What's with KyoAni and their no-kiss policy? Are they staffed by eunuchs?
They're just too pure.
pls no lewd
They are staffed with girls.
They're probably just waiting for the right moment to give "the big kiss". As a climax or something. These are all minor episodes, so they don't want to display the fireworks yet, you know?
It's the ultimate tease and I like it
They are all schlicking to their Yuuta and don't want to soil him with some little slut.
Look at this shit. When we finally got on-screen kiss, they chose this stupid angle to show it.
What the hell, KyoAni?
They know that going there is an invitation to a shitfest party.
Buy the BDs anon.
They know how to pace things.
One eskimo kiss in chuu2 is worth all the sloppy dyke kisses in sakura trick
I thought chu released on Wednesday?
That's actually Haruhi S1
I thought it looked different.
You can't be serious.
Yeah, this shit is annoying. Same thing with KnK last season.
Deko x mori sama not good enough for you?
This. Stop being such a slut OP.
>What's with KyoAni and their no-kiss policy?
>>didn't watch Kanon
No. It was accidental.
Goddammit, KyoAni is like Japanese Disney.
Yamada is pure as fuck.
>thinking recent kyoani and key-adaptation kyoani are similar at all
Am I the only one that thinks KyoAni has been getting worse these past couple seasons. The shows just aren't that interesting. Nothing really grabs you and keeps you wanting to come back for more.
It's like some curse they're scared to break.
Oh come on that doesn't count.
Both have merit.
They like teasing the audience.
>look it up
Fuck, all this time I thought that "Am I kawaii uguu" meme is just one bad frame blown out of proportion. This art is seriously bad.
I'm pretty sure this is the 2002 version, not the 2006 version that kyoani did.
Worse. It's staffed by Japanese people.
You've never seen a Key design before?
So the staff doesn't know how a relationship works?
At this rate the first real kiss in any Kyoanus show will be a full on homo, sloppy saliva mess in Free.
Yeah you are.
More like afraid of showing
Come on, if it's staffed by Americans, Rikka would've already bullied to death since long ago. And Shinka would've stayed in cheerleader club and dating five boyfriends.
That meme isn't even from Kanon, but from a shoujo show.
But that is not even the main couple
Wasn't that the OVA?
Why would you want a realistic relationship?
But it is a kiss. They aren't afraid of showing characters kissing, they just like teasing us. And yes, Christmas episode.
They are full-on perverts.
Where's my regular anime with MC's being decent and gentlemen, excusing themselves profoundly when accidentally running into a girl, heck, even when the girl runs into them, or getting slapped for making an ambiguous comment?
Instead we get spanking right in episode 1. Disgusting.
Not saying you Yankees are any better. Just pointing out that the Kyoani staff have had their genitalia replaced by Moe bladders that can't handle anything more extreme than hand-holding.
Maybe you should watch something else, anon. Though I'm afraid even /tv/ can't help you with this.
This is another one of KyoAni's wasted potentials. They make GORGEOUS adult women but so few of them are actual relevant characters.
They should take big risk and make an anime about cute adult women doing adult women things. Don't let those cakes go to waste, please.
That'd be the case if uguu wasn't the catchphrase of one of the fucking characters in kanon.
otaku pandering forced purity
I just want them to kiss
All they did was pinkie kiss and nose kiss something he always did with pink chu2
Rikka worst chuuni
No, not really
Yeah, but the image that most often accompanies it isn't from Kanon. Just google this meme and you'll see.
It's much, much worse than that.
They better fug soon
Being "from" something means it originated in the work, I could give a shit about what it's associated with now. You're wrong anyway since it originated from >>101458282
Goddamn how did they ever think that was a good idea?
I don't think anyone wants realistic relationships. We just want Japan to understand that the story isn't supposed to end when the relationship begins (now remedied by S2) and that physical intimacy is a normal part of relationships.
KyoAni will never take a risk again after how badly Nichijou flopped.
that spanking scene was amazing
Did you seriously believe it's not shopped?
They will kiss at the end of S2. Probably.
The point is that they are too pure and don't know how to progress the relationship. And that the director believes that kisses should come at the end of the story.
It's normal for normal relationships.
I want Rikka to get NTR'd.
Get out, Satone.
The other chuunis seem like a better match for Utah, even Dekomori.
They're still willing to take risks, I say.
Where's the risk?
That they're spending their own money on it.
>Two 16-year olds dating for half a year
>Haven't even fucking held hands, let alone kiss
This is not pacing, this is two teenagers who should by any reasonable standards be at peak sexual interest but for some reason aren't. If it wasn't anime I'd be calling them inhuman freaks of nature. Really the only way you can't think of the apparent lack of libido during their time of dating as anything but unnatural, is if you take the inevitable otaku blowout into account. I think this says something about the anime industry.
Tamako sold like shit. Your argument is invalid.
Changing your demographic is a risk.
Whether something sells good or bad isn't what determines whether it was a risk or not. That's the part that determines if it paid off.
Diabolik Lovers was dirty fujoshit pandering and sold like shit. Free! sold well because everything Kyoani makes is excellent.
>everything Kyoani makes is excellent
Why are kisses such big deal to Japan either way? I get that you want to build up to that moment, but they always save it for the last fucking moment in the series like it's the absolute 'endboss' of a relationship.
How many series even focus on characters being IN a relationship (and actually act like it, no fucking BAKA *slap* when the guy sees her panties or tries to hold her hand)
>Why are kisses such big deal to Japan either way? I get that you want to build up to that moment, but they always save it for the last fucking moment in the series like it's the absolute 'endboss' of a relationship.
Bizarre Japanese story tradition. They think that the relationship should be left to the reader and it's not interesting to write about a happy relationship.
>How many series even focus on characters being IN a relationship (and actually act like it, no fucking BAKA *slap* when the guy sees her panties or tries to hold her hand)
The only one I can think of is Lovely Complex.
Traditional Japanese cultural expectations of what a story should be definitely play into this. A lot of their more traditional stories end up with the couple separating and no "happy ending".
>the absolute 'endboss' of a relationship
WARNING: BLOGSHIT ALERT
I remember when I'm about to kiss my cousin.
All that build up and nervousness, it's really like the final boss of our relationship. We're happily dating after that kiss.
We broke up two months later. She suddenly got mad at me for no apparent reason and told me to end our relationship. I will never understand women.
Sorry, I'll stop posting now.
>Bizarre Japanese story tradition. They think that the relationship should be left to the reader and it's not interesting to write about a happy relationship.
Yes, it's not like all Western fairy tales end with a wedding, kiss and "they lived happily ever after" too or anything.
Too bad Lovely Complex has that fucking tall as fuck bitch and there's no way a sane human being can enjoy that series.
Unlike Japan, the west isn't still writing stories with values based around centuries old fairy tales.
It seems my vanilla hentai has better romance.
Servant x Service had side characters in a relationship.
2014 Kyoani is run by fujoshits. Everyone with taste left years ago.
Neither does Japan, if you look at something other than cartoons. But if you're watching cartoons don't complain about fairytale-like story-telling.
And did they do yaoi?
What makes you think this?
Traditional Japanese stories don't end with that though.
its an epic forced meme
Self-inserting, or the lack thereof. Everything is fine as long as there is tension and longing, but the moment they actually kiss, it gets into "what a damn slut" territory. Like everybody is totally fine with idols flirting and being nice and talking about how they want a boyfriend, but the moment there's a real relationship, it's time to burn your DVDs.
if rikka was my girlfriend she wouldn't be able to get my cock out of her pussy I swear this kid must be gay
how far gone do you have to be to watch kyoni shows and actually enjoy them as well?
That's why Rikka isn't your girlfriend.
And you're a gay retard, so what?
Why not? Do they have to be rooted in centuries old story telling traditions because they are cartoons? What's wrong with complaining because you want more variety in your medium of choice?
>Implying anybody from Japan reads this shithole
>Wanting to date a cyclops.
The only person in an eyepatch I'm putting out for is Kurt Russel.
Because it's not a show like that. It rides on cuteness and purity. The very premise is that they are chuuni which by definition makes them childish and immature to have a real relationship.
If you want your relationships go watch White Album from last season where he kissed and fucked both girls multiple times or something.
Thinking anyone would be stupid enough to imply that says more of your level of intelligence.
We're talking about anime in general now, not Chuuni.
That would make more sense if they were like 11-12 and not 15-16
Well, chuunibyou is called chuunibyou because it occurs most frequently in 8th grade, which is 13-14 years old, and supposed to be long over by the time they are 16 like we have here, so you should have complained about the premise in the beginning, not now.
Fujoshi don't exactly like yaoi.
They prefer subtext.
