What did /a/ think of the first episode of Mahou Sensou ?
There are a number of really bad shows this season. And this is the worst of them.
It's not even 'I know it's bad but it's still fun' like Strike the Blood. It's pure trash. If a show were to ever get cancelled mid-season, this would be it.
I learned that bamboo is stronger than metal
Terrible, but somehow, I don't feel like dropping it.
It was really, really ,really bad.
I mean, seriously.
>gil and seiba
Literally could not finish the episode
I couldn't even finish the first episode.
That's very, very rare for me. I sat through fucking Devil Survivor 2.
This shit is a literal trainwreck. Every fucking thing people hate about anime is in this shitheap.
so bad it's so good to me.
Is this the gary stu/mary sue shit LN that were posted and hyped around /a/ few months ago?
No, that's in April.
This, It was pretty bad but I don't want to drop it yet anyway.
Why is his Mother so scary.
>MC didn't react with a gun pointed at his face
>Bamboo > Metal
>MC makes no sense when he talks
The only thing I did like was the MC already had an established gf, because fuck shippers. Also for NTR doujins with gil stealing seiba away
It's really sad that both of the main girls are voiced by some of my favourite voice actresses, the girl who did Chiho, Kongou and Karen and the girl who did Chihaya (Chihayafuru).
They're both better than this, I feel sorry for them working on this.
Fake girlfriend and it becomes irrelevant pretty quick.
Looks like a evil bitch.
Am I the only one that thinks this image looks like a cheap chinese FSN knock-off.
Well, time to drop it.
>The only thing I did like was the MC already had an established gf,
Except its a "fake" relationship. They aren't really dating.
I was kind of hoping the Bamboo > Sword would become the new Katana > Sword
She sure seems to take it quite seriously, for a fake relationship.
It's pretty much the /a/ of animes
Jesus, I thought about picking this up out of curiousity, is it really this abysmal?
Maybe she's attracted to him, because MC powers, but he's not to her. Either way, this anime is pretty bad, or the first episode was.
Just watch the first episode. I'm going to watch up to 3.
Yes. Probably the worst thing of the season.
Go ahead and watch the first episode just for kicks.
it managed to surpass sonico, nobunaga the fool AND D-Frag in shittiness
But D-Frag was fun.
And I will be watching The Fool because Kawamori.
It looked they just wanted to get all the *annoying* backstory away and done with and get along with the ecchi or whatever.
(pointing) There's the magical gf, over there you can see all the characters just discovered their (undoubtedly amazing) secret powers, over here we can see the enemies being introduced, we can see the MC's dark edgy past being hinted at, and hey look, Generic Magic School!
I laughed too at the locker-room scene but it was shit guys
I laughed at quite a few points. Maybe you just don't like that kind of comedy.
It was good but had too much shoved into the first episode. Cute girls and decent MC.
No. LNfaggots are just hating on it was full force because they shoved too much into the first episode.
Watch it, don't let these faggots sway your judgement. 3 episode rule.
3 episode rule only applies to things with potential and this has less potential then SoniAni.
>It was good
I haven't read the LNs, but I found it hilariously bad. And this is coming from someone with very low standards.
Wasn't as bad as Pupa!
But pupa is actually good at what it's supposed to do, garner attention and advertise for the manga. Do you really think anyone expected it to sell anything? It's really cheap shit that's only there for what I listed.
On the other hand, this is just bad. I wouldn't bat an eye dropping this show, if I didn't like the actors all that much, but that doesn't exactly help the original material.
I liked it. I'm a sucker for supernatural action stuff.
Watch Noragami then, much much better.
Save yourself anon.
Noragami turned out to be a lot better than I expected. I thought it'd be mediocre going by what /a/nons mentioned about it.
Was pretty horrible. I just can't think of anything I liked about it.
I haven't read the LNs, it's just plain terrible. And this is from somebody who thinks Sekai Seifuku is the most interesting show this season.
>Magic bees came from fucking briefcase
Maybe it wasn't so bad at all.
Same here. Overall it feels like it's trying to be Bakemonogatari, but with less talking and artsy bullshit and more shounen fightan.
Bones animation is nice and I find the characters likable despite the unoriginality of it all, so it gets 3 episodes for me.
Bee guy would be a force to be reckoned with if they hadn't been in the real world.
It's good the most powerful villain was taken out early.
As someone who hasn't watched anime in some time I have to say those guys look like Saber, Gil and Nagasumi.
Why the fuck did he even use it on another magician knowing what would happen, though? It's so retarded.
absolute shit, main girl is the worst
>that explanation about why they suddenly have magicks
i haven't clicked close quicker
I'm watching this show, and, did they just kill Lancer? THOSE BASTARDS.
I assume he'll be back since it's FukuJun
>oh fuck, this show is amazing, let me see /a/'s opinion about that.
It's okay anon. Give it a few episodes and you'll get normal threads.
>this show is amazing
Do you honestly think this about Mahou Sensou?
It's fairly average, stereotypical, borrows from other shows.
That said it's still entertaining and I'm giving it a watch.
To me anime is like Nicholas Cage films. I don't watch them because they're good. I watch them because they do shit only Nicholas Cage can do.
not amazing, but a liked it more than many others animes of this season
Space dandy, for exemple
I didn't like Space Dandy either. It feels too western-ish for my tastes, and I've had enough of western comedy for a lifetime.
But at the same time, Space Dandy is not a show that takes itself seriously, so pretty much anything goes. Mahou Sensou tries to be a serious story, and falls flat on its face as a result.
I felt like the art was really really bad
Its another moontype spin-off?
I liked it, if only because I'm a sucker for magic and shit.
>People calling worst show this season
That's not Z/X Ignition
Because she is not his real mother
Well I picked up the show because I was told it had BE in the first ep which it did so mission accomplished I guess
I was going to watch that later. I'll enjoy the voice cast at least.
I could! Took me 3 hour.
FFF vs HS
Which do I get?
Doesn't really matter when the show is shit. Get HS and save like 100 MB.
What an awful attitude
>one guy gets Spidey Sense as his magical power
>other guy can throw fireballs from his hand because it's burning red
>your magic power is magical titty alteration
I think we know who got the best magic
looked like an awful clusterfuck
didn't bother watching the whole episode
I have it downloaded now, but i'm unsure of watching it if its really that shitty.
Last seasons scraps are still gaping at me to watch them, and i while i try to watch most of the 1st episodes of each show, i have a feeling this is even worse than i think it is.
Meh, i'll skim through the episode later. At least D-frag, nisekoi and noragami turned out to be decent adaptations. I'll check out dandy and that sekai seifuku shit later.
>briefcase shoots magic bullet-bees
>everything and everyone in this episode
But seriously if I watch this shit, it'll be for one thing and one thing only: Breast Expansion.
that reminds me, i still have the rest of abenobashi to get through
It managed to stand out as the shittiest show in the same season that gave us Nobunaga the Fool. It's pretty fucking bad.
YOU BECOME A MAGICIAN
YOU BECOME A MAGICIAN
EVERYBODY BECOME A MAGICIAN
Better than Nisekoi
>Dies for using magic on another magician.
It's a cruel world.
BE is such a mainstream fetish
So what had lipstick never fallen out of her purse before or some shit?
>tfw we'll never get breast expansion or futanari doujins for this because japan is stuck on kancolle.
Not dies. Loses magic power.
But then can't another magician attack him again to make him a magician again?
This premise is so retarded.
I haven't watched the fool yet.
I guess sometimes, most of /a/ claiming shits bad really means its bad. The threads were right.
I'll still take a peek later though.
Nisekoi was better than i expected. If only they could go anime original and just go for the love triangle main characters.
watched it only for titties.
Imocho is worse than both
Nope. Nisekoi stands proud as the biggest piece of shit so far.
That's no Pupa
At least imocho is fairly fappable. There's nothing appealing about this.
First episode felt really off. Probably because they rushed it because they wanted to get to ditch the real world immediately.
Eh, I'll give it 3 episodes. I think the show might get better. Plus I have plenty of time.
>bamboo swordfight against big metal sword
jesus christ fucking dropp----
will watch 3 or 4 eps.
What didn't you like about Nisekoi anon?
I thought it was bad, but not as bad as /a/ seems to think. Better than Strike the Blood, worse than Tokyo Ravens. Of course, we don't need another shitty show in the same genre airing at the same time, but, well - I guess I have a high tolerance and lack any expectations.
I'm seriously hoping that MC has some passive power that he just isn't aware of yet, something that might've hardened the bamboo because that was retarded.
It's like 5 mins and almost half the video was the OP/ED how do people hate it already?
It was painful to endure the first episode, but things got less worse by the end of it.
I'll keep an eye on it, though only for curiosity of how bad this show will get
So if magic isn't supposed to be used against magicians in the real world, how did they use that lightning thing at the end?
I can't even remember their names, just the plotholes apparently.
how the fuck Gilgamesh defeated that chick
He use Ea, duh.
Well, he is Gilgamesh.
Gate of Babylon
I think that was just to distract the sword guy
Cockroach chick didn't aim for the kill, just to blind the guy for a few seconds so nippon bamboo banzai could finish the fight
>how did they use that lightning thing at the end?
Didn't they use it only to blind the enemy so MC can attack?
I assume because she wasn't directly attacking sword guy with magic. She was just blinding him with light.
The real question for me is why the fuck did the other bad guys attack indiscriminately with magic, even when they knew there were magicians in the area. I mean the obvious reason was to demonstrate the penatly for the viewer/reader, but still.
I want to cum inside Mui
That reminds me, why did MC and this girl called each other with first name, like they already become close friends? The blonde mentioned this too IIRC. Is this a plot point or what.
Because she's obviously going to win.
Just watched, the first episode was a clusterfuck of events, I'm still going to watch this.
My favourite part is how magic spreads through direct contact....like AIDS.
I just watched it.
Currently paused at the nurse room battle scene.
I would have been okay with the first strike.
well, actually no.
Then he actually trades blows with a legit steel sword with just a bamboo blade.
It's reinforced right? There's magic in it, right?
Other than that, the episode was just a trainwreck of stuff that doesn't make sense. Pacing was off and the scenes jumped too much.
I don't know what the fuck is hapenning.
>There's magic in it, right?
Nope, it's just regular folded bamboo.
MC walks like a drunk or he got multiple balls hindering his movement?
I read spoilers from LN on animesuki and there was stated that MC actually loves blonde osanajimmie
Oh man, what was the MC's monlogue like? If I remember it was something like :I'll do anything to get outta the house...even go to hell... I couldn't stop laughing, good lord.
I'll give it a couple of episodes, heck I'll probably finish it just to see how it devolves.
Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but I hope it at least gets a little better.
Just 8 more minutes to finish this.
That's good to hear.
By the way I was looking at the manga, the 2 translated chapters, and the sword fight goes a little different since he use two brooms, who get hopelessly destroyed after a couple of hits.
>trying to cut through superior japanese bamboo sword with weak gaijin metal "sword", if you can call that slab a sword
3 episode rule.
Though I'm probably gonna drop it hard like Pupa.
Hahah, this fucking episode.
What i dont get is why they still attack when they know they gonna lose their magic?
I don't get it, I should be thinking that it's horrible but I don't. Stupid but hilarious how everyone got powers that quickly, it feels like that should've been spread out instead of happening in the span of two minutes.
You're kidding, right
He would've been better off with a briefcase full of real bees.
You know, the bee guy reminded me of someone.....
>Is out of commission mere minutes after appearing
>Uses bees inappropriately
Oh, yeah that's right.
God, that was one hell of a mess. I was laughing the whole time because of its genericness. I put this one in the not-even-trying tier.
Nevertheless, I won't drop it just yet. Trainwrecks can be fun too.
Why is Dumbledore a loli in this series?
why? he just giving advice
Absolutely horrible. The quality was worse than the last episodes of BlazBlue and bamboo > metal. That main girl is also a bit annoying. Nonetheless, I'll give it 3 episodes.
I wonder if I became a magician by watching this.
Maybe not a magician, but If you keep watching anime, you'll eventually become a wizard
did Madhouse put all of their interns on this show?
Which character is Gekkou?
I watched this just because I assumed guys were exaggerating about how bad it was. Jesus fucking Christ, you were not kidding.
