I'll miss these threads with you guys. No matter how annoying and autistic some of you were.
wasn't expecting much from the OVa, but besides maybe the dark life fiber copies, Mako explaining every joke and the giganto scissors, that was actually pretty good. better than the actual finale, for sure.
Who is subbing it?
Is crunchy/HS releasing it even if it's an ova from the last bluray?
If you watched the show you are alsready spoiled, trigger created that episode with a good 50% of reused scenes and a few palette swaps.
It also confirm Satsuki to be forever neutered and useless.
Some of you said you wanted a season 2.
I ask you, would you really want a season 2? When they both hit 20 years old bad things are bound to happen to at least one of them.
Could you endure a different protagonist killing them or them pulling a Ragyo in the end?
For whatever reason, Inu got a bunch of great scenes in this:
>"Sorry guys, my computer is hacked."
>His DTR is basically just a big computer tower on wheels.
>His fight with Dark Inu is just the two of them typing furiously on their keyboards, trying to hack each other.
>He hacks the DTRs to run on autopilot, which upsets Aikuro.
>He beats Dark Inu by pressing his power button, and then breaking his custom Tailor's Dagger (which is just three keyboards on a stick) over his head.
Please tell me there's lot of Ryuko denimbutt in it.
I love both. Asses in jeans and Ryuko.
Sorry, she's back to Episode 1 clothes.
who let Michael Baye into the animation studio
OVA IN A NUTSHELL: Gama, Inumuta and Uzu went their own ways (Gama is going back to his hometown, Uzu is becoming a pro kendoman, Inumuta is going to college, Iori is going to college). Ryuko and Mako were put in a new school because they're second years. Nonon (who is inheriting Jazukure Industries) and Houmaru joined Satsuki's new plot to create a kind and beautiful world, which I'm goint to interprete as WORLD DOMINATION.
There seems to be a lack of best girl. Guess it's time to post some Mako.
>everyone goes their separate ways
>every character not living together "Friends" style
>Gama leaves without ever telling Mako how he feels
>Create a kind a beautiful world
Yeah that doesn't sound malevolent or anything at all.
>She overrides Hououmaru's control of the School-Bot and makes it do the pose
Oh Mako, still unwittingly warping reality with your immense Comic Relief powers I see.
Satsuki confirmed future villain.
I was of hoping for some kind of accident like Satsuki hopping into her bed at the mansion only to find out Ragyo had hooked it up to force fuck some life fibers into her body on her 20th birthday.
Oh yeah, I'd forgotten the best part about this OVA: She wasn't in it.
No ghost like Senketsu got, no flashback, no usage of her theme, not even a mention, just perfect.
Why can't Precure have a happy ending like this?
Not exactly, but still leaves everything out in the air, which was intented.
Shippers just should shut the fuck up and ship whatever the hell they want. Nakashima said so.
>Liking a crappy show for little girls
Still funny even after all this time.
I don't even watch Precure, just wondering how it end.
Also, we are in a KLK thread. Why are you implying this show has a lick of maturity behind by bashing some other kid show?
Saved this 4 months ago. I think, it's a good time to post it.
Heh... strange memories on this nervous night on /a/. Two months since KLK aired? Three? It seems like a lifetime, or at least a Main Era - the kind of peak that never comes again. The KLK threads back then, I think, were a very special time and place to be a part of. Maybe they meant something. Maybe not, in the long run... but no explanation, no mix of words or images or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and space on the internet, whatever it meant...
There was madness in any direction, at any hour. If not after the stream, then after the preview or subs or down in the CYOAs to the drawthreads or hell even the Nui threads...You could strike sparks anywhere. And despite all the flak we got, there was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning...
And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of the Old and Busted. Not in any mean or militant "waifu war" sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave.
So now, less than six months later, you can walk into any KLK thread on /a/ or /c/ or /tg/, and with the right kind of eyes, you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.
>We need another series like this.
Preferably before Christmas
The funny thing is, I actually quite like Nui now. She's no Satsuki, but who is?
Eh, the slow, brutal, torturous death I had in mind for her would've been way too edgy, especially after Ryuko had just escaped the grip of Coldfibers. We needed something to "take the edge off," so to speak.
requesting that gif with Satsuki eyebrows-job if you know what I mean.
>Not even putting "Don't lose your way" at the end of the post
HOW COULD YOU FORGET THIS?
does anyone else suddenly want a cart racing game?
maybe when Arcsys is done shitting out persona and blazblue shit
Are Nonon's eyes different colours in this shot, or is it just me?
EVEN IF I DID CRY I WOULD WIPE AWAY MY OWN TEARS
I know that this is kind of a bitch complaint, but the sword needs to be about twice that size.
Imaishi trashed the script for TTGL and KLK and re wrote a lot of them himself
Take a wild fucking guess which parts of each show were written by him. Nakashima is a pretty damn good writer, but Imaishi fucking George Lucases it every single time and it's getting really old
RULES OF NATURE!
she's a life fiber hybrid is why.
I was under the impression she'd always been absorbing them since day one, hence Senketsu noting that she'd gotten stronger in the Osaka Arc.
>that file name
that makes me wonder, if he cant see things on tv screens, can he see ink on paper?
or, i wonder if he can still see the microscopic levels of ink or the indentations on the paper
Well I could make a lot of guesses as to what Imaishi changed. I'd want to see Nakashima's original script though. I don't doubt it would be better, the guy's a fucking playwright for christ sake.
Writing for TTGL still seemed a lot better and more measured than KLK though. I don't really have any major complaints for TTGL.
I wouldn't say I like her, but I certainly appreciate her contribution to the show. Tl;dr she's the character you love to hate:
The long version is that she was everything Ryuko was not; girly, sophisticated, fancy, won fights with almost no effort, uncaring toward others, etc. She was jarring to the point that she looked like she belonged in an entirely different show, tossed a wrench into everything we'd come to expect. As her despicable acts piled up; killing Ryuko's father, denying Uzu the rematch we all wanted to see at the time, driving Ryuko to madness, disguising herself to trick Ryuko, shredding Senketsu, and so on, our hatred of her grew to it's peak. Then finally, after so many episodes of her getting away with all this bullshit, including one time she was going to lose but got bailed out by Ragyo, we finally got that comeuppance: She lost her arms, the perfect little princess demeanor was irreparably shattered, it was her turn to have a breakdown, and it was so, so satisfying.
>several strands of hair are literally glowing
>NO SHE DIDN'T!
you can ever see the two or three strands of hair on her had from what remains after she cut them
The flowers were food all along. Also, tumblr + shipper faggotry.
I think that might've been beyond him, but who knows. The closest thing we have to judge by is that he could tell the Takarada Bucks weren't Bank of Japan notes just by touch.
>Inumuta is going to college, Iori is going to college
So OTP is saved.
I wouldn't even say that it's love to hate thing with me. Even though I was waiting for the breakdown, and loved it when it happened, I was always pretty much in a mode of "Man, I can't wait to see what bullshit she pulls next." She's also good in the sense that she'd the literal opposite of Ryuko, like you mentioned. Had she not been flushed away as a baby, they'd probably have been peas in a pod.
I'm not a Gamako shipper, but's that an incredibly flimsy cop-out if I ever heard one. Who the hell eats flowers?
>Writing for TTGL still seemed a lot better and more measured than KLK though. I don't really have any major complaints for TTGL.
That's because he had other Gainax staff breathing on Imaishi's neck.
>not posting the translated version
People used the same shit for Madlax 10 years ago. Add the light reflection to every hair would be too complicated for such a short scene.
i would be retarded to give her glowing hair in a show with a person with glowing hair, unless they meant something about it.
light reflection is all fine and dandy until you realize that there's a strand of hair on the side of her head that isn't facing the sun that is glowing.
even her light changed to purple when she was talking to Rei, shes starting to get rainbow shit.
Looks like I'm being proven all sorts of wrong today.
My brother. Have some more.
Want it, i don't want to be alone at this
I will follow you forever, Satsuki-sama.
God damn it I was really hoping for more sisterly love in this OVA. Please let there be Parallel Works with one based around that.
Afraid I don't have too much, but I'll try to dump what I can.
I wonder how much trouble Gamagoori had fending off all the boys hitting on her in middle school
>Who the hell ears flowers?
No idea, I think he just dropped off the map. I hope that Trigger hired him personally.
He probably didn't have much trouble, it was most likely just an every day job.
Didn't Yukari Tamura say she was in the studio for the OVA. Did she sing the ED or something what the fuck?
I'm just sad there was no Nui at all.
I like that Mankanshoku's have basically fully adopted Ryuuko.
I literally started crying after watching the OVA
It's been a real blast, /a/
The void in my soul grew a little bigger today...
It looks like they moved onto Ping Pong?
He's a six-foot tall guy in Japan, and she has a katana. It couldn't have been the hardest job in the world.
is there a PV coming next month?
Hup status rising.
The scissors only came back because Senketsu became THE UNIVERSE and sent them to Ryuuko.
>Inb4 Senketsu accidentaly sent Ragyo's sparse fiber on earth and they're slowly infecting the earth
I really loved that artist. I remember when anons were thinking that he was part of the KlK staff. Also, he drew one of the best Sanageyamas.
If Senketsu's life fibers still have influence, can Ragyo's? What if there's a rainbow star out there playing Blumankranz?
Satsuki's probably super meta, using the best Pokémon with the dirtiest movesets she can to take down her mother. Mega Gengar and such. Ryuko bumbles along and pulls together a team you wouldn't think works, but pulls out the wins anyway.
Nui a fine, stop overreacting.
Senketsu didn't absorb anything from Ragyo herself when she offed herself. Uh oh.
You don't tease that shit in the fucking guide book several months prior, just to make it about random merch. That and there's merch of every shape and form already released or announced.
We got figures,statues,figmas,nendos,keyrings,phone cases, t-shirts, artbooks, snacks, posters, hats, hell your mom is probably KLK merch at this point.
I totally forgot about this one, thanks. Hope it isn't a Nendo.
No when they already have other projects to do.
I wouldn't get your hopes up. Gurren Lagann only got a DS game and a handful of Super Robot Wars appearances.
>Episode is a retelling by her
>Makes herself the protagonist
>Everyone she doesn't like is drawn in a crude, insulting manner. (Ragyo is always beautifully drawn and fluidly animated, while Ryuko is chicken scratch that just snaps between key frames.) It gets even worse around parts where those people did bad things to her. She rewrote those parts to come out in her favor of course
>All the voices are herself doing impressions, same deal with the art
Now that I'd actually like to see.
Does it not work like American schools, where some kids have their birthdays over the year? So second years would be 16 - 17 and then third years would be 17 - 18 (Uzu and Inu were both said to be 18 in that April Fool's news article, for example)
She is pretty cool when she's actually getting some screentime.
>tfw no real tsumugu+aikuro vs rei fight
>tfw no ridiculous tacticool rei fighting against aikuro's shady asspull acupuncture and tsumugu's balls of steel and prep time
fuck this gay earth
Well, that fucking sucked.
But it didn't discredit Mako x Gama
so as far as anyone's concerned, it happens in the future.
Now its time to get hyped for the Garagantia OVA.
>Not showing your resolve and defeating her anyway.
Alright, I'm out of Satsuki and Gama pics. This one's only getting in cause I think it's funny.
hey /a/ what's wrong with http://underwater.nyaatorrents.org/
it's not loading
Mako was born dumb,Ryuko was to busy kicking ass or angsting to ever learn,doesn't help that her teacher was a dude who loved to expose himself at random moments. Oddly enough both will still get a better education compared to american society students.
Looks like there's an offer for the BDMV on U2. No idea how long it's going to take for it to be approved, though...
Anyway, if there's anyone here with the BD who can rip the OVA .m2ts (a BD drive, Windows and DVDFab HD Decrypter will do the job), you can PM me on IRC, I'm Daiz on Rizon. Or if you're IRC incapable, I can also get in touch via e-mail if you leave one here.
yes we did, nin like episode 1 we say the board of directiors and some other teachers who were scared shitless over Satsuki and kinda sad they couldnt do anything to stop her from allowing boxer guy to dip mako in oil
its gone for good
now we must use the 2nd best site
>so as far as anyone's concerned, it happens in the future.
Not to ruin your parade tripfag, but it left in the open. Especially now that Nakashima told the fans to ship whatever they want. Gamakofags can believe it if they want.
Inumata is the same age as Gamagoori
She met Inu when she was a first year middle school student and he was a third year middle school student.
She met Gamagoori when he was a third year middle school student and she was a first year middle school student.
Nonon is the same age as Satsuki.
And since Monkey is graduating with them, then he's probably the same age or older.
Are you going to release the BD batch at some point?
So nothing permanent?
Tell me it's nothing permanent.
We've lost too much this year already.
That's actually kind of cool having no canon pairings and just telling the fans think what they want and form their own conclusions. Romance in a show that does not require it just causes problems.
Worst case scenario we just move to a different place
It's dead forever anon.
You can thank Japanese copyright law.
Enjoy your torrents while you can on what few websites are still standing. Come this time next year all we'll have left are streaming services.
>going to be waiting until 3-4am in the morning for Daiz to upload subs
I can get behind that even if it feels a little chicken shit, but I get aggravated at people that are so vehemently against romance of any kind that they completely ignore when it's done right or is a part of a character's motivation
People who say Gama doesn't even care about Mako beyond her being a student, for example
You're basing that off Inumuta's flashback, right? It had the wrong date in the aired version. He met Satsuki three years before the series, same as Uzu, and they were all third years in middle school.
None of these really seem like legit reasons for all the shit talking. Isn't he the guy who helped bring us subs first consistently while the series was airing?
I am kind of wondering what the announcement will be. We got figures and drama CDs all the time without any major announcements so I guess it's something different. But I also know they won't do a second season or anything.
Maybe another OVA or some manga spin-off like those of TTGL.
You can search ?? on pixiv if you haven't already. They got a bunch of fanart near the end of the series, strangely.
All it took was months of being an irrelevant joke for being a Reifag to pay off. Fuck yes.
>>when you realise rei was the only one apart from ragyo to wound her
I'm guessing it'll go up for preorder soon and be released at the first few months of 2015.
normal clothes/senketsu Figma when
I do not want to pay Rah prices
>we finally got that comeuppance: She lost her arms, the perfect little princess demeanor was irreparably shattered, it was her turn to have a breakdown, and it was so, so satisfying.
too bad the last episode starts with this scene, showing that infact Nui is stronger than ever, she still toys with Ryuuko and Ryuuko can´t do anything against her anymore, and that is something real bad about KLK, when character overcome an obstacle or there is a scene where it shows how they gorwn, in a later episode something happen that made meanigless that previous accomplishment or character development.
I still think Nui would be better as final boss than Ragyoo, especially after how the Ragyoo vs Ryuuko fight was so personal for Ryuuko, Ryuuko and Ragyoo barely interacted with each other for the whole show so the final fight ended really meh in comparison of Ryuuko and Nui, where both character were more similar and interacted way more, Nui could try to convince Ryuuko to join her by telling her that a place in the human world now that she is no longer a human, and even at end the fight Nui could kill herself just to not let Ryuuko have her vengeance.
>bring us subs
There's no such thing as independent fansubs anymore, except what happens occasionally with SYD OVAs. Every group steals from Crunchy with a few tweaks to the script. And of course, Daiz loves to quash independent fansubs with a passion. He says they will never work because apparently nobody has the right amount of work ethic besides him, and it's always a self-fulfilling prophecy.
>Get the nendo
already have her.
>or the prize figure.
the what now?
>no figures of the only good character in this show
Why even bother, she was one of the multiple characters that got completely wasted. Just like the others, she could've been something great and ended up being absolutely meh. Although in her case it happened much later.
I've forgotten my pixiv password so I'm throwing a line out in danbooru, but I'll have a look, thanks.
Brothers! It's not over yet!
Shouldn't be in any rush to get it subbed, you're not missing anything interesting.
I WANT THIS THOUGH
>Ryuuko + Mako nendos, + Ryuuko Senketsu fig shipped
Oh boy now to wait to pay an extra £25 because "We handled your parcel!" I fucking love the UK!
This. I want this.
>there will never be a prequel detailing ragyou's time in the military and her eventual downfall into obsession with immortality, leading her to become a life fiber monster
why even live?
