Today is the day.
that looks cool i guess
Might download this to watch after finishing my Tax Law assessment.
Don't study law.
Finally a proper sakuga show.
>implying Wizard Barristers will have sakuga outside of a few episodes
Enjoy your Korean episodes
Well, sakuga is always limited to a handful of scenes to begin with. But it will be the best sakuga of the season.
My body is ready!
I hope Daiz is fast.
The girls wear an unacceptable amount of makeup and lipstick.
Been looking forward to this, can't wait
#1 Title: Lady Justice
Script: Itou Michiko
Storyboard and Episode Direction: Umetsu Yasuomi
Animation Director: Takahashi Shinya
General Animation Director: Tomaru Tatsuya
Greenhorn benmashi Cecile, on her way to her first day of work at the Butterfly lawyer agency, runs into an ongoing bank robbery. A man present at the scene, Kohinata, kills a member of the robber gang "No Face", and on the spur of the moment, Cecile decides to take on his defense. Cecile believes Kohinata's claim of self defense and fights for it, but the reason for that has to do with the past of Cecile's mother Megumi, who was imprisioned for murder charges.
>cute girl slashing a fucking plane in half
>no signs of her in the website
What is this travesty, Umetsu?
>not killing anime
I seriously hope your kidding
It's only 9 hours away
>Ep 1 - 2d 9h 4m
I don't see the point of starting a thread so early, this one isn't going to survive for 8 hours without some serious shitposting.
Well, which is it? Anichart says 2d, but others are saying 9h?
it's 2 days.
No, it's airing in less than 9 hours.
That looks fucking awesome, I really like the art style, though it kinda reminds me of Diva Mizuki
You do realize it will be along the same lines as SnK; a sakuga filled PV and only the scenes show in the PV will have sakuga in the show?
Shingeki had plenty of sakuga in scenes other than the PV ones. Mostly in the last episodes.
I have a hard time believing the animation lows will match that of SnK.
Character designs reminds me of Mezzo Forte. Probably won't get the sex scenes in this though.
I've seen anichart wrong multiple times now. Probably won't get fixed, either.

1 and 3 are likely to be well animated. 4 is a toss-up, depends on how much Utsunomiya is actually involved.
Thanks for cranking up the hype.
Who's directing episode 3?
Oh, I'm sorry. Should read
>Episode Director, Animation Director: Masashi Kudo
This looks like one of those shows that have a strong first couple of episodes, but quickly becomes garbage.
I have a feeling this show'll be bloody excellent, but never talked about and underrated.
Do the subs come out Sunday or Monday? I must know...
Don't abuse ellipses.
January 12 at 10am Pacific Time on Crunchyroll, so we can assume Horriblesubs very soon after that.
Preview pics are up.
Please be better than Magical Warfare
I'm not asking much, you son of a bitch you fucking mongel
Saw a lot of complaints in threads of that show. Was it that bad?
Not that guy, but yeah, it's terrible.
It was horrible, I wish I could forget all about it forever
There was a reason why it wasn't in the calender, the calendar was trying to protect me, us, everybody
It's the most light novel anime I've ever seen in my life.
Don't really care about animation that much as long as it all looks on model.
I don't think there's any chance of there not being some korean key animators but with 2 chief AD's it should be possible.
So not even Madhouse could save it? Damn. Now I'm getting worried for NGNL.
Who is going to stream it? cc doesn't have it listed for today.
Episode 4 would be the filler no budget episode
Nah, it'll look decent at least.
Just watch the first episode for it, you may or may not like it. Don't listen to /a/.
where's the umetsu signature grey dude? cheated
It does though.
>17:00 マギ → 17:30 神のパズル → ZEXAL（録画）→ 25:05 ノブナガ → 25:35 咲 → 26:05 となりの関くん
I guess it will be updated later, then.
If you you have at least one shred of love for your own self, you won't like it
It says it will here. Unless he forgot to change it.
So fucking hyped.
>Sword and Scales
The third line is the English title or what?
Well I can't say I hated it but I don't regret watching it, I basically watched it not expecting much and it being a shitty adaption and I ended up enjoying some parts
I believe so.
where's the umetsu signature grey dude? I feel cheated
The two orange haired chicks seem kinda cool
I take the short haired neesan, the water wizard and the pistol wizard
We'll have adventures all together
Looks like it is something only for episode 1, because here >>100089038 I see only English titles.
I love Tsunomi's and Natsuna's clothes.
Anyone interested in the audio files from the characters page on the official website?
Just posted on the 2ch sakuga thread. Likely fake, but we can dream, right?
I mean, holy shit.
Translation? I can only recognize Hashimoto and Abe, who should be expected to show up.
We have just to wait 7 hours to check if true.
Il take the cop
Tomaru, Matsuda, Hashimoto, Takahashi Shinya, Abe Nozomu, Matsumoto Keita, Ishihara Mitashi, Kise, Matsutake, Katsura, Takagi Hiroki, Kishimoto Seiji, Rinshin, Ooshiro Masaru, Abe Masami, Yamaguchi Kenichi, Kaneko Shuuichi, Watanabe Atsuko, Ishihama.
Oh, and it's not all of them, just partial.
Voice samples + characters images from the website.
I can't stand that guy and I sort of hate him but for some reason I still watch his releases.
I mean underwater fansubs release.
Why has Anichart been so inaccurate for showtimes this season?
It was even last season for certain shows like Valvrave. Nothing unusual, I think it is better using cc's schedule >>100092540 and convert the times.
you know whats sad?
most people are gonna ignore this series because they expected it to be hentai and it isnt
If you`re gonna do that might as well use
could this be AOTS?
Jesus Christ, all those hair styles.
What the fuck future?
It's either this or Sekai Seifuku. The latter didn't disappoint, I hope this doesn't either.
Better, less shitposting. Enjoy your White Album 2-tier threads.
This will be ignored, I guarantee it
Why would they think that? Just because of the director? It's not like everyone searches who the director is for a certain show anyways.
So is this Ace Attorney the anime?
BUT WITH MAGIC
Looks like pleb shit
>BUT WITH MAGIC
WB account on twitter is so ronery ;_;
Blame Chu2 And Nisekoi
dat Hashimoto smoke
For some reason,She looks fat to me
Her dress, maybe.
Best girl before the start BTW.
It is the dress.
So when are we going to play the "who's going to get raped first" game?
Im guessing the cop got raped first
Got hyped even more.
Nah This one>>100096837
Best girl anyway
Looks like a good guy.
He is the rapist.
>Storyboard: Satoru Utsunomiya
This is going to be good.
I see no arrows here >>100093565
Is this an original anime?
Oh shit I totally forgot this was airing this season.
I blame the movie quality sakuga PV
Please be good, this season is shit so far
Im really getting the Mezzo forte vibes with these two characters
gee I wonder why
I know,But for some reason I feel the character design is reused from Momoi and Suzuki
NGNL will be fine since it's lolicon wincest
It's same person.
~3h 40 min
This is the series I am most looking forward to by far so hype. It seems to have had a lot of thought and effort put into the aesthetic of both the show and promotional materials.
They're brothers and run the office together.
I can't wait for this, looks promising. We'll get 12 episodes as far as I know
Is that Korra S3
I hope this won't go Mezzo DSA kind of shit,
The art style reminds me of hentai for some reason
Yes, it was, but not in an offensive way, it's like super bad but you get curious of how things will unfold, like Valvrave and Ixion Saga were.
I want the short haired tomboy, please
I already hate her
What happened to DSA? I watched only 2 episodes of it, because it was like a boring version of Forte, and Forte was already not so good.
Well, she's probably going to be my favorite
Me too. Dandy, this and Chuu Ren are the only things I am picking up this season. The MC will hopefully get some good character development, she seems to happy for the dirty work she is doing.
>because it was like a boring version of Forte
Not that guy, but IMO, that was the problem with it. Also every episode felt kind of disjointed
Columbia disaster like taste.
You're missing out a lot of good things, this season is pretty good so far
I'm reading the manga of D-Frag, don't want to bother with Sekai Seifuku except for the porn, and thats about it. I also downloaded the first episode of Noragami but I haven't even bothered to watch it
Why does the judge's hammer needed to transform in a magical thingy to dictate sentence, this is going to be some cheesy shit, won't it
I wish it was more subtle, like a Harry Potter if he lived in the moogle world, so all the magical crimes were done on the underground, as would be all the magical investigation.
And also, the investigation and trial would take 90% of the show and it would be super-cerebral, and there would be little battling.
If there's one thing Umetsu is good at, it's action. I wouldn't expect engaging dialogues from this show.
1 hour left
Yamakan saved anime.
Now its time for Umetsu to unsave it.
ARMS is underestimated
They do among the best sakuga in industry when they care
>BARRISTERS ON MOTORCYCLES!
looks like Kite
Time for disappointment.
That sounds awesome also Ace Attorney might as well have magic with how crazy shit gets.
>Not a show about magician coffeemakers
I feel disappointed.
So it's the standard guns & girls in an urban setting umetsu shit.
Well, that was a really good start.
It has just started. Hold those fucking judgments.
>no shower scene
>no Cecile changing her clothes
Oh, come on!
Looking good so far.
Shirou and Saber are having sex again.
That fucking dragon.
C-can anyone link me to a stream, please?
The opening is really good. Loved the part with the faces of the characters.
Picked the fuck up
This is actually pretty good so far
>refresh futaba thread after 5 minutes
>at least a hundred new replies
I thought that place was supposed to be slower than us
cc0721xy on justin.tv
Wonder what it means.
Why is the old fart from Galilei Donna there?
Does someone know if futaba has an auto-refresh function/script like 4chan?
Thanks, anon. You're heaven sent.
Purple haired girl is kawaii as fuck tho
Oh, God, was the dragon using his penis?
What the fuck giant CGI dragon gorws huge blue cock and spunks out killer beuings.
Damn, those arm machine guns.
Wait, when was the last time he was in anything? Like 3 years ago? I thought he retired.
Its great. The only worry is if they spent all season budget on 1st ep.
>episode has more sakuga than all of KLK combined
Why is this allowed?
The robbers were cool, but the dragon sucks.
Dem chubby faces.
So this anime is about gun control, right?
BASED FROGBRO 2.0
Lucky frog! Jelly as fuck!
WAKAMOTE SO LEWD
I can watch this for Norio Frogamoto
No, about a pervert frog molesting a young girl.
>you cant use your magic if you are't a magic police
what with these harry potter laws?
Law & Order: Magic and Justice
Seems reasonable, considering how magic has been used so far. For all we know the only magic you can use is offensive magic.
Boring as fuck so far
Overanimation on the hair.
sasuga Magic Law and Order
That was her mother?
This shouldn't be a thing
We mecha now?
WE MECHA NOW
This was pretty silly, at least it has Wakamoto.
Welp, that was a neat episode. The budget probably got blown the fuck out though.
Fuck. My stream was laggy as hell.
How was it?
Pretty great episode subs when?
Animated too well, wouldn't watch.
Good. She summoned a fucking mech to beat up bad guys.
>that fucking mecha in the ED
will this have pornography in it?
>How was it?
Great. If the quality of the script and animation will be the same it will be easily AOTS.
Two hours until crunchyroll/horriblesubs.
Well, that was great. Hopefully it stays consistent throughout.
Man the animation looks beautiful but damn do most of the characters look stupid.
Is he sniffing that?
Well, that was fast.
saving anime normalfags moeshit forced animation pandering
No seriously, I missed it. Was it good?
>damn do most of the characters look stupid.
It's your first umetsu anime?
It's definitely possible. Ever watch Nanoha? There was a scene in the first episode where the animation suddenly changes, becomes a lot more animated than usual. It looked really out of place.
Frogbros are the best.
Dropped. You had one job, Unmetsu.
Good to see a gif of the most important part pop up immediately.
Time to sleep then
Some bitch got her face slashed
That's because that scene was animating muscles the characters didn't even have.
I wouldn't agree with him saying the hair is over-animated, but haven't you ever watched a show where the heads/body are moving so unnaturely often? I wish I had the link to this one scene I saw posted here awhile back but it was the perfect example
>robbing a bank with a motherfucking dragon
It doesn't matter what the cause is, its petty much akin to overacting. More animation =/= better animation.
Good to see the director hasn't forgot his roots.
I smell another Shangri-La here.
Sleazy, vulgar and stupid. Like all Umetsu works. Not interested.
Does it involve a boy entering a room in an abandoned house?
No, I agree with you. But it's different from just hair moving a lot.
I wonder if this is what put Shinbo off anything moving in his animes ever again?
The faces were kind of odd that scene, but it was the hair that was really jarring.
>summoning a fucking giant robot to deal with two thugs
I'm gonna like this show a lot.
auto motherfucking correct
Woha I am sorry a show about magical lawyers didn't turn out to be the intellectual stimulation you expected.
Meh, my expectations were very low anyway. I don't like his earlier works. They are all dumb and primitive.
>Perverted Wakamoto role
I never realized I wanted this
I think it is probably because even though there is likely movement like that occurring in real life we probably don't tend to process the majority of it only focusing on what is important so never really notice it and hence it looks weird when it is shown to be happening. Or it could just be that we are used to anime being a series of slides.
Sex is primitive, yes.
Even Robot Carnival?
Perversion is, yes.
I don't remember watching it. I watched Mezzo forte, Kite and Galilei Donna.
That is her magical robot.
What the actual fuck? That didn't look like it was from a Nanoha series at all.
Ep 2 preview.
Can't make an anime without a giant robot, do you even japan?
And they say mecha is dead.
No I think he botched that scene. It's okayish but the acting is really unnatural in parts, the movements too, feel more doll-like especially at the end when Nanoha's nodding and blinking and generally being weird.
Kou Yoshinari animated some cuts in Dog Days which has a similar art style and they were much more restrained. His style still, but they fit in place better (except for the porn henshin).
>I can cast a spell thiiiiis big
Didn't expect to see mecha on this series.
I find it harder to believe there is that much movement in a scene in an anime Shinbo is directing. There is more movement in that one scene then a whole season of Monogatari.
>that bath scene
>tons of movement
>still looks like ass
>more magical mecha
Based Umetsu. This season is great.
>mecha looks better than the mecha in most mecha shows
I think the sexual innuendo was a bit shoehorned into this episode. Is that just old habits of Umetsu?
I can't believe they actually made a show about wizards making coffee.
This joke was funnier when I told it to you.
高橋しんや 松田勝己 阿部望
金子秀一 村木靖 松尾雄輔 赤井俊文
石田慶一 田中宏紀 梅津泰臣
Haha, Matsuo ignoring Yamakan to work with Umetsu.
I wonder if he regrets letting Yama convince him to leave KyoAni.
Porn OAV fucking when
I think he's happy with what's he doing now and he has his TV series he designed the character coming next season.
you want frog porn?
Was there ever a doubt?
Yuusuke Matsuo, the character designer of BRS OVA and Yama no Susume.
This was pretty retarded but I think it could be really fun.
>what he's doing
>Mecha + Ace Attorney + Magic
So how did this compare to Sekai Seifuku?
You cant even compare the too. In terms of production quality, Barristers blows everything else this season out of water. SD might have some sakuga, but Barristers is better directed and looks much more impressive.
However animation and action is not all. Many will dislike Umetsu character design ( i love em though) and enjoy other type of story more.
Zvezda,Wug and Barristers are entirely different shows with pretty much nothing in common - all three being great.
Less loli, more magic
He's happy anon, happy. Are you happy?
Character wise Seifuku is better, action wise Wizard Barristers is better. Concept wise they're both ridiculous, but it's ridiculous done well.
I like both.
>1 second in
>CGI city and cars
Pretty gay character designs, did they just spray random colors on everything?
>still looking good animated
Hell yeah! AOTS.
And the mecha looks fucking cool.
Its the best animated show of the season.
A lot of cute male, that's good !
they ARE wizards
But anon, Wakamoto already did voices in h anime and h games.
And with magic powers you lose your fashion sense?
/a/non is well known for his fashion knowledge
You need to give it up to get them in the first place.
>[Zero-Raws] Wizard Barristers - 01 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4
>This is seriously a mecha show on the side
>For some reason,She looks fat to me
Me too. And I love it.
Because Imaishi is a hack.
>Nobunaga the Fool
Why? Why must everything have gundams thrown in?
Maybe not AOTY, but definitely best first episode of the year
Because mecha is justice
Also, everybody knew The Fool was going to have robots in it. It's like on every piece of promo material
Wait, people were surprised about Nobunaga being a mecha? We've known that was a mecha since it's announcement. Besides, it's a Kawamori show.
>suddenly, sol shenanigans
why? why must everything have sol thrown in?
21 MORE MINUTES
>Why? Why must everything have gundams thrown in?
Giant robots make EVERYTHING better anon.
oh boy oh yes. This looks really promising, until now the season really failed to deliver for me. Except Space Dandy
Have you seen loliconquest anon? It's great.
That's on my list too. It does sound promising, but I'm just not a big fan of loli settings because, you know. The "plot" often tends to revolve around the loli in a totally not sexual way, if you catch my drift.
1 minute left get hype
Well the setting was quite good as it was. You should watch it as soon as possible
>implying Horriblesubs is ever on time
It doesn't have anything sexual with her, not kidding. Try it.
Shit protaginist, other than that I like it.
>[HorribleSubs] Wizard Barristers - Benmashi Cecil - 01 [720p].mkv
>It doesn't have anything sexual with her, not kidding.
Her outfit is enough for my dick. Loli world domination and this (if it keeps the animation up) saved the season for me.
>[HorribleSubs] Wizard Barristers - Benmashi Cecil - 01 [720p].mkv
Go go go
Awesome first episode. The last bastion of original anime is saved.
Finally, Don't know why they aired this so late.
I can't wait for this.
Jap reaction to the episode was pretty damn great.
Unlike GaliDon which got bashed hard.
It's the only one of the trio of good old anime that is actually good.
>just find thread
>well this looks nice
>I wonder if it is on horriblesubs
>down speed is the same as my up speed
It's been up a whole 5 minutes faggot.
Is anyone other than CR subbing this?
I've yet to watch Seikai due to the loli MC too.
Even if it's not sexualized in any way or form, just the presence of a little girl for no apparent reason is killing any interest in it for me, even when the rest of the show sounds good.
(I'm not >>100114301)
I download it already, faglord.
If CR's subbing it, there's a 99% chance the other releases will be crunchy edits.
>no apparent reason
But there is a reason. Just watch it.
You sound like some normalfag from /v/
>Cecil's seiyuu is actually 17 years old
Hopefully they will drop it next episode. I actually want some decent threads and not the Space Dandy kind.
Wait, this was actually good
what the fuck
>no bath scene in ep 1
and Yellow Star.
I'll be back soon, I need to watch that one again.
Time for magical coffee.
Umetsu is so based.
I wonder how QUALITY heavy this will be. I saw a couple of questionable shots in the trailer.
Welp, Umetsu has done it. Umetsu has finally saved TV anime.
Wasn't he forced to turn Mezzo into hentai to get it funded?
It's why the sex scenes are so out of place.
You missed the words "budget" and "fanbase."
So when was this part >>100109926
OH MY BON
Did anybody else feel some of the scenes moved way too fast?
Though that might just be Umetsu's style, I admittedly haven't watched Mezzo DSA in forever.
Cecil's head size seems a bit off to me.
Is that some perverted frog voiced by Norio Watamoto?
>BG cooperation full of Viet
>No noticeable QUALITY or cut corners
It was bound to happen.
It was okay. Three episode rule is in effect.
And this is the first episode.
So is this actually good?
I liked it, one of my favorites this season so far.
It was secret mecha, first episode has a high standard of animation and cute girls with nice designs. The OST wasn't bad the story was retarded fun.
The ED is fantastic. OST in general is great.
Okay what do I win?
>Mech out of no where.
Not really crazy on the character designs, the music is great though.
OH MY BON~
brb rewatching Kite and Mezzo Forte
I wonder how often the mecha will actually come into play. Is that going to be a weekly thing.
Actually, I'm more surprised none of the promotional material had it in there at all. Feels like that would be hard to hide
>Phoenix Wright with magic powers and frog Wakamoto
Count me in.
Don't really like her in this episode. Seems like she is jelly at Cecil for showing off by taking on the case as a newbie.
The PV for next week explicitly shows a mecha battle.
One thing is sure, Cecil has more resources to fight other than her mecha.
Visuals sure are nice. I wonder if arms blew all their budget into this episode?
picked the fuck up
>Storyboard: Satoru Utsunomiya
Looking at the PV for next week I would say no.
Umetsu sure has a thing for "Japon"
>The PV for next week explicitly shows a mecha battle.
I meant before the show
Animation looks smooth as fuck
>it's directed by the guy that did Mezzo Forte
It all makes sense
Pacing is a bit fast for the first episode.
This is not possible at that distance.
> Is that going to be a weekly thing.
I meant next week there will be mecha
He was answering
>Is that going to be a weekly thing.
You forgot that they're wizard district attorneys.
They can do that easily.
Maybe the moving train and the wind resistance had something to do with it
Wizard Barristers? More like Wakamoto Barristers.
wakamoto the froge
He was in both seasons of UtaPri and had a cameo role in Nyaruko-san. I think there was another recent but I can't recall it right now.
She's dodging that giant cigarette just fine.
What part of "Magical Attorneys" you don't understand? Thay don't gotta explain shit.
That's why is not possible, the train was moving on the opposite direction than the cigarette.
Well, there is this >>100117687 It's magic.
Character interactions and introductions felt a bit weak aside from based froggy.
But cool visuals and interesting premise for sure.
Those two aren't wizards, though.
I was going to say that but I checked again and the guy is actually towards the direction of movement of the, not the other way.
That part was cool as fuck.
Well, I meant past that as well, but for now I guess so
The same direction*
>complaining about realism in an anime about magical attorneys
Wait,MC is Canadian?
Well my glove compartment is locked so are the trunk in the back
And I know my rights so you gon' need a warrant for that
It being possible or not isn't that bothers me, the fact that he flinches to a cigarette is what annoys me. Hell, he was using fire magic.
Magical cigarettes, I guess.
The CG mecha irks me.
>MC is half Canadian
>born in Ontario
Maybe his mother died of lung cancer.
Maybe it's really fucking annoying when they throw a cigarette at your face.
It was hot.
the man tryin to keep a wizard down.
Them muggles be afraid of our ill wiz-biz.
>Done by the same guy who did Galilei Donna
Awesome first episode only to fall to shit towards the end again?
Just saw there's going to be a novel version.
That's great, it'll let them flesh out the world a little more.
>that mech design
It's NiO again right ?
Have you ever been burned by a cigarette?
That shit hurts.
>Pervy magical frog
>Not about high school girls
Picked the fuck up
Anybody got gifs of the exploding train and the chopper?
Why is her head so small?
Damn, so fucking good, I had no expectations for this show. This is 12/13 eps right?
What's the deal with the head designs of everyone? It is the only thing so far putting this show off for me.
Right, go back to your Wake Up Girls idolshit or whatever.
Index: Kite Edition.
I always find it funny how people assume that somebody who doesn't like their show must like whatever their own personal most hated show is.
Not even that guy.
Obvious shitpost but I'll bite. What is you example of an exciting anime?
I don't like "exciting" things. They are usually stupid and full of dumb action.
Wow, just wow.
But they are attorneys
Are CR subs okay or should I wait for Underwater?
>I don't like boring things
>I don't like exciting things
just fuck off.
You sound like a barrel of joy to be around.
No, they are cops
That's because we assume that someone who doesn't like what we like probably likes what we don't like.
>as a Frog
>not watching it anyway
I thought you had to have a decent power level to be here.
What you find exciting I find boring. Kill la Kill put me to sleep.
>I don't like "exciting" things. They are usually stupid and full of dumb action.
I won't watch something this boring, sorry.
>No gifs of ANY of the sakuga
Fuck you too 2ch.
>anon does not like boring shows
>anon does not like exciting shows
>anon confirms he does not like anime
Please stop responding to that guy and just report the post
Nice linux reference :^)
According to supposedly the same guy that leaked that Utsunomiya was going to have an episode, there's going to be a Murase Shuukou (Ergo Proxy director) storyboard/direction, Onda Naoyuki (Ergo Proxy character designer) AD episode.
Seems very plausible since on the same post Umetsu mentioned meeting with Utsunomiya he mentioned meeting with Onda.
Will Umetsu ever go back to hentai or is he stuck going "legit"?
He only gets cast by request now IIRC. He doesn't go to auditions and such anymore.
So what kind of anime do you find exciting?
Wow, there's only one Nguyen, what is this world coming to?
That's a silly assumption to make.
Anime very rarely makes me excited. I usually enjoy slow slice of life.
Kill me now.
POST MORE GIFS
Well, it didn't take them long to ruin this.
You are so cool, dude. Please tell me more about yourself.
Why did I even bother to ask.
So much people involved in this project. I wonder if that will be a good thing for the consistency of the writing, given how this anime doesn't look like something episodic like Space Dandy.
That is typical Umetsu MC. You should have long expected it
>only likes slow paced anime
>come into a thread clearly about action fantasy anime just to shit on it
Okay. So you can leave now, yeah?
Better than Shit Dandy already. Adult Swim should've simuldubbed this instead.
Can there be someone more autistic?
She is literally Mezzo's MC + virgin.
Well I like both. They should join forces, since they are basically the only two shows not about high schoolers this season.
>Wanting the adult swim/toonami crowd in our threads
Nope, space dandy can keep them.
People biting the bait.
But Cecil is 17. Unless you mean without high school as the setting because I can think of like 5 or 6 more like that this season
>they are basically the only two shows not about high schoolers this season
There is also Nobunaga the Fool.
Eh, this seems more up AS's speed of mindless violence and action besides the cute girls. I can imagine this week's Dandy put half their audience to sleep talking about ramen.
Well she's a child protigee, but working in an "adult" environment. You know what I mean.
Yeah, but come on. I still can't understand what the guys that made this were even planning to do.
Will there be a scene like in Mezzo Forte where the girl gets fucked from both sides? I'll definitely watch it then.
The writing is all by the same people, story by Umetsu script Itou Michiko for every episode.
If anything it's too consistent, since neither has a brilliant record.
Cecil is probably the only thing keeping this show down. I'm not asking for a mindbreak, but if the show is constantly her being right and everyone around her being ignorant adults, afraid of change, I'm going to be disappointed.
See you next week.
Anyone know which group is doing this?
>bitching about kids being above narrow-minded adults in anime.
Sorry old man, this isn't hard seinen. Best drop this now.
Wait, I don't think she did anything like that this episode though. Like they found out the deal of the suspect from somebody else
Looks like this show is going to attract the disenfranchised nostalgiafags complaining about the "state of anime" judging by this thread.
It's literally him isn't it
This is pretty cool aside from a handful of the character designs.
The audio sounds a little bit weird for me but it doesn't seem like anyone else is having a problem.
It's her attitude and the way her character was presented, contrasting the rest of the cast. It just gives off that sort of vibe where her youth and innocence will bring a breath of fresh air to a world dominated by conservative adults.
I could be wrong. I hope I'm wrong. The animation is killer, and I love the premise.
The director planned this anime 15 years ago
I just hope this doesnt take a complete nosedive after episode 2 like Mezzo DSA.
Why do people tend to feel personally attacked when somebody states that he's not a big fan of the "school girls doing X" influx?
Looks like you need to make up a random excuse to hate-watch this show.
And its been shit for 15 years.
Who Moyo here?
>Coworkers complain about MCs clothing
>She's not more ridiculous dressed than everybody else in this show
If they somehow make a joke from this, it's great.
If not it shows some serious delusion in the quality of the character designs.
Its just shitty voice acting.
kiss and cry fucking never
Because those people usually imply that anyone liking "school girls doing X" are idiots/sheeps.
It's kind of hard to not feel personally attacked when you are.
>Not liking Wakamofrog
Well, she does look kind of idol-ish compared to the others
Cecil white outfit looks better anyway
>Everyone in this thread.
What a shame. I like the setting, the character designs are great, the animation was pretty damn good for this episode, but Cecil is fucking terrible.
Boohoo, this is /a/. People will say rude things to you and call you're waifu a slut. Nobody implies that you are any more of a loser than the rest here, because in the eyes of most people, watching anime in the first place is a nerd thing to do.
Agreed, but I do want to see art of faceless men mindbreaking her though.
Protag is 17 there is bound to be some sort of high school aspect.
It's typical Umetsu MC. Again, it should be long expected
Legit question. Why did they use cgi for the trian scene. It broke the immersion for me.
She's fine but I hope I can save everyone thing will fade off.
I'm positive that her mom is the one locked up? I wonder what fucked up shit she did.
I screamed. A screech of joy was echoed into my small room as I pumped my fist into the air. Mighty I stood on my chair
Timbits for dinner tonight.
>Herp a derp your taste in animu is shit. I'm so kewl guis XDDDD
Keep deluding yourself that you're not as bad as the fucking hugboxes from other sites.
>Protag is 17 there is bound to be some sort of high school aspect.
That makes no sense whatsoever. Are you saying all shows with teen protags have school involved?
>I'm positive that her mom is the one locked up?
Budget saving and/or being lazy so they could have the 2D as good as possible.
And you wonder why people would get the idea that moe fans are retarded.
But it's quite clear the 2D part costed money already. They have the budget. Why, in the love of god would you throw cgi. THere was no need to. It was at most 5 frames.
I take back what I said. They even used cgi for the buildings. They were lazy.
Must feel really pathetic to have a sense of accomplishment over a character that has done nothing but share a common nationality as you. This must be what 3rd worlders have to live for.
Action looks great, but the shitty CR encode gets all blurry and grainy during the action scenes.
Who else is doing this?
Yeah, it was more than 5 frames. And just because they do have the budget and skilled animators to make great 2D animation, doesn't mean they'll always feel the need to waste their time or money drawing it. That's unfortunately how most studios feel now.
I think he was joking
If they keep this over the top action stuff with summoning a cgi dragon to rob a bank it will be great, but I have a feeling that if they try to get serious with character development, hard lawyer work, scheming and deep meanings about being a pariah in society it will fall flat on its face, the characters as they were introduced just doesn't seem to be made for it.
The pendulum swings the other way too. There is no superior one here, we're all in the same level of shit.
>Not really crazy on the character designs
This. The characters look retarded in profile. Dunno what they did but they can't into that view.
I get they're whacky wizard designs, like harry potter or something, as far as costumes and hair. But the MC is retarded looking with that hair. And the virgin shit is annoying. Like, she's 17, not 12. The purity shy little girl shit gets annoying.
Nice scenery porn I guess, animation is good, pretty fights.
I like moe and other genres too because I'm not so autistic that I can only enjoy one thing.
>Not wanting hard lawyer work
Holy shit. It's like this is your first Umetsu anime. I'm completely surrounded by newcancer. It's disgusting.
>Finished her studies.
>Got a job.
Dude, I was just explaining why people felt insulted, not crying about the fact that they were.
Your bait did work on this faggot, but it won't work on me, good night.
They probably used the CGI to save money actually. With their chara design and the quality of animation, they do have to save some budget somewhere.
And well, a lot of the shots would be hard to make without CGI.
I would have liked some 2D mecha though.
Who cares, it was cool. Capris smoker chick is best girl.
This. Those two appear to be non-magical cops.
>this person always does it, that means it is good
MC design is shit.
I would really appreciate hard lawyer work in an anime, but only with fitting characters.
You can't make a Law & Order anime with this kind of pretty awkward feeling character interaction, especially in the butterfly office.
Of course things call always change in the next episodes.
More than the cgi, what bother me is that they sentenced that dude to death just like that. What the fuck.
You shitters know moe is in EVERYTHING right? It's not a genre nor is there an opposite side to it.
>Har lawyer work
I don't understand how anyone hasn't got this, they hate magic in any form, just look how she was stomping on the leg she just put 3 bullets in and not a shit was given.
Cecil is kind of rude and precocious. Muh prodigy shit.
Yet another anime ruined by a shit MC
Do you excuse Hiraiface because Hirai always does it?
I got the same impression.
He killed innocent bystanders, SAT officers and blew up a train, and all of this with magic.
It's as if someone started attacking a train with a rocket launcher and LMG. Of course he's been sentenced to death.
She's wearing a short skirt and a damn sailorfuku-impersonating top. Like shit, we can take the girl out of the school setting but we can't take the school setting out of the design.
Right over your head that one. You seem very inexperienced in life. Want me to fix that for you?
Her character design definitely seems based around that white girl who was putting dancing videos on YouTube and became an idol in Japan, whose name I can't remember at the moment. Right down to the nose and everything.
That's not how it works in real life.
>Agreed, but I do want to see art of faceless men mindbreaking her though.
This is fantastic. Doujins when.
CG is the latest trend. It's everywhere now. Get used to it. Magic circles and shit were good, more than make up for the mechashit.
He had his five minute pre-determined trial. What do you want, a ten year death row? Legal realism in an anime about magic lawyers?
They're probably playing up her purity so they can add more impact to the inevitable rape scene.
>That's not how it works in real life.
Well, we aren't 2D and we don't have wizard barristers either...
True, but this is Harry Potter court.
>Dude in jail
>Because he attacked someone who put him in danger of death
Seriously? This is not how it works. This shit makes no sense.
>she was stomping on the leg she just put 3 bullets in
That was pretty well done, too. Won me over.
It's Japan. Over there it's guilty until proven innocent.
Okay, enough is enough. Adding "budget" to my filter. I'll miss some worthy posts but I can't deal with babbys anymore.
I'd love to. But oh well, I will get over it.
>Seriously? This is not how it works.
>Murrika is the whole world
Why was it stated 3 times that she is still a virgin?
They could also be prejudiced against wuds too.
So otaku will actually watch
>>Murrika is the whole world
Yeah, in Bongistan they put you in prison for self defense, in glorious Freedomland we have Castle Doctrine. It is clear who is superior.
Because he defended himself with magic in a country where people aren't allowed to wear weapons.
It's normal to treat him as a suspect at least at first, then they discovered that he spent an awful lot of time in that bank, add the discrimination against mages and the fact that he is an otaku-looking loner and you got the perfect suspect.
No crime was committed in his act of self-defense and he is not being charged for that. He was arrested under the suspicion for conspiring to commit a crime (the bank robbery). Assuming their legal system works similar to the US, the prosecution in a criminal case needs to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the man was connected to the crime organization that perpetrated the robbery.
I doubt the prosecution will be able to do that, although I am sure they will try. Once the case fails, he'll be released. It is standard practice everywhere to jail people under suspicion of conspiring to commit a violent crime until their trial.
I see nothing wrong with how the anime has handled the legal details so far.
Because of the inevitable nerdrage from otaku if she wasn't.
That or Umetsu's planning a rape scene.
>in Bongistan they put you in prison for self defense
Not true actually, stop believing /pol/ and the daily mail.
>Talking about self-dense
>MC screaming "SELF-DEFENSE !?"
>When the fact they were attacking the bank is enough to invoke "self-defense" (well, a variation of it)
They truly have some weird legal system.
Because she isn't going to stay virgin very long.
Pandering and beating us over the head with how moe she is.
No one is a virgin at 17 unless they're a mormon, ugly, or autistic.
>No one is a virgin at 17
Where do you think you are?
No. Those charges came after they arrested him. They totally arrested him for killing the bank-robber. In reality, he'd have been taken, at most, for questioning. Then released.
Actually, here it would be perfectly legal, considering he killed one of the robbers, because they were about to murder one of his co-workers.
Because than her rape will be more brutal and bloody.
I believe in you, Umetsu.
>inb4 yuri episode with stock lesbian character
>> No one is a virgin at 17 unless they're a mormon, ugly, or autistic.
> Where do you think you are?
We're on /a/.
> ugly or autistic
Yeah, the math checks out.
Some girls stay virgin over 17, not because they are mormon, ugly or autistic, just because. They're rare though, I'll give you that.
Yes. It's a variation of self-defense. An application of it. They weren't attacking him but that doesn't change anything.
that's how it's supposed to work but you do know that they do their fucking best to find ways to incriminate people? That's why the 5th exists.
They held him for the crime of using magic until they could find some other shit to pin on him. Original crime is dropped completely and they're gonna do their damnedest to get him convicted for the bullshit crime and call it case closed.
Virginity and sexuality have typically had very strong associations with magic, in every culture and every time period.
Depends if it's an apollonian or dionysian society.
Japan is to wizards as America is to muslims hours after 9/11.
So that when they will rape her you'll end up enjoying it even more with that piece of information in mind.
