Australia has the worse anime community.

This is why power level hiding in this country is so damn important, in one of my class those normalfags who that reads Bleach and Streams Naruto in the Uni Library.

It's not great mate, steer clear if I were you.

That's definitely not true. There must be others because there are people on my facebook that still talk about Naruto like it's the greatest thing ever. If they'd ever been on /a/ they would know it's unacceptable to do such things.

>>101714462
I live in Australia and everyone I know who watch anime all browse /a/.

Nope, majority of people who watch anime here in Sydney are casuals who love kuroshitsu and SnK.

I can admit I suppress my power level because there's so many cringe tier people around.

I hate the anime fanbase so much, the only decent person I saw there was with his apparent girlfriend and recommending she grab Yotsuba, then they looked down the aisle and spot SnK, start talking about how bad it is and people are actually paying for that shit

Respect to those two

The Sydney Anime scene doesn't do he massive mega-piratin' Anime sharing LA parties like they used to.

Enjoy yourselves, /a/usfags. Sadly I'm 6 hours away from a city so it's impossible for me to attend.

>>101714648
Last time I went there a couple years ago there was a girl about 14-15 there going full fujo-mode on her friend with her. She was talking loud enough from the manga section I could hear her from the counter area going on about Kuroshitsuji and her favourite yaoi couples with who would be bottom and top in the relationship.

Suddenly I remembered it was the same girl I'd seen on stage at SMASH the day before wearing a fetish-maid outfit from the back of Bras n' Things. She said her friend's sister had "made" it in the interview before going on to do her skit. Somehow they played the audio too long though, she got embarrassed and ran off stage in tears. Felt sorry for her at the time, but after how I saw her in Kino I changed my mind.
>>
>>101714648
>google Kinokuniya

Holy shit. I had no idea such a place existed.

I bet it's staffed by neckbeards and permanently smells of sweat. I'm right, aren't I?
>>
I live in Bundaberg and will never watch the movie in a theater. Central Queensland looser race.
>>
>>101715515
No, not really since it's just a huge bookstore with both general and specialist areas. It's gotten a bit better compared to where the manga section used to be in a small aisle next to a window. People would camp in there and make it difficult to walk through.
>>
>>101715515
No. It's a normal bookstore. It just happens to have some Jap stuff.

I'll just wait until the Astor shows it in a double feature with something a lot better.

Are you forgetting that NZ isn't part of Australia? They're so bad here, my powerlevel must stay permanently hidden.

I actually went to the anime club at uni - the president is chill as fuck, and played Tatami Galaxy and a few others for us to vote on what to watch for the year. Eveyone bitched that TG was the most boring shit they'd ever seen, and demanded the latest Naruto episode was streamed each week in its place.

Half of them came in some form of cosplay to the meeting, and asked for some time for skits to show everyone.

My one friend who claims she is a 'massive otaku' refuses to watch anything but highschool romance, english dubbed obviously. She says it can't be good if it hasn't been dubbed by proper VAs not the nip amateurs.

It was 41 degrees on last Sunday when I saw it. Nova either had no air con or their air con was just shit.

Canberra. You know, the capitol of Australia in name and function alone.
Why do Americans always think Sydney is the capitol?
Is it because of Pacific Rim?

Guess these indie cinemas realised how much wonga they made from playing depressing magical girls to cause this re-screening.

God dammit, I wish Luna would play The Raid 2 already

>>101716904
It wasn't too bad today. The temp in the theater was comfortable enough. Definitely cooler in there than my apartment.
>>
>>101716931
More like every film ever that features Australia.

The opera house is the only landmark people outside of AUS know of
>>
>>101717040
I know some Americans, their lack of cultural and geographic knowledge is hilariously lacking.
>>
>>101716931
The Matrix came first.
Americans enjoy the hustlebustle of big cities and Canberra is a fairly lacking place in that respect.

So, people freshly out of the theatre. What did you think of Rebellion?

>>101717040
>forgetting Uluru
I did some unpaid work at one of the hotels there a few years ago and I swear, the amount of obese Americans trying to climb it was phenomenal.
>>
>>101717391
I don't even know. Gonna give it some time to stew. There's going to be a sequel right? Kind of anti-climatic otherwise.

Also, I'm pretty slow, what was the significance of the after credit scene?
>>
>>101717655
>climbing Uluru.

Typical Americans.
>>
>>101717655
Uluru is kind of uninteresting to look at though, particularly in movies. Imagine:

>Kaiju rampage throughout Alice Spring! Destroys some rock.
Who gives a flying fuck

>>101717735
I took me about four days of thinking and discussing on /a/ to come up with my own satisfying interpretation. I was just interested in people's first impression.

But if you really want to know what I think, including the meaning of the last scene:
>>101712455
>>
>>101717760
Despite what they say, the Aborigines there don't actually give that much of a fuck. But It's hilarious to watch the fatties climb up half way, only to realize a gentle slope is too much for them to handle.
>>
Is Rog going to be there?
>>
>>101717772
some dramatic confrontation on top of uluru would be fun.

I was hoping Madoka would get more character development, rather than persist in the "good girl" role she's been in since day 1. I thought the fight scenes were really nice and the plot twists were well executed, though I'm still struggling to figure out how the world works after Homura's transformation.

Well god knows there's fuck all else to do at hanging rock.

I thought it was cool that she got screen time. In series it seemed that her ending was the true bad ending. ie out of magical girl heaven because she was guilt tripping about being a magical girl. Remember Madoka is meant to be the saviour of ALL magical girls

Much better than I was expecting. Before the movie I was trying to think of who would be the worst person in the audience, but even the cosplayers turned out to be fine. Most annoying thing was some guy in the back row calling it the worst movie he ever saw and saying that it could be fit into a 24 minute episode to his girlfriend, who seemed a bit annoyed by it.
>>
>>101722101
I was sitting right next to the (non-mami) cosplayers, they turned out to be aquantainces.

While I think it was just to make room for other people, me and a few others did find it funny when the Kyouko cosplayer got up from her seat and moved next to the Sayaka cosplayer's one.

I had brown hair and was just in white shirt and red shorts, but I do a lot of power-level hiding so I don't think I would have stood out that much. I would have seen you but I was in the second last row so had a pretty good view of pretty much everyone..
>>
>>101719420
I know right? The Japanese interpretation of "god" is pretty weak anyway, so quincan would definitely count before even getting to their dreamtime gods.

The Bunyip is even more epic than their River masters.

>>101714108
This is why people from /a/ want to try and meet up. Other people from /a/ are the only ones we can put any faith in not being completely autistic weeaboo faggots. Or at least not the loud kind.

>>101723278
Those are the Madokafags that actually will go to meet ups.

>>101723376
The other ones are the waifu and gaiafags who keep making those HOMUHOMU and Mumishake threads with bad fanfics and yurifanart.

Those guys are too autistic for meet-ups but still cancer.

I was at the Sydney screening earlier today, and the people there were fucking sticks or something. Lots of asians with pimples and glasses, too.
>>
>>101723322
The madoka dub isn't that bad. I think there's two dubs though, but the one shown on ABC was pretty good. Kyubey sounded what I'd expect him too.

Homura was the only girl that sounded off, but to be honest, girls with her personality in anime or even in western shows always sound off when I know what they saying.
