9/10 it's ok.
Timeskip fucked my otp though.
all aboard the drama train
what's this I hear that interview says second cour will have bit more fantastical elements
I love this shit. Best show of 2013.
>doesn't kick him in the balls and shove him away
miuna pulls ahead of the manaka
OTP is Miuna x Hiikun
KanamexTrashcan girl: 1
HikarixHis father: 1
Most popular fanart girl: Manaka
Most popular fanart guy: Hikari
Most popular fanart couple: Chisaki and Tsumugu
Picture of the thread: NagiAsu boys
Oh shit, I forgot to update Manaka art 431.
That's some high standard you got there
Much better without Manaka.
Tsumugu is best guy.
Miuna is best girl after all
I liked it before it was cool.
Same. I even liked Manaka before she became a shit.
Chisaki x Tsumugu OTP
>asks Tsumugu if her tits are as bangin' as back then
>"Dunno, I never saw them back then"
Tsumugu confirmed for pure
So if you jizz on an ocean chick, does her skin absorb it? Are they literally walking cum magnets?
I hope he doesnt come back next episode
As long as he sleeps he doesnt suffer
I watched it for the usual scenery porn in every PA Works anime, but now it's genuinely interesting
Get fucked bitch nigga
How's this similar to Kokoro Connect again?
Should have been Hanasaku Iroha, AnoHana, or other Mari Okada's work. Tari Tari didn't even have romance for God's sake.
Not him but
>Tari Tari didn't even have romance
It's not even remotely similar.
I expected Okada Mari, I got Okada Mari.
Tsumugu is a fucking shit. He doesn't deserve her.
I lost my shit
x likes y, y likes z, z likes some other girl etc
Kaname please go
Is that guy dead?
Yeah, I know but at least expect something like Okada's work.
Go back to sleep Kaname.
Kaname is another shit. The only male characters I like in the series is Hikari and his dad.
Yeah when is he coming back?
He's in the op
I like the mature and protector of smiles Hikari as much as the next guy, but Hikari of old was pretty entertaining.
You must be one angsty weeb
MANAKA IS OLEV
MIUNA IS SHIT
That was actually the first and only time that this show made me laugh.
>Tsumugu decides to dedicate his life to using SCIENCE to figure out what the fuck happened to the underwater village, and carries through with it
>Chisaki decides to become a nursing student, maybe? Pretty much because she wants to take care of Brown Grandpa.
he became a good brown man
Fuck you and your shit tastes.
IF THE NIECE DOESN'T WIN, WE RIOT
I think tsumugu deserves chisaki, and they've lived togther for so longer, why shouldn't she?
>yfw Gramps is the sea god
>not wanting to marry your step-niece
We all know Miuna won't win, though. Brace yourselves for /a/ first glorious shitstorm of 2014.
I would if she hadn't that god awful hair style and obnoxious personality. I absolute hate how she thinks that because she grew older she has somehow the right to pry in other people business.
This is Okada we're talking about. Anything can happen.
Chisaki will win the Hiraki.
Sure. Whatever you say anon.
How is Miuna going to win? I mean, what's she going to tell the family?
>Hi Mom, guess what? I'm going to marry your brother. Isn't that wonderful?
Oh look, it's the faggot with shit tastes again.
Don't mind me. Just posting superior Miuna version
>hair pins falls out
>she now resembles Manaka
>Hikari unconsciously kisses her
Okada kinda relates to shit writing to me, so I'm pretty sure I'll be dissapointed just like I've been continually disspointed by this and every other anime due to HUUUR FORCED DRAMA from the start.
They're not blood related
So its not wrong
>Hikari unconsciously kisses her
Thats actually not considered weird in japan.
Are you saying there's not going to be any awkwardness among the family at all?
>that beta faggot tries to start shit with hikari
>miuna becomes weaponized moe and kicks his ass
Why...She is a delicious mother.
At least she's not a fucking crybaby and drama queen like Manaka
>god awful hair style
get some taste
I'd pry into her business.
With my dick.
So, Sayu will "summon" Kaname just like Miuna Hakari?
Fuck yeah, Hikari
>build up good start
>fuck up ending
Wait, japan is actually rooting for landfag?
I know they have shit taste but come on, that's on a whole nother level
>All this shit taste
It's a great pairing, hard to blame them.
>A great pairing
We both know that Tsumugu has no personality whatsoever.
The only reason he's that bland is so that the loners have it easier to self-insert.
It's not a great pairing, it's forced.
The only reason i can see Chisaki getting together with landfag is her whole "I dislike change" bullshit, because they've been living in the same house for 5 years and she'd believe that she might as well get together with him.
In all honesty, i want Psychopath-kun to return and do some psychopath shit. I'm tired of seeing him suffering.
Tsumugu x Chisaki has been written in stone ever since the timeskip happened. Psycho-kun and that shit about change are mere small obstacles for the OTP to happen.
Oh and that shit about seafags forbidden to love people from the surface Will Chisaki forsake her family and village for Tsumugu?
I'm gonna force my feet into your ass
I miss Hikari's smug face
Everyone is frozen
What he said it is true. It is forced.
How the fuck do they know if Kaname is alive?
We know because he's in the OP, but how can Landfag know? Chisaki saw him getting crushed by a giant pillar, surely she told them.
Manaka is shit. I bet everything's gonna get settled up somehow and then she'll make her appearance, bringing suffering and breaking pairings.
>The only reason i can see Chisaki getting together with landfag is her whole "I dislike change" bullshit
Oh geez, you mean her entire character arc? Fancy that!
It feels natural for me
>Tsumugu x Chisaki has been written in stone ever since the timeskip happened.
I thought it was fairly obvious earlier than that. Kaname's obvious jealousy, Chisaki's character arc and how Tsumugu affected her, Tsumugu actually showing interest on her unlike his treatment of Manaka as a kid.
Manaka and Chisaki switched because it was about they growing out slowly.
Kaname acted too late. There was already seeds of attraction between Tsumugu and Chisaki.
but anything can still happen at that point, the time-skip basically just cemented it.
It's been there since the beginning. Give the first cours a rewatch.
>Kaname acted too late
He never had a chance in the first place
With his attitude his whole life he practically friendzoned himself.
I can already tell that I'm going to hate the ending and all the pairings that come with it.
But i can't drop it, I've come too far to just drop it. I want closure but i don't think i'll be able to accept the closure given. What should i do?
THIS. SO MUCH THIS
>miuna confesses to the hikari
>they're about to lock lips
>I JUST WOKE UP :3
He could have, but he indulged Chisaki's untouched dynamics until after Chisaki was drawn to Tsumugu. I've been rewatching the first cour and the HikarixManaka and ChisakixTsumugu have pretty obvious set ups as grow up-love from hardship which contrast the love struck infatuation and Chisaki's projecting her fears and insecurities to latch on Hikari. I'm sure Manaka and Chisaki considered Tsumugu and Hikari attractive, but there was no gain with a relationship with them. It would just indulge childish stunned growth.
Pairs are set in a stone on OP's picture. Better start dealing with it because whinny shits like you are annoying.
Oh god so help me if Manaka ruins it
Fuck, I missed aqua terrarium. The new ED is luck luster compared to it.
I don't know what I'd do.
>Anything can happen
>Mikono is set up to be the winner from the start
>Zessica clearly does a better job of wooing Amata
>Doesn't matter, he saw Mikono first
>Also Zessica wasn't pretty until she copied Mikono's fashion sense
>Zessica almost dies
>Amata barely acknowledges her when she comes back
Really now. If it's Okada, you can be damn certain whatever she gives us is absolute bollocks.
Miuna will realize she feels family love for Hikari.
So Chisaki ends up having a threeway with Sayu and Kaname and Tsumugu ends up alone? I can live with that
> And look, I'm pregnant!
Things you don't know:
Mikono is Kawamori's waifu
Kawamori isn't here.
Jokes aside, you know how it's gonna happen.
You do realize Kawamori was also aboard?
Don't be silly anon. Miuna will birth the new generation with Uroko.
notto dis shitto again
No more slowly transition to
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRtFX_MilPo as the episode ends.
>The seagod is the father and through some ena bullshit, it's also yours
Yeah i know it is.
I'll just have to suck it up, move on and accept the fact that Kaname is forever going to suffer while Mr.No-personality-whatsoever will end up happy.
Okada was basically the only one who wanted to let Zessica wins in the staff of Evol.
You can't deny it. Unless it hurts your dolicon feelings.
>Okada was basically the only one who wanted to let Zessica wins in the staff of Evol
No, she decided against it because "It wasn't refreshing."
That's Kawamori who decided that
Miuna has to repay Manaka the favor. She'll exchange herself. When Manaka comes to surface, the winter passed thanks to Miuna's womb.
OP 2 > OP1
ED 1 > ED2
It was Okada. I translated that interview. She only briefly considered a full Zessica route but ditched it saying SHE wanted Zessica to be a tryhard who accomplishes nothing.
Kawamori never even mentioned Zessica. She was a secondary character to him. He only ever spoke of Amata, Kagura, Mikono, Apollonius and Mykage. Briefly of Yunoha and Jin because were popular.
>ED 1 > ED2
>OP 2 > OP1
I like the melancholic feel in the second OP. The first OP though great visuals just sounds so auto-tuned to me
>I translated that interview
My god, someone else who was in the Aquarion EVOL threads? I feel like I just reconnected with someone from elementary school.
The new one is just really bland, I know it reflects the melancholy of the show now that it's gone down the path it has but the first one was a lot more enjoyable.
You're not alone
Well If we're talking about the song itself, sure the first one I can really listen to, but the OP as a whole? The second OP intro is just so powerful and emotional, I already prefer it than the first one the moment I saw it.
Agreed, the second OP fits the atmosphere of timeskip more
can't wait till she sluts it up for hikari now that she craves sea dick again
But it's wrong for a 19 yr ol to crave for 14 yr old cock.
Come on, it's exactly alright. Vice versa is even better, though.
Its ok if the girl is older
And you can't confirm.
>Kaname is forever going to suffer
Why? He has Sayu to annoy
When Manaka returns it will be near end of series.
Kaname pls return
That face is so creepy. I don't want him back.
Thursday can't come soon enough.
Why is Manaka so popular? In terms of art, focus, and most likely gonna be the girl for Hikari. When she is the most useless indecisive bitch and is the one of the main reason the show got better was when she was gone.
>Why is Manaka so popular?
Because people like characters like her. Was that so hard to get?
she's a sex
So, the time skip is just a plot contrivance to further complicate love interests?
But we get older Miuna so its worth it
i also think this just complicates things but they might make something good out of it, i dont know.
i sure hope they dont fuck this series up because so far im really liking it
>Why is Manaka so popular?
Bitches usually are. (See: Wake Up, Girls!)
All these horriblesubs caps. Get some patience some of you, please. Is it really worth watching an average encode with unrefined subs just so you can hightail it to the threads once the episode ends?
2 days worth of discussion.
For such an interesting world that has been created, there's not much being done with it. It's pretty bad when the very first things to be written after the hibernation are more complicated love ordeals. There's a lot of potential to be had in creating intrigue with the way Shioshishio came into being, but it's being squandered in the pursuit of melodramatic love stories that are not that original.
>with the way Shioshishio came into being
God of the sea fucked a human and his children built the city, kept like that thanks to MAGIC.
i dont really have a huge problem with the love stories and stuff in general since nagi no asukara kind of is a romnace-dramaish series but i definitely understand what you're going at. i think they could have thought up something better because to me this whole time-stop thing feels as if they only put it there to further complicate the love story. oh well
Who will wake up next?
well in the intro you can see manaka naked laying on the ice so my guess would be her
The town's priest or whatever he is (the white haired magic user) should have been given more character. The only characters that are being developed so far (and we're halfway through at this point) are the main cast. I don't expect the same level of development, obviously. What's very disappointing, though, is that he seems like he'd have a more important role. His character is only there to be a device that further complicates the love interests by placing thinly veiled restrictions on their interaction with each other. My point is, there's a lot that could probably be done with his character and Shioshishio in general, given that the entire story didn't revolve around kiddie romance. Life is filled with many things other than love problems, and the only thing that resembles a branching point from this is the conflict between the two societies. And yet even though this is always there, it's never fully developed. The only time it becomes relevant is when it comes between the characters' love for each other.
Basically, the time skip is like a bad resemblance to a plot element of a character leaving for years, then coming back home only to discover the person they once felt nothing for, now is old enough to be of dating age and looks attractive.
well i dont really like it
She looks so much better as an okaa-san than when she was just onee-san.
