Only three hours until Shaft will kill anime once again.
I'm excited, in b4 people to tell me how shit it's going to be for the next 500 posts.
That's part of the Nisekoi ride!
It's going to be shit but I'm still excited.
Guilty pleasures certainly are a thing.
Now shut up and eat the shit being fed to you.
also enjoy the shitty pre-order sales threads.
It can only end well.
So did we ever get a confirmation that Nisekoi will be 20 episodes?
I'm excited anon, it's going to be a masterpiece, a modern classic!
It's going to redefine the harem genre
I don't think the opening will air this week
I'm excited too since I didn't mind the earlier chapters of Nisekoi. There's also suppose to be an anime only character so there that to look forward to.
>Anime only character is ANOTHER girl in his harem.
>he has not read Nisekoi
It's generic as fuck anon.
That might be nice since it could potentially kill the timeline and have it be resolved in one season. She could also become best girl and make the later episodes more bearable (if it reaches the latter parts of the manga where the "plot" takes a nosedive).
Who's going to stream it?
It's a good thing generic means absolutely nothing on /a/.
Nisekoi has a plot? As far as I can see, the author is just making fun of the audience with the whole locket thing.
It's generic in a really self aware fashion, I can really appreciate the shamelessness
What is this Zach's impression of Madoka?
>Shafts adapts shit like Nisekoi
>Deen adapts Sakura Trick and incorporates Shaft style
Sakura Trick did pretty poor at imitating the Hidamari style.
The director is an exSHAFT worker.
Sakura Trick director is SHAFT worker.
Deen is moving up in the food chain, they will be the one to animate the next nishioishin project.
How is it imitation when they're made by the same people.
Get wrecked gg
>Because it's DEEN!
It's just the director.
The Shaft circle is used to apply the "Shaft-style".
I was SHOCKED when they announced that SHAFT was doing it. I was expecting JC Staff, Xebec, maybe KyoAni or some other studio that did cute shit.
Great, now this thread is pinned in my catalog. Fuck you.
I don't like how they made Chitoge look. She was 10x hotter in the manga
Are you saying Shaft does something besides otaku pandering shit?
>SHAFT doesn't do cute shit
How much of a chance does Onodera have of wining the Nis ekoi?
What? She looks exactly like the manga version.
You wa SHOCK
I do think that when the girls are this bland and appeal to basically only one taste (normal sized girls), even SHAFT can't bring out any extra charm for many people.
>only one taste (normal sized girls)
harem with oversized girls when?
I mean that there are no small/loli girls, or well endowed mature girls; only one type of normal, teenage body type.
And SHAFT is best at bringing out that kind of variety that Nisekoi lacks.
Too bad, i can say without shame, i actually enjoyed Nisekoi.
That Shinbo got to adapt it is worst news.
Hey guys, what if Shaft spends half of the budget on the introductory episode, which is actually the oneshot adaptation? Man can dream, right? ;_;
It's the same thing, it's just not as overused in Sakura Trick as in SHAFT productions; to be honest is not even related at all since this anime focuses more in the physical interactions of the characters.
Hopefully they'll do something like add gratuitous amounts of feet service to sell it.
>YFW this anime would off sold like shit if animated by another studio
>YFW animated by shaft so it will get good sales regardless
Britfags have finally slept off their hangovers, I see.
>mfw people associate Shaft with huge sales now
All I'm looking forward to is my reaction images getting color.
>YFW this anime would off sold like shit if animated by another studio
Are you an idiot. Its popular WSJ manga that would be selling like SnK if animated by proper studio.
>YFW animated by shaft so it will get good sales regardless
Like Sasami, Maria Holic, Denpa Onna etc.? Shaft is bad news. I am truly confused how after horrible Negima anyone would give them shounen to adapt.
>trying this hard
Yeah the only good thing
Denpa Onna sold okay
Expecting this too.
Only KlK pandered me well last season.
Only Monogatari is a safe bet for SHAFT.
Though since this a harem it might work too.
>Only Monogatari is a safe bet for SHAFT.
>What is Madoka
>What is Hidamari
Maybe. I also read it for the humor.
I feel that it'll be adapted like TLR: each episode is a series of sketches with each chapter takes 10-15 minutes or so. I could be wrong tho.
The only good thing about Nisekoi is the reaction images and I'm expecting to get alot from this, I'll be rather disappointed if SHAFT doesn't deliver.
>Though since this a harem it might work too.
It could work if it was LN adaptation or something. this is Weekly Shounen Jump manga adaptation however.
As >>100034435 said, pretty much any studio would be better.
>mfw setting up rss filter this season
So much fucking stuff and some haven't even started yet.
>What is Hidamari
Unfinised at schedule, low budged shit that slowly worked up to half decend sales since Shinbo persisted in churning out more seasons
Madoka is original stuff.
Is Hidamari going to get a 5th season? Last thing was the pair of OVA, I could have included even SZS but it's not like any of them are happening right now.
Fuck, Denpa Onna had the absolute best feet.
Still waiting for season 2 ;_;7
Are you ready for the glorious head tilts, /a/nons?
This, even MSS feet were like shit in comparison; only Nise's feet shots were comparable with Denpa's-
It has 4 seasons, and an OVA just came out.
If you think it's not a succes, you're just delusional.
Well SZS did sell less and less each season so making more would hardly be a safe bet.
No one knows about Hidamari. I guess they could stop now with the latest OVAs, but since the manga is still ongoing and it always sells decently I don't see why they wouldn't make more.
But there are none
You totally missed my point, though.
Shaft bashing is so forced.
It's not even annoying anymore but just boring.
This sold well, I thought? Obviously not as well as some of their other stuff, but it got 2 season at least.
What was your point, then
>Maria Holic 3389
>Maria Holic: Alive 1186
No, not really.
Exactly, SZS didn't even do that good by the end, at first I thought and adaptation of the last part of the manga was a given, but now I think it's pretty much not happening.
I should have defined it, since Monogatari is the only stuff that is going to get a full adaptation by SHAFT, it's their only safe bet right now, that is not an original production, of course.
To begin with, Hidamari is not even on the level of success that Monogatari has, it is a safe bet, yes, but no more adaptations are confirmed right now.
Dude, s4 finished last year. There will be an S5 eventually.
Shaft has always done the occasional shitty adaption. See Negima?!
Negima?! wasn't an adaptation.
>How much of a chance does Onodera have of wining the Nis ekoi?
Based on in-story logic: more than 50%.
Based on out-of-story logic and common sense: Zero.
Yes. It was abomination.
based on onodera defense force she has 100% winning chance
It was like an anime spin-off of a manga?
Wow, that's disappointing as fuck. I thought it'd have done a lot better -- not only that it got two seasons, it was actually good, too.
It`s been a while i seen such shit taste posted.
Hope this shit sells, in order for Kizu to be released
JC Staff would be so much better.
Most anime are just supposed to boost the manga.
>s3 of arakawa never
Well Arakawa didn't do much better either and that was pretty funny too.
God damnit, moot.
For a moment I thought Shaft might've actually added something like that to their anime.
>JC Staff would be so much better.
I am a manga fag and i am happy with quailty of adaptation.
On other hand it would be horror done by SHAFT or likes.
The witch kuudere is kinda cute
I'm not watching this tho
Not for me. I immediately thought it was Hidamari.
But the hidamaris are straight
JC Staff is perfect for WCW, though A-1 would do to. Cant wait for Medusa.
Double Arts is still better
Care to explain why you think it's so terrible? Or is it just easier to bash on anything produced by SHAFT?
Yeah, I know sales aren't everything. But I still expected it to sell more than ~3,000 for season 1 and ~1,000 for season 2.
>Or is it just easier to bash on anything produced by SHAFT?
ey, i was being Shaft-fag before it become popular
Maria Holic is litterally the worst show they ever made.
That's a weird way to spell Natsu no Arashi.
Natsu no Arashi was ok show, but shit adaptation.
You still didn't answer my first, most important question. I know taste is subjective, but I want to hear what you thought was so terrible about it.
only one hour to go.
Streams will be in the usual place, idiot.
where is usual place?
Fuck off back to what ever board / website you came from.
Lurk the fuck more, faggot.
How am I supposed to know it by lurking if all you guys say are "the usual place" and "lurk moar"?
Flawless logic right there.
Dat skirt HHHHNNNNGGGGGGG
Another bland haremshit. Thank you based Shaft.
Stop posting. Fuck off back to wherever you came from. Or go make a thread on /r/ asking for streams.
>How am I supposed to know it by lurking if all you guys say are "the usual place" and "lurk moar"?
Everyone else managed to figure out. You haven't even bothered to lurk and you're not only posting on our board, but asking to be spoonfed. Seriously, the audacity of newfags these days.
>baaww they're not spoonfeeding me
It gets mentioned every now and then. If not, search foolz.
Seems like you weren't here last season because the spoonfeeding was off the charts. The link was posted in every god damn live stream thread. If you weren't a retard you'd know how to search for it in the archives. Lurk more.
Remember to not even reply to these kind of shitposts, /a/.
Shaft haters, Nisekoi manga haters know how to shitpost well in Nisekoi threads.
I have high hopes for you Shaft, make this shit tolerable.
20 min ~
>forgetting the "homura is the manliest magical girl" from episode 10
Denpa sold okay too. Enough for a s2 but Shaft is pre-occupied by other stuff.
I'm only going to watch it to see if SHAFT can make it interesting.
It'll probably sell 5k to 10k considering it's relatively popular and a harem.
Anyone who thinks this will do IS levels is delusional.
I guess only a few minutes until anime is dead.
within 10 miniutes
link to stream?
Go to hell.
Just report this faggot.
SHAFT as fuck.
Shaft confirmed from the very start
HS in 2-3 hours.
Holy shit the prolog music reminds me of Elfen Lied.
the drawings are moving?
Classy, as expected of Shinbo.
Head tilt confirmed.
>toast in mouth
>animated background characters
"I was just a normal high school student, until I ran into HER"
BUY THE BDS.
Buy the BDs!
Why male MC got Yuno's hairpin?
They want to make it as Shaftier as possible.
>no panty shot
SHAFT is slipping.
>toast in mouth
>fall on top of the guy
Can't unhear Kongou...
50k BDs confirmed.
>toast in mouth
>girl runs into guy
You willget more
Not looking good so far. This better have lots of feet.
reconstruction of the harem genre
Shaft masters of satire.
Trigger aren't even trying.
SHAFT never liked panty shots like that. Remember the first episode of Sore demo
What is wrong with the captcha being so hard
Aw yeah bitch.
Fuck you're quick, Japan.
SUDDENLY FLIPPED COLORS
Threadly reminder that Shaft has hit rock bottom.
How I love these Shaft pan and zoom animations.
Ah, I found the stream
So it's come to this. /a/ is going to watch the most generic harem ever created AND LIKE IT because it's being made by Shaft.
I'm confused, is it 8h00 or 9h00? I have to leave for 24hours at 9:00 PST so I hope it's 8
some classy school
I love plain so much, pity they never win ;_;
because better girls
But I love generic harem of any kind!
Haremfags will watch anything that has a self-insert male MC. This being made by Shaft makes it even better.
You can like a series for the visual and that is what SHAFT is all about.
Except I like generic harems.
This anime has put me in despair!
It's impossible for this not to be a masterpiece. Deal with it.
How pathetic do you have to be to self insert into harem MCs?
>calling MC scum bastard
Depends. Self-inserting into Tenchi, who is literally more powerful than God, is a sign of an out-of-control ego.
pretty good first episode for a harem.
Ha ha time for self insertion ;_;
Wait, what? how?
The opening was pretty nice.
Well it's boring
But i don't blame SHAFT,since the manga is super boring,they tried their best
It's perfect for betas who want to feel like they have power and girls lusting over their dicks.
SHAFT made what should be a totally generic pile of shit into something watchable. Bravo.
The soundtrack sounded very JRPGish at times.
>those sound effects
>that Shaft visual style
>those perfect seiyuus
Shaft has saved Nisekoi. Also,
Is this really Shaft? This has far exceed my expectations, it's spectacular.
So how long it will be?. IIRC tvtropes said it will be two cours, but can't exactly find the source on that
20 episodes, supposedly.
Well it was watchable that's for sure, nice artstyle (except for that painful CGI keychan) and great OST. Japs will probably be all for it because SHAFT and because the girls are cute.
Still, the manga is still ongoing so I expect nothing but an open ending.
I know people who don't watch full female cast shows because they can't self insert.
Good job, you're worse that shounenfags.
>so I expect nothing but an open ending.
Why would you expect anything else but a harem ending for a harem?
Just interlock your legs already!
Are they perhaps called het/haremfags?
Shaft made this interesting. Music was good too. 3 episodes.
Just like they were all for Sasami-san@ganbaranai
Hopefully it doesn't do as bad as that. The OP for was great though
>It feels like everyone is moving on and leaving me behind.jpg
The premise is about multiple keys for one hole so, it is to expect one of those keys will open the lock, right?
Sasami-san was straight awful.
There are people who actually like ClariS?
>Sasami-san was straight awful.
It had a good start and occasional nice animation but the still screen abuse after the first couple of episodes really killed it.
>not knowing that shounen is a demographic
though in fairness, this is a shounen harem, making its watchers haremfags AND shounenfags.
I can't help but hear Kirino when Chitose talks.
Sasuga worst girl
>The premise is about multiple keys for one hole so, it is to expect one of those keys will open the lock, right?
Ignore the premise. The author certainly is.
But that Nao Touyama
the girls are cute and i dont hate any of the characters too much
i dont care if the plot doesnt go anywere, its just as much sol as romance/harem
They probably had that prepared in advance
>posting on 4chan
Good job, everything you do and say from now on in totally worthless
No, it really is just a generic Harem anime. It Isn't poking fun of it, it really is. It's not horrible, but there have definitely been better harem anime than that.
I guess I'll go with Commie for this, will probably make it more watchable.
It's self-aware in the same sense that the Bakuman characters would point out how corny and straight-out-of-a-manga their own love lives were.
So is this shitty show really going to be the next Sasami san?
What if you need to combine all the keys to open the lock?
What if the guy that repaired that thing already took a look at what was inside?
There are exceptions to most rules.
Yeah, that's the strange thing.
Self-awareness is just cheap writing.
Except this time people will finish it.
So... HS in 3 hours?
Aren't 20 episodes a lot for a manga that started publishing in november 2011?
Aren't most harems shounen? I never watch either of those, but I feel like I often see these two tags together.
Another endcard by Takeuchi?
There's enough generic to fill it up.
I'm in despair!
With Nisekoi, it starts off with a decent amount of storyline but as of late it's just been "filler" type chapters so they can definitely do the 20 episodes.
Lots of them are. Love Hina certainly was shounen. However, there are a lot these days that start off as light novels and I don't think that light novels are classified in the same way as manga.
12 episodes magical girls spin-off
They're up to 105 chapters. Even with 5 chapters per episode (ludicrous!), they'd have enough.
>Reverse trap in magical girl attire
Pure SHAFT genes.
Who the fuck gets named いづみ? Shouldn't it be いずみ?
That explains why I liked so much the OST.
2 more hours
いづみ is also fine Japanese name
Nisekoi is 20 episodes long?
Why would this trash get so many episodes
It's not like anything would be resolved at all at the end
What would mean we have two Shaft shows next season.
That's a weird number. Are all airing on tv or just 13 + 7 BD eps or something?
What's SHAFT doing next season?
Mekaku City Actors
Oh! Right, totally forgot.
>2 cours of this shit
>vocaloid promotion next season
What the fuck, Shaft?
Why does the lewdest girl wears the least lewd clothes?
I didn't even like the 1st ep but that blond slut is so damn hot i'll have to keep watching.
When you see it. Look at Chitose's arm.
The arm looks deformed/shorter.
It's the opening though.
It's the OP, anon.
They played it at the end of the episode.
The ED is sung by Yuuki Aoi, not Sakamoto Maaya.
My little arm can't be this perspective depraved.
Of course. ClariS is good.
because of the perspective.
Full version of the OP
If you are over 20 and watch shit like this you have no excuse. Kill yourself.
I know It's just the cloths hides the arms features and makes it look shorter
Connect > CLICK
ITT: People complaining about other people watching what they want to watch
Garbage > Connect > CLICK
Just like the manga.
Wow, great comparison, and here I thought ClariS had more songs besides Connect and CLICK. Oh wait, you're probably a Madotard, go back to your containment thread.
Don't shitpost, anon.
I wonder if Monogatari and this can gets enough sales for another season Zetsubou-sensei and Kizu
More Zetsubou would be cool, but I want more Madoka more.
Haha oh wow you actually made me laugh.
It's like you think Shaft gets the profits from this and funds stuff itself.
>toast in mouth running
>bumps into a guy
>People can't have different tastes!
>Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei reference
Just make another season you faggots
[HorribleSubs] Nisekoi - 01 [480p].mkv
[HorribleSubs] Nisekoi - 01 [720p].mkv
I am 20, can I watch it?
After that garbage of movie you want more? Just let it go and give me more Kizu already.
>[HorribleSubs] Nisekoi - 01 [720p].ppt
*more SZB and Kizu
anime is killed
Uploading faster than I'm fucking dowloading, God damn it.
>SHAFT impersonating Dogakobo
Which groups will sub this?
same here, I dont get it. Usually when I start downloading HS releases as soon as they are there, it takes me 5-10minutes to DL. It's been almost 20minutes now and I'm still not done
FFF. Stop fucking asking this already. Fansubdb exists.
Gorilla a shit.
That was quick.
Yes, you have a little excuse.
Same here. There have been a few anime this season where the download has been incredibly slow if you grab it as soon as it's up. Not sure why. Been downloading at <75 KiB/s this how time, when normally I torrent from HS at >3Mb/s
Don't respond. Just report. There's just a faggot going into every thread for airing anime and asking who's subbing, where to download, links for streams, etc.
Count all the Shaft you can see in this image.
Oh man, I'm dying.
I need no excuse.
>weird tree texture
>weird sky color
Who was the actual director of this? Daisuki should have translated credits, but I'm not an american so I can't see them.
Is it funny beyond being generic haremshit?
I forgot all the obvious stuff thrown in to seem like an Onodera end at the beginning.
TOO BAD LEL. EVERYONE HAS LOCKETS!11!
Truly, Nisekoi is a literary masterpiece.
>weird sky color
Indeed, it is truly shakespearian!
No, not really. I'm only watching it for HanaKana and I've been following the manga since the beginning. It's really shit.
SHAFT is doing a good job though.
At least try to get it right.
Hold me /a/.
I just watched the episode, and it hit me.
Nisekoi was actually quite good at the beginning.
What the fuck happened with it now? Why did mango had to become such a filth?
Keys/lockets, same shit.
It honestly doesn't even matter in the manga anymore. I can't even remember what chapter it was last brought up.
Well, might give it a chance. I like SHAFT too, so it might turn out to be fun.
Not everyone has watched the third movie, anon.
IRC dont waste any time, I see. You are committed, if nothing else.
Well that was quick. What do both have to do with each other, though?
Are you that stupid to resort to the "IRC" bullshit?
That's funny because
Nisekoi is a reverse Romeo and Juliet where the families put them together but they hate each other.
Later in the story they even play Romeo and Juliet.
Focused too much on the girls instead of doing anything with the fake relationship.
Now that I think about it, the fake relationship shit has been pretty much nonexistant too for a long time now and all of his friends know it's not real too. On top of that there are now like 7 girls including Onodera's fucking sister that want Raku's dick. It turned from a comedy/love triangle to the epitome of generic hogshit harem crap.
Please, do not try to say Nisekoi has any kind of deep meaning, because people are just going to say you're shitposting.
You know just as well as I do that the Romeo and Juliet chapter literally had not one effect on the story.
And yet somehow I still love reading it.
Funny how that works.
They did impossible,
They added HabaKana and actually made Onodera interesting.
Too bad it loses focus and forgets what the story is actually about.
>Why did mango had to become such a filth?
The oneshot ended and they had to fill stuff for the series.
The comedy is still funny every now and then so I guess I can see that.
It's also a reaction face gold mine.
You're using deep meaning the wrong way, or without an understanding of the difference between meaning and plot.
I like it better now , since its not focus on chitoge who is a shitty main girl anyways
It all makes sense.
It's not deep. They guy just grabbed the most generic romance novel and turned it upside down for shit and giggles. That's as shallow as it gets. In the same level of deepness as naming an anime with religious shit because it sounds cool.
The Romeo and Juliet arc was some meta shit to show where he took the idea from.
This is it's only redeeming attribute.
You absolutely wut m8? When was the last time the "story" has had any movement at all? 80 chapters ago? And there is no meaning to any of them because each chapter is essentially episodic and a clean slate. The longest "arc" I can remember was that part where Kirisaki and Raku were having a fight.
He took it from every other fake romance story ever done and ran with it, there was no inspiration/basis. This story has been done easily a hundred times, he simply retconned a chapter so you'd think it would seem somewhat original.
Looks like the blonde girl will win.
It'll watch it, love me some blonde tsundere.
And the cute girls.
Pick one m8. I don't even know how many girls are candidates for his locket shit anymore.
I don't even care that shaft probably cant salvage this, I dropped the manga at the concuission arc.
But getting 20 minutes of tsundere Touyama Nao is going to be enough to make it one of my favourite shows this season.
There's only 3 for the locket, I believe, but more that aren't in the locket race.
Imouto's introduction was one of the most generic ever.
How does this guy do it? Doesn't he die a little each time he publishes a chapter?
damn, i don't watch anime but the first episode got me HOOKED!!!
It's amazing that the author still can't do shit to make Onodera interesting when he managed to salvage her sister into someone likable.
Do you think Shaft will make an episode out of the bonus chapters?
Yea, I was just like what after that chapter where she was pissed at him the entire goddamn time then someone by the last panel was dripping wet for him.
I just don't get it, maybe he just oozes male pheromones or something.
Now I know I can drop this then.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the whole "I took notes in class for Chitoge" was SHAFT original?
Is there a reason why this popular? Haven't read the Manga but the first episode seems pretty generic.
I think I remember it being in.
This entire episode was by the book from the manga I thought.
All I need from this whole show is for this face to show up, and I'll be satisfied.
Bit too slow.
Ah, come on.
Why is Shu so based?
He's a great character trapped in a shitty series, which only makes him look better.
That's like 50 chapters in, right?
I don't think we'll get to see it.
Too bad he looses da christmas cake and has to put up with megane.
Fucking fuck already!!
Its like tentacles and witches all over again.
That'll be porn if that happens.
I hope Marika will get introduced soon. Maybe 1 episode of shenanigans, 1 for Tsumugi, and then we can have Marika in episode 4.
How are the HS subs for this?
it's decent (seriously)
Can't fool me
Thank you for reminding me to rewatch that.
search 'Nisekoigatari' on sadpanda and pretend that's the ending.
jaka stop skilling
Thanks unbiased anon.
Because bad framerate.
The fuck was that
Well, I'll leave it there as proof of my inability.
Holy shit what the fuck
I can't stop laughing
You're welcome batman.
Why is SHAFT so good at making sakuga.
This is the sakuga-est show of the year.
eh the only "sakuga" worthy portion i noticed was the cooking scene and maaaaybe the gynastics gorilla pulled off
the rest of the animation is nothing special
hell i would've wanted shaft to correct the walking animations of the girls; those inward knees are just weird
The fuck are you talking about? Do you even know what sakuga means? This is not it, at all.
It's because the rest of the show is so slideshow in comparison that the few good scenes look sakuga.
>those inward knees are just weird
B-But it's moe!
Yea the walking was my only complaint. Absolutely loved the rest of it.
Those fucking eyes
This fucking quality....
He must be from bongland.
Bakery + Maid + Nurse fusion?
Yeah, Nisekoi is one of the examples when the anime adaptation if better than the original.
Lets hope they can keep it up.
Finally got around to watching.
It lacks one thing, one.
Oonuma chibis romping about.
Just what we've come to expect from Shaft.
They haven't let us down.
No perfect adaptation from the manga?
Nghhhh the ride hasn't even begun and it's already ride-ous! Arrrghhh
Can't have dreams in this god forsaken world, amigo.
The ride starts before the ride anon.
So you could say SHAFT is clever because it knows its own circlejerkers.
Well I just got back from watching the first episode and I'm pleasantly surprised.
>SHAFT style but...
>not overly lackadaisical, like Hidamary Sketch
>not overly random, like Paniponi Dash
>not overly deadpan, like Arakawa Under the Bridge
>not overly 2deep4me, like *Monogatari
>characters may be flat, but they are interesting to watch, and pretty effectively drive the plot
It reminds me of Sasami-san@Ganbaranai, if anything, which is a good thing. I cannot see them being able to screw this up.
Feel free to screencap this post and rub it in my face later, when they do screw it up.
>pretty effectively drive the plot
Just wait. If they stick to the source material, we'll see the plot come stop a full stop at some point.
Why does that faggot wear a hairband?
Probably the best anime of the season so far.
So Onodera is the promise girl?
That was explained pretty quickly.
Every girl is the promised girl
You weren't paying attention when Whatshername was yelling at MC for being effeminate, where you?
Oh boy, you are in for a surprise.
There are atleast 4 promised girls. Might be more if we get some anime original girl
Well, I watched it.
That blond girl is a bitch. I don't think I'll like her at all.
There are more
It's a harem
You get a key! You get a key! Everybody gets a key!
She is best girl though
Why is Shimakaze in this?
I will keep watching the show eagerly, then, to see which is the real promised girl. Because Kono Naka ni, Hitori Imouto ga Iru! was such a great anime...
I wonder if the whole Yakuza/gang family will ever be more than just a setting. If the author truly wants to make it interesting, he could have Raku's father getting whacked by rival Yakuza families and have Raku taking over the gang, ala Michael Corleone style.
The last scene sounded like something from Monkey Island
You won't get to see who's the real girl unless they pull an anime original ending, the manga is ongoing.
I assume all it would take is to try the key in the lock, if you know what I mean.
But if they did that we wouldn't get 20 episodes of misunderstandings.
>If the author truly wants to make it interesting
It is stale as fuck and people eat it up no matter what
Why should he change it?
It was fun. I liked it.
Better than I thought it would be. Voice actors fit the role too, even if Kanahana is voicing fucking everyone this season.
Overall im pretty pleased at how Shaft is going to do this if they keep doing what they just did.
You do realize Komi has set himself up to make some money by creating a series that could literally go for years without the story going anywhere, right?
Why would he change anything? Sure the gang aspect would be neat, but this isn't a neat series
>He isn't sitting at the back on the left side
SHAFT is truly innovating with this title
I haven't read the manga but I did watch the first episode of the anime. I haven't read the entire thread yet so forgive me if I'm repeating things that were answered.
I'm guessing Kosaki is the long lost childhood friend, seeing as how she recognized the locket and has the key?* And I'm also guessing Chitoge and Ichijo will fall for each other? I don't mind spoilers from mangabros, just tell me if things develop in a decent way or a rage-inducing way.
* Then again, it's also possible it could be Chitoge, what with that big speech about hanging onto the past. But then again then again, she didn't react in the visual-hint kind of way (i.e. gasping, close-up of eyes going wide, etc.) when she heard of the locket and promise.
Truly a deconstruction of the harem genre.
Shaft saves anime yet again.
There are atelast 3 girls with keys.
Chitoge and Onodera are two of them.
New girls will be introduced later, it's a harem not a love triangle.
>There are atelast 3 girls with keys
Why? Are they all for the same locket?
He's a manwhore like that
The author doesn't want to stop milking his manga cash cow so we don't know yet.
Dat bubblegum hair
I swear to god I could feel my brain cells rotting during this scene. I still watch anything by Shaft regardless of quality.
I thought the same thing. Truly she is Louise MK II.
It's not easy to make a good adaptation of something that's already shit
It was watchable and a better start than most of shitty harem shows. Still not sure about the outcome, though.
Have you seen Love Hina? You remember how Akamatsu introduced a new girl just to cast doubts about Naru being the 'promise girl'? Nisekoi does the exact same thing with all three girls. Not even kidding.
Well, I liked it. Definitely giving it at least 3 episodes. I thought the animation and soundtrack were both great. It's got a fun premise as well and I'm looking forward to more Yakuza antics and people who don't like each other being forced to interact. I really hope things work out for promise girl though.
This is going next to Sasami for sure
Thank god they turned this piece of shit into something watchable
The vocaloid shit can't be helped. SHAFT is the only studio that can be trusted to animate Saint Mary's feet.
>Ruri not short enough
Adaptation ruined, dropped.
She might be sitting down while Onodera is standing.
She's pretty short, maybe not quite as much as in the manga, but I'm fine with her height.
I hope Ruri's voice will be lovely deadpan. Otherwise this adaptation sucks ass.
The MC didn't seem that tall so what is she, 3 feet?
Madoka had tons of aniplex support and EDGE
Hidamari built up a fanbase after 3134 seasons
She's at least 4 feet tall, not sure of her exact height.
Damn the shitposting in most Nisekoi threads is already on it's way off the charts.
>Anime is already better than the manga
It was expected.
It'll die off later.
I expected shitposting, but not this much.
Clearly SHAFT exceeded your expectations.
It's like this for every new show that airs.
As far as I know, Nisekoi was supposed to be one of the targets of that group...
Stop with this shitty conspiracy theory shit.
It's just really the one guy who posting a pointless troll attempt every 60s.
Not really interested in this series. People sure are hyped about it.
Well I'm just surprised given the shit source material
Shaft improved this I really hope they end this with the one shot end instead, the manga now is unreadable piece of shit.
It was fun and adorable, the work they did with the music and visuals was great, the 2 main girls are being voices by 2 VAs that I love so it was even better.
Waiting for not HorribleSubs is suffering.
HAH. I'm sure anon didn't mean that.
I know I know, FFF might be the best release. Still, I want to give Commie a try, hopefully they'll make the experience a bit more entertaining.
I want to impregnate her hair.
Evetaku's supposedly subbing it too, but who knows how long that'll take.
Pretty much, it's still fun to watch though
At least it got better towards the end.
