Are you hype /a/ ?
Who 50K here?
I don't see the appeal of this series
It depends. I've long since learned not to be hyped over things. I'm cautiously optimistic though.
If they don't use the songs, I will be mad. Use them for OPs, EDs, Insert Songs, the instrumentals as the BGM, I don't care. Just get them in there.
Why should I be hyped?
if they dont use
i will be mad
SHAFTS old and busted here's the new hotness that's kicking their ass lately.
Will it be talking heads: the animation? Or is there action?
They should AT LEAST have this song in there. It's the song that made the Kagerou Project big.
That's not Silver Link
The anime designs are already way better than the LN and MV designs.
They finally had successful show last year.
What are you talking about? SnK was the only series that outsold Monogatari last year.
Yes, I am.
Jojo 3 will destroy this. But some other surprise hit in spring will out sale both.
One success doesn't make them higher than the successes of Shaft like Gatari and Madoka. Hozuki no Reitetsu ain't selling gangbusters.
It only averages about 53k now aswell hardly as impressive as it looked at first.
Doesn't matter, the fact they can take a niche manga like hozuki and make it out pace niskeoi is quite a feat. Both of WIT's first 2 shows are looking to be hits.
I know, but it was the only studio that outsold SHAFT last year while Silver Link's best seller is around 10K.
Im hype as fuck. Found the series through Jubyphonic a while ago, and I've been hype since.
I think this will be a huge let down. In terms of it being relevant and successful.
>trying this hard
Not having seen SnK I thought it was IG who made it.
Anyways, WIT is making HnR. It's kinda shit. SHAFT even makes Nisekoi looks good.
what's he trying to do?
I really think you are underestimating just how popular this franchise is. It has already sold millions of LN and the songs get millions of views on nico, the CDs and BDs for the music top oricon charts and it has already had multiple live events. If it sells anything less than 20k i'll consider it a flop.
Nisekoi is pretty successful. 100% manga boost already, best selling OP single of the season.
It does what the most other WSJ shows don't do.
are these guys all based off of vocaloids or something
Well it is I.G in a way. They're putting cash in I.G's pocket
Ene doesn't have feet.
I'll be really disappointed if IA doesn't sing in this
It was a pretty terrible one then.
Nisekoi looked better to start with. After 5 episodes though HnR seems to be more consistent and polished
Probably. NotMiku looks cute, and I look forward to NotKagari
actually, to be honest, I dropped it at the 1st episode. Had too mane shows picked up and I felt I was just losing my time, so I won't comment on it.
The anime designs don't look like Vocaloid characters.
No, please don't. Black Rock Shooter's OP was bad enough. Maybe as background music during important scenes but without vocals. I really like Vocaloid but they should have the VA's sing the songs.
Sure, you know your shit (not).
Leave them something to complain about, it's relatively harmless anyway.
Thats because they aren't vocaloid characters they are just based off of some songs that use vocaloids and IA.
Really if jin does the op and ed you can at least guarantee it has the best selling CDs of the season.
Tomorrow is likely going to be Konoha's reveal
Then we may actually get new information regarding who is voicing the rest of the cast
I want to see them tackle an original project, then we will see how legit they are
what anime/manga/ln is this and why should i be hyped around it?
Hōzuki no Reitetsu is such a boring adaptation.
You really need to be desperate to use it in some studio war nonsense.
Kagerou daze hype is because huge fanbase and perhaps the potential for SHAFT style music videos.
Yeah tomorrow should be Konoha's character PV. Next week will likely be Shintarou or maybe Kano or Kido.
It's relevant because like>>101693766
said. It's such a low selling/unpopular show yet for the 2nd time in a row WIT is surpassing expectations.
The manga sells 2x the amount of Nisekoi.
>trying this hard
Well, it's still to early to see how good they are and how relevant they will actually be.
Right now they just come across as a team that can market very well.
>implying sales = quality
the samefagging is cute though.
>The manga sells 2x the amount of Nisekoi.
shaft samefags are annoying as fuck.
>sales don't matter suddenly
uhhh that Nisekoi vol has been on the list for 6 weeks and Hozuki's Vol 1 is the highest seller of all the series vol's and it's only sold 400k in 67 weeks on the list.
So are you fucking stupid or what?
Must be tremendously fucking stupid.
Is this the next Black Rock Shooter?
>So are you fucking stupid or what?
not so stupid as you. None of the Nisekoi volumes is even close to 400k.
Not him but from vol to vol nisekoi sales better. Most of the time HnR only ranks for a week or 2.
So there is a troll who claims that Hozuki no Reitesu wasn't the more successful manga series?
>best selling OP single of the season.
Nisekoi(manga) sales are better. It's more popular. Now after HnR(anime)ends that might change.
I gave up on SHAFT years ago when they started trying to adopt this forced 'off the wall' style.
But actually, I think they're matched with the aesthetics of Vocaloid perfectly.
I'm not hype hype, but I'll be happy to see this when it comes around.
learn to read
>all this backpedaling
Seriously /a/, this forced love for shaft needs to stop.
Before the season started everyone was so sure Nisekoi would sale really good or might even be the best seller. Now that a show no one gave a chance to like Hozuki comes out of no where and out paces it the saying "well it should be expected since 1 vol of Hozuki sold better"
Shaft is med to low tier studio getting outdone by a subsidiary.. You guys would do best to stop overrating them.
Except that's completely subjective while sales aren't. If A outsells B it means A was more succesful.
>troll wants to shitpost about sales of anime which aren't even on sale
Remember when trolls had some dignity?
I just like WIT because they aren't pandering faggots like
>Muh comfort zone school setting
>lets glorify the female body
>the more cliches the better.
I remember when faggots like yourself said SnK couldn't break 5k.
Especially, fucking WIT Studio one of the the most faceless studio in Japan.
No one cares.
>f-fuck i dont know what to say, i know ill call him a troll that will show him
Seriously, 2014 is going to a good year. We got this, Stardust Crusaders, FSN Remake, and Sword Art Online Season 2
>WIT Studio one of the the most faceless studio in Japan.
The fastest rising studio you mean. How long did it take shaft to be relevant? About 9 years.
I am so disappointed that Jin didn't write any shitty jokes for this scene.
I am betting next week will be Momo, since she's Saint Valentine.
Yeah, not many people know WIT did SnK. I.G got all the publicity for it.
Yes specially delicious Ene.
Out of all the things you choose SAO S2..
Cuz Gun Gale Online was actually good
You're one to talk about tastes.
Only Mekaku and Fate are the only interesting anime based on a big franchise.
Another Aniplex production, huh? I'm sure all the profits will make Kizumonogatari real.
So, what's going to achieve the biggest sales this year?
Jojo 3, Mekaku City Actors or KanColle?
I think KanColle will easily go 100k+
This might sell 30k+ and Jojo would go around there too.
If Gundam origins happens the the competition is over. Until then it's up in the air.
What's the Gundam thing being sold right now? I know it's doing quite well.
KanColle will not go 100k no matter how popular it is, that's unreal territory.
Considering KagePro's popularity, if the anime is good it should by far be the best seller of the year.
I am really hoping this anime will be good.
It has everything to go right.
About KanColle, I'm not sure how big it's going to be actually. Some say it's as big as touhou and the last Comiket proved it.
If it really is this big I wouldn't be surprised if at least one BD volume sold over 100k+, I mean, SnK got 80+ on the first volume and it was aired just last year.
Is Shintarou being born on Walpurgisnacht some kind of roundabout reference to Madoka? Is Momo being born on Valentine's Day part of symbolism, or is it just random? What could Jin have possibly been thinking when he made Kenjirou's birthday September 11th?
>Madoka invented Walpurgisnacht
> i'm stupid as fuck and assuming this because the kiddy gundams haven't sold well in the past few years.
How's ignoring the actual Gundam shows the fans love like Unicorn and 00 treating you? If Origins happens it would be the first Gundam TV show since 00 fans would want to watch and own.
Bandai sells the Gundam shows for anime dumping prices.
Gundam SEED (50 episodes) was sold in just 13 volumes.
Good. I.G does the same to their shows. Anime is overpriced.
Why else would Jin put that in there?
Who's ready to see best girl die in High definition?
>will not appear in the anime
Why would we see her die? She pretty much dies off panel / out of sight no matter what, I'm not sure the anime will have an Ayano flashback / Ayano's Happiness Theory episode. I hope it does because she's my favorite character and I love that song for what it revealed but I don't think the anime will include that.
The only way that could happen is if they set it up for two seasons, and skip Ene's flashback in the first season and also skip all of Shintarou's dreams.
She'll probably get heavily referenced like she does in the LNs. She still has to meet Shintaro to give him his shitty eye power as well.
>shitty eye power
But we still don't even know what it does.
can't wait for Momo as MC of the anime.
It'll probably be shitty, like Hibiya's. Actually, what the fuck does Hibiya's eye power do? I read the LNs and that certainly didn't seem like it was described in his bio.
That would be pretty interesting.
It has the power to perceive objects and details that are far away from an aerial view.
So just like the Heat daze song
When used on an object, he can see its owner.
When used on a person, he can see places and items related to that person.
Momo was actually jealous of his power, but that's because she's dumb and doesn't realize that captivate is the second best ability after awaken.
It let's him see things from further away and different angles which should be impossible so he can like see over walls and around corners and shit. Perfect power for a stalker.
Well, she is the center of the character section of the official anime website.
Is this going to be as bad of a drama festival as I believe it will?
There is almost no drama.
Depends. It's actually a pretty lighthearted series. There is some drama but most of the heavier bits are in the past or in route xx. Personal tragedies or traumatic experiences are kind of integral to the characters though.
Oh, I see. The translations for the third novel are a bit bad, so I really couldn't understand that part. Thanks anon.
Seriously? I'm going to give it a try then, at least for the SHAFT neck-breaking antics and the good voice cast.
No drama, just a lot of sad kids dying everywhere.
Why is Hiyori such a little bitch that the world is better off without?
Seriously Hibiya accept the big breasted nee-san that is interested in you and forget her.
It's pretty lighthearted until Kuroha or Ayano show up.
[spoiler i wanna see her death in HD][/spoiler:lit]
He's probably an M with an Ojou-sama fetish
Maybe her parents are really overbearing since they're old and their only other child ran way before Hiyori was born.
It will go mekaku > jojo > kancole
>big as 2hu
This.is what introduces risk. If it doesn't fit the doujin community head canon it flops.
What's the name?
Just read the thread a bit anon
Mekaku City Actors
People like the VN and manga?
LN not VN
Make them use Soraru to sing the songs
>More high school anime
SHAFT + Aniplex = Brace for maximum sutema
Can we just not. I don't like the human covers for the kagerou songs.
But then, I'm sort of a massive vanillafag who can't listen to touhou remixes and only likes originals.
Only a couple flashbacks take place in high school.
>How long did it take shaft to be relevant? About 9 years.
Where did you pull this stupid figure from?
new CM soon!
was this story written by a middle schooler?
Who has the best eye power? I've read up on the bio's, but I still don't know what most of them are supposed to do.
The awakening eyes give you incredible speed and strength, and make you sexier. But it erases your memories.
The captivating eyes do a couple things. The most apparent thing is that they make the holder and things, like art, relating to them more attractive. Next, they can force people to look at the holder or something close to the holder. And lastly, they let you tell where other people are focusing their attention(this ability has no range limit).
One of these is probably the best. The meeting eyes and favoring eyes might be better when their full potentials are revealed.
>But it erases your memories.
That's pretty shitty if you ask me. The captivating ability doesn't really seem all that great either. Who the fuck wants to attract neckbeards 24/7?
Awaken might also be able to turn you into a little girl.
Captivate would make it so your (shit)posts on 4chan always get replies.
Its not just SHAFT and Aniplex though, its SHAFT, Aniplex and the artist behind the songs and writer of the script is signed to Sony Music label.
mary is my waifu
That's probably why Aniplex are involved. Even more sutema then.
