Pairing a princess with a bully is a disgrace. Precure
Silly anon. Bully girl x Shy girl is the purest kind of couple.
Superior shipping taste, my friend.
Kiss my ass, OP. I want Iona to bully and rape Hime for the rest of her life.
I want Trevor Philips to kill Iona just like how he killed Johnny.
"The secret is out!? Precure's identities are not to be known!!"
"Transfer student is a princess!! The great plan to get Hime friends!!"
"Megumi and Hime!! The great plan to help the best friend out!!"
"Ribbon's Kindness!! Cooking is caring!!"
Bully yuri is the purest form of yuri.
>"Megumi and Hime!! The great plan to help the best friend out!!"
I miss Mana
>"The secret is out!? Precure's identities are not to be known!!"
still using the ol' superhero thing, huh?
Savor these Hime and Megumi episodes. There won't be any later in the series.
>Ribbon can cook
So that's how Hime gets her meals.
Shameful plug of the troll subs in the last thread if anyone missed it last night.
Well, Ribbon is her caretaker after all.
What do you think
>The great plan to get Hime friends
will consist of? I can't help but have improper thoughts.
Introducing her, obviously. I'm more interested in the great plan to help the best friend out, since that looks like Hime's doing and Hime fails at everything.
What stupid reason could Blue possibly have for keeping precure a secret?
I already foresee that episode 5 is hime try talking to seiji.
My body is ready for the NTR
If Toei would grant me a single Precure wish, I believe I know what I would wish for. Not for something grand like a sequel season or a highly ambitious crossover movie. No. I would wish for a musical episode, with cleverly written lyrics standing in for most of the episode's dialog. Surely this isn't too much to ask for? And surely the little girls would enjoy it as much as I?
Kiniro Mosaic 12 was a masterpiece
Why is Dream Kabuto? If anyone should be Kabuto, it's Mana.
Yes, let's make Precure more like My LIttle Pony by having everyone burst into song at random.
>a musical episode, with cleverly written lyrics standing in for most of the episode's dialog
Precure isn't that kind of silly show.
>implying MLP invented musical episodes
>hating music and song
Precure is clearly serious business.
Cartoons randomly bursting into song is pretty much a Western thing, thanks to Disney. I don't think there's much history for that in anime, and I don't see a need for it either.
>Iona now dere instead tsun
REMEMBER WHEN HACHA WAS GOOD?
MLP invented songs, surely?
Precure needs more vocal, background vocal especially, Sentai has a ton of great songs each year and shows no sign of stopping.
I can be the effect of an incompetent villain's plan.
Songs are awesome. More awesome is never bad.
That word is pretty tired at this point. It's time to let it go into retirement.
Songs are sugoi. More sugoi is never bad.
That's more like it. Fresh and sparkly.
I would like more songs but generally that's handled by separate CDs, which have plenty of image songs. I don't see the already fragile plot progression of Precure getting any better by reserving large sections of screentime for singing. Save it for offscreen merchandise.
Replace about half the fights with singing. Or have them sing while fighting.
So things only count as a musical if they're not animated, otherwise it's automatically Disney-influenced? What the fuck?
But they have ~50 episodes to use. You know at least a couple will be filler. It wouldn't be so bad to try something like that with one of them, would it?
>have them sing while fighting
Maybe if Honey turns out to be a singer-type like people are saying. >>101623690
I have no idea where you got that from.
I'm curious to see how this will work out in practice.
>Or have them sing while fighting.
We Symphogeah now!
KinMoz spend less than half an episode on their musical. The singing and lyrics were good and the part was very enjoyable.
Toei probably doesn't have the skill to pull that off... we did have Makopi sing at Regina, would that count or are we replacing dialogue with song?
The Makopi singing at Regina was a good scene, but I meant sung dialog. And yeah, I don't know if Toei can do it well enough. If it's not done well, it'll just be an embarrassment.
Toei had a fantastic theme in Kyoryuger where there's a pop idol who wrote a song based on an "ancient melody" so she controls a mecha with that song, and in one episode where that mecha comes back, the fight scene is set to her singing, plus that song recurs throughout the series. It's a good approach and makes for some really emotional scenes.
>A time-travel based Precure where the main team fight enemies scattered through various timelines with the help of Cures from the past and future.
Where ever have I heard this before?
Songs as recurring themes can be cool, sounds like Megaman's Protoman.
How about a modern day setting in a fictional but familiar Japanese city where middle school girls fight monsters that appear only there.
Genius, apply to Toei immediately.
How do you get to work at Toei?
What raws are they timed to?
Oh god how do I muxed .ass
They're timed to Doremi's release.
Doremi's. It syncs out with others. Make sure the video and the text file have the same name in the same folder and it works automatically.
To use with other raws, move everything past the op by 10 seconds forward.
God these are some ugly ass designs.
Who worked on HaCha's first episode?
Preventing overprotective parents from interfering with your jobs has always seemed like a valid excuse to me. Fresh taught me that.
I hope that the fairy episodes will be as good as Suite's or Doki Doki's.
Moooooom give me back my henshin item! Stop hiding my cards!
HaCha's ratings out yet?
Thanks, are any of the staff for episode 2 known?
Oh, Splash Star had a writer shift episode 14 onwards and Narita wrote the rest? I don't remember anyone mentioning that before. Which is really weird since its ratings were strong initially and dropped soon after the shift.
I know I'm late for the party. I'm 31 episodes in from watching Doki Doki, but I don't see what makes Mana, MANa...
Alice on the other hand, is freaking awesome. Badass Precure of Badassitude.
I did not need more reason to worship Narita.
She behaves more like a shonen/harem protagonist than a hapless grill.
>what is every pink
asdf what am I doing.
You don't have to. She's a Mary Sue, the characters all treat her like she's hot shit for you.
>make up original setting rules and dancing-based powers
>dancing powers are actually just elemental powers and episodes are all generic rewrites
THIRD ERA WAS A LIE
Making really really bad trollsubs?
This is Precure. All episodes are generic rewrites in every season.
Bastion of originality it is not.
Realizing that it takes effort, when instead I could be eating cake and watching Suite
>"The secret is out!? Precure's identities are not to be known!!"
Megumi is going to become popular and get a lot of attention.
>"Transfer student is a princess!! The great plan to get Hime friends!!"
Solution to jelly Hime: transfer her into Megumi's class.
>"Megumi and Hime!! The great plan to help the best friend out!!"
>"Ribbon's Kindness!! Cooking is caring!!"
Ribbon opens up a stall?
Precure needs more hand holding finishers
>Megumi is going to become popular and get a lot of attention.
>going to become
She already is. Girl had 100 friends in primary school.
>>"The secret is out!? Precure's identities are not to be known!!"
Wait, this means Blue DOESN'T tell her not to reveal the Purikyua secret?
What a slut.
>two episode arcs
which Precure wud u ureshii?
Just have patience and rewrite rewrite rewrite. The first joke you think of is almost never good. Princess' original joke I did was "I like to buy burritos with food coupons, Cure Princess!". I also stopped trying to make every single line a gag, and just waited for a punchline.
>double hand holding
"Oh my... I fell down. Could you help me out, anon?"
She's dead, Jim.
Megumi, do you know her?
>haruyama drawing nagisa and calling it hacha
He better do this every fucking episode.
I'm not seeing it.
God damn it Haruyama.
You're supposed to draw HaCha Cures, not old Cures.
She was in the HaCha OP thought.
I hope he do this every week.
Can't post that on a christian image board.
Is doki doki! a good for show for start precure saga?
Not if you like fun.
I NEED HaCha figures! I want a Princess! I NEED episode 2! I love it! I love it!
Haven't been this happy since Heartcatch. Dokidoki started pretty good but I found myself getting tired almost as quick as Smile. I hope it'll be different this time!
If you like haremshit is a good season.
I like harems like Bakemono and Oreshura, and I liked Doki easily. You might be onto something.
Every girl craves the MC's anus. It has the spirit.
Kaiki doesn't and Kaiki is the best girl
Hence, not a harem
There's always an exception that proves the rule.
>Wait, this means Blue DOESN'T tell her not to reveal the Purikyua secret?
Precure's are world-known, the identities not so much
Yes, but it isn't the best one.
I will absolutely throw a bitch fit if there isn't a Precure War Meeting at some point
Blue is the general directing forces. He has all the knowledge and the ability to mirror-travel to all of his embassies. There's no need for the little girls to argue amongst themselves.
Just re-watched the first HaCha episode, remember all the bitching about 'Terribad'
Got me thinking, how would you translate older MotWs, like Akanbe?
Which color is the sluttiest?
Akanbe is easymode, it just means "Grimace".
>Precures arguing IDEALS
> not yellow
Girls are by nature sluts, so it's pointless to argue about which is the sluttiest. They all are equally slutty.
Yellows are all closeted sluts. Pinks are slutty and proud of it.
You are for real?
Even newfag like me know this.
Loving dicks isn't for PreCure
Like those pure maidens can have such a feat!
Or are you claiming something?
Well, there was Yes 5 (except Karen)
>implying Karen wasn't all over Kurumi's futadick
I was just about to post that.
I never knew I wanted this before now.
Well, there was DokiDoki (except Ange who aren't a cure)
Poor Yuuko, joyride hit her with the tit stick.
Will 2014 be the best SHT season?
Every SHT season is the best SHT season
I don't really have high hopes for ToQger. When the thing you are hyped the most are the VAs of the villains that can't be a good sign.
Well, who knows, it may surprise us.
What are you using to save the files? My pixiv extension broke.
>Every SHT season is the best SHT season
No, that season when Kiva aired was pretty bad
I'm on this train of thought too.
Ank Tool? Yeah, it's not working for some reason.
New robo and Tokkyu 6 look pretty cool
What about right click + save?
I just don't want it to be a trainwreck.
Had no idea there was new stuff out. Time to go to /m/
I didn't see them yet.
Ank Tool. It's broken for me too but the filename part isn't.
>Fortune's just a huge tsundere
This is only going to get more popular as the series progresses.
Sometimes /a/ exaggerates for humorous effect.
Guess I'll wait for a fix.
Doesn't automatically renames the files to fit my autism.
Ehh. It looks okay but it's still ugly as sin.
More like one person. Remember when half a thread got deleted and all the MANa crap left?
Yuuko gets paired with nobody while the other three get shipped with each other and every male.
What? What would satisfy you, even? It's got good symmetry and looks like pleather simulating fireproof suit matching his public services theme.
Sorry, I'll stop derailing the thread.
Better, but those train track visors really ruin it.
The dick sucking thing is still around, though I don't really mind it. It's just a different way of sexualizing the Precure.
>More like one person. Remember when half a thread got deleted and all the MANa crap left?
I don't, but it sounds great and I would like the mods to continue such work in the future.
Yuuko needs some more screentime to show off her personality, once she gets properly introduced she'll get shipped with everyone too. Fortune may have only had a minute or so, but her "I'll never forgive you!" leaves a strong impression.
>her "I'll never forgive you!" leaves a strong impression
Yeah, I was kind of impressed that they allowed one PreCure to use that specific phrase about another PreCure.
Usually that's a battle cry.
I was shitting myself in awe at how fucking badass her beamspam and her phrases were.
Me too, then I remembered when Makopi orarararara'd the star while blind and tamped down those hopes.
I shat myself in awe, when SHE PUNCHED THE STAR!
I just want her BGM.
I want to merry Hime.
Fuck this, I'm sleeping.
Who are the VAs?
I doubt Fortune will suffer the same fate, for starters, it doesn't look like the staff is always busy wanking each other about how lovely their special snowflake that they don't even remember the rest of the cast.
FukuJun and Moonraito.
Those aren't even comparable, it's stock footage so you'll at least see it again
I don't remember it at all in Smile, and in Doki Doki, it's only used by an enemy. The days of that being a stock phrase are gone, probably due to redemption becoming guaranteed trope in Precure.
Every season has had it, it's just it's become ridiculously common in the second era. At least Doki Doki toned it down, I'm hoping HaCha does as well. Main boss redemption arcs are fine, half-assed general ones are not.
You forgot Hocchan.
Reminded me of Rin's special (in a good way). I think Rin palm-strikes it instead though.
I can't believe I ignored magical girl anime for so long. I can't stop smiling.
I love the "Happiness Chaaaarge" chant in the middle of the transformation.
We Sailormoon now
Not that guy, but I've been spoiled by the great designs of recent years that going back to this very simple and almost cheap looking suits feels like a step backwards.
Maybe the sell-'em-to-the-kids costumes were getting too weird and they needed to simplify?
The simple designs are not inherently bad. It's just that they are trains. Fucking trains. Of all the things they could make simple suits they decide to make them when they get fucking trains as the theme. Jesus.
Stop shipping Hime to a bully, please.
How do people get this wrong?
>No nudity in the transformation
Remind me why you guys are watching precure please.
Especially considering every train mecha before this was GOAT
Get out pleb.
Do you think we watch these for fanservice exclusively or something?
>Implying I don't skip the henshin.
I masturbate to the mechanical portions of Nanoha transformations.
>skipping the henshin
I always skip henshin during ep 40-47 or when i rush seasons.
So I could ironically post about it while actually making fun of all the nerds watching it fo real.
Yes. What else ?
>Remind me why you guys are watching precure please.
The cancer that is killing /pc/
Perhaps this educational video explains it further. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rzK2rpv_CQ
I skipped DokiDoki's sometimes because they were so boring. I'd sometimes watch Rikka's and Alice's though.
Link to the pixiv artist, please?
That hairstyle, them eye brows.
I have the desire to pat her head.
>skip the henshin
This is some real fucking cancer going on in here
>AINO IS RIGHT
>Watching kids shows for fanservice
Toei is laughing at you so hard right now
Apart from Suite, did any other season even have implied nudity during henshin?
Princess Peace has arrived. Now if only I had a camera.
Fuck off retard
FW...I guess if you're into chrome?
Why must there be? Do you want to ogle middleschool girl bodies so much?
>Do you want to ogle middleschool girl bodies so much?
You don't want to ogle delicious precure bodies?
>Kamen Rider showed a marked drop in comparison to recent years with toys. The Toys and Hobby Business saw Kamen Rider earn an estimated 21.5 billion yen in the full year, with 17.2 of that coming from the first nine months, which comprise most of Kamen Rider Wizard‘s release. This area alone marks 2013 as the lowest Kamen Rider has seen since before Kamen Rider Decade in 2009.
>A recent Bandai toy catalog also stated that Gaim’s figure sales have been up 390% over last year.
>Wizard killed Kamen Rider
>But Gaim saved it
In other news
>Other points of interest include the new Aikatsu! franchise continuing to dominate over the Pretty Cure brand as the leader in toys for girls with Pretty Cure earning 9.5 billion yen and Aikatsu! earning 12.0 billion yen.
>Doki killed Precure and Aikatsu spit on grave
Will HaCha save Precure like Gaim is saving Rider? Only time will tell.
Replace kids with little girls and it's perfectly accurate.
Dokidoki was quoted in the "favorable" statement.
I've read the document, Doki isn't a shit
This makes me sad, why did Doki have to be so bad
Pixiv link please.
>Will HaCha save Precure like Gaim is saving Rider?
But from what I read, precure didn't have any remarkable drop in toy sales.
I never thought locks would be so financially feasible
I don't think this one is his fault Narutaki
>not enjoying the cute boys in precure
How I pity you. They're probably my favourite part of the anime.
>why did Doki have to be so bad
Then who do I blame, if not decade?
The locks are god tier toys. They have functions and sounds out of the ass. Most importantly, they work and have sounds even if you don't have the belt. I think that's a key part of why they are so successful.
>In other news everything's still the same which proves Doki is shit
Go away faggot.
So what if Aikatsu steals Precure's budget? Fresh was awesome.
Doki is good.
Use Saucenao if you want to find the pixiv image of a picture, it links to pixiv.
I wonder if he'll really get enough screen-time. I mean, the OP makes me thinks that but who can say.
I wonder, how positive was the reaction to the first episode of HaCha from Japs?
That's just for Bandai's business. Precure as a whole made 63 billion yen in 2012. That's a very big difference between Bandai's business, and the whole Precure business. http://archive.foolz.us/a/thread/101573901/#q101590668
I'd say that even there was no ups or downs, that both Rider and Sentai are having their most successful runs in years, while Precure is still the same and Aikatsu is upping it is a worrying matter on it's own.
I want to go on a trip with the Smiles
Why is her right leg dislocated from the hips?
You're right. It's the worst since splash star.
What so remarkable about that?
Why is Nao so fat
Why did you reply to it. Don't reply to it.
>So what if Aikatsu steals Precure's budget?
Well that would be hard considering Aikatsu is by Sunrise, not Toei
Well, putting a boy in the OP hasn't been seen since I think the Fresh OP.
I want to hang out with the Smiles as they visit Gothenburg.
We'd go to Botaniska Trädgården, Liseberg, Feskekörkan and Saluhallen.
She isn't, because she's running so much.
I want to go jogging with her
Not much different from ours, really.
Most called Dokidoki boring, and hope that HaCha does better
Also Hime = Erika 2.0
>I wonder if he'll really get enough screen-time. I mean, the OP makes me thinks that but who can say.
He's like the first non-cure to appear in the OP. I'm sure he'll be pretty important. I say maybe Megumi will even tell him she's a cure and he'll help her, I don't know.
I wish they divided the whole going around the world thing into several episodes, even though that episode was god tier.
Anatomy is hard.
I don't remember Fresh's OP visually but this dude is right next Blue and two of the main cures for more than a second, that has to be SOMETHING.
Are you that sad faggot who kept shipping Rika and that kid?
>I say maybe Megumi will even tell him she's a cure and he'll help her, I don't know.
that would be nice to happen.
have him come up of excuses in order for her to save the world
I just want to know why NotKouga is in the mirror behind Blue in the OP and if he's the Dark of this series
>even though that episode was god tier.
Smile has multiple god-tier episodes.
>I just want to know why NotKouga is in the mirror behind Blue in the OP
>and if he's the Dark of this series.
You answered your own question bub.
>have him come up of excuses in order for her to save the world
That's Yuuyuu's job. Ribbon is Cure Honey.
>Ribbon is Cure Honey.
>There are people who still think this
>There were people who thought Ribbon was Yuuko
>There were people who thought Seiji was Yuuko
Sorry for asking for spoonfeeding but could someone be kind enough give me the link to Haruyama's site?
And in the end, they just didn't announce her seiyuu because she has no experience.
Well you see, the reason I bring up if he is the Dark Precure of the series it means that he can beat the HapCha's into a pulp every time he shows up and that's important to know if that's going to happen or not
Actually, I'm going with the theory that she is a debuting idol
Type haruyama into danbooru and you should be able to take it from there.
Oh my sides. I just got a Seijifag butthurt so much. Thanks for the reply, though.
What kind of music do the precures listen to?
Mana - generic upbeat jpop
Rika - ?
Makopi - Linkin Park
Alice - classic
Get that u>>101634034
>Rika - ?
>Rika - ?
Seriously, if you're watch HaCha for bastards like him, then I pity you even more. Precure is about girls becoming magical girls and fighting evil. Not shit pricks who are just there to be heterofag-pandering machines. Go watch Free if boys are your interest.
>Why did you reply to it. Don't reply to it.
I'm so sorry. What have I done.
>Makopi - Linkin Park
I want Seiji to be Daisuke's second coming only he actually gets the girl this time because Megumi is not a bitch.
Seiji isn't interested in relationships though. I'm pretty sure he'll just be the self-insert for little boys who love precure but are afraid to get beaten up if they admit it.
Honestly, he really looks and acts the par of the "male best friend", with Daisuke there was obvious tension between him and Love.
>I want Seiji to be Daisuke's second coming only he actually gets the girl this time because Megumi is not a bitch.
Holy fuck. Have retarded hetfags like you gone this low? I can't wait to see you cry like a bitch when Megumi becomes Mana 2.0 or gets along with another girl or something.
What's wrong, you scared of a little het?
>watching PreCure for the boys
I think you have the homos.
>Replying to it
Please don't insult the Rabu
So who is the most hetero precure? I guess we can exclude anyone from doki. Maybe Love, because she almost had some kind of relationship going? Or Akane, who felt in heterosexual love?
Yeah, a good number of these too. Most episodes where they went around and find one of Majorina's inventions were god tier.
I'd argue Daisuke eventually does get the girl, but that's up for interpretation. I don't think we'll see any romantic conclusion from HaCha though.
I wish I had time to paste Daniel Bryan's face on that shit prick right now.
>watching another boy get the girl
Is that really Cure Ace? Her face looks completely off.
Into the trash...
>I'd argue Daisuke eventually does get the girl
I too had dreams once
>Honoka and Alice
What is Megumi doing with a bitch.
I can't believe I took the bait. I am shame.
Or, with any luck, any romance at all.
Girls get cuter when they are in love.
Oh you know as well as I do it's already coming.
The trick here is the amount
That's what he says, but Megumi becoming a Precure will ... probably drive them apart.
But watching others fall in love makes me angry and sad.
MKTN, since she's KNPK.
They're fictional characters. Fictional. Characters. Am I getting through to you at all?
That's your problem if you can't make yourself happy.
>you can put them together
HAS SCIENCE GONE TOO FAR?
If I believe in them hard enough they become slightly less fake!
I miss this so much.
I pity you.
You're admitting Rikka was straight?
That's your fault
I’m just saying, that "Not-telling" was too playful to be a rejection the way I see it. I imagine at some point they eventually get together.
No hope for the two dudes circling Daisuke though.
I don't feel strongly about romance one way or another but I guess it'd be pretty cool.
Are these the gummy bears with cards or what?
>No hope for the two dudes circling Daisuke though.
Guess they'll hook up with each other.
Me neither. I just feel that if it's there, it's not wasted like old magical girls used to do (kind of)
What is she thinking?
why the fuck am i doing this pose
>I wonder what meaning this pose has
good lord this was beyond adorable
They're the cutest couple.
This is like the most important thing I remember from FW
Who's telling her to do it? Hime?
>erasers are black
>chalk is white
Clearly this is a metaphor for the entire show.
>i wonder how much money he's going to pay me to suck his dick
Thank you kindly.
They know in advance how much they're going to charge for happiness.
> hairy arms and chest
>i am sorry anon, i am helping Ojii-san today
That's what happens when you get older, anon.
Unless you haven't realize, azns doesn't have hairy arms.
You ain't got no arm nor chest hair?
I hope you're joking.
Not a single strand of chest hair above belly button level, and hair on arms is thin and blonde so it doesn't stand out unless you look closely. 20 years old by the way
Not a single strand of chest hair above belly button level, and hair on arms is thin and blonde so it doesn't stand out unless you look closely. 27 years old by the way
don't generalise, man, not cool
I love this artist for his Bara art.
Reminder that asshole Mana is the best Mana.
Welp, time to watch the Yes5 movie so I could start watching GoGo.
Now that I'm done with all Precure shows besides GoGo it's finally time to revisit the old teams. I should get around to watching the crossover movies too.
I made an error and corrected it. Think what you want.
At least the glasses dude once succeed luring Inori, only to be NTR'd by White Tiger-kun.
The bald dude is totally hopeless.
I want to touch Honoka's Honokas.
>highest first episode since Suite
Is Precure saved yet?
>only 5.8 as rating
This is the most beautiful Precure ;_; I don't want a fucking retool
Miki probably doesn't like them short.
It's the first episode, so many people watched before they even formed an opinion. Why do you think it matters?
We'll find out in a few months.
>Precure is saved
>get to trash Dokis for nearly ruining it
>Precure isn't saved
>blame Dokis for it
These are the critical questions we need to ask ourselves.
>Precure doesn't need saving
>Because Dokidoki was awesome
My personal favourite scenario.
Everything needs saving all the time, this is just how it works.
What are you rolling for? Her face when you confess?
Sharing a watermelon slice with Tsubomi!
Normal panties are the best.
I want to save that smile.
For when she sees my penis
Don't know why that pic reminded me of Bebop, but I couldn't help myself.
That chart is missing something.
Can someone post the gif of this? I love this moment so much.
Also, I forgot how straight Yes5 is. Feels kind of weird.
Also, was Komachi's voice always this high-pitched? I could have sworn it sounded different.
Man Nuts was so handsome with that outfit.
Komachi's voice is the worst no matter what pitch. So bad.
> Akane episode
> giant fire sword
> next one: Reika episode
> no ice sword
> she barely kicks Akanbe of the week twice
Is that a bong Akanbe?
>he doesn't know
Oh, you're in a for a treat.
I hate it when they do this. Why don't they keep the same voice?
Japan is really bad at that. Especially kids shows.
Just guessing, but it would probably just be awkward and not as funny.
Probably more that it would confuse the kiddies.
I guess Aesir fucked up somewhere.
>Not liking the hair changing when they switch
Or you did. Didn't happen to me.
You fault for not downloading doremi.
Agreed. Downloading subs from a group that hates the show is never a good idea.
It's on your end buddy.
It's you bro.
It can't be on his end, look at the station logo
Be sure to visit the old Landala water tower and watch the view. It's a secluded romantic place, and who knows what could happen.
Maybe your download got borked?
That's some weird ass shit.
Look at the filenames, I'm using the same release as him and it works just fine for me.
It has to be him.
What media player setup do you use?
I want her to step ony me with those feet.
What the fuck
>Implying she isn't on top
It's during the scene transitions only, not the entire scene.
Anyway, that was a great episode. Is Smile generally like this?
Looks like I was fucking frames up back when we were doing Smile too! Okay apparently there were some weird 60i scene transitions because Toei is arse and hates you. They're on Blu-ray too.
Well, the process has been changed to catch these things now so no worries.
It's kind of a drag in the teens, but from 18 on it's all uphill.
Yeah, lots of fun and weird things happening in the episodes where they discover things Majorina dropped.
I'd give examples but it's more fun to be surprised.
How exactly does those things end up in Japan? How do they fall from their hideout?
>Looks like I was fucking frames up back when we were doing Smile too!
Strange I never noticed this when watching Smile, probably too busy smiling.
I guess it's time to post Smile pictures.
Smile is a very silly show. I loved it, personally.
Am I the only person who notices this?
What exactly is/was going wrong?
> implying there is a wrong time to post smile pictures
It's actualyl pretty deep and thought provoking
All the Y5s
Regarding the musical episode thing we talked about earlier, Smile would have been the perfect season to do that.
It's magic son, I ain't gonna explain shit.
I feel bad for not noticing that.
Romance isn't always a bad thing. It was pretty interesting in Y5.
It's only bad when it's wishywashy and goes nowhere. Like FujiP.
how foolish of me
Oh I know it's interlaced, but all nihonese tv content is interlaced (as far I can tell).
There's definitely been some deinterlacing happening, because otherwise everything would look like that. So why are certain things messed up?
It's been two years, and I still haven't stopped smiling.
Remember, follow the 道 and be Ultra Happy, friends.
> It was pretty interesting in Y5.
Even the single first love episode in Smile was nice and had some great character development moments.
I think the OP/ED had a different frame rate or some shit.
As long as the characters aren't completely generic pieces of shit like FujiP, it can be interesting even if it goes nowhere.
There's enough Ira and Rikka fanart/fanfiction on pixiv to prove it.
I'd go the full way with her.
>Not liking the squeak of a shy girl in love
Robinho pls go.
I'd walk the path to heaven with her.
>They're on Blu-ray too.
Does that mean you're encoding the BDs?
>Am I the only person who notices this?
>What exactly is/was going wrong?
Okay so you know what telecine is? Basically, film is normally made at 24 frames per second, but television is broadcasted either at 25 (most of EU) or 30 (NA, Japan) frames, or to be more precise, 50 and 60 half-frames (fields) per second. This is mostly tradition coming from when tv sets were heavily dependant on voltage (which is why it's different between countries - 220 vs 110). ANYWAY. In order to display a 24 fps footage as 60 half-frames it was basically separated into fields (1 pixel wide odd and even numbered lines) and then played back in a certain pattern. Because TV sets used to be interlaced (only displaying half the frame at a time) human eye did not notice it. Nowadays, pretty much all displays are progressive, but tradition in broadcasting is still going strong because of many compatibility reasons.
So Precure has always been digitally mastered, up to Heartcatch inclusive it was animated at up to 24 fps, then the footage was digitally telecined and then edited. Basically, you can converge it back to 24 fps and play it back progressively. Starting with Smile, large chunks of the footage became mastered progressively at 30 fps (ED was still telecined) and with Smile even the ED was progressive (although it was ultimately still 24 fps, it's just no telecine was used, simply duplicating frames). So the gist of the problem is that despite all these shenanigans the footage is encoded at 60i because... well, more reasons. That allows telecine and 60i effects to be put in literally anywhere during the footage. Since most of the footage is progressive, naturally I assume is all is, and just take care of the ED (duplicate frames -> jittery playback, so have to get rid of that). But lo and behold, there ARE actually segments that require deinterlacing or inverse telecine. In addition to that, not only ED uses duplicated frames now, but henshin does too.
Variable frame rate and shit. Should be simple enough to manage, Commie also released a raw of it without issues.
So basically here's what you have to do in order for it to be perfect. Take the footage, determine which segments run at 24 fps (those are to be decimated), which run at 30 fps, which run interlaced (these are to be bobbed i.e. deinterlaced) then apply appropriate filters where necessary, which results in a variable frame rate encode. This way there's no combed frames, and no occasional duplicate frames which make the footage appear jittery.
No, FLSnow encoded Smile Blu-rays. If you look at these sections, they're poorly bobbed. Better than what's in AA raws, but still not perfect.
>Starting with Smile, large chunks of the footage became mastered progressively at 30 fps
Isn't Suite the same? The CoalGirls release is ~30 fps. Although they may well have fucked it up because it's constant, and it should be variable.
That's a big part of it. People always go on about how Y5 has a fully characterized and multi-dimensional cast, and though that has to do with many factors a big part of it is the romance. By putting these characters under some sort of tension, we can get a better idea of the kind of people they are. Same reason why fights can be so emotional.
Rikka and Ira is more of a unrequited love anyways.
Uh, yeah, Suite is the same. I think Zero-Raws upload is the best for that, right now.
>you will never read a mindfuck selfcest Precure fan work
Why not, Japan god damnit!
thats far too lewd.
Actually, is it? I've just gone a portion of the show, the OP, and the ED. I haven't come across any repeated frames, because they have things moving every frame.
Fuck, it's been pointed out, I can't help but notice it. Damn you all I wish I stayed ignorant.
That font is ugly
I mean, Suite is also mastered at 30.
Use Commie's raw for ep1, ep2 on this shit will be gone.
Who is the best tomboy cure and why is it Sunny?
silly, thats not Hibiki
Finished the Yes5 movie. It was pretty great.
I wonder why they didn't use the movie forms in the show itself.
Also, Mirror Precure Dream was hot. Funny that everyone fought their Mirror Precure and only Nozomi befriended hers.
Time to start GoGo. I hope I'll like it more than I did Yes5.
FujiP was just horrible. Ouji and Mai's brother also never really went anywhere and weren't exactly unique, but at least they weren't as screen time consuming.
Seiji will probably turn out to be the better ones like Daisuke. It'll take a lot for him to be better than Nuts or Kiriya though.
Blue will turn out to be like Joe or Kaoru rather than a full blown love interest. Megumi will crush on him, but that'll simply be a motivation for Seiji to take action rather than anything else.
Thank god my laptop screen is shit. I rarely notice that type of thing.
I don't like it either, but a lot of people were saying it's fine. I doubt it will be changed. I really hope it is.
>ep2 on this shit will be gone.
>Time to start GoGo. I hope I'll like it more than I did Yes5.
It does some things better, and some things worse. Overall, I'd say that it's about as good for different reasons.
>Use Commie's raw for ep1, ep2 on this shit will be gone.
I just don't understand why it's been a problem for such a long time. Did nobody see it with Smile?
It wasn't a big problem in Smile and public encoders don't care about quality which is why you see people like Commie and Daiz complain about them a lot.
Anybody have the Aesir (not Aesir-Anxious) scripts for Smile 1-5?
10/10 subs. I hope we get more episodes.
Filename is a bit misleading, don't you think?
I hope one day Precure is animated at native 1080p, that way Daiz might pick it up.
Not at all.
I hope [Seaside] continues classing up Precure.
More excuses to rewatch
Fuck, I didn't realise.
Isn't it already mastered at 920p or some other over-720p resolution?
Fuji-P wasn't really bad, just generic. I didn't actually mind him.
Got you. Here's hoping these are reasons that are more appealing to me.
Kurumi and Echo are the only cures whose animated materiel they belong to I haven't watched now.
But Daiz loves his 1080 line art.
You know what else Diaz loves?
No finishing RnL. Hurry the fuck up.
She's not even the best tomboy in her show
>Fuji-P wasn't really bad, just generic. I didn't actually mind him.
The problem with Fujipi (and with Ouji by extension) was that he was just there to be hot and to be swooned over. He had no real agenda so the episodes felt like they were worthless. Also, this happened in two seasons and it still went nowhere.
That's why Yes 5, Fresh and that one episode of Smile made it feel better because they made it work in the story better.
>She's not even the best tomboy in her show
But she is.
Really? Doesn't look like that. Maybe something around 720p.
Yayoi > Akane > Nao, and Nao is still the best tomboy.
Akane is more feminine that Nao.
>Yayoi better than any of them
I'm polishing up the script before I put it up on Nyaa along the autism edit. If people liked it and want more, I could be up for it. I wouldn't want to run the joke to the ground too fast though.
I'll fight you and win cunt.
Wow, you guys were not kidding about GoGo's opening. This is really really awesome.
That's true. I appreciated him being there to show another side of Nagisa but it does overstay it's welcome sometimes, plus it doesn't really go anywhere in the show. In the manga bonus chapter they technically go on a date but Nagisa skips out in the middle so she could help Honoka so eh.
More than once is probably pushing it.
I was thinking of doing an Australian language version of episode 2 though.
>More feminine than the mother figure of the group
- great humor
- likes to draw manga
- loves rider and super robots
What's not to love?
That font is fine you nigger. And by the way, that was the other way around. It is in fact getting changed because of a bunch of vocal faggots that kept complaining about it to no end.
I don't want to hate Yayoi but every time I look at her, I just know she exists to be the biggest sellout imaginable to the big friends and something Toei does not need to continue with ever again.
But at the same time she loves giant robots and toku and that's like everything I desired.
It's a conflicting feeling
>What's not to love?
She isn't ultra-happy.
And then there's this faggot. Get your shit taste in check, how could you even consider doubting this?
I think you're just overthinking things you read on the internet. She's just a character in a kids show you fag.
Man, these bad guys. Will SHT be perfect this season?
She's pandering directly to you. What's not to like?
Maybe there are some little girls that like toku too, especially since it airs right next to pc?
Was the moral of this episode really "sometimes you try your hardest but you still lose" or did I miss something, because that episode was a real fuckin downer.
Still one of my favorite Smiles.
There is no moral. She just lost. The end. Commence feels.
I don't want to be pandered to when watching my little girls cartoons! Pandering to me is bad. When you pander too much to big friends the line between "innocence" and "otaku" gets closer and closer to being crossed. It needs to stay snide enough to be considered unintentional or "just a wink" like Lolipop's nopan
So it's agreed then. Toei has decided that dapper as fuck villains are in this year.
>Even if you might lose you should still try your best
Or something like that. I think.
According to anibin, HaCha's mastered at 1600x900, just like Dokidoki.
That episode was to teach the kiddies what a punch in the gut feels like.
Pandering is just a ghost that doesn't exist. There is no pandering here, just Yayoi. She happens to like hero shows and she wink in her transformation and that it.
If you like her then that's enough, isn't it? Why do you need to let something stupid like that ruin your enjoyment of her?
Pandering does exist. But it's actually so ubiquitous that there is nothing out of the ordinary about Yayoi whatsoever. Except maybe effectiveness.
By the end, we'll have the entire thing trollsubbed ourselves.
I don't know how to feel about this.
Oh Nozomi, you're so silly.
Isn't that the standard for Toei shows these days?
Sometimes you try your hardest but the director is an asshole. Goodnight.
Yes, I think so.
I think I remember there being an English blog like this, anyone know it. I can't remember it's name.
>watching little girls show make by men
>NO I DON'T WANT TO BE PANDERED TO
Shut the fuck up you faggot
These are some neat outfits.
I started watching Fresh and I'm liking and it has gotten me interested in the rest of the series. I'm kinda considering skipping Heartcatch and doki though. Opinions on most parts from some of you guys?
Dear god why would you even consider that?
Don't consider skipping HC until you watch it at least.
Why skip the indisputable best installment since Futari Wa?
New henshin item sucks but the transformation itself look pretty good.
Don't skip anything. You can join on the ongoing show but both Heartcatch and DokiDoki are great so I don't see why skip them.
I say watch Futari wa and go up from there. Max Heart and GoGo are sequels seasons.
Dokidoki > Splash Star > Heartcatch > Fresh > Smile > GoGo > Yes 5 > Futari wa > Suite > Max Heart
It's too early to tell for HappinessCharge, but it seems pretty high-tier.
Watch them in order from best to worst. They'll grow on you, so it'll even out some and you'll want to watch them all eventually.
>Dokidoki > Splash Star > Heartcatch
>Smile above Yes 5
Okay let me just stop you right there
Don't skip HC. You'll regret this.
>Implying you weren't just self-inserting into the gaijin
>Cure 75 IQs
>Implying you weren't just self-inserting into the gaijin
No, I don't do that. I can, however, appreciate a well-done episode
What's with this shit recently
Yeah that was a mistake, I was just looking for toq images on google.
Woah damn looks like I damn near fucked up on considering to skip HC. I'll give it a shot then. What about Doki though? I saw some talk of harem stuff in it early on in this thread and that kinda turned me off.
Please tell me this is a thing
Don't skip any of them.
Hang on, let me change my renamer to prefix images with that
Be serious here for a minute. It's a children's show.
Don't skip them no matter what you hear.
Though that harem stuff isn't exactly a joke
The yuri harem thing was just a joke. If you can't take yuri subtext, then Precure isn't for you.
I don't think it worked.
DokiDoki is the last season so right now it's the one being criticized the most. It has it's faults but there isn't a single bad precure season if you ask me.
Other people might disagree so you'll have to watch and make your own opinion about it.
It should be safe to save DokiDoki for last, so even if you aren't sure about it there are plenty of good seasons before that too.
Yes it is.
I'm not sure where to put Doki Doki as far as recommended watching lists go. On one hand, part of the fun is seeing how they mix the first and second eras, on the other hand, it can be accessible to people due to plot arcs, and fast pacing even with the slower third cour.
Why the hell would you skip the best Precure of all time?
Personally I wouldn't use it as a starter series.
Huh, apparently Toei's been using 1600x900 since at least Yes5 GoGo.
Dokidoki is a great starter series. The overall quality is high, and the higher plot focus is easier for a newfriend to get into than MotW-driven shenanigans. And like Fresh or Heartcatch, it balances humour and drama well.
>how they mix the first and second eras
Care to elaborate?
Man, Coco came back and not even a hug or anything? Disappointing.
Also, the QUALITY is off the chart. It's like they started a new season when they had budget for nothing besides the transformations.
I think that especially because a part of the show breaks the mold a little it should be kept till after you watched a few seasons but I'm the sort of guy that believes production order is the best order anyway.
Anything but a starter series should be fine though. If we're breaking the production order then it should be fine to pick whichever series you think looks good. Precure doesn't have enough series to justify putting that much thought into it and most seasons have their own thing going for them.
It's just minor things like KJ design being based off of Dark King and Akudaikhan, and Ace being a hyper exaggerated first era kill'em all Cure as far as the first era goes. The second era references include the VotW monsters and the Cure's focus on redemption.
>and the higher plot focus is easier for a newfriend to get into than MotW-driven shenanigans.
Well see the problem with that is the plot focus doesn't really lead to much (and is also terrible) and more importantly none of the seasons are like it, not even in a good way. It's unbalanced character focus particularly in the second half has a bigger chance of turning someone off than otherwise and if you want to ease someone into the MOTW format, there are multiple other series that do it better without tripping all over itself like Doki did.
Basically it has like the exact problem as recommending Kamen Rider Hibiki as someone's first Rider series.
>higher plot focus
When the plot doesn't go anywhere and is generally uninteresting, maybe it's better to not focus on it.
It's fun when the threads are full of silly speculah but if I were watching it now without that discussion, I doubt I'd even give it a second thought.
Doki should be recommended as a starter series to /u/fags who for whatever reason decide not to ask for a recommendation on their own board. That's it.
I haven't watched Hibiki yet but if that translates to a fantastic first half and a rather disappointing second half then I more or less agree, sadly.
I don't know, those are the kinds of parts I think are pretty fun to marathon.
>the plot focus doesn't really lead to much
It leads to plot. Things are set up and then resolved. Events happen. What are you looking for?
>(and is also terrible)
>none of the seasons are like it
Nothing wrong with that. Other than the two seasons with sequels, none of the seasons are really like any other season. People have been reccomending Heartcatch for years, and until HaCha, there was no other season much like it.
>It's unbalanced character focus particularly in the second half has a bigger chance of turning someone off than otherwise
Doesn't stop people from reccomending Futari wa. Dokidoki's focus problems are exaggerated anyway.
>if you want to ease someone into the MOTW format, there are multiple other series that do it better
Which ones? The reason Dokidoki's MotW are better to ease in with, in my opinion, is because they're not heavily in focus. They don't get major focus like in Heartcatch, they don't drop plot coupons like in most seasons, and they aren't terribly formulaic like first era seasons.
>Basically it has like the exact problem as recommending Kamen Rider Hibiki as someone's first Rider series.
That's a pretty extreme claim. Hibiki's whole second half should never have existed. Dokidoki's second half includes its last cour, which is fantastic.
It went more places than average, by far. Where did you want it to go?
Don't lose your way Hime.
>This is mostly tradition coming from when tv sets were heavily dependant on voltage (which is why it's different between countries - 220 vs 110).
Actually the key factor was AC frequency (60 Hz in NA, 50 Hz in Europe).
That aside, fuck Japan forever for editing shit after telecine. I mean, what the actual fuck?
I have no idea of what I am doing.
Does it work? Can you get it? Is it on? It literally is the first time I am trying this.
>all these trollsubs
You aren't funny. Stop.
Well, I think he's funny. Now what?
The problem is running the joke into the ground. I thought the first one was pretty good.
That's why I'm trying to figure out how to post them elsewhere and not post here every time.
I get the satisfaction of knowing I'm mediocre.
I'll try not to.
>Nothing wrong with that.
No, there is something wrong with it because it executes it poorly
>Other than the two seasons with sequels, none of the seasons are really like any other season. People have been reccomending Heartcatch for years, and until HaCha, there was no other season much like it.
Because HeartCatch executes itself well
>Doesn't stop people from reccomending Futari wa.
No, but it is what stops people from recommending Max Heart which is where the actual character imbalance is particularly noticible
>Dokidoki's focus problems are exaggerated anyway
No they most certainly are not
> They don't get major focus like in Heartcatch, they don't drop plot coupons like in most seasons, and they aren't terribly formulaic like first era seasons.
If you want to get into Precure, you would want to be used to any of those things
Mana being such a shitty character ruins its yuri appeal.
By the way, are you even seeding the damn thing? I can't download shit.
Yeah, I think the trollsubbing thing has kind of overstayed its welcome at this point
Does anyone have a gif of Milk writing letters?
>implying /u/ cares about the actual characters
I've seen yuri anime. That's not a concern.
>Actually the key factor was AC frequency (60 Hz in NA, 50 Hz in Europe).
Oh, oh yeah, that's right. What was I thinking.
Count on my being good at physics.... or anything.
That's what I mean, I'm trying to seed it and it locks up or something. I think I'm missing something.
My. Fucking. Heart! This should be done to all cures regardless of series.
Fuck that looks painful.
The same artist has done some more with Miyuki, though I don't know if anyone else does it.
Get this ureshii off me
This artist must have done like 300 Miyuki pictures already. I bet the dude has a Miyuki shrine in his closet.
Why don't you have a shrine to your favorite Cure, Anon?
Because I love them all.
>a Miyuki shrine
I need to build one of them
Why makes you think I don't?
>implying I don't
Because I'm a NEET.
Can you describe it to us?
This stops you how?
Miyuki artist guy is my favorite. I wish I could draw mai waifu in a million different ways like that. Or draw at all.
>tfw no favorite cure
Don't worry Natsume, I'm sure your pure feeling have reached her!
NEETs have no money and you don't want your shrine to suck right? You need to buy nothing but the most expensive scented candles you can find.
Drawing's too hard. You can at least buy stuff related to your waifu, I guess.
I need a fig like this.
No money means no shrines.
Alice also has the best character songs of the Dokis. Mai Fuchigami has an amazing voice.
She sings the outbreak company ending theme, it was pretty nice.
Megumi hasn't been around long enough.
Well that was embarrassing. I redid it from scratch instead and uTorrent is giving me the 'sharing' sign now, but you'd need to download the new one instead. http://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=520505 Sorry if this is intrusive.
Don't worry, thread dies in 14 minutes.
>Komachi gets an energy disc
You can still save the files with it if you use the save-current-image feature directly rather than save-on-click.
>NEETs have no money and you don't want your shrine to suck right? You need to buy nothing but the most expensive scented candles you can find.
I strongly disagree. The best shrine is one made with LOVE! You can't buy love!
Her singing for that kind of reminded me of Minori Chihara.
>You can't buy love!
You can, it just has too much demand you can rarely find it on the market.
I want to suck Mana Sue's cock.
>e the save-current-image

Yes you can don't be silly.

Oh, I figured it out. I never knew this feature existed. Thanks.
>not posting magnet link
Syrup stop being a shmuck.
She is not. She's just going to the beach.
>Going to the beach
>Not a slut
The only place she'd be pure in is the basment.
That's where she goes when she makes housecalls.
Now you're just being an idiot.
Ugh, don't ruin the basement for me. Is nothing sacred anymore?
Why would a slut's basement ever be pure?
