So what's /a/'s take on Strike the Blood? I never see anybody talk about it here.
I feel like I should hate it because it's pandering drivel but somehow I can't fucking get enough of it.
Every girl is best girl. Especially Natsuki-sensei, best legal loli ever. Fuck, dat voice.
Despite not being particularly substanceful the LN is probably one of the best-written LNs I've ever read.
Pretty much everything you said. By all rights it is incredibly generic, but it's really well-executed, which is likely its biggest saving grace.
As the other anon said. It's generic as fuck. But it saves itself having a lot of best girl material plus a well executed generic story. It's quite fun and the animation is not bad. Try if you want. It'll not change your life, but you'll have something pleasurable to watch friday night.
We have one every week. Just wait for live stream thread. Kinda rushed, especially battle part, but well executed, Akatsuki is fun and the girls are great.
>I never see anybody talk about it here.
Look around on Fridays and you'll see huge threads talking about how Natsuki-chan is the best girl.
We can only dream about the scene where gets butt gets groped.
There is threads every Friday for it and some times Saturday.
It's really really generic but its so godamn great with all the characters, All the females are great but no one comes close to Himeragi. I'm really enjoying it.
>natsuki chan best girl
>not bodyswaping tomboyish witch
>Every girl is best girl. Especially Natsuki-sensei, best legal loli ever. Fuck, dat voice.
God damn, this. Pretty much agreed with everything you said. I like love all the girls, and the story is interesting enough to keep me watching for something other than cute girls.
She was a bitch, though. Wasn't even hot.
Imouto and angel are the less interesting girls tough.
I'll have to come back on Friday then. I'm usually up to other stuff so I've missed the threads I guess but it's avoidable stuff.
Himeragi's pretty good too, but so are all of the other girls. (Aside from the sister, and Kanase doesn't really do much for me either.)
It didn't take itself seriously and at the same time it didn't try to blow itself off as a joke. Really nice approach and the execution shows it.
Oh yeah, are the LNs translated? Or does the first anon read fluent moon?
This is the second time I've seen someone use that. It's stupid.
>All the females are great but no one comes close to Himeragi.
Actually agreeing with Lelouch -- wow. This anime's pretty generic, yeah, but I think it'd good at what it does. Compare this to something like Magical Warfare which is generic as fuck and fails at it, StB is generic but still really enjoyable.
Plus that Himaragi, tho.
Yeah, I saw it in a thread earlier today. Such a retarded thing to say.
Magical warfare was like:
>hi, generic shit
>more generic shit in your face
>I'm a cute girl, but I'm stupid
>you're a witch harry
>next episode, magical highschool
I just used it because I don't know a better term. Is there one for "looks like a loli but is an adult"?
>you're a witch harry
Heh, well said. This was pretty much the entire episode. I still don't know why those guys were chasing them either. They have some explaining to do in the next episode. Hopefully they can turn things around or I'll be dropping this.
Mui, or what ever her name was, was cute at least.
Yeah so far she's the only reason I'd watch the show. I'll probably watch it on those days when I watch stuff that's actually good and then feel like watching more anime and it's right there on CR.
La Foila and Natsuki-chan are the best.
>and it's right there on CR.
compared to the stuff airing this season, StB suddenly feels a lot better
It was terribly, terribly executed. I think i was at fault too for being hyped for it. I guess you shouldn't compare your wild imagination about what you read with its adaptation.
I've learned to have no expectations what so ever; it's made a lot of adaptations a lot less disappointing.
There was actually someone looking forward to Mahou Sensou? Just about everything pre-air screamed "do not watch"
When will headphones be let into the harem?
>There was actually someone looking forward to Mahou Sensou?
I always waiting for every LN adaptation, especially harem. There are some disappointment like Mahou sensou, Itsuka tenma or Hidan no Aria, but i pretty much like the rest.
Meanwhile Onee-chan ga kite should be a masterpiece, but it's 3min long.
It's a 3 minute long masterpiece
Goddamnit the wait is killing me.
It was way, way 2chuuni4me.
this isn't the Nobunagun thread
I only watch it because I'm too autistic to drop anime.
I know how you feel. I only drop the things I can't stand for in the frist episode.
Are you fucking stupid?
But it is. "Normal" high school MC, suddenly magic powers, edgy consequences of using said powers, magic circles, demon eyes, swords and shit.
Come fucking on.
>sudenly magic powers
You know, that's pretty much what happens if you're turned into a vampire.
If you are talking about LN, just 1 more week.
If you are talking about anime, don't be so hyped.
Do you know what does chuuni mean?
What, he's also a vampire now.
Yes. This show is basically chuu2 delusion the animation.
No it isn't, you retard. They are not delusion as they actually have fucking powers. You don't know what chuuni means; stop using that word.
You mean show where characters have powers are chuuni?
All that stuff is in the background. It's a harem.
>using buzzwords without understanding their meaning
I think he mean the people who watch it.
He's a vampire since the begining of the show.
Then he's even more retarded
>All that stuff is in the background. It's a harem.
I think people often forget this.
Oh shit, wrong show.
black horse of the season
If you were talking about Magic Warfare, and I hope so. I partialy agreed with you.
Even that's not really chuuni, though. I mean, it's shit, but it's not chuuni.
That's why I said partially.
Actually anon is right. Chuuni is commonly used to refer to shows that are full of the kinds of elements that people suffering from chuunibyou like. I didn't realize it was used that way either until was actually watching anime with a friend that came to visit from Osaka and he kept laughing and saying "so chuuni!" about certain shows.
It's like how the shows Kuroneko watches are Chu2, even though inside their fictional context the powers are real.
Say what you will, but shit like that is exactly what CR is good for. It lets you watch mid-tier shows that aren't worth torrenting or archiving with almost zero effort.
Dropped it in rage at "it was only a greeting!". Girls might be good but the show sure as hell can't handle them. Didn't like the techno angel arc anyway, even Tokyo Ravens which started weaker with bullshit grimderp and annoying love drama actually managed to get better than this.
How about you minimize your media player and let the files run while you browse /a/. Whenever Himeragi talks, pause for a moment to masturbate.
This way, you don't have to give the show you full time or attention, but you can still extract significant enjoyment from it.
Don't you mean Natsuki?
Fuck, who am I kidding, Himeragi is god tier too. Every time a cliche misunderstanding moment happens and then Himeragi backs down and actually gives Akatsuki the benefit of the doubt I fall in love with her again.
