Happy Birthday, Itsuki.
We are sorry we couldn't protect your smile.
Is Itsuki the cutest thing in the universe?
[ ] Yes.
[ ] Hell yes!
Happy birthday Itsuki.
Did they set Itsuki's birthday right after the airing date of the maximum suffering episode on purpose?
>start rewatching episode 4 now that FFF released it
>be surprised when Itsuki suddenly starts to speak
this is advanced suffering
Itsuki looks always so fluffy.
And if smiling could heal she would already have saved the entire world.
They will never be happy again
We will never have fuunibyou again.
Finished watching YuYuYu 9.
The elder sister's got good face there. Good going!
Thanks for everyone watching every week
Now, for everyone who has been recording from the first episode and watch it again, you can enjoy it even more towards the final episode.
> The strong point of original anime is (I/We) can prepare lots of set up. #yuyuyu
Just look at how soft her hair is, I just want to platonically brush it every morning.
>7 episodes in
>SUFFERING train finally drop by
>top 50 in two weeks
Nips are horrible people.
We already know what's going to happen for the most part anywy. Tougou's going to attempt something hilariously retarded in episode 10 and Yuuna's gonna stop her. Then Karin is going to do something stupid in episode 11, and Yuuna will stop her. Finally, Yuuna will stop all the suffering in episode 12, either by sacrificing herself or just by being the same old awesome Yuuna (probably the latter).
We just don't know the details, but the overall story seems straight forward enough.
Madoka and her friends had it coming.
Fucking Taisha sacrificing uninformed little girls on the other hand. I guess from now on I should be more careful in watching SoL.
Hes most likely referring to the Yuusha play where they talk about who the demon king is not evil but they fought him anyways. So the vertex will turn out to be a force trying to do good.
Not really, it's more that the show turned out to be much more interesting now like this.
If it would just had continued with 7 episodes of pure SoL with nothing happening even I would have been disappointed.
What do you mean?
Yuuna and Tougou know, and they told Fuu about it. Yet Yuuna stopped Fuu, and neither Karin nor Itsuki are the types to get worked up like Fuu. Tougou is planning something though, but with her deep nationalism she's even less likely to rebel.
So much suffering, yet such beautiful designs.
And when are they gonna reveal all that? Episode 10 is about Tougou going retard and 11 is supposedly focused on the irrelevant tsundere. If there is twist, they'd have to reveal it in episode 12, but that would be a mess. It'd probably lead to a rushed ending.
At this point I'm not expecting much. Probably the Vertex are just what they seem to be, the product of the evil virus that killed the rest of the world.
So this is how american television looks like, huh. Amazing.
>this is the same person who tries to start NTR shitposting every thread
It has to be because this is by the same author as AgK. That fanbase is worse than KLK's. And that's saying a lot.
That's old data.
>>117959052 is the updated version.
I know I should really avoid drawing Madoka parallels, but it seems the last episode ended the way Mumi's breakdown could've ended if everybody tried to settle things amicably instead of fucking demapping one another. It was great.
Mami's breakdown was shit.
One news, and without confirmations or anything, she just pulls out a gun and shoots her friend.
This was an overall explosion of bottled up sentiments.
>the way Mumi's breakdown could've ended if everybody tried to settle things amicably instead of fucking demapping one another
Except everybody only realized Mami was having a meltdown after she had already killed Kyouko.
No, the problem was that in Madoka they were all standing there transformed with weapons out, so Mami shot immediately. Here, Fuu was completely alone and was intercepted by Karin who was ready to stop her.
Reminder that Karin threw her swords backwards when trying to stop Fuu.
Karin did nothing wrong.
Goddess forms and a powered up Madoka aside, Mami is the strongest and most experienced among them in any timeline. At that point, I doubt they could have taken her even if they were ready for her.
The best thing about this scene is how it Aires on the same fucking day that the tsunami happened. Imagine all the nips which were shocked by the whole "no option but to die now" business and later found themselves facing death
>One news, and without confirmations or anything, she just pulls out a gun and shoots her friend.
Homura told her, she didn't believe it, she had her confirmation when Sayaka ended up being a
witch as usual.
I think it's mostly because before you were never sure what direction the show is going to take. Nips love balance, they often make their buying decisions after just few weeks. I can see why they were hesitant to spend 60$ on two episodes when they have no idea if they'll even like the show after it ends.
For me it was 10/10 since day one but at the same time I was constantly worried it might fail spectacularly next week, there were just so many things it could have done wrong, things which many shows in the past couldn't do well but thankfully YuYuYu manages to defend itself. Still the unease wouldn't leave until the latest episode. There are many unanswered questions but I finally got some sense of 'safety' about show's future quality.
Mami breakdown was shit because there was no build-up. One moment Mami is all moment and then she's all WE ARE MONSTERS GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWR
Here you see worried as fuck at first but still truly hopeful about getting better but then her hopes are slowly and slowly crushed and you see her struggling to think everything will be daijobou but then Sonoko happens and even then she still wants to believe in Taisha and that they will recover but then Taisha continues to lie on her face and she finally breaks down under the pressure and guilt when she figures out Itsuki's dream of being a singer.
Just because both are "breakdown" doesn't mean they were the same.
>B-But same colors!
Go choke on a dick nigga. Do you think Madoka invented mahou shoujo colors and tropes or what?
I think you're trying too hard to cling to the idea that there's a correct way to tell a story.
There was 'no build-up', but it was well established that Mami is an emotionally fragile girl who masks it with a mature and composed face. While it was a surprise, it wasn't completely unexpected.
To be fair, Mami's breakdown was just a detail in a flashback. If you're going to compare (which I think it's stupid but whatever), you should compare it to Sayaka's breakdown, which is as gradual in execution as Fuu's, while being more plot relevant.
Higher. The peak still has yet to come based on past episodes. The prediction already rose up by ~400 points compared to week ago. Not to mention v1 will soon be going on sale which will provide additional bump.
What's even more important, other volumes are also at better positions and their prediction now lined up with v1. 3k average is very real at the moment and if the show keeps being as good, it can only get better.
The rank itself doesn't mean much but if it's going to stay high for a longer period of time, it's great. The only thing worrying me is that we most likely won't get wk2 data for v1 because goddamn Christmas always being clusterfuck of high selling releases.
>but it was well established that Mami is an emotionally fragile girl who masks it with a mature and composed face
When exactly was this established? Up until her death in ep 3 she had that "mature and composed face" but never really showed a weak side, she just was a lonely girl who wanted to have friends. Then in ep 10 we saw like 2 or 3 timelines of her still being "mature and composed" but suddenly she's crazy and kills Kyouko just because.
Well, yeah. A something having a certain degree of build-up is the proper way of telling a story. We usually call "asspull" when something happens and there's next to none foreshadowing or build-up.
To be fair Fuu and Mami breakdowns can't also be compared considering Mami was a one-note part of a flashback that was not dedicated to her unlike Fuu's which we've seen develop through many episodes. It's silly to compare them in any manner besides superficially.
> Up until her death in ep 3 she had that "mature and composed face" but never really showed a weak side, she just was a lonely girl who wanted to have friends.
iirc she straight up says so to Madoka on episode 3
Oh he finally finished it, been waiting for this.
>Well, yeah. A something having a certain degree of build-up is the proper way of telling a story. We usually call "asspull" when something happens and there's next to none foreshadowing or build-up.
I'll revise what I said.
While there is a 'correct' way to tell a story, there isn't a single 'correct' way to tell a story. Other than bashing it for the sake of bashing it, which is becoming an increasingly popular thing to do, there's nothing wrong with Mami's breakdown.
For getting a week 2, it all comes down to how much the finale drives sales. This past week was just a bit less busy as Christmas week will be, and the threshold was 403 for BDs.
But Yuuna was supposed to be the hero!
Not quite what I said, let's not look at things in black and white here, but yes, compared to the Fuu breakdown it wasn't that emotional. It wasn't even the emotional highpoint of that episode by a long shot.
My predictions after reading those WW2 posts:
Taisha are simply people between a rock and a hard place.
Shinju-sama is simply a unthinking source of power.
The heroes will have to continue fighting, but will take casualties (in terms of fighting power) and eventually Vertices will slip through and kill Shinju-sama.
(Bonus points if Yuuna unambiguously tells Tougou she loves her before the end).
However, after the barrier falls they don't die because the outside world has changed in the 300 years Shinju-sama has been protecting them. Their isolated world has "ended" but not in a total annihilation sort of way.
The final segment of the last episode is them adjusting to life as war veterans after a conflict.
We really get around in these threads
>Shinju-sama is simply a unthinking source of power.
Shinju-sama is intelligent enough to weaken the barrier in a single place so to direct the enemy through a predictable route. It might be thanks to Taisha directions though.
Well I can quote what you said
>Yes, but because they chose to do it that way it lacked any emotional impact besides "Holy shit, what's going on?"
>it lacked any emotional impact
And of course Fuu's breakdown was more emotional because the audience was building up for several episodes now.
There are many reasons not to compare the two. Fuu's breakdown is a pivotal that took many episodes to lay out and execute while Mami's breakdown is just one short segment of a much larger story, even within the same episode.
>Taisha are simply people between a rock and a hard place.
>Shinju-sama is simply a unthinking source of power.
I'd be fine with this, I'm tired of the religious group being always evil just for the sake of it.
I want them to show someone from the Taisha talking to the girls and showing how they are actually trying their hardest to find ways to improve the hero system for them but because of how the Shinju works that's all they can do so far and the Vertex being actually what they say they are.
The Taisha's next idea is sacrificing their own bodies whenever the heroes use their Shinju powers. The girls now have to deal with the reality of harming other humans every time they fight, even if those humans are willing to do it.
I don't think you need to worry about her ever growing up
>Pic still forgets the fact that Tōgō and Inubozaki were respectively the name of the japanese foreign minister who signed the declaration of war against the USA and a town north of where one of the first japanese ship sunk because of an american submarine.
>Tōgō was the name of the japanese foreign minister who signed the declaration of war against the USA
Now I want to see a group of Yuushas using big 80s-style mobile phones, Gordon Gekko style.
Her smile is fine...it's just that we couldn't protect her voice.
Before the suffering happened, I thought it's a terrible magical girl show...but still a decent enough slice of life but now I've really finally realize what they were doing the whole time.
Her smile is a lie
