>Siren TV ad
It took 3 episodes to introduce her but it was worth it
well she "zero arm" surname BUT Charlotte say she "autorize her to use her arm but without weapon she strong I can't wait to see use her arm
To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.
He is a man among men, of course.
Just look at his lipstick and studly hips and how he's clearly binding down a rack to rival Mirei's. How can he be anything but a perfect specimen of the masculine gender?
I was disappointed that she literally did nothing other than throw that one kick. The episode was titled after her so I expected more.
Either way, I just hope this "zero arm" gimmick doesn't keep her from getting a girlfriend.
Holy shit, Nyantype posters for VD get **LEWD**.
Can't read moonspeak, but apparently there's supposed to be some kind of short illustrated story in there this (or next?) month involving this.
*SOMEBODY PLEASE FIND AND SCAN THAT SHIT*
The uncensored raw is always the first thing that comes out. Currently the fastest way to watch the uncensored version with subs is to just grab the raw and then wait for Senketsu Subs to release the sub file, which has been out for hours now.
Nah, not really. She initiated it, but then Mirei dominated her with just one knee.
She's probably working with flat-chested-cowgirl-jew. Since that monologue about how she wished MeiFong would be more discreet.
And I'd put my money on her being one who gave MeiFong access to the dungeon on 2nd episode.
>Charlotte already jobbing
Can anyone stand up to Mirei in a fight? Kasumi did well but we all know gimmick characters will get taken down (and learn a lesson in the process) in the near future anyway
The yuri harem is over Hidan no aria AA. Valkyrie Drive is not a harem, but just a yuri show.
And I don't see all the fuss about Mcman. Even in the worst case scenario, since when a population must be 100% lesbian for it to count? As long as the leads are yuri, are also the main drivers of the show, and stay that way, it is good enough.
>Then why is "she" dressed as a guy when the island is only for infected girls?
She dresses like a man to appeal to the girls who have things for men, and feels like they are more likely to obey her if they think she is a man, and are crushing on her. Lady Lady saying s"he" is a hypocrite is a shot at the cross dressing and pretending to be a man. You het people will see all of that next episode, and then you can leave the Valkyrie Drive threads alone to never to spam them again.
Well, last week was more like the first time she knew what was going on and consented (not tumblr, just saying). This time she was really cute and did it herself, complete with titty grabbing. Is nipple sucking or licking too lewd to show though, even for this? I want Mamori to do that to Mirei.
For me it maters for the story. If "he" is a man, why is he on the island? If "he" is a woman, why is she crossdressing and why every women can't see she is a woman? I hope next chapter will solve this mistery.
>why is she crossdressing
To gain authority. The virus only affects women and by posing as a man she can tell them that she is in charge of the island and has contact with the people in the outside world.
Maybe, maybe there is a man on the island but everyone thinks he's intolerably disgusting including himself and he's just there to be NTR'd so hard until he dies from his heart literally shattering.
Why are people here so obsessed on having a male character in the anime? Didn't the casts pretty much confirmed that there's no male in VD?
And I think the Governor is a cross dressing female.
Not obsessed, worried is more appropriated
So far the anime has been pretty good for yuri fans who like fanservice, having a male character introduced now could mean having to deal with typical "Harem MC shenanigans" and having a bunch of girls lusting for him
As for what the cast said, they said there wouldn't be any male characters introduced in the future, which means that there could be a male that has already been introduced, and the Governor is the only one that fits the bill (COULD be a guy, not DEFINITELY is a guy)
I don't really think it would be an issue if Governor really is a guy, he doesn't seem like the "Harem MC" type, and even then, with that design i'm like 99,99% sure that it's a crossdressing girl
>As for what the cast said, they said there wouldn't be any male characters introduced in the future
But that wrong, the cast talked about how male seiyuus were irrelevant in the recording booth. For all we know shota can fall from the sky and he'd be voiced by a girl.
And no, I don't think this would happen or any other male love interest would make an appearance
This thread is like a caricature of /u/. Meanwhile /a/ is talking about how cute the lesbians are.
And doing lewd things to the Valkyries, but whatever.Does anyone have the translated version of this? And the one about the guvna.
The only thing about Governor that worries me is how big 'his' boobs will be. The possibility of 'him' having bigger and heavier tits than Lady J is higher than 'he' being token male character.
The creators of this show loves boobs. Why add a male character when you can add more female characters and have more boobs? Girls are always the reason people watch ecchi show.
I even said i'm fine with Governor being a guy, i was trying to explain why soome people would be worried with having a guy on the show
I don't really care if he is a guy or a girl, sure, if he is a girl then awesome, but if he is a guy i'm not going to drop the show and start shitposting on threads about him NTR'ing Mirei
Probably because there's another 9 episodes left and they don't want to give us all the fanservice at once. But I am really looking forward to seeing more of them.
Isn't the Governor supposed to be that kind of an archetype you find in a yuri/girls manga? You know the female with male qualities that in an all girls school other girls go head over heels over?
I'm really impressed at the fanart this show is getting
>>inverted nipple sucking
By that do you mean those annoying things where the nipples are in-ys (like belly buttons), or are you talking about two girls laying on each other with them in a 69 position with them sucking each others breasts instead of pussies? If you're talking about the later I'm good with that, but if you're talking about the former I'm against it (when I see that it makes me feel like their bodies are deformed, which I find both sad and ugly).
Just watched up to ep3 . Though the lewdness is appreciated I'm watching it expecting more fuflly moments between Mamori and Mirei. I'm loving them so far and hope they don't get separated by the end.
And yeah, Mr Governor Armstrong or whatever is manliness incarnate, specially with that voice.
I don't think the Lady Lady transformation's yuri level can be expressed without the up arrow notation.
They're probably easing us up with the other couples so that we won't be transformed into pillars of salt from its sheer glory when it finally happens.
Governor is either gay as Fuck, or female. He's much to flamboyant twink.
Misses " I can kick your ass without an arm, without an arm. And I can flex so hard it tears my tights, it tears my tights, it tears my tights."
Fuck I don't even know but now I gotta go listen to that. Really, idk why she reminds more of that song. But she's like secret top bad ass who had been somehow fucked over by Charlotte.
Can't find a smut of Kasumi, so here's a random yuri.
Comp Ace. I dont think is regularly scanned tho
>I don't even understand how zero-arm defeated Mirei. She just kicked her in the hand aaaand it's all over, lost the fusion.
She wasn't prepared for that type of attack. Is it hard to believe she may have been caught off guard by a type of attack she wasn't prepared for? Now that she's seen that fighting style she'll probably have a counter technique prepared. If the two fight again Mirei shouldn't go down so easy.
Again, she blocked it with her outstretched arm.
If it's something she can't handle, her arm should have went flying. But she took the full force with one hand and still somehow got KO'ed
This is most probably due to power level inconsistencies. It's a common occurrence in MC's in order to move the plot along. Don't get too worked up thinking bout it.
The only reason I'm not that mad about it, is because so far, Mirei is portrayed as a very competent and capable character, however, it would be kind of boring if she could stomp everyone without breaking a sweat every time.
So once in a while it's acceptable.
Now we need Chitaru as Governor McManly.
Any fan art of Rinka and Ranka?
This was posted on the /a/ thread earlier.
Haven't seen anything else yet, probably have to wait for the game to get closer to release.
In this week radio they confirmed that the BDs will have audio commentary by director Kaneko. And that the BDs will be uncensored just like the AT-X version. They said that ep 3 will also have Mamori's VA audio commentary.
They start by looking back on ep 3 story. Izawa was touched by the scene where Mamori cried for her parents and she said she cried when she first read the scenario. They talked about the difficulty of properly conveying the emotion in that scene. Both Iguchi and Izawa really like that scene. They also joked about how bright the censorship was.
In mail corner someone asked them about which character they like. Iguchi said she like Seto Asami, aka, Charlotte. Izawa also like Charlotte by second episode, she said Charlotte is like someone they just can't hate. Izawa said she likes Charlotte mouth. She said her mouth is cute like hamster's mouth.
Actually before answering that question they said something about Lady Lady kissing Mirei in ep 3 and Mirei will show her frustrated face and looking more girly or something. I think they mistake the episode number because I sure didn't remember seeing Lady Lady kissing anyone. They could be talking about a scene in ep 4. Can't really blame them for misremembering though, theres 5 months gap between the episode recording and the radio.
Second mail asked them about the ending song recording. Iguchi record her part first. She said she recorded the part at the end where they talk really fast in one take. Izawa said she could go faster.
Third mail asked Izawa whether she have told her Mom and suggest to do it while being in high tension or while rapping. Izawa said she thought maybe she can get away without telling her Mom. Iguchi asked her if she's okay with it, with VD being her first protag role and all. Doesn't she want her Mom to watch how much Mamori have grown within 12 ep and hear her thought about it? Izawa just screams inaudibly as her response.
I wouldn't call it fucking with the audience. That's a narrow perspective. Bishonen is very common in shoujo, just not so widely used in seinen. It's just a bit odd as a stylistic choice in a hugely ecchi anime.
He's not a bother as long as he doesn't come between the established yuri couples, which I'm pretty sure won't happen.
Lady Lady kissing Mirei
Woah! Now that's something I'm looking forward too. And when will Mirei's ex-waifu Momoka show up? Been waiting for it.
>Lady Lady kissing Mirei in ep 3 and Mirei will show her frustrated face and looking more girly or something. I totally called that there would be a training episode where Lady Lady teach them new love making techniques to increase their sync ratio.
>Seto Asami, aka, Charlotte
Now I know why I like Charlotte's voice so much.
>Lady Lady kissing Mirei in ep 3 and Mirei will show her frustrated face and looking more girly or something.
Yes. Please tell me they'll 'train' Mirei and Mamori in ep 4. This anime is everything I ever wanted. Thank you Kaneko.
Gosh, I really hope they don't fuck the Lady Lady couple. I will be mad, these 2 are my OTP, but I was already scarred because, ecchi. They have to make everyone kissing each other. Well at least it's for training purposes as I'm sure Mirei wouldn't be interested in Lady Lady. But still
Haha, don't worry, the lady lady couple are tight together. But you can't blame some flirting going on. Girls are hot, so some irresistible snogging is in order! And besides, Mirei has her hands full with the present and the ex-girlfriend (I expect some action and drama once she shows up).
I don't see the training, if it takes place, as threatening for Lady/Lady; they already seem like an established couple. More like it could be the chance to see Mirei/Mamori couple growing.
Some flirting is not bad, but I prefer it when it's between them :P
Hmm I've thought about this too.That they need Mirei to get away from the island. Plus, what was that Black box of Mermaid they were looking for? Maybe that black machine that all the girls enter the island with?
I 200% agree that I'd love more tender moments just between Lady Lady themselves.
My guess is the "black box" is something to do with how the shield works. A controller or power source or spare key or something.
Mirei should've jumped into her bed and calm her.
This, I was waiting for her to get out of bed, slid next to Mamori and hug her, patting her head. Mamori could then turn around and bawl into Mire's ample bosom, drifting off to sleep slowly. Such a missed opportunity...
It should be the opposite.
Mirei starts having nightmares about the war and Mamori realises that Mirei needs someone to be strong for her too and she jumps into Mirei's bed to comfort her.
This dark suit is a perfect sustitute to the typical male suit
They've only known each other for, what, two days? They need more time to get comfortable with each other. Also Mirei's child soldier background has clearly left her with deficiencies when it comes to social or interpersonal relations.
And yet she was ready to tear Meifong a new one by making Mamori cry. She's the best girlfriend
I don't think it would be right, taking advantage of her. I know, bit cruel to say that, but do ya really want your love to be fueled by a stockholm syndrome?
Let her sort her problems.
>Izawa was touched by the scene where Mamori cried for her parents and she said she cried when she first read the scenario
You know, I haven't watched this show yet, but considering the premise, this seems like bullshit.
I think all subtitles for it come out on Saturday, no matter if its funimation subs, or commie meme-subs, or whatever.
At the very worst, you just have to wait a few hours more than normal.
Why do you believe I have some underlying agenda?
To me, it seems like propaganda to say that the script was so good it made the voice actor cry. It's just some shitty opinion you can rightfully ignore if you don't agree with it.
Perhaps the voice actress just got into her role. It can happen.
Although now I like to imagine Izawa chain-smoking heavily and talking with a deep raspy voice about how she hates doing that cutesy squeaky voice and how she doesn't want to be type-casted into being meekish little girl characters after the recording of those radio shows is done.
Bonus points if she shittalks about all those otaku and how shallow and disgusting they are for liking fanservice ecchi shows.
Who? Mikako Izawa? Not relevant, because she's 3D and a real person, and will be contractually obligated to never talk about her own sexual preference anyway, no matter if she lacks a sex drive, is a hetero, homo, bi, or a sick deviant pervert who's into bestiality and snuff.
Fanart output seems to be picking up the pace and the quality a little bit.
>Not the other anon, but these are general search terms to find stuff. How about any ship names popular with fandom?
It is the name for that coupling, not just something like a tag or search term.
You get more stuff on twitter with that term that in Pixiv, oddly enough
I can translate the words, but I don't really get it. Also, you posted them backwards.
>Ma: What is it?
>Mi: There's something I'd like to know.
>Mi: [This is really vague, she's asking something about "time"]
>Ma: I can't hear you.
>Ma: Mirei-san, you pervert!
>Mi: I'm sorry.
>Ma: ...It's fine even if it's not there.
>(It's Mamori saying this, I guess?): ...By the way, it's the end of the month.
>To: Here's a calendar.
So yeah, I don't know. Is this about Mamori's period maybe?
At least on pixiv, MireMamo is indeed the most used pairing name for them. There's just not a lot of Valkyrie Drive art on pixiv to begin with, and some of the art that's up isn't tagged with any pairing names.
They do on Bhikkhuni at least
>As you continue to attack, your Liberator and Exstar Synchro will build up. By building up your Exstar, your Drive Gauge will evolve four times. For each evolution , the girls’ entaglement will further increase. As their power grows, the girls will transform into beautiful and powerful weapons.
From what I gathered so far, the Exter (a girl who can change into a weapon) needs to reach a certain frame of mind to transform, and having an orgasm is said to be the easiest and most straightforward way. However, the Liberator (a girl who can wield said weapons) also has to activate them, so an orgasm isn't enough on its own. In fact, if the Exter and Liberator aren't compatible, it doesn't happen at all.
There are some couples that are both Extar and Liberator. For example, if you notice Lady J is carrying a big weapon in the opening theme, which is apparently Rein, just like some blue haired girl who haven't appeared yet. Imagine the pain if everytime they have sex one of them turns into a machine lol
>just like some blue haired girl who haven't appeared yet
She appeared in the episode 2 flashback, though the color filter changes her hair color.
Also Nagi from A-Channel
One interesting thing is that almost all of her major roles are from anime produced by Studio Gokumi.
What did she do wrong? She would've totally got me.
I love how this pairing keeps getting cute comics
They probably are driving. Mamori will get attacked by one of Charlotte's lackeys, that's probably Mirei showing up to save her.
Mamori is still in her 'b-but we're both girls' phase. She needs more time to fully understand her feeling. If anything this is a chance for them to explore what Mamori means to Mirei.
I get you, I'm bothered too. But to be honest, I keep my expectations low regarding romance from Valkyrie. It's ecchi and fanservice after all, so mixed couple flirting is almost certain to happen
I want flirting between couples too. But 3rd person between them is always a no no for me.
Anyway, let's wait and see how Mamori will actually react around Akira. Maybe it won't be that important? Or Akira has some weird appealing to girls in general. I hope it won't get any messier, you can't just make romance in yuri only to have them drool over other people :P
Seems is gonna have certaind importance, if the pictures and Mirei's face are any indication
Wow, Meifong's song
Those posters make me think it's gonna be kinda played for laughs. Mamori will have kind of an idol crush on McMan, Mirei will pout, maybe they'll have a little argument and Mamori will storm out. Later she gets attacked by one of Charlotte's bitches in the woods, Mirei comes to her rescue and they things up.
At the end of the episode it'll cut to the castle and we get the reveal that McMan is actually McWoman and is fucking Kasumi.
I wouldn't worry about Akira in the long term. Mamori x Mirei are too official a couple for a real otherwise to happen. It's sometimes more interesting for there to be twists and turns before the expected endgame. And this sounds like a good set-up amongst many to slip in Momoka later.
what if Akira is her sibling who is also "infected" ,was taken away from the family before Mamori was born, and Mamori's parents never told her? which is why her parents were devastated when they found out Mamori also got the "disease".
I think the self insert character might end up being semi-harmless. The girls do still Drive with each other, and the manga looks okay.
Personally I don't care about mobage at all, so I won't be mad if this turns to be shit, and if it turns out to be good it'll be a nice bonus. I do hope it sells well either way to help the franchise stay afloat.
Did I miss something? Mermaid Vol 1 is ranked like 1,050 now on amazon dvd. Why the fucking huge drop?
It'd be kind of weird for all 3 legs of the series to totally flopped and be shoved to mobile or manga.
Amazon doesnt have a seperate rank system for BDs.
DVD ranking includes BDs and other forms of video.
It's #243 in Blue Ray anime which are subcategories but now it's #1063 in DVD where it was #300-400 for the past couple of weeks. I guess the event ticket appeal wore off?
But the vita game is ranking like crap. It most definitely does matter. Each of the three is there own thing and they advertise each other. It's stupid to be just an advertisement anyway when none of the other characters are in the anime. Siren's art looks like low tier shit and the anime has been too well animated to be just that.
Akira is a girl anyway and isn't it good that it is uncomfortable? It only shows how forced this was which is the point. The girl can force rape dreams onto other girls. It should be uncomfortable.
It's not about that I think she suddenly turned straight.
1) I don't like watching this shit
2) There's still 8 episodes to go and if they're doing this shit already, what makes you think they won't do it more in the future?
3) It's going to taint all discussion from now on
4) It's going to taint all the fanart
It's literally going to ruin everything.
>faceless men rape
I'm waiting for the sub and pls tell me this is a joke. I really have nothing else to watch now.
Which would make the reveal of him being a she even more hilarious
What Nico Nico comrades thinks:
>is this real?
>What were they thinking?
>no thank you im done
>This isn't what I wanted.
>i feel sick.
>What happened? Why?
>at least I can eat this week now
>Keep that in H-Anime please.
>This studio is bankrupt
>I wonder what the foreigners will think.
Still downloading the raw, but from what I've seen and what I've seen discussed, I'm only mildly off-put. Faceless man molestation is a turn-off, but I can live with it for one scene. The Akira stuff doesn't bother me in the slightest. I'm not overly invested in the main couple, and they're still really early in their relationship, anyway. I prefer things leaning toward lesbians, but I enjoy bisexuality, too. And it's pretty much assured Akira's not actually a man, anyway. I'M kind of starting to fall for "him," too.
>Faceless man molestation is a turn-off, but I can live with it for one scene.
If I could guarantee that it was just one scene and that nothing like that will ever happen for the rest of the series, I could let it go and move on.
But I think you'd have to be incredibly naive to think that something like that is not going to happen again.
Well at least they know that they fucked up.

That tweet is deleted now.
Welp, it was after all too good for this sinful earth, not surprised, but definitely depressed. Now we are back to subtextshit until something explicit comes along which will be shit for one reason or another. Another day in the life of /u/.
They asking sorry:

This was completely out of left field, Tusk was in the OP. On the other hand, it's a throwaway fap scene that happens in a dream and Mirei breaks out of it almost immediately to save Mamori. So take from that what you will.
When you're trying to sell a product to people and then make that product the exact opposite of what those people want you should expect that people will be pissed off and that you're going to lose money.
Japan always find a way. I'm gonna watch funi ep this time and hope that I'm blind by the time they reach sandmen and welcome next episode with fresh eyes. One unnecessary scene wont make me drop this.
That poster is probably an /a/ troll or anal-retentive cynic. Show's still yuri to me as well. Sometimes I have to admit I can't stand certain people's definition of yuri. If everything's not yuri to them, they are free to watch something else, but not clog discussion areas when people are trying to discuss stuff and the yuri.
