Is this going to get a second season when the manga finishes, or did they close that door already? I really liked it. How did it do on sales?
No. The director straight out said it was never going to be more then one season. Almost all adaptations are just commercials for the source material and should be treated as such.
I actually liked it too.
I know it's supposed to be a comedy, but they sort of really glossed over the fact that Shuu thought he was raped, especially when his reasons for being a virgin were embedded in trauma
>How did it do on sales?
I'm pretty sure rather terribly.
Did most of /a/ like it? I didn't pay attention when it was airing.
thank fucking God
By the time the show ended it had gone from pretty good to more hard to watch than a geriatric orgy.
Shuu is 10/10 husbando material
I was surprised that there were jellyfish with such thick tentacles irl. I thought it was just a design choice to make it look cuter
The author was actually into Jellyfish and the director of the show once owned a jellyfish themed bar ( somehow magically).
Probably about as well as Aoi Hana.
rewatching anime confirms this.
I can't stand him.
He reminds me too much of my own failing.
tracksuit is my waifu before and after
Did you have your own Tsukimi?
fuck you, mayaya the best
Amars Tier List
old men plz go
Shuu never wanted to be with Mayaya
Most of /a/ didn't care, but the weekly thread were cosy as fuck.
Because his taste is bad. Mayaya is the best.
are you the guy who related to Shuu? that's why I asked
can we all agree Shoko is shit-washed-up-on-the-shore tier?
pic related, best girls
So /a/, Shuu or Kuranosuke?
It's hard for me to choose, but after seeing that Kuranosuke's fixation with Tsukimi comes from somehow relating his relationship to him as his relationship to his mom, then I'm going for Shuu. Plus there is the ring he bought.
Both of those guys are nuts.
Hanamori is the best.
But he's never going to win the Tsukimibowl.
Now the Mayaya-bowl...
I think Shuu probably doesn't see it that way (because he's naive enough to go for the "take responsibility" trap and doesn't realize that he couldn't really have consented) but yeah, that's pretty messed up. I hadn't really considered how much worse it is when you remember the trauma aspect. It's played for laughs, but nobody does therapy in Japan so that actually could have done some lasting damage.
Shuu has been adorable this whole time
Kuranosuke only realized he wanted Tsukimi after getting strangely jealous seeing her with Shuu
But I have a feeling that, with the formula shojo manga usually follows, Kuranosuke is going to win
That's how I would feel too, but the whole thing with Kuranosuke and his mom... just strikes me as if the author is going to pull a curve ball on us.
Speaking of her, did you guys read the latest extra? Why is she so adorable?
Honestly, I would pick Shuu. Too damn cute for me to not want to choose him.
But the crossdressing bro is going to win.
there was a point right after he got home where Kuranosuke said he looked like he'd been molested, and he said "I guess I have"
but you're right, the rest of the time, he treats it like he should take responsibility. he might have blocked that realization out
Shuu is a great guy, but I feel like Kuranosuke will end up with Tsukimi. He's the better match.
Shuu/Tsukimi is adorable, but they only really magnify each other's (admittedly adorable) flaws. Kuranosuke and Tsukimi bring something better (kindness and ambition, respectively) in each other.
I felt a twinge of sadness when I read she got divorced. I imagined her living happily, her, her son, her husband sweetly putting up with her jellyfish obsession, and her jellyfish
Damn you for making a good point!
Shuu is just too cute to end up with that molester office woman.
He'd better goddamn not. I will be hella pissed. I will be hella pissed if Shuu gets his heart broken and has to settle for that rotten christmas cake
From a writing perspective, it's also the better option. More dramatic potential in both of those relationships than in Shuu/Tsukimi, because that doesn't really provide a way for their characters to develop.
I feel like it's headed in that direction, but yeah, the author's going to have to put in some hard work to make that play out
Are there shojo manga where the second guy wins? I know the opposite is true in western chick flicks--the second guy always wins--but in shojo manga it seems like the first guy we see is always going to be the winner
But I guess it all turned out for the best. The new guy seems suitably adorable.
The idea that there is one makes me laugh.
>Now the Mayaya-bowl...
Tonari no Atashi is the one that comes to mind. I was pleasantly surprised by who the MC ended up with.
>first time I'd seen him without his hat on
author fell for a fedora
>I felt a twinge of sadness when I read she got divorced.
What? Okay. I'll return later guys. I gotta go to Japan and stalk an author now.
Are you dissing Tsukimi, anon?
She doesn't sell herself at the price of capsule toys.
Looks more like a bowler hat.
>People like Shuu
I-I thought I was the only one ;_;
>Anyone not liking Shuu
Why? Kuranosuke is kind of a dick.
Kuranosuke is obnoxious, but he has some good moments.
Shuu is husbando tier though
>She doesn't sell herself at the price of capsule toys.
Yeah, I know. What an expensive stuck up bitch.
meant to reply to
>He likes cheap women.
I guess so.
It's how pushy he is, and how in the recent chapter he yells at Shuu because he didn't see Tsukimi leave the building.
Anyone else think the Amars not caring for Tsukimi's sarifice was out of the left field? I thought they'd at least care a little bit, not throw a feast.
I'd put doll girl Nomu in second just because I want to show her how good real people can be.
it would have been if they hadn't grown so much since the first few chapters
if this had happened in chapter 5, I would say no, it wasn't out of character at all
but yes, it's totally out of character now
They can kind of be dicks.
But I guess it makes sense, in a way. When you get down to it, they're afraid of conflict or anything that could upset their current way of life, so the joy of being able to stay in their building is (for the time being) outweighing their feelings for Tsukimi.
It made me rage a little bit. I know Mayaya is the biggest dick, but Chieko or the doll-girl could've been more outraged.
I feel like the character development in this series for a lot of the characters goes one step forwards and two steps back.
Tsukimi is improving every issue, though.
I can't wait to see the resolution for the new storyline... I kinda want her to go to Korea and just become a damn designer already.
>nomu (doll girl)
the girl who literally refers to people as worms? amars included? like hell. worst girl
She was the first one to get sad when she saw Amamizukan was getting sold at last, though.
Oh, I also forgot about Jiji. She was also disappointing.
Sensei is best girl. She always has something practical to say.
Hirunaka no Ryuusei has the 2nd guy currently "winning"/dating the girl. From the way the mangaka has set it up I wouldn't be surprised if he gets the girl in the end, since it's apparently ending in less than 20 chapters.
Brocon is one of them. Neither of the poster boys win, nor does the most popular (also best) boy win either.
It's like the author decided that she wanted to go for a twist ending where the guy who wasn't even around won. He even had a shit reason for falling in love with her.
are we ever going to see what she looks like, or is it going to be a mystery forever?
my theory is that she's been a man this whole time
>my theory is that she's been a man this whole time
But Chieko has seen her before, and I think maybe some of the other women claimed to as well. Although I guess she could still be a man and they didn't notice.
I thought /a/ loved the ED.
Kuranosuke was with her from the first moment. He is the one who loves the fujoshi jellyfish princess, rather than the dolled up version.
I heard it did badly on sales, but there is still the manga to read.
I kind of wished it stayed more of a slice of life with the forever alone girls.
Jellyfishchan> Trainchan > Graverobberchan> RTKchan > Dollchan
About how old are the women supposed to be? Banba looks like a loli, but she is just short, and Tsukimi looks like a teenager, but she is apparently old enough to be living on her own.
Tsukimi is the youngest. She's like 19 or 20 or something and perusing life as an artist in the big city. Or was she 18? Anyway she's young.
Most of the other girls are in their 30s.
Graverobberchan and Genshicute would be great friends. Or lovers.
