She improved this show.
Too bad Irene becomes irrelevant afterwards. Would like her to come back in future volumes. Hopefully when we get to the Le Wolfe confrontation, with Orphillia and the fatass.
Real diplomats don't bring weapons to the negotiating table with them and start pointing them at each other the moment they don't get their way. That's just not how civilized negotiation is done. And these shitheads are supposed to represent and lead the governing their schools? It's a miracle they're not all already at war.
> That's just not how civilized negotiation is done.
Right, civilized negotiations is done through backstabs, blackmails and sheer hypocrisy. And everyone brings their weapons to the table. They're just not swords and handguns or whatever. Real diplomats exist only in theory.
What part of her is a bitch, fagot?

That was my point. Diplomacy still maintains a pretense of niceties, and all the real strife is takes place through implying implications and bullshitting while in the background the people you represent manipulate events to stack the deck in your favor. You don't bring a sword to the table and shove it through someone's throat, or announce that you will kill everybody present, because that's far too overt and gives everyone else an excuse to gang up on you.
This semen demon.
At least meme correctly. The fedora doesn't apply at all you faggot. He's just Gawain.
Cant decide between Kirin and this one
Both new characters and best girls immediately
Don't you just want to protect her, get bodied and
get protected by her?
What is this crap?
"I'll agree to stop beating this kid if you can win a fight"?
So, what, do they live in some kind of dystopian dog eat dog chaosfag paradise where there is no rule of law, and only strength matters?
Having the biggest gun means I have the God-given right to do whatever I want and dictate to anyone I want?
Is there not a problem with the way this is done? Fuck the duels, beating a child in the face for "talking back" is grounds for a police report and social services involvement.
>Having the biggest gun means I have the God-given right to do whatever I want and dictate to anyone I want?
That's been true since humans learned to walk on 2 legs and it continues being true till this day. It'll probably continue being true in the future as well.
Crazy genkidere is a gag character and she is awesome that way. But wouldn't expect her to have a lasting effort over more developed girls.
As of now, I would still put Julis ahead, followed by Saya then Kirin.
Guns didn't exist whenever humans first came to be... in the grand scheme of human history they're relatively recent inventions.
That said, some may or may not be able to move as fast and faster but that doesn't hold for every genestella.
>So, what, do they live in some kind of dystopian dog eat dog chaosfag paradise where there is no rule of law, and only strength matters?
YES! did you see the start of episode 1? the whole LN world revolves around a form of entertainment where school children murder each other gladiator style
It means you have the capability. It doesn't mean you have the "right". This is one of the tenets that allows civilization to function. The police are given bigger guns than the citizens to allow them to enforce the law, rather than them having the bigger guns meaning that they are the law. Unless you live in some America.
I need to stop watching this show... I'm genuinely falling in love with Kirin after just one episode, and it's sincerely starting to depress me that she isn't real. If I get in too deep I might never be able to fall out of love.
Both anime and that illustration are fucked up. She shouldn't have large tits at all.
Also, the anime made Julis smaller and Saya even flatter. I don't dislike these changes though.
I assume with the "biggest gun" you meant the biggest weapon/more power. Just replace gun with whatever was/is the primary tool of authority.
Her and Mari are the best tsundere heroines this season.
You wouldn't have liked it if someone raped you when you were 13
Yes. It's a world where a bunch of children are born with enhanced bodies and superpowers. The balance is all over the fucking place, wherever it exists that is. If anything the city of Asterisk itself is a lot like Academy City in Index.
Not so much the whole world, but there are shady organizations/cabals that have great power and influence that makes use of genestella for their own means, including entertainment that are illegal, such is the one Ayato's sister got involved in.
>If anything the city of Asterisk itself is a lot like Academy City in Index.
Except that in Index's Academy City the esper students have nowhere near as much autonomy Asterisk's Academy City on the water. The real war potential of Index's Academy City is not in the students, it's in the Antiskill security forces and the researchers in the underworld of the city who push the boundaries of science based on research conducted into the students.
Moeblob gets more accented in animation, and you can see her lewd body in it's whole glory.
All of that also exist in Asterisk. Asterisk just has a different system that gives more power to the schools in the city and yeah Antiskill doesn't exist. The main difference is that in Asterisk the city feels more like an academy to watch over the Genestella and even offers opportunities for them to advance higher in the ladder because the whole world is different and clearly affected by the rise of the special children(hell there are Genestella that have grown up and have had kids themselves). While in Index, it's much closer to our real world and the city works as a containment place and experiment lab essentially. Thus, stuff in Asterisk don't need to be so much "underground". The morality is very different.
oppsi lolis are truly the best
You are right. The reason why asterisk isn't called assterisk is because this show has no ass
Kirin is cute and all but Julis is still my favorite Asterisk.
I'm surprised at how high the production values in this show are.
The nice thing about Julis is that she's pretty understanding. Actually has a good head on her shoulder and keeps that harshness, while still having cute moments here and there.
Suigita voicing Dirk.
Suddenly, the best character.
Did she win already?
Saya is cute and is such an amusing little girl.
>Even cooler powers via sealed/unsealed
>Interesting setting to match the chuuni
It is imo.
In what? Points? Is this your first season or do you just not know that besides how irrevant stalker is, especially early in the season, the only thing remotely useful on it are the rankings?
If it's not the last month/weeks before the show goes on sale, there is no point in looking at points ranking. Don't act like those retards at the sales thread earlier that don't even know what each stat means.
Hell OP of the latest thread used a ranking listing for the shows, they shitposted their heart out. Then someone came, put them on a points listing and they started shitposting the other way around. The sheer display of brain dead cancer in that general is astounding.
She really made the show a lot better.
I expected julius to be a lot cuter instead of whatever she is.
Blue is the sleepy autism loli and I've never been a fan of those.
Claudia is the normal ara ara seitokaichou and I've never been a fan of those either so I'll take and keep cute Kirin.
Hoping she gets a lot more screentime so my enjoyment of the show goes up.
Kirin a delicious titty beast.
I hope the Asterisk game will feature a route for her and Claudia.
>Claudia is the normal ara ara seitokaichou and I've never been a fan of those
Not normal, she's incredibly sexually aggressive.
Most men wouldn't be able to resist the kind of advances she has been making.
The only reason to watch this show.
