So it's already aired in moonland. Spoilers when? Camrip when?
>I have no idea what I am talking about.
What the fuck are you trying to get at? It's a movie, and there is the smallest chance we'll be lucky enough to get a camrip of it.
>What the fuck are you trying to get at?
That you have no idea what you are talking about.
Japanese people don't do that sort of thing.
Off the top of my head, we've gotten camrips of Disappearance, Eva 3.0, and Rebellion Story over the past few years. It's very rare, but it's happened before. Let me dream.
Yep, movies that were wildly expected by the western audience, and probably also camripped by tourists.
T&B is nothing in comparison with them.
Isn't the movie airing in certain states? I know it'll be airing in NYC sometime in March.
It's not out yet, bro. The Moonland midnight showing is still a few hours away.
Fucking Nips, can't do anything by themselves.
I wonder if Gilgamesh is the final boss.
Best backgrounds of the year confirmed.
Nah, Gilgamesh is a total bro.
I fucking love the architecture in T&B.
Can someone tell me who is that golden dude?
Ryan Goldsmith, aka Golden Ryan. The new Hero with gravity powers brought in by the new owner of Apollon Media.
>the term aired for something that is still playing in cinema
Stop acting like it was a one time tv broadcast.
First shown in the first movie, by the way.
He looks cool, I hope they won't make him into a filler character. Sorry to bother you, but are they skipping the rest of the TV series plot in this? There are going to be 3 movies in total, right?
There are two movies: The first movie is there to give some context to the beginning of the show, and the second movie is a straightforward sequel that takes place after the show.
Poor Sternbild, we hardly knew ya.
All day, erry day.
>The Big O S3 canned
>huge-ass earthquake during the next original show's production
>chief storyboarder arrested during the first movie's production
>apocalyptic snowstorms on the day of the premiere
Studio 6 must be cursed or something.
Oh man, I don't remember the last time I looked at my T&B folder, all that nostalgia.
>sequel to the series
I thought the second would just follow up with Jake and stuff and retell more of the series. Best news I heard today!
Hey, maybe Tiger will grow some balls and win his waifu back. Deconstruction of the NTR genre.
>chief storyboarder arrested during the first movie's production
The guy was innocent, but they smeared him all over the media and kept him in prison for two months or so.
Was he involved in that incident, I had read about it and it involving some directors but never looked into who. It was all set up in the end, if I remember correctly some hacker set them up. It was very messed up.
Yep, full list
Maybe we can get a camrip by March?
>Masaki Kitamura was released after prosecutors found his PC had been infected with a virus that could have allowed others to control it remotely and send the message.
Yeah, he got hacked and the police and media then fucked him up. Upon his release the T&B staff announced they're dedicating the second movie to him.
"The Rising" from all the shit he went through.
>吉田 健 @ken_w_joker 3h
Standing in line for 3 hours just to buy some merch. What the fuck.
If that merch is these I would do that, too.
Apparently the Bunny Kitty is sold out in one of the theathers.
What's with Bandai and Hello Kitty shit lately?
Oh boy, here we go.
>all that gold
Damn, he's really Gilgamesh.
Was that his crapsuit suit? oh god that looks... I don't know
Wait, that pose, isn't it the same as the first strailer from the rising?
>Why can't I hold all this gold?!
Needs more gold.
I am hype
Sort of, I am blind I forgot the thing was standing and with wings.
Ryan does have wings, though.
Not in the image I am pointing out behind the "HEROES" letter
Not in the image I am pointing out below the "HEROES" letter
He seems to like this pose.
>T&B is nothing in comparison with them.
Especially because those were terrible movies.
>mfw Rising goes full 3.0
>Bunny turns into a retard
>Kotetsu is a different character because why not
>Ryan is pointless as a character
Everyone blames Kotetsu.
The movie should be ending by now, but Nipland is deathly silent. Not sure if it's a good thing or not.
It's a pre-premiere showing of sorts, they will keep quiet until the main showing and events go by.
Jesus just be a little patient please.
Why didn't you stop it, /a/?
Blame the Rebuild fanbase.
>muh pokapoka Rei
>muh tsundere waifu
>muh cat Evas
So, first spoilers:
action looks amazing
Ryan's a good guy and a bloody awesome character
the writing still has its wit and humor
Fire Emblem gets development
Good end for T&B
Also Ryan doesn't stick around
I knew it.
the most important thing though There will be a second season?
How was Morita in it, has he recovered from his surgery?
Gotta be in tip top shape for the Quincy arc.
Not announced (at least for now). And apparently we can now see what Barnaby is like when he isn't being drugged and mindraped. He's a goddamn ubermensh, both mentally and physically. OP as fuck.
That's my waifu.
>Barnaby isn't being drugged and mindraped
That's not the Bunny I know
Stop reading doujin, anon.
He doesn't stick around because he gets a better offer from a different company and leaves Sternbild, and because "I knew it. Dude, you're the only partner for him.. It's a pity because everyone seems to like him now.
I don't need to, he was drugged and mindraped in the anime on several occasions.
>Dude, you're the only partner for him
So that's why they are calling him matchmaker?
spoiler tag when you reply to spoiler dude.
Sorry about that.
Anyways, I'm curious, is Lunatic relevant at all?
>JAPANESE NEVER EVER CAMRIP
That explains that whole thing in the recent Gintama movie where a camripper is a central plot character.
no moa eiga dorobou
People are saying about as relevant as the TV series.
BDs fucking when
In 5 months, most likely.
Now people are saying, in regards to a second season the movie gives them the feeling that it won't be likely.
But real life is like that so who knows.
Well, supposedly the ending is really, really good! So there is that, at least.
Where the spoilers at
There is some space for a sequel, but the story supposedly feels very complete now. I've seen it described as ‘the opposite of Rebellion'.
Guess this is the movie for you if you like NTR.
"Watching the scene where Bunny-chan and Ryan are flirting right in front of Kotetsu got my (and I'm a guy) non-existent pussy wet."
That's good, at least. Rebellion was shit.
Satan, that was true? Oh god, I like the wording.
Can hardly wait for the doujinshi.
Too bad the best NTR artists only draw straight stuff.
Don't remind me...
It doesn't last, though. Kotetsu gets Barnaby back and the movie ends with Kaede's monologue (?).
This... this is why Nishida said in that interview 'we never did this'?
Fucking hillarious. Will be disapointed if it turns out to be false.
What's up with the raccoon some people are tweeting about?
And that "pickles" word the writer mentioned? Apparently it's the only food Barnaby honestly dislikes. The hotdog picture spoiler is Kotetsu pestering him about it.
The secretary was the real bad guy.
He's also the one Barnaby says the line, "you're the one I want to save" to.
Yeah, because he's pretty much "Jesus Christ, you need to be protected from yourself. Now pack up your angst and deal with it."
Like Barnaby has the right to say that to, uh, anyone! Mu-mu-muh parents are DEEEAD.
First, Barnaby has never tried to unleash an apocalypse on the city because of his parents. Second, he never actually said that. He never brings them up as an excuse of anything, and the one time he shauts "He killed my parents!" in a very specific situation where Kotetsu demands to know why's he flipping out. I feel like the whole MY PARENT'S ARE DEEEAD thing is such an overblown myth that you'd have to rewatch the series to see by just how much.
>Like Barnaby has the right to say that to, uh, anyone! Mu-mu-muh parents are DEEEAD
Are we even watching the same show anon?
Wasn't the premise of his character to be incredibly stoic, focused and not letting anyone help him util Kotetsu broke his walls?
And even being very emotionally crippled/mind raped he was highly functional and self suficient. The times he felt overwhelmed he actually isolated himself instead to cling to Kotetsu.
He had the mindrape excuse and more importantly, he always treated it as his own personal problem. He never wanted to get anyone else involved and he wasn't a danger to his surroundings. So yeah, he does have the right to tell him off.
Anyway, in this case he basically acts like a policeman. It's his duty to neutralize the guy and so he does.
Yeah, so Barnaby never tried to murder people. He was still a huge douche for 90% of the series because of his own personal issues that he took out on Kotetsu, so, yes, it is hilarious to have him telling someone to get over themselves when he was a self-centered prick for twenty years.
This is the most important part anons what does it mean?
Nah man, you're talking out of your ass. There's not a single situation in which this happens. Kotetsu's involved because he involved himself. If by being self centered you mean being focused on single utilitarian goal then yeah, I guess he is. But it's not like Kotetsu himself wasn't a shelled up asshole nose deep in his Tomoe angst when the series has started.
That really has more to deal with Maverick resurfacing his nightmares so he has a hero with a purpose for the media to clamor for. Barnaby at heart is very utilitarian, he would have gotten over it pretty quickly and moved on to robotics.
Nobody denies he was a jerk for the first episodes of the series, but soon after he got much more thoughtful and honest. The times he got mad at Kotetsu he had a legit reason, like being lied or just not having back the trust he was giving as a partner. Please stop victimizing Kotetsu.
And after all his development and what he learned, is precisely him who has to talk him out, because he understands.
Not everything can be put on Mavericks account. He picked up on Barnaby's need for revenge and guided it to his interest, but the novel states it was a mutual relationship of using and being used to the other's advantage.
>it was a mutual relationship of using and being used to the other's advantage.
That's really... dark. And very interesting too.
I just want everyone to be happy.
this one I wished was a fake
And because they both couldn't into emotional closeness and normal humanity, they were on rather decent terms. I remember one guidebook in 2011 describing them as fundamentally similar: utilitarian, impersonal, and with a strong sense of duty.
People seem to like her in Rising. I've seen some calling her more mature than Blue Rose now.
Then rejoice. After this movie the cast seems as happy as their personalities allow them to be.
kiss my glorious golden ass
>I've seen some calling her more mature than Blue Rose now.
That's not difficult. Though people say BR has also improved in this movie. I guess the hero with the most surprising amount of focus is Nathan though? Maybe it's to make up for what they did in the first movie...
Speaking of Barnaby, his orphanage past is now confirmed for real.
Yeah, Fire Emblem was the fourth most important hero in the movie. People joke that the roles went:
>Barnaby: hax husbandowaifu of the MC
>Ryan: guest star
>Fire Emblem: admirable heroine
Not surprising. Barnaby a high tier waifu. No wonder Kotetsu was having insecurity issues.
So what does Kotetsu accomplish in this movie.
>Ubermensh being called this.
That's insulting to Barnaby And the fact that he saves the day.
He gets back his waifu.
He gives pointers on hotdogs.
Story irrelevant, but still a funny detail. In the first movie, Kotetsu had a picture of a black rabbit in his phone (Barnaby's number). In this movie, Barnaby's phone has a photo of smiling Kotetsu.
Ah, so he does switch to smartphone, like some early movie info said.
I really hope this one is true
That is pretty important I suppose.
Good times good times.
Are those spoilers about mecha vs mecha action true?
Spoiler thread post 743 talks about big mecha and later about crab and bunny mecha action
Preorder starts today.
Is anyone able to read this?
So that means no more AI YO between T&B?.
Only a few more months until those BD's.
Let's stay positive!! We've come this far for The Rising, we can stay strong and wait a few more months until the BD's. It'll be hard, but worth it.
Plenty of AI YO. The difference is that neither of them is a psycho and that they choose to stay together and enjoy life.
>Wild Tiger armor for MC
>Barnaby Brooks Jr. armor for femMC
Mein fucking sides.
>We will never get God Eater 2 localized
>Even if they get God Eater 2 localized, they won't buy the licenses to bring the T&B characters over
First reviews coming in. Verdict:
- very interesting and entertaining
- surprisingly realistic and detailed setting and human interactions
- absolutely gorgeous (different approach, but looks on par with Shinkai's Garden of Words)
- definitely worth seeing
I just remembered that I still haven't watched the first movie. I really should get on it now.
Seems to be true. An extremely high-speed and great looking battle, though it apparently also felt different from what we're used to in T&B.
Nakamura's (Ryan's VA) comment from the live viewing:
"He was Cupid. At the end of the movie he came after them because he knew he had to tell them that they have to be together."
A character with communication skills says shit and helps avoid more drama? In my Chinese cartoons?
How am I not supposed to be a shipperfag when they keep saying stuff like this.
I'm glad Ryan turns out to be an okay guy.
Yeah, it's his old suit. It literally looks like an old-time royal garb, matching his 'Wandering Gravity Prince' nickname.
I'm glad things didn't turn as grim and suffering as the previews etc foreshadowed. Also it's great they gave Nathan more focus, always wanted to see how he operates his business and other things. I guess I can accept no S2 if the ending is conclusive enough.
But fuck, I'll miss ORION WO NAZORU ;_;
About Kaede, this time she doesn't pull any deus ex machinas with her power and doesn't need to be rescued, so it's all good.
Actual deeds aside, his overall attitude is apparently changing. In the show he used to yell, bluster and hated doing what he's told. Here, he actually pays attention, listens to Barnaby's advice and instructions (don't do this, don't activate just yet, use wires instead etc.).
Not a dramatic change, but a very telling one.
It's not shipperfaggotry when it's the truth, I guess.
It's still fairly grim (the impressions agree that the movie feels more serious and down to earth than the show), but it's executed so sensibly that it just works.
Any Lunatic related info?
Let's just say the guy's lack of training and stuff really shows. Being a part-time antihero is suffering.
Just like in the show, he pulls back the moment shit starts really hitting the fan.
From one mad Yahoo review:
>Was it really necessary to make Bunny and Ryan flirt so blatantly right in front of Kotetsu? Was it supposed to be a weird kind of fanservice or something?
Holy shit, dat NTR butthurt.
Jesus it is true, the butthurt tastes great.
People are totally loving the movie. The only 'negative' critic I've seen is about Ryan only created to put Kotetsu and Barnaby back together before disappearing. In other words, everyone liked him and wish they could see more about him.
Guess we are going to know how good the movie did around wednesday?
As one guy joked:
>Lunatic in the show: "Shoulder hurts; sitting it out."
Certainly. But I'm already seeing people speaking about going to watch it one more time, like the previous movie. And Pixiv is starting to react. All this really looks good.
They say the action scenes and animation in general are so good that they understand why it took so much time. I can't wait.
Is Ryan seriously the only reason T&B are partners again? Or was there some effort or progress done on their own?
A lot of progress. Short explanation:
The problem wasn't in T&B; the problem was in Kotetsu alone. He's always had serious insecurity issues, while Barnaby is now almost perfect in every single aspect (the movie shows the huge disparity between him and everybody else, and some things that he does seemingly as an afterthought are borderline impossible for Kotetsu). Cue self-loathing, feelings of worthlessness ("he's so much more, but because of me..") and attempts to draw away. Barnaby knows about his issues, but Kotetsu is so caught up in his own fixed ideas that he can't listen to reason. Barnaby then opts for the hands-off approach and distances from him to let Kotetsu find his own way of dealing with his self-esteem (the overall theme of the movie is that everybody is different and ultimately, nobody can tell you how to be happy). Once Kotetsu reaches some realizations, Barnaby welcomes him back ("Is this really enough for you?" " I wouldn't have it any other way.")
Ryan's presence drives some points home, but he doesn't exist to "fix" anything.
So does Stern Bill suffer any of the major destruction that the trailer implied?
So, I guess the catalyze for Kotetsu's realization here is Lunatic or Kaede?? no??
That's some serious mary sue up to eleven.
One of the things Kotetsu has to face is his own dependence on Barnaby, and how he assumes things about him--often negative--that don't necessarily have a bearing in reality.
For example, one of the reasons Barnaby and Kotetsu fall out is that Barnaby mentions that the pay is low in the 2nd League. This causes Kotetsu to get on his high horse about how saving people is what's REALLY important, without knowing that Barnaby has been using a large chunk of his paycheck at an orphanage for the kids there.
He could have just asked, but like all relationships in a crisis, communication broke down under assumptions and hurt feelings.
Barnaby isn't really a Mary Sue. He's too prickly for that. Kotetsu gets along much better with their coworkers in the 2nd League, for example. He's just excellent at his job, which we already knew from the TV show.
It's hilarious they kept it a secret so long and spoiled the SHF immediately after the staff showing was over. Also why is the design so much cleaner than Bunny's. Maybe the roundness and streamlining of a suit just works better with fewer lines & details.
Does Barnaby also get some character developement?
He gets development in that we find out that he's truly matured and moved on from what happened with his parents. He now goes out of his way to help other people, instead of wallowing in thoughts on vengeance and anger. That's why he tells the villain he wants to save him.
Prickly, dry and kind of removed from the rest of humanity. In a way, he's like a nicer Griffith; he's liked for what he does and not for what he is.
He starts with his character arc already complete and a lifetime of experience behind him. The movie shows the results of his previous development.
Was it the orphanage he himself lived in by any chance?
Who is that dashing blonde man that looks like a splice between Dio Brando and Gilgamesh?
>He's just excellent at his job, which we already knew from the TV show.
He's also excellent at self-reflection and self-improvement, which means he really learns every lesson life teaches him. It's probably his most distinctive personality trait.
Read the thead, m8.
I'm not sure. There might be more than one he's assisting.
The Nips don't think so. He isn't doing it because of any personal connections.
Anyone up for marathoning the series near the BD release date? I forgot some stuff to be honest.
Guess the movie didn't go 3.0 , huh. Based Sunrise.
Yeah. Will rewatch the first movie too, since it has some foreshadowing for the second.
Sunrise based as fuck. Now announce a new season of Gintama already
If you want that buy the movie DBs
Regardless, he still looks like a all around walking perfection now also a friend to all children. Feels more like high end commodity not a character. From what I read the movie doesn't really delve into his issues because there are no issues. Where can you progress from that before it gets stale?
But Kotetsu has planty of issues, they even made a movie about it.
He's calling you Kotetsu for having a ridiculously idealized image of Barnaby, including the idea that he has no issues just because he got past his main ones in the series.
Not really a friend, more like a poorer Bill Gates-type of donor.
What about >>101685670 ?
Again, Barnaby is good at his job. He's still a human being that hates pickles, bickers with his partner about said pickles, isn't always there to catch Kotetsu when he falls, and finds being called "junior" annoying. You also have to keep in mind that part of the problem was in him not telling Kotetsu about his orphanage work in the first place.
Agreed. The thing about Barnaby, though, is that he's well equipped do deal with any issues that may yet arise: he's got the ability to recognize problems and the will to solve them.
Imagine how short our Chinese cartoons would be if more characters opted for the ‘It CAN be helped' approach.
Well, yes. It's just funny that people in this very thread are talking about how Barnaby is perfect, because that's the exact problem Kotetsu had in this movie--the assumption that Barnaby was so superior that he didn't need him as a partner. That's why the turning point is Kotetsu realizing he said shitty things to Barnaby because of his own assumptions instead of giving him the benefit of the doubt. He realizes that he probably hurt Barnaby's feelings, it's just that Barnaby acted like a mature adult about it.
Barnaby is amazing because he worked hard to improve himself and become a better person--and succeeded. He's not amazing because he doesn't "need" anyone (read: Kotetsu) or he's good at catching criminals.
You have characters like Akira Takizawa which prove that it's possible to have good anime with resolute characters.
Its is a bit of a let down that the whole conflict went about a, yet again, lolmisunderstanding of the purest sort. How was Kotetsu's power issue resolved again? He got promoted back into the first league because Agnes now thinks he's awesome, but does that solve the very real issue, does he keep up?
But, that's the point. At this point in time, Barnaby is probably the best hero in Sternbild. How do any of the heroes "keep up"? Well, as the movie showed, instead of insisting that they're where they want to be (such as, oh say, the 2nd League...Kotetsu) and getting upset and hurt at the implication otherwise, they work on continually improving themselves and the powers they do have.
I mean, if Origami and Bison can hack it in the 1st League, there's really nothing stopping Kotetsu, provided he works together with his partner and keeps on working to be better and better.
So the core of the movie wasn't really about sidestepping the issue of Kotetsu keeping up, it was about forcing Kotetsu to face the idea of "keeping up" head on. Instead of running away when the going got tough, blaming his partner, and lying to himself.
We did get 1 screening of The Beginning.
The previews really made it look like the "Kotetsu is getting old" theme will play a major role. The movie twists it around so it does feel like they skipped over a major issue. Nevertheless it's great to know that it deals with their miscommunication. I wonder how long it will last and if Kotetsu really is cured from his insecurity for good.
How can Kotetsu keep up? Isn't the problem that he's gradually losing his powers with the time he can use them growing shorter, and pretty soon he won't have any?
Wasn't a big point of the series that he learned to use what he did have to help who he could, hence the 2nd league, and that even when at his weakest he found the resolution to keep on fighting?
Do they just ignore all the development and try to act like he should learn to overcome the inevitable fact soon he'll just be a civvy?
Again, getting old? Kotetsu is around the same age as Bison and Fire Emblem, and they're still just fine. It's not that Kotetsu is objectively too old, he's just afraid of failure.
He's not 'getting old' - though he probably fears it a little - he's genuinely losing his powers completely at a fairly fast pace. His insecurity is primarily that pretty soon he won't be able to be a hero at all, and even still he's getting weaker and weaker as he draws closer to that point.
is this on Animax?
We've got a livestream going.
If on another channel this could be arranged.
Fire Emblem is a bit younger and has a high-destructive power unrelated with his physical abilities while Bison is an endearing failure.
There's nothing that makes it seem like his powers are still fading. The possibility is there, but he's obviously been at one minute for a while, so until--IF--they do, he might as well give it all he's got instead of trying to convince himself he's happy when he's not.
[Waiting for the dub]
Must... Stay strong... For mother
Still looks like sunrise if fishing for sympathy real hard.
