Highlight of the episode was this. Just what is she doing?
Also, new chapter soon. We get to see Krul again finally.
I finished mathroning the entire anime and there are some things I don't get.
Why are the vampires riding in helicopters? Why can't they just fly or teleport? Why are the stray humans going over to the main human city? Why didn't they fire at the big helicopter with the bombs when they can take down the other helicopters? Why is there no "shield weapon"? Why can't the just nuke the vampire city? Were the Horasman Apco not made by the vampires? Why did Yu and Kimizuki have to go through the entire trial with the demons again to power up? It was the same shit as before with the demons trying to trick them. Why doesn't Mika just drink animal blood and go join Yu? Why is everyone acting like vampires are normal? I mean, before the virus there was like no mention of them, but during the virus everyone wasn't surprised.
What? So far nearly everyone who is an important character has been gray.
Yuu just wanted to kill vampires and now all he cares about is the group he's found. Probably going to kill anyone who stands in that way now once factions are formed.
Mika literally gives two shits about everyone and only cares for Yuu. He's neutral as fuck.
Guren is about to ally with the vampires his company just died trying to fight. Apparently he kept this a secret even from his childhood allies. He might becomes enemies to Yuu.
Kureto wants humanity to succeed by any means necessary. His intentions are very understandable unless he was lying the whole time.
Shinya is currently struggling on what is right and it's hard to see if he'll still go with Kureto, Guren, or side with Yu.
Etc, etc. Nearly all the characters so far have been anti-heroes and anti-villains. It's a lot more gray than most characters from anime/manga, and it's probably the only reason why this battle shounen is interesting.
Don't you mean Mahiru? And it's doubtful Krul will be an enemy for much longer when Mahiru is forcing cooperation with her and Mika is telling Yuu all about his cool vampire mom.
Having an "understandable intention" doesn't stop someone from looking like a pure evil villain. Sure he wants to save humanity but he also wants to be the one to rule everyone. We've seen him torture Yuu's friends, abandon his troops and now this, whatever this is. He's more like a tyrant or dictator now.
None of the vampires (villains) have been shown to be gray either. They're sadistic monsters. Only Krul seems like she has more going on but we haven't been shown that yet.
Despite "possession" I don't really feel Guren is just being controlled. Unless I'm missing things from the LN which I haven't read, he seems to be following Mahiru's plan of his own will, half-hearted or not rather than just being possessed. Seems to me he himself is pulling strings along with Mahiru together.
But you're only painting Kureto as black. He technically isn't.
Kureto would be black cliche evil if he was torturing for the giggles, his only ambition being steeping on others just for power. He even specifically speaks about what evil is, saying he's willing to sacrifice lives but it's all to achieve humanity being at the top. As long as there is an end goal and vision, he doesn't consider taking ruthless steps as evil.
It's hard to see why he's killing of the Moon Corps. I have no doubt when he finally does get killed off by Guren or Shinya, he's likely going to be portrayed in a sympathetic light. Pure black villains aren't given sympathy or the idea that what he's doing isn't wrong. I sure as hell would consider supporting him; if he's actually being truthful.
Shinoa being acknowledge as a main character for once
You mean in the anime?
Dunno maybe because they're going on a suicide mission where his all squad can die in less than a second and there's this retarded bitch playing around, arriving late and making jokes. It's not lokr he has something personal for them, he just doesn't want everyone to get killed because some kids werr playing around.
They're an army mate, Shinoa was pretty dumb for playing around like that. I don't think you realize how powerful nobles are but don't worry you'll understand when you see crowley in a few episodes.
She's as much of a main character as the rest of her squad(not being sarcastic, they all are)
But main character doesn't mean much.
Shinoa is just Yuu's waifu and she's popular that's why.
There's been quite a few pieces of evidence pointing at Guren not being on Mahiru's side. Particularly during the previous chapter when Ferid mentions how Guren is a Namanari, and how Mahiru forcefully takes over to do her own thing when Guren was gonna direct the vampires towards Kureto.
I never argued that he wasn't evil. He's just not pure black evil as you say.
Can you really say Kureto is on the same level, as say, Palpatine from strictly the first three Star Wars films, where his character is basically dark side evil emperor with no motivation besides wanting to be in charge and enjoying suffering for the sake of evil? Or the jobbing arrogant noble vampires that you were complaining about?
His head is messed up. For the most part Guren thinks he is the one in control, thinks he's doing it for the humanity. But it's actually Mahiru-oni leading him to do what it wants without him realizing. So it's not like he's doing something wrong on purpose. Something tells me this is going to end with Guren killing himself because he won't be able to ever be free from it.
The real question is, is Mahiru-oni in cahoots with Kureto? Or is it against Kureto and went to Krul to ask for help?
>most of humanity is happy to have
Being afraid of him and bowing down their heads is not the same as being happy. In fact we know it's the opposite. No one likes him but it's not like they have the guts to go against him.
I doubt it's really like that since it's mentioned she only has control of his actions when they switch.
>is Mahiru-oni in cahoots with Kureto?
Fuck no. Everything she's done has been for the sake of fucking over the Hiiragi house and being together with Guren. The only Hiiragis she'd ever have anything to do with are Shinoa and Shinya.
I don't know if he enjoys others' suffering but he certainly doesn't mind it. He was doing experiments on that guy's imouto behind his back too. I don't think inflicting that kind of cruelty on others can be justifiable. His end goal is mostly to be supreme dictator so I think it would be just as bad as being ruled by vampires.
And yes the noble vampires are also terrible save for maybe Krul.
Not really, she is relevant for both Yuu/Mika and Hiiragi/Guren plot, other are just tagging along as family they don't really relevant much except being family members and gets many screentime
> In fact we know it's the opposite. No one likes him
In fact, you don't and are making things up. Their family is a cult that lasted for 1200 years. Hated tyranny never last that long. The Hiragi family treats their loyal followers well.
By loyal followers you mean those of pure blood that lick their boots, right? Because they sure treat everyone else as garbage and the only reason no one opposes them is because they're scared. They're no different than vampires 'protecting' humans in exchange for their blood.
I actually agree with this. If they were going to remove most parts of the chapters just to speed through it making everything confusing then they should have removed it altogether.
>Dat fucking quality
Editing this was a pain.
By everyone else, you only mean the Ichinose family and their followers, right? Because those are the only people who are ever shown of getting the poor treatment from the Hiragis. And stop relating fear with hate. Just because I fear of breaking the law doesn't mean I hate my country.
>By everyone else, you only mean the Ichinose family and their followers, right?
Can you prove that the average citizen is treated accordingly? So far we have only seen people being abandoned to their luck outside of the walls, children being tortured with experiments, humanity being massacred for research purposes or people in the demon company being apprehensive of the Hiragis and saying they will not follow their direct orders, only Guren's. They treat their own family like shit too.
>Just because I fear of breaking the law doesn't mean I hate my country.
Seriously? You shouldn't be afraid to break the law, you should understand why it exists and abide by it willingly. That has nothing to do with someone subduing a nation and ruling it with fear. Or are you going to say you would live in a vampire city and behave because you were afraid of the law but didn't hate it?
This Anon knows, Mitsuba knows, Shinoa knows.
It's so cruel that they block Mitsuba with Shonoa.
Lets all take a moment to remember that this slutty semen demon is dead.
I don't really care to be honest. I'm only saying what I see, and what I see is that Guren and Shinya are more relevant to the Hiragi plot than Shinoa. Shinoa's own arc foundation is how she never cared about her sister until she met Yuu At least in the manga, don't know about the novels.
She is in LN and was the reason for Mahiru gone crazy, they also never talks about what Mahiru done to Shinoa's black demon, also she know them much, she just chose not get involve with Hiiragi not because she didn't know them, the time will finally come when she eventually care to get involve with the hiiragi to protect those she loved.
>Can you prove that the average citizen is treated accordingly?
You mean like all those kids living normal school lives, having enough freedom to write love letters, provided with homes and food?
>That has nothing to do with someone subduing a nation and ruling it with fear.
What exactly do people fear? We haven't seen any taxes, labours, conscription forced on your average civilian. Those guys who broke into the sealed room in their school didn't even realized their action would get them punished because that's how carefree their lives are. And they didn't even get court martial in the end. So what exactly do people fear under the Hiragi rule?
Yes, and that is why Shinoa needs to know the truth
Not really, kill him and nothing to lose except some power in Guren side and his fujofans, he is just adopted son.
Also in the bigger picture that are relevant to both manga and LN plot are only Guren, Shinoa, Kureto, and vampires
Even Yuu has nothing to do with Hiiragi he needs Guren or Shinoa to protect him from them.
Those are a minority and even then they are test subjects. Didn't you hear Shinoa? There's no such thing as a peaceful normal school anymore.
>We haven't seen any taxes, labours, conscription forced on your average civilian
We haven't seen the living conditions of the average civilian or how many of them live inside the walls. You have nothing.
People fear for their lives. Family and military simply say 'they're scary, don't mess with them'. Humans living outside of the walls sell their bodies to the vampires because they were abandoned. Test subjects are dead so they can't complain. Oh wait, they can because they're now demons.
And the guys who broke into the room realized they were doing shit, just not it was that bad. Did you see the looks in their faces when Shinoa said death punishment? Yeah, that's the face of someone who loves their country and the Hiragi family.
>they didn't even get court martial in the end
You don't know that.
>You will never know if Akane would've been a titty monster or not?
>You will never see how she would've locked the Yuubowl down.
>Those are a minority and even then they are test subjects
Surely you have something to back this statement up, right?
> There's no such thing as a peaceful normal school anymore.
As in vampires/horsemen could attack any time
>You have nothing.
Of all the panels we see of them, you can tell that their living conditions aren't poor. In fact, you are the one who has nothing and are making up baseless statements.
>People fear for their lives. Family and military simply say 'they're scary, don't mess with them'.
Most people have never been under the presence of the Hiragis' power to even need to be spread and inform others of this. Even the soldiers in this chapter were going "who the fuck is this guy?" when Kureto stepped out of the car.
> Test subjects are dead so they can't complain. Oh wait, they can because they're now demons.
Demons are made from vampires.
>And the guys who broke into the room realized they were doing shit, just not it was that bad.
And that's how carefree their lives are under the Hiragi rule
>Surely you have something to back this statement up, right?
Pot, meet kettle: the discussion. I was going to reply further but I really see no point since you haven't brought anything substantial to the table yet and keep ignoring the elephant in the room. There are people living in shit conditions because of them and these people don't like it, this is a fact. That's good enough for me. Believe in whatever headcanons you want.
> this Kureto being an asshole and tries to kill her too
Yeah. But in novel (when Kureto kidnapped Shinoa) he didn't harm her and said he wouldn't even try to hurt his little sister. So why Kureto changed his mind? Maybe because smug-chan isn't as cute as she used to?
>There are people living in shit conditions because of them
If by those people, you mean the ones outside the city captured by vampires, their condition would be shit regardless of who the human leader is. Their condition are shit because the Hiragi influence could not reach where they are. But you can continue to blame everything on Kureto to push forward this invisible elephant in the room.
The next thing you're going to say is that Mirai has been administrated top medical treatment. Is >>132998735 an invisible elephant too? Maybe I'm hallucinating. Or maybe you're going to say Kureto did nothing wrong and it was their fault for being there.
I guess Kureto tried to kill Shinoa only because her squad started to fight against him. When chains were pushed they didn't touch Shinoa. But that can be because she was too far so I'm not sure.
Ah yes, 'blame it all on Guren'. I should have seen that third option coming. It's hilarious how you're implying that Kureto's army that operates under Guren applies for 'under Ichinose family' when some of them like Mitsuba and Mito belong to more prestigious families. It's also funny how you dare suggest Mirai and other test subjects are somehow Guren's fault.
>those are the actual "minority" you keep pushing
"Surely you have something to back this statement up, right?"
When you're music is literally starting to sound so indistinguishable that people legitimately not even trolling or fakeposting are having a hard time telling what goes with what show. And this guy is supposedly the best composer out there right now.
>people are having a hard time telling what goes with what show
>two of those replies are of people who are 95% certain and pretty sure
I have no idea what you were trying to prove but you failed at it.
The vampires wear the armband on their left arm, but all vampires seen in daylight without an armband don't seem too hampered. Sunlight might weaken them, but it seems like it'd take a long time to kill them if it would.
The seas are really acidic and the Imperial Demon Army is currently only concerned with Japan. A navy will come into play eventually though since Kureto wants to dominate remaining human populations.
>Ah yes, 'blame it all on Guren'.
That's not the point. The claim is that most humans are glad that they are under the rule of the Hiragi family. The ones you keep claiming are not happy are the ones who are under the Ichinose which have a history of being against the Hiragis for 800 years, and the people outside the cities who aren't even under the Hiragis.
>when some of them like Mitsuba and Mito belong to more prestigious families.
They aren't getting attacked just like how Kureto ignored Shinya and will maintain that way unless they insist on protecting the people Kureto is trying to kill. And Mirai falls under the group outside of "most of humanity". It's evil to those who are related to her, but it's just for the greater good of humanity who will benefit from finally being capable of taking down the enemies they fear the most.
>"Surely you have something to back this statement up, right?"
The Ichinose family being small is something that's already established in the LN since the first volume
Yuu will never plow his harem of four girls:
That school girl he saved, Mitsuba, Shinoa, and Asamaru
>That's not the point.
It is when you keep blaming Guren for Kureto's actions.
The Ichinose family hasn't been around for 800 years.
>They aren't getting attacked
This has nothing to do with it and was not even the point of why I brought it up.
>Mirai falls under the group outside of "most of humanity"
Now not only are you backpedaling on your initial statement but you're also pulling shit out of your ass because we have no idea how many experiments are there.
>it's just for the greater good of humanity
So, 'Kureto did nothing wrong' it is.
>The Ichinose family being small is something that's already established in the LN since the first volume
Way to miss the point of what I was saying and what you needed to prove. And you don't even need to go back to the LN to know that Ichinose is an irrelevant family, that's in the manga as well.
I had enough of this pointless argument. I now know for sure you will continue to refute everything I say with nothing but speculation and Kureto bias. Enjoy your headcanons.
these aristocrat girls not carrying out their duty of breeding for the expansion of the imperial demon army
Glen has the best harem
These two work together really well
Are not for breeding with commoners. I'm surprised Mitsuba and Shinoa haven't had an arranged marriage yet, though.
>It is when you keep blaming Guren for Kureto's actions.
I'm not even blaming anyone, you are.
> because we have no idea how many experiments are there.
We know because only the Hyakuya Sect and various branches outside of Japan has experimented with Seraph of the End. The Hiragi would have been able to produce more black demon users if not annihilated along with the Hyakuya Sect if they also took part in Seraph experiments. And frankly, even if he did a lot of experiments, it still wouldn't make him evil. It's a necessity in their present situation for survival.
>So, 'Kureto did nothing wrong' it is.
More like he perform some wrong to benefit a much larger group of people, hence, being grey.
Those two should put some clothes on. They might catch a cold.
I want some edgy zealous christian knight order with cool as fuck armors to arrive in Nippon looking for the Seraphs only to be ultimately defeated by katanas folded a thousand times.
/Glendating sim when?
Owari no Seraph VN when? Imagine the story routes and endings?
Same. The new OP doesn't really compare to the first one.
>best WIT animator never showed up on Seraph
>presumed he's probably busy working on Titans s2/Kabaneri
>instead he showed up on One Punch Man and animated the whole sparring scene gorgeously
What the fuck happened?
What the hell was the point of them fighting Guren's squad?
I want this training/nakama building shit to end. Theres some real plot lurking underneath but it's pushed back by shonen cliches.
Other Good End
It made sense in the manga because they spent a lot of time farting around and Shinoa needed to learn how to value her team. They also needed to learn how weak they still are. In the anime it kinda looks a bit like random training so it was a waste of time. Not as bad as in S1 when they added Yuu and Shinoa falling underground and being separated from the group though. That was filler tier and made it look like they helped Guren by chance.
The tsundere needs coaching to avoid classic mistakes like going straight to sex with no foreplay on the first time and to avoid clenching up enough that Yuu ends the night with a bruised dick.
She's more of an MC than Mika, because Mika barely ever appears enough to be a deuteragonist. They really failed with him. I guess that's why Kagami needed to make a separate LN just to show his perspective.
Doujins where the vampires something something pheromones, something sexual urges, etc. and then everybody gangs up on Yuu and rides that bicycle to fucktown and back until they're all panting and wasted and can't move when?
Ferid forcing Mika to watch and sob and masturbate behind a one-way mirror while he molests him would not be out of the question in this scenario.
Yes. Tear her shit up.
She's a tsundere, and was use to be being in charge. Not to mention she's part of the branch families if I remember of the Hiragi so they know each other/are friends even though they argue time to time.
I didn't even notice the 3d cars until now. They should've just drawn them.
No, she had him for 4 years before that and didn't turn him. She only turned him at that time because he was dying and she wanted him to survive, vampires can regenerate their bodies.
That's what I mean. She indeed turned him because he was dying, but the only reason she didn't let him die was due to him being experimented on by the Hyakuya.
Had he been a regular human who was dying, she would have let him die.
So is series just fujo pandering or should I give it a chance?
I don't think I can handle much more fujo since I'm already keeping up with OPM, gundam, and return of the kings this season.
Up to you. It's ann entertaining enough watch without anything fujo pandering, but if you don't like that and you're all fujoed out, you could give it a skip until later. It's not some masterpiece, but if you're ever bored and want a good way to spend the time you could give it a try.
Depends on what you consider fujo pandering, I think it's only fujo pandering in the OP and magazines. The series itself is omni, there's girls and guys alike lusting after MC's dick. Watch the first 2 or 3 episodes and see if you like it.
Guren Second Lieutenant Slut just dot a doujin and its scanned.
Both of them are younger and fucking like rabbits.
You're walking down the street with a bag full of candy in your hand, as you always do, when suddenly you accidentally wander into a dark alley.
You turn to leave; however, twelve Mitsubas surround you and block the exit. But wait, these aren't any ordinary Mitsubas, these are Mitsubas in heat and have their eyes set on you.
How do you get yourself out of this pickle?
Of all the characters I expected to see get their tits upsized to be bigger than their head in a doujin I'd have picked the redhead of Guren's harem rather than the one with average chest size.
You will never have Shigure ask you for sex within a fulfilling relationship.
Why even enlist, mates?
Guren's bored face when there're two girls wanting to show their bodies to him is priceless.
Did she die?
Fucking vampires, kill the lot.
I want to have loving sex with a Mito.
Holy shit why is Yuu so adorable this season? He's more moe than any of the other girls.
FUCK i hate this annoying bitch she finally got told
I want his smile to protect my smile.
Say no to violence against lolis.
Reminds me how they skipped Yuu and Mika fighting and the other kids sharing their story.
If they weren't killed in the disaster it's possible. Yuu's parents knew he was part of the project so they could still play a role in the story. It makes me wonder if they weren't test tube babies and those families were only assigned to look after them.
Guren/Shinya tea set was also made for AGF1015
Anyone know the chances of this set and the Yuu set ending up on the y!Japan auction?
I'm more interested in "Guren" showing up with Krul and fucking Kureto over, while Moon Demon wanders what the fuck is going on, and Mika and Shinoa fight over Yuu in the background.
I was pretty sure the whole point was Yuu and Mika switching places so Yuu can heal him and provide him a family as Mika once did with him when he was the one jaded and lonely.
I want more mini mika and mini yuu
Seriously who is this woman
She dosn't have a name yet and it's been how many chapters
She does have a name. She's Sangu Aoi, Mitsuba's older sister.
does anyone know who this grill is?
she's pretty hot
Just started the manga a couple days ago and holy shit, when I read that. I fucking love this fluffy angel.
I like her design better when she was 16
You know, despite not liking Crowley that much, I really hope he makes it out of this alive along with his bitches. Probably has to do with him being the closest thing to a straight male vampire though.
Crowley is annoying but I'm okay with him. Unlike the other vampires who kill because of muh vampire pride, he does it because he's bored and wants to have fun. He lets them get away most of the time too so his karma isn't completely fucked yet, he could still become an ally.
I never said they were all gay. Sure some of them (like Mika's guard buddies) look fabulous enough, but most vampires are basically asexual and don't give a shit about others unless it means drinking them dry.
He said older sisters.
I wish I could give Mika a reality worth accepting.
>Yuu takes Mika in and everyone in Shinoa's team gradually accept him as part of their family
>everyone survives the war and they grow all close to each other

>Mika is left alone with their kids
>they also age and die eventually
>somewhere along the line Mika starts running an orphanage on his own
>he watches every kid grow up, age and die for centuries
>after some time his memories of his first family start fading away
>straight with all his blushing near Mika, his trap pandering with his demon, his 'friendship' with Youchi, and his daddy kink with Gurren.
Good thing Shinoa is more manly than most of the guys of this series. Or she wouldn't have a chance. Mitsuba was doomed.
With Mika it's understandable with all the TRAGEDY they have both gone through to have intense feelings that aren't gay.
Asuramaru is a literal semen demon and traps aren't gay. What are you, a fag?
Yoichi is a miracle and should not be sexualized.
With Guren I legit only see paternal or brotherly feelings and nothing gay.
How can you be this delusional? I can kind of see it with Mika (still think it's bullshit though) but all of those other things make no sense. His demon is a very convincing trap, there's nothing at all unusual about his friendship with Yoichi, and there'd nothing weird about Guren either.
Ridiculous in the sense that I don't see any basis for it, sure (and Yuu/Guren in particular feels weird to me because they've got more of a father/son relationship than anything else) but the rest doesn't feel any different from any other Yuu pairing, at least as far as his feelings are concerned.
And in 'the rest', I'm including Yoichi. I don't see any canon hints at Yuu's romantic or sexual interest, but the thought of anyone in his squad being fair game is entertaining to me
and Yoichi is cute.
Krul obviously likes him. Don't give me that "a-as pet/kid" because the way she looks at him and enjoys when he feeds of her is fairly incestuous. She just has no chance because Mika is too Yu centric.
>Krul obviously likes him
She does not like him romantically
> the way she looks at him and enjoys when he feeds of her is fairly incestuous
What? that is just common reaction, i don't see something special
Krul likes the fact that he's a Seraph, likes how he's developed, and maybe finds him a bit hot. I don't see it as being a potential relationship though, she's more interested in his potential as a Seraph than anything else.
Krul has a pink line to Mika, similar to Shinoa's light purple line to Yu. That implies, in both cases, romantic attraction.
Stop being in denial, homofags. Even Kagami made her super tsundere in that twitter when she wanted Mika to wish her happy birthday and was mad Ferid did in his place.
>Krul has a pink line to Mika, similar to Shinoa's light purple line to Yu
That's different how is that similar. Krul also has a pink line to Ferid, Ferid and Mika are basically the same for Krul, she only interests with Seraph in Mika
>one of Yuu's mentors, responsible for getting him through the process of getting into the army and training him on various things
>his earliest ally and handler post-childhood arc, always watching his back and serving arguably the most central role in his change to more of a team player
>handles much of the direction of the squad, including investigating things that are going on behind the scenes
>on top of all of this, she's Yuu's main love interest
Landwhale plz. Only fujo logic (which the anime staff appears to subscribe to) could lead you to the conclusion that Shinoa is just another member of the supporting cast.
What does then?
Her surname comes from the posthumous nickname of Vlad Drakul ("Țepeș" - always translated as "the impaler" in English - though maybe that's an older term no longer in use or something, since this was half a god damn millennium ago) and the term for impalement itself uses a word that at least looks related.
You're right. Only your bishies are the main characters because you say so.
>DURRR DURRR "SHINOA IS A MAIN CHARACTER BECAUSE I SAY SO" IM SO WITTY WHERE'S MY ICE CREAM BECAUSE I DESERVE IT
You've provided no argument as to why Shinoa is just another member of the supporting cast, on par with the other members of the squad. You just stated that this is her role, and that was it.
No I didn't.
I wasn't that anon, and stop typing like an idiot, it's fucking annoying.
I don't really care, but I can guess as to that anon's reasoning: Mika is more narratively significant (in that his focus brings more to the story than Shinoa's would alone) and has a more profound connection to Yuu's backstory and motivations, at least at first.
I don't really know where the Guren thing was coming from but I feel like they view all of Yuu's squadmates as relevant to the progression of the plot only through Yuu. After them, the ones who bring the reader/watcher the most insight into the world would be Mika and Guren maybe?
There's still the point that Mika doesn't have as much screentime as she does though, which is why I don't know if I'd make the same argument.
>they view all of Yuu's squadmates as relevant to the progression of the plot only through Yuu
She'd be wrong, at least in regards to Shinoa. Shinoa is an agent in her own right. Her intuition and knowledge of how the system works provides insight that none of the shadier characters in the Demon Army would provide on their own, and when you take how active she is in so many areas of the story, it's tough to say "So she's a plot vehicle."
Also, as you stated, Mika winds up feeling less relevant in the long run than he does at the beginning. At the moment, he mostly feels like he's there to serve as the audience's connection to the vampires. He'll probably be the bridge that brings the good guys on the vampire side to the good guys on the human side, but as things stand, calling him the deuteragonist feels like a bit much.
Her viewpoint is pretty clearly tainted by goggles, thus all of the accusations that she's likely a tumblr whale.
Not inherently, sure, but if Shinoa were stabbed dead in the next chapter, OnS's dynamics would fundamentally change.
>leader is gone; squad becomes less organized
>connection to the inside is gone
>Yuu's main support is gone; Yuu would probably be edgier than ever for a while
>most popular comic relief is gone (the impact of comic relief on a work's atmosphere is often overlooked by autists)
You couldn't really say the same about the other squad members, who's deaths wouldn't change a whole lot.

Watching these openings over and over only make me realize how much I hate how little hair moves in anime. only ponytails and long hair have any sort of movement. I get that this is 1: Anime 2: a budget issue 3: Jappin, but my inner animator hates this.
I know that I cannot expect amazing quality from anime, I just wish I could see it more often. Just small details like movement in Mika's ... whatever you call that strand of hair that stick out of the character's head on top. Just some swishing or something would amaze me and fill me with joy.
She has nothing on President Shinoa.
It's called ahoge, anon. I don't think Mika has been exposed to wind strong enough to make his hair flutter. If it bounced a lot every time he walked or was standing still it would look unnatural.
Sawano can be described as this decade's Yuki Kajiura. It's not exactly a bad comparison, it gets to a point where every single track sounds the same, or things get overused, etc.
The only thing about this show and the music is that Sawano hasn't cracked out the random German tracks yet. Maybe there's hope.
>Yuu's main support is gone; Yuu would probably be edgier than ever for a while
>You couldn't really say the same about the other squad members
I don't agree here. I think Yuu would be equally devastated if any squad members were to die.
>SawanoHiroyuki[nZk] is Sawano's FictionJunction
Because some better girls are around and wasn't given any screentime
>WHY, WHY DID YOU KILL THEM ALL?!?!?!! THEY WERE ON YOUR SIDE?!!?!?!?!?!? WHY, WHY WHY!!!!!!
For Humanity, sacrifice must be made for people to live in a just world. We are mortal, our world isn't ideal, and if the ends are justifiable enough then by god any means needed must be done to get them.
>People shouldn't die for others to live in peace and safety.
Literally every civilization has done this, what fucking world do you live in where nobody dies so you can type your witty fucking idiotic reply on a damn imageboard again?
Killing more than half of the humanity so that the lower half could survive kind of beats the point. Kureto doesn't really give a shit about humanity though, he just wants to rule over everyone.
>what fucking world do you live in where nobody dies so you can type your witty fucking idiotic reply on a damn imageboard again?
What fucking world do YOU live in where you think it's acceptable to sacrifice a human life so you can type your witty Kureto shitposting in a damn imageboard? Get a grip.
