>matching styles of earings >swapped hairstyles L I T E R A L L Y M A R R I E D A N D G A Y And even if we don't get any actual gays in the series, at least have H&B go "boys are dumb, who needs them when we have each other!".
>>2285462 >And even if we don't get any actual gays in the series, at least have H&B go "boys are dumb, who needs them when we have each other!". Yeah about that, that was especially so 'visible' in the moment Andrew showed up in episode 6 how they disliked boys... Not.
For me this episode might be the worst to date as LWA goes depending of what we see happening on the ball, I really hope Diana will get some development and would open at someone who will not be a boy Andrew or his buddy and will be Akko or some other girl but then Akko episode was about Andrew seeing her serious side and no one else so I'm not much optimistic.
>>2285583 dude it's a pretty standard western writing trope. "girls fall for guys, realize they ain't shit, decide to stick together with each other because their friendship is so important". and considering lwa is pretty western in a lot of aspects, i'm expecting it to show up here as well. at least, i hope so.
>>2285931 I kind of like the idea of Sucy being the kuudere, yet the passive dom in the relationship, while Akko is the sub whose really hyper and genki but ends up submitting because Sucy gets the upper hand.
Though eventually, they'll start to switch around when Akko figures out her weak spots.
>>2285956 I can imagine Sucy being secretly pretty deredere... It just usually gets killed off before it has a chance to show up. But if it has a way of sneaking out in less obvious ways then maybe it might just survive. I ship Sulotte though, the two nerds would be a lot better with that kind of quiet relationship than Sucy/Akko where Anything Sucy would actually do would be drowned out by Akko's screen filling genki
>>2285988 >Anything Sucy would actually do would be drowned out by Akko's screen filling genki
I believe that's a matter of execution in a story. It's easy to imagine how Sucy, being unable to truly accept her own feelings of love, would delve into odd behaviors involving Akko as a way to process her own emotions.
I imagine her doing things staying up late experimenting on her mushrooms, only to suddenly stop and spend the rest of the night watching Akko sleep. Or being strangely possesive in her own way, like having Akko always be under the effect of this or that weird concoction for weeks on end, always trying something new. By putting emphasis on this, Sucy's actions can take the spotlight, leaving Akko's usual genki demeanor only in implication.
>>2286197 >Or being strangely possesive in her own way I completely agree here. Sucy might have her own version of "bullying you cause I like you" but I can see how anyone else messing with HER lab rat is going to pay dearly. She's got plenty of emotions, she's just not comfortable with expressing many of them.
>>2285904 It's hard to be optimistic when past experiences have shown how extremely likely the scale will tip against us. I just don't want to be disappointed again.
Also the not just for the /u/, LWA has been quite a disappointment. It is just... mediocre. Like there is nothing which really makes it distinguished from your average CGDCT like Urara or service show like Maid Dragon. May as well call it Little to none development Academia now.
I was super hyped for the show before it started but now I'm on the verge of dropping. The next ep will be the make or break, I guess.
>>2286246 Okay, here's the long and the short of it: the "we've been burned before" excuse is complete bullshit. I mean, even if a show turns out not to be yuri, so what? /u/ regularly discusses yuri between people who are outright stated to be straight.
See, for any given show, your options are "discuss X show and then be happy that the yuri pans out/disappointed that it doesn't" and "discuss X show while a bunch of idiots try to convince you that the next episode is going to be 30 minutes of hairy dicks slapping each other, and then be happy that the yuri pans out/disappointed that it doesn't". And for some reason, this here yuri board has a user population that will choose the option with more dicks every single time, and cry out the same stale excuse whenever they're called out on it.
I can't be the only one who's fed up with this, especially since the "nah the trailers are all just bait, the MC will be replaced with a 10-foot tall anthropomorphic penis in the full game" crowd latched on things as blatantly yuri as NoA and VD.
>>2286328 >It's bullshit It's not but you and the others don't quite understand where it's coming from. Not surprising since it can't be taught, only learned and observed. However yes those anons that wilt at the first sign of an obstacle don't know how this board venerated perseverance if only to pass on what had yuri in it or not. Christ having yuri at the for front instead of being "relatively" hidden might've dimmed a generation. It's like they forgot they can keep their interests separate and be surprised when they overlap. Now they demand it overlaps and to their specific designs.
So as new episode goes: Akko confirmed to also like Andrew, but we got a Diana -> Akko yuri moment and also Diana falling for herself, so as best we can say Diana is a yuri related material who wasn't interested in Andrew or any other boy in her weak moment. At least that is a plus, but Akko x Andrew development is now going strongly, so we can take Akko from yuri expactations in this show since it's now obvious where Trigger goes with this for her, milder version of Luluco. Lets hope Diana will find a pretty girl to match her at some point.
>>2286328 >I mean, even if a show turns out not to be yuri, so what? I've had it up to here with this standardless, c'est la vie bullshit when it comes to canon. Feel free to prop up any pairing you want, but back in my day it was every youngsters dream to see the couple they were rooting for succeed in getting together and not just flounder in the realms of will-they-won't they (that is if they are even there to begin with).
If a show that is expected for whatever reason to feature yuri fails to deliver, or delivers something completely different, it is completely normal for people to commiserate.
It's also completely rational to approach an alleged yuri-featuring show with a degree of cynicism. Not in the straw man way you're suggesting where we see dicks everywhere,but just like you approach anything else in life
>>2286433 >I've had it up to here with this standardless, c'est la vie bullshit when it comes to canon. But why? Seriously. It's just anime. It's nothing so serious as to warrant such talk about standards, specially because we're not talking about its aesthetic value, we're just talking a about fictional love, something incredibly unimportant in the grand scope of things.
If you want to be pessimistic over ultimately irrelevant things like these, you're welcome to do so, but don't try to justify your own trust insecurities with things like poorly explained "experience in the issue" with several "you'll understand when you're older" implications.
>>2286445 Very few things make for as good a source of happiness as canon, or close-to canon yuri. It gets me through the day, most days. That's why I care.
Whatever are you doing here on 4chan's yuri board if you don't care enough about yuri to have standards? Surely, why even bother discussing yuri if that's the case? Most of what we do in our down times is incredibly unimportant in the grand scheme of things. That's a dumb argument.
The love is part of the aesthetic. An essential part. Yuri without love is like plain toast.
>>2286459 All fiction is equally fictional. It's ridiculous to expect everyone to hold the canonical aspect of a relationship in a high point, since it restricts their own imagination.
What I'm saying is that posters like you keep arguing that we are supposed to not like the things we like because it sets a lower standard, yet the whole reason why that standard is supposedly low bases itself not on an argument, but on opinion. Some people think things like a canon relationship is valuable, others don't, and that is fine. What is not fine is people thinking liking one thing or the other is more virtuous, because it simply isn't.
You yourself say it. Canon is a source of happiness, which is why you care. Dick and fart jokes can be a source of happiness too; happiness doesn't have to base itself on rationality or "high stardards". It brings me happiness when artists can excercise their imaginations over what is put in front of them by their preferred work, and make something like a ridiculous pairing. I don't expect everyone to like the same thing. I don't see why you would.
When I say yuri is, in the grand scope of things, irrelevant, I mean that acting like an elitist when discussing it is innately ridiculous. It's strange to see people applying arguments that are usually used to justify moralistic behavior (the "high standards") to something that most people would just take a good look at and give a passing laugh. I mean, it's fine if you like it, but if you get so judgmental while talking about it, it gives the impression that it's the only thing you have in life, that a single shot at it would destroy an important fundament of it. And when that comes to light, it makes every overly pessimistic post regarding the issue seem like irrelevant whining.
>>2286319 It's not that I don't enjoy certain episode, but let's be pretty honest the good episode were too far and few between. Also the show has done a pretty poor job in making me feel invested in the characters and the story. The freshness and novelty of the OVA has also been lost in series format.
>>2286328 > /u/ regularly discusses yuri between people who are outright stated to be straight. Not all of us. I personally is one who is not very into crack or non-canon pairing. But evidently the prospect that one of the characters in the ship being straight is not a deterrent to many people.
You're also very biased with your example, I'm pretty sure the cry for het for both NoA and VD were much less mild than shows which are actually het like Hibikek or Cross Ange.
And less than being concerned about dick, I'm disappointed because I know the yuri won't pan out. With that + the show being mediocre, there is just no more reason for me to invest my time.
I'm just not one who can judge a show based on what I hope it will be, and not how it actually is.
>>2286497 >Canon makes the series, and in this case it makes the series het. Why have het series on /u/? Because we got a carrot in form of Diana liking Akko or girls in general? Enough for me to follow the show till that won't get debunked.
>>2286497 The inclusion of Sun and Neptune introduced as love interests for Blake and Weiss basically threw any sign of canon yuri out the window. But its still here because the discussion about gay girls is strong within the community, and canon should always be taken with a grain of salt considering Japanese views on homosexuality.
You need to tighten your goggles sis, or leave, because clearly /u/ isnt the board for you.
>>2286510 Nobody caring about your opinion should be a given, but that's not the point. The point is nobody is interested in hearing your lecture about why other people shouldn't enjoy the show or post yuri fanart in this thread.
In one case the story actually contains the elements that this board is interested in. In the second case it explicitly does not and you have to make do with "hey, but at least you can PRETEND that it does, right?". You have to go pretty far down the "but, like, all values are subjective, man" rabbit hole to call those equally high standards for yuri content. That has nothing to do with "morals" or "virtue", just wanting stories that actually contain those elements rather than being content with table scraps. I completely agree with >>2286433: "oh well, nevermind, here are two background characters who held hands one episode" and "oh well, nevermind, at least there's a handful of fan artworks to look at while we pointedly don't discuss the now-dead relationship" can both fuck off. If you're not invested in what the story says happens, why bother watching it in the first place?
>I mean that acting like an elitist when discussing it is innately ridiculous I don't think that 4chan is the place for you. Like, at all. Expecting people here to be uninvested in the things they like and not to care about their content is what is ridiculous.
>>2286528 What is your point, you absolute dumbass? Are you trying to prove you have the superior mindset for consuming anime series with regards to yuri? Nobody cares. End of story. This thread will go on and you are free to go partake in only True Yuri somewhere else.
>>2286495 >let's be pretty honest the good episode were too far and few between. I guess you have way higher standards than I do.
I mean, even just the first two episodes were already pretty good. I still remember the race episode. And the Andrew introduction episode. Even the week episodes like the Fish episode and the Dragon episode, while weak, had their moments that I could just enjoy it. And, while the Sucy episode is an episode I would dislike froma technical standpoint, the fact that it could win me over in a different way is still good on it.
Maybe I'm bias. Maybe I liked LWA's first two OVAs that this series is making me more than satisfied - and so far, it hasn't done anything that could potentially make me drop/question the show (I'm thinking of a Haruhi Endless Eight. Or the one time Haruhi tried to coerce a certain a scene, which was in the books. But Haruhi gave me enough material to forgive those instances
>>2286537 Well, if this thing is just going to be "it's not the thing because it's not" versus "it is because it is" we might as well drop it. Even if we were to resolve this discussion satisfactorily, other people will keep bringing it up afterwards.
>>2286554 I'm all for LWA yuri, but no, actually I can't enjoy anything unless all the characters are rainbow-sparkled dykes. If you can, you probably just haven't been here long enough -- give it time.
>>2286555 That's kind of sad. I admit that I don't come here often, but I don't drop something out of frustration if it turns out there's no yuri. I can still cheer for a straight pairing if it's well-written. I can also still enjoy fanservice harems if it's amusing. I hope I never become so jaded.
Diana was cute af this episode but the rest of it had me rolling my eyes. I'm on the brink of just dropping this series too, the writing just isn't there.
>>2286568 I'd say both tsundere and opposites attract are aspects of it. Basically, in terms of character development Akko and Diana have been set up as having a lot of potential (shared past interest in Chariot, cooperative compatibility) but equally large obstacles to realizing it. Shipping Akko x Diana is basically investing in that potential and gambling that Trigger will go somewhere with it.
Personally Sucy x Akko does nothing for me because there's nothing huge that either character really does for the other, nor any chance that their relationship could be central to the resolution of the show. It is cute but it is basically a distraction; whereas Akko and Diana's position as foils meant that thematically it was possible in my mind for LWA to become the Akko x Diana show.
Anyhow, I dunno what Trigger are thinking (production pressure from Netflix maybe? We already know they placed certain demands on the production schedule, maybe they had input on the content too) but this episode pushed the heteronormativity too far for me (not just Akko, but Lotte too). Think I'll just stop watching and drop in on the threads near the series' end to find out what they did with Diana.
>>2286878 >Netflix >pushing heteronormativity Those guys would love Trigger to make LWA into lesbian porn and sell it to little girls because muh agenda. I think it's nostalgia for the times where magical girl shows were created by women instead of a committee full of old men. Those shows had a lot of "heteronormativity"
>>2286878 Well, I think it's not the right attitude to drop a show just because it doesn't deliver yuri, but I agree that the writing and delivery of LWA has been rather subpar. So that just means both reasons for me to watch the show are gone. I figure it must be the same case for you. Now is a good time to drop it, and we can always go back to check at the end.
For the love interest thingy, personally I don't think it's pressure from Netflix. It's a combination of Trigger wants to aim this show at family and children and targets the West at the same time, since it's rather the norm for main heroine in western cartoon to have a love interest.
The irony is that Andrew is basically a carbon copy of Diana in term of looks and attitude, the only difference is that he just happens to be born a Muggle.
>>2286895 I'm not fundamentalist enough to drop a show because it doesn't completely follow through with the yuri, but I don't care if you're Aria, if you lead me (or if everyone who's talking about it leads me) to believe it's yuri and it turns out that not only is it not yuri, the character(s) in question are into dudes, I'll drop it without a thought. It completely sours the entire thing for me.
Andrew's pretty much Diana with a dick so he's a character that didn't need to be created. The writers missed an opportunity to make Diana an interesting character by giving the development Diana should have gotten to Andrew. I also don't understand why Akko's and Diana's relationship wasn't written the same way. They don't have to add romantic overtones, but as main characters and foils to each other they should have an interesting dynamic.
I'm sure glad I'm not a purityfag anymore, I can enjoy the yuri artworks and continue to trashship akkoxdiana but enjoy the show for what it is. Who cares, Lotte is happy and the andrew/akko isn't the main focus of the show anyway.
>>2286920 >if you lead me (or if everyone who's talking about it leads me) to believe it's yuri and it turns out that not only is it not yuri That's the thing though, no one lead anyone into thinking this was yuri. Hell, the people from the show outright STATED they don't support AkkoxDianna and that it was just fanfiction. This is just another Hibike where it was spelled to us but some people just didn't listen.
>>2286966 I would say this is an inferior Hibikek, since despite the het everyone even the Nips acknowledge that the yuri teasing there is over the top. But there is not even yuri teasing here... LWA is more similar to Cross Ange.
>>2286966 Everyone was raving about DiannaxAkko potential up until the point when the /a/ Q&A took place, and some even continue to rave about it still. Some went to AkkoxSuccy and were like "this was totally what i wanted all along guys" until that was sunk as well.
I stepped away after the Q&A, but the infectious nature in which people were going on about it, as well as a few subtle hints in the OVA made me think that they'd at least not go full het out of nowhere. Obviously I was wrong and I should've just stuck with tried and tested pessimism. It's safer that way.
>>2286980 I would like to say so far he's appeared once every four episodes and that they'll continue with that trend but even if they do, the rest of the episodes in between have been episodic garbage.
>>2286927 I take it you stopped watching before the last five minutes or something? Lotte explicitly does not have a boyfriend, she has some dude she friendzoned because she doesn't feel that way about him. And Sucy ships Lotte/Night Fall, so we should take that just as seriously as her shipping Akko and Andrew.
>>2286982 It certainly feels like they try to pander towards the west too had (which is funny because full gay would be a lot more accepted here). They tried to keep the old cast prominent and include new characters, which made people like Diana kinda obsolete because Andrew serves the exact same role.
>>2286984 Are people already forgetting Diana is important because Shiny Chariot? Aka the main freaking plot of the show. Andrew is only there to stop the school for being closed, Diana is for the relevant stuff with Akko.
>>2286954 She outright stated she will never confess anything, regardless of what she feels. And that's a good thing because Trigger's policy of static characters:
Akko being so adamant against confessing is a good thing because all the characters in a Trigger show remain static until the end, so it means Akko will never truly do it because it would mean she stops being a static character, which goes against everything Trigger does.
I think /u/ shouldn't put too much hope on every show with a cast of female characters and is made for mass consumption. LWA was crowd-funded so the studio took a neutral stance and not pander to a specific crowd. I can't really blame the yuri fans though because legit yuri shows are extremely rare.
With all that said, there are surprises here and there, but sadly LWA isn't it. RIP Diana.
>>2286528 Shows that will contain yuri relationships tend to announce that up front. You know, straight-up yuri shows. Outside of those, you'll have to make do with coy little hints and what-if scenarios in shows that aren't explicitly wearing their yuri on their sleeves.
If you go into every show with a majority female cast and expect it to be yuri and become angry when yuri doesn't get "confirmed" in that show, then you must spend most of your time watching anime angry. Why set yourself up for disappointment based on nothing but your own misguided expectations? You're the one at fault in this scenario.
I can see why people would be pissed at a show like Hibike, that was full-blown bait, but also rare in its audacity. But on the other hand you shouldn't just be expecting a nonsense Korra-esque dyke end in a show that had otherwise not laid any ground for it. What were you seriously hoping for in LWA? What had made you think such a thing was even likely?
>>2287071 Or because there is just no plot at all.
>>2287062 In the OVA and manga, Diana has 3 roles: > A foil who constantly antagonizes Akko over her being useless --> Now H&B > Someone who is supposed to be there for Akko to show off again how cool and awesome magic is, and who will secrely cheer for her --> Andrew. And it's even more riduculous when you actually see how much they resemblance each other, Trigger basically just genderswaps Diana to get Andrew. > The rival who has petty quarrel with her all the time --> Amanda
Why the hell is Diana even here anymore? They cut down all her roles, cut all her screen time. And don't tell me the hurr durr wait till 2nd cour. She is supposed to be a major character but she gets no development and no background after 10 half of the series.
Oh wait, but actually none other than Akko got some development. Kudos to Trigger then.
>>2287089 I think /u/ as a whole, or even Nips are never really into the "confirmed" thing. For us, no het = /u/, just like how Nips always prefer couples with sexual tension but never out right stated attraction. There is just a strong aversion to real "romance".
And it's not like I watch every CGDCT shows with that mentality, its just LWA going het was actually rather... unexpected for me, given the two OVA.
Well at least since the show sucks in not just yuri I can drop it with no regret.
>>2287136 While that is true LWA is basically their little love letter to the traditional cartoons of old, why else would they give shoutouts to Hanna-Barbera and stuff? That is also why the characters will most likely stay static and also why no romance will go past teasing (blatant or not) because that was how it was done in those times as well unless the characters in a relationship were married for example.
>>2286852 >So many lies in one post. Take that post with a bit of margin since I wrote it by only watching raws and what people posted on /a/ during the stream.
Seeing now translated episode not much changed anyway from the initial post.
If Trigger wants to throw Andrew (and Frank) in with few episodes break each time to make him and Akko interact we can't really do anything about it.
I don't think it will go full romance but then who really knows what Trigger thought by adding such character like Andrew in and minimalised the importance of other girls thanks to that like the whole Amanda, Constance and Jasminka trio.
Even Diana role looks to be less of what we saw of her in the OVAs but at least ehre knowing how many episodes this show ill have there's still time to develop her properly than showing her as perfect girl who falls in love in jokish maneer with Akko and herself.
>>2285896 I agree, but on the caveat that you shouldn't be so pessimistic that you avoid obvious signs.
This is what happened to the Hibike community. They became so inundated in pessimism that they couldn't see the blatantly obvious evidence right in front of their eyes that Kumiko was a lesbian. They just absolutely refused to acknowledge it, and every single Hibike thread on /u/ was just infested with angry screaming shitbabies insisting that the series would end in disappointment, despite literally every indication otherwise.
In this case, though, pessimism is definitely called for. Little Witch Academia is almost certainly a completely hetero anime. At best, there might be a minor character pairing.
>>2287272 It didn't, and I was the ONLY PERSON in a vast ocean of doomsayers who called it.
I said that, A, Kumiko was a lesbian, and B, the series would end without a canonical pairing for Kumiko. I got it 100 percent right on both counts. EVERYONE ELSE was saying we would get Shuumiko. EVERYONE. I was the lone voice of sanity and reason and hope, and I will never stop bragging about it.
>>2287274 >EVERYONE >EVERYONE >EVERYONE No, shitlord, some people were also saying it was going to end in an open ending. (Though that was an 'at best' scenario.) Generally it was just 'there's no fucking way Kyoani is going to go full KumiRei' and guess what. They didn't. Do you have to bring this up in every vaguely relevant thread just to make yourself feel good? There's enough shitposting in the LWA threads as is without any outside help.
>>2287284 Can you blame me, though? Those threads were hell. It was so awful having to deal with a relentless barrage of people saying SHUUMIKO IS CANON, SHUUMIKO IS CANON, SHUUMIKO IS CANON, day after day after day after day after fucking day. And every time I tried to use reason and evidence to point out, "Actually, Kyoani is throwing us some pretty hard telegraphing that Kumiko is a lesbian," people would start screaming, TAKE OFF YOUR GOGGLES, YOU DELUDED MORON.
How can I not brag, now that I've been validated? I'm sure I'll eventually get over it, but the sweet glow of victory is still in my cheeks.
>>2287284 >>2287300 Oh, also, that was the same season Flip Flappers and Izetta were airing, so having Hibike finish with a yuri confession made it a perfect trifecta. I'll never forget how happy I was.
>>2287137 The Trigger guys are nostalgiafags and Japan has nostalgia for western animation too. You know Osamu Tezuka started ripping off Disney, right? Hell, Akira Toriyama decided to become a mangaka after watching 101 Dalmatians when he was a kid. In any case, old cartoons, Japanese or American, tend to be autoconclusive; sometimes with a bigger plot going on behind but mostly sticking to a basic formula. Magical girl used to be written by women and guess what, they were full of romance. After they started to being ridden by old men and the otakus got a voice, the girls weren't allowed to have important romantic plots anymore. Nowadays the magical girl genre is pretty much on life support outside the pedo ghetto on the late night slot. Little girls want to be idols now
>>2287403 Magical girl is a slightly different genre than LWA. LWA is more like Sabrina or Wendy the Witch. That's why I think the romance will not be that much deeper than your average kids show. Recess also comes to mind a bit.
>>2287406 The first magical girl show was Sally the witch and it was a Bewitched's rip-off because that show got insanely popular with Japanese women. In fact, magical girls were slice-of-life with magic until Sailor Moon revolutionized the genre and turned it into superheroe shows for girls
>>2287172 There's already 1 fix fic of sorts for ep 10, and the most prominent LWA fic writer already said she's making her own. Legit can't wait.
>>2287481 This is the biggest thing that bothered me about the episode. Other being the lack of Green Team (or rather Amanda in a sleeveless dress). The problem is that the Akko/Andrew plot is fundamentally the same as the Akko/Diana plot but it's simply way easier to realize and develop. Unless the next few episodes are mainly about Diana (which I seriously hope so), it's going to be a real shitshow for her character.
>>2287492 >Unless the next few episodes are mainly about Diana Wasn't this episode supposed to be the Diana episode where we learn stuff about her? Maybe I was lied to by /a/. They also said 11 and 12 will start the plot by introducing new characters for the second cours. Maybe I misunderstood.
>>2287489 It's too early to tell since it's a 2 season show, yuri hints were dropped in KLK in the second half. The fact that Diana got stung twice and didn't fall for a male character tells me something.
>>2287499 Trigger show about magical girls with no prominent male characters. All the ingredients for a big pile of gay, if you ignore the fact that the OVAs had no yuri whatsoever. Which apparently people were only too eager to do.
>>2287494 >Yoshinari says he has so much stuff he wants to do it won’t fit into 25 episodes. He added that it’s hard enough just to fit Akko’s story into 25, and with the current limit, the team doesn’t have enough time to delve deeper into what’s going on with Diana and Amanda. You likely won't be seeing as much of Diana as you'd like.
I don't want to bully Yoshi's directorial debut (on what's probably his dream project) but yeah, dude should just stick to animating.
Also, I hope you guy's a ready for the even more apparent focus on Andrew and his dad as the second cour drops the mostly episodic nature of the show and reveals that he had a major hand in making Chariot disappear and witches fall out of relevance. Poor Diana is going to continue being paid dust as her potentially interesting plotline of "traditionalist who lost the wonder to magic" is going to get dropped soon enough.
>>2287554 That scene wasn't for romance, it was to establish her dreams and show that magic isn't worthless, so the school isn't closed. It was just plot, Diana didn't need that plot, she's there for chariot.
>>2287509 >>2287516 >have 25 episode >not enough but then decided to throw random shit instead of something meaningful. the next 14 episode going to be rushed and clusterfuck. Many things will not be explained.
>>2287763 >in the anime, Akko and Diana seldom interact with each other and the latter shows no interest in the former unless there's a problem >in fanart, they're this lovey-dovey couple with a deep bond!
>>2287800 She's canon into BDSM, clearly. >tfw no doujin about Sucy tying Akko in her sleep >we will never see Sucy applying her weird aphrodisiacs on Akko's bearded clam >and then leaving her alone for hours on end >until she begs for any sort of release >tfw we will never be treated to a two page spread of Sucy giving Akko the most mind-blowing orgasm of her life with a single touch of her long witch fingers
>>2288369 I'll keep saying it because it's true; the OVAs were popular mainly because of the spectacle of the animation and aesthetics, not the actual writing or the characters (except Sucy, but only because she's a damn meme)
>>2288374 I thought the writing for the first OVA was really good. No groundbreaking new ideas but a well-rounded little story competently told. The second OVA was pretty weak in comparison and the TV show is all over the place.
People who ship despite and against canonical material are no different than teenager girls who ship Harry Potter x Draco Malfoy for no reason other than because they can. Losing standards in yuri relationships is the same as letting het win.
>>2288623 >Losing standards in yuri relationships is the same as letting het win. Your logic is beyond me, i will ship whenever and however. Having non-canon ships eventually makes them canon, that's called fanservice and a lot of companies do that.
>>2288758 >Anticrack-kun I'm >>2288623 and does that guy still exist? This guy used to call me by reddit-kun in every madoka thread on /a/ 4chan is a smaller place than I thought, and no, that's not me, just because I have standards dont make me full autism on his same level
>>2288748 Except it doesnt. Having no standards mean it is easier to please you and therefore companies need to make less efforts since it's conveniently easier to meet your already low standards which leads to lower quality in the industry as a whole Of course one person wont make a difference but it does make a difference in the long run
>>2289706 >but it does make a difference in the long run Isn't doesn't. Because in the end they could also just very well stop yuri shows at all if they aren't meeting anyone's standard. No way will any industry think "Oh hey, they think this is shit maybe we should make more of an effort" when the only conclusion is "welp they think it's shit, better cut our losses and not make anything like that ever again".
