What was the general consensus on this?
I thought it was shit.
So unforgettably forgettable.
No one has given a single shit about it.
One of the best-animated shows of 2013. Very mediocre story though.
I liked it.
Ending was shit.
Better animation and direction than anything else airing at the same time, but dumb story with dumb characters. Really mediocre. Idol episode was the only good episode.
Watch it for the animation and Ai-chan and Hiroomoi, do not expect anything for coherent plot or character development.
It was okay, 10/10.
The ending was garbage and I was pretty bored by the end. At least Mitsuki was awesome.
>it was okay
What do you give shows that you actually like
Good characters, a shame that they didn't develop for shit.
Mitsuki along with Akkey and what's his name's interactions were good.
Everything else was just unmentionable. Boring as shit and a stupid ending.
mirai should have stayed dead but other than that it was ok
It needed more episodes to establish characters, world, motivations and all that jazz. The ending felt too quick. There was no impact after glasses-chan's death. She died, and then she was back 5 minutes later. Not to mention that both her death and revival were both pretty forced. I had fun watching it, but I won't call it good.
What was the general consensus on Taichi Ishidate?
should he ever direct again?
It would have been better if:
A) They didn't tease her dying and just had her be saved by Akkey
B) IF she was going to die, she should have stayed dead.
Other than that, I liked it, the ending was shit though. I would watch a Season 2.
5/10 average. I wonder call it anything more or less.
Good unit director, needs to be more responsible for overseeing the story rather than just paying attention to the animation.
>giving a crazy bitch another chance at life
>she sees your dick
I enjoyed it.
Tragic ending would have been better.
not much else.
KyoAni very obviously out of their comfort zone and it shows. The characters were almost all god-awful and the melodramatic plot is utter shit. If every episode was more like the Idol episode it would've been a better show.
What the fuck was up with the ending, did I miss something ?
Dropped it after the second episode or something.
It was shit, Kagome
AOTS of fall 2013. Trolls, shitposters and ADHD kids did their best to destroy discussion, though, so most decent people just stopped posting. This thread is a good example. It was too close to Free, too complex for the usual CGDCT crowd, too subtle for the teens who got used to characters shouting their motivations into each others faces. Those endless threads of "why she stab him lol makes no sense what a shit show"... It was pretty much /a/'s lowest moments, horrible. As expected from 12 year old little girls.
>if every episode had no meaning at all and didn't relate to anything, it would have been good
Idolfag go homu.
well I know this is a troll, but I really did actually like the show but I didn't think it was AOTS at all, I was enjoying it until that god damn ending man.
Yuushibu had a better ending that KnK, and it wasn't even trying.
>Those endless threads of "why she stab him lol makes no sense what a shit show"... It was pretty much /a/'s lowest moments, horrible. As expected from 12 year old little girls.
Even though, this is a >guaranteed replies I agree with that point.
Pretty good show. Would've preferred a different ending, with Fujimilk being the hero they deserved, but it was okay. Looking forward to season 2 to bring a new confrontation and wrap remaining stuff up (Fujimilk turning out to be the hero, for example).
oh god mitsuki
Not enough shots of izami getting fucked in her nylons.
wich knk wud u fug
I had a lot of high expectations and unfortunately these expectations weren't met. The ending kinda blows. Characters were enjoyable though.
Mitsuki and armpit senpai were the only good things about this shit.
the cat obviously
not the kitty cat
i'd cuddle her
Pinnacle example of why SHAFT >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> than KyoAni
They fucked up on the ending and the dialogue was cringe worthy as well in that particular ending scene.
I'd stroke that pussy all night long.
echo echo echo
excellent animation, good characters, a few interesting plot twists, some enjoyable filler, Ai
non existent pacing, incoherent mood, meandering plot, cop out ending, some shitty filler, not enough Ai
overall mostly dissapointing, would watch a S2 though
Anyone have a gif of that dancing cat ai scene?
the idol scene?
No no, the scene at the very beginning of the episode when she's in cat form
God too much unnecessary hate at the beginning and was thoroughly enjoyable up until that shitty cop out ending.
I'm just glad that those shitty KlK vs KnK threads are gone now.
Are you sure you're not thinking of the dancing marmot?
That was definitely the best episode in terms of comedy.
I think it was my favorite one.
Maybe I'm remembering wrong. Please post the dancing marmot if you could.
Izumi best Christmas
purest form of love
One of those shows where just looking at the gifs is better than watching the show. In other words, a Kyoani show.
I completely forgot about it until I saw this thread. That's just how average it was.
Not KyoAni's best work, but still better then AIR.
The ED was fucking god-tier, but I can't say much else about it.
Loved the animation, the fluffiness, and the cat girl, but man the pacing was absolute dog shit. Not to mention having the absolute worst ending in the world.
At least the idol episode was fun to watch.
Damn, yeah. The ED was incredible.
i think Ishidate really wanted to do a series filled with adult women considering how many of them were involved
Idiots dropped it because of non-existant plot holes, smart people kept on and enjoyed the rush of speculation towards the end, keyfags are looking forward to the inevitable second season considering the threads they created in the last episode.
Also, we still don't know exactly what Mirai is right now, which is awesome.
It was the way the episodes ended and it flawlessly went into the ED that I liked about it.
>still asking /a/ for "general consesus"
>all these people thinking mirai was dead in the first place
Seriously though, /a/ thought it was medicre around the beginning mostly because "Mirai is an asshole for stabbing Akkey for no reason!"
Then Idol episode and everyone went insane.
Next episode everyone was saying it was a fanservice show devoid of any consistent plot.
Around the episodes near the end, anticipation grew higher. Lots of people rated episode 9/10 quite high. Lots of people said "Shit. Plotholes!" when it explained why Mirai was acting the way she was.
Ending was shit though. Most people say it would've been okay if she stayed dead. I'm betting Mirai wasn't dead really but they should've made her stay "dead" until S2 or the OVA.
What really bothered me about this show was how they introduced the sistercon guy as some silly comic relief character but then 1 episode later he's a serious ghost hunter who has to save his little sister. I just could not take him seriously because of his stupid fucking haircut and because he randomly jumped back to comic relief mode. This is probably just me though.
As one would expect KyoAni to care about something that is not fujoshi pandering.
>Most people say it would've been okay if she stayed dead
I agree, like I posted earlier they should have either made Akkey save her right then and there so no drama, or just have her die off. The whole dying and coming back is so fucking stupid, it seems so forced. Almost like they HAD to do it.
Here we go with fujoshit again. Kyoani didn't invent fujoshit, moron. You're only butthurt because of Free. No one was complaining about fujoshit this and fujoshit that before Free.
>still asking /a/ for "general consesus"
I wasn't really, I just wanted an excuse for discussion.
The only good thing that came out of this show.
You are aware that Free is the only fujoshit show KyoAni has animated, right?
Or perhaps you aren't aware of anything they made pre-2012?
I don't care about your defending apologetic bullshit.
I'm just saying what one can expect from KyoAni now that they've found their 'true call'.
Of course they are already flirting with eroticism in the new Free, claiming it will be "even hotter than before".
When did they do anything like that with male orientated shows? Never? That's what I've thought.
The older sister when she was on the couch too
i just saved this twice.
They clearly go all out with Free.
They never do anything to cater to male fans like that.
Do the math.
>choosing a boring fluffball like Mirai instead of THAT
Akkey must have some serious brain problems. No wonder her brother wants to fuck her.
Seems like the old and busted, fat hag Kyoani employers probably are.
Then again, it's not like we have a clear idea of what happened to Mirai anyway. She could've been somewhere, with Mama Kanbara in a state of coma because her soul of essesnce or consciousness is trapped in KnK. That's why the one that came back didn't have glasses. It could be a subtle hint because she didn't have it before she went AWOL while she does have one in KnK, which might imply that she isn't really Mirai.
Of course all of these is guesswork. Again, Mirai should've stayed missing in the last episode to keep the momentum it had built a few minutes earlier. But, no. They just had to destroy it for "good ending".
I don't get your reasoning.
Agreed, maybe a hint of her existing like her glasses being found somewhere, but not here there completely.
I'm a happy ending guy so I would have liked Akkey just to save her right then and there, because I'm a faggot like that, but they way they did it. Ugh. I can't complain enough about it.
It was ok.
It's like you really don't know anything about source materials and their availability to the studio.
K-on was pretty /u/-pandering. Why isn't that their "true call"?
>that bored expression
>those perfectly sized tits
>fuck young school girls, let's promote mature, adult girls like us as the best thing ever!
KyoAni landwhale logic.
stop avatarfagging as burger-chan
I'm still not getting your reasoning. Mitsuki IS a young school girl.
I just post cute girls, no need to get upset.
Because they are horny old women clearly concentrating everything on their sexual fetish animated.
That's no reason why they should go all out with Free while not giving a shit about their other projects.
New Chuu2 is ridiculous.
She looks like an adult mature woman, so no, she isn't.
Whatever you say, buddy.
>Because they are horny old women clearly concentrating everything on their sexual fetish animated.
Okay I'm done with you. You just hate kyoani. I'm guessing they raped your mom or something? Eitherway, you shouldn't hold so much grudge towards something. I mean you're watching their show for god's sake. If you really hate it, why do you keep on watching it? You're adding gasolines to your fire.
Or maybe getting on /a/ to bitch about it like you have some true prupose in your life with it is more important to you. Good luck with that then.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Chu2 wasn't about swimming. It would be a little strange for them to wear swimsuits as frequently as the characters in Free, even if it did open up that route to "cater to male fans".
Yes, but they decided to just plain go all "CAN'T SHOW ANYTHING" route instead, even compared to first season.
Mitsuki is the cutest.
>fujoshit's wet dream
Oh please, Kyoani.
My biggest issue with this show is that it tried to add tons of plot related shit near the end, I know only 3 vols of the LN came out so there is a limited to what they can tell the viewers but it is annoying to show so much season 2 baits.
Other than that, I dislike the timing of the "funny" scenes.
You're really working hard for those angry replies, aren't you anon.
You can't really compare its content to the first season until it's done airing.
>Akkey's VA is a fucking hack, can't even do a tsukkomi decently
>Still use him just because he's a male idol popular among women
Oh but I can.
>not even a lewd angle
And we already know that their exposed body are blobs, so not even a beach episode can save it.
Great animation and music wasted to an okay anime. That what KnK is.
I liked it, probably a little too much.
S2 never ;_;
and it continues to be a fallacy despite your shoehorning.
Ep 6 was the single most enjoyable episode of the season. Rest of the show was horribly mediocre.
Whatever you say, my little fujoshit.
It reminded me of when KyoAni wasn't actually against girl sexualization.
But then everything else happened.
what the fuck are you talking about
Nope. Aside from the OP,ED, insert song in ep 6, generally it was very weak.
Sound Effects were shit and had no impact on the fight scenes
BGM was stale, really killed the urgency in the fight scenes. Not to mention most of them are forgettable. Even Chuunibyou had better soundtrack which was intended to depict a parody of fantasy-action genre.
I'm talking about FujoAni carefully paying attention not to feature their girls in lewd angles in the second season, unlike the first one.
Well, no surprise that the sales are not even comparable.
Easily the worst hatebase I've ever seen. A bunch of people shitposted about it before it aired, then people who didn't watch the show complained about it.
The characters literally all had more to them then was first obvious, and the development between Akkey and Mirai (the 2 main fucking characters) was good. The plot twists were actually good, and the directing towards the end was great (OP leading into the episode, Akkey's dream world, almost kiss, them holding hands while fighting). The animation and OST were great.
Sure it wasn't perfect, Fujima as a character was weak and Mirai coming back (although 100% explained within the show) was a letdown after how great the last few episodes were.
The people who hate it complain about shit that makes it obvious they didn't watch it, or just watched 2 episodes while half paying attention and just looking for things to complain about as most are explained within the show.
The people who liked it had some of the best quality threads I've seen after the shitposters had left, kept it to one thread at a time, hit the limit then started a new one. Actually one of the better fanbases I've seen.
Ending may have been a letdown, but between Hiroomi being the new house head, Akkey and Mirai's new relationship and whatever the hell Yayoi is doing I'm excited for season 2.
I really hope Takemoto directs more episodes. Episode 10 was my favorite.
I liked Mirai. Not so much at the beginning but she just kept getting better
Both of the times she "died" were really well done and emotional, but the 2nd time didn't have as much impact for me. Still a good show. ED was fantastic
8/10 my favorite of winter. Not that it had much competition
Oh god, Fujoshit defense force, stop justifying a mediocre show.
Cute. Not much else going for it.
They way it went it looked like they were planning on Fujima being good and Izumi being true evil, with possible a revenge ending.
It felt like towards the end they wanted to do a season 2 so they threw the original villain idea out the window.
>Fujoshit defending KnK
Are you retarded? Do you even know what fujoshit are?
>but they should've made her stay "dead" until S2 or the OVA.
Fucking this. Her blood (read: soul) was inside Akkey, would have been cool if he was incapacitate or lost control or something, then Mirai fought her way out of Hiroomi went in to save Akkey from something inside him, and saved Mirai while in there.
It would have been a nice break in pacing for bringing her back.
The show would have been fantastic given 2 cour.
Cute, great universe, poor execution and atrocious ending. Would look forward to season two.
>all these people implying KnK is a fujoshit show
>all these people blaming fujoshits for everything they don't like
This is either an IRC thread or /a/ has reached /v/ levels of paranoia.
Yes, I know what Fujoshit is. The kind of new "KyoAni" fans that lick their anus since they've become their loyal fans since Free aired and will defend anything that shithole of a studio churns out, despite being obviously against their old fans.
>Oh god, Fujoshit defense force,
Kyoani has the worst hatebase, I really don't get it.
Mad they aren't making more FMP/Haruhi? Call them shit.
Mad they aren't making more Key? Call them shit.
Mad they made Chuu2? Call them faggots.
Mad they made Free? Call the fujoshi.
I want to see more of some of there series, and others I couldn't care less about. I just watch what looks interesting without flinging shit and judging each piece on its own.
Do fujoshi enjoy Sakura Trick?
What does Sakura Trick has to do with your argument?
No, fujoshit wouldn't enjoy it, and neither would Kyoani do anything like that.
Seeing as it's almost impossible to have a civil KnK thread now that it's done airing (thanks shitposters, maybe you'll be gone after KlK is done airing) I'll post this here.
It's the song used from the PV trailer. Really wish this got used during the show, it's a great song.
>What does Sakura Trick has to do with your argument?
>No, fujoshit wouldn't enjoy it,
You called me a fujoshi because you feel like shitposting, I like Sakura Trick. By your definition I am not a fujoshi.
Now go shitpost somewhere else.
But your kind is the one who probably enjoys KLK, and also
>enjoying Sakura Trick
Nice bullshit you pulled up, too bad nobody falls for that, fujoshit.
>thinks fujoshit defend a non-fujoshit show because of the studio
>blindly hates a show because of the studio
Le monogatari killer :^)
Can you please fuck off with your Us vs. Them bullshit already? Not everyone watches (or doesn't watch) anime as a weapon against fanbases they don't like.
Would have liked it if the main heroine wasn't such a fruitcake.
Your game is out, apologetic fujoshit.
ignore the bait
>who probably enjoys KLK
Don't insult me like that.
>Nice bullshit you pulled up
Lesbodynamics, flustered girls and pure displays of love and affection. It gave me exactly what it promised and I enjoy it. Go cry somewhere else.
It was mediocre at best. The dialogue was cringe worthy early on. The characters were so-so aside from maybe Mirai and MC. Everyone else was just there. The villain literally talks to himself to provide the audience exposition. And speaking of villain, what a fucking terrible villain. Talk about a pathetic fucking motive.
The only high point was the animation and art but even that was marred by the shitty digital effects that KyoAni likes to overuse.
>S2 never ;_;
There is always OVA and maybe movie because 1st volume sold better than Tamako's
Sorry but I don't believe for a moment that someone who defends KyoAni's politics like Sakura Trick.
I want to know where everyone from these speculation threads are now. Those were good times.
>but even that was marred by the shitty digital effects that KyoAni likes to overuse.
You make a bunch of complaints that are wrong every time then cry about digital effects because somehow they blinded you during the show. You say the same stupid shit in every thread.
Fujoshi means "dirty woman". Both homolust and yurilust are dirty under society's eyes. So yes they can like both.
Why am I even replying?
>who defends KyoAni's politics
>I like some shows
>I don't care about others
Not everyone is interested in fanboy retard wars like you are. Go try console wars on /v/, it's more your speed.
And this is the first time I've posted in a KnK thread since it ended. But you can keep being so defensive all you want though. I know that's popular amongst KyoAni "fans".
Sadly, you're too obvious to read, my little fujoshi.
Especially since you think avatarfagging with a show you don't even watch helps your case.
We like KnK so we avoid obvious troll thread full of the usual "X a shit" "kyoanus" "fujoshit" "forced X" all or nothing stuff. Mostly.
>enjoying a show means you hold a political view
This right here is what's wrong with /a/.
The characters were all complete cheeseballs, that was kind of the point
>Other characters were just there
Not at all. Did you miss everything Hiroomi did? How he wasn't actually a siscon? Mitsuki's feelings and how she basically had to swallow them? Her displeasure at having a shitty life because of her family and then being left out of all their "serious" business.
Yeah, no one thought he was good, but his role wasn't as important as how Akkey and Mirai dealt with the KnK and their issues, which was the focus of the story.
The animation was great, if you found those digital effects to be that unbearable you should get your eyes checked.
Can we have good threads after this season ends? Most of the shows that attract shitposters should be done by then. I really don't understand why people like to hate on Kyoani so much, it's sad.
Because if someone likes KnK that means they like ALL kyoani shows and worship kyoani like a god.
Now you say....
Sadly, only the "new Kyoanifans" care about KnK.
Well, do you KyoAnus fags even want to bother anymore? This is the kinda leddit niggers you attract.
mirai is mai waifu. Give me your worst /a/
Only reason I even watched all of this schlock is to see if it'd get any better and the animation was pretty.
I'll cry knowing another man loves my waifu
>I know that's popular amongst KyoAni "fans".
Kill yourself, retard.
Good. I'll take care of Izumi and/or Shizuku myself.
>More fanbase wars bullshit
Literally the stupidest thing I've ever seen.
Not my waifu, but your waifu is a fucking hero. Good for you. I have to say though, your waifu is has a husbando that is already a perfect match for her.
>only the "new Kyoanifans" care about KnK.
I call the cocktease and the lonely Christmas Cake.
No, that's actually true this time.
Studio wars are stupid, but you can see their stinking fujoshit intentions every time you watch a KyoAni series made recently.
we have Chuu2 s2, Tamako Movie, Free s2, and KnK did 6k. We're or less guranteed a KnK s2.
>but you can see their stinking fujoshit intentions every time you watch a KyoAni series made recently.
in the Chuu2 threads posting Satone.
I don't see how that has anything to counter my statements.
don't cry, be happy that your fellow anon shares your feelings, I know I am
Christ this thread is like watching an episode of The Office. Its not funny, its just awkward and embarrassing.
Second season is another case of "let's remove everything that could pander to males".
it sucked. 9/10
>let's remove everything that could pander to males
>ED features the girls naked
In a non-sexual way, you fucking fujoshit.
Ah, I avoided the Chuu2 threads because retards would complain about the fake NTR not knowing what Satones real role is. Guess I'll spend more time ther.
We might see whatever the hell Akkey's mom is doing, and now Akkey and Mirai are less afraid of "themselves", we also have clan head Hiroomi. I look forward to season 2.
I like lots of KyoAni stuff and I like Sakura Trick.
Nigga, watch the OP/ED for the first and second seasons and tell me which season looks the most lewd.
If someone is complaining about fujoshi or fanbase wars, I think we need to stop listening to them now. This is the average KnK hater. I never understood the irrational hate, but I think I do now. They're literally angry retards.
Like I said, time to stop talking to the idiots.
Neither, though the first OP had at least a minimal lewdness I guess.
The second season has absolutely none, though that was expected. It's even more absurd seeing Deko's VOID in the ED instead of a flat chest that looks like it belongs to a human.
Would you a fluffy? How much fluffy is too much?
>dat accidental kiss which just goes to prove they don't enjoy kissing
>This is the average KnK hater.
More like kyoani hater, to be honest.
Of course. There is no limit to fluffy.
Shit direction, shit characters, shit story.
I think half of the haters are just mad Kyoani didn't make something they specifically they wanted.
Honestly, I couldn't believe the shitposting and "criticisms" people had of the show, especially towards the end, given how great the last few episodes were (outside the ending).
>Hurr it's shit because she changed direction mid air in the first episode, that's fucking stupid!
Yes they're super spirit warriors, they can basically fly.
She's the right amount of fluffy.
I'm not going to pass judgement on it until I see a second season, if there will be no second season then my opinion of the show will be 'unfinished'.
That one episode where Akkey is in a coma or some shit and he finds out Mirai died was probably my favourite.
Also, KyoAni MILFs.
Delicious girls, average show and bad writing.
I don't even remember when I dropped it, maybe around episode 7.
Don't try to justify your opinion by trash talking others.
The show was horrible, and it sold accordingly bad for a Kyoani show.
So fluffy, would hug.
You irritate me, faggot.
>That one episode where Akkey is in a coma or some shit and he finds out Mirai died was probably my favourite.
That's because they had their best director. That episode was fucking great. Everything from the cinematography, to the visual metaphors and that odd melancholy feel it had.
It reminded me a lot of Hyouka with how it was put together.
I don't get it really. For one guy to be this butthurt about kyoani making Free. Nobody told you to like it. It doesn't define the entire studio either. If there's a show that defines kyoani, that would be Haruhi. Hell, even FMP or Nichijou defines it more than Free.
Doesn't the fact that you're mad at kyoani for making Free and not something that would pander to your taste means you're expecting something from them? Why aren't you complaining that JC staff isn't making a show that panders to you? Or Shaft? Ot whatever studio?
Why are you so intent on proving that Kyoani is shit because they don't cater to your needs (let's even forget the fact that you're pirating their shows)?
Because you like kyoani and you're just mad that they're not going to pay attention to you. Well don't be, they don't really care about most gaijin anyway.
>Don't try to justify yourself by explaining why retards are obviously getting made
>Don't point out that their complaints are baseless and they're full of shit
>It sold well enough to make a decent profit and better than most shows, but it doesn't print K-On! money so it's shit
By your retarded logic Nichijou is among the worst they've made.
There are several types of people who like to hate on Kyoani for whatever reason.
When they air a show I don't like, I just don't watch it. When they make one I do like, I just hope they make more eventually.
It was alright
Bad for a kyoani show > average for everyone else
>I don't get it really. For one guy to be this butthurt about kyoani making Free. Nobody told you to like it. It doesn't define the entire studio either. If there's a show that defines kyoani, that would be Haruhi. Hell, even FMP or Nichijou defines it more than Free.
So why is there male service leaking everywhere lately?
Why wasn't there a SINGLE SERIES that catered to male fans as Free did to females?
No comebacks? That's what I thought.
>they don't really care about most gaijin anyway
That's cute, but I'm sure they care about Chuu2 2 not selling half of the first series.
Or wait, they probably don't, because they are already dripping wet from Free2, and they're so hyper they couldn't restraint themselves and already went on about how it's gonna be "even hotter than the first season".
Now that's a disgusting display of open sexualization promoting, from a studio that takes care not to do anything of the sort with girls.
Why? are you homo, or you don't lie girls being called delicious?
>given how great the last few episodes were (outside the ending).
That's why the ending was so bad. It essentially made the 'sacrifices' worthless and a waste of time for even caring about it in the first place.
It's fine to tease for another season, but cramming all that maybe bullshit into two episodes was just dumb.
Those girls were not even "alright" by anime standards.
But I guess a girl won't know the difference.
I saw how it was going to end from 10 miles away, so I was able to enjoy the hell out of the ride there. At least they properly explained it, and the episodes leading there were fucking great.
You're full homo.
There's been fujo content in KyoAni series for years.
Source material was a big factor in the creation of Free.
>So why is there male service leaking everywhere lately?
It always existed, you just never gave a shit until Free.
>Why wasn't there a SINGLE SERIES that catered to male fans as Free did to females?
Because most of their animators are female. If you were an artist, you'd draw more female fanservice. They are female, so they like to draw more male fanservice. That's just how it is.
Spoken like a true landwhale.
>Why wasn't there a SINGLE SERIES that catered to male fans as Free did to females?
Money. Females bit Free harder than a worm in a bait. Why would you pander to audience that can get it elsewhere? If you're looking for naked women, go to Highschool DxD or that zombie show. Or shaft. Or any other studio, really.
As much as it would go, k-on is the counterpart of Free for males in that it's all girls. If you're complaining because the Free's were naked and the k-on's weren't (or any other show) then you're full of shit. If you're just looking for fan service then please, just look for another show instead of bitching like a retard.
>Now that's a disgusting display of open sexualization promoting, from a studio that takes care not to do anything of the sort with girls
Yeah, here's a guy complaining that one studio isn't sexualizing girls enough. He calls the studio disgusting because they sexualize guys and he wants them to sexualize girls. Good job, man.
And there you go again with your expectations from kyoani. Just admit it man. You have a boner for kyoani and you just hate how they didn't pander to you. Like you were looking to fap on a vanilla doujin but you forgot to check the tags and got an NTR.
Spoken like a true shitposter.
I just want Kyoani to, instead of shitting in my face, do a little catering at least in shows that target males as well.
Yes, I never deny that I'm butthurt about the difference in treatment in regards to pandering, and why should I?
But just look at what they did to Chuu2 2.
Chuu2 2 has enough "sexualization" as sexualization would go. It's more than we ever got from s1, man. But come one, it wouldn't make sense to get them naked every episode. Free had the excuse that it was a swimming anime. Chuu2 2? Why on earth would they need to be sexualized?
Also, it's only been two cours since Free. Maybe you can hope for one in half a year or a whole year. If they don't then tough luck. It's not like the whole fujoshi fanbase got it in a day of wishing.
You're literally retarded.
But they did nothing, you're just seeing things.
Look at >>101065547. That OVA came out almost at the same time as Free. Chuu2's first ED has nothing, while the second has the girls naked. If anything they're doing the best they can to balance out the amount of pandering.
Besides, you seem to think Kyoani is one person. Free's director is indeed a raging fujoshi but she isn't directing Chuu2.
What do you think, that the fujoshits are conspiring against us? Calm the fuck down.
>Mirai coming back (although 100% explained within the show)
So what's the explanation ? Did i miss something ?
General consensus was DROPPED.
Those unfortunate or masochistic enough to stick with it to the end were greeted with something that exactly matched their extremely low expectations and yet still managed to be disappointing.
>more than we ever got from S1
No, that's not true. It's nowhere on par with season one.
If it would be, I'd have actually nothing against it.
That one Rikka in bed scene is NOT sexual, unlike the decent amoung ot lewd shots from season one, like >>101062278.
IGN pls go
It wasn't explained.
Don't lap up a blind defenders' every words.
It was KEY magic level of bullshit but without the buildup.
>That one Rikka in bed scene is NOT sexual
Well, at this point you aren't even trying to be objective.
Why retards like to response in threads they completely have no idea about?
>So what's the explanation ? Did i miss something ?
You're fucking kidding, right? She explicitly stated her soul is in her blood, that's how a version of her existed in Akkey's dream world, a drop of her blood got in him during the fight. All of her blood got absorbed into the KnK, then Akkey absorbed the whole KnK. With her entire "soul" inside him, he could being her back.
If people actually watched shows with their eyes open instead of rushing to /a/ to complain about shit they didn't get, there'd be a lot less arguing over perceived plot holes.
No one thinks the end was well done, but it was fully explained within the context of the story.
I was objective.
I guess there's no point trying to explain to someone who doesn't care about girls, and don't know what's sexual and what's not.
Nice little theory there, faggot. Too bad that's not what happened.
No, it wasn't explained, and no, that's just bullshit. As expected of an apologetic rabid fanboy.
Because they like to shitpost about things they haven't watched because studio fanbase wars are more fun for them than actually watching anime or having any sort of constructive discussion.
Except everything I just said was literally stated on screen, I don't understand how you're refuting this.
Oh wait, you're just a retard.
That's for overall /a/, not only here.
No that one's not explicitly explained as far as it goes. But it doesn't mean it doesn't have an explanation. These faggots just want everything crammed in in one show and shoved down their asses. There's an OVA coming, but with how most OVAs go, it's too much to hope for for an explanation there.
Season 2 is where the explanation would be.
I didn't get any of this from the ending either.
>hurr you're retard
No. It wasn't stated.
Stop making shit up, there was no explanation as per the official standpoint states. We have no idea what happened, and can only make up theories like you just did.
Like I said, don't lap up a blind fanboy's every words.
Can you get any more delusional? I invite you to go back and watch the ending. Transcribe it if you need to. None of what you said is explicitly stated.
Seriously. Is this how you got through this shit? By deluding yourself into thinking you were watching a better show?
>She explicitly stated her soul is in her blood
>a drop of her blood got in him during the fight
Ah, looks like i miss this part.
That would be how new KyoAni fans operate, yes.
It bring my hate to glasses even thought I wear it.
Then just stop replying to him and post fluffy
Ai was probably the one thing I enjoyed of the show most.
Everything else will fade away unless they do a second season that somehow patches up all the blindspots of the series.
>People who like KnK are NEW kyoani fans
I'm not even that anon but I liked KnK when I really have to choose a side. I've been watching their show for years minus Free and Tamago. So your statement is invalid.
What do you thin of this video?
Not watching it/10.
I thought you hate loli
You're full of shit paedophile
Her blood is inside him, that's how she's in his dream and can still communicate with him.
I'm not going to post screen caps to show how she got into the KnK, and how the KnK got into Akkey because that's clear as day.
The people saying it's all theory are retarded. If a show lays all the ground work then walks you to the conclusion, it doesn't need to dunk your head in the river and make you drink. As soon as she said this and Akkey absorbed the KnK it was obvious what would happen.
But anon, his statement can't be invalid. People who watch the show with their eyes open and pay attention are just new Kyoani fans that only want homolust and have never watched anything pre-Free.
Any real Kyoani fan makes it their duty to shitpost any new Kyoani show threads by complaining about things anyone who watched the show would know.
Except you're making things up.
Well, if that's the logic he made that statement with then I can't argue with that, I guess.
Ignore the retards.
>Literally posting screencaps
>Making things up
Ok, I'm done.
It was pretty good. Solid show/10.
I really liked the character interactions. Everything else was meh. The idol episode was great though
>Akkey absorbs KnK and it disappears from the world into him
>Mirai disappears as well b/c she and KnK were fused
>as KnK disappears so does she
>KnK is absorbed into Akkey so Mirai must also

Its almost like they spent Ep 10&11 setting up the method for her return, learn to pay attention.
Its ok, cry speculah now, we both know its the only argument you have
You're posting screencaps, draw your own conclusion or just the first conclusion that makes some sense, and claim it to be what happened when clearly there's no way to know and many other things could explain it.
In short, what you look upon as fact is what people call "headcanon". Get over yourself.
I rest my case.
>"unless a character stares directly into the camera and spells it out word for word it didn't happen"
Shounen-tier logic, you must love Naruto
Your conclusion != canon or a fact.
Never claimed canon or fact, you are the only one doing that you retard. Its ONE logical conclusion given the direct lead-up spelled out in episodes 10 and 11.
It's a logical conclusion, but there's no telling whether it happened or it was something else, ergo it wasn't explained.
I came to the same conclusion as the guy you're so vehemently refuting, it doesn't really need to be explicitly stated to be pretty fucking obvious. Are you being 100% sincere with your posts? I think I just got baited.
A logical conclusion can't be called a fact, especially when many series' writing if a trainwreck and don't make sense.
Just because you cant see what was directly stated in the show doesn't make it false. Akkey even stated almost word for word that it was his emotions that brought her back
Nope. Stop with this obnoxious bullshit.
This is why people hate a fandom.
Looks like this is the same guy form the EP 12 discussion threads. Same writing style, same arguments, same insults, same pseudo-logic, same buzzwords.
Over a month and he still hasnt figured out the ending. Thats sad
>when many series' writing if a trainwreck...
Made sense to me (more so than what you just posted), and nobody called it a fact, did they?
anon may have been embellishing the fact a bit, but only a bit. It was pretty obvious, everyone but you agrees apparently, at what point does it stop being 'some faggot's headcanon' to you?
But his arguments only work if they did so logically they must have.
Shit characters, shit story. One small sakuga scene per 3 or 4 episodes.
I want the money I haven't spent on this back.
I literally don't know what to make of this post, maybe you should use more commas or use less pronouns.
Story had potential.
Characters had potential.
Potential was wasted.
But nice animation.
When it gets canonical.
>this entire thread
Then you must think 90% of anime are pure shit
Oh, so close
It was fair to middling. It never lived up to its potential, as others have said, but it was entertaining as long as you didn't take it seriously.
im talking bout ghetto love
Its called a cliffhanger you leaking faucet. "Character X is supposed to be dead then in the last few seconds SUPRISE! They are alive!! How you ask? Come back next season to find out!"
I bet you read the last chapter of a book first don't you? Its pretty common in anime, watch some and find out
Mediocre. Coulda been great, but not well executed at all.
ED is awesome though.
>I hate this show and you disagree with me YOU MUST BE A FUJOSHIT
Good lord I couldn't even go halfway through this thread without cringing at all the shit arguments that you retards are coming up with just to hate this single show because you can't fap to it. I quit
Sorry but it's horrible writing, leaving the watcher hanging in the air.
The MC has a glasses fetish, that's it, that's his only characteristic. There's a scene with Mirai in his room and she finds a notebook of dates and pictures of girls wearing glasses. It's supposed to comedic I guess but the humor falls flat and the scene comes off as goddamn creepy. Why should we like the MC? Just like the anime, I dont
Exatcly. At least not as a director, the single episodes he directed are good.
that wasn't a comedic scene, it was to show how much he cared about Mirai.
>summer will be even hotter
At least use the correct quote and don't make up shit.
Top tier animation, but that's it.
Characters weren't much fleshed out, story wasn't that interesting and has some serious issues fitting in a single cour and the ending was a huge asspull reset happy ending.
That dude was the best.
>yfw he's a grown up version of yuuta from chuu2 and is imagining all the events of the snow
Junk Land is the greatest h-manga to be released in this decade.
One of those passing breezes through anime; gentle, soft, pleasant, forgettable if not for the awful ending. >>101054841
6/10, watchable if you have nothing better to do.
Ayaka is actually best, despite being an old hag.
Never I hope. Movie would be better.
I can't give it more than a 4/10. The characters were atrocious (except the black haired onii-chan) and the story was boring.
It's actually pretty good, but not great.
It had a lot of potential but I felt like it had a bit of an identity crisis. It was either the characters or the plot that had to exist, and KyoAni just couldn't juggle the two.
I actually would like to see more, but I'm not hopeful.
The idol part was awesome. Kyoani should make an idol anime.
