If there's one thing about S2 that confuses me the most, it's how every other third year Haruka knew in the LN got flashback sequences and other moments where they mention memories of their younger years. Yet strangely there was not one moment of acknowledgement in the anime that Haruka and Sousuke share a past. It takes a lot of context away from Sousuke's personality and his interactions with Haruka were rendered shallow. Sousuke was a key person in Haruka's life in the LN, but for whatever reason the anime just kind of erased that and pretended it never happened. They basically rebooted their entire relationship from the LN, minus the conflict resolution and mutual understanding they reached in the end.
>>
>>115246533
I don't care really. Swimming in a flowery pool doesn't seem all that exciting.

>>115247952

>>
>>115251363
Sousuke has said he raced Haru in ep 2 though. Their scenes in S2 is a bit similar to the LN so having flashbacks of it seems redundant to me.
>>
>>115247952
that would be "moeeeee" haru not moo.

>>
>>115246533
When I saw that scene all I could think about was how much of a pain it would be to skim all that shit once they were done.
>>
>>115252090
Sure, there was a mention that Haruka and Sousuke raced each other, but there was nothing about their friendship or the conversations they had.

My issue is that their scenes in S2 were pointless because they pretty much mirrored their rocky interactions in the novel, only less well written.

Their interactions stagnated to that one segment of their relationship and made very, very little progression whatsoever. That they even had a conflict at all was rather arbitrary, and there never seemed to be any solid reason for why they made Sousuke dislike Haru all over again, or at least why their tensions lasted for so long and never got truly resolved even after the finale. It seems like a waste of time.
>>
>>115252459
I agree that their interactions were handled poorly in the show though I don't think they were really friends in the LN. They do respect each other as swimmers, but Sousuke doesn't seem to like Haru's mindset towards the sport.
>>
>>115252984
Yeah but Sousuke not totally agreeing with Haruka's philosophies doesn't mean they weren't friends. Sousuke didn't totally agree with Rin's philosophies either, really.

We didn't see any interactions between Rin and Sousuke in the LN so its hard to compare, but I doubt Sousuke would be as rude as he was with Haru. I know people like to bring up the croquettes but Haru's mother made those. Haru offered some vegetable thing he made himself to Sousuke and he outright refuse to even try it.
>>
>>115252132
Actually, it would be directly translated as "Mooo- Haru", but I've seen English speakers translating もーっ as "mou" and thought that was widely accepted due to English phonetics.
>>
>>115253376
I wasn't implying that he would be as rude with Rin as he was with Haruka, although, it was mentioned in the novels that Rin and Sousuke fought a lot, and their differences were part of what made Rin search for his "ultimate team" elsewhere. Sousuke wasn't the type who would want to be a part of something like that.

Sousuke refusing to try Haruka's cooking was just him being a tsun little prick, but they were pretty much getting along otherwise. Haruka wasn't exactly bothered by it.

And I have no delusions about them being really close or on perfect terms with one another, but I would still describe what they had in the LN as a weird sort of rivalry friendship.
>>
>>115253085
Sousuke just didn't like Haru because he felt he was wasting his potential. Since he had an injury it must have been frustrating to see someone with so much talent and lacking motivation. I feel like Sousuke was just projecting on Haru.

Also I don't think they were ever THAT close that Sousuke would treat him like a friend after years passed.

Though yeah, Sousuke's deal with Haru and his resolution were not handled as well as they could have been.

They crossed some words in High Speed! 1, but it was mainly to introduce Rin's dead dad issue to the Iwatobi boys.
He literally approached Rin and asked about his dead dad, then retreated when he realized that the others didn't knew.

The whole concept of making Sosuke into a whole character feels like pure marketing to me.

So? It's still canon, regardless whether that is even true or not, and it's still a decent read and gives you more insight into the characters and flows well as a sequel to the original book. And it still doesn't change that Kyoani spent more screen time on Kissme and Haruka's past in one episode than his past with Sousuke for the entire season. It really feels like their were in over their heads trying to write him. Even now it doesn't feel like they've really figured out who/what Sousuke is.

I like this anon. Honesty is the best policy when it comes to admitting Free's flaws.

>>
>>115254537
I never said it was not canon.
I'm just saying that making Sosuke a Rin fan boy for HS2 and FrES feels like someone at KyoAni said "Marketing department says we need a new character in Samezuka so we can complete the 4 characters set. Here, this one already has a name and used to be Rin's friend. Just put some deep friendship story behind him."

I agree that he really feels rushed and unresolved.
>>
>>115253903
Their interactions were too business like to me. They're just acquaintances since I can't really call them friends if they don't hang out, and they only raced once or twice.
>>
>>115253737
It literally translates to "mo haru" with an extra "oh" at the end
>>
>>115255100
He didn't feel rushed at all in the LN though. He was a pretty fleshed out character in his own right. That is the point I'm trying to make here. For whatever reason it was, they just didn't do a very good job at keeping his personality consistent from the novel into the anime.

>>115255103
Haruka didn't hang out with pretty much anyone outside of the swim club besides Makoto, but that doesn't mean they weren't his friends. There are different types and levels of friendship too. And to clafiry again, I'm not saying they were nakama or even all that close, but the dynamic they had was unique to them and I would still interpret it as friendship, even if they were too stubborn to admit it.
>>
>>115255229
Like "mo oh Haru"?
The ー is a prolongation of the last vowel. In this case, it's a long ー and so the vowels should be greatly extended.
And the っ in this case is marking a break of form, and should be represented with a dash.
"mooo- Haru"
>>
>>115255645
i know what a choon is. there is only one vowel. it's o which is pronounced "oh" in nip

moe or mou however you wanna spell it isn't moo.

nips can't into sounds
>>
>>115255356
I count the swim club as part of "hanging out" since "spending time with" seemed too vague. You have to like the person to be friends, and Sousuke doesn't seem to like Haru enough to really see him as a friend. He only talked to him cause of Rin's letter and to give back his key holder. Its quite business like and its the same in the show. Though I think he will be more friendlier post ep13. I've been hoping they get friendlier but nope.
>>
>>115255795
Why would they spell it as moo? The onomatopoeia for cows in moonspeak is もー not む
>>
>>115255356
>He didn't feel rushed at all in the LN though. He was a pretty fleshed out character in his own right.
Yet it feels weird to me that he suddenly went from someone Rin used to know in HS1, to someone who would get mad and fight for Rin in HS2.

>For whatever reason it was, they just didn't do a very good job at keeping his personality consistent from the novel into the anime.
I personally suspect that they had one or two meetings were they marked Sosuke's main characteristics, and then maintained confidentiality between the projects.
So they had two writers, writing HS2 and FrES at the same time, without being able to see the other Sosuke..
>>
>>115256179
>Why would they spell it as moo?
Because they're trying and failing at spelling an english onomatopoeia

Kyoani just kinda sucks ass at adapting the characters well, period. Anime! Haru and LN Haru differ in quite alot of ways too. I feel like they just didn't know where to go with Sosuke/Haru's interactions at all. Shit writers a shit
>>
>>115255795
I think you are reading "mooo-" as "むーっ", but I'm writing it in Hepburn romanization. It's literally "もーっ". Which is the onomatopoeia for a cow in Japanese.

But this is not the DJT. Let's stop.

>Yet it feels weird to me that he suddenly went from someone Rin used to know in HS1, to someone who would get mad and fight for Rin in HS2.
Why is that? Even Sousuke admitted to himself that he felt he was acting strangely and just taking out his negative feelings on Haru. And in HS1 it was pretty clear that Sousuke and Rin had a special bond and that Sousuke felt deeply for Rin, even if he didn't express it openly to Rin's face.

>I personally suspect that they had one or two meetings were they marked Sosuke's main characteristics, and then maintained confidentiality between the projects.

I almost felt like that would be the case, except for the fact that they did a pretty damn spot on job with Kissme. Though his episode was much later in the season and thus later in production, but still, was the novel not finished being written before the anime went into production? It's difficult to tell.

Episode 2 Sousuke feels like a different person to his episode 4 self, and then he feels different again in episode 6, and then episodes 9 and 10, and yet another shift in epsidoe 11. It's like they're all similar enough, but don't quite blend into each other.
>>
>>115256440
It was discussed plenty before. But I feel like Haru was properly adapted from the LN. It just felt weird because there was no inner monologue explaining his actions.

If anything, they did went overboard with the pool joke in the first episodes.
>>
>>115256581
>Even Sousuke admitted to himself that he felt he was acting strangely and just taking out his negative feelings on Haru.
Just for reference sake:

>After he parted from Haruka and Makoto, Sousuke was looking up at the sky while he was walking down the path lined with plane trees. When he lets his breath out together with what has accumulated in his chest, his feelings calmed down just a little.
>He wonders why he ended up getting so worked up over it. Perhaps it had irritated him that they didn’t enter? Perhaps he had felt a sense of lacking from them starting something like club activities? No, it’s not just that. He had felt resentment towards himself that with a loss against Rin, he even ended up losing the chance to repay the debt. Then he ended up overlapping Rin with Haruka.
>Without knowing it, Sousuke was smiling bitterly. At best, he took it out on him for no reason. From Haruka’s point of view, what a terrible backlash it is. However, when he thinks of Rin’s feelings, he couldn’t stand to not say it after all.
>>
>>115256581
They did said in an interview that they were quite lost with Sosuke up to episode 4 or something like that. I don't remember the exact quote right now.

I don't feel like he had so many breaks. He had like two different personalities up until episode 7.
They showed a serious Sosuke that wanted to make Rin a champion, pushing Haruka against a vending machine to keep him away and complaining to Rin when he barely lost a race.
And then there was the Sosuke that listened to Rin's friendship story while smiling and begged Rin to join the relay because he wanted to see the sight too.

Gou isn't nonexistent in the novels though. She made a few appearences, like that scene where she embarrassed Rin and tolk Makoto and Haruka that Rin moved into his grandma's house so he could transfer to Iwatobi and swim with them. And in High Speed 2 there is another girl named Satomi who was the library assistant with Haruka, and she has a fair bit of "screen" time as well. She was shy and kind of a bookworm, while Aki was more cheerful and outgoing.

They were also never on really bad enough terms that Sousuke would still act so antagonistic toward Haru after all these years. Quite the opposite.
>>
>>115257877
Haru's resolution was shit and yea, it partially has to do with us not seeing his thoughts, but it also has to do with Kyoanus's terrible execution.

Instead of subtly showing him eventually liking competitive swim, they have him reject that shit to the point of temper tantrum and then have him suddenly change his mind for shit... i still don't know what reason but it wasn't good.
>>
>>115258436
Yeah but she wasn't a swimmer, and that anon was asking what if there were girl swimmers in the anime. But in their defense, no one was really interesting in joining the club, whether guys or girls. Although I don't think they ever showed girls at meets either, not even as extras in the background. Maybe I need to watch the scenes again.

>I feel like Haru was properly adapted from the LN.

I completely disagree. LN Haru was emotionally definitely much stronger.
>>
>>115258540
Sousuke's antagonism toward Haru was never that bad in the novel. At they at least showed Sousuke admitting to himself that he was taking it out on Haru for no reason immediately after he yelled at him. In the anime, there was never a moment that shows Sousuke admitting that he knew he was acting stupid and was just venting his feelings out on Haru although if there was, prove me wrong; I would love to be wrong about this. It's difficult to tell exactly what the extent of his feelings about Haru were, but at least he smiled at him (or, in his general direction) in episode 13.
>>
>>115258571
My bad then. Aki had a great role in the first LN, but she just played as the explainer for her brother's behavior towards Haru in the 2nd LN.
>>
>>115258745
No, anime Sousuke never showed any kind of remorse for his actions.

He didn't show remorse, but his feelings toward Haru did show a gradual change. Although the pathway to that change didn't make a whole lot of sense.

>I really liked it in HS. It gave him a lot more personality.
Nailed it. Though some of that inner monologue would have made him pretty unlikeable at the beginning.
>>
>>115258555
The foreshadowing for him enjoying it was a lot weaker than his outbursts against it. That's why his epiphany fell flat for me.

It was obvious it was pro or nothing since there wasn't really any other options shown, but I thought him stopping in the middle of a race was a very powerful moment at the time. Now in retrospect it doesn't mean as much anymore.
>>
>>115258982
Summary is spot on and shows the retarded contradictory nature of anime Sousuke's character very well.
Though I guess the acknowledgement thing was just a way to hide his obvious jealousy.
>>
>>115259029
It depends on the voice actor's delivery too, I think. Much of his negative thoughts toward the people around him, in my mind, were meant to be seen as funny or at least not malicious in nature. Like he'd say Makoto was being meddlesome, but actually appreciated the lengths he went to look out for him, etc.
>>
>>115259107
Yeah, Haru's quite tsun. But judging by the reactions for the bento scene in episode 8, some autists are too dense to pick up that secretely caring part of his personality.
>>
>>115259029
I liked his inner monologue in the very first episode though I'm probably in the minority on that.
>>
>>115258734
Which was due to Nao's support who is unfortunately not in the anime, so Kyoanus could prolong the drama.

>>115259228
I'm not talking about the water autism ones, but the parts where he thinks how annoying his friends are (which is realistic though).

I think Haruka's resolution could have gone two ways:

>Admitting that he still doesn't know what he wants to do, but realizing that he wants to search for a dream in his own way. Being the only one to stay behind at a local college and really weighing his options.

>Being open to his scouting offers, and deciding he will try serious competitive swimming for a year and see how he likes it, and then take it from there.

Those, at least to me, would be more in line with Haruka's character than suddenly wanting to become a pro swimmer absolutely without a doubt. The most important thing for Haruka wasn't choosing a solid career path straight out of high school, but finding peace with himself and embracing his own future without fear, even if he doesn't know where it will lead him.

It really made no sense for him not to apologize to Haruka after what happened in episode 10. The fact that he saw the "sight"' and understood first-hand what not only Rin, but Haru felt during that relay last year makes him still feeling bitter toward Haruka make even less sense.
>>
>>115259767
Awaiting proper scan and dick shop.
>>
>>115259963
I see no reason to apologize since they aren't very close friends. Sousuke did show that he cares about Haru enough to go all the way to Iwatobi and tried to encourage him.
>>
>>115259767
I want to lick it off and then apply new cream on the Harubutt.
>>
>>115260060
You don't have to be close friends with someone in order to apologize to them. It was still a dick move.
>>
>>115260060
You're right about that. And I don't begrudge Sousuke for not apologizing, even if I still think that it would add to his character if he did. He did apologize to Haru in the LN, for a much smaller offese.

If I begrudge anyone it's the writers of this show missing an opportunity. I don't see how anyone could lose in that situation.
>>
>>115260257
>He did apologize to Haru in the LN, for a much smaller offese.

Did he really apologize?
>>
>>115260381
Yeah. Basically Sousuke insulted Nao to Haru's face because he was angry at Haru for joining his school's swim team and quitting the Iwatobi SC (an ongoing conflict with multiple characters in the story), and didn't respect Nao because he's the swim team's manager and doesn't participate in swimming himself.

But then later Haru shows Sousuke a technique he learned, and Sousuke is amazed and says the person who taught him is awesome. Then Haru tells him he learned it from Nao and Sousuke apologizes for insulting him. Since Nao was not present in both exchanges, he was essentially apologizing to Haru. Though he was also apologizing for Nao. He also lowered his head when he apologized.

So, Sousuke had the capacity for humility in Haru's presence, in the LN at least.
>>
>>115260740
Then I see no reason to make Sousuke keep acting like a rude faggot to Haru.
>>
>>115246533
I wish they were drawn with nipples. I'd be able to watch this show if they at least had nipples. It breaks my entire immersion.

No KyoAni show has nipples
>>
>>115261105
Most anime in general don't have nipples.
>>
>>115261099
Yes, but in real life most men have nipple. I don't mind if it's an occasional episode in an anime where a character is shirtless and doesn't have nipples, but when being shirtless is a reoccurring theme through out the series it becomes a little off putting that no one has nipple. It almost makes me feel like in the universe of Free all men in the world were born without nipples, which is frankly weird.
>>115261105
Most kyoani shows don't have shirtless men on screen for most episodes.

Which doesn't help your point at all.
More shirtless bodies = more nipples which means more unnecessary work for the animators. Plus KyoAni never draws nipples, probably because it goes against their work ethic.

Drawing nipples is hardly work at all. It's just a circle. A simple circle would suffice because it would actually complete the human anatomy. If they were trying to shave off work that bad they would have not draw belly buttons, or noses.

>>115261968
Yes, but in most anime you see men with shirts on most of the time, so whether or not they have nipples is mostly undisclosed. Any person born believing men had nipples would assume they had nipples. This gives a sense of correctness. Completely ruling off nipples from the face of the earth from the start makes you feel like something completely not right.

Because it has cute half-naked boys, obviously. No one would be bothering to overanalyze the show if it was just another SoL about cute girls.

>>115262726

>>115262667
Well as someone who would potentially watch the show, this is an issue I couldn't get over. No matter if it's an issue that applies to many people or only me, it's still a deciding factor in whether or not someone would watch the show.
>>115262772
I don't think small pink ovals would be distracting and I think they're important to abide by the general rules of anatomy. Say they didn't add eyebrows to any of the characters. Anime is not realistic so it's completely plausible that there would be a world devoid of eyebrows, but that doesn't make it any less weird.
>>
>>115262835
It's because it had a plot and drama. If K ON had a plot with drama their threads would be just like this.
>>
>>115262869
I'm not butthurt, just pointing out the obvious. There aren't a lot of quality shows about cute boys, so people latch on to this one, get obsessed with it and analyze the show way beyond the point a casual viewer would care about.
>>
>>115262836
Of course it's not a matter of GREAT importance, but why else would I spend my time on an anime discussion board in a thread about a specific anime at all if not to criticize something that stopped me from watching the show.
You could spend half an hour praising the show and it would be just as valuable as me criticizing the show for any reason. The amount that matters doesn't mean that it doesn't still matter to some people. Even if the matter is small.
>>
>>115262878
Most anime don't have nipples, let alone male nipples. It's become normal by now.
>>
>>115263018
KyoAni put controversioal themes and questionabke writing into this show, of course people are going to discuss it.
>>
>>115262519
It's not that it all sucks, but there were some really promising episodes in the beginning that made people believe that the drama this time would be better executed and more entertaining. Mostly people got their hopes up.

Free has some good things and some bad aspects, especially obvious in S2. I guess basically the best thing to do is take what you liked and ignore the rest while waiting for the movie to finally set everyone free.
>>
>>115262962
Doubt it. Amaburi already has more of a plot than Free, yet no one really cares about it and the threads are full of circlejerking about the fairies and Kanye jokes.

Plus, you can't really claim the people analblasted about Rin's line as Rinfags. Shit, they could have been Sousukefags for all you know. That's the retarded part about claiming x as being the sole source of something on an anonymous site.

Dude, we had whole threads with nothing but endless arguments about it, Harufags even started complaining that it prevented them from bitching about the puuru moment.

Do you have the previous OST sales number? Or other OSTs sales numbers? I'm curious as to how bad/good 5k is for an OST.

I was actually expecting sales to be high, since buying the OST is the only way to get Clear Blue Departure.
Then again, we are talking about a 3.3k yen price while the other CDs were abou 1.2k so I can see if people were not totally willing to pay.
It's a Katou OST though and it's totally worth it.

I'm guessing Rin for cover and Rei for Side B. But which pair for Side A? Rei was already involved in the first two Side A. Doubt he'll have another one. Specially if he's having already the Side B.

I hope they will be at least a little gay but this season's jackets seem to be less gay overall. Too bad.

>>
>>115266397

>>115266627
It wouldn't make sense to have Nitori and Momo if they weren't in the covers, I guess. But 8P is more than acceptable too.
>>
>>115266594
As of now, 6P seems awkward considering Sousuke still isn't friends with the Iwatobis. I hope this changes soon.
>>
>>115266644
Yeah, I forgot those. All the songs are good on their own, though.
>>
>>115266627
>>115266649
I would prefer 8P, too but Nitori and Momo don't seem to be featured on the jackets, so I doubt that they will put them on the cover. Too bad.

>>115266667

Sure, buddy.
Stop being so fucking sensitive.
>>
>>115266667
>>Wanting to start a 5P/6P war
>It's not even funny anymore.
I'm not even starting a war, I'm just questioning the logic of showing Sousuke alone on a cover rather than having Samezuka 4p+Iwatobi 4p, or 8P at the end.
6P seems like a copout for the official stuff when 8P at least got singles.
>>
>>115266649
>>115266719

8P didn't even happen, so it makes sense not to include it on the BD covers. 6P doesn't make any sense either.

I hope Sousuke gets his own cover on BD vol.6 and then 5P on the last cover.

KyoAni never did 6P merch.

They all seem to be mostly paired up in the upcoming merch though, so it won't be that awkward.
>>
>>115266919
Can you really imagine Sousuke being in a group hug with 5P without it being awkward?
>>
>>115266961
8P or 5P otherwise no dice
>>
>>115266771
6P is inevitable anyway. They all show interest in Sousuke despite not talking to him much and Sousuke no longer has hard feelings toward Haru. With the mutual friendship with Rin they are all bound to interact at least sometime eventually. It's honestly a bummer that they didn't have interaction in the finale even though there were plenty of opportunities for both 6P and 8P
>>
>>115266961
That's what makes it adorable though
>>
>>115266979
8P doesn't make any sense as of now because the show seperated the teams way too much.
Nice concept, but wasted potential.
>>
>>115267064
I think they wanted the finale to focus on Iwatobi and reserve the sakura puuru scene for 5P. But they already said that we will get 8P in the OVA, so yeah, it's inevitable.

It was still very much about friendship. It just wasn't in the way people were expecting, or if I'm being honest, what they wanted.

It's not just 5P, Iwatobi friendship was also put on the backburner for a good part of the season.

>>115252459
> their friendship
Here we go again. They weren't friends in the LN for god sake, yes they managed to resolve things and had a nice conversation and share croquettes but that doesn't make them friends suddenly. And it's obvious from their interactions in ep2 that they knew each other before (not like the anime pretended they didn't) and even if the conflict seems weird to you because it was supposed to be resolved, I don't find it that hard to believe that Sousuke would be shaken after seeing Rin's state in the regionals the previous year and then what they pulled with the relay which could have prevented Rin from getting scouts. Not saying it was super well handled but it's not like it's the only thing that was badly written this year but reading again and again that they butchered a meaningful friendship when there is nothing like that to begin with, seriously stop. Also not everyone likes to have the harem mc to have every single character's story revolve around him.

It makes me super mad that they're never going to release those events.
Even the event for fucking Samurai Flamenco got released, Kyoani could just bundle the events in one BD and be over with it but no, they don't realize it's going to sell perfectly well.
Don't tell me they're waiting for the next event to bundle them all together, I don't want to believe.

They totally are. We got like four different spreads of the Frees in their sleepwear. And well I guess this one is the only one where they're all wearing matching gay pajamas I guess, but it's not exceptional.

Things get out of proportion and both Nagisa and Haruka get scouted to become respectively an idol and a chef. 10/10 absolutely hilarious no I can't come up with anything actually funny either.
I'd really like to see Nagisa being popular as a cashier though. I want Nagisa to bathe in adoration because he deserves it.

>>115280000
If Haruka's cooking he won't need to sell smiles though. Maybe they can make him distribute fliers or some shit to promote the mackerel burgers. This wouldn't end well though.

Generals for finished shows are frowned upon and often get deleted by mods, but of course Freefags have the biggest victim complex on the board.

Did they get more pandering in the recent magazines again?

Sure, that's why there are daily K-ON threads, am I right.

They were way too analpained at the idea of Haru and Sousuke being friends and only listed information from the LN everyone already knows without having to read it and then talking about the anime even though the point was that the anime left out context from the LN- there was more to their interactions than sharing croquettes. They also acted like people were saying they had this super close friendship even though no one said that. Free threads in /a/ typically don't have anyone THAT against the idea that they could have been friends (it is usually the opposite, to my observation), so that was obviously someone who doesn't visit threads very often. Also

They are obviously a tumblr newshit

Why eggs?

Are you telling me they aren't canon best friends?

On another note, Keion threads are fifty times comfier than Free threads simply because of the fact that its fanbase consists of smelly otaku happily fapping to moeblobs and not angry fujoshits who bitch about everything.

>>115283224
Whatever you say >>115283060

>>115283377
The fact nobody comes into K-ON threads to shitpost about fujoshits is likely another big factor for its "comfiness".

Maybe Free threads would be less hostile if people like

wouldn't come here.
>>
>>115283440
Of course no one would shitpost about fujos for an anime with only girls as the main lead. There is also no fighting in the threads because K-ON has zero drama in its plot and so the fans are only there for light and fluffy time

Are you honestly surprised that people on 4chan are mean to you?

Of course not. But you're missing the point.

He's completely right though, metashits are the true cancer of any threads.

So you're saying metashitting about fujoshits and Free threads being semi-frequent is the right thing instead of letting people circlejerk in peace?

Like always, the night crowd always trumps the day crowd. At least this thread is almost dead.

>>115283740
People who dump shitty /cm/-tier fanart without any comments are cancer too.
>>
>>115283807
You must love K-ON threads then.

>>115283392
If you actually think metashitting is more cancerous than "muh canon yaoi ship" then there's no place on this board for you m8.

>"muh canon yaoi ship"
You should stop projecting and being paranoid, this never happened in this thread before you came here with your delusional metashitting.
