Is Nagi no Asukara Evangelion of our Generation?
Okada is a savior of anime.
But Nagi no Asukara is not shit.
Urobutcher should look at proffessionals and learn how to write a good story with impact.
No, Evangelion will forever be known as the "NagiAsu of the 80s"
This show is just too good
Pupa is the Eva of our generation
Best PA Works show. (After RDG)
Next episode: toddler murder
This show is better than Evangelion.
yfw anime has been saved
>best PA works show
I can't tell if this post is being ironic or not
>not best PA works show
YOU are trolling here.
Is this Shinsekai Yori on a boat?
>not liking RDG
Kindly kill yourself.
Whats your beef with RDG? I bet you liked Angel Beats.
Mari Okada delivers.
Out of 3 her original anime, 2 were great - Ano Hana and this. Hanasaku was good, but did not realize its potential.
What am I looking at? I dropped it on the first episode.
>dropping the best show of the season
Why is Hikari doing that?
I can't stomach those PA works shows. Same story with hanasaku iroha and tari tari. First ep already felt like japanese dorama and just screamed "you'll get feels and soap drama just for the sake of it!"
>best show of the season
That's not Dandy, KlK, WCW, Noragami, Zvezda, LH or even Inari.
Opinion immediately discarded.
Please, Dandy is GOAT.
Dandy gets better with every episode
As Uroko-sama said: to something to appear, something needs to disappear
Miuna gained ena, Akira was born - Manaka had to die as a sacrafice. Instead, Hikari saves Manaka. So something else needs to disappear to make her live.
>that awful samefagging
Make it less obvious next time, like waiting three or four minutes between posts.
Dandy is the best original anime this season.
What involvement did Okada have on Black Rock Shooters?
I've never seen an Okada show before, besides this.
You are confusing me with Kagerou Project fans. Its not spring yet.
If you are a /v/ tard that watches 1 show in a season on toonami, sure.
She wrote the script for TV series. The plot/concept was not "hers", but it was pretty loose, so she pretty much shaped it in what it was. It was very different from OAV, and different BRS Manga and games too.
BRS was not the most relevant show, but the Okada drama was pretty good (Macaroons and Saya heh)
Nice backlog. If you actually watched this season you`d knew SD is bombing hard, is shit blasted even by normalfag critics like ANN and in terms of "original show" is pure disappointment.
Buddy Complex, NnA, Nobunaga, SF, Zvezda, Wug, Barristers are all original shows and better than it.
Nobunaga and Wug most discussed in Japan, Zvezda and NnA most appreciated this season original shows on /a/ and Wizzard Barristers movie quality blockbaster that stands out above others in terms of production, SD, with its poor Bahdi "animation" including.
Please don't mention that shitty mess.
I like NnA better than Space Dandy. By original, I meant new this season. So, Chuuni doesn't count, SYD doesn't count, 2nd cours don't count.
In my opinion, Zvezda had been a huge letdown, while Space Dandy continues to exceed expectations. There isn't even any fanservice.
Better than Valvrave.
You have low standards.
>There isn't even any fanservice.
You are losing credibility.
>There isn't even any fanservice.
>He thinks character design is fanservice.
I'm not even talking about that.
I'm saying you are losing credibility because you take "any fanservice" as a negative.
Somebody like you shouldn't watch anime.
No, I said Zvezda doesn't have any fanservice, and that's a negative. They might as well put kate in a burqa.
He lost all credibility the moment he stated SD is best original show of the season and he actually likes it.
Then you need to learn English.
Phrase your opinions better and you may get your point across one day.
What the what is Nagi no Asukara?
My fucking nigga.
Honestly I hope the ending is good because it'll ruin all the work they've put in so far, They need to get the ending spot on to top this off.
Total weeb shit. You won't like it. It's gay and has cute girls in it.
So, why are people saying that Miuna's love for Hikari is fake or "just a crush" while acting like Hikari is the only one who is genuinely in love with someone?
so it's another moe slice of life show?
How fucking shit can such a small fanbase be? These RDG cunts completely derailed the thread.
Can't wait to see manaka moving into tsumugus house and live together with kaname, chisaki and tsumugu
Hikari should move there too and make a sitcom out of it.
Miuna and sayu can join the fun, too.
So the professor lives with Akari?
Is there the OST for NagiAsu already out? Like that song that played during Miuna and Uroko's conversation?
>Caring what normalfags and 11s think
It's one of those show that makes you say "this is why I watch anime".
>That's not ...
>lists lower tier anime
>That's not Dandy, KlK, WCW, Noragami, Zvezda, LH or even Inari.
No, it isn't. That's the thing.
This show looks a bit too dark and too sad.
Absolutely. People compare it to Shin Sekai Yori and Ano Hana just because.
I want to protect his smile
rahxephon is the evangelion of our generation
Don't worry, she will.
When will they stop flirting around and make it official?
That shit was spooky as fuck.
unfortunately, all she accomplished was to make Tsumugu worried and sad.
Then Okada said, "Let the tears of Miunafags below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the Hii-kun X Manaka appear"; and it was so. Okada called Hikari and Manaka the one true pair, and the gathering of the Miunafags face true suffering as their ship went tumbling down, and Okada saw that it was good.
The oncoming catastrophe that forced the hibernation is the tsunami of tears.
I just hope Miuna doesn't die.
He even became a water scientist just to help her. Such a dedicated and caring guy
Sea God's hand stretched out reaching for Manaka as Hikari carries her into the distance.
If we're going back that far, Neon Genesis is the Neon Genesis of our Generation.
Oh my fucking god, I can't wait for Thursday..
Generation is 25 years, faglord
I wonder what kind of process was Manaka undergoing. Do you think she would really die or is this Hikari's misconception? Why do I have the feeling that Manaka decides to go back to sleep? Why are only the sea kids naked but the others aren't. Is there anything more to this?
Latest vol.1 sales results
>*3,390 Nagi no Asukara
>I wonder what kind of process was Manaka undergoing
I wonder that too. She appeared to be suffering, so I'm pretty sure Hikari did the right thing.
>Why are only the sea kids naked but the others aren't
For the same reason they appeared outside Shioshishio
That music when they were entering the barrier of Shioshishio
Anyone bothered that Uroko didn't do anything to stop them? I mean the amount of resistance he gave Akari and Hikari in episode 7 should pale in comparison to people stealing the wife of the Sea God.
Uroko never talked about offenses or anything like that, but about people. He didn't want to let Akari go because she would die.
At the end, though, he saw Hikari as a grown up man, able to take responsibility for his own actions, so he'll let him do as he pleases
just noticed that the shirt below his uniform has the same color as the shirt he wears now. So is this tsumugu's favorite color?
He wants shit to go down. He's been sitting down there doing nothing for 5 years.
I already have the version for the Tsumugu x Chisaki, just in case.
It's the same shirt. He just took off his school clothes and stretched it out. Being poor sucks.
I agree, amazing soundtrack.
It's up to the sea gd to prevent that, Uroko's only duty is to guard the seafags, plus he said "Once something appears, something is lost", they'll have to return the sacrifice.
He knows her mother right?
This fucking guy.
Seeing Shioshihio in such a state gave me goosebumps
Welp. UrokoxMiuna has set sail.
I don't know, but it's surprisingly good.
This is the look of a main character if I ever saw one.
If it were that simple she'd have moved on long ago.
Yeah she's pretty much the 2nd Cour MC
people complained that there was nothing more to Miuna's character other than for her love for Hikari. Well I guess those people can shut up now.
>Why are only the sea kids naked but the others aren't. Is there anything more to this?
The others are dead.
Also I feel Hikari interrupted something important, and that may be the reason she appears to be unconscious now.
Obviously the consquences are going to bite Hikari in the arse. He essentially rebelled against the will of (Sea) God. Hikari is Lucifer.
>The others are dead.
>Hikari is Lucifer.
>Light is Light.
Yeah because she wants to kill Manaka too. What deep characterization. Such development.
So anyone think Manaka is actually going to wake up? Will sea slug wish finally come into play?
You know it to be true.
>Why do I have the feeling that Manaka decides to go back to sleep
this is the shit im expecting from Okada, something is going to happen because of what Hikari did and its probably going to break him for a while
>Why are only the sea kids naked but the others aren't.
Why wouldn't sea kids be naked? Is this not what you wanted to see? Are you not entertained?
sorry for being a loser /a/ but I cried during the scene showing everyone hibernating
The guy guarding his store while hibernating was funny though.
Probably is the whole way around.
He looked so lonely in that entire episode,
New Nagi Asu theory. 2nd cour is purgatory
after the ofunehiki, world ended and everyone died.
Uroko is hiding something, but it reeks off bad omen for sure. That aside, it seems that Tsumugu x Manaka will be reopened next episode, and I'm okay with this development.
This show just keeps getting more and more retarded.
Also, great job, Hikari pissing off the Sea God even more.
As if the Ice Age on the surface wasn't enough, you want him to start causing earthquakes now, too?
Also, was I the only person getting Indiana Jones vibes when Hikari took away Manaka from the outstretched palm of the Sea God?
I was expecting Seaweed Tentacles to start appearing and grab Hikari by the ankles.
Or maybe even Ice Thorns since we saw Uroko-sama do that to Akari and Hikari last season.
Either way, Hikari has no right to take away Manaka.
Why wouldn't you cry? I found it messed up they had Hikari talking to his dead father.
>it seems that Tsumugu x Manaka will be reopened next episode
More like sunk for good.
He was saving her from drowning, how is that dumb?

They happened to find her right as she was about to drown? Seems a little unlikely.
Hikari assumes Manaka was drowning.
And Uroko-sama is watching over everyone.
If Manaka was actually drowning, he would do something about it.
What the fuck am I reading?
Underwater vivid out yet? Also, manaka shown to be drowning after hikari popped the bubble protecting manaka right?
but I'm serious
I cant fucking stand that artstyle. Watched a youtube video for it and the girls look absolutely retarded
Not princess mononoke btw.
someone needs to add him into the winners circle
>"your opinion isnt the same as mine!"
do people here really throw that b8 shit around this much?
I'm being 100% honest. I dont necessarily enjoy the art style, especially the girls, its weeaboo loli looking bullshit. I know that's an uneducated reason, but I cringed the whole video
It's not something I would even download to watch
instead of saying b8, give me more reason to watch it other than the cringeworthy fan service loli junk
Why should we convince you? What makes you so special?
Yeah now take a hike and let us enjoy our weeaboo loli looking bullshit.
This. I doubt Sea God will let the first real girl he's gotten to die.
So Uroko carried Tumoru to his house and tucked him in? Such a nice guy?
>Manaka wakes up just like that
There goes my ship.
I doubt Manaka will wake up right away. I mean if she did what's the point of not showing her as part of the cast in all the promo material and OP?
>I mean if she did what's the point of not showing her as part of the cast in all the promo material and OP?
To convince you that Manaka wont wake up right away when in fact she will.
To make us think Manaka is gone for good.
This appears to be false
She will wake up from her sleep while still being asleep in her sleep.
Manaka is undergoing some sort of transformation?
>some sort of transformation
I guess you could call it that.
The Little Mermaid
The past couple episodes made it clear she was gradually losing her ena as Miuna was hearing the crackling. They found her at an opportune time before it all left her.
Chisaki goingioshish to Shioshishi next episode
and its basically an equivalent exchange.
Manaka is the Little Mermaid. Wait no. Fuck.
so she's been there down there for 5 years and this only started to happen? Seems unlikely. Seems like a special transformation that happens to the sacrifice.
Who said it only started to happen?
It was probably a slow process. After all the webbing seemed to have been made out of Ena. However there is probably going to be some ramifications. Miuna will lose the Hikari either way, either he is going to wait for her, go to sleep again or some other shit
its probably set in stone that there will be a 10 year timeskip in the end and we'll see Akira in middleschool and doli daughter of Chisaki and Tsumugu
I translated the OP (the full song) tonight. A warning in advance: My knowledge of the Japanese language is far from good, and I'm sure many anons could do a better job. I just couldn't stand waiting any more and went ahead with it.
The translation is based on the lyrics in the scans of the OP, and they differ slightly from what I saw in episode 14 in Vivid-Underwater's release (notably the chorus).
The falling powder snow flutters about,
The dream I was about to give up on rises again
Like on that day
I was watching your unchanging smile
The wind that dyed my cheeks red disappeared high in the sky
-- I was always watching you, close by yet far away, always out of reach...
As I asked "Why?"
My voice trembled as well
Swaying, the moon floated above the water
Not saying a word; merely a spectator
"I'm the same, right?"
My grasping hand hurts...
On a morning on which the wind blows idly,
The leaves of the trees playfully match my voice.
I start running towards you
Only in a dream did I give chase
looking at that profile is far off; not here.
The sea rises, the evening calm is fading again.
The determination that washed ashore (the beach of) my heart is the light of tomorrow.
My asking voice resounded
Running together in the evening sky, my heart would surely beat faster,
When the sunlight shines upon that hill
My wish is starting to sparkle like a gem, ah
The ebb and flow of my mind...
- Profile refers to one's posture. Arguably not the best translation, but the alternative 'side face' seemed worse;
- I put (the beach of) in parentheses because it seems weird combined with 'ashore', yet I wanted to stick as close to the actual lyrics as possible.
- In 'my voice trembled as well', the 'as well' probably refers to the moon, as the chorus points out the similarity between the moon and the 'I' (probably Miuna). Swaying in this case could also be written as 'tremble', hence the as well. That's just my take on it at least.
Ah I love Mami. She's so amazing.
Fuck me if I'm wrong but I think you've got it backwards. The shiny skin is ena, not other way around.
As a Miunafag these lyrics hurt my soul
Its sad ain't it? It makes it seem that she gets hope only to get crushed
this is really depressing
If that's anything to go by its that she really will never give up.
Just noticed 'in the evening sky', this should have been something along the lines of 'under the night sky'. The next line could then have started with 'and' to make it 'flow' better. Must've missed it.
Godamn those tears
My sides have gone into orbit
>KLK and Space Dandy
You made me ashamed for enjoying WCW and Zvezda
Holy shit, this is that animu about the fish kids right? What the hell happened?
Watch it and find out yourself
Anyone else notice how utterly depressed uroko looks after they grab manaka? Sea god's people all disappearing to the surface, not even wanting to pay respects via ofunehiki, and when they do, all he gets are wooden pieces. Finally gets some flesh, but his asshole children come take her away. Feels bad man.
I'm sad this show isn't very popular. This is the kind of shows that make me watch anime. Interesting setting, likable characters, mystery, fantasy, gorgeous animation and direction. Original Story. I love PA Works
Do you have the original before the mspaint spaghetti
inb4 that is the original
Will sea slug wish become relevant soon?
tell me your secrets /a/
That hurt to read. I am genuinely sad now. Ray said that the song represents Miuna's feelings in cour two. She's going to be ntr'd without a doubt.
pic related, very relevant. She hates it.
rewatching some old episodes makes me cry. Episode 18 nearly gave me a heart attack. I'm such a sap.
Those things are real?
Yes they are

Well, we all know how this is going to end.
Miuna a shit
So what is this? Did it start airing in the Fall and didn't pick it up for some reason? Why is it that I saw another thread that blew up about two weeks ago? Why is it being dubbed the Evangelion of anime all of the sudden?
so sweet that she even held Kaname's hand
Two weeks ago Miuna almost drowned and survived because she gained ena then by a chance encounter with Manaka's shed ena flakes.
Uroka-sama is sad because Hikari and the gang are pissing off the Sea God more and more.
Looks like Japan needs to get hit by another tsunami.
There is no such a thing as a sacrifice you can take back.
It makes the term "sacrifice" meaningless if such a thing was allowed.
Imagine if this anime went Moses and shit, and the Sea God declares all the first sons of the heretic race mixing sea-surface couples to die and Muina's little brother ends yo dying.
Hikari has no idea who he is messing with.
Akari already was arrogant enough to turn a hundreds of years old festival into her own personal wedding.
Now, Hikari tells the Sea God to fuck off in his own domain and just steals Manaka away from him?
One thing in mythology: You never insult gods and you never fuck up a sacrifice to them.
Something bad is gonna happen in the upcoming episodes.
I highly doubt Manaka will be allowed to leave the sea.
Or Hikari will start suffering some illness from the Sea God's curse.
Manaka already got a fishknee curse.
Imagine if Hikari's head turns into a Fish.
>manaka wakes up
>the first thing she sees is Tsumugu's beautiful face
>reveals she has been longing for the sun while she was in deep sleep
We all know Manaka is going back to finish whatever she is supposed to be doing down there. Will take another 10 years. Enough time to be the same age as Akira
Why no cameo appearance yet?
So who's gonna masturbate over comatose Chisaki?
have you been watching the show?
He seems to be receiving it well.
I hope Chisaki and Tsumugu make a great Doli
Was he always this moe? This is the first time ive seen his face full of life ever since the time skip began.
There's a good chance of that happening.
It wasn't explained what that hand is? So she was sleep in this hand while here ENA was depleting.
But what is this hand? Hand of the Sea God? Why doesn't it react when she is removed from it. If the "scale" of the Sea god can run and tele-port willy nilly the Sea god himself should even have more power, right?
If that is the seagod's hand, just imagine his dick.
I like this show. It's unpredictable, except for the pairings.
yeah it's pretty damn obvious that Miuna will end up with Hikari.
no, she won't ;_;
Manaka getting knocked up with giant sea god dick doujin when?
Damn the salt statues are scary as hell
>eating pocky underwater
Getting Uzumaki vibes out of this
This shit was 2spooky4me.
Why is this show so amazing?
He caught Manaka right before she smacked into the sea floor. The cavern collapsing when they carried her out was caused by the hand going back underground.
If Manaka dies next episode due to ena loss, it'll be like snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. She could have been the Sea God's wife, but Hikari had to put his foot in it and lengthen the apocalypse.
Manaka sacrificed her ena so Miuna can have one.
>Why doesn't it react when she is removed from it.
The cavern was shaking and the episode ended before we could see Hikari taking Manaka successfully to the surface.
I'm nore interested why there seemed to be some kind of spider web or net above Manaka.
What is the point of covering Manaka in some sticky, transparent net/web?
Uroko-sama = Beast
Cour 1 Manaka = T Little Mermaid
Cour 1 Tsumugu = TLM prince
Cour 2 Manaka = Sleeping Beauty
Cour 2 Miuna = Cinderella
The SeaGod obviously wants to showcase her trophy wife.
I feel bad for the sea god now. He just wanted a waifu and all what the humans sent him was those creepy dolls.
Uroko's character is still a huge mystery. He says he's just a scale of the sea god, but he's demonstrated a lot of power like when he tried to stop Hikari and Akari from leaving. And if he's a scale, wouldn't that imply that there are others just like him? What's the purpose of being a scale anyways? Is he a fragment of the sea god? Or is he a messenger of the sea god that does his will? Does the sea god even exist?
Man this makes me feel bad about Miuna.
One of S2 episodes sad there were other sea villages around Japan so I guess each one of them have Uroko as their god messenger. Especially since the sea villagers need that holy flame.
Something like a cocoon, probably. To protect her while she transforms into whatever she was transforming into.
>[Underwater-Vivid] Nagi no Asukara - 18 (720p) [9945FB8A].mkv
This has been out for a long while now you know.
I just found out. ;_;
I wonder if the first ED was a reference to that.
Episode 1-2 hikari comes to mind watching this scene.
They don't die after losing ena. That's how the landfags were created.
She might die before she gets to the surface
Just finished the episode, the faint echoes during kaname and hikari's conversation underwater is a great touch. I guess manaka recovery will take time since she woke up underwater and losing her ena too. Hopefully no brain damage/amnesia from the lack of oxygen during the ascend. Uroko looked down since its been a while he get to talk with someone else maybe and hopefully not because of impending disaster.
Now that would be pure trolling.
I'd laugh my ass off. And cry a lot ;_;
And it was then that Uroko came out of Shioshishio. Who he was, none could tell, but he was of the old native blood and looked like a Kami. The Japanese knelt when they saw him, yet could not say why. He said he had risen up out of the blackness of twenty-seven centuries, and that he had heard messages from places not on this planet. Into the lands of civilisation came Uroko, swarthy, slender, and sinister, always buying strange instruments of glass and metal and combining them into instruments yet stranger. He spoke much of the sciences of electricity and psychology and gave exhibitions of power which sent his spectators away speechless, yet which swelled his fame to exceeding magnitude. Men advised one another to see Uroko, and shuddered. And where Uroko went, rest vanished, for the small hours were rent with the screams of nightmare. Never before had the screams of nightmare been such a public problem; now the wise men almost wished they could forbid sleep in the small hours, that the shrieks of cities might less horribly disturb the pale, pitying moon as it glimmered on green waters gliding under bridges, and old steeples crumbling against a sickly sky.

I get strong The Little Mermaid wibe from this.
There's no real surface.
There's only a tiny hole in the ice made by the humans to go diving into the ocean.
The Sea God could just cover the hole the humans made and Hikari and everyone else would be unable to break the ice to reach the surface.
>yfw Manaka becomes the Land God to Sea God's Sea God
Yes, but as I said before, it would be a pure troll if she were to die drowned this way.
Maybe they'll have the drama of "omg I can't find the exit, we're running out of time", but they would make it in the end.
Personally I hope this don't happen, it's unnecessary.
If it isn't obvious enough, Manaka and Miuna are both "Little Mermaids", except reversed where the former becomes a human and the latter becomes a mermaid. It's even reflected in their romantic pairings of unrequited love since the original story has the prince marrying someone else.
I don't know, it looks like the hole is open to me. Maybe they'll get onto the surface and then Manaka will be out of breathe and Hikari will perform CPR, but instead dies in contrast to when Miuna did CPR and Hikari woke up.
It seems like the theory that Manaka will survive as a landfag along with the little mermaid theme is most likely at this point.
But then this kind of sinks the HikarixManaka ship because Hikari would have to become a landfag too and that would defeat the purpose of forcing Manaka into being a landfag to begin with.
It's the original.
Miunafags are desperate. Hikari's smiling in the PV on the surface.
You're being retarded. It sinks nothing. They are in love, they end up together.
Go back to Oreimo with your sick incest fetish.
What does that have to do with anything? Manaka can still die and then Hikari and the others get out later.
Except Hikari and Miuna aren't even blood related and they can legally marry.
I took a different a approach and think he feels kinda sorry for Miuna. He told her all this about balance/equal exchange/zero-sum/yaddayadda beforehand, so she should know that taking Manaka means someone else has to take her place.
Miuna already got Manaka's Ena, it's only a matter of time before the sea god will grab her in exchange for taking Manaka. And Miuna will sacrifice herself in order to support Hikari x Manaka, because she's young and stupid and would rather ruin her own life for the guy she has a crush on.
>not knowing that Miuna will end up sucking Uroko's fish dick for the rest of her life.
>yfw Tsumugu will be the one to do CPR.
You know that Hikari will have to hand over the body when he reaches the hole.
No, fuck you.
Doesn't the seagod prefer landgirls tho?
That's why he rather take a half over a fishperson.
Now with more frames.
Why did the seagod conserve Manake for years, instead of using her to make a dozen of little seagods?
I hope the Sea God curses Hikari.
He's seriously way in over his head.
Manaka is going to wake up in Tsumugu's arms; the first person she's going to see will be Tsumugu. Hikari will be forced to watch yet another romantic scene unfold between them.
Why do you assume she has be conserved? Didn't it occur to you, that she was just tired and laid down that very moment from all the dickings she received all the time?

>horror fiction genre
I like that. This show lacks Hikari suffering.
Preview hints at that. Hikari's plot shield could do with some chipping away anyway.
Don't forget the noctural invasion and the Ofuneki.
Uh, it's the little mermaid reverse.
Girl becomes a 'mermaid' to be a merman but he loves another girl and rejects her.
Miuna is the little mermaid, she'll sacrifice herself like the mermaid of the tale.
at this rate, we'll have the whole episode gif'd by the time this thread ends
please make it happen. and let chisaki watch it, too.
What if the SeaGod prefers Manaka and doesnt want anyone else? The ED had to indicate something...
Ya but that doesn't add up because if Hikari is the prince than he is supposed to marry another seafag after rejecting Miuna, otherwise it wouldn't make sense for Miuna to become a seafag in the first place
Nothing specific about 'seafag', the other love interest is irrelevant. The stories don't have to match. The transformation for the sake of a man who never loved you and never would love you, leaving your world and home behind is the cautionary tale about.
The ending is Manaka playing on the surface while the first ending was Manaka sinking in the ocean.
It indicates Manaka stays in the surface.
>people liking Miuna after last episode
>even thinking she has a fart chance to win
She's a bitch. I hope she's raped by the fishermen.
If the sea god didn't want Manaka to leave, why were the Ena flakes that lead Miuna there moving up away from the cocoon?
EAT SHIT MIUNA
How do you compress gifs this length to less than 3Mb and still keep a decent aspect ratio?
1. Export video section in virtualdub
2. Every three frames video import in Photoshop
3. Resize, Retime (0.04/0.07/0.11 delay for one, two, three frames)
3. Save for web
4. Patterned, less than 256 colors (112 in that case)
So what is she going to do?
Insult the seafags just like Hikari insulted the landfags, I bet.
Miuna holding hands with both Hikari and Kaname. There should be a gif
Pervert. I'm on it.
Vdub only runs .avi right? Is there a fix since the video files are usuall wmv?
There's a virtualdub mkv plugin on sourceforge.
How can anyone hate Miuna?
It's just someone trying to incite waifuwars.
Although if I took them seriously, I'd say it's because she's going to put her foot in it. See >>101724381
RDG was fucking terrible.
I don't want you to be right, but I know this shit is probably gonna happen.
It's all outdated and crashes everytime I load mkv file.
Use Virtualdub 1.10.4. It runs fine under wine, perhaps you need to install gentoo?
But Eva is actually good.
Seki-kun is going to be AOTY anyways.
gif of Hikari breaking Manaka's membrane releasing the Ena fragments
Manaka is pic related
Yes Sea Goddess Manaka angered by her awakening.
Hikari beating up Miuna turns me on.
i dunno about anyone else, but as of the last few year, PA works has completely overshadowed kyoani in terms of shows, their original works are just so much more enjoyable to watch, and PA works is one of the only other studios that gives kyoani production values a run for their money.
one things for sure, this shits all over KNK and chuu2
This shit is irritating. You know a way to lossy gifs? i new to this.
I haven't watched the new episode. Describe it in one sentence, please.
Manaka is kill.
Prelude to further suffering.
See >>101686908 and >>97747150.
Ano Hana was manipulative, sentimental garbage.
Anon, every studio "overshadowed" kyoani.
When was the last time KyoAni did an original?
They gone. What was it?
What show is it in the middle?
>doesn't recognize Shinsekai Yori
they havent made a single good thing since hyouka
I saved my husbando's waifu and now he doesn't love me anymore.
Never even heard about it.
This thread is still here?
the only kyoani series I've ever liked was nichijou
Free is a LN adaption.
nor have i. Although i think i saw the name within the past 24 hour to be honest
What does this imply?
Usually that something has been used.
>she used her face to test and see if the ground was soft
Without the opening and ending scenes.
That's a pretty damn big and shiny hymen.
Manaka rapes Hikari in front of Miuna while she is being taken away by the sea god when?
>Sea god's Hymen broke
>Sea God is a gril
>Sea God a yuri
>pleasures herself with a ton of wooden sticks
>somehow hymen still intact
This feels much more long ago with the help of the timeskip.
>Wooden sticks laying on ground old and untouched
>Manaka in hand
You saw what she was playing with.
The way PA does glass and reflections never ceases to amaze me.
So can we agree that Manaka was made USED GOODS so hard her Ena stated peeling off?
Also, damn, a hymen breaker with a BOOT no less
Creepy ass sea god.
>So can we agree that Manaka was made USED GOODS so hard her Ena stated peeling off?
No, Manaka's Ena is NTRing her with Miuna.
is there a gif of this?
>The year of 2014
>wasting HDD space for anime
>HDD space used for anime
Get the fuck out, what are you even doing on this board?
>thinks anime is a waste
Have you forgotten where you are?
Discussing anime. You?
I only see you shitposting.
Unpopular opinion doesn't equate to shitposting.
whoops, forgot the timing ;_;
It doesn't count as opinion when it's a fact.
It does on /a/.
Willfully watching anime at shit qualities with a lame excuse like "wasting HDD space" is though. Nowadays you can get 1TB for 50 bucks and you could even delete it afterwards anyway. Unless you live in Russia and get like dialup internet there is no excuse.
This is basically like some guy claiming that eating with utensils made of frozen shit is just a matter of opinion and they are just as good as normal utensils. No, they ain't, you're just being retarded.
A fact can be proven. You can't prove an opinion.
All this new
720p streams > downloading TV rips.
>implying you get a 720p stream
Don't make me laugh, dumbfuck.
Greater than TV rips in what? Because it sure isn't quality.
No need to waste time on something I'm only going to watch once. 720p streams are on the same level as a downloading a MKV.
>No need to waste time on something I'm only going to watch once.
Waste time? You're already wasting 22 minutes on it.
So I still don't see the point where they are superior.
Because sometimes you want to watch things twice, retard. Enjoy you're wasted bandwidth.
If downloading a superior version is a waste of time, you might as well go do something completely meaningless that won't take as much time.
I don't want to watch this show twice though. If the show is a classic then I will download it a BD rip or buy the BD box.
Holy shit guys, I just wasted a minute and 12 seconds of my life by downloading a TV rip. AN ENTIRE MINUTE AND TWELVE SECONDS. During which I couldn't do anything else but stare at the download bar to see how it ever-so-slowly progressed. How will I live with myself?
Oh wait, I could have begun watching it immediately as I started the download.
By the time you waited one minute and twelve seconds I've already watched one minute and twelve seconds of the show. Downloading is inefficient for shows that you don't plan to rewatch. There's really nothing to debate here.
Maybe. The Ena doctor or Tsumugu will likely say something next episode about her physical condition. Seems that an body inspection is in order.
You are further illustrating the point that streamfags are clueless and frankly, retarded.
I'm not clueless.
If streaming is so good, how were we able to tell you were streaming? That's right, the video quality was atrocious. Fuck off.
>If streaming is so good, how were we able to tell you were streaming?
If you're talking about >>101728253
then I'm not that person. That stream quality is disgusting.
Well, you clearly are if you think you need to wait until the download is finished before you can start watching it.
>streamfags are clueless and frankly, retarded.
>I'm not clueless.
Which means you're implying you're retarded?
I like how you can't even actually bring any arguments to the table other than "you're retarded".
This is the worst gif I've seen in 2014.
Report and ignore.
Report for what? Having a different opinion?
Its like you wern't even in the thread yesterday
Pretty sad to have a young girl sacrifice her life like that. Already found it bad for Manaka.
Oh god, this font. Who the fuck thought that was a good idea? 10 slaps and a kick to the shin.
Nothing will make that gif better.
The possiblity of Manaka and Miuna becoming best of friends in a future episode makes my heart warm.
What about the possibility of her dying for Manaka?
I imagine that would be the end result of their warm and fuzzy relationship.
Butthurt Kaname end up fucking Manaka to piss off Tsumugu and Hikari.
That sounds more like rape.
>It appears that the devastation we brought upon ourselves was complete; Heaven, Hell and Purgatory were atomized as well. So when a soul leaves the body it has nowhere to go, and must remain here, in the Metro. A harsh, but not undeserved atonement for our sins, wouldn't you agree?
>720p streams are on the same level as a downloading a MKV.
Only if you download Horriblesubs. Which should only be a last resort anyway.
Now cease your faggotry and learn.
>And Miuna will sacrifice herself in order to support Hikari x Manaka, because she's young and stupid and would rather ruin her own life for the guy she has a crush on.
I think she'll try to, but Hikari will stop it. He won't let sea god have his waifu OR his imouto figure.
It was a joke, people keep asking me to change the letters's position, make the font more visible and make it not loop. I realize now I never end up posting the fixed one.
>It was a joke
An extremely bad one.
>Miuna will sacrifice herself to protect someone
Wasn't that what Manaka did for Miuna, though?
No, she did it for Akari, who was supposed to be the maiden.
Well she did it for Akari, her husband and Miuna.
there were like three posted in previous NnA threads.
>Manaka comes back
>Ratings start to drop
She did it for Hii.
>mfw i saved that when it was first posted because of the lel and these faggot don't like the font
They had to be there to get it. I think it's funny.
Fuck this, just give the sea lord a maiden doll like you did before you idiots. Akari with her stupid wish started all the suffering.
Because obviously the wooden dolls worked before.
It gave them many years of peace, didn't it? It just started to crumble because they stopped caring about god. Think Spice and Wolf, for a second.
>yfw Akari finds out that Miuna has to be the next sea slut
>she tries to take her place, but Miuna won't let her because she doesn't want Akira to feel the same way she did without her mother
>yfw it all goes to shit, Chisaki gets with Tsumugu, Kaname becomes a loner, Sayu becomes even lonelier and Hikari reflects on their childhood with Manaka.
Will Okada manage to surprise us and ruin everything, or do you expect her to ruin everything in a predictable way?
Predictable, but that won't mean less suffering, which is kinda the point of the show.
Yea this episode was pretty good but now I really feel that Miuna will have a bitter-sweet ending. The Sea God probably just took Manaka as a substitute until Miuna was old enough. It was that line from Lord Uruko about how yea, she's not a child anymore.
What would be considered predictable, anyway? Tsumugu/Chisaki and Hikari/Manaka?
Well, we've speculated just about every couple possible so we won't be too surprised unless a crack pairing happens.
I was going to say Akira/Chisaki because I thought I'm out of options but this way it's actually plausible in terms of age differences.
Yes.. YES. YESS.
