>>1903628
Yup. People don't seem to know how to take twists and turns in a show. You know, when there's yuri in a het-show, nobody claims the show is now longer het. But a little "het" in yuri and people go ape-shit, and dishonestly dismiss everything else that was yuri. Funny how there was a thread sometime back, where folks were wanting more het/yuri mix, because it's more "realistic", and to prove that lesbians can get it on in a non-amazion world. Well, you got what you wished for. Where are those anons now?

And that bare sandman scene outrage is overkill. I took a look at it, and it's nothing really. A very common thing, and it has no weight to anything much.

The stuff with Akira might be worth talking about, but Akira amazingly has never looked more girly than ever. I liked jealous Mirei and loved how much Mirei just adores Mamori. They are end-game anyway.

So that's why Kasumi went zero-arms. It's because she sort of has a waifu already. (Pic related)

>>1903630
Not sure how you can forget Lady and Lady. They've been the tightest yuri couple so far.

Did you get your info from /a/? Because in the official bio it's more or less highly indicated that Meifon and Torino have zero blood relation to each other.
>>
>>1903704
>Not sure how you can forget Lady and Lady. They've been the tightest yuri couple so far.

I think it's more than obvious for anyone who's following the show I just mentioned the ones that are 'less known'
>>
>>1903704
How exactly is this what people were asking? This isn't a generic series with a het main couple with a lesbian couple tacked in the background. This is series with a really convinient reason to only have girls in one place devoid of men. There's no fucking mix anywhere unless the Gov is actually a man.
>>
>>1903717
think they were talking about Akira.
>>
It's nice that Mirei broke free from the faceless men illusion of her own willpower, but it was still an uncomfortable scene to get through.
I'm more annoyed that the episode ended with Mamori still crushing on Akira. I know that it's just setup to lead to some big moment where she realizes that Mirei is her real prince, but I was hoping it wouldn't take longer than one episode. Now I feel that it might stick for a long time, and all this does is rob us of opportunities for more cute MireMamo scenes.

So I'm not devastated or anything, but it was a disappointing episode. Hopefully this will end up being the worst the series ever gets.
>>
>>1903725
MRA detected. Also, wanting a yuri show without any guys = misandry. Whoa, that's some tumblr-like logic there. And I never see any misandry on 4chan, only misogyny, so what do you mean they think they are welcome anywhere?

>You know, when there's yuri in a het-show, nobody claims the show is now longer het. But a little "het" in yuri and people go ape-shit.

Maybe because people who watch yuri are not expecting any "het" involving the main characters? Even if there's yuri in het shows it usually the side characters. That's a bad comparison imo.

>A very common thing
Common in doujin, you mean.
I do think some people overreact a bit and for sure there's trolling involved by /a/nons as well.
>>
>>1903818
this is b/a/it
>>
>>1903815
This is getting really inconsistent. We were under the assumption that Ecstas must be activated by Liberators, but the illusion girl was expecting Mamori to transform just by masturbating. If that's possible, then what's the point of Liberators even existing?
>>
>>1903803
This episode got lots of great animated part like that Lady Lady action scenes though.

Take a breather anon. I was pissed to by that shitty part. After calming myself and rewatching it, I find this episode quite good actually.

Shitty part is shitty. Nothing can be done, but there are lots of good parts too. Like Charlotte being terrible and Mirei being cute.
>>
>>1903821
Maybe because Mamori thought she was getting fingered by Akira, who is a Liberator?
>>
>>1903821
I thought anyone could activate an Ecsta, but the best effects will be accomplished with her Liberator.
>>
>>1903694
>>1903706
Although aside from Mamori, its usually the background characters drooling over Akira while the prominent characters are just whatever about it.
>>
>>1903827
Liberator has to be physically present to channel power, not the Exster imagining an invisible liberator is there.
>>
>>1903821
>but the illusion girl was expecting Mamori to transform just by masturbating

Maybe something really bad happens if she tries. That is why she was saved in the last second.

Isn't the illusion girl a liberator? maybe she's planning on using the sword but got blocked by Mirei?

>Nothing can be done

Well, something can be done which is cancel my merchandise orders and drop the show until it's finished and then re-evaluate it once it is finished. Which is what I'm going to do. If they don't fuck up the rest of the show, then that's good but I'm not going to gamble money on it.

Where can I watch the uncensored version? I didn't care about it until now, but this episode has relevant characters.
>>
>>1903855
That's not gonna erase that part man.
>>
>>1903846
My point is that if an Ecsta can transform just by achieving orgasm, regardless of how she got there or having a partner or not, then there's no need for Liberators. It could be anyone wielding the Ecsta as a weapon. It could be a trained soldier, which would be obviously more effective than some little girl if they want to use them in war.

I'm just starting to feel like the writers didn't really think this through.
>>
>>1903850
That's so romantic.

Regardless of whether you could look past the scene or not, can we at least admit that this anon...

>I dunno, maybe they are trying to show men in a not positive light (as in not needed for approval)?

>-Mamori's parents, including her father, don't accept her 'disease'
>-Akira adopts a male persona to form a cult of personality to lure in lonely confused young girls. Which might explain Lady's line about her being a hypocrite.
>-They aren't above using forced hallucinations to enact faceless men molestation. They could have easily used faceless ghost girls but decided to go with men.

>Of course I probably am thinking about a ecchi show too deeply, but I dunno. If they are trying to show that being straight is preferable, they have a weird way of doing it.

...is trying way too hard by actually implying this show is making some serious point about homosexuality or men being problematic shitlords or whatever? Despite this being a show from the Senran Kagura people aimed primarily at male otaku?

PS. yes I fucking know girls watch fanservice shows with yuri in them too and that stuff like Queen's Blade is advertised in Yuri Hime. But they're still a periphery demographic and it's blatantly obvious male otaku are the target for stuff like this.
>>
>>1903864
Couldn't be anyone I guess since the Trainer in ep02 failed to activate Mamori so I guess trained soldiers or maybe someone need to be higher level to be able to wield any Ecsta.
>>
>>1903864
Maybe any Liberator can hold any Ecsta, but only Liberators can do it, not any normal people. Rain was wielded by Mirei, even though they are not partners.
>>
>>1903861
It doesn't need to erase it as long as it's a one off but I'm not going to hold my breath for that.

>>
>>1903871
Obviously the show's liberator and Exstar thingamy has been a bit shot. However, as a basis, it seems that an Exstar must be fond of a Liberator for drive to happen. If a Liberator wants to brute-force her way, then she has to a of a higher level than the female Exstar, or else get rejected, like Nukui in episode 2.

Mamori seems to quite a high-level Exstar. Rayne was fond of Mirei, so it wouldn't matter if Mirei was more powerful than her or not.

The way she looks at her in every ep. I wish we saw her carrying her home and tucking her in. Fanart never after the faceless sandmen.
>>
>>1903938
It wasn't a dick, it was a tongue. You can quite clearly see a head at the bottom of the screen. And genital stimulation is genital stimulation, especially when it's implied that her power includes making you feel things you don't want to, like potentially arousal. What's even worse than being raped other than deriving pleasure from it?

Having thought about it, the whole thing while certainly very uncomfortable to watch didn't killed any yuri on the show. If anything, it only cemented Mirei's position as full-blown lesbian and in love with Mamori.

However, I still more upset at Mamori's characterization since it makes the scene on the previous episode shallow and Mamori herself a pretty one dimensional character.
>>
>>1903960
I thought Ange rope thingy is already a substitute for the tentacles.

Something like this.
I think she already has picked her arm, but it not willing to touch her.
She seems too young.
>>
>>1903962
I'm just impressed that Mirei would bite her own tongue for it.
>>
>>1903962
I agree that it ended up being resolved in a good way. Mirei is still badass with a special place in her heart for Mamori, and LadyLady were amazing.

I think the Mamori thing is going to be explained as part of Akira's evil powers.

It was also intended to be kind of bittersweet, I think, since Mirei was shown multiple times to be relieved that Mamori was finally a little happy. Besides, there needs to be a buildup before true love blooms between them. I like that it's not taken for granted that they're going to be together, and they may both have to work for it.
>>
>>1903939
Yeah, I was hoping that she'd be a bit more jealous. Instead it's being played as an "I'm happy if she's happy" thing, which is sweet I guess, but a bit on the platonic side.

I mean we're definitely going to see that kid cum at some point.
>>
>>1903968
Yeah, still the thing that dissapointed me the most was the fact is obvious that relationship is totally one sided. Expected but still no less sad.

The biggest problem to come from this is that the VD threads on /a/ are gonna be horrible from now on
>>
>>1903976
Maybe if it was Charlotte, I get that but Kasumi doesn't seem evil or mean to me.
>>
>>1903973
>>1903978
This makes me think that Mamori is going to end up doing some mamori-ing of her own, to Mirei. Imagine, Mirei finally showing weakness and maybe crying at night, and it's Mirei who gets out of bed to go over and hold her tight.
>>
>>1903977
If I had to bet, she's the governor's sister.
Same hair color, living in the palace and it makes sense that Kasumi is there too.
>>
>>1903969
Her feelings are still developing and wasn't full blown love yet. She's also was a soldier and seems a bit autistic I don't think she knows much about being jealous and stuff.
>>
>>1903979
She's still grooming her.

Anyway, the only villain here is Charlotte being a cunt. Most of them are more worried in trying to find a way to get off the island but, If, I had to bet, id say they told them lies to keep them entertained with the belief that they were getting out of the place soon. Except they won't.

Ever.

Giant girl, little hear.

So people really didn't expect some kind of het rape scenario after seeing first episode and knowing about the history of people behind this show?

It's a fetish anime with main yuri theme, not a yuri anime, and till the end all other ecchi/hentai fetishes will be put in it, for that purpose the show was created, making it yuri adds just more girls to be ecchi around.
>>
>>1903965
what does that has anything to do with her virginity?
>>
>>1903978
They still haven't known each other for very long, and Mamori never questioned her sexuality before. It's perfectly understandable that it would take her a while to come to terms with everything.

You're completely right about the /a/ threads. They had been quite pleasant for a while, now they're going to be full of trolls.
>>
>>1903986
I like the fact that Charlotte is a cunt, it's amusing. About leaving the island, this show doesn't make me root for the characters to be able to leave the island quickly, since it doesn't seem an horrible place and all the ecchi makes it hard to take angst and drama seriously.

>>1903988
I trust that pantyhose and ass though she probably fuck your shit up if you mess with her loli.
>>
>>1903968
>I think the Mamori thing is going to be explained as part of Akira's evil powers.
This sounds possible. I mean, LadyLady and other characters aren't interested in Akira because they know her bullshit.

The other girls and Mamori don't, so they think Akira is an idol of sorts.
Then the curtain falls. Oh my.
>>
>>1903993
Meanwhile these threads are considerably more civil than I expected. Thank god.
>>
>>1903994

The governor seems to have some relations with the milf that runs the other place, so I'm guessing this is just one big social experiment from the Governor's part in trying to keep things calm and keep an eye from crazed maniac like Charlotte.
Best course of action for an utopia so far, everybody may not like how things are ran here so, we must given them a choice albeit a fake one, to at least make everybody happy in a sense.

THIS ISN'T WHAT I SIGNED UP FOR

>>1903997
That´s good.
From a purely narrative perspective the sand men scene is okay.
The bad guy tried to mess with the hero´s head by making her imagine something unpleasant but being a trained soldier, Mire wasn´t affected at all and broke free. It didn´t even last more than 30 seconds and no harm was done.
I was a little surprised but that was it.
I guess /a/ wants any excuse to say "/u/ BTFO" and just clings to that.

I fully expected fetishes, I even enjoyed a few of the tamer ones so far, but I didn't think the creators would sit at the writing table and say "You know what this all-female island anime needs? Fetishized male gangrape."

People like Kasumi and Charlotte are enough to scare people off. (Even though Kasumi has a secret lover) that Lady knows...

Kasumi likes Hibiki. It's her arm. But Kasumi's love for her is so great that she doesn't want to bring her into the fights nor try anything lewd with her.
It's definatly, a very platonic sort of relation. To the point where sexuality comes in second.

If I had to point the finger, Kasumi would be, without doubt, one of the few women that actually indulged in a "homosexual" relationship with another female, regardless of that whole liberator arm thing.

Second being lady and Lady J, the wonder duo. AKA the wondrous Bike Dyke.

I think there's an implication that she was raped before, but I'm hoping she just means way is hell. ;_; She just wants senpai to notice her.

This was explained already. It's supposed to be illusionary hell, not nirvana.

Truly this episode killed the series
>>
>>1904073
This is written by men who view lesbians as a fetish, they probably didn't believe that scene could be viewed as grimdark if it was all women. The world isn't much better, but Japan still has some messed up views on gender roles.

Male or not, Mamori crushing on Akira really got annoying after a point.
The sandmen scene wasn't as bad as this bait makes it seem, and I do admit it was somewhat hot, but Mamori just went beyond annoying in this episode.
>>
>>1904095
Even if she was raped, it isn't too bad if in the end she gets her girl.
>>
>>1904049
>but I didn't think the creators would sit at the writing table and say "You know what this all-female island anime needs? Fetishized male gangrape."

It's not like it has no precedent. Queen's Blade has a lot of moments where the director just put on some gratuitous cumshots (like tree vines that for some reason are actually yogurt-spitting tentacles)
>>
>>1904096
I agree. The crush is a bit too heavy. I get that it is more an idealistic idol worshipping but if she keeps it up like that it is going to be annoying.
>>
>>1904093
Says some nimrod on a board exclusively for posting cartoon lesbian porn. We're not exactly the paragons of gender relations here.
>>
>>1904096
Her reaction is going to be really funny when she realizes her idol is actually a woman.
>I-I'm really gay? ;_;
>>
>>1904101
I just hope it wont take 8 episodes for that.
>>
>>1904093
This show creators are the same with Senran Kagura's right? Considering how great the characters writing in Senran Kagura is made me feel positive about future development.
>>
Not enough cute Mirei in this thread.
>>
>>1904099
>>1904101
It's not the idol worshipping, it's how quickly "he" replaced Mirei as Mamori's "knight in shining armor"

It reduces the effect of Mirei and Mamori's relationship, I think, and doesn't do good to Mamori's character if she thinks Mirei can be so easily replaced.
>>
>>1904079
why do people automatically think she's been raped before? she just said that she already seen hell and we've seen the flashback with the war, its literally could be anything.
>>
>>1904096
>>1904099
This is what made the episode frustrating to me, not the meaningless illusion scene. It's really annoying that Mamori wasn't conflicted at all, like she doesn't even remember that she saw Mirei as her prince just the day before. Even just before the fight started in the previous episode, they had what seemed like an important moment when Mamori expressed worry and called Mirei without a honorific for the first time, but apparently neither of them even noticed it.

I really hope they end crush soon, but I imagine it's going to be stretched for a while in order to compound with Momoka's appearance and generate drama between our leads.
>>
>>1904096
That masturbation scene was so fucking hot though. And then the sandmen was like having a bucket of cold water thrown over me.
>>
>>1904108
It was clumsily done, but it's pretty clear this is just a set up for Mamori's illusions to be shattered, making her realize how important Mirei is
>>
>>1904110
It feels like the episodes are in the wrong oder. She should see Mirei as her prince after this crush phase.
>>
>>1904108
She's a teenager, and she knew Mirei for what, 2 or 3 days before meeting Governor? It's only a set-up for Mamo/Merei relationship.
>>
>>1904111
>>1903936
>>
>>1904109

>>
Rain's hair is great.
>>
>>1904110
I don't mind it so much, it seems clear to me that she's trying to repress everything that's happened since she arrived at the island and cling on to the few normal things that she can.
>>
Meifon is cute too.
>>
>>1904124
>yfw meifon is a good goy disguising as jew
>>
>>1904112
Yup this. From the beginning she is literally looking for the cliche knight in shining armor to whisk her off her feet. Akira just happens to fit that description.

You can bet money in the bank that a later episode will have the standard 'she isn't the real knight YOU are'.
>>
>>1904124
If Charlotte gets her hands on her, She'll gonna tear her a new one.
>>
>>1904123
I think so too. So far the main motivation for most of them seems to be about going back to their family and their old life. Kasumi just wanted to have peaceful life without violence and to send Hibiki back to her family. Mamori is just a teenager that wanted to meet her parents again.
>>
>>1904130
Charlotte didn't know her though. Only Akira saw her.
>>
Why IS Charlotte so obssesed with Mirei anyway?
I'm sensing some tensed sexual tension
>>
>>1904133
Charlotte knew about her since the first episode. Remember how she shredded the door when she suspected Meifon was behind it?
>>
>>1904134
She is just pissed that Mirei did not join her harem.
>>
>>1904134
She's the reason of Charlotte's jobbing. Gotta protect the image and put them into submission.
>>
>>1904135
I don't think she knows Meifon's face.
>>
>>1904138
If she didn't, then Meifon wouldn't have needed a disguise.
>>
>>1904136
She's bossy.
What she really wants is to Mirei go around and bend the knee for her.
She's a dom type of gal and Mirei kinda fits her type. If you cut Mirei's hair and dressed her like a Prince, she would look like a handsome man, a handsome man Charlotte would like to roleplay at.
Not that I have weird thoughts about crossdressing women. That would be weird.
>>
poor Mirei she have now a stupid akira fangirl....

Because we live in a country that's been stable for so long, we have multiple generations who do not know what true strife is. The worst thing in their lives is bad and/or unwanted sex. They cannot comprehend anything worse, and refuse to look around themselves to see it.

People who've experienced war or worse tend to assume war or worse because assuming rape would seem silly by comparison.
>>
>>1904141
Meifon would need the disguise regardless of that. She has a betting pool to run.

Mirei unexpectedly drop out of nowhere into the island and already against her from the beginning. She possibly sees her as potential threat that could disrupt the system.
>>
>>1904143

The fuck are you talking about? If that is her type then she would be drooling over Akira.

I feel ya my brother in arms.
A day doesn't pass where my grandad still have war flashbacks, the floating bodies in the forest, the traps, the tortures. The smell of napalm.
Eight minutes to live. Eating bugs to kill hunger. Hiding under a pile of bodies and staying shut even when they stab a knife up your arm to see if you're dead.
War, war is hell.
>>
>>1904143
I hope Mirei kept her long hair even after 'serious character development'.
>>
>>1904150
She's drooling over Akira.
However, I don't think even Charlotte is that stupid to know that he is a she.
>>
>>1904145
I think its weird how that really wanted it to be rape instead of something else.
sounds like they're /a/nons
>>
>>1904109

It probably has to do with the rape imagery invoked seconds before she says that thing.

Next week's episode is going to be as bad or worse than this one. The next episode is obviously going to cover Mirei's past and now that we know they're entirely fine with showing hetero gang rape, the flashback scene from episode 2 where Mirei sees how old partner surrounded by faceless men is a huge fucking clue about where this show is going.
>>
>>1904198
The writers need to learn about "Show, don't tell."

Don't tell me about how awesome Lady J and Rain's bond is just show them having hot sex already. I think I'll be able to figure out how close they are just fine after such a scene.

Honestly though it feels like the staff is just finding ways to work around showing Lady Lady getting physical.

Some people on this board are obsessed with rape. Sure rape might happen in real life Army, but VD is an anime, not real life, it doesn't need to be 100% realistic. We got women with 10 kg of tits and some crazy technology, why does the Army need to be exactly as real life?

And by hell, Mirei probably meant the war.
>>
Watched the episode, not surprised this thread hit 300 replies so fast

But it was honestly nothing. Never liked Mamori in the first place, but she clearly is still in the naive Prince Charming on a White Horse phase in her life. Her sexuality is a moot point, that's just her character.

In the end it was Mirei who saved the day and that's what matters.

Also Ange is the best Supporting Character.

Sweet. That increases my hopes for an AnR 2nd season, except the part that says "the manga reaches the exact point where it has enough content to fill another anime season". Unless there are secretly more stuff after Haru and Tokaku graduate , the manga is wholly covered by the anime, there ain't anything else to animate.
>>
>>1904250
She's super cute.
>>
Overall, the episode wasn't that bad (the animation in particular was pretty great), but it makes me worried about the rest of the series. Despite Lady Lady, Charlotte, and Kasumi; the obsession over Akira really kills the yuri vibe of the show, especially with how Mamori and Torino act. The sand-men scene was a poor writing decision, imo; I know the show is trashy, but it lost a lot of dignity with that scene.

I hope the latter half of this episode was just a weak point in the series and it'll go back to being yurilicious soon.

Anon, she's a girl.

She's still part of the flagship couple, so its pretty annoying they felt the need to hetify both of them on some level.

I can get behind the fact that some people might not like the Imaginary Sandmen scene, I didn't particularly mind it, but I can at least understand that why some people be upset by it

This. Gross. Unless they're planning on adding more het later on, they didn't need to add that much detail. And if they are planning on adding het, well, that is a shit idea.
>>
>>1904289
>Also go figure charlotte is 100% lesbo given shes the bad guy.

Oh no, they're casting the gay character as the bad guy! This is tumblr-tier way of thinking.

Also is Mirei not 100% lesbian now because an opponent tried to mindrape her with some faceless, featureless husks?
>>
>>1904299
If anything. I'd say Mirei's confirmed lesbian now
>>
Am I deluding myself in thinking Akira is still a woman despite everyone referring to 'him' as a male? If he's male then he's male, that's that, but I still get that feeling he's pretending to be male. That or he used to be a female. From what I understand only females can catch the disease. It just seems odd there is only one male with the disease compared to all the females.

Regardless, Mamori's obsession with him will only be temporary. Mirei will get her back...where she will then be stuck between her ex and Mamori and it'll be Mamori's job to win her back.
>>
>>1904301
She is, but that was never the problem. It's the fact that they felt the need to include that scene in the show at all and will probably include more of it in future episodes. I don't want to watch that.
>>
>>1904307
When Akira sneaks up on Meifon she's still confused by Meifon's disguise so it's pretty easy to understand why everyone else is fooled by Akira's disguise.
>>
>>1904308
Honestly, I'd feel more upset if is nver referenced again. As it stands now, is obvious they're setting something up about Mirei's past.
>>
>>1903685
>more rape type stuff then i'll be done.
>>
>>1904290
I think crack-kun popped up at some point to complain about the CA girls.
>>
>>1904311
They can reference it if it's relevant via dialog/character interactions, just don't fucking show it. I don't need or want to see it.
>>
>>1904308
You dont want to watch something that you already know happened and you dont want to see it, because there was nothing you could do to stop it.
>>
>>1904307
Akira's design and voice scream female crossdresser, this is obvious not just to us, but to everyone. In the nicovideo comments some of the japs call him Zuka, after the Takarazuka actresses that play male roles in plays.

If he turns out to really be just an effeminate man, that's going to be the biggest surprise of the year. I really doubt they'd do it though.
>>
>>1904322
>I really doubt they'd do it though.
I dont think anyone thought they would show mirei of all people getting dominated by men, but there it is.
>>
>>1904322
He could be a man and still be a woman if he suffers from a rare genetic condition such as the xx male syndrome. But that would be impossible because it would still mean, even though he started ad a boy, his body physically altered itself into a she, including uterus and vagina.
>>
>>1904326
That would be infinitely more thought than they actually put into this show.
>>
>>1904325
She wasn't really though, since she snapped out of it.
>>
Do fags still not understand how god awful this garbage is? This series is fucking cancerous shit.
>>
>>1904336
Ok.
>>
>>1904336
Do you think if you cry hard enough someone will tell you it's okay? Maybe pat you on the head?
>>
>>1904327
I know. And i doubt it. Besides, xx male syndrome is very, very rare. We have less than five recorded medical cases since medicine started studying it.
It isnt something you can see at birth either, the child is born fine, like a male but when puberty hits, the female gender activates and blood samples reveal its true gender. Not even Y chromossome is present and the so called scrotum, is empty and cutting open reveals the vagina.

I never thought this shit was possible until i studied it in college.

>>1904341
If it serves for consolation. Kasumi may be very well be the only one so far that is actually conflicted about her sexually snd expreses worry and homoerotic tendencies for her extasis.
Hitomi, a little red head girl that sleeps in the castle is the main source of Kasumi afectionate behaviour. She is emotionally conected and linked to the girl on a romantic level.
I do not need to say anything else other than Kasumi being in love. The girls sight is enough is enough to soften her heart.
>>
>>1904351
>a yuri fan
I feel like this part is a lie.
>>
>tfw if they had just cut that scene the series could still be saved

Thats all they had to do. Cut the scene.
>>
Kasumi lolicon??? ep 04 confirme that? so cute
>>
>>1904350
Keep in mind that Kasumi is one of the few, al8ng with Mirei that fight like pros, knees to the face, dirty tactics and even punches. They are siick and ruthless and have no probs in bleeding to fuck someone up. And yet, she softens like a kitten on a gir we barely know about other than being similar to the governor. Could she be his litle sister.?
>>
>>1904352
Well it's not. Do yuri fans these days immediately like anything with lesbians in it? It doesn't work that way for me.
>>
>>1904355
She is harmless. Ironic since she is named zero arm because she refuses to touch her extasis.
Lady said Hibiki is her extasis and Kasumi lashed on her.
>>
>>1904359
No, but I would assume even if you weren't interested in this show you still wouldn't be pleased that it had sudden het in it, especially when other yuri fans are enjoying it. At best it's mean spirited.
>>
Does no one remember that Kasumi's exter (Hibiki) is apparently running away from reality?
>>
>>1904346
Your loss dipshit. Nice to see that some of /u/ blame the victim for being raped.

What I truly do not understand is how so many people got legitimately mad about something that is so easy to anticipate as some het on a male otaku-targeted premise. It's a fanservice show, it will contain fanservice aimed at straight male viewers. Sure it's shit taste, but plot wise, if it was just an illusion that Mirei quickly rejected, I see no need to get worked over it.
>>

I just noticed they're holding hands with both hands and holding the sword together ignoring the fact that Mamori is apparently holding herself I just want my cute lesbians back next week /u/
>>
>>1904389
cute lesbians are all I ever wanted
why did it have to be like this
>>
>>1904389
The opening of the show and all the official promotional art we got are full of adorable images where they're holding hands or staring at each other lovingly, or both. They set up this really romantic atmosphere around these characters, and their interactions in the first three episodes felt consistent with this expectation, specially episode 2. That's why this episode ended up being so shocking.
>>
>>1904398
And then /a/ are saying we were delusional for seeing any romance in the show. I'm actually on board with Mamori's crush on Akira - I think Mirei's reactions are cute and funny, and that masturbation scene was hot af. Faceless rape golems was unexpected.
>>
>huh what's this
>watch the opening
....so, it's like Soul Eater but gayer? I'd be okay with that.
>>
>>1904370
Isn't about virgin-chan falling for the only male (possibly) on the island?
>>
>>1904408
It's Souls Eater with good animation
>>
>>1904398
Exactly. If they had set up promo material indicating that this would be a show with generic het rape garbage, I wouldn't be mad because I just wouldn't have watched in the first place.

It's 100% bait and switch.
>>
>>1904415
>100%
I think that's overreacting just a tad.
>>
>>1904289
I don't think that scene hetfied her, but I certainly do not appreciate my lesbians doing anything romantic or sexual with males, wether they are real or not.
>>
>>1904289
>>1904420
I don't think it's really 'hetifying'. Mamori has still been doing the "but we're both girls" thing until now and Mirei was literally being tortured - if anything it's proof of her gayness. But I can understand your aversion to the scene.
>>
>>1904423
What gets me mad is that they made her a lesbo but then decided it would be hot if she was molested by a bunch of disgusting men. I don't mind het or bi.
>>
>>1904424
Nobody decided it would be hot, it was a nightmare, it's supposed to be disgusting.
>>
>>1904427
It's supposed to be disgusting in-universe, but the writer/director put it in the show because they thought it would be hot.
>>
>>1904429
There's no accounting for taste.
>>
>>1904427
I think it was supposed to torture the character but please the viewer by showing some sexual acts. Unlike purityfags, I don't mind lesbians with past relationships with men or bi, I just don't like that they put this thing up and decided to show it.
>>
>>1904434
>but please the viewer
That's just what you think, it isn't necessarily the case.
>>
>>1904436
Why would they animate and add a sexual scene in a show that's about sexually arousing the viewer if they didn't think it would sexually arouse the viewer and would instead make them sick?

It's incredibly poor judgement, but they obviously did it because they thought people would like it.
>>
>Alright, everybody into battle formation, start fucking!
>>
>>1904436
Nah, I'm not sure why they'd put something that they thought would make viewers sick intentionally when this is supposed to be a sexual escapism for all the otakus. For the purpose of this anime, there are some speculations to say that it is meant to please the viewer and not the other way round.
>>
>>1904441
>>1904443
Because the scene was supposed to make Mirei sick. People can appreciate when a scene accomplishes what it was intended to do, even if it isn't pleasant.
>>
>>1904442
This is kind of what I expected from Kentai and SW.
>>
>>1904443
Its obvious the anime is targeted at people who just want lewd and not actually the '/u/' audience
>>
>>1904445
But they could have accomplished that goal of "Mirei gets forced into a terrifying nightmare so she can break out to demonstrate her force of will" in a ton of other ways.

I guarantee you when they were coming up with that scene the conversation went "how can we work in a scene where Mirei gets raped by a bunch of men" and then coming up with the idea of induced nightmares, not the other way around.
>>
>>1904451
>I guarantee you when they were coming up with that scene the conversation went "how can we work in a scene where Mirei gets raped by a bunch of men"

I guarantee you that no such thought process was involved and it was simply "hey let's do that"

And that's perfectly fine. Nobody but a bunch of tumblr kids are getting mad over a scene with some mannequin look alikes anyway.
>>
>>1904441
Apparently the Nips liked it.
>>
>>1904456

You have some statistics on how many nips liked it and how many didn't?
>>
>>1904456
Like most anons they are pulling it out of their ass.
>>
>>1904459
>>1904460
When someone on the /a/ thread said twitter was having a meltdown numerous people went and checked it said, uh, no, they weren't, they thought it was lewd and funny. I'm inclined to believe them.
>>
>>1904462
When I was looking there were people talking about other parts of the episode, one guy who was spamming tweets angrily and one guy who just said that that scene was not okay.
>>
>>1904464
I'm gonna figure opinion is divided there as it is here then.

You know, even otakus hate characters that fall for the first hot male that they see.
So really, no one wanted that.
Congratulations on killing your protagonist, director.

>>

Not arguing that, but this episode really made me like Mamori less. She's kinda stupid and annoying.
So either she needs to do something to make her better in the future, or we need better characters to care about.

Anyone else anticipating Momoka's arrival? Will she steal Mirei's attention and make Mamori jealous, or make her angst and Mamori will have to comfort her?
>>
>>1904510
you know what I can't wait for momoka come, ,

Mamori with her shitty feeling for shit Akira and Mirei with her ex girlfriend
>>
>>1904510
Probably more like the former, because her description says she likes to tease pure-hearted people. I think she'll join the good girl team and be capable on her own, while undermining the Mirei-Mamori status quo in a playful way. If I'm getting everything I wish, she'll find a cute new girlfriend from among the remaining uncoupled girls. Maybe Mei Fong?
>>
>>1904511
I agree with you!!
>>
>>1904391
Because /u/ can never have nice things
>>
>>1904479

>>
>>1904510
>>1904511
I was dreading Momoka's arrival before because I didn't want anything to disturb Mamori and Mirei's relationship, but I guess that ship has sailed. Now I want something, anything to happen that will take the focus off Mamori's shitty crush.
>>
Just watched it, people are overreacting as usual. Even if Akira wasn''t 100% certain to be a woman in disguise, there's no way Mamori is ending the show like this. It's just part of her development. As for the "Faceless Male" attack, it was nasty, no doubt - and meant to be so. Mirei conquering it is a statement on her resolve.

Meanwhile, Lady Lady are still twin atom bombs of lesbianism and awesomeness, Charlotte is still covered in bitches and loving it, and Kasumi is revealed to have a girlfriend as well. People need to calm the fuck down.
>>
>>1904633
Good thing we're actually quite chill here.
>>
>>1904633
The point is that Mamori became an annoying and shallow character. It will be hard to care about her now.

Just see a hot "male", and suddenly she forgets about everything, even her family? That she was crying for the day before.
Mirei was not good, but a "male" she doesn't even talk with just save her somehow.
Right...

That's kinda like if Hibari had started to crush on Miyabi suddenly and just stopped care about Yagyuu. That would make her a shit character.
>>
>>1904484
>we need better characters to care about
Basically LadyLady.
>>
>>1904654
They are cool and I never expected they would be the best characters in this...
I still wanted some cute couples, though.
Kasumi and her partner have potential.

Well, at least I know I'm cheering for Charlotte next episode, now.
And that's the problem when you start disliking the protagonists in something.
>>
>>1904658
I don't dislike Mirei. I hated the scene, but I still like her autistic ass.

TO-KO-NO-ME is annoying me.
>>
>>
>>
>>1904661
If we didn't like Mirei I don't think the scene would piss us off so much.
>>
>>

>>1904664
Nah Mamori, this doesn't work anymore.

Flimsy little slut.
>>
>>1904653
>not watching the series for AAA supporting cast
>>
>>1904661
Why the hell would you stop liking her because of that scene?
My problem with Mirei is that she has almost no personality at all. Don't dislike her, though.
>>
>/u/ discussing 'that scene' in a civil manner
>/a/ sperging out screaming HETSHIT everywhere
>>
>>1904670
Yep, dat Ootsubo Rumi this episode.
>>
>>1904670
I want to hear J seducing Rain in Isuke's voice.
>>
>>1904653
She's a 16 year old girl who always dreamt of being saved by a 'prince'. Then she's suddenly thrown into an unknown situation and her life into chaos, so of course she's going to latch onto something that resembles her dream. Its could be her way of coping with the situation, her escape from reality. And the whole hurt that she's obsessing over a 'male' - its not really surprising. It's not uncommon for people not to know their sexual orientation at that age, especially as dating the opposite sex is considered the norm.

This will be a development period for her character. If Mamori had just fallen for Mirei then that would have been shallow. Their relationship needs opposition and challenges to fully grow.
>>
Mamori has all the right to fall for Akira.
She barely knows Mirei since she is so autistic she can't talk for more than a minute and they have been together for a few days.
Also, even Mirei still actively remembers Momoka.
That doesn't mean Mirei and Mamori won't develop a relationship in future episodes though.
>>
>>1904690
Not to mention that as much as it hurts me to say it, Mamori has shown signs of being het in the past. That's the thing with shows wheremales do exist. Of course, she will soon realize her love for another girl.
This is also just a crush that will just vanish after a while. Mirei and Mamori WILL end up together.
>>
>>1904690
That doesn't make her less annoying, sorry.
The show is ridiculous already, so why would they try to be realistic in this point, anyway?
Also, Mirei didn't even cared, so I kinda doubt it will end with more than friendship. And Mamori lusting after Akira will probably be the status quo, even after finding out that she's a female.
>>
>>1904695
>Not to mention that as much as it hurts me to say it, Mamori has shown signs of being het in the past

Well yeah, she's twice complained about why girls are making out with her
>why is my Prince a girl
>but we're both girls
>>
>>1904679
The bigger the board, the louder the assholes.

But yeah. I'm watching for the side characters, anyway. I find Mirei and Mamori rather dull, so they could both fuck off to have separate het romances, and so long as Charlotte stayed her crazy sadistic harem master self, Kasumi stayed sweet to her loli, and Lady Lady stayed awesomely lezzy, I'd be happy.

(Not that I find that scenario likely, and I would prefer they work their shit out and become an adorable loving couple, but I'm not THAT invested.)
>>
>>1904699
>Also, Mirei didn't even cared
I'm not confident that this show will actually have a good ending, but Mirei was really clearly devastated.
>>
>>1904690
>If Mamori had just fallen for Mirei then that would have been shallow.
You know, almost every yuri manga, anime, vns are like that and no one saying these are shallow.
>>
>>1904701
I agree there, Mirei is fucking dull. Not helped by the fuck she's a autist who barely speaks
>>
>>1904699
>Also, Mirei didn't even cared
Did we watch the same episode?
Are you forgetting all those close ups of Mirei when Tokonome was talking about Akira?
>>
>>1904703
What? She was smiling when Mamori was fantasizing about Akira. The only reaction she had was saying the view was a nightmare. But it was clearly a joke because she thought it was stupid, not her being jealous.

Mirei reaction was more like: "Good, she's happy now". If she really loved Mamori, she should feel bad about the whole thing.
>>
>>1904707
The ones she was inexpressive or the ones she was smiling?
She either didn't care or actually was happy with it.
>>
>>1904712
>The ones she was inexpressive
She is always inexpressive and it's obvious she cares for Mamori.
She was happy Mamori was being upbeat instead of crying in her bed like the other night.
>>
>>1904708
She was upset about the posters, then in the hot springs she was upset about Mamori and Torino's obsession. And trying to be happy that Mamori was happy instead of crying her eyes out like she was just a night or two before is fully indicative of her love.

There are a ton of things worth complaining about, but Mirei's attitude isn't one of them.
>>
>>1904712
Dunno, she looked pretty sad in the bath.
>>
>>1904716
>There are a ton of things worth complaining about
There aren't really that many things to complain about honestly.
>>
>>1904705
If the MC had been dreaming and setting herself up for a male character and then suddenly falling for a new female character she doesn't know (and really, hadn't considered the poissibility of dating a female) than its definitely shallow. Unfortunately a lot of Yuri manga etc are shallow but we tend to over look it cause its cute and whatnot and offers instant gratification.
>>
>>1904719
Not like the way they made it is less shallow with the way the direct it. So why not make the best kind of shallow?

Again, writing isn't the strong point in this show, anyway.
>>
>>1904721
You've got to be blind if you think character writing in this show is weak. Plot writing can't be judged before the series end.
>>
I wonder what Mamori thinks of Mirei now. If she's not her prince then who? Friend? Roommate? Just another Liberator?
>>
>>1904724
Her cute kouhai.
>>
>>1904724
"that annoying girl that keeps kissing me even though i hate it"
>>
>>1904724
That autist you just can't get rid of.
>>
>If they did, they wouldn't be watching this yuri show. Show is garbage now.

is it?
>>
>>1904726
>>1904727
>>1904728
An acquaintance level, huh? Well, next step is friendship, I guess.
>>
>>1904721
I think they're trying to at least provide something of a story and character development amongst the fanservice.

I've enjoyed what I've seen so far (minus the mental visualization rape, that was gross), so I'm gonna stick with it and cast judgement once it's done.
>>
>>1904730
How could they be anything but acquaintances when they've known each other for two days?
>>
>>1904729
If any more episodes are as bad as this one, then yes.

If this episode was just a really bad one-off and the rest of the episodes are like 1-3, then no.

I'm leaning towards the former because they still have war rape flashbacks to show.
>>
>>1904733
This episode was great though.
30 seconds out of a 24 minute ep aren't enough to consider it bad. There were so many other great moments this week.
>>
>>1904732
Mamori looks like that kindhearted archetype who claims friends really fast.
>>
Well, just remind something.
Mamori's crush on Akira will be the topic on a special episode from the BDs.
Usually they only make those episodes with status quo things, since it wouldn't make sense if the topic had changed already.

So...yeah...
>>
>>1904735
The episode was more bad than good. Lady Lady and Charlotte bath are the only good parts which is only about 1/4 of the episode.
>>
>>1904737
Mirei saved her multiple times, of course she would be kind to her. It's the nice thing to do.
That still doesn't mean they are friends and thanks to Mirei's autistic behaviour she knows next to nothing about her.
>>
>>1904738
Where do you got this? I didn't know they already reveal what will be in the specials.
>>
>>1904735
The smallest hint of het, even non-consensual het, will set /u/ raging.

I agree, though, those 30 seconds were the only part that ruined the episode for me. I do hope they won't repeat it.
>>
So assuming the next episode is going to be about Hibiki, what are your expectations?

other than a possible loli scene
>>
>>1904745
The title is 'Giant Girl, Little Heart'. Obviously its about Mirei.

To be frank, this has pushed me over the edge and caused me to completely give up on new yuri anime.

I will not be fooled anymore.
>>
>>1904745
The episode title "giant girl, little heart" is either showing how Mirei's past has broken her heart or the reveal that shows Akira is a woman and also is genuinely bad under the mask.
>>
>>1904745
I'm hoping for Akira's tits reveal and Momoka for the 4th time already.
>>
>>1904746
welp

I thought it was 'Little girl, Giant heart'
>>
>>1904747
At least we can blame low sales on het now.
It's already worse than last week after this episode.
>>
>>1904751
I don't even have that much hope. I'm alone. Nobody else cares. Sales wont be affected.
>>
>>1904747
That's also part of what bothers me.

I should have known better by this point. I hate myself for letting myself get tricked again.
>>
>>1904751
It's disappointing to think that the producers will probably think that it's the yuri content that made it fail and not the fact that they fucked it up with het.
>>
>>1904754
Subtext shows are fine.
They usually won't care about guys there.
But when they put something like kisses in it, they always need something to show: "look, these girls aren't really that lesbian!".
>>
>>1904755
If they're stupid.
Sales were fine last week.
But well...they usually are stupid.
>>
>>1904751
That applies to 90% of the shows airing now. Its normal for them to slowly dropped rank after initial solicitation. They actually start climbing back up last night.
>>
So the show is het now? I'm honestly confused on how this happened
>>
>>1904770
>So the show is het now?
If you are retarded and overly sensitive maybe.
>>
>>1904770
You wouldn't be confused if you watched the show. Neesan its better to form your own opinion by watching it. If you don't like what you see you can just ignore it and move on.
>>
>>1904732
When you literally see the other person as your prince charming in a dream (one that is not artificially induced, mind you), that should tell you something.
It's just really aggravating how quick Mamori was to completely forget/dismiss that.
>>
>>1904770
It's not a "het show" but it's not a "yuri show" anymore either.

It's just a generic ecchi show with some het and some yuri.
>>
>>1904776
She is a normal girl, not a trained soldier like Mirei or an experieced extar like the rest of the island.
Girls do get crushes quickly and are even more quick to replace it with a new one.
>>
>>1904779
And that's all it is, a crush. Mamori will get over it.
>>
>>1904778
That's what it always was, anyway.
>>
>>1904776
For virgins, it takes a while for them to realise who their real loves are. Usually why first love fails. But I hope Mirei gate-crashes Mamori's wedding with Akira in the future.
>>
>>1904770
Ecchi show with yuri fanservice as main theme of it.

I'm just afraid that to balance the yuri fanservice the people behind the show decided from now on to add other elements to it; Senran Kagura fanservice moments and QB specials should warn us what route they can follow.
>>
>>1904778
>some het
>>
Senran Kagura had male characters?
>>
>>1904783
That's not what it was marketed as and it's not what it was for the first 3 episodes. Obviously people in the production team knew what was going to be in the show, but that's not how they chose to present the show to the audience.
>>
>>1904785
Being afraid of fanservice is silly. Both QB and Senran Kagura have strong characters writing, its why I love them so much. Its not like the fanservice have any plot importance anyway.
>>
>>1904785
SK doesn't go beyong some silly sexual innuendo with their het. At least it has not rape fetish (although there's chikan-fetish, what is similar...but entirely optional).
Also, the only crush on male aren't as shallow and annoying as Mamori is being. In fact, the shallow crush Homura had on a male in the past is show as a bad thing fast.

Never watched QB, though.
>>
>>1904784
I'd be OK if that's the route they took. Considering all the promotional art it'd be horribly surprising if Mamori didn't end up with Mirei. Something would seriously need to be wrong with the creators if they didn't end up in a relationship. That or they use the cute couple look to draw viewers in and then change it.
>>
>>1904793
Because all those eroge with girls hugging each other on the cover have yuri ends, right?
>>
>>1904794
They don't?
>>
>>1904792
Regarding QB he's talking about the Vanquished Queens books/OVAs which came way after the actual series which are basically "what if bad ends", most (but not all) of which involve sexual subjugation by one or more men. They're also generally hated by the QB fanbase so I don't know why they'd think it was a good idea to repeat them now.
>>
>>1904797
Most harem promotional art are girls grabbing other girls.
Most of them have no yuri at all in the original source.

>>1904794
You just have to try really hard for those endings.
>>
>>1904801
I was being sarcastic, anon. But yeah, you can't really tell the difference between some legit yuri and het with these covers.
>>
>>1904801
Not to mention promotional art from magazines of absolutely ANY show ever where the girls are being overly friendly with each other.
>>
>>1904805
>>1904807
They just have to gaze into each other's eyes.
>>
>>1904794
But not all of them end in het.

I dont get why people are sure this show is going to end in het after only 4 episodes. Given how quickly the attitude changed it can very quickly change again.
>>
>>1904809
>I dont get why people are sure this show is going to end in het after only 4 episodes.
No one is afraid of that, it's obvious it wil lend in Mirei/Mamori as a pair, thing is we might get more annoying fanservice type we don't like here in the middle before that.
>>
>>1904809
I don't think anyone thinks it's going to have a hetero ending.

Just that we don't want to watch a show full of hetero rape.
>>
>>1904809
It won't end in het, but it won't end in yuri either.
>>
>>1904813
Now this is new. Please elaborate.
>>
>>1904816
Yuri is romance. There are yet to be any romantic connections between MCs and only 8 eps left. Has QB or SK ended in yuri?
>>
>>1904817
>only
That's plenty
>>
>>1904812
>hetero rape

Now that I get. The only time I can think of a reason they would bring it up again is to cover Mirei's past (since she lived hell), but I really hope she'll explain it rather having it shown. Honestly, I hope they won't bother with anymore of it.

>>1904817
>only 8 episodes left

We're only 4 episodes in. At the pace its going there's plenty of time for some to develop.
>>
>>1904817
Neesan pls.
>>
When are you going to learn to abandon hope and be one with the dark?
>>
>>1904827
Never. Endlessly positive is my only redeeming quality.
>>
>>1904825
I'll maybe have to approach this like other things - no expectations at all. It prevents disappointment.
>>
The reaction was pretty bad at first but I think /u/ is getting much more civil now. Although I still don't know what to feel about this show anymore. The director is obviously a short ugly boob-obsessed man-child who probably only cares about others like himself and he had already proven himself to do so before. I'm not certain if any het rape is ever going to occur again but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't either. Would it be a bad idea to stick with this show or maybe would it be a better idea to forget about it and read more mangas instead?
>>
>>1904830
It also prevents you from fully enjoying something and being excited for it.

Abandon hope and be one with the dark.
>>
>>1904831
/u/ is in denial and trying to say everything will be ok. It's plain to see that this series will not hold a prestigious position in the annals of yuri.
