Why is this show flopping? I thought it have pretty much perfect formula
>>
Because the Japs dislike non-harem fantasy.
>>
Because the Japanese have shit taste. I thought we established this already.
>>
>>115309955
It's not very good, not even as a fantasy anime.
>>
Bullshit.
Chaika is super popular in Akiba.
>>
>>115310099
The animation's not great, but it's totally serviceable and the writing's solid. It's a good show.

Would you prefer good sales but second season never like Maou, NGNL and others? Enjoy what you have and stop complaining, faget.

>the writing's solid
Is it? I recall it being somewhat generic.
>>
>>115309955
Because Bones dumped all their efforts on CE over past 6 months, thus Chaika got the short end of the stick when comes down to tecnical quality.
Also the adaptation is not that great, could be better.
Also Japan shit taste which doesn't like anymore a good true fantasy adventure, i guess.

I would've dropped this quite some time ago to read the LNs, but there's little or no translation at all.
>>
>>115311093
It is. It's not cliched, everyone has understandable motivations, and there's a consistent unifying theme to everyone and everything.

By any standard, that's solid. Compared to most anime, that's fucking amazing.

>>115311273
The author frequently points out the irony of selling-out to otaku and receiving lower sales than Scrapped Princess.

What's that supposed to mean? I haven't watched Pokemon since I was like six.

>>115311622
It means the level and competence of the writing is as impressive as pokemon's. A show you were watching when you were six.
>>
>>115311819
I don't remember what Pokemon was like because I was six.

So just say you think the writing is bad in plain English. It doesn't make you any less wrong.

I didn't say the writing was bad. I said it was pokemon tier.

It's a very good fantasy adventure anime.
>>
>>115312073
That's why it's flopping. Japan has shit taste.
>>
The manga is better.

Anime shafted too many characters besides Tooru and Chaika and made Tooru more of a solo fighter when he is actually more of a combo fighter with Akari.

Also, anime cut out too much fanservice so no Chaika in her camouflage pajamas and no Federicka licking Tooru's face.
>>
>>115311413
Read the novel afterwards/author's messages. There is a stupid reason that there are no new named male characters after the first episode or two.
>>
>>115312128
shame manga release is so fucking slow
>>
>>115311983
The first half of the first season of Pokemon was widely acclaimed. After record sales and ratings, the lead writer or director or someone was fired, and Pokemon became the ignorable show it is today.

>Sabrina
>Dragonite
>Ghost beach
>Electric power ststion
etc. Those were all deemed nonconducive to appealing to the lowest common denominator among the audience.
>>
>>115312145
I have no idea why any author would whine about that.

While I'm sure they're good, I don't have any interest in light novels as a medium. I've heard about a few of the differences, and while they're not all great, I think the anime made some smart cuts and I adored the entire resolution of the Ricardo encounter.

So I just want to give the show's script writer kudos.
>>
>>115312241
It's a show aimed at toy-purchasing six year olds, of course it's going to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

I'm just not seeing the parallels with Chaika at all. I thought the first season was consistently good, and the second season's started out strong so far.

Annnnd picked up.
>>
>>115309955
it is a sequel of a not so popular series. not many people will want to pick it up so it will only sell worse than S1. I love it though. it has a small and dedicated audience so it won't be a complete disaster.
>>
>>115312321
The show starts out as a story about a human god's rise to power, one-man industrial magic revolution and, ultimately, his Golden Path for humanity.

It turns into a harem shounenshit girl-of-the-week show with a generic male lead encountering legions of incompetent opponents. The only interesting bits are the former heroes' lives, which the first three did well, bjt which the fourth isz so far, awful.

If Frederika's story, the count's story and the magical matrioshka doll story were like Pokemon's early arcs, then this second season feels more like a generic training arc with mindless technobabble and a bland former hero devoid of any curiosity at all.
>>
>>115312572
IS2 currenly has more stalker points than S1 after the first ep aired. It may end up selling more but it depends on how bones handles the episodes.
>>
Plot is not enough to actually make good sales. You need to have something on the series that will make the people think buying worth it. There are few anime that actually has decent plot but didn't also do good when it comes to sales. Gosick first comes to mind.

I don't really know how to express it but it's something like an "end game" to games. People need to feel that there's still something after the anime is over. Be it fan arts, discussions, merchandise, etc, I don't know.

You need to have something in your work to stand out for people to actually talk about it. The characters, the plot etc

Chaika never sold very well in Japan, for some reason its just not popular there. Its a really solid show tho, sometimes I just dont understand Japan's taste

Its not a bad show, it just came out at the exact same time two candidates for AOTY came out.

Maybe because the author had previously written Scrapped Princess and this one is like that one except terrible.

First off, this is an artistic nudity in an ending.
Secondly, that's not even nearly as lewd as the novels' illustration and finally, S2 don't even have that much.
It was obvious right from the start that otaku won't buy a single copy, and I don't see this being mainstream/popular/advertised enough for normals. Flopping was inevitable.

You're superficially comparing the premise of the two, that has nothing to do with how good the writing is. The writing in Chaika is in fact very above average.

>Team Gillette is a glorified Team Rocket

This, for example. I must've missed the part in Pokémon where the leader of Team Rocket (not that there's one, Giovanni isn't part of what we're talking about) seriously questions the meaning of Justice and if what they're doing is the right thing to do. The part where they have to deal with the apparent loss of their leader and move on, and their part where they learn one of the important members of their crew could be the very thing they were pursuing to kill all along. I don't see powerful character development and well written personal conflicts this often.

>>115317308
>The writing in Chaika is in fact very above average.
No it's not. It's no pokemon but outside of a few ideas in the first couple volumes that the author pretty much abandoned later on, it's bog-standard fantasy action schlock.

pls no, I need more Chaika in my life.

Might only be below the "flop line" (randomly drawn by OP at rank 1,000) because it's a high volatility show, meaning it rises and drops significantly between the time it airs and the next time. New episode airs today, so let's wait and see how the rank is tomorrow and the day after. By points, Chaika is doing not so bad.
However, the sales of S1 are a good indicator of what to expect, which is: missing the Manabi line by a Fractale.

Team Gillette is now Gilletteless. Gilette was only as relevant as the name of his team, therefore nothing of value was lost.

Gillette is obviously alive. What will it be worth? You'll find out this season, I'm no psychic.

Gillette was probably captured by Guy to begin Vivi's Chaika transformation. It's probably a bargaining chip he has against her now. Gillette's absense is a powerful way to give start to the character development of the relevant characters in his squadron.

Why do so many people think that the Japanese anime industry is build like some planned dream economy where ever show has an equal chance of being successful?
>>
>>115326699
Every show has an equal chance of selling when it airs. If it fails to capture the audience, that means it's shit.

Yes it's pretty good, but boring as fuck, watch it for cute girls and glorious mecha animation, you'll be disappointed by the plot.

The pacing is pretty bad too, the first few episodes can be watched together, but then it goes MOTW for like 10 episodes. At this point when you might have lost interest already, the plot gets back on track and delivers something that's neatly tied together but bland and uninteresting. The end is pretty good, it was very predictable but fun nonetheless.

Keep it at the very bottom of your backlog.

It does have its fair share of fanservicy scenes that Bones decided to omit. Especially the hot spring scene in V3. Fucking Bones.

Pre orders for Chaika got huge when Fredricka appeared then dropped when they realized she wasn't going to be doing shit. I kinda agree with them what's the point of having her around when she's barely there? If she were around she'd be a game breaker.

That is thousands of millions.
It is not that far-fetched that for every ten million people there is someone who is attracted to quality animation and handsome men.

Fuck you, no other studio would give us a complete adaptation.

Most other studios would fill it with shitty CGI.

Most studios wouldn't be able to choreograph the fights worth a damn.

Madhouse, IG, hell, I could bet that even fucking Shaft could do a fucking better adaptation that this shit.

The other two I can agree with but I highly doubt SHAFT could do a better job than Bones.

>>115338156

No, faggot. Id rather have a second season. Madhouse sucks shit for novel adaptations and never continues them.

NGNL and Mahouka fans will never see another season regardless of the sales. Never, ever.
>>
>>115338505
Shaft has a history of making masterpieces.
>>
>>115338156
IG is so shitty now though.
Madhouse lost all their best staff to based MAPPA
SHAFT is absolute garbage

As much as I hate BONES they're doing an alright adaptation. It's a much better adaptation than Vanadis for example..
I'm also glad that they cut the lewd. I don't care about lewd if Namaniku ATK himself doesn't draw it, and this is the kind of LN with actually good story so focusing on it was the right choice, and not only that, we're going to get an actual true ending!

If shitty japs doesn't like, it's not because of the quality at all. They just genuinely have DISGUSTING TASTES.
>>
>>115338505

Both studios can have access to the same animators you know?
Also you're comparing a TV serie to a fucking high budget movie, stupid.
SHAFT's TV series are horribly bad looking.

They would adapt anything with a good story or slightly realistic action too.

Yeah, and Nisekoi was a horrible adaptation too, they should have let bones do that!

By the way, who's Jin and how was he involved with Mekaku City Actors? I wonder.
>>
>>115339149
And name anything that Bones has made that was at least average. I'm not going to go above average because they haven't made a single one yet.

They should just go back to making fujoshit like No. 6 and Zetsuen No Tempest, that fit them way more.

Boy, aren't you being ridiculously selective here. If you're gonna overlook all the crap Shaft's done, I can do the same for Bones and say that they too have a history of making masterpieces.

You first, reddit.
>>
>>115339083
I don't think the production of Mekakushitty was typical for any anime. From what I understand, they had the author or composer or something direct the show with no prior experience. It was horribly rushed to boot. They didn't even finish the sound mixing.
>>
>>115339275
>Zetsuen no Tempest
>All that Hakaze fanservice

Did you even watch it?

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Darker Than Black, RahXephon, the list goes on.

>>115339441
I could give you a thumbs up for tokyo mag, it's the definition of mediocrity. The other two don't even come close to average, they're both butchered shit adaptations.

And who said I have shit taste? Someone like you who eats shit for breakfast? Yeah sure, you look like a certified specialist in taste since you eat shit like Chaika up.

I enjoyed that 3 hour long movie. Unless by good you mean anything that compares to the book at all.
>>
>>115339188
Jin is the supreme Shaftman who made all the terrible direction choices, blew all the budget in the wrong places, and decided to have that horrible CGI segment, wasn't he?

Oh, he wasn't? He was just the creator of the franchise who was responsible for the writing and composition which was a fraction of what was wrong with MCA? Still, let's use him as a scapegoat for every problem the show had because it definitely wasn't Shaft's fault!
>>
>>115339547
>they're both butchered shit adaptations
Everything in Noragami was adapted rather well, the original arc at the end was a good choice because there weren't enough episodes to adapt the canon arc following it without actually butchering the source material, and for once they left it open ended enough that they can continue adapting it in the future normally instead of a crazy terrible original ending that would require a reboot.

I love madoka, but picking a high-budget movie is cheating.

Not to mention that for 2 minutes of action or elaborately hair animation you generally get 20 minutes of powerpoint presentations and abstract art.
If anything you can credit shaft for cutting corners into an artform.

If we put movie vs movie then the Star Driver film has better animation than Rebellion. Shaft may be overrated shit but they still lack talent and heart.

The nips bad taste and it's a niche anime.
