How did you guys like the first episode of Nisekoi? I thought it was funnier than the manga, I never imagined nor like that voice on Onodera though.
>>
I also hated those random Araragi/Monogatari-esque shots of Raku with his head whipped back.
>>
> I never imagined nor like that voice on Onodera though
I've been reading Onodera's lines with Hanakana's voice since the very first chapter she appeared.
>>
>>100097020
Fuck the manga was so depressingly boring. I don't even want to give the anime a shot less I waste more of my life.
>>
>>100097098
>I also hated those random Araragi/Monogatari-esque shots of Raku with his head whipped back.

So the only SHAFT show you've watched is Bakemonogatari?
>>
>not waiting for better subs
fucken pleb
>>
Double Arts is infinitely better
>>
It's shit.
>>
>>100097101
I dunno, I guess I get how someone could interpret her voice as such but I find Hanakana's voice TOO soft even for Onodera.

>>100097136
Yes, I don't watch a lot of anime.
>>
Even though they got the script and the designs down just fine, it didn't feel at all like the manga to me. I could describe the manga as fluffy, but the anime is more metal, y'know?

Not that I'm complaining.
>>
My brain hurts.
>>
>>100097290
lolwtf I didn't even notice.
>>
>>100097140
>implying sub groups are that different
>>
I think someone at Shaft wanted to be an architect but couldn't make it for some reason. They've always got some really interesting designs.
>>
I liked Shu's voice though.

Jesus fucking Christ, Shaft. What is even fucking going on here.
>>
SHAFT managed to turn a generic rom com into something interesting.
>>
>>100097376
Shaft finds a way, you could say they are like the KyoAni of anime.
>>
>>100097342
They were probably told that their designs may look pretty, but the are structurally impractical bordering impossible.
>>
As a guy who's never seen the manga... I can't say I'm sure what all the guys reading the manga like this for. It seems like cookie-cutter harem comedy, and the characters were all kind of 1-dimensional
>>
>>100097376
The Shaftstract treatment doesn't work for such a straight forward series imo.
>>
>>100097406
What? I thought KyoAni were the KyoAni of anime.
>>
It was fun
>>
>>100097453
That describes Nisekoi perfectly. People who are reading the manga are too invested to pull out, but we all recognise that it is not amazing.
>>
>>100097290
>Buy the BDs

>>100097490
That wouldn't make sense.
>>
>>100097453
the manga is generic as hell

I'm just waiting for the shokugeki no soma anime
>>
I really liked the cooking scene at the start, for some reason it made me feel like I was watching an old Disney cartoon. It was probably the music.

Go back and watch your J.C.Staff shit then.
>>
Was generic as fuck not even shatf can save it.
>>
>>100097453
It is a cookie-cutter harem comedy with 1 dimensional characters, it just happens the girls are really cute, so when we started reading it we got invested with it so we can't back out of it now.

Long story short: It's shit, but it is cute shit.
>>
I liked it. I really loved to music. I am going to watch at least 6 episodes. I don't really care about the voices, i mostly think all voices are fine.
>>
>>100097518
How long has Nisekoi been going?

I read Hayate no Gotoku for like 400 chapters but it got so unbearable I just dropped it and never looked back.
>>
Shaft are the best producers in the business hands down. I'll watch anything made by them even if it's generic shit like this.
>>
>>100097635
It broke 100 chapters recently, but It must have been at least a year and a bit now.
>>
>>100097635
2 years or so.
>>
It was shit, as expected. Decent budget for SHAFT standards, but horrible execution. All the Shinbo usual quirks were misplaced in this show. Its getting old.

Seriously, Sakura Kiss and Nourin are better SHAFT shows this season than this.
>>
>>100097663
>100 chapters
you do know there are only 52 weeks in a year, right bud
>>
Any semblance of a decent story or ending was flushed down the shitter when they added more keys after Onodera and Chitogi's. Then it just turned into TLR 1.5 (minus the ecchi) and it has not looked back whatsoever.
>>
>>100097020
>I never imagined nor like that voice on Onodera though
I love the VA, but she is shit for the character.

HS is default, if there's something better available I'll take it but I'm not going to waste my patience on waiting.

>>100097690
Sometimes 2 chapters are released in a single week. I also don't want to admit how much time I have wasted following this trainwreck.

Shaft's originality makes Nisekoi watchable.

What's your point?
>>
>>100097848
trust me, Weekly Shonen Jump series come out, well, Weekly.

maybe a chapter was delayed in its scanlation, and they just posted last weeks and the newest one at the same time? I guess that does happen, sometimes.

If you watch Nisekoi for SHAFT architecture and headtilts - you can enjoy it.

If thats the comedy and well executed manga adaptation: its total failure.

Scene of MC cooking is actually great example of SHAFT runing a manga.

Nisekoi was pretty good.

Who gives a shit? It looks pretty.
I haven't read the manga because I'm not a massive pleb so I can't say if it's a bad adaptation or not.
But I love Shaft and this is a decent Shaft show.
>>
>>100097701
No, the shittening predates that. It turned to shit when it turned into a love triangle instead of a straight romcom between the two leads (that is, the first chapter of the serialization).

I'm sorry, but just because I don't gobble up every harem garbage out there doesn't mean I'm a scary outsider. Nisekoi had potential when the one-shot was the only thing that existed, but the mangaka decided to throw it away for a series that uses every cliche in the book. That's just how it goes.

Shaft has a trademark style, the point is to distinguish themselves from other studios. The art doesn't necessarily have to look good....just recognizable and distinctive.

Shaft is one of the most famous studios despite the fact that most of their shows aren't special at all.

It's like watching one of those commercials that are annoying and stupid but because they're annoying and stupid they get stuck in your head.

Sure, buddy.

She's the only girl in this series that actually has a detailed and meaningful backstory, not to mention the only one who is honest with her feelings. I understand that Raku is in love with Kosaki and all but come ON, if a girl as perfect as her wanted my D, I wouldn't even need to give it a second thought especially after seeing how devoted and loyal she is. Her intentions are 100% pure and fueled by love.

I don't understand how you can say she comes off too strong when the other girls don't even attempt to be honest with their feelings at all so you have nothing to compare it to. Chitoge is a typical tsundere minus the dere, Kosaki is a dandere who is so dan that she doesn't even get the chance to be dere, Seishirou puts Chitoge's feelings ahead of her own so she is never dere at all, and Haru is just a clone of Chitoge from the early chapters. So far the only girl who's close to kissing Raku is Marika and she's kissed him on the cheek 3 or 4 times now? Chitoge has only held hands with him 2 or 3 times?

The girl who is closest to winning SHOULD be Marika but LOLNOPE death flag.

>>100100954

I doubt this is really how it works. You are a studio, you make money from being funded to adapt shows, you are going to take on whichever project offers you the most money and best terms if there are more than one. Why do you care about the content? It is just a business like any other.

>>100101440
Shinbo might give it an anime-original ending if he feels like giving it only 1 season, although Nisekoi will probably end up with two or even three since it has a considerable fanbase and will probably sell well.
Shinbo has already deviated from the source in his artstyle and direction. He also put a toast in Chitoge's mouth when there wasn't any in the original. So I suspect that Shinbo will continue to ironically cram the show with SHAFT references/generic tropes to appeal to Monogatari/SHAFT fans while leaving the plot intact to appeal people who actually like the manga.
>>

To clarify what I mean, it felt phoned in. They didn't really put in any good symbolic type stuff I usually associate with Shaft and just stuck in a bunch of close ups, exaggerated reactions, and the usual odd backgrounds.

It's not a way to save money, it's a way to save time. Generally animators get paid the same for every scene they do even if one scene is more detailed than another scene so why would you spend more time on a scene than you need to? All it shows is that the person (or people) that worked on that specific scene were lazy assholes and either didn't have time to work on it or they felt like minimal effort was good enough.

The ironic thing is that the manga artist frequently goes off-model if it will produce a comedic effect. If consistency is your problem, SHAFT-like head tilts are the least of your concerns.

But time is money. The more time you spend on something the more work you do which isn't paid for. But with that scene it's more to emphasize what >>100101781 said which make's it a stylistic choice. It could also be use to show the passage of time and you wouldn't want to waste 15 minute of them just working in the field instead of just showing bits and pieces of interesting things that happened just like a montage.

I'm tempted to call Nisekoi's OP the best of the season.
Which is weird considering I don't really like Claris.
The animation of it is nothing outstanding (I'd rather hand that to Space Dandy), but the combination of imagery and song really works out extremely well.


Contentwise the first episode was great. The characters seem interesting as well. I feel like Shueisha was a bit skimpy on the budget, but after all it's a Jump Shounen, and those shows never seem to have good budgets.
Oh, by the way, what's the pacing on the Nisekoi manga?

>As long as the girls stay cute in the anime, it's bound to do well.
Yeah, just look at Infinite Stratos. I can't fathom why that show got 2 seasons.

Its so fucking obvious that its the Blonde's key. I don't even need to see another episode.

Actually it might not matter who has the "right" key; the story is hinted to be a bit more complicated than that.

But Onodera is totally the promised girl.

Now if she could just tone down that aggressiveness of hers and not be dying.

>tone down that aggressiveness
She's the only one who is actually honest about her feelings and actually has the guts to say it. I respect her and that's why I like her.

>>100104885
in other words, she's a slut

Well, it's Nisekoi so of course it's generic as fuck. I'm really enjoying shaft's touch though.

A slut who only goes after one guy and loves him and only him? I think you're just upset the girl you like is a whimp in comparison.

That role is taken by the mistress.

Y-san pls

>>100105326
Who the fuck is Y-san and why should I even care enough to ask?
>>
>>100105231
She's still a slut.

The manga is complete and utter shit. I'm a harem anime/manga connoisseur and have watched many terrible harem shows. Nisekoi takes the take for being one of the most blandest, boring and worthless piece if shit ever. It's even worse than Infinite Stratos or OreImo.

I don't even know who Y-san is but that's probably because I stopped frequenting /a/ for the past 2-ish months. If he's new then I don't really care either but making a big deal about a random person seems childish and irrational unless he's Daiz or something.

Anyways, 80% of this folder is Marika pictures or chapter pages so if you want me to whip out my e-peen I'll do it.

damm Paul, you really are obsessed about Nisekoi...
