Who is excited for this?
Almost sounds like Kamisama inai from the synopsis only the guy is the MC
Please don't fuck this up.
it's pretty much most of the same BONES staff who worked on Scrapped Princess
take that as you will
I haven't watched Scrapped Princess yet, in my backlog. I heard mixed reactions.
How could you possibly see any connection?
> Toru Acura is a 20-year-old retired soldier meandering through life now that the war has ended. He encounters Chaika Trabant, a 14-year-old sorceress carrying a coffin, and follows her in hopes of finding meaning to his life again.
I don't know, I read 'girl carrying coffin' and from there I instantly thought of Ai. Just recently watched the OVA so there.
I'll stick with the manga because it has superior art.
stick to the manga anon
The art kinda strange. But I'll watch it, I have weakness for fantasy themed anime.
I even always read a manga with new fantasy sword-magic school setting.
I was until I saw the key visual.
their outfits turns me on
Will watch the fuck out of it, I'm a huge Sakaki Ichiro fan. Plus hopefully Bones will go sakuga as fuck on it.
I like Chaika's eyebrows.
I love her thighs.
So how much do you think they're actually going to adapt? It's the same director as Scrapped Princess, whose source material was absolutely butchered in order to fit the whole series into 2 cours, but since Chaika isn't (I think) over yet, I don't know if they'd take the same route. I have a hard time imagining it pulling 2 episodes per book the way SP did
Always excited for delicious Namaniku artwork, even if it's a TV adaptation.
They are nice.
Looks Okay. The mc has a girlish face in that pic though.
You know he's doing designs for Space Dandy, right? It really brightened up my day when I noticed that listed in the credits.
I only noticed their mecha designer, nice.
Yeah, they farmed out the milieu of aliens that always show up in the background shots to a bunch of different artists, ATK being one of them.
Very excited. But I would be even more with a PV.
How many girls are interested in the mc?Does the knight girl in the latest chapter fall for him?
The manga hos possibly the worst type of MC you could possibly have, so no.
Truthfully i'm fed up with goodie two shoes charaters
The MC in this one is a trained soldier that has no other purpouse in life other than war and when the chance to start up the next world war presents upon itself he doesn't linger on useless morals and shit about no violence
>Named after a shitty slav biplane and a shitty semi-slav car
Everyone in the series is named after cars.
Only a dragon, his sister and Chaika. You can count red Chaika in too I guess.
I love the whole theme of how war and the end of war specifically changes people that runs through the work. I'm not saying it's DEEP but it's still really interesting.
Am I the only one shipping the sister?
It was fun all these decades ago.
>Life on the planet
Wait, shit, really?
Well, almost everyone. The MC and his sister have the last name Acura, Chaika's actual last name is GAZ, the other Chaika is named Bogdan, the main antagonist group is led by a knight named Gillet(te), a couple of his underlings are named Callaway and Avtotor, the first main bad guy is named Abarth... that's a couple off the top of my head, anyway.
The author pulled the same thing in Scrapped Princess, naming everyone after firearms.
Ahhh, this will make a rewatch of Scrapped Princess more fun.
Wait, even the dragoons?
No, not the dragoons. I'm using the word "everyone" exaggeratedly, sorry. Pretty much all the main human characters in SP though, and the Peacekeepers. Even the horses (Leo's is named Parabellum, and the Casull's horses they had at the start, but I don't remember what their names were anymore). Pacifica's pet rooster that never showed up in the anime was named Desert Eagle.
It's actually driving me nuts in Chaika because whenever there's a character whose name isn't immediately obvious as being automobile-related I spend a bunch of time googling to try and figure out how the fuck it might be. It's led to me learning a lot about obscure automobiles like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orlo
Fuck, pretty much a major let down then. DROPPED like a shit.
How about you try reading it first?
>Hikikomori NEET assassin
Dropped, the second shit. Won't even bother reading.
She and Toru have such great chemistry, but he's clearly a moefag for Chaika
Darn. This is great.
Now you made me as obsessed as you in finding out the car reference.
It's just that without war, his training was invalidated completely. Right now, he's helping the main girl because it gives him something that puts his talents to use and he's hoping that reviving the king will bring another great war for him to work in.
I'm with you, but there's no way in hell we're getting it.
It's even admitted right off the bat that they're not actually related. It's like a huge tease.
Does mc like sister? if not im out
Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
