Last thread was mostly Rui dump, as Gatcha threads usually are. Let's speculate about season two.
What was that, Anon?
I'm not sure what the first season was trying to accomplish, because it certainly wasn't superhero antics. If they make it into an action show for the second season it's going to feel weird
Hajime is still retarded. Everyone dies. Rui become a girl for real. Hajime became a jav.
It was trying to accomplish character development, mostly. Also "ignore Internet trolls."
Why us Ruirui the best girl?
>The world is currently facing two new developments.
>The first being that, for the first time in known history, our minds have become visible through the internet. Unable to understand how we should perceive the problems and conflicts caused by those visible hearts, individuals as well as society remain in a state of bewilderment.
>The second is, in our ever expanding world, all areas continually become more finely specialized, and it is no longer possible for a single person to grasp the entirety of a subject. And even then we blindly expect a single superb leader to carry everything alone.
>Are these two phenomenon coincidence?
>Is there not a good way to use our now visible hearts?
>It is considering those concepts that I intend to develop the work called Gatchaman Crowds.
oh damn, I want to rewatch it now with this in mind
Me, too. When the director's cut finale is subbed, I'm going to marathon it.
So I looked at that one spoiler pick and I guess the ending is explained, but what of the MESS? Or did they just chuck that storyline into the garbage compressor?
It seems a lot less random now. It also reminds me of "Emil and the Detectives"
except they used payphones and bored borderline delinquents instead of internet and superpowers. It gave me a similar FUCK YEA TEAMWORK rush though.
Wouldn't titface ben /diy/? She didn't just make cranes.
She even hums a little tune about it.
Think I'll finally be picking this back up. Is there any estimate yet on when S2 might be airing?
Seriously? There were people who watched it all the way through and didn't pick up on any of that?
Almost everything she does is papercraft except in that one episode. She makes mostly things for pleasure and cause she finds them pretty, rather than functional.
Picked up on, yes. It's a bit different when explained in the way that it was in that post though.
Has the new sountrack been released?
New fanbook getting released on Jan 28.
Saw a tweet. http://twitpic.com/drha1q
How many gatchas will die next season? Probably just OD, Utsutsu and Hajime, right? Or maybe leader will make a brave sacrifice.
I enjoyed the fact that it was a superhero show but they spend most of the episodes NOT fighting or avoiding fights.
Fuck. If I pre-order now, I'll be broke for a while, but if I don't, it might sell out as fast as the Kinako Design Works did.
Personally I think Valvrave did the social media thing better than Gatchaman Crowds. Even though Valvrave wasn't about social media at all, it was just a handwave at the end for how they caught the magiuses.
Gatchaman Crowds was a better show but just because it was fun and has good characters and music.
I really liked Galax.
And I'm the type of person who doesn't even have a facebook, but if something like Galax existed, I could totally see the practicality of that and I would definitely get behind it.
Valvshit didn't do shit better than anything.
Galax was the better social media tool because X was waifu material.
I still see that in stock at Amazon JP. I also saw another new book. ガッチャマン クラウズ ノベライゼーション SUGANE NOTE 2015-2016 [単行本]: http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%82%AC%E3%83%83%E3%83%81%E3%83%A3%E3%83%9E%E3%83%B3-%E3%82%AF%E3%83%A9%E3%82%A6%E3%82%BA-%E3%83%8E%E3%83%99%E3%83%A9%E3%82%A4%E3%82%BC%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B7%E3%83%A7%E3%83%B3-SUGANE-2015-2016/dp/4758013586
I'm hoping it gets scanned by some anon because I can't find these on Honto. I don't know if I can afford Amazon's shipping.
My dick. My wallet. I'm in pain. Poorfag is suffering.
Thanks for the info.
I could see if my Kinokuniya can bring it in but I doubt it ;_;. I want the whole set, damn it.
Rui was the guy who brought up the themes. Galax was his platform and firmly believed in that second.
Katze and Hajime fought for his heart and sanity. Hajime won.
Was Rui the true main protagonist?
I think Hajime was meant to be the protagonist, but Rui had the plot focus? Maybe... Rui was the heroine.
Rui was the heroine (literally, he was a girl) in the old idea with Sugane as MC, mascot Paipai and that JJ/Berg fusion as antagonist/corrupted leader.
Deuteragonist? I don't know; Rui rarely gets billed with the Gatchaman on covers of shit, but he's really one of the most important characters in the series. I wonder if that method of advertising will change with season 2.
Around about when the chick with the glasses turned up and started yapping I had no idea what was going on and got bored waiting for more of that oppai loli
I just want more Utsutsu.
I'm disappointed because I wanted Utsutsu to be an actual cat person from another planet OD had brought along to Earth, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
She's an alien though, isn't she?
Yes but no rip yet.
M27 [sounds] prty gud
From what I've read of Design Works, she seems to be human. I hope she's an alien, though. I want her ears to be real and not a cartoon effect.
God damn it, I have a need.
She has that life/death thing going on with her hands though so I just assumed. Becoming a Gatcha doesn't give you special powers outside of the suit.
But when she uses it, the G logo appears on her palms.
He gets paired with Berg, who is more important than any Gatchman except for Hajime.
And who is also generally on the backs of things like artbooks, rather than the cover; I assume this is because he is the villain. Yet even for material released after the series' end, where it's shown that Rui didn't turn to The Dark Side, Rui is stuck on the back cover too. It's curious to me that Rui is consistently paired with Katze even after he's firmly with the good guys.
What covers? He's in all covers except the ones with solo Hajime or old pics that only introduced Sugane and Joe.
For instance, Kinako Design Works has the Gatchaman all on the front, with Rui and Katze on the back. This also seems to be the case with the new Animation Note, and probably Sugane Note (neither Katze nor Rui are on the cover, but the back cover hasn't been shown yet).
But the real OTP is Rui/X.
Because Rui's not in the main group until later in the show and the artists love Rui/Berg Katze. Wasn't it pretty obvious? Look at this pic Rui's teasing him holding his note and his together.
I want Berg out of Hajime's boobs in second season, not reformed but muffled and kept around as pet with Rui as his jailer. Look at his smug.
I want this too.
That's why I wondered if things would different after season two. It just struck me as a pointless 'keeping the reveal a secret' since all these books are released after the show's over and nobody who hasn't watched them through is going to buy them.
Their Notes are rubbing together. That's lewd as fuck.
