Does this look like the face of mercy?
Toaru Hikuushi thread.
I love scenes like this.
I don't have a lot to say and Ive been drinking tonight. This show makes me feel nice inside. I can only hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.
Oh, and Nina Viento a shit.
Please help me shop the sister so she'd look like she's only wearing bed sheets or something.
I will but for very different reasons.
Worrying intensifies X 2
Worrying intensifies X3.
I've been considering giving this series a watch - could someone tell me what it is and if it's worth it. haven't seen any real discussion on it
Can I just have the plane instead?
Do you enjoy romance and adventure? Or do you enjoy rage & suffering?
If you like either, you'll like this.
A prince is kicked out of his kingdom because of a revolution. He unknowingly falls in love with the girl that represents that revolution. Suffering ensues.
Pretty run of the mill high school bullshit so far, except for the coup
I'm here for the dogfighting. Princess and the Pilot was great, but after seeing this show's character design, I almost lost all interest
It's about some ex-prince who joins an academy with his fake sister to learn how to become a pilot so he can seek revenge on the person who he thinks caused the death of his parents (the previous king and queen) in an uprising. He also wants to fuck some girl.
I'm not too crazy about the rage stuff. does he have to hide his identity? with dire consequences if revealed?
it reminds me of Code Geass but with planes instead of mechs.
also how many episodes until Ignacios stops being a faggot and does something other than glare at people
Yes, he have to hide his identity.
If they find out who he is, they'll kill him. Some edgy poor kid knows it's him, I wonder what'll happen.
I want to make Claire, orgasm.
One for Nina, one for Himself?
im watching this show simply because it has an actual indication of romance, i can't take anymore harem settings.
So does Kalel actually have hate sex with Claire or not?
I think he strangles her.
I hope other pilot series will also get animated
>Nina Viento has magic powers
>Kal is actually a beta piece of shit and can't pilot
No, two for Nina.
>digs a rich chick
>some noble faggot tries to get in his way
>karl insults his family name and tells him to fuck off, gets the girl
>"beta piece a shit"
i think you mean alpha as fuck good sir
All that QUALITY
Nanako's face seeing a Balsteros man in all his glory.
Despite how well kal-el & aoi yuuki go together, these two are just so cute together.
I sound like a faggot, don't i.
>the chick can shoot and fly better than him.
Karl's all about hand to hand, all hand to throat more accurately.
Claire is bland. Imouto no kuseni is cuter.
>shooting and flying better = being alpha
>being bad at anything
Also your reaction image is shit.
Look at this kid, being all happy and stuff. It would be a shame if any series of events were to ruin that.
He look so damn happy, I want to poke him.
The monarch is a piece of shit monarch or loved by the people? From the carriage scene, it looked like the people dislike the monarch, this will be explained later?
So, if Karl did his revenge research properly, would he have crashed the plane on his first flight?
Do you think he's making an overly elaborate plan to infiltrate the noble area and shoot Nina?
Karl was going to ram it, but imouto brought him back.
It will likely be expanded in further episodes. All we've seen so far is the limited memories of a single character so there's bound to be more going on from various other perspectives.
>Have a childhood dream of being a pilot
>Devote your life for muh revenge
>Grow up and be shit at piloting
>Also be shit at revenge
Creative insult. 10/10
He becomes a good pilot and his revenge is just beginning. Suffocating really.
Will he Viento her Nina?
>No screen time except angry faces
>Not even good at piloting
>Literally no lines spoken except for the preview
Jesus fuck, is this faggot going to do anything important? I'm already disappointed he got paired up with best girl.
So does anyone know why Nina goes albino? Does she just wear a wig or something or is it handwaved as magic?
Viento, her Nina?
Does anyone else get Allison & Lillia vibes from this? This is obviously not as light-hearted but something definitely reminds me of A&L.
Who is ready for Superman to forgive Nina viento?
Sure, he'll forgive her after she's dead.
Claire's worrying intensifies.
Remind of the strip where a guy join a paladin order to get revenge, but then years later when he meet the killer, he's all understanding.
>can't hide or control his anger in public
>has massive ego unfitting of his current standing: no stature, no empire, not even fighting ability
>wasting his time on trivial school life and romance instead of focusing on REVENGE
He is just fantasizing about revenge without doing anything to exact it.
I'd say he's pretty beta.
I keep remembering Seve whenever I hear Ballesteros.
Except for the last line, sounds exactly like fake L-Elf. Is he going to end up being one of those "you're just like me" characters?
He can fly,just the blonde fag tricked his plane(before start training) so he don't trust meter at that moment,but seems anime skipped that
Claire is olev.
Also the fact that if he's beta he won't do that crazy thing in ending
I'm actually quite disappointed.
Spoilerfag said he actually witnessed his mother's execution.
Claire gets kidnapped and raped by pirates at and the LN ends ambiguously with Karl throwing together a team to go and rescue her.
This anime won't have a conclusive ending, nor will it resemble a happy one.
Never take everything a spoilerfag says word for word.
Some stick bullshit in there to stir up conversation.
Now you made me disappointed too.
Anyone else feels like you want to hate Claire? I dont know why but it seems that i want to hate her for no reason, apart from she being NINA VIENTO!
What I don't get is why they don't try and capture him and marry him off somehow to give their government legitimacy.
The Duke guy who's taken Claire under his wing is a douchebag, right?
They don't even kiss before the LN finishes.
Yes, because Aoi Yuuki.
Because they're the Evil Revolution. This episode did nothing to paint them as the good guys, which is pretty fucking unusual for something where the MC is expected to ultimately forgive them.
You don't have to be a good guy to marry off the MC, they should have indoctrinated him and set him up as a puppet.
Why would they start the series out with such heavily implied romance if it amounts to nothing on top of the love interest getting raped?
Did the author deliberately try to create rage material?
The rape part is trolling, but the rest is accurate.
Author just likes his open endings.
Karl doesn't forgive the revolutionaries, just Claire, with his hands.
That's what they would do if they were smart. These guys clearly aren't, or they would have never murdered the royal family in the first place.
>Because pirates wouldn't rape a captured nubile young woman
Oh right, these are gentleman pirates who dab at their mouths with napkins while eating.
Why is that? because Shiki?Im guessing that since her other characters seem all right . I havent watch that yet.
What did they fuck up by murdering the royal family?
She would just kill them with her wind powers
Oh man, I just want to ejaculate all over her face.
>The rape part is trolling, but the rest is accurate.
Glad to hear it
I can appreciate open endings, but that doesn't sound like an ending, it sounds like a climax without any resolution. Did Kal fail and die? Did they murder Claire?
If they don't say anything explicit I would prefer to think that she's untouched, despite how absurd it might seem. ;_;
You never murder the royal family if you want a successful revolution. Other governments won't trust you, you piss of the rest of the nobility (who still has money, connections, and political clout), and you invariably create the perfect opportunity for some long-lost heir to come back and stage a counter-revolution. He'll succeed, because yours inevitably turns to utter shit after you just massacred the last group of people who had any semblance of an understanding in how to run the damn place.
calling it now.
She needs certain equipment and conditions to use her Captain Planet powers.
Maybe we'll get a different ending.
Strangling is the best way to show love and affection.
Why would Claire have wind powers? Setting aside it's bizarre, wouldn't that sort of thing be more associated with the royal family?
They stay as just siblings right? I like their relationship, and it'll only be ruined if it ends up being some about her actually being in love with him. Especially since it's obvious she'll lose.
From the ashes, came Superman Dumbledore.
I dunno, I'm not sure if I would call the French Revolution successful, bit it was certainly conclusive.
Albeit in an extremely bloody way.
*but it was
Peace, love, and understanding?
>voiced by Aya Taketatsu
What do you think is going to happen?
I am assuming that you've never heard of the French Revolution.
No, like animating a final battle or something. From what I heard it was more like the LNs were cancelled.
An anime original? Maybe,
It would sure as hell be better than ending on something as climatic as rescuing the love interest from pirates, especially when the MC in question hasn't even kissed the love interest.
>it was more like the LNs were cancelled
Have you seen his other books? They all ended that way.
Why in the world would someone bother to adapt a cancelled LN series?
The French revolution is a perfect example of what I'm talking about: The "Revolutionaries" lost big time while accomplishing jack shit. The only reason France remained relevant afterwards is because you had another minor noble step in and take over - one who would have ultimately restored the monarchy if he hadn't been too ambitious for his own good.
>They make an anime about an LN series that didn't even sell well
Is this true?
I think it something like poor sales. Whatever, it's probably bullshit like half the spoilers that have been floating around. As an apology, have a Claire.
>what is Shinsekai Yori
Why does she voice so many imoutos
I WANT TO RAPE HER SO BAD
THIS FACE WAS MADE FOR RAPE
For starters, watch the author's Toaru Hikuushi e no Tsuioku. It pretty much ended without explaining shit.
SSY isn't a LN and it wasn't cancelled.
My point about the french revolution though is that there was no monarchy re-established, and the nobility got wiped the fuck out.
I'm still pissed that they beheaded Lavoisier, who separated chemistry from fucking alchemy. Not to mention the guy supported the revolution in its origins.
>The 2 darkness kids aren't genius/talented/special.
Good job, author.
You can even see a part of the pirate scene in the OP, /a/non.
Unless they make an anime original that's how it's going to end.
Not this time, no.
B-but she's the flight partner of this faggot. Surely the author could just go with that instead of having her suffer when her otouto chooses Claire?
>You will never be a retarded kid who, in attempting to avenge your brutally murdered parents, end up falling in love with the figurehead of the revolution that had them killed.
At least they never kiss, and pirates kidnap her in the end.
KAZE GA SHITTERUUU
Really? Where in the OP?
The ed feels so tragic.
I'm still hoping for an anime-original ending that goes full suffering.
Love is dead.
It's two fucking minutes long mate, and there's like only two scenes of conflict where the scene isn't too ambiguous to assume it's conflict from elsewhere in the story. Which one do you think it is?
>I'm still hoping for an anime-original ending that goes full suffering.
They'd have to call in an expert for that.
Oh, you meant the first episode. No way is the actual OP two minutes long when most are one and a half minutes.
Never mind, I'm an idiot.
>CRAWLINGGGGGGGGGGG INNN MY SKINNNNNNNNNNNNNN
Agreed. I think I would prefer the show to go full tragic than for it to end in a cliffhanger which you know would never be continued.
I get those vibes as well. I liked A&L so I'm hoping this'll be something I like as well.
Just finished the episode, any request for gifs, stitch, or transparent?
I hope he get better soon, all he do is brood and eat bread. Every fucking episode, brood, eat bread, back to brooding, and repeat.
So is she actually the descendent of some monarchy deposed 100 years prior by Karl's ancestors? Or is she just a girl they found and dressed up?
Also, was Karl's family a bunch of dicks?
Probably. Or else they wouldn't be getting that much hate in the first place. Or maybe, the revolutionists just tricked the brain-dead people with propaganda and staged a revolution for the lulz.
lol totally agree with that. As for now, you just couldn't help but see Angsty Mc'Angst as a mere comic relief character...
I'm not sure, I'm not even sure what the purpose of the revolution was, it seem to be religious in nature with their leader being the high priestess, but all they do is reform the goverment into a republic and depose the monarch.
And as for Karl's family, they must be doing something wrong, when they riding into town Karl did they say that the stares they get from the people were cold.
Initially successful but failed in the end.
>you will never have a strong but gentle older brother whom you call "Aniki"
What's /a/'s general consensus on how this series is as a whole? Without spoilers of course. I am really hoping this will be good, but ratings of the LN don't look that great? Should I not hope for much?
All I will say is don't be fooled by how good the first episode is (it is excellent).
It's not a bad show if you have no expectations.
The beginning is good, but if the LN is any indication the series goes to shit with a bad end that leaves you angsty and hanging.
I wouldn't recommend you pick up the show unless you don't mind a little rage.
Rage inducing in what way? And the LN ended with a bad end? I've already seen the three eps so far, and I think I'm liking it, but I feel like I'm being fooled because the ratings of the LN are quite low.
From the Japanese wiki page it's an open ending
Most people are saying that because it's an open ending it will be shit
I don't like them because it typically shows author's inability to write a conclusive satisfying ending. To me it is a cop out.
The LN series ends with
Claire being kidnapped by pirates and Karl forming a group to go after her, that's seriously the ending. There is no conclusion. They don't even kiss.
It's up in the air whether she's raped or not, depends on how realistic the author wants the series to be given its setting/
I'll be one of the people who has hopes for it I guess. It can't be THAT bad right?
I want to see Nina's blood so bad.
Holy shit, I love how the suffering intensified in this ep. I really want to see now where this is going, next monday can't come soon enough.
I really hope he'll make that bitch Claire/Nina Viento suffer, tho I feel bad for him for falling in love with the person who wants dead the most.
Up to you. You can always just ignore the ending and go with your head canon
>First episode dogfight
>Bad guys use planes that appear based off messerschimit ww2 fighters
>good guys using something an engineer created while intoxicated
>non-aerodynamic bulky design
>no retractable landing gear
>somehow outmanuevers nimble enemy fighters
Thrust vectoring owns the sky
Brown girl with ponytail is best girl
Claire is second
the props are way too small for vertical lift and especially not outta the water
How do the pilot or gunner not fall out of the plane when they flip upside down?
Magnets in their pants and seats.
So does he abandon his goal to get revenge after finding out Claire is Nina Viento?
We don't know what material the craft is made of or the physical environment. They may not even be human sized.
The world has it's share of magic and magical technology, enough to make tilt-wings feasible.
Probably some noble was wanting muh revenge for some reason and employed wind magic.
They only won because of NINA VIENTO.
>bad guys using cool planes
>good guys using retarded pieces of shit
What if they just continue the story from there?
That doesn't even sound like an open ending, more like the author just lost intererst in the middle of the story or the LN getting axed. How is that supposed to be an ending?
>and the suffering dial inches toward 11
Fuuuuuck I can't take it anymore. I'm predicting the secrets will start coming out next episode and the bone-deep hatred will erupt.
>dat kid version of Karl's screaming Nina Viento
>all my goosebumps
>could feel the hatred like waves of heat
I know man. They did a really great job with that scene. His malice was palpable.
>mfw Nina Viento
Not to mention OP's pic. An understated moment that speaks volumes about Karl's feelings.
coming late 2014
ace combat 4, shattered skies, the anime.
What's everyone thinking?
That they will never be Kal-el
>Go after her, you faggot
These guys sure love shipping Superman and Claire together.
It's nice that there's a balance number of people for everyone to find someone and be happy with.
I hope there will be a ton of people dying.
So how many of those will actually survive?
Any romantic pairings that were possible, will not happen.
Baby Kal is such a cutie. I want to smother him.
They really want to prepare us for what's to come, don't they.
Crying, always a good sign.
Nothing wrong with men crying faggot.
I think the fact that he looks like the cool, competent type of character but he's actually worthless is hilarious.
>So is she actually the descendent of some monarchy deposed 100 years prior by Karl's ancestors? Or is she just a girl they found and dressed up?
I'm kinda hoping he's permanent surveillance on Karl. In the flashback he was one of the commoners.
You can't protect that smile
Who are you talking about?
>I'm not sure, I'm not even sure what the purpose of the revolution was, it seem to be religious in nature with their leader being the high priestess, but all they do is reform the goverment into a republic and depose the monarch.
Nina Viento could just be a puppet, though. She seems pretty lifeless.
She's the life of the revolution. Shit gets real, when Karl finds out.
Love goes on the back burner.
>My point about the french revolution though is that there was no monarchy re-established,
They got a dictator who became an Emperor within two decades of the revolution.
I'm sure she's just a puppet, she's just a child at that time afterall, beside it was pretty clear that the rebelling noble was just using her as weapon.
don't care. Hope Karl kills her
>I want to smother him.
So did the republicans.
Looks too big or same as current size,she is immortal or something?
Love the windows in her dress on her hips.
Wow she's pretty stacked.
That's from the farewell ceremony in the 1st ep.
She has grown.
Oh fuck.Thanks, i thought the scene was during the revolution.
She was pretty cute back at that scene, if only she didn't have those dead eyes.
I want to lick and grovel at loli Nina's feet.
she would blow you away with her wind.
>shy girl who couldn't say boo to a goose and a reasonably confident guy
>when they get in the air he's completely useless and she has to tell him what to do constantly
le deconstruction face
Wasn't she only shy and spooked out in the first ep because she remembered Kal, and thought he's gonna murder him on the spot?
To me, Claire is the worst girl of the season.
You don't try to enter the military when you're a coddled meak little shit.
we don't really known why she entered the military academy. It might not have been her own choice in the first place.
I'll just take my leave.
I like the theory in the threads before that all the high ranking members in this trip are sent here just to die, like they might've gain too much power or they're in the way of new officials so they're given the honor of flying off into land unknown where they're not expected to return.
I would think they would like to keep better care of a tool that helped them overturn an entire ruling family but that might be the reason why the current people would want her dead so she might not be used against them.
>ace combat 4, shattered skies, the anime.
fuck you, anon ;__;
Ace Combat 4 was best Ace Combat.
Mobius One a cute.
I hate her more with every new episode. Why do I feel this rage?
Because you're Superman Dumbledore, time to fly.
I can't wait for him to slaughter Nina Viento the bitch.
>Calls it right.
>Gets laughed at by her class mates.
Go away, Ledouch.
Er, I'm talking about Nina,
You sound like you're talking about Karl's half-brother with white-hair that his dad begot on some woman he later exiled; and now is filled with terminal angst.
He's secretly competent, just enjoys being lazy and messing with everyone.
I love how Karl's ridiculously incompetent despite being the MC, while Nina, responsible for the death of his entire family, has wind powers and is amazingly good at both flying planes and aiming the turret.
He's just a bunch of talk, but otherwise useless.
The angst is kinda comedic at this point, he just angrily chew at his bread while being cut off at the preview.
I really hope he get better or is actually hiding his potential, he won't achieve his revenge at this rate.
He's fitting for an ex-prince actually.
Love will give him wings.
So, it got shafted. Wonder why animate something that isn't written anymore.
It becomes pirates of the caribbean.
>Hiding his potential
The guy has an internal monologue that included him breaking down. I don't think he's acting.
Yeah, would have thought he had matured somewhat though.
It's weird because I want to like this series, but the characters and the LN spoilers make it difficult for me to do so.
If that actually happen then I'm going to laugh myself to death.
I would've agreed if he was raised as a prince until he was a teenager, but he was taken out of that life style when he was just a child.
Is this one or two cours?
Is the full ED up yet?
The ED will be release on the 12th of Febuary.
Really hope they decided to give the show a conclusive ending instead of going with the one in the LN.
This scene was so good, the show does such a good job transmitting Kal el anger with his voice and facial expressions.
You really should have known better...
>Lying on the internet
The fuck is his problem?
>Having a dinner with the ex-prince of a royal family who fucked my life, never!
Pretty much, Kal el is his Nina Viento.
Its not like he's hostile. I don't see why anybody would see his actions as him having a problem, unless they're insecure.
He just wants to eat his bread by himself, no more no less.
Well, that is indeed a good reason. I will leave him alone from now on.
>Its not like he's hostile.
Now that you mention it, I haven't seen him doing anything besides angry glare and not speaking. Still, I hope that isn't all he will do.
>Claire gets kidnapped by pirates at and the LN ends ambiguously with Karl throwing together a team to go and rescue her.
God damn, this had such good potential. If Sunrise was doing this it would have been a pretty fucking awesome trainwreck, with the MC throwing a revolution while getting developed as a person and actually learning to forgive. On the other hand we get this boring kidnapped by pirates crap.
During that scene, I thought he was gonna bite her leg.
Instead, I just got a Jaëger stare.
>Now that you mention it, I haven't seen him doing anything besides angry glare and not speaking. Still, I hope that isn't all he will do.
I'm sure he would, if the faggot rich kid didn't NTR Ignacio from his own role.
This kid is massively misunderstood, I would hope he gets some nice character development, but he seems to have completely closed himself off.
it looks like a star imploded in his eye
I could listen to this all day, her voice is sex.
Why is he so set on vengeance against Nina Viento and not Duke whatever is name that he described being secretly behind the whole rebellion in the flashback anyway?
they couldn't have done it without NINA VIENTO.
He will, it probably won't happen until shit hits the fan and they get attacked. He seems like someone that won't act unless really forced to.
Because Nina Viento is the conqueror, the one who destroyed the defenses with her power, Kal el had to bow in front of him while the plebs were cheering her name, she completely humiliated him.
I think he will like Ari but will get even angrier because once again Kal is favored.
>once again Kal is favored.
No, No, No, Otouto won't be favored. In the first place, he won't admit to being the otouto.
But Ari likes Kal, it's pretty obvious.
B-But siblings can't love each other! That's forbidden love!
They're not real siblings anyways.
she likes the taste of the forbidden fruit
They are in Karl's heart.
Revenge is the only girl for him
>But Ari likes Kal, it's pretty obvious.
Really? I didn't see it at all.
I like the ED a lot. Listen to it at the end of each ep.
She does, I think she masks her sibling fights with him as flirting. Also, her face when she heard about Claire and Kal talking to girls. What I'm curious is whether Ari knows he was the ex prince, her father could have brought him home without saying anything more to protect him.
>I haven't seen him doing anything besides angry glare and not speaking
Shit, I don't even know who is his VA.
When will Kal-el lose it? When will he know he can kill?
>When will he know he can kill?
I'm more worried about how he wants to get revenge but has no means for it. He's a shit pilot and shit sharpshooter. It's like he hasn't prepared at all.
That moment when Kal-el shoots Nina with the techniques she taught him will be delicious. I just can't wait for it.
This shit is great.
Overall this anime has been done pretty well, it just depends on how the actual plot goes further on.
Pretty sure it's implied that she knows since they have that talk with each other off to the side about how the prince couldn't be on the island since he's dead.
More curious to know whether the royalty actually were terrible or if it was all set up by the rebels; from the flashbacks this episode it seems there were at least people who thought the royal family shouldn't be butchered, and considering when the students mention the prince there wasn't some sort of taboo or hatred on their speech I'm curious of current opinion of the government.
Is the a traitor? She seems like one.
No, pole polisher.
I want to protect that smile.
Makes me wonder why she wasn't smiling when she sent tornadoes to the town. You know, the ones that probably took dozens to hundreds of lives.
There. Delayed reaction.
Will Ignacio win the Ari?
What are the chances for good 34?
I hate this. It's like they're all staring at me and it's giving me a panic attack.
I want to protect this not smile.
I kinda know what you mean. Doesn't bother me but I can see what can happen to some.
Is there a gif of this scene? It'd be a great reaction image.
It doesn't bother me as a still image but I felt uncomfortable watching this scene for the same reason. If this happened in real life I'd probably flip out.
Sage for blog
So what's the purpose of the expedition?
They better keep twintails alive, she is adorable.
I think they are bullshiting the kids and want them to go to war against someone.
Probably what >>100698176 said.
Maybe they are running out of water as well though.
