Too bad it never caught fire. It was rather /u/, especially that second ending. I miss it.
Anyway, this thread is for:
*Screenshots, pages, and discussion about general series, current or old, not covered by an existing thread, be it yuri, fanservice, subtext or goggles. Canon and non-canon both welcome.
*News reports about things relevant to our interest
*Original content that doesn't fit any specific thread topics
*Pretty much anything that doesn't have or need its own thread.
Old thread is here: >>1892013
I am pretty sure I watched KKK, but remember next to nothing about it beyond it being a "4 girls in a classroom" show.
I hate using the word, but "forgettable" seems to describe it with a no small degree of accuracy.
What yuri bait? A yuri direction was intended, because the author said so on his blog before he kicked the bucket. As I always say, it doesn't mean something has stopped being yuri, just because it doesn't turn out the way some people think yuri should be.
However, the storyline is the main affair, and the relationship simply ties into it as part of the plot. Plus angst.
Anyhow, the PVs are more yuri than most yuri anime that has been aired for this year and the last.

Ahh, so it's legitimate! That's good.
But what is yuri bait to you? To me it's only bait, if the characters switch and development suddenly happens with dudes. Otherwise, whether it's a good or bad ending, a main item or side affair, or even more subtexty than canon, as long as they stay the course, I still consider it yuri.
Hard to say now, as it depends how the movie will adapt the story. From the PVs, it seems they are not hiding the yuri at least.
Thing is, the story is a deep explorative kind on humanity, philosophical introspection and science fiction thrown into the mix..etc.. The yuri comes in, as the main character, Tuan, she was/is involved with that other chick in the PV, Miach, who will also play an important part of the main plot.
So roughly, you can imagine what kind of yuri you will be getting, and the direction it will go.
>Ahh, so it's legitimate! That's good.
But it's just subtext though. There's nothing concrete between them, and the MC had many relationships with guys. Plus the other girl was
raped as a kid, so there's the implication that whatever feelings she might have had for the MC, where due to the fact that she hated guys.
she dies at the end.
Koukaku no Pandora - Ghost Urn gets an event anime
I think it's like an OVA or something like that.
Don't get me wrong. They don't even say that. It's just the implication after they reveal what happened to her when she was a kid. And that reveal happens at the very end. So for the most part you don't really know what kind of person she really is, how she really feels, or anything about her really. She's just this weird person the MC is trying find (they parted ways after high-school) because she thinks she might be involved in some huge conspiracy.
It's mystery series. It has no actual romance.
That's the kind of thing that would still retroactively spoil something on me. Not necessarily terribly, but it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. On the list of bottom of the barrel yuri tropes I'd rather have a lesbian character turn straight for a super special MC because he's just that awesome. I'll probably check it out anyway because it does look pretty cool.
The movie would leave a bad taste either way.
Not only the girl dies, but the MC actually pushes the "trigger" the other girl set up before dying, effectively changing the world, for the worst.It's a total bad ending.
Look, It's more than just subtext. Doesn't mean it's not a premise with an idealized yuri sim dating world setup, it is not yuri.
> MC had many relationships with guys
Hate to bring RL into this, but so do many lesbians before they identify as lesbians. Also, not sure how does that make any difference as
the focus throughout has always been on the 3 girls, not any guys relationship with them.
she dies at the end
Might be a problem for some admittedly. But the journey could be a worthy trade-off.
Besides, the author intended for the girls relationship to be important, and I'm not going to just ignore that.
Anyway, if one enjoys the premise, I believe the movie will be a great watch on both the story and yuri fronts, as it's different from a lot of the usual. Just watch the PVs, and see if you'd like it.
Wanted to add, that watching the film might be vastly different than when reading the book. You might find your impression totally different than what anyone might say, especially if you have no knowledge of the novel beforehand.
You sound like one of those purity-fags, who think yuri should only be all about "serious, and chaste hand-holding clear lesbian confessions". And if it doesn't follow this formula, your brain will turn blur, and can't enter anything else. Except that it is garbage. It's time yuri comes on parity with het relationships, with varied, mature, intriguing and engaging portrayals, than just plain direct romance all the time (not that it's bad). I bet you wouldn't even be disputing anything if Tuan were a guy.
I read the book and liked it, and I plan to watch the movie. I still think the yuri is subtext though. Miach and Tuan's relationship is full of undertones, but there's nothing stated as far as I remember.
Talking about yourself? Frankly, only yuri fans (not all, to be fair) have this "one-way" view of what should be considered yuri. Nobody else has, for the all the other romance demographics. Sounds incredibly autistic to me.
Seems like they gayed up quite a bit the story for the movie. Thanks, Michael Arias.
Oh my dog, remember this?
Was about magical fingerings
Someone posted this from the November chapter of Nadeshiko Hiyori. Looks like Akira and Miyu, and still no sign of dicks anywhere.
New manga about cute girls doing internet broadcasting
If anyone is wondering how /u/ was this show, just look at this picture. Yes, this was an actual dialogue from the show.
Didn't find a black chart as complete as this, but it's also ok.
I don't see much /u/-relevant things, except maybe the Wixoss.-movie. I don't even see a "cute girls doing cute things".
Of course more shows will be revealed in time, but things look bleak on the yuri-front.
It looks classically edgy to me. As soon as the blood was being spurred it was obvious this was a tragedy, and then the lesbians holding hands, rubbing faces and then it became obvious it is just another sad story with girls being fucked over.
The guy who wrote this was dying of cancer as he wrote it. He was bitter, and you can tell just reading it. Forget about lesbians getting a bad end. The world has no salvation. The message is "cynicism."
Is Chapter 7 the last chapter? Normally Penguin Club will release, mid-month, what the next's issue cover is, as well as contents. So for whatever reason they haven't . This wait is killing me.
probably a full house with the dykes in training.
I was talking bad ends in general, not only in /u/ content. I guess I should have added that I don't like "bad ends" because they are "bad ends" I like them when they are the result of the natural progression of the plot. I hate forced shit being happy or sad endings.The ones you mention fall in the "shit I don't like" category, though.
>discussion about bad ends
So, I was reading Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku that was announced to has anime adaptation and it's quite yurish. There is a legit yuri couple (pic related) and some subtext between other girls.
They all dead by the end, except for MCs.
There are other LNs in the series, that as japs say have more yuri, but which one will be animated is not clear might as well go full original.
New yuri anime greenlit. (Pic related)
>I don't even see a "cute girls doing cute things".
There is one right there in the chart. Also, "Glass no Hana to kowasu sekai" the movie is an upcoming yuri candidate. From summer, we'll be getting the full rooster. 2nd season of Kancolle, Attack of titan 2nd season (1 yuri couple), Pan de peace, Shingeki no Bahamut: Manaria Friends, Amanchu!.. and other shows I saw that contains yuri potential.
Wow, glad to know it's all still good. I never read the manga, so I was just going by the database description, which has it sounding yuri-ish. Who knows? The TV anime might edit things around and have it go a more yuri direction.
>Do they get it on with guys or something?
One girl does. To an extent.
Here's how I understand the whole ordeal: one girl likes the feMC. Then, some boy comes out of the blue and says she also likes the feMC. The girl gives up, realizing that "she doesn't love [the feMC] as he does" or something like that". Then the boy and the feMC apparently get some romantic subtext going.
The only hope the Amanchu anime may have is that it won't get that far. If it does it's fucked.
I thought Tamako market she still knew she liked her, but she knew she would never like her back 'that way'? Whereas in Amanchu (from what I can't gather) the girl 'realises' that her love isn't a romantic love.
Did Winterprison always refer to herself with Ore? I thought it was Top Speed who did and Winterprison's human form doesn't seem like someone who would use Ore.
Hopefully the first season does well enough to get Restart animated at least. Pfre and Shadow Gale are a really good pair and
they actually survive.
I remember somebody translating the page(s) of Amanchu where this happened, and I think the jist was that she said her love wasn't as strong because she wasn't a boy. So that's dumb. I'm probably wrong though; I'm not great at remembering things right before bed.
>What is New Game about?
It's about the day to day life at work in a company that makes video games.
As for the yuri levels, there's plenty of subtext, but not nearly as much as Kiniro Mosaic.
Then again, KinMoza is a pretty high bar.
>Did Winterprison always refer to herself with Ore? I thought it was Top Speed who did and Winterprison's human form doesn't seem like someone who would use Ore.
Yeah, you're remember right, but I just skimmed through it and couldn't find any instances of Winter Prison refering to herself at all. Well, she doesn't talk much.
Good to know there are some happy ends.
I think the yuri subtext can be even cuter than KinMoza, sometimes, because they're adult characters and are a little more open and honest than school girl characters. I'm not really sure if it's even that far off from Kiniro Mosaic levels, if you compare them both by yuri per chapter.
So, there's this.
Number one is not Fujiko Mine.
Oh well, dropped.
I don't watch anime with cute lesbian girls to see them die (and people who make it actually realize this, which is why endings like AnR's exist). I'll watch JoJo S4 for that.
There's a lot of variety/contrast in their reasoning for their appeals for some of the characters like Eli.
You think they prefer/fap more to Eli doing things or being on the receiving end of things? General portrayals even with her flagship ship has her pretty much half and half.
It's also nice that Fujiko's still getting a lot of love.
Hey, I like Fujiko just fine, but when your most notable trait is constantly stabbing your love interest in the back, it's perfectly valid to question your suitability as a romantic partner.
Just watched the first episode of Supergirl on tv. There is a very small chance we might get a lesbian Supergirl. We got some lewd hand-holding in the first episode, and maybe it was my yuri goggles, but I felt like there was a deeper meaning to it...
Uh, Haibara is not a meh character. She is awesome. I think this guy doesn't even watch Detective Conan to have described her as "tsundere." If anything she is kuudere, but I am hesitant to use a label for what is a pretty complex character.
>Extending on the missing webcomic thread, and posting here. Here is a new AHS page with more lesbianism:
I like how her shorts tell you what she's into.
No, regardless of which Mugino is on the field they're both fucking terrible and the sooner it becomes possible to filter him without /u/ falling to pieces because he tries to start every thread of note, the better.
Apathy. Mugino is easily ignored, unlike other autistic shitposters that spam, ban evade, etc. The most annoying ones are always Anonymous anyway. Not notable enough to give a shit.
Except not really. Just because a question can be considered as taboo doesn't mean it has no place.
Well sexual identity usually emerges when puberty hits, so it's definitely possible. However, its very improbable since gayness has never been as accepted as it is now and kids grew up believing gay was wrong, so they probably couldn't accept it until later on.
Not surprising at all but I'm still really excited. There's very few anime that I can look forward to these days. This is probably my favorite ongoing manga right now. Aoba x Hifumi is the main pairing here. Aoba x Nene is also good.
>Too bad the author is having pretty heavy health issues.
Last I heard the author/artist had hand issues (irony with the title?), and someone wishing to remain anonymous paid for the artist to have a high-end drawing tablet board, and from what I know that made things a bit easier. Were there other health concerns I didn't read about?
Something with leg, at least about year ago. I haven't read any updates in a few months, so I might've missed something (like I missed the tablet thing). It's good to hear that things are going easier now.
I'm a big fan of little girls doing the evil eyebrows look.
Is it seriously a sci-fi CGDCT I haven't heard anything about? Am I missing something? Kinda worried about http://myanimelist.net/character/100765/Masato
He also was quite nonintrusive, and didn't even appear in some episodes. The anime is strictly about the dolls and they day to day life, and not about the MC or the dolls' feelings about him.
It's kinda like Bottle Fairy.
To be honest, if one isn't incredibly fussy about Yuri, over the years there's been not a bad flow of shows which run the gamut from subtext to canon. Much better than in the distant past where there is really nothing at all to even go by.
SnQ with no het. Not that much of a good thing, if you ask me.
And as a "nice thing" I meant a sci-fi CGDCT. I really want one. This one doesn't seem to fit at all now that I noticed that they're also just small dolls.
Not just sci-fi, I'd love to see more SoL with any kind of novel setting. Everything tries to make its own niche by changing around what school club they're all in or other extremely narrow tuning of the archetype, to the extent that even a show that's just about teenage girls in modern Japan climbing mountains outside of school rather than teenage girls in modern Japan going to their Mountaineering Club comes off as novel and unique. There are much bigger ways they could distinguish themselves, but nobody seems to be taking them.
Actually, scratch that, just more setting variation in shows of all genres. It's not only SoL, everything seems to be stuck in a high school rut these days. Why can't we have, say, magical girls in a historical or fantasy setting, or pull a Shirobako and replace "cute girls balancing schoolwork and saving the world" with "very slightly older cute girls balancing careers and saving the world", or a not-TtS magical magical space opera / western / adventure? I'd like to see genre settings in general far less set in stone than they seem to be at the moment.
And more female protagonists and adventure series in general. It's been far too long since the last girls-with-guns show.
It was a trainwreck. Even the director was aware that it got fucked over because of resources getting redirected into Wizard Barristers after story planning was complete... which also turned out to be a trainwreck.
Shows of the genre you want are available (but could use more female protagonists) somewhat, just that they are all hetero, even with a female lead.
A rarity is of the same genre but yuri orientated. Female lead, but with a focus on her relationship/camarade with other girls, and they don't get involved with guys (but can be just friends with dudes).
You know, they are literally robots with visible robotic parts. Hard to get much more sci-fi than that.
Busou Shinki has some pretty awesome robot fighting PSP games so you can imagine people's displeasure when this turned out to be a cute girl show. Not that it's a bad thing. I personally dropped it because they killed an octopus and I felt bad for it.
Adventure is a pretty dead at the moment. Most authors seem to feel the need to have a steady status quo to return to between arcs, and either way it just doesn't work with single-cour shows. Production groups have gotten too conservative to fund multiple cours any more, especially not originals. Utawarerumono is a pleasant exception this season, even if it is straight as fuck and weaker than the original so far.
Also the mother is a total daughtercon
So the VA for Aoi Hana's Fumi and KMB's Agiri got arrested for cocaine possession.
And of course there's a flood of high Agiri fanarts and MADs (none /u/ relevant as far as I can see, so here's a nice YasuSonya one instead)
I knew I'd have to elaborate.
Stereotypical sci-fi on Earth with clean hi-tech everywhere (the world in Remember Me is pretty much like this, I think) and actual cute girls or human sized independent (or owned by the cute girls) cute girl androids. Just a cute SoL in a future world with nothing interfering with it.
Cyberpunk non-SoL with cute girls would be great too.
>Actually, scratch that, just more setting variation in shows of all genres.
I can easily agree with that. Not that I'm all against school settings but variety is great. There's nearly not enough good high fantasy anime.
I wish Mondaiji wasn't shit. It's /u/ relevant, even. But the Gary Stu ruined just about everything.
Izayoi was fucking fantastic to watch, though. I loved the hell out of Mondaiji.
That said, I can't remember of any amount of /u/ relevance from Mondaiji other than Shiroyasha being a pervert
in the exact same way Izayoi is.
He's a shit character and the show would only get better if with him completely removed.
>look how I'm advancing the plot because I'm so cool and cocky and have some unknown power!
Disgusting. Everything else is great and ED is god-tier so I tried to force myself to finish it.
Had to drop halfway.
I mean, I slightly hated the Accelerator's reflect-everything power in raildex but it's relatively much more tolerable in the end.
>I can't remember of any amount of /u/ relevance from Mondaiji other than Shiroyasha being a pervert
All it needs to be relevant, really.
Yeah, it's harsh, but having seen the death and strife that business cause, I can't be bothered to feel any kind of mercy for addicts. If America were a bit like Japan in stigmatizing drug use, that business would have died a long time ago.
Americans, and Europeans too, treat drug use as a quirk and as "harmless fun". That shit kills people every day, people who don't have anything to do with it. So, excuse me but fuck every single addict everywhere.
In my high school we got a lot of actual non-scare-tactics education about drugs, so I'm absolutely baffled whenever I hear that somebody in my area overdosed. Some people are just stupid, I guess.
Human beings will always want to get fucked up and prohibition has been proven time and again not to work. Long before drug use was treated 'as a quirk and "harmless fun"'
which it certainly isn't in my countrypeople were still using mind altering chemicals and being ostracized for it. Japan just happens to be lucky in being an island nation and therefore having more easily policed borders, unlike continental Europe and the States. America in particular is a huge part of why the drug trade is so violent and damaging to everyone involved.
But this really isn't the place for this conversation.
Prohibition can work, if it has education and social stigma attached to it. America and Europe have people who are regarded as "great" that are freaking addicts. We all know that, and we don't care. In Japan if it gets out that you are a drug user, your life is over. That's how it should be, everywhere.
And you're right, this is not really the place for this. Sorry, it just bothers me when someone decides too pity an addict.
The thing with the popularity of high school settings is that they're just really easy to use because everyone already knows what there is to know about them. So that's less work they have to put into the setting.
I don't dislike shitty male MC's because they're shitty. Getting assblasted about other peoeple's cartoon wish fulfillment being different than yours is pointless.
I dislike them because there are so many of them.
Sharing a weird thing that someone linked to me. Spoilered because reasons:
Some guy set up a camera to see what his wife was up to, this is what he found out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gutOml0lEfg.
>Mugino is for drug legalisation
Maybe that explains your insanity.
"Persons arrested in Japan, even for a minor offence, may be held in detention without bail for two to three months
during the investigation and legal proceedings. Further, penalties for drug offences include lengthy imprisonment.
Use or possession of small amounts of drugs may result in a prison sentence of between one and ten years and
Japanese law allows for a fine of up to 5,000,000 yen."
From Kansai Gaidai.
I'd rather be sober, healthy and actively-minded then a drug addict with a ruined body and mind or wake up in a police station and find out I killed somebody.
I don't care if I'm no 'fun' especially if that 'fun' involves taking drugs.
The US Government wages a war on drugs because they know how dangerous it is. Same with Singapore, Thailand and elsewhere. That's how it should be.
Corruption should not be tolerated either, in fact I imagine it contributes to a flow of drugs because of corrupt politicians helping to cover the drug gangs' tracks. That should not be tolerated either.
The sad thing is that some states now want to legalise these substances. Remember when the West almost destroyed China and took Hong Kong by flooding the country with opium?
Now the West wants to 'legalise' these dangerous substances.
If America wants to fight a War on Drugs, I am proud that my country is fighting with them.
I learn how hard is to find images of anime lesbians sniffing cocaine
I just noticed we have one series of cute girls doing bikes and two (!) series of cute girls doing bycicle things coming up. That's certainly impressive.
Perhaps they think he's a harem MC? And to be honest I haven't heard anything saying he isn't.
He really isn't. He's just a dude that likes to fight, and there are some girls that share the protagonist role with him that also like to fight. I figure you're just seeing other people judging based on appearances (or rather, what they THINK they're seeing since they obviously didn't look very closely) and assuming they know everything about the show they never watched.
What kind of idiot throws out the word "butthurt" at the drop of a hat like that? You can dislike a character but don't complain when someone criticizes you for it if your reasons are bullshit and lies. I don't even like him the most in the series, the girls are better. But I can see when someone is full of shit.
Not doing cocaine at that moment, but here's the daughter of a Colombian drug lord.
You did sound butthurt though. Even more now, actually.
And your previous post doesn't seem like criticizing to me. You just called those two anons crazy because you don't agree with them.
I think this conversation is pretty gay, but the person complaining about Izayoi's character in the first place said they only watched half of the show. That he formed his opinion from only partial knowledge means that he likely does not have as much familiarity with the subject as someone who has watched all of the show and possibly read the LNs. Do you understand now?
>You and Asuka were the exact same and you're not complaining about them.
Except they absolutely weren't, idiot. Not nearly as overpowered and not nearly as cocky. No "unknown" power and neither of them went to defeat gods like it's nothing since the first episode.
objectivelyshitty, I don't care if he's a harem lead or not. Don't you know what Gary Stu or, originally, Mary Sue is?
He's pretty much on the same level as Kirito.
>That he formed his opinion from only partial knowledge means that he likely does not have as much familiarity with the subject as someone who has watched all of the show and possibly read the LNs.
Doesn't mean anything. He was shitty enough in the first part to make me drop the show, he'd have to become a completely different character to change anything past that point. "You didn't finish it" is not an argument if all the important personality traits and story involvement were shown in the first half.
I'm watching it because I realized that overlooking something based on a poorly written plot summary is one of the dumbest things a person can do. And since it turned out to be something legitimately good, it seems that my open-mindedness paid off. I'd hate to be one of those cynics who just sits around never trying things but whines about "the sad state of the industry" all day.
It's not like that's anything unique. In the US your early 20s (ie. college years) are often referred to as the best years of your life, where you're in the perfect balance of freedom vs. responsibility.
Then I guess they should be praised then for getting one thing right.
Cracking down on drugs.
Takebe should be glad she did this in Japan instead of Singapore.
Over there, they have the death penalty and spankings.
If your only argument is that I'm insane for resolutely opposing drugs then we'll see how insane I am when you or your friend ends up in a mental asylum fucked up by schizophrenia while I am on the outside shaking my head at yet another ruined life.
"During the Meiji Restoration the downfall of China was fresh on their minds. A downfall that was largely fueled by opium and how it was manipulated by westerners to economically cripple and subjugate China. The whole point behind the Restoration (modernization movement) was to avoid western subjugation so strict drug laws were implemented to take away a possible economic weapon against Japan. Unlike China, Japan was able to enforce their opium ban as it was an island and Japan had centuries of experience controlling imports and smuggling. That and western nations figured that trading manufactured goods was more economically viable than another nation with too many opium addicts."
Good job Japan.
