Last thread was mostly Rui dump, as Gatcha threads usually are. Let's speculate about season two.

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."

>The world is currently facing two new developments.

>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.

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?

>>100701176
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.

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.

>>100703088
Picked up on, yes. It's a bit different when explained in the way that it was in that post though.

How many gatchas will die next season? Probably just OD, Utsutsu and Hajime, right? Or maybe leader will make a brave sacrifice.
>>
>>100700676
>>100700964
I enjoyed the fact that it was a superhero show but they spend most of the episodes NOT fighting or avoiding fights.
>>
>>100703812
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.
>>
>>100705387
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.
>>
>>100705387
Valvshit didn't do shit better than anything.

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.
>>
>>100705894
Was Rui the true main protagonist?
>>
>>100706550

I think Hajime was meant to be the protagonist, but Rui had the plot focus? Maybe... Rui was the heroine.
>>
>>100706616

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.
>>
>>100706616
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.
>>
>>100700676
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.

>>100707364
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.

>>100707557
She's an alien though, isn't she?

>>100707867
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.
>>
>>100707897
God damn it, I have a need.
>>
>>100708083
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.
>>
>>100708188
But when she uses it, the G logo appears on her palms.

>>100706759

He gets paired with Berg, who is more important than any Gatchman except for Hajime.
>>
>>100708291
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.

>>100708389
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).
>>
>>100708433
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.
>>
>>100708569

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.
>>
>>100708673
what
>>
>>100708673
I want this too.

>>100708569
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.
