When will this show get serious?
Never, I hope.
If this show gets serious then it's going to be shitty. Go fuck yourself, OP. Take you and your shit taste over to some tryhard drama series.
Will the most likeable girl win?
Fuck the tsunloli.
>Fuck the tsunloli.
Oh I'd love to fuck her, but she's too cute.
She looks better that way
Why would you want a show that's fun so far to get serious?
Which side would you join, Zvezda or White Light?
Bear in mind that WL would probably treat you better.
WL since they would let me smoke
Zvezda: Fun, loli shares her food and the world with you, members are more like a family, if you screw up you get "punished" by the girls stepping on your face and there's always second chance, personal costumes.
WL: No fun, unknown leader, it's more like a corporation, you screw up you get humiliated or get fired, you are not allowed to even know other members, no loli, uniforms.
Choice is obvious, Zvezda all the way,
Why in the fuck would you want this show to be serious?
Do you hate fun?
It doesn't need to get serious.
Zvezda, I want to pervert over Plamya every second while she ignores me because she is trying to pervert over Kate.
The vicious circle.
I watch this show for the plot.
>Purple hair revealed to be ugly bitch
>Purple hair revealed to be best girl wearing an ugly mask
Picked back up
Best episode so far! Plus fanservice, finally
One has loli the other doesn't, there is now question.
May the udo be with you
That's right, fuck Zvezda.
Enjoy your domestic violence.
Snake, i've developed a mask that blinks
They certainly make a much more interesting couple than any of the Zvezda girls.
What's your speculations /a/?
Do you think Zvezda will actually be successful in conquering the world?
Is White Light really a "good" organization or are they corrupted?
Do you think Renge will ever accept Zvezda's light?
I Have The Power!
Zvezda has Palmya, WL has nothing to offer.
Any request for gif, stitch, or transparent?
Zvezda, I prefer a leader who's in the field alongside her soldiers rather than a mere computer screen.
That, and she's a loli. +200 relationship modifier toward leader with loli trait.
Now you've reminded me of that MGS3 x Zvezda OP.
White Light is no fun allowed. Zvezda may treat me bad but at least they'd somewhat care.
>Any request for gif, stitch, or transparent?
The starting bit of the episode where Pepel uses the Panzerfausts as fucking swords, please.
White Egret vs Plamya and Pepel.
Asuta's father is White Light's commander and Miki is his cousin.
Since these are in the same scene, I'll make them together, is that fine?
Fine by me.
Zvezda. I believe in this little girl insticts
I think Zvezda will conquer parts of the world.
Get stopped by WL at some point.
Renge finds out WL is corrupt but she doesn't join Zvezda, she becomes a lone hero becoming even more of an obstacle for Zvezda.
Do you really enjoy getting beat up that much?
Definitely Zve- >>101785518
Welp, I had forgotten about that. I'd join White Light and I don't even smoke anymore.
I love me some lolis, but I dislike tyranny.
>Do you think Zvezda will actually be successful in conquering the world?
Did you miss the first part of episode 1?
If the reward is her furiously raping my brains out, getting beat up is a small price to pay.
Yasu stilll smokes, you just have to avoid non smoking areas in the base and avoid being a stubborn asshole in front of Kate and you'll be fine.
Did you miss the part where he's getting a bucket of water poured over him any time he lights up, no matter the place?
Why would she do anything else than kill you?
Yet he still goes out to buy more cigarettes.
The only rape you're getting is with her sword.
Zvezda, fuck smokers.
>When will this show get serious?
It's been dead serious all throughout, but as usual, OP is a faggot who only shitposts without even paying attention.
Fucn fact: scorched earth policy was real thing used when USSR was being invaded by Nazis.
>Having a bit of historical knowledge
No, fuck you.
Because it isn't fun so far.
Now that MC has her sword will he finally be useful in fights?
No, it was a Star Wars reference.
As useful as Odin
I FUCKING TOLD YOU
I FUCKING TOLD YOU ALL RENGE-CHAN WASN'T WHITE ROBIN
I TOLD YOU ALL AND YOU JUST MADE FUN OF ME
What the fuck? It was obvious as shit from the start. What are you even...
If you don't mind, how about when Asuta presses the button on the All Purpose Taro Tentacle monster and it explodes into the KuruKurus?
Probably when we'll get loli fanservice.
always "next week"
>Implying world conquest is a joking matter.
Of course, please give me a moment, I'm struggling with trying to fit the entire first battle into gif form.
Spats or leotard, which is more erotic?
conquering the world in Sekai Seifuku seems like a laughing matter considering how incompetent everyone is.
My dick is conquered.
Why does Pepel use a fucking Panzerfaust as a beating stick?
Been wondering the same but I guess they are just sticks made to look like rpg's.
The mines he's wearing won't be real either.
>/a/'s face when he's a chuuni
Because he is a man.
In the last days of WWII when many germans were only armed with nothing but Panzerfausts the officers and high command joked that after firing, the tubes can be used as clubs. Pepel took that seriously because he's not afraid of anything.
Cause he's supposed to be the big strong badass?
All of them are, just look at them.
Odin is a normalfag.
>Tentacles and fanservice
>Venera trying gymnastics
That boner was completely justified.
Can you even imagine how wet she must be right in that moment.
its psychological warfare
'if I hit you, both of us will die, can you guess which one ready to die?'
More like "I WILL FUCKING WHACK YOU WITH EXPLOSIONS"
I am so sorry it took this long for a normal gif, my internet died.
Wait. Did Asuta return the sword to her?
And I apologize to you both aswell, this take longer than it should have, I have to seperate them into three gifs so they won't be squeezed up dot that no one can recognized.
He walk out of the battle with it, I think.
TOP FUKKEN LEL
What is a double mask?
Is this show fun?
mediocre with no plot at all
Thank you STALKER, you are a gentleman, a scholar and more based than based god. Truly a tripFRIEND.
Fun - yes.
Meaningful - no.
not at all
it's not the fun I was expected from the first episode, but it hasn't gone bad enough that I'd drop it.
ep1 was such a fucking bait and even that episode was mediocre, nothing happened since then
How much are preorders dropping ?
Renge is so adorably incompetent. Her and Dva's antics make me giggle like a little girl.
Since gifs are about, has anyone made the bit from the OP where all the characters go past in that continuous action shot? Roboko doing the Astro Boy pose, etc
I like the wobbly face their giant machines of destruction have.
Well, they are made of little cute blobs.
Long time no see. I wonder if you still remember me, not that I did talk to you much. It's good to see you're still the same Stalker that I admired. .gif request of White Robin looking up and smiling at around about 11:05 where she says "kou yuu no hen?" Thanks.
Nice to see you again, haven't talk to you in a while after the Henneko thread died out, is this the scene you want?
Yeah, it sure is. Thanks a bunch.
I look forward to seeing you more in the upcoming Zvezda threads, or if not, sometime in the future.
Man, she's so cute.
And those fluffy eyebrows!
Is this the vividred of 2014?
Every time Natasha is on screen I try to read the subs, but my eyes are just drawn to the fact that she's wearing a lab coat over underwear and just that. And then I try to follow subs again but I end up staring again, and it's just so frustrating.
How do you guys think it's going to end?
I'd like to think that this is a lot better than Vividred.
We've already seen that they succeeded in conquering the world, but I can't be sure whether they'll really show how that progressed, it might've been just a gag prologue.
I kind of expect generic hijinks every episode until the end, but they'll probably add some kind of "plot", given the progresses with Vaito Raito.
Dumping sexy Yasu.
You know you want him.
Fuck you, zvizda, White Egret is my hero from now on.
literally the best character in this series
Anything is better than Vividbutt.
>scale figure of Venera
We're going to lack enough hot glue.
What does this have to do with the show?
It's not easy being serious when your cast consists of various degrees of underaged freaks in silly costumes
I'm glad you asked anon; I was hoping someone would, after all.
Fun fact: before Stalin took over the Communist party, to prove his worth, Stalin devised a plan to subjugate Ukraine by cutting off all food routes to Ukraine, essentially starving out around 150,000 people give or take. They were given sacks of grain in exchange of the corpses of the starved; the collected grain was used to supply the allied forces.
How is this relevant, you ask? Well Natasha is from Ukraine.
So it's slightly relevant, and in hindsight, that was not such a fun fact.
Why was Stalin such a fucking psychopath? I can't into history much yet but it seems like Lenin was a really cool guy who didn't afraid of anything and disapproved of Stalin before he died, it's really sad.
I sometimes feel a bit Stalinish because I occasionally can't into emotions and feel OK with situations where a group of people have to suffer for the good of a bigger group of people, but that shit is just fucking cruel. I hope you're not fucking with me and posting some USA anti-Stalin propaganda.
I was also born the same day as Stalin. Which is also the disappearance of Haruhi. Based birthday.
Needs more ass.
>yasu is the main combatant
>is utterly shit at fighting, even fucking worse than Asuta
Zvezda for family. Tsunabori is the cutest, but WL doesn't seem nearly as nice as Zvezda.
Of course he isn't fucking with you in any way possible. Everyone on /pol/ knows that Hitler did nothing wrong and that it was Stalin who killed all the people as well as executing another 100 billions personally.
Anon please upload a TIFF the next time.
Looks like his body count was just slightly above Hitler.
>imply /pol/ ignorance
Whoops, I confused my image uploads. Meant this one with second part of my post. Not that I can upload two at once.
I'm looking around and apparently it was fucking genocide. I have my facts off, but I really don't trust this shit; it did happen, but I won't confirm to you the death toll, because you can't trust shit in this day and age.
>Why was Stalin such a fucking psychopath?
He was son of a poor man, he lived in Georgia and he was crippled. He got kicked out of Church for supporting Marxism, he indirectly took control of the Communist party, that is, by becoming the speaker of the party and when Lenin was paralyzed, he took reins.
He was like the Aizen of history, just a lot more paranoid and silly at that.
my dick is on fire
White Light has Miki. She's underappreciated.
It's called Holodomor, if you want to read more about it
I don't trust the net.
>Early estimates of the death toll by scholars and government officials varied greatly; anywhere from 1.8 to 12 million ethnic Ukrainians were said to have perished as a result of the famine. Recent research has since narrowed the estimates to between 2.4 and 7.5 million.
It's not a genocide (which is acknowledged by every official organization) because genocide is killing one particular nation. Holodomor wasn't targeted at Ukraine in particular no matter how hard they try to cry now. A lot of Russian people starved and died too, so it wasn't just Ukraine.
Russia simply needed food in the main cities for rapid industrialization and they took that food from those peasants that had it the most.
Sure is Sekai Seifuku related, retards.
Criminally. Glad another anon's sticking up for her.
>Sure is Sekai Seifuku related, retards.
Natasha is from Ukraine, it's only natural that we speak of her background.
Nah, looks like you simply want a politics shit-flinging because you haven't even mentioned anything about her in your posts or tried to relate your "fun facts" to the show.
But I did.
And it started with >>101787380 because of >>101806005
I just couldn't help myself.
>looks like you simply want a politics shit-flinging
But why would I want that, why would anyone want that? It's not even politics, and it's pointless to "discuss" too.
Asuta is from Japan, let's talk about mass-killings of Chinese that they did. I'm sure it's relevant.
Natasha's backstory episode is so weird and ambiguous. Her descent into the underground resembles the Japanese folk tale of children being spirited away ("kamikakushi") by some angry god, and her parents as they abandon her don't look human any more.
If you want to talk about it, go ahead, no one's stopping you.
>Russia simply needed food in the main cities for rapid industrialization and they took that food from those peasants that had it the most.
Woops. Just an accident. We'll do better next time.
>looks like you simply want a politics shit-flinging
Which is bound to occur when someone tries to mitigate a great crime.
I want to fuck a KuruKuru
I'd rather be sticking it in her
Considering she was a child back then, and she can't remember much, the anecdote in itself is pretty warped, it gave me shivers.
Chief is moe.
Where's a Zvezda version of "Het" image when I need it.
It's like you never played Civilization and switched some cities to maximum production to complete important projects despite the food shortage it may bring.
>mitigate a great crime
So providing the information and explaining the reasons besides "the guy's just evil" is mitigation now? Discussion of this shit is off-topic in the first place.
>Her descent into the underground resembles the Japanese folk tale of children being spirited away ("kamikakushi") by some angry god
Being spirited away is certainly not an exclusive Japanese concept. A lot of European cultures have folklore that contains imps or elves or fairies leading children astray, to deaths, to other worlds. I loved episode 4 - it's still my favorite.
Right? It was screwed up.
But Natasha isn't Japanese, she's western. And in western fairy tales, when a child is taken away by the fairies, another is left in its place -- the changeling.
Now, Natasha is shown as some sort of mechanical wizard from a very young age, obsessed with creating robots to the distress of her parents. And yet, we learn from the episode that she didn't build Roboko. She _finds_ Roboko in the underground. The technical skills and knowledge she seems to possess instinctively match up quite closely with technology in the place she is abandoned.
So, is Natasha a fairy to begin with, left as a changeling when as a baby? When she is returned to the underground, is it a homecoming?
And if so, what happened to the human baby the fairies took?
Indeed, I loved it also.
I wonder what the smoke is supposed to signify?
It is to the Japanese.
In traditional Russian fairy tails there are no fairies and no changelings.
Natasha seems to be a human, unlike Kate, and humans don't possess knowledge instinctively. She learned all she knows from the books of her parents which were scientists.
But then, what is Kate?
>Natasha seems to be a human, unlike Kate
What is Kate?
The most important project being to dispose of an entire group of people most resistant to communism, private landowners.
A child abuse and rape victim.
I wouldn't be surprised if it was true.
This is not about geography but culture or did you ever watch a anime where the US were referred to as "The East" just because they are east of Japan?
>What is Kate?
We don't know yet. She hasn't grown since recruiting Natasha. Natasha has definitely grown up. If she's 15 now, then she was, maybe, 8-10 when Kate found her? Given that Kate looks like a Kindergartener now she should have been barely an embryo back then. Instead, no change.
I knew why I didn't like her.
>This is not about geography but culture
Right. To the Japanese, Ukraine should seem to be part of western culture (Christendom).
> or did you ever watch a anime where the US were referred to as "The East" just because they are east of Japan?
Actually no, but I can easily believe that this has happened. Example?
And she knows a lot about udo, the smoke, ancient Udogawa civilization and its rituals. Plus, she was in the tunnels in the first place when she met Natasha.
I wish the first episode actually had them already conquer the world and the rest of the series is the highjinks that come with it.
Episode 10 or 11 then it ends on episode 12 and never gets a second season because it sold poorly. I'm calling it.
I doubt she learned about the quantum entanglement of mountain asparagus from her parents.
Anyway, that's why I wrote that the episode is ambiguous. Maybe she's a human taken by fairies, maybe she's a human abandoned by her parents - and maybe she's a fairy changeling who has lived in the human world. I don't think the episode is conclusive one way or the other.
Kate is obviously younger in Natasha's flashback.
Also, she seems to be 9-10.
It's an original show, not an adaptation of a running source, so it must conclude in one season anyway. If it's made properly then it shouldn't need a second season.
Are you stupid?
This has nothing to do with christianity. Ukraine is part of the former eastern bloc and as such is a eastern country.
To the Japanese the Ukraine was Eastern due to Communism. Japan had more in common with Western/American culture than the Ukrainians after WW2. They didn't just copy the Americans, the Americans copied them.
9-10 olds don't need naps to function properly.
>Kate is obviously younger in Natasha's flashback.
Maybe a little, but she seems to be aging more slowly than Natasha.
>To the Japanese the Ukraine was Eastern due to Communism. Japan had more in common with Western/American culture than the Ukrainians after WW2.
> They didn't just copy the Americans, the Americans copied them.
Original shows hit 2 cour all the time what are you talking about?
I don't really like her except because she carries the name of my favorite Precure.
>Maybe a little, but she seems to be aging more slowly than Natasha.
Ukraine is in Europe, the most important half of Russia is in Europe, their culture and languages are much closer to West than to East.
Also that director obviously has interest in Russian culture, as evidenced by his original shows, so I'm sure he knows better even if an average Japanese doesn't.
Zvezda was one of the biggest disappointments this season. So much misplaced hype. I feel no connection towards the loli. She's cold and uncaring. I only still watch it because of Dva and Natasha.
2 cours is not the same as 2 seasons. Original shows with inconclusive endings for the purpose of possible second season are shit, because if you're making an original show, you're supposed to tell a complete story.
She's the same old "goody two shoes blond class rep that has everything going for her"
She's kinda shit
We know very little about her. At the very least, Asuta seems to dislike her.
Japanese culture and language is very distinct from Chinese due to the long periods of isolation.
They were a part of the USSR and that makes them eastern. Again, we are not talking about geography. Several countries mentioned in your link belong culturally to the west.
Cold War was supposed to be long over, why are you still using its definitions?
You're right, we're talking about culture and fairy tails, not some abstract political definitions, and Russian and Ukrainian cultures are much closer to the West in that aspect no matter how you look at it.
You don't want to break the lonely heart she hides beneath her ojou-sama demeanor?
No, he's right. I hate smoker subhuman scum as much as the next little girl, but seriously, if not for her voice Kate would be kinda shit. Manga version that doesn't have voice acting further shows that. She's kinda hard to think as cute most of the time and she doesn't have White Robin tier fanservice, so she isn't sexy enough either.
I wouldn't call it a disappointment still, because I enjoy it very much and look forward to every episode, but I like Kate a lot less than during pre-air hype.
I think Kate is adorable, but she needs another episode focusing on her and Dva.
If she doesn't become more likable soon, I'm gonna start finding her annoying.
Do you watch the news? Kiev still does everything Moscow says. Stop trying to win this argument with definitions. Japan is a member of the western world because of its democratic government and free economic system. Ukraine on the other hand is still a russian lap dog. It really doesn't matter where on the globe the countries are located but what kind of culture THEIR culture is influnced by.
Heres hoping for a clanker victory. If only they could stop getting drunk and hijacking turkish planes.
That's okay, because Russia has Western culture too. Well, it also has Eastern one, but Western one is dominant. Shocking, I know.
You're the one trying to win the argument with definitions and old ones to boot. The argument originally was about the contents of folk fairy tails and they don't change no matter whose orders Ukrainian puppet ruler decides to follow.
>Japan is a member of the western world because of its democratic government and free economic system.
What that has to do with folk culture?
People still use third world even though the cold war is over. They don't even understand that the third world meant countries neither aligned with the US or the Soviet Union and think it refers to poor, underdeveloped countries.
For the record:first = western, second = eastern
>It really doesn't matter where on the globe the countries are located but what kind of culture THEIR culture is influnced by.
Can't wait for based Putin to save Sweden.
Relative to Japan, everything that isn't the Orient is "Western". Can we stop fighting now pls
Apparently, someone here thinks that youkai, oni, Shintoism and whatever other shit they stole from China are parts of Western culture, because Japan is buddies with US.
>what kind of culture THEIR culture is influnced by
I thought what matters is what culture the country HAS.
The cold war being over hasn't put an end to spheres of influence.
Stalker if you're still here could we get a .gif of Kate's unsuccessful flip attempt?
If you judge a country on that base every country is a special snowflake. If you want to compare countries you have to find a common ground. In this case the influence of the US or USSR/Russia.
maybe manga, but not anime. anime is for children
Anon, please. The culture is not defined by a few centuries of cultural interaction, it's defined by thousands of years of mythology, tradition, history, language, nature and many other things. And in that regard Japan has much more in common with China and Korea, than Japan.
Manga-only fags are so funny.
Every country isn't a special snowflake because many countries still have tons of common cultural points and can be grouped together.
Christ, you're retarded. Kill yourself.
Do people really expect it to serious up, any time but maybe the last few episodes?
I came for the antics and villain SOL and stuff, but if you really came for actual world conquering, wouldn't you see the OP of the show and deduce that it's more lighthearted than that?
Nice ad hominem.
>these shows that air at 1-2 am are for children
Didn't the interviews imply that it was going to take a crazy turn somewhere along the way?
I'd love for it to just be the last few episodes because I'm really enjoying this, but I have a feeling it's going to come pretty soon.
It's absolutely irrelevant to the show, i am sorry.
I am also sorry some 150000 of your peopel were starved to death, almost as much as i am sorry for 450000 of the hiroshima death toll or how many were there again (the show takes place in japan after all, i am glad you asked) and the jews gassed to death (you remember the anti-smoking propaganda), japanese invasion of china, and then there is armenian genocide, there are also crusades, various wars initiated and supported by various nations, turks or whatsitsname desecration of constantinople, barbarian invasion of rome, rome invasion of everything, slavery throughout human history.
Oh and cave lions, those cruel bastards, i am convinced at least one of my ancestors fell to their merciless jaw.
And pits deeper than fifteen meters.
And the ocean. Wind. Fire.
And the edge, i heard it can kill people too.
>of your peopel
I took History courses anon, not Ukrainian nationality or heritage.
Reading /pol/ doesn't count as history courses, anon.
When there's so much pressure, you will do whatever it takes to remain strong and powerful, even if that means killing a few millions.
>historically accurate enough to be able to learn something off
Maybe years ago, but not today. Hell, you can probably learn more on /int/ about history than on /pol/.
You don't have to be a /pol/ack to know that, read a fucking book.
Books can be different too.
Read a lot a books then, if is not too much ask.
My bet is she's an alien.
I don't think anyone pressured him into killing millions of people.
And anyone who gives into that shit is weak.
He more likely just had brain issues and didn't give a fuck about people suffering, must've had some fucked up image of an ideal country that he pursued, which disregarded the living conditions of the people. Same thing is happening in China right now, isn't it?
I guess we could say that contemporary "westerners" have it quite good when it comes to living conditions. Can't complain much as a German, for example.
Anyway, all this bullshit is exactly the reason I'm suicidal. Call me an egdy faglord or a faggy edgelord, I really don't want to associate myself with the human species any more and wish I had the motivation to finally kill myself right now. I hate it when my life is boring and shit but I don't suffer enough to get motivated to kill myself. Last managed to get that motivation three years ago, and wasted it. Statistics say I have a really good chance on the second try though!
She has a mole under her left eye. Isn't that a flag that she's going to know sadness in her life?
>I don't think anyone pressured him into killing millions of people.
The whole point of that was to subjugate Ukraine because they were afraid the peasants may revolt.
>I don't think anyone pressured him into killing millions of people
Obviously, but for the sake of the party and the five years plan he had to succeed to remain in his power position, thus the need to take away the food from the "Kulaks" and letting starve to death, not to mention the mass killings of alleged "spies and traitors"for the sake of Union's "safety".
There's always pressure when you are the big guy, even if it comes from yourself.
Misanthropes are the worst kind of people, right next to vanillafags and secondaries.
Cute that every single classic Soviet deflection tool of the Holodomor has been used in this thread. Deflect, deny, fudge the numbers, chalk it up to unforeseen circumstances of industrialization and finally just to pin in on crazy Stalin.
I don't really know much about Stalin's personal life, but it could be said that he was crazy, but then again, it was not entirely his fault that Holodomor happened, it was the party and it's bureaucracy. Not even trying to justify it, those bastard were worse than the fucking Nazis.
But I stated it in my first post on the matter >>101806005 and then again >>101817327
>fudge the numbers
The numbers are estimated around 3 million to 12 million, which was a mistake on my part since I read about it a long time ago, but only that.
If you want to learn more about the Ukraine holocaust and the oppression of Poland I recommend you Bloodlands by Timothy Snyder, it covers most of the events and uses quotes and plenty of references to other books on the subject.
According to Wikipedia the death toll ranges from 7 to 11 millions but I'm inclined to believe the number is way lower than that. Still a horrible and enormous massacre.
My list wasn't to document the order as they happened here, just to note that they were all touched upon. I'm just amazed how ingrained the deflections are.
Why talk about some of the depressing points in modern Eastern Europe history when we can talk about Yasu
Smoker scum. Yasu a shit
>Dva giving a monologue that resembles Yasu's delusional preview monologues
Don't go down that path, Asuta!
