Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta/The Pilot's Love Song episode 7
2 mins to go
Good bye fatty
There's already a thread.
fatty won't be missed
No ;_; It's suppose to be Nina Viento not the lovely couple.
Fuck you /a/ it's 8am and now today's episode is fucked for me :'(
Shit, which one should we use?
Haha, time for death and destruction.
This is going to be fun.
So the enemy is using flying carrier, I like this sky clan, even if their carrier look retarded.
Ere we go, ere we go.
This is PJ all over again.
Why do the good die young?
Fatty is actually pretty cool ;_;7
WHAT IF NEXT FUCKING TIME YOU GIVE THEM SOMETHING THAT ISN'T A FUCKING CARBINE FUCKING FUCK FUCKS I FUCKING HATE EVERYTHING
I want glorious aerial combat without suffering damnit.
For an unknown reason, CR listed that the simulcast today at 10 pm PST on their schedule (15 hours late than before)
I wonder if it's a mistake or something.
I don't think it would've made much difference.
It's only gonna get worse isn't it?
Look at this smug motherfucker, he need to be punch already.
Wait, they're still using carbine in battle? I thought they would've atleast replaced those with machine guns seen on the Knight's machine.
Rest in pieces, fatty.
Place your bets, how many people will be left alive by the end of the series.
I think i saw imouto get hit in the preview
Did you see those mad skills dodging the enemy fire and shit? They could have pulled it off, or at least keep the enemy at a distance until the Knights arrived, but no apparently MG are worth more than trained pilots now.
I hope it's only just a mistake.
2 MC and Claire
Maybe Imouto as a cripple
fuck yeah, roasted pork!
I'll rage if they hurt imouto no kuse ni.
He didn't even get to buy flowers.
>just send students to scout the enemy
best idea ever, gg
at least four, I mean 5, including that fucking smug motherfucker that we all want to die but won't even if he's killed.
Or the enemy just suck at aiming, still anything would've worked better than a carbine.
Too soon, way too soon.
So, Mitty bite the dust...
Did he manage to make Chiharu bail out?
>...one of them being being a fatass unfit for duty, especially in fighter plane, where turn fighting and high G pull are contradictory with unfitness.
WHAT COULD GO WRONG?
Yeah, Knights caught her while she was falling.
And PJ didn't get to hold hand with his fiance, so it's balance.
Yes, the instructors show up and catch her in time.
Yes, look at >>102248120
It's the moment before she left the plane.
It's like sending those cheap low level unit on a scouting run that they probably won't return from.
I'm so fucking mad that they give the students a fucking RIFLE to shoot stuff, not even a machine gun.
I really am glad that Fire Emblem has no fog of war.
The he went out as a true hero. I wonder how Claire/Nina will react to the Counsil after this fiasco?
Oh, and here's the next episode's name: The Bird's Name. I bet that it'll be about Superman discovering NINA VIENTO's true identity.
too late, you only save one student
You know what's an even better idea? Leaving the turret exposed, at least add a shield around the gun
The suffering train has no brakes, not that we need any
No, it will probably be another slice of life filler episode.
>Fire Emblem with Fog of War
Oh fuck no, it's already bad enough with having my cavalary running all over the map to hunt for those magic users in seperate corners. If I have to find them aswell it'll be hell.
Atleast he tried.
I agree, the turret should have more cover than that. Hell, even their bomber have fully covered cockpit, why not the fighter.
But there are people getting shot in the preview.
To be honest that is a bit more realistic, the first models of warplanes didn't have any kind of shielding on the co-pilot's seat since they were only used for scouting.
I guess all the shitty planes they use are intended for scouting, and the ones the Knights use are proper fighters.
Right after someone just died? That'll be a bit strange.
Was last episode the most obvious deathflag ever?
The Knights plane just have better looking cockpit and machine guns, that's about it.
Alright let's place bets on how will this thing fuck stuff up
I can't remember when was the last time I saw half an episode being a deathflag, and the first half of this one too.
That is retarded on many levels.
Well on a second look, it also have retractable landing gear and what seem to be a better engine.
Also I think the machine gun use on there is Lewis gun without the cooling shroud.
I think a lot of WW2 bombers are like that.
jet turbines m8
Speaking of bombers, these are fucking awesome. So those enemy fighters in the first episode really do belong to the Sky Clan.
FUCK I MISSED IT. We'll never forget you fatty.
Aye, I didn't see that the first time, my mistake.
Looking a bit NINA VIENTO there yourself, imouto
This is what happens when you call her an imouto.
The drum on top of the gun reminds me of Valkyria Chronicles 2' machine gun.
I'm just trying not to get my hopes up too high.
Futaba seems to really like the ED.
I wasn't a fan at first, but it's grown on me.
She's gonna be in a deep depression isn't she? Mitty was basically her support beam.
She seems more the type to put on a genki facade to me.
Yeah there is that but without Mitty there to comfort her like he did in the last episode, I have a feeling she won't be able keep it up for long, if at all since it's so much more severe.
Fuck you, I laughed.
Remember when fatso said nobody is going home? Yeah.
So why the fuck are they sending pilots in training on shitty trainer planes with what seems like training carbines to scout?
Also in case anybody wants to know they are using Bristol Jupiter III engines(thanks for that fatty) which are from 1923 while the knights are using jet engines which started being used in 1944.
The machine gun could also be a Vickers.
Isn't the aircraft version of Vickers much more thinner and narrower?
Subs late today?
Everything is NINA VIENTO's fault.
Looks like it they're usually really quick with PLS.
Finding good photos of them is hard, this is what the Vickers is supposed to look like.
Jet engines are more suitable for high altitude cruising while prop is more suitable for lower altitudes. They don't have FLIR or any of those fancy sensor pods so they need to rely on eyes only. Or they simply don't have enough jets to go around, a lot of countries use their old combat fighters as trainers anyway.
And here is the Lewis Gun.
Not really sure how trustworthy these reproductions are.
My problem is not with them using old combat fighters as trainers, but it is with them actually sending it to scout the enemy.
Trainers are either fighters that are deemed not good enough to use on a real battlefield or aircraft that is made specially for training.
But maybe they literally have no other planes, which would not be that weird considering the nature of their mission.
I'm still leaning toward them being the Lewis, the Vicker aircraft variant's grip and trigger is at the butt of the gun afterall.
Aye, they have very limited resources afterall, need to make do with what you have. Wonder if the floating island have a factory of some sort, it seem to be self substainable.
The island probably can sustain it's small population, but not a military. Metals are probably scarce since mining would be very difficult.
>build a mine on Isla
>fall through the bottom
>Delay in subs.
Of all the weeks why now HS, They sure are taking there time about Kal El still not knowing he is best friends with NINA VIENTO.
Really good plumbing I guess
They dug too greedily and too deep.
Jokes aside, what would worry me more is the island breaking into smaller bits.
Not to mention mining the place out, leaving a vast network of tunnels all over the island, making it very vulnerable to enemy fire. Like Swiss Cheese.
So I've finished Remembrance of a Pilot yesterday and it was a bit disappointing how little it had to do with this show (being a spin-off and all), I was hoping to get some more world building out of it, but it didn't have any of the magic stuff from this show.
Tell me, LN fags, will this ride be a good one?
How does the island even stay afloat, it would be nice if they can seperate some part of the island out like the part with fortifications and so on.
>How does the island even stay afloat
Either pic or uchuujin.
>Tell me, LN fags, will this ride be a good one?
Did I say something funny?
Prepare for a bullshit no conclusion open end. You know, the awesome kind where no questions get answered.
>implying we won't get an anime original ending
There are only going to be 12 episodes
It is unlikely we are getting a decent ending.
It better not be the IS NINA VIENTO DEAD OR NOT? questions, She better fucking die.
I'll be okay with a less half-assed ending.
Can't say I wasn't expecting this after reading Remembrance of a Pilot. It can't be helped.
Why CR so late today?
I fucking hate you CR.
Are you shitting me? Oh well, I guess that means Commie will be out when I woke up tomorrow.
Do I have to take it raw or something?
I'm sure you like to take it raw, anon.
>One of the most emotive episodes
>Still no subs
Am I supposed to care if that fat shit actually dies?
After having him and the brown slut force fed to me in the last episode, I honestly couldn't give a shit what happens to them. No, in fact I want them to die so I don't have to put up with their shit any more.
If a little kid can summon a tornado and destroy a village an island floating isn't a big deal, I wounder if kal el have some magic too.
So did L-Elf do anything this episode?
CR delayed it bro, Commie will probably be the first one to sub it.
He's a bro who spent time with his girl and didn't mean any harm, Why would you want him to die.
>Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta
What is this? I don't ever remember hearing or seeing anything about this before.
Anon, I'm aware of the fact we're only five guys watching it, but that's just mean.
I've seriously never seen a thread for this before or even heard of it. I do think I saw a picture of it once before a long time ago before this season started.
Now now, since it is in a series I suppose we have a few more than that, not to mention that name might've attracted some attention, and I'm almost sure Z/X is the least watched show this season and even then I could count maybe 7 other people watching it.
Ahh, it's a romance. No wonder I didn't look more into it. Carry on.
Do you never browse /a/ on Mondays or anything? There's a thread every single week.
It's also warplanes fighting and lots of suffering.
Idk usually if there is romance in an anime it kind of ruins it. Since everything is so focused towards it.
Well this romance involves two people with secret identities- one knows (or at least has a pretty good idea). The other wants to kill the alternate persona of the girl but has no idea.
Are the subs delayed?
RIP Mit-chan. You now have set the pacing till the end.
By a lot it seems, we aren't getting subs until the night.
Is the show not airing today or something? Haven't seen subs.
cr simulcast delayed 12h
Redefining the word "simulcast" are they? They're doing the same thing with SYD.
I see, thanks. Pretty lame though, they chose the worst time to delay it, I'm in suspense here.
I hope the big tall guy to live but i get this feeling he is going to die protecting everyone
He seems like the biggest bro, I can't see him surviving.
it felt like an eternity
>Commie will probably be the first one to sub it.
Only if they decided to translate this episode themselves, their releases before is just CR edit.
That aside, it seems HS hasn't re-scheduled their ripper for this.
subs fucking when?
Bump, for NINA VIENTO
According to CR schedule now, it is about 5 more hours from now.
Commie, hurry the fuck up.
They won't make an original translation dude, I highly doubt so.
Oh, I just realised horrible had nothing up. The fuck.
For unknown reason, CR is going to simulcast this episode 15 hours late than before.
I wonder if this schedule change is permanent.
Rear gunner, flex mounts are the main weapons.
Should I watch this? And why? OP'spic made me curious.
Nah, it's just about some overthrown prince out for revenge and sex.
Is it well done?
No, he fails at every aspect. Don't watch it. I beseech you to not watch it. Don't, really.
I think over two more hours.
Don't bother, he suffers from premature ejaculation.
The art looks appealing though.
There's nothing appealing about choke play.
Fuck I'm falling asleep already, oh well I guess I'll have Commie when I wake up tomorrow.
>still no subs
There's a lot of wasted potential. The setup is compelling enough, the writers (either the LN author or studio screenwriters) just don't know how to capitalize on it.
There is still time to save it though. I hope to hell they do.
I like it.
Now I'm really hoping that cypher will come out and save the day like he did in the belkan war!!
That fucking cock block from the teacher was horrible.
Looks like it's out on CR. Though for some reason, it is still listed at to be simulcasted at 10 pm PST on their schedule.
Apparently they removed it for now and it is listed to be simulcast in about 2 hours from now.
I guess the early simulcast was a mistake or something.
I thought the point of a simulcast was to simultaneously cast it at the same time as Japan?
What I mean by the "early simulcast" in that post is CR releasing it about 2 hours than what was scheduled today and since they took the episode down, it seems that was mistake or something.
>10 pm PST
Ok, then. 1 more hour.
>already past 10
Looks like it's up on CR.
Did HS knew about the schedule being changed?
holy SFW batman?
fuck it I'll watch it tomorrow
Good night, anon.
I hate CR.
Dammmit, why does CR have to be slow the episode where the death and destruction begin.
It's a conspiracy so we have to go and watch it on their shitty website!
c'mon i liked the couple
>Did HS knew about the schedule being changed?
Considering the schedule on their site still listed this at 07:00 PST, I'm going to assume they don't know.
Now just waiting for this.
>[HorribleSubs] The Pilot's Love Song - 07 [720p].mkv
Toaru hikuushi e no naku koro ni.
hahaha time for suffering
Is Wolfgang next?
>Say imouto again
God damn this was sad as fuck, I nearly became a shriveling baby after watching this.
Please no more ;_;
Jesus Christ this hit me too hard and the suffering is only gonna get worse, without a doubt. Don't think I can do this.
She won't die but she won't fly again either. Why was the preview in an odd order, because we see her hurt before we see her shouting and shooting.
so who is next up for dying?
The moment the anime spends the majority of the time on a side character, that pretty much seals their fate.
The next side character gets a bunch of screentime
I don't know shit about planes, but they are trainees in their old shit against what looks really modern. So, I guess, everyone.
I consider myself easy when it comes to getting a person to cry, but Micchan dying didn't really do much for me.
I don't know if they could have made it more dramatic or glorious as the episode title stated but the whole scene just feels with lack of a better description, just not very emotional.
Anyone else feel this way?
I mean they even desensitized you with all the obvious deathflags as well.
On the word Escorial mentioned on this episode: Escorial is the Spanish word for the location in which the waste produced from metalworking and smelting is stored in.
The word derives from the Latin word scoria which mean waste/filth.
Holy shit I bitch tears'd pretty hard.
Mitty is a true hero. Lighting up the enemy in a battle-winning move of complete self-sacrifice, before making sure his waifu would live and dying in her stead.
A true hero. A true human bean.
There is no battle without suffering.
I kek'd at your edit of that scene.
This is all Nina Viento's fault.
Can anyone help me find a torrent for The Princess and the Pilot, baka banned all theirs
>from the land of Ju-Ha-Kyu where they don't consider a conclusion necessary for an ending
Is Airi next to die? In the preview she was shot and looked very badly hurt and bleeding a lot.
What? Bakabt work fine for me.
She'll be useless for the rest of the show and we'll have to deal with all the drama that comes with it.
I think it's because we knew it would happen and we were happy for him. I mean, it sucks that he died, but it wasn't sudden and it wasn't very drawn out. He saw a chance to save a lot of lives, he took it, and he didn't make it out, but he was okay with that, and so was I.
Please no ;_;
Who's going to make the good food from now on? The ramen?
I'm still waiting for Ari and Igna OTP.
its blacklisted now ;_;
You can prepared food on a wheelchair actually.
Anyway goddamitt, that unnecessary sacrifice for muh drama was a BAD touch in a good series.
I thought she was gonna die as well.
That would have been horrible.
Take this. http://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=516346
You can't chuck ramen over your shoulder when it has a bullet in it.
If she died she would have been with her husbando. Now she's going to live with the trauma of seeing him blow up in her face.
The shoulder, not the ramen.
Ya know even though he is a massive dick it is nice to see that he's manning the fuck up.
I fully expect him to die next episode after he does some hero mode shit.
>implying he didnt shoot superman's planes just for giggles in that scene
WHY ARE THEY USING CARBINE RIFLES
ON A PLANE
Because machine guns are for knights only.
The kids weren't expected to be in combat anyway. They had the carbines for practice so when they got machine guns they could shoot straight. I have no idea what they were planning to put the recruits in.
No idea, I'm actually going to be mad if one of them actually gets a kill.
What's even more pathetic is that the actual fighters don't have any fixed weapons. A fucking ring mount, are you bloody serious.
The council of four knew they were expecting opposition, it's not hard at all to put some ring mounts on.
But pilots are limited meanwhile machine guns can be replaced.
I hope Germany/Scotland wins. Isla's planes are pants on head retarded.
Christ, the animation this episode was awful. Did they really waste all their budget on the last six episodes of pilot school hijinks?
Maybe they're saving budget for HQ NINA VIENTO
And the gunner position doesn't even have any cover, amazing design.
I love how Scotland have a flying aircraft carrier and awesome looking bombers, they're proto-Belka, aren't they.
The mechanical animation wasn't detailed but it had some shots of decent effects animation.
Why didn't they attack Isla planes? They couldn't have not seen them, they had all their fucking lights on.
Get this, he's also standing, not seated, standing. You can't do any hard manoeuvres and any attempts to be accurate needs the plane to be levelled otherwise he has to hold on to something (can't use the gun, ring mount).
You have to be in close for the machine guns, there was no long range 'torpedo' salvo for them.
Why was Sonia aiming a gun at Bandereas? Did I miss something.
I hope no more deaths apart from NINA VIENTO.
I hope Wolfgang isn't next ;_;
And there's no rope or any sort of strap that would hold the gunner on the plane either, so the gunner have to both look for the enemy, control the weapon, and make sure that he doesn't fall off the fucking plane in case of risky manoeuvres.
They obviously haven't thought this one out very well. It seems that the home country - three countries united? how? - thinks of this mission as a way to get rid of undesirables. If they actually do make it to Tir-Na-Nog, to the end of the rainbow or whatever, that would be cool, but they were sent out to die. You get rid of the nobility, you get rid of your wind mage, you get rid of your knightly order.
They don't have radios and telegraphy is the main form of communication.
There's strap in, you see it in action when Mitt gets shot but it wouldn't stabilise you in any manner.
>Fire Emblem Awakening has no fog of war.
Ah, haven't seen the episode yet so I didn't know that, well that's one fear out of the way.
WHY DIDN'T YOU DUCK?
He had the chance to jump out too. Easily.
I wouldn't be surprised if he fucking survived. I hope he didn't, but hey.
Also, jumping out that close to the propeller was retarded.
Could they not be anymore obvious with the title? At least name it something more vague like Flame in the Sky or Burning Passion.
She didn't jump, he pushed her, towards the propeller.
Right, right. It was retarded either way.
They're a floating island with no industry to speak of but a surpluss population, they can find a trainee pilot far easier than build a new manchine gun.
Just finished the episode, this episode have a rather large quantity of QUALITY than the others. Really loving those flying ships, the enemy's old wooden carrier look a lot better than their modern one though.
Any request for gif, stitches, or transparent?
He had a bullet in his chest and someone needed to distract the enemy fighters for a few moments, they very nearly were in time to kill her as it was.
The part when Mitty's plane blows up.
They'll fix it in the BDs, r-right?
Here is the strap.
I'm not sure were it's attached to the plane since after Mitty gets shot the strap is floating while he spins.
Surely, I want to witness the aerial combat and aircrafts in full glory.
I guess I missed it completely, do a gif of him getting shot in the belly.
Actually they must have since they have an escorial >>102296298
It was his belly (painful as fuck), but yes, pretty much.
I think he still could have maybe clambered out. He had a good five seconds even after his plane was hit. Not saying it would be easy, but it was possible.
If you want to (understandably) say it was impossible to climb out, he could have thought ahead and flipped the plane whilst he was in that last climb, and dropped out just before/just after his plane was hit.
It just felt like he didn't use all his options.
I'm glad he's dead. It was about time something actually happened.
I'm glad she survived, too. It was the best scenario.
>flipped the plane
I don't think this plane was made with any flipping in mind, it would probably split in two the wings or the whole plane.
He could have scored delicious brown, he could have made the fat man proud.
That really doesn't look like it could hold much.
Oh man, that's perfect. He died for our entertainment.
Perhaps. But it's not like the well-being of the plane should have been his top priority.
Regardless, he'd only have to tilt it 90 degrees and he'd be golden. Even 45 degrees would have made climbing out significantly easier, and we've sure as hell seen the planes do at least 60 degrees.
This ep made want to play warthunder
I want to see a doujin where she starts slutting around with muscular gypsy men to relieve the pain of his death. But unbeknownst to her, he survived, and he walks in her room to surprise her, with a smile on his face, holding a bunch of flowers, and then he sees her getting pounded with a look of ecstasy on her face. She's shocked, but the huge dick inside her just feels too good, so she can't bring herself to stop, and then he starts crying.
Fat people getting NTR'd is the best.
nah man, nah
If he bled alpha, the plane would've been shot.
He knew his wound was lethal and decided to distract the other planes.
You're the worst.
or you saw the english name of the pliots love song
I dropped this show because of that one single scene. For some reason it scared the shit out of me and I couldn't stop thinking about it.
NINA VIENTO pls.
I'm somewhat upset that he didn't confess to her. It's MJP all over again.
Go away, NINA VIENTO.
Those are the best parts you fool. Unless Kal is thinking about killing Nino Viento or defending Claire from would be suitors, Kal is a major dork.
After all the set up from the last few episodes the war finally begun and we got an entertaining episode. I wonder how long it'll take for Claire to get her powers back and save Superman's life with them.
Does this actually play into the plot later?
I would NINA her VIENTO.
Aren't those the bullets he didn't use in the training? Or am I remembering wrong?
One for NINA VIENTO and the other for himself perhaps?
FORESHADOWING, it seems like it or it can be an interpretation of his resistance to fight. Maybe.
It seems liek Nina's name should actually be Niña del Viento (Child of the wind) but Japan can't into foreign languages
>rifle to the head
That's pretty overkill.
Doubt so, the spanish we've seen so far has been top notch.
Yes they are, good job.
Author choosing the name could be a lot different to an animator copying an actual Spanish manual or using common phrases.
I thought of that right after I clicked "Submit".
It just want to make me play some WWII flight sim game, I need to find some new one, been bleeding Battlestation: Pacific dry.
Well it work, can't be too sure with NINA VIENTO.
I think I'm going mad. I swear I could see the gun and his arm moving in slow motion.
I was watching that picture for a good twelve seconds, thinking I was watching a gif.
Sage for blog.
No such thing as too much dakka.
odds he comes back and be like
lol i troll u i'm le master trickster le bad writing face.
Go to sleep, anon. Stop before you start hallucinating even more.
No such thing indeed, can't wait for the enemy to roll the Sekret Weapon.
I wonder how many guns will the flying fortress of doom have.
Also, I'd give it a fair chance. Say, 10% or so. It seems like this might be that kind of show.
No, he's dead for good. Expect more.
Looking forward to watching this episode when I wake up, starting my morning with plenty of healing.
Holy crap me too. I think it's a combination of the low resolution and the shadows that trick the mind into thinking it's a gif.
I wasn't being ironic, I was being serious.
I wonder why the author chose the name "Kal-El Albus" for the MC. It's so quaint and unusual that it just seems unlikely he was unaware that it's basically Superman Dumbledore.
Here's what you meant to say:
"Odds are, he comes back later in the anime because of bad writing."
Next time, please be sure to write like a civilized human being and not a /v/ermin so that you don't unintentionally shitpost!
Remember, "epic may mays" should remain on /v/, /b/, etc.!
Ouch. She won't be using that arm again properly.
>No more Ari-men.
Maybe he was writing like a retard in order to criticize the bad writing in a creative and shocking way.
There's nothing creative or shocking about being retarded.
It's hardly creative and shocking, and even if we grant him the fact that it might be, as you say, it's still writing like a retard. All that accomplishes is that it invites other people to genuinely act retarded on /a/. Shitposting is always shitposting, sage for meta shit
So ironic shitposting then?
Says the guy pointing out shit posting.
You're making matters worse babe.
Okay, but what if he legitimately thought that ironic shitposting was fine? If that was the case, which it is if we take him at his word, then by explaining why what he did wasn't good, we've prevented it from happening in the future, which means we've made things better.
So how did those guys get such advanced technology?
There must be land beyond the big watery spring of mystery, right? But then why do they talk virtually the same language? Nobody knew they even existed outside of myth.
Is it a conspiracy?
I have a theory that the guys in the metal ships are people from the land beyond the spring and have kicked the ass of the Sky Clan, the shitty wooden ships we saw are the survivors from the Sky Clan which the metal ship people are using as cannon fodder.
Also do they talk the same language? When did they say that?
They're people who left previously, hence some prior knowledge about them. The central government sent Isla to explore (read exile) because they're a problem hoping the Sky Clan will take care of them.
No, the wooden planes were just older models and recce planes used as a ruse as to hide they're true capabilities. Amelia, the foreign minister notes that the POWs language hails from the same linguistic family.
Oh no... I don't like where this is going. Is injured imouto going to overshadow NINA VIENTO angst?
I hope not.
It is a little sad to realize that the main reason I want ari to be okay is so that Kal can still be focused entirely on his hatred for Nina when the time comes (and it had better come soon).
Has Fausto decided to stop being a wanker?
Maybe if he survive next episode.
I hope the Central Government doesn't have planes as shitty as what Isla uses.
Would they really send that many people to die just to try to trick them? It's not like they couldn't have sneaked up on them and destroyed the island defenses before they had time to react, their technology seems way ahead of anything Isla have.
Also I had forgotten about that, but the term she uses is linguistic system which is very different from a linguistic family.
If anything, Fausto will die in the last two episodes but I doubt so.
The explosion was nicely done I believe all the episode's budget was focused there.
Give the filename a PJ joke
Don't think his type of character can ever stop being a wanker unless he got Claire Cruz.
There's not many joke you can make with PJ. Maybe >>102248334
I love how her eyes tremble a tiny bit, how cute.
She truly believed Mitty would jump as well ;_;
Godamn this ride, I expected Friendship and happiness.
I'm sure you knew very well that things wouldn't go that way after the very first scene.
And the Op don't forget the Op.
>A Glorious Death
>I-I expected happiness
I'm mad because of how good this show could have been. It's just embarrassing itself now.
>that ridiculously colorful rainbow in the OP.
This show doesn't know what it wants to be.
I hope NINA VIENTO will get her powers back and wreck the Sky Clan.
Ari's arm got a big bullet hole in the preview .Hopefully she doesn't die ;_;.
it's an adaptation so I blame the author
I bet something happened like "I want to write about planes" "Nah I want to want about romance"
"That's it I'm doing both"
Oh no, i want to see Ignacio getting that ramen pussy
She's alive, went on to be a mechanic instead, and lost the Supermanowl anyway.
It's a shame, this could have been great if it was 2 cour it needs more romance for my tastes.
They could have evaded the enemy planes for longer if her wasn't so fat.
Mitty killed himself. He deserved it.
Germany is behind the Sky Clan.
Mitty is not fat, he just has big bones!
Easier to find, I guess.
Mitty isn't fat anymore, he's really burned away the pounds lately.
That's true, he's smoking hot now.
It's the result of all that crash dieting
He's really exploded on to the exercise scene, yeah.
Okay this is it, too soon, I wonder will the later ones be as breathtaking as this one
Oh, you guys.
It will take away breaths alright.
Ribs in peace, Porky. ;_;7
I fucking knew this would happen.
Competent writers and directors could make even mediocre source material good.
Why aren't we talking about the return of the true ace?
You guys are monsters, Mitty was a true bro who died for his woman.
He's got no cover too with Ari being shot. Gonna be interesting to see how he get's out of that tight spot. NINA VIENTO could even possibly give him a hand
When will they let Ignacio finish his rant?
In episode 12, announcing the second season.
When he is about to die
What is this show selling by the way? The blu-rays are not even available in Amazon.
Who's talking about Superman Dumbledore? I was referring to the dude in the blue Hurricane-Mustang hybrid
Oh yeah now Ignacio knows who Claire is doesn't he?
This can only end well.
I think he knows from the beginning, he's supposed to her bodyguard.
Oh, that makes sense.
Ignacio will never finish his rant, nor will he ever be taken seriously.
in gundam almost every pilot die like this but even worse.
mecha anime do not show usually show pilots' dying moments except muv luv
>This is fine. I am okay with the events that are occurring.
The best deaths in mabu ravu are the ones with just the screams.
These sons of bitches better not kill literally the only character I like from this show. ;_;
>mfw fatty died
This show is just going to get more sadder isnt it?
Bitch knew fatboi will sacrifice himself for her. Bitches. And Whores.
You better keep your word, you fat piece of shit.
oh baby aren't you in for a surprise
Get the 720p release.
Take screenshots in JPG.
I should have said just sadder? Sorry english isnt my first language please forgive me /a/ I wont make mistakes anymore.
It's either one. Sadder or more sad.
Pretty cool for a fat piece of shit.
I underestimated you. ;_;
Stop bullying him!
He was a fat bastard until the very end, but at least he kept his word.
He will not be missed.
Just let him watch his "1080p" if he wants to. It isnt the end of the world.
anyone noticed than on 1 ep the one maning the gun on kal-el plane is ignacio?
I'm pretty sure HS 1080 is just upscalling, but what about other eries, does any of them actually air in 1080.
He may as well be, he's her bodyguard after all.
Not this season.
the sky clan has their own flying island
1080 is only worth it for bd releases.
Nice one anon.
It's not like he needed to. They were obviously both in love with each other. They were basically a couple.
why would you show this shit in a preview? what the fuck?
Because she won't die.
At least she is pregnant.
>worse case scenario, 1080p looks exactly the same as 720p
>best case scenario, 1080p looks slightly better than 720p
Since I have a 1920x1080 monitor, decent storage, and decent internet; there is absolutely no reason for me to download 720p.
Deal with it however you must.
sure, but there is still no reason to show something like that in a preview. something like that should be surprising/shocking when it happens
1080p is an upscale when it comes to TV releases. If you're downloading a BD rip it's a different story, but a 1080p upscale will almost always look worse than a 720p release.
it taking longer to download should be enough reason. for tv releases 1080p are ALL upscales, so you're wasting your time. there is no 'best case scenario, it looks better' because it will never look better
That doesn't seem to be the case with this show. Instead, it looks like the 720p version has slightly blurrier lines and slightly less detail in dark areas.
I can wait 45 seconds longer or so to watch a >20 minute show that looks a bit better.
>720p version has slightly blurrier lines and slightly less detail in dark areas.
Post processing. And post processing + upscaling before before encoding will rarely look better than post processing + upscaling after decoding.
I see. Well this seems like one of those rare cases.
In general your computer is better at upscaling than most encodes. If it looks worse then you probably need to mess with your settings.
Who knows, maybe this show is made with a lot of pixels. I forget the blog that analyzes that sort of thing, but it exists.
But they're not blood-related!
And Claire and Kal are.
Like Mahou Sensou, right?
Please. Please respond.
It's not about the episode, it's about the screenshot. I mean, post screenshots in 1080 if you want, but if you save them in jpg then the 60% of us who have ~600 kilobytes down or are Australians will bother to open them. I'd love to see your screenshots, it adds a lot to your posts, but it would take me twenty seconds to open them and that's kind of a bother.
I trust him more than I trust you.
I like how they made the plain had an enormous and violent explosion so that any possibility of Mitty surviving was rootd out.
I wasn't that big, just your average fighter explosion.
It was big enough for me
I wish I was Mitty. The dude dies an heroic death saving his waifu and being badass as hell.
Most of us will just live a shitty life as salarymen and then die when we are in our 70s of some shitty decease.
Better die as a hero than live as a faggot.
Dying isn't nice.
How do you know? Had you ever died?
Have you ever lived your live as a salaryman and died in your 70s?
But did he have sex with Chiharu?
It's meaningless if he didn't.
Years from now, Chiharu will be bent over getting her ass pounded out and fatty will just be a distant memory.
Yes, and it sucked
>implying she won´t be shouting his name
Chiharu is a pure girl!
>implying Chiharu is some whore who shouts names during sex
And that's why fatso couldn't have had sex with her.
She is obviously pregnant from that handshake on the see-saw.
No, it was for hugging Antonio Banderas
Fuck I actually cried this episode when mit-chan died.
I was about to. They didn´t made it emotional enough.
I'm a sucker for heroic sacrifices.
I´m too. I was in the verge of tears but then the explosion happened and somehow and found it funny and started laughing.
It was like " Fuck, that guy got completely roasted" and then I laughed.
Or you know? He could've just took a fullscreen screenshot and put it into paint?
It's been a long time since I've cried over a character dying, but this did it for me.
He died so his waifu could live. He was a true hero.
So, how many expected this to happen? Don't tell me anyone was honestly surprised that Porky had to die.
I was expecting both of them to die, the fact only mitty died made it much more tragic.
We expected death since the first episode (I think most of us are also expecting a bad ending, and not only in the sense of a badly done ending). Fatso and Morena had all those death flags in the last episode so, it was expected.
It was made pretty obvious with all the death flags in the previous episode, but that doesn't make his death any less upsetting.
Even though he was a fatty, he was a pretty great guy.
Honestly, the fatplane should have gone down in less than ten seconds once all the bombarers started firing.
What was that, the Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy Air Force?
They have shitty planes or somethin
no, they're simply armed with guns from the imperial guard
>Even though he was a fatty, he was a pretty great guy.
He's one of the best fatty characters I've ever seen in anime.
Are any anime aired in everything above 720p - like the dumbass 768p that you see running around from time-to-time? 1080p is obviously upscale, but is 720p downscale?
Well since CR doesn't use broadcast raws, it is possible, if it were mastered higher, that it could be higher than 720p
Japan is planning on starting 4K broadcasting later this year. I highly doubt anime will be mastered for 4K though
Alright, place your bets, who's next?
>>yfw finding out that god tier OP is sung by Airi and NINA VIENTO
I had the feeling that this part of the OP is a hint towards the order of character´s deaths.
Notice how fatso is at the back? If I´m right, Wolfgang is the next one.
Being fat and big are death sentences then. Oh no, not Fausto's friend!
Don´t worry. It isn´t in the image, but Wolfgang´s friend (the guy named Marco) is behind Fausto´s friend.
Does Luis fuck her?
Yes, Marco. The guy everyone knows.
can someone make only the burning cockpit gif loop, possibly without him opening his mouth.
I bet that place they are lookinf for (Sky´s End or whatever the fuck it´s called) doesn´t even exists and it was all a excuse to sent them there to die.
I dunno, the midway point exists, the Sky Clan exist, and there's a fucking flying mountain range.
I ended crying like a bitch, great episode.
Did I save the show guys?
I fucking love Stukas.
>Character gets less than 10 minutes of total development
>paired up with the delicious brown
>everyone here loses their shit when he dies after some of the most flagrant death flagging ever.
You guys sure are desperate for some "suffering" aren't you?
Also, the quality in this episode was hilarious.
I didn't his death at the least bit sad, it could've been done so much better along with the entire show. But I welcomed it.
I still can't quite understand the tactics of the sky clan. They know there is a large force approaching them so they cut the Navigation lights. As soon as flares start popping around them, they freak out and order all AA on every bomber, destroyer, and carrier to take aim at one recon plane. I mean, they have already lost the element of surprise by being lit by the flare, but shouldn't they instead focus fire on the bombers and torpedo planes that can now see them in the flarelight plus their tracers. In the end, their AA does nothing, the only thing that brings down fatboy is a group of escort planes, and the Clan still loses a bunch of bombers. Horrible tactical decisions all around.
Also, why not gain altitude and cloud cover before firing the flare, then break through your own lines to safety. Dis-fucking-ray.
>making this much sense
It's like you don't even want fatty to die.
Because they are barbarians.
But seriously, you are completely right. I couldn´t understand either why they concentrated their whole firepower into taking down one shitty plain.
More of these coming up I'm sure.
What's wrong with your apostrophes?
Will we line them up as they come?
They're religious fanatics. They don't understand that there is a possibility that they might eventually lose. They were tailed by a scout plane and then revealed by it. Huge loss of honor. Mitty and tan girl counted coup on the whole fleet.
Meanwhile the Death Star snuck up on Isla from another direction. The bomber fleet isn't really even needed, it may even have been another diversion if their other one, throwing away the Balsteros exiles, didn't work.
I'm spanish and I'm not used to the " ' " apostrophe.
Fuck. I just want them to get back to the NINA VIENTO stuff. It's the only element in this story that's the least bit compelling. The source material is obviously pretty poorly written and the animation studio certainly isn't making it any better.
Because if anyone does something realistic or intelligent in this story, it will fuck everything else up- The whole point of the battle was to give fatty a hero's death (not sure why but that's what it is). Had the Sky Clan fleet shot at the Knight planes instead and hindered their assault, fatty would have had to die for nothing.
So who belka here?
and where the fuck is pixy when you need him?
Who wants to bet on the krauts having some magic of their own?
You seem upset. There are other threads for shows you may like better, I suggest them. See, I don't like Magical Warfare, I think it's stupid and has worse exposition than half of fanfiction.net. I don't go into their threads and whine about that. They know it. I stay here and talk about what I like.
They say the belkans managed to smuggle out aerial superfortress designs before they were destroyed
prop driven XB-0 hresvelgr anyone?
>Also, the quality in this episode was hilarious.
You mean the quality in this whole series? They must be running on spit, prayers and I.O.U.s at the studio.
Is the soundtrack for this series in MIDI? Because it sure as hell sounds like it's MIDI.
Was that 'red eyes' thing used in a dramatic way to show Kal-el's anger or does he actually goes Terminator when he sees Nina Viento?
I was oddly disappointed that he didn't turn around and charge at the pursuing planes in an attempt to take them down with him
He's got bigger fish to fry.
I was also expecting fatso to go full kamikaze.
I will leave this here and go.

>get shot in shoulder
>can't fly a plane with 1 arm
>never flies again
Even though I knew it was coming, it was still sad
I really wish this show had a decent budget
thank god that fat fuck died
I can't wait to see who dies next.
>character gets development just in time for them to die to force a reaction out of the viewer
