Let's talk about this semen demon's show. Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis General.
This is now a Garo thread. Superior MAPPA show.
Anon, please don't do this. Wanting a thread is fine but don't call it a general.
>Horrible & Uneeded CGI Armor
>Generic as fuck Protag
> Muh boobs
Aye aye, sir
What is this face trying to convey?
>hair is a different color than his beard
Hair dye is a terrible thing.
Isn't MAPPA the studio that made Teekyuu? How the fuck did it become a studio capable of doing 2 great full lenght shows in such a short time?
Not that teekyuu wasn't great but it wasn't exactly what you'd call animated.
Well Bahamut at least has a pretty popular phone game as the source material, so there's the budget.
It's crazy how well MAPPA is doing. They came out of nowhere and have already given us ZNT and now SnBG.
Here's hoping Bahamut just keeps getting better.
Stop that shit, right now.
Flopped (and rightly so, it was garbage)
Actively flopping (fantastic insofar, but it doesn't appeal to the Japs who buy BDs)
MAPPA is fucked.
Already said I would - the lesson's been learned.
There's always Teekyuu season 4. They spend like 5 yens mmaking each episode.
General you say?
They don't need to worry about Bahamut. Cygames has bundles of cash, and if the game sees even a little bump in player count, we may even get a second cour.
As bad as it did sales wise, it wasn't a horrible show. (Other than "Yer kidden")
It doesn't matter if it flops. The company funding this anime already paid in full and wants to expose their game via this anime. As long more people play their game, their objective has been reached.
People say ep 1 used 20000 cels. Episodes with 10000 cels are made rarely a few times a year, but does 20000 mean a landmark record for an episode of a TV anime?
I'm following most of the shows this season, but godamn I am looking forward to the next episode of bahamut.
So I guess it makes sens they go for less otaku appeal?
It looked and sounded beautiful everything else, except for lisa, was shit.
Lets try this thing
Anons how do I make time move faster?
Careful not to take too many though, you'll wake up just before your death.
I'd like to see the source on this information, though I wouldn't be surprised if MAPPA went all out on this since financially they have almost no limits.
Pretty much, yeah. They don't need to worry too much about it as long as the show works to promote the game.
I want Amira to hold my sausage and lick my fingers.
Nah, it just gave the studio creative freedom to do whatever the fuck they want. I'm pretty sure the first 15 minutes of episode 1 already cost like 3 episodes of your typical anime with some sort of budget.
I want a delicious figma of Bahamut
Sorry but this anon is slow.
Which anime is ZNT again? Retarded dragon girls?
Zankyou no Terror.
What does Amira's tongue feel like?
Zetsuen no Tempest.
>low tier shitposting
RoB anime wasn't made for BD/DVD sales, just like GBF and GBF Try weren't. They are animated advertisements for the merchandise. And in RoB's particular case, the game and the figurines that sell like hot cakes.
does she have a love interest?
>Generic as fuck Protag
Did you even watch the show? Neither one seems very generic to me. Amira isn't a squealing pile of useless shit and Favaro is a conniving shitbag. It's a nice change from the generic faggot MC.
I wish they(bahamut) sell cool dnd monsters figma instead of cute monstergirl.
I was talking about Garo - not Shingeki no Bahamut.
I love all the characters in Bahamut - it's been a while since that happened, actually.
I hope they expand their figures into figma/figuarts/whatever
She doesn't really, she has a guide and a man who's fallen for her, but she herself seems pretty pure.
>implying they don't
Nobody knows, this is an original series.
Oh. My bad.
Is is that terribad?
Wait, I thought 3 episodes of people talking without moving a single step was the very best thing we had in anime.
Also Salmon being Salmon, especially with the Scottish independence leader named Salmon too.
I've never been a buyfag but I really want a figure of Amira in her demon form.
It's pretty good all around except for the fact that they keep the Japanese VA for English parts for one of the main characters.
It leads to a lot of embarrassing Engrish.
Zero no Tsukimia
Zetsuen no Tempest
Zankyou no Terror
The Japs really have to stop using this acronym.
It's getting confusing.
>This is now a Garo thread. Superior MAPPA show.
you mean the show i nearly fell asleep twice during the first ep watching?
riiiiight. Next you'll be telling us that valvrape was a masterpeice
It was just disappointing. It could have been great but the Japs are too pussy to make an anime about real terrorists.
The list, it is growing.
I agree. Although ISIS being ISIS could be cute to watch too.
Cute girls looting and beheading and stoning.
Episode 15 of TTGL used 35000 cells in one minute so you are wrong.
Too bad. I had high hopes for real terrorism too.
I wish to pull Favaro's tail.
Amazon.jp gives me nothing.
>Cute girls looting and beheading and stoning.
I need an anime about little brown girls firing RPG and shouting ALLAHU AKBAR.
Reminder so far:
- Jeanne D'Arc
- High Demon
- Azazel/Lucifer/Hades (end of episode 2 cameo, couldn't tell which one of the three)
- Amira cosplaying as 6 different other girls from the game
Here's hoping Reiner or Arthur show up
I think it was Azazel, he has a page on their site
Every arc will end with one of the most beloved girl allah akbar herself.
The one thing that prevents me from believing this that Azazel has no relation to Cerberus, but iirc its implied Hades does.
Otherwise, yeah then its most likely him and not Hades or Lucifer.
I totally wouldn't mind getting a Favaro or Amira 1/8 or 1/7 figure.
I was already tempted by the Dark Angel Olivia figure in the past, but since I didn't know anything else about Shingeki no Bahamut, I held back.
I hope they release a ton of new figures for this!
Man DAO was a bitch to get. My friend wanted to make a 6-11 of her back in the day but since she was only obtainable in either high ranking finishing for individuals in HWs or Order rankings or through a premium card pack, it was impossible for him.
She's quite adorable though.
The funny thing is they'll all sell like shit. Hopefully the animation stays good for whatever projects they work on in the future.
>sell like shit
>anime makes bread and butter from figurine sales
This is the same franchise that the card game alone made 1.9 billion USD last yera
>1.9 bullion usd
Yeah, someone said earlier that the company might see it as a success if card sales etc. pick up. I hope they're right.
10-12 million players between the rest of the world and Japan
Imagine a figure of Favaro shooting the crossbow backwards while on horseback. (Like in the OP) Or a figure of Amira dancing or in her demon form?
Or heck - we could get figures from this anime about things they haven't even shown yet.
I'm so tempted and nothing's even been announced yet. I really hope it does well.
Amira is already in JP verison of the game (which is usually about two or three story/event arcs ahead of the western one)
>Or a figure of Amira dancing or in her demon form?
I'd rather a figure of drunk Amira dancing and demon Amira getting biribiri'd.
Amira X Kaisar OTP
YAOIFAGS NEED NOT APPLY
>Implying he still wants her when he finds out she was already fooling around with bomberhead
Kaisar is 2pure.
Does anyone else feel like the sound design in bahamut is lacking? The music and some of the effects are nice but big events like explosions, or even stuff like the horses running, sound really weak.
But that's wrong, idiot.
The whole episode used only 22,000 drawings.
They didn't tune the bass
Funimtion down-mix 5.1 audio to stereo for their release.
Get a 5.1 system and watch the TV-rip.
Man, shes really fuckin' moe.
Why do they do that?
Because online streaming.
Don't ever do this again
It's been established that I have now learned not to. Thank you, fellow Anon.
Your dick when?
This needs to last forever. All hail the new queen of Biri biri.
Why do they have red temples?
But i've watched other funimation shows that don't have the same problem with the bass/whatever causes the sounds to be weak.
What's different here?
Your duck when?
They are drunk. Lots of people get red in the face when they are drunk.
Garo isn't awful IMO and it has a good chance of being a fine show and I like it so far but Bahamut is easily the better of the two so far.
That said the Garo OP is better IMO
Parasyte also happens to be good so far too.
I've never had red temples when drunk. Cheeks and nose, sure. But temples?
Who is to say that Amira is not into polygamy?
Other shows aren't in 5.1.
Bahamut is one of a few.
Oh, ok. Thanks for explaining.
You are not getting drunk enough.
She's not fully human.
>tfw thanks to Funi, Bahamut does something better and awesome, but it makes the show worse for me
Somebody please shoop her sitting on a toilet.
First 2 eps have been fun, I hope it stays like this
So does Horrible Subs rip from Crunchyroll or not?
>We do not translate our own shows because we rip from Crunchyroll, FUNimation, Hulu, The Anime Network, Niconico, and Daisuki.
>We aren’t doing this for e-penis but for the sole reason of pissing off Crunchyroll.
>We are a fansub group. We translate, time, encode, and edit our own shows. We do not rip our shows from Crunchyroll or the likes.
>Usually when people accuse us being “shit” because we rip from Crunchyroll or Funimation or any streaming site for that matter, we keep our mouths shut and continue to do what we do.
> In case you didn't know it, we actually 'rip' (download and repackage) our anime from the two major providers of anime simulcasts, Crunchyroll and Funimation.
The only thing Bahamut has going for it is more production values. Leon is fine, Alfonso seems like a bro, and Zoro is based as fuck.
>The only thing Bahamut has going for it is more production values.
>The only thing Bahamut has going for it is more production values.
Nope, it's genuinely fun so far. Favaro is a delightful dirtbag. Amira isn't the intentional harbinger of destruction people thought and Kaisar is FAVAROOOOOOOOOOOOO
Nah man, besides Amira and the pretty visuals not much else is going for it.
Just go rewatch the original Garo shit or get your head out of your ass, Garo simply isn't as good as Bahamut so far. Your willingly lying or are just blinded by your worship of the original Garo.
No, I was reading the discussion about funimation down-mixing bahamut from 5.1 to stereo, and then I went to HorribleSubs website to see if they always used funimation rips.
>Trusting the daughter of Bahamut.
Nah, confirmed for troll.
She's not 2000 years old, anon.
>If someone disagrees with and proves me wrong I'll call them a troll
Great argument, shitlord.
Happens in real life, too, anons.
You don't even have an argument. The moment >>115352517 brought up some topics to discuss you just hand waved it away with "Nah man".
No wonder the audio in VLC was intermittent.
So far this is AOTS material, nothing is even coming close for me.
Are you retarded?
I really don't understand how people appreciate all these 80s designs.
Disregard that, I wasn't following the quote chain.
He did offer a counter.
If you want to compare Genesis with Garo, one can contrast the fact that its almost a complete novelty in terms of the main cast and comes off as a generic fantasy setting.
Meanwhile Garo anime works in a medieval setting similar to Genesis because its a prequel story and we get to see its a revenge fueled drama series about the near complete destruction of the Makai Order.
The only shitposter is the one whose bringing up the tokusatsu/live-action series because they want to bait people, as if the source material is bad solely because it was made 9 years ago.
I start to feel sorry for him.
I don't understand. Can''t I like both this and Garo?
Not only that, but Oh Christmas Hitter screen shows major outside corporate ad sponsers, so otaku are unneeded. Not a bad thing, since you can easily tell this is going to be far better than that pandering Vanadis bullshit.
>tfw brown hair and red beard
Shit's weird. People think I actually dye my face pubes.
I like both, who cares.
>shipping of any sort
Please go and stay go
You look trustworthy.
Nobody is going to lie about the anime here. Anons even admitted Garo is good in this thread, Bahamut is better so far. Stop letting your love of the live action show color your views on the anime before its really gone anywhere.
You should read the LN, but it's pretty clear.
Thanks, I try.
Kaiser is a Miracle of the universe
Always the dumbest things catch on on this good-for-nothing board.
What is this Garo even about? I thought it's mecha or tokusatsu.
Did you do this?
Hasn't really caught on at all, it's like 2 guys that spam it sometimes.
Just watch it, it's only got 2 eps out as well.
>Shit's weird. People think I actually dye my face pubes.
Same here, anon. My hair does have some red in it, but the beard is significantly redder. Also have gotten comments asking if I dyed it.
>tfw brown hair and red beard
Is this show any good? I don't wanna try to get into a show just because it's got one cute girl in it. Not again.
Just watch it, it's only 2 episodes in which falls in line with the 3 episode rule.
I pretty sure you won't regret it, it's pretty unique.
Go watch some Kyoani trashes, you dirtbag.
Actually plays the game bros ww@
pretty sure these nignogs are gonna go for a final 10 minute push, really don't want to waste any seals.
Just finished the first episode. I expected badness, considering it's a card game adaptation.
I was absolutely NOT prepared for the sheer quality of it. If they keep it up, this show just might be amazing.
Like holy shit, that first episode was good.
Wait till you finish the second one.
Its even better
What's wrong with 80s designs?
>responding this late
You're pretty late yourself.
So, what do you guys watching beside bahamut?
For now I watch
This season is quite enjoyable.
There were a couple others I need to remember to check out but I forgot.
So far I'm watching the following.
Nanatsu no Taizai
And Inou Battle.
Akatsuki no Yona
Danna ga Nani
Log Horizon 2
What do I win
Oh, and Fate, obviously.
>Akatsuki no Yona
Dropped Terra Formars.
Denki-gai no Honya-san
Hi sCoool! SeHa Girl
Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
Akatsuki no Yona
Nanatsu no Taizai
Sora no Method
Psycho Pass 2
Picked up but yet to watch:
Madan no Ou
Wixoss and Log Horizon once I finished S1.
Danna ga Nani etc etc
Ushinawareta Mirai etc etc
Donten ni Warau
Sora no Method
Am I the winner yet?
Is the Akatsuki no Yona adaption any good? I'm interested because it's shoujo, but it's also by Pierrot.
It's nothing special but it's not boring, though.
Might give it a try then.
The other shoujo I was excited for was Donten ni Warau but people are telling me it isn't very good despite being by Dogakobo.
Literally everything airing this season except Tribe Cool Crew, that patisserie show based on an otome game, and Mushishi since the first season is still on my backlog. 38 shows in total. I usually watch 20-30, so this is way more than I'm used to.
I started and i have no idea what am i doing.
Oh wow, I realized why Amira has only one wing: she's a fucking half-demon.
Everything makes sense now.
I thought that was because she only has one Bahamut seal?
The game is currently right in the middle of a week long brigade raid event.
Basically you team up with friends/order members and take down raid bosses and try to score more points than the other brigade you get placed against each day. If you don't create a team before the event you get placed in an ad-hoc team with others who dont have teams and you play the event with them.
I'd recommend using this time to familiarize yourself with the various items/currencies and have fun with the event while its still going on, the next event will be a brigade questing event so you can level up a ton and use all your cure water.
If you have any specific questions I'm happy to answer
Still no confirmation on how many episodes this will be? I'm hearing 13, 10, 2 cour etc. Nothing concrete.
Tempted to pick up the BDs.
doesnt anyone remember sakamichi no apollon?
>watching PV of the card game
>it's generic as fuck Japanese fantasy with school girls
MAPPA, I'm impressed.
Her current costume sucks, this one was way better.
Agreed. It's a bit misleading that it's featured in the OP too.
Do you guys prefer personalities to be slowly uncovered or revealed like this?
This one was better.
But she's a bare handed fighter.
Why has she got two horns then?
Cutest demon girl.
You forgot based cake.
In this costume, she looks like a Merlin.
I wonder how all the people screaming how this is a manly fantasy anime going to react next week when we get the loli and Cerberus.
Little girls aren't a problem, but I don't like lolis. Cerberus looks like shit, but maybe it won't be that bad.
>Gonna watch Mushishi
Will he be in Bahamut?
Given the fact that she absolutely didn't care about all the holy powers they were shooting at her in ep2 it's even likely that she's a angel/demon hybrid.
Dark Angel Olivia twin tails is still available, so you can get her.
Out of all of the cards I have seen so far I think this one has a good chance of being animated. For a gag scene or whatever.
She may just be too strong for some stupid humans to hurt her.
Reminder of the bonds Favaro and Kaisar share.
Who gives a fuck she is a serious qt3.14159265359 to fuckin 10 dp
If you had told me that this show would have been this good, and people would be reacting this well to it before it aired, I would have called you a liar.
It's just too damn good.
>Sora No Method (Feel Good Show)
>Psycho Pass 2
>Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
This season is good, but selective with its quality. It's nice to see something original amongst all the sequels, remakes, and adaptations.
It was ruined in the horrible subs rip due to Funimation's saturated colors, but her mother is an angel. She's a hybrid Human/Demon/Angel. Hence why she was only Biribiri'd by the magic in EP 2.
I'm really hoping MAPPA handles it well. Everything up until now has a dark comedy fantasy adventure feel to it - I don't want it to suddenly devolve into lolis fighting the protag duo and joining them or some stupid thing like that.
Yeah - I'm tempted to, but I rather have something from the amazing anime rather than the "meh" card game. I'm not even too into card games.
I'd pay big money for horseback crossbow-shooting Favaro, or a badass or really cute Amira fig though.
Favaro x Kaisar BroTP
Also, I forgot the picture. Here ya' go.
We were talking about Garo, not qt3.14 Amira.
>cute girl in the op, appears after Bacchus and clutches a book
>her arm falls off
There's more details in the faces than 98% of all current anime, that's part of the reasons as to why I like it.
I want moe illithids to be in anime. They are so great. And the female rape vikings too.
That PV is about one of the events. It actually had a nice story and would make a good anime.
Not like this one isn't good, but that one would probably get more attention.
She's a necromancer. At least that's what her bounty said. Shame since I was hoping she's an automaton. But necromancer is also great.
This is a card battle kind of game like Valkyrie Crusade, right? I finally had to park that one cause I couldn't keep up with the day to day maintenance much let just sitting down to play it for fun...
It was one of those one episode wonders
I wasn't even impressed by episode 1.
1000h in potatoshop
>tfw blonde hair and dark brown beard
>show based on some shitty stupid card game
what the fuck happened
Dont have time for much else, might pick up more after midterms
I like how they gave Rita pretty much the same expression as in game necromancers.
I hope if eraser or commie will put the karaoke in ep 2.
YES I KNOW
YES I KNOW
I still don't think any of us really know.
It's like MAPPA was given a ton of money, given lisence to the show, and trusted with making the best thing they could.
I feel like if Cygames had put any restrictions on it, it wouldn't have turned out this well.
They must have a ton of freedom and passion with this project.
At least a lot of passion, this animation is great.
Next episode is Koreans.
You guys are really overreacting. It's not like they did something amazing with the story. This anime is exceptional thanks to production values, and these production values are there because of Cygames money.
Story isn't even different in tone of quality than plots you get in game events.
It's interesting how sometimes you can tell whether the staff cares about the property and sometimes they don't and are just mailing it in. "Tokyo ESP" was so obviously mailed in that the inbetween animation was sometimes better than the storyboarding and key animation.
(Gotta love the extended homage to "Pirates of the Carribean" in ep 1.)
So it's okay for faggots to overreact every time Kyoani produce some great animation with overly bland and shitty plot but not when other studios does it it?
I'd disagree. We'll see if it keeps it up of course, but Kaiser, Amira and particularly Favaro already feel distinct/clearly defined and their interactions have been great. The core story might be standard stuff but it's been pulled of with confidence and style so far.
Thing is, money alone would not create characters or events this interesting, adorable, and relatable. Money alone would not lead to music that fits so well with each situation it's used in.
Money alone would not create something so thoroughly enjoyable if there was no passion for the work behind it.
This is a MAPPA anime - I'd go as far as to call it an original. It's borrowing branding and some characters and elements from the game, but it feels like something all its own, with characters who have strengths and weaknesses, and events that make you fall in love with them.
Hence, I agree with
In the event going on right now there is a girl who was kidnapped by goblins when she was a child and raised by them so she sort of acts like a goblin and an elf prince cursed to wear a goblin armor that stinks like a goblin and looks like crap.
Tell me that's not more original than fantasy Elvis and afro Rogue-kun.
>girl who was kidnapped by goblins when she was a child and raised by them so she sort of acts like a goblin
How is that original?
We're not really talking originality though.
The show is taking a fairly normal action-adventure-road journey framework and just doing it really well, which is a lot harder than it seems.
More than generic DnD rogue or generic fantasy knight who lost his fortune?
This anime is great, but stop acting like it's story is something amazing.
If you think originality is the only thing that can make a story interesting then I have no counter argument for you. Nothing made in this century can possibly be amazing for your impossible standard.
In fact, you don't have any reason to live anymore.
Look at all the people screaming how original this anime is. It's not. It's great but there is nothing original about it.
You are actually the first person in this thread to bring it up. Every other mention is about being an original story and one post about the original toku Garo.
Oh dear god, this is how female goblins look in SnB. And they treat male ones like shit too. I want doujins.
They probably haven't watched enough anime or played many JRPGs, then.
You first Bahamut thread or something? You missed all the fags claiming it's the only original anime in the ocean of "moeshit"?
Look at the post you first replied to >>115372560
Look at it hard and find where did it SCREAMS "OH IT'S A FUCKING GREAT ANIME BECAUSE IT'S SO ORIGINAL!"
Got it yet? No? Let me quote that post :
>I still don't think any of us really know.
>It's like MAPPA was given a ton of money, given lisence to the show, and trusted with making the best thing they could.
>I feel like if Cygames had put any restrictions on it, it wouldn't have turned out this well.
>They must have a ton of freedom and passion with this project.
And then you rebutted it with a criticism against the story. As if that post explicitly praised the story. So you're basically saying an anime can't be good without an original plot but just now you said it's great. Make up your mind, nigga.
But nobody said that here. I guess the shitposting is starting.
But this is this thread now, and since you'd have otherwise reached an agreement with the rest of us here ("not original, but it's the execution that matters") you are just trying to force a fight.
I count one or two people saying it's original in this thread. I also can't recall much more than that in the previous threads. Stop making shit up just because you want to bash this anime.
Now THIS is what I call a semen demon
To be fair pretty much all demongirls should be semen demons by nature.
>Those lower vagina bones
How come this seed succubus gets a fig but Amira doesn't?
Because she looks better and is a popular character from the game.
Because the anime started 2 weeks ago.
Well that's just like your opinion man
they better get the thighs right
>Those meaty thighs
I'm confident they will. Angels kooked like dog poop on the official site, but in anime they actually look good.
why are her eyes always so...blurry and inhuman
I have a life saving of $150. Can my broke ass afford this?
To everyone in this thread who has a problem with the anime it could have been really generic if it was anything like some parts of the game from my first impression. I can't tell if I'm having fun or not when I play it.
Imagine if the anime was as generic as the quests in the game. Pic related.
her face looks fat
Because she's not human?
>her face looks fat
How is that a bad thing?
Yeah, not my best post
Not this word again. Anime is also damn generic when you think about it. It's just well executed.
Let's not have a stupid fight over the semantics of the word generic. Trigger the anime though is the definition of generic.
In a bright side, that's only one thing we have to endure from shitposter.
>BUT IT IS GENERIC WESTERN DD ANIMU.
Yeah, we got it. You must think you are only one person who think of this you genius.
Good job. Continue to make more.
What things have actually come out of D&D anyway? Besides Slayers.
This is horrible. I really hope they know what they are doing.
God damnit I wish people could fucking read...
Can you? He got corrected a long time ago.
Better than WH goblinoids being spores.
Ok, answer me with yes/no: Do you believe the story will improve over the time? (That is, evolve from comedy/generic fantasy to gits tier)
I hope it will happen, but for this we need at least 24 episodes.
What's the point of showing the battle between Gods, Demons and the Bahamut if it won't be important to the plot?
To be honest I'm afraid it's going to get worse. Azazel seems to be the boss of the demon team which is already disappointing and everything is going in a really predictable way.
Hopefully yes, but realistically no.
They may end up continuing it if the game gets enough of an increase in users, but in 13 episodes, I'm not sure how big of an impact it will leave.
I'm just enjoying the ride for now - but there's a big chance they will be tripped up on Cerberus' design, and it'll take away from the more serious tone of the show. (make it more generic..)
>but there's a big chance they will be tripped up on Cerberus' design
I wish they would ignore these shitty card designs.
I wanted him to feel bad
Except Cerberus looks much better than Amira's demon form.
Thing is, Amira's Demon form is rather serious in the tone it presents, and it's only been shown for seconds at a time.
Cerberus on the other hand is a fan-service loli by design - how're they going to present that as a proper and mature part of the story line?
Easy. They don't.
Her design is boring and generic as hell. Type demon girl in any booru or Pixiv and you'll get 500 girls that look exactly like her.
It's more serious-looking than Cerberus, which supposed to be a goddamn three-headed dog, not a fucking loli. Amira is just a generic demon, and that's okay.
Pretty much the definition of a fan-service based loli-body-type character.
If they don't fine a way to blend her into things, then it'll seriously hurt the quality of the show. Everything up until now has seemed mature, fun, and interesting.
Then BAM - random barely-dressed loli shows up.
>fan-service loli by design
Retard detected. Opinion invalidated.
I blame Fate for this. It's kind of funny how these moe versions of famous heroes or monsters have become more generic than their traditional look.
Generic is an overuse term. I would say just that hey have become common, and we are used to them, so they do not surprise us anymore.
Japan was doing this since forever. Look at all the female Nobunagas around. Culture of kawaii and all that.
>Japan was doing this since forever
I doubt it was common before the era of anime.
Just whipped this up. (Pic Related)
While I admit that within this universe the character design for Cerberus fits with her demonic affiliation, and her design and body type are not /nearly/ as "loli" as I originally stated, I still have to point out that she's easily the most exposed, clothing-wise, which is where the danger arises.
If MAPPA handles it tastefully, like they've handled everything else - things will be completely fine. If they cave and turn her into a generic service character with no characteristics other than her lack of clothing and puppy mits, then I'll be upset. But I've got trust in MAPPA - they've yet to let me down in this regard.
Plus, after getting a good look at all the characters, I have to say I really like the designs. Favaro and Joanne's especially. Plus, they make good use of the differences between Human / Demon / Angel clothing and aesthetics in their designs.
+1 to whoever planned it for the anime.
>her design and body type are not /nearly/ as "loli" as I originally stated
I think you mean "not loli at all" and "boy aren't I a fucking retard?"
They're damn good designs. Compared to the game designs the angels are pretty smartly unified for one theme, and I love Favaro's earth tones.
isn't the grill second to the furthest right a dude?
Cerberus could work if she was a succubus. But her puppy gloves still look idiotic.
Demon Amira is more exposed than Cerberus and her first fight was nothing but ass shots.
I'm not even sure, it's a goddamn angel.
The girl would look better without that stupid hat.
You have two transvestites and a talking duck in the cast and you are complaining about puppy gloves.
Cast really needs more demon side characters.
She's just a leprechaun.
>a talking duck
It's not even a real character. Puppy gloves look retarded.
you just want more girls to fap to
actually she's a necromancer loli
So who is the villain? Demons or Angels?
I wonder if she'd be this curious/enthusiastic about sex.
Quite likely. http://youtu.be/1yEAs9NvHec?t=1m5s
She has such a petite body type that if she wasn't shown to be that tall (referring to the image), she'd be extremely easy to be marked as a loli type character.
The fact that she's so much taller than the green-clothed girl (that's the necromancer, correct?) means that she can't possibly be confused with a girl of "loli" age.
So yes - I was wrong. Looking at the characters side by side largely remedied the issues I was having with her design.
Agreed. The unified themes for Human / Demon / Angel are very well done.
Yeah, Michael to be exact. (Though it's weird, since Raphael is the blue-haired one, and is distinctly female.)
It could be just used for her teasing her opponents, and it works with her theme as "Cerberus" - but I agree, they're pointless and would be better if replaced by weapons. (Heck, if they were iron/armor punching gloves with cool designs, I'd be behind that 110%)
I'd say they're about equal, and I agree, the fight was largely shots from the rear. Though it felt like they were showing it from the low angle to get a sense of scale and power, rather than doing it for service. (They did the same bottom-up shot with the dance to make it feel more exciting & enthusiastic.
I know that the male angel looks extremely female, but who's the other transvestite you're referencing?
Either that or one less angel. But eh - the cast seems balanced fine for now. Much better than most shows.
Bahamut - I assume. Though the demons don't seem too friendly either. I think every side has its bad people.
my dick is conflicted
the blue haired angel looks like a seed succubus
>She has such a petite body type that if she wasn't shown to be that tall
>Visible and large breasts
>Tall (even without the comparison to shorter people, as you seem to suggest)
Keep the excuses coming. I'm sure that'll make you look like less of a retard.
I just realized that without Amira we don't have a proper demon girl with wings, tail and horns. And even she has just one wing. Really Mappa?
She kind of looks like an elin. I guess people were already brainwashed to see them as normal lolis.
I wouldn't call them large. They seem B-cup at most, and were small enough for me to disregard at first glance. Regardless, she's not a loli, and you were right.
Get off your high horse and stop looking for an argument.
Gabriel don't really look like that in the crappy promo picture, but in anime she looked like a prime semen slurper too.
>She kind of looks like an elin.
If an Elin looked nothing like Elins, yes.
>Get off your high horse and stop looking for an argument.
Calling you a retard is not an argument. It is beyond obvious that, at this point, it's a statement of fact.
1:35 zombies, probably from the next episode.
Amira will sacrifice Favaro's friends and rape Kaisar to retardation.
Welp I know what the fuck I'm ordering next
Yeah, zombies and loli necromancer next episode. I wonder if loli and Elvis are going to join the team. There was some talk in Japan how ep4 is supposed to be amazing.
>ep4 is supposed to be amazing
Show's gonna break my dick.
She's bretty cheap on some sites.
Well, male angels usually look like complete fags so who knows. It may also be a girl that wants to look like a warrior or something.
But anime generally did a nice job with angels.
Why is anime design so much better? It's not that different from this, but she looks really generic and dull on this picture. Is this the face?
Holy fuck I can't wait for next week
What? Anime design is literally the same but just less detailed for easier animation. Even that face she makes is just like in anime.
I don't know, it just looks bad to me. Maybe because it's more detailed.
Lucius, Feena, and Tenna fucking when?
Why is this show popular?
I think is pretty shit, it does nothing new at all and its slow and boring
The fuck is wrong with this board?
Are you guys 14?
And also reading the thread I see a lot of generic praise but when people get into specific it turns out its just mediocre.
Whats going on here?
I believe this is a classic case of people liking something you don't like.
>20,000 Cells of Animation for Episode 1
>Hired Two Professional Dancers for Episode 2 Dance Scene
Just wondering - could anyone post a link to these facts? I've been able to find the one about the hired Trumpeter and the Orchestra recordings, but I'm having trouble finding the links to these facts.
Thanks in advance, anons.
Why didn't you swap the loli and the mustachioed guy around so that jeanne's lance wouldn't have been covered?
Its from Mappa's twitter
Whatever happens I want them to keep the comedy at the same level.
This one? https://twitter.com/MAPPA_Info/with_replies
I can't find the specific tweets. Most of them seem pretty old actually, or related to Znt.
Could you point out the actual tweets?
Sorry, and thanks.
I like the animation, it seems like a lot of heart and thought went into it, the characters are fun, and it made me laugh a lot.
>Expect decent fantasy thing with dragons and knights and shit while shilling their stupid mobile game
>get the fucking COMEDY of the season, maybe year.
Holy Shit, talk about a pleasant surprise
more like none
its just 3 factions at war with each other, no one is in the right in any way. People will side with m-muh humans but its just war.
Favaro is all of the Marx Brothers rolled into one.
Horse was bro.
Will it return?
I was keeping it Male Female Male Female.
Here's a better version with the lance uncovered.
I wonder if Gabriel's wings spasm when she orgasms.
I'll hold them off.
I was so happy when she didn't pull one of these fucking things.
Where? I cant find it.
You forgot one of them
The one who always played the pretty boy straight man
4 wins 0 losses
8 kc soon
Hmpf, I thought he'd be a Dapper Dan man.
Taking a sip and then screeching like a dying cat. It's so horribly cringey.
screenshotting with MPlayer might not be the best idea
Vanadis isn't as good as Bahamut, but its still fine so far, and as much fanservice as there has been, other shows have had far more.
>Not liking the "A-HOOOOEEUUEUEUAUAUEU" sound.
Lmao, what a faget!
I fucking hate that shit as well.
I cant find it either - can you link us?
I respect your opinion.
No idea how can you laugh at it though.
Why is Favaro such a lovable bastard?
Garro means cigarette in a certain language.
Could use more bastard and less lovable
only if you have shit taste and low standards
so what's your AOST candidate?
I didn't know liking haremshit #44535435 is the epitome of high standard nowadays. Sorry.
These threads are getting pretty slow now.
Can't wait for monday then we'll pick up steam again
Slow and long lived is a nice thing every once and a while anon.
It just feels much more lively on airing day
With a fresh supply of reaction images and the like. It's understandable bu it's also nice reopen a page only to find that you didn't miss out on much in the past few hours you leave the computer for whatever.
Cerberus and best horse better get more screen time.
Horse is in horse heaven with Kaisars horse now
We still don't have a source on the
>20,000 Cell Episode 1
>2 Hired Dancers Episode 2
"facts", do we?
No because it's obviously bullshit.
Garo is shit. Dropped after episode 2 while Bahamut has be still interested.
Get some taste you pathetic cunt.
World would be a better place if everyone liked the exact same things.
Her name was Barina Chall Lidfard, you swine.
The father is keeping me from dropping it
He's so handome, I MEAN MANLY
MANLY I MEANT, LIKE ME
Shut up Moss.
tfw he is going to die
I wish this story didn't have MEGAZORD ANGELS AND DEMONS and just stayed as a gag-comedy/sometimes serious low fantasy medieval tale
Characters are cool but I'm not sure if I will like the plot...
At least the characters will remain cool.
I seriously hope this will get a second season or at least another show that takes place in the same universe
He left with Favaro's money
That doesn't stop them from making figs.
Nigga, that can't be a bag full of money. Soldiers ain't that generous.
Grisaia no Kajitsu was released years ago
Amira is a new character from the anime, not an original card char.
He's a horse. What's he gonna do? Spend it all on oats and whorses?
Well it's a nice bag either way
Why do the Nips have such shit taste? I mean, fuck. Sure there's american kids who gobble up every COD game on a yearly basis, but if you put something good in front of them they'll love it.
I want to see horse living it up, cruising around and picking up meres (or stallions, we never checked).
It deserves it.
Shingeki no Bahamut: Horse Gaiden when?
I'm not sure, man. It didn't look much sturdy to me.
Well I found the sources of the 2 dancer rumor and the 20,000 cell rumor.
If this guy could return and say where he got them, that'd be great.
The possibilities are
-Demon/Human hybrid and that seal/holy attack doesn't work on humans
-Demon/God hybrid etc
-Demon/God/Man hybrid etc
-She's innocent and the seal/holy power only works on the evil/guilty
-God Key grants a measure of protection
-She's too powerful
It's confirmed that she's a demon/angel hybrid. Hence why only one demon wing, and why she fell from the sky.
When she achieves her angel form, she'll have only one angel wing as well probably.
I wonder when she'll have control to use both at once?
I'm actually surprised the gods aren't evil.
That's my post. The sources are staff's tweets and 2ch. For music, the composer's site. ;
And just now I found on the site that they recorded scores indeed twice a week.
Could you link the specific tweets? I have people wanting sources on that info - and I myself am also curious.
Judging by the quality of the show, I'm ready to believe all of them, but having proper links would be nice.
I don't understand her character development.
In Ep 1 she was like some mysterious looking quiet chick who turns into a badass demon.
Then it Ep 2 she becomes happy happy joy joy with a side of autism.
she wasn't shitfaced in ep1
She got drunk, anon.
I didn't see the tweets. I just read it on 2ch. Tried searching with the key word "バハムート伝説" (Bahamut legend), but there were too many hits and I can't find which is the original one.
the answer to everything.
In episode 1, she was only down there until she could get to Helheim, then she'd peace out. She didn't have time for anyone's shit, so she didn't bother getting to know them.
In Episode 2, she gets drunk and actually enjoys herself for the first time in god knows how long. After that, she's more comfortable around Favaro.
Also - she got drunk. But I feel like it was mainly her bothering to freakin' talk to people.
Hmn.. well - I guess I can't ask you to go through your history to find wherever you got that info, right?
I guess I'll have to be fine with it being a rumor.
I believe you.
He believe me.
the face of a liar
>inb4 he's actually telling the truth and knows how to get the hellheim
But it's certain they composed to the animation, just like Disney. Usually the order is other way around because it will cost way more. Which means the animation had been completed before they composed the music.
Yeah, that and the Cuban Trumpeter have bee confirmed with links.
The only stuff that's unconfirmed is the 20,000 animation cells and the hired dancers.
The animation in that sequence did look a bit rotoscoped. But that's just me.
Unconfirmed or not, it's hard to not believe after actually seeing it. At first I thought they just blew all money on first couple minutes like shitty Wizard Barristers staff did, but then I got proved wrong. Very, very wrong.
Goddamn does he look sexy like that. I think I got a bit wet.
0/10 would not put a contract spell on
$top. STOP IT NOW.
>You will never get contracted by a semen demon
But anon I want to be the semen demon.
What a coincidence. So do I.
I think you meant once every two weeks.
You are right. My mistake.
Cerberus is 49% off on Amiami right now.
If you want her, now now now's the time right now!
49% off of how much
She is 7k Yen, with 50% included.
that's too much for my budget with shipping and taxes included
I'm sorry man. Just wait another month for the autismbux to roll in?
I ain't fortunate enough to get autismbux, sadly.
I only get my governmentbux which all goes to my rent
Sell foodstamps money for legit money? Usual going rate is 2:1.
I ain't murrican
That opens up a few avenues of exploration that I simply don't have, then.
Did you try turning tricks on the corner?
I think she's just half human. I really doubt she's going to be switching forms or anything.
I think I'd rather be a semen angel. These fluffy wings are just too good.
Aw shit, that actually sounds really good.
I thought maybe she had some relation to that knight because of his reaction to her necklace but maybe that was just a key thing.
When she spoke of her mother, her mother had white, feathered wings.
She may be all three, but my money's on Angel/Demon.
I did a bit of thinking, and I figure a big part of the reason this show is so good is because the fact that it's based off some random card game's lore actually gives the writer and director lots of creative freedom. They're actually getting the best of both worlds: the freedom of being able to basically do your own original story in a vaguely predefined world, while also reaping the benefits of source material popularity.
More card game anime, please.
Also, nude Amira when? I'm waiting, MAPPA
She was naked when she first showed up I thought.
She is naked in the first episode, anon.
those fucking lips
Wh--Okay, I guess that counts. I'd still like some clearer, more servicey shots though.
look on Pixiv then
Not him, but Pixiv doesn't have much thus far.
I can appreciate the art style, but regardless, my dick would have exploded if they'd used mel/a's designs.
1000000000/10 would fuck puppy mittens and all.
I still can't tell if they're alive or her tulpas
This is an evil demon from hell goddammit. Don't get tricked by her devil charm.
this card was such a good fap
The funny thing is she's powerful as fuck despite looking like that. Should be easily strongest out of the three demons in anime unless Mappa ignored the lore.
yeah, but snb is a funi rip.
Calling it now: Kaisar will find the horse, and it'll be his new steed since he lost the other one.
a noble steed for a noble knight
guys was it just me or is the ED animated by MOTHERFUCKING YOSHIDA AKIHIKO, because if it is I might lose my marbles.

I heard Sayo Yamamoto
still trying to convince a couple of my friends to watch this. Can I get a repost of the webms of amira and favaro dancing, amira shaking like a dog, the bridge scene or the rooftop/water wheel swordfight scene?
Nigga that's kawaii.
are you ready for necromancer-chan's dark backstory next episode
the duck scene too showed her more innocent side as well.
I think what they're going for is that she's really just a child.
Why does it has to be dark
>the horse takes him straight to Amira
this horse, man
Horse is a credit to its race.
I trust in Favaro. Only if Favaro makes fun of their puppies i'll be satisfied, or else i'd feel deceived.
Do you think she'll join the party or will she be just another bounty collected?
She is in the OP, so she can't be just a villain of the week.
I quit drinking 10 months ago. I miss this feel.
>Lusting after Amira
She's a demon you heretics.
>Horrible & Uneeded CGI
Totally different from SnB, right?
>you will never have a demon waifu who gets off on being blasted with holy magic
>we know her card
>we can tell exactly how powerful she is
>its implied Hades does.
Well yeah. Do you know literally anything about Greek myth?
Amira was 2lewd in episode 2.
All my other shows are cute/slice of life stuff. This is the only show that's good enough I like it despite not caring for action or fantasy stuff in general.
>What's the point of showing the battle between Gods, Demons and the Bahamut if it won't be important to the plot?
So they went from Italy to Spain? Because that was Spanish music. But lutes (visually, though the audio was guitar) and and a tambla? What the hell is up with this world?
She's part angel so it should be fine.
It's more that they are incorporating things from different countries for their made up fantasy land.
>Amira and Favaro have to get on Kaiser's family boat to go to Helheim
The music is full Cuban, with laúd and cajón. I think they don't care too much about being realistic to actual countries. They did have norse runes in Italy, after all.
NEXT EPISODE WHEN
for fucks sake
it's a short-ass show so she might just be there for one ep
I don't care if it's generic, this would have been so much better than Ronald Fucking McDonald.
i'll fuck you up
The truth hurts, anon.
you forgot cerberus
