>>
>>101147685
As long Shinbo doesn't make a fucking direct clone of Monogatari they should be fine. The original guy who wrote it is working on the script so at least it won't be too detached from the original material.
>>
>>101147526
I read that manga adaptation and thought that the plot is all over the place. It's there, but it doesn't really seem to have a major plot going on. It has been quite a while since I read it, so I might be missing some details.

Is Outer Science canon? It feels kinda different from the other songs.
>>
>>101147745
that's part of the problem, the original material isn't really that good

standard teenage tripe

the hype will just kill the show

>>101147751
From what I recall of the songs, Outer Science is the bad ending where basically everyone ends up dying or something due to very, VERY vague reasons regarding Konoha and Mary resets the timeline, so to speak. Summertime Record from OP's images is considered the good and "true" ending.

I think a lot of it is just left for the viewer to fill in. Its in my manga backlog and I never bothered to touch the LNs, but I recall seeing that the teacher guy with the glasses turned Konoha and Ene into those cyber beings, so I would assume that it was mostly his fault. He's also Ayano's (the chick who committed suicide) father.

>>101147813
The hype will most definitely ruin it for a lot of people, and the original material is extremely vague, probably because he was waiting on a studio to pick it up for so many years. I guess we'll see.
>>
>>101147813
>standard teenage tripe

Sounds like anime to me.
>>
>>101147745
>The original guy who wrote it is working on the script

That's kinda shitty because Jin can't write dialogue for shit.
>>
>>101147981
Wait, there are LNs?
>>
>>101148109
Yeah, there's four of them but I don't think the last one was translated.
>>
>>101148109
Yeah, but only two of them have passable translations. The third one is translated by some retarded girl on tumblr who speaks English as like a third language from baidu translation, no less, and the fourth one is also a translation of a translation too.

They aren't really that good anyway.
>>
>>101147981
>original material is extremely vague
Just how I like my stories. Are the LNs translated or should I just go with the mango?
>>
>>101147140
If Shaft fucks this up, they're going to get torn apart by the fans.
>>
>>101147479
Is the background music from one of the MVs or original?
>>
>>101148148
>>101148194
Is it from the original author of the songs?

I guess I'll pick up the anime when it shows up. Going to set my expectation meter low though, seeing the potential this thing has to go REALLY BAD.
>>
>>101147813
It's Heroes with anime characters.
>>
>>101148296
Good, maybe they'll go back to making Madoka.

Also the fans are a bunch of fucking idiots, even the Japanese ones. They got like #2 on worst Japanese fanbase after Basugay. So they'll buy it no matter how shit it is.
>>
>>101148377
>They got like #2 on worst Japanese fanbase after Basugay. So they'll buy it no matter how shit it is.
There are far worse japanese fanbases than those two. Take kancolle's, which bought arpeggio's eyecancer anime.
>>
>>101148323
Yeah, Jin wrote the songs and composed the music, wrote the manga, and wrote the LNs too.

>>101148377
>go back
>implying they ever stopped
>>
>>101148323
Yes, but he kinda sucks at writing. He kinda made at least complex enough characters to hold my interest with the songs, but a lot of the characters except Ene, Azami and maybe Konoha are reduced to awfully flat archetypes in both the manga and the light novels.
>>
>>101148315
Sounds a little bit like Artifical Enemy

>>101148434
Shaft has put Madoka on the back burner to work on this, Nisekoi and Bake, so it could be a while. If things go badly that could affect where Madoka's priority is, since Madoka is guaranteed to sell amazingly, pretty much.

This won't fail though, because like I said, the fans are retarded.
>>
>>101148415
>still thinks Arpeggio was successful thanks to shitcolle

You are even more ignorant than the japanese fanbase you diss.

>>101148415
I think the list in question took into account autism and general rudeness about people not liking what they like, and they ranked pretty high when it came to being (dis)respectful.

The only flak this will get is against it's fanbase and the fact that it's Shaft.

>>101150091
That would make sense. Who trapped Hiyori and Hibiya in the heat haze anyway? Dark Konoha?
>>
HIBIMOMO OTP
>>
>>101150253
They're there because they both got hit by a truck on August 15. Pretty much everyone in the cast died on August 15. Escaping the haze gives a second chance at life.

Such a cute pairing. Hibiya should let Hiyori die and hook up with Momo. /ss/ is justice.

I think part of the reason I like her so much is that I feel really guilty for thinking she was a guy when I glanced over the character images before getting into Kagerou Project.

Think eva with black hair and medusa power. It fits.

Also, Jin also mentioned the birthday flower for August 15th seems to be a sunflower, with the meaning, "I only have eyes for you."

>>101164472
Everyone made that mistake

Best hoodie though.
>>
So, who are we going to get to see die the most in the anime? Hiyori?
>>
>>101164290
It felt like it was missing so much. I wish Jin did something before this so we didn't have the sloppy first work somebody who got popular for no reason.
>>
>>101164897
The story is still unknown at this point, as Jin has stated that the anime, novel, and manga follows different routes.
>>
>>
Is it Saturday yet?
>>
>>101165531
Calm your tits anon, we still thursday now

So this is the thing about the songs. It took me a while to realize Kagerou Days is part of all this too. One of my favorites. Didn't know there were different endings though. Is the manga any good?
>>
It's gonna be shaft's new cash cow for the next couple of years at least (just how ZS and monogatari were in the past)
>>
>>101165731
Mekaku doesn't really have enough content for anything more than 2 12-13 episode seasons, and even that would require them to really stretch out the material.
>>
>>101165776
if it sells well they are definitely going to make more
>>
>>101165872
SHAFT has never made filler for adaptations before.
They've milked Monogatari since it has 10+ novels and Madoka because it's anime original.
>>
>>101165731

>Cash Cow
Didn't it sell like 5k?

All I can say is that the chara-designs and overall atmosphere is delicious.

>many years
Isn't Kagepro only like a 2 years old and it got an anime announced like a year ago? I remember seeing the announcement like around summer last year so it definitely happened a while ago.
>>
>>101165776
That's not entirely true. It only has enough for that much now, but the novels haven't covered really a lot of the story yet. There's still probably 2-3 novels worth of material at least based on what songs haven't been covered. Personally I'd say more like 4+ since we still have stuff like Lost Time Memory untold and also stuff like Kenjirou's side of the story.

I don't know why SHAFT gives their name to adapt shit. First Nisekoi, now this. Why? Money shouldn't be an issue, really. Is it just to make more, because it's shit that's popular? It's like doing Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey and other fanfiction-tier drivel.
Fuck this shit.
>>

SHAFT are aniplex's slaves, they can't do what they want, they don't get much money for their shows because they don't have the money to fund them, because they are aniplex's slaves and they don't get much money for their shows because they don't have the money to fund them, because they are aniplex's slaves and they don't get much money for their shows because they don't have the money to fund them, because they are aniplex's slaves and they don't get much money for their shows because they don't have the money to fund them, because they are aniplex's slaves and don't have any freedom over what they do like KyoAni, because they are aniplex's slaves and the don't have the money to fund their shows.

The thing is, its hard to know anything about the Kagerou Days until you've listened to and read all of it. By that point you'd obviously like it to have taken the time to check it all out.
>>
>>101171869
I've read everything up to the third volume. The music is decent usually, but the story is crap, mainly because most of the characters are really dull.

Madoka by contrast at least has some well-developed characters.
>>
I'm excited for it. I just hope Ayano isn't voiced by Aoi Yuuki.
>>
>>101172204
Eh, I respectfully disagree. The story isn't what drives this as much as the characters do, and although the characters are all archtypes, there's some good development.

Most I just like the music and character design, but I still think its better than most people give it credit for.
