ARE YOU READY FOR THE GREATEST MASTERPIECE OF THE DECADE
It's going to be more generic than Nisekoi.
Is that a Gary Stu?
The joke is that Nisekoi is really generic.
>hayami saori voicing miyuki
I'm actually a little excited now
SAO will finally have a contender for the Most Overrated Piece of Shit Ever title. I wonder if SAO S2 can top this.
>contender for the Most Overrated Piece of Shit Ever title
Mahouka is not overrated, it's in the running for worst Gary Stu MC of all time.
Can Madhouse and incest save this???????
I am ready for the threads.
What's that over there?
Is that the script?
Mahouka is so fucking laughable, you niggas make me crack up
we're talking about tumblr fags who will say that Mahoka is the best anime and that only cool people can like it
>there are people who will actually unironically like this
>RLM will never do plinkett reviews of popular overrated anime
kill me now
I read 4 of the novels somehow
It's gonna be terrible
Even, I, as a novelfag, agree there are just some plain arcs that I wish were never written and the author is horrible at making actual good friends for the MC and his sister.
I'm too tired to type out my paragraphs again since there are no novelfags in this thread but last year, I had a fairly lengthy argument with other novelfags about this LN that ended up with them agreeing with me that Yokohome Arc was just pure shit, that the author really does suck about writing slice-of-life scenes or believable descriptions of hanging out with friends, how unlikable MC's classmates are, and that the best characters already graduated from the story while the shit ones remain behind in school.
I'm just ready for the music. And it looks like it's gonna be one of those shows were you watch it and forget threads exist.
>Trolling it before it even airs
OP is faggot.
>Regrowth - Allows complete recovery of any form of damage/injury. It is not a form of recovery magic; instead, by reverse-reading the records of the Eidos, copying the past information of the target and directly overwriting it, he is able to make the injury "not have existed in the first place".
>Decomposition - Decomposes material into atoms. Has been used by Tatsuya to unarm hundreds of soldiers from their guns at once.
>Material Burst - Decomposes substances into pure energy following E=MC², almost like an atomic bomb. Actually produces more energy than an atomic bomb, as energy is not lost to collisions between electrons and positrons like in annihilation reactions.
>Elite martial artist by world standard. His physical ninja skills are so impressive people thinks they are spells, when they're just his natural parameters.
>Elite class strategist by world standards
>Incredible speed at releasing magic, elite of the elite by world standards. Can essentially eliminate the buffer time completely
>Nearly unlimited magic supply
>Eyes analyze magic, allows him to cancel spells.
>The worlds greatest magic technology engineer
>His crippling flaws are that he's merely "average" in looks and suffers from weakened emotions, making him the cool badass stoic character. He also is bad at baby tier spells, making people discriminate against him.
I haven't read this. Is there actually any valid criticism (eww incest, [incest tv tropes buzzword] and generic are not valid statements of criticism).
And stay there.
I remember such a discussion. And no, not everyone agreed with you. Flaws exists, but the whole is not completely flawed. There are lots of pros besides the cons. I'm not even going to get into it since it'd take hours, but I'll say are still decent and interesting characters left among the cast. And also new characters in the 2nd year like Mayumi's imoutos, who are great and have fun interactions.
I hope your anime is as poorly adapted as SAO's. Or pretty much every LN out there, for that matter.
another series that attempts to have smart characters but the author isn't smart enough to actually write them correctly
hence the Gary Stu / Mary Sue main character combo
Come back to me when you can make a quality post that doesn't use a troll copypasta used to make it all sound retarded and oh so perfect and herp derp.
Proof, because no one in the thread defended Yokohama Arc and after I showed the contradictions that were evident in the arc, even fanboys agreed with me that there was a whole lot of asspulls and inconsistency with Yokohoma Arc.
I'll stick to the LN. Thanks.
I am. Come at me.
>That Garupan director
>No 2 years worth of gloppage
Call me when they make Blood-C 2
I love the books in a so bad it's good way.
I guess the world building is fine and I like some of the girls (there's a shitload of characters, so it's shouldn't be surprising).
Still, the MC would make the Navy Seals copypasta guy look like a wimp. It's hilarious how much bullshit he pulls. I can't even call him a Gary Stu, he's something beyond it.
That's not how I remembered it or we're talking about a different thread. If you have the link, please provide it.
having read the LNs, I'm sure the anime will be disappointing but still, im watching for the lovely uniforms/designs/student council president. I just hope they find a suitable voice for her
What's wrong with Madhouse?
Not GuP but Saki and Horizon.
>HxH done in a few weeks
>Madhouse will be able to give a fuck about a new show
Not you again. You really aren't going to let this go and will troll this to the ground, won't you? Making threads implying MASTERPIECE and other threads implying GARY STU SO SHIT ever since the anime got announced. Your samefags and pasta in these threads never changes.
I hope the better part of the fanbase will be able to ignore you and keep their shit together despite all the trolling and shitposting you'll help generate.
They are the epitome of hit or miss. they have shows that are elder god tier and then they also have made some of the lowest of the low shit
Madhouse is a great studio and the Saki/Horizon director is a great director, what the fuck are you talking about?
I don't get it so what is the point of this, just to watch mc steamroll everyone?
There are a lot of cons like how the author spends time hyping a party or celebration only to always end with just one paragraph or less description of the event which is actually very disappointing when that happens because slice-of-live events like parties or celebrations give a chance for the author to show a different side of a side-characters' portrayal in the story you never get a chance to see when they are in front of the MC.
For example, maybe seeing Juumonji being forced to sing karaoke in front of the crowd will show the reader that Juumonji is not as tight a wad as you think he is and even he will let loose from time to time.
However, such scenarios will never occur because the author always just has Miyuki appear, drag Tatsuya to some place outside, have them talk with each other, and the story thus ends then and there.
Hell, look how disappointing the seniors' graduation party turned out to be.
We just get treated to reading about Tatsuya just sitting outside a hall for the senior graduation party with barely any description of the seniors at the party aside from Lina singing songs for the seniors as party entertainment from a 3rd party in a boring one-liner.
And this is funny because the LN illustration for this chapter shows Linda jamming it out and supposedly having formed a rock band of some sort yet the novel, itself, never tells us what kind of song Linda sang or if he formed a band or not and if the illustrator actually illustrated this specific chapter, it would just show Tatsuya just sitting outside.
Talk about boring.
Don't even get me started how an author could write such a boring Halloween Party, either.
>So Jay, what did you think of that last episode of Infinite Stratos S2?
>All I have to say about the ending is that it was a thing I finished, and had an opinion about. Just like the summer hit that's great for all families, including those affected by mass amounts of radiation, Grown Ups 2!
>[COUGHING BLOOD INTENSIFIES]
Madhouse is only good if they do original works. They're the worst along with J.C. Staff if we talk about adaptations.
The Saki and Horizon director is good, but this is Madhouse we are talking here. Even he can't pull off a miracle.
Shows that you know nothing.
>Navy Seals copypasta
Needs one for the MC.
>What the fuck did you just fucking say about Miyuki, you little bitch? etc.
Of course it's lack that.
The more the time the story spends NOT on the gary stu, the less the gary stu can take the spotlight for no fucking reason.
This story is basically everything wrong with LNs in one giant horrifying clusterfuck.
Works for Kazuma no Stigma.
>Actually taking that write up seriously
Not to say the MC isn't overpowered and hax. He has reasons to be so.
I'm still mad over the 9 schools tournament afterparty.
And one for Tatsuya.
>What the fuck did you just fucking say about my Onii-sama you little bitch? I'll have you know etc.
Also needs a "My name is Tatsuya, and I hate every single one of you."
>Madhouse is only good if they do original works.
Kaiji, Akagi, Needless, Gunslinger Girl, Cardcaptor Sakura, Death Note, Hajime no Ippo, Galaxy Angel, One Outs, fuck I could be here all day
>Not to say the MC isn't overpowered and hax. He has reasons to be so.
Doesn't matter if there are reasons, an invicible protagonist is BORING. Someone who steamrolls everyone is BORING.
Unfortunately LNs are stuck in this echo chamber where they can make shit and people still eat it up. And so nobody with actual talent gets into the scene.
>hasn't read it
>knows nothing about it
this is literally gary stu the show, he makes 11/10 weapons
does 11/10 magic
sister wants to fuck him
friends want to fuck him
everyone wants to fuck him
stops time and he cant be hurt
more like 2+months and possibly more if they do the mini arc after CA, also netero just died so they might have to find a new VA
So if SAO was the first big webnovel that made it, and it was terrible.
And Mahouka was the next big webnovel that made it, and it's even more terrible.
Does that mean that the next big webnovel to be picked up will be even worse? And the next worse still?
Well anon there has already been another web LN anime announced, I'll let you be the judge
Looks like Precure with less substance and more boobs.
what the fuck
well im a fucking idiot, honestly thought that was her forearms
Most of those cons are valid, BUT you can't say the LN doesn't do that at all. Look at Mayumi, she does get focus that fleshes her and show sides to her that we don't often see. Even without, she's already an interesting character and her interactions are a joy to read. How she plays into Tatsuya plans, her father's plans, and plans of other groups is always something that keeps developing.
See here, Shizuku is my favorite girl and I'm still waiting on her arc that has been setup a couple of volumes back. Her family and their involvement has been foreshadowed, so one only needs to wait and see.
Your face when Erika, Leo, and Miki abuse Tatsuya like hell and act like they are tough shit and think they are invincible when Tatsuya or Miyuki always ends up bailing or saving their asses at the last minute yet they never learn from their near-death experience and continue going after opponents clearly beyond their league.
I also like how they pretend they got stronger in magecraft when in reality, they are just getting better state of the art magic equipment never released to the public from Taurus Silver, himself, and if the trio got back their original generic equipment, it would show them just how little they improved from a year ago.
Taking all this into consideration, it really does feel like Tatsuya babies the fuck out of Erika, Leo, and Miki.
Tatsuya shelters them from reality which is why the trio treats legitimate enemies who outclass them by miles as just video game bosses because right when you finally think Erika, Leo or Miki are gonna get attacked by a spell or fist/leg/blade and finally showing these naive losers that they can actually die on this very street or battlefield, Tatsuya emerges out of nowhere, you hear the Bang of his pistol shaped CADs, and then, instead of the "spanking" Erika, Leo, and Miki really should have gotten ages ago so they know the meaning of humility, they actually just breathe a sigh of relief right then and there, and are all smiles because Tatsuya has come to bail them once again and the trio can continue to keep their inflated big egos for yet another time.
It just pisses the fuck out of me that Tatsuya has to risk so much of his secret getting leaked out because of the trio.
He has to come dashing out in the middle of the night whenever Leo, Erika, or Miki cause trouble that gets too big for them and he risks his classfied military magic to save them from enemies too big for the trio to handle.
The trio knows how badly Tatsuya needs to keep his secret yet they continue to cause trouble for him without regard.
Yeah that's what I was gonna ask
>dat back breaking boob/butt pose front and center.
Good good just looking at that makes me cringe.
OP baiting aside, I don't care if the MC rarely meets a challenge. I have no issues with such character, especially not after reading Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou.
I enjoy MKnR for the characters, warring military situations that contrasts the school setting, and the complex-as-hell-but-interesting magic system.
I was eagerly awaiting to hear Tatsuya's victory speech or for 1st High to really congratulate Tatsuya at the afterparty but my wish never materialized because the novel just ends right fucking there before the AFTERPARTY even begins.
Hell, we don't even get to read about Tatsuya getting handed a trophy or medal or anything like that. No description of confetti flying everywhere, either.
Such a thing really just kills the joy in reading.
The afterparty happened.
>oh god more technobabble (you are keeping up, right?)
>MC stomps the pitiable villain
>technobabble explaining how he did it
For the love of all that is holy, let her sing.
Oh boy, let me guess from left to right:
>generic library girl, ends up with black haired dude
>MC's bro, doesn't get any girl
>generic tomboy with unrequited feelings for MC
>generic harem MC
>generic slightly shy kuudere, main girl
>generic dandere with a few forced joke lines/moments
Actually, I think the redhead and the tall guy hook up, in one of those "frienemies" kind of relationship. Arguing all the time but have the hots for each other. I'll give the story credit for having one girl who's not wet for the MC.
Maybe, she also ships MC and his sister.
He gets orange.
Nope. She also has feelings for MC, confesses, gets shot down, and still likes him until she finds another guy.
Ughh did you even read the book
The afterparty with all 9 high schools and their sponsors was not an actual afterparty where Tatsuya the MVP gets obligated to make a victory speech of some sorts.
Before the First High Afterparty can begin, the novel just ends right then and there.
Just right when we are given a statement that 1st High was about to party very hard.
You know what I'm ready for? Another anime that will have a good season and never have a sequel that closes up the story because they want you to read the ln instead.
Is this the new Infinite Stratos / SAO equivalent? Because if it is, I'm ready to ignore everything about this show with utmost prejudice.
These are wrong.
>sister wants to fuck him
It's something, right?
Erika and Leo don't hook up.
Did you even read the Lina Arc and how angry and displeased Erika got over Tatsuya's focus on Lina?
Erika was so moody that even her glasses-wearing friend had to force Erika to confront her feelings and this is when you learn that Erika always wants to be in Tatsuya's sights all the time and doesn't everwant to be ignored by him.
Not only that but Miki entrusts Tatsuya and not Leo to protect Erika. from the upcoming potential conflict with her dead mother's family, the Rosen Corporation.
If anything, the Erika x Leo flag is getting weaker with each volume release and the Erika x Tatsuya flag getting stronger.
Hell, right in the first volume, Erika was already making an exception for Tatsuya.
In later volumes, we learn how flaky a person Erika is and then for the first time in her life, she made an appointment with a friend to go look at the clubs during Club Recruitment Day.
It's not, but trolls and/or haters will want you to believe it is. There's no similarity and comparing this to either those is utterly retarded.
Guy this is so much worse then IS/SAO combined.
The MC is literally a tactical Nuclear Weapon/God of Balence who can fuck you up with one hand and heal you with the other.
So he's awesome like Nanoha?
Actually it's not much of a harem. There's plenty of OTPs, MC's bro has his girl, and there's only 1 girl who is outright in love with MC. Then there's his sister and Mayumi, but Mayumi will probably end up with Juumonji and his sister could end up with that guy whose name I can't remember and hurts Tatsuya in the tournament.
Nanoha has to try a lot harder than this guy.
No when I mean Tactical Nuclear Weapon I mean he can look at something and create a nuclear explosion with no effort whatsoever which is only limited by his ability to see. However that weakness is overcome by the fact indirect vision also works.
Also Nanoha cannot resurrect people, just befriend them
How am I supposed to self insert into this if all the girls are taken?
That sounds awesome.
>His crippling flaws are that he's merely "average" in looks and suffers from weakened emotions, making him the cool badass stoic character
i actually cringed
99% sure Tats can't do that. You sure you read the LN, brah?
You enjoy enjoy a platonic relationship with your imouto who really wants to suck your dick, but you don't let her.
Sounds like something a 12-year-old thought up while trying to make an original character who could beat Superman or something.
If they're dead for less then a couple of seconds it's simple rewinding the flow of time and copying the information or whatever bullshit his heal comes up with. As long as with his weakened emotional response he can beat back the feedback. NO PROBLEM
Tatsuya vs Accel
You mean Batman?
Tatsuya wins easy.
...Those aren't his flaws, you know. Not the emotion part anyways. The pasta is wrong, it's not weakened, they're are killed. He IS supposed to be a solider/guardian, so it only makes him a better for the job he's given.
Also he's one of the greatest Magi-engineering Minds the world has ever known.
Pretty sure his emotions haven't been completely eliminated.
His sister and mother didn't die. They were still alive. He can't rez the dead. His limits only goes so far as 24 hours too.
They are except one, which is the love for this imouto. And that was done by his mother so that he can protect her since she's the next head of the house. It's all for political gain and shit so that their house will stay at the top of the 10 houses.
The other "emotions" we see him have are only him acting more than anything, so he can blend in and whatnot. Just think of Hei from Darker than Black. It's kinda like that.
Last I heard there was an American Super weapon that wanted his dick too, what did she do again?
Well the love for imouto was what I meant.
Pure platonic love for imouto that prevents him from doing anything no matter how much she throws herself at him you mean.
Serious reply here. Accelerator would win. Tats can't do anything against something like vector manipulation and reduction. Awakened Accelerator with his hax filter that can updates things not from this world is overkill.
Depends on the range? Does Full Power Accelerator have the reaction speed to completely redirect the forces of every atom in his head exploding?
He actually can resurrect the dead but Tatsuya hasn't done it enough to know the true limits and conditions to allow the dead person to stay alive.
For example, his mother's bodyguard basically used her life force to construct a magic shield to save both her and Tatsuya from a nuke blast that occurred just a few miles offshore from the coast where Tatsuya was standing.
If the bodyguard had not done that and just stayed behind with Miya and Miyuki like she was suppose to and didn't use any super big magic at all, she may have very well survived.
Now, we don't know if she died from exhausting all her "prana" to construct a nuke-proof magic barrier or if she died because Tatsuya's resurrection magic was still immature.
And dying from magic exhaustion has happened to other people like Tatsuya's grandfather who used too much of his Death Note like magic where he uses a knife and makes enemies imagine their throats got slashed to the extent they actually imagine themselves to death so yeah.
The author left it ambiguous. The bodyguard might have been able to remain alive if she got a chance to rest after being resurrected and didn't have to use such a demanding exhausting magic required to survive a nuke blast.
Really looking forward to this one.
Its going to be really good and its going to sell but /a/ will probably hate it.
Better question, what would happen if Tatsuya was exposed to Imagine Breaker?
Don't listen to that faggot who denies this is a harem.
Lina is pretty much in love with Tatsuya.
Her arc is pretty much reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet as well.
Also, Mayumi finds herself defending Tatsuya in front of her father without thinking and when Tatsuya tells Mayumi that he would eat her up, Mayumi just goes beet red and doesn't sit down next to Tatsuya until 10 minutes later.
Miyuki wants Tatsuya to do dirty things to her.
She even says only Tatsuya is allowed to look and touch her naughty places.
Doesn't matter, but Accelerator does have the greater speed advantage. He can go faster than supersonic. And none of Tatsuya's decomposition magic is going to actually touch Accelerator. The only thing that might be effective is his MB, but we can't say for sure if that will work against Accelerator. If Accelerator can pervert teleporters from warping passing his vector field, then it's possible trying to convert matter to energy from the other dimension won't work..
Tatsuya never refuses Miyuki's advances.
Quit lying your ass off. It is only something like a phone call at the last minute or an interruption from somewhere that prevents Tatsuya and Miyuki from moving past sibling love.
Tatsuya never does anything like grab Miyuki's shoulders and saying we can't do that because we are siblings.
I will watch and enjoy everything with an Iwasaki soundtrack, even Mahouka.
>Mayumi will probably end up with Juumonji
Not gonna happen. Mayumi's father doesn't like Juumonji because he can't use Juumonji as he pleases.
Mayumi wants Mayumi to have a "puppet" husband which would allow him to still influence Mayumi's decisions and choices even after she marries into another family.
Remember arranged marriages are all about the political and economic wishes and ambitions of the parents and not the children at all.
If this doesn't end with imouto winning or platonic relationship with imouto then I think Mayumi could win, but I'm sure she'll somehow end up with Juumonji if she doesn't pull an upset in the Tatsuya bowl.
>and his sister could end up with that guy whose name I can't remember and hurts Tatsuya in the tournament.
The fact you can't remember that guy's name shows how desperate you are to deny that this is not a harem story.
Sorry but if Muyuki is ever gonna marry someone, it would be someone who is either the Prime Minister of Japan or the Bill Gates of Japan because the Yotsuba only pairs up the best males and females of Japan to produce the strongest children.
That faggot whose name you can't even remember has pretty much zero political or economic benefit for the Yotsuba.
His family's influence is only at a local town level and they aren't that rich either.
But Juumonji doesn't even seem like he wants to marry Mayumi.
He even tells Tatsuya he should marry Mayumi after the 9 Schools Tournament is over.
And how could Mayumi end up with Juumonji if Mayumi's father knows that Juumonji could use Mayumi against him?
Mayumi has a higher chance of ending with a male that her father can actually push around which benefits Mayumi's father more than someone who could ignore his wishes like Juumonji.
If anything, Mayumi will be married off to a male of a family or clan who are either subordinates or supporters of Mayumi's dad not someone who is clearly an outsider like Juumonji whose family clearly disapproves of Mayumi's dad's way of running things.
>All them females
>Mass retarded harem reasons
>2 dudes used only for comedy proposes
Is this the one where a bunch of high schoolers defeat an entire Chinese army
Whoa there faggot. First of all, learn some reading comprehension. Not much of a harem is not denying it is a harem. It's just fairly weaker compared to others since not every single girl that appears wants the MC's dick like other harems.
Second, I said COULD. I did not say she would, I said it is a possibility that that faggot could end up winning her over and getting some character development if imouto somehow doesn't end up with Tatsuya.
Third, why the fuck should I remember his name when a)the last time I read this was a long time ago and b)the series doesn't stand out from the average shitty self-insert garbage other than an overpowered MC.
You seem to be focusing far too much on the political bullshit when that is not the focus. Of course if their world was realistic your logic would make sense, but there's plenty of OTPs in this and political crap is not going to stop them.
And really just because Juumonji says Tatsuya should marry Mayumi does not mean those are his actual feelings. This is common as fuck stuff with characters not being able to voice their true feelings.
The 2 dudes aren't really likeable in the first place and the author asspulls a lot of bullshit to make them relevant in the story.
Like Leo keeps getting new powers every volume out of nowhere.
He went from a guy who is really good at reinforcing magic due to genetics into apparently becoming a werewolf in disguise and no, I am not kidding.
This reveal of Leo was just cringe-inducing to read.
The author wants Leo to somehow be on the same level as Tatsuya but instead of actually writing how Leo improves his magic by studying in the library or going into the deep archive to research restricted magic information, the author just goes oh wait, did I ever tell you guys Leo is a werewolf or how Leo can eat anything and not get fat or Leo can hear people's thoughts somehow even though there was zero foreshadowing of Leo being capable of doing such things beforehand?
Next thing, you know Leo is actually gonna transform into a wolf for real.
Fuck, I'd kill for Leo to be replaced by Juumonji and have Leo be the guy who graduates while Juumonji remains as Tatsuya's rival as a fellow first year.
>but there's plenty of OTPs in this and political crap is not going to stop them.
Confirmed for ignoring the setting of this story in favor of being a shipfag when the author spends so much time building the setting.
Politics is everything in this LN.
The fact you think political crap doesn't affect the characters and their decisions shows how you don't deserve to read this story at all and only care about shipping.
For someone who claims this story doesn't stand out from the garbage you read, you sure feel strongly over someone telling you that your OTP won't work and is unrealistic.
>Tatsuya frantically tried using ‘Regrowth’, but soon realised it was futile.
>Even though he could rewind material matter, his power was helpless to turn back the clock of life.
Kinda vague, yeah. But several years later and it doesn't seem like he can bring someone who died back to life still. It probably has to do with "life" that's spiritual and connected to that dimension of spirits/souls/etc.
>girl at the very right
I prefer Tatsuya and Mayumi getting together but you know that's not happening. And just because the author puts some effort into the setting doesn't mean he can't write a bunch of bullshit to get past the politics. You act like there won't be more asspulls and terrible writing in the future.
But he has the akashic records.
Not really. The way Tatsuya sees the world using his ES is kinda like how Neo sees the world when he's in the matrix. Though not in 1s and 0s, but in whatever Eidos looks like.
Besides. It's it the aunt that has the equivalent of Akashic Records?
Aunt x Tatsuya pairing is the most perfect OTP in this LN.
Hell, she even says she wants to make Tatsuya into a worthy man and become the next "Saint".
And the way they interact with each other is like a BDSM play.
Finally, a woman on equal trolling level as Tatsuya and she is his aunt of all people.
Author should have done a different incest story.
Instead of the common brother sister incest story, he should have went for something unique like an aunt nephew incest story.
Except both wouldn't bat an eye at killing the other if given the right chance.
But denpa onna. There's also that thing where the aunt is a loli but I don't think that counts.
Common or not, hottest incest is always sis/bro. Aunt is...too old. Disregarding that though, it wouldn't work. His aunt hates him and only sees him only as a tool for Miyuki's sake. Whether or not he's deemed as still useful depends on Tatsuya's schemes. Both of them know that they hate each other and it's only a matter of time until one of them offs the other. She won't hesitate to kill him if the time has come to do so, and she's seemingly one of the people who can put him down if she tries.
Learn to love your Christmas cakes faggot.
>His aunt hates him
It is like you never read the novels and listen to the conversations between Tatsuya and his aunt.
Tatsuya's aunt enjoys her conversations with Tatsuya.
When she is along with her butler guardian, she even praises Tatsuya and this is where we learn she is planning on making Tatsuya the next "Saint".
How does it feel to be an uncultured pleb?
She's not doing that because she likes him.
She just finds him useful at the moment.
An aunt doesn't have to be old, you know. There are a few times where she's younger than her niece/nephew.
Remain in denial.
She even tells Tatsuya how refreshing he is by speaking so frankly to her after getting kissed up to by people all day.
I stand by what I said. Aunt's body is fucked up and can't even reproduce because of the rapes and experiments she went through when she was 12. So what's the point?
Come on, anon. You know that's all banters and facade. She doesn't like him, but still finds him useful. That's all.
Yeah but not in this case.
>Anon getting fooled by Maya
Oh come on.
You really think Maya has forgiven Miya? Hell no.
>Implying artificial wombs don't exist.
Miyuki's new female guardian was pretty much just a test tube baby.
Also, implying sex needs to be for procreation.
>Implying Tatsuya's sperm isn't as hax as he is and will impregnate any women in one go.
Right after launching a attack meant to kill him!
She's using him because quite frankly, she can't get rid of him. She has to make Miyuki the next head just to keep him in line.
Her entire reproductive system is gone, man. Gone.
>/a/non gotten fooled by rumors about Maya
>/a/non not seeing Maya's true intentions and personality and that Demon of the East is just a facade to outsiders.
Just wait for the inevitable volume cover with Maya and Tatsuya with Maya's arms draped over Tatsuya's neck and Tatsuya looking like a Dark Knight
If something like that does happens, then I'll eat my keyboard. We'll have to just wait and see then.
Tatsuya is already making magic bullets capable of attacking the "soul" or the equivalent of ghosts.
>Implying Tatsuya can't impregnate Maya's spiritual womb
>Implying Tatsuya can't rebuild a womb from scratch
You know in first volume, Miyuki killed Tatsuya as well?
Tatsuya's regeneration only actives when severe harm has been done to him and after getting home from school, Miyuki temporarily froze him to death after she couldn't contain her jelly of Tatsuya looking like he was hitting on Mari and Suzune and etc, right in front of her, and was jealous how they seemed to have bigger boobs than her.
What Miyuki and Maya did to Tatsuya were only acts of harsh love.
This. I was really looking forward to Volume 5 finally evening out the pace and actually using the characters for fun.
You wouldn't think there could be a volume called "Summer Holiday Chapter" and the novels would still have exactly the problem you described.
But that sounds like something only Batman ca–– Wait a minute.
Different anon here.
>first volume, Miyuki killed Tatsuya
Wat. When did this happened?
I'm really interested in reading this now. Through out the years I've always heard this was terrible, but then again when I hear someone call something shit I take it very lightly. Is this really as bad as people make it out to be? I don't consider SAO or SnK terrible (just putting it out there since I hear these two getting compared to this a lot). I thought SAO was average. I don't think I will ever rewatch it again, but I've seen worse. And I actually really like the SnK manga.
Liberties of manga.
You won't get your answer here because opinions, etc. You can always read it to form your own opinion. I'll warn you though the LN is not for a light read especially if you're the type who dislike heavy expositions.
Nobody should read the manga over the LN. People should only read it after having read the LN to see how badly the manga fucks up.
I think the MC is less hateable than Kirito. It's neither as edgy nor as unique as SnK's setting, but for some that's a good thing.
Pick your reason to hate it:
>Gary Stu MC
>Incest subtext (which never goes anywhere)
>Poor use of supporting cast
>So much explanation that it bogs down the battles, arguably one of the only highlights
>The masturbatory/fanfic feel to the text.
Kirito isn't even a character that warrants the kind of hate he often gets. He's actually a cool, down to earth kinda guy and is just simple, but has eager desire. Essentially, he's quite likable. Seriously, the ridiculous bashing I see always makes me facepalm. It never helps that ainme's poor presentation and execution for some of his scenes makes him look like he's asspulling, so people always go by that instead of the real LN Kirito.
People don't hate him for his personality. They hate him for how he's written.
for example, if he's not a Gary Stu, he still warps the narrative in a similar way to one.
Or at least, that's why I don't like him.
>friends want to fuck him
Thank god for the doujin so I can get right to the sisterfucking and skip everything else.
SAO 3.0 right?
I see the latest few books as including a bunch of subtle Mayumi-Tatsuya flags. Although the series isn't even at its midpoint yet, so that could all change.
Tate no Yuusha is pretty good.
MC kinda looks like Kirito, is it more closer to Index or SAO?
You can see how all the characters are written just by looking at them.
You have the cold, confident MC,
the sincere and caring imouto,
the energetic red-head,
the klutzy friend with a large rack,
the one who doesn't talk and sleeps during class,
the comedy relief sidekick to MC who is full of honor and bravado,
the other male who is even more distant than MC and is against imouto-chan-kun's best friend's attempts to get into his pants while herself being a shy but hard working girl who does well in her studies.
>You have the cold, confident MC,
>the sincere and caring imouto,
Not so correct... Well, she just like that... but almost yandere teir.
>the energetic red-head,
>the klutzy friend with a large rack,
>the one who doesn't talk and sleeps during class,
>the comedy relief sidekick to MC who is full of honor and bravado,
>the other male who is even more distant than MC and is against imouto-chan-kun's best friend's attempts to get into his pants while herself being a shy but hard working girl who does well in her studies.
Look like too many guys for harem.
At least it helps promote the series. They can hate all they want.
>the other male who is even more distant than MC and is against imouto-chan-kun's best friend's attempts to get into his pants while herself being a shy but hard working girl who does well in her studies.
I laughed harder than I should.
Isn't this more generic haremshit?
>Erika x Leo flag is getting weaker
>You can't make me pregnant. Come inside all you want.
Holy fuck Kagerou Days has some high numbers. Didn't even know it had an LN, only knew about the PVs/Manga/Anime adaptation. Sadly a large part of the plot is composed of hardcore edge.
A few years back, I picked up a trashy grocery store romance novel just for shits and giggles. SAO and Mahouka LNs, actually most LNs, are pretty much the Jap equivalent
Basically giving the readers that are angry about their lot in life some self-indulgent, shameless mental masturbation. That's why it doesn't focus on side characters or steal the spotlight from the MC, because that would be frustrating to the person engaging in self-indulgence. It really does read like 3rd-rate fanfiction, which is exactly why I'm planning to watch other stuff. If I want self-indulgence, I'll stick with porn, which is far more satisfying in the long run.
Remember how people unironically like SAO? Well this shit makes SAO look like a genuine goddamn masterpiece.
Spot on, but what about all the technobabble? The novels read like technical manuals.
>ARE YOU READY FOR THE GREATEST MASTERPIECE OF THE DECADE
That is not Madoka season 2, you post the wrong picture.
I read mahouka for the magic explanations. I love starts series starts going into details on how it's mechanics work. Negima did it a lot too and it was delicious.
The name is close enough.
Another one of those.
>they're the worst if we talk about LN adaptations
fixed that for you
I just hope the shitposting won't be so much that it'll be hard to ignore.
Abandon all your senses /a/, the SAO legion & Kirino worshipers will kneel down and caress this with their eyes. Their mouths will dribble on wincest and Gary Stu, the mikasa fans will want to be their godly male counterpart personified again. The rivers of /a/ will overflow in blood and many will suffocate under the shit posting that is yet to come.
The fans will come, and they will troll hard.
So just another season on /a/
OP here, so sorry, moot fucked up again and replaced my image with some bullshit.
This thread is supposed to be about Tamako Love Story, obviously.
Yeah but this will be the big cheese, everyone saying how OP MC is, is the foreshadowing truth. The bait most likely in the shows description will be the fact he can't use magic. Well don't worry, author has him covered, people will be fascinated how he was so weak, and then continually gets stupidly stronger, there will be so many posts about this, it's not going to be pretty.
I still think this will be like Horizon/AW and not SAO in terms of popularity on /a/. The normalfag hype isn't there for whatever reason. If Madhouse do a good job with it, the shitposting will disappear by the fourth episode.
>Half way into the second book
>Every scene thus far has been about showing how perfect MC is.
When does this stop?
no matter how weak the flag gets you know those two will end up together: tatsuya cannot understand love and when erika will finally confess he will reject her in 2 seconds. then leo will console her and you know what happens next
I'm actually looking forward to this show just to see how much of a shitstorm it causes.
The L:N never stops fapping about his amazingness. I hope this show doesn't generate that hype, but I can imagine people wanting to vicariously be like this Gary Stu in their own lives, and this escapism is a snare just as strong as an mmo setting.
What made the novel interesting for me was the magic mechanics, but that doesn't make good anime, it's all blurted out by him deconstructing his thoughts in one go. Pacing is off, MC character growth hardly exists, what will save me through this airtime is the fact I'm all for wincest, but they are both basically another Mary Sue and Gary Stu pair, and we already went through that all too recently.
Fuck it is clear /a/ would become complete shit when this Naruto 2.0 airs, but i did not soon it`ll happen so soon, a season before.
Narutard, please go.
It is dead, just like Gainax. Studio Mappa is its Trigger.
I hope Mahaoka "fanbase" stays on MAL and Tumblr and take you with them.
Just wait until Japanese start adapting cell phone novels into anime.
>i enjoy MKnR since i am from tumblr
fixed it for you
Don't even joke like this
But it already has. It's called Attack on Titan.
Why would anon (shitposters doesn't count) Mahouka is like SAO?
It doesn't pander with something normalfaggy like video games and virtual reality
Theme is Magic academy, near/alternative future and incest -> Raildex/IS/Oreimo
None of these is as mainstream as SAO.
Worse, far worse. And if its not bad enougth, it airs along with Black Bullet anime too.
At least Elfen Lied 2 will be decent in spring.
Nowadays in the anime industry most of the shows aren't than because the studio wanted.
Log Horizon was also a Web Novel, by the way.
Explains why its so terrible. Author fails to recreated the imaginative and great story and characters which he achived in team work with 2ch making Maoyuu.
2ch Novels > Web Novels
Black Bullet is "edgy", but its nowhere as bad as Mahaoka.
Oh yes, the Magic system seems interesting. There's no doubt about that.
But that's its ONE saving grace, considering how the entire story orgasms at MC's greatness.
Yes, SAO had a few scenes that were meant to only show how badass MC was, but Mahouka takes it to another level, and dedicates the entire thing to this, while at the same time pretending he's "Average".
Japanese love it though, since it blatant "NIPPON STRONKK!!11" story of "average" Japanese person destroying all evil foreigners.
Gary Stu MCs are not necessary a bad thing - see Mondaijitachi, loved by /a/ and MC actually amusing and utilizing his powers to make show even better.
Problem with Mahaoka is not MC being living god, but overall horrible fanfic level writing.
PS. I only bring up SAO, because they share the same publishers, and because apparently they asked Reki (SAO's Author) to give a few words on the story, seeing as he's also a Web Novel author.
Reading through his words, it looks awkward as hell, and makes me wonder if he was forced to. He doesn't talk about the actual story, other than the fact that the Author was very fast in writing it all, and how MC and his sister is OTP. The rest is about other stuff...
This is why we can't have nice things.
If Mahouka ever ends up outselling Slayers and Guin Saga I'm going to be very sad.
Look at this shit /a/
Look at it
Who the fuck acts like that? I'M IN LOVE WITH ONII CHAN
WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU IN LOVE WITH ONII CHAN
THAT'S YOUR FUCKING CHARACTER
THAT'S ALL THE CHARACTERS IN THIS FUCKING SERIES ARE DEFINED BY
THEIR RELATION TO GARY STU
THEY EITHER HATE GARY STU AND WANT TO FUCK HIS SUPER SPECIAL RICH WAIFU
OR THEY WANT TO FUCK GARY STU BECAUSE THEY'RE SUPER SPECIAL WAIFUS THEMSELVES
EVEN LEONHART IS DEFINED BY HOW HE WANTS A SUCK OF TATSUYA'S COCK
I HATE THIS
THESE CHARACTERS AREN'T HUMAN FUCKING BEINGS
Thought I'd do this copypasta since it seems to be compared to SAO a bit. Also, I guessed with Leonhart since he was one of other two guy characters for the MC cast.
Since there are so many mixed opinions I guess I have no choice but to watch the first episodes even though I know it's going to be really bad.
From what I read in this thread, can MC fuck a girl, then regenerate her hymen and remove the cum from inside of her by time warping?
Someone could create a endless lopping doujin with that.
>Material Burst - Decomposes substances into pure energy following E=MC², almost like an atomic bomb. Actually produces more energy than an atomic bomb, as energy is not lost to collisions between electrons and positrons like in annihilation reactions.
What is this patent nonsense? Why must ignorant LN authors stick their fat, sweaty noses in places they don't belong? First vectors, now this shit.
>can MC fuck
Its fucking dumb how OP he is. There is literally no point he can ever lose to anyone. It's boring.
This. His only weakness is that he is impotent robot.
Still would not stop thousand girls liking how "average" he is forcing on him to mastrubate with his moutionless hands or knees.
God can intervene and strike him.
This will be so bad it should get a whole new definition of bad in the dictionaru.
Even God will have trouble killing him.
This trolling is getting out of hand. MC will die if his entire body blown up. Or just his brain. And there are other characters who are on his level or some who won't lose to him.
Oh please. There isnt a single character that can defeat him or even go even with him.
>Other strategic class magician that we don't know about yet
Are near or on his level or can counter him. Affinity matters and the right affinity can be his bane or beat him. Get over it.
I've never heard of this before or seen it discussed on /a/, why is it suddenly popular as fuck?
Also pic-related because fuck your shit it's Asura.
Because anime adaptation.
>OP woke up some hours ago and went back to samefag troll his thread
Spamming SAO over and over again like a retard until it becomes true.
The character interactions in this are so boring.
MKnR was never popular on /a/. Before the anime got announced, fans did make threads, but they were rare. Threads back then had hardly any trolling or forced hype to bait trolls.
Now since the anime got announced, trolls who trolled SAO saw this as the same kind of target, so they are picking at it because herp derp MC so "gary stu".
I disagree. Most are enjoyable. In particular ones like this:
How could they end their exchange of information on a good note — Mayumi summed up all she felt with a sigh. At that point, Tatsuya stood up intending to leave without eating anything, but the cuff of his sleeve was firmly grasped by a hand that reached out from the other side of the table. —If Tatsuya had thought to evade it, he would have been able to do so, but he restrained himself since Mayumi didn't need another poor result.
"Now, why don't we enjoy our tea time."
Tatsuya sent a distrustful stare (naturally, intentionally) against the iron wall of Mayumi's smile, and Mayumi lightly thrust the small box that had been placed on the table with her other hand.
It seemed that she was not going to be kind and forget about that.
So that's how it's going to be; Tatsuya let out a small sigh at Mayumi, who was no longer trying to conceal the fact that she was planning something.
No words of rebuke were let loose.
Quite the opposite, Mayumi was looking at Tatsuya with anticipation and excitement in her eyes.
Isn't she regressing back to childhood due to her anxiety over taking the university entrance exams? While he considered that impossibility (In the first place, Mayumi had no reason to be anxious about her grades), Tatsuya freed the box from the covering.
He did not do it in an overtly, slow, time-consuming way, but he politely peeled it off in a manner that did not damage one bit of the wrapping paper as a token form of resistance.
What came out was a cardboard box covered by a lid. The homemade Valentine's box had inner walls treated with vinyl; the largeness of the box made it one of the so-called 'to convey your true feelings' type.
Of course, he did not mistake it for that.
The atrocious combination of chocolate and coffee that made him light headed would not allow him to have that kind of delusion.
The inside of the box was packed tightly with black, cube shaped objects. They did not resemble anything Tatsuya recognized as 'chocolate'.
He had a forewarning of what it would taste like just from the odor.
No matter how much it is said that bitter things do not have to taste bitter, that is limited by quality and quantity.
Tatsuya resignedly put the objects that looked like they should be called medicine instead of food into his mouth and chewed them.
The results of this were — only recorded by Mayumi's smug smile.
Segment that lead up to this:
"…Psst, psst, Izumi, what do you think Onee-chan is doing?"
"I think that… she's making chocolate?"
"Then… what's up with the creepy laughter…?"
Currently in their third year of middle school, Saegusa Kasumi and Saegusa Izumi, twin daughters of the head of the Saegusa Clan, were quietly whispering into each other's ears at the entrance to the kitchen.
"She looks like… she's happy. Sort of."
"But, isn't that a little wrong?"
In front of the pair's eyes, Mayumi was happily double boiling bars of chocolate. However, even if they described her as happy, the smile on her face was definitely not the kind that belonged on the face of a young maiden in love on the night before Valentine's Day.
"…Who do you think she is going to present it to?"
The tone of Mayumi's laughter had already gone from "uhuhuhuhu," passing through "HuhHuhHuhHuhHu…" and the rest and was now close to becoming something like "KukKukKukKukKukKu…" As the person who resembled their elder sister acted as if she was plotting to poison someone, the twins looked at each other with faces drained of color.
"Kasumi-chan, about the chocolate that Onee-sama is using, is that…"
"Aah, oh yes… that's the stuff that's ninety-five percent cacao with zero percent sugar…"
In the past, products that stated that they contained ninety-nine percent cacao had been available for purchase, but what was currently available commercially was the strongest, bitterest chocolate, and that was what Mayumi was using as an ingredient.
"Over there, that bag…"
"It's espresso powder…"
"Onee-chan, what kind of awful…"
Christ fucking almighty.
This is literally on the level of my shitty pokemon fanfics back in 6th grade.
>pokemon fanfics back in 6th grade.
Sounds like horseshit, man.
Maybe it was later, like 8th grade or some shit, I dunno.
It's been fucking forever, all I know is that in middle school I wrote terrible fanfic that still was on the level of the shit posted above.
Is it really that bad? I'm only going to watch it because my friend is hyped for it
Do you still have them? If your fanfic really is comparable, you can be making millions. So why haven't you tried making your own LN or some shit?
Good and bad is subjective.
Far from perfect, but I personally like it and enjoy it for a lot of things. Your friend sounds like he's fan so why not ask him for the details and his opinion?
How are you on /a/, anon? You know that writing is like 90% of any anime and manga's writing. You must rarely enjoy anime and manga if you're aversive to that.
Yet shit sales like water.
Why would he care?
Writing like this is standard LN tier, I dunno what you were expecting. The awkward translations don't help much.
Nobody knows how the anime will turn out. The LN isn't that good in all honesty, so better not expect too much. Tatsuya IS pretty insufferable as a character and his bullshit hax antics got immensely on my nerves after a while. Reading about him is fucking cringe worthy, too bad like 95% of the entire LN is exactly that.
Some of the side characters and the magic system are interesting but that is about it.
Seriously? That's some hilarious shit OP.
>The tone of Mayumi's laughter had already gone from "uhuhuhuhu," passing through "HuhHuhHuhHuhHu…"
that laugh should end up as AUHUEHUEHUEHUEHUEHUEHUEHUEHUEHE
>There are actually short haired girls
Kirino fan here. The wincest is as boring as the chemistry between the main character and any other character.
Nope, I'll be watching to see how this turns out but I'm not going to defend the terrible writing in this.
Are they really rare in LNs?
I thought that kind of "development" was what people hated about the girls in bakemonogatari.
From what I've seen. I'm just tired of seeing girls with hair down to their assess all the time.
Forgot about that one.
The Japanese have a hard-on for long hair.
>THEY EITHER HATE GARY STU AND WANT TO FUCK HIS SUPER SPECIAL RICH WAIFU
Well that's settled, picking this up for the NTR doujins.
that's just impossible
If there's one thing you should know by now, it's that nothing is impossible in a doujin.
I read this for the setting and characters. I don't care much about the MC. The imouto is pretty prefect though, but my favorite girl is another girl.
You can always read Monogatari
The only possible method is by creating a parallel universe were the MC doesn't exist, or by time traveling in the past and punching his pregnant mom
It's okay, anon. I laughed 6 hours later.
>OP keeps bumping his troll thread
Life finds a way
I wish the people in the LN could express more than just wry smiles. I'm serious go to a chapter ctrl+f the word wry see how many hits you get
