If you could go back in time and prevent the greatest disaster in human history,
but you'd have to kill tens of thousands of people first, would you?
What if you had to kill the only person that gives a fuck about you?
That would either be the black plague or Hitler's conquest. Either way I don't think either of them should be changed. They have thought us a lot and were invaluable in further maturing our civilisation.
150 million death's still isn't a valid excuse to redo something and making all previous efforts invalid.
2 days till valentines day and I still haven't decided on a good deito ;_;
What about a fiction disaster that killed 150M (as from Date A Live on which this question is based on)? That disaster even continues to have after shocks 30 years later that still kill people on occasion.
Manipulating history is a touchy subject. There's no guarantee that preventing it won't cause dramatic negative changes or even more devastating disaster. So this >>101972899. Whichever "disaster" happened, it was a lesson to learn anyway.
Now, preventing global disaster that will certainly happen in the future is another story.
Will technically the worst disaster in human history was the lake toba eruption
Depends on how much people you need to kill before going back in time and will they be alive again after changing history. If it's 20k people and they all will be alive in newly created timeline, then it's not even a question - gotta do it.
I shall prevent the fall of Rome and then proceed to conquer the world.
They got the magical ability to use spirit energy in return. It got them devices which could repair major terrain damage, regenerate critical tissue damage, levitation, stealth and a ton of other applications. I wouldn't be surprised if the spirit energy could be used for major advances in space travel.
So yes... I say it was worth the 150 million lives.
>Prevent whatever disaster you chose
>This changes the world so much that you are not born and thus can't travel back in time later on to prevent the disaster
It's quite likely a lot of them wouldn't even be born due to the fact a disaster that scale would undoubtedly had immediate effects for the entire world.
Jokes on you op
It's all a pedestrian paradox
No. What's in the past belongs in the past.
>If I don't kill this person, 20% of humanity will perish
>If I kill this person, 50% of humanity will perish
Usually no. I don't think changing things in the past is right. In DALs case.. If you can prevent the spacequakes then maybe. But it had to be guaranteed to succeed. No putting things up to chance
>caring about people who aren't me
>killing people to save them
Sounds like a JRPG plot to me, and those causes are always wrong.
Problem is Kurumi has no real guarantee that it will even work.
A bit off topic. But to DAL lnfags another chapter of volume 9 has been translated if you want to read it
In Kurumi's case that wouldn't work because she wants to kill the main reason she has powers.
I read the nex chapter and Jesus, Natsumi is retarded as fuck.
Haha. It was pretty cute how she overthought everyone's motives.
Indeed. It was a bit frustrating
It's only a side plot in a harem.
More like annoying and frustrating, if they really wanted to hurt her, she wouldn't be alive to begin with.
Will we ever get more Kurumi in the novels?
Which is funny because I can see it being brought up alot if DAL was an actual JRPG with ADV elements and not just a straight up ADV
I mean, the retarded "noble" cause of killing people to save them, it always ends horribly wrong.
Sure, the main reason people follow this series is Tsunako after all.
Because you don't repay those you hate with death. You repay them with torture.
Natsumi knew this, unlike you. Also her way of thinking is very typical for a person who lost trust in humans. I can tell as I had these wild thoughts all the time when I was a child.
It would probably be brought up more if the anime didn't skip the explanation,
As far as anime-onlyfags know Kurumi is just edge without any explanation for why. I hope the fine a place to shove it in in S2.
But they are not torturing her, she is the one causing all kind of trouble for Shidou and it took two fucking satellites and almost Shidou's second death to change Natsumi's mind.
That would require changing scenes or some kind of recap.
Well it's not like you can just start trusting a person who used to be your enemy in 2 days. Atleast that's not how it normally works.
Kurumi will die.
I well personally fly to Japan and wrech shit up if she dies
It's to important too skip. And as it was the very last thing is Vol 4 they could just stick it at the very start of S2 and it wouldn't be changing anything. Or they could put it as a flash back during Kurumi search of DEM for the 2nd.
Here I can carry you to there, just rember one you reach nipland you're alone
If she's doing all this is because is confident in her abilities or Phantom convinced her somehow.
She was never alive to begin with. She always was living on borrowed time, hence the ridiculous cost for using her powers and another reason she wants to change the past.
Kurumi's scenes with Phantom are possible, Kotori's scenes are lost forever though.
Don't know. I think she was originally human and her parents were kill in a spacequake. But that pure speculation.
Then I shall build a 100 foot memorial statue in her memory
What's this means? she is searching for a way to born as a human?
>two clock threads
There is not salvation for Kurumi, you can't forgive a mass murderer just like that, it's not that simple.
They could shove them in during the Miku interview, but that would be kind of forced and technically S3
You know that made me a bit curious about which characters appear the most. I just went and did a word count of how many times a girl is mentioned or in a scene in the LNs
Tohka-2,303 (vol 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)
Kotori -2,148 (vol 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)
Origami-1,726 (vol 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)
Kurumi-925 (vol 3,4,6,7)
Miku-821 (vol 6,7,8,9)
Natsumi-684 (vol 8, 9)
Yoshino-680 (vol 2,3,4,6,7,8,9)
Kaguya-594 (vol 5,6,7,8,9)
Yuzuru-575 (vol 5,6,7,8,9)
Let's say Kurumi was originally human.
That would mean Phantom told Kurumi about her powers and using her.
That's season 3 material though and there is not reason to shove that if Miku doesn't remember anything.
She received her Spirit Powers after she was killed in the big disaster. Her Angel borrowed her some 'time', but just barely enough to survive and with great interest to pay. Since then she was only able to live on by stealing the life of others and even using her powers meant she had to pay a price of using up a lot of her time.
I don't know. But I would have sex with origami
First spirit with a 2 volume arc.
Before kurumi buys the farm can she borrow origamis time?
An hour without a shit post is that a record?
Wasn't there a flashback in volume 5 where Kurumi was mentioned once in Shidou's thoughts?
Once. I didn't think it was worth including her as a part of 5 for just two words
She probably accepted the magic surgery to increase her abilities and that means a time limit.
It is a crime that yoshino doesn't have more focus
That is some really fucked up destiny. so her main objective is atleast find a way to get his real ass out of the way of the great disaster... now I think about it, 30 years is a really big spawn of time
>Kaguya and Yuzuru last
It's just speculation, but her powers require more time.
That's pretty much 100% what I would have expected it was. I wish there was more Yoshino. But I also love Tohka so that's very rewarding
Is it though? Maybe I was Tachibana sensei all along?
4 words, 2 scenes
don't post speculation as fact.
If you're Tachibana then stop wasting time on making spirits look "cool" and focus on the plot.
At least she has a good body.
Not really, I would say average at best.
Flat as a table
Tohka fans have it great. They get tons of tohka time
Well I'll try to fit something in next chapter as an afterthought. Got to make the people love Origami as a priority afterall.
I guess this proves nips don't care about the plot and just read this for the girls.
That's a problem though, nobody cares about Origami.
Yoshino deserves half of Origami scenes also I can't believe Natsumi is that high.
Why is Origami so disgusting?
Gross chan best girl
God.. the things I'd do to Tohka.. Things like patting her on the head and holding her hand
It's not a good idea since I don't know how bad the change will affect me or the history.
Fuck off, this is a Christian imageboard and Tohka is for rape
Too lewd, I would rape her then ditch her.
Don't forget buying her lots of food.
That's not Reine
All that time and still not real character development for any of them.
Not a chance. How in gods name do you stop something like this from happening? Thats just too much power.
>wasting money to fill a black hole
Because when you focus on introducing new girls, and not developing the ones you have.. that is the end result
That's a Tohka fart. just... don't let her get near of the beans
That's why Kurumi needs Shidou powers or at least that's what she believes.
I think Tachibana waste too much time in "cool scenes" for spirits, Shidou at least has some development but it's hard to take it seriously when you use him for comedy, I mean at least give him a proper training or a hint about his powers.
Someone say rape
>or a hint about his powers.
His power is than all the grils are behind of his dick or in a second case... Copy?
Easy, use an even bigger power to create an even bigger spacequake.
>yfw origami is capable of this now
Hey don't look at me, the beans have that kind of reaction in the spirits
There is no bigger known power.
Yeah, 2 times.
Procede with the image bump
>implying Kurumi rape
Updated with twins. Who should be next?
The best kind of rape. Do you have something against that?
I'm still disappointed by the lack information and backstories.
natsumi of course
Looks great, these too.
Kurumi is too pure for that and humans are not worthy of her.
>Date a slut
I want to see the complete cast, there's something wrong with that?
Miku, onee-san Natsumi and Shiori or Shidou.
Reine, Rinne, the main cast in other words.
Christ, somehow forgot to include her.
>the main cast
Including Rinne of course, she was the true winner in the first game.
Origami pls go.
Who is that?
She got the bad end not the true end.
Someone who is more noticeable than the twins and the best girl.
Ok then, dump some Natsumi. Both.
So any idea who original spirit is?
I want my 8 bit RPG adventure!
ebin post /b/rah xD
This one looks good, I'm still mad Tachibana wasted such a perfect desgin.
>baaawww my fictional character isn't real
Loli natsumi is better because loli is always superior
Tohka or any DAL girl aren't real either.
Ignore the shitposter.
Meant to reply >>101979671
If I had the ability to kill even one person and get away with it I would.
Yoshino a best girl
Kurumi a clock second
Nah, onee-san Natsumi is way better if we are talking about design, loli Natsumi's hat is good though.
Yes indeed. Exactly my point. What does it matter she used that appearance as a disguise?
I have a feeling we will be see back adult Natsumi sooner or later anyway. That and other transformation shenanigans.
THE SPIRITS MUST BE PURGED!
>I have a feeling we will be see back adult Natsumi sooner or later anyway
Don't get your hopes up, the entire point of Natsumi's arc was to make her accept her real form.
Bad habits aren't easily forgotten. Also this is Tachibana we are speaking off.
You won't get away with it
So you're telling me Natsumi's arc was pointless in the end.
If Natsumi can be loved just the way she is, then why bother making a fake appearance anymore?
I honestly don't care, sure adult Natsumi looked great but so does loli Natsumi, just in a different way.
Great, let's ignore Natsumi's development and show her onee-san for the fanservice.
>Bad habits aren't easily forgotten
Sounds lame, I thought DAL was a less generic series than your usual haremshit.
Exactly the kind of thing that sells
Exactly! people are here for the fanservice after all, who cares about the plot?
Poor Shidou, his character was utterly destroyed thnaks to this.
Sure, if you hate fun. Why can't you have a healed Natsumi that still likes to pull some pranks every now and then with her powers?
I bet he is enjoying it.
Because that would mean her arc was pointless, why not just have fun with loli Natsumi.
If you could have sex with any DAL who would it be and why would it be a lightly drunk super lewd Yoshino?
Origami must be feeling pretty cocky to take 4 spirits all at once.
Now these, are pure fanservice characters.
More like his soul is crushed every time he's crossdressing.
Why not both? It would be such a waste of her transformation powers and the kind of situations it could create.
You disgust me.
>Losing against them when you have the BFG
My dick wouldn't fit her vagina without ripping it. I would pick someone else, more mature.
At least Keima is a serious character but in a LN with Tsunako designs is hard to take serious any male character, just look at Kannazuki.
Yuzuru is best twin.
No. Shirou's monologue in the sewer summarises the best moral reasoning behind it- denying their death and grievances, and the effect of that on the world and its people is the worst thing you can do.
Never mind the fact that taking others' lives against their will, even if it is in the pursuit of the many, is not morally justifiable in my eyes.
From a practical standpoint, fucking with history would have too many consequences.
But Natsumi is sealed and Tachibana never uses spirit powers for comedy.
I don't want to do something so lewd to my favourite dummy
At least they will get some doujins.
read the OP.
I just want to rape Tohka.
Daily reminder that non-moon speaking /a/nons will never get to enjoy this wonderful and glorious game.
>tfw I'm a non-moon speaking anon.
>Tachibana never uses spirit powers for comedy
Near the end.
>slightly drunk super lewd Yoshino
Getting her lightly drunk to get her lewd side out seems like an interesting idea, perhaps she gets drunk off the smell of alcohol, because what the fuck japan.
Normally I'd be against this shit, but Tsunako.
I'd be able to enjoy it if Playasia would just fucking ship it already.
That's in short stories though, I'm talking about the LNs.
Good, I don't want a bad ending.
Remember the 6 trillion!
Oy vey, my father was gassed 5 times, he's a true hero.
Brilliant work anon.
The jews should have a country from Alexandria to Aleppo
Saved hard, keep it up son.
I continue my countdown.
47 days until April.
Looks great, good job.
57 until Tohka day (April 10)
Season 2 starts in April 2 or 9.
No I don't have the cranial capacity to understand the far reaching consequences of that kind of tampering of history.
I would however go back in time to help myself not be a massive beta pussy in exchange for maybe punching my neighbor in the face.
Ok Anon, let's just pretend /a/ is your blog.
Why would you punch your neighbour in the face?
Tsunako designs or not, fanservice characters are never a good thing.
>let's just pretend /a/ is your blog
Can't wait for dark Tohka rape doujins.
Don't be jealous. Besides Kotori she is the only Spirit that has a birthday, but don't be mad.
Which ribbon do Tohka fans prefer for her?
>Tsunako designs or not
Nah, that's the reason I make an exception for the twins.
Miku has a birthday too but we don't know the exact date.
Who do you want Tohka to rape?
I want the opposite.
Yeah well. I was referring to the characters who's birthday dates are actually known.
Dark Tohko's ribbon.
I want dark Tohko mindbreak doujins.
Ahahaha. Not likely.
But Tohko's birthday is unknown, April 10 is just the day Shidou named Tohka
All of them are cute. They correspond to her outfits and they're all super cute. I think I prefer this outfit though
Anything is possible in doujins.
Tell that to Japan.
She's going to be mindbroken and raped by faceless men.
Sorry but Japan is in charge of doujins but I think the twins and Kurumi will get all the doujins.
It's been made her birthday afterwards as well.
I prefer Kotori's white ribbons.
All of them. Though the one she has for her astral dress is probably the best
I guess. But I doubt a demonic tyrant would make for believable rapebait.
She became a slaughtering tyrant because she was faced with such despair
It's more like an anniversary if you ask me.
Twins will be more likely.
Are you really applying the LNs logic to doujins? rape doujins are imminent.
Then what about Shiori? Will be get a good shot at that?
Well Japan likes idols so there is a chance for at least a Miku doujin.
You can't mindbreak what is already broken.
>April 10 is just the day Shidou named Tohka
That was the first day they met, not the day she was named.
As I said before, are you really applying normal logic?
Just like you can't rape the willing, you can't mindbreak the broken.
It's a matter of 1+1=2
Shiori and the twins already have a doujin, check sadpanda.
Kotori is so hot
That's weird, a lot of things in anime are impossible but those things happen anyway.
A miku doujin would be great but I think people will hate her.
Dark Tohko astral dress is better, just saying.
Now THAT hat was a pain in the ass to make.
Miku and Shiori tomorrow.
Are you still here, make one for Miku or Reine next.
it looks splendid.
Good job again.
Oh I agree. Both or Tohka's are my favourite ones. I love the armour
Nice work anon.
>Dark Tohka is rampaging.
>She encounters a man.
>mfw no face
>She charges, growling animalistically
>Man catches her and throws her to the ground.
>She struggles to escape, but the man's power level is OVER 9000!
>He tears at her clothing, revealing her shapely body.
>She struggles even harder, but to no avail.
>He pulls down his pants and puts his pOnOs to her VagOO and J-JAMS IT IN
>She growls harder and fiercely tries to remove him, but he's too strong.
>As he speeds up, she begins to whimper.
>He finally finishes and her belly inflates due to how much cum he injected into her.
>She has an extremely hard orgasm due to his cum.
>He removes himself from her unresponsive body.
>Tohka is still floating on waves of pleasure as the man loads her into his van...
Looks good, can't wait for the Miku one.
and yet she is suppoused to have the bigger INT stat of all the spirits... I... don't know what to say
>man catches and throws her to the ground
No but you can break her even more so much that she suddenly becomes addicted to cocks.
Kurumi is too confident in her time control powers and Kotori has a high INT too.
>tfw no new Yoshino doujins
>thinking DAL will have doujins
8.5/10 would heartily fap to.
It will have, one or two but at least it's something also you can check pixiv.
Oh it will have a few like last time. But once again they will never be scanned
This fight was so ridiculous.
And you would think such delicious designs would be put into the right use.
No gangbang? boring.
Most DAL doujins have shitty art and the good ones will never be scanned.
I don't know why the thought of someone actually being able to physically overpower dark tohka makes me laugh
He's bringing her home to his rape cave, where she'll be gang-banged.
>more Natsumi art
goddamit yes just for fucks sake to see what would happen!
Because rape doujins ignore all logic possible.
>Because rape doujins ignore all logic possible.
That's exactly what I did.
Natsumi is getting more fanart huh? still nothing of high quality though.
At least post good fanart.
Now that I think about it, DAL is pretty mediocre.
Well that's a random thought..
Didn't mean to reply.
Your thought process is bad, pls stop think
she's all talk. she came so easily.
It just crossed my mind now, there is a lack of character development, no backstories, too much focus on the girls cuteness.
So many gifs in this thread.
Gif-kun pls gif more Yoshino
Well. I think it's really up to how you want to view things. The backstories are coming. The reason we know nothing is because it's being saved. Why it's taking so long I don't know. Some more will be revealed next volume. I think the character development hasn't been so bad. Better than some harems. The girls are more dynamic than some other ones. The reason being they actually have a legit reason to like the MC and they aren't useless after being sealed. I think the plot is interesting enough. I'm quite excited for volume 10. But I see where you're coming from
See >>101984919 also the Fraxinas is useless, Shidou's training was pointless and I feel like he will never get a proper training or at least a little of information about his powers.
He seems to do better on his own. They ruin the dates. Also, I'm pretty sure they don't want him using spirit power or knowing why he can use them. Why? I don't know. Everything is really hazy right now
But the little development they get is wasted because Tohka is the main girl and their relevance disappear after just an arc, Kurumi's plan will fail, the plot is predictable, Westcott is a generic villain and there is not enough focus on Yoshino.
say it ain't so anon kun
But at least give him a proper training, I feel like Tachibana only uses Shidou for comedy, seriously the crossdressing thing was unnecessary and just ruined his character and now everyone is interested in Shiori.
No more Yoshino please, my heart is too weak.
you're in luck this is basically the last one and its a happy yoshino
I think I will die today.
That's the problem with harem in general. Some characters just won't get enough focus. There is still things unknown. Sure kurumi won't succeed but that isn't supposed to be a secret. We know nothing about spirit 6 and 2 and origami. plus I don't think DEM is the final villain. Wescott is going to die at some point. To be honest we don't know where spirits even come from or what they are.
>they come from their world
What is that world and why are they being forced into the human world?
There are a lot of unanswered questions. though one thing that can be counted on is shido being very powerful toward the end. either fighting with spirits or against them.
Yoshino needs more screentime, I'm surprised she is so popular with just a few of scenes.
>There are a lot of unanswered questions
That's another problem, 10 volumes and no answers so far also I know Westcott isn't the final boss, he's too generic and Phantom seems more interesting, well I guess I can't blame Tachibana for focusing on the fanservice since it has Tsunako designs it still bothers me.
At least the plot is consistent enough and not fanfiction tier like DxD. I'm interested in Shidou's past, what are spirits, Phantom's objective, etc.
Who wants more Yoshino in their DAL?
I want some inverse Yoshino
I will agree that it has been too long and we don't know enough.
Yeah, I hope 10 has more plot in it. Not "plot" but actual story.
Fuck you, DxD is great.
I want a spinoff with Yoshino as the main girl, more lewd scenes with Shidou and more kisses.
I like DxD but the plot is stupid as fuck and the amount of fanservice is ridiculous.
He said Yoshino not Natsumi.
I just want some answer, more dark spirits and less Origami.
I'd like this, forget the retard and give us the best girl.
Same thing. Point is, no one wants that. We want /po/
Origami pls go.
If you're going to be rude and whine all the time then you can just drop this.
The LN needs less Origami.
It's going to have more now.
Hey, we are talking about a spinoff.
and that's the worst part, at least Tachibana is using Origami as an excuse to give us more plot.
Enjoy the no relevance after this arc, only a miracle can turn Origami into a likeable character.
Funny. You guys said the same about miku and natsumi
You do a word count for Mana too?
Gimme a sec
But it's different in this case, Origami has been unlikeable for 9 volumes and Tachibana only has one arc to change that.
I'm still not conviced with Natsumi's reason but we already know Origami's reason and is fucking stupid.
Is this from the PV?
somewhere around 440+ but no more than 470. I wrote it down but didn't type it out. I have the novels and looked through the kanji for 7 and 9 earlier since they aren't translated yet
No, it's from the beginning of episode 1. Did you watch the anime?
I wonder if Kurumi knows the dangers of time travel.
Sure thing. By the end of this year you will all be loving origami and wanting more of her
Yeah but the colors look different, maybe it's just me.
I believe it's from the opening scene
He is right
Yeah, sure. Tohka will die and Origami will take her place as the main girl right?
It will. I guarantee it
I have the strong feeling she don't. and I have even more reasons to belive she is not as inteligent as her chart indicates
Kurumi is intelligence but she is under the Phantom's influence.
Not even in your dreams Origami, even if Tohka dies Kotori would take her place.
Why Kotori is such a cunt?
I wouldn't be surprised if it was Phantom the one who told Kurumi about her about powers and the plan to "save the world"
Hey, white Kotori is a sweet and cute imouto, Shidou has easy control over her.
Kotori should kill tohka so she can win
Thanks, makes sense considering she's a side character currently. Though I thought it would've been closer to Kurumi's word count, considering how their screen time seems to be about equal.
What about Reine?
everyone kills hitler on their first time travel adventure. they just do it in reverse order by the attosecond, so his death gets moved back in tiny increments as the timeline gets changed with every attempt
I wouldn't say that sweet considering she did start Shidou's day with a drop kick. She's still sadistic if anything, just more cutesy.
If Tohka dies, the harem is a given.
It was just to wake him up, she is harmless in imouto mode.
She had a few moments where she talked with just shidou, but yeah I would have guessed it was closer.
Kotori's date was the best date even though it was unnecessary.
>Reine has more time than the twins
and all is right in the world, Reine volume when?
That's a horrible idea. You saw shidou's blind irrational determination when Tohka was kidnapped? Could you imagine how he would react if she died? Or worse, if someone close to him killed her like you suggested.
That would give him more determination to protect the other girls also more character development.
Sure, but losing tohka would be devastating to him
Well at the rate that the story is going, I think Mana is going to have more words next volume considering it's Origami, considering Mana is kind of the example Origami had first of power that could beat a spirit. I see them clashing blades next volume.
But not for so long, he still has Yoshino and the others.
There are much more pleasant ways of waking someone up. Dropkicking someone is pretty sadistic.
I doubt it, if something will happen, it will be with Shidou, Tohka and the others since the summary says that.
Isn't mana on their side now? I think she could help since origami is going to be really strong
I was thinking of a repeat fight of Mana vs Origami like in volume 3. Something to show that despite the power Origami got, she's still in over her head. Plus, at this point Mana is probably the only one who can protect the spirits considering the rest of them are weakened.
Yeah, but the interaction between Origami with Shidou and tohka is more important than an interaction with Mana if you ask me.
Yeah volume 7 was kinda sweet in that sense that he really thinks of tohka as irreplaceable. It's understandable how miku changed her ways after seeing that.
True. But I still think she will be there. They need all hands on deck more than likely
Mana's suit is not powerful enough to fight against a wizard.
Mana is powerful due to her overall skill level. Mana's new suit is still high tech and Origami doesn't have the brain cancer mods that Jessica had, so it will be an overall even fight.
Yoshino was the best thing about this filler episode.
Such a nice Clock thread.
We need to start threads like this more often.
Origami has skill too but she has never been able to show her real potential because the AST was weak, she is apparently a genius after all.
Because we are discussing the LNs and not circlejerking over Kurumi
So is Mana apparently. And as genius as Origami is, I get the feeling that Mana is still stronger.
It's pretty calm in here.
every time. I know she is a support type, but it's still funny to see
DON'T~ LOSE~ YOUR~ HEAAAAAAAAAAD~~~~~
>kill 10000 Jews
Inb4 not even /a/ related
If Origami is Tohka's rival that means she has to be stong, Mana just gives a better impression because always had the best equipment but now is different.
Of course, it's just that I think Mana crushing Origami would represent that at the state Origami is in now, she still wouldn't be able to beat the spirit who killed her parents, which is the important part. She needs a trigger to become a spirit.
I was expecting a higher SPI for Miku to be honest, she abused her powers in volume 6 and 7.
Don't underestimate Mana. She is pretty tough.Though with the wizard suit I don't doubt origami has passed her, but I don't think the gap is that big. She could probably manage
I want a Kotori.
I would say the same for Origami, we know Mana's capacity but now it's time to show Origami's capacity in combat, I'm not even an Origamifag but she has power now.
But Origami is not a spirit, and turning her into a spirit is so predictable and Tachibana knows that.
It's been a while since we had a thread like this one.
I've only read the summery of Vol 7, but the vibe I get from Shidou is more of a Shirou type broken "I want to save everyone, even if it kill me" than a specific love of Tohka.
I really haven't seen him show anything that make me thinks he even like any of them.
and for that reason she will become a spirit
Because he wants to save all the spirits, I wouldn't be surprised if he summons demons to reach that goal.
I actually read the whole thing. I have physical copies. He doesn't "love" anyone romantically per say, but it's really obvious that he cares a lot. That much is obvious.
It's too early for that, wait more.
Origami places a precedence over power above all else, even love. The one thing stronger than Ellen is a spirit.
Could it be that Miku was turned into a Spirit quite recently when compared to the others?
The fact that she could 'abuse' her powers so much is that, given her conviction that singing is the only thing she can do right, her mana usage is quite efficient (unlike, say, Kurumi's) so she can keep her song going despite her limited stats.
That fits with what I said. He's a Shirou-type. It's actually surprising how much they have in common.
Making an irrelevant character the most powerful spirits is not a good idea if you ask me.
She was definitely turned quite recently. If I recall, she was turned only a few weeks or months before she met Shidou?
The reason miku fell for shidou is because she saw how much tohka meant to him. She wanted that too. He clearly does care about them
I thought she was turned into a spirit as a child or was it when she tried suicide?
It was a few years ago I think?? Not when she was a child. maybe when she was 15. I think she is 17 now
>and turning her into a spirit is so predictable and Tachibana knows that.
I mean come on, how many times the most predictable and obvious answer is the correct one in this media?
I'm just gonna say I'll prepare myself for the trainwreck, just in case
Love is an obstacle when you want to save the world
Summoning a demon requires despair. And LOTS of it. Maybe someone will die after all
No, she saw how much he was willing to risk to save Tohka and interpreted it as caring for Tohka deeply because a normal person would only risk that much for some they cared deeply about. But if Shidou is like Shirou it doesn't mean anything.
If you think that's a trainwreck then prepare for the imminent time travel arc to save Kurumi a.k.a. the moment when the plot goes full retard.
She wants it. I want her. What to do.
I was just about to prepare myself for that, thanks for remind me
Or maybe he will be in front of a situation that requires more power than an angel.
You still need despair to tap into that power. That much won't be enough
That's what I mean, if an angel is not enough, he would feel the need for more power and that usually leads to despair.
Kotori said Shidou was filled with despair and sadness as a child, maybe he's familiar with that feeling.
Kill yourself and join her in the afterlife, it works trust me.
When was the last time we had this much discussion?
>But if Shidou is like Shirou it doesn't mean anything
Who do you mean by this? he cares about everyone and his mind seems to be stronger than before.
Isn't that not it though? Isn't he risking everything because he cares? Miku argues with him a lot in that volume and tries to convince him it's not worth it while he won't have any of it and he tells her tohka means more to him than that. I think you'd have him do the same with all the spirits. But isn't that caring about them? Also, don't confuse two different characters. They share some similar traits, but in the end they are different
If what you believe is true then Miku likes shidou for no reason.
Maybe after S2, anon.
I disagree. He does love them. Japanese people don't show a lot of affection like in western romance or relationships. I think Shidou is a good example of a more realistic Japanese youth. The reason he wants to save them is because he can see that spirits are not all bad. He also doesn't want them to have that sadness because of his past. But while saving them and during after care, he builds a relationship. Though it's not a "i love you so much" kind of thing. He really does genuinely care about them. That is love. Like someone said earlier the problem with this series is that you don't get to develop relationships because each volume you throw in new girls. It hurts the development
Reine appears a lot huh? I still think she should be the commander, she was such a good support for Shidou in volume 8.
From yesterday or two days ago: Found the poster. Looks like it comes from the BDs, not Rinne Utopia. It's a small one too.
Twins a best?
It's still a lot of time and they just found her presence in volume 6, that's weird.
And it looks like a box, not a poster. There might be a bigger poster version elsewhere, but I can't find it.
I don't own it. I plan on buying it to add to my DaL collection, but it's way too expensive right now. I'd also want to buy S2's BDs, and I simply can't afford all of that.
When is Reine time to shine? and where is that Reine route Tachibana?
They're pretty good, but not best.
Yuzuru is best twin.
I personally found Kaguya to be better, but whatever floats your boat, bro.
Ah, yeah this stuff is pricey. I'm saving up for a summer trip to tokyo. Planning to buy DaL stuff then
Nah, Kaguya is too childish, Yuzuru is more mature and sexier.
The base price is just absurd. I don't mind the shipping fee, but $300-400 on just 13 episodes + first press limited items is insane. I am searching every day for a cheaper alternative to get the BD short stories though, but I only managed to find Rinne Utopia.
I hope you save enough money to buy season 2 BDs.
Well, Kaguya's being cuter and the hotter one to rape is what sold me for her between the two.
Why is she so perfect?
You better have thousands then. Those fucking plane tickets man
I can most likely save up enough in time to get both season 1 and 2 BDs, but I wouldn't be able to afford the figures and manga I also buy. I'll probably start a very slow saving for both BDs, so I hope the limited edition releases will still be available for both seasons once I finally save up enough.
Kaguya was the best twin for me for a long time then volume 8 happened, her date was short but good.
You better buy season 2 BDs, I'm expecting low sales this time.
Can you give us a better scan than this.
Upon closer inspection. Yeah, those disc pics are unique and so far not anywhere else.
Second seasons never sell as well
Oh I know. I've been there before. I just didn't know about DaL last time
I want to destroy that Tohko nendo.
I said it's not mine, so I can't scan it. I just finally found out where it's from, since I kept looking at Rinne Utopia stuff because of the filename in your picture. Maybe in a year when I finally buy it.
I dunno, must be the bear and her demeanor.
That's what I mean and spring has a lot of strong titles as well.
That's not her nendoroid. It's a small trading figure that came with the limited edition version of the 6th light novel.
I think that was the mini trading fig thing that came with the limited edition volume 6. It's so cute looking. Wish I had known about DAL back then. I would have gotten that.
I still want to destroy it.
You monster. I have the actual nendo. It's so cute. In fact, it's one of my prized possessions. I won't let you touch her.
Dat limited edition Tohka cover.
You can still buy it on YAJ for ~2500 JPY.
I can't wait for Yoshino's. I missed out on Tohka's but will be ordering her soon. Waiting for my swimsuit edition to arrive.
One of the best looking pictures of Tohka in my opinion.
even if you went back in time, nothing would change, because you already went back in time to change the past. but since the disaster still happened that means you failed to stop it
Maybe cause it's one of the few where she isn't smiling like a doofus
Tohko must suffer, that's my fetish.
It was too perfect, I bet Yoshino did that on purpose, wait does this count as a kiss?
Oh, I get it now.
Funny is that seaching the DaL folders found another file with the name "poster-Date-a-Live-tsunako.jpg" that's 6meg in size but the quality is still very bad.
I think I saved the already posted pic with that name just to call them different.
DAL Thread Checklist:
☑Date A Stuff http://pastebin.com/c8BsBpbV
☑Origami a shit
☑Tohka a cute
☑Yoshinon is cool
☑Reine best girl
☑Kurumi best girl
☑Kotori best girl
☑Yoshino best girl
☑Tohka best girl
☑Rinne best girl
☑Origami a traitor
I didn't mean any harm. She is a cute doofus.
Way too late.
Not today fatso.
I want more Tohko suffering, she's more interesting when is suffering.
Don't think so.
Shirou is the protagonist from Fate/Stay Night. He's extremely broken person without a sense of self and post other people before himself completely. Shidou is not as extreme, but I get a very similar vibe from him.
The question isn't if he cares, the question is how much more he care about them than a random stranger. The amount of danger he put him self in for someone he just met isn't normal.
Really I think Shirou Δcares more for Sakura than Shidou does for Tohka.
Saying he loves them platonically isn't refuting my point. I never said he wasn't friends with them but that he would risk his life in the same way for a complete stranger.
Better late than never. This thread deserved it.
Shirou is different but Shidou really cares about spirits, it doesn't matter if they want to kill him, he feels it's his duty since he is the only one who can save them.
It was a kiss, a kiss without love but a kiss in the end.
That gif is WAAAAYY too fast.
Since when is the checklist a requirement in DAL threads?
Those huge eyes, I want to lick and fondle them with my tongue.
The whole reason wescott is waiting on the inverse spirit plan is because he wants the bond with shidou to get deeper. What point are you trying to make? That he doesn't love the spirits and only saves them because he wants to save everyone? It's pretty clear that there are feelings there even outside of the more serious moments.
They used to have such a cute relationship, R.I.P. in pieces white Kotori
That's the trend in these last few threads.
When you put it like that I can guarantee you 100% that he cares more about any of them than a random stranger. Shidou didn't want to "save the world" in fact he was kind of lazy. He wouldn't go save a random person captured by DEM. He wouldn't even save a spirit he didn't know without kotori forcing him.
I can't stand this, all this happiness should not be allowed.
What is happiness?
Let it engulf you
>Dat Kazuo reference.
All this love is being wasted in Tohko, other girls need more, too bad Tachibana can't see this.
Bwaka in a tub.
There should never be a limit to happiness
I want to slap that face.
What is Love?
This video explains everything about love
Oh wow, thanks for the heads up
Baby don't hurt me.
>since he is the only one who can save them.
I guess this is another possible explanation
I never denied friendship. And how the spirit feel about Shidou is irrelevant to my argument.
>He wouldn't even save a spirit he didn't know without kotori forcing him.
I call complete bullshit on this.
Can you keep yourself just to Shidou stalking Origami?
This was a good thread.
>Shidou stalking Origami
Why would Shidou do that?
It's not just Tohko, I love when the main girl suffers especially if the main girl is autistic or retarded.
This pic not so much, Kurumi is too fat.
I wounder if it was because the OP open with an interesting question or just because we hadn't had one in a few days.
>we hadn't had one in a few days
What? the previous thread was slow but we always have a new thread.
But I think because of the interesting questions (and later speculah) that got this thread going well.
That said, NepNep threads are at an all-time slow right now
Even if OP question was interesting, the entire thread was about discussion and that's something.
What I mean is he wouldn't save a spirit he didn't know from captivity at DEM unless ordered to do so. He wouldn't. Too much work. in fact, supposedul DEM already had one.. but, He states in 7 clearly that Tohka means too much to him to not do something about it. He even tells miku her sealing will be delayed until he can rescue Tohka. Would he save a random spirit if he was approached by one? yes. He would try. Yet he isn't the only one who wants that. When he lost that drive in the Kurumi arc Tohka told him she didn't want Kurumi or any other spirit to suffer and reminded him that it was important.
The last one was on the 9th.
10th and it lasted through the 11th for over 24 hours.
More like 11th and it was a slow thread, go back to school son.
We need to post this for the time pixel-anon returns.
Holy hell. baka gaijin saimoe update. Yoshino, Kotori, and Kurumi all obliterated their competition.
>NepNep threads are
What do they even talk in those threads? I watched the anime and it was shit.
Rude! Obviously tsunako
DAL stronk but
So... they just circlejerk over the girls? that's sad.
I was marathoning something in my backlog on the 10th. Also it was start on the 9th my time.
>Sun Feb 09 2014 23:12:44
Bwaka is in tomorrow. I'll vote for her too. Keep the DAL stronk going
Your time means shit.
The anime give them a free pass to talk about HDN anything -and- tsunako related stuff.
Asked them and hey basically agree that the anime goes very bad PAST episode 8.
Ah okay. I made the first post in that thread. It was 1 am for me
You should try it. It's fun
It shows this to me.
>Mon Feb 10 2014 03:12:44
Not enough origami in this thread
Can we ask pixel-anon to do Shidou with a sword too?
We have threads like that and they are shit.
Origami a shit.
Poor tohka. I bet she never thought that photo would circulate on the internet.
It seems like that guy only does pixel version of girls.
some tohko for you all
My point was I only look at the day it was started and foolz said it was started on the 9th.
Were do you live?
Clearly it's the atlantic ocean
Let's try to go on a Speculah rampage next time Origami Bro.
To be fair shido was only supposed to look at it in private. easy to forget to check your pockets sometimes.
Not gonna tell you.
Ya don't tell him. I made a mistake telling people where I lived and was bullied as a result
Why are you spamming Tohko now?
>>tfw I read Shidou instead of Shirori...
Must try asking anyway.
Because you were retard enough to tell us.
End of the thread.
I bet you're that kilt wearing faggot bump spammer from edinburgh

Is it really necessary?
The thread was dead though
Can it be a <Ruler> finish?
The Tohka bullying is stronger when the thread is dying retard.
People want that last post for some reason.
Kurumi thread needs a Kurumi end.
Miku is best girl.
The usual miku is best girl guy isn't here though. Neither is the origami is best guy who tries for bump limit and end of threads.
This thread was more about speculah than Kurumi though.
Reading the original manga.
This art style really grew on me...
I spoke too soon I see
Oh the irony.
Got to agree there.
Thread is about to die just like Kurumi.
>all that Tohka
>all that Kotori
Origami a shit.
>the lack of Yoshino
It's not good at all.
I liked this art too.
Mana is the true end
She's a loser.
ur a loser.
Mana end confirmed.
Origami will lose, hurray!
Uh? The archive does not catch the very last posts or something? There was a Kurumi pic right there!
Sometimes it will miss the last post or even last few yes
Yeah sometimes it won't get it. doesn't mean it didn't happen, I believe you. It's happened to me before.
No it was origami ;)
come join this. It's very sad without members
