Uh...isn't Kill la Kill pretty much just s-CRY-ed with rule 63 on the mains?
kill la kill bad
No Scyred was actually good.
I wish S-Cry-Ed didn't have Hiraiface.
Well, naturally. Men have real reasons to fight.
Those niggers stole his loli. If that shit happened to me I would be mad enough to punch holes in reality too.
S-Cry-Ed didn't have ancient aliens.
>neo-/a/ knowing about s-CRY-ed
I have to admit, I'm surprised.
>pretending it's good that people remember an Adult Swim cartoon
Well aren't you king hipster.
I was going to make a snarky comment about scryed being new, and then I realized I watched the fansubs thirteen years ago.
Fuck I feel old as shit.
Also Scryed threads pop up about once a month and are one of the few things I have never seen anon say something negative about. Of course by mentioning that someone is going to say something negative just to be contrary.
It's not a cartoon, Mom. It's called anime.
mako = straight cougar?
Yeah. Why would anyone remember an Adult Swim cartoon? Rite Guys?
Scryed is Gurren Lagann with less drilling and more punching.
If its so good why doesn't /a/ ever talk about it, huh?
I liked Needless better.
Cause it's old.
Did the movie ever get subbed?
But loli finally wins the Kazuma if you want to know.
>implying Taniguchi-san isn't working on new S-CRY-ed project
>implying every Sunrise franchise is dead
2014 is the year to believe /a/nons and BASED SUNRISE DOMINATION
It was implied she won in the tv series.
Satsuki isn't as lovely and perfect as Ryuho
Implied, but in the Moves they are very clear that Kazuma and Kanami's relationship has taken a more... adult turn.
Did Straight Cougar die?
Yes, other than Ryuhou all the alter users that utilized s-CRY-d were being killed by their alters.
Wrong. Cause it mostly likely sucks eggs.
All signs point to yes since he was refined and got his shit kicked in my the final boss while still looking beat up after all those months in the final episode
Na man. Scryed was about a dude who fought asshole government invading his home and protected his loli.
Like X-men or something
That last episode was fucking brilliant.
Go, watch s-CRY-d. Like it or loath it, watch it first before you judge it.
No KLK is just edgy CH with a touch of Nagai mecha.
>There are people on /a/ who haven't seen this OVA
I'll teach your grandmother to suck eggs.
A friend of mines loves this anime. I saw a few episodes. I think I might try it later.
why the fuck aren't the movies subbed yet
I can't see how anyone can like Ryuhou.
You don' FUCKING steal a man's loli and expect there not to be consequences.
>ctrl f "balls"
>0 of 0
Edgy McTeenage faggots that think being dark and brooding is cruise control for cool and doesn't automatically make you an unlikeable twat.
Was NEEDLESS a s-CRY-ed parody?
Ryuhou, is really cool
Kanami, the beautiful
I-Is this his final form...
Isn't Kill La Kill pretty much just Devil may Cry which is a ripoff of Scryed just a ripoff of a ripoff?
I would love to hang out and drink some beers with Kazuma. I bet he is chill as fuck when he isn't working and someone hasn't absconded with his loli.
> Soichiro Hoshi in his prime
I wish he got more MC roles nowadays. Such a great VA.
Why is this so poetic?
You guys, s-CRY-ed wasn't good even back then. Go back and watch it again.
>Such a great VA.
As long as you don't try to make him cry, anyway. Good lord he's bad at that.
Just watched it last week. You're wrong.
Because it is the perfect expression of the burning passion that is the ultimate futility of man.
I rewatched it after last months scryed thread.
What's wrong with you, are you allergic to fun?
No. The Hanma is always evolving. Always growing stronger.
His crying voice has only really worked on one character, Takeru, because he was such an insufferable faggot in Alternative.
Doesnt Kazuma cause the extinction of the dinosaurs in the manga?
Yes he does.
Not really... I can hardly see any similarities between both works.
Though I can see how some would try to argue they are comparable due to some very superficial and almost meaningless similarities, both works are rather different.
Kazuma and Ryuuko are both hot-headed (but Ryuuko isn't nearly hot-headed as Kazuma). Other than that, they're really different. Ryuuko started with her revenge thing and is now trying to understand what is going on, whereas Kazuma started as just some sort of mercenary, who fought with agents from the system whenever they messed with him or with innocent people, and then decided to bring it down when his friend was killed. Kazuma had this whole thing about living his life freely.
Satsuki and Ryuuho are even less similar than the former two, with both of them being born in rich, influential families (though Satsuki's family is far more powerful and influential than Ryuuho's). Furthermore, Ryuuho was just a worker for the system, who wanted to bring down order and peace to a lawless place. On the other hand, Satsuki, built her own thing to pursue her own plans (though, she is a member of COVERs, but apparently always plotting against it).
In terms of knowledge about the state of the world, Kazuma and Ryuuho were pretty much the same. In fact, their standing pretty much similar, since Ryuuho was just a worker for the system (and Kazuma was even asked once to join it, which he refused), and Kazuma was a misfit. Neither had much of a position of power.
On the other hand, Satsuki rules over Honnouji and clearly knows a fuckton more things than Ryuuko (and probably still does, to a lesser degree of course). Not to mention the first half of the anime involves Satsuki pretty much using Ryuuko for her own ends.
As for the rivalry... the thing Ryuuko and Satsuki have hardly feels as such, especially compared to Kazuma and Ryuuho who were always at each other's throats, even by the end when they had no reason to fight.
Read the manga right now, shit is fucking ridicy.
Wait, in SCR, Alters were rip-offs of Stands....
Then what are the clothes rip-offs of?
Kazuma causes fucking evolution and also fights the aliens.
Hell, in the manga Kazuma's Mental Treason is OP as fuck. He can do nearly anything he wants with it.
The manga is fucking crazy.
Also Scheris goes looking for Ryuhou who she is even more obsessed with than in the anime, and ends up getting captured and turned into a mind broken sex slave. When Ryuhou finally finds her and she has a chance of being resuced by the man she loves more than her own life, he doesn't recognize her shrugs his shoulders and walks off leaving ehr to her fate.
That hint about dinosaur extinction is a good starting point to making me wanna read the manga, but I'm gonna need a few more ridiculous plot points to persuade myself.
Ryuho was a total dick but he got better by the end
Yeah I think I'll skip this one
Mangos shit if i recall from long ago, just my OPINION
I still really like the OP to s-CRY-ed
First few chapters are painful, but once they mangaka stopped giving a fuck about it making sense it is pure fun.
I haven't watch the anime in 10 years or so, but I don't recall him being a dick.
As far as I remember, he did his job to bring down order, and fought the people who were causing trouble. I don't recall him doing anything bad to anyone, and despite him being serious as fuck, I do remember he was a really good person.
When he realised what HOLY/HOLD was actually doing, he turned against them.
That cow is now in HD
Still as good as the first time I heard it
He was an insufferable spoiled little rich boy, that looked down on anyone that wasn't born with a silver spoon up their ass like him. Despite being rich handsome and educated he still finds an excuse to mope around like an emo bitch the entire series.
Plus he steals lolis. First Scheris when she was one, and then Kanami.
Fuck that guy
it's PSG trying to be s-CRY-ed.
>First Scheris when she was one, and then Kanami.
He never stole Kanami. If anything, he stole Kazuma from Kanami, seeing that by the end they were old as fuck and were still fighting against enemy forces (not having returned to Kanami or Mimori).
He's just away going fast because no one else will.
Watch the movies. Only three years has passed from the beginning of the story and the end. 21 is hardly old as fuck.
Are you sure it's only 3 years? I recall having the impression a long time had passed, since both of them had beards and looked old as fuck.
Ryuho's body is falling apart just like Kazuma
The movies aren't subbed.
Ok, I'll bite, how is KLK like DMC?
>still complaining about Hirai designs
I was disappointed by the lack of a TL note.
Really? I don't remember that.
It's three years, which in Kazuma's mind is just long enough to make it not creepy when he gets with Kanami.
the power of a beard.
No, it's like DmC.
Based Wataru Takagi.
By the finale he has the same lines on his face that Kazuma has
I like the dub better
>And it's hard!
>And it's comin' to get 'cha!
What makes it even funnier is that it's being said by DemiDevimon, Piedmon, Digimon Emperor, Veemon, Impmon, etc.
COME ON BEST FRIENDS BY MY SIDE
not until characters start dying left and right and it gets an actually good op/ed
You're missing out on Majestic Prince then.
That last episode was so good.
Fuck Ryuho. He was given an overpowerred alter with no effort required besides angst. Kazuma had to work his ass off with personal sacrifice to achieve what he achieved.
I think this was meant to bring further contrast between them. It works pretty well imo.
Ryuho a shit
no character is worse
MY PROUD FIST
Ryuho worked just as hard to get as strong as he was. He was born into a privileged position and could have just angsted his entire life away after his mother died, but instead he busted his ass with training and discipline to become the best Alter user in HOLY
Ryuho was a faggot, ignore two bitches and let one of them dies. Powered by dead people.
He's more tolerable in the manga though.
>He was given an overpowerred alter with no effort required
I'm pretty sure he had to train for years to get Zetsuei that strong
I only wish KlK were as homoerotic as that show.
Reminder: when Ryuho was dying and his life was flashing before his eyes, he thought of his dog before he thought of Mimori
Scheris please go
Dogbro was a better companion than her.
Say what you want, but the wrong one died.
Anybody could have died and it wouldn't matter so long as Kanami was safe
Best girl, Kazuma and Ryuho both agreed, don't bother them when they're busy fighting army dudes every day
>picks it up
First episode better be good otherwise I'll drop it
Kazuma fights for his freedom
Ryuko fights for vengeance
Ryuho is a puppet for a government power
Satsuki wants to become the power herself
>they're busy fighting army dudes every day
But I thought they ended up killing each other and Kanami ended up old and alone for the rest of her life.
Wait, the movies are sequels? I always thought they were just a redone version of the show.
Shit, now the fact there's no subs for them is even worse.
She's not fast enough
Hirai face isn't even that bad in s-CRY-ed
He didn't start getting terrible until Gundam SEED
They didn't need to kill each other when their powers were doing that for them. After their fight, presumably they spent every waking moment beating the shit out of soldiers from the mainland who were sent into to take the lost ground.
Somewhat unrelated but who's hype for the new Fafner?
Yeah. I need to go back and rewatch parts of the original/ova/movie etc.
I never really had any problem with Hirai faces. When there's hundreds of artists guilty of samefaces that are worse like Akira Toriyama but everyone doesn't give him much shit strangely enough, it hardly seems fair to me.
Also, the superior Hirai Show coming through.
If angela has another great song I'll be.
Only is Arai gets a role.
Did you write this?
Funny you should say that since its been exactly the opposite for me. Back then I rated Scryed a lot lower than I do today, actually it's one of few series that I end up liking more and more as the years go by, and I've now re-watched it at least 5 times since I first saw it in 2002.
MJP best araiface
This happened to me as well. Except the 5 times part.
No it wasn't. It was awful, right down to the character designs.
Kill la Kill has a much better cast of characters and a far superior overarching story that's not convoluted. Also, Kill la Kill takes itself nowhere as seriously.
s-CRY-ed is shit for grimdark 14 year old boys.
The point is that there's nothing special about remembering s-CRY-ed since it's entry-level. It implies nothing about the general anime knowledge of the poster or the quality of the board.
He hasn't even gotten serious yet.
You're joking right?
It's really not all that old, relatively speaking.
People don't talk about it because it's garbage.
Ep 1 was the best. Ep 2 was awful. Ep 3 was okay.
Try watching the '73 CH though.
Theres a lot more reason to dislike it than Hirai faces. They can be pretty unbearable at times though.
>there are people on /a/ who haven't read all of Nagai's manga and aren't even planning to
That's a good one anon
So you don't have an actual argument?
I doubt there's anyone here who's read all of them considering how many of them aren't even translated.
>one of the few things I have never seen anon say something negative about.
You're joking right?
>s-CRY-ed is shit for grimdark 14 year old boys.
i dont need one
because you obviously dont know what the fuck you are talking about
You're not even quoting me. Nice try though.
There are quite a few people here who can read raw shounen, you know.
Though I haven't read them all.
I honestly couldn't stop laughing at that part.
Fuck, this show is bad.
It's the same for me really.
Why would you do this to yourself?
>Implying dog > Mimori isn't the truth.
I'm not really implying that.
Mimori was a pretty shitty character, but then again just about all of them were shitty characters.
Just... dog? For real?
No, but seriously. Why?
Go read more and find out why.
Fine Zetsuei the dog. Zetsuei was with him when the incident happened. Mimori was not.
I've read enough. I want to know why you would do that to yourself?
I don't really care. What I'm getting at is the dog flashing before his eyes made, what was supposed to be a dramatic scene, comical.
I enjoyed the show immensely with a recent rewatch (probably because of nostalgia) and like most things about the show but the scenes involving Minori got preachy and killed the flow of the anime. Did not help that she was sorta a bitch too. If Straight Cougar was not in the scene too I tended to skip them.
Just because something's published for the shounen demographic doesn't immediately mean it's bad.
You think your pet being murder before your eyes is comical?
Grade A aspie right over here.
What has Toriyama done besides Dragon Ball? Chrono Trigger? Hirai has a show every year while Toriyama is busy swimming in his DBZ cash.
>I've read enough.
Clearly not, or you wouldn't be asking retarded questions in a thread where only shounen manga and their anime counterparts have been posted.
(Coincidentally, Scryed, Cutie Honey and Baki all ran in the same shounen magazine.)
Toriyama probably doesn't need to worry about paying bills, unlike Hirai.
I didn't even say anything about the dog dying though. Just the dog flashing before his eyes.
Thanks for trying to read though.
He's under Squenix's payroll with the latest Dragon Quest game.
>Hirai has a show every year
His last work before MJP was Linebarrels which was 2008. What the fuck are you smoking, man?
I was exaggerating and more referencing his work in the 00s. I do not have a problem with "Hirai" face either though, it is only noticeable because most other artists have a generic style or adhere to a studio's guidelines.
This show was so manly that the main love interest turned into lesbians after the two dudes decided to hate fuck each other for the rest of eternity.
>people still comparing this to X-Men
Years ago, I would have called this shit out on anybody but now a days, it's not that off the mark.
Man do I feel old
Yep. Sure is edgy with all the...wait, no. It's not edgy.
Like, at all.
There were arcs in X-Men were Logan protects a loli?
Needless is too "on the nose" and I can not stand the art style.
Alterations subs when?
>I can not stand the art style.
You must be some sort of homosexual.
I can not tell what is a sound effect kanji or a piece of a character.
Nope! He really was just tired and passed out. The movie confirmed it.
It brings back warm memories and glad feelings to know that there actually is a supportive following for s-CRY-ed.
When I got managed to see it there was far *far* less appreciation for it.
God do I love this series.
Also wrt OP, I had that feeling with the new KLK intro, but 1) Satsuki isn't a "rival" to Ryuko, she's just an obstacle. And 2) s-CRY-ed ended up with the two main characters begrudgingly working together, with both learning how life was like for the other. KLK has, and I can almost guarantee will not have, NONE OF THAT.
