/a/, why did this happen?
>>
>>100273255
It was cold as fuck and he was naked. Frostbite is not a joke.
>>
>>100273255
The suffering is only beginning. I can't wait for delicious Purple and Miuna tears.
>>
There's NTR in it?

Picked the fuck up.
>>
>>100274071
It's NTR by /a/'s standards, which is to say there is more than one male in a romance drama.

Perfect. I judged the book by the cover... won't do the same mistake now.

I feel some high class suffering that you rarely see in anime. Based Okada.

What do you feel regarding the response to "Nagi no Asukara"'s first cour?
Chief Producer Umezawa Atsushi: Most of them said things such as "We're worried of the direction the story is heading", "The viewers feelings shake along with the story". I felt that the response is great.

Some of the characters that has grown has the same age as the characters in the first cour. Will there be any big changes to their relationships?
Umezawa: Even for the characters who experienced the same timeline, slight differences to their experience would make them feel a big difference. The relationships will change substantially from the 1st cour, please pay attention on each of their stories.

In the first cour, there are an abundance of tearjerking scenes, could we also expect that for the second cour?
Umezawa: It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that the second cour would be the drama "Nagiasu" actually wanted to express. Please look forward to it!

I'm profoundly sweating.
>>
>>100275427
I want Tsumugu to man up and bury his landfag dick into that fat fishy ass.
>>
>>100275340
This work is a fantasy, story of youth and literature at the same time, have you thought of what genre does this fall into? Are you willing to label a genre on it?
Umezawa: If you take the first cour, I would say it's a "story about youth". However when combined with the second cour, "fairy tale" would be a more accurate depiction.

Please tell me who is your favorite character and why.
Umezawa: It's Miuna. My strike zone is personally low, I don't want her to grow anymore (Haha).

Everyone will end up happy right. (Please m--m)
Umezawa: In terms of their "growth" as a person, each of them will get a suitable ending. So please don't worry.

Sounds like a real dollicon
>>
>>100273509
I will seriously cry myself to sleep the night when miuna gets her heart broken
>>
Miuna is still irrelevant tier for me. I'm upset the newest episode wasted so much time showing her irrelevant cock lust for Hikari.

Second interview with another guy

What do you feel regarding the response to "Nagi no Asukara"'s first cour?
Chief Producer Ogura Mitsutoshi: I strongly feel that the charm of the characters increase along with the number of episodes. It is a fresh and thrilling experience being able to create a drama through straightforward emotions.

Some of the characters that has grown has the same age as the characters in the first cour. Will there be any big changes to their relationships?
Ogura: When those who has spent time without the knowledge of others, and those who only spent time together are reunited, which one of them would feel "left out"...
Please take note of each of their emotional development.

In the first cour, there are an abundance of tearjerking scenes, could we also expect that for the second cour?
Ogura: Please look forward to it by all means. This is a story that shakes your heart, I cried many times during the scenario stage already.

Kaname confirmed for unlimited suffering.
>>
>>100276406
I feel bad everyone keeps disregarding the guy.
>>
Any moonspeakers have insights into why 要 read as Kaname is listed as a female given name in Denshi Jisho?
>>
>>100276703
Because being Kaname is suffering.
>>
>>100276703
Probably because that character has the kanji for woman ( 女 ) in it.
>>
How does it feel knowing Miuna is going to lose
>>
>>100275340
>>100275608
>Umezawa: It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that the second cour would be the drama "Nagiasu" actually wanted to express. Please look forward to it!

>Umezawa: In terms of their "growth" as a person, each of them will get a suitable ending. So please don't worry.

Suffering.
>>
>>100276879
I meant why in the sense of why would someone give a boy a girls' name? So is 要 really a girl's name and Kaname has sadists for parents (as >>100276762 says), or is it really gender-neutral and Denshi Jisho is wrong?
>>
>>100276990
I do not know, but you might be on to something such that he might have had parents who wanted a girl instead.
>>
>>100276951
In my heart, she had already won. Until she grew up.
>>
This work is a fantasy, story of youth and literature at the same time, have you thought of what genre does this fall into? Are you willing to label a genre on it?
Ogura: I think it's a fairy tale. The sight of unexpected cruelness, or the clash of sincere feelings, but nevertheless miraculously accomplishing something is extremely befitting of a fairy tale.

Please tell me who is your favorite character and why.
Ogura: It's Chisaki. While she may seem calm, she actually has the richest and most delicate emotions. I think she has amazing character depth with the way she suppresses her own feelings in order to not hurt other's feelings, which is very brave but yet unsteady. By the way, I love her even more after her growth (Haha).

Everyone will end up happy right. (Please m--m)
Ogura: To achieve that, whether it's Hikari, Miuna or Chisaki, all of them would show their troubles, hardwork and effort. Please make sure you watch till the very end.
>>
>>100277049
What if Kaname really is a girl and Chisaki has been ignoring him because SHE KNOWS.
>>
>>100276990
It's just Okada. Hikari is a female name too.
>>
There was no doubt this was gonna be one of Okada's rides of suffering but those interviews just emphasize it even more.

Nevertheless, this has gotta be one of my favourite anime so far.
>>
>>100276762
>>
>>100277141
Does this mean... Hikari is A GIRL TOO?!
>>
I'm sad I didn't follow through after picking this up day one. The threads must have been fun, but I can't wait for the latter threads. Timeskip happening is going to be a wild ride.
>>
There is no fucking NTR, why do people keep saying this?
>>
>>100277497
The threads were low-key but enjoyable early on, until the end of the first cour when they became a blast. Should be an entertaining ride watching it with /a/ the rest of the way, especially now that the fanbase is growing.
>>
>>100277398
No.
>>
>>100277605
See
>>100274211
>>
>>100277605
It isn't NTR, but it incites posting?
>>
>>100277094
Kaname is butthurt feeling left out, and Chisaki suppresses her slutty urges to fuck Tsumugu

Sounds about right
>>
I dunno I have a hard time feeling sad about any of the tragic events because of all the MAGIC going on.

Same reason Clannad felt dull as hell to me.
>>
>>100277605
Either they mistake NTR for drama or they want to believe there is NTR.
>>
>>100277865
Clannad's problem is that it's using magic to create rainbow and sunshine out of nowhere. This is the exact opposite, the magic causes suffering.
>>
>>100277605
It's a buzzword that's been overused so much it means nothing
>>
>>100277865
Except here, the supernatural elements have been there since day one. It's a show featuring underwater people and sea deities; it never pretended to be too realistic. The term "fairy tale" is used in pretty much every interview, so >MAGIC is kind of a given.
>>
>>100277605
It's /a/'s favourite word to use in any show that has romance.
>>
>>100278150
correction: SUFFERING romance
>>
>>100275340
>Most of them said things such as "We're worried of the direction the story is heading", "The viewers feelings shake along with the story". I felt that the response is great.

No no, he said.

>"Their tears were delicious."
>>
>>100277605
Those people are mistaking love polygons for NTR. Every character likes someone but no characters like each other except for Chisaki and Tsumugu. The closest to NTR there is is Tsumugu thinking she still likes Hikari.
>>
>>100278608
where was it proven that tsumugu likes chisaki?

and I understand the belief that chisaki likes tsumugu but it seems just as possible that it was never there
>>
>>100278704
Tsumugu obviously have feelings for Chisaki after the timeskip. If you can't see this you're either blind as fuck or just ignorant.
>>
>>100278704
You watch enough anime you can see the signs. They make it so obvious.
>>
>>100278805
i think the feelings are more along the lines of a sister

I mean he's had 5 years to try anything with her, the only reason I can see them getting together is because they're the same age

then again this is all my opinion. I might actually be ignorant/blind
>>
>>100278875
He's not trying anything with her because he knows she still loves Hikari.
>>
>>100278875
When the teacher asked him about her as a romantic interest, Tsumugu responds that "she loves someone else," not that she's like a sister. Then it pauses on his face for a few moments before changing scenes. Read between the lines a little.
>>
>>100278968
ok you win I'm blind as fuck

I lost focus on that scene so ill probably have to rewatch it
>>
>>100278943

IT'S TIME
>>
>>100279410
She got pretty hot 5 years later

too bad she won't win even though timeskip and her crush matching her age makes it the perfect pairing
>>
>>100279551

Manaka isn't coming back in time for a romantic pairing, if at all.

Chisaki is much older, and her feelings towards Hikari were just a crush anyways.

Who else deserves to be on Hikari's fishboat? That's right, Miuna.
>>
>>100279551
>>100279631

It's impossible. She fell in love with Oniichan Hikari. Give up on this strange pairing
>>
>>100279099
>Chose to study the ocean and villages just to find a way to bring them back
I don't get why people hate him after the timeskip. Sure, he needs to show some more emotion but he's such a fucking bro.
>>
>>100279852

Impossible? Strange pairing? Where do you think you're posting?
>>
>>100279900
He was always a bro. He fucking made them a pond during their first week in school.
>>
>>100279631
Manaka will come back and win in the final episode even though she's been ravaged by fish god cock for the past five years straight
>>
>>100275608
>Umezawa: It's Miuna. My strike zone is personally low, I don't want her to grow anymore (Haha).
>>
>>100279852
why do you deny her love anon? is it too painful? don't worry we are here to comfort you when miuna's warm salty tears melt the oceans and ironically free manaka from her frozen tomb and slip n slip into hii chan stinky dick.
>>
>>100273255
God, you can just see how broken he is. Poor Hikari ;_;
>>
>>100279910
lol that tsumubro saying "does that even work for sea people"
>>
>>100280014

>Miuna_has_no_water_and_has_to_USE_THAT.jpg
>>
>>100280060
He was jelly, he wanted to press his hips on hikari first.
>>
>>100273255
just one question : will there be glop?
>>
>>100279900
Who hated him even before the timeskip? Before we new his character, it was a little unsettling that Manaka liked him when we knew Hikari's feelings, but since then he's been nothing short of a bro.
>>
>>100280014
>>100280076

Japan, we better get some water sport doujins.
>>
>>100279940
Yeah, I remembered that after I posted. I'm going to go through the episodes and write down every good thing he's done when the anime is closer to being finished.
>>
>>100280103

>%250 more glopping
>>
I really like Hikari. I don't know why, he's just your average MC but for some reason I really like him.
>>
>>100280107
There was a thread earlier where one or two people were shitting on him and they told me to get taste when I called them faggots.
>>
>>100280164
>>
>>100280103
A whole timeskip worth of semen
