S3 has begun!
This teacher is adorable. I need someone to ship her with, stat.
She has had series before which did a timeskip at the end, but I'm not sure whether it would be appropriate for a comedy series such as Yuru Yuri, since timeskips always leave a bit of a melancholic aftertaste in your mouth.
Given Yuru Yuri's tone these days I think I'd feel melancholic if it finished with no resolution for any of the characters, since she's subtly introduced character arcs for a few of them.
Also will we ever fucking find out who Nadeshiko's dating
sorry pals, it's just an involuntary movement at this point. kaede is still best character tho
/c/ and /u/ are slow enough that you can use the thread watcher for threads which you care about, since they last for a fairly long time but don't have regular enough posts to be worth keeping tabs around for at all times.
Settings (bottom right next to [Home]) -> Monitoring -> Thread Watcher.
I also recommend "Pin Thread Watcher to the page"
Add threads to the watcher by clicking the clover symbol on the top left or bottom left, or in the catalog.
Might as well dump some
lewdshit this thread needs more porn, I swear
The better question is, why not?
look at this top notch story progression, hot damn this artist deserves a fucking oscar for this
This girl looks like she's got some hardcore feelings.
I really don't know what Namori is thinking (if at all). Megumi would be way too obvious, but the others don't have those small little hints that she does. Strictly from a narrative point of view putting personal preferences aside, no matter who "wins" it's a loss.
Get with the times, grandma. This is the new hotness.
What's with the tiny size?
I wonder how much TRUE CHITOSE SHIP I'm going to get this season.
Ayano deserves to be with the one she loves. Don't you want her to be happy?
Why should I have to face something that's untrue, onee-sama?
Because Chizuru agrees with me to what is the superior ship
Chizuru is confused. She is not sure if she can make her sister happy, but she wants her.
I love that Chinatsu likes the Akari's daki more that the other girls besides Akari herself.
>Kyouko giving it a low rating seems kind of out of character.
She has been in her fair share of Comukets, knows what are dakis... used for and disapproves the sexualization of Akari. I guess.
What does each girl think of it, anyways? They didn't translate this part.
Just finished watching episode 2 of season 3. Funny comedy like usual. Ironically a few minutes after watching the episode I was flipping through live tv channels and AMC had on a commercial about a guy who is famous for doing that type of thing with pancakes.
>Kyouko giving it a low rating seems kind of out of character.
Maybe she liked the idea, but preferred more of a cosplay content to the character. Or maybe she was thinking a naked version would be better?
(Waffles was my CAPTCHA for this (not far from the pancakes I just watched).
Who are you suggesting "they" are? Looks like different style characters in each shot. If you changed some of their hair colors they would look like other characters, but aside from that I don't see any relevance.
Kyouko is saying it's well made and that she feels like she's seen it somewhere before, but her head hurts when she tries to remember it. This is a reference to the very first chapter of the manga when she walked into Akari's brother's room and saw all the creepy stuff. I guess the joke is that she can't remember it clearly because of the retcon that changed the brother character into Akane.
By the way, Akari is happy to see merchandise of herself because it makes her feel like she's the main character. Yui is weirded out but thinks it's bad to deny other people's hobbies, and it's fine since Akari seems happy. Chinatsu is imagining a Yui version.
I wasn't implying it's the same people every time.
Where are you watching the new seasons episodes?
I can't seem to find them.
Tried a rough TL
>Wai! I'm so happy there are Akari goods this big~. It feels so protagonist-like, it's kinda embarrassing. Ehehe.
>An Akari-chan hug pillow...? Not Yui-senpai!? Well, if I just use my imagination I'll feel just as happy, so 8 points. Someone make it for me!
>Good fabric and nice printing, it's very well made. I get the feeling I've seen it somewhere before... [Ugh, I can't remember!?]
>[There's a lot I could say about this but...] It's not my place to question people's hobbies, and Akari seems to be happy about it so whatever.
Guys, what if Ayano's mother is tsundere for Kyouko's mom?
At least Himawari's house got retconned into an actual house this season.
SHE GAVE HER CLOTHES, MAN
>M-my daughter had some left over clothes, alright?
>I-it's not like I care that much about your family!
I got mine off of nyaa.eu
It's a good site to remember if you're new to finding anime, honestly. That and baka.bt are my go to sites for stuff, though baka is mainly for older shows.
That's it. I'm sick of all this "Masterwork Cavalier" bullshit that's going on in the d20 system right now. Akkarin, the Spider Cavalier deserves much better than that. Much, much better than that.
I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine sword spider in Menzoberranzan for 4 platinum tricrowns (that's about 20 gold lions) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even climb vertical walls on the back of my sword spider.
Drow spider breeders spend years taking care of every single sword spider and feed them up to million rats to produce the finest mounts known in all of Faerûn.
Sword spiders can move thrice as fast as horses and can leap ten times as high for that matter too. Anything a horse can trample, a sword spider can trample better. I'm pretty sure a sword spider's sharp leg could easily bisect a knight wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash.
Ever wonder why humans never bothered conquering Menzoberranzan? That's right, they were too scared to fight Akkarin, the Spider Cavalier and her sword spider mount of destruction. Even during Siege of Menzoberranzan, Scoured Legion targeted the drows with sword spider mounts first because their killing power was feared and respected.
So what am I saying? Akkarin, the Spider Cavalier is simply the best cavalier in the history of anime and manga, and thus, requires better stats in the d20 system. Here is the stat block I propose for Akkarin, the Spider Cavalier:
Sword Spider Mount
Monstrous Hunting Spider
CE Huge magical beast (augmented vermin)
Init/Senses: +5/darkvision 60 ft., tremorsense 60 ft. (unlimited in web); Listen +1, Spot +1
AC: 24, touch 13, flat-footed 19; uncanny dodge (–2 size, +5 Dex, +9 natural, +2 armor)
HP: 69 (10 HD)
Speed: 150 ft. (30 squares), climb 30 ft.; Fleet of Foot, Run
Melee: claw (piercing) +15 melee (4d6+8 plus poison) or
trample +15/+10/+5 melee (2d6+4)
Abilities: Str 23, Dex 20, Con 17, Int 10, Wis 12, Cha 14
Feats: Fleet of Foot, Improved Natural Attack (claw), Run
Skills: Climb +23, Hide +8, Jump +25, Spot +16.
CE small humanoid
Skills: Hide +20, Move Silently +20
Now that seems a lot more representative of the destructive power of Akkarin, the Spider Cavalier in Yuru Yuri, don't you think?
tl;dr = Akkarin, the Spider Cavalier needs to be more powerful in d20, see my new stat block.
Since these will either be simulcasts or tv rips, the encoding quality might be a bit shite, so using a player like http://mpv.io/ and setting the "opengl-hq" video output in the config file might be a good idea if you care about video quality. Among other things, it enables a debanding filter, getting rid of some rather unsightly video compression artefacts.
If you're not a videophile though and watch it on a common TN panel monitor and never noticed anything wrong with JPEGs, then you can safely ignore my post and just do whatever you want.
As for torrent clients, I recommend qbittorrent by the way, which is an open-source clone of µTorrent, and thus without all the adware crap that comes with µTorrent.
It's the little things
Wasn't this black coffee in the manga?
Oh derp, nevermind, maybe I should watch the whole thing before I post.
Just finished the first season of this show the other day. I've got a few other shows I want to watch before I return to it, so what I want to know is will Himawari and Sakurako be getting more screentime than they did in S1? One of my few disappointments was that it felt like they barely got anything compared to the other main characters.
Yes. Season 1 seems largely focused on the second years, meanwhile, Season 2 seems to focus more on the first years. I think they decided that they had a bit too much focus on Kyouko and Ayano in S1 so they decided to cut back on them, Ayano actually gets very little screen time in S2.
IIRC she notices when Yui makes a pun because she'll deliberately respond with another pun, which always leads to awkwardness.
I don't think she realizes that it was her making a pun in the first place that set Yui off though.
Not directly related to Yuru Yuri, but does anyone know the music from this video? I know it's a song called In the Mood but I've never heard this specific version of it and would like to.
Has the preview for the next episode been posted ITT yet? Well, here it is if anyone missed it.
Looks like we're getting the coveted Sakurako Ponytail chapter.
>Hey, kid. Give me your sister and I'll give you mine.
At first I thought that you were singling me out for some odd reason, but than I got the joke.
But you're so fucking cute when you're being bullied.
You know she would. I think it's even canon to a degree, if the drama cd is anything to go by.
So why did Akane think that Akari would have gone to Yui had she found out her secret?
Akari x Yui foreshadowing?
She has a point
Man, TYO are really pushing the uncommon Ayano ships.
But you can't beat the reason she became gay in the first place
SAKURAKO STOPPED JUST SHORT OF THE YURI YARD LINE!
WHAT A BIG HIT!
I wholeheartedly refuse.
>implying a shipper would break up their number 1 OP
You should be ashamed of yourself.
You know instead of giving scenes to random-ass background characters and teachers they could show Chitose more, if it was Dogakobo she'd be dead in puddle of blood after what happened but NOOOO we're studio SO SERIOUS SO MATURE WE MADE TAMAYURA yeah fuck you guys you don't fucking know what Yuru Yuri is about
It's not about being serious, it's just that the nosebleed gag got old after the first couple of times. They still acknowledged it in this episodes for consistence's sake, but fortunately didn't waste any time on it.
And I like the background characters. This teacher knows her shit. The one from ep 2 with Kuroko/Subara's voice was nice too.
I'm fine with the nosebleed gag/Chitose herself getting less attention, but the episodes certainly have been more boring. I like the increased flirty feeling, but that's mostly coming from the manga source material. This episode nearly put me to sleep.
I wouldn't mind having more Chitose, I don't dislike her. The nosebleed gag is a dead horse, but she could do other things. She had good interactions with Akari in the OVAs, for example.
are you implying she was straight before?
I'm surprised this new image by Namori hasn't been posted yet.
I want to see knife-chan's yandere yuri adventures.
I think Namori could actually write something like that really well.
Who knows, Yuru Yuri is all about making your own couplings. Maybe Namori will do something about that.
This is nothing new. The "tries to not permanently pair characters" tactic I mean.
Authors use this tactic to keep readers (and especially shippers) sticking with their work in hope of seeing their preferred couple win in the end. If you pair a couple in the middle of a story, you're risking the rage of shippers.
Angry shippers dropping the series = less sales. Simple math, really.
In the end, it's all about money.
>Ayano getting cuntblocked by capitalism
life isn't fair
>"tries to not permanently pair characters" tactic
this is what harem self insert do right? like from the top of my mind is Negima, how did that ended did the MC get with someone or is in the air? I dare to think it is still in the air... After so many years....
Yeah, the same is happening in Oomuro-ke, but at least we know that Nadeshiko is dating someone. So she is canonicaly with the "someone." But we will never know because it's up to reader imagination who is she dating and that's it.
>Also, Akari isn't really shipable with anybody else then Chinatsu.
>what is Akane
Yet there are still no official pairings.
Himawari and Sakurako are special in that regard because they we more screentime together and so are less challenged, but are still a bit far from being official.
>>what is Akane
Very, very, very onesided.
There are many ships in YrYr but not everybody is easily shipable with everybody. Look at Yui. Her only real shipping partner is Kyouko. It is obvious she feels nothing beyond friendship for Chinatsu and she simply did not have enough scenes with Ayano to considere that a stable ship.
>Very, very, very onesided.
>and she simply did not have enough scenes with Ayano to considere that a stable ship
But that's the beauty of it. It doesn't need to have anything resembling a stable relationship, just a small nudge towards something that may be interpreted as more than a simple relationship, and the fans do the rest. It keeps them occupied and spent on the manga. It keeps us discussing this kind of stuff. So the thing becomes popular, and it sells.
It's on a stage that's more than subtext, that's for sure. Namori is a yuri artist in the end, so it makes sense that this approach shows different kinds of gradients on her characters so as not to have all of them in a sort of nebulous and undefined yuri amalgamation.
Where is Satomi Arai when you need her.
I also much prefer the "x is not yuri/x is yuribait" shitflinging as opposed to the "would you lick you're waifu's butthole" shitflinging
I have /yryr/ and /u/ open constantly, /yryr/ was actually pretty good during the summer, but it is mostly shitposting and porn at the moment. And arguing about the sound quality of the new season.
To be honest, I like the porn too.
Yuri has as much layers as an ogre.
I like the idea that they all have their first time and further explorations with their childhood friends/girlfriends/soulmates though. They all already have one. Though I couldn't blame Nadeshiko or Sakurako for not being able to keep their hands off their respective younger sisters.
Season 3 was worth it for this alone.
Season 3 has been delivering nothing but pure yuri teasing.
I'm loving it
