It's dropping in rank. Worry.
If this is going to turn into a general, it'd probably be more efficient to have >>101664827
those two posts in the OP.
i didnt expect rin and mei to overtake medusa.
I passed through futaba today and couldn't help but notice our WCW threads aren't so different.
I guess I'm the only one who liked CGI Madusa
You're probably right.
If I start another sometime I'll do just that
Not really, that's an hourly ranking, which means that it rises and falls depending on time of day and how long its been since an episode aired, and such. Its been this low before in the last couple days, and as long as the episodes keep being this good it'll shoot back up again every week.
Where was it before? How's it ranked?
>Miyuki Sawashrio and Mamiko Noto talking within a short time of one another
Ranked ahead of all other winter anime. Sales continue to increase. The original post was merely a jest, no need to worry.
That polka dot ribbon Medusa wears in her snakes/hair... so cute
Ello Ello Ello....Wot av we ere then?
Nips confirmed for good taste
Well at least they're paying attention anyway. It's still largely flying under the radar here in the west, even on 4chan.
I think a lot of people mistook this show for cheesy harem or bad Rom-com thanks to a rather misleading first episode.
But at least it's getting lots of positive attention in Japan, which realistically is the only place that matters.
>89 votes after one episode
She's just that great.
I know I almost jumped off the Tanpopo train for her. Almost.
Think we'll get any doujins?
If we do get any and she doesn't make a joke about white stuff I'll be mad.
We've only gotten half a doujin of Tanpopo so far, and she's the most popular character. But time will tell, I suppose.
>joke about white stuff
They make it every time in doujins.
Took me forever, but I finally found the manga reference...
>I think a lot of people mistook this show for cheesy harem or bad Rom-com thanks to a rather misleading first episode.
And maybe that's the reason it's getting a lot of attention in japland.
I know, but I want Evermillion to make the joke. Since she is the white stuff.
>a lot of people mistook this show for cheesy harem
Oh, boy. Remember all those "OH BOY IT'S ALREADY TURNED INTO HAREM, DROPPED!" threads?
Yes, that was a very "fun" 2 weeks
I'm glad it's over.
Why is Tanpopo so popular?
I have nothing against her honestly. I just don't see the massive love surrounding her?
It's the cat ears isn't it you shallow bastards.
Dumb Moe pretty much
Her overall looks, her voice, her constant failure, other shit.
Voice, team Rocket antics. And she's actually a pretty competent leader, she just happens to be the leader of losers.
It's because she's a failure so anons naturally feel that they can relate to her.
>pretty competent leader,
>pretty competent leader
>charges in with crappy plans and fails every time
Yes, really. Orginizing everyone, coming up with the plan, being the first to take active actions.
It's not her fault that she's weak and her opponents are monsters. And that's the only reason her plans fail.
Tactically her plans are usually decent. It's just the the power difference is hilariously massive.
Not to mention she raises morale with those karaoke sessions.
Soon the Weekend will enter the stage and show you that she can absolutely wreck witches' shit, even though she's weak.
I picked this up after hearing the ED, it was a good choice.
This artist is too based.
>caring about CGI bitch
I want to feed eyepatch's wolf poison.
Don't say that just because it's got more game than you do.
The only girl I care about doesn't get enough time ;_;
>best show of season
>one of all time top EDs
>best girl galore
>nobody picks up because first episode and looks like harem at first glance
Ahh well, atleast it means less shitposting.
>nobody picks up because first episode and looks like harem at first glance
I still don't get what the hell this is all about since /a/ fucking love harem shows despite talking shit about them.
For once I agree with you Lelouch...
Books, and cat food.
It depends. It may be that the anons who'd like WCW if they gave it a shot avoid it because they loath harems and the guys who like harems drop WCW because it's not a harem.
Also WCW isn't just a typical weak MC surrounded by strong but submissive females, it's a full gender role reversal with strong femdom undertones. That's a bit of a niche setting even for /a/.
And there's little fanservice so you can't watch it with ecchi goggles on either.
Oh shit, oh shit, three more Kannabros since the last I checked. Slow and steady.
why is wolf and forehead ahead of her?
Mei's way of looking like a high-maintenance beauty while being unabashedly dumb as a brick is charming, but so is Kanna, with her gentle deadpan and gloomy kindness. What I don't understand is Forehead - she's had the least development of the five by far.
Mamiko Noto making dirty jokes about the white stuff... That is EXACTLY what I want in my anime.
Forehead is in fact the best Tower Witch.
If Kagari weren't best witch, I'd vote for her.
They want to look intelligent, like the people who call everything bland and generic. On an unrelated note, Evermillion and Benten-sama share seiyuu, or am I mistaken?
I feel your pain.
You are right, same VA.
Why does Kanna Utsugi always have such a gloomy expression on her face?
Was this intended as a prototype only or was this canned because it was unpopular?
Anybody explain me what the hell this is?
>mfw they have the same VA.
Still higher quality than that cgi!
Seriously, what is it with the Kagaris and sugar?
>dat wolf scarf familiar
Could she be any more best witch?
Although I like to think all the witches are best witches personally
She's a lesbian too
Evermillion is damn great.
She looks better without the wolf.
But then there's no fluffy tail to touch when you snuggle her
Just Gay for Ayaka.
tfw kotetsu only have 22 votes
Maybe if she had any characterisation at all shed be more popular.
She doesn't even speak at all. And here I thought Rin was the quiet one.
>Kawasumi Ayako, Ohara Sayaka, Sawashi Miyuki and Noto Mamiko playing secondary roles
I love you so much Noto. Someday I'll go to Japan and make you my wife.
>her hair has a face
Holy shit, I just noticed that.
Liking a side character is suffering.
For once you didn't tap into your shit taste and board the Kagari boat.
Don't know why foreheads sell.
I'd be delighted to lick it.
Kazumi-chan is a dangerous person.
It demonstrates they are sweethearts.
(Or magic and energy and stuff, who knows.)
Kazumi, Kagari, Kazari, why do these names have to be so similar?
>what is deadpan
It was a prequel. Or at least Ayaka and Honoka made a cameo in it.
I want to be Kagari's bride.
Its the same with her mother, so maybe just a family trait?
Kazane or Ayaka?
Was it ever translated?
Kazane. I want to be tortured.
You won't even find the raws for it. ;_;
>I want to get along with her
awww shit mei you're so cute~
Good taste, underrated girl
I'm so happy.
Do we get lots of Evermillion? Pls yes
Medusa makes me hard
All Lamias should.
She'll sound you with her forked serpent tongue while giving you a titty fuck, are you still hard?
Though so. Maybe someone would pick it up someday?;_;
W-why would you do that...
What in the shit is this.
Are you implying something about my Pandemonium you asshole?
And then I realized that Chronoir's name reads as Blackblack Black.
Dark and edgy.
>Anybody explain me what the hell this is?
It seems the page is telling us the woman with the safety glasses is a Witch who's Sensei was herself trained by someone who trained Chronoire's Sensei. In short their masters trained together under the same master witch.
The two pages is portraying her performing "counter-spells"; she literally listens to her opponent's incantations, find magical terms in them, and then say the magically opposite terms based on her notebook, in order to prevent the spell from being cast. The opponent then started to make her job harder by mixing in unrelated incantation terms to mess her up. I wonder what happened in the end?
It was the previous work of the author. Also shares some characters with WCW. Like Ayaka and Honoka.
Oh, according to the wiki, the main character is a guy. And he gets pissed off when ever someone confuses him for a girl.
Not really. May you two live happily ever after.
Watching this scene made me cringe and laugh at the same time.
Torture is so fun~
That reminds me.
Yeah but I'd confess her anything for a hug too.
>this kid is ripped
i want to be breast feed by those.
If he had stayed unconscious just a few minutes more, his awakening would have been hilarious.
Evermillion did strange things to me. Dat voice and vaguely flirtatious manner, it fits so well.
We should see Bear Killer soon, right?
>Dat voice and vaguely flirtatious manner, it fits so well.
I wonder why that is.
>Chronoir even herself a crown
>Literally eating cat food
LEEK IN THE ASS
>not liking cat food
How the hell did Medusa manage to enter in the house of a witch?
MC's wavy mouth is the best.
I want to bully him.
She's a cat.
Honoka would have beeen fine with having his eyes and ears taken from him in exchange for curing Kagari.
He then had a fucking panic attack when he found out he had to kiss a girl.
How the fuck did this type of character get so popular? Honoka's character takes the usual bland self-insert MC stuff and then raises it to an entirely new level.
It gotten to the point where I can't even fully enjoy the rest of the show fully because my attention keeps getting drawn back to that dumb little shit.
Does Honoka ever stop being the bitch's bitch that he is or will I just have to persevere for the sake of Tanpopo-chan?
Honoka is the girl, he is just 2pure4u.
Dude, you're thinking of Honoka as a male MC when you should be thinking of him as the moe damsel in distress.
Honoka is pure and moe, best girl in show
If I read the manga, will the anime be shit for me?
Everyone acknowledge that he is a girl.
A girl called me her princess last night... I love my life so much.
>Is this looks like a face of honesty.jpg
Honoka plz go
Go back to sculpting penguins, Honoka.
She wants your "white stuff."
Penguin is love.
Penguin is life.
>>Is this looks like a face of honesty.jpg
No. That is the face of a woman about to be crushed by a landslide.
>No. That is the face of a cat about to be crushed by a landslide.
Tanpopo deceives, then feasts upon man.
I can't top that.
I want to violate Mei.
You wouldn't be able to tell he apart from the wallpaper if she didn't have that sword.
His fascination with penguins is moe.
>so infuriating that it makes Atori speak
>ehhhhhhh? not on the mouth?
I thought kazane made a contract with the city that would repair everything that gets broken using her magic? So shouldn't her house get fixed?
The contract prevents people dying, everything is reconstructed manually.
Tanpopo is too dangerous for my heart.
Goddamn Team Rocket cracks me up. They're the worst best antagonists in recent memory.
Don't you mean they're the best worst antagonists?
>tfw you will never be the one to make Rin smile
Reminder that the Team Rocket of this anime is nothing more than a collection of autistic witches that suck at their job, are horrendously incompetent, and should be bullied and mocked when seen. Do not act friendly and do not waifu them. These five are not deserving of your love.
>spending free times with friends
Having no friends must be hard for you anon.
Manga is doing quite well there so i doubt that's the case.
The people who scanlated the thing just stopped and are 7-9 chapter behind. weekend gets beaten by overly muscular mom. Sorry anime fags.
Those are some juicy lips
>weekend gets beaten by overly muscular mom
It's not good to tell lies, anon.
I really don't understand why it isn't more popular on /a/.
I'd say shit taste, but I'm generally in agreement with the hive.
/a/ is becoming more and more /v/ like after SAO and SnK.
Just look at how many who truly believe that KLK and Space Dandy are "original" and are good shows because they have no "moeshit" in them.
People dropped it after the first episode.
>yfw the VA for "Dragoons tooth" aka Kagari's mom has played so many evil bitches it's unbelievable.
>yfw shes the same VA as the evil bitch in Higurashi no naku koro ni that was responsible for annihilating hinamizawa.
New favorite character confirmed
It has no loli.
Loli Ayaka won't be in the first season.
Dragon tooth*, rather.
>the evil bitch in Higurashi
You're gonna have to be a little bit more specific.
it actually gets better with every episode
Of course /v/.
Body swapper loli was cute
popofags don't even try to hide their proxyvoting
I actually agree with this when it comes to SD >>101706431
The idea behind your post is right though.
c'mon anon give me some slack; 1st I was drunk, and second fire mom doesn't smack the bitch (I'm sure she does though ) but she is present. And weekend is neve heard of, as far as scans goes.
I almost did, but the ending caught my attention.
Glad I stayed.
Well it has constantly had a thread up every day during the week and multiple that have hit cap.
Since it is an already translated adaption there is less to spoil each episode.
Since it is a good adaption there is very little truely bad stuff to make fun of except for some out of place CGI. No real train wrecks in the plot, pacing or characterization.
There is only 1 true couple so there is no shipping war. A lot of the girls are well designed so there is less hatred towards them to create ongoing waifu wars.
By the end of the season it will rank in a lot of peoples top 3 of the winter season, and will get more popular with how many shows are true train wrecks this year.
Next episode is Science wizard, school election and likely imouto power.
Episode 7 is probably Medusa, Kazane and Ayaka fighting.
Episode 8 is likely Ayaka's past, and the deliquent witch.
Episode 9 will be some more serious training for Honoka and the start of the Weekend. It will be a wild ride from there.
Not sure if the translator added that flourish, or if it was in the original.
Either way it works
>only 1 true couple
>so there is no shipping war
That's probably it... /a/ loves its shipwank
>Next episode is Science wizard, school election and likely imouto power.
forgot to add, imouto power was in the preview so there's a good chance
I am pretty sure they will skip Ayaka's past.
The Weekend war will be too rushed if they don't. It's not essential and would make an excellent OVA piece.
Look how much of the mao-san threads from last year devolved after a few episodes into pure waifu/shipping wars.
They could keep a thread going, and burn it out fast.
Of course if WCW keeps getting more popular, I expect trolls to steadily filter into the threads.
>Of course if WCW keeps getting more popular, I expect trolls to steadily filter into the threads.
As long as it doesn't turn into week 1 and week 2 of the threads for WCW it's all good.
nobody gives a fuck what you do, you little turd. Go watch Naruto or some faggot shit and fuck right off.
It's going to be glorious when Ayaka and Honoka-kyun start to refer each other by their first names. Although it's probably going to be forever before it happens in the manga.
>Tanpopo-chan will never want your white stuff
I want to pet her & ruffle those ears...
Cats hate that
I'd like to pet that pussy too
Tanpopo is in heat and is meowing and presenting toward you.
What do you do?
God, I hope that doesn't happen. I happen to like these threads.
Thankfully, tumblr hates the show, so we don't have to worry about them.
Really? I thought they liked it because of reversed gender roles and lesbian milfs. That's a pleasant surprise.
Same sex marriage isn't allowed in Japan (IIRC) so that statement from the anime is correct, what do they have to complain about again?
This is Tumblr we're talking about, they'll complain about anything, even if there's nothing to complain about.
Some do love it for that reason, some hate it for that reason (Objectifying women, MC using women to advance his goals, etc. bullshit) and some are just normal anime fans. But for the most part the show has blown completely under tumblr's radar and has mostly gone by unnoticed or has a few bitter SJWs angry at how 2 women couldn't marry. It has avoided tumblr's mainstream, and that's a good thing.
Tumblr isn't about real, it's about feels.
Probably something about upholding the opressive norms or whatever. Because when a piece of media talks about something, it automatically advocates it.
They probably hate Mei too, those bastards.
The animal rights activists probably has her covered already
rape and dwarf fortress master race
Am I the only one that can't unhear Ritsuko and Makoto from im@s as Katsura and Mei here?
Can't really hear Makoto but I can definitely see what you mean about Ritsuko
Wrong thread buddy. Oddly enough I have the very thread you're talking about open in the tab right next to this one.
Now that you mention it, I hear what you mean. But it doesn't bother me particularly
miracle of the universe.
So which episodes had epilogues again?
Medusa even jokes about torturing them because they are so incompetent
I want to see the 5 Tower Witch reaction's when someone confesses to them.
Why is /a/ freaking out over the cat ear girl?
Kagari is much prettier.
Thank you mah nigga
>TFW you will never be carried by a girl who dwarves you in size as she vows to protect your smile
I want her to kiss me and make everything okay.
Kanna is even prettier than her mate. Everyone's just blinded by the main heroine and the cat ears.
Evermillion reminds me of someone.
This is my favorite anime this season, easily.
>Since it is a good adaption there is very little truely bad stuff to make fun of except for some out of place CGI. No real train wrecks in the plot, pacing or characterization.
Yeah, I'm pretty satisfied so far. Plus I could never remember what was going on in the manga since it came out so infrequently.
So which show that started this season caught mainstream tumblr's attention.
You're kidding, right? Sakura Trick, obviously.
Kazane is prettier than her daughter
Sakura Trick is pretty much just well animated SFW porn.
Cute voice and face
Cute villains doing cute things
Tumblr is still on their Attack on Titan phase which has kept them occupied. Second would be Kill La Kill, but thankfully it's so full of fanservice and sexual shit that they either go through mental gymnastics on why the show is 'empowering and deep' or flat out despise the show.
I do love this show, but goddamn is the MC annoying. The amounts of "I'm a complete noncombatant being willingly protected by a girl 10000x stronger than me OH SHIT SHES IN DANGER BETTER PUT MYSELF ON THE LINE FOR NOTHING EVEN THOUGH SHE TOLD ME NOT TO" puts me in mind of Shirou, but at least Shirou has an actual excuse (messed up hero complex). With this guy it's just cringe-inducing.
I like him when he's not in danger though, and the rest of the show is brilliant.
Chronoire is obviously the best one. I want to be her hitman/sex slave. Or husband
If a Yukari was inside my white stuff I'd just fap all day.
These, I don't know, post-moderns maybe? really think like a fucking cult, don't they.
I blame Gawker media (jezebel,io9, Wonkette, etc). It seems to be the nexus that spews out the ideological garbage and demagogic stupidity, that the tumblr kiddies first swallow and then regurgitate all over the web.
Maybe they could all use a good dicking from Kazane
I'm not really into big boobed oneechan but "white stuff" makes my heart aflutter.
Would you love a medusa?
Depends, would she love me back or be an abusive wife?
She'd abuse you for shits and giggles but she'd love you deep down.
Actually most of the people on tumblr loves it
>abuse for shits and giggles
Are we talking about stuff like suddenly wrestling me down for forcible kisses or actually insult and hurt me? Because if it's the former, I'm in.
Latter. Also more playful teasing than insults but you gonna have bruises.
Because she is a side character and /a/ likes to hate female lead. /a/ would hate Tanpopo to death if she were the female lead, being useless and all that jazz.
Kazane is the best grill.
Because it really isn't very interesting. I read the manga till halfway in teens and for the life of me I could not see how WCW gets a fanbase this big.
Here's my impression:
It's one of those waifu wars series(albeit with only one romance option) with a weak but important mc and LN brand cliche developments and characterization. The art looks great but the action is horribly dull because the fights are of the heroine being annoyed and then overpowering her enemies with OP powers. The only logical conclusion I can come to about the matter is that there are a surprising number of anons into femdom on /a/ and the lead lacks just enough of an actual personality for them to fulfill their self insert needs/
Also, the most baffling of all, how could this show's ED possibly be considered better than all the other good EDs we've got this season? There's plenty of others that are better both music and sequence-wise and this keeps popping up in ranking threads as often as the genuinely good ones.
How can there be a waifu war when there is no shipping possible?
The action so far has been somewhat dull since there hasn't been a proper rival enemy faction. Ayaka HAS to be overpowered compared to your garden variety tower witch since she is not just the daughter of the city's protector and her best protege, but also the personal bodyguard of the MC - there is no witch army that protects Honoka, just a handful of very powerful witches that equal an army on their own. But they're not invincible nor invulnerable - they operate under very restricted principles (i.e. proximity to MC for power source, MC must remain unharmed or else damage is transferred, etc.). The battles so far are dull because so far, the enemies have all relied on brute force, not proper strategy. But that will change. Because you gave up halfway through the manga, you have an incomplete understanding of it, so don't come bitching that your opinion actually matters when you haven't even looked at the story thus far.
And you hating on the ED just confirms your shit taste.
Yet another day with no new Kanna art on Pixiv. When will the suffering end...
way to ruin the moment
You don't need shipping for a waifu war, just waifus.
I.. I want to correct her posture.
I would argue that you would need at the very least to have waifu bashing to have a waifu war. And there has been surprisingly little of that happening. I personally am more of a Ayaka fan, but I see nothing with with Tanpopo or Mei or Medusa enough to tear them down. It's been like that in here - hardly a war.
Post was asking for why its not popular as he thinks it should be and I read more than what the anime should have covered by now. My initial impression from the early chapters didn't change very much by my dropping point so I figured I'd be able to offer him some insight for his query. Also the ed is hardly impressive in any way.
for a waifu war you need people with different waifus and a "my waifu is better than yours" mentality who keep being vocal about their opinion and throw shit at each other.
why don't people leave the ane-san?
why is that something that needs translating.
Truly the best girl
Why do women in anime always strike that stupid but sexy pose?
I don't understand.
oh god...her ear!
I want to help her carry one of those purses
>you'll never abuse Kagari
>Also, the most baffling of all, how could this show's ED possibly be considered better than all the other good EDs we've got this season? There's plenty of others that are better both music and sequence-wise and this keeps popping up in ranking threads as often as the genuinely good ones.
I want a Chronoire.
But chronowart don't want you.
>You will never surprise her with her favourite food when she gets home
It's OK, because she isn't real anon-kun.
OFFICIAL BEST GIRL RANKING
Kasumi>Tanpopo>Chronoir>kagari>Kanna>Kazane>Mei>Mikage-Sensei>Bearkiller>than the rest of the witches
Honoka has a special place that can't be quantifiably measured.
>Kasumi better than anyone
No. She a shit, and deserves to die.
Every girls is the best girl. Don't start a waifu wars pls
Dat fat penguin
Finally someone pays attention to her.
There some kotetsu fanart on pixiv.
>all these tough grills
>still no Yuu Asakawa
Would love to hear a Momoyo type voice in this show but alas it isn't happening.
Why is she so OP?
Also, why does everyone love her so much, even when she hates when they follow her around?
>Why is she so OP?
Because she is powered by a immortal and extremely powerful witch
>Also, why does everyone love her so much, even when she hates when they follow her around?
Because Deadpan is awesome.
>tons of offensive and defensive spells
>insanely difficult to kill
She has like no weaknesses besides Honoka being dead weight. I almost feel sorry for Tonpopo and company.
Why does Semen Demon have a cross in her mouth?
>She has like no weaknesses besides Honoka being dead weight. I almost feel sorry for Tonpopo and company.
Honoka is a pretty big weakness honestly. i don't feel sorry for them because they are fighting a enemy they know they have no chance of beating yet they keep trying again and again. They are just stupid, Funny but stupid.
>new best girls
They've jumped the queue but they aren't at the front.
The amount of proxying in this poll is just disgusting.
Was it rape?
if it is, they raped each other.
>raping each other
>Why is she so OP?
She has an Avalon gurl.
Without Honoka she is much weaker. It hadn't shown up yet, because she fought with weaker enemies, but when she will use only Medus's power against Kagari soon she will be beaten within 10 sec. Weekend also bomb the shit out from her, when Honoka won't be around.
Did that ever finish?
Guys, I remember few months ago that anons complained that Nisekoi should be by JC and WCW by Shaft.
How do you think would be WCW by Shinbo?
No, they would mess up all the background visuals the story is known for.
It would never be the same.
Well, at least Shaft's CGI won't be as horrible, I think.
Right, like that fucking pendant
in exchange we wouldn't get stuff like metal gear imouto, do you think that's a good tradeoff?
Nothing beast the flying scene in episode 3 (or 4, not sure which).
Manly and Pure of Heart - a deadly combination.
His mouth's gone agape beyond his chin.
I'd bully Tanpopo sexually
Honoka with fangs is so cute.
I guess if you can't pull off being rated M for manly, at least try to be moe, so that way even if your called a beta you look cute enough that a girl wants to protect your smile.
Well yeah, eventually.
He drops being a beta as he slowly feels his way into being a witch. Of course one tends to keep there head down when you have people able to create a swarm of automaton soldiers, create giant explosions, Kaiju stuffed animals, ect. Running away and hiding is the logical thing to do when you are a normal high school student.
>manly moe manlet
How else his he gonna keep that cape on?
>implying the ribbon isn't already magical
Anybody have the lewd Tanpopo pasta?
Has anyone recorded the scenes with the witches in the karaoke place?
new tanpopo image on pixiv
I cant post it, but shes receiving his white stuff
Canceled for being too popular with teenagers instead of 8 year olds.
Yeah, damn it, maybe like a final boss or something, or a new character near the end, or hell even season 2 if it does good enough
