Didn't it differ from the manga a lot? Like completely different stories and characters or something? I might be thinking a different /ak/ anime though.
>>
>>101598228

I heard the manga was a more straightforward cute girls doing sabage things. All of the drama was created for the anime.

I didn't like the ending though. It didn't need to be the school shooting that some anons were calling for, but it felt like they swept all the drama and tension under the rug instead of actually resolving it.

In the manga, I think Yura lusts after both Sonora and Karila.
Yura also tries to get Karila in revealing outfits, and fantasizes about her doing lewd things.
>>
What an awful show. Not even a good trainwreck like SamFlam is. Just all around awful.
>>
>>101598228
Pretty sure it was more cute girls doing cute things with airsoft, though I heard it started going down a similar grimderp route to the anime right before it was canned.
>>
>>101598228
Yeah, anime didn't attract manga fans in Japan because the latter was yuri-subtext SoL.
>>101598807
It wasn't the writing that killed it. It was the lack of direction. There was no overarching point, and plot points would be brought up as crucial only to be dropped two weeks later.
>>
>>101594440

What anime is this? I googled it and I found some comedy/slice of life anime called Stella Women's Academy. That can't be it, can it?

This was my only complain with the show. The ending was really unsatisfying. The build up was incredible though. At this show's height there were strings of threads lasting from Thursday to Monday.

It may not have been objectively a good show but it was definitely my AOTY. Nothing has been able to replace the hype and anticipation it gave me.

I just wish people would remember the good parts, instead of focusing so much on how it ended.

To be fair, she also warped reality to turn the school into an endless game of airsoft, rewriting all the other students (and possibly her own friends) into tireless airsoft fanatics. She probably wasn't the most mentally stable person on the planet at that point.

Before this even gets out of hand, I will post this image. After the episode there were several entire threads arguing over whether it was sweat or tears.

Because canon has not and never will state the truth on this matter, all we can do is speculate until the end of time. It is truly a mystery.
