New CM for Mekaku City Actors by Shaft.

This time we got the anime design for Marry, who will be voiced by Kana Hanawaza.

In this series, there is an idol who got popular because she has an ability called "captivating eyes".

The creator of this series has that ability IRL, so the content is nothing special but is popular because of snake magic.

Aren't you people happy that something other than pandering teenage fantasy haremshit is popular for a change?

Seems like another case of Japan being hyped for something to the moon and the majority of /a/ being completely unaware.

But then you can compare her to someone like Ayane Sakura and notice that she can't do 4-5 completely different voices and also accents. Yeah I'll dare to say that she's a bad VA.

You're right, give me some more Infinite Stratos over this tripe, am I right?

So does Kill la Kill. In this case, it's because of the vocaloid fanbase. In KlK's case, it's because it has female main characters.

But it is. Not that that's saying much, but still.

Two of the top three selling light novels in Japan going head to head in one season, should be interesting. SHAFT should trump Madhouse when it comes to anime sales though.

>>
>>101326663
1 year ago, Mahouka is quite an existent in /a/ until it's catch more people then it's total destruction.

You fucking retarded piece of shit, you.
Female main characters has nothing to do with it, in fact that wouldn't even fly with tumblr.
But given how it is western pandering shounen crap, it still manages to be tumblr relevant.
>>
>>101326748
What are you talking about? Unless I'm sorely mistaken Madhouse are doing Mahouka, right? That's the 3rd best selling LN in Japan, Kagerou Days (Mekaku City Actors) is #2.

SAO is #1, as you'd expect.
>>
>>101326663
It's because Light Novels.

Speaking of Mahouka, is the MC of that a glorious troll or a total faggot?

If Kamiyan isn't doing Kano I'm going to be really surprised.

Best girl, best song and will have best episode.

Yeah, I wanted to say Mahouka, dunno how did I end up writing Mahou Sensou.
>>
>>101326748

First off, it has a loli main which is already enough to doom a series, secondly, not even loli fans will care since it's Madhouse, ergo every loli scene will get butchered and cut out.
>>

>and the majority of /a/ being completely unaware.

>>101326848
Mahouka will certainly sell, it's fairly hyped, it just won't sell as much as it would if it was animated, say, this time last year. Its popularity has waned a bit lately.
>>
>>101326605
That'd be great if harem were the only type of anime that was bad. But this is pandering trash anyway. As long as they have the popular VAs and studio people will lick it up and call it a masterpiece.

While SAO is just a self-insert harem show with a handful fetishes.

I'm really hyped for this, and I became even more hyped when I discovered SHAFT was doing this, they are perfect for it.

I can guarantee they will roll on cash with this yet again.

It's my most hyped anime for the next season, people might not try it at first because the summary seems really boring, but this is one of those things you can't explain without making it seems very boring or spoiling it.

I liked this design, it seems some kind of mix between white and yellow. Overall the designs for this are great so far. Don't disappoint me, Shaft.

There are lots of good producers with many notable characteristics. Some of them are average though so sometimes it sounds the same.
>>
>>101327267
Please point out the generic tsundere, the generic childhood friend, the generic transfer student etc.

The only person you can really point out as a generic sort of archetypal character is Momo. She's pretty shallow. Shintaro is at first glance but he's actually got a back story that isn't complete shit and he feels like a character instead of a self insert.

What's wrong with his back story? He was a self absorbed asshole who disregarded others because he felt everyone was beneath him, he only had one friend in the world whom he constantly mistreated and alienated, she commits suicide because of the kagerou daze but due to him not knowing about this he thinks he causes it and becomes a social recluse out of pure guilt, wasting away both mentally and physically.

Plot and characters, simply put. The plot is speculah fuel at its finest and the characters appeal to people across the board.

Also, that picture is from the purposefully edgy bad ending. There's a different video which has a good ending. It'll be interesting to see if SHAFT takes one, both or neither for the anime.

She does, like, 2 and a half songs. It's mostly IA.

Action, blood, gore and explosions are pretty much normalfag catering at their finest.
Unless the blood and gore goes to extreme brutality, maybe. But it doesn't happen here.
>>
>>101329096
No, the anime is going to have a new story by Jin. The songs, manga and LNs don't follow the same story; why would a one-cour anime follow the LNs with the creator in charge of the story?

This is going to be the deepest and most intellectual anime ever created. I can understand why the otaku are freaking out. They can't handle something with this much depth and awareness. Kana Hanazawa, the best voice actor ever, only drives the final nail in the coffin for the plebeian otaku masses.
>>
In the novels, Kido explains to Shintarou where the powers come from, but she doesn't tell him how it's decided the ability a person gets. I'm going to guess that Kano is the reason she didn't tell him, because it would make him look really fucked up.

I predict that the next novel will have Kano casually mention why he got his power, and everyone will freak out. Then Hibiya will get embarrassed because this will draw attention to the fact that he is a stalker.

It's a program used for making songs. Nothing more, nothing less. Calling it "pseudo vocaloid" and "vocaloid for hipsters" literally makes no sense. Kagepro isn't a program, it's a song / light novel series.

That's like if I called Bakemonogatari "Fruity Loops Studio 6" for hipsters.

Konoha's birthday is Christmas and there are crosses in Outer Science PV.

The snake has a name, but Jin hasn't revealed it yet. It could be a Christianity-related name, but it could also be something related to Hinduism.

There. You're probably pretending to be retarded anyways, but here you go 10/10 you got me good.

This is going to be the new "overrated shit with an obnoxious circlejerking fanbase" show next season, isn't it?
>>

>>101338585
It's pretty much the same thing.

Vocaloid is a program to make songs, this shit is a program to make songs. It doesn't matter if Vocaloid is a singing voice synthesizer, the point is they have the exact same premise.

Tsukihiko isn't in a lot of art, probably because he never got an official PV.

Why didn't anything like this happen in shinigami record:
>"If you have no name, how about I give you one? It would be troublesome if I didn't have anything to call you by."
>"Fine, do whatever you want."
>"Hm, what would be good... I know, how about Azami? Since you're beautiful but hard to get close to."
>"I changed my mind, don't call me that."
>"What's wrong? Don't you like it, Azami?"
>"I said stop it."

And then she could start blushing and punching him every time he says it.

Because Azami isn't a generic tsundere and this isn't Super Haremshit 2014.

It was an old theory. When Azami was still mysterious as fuck and had only a few small appearances. I don't think anyone believes it anymore.

She might have been responsible for making Haruka fall in the fountain.

They will never be a happy family ;_;
>>
>>101341963
The best thing that could ever happen is Azami marrying Kenjirou and starting another family.

It would be funny as fuck and counter-troll that asshole snake.
>>
>>101342249
I wouldn't want that at all. I know both Azami and Kenjirou are grieving widow/ers but still.
>>
>>101342406
"People who are pushed together by extraordinary circumstances that alienate them from everyone else" is kind of a theme of this series, you know.

I still don't see how that has anything to do with forcing Kenjirou and Azami into a relationship. All that would do is fuck up Azami again, she's still going to outlive everyone anyway.

Forcing two characters into a relationship just to do it is stupid. They both just need to move on, like route 1 Shintarou did. Which is what is likely going to happen.
