So... what do you guys think about Toradora 2014? Apart from god-tier background, I think it's just OK-tier. Nothing so special about it.
Knowing that it's going to have to have an open ended nothing gets resolved finish really puts the airbrakes on my hype train.
Stop this shit. I didn't even like Toradora, but this abominable piece of shit is several orders of magnitude worse.
The only reason to force yourself to watch this crap is the SHAFT factor, and I'm having trouble even doing that.
This doesn't have an ounce of originality, the "humour" is painful, and the characters are so bad they almost made me dislike a tsundere despite usually eating them up.
Fucking waste of talent, I hope SHAFT uses the cash from this to do something interesting in the future.
On the first episode Nisekoi is more like Love Hina 2014. I haven't hated a character like Chitoge this much since fucking Narusagawa.
The MC looks gayer than the blonde guy on Free.
Come on, Naru wasn't nowhere near that order of a bitch.
I generally like all kinds of tsundere, but this time around I'm really having time not being annoyed.
But at least the MC actually deserves the abuse.
Chitoge is best girl.
>Love Hina 2014
I was about to say exactly that.
But seriously, what does SHAFT have slated besides Hanamonogatari? It's plausible they're working on the Kizu movie full-time now.
-See you next week?
-Same subs same time
I'm glad I'm not alone. She had no redeeming features whatsoever. No, BUT SHE SEARCHED FOR THE LOCKET HERSELF is not a good point. She's still a selfish and stuck-up bitch.
Honestly I think I might not even watch the second episode.
>She's still a selfish and stuck-up bitch.
This makes it even better when she starts to act nicely and honest.
I wish they included that side of her at least for awhile in the 1st episode.
I'm waiting for the other two girls. If it's still shit I'll drop it.
Seems like a pretty generic gap filler to keep busy between Monogatari seasons. Knowing the plot won't go anywhere is kind of disappointing. I'll probably stick with it anyway because SHAFT.
Toradora had development, in Love Hina at least he didn't forget about searching for the promise's girl.
This is Status Quo the Animation.
I think the last important development was when Tsugumi revealed she was a reverse trap.
After that it's status quo + new girls.
But they did. >>100104519 just explained it.
Shaft is just payed to do this, right?
I recall her being that bad in the anime. Manga, not as much.
I'm guessing they have two animators duo-ing the whole thing. That's the only reason it can be taking this fucking long.
Just wait for the reverse trap.
Not enough. I wanted her to give the locket herself and at least apologize for what she said to MC.
>But seriously, what does SHAFT have slated besides Hanamonogatari?
What about that Kagerou Project/City Actors/whatever?
Glasses look cute in the OP.
She's not a part of the harem right?
And don't you want her to offer her body in apology too?
Tsunderes need time to accept their feelings.
>no small adorable girl
Even if you hate Kugyuu lolis, you can't seriously make that comparison with girls with only "normal" body types.
Well at this point she isn't a tsundere yet. She just hates the guy.
Nah, a little dere is enough. Just a little.
REAL SUBS FUCKING WHEN
It was decent.
Chitoge acted like a bitch, but she was like that at the start anyway.
The 2nd and 3rd episodes will paint her in a better light.
Looking forward to the show until it goes full harem... which will take a few episodes at least.
It's better than Sasami-san that's for sure.
>Looking forward to the show until it goes full harem... which will take a few episodes at least.
Lets hope SHAFT goes for original spinoff and ending.
has any decent group said that they want to sub this ?
You're in for a treat OP. This series is gonna turn into the most steaming pile of shit ever. Pic related.
I regret spending hours reading 100 chapters of this fucking piece of shit.
Harem? Never again.
>mfw they adapt the oneshot ending
Maybe they remove amnesia .. just like they added it into Vampire Bund.
Take your CR subs and enjoy them. Or would you rather [gg] trolling you and forgetting to sub the show in favor of whatever movie/game/bright light that gets their attention>?
We all know you are going to read the next chapter. Don't delude yourself, me.
I'm still in it for the reaction images. Nisekoi is a reaction image goldmine.
What generic shit haven't they tried yet?
They're not even going to get that far.
Is that a screenshot?
You know that you can save the actual pages, right?
Vacation trip to isolated island and a joke homicidal crime happens.
If she's a tomboy then why does she wear that ribbon.
Seriously, it looks cute.
Not from Digital Jump.
iirc, that was a gift from Chitoge or the protag... whatever
Didn't that lasted like just two chapters? Why is every moron complaining about that?
Chitoge gave it to her. Also Tsugumi is best girl. Marika is a very close second.
I think the author is intentionally using every cliche ever created, who doesn't get his metajoke was just an idiot.
Tachibana is best girl.
Her mistress told her to wear it. And to stop binding her chest. Can't be helped.
>joke homicidal crime
But the vacation trip to isolated island already happened in the past right? When their parents have a meeting and they meet each other.
Sorry, that was for>>100105154
>But the vacation trip to isolated island already happened in the past right?
Man I don't even remember this, but no I don't want to reread this...
Wait, is that an official translation?
Because that's one example of a myriad of examples as to how bad Nisekoi has gotten. The author of Nisekoi is the very definition of sellout and Nisekoi is without a doubt the most hamfisted cliched shit I've ever read in my life.
The art and animation are interesting but it's still used for shit, so it ruins all the joy.
From Viz Media, yes. I have a Viz Jump account.
How fast is the translation?
Why the fuck is SHAFT animating this garbage instead of giving us Maria Holic S3 or Soredemo Machi Wa Mawatteiru S2?
>Maria Holic S3
S2 was shit
>Soredemo Machi Wa Mawatteiru S2
that was shit too
New issues are released every monday to coincide with Jump's official weekly release in Japan. Weekly Shonen Jump is officially released every monday in Japan. The reason you're able to see translations of One Piece and Bleach earlier than that is because those are taken from copies of Jump that were acquired illegally before they were released in stores.
They got paid to, unless you honestly think studios decide what they animate unless it's their original work.
The premise of Kagepro is decent, if SHAFT can keep it up I think it could be a very good anime.
The manga, on the other hand, was completely meh
Well, I don't remember if it was an island, but they were supposed to be in an isolated place (because parents are organized crime bosses, even through Onodera's mom has nothing to do with this). There the 3 of them meet (Ichijou, Onodera and Gorilla) and then Marika should have been close because Ichijou visited her when she was bed ridden during the same time (despite she being a policeman's daughter).
Big plothole there, but >nisekoi I don't even think the author cares.
No it is you who is shit, Anon.
S2 a love. You a shit.
They got paid to. Look at the bright side. Maybe they'll use the money they make from this to work on Kizu.
Look on the downside they won't have time to work on Kizu until this is finished.
>they are all the forgotten childhood friend
Tsugumi has a chance! ;_;
Am I the only one who think the music (not the OP by Clarshit) is decent?
I’m just watching it for Shaft references
and HanaKana's one trick pony VA style
That damn ribbon is the cutest.
I hope you mean Tsugumi's and not Chitoge's.
I think that the music stood out, too.
They're doing a good job with Nisekoi.
Nisekoi is nothing like Toradora. You insult Toradora by saying that. Nisekoi is as generic and dull as a harem gets. Only IS is worse.
>You insult Toradora by saying that
Thank you. When I read the manga all I could think of was Love Hina. Toradora? Maybe a smidge but god, OP.
Shit plot, but that shoud be known since it's an addaptation of an popular manga.
But the animations and backgrounds are damn nice.
Yes, it's a waste of SHAFT.
The wouldn't be doing Kizu unless that was getting paid for by Aniplex and Kodansha though
>Nisekoi is as generic and dull as a harem gets
Sounds like Toradora to me.
I tried catching up to Nisekoi recently, despite the whole generic feel of it.
>mfw hitting the Amnesia arc
Yeah, that's bullshit, but at least Raku is a lot more better.
Best girl is winning
>not denpa itoko marriage and incest baby end
>Still believing that Kizu will happen in this decade
>Chitoge is in first
Oh my god what the fuck
Why wouldn't she be? Are you that threatend by a strong woman?
She improves A LOT. It's one of the things I like about Nisekoi, the slow but steady character development.
I still think Sakura Trick outSHAFT'd it
Was there any development after the christmas event
Anyone there who knows the meaning of ザクシャインラブ? Phrase from the very first of the show. インラブ is "in love" for sure.
Even Japanese still couldn't determine it. They are just saying it's Polish.
I love it. Not the acual story or characters mind you, those mediocre at best, but how SHAFT managed to make literally something great of such a bland material. The direction, montage, pacing, voice acting, animation, and the glorious soundtrack are all top notch.
It was great, so far.
Like The Comediam?
It seems slav, not polish though.
Polack here, this is polish, but broken as shitfuck
>[얼티메이트]  TVアニメ「ニセコイ(Nisekoi)」キャラクターソング -「本命アンサー」／桐崎千棘(CV.東山奈央)&小野寺小(CV.花澤香菜) (320K)
What's this, Character Song?
For a moment I really thought they were gonna make a ToraDora-Remake.
The music is so good. OST fucking when?
I think it's Chitoge & Onodera. iirc it's to celebrate 100 chapters or something.
This is actually funny and stylish. Toradora was just bland.
Not in a million years faggot.
>who doesn't get his metajoke was just an idiot.
That's giving him too much credit, but I agree that he may using cliches intentionaly. After all, his last work got canceled for trying to do something new and whole Nisekoi looks like 'let me do pile of cliches and milk this as long as I can'.
Sasuga /a/, you boast about lolis but don't leave your MILFs behind.
So many people haven't seen Love Hina?
Not to mention in Toradora the MC actually hooks up with the female lead.
Yeah the song is a duet
It's actually pretty decent
I'm sure he started it as a joke, a fake if you please, but then he slowly started to actually do it seriously.
Toradora was never a harem. Nisekoi is.
can any novel/mangafags share whether or not there is any resolution in the harem?
Chitoge is fucking cute with that red bow, I'm sure it will be only 3 episodes before she has fallen in love with him after calling him a piece of shit etc.
You people just don't understand it. What kind of catalyst is needed to justify the grandest expressions? Crazy, out-of-nowhere insane situations. The stupid twists, the status quo, every goddamn ridiculous idea, they're all there to bring forth the reactions. And by god, it's working.
It's a reaction face goldmine, and the author uses dynamite to produce results.
Only the exact opposite. There are three girls with a key and there's implied to be a fourth girl who hasn't be introduced yet.
Her being best girl doesn't change the fact you have shit taste.
can't wait for there to be just one fucking season of this show only for there to no resolution
maybe an OVA later on can address it
I bet it twitches when she orgasms.
>There are three girls with a key
The manga is basically 3 chapters of filler for every 1 chapter that actually advanced the plot somewhat.
Am I the only one who hates the shy-type of girls who loves the MC in secret and it's all good and shit instead of the Tsunedere?
color me pretty disappointed, I really liked the premise, too bad asshole author has to draw it out like a fag
Why do you think people like Chitoge.
Gori is pretty mediocre until she falls in love with Raku, sky-rocketing to best girl.
No, you are completely alone in liking shy girls in anime.
Pretty niche taste you got there.
Status quo ad infinitum.
Both are pretty bad but I prefer the shy ones if only for chilling potential
I thought eventually something would happen to break the cliches, maybe someone would pop out and go "Haha just kidding"
what a surprising turn of events
Romeo and Juliet is a pretty good stopping place so hopefully it stops there.
Just read the oneshot. It's great. When the manga ends I'll just pretend it has the oneshot's ending.
It's the OP.
right on, I'll do that
Yeah, the bow is one of her best features.
I actually didn't hate the first episode nearly as much as I thought I would. I doubt I will watch it all the way until the end considering it's a harem and not a typical romance so there is more room for it to turn itself to dog shit, but that wasn't too bad. Maybe it was SHAFT's playfulness that kept it interesting.
What I don't understand is why so many people like Kouko from Golden Time but hate Marika and think she's too aggressive/overbearing. Kouko is 10x worse and has way less charm points if you compare the two.
Are there really that many people on /a/ who can't discern the difference between putting your dick in crazy and putting your dick into pure love?
>currently aware manga is around chapter 100
>check pic's chapter
author's a pretty cheeky cunt isn't he?
I'd say the manga is a lot better when you marathon a lot of chapters at once.
I can understand why people would be angry with it if they only read one chapter a week, in which barely anything happens at all. But I've read the series over few days and I liked it a lot all the way through.
Koko is a protagonist
Marika is the 5th wheel in there and only serves to deter any kind of development between MC and the main 2 girls.
You need to realize Kouko only goes against Linda.
Personaly I don't hate Marika, but Chitoge is perfect and Marika has no chance against her.
is there any tangible development beyond that point though?
>"now is where the real love story begins"
And then the author doesn't address said love story for 50 some odd chapters?
seems kinda shitty to me....I really want to pick up the manga, but I'd like it to be more than a cock tease
Still, they all know the 3 girls have keys and the lock is repaired. All they need to do is go and try it. There's nothing plot related stopping them, yet the author keeps doing this generic filler instead. What a wimp.
Depends probably, I've read it since week 1 and still like it.
>only serves to deter any kind of development between MC and the main 2 girls.
If this was Marika's only purpose then I'd be perfectly okay with Gorilla or Kosaki winning but Marika also loves Raku and you could argue that her love is much stronger than any other girl's in the series.
Chitoge isn't necessarily perfect, that's just a bias opinion. Marika having no chance on the other hand is objective because she isn't the main heroine and has a death flag.
Nah it doesn't even get there. Read it for cutely drawn girls and reaction pics.
>you could argue that her love is much stronger than any other girl's in the series
I don't think it beats Onodera's but at least she shows it.
I just want them to open the lock already!
CAUSE I FEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL
>I just want them to open the lock already!
But that'd mean ending the cash cow that is nisekoi. They won't do that.
Onodera, Chitoge and Marika have keys right?
Weren't there 4 in the Zweise in Love story?
There'll be a new harem member eventually or it'll be related to Marika's secret.
They just need to go like
>the locked has a pic of them all as children
That would remove the only thing capable of ending this story and they could still keep the harem setting.
All I want to know is what is in the locket. That's my closure.
Plot twist, she has no secret.
>She actually has a real fiancee
What a tweest
Either a new girl or Seishirou-chan but she didn't remember because later her training made her forget all about her early childhood.
Aggressive Tsundere Type (Who becomes more dere as the series goes by)
and Mysterious Genki with a past of who knows what.
I've read the manga and while it's a guilty pleasure I'm aware that it's shit so that is exactly what I expected going into this...
...instead I got something a lot more enjoyable than I thought it'd be. All I'm missing now is some obligatory foot-service and I'm willing to call this another success by shaft. Don't get me wrong: it's still a generic harem, but it has enough style to make up for the lack of substance.
It could also be Onodera Imouto, she's only 1 year younger than them. She could have play with them at that time, but being younger, she doesn't remember it.
Just look at that classy lady. Raku should take her to ball room dances every weekend and show the other gangs that only the top dog can get 10s
Strict and cold senpai.
can't get over how tiny ruri is in that picture
artist dun goofed there
Don't forget reverse trap tsundere, kouhai tsundere, lewd old-man type country girl and even the girl who doesn't really want anything with him at first (Paula).
It would be glorious if it was her key that opened the locker.
The thing is: nothing effectively changes. Their relationship is the same and her behaviour towards him is the same.
I'm pretty sure she really is that small. Imagine Shu trying to stick it in.
And she doesn't really remember the promise, so she dismisses it since she "hates" him.
Perspective, anon. The real problem is Shuu being too tall.
>Raku x Gorilla
>Tsugumi x Marika
>Shuu x Ruri
Maybe she can go shlick with her sister or something.
The most surprise I've gotten from this manga is the bro liking the teacher instead of Ruri, felt bad for him.
>implying Raku is not going for the harem ending
IIRC isn't the only way to open it right now by breaking it open? It wasn't repaired entirely.
What if having a key indicates that they won't win?
What if the real contenders are Tsumugi, Haru and Paula?
>onodera x ruri
>tsugumi x shu
>marika dies due to disease
All girls x Lonelines
Raku x Shuu
Ruri needs to get laid.
Flame away but i genuinely enjoyed it and anyone who's as far in the manga as I am would hopefully agree that you need to give it time.
Repairman probably had to open it to repair it. Fuck.
Yeah the author basically delayed any development in that regard by making that "we don't want to break the locket and because of that we can't find out which girl is the one."
Side note, do you remember which chapter it was when the locket returned from Shu's uncle?
been mentioning it in every nisekoi thread i see
it's a nice harem romcom
it's far from perfect literature but gotta give credited where it is due
it maybe doing nothing but cliches but it does them very well, often cute and amusing
also the fact that it plays the cliches straight with no feeling of smug parody, fits the light hearted atmosphere
Thanks anon, don't know how you do it, remembering it so easily.
Was I the only one who, when Chitoge is introduced with toast in mouth and everything "They couldn't possibly be doing what I think they're doing..." and then "Surely someone will at least make a self-aware joke." But nope, nothing.
Nisekoi does every cliche and does them strait.
You mean rehashed style from every other Shaft show?
At least this time they draw something instead of reusing the same vector art.
If you've read the manga it comes up to be good. But they fucked up the series with the anime changing Raku's appearance and important scenes from first chapter. Also those stupid lights on the background touch my balls.
>You need to realize Kouko only goes against Linda.
You are fucking retarded
Yes, it's pretty much Toradora if you take away the character depth and study, dynamism, clear and constant development, strong themes and fitting conclusion and make it harem instead of a love polygon.
See you in 106 chapters, faggot.
I think I'll drop this and pick it back up towards the end of the season if I hear that it gets significantly better, maybe by fucking with the manga's plot a ton. Is this 1-cour?
Because they haven't yet gotten hip to the KyoAni model of doing whatever the fuck you want because you own the rights.
The Romeo&Juliet arc was damn good at least.
Surprised that the author actually went through the effort despite doing his damn best to make this the most generic harem of all.
Why are people swallowing up Mikakunin de Shinkoukei but hating on this show? From what I see both just use generic old formula, but this one has higher objective production quality since it's SHAFT so I enjoyed it much more. I actually enjoyed this, as in it was above zero, whereas Mikashin (?) was rather painful to watch.
how dare you to insult misekoi like that
I haven't checked out MdS yet, but from what I've heard, it sounds like Dogakobo doing their usual style, which has been received warmly.
Part of me wants to hope that there will be some resolution to the harem situation but the odds are so low it's making me not wanting to watch this. I liked the manga but I'm still reluctant to pick this up.
Also Onodera is the sweetest but I think Chitoge will win, she and Raku had more development over time.
God I hate Shaft's slideshow bullshit and retarded camera angles.
God I love Shaft's slideshow art and amazing camera angles.
God I'm indifferent to Shaft's slideshow art and camera angles.
God I'm Shaft's slideshow and camera angles.
I'm with these guys.
You're shaft's slideshow and camera angles and you love yourself? Talk about having an inflated ego.
God is Shaft's slideshow and camera angles.
I'm into different God slideshows and camera angle, shaft.
Thank you based Commie-sama.
I guess I'll wait for FFF.
BUT WHO WAS KEY????
Amnesia MC was actually more interesting than regular MC. Well, not interesting, but refreshing as in saying what's on his mind rather than blushing and thinking how he couldn't say that stuff.
It's a shame he got cured.
Nah, it's extremely generic and I would call it a bad manga/waste of SHAFT's time, but at the same time, I keep reading it and still kinda like it. It's probably the art.
Did you guys look at the fences when he was looking for his dropped locket?
It's like he was in an upscale prison.
I don't understand.
I love me some Shinobu but this ain't Monogatari. I know you meant Shinbou.
the only reason i'm hyped is more nisekoi doujins to flood sadpanda, the current range is just way too limited to just chitoge.
onodera doujins when
That's fine. Most of us agree that Nisekoi was actually decent until after the arc where Chitoge reconciles with her mother. It wasn't always hogshit.
Nah, there was also Tsugumi confessing to Raku.
No, this will be Shaft's greatest love story of 2014.
>waste of SHAFT's time
you can't waste trash
