Are you looking forward to SHAFT's next masterpiece?
Not really since SHAFT hasn't managed to make a good show since Arakawa.
Oh shit, is that Kagerou Days? By SHAFT?
Holy shit, I can barely even tell what the fuck is going on in the manga, and now SHAFT's getting its head-tilting and scenery-fucking paws on it... Goddamn, I'm gonna need some aspirin.
I'll take Hidamari Sketch sequels for 500, Alex
Well it probably won't be as bad as Sasami. I guess that's something.
Isn't it really popular in nippon too? I don't get it.
You know, the light novels are the bulk of the material. The parts where stuff gets really explained aren't shared between the LN and manga.
But even with the information from the light novels, we still don't know why Dark Jesus is such a dick. I theorize it has SOMETHING to do with Hindu mythology.
Maybe it just copied things people like from other places and got lucky.
How would Soul Eater have turned out if it was made by SHAFT.
guess what anon?
ocaloid producer Jin (aka Shizen no Teki-P) is scheduled for a Mekaku City Actors anime live talk this Friday, but news is out early that he'll be in charge of the scripts for anime studio Shaft and director Akiyuki Shinbo's (Madoka Magica, Monogatari, this season's Nisekoi) TV series based on Kagerou Project (Heat-Haze Project).
It managed to pull multiple fanbases under one roof. It has vocaloidfags, shipperfags, obsessive speculahfags, moefags, yaoifags, yurifags etc. Similar to SnK if I had to pick a recent example.
13 episodes and barely animated?
How popular is it? I've seen people say that it will get the most preorders next season, is that likely?
The LN was the second most popular LN in Japan last year, the official twitter page has 160k followers (more than Madoka), the videos have millions of views across youtube and nico douga and the anime is being done by SHAFT (and is receiving critical amounts of hype).
It'll be pretty big, regardless.
very very Strong

Wait, what? Dark Jesus? Man, I'm more lost than I thought.
What I remember is basically some chick fell in love with a guy who died and then she went into depression and some shit happened and she found respite in becoming a computer virus. And the gang all have weird powers that are somehow related to perception. I don't know why the guy who died is now alive and shot everyone dead in the street. After that I assume the manga went back in the time frame to some other point before, and that's where the manga I'm following is right now.
Watch the music videos. Wanna know what Shintaro's deal is? Well, here you go.
Sure am ready for the suffering
Konoha/Haruka's birthday is December 24th, hence he is Jesus. The asshole version of him is black instead of white, hence Dark Jesus.
Also, time travel is involved and this was just BARELY hinted at back in chapter 8(the deja vu).
Don't. That is one of the videos that we can't understand fully even with the light novel knowledge.
yes I am.
I know some people here hate shaft but I always watch their shows and enjoy the unusual visual style even if the show it's self is less than perfect.
That did not help at all. What the fuck did I watch? So he became hikikomori after his osana jimmy died, and what else?
Dammit, I wish people would stop pointing others towards those videos.
It's two separate timelines.
Oh wow. I hope SHAFT do a good job.
Hey, at least I didn't link Outer Science.
why this happen?
why suddenly appear dark jesus?
Hey manga-only guy, what do you think Hibiya and Hiyori's relationship was like? I'm wondering how misleading the manga is if you don't know their backstory from the light novels.
Because suffering for the suffering Snake god
I'm terrible with names. Who?
Hibiya like Hiyori
Hiyora beat Hibiya much times
They are friends
Shota and loli they meet after the shooting.
We don't know. At the same point in the LNs, they encountered normal Konoha and Hibiya instead of Dark Konoha.
...fuck, I don't remember who they are. I remember the idol sister meeting a fan and her little brother, but I don't recall a loli and shota.
I haven't read the LNs, only the manga/videos. Why is Konoha with Hibiya? Is it because of the shit (I still don't understand) in Konoha's State of the World?
> I remember the idol sister meeting a fan and her little brother
Also, they are not related.
Dunno. The shota has a crush or similar on her, but from what I've seen I'd wager that they're friends, maybe osanana jimmies. But that's just guessing on my part, since the manga only showed them following the idol and mc around.
Watching that may or may not be a good idea. It's what's about to happen in the manga.
uhhh, isn't this series relentlessly hetero?
It is, but since when has that stopped anyone? Yaoi/yuri fags are a blissful minority in the fanbase, though, but they're still there.
When Hibiya and Hiyori go to Kenjiro house (is Hiyori brother in law) they meet Konoha
IF THEY DON'T USE THE SONGS
They aren't friends. Hibiya was just brought along to carry her luggage.
What Hibiya has for Hiyori is less of a crush and more of a fanatical obsession. Hiyori is some kind of popular girl and Hibiya is her biggest fan.
That entire thing doesn't happen in the real world.
The fact that SHAFT is animating it pisses me off. I've been following this shit for a long time now, and I just know SHAFT is going to fuck it up somehow.
I know, it happens in the Daze, but it's still important.
Not to mention in the latest chapter of the manga that's translated I think Hibiya was hit by a truck.
SHAFT doesn't really fuck up adaptations. You could point to Nisekoi but to be honest that was shit from the beginning. SHAFT's style easily fits KagePro.
that video is only the kagerou daze
callenge to get the eye power
Vocaloid producer Jin (aka Shizen no Teki-P) is scheduled for a Mekaku City Actors anime live talk this Friday, but news is out early that he'll be in charge of the scripts
Characters in KagePro whose deal I don't quite get rankings
Would you tie Mary up and beat her with sticks until she cried and turned you to stone
If you know who Azami is, shouldn't you already know everything?
I happen to be an idiot, anon.
The videos are very misleading. This event does not happen in the manga or LN.
It ought to be
Mary would be the funnest mekakushi to be
>Riding the Konoha express around town
>Going on walks with perfect husbando Seto
>Being slowly corrupted by Ene
>Sharing weird interests with Momo
>Getting into trouble with Kano
>Lighting up Shintarou's heart
>Intimate bath time with Hibiya
I can't think of anything for Kido.
I don't know what the fuck is going on but I'm certainly looking forward to it.
Hibiya its gonna be /ss/ isn't it?
Mary and Hibiya haven't interacted yet in the novels, but there's potential for some cute shit there. She's never dealt with somebody smaller than herself.
Momo gonna get Hibiya D
I thought Mary x Kano was pretty much a lock
Will Shintaro ever find love?
Love that isn't a corpse?
