be Sengoku 2.0. He may be getting more confident, but I doubt he'll ever get to Sengoku's level of no giving any fucks. Chinatsu is definitely taking after Hongou though. It probably helps that she idolizes her.
I think it could work if they skip some minor details of the manga like side characters' flashback and focus on the main thing, which is dancing and competitions. The camp would only need to take 1 episode. That's what I think. Your thought?
Yeah, it's not like this was 60 pages long in the manga or anything.
They should have skipped all that so you could complain about them rushing things instead.
came to post this, wasn't dissapointed
I'm just waiting for the scene where
Shizuku cries by herself in the bathroom at the end of the tournament.I didn't feel sorry for her at all, she deserved it for being such a bitch to Tatara during this entire arc desu.
Remember when she got in Tatara's face about the comment that he didn't even make about making Mako a better dancer than her? Well that's exactly what he did and she lost the Queen of the Ballroom title to Mako.
Yeah sure, but I won't dance with my mom, never.
Bahamut looks good and is generally very polished simply because MAPPA began animating it very early (for its standard, anyway). Funny thing, it was actually being animated at the same time as Yuuri. The main reason why some productions are good and some are bad is always time (and talent involved), money isn't really such an issue directly related to animation quality since animators get paid almost nothing anyway.
Tatara's mom looks to be quite the MILF. But I doubt she will pop up in the story, and if she does I don't think she'd have anything to do with dancing. If she did I feel like either his dad or Tatara himself would have mentioned it by now.
Komatsu is actually a great choice. She fits with well with the tomboy standoffish girl character who is still very feminine.
I don't think it's mentioned, but he seems pretty young there. I hope we at least get a reason as to why she decided to just up and leave one day without even saying goodbye to her child.
Who the fuck cares about animation? Man sakugafags are truly the scum of the anime industry. I care way more about close-ups of faces being on model than fluid animation.
>But anime is an animation medium
No, the reason why people like anime is for the stories and characters. Animation is a bonus. Also, most of the time it's just not feasible for a TV anime to offer the animation quality that sakugafucks are asking for. You should just scurry the fuck off to movies/OVAs if you're into anime for purely the animation.
If it was possible yes I would like constant dancing animation too. But it's not. There's no time, there's no money, there's not enough animators. You need to be real self-absorbed for you to keep demanding this season after season after season.
>He wont switch to another girl
It's too early to tell. You don't know what the author is planning. Personally I think he'll stick with Chinatsu and she might even replace Shizuku in the flashforward here, but that's just speculation. You shouldn't spout shit like it's a matter of fact.
>did it pick up
honestly anon if you didnt like it by ep 3 it probably wasnt for you
never thought id be into it myself but I feel the pacing to be pretty good, but I never read the manga
I want to know how actual Ballroom dancers feel about this series. Like many non-conventional sports anime, I like what I'm seeing a lot but I have no clue whether the artists actually intricately knows about Ballroom dancing. It's sort of like how I had no idea if FKMT knew how the fuck to play Shogi until someone told me "He knows exactly what the fuck he is doing". If that makes sense.
>ara ara anon-kun
glad i am not reading the manga desu because of this. I have no complaints regarding the pacing - besides, why rush something so beautiful senpai? This was their big break, let them have an episode for it
Loses what? She's Tatara's official partner. They even filled out the forms and everything. Unless you're referring to romance on the other hand. In which case don't expect much because this is first and foremost a sports series. Aside from a few crushes some characters have on others, there is absolutely no romance in this as of yet.
Mangaka interviews judges, dancers and spectators. Anime staff learnt how to dance in order to animate.
Mini documentary pre-anime release with the staff, VAs and actual dancers
They upload videos about Tatata and Gaju VAs learning how to dance with pros, Japan Dancesport Federation is backing the anime.
Damn, this is serious business. I enjoyed the show already and had some idea they did their homework, but this is a nice thing to know, I appreciate the anime and manga even more.
Man, wish I could understand this. The director seems really passionate and dedicated to doing the manga and ballroom dancing justice. If only the budget was there to realize the adaptation to its full potential.
I think Hyoudou is too autistic to care. That and he's probably used to it by now.
This is actual, honest to god lumbar lordosis.
I'm not holding out for it, but I'm really hoping it's a callback to the first tournament where he simply replaced Kiyoharu for the dance.
I just caught up to the manga, and I didn't think I would get on the Chinatsu love, but she's a really good partner for him. I want to know what circumstances there would be for them to legitimately break up.
>reusing dance animations
that's how figure skating works anon, you have one program for the entire season. the jumps/elements change within each program.
>"I guess this shit is sorta choreographed"
by Kenji Miyamoto who's a big time FS choreographer, if you think skate-fags dropped the show after the first three episodes think again
the animation fucking shit the bed around the middle episodes, I give you that, but it at least had the balls to animate every single one of it's choreographed programs unlike Ballroom which pussies the fuck out and just show a hand fun of keyframes.
you're a faggot
>that's how figure skating works anon, you have one program for the entire season. the jumps/elements change within each program.
And you don't think after showing us the first seconds of a routine we could go elsewhere and have more story bits woven in? Instead of having to sit there waiting for the sequence to end, again.
>by Kenji Miyamoto who's a big time FS choreographer, if you think skate-fags dropped the show after the first three episodes think again
Well good shit.
Ballroom apparently is also enjoying professional references. Skate-fags would've continued with the show regardless of what it was, just as ballet-fags have watched Tutu and ballroom-fags watch Ballroom. As long as the shit isn't completely offensive to the sport, they'll watch it just out of interest in how it's being portrayed. Apparently figure skating is full of fags, but I guess everybody knew that already so not much was learned there.
>the animation fucking shit the bed around the middle episodes, I give you that, but it at least had the balls to animate every single one of it's choreographed programs unlike Ballroom which pussies the fuck out and just show a hand fun of keyframes.
Ok, this is one argument I can't understand.
First of, hand animating multiple minute and half long dance sequences is a pipe-dream and even if they have the resources to do it, I don't think they should go for it.
If you go through the manga and compare it to the anime, you can see most of the keyframes as straight manga panels. Are you saying they shouldn't do that? Who is that in service of? The manga fans wanting to see the manga in action? New fans going back to read the manga after watching the anime? I imagine this would only be because of Yuris on ice setting a standard it itself couldn't uphold.
>tl;dr you're a faggot
Rich coming from a YoI-fag, but I'm not denying it. Otherwise I wouldn't be arguing over internets.
>it's a callback to the first tournament where he simply replaced Kiyoharu for the dance
It is. It's just in that page, the roof is different. Shitposters like to think that's the future ending, it's definitely not.
But that page refers to the All-England Championship finals, while the first time Tatara performed was the Mikasa Cup. There's also the fact that for the All-England there's at least one reporter covering Tatara as an "unknown Japanese" while the Mikasa Cup didn't really acknowledge his existence (if IIRC).
>But that page refers to the All-England Championship finals
Source: Your ass. We don't know if Tatara ever make it to England or not, and the first chapter never mentioned this. Stop spouting shit you make up, just because it looks like Blackpool doesn't mean it's a guarantee future ending yet.
Why are you so upset? It's the first page in the series, and there's nothing that really disproves he's at Blackpool, whether to watch or perform.
How is it bullshit speculation? I just said I hoped it was a callback to the first tournament where he replaced Kiyoharu for a single dance because I don't want Tatara to break up with Chinatsu since they fit really well together.
>bring this up later when the manga progresses some more
Great. The author is already in shit health, I wonder how long we'll have to wait to talk about anything then.
You know what, who cares. This is just going to lead to shitposting and endless arguing, and I'd rather not.
>I wonder how long we'll have to wait to talk about anything then
Just be patient man, and besides, following a on-going monthly manga series is like that, you need to have patient. It's going to take forever for this manga to be completed at this rate, I just hope they don't axe it. England is still a pipe-dream for our MC right now.
