why can't this get it's own tv series?
Because point of view perspective
It'd be like trying to adapt Virtues Last Reward
GnM doesn't have perspective issues. SnK does.
What about the whole is kyousuke really maou? scenes. Since the VN doesn't show what he looks like until the end of the game an anime would ruin that.
its pretty much fully revealed in chapter 2
What? The VN shows what they both look like in the first two hours.
just got like halfway through chapter 5
mind blown, i lose
It was ok, it wasn't so much a mind blow as a fuck yeah kinda thing. It was pretty obvious that it was his brother since the photo of him was conveniently cut off at his neck.
Sharin's chapter 5 is a real mind blow.
Because it's shitty, with cop out end. Would only be good if it followed any of the side routes.
The side routes weren't really the strong point of it. I think it could go over them without the romance, just the extra character development, and then still follow the main story.
Nigger the side routes were pieces of shit compared to the canon route
As for why it couldn't be an anime, well it really could it wouldn't be hard
You don't actually see Kyousuke's face until that bit in the burning building where he decides to be cool guy
A face doesn't matter, they look the exact same. Same hair, same basic figure, and could be voiced by the same person and still work.
Guess the whole VN was garbage then, because that ending was laughable. They wrote that shit into the ground.
You don't see his eyes, but it hardly matters when they look exactly the same otherwise, you'd make that conclusion
Just imagine that ending animated.
The feels would be overwhelming.
I'm sorry anon, but your shit taste is terminal I fear
Keep your shit taste to yourself.
I would sit through 25 goddamn episodes complete with hotsprings filler where they uncover Maou's offbrand manju factory and shut it down. I would watch through its shitty pacing and guaranteed QUALITY, if they do the epilogue as well as the VN.
I'd add the condition of doing Gonzou's death/Gonzou in general well myself
The threads would be amazing. Imagine the shitstorm when Maou fake-bombs the ice rink and gives everyone the same outfit, then he isn't even there.
It would be thread of the year.
I liked how many words they came up with for penis
All I know about G-Senjou no Maou is I downloaded it then held Ctrl for ten minutes and skipped through two hours' worth of garbage. School scenes, over and over and over. (presumably) eating lunch on the roof. Talking in the hallways. Doing fucking nothing worthwhile.
I can't imagine that whatever it does to depart from the norm is worth reading through all that tripe.
They would have to completely scratch the other girls if they did an adaptation. The VN has pacing issues because of the way the story is told. If they just did the canon route I imagine it could work very well.
>You only get to hear the word penis once
>If you do, you die shortly after
>(presumably) eating lunch on the roof.
>He skipped the scene where they all go on an adventure
>He skipped Usami bin laden
>He skipped God himself
What a faggot.
You are the worst.
All the shit taste I see every time there's a G Senjou thread kinda makes me glad we never have threads for infinity series games
Good, don't do it to yourself.
I didn't skip through the entire game, just until the intro video played.
Tell me, is reading through all of those monotonous school scenes really worth whatever you're talking about? Is it really that god-tier that reading braindead dialogue for hours is worth it?
If you have ADD you don't read VNs as a rule generally
Yeah fuck reading in a visual novel.
You don't even know what he meant by "god". Fucking stupid cunt.
If only those scenes were actually funny
>There will never be an OVA with rub-a-dub-dub thanks for the grub
>There will never be an OVA with pro-wrestling
Why bother going on?
How short is your attention span? Go and watch Kill La Kill and play Call of Duty you massive faggot.
just got to that scene
can't play anymore, I'm dying
If you like this piece of shit, you're one to talk.
Holy shit, I forgot he was a KKK member.
No, not ADD, I just don't like wasting time. In vndb's "10 - 30 hours" I could watch 2-5 1 cour shows. Why would you assume someone with a low tolerance for terrible literature has a low attention span?
I wouldn't, because I didn't read it, that's correct. Astute observation.
Taro-kun walked down the school hallway. Mary-chan walked up to him. "Taro-kun, here's a bento I made for you!" said Mary. "Oh, ahahaha, you didn't have to do that, Mary-chan!" said Taro. "Let's go eat our bento boxes on the roof!" said Mary.
[repeat with minor differences for literally hours]
I like reading, just not reading schlock. I'm asking if the story beyond the school life garbage is worth it, and if so how that could possibly be the case.
Then leave the thread, nobody cares about your existence here.
>Why would you assume someone with a low tolerance for terrible literature has a low attention span?
VNfags are defensive like that
Please enlighten us with the titles of some quality VN's then.
It's like you never read anything in your worthless scum life, holy shit, enough with your bullshit, just leave.
>Why would you assume someone with a low tolerance for terrible literature has a low attention span?
Because you said you didn't even read it, it's one thing to read something dislike it and drop it it's another to pick up a book and go "It probably won't get good until about halfway, so let's skip the intro and just start on page 160"
You have no fucking idea of what the 'character interactions' concept is, this makes me conclude you really never read anything in your pathetic life.
Bitch please. There are no characters in this piece of shit
Get the fuck out.
All the tension between characters just wash away with the shitty chapter 5 reveal.
>Dissenting opinions are not allowed! Leave! I don't care, that's why I'm responding!
I think you're right about that. It's probably just fans of the medium in general. I have not yet found a VN that is not mired in tedium.
Oh, wow. Did I strike a nerve? Are you flustered over someone having something critical to say over your school life VN #78534?
I read about ten minutes and found that nothing of interest in the slightest was happening, at all. Does it get good halfway in? I'm sorry if I'm wary of wasting 5-15 hours based on the claims of people who call me worthless scum for saying that their VN was boring.
Lying and drawing upon lies for a conclusion that would be fallacious even if said lies were true.
>Implying Usami isn't the greatest female character of all time
Best is a little hasty but she's up there
You are clearly a retard. You don't even have the brain to read something before you can judge it, so why don't you just fuck off?
It was my first VN ever and I loved every second of it.
However, I never want to see it animated. It couldn't possibly be a good adaptation, so fuck it.
>I read about ten minutes
Yeah, people like you really deserve to die. Holy shit, you're cancer.
The first one made me laugh because he was a KKK member, but yeah they really weren't that funny after that
I don't remember the power of Christ compels you, was that an early translation or did I just download a bad one?
>I read about ten minutes and found that nothing of interest
If not being able to focus on something for more than ten minutes isn't ADD I don't know what is
I'm not any of those trolls, but can anyone give me a good reason to read this?
From the outside it looks edgy and the plot twists sound confused.
And the Maou guy sounds like a jerk.
No, I read ten minutes of it, made a judgement call that it would be school bullshit, then watched the art for ten minutes as I held Ctrl and watched as I proved myself right.
Regardless of the actual content of whatever happened in there, it is poorly paced to the point of being unbearably tedious.
How much should I read before giving up on it, then? I value my time.
>I don't know what is
Didn't mean to quote.
Okay, so I can read a bit and if I don't like her I probably won't like the game?
The game isn't honestly all that good. The pacing is awkward, the characters are a bit anemic and the writing gets really shitty at times.
That being said there are a few scenes in the game that are REALLY FUCKING GOOD. Like, worth sitting through the other 29 hours of the game for. That and its got very good music, even the tracks that aren't just entry level classical music.
Amusingly enough I can't come up with a reason to disagree with this, yeah if you don't like the characters then yeah you probably won't like it
I agree, but could you point out some of the scenes you're talking about?
It has a really fucking good ending. Like the kind of shit you'll never forget kinda ending.
No not really.
A surprisingly reasonable proposition /a/.
It does give me some idea of why you like it.
I want this animated just to see /a/'s reaction. Also wish there existed more VN's like Maou.
the characters were great
also, see >>100823542
Ok, spoilers obviously
The climax of Kanon's, Gonzou's death, Mizuha's bad end and of course the Epilogue.
Also God's little scenes are pretty funny, if you're into that sort of thing. I didn't really like them but I didn't hate them or anything.
Tears didn't roll down your cheeks when he took the blame for the murder?
No, it was a good ending to be sure, but if you're talking about "fuck the rest of the novel, read it for the ending" it's gotta be something like E17, that mindscrew still has me
Look, the moment you decided to call it "school bullshit" because you read 10 minutes of text is what pretty much proves you're totally a stupid retard.
Since you don't seem to be baiting I'll tell you that if you ever really considered reading a VN you should at least go 1/3 through it before reaching a decition of whether to call it a "good VN" or a "bad VN". The fact that you're bitching about this only having read 10 minutes of text out of 25-30 hours is what's making everyone shit on you, I can't believe it myself.
To be honest, you really make me think you never read shit in your entire life.
tldr, you're a massive idiot judging this is a bad VN if you really only read 10 minutes out of a 3 hours long VN. The same applies for any VN. You have no excuse.
That's not what I meant at all. I just meant that it had a particularly good ending in comparison to the rest of it.
My only complaint is how the characters felt like they were forgotten completely after their respective chapters up until the end
Well shit, I need to sleep now. Also, meant 30 hours long* at the end.
Isn't that the rule with most things? It's where the whole idea of a climax comes from
No, the climax in G-sen is shit. The denouement however is fantastic.
No, generally most things have endings that don't live up to expectations. Just hang around /a/ after some shitty animu ends and a dozen threads complaining about how bad the ending was will pop up.
No. The only thing remotely interesting in the end was his interactions with his brother. I'm sorry what happened? He went to jail for some years and came out fresh with a family and a happy end (literally 10-20 mins later)? Sorry if that wasn't interesting. The whole scene was entirely too shit for me.
My mistake, it wouldn't have been that bad of an end if MC didn't basically turn into an entirely new character in the last chapter. Maybe then I'd have had some attachment in the end.
it's funny how 8 years in prison works.
If anime adaptation would happen, they would need god-tier writer and director to not turn this into shit. Not going to happen.
>being in prison while your daughter grows up without dad and your wife stresses herself over making a career and raising her.
If you didn't feel anything, then you are psychopathic bastard.
>MC didn't basically turn into an entirely new character in the last chapter
The fuck are you even talking about?
I don't understand, he didn't change that much.
image switch I hope?
>what is character developmentn
Like I said, 10 mins later. If I am not invested in the characters in some other way, it has no meaning. It was boring. I live around many, many people with worse circumstances.
Everything down to MC's decision making changed in that final chapter. He felt entirely different because the whole VN was riding on that shitty red herring crutch about his brother being maou. If I recall correctly, the side routes were designed with MC actually being maou, while in the final chapter he isn't? Stupid.
The only thing that made me "feel" in that melodramatic piece of shit epilogue was Eiichi's letter. Bromance of that magnitude gets respect.
The entire series of events in that epilogue made absolute no sense whatsover.
Also Haru a shit in her own route. Okay in other routes.
>you will never be adopted by Gonzou
i almost cried when he was sitting against that wall talking
I'm not sure I'd survive being adopted by Gonzou
I cried more than I did in the prison scenes.
It was just a little thing, but I absolutely loved how the title screen BGM changed after every chapter
this is going to be my wallpaper for a while now...
Just went back and did Mizuha's bad end because I realized I never did it. Was really surprising.
>no Yuki route
>no fandisc with a route for her in it
Fuck this gay earth
Yeah I wish Mizuha's route would've been replaced with a Yuki route.
