Don't screw up the OP.
Reminder that Mabel's bubble will be essentially Human Instrumentality.
Just noticed something interesting.
In Fight Fighters, when an image of Bill in on one of the arcade machines, his body is colored green rather than yellow. This is the first time an image of him appears in the show that isn't just an outline or black-and-white drawing and it ties in with what Alex once said about Bill's original design being green.
I'd recommend trying some new stuff and seeing what you enjoy. Keep in mind you would have have had longer to enjoy Gravity Falls if you'd given it a chance earlier.
Two shows you should really try if you haven't already are Twin Peaks and golden-age Simpsons, considering they were huge inspirations for GF and are both great in their own right.
100 PERCENT PURE BLOODED IRISH
Just cry yourself to sleep, its what I do.
>There will never be a show with a mystery element as good as GF
>there will never be a twin sibling duo as perfect as Dipper and Mabel
>the twin's birthday party will be the last happy moment they have in GF
My history was pretty much:
Dragon Ball, DBZ, Elfen Lied, Vampire Knight, Death Note
Dexter's Lab, PPG, Johnny Bravo, KND, EE'n'E, Foster's(,) and then a HUGE leap in quality with Gravity Falls.
SU is too progressive for me
>It's the Twins birthday party at nightfall
>Whole town celebrating with the Pines twins at the school the day before they leave
>Ford finds Stan to apologise to him.
>Stan says he forgives him, and takes him outside
>They go to the lake
>Stan unveils the new Stan of War.
>"Like old times, huh sixer?" he asks as he outstretches his hand to invite Ford
>Dipper and Mabel show up, revealing that they've been following them
>They say they aren't going to let them go unless they go to.
>"One last adventure."
>Stan chokes up as he invites them aboard.
>The four of them sail off into the night to a slowed version of the theme song.
Gravity Falls is pretty progressive already.
It pales in comparison to SU tho.
I find getting really baked helps make Steven Universe more enjoyable
You'll probably not mind the rampant I'm-a-lesbian-and-I'm-rubbing-it-in-your-face shit as much and may even just laugh at it
It was OK, but they should have done more with the Underdark tourist trap. Heck, that would have deserved it's own episode in other cartoons.
Mabel doesn't even get to buy a royally handsome dark-elf boy and have to choose between him and Waddles.
>We'll never get to see the 'Mabel has a black boyfriend' episode
Why even live tbph?
>Gravity Falls is ending
>Soos may possibly die protecting the Pines family
what are the fat chasers going to furiously fap to now now that the show is ending? "No I'm not saying the name of the show"?
So, uh... think Pacifica is going to appear one more time before the end?
Soos, Wendy or Stan to dying wouldn't really add anything to the story or conflict other than generic serious/edgy appeal so it probably won't happen.
The only character I can see possibly dying is Ford because it would impact the story by throwing a wrench into Dipper's plans of becoming his apprentice, and even then it seems unlikely.
Stan dying would allow for him to make up for his past mistakes while allowing Ford to take his identity back. If it was to save his family, I feel he'd be okay with sacrificing his life. This won't likely happen, of course,
It's just that it passed so soon anon.
I guess it's time for me to go back to obsess over anime and cry over the fact I am not japanese.
I want to believe it's a girl's name. My theory is that the parents thought they'll have two girls.
This is the last we'll ever see of it.
I work for Hirsch
>Stan tricks BIll into possessing him
>Actually has enough mental willpower to subdue bill
>Takes the hotrod Bill made last episode and rides it into the dimensional rip while [inarticulate yelling]
>Kids are sad
>Ford is even sadder
>Last titlecard is Stan's face with Bill's eyes.
I've been thinking. Is Gravity Falls the only cartoon this generation of animation that will die with dignity? Think about it.
Cartoon Network has been whoring all their shows off lately. Adventure Time and Regular Show may never end at the rate they are being renewed. New shows like Teen Titans Go and Steven Universe show 0 signs of stopping anytime soon.
On Nick Spongebob and Fairly Odd parents have been going on for 16 and 14 years respectively. Other than that no Nick show makes it past one or two seasons because they are so shit.
At Disney we have Gravity Falls ending, but what do they have left that's worth getting a season 3?
In addition, how is Disney XD going to stay afloat without the flagship known as Gravity Falls? Wander Over Yonder and Penn Zero don't seem to be catching on, maybe Star Vs or Pickle and Peanut have a SMALL chance of holding on. This is going to change everything about Disney XD. Disney will have to find some new marketing strategies to increase viewership at the network.
Gravity Falls is gonna leave a decent sized hole in this decade of animation. Nothing else is really as good as it is.
T-thanks for blocking it for me Disney.
So whats the next clue?
>Stan is selling his inventory because Ford is kicking him out
>Blendin gets Time Dad and Time Mom, as well as an army of aliens, to help fight Bill Cipher. The wheel characters all get giant mechs and punch Bill's minions back into the portal.
>tfw this may potentially fuck up like L O S T did when that ended
>There will never be an explanation about what happened to the time giants
>the show ended before all the cool stuff could be explored.
This is why I hate only having two seasons. There's so much that could have been looked into.
A season 3 would still have been better to explained the left out plot rather than a book.
But what do I know.
I swear to fucking god if that fucking tiny dick having Roiland sucking manlet wastes one second of the final episodes on that fat fucking retard Thompson I am going to punch him so hard at comicon his fucking skull will collapse like a week old post Halloween jack-o lantern. So sick of this shit. Ignore characters we care about and puke the ones we hate right up in our faces till the end you balding ugly little quitter.
No more ideas.
We're all going to grow up after the next episode anon.
Do people really hate on DvM? Sure, it's not in the Top 10 episodes but the minotaur w/ fists for nipples made it for me.
plus do people forget he used the jumping and fighting skills he learned from that episode to beat Gideon's ass?
I'd like a season 3, but I don't see anywhere left the story can go.
The show is called "Gravity Falls" for a reason- because its supposed to be about the town of Gravity Falls, the one town in all of America that has the highest concentration of anomalies.
It can't be called Gravity Falls anymore once Mabel and Dipper leave Gravity Falls and head back home to Piedmont, California. There can't be a bunch of mysteries in Piedmont- a bedroom community outside of Oakland.
I don't see much in the way that a season 3 can be made, Dipper and Mabel are supposed to be in high-school after this summer ends. Maybe they can do a time-skip to make Mabel and Dipper teenagers and return to Gravity Falls, or maybe it can take place in another town.
The I EAT KIDS balloon and the fact that the episode gave fat chasers someone new to fap to besides Soos, Thompson, Bud Gleeful and Free Pizza Guy almost compensated from Mabel starting to become the worst girl in the show (way before Dipper And Mabel Vs. The Future)
Not to mention pulling a Bill Cosby on two people because she's too fucking lazy to actual go out and do some real work matchmaking. Little sweater loving glitter using cunt.
>I EAT KIDS
This alone earned the episode a place forever in my heart.
Or she may pull a Rebellion on us.
>Mabel and Dipper become Ford's apprentices
>where and how did the wierdness originally leak from
>what planet was Ford going to be taken to in the Big Dipper system
>(instert any unexplained plothole here)
Theres plenty of material, theres just no will.
Or he just wants the book to sell well.
>No explanation for aliens
>no explanation for birthmark
>no explanation for the wheel characters
>no explanation for northwest tapestry
>no explanation for the time giants
You know, mysteries are supposed to resolve themselves in shows, not stay hidden because the creator got bored and decided to end the show prematurely.
The birthmark isn't some big cryptic thing. Hirsch said it was inspired by some IRL dude he knew with bad acne that at one point, lined up enough to resemble the constellation.
Granted, Dipper's is a birthmark and not acne, but that's where it came from.
Does anyone else ever feel like Ford and Dipper where basically pale imitations of Rick and Morty? The old amoral scientist prick with goofy awkward nerdy younger relative trope. Was this just another way Alex was already licking Justin Roiland's nut sack?
I thought these threads were gonna be comfy after the announcement but surorisingly everyone is even more bitter.
See you guys during the live talkback cause these threads are currently pretty fucking shitty.
It really is comforting to see Hirsch called on his bullshit for once rather then perpetually stroked off by adoring fans who are too young to see what a loser he really is. There was supposed to be three seasons,weirdmageddon being the closue for season three but as usual Alex the quitter Hirsch got bored and decided he didn't want to do this anymore like everything else in his life and just gave up and rushed through what was left of his show.
The wheel characters are most likely going to play a part here soon.
As the rest, I could personally live without them. It would be cool, but I don't mind if we never get explanations
Ferguson needs to remove that body paint.
What do we have o be happy about? We only got two seasons out of a show we love,the latter pat of season two was rushed and hackneyed because Hirsch just wants to go blow the R&M staff. That hour long finale better damn well be good at least. Fuck that dwarf.
>be glad that plot holes happened
I would be glad if non of them existed in the first place or they got explained in an extra season.
Is next episode the last time we'll see Pyronica?
Is now the time to draw/write "stuff" out of our system?
>Is now the time to draw/write "stuff" out of our system?

Any drawfriends out there? I want a picture of Nate,Lee and Robbie being gang raped by Bill's henchmen while Thompson is eaten alive in the background. Thanks guys,I love you lots!
She has an almost risque figure and her rabbit teeth look cute with her lips.
>needs to be continued.
How? Pyronica won. It's over.
They're not dead, but for some reason they aren't downloading. There's an error (JDownloader says "Resource temporarily not available.") and nothing happens while it waits to retry.

Why would he do this to us?

>he makes a killing with Journal #3 without doing anything
>never ending vacation
Its like he's Stan and not Dipper.
It was Legend of Korra that ended up being a waste of time and resources since Nick didn't put any care or caution into what the fuck they were doing
Normies barely know who he is, but he is a turbonerd who is somehow seen as a decent movie director.
He loves Hideo Kojima and wanted to work in video games for a long time, he made an original Western mecha movie (Pacific Rim) which is more of a weeb's wet dream than something a traditional director would bother with, he was supposed to make a movie about lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness" too, but he went away when they asked him to put a love interest in the movie, other stuff like this.
He's the kind of guy you'd find lurking around message boards, and yet he's a movie director.
I think his movies are fairly mediocre, yet are very nice in design and visuals.
>watch the final two episodes
>with my little sister
With your sister. You live once, and you were both born in the right time and place to witness a great tv show like this one.
Share this experience and a big bowl of popcorn with your sibling.
Depending on age, she might really identify with what Mabel's going through.
The threads will still be in https://boards.4chan.org/co/archive and you can read them later.
alex really is stan
and the scam was season 3
I'm a strange mix of all four of the Pines family - I have some traits of each of them (though not all are apparent at the same time). Needless to say, I'm not all that healthy emotionally.
Candy spinoff please.
Dipper Vs the Manliness was the very episode that got me into Gravity Falls.
For some reason my plane ride offered like 5 episodes, none were the 1st, so I had no idea the show at the time had a plot.
Here's a question: Would you have rather had a Season Two and Season Three, both of 20 episodes each, that more fully fleshed out their respective government/portal plotlines and the Ford/Bill plotlines, perhaps at the cost of having to deal with more filler episodes,
or would you have rather had what we got: a single Season Two that condensed both plotlines into two half-seasons and minimal filler and development?
This. I'd rather not have waited another two years for the story to have ended anyway. I like this show, but waiting since 2012 to finish a story that is ostensibly three months long is kind of a pain.
>final episode of Gravity Falls
>Dipper vs. Bill showdown
>Dipper stares Bill in the eye as the final blow is delivered
>Bill attempts a final attack by streaming his consciousness through Dipper
>Dipper survives the madness, but faints after Bill is defeated
>Two days later, Dipper wakes up
>Stan and Mabel are at his side
>Dipper says his first words:
>He walks to the bathroom and locks the door
>The sound of a mirror being broken is heard
That would be absolutely fucking scary since my sister shares alex's sister's name and my name is one in a million here in America
Hear your shows getting canceled. Sorry.
Surprising thought it was doing really well.
How is it bait I'm saying I'm sorry your show got canceled. I'm legitimately sorry this board seemed to have a lot of love for the show and it was out of the blue.
Its a sad occurrence.
Well guys. I'm sad the ride is nearing its end, but I'm glad we had the chance to experience it.
>Loud House, possibly
>implying Loud House will be good for anything besides porn
>implying that pedophiles buying an obsessive amount of merch isn't the only chance it has at not being cancelled after one season
Thanks /sug/. Glad to see us two boards can live in peace, shame it wasn't for long.
>[Insert Character of Interest Here]

[Scene Goes Blank]
let's be real here. if gravity falls was getting 3+ million viewers each episode like it used to then disney would've thrown enough money at alex to keep him just happy enough to be onboard for another season
And would that really have been a good thing?
Don't get me wrong: i think this show would work better as 3 seasons instead of 2. But only if planned that way from start to finish. If they just changed their minds about having 2 seasons and went for three too late in the second season, after some of the episode we've gotten had already been finished, there'd be some serious backtracking and stretching in season 3.
>really cute fanart of the twins from behind sitting stargazing?
I think this is what you're describing >>77620628 but I attached the other cute stargazing pic I have saved just to be safe.
>Based on what I've seen from Alex, personality-wise, I highly doubt this.
what do you mean by this
>And would that really have been a good thing?
imo there was a lot more material from the show than only 2 seasons worth. a lot of loose ends that haven't been tied, things that needed to be hashed out and such
they obviously wanted to promote their Disney XD channel by forcing viewers to subscribe. gravity falls still got around a million viewers per ep on average during season 3. the last couple episodes will probably get around 5-7 million viewers
I mean he seems like the type, you know? The whole artist integrity thing, like, slapping together another season just because disney threw enough money at him-- that's selling out. I really can't see Alex doing that.
And yes, there was more stuff they could've done, but the decision was made to finish it at season two back when they first started working on it. So disney getting another season out of him that wouldn't turn out to be slipshod would have to be at that point, because they made season two with the end in mind. The person you quoted already said this, actually. Not sure what wasn't clear about it.
>artist integrity thing
that's just a gimmick. we're talking about disney, not some kind of 'indie' cartoon studio. disney doesn't care about art it cares about ratings. and if you take a look at alex's farewell to gravity falls on tumblr he mentions how the budget that disney allowed for the show didn't seem like enough sometimes. even though he worded it differently, that's basically what he meant. and come to think of it, there were a lot of animation errors that just happened to be included in the final cut of each ep almost as if alex was trying to send a message to disney
and who knows? maybe the budget WAS too small. maybe disney was paying alex just scraps because he was basically a nobody before this. but would alex have worked for disney if he only cared about the art of storytelling? maybe. would he have made a third season if disney offered him more? maybe. if he cared about the artform then would he have strapped down and made a third season? maybe
And if anons are looking for similar but newer shtuff, I can vouch for Wayward Pines. That was a fun little ride.
but honestly who the fuck knows? i just know that this show deserved and quite possibly necessitated a third season. that's all. sorry for bursting your dreambubbles anons. i also apologize on behalf of alex and his team for letting the fans down like this
maybe it didn't reach their quota. maybe their standards were too high. maybe alex was asking for too much. maybe disney asked for too much. maybe alex didn't want to deal with them anymore. maybe the team developed creative differences. who the fuck knows broh
i wouldn't go that far but seirously. seriously who the fuck knows what goes on in that crazy brain of his. maybe this thing was all planned. maybe disney and alex will resurrect the series in the future. WHO KNOWS
And that would be?
Also, of course there's gonna be "loose ends" in a mystery show. Twin Peaks is a great example of this.
Because even the series is done, the mysteries are definitely not, that's what makes a mystery show still intriguing.
That's why Alex and his crew are grateful that their vision is fulfilled. As for the budget, I don't see it at all. The art is gorgeous and the animation, while not perfect, is fluid.
It's for the best that it ends with just two seasons because that's what the people behind this show wants.
What the hell is wrong with this guy? It's obviously planned from day one that it's a finite summer with an end in sight.
there is no way anyone, alex or disney, would up and admit that he was fired because that would damage his online persona and look unethical. not unless he did something utterly pants on head retarded (like that nigga from CN who groped a sjw) would they announce he was fired, getting drunk a few nights isnt going to cut it, though it may have contributed to the decision to cut ties.
all of us who were here from the first episode felt the tonality shift from alex (and by proxy manzi) in the second season. clearly, a large portion of the second season was rushed, and i think even parts of season 1 ended up being reduced to the shorts.
he wanted out, disney saw him as a liability, and they let his contract expire. if that was an NBA coach thats a firing.
I was Dipper as a kid. I kept binders full of Fortean print-outs and "weird" book club fact files, and a VHS library of paranormal TV specials. Plenty of trekking through the woods looking for weird creatures, too.
>And that would be?
i really don't think that i have to repeat the list of things that several people have already pointed out in almost every /gfg/ thread but...
the dinosaurs "unfreezing"
island head beast
and most of all, the aliens
the thing is, the show built itself up with all these subplots that's supposed to contribute to the overall plot and everybodys been expecting some type of closure to make the story arc more captivating. and none of us are being overcritical here because afterall the show sets itself apart because of its lore. and what good is its lore if they're not important to the overall plot.
>That's why Alex and his crew are grateful that their vision is fulfilled
but who the fuck knows what the real reason is. if you look at the show from beginning to end, you can't honestly tell me that this doesn't deserve a third season and also claim to be a fan at the same time. there's more than enough material to base new episodes on. if we're to imagine that each day = 1 episode in the gravity falls world then this summer only lasted about 40 days not counting the extra week before the twins' birthday. even if we didn't get that autistic. even if. also the budget, the budget has been an issue with alex throughout. yeah the art and animation is awesome but the budget matters throughout the production process.
but with all that said, gravity falls is still the best show i've seen on tv thus far which is why i'm criticizing it in the first place and if you liked the show as much then you'd be criticizing it too because without that sort of criticism shows can turn into shit and eventually the fandom does too and defends whatever crappy shit the shit show shits out and like i said about alex is doing the right thing. i'm still holding out for a series revival later on in the future though, when alex and disney are ready
>Disney: alright alex, the budget is thin and its coming down to you and daron nefcy. whoever can survive a ride on space mountain at disney world gets their show to stay alive
>alex angrily storms out of the room because he is too short to ride
Mysteries they don't want to answer
You're dense. It's subtle storytelling. The deal was Blendin breaking out of the Infinitentiary.
>the dinosaurs "unfreezing"
We already saw the pterodactyl. No need to expand on that.
>island head beast
Anomalies that have no need for expansion.
There's a subtle hint to his origin. Look for it.
>the thing is, the show built itself up with all these subplots that's supposed to contribute to the overall plot and everybodys been expecting some type of closure to make the story arc more captivating. and none of us are being overcritical here because afterall the show sets itself apart because of its lore. and what good is its lore if they're not important to the overall plot.
You're just nitpicking. You listen to this shit fucker.
It's for the best and the creator, his crew and even Disney knows it.
Slow down there, Manzi.
this is what i was talking about. you're so fucking brainwashed you'd defend alex even if he stained your neck with shit and your nickname became "shitneck" for the rest of your life. fuck off you stupid low-IQ fucktard

>If you want to leave some ambiguity on minor points, you want nothing explained at all
Firstly, half the points you mentioned were explained in the show, or obvious once you thought about it, or not plot points at all. Even then, minor ambiguity is good.
Are you honestly saying Blade Runner should have told us whether Deckard was a robot or not? Or Lost in Translation say what Bill Murray said? Or Total Recall say what was real or not? Or Inception say whether it was a dream or not?
Hint m8, use the power of your imagination. The main points are all explained, and minor points are left up to the viewer to fill in the gaps. If it hurts to use your imagination, and come up with cool fan-theories, I urge you to experiment, and not to "kill yourself" Jesus m8, calm down.
Or hell, maybe you could address the post, and explain why it would be better if we knew all these things, or alternatively, why GF has to explain all their minor plotpoints, and those movies don't.
No he's not
This is the umpteenth time someone brought up the supposed "loose ends" and this is the umpteenth time you shoved your IMDB-tier movies as your arguments
It's just getting old at this point, brah
They'll probably undergo some weird transformation once they hit 13. There body will grow noticeably taller and their head shape would get less round in a few seconds.

God damn it I have a ridiculously huge amount of
entirely sfwGravity Falls fanart. I don't recall one show/game/anything that I've saved more fan-art of. That's going to be another one.
Posting best promo art
I've figured for a while that the last code being: >They are never going to be a couple, you pervs!
is a real possibility.
What if Bill can only be defeated by
killing the person who's possessed by him?
I can't be too hard on Hirsch because Disney treated the show like shit. The lack of promotion, the move to XD and ratings collapse as a result, the way the whole things been ignored to promote garbage like that bloggin' dog. Yes, Hirsch is giving up like a pussy but Disney gave him no opportunity to not be a pussy. I should not have to glean episode info and dates from here and the creator's twitter. Fuck Disney.
>yfw GF has ending with a character parade like this where all the recurring characters appear and their names are revealed.
Dipper is last and his real name is revealed
this was fucking hype inducing. I've never seen such a serious promo piece of a kid's show.
>deceived look on Dipper's face
>Mabel heartbroken, distraught
>Stan in handcuffs, looking down
It's just so damn powerful.
No but the TV Movie is a part of the season, not it's own special event, it's still special, but it's still a season episode.
TV Movie Finales don't have to be a part of a season, look at Ed Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show, that series had no plot buildup for a monumental movie finale, but they still had one and it was good, and not "Season 6's last episode is a movie!"

Three seasons were never the plan.
>Originally I thought three. That may be too many though. Perhaps 2 and a movie. Im more interested in quality than quantity. But I suppose anything can happen
We're basically getting 2 Seasons and a Movie.
Okay, I'll take the bait. If you add the shorts then it's fully realized.
That's it then. 40 episode and 17 shorts indeed.
Made a 1080p wallpaper with the new promo art
Why are the characters without staying power the only 1s they do shorts with anymore? Stan just turns into a lame old Jewish father joke and Mcgrucket just became lame in general.
Three Seasons were never the plan.
>Originally I thought three. That may be too many though. Perhaps 2 and a movie. Im more interested in quality than quantity. But I suppose anything can happen
>2 and a movie
>Weirdmageddon is the movie
>but wait, what about the three (18,19,20) episodes?
>Count in the shorts
>2 Season and A Movie
BONUS: Journal 3
>Three seasons were never the plan.
>Originally I thought three.
Reread the quote you provided. He conceived Gravity Falls as a three season show. That's what "originally" means.
It's clear he changed his mind sometime between the first season ended and production began on season 2. His AMA was written before they started working on season two, which is why his answer was indeterminate at that point.
>So, in a sense, that was never his true plan.
No. It was his plan, until he changed his mind. He had a game plan, it turned out to be less than ideal, and so he reworked it.
Writers do that. They're allowed to.
You realize acknowledging he reevaluated his plans isn't an insult to him, right? It doesn't make him a bad artist or anything.
Alright, I understand, anon.
I guess it's because this general's pretty much crawling with /sug/fags now. It's not that Steven Universe is terrible, it's that its fans shit on our show.
Also, yes. 2 Seasons and a movie is for the better.
So you wanna count in the shorts? Fine, I'll bite.
Shorts are 2m 23s long average.
17 shorts * 2m 23s = 40m 31s
Average length of a Gravity Falls episode is 22m 16s.
17 shorts are equal to 1.82 regular episodes.
Weirdmageddon movie consists of three episodes (length of the movie does not matter; it is a movie and it takes away 3 episodes from Season 2) and shorts provide 1.82 episodes back.
This means we're short on approximately 1.18 episodes. Which is less than what we were promised.
Hah. What about Journal 3 then?
That's more than enough for the lore and information in an episode. It's pretty much an episode where we see the Journal 3 in full detail.
