>>100222253
Name a better OP this season than Golden Time OP 2. And i mean not just songs/lyrics you personally like or animation, but the purpose of op - actual impact, setting a tone, foreshadowing, emotionally preparing for the story,

There is none. Which is understandable, as most OPs are just random songs from sponsors to promote artists, but still - any other "meaningful" OPs this season?

First one great OP to listen to, is sweet, cheerful and happy. But while its pleasant song, its not outstanding - it could be replaced and barely anything would change for mood of the show.

This one however actually have impact by itself, right from the start creeps unexpected viewer that got used to Golden Time being cheerful, and portrays Kaga`s distorted state and expectation of the season great. Its chaotic, distorted, creepy - Thats the point, and that what makes it great. The feeling of discord, confusion, Koko running around trying to understand whats happening and dull cold end without resolution

I'm sorry, I just couldn't handle it. I went in trying to like it and realized I was only forcing myself to do so. I suppose maybe its just too grounded to reality for me to enjoy. Its not to say its a terrible show, but I think Idol shows a bit more niche than I originally thought.

You realize WUG is actually the explicitely state attempt to go away from "pure idorru waifus" if not "deconstruct" it as some troll? Its more like Tari Tari/Character drama than IM@S or LL.

There won't be any deconstruction in WUG, Yamakan is a huge idol fag who think AKB is the best thing ever and the only way to save Japan.
WUG is basically a publicity stunt for his new group.

They will show some bad side of the idol world (Yakuza, creepy fans) but in the end IDOL POWER will save the day every times

>>100223412
I see idol anime as a kind of variant on typical moe sol/comedies. It's those but with a mild plot, and a bit of dancing and music. So it's like, whatever. I like moe sol/comedies, so it isn't a stretch to like idol shows too. Not to mention they are a relatively new thing as a discernable category of any kind to begin with in animu; the im@s anime got the ball rolling and Love Live kept it going. I guess it's up to Yamakan to continue the ball rolling, so I guess it's safe to say that this is the end of the "idols = instant hit" streak.

Also the 3DPD idol industry is mostly a quite different fanbase from anime otaku. Idol anime are a kind of compromise, in that they can do things that the actual ones can't by setting up background stories, having them have cute interactions etc, and have characters who never age (that's a big plus) or get into scandals. In the actual idol industry the personalities and "interactions" are all completely contrived/fake and that indeed pisses me off that anyone could like that shit at all. However, in anime form, it actually works, for the same reason anything with cute girls works is proven to work 1000x better as anime than live-action.

>>100223529
>concept behind WUG
I am always amazed how people on /a/ know so little about anime that airs...

WUG is a charity anime created by Yamakan to help Sendai region (where 15000 died from earthquake and tsunami).

Its not a cheerful fairy tail like IM@S and LL, its realistic as it can get in anime, tale, depicting shady talent agency attempting to venture into idol bussiness, and picking random girls from the street that for different reasons are interested in it: while showing them that reality is nothing like anime and dreams dont come true that easily.

Yamakan audited 2000 people from Sendai to handpick 7 new VAs, that would play a girls - to specially focus on realism of the show and highligh them being amateurs. Most of them have no talent really and are doomed in this industry.

Characters have same names, appearance and partly story as real VAs behind them. Some of the VAs are orphans or people otherwise suffered from earthquake.

The city shown is real, the school uniforms, the people, the shops - everything is authentic and WUG already is celebrated in Sendai.

Meanwhile story, is not a typical Idol show, but a down to earth drama that will have it share of broken dreams and reality checks.

And I suppose that it where it sounds particularly boring to me. I don't like the sound of an idol anime in the first place, but now it is coupled with basically real life drama and it doesn't make it sound any more appealing. I'll admit, I don't research the background of every show each season to see what the whole thing will be about. I watch it and test out whether it seems interesting or not. While I am wrong about there actually being a concept to the show, that concept in and of itself does not interest me in the slightest. I'm not invested into the ideas behind the show for it to impact me at all, and so it doesn't bother me to say that I won't watch it.

Self-deluding? It's no delusion when it's a fucking fact, mate. 2D girls are way better at cute stuff than 3D. If they weren't, then cute 2D girls wouldn't work as a business model, but they quite well do.

Yes anon, there is implied NTR going on between Mikage and Komaba.

I think Hachiken is gonna turn emo...
>>
>>100224083
Nah, real girls can be really cute. But girls, not teenagers or women. Anime cuteness usually feels very forced and artificial to me.

Nothing like you depict it. By your description K-On would be heavy drama.

Probably. To be honest seiyuu/idol cuteness is even worse.
>>
>>100224128
If you don't find any 2d girls in any anime cute in any way, you're an edgy tryhard faggot is what you are. Or just a newfag who hasn't seen nearly enough to know ascertain between forced moe and actual moe.
>>
>>100224123
>there is implied NTR going on between Mikage and Komaba
I-I was just hoping it was all a big misunderstanding and that there would be a nice joke or sketch where Hachiken makes fun of himself for nothing at the end. I'm not sure if I want to get on this train. But who am I kidding, my curiosity is far greater than my fears right now.

Also, is the fanbase here quiet until the new episode airs? I havn't seen a single thread since I missed the premiere day.

That scene where Haruka breaks down in front of Miki and Ritsuko out of the blue and they are so shocked by it that they can't even attempt to console her, but just stare at her in flabbergasted awe, you can't compare that to K-ON dude.

Several threads actually. Sadly almost no one posts in them... The show isn't very popular for strange reasons.

I'm tempted to read the manga just so I can find out what actually happens in the end with the whole NTR thing...
>>
>>100224280

Stop being in denial. We may prefer 2D girls/women but that doesn't make 2D girls/women a "better business model".

Go ask any fucking male on the street what he thinks about 2D girls/women and then call me.
>>
>>100224225
Some are cute, but every time when I hear this annoying "onii-chaaaan!" I feel embarrassed.
>>
>>100224331
That is quite sad. I'll be sure to look out for them more often then.

I would only put Gin no Saji as a true second season, since it skipped only one cour. The original SYD was more than three years ago, with only a few OVAs in between.

Wow you must be retarded. Even it's a 2-cour or more show it doesn't put this in this season. Shows are classified by season from the season they originally air in.
>>
>>100224274
You sure are easily impressed. It was handled very midly, and the only emotional impact as always was sweet cheer. K-On had better drama and emotions than IM@S anime by far.
>>
>>100224490
You are retard. Its not a sales thread. Everything that airs now is included.

Detective Conan for example is AOTS every S.
>>
>>100224414

You'd expect a comfy and relaxing show about farming from the creator of FMA to be more popular...

... I guess it's probably because it lacks something /a/ could latch onto in an instant. Moe? Incest? More girls?
>>
>>100224537
Gin no Saji is popular enogth. Its just not discussed. It does not need to be. Plus, a lot of people already read manga.
>>
>>100224369
Well, sure, in fucking 'Murrifatstan it doesn't. But they're not part of the market, so their opinion is irrelevant.
>>
>>100222142
This is the best in the list. Your taste is improving, Lelouch.

>>100222876

This season is overwhelming me a bit. The shows themselves don't tend to be mind-blowingly good, but god damn there are a lot of them that are quite watchable so far nonetheless.
Pretty much this. Won't be a season of amazing and memorable anime, but damn, there are enough good ones that you have 2-5 different anime to look forward to every day.
>>
>>100224536
Then why are all the AOTY charts wrong? They don't list Detective Conan as AOTY every year.
>>
>>100223603
Yes, of course.
>>
>>100224501
Their eyes were dead and cold while looking at her completely break down, Miki was in total shock and looked like she was going to go insane herself just by watching her. Then they cut away to another scene. There was no sweet or cheerful thing about any of that episode.
>>
>>100224537
It may be more that it looks interesting, but does not have the amount of impact that other series have. There is always a sort of theme or token to a show, whereas Gin no Saji (while it does have its own qualities) can't "flaunt" them around, so to say. Couple that with the small fanbase that doesn't explode into treats with new and fun experiences every episode (mostly because it is small in the first place) and it puts the show in a meek place in people's minds. Other than that >>100224575 says it pretty well. The show tells itself and doesn't require a lot of discussion, and so the threads we get here end up being admiration, reactions, or questions/anxiousness for the episodes and those upcoming ones. Overall, its a pretty nice show, but it doesn't leave a lot to be up in debate about.
>>
>>100224580

No one outside of Japan is part of the market.

Even in Japan it is extremely niche as otaku are looked down upon by everyone.

You honestly think people will buy sexbots in large numbers when they become a thing? Don't make me laugh.

Yeah, the average male on the street -here-. In Japan, 60-70% of men in their 20s-30s nowadays consider themselves "herbivore" men, aka they do not want a girlfriend or to get married. What the fuck do you think all those guys are doing to satisfy sexual urges then? It's not purely just porn, you need more than that to be satisfied, and Japan is figuring out all sorts of interesting ways to do that.

Give it another 20-30 years, and we'll be more like that too. Already we're seeing year-over-year increases in the amounts of single people living by themselves across the US. It's a natural product of the internet imo - it's compartmentalizing people more and more until their online identities bear more meaning than their real ones; people will work and do the mandatory social interactions with work and family but will be basically doing upkeep on their actual bodies just to keep their brains going while they're endlessly entertained with us here on the internet.

Fuck, I really wanted to get into this show and watched a good 20 episodes in a night, but having to catch up is the greatest burden in the world. I loved a lot of what I saw, but it just seems like a long grind to the latest episodes that its dragging me down. Is it worth it? Or should I just read the manga to catch up?
>>
>>100224845
I haven't read the manga but that mightn't be a bad idea. They had this terrible filler (MISUTAH HIBBITO) for a couple minutes at the end of about a dozen episodes. Still I'm satisfied with the show otherwise, especially the sound track and the voice acting.

Only outstanding shows from the new season are WUG and Gin no Saji S2, the rest is mostly watchable, but probably going to drop a few as usual.

>>100225182

You've got some strange taste there anon. Guess there's always got to be someone bucking the trend just from sheer probability. I wouldn't surprise me if there's someone out there who has your entire list flipped upside down in tiers, minus pupa of course.
>>
>>100224845
It is really faithful to the manga, although there is a stretch of episodes where there is obvious padding going on.

If you do decide to watch the anime, I advise you to skip the Hibbit omake at the end of several episodes - they are downright offensive.

Haven't really watched that much and most certainly not enough to rank them like that, so I'll just give my opinions on the few shows I'm watching.
>Kill la Kill
Off to a good start again and I'm still loving it.
>Samurai Flamenco
It just keeps getting better and worse at the same time. I can't not love this show.
>Nobunagun
Dug the first episode and it looks like it could be pretty good.
>Space Dandy
I like it personally. I find it pretty funny, but it's most certainly not Wantanabe's finest. I'm still hoping it'll get better, but if it stays with the really fun visuals and the humor I'll watch it till the end.
